Nourse, Manager Tottenham, June mir- aculous escape from disaster occurred last night about halj" past eleven, o'- clock one and one-half miles north of Tottenham when the westbound Win- nipeg train which left Toronto 'at 9.30 left the rails and six coaches including tourist and sleepers were precipitated down an embankment over 20 feet, turning completely up- side down. One car went to the east side of the track and the other five to-the west. Forty persons were in- jured, two of them probably fatally. The engine, baggage, and the last of the train, remained on the track. Al- most all the passengers, who num- bered about two hundred, had re- tired for the night which made the work of extricating them more diffi- cult- It was half an hour before all had been taken from the wreck. It was found that what looked to be a terrible calamity was not so serious. While none were killed, in bility two of the injured will die, if not more, both being ladies from Parry Sound. There are passengers with broken legs, bad scalp wounds, numbering probably fifteen of a -ser- ious nature, with a total of at least forty injured. Fifty of the passengers wno were in the train were a part of an excur- sion party who had been to the Guelph Model Farm and were return- ing via Toronto. With a very few exceptions they were all in oiie car and this coach had the greatest num- ber of victims. A miraculous escape was that of a six year old baby be- ing taken home by its mother, Mrs. TEL. Morris, wife of a reporter oi the Brandon Sun. The little one was thrown from its berth and could not be found by its mother for some twen minutes. Its whereabouts was at last discovered by the and it was-tafcen out none the worse for the mix up. The passengers were conveyed by busses here where they were provided for. ronto which brought up three hospi- tal cars as well as two nurses and as. many physicians had all those hurt conveyed'to this train where ev- ery comfort and attention was .given. At one o'clock in the afternoon the passengers were taken in a special train from here to the scene of the wreck where a train had arrived and after transferring them with baggage all those who could proceeded on their way. A train was also made for Toronto and a number return- ed on this to the city. Among those of the passengers who escaped unhurt was R. II. Gamey, M.L.A. What could have caused the acci- dent is a mystery. The rolling stock seemed to be first class and Uie nart of the road adjacent to Tottenham always considered the pirt of the roadbed between Toronto ana Bala.
