also badly bruised.
JVIr. and Mrs. Gates were en route
from Australia and were with theii
children eating in the dining eai
when the wreck occurred. The train
was over an hour late and passed
Wyaconda, the last station east, at
the rate of 65 miles an hour. When
the heavy train struck the curve at
Cama the rails spread.
The train consisted of -two mail
cars, seven Pullmans and one dining
car. The mail cars, the dining cai
and the two forward sleepers went
into the ditch. The tender was
ditched, but the engine remained on
the track. The derailed coaches were
smashed to kindling wood, even the
axles being bent out of shape.
The conductor went to a farmhouse
and telephoned a report of the wreck.
The railroad officials then hurried a
relief train from Fort Madison.
The trainmen worked nobly, assisted
by unhurt passengers and neighboring
farmers. The place of the wreck is
distant from all communication. Every
effort is being made to complete the
list of dead and wounded, but most of
the latter are in the railroad hospital
at Fort Madison and those in charge
refuse information.

IULL AT WASHINGTON,
Great Northern President Opposes In
terstate Commerce Bills.
Minneapolis, April 30.The corre
spondent of The Times at Washington
says:
J. J. Hill, the leading spirit in the
Northern Securities railway trust, was
a visitor at the national capital during
the day. In the senate marble wait
ing room he had talks with Senators
Spooner, Clapp, Hansbrough, Clark of
Montana, Gibson and others.
These senators declined to say what
the subject of the conferences were
about, but it is known that he was urg
ing them for business reasons to stand
in congress against any radical legis
lation which would damage the com
merce of the country.
He was especially bitter against the
pending interstate commerce bills now
having hearings before house and sen
ate committees. He said that the pas
sage of these measures at this time
would have a very bad*influence on
railway stocks and do incalculable
damage to the business of the Missis
sippi valley.
He said that the railroads of the
country, as rapidly as good business
policy would permit, were accommo
dating themselves to new conditions
and it they were assaulted by any such
powerful influence as the national leg
islature while in this transition stage
it would cause the most serious harm
not only to the transportation prop
erty, but to business generally.
Mr. Hill said that the friends of good
business should proceed, upon the logi
cal course that the interstate com
merce laws and antilaws were strong
enough now and that time should be
taken to see if they did not meet every
requirement when tested.

ing at the Lumbermen's Exchange in
this city for the purpose of deciding
vhat course should be taken in deal
ing with the lumber loaders who have
struck for 60 cents an hour at Lake
Superior ports.
It was unanimously decided not to
pay the men more than 50 cents. The
meeting was large, President F. W.
Gilchrist of Alpena, Mich., presiding.
Nearly all the other officers of the or
ganization were present and fully 100
telegrams from mill owners and vessel
men all over the lakes requesting that

flection in their compasses, caused by a
magnetic deposit on the north shore of
Lake Superior, the steamer Tampa
and schooner Aurora, coal laden, went
ashore 20 miles from this city. News
of the accident to the vessels came to
Duluth by telephone from the city
pumping station, eight miles from the
city, after a number of the crew work
ing the boats had walked from the
scene of the wreck. The tug Zenith,
with a wrecking outfit, was sent at
once to the scene. The boats are lying

PUBLIC BUILDING BILL
OMNIBUS MEASURE PASSED BY
The Commander in Samar Given An
other Roasting in the Senate.
Washington, April 30.A spirited
discussion of the Philippine situation
occurred in the senate. It revolved
around the order alleged to have been
issued by General Jacob H. Smith to
make the island of Samar a howling
wilderness and to kill all male inhab
itants over the age of 10 years. The
debate took a wide range, however,
and many other points were discussed.
When the Philippine bill was laid
before the senate no one was pre
pared to deliver a set speech on it.
Mr. Lodge (Mass.), in charge of the
measure, said he /felt compelled to
press it for consideration. Hia re
marks drew the fire of Mr. Teller
(Colo.), who criticised the Republic
ans for not participating in the discus
sion. The debate continued for more
than two hours. Mr. Teller declared
that General Smith, if he had issued
such an order as had been attributed
to him, ought to be dismissed from the
service, as it was a disgrace to the
American army and to the American
people. Mr. Lodge said that While he
knew little of the circumstances sur
rounding the alleged order he did not
approve of cruel methods warfare
and every right-minded person must
regret General Smith's order. To him
it was revolting. He defended the ad
ministration, however, saying that as
soon as knowledge of the order had
come to Washington^ the president had
directed that General Smith be court
martialed.
THE PRINCETON TJNIOK: THURSDAY, MAY 1, 1902.
THE HOUSE AFTER THREE "J
HOURS' DEBATE.
MAJORITY OVERWHELMING
But Nine Members Back a Demand
for the Ayes and NoesThe Philip
pine Situation Discussed in the Sen
ate and General Smith Is the Re-
cipient of Another Storm of Criti
cismAdministration Defended.
Washington, April 30.Under a
special order which allowed three
hours' debate^ but which cut off all
opportunity for amendment, the
house passed an omnibus public build
ing bill which will distribute $17,405,-
430 among 174 cities. As the bill cov
ers into the treasury $1,585,000 the
total amotfnt carried by the bill is re
duced to that extent. The bill pro
vides for 77 new buildings and sites,
6 buildings on siites already pur
chased, 17 buildings on donated sites
and 58 increases in appropriations for
buildings already authorized. It also
provides for the purchase of 16 sites.
The majority of the bill was so over
whelming that only nine members
backed a demand for a,yes and noes
onjthe passage of the bill. There was
some criticism of the method
which it was proposed to pass the bill
without opportunity for amendment,
which Mr. Mercer, chairman of the
committee, answered by stating that
if the bill had been subject to amend
ment the appropriations carried by it
would have been increased to $60,000,-
000. The consideration of the agricul
tural bill was resumed, but only seven
pages were disposed of.
STILL AFTER SMITH.
ALL ANXIOUS TO SELL.
by
American Capitalists Besieged
German Potash Owners.
Berlin, April 30.Since the appear
ance-here of a paragraph in a news
paper averring that S. D. Crenshaw
and E. O. Saulsbury were in this pity
to buy up all Germany's potash
works for the Virginia-North Carolina
Chemical company a procession of
potash owners has been waiting turns
to offer them properties. Even mem
bers of the closely knit German potash
syndicate are making propositions to
the Americans.
The mere announcement that the
American potash trust was invading
Germany caused the German potash
owners keen sensations. Some of
them are hoping for an enormously
profitable sale, while others are dis
mayed at the prospect of a new and
powerful competitor. It now seems
probable that the chemical company
will get secure lodgment in Germany.
HAS TO LEAVE RUSSIA.
Austrian Military Attache Involved in
the Grimm Scandal.
St. Petersburg, April 30.One of
the sequels of the charges of treason
brought against Colonel Grimm, the
Russian colonel who was recently
brought here from Warsaw to be tried
by courtmartial, was the departure
April 27 from St. Petersburg of the
Austrian military attache, Major E.
Mueller, who has leased his house and
probably will not return^ Major Muel
ler was popular and capable,-but his
position here had become untenable
since the discovery among Colonel
Grimm's papers of a written offer to
Major Mueller, which the latter disre
garded. Major Mueller protested
that he was not involved in the scan
dal, but he found his usefulness had
been curtailed.
inventor Watson Dead.
Paterson, N. J., April 30.William
C. Watson, an inventor, died at his
home here, aged 87 years. In the
early 50's he patented an improved
type of sewing machine. Among his
more recent inventions was a railroad
car coupler, thousands of which are
now,in use on various lines'through
out the United States.
Many Fishermen Perish.
Dunkirk, France, April 30.Advices
received here say that the French fish
ing fleet was recently caught in a gale,
in the North sea, that three schooners
foundered and that many lives were

TRVAt. OF GENERAL SMITH.
Evidence to Show Treacherous Nature
of Inhabitants.
Manila, April 30.When the trial by
courtmartial of General Jacob
Smith was resumed Pedro Bella, a boy
"mascot" of Company E of the Ninth
infantry, commanded by Captain
Thomas W. Connell, who was massa
cred by the Samar natives at Balan
giga, testified that he saw Captain
Connell's death wound given by a boy
of 15. The witness saw several othei
boys of the same age among the na
tives who took part in the massacre
and thought he himself could use a
bolo against a soldier.
Captain Waldo E. Ayer, General
Smith's adjutant general, said he had
been closely in touch with all- the
movements and knew General Smith's
plans, purposes and feelings at every
phase. He added that on the general's
arrival the coast was deserted and he
saw the same towns filled with people
T'/hen he left. But so far as the people
Samar were concerned, he met only
in man worthy of respect, who was
sincere, patriotic and honorable. He
must admit, however, that the man
with this qualification was born at
Marinduque, of Tagalog ancestry.
First Lieutenant Van Deman of the
Twenty-first infantry, who had charge
of the military information bureau,
described, from the records, the
treachery of the natives of Samar.
VICTORY FOR SHAFFER.
Amalgamated Association Endorses
His Report in Toto.
Wheeling, W. Va., April 30.It is
now practically certain that President
Theodore Shaffer is the big man of
the Amalgamated Association. The
convention, with few dissenting voices,
endorsed in toto his annual report
The committee on president's and
by/ other officers' reports reported favor
ably on the statements entrusted to"it
and their recommendations were rati
fied by the convention. The most im
portant of the reports was that of Mr.
Shaffer. In many respects it was the
most interesting document ever issued
by an Amalgamated president. It gave
the history of the strike and his ex
planation of every one of his many
acts which aroused criticism during
the momentous struggle. The presi
dent based his hopes upon his report
and it proved that he judged wisely.
The action of the convention is a vin
dication of his entire course. It is
not likely now that there will be much
opposition to Mr. Shaffer's re-election.
WASHINGTON MERGER SUIT.

the National Civic Federation on Sat
urday, met during the day. Only mem
bers of the sub-committee were pres
ent. Before going into the meeting
President Mitchell of the Mine Work
ers said he could not tell whether a
settlement of the differences would be
arrived at during the day or not, or
whether another session would be nec
essary. He refused to venture any pre
diction as to the outcome of the meet
ing.

as follows:
"The rigsdag (composed of both
houses) approves the cession on con

plebiscite, similar to the one taken in
1867."
The folkething, by a vote of 98 to 7,
adopted the new proposals

Trinidad, British West Indies,
April 30.The news of the defeat
of the Venezuelan government troops
near San Antonio last week is now
confirmed. The death 6f the govern
ment general, Castello, is also con
firmed.
General Escallante, the second in
command of the Venezuelan army,
who was reported missing after the
fight, has been made prisoner by the
insurgents. He was one of Castro's
most faithful officers and was former
ly governor of Caracas. He came
from Castro's native state, Los An
des.
General Landatte and his entire staff
were taken prisoners by the insur
gents and the Venezuelan forces also
lost their ammunition and artillery to
the insurgents.
Barcelona, in the state of Bermudez,
where General Velutini, the minister
of the interior, was stationed, was
menaced by insurgents Monday.
The Venezuelan government is said
to be in ignorance of the whereabouts
of the insurgent general, Monegas,
who, with a force of 1,800 men, has
not been heard from in six days. It
is generally believed that he has taken
advantage of the battle at San An
tonio to push his command forward
in the direction of Caracas.
New York, April 30.M. Bolet Mo
nogas of the revolutionary junta has
received from Curacao, the following
news about the revolution in Ven

skirts of Coro, capital of the state of
Falcon, and is expected at any mo
ment to take it. General Salaigne has
taken the port at Tuscias, in the state
of Barquisimeeto, which is an impor
tant place, where the revolutionist
steamer Bolivar can take coal and
land ammunition for the revolutionists
of the interior of the country.
All the eastern part of the country
is lost to the government and taken
by Generals Mendoza, Rolla and
Bolles. The forces of Mendoza and
other generals have joined and are
marching to attack Caracas. The
government is entrenching Puerto
Cabello, as General Montejo of the

that point. The government has taken
the defensive, as it has no more troops
to send out.
STANDS BY THE ARMY.
American Chamber of Commerce at
Manila Goes on Record.
Manila, April 30.The American
chamber of commerce has passed a
resolution endorsing the action of the
United States army in the Philippines
in an endeavor to counteract what the
members of the chamber believe to
be the opinion prevailing in the Unit
ed States that officers and soldiers
have acted in violation of the rules of
war. The preamble says the chamber
is composed exclusively of American
business men, who have been thrown
into immediate contact with the pre
vailing conditions everywhere in the
archipelago, and it was resolved that
without the constant watchfulness and
protection of the army in the Philip
pines no property or business inter
ests would be safe, and that upon its
influence depends the stability of the
civil government. The resolution
eulogizes General Chaffee, "whose
earnest effort has sustained and as
sisted the civil authorities in the dif
ficult task of the establishment of
civil government," and praises "his
good judgment and humanity, which
have won him the admiration and af
fection of all loyal Americans in the
islands."
MILES' CASE SHELVED.
President Will Take No Action as
Long as the General Keeps Quiet.
Washington, April 30.It is now be
lieved that no further consideration
will be given by the president to the
subject of retiring Lieutenant General
Miles so long as the commander of
the army continues his present atti
tude of reserve and that the case will
be allowed to remain as it is unless
General Miles himself should do some
thing or take some action to revive
the recent determination of the presi
dent. Swore the Votes Were Not Forgeries.

ASSUMES RESPONSIBILITY.
General MacArthur and the Plan Used
to Capture Aguinaldo.
Washington, April 30.The senate
committee on the Philippines resumed
the examination of witnesses in con
nection with the investigation of af
fairs in the Philippine islands. Gen
eral Arthur MacArthur continued his
examination. He explained the state
ment in his annual report of June 30
1900, that "the United States had ac
quired sovereignty by treaty and in a
way owned the Philippine islands, but
did not own the Philippine people,"
by saying that these conclusions were
reached after conversation with an
infinite number of people and observa
tion and that they represented the
bulk of the views of the Nationalist
party. He then, in response to ques
tions by Senator Patterson, described
the different towns embraced within
the American lines on the night of
Feb. 5, 18&9, when the outbreak oc
curred, and identified what purported
to be a copy of the order of General
Luna for the massacre of the, foreign
residents of Manila. Senator Patter
son sought to show that it was not dif
ficult to deceive Aguinaldo by forgery
and referred to his capture by General
Funston, through a forged letter sign
ed "Lacuna." General MacArthur,
with considerable emphasis, declared
that General Funston was not respon
sible in any way for any of the meth
ods which obtained in the capture of
Aguinaldo.
"I am responsible in the matter in
every way and particular," said Gen
eral MacArthur. "It was one of the
deceptions frequently practiced in war,
and whatever deception attaches there
to, I take."
