Special to the Inquirer

CONNELLSVILLE, Pa., June 27.—One man was killed by a head-on collision between Bidwell and Ursina, on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, this morning, and a shifting engine, working with the wreck crew, killed a trainman only a short time after the collision had occurred. The dead are:

Brakeman M. H. Bowers of Narrows Park, near Cumberland, and Henry L. Fowler, a brakeman, run down by his engine and mangled so that he died before medical assistance could be secured.
