of Tkesa Iajared.
Burlington fast mall train No. ft, east
bound, crashed Into a string of Wabash
freight cars at the Wabash crossing last
evening, with the result that the engineer
and fireman of the fast mall were fatally
scalded, the locomotive turned over Into the
ditch and a number of the freight car
N. If. WOODS, engineer of the fast mall.
ED HOOSIER, fireman of the fast mall.
The fast mall was one hour and fifty
five minutes late, and It Is aald In order
to make up time did not make the usual
stop at a point near the Milwaukee round
house, about a quarter of a mile from the
Wabash crossing. The string of freight
cars, which was being switched from the
transfer to the Wabash yards,' was goltwr
east and was about half way over the
crossing when the mall train dashed Into
It. The mall train struck between a car
loaded with grain and one loaded with
telephone poles, throwing the grain car to
the right of the track and the one laden
with telephone poles to the left. At a point
about thirty feet south of the crossing
the engine left the track and turned over
down the slight embankment, on Its side.
Engineer Woods was under the cab, and
It was some time before he could be re
leased, as a number of poles from a
wrecked freight car blocked the way. Ed
Hoosler. the fireman, managed to crawl
out from under the cab unassisted. Both
men were horribly scalded from the es
caping steam, and It was thought that
Woods would not survive until he reached
the hospital. The men were taken to
Mercy hospital, where Hoosler, who was
supposed to be the least Injured of the
two, died about t o'clock and Woods one
hour later. The accident occurred a few
minutes before ( o'clock.
Mall Clerks I ntsjnred.
None of the mall clerks received any In
Jury. With the exception of the first mall
car, which wa running dead and from
which the front trucks were torn off, the
car remained on the track. There waa no
body In the econd car except the conduc
tor, the mall clerks being In the third and
last car. One of the clerk happened to be
looking out of the door and when he saw
that the collision wa Inevitable he warned
the other to brace themselves which they
The Wabash switch ehglne waa In charge
of Tardmaster P. H. Moran and he stated
that the fast mall failed to make the usual
stop near the Milwaukee roundhouse and
whistle. There were fifteen car In hi
train and the fast mall struck It about Ave
car from the engine.
It was stated that engineer Woods failed
to see the freight trlln on account of a
field of corn around which the track curves.
Whew the engineer noticed the string of
car on th crossing he closed the throttle
and reversed hi engine but too late to
avoid the crash. It wa found that he had
turned on the air and that the air brake
war all set except on the last mail car.
On hi way to the hospital In the ambu
lance Engineer Woods, who was In a seml
unconsdoua condition, kept muttering,
"Stick to the throttle."
A far a could be learned laat night the
locomotive of the faat 'mall waa not badly
damaged but four of the Wabash freight
car were badly wrecked. One car loaded
with grain burst In halve and fell In pieces
like th stave of a barrel from which the
hoop had been taken off. The grain from
two of the wrecked car covered the tracks.
For about forty feet each aide of th crow
ing the track were torn up and twisted.
The Wabash crossing Is near Twenty-
third avenue, south of the Rock Island and
Milwaukee yards, and It was fully an hour
after the accident before the ambulance
could reach the scene of the accident to
convey Woods and Hoosler to th hospital.

and went east via Plattsmouth. th track

There has been a growing dissatisfaction
on the part of the legislators concerning
th opposltjon to the Interest of each other
exhibited by the schools of the state and
the desire on the part of certain of the
schools to demand whatever of equipment
or building la given another. In spite of th
fact that the schools and the field they
occupy are entirely separate.
The three schools of the slate are lo
cated at Iowa City, Ames and Cedar Falls,
and at this time all of. the schools are re
peating courses; that Is, th Ftsje uplv
sity and State Agricultural college hara
courses In engineering ami the Slate in
verslty has duplicated the normal course
of the State Normal college. The three
schools come Into competition when the
funds of the state are divided, all but the
Normal making demands for thousands
more than they expect. In order that they
may not be surpassed by the other.
It Is the hope of the legislature that some
method will be reported which will check
the growing difference of the schools.
