Resides these, more than a score
sustained injuries of a more or less
serious nature, whose names could
not be learned.
All the dead were burned to death
by flaming oil.
Of the fatally injurfed, all are
more or less burned about the
limbs and body, but the worst in
juries sustained are fearfully burn
ed, heads and faces. There are also
many injitried internally from in-
haling Haines, which parched their
throats to such tin extent that their
escape from instant death is almost
miraculous. The other injuried

parts of the head, limbs and body.
The nwfulness of the catastrophe
arouses wonder that the casualties
are not twice as large as they re.

In the verdict of the coroner's
jury in the case of Engineer Koss
no attempt is made to fix the blame
although it is understood that the
brakeman, Al Getton, is responsible
for the open switch, and he has fled
to escape the consequences of his
neglect of duty. Coroner Kinder
empaneled another jury and has
been busy all day holding inquests
on the other bodies.
The bodies of the dead were pre

will occur tomorrow.

ly burned, said: "There was noth
ing I could do. Water would do no
good, and so I stood looking on. I
had started away when the explo

on my knees by the crash. I felt
the hot oil light on my head and
hands and felt the burning sensa

my head in the earth and threw dirt
on my hands.
One curious feature about the af
fair is that when the tank exploded
the oil shot directly upward to a
height of 200 or 300 feet, then, as
though impelled by some central
force suddenly shot out in all di-rections.

The cabinet held a long consulta

Lamar died here at 8:,"iO o'clock this
evening. His'death was a terrible
shock to the community. It was
sudden in the extreme, for although
lie has been ailing tor some time,
He appeared to be gradually gain
ing in health, He came from Wash
ington to Macon about a month ago
and has been visiting at the resi
dence of W. H. Virgin, in Vines
ville, a suburb of this city. This
afternoon about 3 o'clock Justice
Lamar took down his overcoat in
tending to go to the city, but was
met at the door by lr. Llewllyn, a
friend, with whom he returned to
the sitting room. At that time and
during all the afternoon lie was in
good spirits and at dinner at 0:50
this evening he seemed to have a
good appetite. Dr. Llewllyn left the
house about 8 o'clock ami a few
minutes later the justice was seized

LuciusQuintus Citicinnatus Lam
ar was born in Putnam county,
Georgia, September 1, 1821, and
after his father's death was taken
to Oxford, Miss., Where he received
part of his education. He gradua
ted at Emery college, Georgia, in
IS 15, studied law in Macon, and was
admitted to the bar in 1817. In 181'J
he returned to Oxford. Mis., and for
a year held a professorship in the
university of Mississippi. He re
signed and resumed, the practice of
law i n Goverington, Ga. He was
elected to the legislature in 1853
and iu ISM again returned to Mis
sissippi and settled on his planta
tion in Lafayette. Being shortly
tifterwards elected to congress as a
democrat he served from 18,"7 until
1HO0, when he resigued to take a
seat in the secession convention of
his native state. He cast his for
tunes with the ''lost cause" and left
the army with the rank of colonel,
after having shared in many en
gagements. He was again elected
in the university of Mississippi and
again took a seat in the house of
tepresentatives, and was elected to
the senate March, n, 1877.
March 5, 1880, President Cleveland
appointed Mr. Lamar secretary of
the interiorand afterwards elevated
him to a seat on the supreme bench
Mr. Lamar was perhaps as promi
nent a figure as any that has oc
cupied a seat on the bench of that
august body. He left Washington
for the south about a nionte ago,
I In had been for some time confined
to his home in that city and was un
able to attend all sessions of the
supreme court, his absence causing
some little delay in the rendering
of the well known lake front case,
wherein the city of Chicago and the
Illinois-Central railroad were the
participants. Just before his de
parture from Washington, however,
Judge Lamar was thought to have
considerably improved. It was not
without dismal lorebodings that his
friends learned after his departure
that he had been compelled to take
one or two intervals of rest before
arriving here and his death, while
itwill cause a very severe shock in
this community, where he was so
widely known, and affectionately
regarded, will not be in every par-
ticular a great surprise.
