Terrible Accident in a New
Sixteen Men Badly Burned by
Original Package Saloons Doomed
in South Dakota.
Eevonge, Not Robbery Prompted the At
tack on Engineer Vandevender.
Associated Press Dispatches. I
New York, July 19.—A terrible acci
dent occurred this afternoon in Casidy
& Adler's iron foundry, West Fifty-fifth
street. The cupola in which the iron is
melted, and which contained ten tons of
molten matter, exploded just as the
molders were getting ready to cast, and
a large portion of the seething mass was
blown about in all directions. Sixteen
men were burned, of whom Peter
Scolon, August Bartelds and Edward
McNally will die. Two others, while
sustaining painful burns, are not in a
serious condition. Eighty men were at
work in the room, and it is marvelous
that no more were injured.
REVENGE, NOT ROBBERY.
The Van Wort, Ohio, Train Disaster Ex
Van Wert, Ohio, July 19.—Just be
fore reaching Van Wert, last night, the
engine of the Cincinnati, Jackson and
Michigan passenger train was boarded
by a man who knocked Engineer Van
devender and Fireman Roodtiouse sense
less with a large hammer. The train
ran past the station at Van Wert and
crashed into a yard engine and several
cars. The passengers were shaken
up but nobody was injured. En
gineer Vandevender died this af
ternoon. The fireman will recover.
It is supposed the assault was committed
by an ex-convict, Blair Mock, who killed
Vandevender's son in 1884. Engineer
Vandevender was the chief witness
against Mock, and the latter swore ven
geance. Mock was seen in the city this
morning but has not yet been arrested.
During the excitement last night it was
thought to have been an attempt to rob
the train, but it is now believed it was
merely Mock's plan of revenge.
A South Dakota Judge says Original
Packages Must Go.
Chamberlain, S. 1)., July 19. —Judge
Ilaney, of this district, sustained his
temporary injunction closing the orig
inal package houses in this city. The
grounds given for the decision are that
the enabling act admitting South Da
kota to statehood, authorized
the enactment of a prohibition
clause in the state constitution.
Such enabling act having been
passed by congress subsequent to the
passage of the inter-state commerce law,
therefore the prohibition law received
the sanction of congress, and the su
preme court decision does not therefore
apply to South Dakota. This brings up
a new question which will be carried up,
and which, if sustained, will be of great
importance to all of the new states
which have adopted prohibition.
A PRIEST IN TROUBLE.
Charged with Alienating the Affections
of a Parishoner's Wife.
New York, July 19. —John Bauss has
brought suit against Father Aloysius
Steffens, rector of St. Joseph's Catholic

wife, who he says is in a place of con
cealment known to the priest. His wife
was for some time housekeeper and cook
for Steffens. She married Bauss eight
months ago. The sentiment of the ma
jority of Steffens's congregation is against
him. He refuses to talk.

tion is that they should be sent to Mex

intended. The other ten sailed on her,
however. If the court decides that the

suit in the superior court against Rich
ard P. Thomas, Robert R. Thompson
and Robert A. Wilson to recover $400,
--000 alleged to have been lost to the
shareholders of the insolvent California
National Bank of San Francisco. The
defendants composed the executive
committee of the board of direc
tors, and the complaint alleges
that they injured and deceived the
stockholders and failed to exercise judg
ment or discretion in the bank's affairs.
It is further charged that the cashier
was permitted to control the entire busi
ness without the knowledge or direction
of the executive committee; that he
lent out large sums of money to irre
sponsible persons, and bought valueless
bills of exchange and securities.
Seven Families Homeless.

had great difficulty in keeping the
flames from spreading further.

AFTER THE FIRE.
The Damaged Western Uninn Building
Being Rapidly Repaired.
New York, July 19.—The Western
Union Company is proving that great
corporations possess great energy and
enterprise. The building at the corner
of Broadway ami Dey streets presents
the appearance of a bee hive. A small
army of workmen is engaged repairing
the damage done yesterday. Never be
fore has the Western Union been con
fronted by such conditions. Not one of
the 1,200 wires running into the build
ing could be used. The fire out, the im
mense energy of the corpora
tion began to assert itself. Offices
have been established all about
the city. The great system
is worked without a central point. All
through the night a force of men was
busy cleaning the water and debris from
the building. A force of fifty linemen
went up and down the poles and flitted
about the streets with lanterns like so
many steel-spurred fireflies. All through
the night miles of wire was stretched
and instruments attached, which clicked
on in a merry way as if nothing had
happened. When morning dawned fifty
wires had been run into 415 Broadway;
as many operators had their fingers on
the keys, and messages was clicking off
in the usual way. Up to noon work had
been going on unceasingly, and the
officers in charge said there would be
no let up until everything was repaired
and the company able to handle
all its business. Throughout the
metropolis the great fire was
the talk of the day. Thousands of peo
ple who came up Broadway this morn
ing stopped on the pavement long
enough to survey the ruins. The inte
rior of the structure took on the appear
ance of a bee-hive. There were several
hundred operators in the office in the
basement who had come to be assigned
to different temporary stations through
out the city or neighboring points where
a large amount of telegraphic business
was being handled. The Associated
Press is still located in Jersey City, the
guests of the Pennsylvania railroad, and
will probably remain there until some
time next week. A gang of workmen is
busy at 415 Broadway preparing a tem
porary home for the association, which
it will occupy until the burned building

Prince Bismarck Taken to Task—The Ex-
Empress Frederick Writes Him a
Associated Press Dispatches. 1
Bkrlin, July 19. —[Copyrighted 1890
by the New York Associated Press.] —
The Reichmnze.iger declares that the
shortening of the emperor's trip is not
due to the political situation, but the
facts contradict this statement. Affairs
in the east are hastening to a crisis, and
this has caused the emperor to advance
the date of his conference with the czar.
The rulers will meet August 10. The
fiovoe Vremya says the position in
Armenio and Bulgaria will remain in
statu que so far as Russia is concerned
until the imperial interviews are over.
The question of Prince Bismarck's
right to divulge directly or suggestively,
through interviews, his knowledge of
state affairs, acquired while he was
chancellor, will be decided upon the
emperor's return. Allusions appearing
in Hamburger Nachrirhten disclose the
desire of Bismarck to publicly implicate
the ex-Empress Frederick in plotting
against him. She has just intensified
his anger by warning him that if the re
port is true that he is pre
paring his memoirs he must
publish none of her letters
or her husband's without her consent,
and intimating that he will be prose
cuted if he fails to comply. The official
expectation is that the emperor will di
rect the application to Bismarck of the
rescript which Bismarck himself pre
pared after the Yon Arnim trial, requir
ing ministers of state to take an oath
not to publish anything relating to state
business without permission from the

days ago the position of night clerk at
the Willis house became vacant, and
Cummings, who had just arrived from

God Bless the Flag.
The masses of the north rallied to the
flag. The masses of the south never
quite warmed to the stars and bars, nor
was there at any time during the war
any deep-seated feeling against the stars
and stripes among the confederate sol
diers. The "Bonnie Blue Flag" was a
poor jingle. The only spirited, Stirling
song we had was "Dixie," and that we
got from Christy's minstrels, a northern
troupe. The truth is, the union had
the music and the colors on us, as well
as the numbers, and the north, at least,
ought to be proud"of us, that with such
odds of muscle and sentiment against us
we stood out so long.
Happily, we have the flag back again;
that flagwhich never floated overamean
or cowardly action ; whose history is an
unbroken story of patriotism and valor,
and which, as it spreads itself to the bat
tle and the breeze, to the sunshine and
the storm, tells to heaven and earth as
plainly as words could tell, the origin
and genius of our great republic. God
bless the flag! The south was never so
fortunate as when she found herself once
more encircled by its folds, drawn at
Appomattox by the hands of a far-seeing,
magnanimous and brave man.—[Henry

A Flea for the Autonomy of the States.
The people of the United States must
get rid of their extremists. They must
send their demagogues and their bigots
to the rear. The autonomy of tbe states
is essential to the integrity of the union.
The people of the north niust learn that
the people of the south are as intelligent,
as humane, as trustworthy as themselves.
They must cease to think it a part of
their duty to keep the conscience of the
south. They must understand that the
black problem is a terrible problem, the
solution of which can only be effected
by the people who have immediately to
deal with it, and that these people, if
left alone, will prove themselves intel
lectually and morally equal to it. That
they need any federal supervision or
assistance, is founded in the mistaken
notion that they are a different peo
ple, witii a different nature and
code of ethics, from the people of
the north. They are the same peo
ple, with the same emotions and aspira
tions, interests and ideas, and, if they
cannot work their wav out, no more can
the north work it for them. All attempts
of the kind have increased the evil and
always will. Our safeguard, north and
south, is home rule ; and domestic and
individual responsibility. Abolish that,
and all is lost.—[Henry Watterson.
