carried about 100 passengers. As it

coaches jumped the tracks and it

Hroken Itnil Wan C'auae.
The train wrecked was enroute
from Montreal to Sault Ste. Marie
and Minneapolis. An official state
ment says the accident was probably
due to a broken rail. The engine,
baggage, express and mail cars and
one second class coach remained on
the rails, while one second class, one
first class, a dining car and a sleeper
went down the embankment.

The wreck occurred 37 miles west
of Sudbnry, where the tracks cut into
the side of a steep hill which is skirt

of the train passed over the break in

Every Psaungtr Drowned.
Caught like rats in a trap, every pas

ciently to allow the passengers to keep
above the water by hanging onto the
hatracks and other projections.

crushed like an egg shell. Some oT

Some of the senators, it was sug

In fact, it was said such states as
Massachusetts ar.d Pennsylvania,
great strongholds of savings institu

scheme. The president argued, how
ever, that the republican platform
called for portal savings banks, and
