VWENTY-EIGHT LIVES LOST. Six Cars Plunge to the Bottom of the Hudson River, ENGINEMEN DIE AT THEIR POS 1. ICoth Engineer niul Firemen Met He rote Death Nearly All Passensrers Were, Asleep at the Time of the Ac clelent The Mlniciilous llreaklng of u Coupling Saves Three Sleeping Cars From Following the, Others Several Passe ners IJoscuod From the Tops of Float Int; Cars statements of Sur vivors of the Wreck. 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 wounded in. 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 son river. 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 W. H, C. Myers, of Tie fae timila denature ot Is OS ever? 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 are drowning. "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 river. "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 roadbed. 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. Treasure In the Wreck. The Americ an Express company had a number of its agents at the seen. 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 cials said that all would be recovered, as the valuables were in a stationary pa fe attached to the car. Among the railroad men it is generally Relieved that A. C. McKay, of Har lem, private secretary to Oenera! Su 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. The known dead are: Thomas Reilly, nf St. Louis; Wong Gim, Chinaman; K. A. Green, 25. Chicago: A. G. McKay, private secretary to General Superin tendent Van Ktten; W. H. G. Meyers, Tremont, N.

THE ITUATI0N NOW CRITICAL Accor'. Inir to the Views of Spanish New-papers, Which l'uanImouly Mipport the Government's Attitude-. Proposed Jlome IJnle for Cuba. 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. The note ends with the statement that "Spain will not admit the right of any foreign power to interfere in any of her affair's." There is no doubt that the govern- merit's reply feeling of the at length on material and wiil represent the deep nation. The note dwells 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 cess of the new home rule policy and the speedy pacification of Cuba chiei'.y depend upon the conduct of the United States." 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 rights." 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 governor general. 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. Captain Lovorl mr Ad ;ti I Is Itrutallty. 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 cusing witnesses' statements. He 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 dier and pricked him with his sword. None of this treatment. Captain Lover ing said, had injured Hammond in the least, as was proven by the surgeons' report, and the methods used were in his opinion necessary for the discipline of the army. Wookod on a I'ccf.

It looks daik for him. and I do not see how he can e::; e t to escape from the awful punishment that awaits those who take human life, after deliberation and in fi cold blooded, cowardly man ner. 1 do not want to see the young man convicted, if there is the slightest reason to believe that he is not guilty, which 1 ease a has not yet asserted it self."
