Special to the Globe. RUSH (ii v. Minn.. Jan. 0. — The town of Kesseltown, west of* Rush City, is again stirred to its depth's by a crime committed this week even greater than the murder last week of the woman Christina Erickson by her husband. The seventeen-year-old daughter of Erick Erickson, who was at work in St. Paul, and who came home when notified of the tragic death of her mother, left town Tuesday to go to her now desolate home in Nesseltowu and endeavor to care for her little brothers, six in num ber, the oldest being but fourteen. Sev eral of the neighbors, together with C. P. Heinaman, of Minneapolis, who were witnesses before the coroner's jury Monday, went with her. On reaching her ONCE HAPPY HOME the girl was almost distracted with grief. Her mother dead by the hand of her lather and her .father in jail, her lit tle brothers hungry and the house desti tute of provisions. As a protection, Heiuamau offered to stay over the night with her and the children, which she, in her helpless condition, accepted. In the night he arose from his bed and entered the room where the young lady was Bleeping, and there, despite her cries, struggles and entreaties, committed the most heinous of crimes— rape. Her lit tle brothers heard -her -stilled cries but dared not interfere, and she, poor girl, threatened with death, had to submit. After he ACCOMPLISHED HIS PVHPO .E he threatened to shoot her if she ex posed him. Thursday she came into town and informed Justice Clark, who issued his warrant and Deputy .Sheriff Squires went out this afternoon and ar rested the man, brought him into town, and he now rests quietly in jail. C. P. Heinaman is a married man, a plasterer by trade, and a resident of Minneapolis. lie, with his wife and child, was up in the neighborhood visiting his wile's parents, and his wife, although having knowledge of his arrest, doe* not know the crime he is charged with. The ex amination will take place to-morrow. Mrs. Heinaman is in appearance a per fect lady, young looking and very pre possessing, and it is very strange under the circumstances that he should Rave committed the crime. When arrested he admitted the act, but denied he used any force to accomplish it. CLAIMS OF BLACKMAIL. The Arbuckle-Campbell Case Looks Something Like Black mail. New York; Jan.— 6.The third day of the proceedings in the Campbell-Ar buckle breach of promise suit opened to-day with a crowded court room. The prosecution finished this morning. Mr. Parsons said that the defense would not occupy much time. Miss Campbell took her seat in the witness chair and Mr. Parsons resume_f."__ cross-examina tion. Mr. Parsons asked % her if she had a letter written at the time she became distrustful. She answered that she could not produce any one letter, but that the entire correspondence made her distrustful. After some further ex amination, during which nothing inter esting was developed, the witness was excused. John E. Parsons then made a motion for non-suit on the ground that there was no evidence to show a breach of the promise of mar riage. The defendant had not refused to marry her. Judge Beach denied the motion, holding that the breach might be inferred from non-performance. On opening for the defense, Mr. Parsons said that Mr. Arbuckle had been loving, kind and affectionate to the last. While he was on a sick bed. she was consulting lawyers about the case. Now she wants money instead of Mr. Arbuckle and his love. It had been said that the suit had for its object the vindication of the plaintiff's reputation. But he had nothing to sayagainst.the character of the plaint iff. Several witnesses for the defense were then examined in reference to Arbuckle's illness and his having to leave the city on account of ill health. Other letters written by the defendant to the plaintiff were read, but they con tained nothing of interest outside of the *■__" and "11" expressions. After the recess the counsel announced that the case was closed. Arguments will be made on Monday. DOUBLE ASSASSINATION. An Unknown Murderer Kills Two Men in Missouri. Arcadia?

SAINT PAUL, MINN., SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 7, 1888.— TWELVE PAGES. A RAILROAD WRECK* Five Men Killed in a Wreck on the Canadian Pa cific Road. Description of the Accident as Viewed by an Eye Witness. The Union Depot at Atchison, Kan., Destroyed by Fire. Three Men Terribly Burned by Burning Alcohol- Other Accidents. Special to the Globe. Winnipeg, Jan. 6.— The passengers who passed the scene of the late acci dent on the Caundian Pacific at Middle ton, 108 miles east of Port Arthur, ar rived at Winnipeg to-day. The accident was of a serious character, the two freight trains having collided on a high; trestle. C. A. Milligan, a young man just out from England, who was going through. to the Pacific coast, said the accident happened between 1 and 2 o'clock Wednesday morning. He ar rived at the peninsula on the eastern train bound for Winnipeg at about 0:30 o'clock the same morning, and the train: stopped there until 7 o'clock at night, ; when they were brought up to the east side of the huge trestle. They were then taken down the gulf, eighty feet deep or so, to the other side. All the passengers were transported in a few hours and started anew on their journey westward. Milligan learned from inquiries at the time of the accident that the " freight trains had met on the trestle spanning the abyss through which they passed. The freight going east was traveling at the rate of about twelve miles an hour, having just emerged from the tunnel which is cut through the rock at the foot of the hill to the north. The westbound train was running much faster, proba bly twenty miles an hour, the engiue of the west train became fastened in the trestle, and stuck there, while the ten der and several cars jumped right Over the top and went Cn ASHING TO THE BOTTOM. The engine coming from the east went through the trestle immediately after - the collision, and took down a number of the freight cars, he could not say how many. Two engineers, one fireman and one brakeinan were killed outright in the accident. One man, wedged in under the wreckage, was noticed to be alive after the accident, and one of his comrades undertook to remove him by grasping his hand, which was sticking out. he rescuer was hor rified when he broke the man's fingers, which had been frozen while he was in this deplorable position. The engineer, for such was his position on one of the ill-fated trains, was rescued from the ruins in a few minutes, but expired in less than an hour afterwards. An injured fireman was brought into Port Arthur from the scene of the wreck. When he saw the train coming to the bridge he had felt that something was going to happen, and jumping from his engine made his way over the tops of the cars: The man had a HAllt BREADTH ESCAPE, as a portion of the traiu had run over a broken part of the trestle before he cleared himself. In jumping from the train the fireman received injuries which may prove fatal. Milligan noticed one man underneath the wreck, all his body being visible except the head, which was horribly mangled, with the edge of the car lying on top of it. The train hands supposed that the boilers of the engines exploded when the trains struck, and this caused the bulk of the damage to the bridge. No body seemed to know the cause of the accident. It was thought that the men had been too long on the train going east and had fallen asleep. Milligan heard that the conductor of one of the trains had gone into a station along the line and got a ticket, which he after ward discovered was not marked "O. K." The damage is estimated at $180,000. Traffic was delayed forty eight hours. General Superintendent White being questioned, stated that the accident was CAUSED THROUGH A MISTAKE on the part of the operator in not de taining one of the trains. The trains met on the east end of the bridge and both engines were precipitated to the bottom. Atkinson, an engineer, was killed, nollwood, pilot on one of the engines, met the same fate. Brakeinan Oster and Fireman Nichol were also killed, Fireman Haynes escaped with a broken leg. Two engines and twelve cars were badly wrecked. No estimate has been made on the damage to the rolling stock although it is believed it will be 1100,000. A Union Depot Burned. Atchison, Kan., Jan. 6.— The Atchi son union railway depot took fire at 3 o'clock this afternoon; and in about three hours was entirely destroyed. The building was used as a depot for all the railroads centering in this city, with ticket and telegraph offices, bag gage and waiting rooms, the upper story being used as a hotel, under the management of W. C. Johnston. All the depot and hotel furniture, except ing the carpets, was saved. The loss is about 1125,000, upon which there is an insurance of 160,000. Work on a new building will commence at once. Three Men Terribly Burned. Deteoit, Mich., Jan. This morn ing three employes of the Stroh Brew ing company were engaged in varnish ing a large iron beer vat in one of the cellars with a preparation composed largely of alcohol. The men were pro vided with candles, fixed to the brims of their caps. One of these lights was permitted to approach too near the freshly varnished surface, and in a moment the whole vat was a sheet of flame. The workmen were horribly burned, and two of them are not ex pected to live. The victims are Max Blum, Jacob Emig and John Frank. Death of Mrs. Avey. Cincinnati, Jan. 6.— Mrs. J. . H.

O.— A story has been set afloat that the Chippewa river was changing its channel, so that; in a very short time 'the great log raft ing works at Beef slough would be ren dered useless. The statement was made at the same time that Frederick Wayer hauser, president of the Mississippi River Logging company, purchased the Eau Claire Lumber company's property with a view of forming a Beef slough Out of the dells pond and the lake at Eau Claire. Those in charge of the headquarters of the Mississippi river syndicate in this city know nothing of this news; and gave little credence to it. The Beef slough works are supplied from the dells pond, and are only of ad vantage to the mill owners who operate along the Mississippi. More than once complaint has been made that the logs should be taken from this field and sent away. If Beef slough should close up and the logs be manufactured here, the lumbermen would be happy, but such is not likely to be the case. A Literary Indian. Washington.

Kasson has been •talked up some, but the pol ished John A. is so seldom seen in - lowa that the grangers would like a .i square look at him before giving him 'their vote. It is conceded that Wilson's -record in the senate has not added to -the prestige he enjoyed as a member of 'congress during and after the war. He had not reached that prominence in the '"senate which his supporters six years 'ago expected of him. There is good and 'sufficient reason for this, however, in "those times narrow partisanship was the gauge by which statesmanship was measured, and viewed from that stand point, Wilson was a great man. If he has become dwarled somewhat from his former stature it is because the political vision of the people has undergone a change, and if he goes back to the sen ate, as now seems pretty certain, he will owe his return to a"" fortunate condition of circumstances which prevents the forming of a coalition against him.

Jan". 6.— 'the can-' test for the speakership- of the house has in a manner absorbed public inter est to-day. There, are evidences that Mr. Berryhill, of Polk county, has made a very ingenious combination, some thing like the one made to secure the 'election of Speaker Head two years ago, -which was manipulated -'by. him. The 'comprehensive scheme is shown to have, 'been the bringing out of so many am bitious candidates for speaker as could be induced to allow the use of their names. As a result, Riley, of Lucas county, represents the eastern portion of the state; Wilson, of Cass, the west ern; Roach, of Lyon, the Republican stronghold of the northwest; Wilbur, the. north central, and Redmond, of Pow esheik, the central portion. The object of so many candidates was to produce a deadlock in the caucus, so that the name of Berryhill could be sprung and he could go in with a whoop. Mr. Berryhill himself ■ is reported to ."have approached Redmond to-day with ■a proposition looking to the turning .over of his strength at the proper time. He claimed that Wilson was not compe tent for the place and -.that Redmond had not sufficient strength to justify his candidacy and proposed that the two unite and give him a boom. Wilson is a farmer and has quite a. number of grangers among his followers. Red mond, : . : ■ .. WITH FIENDISH GLEE, carried Berryhill's proposition to him, .and' the Cass county granger resented the challenge of his ability and is now siJerryhiU's bitter opponent. The other candidates took a tumble and are now '^solidly arrayed against the ambitious young candidate from Polk county, and with a lively prospect that he will be badly defeated when the balloting be gins. The office of state binder is a .nice, rich plum, second only in fatness t to the state printer. S. S. Merchant, of the Cedar Rapids Republican.is serving his -second - term and ■ was sanguine of his election until to-day, when it was demonstrated that Charles Greene, member of a large publishing house here, was - developing considerable strength. The contest for the chief clerkship of the house evidently lies be tween Sidney A. Foster and Capt. Nichols, both of this city, with Foster apparently in the lead. The secretary ship of the senate has engendered A BITTER FIGHT between j Don Donan, son of ex-Con gressman Donan, of Independence, and ; William Toman, of the same town. /reman publishes a weekly Republican -paper, has just been displaced as post master and doubtless feels that he ought to have something right away.

Red Wing, June Last Thurday at noon C. Ammundson left his home at Esdaile for the woods with his team. A few hours later the team returned without a driver. Parties went out im mediately, and, taking the route gone over by Ammundson soon reached the place where he had stopped. Here his cap and mittens were found but nothing more, and a diligent search in the vicin ity was fruitless. The same evening, it is claimed, Ammundson was seen four teen miles further north, but since then nothing has been seen or heard of him. Parties are now scouring the woods in search, but their efforts have thus far proved unavailing. It is probable he was demented. There is not the least probability of any crime having been committed, as several correspondents have stated. Work of an Incendiary. Special to the Glooe. Beloit, Wis., Jan. 6.— Fire broke out early this morning in a three-story building belonging to the Wisconsin shoe factory, at Janesvllle.

The loss on the building will about $2,500, while the total loss cannot be estimated. The insurance will probably cover all losses. The fire was evidently the work of an incendiary, as a door under the build ing was open and owing to the shutting down of the factory there had been no fire in the building for several days.

The Dakota Contingent Ap pear Before the Indian Committee And Present Arguments in Favor of Opening* the Reservation. Senator Voorhees Indignant at the Bad Manners of Mr. Chamberlain. Evidence in the Ihoefce-Car lisle Contested Election Case— Other Items. Special to the Globe. Washington, Jan. 6.— This has been a good day for the friends of the bill for the opening of the great Sioux reserva tion. A ".subcommittee of the senate committee on Indian affairs received the Dakota delegation this morning at 10 o'clock. There were present Senators Dawes, Jones, of Arkansas, and Mor gan, of Alabama. The Dakotians were Moody, King, Pettigrew, Kleiner, Day, Gilford and Sherman. The Jones bill, which was drawn by Git ford and King, was first discussed. Senator Moody and Mr. King expressed their views of the various clauses in the Jones biil wherein it differs with the original Dawes bill. The senators asked numerous questions and the gentlemen present . answered them readily, fully, dispassio*iately,earnestly. Mr. King was especially lucid, and Messrs. Kleiner, Moody and Day were vigorous and effective in their state ments. Senator Dawes gave them marked and respectful attention. He was broad-minded, CHAI.ITAHI.E AND STATESMANLIKE in his attitude. He said that he had no special desire to force his bill unamend ed upon the senate or the people, and simply wanted to know the facts. Mr. Kleiner -eloquently pleaded for relief from squaw men and their influence, He said : "If we are compelled to de pend upon the signatures of Indians without an adequate appropriation to meet the expenses of obtaining the same, we will fail. . The squaw men marry into the .tribes -merely tor the purposes of speculation. By tak ing an Indian - wife they can each have unlimited acreage for their cattle. They acquire influence with the Indians, and can by fraudulent and ly ing arguments prevent their agreement to any treaty. Mr. Pettigrewsaid "That is one. of our principal troubles, the squaw men.'-' He referred to Garland, the man who recently turned his back upon civilization, refinement and splen did family connections to' marry : ■•"■. '-■*■. AN Al.r.K<;Kl> INDIAN PRINCESS. By so doing he acquires lands and standing in the tribe, and by such means he will oppose the opening of the reser vation for purely speculative purposes. "If we must have the signatures of In dians who are too ignorant to . make treaties we must have an appropriation to meet the expenses of the same." Mr. Day said: '•lam disinterested, except as a Dakotian, 1 know from actual con tact with the Indians for nearly twenty years that squaw men are our " principal obstacles. I can speak the Sioux language and go among them freely. 1 know that they would be willing to have lands in sev eralty but .for the squaw men, who in fluence, if they do not control, them. I believe the reservations should be opened without further delay, but 1 be lieve in retaining all proper laws to pre vent the Indians from being defrauded. I think that school sections ought to be reserved for them and school houses be built for them." Senator Moody said: "This is a QUESTION OF VITAL INTEREST to the hill country, as well as -to the country east of the Missouri river. The whites need outer communication badly. The Indians ought to be protected in their original rights and I should be the last man to consent to injuring them, or depriving them of these rights. But the progressive white men ought to be considered as at least their equals and the reservation ought to be opened." Judge Gifford pleaded fot the striking out of the provisions in Dawes' bill for the reimbursement of settiers upon the Crow Creek and Winnebago agencies. The result of .it all is that the Dawes bill will be amended in several particu lars and substituted for the Jones bill. Senator Dawes consents to strike out his clause for tribal patents, and for the reimbursement of the Crow Creek and Winnebago settlers. School sec tions are to be reserved for the Indians. The homestead laws pure and simple are to obtain in the reservation when opened, and about a million acres added to the land to be thrown open by the original Dawes bill, It was shown to the committee that there are fewer In dians on the reservation than rations are drawn for, and after giving 320 acres to each of the Indian families in the six different, bands, there would still be about 800 to 1,000 acres to each family, thus claiming that none of them are to be robbed of - their rights. Every Da kotan present . .,_ . PRAISES THE COMMITTEE and especially Senator Dawes for the broadgauge and liberal manner in which the subject was received, and the con cessions freely and cordially made by the committee. It will be remembered that Senator Jones visited the reserva tion in 1886 upon an investigating com mittee, and is personally cognizant of many of the facts set forth by the gen tlemen from Dakota. Hon. M. 11. Day leaves this evening for New York to join his wife and child. He will return here about the middle of February. This evening in the National hotel Mr. Pettigrew said: "l would like to tell the people of Dakota that I have seen the bill which Springer intends to force upon our people. I saw a printed copy to-day. SPRINGER PROPOSEB to destioy every, county that has not 2,000 population and reorganize it. This will give rise to new county seat fights and speculative stealing. He also pro eposes what we shall have in our consti tution. He fixes upon two representa tives for us, and does not let us fix the districts for ourselves. : His entire bill is practically a political scheme to keen us out for three years, and even then, after all of -our trouble, he can keep us out. unless we send one Democratic rep resentative and one Republican undone Democratic senator and one Republican." it is a piece of political • chicanery, not not to use the word knavery, for which he ought to be execrated if not hated by every intelligent man in Dakota.' His bill is simply politically infamous." j E. A: Sherman, of Sioux Kalis, and president of the First National bank of that place, who is here for a few days, will leave Sunday morning for Boston and return the latter part of the month, THE VVNTER CARNIVAL OPENS ON WEDNESDAY, JAN, 25.

The Conduct of Mr. Chamberlain Calls Forth an Indignant Ex pression From Mr. Voorhees. Wasiiinoton, Jan. 6.— A representa tive of the United Press, while in con versation with Senator Voorhees this morning, happened to mention tho speeches delivered in the house on" Wednesday, and the interest attending them. The senator from Indiana im mediately expressed himself as followsi "The courteous attention paid by Democratic senators while Mr. Sher man was speaking on Wednesday was but little imitated by the Republicans while I was speaking, but I would scarcely refer to this if it were not for an incident that had occurred late in the afternoon. I had been -peaking about an hour when laughter from a group of senators on the lb-publican side attracted my attention, followed by conversation in tones almost as pro nounced as my own. I raised my voice so as to attract the attention of the dis turbers, and the president quietly touched his desk with the gavel. The noise ceased temporariJv. It caused me no little regret later to discover that this breach of the dignity of the senate had been caused by Mr. Chamberlain, of England. I say regret, because, had I known that Mr. Chamberlain was tho disturber, I would have said that 'if I were forced to submit to the careless ness of my associates of the senate chamber, I was not bound to bear tho bad manners brought from over the sea by one who failed to appreciate the privileges of the senate tioor." How ever. I say it with renewed emphasis this morning." ... AFTER CARLISLE'S SEAT. The Committee on Elections Heap Evidence in the Contest Case. Washington, Jan. There was a full meeting of the committee on elec tions to-day to agree upon a line of pro cedure in the Thoebe-Carlislc contested election case. The contestant, Thocbe, was present with his counsel, Messrs. Sypher and Steever, of this city. No one formally represented the speaker. Mr. Sypher began the presentation of Mr. The. he's case immediately after the committee had been called to order. Ho made a long argument, reviewing the preliminary declaiations and urging the importance of the committee going into the district and taking testimony, de claring it to be the duty of the commit tee. He said that Mr. Carlisle had him self acknowledged on the night after election that lie was defeated and that Mr. Thu-be was elected. Mr. Thcebo followed Mr. Sypher and spoke briefly. He said he came out of the -shop to ap pear before the committee that it might see and know him, and that be might have the opportunity of making a per personal statement of the facts in the case. He was questioned by members of the committee, and at the conclusion of his statement, said if the case was decided against him he would retire to his work in the shop. Mr. Sypher and Mr. Thoebe claimed that on the night of the election, Mr. Carlisle's defeat was so evident that, a conference, of his friends was held and a decision reached to hold back the returns until they could be. fixed up so as to give him a majority. This was done, and done so boldly and' clumsily that the .returns themselves showed that changes and interpolations had been made and made in the same handwriting in different precincts, the fraud was manifest. Mr. Thttbe and his attorney charged that it was notori ous in the vicinity that friends of Mr. Carlisle had induced the attorney orig inally employed by Tho.be to negiect the proper means of gathering evidence. Mr. Sypher claimed to have affidavits in support of his charges. The committee took a recess until 1:30. After recess Mr. Sypher, on behalf of Mr. Thcebe, presented, in the form of written reso lutions, the suggestions outlined in his speech of the forenoon. He said he pre ferred that the committee should adopt the resolution appointing a select com mittee to . visit the contested election district and report its findings to the house. The cominitte at 3 o'clock went into secret session. In secret session the proceedings were confined to the reading of several of the affidavits, and without an attempt to come to an agree ment upon the propositions submitted by Mr. Thoebe's counsel, the committee adjourned until to-morrow, when some action is likely to be had. AMPLE 31ATKRIAL. Chairman Mills Will Get His Com mittee Early to Work, as There is Plenty to Do. Washington, Jan. 6.— Chairman Mills, of the committee on ways and means, says that he will call the com mittee together without delay and will proceed at once to the consideration and formulation of a tariff reform bill, hav ing in view revenue reduction as well. "I do not think," said he, "that it will be necessary to allow any protracted hearings of manufacturers or others in terested in this class of legislation. We have ample material on hand of that character from which source all neces sary information may be obtained. These hearings, if granted, will only cause delay. The condition of the coun try and the treasury is such that it re quires immediate action upon the ques tion of reduction of revenue. The pres ident asks it and the secretary of the treasury urges it, and 1 shall "do all I can to carry out their wishes." The chairman added somewhat emphatic ally: "If any effort should be made to defeat the measure which we think will cover the ground the parties engaged in it will suffer." Northwestern Personals.
