A CLOSE CALL.
How an Engineer Prevented a Great
An aecident occurred on the New York
and Long Branch railroad which narrowly
missed becominr a terrible disaster, but
which fortunately resulted without loss of
llfe or serious injury to any person. The
train which left Long Branch at 8:15 a. m.,
comprislng three cars, was doubled at Red
Bank by the addition of three cars from
Lakewood. All the ears were full of pas
sengers, chiely New York business men,
although a number of ladies were also on
board. Near Matawan there Is a railroad
bridge between 000 and 300 feet long, span
ning a ravine, some 75 feet deep. When the
train was within 50 or 80 feet of this bridge
the rear truck of the third car got off the
track, it is supposed, In eonsequence of a :
broken frog. The three following cars were
then draggedoff the track and ran along on
the ties. Great credit is given to the en
Sineer, who put on fall steam as the train
reached the bridge, and thereby pulled the
train over. If he had attempted to slow up,
it is said, the cars would inevitably have
run of the bridge and plunged into the ra
vine. In that event, it Is almost certain.
there would have been a fngtful loss of
life. The trucks were ripped off the carp as
they were pulled along the ties and the last
car was actually dragged over the bridge up
on its bottom. All the windows hluthe latter
car were shattered by the shock and Its
woodwork badlysplinteed. Thei ak was
also partlyv torn up.
Gre t alarm of course, prevailed among 1
the passengers, who aumped or were jolted
from their seats and were dreading every 1
moment, as the bidge was traversed, that
they would be hurled Into the abyss be
neath. One of them In giving an amount
of the accident, remarked that he served in
the war, but that he never before felt that
he had so "close a call" as this.
STOLE A OUSB.
A Robbery That Is Perhaps Without
Probably the most remarkable robbery o
record In any country was reported to the
mayor's offce in Louisville, Ky., by Mrs.
Rosa, a well4o0of lady, aged, perhaps, 8I
years, who lived In the country about six
miles from the city. The story she tells
sounds more like the nonsemalcal mumbling
of a lanatic than the revelation of a sane
person, but it is true in every particular.
Mrs. Ross said she is the owner of a lot on
the orner of Fifteenth and Prentice streets,

account which I have written I have given
but two pages to the question of the respon

I . R BAYARD'S SORROW.
Sudden Death of the Secretary's
Daughter in Washington.
The Dark winged Messenger throws
a Pall Overthe Festive Season.
Washington, D. C., Jan. ir,.-Special.
Miss Kate Bayard, eldest daughter of the
Secretary of State, died suddenly at her
home this afternoon about 3 o'cl(ek. She is
supposed by the doctors who were called in
Sto have died of heart disease, but beyond
this very little is known of the sad affair.
Miss Bayard was expected to receive this at
terneon at the White house, all the ladies
in the families of the cabinet oflict~rs having
been invited to assist Miss Cleveland, but I
when a mnember of the Secretary's family k
went to her room to see if she was ready to o
go, she was found Ivii g on her bed a corpse.
That much has been told to the friends who
crowded to Mr. Iayartd's house as soon as
the afficlion whiel. had befallen him beaeme
known, but no further details were given.
A number of ladies and other callers were
already at the White House, when the in
telligence of Mias Bayard's death reached
there, so that the news spread around in
society very quickly and a treat many peo
ple went at once to the Bayard mansion to o
leave their cards as a token of sympathy
and gathered whatcould tie learned astotle
cause of the sadden and unexpected event.
Orders were at once given at the White i
House to admit no visitors, and Miss Cleve
land dismissed the friends who were with
her. The President was also denied to all '
visitors, and messages were sent out to p
auests who had been asked to a dinner at
the executive mansion on Monday evening,
countermanding their invitations. ,
No lady in Washington was better known t
than Miss Bayard. She was generally ad- un
mired and very popular, exceptional graces at
of person and of mind justifying in her case
an unusual distinction among her sex. She o0
is repiesented by those who were well ac
quainted with her as a lady of more than
ordinary intellectual power and wide infor
mation, sm that she was more of a compan
ion to her father than is often the case with H
the daughter of a public man. She was de
voted to society pleasures, and it Is general
ly fancied that her death may have been in b.
some degree due to the inevitable fatigues ly
of society life in Washington, where there bi
is a ceaseless round of gayeties night and d
day for a matter of two months after the re
social season begins on the 1st of January. to
Miss Bayard assisted her mother in receiv
ing numerous guests at a card reception p(
last night, but all of these had left the house 8
by midnight, and those who were there le
during the evening say she showed no signs t,
of ill health. She is said to have complained t
a little of a cold, but it was apparently noth- t
ing serious, and there was not the slightest de
forewarning in her appearance of the death th
so near at hand.
This afternoon, as the time approached fI
for Miss Clevelanl's reception that lady at
and her guests. Mrs. Atly and Miss Love, Ti
who were also to assist at the reception ihi
were awaiting Moss Bayard's arrival when sil
they heard the news of her death. It was oD
just five minutes to 3 o'clock, and the recep- hi
tion was to begin on the hour. The Marine ev
tand was stationed in the main vestibule n,
and the leader was conversing with Col. J. sq
M. Wilson with regard to playing a tune as ri
; signal for the opening of the reception. all
Many callers had salready arrived and were
waiting for the doors of the blue room to be
thrown open. The President was entared th
m conversation with a visitor in the library,
sad Miss Cleveland and her guests were
chatting with CoL Lamont in the parlor on
the second floor, prior to descending to the th
blue room, where the recention was to take mI
place. The absence of Miss Bayard was Co
commented on as singular, as she was er
usually very prompt in such matters and as
was momentarily expected to arrive.
While they were wondering at her delay
a messenger notified Col. Lamont that Mr.
Harry Bryan. private secretary to Seeretary
Bayard, was in the oreeand had something
important to comtmleate to the President.
CoL Lamont excused himself sa went to
see Mr. Bryan. That gentleman informed a
him that Miss Badwas dead, and that
Secretary Bayard had instrneted him to e
communicate thbe at to tae President. Col. Fr
Lamont at once Informed the Prmesident,
who was very much shockeed at the unmx
reeted intelligenee, and the twoetlemen OA
oined the ladles ad anaounced the sdden "
death of their friend.
The immediate ease of Miss rByard's
death was disease of the heart 8lhe had q
been troubled with weakness of that orglan i
and had beemtrsatedb3 thefamily physlesan
at intervals for several years. At the re
ception at her father's house las night it
was remarked tlt Miss rd wBas unusu
ally animated and exerted salto the ut- Sa
most to entertain the guests. It is presumed '
that the andue exertion may have preepi- w
tatedthe fatal attaek. The yoMng lady re
tired about 1 o'clock last nalht expressinga c
wish to be left undisturbed till noon. Be- o
tween 1 and oelock ths afternoon her sie
ter enseavored to awaken her and, struck T
by the pecuiar expressionmm of her face called
for assistance. As soon as the tamily re
covered from the coasternation into which
electrieIty, were apled but in rin a. bs
physctas exprssed the opinion that Miss m
Brd had bendead several hours when -
the attpt was made to waken her.

weeks ago he walked into a saloon on Bank

displayed two revolvers: "I will shoot the
first pohieeman who lays hands on me.'
Tuesday the pollee learned that Foster ad

LOVE'S WILD CHASE.

Theda A. Strumblis, of Rollin, Mieb., a
bright and pretty young lady of good fami

return, and while waiting for her train, she c
told her story.
Several months ago she began a eorres
pondence with a young man named George
Benjamin, whom she had never seen. The 1
letters between them became more frequent
and affectionate until a marriage engage
ment was made. Theceremony wastohave
been performed on New Years, but on that
day the expectant bride, having trade all
the preparae lons for the wed ting, received a
tolegram from Benjamin's sister announeag
that George was very low with typho:d
fever, and could not keep his engagement
and that he was continually asking for t
Theda. The telegram urged her to come to
his bedside, and she hurried as fass as poe.

having dark hair and moustache. With ,
evident disgust the young woman said be
proved to be red-headed, pug-nosed and t
squint-eyed. He was not sice when she at
rived at his house, and had not been ill at t
all. There was a scene there, and the dis
appointed and foolish girl returned to her t
home, refusing to have anything to do with
the note paper lover. C

SENATOR COKL'S VIEWS.
He Takes a Decided Stand In Favo

Mr. Coke called tiup Bek's silver i"i.li

The question of the satlenl nt ,f the -i

A suspension Mr. Coke regarded as t:ltit
mount to a complete stiplpace of si'\v
coinage. Silver had not depreciatedl, lu
gold had risen in value. He showed by sts
tistics that taking ninety leading articles o
merchandise there had ee an a average fal
of 26 per cent. since 1570. while there hat
been a fall of only 23 per cent. in silver bil
lion. It was therelore ann ahus.e f ti'rmis i
say that silver had depreciated. Silver cein
stitutedl one-half the quantity of :ll the cit

RELFIRHNESR l l'L.Ei. IV:IR EN FlIEt-.
When Germany had secured $1.:J0.0it)(ii
of gold from France shei demlllnetizsd silvel
for the same reason that Eingland hadl donlle
so. It was done upon a cold caleulati,,n o
self Interest. The same ri ason actuated thi
creditor section of these United States-the
section where the big banks and large bond
holders were. The fight against silver was
a fight against the people by the banks and
bondholders. It was a fight against labor,
Had Andrew Jackson been in the White
house at any time since 1878, the silvet
question would have been settled. He w, uld
have executed the laws of the United States
and would have taken by the throat the con,
spiracy arainst these laws, and the officer+
of the government had failed to state the
whole truth as to the silver circulation.
They well know that there to day is $1(
of silver In circulation to $1 of cold coin,
and that three quarters of the silver In the
treasury is represented by silver certifi
cates in active cireulation among the people,
maintaining priees and wages. Every frm
of money except national bank notes had
been boldly denounced by the treasury ,fli
eials, and if they had their way the country
would be at the mercy. of the national
BANK Mnx's AROUMENTS ANSWERED.
Mr. Coke made no war on the bondhold
ersa or on the bank men. They were no
worse nor no better than the average ol men,
buint they should never be permitted to die
tateAmerica's finaneial pollcy aglinst the
interests of the people. The president and
thesecretary of the treasury proleed to
favor the use of both gold and silver, but
declared that the amount of silver already
coined was enough, and that if the govern
ment continued to coIn it gold wou'd leave
the c untry. This saatme,,t was made In
the face of the tact that in 1876, when the
coin-geof the silver dollars was ordered,
there was in the Uttted States Olyl 8514,
000,000 In gold, while to-dar, accordling to
the report of the director of the liret. the
gold coin and bullion in the United States
hadincreased to $600 000.000. S, that in
stead of silver coinage having driven rold
out of the country, the slpiply of it had
been trebled since the silver coinage had
commenred. This wasa fact that noi theo
rising could controvert.
The silver standard had no terrors for Mr.
Coke. Germany had been a silver country
before it had got so much enll from France.
France was one of the most thrifty n:tions
in the world, and France had $SC0i.000,000-
and some said 510,o000,0000-of d;:vor ecin
drculating In harmony with g'll, and side
by side with It. Yet the French silver coins
were of a fineness compared with gold of
only 15~( to 1. while the Anlerican silver
dollar was of a fineness of 16 to 1.
VIGOROUS, PAITHRF'L OFFICERS NEEDED.
"Give us," said Mr. COke, "the same ex
ecutive vigor and fidelity exercisedl by the
offieers of the Freich overnmient in behalf
of silver, and we will show that we can carry
very much more silver than we now have.
At the rate of 2,000,000 a monthi it wolli
take us fifteen years to get $575St00.000,
which is less than the smallest amourlt
claimed by anybody to be the silver circula
ton of France.
The coinage of silver, Mr. Coke said.
should be free as was the coinage of gold,
Amerean silver should be placed on an ex
act equality with gold everywhere. But
whether righbt or wron as to free coinsge
the peleshould inslIst that the govt rn
ment ocials sbould execute the laws.
Mr. Coke reviewed the history of Amerl
ea bond legislation to bow that the bhnda
were perablein "eoln." and that a joint
resolution in roduced in the senate in 1878
by Senator 8tsley Matthews, and liassed
by a two-thirds vote of both houses of con
cmrrd·Clflt~ lilto be cr onaistste
that they be laid exclusively in silver. All
that was asked was for the government oflt
eers to treat silver as shey treated gld. No
