Fatal Railway Wreck at Well.ville, O.
Four Men Killed Bad Accident to a
Chicago, Oct. 18. Iater reports from
the great storm which swept the chain
of lakes last Friday tend to increase
the list of disasters. The missing boats
are being heard from fit" all point,
and an approximate list of losses can at
last be made. Thus far it is known that
forty-five people were lost and ten vessels
became total wrecks. Twenty-nine more
are on the beach or water-logged, and
whether they can be saved or not will de
pend much upon the weather and their po
sition. With these twenty-nine no est
mate of losses can as yet be made, but un
derwriters deem it probable that at least
thirteen of them will become total losses.
In addition to this long list of casualties
nearly every boat out in the big storm
suffered heavy damages, n' t hough they
were able to keep afloat ami save them
selves from going ou lee shores.
Fight More for the Death Kll.
From Toledo comes the report that the
schooner F. C. Leighton is sunk in Gavely
bay. She was owned and sailed by Cap-
tain 13en Calhoun, of Clayton X. Y., and
he was accompanied on the fatal trip by
his wife and S year-old daughter, and
Joseph Harlow, son of Captain George
Harlow, of Tolod). The list of the crew-
is as follows, with a possibility that tLere
were changes: James llogan. mate, Clay
ton, X. V : lioilfivy Zufchit, Cnuaud.iisua,
X. V.: Sam Young, cook, Itochester, X.
Y., and Herbert Stake of Ibifi'u'.o. This
will make the deal li roll lift y-three and
the schooner litilie HicharJs, just arrived
at Frie. Fa., report passing a dn7.cu float
ing bodies ou the way over, but owing to
1 he crippled condition of Lis boat he could
not pick up tl.iau rs.
. not her Added (o the List.
Four miles off Parisian Island, in Lake
Superior, the spars of a three-master are
visible slicking out of the water. She has
not been identified, but probably carried
six to eight in her crew, which semis the
death roll up to sixty. As to money losses,
leaving out these last two. the following
is a list of lost vessels and their value:
Steamer Dean Itichmcnd, $l'iO,0: steamer
Wocoken, 5.000; schooner James 1). Saw
yer, $34,000; schooner Minnehaha, i4iKK:
schooner Hunter, l,tU; schooner oluu
teer, $2,000: tug Acme, $i(Ki; vacht En
terprise, 1,000; schooner Falconer, ftj.OOO,
barge Knight-Templar. 4.000; schooner
Johu B. Merrill, $3o.W.
Of these the Richmond, Wocoken, and
Acme were foundered ami are total losses.
The others are stram'led or ashore and the
aggregate losses on these and their cargo
will exceed fatWttyt'. Th:s is the estimate
of a conservative underwriter alter he ha.l
gone over the list carefully. To these I
li.ru res must next be adite.l Ios-e of not
less than ;:.. for tnaior uam.ig

Oct. 14. to the li.-t of t:i-toric g-ile on the
pile in th'e corner as stateii. "Ibeianic
among the men lasted but an instant,
when the men who were unhurt extricat
ed themselves from the tangled up mas
of humanity nnd then turned their atten
tion to aiding those who were unable to
help themselves, the car being soon
nipt led and seventeen men being found
to be seriously injured. The injuries con
sisted of broken anus and legs, cuts on
the head aud body and painful burns.
One man was ruptured across the stomach
and another Lad a cut down his forehead
hrough the skull as cleau as though it
had been done with a knife.
So far as is now knowu no lives will be
lost, but it was amhaculous escape from
instant death for all. The known injured
are: James M. Daffv, contused wound or
face and burn on right hand; C. li. Swei
gert; incised wound in middle of forehead,
probable fracture of skull, and burns on
both bands: James Etiglehart, head badly
cut. John li. Richie, lacerated wound on
forehead, right arm burned, fracture of
right knee, and general contusion of body;
George M. Wyandt, right arm broken at
the elbow aud hands burned; George Say

hurt; John Hostler, right leg broken.

Laid lo at Chicago.
Chicago, Oct. 1. Captain "Jack" Ad
ams, the popular commander-in-chief of
the G. A. H., is bedridden in his room at
the hotel here. He came to Chicago to
Tisit the fair, and pat in live days at the
park, taking more exercise than A bullet
he has as a souvenir of the rebellion would
stand. The result was septic fever, caused
by an accumulation of pus. To remove
this pus au operation was performed on
the captain by Drs. Tallman and Ferger.
It is impossible to determine what its re
sult will be, but Captain Adams is resting
easy under the influeuce of anaesthetics,
and there is hope that he may recover.
Nobody is allowed to see him but his wife
and the physicians, and everything is be
ing done at the hotel to keep his rooms
It took an hour and a half to perform
the operation, and it is now learned that
the patient stood it well and is quite hi
larious over its success. It will take bim
three weeks to recover. The operation
consisted iu a thorough cleansing of bis
old wound' and it is hoped that it will
perfectly heai now.

The passengers on the limited were badiy
frightened. None, however, was eriously
injured. From the meager details re
ceived by Superintendent A. Ii. Starr the

sible for the accident. The crash occurred
at the wett end of the Wellsville yard.
The freight train was crossing the track
almost at right angles with the approach

in transit. They all resided in this city,
being taken to and from their work in a

There were seventy in the gang and they
were coming homeward all unconscious of

Guarantee Investment company, as spon
as they heard indictments had been found
against them for violation of the anti
lottery law, went over to the court and
gave bail to appear when wanted. At the
offices of the company in the Adams Ex
press building matters seemed to be mov
ing along as usual. President George M.
MacPouald intimated in rather broad
terms that the prosecution was just what
his company desired. He said that for
many months he bad been harassed by
life iusurance societies and that the pres

"This company," he said, '"i about two
years old, and from its inception it has
been fought by the insurance companies.
They have reccgni.ed in the Guarantee
Investment company a rival, and they
have been seeking by every means possi

have had tl is question of misuse of the
mails sprung upon us time and again
and we are only too anxious to force the
issue to a conclusion aud put an end once

Of course we are perfectly confident as to

"The government claims not that the
coinpanv is a lolterv but that in the trans

meiit of chance. Well, perhaps there are
elements of chance in this business, but if
they come under the provisions of the lot

Meantime the government has barred all
monev orders payable to the company
from the mails, and done what it could to
break up the company's business.
