last Wednesday night. this bcing his
Becond trip, roturned home this morn?
ing at 5:30 o'clock. Hc does not ex?
pect to return to Florlda.
When seen hy a reporter of The
Times-Dispatch at hls ofllce at the san?
atorlum, Dr. Waugh appeared to be
hopeful that Major Danlel would rccover
from tho attack of paralysls, and there
is llttle. doubt but this will ho true if
thero is not another rccurroncc of thc
cerebral hemorrhagc which caused hla
present trouble, or if there is not an?
other and entirely different hetnorrhago
of the brain.
Dr. Waugh stated that Major Daniol's
present condltlon, which is a marked
Improvement when compared with his
condition when ho saw him upon hls
arrlvel at Daytona last Wednesday eve?
nlng, ls due to tho remarkable condi?
tion of.thc heart and kidnoys of tho
"These aro perfect,"' deelared Dr.
Waugh. "If Senator Daniel's heart had
not been in perfect condition and his
kldneys had not performed their func
tions perfoctly, there could have beon
no hopo for hlm, and death must havo
occurred within twenty-four hours from
my arrival at his bedsido laat Wednes?
"When I left Major Dnnlel," Dr.
Waugh wont on, "thcrc was stlll a
marked condition of tho coma, but .thla
was not absolutely profound. HIspulso
and respiratlon wero as good as could
bc. Ho kceps hls eyes shut nearly all
the time, as thoiifjh ho was undor tho
lnfluence of an anesthetic. Oecaslon
ally he wlll get hls eyes hair open, hut
thls is only for a brlof time."
Stlll Very ScvIouh.
Dr. Waugh says Major Daniel's con?
dltlon ls yct vory,' vory sorious, and
while tho improvement has. been un?
doubtediy very marked, ho is stlll in
an unsatisfactory stato, . Ho says that
when Major Danlel haa roplled to ques?

Frelght 'Wrcck the Cnuae.
A little freight wreck on the Rock Is?
land last nlght at Shellsburg was the
Indirect cause of the Green Mountaln
dlsaster. The Rock Island was block
ed, and it became necessary to detour
over tho Great Western tracks.
Two trains, sent from Ccdar Rapids
to Marshallto.wn, were coupled to?
gether and tlio two locomotives placed
In front of them. Both locomotives
wore runnlng backwards. The com?
bined train consisted of thirteen care
A Pullman was next to the locomo?
tives. Then came a smokiiig car and
a day coach. .ln the latter were many
women and chlldren.
The doublcd train was going about
twenty-flve miles an hour when lt
reached a cut flve miles from Green
Mountaln at tho top of a hill. In thla
cut the tender cf.tbe front .locomotive
Jurnped the track. Thls threw tho
head locomotive Into the sides of tho
narrow cut. Tho clay of the sldes was
soft, and tho englne-went Into it and
stopped almost instantly.
Thc sudden stoppage dltched tho
second locomotive. and the momentum
of the heavy traln crushed the day
coach and the smoklng car against tho
heavicr Pullman. The smoklng car
and day coach wero telescoped, and
hardly an occupant of cither car es?
caped death or injury.
Whllo tho last ten cars remained on
tho track, the shock threw tho pas?
sengers sprawllng from their seats.
Conductor Willlam Worst dispatched
trainmen back to flag a followlng
train. Other trainmen were hurried to
Giadbrook and Green Mountaln for
Bodlca iu Grueaome llowa.
Unlnjured passengers began remov
ing the dead and lnjured. Tho dead
were taken to an adjoining. pasture
and lald on tlie grass. A rellef traln
from Marshalltown carrylng surgeons
and Coroner Jay arrlved' two hours
after the crash. By that tlme the
bodles were lald on the grass in gr.ue
somo rows. The slght that met the
eyes of tho surgeons was horriblc.
Phe dead were crushed and mutilated
ln- many cases beyond recognition.
Heads wero severed from bodles, arms
md legs were cut off. Here lay a
Weedlng trunk; there. a head wlth the
_gony of death on the stlll counte
nance. jj
A second rescue traln relleved .the
flrst, which brought a load of lnjiired
to Marshalltown.
Coroner Jay, was hastenlng ln a
Red Cross ambulance* to tho hospital
ivhon ho was thrown to the pavement
is the ambulance roundod, a corner,
ind rendered unconsclous.' It ls be?
lleved that hls back is broken and
:hat he cannot llvo.
The hospltal in Marshalltown was
soon flllcd. Then othor bulldlngs were
iressed intn service. ,.
Tho- removal of the hodies showed
hat nearly all the dead were in the
lay coach and tho smokiiig car. It ls
(olioved that only two of tho dead
vere ln tho Pullman.
So complete was tho destructlon of
ho smoklng car that not a slngle up
Ight' ch.alr was standlng. The floor
;lone remained as mute witness of tho
rlghtful impact of the car ahead. Tho
lay coach llkowlse was torn almost
o spllnters. Tho baggage car, which
vas behlnd the day coach, was jammod
n the front, huit was not torn to
AU Vletlma Hcmnvcd.
Before dark the bodles of all the vlc.
Imswwff removed, elther to St. Thom

To-nlght, the sceno of the wreck pro
entod an uncannv sight. Tho filck

eemed to ho reflected in the crimson
troarfis thrit dyed the ground on elther

xpected that the track wlll bo cleareu

of the grand Jury, followlng the sen
satlonal confession of Captain John
Kleln, former member of Councils, who,
?as chief dlsburslng ofllcer of thc fund,
churacterjzed hlmself as "chancellor of
the exchequer."
All day long Judge R. S. Frazer sat ,
as a commlttlng magistrate in the (
Crimlnal Court room, nnd hls desk be?
came a "throne of grace'" to the many
Councilmen under susplclon who
swarmed beforo tho Judge to be
"washed of their sins." On one floor
of the court buildlng tho grand Jury
would hear the consclence-strlcken
Councilmen, who then would go be?
fore Judge Frazer and take the Im
munlty bath offered last weck by the
dlstrlct attorney.
Ten Confesa Gullt.
Up to thn adjournment of thc court
for the day at 6 o'clock ten had con
fessed thelr gullt. In most Instances
thc amount of money they confessed to
acceptlng as a hrlbo was not over
5100. One man got $500, another $2.0,
whlle others got but $..1.10.' ^
As fast as present Councilmen ap?
peared, after they had relieved their
consciences. they were ordered Imme?
diately to reslgn from tho clty gov?
ernment. and ln every Instance the
letter of reslgnatlon was wrltten ln
the district attorney's offlce and mailed
to Mayor W. A. Magec before thc guilty
ones left the buildlng.
The greatest surprise of the day
camc late ln the aftornoon, when Dr.
B. II. Weber. membor ot Silect Council.
iflfeared beforo Judtf. Frazer and made
a confession almost as startllng as
that of Kleln. Dr. Weber told of re
.elving $10,000 In a shoo box. Six
thousand dollars of thls, he sald. ho
?ave to Kleln for members of Common
Jouncll, whlle he kept $1,000 to "flx"
members of' the upper branch. Later,
tccording to Weber, lt was found nec
.ssary to secure moro votes, and moro
noney was raised, and when this was
iivlded it was found that tho addl

While beforo the grand Jury, Dr.
Weber was unablo to remember all
Ciie men to whom ho Wad paid money,
but ho checked them up, by having
tho 11st of Councilmen read to hlm
from a clty manual.
The ways ln whlch the money was
delivered t othem were many, as de
scrlbed by the confes'slng Councilmen.
Some had lt thrust Into their hands
whlle standing ln public places, some
received it In the mall, whlle others
had envelopes adroltly sllppcd into

Tho Itcgulur Republlcans, rcallzlng
from the outbursts in the press from
varlous Insurgents over the Saturday
nlght speech of Speaker Cannon. when
he called thom "cowardly members,"
that party harmony was to be gained
only by the most dlplomatle tendor of
Uio ollve branch, wero most adrolt ln
thelr relations to-day with tholr Insur?
gent brethren.
That division of the Insurgents which
voted for the oustlng of Speaker Can?
non from tho speakershlp was eml
nontly satlstied to-day with.ita effort,
and, like the Democrats, willing to lot
things drift quietly.
One DiMcnrdnnt Xotc.
The score cr so of the Insurgents who
had voted for the retehtion of tho
Speaker in tho chair, only to bc reward
ed wlth a wltherlng blast from the
Speaker, supplied the only dlscordant
note. They reached the Capltol ln a
decidedly wrathful and mllltant frame
ot mind. Several of them, llko Repre?
sentatlve Norris, of Nobraska; Madison,
of Kansas; Hayes, oC Cajifornia. and
two or three others, sparod no wor.__~
ln volelng thoir Jndignation at the waSy^i,
tho sltuatlon affected them.
Two or three of them talked- loudUr
of contlnued warfare, of a further llght
upon tho rules of tho House, upon
Speaker Cannon. upon the Regulars ln
the selection of the new Rules Commit?
tee, and along other llnes of Insur
gency. But notwlthstandlng thelr loud
crlea of renowed reucllion, they wero
met on all sides by smiles and concll
iatory words from the Regulars. ,
Not tho least influence In produclrig
a sortof general alr of forglvoness was
tho word that came indtrectly from the
room of Speaker Cannon to the effect
that the Spoaker had modcrated in hls
attltudo toward tho men he had de
nounce_rSaturdny night, and there waa
almost a certainty "tbat tho Speaker
had been misquoted in his remarks," or
somethlng. of that kind.
One of the strongest of the day'3
tondcncles toward peace was the nomi
tiation of Majority Leader Payne for
i placo on the new Rules Committee
oy Representatlve Norris, the leader of
the Insurgents and author of tho reso
iution which preclpitated tho recent
