men at the Kansas City
Four employes were seriously injured
end seven others scalded and hurt by
the explosion of the boiler of Locomo
tive No. 84, at the Kansas City line shops
The extensive plant of the railway
company is located at South lark,
where a startling noise excited the peo
ple at 2:30 o'clock. Hundreds of men
gathered around the wreck, and many
willing hands helped to remove the
6calded sufferers to the adjacent buiM
The locomotive had been steamed up
by Engineer John May and Fireman J.
Slavin, and it had run from the machine
Eiiop, where it had just been repaired,
to the transfer track at the corner of
the machine shop and near the main
line of the railroad. It was generally
believed that it had about 130 to 140
pounds of steam on. The explosion
made a rent in the rieht hand side of
the fire box two feet long and six inches
wide, exposing tiie flues to view
and lifting the massive engine
fully a foot into the air.
The force also sent the
engine about half a length forward,
broke off the thick axle of the first right
hand side driving wheel, and when the
Bpectators reached the wreck the huge
machine was found with all the wheels
on the ties except those of the forward
trucks. It was a distressing spectacle
to see the strong men lying there writh
ing with pain, some unconscious, and it
looked at first as thouirh several must
surely die. The names of the Injured

Dr. Perry 11. Millard, surgeon of the
Kansas City line, arrived from St. Paul
Bt a quarter past three in the afternoon.
He found five victims on improvised
beds in the boiler room, three in the
office of Master Mechanic Reed, two at
the Grand hotel, and others
at their homes in South Park.
The doctor applied himself at once
to relieving the sufferers, and five of
the number were taken on stretchers to
a baggage car, which was brought to the
scene by a special engine, ;uid were re
moved to St. Joseph's hospital. Their
names are .John Clancy, John May,
Martin McGrail, William Davidson and
D. A. Field. They we're met at the
union depot and conveyed carefully to
the hospital in two patrol wagons and
two express wagons. Assistant Surgeou
Lewis, of the West side, also went to
South Park and looked after the pa
Dr. Miller, of St. Joseph's hospital,
and Assistant City Physician Green
eaid at a late hour last night that the
Bufferers at the hospital were doing
well in view of their injuries. J. Clan
cey was resting nicely, and when awake
was conscious and rational. David a.
Field went to his home iast evening,
and Dr. Miller expected that William
Davidson would be able to go
home to-day. Dr. Millard was
seen late last evening and expressed the
opinion that aIJ would recover and that
Borne of them would be at work again
in three of four days.
All of the men were busy in their re
spective positions at the time of the ex
filosion. Charlie Newman was stand
ng on top of the engine setting the
props on top of the drum when the
shock came thut landed him
on the ground. He was un
conscious for a time, but escaped
without serious injury, and when he
opened his eyes he wanted to know
what had happened. The headlight rim
of the locomotive was blown over the
wood-working department almost to the
?aint shop— about a hundred yards,
'he side and throat sheets wen: torn
loose, and the crown sheet went
thirty yards to the brick wall
of ihe wood shop. The coal
shovel flew from the cab to the
roof of the machine shop aud pieces of
iron— one weighing about 100 pounds —
Shot thr ugh the glass of the doors into
where the carpenters had just been
busy. The ash pan and grate bars lay
broken into pieces under the trucks.
Various causes for the accident were
suggested last evening:, but no satisfac
tory conclusion was arrived at. It will
be the subject of a careful investiga
MAY LET HANDY OUT.
World's Fair Press Department
Ciiicaco, Oct. 14.— The congressional
loan of $5,000,000 to the world's fair,
Maj. Handy and his department of pub
licity and promotion, and Director Gen
eral Davis' report were considered by
the board of control of the national
commission, which went into session
for its October meeting to-day. At the
same time the Chicago directors were
holding a session of their executive
committee and struggling with practi
cally the same subjects. Each body
met behind closed doors, and to say
that both meetings were . lively would
be a mild way of putting it. Another
conflict between the commission and di
rectory appears to be on.
Some time during the session of the
directors a request was sent to the bo''-^
of control tor a special joint c^ig^'j^
DAILY ST. PAUL GLOBE
of the board of reference and control to
be held Friday. The conference is
called, it is said, to consider the advisi
bility of abolishing the entire depart
ment of publicity and promotion of
which Maj. Handy is chief. The sig
nificance of this move is explained on
the basis that Maj. Handy draws $7,500
a year from the directory mid has a
large stair of assistants. President
Baker, Director Walker and others
seemingly have an idea that the world's
lair does not need a press department
any longer, and that the department
chiefs can furnish all needful informa
tion to exhibitors and the newspapers.
GOOD GOLD GOES.
Secretary Foster. Will Bluff Out
Washington, Oct. 14.— At the re
quest of certain friends in Boston Sec
retary Foster wrote a letter on finance
iv which lie stated that the treasury
notes were redeemable in sold. Demo
crats in Boston presented a 510,000
treasury note at the subtrcasury and
demanded gold for it. It was refused
by the assistant treasurer. Democratic
newspapers published the fact of the
refusal side by side with Secretary Fos
ter's published utterances. Secretary
Foster, after sending a dispatch this
morning, sent the following telegram:
Washington, Oct. 14.— Hon. C. Lodge, Bos
ton. Mass. : Treasury notes will be redeemed
many subtreasury of the United States In
gold coin. The refusal at Boston was an er
ror on the part of the ast-muni treasurer, It
being probably the Bret time in Boston where
redemption in gold was asked. There is no
authority of existing law to redeem any
paper money in gold or silver bullion, but the
government purchased nearly a million
ounces of silver to-day with the treasury
notes at about 97 cents au ounce, and any
owner of treasury notes can dp the came.
The director of the mint tenders his kind of
fices unofficially to the chairman of the Dem
ocratic committee in Boston, with an offer to
purchase for him I,O JO ounces of silver bull
ion, to be paid for iv treasury notes.

Washington, Oct. 14. — Frederick
Douglass delivered a lecture on Hayti
last night and replied with feeling to
the cciticisms of his policy in the Mole
St. Nicholas ' affair. He made the
suggestive announcement that if
he had done any man an n justice
in his story of the matter he stood
ready to retract, but it driven to the
wall, he said, he had it in his power to
put before the whole world all the cor
respondence about the affair in a differ
ent light, and a light some gentlemen
would not like to see. He described
the Mole as the Gibraltar of .the Carib
bean sea, and said that the nation that
could hold this stronghold would be
mistress of the sea. Tremendous
cheers followed the announcement by
Mr. Douglass that he was for Harrison
for the next term.

Tramp Cattlo Steamer Goes to
Pieces on the Hanks.
St. Johns, N. F., Oct. 13.— The City
of Koine, a tramp cattle steamship, was
wrecked Monday night at Marine cove,
St. Mary's bay, four miles from Cape
Pine, and eighty-five miles in a
direct line southwest of St. Johns.
The nearest point of importance is
Trepassy, which is at the head of
the bay running in between Capes Race
and Pine, and about twenty miles from
where the City of Rome is said to be
lost. The place indicated lias been the
scene of many shipwrecks. All hands
were lost when the vessel went to pieces
except one man, John Brennan, belong
ing to Sligo, Ireland, who arrived at
Trepassy this morning from Peters'
River. He says he is the only survivor
of a crew of forty-three men on the
City of Rome, which became a total
wreck Monday night at Marine Cove, St.
Mary's bay. "lie says that the captain,
crew ana officers were all drunk and un
able to save themselves. lie was thrown
upon the cliff and was rescued Tuesday
morning. The City of Rome had on
board 575 head of cattle, a quantity of
flour in sacks and Indian corn. The
man tells a most pitiful tale about the
struggle the crew had among the bul
locks trying to save themselves. The
steamer was commanded byCapt. Nelly,
and left Montreal Oct. 7 bound for
Montreal, Oct. 14.— The vessel
wrecked off the banks is a cattle steamer
sailing from this port. Forty-two per
sons were drowned.
NEW York, Oct. When the dis
patches from St. John gave the meager
statement that the City of Rome had
foundered, it was immediately believed
that the ocean racer which left here
Saturday last had been caught in
unusually strong hurricanes, and
had either run ashore . or Rone down
with passengers and. crew. The excite
ment was intense throughout this city
and Brooklyn. Those who entertained
fears as to her safety were greatly re
lieved about an hour later when a pri
vate dispatch from St. John's stated defi
nitely that it was not the well-known
City of Rome, but a tramp steamer of
the same name. A private cable from
St. John's put the matter at rest so far as
the Anchor liner was concerned. The
cable stated that the vessel ashore on
St. Chotts was a cattle steamer from
Montreal. It was a tramp steamship
having no register at Lloyd's, but was
named the City of Rome.

An Indiana Official and His Pals
.- *. in Jail.
" Washington, Ind., • Oct. . This
city has witnessed the -' most exciting
scenes in Its history this ■ morning and
to-day. Detectives hav<» been ': at work
for a week oh the court house fire, and
have arrested four persons enclosed to
be connected with the fire. Samuel
Harbine, a day laborer living here, was
arrested hist night, charged with com
plicity in the burning of the records.
After beinsr arrested, Harbine confessed
the crime and implicated several prom
inent people. As a result, Auditor
James C. Lavelle, A. 13. Hawes, a prom
inent citizen of Steele township, and
Basil Ledgerwnod were arrested this
morning and placed iv jail. The offi
cers are now out after Miciiael Lavelie,
a brother of the auditor.
ilarbine's story is that Lavelle hired
him to burn the court house for $i,OX),
only $5 of which has been paid. It is
reported that Ledgerwood j s also anx
ious to turn state's evidence. He claims
to have been given a hous*e and lot for
his part in the crime. Auditor Lavelle's
bondsmen, becoming frightened at tiie
turn affairs were taking, required him
to turn all bis property over to them
yesterday. Lavella has been auditor of
the county for eight years, and the fact
that people had confidence in him
makes his arrest and accusation of the
court house fire the sensation of the
hour. Prom present circumstances itiU
supposed he is short in his accounts,
but no one knows the amount. Experts
are now at work on his books.
Hawes lives on a farm of 590 acres,
owned by his wife, and is in good cir
cumstances. He is a desperate char
acter, and was brought in this morning
at the muzzle of a Winchester. The
city is full of people from the. country,
and business is practically suspended.
Hawes and Lavelle were taken before a
magistrate this morning. They waived
a preliminary hearing:, and bail was
fixed at 15,000 each. They are still in
jail, not having given bond. Ledger
wood and Harbine pleaded guilty in
court. Sentence has been suspended,
as they will be used as witnesses.

choice of either having her throat cut
or to have her ears cut off. •■■ She,' not
being able to help herself, chose the j
latter, whereupon the hardened scoun

MRS. ORD WAY'S YARX. '
.Interested Parties in Chicago
Take Xo Stock in It. *
Chicago, Oct. 14.— A. 'J. Stone, son
in-law of the murdered millionaire, A.
J. Suell, has this to say in regard to the
story from Baltimore of Mrs. Ordway to
the effect that her late husband was
concerned in the murder, and , that W.
B. Tascott, the supposed murderer, was
strangled to death by his pals:
"This is the first time that the name
of Al Ordway has been mentioned in
connection with the case. 1 knew him
quite well, and was surprised: when 1
learned of his death. 1 used to have
my clothes made at his father's shop
on Madison street, and the worst thing
I ever heard of him was that he was
addicted to drink. Perhaps if 1 knew
something of the woman's character and :
reputation for veracity 1 might consider \
the matter. But as the story now stands,*
unsubstantiated, 1 would say it is false :
and without foundation." i
Ira J. Ordway, father of Albert X.,
furnishes the following for publication:'
"The statement of a Mrs. A. K. Ord-. :
way, who was taken to the Bayview
asylum yesterday, is my first intima
tion that my son. Albert K. Ordway, ? .
who died in Baltimore last March, had
any connection with the Snell murder."
The statement has no weight with me, !
nor will it be credited by those who are
in a position to know the facts," whether
the woman who makes them be sane or
This the first association of the name
of young Ordway with the murder and
the story is generally discredited: Ord
way was associated with his father in
the tailoring business in this city at one
time and the firm made Tascott's
clothes, but it does not appear that Ord
way ever had oilier than business rela
tions with the.supposed murderer. The
woman who tells the story was a Mrs.
Beachrnan and was married to young
Ordway, after the latter was divorced
from his wife. His death in Baltimore
in March last is supposed to have been
a case of suicide.

England, Ireland and Scot
land Ravaged by Gales of
Many Ships Believed to Be
Buried and Their Crew 3
Immense Destruction of Land
Property, Shipping- and
Scores of Lives Probably Lost
Along; the Atlantic
S l.oxrox, Oct. 14.— The furious gale
which has been raging all over England,
Ireland and ihe south of Scotland for
over twenty-four hours, and which has
already caused a vast amount of damage
about the seaside towns and wrecked a
large number of vessels, continues to
day in all its intensity. In the cities
and large towns chimneys and tiles
were carried everywhere from the roofs
of private dwellings, outhouses of wood
crashed down as If built of cards, pedes
trianism was, during the height of the
storm, utterly impossible, and traffic by
rail, road or water was" almost brought
to a standstill.
At Folkstone, one of the great land
ing places for the trans-channel seam
era, throughout the night the sea swept
the great pier with immense waves,
carrying away all the lighter por
tions of the structure and threaten
ing to wrench away its most powerful
supports. The light house at its ex
tremity was deluged by the angry
waters, and it was even feared I hat it
might be swept from his foundations.
The channel passeutrer boats were un
able to cross last night, and to those
who know the weather these vessels
venture out in, this gives some iciea of
the severity of the storm which pre
To-day the storm is raging very heav
ily and is still doins; much damage. At
Helensburg, a watering place on the
Firth of Clyde, the fishing and other
boats which had been drawn high up
on the beach at the first approach of the
gale, were canied along by the furious
waves, which poured into the streets,
flooding the nouses and driving the in
mates from their homes, many escap
ing through the windows, so little
warning was given of the inundation.
Traveler* in Peril.
Two passenger trains running be
tween Glasgow and Helensburg were
brought to a standstill, to the intense
alarm of the passengers, hy the waves,
which washed over and threatened to
demolish the tracks. The fires of the
locomotives were extinguished, tnus
completely stranding the trains and
placing the lives of the passengers in
peril. Escape from the cars was im
possible and all attempts made up to
the present to reach the travellers have
. irom all sections come reports of
damage done and lives endangered.
The country roads are strewn with and
blocked by fallen trees, twisted tele
graph wires and broken telegraph poles.
It is impossible as yet to give even an
approximate idea of the damage done
on laud and sea, or of the lives lost.
Instances of the furious work of the
gale are constantly being recorded.
Not within recent memory has such a
r terrific storm raged in England, and a
terrible catalogue of disaster at sea is
to be expected.
Of recent years, by the expenditure of
immense sums of -.money, Dover has
been made a "harbor of refuge," long,
powerfully built jetties having been
thrown out seaward, and a huge granite
pier, called the Admiralty pier, one
third of. a mile long, which is still un
completed, however, having been built.
At the commencement of the storm the
pier and jetties were continually washed
by the waves, but now the pounding the
Admiralty pier has received has been so
severe that considerable damage has
been done to It, huge granite blocks of
several tons weight being washed out of
place in spite of the iron work and ce
ment which held them.
Great Works Destroyed.
The costly pier extension works,
which took three years to build, have
been almost completely destroyed, little
more than the bare foundations remain
ing. Even the oldest of the veteran sea
men of that place are forced to admit
that they do not remember having seen
■worse weather or heavier seas off the
coast of England.
The greatest danger is experienced
by pedestrians Who are compelled to
pass through the streets of Dover.owing
to falling tiles, slates and bricks from
chimneys which have been toppled over
by the howling wind. As it is, a num

SCORES PERISH AT SEA.
The Atlantic Coast the Scene of
New Yohk, Oct. 14.— Waves nearly
thirty feet high are lashing Rockaway
beach, plowing far into the sand and
washing dwellings and boats out to
sea. Many pleasure craft have been
missing since Sunday, and it is feared
that they have been lost with all on
board, Sunday afternoon George White,
Alfred Kane. Mark Thursbu and Alden
Little, of New York, hired two stout
boats, and went equipped for shark
fishing. Shortly after they put out a
northeaster began blowing. With the
aid of a glass, boatmen could see the
small boats being rapidly blown out to
sea. It was only a short time when the
waves on the bay rose to eight and
ten feet in height. Then darkness fell
and no more could be seen. It was out
of the question to launch a boat iv such
a sea. Monday morning the sea was
angrier still. Hieher and higher the
waves roae and the rainfall increased.
The bny was a mass of wreckage. Boats
could be seen on the crests of the waves,
but no living being was visible. Un
mindful of the iain, the inhabitants of
the beach lined the shores as near the
water's edge as was safe aud strained
their eyes for result* of the awful
storm. The wind increased in velocity
until it drove all within the shelter of
their oVn houses. Sheds were blown
over aud carried within reach .of the
waves and broken to pieces.
feAt 3:30 Iv the afternoon, Mike Ketch
urn, a colored man, saw a small boat
dashing against the beach and went for
it. The wind was blowing at a 52-kuot
pace, and almost tarried him from
his feet. Reaching the shore
after a hard fight with the ele
ments, he found it was one of the
two boats let out Sunday to the four
young men from New York. In it he
found a hat, v broken oar, a gun, and
attached to a line fastened to the boat
was a young shark, about four feet
long. Of tiie other boat nothing has

washed over the deck and flooded the
. hold. The three young men with him
were swept off the deck while trying to
take in the sail. Jhe old man clung to
a mast and was saved. Sunday after
noon, Charles P. Frey let out a cat boat
and six small boats at Holland's station,
up the beach. The cat boat carried a
fishing party of live men and the small
boats eleven men. They went up the
bay towards the inlet. Nothing has
been seen of them since. It is thought

they were too far down to be washed up
on the meadow lands.

New Yokk, Oct. 14.— The Democracy
of Kings county turned out in force this
evening to aid in tiring the first big
Democratic gun in the present state
campaign in this pivotal county of
Kings. Clennont rink was crowded.
When Grover Cleveland entered the
audience simply went wild. Cheer after
cheer arose until a full two minutes had
John R. Adams, in introducing ex-
President Cleveland, delivered himself
of an eulogistic speech, during the
course of which he was interrupted by
wild applause. When Mr. Cleveland
arose to speak he was greeted with
"Three cheers for our next president.'
After acknowledging the greeting, the
ex-president spoke as follows:
My extreme Interest in the state cam
paign now pending arises from a con
ception of its importance which Ido
not believe Is at all exaggerated. The
fact that it immediately precedes a na
tional campaign, in which the vote of
New York may be a controlling factor,
is of itself sufficient to enlist the activ
ity of every man entitled to claim a
place In Democratic councils. Besides
this the faihue on tiie part of the Dem
ocracy of the state to further emphasize
its support of the reforms to which the
national Democracy is pledged, we
must all confess, would be a party hu
miliation. There are. however, rea
sons beyond these, which are close at
home and have relation to state inter
ests, quite sufficient to arouse supreme
Democratic efforts. There are
Duiigerit Clearly Imminent
and schemes almost unconcealed which
affect our state and which can only be
avoided and defeated by the strong and
determined protestor" the united Democ
racy of New York. ■ •*
The party we oppose, resting upon no
fundamental principle. sustaining a
precarious existence upon distorted
sentiment, and depending for success
upon the varying currents of selfish In
terests and - popular minconception,
cannot endure the sight of a community
which is inclined to withstand its bland
ishments and which refuses to be led
away by its misrepresentations. Thus,
in its national management and meth
ods, it boldly seeks - to thwart the inten
tion of voters. if they are Democratic,
and to stifle the voice of the people it
they speak in Democratic tones. .
I am sure it Is not necessary to remind
you in proof of this of the latest effort
of our opponents at Washington in this
direction, nor to speak of the Demo
cratic congratulation which spread
throughout the land when by the defeat
of the force bill our boasted American
freedom of suffrage was saved and con
stitutional rights preserved through the
combined efforts of a Democratic sena
torial minority splendidly led and
Is there a Democrat— nay, is there
any man— so dull as to suppose that the
Republican party in this state is not of
the same disposition as the party in the
nation? Do not the attitude and con
duct of Its representatives from this
state in national affairs abundantly
prove that the party In New York can
be implicitly trusted to aid any scheme
of this sort that promises partisan ad
If further proof is desired that Xew
York Republicans are thoroughly im
bued with the ptocivilities that charac
terize tbe party In national affairs, it is
readily found. Under the positive re
quirements of our state constitution an
enumeration of the inhabitants of tiie
state should have been made in isyr>,
and the senatorial and assembly dis
tricts newly adjusted in accordance
with such an enumeration. This has
not yet been done, though our oppo
nents have had a majority in both
branches of the legislature ever since
that year, except in the last session a
a Democratic majority appeared in the
A Republican reafon for the neglect
of a plain duty in the matter of this
enumeration is found in the fact that
under such a new arrangement locali
ties which have increased in popula
tion, and at the same time in Demo
cratic voters, would be entitled to a
larger representation in the legislature
than they now have, while the existing
adjustment is a very comfortable one
from a Republican standpoint. In the
present condition, it is calculated that a
Democratic majority in the state must
reach at least 50.000 in order to give us
a majority in the assembly.
Mr. Cleveland at this point intro
duced the figures from ]«% down to
prove his statement, continuing thus:
There is no reason to hope for a bet
ter and more just representation of the
political sentiments of the people of the
state except through a complete dis
lodgment of those who have so long
profited by this injustice. Its continu
ance is directly involved in the present
campaign, for not only a governor but a
new senate and assembly are to be
elected. No election will soon occur
that will afford so good an opportunity
to secure to our party the share in state
legislation to which it is entitled, nor
will the Democratic party soon have so
good a chance to rectify
