Ono Moment of Forgot fnliioan.
A moment of forgctfulut-ss or nbsont
mindedncAs on tho part of a brakeman who
is given tho best of reputation by tho Wu
baBh officials tells tbo story of tho seconds
that preceded tho catastrophe. As to tho
facts themselves there is no room for dis
pute. Freight train No. 4, enstbound,
from Chicago, was duo at this point at 4:20
a. m. It was under orders to tako thu Hid
ing and await thu arrival of westbound ex
press No. (-S, which nccordlng to the sched
ule should lmvo passed tho Kingsbury sta
(Ion at 4:40. Tho express, however, was
nwny behlud time, mid owing to tho henvy
travel growing out of tho World's full- It
was divided Into two sections, tho second
section running twelve minutes behind
tho llrst. Doth sections were made up nt
Uuflulo, tho passengers including people
from thnt city us well us from tho various

Whut Wui Urnkciunu Thompson Dolnc?
With tho knowledgo that under tho
schedule, ho had twenty minutes to spare
Euglnecr Whitman, of the freight tiain,
proceeded up tho siding to the main lino to
tnku water, the nwltch being thrown opon
by Herbert Thompsou, head brakeman of
the freight. After tho cngino had taken
water tho freight was backed to tho sid
lug, and Thompson closed the switch. Re
garding this latter fact there is no room
for quostlon; for nt C:10 tho llrst section of
tbo express, thirty mlinitcs late, swept
past on tho main track, Hiving tho usual
signal long and two short blasts to Inti
mate to tbo freight that a second section
wns following close behind. What wero
the movements of Urnkeman Thompson
in tho next few moments remains to
For tho Dcndly Switch I Open.
Certain it is tliHt when twelve minutes
later the second section of tho westbound
express camo thundering along at a speed
of forty mlleii an hour tho switch was open.
Iu the early dawn tho red lights nt the
tnt Itch and tho target were hardly dlscerna
ble, and It Is n question whether either the
engineer or flremnnof the passenger looked
for them, secure In their knowledgo that
week in nnd week out they had swept ovoi
the same ground without hindrance. Like
a Hash of lightning, therefore, tho train
took the siding, nnd almost before the
engineer and fireman realized that thoy
had missed tho main track they hud
Crashed Into tho waiting freight.
Shrieks mid Oruiins Fill the Air.
A second later and the air waw filled
with shrieks, groans, moans aud piteous
appeals for help and assistance, Tho pas
senger train consisted of a baggngo car,
three ordinary coaches aud two sleepers,
nnd tho forco of the collision was such
thnt only the rear sleeper csenpod injury,
Tho locomotive of tho freight wns drivun
half way iuto tho car in its rear, nnd the
baggngo car of thu passeugor train was
thrown to one Bide, whllo tho passenger
coaches partially telescoped each other,
and tho Grand Trunk coach cut into tho
Bleeping car "Kausns," carrying away the
smoking compartment nnd sections one

Tho forward conches wero completely

Where Thompson, tho brakeman whe
caused (ho wreck, is nobody knows.
When Engineer Whitman had succeeded
iu extricating himself from tho debris ot
tbo meat car Into which ho had been
driven by thu forco of tho collision he
found Thompsou on tho track as pale as a
ghost and ttembling In every llhro,
"What havo you doner" demanded the en
gineer, whobo right arm hung helpless at
his side uhllo the blood pourul from a cut
lu his head.
"I must havo left that switch open,"
was Thompson's reply, aud without an
other word ho tool; to his heels aud dis

n little filibustering nnd appealed to tho

but thoy would not.
In tho housdlteed called attention to the
journal, which said that Crisp has refused
to cntertnln "dilatory" motions, whllo
Crisp had uedulously avoided that dread
