JUDGE EDWAED3 ALLS TO ZZ CVT Quincy, Mass., Aug. 21. (Special.) The surviving victims from Louisville of the frightful accident, on the Old Colony railroad, near tuiney," on Tues day afternocn, are alout in the same condition as reported yesterday. Littlo ilii?abeth Fenley 'is soniewhat weaker. but is able to ttiko and retain nourish ment, and her vitality is greater. Her nuttic, Ducy, was terribiy burned, but will probably recover on account of her strong constitution. Her little charge is in kind hau ls and has the best of care. The child bus manifested bravery and !puticnco astonishing to tliooe near her. In the chapel of the Orthodox or Con- Con- cuureh. lie ai cothned lorms; four are shrouded in black, the other two being white porcelain caskets. Directly Directly in trout ot tlie ciunccl are the cofluis containing tlie bodic of Mrs. Feuh-yi Feuh-yi Feuh-yi the cider, while on either side are the remain of her daughter, Mrs. Abbott,' and her Rranddaughter, Miss Sue Fenley. A second row also of three caskets ere those of Mrs. Oncar FcnU-y FcnU-y FcnU-y iu the center, with the little corpses of her children at her side. Mr. Oscar Fenley and his brother ar rived here a few minutes ago. and went at once to the ehurc.h, where tlie remains ol the relatives were lying. From there they went to Mis. Carr't, on Adams street, where little Dlizaberh is hovering between lite and death. They have not yrt decided as lo the immediite future future arrangements, but. it is thought the bodies will be forwarded to Loui. villa to-night, to-night, to-night, in the care of devoted friends, while Mr. Fenley will remain at the bedhide of his liule daughter. A viit to the beautiful tjuiney Hoa-litaL Hoa-litaL Hoa-litaL where nearly ail of the victims of tlie arcident were taken, sfforded an op portunity to see snd talk with Judge Ld- Ld- waras, who is in excellent coalition and spirits, and doing all in his power to alleviate alleviate the n;ttab i f niini an I bnly in -r.t-irh -r.t-irh -r.t-irh -r.t-irh the dire eL"n'v ha t I' LtS tiaveling Ul.a...-ju, Ul.a...-ju, Ul.a...-ju, ' C-J-t.

Ihe hyir ians allow no one to see hint excepting Jude RI- RI- waiim, w!io reisiits li fiinils Condi tion friitu tiaic to time. ' Were it not for his anxiety for Capt. Ahtvott- Ahtvott- Judne td wards would be able to leave lor houe aloiost inuuedUtely, but he say be will stay until the tptaia can accompany him, or arnmse soiuf ein-r ein-r ein-r tihtn. The Jud,e is tnthusiastio o-er o-er o-er tbe attention and treatment the suf ferrrs havt received, and savs .noihlnj his been left umloue for their comfort. The first of the Lousville sufferers to pass awsy was the younK-fct younK-fct younK-fct Fenley chilJ, Alh. She cried inecaniiy alter tue accident. whi h occurred at about 1 d. m. At Z o'clock the little one died Tlie utxt victim was her si'tef Cath erine, aed four ear, who sueeumb.-d sueeumb.-d sueeumb.-d to ler sufferings half an hour later. Her death was in measure unepe ied, as she had borue up wonderfully uud.-r uud.-r uud.-r lier Injurie. nnd was conscious until the lat, calling for her ruaniruu in a full tone of voice, which misled th-v-m th-v-m th-v-m th-v-m th-v-m around her aa to Iter condition. Tlie mother, Mr. ear Fenley. died within aa Loirr after the two children She a unconscious except for a eliort tinv Hie fourth dentil was that of Miss Sue Fenley, which took piaee at o'clock the same eveiiing. Her condition was considered hopeless from the time fciia wa received st the hospital. The Inst death up to date in the ill fated piirtv was that of Mrs. Capt. W. R Abbott, which occurred at 8 o'clock on Wednesday niernirg. When Cpt. Au lott was told that his wife had expired his grief was terrible to thoo uroiimi l.lui. His asony as be knelt at her Wd-side Wd-side Wd-side was such that it was feared his mind would give way under the burden of his affliction. Mr. Mary Feuley. Messrs. Fenley' mother, was tlie only member of the party who was killed outright, Mie prolably received a wound from 1he shattered tim'er, as h'-r h'-r h'-r head was badly crushed, so much so that it was diflicult at first to idenify licr. The features of most of the Louisville victims are dreadfully mutilated, especial ly those of Mrs. Mary Feniev. Mrs. 0- 0- car Fenlev. Mr. Abbott and litth; Cath erine. The faces of Mi'i Sue Fenley and little Alice especially the latter are not so disfigured. AU tf the deatl enumerated, 'with the exception of Mrs Mary Fenley, oecnrted from the saaie Ciuse, viz. the inhalation of the escaping steam. It is this who h is also fearr in the case ot little Llict!i, who vil most probably die. Ihe physician con cur in this- this- statement and Dr. I'm who attended Capt. Ah'nitt, s.'.js the only thirtc to fear is " ned,-ma ned,-ma of tli'' gh'ttis,"" whii li sei-ms sei-ms sei-ms to Ik? the d" -hni'-al -hni'-al -hni'-al -hni'-al term f t.;e cans," which pro.luc. s:n : ful n suits In tlie other vm-. vm-. vm-.

THE FENLEY BROTHERS- BROTHERS- The Arrival of the Uafortaaata Cea lemen Followed By the Khipmeat of Ike Codies of the Dead ta Louisville. Boston, 5lia., Aug. 21. (Special.) ihe two brothers, Oscar and William Feuley, did not arrive at yuincy until this alteraoou at 3 o'clock. They went at untie to the hospital to see Capt. Ab bott, bat were allowed to remain only Dc'icnt, as tbe patient's condition is so al tfiat be is not allowed to talk and c see visitors only a few moments at a time. ir. Oscar Fenley then hurried to tlie Carr residence, where his little daughter f-dizabeth f-dizabeth f-dizabeth Is, and when tbe lit tle sufferer recognized him, and despite her pains was able to murmur papa," he went nearly wild with delight. The Courier-Journal Courier-Journal Courier-Journal representative saw1 him for a moment, for he won't stir tioua ttie Tittle cot for more than a mo ment at a time. He said he wanted through the Courier-Journal Courier-Journal Courier-Journal to thank oil ids friends for their ayuipatby and re- re- njeuihrcnce ot him in this great trial. for on bis arrival he lound a host of telegrams, etc., awaiting him. He will not leave Quincy until all the injured ot Lis party have recovered or done the worse. He is most anxious for Capt. Ab bott, wno i worn ing himself to death. ss he holds l.iuiwlf re-iKnible re-iKnible re-iKnible for the ti r, t - x,'i c piiuie mover of Hie trip. Many relative of the Fenley family are fiockiug here from New Yotk and v nous resorts in New i jig land and there is plrnity of help.

The olwqnUs will lie left to the family at home, as neilh-r neilh-r neilh-r Oscar nor William Fenley will leave Quincy at prewnt. . Mr. Orscar Fenley said the first he kn? of tlie disaster was from -the -the Couricr-Joornal's Couricr-Joornal's Couricr-Joornal's bulletin bourd. He was walk ing hurriedly sloug Fourth avcaue on a business errand, and happened to glance careh-sts'y careh-sts'y careh-sts'y at the board. When he saw it. he felt as if a terrible blow hud been given him, snd for a niouieut he could scarcely tau:l. lie rusiicU at onoe home, threw some clothing into a bag and left on the first train. He came through wit hoot a delay. The injured are doing well. Judge 1'. J wards- wards- is all right, aa is also the nurse, Lucy Johnson. Capt. Ablx-tt's Ablx-tt's Ablx-tt's case. while not hopeless, is critical, and it U feared that he has inhaled steam. His case ia very doubtful. The little girl is doing nicely, anJ, while the chances are really against her recovery, still every hour that she lives improves la-r la-r la-r chances. as it is now only a question of vitality with her. She is constantly conscious. which is a food sign, although opiate' ha. 9 to be given tier. AN INVESTIGATION. Aa Official laqairr lata the CarIes ess Which Resulted In the Calaas- Calaas- itr.
