The publication yesterday morn trig of tbe
announcement that Senator Sabln and Davis
thought of calling on ths president-elect to
protest against the appointment of indom

great interest. It excited so much interest
that some friends of Windom called on Davia
and strongly advised him not to take the pro
posed step. Tbey brought such pressure to
bear that Davig, they claim, assured them
that h would not go to see Gen. Harrison on
this business unless be should b sent
for. As Davis refused to go. Sa
bln gave up tbe idea of calling
on th presidcnt-eh'Ct. He was informed
early in the day that Wlndom had stated to
Several personal friends that he had been of

of secretary of tbe treasury. He spent par :
of the day, however, bringing his influence
to bear upon senators wbo bad interests in
Governor Rusk and other cabinet candidates
in the northwest. He assured them of the
futility of the aspirations of their triends i?
the northwest should find a representative ir.

THE NAVY TAKES A HAND
Zn th Contest for Xaval Secretary Oppo
sition to RcprMcntativ Thomas.
Washixoion City, Feb. 28. The can
didacy of Representative Thomas, of Illinois,
for the position of secretary of the navy un
der Gen. Harrison bas been the means of
bringing again into prominence th old diffi
culties between tbe line and the staff of the
navy. This fight bas been going on for -a
number of years, and tbe causes for it have'
been many. Tbe principal cause of the diffi
culty is the difference in pay allowed line and
staff officers of the same rank. Represent
ative Thomas, as a member of the naval com
mittee of the house, has expressed himself
as a friend of the line In their
differences with the staff. A meeting of line
officers was recently held at tbe navy depart
ment, and resolutions were adopted calling
on Gen. Harrison to appoint Thonins secre
tary of the navy. Staff officers are very much
offended at this, and are considering the ad
visability of protesting against the appoint
ment They claim that Thomas has a decided
animus against the staff, and that be will
work against their interest as secretory of
ALIEN MONEY IN THE WEST.
It Goes Principally Into th Pocket ef
Citizens, Bo "Let Ber Co."
Washington City, Feb. 28. Stewart pre
sented to the senate yesterday the report of
tbe committee on mines and mining on the
ownership of mining land by aliens in the
territories a subject the committee was in
structed to Investigate. Tbe committee re
ports that there is invested in mining lands in
th territories by aliens about t:&,nOCi,750,
which has paid in dividends abo t f4,787,S00.
The profits may have been greater than this,
but certainly tbe original capital bas not
been returned to the investors. Tbe invest
ment of foreign capital in the mine
of the territories before the passage of act
prohibiting such investment consisted in the
purchase of patented claims. The purchasers
usually paid a full consideration and fre
quently exorbitant prices for this property.
The money they brought in helped to develop
tbe country. The people of the territories,
tbe committee says, do not object to tbe in
vestment of alien capital, but rather invite
It, and the committee thinks it would be as
well if the law in relation to tie matter were
re peak d.

BT. Gkorok, Ont, Feb. 88. The most ten.
rible accident in the history of western On
tario since the Das Jardines canal accident
some years ago, in which nearly 100 lost tboir
lives, occurred here last evening shortly after
, o o'clock to a train on the Great Western rail
way. Just to the west of the village is an iron
trestle bridge of three spans over a branch of
the Grand river, which flows west and south
of this place. At the hour named tbe train
known as the 6U Louis express, bound cast to
Hamilton, passed here. Just east of the sta
tion a piston-rod of the locomotive broke, and
by bounding against the track forced the rails
to spread just as the first part of tbe
train was entering on tbe bridge.
Tbe locomotive, teudor, and smoking-car
passed over in safety, but tbe first passenger
car, a Pullman car and a dining-room car
went crashing through the middle section of
the bridge into the river below. So great
was the velocity at which the train was run-
niug as tie bridge sank down that the Pull
man crashed into tbe first pier, rebounded
and was thrown clear off the bridge, and,
turning completely over, landed right side
up. This car contained most of the unfor
tunate passengers, who, without an instant's
warning, were hurled to death. The dining
car was left standing on end at tbe foot of
the eastern pier, and the fiiat-closs passenger
coach lay a 6bapeles beap of splintered iron
and timber alongside.
News of tbe terrible calamity spread
through the village, and soon tbe terror
stricken villagers with ell the medical and
surgical assistance the town affords were
flocking toward tbe scene of the disaster.
The train, which is generally one of the
heaviest loaded on the line, was made up
latt night of five coaches, consisting of bag
gage car, smoker, first-class passenger coach,
aming room and Pullman sleeping cars. In
the dining car at the time the accident oc
curred there were only about seven pas
sang, rs besides the waiters. The first of tbe
villagers who reached the scene of the big
smasu-up describes it as one oi sickening hor
ror. From out of the twisted and broken
cars and from out of tbe chasm below tbe
bridge could be heard piercing shrieks ol
anguish and cries for aid, while the moans of
the dying and tbe prayers of those pinned in
by life-crushing timbers were of the most
Tbe dining car being mostly constructed of
iron was almost impenetrable by tb axes
and saws. It stood on aud and th poor oc
cupants were pitched to the bottom amongst
a mass of broken tables and dishes and on tbe
top of all was tbe cooking furnace in full
running order, making the danger of fir Im
minent. Luckily the first thought of the res
cuers wns to prevent fire. Beneath ail the
mass of debris one man was calling for help,
and when taken out was scarcely injured.
The shrieks of a lady near him were heart
rending, but she d;ed" before they could res
cue her. Two men were sittiug together
talking; one wns killed instantly, the other
was rescued badly, but not hopelessly in
jured. Tbe work of rescue was at one begun.
Huge bonfires were lighted at either side of
the wrecked train to illuminate the scene, fast
growing black with the coming night, while
strong men with axe, saws, or crowbars in
hand worki-d as they bad never worked be
fore to rescue the suffering iassengcr. Ex
press wagons were hastily turned into impro-v-.aed
ambulances to convey the dead and
wounded to the station bouse, which, for the
time being, was used as a temporary morgue,
and to the throe hot!, which bad been
thrown open to receive tbe unfortunate.

Was It a Bad Omen T
Lojrnojr, Feb. sa An incident occurred at

excited a good deal of comment As Mr. W.

bead-dress, including tbe diminutive crown
she wore, fell to tbe floor. The happening
produced a curious effect upon those who wit
nessed it, e nd for a full minute no one seemed
to know what to do. Tbe ornament was
finally replaced, but tbe superstitious ones
seemed to regard tbe matter as a bad omen.

Very Weak 1
Is That Which The London
Times Produces Now.
IT TAKES SOME BAD MEDICINE,
And Hakes an Apology for Being So Very
Fresh Proceedings Before th Parnell
Commission Those Forged Letters With
drawn and Another Screed from Pigott
Pronpmtt for His Capture Parnell Take
. th Witness Stand American Sympathy
London, Feb. 83. In an editorial this
morning Tbe Times makes an apology to
Parnell and th other Irish leaders whose
reputations war impugned by its publica
tion of the letters obtained from Pigott In
substance it says:
"Mr. Parnell having In the w itness box
stated that the letter were forgeries, we ao
cept in every respect the truth of his state
ment, and deem It right to express our regret
most fully and sincerely at being induced to
publish them. This expression of regret in
cludes the letters falsely attributed to
Messsrs. Egan, Davitt and O'Kelly. We
firmly believed that the letters were genuine,
and it must be evident to all reasonable per
sons that If conspiracy existed The Times was
victimized by and not a party to it This
withdrawal, of course, refers to the letters
obtained from Pigott exclusively."
The Times adds: "Errors in judgment may
have been committed, and for tbam the pen
alty must be paid " It also says that it never
communtcnted with Pigott in the first in
stance. It believed 'the letters genuine until
This had been foreshadowed during yester
day's session of the Parnell commission. As
soon as the Judges were seated Webster, the
Times' counsel, announced the receipt by
Shannon of another lot ter from Pigott con
taining a copy of his -confession to Labou-
ehere, and this time declaring that confession
to be true, and that tbe whole batch of letters
was forged. He explained his method of
forgery to have been by holding a genuine
rarneu lorter on a window-light and tracing
the characters on a blank sheet of naner.
thereby becoming acquainted with Parnell's
nanawriting. Webster then said that it was
clear that Pigott's testimony was worthless and
asked leave to withdraw all consideration of
the letters pnt in evidence. Tbe Times, he
said, w.Jied to express it regret at the pub
lication of the letters, aud would give further
expression to tuo same at a later time. He
repudiated the suggestion that The Time
was a party to a;iy conspiracy.
jtusJi said ue had hoped for stronger
statements irom v eoster, and then Parnell
took tbe stand and made a general repudia
tion of all tbe letters which bad been as
cribed to him. Webster then asked for an
adjournment and th court adjourned to Fri
rigott's letter to Shannon was dated at
Tbe escape of Pigott excited scarcely more
Interest than has been aroused by theque-
uon now to gt mm Deck to England. Ex
traordinary difficulty will be experienced In
securing bis extradition, even if he Is found
in a country with which the British govern
ment has a treaty covering most offenses
against the law, and many legal minds have
been concentrated upon the technicalities
possible to be brought into requisition in tbe
endeavor to bring the forger Into the
clutches of the English courts. Legal forgery
is embraced only by the signing of a cbeck,
note, or other negotiable instrument with a
view of obtaining money thereon, and does
not comprehend the forging of letters. Tbe
suggestion Is made, however, that the letters
having been fabricated and signed with the
object of selling them as genuine documents,
tbey become legal forgeries, and subject tbe
forgers to all the penalties attaching to other
phases of that crime as well as to all of the
provisions of an extradition treaty embracing
that offense. An attempt to extradite Pigott
upon this technicality will not be resorted to,
however, unless the endeavor to socur him
upon the charge of having forged note npon
the Hibernian bank of Dublin shall fail
The Time has withdrawn from sale its
pamphlet on "ParnellUm and Crime" and
other publications referring to the subject in
tbe same vein.
It is believed that Pigott posted hi letter to
Shannon, the D lblln solicitor for Th Times,
at tbe railroad station in Paris and proceeded
directly to Spnin or Switzerland.
On Monday igott sold some rare books,
some of tfce:n of an erotic character, at a
book mart. He received in payment for
these a check for which be had cashed at
the bank on which it was drawn. He was
last seen In FUet street at 4 o'clock Monday
A telegram from Paris says that a most
exhaustive search for the forger, Pigott, in
that c:ty has failed to reveal his presence.
Parnell was surrounded by friends in the
bouse of commons yesterday, all of whom
congratulated him upon the collnpse of Tbe
