Salem Daily News, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1890, Salem, Ohio THE SAX.EM DAILY NEW VOL. IL NO. 211. SALEM. OHIO, SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 6. 1890. TWO CENTS. CEil OF A Express en the New Central Wrecked. HE OKDRKS. A Bail Placed Across the Track Re- sults in the Demolition oi Six Coachea. Iujureilt but None to- From Ap- palling; Di'.nster Large Loss to the Company. ALBANY, N. Y.. The second of train No. tho Adirondack and Montreal frcr.i N-'w York, j on the New York O-tr'il nilroad. was wrecked about three miles below Green- bnsh, about en'.' o'clock yesterday morn- ing. Six sleepers were wrecked, but. miraculous it may seem, no one was killed. Seven persons injured. A single rail pla-.-e-d cros.s-.vise on the track in front of the train resulted in the dis- i aster. Six ejac" .vere b.itto sido up on o: a embankment and three were and wrenched beyond rop-.ir. Of rho eight sleer.ors comprising the train but j ttvo wt'rr- left or. the tra--k. The others were either on the embankment or ly- ing across the rails. i Atnonz the sixty passengers were a j number of New Yorkersnnd nearly half of them were women. Nearly all were asleep in their berths and knew nothing until they felt themselves clashed from their bunks and opened their eyes to find them-selves lying across other pas- sengers. Improvised bunk-- in tho re- lief train were made for the injured by three Albany physicians and their wants were administered to. Fortunately none of the cars took fire, or the loss of life would have been groat. Most of the passengers got oif at Albany and re- mained at the hotels for a while to col- lect their scattered senses. All were able to proceed on their journey except a Mrs. Atkinson, who was taken to tbo city hospital. Superintendent Bissoll will institute a ria-orov.s investigation to ascertain, if possible, who placed tho obstruction on tho tr.ick. The destruc- tion of the train must have been de- cided upon in a hurry, for the wrecked train was but twenty-Sve minutes be- hind the first section and that came through all right. The loss in money to the company will foot up into tho thousands. The statement of the engineer is to the effect that he was running at high speed, as he was late. The first indica- tion ho had of an obstruction on the track was the cotiplote turning over of his engine with a crush, n or awhile he was stunned, but he soon re- coTore'd and be and tho fireman started back toward the express due in twelve minutes. Tasy succeeded in signaling it and then returned to their own train. The front of tho engine and the small trucks were badly smashed. Not only was the obstruction placed on the up- tfack, but the down-track was also blocked. Another attempt was made to wreck a passenger train Friday morning. The train from the west, duo horo at a. m., came slowly down through the gap u-est of West Albany when the engineer saw an obstruction on the track. The train was and it was found that ties had been thro-, n on tho tracks by some Thfy were removed and the train to city. Superintendent h.is received a dispatch from Vice 1'resident Webb toll- ing him to oilf r a reward of 35.000 for tbo detection of tbo person or persons who placed the rail on the track, caus- ing the accident. Arbitration Commis- sioner Donovan say- iii.it i'uf obstruc- tion was in a most diabolic-ally aiethodic.il manner. T.'io two sections of steel rail were up between tbo rails and the in such a manner that the engine would ride upon them and be wrecked. Tne rails were propped up by pieces of railroad iron. Alleged that the Failure of -awyer. Wal- lace Co. Rttultrd from the Stubborn Foolish Conduct of I.on-ion Agent. NEW YORK, Sept. 3. Th? H-'rsld pub- lishes a storv to the effect tha: the fail- ure of Sawyer, Wallace jfc Co. was un- doubtedly due to the treachery of L. W. Sawyer, the London agent of the firm. This gentleman is represented to have had a fascination for much so that the firm bad from time to time remonstrated with him. In in attempt to corner tho pork market a year ago Sawyer :s said to have utterly disregarded the New York house and to enor- mous orders to the Chi- tive of the firm. Heavy j.-dfrs drawn on the New York hoi.se i'-. of maturing contracts startled the firm into realizing that, through thf'.r ngent, they owned the entire visible supply of pork in the country at such figures made it impossible to unload at other than a severe loss. Mr. Sawyer disregarded orders to Stop his tran--3.: lions buy- ing pork tbrousrh I.or.c.on wh'le it was being disposed of in No-.v York at a loss. af-pp'ptir.g '..o rec-ivc-r themselves, Sawy.ir, Wallace oi Co. lost every thing. In regard to suicide of the Berlin agent, the Herald's narra- tive savs that it is almost a certainty that tho man had sen; a number of false contracts for grain to thf London house and bad embezzled the amount of guar- antee on a number of gonuine ones.

CoDimi.ssioner Purcell asked for tho production of the agreement between the road and tho men and it was put in evidence. The investigation was then closed.
