ANOTHER RAILROAD HORROR.
The fust mai' train from New York

noon. The train, which was made Dp
of mail and express care, left the track
just as the engine was entering a high

and curve. It is npposed, definite in?
firmatimi I cing unavailable on account
of the death of the conductor and cm.'i?

high rah of speed, and that the flange
? a wheel ot the locomotive broke
when the curve was -truck. The engine,
followed by three mail and one express
car-, ran -ome distanoe on the trestle,
plunging along the on? tie-, and then
fell 70 feet to the water below.

New York Stock Market.
(taw fork, Sept. 28.?Stocks opened
nervous and generally lower. Steel
common made a new low record. I'< r
a time at the start liquidation appeared
to be beyond'^eontrol. Stock came out
in flood? and in instances -;tles were
made half a point apart. After the first
fifteen minutes, however, covering of
shorts stayed tho declinesnd some rallies
followed. These in -omo instance? were
fairly well held, but in other cases after
temporary resistance stock- fell to lower
points than won? seored in the initial
dealings. Toward the close of tho tiist
hour l'iiion l'acide, which has bica
comparatively steady, broke over 1 per
cent and fresh weakness was developed
in St Paul-OhieagO ?V Northwestern,
Atchison, Baltimore A Ohio, Reading,
Metropolitan Securities, and Missouri
Pacific. The market remains active and
excited. Now considerations formed no
factor in speculation, pri?e? being gov?
erned entirely by the noce??ties of liqui?
dation.
New York, Sept. lN ?noon.?Seems
bordering on a pauk sere witnessed in
the stock exchange this morning. A
flood of liquidation set in again al the
opening, and fot a time .seemed beyond
control. Short covering for a time
stemmed the tide of selling, and rallies
followed but towards eleven o'clock the
market took another downward turn.
Demoralization was especially noted in
tiic ?ted stocka and in the local tractions.
New low records wt re reported in the
? minion and preferred and in steel
tives. Some of the abaiea decline record?
ed in the first hour were from 1 to 4 per
cut. Industrials generally lost 1 and 2
per cent.
