Thorne and George Shinn were started back to California tonight, in charge of two Cali fornia officers. They were heavily ironed and both shackled to the seats of the railway coach in which they were to make the journey. They are the pair arrested in Chicago a week ago after the period of liberty succeeding their daring escape from San Quentin prison in 1887. Shinn took his return coolly, but Thorne, who was under sentence for life, seemed broken-hearted. He protested earnestly that since his escape he had lived honestly and would have continued to do so. The California officers suspect that the two men have been concerned in some of tbe many robberisß which occurred 6ince they escaped. Shinn and Thorne deny this emphatically. Thorne says a convict who was in prison with them, and whose term has since ex pired, saw them in Chicago a while ago, and notified'the San Quentin officials. This, he says, is how their capture came about. A CALL FOR TROOPS •» To Suppress a Race Riot in Coffee County, Georgia.

HE SPEAKS AT WOOSTER AND MASSILLON. Large Crowds Edified by the Sterling Champion of Democracy—A Pleasant Chat With Major McKinley. Wooster, 0,, Oct. 22. —Governor Hill left Canton for Wooster this morning, arriving at the latter place at noon. At every station along the route a large crowd gathered and cheered Governor Hill as the train passed. At Massillon, Major McKinley, wno was on his way to Smithviile, boarded the train and chat ted with the governor until he reached his destnation. On his. arrival at Wooster an immense throng crrwded the station, and the city was in gay hol iday attire. Governor Hill addressed a •monster open air mass meeting of eight thousand people in the afternoon. He spoke at length on the tariff question, and also on the elections bill. Regard ing the latter, he said nothing had taken place in any part of the south to justify the exercise of the doubtful power of congress to regulate elections. He de nounced the force bill "as a dangerous exercise oi constitutional authority, a menace to our theory of government, and an insult to the people of the states." Continuing, he said: ''The states have always regulated their own con gressional elections. They should be permitted to continue to do so. The re fusal of such a privilege is a policy of force and partisanship. A mere recital of the details of the proposed measure is sufficient to make it execrable. The tendency of such legislation would be to provoke a conflict between the federal and state officials, and race prejudices would be engendered at the south. This force bill » a vicious attack upon the re publican form of government. Those who affect to think the people do not understand this issue, and are not aroused to its importance, mistake the signs of the times and the character and temper of the American people. In conversation with Major McKinley to day, he told me that it was the inten tion of the present Republican congress to pass the torce bill before its expira tion, no matter which party was suc cessful in the coming elections. If they do not carry the next election, you can rest assured they will not pass the bill." The governor addressed another au dience this evening at the opera house, and later left for Massillon.

An Incident of the Terrible Railway Dis aster on the Cinoinnati & Southern— The Trainmen Slept. Cincinnati, Oct. 22.—From the story of railroad meu who arrived here to night, it appears that the wreck on the Cincinnati Southern last night was due to trie carelessness of the crew of the freight train. This train was instructed to wait at Sloan's Valley until passenger trains 9 and 5 had passed. The wait was long, and the crew of the freight train went to sleep. Engineer Pimlott awoke just after No. 9 had passed, and assuming that it was No. 5, and that the road was clear, aroused the crew and the train went on. The approach to both ends of the tunnel is sharply curved, and within one hundred feet of the mouth of it the trains met. Only the sleeper and one coach on the passenger train were saved, the train hands and passengers pushing them back up the track. Flames started a few minutes after the collision, and the wooden lining of the tunnel is still burning tonight. A brave man, whose name was not learned, hearing the cries of George Long in the baggage car, seized an axe, cut a hole in the car and rescued Long. In the express compart ment of the car, was L. P. Ruffner, United States express messenger. The unknown hero worked hard to cut a way for Ruffner to escape, although the flames were darting all about him. The effort was futile, and Ruffner finally shouted from his prison to go away and save himself, to cay good bye to his family and tell them his would-be res cuer did all a man could to save his life. The unknown hero staggered put of the tunnel with his hair and clothing badly scorched, and felbdown in a faint. None of the men in the excitement thought of learning his name, but it is believed he is a railroad man. Others of the train men had wonderful escapes. It is mirac ulous that any of the passengers escaped without injury. SOPHIE SEARCH. A Spirit Tells Her Who Led Her Hus band Astray.

Boulanger Prints an Account of His Personal Expenses. • (Jrand Duke Nicholas in a Critical Condi tion—Prominent British Club Men Arrested. Associated Press Dispatches.; ft London, Oct. 22. —The parliamentary election in the Eccles division of Lan cashire, today, resulted in a victory for the Gladstonians. Roby, the Liberal candidate, received 4901 votes,and Eger ton, Conservative, 4696. In the preced ing election the Liberal candidate re ceived 3995 and tbe Conservative 4277. The News says the result of the Eccles election will make the demand for the dissolution of parliament louder than ever. The Chronicle says the election was fought on the eight-hour and not on the Irish question, and that the result is a great triumph for the non-unionists. The Post says when the real moment for a national decision is reached, tbe double issue by which Eccles has won will be a very small item in the general result. The Times admits that tbe result was due to the return of the Gladstonians to their allegiance, coupled with Roby's acceptance of tho eight-hour principle. The Standard says: Is is futile to deny that the result of the Eccles elec tion disappoints the unionists. We regret that the conservatives main tained their ground. They failed to emulate the Gladstonians in securing new votes. BERLIN BUDGET. Latest Gossip at the German Capital— Yon Moltke Honored.
