Railroad Collision
JOLIET, Ill., Oct. 22. -- A collision occurred yesterday forenoon on the Elgin, Joliet and Eastern Outer belt line, just west of the trestle bridge, between an east-bound freight and a west-bound gravel train, causing the death of Thomas Lawler, assistant foreman, and injuring four other men. David Davis was badly injured internally and will die. Thomas Davis had a shoulder broken. Joseph Bolasniki's legs were broken and W. Welker was badly bruised. The engineers and firemen of both trains jumped in time to save their lives. The collision was caused by a misunderstanding of orders.
