TWO ENGINEERS OF BURLINGTON
IN LIST OF DEAD AT STAN
TON. IOWA, WRECK
The wreck of the three Burlington
trains early Sunday morning, at
Stanton, three miles east of Red Oak.
la., took toll of the livej of three
railroad men and one unidentified
tramp who was stealing a ride on the
blind of No. 1. The dead are C. E.
Tindall. engineer. Lincoln. Charles
S. Conklin, engineer and B. B. An
derson, fireman, both of Creslon.
In speaking of the wreck the State
Journal has the following account:
Engineer C. E. Tindall. 3415 Ran
dolph street, was a well known Bur
lington engineer whose record in the
service was said to be absolutely
clear. Nevertheless, on the face of
the reports from the scene of the
wreck railroad men could deduce but
one cause for the accident, and that
was that in some way No. 10 had
run by a stop signal.
The road at that place is double
track and block signalled. The
freight train ahead of No. 10 had set
the signals. No. 10 ran into the
freight train. No. 1, then about due,
probably had the signals set against
it by the wreckage piled over on the
westbound track, but the train was
so near that it could not stop. The
accident, involving three trains,
could not have happened on a single
track, yet every precaution known
to signalling, had been employed to
prevent trouble of this kind.
As the accident happened on the
lines east direct reports were not re
ceived at Lincoln. Lincoln officials
of the road had no official informa
tion concerning the accident.
Egineer Tindell was well known
among railroad men and was highly
regarded as an efficient, safe and re
liable runner. He was young in
years but old in railroad experience
and had worked his way from the
bottom to a passenger run.
Mr. and Mrs. Tindall had just rea
lized a long cherished project when
they left their apartment at S31
South Eleventh street and moved into
their own home at 3415 Randolph
street. They had one child, a boy
five years old.
Word from Creston. Ia., late this
afternoon, was that the remains of
Engineer C. E. Tindall would be
brought to Lincoln Monday night on
No. ai, arriving here at 1:50 a. m.
No. 10 was not the regular equip
ment of that train. No. 10 out of
Denver Sunday had trouble east of
McCook. being blocked for seven or
eight hours by a freight derailment
ahead of it. A stub No. 10 was made
up at Lincoln to carry he equipment
from No. 44 from the northwest, and
this was delivered to the lines east
at Omaha and run through. The
regular No. 10 passed through Lin
coln about 6 a. m. as one section of
C. Conklin. engineer on No. 1. who
was killed, lived at Creston but be
cause he ran to Lincoln was well
known here and highly regarded.
Railroad men who read the account
of the accident said that Conklin nev
er had a chance, being inside the
block when the wreckage was thrown
over on his track.
Conductor Joseph Marshall of Lin
coln, was in cbafge of No. 10. He
was not huTt. He lives at 1446 S
Burlington reports showed that
two men only had been killed, and
that both firemen had been seriously
hurt. Press reports indicated how
ever, that the fireman cn No. 1 had

mm DAMAGE IS
DONE TO WINDOWS
Stores of Earl A. Stanfield and Mrs.
Eima Pease Have Windows Bad
ly Damaged Last Night.
From Tuesday' Daily.
The large plate Rlass windows in
the stores of Earl A. Stantield and
Mrs. Emma Pease in the Coates
block, were badly damaged last night
by what seems to have been particles
of the links from mud chains of an
automobile. The breaking of the
windows was eiiscovered late in the
evening by Mr. Stanfield and in front
of his place of business the sidewalk
was covered by several small links of
what seems to have been an automo
bile chain. Mr. Stanfield states that
he had noticed a car standing in
front of his place of busitu-ss and
thinks that the chain became frozen
to the pavement and when the car
was started the chain broke and the
result was that the particles of the
broken chain were hurled into the
large plate glass windows.
The windows of the Stanfield store
are badly riddled by the holes and it
will be necessary to have a new win
dow placed in at least one side as a
large crack extends from the top tc
the bottom of one of the windows.
At the store of Mrs. Pease the
damage was not quite so serious al
though there are several holes in the
The damage will amount to sev
eral hundred dollars at the lowest
possible figure. Several months ag
