track and rolled down a fifteen-foot em
bankment. It was followed by the mail
and two passenger coaches, one of which

Shot in the Neck by HI. Own Pistol.
When the news reached Golden, Co!., a
wrecking train was ordered out and was
starting when Robert Pruin. an employe
of the road, attempted to board the engine.
In doing so his revolver fell from bis hip
pocket, the hammer striking a stone aud
the weapon was discharged, the ball tak
ing effect in the man's neck, muking a
wound which will result fatally. Those
seriously injured in tho wreck were left
at Golden in the hands of physicians
while those not badly hurt were brought
to this city and taken to their homes r
the hospitals. It is not known exactly
what caused the wreck, but as the train
was a narrow gauge and the coaches very
top-heavy it is thought that the train ws
running too rapidly fur safety.
SUNK IN THE ATLANTIC.
.An fnknown Sailing Yeiwel Collide. With
the Arizona and Founder..
New Yor.K, Sept. 14. The steamship Ari
zona of the Guion line, which left New
York on Saturday, Sept. 5, for Liverpool
arrived yesterday at tiueenstowu in a
battered condition. Early on the morn
ing of the 6th. 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 Without 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, aud caused her to founder.
Part of the bowsprit of the vessel remain
ed on the Arizona"s deck aud oilier wreck
age indicated the fate of the unfortunate
mariners. The Arizona's machinery had
not suffered by the collision, and the
voyace was pursued at the usual speed,
and without fnrther accident.

Feet Criminal Carelessness.
SALTSBURO, Pa., Sept. 14 A terrible
accident occurred here Friday night at the
" railroad bridge. A swinging Bcaffold
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
river is very low, and the men fell in a
confused mass on the sharp stones, four
of them being fatally Injured, while the
rest were more or less bruised. The
tackle was old and unfitted for the pur

THE FOOD QUESTION IN GERMANY.
Fact. That Add One More Country to
Our Grain Market.
Washington, Sept, 14. Consul General
Mason, of Frankfort, in a report to the
state department on what he terms the
German crisis in breadstuffs, presents
some very interesting statements respect
ing the most notable commercial event of
the yew in Europe the Russian decree
forbid ling the exportation of rye from
Rnssi.i to any foreign country. This Mr.
Mason regards as equivalent to an official
declaration that the harvest of cereals in
Russia is so deficient that the export of
rye must be forbidden in order to avert
danger of famine there. Mr. Mason pre
sents tome data which shows how ser
iously this unexpected edict is likely to
affect the bread supply of Germany. Very
little pure wheat bresd, he says, is eaten
by the middle and lower classes in Ger
many. Fiie-Sixth. of the Supply Cut Off.
The "staff of life" to a vast majority of
the Grrman people is black bread, made
with f our tround from a mixture of rye
and an inferior quality of wheat. The
consumption of this material is so enor
mous tbat Germary imported W7,375tous
of rye, of which So per cent, as well as 55
per cent, of the whole import of wheat
into Germany, came from Russia, The
recent edict therefore cuts off nearly five
sixths of the entire foreign rye supply of
Germany. How difficult it would be to
fill this great deficit by increased impor
tations from other countries, Mr. Mason
says, will be evident from the fact that
the ent'.re export of rye to Germany from
1SS4 to 1&S. from six countries which
rank next to Russia as producers of
cereals, averaged but 6,14'2,331 bushel a
Mntt Send Over Here for Bread.
The deficit in Germany cannot be filled
from aty source of supply on that side of
the Atlantic, and the effect of the situa
tion upon the rye market has been start
ling. On the third of August last the
effect cf the meagre harvest had raised
the market price to $.V2 24 per ton. Then
came the Russian edict, and within two
weeks -he price had risen to J61 8S per
ton. Add this to a short and inferior
potato crop throughout nearly the whole
of Germany, and it will be seen, Mr.
Mason says, that the food question there
has asstmed an ominous aspect, aud io
the end xhn. people of Germany, like
those of France aud England, will hae
to draw on the well filled granaries f the
United States for a large psrt of their
food supply during the coming year.

The Democratic Issue in Iowa.
Chicago, Sept. 14. A dispatch fri,m
Perry, la., says that Governor Boies
spoke there Saturday to an immense au
dience. I'e insisted that Senator Allison
had not talked of the real issue in this
state, whi ?h was prohibition aud not the
tariff or silver question. The governor's
speech dialt mostly with prohibition,
which he vigorously denounced. At Al
gona on the same day there was a grand
Democratic rally, the speaker beiag
Colonel Chartes A. Clark, of Cedar
Rapids, w.io took the same line as Gover
nor Boies and devoted nearly all his
speech to t he prohibition question

Matter Alleged Incident of One of y i.
Charge. liUhop Men man'. Bemails
to the Erring Preacher A Disapproval
of Church Member. Attending Iiae
Grand Rapids, 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 couvetsions and collections. My
congregation asks fnr my return, and J.
A. Ramer, of my charge, is so earnest
about it tbat he offers to pay my entire
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. Aruey yesterday
wlien asked about the decision of the con
ference io his case.
What the Committee Reported.
The committee to which the matter was
referred Friday made its report S tturday
to the effect that enough had been r.d
rn'tted by Bi other Aruey himself to eaute
orrow and regret. " That thebispopbe
requested to admonish him to change his
0 urse; that his character be passed and
that he be continued in his present cla'S.
Rev. Aruey came forward after the report
Wis adopteil aud with bowed head tot k
b s medicine. The bishop said the brotl.er
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 scaudal
upon the church.
Must Bow to Hi. Brethren's Will.
After saying that the brother was made
a martyr by the press and that be (the
bishop) would not be in such a position
for the world, Bishop Newman proceed
ed: "I know every man has right to his
private judgment and many things
may lie lett 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 dou"t be
lieve you will ever come before us again.
1 hope you will, like a man, overcome
your passion; tbat you will abandon your
besetting sin and throw off the weight
that is bearing you down."
A Whack at l:aae Ball Crank..
Then the good bishop took a whack at
the base ball crauks, saying: "The broth
ers who attend the professional base ball
games, which are gambling institutions
and no better thau horse racing,
should aiso abandon the evils of their way.
But the error of one mau is no excuse for
thatot auother. You are a young man,
talented and with ability, and the ques
tion is simply whether you will suhmi;
to your ruling passion and identify
yourself with a mouster evil, or rise up to
the dignity and honor of a pastor."
Satan Keproving sin.
Coutinuing 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 be
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 be 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 driving far a stake and driving for
a prize. The former may 1 in the nature
of gambling, but the latter is as inooj
cent aud inoffensive as a Demorest niedHl
contest held under our Methodist church
What i. the Matter with CogshalL
"Another thing, my friend, Dr. Cg
sliall, who was so ferocious in attacking
me on Friday on my horse record is quite
an admirer of ahorse himself, lie u-id
to keep a sorrel nag at Eaton Rapids that
ha thought rould go, but it wasn't much
of a horse. The only trouble with Cog
shnll is tbat he's not bright enouahio
make anything on his horses, while I
make profit. Cogshall is probably dis
c m raged with the business and has gone
back on it."
Can Afford To Be Independent.
Brother Arney can afford to be inde
pendent. He has an offer to take the
management of a breeding farm at fl.GOO
a year and expenses. He friends think he
will soon retire from the field. He has
had hard luck as a preacher. His first
charge was at Nortbport at a
$.!U0 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 how much he had earned outsite
and they deducted the amount from his
salary on the ground that his time be
lonced to them. At Saranac his salary

KANSAS IS PAYING HER DEBTS.
Remarkable Showing in Four Month,

TorEKA, Ksn., Sept 14.-The releases
of farm mortgages in Kansas during the
four months preceding the 1st of Septem

tal mortgage indebtedness recorded dur
ing the period iu fifty four counties was
4,6S3,805: released, $6,370,270; excess of
releases, 11,680,405, or 26 per cent. Very
little of this excess in releases comes from
the sale of this year's crops, so tbat the
total will probably reach $10, 000,(00 for
the present year.
