Washington, Feb. 24. The silver
question apMars to bo in statu quo. Ah
far as can bo learned, Mr. Hohnan of
Indiana, the caucus chaiiman, has not
yet determined upon tho date on which
the caucus requested by Mr. Hartor and
associates, will bo held. It is not be
lieved the caucus will make any consid
erable advance toward a definito agree
ment. It is not thought either the silver
or anti-silver men will be bound by any
conclusion reached by the cauens as to
tho silver question that may be obi'ec
tionablo to them, so it is probable tho
caucus will bo no more than a conference
for the exchange of opinions. It is prob
able the Democratic members of tho
rules committee may meet prior to the
caucus and talk over the situation. Tho
silver men believe that an oider will bo
made civiiur tho Bland bill a day for
consideration. There is a disposition,
however, to talco up tho wool bill first.
Democratic members said the bill ought
not to occupy tho houso more than three
weeks and if it is necessary to prevent
undue delay the rules committee can and
doubtless will report a rule to bring tho
measure to a vote. Some appropriation
bills may then be put through before
proceeding with other matters. Tho
silver men aro content with this courno
and say all they ask is an assurance that
a programmo will bo laid out in which
silver will have a olace.
THROUGH A TRESTLE.

PiTTSMUiwi, Feb. 215. The Wheeling
express on tho Wheeling division of the
Baltimore and Ohio, with 100 passengers
on board, had a narrow escape from an
nwful nccident near White Hall, twelve
miles south of this city. Near Wlritt,
Hall, just around a curve, is a tempo
ral y trestle. The train was running at
tho rato of thirty-five miles an hour,
and when it rounded tho eurvo the en
feino struck a huge rock, which had
rolled from tho high embankment above
the railroad track. An awful crash fol
lowed. The engine broke trom the ten
der and left the track. The tender partly
broke from tho train nnd tho separated
part rushed into a mad race for the tes
tie. When the engine reached tho trestle
proper it seemed to stop suddenly and
plunge down tho embankment. The
train, grinding out flashes of fno from
tho rails, swept by it safely, being
stopped by tho air brakes at the other
end of tho trestle.
As the engine toppled over, Engineei
Mnhon was thrown out. He was found
some forty feet away from the engino in
the deep ravine. He wns unconscious
nnd is fatally injured.
Tho engine was crushed into a mass of
warped and shattered iron.
When tho engino stopped before its
plunge into tho ravine it threw Fiiemau
Lindo3 high into the air fiom tho cab.
Ho alighted on an embankment. His
shoulder was dislocated and ho wa
otherwise iniural. Tho tender left the
track when tho train stopped on tho
trestle and plunged into tho chasm bo
low without taking any of tho cara
with it, making a second miraculous
Tho passengers were badly frightened,
but beyond a shaking up were unin
jured. Thoy were brought to this city.
The accident is pronounced by railroad
men and travelers to bo ono of tho most
marvelous ever known to them.
I,bs Cotton, Morn Corn.
St. Louis, Feb. 21. The Globe-Democrat
prints a page of letters from corres
pondents throughout tho cotton belt in
reply to inquiries as to what tho pros
Iects for the acreago for 1892 aro at
Tho results of thoso inquiries show
that the losses for 1891 have been heavy.
As to reduced acreage thero seems to bo
bxit one opinion, and that is that thero
will be less cotton raised this year than
last. Planters are practically all agreed
that thoy must raise less cotton and
more corn and bacon, and they say they
aro going to do this. One of tho most
important evidences of this fact is that
theio has been a great decieaso in the
demand for fertilizers. Another indica
tion is that many planters aie now pre
paring lands for corn and other cereals,
tobacco and vegetables, in which cotton
was giown last year. This fact is noticed
in all the cotton producing states.
In the Memphis district and Red rivet
and Houston districts in Texas tho cor
respondents state thero will ho no de
crease. All tho others pi edict reduction,
ranging from 100 to 200 per cent.
The greatest reduction is apparently
reported in North Caioliim, wheio vir
tually an agricultural revolution is baid
to be under way.
Tho average reduction in South Caro
line is estimated at 200 per cent, in
Georgia from 15 to 20, in Mississippi
from 15 to 25, in Arkansas from 15 to 25,
Louisiana 10 to 20, Alabama 10 to 15 pet
Taking the cotton belt as a whole, it
seems safe to say thero will bo a decieaso
in the acieage of at least 50 per cent.
Kilvrnul 31. Field's S.mlt).
Nr.w Yomc, Fob. 21. Edward M.
Field, the head of the firm of Field,
Wischers, Lindloy & Co., was brought
before Judge Van Brunt in tho court ot
oyer and terminer for trial on one of the
six indictments charging grand larceny.
W. Bourko Cochran, counsel for Field,
objected to his being placed on trial,
stating that ho was insane and mentally
incapable of pleading to tho indictments.
Ho offered in support a certified copy ot
tho verdict of the jury at Whito Plains,
pionouncnig him insane.
District Attorney Nicoll suggested
jury to try tho question of Field's sanity.
