CIP S'JLati 211 fi Express Trains Crash in Fog Near Talford Crossing Engine Plows Through Five Passenger Coaches XQ Are Hurt. OLD FASHIONED SIGNALS HELD CAUSE OF WREBK Catastrophe Occurs on First Day of New Road Head's Administration New Signal System Now in Preparation. NKW HAVEN, Conn.. Sept. 2. From ten to twenty-five persons were killed and seventy-live injured shortly before i:30 this morning when the White Mountain express, southbound on the New Haven load, crashed into the rear end of the Par Harbor ex press No. 91 at Talford crossing a mile north of North Haven, Conn., eight miles from this city. Farly estimates greatly exceeded the list of killed, which it is stated will not exceed lifteen. The Par Harbor express had stop ped at a banjo signal which was set at stop. In the dense fog the following train failed to see the train ahead ana plowed through five of the rear coaches, all of which were heavily loaded. Coroner iMix of this city was Imme diately notitied and with a corps of physicians was quickly on the scene. The dead and wounded were scattered along the tracks and many of them were gathered together as quickly as possible and taken to New Haven Wallingfortl trolley line not far distant where they were started for the New Haven hospital. This stretch of road is being equipped at the present time with a new ssytem of signals to re place the old style banjo signals which haT been in use for many years. These signals had been condemned fowowmg a wreck on the line of road between this city and Hartford, by the Connecticut public utilities com mittee. It was only recently announced following the series of wrecks on the road that the signal system would be greatly changed. Hy a curious coincidence, this is the first day of the administration of Pres. Howard Elliott on the New Haven road, succeeding Pres. Charles S. Mel len, whose resignation followed a se ries of attacks upon his management of the road. All the available ambulances were rushed from this city to the scene of the wreck. It w;ts decided to send the injured to this city by trolled and the first carload arrived at the New Haven hospital shortly before 9 o'clock. It was said that the dead were still l.vjng beside the wreck and that many of the injured were also being cared for temporarily pending removal to hospitals. The scene of the wreck is at Talford crossing, a mile from the nearest station and telephone and in a sparsely settled section. The White Mountain express was No. 95, and tho first section of the train, while it was the second section of the Par Harbor express. A. R. Miller of North Haven, was engineer on train No. 9.". which crash ed into the train ahead. He jumped and saved himself. He was inter v iewed by coroner's physician Good rich of North Haven, shortly after the wreck occurred and said: "Owing to the fog I was unable to read the banjo signals along the line of the road without running very close to them. We came to the banjo sig nal - mile north of the oNrth Haven station, which was set against us. I immediately applied the emergency brake, but the crash came before I could net action on the brake. There was absolutely no chance to stop." Conductor Also ll-caixx. K H. Fowler, conductor of No. 9 5, also escaped uninjured. He told Pr. Good rich that Engineer Miller's statement was correct so far as he was able to observe. He said there was absolutely no chance to see but a few feet ahead owing to the fog. Conductor D. C. Adams. of train No. said that his train stopped at the signal a few minutes after 7 o'clock. They were standing there but a min ute when the. crash came. This statement was issued by the New Haven road at 9:?,0 a. m.: "At T o'clock this morning the first section of the White Moun tain express No. 9.". ran into the rear end of the second section of the Par Harbor express No. 9". at North Haven. The two rear sleep ers of the Par Harbor train were telescoped. Thirteen dead have been removed from the wreck and twenty are injured." DIPS FIRED OUT OF TOWN LAPORTEM. Sept. 2.

The arrest was made by John Plaul. Chicatro detective, who is ac quainted with all the "dips" of that cite. The police nad no evidence against the men and they were per mitted to go. A gang of pickpockets, supposed to have been the same gang that has been operating at South Bend, was here Thursday, but Plaul recognized the tactics of the m?n and they wcro dispersed.

CUMMINS ATTACKS "SHORT SELLING" Pronounces Practice as the "Greatest Vice" of Day and Dangerous to Financial Strength of Country. WASHINGTON, Sept. 2. - "Short selling", on tho New York stock ex change, the Chicago board of trade and on cotton, produce and stock ex changes generally, was attacked by Sen. Cummins in the senate Monday as the "greatest vice" of the day, and a menace that threatens the indus trial and financial strength of the country. Supporting an amendment he had offered to the tariff bill proposing a ten per cent tax on all trades where tho seller did not actually own the property sold, Mr. Cummins delivered a vigorous criticism of stock and pro duce exchange operations, and urged that congress do its utmost to dis courage or prohibit fictitious trading, which he characterized as "gambling" Called Gambling. Transactions on the New York stock exchange for 1912 were cited by Cummins to show the extent of the "gambling", which he declared was breaking down the moral fiber of the business community and saddling im mense burdens on the public in the way of fictitious value of stocks. The sale of stock of some railroads and industrial corporations, he declared, had been from ten to as high as 25 times the entire stock issue of the road, while but a small proportion f stock had actually changed hands. Sen. Cummins declared tho stock exchange should be restricted to actu al sales. "As it is now, it is not a place for the transfer of actual com modities," he added. "It is a place where experienced and reckless and unscrupulous men balance their wit.. It Is a place where menof great men tal capacity and audacity as well, fight a battle of supremacy, employing not the means which ought to inllu enco the price of commodities but every means which may tend to af fect the price of things in which they have dealing." lie declared the old Louisiana lot tery was a "pink tea compared with this orgy of vice," represented in the stock exchange.

Judge Hutchinson an nounced his decision Monday nlghL Ho had weighed the matter care fully all day, noting meantime the ever swelling crowd pouring inM Sherbrooke for the fair. n the l'pa of nearly every one w.us a sympathetic word for Thaw. Taking cognizance of this and of the outbnak of last Wed nesday, when Thaw was cheered in court as a hero, the judge decided that the wisest course would be to ex clude spectators. Reporters Outido. Reporters also are to be barred. according to arrangement, and whilo the Thaw lawyers may be present in a body if they so desire, only two representing New York are to tako part in the proceedings. They aro Samuel Jacobs of Montreal, chief Ca nadian counsel for the state, and Hec tor Verret, appearing for the Matto awin asylum. Thaw is to bo driven from the Jail to the court house in a closed carriage in charge of (Jov. La force.

Thaw's lawyers maintained Monday night that the writ having been sued out by a disinterested party. Jhn Rordreau, chief of police of Coati cook, will not bo upheld. Counsel for New York were equally emphatic in declaring that Thaw sould be released and seized for deportation. Poth sides were prepared to light to tho last ditch Thaw's lawyers to keep him in jail; New York's to get him out. Mr. Jerome expressed no surpri.':? at tho decision of Judge Hutchinson.

Police arrangements which were g t under way Monday to me t possible pro-Thaw demonstrations in court room or on the streets were held in abeyance Monday night, although it was understood that both the Domin ion and provincial secret service and the Dominion and provincial uni formed forces would be on hand in case of emergency. The holding of the hearings in chambers raises the problem MoikI.iv if the writ is sustained ;md Thaw ia automatically set at liberty, will the immigration odiccrs have a right to enter the chambers and arrest him.
