Atlantic In Indiana- A REAR EN 9 COLLICION. A Freight Dashes at FultSpoed Into a Passenger Train- MANY BURNED TO DEATH. Flro Breaks Out and Adds to the General Terror. Almosta Second Chatswrth. Chicago, Oct. 11. A terrible accident occurred on the Chicago & Atlantic rail road bust night at Koata, a small station about fifty-five miles cast of Chicago. Passenger train No. 12, which left here at 7:45 p. m., stopped just this side of Kouts at 9:43 to make some repairs. The fast freight train No. 48, which should follow on instructions, received a clear bill at Boone Qrove, six miles wet of Kouts, and had got up a good speed when it crashed into the rear of the halt ed passenger train. The night was dark and the scene during the next half hour was dreadful. The rear coaches of the passenger train were smashed and telescoped so that the threo occupied less space than on-. No one in the Pulln ' sleepers was injured. The conductor telegranhf-l t" lm company hTQ that all escaped Uv;:-c i- ' ' car and none were injured in the collision. General Manager Broughton, with all the clerks and others who could be of any use at the scene, left as soon as he heard of the accident this morning. Upon the arrival of the wrecked train at the water tank, the scene of the acci dent, the engineer discovered a portion of the engine ut of gear and a stop was made to fix it. A signal is said to have been sent back to stop the next train should it come along while the passenger was still at the water tank, but for some reason this signal was ignored, if sent, and thejineat express, which runs at a high rate of speed, crashed into the train. The entire passenger train, consisting of five cars, was completely wrecked. Amid a pandemonium of crashing timbers and human shrieks and toppling fragments of the wreck the horror was tripled when the confused mass of splintered and broken wood was discovered to be on fire. Those who miraculously escaped uninjured immediately turned their at tention tothose imprisoned in the .wreck, and all but about twenty, it ia now thought, -were rescued. A PASSENGER'S nARRORINO NARRATIVE. One gentleman, a passuger from Taun ton, Mass., wb was on his way home, was sitting in the first car- asleep, with his hand on his satchel. "Tlfe first I knew," said he, "I heard a frightful crash and the car seemed shattered and the pieces were flying past me. The next I knew I found myself almost buried in the ruins and they seemed to keep piling up. I tried to extricate myself and found I was near a window. It was very dark and all arouud me wore yells and groans and the blackness" made it fearful. I didn't seem to - be hurt beyond being shaken up, so I called for help out of the window. Some man I don't know who helped mo out, and I then turned in and helped to get others out. A little while after I got out, though, the whole thing took fire, and we were forced to g:ve up working on it, bit by bit, and let it burn with the horrible cries of those inside in our ears. At one place there were two or three women, apparently all together, and we tried to get them out They were 6uriekiug all the time in a manner to freeze one's blood, for the fire was comiug nearer to them all the time. We worked as long as we could, bt could not get them out, and the fire came all irouud them and finally silenced their creams. To hear their desperate cries, as the fire came nearer and nearer, and finally reached them, was simply ap palling." FIRE ADDS TO T1IE HORROR. The wreck burned to the trucks, no facilities being at hand to extinguish tho fire. A car load of the injured was taken eastward from the wreck Jthis forenoon. They were maimed, bruised and burned, some quite badly. A PATHETIC IXCIDEXT A pathetic iucident of the wreck is re lated by the station agent. Is ia of a young lady from Ohio, whose riarn.c could not be remembered. She was one of the passengers on the ill-fated train, and wi en the crash came, with presence of mind and energy worth a etrong mind ed maaculina, she seized ah axe from its resting place on the sido of the car aid hewed her way through to the window. Her own safety assured, her thoughts tnrned to tfie helpless unfortunate one whoee cries f or assiitance Bounded behind her. They did not call in vain, for she rushed in the direction of the cries and personally aided thoso poor eouls from the wreck. To use her own language: "I did all I could, and would have con tinued had I not heard Dr. Terry crying and moaning piteousiy that his feet were burning. Then my strength gave way, and I was compelled to desist and eek assistance mvsclf." BULL-HEADED RAILWAY OFFICIALS. 11 p. m. All efforts to obain informo tion from Huntington as to the names of the killed and wounded have up to this hour been unavailing. The Chicago Atlantic railway officials, who went there with the coroner to-day, seem to have complete possession of nil scourcos of in formation on thia point and they refuse positively to make public the names of the victims of the disaster. The killed and wounded were taken from the scene of the wreck to Huntington early this afternoon accompanied by the eoroner. The water tank at which ths wreck took place was tended by an employb for whose accomodation a small shanty was attached to the pump house. For a long time he has not used it, but has gone into Kouts every night, leaving the tank entirely alone. II-3 was asked to-night what precau tions were taken in his absence to pre vent such a crtabtrophe as that which had occured. "Not a precaution", he an swered, "except a sort of thing they call a semaphore. It is an English contri vance and is supposed to act as a signal, but it don't."' Tho wrecking force at the scene ef the disaster numbers 300 men and their many lights, stretched along the full length of tho wreck, can be seen miles away over the marsh. Enongh of the wreck is still left to give an idea of tlw mass of ruins strewed before the tank after the collision. The freight train in part es caped, but tho front cars wcro piled in the most fantastic ways upon each other. Not a vestige of any of the coaches, woodwork was left. The telescoping of the baggage car, smoker and day coach had been complete and the speedy flames did the rest, leaving not a splinter, the sleeper even sharing the fate of the oth ers. The bodies which the coroner found were burned into cinders and covered the ground under the trucks. At midnight the track was still impas sable. Tho coroner telegraphs the Asso ciate press from Huntington at mid night as follows: "Cannot as yet give the names of the killed. There were eight adults and one child dead and two persons wounded at Kouts. Know nothing of anv other wounded." Yellow Fever Spreading- Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 10. A tele gram from Dr. Wall, president of the Tampa board of health, to-night says: "The fever is still spreading. Six new cases and one death to-day. Several patients are in a critical condition." A non-professional opinion that the disease was not yellow fever is not accepted by board of health officers anywhere. Aston ishment is felt at the action of Superin tendent Nash, of the mail service, in ordering rout agents to go into Tampa. The Duval county board of health has issued a notice that infected mail matter will be .stopped and the mail clerks quarantined on the border of the county. TRAVELING MEN VICTORIOUS. The Minnesota & Northwestern Will Reduce Passenger Rates. Davenport, Ia., Oct. 10. F. W. Smith President of the Iowa division of the National Traveling Men's association, returned to-day from St. Paul where he had been conferring with President Stick ney, of the Minnesota & Nortewestern railroad. The latter assured him that he should at once give formal notice of the withdrawal of the road from the Western Passenger associatio n and 9 soon as legally free, would place mileage tickets on sale at two cents per mile. This fore shadows the general breaking up of the old $25 rate for 1,000 mile tickets. Water at Falls City. Falls City, Neb., Oct. 12 Last even ing at a depth of nitc-ty-four feet, in the public test well in this city, the workmen, after passing through nineteen feet of blue clay entered a fine bed of coarse gravel, that appears to be nbundar.tly supplied with water, and all those inter ested are greatly pleased. Against Sunday Trains. Dcbugue, Ia., Oct. 10. Commissioner Coffin addressed a large mass meeting at the orera house last night. A resolution demanding the legislature to require the railroads to adopt an automatic car ' coupler and to tease Sunday trains TO adopted. FIGHTING THE RED FLAG Master Workman Powdorly Makes The Speech of His Llfo. Defending Law and Ordor. Minneapoliu, Oct., 10. Thero was only one session of the knights of labor assembly today and at the. call to order at 2 p. m. the committees were not ready to report An opportunity was thus pre sented for bringing up the long lokcd for anarchy discussions. James E.Quiun of dibtrict No. 40, of New York, present ed the following resolution under a sus pension of the rules: "CouBidcring that the development of the human mind in the nineteenth century has reached a point where public opinion is expressed almost universally against capital punish ment or tho taking of human life by judi cial process, aa a relic of barbarism; there fore, be it lltsoloed,Thnt this convention expresses sorrow that the men in Chicago were doomed to death and use every endeavor to secure a commutation of the nentenco of death passed upon them." The convention was once more thrown into tho wildest excitement, scores of delegates at the same time trying to ob tain tho floor. General Master Work man Powdorly decided the resolution ont of order. Joseph Vans, of Pitisburg, appealed from the decision. The appeal was lost by a vote of 151 to 52. Before the appeal was taken Mr. Powderly called General Worthy Foreman Griffith, of Chicago, tothe chair, and in a short but vehement speveh called upon thj conven tion to defeat the resolution. lie said no true Knight of Lador could be an an archist, lie appealed to delegates in im passioned words not to pervert tho pur poses of the order by the passage of any such resolutions, It was the hottest speech Powderly was ever known l", make. Quinn, who offered the resolution, voted aye on the appeal in order to move a reconsideration. A number of other warm speeches were made. This w-as the principal episode of the day. Ths gen eral opinion of the delegates tonight is that no serious fight will come up before tho convention closes its work. A sharp discussion is likely to occur over the law governing national trades districts. The fight that it was supposed would be made against Powderly and other general offi cers, is said to have been given up. Frost and Attachments. O'Neill, Neb., Oct. 11. This section received its first heavy frost last night. Very little harm was done, as corn is very gencratly out of the way and will be a much better crop than was anticipated earlier in the season. Sohn C. Hayes, general nierchandico and saloon, ha3 been closed by attach ments. He will resist them. An Overdose of Morphine- Auburn, Neb., Oct. 10 Miss Emma Reves, a step-daughter of Joseph Mur dock, of South Auburn, died in bed this morning from an overdose of morphine. She was subject to severe attacks of neu ralgia and took the drug to relieve pain. No inquest has been hld, although there is talk of one. Her mother is prostrated. .
