THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1886.
LOCKED LOCOMOTIVES. A Wild Freight Dashes Into a Pas senger Train. A Bad 'oIlmion en the '., B A .--Nertona Rrfmlfsof the Acci dent. A serious and perhaps fatal accident occurred on tbe C.,B. Q. road two miles east of Moline. at about 10:35 last night. a freiirht train running on wild time dash ing iuto a passenger traiu, resulting in painful injuries to several pasen?ers and train men, and the engineer on the passen ger train receiving bruise9 and cuts which may cause him his life. The particulars ofh te unfortunate affair as neatly as they can be obtained, place tbe blame upon the freight train crew which left ltuck Island at 10 o'clock last night fur Gaksburg. The train was to run on regular- lime to Moline, from whence it was to continue at. a wild train. It left Moline ab mt 10:30 and when two miles out met the incoming Savanna, which was five minutes late and traveling at the rate of about forty -five miles an hour. The locomotives rushed into each other and locked, the engineers and lire men on both locomotives having scarcely time to leap. The passenger, due at Itock Island at 10:45, was in charge of Conductor F. E. Hand, was pulled by locomotive 64, F. C. Heady engineer and Joseph Dvmpsey firertian. Conductor,!. S. McKcnsie bad the freight train; the ngioe was 341, with L. Scott engineer and KM. Cummings fireman. The pas sentrer train consisted of the engiue and way car bound for Birstow where a train was to be picked up for Galesburg There were on the passeuger train besides the iocouiolive, a combination car smoker and baggage and an ordinary passeDger coacb. THE COLLISION. As the two trains came together there was a terrible shock, no one on board either, except the men in the cabs realiz ing what had happened until all was over. It seems that the engineers on both trains had seen the approaching headlights ahead, but as Ibe C., B & Q and C, R. I. it P. tracks are parallel for a consider able distance there, eich thought the other train was on the ('., R I. A P. track. As soou as possible a train was sent up from thi6 city, with Or. Cilvin Truesdale, surgeon of this division of the road. Hit INJCIiKD. Engineer Heady of lue passenger triin seemed to have sustained the most seri ous injuries. He had vimped from the cab when he found collUiou inevitable and fell with tumble force upon the hard ground, fracturing his skull in two places ami causing in one place over the right tjean incision to the brain. His face was one m iss o bruises, cuts and scars, his neck was badly bruised as were his shoulders and body generally. His fire man, Dempssy. received several bruises but nothing of a serious nature. Engineer Scott and fireman Cummings of the freight engine were only slightly bruised. Con ductor Kand was in the baggage car when the trains collided, and was thrown for ward at'ainst a door, receiving a painful bump on the lop of bis head. Chas. F. Allen, rear brake-man ou the freight train, was thrown upon his face, receiving a wound in the right side of bis face. One of the most I'KCri.IAR UKSCl.TS occurred in Ihe baggage car. Mr. J. J. Bartholomew, a commercial traveler of Philadelphia, bound from Clinton to Rock Island, and Mr. Chas. Meyer, of Chicago, cb route from Savanna to Rock IslaDd, were talking in Ihe rear of the smoker. Mr Meyer was sitting upon the coal box and Mr. Bartholomew was standing. . Mr Meyer was thrown hack over the box, wrenching his back and rupturing himself. When be recovered j he discovered Mr. Bartholomew lying flat on his face in the baggage department of the car. He went to him and foun J him unconscious ar.d bis face covered with blood which was oozing from gashes on the forehead. There were a few other passengers on the train, but none were hurt. The train with the disabled ere in charge of Enaineer James Wixnn was soon on its way back to Rock Island, and upon its arrival here, Mr. Heady was taken to Mrs. Phillip's boarding bouse on Second avenue and Sixteenth street, Mr. Bartholomew to the Harper house and Messrs. Allen and Meyers to the Commercial house. Dr. Truesdale was then enabled to make a more thor ough examination as to r.NOINKER HEADY H CONDITION. The scalp was torn and hung down over the eye -brows and the doctor found it necessary lo remove a small quantity of broken bones before the wounds could be dressed. Dr. Truesdale gives it as his opinion that Heady may recover, though ihe chances are against him. Mr. Bartholomew was interviewed at the Harper house and said: "I knew nothing from Ihe time I was talking in tbe smoker until I recovered from mv swoon in the baggage department. It was the most peculiar sensation I ever experienced. I did not even know what struck me." Mr. Bartholomew has some ugly cuts about the forehead and lips, and his clothes were badly torn, bat he will be about in a short time again. Heady seems lo have been the only man who suffered internal injuries. CONDITION OF THE WHECK. The scene of the wreck was visited by un Aroi's reporter this morning. The locomotives were badly demoralized. They bad not left the track neither had the cars, but the boilers and wheels seemed all that was left of tbe engines. A wrecking train left Beardstown at 12:4,i this morning in charge of Train master Stanton, and arrived at the wreck at 4 a. ni., and is now engaged in clearing the track. Conductor Sullivan's St. Louis train, as the robbers hurried out and disap and all other trains over the C, B. & Q peared. The men were well dressed, and this morning, ran over tbe C, B. I & P. ; appeared orderly. The stolen property track from Port Byron Junction to Mo-' amounts to about $300, and the police line. All trains arc running on regular j at Davenport arc at a loss to know time again. whom to suspect. I THE BLAME for the accident seems to rest on the freight crew, as that train should bave waited at Moline for the passenger to pass. Engineer Scott claims be was act ing under orders from Conductor McKen zie. The engineer and conductor are equally reeoonsible for the running of tiains, but a railroad man said this morns ing that Scott would start when the con ductor told him if he had lost one of bis drivers. He is one of the oldest engi neers on the road, and has always been regarded as a faithful and reliable man. He has lately had a bereavement in his family and this was bis first trip since. It is thought that brooding over this was one cause of his carelessness. McKeczie, the freight conductor, though a former employe on the Burlington, has just re turned to its employ, after being on the Texas A St. Louis road for some time. His carelessness and thoughtlessness are said by railroad men to be inexplainable. Engineer Heady, the injured man, who is in no way resiionsible for the accident, as the passenger train had the right of way has been on Ihe C , B. & Q. for years. He formerly ran between this city and Beardstown as passenger engineer, but since tbe opening of the new road, his run has been from here to Savanna. Trainmaster Stanton will probably sus pend the freight crew until Superintend ent Brown's return from the east, when the matter will be investigated. Kay from the Hraillichl. Engineer Allen Him ltoo, of engine 58 on tbe east division of the C, R, I. & P.. will lake bis locomotive out of the shops this week, where she has had a two weeks' over-hauling, and put her service again. In explanation of his refusal to accede to the proposition to have percentages for the Northwestern Passenger associa tion tiled by arbitration. President Cable says that while the C, R. I. fc P. is or dinarily in favor of tbe principle of arbitration in cases where an agreement by the roads could not be reached, they could not in this case submit to arbitra tion without seriously injuring the inter ests of the company. There was no good reason why the old lines should not fix their percentages upon the average of the business done during the three vears previous as agreed upon by the roads in the Southwestern Railway association The proposition was made bv some of the roads that the arbitrator should fix percentages without taking into conside ration previous statistics. Such action would have left the C ,R. I. & P. entirely out in the cold, and it would not have secured as much as some of the new lines It had been previously agreed that the business from local points in Iowa should not go into the dooI, nor the business from Milwaukee, but that local points south of the Illinois state line he included in the jiool. This would have forced the C, R. I. P. to' put all its important local points between Chicago and Rock Island without getting any consideration therefrom, while the other lines would have had nothing to account for except their through business between Chicago and St. Paul and Miu neapolis. W nr A sirhnrUlrr. Tne above is the firm nam: of the Central shoe store. A partnership form ed December 8, 1886. by which Mr. Geo, Schneider, Jr., becomes an equal pa-tner with Mr. G.

This shoe store is one of the best known and most reliable of anv in the three cities, and has grown from a small beginning in a few years to a first place among our merchants establishments. through the perscveriug efforts of its genial proprietor Mr. G- L Wynes.

A Good Inveaiment Anv one who has ever dealt iu lands, knows that no investment of money will so surely and quickly yield a return, as such a venture if carefully made. To the absolute safely or a governmeut bond, is added a profit far in excess of rate of interest which cau be obtained on any safe loan. In Kansas and Neb raska especially lands are raising iu value very rapidly ami wilb. a ttendy growth which gives assurance of stability. The good season and the great tide of immi. gration into these stales has made invest ment there doubly safe and desirable. The climate of Southern Nebraska aud of Kansas, free as it. is from the long ngourous cold winter, added to a soil unsurpassed tor richness and productive capacity, has made possible the wonderful development of these states. To the far mer they hold out special inducements. Cheap land, easy term of purchase, good markets and varied products enable him to own his farm at a smaller cost and with less labor than is required to pay rent for the land he occupies here, or the interest on the money be has invested in it. If you arc looking for a safe place to invest money, where it will pay you a large and sure profit, or if you are a farm er and want a farm of your own, call on me and see what 1 have lo offir.
