Head Consul Northcott and llead Clerk

Madison. Wis., Jane 4. From the
advent of the Rock Island delegation
it has been ' apparent that the head
oflices of the M. W. A. would be
moved there, although there was a
possibility yesterday and last night
that Peoria would make a deter
mined effort. The Kock Island dele
gation has prosecuted an active can
vass with the result that a majority
of the delegates to the head camp
are wearing IJock Island badges.
The only question now reached is
that of legality by the opponents of
Rock Island, but it is not expected
that the opposition will be formid
able, and it is conceded that Kock
Island will be chosen if a change is
The Illinois state caucus selected
Marvin Quackeribush, of Dundee, in
place of C. T. Heydecker, as director.
With this exception it is thought
the old directors will be selected. -The
R. E. Rpach, of Vandalia, is the
caucus choice for head physician,
with Dr. Kerns, of Moline, the
closest competitor. The indications

Head Camp Convene,
Madison. June 4. The head camp
convened at the state house at 10
o'clock this morning with a full at
tendance of delegates. After the ad
dress of welcome by the mayor, who
referred fulicituously to Rock Island's
light for the head otlices and re
sponse by Head Council North
eott, reports of the hhd officers
wero received and adjournment taken
to 2 p. ni., when the committee on
Trainmen Injured and Enormous Lou In
a Collision Last Mebt.
A disastrous railroad accuient oc
curred between Muscatine and Fruit
land, on the southwest division of the
Rock Island, about 12:30 o'clock this
morning, when passenger train No.
11, whiclklcft here at 11:05, speeding
along at a high rate over the straight
level track across Muscatine island.
collided with some freight cars
which stood on the main track. The
crash was terrific, demolishing the
engine completely and smashing the
baggage and mail cur immediately
behind it. Conductor Crawford was
among the most seriously injured,
his shoulder being badly bruised and
dislocated. The engineer, George
Hinckley, had one of his limbs
crushed which will necessitate am
putation and may not recover. The
passengers were all shaken up, but
as far as can bo learned, noue
were seriously injured.
Crashed Into Stuck Car.
The scene of the accident is about
four miles south of Muscatine and
about two miles from Fruitland,
where the sidings are. As the night
was exceedingly stormy and a
cimcriun darkness prevailed, the en
gineer was unable to discern the ob.
-rtrnction in time to avert the disas
ter. How the freight cars got on to
the main track is a matter of con
jecture, but it is scarcely to be im
agined that any one was fiendish
enough to cause such a calamity. It
is more probable that the wind,
which attained a high velocity before
and during the t-lorm, moved the
cars from the siding on to the track,
there being no bar to hold them on
the siding. The engine is badlv
wrecked, as are several cars, and the
- loss is estimated at 130,000. ' Pas.
sengcrs had to plod through the
sand, rain and darkness to Fruitland
where the operator had to be found
before any message could be sent,
Dr. H. M. Dean, the rallwav surgeon.
was summoned as soon as the news
came and hastened to the sceue to
give surirical attention to the in
jured. A wrecking train started out
from Muscatine about 3:30 and
another from this city followed.
