With a terrible crash Southern Pacific passenger train No. 15, westbound, collided headon with the engine of the local freight train, No. 248, at Vineland, a sma^ll station 3 miles west of Covina, on Monday morning at 8:10, the speed of the passenger at tbe time of the collision being nearly 25 miles uu hour. The wreck is tbe most remarkable in the annals of railroad accidents in Southern California in that no one in the well-filled passenger coaches of tbe passenger train, or in the crews of the trains, was injured beyond minor scratches and contusions, except engineer William Rotsler, of the passenger train, who was badly bruised about the legs. Dr. J. D. Reed, railroad surgeon, in company with tbe Argus reporter, was early on the scene but fortunately his services were not required. The terrific force of the collision w as shown by tbe condition of the passenger engine, the tender of which was forced into the engine cab almost to tbe boiler plates, the steam pipes being broken and the bead of tbe engine smashed completely.

' Toe paMenger y.^-v,-^ themselves from instant d| ; atb by jumping. 'V John M. Blancbfleld, the engineer of the freight, was running bis train on time orders. After leaving Bassett be found be would not have time to reach Vinelnnd before the arrival of the passenger. Uncoupling his engine he left his train on tbe main track and went abead about one mile with his engine to flag tbe passenger. His watch was two minutes slow and just as h'j alighted from his engine to go abead with tbe flag tbe passenger loomed up out of the fog, not more than six car lengths ahead, going at a speed of 25 miles an hour. Tbe crash was inevitable and that there waa no loss of life is remaik- able. About forty persons were in the two day coaches, and tbe combination mail, baggage and smoker on train No. 15. They bad not the least warning of the coming accident, as the conductor and brakeman were in the rear of the train. When the shook came, tbe passengers were thrown forward against tho scats and into the aislen. Several women wore in the two front coaches, but they suffered IO.HH from the shook than did tbe men in the smoker in tho rear. When tbo hiss of tho scaping steam from tho boilers was hoard, and the passengers bad recovered in a measure from the shock of tho impact, a rush was made for the doors. In the rear coach woro Deputy District Attorney C. C. McCorimB, Cup- tain John T. Brady of Pomona, former supervisor, and H. (i. Schuler of San Dimas, a meuiher of tho term jury. Captain Brady sustained several scratches on his right hand. McComas was thrown violently forward to the seat in front, but came out uuscratcbed otherwise. MJ.HH Margaret Middloton and Robin Orai ham of Charter Oak were also passengers. r Jil'tbe entire 'donfraot, alleging that tbe trees were infested with parole scale, of which he had no knowledge.
