Wabasha, Minn., Nov. 21— The reg
ular train on tiie narrow gauue division
of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul
railway, running between Wabasha
and Zumbrota, was wrecked about five
miles below here this forenoon about
8:30. 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 foot ot 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, M'\ Blair, of Winona, and
Miss Bell Robertson, of this place.
Only tin; last oamed 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
had started for the dour 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
s)ie was removed from the car.
In the baguane car were several sec
tion men and regular employes. T. J.
J'oneellet, 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
for a week or more. The engineer and
lireman, 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 rattle slightly hurt. The train
was manned by a special crew, the reg
ulars having remained in Wabasha last
night and intending to meet at Zumbro
Falls this morning. Altogether, it was
a very fortunate wreck, considerine 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.
Coroner Landenberger Will Not
Hold an Inquest.
?! reinl to the Globe.
Le Sueub, Minn., Nov. 20.— 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
Atones Bhear to proceed. At the house
of Joseph Huonder he procured the to
b;im> 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
white posvder 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 Iluondcr had
been complaining for several days that
his tobacco tasted badly, and one of his
men who had taken a cliewot it had
been unable to chew it, and had thrown
it away. Rounder had been iv the
habit oi leaving liis tobacco around
wherever lie laid his coat, and, as Miss
linear had been at the house frequent
ly, it is sure Unit she had ample oppor
tunity to place the poison in it. The
coroner also took possession of the let
ter written by the young woman to her
sister, Mouiider's wife. In that, as
stated in the Globe already, she said
that hlic 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. She said she
was growing poorer every day, and no
one seemed to love her. While Uie
wreath was being made for Hounder's
coffin, she said: "Tomorrow night you
will be making one for me." When re
proved for talking so she said: "Well,

suddenly after she reached home that
no aid could be given her.
Low Tariff Republicans for the
Little Norwegian.
Special to the Globe.
Albert Lea, Minn., Nov. 20.— 1n an
interview today Senator 11. C. Nelson
expressed doubts of Senator Davis' re
election. lie said: "There are several
Populist senators who would vote for a
low-tariff Republican to defeat Davis.
Gov. Merrlam has friends among the,
senators who would support him in pref
erence to Davis on account of Merriam's
low tariff views. Knute Nelson, 1 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
Rd? Better have him for senator
■an governor, and 1 don't think
that he would vote to bankrupt
the United States treasury for the sake
of keeping up monopoly high tariff. 1
think ihe Populists will be united in
opposition to Davis on account of his
extreme hiirh tariff and subsidy record,
mid 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
democrats in the country, but i expect
to see Republicans help to build up a
great independent party in 1894."

Ilay ford lias just returned from La

Cordova, this county, who is very much
wanted by some five or six of the busi

Maiusox, Nov. 20. — About four
months ago a young man by the name

days ago, when a Mr. Severson, the
widow's first and original husband, ap

Among others who are expected to be

W. C. Whitney and other local Demo
cratic leaders, including represent
atives of 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

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

with the extra session question.
Black* Plan. '
Washington, Nov. 20.— 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 Fork, at which Mr.
Cleveland was present and made a
speech, is in the city and was one of
the enthusiastic spectators of the 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 Walker
tariff of 1840 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.
Doubts il' Pre3ident-Elect Cleve-
land Will Favor It.
New Yokk, Nov. 2o. — Congressman
R. K. llitt, 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.
I do not see any prospect of the
Kepublicans in the senate passing tariff
measures pending there. If they should
do so it would not be iv line with the
policy of their party."
Speaking about Congressman Cable
and his chances for a cabinet position,
Mr. II Ht said:
•'Mr. Cable is no doubt the favorite of
Illinois Democrats for a seat in the
cabinet. lie is a capable man and very
popular throughout the state."
An Objection to the Diviswm of
Topkka, 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.
11l tciiixson. Kan., Nov. 26. — Repub
lican members of the legislature deny
that any meeting has been called to
consider tfce question of dividing the
state. A meeting of representatives was
held here, but it was for t lie purpose of
outlining the policy to be pursued by
the Kepublicans at the next session, and
not to divide the state.
His Door Besieged "With Office
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
"I have not seen Mr. Cleveland since
the election," said he, "aud I know ab
solutely nothing of his probable course,
except what I may have learned from
the newspapers. I do not know whether
an Illinois man will be given
a place in the cabinet, but
1 should be glad to see one
of her favorite sons so honored.
Neither do I know whether there will
be a special session of congress, or
whether there will be any radical tariff
chances 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 Presicfent-elect Stavenson to
day received Gov, I-yortheu, of Georgia,
and forty members of the general as
setubiy of that state. The governor,
who was spokesman for the party, con
gratulated Mr. Stevenson on ills victory.

Political Gossip From the Nation's
New Yokk, Nov. 20.— Senator Faulk
ner, of West Virginia, who is one of the
Democratic leaders in the senate, said
today that he was not in favor of an
extra session of congress, and did not
believe there was any necessity for one.
Smith M.Weed had a short conference
this afternoon with Senator Gorman,
before the latter started for home. Mr.
Weed has been mentioned as a candi
date for the United Stales senatorship.
He refused to talk politics this after
State Senator Erwin and a number of
other Republicans from up the state
weie in town today. From some of
them it was learned that the Republican
votes in the legislature would be cast
for Senator Frank Hiscock in the elec
tion for United States senator.
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 day's regis
tration for voters who have come of age
since Nov. 8, or have moved from one
district to another.

Algiers. Nov. 20.— Charles Martial
Allemande - Lavieerie, cardinal arch
bishoi) of Carthage and Algiers, died
here at 1 o'clock this morning.
Charles Martial Ailemande-Lavigerie
was born at Bayonne, France, Oct. 21,
1825. He was educated for the church,
and soon became noted for his learning
on theological subjects. He became
professor of ecclesiastical history in thu
university of Paris. His abilities early
attracted attention beyond the bounds
of France, and he was summoned to
1 isr^fe*
vaiious honorable functions atthepapal
court, all of wnicn lie 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, 1567, he
was transferred to the See of Algiers,
which waserected 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 lvconcile 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 royaiist 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. Ilis death will be regarded
as a great loss by friends of civilization
irrespective of creed.
Cardinal Lavigerie had been working
with his 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.
Leo Believes That Peace in Eu-
rope Will Soon Be Broken.
Rome. Nov. 26.— The iiol y father lias
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 anar hists, 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.
Quirjnal circles are greatly disquieted.
The diplomacy of the cousulta. as it is
learned from absolutely certain sources,
Is taking active and powerful measures
at London, Vienna and .Berlin to stop
negotiations with France which aim at
rapprochement between France and
Austria, England and Germany. The
Quirinal knows that an entente between
England and France would render its
position not only difficult, but danger
ous. Italy would be isolated and would
have everything to fear, both from the
papal side aud from the national senti
ment of France. This explains why the
Italian government now coquettes with
France and protests that Italy has al
ways had a profound friendship for the
consistory. A person occupying a high
position has assured the associated
press correspondent that the days of the
triple alliance are numbered.

Lynchers Quickly Avenge the
Murder of a Georgia
Poim.ANn, Or., Nov. 20.— Tho three
men arrested near Arlington last nieht
on a charge of lobbing a bank at Kos
lyn, Wash., last September are mem
bers of a band of outlaws wlio have
been committing depredations all over
the Northwest. The men arrested are
Tom Kunzie, Geortie Zackari and Cal
Hale. A posse of about twenty-five,
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 be in Giilaui
county, Oregon, nuinoers twenty or
twenty-tive. It is thought they have
been operating all over the Pacific coast,
robbing banks and holding up trains.
The lirst clew to the rendezvous of the
gang was obtained by finding a horse
which one of the Roslyn bank robbers
had left after riding it nearly to death.
After some time it was ascertained that
the animal was owned in (Jilkini
county, Oregon.
After following the trail ofth e 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.
Tliis 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 oil 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
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
and are owners of considerable stock,
both horses and cattle. They are sun
posed to be the gang who robbed the
Enterprise City bank in Wallovva county
about a year ago.also another bank near
Weiser, Idaho. It is thought that the
recent train robbery on the Northern
Pacific was committed by the gang, as
some of them are missing from their
haunts. The residents in the vicinity
of the gang's headquarters are so in
timidated by them that they are afraid
to render any assistance in their capture
or to give any information. More
arrests are expected to follow.
