The t rest I'? where the accident oe
rurre l is .".cii feet Ions and is located
on a sharp curve. Engineer Hroady
was a new man on that division of
Hie Southern, and It is said he. came
to the curve at a very high rate of
The cuisine had gone only about 50
(en on the trestle when it sprang
from the track, carrying with it four
mail cars and an express car. The
trestle, a wooden structure, also gave
way for a space of 50 feet.
At the foot of the trestle la a shallow
Stream, with a rocky bottom. Striking
this, the engine and cars were reduced
to a mass of twisted Iron and steel and
pieces of toithtered wood. As the
cars 'went down they touched the
sides of the Riverside Cotton Mill,
which Is very close to the trestle.
All the dead men were killed In
stantly, it Is thought, and all were
preatly mutilated. The skin and hair
on the engineer and fireman were torn
off by the Impact of the steam engine.
Several thousand people were soon
at the scene of the wreck. No one
on any of the cars had made an effort
to jump, and the b. dies of all those
killed were found in fte wreckage of
the different cars to which they be
longed. Ladies who drove out to the
wreck from Danville fainted at' the
sight of the bodies, some of which
were cm - lied to a Kliastly degree. It
seemed miraculous that any one should
have escaped, for each car falling
with tin1 engine hounded from It and
completely collapsed after striking the
rnrks at the foot of tlio trestle. All
Til.' r;!css m:i 1 1 r,r in the oppress car
was practically destroyed, except six
crates full of canary birds. None of the
birds was hurt, though the crates were
in the thickest or the debris. All un
c.licial opinions thr.t. have been ascer
tained airree lti giving only one cause
for the wreck the high speed of the
train on the sharp curve. Train No.
f'7 was n.nninL' about an hour behind
time, it is thought that the engineer,
being unfamiliar wiih the road, did
lint take into consideration the dan
ger ef coming on the curve with such
The n.ail hags in all the mail cars
were broken open amj the letters and
packages were scattered, but It is be

appeared in tho wreckage shortly af

a member of the anthracite arbitra
