HEAD-ON COLLISION I THREE TRAINMEN KILLED ON | TRE MEAT NORTHERN. , Alto Three Serlouely Injured—Crew of Freight Train Dleobeyed Order* Near Everett, Wash.—Crash With Passenger Train Followed—Two Other Freight Trains Just Escaped. Everett, Wash., Oct. 22. —The fail ure of a freight train tQ obey orders resulted in a headon collision on the Great Northern at 8 o'clock Sunday morning a few mlleß east of Monroe, In which three were Killed, three seri ously injured and others bruised. The dead: Freight Engineer J. E. Hudson. Freight Fireman A. W. Riddell. Freight Fireman Patrick Sheridan. The injured: Passenger Engineer George Lawrence, Passenger Conduc tor Wetzell. The freight was an extra, east bound. It had orders to meet No. 277, the Skykomish local at Monroe. Arriving at Monroe the crew of the train believed they had time to make Sultan, the first station east of Monroe. Immediately after leaving Monroe the train breke down and was de layed some time. Just after they cad started up the collision took placc The track at this point is tortuous, winding around the Snohomish. Neither engineer could see the other train until they were within 100 feet of each other. The trains came to gether with terrific Impact. Both engines left the track. Their crews stuck to their posts till the last min ute. That there were not many fa talities among the passengers is due to the lightness of the train, consist ing only of three cars, and that the heivy freight was going up grade. Passengers hurried from the coaches and assisted In extracting tue dead and Injured. Fireman Riddell of the freight train was found sitting head less beside his engine. His engineer. Hudson, was not found until late in the afternoon, his body being buried under the ponderous freight engine. Both the engineer and lireman of the passenger were badly scalded.

Conductor Erlckson of the freight train was placed under arrest by Deputy Sheriff Brown at Snohomish at the instance of Coroner Munn. The coroner will hold an Inquest at Sno homish tomorrow afternoon. The escape of the freight trains from a disastrous wreck between Leavenworth and Cashmere was a narrow one, and that the engines did not come together is due to the fact that when first seen by the engineers the trains were on a level stretch of track between the two towns. The wheels did not cease revolving until the engines nearly touched each oth er. A mistake In the train orders or their misreading is assigned as the cause of the blunder. REFORMS MAY BE HELD UP. Martial Law, as Enforced, Would Deprive Russian People of Benefits. St. Petersburg.—Even the harshest opponents Of the administration are agreed as to the great importance of the imperial ukase issued recently, which annulled the most burdensome and irritating restrictions Imposed on the peasantry as a special class and embodied into law reforms which bad been urged by government commis sions and unofficial critics of the gov ernment for over two decades. Though the ukase was promulgated under the constitutional provision for temporary laws, It is in effect an organic reform affecting four of the most important features of the Russian system, name ly, the special pass regulations for tbe peasantry, the hated rule by local ad ministrative officials, known as rural superintendents, the administrative control of zemstvo elections, and lim itations on the right of peasants to change their avocation and residence. The peasant, wbo, under the old system, ordinarily was without a pass and could leave his village only by obtaining permission for a limited time, a renewal of this regulation be ing contingent upon the assent of the commune and the payment of all com munal obligations, is now given a reg ular pass, which permits him to change his residence freely In Russia. This ukase, however. Is subject to several Important limitations, one of which is the nullification of most of its provisions by the exceptional con ditions of reinforced and extraordi nary security and martial law prevail ing in the greater part of Russia, un der which discretionary punishment may still be Inflicted by simple admin istrative orders; the regular pass sys tem is subject to a mass of burden some restrictions. The purpose of the promulgation of the ukase now is ad mittedly for political effect on tbe elections. Noted Forger Caught. Chicago.—J. H.
