Denver, Col., Aug. 3. Train No. 3 on
the Kansas Pacific from Kansas City, due
in Denver at -4-05 this morning plunged
Into a culvert at 3:30, killing two men

be applied, dragging In after it the hag
gage car and the first coach. The wrecked
engine and cars piled one on top ot an
other. Engineer Ward was instantly killed, his
death being a. fearful one heneatti the ex
ploded engine and boiler. The express
messenger was crushed Instantly to a pulp
as the baggage car fell oier the tender.
It Is r osfiblc that the chair car, which was
badly smashed, may be the tomb of seeral
more of the badly injured before the wreck

carrying surgeons and assistants was im

"The miners' suspension Is not onlv a
success, but a credit to thoRe engaged
In It. It ip successful because of the large

throughout, aud creditable because of the

points to the fact that the movement has
not yet reached Its greatest force neither

up the fight, and unless a settlement is
reported within the next two weeks, a

be pardoned by Spain and means given
to the poor among them to return to their
native land. i

Spain to Cuba. Under this new system,
the Cuban municipalities will be authorised
to control their .finances. A general as

and proincial arf airs.
The captaln-generalf will preside over
this l)od;, and lra.e a right to veto its de

submitted to the minister of tl'e colonies

The above plan is said to be a step
in advance of the earlier scheme of re
forms proposed by the government. Not
a word is said in this scheme about the
debt or nearly $500,000,000, but Cuba
is made responsible for this debt, after
the conclusion of peace, In all the con
tracts signed by the Spanish government
with money lenders. Furthermore, the
whole plan leaves the fate of the Cubans
absolutely in the hands of the captain
general and the Madrid government, as
it hasalways been.
As The Times' correspondent has al
Teadv announced, Gen. Gomez rejected
the proposals with scorn, and there is
not a Cuban in'he field who would accept
them'. , Z

for the first time since Paramount Blount
hauled down the flag raised by Minister

story comes rrom theiunermost official
circles, and it -was said to your corre-,
spondent that the thing would rarely be
done on August 2.0 . T
Admiral Beardsiee will be oirkand with
bis marines and bluejackets, to add pres
tige to the occasion. The Hawaiian na
tional guard will also be under arms and
ready for action, and the citizens guard,
still a larger body ot trained men, will be
notified to be ready to respond if called
A protectorate is to be declared, so the
Mory g-jes, because the Hawaiian govern
ment iIoph not feel that it can stand alone
during the long months that must elapse
before Congress meets again In pecemher.
Tbe opinion is. however, almost universal
here that the Moana will bring news that
annexation is victorious. Everything la
in readiness Tor a grand celebration ot the
Ex-United States Minister Dun, who is
on his way home from Japan, passed
tnrough here tcdayon the steamer Belglc.
He expressed the opinion that the islands
aie too small and unimportant to consider
when annexation might cause the rupture
or friendly relations between the United
States and Japan. He does not look for
any rupture between the two countries.
Dun does, however, believe that Japan
ha a just ciaim against the Hawaiian
government in connection with recent-immigration
trouble, although she is not
likely tc enforce it in case Hawaii refuses
to recognize the claim.
