The Globe has always been supplied to the news men on the trains, but at the previous size encountered difficulties .which do not now need to be recounted. At the present size it ought to be found everywhere. Parties who cannot in the future obtain it on the trains or of news dealers v-ill confer a favor by reporting the mat ter to this office with particulars. As far as could be learned from the com plexion of the delegates chosen at the Democratic primary meetings last night Judge Wm. B. MoGrorty is a decided favor ite for the nomination for probate judge to-day. Such a selection would be in every way acceptable. He is thoroughly competent. of unquestioned in tegrity and £_a gentleman to whom it would be safe to trust the interest of that exceedingly important office. The unfor tunate accident which recently maimed Judge McGrorty for life, creates a feeling of sympathy, which, coupled with his un doubted qualifications, seems to make his election a certainty. Gen. Wolseley, who has made such short work of Arabi Pasha's Egyptian rebellion, visited this country during the progress of our civil war, and was a rebel sympathizer. Wolseley ran the blockade and got into Lee's army. He is said to have expressed his faith at one time in the suc cess of the sounthern confederacy, the wish probably being father to the thought, and ef fected great contempt for the military in • competency at the head of the union army. He wrote an article for Blackwood's magazine, in which he expressed these views.—[Minneapo lis Tribune.] Wolseley never did anything of the kind, as every Englishman knows, and as every American before writing on the subject ought to know —excepting, of course, the whining ignoramus who plays editorial paragraphist of the Washburn-, Sawdust organ. Of course it is the same old story. Mai. Newson gave the Pioneer Press all his letters on the subject of the iron find at the Harvester works; also all other information he possessed, as did the direc tors of the .Harvester works in the first in stance, and for this act of courtesy on the part of these parties, an editorial in Sun day's issue slurs both. In reply Maj. New son sends a letter to the P. P., which, of course, was "unfortunately too long to print," but in lieu of it, the editor exoner ates the Major from the insinuations of the previous issue. Now, the fact is, the P. P. in its eagerness to get ahead of its contemporaries rushed into the iron business with a boom, but it could not keep it up, so innocent parties are made scapegoats. Newson is in no way re sponsible for the delay of the diamond drill, nor are the directors of the "Harvester works, who ordered it, but the delay is caused by Mr. Bullock, who cannot just now come. It is quite likely that in the future what Maj. Newson and the Harves ter works company may know about tbs progress of the iron mine, will be kept to themselves, and not made another object for critisism in an arrogant and indecent newspaper. SEEING IS RELIEVING. Since it was at the Globe's suggestion that the enterprising gentlemen of the St. Paul Navigation company tendered the use of their handsome river yacht H. W. Longfellow, for the purpose of a practical sawdust investigation, we must approve the excursion which will come off to-day, with representatives of the two cities on board. But, should anything happen to prevent the boat from fulfilling her mis sion, the searchers after truth. need not be thwarted. Many of the men themselves who throw sawdust into the river refuse to express themselves when interviewed by newspaper men. A few of the more len ient mouth-pieces of the sawdust interest —among whom is the Minneapolis Tribune claim that slabs should be kept out of the river, yet say that sawdust will not sink. People inclined to be duped by this "lie that is all- a lie," have but to go to the short line bridge and peer into the river. The water . is shallow just now and .they can see the sawdust that not only covers the banks but lies in a broad and thick drift upon the bottom of the river. See ing is believing. ' -■■ i .■i^i^f^:- WASHBURN'S COWARDLY DECLINA TIOX- The letter of W. D. Washburn to Hon. A. A. Ames, declining a joint discussion on the issues of the present campaign, is in many respects a most extraordinary docu ment. He says, "I am a life-long Republican." Now, as the Republican party has only ex isted since 1856, it follows that lie must have been under ago at the time ho swin dled Dr. Stewart out of his second term. But the fact is Bill Washburn fancies, through ignorance of his party's history, that the Republican .party has had exis tence since the formation of the world. It is not strange, then, that such an igno: ramus should^decline any effort to "add to the enlightenment of the voters of the Fourth district." He "stands, unequivocally, on the record made by his party, in all its grand history." Has Mr. Washburn nothing to say in the ' justification of the bill he introduced to rob the Indians of their pine lands? Has he nothing to say in regard to his course in the sawdust bill, which he was so urgently pressed to advocate Will he not attempt to explain to the vo ters of the district why he failed to urge the passage of the bill to save the naviga tion of the river, and save the farmers of the state millions annually in the transpor tation of their surplus products to mar ket. . The average expenditures of the govern ment for the last ten years, in round num bers was £156,000,000, but the last session of congress squandered §270,000,000 of the people's money, and this was done in part by Mr. Washburn, whose votes were always on the side of public plunder, . Has Mr. Washburn nothing to say in re gard to this enormous waste of the public treasure? . Does he fully approve of the acts of the "star route" thieves in swind ling the government out of millions and using a part of their ill-gotten gains to compel the voters " in Indiana and New York in the last presidential campaign and through ?this corruption secure the perpetuation of the rule of his "good old party ?" Has he no defence to make for all the ascality of his political friends, "conse quent upon a Republican administration of affairs for the past twenty years?" Mr. Washburn does not intend to appeal to the intelligence of the voters of the dis trict, but he confidently relies upon buying his seat in congress with the money he made by selling out his own city, by bar tering away the only railroad owned ex clusively by Minneapolis, We have a higher opinion of the hon esty and intelligence of the votersof this district and do not believe that they can be bought like so many sheep and oxen. . We believe that they will assert their manhood on election day and vote for Dr. Ames and thereby repudiate a man who has proven false to every interest of his confiding constituents, and one who from the nar rowness of his beam is unable to intelli gently represent them. POLITICAL NOTES. The Ohio Democrats predict that Sher man's bandanna will be the next President flag, and that it will lead on to victory. The Philadelphia Times says the Inde pendent camp-fires are starting up all over the State, and soon it will be dangerous for stalwarts to go out o' nights. The Massachusetts Democratic conven tion resolved that "fitness should be the passport to public office," and then nomi nated Ben Butler for governor. The Albany Evening Journal thinks the dust raised in the fall election is nicely calculated to obscure the failure of the prosecution in the star route cause. The Ohio Republicans begin to see th handwriting on the wall. They think the biggest and most dangerous machine that ever appeared in politics is the brewers' machine. That is where the "boss" work is coming in most effectually. It is apparent to everybody that the Cameron scow in Pennsylvania is taking in water badly, and must evidently go to i the bottom; yet the water-soaked crew put a brave face on it, and shout their confi dence in their ability to weather the storm —merely whistling to keep their failing courage up. During the present campaign in Penn sylvania, Beaver, Cameron's candidate for governor, has made sixty speeches; his opponent, Pattison, the anti-Cameron Re- publican candidate for governor, has made but one, and it is thought the latter stands the best chance of an election. In a vol ume of words, there is not assured suc cess. A correspondent of the N. Y. Graphic, who signs himself "A Republican, but not a Conkling Republican" represents may oth er voters who, like him, believe that Mr. Roscoe Conkling's political future is some how at stake in the election of this fall, and that they must in some way manifest their disappropriation of him and his methods. These gentlemen claim to con stitute a portion of the very tangible enti ty known as "the silent vote," and this si lent vote is, in so far as they can do it, to be cast against Judge Folger in order that Roscoe Conkling may be punished still more than he has already been punished. The N. Y. Tribune, in effect, gives Penn sylvania to the Democrats. It says: "The, shadow of coming defeat has fallen over the machine ticket in Pennsylvania so heavily that it is doubtful if even Senator Cameron has any hope of its success." Further on it remarks: "At the present rate of progress it is not at all unlikely that the Independents will divide the Re ; publican vote about equally with the ma chine." If Cameron is to be defeated and the Independents divide the Republican vote about equally with his machine, a Democratic success is the only remaining inference, as sure as logic is logic. Folger stultifies himself by denouncing the forgery which gave him the nomina tion, and yet attempting to profit by the fruit of that forgery. He accepts the stolen goods to save the Republican party. Has the party then become so corrupt that a resort must be had to fraud and forgery to save it? The defection among the Re publican clergymen of Brooklyn, causes the Stalwart bosses .to quake. "I'm sick of this cry of opposition to Folger," said a prominent Brooklyn Republican. "This morning met Rep. Dr. Scudder, pastor of the JCentral •_ Congregational church, on Hancock street, a lifelong Republican, and he said to me that it was j a shame and a disgrace that such means had been adopted to bring about the nomination of adminis tration candidates. . He said that unless there was a change in the ticket he. should feel compelled to vote for Cleveland and Hill. Rev. Dr. Frazier, Dr. Duryea's suc cessor in the Classon Avenue Presbyterian church, is also, I understand, out for the Democratic nominees. When such men as these talk in that way, what is the use of trying to elect the ticket?" ; 'fByH Arrostod for Robbery. Philadelphia, Oct. 3.Jerome Stewart, admitted to the dental department of the University of Pennsylvania last Monday, was arrested to-day, charged with being concerned in the robbery of the book and stationery store of J. V. Stout at Jackson vill, Ills., last July. He denied he had been concerned in the robbery, but stated that although he knew of the . affair, he had not left Jacksonville until last month. He is held for the action of the Illinois author ities. ' ' "1MB ST. TAWi DAILY GLOBE; WEDNESDAY MORNING OCTOBER t 4, 188^ E HIM AGAIN. The Republican Nominee for Governor of New York Has No Friends. THEY ALL GO FOR HIM WITH A CLUB The Metropolitan Press Almost a Unit ?/.'Jv;:;;-'* in Abusing Him* GEO. W. CURTIS TAKES A HAND. The _ Indications in Ohio Decidedly Fa vorable to the Democrats. THE SALOON INTEREST AROUSED, And Determined to Make a Fight for Existence. The Press On the Letters. New Ygbk, Sept. 3.Following are New York newspaper comments on the letters of Folger and Hepburn: The Tribune: The man on the Saratoga ticket whom nobody objected to, and with whose nomination everybody was satisfied finds the scandals of the convention too heavy a burden and refuses to stand under them. Hepburn's letter is modest, manly and consistent. He makes no reflections upon the convention that nominated him for congressman at large, but frankly says circumstances have come to light since which prevent Republicans from regarding its action as authorative. He is unwilling to hold a nomination under such circum stances, and so withdraws. He will stand all the stronger for this with the great ma jority of Republicans. Mr. Folger is not unwilling to hold a nomination under such circumstances. He accepts and writes two or three columns to tell why. A case en tirely clear could have been stated in short er space. The Herald: The letter would have been shorter if Mr. Folger had not felt it necessary to attempt to do justice to him self and to his friends as well as he could in his acceptance of the nomination, which he admits persons of "good standing in the community," and some holding official relations with the Republican party, have urged him to decline. Instead of taking their sound and honest advice, Mr. Folger has chosen to accept the nomination, and the larger part of his present letter is nat urally taken up with a discussion of the question whether the receiver is really as bad as the thief. We wish for his own case he had taken their advice and declined the nomination, which, as they saw, as he sees and as. everyone in the state sees, was procured for him by most contemptible fraud and forgery, One wrong necessi tates another, and the men who compassed Mr. Folger's nomination against the will of the convention will not stop at trifles to secure his election against the will of the voters. The World: Mr. Folger invites the Re publicans of New York to move on to bat tle to the inspiring strains of the Dead March in Saul. The three points' of state policy on which Folger dwells most earnestly and intelligently in remarkable letters are the necessity of local self-gov ernment in our cities, towns and villages; the importance of remitting to primary meetings of the people the choice of dele gates, who are to represent the people in the organization of political parties, and the duty of economy in the administration of our state and local affairs. As these three points happen to be cardinal fea tures of the Democratic policy which Groyer Cleveland stands pledged to carry into effect, respectable Republicans may contemplate with equanimity the gloomy party prospects which their candidate un folds to them. ' The Times: Unfortunately not his (Fol ger's) great ability, his high character, his good intentions, nor even the reasonable assurance that he would make an excellent governor in spite of the influences that have been enlisted in his behalf, his candi dacy can suffice to meet one of the chief objections of those who are dissatisfied. That is fixed beyond recall in the record of the past. It is not in his power to wipe it out. The Republicans of the state were not permitted by untrammelled choice, by a free exercise of delegated power honest ly and fairly executed, to nominate their own candidate for governor, and many of them feel they have a principle to vindi cate, that is even more important for the time being than the excellent ideas of state and national policy which are urged in the letter of acceptance. The Evening Post: Judge Folger's let ter of acceptance is not a cheerful or in spiring document. It could not well be under the existing circumstances. A man who Seels himself obliged to make an elab orate apology to the people for being a candidate, and who virtually asks them for a suspension of judgment as to the conscientiousness of his conduct in accept ing a nomination, cannot be expected to be entirely free from a certain depression of spirits when speaking to the public. It is the men, the circumstances and the in fluences surrounding him that make his election unacceptable to a large element in the Republican party and the confes sion of his personal feelings with regard to his candidacy are, therefore, rather calcul ated to strengthen than to weaken the ob jections to him. The Commercial Adyertiser: There is nothing that can be said here that would add to the strength of Mr. Folger's state ments. His dignity, frankness, sincerity and devotion to Republican principles speak for themselves. The" duty of Republicans is plain. It is to elect their ticket and elect it for reasons that have been so forcibly stated in the letter" of ac ceptance.' There can be no turning back or aside. The field is before the Republi cans, and they will be untrue to themselves and their great party if they do not win it. The Evening Telegram ;Folger is proba bly wrong in his estimate of the damage which his party would have incurred by his* rightful declination of this nomina tion; evidently wrong in imagining his party can be benefited . by his assention to the consummation of , acknowledged wrong. '*''" The Mail and Express: As might have been expected of so brave and honest a man, he faces without fear and handles without gloves the convention frauds, that have been so dishonestly manipulated and misrepresented in the interests of general calumny and chaos. In the terse and mas culine style that so fitly comes from a man utterly devoid of the cowardice that al ways belongs to weak and insincere pre tenders, he reviews oalmly the history of the frauds that affected only the single matter of the recommendation of the state committee' as to a temporary chairman, i and that did not affect a single vote in the convention, even on that preliminary skir- : mish in its proceedings. . , The Brooklyn Eagle: Mr. Folger's let ter, accepting the so-called republican nomination is one of the most extraordi nary documents in our political literature. Never has it to the Eagle's knowledge been deemed necessary by a candidate for a great office to present himself as an apolo gist for acknowledged fraud in the conven tion that submitted his name to the peo ple, and. beg voters to believe . that while forced by stress of circumstances to figure as a representative of such a body, he has no hand in debauching its character. The turn of affairs should impress upon Demo crats, exceptional responsibility. It is their highest duty now to so behave in their nominating convention, as it will be later on in the management of the state, as to give no Republicans cause to regret the spirit with which he has struck down the wrong doers in his own party. The Brooklyn. Union-Argus : The letter in which Judge Folger accepts the Repub lican nomination for governor is a manly, honest and plain spoken declaration of his position to the Republican party, to the convention by which he was nominated, and to the principles embodied in the plat form of the convention. Republicans, and all who desire to renominate an honest and vigorous administration, will find in Judge Folger's letter many reasons to make them satisfied with his nomination and promote his election. The Brooklyn Times : Judge Folger has accepted. The column or more which he de votes io apology for not declining is a sor ry and discouraging prelude to his state ment of principles. The accompanying letter of declination from Mr. Hepubrn puts an additional plaintive strain into i this sad dirge over Stewart methods or L mismanagement, and the fatal policy of I the administration that will live in history as having marked the "rule and ruin" on the records of the Republican party. Curtis on Folger. New Yobk, Oct. 3.Geo. William Curtis, in a letter to the secretary of the New York Civil Service association says: "Judge Foler's ability and character are not in question, but his nomination is. That nomination was procured by the combined power of fraud and patronage, and to support it at the polls would be to ac quiesce in fraud and patronage as legiti mate forces in a New York convention. Every good citizen is bound to resist to the utmost such wrong to free institutions, and the only effectual way in which voters canemancipate themselves from the corrupt and debasing rule of the machine is to de feat its candidate. This I believe will be done decisively by the Republican voters of New York and Pennsylvania at the elect ion this autumn. They will see the party defeated rather than fraud and corruption of patronage triumphant. The rents in both states show that no greater political peril, is now confronting the country than the complete subjugation of the party by unscrupulous cabals which bribe with the public employment and pay their way by filching from the public treasury. This is an evil which will end in violence unless it is conclusively rebuked by the people at the polls." The Home Stretch in Ohio. [Special Telegram to the Globe.] Columbus, O., Oct. —The campaign has progressed far enough to enable both the Republican ahd Democratic executive committees to begin figuring on the prob able result a week from to-day, Both sides concede that the apathy which is apparent to the mostjeasual observer means a fall ing off in the vote. While the Republicans are catching at these straws and relying on unknown quantities, the Democrats are coming in on the home stretch with a lar§e reserve force with whooping cheer and or ganized allies which will overwhelm any opposition to the Democratic principle of free will and individual liberty. The Ger mans present a solid front, and are to do their work on election day, not alone in voting, but in exercising all possible influ ence. The working men and trade unions are pulling with the Democrats this year. Colonel Bond has had larger meetings than either of the two regular parties. The prohibitionists have been running a lively campaign, and will nearly poll their usual vote of off years, while the Greenbackers have gone to pieces. It is a thing well known to politicians that the saloonists heretofore toek no di rect part in politics, all claiming that it would hurt their business, but this year they are defending it, and are not only in solid line, but each one is pledged to [two or more votes besides their own, and they are competing vigorously in gaining con verts. It is almost impossible to estimate the extent of this influence when arrayed in this manner. It never before made an open, square fight, but there is no compro mise now, and it will not show its hand till the day comes. Their places will all be closed on election day, and they will be a force actually at work. There is positive information of a line in favor of the Dem ocracts in the mining regions and at the rolling mills in Cleveland. These and di verse other movements are indications of the ability of the Democrats not only to hold on, bat to keep on gaining as they come inside the wire. A Panic Among Republicans. [Special Telegram to the Globe."| New Yobk, Oct. 3. —A feeling of conster nation, almost amounting to a small pan ic, exists in the ranks of the New York Re publicans this morning. The fact that Folger has determined to make the can vass forjgovernor has demoralized the half breeds, while the refusal of Hepburn to run for Congressman-at-large has fully up set both wings of the party. There will probably be a meeting of the State Cen tral Committee this afternoon to name some man in place of Hepburn. The lea ders see the necessity of speedy action if efficient work is to be accomplished be tween now and election day. Judge Geo. Batcheler, of Saratoga who is a mem ber of the international court at Cairo, Egypt, and is now on his way here, is mentioned as a. good man to take Hepburn's place on the Republican ticket. - The other man talked -: of in - the same connection is Larin Palmer,a wealthy tobacco ' merchant : of . Brooklyn. It is thought likely that the state central com mittee will name one of these . two . men. Folger's letter of acceptance has provoked a good deal of criticism on account of.: its prolixity and its failure to explain away some of the objectionable features attend ing his nomination. There are no indi cations that the differences between the two factions will be in any way adjusted by it. . Post Mortem Endorsement. . Albany, N. Y., Oct. 3.The state com mittee of the anti-monopoly party en dorsed unanimously Hepburn, the Repub lican candidate for congressman-at-large, having declined to approve the entire Democratic ticket. In an address to the paople'it is proclaimed that the anti-mo- nopolists recognize the rights ef capitalj as well as labor. We appreciate the bene fit which corporate organizations have con erred upon the human race. We will labor as steadfastly to maintain the : rights ' of corporations as to enforce the observance of their duties, but the time has come when the people must or ganize and work to counteract the malign influences which have become so potent in all political parties, oblige these parties to live up to their professions, and re strain the power for evil wielded by a few unscrupulous men who have obtained con trol of the great forces of the century, and who in their use recognize no princi ples of action but personal or corporate aggrandizement. Samuel F. Carey was among the speakers at the mass meeting to-night. " -::"' -' • Won't Resign Till After the Election: [Spe^I Telegram to the Globe.] Washington, Oct. —Folger's letter of acceptance is favorably received by his political associates here. Assistant Secre tary New says Folger will not resign until after the election, as he desires to make his yearly report himself. New does not know who will succeed Folder. Supervis ing Architect Hell said to-day that Win. E. Chandler would be the man. He had in formation to this effect. Illinois Politics. Chicago, Oct. 3.—The Democratic state central committee in session here thi: afternoon decided to make a push for con trol of the next state legislature by nomi nating two out of the representative; in districts where, heretofore, unde: minority representation, they have beei content to elect one, and in Democratic districts to nominate a full representatioi of three. The Republican primaries in the First district, south division of Chicago and ad joining towns, held this afternoon indicat the renomination of Hon. Wm. Aldrich. [TheProspects in Ohio. New Yobk, Oct. 3.I met, recently, Mr. Clarke Irvine, the head of the Democratic State committee of Ohio. That pleasant faced young man said as follows about the state campaign: "I think there is very little doubt that we shall carry Ohio. Gov. Foster, who is not disposed to give many points in poli tics, shows some alarm. The Republicans made a great mistake in taking up the liquor question. It was not necessary for them te do so, but they were pestered by the Prohibition people, and they jumped to the conclusion that, although they might lose some German Republican votes, they would make up the difference in the temperance Democrats. They have been utterly disappointed in that. Very few Democrats have gone over to the temper ance question, but the whole quota is now well known. They got a mere sprinkling of Democratic support on the state ticket, and lost some 30,000 to 40,000 votes in the most important places." I inquired where those votes came from that the Republicans were getting from the Democrats. "Well, they come from small hamlets, where, by the present freedom of license, some unworthy person may have started a saloon and some disorder may have existed around it. Under our constitution it is not permissible for a local government to license or tax a saloon. The courts have settled it that any man can go into the liquor business. But that sort of indigna tion does not influence voters in the large towns." Mr. Irvine being called into another por tion of the room, I asked his companion, Mr. O'Key, I think, who is from Columbus, whether he took the same view of the situ ation. "I think, without any question," said he, "that the Democrats will elect their state ticket by a very considerable majority. I think, also, that we shall make remarkable gains in the congressional delegation, and, perhaps, have one-half of the entire con gressmen. I don't apprehend we will car ry both congressmen in the city of Cleve land. Mr. Everett, the Republican, who is running there, is quite a popular man, and has run ahead of his ticket in previous campaigns, and in one fight was openly supported by Mr. Armstrong, editor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Armstrong has been beaten for the nomination in his dis trict at Cleveland. One of the strongest men we had there was Waldemar Otis, who was at one time the Democratic mayor of Cleveland. It was urged, however, that when Gen. Garfield was; nominated for president Otis sent his check for $1,000, having a personal friendship for Garfield. This was spoken of against Otis' nomina tion with some effect." The same gentleman said: "While it is generally said that the two Cincinnati dis tricts will be carried by the Democrats, there is reasonable doubt about it. Mr. Butterworth, one of the Republican candi dates, is a remarkable campaigner, and lets the grass grow under his feet less than any man we have in the state. The other candidate of the Republicans in Cincin nati, Mr. A. Smith, was opposed to the leg islation which has incensed the Germans, and "went to the legislature to protest against it. This fact is well known among the Germans, and it may save him." "Then," said I, "your expectations are to elect your state ticket and increase your congressional delegation :\;'" "Undoubtedly," was the reply. "The of ficers to be voted for on the state ticket this year are not of great consequence, and though we carry the state we shall not get any great physical advantage at pres ent." "Does the fight between the federal ad ministration and the Garfield men absorb much attention in Ohio?" "No; nothing like it does in New York state. A year hence that conflict may ex tend to Ohio, but in the last election, when Foster was nominated, the Republicans in our state expressed "themselves so satis factorily to the sympathy for Garfield that the present disturbance in the party has not marked the campaign." I inquired if the senatorial £ question came up at all in the present (democratic caucuses. "No," was the reply. "Well," said I, "suppose you would have an election for senator this year would Pendleton get his seat again ;'■ ■■'■ "Unquestionably." ; "Don't you suppose that Judge - Thur man might divide the legislature with Pendleton?" ' "No. The understanding is that Thur man is for the time being out of politics, and rather supports Pendleton. There has been some talk of- Judge Payne, of Cleveland, tunning for . senator, but we cannot trace it to anything reliable." . "We are glad," said the gentleman, "that the fight over the tariff is being made this year, for it will certainly come up and hare to be fought by us in the president tial campaign. We prefer to have it part ly raised now, and make some progress with it before that time." Bolts the Ticket. Elmiba, N. Y., Oct. 3.—The Havana Itemi ze); a Republican newspaDer of Schuyler j county, started by friends of Garfield, three ■ years ago. refuses to support the Republican state ticket, and declares for the Democratic candidates, at the same time supporting' the Republican local nominations.

A RAILROAD HOLOCAUST. Collision on a Kansas Kailroatl—The Engineers, Firemen ami Baggagemen of Both Trains Burned to Death. Hutchinson, Kan., Oct. —The Canon Ball train, leaving here for the west at 6:20 last night, ran into pasesnger train No. 6, at Salem, a switch station nine miles dis tant. No. 6 was on a side track waiting for the Canon Ball to pass, but the switch being misplaced the Canon Ball ran into it, completely demolishing both engines and both baggage cars. Several persons were seriously injured. Further particu lars about the accident says the switch, which was misplaced, was turned by a green brakeman, who disappeared imme diately, but went to Nickerson three hours later and gave himself up. When the engines met there was a terrible crash, and both engineer, the fireman and baggageman were buried in the wreck, which was soon ignited from the engine fire, and was fed by fresh coal inlj the tenders. When taken from the ruins the bodies were scarcely recognized. A road carpenter named Schafer in the baggage car has since died, making six deaths by the ac cident. A special train bearing the bodies of the dead is now approaching Topeka, and will be received by a procession com posed of the various orders of the city. The dead men, except Halliday, resided here and were much respected. FOREIGN NOTES. The Latest Intelligence from Egypt and Various European Points.
