Detroit, Xov. 28.— passenger trains
on the Wabash railroad, one going west
and the other east, met in a frightful col
lision while going at almost full speed,
one mile east of Seneca. Mich., a village
eleven miles west of Adrian, shortly after
7 o'clock last night. Both trains were
wrecked in the dreadful impact entailing
a tremendous loss of life, estimated from
SO to 100. The list of injured probably
will reach 125. »
The west-bound train was known as
No. 13 and was a regular which, besides
its regular coaches had several coaches
filled with Italian emigrants going west
from Xew York. The east-bound train
was known as Xo. 4, the "Continental
Limited." It was a vestibuled train con
sisting of a baggage car, combination
coach and sleepers.
The cause of the wreck was a mis
reading of orders by Engineer Strong of
the "Continental Limited." The order, it is
claimed,read: "Pass at Seneca," but Strong
understood it to read "Sand Creek." The
conductor of the train did not know that
the engineer had misunderstood the or

was running rapidly, the conductor put
on the air brakes himself, but it was

TO SEE CONGRESS
The Governor Will Carry the
Fight to Washington
From Th* Journal Bureau, Boom 45, Vast
Washington, Xov. 28.— is said that
Governor Van Sant intends to visit Wash
ington this winter, for the purpose of
trying to encourage congress to take
some sort of action looking to the
prevention of gigantic railway corpora
tions such as the Northern Securities
It is not known whether he will be in a
position to suggest any special line of ac

the purpose of securing all possible side
lights of a legal nature.
The governor has been Intending for
several months to spend some time In
Washington during the session of con
gress now about to begin. His visit will
attract much more attention than other
wise would have been possible, owing to
the advertising which he has had in the
east and over the country generally as
the prime mover in the fight against the

Washington, Nov. 28. — is becoming
generally known that the department of
justice stands ready to co-operate with
Governor Van Sant and the state of Min

Northern Securities company. The depart

soon as charges and specifications from

The officers of the department here are
busy looking up law and will be prepared
to move as soon as formally requested to
do so. Their investigations will cover the
entire subject of trusts for the purpose,
later on, of enlightening the president
and congress, should a serious attempt be
made to enact legislation. The Sherman
law is being examined sentence by sen
tence in connection with the several de
cisions of the supreme court, and in like
manner the interstate commerce law is
being overhauled. Some of this work was
done hurriedly several weeks ago for the
benefit of President Roosevelt when he
was working on his message, but it was
no such job as that which is now on.
Doubt is expressed by some officials in
the department of Justice as to whether
any case could be made against what is
known as the steel trust in view of the
supreme court decision in. relation to the
sugar trust some years ago, in which the
latter was declared not to be a combina

of the department of justice.
It &s said at the department that
uothing has been received from Governor
Van Sant, but if the report is correct that
he and Attorney General Douglas have
discovered that the state laws are inade

Former President's Family
Skeleton Taken Out of

From The Journal Bureau, Boom *S. Post
Building, Washington. .
Washington, Nov. 28.— E. F. Tibbetts,
private secretary to Former President"
Harrison and a witness to his will, has
arrived in Washington to press a bill to
pension Mrs. Harrison the same as the
wives of other ex-presidents at $5,000 per
annum. The bill will be introduced by
Senator Fairbanks and will be strongly
opposed by everybody whom Russell B.
Harrison and the McKees can control.
The family skeleton is again to be taken
out of the closet and exhibited to the gaze
of the country. The point will be made
by the disgruntled son and daughter that
Mrs. Harrison was never the wife of a
president and therefore Is not entitled to
a pension. Mr. Tibbetts says regarding
General Harrison's understanding of the

his death in conformity to the usual custom;
but that if he thought it wouldn't he would

the property. The $5,000 when voted will be
held for the benefit of his little daughter,

What Will Be Attempted in
THE POLITICAL RESULTS
Protectionists Don't Care if Repub-
licans Lose the House.
WHAT LEGISLATION IS IN SIGHT
"Lone Session" to Open Next Monday
the Host Important lor
From The Journal Bureau,-Boom 4G, Poet
Washington Nov. 28.—The first session
of the fifty-seventh congress will begin
its work on Monday of next week at noon.
It will adjourn somewhere the middle of
next summer, not earlier than July, and
probably not later than the early days of
August. It will be known as the "long
session," in contradistinction to the sec
ond, or "short session," which will meet
in December. 1902, and adjourn by limi
tation on the 4th of the following March.
The session ,to open next -Monday will
probably be the most important in a gen
eration, if a small part happens of all
that has been outlined as likely to be done
by it. It will be important politically, in
that it will make the issues on which the
next two campaigns will be fought; it will
be important economically, because of the
many- new subjects of legislation which
it will Take up.
Politics of 'the Session. -
First, as to the politics of the session.
There is now no expectation that. the re
publican-party, at present in control of
both branches of congress, will satisfy
the demands of the middle west for tariff
revision or recoprocity treaties. This
failure to act will throw the ; political
pendulum back to the other side of the
arc, where it was last in and before 1892,
during .the discussion of the McKinley bill.
It .will make the tariff and related ques-
tions—reciprocity, Babcockism, . wider
markets for American products—the prin
cipal issue of the campaign next year;
and, unless the results of that campaign
are disappointing to tariff ' reformers,
make them paramount, also, in ,the presi
dential of 1904. . ,
The ultra protection east, solidly re
publican, will take this position of inac
tion deliberately, with a full view of all
the possible political consequences. Pos
sibly it may throw a sop to the' west in
.the way of lower sij^r anil tobacco duties
oil imports from Cuba, and it may try to
prevent the tariff from appearing in poli
tics by referring the tariff and reciprocity
questions to a commission, as recom
mended by the recent reciprocity conven
tion this city; but it will do nothing
substantial, or show that it seriously in
tends to satisfy western republican de
What Will the Harvest Be
What .the ultimate effect of this policy
will be cannot be measured at this time.
In 1892, and while McKlnleyism was an
issue, the middle west, theretofore reli
ably republican, swung away from its po
litical moorings; some states gave demo
cratic majorities for the first time in
many years; the rest considerably re- j
duced their republican margins; every
where there was unrest and discontent.
Subsequent everfta sustained the conten
tions of the McKinley policy, in the main,
and so this unfriendly feeling did not be
come permanent. In 1894 the larger num
ber of the middle west states came back
to their republican allegiance, and with
the beginning of the free silver craze,
1896, became more strongly republican
than before. In 1900 this attitude was
practically unchanged, save that it was
slightly intensified; the middle west giv
ing the largest republican majorities and
pluralities in its history.
But silver is now dead. Bryan as a
political factor has died with it, and the
democratic party is coming back into the
hands of Its old-time leaders, the men
who controlled it during the days of
Cleveland's political ascendency. These
men are naturally free traders, and every
campaign which they have directed has
had the tariff as a principal Issue. Next
year they will take advantage of repub
lican inaction and make the tariff again
an issue. They will present the case se
ductively, and the middle west is again
in danger of going astray. Indeed, there
are not wanting expert politicians in both
parties who pretend to see a condition
of affairs which will be much worse than
the 1892 condition. They pretend to be
lieve that there is danger that the mid
dle west will cut away from New Eng
land and the east, splitting the republi
can party in twain. Without saying that
there is any likelihood that such a state
of affairs will result from congressional
inaction this winter, it is very evident
that middle west conditions are very un
satisfactory from the orthodox republi
can point of view, and are tending In the
The foregoing are some of the consid
erations which will make the session of
congress now about to open of the first
importance politically. The republican
party will deliberately and with full
knowledge of the possible results, pre
sent to the democratic party, on a gold
platter, its 1902 and 1904 platforms. New
England would rather lose the fifty
seventh .congress to the republicans than
to revise the tariff or ratify the pending
treaties, and it figures that the flurry
will be only temporarily, and that by
1904 the sailing will agin be smooth.
Now, as to the proposed legislation of
the session. To begin with, the national
expenditures are to be radically Increased.
The first steps will probably be taken
along several new lines. Among the sev
eral items of proposed increased expendi
ture— of them will probably not pass
are these: Isthmian canal. Pacific cable,
ship subsidy, irrigation, rural free de
livery. The most likely to fall in this
list is the ship subsidy. A start will be
made towards building the canal, whose
total cost will be almost $200,000,000. This
enormous sum will not all be appropri
ated in one year, but the canal will ap
pear regularly for years in appropriation
bills for sums varying from $10,000,000 to
$25,000,000. The appropriations will be
larger than that, If It is really the In
tent of the government to finish the work
in ten years. The Pacific' cable appropria
tions will also stretch over a series of
years. The initiation of an irrigation
policy will mean a steady drain on the

Champaign, 111., Nov. 28.—Thanksgiving
Day broke clear, frosty and fine, just the
kind of weather for north star football
players, had they their own gridiron to
play on. With the Champaign gridiron
it is different. The gridiron is one of the
water-shed type, high up in the center
and decided slope toward either end. The
ground is clay, which is frozen to a depth
of three or four inches. Under the warm
sun the top softens and becomes slippery,
so that dodging or turning is difficult. i
Still, weight ought to offset local ground
wisdom to some extent and leave the
gophers without serious handicap.

Gophers Fit as Fiddles.
The Minnesota team reached Champaign
yesterday, fit and ready for the fray. The
Champaign boy are as fit. Champaign
residents who bet are willing to take even
risks that their boys would win. There
were few bets made, but those were placed
at even money.
After the boys had had dinner and taken
a short rest, they went out to the grounds
and ran through the signals. Supper fol
lowed and the boys were put to bed early,
while Professor Carcofini, the trainer,
kept guard below stairs to see that they
spent the night undisturbed.
There was little excitement about the
hotels last evening; Champaign is evident

Rooters Are Few,
Though prospects were good for a hot
game the people of Champaign and vicin

minutes before the opening of the game at
2 o'clock not a single rooter had appeared
for either side. There were no Minneso
tans present to root and the Illinois folk
present were either not onto the art or
too recently from the Thanksgiving board
to feel disposed to root.
The absence of Minnesotans was
noticeable. The football • boys had heard
that a special train was coming loaded
with 300 of Minnesota's best rooters.
They were delighted and inquired eagerly
when the train arrived, and were greatly
disappointed when a Journal dispatch
informed them the train wasn't coming.
