Fireman Scalded, Passengers Bruised,

Switch May Have Been Tampered
WithFlyer Passed Only Half an

D&shing into an open switch near
Maple Plain, twenty-four miles west Of
Minneapolis, Great Northern local train
No. 14, coming from Fargo, was de
railed at 7:30 o'clock last evening and
{assenger and train crew had a miracu
ous escape from death. Altho the train
was traveling at a rate of from thirty
five to forty miles an hour, it is thought
that no fatal injuries resulted from the
accident. The smoking car was de
stroyed by flames, while a passenger
coach, nearly filled with passengers at
the time of the accident, was partially
Lee Fairbanks, a Minneapolis travel
ing man, was a passenger on the
wrecked train, and arrived in Minne
apolis hatless and coatless at 10:30 last
night. "We were moving along at a
forty clip when the crash came/' he
said. I was sitting in the smoking
car, directly back of the baggage car,
and at the time of the accident I hap-
ened to be standing in the aisle. I
an awful noise in front, and the
car began to bump. Kealizing what
had happened and remembering the ad
vice of an old railroad friend, I lay
down in. the aisle, face down. The- car
seemed to bump over the ties for about
five minutes and people were running
over me and screaming. The gas tank
in the front of the car burst and the
flames came up immediately after the
car stopped. In some way I got out
of the car, and then, remembering that
I had left my grip inside, I went back
to get it.
"People were scrambling thru the
windows in their efforts to get out and
when I looked ahead and saw the bag
gage car directly across the tracks, the
locomotive, in the ditch, and the ten
der demolished, I thought that there
must have been fatal accidents. An in
vestigation proved that aside from
scratches and bruises, all the passen
gers had escaped injury. The fireman
was pinned under the tender and se
verely scalded, but the engineer, who,
with the firemant stuck to his post,
turned on the airbrake and escaped
without a mark. A way-freight engine
from Delano came to the rescue, but it
was too late to save the smoking car.
It was burned and the first passenger
coach, which was pulled away by the
freight engine was half destroyed."
According to Mr. Fairbanks, Great
Northern No. 3 coast bound, had passed
over the tracks not more than half an
hour before the accident and it is his
opinion that the switch had been tamp
ered with. The engine of the wrecked
train was thrown into the ditch at the
side of the tracks, but did not turn
completely over. The tender was thrown
on its side and demolished.

Tqe iirst step would be the appoint

an enlargement and relative to the best
plans tp be followed. Then would prob
ably follow some recommendation by
the secretary of war. The next step
would be legislation carrying with it
appropriations for ttu purchase of ad
ditional land for the Fort Snelling
military reservation and for the erec
tion of new buildings. It might take
from four to five years to carry thru a
deal of magnitude. Eoughly speaking,
my idea would be for an appropriation
of $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 to enlarge
the post from a capacity of 1,800 men
to one of 3,600 men, and making it the
foremost military post in the land.

Early Days in*Wisconsin, When Frank
Developed Bill as a Humorist and
Bill Helped Frank to Become an
OratorIn Newspaper Work Once,
and in Politics.
'When I came to Minneapolis in the
spring of '86," said Frank M. Nye,
congressman-elect last night, "my
brother 'Bill' said to me: 'Frank,
you'll be congressman from some place
in or about Minneapolis in ten years.'
Bill missed it by just ten."
This is the way Mr. Nye answers the
question whether he is filling any
prophecy of childhood in becoming a
prospective congressman.
Congress always had some attrac
tive charms" admitted the, congress
man-elect, "but I don't remember that
any vilalge aunt or uncle or granfath
er ever felt any bumps on my head in
my early youth, and turning to the rest
of the group.in the village store uttered
any solemn prophecy concerning my fu
ture.. My brother Bill was a humorist,
so even my single prophecy from that
source may be regarded as a joke by
An Exceptional Honor.
"Yes. I think it is an exceptional
honor," Mr. Nye went on, "to repre
sent such a district as the fifth Minne
sota in congress. I think I would
rather serve in the house of congress
than in any other legislative body in
the country, and I hope to be able to
represent the district long enough to
make valuable friends and build up an
influence that great body. I don't
expect to do it all at onee. I am old
enough to know that it will not come
all at once, and that no one man is
likely to be called on to save the na
I remember I felt that way once,

rr Hudson,secretarwhof the treasurtime under
Shaw, lived in Hudson while I was
editor and owner of the Hudson Star
and Times. In tho summer of '78 he
wcntJ-'to Europe and hired me to run
the paper and write the editorials. I
labored and sweat over those pearls of
thought fand felt I was saving the na
tion with every issue and leading_ the
masses to their great good. To Keep
his hand in, Taylor wrote interesting
letters every week, two or 'throe col
umns at a clip, and they were printed
in the Star and Times. There was a
'-fat, greasy painter in a shop next to
the--Star and Times who used to come
in every day and go thru the exchanges
and incidentally read our great sheet.
I often tried to extract an opinion
from him on my earnest editorials, but
he was dense. One day, tho, after he
had gone thru everything, including
the Stajr and Times,, and while I was
busy with^a particularly deep editorial,
he threw*-the Star and Times down on
the floor and remarked 'Why don't
Taylor write longer "letters! They're
the only thing in the blamed rag.' He
marched out and left me alone to my
better thoughts."
Mr. Nye ara 0atc|r.ri
The congressman-elect came" along
with a gesture here. He took from be

Fulfilling "Bill's" Prophesy.
"How did I happen to get into the
game this time? Well, that's a longer
story. When I was younger I had
quite a well-defined congressional am
bition. I-
believe they call such things
bees now. I was responsible for a
young and growing family, tho, and for
a time I was obliged to forego the sat
isfying of the ambition. I had to feed
the babes and let the bee go. When
I came to Minneapolis from Hudson,
Wis., in the spring of '86, I was hardly
widely known. But that fall there was
a hot campaign for the governorship
between the late A. R. McGill, who was
elected, and Dr. Ames, who has held
office in Minneapolis several times.
Frank Davis and Judge Jamison, who
were running the campaign here, found
had made a few speeches and they
aBked me to go out for McGill. That
was my start in Minnesota politics.
Davis became county attorney and.was
later succeeded by Jamison and I fol

"When I left the county attorney's
office, I thought I was out of politics
so far as being a candidate was con
cerned. Two years ago, tho,-I had an
attaek from the 'bee,' but beat him
out by reasoning that I could not afford
to^ give -up my business. ThiB time
things came around in such a way that
I-decided to take a shot at it I want

stand with me, and they certainly did.
I knew, that if they didn't, the fbee'
would be killed for all time, and that

I took no chances but read it. Any

made another cigar gesture. The thing

one to ask him if he, was an orator in
those days.
"No, I didn't develop as an orator
then, or in a college debating society,"
he said. "The reason is simple. I
never went tP college. I don't know
that I was a born orator, even tho I
was born in Maine. I guess it cam

He seized the oppor
tunity to cut in with witty remarks
until he became fairly 'smart.' He got
a reputation a3 a humorist by prac
tising on me and I had the honor of
being his brother.
I went to the^,common schools and
had two or throe terms in the academy
and a little collegiate institute in the
high school class. When I studied law,
I kept alive by teaching school. When
I was admitted to the bar in the spring
of '78, I was studying and working
in the office of Moses E. Clapp and his
brother, N. H. Clapp. I don't know
tho, that the fact that I worked in his
office or that he came from Hudson
ever made Mose' United States senator
from Minnesota.
vWe boys were born and
bred in the party... I cast, my first
presidential vote for Hayes. I believe
that Theodore Roosevelt sounds the
keynote of the republicanism of the
present. The party is and has been the
progressive party and must continue so
or die." Its strength is in meeting and
dealing with the living questions of the
Three Great Questions.
'There are three great questions at
the present time: Law enforcement, the
control and regulation f trusts and
combines, and the tariff problem. The
control and regulation of the combines
ot the country present, a question that
must be met squarely and fairly dealt
with. The republican party is the par
ty that can and will do it.
I believe in the principle of pror
tection. I believe also, however, that
the country needs and demands a re
vision of the tariff, and that it will be
speedily revised by tho republicans, as
it should be.
"The enforcement of law is a great
question of the day. Laws should be

ecuted. A hopeful sign of the times is
that public, sentiment approves Presi

His Work In Congress.
"So far as it is in the power of one
man to work and faithfully serve his
district I intend to support these three
great questions of the present time.
I expect to see things accomplished
along these lines, for honest, hard
working representatives are laboring
for them. I shall enter upon my duties
with no inflated sense of importance.
There are 386 men in that wonderful
body, most of whom are experienced

With Leoncavallo and his music the
large audience at the Auditorium last
evening was evidently pleased. All
the advantages that a splendid orches
tra, well-trained and imbued with musi
cians' temperament, and singeTs Who
are in every sense artists, can give to a
composer, were enjoyed by this re
nowned Italian, whose opera', I Pag
gliaeci," has made him world-famous.
Most of the selections were from this
opera, from "La Boheme," and from
his latest work, "Roland di Berlino."
Leoncavallo's music is always techni
cally correct, modern in the intricacy
of its orchestration, and wholly Italian
in its spirit. He fully understands how
to contrast the witchery of violins with
the high flute treble, how to introduce
the wood wind, and when to rely upon
his bass viols, an instrument which in
his orchestration becomes really musi
The orchestra played the "Pagliac
ci' overture intermezzo as the opening
number with a true interpretation.
"Suite Anciennes," was delightful
with its unaffected^melodius movement.
"Gagharda," was followed by the
"Gavotta" of somewhat popular order,
with its beguiling grace and nicely
placed accent Eomonesca,'' the third
movement, had a minor flavor which off
set the

ment of "Yankee Doodle," and
"Away Down South in Dixie."

have and as only the Italians make,
and with th temperament that only
Italy engenders, the soloists of the com

rounded off each period they would i

were no seats in the hall and in some
of their rushes they nearly carried me

M. Peyra, the tenor, was introduced
by a "ballata" from "Eolando di Ber-

its great power. The great prologue
from "Pagliacci, now in the repertory
