Obituary

The Bartonsville Accident
Further Particulars - A Train Runs into a Washout - Two Persons Killed and a Number Injured.

The evening (mixed) train from Boston, Josiah Bowtell, conductor, due in Rutland at 9 o'clock, Tuesday evening, ran into a washout about 2 1/2 miles south of Bartonsville, and eight miles from Bellows Falls, near Rockway's mills. Edwin D. Davis, fireman, of Rutland, and Frank E. Kemp, express messenger, of Bellows Falls, were killed, and Christopher Rice, second baggage master, of Rutland, was seriously injured. Albert Pratt, the engineer, had his collar-bone broken. None of the passengers were seriously injured.

Fireman Davis, of Rutland, had been employed on the Rutland division for about seven years. He leaves an aged mother and a wife and two children. Express messenger Kemp had been on the road four years and was about 26 years old. He leaves no family. Both were steady and respected young men.
