Opelika, Oct. 5.—(Special.)—A terrible head-end collision occurred this morning on the Atlanta and West Point railroad, in which an accommodation passenger train and the fast mail train for New Orleans were completely wrecked and the engineer of the mail train killed. Train No. 35, bound south, and train No. 12, bound north, had orders to meet at Red Oak, a small Western station twelve miles south of Atlanta. The engineer on train No. 35 overlooked his orders and ap proached the station, at which he did not ordinarily stop, at a good rate of speed. The conductor, noticing that his train was going by the meeting point, pulled the whistle signal for the engineer to stop, but before the train could stop the northound train came In sight around a sharp curve and they met with a dreadful crash. Both engines are com pletely demolished and several cars wrecked. Engineer Atkins was killed and Mail Clerk Walthall was slightly bruised. Several of the passengers were jarred considerably, but fortunately no serious injuries were sustained. President Smith came to the scene of the accident on a special train, and a large force was' put to work to clear the wreck. All trains were delayed eight hours, but traffic has been resumed. The dead engineer was very popular and had only recently mar ried. Montgomery, Oct. 5.—(Special.)—Mr. Alex Atkins, the engineer who was killed in the Atlanta wreck today, was one of the most popular and respected railroad men of this city. He married only two years ago, and his young wife is pros trated with grief. His remains reached here tonight.

Benton, chairman o£ the executive committee of the republi can state committee. Benton was made the temporary chairman of the conven tion and Daniel Kent, secretary of the state committee, was made temporary secretary. Prayer was offered by Rev. John Cuckson .of the Arlington Street church. The usual committees were then appointed. Hon. Frank D. Allen, mem ber, made the report of the committee on permanent organization, naming Curtis Guild, Jr., of Boston and Daniel Kent of Leicester, respectively, permanent chair man and secretary of the convention, with a long list of vice-presidents and as sistant secretaries. Mr. Guild on assuming the chair was received with enthusiastic applause. His address wras received with applause. The report of the committee on creden tials showed that out of 2013 delegates, constituting a full convention, 1939 were present. Hon. Frederick H. Gillet, chair man, then read the report of the commit tee on resolutions. Upon national polit ical issues It says: ■ First and foremost stands protection. Our opponents when seeking votes de nounced it as injurious, immoral and un constitutional; when clothed with the re sponsibility of power they enacted a tar iff which was avowedly and Intentionally protective. But while It recognizes the principle of protection as wise and nec essary, their bill is so unequal and un fair as to deserve all the scathing denun ciations with which they themselves bap tized it. It Joes not give protection aB a right to all, but sells it as a favor to some, it is partial, sectional and hypocritical. The protection we uphold is equal and universal. We are not pledged to any schedules. We only pledge to each Amer ican Industry such protection as shall equalize differences in the price of labor and to that the farmer and the miner Is as much entitled as the manufacturer and artisan In determining that we are not bound by precedence or by theories; we are governed by the teachings of ex perience, and are as ready to learn from the experiments from our adversaries as of ourselves, from failure as well as from success. vve Denve tnat to Keep outgo less man income is an axiom of public as well as private economy; that a large surplus is less menacing than a large deficit,' and that redeeming government bonds even at a high price is more creditable than issuing new ones. We believe in sound and honest money', that a depreciated currency unsettles legitimate business and turns it into speculation; that the government sliouVl maintain each dollar it issues on a par with Its standard gold dollar, and should not permit the free coinage of silver at any ratio not established by international agreement. No other policy could expect to find friends in Massachusetts, which under sorest temptation held the spirit of Its institutions sacred, refused to avail itself of legal tender laws, paid its creditors with the best and most ex pensive dollars and thus maintained Its credit and honor untarnished and su preme. We regret that the action and Inaction of the democratic majority in congress has forced the national treasury to a humiliating dependency upon private bankers, and believe that there should be legislation to protect the metallic re serve from concerted attacks of specula tors. We believe that this hemisphere is no longer a subject for European coloniza tion or~ aggressive and oppressive occu pation; that the Monroe doctrine is a true guide for American statesmanship and should be maintained towards small nations without blustering, towards great nations without cringing, but always de liberately, temperately, resolutely. We belive in civil service reform, not only as a promoter of efficient service,but also as an antidote to that demoralizing spirit which considers public office only a bribe or reward. The tide of Immigration which has done so much to quicken our national growth has in recent years changed and deteriorated in its character. We believe that our country has reached that stage of development when it needs not so much more men as better men; that the population is already so heterogeneous that our most urgent task is to elevate and assimilate it rather than increase it by foreign Importation; that our self respecting labor should be protected; and we desire no further immigrants who are not intelligent, self-supporting, ready to cast off all foreign allegiance and to en ter into full and permanent sympathy with our free institutions. In this task of elevating and Americanizing our popula tion we recognize as the most potent agcoi our nee puunc sellouts, 10 wnoae perpetual nuaintenance the republican party lias long been pledged. We are opposed to any appropriation of public funds to sectarianism purposes. Religious and race partisanship has for many years been manifest to the dem ocratic party in Massachusetts, lias weakened that sentiment of pure Amer icanism which ought to control all public action and has resulted in counter irri tation and antagonism. We deplore the existence In politics of such inflaming and estranging issues. We believe that church and state should be separate and Independent in fact as well as In theory; that neither should In vade the province of the othe’-; that sec tional animosities should be buried and forgotten. We believe that the saloon breeds crime and poverty and is a proper-subject of executive and municipal »'strlcflon, and that laws as Increasingly rigid as can be enforced strictly and univer<ta41g are the best hopes of the progressive temperance. * The platform was received with 1 en thusiasm and unanimously adopted.

Oot. 5.—(Special.)—The en gineers, firemen and trainmen of the fifth and sixth divisions of the Southern rail way are greatly exercised over recent in structions requiring freight crews to switch their trains on arrival at Me ridian. Rome and Cleveland. Up to to night ten have been discharged for re fusing to obey the instructions. Freight men running from Selma to Rome and from Atlanta to Cleveland are on duty sixteen hours, and at the completion of their runs they are required to switch their trains, which means from one to four hours additional work. Vice-Presi dent Baldwin's agreement, which he vol untarily made with the men last spring and which they accepted without a mur mur, expressly stipulates that a crew reaching the end of their run,, after twelve hours’ work, shall have eight hours’ rest. The recent instructions are 111 direct violation of this agreement. The men are very much exercised over the sit uation, and there is considerable strike talk. Cooler heads advise that the mat ter be taken up through the proper chan nels before harsh steps are resorted to. A strike on the Southern, If inaugurated at this time, would prove disastrous to the entire south. No wonder Johif Pox’s Sons lead.

BALTIMORE NOT IN IT, Cleveland Administered Another Severe Drub bing to the Champions, Making it Four Straights. Cleveland, O., Oct. 6.—Cleveland ad ministered the most severe drubbing to Baltimore today that Ihe Temple cup series has seen. Young was a complete puzzle, and they faced him like defeated men from the beginning. The only chance the pennant winners had to. score was In the eighth, when they bunched their singles and Keeler crossed the plate. Tebeau's men hit McMahon about when they pleased. 8lx of their seven runs Were earned. Both teams put up mag nificent games in the field. McKean and Kelly made the only errors,and they were excusable ones. Kelly’s was a bad throw to the plate from centerfleld, on which Young scored.* McKean fumbled a hot grounder. The crowd numbered nearly 15,000. There were more people on the grounds than In the stands, and a two base hit ground rule was made. This robbed Blake of a home rup hit In the seventh. Tho ball went to centerfleld fence. Hits by Burkett, Childs, McAl eer and Pat Tebeau and a stolen base bjl McAleer netted three runs for Cleve land in the first. They made three more in the seventh on doubles by Blake and Childs, singles by McGarr and Young and a sacrifice by Burkett. Doubles by Zimmer and McGarr accorded the last run in the eighth. During the game a diamond stud valued at $200 was pre sented to MoKeap and a handsome bird gun and case to Cuppy. They were the gifts of local admirers. The Baltimore club leaves for home tonight. The Clevelands leave for Baltimore Sunday. Although the crowd today was the larg est that ever attended a ball game in this cLty, there was no rowdyism and the Baltimore players got as fair treatment as the Cleveland men. The reports that Baltimore playerB were assaulted at the first two games are absolutely untrue.

The halls of the Montezuma were bril liantly lighted Friday night, and at an early hour any one not knowing what was up would have been satisfied by the constant stream of gayly dressed pass ers-by, all going In the same direction, that something unusual was expected. The hall was soon filled to its utmost ca pacity. Tho crowd, though large, was perfectly orderly, and gave eager atten tion to the music and recitation, both of which were fine. The Montezuma looks quite nice and clean inside, and Dr. Lovett will certain ly have It repainted to be in keeping with everything else. School will begin on Monday, with fair prospects for a new school.
