Madrid, By Cable.?Fourteen bodies and 50 injured persons have been extricated from the wrecks of the Bilboa train, which overturned at Nejerilla river Saturday night. According to official information. 30 persons were killed and 69 others seriously injured. Many of the injured will die. Of the three hundred passengers on the train it is stated that only six escapted unhurt. The train, which was composed of two engine and sixteen coaches was crossing the bridge when the couplings between the engines broke. The second cngin left the track and fell, followed by the entire train into the bed of the river. Fortunately the water was low. The nearest medical attendance was a mile and a half distant Those passengers who were least injured aided the others and did all possible until the arrival of reliof trains bringing nurses, doctors and soldiers from Bilboa. The train fell 50 feet from the bridge to the river bed. the coaches piling up in a mas3 of splintered wood and iron work. The scene is described as horrifying. Many corpses were carried down the stream, which was actually reddened with blood. It was found impossible to extricate numbers of the injured who were pinioned under the wreckage. A railway guard was arrested in the act of robbing the dead and narrowly escaped lynching. It is believed that tht official figures undo.estimate the number of the killed. some accounts giving the number of dead as 100. The full extent of the catastrcphe will be known only when the wreckage has been cleaicd away. The latest dispatches from Saragassa, near which place the catastrophe occurred, give the number of dead as 90 and the injuiod as 100. The rescue of the injured from the debris is not vet completed.

LYNCHING OF THREE . , A Very Deplorable Matter Occurs in a Georgia Town TRAGIC EVENT WAS UNEXPECTED ] O ( Three Negroes Lynched For a Killing ' - - - i wneretne condition 01 mo i ordered Man's Family Was Considered By the /lob. Macon, Ga.. Special.?An Albany dispatch to the Telegraph says: ' "Baker County was the 3cene of a tripple lynching about 2 o'clock Friday morning when a mob of 50 determined men entered the town, of Newton and secured possession of Garfield McCoy, Wiley Anette 1 and George McKinney, Miller County negroes who had been arrested and lodged in jail for the murder last Saturday night of F. S. Bullard, prominent white farmer of the seventh dis- ' trict of Baker County. The manner in which the prisoners were obtained is unique and altogether without pre cedent. Jailer Wm. Screws who resides in the jail, was awakened about ; 12 o'clock by Bailiff R. C. Tucker, who stated that he had a prisoner to place in the lock-up. The jailer hastily donned his clothes and proceeded to i the jail. As isoon as he had unlocked the prison door he was j suddenly surrounded by a swarm of men with drav/n revolvers, who de- i manded that he unlock the cell in < which the negroes were lodged. He i did as commanded under protest, and the three negroes were dragged from 1 the jail, the prisoner of Tucker ir.ak- i fng his escape during the excitement. Their appeals for mercy was lost on i the mob. who began beating and 1 'lapping then^ as soon as they had i left the jail door. < "The mob lost no time in leaving 1 Newton with the negroes and when 1 a mile from town the three men were i halted, nooses tied around their necks < and, amid the shouts of the men, were t strung up. The mob fired several < hundred shots into the swaying bod- 1 ies after which they quietly dispersed. "The crime for which the nogroe3 1 were lynched occurred on the planta- 1 tion of Bullard last Saturday night 1 during the progress of a dance given 1 by one of Bullard's tenants. Negroes t from Early, Miller and Decatur coun- c ties were present, and trouble was ? started by McKinney and the others i putting out the lights. Just at this 1 juncture Bullard appeared on the t scene and commanded order. His in- 1 wriereuue was icscmeu uy uie mree ' negroes who opened fire on him with '< revolvers. Bullard fell mortally 1 wounded and died on Tuesday. 1 "The negroes were arrested Tuesday and lodged in jail at Newton. At 1 their commitment trial it was proven < that the shot that killed Bullard was < fired by McKinney, and that Anette rand McCoy also fired at him. The ne- t groes were remanded to jail to await 1 trial at the next session of Baker Su- 1 perior Court, and absolutely no talk * of lynching was indulged in by citizens. It is the consensus of opinion that the work of the mob was largely due to the fact that Bullard's family is r left in a sad condition, his wife being . a hopeless invalid and several small r children are dependent. The lynch- t ing was a great surprise to the people c of the county, as It was generally be- ^ lieved that the law would be allowed . to take its course in their cases. The lynching is generally deplored." ? Railroad Agent Shot r Goldsboro, N. C., Special.?A shoot- I ing occurred at Dudley station Friday I nine miles south of Goldsboro. C.

The only ^ difference in the present scale is that iron at 512 is made the basis instead of ^ 511.

Stewart, of Raleigh, and Fireman Walter Barnes, of Concord, and Charlie Brewer, of Aberdeen, were killed. Fireman J. F. Wright, of Raleigh, was seriously Injured by jumping. From the best information at hand it appears that a flying engine left Vass, a small station about three miles north, without orders, g^ing south, and attempted to make the siding at Manly, a half-way station between Southern Pines and Niagara. Local freight train No. 6, north-bound, left Southern Pines on time and was running on regular orders under full headway down gTade and was run into by the flying engine, going at the rate of 45 miles an hour. It was a head-on collision, on a sharp curve, and in a deep cat. Both boilers exploded and the scene was beyond description. Engineer Wall was killed on train No. G. His fireman, J. F. Wright, escaped by jumping, though he is Beriously injured. Engineer S. D. Stewart and his fireman, Walter Barnes, on the shifting engine, were both killed, as was also Charlie Brewer, of Aberdeen, who, it is said, was making the trip up on No. 6 to accept a position of fireman on the road. Drs. Edwin Gladmon, K. M. Fergu Bon and A. H. McLeod were quickly on hand and relieved the injured man and looked after the dead bodies, which were taken to Niagara station, from which point they will be carried to Raleigh. Fireman Bames had a piece of 2x4 scantling driven through his body, which had to be sawed off at the back and front before the body could be iressed, while Engineer Wall was entirely disemboweled. His leg was broken and bis head smashed. Engineer Brewer was found with his face -irectly in front cf the big fire-box of the engine on No. 6. his hands burned iff and his flesh cooked In steam and burning coals. The track was terribly blocked and :9m up and parts of tlw engines were Found several hundred yards away, while the tender of the flying engine backed away about two miles after :he collision.

BOMB IS EXPLODED Richmond Street Car Strike Reaches yft Danger Stage WAR-LIKE TIMES IN VIRGINIA CITY Sheriff of Henrico County Refuses to Ask For Troops?Alilitary People Quard Cars. Richmond, Special?Street cars have been run on all lines under military protection. The cars have been manned by strike-breakers. Two militiamen, with bayonets fixed, stood guard on the front and two on the rear platforms of each car. The power house and supply depots within the city have also been guarded by militia and a military guard has been on duty at the State arsenal, while sentinels have been posted at car line crossings. Notwithstanding these precautions the first car of the Ciay street line to leave the East End Wednesday morning was attacked and obstructed by a mob, and Captain Skippwith, with" one of the Richmond companies, was wounded in the leg by a fragment of bomb exploded on the track. The car made its way into the more central part of the city without further casualties. The West End car barns are in Henrico county, outside the city limits, ^ and the sheriff of the county refuses^*--to ask for the aid of troop3. The barns are guarded by armed men in the em ploy of the company and details from the guard protect the cars between the barns end the city line. There is much strike sympathy in both the East and West Ends, and the greatest danger points in the present difficulty are there, the barns being centres around which disturbers gather.

Six n.-n Injured Richmond, Special.?Six men were wounded, two of them seriously, bystreet railway company guards, who fired into a crowd of strike sympathizers at Main and Lombardy streets, just outside the city limits. A car guarded by employes of the company, armed with shot-guns, was standing at that point. There had been a big crowd there all the evening. The company claims that the guards were first fired on. At any rate, they fired into the crowd and a brisk fusilade followed. At least six persons were struck, and two of them seriously hurt, being peppered in the back with buckshot. While this was taking place in the West End, exciting scenes were enacted in the East End, where efforts were made to operat? cars under the protection of the military. All sorts of missiles were hurled at the cars and obstructions placed on the track. Finally the cars under the pilotage of a detachment of the Howitbers, with a Catling gun, were taken to the barns. All cars were withdrawn from the streets at 9:45 p. m. for the night. Five companies of the Seventy-First ^ Regiment, of Norfolk and Newport ^ News, are en route ror ine ciiy iu itenforce the troops already here, and ere expected to arrive in the early morning hours. The mayor has Issued an address asking women and children to keep off the streets tomorrow.
