Now-uric , N. Y. , Aug. 30. The accom

over the Northern Central railroad
nnd which arrives hi this village at
G o'clock was derailed last night at
Falrvlllo. Engineer William Meaghor
nnd Howard Tubbs , ticket agent at
Sodus Point , were klllled and 28 per
sons were Injured.
The train was niado up at Sodus
Point and consisted of four coaches ,
a baggage car and engine , with Will-
lam Meaghor at the throttle. The
train was running nearly 40 miles an
hour. Approaching the station at Fair-
villa 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
The cause of the / wreck Is not
Imown exactly , but It Is thought the
rails spread. The country near the
Bceno of the wreck Is thickly popu
lated , and It was not long before
farmers were driving from all direc
tions , The injured and dying % vore
quickly pulled from the debris nnd Im
provised couches were made on the
grass. Medical help was ? summoned

Appalling Results of Trenton Explo
' slon Become Apparent.
I'1 , Nineteen Are Missing.
Philadelphia , Aug. 30. It developed
yesterday that the result of the ex
plosion of the boiler on the steamer
City of Trenton while on her way up
the Delaware river from this city to
Trenton Wednesday was more appall
A Ing than was at first supposed. Nine
persons are known positively to bo
dead , at least 19 are missing , most of
whom are believed to have been on
the steamer , and two of the Injured
etill In the hospital probably will die.
Although the searchers , consisting
01 a corps 01 city pence , nave oeen
dragging the river ever since yester
day , they have been unable to find any
more bodies. That there are more vic
tims 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. The water was pumped out of
the hull of the burned steamer , after
which a careful search was made for
adltlonal victims , but none were
As to the exact cause of the explo
sion nothing is known , but a rigid In
vestigation Is to be conducted at once.
Many of the passengers who escaped
maintain that the City of Trenton ,
which was late when she left this city ,
was racing at her topmost speed and
that If this had not been the case the
accident would not have happened.
A telegram received from Bristol ,
Pa. , says that Miss Elizabeth Llppln-
cott , a school teacher of that place ,
who was on the City of Trenton , has
not been heard from. This makes 20
persons reported as missing
