Terrible Accident
Many of the Passengers Were Asleep
When the Awful Crash
in Their Berths wru Crah
Carae It wa Gauged by the Careless
ness of Some One
YOUNGSTOWN Ohio > hily 3 Nine
teen passengers were killed and burned
t cinders at three oclock this morning
by a freight train telescoping a passen
ger train on the Ere railroad at Rav
enna Ohio forty miles west of here
and thirtyeicht or forty injured The
passenger train was standing at the
depot when the freight train struck it
sleeping cars and a day coach took
fire and were entirely destroyed TLe
train was bund for New York and
heavily loaded with passengers going
to spend the Fourth with friends A
special train was sent from hero with
surgeons and nurses to care for the
wounded The fire spread rapidly and
it was impossible to rescue many of
those injured and they were cremated
in the wreck The accident in loss of
life and property is the most extensive
ever suffered by the Erie railway The
day coach contained 1 party of people
from Findlay Ohio coming here to
spend the Fourth
PITTSBUIIG July 3A special from
Alliance Ohio gives the following ac
count of the Kevenna wreck t The day
coach on the rear of the train was com
pletely t telescoped and nineteen pass
engers killed and twentyeight badly
injured The day coach and the two
sleepers forward took fire and burned
up Many bodies were burned and are
almost unrecognizable Many pass
engers on the train were asleep when
tho awful crash came and a number
were crushed to death in their berths
A terrible seen followed There were
cries for help from all parts of the train
mingled with the dying screams of I
others whose lives were being crushed
out The steam began escaping from
the freight engine and soon the wreck
caught on fire and the flames crowded
upn those who were held fast in the
debris The few persons who escaped
without injury worked with almost a
superhuman power in their efforts t
rescue the more unfortunate ones In
several instances persons were slowly
burned to death While pleading with
their lust breath for help that could
not be rendered The wreck was most
complete Cars were pied upon and
across each other in an almost solid
Th muss Time the small party of
rescuers Worked at a disadvantage
and aa rapidly as the injured were
rescued they were conveyed t the sta
tion where the physicians from Raven
na an other nunr points rendered what
assistance a possible The fire was
finally extinguished but not until sev
eral persons had perished In a couple
Of hours the company had responded
and relief trains with a corps of physi
cians and nurses arrived from Cleve
land and other points and the injured
were given every attention Those able
t be removed were sent to Cleveland I
and placed in the hospital there the
dead were removed to the rooms of the
undertaker in Ravenna where they
will await identification Some are so
badly burned and disfigured that it will
ne adifflcult task to identify them
The coroner will begin an inquest this
iriorning The companys officials are
now here and will render all the assis
tance possible and will make a most
complete investigation I would ap
pear the whole accident was due t the
carelessness of some one by leaving
the switch open The heavy freight
train was running at the rate of forty
miles an hour and it struck the passen
ger train with full force I is rumor
ed that three members of the Pittsburg
base ball team were killed in the wreck
but it is not believed
CINCINNATI July 3The Ravenna
wreck has evidently caught the Find
lay and Cincinnati passengers eclu
sively The Chicago vestibule train was
met at Marcon Junction by the
through New York sleeper from Cin
cinnati where the latter was attached
to the rear of the train Last night
there was such an unusual number of
passengers from here that two sleepers
instead of one were attached These
are evidently the two reported des
troyed in the wreck The day coach
which was in rear and which was going
from Findlay to Younestown would
naturally be placed in the rear of the
Cincinnati sleepers und as a special
car it would not be sent out with less
than fifty passengers The probability
is that the casualitics may mostly be
tat csualte mosty
limited t that car Telegrams have
been received here from the Cincin I
nati people who were in one of the
sleepers saying that they had escaped
CLEVELAND 0 July 3A special
from Youngstown 0 says that the
worst railroad wreck which ever hap
pened excepting the Ashtabula honor
occurred this morning resulting in the
death of twentyfive people and the se
rious if not fatal injury of at least six
more Fire added its terrors to the
already frightful scenes One poor
woman was pinioned in the wreckage
and einattd before the eyes of the
spectators who worked to secure her
release until driven off by the flames
The east bound vestibule Xo S was
due at Youngstown at 255 a m but
was verv late and was not in running
order when the stop was made at lla
venna The engineer and fireman
of the passenger train went to work to
repair the engine and the train was
detained several minutes The flagman
was sent backbut went only a few feet
at most but two car lengths Suddenly
around a curve vest of the city came
train No 82 composed of wifts meat
cars The traiu was running tWtnt
five miles per hour uod coining down a
heavy grade The engineer supposed
he had a clear track and it being a
through train he was not expected to
top at llavennn He called for brakes
And reversed his engine hit all t no
purpose On came the freight train
with but slightly decreasing speed and
no word of warning could be given
to the people in the doomed train A
few feet west of the station the engineer
and fireman jumped alighting safely
A moment alter there was the
silence of death and then commenced
the most frightful cries ever heard of
moans of the dying and piteous cries
for help from imprisoned and helpless
passengers The mutilated and bloody
remains of the dead could be seen
through the fragment of the debris and
fonned a scene of horror that no pen
can picture The freight engine had
gone clear through thd day couch in the
rear and through the first sleeper and
buried itself in the second sleeper the
third car of the train There i nothing
left of the rear of the train but a mass
of debris and at the sides of the third
car turned about stood the monster
engine ae i to hold it a prisoner and
prevent further durance The scene
lasted but a moment when little
tongues of flame sprung up here und
there and soon the wjiple wreck was
burning I wasa sickening sight Two
cores of imprisoned passengers in the
debris and the flames lighting up the
surroundings with a lurid glare served
only to intensify thehorror As soon
as the dazed passengers in the other I
cars recovered themselves they rushed
to the rescue of their unfortunate com I
panions The fire drpartmentjwas im
mediately telephoned for and every one
in that end of the little city rushed to
the scene of disaster Hundreds soon
surrounded the wreck but to little pur
pose The awful ruin had been wrought
and little was left to do but to secure
and care for the remains of the dead
The few passengers that could be easily
reached were promptly rescued and sev
eral bodies of the dead and dying were
carried to the depot platform

George Holman engineer of the
freight train in an interview said he
couJd not see how he could be blamed
He further said I could have stopped
the train but the rails were wet and
the sahd would not take I was not
warned in time and I could not bee
lights on the end of the passenger train
owing t the darkness and fog I re
versed the lever as quickly as possible
and with the fireman jump d from the
train sustaining a severe fracture in
the right hand Holman seems to
think that the brakeman of the passen
ger train Fred Brynton could have
flagged him from a greater distance
RAVENNA 0 July Nineteen
people were killed and twelve injured
at an early hour this morning in the
most frightful railroad accident of the
present year At 3 oclock the east
bound express on the Erie was lying at
the station while some repairs were
being made by the engineer Flagman
Boynton was started back with a lamp
to war off any possible danger from the
rear Suddenly without waining the
headlight of a locomotive flashed
around the curve and the fast stock
train dashed down the steep grade from
the west crashing into the rear of the
passenger train that was standing
quietly at the depot There was some
dreadful mistake Nineteen precious
human lives were crushed out in a
moment and twelve persons were
maimed and injured
The passenger train was about ten
minutes late owing to the trouble with
one of the cars The train at the time
of the accident lay on the main track
just at the bottom of the steep grace
and though the trainmen knew they
were followed by the fast freight no
on e seemed to think the freight was
at their very heels and once on the
down grade coining into the station it
was a hard matter to stop especially
as the freight did not intend to make
Ravenna its stopping place What
might have been expected actually hap
pened The freight as making time
and came down the hill with a rush
the engine and tender being fairly
hurled through the rear cars of the pas
senger When your correspondent
arrived on the scene after the accident
the scene was awful Piteous
cries ior help aioie from the heap of
wreckage and willing hands were al
ready tearing at the heaps of broken
and twisted timber and iron Sudden
ly here and there tiny tongues of flame
sprung up from the crevices of the
wrecked train Fire had added to the
horrors of the wreck and fight as they
would the rescuers could not drive the
ugly element back one foot from the
writhing victims who shrieked and im
plored in vain for the help that was
willing enough but which was far too
weak to tear aside the iron and tim
bers before the reck and flames had
done their worst There were very
few injured who did not die and
verv few dead who were not bruised
and broken end blackened and burned
out of all semblance to the form of
their Maket
Tom Hanley of Corning who as in
the fatal rear car with a score o fellow
glass workers on their way home to
Corning after the seasonswork in
Ohio says it was a miracle that a sin
gle occupant of the car escaped to toil
of what followed the crash I was
bal asleep sold he when I fancied
I heard a man cry out in alarm I was
too sleepy t fully investigate 1
danced around the car and sunk back
into my seat Opening my eyes the
next moment it seemed l as if I i had
fallen asleep and had wakened in an
I other world I seemed to feel no shock
only a smothered crash and a dull sen
sation of pain resulting probably from
the terrific blow 1 received on the back
ol the head Then the realization of
what had happened came only too
soon as the most horrible groans ana
cries came from every side from the
poor fellows who a monent before had
been exchanging some cheery remark
Then came the lire and with the first
blaze I stopped my ears to the screams
of p l in and terror 1 was wedged in
by some one my friend probably but
he was so bent twisted and doubled
under and about my les that I
could not tell what it was except that
it was 1 human being living at one
time but dying now Many were
caught and pinioned to their seats or
squeezed against the walls of the car
or against the engine that
had dashed into and through
the cars Wherever they were
there they stood or lay pleading iu
vain for help and seeing every moment
flames creeping closer and closer
winding about their limbs and licking
their faces and one by one their cries
were stilled My escape was simply 1
miracle and carae about through no
effort of my own I was forced or
knocked forward to a break in the car
and after hard word I extricated my
1gs from thd mass of wreck and human
forms and found myself standing in
the outside air badly hurt but alive
PITTSBUBG Pa July BA special
from Ravenna Ohio says I is as
sorted by Supt Mattison who is in
vestigating the disaster that the acci
dent was due to the carelessness of the
passenger ciew Tne train was in
charge of Conductor Boynton and his
son was rear flagman who instead of
going back leaned against the rear
coach until the train was in sight and
then it was too late t stop it On the
person of Willis Kane of Corning N
Y glass blower waVfound S300 He
had been saving his money to surprise
his widowed mother and death stopped
his journey
lUvpxa 0 July 3Tliere was no
delay in ready assistance but all ef
forts were fruitless until the arrival of
the city fire department But the names
could not be stayed until the water
had been poured into the wreck for
hours It seemed to agonize the on
lookers but all human power could
do fA done At daylight the flames
subiu and the fearful crowd of
several hundred stood at the station
gazing on the sickening sight while
all about them was the smothering
odor of burning human flesh arising
from the mass of black mete and heaped
up wreckage Ifow and then the eye
chanced upon little shreds of clothing
or charred flesh and bones
each and all blackened and
roasted to a horrible degree Possibly
the most horrible sight if one could b
worse than anot er was the appear
ance of the boiler of the freight engine
In the first shock the front end of the
boiler was broken in and as the engine
ploughed its way through the mass of
humanity four poor fellows were actu
ally scooped up in the cauldron
wounded and helpless and there they
lay slowly roasting to death before the
eyes of the spectators who would but
could not aid them These were after
ward fished out by piecemeal by fre
mens hooks and covered with sheet
ingAid for the wounded was soon at
at hand but for the dead there was
nothing but to hide them from sight as
soon as possible The Atna building
was tranftrred into a morgue and as
masses of the burned flesh were hooked
out they were hastily removed there and
either stretched at full length or hud
dled in little heaps An enormous crowd
gathered about the morgue but the
doors were closed Some morbidly
curious crept up to the windows only
to fall back aghast at what they had
seen which was nineteen remains of
what had been human covered with
sheeting through which bare blacked
limbs now and then protruded while
blood soaked through white cloth and
puddled on the floor
Coroner Sherman with assistants
stepped from one to the other search
ing for letters or some means of iden
tifying one mass from the other This
was dillicult In halt a dozen instances
the entire head had been burned off
leaving only the blackened trunk grim
and ghastly defying all efforts at iden
tification Xames and other data could
only be secured from surviving friends
Xo one could tell one trunk from
the other Among the entire nine
teen beheaded boJies but two
had retained anything resembling fea
tures of a human being I was here
in the morgue that the most touching
and awful discovery of the night was
made The coroner tenderly removed
from one form a clotted sheet to find
beneath it the unmistakable form of a
woman and worst of all clasped in
her arms as if to shield its young limbs
from the flames that had evidently con
sumed both was an infant child She
had shielded the babe until the last
and even in death her blackened arms
were unwilling to be separated from
their charge
The coroner has been so busy all day
gathering means of identification that
nothing has been done toward an in
quest but a searching examination is
now being made of the survivors
One fact has impressed all here and
that is not one tiain man met any in
jury W I Jones of Meadyille Pa
conductor on the freight train giving
his version of the affair said We
were running at a moderate rate of
speed but the grade was steep and we
had a very heavy train The flagman
was not far enough out and we could
not see him in time to stop All the
trainmen got off in time to escape in
jury The two sleepers were the Warsaw
and Ascoli The rear car was a spe
cial in which was a party of glass
blowers This car and the Warsaw
next to it were completely destroyed
The wreck will be an expensive one
from a financial standpoint as the loss
will foot up in the neighborhood of
100000 By nine oclock the wrecking
car had the debris nearly cleared and
the ounded being cared for I
Trainmaster Corbin was also on the
scene Superintendent Mattson would
give no opinion nor make any state
ment in regard to the wreckbut the case
will be fully investigatedaud the strict
wi fuly inestgatedand strct
rules of the Erie system be enforced
Many wild rumors are afloat but none
of them are 0 thy of credence and
only a close investigation can place the
blune where it belongs
RAVENNA Ohio July 3Albert
Smith of Corning N Y who escaped
with a broken leg tells his experi
ences as follows 1 was in the rear
of the coach asleep The stopping of
the train awoke me I heard the roar
ing of the meat train and had just
rused the window to look out and see
what was the matter when I
was thrown through the open
window and landed twenty feet
from the car alighting on my leg and
dislocating it I fainted from pain
I which i l had become l intense When 1
came too I was at the Etna house and
a surgeon had just finished setting my
leg Willie Kane of Brooklyn was
sitting in the seat in front of me and
it was to answer his question of
VhatJs th matter that I
raised the window which act proba
bly saved my life as he was
caught in the car and burned to death
Mary Magill another survivor says
I was sitting in frontof the day coach
and suddenly felt an awful jar Some
one said it was an air brake and every
thing would be all rightPoon Just then
my brother came in all covered with
blood and his clothes torn He told me
we were all right but that the rear
coach was destroyed and all the boys
were hurt or killed I could hear the
groans of those who were burning it
was awful
Of forty glassblowers who occu
pied the rear coach seventeen were
killed All tle others were more or
less injured and two fatally
This afternoon an inquest was held
in Ravenna courthouse the object be
ing to find out who is responsi
ble for the wreck About twelve wit
nesses were present but only two tes
tified when the inquest adjourned
Secretary Foster ieiiies Ever Writ
ing to Jordan
Offering Him His Old Postion in the Bureau
Oferng Od
reau The Secretary Talk Freely
of the Trouble
WASHINGTON July 3The Secre
tary of the Treasury received a letter
this morning from Grand Master
Workman Powdcrly of the KnIght of
Labor renewing the case of the dis
charged plate printers in abaut the
same tone as his statement to the pub
lic and in addition intimating that
the Knights of Labor will appeal the
case to the President
WASHINGTON July Secretary
Foster in speaking on time subject to
day said that tie letters which
one of the discharged men claims to
have received from him offering him
his old position in the bureau was not
sent by him The Secretary explained
that he was discussing the case with
Messrs Cavanaugh and Devlin and
had submitted several propositions to
them which did not seem altogether
satisfactory He said he was willing
to appoint seven men to places in the
bureau with the understanding that
Jordan who is making a good living
would not return to work They want
ed more than this continued the Sec
retary and said they were afraid i
Jordaifwere offered a place with this
understanding and it shoubl l get to the
ears of Tereditli lie would
crow over them and boast
they had been defeated I went o far
as to draft a letter to Jordan There
had been several papers written during
the conference in about these terms
Places were to be found for other six
men and would he accept a position in
the bureau I agreed to give them this
letter to be given Jordan if they should
promise on their honor as len that they
would either return it to me or hand
me Jordans declination I done this
to soothe Jordans feelings as it were
All this was contingent on reaching
an agreement When I showed Dev
lin and Cavanaugh this letter they de
clined my terms and I shoved the let
ter to one side with the
rest of the rejected manuscript
We were discussing the situation
further and endeavoring to find another
solution when I received a rard of the
delegation representing the federation
of labor Leaving Devlin and Cava
naugh for a few minutes I went over
to talk to the new comers who told me
some facts I did not know before For
instance they informed me there are
now about fifteen apprentices in the
bureau waiting for presses Who under
the rules are entitled to presses ahead
of chance men This would so reduce
available new work that men who are
now on chance roll would not all get
presses in tie new building Thus to
put on seven dismissed men would
throw out printers who are ahead of
them After further talk on the sub
ject I returned to Devlin and
Cavanaugh and soon afterward the
conference broke up The letter to
Jordan though signed was but a draft
and was not intended to bo sent if he
received i The delegates from the
Knight of Labor must have taken it
from my desk It had been previously
rejected by them I do not accuse any
of them of stealing the letter but I do
say that the letter should never have
gone to Jordan I was null and void
When I returned to my desk I said
Good bye and swept the papers into
the drawer but I did not notice the
letter was gone I have no reason to
think they took the note sent to me
by the delegates of the federation from
Mr Powderly The name was put on
the card by my private secretary in
order to identify the people in my

all the walks of life It was a great
battle and was won by Lange after
eleven rounds had been fought Both
men were in good condition and both
tipped the beam at 216 pounds At 1
ocock Colonel Jim Donaldson called
time and the men came together The
first round was spent entirely in spar
ring and little was done In the sec
ond Shade led and landed lightly on
Langes neck The latter countered on
his jaw No damage was done In
the third round fighting commenced in
earnest After heavy exchanges both
men clinched and fell with lade on
top followed by another clinch in
which Slade got in some roasters The
round ended with honors even Lange
opened hostilities in the fourth and
followed it with some terrific
swings 6n Slades neck and
jaw After a clinch Lange
knocked Slade down with a right hand
swing and could have knocked the
Maori out as he arose but he used poor
judgment and Shade saved himself by
clinching Both men were winded
when the fifth round opened but to
wards thd close Lange got stronger
and closed b Shades right optic and
dislocated his jaw Nothing was done
in the sixth round but Lange was in

men were covered with blood when
they went t their corners The men
came up groggy in the eighth and
Slade repeatedly l clinched to avoid pun
ishment Lange got at him however
and sent him to his corner in bad
shape The Maori presented a pitiable
spectacle when he came up for
the tenth round His jaw was
swollen both eyes closed and
lie was bleeding ireely while Lange
had scarcely a scratch Slade showed
great courage however and was game
to the lasl Everybody expected to see
liihi knocked out this round but by
good generalship ho ayoided punish
ment The contest Ws announced to
je ten rounds but the referee ordered
the men to continue and the eleventh
round commenced Slade acted entire
ly on the defensive while Lange was
looking for I chance to deliver a knock
o utblow The Maori gave him no op
portunity and although he was badly
battered he stayed in the ring The
referee ordered another round Slade
refused to go in and took off the gloves
The referee therefore awarded the
fight to Lange
