Sixty-Two Out of 127 I'nRSCiiger
Aboard Injured, Ncvcrnl Futility
Snmcs of the Injured Xoboily to
Cincinnati, April 1. A tcrriblo accident
on tho Cincinnati Southern Railroad
Friday morning startled tho pcoplo of
Cincinnati and the surrounding towns,
when the news, after much delay, was "permitted
to be given out, which was not
until some time after noon. Train No. C,
which left Chattanooga at 4:80 p.m. on
Thursday, struck a broken rail one mile
south of Muson Station, forty-one
miles from Ciucinnntl, at C 'o'clock
in the morning, and tho cntiro train,
except tho locomotive and baggage car, was
thrown over an embankment fifty feet high.
Thero wore 127 passengers on board, many
of whom were in the sleepers, of which
were two, attached to the train, and perhaps
most of them were asleep at the time
The train consisted of a baggago car, smoking
car, one coach, and two
sleeper. Tho train at the time
was running at tho rate of forty
miles an hour arouud a slight curve, and
the crash as the cars crowded upon cacli
other and then dashed over the frightful
declivity must have been terrible. Sixty-two
peion were injured, but none were
killed, strange to say, but several of the
wounded are so seriously hurt that they
can not recover. The list of wounded and
their pluccs of residence are given further
The cause of the accident is attributed to
a broken rail, caused by a freight train
which had passed over the track but a
short time before. The engineer, as the
headlight flushed its rays a hundred feet
ahead of the locumothe, saw tho broken
rail, but was too lMe to stop the train, and
the human being., unconscious of their
danger, and asleep or thinking of family
and friends they were soon to meet, were
suddenly awaken d. or realized in tbe
moment the inviul that awaited
them. The scenes ilmt lol lowed, as in all
such caitC.s, are beyond description. Even'
those who are in them fail utterly to give
uuy clear account, and all attempts at description
by other is the work of imagination
purely. One fact is patent, aud no one
cuu blnuie them namely, that the few train
employes were pauic stricken. But as
soon us they and tbe uninjured could do so,
tho wounded were extricated and cared for
as best could be done.
Passengers state that the walls and cries
of women and children- wero heartrending.
A teleguuu was sent to Williamstown, nnd
such conveyances as could be socured were
hurriedly dispatched to tho sccno of tho
accident, aud the wounded wore takon to
the town, where their wounds were dressod.
A train was made up and oamo to tho city,
arriving hero at 2 p. in., and most of the
wounded were taken to tie Cinoinnnti Hospital.
Those slightly hurt went to hotels,
or continued their journeys on the evening
To add to the horror of the accident, one
car took (ho and seemed destined to burn
before those confined benpath it could ho
rescued. Fortunately, by prompt work,
the Humes, were extinguished, andthe fearful
death by burning was not added to tho
The uurac of the engineer of the wreaked
train could not be learned last night. He
is said to bo a new man, but no blamo is
attached to him. Conduotor Ward was in
charge of the train.
E. D. Emery, of Athens, Ga., states that
ho was iu the ladies' car when it went
down the embankment. He elinched to
one of the scats, and did not know
anything, as the shock knooked him
senseless. When ho recovered consciousness
he found the car ablaze, and
heard the screams oi a woman. He rushed
to her and took her out, thus saving her
life. The excitement was too great to
learn her name, aud ho left her too look
after his baggage, which ho was unable to
Jamo.s A. Spaulding was in the samo car
with Mr. Emery. Tho car which these two
gentlemen were in turned several times

Coluhsus, 0., March 31. The Ohio Wool
Growers' Association met yosterday in tho
offioe of the State Board of Agrioulture,
with President Columbus Delano in
the chair. Forty-seven members were
present. The report of tho committee
sent to Washington to oppose the wool
feature in the-tariff bill was read and commended.
It gave in detail the action of
the committee while in Washington, uud
demonstrated in strong language the injustice
done to the wool growers by the tariff
legislation, in respect to raw wool by tho
reduction thereon, while thorc was a
increase iu favor in' manufacturers of
The President made a report in regard to
his efforts to induce Sen u tor Shurmau to
vote uguinst the bill, and said that thoy expected
Sherman to vote in their favor;
that the dufeul wui brought about by tho
woolen manufacturing interests
of New England, and t mt in all his experience
in Congress lie hud nover seen so
strong a lobby as there was iu behalf of I

passed by a communnto stroke on tho part I
of its advocates, by taking it up out of ita i
regular order and crowding it through.
Resolutions wero adopted strongly condemnatory
of the action of Congress on tho
wool question, especially as to its bearing
against tho wool growing interests of the

London, Maroh 81. An important interview
with Mr. Parnell was had to-day
by a correspondent. Tho first question
was whether ho thought that the measures
of repression would btoomo yot moro
stringont in consequents of the recent
events in London, which havo been attributed
to Irish revolutionary agents.
Mr. Parnell sntilod Ironically and said:
"Tho soverity of Bngland oannot be werso
than it is without sho has recourse to a
sanguinary repression. Wo already live
under a veritable state of scige."
" Is there still as uoh want and misery
ia Ireland as was reoently reported 1"
"There is much store. Since tho Land
Lesguo was dissolved, tko destitution of tho
peasantry has mods rapid strides. I and
ay friends havo no moro funds at our disposal
and if wo attempted to raise any wo
would b saet at evaty step by tho
opposition of tho JtaglUh Government."
" But does not tho Government itself extend
aid to the starving poof le ? M
" Govoiumont aid ia Ireland Is oonfiacd
solely to the work-houses, and they aro so
organized and goveraod that they resemble
nothing but houses of detention. Ratktr
than enter them tho people prefer to die,
and thoy do die."
"Can you give any reason why England

daliberatly adopted, and remorselessly practiced
to forco the peasantry to emigrate.
It would be a rood riddance for hrr. On
the day when the last Irishman shall abandon
his country, or die of starvation on the
land he no longor can cultivate, Ihiglatu
' Will not ?ome relief follow the gathering

No, for the rennou that thrre are no

Washington, April 1. The Star
trial opened Sa'u day with a duiuati'l foi
Uoivev's bv Merrick. Dor-tm
he would produce the book if it did no!
contain names that had no business to It-bi
ought into his case. Dorsey thcu ii
HPstioned about the inter iew with Boone,
that the latter had testified to. It a coi
rect, ho said, except that one-third
iu the bids hid beuu settle 1 on us going to
Boono for his services in getting them up.
Dor.sey said he had opposed his biother's
and Peck's going into the mail ooutia.'t
business because they hud not nuiuc
The Cloudeniu bonds wero then brought
up, and the witness explained that ho supposed
they wore made out according to
universal custom, and asserted that there
was nothing unlawful about them.
Merrick here wanted to read a letter to
tho witness, whioh was claimed to bo written
by tho witness, but the court ruled that
all sttoh loiters must bo read
by tho witness' counsel, as tbo witness'
eyosight was too bad for him to read
letters or papers. The lettor was admitted,
and was from Dorsoy, to Clendeniu, postmaster
at Bntesville, Ark., written after
Clemlonin had declined to certify to the
boud.s. Dorsey wrote that he bad uot seen
tho bonds, and had no interest in them ;
that thoy wero sent him by Boone, a
mutual friend. Dorsey went on to say that
Judge Edmonds, the ostuinster hore, was
in tbo habit of certifying to such bonds
without knowing the bouds, regarding tho
certificate under tho law, as tho expression
of an opinion, and not tho certificate of a
fact. He clonod tho lettor by saying: " I
have nothing more to do with the bouds,
You can send them to Adams, return them
to Boone, or burn them tip. It is a mutter
of total indifference to mo which you do,"
Referring to a sub-contract which he was
charged with changing, he asked what por
cent, the sub-contractor was to got of the
increaso and expedition of tho route.
" Sixty-five," said Merriok. Dorsey replied,
enooringly, " Well, if tho
got 05 per oent., and Brady 83 per
cent., thero was not much show for the contractor."
Dorsey is still on tho stand.

Wasiiinoton, April 1. A groat deal has
been said about the niokel pieoes, but a
! stnuowhat startling discovery was mado
this afternoon, which is convincing evidence
that tho now pieces aro playing tho
role of "heavy villian" on our monetary
" I)J von know," said a prominent seoret
service officer, " that arrests of parties
engaged in gilding and passing tho
now niokels as $5 gold pieces havo
boen mado by our men in California,
St. Louis, Pittsburg, Chicago,
Louisiana, Nashville, New York, Boston,
Kansas City, Duhuque,' and other places?"
" Well, no," I respondod. " But thore
have," continued tho officer; "and complaints
are being roceived every day from
all parts of the country. Some District
Attorneys are in doubt as to tho law in
juch cases, but several havo already found
intliotmeuts against the guilty parties."
"How does tho Solicitor of the Treasury
regard the matter?" 1 quoriod. "Oh, ho
has no doubt as to tho act of gilding tho
pieces being one of counterfeiting, and that
all persons possessing such gilded coins aro
liable at any time to be compelled to show
honest intentions in their possession."
" Will tho fact that the word 'cents ' is
to be added to the new pieces docrease tho
habit of gilding?"
" No, not raatorially. Tho ignorant and
many intelligent persons will still aeeept
them as $5 pieces, as tho reverse of tho
piece is very similar to the gold coin."
Another Treasury official said tho nieklo
pieoes were a grave mistake, and that they
should never havo been made. " Why," ho
said, " men are paying a premium for
thom, and tho reoorda of the Secret Servico
will skow their purpose in doing this."
Thoy wore designed to perpetuate somebody's
memory, and they will do it. Tho
penitentiaries will soon bo full of living
monuments to tho greatness of their Inventor.

case ; that tho counsel was right
when he &aid that Blaokstone did not put

Kansas Ctrir, Mo., April 1. Charles
Ford, the remover of Jesse James has
turned from his Eastern starring " engagement.
He tells u straight sl6ryofthe killing of
Wood Kite by Dick Llddle, and tho circumstances
which led Jo the suit for $25,-000
damages instituted by Mrs. Hite,
Wood's stopmother, against the Louisville
Courier-Journal. Tho Courier-Journal said
that Jesse James had been criminally intimate
with Mrs. Hito. This was an alleged
libel. Governor Crittenden, of Missouri,
was a witness in tho caso, which
was won by tho paper. Charley Por'd
states that Jesso James novor had
anything to do with Mrs. Hite. Ho never
ran after women. Tho man, he says, who
did visit Mrs. Hito was. Dick Liddle. 'Afterwards
Diok discovered that Mrs. Hito was
sending lovo mossages to ono Hibbitt. JUito
killed tho colored man who carried tho
mossages. Hito was arrested by Policeman
J. E. Etor, of this city, then marshal of

Bolton's, tho sister of tho Ford boys, a milo
and a half from Riohmond, Mo. Hero ho

hid his body in a spring. This is tho first

of tho suit.
