A REAR-END COLLISION
Two Endeavor Sections
Wrecked Near Chicago.
THREE KILLED AND MANY INJURED
All the Injured Persons Are Resident
of Wisconsin-- Cause of the
Chicago, June 30. Three persons
were killed cntright and about twenty
others injured in a rear-end collision on
the Chicago & Northwestern road at
1 :45 this morning, thirty miles out of
Chicago. The dead are :
Mrs. B. Shipman, of Appleton, Wis.
Mrs. John Gooding.
An unknown tramp.
The injured were all residents of Wis
consin. The colliding trains were sections No.
4 and 5 of the Christian Endeavorers'
special, sent out in nine sections. Sec
tion 5 ran into section 4, which left Chi
cago fifteen minates ahead of it. Sec
tion 4 carried Wisconsin delegates, nearly
500 strong, and in the rear sleeper were
people from Fond du Lac, Green Bay,
Appletown and other Wisconsin cities.
The section had come to a stop juet out
of West Chicago, where the Freeport
line diverges from the main lfne. Sec
tion 5 came up behind - at great speed
and the shock of the collision was terri
ble. Passengers in the two rear sleep
ers of section 4 were in their berths and
most of them were asleep. They re
ceived no warning, and those not killed
outright awoke to find themselves
jammed in the wreckage.
Passengers on both trains began the
work of rescue. One of the first of the
injured taken out was Engineer Charles
Courtney, of section No. 5. He had
stuck to his post and was seriously in
jured Men and women could be seen strug
gling to extricate themselves from the
wreckage. Others pinned down by
some crushing weight were crying for
help. Here and there was an arm or
leg protruding from the debris.
A pathetic scene was the rescue of two
daughters of Mrs. Shipman, of Apple
ton. They were unable to extricate
themselves, and although hurt, refused
assistance, begging that their mother bo
helped. Mrs. Shipman was found
crushed under part of a roof and life was
extinct when she was taken out.
Mrs. John Gooding was probably- in
stantly killed. The force of the collision
crushed together the partitions of her
berth and she had no possible chance to
The Chicago & Northwestern officials
did everything in their power to relieve
the sufferers. Two hotels in West Chi'
cago were turned into hospitals, and
able physicians were promptly in attend
Owing to the crush caused by the
Christian Endeavor business all ached
ules were abandoned and the trains sent
out as fast as filled. Nine sections left
left the Northwestern depot at intervals
of 15 minutes, begining at 10 :30, to say
nothing of trains ' sent earlier in the
evening. . Assistant General Superin
tendent W. A. Gardener said this morn
ing he could not give a tangible reason
for the accident.
John Gooding, a Nnada Man.

killed in the West Chicago wreck, is

A COLUMBIA KIVEK TRAGEDY.
This Was the Record Yesterday, at
Chicago June 30. The excessive heat
yesterday caused six deaths in this city,
while a number of persons were pros
trated. The strong wind tempered the
sun's rays to a great extent, and many
who felt the effect of temperature sought
a shaded spot and were resuscitated by
the cool breezes that blew steadily from
the southwest. Five persons seeking re
lief from the heat went bathing, and the
excessive temperature of their todies in
duced cramps and all were drowned.
The dead are :
J. C. Bockour, drowned while swim

A Fisherman Fatally Shot by His Boat
puller, Near Astoria.
Astoria, June 30. A terrible shoot
ing affray occurred Monday night be
tween 8 and 9 o'clock, in a fishing-boat,
aa the result of which Louis Spina is now
lying at the point of death at St. Mary's
Spina and Antone Tonich operate El
more's boat No. 83. They were in the
city yesterday, and did considerable
drinking. When they left out for the
night's dritt. Spina, the captain, wept to
sleep. He did not wake until the boat
arrived at the place where they were to
cast their net.
After laying the net Tonich wanted to
lie down and sleep, but Spina objected.
A quarrel followed. Spina drew a knife
and started for his boat puller, but the
latter picked up a Winchester rifle, and,
warning the captain not to come at him,
pulled the trigger. The ball struck Spina
in the left groin, lacerating the intestines
in a frightful manner. The injured man
fell into the river and was rescued by the
boatpuller, who hastened with all possi
ble speed to this city and reported the
matter to the sheriff.
The fishing-boat did not arrive here
until 10 o'clock this morning, and the
delay had much to do with the serious
ness of Spina's condition.' The shooting
occurred off the bell buoy, at the mouth
of the river.
Spina made a statement of the cause
of the shooting and exonerated Tonich
from blame in the matter. He said he
was wrong in objecting to the boatpuller
taking a rest, and that he attacked him.
When he started for him, Spina says he
was warned, but would pay no attention
to the boatpuller. . He also said the
Bhooting was accidental, but it is likely
he wished to shield his partner.
Tonich was lodged in jail pending fur
ther investigation into the case.
Spina cannot possibly live. Internal
hemorrhage has set in, and death is
momentarily expected. Owing to the
man's injuries, fully four feet of intes
tines had to be removed.
The men had fished together for the
last four years.
