At the Rate of 4300 Words a Minut
By the Syncronograph
The Speed at Which Messages Can Be Sen
By This New and Wonderful System Is
Limited Only By the Revolutions
of the Electrical Dynamo
Omaha Neb Sept 8 The Bee Wed
nesday morning prints a letter from
Lieut George C Squier U S A to
Hon E Eosewater giving the results
of a test of the Squier Crehore syn
cronograph system of telegraphing
In the letter Lieut Squier says
On August 22 over a line from Lon
don via York to Aberdeen and return
to London a distance of over 1100
miles -including over eighty miles
of underground cable we sent
messages at the rate of
4300 words per minute and this speed
was only limited by the particular dyn
amo available We have also tried a
cable representing the German cable
of 120 knots from here to Germany and
sent over it the rate of 1300 words per
minute Our apparatus is mounted in
the general post office London from
which point the experiments thus far
have been made
Commenting on this the Bee says
By the employment of the syncrono
graph 500 words a minute can be easily
sent across the Atlantic cable The
inventors claim that their very suc
cessful trials in England demonstrate
the possibility of sending press mes
sages between New York and Chicago
at such a speed that the entire contents
of a newspaper could be transmitted in
an hour and the statement does not
appear unreasonable in the light of
their recent success The speed at
which messages under this new and
wonderful system may be sent is limit
ed only by the speed at which an elec
trical dynamo can be made to revolve
The messages are both sent and re
ceived by the aid of a dynamo It is
believed that with the successful oper
ation of the system letters up to the
length of 500 words can be transmitted
by the telegraph at no greater cost
than by the postal rates now in effect
SIX DEAD
Terrible Nitro Glycerine Explosion at Cyg
net O The Country for Miles Around
Trembled From the Shock
Cygnet 0 Sept 8 A terrible ex
plosion of nitro glycerine occurred
here Tuesday afternoon at 3 oclock
which resulted in the death of six peo
ple whose names are known and others
at present unknown
The killed Sam Barber Allen Fallis
John Thompson Charles Bartel Henry
Lansdale Havens a boy
The explosion occurred at the Grant
well located at the rear of the National
Supply Cos office building in the vil
lage limits The well had just been
shot by Samuel Barber the shooter for
the Ohio and Indiana Torpedo Co The
well was a gasser and when the 120
quarts of glycerine in the well ex
ploded the gas ignited and with a ter
rific roar the flames shot high above the
derrick As soon as the drillers saw
the flames several climbed into the der
rick to shut off the gas but they had
hardly gotten there when there was a
terrific explosion The burning gas
had started the remaining glycerine in
the empty cans standing in a wagon near
the derrick In another wagon nearby
were some cans containing another
120 quarts of the stuff and this was
started by the force of the first explo
sion
The second was blended with the first
in a mighty roar and the town and sur
rounding country for miles trembled
from the shock
The National Supply Cors building
was completely demolished and noth
ing remains but a big hole where the
wagons stood There is not a whole
pane of glass in any window in town
and every house and store was shaken
to its foundations There was awful
excitement over the affair and all the
remaining population of the town
rushed to the spot Who the men are
who were in the derrick and who were
killed can not now be learned owing ta
the excitement
The damage to the Ohio Oil Co will
amount to 3000 Eight buildings are
a total wreck and others are damaged
The town has a population of about
1200 Many bystanders were wounded

THE INTERSTATE
pr

THE BOUKBON NEWspFRIDAY SEPTEMBER 10 1897
Miners Convention Adjoarn UatU qcharg
day Without Taking a Vote Acceptance
of tho Operators Offer Doubtful v
Columbus O Sept 9 -The inter
state miners convention adjourned
Wednesday evening until Thursday
morning without having taken a vote
on the question of accepting ofeject
ing the proposed settlement bf the
strike
The prospects for the acceptance of
the settlement are somewhat doubtful
in fact a canvass of the situation shows
a majority of the votes unless some
change should be brought about will
be cast against it The greater part
of the afternoon session of the
convention was secret the delegates
listening to speeches from- National
President Eatchford and State Presi
dents Farms of Ohio Knight of Indi
ana Carson of Illinois and Dolan of
Pittsburgh All of the officials with
the exception of Mr Carson argued in
favor of the acceptance of the Pitts
burgh operators proposition They
told the delegates very plainly that if
the proposition was rejected the strike
would fail utterly that the contest
could not be continued as all re
sources had been exhausted They
advised- that inasmuch as tha
strike had been precipitated ra
the Pittsburgh district it was
very proper that it should be settled
there President Carson of Illinois
told the delegates just as plainly why
he could not support the proposition
for a settlement He said the Illinois
miners were practically ignored by it
The operators of his state had notified
him that they would not abide by any
settlement made with the Pittsburgh
operators In many of the Hlinois dis
tricts moreover the miners had
signed ironclad contracts which run
until next May Should the Pitts
burgh Ohio and Indiana miners resume
operation the Illinois operators would
be compelled to open their mines also
and the only recourse the miners of the
state would have would be a local
strike for which they were unprepared
The best they could do would be to ac
cept the operators terms and- that
would eventually force a reduction
again in the other states
The most important action of the
convention Wednesday was in deter
mining the basis of representation
Some of the delegates wanted a rule
that no delegate be allowed to cast
more than six votes This if adopt
ed it is claimed would have
settled the question of the acceptance
of the strike settlement very quicky
It was the sentiment of the convention
however that representation should
be fixed so that all miners should have
a voice in the settlement Accordingly
it was decided that one vote should be
cast for every 100 miners represented
This makes the votes to be cast by
each state about as follows
Western Pennsylvania 230 Ohio 280
West Virginia 110 Indiana GO Illi
nois 200
The Hlinois vote which will be cast
against the acceptance of the operators
proposition will about offset the tvote
of western PennsylvaniaPittsMrgh
district The vote of Ohio isabut
equally divided on the proposition also
the West Virginia This practically
leaves the balance of power in the
hands of the Indiana delegates Should
they vote with Illinois which some
of the delegates say they have
instructions to do by inference if
not by direct language the proposed
settlement will undoubtedly be
defeated The Indiana delegates say
they are instructed not to vote in favor
of the operators proposition unless a
general settlement will be effected by
it In view of the position of the
Illinois miners they do not see their
way clear to vote to accept the propo
sition It develops Wednesday night
that the vote of the Pittsburgh district
will not be unanimous in favor of ac
cepting the settlement as some of the
delegates have stated openly they
would not vote for it The leaders of
the miners were doing some quiet
missionary work Wednesday night

ATTEMPTED EVICTION
Armed Deputies Receive Rough Treat
ment and Were Forced to Retreat
At Gastonville They Took Refuge in the
Companys Office TVhere They Were
Bombarded All Night With Stones
and Bricks Several Were Injured
Pittsburgh Pa Sept 8 The efforts
to evict the striking miners of the
Pittsburgh and Chicago Gas Coal Co
at Orangeville one and a half miles
from Gastonville resulted in a riot of
no mean proportions and the utter
failure on the part of the company to
accomplish its object
When the news was received that
the eviction were to be attempted
the whole vicinity about Finley
ville Gastonville and Orangeville
became wildly excited About 7
oclock Monday night 20 dep
uties from Washington Pa in charge
of Chief Deputy Joseph Hemphill
reached Finleyville where they were
met by a large crowd of strikers and
their friends Each deputy was armed
with a Winchester rifle and a revolver
but in spite of this the strikers headed
by 100 Polish women closed in on them
and the deputies received rough treat
ment They were forced back and
finally retreated to Gastonville where
they were followed by a crowd of
about 200 men and women At Gaston
ville the deputies took refuge in the
office of the company where they were
kept all night during which the build
ing was bombarded with stones and
bricks and an occasional shot was fired
At 7 oclock Tuesday morning the trou
ble of the night reached a climax when
the deputies sallied out from their be
sieged quarters and started to march to
Orangeville Each one carried his Win
chester in his hands and his revolver
was exposed but these had no ter
rors for the besiegers Headed by the
same women the strikers rushed on
the deputies with stones clubs and
pickhandles and blows fell thick and
fast One of the big women wrested
the rifle from a deputys hands and
struck him on the head inflicting ser
ious injury By this time 1000 men
women and children had joined the
crowd They came from Venetia
Snowden Calamity and Finleyville
The deputies slowly made their way to
Orangeville taking all of the above in
sults and injuries but never firing a
shot finally took refuge in a vacant
house closely followed by the mob
which quickly surrounded the building
and threatened to burn it Finally one
of the strikers approached the house
with a flag of truce and a conference
was held The deputies were ordered
to leave town and after a short parley
decided to do so They emerged from
the house a badly scared lot of men
and walking between the opened ranks
of the strikers started for Gastonville
Almost every man in the posse was cut
and bleeding and several were serious
ly hurt One had his right hand
almost severed by a sharp stone As
the defeated deputies ran the gauntlet
thevwere greeted -with hisses nurses
pand ridicule The strikers then3 closed
behind them and marched them to the
station where they took the train for
Washington
After their departure the mob dis
persed and everything is quiet now
The officials of the company say no
furthur attempt will be made to evict
the miners for the present

WORST WRECK
In the History of the Santa Fe Koad Near
Emporia Kan Ten or Eleven Persons
Killed and Fully as Many Injured
Kansas City Mo Sept 9 A spe
cial to the Times from Emporia Kan
Jays
One of the worst wrecks in the his
tory of the Santa Fe railroad occurred
three miles east of here at about 730
oclock Wednesday night Ten or
twelve persons were killed and as
many more were badly hurt The fast
mail train going east and the Mex
ico California express west
bound collided head on The Mex
ico California express was pulled
by two locomotives and when they
struck the engine drawing the fast
mail the boilers of all three engines
exploded and tore a hold in the ground
so deep that the smoking cars of the
westbound train went in on top ol
three engines and two mail cars and
balanced there without turning over
The passengers in the smoking car es
caped through the windows The
frond end of this car was
enveloped in a volume of stifling
smoke and steam belching up from the
wreck below and the rear door was
jammed tight in the wreck of the car
behind The wreck caught fire from
the engines The cars in the hole and
the smoking car burned to ashes in no
time In climbing out of the smoking
car several men fell through the
rifts in the wreck below and
it is impossible to tell whether
they escaped or were burned to
death The west bound train carried
seven or eight coaches and its pas
sengers included many excursionists
who had been to hear HonW J Bryan
speak at the county fair at Burlingame
Mr Bryan himself was on the train
but was riding in the rear Pullman
some 400 feet from the cars which were
wrecked He states that nothing but
a heavy jolt was experienced by the
passengers in his coach
Mr Bryan was one of the noblest
men in the crowd of rescuers He
helped to carry out the dead and
wounded and gave the greatest atten
tion to their care One poor fellow
who was badly maimed called to Mr
Bryan and said
I went to hear you to day I am dy
ing now and want to shake your hand
and say God bless you If you pos
sibly can Mr Bryan get me a drink of
water
Mr Bryan went into the fast mail
car one end of which was burning and
came out with the drink of water
which he gave to the suffering passen
ger He brought out cushions for oth
ers of the injured and was every
where present to minister to the wants
of the suffering
The engineer of the westbound train
had received orders to meet the fast
mail at Emporia and w2s making up
lost time These two are the fastest
trains in the Sante Fe system and the
westbound train must have been run
ning at a speed of at least 40 miles an
hour The westbound express was go
ing around a slight curve and met the
fast mail probably within 200 feet
Of the seven or eight cars making up
the Mexico and California express only
the mail baggage express and smok
ing cars were destroyed The coach
following the smoker was badly splint
ered
There were not more than a dozen
passengers on the fast mail all in one
coach and while none of them were
seriously injured their shaking up was
texrible Every seat in the coach was
torn from the floor and many floor
planks came up with the seats
One man John Sweeney was thrown
oyer three seats and through a win
dow but escaped with only scratches
and bruises The other cars of the
fast mail train a baggage and an ex
press were totally wrecked
It is stated that the wreck was caus
ed by a miscarriage of oders from the
trainmaster At Emporia the oast
bound fast mail train received orders
to pass the California express at Lang
seven miles east Another order was
sent to Lang for the California express
to take the siding there
But this order was not delivered and
the westbound train passed on the
trainmen expecting to pass the fast
mail at Emporia
At midnight it becomes apparent
that the earlier estimates of the
ber of dead were exaggerated and it is
now apparent that the number of dead
will not exceed ten or eleven During
the excitement early in the evening it
was reported that nearly all of the six
postal clerks on the two trains were
killed or missing Two of the clerks
were killed All of the others save
one are more or less seriously in
jured
The mail clerks who are hurt are Wr
F Jones R O McGee and Claud Hol
liday The latter may die as both his
legs are broken and he is otherwise
badly hurt Clerk E C Letcher es
caped serious injury
The dead were brought to Emporia
At midnight a special train left Em
poria bearing 17 of the injured to To
peka where they will be cared for in
the railroad hospital
