THEIR LONDON AGENT

Ilonoe the Fnllnre.
Nbw York, Sept. 5. Th UraU
til's morning publishes a story to the
effect that ihe fallnte of Sawyer. Wal
lace fc Co. was probably due to the
treacliory of Mr. h. W. Sawyer, the
Ijndon agent of the firm. This gen
tleman Is represenled to have had a
fascination for speculation so much so
tha tho firm had from lime to lime
remonstrated with him. In an attempt
to cornor Ihe pork market a year ago,
Mr. (Sawyer Is si(l to have utterly dis
regarded Ihe New York house and to
have sent his enormous orders to the
CI Icago representative of the firm.
Heavy orders drawn on the New York
house In settlement of maturing con
tracts startled tho firm Into realising
that, through their agent, they owned
nearly the entire visible supply of pork
In the country at such figures as made
It Impossible to unload at other than a
severe loss. Mr. Sawyer disregarded
orders to stop his transactions and con
tinued buying pork, through London,
whllo It was bolng disposed of In New
York nt a heavy loss. In attemnttne to
recover themselves, Sawyer, Wallace
& Co. lost everything. In regard to
tho suicide of the llerlln agent, tho
Herahl'B narrative says that It Is almost
a certainty that the man had sent a
number of false contracts for grain lo
the London house and had embezzled
tho amount of guarantee on a number
of genuine ones.
London, Sept. C Mr. Luclon W.
Sawyer, the London agent of tho Now
York firm of Sawyer, Wallace & Co.,
?encrnl commission merchants, who
nllcil yesterday, In an Interview with a
United Press reporter to-day said: "Tho
falluro surprises mo equally with others.
It Is true that large losses "resulted from
homo and foreign business conducted
through the London agency, but there
Is not a word of truth In tho statement
that my private speculations precipita
ted tho downfall of the firm."
The falluro has caused much excite
ment in London.

Is one man In each 10.000 of tho Amer

Hon that tho Secretary of tho Treasury
for tho last twontyslx years heara to
the finances of the country, and espe
cially with his connection with the
Treasury, sti b treasuries, the national
btnk dtslgnated depositories, and the
bulls and bears In New York and other
I will start with his relation hereto
fore with the first national bank of
America, situated on the corner of Wall
street and llroadway. New York, com
monly known as Fort Shorman. and In
concluding with this the whole homo
geneous participation of the relation of
the Secretary will be seen.
It is a fact that during the four years
that Senator Sherman was Secretarv of
the Treasury that this bank would'not
teceUe any money from private parties
or deposit nor open aa account with a
depositor, from the tact that it held oa
deposit, as shown by the late Senator
liecKS senate resolution, tens or mil
lions of public money continuously for
the transaction of its business. This
being; so, it Is now only necessary to
show what kind of budneea the bank
transacted and the relation of the Sec
retary of the Treasury therewith.
The fiscal agents of the bank were
and are members of the Stock and other
exchangee. Brokers la bonds aad
stocks and other securities, bulls aad
bears, deposit with the bank United
States bonds or other bonds as valid
sufficient to stand double the margin or
rise and fall In one, two, three, four,
five, ten or more thousand shares of
railroad or other stocks. The collateral
of course is not worth more than 4
per cent, of the stock to be purchased.
Alttr the deposit is made oae of the
fitcal agents of the bank is directed by
the depositor to purchase five, six or
tea ibousaad shares, as the c we may be,
of such anil such stock at 13 ui. of to-day
and lo bold it up until 13 in. of the day
two weeks following. This stock is pur
chased with the publte money awl tke
stock aad margin bonds are aeld by Ike
bank w futurity. Wken tke hour of
sale arrives the other fiscal agent of
the bank sells the stock, hence the baak

'What can I have to say," exclaimed
Mrs. Leslie. "I know nothing further

New Yonu, Sept. G.-On Sunday,
August SI, the most awful cyclono that
ever ship rode through In safety struck
the State Line steamer State of Indiana,
which arrived at this port from Glas

her to the title of record breaking la

When the first blast came the State of

CAUSING A GREAT ORAL OF DIS
CUSSION ON THE HILL.
TO KEEP IT OUT OF THE "RECORD."
Senator Qaay, Finding Sympathy,
Has Recovered His Nervs,
WAS THE SPEECH PREMEDITATED?
An Alleged OeBspiraoy Among Re-
publiwn Leaders Which
Kennedy's kick at the Senate and
furious arraignment of Senator Quay
remains an exciting topic of discussion.
As slated yesterday, the Pennsylvania
Republican delegation In the House,
headed by Mr. O'Neill, dean of the
delegation and Father of the House,
has prepared n resolution lo expunge
Mr. Kennedy's speech whenever It shall
apptar In the UttorA.
Singularly enough a Democratic
member, Mr. Charles J. lloatncr of
Louisiana, has prepared a resolution to
expel Mr. Kennedy whenever his speech
Clause 2, section G, of Article I. of
tho Constitution, provides: "Each House
may determine the Utiles of Its Proceed
ings, punish Its Members for disor
derly Behavior, and, with the Concur
rence ot two-thirds, expel n Member."
It Is always a dllllcult matter to ob
tain n two-thirds vote In cither house
to expel a member or to convict an olll
clal. Thus many a promising Impeach
ment by the House has fafiotl In the
Senate because of failures to secure the
requited Constitutional two-thirds vote.
Senator Quay In the meantime has re
covered his nerve. Yesterday he was
rattled. To day he Is severe. A night's
rest and the fact that he has the svm
pnlhy of all who believe In preserving a
ui cent decorum In debate and In main
taining a pioper dignity on the put
of lach IIouw ami Its mem
bers to the co-ordinate branch
and lis members had a sxith
lug clfect. They argue that If
such harangues as that of Kennedy
were peimltted, the relations between
the two houses would soon become so
strained that it would be well-nigh Im
possible to transact the public business.
Jealousy always exists between
the two houses, ami if the
license of abuse In which
Mr. Kennedy Indulged were counte
nanced the situation would speedily
become Intolerable and the public
business be seilously, iierbajM danger
ously, obstructed and delayed.
Whether a conspiracy existed on the
pait of Mr. Kennedy and other llepub
llcau Ilepiesentatlve. higher and more
potent in the party councils than he. is
doubtful. This story Involves Speaker
Iteed, Speaker pro ttmitor Burrows and
Mr. Burrows denies the atorr so far
at he is concerned, and discredits It as
to the others.
Mr. Burrows said be did not call Mr.
Kennedy to order, because there was no
precedent for so doing. Yet the rules
say: "If any member, In speaking or
otherwise, transgress the rules of the
House, the Speaker shall, or any mem
ber may, call him to order."
If there be no precedent for the
Speaker's acting under this rule, it
would seem to be proper to make one.
Mr. Burrows missed an opportunity
yesterday. He sustained points of order
against Mr. Cummings proceeding
with bis bogus question of per
sonal privilege, but ke failed to
enforce hU decision. Mr. Burrows
would have earned tke gratitude of

and on the direct line of the San Carlos

Within twenty four hours the same

warning of the night before had been
timely, but not sulllclent. Those that

against the mountain side did not havo

As a matter of fact, what seems at

a most substantial basis of truth, and a
number of people who were on the
train on the night preceding the acci

they saw the ghostly procession. Noth

Conductor Itettew, who was on both

Kdlon of train No. 13, the Adirondack

on the Central-Hudson Itallroad, was
wrecked at n point about three miles
below Gronbtish, between midnight ami
1 a. in. Six sleepers were wrecked,
but, miraculous as it aeeins, no one was
killed. The Injured list will foot up
about seven, the most seriously Injured
being Mrs. Atkinson of Trenton, X. Y..
who was badly Injured about the Ixick:
Miss Gatlhan of Brooklyn, head badly
cut, ami Trainman Saultpaugh, back
wrenched. The others have Incks and

A single rail placed crosswise on the
track In front of the train resulted In
the disaster. Six coaches were turned
bottom side up ou the bottom of a 15
foot ditch, and they were wrenched
beyond repair. The otllcers of the road,
physicians and other persons left on a
special tialn at a !M a. in. for the scene
of the wreck. Of the eight sleepers
comprising the train but two were left
on the track. The others were either
on the embankment or lying across the
rails. Traftlc was at a standstill and no
train was moving after midnight. The

The car turned a complete tomertault
and settled In the bottom of the ditch
bottom up. He and trainman Saul
tpauch crawled out the window, and
after procuring a light released Mrs.
Atkinson, who was the only passenger
In the car. The woman was borne to
the tear ami placed in a sleeping com
paitmcnt la one of the rear cats. All
of the other passengers were taken out
through the windows of the partly
wiecked cars ami assisted to the rear,
whero they were made comfortable.
Among the sixty passengers were a
number of New Yoikere and nearly
half the total were women. Nearly all
were asleep In their berths and knew
nothing until they felt themselves
dashed from their bunks and opened
tbelr eyes to Ami themselves lying acroas
other passengers. Improvised bunk
in the relief train were made for the In
jured by three Albany physicians and
their wants were tendeily administered.
Fortunately none of the car took tire
or the loss of life would have been
great. Most of the passengers got off
at Albany and remained at the hotels
for awhile to collect their scattered
tenses. All were able to proceed on,
their journey except Mrs. Atkinson,
who was taken to the city hospital oa
