BAD WRECK ON B. & O. AT LEESBURG OHIO - 2 KILLED.
     By Publishers' Press Direct Wire.
     Chillicothe, Ohio, Sept. 19 - All of the injured in the wreck of the Royal Blue Flyer on the Baltimore & Ohio Western road at Leesburg, Ohio, last night, were brought to this city.  The number was almost fifty, but none of them is fatally hurt, and the death list will probably remain at two.
     Engineer Philip roe and Fireman Charles Studer, of this city, were killed.  Mrs. John Sellers, of Wellston, Ohio, is the most seriously injured and she was cared for at Leesburg.
     No plausible explanation is given of the wreck.
  it was the first thought that a crew had left the switch open but there was no train on the siding at the time.
