There were seventy passengers on the train anid the two cars that turned over into the ditch w're crowded with well-known people of this section. When they left the track some one cried that everybody should cling to their seats, but the shock was so awful many were hurled fromn one side to the other. those not badly injured being ter ribly shaken up. Assistance was soon at hand from other passengers and train men. and when all were finally taken out of the wrecked car it was found that I fourteen pceople had been injured, four of I them s.riously and one fatally. t The train was running at the least I calculation at the rate of thirty-tiventiles ccn hour, and as it reached a curve- the s c.ars were ncticed to sway violently. adli unheeding the cry for passengers to keepp their seater thel rush was cIaile for the doors.

( t.l( l of Nl.w Y,.t:. July 31. I. (G. Dun .l Co.'s nweekly review of trade will say: Business continues dragging and dull. In commercial circles there seems a very general and growing confidence that the business of the fall will be large and profitable and some improvement is seen but not enough as yet to justify sanguine views. Trade at the south is peculiarly depressed because there is too much cotton. Again in parts of the west where crops failed last year trade has not yet recovered from the great de pression resulting and as long as the corn crop is in doubt complete recovery is not to be expected. In several states legislation hostile to capital caused much disturbance. A further collapse of real estate speculation in many parts of the west and south has brought severe losses and embarrassment to many. At the east monetary uncertainties have a powerful influence. European difficulties do not pass as quickly Or fully as was expected and now serious financial trouble is appre hended in Russia because of the failure of crops, which will only help this count ry in the end. There is a growing doubt whether the movement of crops here will not cause temporary drain greater than the eastern money markets can meet, but it the grain can be sogo gold will come. One large financial institution has bought English consols to a unsiderable amount, and a leading trust company is said to have $4,00,OJO of its deposits in gold. The great industries show no im portant change for the week though it must be said that the disheartenment in woolen goods trade seems to increase and it is admitted that sales are not equal to last year's, though trade was dragging then. Much of the trouble lV is attributed to exceepve credits in the clothing system. In boots and shoes there is continued improvement, and Boston shipments since July 2 have largely exceeded those of the same weeks last year. The coal trade is still depressed by ex cessive production, the output exceeding last year's to date by 2,700,00o tons. Copper is still represented by the a ethy of home consumers and there isl very little trade in lead, while specula tion has lifted and again depressed the price of tin. Philadelphia describes the iron market as frightfully dull and sales to realize are made at prices consider ably below quotations. Structural mills I are well suplpiled for the present and bar iron is steady, though the poverty of rail roads makes the demand scanty, but plut's are irregular. buyers refraining frmn taking rails, and lower grades of pig-iron are offered below quotations.

July 31.- The preliminary ex it amination of Messrs. l)eeney, Kelly. anli Hickey. under arrest charged with the 'I murder of W. J. Penrose. has not yet f been set. although it has been asked by 0 Thompson Campbell. their attorney. n They will be arraigned, it is supposed. i - today or tomnorrow. In speaking of the j e matter yesterday Mr. Campbell said that I S it was just possible the evidence against e the ien would show that they could be Sadmnitted to bail. The jury had been 1 a dismissed for the term and unless the e men could be hailed olut they would have a to remain in jail until the October term. e Mr. Campbell was doubtful if sufficient testimony would be developed by the ' state at the preliminary examination to 1 hold the men for the grand jury. A relport was current yesterday that Colonel Sanders and Warren Toole had been engaged for the defense. The former has been approached on the sub ject and hadl some conversation with Mr. t ampbell about it yesterday, but it is understood that the only counsel so far a retained is Mr. Campbell. The report that Mr. Scallon has been retained by Hickey is prenmature. When the latter I was brought to the jail Mr. Scallon was g sent for by hilm. but he has not been re- a taimed so far.

Aug. 1. --One of the most thrilling tragedies that ever occurred in Westchester county took place here this evening, which will re sult in the death of Newton Baker, priv ate secretary of Col. Robert G. Ingersoll, who was shot four times by Orville M. Anderson, late New York agent of the Louisville Gas company. Anderson and his family reside in Moody homestead, and he sublet part of the house to Baker and wife. The two families have never agreed and neighborly quarrels were fre quent between the women of the house, which sometime ago became so serious that Anderson and Baker took up the quarrel and often had heated disputes over the matter. The quarrels biieame more and more serious every day between the two men, until it went so far that both husbands threatened to take each other's lives. Threats culminated to night in one of the most thrilling duels and tragedies over known. Baker and Anderson were walking toward their homes today attempting to adjust their difficulties. They had not proceeded far when they perceived Mrs. Baker coming toward them to meet her hus band and walk home with him. so the two men would not quarrel and corme to blows, but when she was within a few feet of her husband she said: "While you were absent this morning that man (pointi.rg to Anderson) stared at me in an ungentlemanly manner and in his actions and conduct insulted men. 11e did not address me, but laughed in a daring and sarcastic manner." Baker then turned to Anderson and said: "That was an insult to my wife and I, as her husband, cannot allow this." Both men drew their revolvers and Mn. Baker sprang between them and threw her arms about her hnsband's neck and tried to shield him from Anderson's bullets. Mrs. Baker becoming exhausted swooned away. Both men fought for their lives. They clung to each other for a few moments when Anderson suddenly broke away quickly stepped back a few paces an raing his revolver fired at Baker. His aim wss true for as Baker was about to raise his arm to shoot Anderson fired the ball striking Baker's right arm and breaking it. Baker's weapon fell from his hand. Anderson then fired three more shots in quick succeemion, the second shot striking Baker on the forehead and making a glancing wound, while the third bullet entered his left side just be low the heart, and the fourth bullet pierced the right aide. Baker dropped to the ground, mortally wounded, and begged Anderson to not shoot again. When Anderson saw his enemy lying on the ground he coolly placed his re volver back in his pocket and walked home, leaving Baker and his half-crased wife on the roadside. Mrs. Baker soon called for help and her wounded hus band was taken to the same house where his would-be murderer had already pre cetnswl him. Ihoctom were hastily sumr moned and after examining Baker's wounds pronounced them fatasl Ander son was arrested. GREAT MEETING OF FLYERS, it Tenny and Longstreet, the Rival Kings of the Turf, Take a t Spin Together. n THE SON OF LONGFELLOW THE WINNER. h The Race Witnessed by 25,000 Peo ple-The Betting Slightly in Favor of Longstreet. He Wins an Easy Victory by Eight Length----What the Owners Have to Say. 'I 'NNhY AND LONGSTREI, T. The .No of Loungfellow Defetms the Sway hack Wonder. I NEw YORK, Aug. 1.- The much talked of and long delayed match race between Pulsifer's swayback horse, Tenny, and D. F. Dwyer's Longstreet was run at Morris park today and resulted in an easy victory for Longstreet by eight lengths. Fully 25,000 people were pres ent, many of whom had journeyed from all parts of the Union to see the race and to satisfy themselves as to the superior animal of the two. While a race, it was hardly the contest many had hoped to see. Nevertheless it was a good contest and proved conclusively that the great swayback is no match for the D)wyer candidate. In this fact this opinion is shared by Pulsifer himself, who, when seen after the race, gave it as his opinion. In betting Tenny opened at 1i to 10. while Longstreet could be backed at even money. Public money then began to go on Tenny, forcing his price down to 3 to five, while Longstreet kept up steadily until just lbefore they went to the post, when ( to 3 could be had against him. Suddenly a low-sized, dark complexioned youth was seen stealing º behind the IKookmaker's box to the right of the ring. He was instantly recognized by a select few as "Circular Joe. Mr. l)wyer's conmlissioner. liHe lost no time in putting money, it going in at hun dreds at a clip, until he had placed near ly i0.00O0 on Longstreet. Despite this heavy support given to Long street his price seemed to have remained steady all the while, Tenny's friends sticking to him wonderfully. Little or no interest was manifested in the three lrevious events. Just after Raceland won his race a gang of work- C men brought out thie hurrows and for nearly thirty minutes they were kept at f work. Finally the bell rang and tilt crowd took their seats in thegrand standl ready for the fray to begin. Tenny. with "Pike" Barnes in the sald die, was the first of the pair to show. He ' was saddled in his stable on the back- s stretch, while Blarnes walkted across the a field to the starting-post. 'Tenny lotlked in prime condition and elicited much I applause when given his preliminatry c gallop. He worked well enough to cause many of those who had backed him to again visit the ring and almost double their bets. Longstreet soon followed but he showed a disposition to shrink his work which caused his admirers considerable uneasiness. Stones, clods of dirt, shouts, waving of arms were all used in an en deavor to make him break but once in motion his long sweeping stride carried him along in a way that meant volumes to those whose hopes and dollars he was carrying. He pulled up at the paddxock gate and once within its shelter was sur rounded by a throng of eager sight seers who eyed him almost in wonder until the bugle signalled him to the post. Tenny soon joined him here and as he did the crowd alnost to a man rose from their seats, each seeming to know and feel a right royal contest was before them. Fourth race--match, 85,000 a side with 82..i(1 added, mile and a quarter. Start ers Longstreet. 124, Hamilton, () to 5. Tenny, 124, Barnes, 7 to 10. The first break looked to be a good start but Lnagstreet for some reason re fused to go on and the flag failed to fall. In the next attempt Longstreet tried the same trick but a good rousing from Hamilton got iim in nmotion and the word was given with the s.on of Long fellow half a length in front. lie soon made it a length and at the end of a quarter it was two, in fact every stride seemed to bring him furtlher away. See ing this Barnes began to urge Tinny and just as he breasted the hill he seemed to gain on the liader andt as he did his backers grew wild with delight. Short lived was their glee, however, for Long street soon began to draw away again and at the end of a mile it was seen hlie would win. Whip and spur as Barnes might Tenny could not gain an inch for the rest of the journey, and a doentn jumps from the end he began to pull up. Hamilton saw this and let up on Longstreet a trifle. still not enough to take any chances, and at the end was winner by eight lengths in 2:071. The fractions were ':li, 50, 1;17%, 1:42 and M2:lke" Dwyer saw the race from the timer's stand andl he was highly pleased with the sueee" of his representative. lie was heartily t.ongratulated and said the result was what he had expected. He had told his friends Longatreet would win and in dodng sm he felt he was telling them to hack the hbet horse he ever owned. lIe also said he was willing to give Col. Pulslfer another chance to beat him itf he wanted. lie said he would probably clhange the winner's name to Rook liedge,'which is the title of his hotel prolerty in I"iorlila. 'l'enny's owner was seen after the race and said he was matletHed the race had been a true one, with well dielhlned victory for omngstreet.
