Garrisons, N. Y., Oct. 23. From the
sleep that means refreshment and rest
to the eternal sleep that knows no
waking plunged in the twinkling of
an eye yesterday morning 2S souls
men, women and children. Into the
slimy bed of the Hudson river a train,
laden with slumbering humanitv,
plunged, dragging through the waters
the helpless passengers. There was
nothing to presage the terrible acci
dent which so suddenly deprived these
unfortunate of lives. The New York
Central train left Buffalo Saturday
night and had progressed for nearly
nine-tenths of the distance towards its
destination. The engineer and his fire
men had just noted the gray dawn
breaking in the east, and the light
streak of red betokening the sun's ap
pearance, when the gnat engine went
Into the depths of the river. Neither
enginter mr fireman will ever tell the
story of that terrible moment, for with
his hand upon the throttle the en
gineer plunged with his engine to the
river bottom, and the fireman, too, was
at his post. I'.eliind them came the
express car, the combination ear and
the sleepers, and these piled on top
of the engine.
It is known that it was a tritle foggy,
and that the track was not visible, but
if there was any break in the lines of
steel it must have been a very recent
happening, for only an hour before
there had passed over it a heavy pas
senger train, laden with human freight.
As the train plunged over the em
bankment the coupling that held the
last three of the six sleepers broke, an 1
they miraculously remained on the
broken track. In that way some GO
lives were saved.
Of eye witnesses there were none ex
cept the crew of a tugboat passing
with a tow. They saw the train with
its lights as it came dashing about the
curves, and then saw the greater part
of it go into the river. Some of the
cars with closed windows lloated. and
the tug, whistling for help, cast off its
hawser and started to the rescue.
Porter O.Ivos the Alarm.
A porter jumped from one of the eary
that remained on the track and ran into
the yard of Augustus Kah's house,
near which the accident occurred, and
stood screaming for help, and moan
ing: "The train is in the river and
all our passengers are drowned."
In a few minutes Kah had dressed
himself, and getting a boat rowed with
the porter to the scene. As they turn
ed a point in the bank they came upon
the express car and the combination
car iloating about I'D feet from shore,
but sinking every minute. One man
was taken from the top of the car, and
efforts were made to rescue those in
side. A few were gotten out, the pas
sengers left upon the track making a
human bridge to the shore to take the
The day coach and smoker had gone
down in the deeper water, and rescue
was impossible. in tne latter coacn
the conditions must have been horrible.
The car turned completely over, and
the passenger end of it was in the deep
water, while the baggage end stood up
towards the surface. The men in that
lower end must have fought like fields
for a brief period, for the bodies when
taken out were a mass of wounds.
The wrecked train was known as the
state express. It left Buffalo at
7 o'clock Saturday night and was due
in New York at 7 o'clock yesterday
morning. The train consisted of one ex
press car, one composite baggage and
smoking car, one day coach and six
sleepers, l'oughkeepsie was the last
stopping place of the train before the
disaster, at r:l a. m.
At this time there were on the
smoker, in addition to the baggage
man, Herman Acker, of Peekskill, who
was in his compartment, eight China
men en route from Canadian border to
New York, and a middle aged man,
supposed to be Thomas Iteilly, of St.
V)uis. All of these, excepting the hsr
gagemaster, perished. The day coach
contained IS or L'rt passengers, many of
whom we re women and children. How
many of these escaped is not known,
but at least 12 were drowned or killed
in this car.
Mosf of the rassenirers Wore Asleep.
When the acc ident happened most of
Ihe passengers were aslee p, those in the
sleepeis being in their berths, while the
occupants of the coach and smoker
were for the mcst part doubled up in
their seats. Just how the train met its
awful fate will never be fully known,
for the men who first felt the danger,
Knglneer John Foyle and Fireman John
Tompkins, lie dead in the cab of their
locomotive at the bottom of the Hud
Conductor Parish, who was in charge
of the train, and who was making up
his report in one of the cars when the
crash came, was rendered unconscious
by a blow on the head. When he re
covered he was three seats ahead of
the one in which he had been sitting.
One of the occupants of the coach
who escaped with his life was Frank
J. Pegan. a wood finisher, of New
York. His left eye was cut by broken
glass and his body was slightly bruised.
Mr. Degan made this statement:
"With inv frien.il. W. H, C. Myers, of
Passaic, N. j., who was killed in the
tar from which 1 escaped. I had been
to l'oughkeepsie. We boarded the train
at that place and took a seat in the
coach. Three other people got on at
l'oughkeepsie. One was a woman and
the two others were men, one of whom
looked like a railroad employe. As
near as I can judge there were IS peo
ple in the coach, most of them being
women and children, and nearly all
were asleep. Myers and I -sat in the
middle of the car. When the crash
fame the car gave a great lurch, ami
rolled over on its side. The water
rushed in and almost instantly the
lights went out. 1 knew we -were in
the river, and the car seemed to plough
through the water for some time after
it was submerged.
"The car tilted over on one side, and
1 managed to reach the fanlight over
head and cling to it until help came.
Passengers Drowned Uke Hats.
"I heard people in the back part of
the car groaning as if they were pinned
fast. It was so dark that I could see
no one, and I think the passengers
must have been drowned like rats.
After a while, it seemed an age, 1 heard
people on top of the car and an ax
crushed through the roof. Soon they
had a hole cut in the roof and pulled
me out through it. A man and a boy
(father and son) were also rescued in
the same way. but I know of no other
occupants of the coach escaping."
Augustus Kah, a (lerman living near
the scene of the wreck, gives this de
scription: "It was about five minutes before C
when I was awakened by some one in
my yard calling for help. Looking out
of my window I saw a sleeping ear
porter who shouted: "For Gods sake
man, if you own a boat, come cpuickly.
Our train is in the river and people
"I dressed myself and accompanied
by the porter got into my rowboat and
rowed around the curve to where the
train was in the river. When we
leached the cars, which were sub
merged nearly to their roofs, the en
gine being entirely out of sight, the
crews of the tugboat were making ef
forts to save the passengers. The first
man I saw them take out was, I think,
the agent of the express car. The first
persons we succeeded in rescuing wen
two Chinamen, who were sitting on the
roof of the smoker. One had his arm
broken. We put them ashore and then
took three more persons off the top
of another car. At the same time people
in their underclothes were being taken
cut of the sleeping cars by the crews of
tht several tugs. One man on shore,
with an arm cut off, was dying, and we
made his last moments as comfortable
as possible. I w ant to say that the por
ters, although frightened, showed great
bravery and saved many lives."
Five men were rescued from the top
of a iloating car a few minutes after
the accident. They were put on a train
ami taken to Peekskill. about ten miles
down the road. They were admitted to
the Helping Hand hospital, where their
wounds were dressed. Of the five three
were Chinamen, and none were fatally
injured. The Americans were: John K. Kyan
of Jersey City. "0 years old. badly
lacerated hand, shoulder and knee:
Clarence Morgan of Aurora, N. Y., aged
26, broken shoulder. The three China
men were suffering from scalp wounds.
Kscaped From Float Inir Cars.
Morgan escaped from a Iloating car
through a broken pam-1 and swam
ashore. Though badly hurt, he helped
another passenger out.
V. S. Lang ford, of Bayonne, N. J.,
was in one of the last coaches which
remained on the track. He secured an I
ax and chopping out a pannel of one of 1
the partly submerged cars helped to
rescue four people.
Cieneral Manager Toucey says: "The
accident was caused by the bed of tpe
railroad being washed out in some in
explicable manner. In this undermined
condition the track sank as soon as the
weight of the train was put on it, and
the embankment giving away the train
was of course precipitated into the
"Such conditions as this we have never
looked for. Trains have been running
over this spot for years and years with
out accident or difficulty of any kind,
and this piece of track was c onsidered
as good as any seion of the railroad.
Not only was the-Viadbed the hardest
kind of an embankment, but it was
strengthened by a retaining water wall
of solid masonry three feet thick."
Other railroad officials were of the
opinion that a quicksand foundation
of some kind below the water line was
responsible for the giving way of the
Before 10 o'clock a large number of !
curious spec tators had gathered at the
scene, coming from the nearby towns j
and villages by trains, wagons, bicycles
and boats. The number of morbidly
curious steadly increased as the day
wore on. and excursion boats even
came from places far up and down the
river, all loaded down to the water's
edge, until at mid-afternoon there were
fully 10,000 about the wreck, it re
quired the utmost exertion on the part
of Chief Humphrey, of the railroad po
lice, and his force of detectives to hold
these people far enough in check to
allow the railroad men to proceed with
their work. Chief Humphrey did good
work in recovering valuables, and if
there were any thieves about they got
no opportunity to ply their trade.

early in the day, but they were power
less to do anything, as no attempt was
made to raise their car. It was said
that his car contained thousands of
dollars worth of valuales, but the ofli

as the valuables were in a stationary

Among the railroad men it is generally
Relieved that A. C. McKay, of Har

perintendent Van Ktten. had lost his
life in the wreck. He was a passenger
on the train, and was last seen at Al
bany, where it was said he boarded
the locomotive to ride with the en
gineer. If that is true he sharad the
fate of the engineer and fireman.

Madrid, Oct. 25. In the special note
to United States Minister Woodford,
the government declares that Spain has
done all in her power to end the war in
Cuba and cites many sacrifices which
have been made by the nation, the
number of troops sent to Cuba and the
reforms which are to be carried out in
the island, which are fully described.

filibustering and "other
moral assistance which
has chiefly contributed to the rise and
duration of the rebellion, and which in
turn has damaged American interests."
It clearly intimates that Spain can
not continue the "forbearance shown
by Senor Canovas eel Castillo and the
Duke of Tetuan during the past two
years," and that she now c alls upon the
American government to "fulfill more
strictly in the future the rules of
international law," because "the suc

the speedy pacification of Cuba chiei'.y
depend upon the conduct of the United
The Spanish press unanimously sup
ports the attitude of the government,
which it calls eminently sober and dig
nified, but the impression is that the
controversy with the United States has
leached a c ritical stage which may be
the prelude to a rupture. Three mem
bers of the cabinet who were inter
viewed contended that Spnin has the
right, after her tremendous sacrifices in
Cuba, to demand the observance of in
ternational neutrality by other nations.
One of them added: "The gordian knot
is the United States, without whose
help the rebellion would long ago have
been suppressed. We do not want war,
but every European nation will ap
prove our defence, of our international
A member of the cabinet declares
that the government intends to give
Cuba complete local government, with
universal suffrage to elect municipal
and provincial councils, and an insular
parliament. The latter will be com
posed of upper and lower chambers,
having entire control of taxation and
tariff. The vespons.ihl ? government will
be composed of live ministers, whose
councils will be presided over by the
Senators and deputies for Cuba will
continue to sit in the Spanish eortes,
and the imperial government will still
control the army, navy, police, tri
bunals and foreign affairs of the col
ony, exactly as the program of the au
tonomists demanded. The government
has received promise of the support of
both the autonomists in Cuba and of
those re siding in France and the United
States, and expects no opposition from
the other colonial parties.

Chicago, (Jet. "I!. In the inquiry at
Fort Sheridan regarding the brutal
treatment of Private Hammond by the
order of Captain Lovering the captain
made no attempt to deny any of the ac

admitted that by his orders Private
Hammond had been dragged from the
guardhouse by his heels, and he also
admitted that he had struck the sol

None of this treatment. Captain Lover

least, as was proven by the surgeons'
report, and the methods used were in
his opinion necessary for the discipline
