Engineer Henry W< »oley was pull ing it and' there appears 'jo be no doubt that Engineer Wooley's Negligence was the cauee of the acrid ant. The con ductor and engineer received orders here to meet the Pacific express at Nichols. Engineer Woe (ley got his or \ders at Battle Creek, ant i getting beyond i<be stretch ot! double track kept right abead at a raVttling pac ». He met the Pacific express half a m He or less below the nXeethag point made* for him. The Pacific expirees was coming at 30 miles :an hour.* From Nichols, a curve begins 'so it for either engineer to soe the other's hoadlight appear. They had scarcely time fa) reverse, apply the air bra Yea and eava themselves as nest they co^ld. CAME TOGETHER H EAD ON. , Head on t.*s* engines came together. The Raymond . * Whitcomb train stood the shock without more than a shudder, excepting the baggage car at the head end, which had . * front stove. None of the passengers on the train were injured beyond a severe ah aking np. On the other trai. n all the horror was experienced. Tbe frail day coaches be hind the baggage ca.' wemt to splinters. (The train was made v P of 13coaches and the first four of the m aire telescoped. The paseengera were ca oghl in the eoata and the general maaa of ruin a; to add to their misery, burning i'am,pa exploded and in a moment the fo.ir cars were a sheet of flame. FIREMEN'S HEROIC W DtRK. The Battle Creek fire depi wtment did j heroic work. They received the alarm 5 minutes after the accident, the horees could not be driven between t. *je cars on acconnt of flames, co a rope wa c bitched to a chemical engine and it wa « hauled by hand into poaition, and tbe rear j sleeper, Sabrina, waa saved. 1 'he fire men took out everybody and practically cleared away the debris. Tbe tbird coach of the expreas I.9ft its trucke and plowed right through tbe second, scraping all the eeata and pas eengera along with it, and depositing them in a heap in tbe north end of the car, where most of the bodies wttre fonnd, Tbe bodies were loaded on a flat car and taken to Battle Creek sta tion. They were conveyed into Ranger & Early's undertaking rooms, where a ' morgue waa extemporized. SICKENING BIGHTS IN THE MORGUE. While everything was dons to relieve tbe remains of tbeir ghastly appearance, the scene at the morgne appalled the stoutest hearts. The dead were ranged along tbe aide of a dark baaement which 1 was illuminated by a feeble, flickering jet. Not a shred of clothing waa left upon them, and the remains were bo mangled and disfigured that they resem bled nothing but ancient mummiee that might have been disfigured before death. The beat preserved corpse waa that of a boy about 12 years old. A fringe of hair of a reddish hue was left about tbe ears and* skull. Tbe upper part of tbe bead was gone, having been consumed by the flames. A portion of tbe brain protruded and was of a white yellowish color. It wae literally cooked. Another of the beet preserved bodies ia that of a man of powerful physical frame. The flame licked the victim's face, shoulders and body, but the featurea and contour of the figure remained aa in life and might be identified by thoße familiar with his appearance, and these two are the least scarred and beet preaerved of that row of 20 unrecognizable dead. Tbe other remaine are only in parts; some are headless, some armless and all shriveled and diefigured beyond the semblance of human beings. The twenty-seventh victim, F. H. Smith, will be added to tbe death list before morning. Albert Bradley ia next of tbe moat seriously injured, but be is expected to recover. The rest of the patientß are all reported comfortable and out of danger at midnight. I'ITIFUL INCIDENTS. Frienda and relatives of come of the dead and injured arrived here tonight, and the remains of the unfortunates will be taken to their homes for burial aa Boon aa permission ie given by tbe coroner. W. E. Clarke of Sarnia, Ont., arrived tonijght and found hia son-in law. Albert Bradley, Berioualy injured and his daughter, Mrs. Bradley, dead. Her body conld be identified only by sbreda of clothing, the flesh being burned into an unrecognizable mass. At the hospital lies her husband crying continually in delirium: "Have you , jound my wife?" survivors' experiences. Burvivora tell vivid atoriea of their experiences. H. C. Crowiey of Port K T uron, at the time of the accident, bad jusV left hiß brother, W. H. Crow ley, in the second coach. He could not find him ah er the wreck, and apent all day in a futil,'' search. He fears now he is among thoat. so terribly burned. John C. StewO r t of Oalton, 111., had bia body badly b.'uißed and hia daugh ter, Jennie, waa Berioixely injured, and had her arm broken. lie had two children with him, a boy and a girl. The boy heroically rescued i ia sister by pulling her through a coach window. O. C. Van Dusen of Sproo tbrook, N. Va 7 ., accompanied by hia wife, \waa on his way to the fair. He waa tak en out of the wreck crushed and brui eed and taken to the hospital, where he died in a short time. He was conacion bto the last and calmly arranged hie b uainesa affair?, leaving everytiiing in tho hands of hiß friend, Rev. George Culp, He did not know of the awful fate -of hia wife. MHS. van dusen's death. Mra. Van Dusen was pinned in the telescoped cars, and at first had .no doubt she would escape. Aa ahe lookec' oat of the window and waited for tbe reecuera, an alarm of fire was given. "Hurry up, please," ahe aaid. A min ute later while strong men were strain ing to extricate her, the flamea began to creep rapidly toward her. "You shan't burn; we'll get you out," cried toe men aa tbey wreatled frantically with the 1 splintered timbera. The reocuera be came giants in atrengtb, and madmen in j deaperation, und struggled wildly with the tangled mass of wood and iron. The woman waa silent and gazed im ploringly into the faces of the firemen. ''My God; O, my God!" suddenly burst from the lipa of one of the heroic workers, aud iv tbat despairing cry the woman read ber death warrant. She gave one agonizing wail and then ber woman's weakness gav<s way to a mar tyr's etrength. "I can die, O, yea, I can die if I must," she aaid soothingly to the strong men who were weeping in tbeir impotent strength. Again tbey struggled to rescue, but tbe flames were encroaching on the party and the blaze claimed the victim that the crash bad ■pared. A CHRISTIAN HEROINE. "I am a christian," she Baid resign edly, and a moment later ber voice waa raised in prayer. The flames now com pletely encircled the helpless victim and the firemen were swept away. Aa tbe biaze caught her arms and aa she fought wildly to keep the flames from her face, the told ber name and address and left messages of love to ber husband aud family. The closing minute waa a pathetic struggle against the inevitable, but it waa the fleah tbat etruggled, not the spirit. The white face of the woman gazed heavenward, and her lipa moved in prayer. Even the fury of the t! . tnes that wreathed her limba and blistered and curled the white flesh of bet ai oat, were powerless to provoke a scream. Suddenly there was a surging una swaying of tbe burning timbers above her. A wild groan burst simultaneously from tbe lips of the spectator?, and strong men wept. Through their teara tbey aaw the flames sweep around the face of the martyred woman, and her hair burned wildly for a moment. Her head dropped to one aide as the victim inhaled the flames. The praying lipa were stilled and the aoul of Mrs. Van- Dueen passed beyond the fury of the elements of the earth. An hour later her hueband, for whom she left a loving meaaage, joined her in the world to come. WHO IS RESPONSIBLE? Engineer Henry Wooley and Conduc tor Scott of train No. 6 have both been arreated and placed under $3000 bonds for their appearance. Engineer Wooley said to the juatice that while he was | oiling up at tne depot Conduct oi Boot! came to him with orders, ar.d eaid to him that No. 9 bad gone through, and that the dispatcher waa crazy because tbey had not got out. Wooley hurried up his oiling and wben he got into the ' cab told the conductor he was ready to | go, and aaked if he was cure No. 9 had gone through. Scott aaid yea, she Dad, and Wooley'a fireman heard him say so. I Scott further said the road wae all clear, aud they started out. Wben they got ■ into the yarda Wooley saw an engine | which be supposed at lust was a ewitcb I engine, but eeeing a moment later it waa coming too fact, abut off and was at a dead etand still when No. 9 atruck tbem. He asked Scott after tbe wreck about the order and Scott muttered that he thought No. 9 had gone through. Scott, who returned this evening from Port Huron, emphatically deniea Wool ey'a statement. He says he understood his orders perfectly, and did not tell the .engineer that No. 9 had gone by. ONE OR THE OTHER GUILTY. The responsibility for tbe wreck seems undoubtedly to lie between these two iv, in. Railroad men say, however, even iiSScott had made the statement attrib a U'd to him by Wooley, that would not hi we justified the engineer in disobeying or a era. tlie coroner's investigation begins on Mo nuay. A message waa received late tonight by 1 'other Sadler from St. Michael's col lege, Toronto, asking for Father Clark. It is (eared he ia among tbe unidentified dead. The - frienda of Dr. C. 11. Osborne and wife li Soutbport, Conn., and Cheater Rice of Brookaide, Vt., were unable to find ai ly trace of them up to midnight, and th ay are supposed to be among the dead. ILLINOIS CENTRAL WRECK.

CANDOR AND COURTESY. They Are Not Antegoulstic, bat Veracity Should Be Clronmepeet and Kind. Hawthorne used to say, "God may for give sins, but awkwardness has no for giveness in heaven or in earth." If for awkwardness we luibetitnte nndue can dor, we might still be speaking temper ately. You do not invite to the christen ing the caller who looked kindly but firmly at your pretty baby and said she thought this child would be rather good looking, as he resembled his father's fam ily. It may be safely said that the per son who assures us that we have fallen off five years in ono will never be dear in memory. She has spoken the truth, but from henceforth we shun her as if she were a modern Sapphira. If we feel self elected to tell our friends the unpleasant things which hawe been said, no matter how tnnthfnlly, about them selves or those dear to them, we must expect to share in the odium of the mes- sage delivered. By th"-» laws of some occult science not yet formulated we become in a meas ure what we are told we are. To the woman who has said wo lo<jk dead and faded every tinge of yellow in our skin responds, and we believe that mnch time passed in her society would convert us into a mummy. When with those in whose love and appreciation we have confidence, we bring forth tjie answering fruits of worth and loveliness, while the consciousness that our associates con sider us stupid and unamiable has a tend ency to paralyze every brilliant attri bute and unselfish action. "Kindness, kindly expressed," like tho witch hazel wand, maires the desert blossom like a rose, whilo tho follower of undue candor loses half the sweetness and fruitage of life. Are we to>infer, then, that candor and courtesy are antagonistic? By no means. But we believe that veracity should be governed toy tbe rule» of tho old nursery game of "Aow, when and where." The manner of speaking the truth divinely taught held this injunction, "In love." The candor that publicly criticises or that points cut defects at the time and place where these defeots cannot be remedied is unpardonable. The sum of the whole matfier is this—while the love of truth should be the cardinal point of our religion, our creed should be broad enough to embrace the gracious prece dent of the heroine of wisdom in whose lips was the law of kindness.—Harper's Bazar. J'.rtber Than Ham. Hog and homtey is the popular dish in some portions of the south, just as pork and beans delight, the palate of the New Englanders and catfish and waffles ap peal to the taste of Philadelphians. How dearly a Virginian loves ham may be inferred by tho following conversa tion reported by a home coming com mercial traveler: While riding in front an interior town in the stage he feQ' into conversation with the driver. Tha talk finally turned upon hunting, the driver informing his fare that the woods th ereabout abound ed in game. Passing a stream, the trav eler asked if it contairefid fish. " Lots of them," was the reply. '•What kind?" "Mostly trout," said tfcedriver. "All these mountain streams are full of trout." "They must be fine efsting," was the next remark. "Fine eating!" exclaimed the driver. "Well, I sliould say so. Yon just go up to the mountains and catcii half a dozen trout about 10 or 12 inciiee long, clean 'em without washing 'em, rub in some salt, roll 'em in Injun meal and bake 'em in the ashes. Good eatinl Why, stranger, they beat ham.V—New York Herald. Frenchwomen of Business. The Brenchwoinan, unlike her English sister, htas, as a rule, a very good busi ness education.

After milady's head has been ducked in a basin of water and larvishly sprinkled to remove the foaming lather, she is re quested to place her bead at the opening of a huge tin tube. This sho does, and for a moment all is restful and silent. Then a sound as of the distant roar of cannon reaches her ear; louder and louder it grows. Cool breezes play about her bead, sent through the tube by whirling fans at the other end, and soon the hair'is perfectly dry.—St. Louis Republic. Colonel AlcClure's Illness.

He Tries to Out Be«eotlo« •» Tw«"»« --<:..(«ful Newspaper Men. Cincinnati. Oot. 20.-The Times-Star, Charles P. Taft. proprietor, prints an editorial on Aaiooiated press matters. In which he refer, to a recant publication in the New York Sun, purporting to be an account of a traniactlon in 1882 by which the Chicago News obtained tbe morning franchise in the Associated Presa. The editorial says in part: The. purpose of the article is to cast some reflection upon Mr. Lawson and Mr. Stone, wbo are just now prominent in the management of the Associated Press. Mr. Dana of the Sun is preeide.it of the United Pre«s, and Mr. E»f»» the Sun ie vice-president of the United Press. The Aseociated Press recently determined to enlarge its operations and become a national organisation. It is extending its field of opera tions into New York and New England in direct opposition to the United Preei, and the New York Son thinks it can retard ite progress by pub liehing an alleged account of what oc curred 11 years ago. This publication of this etory i» the Sun was simply for the purpose of belittling the guarantee fund of $319,000 subscribed by the Aseo ciated Press papers. It says: "Every member waß assured that not one dollar would ever be called for." On the con trary, no assurance of that kind was ever made. Indeed, the newspapers tbat signed the guarantee fund expect to pay and are ready to pay the entire amount Bubecribed. If the speculating triumvirate in control of the United Press are building their hopas upon the flimsy assertion that the Associated Press papers do not expect to pay np tbe $319,000 if called upon, they are badly mistaken. They do not under stand the temper of tbe Associated PreßS. Whatever may be said of the newspapers of New York and New England, it is very certain that the weßtern papers belonging to the Asso ciated Press never will consent to re ceive their news filtered exclusively through tbe New York Sun and con trolled exclusively by a speculating banker and two speculating newspaper men. If the great dailies of New York wish to play second fiddle to the New York Sun they have that privilege. The press of the western country, how ever, well understand their position. The New York Sun has a cinch, How long will this continue and how long will the New York papers play a subordinate role? Ituaalnna lv Pa.rU.
