colored camp in Wayman's grove, and
delivered an address to a small but eh

Speaking of Hayti, Mr. Douglass said
he was somewhat tonuge-tied, be

Iffer Crop In the Koi
Has Been Anticipated.
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 10.—The potato
crop is turning out quite well in the
Northwest, says the Minneapolis Market
Record. This crop, owing to cheapness
in most years, has gone into wasteful
consumption. The greater part of the
country in the Northwest, in recent re
ports, showed that very little attention
is usually paid to raising potatoes for
sale. Whenever there is a short supply,
however, that brings up the price to an
attractive figure, people are surprised by
the amount of potatoes raised above
home wants. When $1 a bushel was
talked of, the whole of this part of the
country discovered all at once that there
were but few potatoes in a hill and
small ones at that. In some sections
that is true. But since the high prices
begin to bring them out the groweis
themselves are astonished that the pro
duction is so large. Finally, they came
to market so freely that the price has
gone down below expectations.
Serious Triple Accident on the Blaek
Hills and Fort Pierre Hoad.
DEADWOOD, S. D., Sept. 10.—The pas­

•Fort Pierre railroad ran into a lot of
rocks which had fallen on the track from
an overhanging cliff, about ten miles
this side of Piedmont, derailing the en
gine and shaking up the passengers gen
erally. A telephone message was sent
by one of the road's officials for a wreck
ing train, and another hurried off to
dispatch alone engine for the same pur
pose. The result was a collision and
complete wreck of both engines, and
the injury of some fifteen or twenty of
the wreckers to the extent of broken
legs, arms, bruised heads and bodies,
but nothing more serious. This road is
a narrow gauge, operated between Lead
City and Piedmont by the Homestake
Mining company, and had just been
opened to the public.

Potr^BBBmn,- N. Y., Sept. 10.-*-A
ast St. Louis and ^Mcago express,
which leaves New York on the New
York Central at tf p. m. The train was
stopped by a danger signal south of Old
Troy, which is 500 yards south of the
New Hamburg drawbridge. Two min
utes previous the flagman had discov
ered several ties standing endwise in the
culvert near Old Troy, and when he
took hold hold of one of them to remove
it he was fired upon from the bushes on
the east side" of the track. Knowing
the fast express was nearly due he ran
southward and set the danger signal,
which stopped the train.
A Trainman's Story.
A railroad employe who was on the
train says that two men out rowing on
the river near that point saw some men
busy on the tracks, and when they dis
appeared they crawled quietly up. They
found a steel rail wedged in the cattle
guard in the same wey- as at Albany,
and braced up in the same way by
pieces of flange- iron. With all their
strength they could not move it, and
started down the track to warn the
Chicago limited express. They met a
trackman, and he, swinging his red lan
tern, started to stop the train. In an
instant several shots rang out, and one
took effect in the trackman's shoulder.
However, the train was stopped about
100 yards south of the obstruction.
