HKVKKLY MATTHLW'S
From Sunday's Paper.
One of tht evils forcibly called
attention to by the horrible catas
t rophe at, Brvau the past week,
and which formed. one of the just
causes of grievance on the part
of the sti ikiug trainmen on the
M. & O. railroad recently, is that
of running double-headers- two
engines to one freight train. It
is doue by the companies in a
spirit of economy, forcing one
train crew to handle what really
ought to be twotraius. That it is
false economy, and not too fre
quently leads to loss of life and
property, was illustrated in
the awful accident of last Wed
nesday. This is one of the mat
ters which should engnge the.at
tentidrr of the law maker s and the
no d'oubt it will.
The vague, indefinite way of trx
ing the responsibility for such a
serious wreck as that of the past
week by statiug that it is sup
posed to have resulted from the
blunder of an operator, is unsat
isfactory to the public who are
forced to patronize the railroads.
There should be a legal investi
gation aud the blame for such an
accident fixed upou tlvv, right
man and punishment tpiiied.
The method of roilroadiug in; the
South is too lax and the remedy
is the law.

F ar r Acarie iy Closing.
The closing exercises of Frank
lin Academy, signalizing the
completion of the eighty-second
annua! session of this institution,
will be held on next "Wednesday
at the chapel. The exercises
this year wiil not be as elaborate
a. the preceding year's exer:
cises, both principal and faculty
; agreeing that the preparation of
the opera house program inter
fr.apceq the students' studies too
much and hence the closing ex-
ercises this year will be simpler
and more appropriate, enabling
the children to carry on their
studies right up to the closing
hour the real work of the
school after all.
As will be seen from the pw
grai.es below the exercises-are
interesting and will be partici
pated in by all of the students
aud Prof. Cook invites all of the
patrons, parents and public gen
erally to attend. At the evening
exercises a small admittance fee,
ten cents, will be charged which
will go to the piano fund, the
school needing a new instrument
very badly. The following are

The full details of the wreck
at Bryan, Ala., on the line of the
Southern Railway between this
city and Birmingham confirm
fully all of the rumors circulated
here following the awful catas
trophe. The wreck occurred at
1 :30 o'clock last Wednesday
morning, the watches on the
poor victims of an operator's
blunder stoppinc at this hour.
The trains wrecked were No.
73, a second class freight train
west bound, and a double-header
extra east bound. The wrest
bound and east bouud trains
were both drawn by powerful
engines of the battleship type
and the extra east had an addi
tionaleuginein front, No. Us, which
was fired by Otto Wood, of this
city, one of the victims. It is said
that No. 78 stopped at Jefferson
and both the engineer and con
ductor entered the station aud
asked the operator if he had auy
orders for them. The operator
was lying down apparently sleep
ing aud replied that he had not,
although on his desk he had an
order for the freight to meet the
extra at Littleton. The train
pulled out and a few. muuTos
biter both came tog"iher in a
heal end collision about one mile
east of Bryan. Both ira'ns were
running at a high raio of speed
aud the wreck was complete. All
thi'e.e eugines were torn to pieces,
aud engines, trucks, teuders, :
box cars, coal cars, hay, oats
aud other freight were piled up
in endless eoni'usiou. Two tanks
of oil wore emptied on the mass
of wreckage and a tierce fire soon
spread over the whole aud it
burned until the entire mass
was consumed.
It is a remarkable record that
every eugiueer and fireman who
went into the wreck is dead All
were killed outright except En
gineers Acton and Johuson.
Poor Actou died on the way to
Birmingham and Johnson died
soon after reaching that city at
Copeland's infirmary. The oth
er bodies remained in the wreck
and tire until Thursday before it
was txissible to recover them. A
pathetic incident is related of
one of the negro firemen who
was a victim of the wreck. He
was pinioned between an engine; g Kliett was sueiug torocoviu
and tender, his limbs being ',.irriQlia BIlct..ill(l,i uv i-fi,
. , j
him but those near were power
less to render him assistance.
As the tire came nearer he at
tempted to smother and beat it
oack with the oats piled around
him, but in vain, and finally he
succumbed.
All of the men killed were
from Birmingham except 'Mr.
Otto Wood, of this city. Mr.
Wood had recently been promot
ed to a main line run from this
city and he was learning the
road tiring while engaged in this
task-in order to make as much
wages as possible. All of the
bodies of the victims were car
tied to Birmingham except Mr.
Wood's body; and escorted by a
uu mber of firemen and other
railroad men it reached this city
Friday morning.
Otto Wmx1 waS'One of the best
known aud most esteemed of the
Southern's employees in this
city. For several years past he
had been iu the yard at this
point iu charge of the switch en
gine and his efficiency as an eugi
ueer had won for him a promo
tion to a regular run and he was
eugaged in prepai iug himself for
this position wheu he met his
death. His untimely demise is
peculiarly distressing. He leaves

and mother aud four brothers
and one sister, besides hosts of
