A Terrible Collision on the
B. and 0. Road.
A Boy Operator Responsible for
Two Men Killed in a Northern Pacific
A Wharf Fire Caused at Seattle by a
Vag's Pipe—An Enraged Father's
Associated Press Dispatches. I
Zanesville, Ohio, Sept. 28.—At about
1 o'clock this morning a disastrous
freight wreck occurred on the Baltimore
and Ohio near Pleasant Valley, a short
distance west of this city. Orders were
given for the east and west bound
freights to pass at Black Hand, but the
operator at that place failed to deliver
the order to the eastbound train. Later
he saw his mistake and telegraphed
the operator here that there
would be a wreck pretty soon,
and left his post. He is
a mere boy. Both engines and a num
ber of cars filled with merchandise, were
piled up in great confusion. Eight men
were killed—John Buckingham, en
gineer ; Wm. Freefone, fireman; Free
man Keller, brakeman ; John Cochrane,
Ben Smart, Glenn Bush, Geo. AY. Stone
burner, Tom McCary and one unknown.
Engineer John Kemp had a leg cut off,
and Fireman Wilson was* badly hurt.
Those not employed on the train were
beating their way from Columbuß.
The trains met on a sharp curve, and
tlie westbound train had just emerged
from a piece of woods, so that neither
was checked in speed. The engines
crashed together with awful force, and
freight cars to the number of twenty
five, were piled up to the height oi
twenty-five or thirty feet.
There was also a collision on Barnes
ville hill, on the Baltimore and Ohio,
between an express and passenger train.
The railway officials state no one was
hurt, but both engines and an express
car were ruined.
A VAG'S PIPE
Caused a Big Wharf Fire at Seattle Last
Seattle, AVash., Sept. 28. —Fire broke
out at 8:80 tonight in the outward end
of Harrington (Sc Smith's warehouse, on
a pier five hundred feet long, between the
foot of Yesler avenue and Main street,
and before it could be extinguished,
destroyed one-half of the wnrehouse and
the wharf, and an equal part of the Hat
field wharf, adjoining.
The fire was first discovered by a
watchman, who saw flames bursting
through the roof immediately over
where 100 tons of hay were stored. An
alarm brought out the entire fire de
partment, but before it arrived two hun
dred feet of the wharf and the one ad
joining were in flames. Hard work by
the department extinguished the flames
after half an hour.
Harrington oi Smith lost 100 tons of
hay, 400 barrels of lime and 400 barrels
of cement. Their loss is estimated at
.SO,OOO on stock, and $1,000 on wharf;
contents fully insured. Hatfield's loss
is about $4,000 on stock of lime, cement
and hay and was insured. The wharf is
owned "by Ed L. Terry; loss, $8,000; in
surance, $3,000. The fire is supposed to
have smarted by a spark from the pipe of
a vagrant sleeping in Harrington &
A BRIDEGROOM. CRAZED.
His Bride Slain by Her Father, Who
Lacon, 111., Sept. 28.—A terrible trag
edy occurred here this morning. For
some time Joseph Baxter, a young Eng
lishman, employed in the Lacon woolen
mills, had been courting Mary Siefert, a
young girl who, with her father, worked
in the same mill. The father objected
strenuously to their engagement, and
went so lar as to threaten several
days ago to kill them and himself unless
they gave up the idea of maniage. Nev
ertheless the young people were married
Saturday night. This morning Siefert
sent for Baxter, saying lie wished to
apologize for the language used and be
come reconciled. Baxter went and had
a pleasant interview with his father-in
law, and at the latter's request, sent in
his bride to make her peace. As soon as
she went into the room, her father seized
a shotgun and blew out her brains. He
then placed the other barrel of the gun
in his mouth and fired the remaining
charge into his own head, dying in
stantly. The young husband to-night is
a raving maniac.
ACCIDENT OR SUICIDE.
A Bibulous Young Woman Asphyxiated
by Illuminating Gas.
New Youk, Sept. 28.—A young woman
known as Mrs. Bradley, but who is said
to have been Juniata Sergeant, of San
Francisco, died in her apartments at
147 West Thirty-fifth street last night,
from asphyxiation, caused by inhaling
illuminating gas which escaped from an
open burner. AVhether it was a case of
suicide or accident will probably never
be known, but from the dead girl's col
ored servant, it is learned that her mis
tress came home somewhat the worse for
liquor about midnight, Friday night,
and retired to her room with a bottle
of liquor. There was a half open win
dow near the burner from which the gas
escaped, and a sudden draught of air
might have blown the light out. She
was found unconscious yesterday morn
ing. The remains will be forwarded to
Two Men Killed in a Northern Pacific
Tenino, Wash., Sept. 28. —A special
freight on the Northern Pacific from
Portland, ran into the rear of the Pa
cific Mail No. 2, in front of the depot
today. Two men were killed, tlie head
of one being completely severed from
the body. Both trains were running to
wards Tacoma. The freight had side
tracked at Bucoda to allow tlie mail to
pass. The latter leftßucodaat 12 o'clock,
and the freight left at 22:10 p. in. The
mail had been standing at the depot at
Tenino about four minutes, when the
freight came around a curve at a speed,
the .engineer of the freight stated, of
about twelve miles per hour. Engineer
I.avelle discovered the danger when
about 150 yards behind, and imme
diately jreversed his engine. The
air pump was broken and
failed to work, and the freight
went crashing into the Pullman car on
the rear of the mail train. Fortunately
the rear car stood the shock, and thereby
avoided a terrible disaster. Behind the
engine of the freight train was a lumber
car, in which two workmen were steal
ing a ride, As tlie crash came the en
gineer and fireman, J. Barrett, jumped,
but the workmen were caught and hor
Hyde Park, Mass., Sept. 28. —Mrs.
Hayes, about 50 years of age, wife of
Dr. Charles C. Hayes, drowned herself
in Neponset river this morning. The
body will be taken to Addison, Wis.,
where the father of the deceased, ex-
Governor Mills, of Wisconsin, resides.
Mrs. Hayes was a very refined and estim
able lady, and her death is a great blow
to the community.
Leaped a Trestle.
Clarion, Pa., Sept. 28. —A freight
train on the Pittsburg and Western
leaped a trestle at Shepperville, this
morning, killing Fireman Elder and
Brakeman Shreckengost, and fatally in
juring Engineer Woods.
AN AWFUL HOT FIRE.
THE CHICAGO STOCK YARDS CON
The Anglo-American Packing Company's
Plant Damaged to the Extent of ?650,
--000—The Carcasses of 7,000 Hogs
Chicago, Sept 28 —The Anglo-American
Packing company's establishment at the
stock yards was damaged by fire early
this morning to the extent of $050,000.
The fire is one of the worst the de
partment has had to deal with. An
alarm of fire was turned in shortly be
fore 2 o'clock, when flames were seen in
the packing room. AVhen the first en
gines arrived this room was a mass of
flames. Water had little effect on the
grease-soaked floors, and the fire soon
reached a room where thirty-two tanks
of lard were located. These exploded
one after another and the melted lard
added fresh fuel to the flames. Tlie
heat was so intense that the firemen
were forced back and compelled to work
from a distance. The flames then
spread to the cooling room where the
carcasses of nearly seven thousand hogs
were stored. They burned like oil.
Water seemed useless, and the twenty
engine companies at work made but
little headway. More engines were
summoned, but two hours after the
fire started, the roof fell in and the
flames seemed to spread more rapidly
than ever. The hundred streams ot
water being poured on the lire appeared
to have no effect.
About this time the flames reached a
lot of salt peter ami the flames from this
stifled the firemen, overcoming several
of them. The fire marshals directed all
the efforts of their men to nrevent the
spreid of the flames from the Anglo-
American plant. Within a short dis
tance of the establishment are several
other large packing houses, and for a
time it was feared the flames would com
municate to them. The firemen suc
ceeded, however, in controlling it.
At 0 o'clock this morning it was seen
to be impossible to extinguish the burn
ing pork, and water was thrown on it to
keep the fire down as much as possible.
It will have to burn out and it will
probably be a day or two before it is
The- lire department succeeded in sav
ing the other portion of the Anglo-
American plant from serious damage.
The loss is entirely covered by in
surance. The company that has been
conducting the business is composed of
Englishmen. Recently, however, a new
company was formed, known as Fowler
Bros, (limited,) incorporated in Eng
land, with a capitalization of £750,000,
with a proposal to acquire the business
of several firms here and elsewhere.
Murdei in the First Degree.
Port Townsknd, Wash., Sept. 28.—
The jury in the case of Dominion Coella,
on trial for the murder of John Deletes,
his employer, brought in a verdict of
murder in the first degree, this morning,
after being out five hours. On the night
of July 2nd Coella hit Deletes in the
head with a hammer, stunning him, and
then cut his throat with a razor,
nearly severing the head from the
body. He was captured five
days later in the woods by three officers,
through the aid of an Italian named Joe
Massoni, who received a reward of .S2OO.
He confessed the crime. Deletes was
known to have kept a large sum of mon
ey in a trunk, and the murder was com
mitted for robbery. Coella claimed that
the deceased owed him money. The de
fense will ask a new trial.

the President He Has Vetoed
Associated Press Dispatches.
AVashington, Sept. 28.—1n two or
three days the long session of the fifty
first congress will have come to an end.
It has been about the longest ever held.
Although the first session of the fifty
first congress lasted until October 20th,
the present session, by reason of longer
daily sessions, has far exceeded it in
working time, and the amount of legis
lative work actually accomplished has
been extraordinary, viewed in the light
of the previous congress. The record
so far is: Bills and joint resolu
tions introduced in the house,
12,402; senate, 4,750; total, 16,972;
against 15,590 in the first session of the
last congress, which in this matter far
excelled all previous records. Reports
made in the house, 3,215; senate, 1,817
(no account being taken in the senate of
other than written reports). Bills passed
by the house, 1,292, of which the senate
j has passed 849. All of these 849 became
| laws or are awaiting the president's ap-
I proval. Bills passed by the senate,
j 1,100, of which 480 were sent to the pres
ident, making the total number about
1,335 acts of law, against 1,790 for
the whole of the last congress. Of these
acts 800 house and 275 senate bills were
pensions to individuals.
In the completed work of the session,
aside from the tariff bill, the following
are some of the many important meas
ures enacted into law : Silver bill; cus
toms administrative bill; dependent and
disability pension bill; anti-trust bill;
anti-lottery bill; world's fair bill; ad
mission of Idaho and Wyoming; meat
inspection bill; laud grant forfeiture
bill; original package bill; ad
ditions to the navy. Also bills repeal
ing the act of 1888, which withdrew
practically all the western public lands
from settlement, and providing that
hereafter only actual reservoir sites
shall be withdrawn, and that no one
person shall enter more than 320 acres ;
relief for the Mississippi valley flood suf
ferers; Portage Lake and rrennepin canal
and Galveston harbor projects; for a
large addition to the clerical force of
the pension office; a bill providing
for the classification of worsted clothes
and woolens; that no person
in time of peace shall be tried for deser
tion after a lapse of two years ;to pre
vent desertions by enabling recruits to
"buy out;" extending the act for the
relief of railroad land settlers; several
bills regarding Indian reservations and
treaties ; for a census of farm mortgages,
etc.; also the census of Chinese ; increas
ing the pension for total helplessness ;
for an assistant secretary each of the war
and navy departments.
There were eighteen contested elec
tion cases before the house, and seven
of the Republican contestants have been
seated. 'Ihe senate seated the Repub
lican senators from Montana.
Seven bills have been vetoed by the
president, three of them public build
ing bills, two bills authorizing the in
debtedness increased of certain cities or
counties, one changing the boundaries
of the Uncompahgre Indian reservation,
and another extending the time for the
payment of lands purchased from the
j Omaha tribe of Indians.
Among the bills which have passed
the house, but have not yet passed the
senate, are: The federal election bill;
national bankruptcy bill; bill ior the
relief of the supreme court; compound
iard bill; bill to prevent products of con
i vict labor from being used upon public
i buildings or works; the eight-hour back
pay bill; bill to repeal the timber cul
ture law ; eight-hour day bill. Among
the senate bills which have not passed
the house are: The shipping and sub
sidy bill; bili granting California live
per cent, of the proceeds of the sales
of public lands; bill to enlarge Yellow
stone park; bill to grant right of way
| throughout the vacant public lands for
irrigation purposes; bill for the compul
sory education of Indian children ; bill
for the inspection of live cattle and beef
products for exportation.
The Blair educational bill and the in
] ternational copyright bill were defeated
in the senate and house respectively.
Many other bills of prominence have
I not yet been acted upon by either
How much time the senate will con
sume in discussion of the conference re
port on tlie tariff, cannot he stated
accurately, but the leaders on both
sides think a vote can be reached Tues
day. Final adjournment will come the
day after the report is disposed 01. In
addition to the tariff bill, the general
deficiency bill is the only measure
likely to. receive the attention of the
senate, that is now pending the house.
With the exception of the conference re
port in the general deficiency bill, the
house has completed its labors and waits
upon the senate. While waiting some
measure may betaken from the calendar
and passed. An effort m%y be made to
pass the two shipping bills sent over by
lbs senate, but this is strongly resented
by the Democrats, and unless special
provision is made for their consideration,
the effort is likely to fail.

lan, surprised his congregation today by
announcing that he had decided to re

Conflicting s;,nirs About the Attempt
to Kill President Diaz.
New Orleans, Sept. 28. —The Picay
une's San Antonio special says : Several
Mexican gentlemen, just from Mexico,
deny the story of the attempted assassi
nation of President Diaz on tiie night of
the 15th. They say there was nothing
in it beyond tlie discharge of firearms
by a few drunken soldiers. All the
same the railway men who arrived to
day, say of thirty-five conspirators,
twelve have been arrested and are con
lined in the military prison.
Nobody Was Hit.
Sacramento, Sept. 28. —Two China
men were gambling this evening in
Chinatown, when one laid a purse con
taining $100 on the table. The other
snatched it and ran. The other pur
sued him, and on the sidewalk the
thief drew a pistol and shot at his pur
suer. The latter was not hit, but kept
up the chase and the purse-snatcher
tired two more ineffectual shots at him
and finally escaped in a dark alley.
The shooting occurred in a part of
Chinatown which is always crowded
with Chinamen on the sidewalk, and
the wonder is that nobody was hit.
Professor Hirsh. a Chicago chemist,
asserts that he has discovered a process
by which he can extract aluminium from
common clay at a cost of 15 cents or less
for each pound. Aluminium, until
quite recently, cost $5 per pound.
Recent experiment has proved that
aluminium is particularly adapted for
treatment in the drawing press, one of
its chief advantages being that it can be
workend with very little annealing.

yourself, sir, did you have strictly one price?"
First Clothiei —"Well, no, not exactly, Peter. You see
my customers were in the habit of always beating down,
so. in order to protect myself, I usually did about like
this : For instance, if a suit of clothes cost me $10 I
marked it $20, my customer beat me down to $17.50,
and as he was satisfied to get it at his price, why I let
him have it."
Saint Peter—"Bat don't you know that was wrong ?
You could afford to sell that suit for $13.50 and make
good infWest on your investment, and if your customer
was a poor man, the wrong was doubly as bad."
First Clothier —Well, you know, Peter, business is

could. I didn't think that was wrong."
