Senator Declares That Nebraskan's
Proposition Involves The Most Ad
Ever Offered Under a Free Govern
Dallas, Tex., SpeciI.-At 3 ban
puet tendered by the citizens of Dal
!as to the next Texas .Agfslature,
United States Senator Culberson vig
orously opposed government owner
ship of railroads as proposed by Mr.
Bryan two months ago. The cheer
ing throughout his remarks was gen
oral. Declaring that the future of
the Democratic party depends upon
ts adherence to its fundamental prin
iples and especially opposition to
paternalism and centralization, hc
said that great as have been the of
tenses of the Republicau party, any
single.proposition in its history is as
aaught compared with the policy of
government ownership and operation
f all railroads. Senator Culberson
-leclared this principle was first ar
nounced in the platform of the Pop
alist party, and declared that the
measure invoved the most advanced
and aggravated form of pat-rnalism
ever offered under & free government,
anless perhaps its companion Populist
mesure, the sub-Treasury.
Senator Culberson declared that
the doctrine, if applied, will eventu
ally lead to government ownership of
every business susceptible of mnonop
ly. He characterized it as "the es
sence of Socialism."
Women May Ask to Vote.
Denver, Col., Special.-Miss Hel
an Summer has been sent liere by
the Collegiate League of Equal Suf
Erage of New York to investigate wo
mau sutirage as as it is practiced in
Colorado. "It is very amusing to
me to see the woruen as ttey act at
conventions." she said. in speaking
of her observations. "They jabber
iway among themselves just as they
io at a club meeting until a subject
comes up to be voted on in which
they are directly interested. Then
they stop talking prizk up their cars
and begin electioneering. They do
not act a bit worse than the mIen do,
though, except that the men are not
quite. st nos. Ielycan't say ye
whether I am .a believer in woman
suffrage. One thing I have learned,
that women do take advantage or
their voting privilege. The registra
tion books of the last election show
that 44 per cent of the votes cas
were by- women.'' If Miss Sumnev's
renort'is favorable the leagu.e may
start a campaign for woman i suffrage
in New York.
Indian Giving Trouble.
Omaha. Neb., Special.-Word was

Loads of Passengers Dumped
Into Deep Water
WAS MOMENT OF WILD TERROR
Twisted From Track on Trestle Over
Thoroughfare inlet by Turned-in
Rail, Cars of Electric Train From
Camden Poise on Edge and Then
Drop 15 Feet into 30 Feet of Water
With Terrified Passengers.
Atlantic City. N. J., Special.-By
the wrecking of a three-coach elec
tric train on the West Jersey & Sea
shore Railroad Sunday afternoon at
least 50 passengers perished and the
first may reach the total of 73 when
all is known.
While crossing over a drawbridge
spanning the waterway known ase
"the Thoroughfare,' which separates
Atlantic City from the mainland, the
train left the track and plunged into
the water, with one or two. excep
tions, were drowned. Up to mid
night 25 bodies have been recovered
and it. is believed that at least 23,
and possibly 50, more bodies still are
in the submerged coaches.
The disaster, the worst that has
happened since the terrible Meadow
wreck of July 30, 1896, occurred at
half-past 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon.
The train, made up of three heavy
coaches, which left Camden at 1
o'clock in the afternoon carried at
least 88 passengers, as that number
of tickets are held by the conductor.
That official is uncertain. however,
just how many passengers were on
the train, and until all the bodies
have been taken from the submerged
cars, it will not be possible to give
the true figures of the dead.
Recuers Could Do Little.
The accident was witnessed by
many persons on shore and assistance
was promptly sent from Atlantic
City. Little could be done, however,
towards saving the lives of those in
prisoned in the submerged coaches.
The water at tie point where th&e
train plunged in was not deep enough
to eove-r the coaches at first. but as
they quickly seiled in the mud, and
as the tide rose. they were soon hid
den from sight except for the trolley
poles. Divers were sent down to try
to reach the dead bodies in the coach
es. but as darkness set in and as he
tide ran more swiftly. they were un
able for a long time to reach them.
Late in the evening a wreeking crew
arrived on the scene and with their
v~d and the use of a derrick, a dozen
or more bodies were taken out and
brought to the city. Of the 25 bod
ies. about 20) have been idenmified,
and it is believed no diiliculty will be
experienceed in est ablishing the iden

I. The preparation for the meal
(;s. 1'i-10). 17. "First day of the
feat." 'rhe 14th of Nisan was the
day of preparation. The celebration
continued until the 21st (Exod. 12:
I1X-20) "Of unleavened bread." So
Called because at this feast only un
leaovened bread was allowed. "Where
v ilt thou?" Jesus had no home of
his own, and the disciples knew that
sone place must be chosen at once.
"ithat we prepare." That which was
rf'quired consisted of a room fur
rished with table and couches: and
for food, unleavened bread, bitter
herbs and a paschal lamb, which
must be slain' in the temple between
3 and 5 o'clock, and cooked In a pri
I S. "Go into the city." Luke says
that Peter and John were sent. They
were now at Bethany and Jesus sends
them to Jerusalem. "To such a
man." It is probable that this meant .
some person with whom Christ was
well acquainted, and who was known
to the disciples. "Say unto him."
Say unto the master of the house,
"who was probably a disciple, but se
cretly, like many others, for fear of
the Jews (John 12:42); and this
may explain the suppression of his
name." "The Master saith." The
teacher saith. This may, or may not,
have identified Jesus. There was
great respect shown for rabbis and
they would be received gladly'in al
most any home. "My time is -at
hand." The time of His death, else
where called His hour. - "At thy
house." This message seems stran
ger to us than it would to the man,
even if he had little knowledge of
Jesus. During the week of the Pass
over, hospitality was recognized as a
aniversal duty in Jerusalem.
19. "Did as Jesus had appointed."
They obeyed in every particular and
found everything to happen as Jesus
had foretold. Those who would have
Christ's presence with them must
itrictly observe His instructions.
IT. Events during the eating of
the Passover (vs. 20-25). ~20. "The
even was come." It was probably
while the sun was beginning to de
.line in the horizon that Jesus and
the disciples descended once more
over the Mount of Olives into the
oly city. "Sat down." Or reclined.
,ccording to the custom of that time.
21. "As they did eat." The Pass
Dver, -not the memorial supper. He
.asted first the unleavened bread and
'he bitter herbs, before the lamb was
served. "One of you." How sad!
Dne who is pledged to be faithful and
true. Jesus was troubled in .'spirit
(John 13:21). "Shall betray Me."
Judas had already agreed to tbetray
im. This announcement would give
him an opportunity to repent, but
this he did not do.
22. "Exceeding sorrowful." Be
muse He was to be betrayed, and be
=use one of their number was about
o perform the dastardly act. "Lord.
s it I?" This in the original has a
stronger. negative meaning than in
he English. Surely, niot L. Lord?
23. "He that dippeth." It was.at
this point that Peter beckoned to
John, who was leaning on Jesus' bo
som, to ask Jesus who itashould be
(John 13: 22-27); and Jesus proba
bly gave them a sign by which they
knew. 24. "Goeth." To the cross
ind to death. "As it Is written." In
such scriptures as Isaiah 53. "Woe
anto that man." A sad statement oft.
i terrible fact. Jesus had previously
told of His betrayal and-death. "Had
aot been bern." This was the last
wvarning to Judas, who still had an
apnortunity to repent.
25. "Is it I?" Judas tried to coy
er his hypocrisy ait wickedness by
?.sking this question. *"Thou hast
said." A Hebrew form of affirma
tion meaning yes, you are the one.
III. The memorial supper (vs. 26
li0). 26. "Were eating." Toward
the close of the Passover feast.
'Took bread." Took the loaf or thin
make of unleavened bread, which was
before Him. "Blessed It." Invoked.
the blessing of God upon it. "Brake
it." The act was designed to shadow
rorth the vwounding, piercing and
br'eaking of Christ's body on the
Dross. "This is My body." This
bread renresents My body. 27. "The
2u." The word "wine" is not used,
but "cup," "the fruit of the vine" (v.
29), so that "unfermented grape
juice was all that was used." "Gave
thanks." It was like giving thanks
over the shedding of His own blood.
28. "i[s My blood." Represents
My blood. "'Of the covenant" (R.
V.) It was an old covenant renewed,
and thus a new promise to men that
Goed would provide a great salvation.
"For many." For all mankind. "Re
mission of sins." "For the taking
away of sins." But although the
atonement is made, yet no man's sins
are taken away only as he repents
and turns to God. 29. "Not drink'
benceforth." He would not eat and
drink with them again before He
died: this was their last meal togejth
ez. "WVhen 1 drink it new." When I
drink new wine-"wine of a different
nature from this"-in the kingdom
of Go~d. H~ere is a pledge to them
that they would again assemble, in
the kingdom of glory, to commemor
ate the triumph of Christ and His
kingdom. 20. "Sung an hymn."
Pronbably Psalm 118, which was a!.
ways sung at the close of the pasebal
It'.st. At this time .Jesus spoke the
wVords recorded by .john, in chapters
I 5-1'7. "Into the Mount o: Olives."
\~\ "'-re .Jesus suffered In the garden
et. G'-thsemanie and was betrayed.
HAY ON THF. ONE-MAN FARM.
On the one-man farm muuc'h plan
ning is nece'ssa ry to enable the single
sair of hands to do the work in a
rush of the hay season without loss
of time. A Michigan farmer has con
trIved a system which cnables him to
use modern machinery without hired
help. He mows the grass with a five
root mower, stirs it with a tedder and
then runs a side delivery rake, which
leaves the hay in light windrows.
These win-drows are raked together
just before drawlng. making heavy
;indrows. Then. comes the hay load
er. which is attached to the rear
f the wagon and pitches up the hay
when the cart is d'iven forward. The
ray is loaded on slings en the wagon
so that when it reaches the barn It
may be unloaded by horse pover.
The farmer's little daughter drives
the team when her father is loading
:he hay and drives the horse when
the load is bein'g taken off at the
barn. In the barn a pole is fixed onl
i pivot, .so that the man on the load
tan swing around the sling of har
to its' desired place by pushing or
anlling the nnle.
