BRAKES REFUSED TO WORK.
A Terrible Disaster on the
Big Four Road.
Ten Men Killed Outright and
Many Injured.
One of the Worst Wrecks in the
Histery of Railroading.
Twenty-two Men Terribly Scalded on a
Mississippi River Steamboat.
Six of Them Dead and
Others Dying-.
By the Associated Press.l
Lafayette. Ind., May 7.—One of the
most horrible wrecks in the history of
railroading occurred on the Big Four
road, this city, at 1:15 this morning, as
the result of which 10 men are now dead
and many more injured.
Tbe train was the eaat bound passen
ger leaving Chicago at 9p. m. The ac
cident wbb caused by the failure of tbe
air brakes to work. The engineer's des
perate efforts to stop the train are shown
by the large amount of sand thrown
by him on the bridge through
which the train came just before
the fatal crash, and bis vigorous whist
ling for brakes. The engine dashed out
of the bridge over the Wabaah river at a
apeed of not less than 60 miles an hour,
crashing into tbedepot building, tearing
off a portion and carrying the train sheds
several hundred feet. The engine,when
it left the track, wsb followed by the
baggage car, two postal cars and the ex
press car, and piled in one promiscuous
mass, a total and complete wreck, bury
ing a score or more of victims in
THE AWFUL PILE OF DEBRIS.
The chair oar and two Pullman sleep
ers remained on the track. To add to
the consternation fire broke out from tbe
Btove in tbe baggage car, but tbe fire de
partment Bpeedily extinguished the
flames. A large crowd gathered quickly
at the scene of the disaster and assisted
in rescuing the victims and a large force
of local physicians gave the necesaary
attention to the wounded. Several vic
tims of tbe wreck were persons standing
in tbe depot waiting for the train.
Tbe dead are as follows: Michael
Welch, engineer, Indianapolis; Fireman
Mclnnis, Indianapolis; E. D. Myers,
Loganeport, mail clerk; McMabon,
Cincinnati, mail clerk; Charles Myers,
Lafayette, hackman; John Lannon, La
fayette, mad cart driver; Jesse H
Long, Lebanon, Ind., mail clerk;
Charles Schahill, Indianapolis; Otto
Jeraelaon, Chicago.
These were all frightfully crushed and
mangled, their limbs being severed in
several instances.
The injured are aa follows: Jefferson
Reese. Kempton; Richard Jones, Pon
tiac, 111.; Louis L> filer. Fowler; Sophas
Kergenhale, Milwaukee; William Place,
Frankfort, Ind.; Charles Roush, Lafay
ette; William Bbcutell, Lebanon, Ind.;
C. A. Wisaell, A. W. Cornahan, L. A.
Wertßol, J. N. Vickett, all mail clerks,
Cincinnati.
The damage by property destroyed
will be fully $80,000.
HOW THE DISASTER OCCURRED.
The ill-fated train almoat a mile from
the station, began dashing around
curves and tore acrosa the long bridge,
although the man at the throttle re
versed the machinery and immense
streams of fire were being dashed off
from tbe driving wheels running in the
opposite direction to that of tbe swiftly
flying cars that followed. Just
after leaving the eaat end of the
long bridge, the tracks describe
a semi-circle, at the midway point, of
which the Union station is located.
When the engine struck the sharp curve
it left tbe track, followed by the cars in
an awful swirl, and they piled upon
each otber 100 feet away, after crushing
through the train sheds and bringing
down tons of structural iron to add to
the terrors of the aituation.
THE WORK OF RESCUE.
The bystanders went to work at once
and the police snd fire departments
quickly responded. Superintendent
Bender arrived at an early hour, and
under hia direction the tracks were soon
cleared and ready for resumption of
traffic.
The injured were removed to tbeir
homes or the hospital and no other
fatalitiea are expected than those here
tofore noted.

A Crooked State at Affairs at the Turns
Prlso s.
Yuma, Ariz., May 7.—The investiga
tion of the Arizona territorial prison re
veals a startling state of affairs. The
snperintendent of the prison, W. K.

two daggers, butcher knives,
saws, files and slungshots have been

other drugs. Several boxeß of
goods which were about to be shipped
out by M. Mclnernany, the former super
intendent, were seized at the railroad
depot and found to contain several hun-.
dred dollars' worth of prison property.
Mclnernany was arrested and held to
bail to await the action of tbe grrnd
jury. Further developments are ex
pected, as a large amount of prison
property ia still iniesiug. Several guards
have returned property, claiming that
the superintendent told tbem to take it.

Only the Holders or Passes Allowed to
Enter—Thousands of Workingmen
Disappointed — A Strange
Mixing of Extremes.
Chicago, May 7.—The rule closing the
the gates of the world's fair Sunday was
rigidly enforced today co far as the
ticket-purchasing public was concerned.
Tbe fortunate thousands who held paases
were admitted however, and allowed to
wander about the grouru'.? at will. Large
crowda of workingmen with their fam
ilies, who went to the fair thia morning,
were greatly aggrieved at being denied
admission. Charles W. Clinsfrnan, a
stockholder, notified tho management
yesterday that he would appeal to the
courts to compel the exposition to open
Sundava.
At the Wild West show the duke of
Veragua waa brought face to face with
native Indians; descendants of Cortex
met representatives of the Spanish
crown of today; the wild Cossack laced
representatives •of the czar of Russia;
Indians who fought ot Wounded Knee
s.kook hands with army officers, and
thus comparisons were made tnrougboat
tbe list of nationalities. It was a
strange, harmonious mixing of extremes
in the presence of a metropolitan audi
ence.

The Yuma Penitentiary
Scandal.
By the Associated Press.l
San Francisco, May 7.—One man in
stantly killed and another probably
mortally wounded was the result of a
wife's infidelity, a husband's suspicions
and false friend's intrigueß in this city
this morning. Daniel Daly, a pipe fitter
at the Union iron works, killed John J.
Laughton and shot down John Carroll,
the brother and friend, respectively, of
Michael Laughton, whose home he had
dishonored. Daly had for some time
been a boarder at the home of Laughton
on the Protrero and had paid assiduous
attention- to vLaughton's wife, though
himself a married man. Laughton
had been suspicious that his
wife was faithless and he adopted
a system of espionage over her actions
by which he might confirm hia belief.
Part of hia plan waa to bore sundry holeß
through the walla and floor into Daly's
room and place himself or hia brother,
John J. Laughton, on guard at times
when the guilty couple supposed them
selves unwatcbed. Early this morning
Michael Laughton left the hous-e Baying
he would be gone Borne hours, but in
stead he summoned bis brother, John
Carroll, Frank Carroll and J. I. Clenck,
'friends. Laughton cradled under the
house and discover ng his wife and Daly
together, gave the signal to his friend*
and brother and they broke into the
room. Daily instantly drew a revolver
and fired four shots, two taking effect
as before stated. Daly is under arrest.

Seattle, Wash., May 7.—About 11
o'clock tonight fire broke out in a row
of corrogated iron buildings on Yesler
avenue between Post street and Railroad

over 20 heavy streams are being poured
into the building.
Fire broke out in Felita Bros.' ten*
and sail loft and apread rapidly to Vi|«
lard's lodging house and aaloon adjoin
ing on the weat and to tbe Seattle Sup
ply store on the east. The buildings
were cheap structures, erected ju<t out
ide the fire limits, immediately
after the big fire three yeara
ago, and were of wood, covered
with corrngated iron. At present it ia
impossible to estimate the losses. Tne
building" all belong to tbe estate of

THE YOUNTVILLE HOME.
Mnch Dishonesty Discovered in Its
Administration.
Yountville, Cal., May 7.—The in
vestigation into the Conduct of the vet
erans' home at Yountville, growing out
of the discovery of Treasurer Koyce's
defalcation, wbb begun today before a
committee appointed- by the Veterans'
Home association and an adviaory com
mittee couHi-'ing of T. C. Mastellor, ad
jutant genera! of the G. A. 11.; Judge
W. C. Burnett, president of the Vet
erans' Home association; Secretary
Rockwell and the new treasurer,
Currier. The first aud moßt important
witnesß was Bs N. Pugh, commissory
of the home. On his accession to office
in August, 18913, he says he found that
no books, accounts, or papers of any
kind had been kept for nine yeara. He
found tbat the home bad been system
atically overcharged and swindled on
almost every pound of provisions fur
nished. They were generally of inferior
quality and short weight. When book
keeping was begun, the shortages were
made up by tbe suppliers. His whole
testimony waa to the effect tbat the
management had been inefficient.
During the investigation it transpired
that tbe pensiona received by inmateß
are about $1800 per year, though the
terma of entrance to the home are that
Bucb moneys shall be turned over by the
recipient to the home. This rule has
not been enforced for nine years.
Commandant George A. Dimpfel and
Surgeon P. J. Aiken demanded an in
vestigation of the newspaper charges
against them, and denied all the charges.
The committee decided to trace every
cent of expenditure at the home since
If9o, and will make a report Thursday
night.

FAREWELL TO EARTH.
CARLVE HARKH AWAITING THE
MES3KNGKR OF DEATH.
His Last 7! ■Mr. Spent In an Effort to
Prove His Innocerco — Painful
Leave Takings From Pa
rents and Friends.
Bwo Sing, N. V., May 7.—Carlyle
I Harris lias said farewell to his parents
and friends and all dear to him 00
earth, and now awaits the messenger of
death. The last act in the atrange
drama of hia life approaches, and while
he shows.nervous apprehension and a
fall appreciation of the terrible thing
that ia to.come to him on the morrow,
no sign oi breaking down is visible. He
adheres to the oft-repeated declaration
of his innocence, and he spent the best
part of his laat day on earth, not in
communion with special advisers
preparing for the great hereafter,
but witti pen, ink and paper reviewing
Uie past and seeking to place himself
right with the world he leaves.
Harris was a trifle more nervoua than
usual today, the situation having its
effect upon him, and the man who al
lowed no sign nf emotion to escape him
during the scenes of tbe past months is
at laat showing that he is human.
The prison physician saw bim twice
today and said while Harris was a little
more nervous than usual, he could dis
cover no signs of breaking down.
Mra. tl arris remained at her hoarding
house today and did not go to the
prison. She took her last farewell of
ber boy yeaterdav afternoon. The scene
was one of the saddest that has ever
been witnessed within the grim walls
where all is sadness. His younger
brother AUen also said good bye
yesterday. This afternoon Charles L,
Harris, his father, accompanied by
young Allen went to the prison and the
father and son met for the flrat time in
years. Mr. and Mrs. Harris have lived
apart for some time. Afterwards tbe
father took a train back ro his home in
Syracuse, leaving Mrs. Harris and Alien
to wi.t here until all is over and they
can carry away all that ia mortal of
their beloved,
Tbe laat farewells having been said,
Carlyle Harris ia devoting hia time to
writing a review of the chief events of
bis life and of what has been done by
tbe courts, judges and the governor in
hi* case.
All the preparations have been made
for tomorrow. The electrocution will
take place about noon. State Electri
cian Davis teeted the dynamo aud ap
P >ratu- and found everything in ordor.
The apparatus is the same which was
used at the last two electrocutions here.

Although Mrs. Dapew was known to

Washington, May 7.—The following
has been issued by the president for
publication:
Executive Mansion, May 8, 1893.
Tbe rules heretofore promulgated reg
ulating interviews with tbe president
have wholly failed in operation; the
time which under tbeie rules is set apart
for the reception of senators and repre
sentatives is almost entirely spent in
listening to applications for office,
which have been bewildering- in volume,
perplexing and exhausting in iteration
and impossible of remembrance. Dae
regard for public duty, which must
be negleoted if the present condi
tions continne, and the observance
of the limitations placed upon human
endurance oblige me to decline from and
after this date all personal interviews
with those seeking appointments to
office, except aa I, on my own motion,
may especially invite them. The same
considerations make it possible for me
to receive those who merely pay their
respects, except on days and during the
hours especially designated for the pur
pose. I earnestly request the senators
and representatives to aid me in secur
ing for them nnintsrrupted interviews
by declining to introduce their con
ssituents and friends when visiting the
executive mansion during the hours
designated for their reception. Appli
cants for office will only prejudice their
prospects by repeated importunity and
by remaining at Washingfon to await
results. Gkovek Cleveland.
THK APOSTLE OF CORN.
Colonel Mnrphy's Efforts to Open New
Markets in Europe,
Washington, May 7.—C01. C. J. Mur
phy, representative of American maize
jin Europe, lias returned to thia country
for a few weeks and to enable Secretary
j Morton to confer with him in regard to
the work abroad and the beat meabs for
I its future prosecution. Colonel Mnrnhy
speaks enthusiastically cf the corn work
lin Enrope, but it is not corn alone that
Colonel Murphy is interestsn in. Hs
says:
''All the wiae that is consumed
in the northernmost countries ot Europe
comeß from France, Spain, Italy and
certain parts of Germany, and no doubt
for many years to come these people
may excel us in the manufacture of th»
highest priced wines. But for wines of
comparatively moderate price we can al
ready rival the manufacturers of south
ern Europe in quality, and I am quite
sure we can lay them down in the
ports of northern Europe at a
cost which will enable ns t •
rival them in prices. Considering
the cheapness of ocean transportation
and tbe extraordinary excellence of our
