RAILROAD HORRORS. Three Great Disasters in One Day. Two Trains Come Together in a Tunnel. The Wreck Takes Fire and the Cars Are Consumed. Six Lives Lost in This Disaster-Two in Another and Many Persons Severely Injured. Associated Press Dispatches. 1 Cincinnati, Oct. 22.—A disastrous col lision occurred at 4:40 o'clock this morn ing on the Cincinnati Southern railway, in a tunnel a quarter of a mile north of Sloan's Valley station, between a freight and a passenger train. The latter left Cincinnati at Bp. m. Another passen ger train left Cincinnati an hour earlier. Both these were held at Somerset, Ky., two hours or more on account of a freight wreck south of that place, last night. When the track was clear the foremost Cincinnati train started out from Somerset first. It met and passed safely a north-bound freight. Then the other passenger started out. When the first Cincinnati train passed out, the crew of the freight ap peared to overlook the fact that another was to follow, and they pulled out and started northward. Less than a quarter of a mile away they entered a tunnel, one-sixth of a mile long. In this the most hopeless place trainmen ever met death, the en gines of the two trains dashed into each other, and the cars piling up, took fire and a horrible conflagration resulted. Fortunately the passenger train had not entirely gone into the tunnel when the crash came, and so the sleepers, which did not leave the track, served as a means of escape for the passengers. All of the cars except three sleepers were burned. The list of killed foots up as follows : John Pilmott, engineer. Fireman Welsh, Somerset, Ky. Fireman Gould, Ludlow, Ky, Brakeman John E. Montgomery, Albany, N. Y. Postal Clerk C. L. Doegen, Cincin nati, O. The injured trainmen are: Engineer Pat Taylor, Somerset, Ky.; Postal Clerk J. G. Gayle, Cincinnati, O.; Baggage Master John R. Long, Newport, Ky., all seriously hurt. The injured passengers are: W. D. Wheeler, New Orleans; Miss Ollie Getty, Dayton, Term.; Arch Murphy, Madison county, Ind. The injuries sustained by the three last named are slight. A SERIOUS TAIL-EN DER. A Rock Island Engine Crashes Into a Union Pacific Passenger Train.

Nbw Yobk, Oct. 22.—The biennial convention of the Fenian brotherhood, at Paterson, N. J., closed last night. The session lasted three days. More than 200 delegates were present, repre senting all sections of the United States.

Hereafter all trans actions of the brotherhood will be open, and the public will be free to attend all meetings. In his report the general secretary at tributed the disruptions and disasters to Irish organizations during the past two years to the fact that men with sel fish personal ends had, through the misuse of the secrecy clause in the con stitution, forced themselves into power. A special committee was appointed on the future of the organization. In their report it recommended that the Fenian brotherhood hereafter be an open organization; that military and naval companies be organized, and that 90 per cent, of the receipts be devoted to this purpose, the aDmpanies to be known as "Fenian volunteers," and be held in readiness to assist the United States in case of a foreign war. The following council was elected: George Smith, chairman; Captain Dris coll, John Dow ling, Francis Rea, B. O'Hara, Thomas Simpson, E. Whalen, James Barrett and Roderick J. Ryan.

A Claim for 20,000,000 Acres of Cali fornia Lands— Francisco Line to Be Completed in Three Years. Chicago, Oct. 22. —Judge Springer is authority for tbe statement that within three years a Santa Fe track between Moiave and San Francisco will be com pleted. With the building of this road, and the unfinished portion of the At lantic and Pacific between Sepulpa and Albuquerqul, there will be sprung one of the largest legal sensations of modern times. It is nothing less than a claim on the part of the Atchison to over 20, --000,000 acres of land, in what is now the richest part of California. The grant was conferred in 1866 by the government, on condition that the Atlantic and Pacific should build a road. It is also reported that the Atchison is building from Chad wick, Mo., to Memphis, in order to take its Kansas and Nebraska grain over the southern route. The completion of the gap between £1 Paso and San Angelo, will occur with the completion of the San Francisco line, and make the Atchi son line 160 miles shorter than the Southern Pacific to Galveston.

BACKWOODS BESTIALITY. A Hunter's Horrible Find in the Wilds of Virginia. Fredericksburg, Va., Oct. 22.—In formation from Spottsylvan ia county says: In the neighborhood of the peaks a few days ago, a gentleman while hunt ing in the backwoods, came near a mis erable hut, in which was known to have lived a family of negroes. The air was filled with a horrible stench. Buzzards sat around in the trees. On investigat ing, the bodies of two negro boys, in a decomposed state, were found in the hut. It seems that they had fought several days previous. One killed the other, while from a wound the other received death resulted. A child in the hut had a collar-bone broken, and was in a critical condition. Another male child, who was ill, was so cruelly bandaged by the woman who had been in charge that the little fellow was suffering horribly. The negroes in charge of the children have been ar rested.

Liberty, Mo., Oct. 22. —George Smith, of this place, while walking on the track of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railway near here, surprised four men at work engaged in loosening the rails. He informed the police, but the would be wreckers disappeared. They were evidently preparing to shift the rails in order to wreck a Burlington passenger train. Great excitement prevails over tbe discovery, and it is greatly increased by the result of the coroner's investiga tion into the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul wrack of yesterday, which proved that it also was accomplished by train wreckers. AU kinds oi Imported cheese at.H. Jevne's, WASHINGTON NOTES. Interesting News for Sweet Wine Men. Lack of Stamps Not to Cramp Their Business. New Small Treasury Notes Soon to Be Issued. Gold Medals Awarded to Gallant Life Savers—Pension Agents Must File New Bonds. Associated Press Dispatches. I Washington, Oct. 22.—One of the pro visions of the existing revenue law, is that the makers of sweet wines shall be allowed the use of grape bran dies free of tax for the purpose of for tifying their wines. These wines, how ever, are not to contain more than 2-1 per cent of alcohol after fortification. The commissioner of internal revenue is charged with the duty of transferring brandy to a bonded warehouse or dis tillery where it is made to wine. The proper execution of this law re quires a large number of new stamps, and the preparation of new regulations, but in view of the press of other work, it is impossible to procure a supply of stamps until after the Ist of December. By that time the vintage season will be past, and wine-makers will be precluded this year from all the benefits intended by the act. To provide against this, the commissioner has instructed the collect ors of San Francisco, New York and elsewhere to notify persons interested that he will consider applications to refund taxes paid on all spirits which may have been used in the forti fication of sweet wines, provided spirits so used and wines so fortified are such that no tax need have been paid on the spirits. The internal revenue officers have been supplied with proper stamps to attach to different packages. He has further instructed collectors that they may use special bonded warehouse stamps properly altered, in lieu of the regular stamps required by law, and which are to be issued hereafter. Encouraging Reports. Secretary Rusk said to a reporter to day that he was receiving encouraging reports of progress from J. H. Sanders, special agent in Great Britain, relative to the removal of British restrictions upon the importation of American live stock. Aid for Agricultural Colleges.

Gold Medals Awarded. The secretary of the treasury has awarded gold medals to members of the Evanston, Illinois, life-saving crew, for heroism in rescuing shipwrecked sea men last year. Small Treasury Notes. Treasurer Huston said today that he will have ready for issue by the Ist proximo, a large supply of one, two and five-dollar treasury notes, and that they will be used in the purchase of silver bullion, in order to meet as far as pos sible the present demand for notes of small denominations. Must Give New Bonds. The attorney-general of the interior department has expressed the opinion that all pension agents now in office are by the new pension law required to give new bonds. Pension Agent Barclay, at Pittsburg, has notified the department that he will not file a new bond, and Secretary Noble says he will be dis missed. " Silver Offerings. The offerings of silver to the treasury today, amounted to 1,274,000 ounces; the amount purchased 515,000 ounces, as follows: 15,000 ounces at $1.0925; 100,000 at $1.0939; 100,000 at $1.0940; 100,000 at $1.0943; 200,000 at $1.0943; 200,000 at $1.0944.

Pittsburg, Oct. 22.—At today's session of the missionary council of the Protest ant Episcopal church, the report of the board of managers emphasized the para mount importance of work among the colored people.
