Berlin, Ang, 21 The succession of
the Duke of EdinburJ to the rtUershlr,
of the duchies of Saxe-Coburg of Gotha
dominates political interest in Germany
and widely divergent rumors In regard
to the matter are every where circulated.
Putting all these aside, there is no
doubt' the succession of an English
duke has surprised and dissatisfied
the nation, though the fact is quietly
accepted by the duchies concerned.
It is probable that Emperor
William would have preferred that
Prince Alfred, the only son of the
Duke ofEdinburg, should have suc
ceeded Duke Ernest. Indeed it is be
lieved that his majesty hoped that he
might induce his uncle, the Duke of
Edinburg, to waive his claim to the
succession in favor of Prince Alfred.
His majesty is reported to have told
the duke that under any circumstances
a regency would be impossible, and
that he must take the throne himself

A Terrible Wreck.
Loxo Island Citt, L, 1. Aug. 28.
A frightful accident occurred at Bush
wick Junction, on the Long Island
railroad. A Uocksway train ran into
'he rear end of a Manhattan beach
train about 11:33 o'clock, telescoping
leveral of the cars. Eight people are
reported to have been killed and about
thirty-live others more or less injured.
Sixteen dead have been taken from
the wreck and their bodies are now ly
ing in llavenmyer's tinshops at Laurel
Hill, which have been converted into a
temporary morgue.' It Is now i
Uraated that the number of injured will
reach in the '.neighborhood of thirty-
Sve or forty people, many of whom, it
is believed, will die. Owing to the lack
if telegraphic facilities and the lateness
f the hour, it is with utmost difficulty
hat any particulars con be obtained.
The cident, it Is said, wasaue to
the negligence of the tower man at
Laurel Hill, who let the Rockaway
train in on the section before the
Manhattan beach train had pulled out.

Long. Island City, L. I., Aug. 29.
An accident which cost the lives of
fourteen people occurred shortly after
midnight this morning in- a little vil
lage In Berlin near Calvary cemetery
in the town of Newton. The Ing
Island train that telt Manhattan beach
at 11:15 was overtaken by the train
that left RockaAv teach fifteen min

that ensued the two rear cars of the
five that made up the Manhattan bsach
train were demolished and the middle
'car overturned.
cause axd extent of ttie disaster.
The accident happened at 12:30. It
was over an hour before the news
reached any outside point It came by
a messenger who walked into Long Is
land City. The railroad company im
mediately dispatched a relief train with
all the physicians obtainable, consist

in the block to allow of another train
ahead getting at a safe distance. The
llockatray beach train came dasliing
along behind, ran into the same block
crashed into the rear end of the Man
hattan beach train. Both were crowded
last trains from ti.o respective resorts.
There were five cars iu the Uauhatten
beach train, all of them open can.
The Rockaway train plunged in and
ploughed its way completely through
the two rear cars and partly wrecked
the third. Passengers ii the three cars
were maimed and mangled horribly
and: heir shrieks of terror and pain
were awful. The Rockaway engine
was wrecked. Its smokestnetc resem
bled a pin cushion from the timbers of
tbe wrecked cars sticking into it. Up
on these timbers human beings were
impaled some dead and others gasping
their last. High upon the top lay tbe
dead body of a man, yet unklen ilied.
Upon one ot the timbers was imDaled
the body of iMrs. Oscar Dietzel, twenty
nine years old, of 122 East 114th street
New York city. Upon another was
the body of Sidney Weinsteln, a boy
thirteen year old, of 519 hast Fifty
eighth street, New York city.
The scene of the wreck was indes
cribably horrible. The deadend wound
ed were massed among the wreckage,
beside, upon and beyond the tracks.
Everything was showered with the
blood of the dead and wounded and the
cries of the latter rose high above the
hissing ef steam and the calls of fran
tic trainmen. As fast as the wounded
were taken from the wreck they were
carried to tbe relief train and cared for.
General-Manager E. R. Reynolds and
Superintendent V. II. Blood wi re at
the scene early. They stated that the
cause of the accident was still unkuowu
that it was a question of veracity be
tween Tower Switchmen Nutt and
Engineer Coucrite of the Rockway
train. The latter bad reported that a
heavy fog prevailed at tha time, which
was true. He declared that the- signals
were set at safety, indicating a clear
road, and be went ahead without re
ducing speed. Suddenly Fireman
Robert Price, his companion, exclaim
ed: "My God! there is a train ahead!"
Looking ahead the engineer saw
through the mist the red lights that
always hang at the rear end of a train,
and be declares that he immediately
reversed his engine and put on the
steam brakes. Then he and Fireman
Trice jumped for ' heir lives. When
tbe wrecked engine was examined this
morning the statement as to the re
versed lever and steam breaks was
found to be trua. Tbe only remain
ing qnestion was as to whether he or
N,i)tt was right about the danger signal.
This morning it w?s at danger and
Nutt insisted that it had remained so
ever since he set It to warn Engineer
Concrite. Manager Reynolds and Sup.
intendent Blood took all the statements
and will hold a rigid investigation to
morrow. -
