VOLUME 22r. BIRMINGHAM, ALA., WEDNEBDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1895. NUMBER. 10. MR, CARLISLE'S SPEECH Delivered at the Chamber of Commerce Dinner. HE MENTIONS HIS TROUBLES And Asks That Greenbacks Be Substituted for Interest Bearing Bonds. AN UNEQUIVOCAL PLATFORM WANTED Be Says the People Should Have a Chance to Express Their Wishes-Cleveland Alludes to the Free Silver Move ment as Financial Madness. New York, Nov. 19. —The chamber of commerce held its 127th annual banquet tonight at Delmonlco’s. The banquet hall was decorated with stars and stripes and the greatest enthusiasm prevailed. .Alexander K. Orr, president of the cham ber of commerce, presided, and around him were seated besides the speakers of the evening Hon. Carl Schurz, Rear Ad miral Henry Erben, Mayor Strong, Hon. Hilary A. Herbert, Hon. Judge Harmon, Gen. Thomas H. Ruger, Commander Montgomery Card. J. N. Constable. W. H. Webb, Calvin S. Brice, Gen. Horace Porter, J. Edward Simmons, John Jucob Astor and James G. Cannon. The meet ing was called to order by President Orr, who Introduced the Hon. John G. Car lisle, secretary of the treasury, who spoke on “our currency questions" as follows: iwo years ago l said lo you that the disposition and ubllity of the govern ment to maintain its own credit at the highest standard and lo preserve the integrity of all the forms of currency in circulation among the people could not be reasonably doubted and ought not to be the subject of further controversy. While scarcely any one now seriously doubts either the disposition or the abil ity of the executive branch of the gov ernment to accomplish these objects, all who have given any attention to the subject must realize that in the exist ing state of our constitution the task is both difficult and expensive. Since the declaration was made here interest bearing bonds to the amount of $142,315, 400 have been issued to procure gold for the redemption of the United States notes and treasury notes, and the obli gations of the government account of the notes still remain the same as at the beginning. The notes are redeemed, but they are unpaid, and if our constitution is not changed no matter how often they bi paid and redeemed hereafter,’they will remain unpaid. If this policy of re demption and reissue is continued the Interest bearing debt will be greatly in creased, while the non-interest hearing debt will not be in the least diminished. The disadvantages of such a system are so obvious that it is hardly necessary to enumerate them. The government has undertaken to keep an unlimited amount of circulating notes equal In value to gold coin and at the same time It has no legal authority to compel any body to give it gold in exchange for the notes or to pay gold on any demand due to it. "Although the amount of United States notes is fixed at $345,681,000 and the amount of treasury notes outstanding is a little over $140,000,000, yet the total amount that may be presented for re demption is unlimited, because there is no restriction as to the number of times the same note may be returned to the treasury and exchanged for gold. The fundamental vice in our currency system is the legal tender note, redeemable in coin by the government and relssuable under the law. This threatens the stabil ity of the whole volume of our currency and has caused immense losses by fluc tuations, of which it Is impossible to keep the public aware. It was never con templated that the government should convert itself into a hank of issue. The treasury department is simply a public agency for the management of the finan cial affairs of the government. The cir culation of legal tender United States notes and treasury notes has a tendency to drive out of use and out of the country nit? vt-ry com in wiucn me government is compelled to redeem them, end It. has ex pelled millions of dollars from our bor ders. No other government In the world Is required to supply gold from Its treas ury to discharge the private obligations of Its citizens, and no government ought to be required to do so. The fact that the government is required to borrow money Is an In.lury to Its credit and the credit of its people; but the Injury resulting from this cause Is Insignificant In comparison with the ruin that would follow an aban donment of the reserve while the notes are outstanding; for all of our currency would thus be reduced to the silver standard. The theories that the gov ernment can create money by placing its stamp upon paper; that legislative en actment can make BO cents equal to 100 cents; that artificially Inflated prices, paid in a depreciated currency, are bet ter for the people than natural prices, paid in a sound currency; and various other vaguerles are all directly attributa ble to the long continued use of legal tender paper money. “The proposition that a promise of the government to pay money as money Is Just as absurd as the proposition that a promise to deliver a. horse Is a horse. The agitation of the free coinage of legal tender silver at a ratio which would put only 50 cents worth of bullion in a silver dollar Is predicated upon the same vicious principle. The United States note was a forced loan from the people to the government, which the govern ment promises to repay in dollars, but the free coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1 or at any other ratio not correspond ing with the commercial value of the two metals would be a forced loan from the people to the owners of silver mines and silver bullion without a promise of repayment by anybody. One loan was forced for the benefit of the government in a time of war. but the proposition of the advocates of free coinage Is to force another loan for the benefit of private Individuals and corporations In a time of profound peace. In principle the two measures are precisely alike. “The free coinage of legal tender silver would be far more unjust than the Issue of legal tender United States notes. However, it is not my purpose now to discuss the question of free coinage. I think the abandonment or suspension of the aggressive movement against this financial heresy would be most unwise at this time, especially in view of the fact that a concerted effort Is evidently now being made In the south and west to re gain the greater lost during the last six months. If the friends of a sound measure of value a^e vigilant this effort cannot possibly succeed. /‘But the legal tender notes will re main to complicate the currency system until congress agrees to their retirement and substitution of others In their places. This legislation Is Imperatively demand ed, as It concerns the welfare of all the people:” The secretary further said: "Neither the cotton of the south nor the wheat c-f the west would be worth very much if there Were no roads to carry It and no merchants or bankers to supply the means for its transfer from one to an other. The merchant and banker cannot prosper when the farmer and mechanics are Idle or only partially employed, nor can the farmer or mechanic prosper when the operations of the merchant and bank er are prohibited or improperly obstruct ed. No nation can reasonably hope to control the trade of any considerable part of the world or even to realize the full benefits of Its own trade, until Its • exchanges are based upon a standard cf value recognized as sound and perma nent In all the centers of commerce. "The pound sterling has made Uondon not only the principal market, but the clearing house of the whole world. No matter what character of currency other nations ,may use, at no matter what standard of value they may adopt, all their International balances are subject ed at last to the test of the pound sterl ing. "With an inferior currency we could never successfully contest her suprem acy, and the belief that we can punish her, or enrich ourselves by destroying the value of our own money is one of the most remarkable delusions of the age. We are great enough and strong enough to maintain our commercial and financial Independence In opposition to any coun try of the world, but in order to do so we must be allowed to use as effective in strumentalities as are employed by our rivals.” The speaker closed with a hope that the political platforms of both the great parties would henceforth be clear and unequivocal. "If a majority of the people of the United States are in favor of the main tenance of the present standard of value and opposed to the free and unlimited coinage of legal tender silver they ought to have an opportunity to say so in a form which will preclude all controversy las to whether they have said so or not. On the other hand. If a majority of the people are in favor of abandoning the present standard of value and establish ing silver monometallism by the free and unlimited coinage of that metal into full legal tender money they should have an opportunity to say that. When this is di rectly presented we need not fear the result.” The other toasts responded to were "Our Domestic Commerce,” by Hon. Ju lius C. Burrows: "National Development and Opportunity.” by Hon. Charles Em ory Smith: “The City of New York.” by Mayor Strong, and "Kthics In Politics,” by Rev. Dr. M. W. Stryker. Among the letters of regret iread was the following: CiACCuim.’ iviri im iuii, Washington, D. C., Nov. 1!). My Dear Mr. Orr: I am sorry that I feel obliged to write It; but you must let me off from the chamber of commerce dinner this year. There never was a time when my admiration for this Im portant business organization was so great, and I am sure that the recent ef forts of its members to save the country from the havoc of financial madness ought to be appreciated by every patri otic citizen. I would enjoy exceedingly a renewal of my association with my frlends^.t the chamber at their banquet board; but the trouble is, I cannot attend this year and do the things required of me here in the way of official duty. Very truly yours. GROVER CLEVELAND. A letter of regret was also read from Gov. Levi P. Morton, who stated that of ficial engagements prevented him from being present. A Death at a Funeral. Savannah, Ga., Nov. 19.—Mrs. Louisa Porter Gilmer, widow of the late Gen. J. F. Gilmer, chief of the engineer corps of the Confederate army, and a sister of Gen. E. P. Alexander, dropped dead to day in Bona Venture cemetery, while standing by the grave of Miss Chisholm, who died in New York Sunday, during the progress of the burial services. Mrs. Gilmer was 71 years of age and death re sulted from apoplexy. While the clergy man was offering a prayer she fell back ward and died almost instantly in the arms of those around her. Mrs. Gilmer was a member of the Alexander family of Wilkes county, Georgia, one of ten children nnd the first to die. She was prominent in charities, was president of the Telafar hospital and a patroness of the Louisa Porter home. PARROT AND MONKEY TIME Members of the Convention Voted to Raise Their Per Diem and Then Got Scared at What They Did. Columbia, S. C., Nov. 19.—The consti tutional convention today continued the consideration of the article on education, and at 2:20 p. m. passed it to a third reading subject to a good many amend ments then to be considered. The clause providing for a negro agricultural. In dustrial and mechanical college was amended so as to divorce the present Clofiin collgp from Claflin university, and allowing negro teachers only to be employed. The article as amended puts the dispensary profits, exclusive of those given to counties and cities, into the an nual public Bchool funds. The constitutional convention had a regular parrot and monkey time tonight. The legislature last year fixed the per diem of the members at $2 a day. An ordinance to provide for the disburse ment of the $30,000 appropriated to de fray the expenses of the convention was taken up tonight, and it provides for a per diem of $4 for members after October 15 last and to the final adjournment. The convention rushed ahead and adopted this and then increased the pay of all employes until the per diem pro vided amounted to about $55,000. Eighty nine members came to the hall pledged to vote themselves $4 a day, so Senator Tillman stated on the floor, and no one denied the assertion. When they real ized what they had dope and how much they, had voted on attempt was made to recall the ae.tion by conservative-minded members. Amid the greatest confusion the convention finally left all the em ployes at a low rate and voted them selves a per diem of $4, this conclusion being reached a few minutes before mid night. _ The Uiasion Loss Is 9100,000. Boston, Nov. 19.—A telegram received by the American board this afternoon by way of Phlllopolls confirms the United Press dispatch stating that the loss at Harpol Is $100,000; that- the raiders were protected by soldiers, who fired on the mission houses and JoilUed in their plun der: .that’ special malfee was shown to ward the missionaries; that a shell burst In Missionary Barnum’s house and that the missionaries are now protected. The Information is that additional troubles are reported as beginning in Marsovan, Van and Alntaine. PUGH IS IN THE RACE For Re-election to the United States Senate. ANNOUNCES IN PLAIN TERMS That He Is a Candidate for One Office Oniy. THE SENATORS SPEAK AT UNION SPRINGS Today—Gratified at Their Reception Wher ever They Have Spoken—That Depot Story — Feck-Dillard and Me Callum-Thornton Marriages. Montgomery, Nov. 19.—(Special.)—The Impression has gone out that Senator Pugh stated in his speech at Livingston that he was not a candidate for re-elec tion to the senate. A report of Governor Oates' speech at Clayton yesterday in dicates that the governor was under the impression the senator had so declared. Colonel Pugh was asked by your corre spondent today about the matter and replied that his name would certainly go before the caucus of the next general as sembly—that he was a candidate for one office only, and that was the senatorship. Senator Pugh was very much gratified with the results of his series of speeches with Senator Morgan. He said they had been greeted with large audiences and the most hospitable reception every where. He said the audience at Tuska lnosa was smaller than elsewhere on ac count of the rain. He was enthusiastic about the meeting at Thomasville yes terday. The senators will speak at Union Springs tomorrow. That Depot Story. The Advertiser this morning contains another wild story about It being a fact that Montgomery Is to have right away a handsome new union depot. The facts and all the facts briefly stated are these: Last month the board of aldermen ap pointed a committee to look Into the mat ter of a new depot for Montgomery. The committee wrote President Smith of the Louisville and Nashville, asking his co operation, or something of that sort. Mr. Smith wrote them ti! call on Colonel Falkner, the head of the company’s law department in Alabama. They called and Colonel Falkner advised them to con fer with the authorities of the (other roads, looking to a conference in the mat ter, and that is all there Is to it. None of the roads appear to have committed themselves in any way. It is sincerely hoped that the depot will be built. It Is needed badly enough and the council committee are making an Industrious, and, it Is devoutly hoped, a satisfactory start towards getting it. Peck—Dillard. Miss Gena Dillard and Mr. William Peck were married at the home of the bride’s parents this morning and left im mediately on a bridal tour. The marri age ceremony was witnessed by a number of friends of the bride and groom, and the presents were numerous and costly. The young couple are deservedly popular. The bride is a sister of Mrs. W. F. Smith, Mrs. Dr. Luckle and Mrs. Judge A. C. Howze of Birmingham. McCallum—Thornton. Mr. D. Kingsley McCallum of Jackson ville, Fla., was married at the Methodist church at 11 o’clock this morning to Miss Annie Louise Thornton of this city. Miss Thornton enjoys the reputation of being perhaps the most beautiful woman in the state, and her personal graces, together with her charms of mind and heart, have endeared her to a large circle of friends here. Mr. McCallum is one of the fore most young business men of Florida. Circuit Clerk Appointed. Governor Oates today appointed Henry J. Law circuit clerk for Covington county, vice W. J. Mosely, who recently ran away to escape the service of a true bill charging him with having burned the court house. Death of Mr*. Marks. Mro. Katherine A. Marks, one of Mont gomery’s oldest and most highly es teemed women, died at her residence in this city tonight surrounded by her fam ily and friends. Mrs. Marks was in her 86th year, and had perhaps a larger fam ily connection in Montgomery than any other Individual. Her funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon. Proposition Accepted. Governor Oates today accepted the proposition of the defense In the Robin son impeachment case, agreeing to pay $100 of the cost of taking the defendant’s testimony, and the supreme court au thorized Commissioner Sayre to proceed with the work and report it to the court on December 20.

THE BLOODTHIRSTY KURDS Are Getting Entirely Beyond the Porte’s Control, THE SULTAN HAS NO TROOPS Ht May Be Compelled to Admit His Inability to Restore Order. THE‘MISSIONARIES ARE PROTECTED The Turkish Soldiers Are More Aggressive Than the Kurds Themselves and Thousands of Christians Are Being Slaughtered. London, Nov. 19.—The latest advices received from the representatives of the United Press in Constantinople say the sultan appears to be greatly alarmed over the Btate of affairs In Asia Minor, which has unquestionably reached a point beyond his control. He spent the entire night of November 16 by the side of a telegraph Instrument In the Vlldlz place, personally dictating to the oper ator dispatches conveying instructions to the various provincial governors In Asia Minor, commanding them to spare no effort to restore order, and his anx iety to escape from the tolls In which he has Involved himself has within the last few days been displayed in many other ways. The lack of troops with which to suppress Kurdish outbreaks and so re strain the blood-thirstiness of the Kurds and to guarantee order in future Is being greatly felt, and the porte may yet be compelled to admit Us total inability to restore affairs in Asia Minor to the con dition demanded by the powers. runner details ot me recent massa cres at Kharput have been received, showing that the Kurds first made an attempt upon one part of the town and were repulsed by the Armenians. In furiated at this, they proceeded in a body to the American mission quarter, where they ransacked houses and set fire to them, the burned buildings, in cluding eight, belonging to the mission Itself. The Kurds were supported in their attack by the Turkish troops, who should have preserved order. Instead of doing so, or even attempting to do so, the troops were in the thick of the pillage and bloodshed. It is safe to say, upon the strength of the advices received, that almost if not quite as many Armenians were killed by Turks as by Kurds. 1'iie authorities succeeded in protect ing the missionaries who took refuge in pieces of safety, but were powerless, even If they had the desire, to protect the other Christians. The massacre took place on November 16. The Kurdish raiders, report says, were joined by the Turkish soldiers, who assisted them throughout the massacre. They were more aggressive in many cases than the Kurds themselves. Be sides joining In the sacking of the houses, they did the greater part of the firing upon American buildings, being armed with superior weapons. A shell was thrown into the house occupied by Dr. N. H. Barnum of Leicester, Mass., with his family, where It exploded, but fortunately none of the household was hurt. The raiders and their military al lies showed especial malice towards for eigners. No accurate estimate of the number of Christians killed is possible, but It Is known that hundreds if not thousands of them were slaughtered throughout the vilayet. The value of the missionary property destroyed was probably $100,000. The American mis sitjps are being amply protected now, and United States Minister Terrell has obtained from the porte an order for the stationing of a guard around every house occupied by Americans, as well as a guard for the interior of ench building. A Canadian missionary named Marlin was terribly beaten and afterwards Im prisoned at Fekkeh. near Padjln. where he was detained sixteen hours before he was released. GEORGIA DAY A SUCCESS, The Weather Was Fine and 'the Attendance Exceeded That of Any Previous Day, President’s No» Excepted. Atlanta, Nov. 19.—Georgia day wag an Ideal one so far as the weather was con cerned and proved also a beautiful day for the exposition. Monday night's trains weire brought In double sections, with freight engines to help push them in, and this morning all the trains ran with extra cars, and some with double sec tions.’ People were packed in the cars and on the platforms, and the street cafs and the Southern railway had all they could do to move the people to the exposition grounds without the help of hacks and herdlcks. By 2 o'clock the turnsiiles showed larger admissions than any previous day, not excepting president's day. People were here from aU garts of Georgia and some from ad joining1 states. The first center of at traction was the auditorium, where a legislative programme had been prepared in honor of the state. A Joint committee of tike Mouse and senate, headed by Sen ator'Walter C. Beeks, took charge of the oceaylon. First came the reviev;. of the exhibitors’ association. The exhibitors sat In reserved seats in front of the stage, wearing badges. They were men representing most of the leading manu factured of the United States and some fronr (Other countries. Chairman Berks first addressed himself to the exhibitors, thanMirg them in behalf of the people of Georgia for their help In making this exposition. President Johnston of the ex hibitors' association introduced Mr. Ben nett of Ne York, who made a telling reply, in which he stated the exhibitors considered it an honor to have partici pated In the exposition, the greatest in the world’s history, with the single ex ception of the Chicago fair in 1893, and congratulated the people of Georgia and the entire south upon this magnificent exhibition of their resources and their enterprises. The speeches were short and much to the point. Chalman Beeks. W. H. Vena ble, president of the senate, and W. H. Fleming, speaker of the house, were the prfncipal speakers present on the stage. Hon. Albert Cox was Introduced as or ator for the colonial committee. He traced the history of the state in the different phases of Its life, and concluded with a tribute to the state and glorious prophecy for the future. . . . Sir Alfred Moloney Pleased. Sir Alfred Moloney, the governor of British Honduras, is In the city today, and spent the day at the exposition In company with Evan P. Howell, Con gressman Livingston and others. After attending the exercises of Georgia day he visited the agricultural building and the mines and forestry buildings. He ex pressed much surprise at what he saw and remarked upon the good educational value of such an exposition. After an other day of sight-seeing, he will return to New York. Midway as Lively as Ever. Six of the attractions of the midway were closed temporarily last, night and this morning their proprietors were tined $100 each because of alleged Immorality of the ballyhoos or actresses used in front of the shows to draw crowds. The midway has been exceedingly noisy, the spielers vieing with each other in mak ing the most noise to attract the atten tion of the crowd. The beauty show, the Parisian novelty show, the eolloseUm, the trocadero. the gypsy village and "A Night in Egypt” were the places closed up. This morning after payment of the fines all except the gypsy village were allowed to resume business upon promis ing to discontinue the ballyhoos. Hy 1 o’clock today the midway was as lively as ever, with the exception that no hally hoos were seen In front of the palaces. Some of the concessionaires paid their fines under protest. A New Trial Necessary. Columbus, O.. Nov. 19.—The trjal of Col. A. B. Coit for the killing of the cit izens In the Washington court house riots will have to begin over again. Upon the certificate of two physicians Juror Whltsell Is a victim of heart disease and will in all probability never be better and liable to die at any moment If sub ject to the least excitement. Upon re ceiving this professional Information the jury was discharged from further con sideration of the ease. The trial Is set for December 2, when a new Jury will be impaneled and the case again begun. It Is said that every juryman of the old jury was for acquittal, they having ex pressed themselves since being dis charged. The costs in this case, which must, as in any case other than convic tion. come out of the treasury of Fay ette county, amount at the present time to between $10,000 and $12,000. Colonel Colt's expenses and the tees of his law yers will of course be paid by the state. HEED’S ANNOUNCEMENT. He Will Go to Work Without Waiting to bo Chosen Speaker. Washington, Nov. 19. — Ex-Speaker Reed and future Speaker Thomas B. Reed of Maine writes that he will be in Washington on the 25th instant. The explanation of Mr. Reed’s intention of reaching Washington so late Is generally accepted as a desire to avoid as long as possible the personal Importunities of representatives who are anxious for com mittee chairmanships. The pressure for these places among the members who were re-elected to the next house began last winter, and It is presumed that it has greatly intensified with the near ap proach of the reassembling of congress. The republican caucus will meet In the hall of representatives at 8 o’clock on Saturday evening, the ROth Instant. The first business will be the selection of a candidate for speaker, following which the names of the candidates for clerk, doorkeeper, sergeant-at-arms and post master will be presented. Messrs. McDowell of Pennsylvania and Glenn of New York are making the fight for clerk and doorkeeper respective ly, and Representative Henderson of Il linois is also contesting for the clerkship. Both McDowell and Henderson have opened headquarters and begun a sys tematic campaign. William Tipton of Cleveland, Tenn., Is the candidate of the southern republi cans for doorkeeper. Capt. Thomas McKee of Indiana, who had charge of the house document room in the Fifty-first congress, announces himself as a candidate for sergeant-at arms. During the congressional cam paign of a year ago he was assistant sec retary of the national committee. YALE MEN SMILE. The Students Tickled at the Victory of Capt. Thorne’s Eleven Over Orange. New Haven, Nov. 19.—To say that Yale students are tickled over the result of Saturday’s football game with the Or ange Athletic club Is putting it mildly. The victory of Captain Thorne's team has put a broad smile on the entire uni versity. The students were on the point of de spair regarding the condition of the team, and the players themselves were greatly worried. Saturday’s victory was like a tonic to the players, while to the stu dents it has brought back confidence In the team. Yale’s splendid brace has been due sole ly to the splendid coaching the team has received during the past week by the little band of royal coachers who came to New Haven to help Captain Thorne out. The Improvement made by the team un der their care has been nothing short of wonderful. The cry now Is, "Defeat Princeton,” and every one Is satisfied that Yale is going to do it. Last Friday it would Indeed have been hard to find anyone who would have been willing to wager much on Yale’s chances. It Is ex pected that Heflleflnger, Yale’s former guard, will be here this week to assist In the coaching, and that also that Vance McCormick will return. Ex-Captain Hinkey, Dr. “Josh” Hartwell Howard Knapp, “Pa” Corbtn, "Kid” Wallace, “Billy” Rhodes, John Greenway and sev eral more will also be on hand. THU TKIKKO UUrU Jj. Broken Up Player* Returning to the Fold the Cause of Joy. Princeton, N. J., Nov. 19,—Prlncpton'e prospects are beginning to assume a more roseate hue as the cripples Improve and one by one return to the ranks. The latest arrivals from the hospital are Hearn, Armstrong, Suter and Cochrane, and it Is rumored that Lea and Baird will be In condition to play before the Yale game. Should such be the case the personnel of the team will be identical with that which lined up against Har vard, with the exception of Kelly at left half-back In place of Armstrong. The men will line up In the remaining few practice games against a second eleven composed largely of stars of former Princeton teams, and some lively games will be seen till Thursday, when the men will be given a rest until Satur day. “'Phil” King. ‘'House" Janeway, "Beef" Wheeler, “Johnny” Poe and Parke Davis have signified their Inten tion of reinforcing the scrub and will ar rive tomorrow. Captain Lea states that the men were surprised at Yale's sharp game yester day, but their confidence was not shaken a particle and a spirit of determination was evinced at the club house today, which has not been equaled In recent years. _ A Large Factory Burned. Winston, N. C., Nov. 19.—A farge fac tory for the manufacture of telegraph and telephone pins was destroyed by Are at Wllkesborro today. It was owned by R. A. Spalnhower, who places his loss at several thousand dollars. TRAIN WRECKERS CAUGHT One of Them Has Made a Full Confession. THEIR O'fc-CT WAS ROBBERY the Rails They Ren? ,e , the Spikes and Fish Plates From o f — TO / JOMPLISH THEIR PURPOSE gi isor was Dashed to Death, but the Fifty lassengcra Weis Mot Hurt. Biverat Mail Clerks 'Wore Baoly Injured Home, N. Y , Nov. 19.—The deliberate wrecking of fast mall train No. 6, east bound, on the New York Central, was ac complished about three miles west of this city at 4:o0 this morning. The wreckers had broken open the company's tool house near by and obtained a wrench and crowbar, with which all the spikes and fish plates from two opposite rails on thJ southerly track had been removed. The two released rails were left In their places on the track. As the train comprising four mail cars and three sleeping car3 came along at the rate of about forty miles an hour the locomotive left the track, bounded over the ties and fell side wise into the ditch 12 feet deep on the south side of the track. The first two mail cars shot over the engine, the first one landing fully 75 feet from the point where the engine left the track. The second and third mail cars came together In "V” shape, and the wreck of the engine laid in the open space between them. Under the second mail car, pinned down by a pair of trucks and stone dead, was found Engineer Hager. The fourth mall car was toppled part way over. The first two slepers were partly turned over and The last one remained on the tracks. Strange to say the two loose rails had not been thrown ft;om the roadbed, the last car rocking upon them. There were about fifty passengers in the two slepers, and not one of them was hurt. The passengers were taken east on another train shotly after the accident. The killed and the wounded In the smash-up are: Nathan Hagar, engineer, Airauj, killed. Robert Elliott or Bond, from Syracuse, a tramp; died after being removed from the wreck. , . . E. Reardon, mall clerk; head and body cut and bruised. J. E. Ravine. New York, mall clerk; upper arm bruised and sprained and face c«t. „ , , H. B. Robinson, Syracuse, jnall clerk; ankle sprained. F. N. Paddock, Syracuse, mall clerk; arm cut. , . C. W. Sackett, Herkimer, mail clerk; arm cut and bruised. M. J. McCarthy, Buffalo, porter mall car; head cut and bruised. Conductor Charles R. Reynolds, Al bany; Injured In the chest. John Macey, tramp, Syracuse; right foot smashed and amputated. He is at the Rome hospital. C. Wagner, Albany; fireman; head cut. The body of Engineer Hagar is In charge of Undertaker Orton of this city. The tools with which the spikes were pulled were found on the track after the wreck. . , . , One week ago last Saturday night a fish-plate was loosened near the point where this morning’s accident occurred. Several trains passed over the place In safety. The matter was discovered by the track walker the following morning and a watch was kept there each night until last night. Three young fellows, aged 18 and 19 years, have been arrested for wrecking the train. They are J. Watson Hildreth of New York, Fred Bristol and Herbert Plato of Rome. Hildreth has made a confession implicating the other two and Theodore Hibbard, who has not been apprehended. Their object was robbery. The arrests were made by Detective La tham of the New York Central and Po liceman Keating of Rome. They found Hildreth’s hat with his name in it in some bushes near the wreck. Upon con fronting him he weakened and told who his accomplices were and their object. Tweyity-two persons unhurt were ta ken out of the windows of the sleeper, the Inca. All of the mall and sleeping cars were lighted with gas. Theodore Hibbard, the last of the four train wreckers, was captured at 3 p. m., and is now in custody with the others.
