PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 25.—It is now stated that the Shamokin express on the Philadelphia and Reading railroad, due here at 9:30 a. m., ran into an engine near the Msnayunk tunnel. About fif teen people are said to have been killed and some twenty or more injured. The accident was caused by the en gineer of locomotive No. 588, north bound, disobeying orders. The south bound track being occupied, the en gineer was ordered to wait at Pencoyd until the south bound express from Shamokin, due at Broad and Callowhill streets Philadelphia, at 9:30 a. m. had passed. Disregarding this he moved northward and just north of Manayunk tunnel met the express. A fearful crash followed. The officials report the number of killed at seven and the in jured at between twenty and thirty. The dead and wounded have been taken to St. Timothy's hospital, Roxborongh. The wreck took fire and is now burning in the tunnel. All the cars will un doubtedly be destroyed, as the fire engines are of little use there. TERRIBLE LOSS OF LIFE. Fifty Thouamitl lleHtlm CaiiKi-d by Flmxletl River in China. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 35.—Letters from Chinan FU, on the China sea, bring terrible accounts of the loss of life and property caused by the breaking of the banks of the Yellow river, which is aptly called "Chinese Sorrow," It is only three years since the whole basin of the river was flooded and now comes antoher flood fully as disastrous as the other. It is estimated that the flooded district is 150 miles long by 30 miles wide and that over 5u,000 people have been drowned and that full 1,000,000 will starve to death unless the Chinese government furnishes them food from now until next spring. These figures furnish some idea of the enormity of the calamity in which in a single village the whole loss of life at Johnstown is sur passed. The work of strengthening the ends and mouth of the river was prop erly done three years ago and the high water this season swept away the d)$es is though they were made of straw. In teveral districts the water is fifteen feet deep and whole families are perishing on the roofs of their houses. Only the most substantial structures resist the water, the majority crumbling away and carrying the wretched people to death. Many Paopla Prrlihed.

Large quantities of fruit have been destroyed, and many banana plantations mined. It is said to have been the most severe hurricane ever experienced on that coast. The wind came out from west-northwest and backed to southwest. The amount of damage done and the loss of life will no doubt be large, but will not be known for seme time yet.
