Wabasha, Minn., Nov. 23. -The reg
ular train on the narrow gauge division
of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul
railway, running between Wabasha
and Zumbrota, was wrecked about five
miles below here this forenoon about
8::lO. The train consisted of two stock
cars loaded with cattle and hogs, two
freight cars, baggage and passenger
cars. A wheel broke on one of the
freight cars and the train ran off the
track dragging the engine off with the
rest. The freight and stock cars w.ent
to the footot a steep embankment of
over twenty feet. The engine lies by
the side of the track with the baggage
car wrecked on it. The passenger coach
Is hanging over the side of the em
bankment in a badly demolished con
dition. Not enough of the box cars re
mains to be recognized as such.
The three passengers were Rev.
Dykeman, Mr. Blair, of Winona, and
Miss Bell Robertson, of this place.
Only the last named was injured, the
gentlemen having escaped without a
scratch. Miss Robertson was badly
bruised about the head and body, but
her injuries are more painful than
serious. She fainted before the car
turned over, and it is thought that she
bad started for the door in her fright
and was thrown heavily to the floor by
the turning over of the car. Her story
is that she remembers nothing from the
time of her first intimation of danger
until consciousness was restored after
sue was removed from the car.
Id ilie baggage car were several sec
tion men and regular employes. T. J.
Ponoellet, of this place, was the only
one injured to any extent. His right
arm and side are bruised quite badly,
and he will be unable to return to work
Cor a week or more. The engineer and
fireman, by a miracle, escaped injury.
Had the engine rolled but a few feet
further both would have been killed.
Of the stock four hogs were killed, and
some cattle slightly hurt. The train
was manned by a special crew, the reg
ulars having remained in Wabasha last
night and intending; to meet at Zuinbro
Falls this morning. Altogether, it was
a very fortunate wreck, considering the
dangerous cut in which it occurred and
the present position of the cars. No
blame whatever is attached to the com
pany or the men running the train.
THE ST. HENRY TRAGEDY.
Coroner Landenberger Will Not
Hold an Inquest.
gpecinl to the Globe.
Lb Sueub, Minn., Nov. 26.— Coroner
Landenberger, who was summoned to
the scene of the St. Henry tragedy, ar
rived there yesterday, and, after in
vestigating the facts, decided that an
inquest was not necessary, and allowed
the interment of the remains of Miss
Acnes Bhear to proceed. At the house
of Joseph Huonder he procured the to^
bacco which was found in the Docket of
the deceased, which he took with him
lor chemical examination. A careful
examination of the piece by him at the
time reveals the fact that some kind of
while powder had been introduced into
it by means of a needle or some
thing else, and it is this
which undoubtedly caused his
death. It seems that Huonder had
been complaining for several days that
his tobacco tasted badly, and one of his
men who had taken a chew of it had
been unable to chew it, and had thrown
it away. Hounder had been in the
habit oi leaving his tobacco around
wherever he laid his coat, and, as Miss
jihear had been at the house frequent
ly, it is sure that she had ample oppor
tunity to place the poison in it. The
coroner also tookp.jssession of the let
ter written by the young woman to her
sister, Houiider's wife. In that, as
.stated in the Globe already, she said
that hlie desired to be buried with Joe,
and stated what dress she should be
buried in and who of her acquaintances
should be her pall-bearers, bhe said she
was growing poorer every day, and no
one seemed to love her. While tlie
wreath was being made for Houiider's
coffin, she said: "Tomorrow night you
will be making one for me." When re
proved lor talking so she said: "Well,
lam going to die." Her deatti came so
suddenly after she reached home that
no aid could be given her.
FOR KXUTE NELSON.
Low Tariff Republicans for the
Little Norwegian.
Special to the Globe.
Albeet Lea, Minn., Nov. 20.— 1n an
interview today Senator H. C. Nelson
expressed doubts of Senator Davis' re
election. He said: "There are several
Fopulist senators who would vote for a
low-tariff Republican to defeat Davis.
Gov. Merriam has friends among the
senators who would support him in pref
erence to Davis on account of Merriatn's
low tariff views. Knute Nelson, I think,
•will be pretty sure to be elected if he
consents to be a candidate, and why not
send hint up higher if he wants to
«dV Better have him for senator
ian governor, and 1 don't think
that he would vote to bankrupt
the United Stales treasury for the sake
of keeping up monopoly high tariff. 1
think the Populists will be united in
opposition to Davis on account of his
extreme high tariff and subsidy record,
and because he is believed to be too
closely connected with some of the cor
porations which are taking unjust ad
vantage of the people. 1 see the Re
publican papers are again claiming that
the People's party is dead. If it is dead,
then there will be a great many more

Madison, Nov. 2G. — About four
mouths ago a yonn? man by the name
of Christiansen, a painter and decorator,

Noktiifiki.d, Minn., Nov. 2C—Al
though clouds have seriously hindered
observations at Goodsell observatory, yet
what Prof. Payne and Dr. Wilson have
seen of the comet has convinced them
that it is not Biela's. Dr. Wilson lias
watched the comet ever since its recent
discovery and from its appearance and
the position of its orbit, thinics that is a
new one, or a comet whose orbit has
changed. He thinks there will be a
collision by the earth and comet, yet
the earth may pass through the tail of

New York. Nov. 2(s.— An important
conference of Democratic leaders, it is
expected, will be held in this city on
Monday or Tuesday of uext week, at
which the question of an extra session
of congress after the inauguration of
Mr. Cleveland will be discussed.
Among others who are expected to be
present at the conference are Speaker
Crisp, Senators Carlisle, Gorman and
Brice, Hon. Don M. Dickinson, Hon.
W. C. Whitney and other local Demo
cratic leaders, including represent
atives ot congress from this city.
Some of the leading Democratic
bankers and business men of the city
may also be asked to express their
views on the subject of an extra ses
sion of congress. Some of the leaders
who will be present at the conference,
it is understood, will oppose an extra
session of congress and will urge the
appointment of a special committee by
the present house of representatives to
investigate the present tariff system
and prepare a bill for the Fifty-third
congress. The condition of the treas
ury will also be discussed in connection
with the extra bession question.
Black* Plan.
Washington. Nov. 26.— Ex-Lieut.
Gov. C. F. Black, of Pennsylvania,
president of the National Association
of Democratic clubs, who presided over
the quadrennial convention of these or
ganizations in New York, at which Mr.
Cleveland was present and made a
speech, is in the city and was one ot
the enthusiastic spectators of tne Dem
ocratic parade last night. He came over
to consult Lawrence Gardner, secretary
of the association, and to arrange for
the campaigns that are to follow.
Speaking of the approaching session
of congress and the probability of an
extra session, Mr. Black suggested as
his plan to have a tariff bill prepared
during the summer recess of congress
by the treasury department, submitted
to the committee on ways and means,
and introduced at the first session early
enough to give ample time for its con
sideration. A bill so prepared would
have the benefit of the study of the
very men who are in charge of the rev
enues and know just what is needed
and how it should be raised perhaps
better than anybody else. The yValker
tariff of 1846 was gotten up in this way,
and no tariff, said Mr. Black, gave bet
ter satisfaction than that. The question
whether an extra session should be
held was one that he thought could not
be intelligently discussed until the Dem
ocrats had had an opportunity of ex
amining the books and looking into the
condition of things.
HITT ON AN EXTKA SESSION.
Doubts if Pre3ident-Elect Cleve
land Will Favor It.
New Yoiik, Nov. 26.— Congressman
R. R. Hitt, of Illinois, was visiting here
today. Being asked if he favored an
extra session ot congress, he replied:
•'1 have not thought of the matter
very much. Ido not think the Demo
crats care to hurry matters at present,
and it is doubtful if President-elect
Cleveland will favor an extra session.
1 do not see any prospect of the
Republicans in the senate passing tariff
measures pending there. If they should
do so it would not be in line with the
policy of their party."
Speaking about Congressman Cable
and his chances for a cabinet position,
Mr. Hitt said:
"Mr. Cable is no doubt the favorite of
Illinois Democrats for a seat in the
cabinet. He is a capable man and very
popular throughout the state."
OPPOSED BY POPULISTS*.
An Objection to the Divisjpn of
Kansas.
Topeka, Kan., Nov. 26.— John W.
Breidenthal. chairman of the People's
party central committee, came here this
morning:. Mr. Breidenthal said that the
Populists would oppose the division of
the state idea as a unit, on account of
the great expense of conducting sep
arate state governments. The forty
seven counties which have been
spoken of as the ones to compose
the new state have less than one
seventh of the total wealth of the state,
and seventeen of them were not even
entitled to a member In the legislature
until the last apportionment.
Hi'TCinxsox. Kan., Nov. 26. — Repub
lican members of the legislature deny
that any meeting lias been called to
consider ttoe question of dividing the
state. A meeting of representatives was
held here, but it was for the purpose of
outlining the policy to be pursued by
the Republicans at the next session, and
not to divide the state.
ADLAI IN CHICAGO.
His Door Besieged With Office
Seekers.
Chicago, Nov. 26.— Vice President
elect Adlai E. Stevenson, of Illinois,
came to Chicago this morning. Mr.
Stevenson was here, as he said, on a
business of a strictly private nature,
yet office seekers besieged his door all
day.
"I have not seen Mr. Cleveland since
the election," said he, "and I know ab
solutely nothing of his probable course,
except what 1 may have learned from
the newspapers. 1 do not know whether
an Illinois man will be given
a place in the cabinet, but
I should be glad to see one
of her favorite sons so honored.
Neither do I know whether there will
be a special session of cougres3, or
whether there will be any radical tariff
changes in the near future. I have re
ceived only one letter from Mr. Cleve
land since election, and that said noth
ing of his plans. Ido not expect to see
him until we meet in Washington, two
or three days before the inauguration."
Vice President-elect Stevenson to
day received Gov, isortheu, of Georgia,
and forty members of the general as
sembly of that state. The governor,
who was spokesman for the party, con
gratUlatedMr. Stevenson ou Ms victory
"Gov. Northen's grand majority of 70,
--000 in his own state," said the latter \n
reply, "doubtless had much to do with
giving our party the maguiticent ma
jority received."

agreed with those made by the clerk of
the house. Clerk Kerr has also aban
doned any further tabulation for the
present, and has gone out of town.
Burnt the Republican congressional
committee rooms Capl. McKee has been
doing some quiet figuring, with a pur
pose of scaling that majority down
somewhat, and he claims to have suc
ceeded. The figures used by him as a
basis of calculation were, he says, col
lected in all but very few instances
from the returns made to the secre
taries of state of the various slates, and
the table will be printed as the tflkial
statement of the Republican congres
sional committee. The two RUoue
Island districts, where there was^ no
election, have been omitted from the

Democrats elected, 218; Republicans,
128; Populists elected, 8; leaving a

Senator Gorman, in the opinion of
many politicians here, will be offered a
place in Mr. Cleveland's cabinet, likely
secretary of state.
The legislature will probably be asked
to pass a bill allowing the registration
for presidential election to stand for the
February election, with one clay's regis
tration for voters who have come of age
since Nov. 8, or have moved from one
district to another.

Algiers, Nov. 26.— Charles Martial
Allemande - Lavieerie, cardinal arch
bishoD of Carthage and Algiers, died
here at 1 o'clock this morning.
Charles Martial Ailemande-Lavigerie
was born at liayonne, .France, Oct. 21,
1825. He was educated for the church,
and soon became noted for his learning
on theological subjects, lie became
professor of ecclesiastical history in the
university of Paris. His abilities early
attracted attention beyond the bounds
of France, and he was summoned to
CAKDINAL LAVIGEUffc.
various honorable functions atthepapal
court, all of wnich.he discharged to the
eminent satisfaction of his ecclesiastical
superiors. By a decree of March, 1840,
he was designated as bishop of Nancy,
and by a later decree of Jan. 12; 1867, he
was transferred to the See of Algiers,
which.was erected into an archbishopric.
He was afterward? promoted to the
rank of cardinal, and has gained world
wide fame •as one of the most distin
guished prelates of the Vatican,' more
especially on account of his successful
efforts to i reconcile the papacy to the
French republic. It was , through Car
dinal Lavigerie that the present pope
was led to issue his famous statement
to the effect that the Catholics of France
should recognize and obey the republic,
and . substantially that there was no
cause for difference between the church '
and the Republican institutions. This
position of the pope was a death blow
to the monarchist movement in France
and many who had faithfully ; ad
hered "to the royalist cause, be
cause the chuich was supposed to be
in sympathy with royalty now gave in
their adhesion to the republic. Cardinal
Lavigerie's influence is believed also to
have had something to do with shaping
the pope's favorable \ attitude • toward
republican institutions in the United
States and throughout, the world.
Cardinal Lavigerie was an earnest op
ponent to the slave trade and devoted
much of his energies to the agitation for
its suppression. To .his efforts are
largely due - the measures taken by
civilized nations to suppress slave trade
in Africa. Ills death will be regarded
as a great loss by friends of civilization
irrespective of creed. " .
r . Cardinal Lavigerie had been working
with usual energy, and, although
his health was poor, there was no rea
son to expect his death, which was sud
den and due to cerebral congestion.
The interment will be at Carthage.
SEES WAR IN THE DISTANCE.
Leo Believes That Peace in Eu
rope Will Soon Be Broken.
: Rome. Nov. 20.-— The holy father has
directed that all documents relating to
the coming consistory shall be ready by
the 10th or 15th of December. . This
order proves nothing decisive as to the
date of the consistory. The pope has
often delayed it even when everything
was . perfectly ready. This time it
seems that the consistory may take
place beyond the dates men
tioned, in view of the fact that
his holiness is still preoccupied with
the decision of matters of grave politi
cal import. The political situation in
Europe occupies his thoughts to a great
extent. His Christmas discourse four
years ago was a vibrating appeal for
peace. ' The pope believes that war is
well-nigh impossible.and that an armed
peace will not only ruin the peoples of
the various European countries, but will
foster, the anarhists,. who will rise
sooner or later in' barbarous revolt. It
is believed that the time is not tar dis
; tant when the pope will determine upon
■urging a combination for general pro
gressive disarmament. "'.'"

GROVKR'S BACKBONE.
An Alleged Answer He Made to
Lieut. Got. Sheehan. - '
New Yokk, Nov. 26.— "1 appeal
from the machine to the people.
This very night I will issue a
declaration to the electors of
the state telling them the proposi
tion you have made to me, and the
reason why lam not able to accept. I
will ask them to choose between us.
Such is my confidence in the people
that before the week ends, I believe
your machine will be In revolution
against you. 1 cannot make the prom
ises you ask."
In the foregoing words, the Herald
will say tomorrow, Grover Cleveland
replied to the proposition made by Lieut.
Goy. Sheehan at the memorable Vic
toria hotel dinner of Sept. 8, which has
been productive of so much gos
sip, speculation and comment. How
did Mr. Sheehan and Mr. Mur
phy take the reply? Within
ten minutes they withdrew their re
quest for pledges or promises. They
accepted the situation as they found it,
and before they left the room they
pledged to the ticket a support as vig
orous as if their terms had been agreed
to. In speaking of the incident after
ward Mr. Cleveland said:
-."I could not sell myself out to the
organization. I should have lost the
confidence of the independent Demo
crats in the state. I would have been
unworthy to be the candidate of the
party, or to .be president. But then I
never dreamed of giving the pledge."
I inquired ot ny informant why Mr.
Murphy and Mr. Sheehan had made the
demand.
"They were drunk with power," he
replied. "They did not see what it
meant, and what might have followed.
It would have been the destruction of
the machine and we should have had
an ideal campaign."
DEMOCRATIC FAIRNESS.
A Contest Decided in Favor of
the Colored Man.
Columbia, S. C, Nov. 26.— The state
board of examiners (Democratic officials)
today decided the contest in the
Seventh district by declaring William
Murray, a colored Republican of Suin
ter, the successful candidate, Moise,
a white Democrat, ran against him.
There were many irregularities in the
district, and the contest before the
board was made by able lawyers. The
outcome speaks well for the Democratic
fairness in this stale.

Washington, Nov. 36.— The resigna
tions of Maj. W. S. McGinnis, assistant
superintendent of the railway mail
service, nd of Messrs. C. VV. Fisher r.nd
N. W. Leonard, postoffice inspectors,

ment today. Their services have for
some time been in demand for the
United States Postage Stamp Delivery
company, of Boston, of which Col. s. A.
Whitfield, lately first assistant postmas
ter general, is now Western manager,
with headquarters at Chicago, and they
have finally yielded to pressure. They
are, it is said at the department, an im
portant loss to the service, and it is inti

REDUCING FORCES.
Clerks and Agents Dropped From
Department Pay Rolls.
Washington, Nov. 26.— Within the
next few days about thirty of the fifty
nine special agents of the general land
office will be dropped from the rolls, be
cause of insufficient appropriation. For
the same reason ten of the 150 special
agents of the pension office have been
recalled from the field, and probably as
many more will shortly be notified to
report at the office at Washington.
About seventy clerks in the census
office have been dismissed, and it is ex
pected that before the Ist of January
this number will be materially in
creased.
BETTER FOOD
Supplied to the Scholars of Indian
Schools.
Washington, Nov. 26.— Mrs. M. A.
Dorchester, special agent for theludian
schools, reported on the school build
ings and their general comforts. While
no improvement has been made in the
schools, a great improvement has been
found in the manner and variety of the
food. It is thought to be the result of
employing mor^e competent cooks. While
there is much to be done, the tone of the
Indian school service is good, the re
port shows, and there is an earnest ef
fort being made to bring it up to the
standard, intellectually and morally.

BELONG TO A GANG.
The Captured Roslyn Bank
Robbers Members of a
Band of Outlaws.
The Have Been Robbing: Banks
All Over the Pacific
Coast.
The Recent Northern Pacific
Train Robbery LEid atj
Their Door.
Lynchers Quickly Avensre the
Murder of a Georgia
Sheriff.
Poim.ANP, Or., Nov. 26.— Tho three
men arrested near Arlington last nitrht
on a charge of robbing a bank at Kos
lyn, Wash., last September are mem
bers of a band of outlaws who have
been committing depredations all over
the Northwest. The men arrested are
Tom Kunzie. George Zackari and Cal
Hale. A posse of about twenty-live,
consisting of sheriffs of surrounding
counties and a number of detectives,
was formed on Sunday last and started
in pursuit of the three men, who had
been located by a detective.
The entire band of robbers, whose
headquarters are known to ba in Giilam
county, Oregon, numbers twenty or
twenty-five. It is thought they have
been operating all over the Pacific coast,
robbing banks and holding up trains.
The first clew to the rendezvous of the
gang was obtained by finding a horse
which one of the Koslyn bank robbers
had left after riding it nearly to death.
After some time it was ascertained that
the animal was owned in Gillam
county, Oregon.
After following the trail ofthe rob
bers several days the posse came upon
them, and an engagement took place, in
which it is supposed one of the robbers
was wounded. The next day rags with
which the men had dressed tho wounds
were found.
This Cine Was Followed
up and it was learned the robbers went
toward the Columbia river. It is sup
posed that the posse came upon the
three men when they were ott" guard
and captured them without resistance.
It was feared that the remainder of the
gang would attempt to rescue the pris
oners, as they are known to be well
armed and desperate. The three men
were identified by Dr. Lyons, who was
in the Koslyn bank at the time of the
robbery.
George Zackari belongs to a noted
family of that name. The family con
sisted of six brothers, most of whom are
hard characters and long-suspected of
various crimes. They are originally
from Missouri. When they visited
neighboring- small towns they
practically took possession of them,
terrorizing every one in true cow
boy style, shooting glass out of
saloon windows, etc. The prisoners
own small ranches on which they reside
aud are owners of considerable stock,
both horses and cattle. They are sup
posed to be the gang who robbed the
Enterprise City bank in Wallowa county
about a year ago,also another bank near
Weiser, Idaho. It is thought that the
recent 'rain robbery on the Northern
Pacific was committed by the gang, as
some of them are missing from their
haunts. The residents in the vicinity
oi the gang's headquarters are so In
timidated by them that they are atraid
to render any assistance in their capture
or to give any information. Wore
arrests are expected to follow.
KILLED A SHERIFF.
The Murderer AVas Arrested and
Promptly Lynched.
Bomb, Ua., Nov. 28.— The little town
of Plainsviile, Ga., sixteen miles north
of this city, is in a state of excitement
today over a serious .shooting affray that
took place last night. Sheriff McGinnia,
of Gordon county, with a posse of men,
went to arrest Jester Scott and William
Morrow, who are said to be implicated
in a bold robbery at Little Row several
nights ngo. It was learned that the two
men were in a house together/and when
the sheriff and his posse approached the
house the men came out with revolvers
and opened tire on the sheriff and posse.
Sheriff McGiunis was shot in the
stomach and died in a short time. The
men who accompanied Sheriff McGinnia
returned the fire and a general fight en
sued, in which Scott was raptured and
one of the sheriff's deputies was shot.
Scott was taken at once to Calhoun for
safe keeping, as there was no place at
I'lainville where he could be safely
kept. When the prisoner reached Cal
houn a large number of people had con
gregated around the jail, and, after
being reinforced by an armed mob from
Rome, entered the jail and lynched
Scott and released a number of prison
ers.

But Nothint; Certain Is Known
About the Lizzie Burden Case.
T.\rxro\, Mass.. Nov. 'JO.— The inn
Dression prevails that the grand jury
will noi indict Lizzie Borden for the
murder ot her father and Mrs. Borden,
but tho public is no more certain of this
than it wns when the case first went
into the hands of the jury, only by in
ference, since no member of that boily
has expressed himself in any way.
It is felt that the attorney general real
izes that it would be better for all con
cerned to make no error in judgment
now, even at the risk of conjuring up
false appearances, and to place Miss
Borden in v position where she will not
be beyond tlie reach of justice. Tha
probabilities are strongly in favor of no
bill.
