E.H.BHRKER THIKD STREET $ jV/ORK TRAIN COLLIDES WITH WITH STEEL. THIRTEf\ INJLREiJ. TWO fATALLY VICTIMS BELONGED TO CREW OF A HUNDRED ME-N 0 W0RK ENGINEER FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON FAILED TO SLACK- EN SPEED. Los Angeles. Cal. Oct. 7.Four rail road laborers were killed and thirteen injured, two of them probably fatally, in a collision at the Southern end of Chatsworth yard tunnel on the South ern Pacific railroad yesterday. The victims belonged to a crew of one hundred men being taken a work. At 3:30 o'clock yesterday morning a work train left Driver station, in this city, and proceeded to Chats worth Park, where the men were taken aboard the first car, which was loaded with railroad steel and con struction material. The engine was placed behind the train and pushed out on the new cut-off leading to the partly completed tunnel, s*x miles dis tant, where were two flatcars loaded with railroad iron, which had been Left on the Main Track Saturday night and which were to have been picked up by the work train. The engineer for some un known reason did not slacken speed, and the first car, laden with laborers, crashed into the "dead" cars on the '.rack. The impact doubled both cars up like a jackknife and threw the five score men into the air on all sides. The majority saved themselves by jumping, but many were injured by the flying pieces of steel. The dead and injured were placed in a box car which was hastily pre pared with a covering of straw on the floor, and the rim to Los Angeles was made. Ambulances met the train and the men were taken to the hos pital. EASY ABOUT FAR EAST. No Serious Developments Expected at This Time. London, Oct. fi. No apprehension exists in the mind of the British gov ernment or the diplomatists in Lon don that the Par Eastern situation jvilL bring forth any immediate seri ous developments. This feeling of temporary security on the eve of the day that Russia should, but admitted ly will not, evacuate Manchuria, is due to assurances on the part of Japan that so long as the negotiations now pending between herself and Russia present a reasonable prospect that a settlement will be reached. Japan will take no action hostile to Russia in the matter of Manchuria. It is fur ther learned that these negotiations looking to a final settlement vi. the Russo-Japanese spheres of influence in the Far East and especially deal ing with the situation in Korea, are progressing satisfactorily at Tokio. TURKEY MAY PREFER WAR. New Reform Measures May Be Too Stringent. Sofia. Bulgaria, Oct. 7.The Austro Russian note to the porte has beofl re ceived somewhat skeptically in ofiicial circles here and among the Macedoni an organizations with utter disbelief that any good can come from it. One point on which all parties are agreed is that action is the only satisfactory pledge of reform that tne Ottoman government can give. The bulgarian government is anxious to see the promised details of the new meas ures, but it is ('eared that if they arc too stringent, Turkey may prefer was to accepting them, while if they are not stringent they will certainly be useless. PRODDED BY POWELL. United States Minister Informs Santo Domingo That It Must Act. San Domingo. Oct. 7. It was re ported yesterday morning that United States Minister Powell had informed the Dominican minister for foreign affairs that he expects to receive with in ten days the names of the arbi trators in the case of the claims of the improvement company, and add ing that matters cannot be delayed much longer.

F,FTFFN SEVERA INDICTMENTS OF TH E ND INGS ARE PERSONS. ALREADY INDICTED $ N. Tm S SOLVED HE AND HIS ASSI3TANTCHARGED WITH MISCONDUCT IN OFFICE. Washington Oct. 7. Fifteen new indictments wore brought in by the supreme court for the District of Columbia yesterday as the final result of the investigation in the postqfflcc department. Several of these find ings were against persons who have already been indicted. The new in dictments involve James N. Tyner. the late assistant attorney general for the postoffice department, and his as sistant. Harrison J. Barrett James T. Metcalf superintendent of tne money order system of the postorftce de partment Norman Metcalf, son of James T., Harry C, H-'llenb-ok. pres ident and general manager of the Wynkoop. HalleribaCk & Crawford Company of New York, the firm whir!, for several years supplied the de partment with its money order blanks, and William D. Doremus, who is connected with a house which has been supplying a stamp cancelling machine to the department. There were additional indictments Against August W. Machen, former superintendent of free deliv ery George W. Heavers, formerly chief of the salary and allowance di vision: W. Scott Towers, who was in charge of a substation of the Wash ington city postoffice, and State Sen ator George A Green of New York. In some eases there were several in dictments against one person. Con cerning the one indictment against Tyner and Barrett, the following statement was made by the podtoffice department "Three Indictments charge Tyner and Barrett with conspiracy and two additional indictments charge Barrett with agreeing, while still in office, to receive f( OH for services rendered or to be rendered in cases pending be fore him as officer. All the indict ments are founded upon the treat ment by Tyner and Barrett of the business of the so-called bond invest ment companies Misconduct in Office. The principal charge against Tyner and Barrett is that of miscon duct in office, in obstructing and pre venting the due orderly administra tion of the law. It is slated that there were no less I ban eighty of the so called bond investment companies to which the opinion of the the depart ment was sent together v. ith the cir cular intimating that Barrett's ser vices as attorney could be secured. The charge against rlallenback and the Metcalfs is that of conspiracy to defraud the United States In connec tion with a contract to furnish the postal service with its money order blanks. While it is not so stated in the indictment, it Is asserted by the postoffice authorities that the govern ment, lost at least $50,000 in one year by this arrangement The new charge against Machen is that of Accepting a Bribe in connection with the eilvery of badges worn by rural free delivery carriers which were made by Charles J, Heller of Philadelphia. There are two new indictments against Beavers, one of them charging him with accepting %'1T each on a number of book typewriting machines sold to the government by Scott Tow ers and others alleging misconduct in the purchase of stamp-cancelling ma chines from W. D. Doremus. Towers is also indicted in connection with the transaction with Heavers on the charge of agreeing to pay Heave, $25 on each machine. Doremus is indict ed for defrauding the government In the sale of his cancelling machines. The present understanding is that this series of indictments is the last which there will be any special effort to secure, and the postoffice authori ties generally consider that the de partmental investigation is at an end. Payne Is Pleased. Postmaster General Payne yester day expressed great satisfaction at the conclusion of the postoffice de partment investigation culminating in yesterday's indictments. He said that he expected to have the report o. Mr. Brlstow in his hands within ten days. Mr. Payne said that all the evidence secured in the investigation had now been placed before the grand jury and passed upon, and approx imately thirty different persons indict ed as the result of the probing that has been in progress since last spring.
