minton and an extra freight train col
lided in a cut one mile west of Ham

is certainly due to the negligence of
the operator at either Rockingham or
Hamlet.

DETAILS TERRIBLE WRECK.
An Eye-Witness Tells of the Scenes
Last Night and This Morning.
Hamlet, July 23. —Two miles west
of this place, in a deep cut, on a
sharp curve, one of the most disas
trous wrecks in the history of rail
rcr.ding in North Carolina occurred
yesterday evening between the hours
qi' seven and eight o'clock.
Vhe wreck was due to a head-on
collision between passenger train Wo.
44 castbouud and an extra freignc
running as first section of No. 39,
which is the westbound passenger
traiji that is due to reach Charlotte
at 10:45 o'clock at night.
So far the death list numbers 21.
In luded in this number are En
gineer Frank Lewis and Expressman
H. S. Bird. The other 19 were ne
groes who occupied seats in what is
known as the "Jim Crow" car which
waa next to the express and baggage
car and the second car in the train's
ijii'.;oup.
..'o. 44 which is the afternoon train
which left Charlotte at 5 o clocic
yesterday afternoon was running an
hcv.r late when it reached Wades
boro. This delay was caused by sev
eral minor troubles that the train en
countered in its run of 66 miles be
tween Charlotte and Wadesboro.
After leaving Wadesboro Engineer
Frank Lewis turned on full steam i-.nd
bade his steed go her limit.
At Rockingham the puffing engine
stopped for a moment's rest and as
Engineer Lewis opened the throttle
the bounded forth like a frightened
ceer to the eastward.
Five minutes after the train pulled
out of Rockingham the engine of
■No. 44 darted into a deep curve and
swiftly passed up to what is known
as one of the sharpest curves on the
fceaboard's system.
Before the brave engineer of No.
44 knew what was ahead of him, the
headlight of the extra freight darted
from around the opposite end of the
curve. There was a terrible crash—
a fearful hissing of steam and the
two ponderous steeds reared straight
rp by the force of the collision.
During the few minutes that fol
lowed in which the escaping steam
and the roar caused by the collision,
there could be ■ heard the wailss of
the dying and those more fortunate.
As quickly as possible Conductor
Bowen and those who had escaped
from the terrible collision, went for
ward to where the engines were
standing in an upright position and
called for Engineer Lewis. There
was no answer to this call for the
hand that guided the fast flying pas
senger engine, while still holding to
the throttle of his engine, was stilled
by death. .Through the mist of es
caping steam and the pile of iron
and steel, could be seen a portion of
the brave engineer's body as it was
being roasted alive by the _ boiling
flood of water that was pouring from
the engine boiler.
Wedged in between the wreckage
of the baggage car and that of the
Jim Crow car could be seen the
mangled remains of Expressman H.
S. Bird. He must have met an in-'
stant death as ponderous pieces of
iron and wood held his body in tight
embrace.
The scene where the Jim Crow car
and the baggage and express car
were telescoped, was one of horror
and intense suffering. There, in the
mangled mass of flesh and blood,
were 19 torn and dismembered bodies
cf negroes who were ushered into
death without a moments warning.
Their bodies were piled, one upon an
other, in a frightful mass and now
r.nd then one could hear the dying
wails of a lost soul.
As the accident took place at night
fall and as there were few if any
lights available, the scene was one
of weirdness as well as horror. The
ones aboard the train who escaped
injury did all that was possible to re
lieve the dying and wounded, but
their efforts were curtailed by the
irany disadvantages incident to the
wreck.
By 9 o'clock a wrecking crew from
Hamlet reached the scene and as
last as possible the injured were
taken from their perilous situation.
All through the weary hours or the
right men and even women worked
to relieve the suffering and care for
the dying. The bodies of the dead
were taken out one by one and the
lifeless forms were laid beside the
track until preparations could be
made to transfer them to Rocking
ham.
Editor S. T. Ashe, of the Wilming
ton Messenger, was a passenger on
the ill-fated train. He had been to
Wadesboro to spend the Sabbath
v\ ith relatives and friends of his boy
hood. He occupied a seat in the
first class coach which was the last
car in the train's makeup. The force
of the colision threw him forward but
lortunately he escaped with only
s'ight bruises.
To your correspondent this morn
ing the Wilmington editor gave a
graphic description of one of the
State's most direful catastrophes.
He says that the scene at the time of
the wreck and just following beggars
description. As soon as the trains
c?me to their awful standstill, he
went forward and what met his gaze
was horrible in the extreme. He
heard the cries of the dying and the
pitiful screams of the unfortunate be
ings who were pinioned beneath
weights of steel and iron. He join
ed the party of rescuers and did all
in his power to relieve suffering.
Mr. Ashe spent the night at Ham
let and early this morning went back
to the scene of the wreck. When he
si rived at the spot he found that iy
bodies had been removed from the
debris and that two bodies, both ne
gro men, were still beneath the
wreckage.
In- describing the position of the
two engines, Mr. Ashe says that both
remained in an upright position this
morning. The heavy iron caps
toilers were embedded into each
other and the two, once proud steeds,
were a mass of broken and twisted
iron and steel.
The second class coach had left the
rails but was still on the cross ties.
This was true of the first class coach
which was the rear car. The Jim
Crow car and the baggage and ex
press cars were matted together in a
tangled mass and there is little left
of either. The Jim Crow car tele
scoped, the baggage and express car
and crushed the latter as if it had
Leen an egg shell. In this mass of
wood and iron, two cars next to the
engine of the freight train were
thrown and their contents was piled
high.
Editor Ashe states that the fire
man of the freight train, says that a
few minutes before the collision took
place he saw the reflection of the
electric headlight of No. 44. He went
ever to the engineer's side and told
h:m to look. The engineer looked
und the next moment he reversed
his engine and with a signal to the
fireman to jump, he leaped out into
ihe darkness.
This explains why both the engi
neer and the fireman of the freight
train saved their lives.
THE PRESS ACCOUNT.
Operator at Rockingham Has Been
Truthful and Careful Employe.
Raleigh, July 23.—The collision be
tween the freight train and the regu
lar mail train on the Seaboard Air
Line at 8 o'clock last night, three
miles west of Hamlet resulted in the
death e>f four trainmen and 16 others.
The injured number 24.
The bodies of the dead are being
prepared for burial at Hamlet and
Rockingham while the injured have
been removed to Charlotte and placed
in a hospital there.
The wreck was due to failure of the
regular pasenger train to receive or
ders at Rockingham. The freight was
an extra southbound from Raleigh to
Monroe. It was manned by Conduc
tor Hunter and Engineer Bundy of this
city. Conductor Hunter is not reported
hurt and Engineer Bundy is verv
slightly injured.
The mail train was No. 44 running
from Charlotte to Wilmington. This
train was in charge of Conductor John
D. Bowen, who was slightly hurt. En
gineer Frank Lewis of Hamlet, Fire-'
man Thomas Hill, of Hamlet, Bag
gage Master H. S. Byrd of Wilming
ton, and Porter Jack Bogan, of Wades
boro, of this ill fated train, were kill
ed.
The baggage car and second class
coach on the passenger train were de
molished and eight of the cars of the
freight train were derailed, some of
them being piled on other cars and
crushed to pieces.
Why the order was not given to the
passenger train at Rockingham is not
known and will be investigated by the
superintendent of the road.
It is said that the operator at Rock
ingham is an experienced man and has
been a faithful and careful employe of
the company for several years.
In Charlotte Hospital.
Charlotte News 23d.
The scene at the Good Samaritan
Hospital this morning was pitiful be
yond all description.
The terrible wreck between Hamlet
and Rockingham in its results as seen
here, must have been past all descrip
tion.
Twenty-nine prostrate and bleeding
forms were scattered about the roomA
of the hospital up stairs and down
stairs, and many were moaning and
crying while others seemed to regard
their fate with stoical indifference;
and with eyes from which all expres
sion had gone, they waited for their
turn on the operating table, where
half a dozen white physicians labor
ed almost beyond endurance, to be
as quick as possible in rendering
aid.
Every man of them had his nerve
however, was thus enabled to look
all the more carefully after the wants
of the injured.
There are 28 in the Good Samaritan
Hospital, and several of these will
probably die. Their injjuries are hard
to describe. One heavy built woman
suffered terribly with her body split
well nigh half in two. The other
women were so badly bruised and
broken that they seemed like dead
bodies except for an occasional moan,
and their cries as they were moved
to the operating table. The physicians
kept two tables busy for three hours
and worked with heroic endurance to
bring relief to the injured.
Some of the injured were too bad
ly hurt to speak or tell their names
and the doctors nor anyone else were
unable to identify these.
There are two women who are
frightfully injured, bruised and having
legs and arms broken, that will have
a hard fight for life.
At Hovis* undertaking establish
ment there is the dead body of a col
ored woman 30 years of agt, whose
end came after the train had left Mon
roe. The body was still warm when
it reached Charlotte. Scores of peo
ple have looked ?.t the body but have
been unable to identify her.
Being in the coach for colored peo
ple, nearest the engine, the negroes
caught the brunt of the awful catas
trophe, and scarce a passenger in this
ill-fated car escaped injury.
Those who were brought here to
day and carried to the hospital, and
who were able to give their names are
as follows:

Returning From Meeting.
/A sad feature connected with the
wreck is the fact that mpst of the
dead and injured negroes were return
ing from a big meeting tbat was neld
Sunday in Rockingham. Most of the
negroes were hard working, indus
trious colored people. Yet another
peculiar fact was that many of the
men were returning from their homes
up the road to their work on a hospital
building.
The physicians have been unable to
learn the names of several of those
in the hospital, who are so near dead
that they cannot give any information
about themselves.
The nurses and those in charge of
the Good Samaritan Hospital worked
faithfully to care for the wounded,
and those who could eat, were quick
ly served with hot coffee, and made
as comfortable as possible.
It required the entire morning to get
all of the wounds dressed, and the doz
ens of broken limbs set. Several col
ored ministers came to the hospital
and worked with the nurses.
Rosa Mcßeth, one of the negro
women at the hospital was in a dying
condition when The News went to
press.
Many Hacks Brought Into Service.
To remove the injured from the
Seaboard depot this morning required
several hacks and carriages, two trans
fer wagons, the ambulance and a bag
gage wagon. These vehicles made
several trips to the Good Samaritan
Hospital before all the injured were
taken there. In the big transfer wag
on on one trip were six injured men.
Woman Dies on Reaching Charlotte.
One of the victims of the wreck, a
negro woman died while the train
bearing the injured was en route to
Charlotte. Judging from the wounds
the woman had received there was no
hope for her recovery.
The lower limbs, both legs and
thighs, were crushed and broken in a
frightful manner; also one arm. The
body was removed to the undertaking
parlors of Z. n.. Hovis and Company.
Her identity is not known. A large
number of Charlotte negroes were per
mitted to view the remains but none
of these knew her face.

on all Hands.
St. Petersburg, July 20. —Extreme
nervousness .and ■ excitement prevail
among all classes owing to fear that
the action of the Lower House of
Parliament in adopting the address to
the people may be the signal for coup
de 'etat against the Parliament. It
is rumored the step has been decided
upon and the Strana says imperial
ukase ordering a dissolution of Parlia

The feeling of general alarm is in
creased by the fact that all night Ion?

Krasnoyo-Sclo.
Even if the present crisis passed
without surrender to the government
things are almost sure to drift from
bad to worse and in the end the gov

OPENING OF GREAT
PEACE CONFERENCE
The 14th Annual Conference of the
Inter-Parliamentary Union Op
ens. Great Excitement Over
Retirement of Members of Rus
sian Parliament,
London, July 23—The fourteenth
annual conference of the Inter-Parlia
mentary Union was opened in the roy
al gallery of the palce of Westminster.
The adherents of international peace
from all the parliaments of Europe as
well as several of those of the western
hemisphere were present, but hardly
had the conference opened when,
amidst a scene of considerable excite
ment Professor Maxim Kovalevsky,
member of the lower house of the Rus
sian Parliament, announced that he
and his colleagues, representing until
yesterday the youngest parliament in
the world were obliged to withdraw in
consequence of the dissolution of the
body they were officially appointed to
represent.
There were abuot 500 delegates pres
ent the American eepresentation being
represented by Congressman Richard
Bartholde, while WilliamJ. Bryan occu
pied a seat on the platform.
Load Wearsdale (Sir Philip Stan
hope), opened the Congress, his pre
liminary sentences of welcome being
specially addressed to the Russian del
egates who rose in a body, and, turn
ing toward the delegation of the late
Parliament, cheered them to the echo.
Lord Weardale incidentally mention
ed President Roosevelt as having been
associated with the work of peace. Pre
mier Campbell-Bannerman in reply, re
minded his hearers that King Edward
had always been a great advocate of
peace. The British government, he
said, was in entire sympathy the
object of the conference.
The Premier especially greeted the
members of the Russian Parliament
present and also paid a tribute to Em
peror Nicholas who had done so much
toward the enhancement of the ideas
of peace. It could, he thought, be safe
ly aserted that the Russian Parilament,
although dissolved was sure to again
come into existence. Then the Pre
mier in a sudden access of enthusiasm,
shouted "La Douma Est Morte, Vive'
La Douma." (The Russian Parilament
is dead, long live the Russian Parlia
ment.) The delegates rose to their
feet and the storms of applause con
tinued for a couple of minutes.
MEN WERE REINSTATED
The Strike of the Car Men Ended
When Seven Men Were Reinstated.
Princeton, lud., July 21. —The strike
of the car men of the Louisville. St.
The receipts at the local cotton
way. over the re-instatement of seven
men, has ended. All the men were rein
stated, although not at this city. The
strike lasted two weeks and involved
200 men.
Wants Extra Session.
Richmond, July 23. —Governor
Swanson has requested the president
oi the Supreme Court of Appeals to
convene an extra session that the tri
bunal may dispose of the insurance
commission case, the corporation
commission having declined to per
mit Commissioner Dutton to qualify
after he had been elected by the
general assembly, the commission
holding that the right of appoint
ment was voted in the commission.
An editor whose identity has unfor
tunately been lost makes this con
fession: "Senator Elkins told the
bankers that a rich man never whis
tles or sings while a poor man always
does. We do not whistle or sing, not
that we are rich, but because, damn
it ,we can't."
