AFTER MIDNIGHT.

Caue of Disaster.
Western Newspaper Union News Service.
New Orleans.-Fourteen lives were
sniffed out and 90 passengers injured
when a through freight crashed into
the rear of a north-bound excursion
train on the Yazoo and Mississippi
Valley railroad near Monti, La.
The appalling disaster is charged
by the railroad officials to negligence
of a flagman when the two trains
crashed together.
Of the dead, four are white women.
one a white infant, four negro women
and five negro men.
Forty-one of the injured are white
and 49 negroes. It is expected that
all of these, except possibly three,
will recover.
The remarkable feature of the wreck
was that the loss of life was confin
ed almost entirely to the last and
bourth from the last coaches of the
excursion train. The second ' from
the rear coach escapd injry almost
eompletely. The excursied train was
made up of tea coaches, with negroes
occupying all but the two rear coaches.
The rear coac was dplshed sad
the third lad. 'Idrth coaches were
teleseoped. All three, together with
hdw flst eUglse, were burned.
Pathetic stories of the ghastly 'i~r
ror were brought to New Orleans by
survvers, mary of whom barely es
apd death. The confusioe and ox
eltement incident to the distressing
scenes of death sad suffering was in
creased by the cries and exclamations
of the hundreds of negroes, who ran
about in a panic-stricken condition.
A few of the negroes were self-poe
sensed and lent their earnest aid to
the heroic efforts of white passen
gers toeave from the flames those
pinioned beneath the wreckage, but
most of them ran wildly about, shirek
tlg, shouting and praying.
Mrs. Thomas McGlnniss, wife of a
New Orleans plummer, was killed and
her husband and two small babies are i
In a local hospital.
Of the injuwerd, 46 were brought to c

TAFT THIRD IN
ARKANSAS VOTE
Unofficial Returns Give Roose
velt Second Place in
This State
WILSON LEAD OVER 40,000
pemocratic Canjidate Carried Every
County, Including Republican
Strnegholds.
Western Newspap'r Ul. News Srts les
Little Rock.-Unofficial returns from
the national election show that Wil
son's plurality in Arkansas will be
considerably greater than that of
Bryan over Taft four years ago, al
though the total vote polled by the
Democratic ticket will probably fall
considerably below that of four years
ago. Democratic leaders ascribe the
falling of in their vote to the apathy
due to the lack of any close contests
in the state.
Wilson's plurality will be greater
than Bryan's owing to the splitting
of the Republican vote between Roose
velt and Taft. The Republican and
Progressive candidates ran very close
in the state and it will not be known
which has the largest vote until the
official returns are all in and the
vote tabulated. This probably will
be some time as some of the counties
are always slow in sending in the
reurns to the secretary of state's of
flice. It is believed, however, that
Roosevelt's vote will exceed that re
ceived by Taft. One estimate places
Wilson's vote In the state at about
75,000, Roosevelt's at 28,000 and Taft'%
at 26,000. The 8ocialitsta made
some gains and it is estimated that
Debs polled about 7,000 votes, while
Chafin, prohibition candidate, prob.
ably polled about 3,000.
These figures would give Wilson a
plurality of 47,000 over Roosevelt and
a majority of approximately 11,000
over all the other presidential candi
dates.
The returns indlcate that Wilson
arried every one of the 75 eucntles
i_ the, Il.teudig Searcy and
publican stronghlds. The division of
the vote in these counties between
Taft and Roosevelt aided in throwlng
them to Wilson.
Roosevelt led Taft to all the larger
countles, including Pulaski, Garland,
Philips, Sebastian and Washington,
but the extent of the Progressive vote
in the smaller counties, particulelarly
in the country districts, will not be
known until the official returns are

fight will go on. In the end the etae
must triumph," Col. Theodore RooPs
volt declared in response to a ques
tion as to what effect the eleetion of
Woodrow Wilson would have upon
the future of the Progressive party.
After the smoke of battle had clear
ed away and the election of Wilson by
an overwhelming majority became a
certainty, Col. Roosevelt showed as
signs of being downcast by his de
feat. He laughed 'and joked and ao
peared in the best of spirits.
Close friends of Colonel Roosevelt
said he was not surprised at Governor
Wilson's election, beeause he was at
no time confident, they assert, that
the new party would be able to win
its first fight. The showing which
the party made, his friends said. had
pleased rather than disappointed its
leader.
It is Colonel Roosevelt's desire to
have a vacation from polities, although
he expects to keep conastantly tI touch
with the general aspect of the situs
aton. It is'hoped to carry forward
some kind of Progressive propaganda
throughout the next two years with
an eye to the congressional and state
elctions in 1914.
Colonel Roosevelt expects to drop
back for the winter into the quiet life
at bhome, whick he led before the cam
paign, with ti pa to New York once
or twice a we4H. He probably will be
called upon once a month or oftener
to make speeches, although he desires
to avoid any long trips for manuy
months to come.
