Rahway, N. J., October 13. What
was one of the nearest approaches to
a frightful accident in the annals of
railroading occurred here this morning
to tbe fast Philadelphia ei press train
on tbe Pennsylvania railroad, due here
at 11:13 p.m. The train is made up of
two combination parlor cars and three
coaches, and runs at a high, rate of
speed. It passed the main depot here
today four minutes late, running at the
high rate of sixty miles an hour. Tbe

the long bridge east of Ma(in street,
jumped the track, and was foll6wed by
five cars. The orash, as the whole train
left the track, was terrific, and was

quarter of mile west of where the acci

ties for two hundred feet, when the! p
couplings broke between the cars, and , v
each oar took a shoot in different direc I W eLLC12.CZ,
tions, tearing up the rails and ties and1
digging into the stone-ballast roadbed.
There are four tracks at this point, and
the cars were twisted around in such a
way as to completely wreck the roadbed
and the cars themselves.
When the cars had finally been stop
ped the passengers, who were naturally
badly frightened, came out of the
wrecked cars, unable to comprehend
what had happened. The most remark

was running at sixty miles an hour the aH good work an a
