Fast Passenger Train Crashes
Into Standing Freight.
TWENTY PERSONS LOSE LIVES
Dead Nearly All In One Car Blinding
Snow Storm Prevented En
gineer Seeing Ahead.
Huttc, Mont, Sept. 26. In the
worst wreck in the history of the
Northern Pacific Railroad, 20 persons
were killed, 10 seriously injured, sev
eral fatally and about 30 more or less
injured in a collision between passen
ger train No. 10, known as the east
bound Burlington flyer, and a west
bound freight train, at 8:10 o'clock
yesterday morning, at a siding known
as Youngs Point, about thirty miles
west of Billings. The fast traveling
passenger train crashed into the
freight just entering on the siding dur
ing a blinding snow storm, the en
gineer of the passenger failing to see
the signal flag of the brakeman of the
freight train in time to avert the
A heavy, wet snow which was fall
ing at the time prevented the wreck
from catching fire, and undoubtedly
held the death list down to the figures
given. Every effort is being made by
the. division forces, aided by volun
teers from Livingston and Billings, to
clear the wreck, and so far they are
able to prevent further loss of life.
None of the passengers from the
sleeping cars was injured. The train
was made up of an engine, baggage
car. smoker, a day coach and two
The efforts to prevent fire were suc
cessful and that horror was saved the
wrecked passengers. On the arrival
of the relief train the injured were
transferred around the wreck and
taken to Billings.
The express car was raised over the
platform of the smoker, and swept
superstructure, seats and passengers
off. Not a passenger in this car es
caped death or injury. The other pas
sengers escaped with cuts and bruises.
The scenes around the smoker were
beyond description, heads, bodies, legs
and arms being interwoven with
broken seats and equipment. In one
place five bodies were packed on top
of each other In another seven had
to be pulled apart It was almost im
possible to succor the injured without
trampling on the dead.
Railroad men, while refusing to be
quoted officially or allowing their
names to be used because of the reg
ulations of the road in connection
with publicity as to wrecks, intimate
that the freight train was stealing
time, that it had no orders to proceed
to Youngs Point and should have
waited at Park City, about six miles
from the scene of the wreck, for the
passenger train. This is supposed to
explain why the Burlington train was
traveling about So miles an hour past

Hope to Save Stranded Cruiser
Newport. R. I . Sept. 2ff The work
of extricating the United States
cruiser Yankee from her position on
Spindle Rock, where she struck dur

a wooden coffer-dam about tlie ves

TWO MEN BURNED.
Fatiltles Follow Forest Fires Near
Eureka, Cal, Sept. 2S A strong
wind fanned forest fires to the north
of this city that wiped out the town
of Luffcnholtz from the map last
night, and that were again raging
with added force, and the greatest
destruction during the progress of
the fire was recorded during the day
The plant of the Little River Red
wood Lumber company is burning,
and all that protects the town of
Eicldbrook is 100 yards of green tim
ber, which may ward off the flames,
although the residents arc preparing
to flee with their household goods.
The fire devastated a stretch of
timber oxer 30 miles long and from
four to five miles wide, burning
houses, mostly squatter settlements,
thousands ot cords of wood and many
thousands of acres of timber land
The plant of the Little River Red
wood Lumber company, now reported
burning, is valued at $1,000,000, ex
clusive of timber, of which there is
several thousand acres.
Two deaths have been recorded. A
body found, at first thought 'to be
that of A. Carlson, has now been
identified as that of Frank White
more, while another charred corpse
found at Trinidad has not been iden
tified Fire is now going inland up Little
River at a furious pace. At noon the
wind was blowing the flames through
sparse timber that wasouce logged
off or denuded of its big trees, but
so fast are they traveling that there
is no doubt they will again get into
thick timber at the head of Little
river, when the damage will be hard
to estimate. If fire once gets into
this timber, there will be no stopping
it until it reaches the Trinity county
line, unless the wind changes or a
heavy rain falls.
ROCKEFELLER AS AUTHOR.
Oil King Makes Denial of Accusations
New York. Sept. 23 John D
Rockefeller appears for the first time
in the role of an author in a scries of
articles on "Some Random Reminis
cences of Men and Events," the first
of which will appear on Friday in
the Ocober issue of "The Worlds
Mr Rockefeller gives as a reason
for speaking now that "if a tenth of
the things that have been said are
true, then dozens of able and faithful
men who have been associated with
me, many of whom have passed away,
must have been guilty of grave faults
For myself, I had decided to say
nothing, hoping that after my death
the truth would gradually come to
the surface anil posterity would do
strict justice; but while I live and
can testify to certain things, it seems
fair that 1 should refer to some points
which I hope will help to set forth
several much discussed happenings in
a new liit I am convinced that
they have not been fully understood
"It has been said that I forced the
men who became my partners in the
oil business to join with me. I .would
not have been so short-sighted If it
were true that I followed such tactics.
I ak, would it have been notsible to
make ot such men life-long com
panions?" Mr. Rockefeller speaks of the de
velopment of the Standard Oil com
pany and says that the plan of selling
direct to the consumer and the ex
ceptionally rapid growth of the busi
ness "bred a certain antagonism

No: that would have Item most scl
