AN OPERATOR'S MISTAKE Caoses a Collision on the Pennsylvania . A Number of Faaensero Injnred. Wilkesbabre, Pa., July 7. Two passen ger trains on the Pennsylvania railroad collided yesterday morning between this city and Nanticokc. They were Pottsvillc trains going in opposite directions. Both engines were completely wrecked and the smoker and two coaches attached to each other wrere more or less mashed. There "were over two hundred passengers on the trains and the escape from fatal results is miraculous. The cause of the disaster was a blunder on the part of Ojwrator Bcidleman, of this city, who should have held the up train at Kanticoke. but omitted to do so.

Clkvklakd, July 7. The friends of 8. D. Henderson, who committed suicide at the Astor House, in Sew York, tn Thurs day night, are unable to account for the man's awful deed. He had always, to all appearances, been in excellent health and in .rood spirirs. Mr. Henderson was in his forty-eighth year, and is survived by his wife and three children. For two years ho had been the manager of the Gordon Lamp and Itrass Works, and he was in the habit of hiking annual business trips to New York. A year ago, he and Mrs. Hender son made a prolonged stay there. They started for the metroiwlis last Sunday, and intended to be absent three weeks. ifr.'Henderson seemed to look forward to the trip with the greatest interest, and anticiiateil an enjoyable vacation. A letter received from Mrs. Hendenon last Tuesday said that everything was pro gressing favorably, and they were having a pleasant visit. . Nothing more was heard front Ihcm until the receipt of a telegram announcing his death yesterday. Arela. live of Mr. Heuderion stated that he had not been, so far as known, melancholy or suffering from any cause, and that it was utterly impossible to imagine the motive that prompted him to take his life. He was sent to New York to consummate a deal luf considerable imporUMiee for the works, which would indicate thu his rela tions with the company w ere all right. He has been with the works two years, and according- to Mr. Patrick H. Kecvan, the su perintendent, he never liad any trouble with the concern. "If he had," said Mr. Keevan "the com pany would not have entrusted him with the mission to go to New York and make this deal." Mr. Henderson had the reputationof be ing one of the .shrewdest managers in the sawing machine business. He was at one time .manager of the White Sewing Ma c!iine"Couipnny and he helped to "organize tlie Leader Sew ing Mach'ne Company. At tliat time he was well-to-do, but he met with financial reverses and went to the wall, which caused him to accept a position with tlie W. J. Gordon lamp and brass com Dauv. An autopsy made by Deputy Coroner Hcrold this morning showed that the man's death was due to carbolic acid poisoning. Kvidences of this were plainly visible in the scorched condition of tlie deceased's mouth and the extreme inflammation of the interior walls of the stomach. Some little time doubtless elupsd after the man took the fatal draught before the antidote was administered, ltenniants of the latt.T were still diseemable, but the acid had done its fatal work before it was used. The result readied demonstrated that the man's death was his own doings entirely, and the suspicious which rested on his w ife are dis pelled. The woman has been under the -uneilUncoof the police through 'the night. Coroner Eidman having deemed this precaution necessary, in 'view of all the ci. tuuisiatices surrounding tlie case.

Ituinors of another large firm granting thl demands of their employes were current, but President Keating, of the Manufactur ers' Conference Committee, pronounced them unfounded. He also said that no meeting of the Manufacturers' Association had been called for next Monday or Tues Jav, as reiMrtcd. The works of Singer.

A epec'a' says: A terrible conflict occurred at Jcssup, I.acknuunn:i county, between parties of Polandrrs and Hungarians. The riot was the result of bitter race feclimrs existing for some time, owing to tonic'rxouble at Dolph's mines, where they were eniploied.

He Declares Them Forgeries of a Signa ture Not lined by lllui for Ten Year " McCnrt'hjr Kxputlne Ills Connection with Ityrno Forced Letters HUturb Oerinan Affairs Newspaper Ofllcu llalded In rrl. 1isnos, July 7. Mr. ParnelPs- denial of all knowledgeof the letters alleged to have been written by him and read in court by Attorney-General Webster on Wednesday was the "feature of the proceedings of tho House of Commons last oening. His man ner was perfectly cool and his sentences were remarkably terse and pointed. He did not even in the most imprcsshe pas sages of his address raise his v ice above the ordinary routersational tone and when explaining that tlie signature which ar lH'ared at the end of the alleged fac simile I-tter printed in the Times, was a forged copy of a signature that had not been ued bv dim, even once, since 1.S7U, his tone and air might have led the stranger in tho gal lery to believe that he was addressing him self to his nearest colleague, though his oico penetrated the ear of eery person within the confines of the House. So con vincing were the utterancesof the National Ieaderat this ixiint that the few Tory examinations of '()h" not only failed to elicit signs of acquiescence on the Govern ment benches, but in some cases caused ex pressions of disapproal where other indi cations might hac been exiiected. The repudiation by Mr. Justin McCarthy of any knuwledgo of the intentions of Byrno were also well reeciu-d, generally, and Ujn the whole the revival of the accusa tions against Mr. Parncll and his associates may bo said to have been pretty effectually disposed of. In the lobbies, after the ad journment of the sitting, the liberal mem bers were unanimous in declaring their belief that the Parnell-Egan letters were forceries. and the Tory members w ere un expectedly quiet an the subject Whether the letters be forgeries or not, it is quite main tliat tliev and tlie matters eunnecteu with them have been too thoroughly dis counted to be ol any further etlect, unless tlie government should iutencne to keep them alie. The St. James Gazette declares that the Government would fail of its duty should it not announce that the House discredited the presence of men charged with crime who refused todeiend themsches. "If Mr. Painell does not bring action against tho Times," says the Gazette, 'it will be be cause he fears to do so." The rumor circulated bv several Berlin pjiers, that Kiiipcror Fredilick never saw the letter purporting to1 have been written by him aud receicd by Hcrr Von l"utt kamcf, which caused that Minister to re sign, has created much excitement at the German Capital. One of the effects of the publication has liccn to elicit the state ment from persons who certainly ought to know whereof they siieak, that on the day following Hcrr Von Fu tt Lanier's -esigim-tion, the Emperor wrote a letter referring to tlie matter in terms clearly indicating his surprise at the Minister's withdrawal, and expressing regret that the country should be deprived of his services and the King of his counsel. The statement of the exist ence of this letter is believed to furnish a key to other forged letttrs durlngtbe reign of Knqicror Frederick, ami efforts will be made, it is said, to bring them to light and trace itfi authorship. An GtfcAfms rrlntliifr i?stabl!ihinent llalded. Paris July 7. The police yesterday raided the house of the director of an Orleanist printing establishment, and seized a large minilier of copies of a circu lar letters addressed by the Conipte de Paris to conseratiie Mayors throughout France. The letter sajS: "You hate to protect municiia! liberties and finances against un etmagant and tyrannical administration, the billing tool of a tiarty which compromises the republic and will cause its downfall. The nay is near when we must allunito to establish a government upon a durable basis. The republic has not given the communes the liberty it promised them. The upholders of the republic consider any means justifiable to secure a majority in the municipal coun cils. The commune is divided into two sections the oppressors and the oppressed, and subjected to a system of obligatory budgets no longer disioscs independently of its resources. Pare'its no longer contrel the education of their children. The ephemeral government may promise to re store your lost liberties, but do not expect that it w ill be able to keep its promise. The monarchy alone can restore them and also restore order in the communes as in the State. The Fan Fresbjterlnn Council. Lomion, July 7. At jestcrday's session of the Pan l'resbvterian Council, Itoctor Murkland, of Baltimore, presided. The Council unanimously agreed to hold its next session in Toronto. The Committee on Foreign Missions submitted a report on the question of co-oeration with other churches. Dr. Murkland in support oi the report said tliat all Christian churches should work together to bring in tho king dom of Christ henceforth in the world, into one church doing God's will. Its oppo nents had declared that spiritual power was cfiete, but the answer of the church was that its missions were carrying God's war from pole to pole. Dr. MacLarcn, of Toronto, advocated en couraging native churches to assume an in- deiendent nosition. Dr. Trainer, of New York, argued that if divisions in thechurch continued, mission aries could hardly lie exiiected to act in a different spirit while laboring among tho heathen.

THE DYNAMITE PLOT. Arreet of John A. ltauerrlnen, Chief of Aurora' Division of B. or J. Sensa tional Developments Promised. Chicago, July 7. Engineer John A. Bauereisen, Chief of Aurora Division of Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers who was arrested at Aurora yesterday, charged with complicity in the alleged dynamite plot to destroy the Burlington railroad property, was brought to this city and taken before Commissioner Hoync. Tho trial was set for July 13, and Bauereisen held in ji.OOO bonds which were promptly furnished. Engineer Bauereisen is a good natured, well-fed man, and took his arrest very cooly. He talked 'freely and was half inclined to laugh at the whole thing. He declares he dots not know why he should be arrested, and that he did not know of the arrest of the other men until the offi cers told him this morning. He knows llowles, who is a member ot" his division, but knows nothing of the other men. Itisgivcii out that within the next few days a large number of locomotive engi neers belonging to the Brotherhood will be arrested, and by the day of the trial there will lie quite an array before the commis sioner to answer the general charge plai ed against those already in tho clutches of the law. The three men arrested last night are still in jail having been so far unable to get bail. The arrest would have occurred last night but at that time there was little or no evidence that Chief Bauereisen knew anything about the transportation of dynamite. Certain it was that he did nbt know of the arrest of the three men who had the nitro glycerine cartridges in their possession. It was sur mised that the recovery of that letter which Broderick threw out of the car win dow after he was placed under arrest on the Burlington train yesterday was the cause of the arrest of the. Fourth man this morning. Neither the deputy marshal who made the arrest nor any of tlie "Q" ollicials would say what the letter contained, but they spoke in such a significant way that it is almost certain the letter contained the names of some prominent members of the Brotherhood, aud also sonic details in re gard to contemplated plans for operating and employing dynamite that will produce a sensation when they are made public at the trial next week.

Tlie passage of the Land Grant Forfeiture bill and discussion on the Tariff bill were the main features of the House proceedings yesterday. The House conferees on the Agricultural bill were instructed to insist on their dis agreement to the Senate amendment ap propriating $100,000 for experiments in sorghum. The conference report on the bill to ratify tha act creating the county of San Juan, New Mexico, vvas agreed to. A bill was passed antiroiiriatinz $30,000 for a public building at ojwlousas, Louis iana. Mr. Ityan endeavored to secure considera tion for the Enqioria, Kas., public build ing, but objection vvas made on the Demo cratic side. This objection was character ized oy jiessrs. Buchanan, ot evv jersey, and Ryan, of Kansas, as "one-sided busi ness," allowing consideration of bills called up by Democrats and refusing on bills pre sented by Republicans. The yea and nay vote on the passage of the land grant forfeiture bill was then taken and the bill passed yeas 177, navs 8. Mr. Belmont, of New York, reported" the case of Job" Curtin Kent. Calendar. The tariff bill was then taken up in com mittee of the whole. Several amendments offered but were lost Rapid progress was made in the reading of the bill; motions by the Republicans to strike out many para graphs being rejected w ithout division. llie paragraph, imposing a 33 per cent, advalorem duty on woodscrews was striken out thus restoring tiic present rate of duty. Mr. Reed taunted Mr. Mills about the tatter's recent speech in New York, and asked him to bravely avow to the House what his position was , Mr. Mills said he had said in New York what he had said Texas. He had the cour age of his convictions and he hoped his friends on the other side would have the same high courage and would stand by their whisky platform. He had heard that tho other side were making a flank move ment on the whisk' question. When they found the Democratic battalions on the march, they began to say that they did not want so much whisky but would take some sugar in it. Mr. Heed Slid he had hoped tho gentle man would repeat his siicech his siicech of four years ago, in which he hail said, "wealth, prosperity and power will bless uie lauu mui is oeuicuieu u iree men, iree labor and free trade." Instead of defining his position, the gentleman had told how brave he was while he really showed how brave he was not. It wasstrange what an etlect climate had on a gentleman's courage and forms of expression. On motion of Mr. Mills the present rate of duty on pen knives and razors was re stored. A clause was inserted fixing the rate on new type at 15 per cent, nitraUirem. It was agreed that the sugar, molasses and confectionery clauses should be consid ered together, and that no vote should be taken as yet, Mr. Cannon of Illinois then oflered an amendment striking out all of the suirar and molasses narasrratins and in serting clauses living the duties as follows: Sugar not above Hi, Dutch standard. syrups Ac., and ail molasse testing not above 5f degrees not othervv ise provided for are to exempt from duty, in the event that no ox- port duty is lev leu oy tne country ot ex portation. Sucars above No. 10 are to nay u duty of one per cent, molasses above 56 degrees 2 cents iwr gallon. It is also pro vided tliat to encourage domestic produc tion there shall lie paid bounty to United States product rs of sugar from beets sor- gum and other cane raised in the United Mates as iouows: vin sugar cents- per pound: crystullizable sugar contained therein, on molasses above fl(S degrees six cents per gallon, not above 5f! degrees four cents Mr. Cannon said frauds had grown up under the present law. and the Mills bill periictuated them. The hill was better than the present law hut it was far short of what it ought to be. He commented on the fact that the Mills bill as originally drawn let in at the lower duty sugar under No. 1G Dutcli standard and prohibited draw backs on exported refined sugar. But the committee had changed these provi sions. He believed there was fraud in tho matter of the imiiorLition of sugar from the time it got to the dock up to the time it was exported. He did not mean to de sert the Louisiana planter or the Kansas and Illinois planter, and therefore favored aing them a bounty. Protection on sugar now averaged '1 cents a pound, from which the country got six million dollars of protection, and it cost $00,000,000 to pay it. ilr. Kelley said that just as tho agricul tural interest of the country was beginning to be diversilitd hy the raising of the su gar beet and sorgum it vvas proposed to cliauge the whole policy of the Govern ment respecting sugar. He did not believe in it. Mr. Petcre, of Kansas, was opposed to the bounty xystem for fear that capitalists not knowincwhat moment the bounty might be withdrawn, might hesi ate to risk their money in the industry of Sugar produc tion. Pending further debate the committee rose aud the House at 5 p. m., took a re cess until 8 o'clock, the night session to be devoted to the consideration of private pen sion bills Ploughing the Waves.
