What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Wreck Occurred Nqar Lincoln, Massv— Passenger Train Crashed Into Ac­ commodation Train—More Than 30 People Injured—Signals Could Not Be Seen—Wreck Took Fire. Lincoln, Maas.. 27.—Eighteen sons were killed, 30 or more were seri­ ously Injured, and probably a «core of others cut and bruised In tbe most dis­ astrous railroad wreck recorded ln this slate for many years. The wreck occurred at 8:16 o'clock at Baker's Bridge station, a mile and a half west of Lincoln, on the main line of the Fitchburg division of the Boston & Maine railroad. The regular Sunday express which left Boston at 7:45 o'clock for Montreal by way of the Rutland system, crashed Into the t< for points on the Marlborough branch, and which started from Boston at 7:16. O f the dead, a dozen were passen­ gers In the two rear cars of the Marl- press, and his fireman. No passengers on the express train were injured. Of those who lost their llvea, a numoer were apparently instantly killed In the collision, while others were either burned to death or died from suffoca- on. There were 13 persona taken from the wreck and three died after being Three of the bodies were headless. Two skulls were found at 2 and 20 minutes later a man's bead with a full beard was picked up. It is difficult to fix tbe exact number of those who perished, but it is thought It will not exceed 18. The Dead. A partial list of-tbe dead Is as fol­ lows: Eugene Barnard, engineer of Montreal train. Lyons, fireman of the treal train. Anna Hilbrldge. aged 5.years, Acton. Daniel Weatberbee, Acton. May Campbell, Mnyhard. William J. Harris, Maynard. Three yeq^old child of Mr. Barris. Neftie Sweeney, Concord. —------- Maganao, Concord. May Collins Concord. Seven unidentified bodies. The wreck was primarily due thick weather, which apparently soured signals. At a reoent meeting of directors of the Chioago, Millwankee A St Paul Railroad company the board formally authorised the building of tbe 8t. Paul extension to the Paoiffo ooast from Evarta, S. D-, to Seattle and Tacoma. It was specified in the offioial an­ nouncement that the work o f construc­ tion is to begin forthwith. It is esti­ mated that the coot will be about $600,000,000. While all details of the route hare not been decided on, the Una wUl run toward the Rocky moun­ tain* west by north o f west to Butte, fhenoe tt will be extended weatetrly, oroeeing the Bitter Root mountains thruogh Lolo pass and nltmately oon-‘ neoting at WaUnla, Wash., the termi- i*,of the reoently incorporated Pacific ilrooad, whioh runs to that point om Seattle. Tbe St. Paul wUl also seek an ontlet at Taooma, and will tonoh Helena, Spokane and Portland. The work o f construction will be be­ gan simultsneonsly at Seattle on the Pacific road and at Evarta. The line farther south, whioh is in course of oonstruotion form Chamberlain, 8. Ik, to Rapid City, in the Black hills, a 200 mile project, will alio be. connected with the northwestern extension brsnoh line. . It is probable that branch lines will extend to the Coeur d'Alene country, eset o f Spokane, for the mining and timber business o f that eeotion. QOMPER8 AGAIN PRESIDENT. The A. F. of L.
