Nickel-Plate Passenger Train
Crashes Into a Freight
TWELVE KILLED OUTRIGHT
Twenty-Five Others, of Whom Eight
Will Die, Are Injured as the
Result of the-31lscalcula-'
tion of an Engineer.
CLEVELAND, O.. Aug. 13. A fast
east-bound passenger train on the
Nlckol Plato Road collided with a west
bound freight train early today at
Kiskman. O., near Vermilion, rosultinc
in the death of 12 persons, while at
least 25 others were injured, eight of
"whom will probably die.
The wreck, according to the officials
of the company, was caused by a mis
understanding of orders or neglect to
obey them on the part of the crew of
the freight train. The dead:
CHARLES W. POOLE, enclneer of passen
ger train. Conncaut, O.
JOSEPH ALEXANDER, Newark, X J.
FRANK WEAVER, Findlay. O.
Nln Italian laborers.
The injured Include the following:
John W. Long, Cleveland; Rlohard A.
Xong. -son of J. W. Long; Mrs. John TV.
Xong; Louis Rhelnbold, Basooma, O.; E. E.
O'Hara. Findlay, O.; B. L. Kerr. Grafton. O.;
John W. Murphy. West Haven, Conn.; Phil
lip Basklm, Tlln. O.; Floyd Trumer. Ada,
O.; John Dedtout, Tiffin, O.: Frank Phil
lips. Findlay. O.
Aside from the engineer, the men
killed on the passenger train w.ere all
riding in tho smoking-car and were
mostly foreign laborers in the employ
of the Standard OH Company, on tllr
way from Fort Seneea, O., to Brook
Held, O., In charge of a foreman.
Killed as lie Reaches for Brake.
Engineer a C. Poole, of the passen
ger train, was killed while trying to
reach for the airbrake. His fireman
saved himself by jumping. Tho high
speed of the passenger train threw Ita
locomotive and 11 rat three coaches over
on the engine of the freight train, tele
scoping the smoker and the car fol
lowing. Several cars of the freight
train were splintered to fragmcntM.
Of the passengers in the smoker,
none escaped injury. Fortunately, them
was no lire, but the heavy timbers of
the wrecked cars pinned down many
and prevented them from getting los
until assistance arrived. Doctors were
sent on a special train to the scene
from Lorainc. The Injured were hur
ried to JLoraine and placed in the hos
pital. The dead were conveyed to
the morgue at Loralne;-
Passengers Thrown Through Itoof.
When the trains came together al
most everybody in the smoker was
dozing.- The sudden Jar hurled them
out of their seats into the aisle and
threw sevoral persons through tho
roof and sides of the car, which seem
ed all at once to crush In like a paper
bag, pinning down the passengers.
The passengers in the second car
were more fortunate. There the vio
lence of the Impact was not so severe,
though few got oft without cuts,
bruises, sprains or broken bones. No
passengers in the sleepers were in
jured. The men on' the train who escaped
injury worked hard to rescue the vic
tims and were aided by residents fromj
the vicinity of the wreck. Some of
the injured were placed in tho sleeping-cars,
while others were removed
to houses near the siding. j
Freight Disobeys Orders.
President Canlff, of the Nickel Plate,
today stated that from the Informa
tion in the hands of the officials, the
freight crew had orders to go on the
elding at Kiskman and there await the
passage of the passenger train, wriy"
this was not done In time to permit the
passenger train to go by or a flagman
sent out, has not yet been learned. A
rigid Investigation is being made by
the railroad officials.
It Is said that the watch of the en- I
glneer of tho freight train was slow I
and that the engineer believed he had
eight minutes to get his train on tho
biding before the passenger train was
due.. The freight train had slackened j
speed and was about to back in on the j
Elding from the main track when the i
passenger train came tearing along at
a rate of 45 miles an hour and dashed
Into it. !
WRECK OX THE SANTA FE
Fireman and Yardman Killed by
KINGSL.EY, Kan., Aug. 13. The sec
ond section of westbound Santa Fe pas
senger train No. 9 crashed into the rear
end of a freight train at Leads, eight
miles east of Kinsley, early today. The
way car and two freight cars were de
molished and the engine and baggage car
of the passenger train were wrecked.
Henry Swartz, of Newton, Kan., fireman
of the passenger train, and a yardman
named Steegle, were killed, and Engineer
Ramsey, of the passenger, was seriously
injured. The passengers were shaken up,
but nono was seriously hurt.
The train was an excursion carrying
members of the Order of Eagles on the
way tp Denver.
TOOK DQSE0F MORPHINE
Ogden Saloonkeeper Feared Prose
cution by Postal Authorities.
OGDEN, Utah, Aug. 13. D. K. Farley,
a saloonkeeper, despondent over his
threatened prosecution for fraudulently
using the mails, died this morning as the
result of a big dose of morphine taken
the night before. Farley took the poison
at his saloon and then went home. He
was taken 111 and told his wife of his
deed. A doctor was sent for, and a long
but vain fight made for Farley's life.
Farley was arrested a month ago for
alleged complicity in a get-rlch-qulck
Tho Irish have never taken kindly
to sea fishing, although It would prove
a source of wealth close at hand.
Some years ago there lived in Boston a lawyer noted for sloth In movement
and moderation in speech. Many readers from the old "Bay State" will remem
ber Cephas Brigham as a character they laiew before crossing the continent to
come to Oregon. Mrs. Brigham awoke one night and called her husband, saying
she thought there were burglars in the house. He got out of bed and dressed him
self, even to collar and necktie, and turning to his wife, said: "Mrs. Brigham
in which direction do you suppose the burglars are?"
Of course the burglars are gone, it don't matter where. "We only tell the inci
dent to illustrate the importance of avoiding delay in important matters. Be sure
you don't delay today in getting to the store early to share in the bargains. If you
can't come early come later. If you can't come today come tomorrow. But
some of the values advertised here may be gone if you delay too long in coming.
Yon know this is the "clean-up" season, and many lots are small.
