Was a Surprise to Jrnk's Friends.
The selection of Hilary A. Herbett for
the navy has lieen expcctud for several days
but Mr. Olney 's name had not been men
tioned in connection with the cabinet and
bis selection is a surprise to everybody,
particularly to the friei-ds . of George A.
Teaks. Hilary A. Herbert has been In con
gress for many years and has acted as
chairman of the naval committee of the
house. He is thoroughly familiar with
tbe work that has been done toward plac
ing the United States navy on a proper
footing and his knowledge of the present
condition of the vessels under construction
and which have been planned, makes him
a most desirable man for the head of the
; Three Places for the Sonth.
Richard Olney is one of the leading
practitioners of the Massachusetts bar.
He has not held any political position or
been prominent in political matters, but

In the cabinet and that of Herbert gives
the south three positions. Cleveland'
callers yesterday were Daniel S. Iamont
and Mrs. Iamont, who arrived from New
York at 8:30 p. m. and left at 6; Father
J-arkin'and Captain P. J. Cunningham,
cf Washington. Father Larkia is an ex
chaplain in the army and Captain Cun
ningham has a position in the war depart
ment. Their call was, they said, purely a
patriotic visit to the president-elect on
Washington's birthday. Cleveland re
mained at home all day.
Sketch of the Buy State Man.
Richard Olney is one of the most prom
inently known members of the legal pro
fession, not only in Massachusetts, but in
the country. He has at least twice re
fused a place on the bench of tbe
Massachusetts supreme court, and when
the last vacancy occurred in theoRlce of chief
justice of tbe supreme court of the United
States Mr. Olney was very prominently
mentioned in connection with the place.
Vhese offices he has refused and hasdevoted
himself diligently to the practice of his
profession. He is at present general counsel
for the Boston and Maine railway, the
Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe, and the
Chicago, Burlington and tuincy railways,
-succeeding in the latter position the late
Sidney Bartlett. He was born in Oxford,
Mass., in 1855.

congressman from this state, Mr. Johnson:
"Notwithstanding your assurance to the

NOTABLES IN A WRECK.
A Michigan Mho Distinguishes Ilirasell
Caring for the Injured.
Philadelphia, Feb. 23. The wreck in
west Philadelphia yesterday.by which four
persons lost theT lives, might have had
some distinguished victims of if they had
not been lucky. The express train ran right
through an acci mmodation train, wreck
ing three cars of the latter but going
through unhurt itself. On the express
were a number t.f prominent men, among
them Congressmen Dingley and Belknap,
ex-Postmaster Gt neral Frank Hatton.Sena
tor Washburn, Major John M. Carson, and
O. H. Painter, veil known Washington
correspondents. All rendered what aid
they could to the injured passengers, but
no one was more energetic than Congress
man Charles E. Ik-lknap, of Michigan. He
grasped the awful situation at once laud
did splendid service in rescuing the wound
ed and caring for the dead.
Belknap Had I'seful Nerve.
Mrs. Mintzer's head was severed from
her body and left on the roadway. The
very sight of it frightened people away.
Congressman Belknap tenderly picked it
up and placed it by the body. Several of
those on the express train who had left
Washington for New York with the ob
ject of witnessir g the unfurling of the
American flag rn the steamship New
York were so ov rcome by the distressing
scenes and terribh; suffering of the injured
that they abandoned their trip to New
York and retun ed to the capital. The
train having the presidential party was
delayed only a short time a short distance
below the wreck and then proceeded to

Ssdim ItepuSlicatts ' Fear the Supreme
Court Wilf Decline Jurisdiction.
TOPEKA, Kan., Feb. 23. The hearing of
evidence in the habeas corpus case was re
sumed yesterday. Speaker Dansmore, of J
the Populist bouse; State Treasurer Bid- '.
die, and other witnesses were examined. .
The only thing of interest was the ad mis-'
sion by Riddle that he opened up his office
to pay Populist members at 4 o'clock in the
morning because he knew an injunction
was to be served. The -evidence is all in,
and the arguments will be made today. A
decision is expected on Friday. ' Republic
ans are not as confident as they were, for
they are beginning to fear that the court
will hold that it has no jurisdiction.
Populist Aid For Waggener.
The senatorial question was the absorb
ing tropic yesterday. The stalwart Demo
crats have joined the Waggener boom.
Which practically unites all Democrats
except Judge Martin's immediate follow
ersfor Waggener. The Republican lead
ers aay three Populists agreed to walk
Into the joint convention and vote for
Waggener if the supremecourt decides that
the Republican house is legal. This will
give Waggener an udvantage over Martin,
as he will receive more legal votes than the
Gresham Looks for Opposition.
New York, Feb. 23. A special to The
Press from St. Paul says: A letter received
yesterday by a friend from Judge Gresham
empowers him to announce that the judge
will not resign his position till he is con
firmed secretary of state by the senate. It
is said that there are many Democratic
senators who will accept any good reason
offered upon which to vote in executive
session against the confirmation of the man
who has belonged to three parties in three
months, and that Gresham realizes this.
Mlcbican Republicans Nominate.
Dktkoit, Feb. 23. The Republican state

Must Make Restitution.
Springfield, Feb. 23. The opinion of
the attorney genenl in answer to the reso
lution of the senate in regard to the legal
ity of tbe action of the ex-state auditors
and ex-state treasurers, who are alleged to
have appropriated to their own use certain
fees, emoluments, and interest on public
funds, have leen prepared. The opinion
of the attorney general is against the ex
officials in every instance, and he says that
"it would seem ttrange that any person
possessing ordinary intelligence should im
agine that such offi ?er was entitled to other
compensation than the salary appropriated
Auditors All Wrong, Too.
The opinion specifically denies the right
of the auditor to retain the 5,000 of the in
eu ranee department as a perquisite of his
office. The attorney general also holds
that the auditors I ave all violated the law
in drawing the t" per day as ex-officio
members of the state board of equaliza
tion. He pays that there is no doubt of
the state's right to recover the monies im
properly retained, and that in compliance
with the recent instructions of Acting
Governor Gill he will this week institute
legal proceed, igs against ex-State Treas
urer Kdward S. Wilson and his bondsnieu
to recover interest on the public funds,
bat that he h.-Kitatei to begin suits against
other ex-officials at the time on account
of insufficiency of evidence.

Folic Called on to Guard the Tarda
Santa Fa Bailway Men Also Present De
mands Managers Bold a Conference,
but Their Decision Not Announced A
Struggle That May Be Serious World's
Chicago, Feb. 23. All the switchtend
rs employed in the yards of the Chicago
and Western Indiana Belt compauy struck
at 5 o'clock last evening for better pay.
All trains going out of Dearborn station
were unable to move and yard traffic on the
Louisville, New Albany and Chicago; Wa
bash; Chicago and Kastern Illinois; Chi
cago and Erie, Grand Trunk and Santa
Fe roads was stopped.
Police Doing Guard Duty.
City policemen are on guard duty at
Dearborn station and adjoining yards. Be
tween 150 and 200 men are out because
they were refused, as they say, an increase
in wages from W5 and 50 to $55 add $05.
Police Inspector Koch says he anticipates
no trouble unless other train employes try
to throw the switches.
Managers Go Into Conference.
The Belt Line men presented their de
mands yesterday morning. The next move
was made by the Santa Fe switchmen.
They received very little encouragement,
ar.d at the conclusion of the conference a
meeting of the general managers of all tbe
roads entering the city whs called. It was
impossible to learn what action has been or
will be taken by the en rals, but in view
of their meeting a few weeks ago, when
it was decided to take a stand against the
probable demands of the switchmen, it is
safe to predict that the men will not gain
their point without a struggle.
The Men Repudiate a Compromise.
General Manager Thomas, of the Chi
cago and Western Indiana, and a commit
tee of tiie switchtenders held a conference
yesterday afternoon and a compromise
agreement wis reached. The switchtend
ers, however, declined to accept the report
of the committee and quit work without
warning. The strike occurred at that
time of day when suburban traffic is heav
iest and manv of t!i:w living out of town
were unable to ea i home last night.
The places of tlii i-w chtenders are being
filled by switclmm.. .tud other employes
of the road, nnd h few trains were moved
during the evening.

CESTKAI.IA, Ills., Feb. 20. The coal mine
troubles existing here for the past two
months culminated jesterday morning in
a riot at the Big Four mine, led by about
twenty women, encouraged by double the
number of men. The women were armed
with clubs. The pit boss was severely
beaten, a considerable grudge existing
again jt him. Several of the miners were
debarred from going down into the mine in
the morning, but went down at noon.

of the stock train seeing a collision was
inevitable reversed the engine and jumped.
The force of the collision started the stock
train back, and with no one in the engine
to stop it and going down grade it gained
rapid velocity. Twelve men were in tbe
caboose. The runaway train crashed with
terrific force into the second section follow
ing it, totally demolishing the caboose,
badly wrecking six freight cars and kill
ing thirty or forty head of cattle.
