Engineer Forgot OrdorB.
According to tho local office of tho
Missouri Paolflc the engineer of tho
freight had forgotton his orders. He
had been ordered to wait on a oldlng at
Knobnostor, Just east of Warrensburg,
but neglected to do bo. Tho trains mot
at a sharp curve.
Running- at High Speed.
Both trains were running at a good
jrato of speed when the collision oo
ourred. Dawn had hardly begun to
break and neither crew was aware of the
approaoh of tho other train until they
were almost upon ach other. Tho Im
pact of the collision was terrlflo. The
sleeping passengors were hurled in
Killed in First Coach.
Tho most of the killed wero In the for
ward coach, which was well crowded
with passengers. The opot Where the
wreck occurred wao in a narrow cut and
this fact with the darkness added to the
difficulty of the situation. The greatest
confusion ensued after the first lull fol
lowing the craBh and the groans of the
injured wero added to the escaping
steam of the wrecked locomotives.
Rescue "Work Slow.
It was some time before the doad and
injured could bo extricated from tho
debris. The dead were carried up the
track and laid in rows in an open space
until the relief train arrived, while tho
Injured were cared for as well as could
be. It was a long time before the names
of the victims could be secured, and the
nature of the injuries was known. Up to
9:30 no list had been received at the lo
cal office of the Missouri Pacific.
Llet on a Curve,
The scone of the wreck was on the
down grade, on cither side of which
there was a steep rise. Both trains had
put on extra steam to carry them up
tho opposite hill, and when they met at
the curve at tho lowest point they were
running at a terrific rate.
Coach Cut in Twain.
The passenger train was made up of
three coaches and a Pullman, with no
baggage car, the front coach being next
to the tender. The freight train was a
heavy one. WHien the trains met the
heavy freight train pushed the pas
senger engine back Into tho first coach.
The tender of tho passenger englno
literally cut tho coach in two in tho
center, and never stopped until it had
ploughed Itself half way through the
car and Its passengers.
Bodies Horribly Mutilated.
Half a dozen who were not killed out
right were so terribly injured that they
died before they could be removed from
the debris. Many of the dead wero al
most unrecognizable. Arms and legs
were dismembered In several caseB and,
together with pieces of wreck
age and baggage, were tumbled togeth
er In a confused mass of bleeding hu
The Pullman remained upright, and
none of Its occupants was hurt beyond
sustaining a severe shaking up.
Sight a Horrible Ono.
So tightly were tho tender of tho pas
senger engine and tho first coach
wedged together that it will take un
usual efforts to separate them. Today
the engine stands backed into the
ccach, the front of which rears up
above it, the clothing of some of the
victims clinging to its Jagged ends and
blood spattered over it, a ghastly mon
ument to the dead.
Train Crew, Savo One, Escape.
The train crew, with the exception of
Brakeman SIdel. escaped miraculously,
the engineer and fireman sustaining
only minor hurts.
The injured were taken to SedaJIa,
and the dead to Warrensburg. At War
rensburg the Coroner Immediately set
about making preparations for holding
Conductor Ron for Help.
Tho passenger conductor, E. I.
Barnes, ran all the way to Warrens

With the Russians now on tho offens

sitions to tho north of Liao Yawr.
Kuropatkin Moves Slowly.
Kuropatkln's advanco is being mado
with extremo slowness and delibera
tion, and it is now known that tho
movement against Bentslaputze has
been under way since October 4. Tho
now situation causes St. Potersburg to

The mystification of tho last ten days

up by the knowledge that the Russian

The capture of Bentslaputze, which
was strongly fortified and where It was

in person, Is officially confirmed. The

Six Miles Apart
A high officer of the general staff In
formed the Associated Pres3 today that
Kuropatkin is prepared to advance
with great cure, but when the main
collision will occur will depend on cir
cumstances, the movements of great
bodies of men being slow operations.
Heavy fighting Is hardly likely before a
week at the earliest.
"Only six miles separate the advance
lines," said the officer referred to, "nnd
an advance or counter advance might
precipitate a preliminary artillery en
casement at any moment."
It is now evident that Field Marshal
Oyama, aware that Kuropatkin Is pre
paring to strike, instead of extending
hlielf for the big flanking movement
east so much talked of, has recognized
tho 'necessity of meeting the Russian
advance by fortifying his positions to

Tho American party county and leg
lslatlvo ticket, which appears In the
foregoing, wn3 nominated yesterday
afternoon In mass convention at the
Salt Lake theater.
And what a convention it wast
It so completely eclipsed anything of
tho kind held In Salt Lake City this
year as to make of that fact a mattor
for general comment.
Not many persons oxpected such a
general outpouring on a busy Monday
afternoon. The day was admittedly an
unfavorablo one. Business and work
ing men nnd busy housewives were
obliged to make a sacrifice to attend
tho convention yesterday But they
were there, hundreds of them, filling the
mnln floor of tho big theater to full
ness and hundreds finding seats In the
balconies and on the stage.
Unlike a delegate convention, tho
people wero there because they de
sired to go. They wero not delegated
nor directed to attend save by the same
motive of the mind and heart that
made the American party an immediate
force simultaneous with the announce
ment of Its birth.
A Marvel in Attendance
This volunteer attendance on a busy
day was not the most noteworthy feat
ure of the mass convention. The earn
estness of the people the cordlnllty
with which they received thoso who
were the principal actors was as strik
ing as was the numbers.
They listened with eagerness and
with understanding; they applauded
tho convention's work and the utter
ances of the speakers spontaneously.
Friends to the American pariy who
were there were there to help'thc Am
erican party organization. CurloBlty
iirr.w n. hundred, nerhnns. who dpslrprf
to know what an American party con
vention would do and what American
party speakers would say, but the great
majority who participated In the con
vention arc supporters of the move
ment. They were In hearty nccord
with the convention's proceedings.
County Chairman George L, Nye and
the convention chairman, P. J. Daly,
each well-known and reputable citi
zens who afilllalo with different Na
tional parties, spoke briefly and were
listened to with marked attention. Each
recited telling truths concerning local
conditions and were liberally applaud
ed. Mrs. Nello Plnkerton Moore, one of
Salt Lake's most popular singers, whoso
volco Is full of sweotness.j thrilled tho,
convention with an exceptionally flno'
rendition of "The Star Spangled Ban
ner," and of "The Red, Whlto and
Blue" In response to an encore.
Tho Utah Stato band was also pres
ent with somo fine muslo, and the Am
erican Party Fife and Drum corps
aroused enthusiasm on the stroet.
Cannon's Great Speech.
Senator Frank J. Cannon attondod
the convention as tho principal spoak
er nnd he did himself and his party
Frank J. Cannon, as all Utah knows,
never disappoints a meeting. The
fire-away of his oratory, tho gift of lan-6-uago
which long ago permitted him
to tako rank with the best speakers
in the country, novor falls to plooso
his auditors, no matter how little or
how creat may bo the acceptableness
of his sentiments.
For Sonator Cannon words are nimble
sorvltorB. Ho employs them as a
skilled player uses tho kojTi of an in
strument. They aro never eluslvo.
Words that make senee and that aro
musical are always in his roach, and

Great Day for Now Party.
Monday was a groat day in tho his

Sonntor Cannon sounded a koynoto In
a speech full of sense and patriotic
fervor. And the big audience accept

It was a common expression that
Senator Cannon's speech mado votes

ing with it
The county and city tickets aro mado
up of men. according to the general
opinion of the new party's friends, who
are representative citizens, and who
will make good officials if elected.
Monday's convention was a good
day's work, and that the people of Salt
Lako county will rally to the ticket by
thousands Is a growing conviction.

When the curtain at the Salt Lake jll
Theater arose, promptly at 2 o'clock, it jl
disclosed on the stage the officials of
the American party county committee j
and the members of tho Utah State
band. The band immediately struck
up "American Republic," amid the jH
oncers of tho American audience which S
filled the lower floor and the flrBt bal-
cony. In the audience were nearly as ,
many women as men. It was an audi
ence representative of the citizenship
and wealth of Utah, and in the mass of ;
faces was depicted an earnestness of
purpose such as is seen only when pub- ,
lie feeollng is stirred to the depths. ( ,
Tho wall space at the back of. the ,
stage was entirely filled by two huge , ( tH
streamers which bore in large letters .
the, following quotations: !
