Neglected Orders the Cause List of the Dead and the Injured. Puh-Ishcrs' rrpsBj Cleveland, Aug. 4. Neglected orders caused a wreck this afternoon on the Lake Shore Electric railway near Ver million, in which two persons were killed, one probably fatally injured and seven seriously injured. The westbound Toledo limited car, running at full speed, crashed head on into an eastbound regular car on a I curve, about 0(10 feet west of Vermil lion siding, the meeting point. Roth cars were crowded to the platforms. The Limited telescoped the regular car. William D. Moody, of Reach Park, the niotorman of the westbound limited, the man through whose care lessness the accident is said to have occurred, was killed. In one instant the two carloads of people were crushed into a mass of struggling, screaming human beings, crushed and bruised in the mass of twisted wreck age, scarcely a piece of which could be recognized as part of those of the ears. The Lake Shore Electric's attorney at Norwalk tonight blamed Moody for the wreck, claiming he disregarded the order to meet the other car on tho siiling. The dead are: Mr. Moody and Reese Milan, of Lima. The limited had on board forty hoys of the Y. M. C. A. at Lima and many of them were hurt.

The defense determined upon in the ease of Harry Kendall Thaw, charged with the mur der of Stanford White, involves no attack upon White's charncted or in vasion into the dead architect's pri vate life, further than that which touches the lives of the man who kill ed him and that of the man's wife. This positive announcement was made this afternoon to shut off scores of tenderloin habitues who have stories to tell whereevcr they will bring the most money regarding tho alleged epi sodes of White's career as a man a bout town. In the first place, Clifford W. Hart ridge, chief counsel for Thaw, realizes White's life. except that part of it which is entangled with the lives of Mr. and Mrs. Harrv Thaw, has no possible bearing on his client's case, and in the second place, he is minded, so far as possible, to keep the tender loin out of the trial. He knows there is scant chance of introducing evidence as to White's relations with women other than Eve ln Nesbit Thaw, and-he has invari- tably turned down purveyors of this I class of tales. Human Ingenuity iay plan and construct the elaborate conduit sys tem which is now being placed under ground in Richmond, by the Home Telephone Company, but after all, the execution of the gigantic task, a lower order of animals to complete together new and novel to Richmond. To get to the point quickly, the Home Telephone Comnanv will use j ferrets to string the cables through 'the underground ducts and the man ; ner in which this will be done is al- workinen will have to depend upon Work Well Under Way. 1 homas Swanner .assistant intendent. of construction of the Telephone Company, now has ly good start on the work of the conduits and he himself, laid the first duct of the "cluster" of twelve which will form the trunk line from the river west to 14th street. This was done last Wednesday. Work started midway of the first al ley north of Main streets between Cth and 7th streets. The trench av erages 53 inches in depth. The ducts are three Inches in diameter and are made of fibre, composed chief ly of paper. They are practically in destructible and have the advantage of lightness and a smooth interior sur face .which permits the cables. to be drawn through without injury. Twelve of these ducts are placed in the trench, laid in groups of four, one on top of the other and the whole set in concrete. The sections of the ducts are seven feet in length and connec tions are made by slipping one end of a section over another. Man holes are constructed midway of eacli block and are six feet in depth, 4V feet in width and six feet in length, thus giving plenty of room for the workmen. The cables that will pass through the ducts will carry from 100 to 400 wires. Branch ducts will be laid in intersecting alleys. Placing of Poles. At regular intervals along the route poles will be placed, and cables will he run from the conduit to the tops of these poles, the wires then branch ing out in various directions leading to the locations of phones. Several processes are used in stringing these ducts ,but according to Supt. Swan ner, the ferret method is the best and the quickest. The little animals which have" for their chief character istic, a willingness to invade small apertures, and which are able, be cause of their extreme thinness and sleekness ,to traverse very small pas sages ,can be used to good advantage in this particular sort of work. They will not be required to pull heavy cables after them, for this would Up impossible ,nor will they be required to even pull a rope through the ducts. The method of using the fer ret is novel. He will be hitched to a small "reel" mounted on wheels, the whole contrivance of a size which easily will pass through one of the three-inch ducts. On the reel will be wound strong string. Ferret will Scamper. The ferret will be introduced into one end of a duet, and without urg ing, he will break toward the feint spot of light a block distant, rattling the reel along after him, which will unwind the string, the end of which is held fast by a workman. Reach ing the opposite end of the duct, the ferret will be captured and the string pulled through, carrying with it a rope, and the rope will then be used to draw through the cable. Each duct of the twelve composing the con duit, will be threaded in this manner block by block. Superintendent Swanner figures it out that with no bad luck the work of laying the conduits will be completed before mid-winter.

"Say" said a man as he sauntered into a Main street drug store yester day, "do you take the Palladium?" "Why certainly; everybody takes it. Don't you?" "Yes, but that's not the point" replied the man, "what I want is to know if you will save me the piano coupons. I'm collecting for the Druids and I must have 'em." Well,' replied the druggist, "you are the fifth man in here today to get my supply -of coupons. The Knights of Pythias, Red Men, Eagles, Odd Fellows and Knights of Columbus have all sent walking delegates in to capture my daily Palladium coupons." INTEREST IS AROUSED.

PLANNED TO KILL A KING ANARCHIST UNDER ARREST Taken in Custody as He Was About to Set Sail from New York Grip Sacks Filled with Dynamite and Cartridges. DESIRE TO HELP THE REVOLUTION European Financiers Show Disposition to Assist the the Russian People. THINK CZAR'S END IS NEAR ARE READY THEREFORE. TO HASTEN THE INEVITABLE AND ALREADY IT IS REPORTED THEY HAVE MADE ADVANCES. Continued on Page Four. Publishers' Press Xew York, Aug 4. A grip sack loaded with dynamite and 42 calibre cartridges, constituted the baggage of Gracemo Tanalare, who had engaged passage on the Cretic, which sailed to day from Uoboken for Genoa. Tan alare was not allowed to sail and the Hoboken police in whose custody he Is, are of the opinion that he is an an archist who contemplated the assas sination of the King of Italy or some other Puropean sovereign. Because of the close scru'iny kept on the anarchists in the continent these days, explosives are hard to ob tain, but in this country any one may buy dynamite if he has the price. Tan alare has refused to tell where he bought the explosives and has sprung so many contradictory stories that the suspicion of his anarchistic inten tion is continually strengthened. There is a lot of mystery about the case, but from the circumstances un der which tiie bag was found it is be lieved that Tanalare was simply act ing as an agent for a band of revolu tionists. It is thought that the bag was loaded with the dynamite car tridges and left at a designated spot to be picked up by Tanalare and tak en aboard the ship. Publishers' 1'rcfs London, Aug. 4. Reynolds News paper, in a sensational article this morning stated that several of the greatest European financiers, heavily interested in Russian securities, are secretly offering to furnish money with which to place the Russian revo lutionary movement upon u business footing. According to the newspaper's source of information these bankers with the trustworthy information at hand, gleaned by their agents in all the principal towns of Russia, havo reached the belief that the regime of the Czar is all but ended and that" the sooner the end conies, the better it will bo for Russia. The bankers, having reached this conclusion, are therefore ready to hasten the inevitable. A cogent rea son which is said to actuate the finan ciers in their advances to the revolu tionists, is according to Reynolds, tho fear that the revolutionists when they come into power will he likely to repudiate the Russian obligations contracted by the Czar. To insure the payment of the Russian loans the bankers want to become the friends of the revolutionists now.

Mrs. Laura Belle Morrow, 28 years of age, three-quarters Cherokee In dian, one-quarter white, w'alked into Richmond yesterday pushing a baby huggy containing a baby one year and five months old. Mrs. Morrow claims that she came from East St. Louis, III., walking all the way, in- a little over .five weeks. She was "seen on the street by Mrs .Charles Kidwell, re siding at 627 North Mh street, whoso sympathies were aroused by the pitia ble condition of the woman and who took her to the Kidwell home, where she was given food and rest for the night. This morning an effort will be made at Police Headquarters to obtain transportatoin for Mrs. Morrow to Dayton, where she thinks that she will find her husband, who left his home unexpectedly. Mrs. Morrow told the ; following story to the Palladium: Woman Tells Her Story. "About six weeks ago my husband tame to me and hugged and kissed m vnd the baby, saying that if he did vot come back from work that I need not worry concerning his where abouts. That was the last time I saw ! him. i "He has a twin-sister of whom he is very fond. He has started out 'many times and visited her. I think ; she lives in Dayton. Well. I thought i that Dayton would be about where he j was and so I started out. I didn't ! have any money, and taking my baby jin a basket on my arm, I took to the I National Road. I "At Germantown. 111., a man saw me ! and was kind enough to give me an old baby carriage. On the road I met j with few experiences other than to find that there is very little hospitality jin the world for a person who hasn't any money. i "I don't bear my man any ill will, but I just want to know where he is. j "My husband is an Irishman, is l gocKl natured and 55 years old. Some older than me, you see. We didn't have any trouble he just got out and later I did the same. I have not heard anything of him, but am certain to find him in Dayton." Tired from Long Journey. The heat and extremely hard wear and tear of her journey have told on Mrs. Morrow, who says that she had been in a hospital for several months before she begun her walk. Her baby is a bouncing youngster with a con tented disposition, never raising a wail at the hard bumps which come his way on the long tramp.
