Atlantic City. N. .1.. July 110. A ter
rible railroad catastrophe took place on
the Meadows about two miles out of
this city shortly after ti.SU o'clock this
en-idiot, resulting in the deaths of
foity-two people, so far as now can be
leal lied, and the wounding of eighty
others. A train left here consisting: of
seven cars over the West Jersey rail
road, bearing a special excursion of
Bed .Men and their ft lends of Bridge
ton and Salem, and had reached the
crossing of the Heading railroad, when
It win? struck by the .V-10 down express
I rum I'liiladelpliia, demolishing two
cats and telescoping the two following.
The engine of the Heading train be
came a total wreck, killing the engineer
and fatally injuring the tlremun, and
tin- cur behind It also was thrown from
the track, and many of its occupants
killed or Injured. The responsibility of
the collision has not yet been placed, but
William Thurlow, the operator at the
block lower, situated at the crossing,
has been placed under arrest by order
of the coroner.
Leaving this city the tracks of the
Went Jersey road run parallel to those
of tie-Camden and Atlantic until after
they cross the draw bridge, when they
switch oft' to (lie south, crossing the
Heading load at an obtuse angle.
John !reiner. the engineer of the
West Jersey saw the Ktudirg train ap
proaching tin crossing at a swift speed
but as the signals were open for him
to iiroceed on his way lie continued.
His engine had barely cleared the
track of the Heading when the loconio.
live of the latter train, pvhlcli left
I'liiladelpliia at "i.-io p. in. struck til
ths! car full in the center, throwing
It tar off the track Into a nearby ditch,
and completely submerging it. The
second car of the West Jersey train
was also carried into the ditch, the
third and fourth cars being telescoped.
The engine of tin- Heading train was
thrown to the other side of the track,
cariying with it the til st coach. A
few minutes utter the collision, to add
to tile horror of the situation the boil
er of the Heading locomotive exploded,
scalding several to death, and casting
its boiling spray over many of the In
jured passengers. As soon as the news
leached this city It spread widecast and
thousands of people Mocked to the
scene. The road lending to the place
of the collision was a constant profes
sion of hacks, busses, and bicycles, and
all kinds of Vehicles, while thousands
of peihstrians hurried along the path
to render w hut assistance they could
or to satisfy their curiosity.
Darkness fell ipitckly. and the work
of resc liin;- the Injured and the dead
bodies was car. led out under the glare
of huge bonlires. It was a gruesome
sight presented to onlookers as the
uiaugl-d and burnt forms of the dead
were carried from the wreckage which
bound ami killed tlc-lil side by side on
the gravel bank near the track, with
no other ball than the few old newspa
pers gathered from the passengers. The
wounded were iib Kly gathered togeth
er and carried by train and wagon to
the Atlantic City hospital, where six of
them died shortly alter their arrival.
The old excursion house at the foot of
Mississippi avenue, was converted Into
a morgue, and thither the dead were
taken. At a late hour this evening
there were twenty-nine bodies laid out
there none of whom are as yet identi
fied. Till-: CITY EXCITED.
Tliis city Is terribly excited over the
accident. The streets in the vicinity of
excursion house and the city hospital,
us well as the road leading to the scene
of the accident, being packed with peo
ple anxious to learn the latest. The
Hridgetoii and Salem excursionists who
escaped injury were brought back to
this city and sent home on a special
train several hours later in the evening.
James W, lloyt. secretary of the de
partment of public safety, immediately
upon learning of the extent of the catas
trophe, telegraphed for the Philadelphia
medical emergency corps, lifteen of
whom responded and hurried to this
city on a special train which left Phila
delphia at 10.45 p. m. These surgeons
materially aided the volunteer corps of
this city, which embraced almost ev
ery physician at present within Its con
llnes. Many of the Injured were taken
to hotels, as the city hospital soon be
cume overcrowded. About thirty of the
wounded had their Injuries dressed and
were able to proceed on their way. It
Is expected that fully a dozen of those
now lying in the hospital will not sur
vive their injuries.
Mrs. Kdward Farr. the wife of the
Heading engineer, who met diath while
performing his duty, und was found
with his had on the throttle and the
other on the brake, when informed of

death, was unable to withstand tht?

Canton. O.. July 30. A delegation
numbering about 500 came from Knox

i vcr the Pennsylvania line at 4 o'clock.
The Grand Army band of Pittsburg was

McKlmey mounted his chair to respond
there was an outbreak of enthusiasm
that rivaled anything since the nomina
tion. Major M Klnley said:
"Mr. Kherhart und my fellow cit

your devotion to the great principles
of the Republican party.

tion of the Republican party to so keep
und maintain It forever. (Cheers). It
Is the duty of the jieople of this country
to stand unitedly aguinst every effort
to degrude our currency or debase our
credit. (Cries of 'they will.') They
must unite now. as they huve always
united In the (last, in every great crisis
of our country's history. When the
country seemed wildly bent on infla
tion preceding the resumption of
ecle payments., the solier sense of
American people without regard to
party united and stemmed that threat
ened tide of Irredeemable paer money
und repudiation, and placed and kept
the nation on the rock of public honor,
sound finance and honest currency.
"You huve rightly stated, sir. that
the Republican inty not only believes
in sound money and the highest pub
lic faith und honor on the part of the
government of the 'lilted States to ull
its creditors, but also that It believes
In a tariff which, while raising money
enough to conduct the gixverninent
economically administered, will serve
the highest and best Interests of Amer
ican labor, American agriculture,
Aniericnn commerce nnd American cit
izenship. (Great applause.) Some of
our political opponents are given to
saying that the tariff question Is set
tled. If we are nut wrong In Inter
preting their meaning, we think they
are right (laughter) and thank them
for the confession. (Applause.) We
believe lliut the tariff question Is set
tledsettled in 'the minds and hearts
of the American people and settled on
the side of protection (tremendous
cheering), but. however firmly it may
be settled In the public mind, it is not
yet settled In public law. Whut is In
the hearts and consciences of the peo
ple touching uny public question is not
effective until it Is written in public
statute, and this can only be done
through the exercise of the elective
franchise In the choice of a congress of
the I'nlted States, which makes our
public laws. No one, I take it. will re
gard the present tariff law as a last
and final settlement of the question.
Whatever may be our differences about
the economic principle upon which tar
iff legislation should be made all agrc
that the present tariff law Is a failure
even as a revenue measure.
PEOPLE NOT SATISFIED.
"So without discussing the principle
of free trade or protection everybody
must appreciate that no law Is a set
tlement which creates every month a
deficiency In the public- treasury. (Loud
applause nnd cheers.) The people of
this country are not satislied until a
public law shall express the public
will In a statute which will provide
adequate revenues for the needs of the
government, full security for Its credit
and ample protection to the labor, cap
ital and energy of the American peo
"I thank you. my fellow citizens, for
this friendly call, and I assure you that
It will give me pleasure to meet each
and every one of you personally. (Tre
mendous applause and cheering.)
