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.

The St. Lonis and San Francisco

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

committee, who desired to withhold

SO AGREEMENT YET.
riie Coal mncl Iron Ore Schedule the
Etambliuf Block Now.
Washington. Aug. 10. 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.

HARD LUCK.
A Disconcerted Wheelman Made tho Vic
tim of the Small Boy.
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. "
"Them's our orders. " Louisville

Ho wafted into a saloon and bowed
airily to tho bartender.
"My friend, " ho 6c;d, with a wavool
his hand, "I suppose if I esked you to
give mo a dollar you'd tell ine you'd
see me farther first. "
"That's just about right, " was the
brief response.
"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
