Nineteen pOTMMM were instant ly killed and 48 otliera injured near Montz, 1.a., early today when an excursion train on the Ya/.00 and Mississippi valley iail roud collided with a freight train. The excursion train was filled ■witht pleasure seekers returning to their homes after spending Sunday in New Orleans. The freight plowed its way through several of the excursion coaches, some of the bodies or the victims being so badly mutilated that It is impossible to determine either sex or color. The bodies of 13 unidentified victims have been brought to the New Orleans morgue. The death list may be increased. Thirteen persons were killed outright, six later dying at tne charity hospital here. The dead Include seven white persons, the rest being negroes. The accident, It Is said, was caused by a misunderstanding of orderß. The excursion train had stopped at a tank for water when an express freight train, running 50 miles an hour, crashed into the rear end. Three of the ex cursion coaches were telescoped, the engine grinding 13 persons to pieces. <s> <$> <S> TO TENSION WEBTKRK <S> <» UNION EMl'I/OVKS ♦ «> <S> <$> The local office has re- <?> <$> ceived notice that the West- <S> <$ era Union Telegraph com- •$> <§> pany has completed details <$• <$> of a pension system for old <S> <?> employees.

Fowler, World's Greatest Phrenologist, Personally Examines the Winning Candidate's Bumps for The Times. The Times is most fortunate in being able to secure this analysis of Gov. Wilson's character by Miss Fowler, the greatest of living phrenologists. She made an exhaustive personal study of the president-elect's head recently in a New York photographic studio, immediately after the victorious candidate sat for a portrait study. In this article she tells what she found. FLOODS RISING Commissioner Woods Is on the anxious seat today over the floods in the low ports of town. At East 52nd and I street the water has been damned back by street grading work, and there is a large lake formed. This has gradually risen until the water is threatening three residences. A call of alarm came from the residents this morning, and Woods has a large gang of men out there digging to try to let the water off, but it is rising so fast he is not sure he can get it lowered in time to prevent the people from having to take to the second story or get into boats. Czar FeiJinand of Bulgaria, who personally Is leading the as sault on Constantinople, would hardly dare, It 1b pointed out, at tempt the occupatldn of the city If euch a move were opposed by the bluejackets landed by the powers. The landing of foreign forces, It Is believed here, will soon be ordered. Even Russia admits that permanent occupa tion of Constantinople Is not de sirable. Reports of a Christian mas sacre In Constantinople Saturday are not credited here Latest dispatches say the gov ernment is disarming the popu lace, but the fact that England and American residents are en trenching at Robert college, an American institution. Is consid ered significant. OFFICIALLY IT IS MT. TACOMA An attempt will be made to have the name ">l(. Kittii ter" changed to "Mt. Ta runis" on official American maps. The New York Even ing Post has related to the name "Mt. Rainier" as being objectionable and has ad vised "Mt. Tacoma" as pre serving the Indian name.

KOWLKII. President-elect Wilson, I find, is a peer among his fellows for organizing ability and power to direct and block out work. He is essentially a man of thought and reflection, and second ly a man of action, but his action is always preceded by his thought. usuai gru; nence ills muscular system and substantial framework are sustained, and he shows much tenacity of mind and body. His height and distinct outline of features denote the motive temperament, which accompanies the energetic, executive, percep tive, fact-gathering and scientific faculties. He is eager for knowledge. A smattering of any subject wllf not satisfy him. He goes to the root of any question he studies REASONING CHARACTER.—He reasons about his work'ir a philosophic way, and the faculty of causality gives him capacity td reason from cause to effect. PERCEPTIVE CHARACTER.—His perceptive trend of mind gives him a wonderful memory of events and enables him to keep In his mind's eye facts and minutia concerning what is taking place around him. ANALYTICAL CHARACTER.—When examining Woodrow Wilson's head, I remarked that one of the chief sources of his in tellectual power came from his phenomenal analytical faculty, which enables him to remember, classify and compare historical events ANIMAL TENDENCIES SMALL.—He is not a man to be car ried away by his appetites or passions. - - INTUITIVE CHARACTER.—Gov. Wilson Is quite intuitive In his perception of character, but he may not always trust to his In* tuitions. . His sympathies are quite strongly represented through his large organ of benevolence. Although he does not alter his views simply to agree with people, he Is liberal-minded enough to make allow ances for a wjde latitude of other men's minds. INDEPENDENT CHARACTER.—The crown of his head Indi cates that he has an independent spirit, Is manly, rather dignified, persevering in his work, knowing how to overcome impediments. He has not a business type of head nor a large development of acquisitiveness. WHAT KIND OF PRESIDENT?—He will make a thoughtful, dignified and considerate president, not one to yield to persuasions, yet desirous of being sufficiently popular to carry out reforms that he thinks necessary. What failures he may make will not be through lack of thought, but rather Incapacity to carry out his plans. TACOMA, WASHINGTON, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1912. TEMPERAMENT. — Gov. Wil son is largely of the mental-mo tive type, which enables him to use his brain with less fatigue than the average man. He can keep up his nervous energy by conserving his strength, and ac complish as much in a quiet way as those persons who exercise great vehemence. He will need to guard against his tendency to take on too great i a variety of work without allow -1 ing himself time for food or rest. His temperament will not Incline him to take much leisure. Were his features more filled out and his body more rotund, such night be the case. Personally it night be an advantage to him to idd 10 or 15 pounds weight by ndulging in more leisure. The activity of his brain absorbs a large portion of his circulation, and his nutritive system Is not bo much to the fore as I would like to see. He Is wiry, and possesses un- MEASURE ALL CARS Commissioner Mills, with De tective 1). O. Smith went down to the street railway barn today to start the work of measuring up the cars and inspecting the prop erty of the company under the new ordinance passed last week by the council. Whin the cars are measured the capacity will be posted, and it will then be unlawful for the company to allow more than the •opacity to get on. The street railway officials hav«* signified an intention of as sisting the city to enforce the new law. The council was informed this morning that the pipe for the third unit of the Green river gravity water system has been shi|>i«d from the factory, and will be here later. The work is being held back by the failure of the pipe to get here when it should. t> !> CONVERSATION AND BUSINESS . : » BLOCKED AT TACOMA HOTEL »> Ben Norman, host of the Tacoma hotel, sent a letter to the mayor this morning complaining of the noise on the wa j-jterfront.
