The Chicago limited express from San Fran cisco was thrown through a bridge near that point. All the cars of the train, which was loaded with transcontinental passengers, eastward bound, were buried in the waters of a flooded ravine.

Within a few miles of the place is a deep ravine, usually dry. It in «panned by a fifty foot arch, which, it is supposed, the heavy rains of the last few days have weakened and finally displaced. All the Santa Fe wires are down, and the railway officers tried for a long time in vain to discover the full extent of the accident. Third Vice President Springer said that the accident was re ported to have lieen caused by a water spout filling the •wav the bridge. The trail rectly into the water from rails, and the cars must have piled them selves one on the other. There are usually seven coaches in the train.

Tie Conspirator Who Lured Dr. Cronin to His Death. JOUET, Ills., May 0.—Patrick O'Sul livan, one of the threo men sentenced to state's prison for life for the murder of Dr. Cronin, died in the prison hospital here at 7:45 last evening. For five days he had been delirious and unable to vho Jecognize his friends and relatives were at his bedside during his lnsfc hours. Ever si nee he entered the jirisonhia I health had been delicate, and he gave up hope of securing a new trial he de clined rapidly, aud when a month ago he at tack of tho grip it quickly de veloped into rapid consumption. It had been known for two weeks that his death was only a question of days. Of the three men convicted of Dr. Cronin'« murder O'Sullivan has been ! considered the one most likely to make a confession, but there is little doubt that lie died without unsealing his lips. Father Daniels, who attended him dur ing his illness, said O'Sulliv spoke a word of confession to him, but maintained his inuoceuce. O'Sullivan was 36 years old. The body was sent to Wisconsin today. O'Sullivan's connection with the ■piracy that resulted in the murder of Dr. Cronin wns so obvious during the trial, and evidence so slight tending to clear him lias been adduced since, that the insinuation of his innocence, rather vigorously sent out from Chicago in the last few weeks, appear hollow to the men familiar with the case. From all the evidence he seemed to have entered the clan from patriotic motives, some what diluted by the belief that the af fair was a good thing to do in u busi ness way. His associations in the clan forced him along to the fore of the c spiracy, and finally ho found himself hip high in murder.

There is a strong undercurrent in favor of electing four more bishops, making the total number twenty-two. The sur face feeling, however, is against increas ing the number at this conference. Those who aspire to a bishop's seat are, of course, in favor of such an election, and their friends are endeavoring to show that the interests of the church demand more bishops.

Chief of Folico Hopper Says the Boy Will be Hanged. Newark, N. J., May 6.—The inquest into the cause of the death of old Thomas Ilaydon, the cashier of the Potter straw hat factory, has been postponed till this afternoon. There is considerable specu lation here as to whether young Fales will ever be hanged for the crime. His mother has not yet engagcfi any counsel for him. It is believed, however, that when the youth's trial comes up the de fense will be emotional insanity. The boy is beginning to somewhat the full meaning riblo charge against hiüi, and he i his assertions that he did to kill 11a disable him so that money that he knew was in the cash ier's possession. In discussing the case with a reporter, Chief of Police that Fales lias crime. He was case is perfectly clear against him, and there is little doubt in my mind that he will hang for the murder." The last time a boy under 20 was hanged in New Jersey was in 1827, in Hunterdon county. The youth was Jamos Guild, a colored boy of 12 years and 4 months, who killed Catherine lilakes, an aged woman, at Hopewell. Like Fales, Guild confessed the crime, but declared that he did not mean to kill the Whether Fales intended to kill Hay don or not, the fact that he did kill him and awaited his coming with a deadly weapon is against him.

Italy's Premier Fails to Secure a Vote of Confidence. Rome, May 6.—The fate of the Rudini cabinet sealed yesterday. A vote of confidence in the cabinet was rejected in the chamber, after a warm discussion, by a majority of twelve against Rudini and his ministers. The greatest excite ment prevailed in tho chamber when the result was announced. Rudini'« fall is now irrevocable, and any compro mise that would permit him to remain in office is impossible. The defeat is wholly on domestic policy. The for eign policy of the kingdom is not likely to change in the «lightest degree, and no fault has been found in this respect with Rudini's course. It is the preva lent convention that he lma grasped the financial issue as successfully and in telligently as he should have doue and that his recent efforts to improve the situation have only made it worse. It is not considered likely that Signor Crispi will be recalled by King Hum bert. and at present the course of the king is entirely in doubt. Big Fire in London.
