The List of the Dead and
Complete Particulars of the
Evidence of Villainous
MAKsiiFiF.Mt.Mav 30. The through
express on the Wisconsin Central
from St. Paul for Chicago and Mil
waukee, ran through an open switch
at Manville at 8:15 this morning, and
completely wrecked the engine and
all the cars, with the exception of the
rear slecier and the business car.
The wrecked cars afterwards took
lire and were consumed. Four per
sons have been taken from the wreck
lead, and four others are missing,
tho supposition being that they were
caught in the mass of broken timbers
and cremated. Fifteen to twenty
others were injured, some fatally.
The accident, apparently, must be
attributed to design. An examina
tion disclosed the fact that a nut had
lieen removed from the switch, caus
ing it to become loose and throw the
train from the truck.
The Rlllml ami Wounded.
Except four or five passengers ami
three or four trainmen who are miss
ing and believed to be burned to
death in the wreck, the following is
as complete a list of the dead and
wounded as can be obtained:

the strike, has arrived at the executive
office. While at Chicago be replied to the
telegram as follows: "I will gladly do
anything I can to assist in settling the

you suggest would have no power to com

not compel submission on the part of
those unscrupulous operators who precipi
tated the strike by reducing wages to the
starvation point and who are profiting by
the present troubles, I fear little could be
accomplished because honest operators
who are ready to make any fair arrange

refuse to resjiect the decision of any board.
Consequently even those operators who
are most anxious to settle tbe strike would

Mixonk, Ills., May The coal strike
at this place so far as any active demon
trntion is concerned is thought to b? prac

and sheriff Tool has discharged nearly nil
of his deputies. Your correspondent was
ut Wenona and fouiri everything there
quiet, thouch it was reported that men
were gathering at their usual meeting
place. A later report says this was
erroneous. far ns this part of the
country is concerned it is thought that
the active work iiiytlie strike is over,
though no surprise would be felt should
there In another out break.
A new wrinkle was.-prung in the mining
situation here. At a meeting of the dep
uty sheriffs it was voted to give a part of
their pay to the needy miners nnd their
families, a manlier of Uu'in being iu desti
tute circumstances. It was also voted to
stand guard should occasion require, if the
men would go to work, and lurnish them
ample protection. A committee was -pointed
to learu tiie decision of the miners.

to aid them in getting possession of sev

side-tracked and are diligeutly guarding.
The miuers wives, some of whom are
large, muscular wunieii, aid their hus
bands. A crowd of Strikers stopped the
passenger train on the C. and E. I. north
of here and demanded that the conductor
let them ride free. Their wisli was refused
and they held the train for over an hour,
when they were induced to let it move,
being assured that they were molesting
the United S.aies mails.
The C. and E. L has moved a train of
cars from Lyf old which had been uuder
guard of miners for several days past.
Armed with fifty personal writs mid a re

Hawkins visited Lyford on a siecial train.
There was a large crowd of men awaiting
his arrival. Marshal Hawkins read the
papers and served writs 'upou those whom
he knew. He then met a committee of
the men nnd they agreed without a dis
senting voice to leave the coal move. An
hour or two later the coal which had beeu
side-tracked for many days was started
north for Chicago.
