i f -: VOL. III. NO. 149. SALISBURY, N. C, MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 22, 1898. 10 Cents Per Week WASHOUTS OW SOUTHERN. Freight Train Goes Into One at Gas tonia There Were Others. There was a' washout on the Southern at Gaston ia Friday night and as a result traffic was somewhat delayed Saturday. No. 36, the north boun1 fast mail, was several hours' late. No. 74, fast freight coming north went.into the. washout, about thirteen cars iroing down. We learn that a white ramp on the train was hurt hut no one killed. The second section of the South ern's fast freight train, No. 73, on its way south ran into a washout at a branch two miles from Con cord early " yesterday morning. . The engine and two 'cars cleared the washout, when the track swayed down, breaking the coupling be tween the second and third cars from the engine and dividing the .train into two parts. As the col ored fireman felt the track giving away, he jumped from the engine, and escaped unhurt. The engi neer held on to the throttle and was knocked against the side Of his cab, sustaining slight bruises about the head. , . , Neither the engine nor the cars composing the train went down. This morning's Charlotte Observer says the injury to the track proved, upon examination to be such that it could be easily and quickly re paired and the cars all put back on the track in running condition. So the wrecking train, which was making its way from Gastonia, was telegraphed for, and started immediately to the scene of the trouble. The wrecking train proceeded cautiously from Charlotte toward Concord and met with no serious obstruction until it reached a long till near Coddle Creek, about three miles south of Concord, and one mile from the washout mentioned above when another washout was discovered which , proved to be about 80 feet long and GO feet deep. Rocks weighing more than a ton were carried down the ravine some 200 yards. This washout, being much more serious than the one nearer Concord, was (set to work on first. As a result of these washouts, all passenger trains over the Southern, both from the North and the South, have been running by way of Statesville since yester day morning. An extra passen ger and mail train was operated between Salisbury and Concord yesterday and today. It was thought that the track would be repaired so trains could be running between Salisbury and Charlotte this afternoon.- Miss Johnson Married. ' Announcement has been received of the marriage of Miss S. Alice Johnson to Mr. Henry Clay Pstep which was solemnized on Thursday ISth. Miss- Johnson is a sister of Mr. H. I vey Johnson, of the Southern, and has a number ofi friends in. Salisbury. She has for the past two years been iu a train ing school for nurses in Philadel phia.
