Oct. 7. The Cin cinnati & St.. Louis express, which left the Baltimore Ohio station in this ritv at 10:45 o'clock last night. collided with ' an east-bona rreignt train from Martinsburg, W.. Va., near Dickerson, killing three train men and jnjurjnjsjl: others. By al most a miracle the passengers all es- oAxwd uninsured. A mile west of 1- v Dickerson Station the road maKea a sham turn and then goes down a heavy grade in a deep cut, the banks being twenty feet or more aoove xne level of the tracks. Around this curve this train dashed just before midnight and began its descent, irathprinf? momentum each second. The freight train, which had orders to remain on a switch at Tuscaroora, onftmile hevond. until the express nassed. had a few minutes before left the switch and was slowly toiling up crrarip. Rnddfinlv there was a flash at hcndliirht. and the trainmen of the two engines were appalled at thel coming disaster, which they irame diatfilv saw could not be averted Two engines were almost upon eacn other and the engineers saw uiai nothiug could be done, as it was use less to apply the brakes. "JTUMP, BOYS !' shouted Engineer J. E. Welsh, of the freight train, as he sprang lrom his cab to the side of the track ; but hi3 fireman, J. B. Viets, had no time to get from Siis place at the furnace, and Georee llidenbaugh, a brake- man, who was also on the engine, was also naral.vzed with fear that he was unabied to heed the engineer's warning. J. W. Hand, fireman on the nassenevjr train, jumped and es raned uninjured. In an instant the L . , . two engines came together witn sucn force that they stood locked together on the trade, and formed a base upon which was piled in conlusion a pyra mid twenty feet high, consiating of three wrecked freight cars, the mail car and baggage car. These ears acted as a buffet for the passenger coaches attached to the Western bound express, and, though the pas sengers were violently thrown for ward, they ALL. ESCAPED UNINJURED. The passengers immediately set to work to extricate the train men from the debris, and a wrecking train, arriving a few hours later, assisted in the work. At 5 o'clock this afternoon the track was not yet free of debris, although the men had been, gotten out. Senator Voorhees and Tostmaster Dalton, of the House of Representa tives, were on the train on their way to Indiana. Reading. Pa.. Oct. 7. The corner stone of the Polish Catholic Church, Twefth and Spruce streets this city, was laid this afternoon. During the ceremony the floor, on which fully 2,000 men, women and children were standing, gave way, precipitating several hundred persons to the Dase merit, a distance of fifteen leer. Over 100 men and women were thrown In a heap and all were more or less Injured, some seriously and others fatally. : The wildest excitement followed and the 6,000 spectators ! became panic-etrlcken. Cooler heads, how ever, went to the rescue of the unfor tunate, and the Injured were taken into neighboring dwellings and phy slninna hastilV summoned. Later the wounded Were removed to their homes and to the various hospitals by ambulances. The number of Reading people fa tallv injured Is 6even ; number se riously injured, forty-six; number slightly injured seven. Lancaster contributes six to tl e seriously Injured, and eight to the 6lirhly iniured. The accident was caused by the walls (which had only been com pletod on Saturday) spreading. Rev. Father Lebicki had just commenced his sermon when the colapse came. It Is reported several of the injured have died, but the story cannot be confirmed.

Chicago, Oct. 7.There were no mnortant developments in the North Side street car strike to-day. It was after 2 o'clock this morning when the conference of the employes of the West Side Road, which is con trolled by the same syndicate, came to an end The advisability of strik ing without furtlies- notice, in order to eive moral support to the North Side men, was debated at length, but it was finally decided to refrain from this step until an attempt was made to operate the North Side Road with non-union or imported laborers. A general sentiment was expressed that so soon as any effort was made in this direction a strike should be de clared on the West Side, and before the conference was brought to a close an executive committee with power to act was appointed. Considerable satisfaction was expressed ' at the headquarters of the strikers when the result of the meeting was known to day, but no formal action was deem til necessary. There was no lack of transports tion facilities on the North Side dur ing the day. Fully 1,000 hacks, han soms, omnibuses, express wagons, GROCERY CARTS AND VEHICLES, of every description moved in one continuous stream from the county building to the city limits and back again. There were more of them, in fact, than there were loads of passen gers to carry. This condition of af fairs was due to the action of the Ex ecutive Committee of the strikers in issuing a general appeal to everyone having vehicles not otherwise em ployed to put them into service on the North Side. The meeting of the Trades and Labor Assembly this afternoon was much more numerously attended than usual in anticipation that the strike would come up for considera tion. Addresses were delivered by John Goodwin, of the West side Drivers' and Conductors' Association, and others, severely scoring the past career of Mr. Yerkes and denouncing his present attitude, and RESOLUTIONS WERE ADOPTED sympathizing with the strikers and pledging them the support of the amalgamated trades organizations of Chicago. Xt Wont be Conatructed Under the Stip ulations. Bay a Frealdent Shelton. Late last Saturday afternoon the committee appointed by the County Quarterly .Court last Monday, rode out In carriages, accompanied by Col. John F. Shelton, to view the proposed routeof the Greenwood Avenue Street Railroad. During the ride a good time was enjoyed, and after returning to the city the committee made its report, but it was so complicated with , restrictions and exactions from the railroad company that President Shel ton decided to abandon the project and the road will not bo constructed along that route. The Idea, however, of reaching Greenwood Cemetery and the proposed new park with the street cars has not been abandoned, as Col. Shelton is looking around to see if another route as equally acceptable to the public as Greenwood avenue cannot be secured, and if found the work of construction will be com menced this Fall. One thing Is cer tain, and that Is, that if the road is built it will be the cause In a year or two of building up a new city along its route, no matter which way it runs. A Frinter'a Wedding. The Louisville Commercial records the wedding of Mr. Ben D. Farmer on Thursday last to Mrs. Lizzie Far-, mer, of Elizabethtown, Ky. The groom will be remembered as foreman of the Tobacco Leaf for a few months last Spring, and his wedding is the culmination of what was thought to have been a fatal separation between man and wife, as the bride had se cured a legal separation. But the old devotion still lingered in Ben Farmer's honest heart, and about two months ago he visited his wife and children, when a happy reconciliation occurred, which brought about a new wedding. The bride's brother and several other relatives were present at Alexander's Hotel when Rev. Dr. Perkins, of St. Paul's Church, admin istered the ceremony. Word of Welcome. YELLOW FEVER ITEMS.

At a Into hour last night the meeting of the directors of the Age and Herald adjourned, and it was announced that no consondatian wouiu be made. It seems that both enmnanies wanted the earth and lull- ness there of, and at the last moment thev failed to agree on a basis of con solidation of the two papers. They will now proceed to fight it out if it takes all winter. As the field is far too small for two morning papers both have been and will doubtless continue to lose money. Horaoe Greely Lodge.

Clarkavllle'a Cordiality. The Nashville Banner of Saturday says : Clarksville is a big place. There are larger cities and more populous centers of activity, but there is no where to be found a finer community of people. This is the unanimous sentiment of the ex-Con federates who were so handsomely entertained there Thursday at the reception given by I the Forbes Bivouac to the invited bivouacs from other parts of this State and Kentucky. Clarksville is a pros perous and promising city, noted for its enterprise and culture, which has not yet reached that metropolitan aud cosmopolitan stage of develop ment when hospitality becomes a glittering generality and the hotel becomes the easy and convenient sub stitute for the home. Clarksville is imbued with the progressive spirit and takes a natural prido in her com mercial advantages, yet it is still a city of homes. Tho doors of these homes were thrown wide open Thurs day and the visitors were received with a cordial and hearty welcome. Death of Dr. William.
