SERIOUS DISASTER ON THE ROCK murderers.
'SLAND NEAR ARMOUR-
Tlie 1'iutl Daily Happening*.
Kansas City, Mo., Oct 23.—a disas-
tr us wreck occurred at 7:20 o'clock on
the Union Pacific track, one mile and a
half west of ArmourJalc. in which eight
persons were injured, and the engineer of
the Rock Island passenger train fatally.
The Rock Island uses the Union Pacific
tracks into the city. An east bound Rock
island freight, which leaves the depot
sometime before the Union Pacific passen-
ger train, was delayed at the scene of thu
wreck, and, owing to a very heavy fop,
placed torpedoes on the track to warn the
following train. The passenger en-.ineer
stopped his train, and before a flagman
could oe sent back to warn the east bound
Rock island passenger train, wbl.-h was
following the Union Pacific train, the
Rock Island train crashed into the rear
Pullman sleeping car, Wathena, of the
Tnion Pacific train. The Rock Island
engine and the tlvfper were completely
wrecked, and the engineer buried under a
mass of debris. The lircm.tn probably
saved his life by jumping.
The trains were both behind time and
it is claimed that the Rock Island train
was i mining much faster than the six
mile per hour limit within the corporation.
The loss is estimated at not less than cti0.-
The following are tho injured: Pat
Cullen. the Rock Island engineer cannot
live; his home is at Topeka, and he will
leave a wife and two children: John Cuff,
the Rock Island fireman, fiartured jaw
and severe bruises: Edward .Jack on

Brbmx, Oct 24.—Another tragedy has
been added to the list of horrors which
have recetly occurred in Berlin and its
vicinity. To-day the community was
shocked by the discovery of the fiendish
work of a poisoner, which is almost with-
out parallel in the history of crime here.
A retired farmer panted <«ast gave his
children some sweatmeata in which he
had previously placed a quantity of poison.
He then partook of the poisoned confec-
tion himself. After suffering great agony
for some time, the murderer and three of
the children were relieved by death from
their sufferings. Two others of the chil-
dren, who also ate of the sweetmeats, are
in a dyin ; condition, and the phys cians
say there is no possible chance of saving
them. No reason is knovn for the crime,

lision occurred at 4:40 on the Cincinnati I mate of the Soldiers' home, named Foster,
Southern railway, in a tunnel a quarter of
a mile north of Sloan's Valley station.
The trains involved were freight No. 22,
northbound, and passenger No. 6, south-
bound. No. 5 leaves Cincinnati at 8:80
p. in., and another passenger train leaves
Cincinnati an hour earlier. Both of these
were held at Somerset, Ky., two hours or
more on account of a fteight wreck, which
occurred south of that place last night.
When the track was clear, tho foremost
Cincinnati train started out from Somer-
set first, met and passed safely a north-
bound train. When at a safe distance be-
hind it, the fated No. s started out.
Fre ght *.rain No. 22, north bound, was
sidetracked at Sloan's Valley. When tho
first Cincinnati train passed south, the
appeared to overlook
the fact that No. 8 was to follow, and they
pulled out and started northward. Less
than a quarter of a mile away they en-
tered a tunnel which is one-siqth of a mile
long, the most hopeless place that train-
men ever met death. The engines of the
two trains dashed into each other, and
the cars following jammed into each other
in a mass. 'I hen came tho added horror
No description of the scene has yet been
made. Only the bare results have been
telegraphed to tho officials of the road
berc- l These are that Firemen Gow and
Welch, Rrakemen John E. Montgomery,
Express Messenger Edward Rotfner and a
mail agent, were killed; Engineers Tay-
lor of the passenger train, and Pimlott of
the freight train, were badly burned, and
the baggage master was injured. No pas-
sengers were killed. If any were injured
the names have not yet been ascertained.
Ihe burning of the trnins in a tunnel
renders it impossible to clear the track as
easily a • it could be done in open grouud

There were two mail ogents on the
train, J. F. Gayle tnd C. F. Doegan*
which one of them is killed is not vet
known. Ed Koffner, the messenger of ihe
United States Express company, w ho was
killed, is a married men, living at konlull.
near this city.
1 he initial cause of the collision was a
wreck which occurred last night at Elihu
station, two miles below Somerset. A
mixed train was stopped to leave a car
and had not yet got into motion, when a
freight came up in the rear and struck the
rear car, causing a serious wreck. Mr.
I ayne, a commercial traveler for the linn
of Pierson Clark, at Lexington, Ky.,
had both legs crushed, and has since died.
Delay to the passenger trains by this
wreck caused the mistake of tho engineer
and conductor of freight train No. 22 by
which the tunnel collision occ rred. For-
unateiy the passenger train had not en-

At 11 o'clock to-day the heat and smoke
prevent anything being done to clear the
tunnel. General Manager Carroll left by
this mornings train for the scene, and
will personally direct w hatever is neces-
"ry to be done. The railroad officials
have heard of but one passenger injured.
IIis name is not given, but he has beeu

Topera, Kan., Oct 15.—The Santa Fe
Denver west bound vestihuled train that ,
left Topeka at 1:10 p. m., yesterday went
in a ditch ten miles south of Topeka, near
Wakarusa station. Just this side of the
place is a great curve. It was there the
wreck occurred. The train was running
at a high rate of speed. The curve was so
sharp and the speed was so great, 'ha al-
though the engine and tender passed 1
around it safely, the express, mail and
baggage cars and three Pullman vestibule
cars left the track. The mail car turned
bottom side up, lying diagonally apon the
main track, w hile the ex press and baggage
cars toppled over ou the other side. The
two day coaches simply turned crosswise
of the track and the chair, sleeper and
tourists cars, turned over on their sides,
completing almost a total wreck of the
train. A relief train with surgeons and
wrecking aparatus left this city immedi-
ately the news of the disaster became
known. The train returned at 6 o'clock '
with the injured passengers, who were' j
taken to the National hotel, where they
were cared for by the company. No one
was killed in the wreck and as yet no
deaths have occurred from injuries. About
150 people were on board and it was one I
of the most miraculous escapes from a '
fearful disaster that has ever been known.
About eighteen persjns were injured, four j
of whom quite seriously.
