Delegates are arriving in large num.
bers in advance of tbe sixteenth annual
meeting of the Farmers' National Con.
gress, which opens to-morrow at tbe
state house for a four days' session.
Speaking of the purpose of the con
gress, Hon. John M. Stahl, one of its
founders, said this morning:
"It is a successful effort to bring
into annual assemblage representatives
of all farmers' organizations and also
of that great body of farmers who are
unaffiliated. The congress is not an
tagonistic to any other agricultural
body and is strictly non partisan. It
has neither duos nor salaries. Dele
gates pay their own expenses and the
officers get no pay for their work.
1 be present congrers comes at an
eppottuua uiuujuafc. xne times are in
deed bard, but in what way can the
farmers do more to make times better,
in what way can they do more to raise
tbe price of fourteen-oeut corn and
eight-cent oats, than by meeting
the national congress to deoide what
measures and movements arc best for
their interests, and to present them
to legislative bodies and tbe people
oacked by tbe tremendous force of all
the farmers of tbe country t"
event of the season.

tors. The parade was on a scale of

accident, this morning, wbile lying in
aocR in tne Urookiyn navy yard await
ing repairs. A "sea-cook" blew out in
a mysterious manner, causing a rush
of water Into the ship's hold. Tbe
"Texas" settled considerably in tbe
water and listed to starboard. Tbe
water is being pumped out of the ship
ana a i vers are at work investigating
tbe damage done. Tbe ship Is in au
easy position and no apprehension is
felt for ber safety.
New York, N. Y., November 9.
ine "lexas" is now resting easily on
the mud bottom at Cob dock. There
was only two feet of water under her
when the aocident happened. It now
appears that tbe water did not reach
the bold, but filled tbe engine compart
ments. Steam-pumps are now pump
ing tbe water out. Uaptatn Glass Is in
personal control of the work and says
tbe rules of the department forbid bim
talking about tbe matter. Command
ant Sicard, of tbe navy yard, says tbe
exact cause of the aocident is not
known, and will not be until the div
ers have finished. He expects tbe sbip
to be all right within twenty-four
hours,
The divers came up after a thorough
inspection of the battleship at noon.
Tbey report tbe accident due to tbe
breaking of tbe yoke wbloh holds In
place the bonnet of tbe main injection
valve, situated in the engine room, j
Eogineer Higgins was in tbe engine
room wbon tbe accident occurred an
had a narrow escape. He sounded th
alarm immediately and in less than
three minutes every compartment In
the ship closed, tbus preventing water
from flooding the entire man-of-war
Tbe ship bad a narrow escape, bad she
been in deep water she would have cer
tainly gone clear to the bottom and
Dossibly every soul on board would
have been lost. All the water has been
pumped out of her, out and tbe work
of putting in the new yoke on the
broken valve will be an easy matter
Washington, D. C, November 9.

OsKALOOSA, Kansas. November 9
The proceedings against tbe Santa Fa
railway company, wherein it was
sought to throw its property, located
in Kansas, in the bands of a receiver
took an unexpected and interesting
turn to-day. The case was taken out
of the Jefferson county court and
transferred to tbe United States oourt,
to be beard by Judge Foster, on the
ground tbat as all provisions, ordered
by tbe united Mates oourt in the form

County Attorney Phynney, of Jefferson
county, who brought tbe suit, by Gov

structing the attorney to take charge
of the case. Tbe governor's action
