Brewer and Conductor Young, collided, head-on, with an ex ;a west-bound freight in charge of r:ngineers Stearns. Both engines were demolished, as well nus seven loaded freight cars, while five men were injured, two quite seriously. Engineer Brewer, on the eastbound train, received the most severe injuries, sustaining a double fracttre of the leg below the knee and compound fracture of the !.high bone. It required some time for the company surgeon to dress his wounds and reset the broken bones, broken parts having to be fastened together with silver wire.

A hobo, named George Schrug, who was riding in a car load of house hold goods, had his leg broken in two places. Train No. 58, in charge of Conduc tor Young and Engineer Brewer, was given orders to leave Missoula as soon as the extra freight from the east had arrived. The train had stood in the yards for some time and some one is alleged to have asked Brewer why he was waiting. He replied that he was waiting for the extra to pull in from the east, that he had orders to pull out as soon as it arrived. His questioner, it is said, then informed him that the extra had pulled in some time before, and was in the west yards.

As they were rounding a curve, just east of Buell Hyde's gardens, his fire man, Charles Ruegamar, said he saw a headlight ahead. Brewer reversed his engine and he and his fireman jumped, but were caught beneath the debris of the wrecked cars. Frank Reynolds, of the westbound extra, saw the headlight on Brewer's engine about the same time, and he jumped, while Engineer Stearns started back over the tender. The col lision occurred just as he was getting upon the rear end of the tender. The force of the collision stood the tender on end. and he was thrown down into his cab again, but escaped without in juries. All the cylinder heads were knocked off the engines, and the trucks from beneath engine 1260, but engine 1255 escaped with less injury. Both engines being of the heaviest on the road,'they stuck close to the rails and the damage done was to the first cars in the rear of the engines on either train. On the westbound train five cars were demolished. Two were loaded with coal, one with stove pipes, one with strips of hoop steel and one with household goods. In this car there was a horse belonging to Charles E. Graefer of the United States army, which was en route from Fort Leavenworth to Portland. Her man Genter accompanied the horse to care for it, and both escaped with out injury, while George Schrug, a hobo, whom he had allowed to ride in the car, had his leg broken. On the eastbound train two cars loaded with lumber were wrecked. - The injured trainmen were brought to this city and taken to the company hospital for treatment, while George Schrug, the hobo, was taken to Par sons' hospital and the fractures re duced. VORWAERTS RENEWS ATTACKS. Says Emperor Is Previous in Fore casting Verdict of the Court. Berlin, Nov. 28.-The Vorwaerts, commenting on Emperor William's speech on the day of the funeral of Herr Krupp at Essen, says: "While the prosecution is still pending against us and the truth is not judici ally yet ascertained, the emperor an ticipates the court's finding by pro nouncing our guilt out of hand. It is alowed that the crown at the initia tory stage of a pending case can utter a verdict and thereby place the judges in the painful dilemma of either con tradicting his majesty or subjecting themsel'es to the suspicion that their judgment was influenced by him. Jus tice stands above everybody, even above the emperor, and the freedom of the courts is the life and nerve of every state." The paper adds: "The monarchy is constitutionally irresponsible. An edequate answer to the emperor's speech is prevented through the lese majeste paragraphs." The Vorwaerts in two columns reaf firms in moderate language the truth of its original charges against the late Herr Krupp and alleges that the evidence rests on the testimony quite above party association, personal in terest or political hate.

Price 35c. 71-4 GOMEZ ENDS THE STRIKE. The Old Warrior Sees Both Sides and Talks Right Out. Havana, Nov. 27.-The Central La bor Union last night decided to call off the strike, and committees were apointed to inform the various unions of this decision. Much of the credit for the settle ment of the strike is due to General Gomez, who headed the committee which consulted the officials of the HavanaCommercial company, against whom -the strike was first directed. After the conference General Gomez and the majority of the committee expressed themselves as satisfied at the stand the company had taken. The officials maintained that they had not discriminated against Cuban ap prentices, the fact being that the com pany's books showed that over 90 per cent of its apprentices were Cubans. The company would maintain and even increase this ratio, but it re fused to treat with the Central La bnr TTnion in matters pertaining to its employes. The officials said that they would meet a committee made up of workers from their factories and they agreed to open the factori~a "again if the men returned to work. General Gomez and the committee afterward met the Central Labor un ion and the old warrior did not spare words in his condemnation of the ac tion of the union in calling out the workmen. He said it was a revolu tion and not a strike and that the war veterans stood ready to take up arms in support of the government in order to maintain order. That ended the strike so far as the Central Labor union was concerned. It did not care to brave General Gomez's wrath and word was sent out as soon as possible to have the men return to work. BALFOUH AT THE HELM. Mr. Chamberlain's Departure for South Africa Is Significant. New York, Nov. 27.-Commenting upon the departure for South Africa of Colonial Secretary Joseph Cham berlain, the London correspondent of the Tribune cables: "The significance of all these tributes lies in the fact that the old parliamentarian who has become the strongest individual force in public life, has gone out with a special com mission from the crown and cabinet to settle affairs in South Africa as he likes. Premier Balfour's personal au thority will be strengthened by the withdrawal of the masterful spirit of the colonial secretary from politics during the next six months. The edu cation -bill will be carried without the aid of Mr. Chamberlain and the pro gram of the next session with the Irish measures and the London s"-hool reorganization as the chief features will be known as exclusively the prime minister. He was master of the situation for the first time when the cabinet met yesterday with one chair vacant. He may need his most sagaci ous adviser more urgently than poli ticians apprehend. There are per sistent rumors that Lord Salisbury is returning to England in order to sup port Lord Hugh Cecil's agitation for an amendment to the education bill, which has now entered upon the re port stage with closure applied vigor ously for three days. There is also a continuance of political gossip re specting the king's intervention in Irish affairs 'and fundamental changes in policy which may precede the royal visit to the island next year. Some nationalists choose to assume that the king from the friendship for Mr. Glad stone, has been a home ruler for many years, but this is a fantastic in vention. There is reasonable ground, however. for thq belief that a great effort -will Ie made to conciliate the Irish party before the king's visit to Ireland." VOLCANO IS STILL BUSY.
