By the Associated Pre".
San Fkanoisco, Nov. 26.—The das
tardly work of train wreckers caused a
bad smash-np at 8:80 o'clock this morn
ing on the coaßt division of the Southern
Pacific in the outskirts of this city. A
swith connecting with a short spar of
track near the house of correction was
thrown open and the red and green
switch lights changed so that tbe main
track appeared to be all right, when a
heavy freight train from San Jose,
drawn by two engines, came over the
road. The train plunged in npon the
short siding. The engineers and fire
men and two brakemen on the front
cars jumped for their lives and were
only slightly bruised. One engine and
six cars wsre almost completely de
stroyed, however, and the other engine
and other cars badly damaged.
Miscreants turned" three other switches
in this vicinity. The morning passen
ger train, carrying 100 men and women,
barely escaped a similar fate. The
engineer had been warned of the
freight wreck and was on the lookout
and brought the train to a stop at one
of the switches.
The outrage is attributed to tramps,
their class in large numbers having
lately been refused transportation by
the Southern Pacific, and threats hav
ing been made that they would get
Eight Men Try t» Wreck and Rob a Train
Goshen, Ind., Nov. 26.—The first sec
tion of train No. 61), a fast meat express
train between Chicago and New York,
pulled into this city last
eight dwaparate robbers on board? Be
tween thia city and Elkhart they made
repeated efforts to uncouple a number
passes here close behind the meat train.
No. 60 left Elkhartj at 1:23 this morn
ing, and when a mile away the crew
found eight men concealed between the
cars. The men made an effort to un
couple the last ten cars, but they failed,
after a hard fight by the trainmen. Five
miles further another attempt was
made to uncouple the cars and a second
fight lesnlted, which lasted until the train
was on the point of pulling into Goshen.
Conductor John Hickock and two
brakemen were badly battered in the
struggle. The engineer whistled fot
assistance, and in a few minutes two
officers and a crowd of citizens congre
gated at the train, but the robbers made
their escape, taking with them the
watcbeß of several of the trainmen and
small saras of money.
Late in tbe night, a man giving the
name of Henry Zimmerman was ar
rested and $4, the amount taken from
one brakeman, was found in his shoe.
William Cone was also taken into ens
tody, and $12, taken from Conductor
Hickok, found upon him. It is be
hoved by all the officials that the men
intended to leave the uncoupled cars on
tbe track with tbe idea of wrecking the
express train and plundering it. Presi
dent Newell has offered a reward of jbOO
for each bandit captured.
THE LEHIGH STRIKE
A Thins; or the Past at JRnfTalo—Vio
lence All Along the Line.
Philadelphia, Nov. 26.— Reports from
along the Lehigh road today Bhow that
the situation is practically unchanged.
The company is running a good many
trains at irregular intervals and the
strikers are making inroads among the
new employees. Both aides profess to
be equally confident of the result. The
rumors of outbreaks either lack sub
stantiation or particulars are wanting.
A wreck occurred at Perth Amboy be
tween two freights by which Engineer
Mallory, who was taking a striker's
place, lost his life.
Advices from Buffalo indicate that
the strike is practically declared off
there, but Wilkesbarre still presents a
strong front, and today tbe company
had cause for considerable complaint as
tbe result of men interfering with at
tempts to move trains.
Buffalo, Nov. 26.— At midnight the
Lehigh Valley officials notified all con
necting lines at this point that they
would accept freight for all points on
the Lehigh Valley road, and that the
strike was a thing of the past.
A Kidnaper Captured.
Cincinnati. 0., Nov. 26.—A man giv

arrested here tonight and held on sus

Bougban, aged 17, who went to Chicago
last September and has not been seen
since. M. J. Boughan, the boy's father,
recently received a number of letters
saying he was held somewhere near
Chicago, $5,000 ransom being demanded
for hla release. Finally the writer
asked Boughan for $250 to show he
meant business. A clever trap was laid
by the police and the man caught last
night. He is held to await develop

Indianapolis, Nov. 26.—Joseph Bast
man, son of Dr. Joseph Eastman, a dis
tinguished surgeon of this city, received
in the last few days from Mr. Woodruff,
a letter in which he stated he was
engaged to marry Miss Anna Gould.
The information leaked out from
the Eastman family. The state
ment that Woodruff is a mi
trioolate at Yale college for a three
years course, in addition, is affirmed by
the letter. Eastman refused to affirm
the statement that such a letter is in
his possession, but the story is thor
oughly authentic, as the letter was dis
played to members of the household.
Revolutionists In High Glee.
El *»aso, Tex., Nov. 26.—The revolu

last Thursday over the federal troops.
It is claimed the regulars lost 25 men
killed, besides a number of wounded,
and guns, ammunition and provisions
left in the hands of the mountaineers.

dead tonight in a country borne several
miles east of this city. Four years ago
Clinton Jordan married the daughter of
Joshua Foster. Last week they sepa
rated and she returned home to ber
father. Lint nigh' Jordan accompanied
bis father-in-law home. Jordan prom

striking Cora Foster, aged 17, in the
bead, killing her instantly. The second
shot hit Foster in the head and he fell,
but he soon rose and ran about, half a
mile to the home of another
Bon-in-law, William Powell, where he fell
and lingered until late this afternoon,
when he died. Jordan then turned his
revolver toward Mrs. Foster, causing a
wound in the neck, from which she died
tonight. Jordan's wife attempted to de
fend her mother, and he stabbed her re
peatedly in the breast, bands and face,
and ended by ehooting her through the
head. Jordan then Bent a bail through
his own heart. He dropped dead. The
pistol was placed so close to hie breast
that his clothing caught fire and liter
ally burned off him, the skin dropping
from the body when it was lifted, and
the corpse presented a horrible sight.
Foster was 60 years old and his wife 50.
Mrs. Jordan was only 18 years of age.
Jordan had an unsavory reputation and
when drinking, which he often did, was
ugly and quarrelsome. All the other
victims were peaceful and orderly per
British Grain Trade.
London, Nov. 26.—Stormy weather
and heavy snow in many places is the
record for the week. The'season hither
to has been favorable to crops, which
are looking well. In wheat there was
no selling pressure or demand, and
small prices were quoted in the buyer's
favor. Fluctuations in the American
' markets have but little influence. The
Russian crop estimates are considered
inflated. There was a good demand
for Russian wheat at low prices.
Californians were prompt at 27s. 9d.
Flour was dull and the verv
low prices accepted in America checked
business. First patents sold at 22s to
24s. Maize was 3d cheaper, to arrive,
with poor demand; spot was scarce and

leader of the Parnellite body, in ad

Parnellites were denounced by their

Healy faction wanted to smash the Dil
lon men; the latter in turn were eager
to destroy Healy's following?

the Servian Ministry Not
By tbe Associated Press.
Madrid, Nov. 26.—The negative result
of tbe conference at Melilla between
General Mannas and Muley Araaf, the
sultan's brother, nearly led to a cabinet
crisis. At a meeting of the cabinet yes
terday evening the minister of finance,
Gamezo, declared if the minister of war
maintained that it was impossible to
immediately commence active opera
tions against the Moors, it was evident
the ministry ought to resign. Premier
Sagasta opposed the idea of the minis
ters resigning, and concluded by asking
for time to thoroughly consider tbe
matter under discussion before the
meeting of tbe cabinet. Minister of War
Dominguez informed some friends
that he is determined to resign unless
he is given chief command at Melilla
while retaining tbe portfolio of war dur
ing his absence from Spain. It was an
nounced, however, today that Premier
Sagasta succeeded in averting a crisis by
inducing General Domiugaez to with
draw his demand in iavor of General
Martinez Campos, who was recently ap
pointed to supreme command of the
Spanish forces against the Moors. Gen
eral Martinez Campos declared he pro
posed to start for Melilla tomorrow. He
believes tbe campaign will be short and
General Campoß has started for
Malaga. He will embark tonight for
Melilla with several generals and 7000
men. He was enthusiastically greeted.
All tbe foreign ambassadors of the great
powers visited yesterday the Spanish
minister of foreign affairs, who gave
them reassuring declarations in regard
to Spain's intentions toward Morocco.
. , RIOTING IN ROME.
Rome, Nov. 26.—A Bsriousdisturbance
took place this evening on the piazza
Cilonia. A mob of workmen began to
make threatening demonstrations before
aud violent cries. The police ordered
the mob to disperse, which, however,
only served to still further enrage the
indignant workmen, who continned to
shout: "To prison with the thieves;
down with the malefactors I" The police
charged, scattering the workmen and
alter a bard tight, making a number of
arrests. Later the mob attempted to
reassemble, causing the police to make
another charge and dispersing the riot
ers who were loud in their threats of
vengeance upon those concerned in the
bank scandals. The police communicat
ed with the military authorities, and
can, at short notice, have a strong force
of troops sent to their assistance. At
10 p. m. the cabinet crisis continues,
but it is thought all danger of further
rioting is past.
London, Nov. 26.—The Times corres
pondent at Rome says: No progress
was made toward the solution of the
crime, although King Humbert saw all
the leading Italian statesmen. Great
pressure is being brought to bear to

vative quarters of parliament, but the

Philadelphia, Nov. 2H.—It is tacitly
understood today by a majority ol the
delegates to the general asaembly of the
Knights of Labor that upon the opening
of the session tomorrow morning Pow
derly's resignation will be almost cer
tainly accepted. A telegram was sent to
Jamas R. Sovereign at Dcs Moines, la.,
asking him if he would accept the office
which Powderly seeks to vacate. It was
sent late this afternoon and signed by
19 delegates, some of whom have here
tofore been known as being very friendly
to the interests of Powderly.
At 7 :30 tonight a reply was received.
In substance Sovereign said: "If Pow
derly resigns I. will accept the office of
general master workman if tendered me,
and will do all in my power to work for
tbe good of tbe order."
This practically puts an end to tbe
controversy now going on. The anti-
Powderlyiteß still hold a vote of 24,
which is a majority, and upon reassem
bling tomorrow will get right down to
business. Cbucubsob are being held to
night by both Powderly'a friends and
those of the western favorite, for the
purpose of getting their forces properly
instructed and marshalled for the battle
of tbe ballots in tbe morning. The
friends of Sovereign are loud in their
claims for his victory and bis fitting

Hurley, Wis., Nov. 26 —Gov. Oeorge
W. Peck and military staff spent today
on tbe Gogebic range, furnishing relief
to the idle and suffering miners, several
thousand of whom have been out of
work many months and are almost in a
starving condition. Governor Peck and
party came on a special that brought
two full carloads of provisions and
clothing, and organized, in connection
WTtfi tßa CiraenTSr* commltteee on re
lief and distribution. Tbe governor and
party visited scores of houses, question
ing the people and looking into their
wants. Many pitiable cases of destitu
tion were discovered. The mines began
shotting down last June, and at present
there in not a single mine in operation
on the entire range, a region that mined
something like 10,000,000 tons of ore
last year. Altogether, about 15,000
people are in a helpless condition, but
they are not near bo badly off as tbo
miners across the line in Michigan.
Governor Rich of Michigan yesterday
issued an appeal for aid for the unem
ployed in the upper peninsula and one
car load of provisions was started today
from Lansing to Iron wood and Bessemer.
An official at Ironwood stated to an As
sociated Press correspondent that the
men were getting desperate, and unless
aid came within a few days there would
be an outbreak and bread riots. Thus
far tbe unemployed have been very or
derly, but they are now desperate from
continued destitution. To add to tbe
horror of the situation in Ironwood,
there has been a typhoid fever epidemic.
The indications are that about 10,000 or
12 000 of these people will have to be
fed and clothed until Bpring.

A VERY RADICAL MEASURE.
The New Tariff Bill About
to Be Promulgated.
It Makes Sweeping Reductions
All Along the Line.
The Wool Schedule Is the Same as
the Springer Bill.
Progressive Repeal of the Bngar Bounty
Decided Upon—Ad Valorem Dntlal
Take the Place of Specific
By the Associated Prast
Washington, Nov, 26.—The Demo
cratic membera of the committee on
ways and means completed the tariff
bill last night near midnight, the last
item finally acted upon being the sugar
schedule. The new bill, to be promul
gated tomorrow, will show the following
changes in the sugar schedule: Duty
on refined sugar reduced from one-half
to one-fourth cent per pound; raw
sugar remains free of tax. The McKin
ley bounty is repealed progressively;
that is, one-eighth each year, so at the
end of eight years it ia to cease entirely.
The bill will be laid before the full
membership of tbe ways and means
committee tomorrow morning, bo far
the Republicans of tbe committee know
nothing of the bill, except the knowl
edge derived from newspaper reports,
and it is not expected that tomorrow's
meeting will be a "deliberative" one.
The measure will be adopted by a strict

tbe internal revenue schedule will be
reserved until a later date, as it is not
yet completed. The changes of this
feature of the law, however, will be
In general terms, the new tariff bill
/will be called a radical measure. The
free list will include wool, iron ore, coal,
cotton ties, copper, lumber, chocolate,
salt, binding twine, flax, lead ore and
many other articles of less importance.
After two months of deliberation on
wool and woolen goods, the committee
finally decided to adopt the Springer
policy of last congress, and the wool
and woolen schedule will be as follows:
All wools, hair of the camel, goat, al
paca and other like animals, and all
wool and hair on the akin, and all waste
valued at not more than 30 cents per
pound, will be rated at 36 per cent,
wltich is the ad valorem rate under tbe
present law, without the specific duty
which that bill provides.
On all woolen and worsted manufac
tures valued at not more than 30 cents
per pound the duty is 40 per cent. On
blankets, hats or wool or flannel under
wear valued at not more than 30 cents
per pound the duty is 25 per cent;
valued at not more than 50 cents per
pound, the duty is 30 per cent; valued
at more than 50 cents per pound, the
duty is 35 per cent.
The schedule which includes women's
and children's dresa gooda, coat linings,
Italian clothe, etc., tbe warp of
which is cotton or other
vegetable matter, valued at not
exceeding 15 cents per square yard, a
duty of 35 per cent is placed. On
women's and children's dress goods,
etc., wholly or in part wool, worsted,
etc., the duty is fixed at 40 per cent.
On clothing ready-made and articles of
wearing apparel, a duty of 45 per cent is
placed. Qn cloaks, etc., for ladies and
children, the duty is 45 per cent, and on
webbing, suspenders, bolting, binding
braids, galloons, fringes, etc., 40 per
cent. On common carpets the duty will
be about 35 per [ cent, and on the finer
grades of carpets, all of which are taxed
40 per cent in the Springer bill, the
duty in this bill is somewhat leas.
Steel rails will probably be put at $8
or $9 a ton. Pig Iron will probably be
put at 5 per cent, while bar iron will be
reduced about 50 per cent.
Theirate on nearly all manufactures
of cotton will bo 40 per cent.
Manufactures of flax, hemp and jute
will be greatly reduced, in view of plac
ing raw materials on the free list.
The compound duty on collars and
cuffs, it ia said, will be abandoned, and
nothing left but an ad valorem rate of
35 or 40 per cent.
Tbe chinaware schedule will probably
be reduced 10 per cent.
The Republican members of the com
mittee are to be given 10 days time in
which to prepare a minority report, dis
senting from the recommendations of
the majority of the committee.
In regard to the now tariff bill, Chair
man Wilson said tonight: "The tariff
bill will be given to tbe public at 11
o'clock tomorrow looming, when the
committee meets. The regular schedule
we made public today because it was re
ported speculators were attempting to
manipulate tho market on the strength
of alleged inside information, and we
did box. desire to bo considered a party
to anythimi ot this kind."
The tariff bill will be quite voVnmin
oua. It will really comprise two bills in
one, as it will unbrace both tire cus
toms bill, proper, and the administrat
ive bill. In Borne provisions there
naturally will cc no change at all. .This
will particularly be true of the admin
istrative provisions, where changes, are
