Shot In the Neck by His Own Tistol.
When the news reached Golden, Co!., a
wrecking train was ordered out and was
starting when Robert Pruin, an employe
of the road, a tempted to board the engine.
In doing so his revolver fell from bis hip
pocket, the hammer htriking a stone and
the weapon was discharged, the ball tak
ing effect iu the man's neck, making a
wound which will result fatally. Those
seriously injured in the wreck "were left
at Golden in the hands of physicians
while those not badly hurt were brougLt
to this city and taken to their homes i r
the hospitals. It is not known exactly
what caused the wreck, but as the traia
was a narrow gauge and the coaches very
top-heavy it is thought that the train Wis
rnnning too rapidly for safety.
SUNK IN THE ATLANTIC.
Ad Vnknown Sailing Vessel Collides With
the Arizona and Founders.
New York, Sept. 14. The steamship Ari
zona of the Guion line, which left New
York on Saturday, Sept. 5, for Liverpool
arrived yesterday at ijueenstowu in a
battered condition. Early on the morn
ing of the Cth, while the Arizona was
steaming rapidly in a fog, an unknown
sailing vessel collided with the Arizona.
The shock was very great, and aroused
the passengers from their beds. For a
time the greatest excitement reigned,
until it was found that the steamer was
not, as many feared, about to go to the
Went Down Withont a Sign.
Search was made for the colliding ves
sel, but not a sign could be seen nor was
a cry heard. The terrible shock had ap
parently crushed the sailing vessel in a
twinkling, and caused her to founder.
Part of the bowsprit of the vessel remain
ad on the Arizona's deck and other wreck
age indicated the fate of the unfortunate
mariners. The Arizona's machinery bad
not suffered by the collision, and the
voyage was pursued at the usual speed,
and without further accident.

under the bridge was crowded with nine
workmen, who were about quitting when
the ropes broke, precipitating the entire
. party into the river, fifty feet below. The

THE FOOD QUESTION IN GERMANY.
Facts That Add One More Country to
Onr Grain Market.
Washington-, Sept. 14. Consul General
Mason, of Frankfort, in a report to the
state dt part men t on what he terms the
German crisis in breadstufTs, presets
some very interesting statements respect
ing the most notable commercial event of
the year in Europe the Russian decree
forbidd.ng the exportation of rye from
Russia to any foreign country. This Mr.
Mason regards as equivalent to an official
declara' ion that the harvest of cereals in
Russia s so deficient that the export of
rye mutt be forbidden in order to avert
danger of famine there. Mr. Mason pre
sents some data which shows how ser
iously i his unexpected edict is likely to
affect tie bread supply of Germany. Very
little pure wheat bread, he says, is eaten
by the middle and lower classes in Ger
many. Five-Sixths of the Supply Cnt Off.
TLe "-tail of life" to a vast majority of
tbe German people is black bread, made
with fliur tround from a mixture of rye
aud au inferior quality of wheat. The
consumption of this material is so enor
mous tb xt Germary imported 47,3T3 tons
of rye, o: which bo per cent, as well as 55
per cent-, of the whole import of wheat
into Ge-many, came from Russia. The
recent elict therefore cuts off nearly five
sixths of tbe entire foreign rye supply of
Germany. How difficult it would be to
fill this great deficit by increased impor
tations f-om other countries, Mr. Mason
says, wi.l be evident from the fact that
the entire export of rye to Germany from
1SS4 to 1SS$. from six countries which
rank nest to Russia as producers of
cereals, averaged but 6,142,331 bushel a
Must Send Over Here for Bread.
The delicit in Germany cannot be filled
from any source of supply on that side of
the At lat tic, and the effect of the situa
tion upoti the rye market has been start
ling. On the third of August last the
effect of the meagre harvest had raised
the mark 't price to 52 34 per ton. Then
came the Russian edict, and within two
weeks tie price had risen to $61 fcS per
ton. Add this to a short and inferior
potato crc p throughout nearly tbe whole
of Germany, and it will be seen, Mr.
Mason sa; s, that the food question there
has assumed an ominous aspect, and in
the end th people of Germany, like
those of I raace aud Englaod, will have
to draw on the well filled granaries tf the
United S:ates for a large part of their
foot! supp y durine the coming year.

The Democratic Issue in Iowa.
Chicago, Sept. 14. A dispa'ch from
Perry, la., says that Governor Boies
spoke there Saturday to an immense au
dience. He insisted that Senator Allison
had not talked of the real issue in this
state, which was prohibition aud not the
tariff or silver question. The governor's
speech dea t mostly wi:h prohibition,
which he vigorously denounced. At Al
gona on tb same day there was a grand
Democratic rally, tbe speaker being
Colonel diaries A. Clark, of Cedar

speech to the prohibition question

GRASD Rapips, Mich., Sept. 14. "I came
to the conference conscious of no violation
either of morality or propriety, and my
year's work has been abundantly blessed
with conversions and collections. My
congregation asks for my return, and J.
A. Ramer, of my charge, is so earnest
about it that he offers to pay my entiro
salary if I will come back. I did no
wrong, I have made no apologies, and
have none to offer, and have given no
promises. When I go home I will con
tinue to work and drive my horse." So
spoke Rev. John W. Arney yesterday
when asked about the decision of the con
ference in his case.
What the Committee Reported.
The committee to which the matter was
referred Friday made its report Stturday
to the effect that enough had been r.d
m'tted by Bi other Arney himself to cau?e
lurrow and regret. ' That thebispopbe
requested to admonish him to change his
0 urse; that his character be passed and
tbat he be continued in his present cla?s.
Rev. Arney came forward after the rtp-rt
wis adopted aud with bowed head toi k
h s medicine. TLe bishop said the brotc.tr
had a good record, and that he took it :or
granted that he was a good man, but was
sorry that be had brought this scandal
upon the church.
Must Bow to His Brethren's Will.
After saying that the brother was made
a martyr by the press and tbat he (the
bishop) would not be in such a position
for the wcrid, Bishop Xew man proceed
ed: "I know every man has right to his
private judgment and many things
may be lelt to conscience. Yet you
must remember the consensus of the con
ference is superior to your will. This
case has b?eu before this conference once
liefore; I trust it is now dead. I don't be
lieve you will ever come before us again.
1 hope you will, like a man, overcome
your passion; that you will abaudon your
besetting siu and throw off the weight
that is bearing you down."
A Vtliark at l:ase Ball Cranks.
Then the good bishop took a whack at
the base ball crauks, saying: "The broth
ers who attend the protvssiunal base ball
games, which are gambling institutions
and no better thau horse raciug,
should also abaudon tbe eviis of their way.
But the error of one man is no excuse for
that ot another. You are a young man,
talented and with ability, and the ques
tion is simply whether you will submit
to your ruling passion and identify
yourself with a monster evil, or rise up to
the dignity and honor of a pastor."
Satan Reproving sin.
Continuing to speak of the matter yes
terday, Mr. Arney said: "Rev. J. A.
Sprague, of Three Rivers, is the man who
brought this humiliation upon me, and he
attended the horse race at Three Rivers
himself. This I know to be a fact, but I
have said nothing of it. I'm too much of
a gentleman and he hasn't enough manli
ness to come out and say so. The day I
attended the horse race I gave my ticket
at the gate to a Methodist deacon. I
make a distinction," said Mr. Arney, "be
tween drivinu f jr a stake and driving for
a prize. The former may lie in the nature
of gambling, but the latter is as inno;
cent aud inoffensive as a Demorest mednl
contest held under our Methodist church
What is the Matter with Cogshall.
"Another thing, my friend. Dr. Ccg
sliall, who was so ferocious in attacking
me on Friday on my horse record is quite
an admirer of ahorse himself. Heu-id
to keep a sorrel nag at Eaton Rapids that
hs thought could go, but it wasn't much
of a horse. The only trouble with Cog
sliall is that he's not bright enouuhio
make anything on Lis horses, while I
make profit. Coshall is probably dis
c m raged with the business and has gone
back ou it."
Can Afford To Be Independent
Brother Arney can afford to be inde
pendent. He has au offer to take the
management of a breeding farm at f l.GOO
a year and expense. He friends think he
wiil soon retire from the field. He has
had hard luck as a preacher. His first
charge was at Xorthport at a
fcioo salary. He worked as a
painter during his leisure hours
to swell his income and support his
family. At the end of a year the elders
asked bow much he had earned outsiiiw
and they deducted the amount from his
salary on the ground tbat his time be
lonced to them. At Saranac his salary
is $4(10 and he has a wife and three chil
dren to support.
KANSAS IS PAYING HER DE3TS.
Remarkable Showing in Four Months
and This Tear's Crops to Come.
TorEKA. Knn.. Sept 14. The releases
of farm mortgages in Kansas during the
four months preceding the 1st of Septem
ber make a remarkable showing. The to
tal mortgage indebtedness recorded dur
ing the period in flftv fonr counties was
c4,GS3.805; released, $0,370,270; excess of
releases, $1,688,455, or 26. per cent. Very
little of this excess in releases comes from
the sale of this year's crops, so that the
total will probably reach $10,000,000 for
the present year.
