Over Three Thousand Per sons Take in the Novel Spectacle. ftoast Ox and Cider, with Po litical Speeches on the Side. Four Stands Belching Out Campaign Thunder at One Time. Did you ever see afbarbecue? Minneapolis never enjoyed such a Spectacle until last night, but will never forget it. Many persons, doubt less, have seen a barbecue under ordi nary circumstances, with the crowd, the roasted steer and the campaign enthu siasm; but these never saw a barbecue unless they saw it at night, with the flare of the torches, the glare of the bonfires, the glint ot the electric light, and all of this magnified and intensified by a murky night, with its weird enlargement and enchantment. Such was the barbecue last night. Crowds, enthusiasm, weirdness and all, it was a conspicuous success in every particular. The bad day and threatening night overhead were against it, but. notwith standing these, it was a howling, novel and unique success. Had the night been fair, there would have been an insuffer able crush and no room for the crowds, for as it was the ball park was uncom fortably crowded at every point of at traction. THE spectacle seen from a little distance, as upon dis embarkation from the train at the lower ■station, the ball park presented a scene jot often witnessed in the midst of a city. High over the park floated a fiery mist, the reflection of the myriad lights upon the murky clouds which overhung the scene. From the center of the park a huge bonfire sprung up and shed a ruddy glare upon everything in the neighborhood. Twelve electric lights assisted in dispelling the darkness, while around the entire surrounding fence, and all over the grand stand, were hundreds of campaign torches, giv ing a lurid glare that was hemmed in by the moist, murky atmosphere. The scene within was an inspiring one, and the pen of a Scott or the brush of a Hogarth could alone do it justice. Crowds of men and women, variously estimated from eight to fifteen thou sand, were spread over the ground, in the stand and upon the bleaching boards. In the north center of the ground, surrounded by a clamoring multitude, ten or twelve deep, was the inclosure which contained the barbe cue proper. Upon huge tables were the brown and red carcasses of the two roasted oxen. A dozen boasting an ox. r-a/vers busily plied knife and steel dicing off the juicy flakes to supply the multitude. Upon a series of shelves were thousands of loaves of bread, which halt a dozen men were cutting into slices, which inclosed the flakes ot meat and were passed out into the crowds. The din and tumult and jlamor in this vicinity was appalling, out it was music to the ears of the man agers. Scattered about in as many lifferent places were half-barrels of sider and about each barrel was a jolly. noisy moo, arnieu with tin cups, busily attacking the barrels and lowering the con tents of apple juice. An im mense bonfire roared and sput tered in the cen ter; eating up mill wood by the wagon load, while about it and bathed in its rud dy glow, the crowd capered and jested, out ot reach and range of the speaking. All in all it was a weird, wild and fascinat ing scene, which has never been equaled in Minneapolis. The speaking stands were four in number. lie main one was directly in front of and connected with the grand stand. Over it was a banner with the legend, "The Owl Club Bids You Welcome." The second faced the SCENE ON A STAND. . deadline: boards, the third was in what vas center-field of the ball ground, and lie fourth, devoted solely to Scandi lavians, was near the corner toward the ailroad. Each stand had its own band md its own crowd when the exercises inened. and each made its own success. I his is a general de a of the stands, the ar angement and he plan. The •ntire affair was i signal success, nd the man ners were radi al with delight .Iter all the ranking, and on •p of the bad leather, the re sit was most gratifying. The originator of the l arbecueandthe man to whom i's success is prin cipally due is Joe Jensen. Die rork was unremitting, and lost night ie was as happy as a clam at high tide. "I'll give 'em a clam-bake at the Exp - siti.on next," he said. "We'll wake these fellows up yet." - TIIK SI'EAKIXG. It was nearly 9 o'clock when the speaking began. The procession was somewhat delayed in leaving the West hotel, but the string of carriages, pre ceded by a band, wound its way to the ball park, where its arrival was an nounced by a series of cheers. The ap pearance of Mr. Wilson and Senator Buck was the signal for a lively round of app Base, which contin ued until they were safely housed in their stands. Col. Glenn presided over the destinies of the main stand and in troduced Mr. Wilson as the first speaker. The next governor was in excellent voice and never appeared to better ad vantage. His tariff talk was straight to the point and he w. s interrupted by fr q nt and hearty applause. Mayor iiaw&oii, of Fergus Falls, delivered a rattling ad dress, pouring hot shot into the ranks of monopoly, and was cheered to the echo. 1). W. Lawler, of St. Paul, was a large favorite and held un divided attention for half an hour, punctuated by the liveliest expressions of approval. C. A. Gal lagher closed the exercises at this point, and the raking down he gave John F. Finerty and Patrick Ford, would have chilled the marrow of the bones of these gentlemen. STAND NUMISER TWO was under the guardian care of Joseph Jepson, backed by the coopers' band. Gov. Daniel Buck "was the opening ora tor, and his tariff exposition was ad mirably put and enthusiastically re ceived. C. A. Gallagher made a spank ing speech, and kept the crowd in one furore of applause. Matt. Gallagher made a very plain and telling talk on the tariff, and Mr. Brown, of St. Paul, closed with a sound argument for low taxes. THE third stand was held oy Thomas J. Leftwich, who talked to an audience of workingmen in a way that thoroughly captivated them. Judge W. H. Donahue and other speak ers held close attention at this stand during the evening. The Scandi navian stand was in charge ot Peter Anderson, and was sur rounded by a large audience of Norwegians, Swedes and Danes. Luth. Jaeger was the principal speaker and delivered a telling address in the Nor wegian language. He was followed by F. S. N. Lartz, Louis Frederickson and other Scandinavian orators. It was at a late hour that the meeting broke up, and it was pronounced a thorough and gratifying success. Cheers for Cleve land, Wilson and Winston sounded over the ground as the crowd dispersed. POWDKRLEY'S POINTERS. He Would Exterminate Men of Hutchinson's Ilk. Philadelphia, Oct. 10.— General Master Workman Powderly, of the Knights of Labor, writing on the "Chi cago Wheat Corner"' in this week's Journal of United Labor, says: "Con gress is in session quarreling over the tariff bill to regulate the price of arti cles that come to our shores in ships, and Hutchinson is raisiug the price of that which is native to our soil, and which every workingman is most in need of, but no steps are taken by congress to put an end to Hutchinson and hisQmethods. Is there any remedy for this condition of affairs? Can we put an end to this sys tem of robbery without revolution? If there is a way it should be pointed out quickly, for men will not be turned out of work on the eve of winter and be told at the same time that their surplus of revenue is cut off —that the price of food has gone up. Human nature will not stand everything, and it should not be asked to. This is a good season to hunt bears. They are too plenty and have invaded the haunts of civilization. We must get rid of them. It will not do to place a boycott on wheat or sugar, but we can put an eternal boycott on men who gamble in these articles. Write to the president of the United States to send a message to congress demanding that these institutions that gamble in food be abolished; that trusts be abolished. Then write to your present congressman and senator at Washing ton and ask that they at once take no tice of this crying evil and legislate it out of existence. Go to those who are candidates far congress and exact pledges from them to abolish these in stitutions in case the present session does not do its duty. The present con gress has spent nearly a year in skirm ishing for points on which to carry the next election, while the interests of the people are going to the devil. It is time to put a stop to it and working men of the United States should speak out in thunder tones to them on the great issue. BARRY'S LATEST BLAST. The Saginawian Makes a Vicious Attack Upon Powdorly. New York, Oct. Thomas B. Barry, until recently a member of the executive board of the Knights of Labor, addressed a throne at Cooper Union to night. Referring to Mr. PowderJy he said: "We pay $16 a day to a man studying law and languages." Barry said he was sent down to Massa chusetts to help the strikers in Sa lem and Peabody, 2.200 in number, who were starving. At that time there was §137,000 in the general treasury. Barry begged for $10,000 to help the strikers, but could not get it until just before the Richmond convention. Then it was done to make votes for the administra tion. Mr. Barry directly charged Mr. Powderly with ordering the 25,000 pork packers of Chicago to go back to work after Barry had secured an agreement from the employers granting the demands of the men. The speaker said that Mr. Powderly was jealous of him and feared that if suc cessful, Barry would supplant him Mr. Barry said Knights of Labor had been discharged in the general offices at Philadelphia and their places filled by "scab" help, two of which were young and pretty girl, who sat around all day and read novels. During the last four years the board had spent $495,000. "How and for what, you do not know, nor dare ask," added the speaker. Mr. Barry said that while the head of the order had advocated tem perance, wine formed an important item in the year's bill. In conclusion the speaker said the labor movement of the last two years had been a miserable farce. The "order that two years ago had 702,000 members had but 200,000 in it now. -;v.->. v — ♦ ■ Call for a Convention.

IN DAVY JONES' LOCKER. Twenty French Fishermen Find Watery 'Graves Off the Banks. ANOTHER OCEAN HORROR. ANOTHER OCEAN HORROR. The Steamer Queen Runs Down and Sinks the Schooner Madeline. New York, Oct. 10.— The National Hue steamer Queen, which arrived to day from England collided with the fishing schooner Madelaine on the sth inst. The collision occurred at 3:50 a. m. Friday last, during a fog off the banks of New Foundland. The Queen struck the Madelaine amidships, cutting her in two and sinking her immediately. The captain, first and second mates, and Stewart of the fishing schooner were rescued after they had been in the water nearly an hour, but the rest of the crew, numbering twenty, were lost. The Madelaine was a French fishing schooner. The captain of the Made laine was seen on board the Queen soon after she was docked. He said that his vessel sailed from Granville eight months ago. They had a very good fishing season along the banks of Newfoundland, and the night before the collision had weighed anchor and set sail for Havre. They expected to arrive there in two months. A few minutes before 3 o'clock on the morning of last Thursday the Madelaine was headed east-northeast and was sail ing with a light breeze at the rate of three or four miles an hour. The weather was very foggy and they could only see a short distance ahead. "The first 1 knew about the steamer being near was seeing her lights," the captain continued. "The Queen seemed to be coming up at full speed. The NEXT MOMENT CAME THE C HASH. "I had not iime to give a single direc tion. The steamship's iron bow struck the Madelaine on the starboard side, directly amidships and cut her directly in two. Before we could lift a hand to get the boats the vessel had sunk. The next thing I knew was that I was strug gling in the water. Two boats were lowered from the Queen and I. was taken aboard. Twenty-one of the crew perished. They were asleep in their bunks at the time. Those on deck alone were saved. It was impossible for the Madelaine to have avoided the collision, as the steamer was going at - a great speed." The passengers 'on the Queen felt the shock and many rushed on deck. There was quite a panic at first, but Fourth Mate Taylor reassured the passengers by telling them that the steamer had only dropped her anchor. The Queen was not dam aged, more than her bow was dented and scraped. The shock brought the captain of the Queen, who had turned in, and the other officers and passengers hurrying on deck. Out of the three boats on the Queen, two were manned and lowered. The other was held in readiness. Only four "creatures could be seen on the surface. They were picked up by the boats. The rest of the schooner's crew SANK TO A WATERY GRAVE. Capt. Healy, of the Queen, said this afternoon; "I was not on deck at the time of the collision. But Second Officer Jackson, who was on the bridge at the time, says he saw a white light off the port bow of the Queen. He therefore supposed that it was a boat at anchor. His course would have taken him by her. The Queen was sailing west three, degrees north at the time of the col lision, the wind was southeast, and we were making ten knots an hour. Her usual rate is eleven knots an hour. It was slightly hazy at the time. The captain of" the Madelaine gave the wrong signal. He afterwards explained that he only wished to call attention to the fact that they were there, and did not intend to indicate the port or starboard side. The collision occurred in longitude 4*. de gree, 28 minutes, and latitude 4(> de grees, 1 minute. The French boat was cut right in two. I put the Queen back that the wreckage should not get in the blades of the propellor. All the men we saw were the captain and three sailors. A boat was lowered within six minutes. The passenger of the Queen felt the shock and many rushed on deck. At first there was quite a panic, but Fourth Mate Taylor reassured the pas sengers by telling them that the steam er has only dropped her anchor. WHICH WILL SHE CLING TO.

Ocker, eight years ago an anorney at the Atchison bar, and who has been thought to be dead since that time, is alive and well in Colorado enjoying a lucrative law practice under his right name. In the fall of ISSO Ocker dis appeared and his young wife was nearly crazed. Being penniless she could not institute a vigorous search for him. In January, 1881 the mangled remains of a man were found near the village of Monrovia, on the central branch of the Union Pacific and identified as those of Ocker. In due time the supposed widow was wooed and won by a well-to-do farmer of Nemaha county, whom she married and has borne several children.

THE EMPIRE STATE IS SAFE. Gov. Green Says the Newark Election Is a Fair Sample of Jersey Senti ment.' Special to the Globe. | ; New York, Oct. 10.— registration of yesterday in Mew York and Brooklyn exceeds all estimates, even those of the most sanguine Democrats. In a great Democratic stronghold the per cent of .gain must tell in favor of Democratic candidates, and the figures of yester day's list put beyond all question the success of the Democratic electoral ticket ih New York city by a plurality of not less than 60,000, and in Brooklyn by one of 15,000 or upward. In New York, as compared with 1884, the registration has increased by 21,300, or about 28 per cent of the number recorded in the first day's registration four years ago, which #as 74,777. The increase in the older : jjarts of the city is almost in a uni form., ratio, city is almost in down >rui ratio, and the gain in down >wn districtjmust be almost exclusively Democratic. In Brooklyn the gain for V>vo days is about equal to that in New iorK for one day, snowing that similar | causes are operating in both cities, and that the people are taking even greater ruterest in the presidential contest than any one has believed. Tak ing both cities together 214,000 votes are registered, as against 172/>OO the corresponding time four years ago. This means that' 42.000 more people have qualified themselves to vote in Cleve land's second election than were so qualified at this time in 1884. Of these 43,000 new votes, more than 27,000 are certainly Democratic, so that, assuming no Democratic gain in other localities of the state, the Cleveland electors will have a plurality of 15,000. That THE CHANGE OF SEETIMENT is not merely local' is proven by the elections at Newark yesterday, where the Democrats carried the city for the first time in twenty years in a munici pal contest preceding a presidential contest. The Republicans were con fident of winning, and relied greatly on the effect of their "free trade"Ties in a manufacturing constituency. Their failure is so marked that - Republican headquarters are in gloom in consequence of it. Robert - S. Green, of New Jersey, said to-day that the result was only the first »un from New Jersey of ' a cannonade that would be heard all over the state on the sixth day of November. National Democratic Committeeman Richardson, of lowa, speaking for himself and his colleagues,''*, said, while prudence would require them to relax no effort, the registration of yesterday in New York and the election in New Jer sey assured the national Democratic headquarters that both New York and New Jersey were safe beyond all doubt. The executive committee of the Demo cratic national committee held to-day the meeting which had been announced for to-morrow. A quorum of the com mittee was in town and it was deemed best to lose no time in consultation, so as to postpone the return of -the com mitteemen to their respective states.' The members present were: Hon. Wil liam H. Barniim, of Connecticut, chair man; S. P. Sherin, of Indiana, secre tary; Edward E. Dickenson, of New York, assistant secretary; John 11. Es tell, of Georgia; J. J. " Richardson, of Iowa; O. M. Barnes, of Michigan; Herman Oelrich of New York; Calvin S. Brice, of Ohio, chairman of the campaign committee; Samuel R. Hoyey, of Rhode Island; John S. Bar bour, of Virginia: John L. Witchell, of Wisconsin; William Dickson, of the District of Columbia; Dr. S. F. Neely, proxy for G. W.Blair, Kansas; Miles Ross, of New York, and Capt. William McClelland, secretary of the campaign committee, represent ing Congressman W. L. Scott: The work of the committee was confined to the. necessary reports of the condi tion of the canvass in the various states, the examination of expenditures and arrangements for raising the funds nec essary to complete the work of the campaign. This is no light task in view of the expendi tures at Republican headquarters. The management of the affairs of the campaign committee by Col. Brice and his assistants was highly complimented by Chairman Barniim and his col leagues. Secretary Sheerin, of the national committee, returned to Indiana to-night, and before leaving, expressed his confidence that the state was SURE FOR CLEVELAND, Thurman and Matson. He also took occasion to correct the misrepresenta tions current about an agreement be tween parties to prevent frauds in In diana. He said such an agreement had been tendered formally by the Demo cratic committee, and absolutely de clined by the Republicans, who must bear the odium of having refused to enter into a fair arrangement to secure a fair election. John J. O'Brien, the Republican leader in the j Eighth district, bitterly denounced the interference of the Republican national headquarters with local politics, and is especially severe on the pretended anxi ety of Chairman Quay to supervise the elections in his own district, the Eighth. Mr. O'Brien says, with emphasis, that New Yorkers are able to manage their own elections, and others had better mind their own business. J. B. P. m^ He Will Help Democracy. Special to the Globe.

HORROR UPON HORROR Frightful Accident on the Lehigh Valley Railroad Near Perm Haven. Eighty Persons Killed Out right and as Many More Seriously Injured. A Grand Stand at Quincy, 111., Collapses With Fatal Effect. Five Hundred Persons Maimed and Bruised, Many of Whom Will Die. Special to the Globe. Pottsville, Pa.. Oct. News reaches here of a terrible catastrophe on the Lehigh Valley road, in which seventy-five persons were killed and a -number injured. The accident took place late to-night near Mud Run Sta tion. A grand parade of Catholic so cieties took place at Hazeltou to day and a large excursion was run from Wilkesbarre for the occa sion, composed of lodges, bands and sight-seers from Wilkesbarre, Nanti coke and other points along the line. The excursion train was run in two sections and upon the return trip to night the rear section ran into the for ward section at Mud Bun about 9 o'clock with disastrous results. Several cars of the forward section were telescoped and nearly EIGHTY PERSONS WERE KILLED outright and about an equal number in jured, many of them probably fatally. The late hour at which the accident oc curred, the remote and isolated loca tion of the scene and the reticence of the railroad people combine to render the obtainment of details extremely difficult. It is impossible to ascer tain the names or residences of any of the victims, but their number is stated above with approximate accuracy. The rumor of a terrible accident near Perm Haven is confirmed. The fifth division of the Father Mathew excur sion returning from Hazleton was wrecked and the cars piled in a shape less mass, one being stood upon end. All the cars were crowded, and the fa talities ' , . .',.< -,..;-.. . ' WILL BUN INTO AWFUL FIGURES All the physicians from White Haven and near-by points are at -the. wreck, as also all Lehigh Valley officials from this city. The number killed is variously reported from twenty-five to eighty per sons. The only information is from passengers on the Central railroad trains, who report a most horrible condition of affairs, the groans of the wounded being heard across the river where the tracks of the Central run. At the depot here hun dreds of people are gathered on the platform, many weeping for the safety of their friends supposed to be on the wrecked train. Nothing further than this is known here. EIGHTY KILLED OUTRIGHT. The Most Awful Disaster That Ever Happened in the State. Wilkesbarke, Pa., Oct. 10.— ac cident on the Lehigh Valley road at Mud Run, near Perm Haven, is beyond all question the most awful disas ter that ever happened in this portion of the state. Though no .details can be learned,, there is no doubt that the number of killed will reach nearly eighty, and the injured nearly double that number. The trains were excursion trains re turning from the celebration at Hazel ton, the annual parade of the Catholic temperance societies of the Scranton diocese. THOUSANDS OP PEOPLE went down to Hazleton from the towns of Luzerne and Lackawanna counties. Seven trains, with the cars filled to the doors, passed "through White Haven this morning, taking the old route by Perm Haven. On the return the first train left Hazleton- about 5 p. m., the others following as rapidly as deemed safe. " The first three sections came through with out accident, the disaster happening to the fourth and fifth sections. For some reason not explained, the fourth section was standing on the track near the little station of Mud Run, five miles below White Haven, when the fifth section SHOT around a CURVE close behind, and crashed into it. The cars were smashed and broken and hurled off the track. The road lies close beside the Lehigh river, a steep embankment sixty feet high run ning down to the water. Several of the cars rolled down this and others were crushed- against the cutting on the other side. Up to this writing (12:30 a. m.) no direct communication has been established with the scene of the disas ter, and the railroad officials here, if they know anything, absolutely REFUSE TO GIVE ANY INFORMATION. 'At 1 o'clock this morning reports about the accident are 'still very con flicting. It is known, however, from dispatches received at the depot that the accident is quite as bad as at first reported and that at least eighty or more are killed. Nothing offi cial can be obtained at the company's office, which is closed to reporters and all others. One train has been started from the wreck and it is expected to ar rive here about 4 o'clock, this morning. Most of the injured are said to be from Scranton and Lackawanna county.

The first train left Hazleton to return about 5 p. m., the others following as fast at possible. The first three sections got through all right, but the fifth section crashed into the fourth, which for some unexplained reason was standing on the track the report of the accident created the wildest alarm and terror in this city, for the fourth section con tained most of the Wiikesbarreans who had gone down. All the cars were crowded. All physicians from White Haven and near-by points are at the wreck, as are also all Lehigh Valley officials from this city. Several cars of the forward section were telescoped* Last reports place the NUMBER OP KILLED AT EIGHTY. and the number of injured over 150. There is not a worse spot on the line for such an accident. The track there runs close beside the Lehigh river, a steep embank* ment, sixty to seventy feet high* running down from the ti acks to the ; river. The tracks of the Central Rail* road of New Jersey run along the op* posite side of the river, and the pas sengers on the train that reached here at 10 o'clock had a distinct view of the awful scene by the light of glimmering lamps and torches. They say that the cars were smashed to pieces and hurled from the tracks, and that several had rolled part of the way down the steep embankment and others were standing right across the track. Arrangements have been, made to ad mit twenty-five injured to Wilkesbarre hospital. It is impossible to get de tails until the first section of the train comes, which will not be until 3 or 3:30* The train is carrying the wounded. MANY WIL.L DIE. Five Hundred Persons Injured by the Collapse of a Grand Stand. Quincy, 111., Oct. 10.— Five hundred people were injured, half of them seri ously, to-night, by the collapse of the amphitheater erected to assist in the big annual celebration of Quincy. A seating capacity of , 5,000 had been provided for those wishing to wit ness the pyrotechnic display. At 8 o'clock when the first rocket was fired the supports at the west end gave way, and the entire structure, 600 feet long, wavered and fell to the ground, carrying with it its mass of living freight. The night was very dark and through it all arose the groans and cries of the imprisoned muv titude. Those who had presence of mind at once set abaut extricating those who were secured by the debris, and stretchers were procured as quickly as possible and the wounded conveyed from the scene to the adjacent houses, which were changed into impromptu hospitals. As far as could be learned there were not less than 500 injured, and half that number received serious wounds. The only fatal injury report ed to-night was that of Albert VV. Wells, an attorney of this city and a candidate for the legislature. No hope is entertained of his recovery. The ex citement was so great all night that the streets remained crowded. Newspaper offices were besiegeu by anxious peo ple who sought the names of friends or relatives who might have been injured. There is no doubt that a number of those injured will die. Among those seriously wounded are J. VV. Stewart, secretary and treasurer of the Comstock Castle Stove works, very serious internal injuries. Dr. Albbert G. Schmidt and wife, legs of both broken. Miss May Marks, legs broken; Fred Greed and wife, both have legs broken; Miss Georgie Berry, back injured and ankle dislocatad; Mrs. Laura Herring, injured internally; Mrs. Jacob Both, of Quincy, both legs broken; Mrs. Gris wold, internally injured. Charles Col burn and family, all seriously injured. Miss Vandebon, Loth legs broken. C M. Devey, superintendent St. Louis, Keokuk & Northwestern railroad, badly injured. ' NO LONGER NEUTRAL. Ignatius Donnelly Offers to Take the Stump for Hantaan. Special to the Globe. Bkainerd, Minn., Oct. 10.— Quite a breeze was raised here to-day as to the party attitude of Ignatius Donnelly, it having been held that he was neutral or between the two state tickets. "But the local Republican committee to-day received an offer of Mr.Donnelly to make a speech here for Merriam some date next week, which was accepted with alacrity, and a tremendous meet ing is to be worked up. The announce ment creates no small amount of agita tion among the labor vote, which is especially aimed at, and which, as yet, does not give full credence to this re ported step. The labor vote bid fair up to this time to divide on all candidates, but this movement, if confirmed, will only return the mass of it to the old par ties, as it existed originally. - Remarkable for Its Weakness. Special to the Globe. Grand Forks, Dak., Oct. 10.— After wrangling all night and till 6:45 this morning the Republican county conven tion completed the nomination of a ticket as follows: For council, George B. Winship; house of representatives, Charles B. Baldwin, of Chester, and R. L. Bennett, of Strabane; auditor, W. J. Anderson treasurer. Abe Abrahamson; sheriff, Thco Hoi ton; district attorney, John M.
