time before Congress meets in the fall.
The President left the train immediately after

the railroad employes, newspaper men s|nd
others who greeted him. Then with Dr. Lam
bert he entered his carriage and went to the
White House. Marshal Palmer, of the District
of Columbia, and Assistant Secretary Barnes,
of the White House staff, -were at the station to

flicappointed because no- arrangements had been
made to have his special train stop here- to-day.
The following letter was dropped off at the station

Declares President Did Much to
Help Chicago.
Chicago, May 11.— sorrow that seemed to
oppress Mayor Dunne until yesterday had dis
appeared to-day. The face of Chicago's chief
executive was full of emiles, be walked more
briskly, and his eyes were brighter than any
lone had pec-n them for the last two weeks.
"The strike atmosphere has very materially
cleared," he said. "I attribute this to President
Roosevelt more than to any other Individual.
I indorse everything the President said yester
day to the laboring men who submitted to him
a memonniaJ. 1 indorse all that be said at last
right's banquet. '
'President Roosevelt Is a great, strong;, brave
man. }>■■ has backbone. What he said has al
ready had wonderful weight with the public.

peaceful citizens, the law abiding element, that
the State was behind the city and the national
government behind the .State, ill ready to act
If necessary, has done much to help Chicago In
this emergency."

7 : of the United Mine Workers,
The President is right. He never uttered truer
vrords than when he said that the laws had to be
obeyed by rich and poor alike. While the Presi
dent favors unionism, he will not tolerate law
lessness under the guise of unionism.
K. EL Glass, business agent of the Sheet Metal
Workers' Union, said:
No true union man enn take offence at what
th* President said. I believe that he, as Presi
dent, la doinj? more for trade unions than any
other occupant thi- White House ever had.

Bl^lloj^ ON OIL TRUST.
Episcopal Congress Addresses Along
"Tainted Money" Lines.
The recent controversy in the Consreß.itional
Church over the gift of John r>. Rockefeller of
$100,000 to the Foreign .Missions fund was re
called vividly to those who last night heard the
Rev. Dr. William H. Van Allen, of i: ston, tell
the Episcopalian Church Congress, in Brooklyn,
that the Church wanted none of the wealth ob
tained by the flotation of such enterprises as
the so-called Shipbuilding Trust. Again the
discussion as to whether or not churches should
accept money taken from trust profits was in
jected into the congress when Bishop Coadjutor
Alexander Macay-Smith, of Pennsylvania, con
demned the Standard Oil and its methods.
The addresses of both these clergymen evoked
spirited applause. The topic under diseusrion
was "The Church and Public Brig:indu-j<?." On
the platform at Association Hall sat Bishop
Burgess, of the Diocese of Long Island, and
other clergy and in the large audience were
prominent laymen from all over the United
"The principles of Christianity ar. in their
last analysis, simply the principles of fn.ir play,"
eaid Bishop Mackay-Smith, "They are founded
on the conviction that that which hinders the
progress of the world, In the long run, is human
and human selfishness, generally In some
subtle form which, for i ■ ition of
humanity, clothes Itself In line ■ I pop

greatest monopoly which one can us.- for il
lustration, that by which one of the most
ful discoveries of ih>- l; : si century, and o ■
vtously Intended by Providence for the benefit
of the country at large, has passed Into
p'-lfK-h hands, through unscrupulous manipu
lation, viz.. the control of mineral oil. Men may,
and do, defend the Beries ot tri'-ks by which

the quality of the article, as well as it

th" public. Such argument, however, Is all In
vain, for it can be met and answered by the
simple statement that the methods und<
servation are such as always, In the l"M^ run.

Dr. Smith was followed by I >r. ]■:. r t.. Gould.
ex-('ity Chamberlain, promimnt In i?.<- Clti
zens Union, and a possible candidate for Mayor
on the anti-Tammany tick--t this fall. "The
history of 'Kraft' is marked by three distinct
stages," s.-ii'l Dr. Gould. "The first we may call
anarchical. The second was 'syndicated,' and
tli*- ii:;..i stage has !• ome Imperialized." !)<•

Th<- boss reserves all, or nearly all for him
self. This condition lia« been made possible
by that co centratlon in political machinery
which has developed v. ',\h concentration In in
dustrial iiffai/s and Is n striking characteristic
of th<- age. Special privilege which needs public
sanction is easlesi and most surely arranged
between Individuals. This age has Its fetish In
the- "economy of concentration," and here is
our- of the practical outcomes, a trust desires
franchise privileges for which it Is not williiiK'
to pay proper compensation. By all means the
easiest way Is to contribute liberally to a cam
paign fund, of which no accounting is bad, and
thus lay the victorious machine under obliga
tions to secure what it wants.
A solid Justification of its verity is the rapid
accumulation of wealth In the case of city bosses
witla otherwise Insignificant means of material
Such diversion of public wealth, means an in
sidious and effective perversion of public morals.
The very foundations of democracy are under
mined. In modern Anglo-Saxondom the church
was the parent of democracy, and, consequently,
there should be ever maintained a fostering care.
The church, as the natural exponent of morality
and right living, cannot escape responsibility
while this '•graft 1 n >r" process i.« poing on.
The church must take its place as a correlative
part of organized democracy, and through puiplt
exposition and parochial philanthropy seek to
establish strong currents of lntluence. If pood
people keep out of politics because it is a 'low
business" it will always be a "low business." Th*»
church should seek to foster the proper point of
view, which Is. that the direction of human af
fairs in society through the various agencl
government with a view of attaining the best
pond of yourself and your neighbors is one of the
highest of human preoccupations.
"Cultured people have reached that degree of
civilization when they are against using su

Jackson Crowded with Marshals and
Prom 'wen t Prisoners.
Jackson, Miss, May 11.— The Norvelle Hotel
to-night la an armed c;im|>. On the lower floor
are • .•■ headquarters of the Law and Order
L»'nj-u<» of Mississippi, composed of the law
abiding citizens of Jackson and its vicinity, who
have determined that the disgrace of whitecap
plng la to be wiped from the State forever. The
rooms on the upper floor are filled with the al
leged whltecappers. .i" have been arrested by
federal marshal*, and who are under the guard
of federal ••fllcials. Any attempt to intimidate
witnesses or to effect the rescue of a single al
ltr(je:l whltecapper would precipitate trouble. The
ter.cion is Intense, but lute to-night there is no
Iwdk-ution that any tt*W»fvl 1., rwCuelany of the
men cnilt-r i:rr-»»t ".!ll be made.
The lawless element, which hns been partici
pating In the whltecap outrages throughout the
State for the last two years, seem to be thorough
ly cowed by the action taken by the federal gov
ernment, and almost all of those who have ever
been rom-erned In the outrages, and who were
not lndlcter! by the federal grand Jury last week,
have left town for parts unknown. Although
many of the men under arrest are high in social
and political standing there is a tendency to al
low the law to take Its course.
All day long th. federal marshals have been
arriving In Jackson with th-'ir prisoners. On
Monday, when the rases are to be called. It la
expected that all V. .■» .'•."»<> indicted men will have
been brought Into Jackson. Already the hotels
and boarding houses of the city are crowded
with them. More than four hundred witnesses
have been summoned and many of these are
already on the scene The members of the i.iv.
and Order League, who are armed, say that their
only object is to see that the law la allowed to
take its course, and that any one attempting to
intluein-e the witnesses when they are brought
in will be summarily dealt with.
The detectives say that they have sufficient
evidence to bring about the hanging of many of
those who are under arrest, and that they be
lieve that no guilty man will escape.
This is the first time that members of the
st.it.- Legislature and others holding nigh pub
lic positions have been placed on trial for white
capping. It la expected that the trials will take
up at least a month. The search for the white
cappers has been most thorough, and they have
been apprehended in biding places all over Mis

The train carried a number of well known men
and women, most of whom escaped with slight
Injuries. Among those were Mr. and Mrs. James
P.. Tfiidel, of Pittsburg. the latter the daughter
of United States Senator Knox; Mrs. A. J. Barr.
wife of the proprietor of "Th? Pittsburg Post."
and her two daughters, and Samuel S. Shubert.
a theatrical manager of 'New- York. Victor
L. Crabbe, son-in-law of Robert Pitcalrn. of
Pittiburg, died In the Harrisburg Hospital at
nocn, a few mir.utes before his father-in-law
reached his bedsh'e. Mr. Shubert was reported
to be badly injured, but the others were only
slightly hurt.
The wrecked train was the s?cond section of
the Cleveland and Cincinnati express, ieaving
Philadelphia at 11:0." o'clock la?t night. It con
sisted of a corr.b'nation baggage and smoking
car, one day coach and six sleepers.
There are various stories of how the wreck
cccuired, but a3 nearly as can be learned the
facts a»v> es follov.-s:
About 1:40 o'clock the engine on an east noun I
freight train was flagged by the cm cf a shift
ing engine ahead on the same track. The en
gineer quickly put on his air brakes and the
train, an unusually long one, came to a sud
den stop. The strain on the air valves was a
s?vere one. and a connection in the middle oi"
the train blew out. This caused the train to
"buckle" and several cars fell over on the
passenger tracks.
Just a3 this happened the Cleveland express
came thundering up and "side swiped** tßto
wreck. The express was stopped within Us
own length, and the third sleeper was opposit ;
the wrecked cars. Before any one could leave
the passenger train, which was rot badly dam
aged, a few slight explosions occurred, and
then there was one great flash and roar that
shook the earth as a carload of dynamite in th-;
freight train went off. The v.hole affair oc
curred within a few seconds.
A scene of horror followed. The passenger
cars and some of the freight cars instantly tool;
fire. As the reverberation of the terrific ex
plosion died away in the hills across the Sus
quehar.na River, the agonizing cries of the in
jured could be heard. Men and women came
tumbling and climbing from the car windows
or crawled from under the wreckage. No SSH
for the moment seemed to know what to do.
and many of the passengers, momentarily seize<l
with terror, ran wildly about the fields on the
north side of the railroad or waded into the
■hallow waters of the river which parallels th?
railroad on the south. Realizing their safety
and the danger still threatening others, th
frightened passengers turned in and began th*
rescue of the living.
As they approached the wreck another ex
plosion occurred, which sent them scurrying
away. Fearing that the entire freight train
mi«lu be loaded with, dynamite- no- one -dared
go near the wreck. Finally the railroad men
who knew the contents of the burning freight •
train led the way, and the uninjured passengers
folio-red. jm
The work of rescue was at first slow, and it
seemed as though the dimes would envelop the
entire express train before those . who were
pinned beneath the heavy wreckage could be
freed. Everywhere there came cries for help.
Scores Of those who were trapped In their sleep
ing berths or pinioned under wreckage were
taken out and laid in the field, badly hurt.
Soon the advancing fire drove the reseuer3
back as they were about to take others from
the wreck, and the unfortunates, men and
women, were soon enveloped in the flames.
The cries of the dyin? were plair.ly heard, but
nothing could be done for them. An alarm of
fire was sent in, but when the firemen reached
the scene the flames had done their work, so
far as the victim!* in th^'wreck were concerned
The entire train was consumed by flro.
After the victims in the wreck were beycr.-l
human aid more attention was paid to the In
jured, who presented a pitiable sight as they
lay in the fieKl or on the bnnks of the rtver.
With the firemen came a corps of physician*
from the city. As quickly as the injured were
temporarily relieved of pain from burns or other
injuries they were placed on special trains and
troll enrs and rushed to the hospital h?re.
Several hundred railroad laborers were m the
spot within an hour, and by daybreak their
number hnd been increased to a thousand. It
was a grewsome task for the railroad men. Not
one whole body was found in the wreck. Either
j«n arm or a leg or all four limbs wen burneJ
oft the trvr.k. and in several cases only portion!*
cf the trunks were found. Ten charred bod!<»3
were found ximlfr one Pullman car. It is th£
belief of the railroad cfTicials that if the explo-
Sinn had not -xcirred there probably wouM
nave been no loss of life.
