Both Engines Disabled and Cars Derailed. There was a bad collision on the BluCfLlne at the passenger depot at an early hour this morning. Two freight trains, a regular and a special, came together in a head end collision and the shook did thousands of dollars in damage to the two trains. The engines were No. 120 northbound drawing the special and engine No. 32 southbound with the regular train. At the time of the collision neither engine was making over ten miles an hour and probably less. The collision was due to a mistake in orders. Sn perlntendent Millard came here this morning to investigate and find out who was to blame. When the two trains came together, the engines smashed each other, th« pony truck, pilot, smoke-box and headlight of each being crushed into a useless pile of rubbish. The frames of both engines were bent and the entire machinery was badly jarred. The engine crews did not jump before the shook, being no necessity for it as the cab of neither engine was damaged. Several cars of the southbound train were derailed, one loaded witheoal partially telescoping a car loaded with hogs. A wrecking crew was sent for and arrived early this morning to clear the track. The engineer of the regular train, Casey, assumed most of the responsibility for the wreck. He said this morning that he supposed the blame should be laid on him. Whenever any orders await the train here a signal Is hung out, but ordinarily the curve makes it extremely difficult to see the signal until very close to the depot. The cold last night made the engine's exhaust steam hang so low on the ground that the signal was not visible until the train had gone too far to be stopped at safety. The special was ordered to -meet the regular here in the yards. Before the engineer of the regular ooald stop to back his train up to a switch the collision occurred. The wreck was an exceedingly fortunate one, tor the engines would certainly have rolled down the embankment and sustained great damage had they left the rails. Only a few wheels of either engine left the track and they were soon put on. The track was blocked to all traffic, but arrangements were made for the use of the 0. & A. tracks until the Bluff track was cleared.
