jV/ORK TRAIN COLLIDES WITH
THIRTEf\ INJLREiJ. TWO fATALLY
VICTIMS BELONGED TO CREW OF
ENGINEER FOR SOME UNKNOWN
REASON FAILED TO SLACK-
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
EASY ABOUT FAR EAST.
No Serious Developments Expected at
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.

Sofia. Bulgaria, Oct. 7.The Austro

circles here and among the Macedoni

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

too stringent, Turkey may prefer was
to accepting them, while if they are
not stringent they will certainly be

HE AND HIS ASSI3TANTCHARGED
WITH MISCONDUCT IN
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
"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
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.
