ENGINEER IS GROUND TO PIECES Scattered Remains Gathered With Shovels Three Killed and Four In jured in Train Wreck Salt Lake Passenger from San Ber nardino Runs Into a Defective Swltth and Is Thrown from the Tracks C. S. HAMILTON, engineer, married, 2131 East First street; crushed beneath cab of engine; killed instantly.

INJURED E. E. Powell, conductor, 107 North Anderson street; cut and bruised. Arthur F. Wingart, fireman, 176 South Pless street; cut anji bruised. David Norbie, Riverside; cut and bruised. F. A. Taylor, express messen ger, 1520 Pleasant avenue; cut and bruised. Hurled from the rails by a defective switch, Salt Lake local No. 13, from ■*«•> Bernardino, waa plunged Into a ditch about half a mile from the First street station at 11:20 yesterday morn- Ing and beneath Its mighty bulk was burned the body of Its engineer, C. S. Hamilton. When the debris waa finally removed sufficiently to enable the wrecking crew to get at the unfor tunate man the remains were found scattered over a large area and had to be gathered with shovels. The regular engineer on No. 13 was off yesterday, having secured a two days' vacation Saturday, and it was Hamilton's first run on that train. He was almost half an hour late and eye witnesses say was running very fast to make up time. At the Seventh street switch, scarcely six blocks away from the station, the accident occurred. Switch Not Locked As the flying local thundered down the track the engineer whistled to a switch engine steaming near. The con ductor of the switch engine threw the switch and leaped on the rear guard of his train. The switch had not, however, been locked, and the jar of the flying passenger threw It open. The engine held to the rails, but with a grating sound the rest of the train was thrown from the track and for an instant skid ded along the side of the three-foot embankment. The next moment the weight of the derailed train overturned the locomotive and it plunged over on Its side, plowing its nose through a pile of soft dirt lying along the side of the track. With a force that tore loose the boiler plates the engine plowed its way into the ground and burled itself deep in the soft earth. Hamilton, who stuck by his throttle to the last, was caught between the en pine nnd the earth, and his body was literally ground to pieces. Vitals and limbs were strewn along the track, and when the wrecking crew arrived they had to remove the unrecognizable fragments with shovels. Find Severed Arm Several hours after the bleeding mass of grimy flesh and bones had been taken to Stewart & Hamilton's undertaking parlors a severed arm was found by the workmen fifteen fpet from the track and small pieces and slivers of bone )ay scattered under the overturned bag tnpre coach. Hamilton lived with his wife at 2131 Kast First street. Mrs. Hamilton had been in San Francisco for the past weak but was telegraphed for last night. SJhe will take charge of her hus band's remains when she arrives in Los Aiwles this morning. The fireman, Arthur Wingart of 176 South Pless street, was more fortunate. When he heard the grinding, grating sound that warned him the engine had left the tracks he cast one look at the embankment over which the locomotive would plunge the next moment and jumped from the cab to safety. In an instant the train turned; turtle and the escaping stoiun scalded! his back. His wrist was hurt and he was also bruised and cut. When the engine fell on Its side the tender, hurled forward by the Impetus of the train's speed, ran directly over the prostrate engine and stopped in front of it. The baggage car was also hurled forward, and turned a complete rsault behind the engine. F. A. Taylor, an express messenger, of 1520 Pleasant avenue, and the only oc cupant of the baggage car, was thrown Into the center of the oar and a heavy trunk rolled on him. He was bHttMd and hiH left cheek waa cut by flying glass.

Dearmond and Williams Differ Over Measure — Taft Charged with Winning Support While Playing Host By Associated Press. WASHINGTON, March 3.— By a vote of 187 to 69 the house today passed the senate bill providing for the establish ment of an agricultural bank In the Philippines. The passage developed diametrically opposite views of the present two leaders of the minority, Mr. Dearmond of Missouri voting for the measure, while Mr. Williams, the minority leader, •stood squarely against It. The following Democrats voted for the bill: Aiken, South Carolina; Bankhead, Alabama; Dearmond, Missouri; How ard, Georgia; Kline, Pennsylvania; Legare, South Carolina; Ransdell, Louisiana; Ruppert, New York; Sher ley, Kentucky; Small, North Carolina; Taylor, Alabama, and Wiley, Alabama. But two Republicans voted against— Darragh, Michigan, and Mann,. Illi nois. While the bill was under discussion Mr. Rucker of Missouri made the di rect charge that certain men In favor of the bill had been the guests of the secretary of war on his trip to the Philippines last year, which, he said, might account for the position taken by these gentlemen, who were Messrs. Dearmond, Shirley, Wiley and Howard. Best Qualified In reply Mr. Shirley said that the "slur" cast by Mr. Rucker upon the Democrats who voted for the measure was uncalled for, in view of the fact that the man who had seen the Philip pine situation was better able to legis late than the man who had vague Ideas to conditions. The bill was called from the presi dent's table by Mr. Crumpacker, who at once moved to pass it. Mr. Rucker of Missouri was recog nized as a member of the committee. He wanted to know if the bill could be passed without amendment. "The house can pass an elephant under suspension if the party In charge of the measure was recognized for that purpose," replied the speaker. Mr. Crumpacker supported the bill. Mr. Sherley also advocated Its passage as In line of lending much needed as sistance to the Philippines. United States Guilty Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio, who advo cated the bill, expressed the opinion that the United States had been guilty of more wrongs toward the Philippines than Spain had been and Mr. Long worth thought the bank bill should be passed as a crumb of comfort due in the face of failure to pass the Philip pine tariff bill. It was here that Rucker made his charge that Secretary Taft had won the support of members while they were his guests on the Philippines trip. Mr. Parsons of New York asked for an explanation and Mr. Rucker replied that the gentleman knew what he meant. Mr. Parsons replied that the secre tary of war had urged members of the senate and house to go to the Philip pines so that they could intelligently legislate. Mr. Rucker said that he knew noth ing about the trip and that he did not care about that, but it was his opinion that the legislation would haunt the American people as it grows more odious. Mr. Williams said the old Populist scheme of a sub-treasury was an angel in white in comparison with the Philip pine bank scheme and that he would never vote to guarantee "self-seeking, profit-hunting capitalists 4 per cent upon their capital." The senate today concurred In the house amendment to the Philippine ag ricultural bank bill. M'CALLA MAY TAKE MEDAL FROM RULERS By Associated Press.

Sasi Francisco Shipping SAN FRANCISCO, March B.— Sailed: Steamer Santa Rosa. Ban Diego; launch Anauopla, San Pedro. MONDAY MORNING, MARCH 4, 1907. MOTORMAN IS CAUGHT UNDER WRECKED CAR Foot Is Amputated as Result Ten Passengers on Interurban Cut and Bruised When Car Jumps the Track at San Pedro Through the failure of the brakes to operate properly an electric car on the Interurban line was thrown from the tracks and overturned at the foot of the Beacon street hill In San Pedro yesterday afternoon and ten persons who were on board were all more or less Injured, although they all es caped with their lives. The car was bound for San Pedro from Los Angeles. It was due to ar rive in that city at 2:05. At the top of the grade leading toward Fifth street Motorman Gill, who was in charge of the car, turned the brakes with the intention of slackening the speed of the car. The brakes refused to work properly and the car sped down the hill with great momentum. Gill endeavored vainly to turn off the power and set the brakes more firmly, but seeing the uselessness of his efforts turned and shouted to the passengers to prepare to Jump. As the car neared Fifth street Gill grasped the handrail and flung himself from the car. tA the same moment the vehicle left the tracks, flying through the air and pitching over on its side. The motorman was buried beneath it and when rescued by the' wrecking crew, which was hastily summoned, was found to be so severely crushed that it was necessary to amputate his right foot. Brakes Are Troublesome According to passengers ' on the car the motorman had experienced some trouble with the brakes before reach ing San Pedro. The car had traveled at a great speed between Los Angeles and that city and It was necessary to stop at Gardena to allow a hot box to cool. The car was badly smashed by strik ing the pavement and all yesterday afternoon employes of the company were engaged in repairing it so it could be again lifted to the tracks. The accident happened on the busiest corner in San Pedro and hundreds of persons were on the •streets at the time. News of the accident spread through the city and until late last night hundreds of persons stood about viewing the wrecked car. Several of the passengers who were on the car were cut by flying glass and all were bruised considerably. As It was Sunday the car was not as crowded as it usually is. The most seriously injured were: J. M. Watts, 220 East Third street, Los Angeles; cut and bruised. Peter Cooper, 220 East Third street, Los Angeles; cut by flying glass. Mrs. W. A. Hunter, 808 Garland ave nue, Los Angeles; bruised about face and back. Louis Murdock, Los Angeles; bruised about face and shoulders. Roy Gill, motorman; right foot smashed, cut about face and back. SACRAMENTO IS NOW AROUSED Denounces Action of Legislature In Passing Capital Removal Measure. Governor Gillett Declines to Tell His Course By Associated Press. SACRAMENTO, March 3.— ln an in terview with the Associated Press to night Governor Gillett said that the bill submitting the question of remov ing the capital from Sacramento to Berkeley will require his signature. The governor, however, declined to commit himself as to his probable course of action on the measure and would not state whether he would sign the bill, veto It or let It go Into effect without his signature should the legislature be in session for ten days after the bill is sent to him. Governor Gillett said that he had given the subject very little thought and did not expect the measure to reach him until next Thursday, the sixtieth day of the session. While the governor refused to com mit himself his probable action is giv ing the organization leaders who side trucked everything to rush the bill through the legislature but little con cern. They seemed to be satisfied that the governor will not veto the bill, but will pass it up to the people. Sacramento Is thoroughly aroused over the danger of losing the capital, and the action of the legislature Is bitterly denounced. VETERAN SOAP MAKER DIES IN GLASTONBURY By Associated Press.

EDDY CLEARNESS OF MIND IN NO RESPECT IMPAIRED Gen. Streeter Says Reported Wealth Has Been Grossly Multiplied. Frye Assisted in Busi ness Affairs By Associated Press. CONCORD, N. H., March 3.— Gen. Frank S. Streeter, legal adviser of Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy, issued "a statement tonight replying to various allegations in. the bill of equity which has been brought agaii.st trustees and directors of the Christian Science church by relatives of Mrs. Eddy with the view of obtaining an accounting of funds. Gen. Streeter cays: "Tn common with her many friends she believes that initiative was not taken by her son or other relatives, but by others whom in a markedly unusual manner and by unique meth ods are undertaking under the guise of court proceedings to continue the persecution begun some time ago. "From my conference with her at the time and on recent occasions I am able to speak definitely and positively. Her clearness of mind and resolute ness of purpose has been In no respect impaired by her advanced years. "Her capacity to think clearly and to deal accurately and justly with Im portant business affairs lias never been more perfectly demonstrated than in her conference and acts of the last two weeks, and In numerous letters In her own handwriting which I have received from her during that time. "The amount of Mrs. Eddy's prop erty has been grossly multiplied . by rumor and unfounded report. She Is not possessed of large wealth as the term Is used. Mrs. Eddy receives no income from the church publication society. Her sole Income for many years has been from the copyright on her own books and the amount from this source has been overestimated. "Mrs. Eddy's business affairs have been managed by herself, with the aid of Mr. Frye and under the over sight and personal audit of another gentleman whose name has not been mentioned but who stands for all that is honorable and of good repute in financial circles in Concord. Accurate accounts of all her property and in vestments, as well as her annual in come and expenditures have been care fully kept and frequently audited. The last audit was in October, 1906." "None of the defendants named ex cept Mr. Frye has any connection with the management of her property or in vestments or has any knowledge what ever in reference thereto, nor have any of the said defendants received any property of Mrs. Eddy which they hold in trust or otherwise except In one Instance for the benefit of a re lation." It was learned to night that at about 4 o'clock last Friday, the day on which the bill in equity was filed, a messen ger from George W. Glover of Dead wood, S. D., son of Mrs. Eddy, de livered to her a letter In which Mr. Glover stated his purpose of beginning the suit. At 4:50 o'clock that afternoon Rev. Irving C. Tomlinson, one of the de fendants named in the suit, left Con cord, his mission being, it is said, to go to Mr. Glovor. Mr. Tomllnson is said to have in his possession ror de livery to Mr. Glover a deed of trust for a certain sum of money, variously , estimated tit from 1100,000 to $260,000. This money, it is declared, was to bo delivered to Glover on three conditions, as follows: First — That neither he nor his household should make any further de mands on Mrs. Eddy. Second — That they should offer no objections to the probating of any will that might be offered after her death. Third— That they should not seek by any legal proceedings to set aside any gifts, deeds or conveyances that Mrs. Eddy might make during her lifetime. Meanwhile John W. Kelly of Ports mouth, one of the attorneys interested In bringing the proceedings, has filed the bill In equity with the clerk of the superior court and notified Mr. Street er, counsel for Mrs. Eddy, at the fact. Mr. Ktreeter had a lon* < (inference with Mr. Kelly and Mr. Martin dur ing which he made It known that the deed of trust was to be given to Mr. Glover. This conference came to an end when Mr. Streeter was Informed that the fact thut the. bill had been til been given to the press and Mr. Street er then recalled Mr. Toinllnson from his mission.

EUREKA, Cal., March 3.— Humboldt bar nearly claimed another victim to day when the steamer Oakland In an attempt to reach the inside entrance ran on the rocks of the south Jetty. For almost an hour the Oakland re mained on the rocks and the bar tug Ranger was called to her assistance by the life saving crews. When the tug reached the Oakland Capt. Krager of the Oakland refused aid. A big wave washed the Oakland from her perilous position, but also tore off her rudder. For several hours she drifted helplessly and perilously near the rocks. The lifeboat, commanded by Capt. Hennlg, put out. At this timo the Oakland raised distress signals and once more the tug Ranger went to her assistance, towing her this time into the bay, where she was beached In a badly leaking condition. There are several large holes in her stern. The Oakland went on the rocks about 1000 feet from the wrecked Co rona. Several attempts have been made to reach the Corona by the Humboldt bay life saving station today, but all were futile. On one trip the lifeboat barely escaped destruction on the rocks of north jetty. Capt. Boyd and a crew of men are aboard the ship, making preparations to unload part of the cargo. The Corona Is In the same position, but has sunk some feet and is con tinually awash. RED STAR STEAMER VADERLAND ASHORE ON GOODWIN SANDS By Associated Press. LONDON.

DOVER, March 3.— A tug has been sent from Dover to the aasltsance of the Vaderland, which is ashore on East Goodwin sands. The position of the steamer is not believed to be danger ous. The fog is so dense that it is im possible to see the distance of a ship's length. So extensive is the list of groundings that the number of tugs available is Inadequate for the calls for assist ance. Unless there is improvement In the situation King Edward's departure for the continent tomorrow will be de layed. Two or three other vessels have grounded on Goodwin Sands. Many collisions are reported. The German steamers Marsaila and Helene collided and the Heleno sank and eight of her crew were drowned.

MAY ADJOURN AS SALARY CEASES LEGISLATORS PREPARING TO SHUT SHOP Japanese Question Will Be Made the Special Order of Business Some Day This Week at Sacramento By Associated Press. SACRAMENTO, March 3.— Within four days of the sixtieth day of the ses sion when the salary of the members will cease and with 300 measures still before the senate and 340 in the as sembly the principal topic today among legislators was the probable length of the session. Leaders in the upper house freely ex press their opinion that the legislature will adjourn next Saturday and declare that It will not be the fault of the senate if the session extends beyond this week. In the assembly, however, It is believed that the legislature will not adjourn before a week from next AVednesday and will in all probability be in session for two weeks yet. Reso lutions will be Introduced in both houses to fix the end of the session and a joint conference committee ap pointed to decide upon the day of ad journment, i The assembly has passed and sent to the senate 447 bills, of which 123 passed the uper house. The senate sent to the assembly 342 bills, of which ninety-four passed the lower house. Thirty-one assembly and nine senate bills have been approved by the gov ernor and forty-seven assembly bills are at present before the government. While there are still a large number of measures before both houses for con sideration, with but a few exceptions the most important bills are out of the way. The matter which Is causing the leaders the most perplexity is the Japanese question. This Is especially true in the senate, where the few Democrats have repeatedly attempted to force the issue. Senator Wolfe has promised that the Japanese question will be made a special order of busi ness In the senate for some day this T.eek. In the lower house there is a disposition among members to adjourn and leave the matter in the hands of President Roosevelt. The woman's suffrage measure will come up in the senate tomorrow for reconsideration. It has twice been de feated. Senator Bell will try to force Eshelman's anti-race track bill on the floor by introducing a resolution re calling the measure from committee, where it has been since it was passed by the assembly. There is very little likelihood of its being passed by the upper house. The most Important contest still on the files is the Fresno-Kings county controversy, the second round of which will be fought in the senate Tuesday. The Orange county division bill and the bill cutting off a slice from Tulare county and adding It to Fresno are not taken seriously, as neither house Is in any mood to be trifled with this late in the session. The general appropriation bill to which the senate finance committee added $125,000 will meet with opposition when It Is returned to the assembly. One hundred and eight amendments have been added to the bill since it came from the committee on ways and means. The assembly committee has disagreed with the senate committee and has added a provision to the stan dard form of policy permitting certain "riders" which were barred by the in surance committee of the upper house. To expedite the passage of bills res olutions will be introduced in both houses tomorrow limiting debate ex cept In special orders to five minutes.

WASHINGTON, March 3.— The fill, bustor against the ship subsidy bill was begun throughout the session today and assumed a humorous vein under the direction of Senator Carmack, much to the enjoyment of the crowded galleries. The speakers on the subsidy bill were interrupted frequently to permit the passing of minor bills, the adoption of conference reports and the transaction of other business incidental to the clos ing 1 hours of the session. During the day and night the con ference reports on the pension and general deficiency bills were agreed to and there was a long discussion of the report on the La Follette rc.ilroad em ployes bill, which was sent back to con ference. A report was afterward agreed upon by the conferees, but the report had not been acted upon when at 11:40 the senate took a recess until 9:30 o'clock tomorrow morning. The conference report on the sundry civil bill was agreed to at the last minute, but the ship subsidy bill had not been acted on. The filibuster against the ship sub sidy bill was continued when the sena tors resumed Its session at 8:30 o'clock. Senators Dubois and Carmack made an appeal to Senator Gallinger to with draw the bill, but he did not comply. The debate was interrupted by the passing of a resolution for the print ing- of a document on horses, which brought out from Senator Carter the remark: "That's a horse on the Democratic side." This sally aroused the venerable Sen ator Pettus of Alabama, who remarked: "We accept the rebuke from the sen ator from Montana because of his wis dom and long experience, and don't fail to recall that he has the record for speaking for more than twenty hours to kill a river and harbor bill." SENATORS RELISH CARMACK'S FIGHT OVER SUBSIDY BILL By Associated Press. WASHINGTON, March 3.— Never be fore has the senate appeared to relish so much an attempt to kill legislation by filibustering methods. Mr. earmark, director of the minor ity movement against the bill, at no time tried to hide the fact that hia effort was a filibuster, pure and simple. He came into the open by addressing himself principally to the term "fili busters," which Gallinger only yester day applied to the Democratic senators who have undertaken to defeat tho measure.
