Was 4ood 1.1'rk.
Lima. O., May 5. Near Pastou, on the
Lake Krie and Western, train wreckers
placed crossties on the track just before
the express carrying a raree sum of money

right of way. It ran into the obstruction
and the engine and two cars were ditched.
A heavy freight train was close behind and
a flagman was hurried back to llag it.
When about -0 yards up the track he was
held up by masked men who thought he
was flagging the express.
They ordered him to return to the
wrecked train and he did, pot the whole
train crew and returned, but the men
could not be found. The freight train was
stopped and a me-senger hurried to I'a.x
tou, whence an alarm was sent all along
the line. Posses are searching for the rol
lers, for such they evidently were, but
have found no clue. The railroad has put
detectives on the case.

New York, May Receivers for the
National Cord.j;e Trust were appointed at
10 o'clock last night at Jersey City. At
that hour a closed carriage drove up to
Chancellor McGill's residence. In it were
Lawyer Gilbert Collins. F. X. Lineburg,
J. Cadwalleder, of Jersey City.and a repre
sentative of the banking house of Drexel,
Morgan & Co., whose name could not be
ascertained. They said that a demand for
"0,000 had lieen made upon the Cordage
company which could not. be raised and
that the creditor was going to apply for a
writ of attachment.
Hone to Frotect Interests.
In the face of this prospective summary
proceeding they wanted a receiver ap
pointed in order to protect the interests of
the other creditors. Mr. Collins proposed
that George W. Loper, the treasurer of the
company, be appointed. This proposal
was backed up by the Drexel-Morgan com
pany's representative. Chancellor McGill
thought that in such a case as this it would
be advisable to appoint two receivers.
There were no objections to this sugges
tion and Mr. Young was forthwith ap"

The precipitate break in stocks of the
past forty-eight hours was not unexpect
ed. It was the culmination of a series of
significant incidents. Standard railway
shares have not gone down seriously,mere
ly slipping off a few points in natural sym
pathy with surroundings, but the blow
fell with sickening effect on the industrij
als and the weak sisters among
the railroads. Leaving the coal
ers out of the question, the break in

independent causes, the shrinkage in some

Looking to Washington for Help.
The general feeling on the street is that
the treasury must come to the aid of New
York or that the present depression wiil
increase and the World's fair will not only
be ruined but panic and di-aster will over
spread the country. There were rumors
that a request had leen sent to Secretary
Carlisle to come to New York or.ee more
t.i confer. It is hoped that a .j.).oo;i.(Kin
exchange of gold for bonds may be effected
lietwecii the New York hanks and the
treasury department. Tighr money is un
doubtedly the cause of the present trouble.
FINANCIAL FLURRY AT GOTHAM.
Half a IHizeii Itrokers Fall Iovn Over
New Yokk, May ". Owing to the de
cline of industrial stock- and demoraliza
tion of others, there has been half a dozen
failures, lint there is no foundation for the
reports about any prominent banks K-ing
in trouble, although all of them are now
very conservative. The St. Nicholas bank
has sued, the Times for lilel for stating
that it was squeezed. The nnfortunates
were Henry Allen .V Co.. H. L. Smyth A:
Co.. Schuyler Wahlen. Hroker Heardsley,
S. K. Wilson and T. W. Hroford.
Peter O.uey was appointed receiver for
the Sargent Granite company, the assets of
which are f-HK,mJ and liabilities fi'.l.OOO.
The first six failures were all due to the
squeeze in National Cordage stock. An
authorized statement is made that the Na
tional Cordage company has not, as re
ported, applied for a receiver, and that it
can fully pay all dividends for the ensuing
year. There was great excitement all day
on 'change, but no great harm seems to
have 1,'n done.

Offered ly a Southerner Who Wanted Its
Left Hind Foot.
Washington, May 5. A tall, portly
gentleman, evidently of southern birth,
stood in the A' hite House grounds on his
way to see the president and shouted: "I'll
give $10 for the rabbit when you catch
him," to a half dozen or more persons who
were chasing a rabbit which had strayed
into the grounds and had been espied by
one of the mowers. The rabbit escaped,
and when the office seeker learned the fact
be shook his head regretfully and said:
"I'd willingly have given 10 for that rab
bit's left hind foot. To have caught him
right here in the White House grounds
would have been the best luck in the
world. I'd have got my consulship sure."
There was a fair-sized crowd of callers
on the president. Several of the delega
tions were after the office of recorder of
deeds of the District Columbia. The pres
ident assured all callers of his kindly feel
ings toward the negro race, but said with
reference to the office sought that he had
not yet decided on his policy, whether to
give it to a local man or an outsider or to
break the record and give it this time to a
white man. Representative. Outhwaite
learned that unless grave charges were filed
hereon Id not get Ohio Democrats appointed
to offices filled by Republicans until the
expiration of the four years' term of office.
Legislation for Michigan.
Lansing, May 5. Bills were favorably

sonal property over 5,iXH. The house
passed the bill amending the general game
law to protect homing pigeons, and the
anti-l'inkerton bill. Tue bill for a dairy
and food commission was killed, but the
vote was reconsidered.

Lincoln, Neb., May Interest in the
impeachment proceedings at the capitol
building lags. There is little of special
interest brought out. W. H. Dorgan,
prison contractor at the state H-nitentiary,
