Car and Trailer Telescoped by Trac
Mattoon, 111., Aug. 31. Fifteen per
Bona were killed and fifty Injured in
a head-on collision between an Inter
urban express train, consisting of a
motor car cud a trailer, and a traction
cur on the Mattoon and Charleston
electric line. The crash occurred on
a sharp curve, one mile west ot
Charleston, 11!. A confusion of orders
received over the telephone is sald'tc
have been the cause of the accident
The cars approached oach other at :i
high rate of speed and the impact was
so terrific that the motor car anil
trailer were telescoped by the traction
car. There was no warning and few
passongers had time to escape by
jumping. The passengers, nearly all
of whom were on route to the Colet
county fair at Charleston, wore
crushed or maimed where they sat In
tholr seats. Some of them who es
caped and who were able to spunk
said the scene at the wreck was
grewsomc. The dead and dying were
jammed together in n mass. Women
woro shrieking with pain nnd children
were crying for mothers who were
thought to bo among the dend. When
the news of tho wreck reached Mnt
toon, special cars werothurried to the
scone and tho dend and Injured were
brought to the morgue and hospital
hero Some of the Injured are in a
critical condition nnd there is little
hope of their recovery.

Medical aid was summoned from
this city, but In the meantime doctors
and others had hurried from Charles-1
ton, a mile from the scene of tho dls-
aster. Tho dead and injured wore ex. '
traded from tho broken mass of tlm-1
hers and seats. First aid was given
tho maimed nnd bruised- and the dead
were laid alongside the track. Tl.oj
! victims could not be laken to Charles- j
I ton, bfcause the track was blocked '
j In that direction and consequently I
wore brought to this city. I
Tho line on which the disaster hap-'
poned Is but twelve miles long, run-1
nlng between Mattoon and Charles
ton, and lias but n single track. Tole-1
phones are placed every few miles, at
which orders nre transmitted to the I
conductors and niotonnen of the ears
passing over the road. A misunder
standing of one of these telephone or
ders Is said to have caused the dis
aster RIVER GIVES UP ITS DEAD.
Quebec Bridge Officials Say List May
Number Seventy-Eight. ,
Quebec, Aug. 31. Several engineers '
visited the scene of the bridge dlsas-'
ter. It was evident, they said, that
there had been a miscalculation of the ,
tensile strength in some spot, that '
the weak spot had given way under
tho strain of hundreds of thousands .
of tons of steol and that this had upset '
the balanced proportions of the struc
ture and caused the collapse.
Bridge employes were busy looking
for. bodies among tho piles of iron '
which Ml on tho shore. Wonun wen
sitting mi logs weeping and as a b dj
was brought ns-hore there was a wild
rush to see if It was that of a lost
relative. As the bodies wcie found
they were carried to one of the com
pany's buildings. The general esti
mate of the number of dend Is seventy.
The number of dead victims, as stated
at the olllce of the Phoenix Bridge
company, Is 18 Canadians, 28 Indians
and 17 Americans, but the ofllclals
would not give out any nnnies at pies
out. They also state that five Cnna
dlans, four Indians nnd throe Amer
lenns are injured. The Quebec Brldg
comnany's ofllclals place the numbe
of dead at seventy-eight.
Some of the bodies of the unfi
tunate men can be seen below the si
