Accommodation Train on Northern
Central Railroad Wrecked Steam
, Pipes Burst and Add to Horror of
! Accident-Coaches Badly Broken Up.
Nownrlc , N. Y. , Aug. 30. The accom
modation train leaving Sodus Point
over the Northern Central railroad
nnil which arrives in this village at
C o'clock was derailed last night at
Falrvlllo. Engineer William Moaghcr
nnd Howard Tubbs , ticket agent at
Bodus Point , wore klllled and 28 per-
BOHR were injured.
The train was mad a up at Sodus
Point and consisted of four coaches ,
a baggage car and engine , with Will-
lam Meaghor at the throttla. The
train was running nearly 40 miles an
hour. Approaching the station at Pair-
vtllo there Is a curve and gravel pit.
For some unknown reason the engine
jumped the track while passing the
gravel pit. The force of the accident
turned the engine completely around ,
throwing the five cars on their sides.
The train load of some 150 passengers
was thrown Into the ditch and the en
gine and all the cars were badly
broken up.
The cause of the / wreck Is not
Itnown exactly , but It is thought the
rails spread. The country near the
scene of the wreck Is Illicitly popu
lated , and it was not long before
farmers were driving from all direc
tions. The injured and dying were
quickly pulled from the debris and Im
provised conrhrs were made on the
grass. Medical help was summoned
nnd within a short hour several physi
cians were on the scone. Nearly all
the Injured were badly scalded nnd
this was caused by the bursting of
the steam pipes running under the

Nineteen Are Missing.
Philadelphia , Aug. 30. It developed
yesterday that the result of the ex

City of Trenton while on her way up
the Delaware river from this city to
Trenton Wednesday was more appall
ing than was at first supposed. Nine
persons are known positively to bo
dead , at least 19 arc missing , most ol
whom are believed to have been on
the steamer , and two of the Injured
etlll in the hospital probably will die
Although the searchers , consisting
of a corps of city police , have been
dragging the river ever since yester
day , they have been unable to find any
more bodies. That there are more vie
tlms In the river , is the firm belief
of the authorities and their failure to
find additional dead is supposed to be
due to the strong current in the river
at the point where the explosion oc
curred. Th water was pumped out ol
the hull of the burned steamer , after
which a careful search was made for
adltional victims , but none were
As to the exact cause of the oxplo
filon nothing is known , but a rigid In
vestlgation Is to be conducted at once
Many of the passengers who escapee
maintain that the City of Trenton
which was late when she left this city
was racing at her topmost speed ant
that If this had not been the case the
accident would not have happened.
A telegram received from Bristol
Pa. , says that Miss Elizabeth Lippln
cott , a school teacher of that place
who was on the City of Trenton , has
not been heard from. This makes 20
persons reported aa mlsslnt ?
