St. Louis, Nov. 14 -- Thirty-five persons were injured, two of them probably fatally, in the wreck of the Wabash limited No. 10, which left the Union station at 9:22 o'clock yesterday morning and was derailed just as it was rounding the sharp curve leading to the Merchants' bridge in North St. Louis.
The engine leaped srom the rails and turned over on its back, the steam pipes bursting and scalding Engineer HAINES and Fireman LLEWELLYN so they probably will die.
The baggage car also turned over on its side, and two chair cars were partly wrecked, but the parlor car remained upright, and the observation car and the private car of Gen. Supt. Hurley of the Santa Fe, which had been attached at the world's fair station, did not leave the rails.
