Lord Playfair, who is an ardent imperial

Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 5. Alex Atkins, an
engineer on the Atlanta and West Point
railway, was killed In a collision this morn
ing one mile below Red Oak.
Atkins was engineer on the New York
and New-Orleans fast mall, which left here
at G o'clock this morning liftcen 'minutes
late. At East Point he received orders to
pass a northbound passenger train at Red
Instead of stopping at the station he ran
througli at forty miles an hour. Conducior
Law signalled the engineer to stop, but
Atkins paid no attention to the bell. Then
Law ran through the train nnd threw a
piece of coal over the tender to attract the
engineer's munition. Still Atkins kept on.
Law, who had signed, the orders at
East Point then cut the cars loose from
the tender. The engine sped on and 200
yards further crashed Into the approach
ing local train.
The automatic brakes on the fast mall
stopped the detached train and the pas
sengers escaped. Engiueer McDadc, of
the north-bound train, reversed his en

Atkins stuck to his engine and was ter
ribly crushed. He was not unconscious
at lirst though, and begged the train men
who went to work to rescue him to give
him something to relieve his agony. He
died three hours later.
A postal clerk named Boyd on the north
bound train was badly Injured but will
recover. It is presumed that Atkins got
mixed on his orders, as lie had lirst received
his instructions to pass the north-bound
train several miles below Red Oak.

Mrs. Ormlstoii Chant's Cause.
(Sppical Cable Letter to United Press.)
London, Oct. 5. With the growth of dis
trust In the Armenian propaganda, caused
by the reiiorts of responsible correspon
dents that tho stories of the outrages at
Sassoun and elsewhere were greatly ex
aggerated for political purposes, the pres
sure of strong party Influence on the
Salisbury government In favor of modifying
the demands which have been made oil
the Porte also Increases. Since the fall
of tho Liberal cabinet it has been an
open .ecret that Lord Itosebery threatened
thePorte that If the demands ot the Powers
were not accepted in a specified time two
ot the chief Turkish ports, presumably
Smyrna and Salonlea, would be seized and
the customs revenues sequestered.
The dispatch of the Earl of Kimbcrley to
this effect, while he was Secretary of State
for Foreign Affairs, exists in the archives
of the foreign office.
KIA.MIL PASHA'S APPOINTMENT.
Prime Minister Salisbury has from the
outset continued the policy of his pre
decessor. The presence of a British fleet
at Lemnos Is explained as confirming the
Intention of the government to occupy
Turkish porLs If the Porte should prove
defiant or should unduly delay the settle
ment of the question, but the uppolntrucnt
of Klamll Pasba as Grand Vizier, with
other indications that the Sultan desires
to satisfy the powers, has bbecked British
Representations have been sent to Lord
Salisbury from man j of his conservative
adherents advising him to follow the
traditional British policy of support of
Turkey. These representations arc llkely
to Induce Lord Salisbury to relax the
stringency of his demands. At any "rate,
Klnmil Pasha will be given time to show
his hand. During the sic years that he was
formerly Grand Vizier, that is from Sep
tember, 1SSD, to September, 1891, he
guided the Porte through a scries of
crises with the greatest skill.
He entered office as the supposed friend
et Russia, but he soon developed a ten
dency in favor of the triple alliance,
especially Germany, filling the adminis
trative posts whenever he could with Ger
mans, nnd granting concessions for public
Works to German capitalists.
HIS DIFFICULT WORK.
The English papers treat his recall to
power as a triumph for England, Ignor
ing the fact that Klamll Pnslia showed no
special bias toward England and that he
opposed the continued occupation of Egypt
by Great Britain. They also find it con
venient to forget that he refused to admit
the British demand for the free passage
of the straits of the Dardanelles In the
event of war with Russia. He has always
proved himself to be keonly alive to the
danger of British encroachments. The
Sultan has called him to power now, not
as being biased toward any power, but as
relying upou his skill to guide the country
through existing nnd Impending storms.
The Armenian question Is not the only
one that he will have to deal with. There
are other matters that will require the
greatest political skill for their settlement.
A part of Arabia Is In revolt, the Slav com
mittee In Sofia Is making preparations
to enter upon a regular campaign in Mace
donia, and the Island of Crete Is en tho
verge of an insurrection. It will there
fore bo seen that it will require a master
hand to guide affairs so that there shall bg
no dismemberment of tho empire.
REMARKABLE LOSS OF MEMORY.
A. notable case of loss ot memory, Involv
ing a confusion of personality, is engaging
the attention ot scientists. A. lady who
was sitting on the promenade at Brighton
found herself unable to tell her name, ad
dress, or anything connected with her life.
She said that she had felt something break
Inside of her head. The authorities, not
being able to find out anything about her,
had her sent to the -workhouse.
There was not a tingle mark on ber
clothing, letters, or anything else that would
assist In the discovery of ber identity. Bbe
convened as an educated woman on the
things around, her and wrote in a similar
manner to the doctors who examined her,
but her mind Was an absolute blank as fares
the past was concerned. The wfjmanwas
described widely and ber case was discussed
at length by the newspapers.
Her husband, who is a civil engineer in
London, turned up last night and was recog
nized by her. She unaccountably left her
home a week ago. She has no idea of how
she went to Brighton. Thedoctorssay that
while she was struggling to remember her
name she often said It was Trilby. Then

MRS. CHANT'S DEFEAT!
Mrs. Orniiston Chant's absence from the
6esslonof tlie London county council a t which
tho Social Purity party's defeat over
music hall licenses was decisive, led to an
Inquiry us to where she had gone. It
transpires that she sailed from Liverpool
for Boston on tho steamer Ccphalonia on
Octoebr2G. She lsonhcrway to Baltimore
where she will attend a Social Purity con
vention She will be moreitSan surprised
to learn that the Empire and every other
music hall has triumphed ,over her on tho
license question. ,'
Mrs. F. Ballhache, president of the Social
Turity committer of the British Woman's
Tempera nee Ass oclatloa. told thereporterfor
tho United Press that the. inaction of the
party at the licensing session was due to the
reeling of certainty that the former decision
of tho county council against the niuslchalls
.would be upheld and that the moderates
in the council would never reverse the
moral work of six years.
The absence of Mrs. Chant, which she de
plored, accounted ror rupeb. The Social
Purity Committee hod now been stung to
action nnd was determined to put more
energy In the movement in the future. It
hoped to upset the decision, which had
taken the committee by surprise.
The coming iwct laureate will be either
Sir Edwin Arnold or Alfrid Austin Both
are described as ready to write courtier

appointment of cither.

Republican Club listened last night In

This meeting was a continuation of a
grand mass meeting held during the day In
a grove in the suburbs, to which the
Washington Republicans veere invited and
to which they responded 1C0 strong.
The club lelthere at midday and reached
Laurel In time to Join the big procession
which preceded the meeting. -Mr. T. G.
Lasler, president of the club, was chosen

The Democrats are now in order with

FLAGS WAVED EVERYWHERE.
Innumerable flags waved from the big
locomotive, and Hie colore of theUuionwere
conspicuous ontheplatformcar. Tbecheers
and acclamations were prolonged, and the

convinced of the true patriotism which
filled the breasts of the large crowd before

the crowd, and was enthusiastically ap
plauded. Calls were made for Colonel
Marye, and he came forward, expressing
the pleasure felt by the city of Lynchburg

but no one was prepared for what really
- The city was In gala,attlrc, and as the
train entered through several sharp, rocky
gorges It seemed as though every hillside,
bridge, and housetop swarmed with people.
From the woods on the crest of a lofty
hill a big cannon belihed out the Presi
dential salute; b'lt even the boom of the
gun was drowned in the ear-splitting volley
of cheers and shouts of greeting that rolled
up from the great masses of people that
stretched out in every direction.

run, and the people packed in and about

can recall any such crowd oa cither of
the previous trips of the bell, except in
large cities and the patriotic enthusiasm
was Indescribable. Red, white, and blue
bunting covered even the trolloy pies,
while horses wore flags tied about their
necks, and women of evident refinement
cheered themselves hoarse and Joined the
