I10CK ISLAF3IJ WRECK The Texas Expn-ss Jurap3 an Overhead Bvidze. Hlght People Are Killed and Fifu'en Injured. THE CARS BURNED. Tho Fish Plates Had Been Re moved by Wreckers. Lincoln, Neb., Am?. 10. Ono of the worst railroad wrecks ever re cor led in this section occurred shortly after 10 o'clock last evening. when tli2 Okla homa and Texas Rock Island express, astboun I, due in Omaha at 7 a. m., jumped the overhead bridge over tho Union Pac Cc. five miles south of Lincoln. Eig-ht people are known to he killed and fifteen injured. The train consisted of an engine, tender, baggaga, savikinjf car and coach. The engine and eomb'nation car went over the bridge, leaving tlio ooach suspended on tha trestle. Two pasengrers and brakemaa of the end coach were not injured. They man aged to release two others. The known killed ar: Tkmduetor C. P. Standard, Engineer Ike Dpevr, Fireman, camp nnkno-.vn. Tiiree travelling mta and two far mers, names unknown, were also killed. The englnaer and fireman are buried under the engine. Others are supposed to nave been burned to death. The injured are: F. O. Scott, expressman: C. D. Sherrer, mail clerk; O. S. Dell of Lincoln, traveling man. About twelve o.hers are in jured whose names are not known. In response to a telephone mes ags from the state prison in the vicinity of the wreck a relief expedition of phvsic'ans police and tho fire dj-pirt-ment went to the scene and rendered all the assistance possible. All tho car wrro burned. Henry C. Foot, of Cc-jnc'.l I-'uffs. the fcrakeman. was the only one of the crew who escaped unhurt. His story, anil that of other? who etirrive, indicates t'nit the wreck was due to the work of tra il wreckers, an 1 Walter Seidell, who lives near the crossing- and was the Crt one on the scene, states a fishplate an 1 the bar with which it had oeen wrenched loose were found near the trestle aft ?r the wree'e. No. 8 was due in Lincoln nt 10:10 andwns poundiiif ale n -f at a lively fait when the tre-tlj was reached. There were about fifteen passengers In the chair car, all of whom Were got out more or less injured. In the smoker there were ten or twelve, and it is not t'loagbt a sincrle one escaped. When the engine struck the broken rail she ju nned tha trac'.c and boun linsr alon-j- over the ties for a hundred feet, rollud to one side and pi linked down oi th3 Union Pac tie tracks batow, followed by tha other three cars. The bvakiman tells this story: "I knew the Rouble was in the smoker and rushed forw-rl to sea what I could do when the plrnge came. It was a sickening sig-ht. "The oar was a sr apelass mass of broken pieces and wrec-ae an 1 I could see the crushed an I manjled bodies of the passengers insid;;. "IJy th's time help had arrived and we g-ot out thj baggageman and mail man." The baggageman rai terribly in jured. He was squeezed btween broken timbers and besrored piteouly for some one to save him from the Barnes which were rapidly eating their way towards him. His rj-icures worked frantically with saws and axes, while the hot breath of tha approaching flames scorched the r hands and faces. When released the Gara.-s were with 11 thirteen inches of the man's heal. The engineer and fireman were found crushed under the engine, which was tnrne 1 uns.de down. In the middle of the excitement the brakeman had pre once of mind enough to send men out to fla? a freight train following on the l.olc island and another approaching1 oa the linriington & Missouri r ver. He also sent to tha penitentiary for assistance and fro n tlurs the fire de partment was notified. The chemical enrnie was soon on the ground, but could do very littls, and every stick of both train and bridge was soon reduced to a heap of smoking ru ns,. The trestl j where the wreck oc curred is about two miles south of the penitentiary, or five miles frorn the oity. It was about 303 feet ion? and sixtv feet high, and carried the Rock Island track over both the Hurl nsrton and Missouri River and Union Pacific. PACIFIC 11AILH0AD DEBT. lb) Rem?

I resident lle'nhart'n ITeply. President Reinhart in his reply de clares the earnings of the Atchison system for th. p-r.oJ namd amount to about $180,000,030 and then poes on to point out the errors into which he claims Little has fallen. He says: ' I find SI.10j.003 of earnings of tho Atch s n system de lucted from its income account under the agreement w.th the St. Louis and San Francisco ra.lway company in 1337, as shown in the annual reports and proper y cred ite I to the St. Lo lis and San Kran c:sco railway company, is owned hy th : Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe rail way companv. In other words Mr. Little ig-nores $1,103,000 of actual earnings of the Atchison railroa I and g-ives them no place in ii statem -nt of the earnings of the sy tern. I also find fiat Mr. Little refuses to include a balance of S457.83U (United States currency) subsidy due from the Mexi can g-ovemraent to the Sonnra railway (one of the Atchison auxiliary corn pan es). which i-i an undisputed c-aim recofi-nized by the Mexican g-overn-nienL i find a'so an item of S4."0.000, cov erin r earning-s on f reig-ht on throuprh biil.n? for the last week in each month, has been ig-nored by Mr. Little, notwit.istan Jing- the fact that such item was explained to him. 1 further fin I that Mr. Little has e'ther over looked or refused to recognize S-,332,-00 ) of interest earned from January 1, lS'JO, to December 23. lSa3, on advances made by the Atchison and San Fran cisco companies to the Atlantic and Pacific companv. wh.ch, vviLh the in terest so earned, is an asset of these two companies and wtiich, in adjust ment of the accounts of the three companies named, must ba treated as un asset of the Atchison and San Fran cisco companies, belonging- to their in come liccount. S:iil further do I. find Mr. Little has not included about $1,500,000 of profit earnel by the company upon its investment in terminal propert es. The items of S1.IU2.1 10 and 81".2.'.)51, ma'tinrr an a-gresrate of $1,765,031, which Mr Little a1 so refers to. were proper debits to the franchise and property accounts, for the reason they represent expenditures made out of the revenues of the reorg-nniz'-d company subsequent to October 1, ISS'3, but which apnlied to the operations of the propertv prior to the date of re organization, and should have been cared for under fortv-two mortg-apes represented under the old company. This asset was used to offset charn-es which affected the other side of the income account, and as Mr. Little himself has stated in his report, 'In the end the effect on the income account will be precisely the same. "The items I have mentioned more than cover the alleg-ed over statement of income for the period of Mr. L t tle's examination by about i?."i00.O33. Mr. Little states that on June 30, IS!'.', the companv did not have on h in 1 the amount of cash shown by the boo ts. I tle-dre ta state mo-t em phatically that on the data referred to the company actually h d on hand, in cash and cash items, the amount, stated in its report on that date." rihe reorganization committee. after th read ng- of Presid nt Reinhart's report, ndorted a re olution referring the Little and Reinhart statements to a committee composed of R S. Hayes, chairman of the g-eneral reorganiza- . tion comm.tte?; Robert l iem n? of the London comrn'ttee, and Mr. Lu den. representing Hops fc Co., of Am sterdam, with instructions to report to the full comm tt;e what further act on should be taken in the prem ises. Two members of the reorganization committee, who desired to withhold their names from publication, statod to a r porter that the seneral opinion was that I'r -si lent Reinhart ha 1 not expla:ned satisfactorily the charg-da made bv L:ttle.

The Demo crat tariff conference had expected to be abla to announce an agreement yesterday. Instead of reaching- any definite conclusion, tha day closed with the bill in quite as uncertain a state as ever before in its history, with the situation in no wisj improved, the feeling between the frlenls of the senate and housa bills intensified, in stead of allayed, and with no one pre pared to say what the outcome would be or when the end would be reached. When the senate conferrees pre pared to go on with the bill upon the ba&is of 40 cants per ton on caul and free iron orj the house conferrees an nounced their unwillingness to assent to this arrangement, and stated that i they would insist upon a reversal of ' these terms with coal free and iron ore dutiable if either was to be, as they understood that they were to have a choice between the two. The avowal of this position produced im- mediate confusion and led to an ex change of remarks which were not altogether pol te. The senate con ferrees thereupon decided to report the state of alfairs to the conservative ' senators and when the conferrees ad journed, called Senators Gorman, LJr ce, Smith and Murphy into con sultation. The whole situation was outl.ned to them. They were not only made acquaint ed with the demand of taa houe con ferrees for free coal, but were also given to understand other material conce sions would be expicted by the house conferrees alon-- the entire line of the bill, including woolens, cottons, metals, glas ana earthen ware. They decided upon an emphatic negative in replv to these proposi tions, sayin? if the bo iy of 'the b 11 was not preserved virtually as it passed the senate the rep rt of the conference, when made, wouid not be accepted by the senate. Senator Rriee proposed an innovation in the shape of a prop3itioa that the housa conferrees be given an opportunity to secure free sujrar. His idea, in detail, was that the senate conf. rrces should volunteer to recede ent rely from the senate su?ar schedule, leaving both raw and refined su?ar on the free list, as provided in the hous? bill, and that the senate bill should be otherwise accepted virtually in its present shapj with both coal and iron on the dutia ble list at the rate of 40 cects per ton. In urging this upon the conference he sa'd it would necessarily pro luce oao of tiiree results. If it should be de clined by thd hou iP conferrees it would place the responsibility for the sugar duty upoa them. CHICK AS vV E EJTaON. lilmer S. Motelr, Independent.

Just at present one Louisville man grits his teeth with beautiful firmness and is willing for his "right hand to bo stricken to his side" if ho ever gets on a car again. In getting at the cause of this animosity, first it must be stated that the man ia a bicycle rider first and a man afterward. In his magnificent enthusiasm, which caused him to over look a hot sun and a long road, he do cided to "taka a little run" down to Western park. Panting, his legs begging for a little rest, he had almost reached the park. There ho would rest until the Pun went down and spin back in tho cool of tho evening. lie would find a breeze and a glass of beer and get the throbbing out of his head and body. Ho would twist, a struggle with a handle bar that would havo its own way, and a man lay sprawling in tha dust Tho man got up, a figure half white from the dust, and inspected .his -wheeL The tire had caught in the street car track, and the wheel -was utterly disabled. At this moment a crowd of sni.-ill boyg camo up. "Wheel broke, mister?" "Yes," coldly and with tho bopo of tcpclling the boy. "You fell, didn't you?" asked a small boy with a face cf iron. Tho rider did not arswer. "His mouth's full of dust," said the faeo of iron. The rider smiled meekly. Ho hoped to propitiate tho faco of iron. "He's trying to make out ho didn't hart himself. " A (small boy, who hitherto had stood in tho background, came forward aid irnxudently began to ring the bell on tho bicycle. Then it was the rider de termined upon flight, not precipitate flight, but dignified. IIo seized his lame wheel and started forward. "That ain't tho way to town." "Did you get that bicycle la a pep com bag?" "His wheel ain't broke. Ho just can't ride. " These and many moro wero flung ai tho forlorn wheelman by the small boys, who trooped along behind at a safo distance. The rider turned and said very firmly, "You boys go away now and leavo mo alone." "Ho wants to be left alone." "Heowl cw! owl" "Pzt! pKit!" "I-etter send for hia folks. " At this momont a street car camo along. Here was an escape. lie hailed the car. The conductor looked around and shook his head. "What?" "V7o don't carry no wheels." "I'll report you.

"I further take it that if I should order a drink, and after receiving it fail to pav, vou would about break mo in two?" "Certainly !' ' responded tho bartendei cheerfully. "Ah, I imagine, too, that if I pro ceeded to your lunch counter and"to."ed with tho eatables for a time you would havo me kicked into the middle of next week?" "That's what I would," tho barten der confidently replied. "Well, I thought so. You see, I'm writing a realistic novel, aud I'm rank ing a personal study of tho philanthro pist who is to figure in it, but you won't do, my friend, you won't do."
