THE PERDU FOOTBALL TEAM I
A SERIOUS WRECK.
ON THE BIG FOUR
A Section of a Gravel Train Runs
Into the Special, Cutting it in Two
and Telescoping Cars with Loss of
Indianapolis, Ind.. Oct. 31. This
morning a train on the Big Four
was wrecked just at the edge of
town. The football team from Pur
due University was on the train and
several of the players were severely
injured, and probably fatally hurt.
Twelve bodies have been taken from
the wreck, and there are still other
bodies in the debris. The dead that
have been identified are:
E. J; Robertson, Indianapolis, Ind.
Walter R. Ouch, Pittsburg, Pa.
R. J. Howell, Corpus Christi, Tex.

W. H. Grube, substitute player
Wilier Furr, substitute from Cor
pus Christi. Texas.
N. R. Howard, Lafayette, Ind.
Patrick McClure, Chicago.
Samuel Truitt, Noblesvllle Ind.,
substitute quarter back.
C. L. Shaw, student La Fayette
Among the injured are:
Joe Knall. Evansville, Ind.
Joe Miller, both legs broken.
Dr. Billings seriously Injured.
W. H. Leslie, captain of foot-ball
team of last year, seriously hurt.
Capt. Osborn, of foot-ball team,
,. seriously hurt.
The wreck was caused by a train
of cars running down from the grav
.. .'el pit and striking the students' spe
cial. The first car of the special
train was eut squarely In two, and
- the second, car occupied by the Pur
due band, was telescoped. M'any stu-
' . dents in the rear cars were consid
erably shaken up.
The injured will number forty, and
twenty-four of these are seriously
hurt. The train wrecked was a spe
cial . carrying nearly a thousand pas
sengers. These were on their way
from Lafayette, where Purdue Uni-
- varsity is located, to this place to
' witness a foot-ball contest between
the Purdue and Indianapolis Univer
" f sities. There is yet confusion as to
-''what caused the accident. The en
rfieer of the switching train and
the engineer of the passenger train
each claiming that he was acting
under orders ".and had no knowledge
V' of the other train. A deep cut where
the accident occurred prevented the
engineers from seeing each other
- until too late." The crash was so
great that it threw two coal cars
through two of the passenger coaches
in '"which were many of the players
and t the substitutes, and the two
cars and the two coaches were
-" crushed into a - confused mass, and
underneath all this debris were fifty
' or more students. The work of res
cuing the Injured and bearing away
the dead was carried on by the stu
dents "until outside help arrived. Ma
" ny of the students 'were girls nd
they worked with a heroism that was
touching' -Indeed until surgical help
came. The condition of some of the
bodies taken out was frightful. One
body was - completely beheaded.
The wounds of the injured men
were dressed temporarily and they
were hurried away to, a hospital. The
The dead were removed as fast as
they could be taken from the wreck
Among the last bodies taken out
were those of W. H. Grube and Wal
ter Farr of Texas. Their mangled
bodies were found buried under over
turned tender and were crushed al
most beyond recognition. It re
quired the combined work of the
wrecking crew and many city fire
men and police to get the bodies out.
The tender was raised with derricks
and the bodies drawn out.
BRIDAL COUPLES GALORE.
Not Much Attention Being Paid to a
Washington, D. C. Oct. 31. The
young officers of the army apparent
ly are paying little heed to the de
claration of Adjutant General Cor-
bin that they should not marry but
wait until their pay becomes large
enough to support two persons. Ad
vices received at the war department
show that nearly one dozen bridal
couples are among the passengers
on the transport Sheridan, sailing to
day from San Francisco for Manila.
The bridegrooms are mostly officers
of the Twenty-second Infantry, which
regiment has been ordered to the
Philippines. Prominent among the
couples is Capt. John R. R. Hannay
and his bride, who was Miss Eliza-
beth Young, daughter of Lieut. Gen.
S. M. B. Young.
JOHN MITCHELL ILL.
Threatened with Appendicitis, and
Operation May Be Necessary.
Scranton, Pa.. Oct. 31. John Mit
chell, of the United Mine Workers,
is ill at a hotel in this city and has
broken sevral local engagements. It
is feared that he will be compelled
to postpone his visit to New York
account of his weakness. It is said
that the indications are that he has
appendicitis, and the physicians as
yet are not able to agree on the ne
cessity for an operation.
WOMAN EMBEZZLES $47,000.
Her Craze Was Cab Riding, Now She
Will Rid to the Pen.
New York, Oct. 31. Marie Lay ton
who was arrested a few weeks ago
by the officers at the instance of the
United States Paying Company, to
day pleaded guilty to the chargs of
embezzlement. She is reported to
have made a complete confession,
showing that she had diverted from
the company's bank account $47,000.
For six years she was the confiden
tial clerk in the New York offices,
and she is now awaiting sentence
for her 1 crime. , The woman has re
turned $5,000 to her employers, being
all the money she had saved from
In her confession she mentions
the name of a prominent officer of
a New York corporation, who she
says profited by her stealings. It
is alleged that he got her to cash
worthless checks. Much of the
money went in high living and to sat
isfy her craze for cab riding.

ful breeding and training, are tak
ing part in the Waterloo an Ameri
can Derby coursing meet which
was formally opened here today.

ing are R. J. Riley of San Francisco,

ent vof the kind ever pulled off in
this part of the country.
THE FATHER AND SON DO NOT
THE RECORDS SHOW
The Elder Dowie Much Cast Down
by the Outrageous Treatment Ac
corded Him by "Elijah the Pro
phet." Chicago, III.. Oct. 31. A dispatch
from Essex, Iowa, says that John
Murray Dowie is crushed by the at
tack lately made on him by his son,
the famous John Alexander Dowie
who is now trying to convert New
The father says, "The statement
that I am not the father of John Al
exander Dowie is the greatest myth
ever uttered by the mouth of man.
It is scandalous that my son should
repudiate me after I have done so
much for him. He is my son and
was born in lawful wedlock. No
one can deny the records, and they
may be had at the register's office
in Princess St. Edinburgh, Scotland.
Judge Dowie is respected by the
entire community, and the recent
trouble has aged him greatly.
Glance Ahead from the National
Capital as to the Battle of Ballots.
Washington, D. C. Oct. 31. The
elections of next Tuesday, taking
place just twelve months before the
presidential canvass, are naturally
awaited with great interest by the
general public, and especially by the
party leaders. For the first time in
a dozen years the money question
has been almost entirely eliminated
from the political discussions. The
Democrats of many states ignored
the subject, and the Republicans
have not shown a disposition to re
vive a controversy that .attracted so
much attention through three cam
paigns. About the only approacn to
national issues has been in the effort
of the Democrats to force to the
front the question of tariff revision
and regulation of the trusts. It
seems doubtful, however, n these
questions have received sufficient at
tention to become real factors in the
The policy of the Republicans in
all the states where elections are to
be held, in presenting the situation
from a general view point, has been
to ask for indorsement of the party's
record for the last seven . years.
"Prosperity" has been the rallying
cry of the party, in power.
Some of the state situations are
attracting national attention. The
principal - ones are Maryland, Ken
tucky, Iowa, ad Ohio. Massachusetts
which elets a. governor every year,
and which seldom chooses a Demo
crat, will in all ' probability be car
ried by the Republicans by a large
majority next week. The Republi
cans also expect to carry Rhode Is
land, for the Socialist issue which
made it Democratic in 1902 is not
so potent now as a year ago. Miss
issippi' will elect Yardman by a ma-
jority which ' can be made large or
small, at the will of the Democrats;
for the Republicans have no organ
ization worthy of the name in that
The campaign in Ohio is probably
attracting most attention. A full
state ticket is to be elected, and the
seat in the United States senate now
held by Mr. Hanna is at stake. Pos
sib'y the fact that the chairman of
the Republican national committee
is the candidate for the senate tends
to add interest to the contest. It is
also true that the political future
of Tom L. Johnson, the Democratic
nominee for governor, is involved In
the result. If he should be elected
he would immediately be placed
among the list of presidential possi
bilities. A crushing defeat would."
it is believed, end his political ca
reer. As tor Myron T. Hernck, the
Republican nominee, his election
would make him a conspicuous figure
in national politics.
Naturally a great deal of interest
is given to the contest in Maryland,
on account of Senator Gorman's pre
sidential aspirations. A victory for
lor the Democrats in that state
and the chances seem to be that
they will be victorious will have a
tendency to strengthen the hands of
those who want to have the race
question put in the national platform.
A Democratic victory will also be
received by the country as. a person
al tribute to Senator Gorman, and
will aid him in the national conven
tion of 1904. It is known that he
is using all his power to get a ma
jority for the Democratic candidate
for governor, Edwin Warfield. The
Republicans, on the other hand, are
making a very active canvass with
a strong ticket, and are hopeful of
victory. The legislature to be elec
ted will choose a successor to Unit
ed States Senator McComas.
Iowa has been a sort of tariff re
vision storm center, but the general
result will probably not be influenc
ed one way or the other by the tar
iff discussion that has taken place
out there. There was some expec
tation early in the year that the is
sue would reduce the Republican
majority, on account of the diverg
ence the so-called "Iowa Idea"
between the party in that state and
in the rest of the country, but Iowa
Republicans swung to the side of
their brethren in the rest of the
country, and from what can be
learned at headquarters here there
appears to be no danger of Republi
can defeat there next week.
The canvass in Kentucky is ex
citing, the issues, however, being
chiefly local, but as many Democrats,
including ex-Governor Simon B.
Buckner, are supporting the Repub
licans, the campaign is attracting
the country's attention. The proba
bility, nevertheless, is that the Dem
ocrats will hold the state. Governor
Beckham heads the state . ticket as
a candidate for re-election. His op
ponent on the Republican ticket is
Morris B. Belknap of Louisville.
, From a national viewpoint it can
be said that of the several states
that are to vote next Tuesday the
results in Maryland, Ohio, Iowa and
Kentucky will be the only ones that
will afford any indication of the
true direction and force of the par
tisan currents on the eve of the
In Delaware Addickism is again
the issue, but it has been the issue
there for so many years that the
country at large has. apparently,
lost interest In the fight.

A High Electric Wave Has Passed
Through the Earth and the Tele

Have Been Suffering. At Places
Communication Entirely Cut Off,
Chicago, III., Oct. 31. Last night
and today great inconvenience has
been caused the telegraph and tele
phone companies throughout this see
tion of country. The disturbance is
said to be due to the Aurora Borea
lis or Northern Lights. Telegraph
wires in all directions have felt the
result, and in some localities there
has been a total cessation of busi
ness. Long distance telephone wires
have been so affected that all com
munication has been suspended at
times. One report says that a high
electric wave with high force has
passed through the earth, paralyz
ing the strength of the wires.

graph companies of France have
sent out word that all business en
trusted to them must be subject to
