Tho wrecked train was tho first sec
tion of a picnic which had been held at
Schiller park, about 12 miles wost of
the city. The picnic was held under
tho auspicies of tho Ancient Order of
United Workmen, and fully 3,000 peo
ple were in attendance. The first sec
tion consisted of 13 cars, and loft tho
park shortly after 8 o'clock for tho re
turn trip to tho city. All tho cars were
densely crowded and many people were
standing ou the platforms of the cars.
Tho picnic train was not running at
over 10 miles an hour, and when it
neared Alteuheiin, tho switchman at
tho depot opened a switch to transfer a
freight train and did not close it in
time to prevent the picnic train from
dashing upon a siding where a train of
empty coaches was standing waiting
for a clear track in order that it might
pull up to t)ij picnic grounds for a load
of picnickers. Tho picnic train did not
strike the train ou the siding with

notify the city police of the accident
until threo hours after it had occurred,

up at Harlem. James Grain, engineer
or excursion train; William Dolan, lire
man on same engine; Miko O'Donnell,
engineer of switch engine drawing
freight train; James Median, fireman
of same engine; J. V. Kniskern, oper
ator, who, it is alleged, caused tho fa
tality. Tho chief blamo for tho accident Ls
laid upon Kniskern, who, it is charged,
carelessly walked away without throw
ing back the switch, so that the picnic
train could pass on the main track.
James Gram was the engineer of tho
passenger engine and William Dolau
was his fireman. Neither received any
injuries of consequence Michael
O'Donnell, tho engineer of ono of tho
freight engines, was in his cab with his
fireman, James Median, at the timo of
tho collision, and thoy, too, leaped early
enough to escapo serious injury. They
wero cut a little by flying splinters.
