Cameron died at 8 o'clock lost evening:
Although his demise had been expected for
several days the an
nouncement that he
bad succumbed to
the attack of par
alysis, which pros
trated him last
week, created great
sorrow in this com
munity His condi
tion during the day
was rather encour
aging, and death
came suddenly dur
ing a weak spell.
8IM0 CAMEBOa. Up to the last at
tack he was conacicus and bad no trouble in
swallowing the food pi van hira and which he
appeared to assimilate.
The date of the funeral has not yet been
decided upon. Just previous to the sinking
spell which terminated fatally the general
appeared to recognizo several friends. His
general condition, while very weak, was such
that the doctors bad hopes that his life might
be prolonged until the return of Senator Don
Cameron, who had cabled that he would sail
from Liverpool ymterday. Soon after his
arrival bis father will be hurried in tbe Har-
Simon Cameron's 1.1 In.
Of tbe early life and struggles of the "gen
eral,'' as he delighted to lie railed, but little
is known, and that little indicates merely the
humdrum life of an ordinary countr lad at
that day. Tbe date of his birth was March
8, 1796. His parents were of the hardy,
thrifty Heotch-Irish stock who leveled tlie
primeval forests, fought the Indians, and.
allied with the German element af Berks and
Northampton counties, ultimately drove tbe
Quakers from their early control of the
province of Pennsylvania. There is but lit
tle doubt that the memory of Cameron's
early struggles with poverty mode a deep
impression on his mind in after life, and in
this connection he has said more than once:
"My son Donald has had a great many ad
vantages, but I had one that was worth all
of them poverty." He was of the blood of
the old Scotch Camerons. His grandfather.
another Simon, came nearly 150 years ago
from Scotland and settled in that same Don
egal township where the later Simon has
Apprentloed to a Printer.
Ia 1814 yonng Simon apprenticed himself
to Andrew Kennedy, publisher of tbe North
umberland County Gazette, just across tbe
river from Sun bury. He was a regular
"printer's devil" at first, wielding, once a
week, tbe clumsy balls which were then
used instead of rollers in inking Ute forma
subsequently being promoted to "pull" the
old Ramaga press. Before completing his
apprenticeship, however, be went to Harris
bmrg and finished his trail e in tbe office of
James Peacock's Republican. He boarded
in his employer's family, and there met Sec
retary of State Ingham, afterward Andrew
Jackson's secretary of tbe treasury.
Hla Entrance into Politics.
Ingham was not in political luck just then.
His own county had gone against hira tbe
previous fall and he was anxious to bring it
back into lino. Cameron struck bim as be
ing an intelligent, enterprising young fellow,
and be aoked hira to go to Doylestown to run
The Democrat during the next campaign.
Ha went, played his cards well, got tbe Dem
ocratic factious together, absorbed tbe rival
Democratic paper, carried the county in the
election and saved Ingham's political bacon
for all time to come.
He does to tho Capital.
The Doylufttown Democrat, however, gave
at that time little evidence of the prosperity
that has kept it alive and thriving ever since,
and young Cameron dropped it after the
campaign was over, and went back to the
case. He scraped together $100, spent most
of it in getting to Washington and ;there got
a job on Tbe Congressional Globe. It was
hard work and poor pay, and after one s
son be quit and returned to the Harrisburg
office, where be had finished bis trade. One
thing he had gained in Washington was the
acquaintance of John C. Calhoun.
Points In Hla Political Career.
At Harrisburg Cameron bought a paper
and called it Tbe Intelligencer, and with it
did good work for John C Calhoun for tbe
presidency. He then was made state
printer, and later helped elect a Van Buren
delegation from Pennsylvania. In 1845,
npon Buchanan going into Polk's cabinet,
Cameron made the race for United States
senator and was elected as a protectionist,
which be had been for years, over tbe demo
cratic free trader. He missed a re-election.
A Better Prophet Than Linoola.
In 1)360 he was Pennsylvania's choice for
presidential candidate in the Republican
convention, rv hen tbe convention met Sen'
ator Cameron, finding his own chances gone.
threw bis influence to Lincoln. After the
election Lincoln summoned Cameron to
Springfield. He had already offered bim
the treasury department. ' Now be said
"Mr. Chase is a very ambitious man, and is
being nrgml lor tbe cabinet.
"Well, tbe war department is tbe place for
a man anxious to make a great reputation,'
"Because we are going to have a great
Lincoln did not believe any such thing.
but offered Cameron his choice of the war
or treasury departmental The Pennsylvanian
refused to make a choice, and was made sec
retary of war.
His Relations with Beportera.
Gen. Cameron was always a favorite with
newspaper correspondents, but he had a dis
like to being interviawed unawares. One day
he was talking to several correspondents who
bad called to pay their respects. As they
were leaving he requested that no "inter
views" should follow the visit, and gave the
following story as his reason. "Day before
yesterday a New York Sun reporter called
on me and, representing that be was short of
funds and being away from home, asked me
to loan him 1 10 to get back to New York,
As I . am an old newspaper man my-
self and glad to help any of
the) craft who are In- need.""
was only too glad to give him, and not lend
aias, what be asked. I had a abort talk with
him, entirely informal, and, I must say, a
trifle off-guard: but judge of my surprise.
two days later, to read in the Sun a column
interview with me, which contained, among
some things I certainly said, very many
things I did not say. It was a gross be
trayal of confidence and of the privacy
which obtains among gentlemen, and it put
me to the trouble of going down to the tele
graph office and disavowing and disclaiming
any resposibility for the interview as pub
lished. " -
: ImUir life of the General,
. His vigorous ideas soon got him into
trouble there. His retirement from the cab
inet was accompanied by his appointment, at
his own request, aa minister to Russia,
When Lincoln's renomination was being op
posed by Chase and others Cameron was
summoned home to help look after tbe
fences. - In 18117 Cameron returned to the
senate, and was for many years conspicuous
In its proceedings. He resigned his place in
the senate in 1870, and secured the election of

vacancy. Since then he has lived in com

thirty-one wrecked freight cars, are the
known results of a terrible collision on the

miles east of this city yesterday morning
just before daylight Besides this, afjl the
most horrible part of it, if confirmed, to the
assertion that fifteen to twenty dead bodies
are yet to be recovered from the debria
A Flagman to Blame.
The wreck took place on a bridge about
forty feet high, spanning Loyal Hanna
creek. The "derry-shifter" (a locomotive)
had left eighteen cars standing on the bridge
while tbe crew was drilling out loaded cars
at the Latrobe Coal works. Tbe flagman,
David Heacox, of tbe shifter, bad gone to
tbe telegraph tower, but as a heavy rain was
falling at tbe time it is not known whether
the engineer on the fast freight going west
r his signal or not In any event, tbe
flagman was not back half far enough, and
had bis signal been observed tbe engineer
could not possibly have stopped his heavy
train of forty -two cars on the down grade in
time to avert the accident
How the Crash Occurred.
The train, going at a speed of twenty-five
miles an hour, crashed into tbe cars on the
bridge, tearing up tbe rails and ties, and
plunged over (he side of the stone bridge, a
Kbeer distance of forty feot, into the bed or
Loyal Hanna creek. At the same moment
an east-bound freight was passing on the
other track. One of tbe wrecked cars caught
the car next to the caboose on this train,
wrecking the caboose and badly using up the
pushing engine. Eighteen loaded and thir
teen empty cars, together with engine 1313,
are a total wreck. Tbe debris took fire at
once, but was held in check by the local fire
Forty to Fifty Men on the Train.
Engineer Caldwell and Fireman Fralich
went down with the locomotive and are still
under tbe wreck. Tbe loss of life can not
be accurately estimated. Aside from tbe
trainmen it is known that there were be
tween forty and fifty men on tbe west-bound
train who had been working at Johnstown.
They were paid oft Tuesday and were en
deavoring to reach their homes. Tbe in
jured were attended by tba Pennsylvania
Railroad company's surgeons, and with tbe
exception of those whose injuries are too
critical to allow them to be removed, were
sent to The county home or to the hospital in
PilKshurg. Tbe dead were washed and

Toledo, O., June 27. Messrs. C. A. King
& Ca 'a annual crop circular was issued
yesterday. Their reports cover the states of
Ohio, Michigan, In liana, Illinois, Kansas
and Missouri. The circular says: The pres
ent outlook for winter wheat, is very favor
able. Kansas and Missouri report the best
prospect they have ever had. The other
four states show prospects above an average,
maiana oeiug tue poorest, with soma re
ports of damage from insects. ' Prospects are
better than three weeks ago, when the June
agricultural bureau reports were gathered,
except in ausaourt and h wnsas, where tba
prospects conki not be improved.
; Mueh Better Than Last Tear.
Prospects are much better than a year ago
in all of the states named. A few sections
of Illinois and Indiana, Michigan and Ohio
report worse, but they are exceptional.
There is very little old wheat left, half of
the reports say not to exceed an eighth of
tha last crop. Tbe corn crop is generally
backward, but prospects are very favorable
in Kansas and Minjouri, good in Illinois,
rawer poor tn Indiana and Ohio, ana re

Columbus, O., June 27. Without asking
for it in fact, in face of a statement that
he did not want it and even without the for
mality of his name being put before the con
vention. Governor Foraker was renominated
at the Republican convention yesterday. It
was evident at the last convention that the
Ohio wing of the Republican ' party bad no
objection to third terms for governor, and
yesterday they beat the record, for the honor
done Governor Foraker was done for the
fourth time. No other Ohio man has ever
been given four, or even three, consecutive
nominations for governor, and his grasp on
tbe Republicans . of the state is apparently
stronger than ever. All of the an ti-Foraker
men behaved haudsomely in tbe convention,
and the convention seemed to break up in
Organisation and Nominations.
The convention met at 8:30 a. m., and the
permanent organization was soon completed
by making tbe temporary organization con
tinuous. Tbe resolutions telegraphed yes
terday were read and adopted unanimously,
the indorsement of the utterances of tbe na
tional convention of 1S88 being considered
sufficient on tbe subject of civil service re
form, and heading off any attempt to get up
a fight on tbat point Nominations for gov
ernor were then called for, and the follow
ing were named: E. L. Lampson, of Ashta
bula; Wilson Vance, of Hancock; Ashbel
Jones, of Medina; R. R. Dawes, of Mari
etta; Joseph W. O'Neal, of Warren; J. B.
Neil, of Columbus; R. P. Kennedy, and ,
Joseph O'Nsil, of Lebanon. No mention of
Governor Foraker 's name was made.
One Ballot and a Stampede.
The voting was promptly begun and there
was much curiosity to see what the tactics
of tbe Foraker men, in not naming their'
candidate, would result in. The latter
showed that if they were not saying any
thing they were on hand, for the governor
received 207 votes, which was 80 more than
the next highest, Kennedy coming next with
Tbe other votes were as follows:
Dawes, 6; Morey, 47; Jones, 96; O'Neal, W;
Lampson, b9; Vance, 45; Neil, 87; Gibson,
23; Gea Bushnell, 1. There were &27
votes cast - As soon as the announce
ment was made that . a second
ballot would be taken there was a rush from
all the delegations to get into line on the For
aker side, and before it was half through
there was no doubt of who the nominee
would be. An almost unanimous shout for
Foraker went up and every Inxly wanted his
nomination made unanimous, which was
done amid great enthusiasm. A committee
composed of McKinley, Grosvenor, and
Mayor Gardner (of Cleveland) were ap
pointed to bring the invincible governor to
tbe convention ball and in a few moments ha
au Ovation to "Invincible Joe,"
As Governor Foraker advanced to the
stage he received a great ovation, and, upon
being introduced by Maj. McKinley, was
again cheered coutiuuously for several min
utes. Once more, be said, he came to accept
tbe nomination, which was not acocading to
bis wishes. AH his plans and even ambition
were in another direction, but be considered
that tbe party had the right to call him at
any time. He therefore put aside personal
feeling. He understood the work before
him. He considered it a call of duty to be
a candidate for governor and for governor
alone. Cheers. "God willing, I shall be
your governor for the term to which I am
elected. Cheers. We have had few as im
portant elections as tbe one approaching.
The senatorship is at stake. Constitutional
amendments are pending, one of which pro
vides for biennial elections. This adds
greater importance to - the election. Tbe
question is whether Ohio shall be under
Republican or Democratic control at tbe
time of tbe election in lsyi"
He then declared that the state was in a
splendid condition as the result of Republi
can rule and contrasted it with the situation
after a Democratic administration: said a
Republican must he made the colleague in
the United States senate of John Sherman;
give the Democracy a rap and took a shy at
ex-rreshient Cleveland, and closed as fol
lows: "At Washington a noble, Christian
gentleman presides. Our flag kisses tbe
breeza. Wa have unity and enthusiasm to
lead us forward to victory. You helpine.
God helping we shall have a Republican leg
islature, a Republican governor, a Repub
lican senator.- Great applause.
Alter roraker's speech the convention
quickly completed its work by nominating
E. L. Lampson, of Ashtabula county, for
lieutenant governor; Judge T.J. Dick man.
of Cleveland, for supreme judge; John C
Brown, of Jefferson, treasurer; U. BL Hes
ter, clerk of the supreme court; D. K. Wat
son, of Franklin, for attorney general; John
Hancock, of Ross, for commissioner of
schools; and W. M. Hahn, for member of
board of public works.
