Michigan Excursion Train Hit Freight
at High Speed.
Falem, Mich., July 22. Thirty-one
people are dead and more than 70 in
jured, many of them seriously, as the
result of a head-on collison Saturday be
tween this village snd Plymouth, when
a Pere Marquette excursion train bound
from Ionia to Detroit crashed into a
westbound freight train in a cut located
at a harp curve of the Pere Marquette
railroad about a mile east 01 naiem.
The passenger train of eleven cars,
carrying the Pere Marquette shop em
ployes of Ionia and their families to
the Michigan metrojioli for their an
nual excursion, was running at high
speed, probably 50 mile an hour, down
a tep grade. It struck the lighter
locomotive of the freight train with
such terrible force as to turn the freight
engine completely around.
Only a few of the freight train's car
weie smashed, and it tock only a few
houis' work to remove all traces of
thera from the scene. But behind the
two wrecked locomotives six cars of the
passenger train lay piled in a hopeless
Four of the passenger coaches re
mained on the track but slightly dam
aged, and were used to convey the dead
and injured to Ionia; one coach was
entirely undamaged, with only its for
ward trucks otl tne rails, ineiwo
coiche next ahead of this were tele
scoped. The next car forward tood al
most on end aru-r tne wreca.
UesDonsibllity is put square upon
the crew of the freight train by officials
of the road. Those who arrived at the
scene of the wreck soon after the acci
dent secured from the crew of the
freight the orders under which It was
running, and which clearly showed the
position of the passenger train, ana
that the freight bad encroached upon
the other train's running time. The
collision occurred at 9:13 o'clock, and
the freight tiain should have reached
8alem at 9:10 to be within their orders.

WORST OF CRIMINALS.
San Pedro Officers Say Disaster
Could Have Been Averted.
HUNDRED SEVENTY-SEVEN SAVED
Svnty-Two Ar Unaccounted
and Chances of Being Found
Ahv Ar Small.
Eureka, Cal., July 23. Arrival ye
teiday of the steamer George W. Elder
with the battered steam schooner Kan
Pedio in tow, brought the first new of
marine disaster which will rank
among the worst of the Pacific coast.
The fan Ptdro irv full speed into
the stem of ttie steamer Columbia,
bound from San Francisco to Portland,
tearing a great gash In her side, and
causing her to sink within eight min
ute near Shelter cove about 12 30
o'clock Sunday morning.
The first reports justified the belief
that at lenst half of the 250 persons on
board the Columbia had perished, but
hourly the total shrink. . The best ad
vices now are that 177 escaped death
when the vessel went to the bottom.
One hundred and (even of the Colum
bia' passengers and 37 of her crew
have lieen brought to thi port by the
steamer (ieo. W. Elder, which towed
the colliding schooner 8an Pedro from
the scene of the disaster to Eureka. A
late message irom Shelter cove say
that three more lifeboats have been
picked up, one of them containing 18
persons, another 15 and the third not
Two hours after the wreck the fog
lifted snd a cold wind commenced to
blow. The people in the boats suffered
O. Swanson, a sailor of the San Ped
ro, wa at the wheel Saturday night
when the fatal collision occurred. In
his report to the sailois' agent, John
Ertckson, the blame is laid upon the
shoulders of the Columbia's officers.
Other member of the crew of the San
Pedro substantiate the story of Swan-
son. He say that the crder was given
to him when the lookout sighted the
Columbia to put the wheel hard aport.
Three polnU a port carried the San
Pedro seaward apparently out of the
way of the approaching vessel, whose
name at that time wa not known.
Short toots from the whistles of both
vessels warned the skippers. The Co
lumbia wa on the ccast side, the San
Pedro on the sea side. Annarentlv
both vessel were proceeding at full
speed. If all had gone well, the San
Pedro would have cleared the Colum
bia, but it ia evident that an order,
put the wheel hard a-etarboard," was
given on the Columbia. This sent her
directly across the bow of the steam
schooner. Whether or not the speed of
either veisel was slackened i imma
terial, for the crash of the ves-selg was
terrific. The Columbia, an iron vessel,
bore the brunt of the impact, and her
iron plates crncked,-and a gash seven
feet across the forward .hatch allowed
the water free ingress at great velocity.
Among the survivor rescued and car
ried north to this port by the George
W. Elder are men and women from a
score of slates, not a lew irom tne At
lantic seaboard and the Middle West.
Among these are a number of school
teacher, who were varying with a sea
voyage their home trip from the an
nual convention of the National Fducft
tional association at Los Angeles.
A segregation of the Columbia's pas
senger list, shows that in her cabin she
carried 78 men and 90 women and
girls; in her steerage 20 men and one
woman, a total of 181). Discrepancies,
however, between the full list furnished
the purser on sailing and some of the
names given by the survivors who have
reached here indicate that the total
number of passengers may have been
greater. Sixteen of the names given
here are not found on the steamship
company's certified list. Adding to the
189 accredited passengeis the 69 or 60
members of the Columbia's crew gives
a total of 249 lives jeonardiied in the
midnight collision. It is known that
at least 40 women were saved.
