BALTIMORE, Md., Sept. 10.—Frederick Douglass, United States minister to the island of Hayti, was an attendant at the colored camp in Wayman's grove, and delivered an address to a small but eh thusiatic audience. 'He said: "There was a time when we could not assemble as we do to-day to debate and contem plate the relation existing between us and our citizens generally. A Great Change Has Taken Place among the colored race, vast and won derful has it been. We are living among scenes that remind us of anew earth. The time has come when we can look our fellow citizens in the face and share in the glory of the country. We who came through toil and suffering know this." Speaking of Hayti, Mr. Douglass said he was somewhat tonuge-tied, be cause he was still in office and was go ing back. In reference to the negro question, he said that 100 years ago Hayti was surrounded by slavery, and the Carribean sea reddened by the curse. The negro was a slave every where and under every nation in the islands of the West Indies. But they Had the Manhood to Rise and drive out the men who tyranized them. These degraded, stupid negroes were not only able to assert their liberty, but to organize a government which they have carried on for eighty-seven years. They have sent their ministers to all Christian lands, and Hayti has never been known to break a treaty. OFFICIAL DENIAL DENIED. Three Killed in the B. tt O.

Sept. 10.—An Evening 1 Rapid City special Bays': Indian Wright, of the Rosebud agency, Whtifyas in the city Friday submitted to an interview in the Journal relative to great falling off in the census of Indians upon his agency and the appar ent discrepancy between the number of Indians actually upon the reservation anduthe number of rations issued. Agent Wright took charge, of the Rosebud, agency Sept. 30, 1889, and continued to rations upon the rolls received at that* time. He received orders at the close of the fiscal year of 1889 to take an ^numeration of the Indians. This wasEdone, by the assistance of employes of the agency, upon the 7th and 8th cf Jul®, the result showing 2,000 less In dians than were supposed to have been receiving rations, Be does not assume to account for' the large discrepancy, beyond stating, that many have died and others gone south to .the Indian Terri tory. Mr. Wright also, mentions the fact) that many heads pf families have Sweitiif Rations for More Persons thai!'were actually in^their, families. He repels the suggestion! that the rations excess of the number of' Indians have, been,' Sold and appropriated' .for thfe agent's 'private benefit. Other parties here who are familiar witfr the methods of ^distributing rations say that the chief cause of the discrepancy lies in the practice referred to by Agent Wright— that' of drawing extra rations. Red Cloty&iis cited as an instance. He ia said to d&w ten rations regularly at Pine Riqgei agency, while his family consists of pit three persons. The' 'practice is said to prevail quite generally, though whether .with the knowledge or.consqqt nt agent is not stated. POTATOES TO SELL. A Bigger Crop In the Northwest Than 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 iprice 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. WRECKING TRAINS COLLIDE. Serious Triple Accident on the Blaelc Hills and Fort Pierre Komi. DEADWOOD, S. D., Sept. 10.—The pas senger train over the Black Hills and 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. Sued the Missonri, Kansas aud Texas.

A Mr. Hiler died some months ago leaving a meh and 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 theeast 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 way 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 eli'ect in the trackman's shoulder. However, the train was stopped about 100 yards south of the obstruction. THEY FOUGHT FOR LOVE.
