Goldsboro, Special.-Train No. 41
which left Rocky Mount Tuesday
morning at 5:17 o'clock for Wilming
ton, over the Atlantic Coast Line, ran
into an open switch at Warshaw about
8 o'clock the engine overturning and
killing Engineer Guilford Horne, of
Wilmington, and his colored fireman,
Will Sterling. The passengers were
shaken up, but none was injured. Mr.
Horne was the oldest engineer in the
employ of the Atlantic Coast Line, and
the father of Engineer W. H. Horne,
of Rocky Mount. Father and son met
each other on the road on their trains
in tho morning.
The wreck occurred at a siding about
one mile this side of Warshaw. The
siding had formerly been used for load
ing cars with wood, but had not been
used for several months past. __The?|
switch was open, but how it "came, to
be. open at this time is not known.
Mr. Guilford Horne, the engineer, and
Will Sterling, his fireman, were ""In
stantly killed. It was some time be
fore they could be extricated, as they
were wedged between the engine and
its tender. The mail car was piled
upon the tender, and all the cars were
moro or less damaged. Postal Clerk
Hollingsworth1 was badly injured, and
Clerk Powell bad to continue his run.
All of the passengers were more or
less shaken up, but none of them were
Mr. Horne has been employed by the
Coast Line for the last thirty-five,
years. He was one of, the most trust
ed of all the men in the service ol
the road. He lived in Magnolia many
years ago, where he was favorably
known. His death has cast a gloom
over the community, especially
noticeable among railroad people.
The trains were delayed for several
hours, the 12 o'clock train not reach
ing here until 4:30 p. m. Wrecking
trains were dispatched both from
Rocky Mount and Wilmington to assist
in clearing the track.
A Destructive Fire.
Minneapolis, Special.-Probably the
worst fire that the city of Minneapolis
has ever known occurred here Tues
day night, and at 12:30 o'clock $3,000,
000'worth of property had been de
stroyed, with prospects that tho to
tal loss will reach at least $5,000,000.
The fire started ia the photographic
supply house of O. H. Peck & Com
pany, oa Fifth street and First Ave
nue south, and ia less than one-half
hour this building was a mass of
wreckage. Next to the Peck build
ing is the furniture supply house of
Boutello Bros., the largest house of
its kind in the Northwest. This build
ing scon caught fire, sparks from it
being carried blocks by the north
wind, aided by cold weather, the fire
meu meeting difficulty in .their work,
as-the fire burned Itself out in ono
or two buildings and the firemen's
v.ork was entirely directed to the
buildings in close proximity in an at
tempt to save them. It is reported
that three firemen lost their lives.

Vote to Impeach Judge Swayne.
Sitting as a grand jui-y. the House of
Representatives Tuesday, with almost
full membership and niter more than
five hours discussion to the exclusion
of all other business,' adopted a resolu
tion providing for the impeachment of
Judge Chas; .Swaynfe; bf the northern
district pt Florid?;., for "high crimes
and misd?ra?aiiors-." The case against
the respondent was clearly set out by
Mr. Palmer, of Pennsylvania; chairman
of the 3ub-coramittee^of the judiciary
committee, which heard the evidence
in ihe case. He carefully dissected the
evidence bearing on each of the speci
fications, and said that if it were found
that Judge Swayne'bad done well, he
should be vindicated, but if he had
done ill. he should be sent to trial,
"where his excuses and apologies may
or may not receive consideration." He
was followed''by Messrs. Clayton, of
Alabama; Powers, of Massachusetts;
Henry, of Texas, and Lamar, of Flori
da, each of whom in most vigorous
terms advocated impeachment. Messrs.
Gillett, of California, and Littlefieid, of
Maine, in speeches opposed their col
leagues on all the specifications except
one, as to the account rendered to the
government by Judge Swayne for trav
. The Senate Notified.
The Senate, which under the consti
tution is made the trial court in im
peachment cases, Wednesday, received
official notice of the determination of
the House of Representatives to pre
sent impeachment charges against
Charles Swayne. Federal judge in the
northern district of Florida. The mat
ter was brought to the Senate's atten
tion by a House committee, and the
Senate appointed a committee to pre
pare the details of the proposed inves
When a few minutes before the hour
of the Senate's meeting, the House
committee appeared at the Vice Pres
ident's roora to confer with President
Pro Tempore Fryp, there was a gener
al scurrying about on the part, of of
ficials to find precedents and to make
preparation for the ceremony, the like
of which bad not been witnessed in the
Senate chamber since the proceedings
of 1876 against Secretary Belknap.
While the detail? were, being ar
ranged, Senator Frye was engaged in
conference with the Hcuse committee,
consisting of Messrs. Palmer, Jenkins.'
Gillett, Clayton and Smith, of Ken
tucky. Their official actiou consisted
in a mere notification to Mr. Frye of
the committee's desire to bringthe ac
tion of the House in the Swayne case
to the attention of the .Senate at as
early an hour as possible, and Mr.
Frye's reply that the Senate would be
prepared to receive .the committee at
any time that it might arrive.
A brief informal exchange of views
as to the time when the Senate should
take up thc case ensued. The House
members stated that it would be im
possible for the committee to present
its articles of Impeachment previous to
the holidays, and lt was suggested that
the trial might bc postponed until af
ter March 4th next, or even until the
j next session of Congress.

I presented itself ct thc main door of the
j Senate, being preceded by Clerk
j Brwning. of the House, who was an
nounced in the usual form by B. W.

resolution passed by the House. Mr.
Layton then presented the commiftee,

Thc president pro-tempore said: "Mr.
Chairman and gentlemen of the com
?mittee: The chair begs to announce
that the Senate will take order in the
premises, due notice of which will be
given to the House.'
Discussion of the bill to improve
currency conditions was resumed in the
House, bm throughout the session its
advancement was beset with obstruc
tive tactics by the Democrats, led by
Mr. Williams, of Mississippi, the minor
ity ieader. The Democrats mustered
sufficient strength lo force Speaker
Cannon to break a tie. in order that the
hill might te taken up. the Demo
crats assuming their attitude of an
tagonism because Mr. Hill, of Connec
ticut, in charge of the bill, refused to
postpone its further consideration in
oenserjuence of the illness of Mr. Bar
rett, of Georgia, leader of the opposi
tion. Little progress was made on
the measure. '
An amendment was offered by Mr.
Williams requiring the payment of
interests by banks cn amounts denosit
ed by the government, and limiting the
amount to be so deposited in any one
Senate Orders Impeachment.
The Senate spent practically the en
tire day discussing the Philippine ad
ministration bill. A number of amend
ments were suggested and debated,
among them being provisions relating
to railroad bonds, mining locations and
tariff rates. Under agreement, the vote
on the bill will be taken, and the dis
posal of all amendments will occur at
the same time. A formal order to enter
upon the Swayne impeachment nro
ceedings was adopted, hut it did not fix
a day for beginning thc work.
Mr. Plait, of Connecticut, chairman
of the select committee to consider the
recommendations of the House of Rep
resentatives for the impeachment of
Judge Swayne, presented the report of
that committee. The report was in the
shape of an order, which, after recit
ing the circumstances in a preamble,
proceeded as follows:
"Ordered, that the Senate will, ac
cording to its standing rules and or
ders in silch cases provided, take
proper action thereon (upon the pre
sentation of the articles of impeach
ment), of which due notice shall be

FOR INLAND WATERWAY
Convention to be Held in Columbia on
the 28th Exciting Much Interest.
A special from Columbia says:
The convention which is to" be held
here on the 28th for the purpose of
developing the natural water trans
portation routes along the Atlantic
coast. is arousing great interest
throughout this ?nt? neighboring
States, as the scheme has in view a
profound change in the freight vate
situation throughout this section of
the South. The strictly inland towns
which cannot hope to be reached by
any of the inland routes are appoint
ing delegates and otherwise showing
a lively interest in the matter, inas
much as they will he affected greatly,
it is confidently believed, although
their benefit will of course come in
an indirect way through being closer
to towns enjoying a water rate. The
cotton mills in the up-cbuntry are par
ticularly interested in the objects of
the convention, though of course such
cities as Charleston, Georgetown, Sa
vannah, Wilmington, Augusta, Colum
bia and the like will not get the great
est benefit, as their advantages will
This scheme contemplates connect
ing, the Great Lakes at their eastern
end with all tho harbors on the At
lantic coast by the Erie Canal, and
connecting those lakes at their wes
tern end with the whole Mississippi
valeys by the Chicago drainage canal
and other available routes.
The proposed inlf.nd water route by
avoiding Cape Hatteras and all other
danger points will provide a safe jour
ney for barges 'or canal boats from
thc northern ports to all ports on
the South Atlantic coast, as far South
as Jacksonville. If this route wero
open and free, Newbern, N. C.. would
te about the same ??stance from New
York that Buffalo ls by the Erie Canal,
and she would move her heavy pro
ducts' of the forest and the farm as
cheaply as Buffalo can. Georgetown,
S. C.. would .stand in about the same
relation to New York city that Cleve
land, Ohio, new does, and ought to
get. the same rates by water. Barges
taking the inside route to Georgetown
can carry lumber much cheaper than
the more expensive vessels that go
outside of Hatteras. Nature has giv
en us a wonderful system of water
ways, which if properly used by de
velopment of boat traffic to the heads
of navigation, would start in our
Southern Slates- an eia of prosperity
unparalleled in history. Many points
in this State by the completion of this
afe inland water loute would be put
in closer touch with the great markets
of the North.
It is a great scheme, and when right
ly understood, will secure the hearty
co-operation of thc immense and daily
interest dependent upon its comple
tion. These interests, though dl
versed and widely localized in several
States, will sure unite to form the co
alition required as the only means of
gaining this great mutual benefit.

week by closing his dispensary on a
majority petition of the people of the
community is preparing to test the
right of the State board to make such
a removal under the new Brice act,
which, it is claimed, limits the clos
ing of dispensaries to counties; He
has not yet brought action,'but it ia
likely that he will test the matter in
the courts. It will be an extremely
interesting case, affecting all dispen
sary communities. In the meantime,
the State board has wisely gotten
credit for a willingness to yield a peg
or so to the prohibition sentiment
before the convening of the Lesislature
next month, which may make such

44 DE AB Mas. PH?KHAM:- I am very pleased
to recommend Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound for womb and ovarian difficul
ties from which I have been a sufferer for years. It
was the enly medicine which was at all beneficial, *
and within a week after I started to use it, there
was a great change in my feelingE and looks. I
used it for a little over three months, and at the
end of that time I suffered no pain at the menstrual
period, nor was I troubled with those distressing
pains which compelled me to go to bed, and I have
not had a headache since. ThiB is nearly a year .
ugo. I always keep a bottle on hand, and take a
lew doses every week, for I find that it tones up the system and keeps ma
feeling strong, and I never have that tired out feeling any more. . .

for it would provo its worth. Yours very truly, Miss ELSIE DAsroBTn, 203 j
