Without Loss of Life hut 'I'm Ins
Arc Considerably Smashed.
A collision that might have been far
more disastrous occurred at Asliby, n sta
tion eight miles west of Hyannis, about 5
o'clock last Saturday morning when tho
passenger trains, No. 43. westbound, and
No. 42, castbound, crashed into cschother.
The cause of the trouble is said to be the
misunderstanding or misreadiug of the or
der given providing for the meeting of the
trains. No. 43 was in charge of Conductor
Andrews, engineer and fireman being
Messrs. Morrison and Johnson, No. 42
was in charge of Conductor Wright, with
Engineer Phillips and Fireman Tillctt. At
the meeting place the road curves, so that
trains approaching cachother can not sec
far enough ahead to stop in time to avert a
catastrophe. All the enginemen in this
case, thinking nothing could be done to
prevent the collision, jumpcd.exc'ept Engi
neer Morrison who stayed with his engine,
reversed her and succeeded in getting his
train in motion backward, but even then
the engines struck with such force that
they were thrown upward at an - angle of
about forty-five degrees. It is said that
but for his action far greater damages to
trains, crews and passengers would have
resulted. The tenders, baggage and mail
cars were pretty badly damaged. Mr.
Phillips was the only one o the trainmen
that received an injury worth mentioning,
he having some severe bruises on his head.
None of the passengers were injured in
the least, but two tramps who were riding
in the door of one of the baggage cars
were hurt, one of them getting his leg so
I badly crushed that it had to bo amputated,
while the other had a foot crushed consid
erably and his toes cut off. The trains
were delayed five or six hours in conse
quence of the wreck.
