A TRAIN WRECKED.
a. Train Wrecked on the St. Louis & San
Francisco Road and All the PsHcnsera
Injured Reward For the Wreckers.
fc'T. Louis, May 25 The west bound
train on the St. Louis & San Francisco
railroad, which left St. Louis Thursday
night at 8:15 o'clock, was wrecked three
miles west of Sullivan, Mo., sixty-eight
miles w est of St. Louis. Not a passenger
escaped unhurt and forty-five were seri
ously injured, though no deaths are yet
The train was running at a h'gh rate of
speed when suddenly and without warn
ing the track gave way and the locomotive,
baggage car and five coaches went over
The trainmen and those only slightly
injured at once set to work to prevent the
additional horror of fire, iu which they
succeeded and turned their attention to
the more unfortunate injured, and in a
very short time forty-five passengers, all
badly hurt, had been released from the
debris. A temporary hospital was im
provised at Sullivan and the most seriously
injured were taken there, while others
were brought to St. Louis on the relief
train, which was hurried to the scene of
'ho disaster. The women are under the
care of Dr. Mclntyre, chief surgeon of the
It was 11:25 p. m when the accident oc
curred. The train was traveling at a high
rate of speed and most of the passengers
bad already gone to sleep, while the few
remaining awake were about to do so.
There is a curve in the road about three
miles west of Sullivan and when this
curve was reached a sudden jolt and jar
was felt all over the train. Everybody
felt it and the people in the rear cars could
hear the forward coaches rattling and
rumbling over the ties aud the crushing
noises of cars being demolished. A creek
is crossed by the road at that point and
there is a steep embankment thirty feet
high. Most of the passengers thought the
train was going through a bridge and a
feeling of horror chilled their blood.
In an instant all the coaches except the
two sleeping cirs had been thrown from
the rails. People were thrown about in
the cars in ail directions and some of them
w-ere throw n from the coaches and down
the embankment. Walter Davidson, who
travels for the Westinghouse Air Brake
Company, was G rown right out of a win
dow o i the opposite side of the coach from
which he was silting and sent rolling
down the embankment to the edge of the
creek. II is feet w re in the water.
The explanation given by the trainmen
and passengers was that the spikes and
fish-plate had been removed from the
rail at the curve thus leaving tho rail
loose on the ties. The forward portion of
the locomotive passed the place all right,
but the tender jumped the track and was
thrown pnrt of the w ay down an embank
ment. It would probably have gone the en
tire distance had not the forward end held
it up. Who removed the spikes and plates
is not known, but the supposition is the
work was done by train robbers who want
ed to hold up the train. Still no robbers
put in an appearance, and if the accident
was caused by them they must have either
weakened in their purpose or have thrown
the wrong train nnd were not prepared to
do their woik at that timo. Too road offi
cials cla m it as a clear case of train
In the same train were several physi
cians returning from Springfield, where
the State medical convention woe being
held, and they al.-o rendered valuable as
sistance in caring for the injured. Amng
the latter was Dr. Russell, who received
very serious hurt, having hot h ears taken
off and b'ing otherwise injured so badly
that he could not be brought home and is
now at Sullivan.

Connecticut Bank Officers Embezzle a
New Haves, Conn., May 25 John C.
Bradley, cashier of the Merchants' Na
tional Bank, ia said to hav3 been under
the surveillance of officers of the law at
bis residence in Fairhaveu. He is charged
with embezzlement, the shortage being
discovered by Bank Examiner Cooley in
his examination Friday. The bank offi
cers declined to give any information.
Prosecuting Attorney Dailey is now in
consultation with the officers of the bank,
and it Is rumored that Bradley will be ar
rested. The loss to the bank may reach
$100,003. It is said that Bradley and
Charles W. Palmer discounted notes with
out the knowledge of the directors, and it
has covered a space of several years.
Palmer has been arrested also.
The card was issued yesterday after
noon by ex-Governor Bigelow, president
of the Merchants' National Bank:
To the PuhHc:
Certain irregularities have been found In the
bank involving the cashier and assistant teller.
There will probably bo a considerable loss to
the bank, which will not, however, impair its
capital. It is not yet ascertained whether
those officials have been the beneficiaries of
these irregularities, but notes have been dis
counted which were not presented to the board
of directors for their approval, and the los on
this kind of paper can not at this moment be
Mr. Bigelow subsequently said: "I do
not think that the entVe surplus (100,000)
will be lost, and hope that it will not ex
ceed half that amounV "
Teller Palmer has. lcade a full confes
sion of all the transactions. Palmer is
interested in the manufacture cf patent
medicine, and one story current is to the
effect lhat he borrowed considerable
money to extend hi business, and, being
unable to meet his payments, tided over
by discount notes for the parties of whom
he had borrowed money. This practice,
it is stated, was discovered by Cashier
Bradley, but Palmer induced him
to keep it quiet, promising to
take up the notes as fast as they became
due. Failing to do this other noies were
discounted until the cashier aud teller be
came deeply involved and were c m.pelled
to keep quiet for their own safety. The
general opinion last night was that the
affair was much worse than the bank offi
cials care to admit. Cashier Bradley spent
last night in the sheriff's office and Palmer
was at his own home, in charge of a deputy.
Bradley is about fifty years of age and
is very popular. He was pron-.iuent in
church circles and was also prominent in
military circles. Palmer is about forty
year old and has been with the bank
nearly twenty years.
A GUTHRIE RIOT.
The Settlement of Town Lot Contest
Lead to u Riot The Troops Called On.
Guthrie. I. T., May 25. The soldiers
were Thursday called out for the first
time since the opening of Oklahoma, and
for several hours Guthrie was practically
under martial law. The meetings, he.d
every night for a week by the men who
lost, their lots through contests and by the
opening of streets, culminated in a riot.
Oae of the best lots in Guthrie was
awarded by the board of arbitration to a
man named Driscoll, of Chicago. An old
man named Diemar, of Kansas,
occupied the front of the same
lot with a tent Di iscoll erected a
building on rollers, ready to shove it to
the front as soon as Dienier should va
cate. Recently the Couucil passed an
ordiuance empowering the marshal to
eject every person whose claim for a lot
had been rejected by the arbitration
bonrd. This proceeding would affect
over 1,000 persons. The city govern ni nt
made a test case of the Driscoll -D.euier
contest. The marshal attempted to re
move Diemer and his tent. Immediately
a mob of 1 2 0 men collected and drove
the marshal away. Tne mob wa about
to attack the ciiy hall, when Cnpt:in
Cavanaugh arrived and dispersed them,
after which the city au' horities resumed
the work of ejecting Dermr. Diemer
fought like a tiger and had to be dragged
from his tent to the slroet. Dris-CJll's
building wr.s rolled forward. The mob
attcn:p ed to tear the house to pieces, but
this time the authorities were able to re
pulse Iho angry men without the aid of
the soldiers. At night soldi-rs guarded
the principal streets and more trouble Is
anticipated when the work of ejectment is

New York. May 25. From the World:
"The excitement in this city over the mur

est pitch and may possibly develop
into something serious. It may be
remembered that in this fight . in
the Clan-na-Gael Society Iat fall Dr.
Cronin was supported by several well
kuown men of this city. Dr. Cronin was
openly threatened with death and he has
now met his fate. It. was well und-.-rstood
at the time that some men had
evil designs against Cronin's backers in
the East, one of the strongest of whom
lives in this city, and for w hose safety hi
friends are daily warring. His Clan-na-Gael

The prisoner was looking pale and ill at

great mental strain undergone during his
trial. A V lien asked if he had any thine to
say why sentence should not be passed
he arose and, looking directly at the
judge, said, in a clear voice:
"I am innocent of the crime of which

not had a fair and impartial trial. I be.
lieve the jury that convicted me was prej

neck until you are dead, and may the
Lord have mercy on your soul." The pris
oner left the court-room immediately, iu
charge of an officer, and declined to talk
to any one. His attorney gave notice of
an appeal, and an order suspending the

be released from his awful position.
FORMING A CHARACTER.
Trae anil False Method of Intellect tin
anil Moral Training.
The process of forming the statue
that shall waken the admiration of the
beholder ages after the hand of the
artist has moldered to dtifet, is slow.
Suppose the object be to reproduce in
marble the features of a distinguished
statesman. A model in clay or gypsum
is first formed. Then, by a alow and
toilsome process, requiring the accu
rate measurement of lines and angles,
the features of the model aro trans
ferred to enduring marble. Such In
the course pursued by the true artist
A novice may pursue a different
course, lie may commence at once on
the block of marble. By the direct
application of the chisel he may, in a
short time, fashion the rude outline
of features bearing some resemblance
to these designed to be commem
orated. But he can go but little
further. He can never reach the per
fection which the artist attains by
obedience to the rules of his art.
Processes analagous to these may be
pursued in the cultivation of the mind.
There is a process of patient culture,
a toilsome formation of habits which
do not admit of direct application to
practical life, which, though slow, are
necessary to the development of the
higher forms of intellectual life and
of intellectual power.
There is a process which . rejects a
large portion of this disciplinary toil,
and aims at immediata results. The
pupil at first fceems to make rapid pro
gress; Dut Die progress is boon arrest
ed. It is ftkowy and limited. It can
never be carried far.
The educator tdiould tako as much
pains in forming a mind as the artint
takes in forming a fetal ue. If time and
toil are necessary to the perfection of
a statue which is to endure for ages,
then time and toil may be neye.hsary to
the perfect ion of the soul which ia to
endure forever. N. Y. Ledger.
