S.ys the Santa Fe Has Violated th-e Same Law It Put in Operation Against A. R. U. Strikers. New York, A17. 10. People interest ed in Atchison gave greater credence to clay to tin? report that President Reinhart conteuif la'.ed resigning. As was stated previous to the recent exposures he would not resign under fire, but wouid wait until he 1 uliy explained his position. Hid health has not U-en good of late, and his friends acknowledge that h is worn out. Jt was' said today that Mr. Heinhart hhd even cone go far as to consider the terms i.-i which he would express his resignation. Among tankers and brokers the main question was whether a cLauga in the rcorganiz ati.m-plaa would be found nec essary ia view o: recent disclosures. ,s The greatest eensatiou in the whole affair was the letter written and seut by Theodore V. Meyers, chairman of the Atchison Protective Reor ganization committer, to Presi di'ut King of the Union Trust company, trustees of the iirt mortgage of the Atchison, Toj eka Santa Fe railroad company . pr...per, requesting! he remo val of Messrs. Heinhart and McCook, re ceivers, on the i.lieged ground that they are irrespou-il le a::d until to hold the position or to manage the business of the great ro ad. President King made a brief reply to Chairman .Meters, acknowledging the receipt of the letter. Both letters were typewritten and given out for publica tion. As Soon ; s this came to the knowl edge of Col. McCook ho informed all newspapers and news agencies that the letter was libelous and that if published the publishers or parties causing its publication wouid be held responsible in court. A member of the Meyers cum ruitt:o stated that that committee in teuded to force Reinhart out of the presidency and the receivers uip. It was also reported 'his afternoon that Presi dent Male of ti e Atlantic Trust compa ny, who is a member of the Protective or Meyers committee, has stated that he did not approve of the letter sent to President King in reference to the re in val of the receivers. Mr. Male said: I was not present at the meeting and knew uothiug of the letter. I had not eeen it, but I have not expressed any in tention of withdrawing from the Meyers 'committee, as has teen reported. Had I known of the meeting and the letter I do not think I would have approved of it at this time." It is clearly understood that even should President Reinhart resign the presidency of the Atch'non system it would not in the least affect his future status as receiver far more important position now th j, . -t'i, pre-iidency. The' aetiou of t .a . i.zation committee could affoct "i- position as the chief of ficer of the '".oiupany, but it could not touch him as leceiver. It will necessi tate legal procedure to divest him of his powers as receiver, and this must come through the bondholders' protest and the establishment of allegations agaiust his fitness for so responsible a position. Mr. Thomas" Raring of the London house of Bering Bros, has said nothing since he has leeu here. This is perhaps easily understood, as lie and his interests have been friendly to Mr. Reinhart, and are largely responsible for his incumbency of the presidential ciiair. Mr. Baring, it is said, feels Keenly the reflection made by the investigation of the reorganiza tion committee, that the directors are in a measure responsible for any misman agement and the misleading accounts of the road. In spite of the warning issued bv Col. McCook. the Herald publishes the -letter written by TLeod-jre Myers, chairman of the reorganization committee. It is as follows with one animadversion ex purged: In ti e lighr, of recent developments we are impel ed out of a sense of dutv to ourselves arid others whom we rep resent as the Atchison Protective Re organization committee, elected by the fctockholderv. of the Atchison, Topeka & banta Fe Raiiroad company, to request youtj petition the court for the removal NIGHT EDITION. TOPEKA, KANSAS. FRIDAY of Mr. Joseph W. Reinhart and Mr. J. J. McCook as receivers of feaid company. Wheti these parties were selected for this great trust it was generally believed that both, one as president of the com pany and the other as its chief legal ad viser and a director of long standing, had been most loyal and true to our in terests. We assume that you were large ly influenced by this consideration in yielding to their appointment. At the time foreclosure proceedings were begun, the stockholders were not apprehensive of any very serious financial entangle ments. This feeling of confidence on their part was due in a large measure to the report made by the management for the fiscal year ending June '6 1SJ3, which discloses a net surplus of $1,753, GotJ.9d, and was subsequently strengthen ed by a statement made to us December 23, 1693, over Mr. Reinhart' s own signa ture, wherein he assures us that the en tire floating debt of the company did not then exceed $(5,300,000, thi.t the treasury held securities more than sufficient to pay the same, and that the company's embarrassment was only temporary. To quote his own words, "The Atchison sys tem as a whole, including the St. Louis & Sau Francisco railway aud ait other aux iliary lines (comprising 9.b45 miles of railroad), is amply able, even under the present adverse conditions, to earn a safe balance above its iixed charges." The latter, showing was deemed most satisfactory and as not in the least jeopardizing the interests of the stock holders. Subsequent events have shown, however, that grossly irregular methods had apparently been employed ia the keeping of the company's accounts aud that its actual financial condition had been misrepresented, in fact what ap pears to hate been a course of systema: ic deception has been pursued, aud the rec ords have been so artfully manipulated as to present a surplus, when, in truth, a deliciency seems to have existed. The large favorable balances heretofore ex hibited now appear to resolve themselves into a myth, and we fear that the com pany's affairs may be such as to threaten ! the gravest consequences. If the res- ponsib.lity for all this is shared by -Messrs. Reinhart and McLook their re tention as receivers under the circum- 1 stances wouid, in onr opinion, operate us J a menace to the interests we represent. I The precise nature and extent of the I abuses we have not had the opportunity i to ascertain." There ought to be absolutely j no secrecy ia the business a id affairs of ! this company, and especially so far as the stockholders are c incerned. It is j needless to say that our efforts have been very much obstructed by this action. In 1 our opinion tho men charged with the duty aud responsibility 01 controlling ! this great property should be free from ; every suspicion of wrong doing and be j entirely disconnected with the company's paat management. We are satisfied that it is your aim to execute the trust confided to you in all j its integrity aud to ileal justly toward all ! interests, and we thoreforV appeal to yo.i j to take such action as will lead to the re ! moval of Messrs. Reinhart and McCook ! as receivers, and the substitution of other I persons in their place who will be dis i posed to conserve our interests, and in 'whose impartiality and fullness we can ! repose implicit faith and confidence, i Hoping for a favorable reply we are re- spectfully, Thelidjke W. Mvkks, j Chairman Atchison Protective Reorgani j zatioii committee. i The coin inittciVs repent and Mr. Rein ! hart's reply appear on the second page. : The affairs of the Atchison, Topeka fc S mta Fe railway are getting a pretty j good airing. It is the !irt they h;.ve had , since the fctrong management w as ousted j aud the company reorganized. Tho Rein j hart management has not vet lak ;n aci 1 vantage of a chance to piwve. that, it ia j all it has claimed to be. j ihe World announces Mr. Reinhart j ready to resign the presidency and te i ceivership as soon as he has made his j explanation to the general reorganiza- tion committee regarding the charges S that the company is seven million dol i lars short. The Santa Fe officers turned j up their noses at this rej ort when Mr. Little lirst made it, but now it has dovei j oped into a pretty large sized scandal re : fleeting on the management of the c jni i pauy since Mr. R.finhart became presi- dent. ITS LOCAL KFFIXTS. Proipcotlve Ctine iu lite Sunta. Fe Man agement lit Topeka. The trouble the Santa Fe receivers Reinhart and J.eb'ouk have gotten into has started the local, gossips to talking about the final outcome of the Santa Fe trouble. It is generally conceded that receivers Reinhart and McCook will not be longer connected with the company and every body hero who claims to kuow anything about the affair says they will resign. It is said by a man wiu says' he saw the dispatch before he left lor New ! York yesterday. Receiver Wilson I received a telegram from Geo. J R. Peck informing hiin that j no matter what the outcome of the ! trouble is, he will still be retained as one ! oi' the leceivers, bora the controlling fac- tious being satislied with his appoint ! oicut. j The interpretation of this is that no ' matter how tha present trouble is set i tied, Geo. R Peck will still bo the big j man of the Santa Fa management. The continuation of this story is, that ; as Mr. Peck stands godfather to J. J. i Frey, tiie present general manager, and ! as Mr. Peck ia responsible for Mr. Prey's beiug in his present position, Mr. Frey j wil continue tj be general manager. I Another story is that the Aldeu Spear j faction of the Santa Fe management at I Boston is very much dLs itisried with the j present operating management of the I system aud they propose to have a change made all around. It is said that the Aiden Spear faction propose to have Mr. A. A. Robinson put into Mr. Reinhart's position as pres dent with headquarters at TopeKa, and will then bring the former general superin tendent, II. li. Xic&enson, back to suc ceed Mr. Frey as general manager. This all could happen aud Mr.-Peck still le retained as general solicitor aud I Mr. Wilson as one of the receivers. DEIli MAKE CO MM EXT.

Debs, U., saidiu relation to the report of the Atchison reorganiza tion committee: "Here we have proof which ia incon trovertible that the Santa Fe railroad ha stolen $ 7,00,000 from the people in vio lation of the interstate commerce law. I want to know why the officials of that corporation are not prosecuted? I want to serve notice on the officials who are prosecuting the railroad men for going on strike that the Santa Fe has systematically vio lated that law. I insist that it ia their duty to prosecute the other violators of the law. I am for law and order and I insist that that the law shall be enforced without respect to persons. UI was confronted in the United States court by lawyers from the Santa Fe who were there to try to send me to the peni tentiary. Turn about is fair play. L'n- less the laws are enforced against rich I and poor alike I should like to know how I the people can be expected to respect I the law. If I have violated the inter i state commerce law I am willing to pay ; the penalty, but I insist that the law be ! enforced against all who have violated j it.

"BED-BUGS AND MATCHES' Are the Causes A-l(fneil For TIil Morn inj4 Fire. Gasoline as a means of exterminating bed-bugs may have the desired effect, but it is extremely hazardous. Ld Burdge tried it this morning and Chief Wii inarth estimates that $400 will cover the damage. He took a can of gasoline up stairs at his house at 72 Mouroe street, and began sprinkling it around the edges of the carpet and iu the corners of the room. It caught afire probably from stepping on a parlor-match, and in an instant the whole room was so full of lira that Mr. Burdge made his exit with dirh"culi3'. The alarm was turned iu from box 52 (j and the lire was extinguished. After Chief Wilmartb concluded the tire was about out it was discovered the lire was still raging in the space between the walls. '1 he gasoline had leaked under the floor aud the lire had followed it. It is believed that the insurance on the house will fully cover the if 400 damage. These bed bugs appear to be lire bugs should be ad ded to the list of fire cause, wnich embraces incendiaries, bad toys chiidren-playing-with -lire, gasoline stove lamps, mice and matches. During the lire 4he horses attached to the hoso wagon from station IN'o. 2 ran away, and turning west on Seventh street dashed past Kansas avenue to the station where they turned into an alley and upet against a fence. The animals would have run into the open doors had they not been headed oil. The hose-wagon, which is one of the fiuest pieces of apparatus in the department, was brokeu iu two places, and was also badly scratched. Why the horses should have run away is nuknown. The last time Captain Robinson saw them two men were holding them. It is customary for one of the spectators to sit in the driver's seat and hold them. TOPEKA TORRID.

Dreadful Scenes at the Rock Island Wreck Last Night. Terror Stricken People Refused to Leave Burning Cars. ONLY A FEW DONES. Cars and People Were Licked Up by the Flames. The Number of Killed Will Probably R?ach Twelve. LixcoLN. Neb., Aug. 10. Train No. 8 oa the Rock Island which was wrecked last night on the high trestle over the Union Pacific tracks, is an accommoda tion called "Fort Worth accommodation" and is due to arrive here at 9:40 p. m. Last night it wa9 about ten minutes lata and was initking up time when it struck the trestle that crosses Salt creek, about four miles from the city and two miles from the penitentiary. When it struck the trestle, thw rails immediately spread and the engine drawing the two cars after it, went thumping along over the cross ties for about fifty feet and then with a crash, it fell forty feet to the bed of the creek -below. The engine burst, and glowing coals spieading, ignited he wooden supports aud the coaches behind it, aud in a few moments the bridge, dry as tinder from its long exposure to the sun, was one mass of flamos. The coals falling upon the coacl'e3 lying in the ditches, set them afire, and five miuntes after the lirst warning, the entire muss of cars -vitU their load of human freight below,, was one mass of Haines. It was an awful sight. The flames mounted high in the heavens, coloring the entire toutheru sky a brilliant car mine, while the moonbeams fell upon the glowing mass below, from which mortal shriess of agony and pain were heard to issue. Willing hands were there te help, but little could be done. Fliinuil HvtUl All In. The engine had fallen lirst, then the combination car of sm iker. and express coach fell, partially upon that, and the rear coach falling behind it telescoped that car, thus pinioning those unfortu nates who were in the smoker so that it was impossible to save them or for them to escape. Harry Foote, the brakeman who did such efficient worc at the wreck, says he is positive that there were at least ten men iu the smoker, six of whom he can describe. In addition to the crew he mentions a man whose name he does not kuow, employed by an elevator builder named Counselman, at Narka. 1 here were also several passen gers who got on at Jansen. and two got on at Pawnee City. Fi o o says that when he took out Fred Seoit, the bag gageman, who was crying "Harry, Harry, hurry for Christ's sake." he heard a faint groan from the smoker, aud again another when the flames reached it, but that was all. Probably all were mercifully crushed to death, for the car was smashed al most perfectly flat. One man was found lying outside the smoker. He was probably n the-platform when the train went ovtt. He was seriously, but not fatally injured, and is now at the Ojitll house. The pas sengers rescued from the chair car were paralyzed with fright and could only lie on the bank and moan, rendering no as sistance to the work of tho rescuers. One family of Russians, consisting of a man, wife and child, was so completely panic stricken that, like horses in a lire, they could not be induced to leave the car and had to be carried out Only 1 Frw irackeiid Hone. The wrecking crew so far has dts- covered only a few blackened bones and fraerments of burned tlesh. A.-S. Bell, the Lincoln traveling man. was not killed as lirst reported, but ter ribly injured in ternally. He was taken to his home at bll North sixteenth street. Among the thirteen passengers in the car were Mrs. Fritz and sister-in-law, who were badly shaken up. J. E. Fritz, a Lincoln traveling man, had three ribs broken, and is a mass of cuts and bruises but it is thought he will recover. J. R. Brinker, a Denver traveling man was supposed to have been killed but he turned up this morning, having missed the train at Beatrice. Col. C. J. Bills, treasnrer of the Na tional Guard association of the United States, was one of the fortunate passen gers and his story is as follows: "Jay McDowell and myself were seated in the middle of the car aud as we dis covered that the train was likely to go over the trestle, McDowell started down the aisle. I yelled to him to sit down and the next instant the crash came. The engine went overboard first and the smoker oa top of that, and the rear coach iu which wo were seated jammed down on theother. The car was crowded with passengers and we. w-ere forced along the backs of seats in front of U3, and all but McDowell and myself were horribly mangled. A3 soon as possible, we climbed through a window and in fifteen minutes succeeded in extricating nine persons who were jammed in the debris. Hear ing the shrieks aud cries for help on all sides, I left Mc Dowell and ran three miles across the country to the penitentiary without making a stop. I had Warden Beemer telephone the police department, aud they responded promptly and nobly with the patrol carriages and physicians." X Chines For E.cape. Col. Bell says that two men in the front of the chair car were killed and burned, and that he had hold of one, trying to get him out, but could not manage it. He thinks it would be impossible for a single man ' to nav car. I : 1 the cha to ha-.-e escaped from the smoking fell foremost on the engine aud chair car wiiicu jonoweu naiieuea 10, 1891. it. E. II.

For the last week the relief committee lias found it up-hill work to supply 52,000 men who applied every day for aid, and I nearly everv dav mauv hundreds have been turned away empty handed. One poor woman, who looked worn and faded, came twice during one daj-, carrying her baby on 0110 arm and lugging another child by the hand. She said that all she wanted was a small piece of the beef which was being distributed, but she was compelled to go away without it. A considerablo number of men applied for fuel and kerosene oil, " but there was absolutely none to give out. A large proportion of the families in the poorer parts of Pull man are foiced to go wholly without lights during the evening and grope their way to bed as best they may. In some cases the fuel is all gone and whole families are beginning to subsist on cold or raw food unless they are for tunate enough to be able to use a neigh bor's stove soma time during the day. Most of the sufferiug is, of course, among the residents of the tenement blocks along Fulton street, but the higher grade of workmen who live in better houses are also suffering to some extent. The unusual spectacle is presented of men and women suffering for food in rooms which better times had furnished I with carpets, upholstered chairs and in some cases an organ or a piano.
