Collision ca the Lake Shore Koad. The Disaster Occurs at Kipton Station, O.—Nine Persons Lose Their Lives—Several Others Hurt. SLAET AT A SIDIXG. CLEVELAND, O., April ,20.—A frightful wreck occurred on the Lake Shore railroad at Kipton station, 40 miles west of Cleveland, early Saturday evening-, in which six postal clerks, two engineers and a fireman were killed. The fast mail, No. 14, hound east, collided with No. 21, the Toledo express, just as the latter train was about to pull on the siding: to let the fast mail pass. The fast mail was running at full speed, and the force of the collision was so great that both engines, three mail cars and one baggage car were completely wrecked. Following- is the list of the dead: Edward Brown engineer of No. 21, of Toledo, O.; Charles Topljff, engineer of No. 14, of Toledo, 0.; F. J. Nugent, postal clerk, of Toledo, 0.; Charles- Hammfll, postal clerk, of Elyrla, 0.; F. E. Clemens, postal clerk, of Cleveland, 0.; John J. Bowcrflno, postal clerk, of Elyrla, O.; James McKimey, nostal cleric, of Conneaut, O.; C. H. McDowell, postal clerk, of Elyrla, O.; Staley, fireman No. 14. The injured are: Abram Dereamer, passenger; Charles Dazey, railroad employe; Klinefelder, express messenger. Abram Dereamer, a farmer living 1 near Kipton, was the only passenger hurt. He was standing on the platform when the collision occurred, and his skull was f ractnred. He may recover. Charles Dazey, son of the section bass, was standing on the depot platform, and was badly hurt about the head. His skull is supposed to be fractured. Express Messenger Kline- felder, of Cleveland, 0., was badly hurt about the legs and may die. The loss to the railroad company will not fall short of 8100,000. None of the pass'en- ger cars left the tra^k and but one passenger received serious injuries. It was the custom for these two trains to pass at Kipton, the Toledo express taking the side track for the fast mail, which usually went through Kipton without slackening its speed. The Toledo express was a few minutes late .and had just come to a stop at the switch when the fast mail came in sight. There is scarcely any curve at the station, but on one side of the track was a line of freight cars and on the other the station. These might have obstructed the vision, of the engineer of the fast mail. He applied the air brakes when, he saw that a collision was inevitable, but the speed of the train was not checked materially^! The pas. engers of ths two trains at once began the work of rescue, and, with a corps of physicians from the town, ministered to the few who were injured. The bodies of the dead were all horribly crushed and mutilated, arms and legs "being torn off, and the corpses were almost beyond recognition. , Charles Topiff, the engineer of the fast mail, remained bravely at his post and was found with his hand on the throttle, dead. His hands and face were so badly scalded that the blackened flesh dropped from" the bones when his body was taken out. Fireman Stanley, of the fast mail, jumped from the train and escaped with a broken leg and dislocated shoulder. The doctors say he will recover. The poor postal clerks had not a chance to escape. They were caged like rats and the telescoping of the cars crushed the life out of "them without a moment's notice. It is difficult to locate the blame for the accident, as both the engineers are dead. It is said, however, that No. 21 was ordered to stop at Oberlin but went on to Kipton, which is 6 miles further west,. and had not sufficient time to make the side track. Captured by His Wife's plucky Sister. MAYSVILLE, Ky., April 20.—About 11 o'clock a. m. Alex. Johnson quarreled with his wife and shot her in the head, inflicting what is probably a fatal wound.
