KNEW COLLISION OCCURRED.
Wrecking Crews and Itoctors Called
Before Trains Came Together.,
WARRENSBURG, Mo., Oct. 11. Tho
evidence before the Coroner's Jury,
which is investigating tho Missouri Pa
cific collision near here yesterday, when
twenty-nine lives wero lost and over
fifty persons injured, tends to fix the
responsibility upon the freight - crew,
three of whom went to sleep and failed
to know that the Ill-fated paoaenger had
not gone by before they started out
from Mont Sorrat. The examination of
W. W. McVev, night operator at Mont
Serrat, brought out the fact that the
train dispatcher at Sedalia ordered out
wrecking crewe, section men and
doctors before the two trains came to
gether. Julia A. Wood of Oxford, Kan., who
was injured ln the wreck, is not ex
pected to live. Others of the Injured
who were taken to the railway hospital
at Sedalia for treatment are progressing
favorably. Julia Woods's death would
make a tota.1 of thirty victims.
The crew of the extra freight Is held
responsible for the disaster by the
Coroner's jury, which returned a ver
dict tonight. The verdict charges the
crew with disobeying orders and with
being asleep at their post of duty. No
recommendation was made as, to lho
prosecution of the train crew.
Countv Prosecuting Attorney Mor
row said after the inquest that he
would Immediately begin the prosecu
tion of the persons charged with the
responsibility of the wreck by the
BOBBED DEAD COiTRADE.

fellow brakeman named Seldel, who
was killed. A blood-stained railroad

These are the namo of tho men elected
yesterday as members of tho board of di
rectors of tho Union Pacific railroad. Tho
meotlng was hold ln this city and 1,-ilO.SOJ
shares woro represented by proxies.
How Directors Aro Aligned.
Tho division of tho board is tho result
of Investigation of tho Interests of each,
mado after tho meeting Rockefeller has
been aligned in tho Gould column for
months past, and Frlck of Pittsburg Is
closoly allied with Rockcfellor. Stlllman
is tho president of tho City National bank
of New York, which is out and out a
Rookofollor or Standard Oil bank, and
Rogors Is pure and simple a Standard
Oil man. That thoy will contlnuo to work
with Gould scorns to bo the logical solu
tion of tho problem that has been agitat
ing railroad circles for so long o time. It
bears out what has bocn contained in
The Tribune that Rockefeller was buying
heavily of Union Paclflo and thnt. al
though ho wns friendly to tho Harrlman
interests, ho was still more frlondly to the
May Abandon Western Pacific.
Gould has always had a heavy interest
In Union Pacific. At ono tlmo tho family
absolutely controlled it. so It would bo no
great stop to again secure control Tho
fact that Gould haB been worsted at all
Harrlman gntownys and that tho former
Southern Pacific policy has been applied
to tho whole Harrhnan system. Is really
the causo of Gould organizing tho West
ern Pacific. Whether tho prosenco of
olght directors friendly to him ln tho Un
ion Pacific board will mean the abandon
ment of tho Western Pacific plans re
mains to bo aeon. Somo say that It will
bo at onco abandoned, but others say that
It Is still necessary for Gould to havo
hlB own line to San Francisco.
List Studied by Railroad Men.
Tho list of directors was studied by
soven of tho leading financial and railroad
men of the city yesterday, and the . ma
jority agreed that Gould has the eight,
taking Into consideration tho ono prcat
lnct that Rockcfellor has been with Gould
for some time past. Should this diagno
sis of tho directory prove to bo correct
tho Ogden galoway will be opened Imme
diately nnd Mr. Stubbs will at once Inau
gurate an entirely now policy in relation
to traffic, these questions being tho ones
on which Gould has mndo his complaints.
Change in Policy.
That Gould Js far stronger than ever In
Union Pacific' there Is no question, and
If he has the majority, as claimed. It will
mean a completo change In tho policy of
the road, although no change In the man
agement. Of lho directors, all save Smith repre
sent some great financial holdings or syn
dicate ln the East. Smith Is merely the
complimentary local director. The names
of tho fourteen will be found as directors
of the leading banks and trust compa
nies of Now York, as well as In tho rail
FLIRTING IN CHURCH.
One Clergyman Who Believes It Is
CHICAGO, Oct. 11. Flirting can bo
carried on In church to good advantage,
according to a statement Issued by tho
Rev. M. B. Williams, chairman of tho
committee on Sabbath observance of
the Rock River conference of the
Methodist Episcopal church.
"There iH no reason why young per
sons should not cultivate each other's
acquaintance from behind hymn
books." declared Mr. Williams. "Wo
aro glad to have them come to church
on any pretext. Flirting Is as good an
excuse as any. That Is how I first be
came Interested ln the church."
Frivolity during religious uervlce was,
he said, to be expected of Americana
But that Dome good was accomplished
even under those conditions, he de
clared, was indisputable. "The expecta
tion of 'seeing a young woman home'
has brought many a boy to church for
the first time," he yald; "amid the love
making thure io a chance for the re
ligious influence to steal in."
