A TERRIBLE REVENGE,
An Engineer Killed With a Hammer by
V ,n Wert, Ohio. July 19 —Just before
rea hing Van Wert last night the engine
of a Cincinnati, Jackson A Michigan pas
senger train was boarded by men, who
knocked Engineer Van Devander and
Fireman Roodhouse senseiesss with a ham
mer. The train ran past the station at
Van Wert and crashed into the yard
engine and several cars. The passengers
were shaken up, hut nobody was injured.
Engineer Van Devander died this after
noon. The fireman will recover. It is
supposed the assault was committed by ex-
Convict Blair Mock, who killed Van
Devander’s son in 1884. Engineer
Van Devander was the chief wit
ness against Mock and the latter swore
vengeance. Mock wass seen in the cifv
this morning, but is not jet arrested.
During the excitement last night it was
thought to have been an attempt to rob
the train, but it is now believed that it
was merely Mock’s plan of revenge.

ATTACHM ENT AGAINST WALKER.
He Employed a “Sc-ilper” hi the Inter-State
Chicago. July 19 —An attachment re
turnable forthwith, was issued by Judge
McConnell today against Chairman Walk
er, of the inter-state commerce railway as
sociation. It grows out of the fight of the
well-known ticket scalper, E. A. Mulford,
against the American ticket brokers’ asso
ciation, which dropped him from member
ship. He began mandamus proceedings
in Louisville some time ago to be reinstated
and also began several damage suits. This
brought out an interesting story to the
effect that soon after the inter-state law
went into effect. Mulford closed out his
scalping busines in Chicago, saying there
was no money in it. Afterwards, it is
stated, he was employed by the Inter-state
commerce railway association, presumably
on account of his intimate acquaintance
with the scalping busines? to aid
the railroads in stamping it out.
It is asserted he was to receive 812,000 a
year, but he struck out for the chairman
ship of one of the minor organizations in
the place of being merely a head of the
secret bureau. Not being able to gain
this he quit the association and went back
to the scalping, but the ticket brokers had
in the meantime thrown him out. The
Louisville court directed a notary hereto
take deposition of Chairman Walker.
That gentleman refused to answer the
summons, however, lienee the attachment.
He is notin the city at present.

Dakotans Claim the “Original Package’

Chamberlain, July 19. —Judge Haney, j

the decision are that the enabling act ad
mitting South Dakota to the statehood,
authorized the enactment of the prohibi

Such an enabling act having been passed
by congress subsequent to the passage of
the inter-state commerce law, therefore
the prohibition law received the sanction
of congress and the supreme court decis
ion does not, therefore, apply to
South Dakota. This brings up anew

HOLOCAUST IN NEW YORK
The Western Union Telegraph Build
ing Destroyed by Fire.
' The Operators Behaved Nobly, But
Their Efforts Were Useless.
Many Lines of Business Were Tempo
rarily Suspended by the Fire.
New York, July 18.—The Western
Union Telegraph building caught fire at
7 o’clock this morning The distributing
room on the fifth floor, the operating room
on the floor above, the Associated Press
rooms and the restaurant on the seventh
floor, were completely destroyed. The
total loss will reach 3100.000.
Seven persons miraculously escaped death.
A few minutes before 7 o’clock the opera
tors began to arrive to go to work. About
fifty young men and women reached the
operating room. A messenger boy saw a
puff of smoke under a table in the dis
tributing room on the floor below the
As soon as the smoke was discovered
Night Manager Tobin cried fire, and in a
moment ail the men in the room jumped
for the hand grenades which hung about
the walls. These they began to throw down
the hole where the flames were. The con
tents splashed out when the glass broke
and the liquid sputtered a little as it met
the fire. That was all the
visible effect. Hand grenades could not
fight a fire like this. Tobin called a mes
senger boy to go down and send in an
alarm. As soon as the boy started down
stairs the operators unrolled the big hose
wheel which is kept ready for
an emergency of this kind.
They unrolled the hose and Tobin turned
the water in. It was a pretty good stream,
and it looked at first as if it would beat
the waves of flame out of existence. But
it did not —not a bit. The only effect it
seemed to have was to make the fire shoot
up higher, and it was noticed the smoke
came rolling out of the big bole in greater
v flumes than before. The operators
worked the hosejmtil the smoke becam
so thick that they could not see where the
fire was. Three ladies of the day force,
who had arrived, kept cool, and the op
erators worked like beavers. They soon
found out, however, that their efforts were
useless. The elevator man had brought
the elevator up to the fifth floor, and the
women went in the cars with some of the
men. They began to realize by this time
that the fire was going to be a more seri
ous affair than at first thought. When
the last few men crowded into the last car
they were a little bit frightened. As they
passed the floor below a hot wave rolled
over them, which made their
throats dry and parched, and as the
car proceeded down, fire brands
fell upon them and burned their clothing.
When the car reached the bottom they
were all glad enough to get out. Not un
til then did the men realize that escape
was almost cut off, and it is not on record
where men worked so hard under such fear
ful circumstances and against such odds
as did these thirty men.
By the fire the commercial exchanges
were completely cut off from all telegraphic
connections. The cotton, coffee and pro
duce exchanges depend on the Western
Union to distribute their quotations over
the tickers. This caused a complete
suspension of the ticker service
and brought the business almost
to a stand-still in exchanges. In ad
dition all outside cities were cut off and
public grain and cotton cables were also
lost through the cutting off of wires. The
suspension of telegraph facilities had
worse effect than the blizzard of 1888.
A MOURNFUL SCENE.
Twenty-four More Bodies Came to the Sur
Red Wing, July 16.—The doleful toll
ing of the church bells is still to be heard
in this city, today. The list of recovered
dead from the disaster having been greatly
increased since yesterday. Eight bodies
were brought up this morning. In the
afternoon sixteen more were brought up,
and one was sent over to Lake City, and
tonight another boat load arrived.
This swells the list of recovered dead to
100. and it is thought that about a dozen
bodies still lie in the lake.
The scene at the lake shore, the disaster
having occurred two miles this side of
Lake City, in Goodhue county, is a sad
one. When the first bodies were recover
ed Sunday night ani Monday morning,
the faces were calm and peaceful and
showed little or no signs of having come
to a sudden death. Not so xvith those
found last night and today. All these
were bloated and blackened beyond
recognition so that the clothing, and
jewelry and papers were the only
way for friends to claim their dead. The
xvarm weather and the shallowness of the
water, together with the fact that several
big steamers sent up heavy swells today,
as they passed up the river brought the
bodies to the surface very quickly. Patrol
ling row boats towed the bodies ashore,
where they were identified as soon as pos
sible, boxed and shipped to this city.
Engineer Sparks, of the Sea Wing, to
night entered an emphatic denial of the
report that he, the captain, or any of the
crew had been drinking. The friends of
Sparks and Capt. Wethren. are also in
dignat ant the charge of drunkenness. The
reported arrest of Capt. Wethern is not
false. A man who came tonight from
Diamond Bluffs, where the captain's home
is situated, says the sheriff took Wethern
to St. Paul this afternoon, having ar
rested him at the instance of United States

Inspector Crain testified that he had ' sev
j eral times found naphtha on board vessels
in this harbor shipped by the Genesee Oil

thereupon notified the consignees
of the discovery, but had
received no reply. He had found three
i shipments of naphtha by the Genessee

pany during the present month. They
were simply marked “Diamond tJ,” and

GAVE SENSATIONAL EVIDENCE.
The Oil Company Sent litflaniable Mate
rial Without Labeling: It.
Chicago, July 17.—The inquest into the
| cause of the death of the victims of the
steamer Tioga, last Friday, was begun to
day. Oil Inspector Crain, who has made
an examination of the contents of the oil
barrels in the hold, gave some sensational
1 evidence this afternoon. It is said
he found, upon examination, that
a large part of the cargo
consisted of barrels of naphtha, and that
; these were labeled simply "Diamond B.”
instead of being specifically marked, so
| that any one could more readily learn
I their contents, as required by law. The
| coroner has notified the United States dis
trict attorney of these develop nents and
I and that gentleman says he will look into
the matter thoroughly.
James McCarthy, agent of the company
at Buffalo, said the Tioga had three hun
dred and twenty barrels of supposed to be
refined oil shipped by the Genesee Oil
company. The line has a rule against re
ceiving inflammable or explosive articles on
boats, but it had no inspector of oils and
depended on the good faith of the oil com

| cago parties recently or wiiat is known as
the Remington farm, located on a sight
ly eminence in the eastern suburbs of" the
! city, near Maxwell’s dam, and overlook
ing the tortuous BaruOoo river, as it
I winds away toward the gulf. This
' property. built up and beautified
I by C. C. Remington, who, in his day, was
the ablest lawyer in Sauk county, is to be
platted and sold in town lots. Inci
dentally it may be mentioned that some of
the most remarkable lizard and bird
mounds in the country are located on this
farm. Other hind in the neighborhood has
also been bought up and it, too, will
be platted. The men who have done the
buying are on the inside so far as tips
from tne railway managers are concerned
and are not investing their money with
out a full understanding of the sstuation
and of the fact that ther is probably a
handsome return in the deal for them.
The cause for this significant move
ment in real estate lies in the fact that the
Northwestern company intends to take
steps that will make Baraboo much more
of a railway town even than it is at pres
ent. It has within the past few months
been made the end of all freight runs and
soon all passenger trains will change
crews here. Harvard is to be left out in
the cold. and all the railway life it
has will ultimately come to
this city. The passenger runs will be from
Chicago to Baraboo, and from Baraboo to
Winona. Now tney are from Chicago to
Harvard, and Harvard to Elroy. Baraboo
will thus be made the great central train
and repair point between Winona and Chi
cago; great additions will in due
time be made to the round-house
and the repair shops, to which
end the Harvard and West Chicago shop?
will be made to contribute. The railway
company, by lengthening its runs, will
considerably reduce its number of train
crews, and be enabled by the change to
effect much economy in other direc
