road left the track one mile south of
Nauieoki, Ills., reultini; in the injury of
some thirty people. The wreck is remark

the 4" ' passengers. The train was in

Nameoki had been passed there was a clear
stretch of twelve miles of straight level
road to East St. Louis. The engineer put
on all force and the train was going forty
miles an hour when there was a sudden
jar, followed by the slowing of the train.
The rails had spread between the locomo
tive and the cars following went over a
six foot embankment.
The bullet car behind the baggage oar
swung across the track and the gas tank
exploded, setting fire to the first chair car
and the buffet car, which were consumed.
The uninjured immediately set to work to
rescue their less fortunate companions.
Two physicians on the train did noble

-Opening of the Farmers Congress at
Chicago A Suggestion a to Literature
What Is Necessary for the Perpetua
tion of Democratic Government.
Chicago, Oct. 17. Over 500 delegates
participated in the opening sessions of the
World's Congress of Agriculture at the
Art institute. The exercises were held in
the Hall oi Columbus and as the World's
Congress of Women's Christian Temper
ance Union occupied the Hall of Wash
ington across the corridor more of less
confusion of a humorous nature occurred,
at intervals the ladies of the white ribbon
findins themselves a r.ong the agricultur
alists and some of the latter rounding up
among the temjer:nce advocates. Mat
ters were finally adjusted, however,
by the display of big sigus, through
which medium the horny handed farmers
and the ladies found their respective loca
tions iu ieace and happiness. Most of the
delegates to tue nriruhui.il congre-s
were desigua'ed by the governors of states
and territories, aud every sectiou of the
country is well represented.
What thf Congress Will Discuss.
Its delitierat .ons will extend over several
days, and in its several departments it will
discuss gihid roads, household economics,
farm life, forestry ornithology, veterinary
surgery, mental culture, drainage, and
numerous other topics. The welcoming
session w.is held in the afternoon, but the
formal orgauiiat iou of the congress took
place at nig!:t. Hon. Samuel W. Allerton
presided. yi!iotm tiiose on the platform
were Secretary i.f Agriculture Morton;
Professor K.liott Cones; Milton lieorge;
Chief Buchanan, of the World's fair; Hon.
B. Fernow, chief of tiie division of forestry
of the l ulled States department of agri
culture, aud the secretaries of several state
boards of agriculture.
Morton Talks About the Farmer.
Chairman Allerton opened the session
with a review of the various subjects to
be considered during the week, and then a
hearty reception was accorded Mr. J. Stea
ling Moitou, secretary of agriculture. In
his address, which was not directed to any
set topi.", he said among other things:
During the late perturbations in the field
of finance aud commerce the farmers of
this country have suffered less than any
other class. In their homes the sheriff
has appeared but seldom. Among their
farms no processions of the unemployed
have marched. All through these last six
mouths the farmer has furnished few fail
ures, less of protested paper aud least of
want of all t he employments of human
ity in this great republic. But the Amer
ican farmer has foes to contend with.
1 lie l'ie oT tiie granger.
"The most insidious and destructive foes
to the farmer is the professional farmer,
the promoter ot -raugisaud Alliances, who
for political purposes firms the farmer. It
is true thai . mer'caa farm life is isolated,
and that in the newer sections there is too
little of soc al pleasure and festivity, but
my hope for the future of the farmer is
not based on treual i uisness. He will uot
succeed letter by forming Granges and
Alliances hich generally seek to attend
to some other business than farming, and
freijuent ly propose to run railroads and
banks, aud even propose to establish new
systems of coinage tor the government

of economic question.

In addition to these there were a num
ber of returning World's fair visitors from
St. Louis injured. They were couveyedto
their homes by friends before their names
could be leuned. None of the train crew
can give any theory concerning the cause
cf the disaster. The generally accepted
opinion is that the speed aud weight of
the locomotive caused the rails to spread
at a weak spot.
Dr. McCaudless, in charge of the relief
party, says that all his patients at St.
Mary's hospital are out of danger. En
gineer llegg, without waiting to see the
extent .f the disaster, went over to the
Big Four track to flag the approaching
train. No attention was paid to his sig
nals. It seemed to be a cbauce for the Big
Eour engineer to beat his rival in and he
took advantage of it.

"Humanity neutrally, umi the farmer
particularly, has uo enemy equal in ef
ficiency for evil to ignorance; therefore
each tiller of t lie soil should investiga'-e
for himself various methods of cultivating
lands, of pr. ducing good crops, and of
securing remunerative markets. The one
book which 1 can recommeud the farm
ers for their perusal is Adams Smith's
'Wealth of Nations.' 1 would also have,
if possible, a daily newspaper from a great
city at every fireside. The daily uewspa
per is an educator, because it leads out into
full view every morning all the markets of
the world. It. turns the light upon all the
causes of the fluctuating markets. It con
stantly illustrates the terse truthfulness
of that great setiteuce in modern political
economy: 'A market for products is pro
ducts in market."
Less legislation and more learning, less
gregariousiiess and more individuality,
less dependence upon associations with
t ue alliani es and the granges and more
self-relying independence based upon ac
quired facts is a fair statement of the
necessities of the American farmers. His
present condition and bis future is surely
an enviable oue compared with that of all
the other pursuits of the people. Society
should let the distribution of property
alone. The only proper function of gov
ernment is the conservation of life, lib
erty and property. The home habit aud
the custom of conserving homes in short
the love of home aud land is the basis of
public tranquility, prosperity and safety.
"Permanent homes for all people and as
many of those homes in the country as
possible are the best instrumentalities for
strengthening and erpetuating popular
government. There must be a recession
from city to rural life in the United States
during the decade beginning with lS'.H; a
readjustment rather a reapportionment
of population between city and country
in the United States is demanded to in
sure the safety of the republic. Love of
home is primary patriotism. No conspir
acies, no anarchy is evolved from the quiet
homes of the country, and to them and
the sincere love of them the f rieuds of
democratic government must look for the
preservation and perpetuation! of civil
liberty iu America."
Secretary Morton ws repeatedly inter
rupted by applause. William Ball, of
Michigan, spoke upon the agricul'ural
situation; ColonelJ. H. Brigham, of Ohio,
ou the relations of the farmer and agri
culture to other classes and industries;
Colonel J. M. Jones, of Idaho, upon com
