Associated Press Dispatches.
Albany, N. V., Sept. s.—At midnight
a successful attempt at train-wrecking
was.made on tbe New York Central,
near Green Bush. Luckily no loss of
life or serious injuries resulted. The
train wrecked was on the way
from Montreal to New York, consisting of
eight sleepers, well tilled. It was de
railed, but barring the shaking up of the
passengers and the bruising of half a
dozen or so, nothing more serious than
the wrecking of the cars resulted.
The train was twenty-live minutes
late, and running thirty miles an hour,
when the engine struck an obstruction,
was lifted into the air and the whole
train thrown from the track. The en
gineer and fireman stuck to their posts.
The first sleeper, containing twenty-two
passengers, slid down an en
bankment and turned on its side.
.None of the passengers were injured
outside of a few bruises. The second
coach turned a somersault, landing in
the ditch bottom side up. In this car
there was onlyjone passenger, Miss Gara
kan, of Brooklyn, the conductor and
porter. Neither was dangerously hurt,
though Miss Garakan received a
severe blow on the head,
and was the most hurt of all
the passengers. The third car
was thrown across the ditch. About
eight passengers were in this coach, but
were not hurt. The other live sleepers
did not leave the road-bed.
A number of passengers were cut and
bruised in extricating themselves from
■the wreck. An investigation as to the
cause of the disaster showed that a rail
was jammed into cattle guards, wedged
with timber and securely held by
fish plates. The whole arrangement
was placed in a slanting position to
lift the train clean off the track. The
Jesuit showed that the judgment of the
fiends who placed the obstruction on the
track, was unerring, and that their pur
pose was successfully accomplished.
Further investigation revealed a simi
lar obstruction on the south bound
(track a little way below. No stone will
be left unturned to discover the perpe
trators of the dastardly outrage. A
relief train brought all the passengers
back here; they numbered sixty-three.
It was evidently the intention to wreck
the freight trains soon due on both
tracks, as the regular Montreal passenger
had passed, and tbe one wrecked was an
extra. A reward of $5,000 is offered for
the apprehension of the miscreants.
The executive board of the Knights of
Labor, after a consultation on the ques
tion, offered $3,000 reward for the arrest
of the perpetrators.
Aii Uncircuiimtantlal Wreck on the
Ogden, Utah, Sept. 5. — The east
bound overland flyer on the Union Pa
cific was partially wrecked this morn
ing, thirty miles east of here, by the
accidental dropping of a brake iron.
Three cars were overturned and went
down a bank. One lady passenger was
seriously but not fatally hurt, and others
badly shaken up.
The injured lady is Mrs. Gates, of this
city. The track was cleared this even
ing, and all the passengers proceeded.
Denver, Sept. 5. —A telegram from
Ogden, Utah, to the Commercial says:
"The report of a wreck wired to a Den
ver paper is a mistake. Union Pacilic
passenger train No. 2, leaving
Ogden at 9:55 a. m., was thrown
off the track at Croydon, forty miles
east of here by a broken rail.
Three cars, a Pullman sleeper, cbaircar,
Rio Grande coach and the special car of
President Bliss, of the Boston and Alb
any, were derailed. The cars were some
what smashed, and the passengers badly
shaken up, Mrs. Gates, of this city,
was bruised about the head and arms.
No one was badly injured. The pas
sengers all continued their journey.
The first reports were exaggerated. A
wrecking train, with surgeons, was sent
out, but was unnecessary. The track
was cleared tonight, at 6:30.
Steamboats in Collision.
New York, Sept. 5. —The steamboats
C. H. Northam and Continental, both of

Three Hundred Lives Imperilled.
Scranton, Pa., Sept. s.—The Uvea of
300 men and boys, working in the
Cayuga mine, were in deadly peril this
afternoon, through the burning of the
engine house, and for a time excitement
reaching pandemonium existed about
the mouth of the mine, where a great
crowd of men and women had assem
bled. All the air currents were cut off,
and the suffocation of the men seemed
probable. The miners, however, He'd to
the workings of the Brissin mine, out
of which they all escaped.
Stockholders of tke Illinois Central
Kebel Against the Managers.
New York, Sept. 5. —An evening pa
per publishes a secret petition which it
states is being circulated among the
stockholders of the Illinois Central, urg
ing them to rise in rebellion against the
present management. The petition
states that the company is on the verge
of ruin through mismanagement. The
petition is especially directed against
President Fish and Vice President Har
riman, who are not practical railroad
men, and who have been unable to se
cure the friendship of the people along
the line, who look on it as an alien cor
A contrast is made between the pros
perous state of the company in 1883 and
in 1888, after five years of the Fish-Har
riman management. It is shown that
with an increase in debt and stock of
$34,998,000. there litis been a decrease of
$21,661 in the net earnings from the op
erations of the road, when the results
from 1883 are compared with those of tfie
fiscal year ending June 80, 1890. Not
withstanding the heavy traffic owing to
the prolific yield of grain in 1888
and 1889, dividends have fallen from
8 per cent in 1883 to ti per cent in 188!),
and the market value of holdings in the
same period has fallen from 145 to
116. The petition further states: "It is
believed tbat since the report of 1888
was published, the debt of tbe company
has been increased by several million
dollars, and that the debt and stock are
approximately $38,000,000, in excess of
1883, and there are strong reasons for
believing that at this time the company
also lias a floating debt of from $1,000,
--000 to $2,000,000. It must be apparent
that after paying the annual charges, the
maigin for 6 per cent dividends
is now very narrow, and tbe further issue
of $5,000,000 of stock as recently pro
posed by the present management, or
any considerable increase in the debt
and interest account, will force a re
duction of dividends and a serious de
cline in the market value of shares."
Neither Mr. Harriman nor Mr. Fish
were in the city today.
An Alleged Embezzler Has His Arrcstors
Chicago, Sept. 5.—C. C. Rodney, who
was arrested here Monday on a telegram
from Portland, Oregon, saying he was
an embezzler, swore out warrants this
morning for the arrest of Chief of De
tectives Iviply and Detective Collins, on
tbe charge of ' falße imprisonment.
Rodney was brought betore Judge Alt
geld, yesterday, who released bin* after
scoring the police for arresting
a man without a warrant. As
soon aa Rooney was released,
he was immediately re-arrested on a
warrant sworn out by Detective Collins,
charging him with being a fugitive from
justice. He was again brought before
Justice Altge'.d, this morning, and re
leased, the judge declaring that the po
lice had no right to arrest Rodney, on
insufficient evidence. Rodney then
swore out the warrants alluded to.
This afternoon Lieutenant Kipley and
Detectives Collins and Speele were held
in $10,000 bail for illegally arresting
C. A. Morse, of Portland, who caused
Rodney's arrest, is the owner of the Ore
gon Picture Frame company. Young
Rodney lived with Morse while in his
employ. Iltrseeined to be greatly sur
prised at his arrest, and denied emphat
ically that he was guilty. "Perhaps it
is on account of a land deal I bad with
Morse, that I have been arrested," said
Rodney today, "but as my dealings were
perfectly square, and In view of
the fact that Morse lias the land in his
own name, I don't see how on earth the
charge could be trumped up against
me. The day I left Portland I got a
letter of recommendation from Morse,
and upon the strength of that letter I
got a position with a Chicago firm, and
was about to depart for my old terri
tory as their agent, wiien I was ar

An Emissary on the Way to Influence
City of Mexico, Sept. 6. —A message
was received here today from Acapulco,
Mexico, stating that the Pacific mail
steamer San Bias, which left Panama
August 21st, arrived at that
port, having on board one
Cunningham, an American or
Englishman, who was on his way to the
United States for the purpose of in
fluencing congress in favor of Guatemala
concerning the Barrundia killing. The
telegram winds up by saying: "Advise
Geronimo Pou to be on guard, as I have
reason to believe Cunningham sent him
a dispatch, and is an emissary of Bar
Pou was seen at his rooms tonight. He
produced this dispatch from Acapulco,
addressed to Geronimo Pou, Minister of

not to interfere in the Barrundia killing.
If you think this important, telegraph
me at San Francisco. I would not allow
you to interfere.

nothing of Cunningham and had
expressed no opinion regarding the

Associated Press Dispatches 1
Pittsburg, Sept. 5.—A number of the
richest corporations in the country have
formed an alliance against strikers.
Among the members are the Westing
house system, the Yale Lock Company,
Colt Arms Company and four or five
other big factories, and presumably the
Pullman interests. In the compact it is
agreed that in case a strike
occurs to enforce unreasonable
demands, whether tbe strike be
against one or all of the associated
factories, all work is to cease. The
strikers are to be allowed to remain idle
until they see fit to return to work, and
no factory is to employ any worker who
may have left any factory on a strike.
Neither is an associated factory to seek
workers during a strike from any of the
federated works. The institutions
named employ between 50,000 and 00,
--000 workers, and directly support 250,
--000 to 300,000 people, exclusive of other
interests depending upon the earnings
of these people. It is claimed by these
manufacturers that the action of these
workers forced the alliance.

A POSER FOR THE POPE.
He Is Asked to Give His Opinion, on
Rome, Sept. 5. —Some prominent
bishops some time ago requested the
Pope to express an opinion on the
merits or demerits of hypnotism. The
Pope referred the subject to the holy
inquisition. While a full decision has
not been reached yet, it is understood
the tribunal will give as its opinion that
the church should condemn hypnotism
as practiced upon human beings, upon
the ground that it disturbs human lib
erty and is dangerous in its effects upon
the mental and physical condition of the
