Number of Pensioners at Present
on the Rolls Is 960,012.
Special to tho Kecord-Uniox.
Wabhinotos, Sept. 22.—The repeal
mon in the Senate are still hopeful of
reaching a vote at a comparatively early
day, and noue of them place the time be
yond the lirst week in October. It will
le observed that this will be in time to
get the bill out of (he way for the Federal
elections bill, If that bill should come
over from the House of Representatives
on the ;sth of October, as it probably will.
They say, however, even in case tie
Federal elections bill should reach the
Senate before ihe financial bill is out of
the way, there would be no danger of dis
placing the latter measure.
The silver Senators believe an agree
ment was reached to-day which will
inure to their benefit, and are very much
pleased witli it. 1 bey are determined to
hold on until it can be ascertained
whether the elections bill can betaken
up in the Senate to the displacement of
the silver bill. It is understood the
agreement is lor only a week, but it is
presumed ii necessary it will be renewed
at the expiration of that tune.
There is considerable talk on the floor
of the Senate regarding the appointment
oi .1. Van Allen as L'muassador to Itaiy,
and while the appointment has not been
before the Senate a BUflicieut length of
time to permit a thorough canvass of its
ntness, the sentiment so far developed is
certainly adverse to Van Alien, and it
has become evident that his continuation
will be strongly oppose-1.
The Senate in executive session to-day
confirmed the nomination of John Bal
iour H. Hemingway to be United States
Attorney for .New Mexico.

and 11 oust*.
Washington, Sept. 3£.— In the Senate
Allen (Fop.) of Nebraska introduced a
bill making the dollar .which maybe
coined of 412 A grains of silver or 25 S-1U
grains of gold) a unit of value. The bill
also repeals the Sherman Act, which pro
vides that owners of silver may deposit
it in the Mint, which, less 20 per cent, for
seigniorage to be coined and put into the
Treasury, shall be coined into standard
dollars for their benefit
Mitchell of Oregon introduced a bill
appropriating $375,000 for the construc
tion of two steam revenue cutters for the
Tho resolution of Platt of Connecticut
for a cloture rule was then taken up.
Wolcott of Colorado spoke in favor of
bringing tho question to a vote, though
opposed to cloture, as the only way of
determining whether or not tho Senate
wanted to stifle debate. If it failed to
pass, criticisms on the opponents of re
peal must cease.
Teller of Colorado occupied the balance
of the lime until 2 o'clock in a speech
against the proposed change in the rules.
The repeal bill was then taken up and
George of Mississippi concluded his
speech begun on \\ ednesdav against the
Hansbrough of North Dakota then ad
dressed tho Senate in opposition to repeal.
•Stewart of Nevada followed and pro
ceeded to argue that gold had risen in
value, while silver remained a stable
measure of value.
When Stewart sat down Voorhees said:
"! may say that a consultation has taken
place this afternoon between friends and
opponents of the pending measure, which
resulted in an agreement as to the hours
which we will occupy in debate. With
out going into details. 1 am warranted in
moving that on Monday and after the
hour of meeting shall be 11 o'clock and
tne adjournment will take place at (>,
where there is no objection, and the Chair
has declared it so erdered."
Yoorhees then moved an executive
session, after which the Senate adjourned.
IN THE HOUSE.
Washington, Sept. 22.— 1n the House
the report of the Committee on Accounts,
abolishing clerks to unimportant com
mittees, was agreed to.
Loud of California, rising to a question
of privilege, called the atteution of the
Hoime to the fact that two resolutions of
inquiry, whicli he introduced over one
week ago, had not been reported to the
llou.se. The first was a resolution call
ing upon the Attorney-General for in
structions given the United States Dis
trict .Judges and United States Marshals
i elating to the Geary Chinese Exclusion
Act. Loud explained that he had pur
sued an unusual course in calling this
resolution as a privileged question, be
cause of the near approach of possible
legislation on the subject [the Everett
bill], and the House had the right to
know what steps had been taken to en
ihe present Exclusion Act. Resolu
tions of inquiry addressed to heads of de
partments, under the rules, must be re
ported to the House within one week.
After some discussion, participated in
by Oates, Springer and McCreary, the
Chair held that Loud's question w^as
The previous question on the resolution
•was ordered. Agreed to.
The other resolution calling upon the
Secretary of the Treasury for instructions
forwarded to Collectors of Customs and
other officials of the department with
reference to the enforcement of the Geary
law; also, for information as to the num
ber of Chinese in the country, the num
ber deported and tho number registered
under the Act, was also agreed to.
The House then adjourned.

LORD DUN RAVEN'S YACHT.
The Valkyrie, Which Will Compete for
the American Cup, Arrives.
New York, Sept. 22. — Lord Dun
raven's yacht, the Valkyrie, to contest in
the international race for the America's
cup, for whose safety much anxiety has
been felt, arrived this morning. The vessel
was greeted with noisy demonstrations
by the flotilla of yachts and other craft in
the bay. BIS
The yacht sailed from Southampton
August 21st. She was delayed by head
winds and high seas, but came through
stanchly, without accident.
As the Valkyrie swung at anchor after
her arrival it could be seen to the average
eye that she was decidedly a compromise,
and that Watson had . taken a large leaf
out of the books of the American design
ers. She looked like a compromise be
tween a developed cutter, as shown by
the Thistle, and newer ideas brought out
by Herreshoff. She resembles no other
; yacht which has come to this country
I from England. She seems rather to re

DESERTING THE UNITED PRESS.
Members of the Associated Press Have
No Use lor Its Service.
Chicago, Sept. 22.—Out of sixty news
papers, representing the full membership
in the Associated Press east of the Rocky
Mountains and west of the Alleghany
Mountains, all but seven have already
notified the General Manager that they
have severed all business and news rela
tions with the United Press, leased wire
or other telegraph service of that organi
zation. At the close of the present week
they will have absolutely ceased at the
cities of St. Paul, Minneapolis, Kansas
City, Denver, Galveston, Houston and
Dallas, which, in addition to notices
served west of Pittsburg, leaves that or
ganization with a net loss in revenue
formerly obtained by their newspaper
connections of $100,000 a year. Advices
received by tho Associated Press from the
East are to the effect that the principal
papers are arranging to close permanent
contracts with the Associated Press. All
allies of news associations in tho West
have given notice of the dissolution of
their relations to the United Press.

SEVERAL PERSONS INJURED.
A Meeting of the American Protetiye
Association Ends In a Riot.
Kansas City, Sept. 22.—A meeting of
the American Protective Association, the
anti-Catholic Society, to-night terminated
in a riot, in which several persons were
injured. Many members carried revol
vers, and some marched to the hall with
shotguns and rifles on their shoulders.
Twenty patrolmen were sent to preserve
j the peace. hen the meeting ended a
j mob attacked the members as they filed
I out of the hall, throwing rocks and

railroad detective named Brown. He
I showed his badge to the police, and was

drawing a revolver, he prepared to de
feud himself. One of the "mob named
O'Connor lalso drew a revolver. He and
Brown opened lire simultaneously, and
each tired two shots. O'Connor received
one bullet in the thumb. Brown escaped

NOT A MONOMETALLISM
Cleveland's Position as Stated by Gov
ernor Jones of Alabama.
New York, Sept. 22.—President Cleve
land has taken occasion to deny that he is
a monometallism and to declare that
he is in favor of the utilization of silver
so far as it can possibly bo done with
safety to sound currency. This state
ment regarding the President's position
was made by Governor Thomas J. Jones
of Alabama. Although Governor Jones
admitted that the President had said
much beside on the silver question, he
said he did not feel at liberty to make any
statement public. Governor Jones said
he did not think the President or any
body else could tell just now how Con
gress is going to vote on the silver
New Silver Dollar.
St. Louis, Sept. 22.— A special to the
Republic from Bonham, Texas, says a
syndicate including prominent men of
Texas, Colorado, Missouri and Kansas is
being formed to coin silver into dollars of
Mexican shape at the rate of $100,000 per
month or more, if the Legislatures of
those States will declare such coin legal
tender. It is claimed that no individual
or corporation is prohibited from coining
silver into standard dollars, provided the
shape of such coins is not the same as
coins issued by the United States Govern
ment. Citizens of California issued hexa
gon fifty-dollar gold pieces in the fifties,
and no ono disputed their right.
Tin Plate Industry.
Washington, Sept. 22.— 1t is expected
that the Treasury Department will make
public in a few days the tin plate report
for the fiscal year ending June 30th. The
result by the new rule, counting only tin
Elate both made and dipped in the
United States, according to the recent
ruling of Secretary Carlisle, shows the
American production considerably short
of the amount required by the McKinley
law to keep the duty in effect after
October 1, 1887. -■ ■ .
Census Bureau Report.
Washington, Sept. 22.—The annual
report of Superintendent Robert P.
Porter of the Census Bureau was sub
mitted to the Secretary of the Interior
to-day. The disbursements of the bureau
during the last year amounted to §9,468,
- Eight regular bulletins were issued
and 14,500 pages of matter relating to the
census printed. The special report on
irrigation is completed. The total num
ber of mortgages in the United States is
shown to be 4,903,401.
The Centralis Train-Robbers.
Centkalia (111.), Sept. 22.—The report
that Hartor, one of the three robbers who
held up the Illinois Central vestibule in
this city Wednesday evening, had been
caught was incorrect. Harter is supposed
to be hiding in St. Louis. The two cap
tured bandits, Jones and O'Dwyer, have
waived a preliminary examination, and
will bo tried at the January term of the
Circuit Court. " • ■'
More Gold May be Exported.
New York, Sept. 22.—Foreign bank
ing houses will not admit that there is
any chance for immediate export of gold,
but other persons say that if tho rate of
exchange continues to advance the possi
bility of exportations will very quickly
become a certainty. According to well
informed bank presidents the bank state
ment to-morrow will be a very favorable
one. - - :

Frightful Accident on the Wabash
at Kingsbury, Ind.
A VESTIBULE TRAIN CRASHES INTO
Passenger Coaches and Sleepers are
Crushed Into Splintered Timbers-
Two Giant Locomotives Dismantled
and Literally Welded Together—
'Twelve People Killed and a Score
of Others Seriously Injured—The
Accident Due to tho Carelessness
of a Brakoman.
Special to the Record-Union.
KnfGSBTJHY (Ind.), Sept. 22.—Twelve
bloody objects, some torn and mangled
beyond the semblance of humanity, and
a score of bleeding and bruised victims,
such are the awful results of this morn
ing's horror occurring at this little village
on the Detroit division of the Wabash
Railway. Crushed and splintered tim
bers and broken truss rods, warped and
fractured trucks two giant locomotives
dismantled and literally welded together,
attest in fearful fatality the awful results
of one man's carelessness. The calamity
was directly attributable to BrakemJtn
Herbert Thompson's carelessness. lie
has disappeared, and all efforts to find
him have thus far been vain.
The story of the wreck is as follows:
Vestibule train No. do, from Detroit to
Chicago, was running iv two sections,
and duo to pass this station at 4:40 a. it
Fast freight No. i>2 was on a siding here
to let No. "»5 pass. The first section of
No. oo passed at &16, and by whistle
called the attention of the freight crew to
tho second section. The engineer replied,
but it seems Brakeman Thompson did
not notice the signal and went ahead to
open the switch for No. 1»2 to leave. He
had hard*ly done this before the second
section of No. -x> was seen bearing down.
Thompson seemed to be paralyzed.
Swerving to the left the ponderous mass
of steel drawing its precious load lunged
heavily into the waiting freight train with
a horrible <r;*sh.
The result of the crash was fearful, and
the scone that ensued awful. Nearly all
the passengers were asleep, and the sud
denness of the crash so dazed the un
fortunates for a few minutes that all was
| still save for the escaping steam, but soon
j the agonized screams of the wounded and
I dying rent the air. A few uninjured had
i presence of mind to make an effort to
rescue the imprisoned victims, but with
the arrival of a number of resident* tho
work of releasing the hapless victims
was soon under way. Owing to the
! huge mass into which the wreck was
piled, it was a prodigious undertaking,
and it was some hours beforo the last of
j the living was removed and the dead
finally extricated, only after the arrival
of a crew with apparatus.
The dead, as fast as taken from the
wreck, were laid beside the track, pend
ing removal to undertakers, while the
injured were cared for at the nearest
residences. Snch of tho wounded as
would consont wore taken to the Wabash
Railway Hospital at Peru, lud.
The list of dead is as follows: Charles
Bierbe, San Francisco, 2'J j-ears old, un

Frauk P. Drew, who was among tho
injured, was in tho smoker. How he
crawled out of tho wreck he does not
know. He says he assisted in pulling
out two women, then, exhausted^ fainted
on the bank. Ho is able to sit up, but his
face is a terrible sight.
William Seidol ol San Francisco had an
almost miraculous escape from a horrible
death. He was sitting near the middle of
i the smoker, and in the same seat as his
friend Charles Bierbe. "Charlie and I
were about half asleep," said Seidel to
! day. "when the crash came. I could not
imagine what had happened till I felt
myself thrown high in the air, and then
struck the ground fully sixty feet from
where our coach was, and found myself
badly bruised, but not seriously hurt. I
at once began looking for Bierbe, and
soon saw him taken from under the
ruins crushed frightfully. Ho was in
stantly killed. I think I was thrown \
through the roof of the car. My clothes I
were torn and my face scratched. 1 will

nAYTIAX WARSHIP WRECKED.
Only One Person Out of a Total of
Nrw York, Sept. 22.—The steamship
i Prinz Whiiholm, from Port-au-Prince,
brings news of the foundering oil" Cape
Tiberon of the Haytian warship Alessan
dre Petion, with a crew of eighty men
and the following Haytian diplomats, en j
route to Santa Domingo to negotiato a
treaty: General iis mi, M. Cohen, Hay- J
Uan ex-Miuister to Mexico, and P. do j
Jeans, llajtian Ccnanl-GeneraL One
sailor was saved.
||The disaster occurred September *!th
about fifty miles south from Capo Tib
eron. The cruiser iu-d just been put into
commission. She left Port-au-Prince on
September 4th bound for San Domingo.
The suddenness and completeness of the
disaster, only one sailor escaping, makes
the ailair most serious. It is probablo
t hat the real cause of the wrecking of the
ship will never be known. According to
the testimony of the solo survivor, there
was absolutely no warning. Neither a
collision with any other vessel, a sub
merged coral reef nor storm can account
for the occurrence. The day was fair and
the passengers were enjoying themselves
in the cabin. Suddenly the vessel began
feThe officer of the watch ordered tho
men to pass the word in the cabins and
forecastle to reach tbe deck quickly and
jump overboard. It was already too late.
There was terrible confusion in the cabin
as tho panic-stricken passengers strug
gled to reach the deck. In one minute
from the time she began to sink the vessel
was entirely under water. One of tho
sailors, as the ship b^gan to sink under
him, snatched a pau- of oars from tho
lifeboat and threw himself into the water.
He canght a plank, OB which he drifted
for thirty-six hours with nothing to eat
or drink. He was picked up about fifty
miles southeast of Port Pument. For a
long time the castaway was unconscious
and could not speak.
The lost vessel was doubtless of the
mitrailleuse type of gunboats, so popular
with the Haytians.

was hanged here to-day for tho murder of j
Mrs. Price. She had married another j
man in preference to Bawden. and he
followed her to Eureka from El Dorado
County and shot her.
Before 1 o'clock this afternoon crowds
of people began to gather in the Court
house grounds and corridors of tho
building. Tho gallows for the execution
of tho condemned man had been erected
in a room between the Sheriff's office and

BURGLARS AT SANTA ROSA.
Attempt Matle to Enter tho RcsUlonco
of a Prominent Citizen.
Santa Rosa, Sept. 22.—1t was learned
to-day that about the time Special Officer
Johnson was having an exciting experi
ence with a burglar in the rear of J. M
Dickson A Co.'s store early Thursday
morning, an attempt was being made to
enter Mr. Williams' residence on College
J Avenue. Mr. Williams returned from
I the country the day before, and drew a
! sum of money from the bank and took it
homo with him. The supposition is that
the burglar saw him draw tho money,
and followed him and located the house.
j Lute in the night Mr. Williams was
i awakened by a sound at the window of
| another room. Seizing a revolver he
| went to investigate. As he approached
tho window he saw a man making off in
tho darkness. An examination of the
window showed that the man was cutting
j a hole in the giass just under the fasteu
' ing of the upper sash. Had he not been
'■ disturbed he would have effected an en
trance in a minute more. The police re
port a number of ex-convicts and gener
ally tough characters in the city, and the
citizens are on their guard.
