Ber, I.pI 1L-'The horror of the grat Quonay oelident was recalled tlst night whn thbe tbrough freight express train, wetboand, on the Fitcbburg railroad, ran into a pasI egor train standing en the at bound traek at West Cambridge lJunetion telescopinga the rear ar, killing six persons outright and injuring nearly forty others three of whom are reported to have sines died. ,Pasenger train No. l i, due to leave Boston at 10l p. n., started on time. When West Cambridge Junction wee reled the engineer found It eceessary, owing to the dense fog, to ran eloe to the crossover in order to ee if be bad the right of way from the signal tower. While standing near the eroseover the eopress freight train came thundering along, and j as the passenger train started to eroa to the Watertown braneb, the freight train erashed into the rear car of she passenger train with the renlft above described. When the engine strnok the rear car it en tered It like a wedge, splltting 1t In two parts, eaheb of whichl fell outward upon the track. The whole root of the ear lodged on the top of the locomotive. The recoil from the collision drove the heavily loaded freight ears back, and although the two eare nearest the engine were not Injared, ten or twelve care behind them were emabhed into kindling wood. The aers were piled upon each other in isdis.crbable eosluelos, completely blocking both trasek for folly a hbndred yards. As soon as the accaldent occurred word wae dispstehed to the varlon police s.a tions in Boston, lonerville sad Cambridge. esking them to send esurgeoses to the scene. The relief and wreaking trains o arriving as the scene found four of the bodies re lmoved from the debris ond laid out in the WeIt tambridge passenger station. They were removed so undertakers. as were the Ladiee of two others recovered later, by one o'elock this morning all the visible bodies had been removed from the wreck, anud the wounded cared for by willing hands, On the reer end of the fill-fated ar a man's legs were dangling. The trunk was found a quarter of a mile down the track. The pusetnger ears other than the rest one were not very much injured, but the shock to tho oceuosate was only a little lea severe than that eastained by those in the last ear. As soon as the crash came frantic men and women rushed about in a purpose:ese way, shrieking and grossing. Flames soon Dogma to bhres from the wrecked relht cars. The lire department soon put out the are. The work of resoue thon began. One by one the bodies were brought io and plaesd son thodepot foor, tangled by the erash of timber, scalded by steam and blackened by fre, they presented a sikening appearance. The aroans of the injured and the a-ese of those searehing for mi.sing friends and relstives added to the horrors of the scene. Most of those on the psUsener train were residents of planes on the line of the Watertown braseh and were nearly all working people.

THE COfl~QUERING HERO. mast Crowds Surge Around Corbett, the BIruiser. ATILATA, Ga., Sept. 1.-'The Corbett spe cial train left Birmingham yesterday morn ing and at every station was given an ova tion. It was not until the train reached Tallapooes that the discovery was made that Manager Brady bad been left behind. Corbest ws scheered most heartily at all the steps. After the train left Tallapoosa the champion said: "I can always see a look of disappointment in the people's faces.

When the train reached Atlanta the throng was on large that it was with diul ealty the train was run in the depot with oat killing a lot of people. When Corbett got off there was a general rush made for him, and he got tangled up in the crowd and was crushed to the ground. It was with difloulty that he got into the building close by without being crushed to death.

Indiana Promraiee to Stand by the Men Who Were Nominated at Chicago. North Carollsa Safe Beyond the Leats Doubt-Onutsiders Speak oMpefully of Now ork,. Naw Yo. Sept 11.--H. P. Sheeran, seers - tery of the national democratic committee, bas been collecting the reports from Indi ans, his own state, and is very well satis ded with the result. *"' he democrats of Indiana are united," he says. "There are no feeltion in the party there. All Indiana demoerats are working together with en thuemese and energy. I am confident in my expectation that we will carry the state for Cleveland and Stevenson, and my con fidenee inoreasos daily as the campaign progresses." Speaking of the force bill sargestions of President Harrison in his letter of accepltane, Beeretary tiheerin said: "It seems to me that no line of republican aempaigning could be more unpopular and obnoxious to the people than this. I be lieve that the conntry is so determinedly opposed to force bill methods that it will net tolerate any proposition to inaugurate them directly or by indirection." Ex-Congressman Sowden, of Allentown, Ps., who was at headquarters, said: "it seems to me that the general outlook for enacese was never better than now. It seems that the New York demoeracy is as equally determined as the democracy of other tates, and that in the end we can expect perfect unity in the ranks of the party here as elsewhere, and with a har monious organization we must be success ful. All depends upon what New York does. My opinion is that she is the pivotal state. As she goes so will go the naston. I bhave no doubt but that the democracy of New York will fully appreeiate the great re sponsibility that rests with her, and that she will contribute her share toward effeet ing the triumphant election of our ticket. The south w.ll be solid for the party." Col. W. 1. JBlockwell, of Durham. N. C., a state over which the republicans are wast ing much expectations, recently wrote fo a friend in this city that the third party ex citement was beginning to subside, and he added: "I am very well posted about the state, and we will carry it for Cleveland and Stevenson by a larger majority than Cleve land did before. You know that I am never enthusiastic. The whole'south is coming into line. I feel that we will carry the whole country this time by a larger ms jority than even the most enthusiastic ever thought. I never saw people so thoroughly aroused in my life as they are here now in the old north state. I hope to come to New York soon, but in any case I will certainly be on hand at Washington to see Cleveland and Stevenson inaugurated next March." A statement in line with the foregoing came from Chairman M. E. Carter. of the executive committee in the Ninth congres sional district of North Carolina. He said: "1 am confident that the third-party move ment has seen its best days in North Caro Isa. The death of Col. Yolk was certainly a fatal blow to that movement. Since they held their convention some weeks ago in Raleigh and put out their tickets it has be some manifest to all thinking people that the movement is an utter failure, and men who formerly co-operated with the' move ment are now denying that they were ever in sympathy with It. I feel certain that by the day of election the movement will have been a thing of the past, and that we shall carry the state by our oldtirae majority. Oar people are alarmed at the prospect of the onsctment of the force bill law should the republicans come in power, and for thire time being at least they will lay aside all differences and stand together in opposition to the bill. bhould the republicans succeed and the force bid tIcome a law, our property inter ests would suffer a great shock, and we would not hope to bare further investments of northern cavital among us. This is not mere politics for the oesas:on; we have tried republioan role in the state in the reconstruction. We saw our state debt in creased from a few to several dozen mil lions, )Our credit was utterly prostrated and destroyed, uand the republicans were unable to show anything in the way of pubire improvements from the proceeds of the bond, they pretended to sell. Under democratic rule we have restored the credit of the state, re-established oar free sehools, and the state has attained a degree of prosperity hitherto unknown to it. Do we like Cleveland? Yes. We know him to be honest, and he is the first president sines the war who has shown the least eoiisidera lion for our section." PLOT TO G(i. INDIA)NA. j It Is Isposed by the People's Party Organ It ildianaspotia. 'IslsriAi'OLs, Inad.. Sept. IL--The Non comrforrllre.. the organ of the people's party, has exposed a republicn sobeme to carry Indiana. The apportionment for legislature and coiigressiortal purposes, or the gerrymander, as it is called, is to be set a.id, by the republicans. It has been so decided by those who want it done and those who have the power of doing it. 'I he firet staep was taken yesterday at New Css tie, whent a Olsuit to test the matter was en tered I.e ore Judase Hady. If the appor tionment can be overthrown there is some chance of the revubllcans carryinrg tse next legislature. 'The achemre is to elect C. W.

Shelter for the P'asengers of the Cholera iteanese lteslsted, NMaw Yors, Fopt. 11.--T'he first oabin pas sengers of the itugia and the second cabin passengers of the Normania were ordered removed to Fire island to-day on board the steamer Cephas. Health Officer Jen kins sent a dispatch to Gov. Flower, saying be had taken possession of Fire Island, that he had matters under control, and believed be would ixe successfnl in keeping out the disease. Its said it had been stopped on the Moravia and checked on the Itugia and the Normania, and the new eases on the Heandia were being removed as fast as they developed. 'The Wyoming is not definitely known to be infected, but will be held until the authe authorities are satisfied of her condition. 't'he I.a Champagne, from iavre and Cherbourg. and the Aurania, from Liverpool, arrived this morning with clean brlls of health. 'The number of new oases and deaths is not large, the Heandia being the only one to present further developments. Marie Jan - owitz, aged two and a half years, Annie Olsen, aged eight, and Malke Merski, aged 13 years, were taken iii to-day and removed to rwinburne island. 'There was only one death, that of Theodore Olsen, a three year-old child, who was taken ill at six o'clock this morning, and died at eight. 'There was another death on board the Scandia, but it was not from cholera, Mar zinia Bursa, a nursing infant, being taken off by marasmnus. The sale of lire Island for quarantine purposes has created great excitement there. People from Islip and Babylon sent a special guard of twenty deputies to keep the cholera ptlents firom landing. 'l hey surrounded the health ofliesre and made violent demonstrations against I). H. Sam mis. who sold the island to the state for $21)0,00o. hammis, however, turned the island over to the health authorities. l'he local board of health also protested, and their symrathizers decided to bid defiance to law. As it grew dark men who had been concealed behind buildings be gan to move about as if more certain of concealing their identity. The health department people were divided into squads. When the Cephas arrived off the island no one could be found to pilot her across the bay, and she had to turn back. Capt. Charles Wickes, of the life-asving station, had been engaged to bring the ves set in, but later refused, saying he had been threatened with discharge if he did. Presi dent Wilson, of the board of health, offered Wickes a better job if he lost his present Ione, and be agreed to bring the steamer over the bar. When the Cophas appeared, however, Wickes again refused, and it was evident he had been bulldozed. Will Take No Emigrants. Loxnox, Sept. 11.-A telegram was re ceived here by the agent of the Associated press from the Liverpool office of theGnion line stating that in consequence of Presi dent Harrison's circular no emigrants will be taken after the sailing of the steamer Nevada on Wednesday next.

Political Troubles in Which the Mexican Soldiery Got Worsted. EL PAso, Tex., Sept. 1L--The trouble be tween the Indians and the government at '1 omaache, in the state of Sonora, contin ues. Election troubles in the same district are occurring about the same time. A po litical party under the leadership of Cruz OChvez has been organized and (Gen. tanjel, with the Eleventh battalion of infantry, marched against them. Arriving at Tloma sache the troops were surprised by the rebels and several killed and the entire staff made prisoners, and the battalion dies persed with heavy lose. The government has a strong force in the country but the rebels have the advantage. The latest reports have it that the rebel force in over 600 strong, and the government had sent over t)0u men against them and met with signal defeat. On Wednesday last Captain Martinez and A;N) men left Chihua hua for the soeen of hostilities. About 1c0 miles west of Chihuahua the regulars en countered the rebels, iesultin. in, the loss of Captain Martinez and fifty soldiers. while the riebels came out without the lots of a single men. l,ast night two companies of government troops left Juarez for the scene of action. 'The government is doing alt it can to suppress th'o revolt, lut the Indians in the mountains have put to rout every advance of regulars without loss or capture, and now hold several ,f theim as hostage. Among those held as iro,stages are Gen. Itanjol and staff. It is feared this a. but the beginning and the success ,of the Indians will eneourag'e the dissipated element in Mexico.

PRICE COMMITS SUICIDE, Convicted of Killing His Unole, He Next Poisons Himself in His Cell. Alleged Motive for Cunninghani'l Murder Brought Out on the TriaL toary of a Crime, an Eseape and a Bseesp ture Which Is bhroeded in Some Mystery. Birrrs, Hept. 11.-.(ipeJial. ]-Obarles (1. Price committed suicide in a sell of the county jail early this morning. Last De cember Price was ar rested for the murder of his uncle. . J. Cunningham, is the streets of i.tte. 'The ease motive was always a mystery. boring the trial yester day, in his defense, which was very weak, Price claimed that OCnnnlgbam had cheated him in a number of business trans actions, and also that he had been the cause of his wife's unfaithfulness. It was dreveloled, however, that Mr. and Mrs. I'rio had never been legally married. A document was produced, signed by each, the man and the woman, agreeing to live with each other as husband and wife, but there were no witnesses to this document. Mrs. Price herself was not put on the stand. Witnesses for the prosecution tes tillfed that Cunningham had seemed as fa miliar with Mrs. Price as was Price him self, sod that Price had apparently not objected. ''he trial was concluded yester day afternoon, and at 11 o'clock last night the jury rendered a verdict of murder in the second degree, with a recommendation for mercy. At six o'clock this morning Price was found in his cell in an unconscious condi tion. He had taken a big done of poison.
