It Causes a Disastrous Tail
End Collision Near Aledo
And au Alleged failure tu Observe tlie
Time Card Iules Ilegarclinjr tValer sta
tions Itesults iu a Wreck The
Particulars of the Affair
A tail end collision occurred at the water
tank west of Aledo yesterday morning and
ten cars a caboose and engine were burned
while Engineer Kuhlhoff and Conductor
Johnson are lying at the point of death
Between 10 and 11 oclock Tuesday night
freight train No 17 on the Texas
tnd Pacific bound west pulled out
from Fort Worth iu two sections
All went well until Aledo was
passed when the first section stopped at
the tank a mile and a half west of
that point to take water While stand
ing at the tank engine si pulling the second
section darted around tlie curve aud came
Hying down the lone erade at a high rate of
speed Engineer Kuhlhoff was at the
throttle and as soon as he saw the
first section called for brakes reversed
his engine and made a liying ieap Iu tho
meantime his fireman had gone on on the
left side Tlie momentum of the train
was too great however aud the
engine dashed into the first section knock
ing way car Of aside as though it were a
feather and plowing through ten cars of
merchandise The trainmen of the second
section seeing their engine was bound to
strike the train ahead incontinently tum
bled overboard without waiting to choose a
convenient spot in which to alight Con
ductor Jo L Johnson of the first
section saw the second section
coming and attempted to get out of the way
ear but was unable to get tlie door open in
time and was caught ihthe wreck his right
leg being cut off about four inches below
the knee He was caught by the shattered
timbers and deluged by the steam fiom the
wrecked engine scalding him seriously
and it is feared fatally Engi
neer Kuhlhoff it is said jumped dear
of the engine but was evidently struck
in the head by the cars of his train or fell
upon a stone as his skull is fractured arul
it is feared that the brain has been
wounded by the shattered bone None of
the remaining members of either train crew
were injured
The accident occurred at 140 a m The
ivas very dark and just east of the
the track curves sharply and
there is a very heavy down grade
Under the time card rules Engineer
Kuhlhoff should have had his train under

The continued drawing of gold is
now exciting the public to lively
comment Henry Clews today in a publie
statement said It appears that the Bank
of Eusrlaud managers have entered into a
conspiracy with English banking institu
tions agreeing to keep up fictitious rates
for money iu that capital purposely to in
terfere with the laws which should cover
trade and commerce and not only pre
vent the return of the gold al
ready shipped but acquire more
of our gold and retain that too To coun
teract this conspiracy I suggest that the
clearing iiouse banks aud trust companies
here meet the challenge and so long as the
Bank of England late is kept up artificially
at i uer cent make the rate
of interest arbitrarily on this side
say 1 per cent tho funds to bo kept until
such time as the rate cannot be obtained
He also suggests that the treasury refuse
to give gold for export in higher denomi
nation than > pieees in order to put all
the obstacles possible iu the way of ship

laid before the secretary of the treasury

complete control and been on the lookout
for the Srst section as he must have
known they would stop there for water
The conductor of first No 17 was not
expected to protect his train by a flag
especially as the conditions governing the
approach to the tank were exactly the
same as governs in enterin a station
As to why Engineer Kuhlhoff
came down the hill so fast is iiwxplicable to
trainmen unless it was that his engine be
came unmanageable and got beyond his
control so he could not hold ais train or
check the momentum of thd vast ton
nage behind him The night was
not rainy and the track was not slippery
The most charitable construction and the
one railroad men are inclined to put upon it
is that the engine for the momeit got beyond
control and that he is not morally responsi
ble for the collision It is impossible to as
certain tlie rate of speed at which second
17 was ruuning though it is apparent from
all that can be learned that Kuhlhoff was
whirling them for ail that was in them
more especially as both sections are said to
have been behind time
It is said that the company recently dis
pensed with the services of a
night operator at Alerio and
that if one had been stationed
there Engineer Kuhlhoff could and doubt
less would have ascertained just how far
first 17 was ahead of him and would then
have known to a certaintv that she would
be found at the tank
The wreck caught fire from the firebox of
engine SI and ten cars of merchandise the
wayear and the engine which Was beneath
them were totally consumed The cars
were loaded with bacon flour sheep
and general merchandise The ba
con only added fuel to the
flames aud rendered it impossihlo
to have rendered assistance to any of tho
train crew had they been unfortunato enough
to have been caught iu the wreck It was
rumored that one of tho brako
men of first seventeen was impris
oned in the way car and that he
was burned with the wreck but this is
denied by the trainmen who say that all
persons on the train are accounted for and
if any human being was caught in tlie
wreck it must have been a tramp engaged
in beating his way though they do not
believe this was tho case
Passengers from the west who passed the
scene of the wreck yesterday state that all
that could be seen of the wreck was a mass
of warped and twisted iron bearing every
appearance of having been through a hot
fire aud that some of tho wheels were
melted sufficiently to become firmly welded
to the rails The engine is a total wreck
and is fit only for the scrap heap
A telegram was at once sent to Fort
Worth for an engine and coach aud the in
jured men were brought back to the city at

His swindling operations extend over t
period of twelve months and ho may
be wanted iu many places not yet heard
from His method of operation was a
shrewd one and according to els own state
ments after his arrest the banks in most of
the towns which he visited were glad to
cash his botrus drafts
About the middle of May Inspector
Byrnes received a letter from the chief of
police of Tampa Fla asking him
to arrest E Allain wanted there
for obtaining S00 from tho First
national bank of Tampa on forged
drafts On May 20 the inspector received
a letter from C F Knollie inspector gen
eral of she constabulary of Jamaica asking
him to arrest E A Cameron for obtaining
200 from the Colonial bank of Jamaica on
forged drafts Both letters gave accurate
descriptions of the man wanted and both
The case was given to Detectives Mo
Naught Sheldon and Lyman with instruc

nioiniug they found their man standing iu
front of tlie Morton house He had arrived
in this city only a few hours before his
arrest When searched his pockets
were found to be filled with
blank checks forged letters of
credit business cards circulars and a
batch of forfeit drafts from tho Texas
state fair association of Dallas Tex These
were forfeits against horsemen v < hu > e
horses had failed to start They seemed to
bemade out aud approved in correct manner
When arrested he guvo the name of Ernest
Allaiu Chirriton stated that ho was
and thirty years old He had printed cards
with the name of E Allain on them and
they set forth that he was the authorized
correspondent of a scoie of leading papers
throughout the United States He also
had a number of cards of the Southwest
ern Press syndicate of Louisville
Ky which authorized him un
der the name of E A Cameron
to act as agent and correspondent to the
syndicate in certion territory in the West
He also had au alleged letter of credit from
the cashier of the AngloMexican bank of
Juraz Mexico The letter set forth that
his father in England had made
him a j early allowance of o000
and authorized him to draw on
Mellville Evans Co 7 i Lombard street
London for that amount The letter was
written on a printed letter head There is
no such bank There is no Southwestern
press syndicate at Louisville and most of
tlie printed drafts and checks found on the
prisoner were from banks that do not exist
The prisoner made a confession and
Eighteen inontlis ago he left this city
went to Philadelphia and there had all his
bogus checks drafts and cards printed
Then he went to Denver and from there to
St Paul and then to Fort Worth and Dal
las Tex He commenced his swindling
ojierations in the latter city From there
he went to Los Angeles Fresno San Dieuo
and San Francisco Then he went to
Tampa Fla aud from there to
Jamaica In the latter place he
met some old schoolmates from
England was elected an honorary member
of the Jamaica club and had no trouble in
getting bogus drafts for 200 cashed His
method was to represent himself as a news
paper man writing an article for a syndi
cate 011 methods of banking in all countries
He would present one of his bogus bank
drafts to the cashier and ask him
to fill it out for some small amount
and sign his name to it telling him a fac
simile of it would appear in his article In
this way he obtained signatures and names
which he would forge in the next town
Another plan was to present his bogus let
ter of credit for i000 deposit for collection
a draft for the amount and get an allowance
of a few hundred dollars ou it He said
that the only bank that ever refused to
cash his drafts was the Bank of Havana

when Albert Edvjd Prince oi Wales
still accompanied by his faihftd iatu

the court bowing and smiliiur to the au

Sir Charles Pussell leading counsel for

commenced his addnss on ehalf of his
clients Sir Charts Ivsmii speakim iu a
low distinct vie the tones of which hu
gradually raised until the distinguished
lawyer was eeard learly throughout the
court He said that his clients had been
much against their wishes compelled to
trkt > the course which they had adopted
There weie nine jiersons concerned in this
continued Sir Charles in a low vrie full
of feeling all f whom knew the plaintiff
Sir William Gordon Cumr ng for many
years Plaintiff admitted he said raising
his voice slfhtl tha his accusers
were acting conscientiously iu this matter
and the jury would find it impossible to
believe that those perfiL s were
mistaken in regard to the character
of plaintiffs conduct on the night of
the Mb and Hth of September ISiK
The plaintiff had admitted that tltey wcro
all persons of honor and honesty and hav
ing made the charges they adhered to
them The pi intifl had n aslad to be
confronted with either oT his accusers Tho
objeetoii to secrecy came from Mr Lycett
Green who askeil that the matter bo
thrashed out then a d there in oider to
pi vent the possibility olJplL itiff s after
wards repudiating the charges The plain
tiff continued Sir Charles Hussell after
au effective pause and again raising
his voice slightly had signed a de
grading and humiliating dcVuiuent and
lip did not take steps to bring
his slanderers t > justice until
he found himsalf in another jiosition Then
he ti Tied upon thosie who had been quite
prepared to keep their agreement thougi
in their eyes he was a dishonored mat
With this remark Sir Charles seemed to
take up another line of argument lor
he said gazing earnestly at the jury
And now how alrut the three princi
pal actors and the plaintiffs action in
regard to them Do you gentlemen o
the jury doubt that the plaintilt
knew that caeli of the gentlemen believed
him guilty He knew that iu their eies ha
was no longer iu the cutrgory of honora
ble men Was it 1 oneeivable that an inno
cent man under such circumstances should
bear such au odious burden upon him De
fendants would tell the jury that
their mouths remained closed in thii
matter until January 7 I5UI
For months after the eventful Baccaret
games at Tanny Croft when Sir illiaiq
Gordon Cummiug made hu attempt through
Mr Bcrkcly Lovett one or the witnesses
to secure a modification or withdrawal 01
the charges the defendants said to that
they were prepared to substantiate the
charges which they had made against
Sir William Gordon Cummiug Sir
Charl then laid speeial stress
upon the jieculiar circumstances under
whica the action was brought about and re
ferred at length to tlie interview which Sit
William Gordon Gumming had with Lieut
Lovett wlw was a subaltern in plaintiffs
regimentand who being asked bi Sir Will
iam to dowhat he could with Mrs Arthur
Wilson in regard to the baccarat
scandal replied that he could not disbelieve
his own hiskt though he added
that he would gladly do anything for
tho sake of Sir William Gordon
Camming and for the sake of the regiment
to which they belonged The plaintiffs
conduct Sir Charles Russell continued
at no stage of this distrosiug story hai
beenthe conduct of an innocentand honora
ble man No
man would have lain quic under the
charges made against him or signed the
confession which plaintiff signed Counsel
for tho defendants then said that tho
present action was brought only when
plaintiff failed in his efforts to secure his
retirement on lialf pay from the army Cou
ttuuiug Sir Charles dilated ujion the inno
cent character of the baccarat games played
there in September last saying One of
the satisfactory results of this case has
been the dissipation of the absurd aud pre
posterous notions whxn have been formed
in regard to the occurrences at Tanby
At the request of Sir Charles Russell
models of the tables used each night at
Tanby Croft in September for playing
baccarat iu default of regular baccarat
tables with the
csncciallv marked tiion them were pro
duced Sir Charles Russell also caused
tne jury to be shown photographs
of the rooms at Tranby Croft
