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.

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.
Kansas City, Oct. 22.—A serious tail
end wreck occurred this morning on the
Union Pacific near Armourdaie. Nine
persons were seriously injured, an engi
neer fatally. An east bound freight
which left the depot before a
Union Pacific passenger train was
delayed near the scene of tbe ac
cident, and as there was a very
heavy fog the trainmen placed torpedoes
on the track to warn the following train.
The passenger engineer warned by
the torpedoes, stopped his train, and
before a flagman could be sent back to
warn the east bound Rock Island train
following, it crashed into the Pullman
sleeper of the Union Pacific. The Rock
Island engine was completely wrecked.
The engineer was buried under the
debris. The fireman jumped, but re
ceived serious bruises. The. damage is
estimated at $60,000.
Following is a list of the injured:

Birmingham, Ala., Oct. 22. —A passen
rr train on the Kansas City, Memphis
Birmingham railroad, which left here
at 9 o'clock last night, west bound,
went out, leaving a sleeper and the con
ductor in the station. Discovering this
fact six mites out of town, the engineer
began backing into Birmingham. At
Thomas furnace, three miles out of the
city, the backing train met an out-going
freight. There was a terrible collision.
Several passengers in the rear coach

FENIAN FRATERNITY.
The Secret Oath of the Order Unani
mously Abolished.
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.
By far the most important action of the
convention was the unanimous indorse
ment of the recommendation of the gen
eral secretary abolishing the secret oath
of the organization. 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.
John Murphy was re-elected treasurer.
Killed His Bride.
Kbwanneb, Wis., Oct. 22.—Albert
Ludermayer, a young farmer, quarreled
with his bride of a few weeks in regard
to the quantity of potatoes they should
put in for the winter. Ludermeyergrew
insanely angry, and seizing a Winchester
he shot her dead, then put the muzzle of
the rifle to his own head and blew ins
brains out.
Extradited Convicts.
Chicago, Oct. 22.— E. A. Ruddy, cap
tain of the prison guard at the San
Quentin, Cal., penitentiary, and Cap
tain Fish, turnkey of the prison, arrived
today with a requisition from Governor
Fifer for the removal of Charles A.
Thorn and George H. Shinn, who es
caped from the California prison.
A LEGAL SENSATION
TO FOLLOW THE CONSUMMATION
OF SANTA FE PLANS.
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.
THE WORLD'S FAIR.
Efforts Beins; Made to Secure Extensive
Foreign Exhibits.
New York, Oct. 22.—The foreign af
fairs committee of the world's Colum
bian commission, met at the Gilsey
house today. There were also present
four members of the foreign exhibit
committee of the local directory. The
committee's time was occupied princi
pally with a recommendation from W.
E. "Curtis, of the state department,
that army and navy officers should be
detailed by the South American coun
tries to do their utmost toward
making the exhibitions fiom those
countries what they should be.
This, he thought, could be ac
complished through the secretary
of state. He also suggested the estab
lishment of a bureau at Washington,
and read a letter from Secretary Blame
urging the importance of the matter,
and stating that it was not at all over
estimated. The subject of the appoint
ment of a commission to South Ameri
can countries was referred to a commit
tee. Prof. Adler of John Hopkins uni
versity, was appointed to superintend
the plan submitted by him, and ap
proved by the commissioners, for secur
ing a large exhibit from the orient.
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.
TRAIN-WRECKERS
Plylnsr Their Nefarious Vocation in
Missouri.
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.

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.
Today the secretary of the interior
signed certificates for the amount of
$15,000 each, appropriated under the
act of congress, approved August 30,
1890, for the present year, in aid of agri
cultural and mechanical colleges in the
following states: Indiana, Kansas, Ohio,
New Jersey, Michigan, New York, Penn
sylvania, Massachusetts, Delaware,
Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia,
Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota,
Oregon, Wisconsin, New Hampshire,
Alabama, Idaho, North Dakota and the
territory of Mexico.
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.
EPISCOPAL MISSIONS.
Bishop Tnttle Would Have All the
Clergy Married.
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. It commended the work
of Rev. David Morgan, in Mexico, and
expressed the hope that the house of
bishops would at the next meeting elect
a missionary bishop of Japan. A
women's auxiliary board was com
mended, and the great necessity
of increasing the missionary bishops
fund was emphasized. The contribu
tions of the church "for missions should
not be less than $500,000 for the ensuing
year. In the afternoon there was a dis
cussion of Indian missions. A number
of western ministers made a strong ap
peal for money. In the course of a
speech regarding provisions for superan
nuated ministers, Bishop Tuttle, of Mis
souri, said if he had his way he wonld
have every minister and every bishop
married. A married man is worth four
single men to the church.
Express Companies Must Pay Taxes.
Kansas City, Oct. 22.—The last state
legislature passed a law providing for
the taxation of all express companies
doing business in the state over rented
or leased lines, the tax being $2on every

freight within the state. The Pacific
Express company resisted and made a
test case. Today Judges Phillips and
Caldwell, of the United States circuit
court, declared the law valid.

Neighbors, hearing the noise, rushed in,
but Pellett escaped. Both Mr. and Mrs.
O' Hara will die. Robbery was undoubt
edly the object of the ruffian.

The complexion and color are made perfect,

This is high art in cosmetics. They are each more

Orange Lands For All!
THE SEMI-TROPIC LAND AND WATER CO. have about 20,000 acres left
of their original purchase of 29,000 acres of the best orange land in Southern
California.
We have always sold our lands for $200 per acre, nntil this fall. Now we have
reduced the prices and fixed our terms to bring the land within the reach of all.
We are arranging two irrigation districts under the "Wright Irrigation Act," and
are selling land in one of these districts at $75 per acre, with a rebate of $15 per
acre for improvements, to be put on the land by the purchaser the first year. This
leaves the net price at $00 PER ACRE, payable, $10 per acre cash, the balance in
3 equal payments, due in 2, 3 and 4 years, at 8 per cent interest.
In the other district we sell the land for $100 p*er acre, with a rebate of $25 for
improvements put on the land by purchaser the first year, which leaves the net
price at $75 PER ACRE, payable $10 per acre cash, balance in 2, 3 and 4 years, at
8 per cent, interest.
Our lands lie four miles west of San Bernardino and Colton, on the Santa Fe
and Southern Pacific railroads.seven miles north of Riverside,and we are prepared
to establish the fact that in quality and location they are not excelled in this
country. Our elevation is 1300 feet above sea level, beijpg about 400 feet higher
than Riverside, and almost entirely free from frost.
