Fatal Railway Collision.


Sydney, May 13. While the mail train, from Brisbane was shunting at Earley near Maitland, the mail train from Sydney dashed into it. The force of the collision was terrific. Two carriages of the Brisbane train were thrown from the line, while a horsebox and two carriages of the Sydney train were smashed to splinters. A jockey named McFalyin was killed outright. Among those injured are the drivers, Sandefsen and' Farren, Messrs Strickland and Foley, Misses O'Kellar and Rose. A racehorse in a horsebox was killed. It is said that a heavy fog obscured the signals. Great loss of life was only averted through the engine-driver backing the stationary; train.
