Bj Associated Pre-s.] READING (Pa Sept. of the worst wrecks ever known in this sec- tion occurred on the Heading railroad, 17 miles from here. Near Shoeniiikersvillo there is a curve, where the railroad is about 18 or 20 feet higher than the river. Ilere.shoitly before 6 o'clock, a freight train ran into a co.il train, throwing several cars onto the opposite track. Uufoie the train bunds had time to warn any atipioat-hing train of danger, tho Pottsville expresH, carrying about 150 passengers, came mound the curve at the rate of forty miles an hour, and ran into the wrecked coal cars. The engine went down the embankment, followed by the entire train, with its human freight. The scene was one of vjreat horror. Tho crins of the impris- oned passengers weie heartrending. Some of the managed to crawl out of their prison and arouse the neighborhood. Word was tele- giuphcd to this citv, and surgeons and a force of 1500 workmen taken to the spot. The HOI k was slow, and the dead and dying were taken out with great difficulty. Up to 10 o'clock to-night G dead and 30 wounded had been taken out. hitter, some were brought lo city and the others taken to the Miners' at Ashland. The duad taken out so far are VVillian D. Sljomo, Heading; John White, engi- neer, 1'otthville; James Templin, fire- man, Pottsville; Harry Logan, con- ductor, Pottsville; David Angus tad t, Muhotiey City; Kdward Logan, bag- master, Shenatidoah. RK.VDINO Sept. da) light dawned on the scene of last night's wreck on the Philadelphia and Hedding railroad, the full realization of the indescribable horror was first fully revealed. The engine lay in a foot of Hater, the body of eiigineei White being pinned under the heavy iron work, with arms extended in an appeal above the water. Next lay the tender on its side, aud then the bag- giyo and mail e.irs and passenger uuduhuH, with timbers' broken and the n.tis overturned, pinning their unres- cued victims in their embrace at tho bottom of the river. Searching for the bodies was con tinned nil night and a number more were taken out. The body of George K. Kaersher, General Counsel of the Heading railroad, was taken out this morning badly disfigured. The scene on tho banks of the river was ghastly. The long row of dead was increased as one Hfter another of the bodies were brought out. It is ditlicult to move the ponderous cars. Thousands flocked to the scene, willing to assist, but their aid was of very little sprvice where experienced .men were required. Up to 10 o'clock this forenoon, twenty bodies were taken out, and the list of injured is now about 50.

CATLKTTSBURO Sept. vices of a reliable nature received to- day From Louisa, Ky., say that on Twelve Pole Creek, near WayneCourt- house, Virginia, on Friday, a terrible fight occurred between a Sheriff's posse and a gang of Italian railroad laborers, in which several Italians were killed and a number wounded. Some weeks ago a contractor on the Norfolk Western Railroad named Keogh went away, leaving numerous creditors, among the number being the Italians. A new contractor took possession of the abandoned works, and put a number of laborers to work in a cut formerly worked by the Ital- ians. The latter refused to allow any one to work in the cut. until they had received pay for the work done under Keogh, and proceeded to oust the new laborers. Three times the new labor- ers were run out, and the contractor applied to tho Court for protection. He was furnished a posse of about a dozen men, headed by the Sheriff of Wayne. On Friday the Sheriff appeared and made an attempt to arrest the Italians, who fiercely resisted, and the unequal combat proceeded with fortv or more Italians on one side, armed with stones, knives and revolvers, and the Sheriff's men on the >ther. The Italians fought from behind trees and whatever would shield a man's body. The firing became gen- eral and lasted some minutes Sev- eral Italians were killed and several wounded. The Sheriff's men escaped with a few severe bruises. About twenty Italians were arrested and taken to jail, aud the remainder escaped in the woods. The scene of the fight is forty or fifty miles from here and remote from railroad and telegraph Mtcamrr Wrecked. By Associated Press.] SAN FRANCISCO, Sept.
