It was reported over the telephone this noon that a great wreek had occurred on the Grand Trunk at or near Battle Creek this morning. Two regular trains collided with terrific force and both trains are a complete wreek. The wreek took fire immediately after the collision and an heroic gang of rescuers are at work attempting to stay the flames and rescue the injured. Already 22 bodies have been taken from the ruins, some of them burned beyond recognition. It is thought that the Assistant Superintendent of Construction on the Grand Trunk is in the wreek, as no news can be obtained concerning him. Details are meager, and are hard to obtain at this writing, the presses being stopped to insert this intelligence. Friday seems to be an unlucky day for railroads and travellers.
