Long WRECK OF A COAL PROSPECTING TRAIN: One hundred years ago the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway as on it's way to economic recovery after being bankrupt and now reorganized with long range plans to make the Company solvent. The line of road had just opened up between Richmond, Virginia and Newport News, Virginia. The Virginia State Board of Public Works had authorized C. & O. President Collis P. Huntington to acquire land and water frontage for a terminus at Newport News. The harbor was large enough to float ocean commerce. Wharves were built extending out into the deep water. Coal tipples and chutes for coaling purposes were built and the necessary facilities for handling merchandise. About the same time Mr. Huntington organized the "Covington and Cincinnati Railway Transfer and Bridge Company" for the purpose of building a bridge over the Ohio River linking Covington, Kentucky with Cincinnati, Ohio. It was named the Huntington Bridge in honor of the C. & O. President and was completed in 1888 signalling the opening of the Cincinnati Division. Coal tonnage carried by the C. & O. continued to increase yearly and had increased from 849,078 tons in 1882 to 1,395,000 tons in 1888. Branch lines into the coal fields were being built. Coal companies were opening up small minds to take advantage of the offer made by the C. & O. to buy their coal for resale to other railroads and businesses along the line. The C. & O. Coal Agency was organized and sat up to handle this resale business. There were no super highways back then. Only stage Coach turnpikes, wagon roads, trails and foot paths. To reach into the coal country the only way in and out was by train or horseback. It was on one of these trips by train in the Cabin Creek territory where tragedy was to strike. C. P. Huntington had just recently employed an experienced railroad man named L. S. Oakford of Scranton, PA. for the position of Superintendent, a very important position in those days. Superintendent Oakford arranged with a party of coal operators to take a trip up the Gulch, now known as Dawes Hollow, to prospect for coal. Arrangements were made for the trip on August 19, 1885 using engine No. 1, engineer J. C. Moist who was regularly assigned to this engine and conductor Burl Epperly. Engine No. 1 was probably one of the early American type 4-4-0 engines used by the C. & O. Some of them were This is a weekly publication of the Summers County Council on Aging Inc., 120 Second Ave., Hinton.

Reinforce math skills by letting children watch you balance your checkbook. You can also read with your child at night. The key is to keep them involved with your activities. Food For Thought Dinnertime is a good time to catch up with your kids. Talk about the day's events, what hap- pened in school and what they have planned for the rest' of the week. Mix it up--have a picnic in the family room on the floor. When the weather is nice, have a family dinner on the patio.

The engineers assigned these engines took great pride in their ~vork and the appearance of their engines and kept them well greased and the brass highly polished. On this particular trip, 'up the gulch,' the group in theparty included L. S. Oakford who was Superintendent of the Railway, a Mr. Towman who was Superintendent of Coal Valley Coal Company, Thomas Peacock, Joseph Hall, ,Amos Mitchell and W. S. Edwards. That afternoon, the party was getting ready to depart riding out on a flat car. The cars got away and the further they went the faster the speed. The entire party jumped off but they had waited too long. As they jumped the cars started piling up and all were killed in the wreck except W. S. Edwards. Mr. Edwards considered himself very lucky for as he scrambled out of the way a set of trucks landed in the exact spot he had just vacated. Thus, the career of a promising young C. & O.
