Loaded With Dynamite, an Explosion Follows. SCENES IN A SPANISH TOWN. Civil Governor and Leading Officials Killed. DESTRUCTION WAS TERRIBLE. Madrid, Nov. 4.— Private telegrams received here say that over a thousand people met their death by the fire and explosion at Santander. In addition a trans-Atlantic steamer was burned at the same time, and forty of her crew met death on board of her. A most startlinn message was re ceived late last night from a small village near the city of Santander, capital of the province of that name and situated a little over 200 miles from this city, announcing a terrific explo sion ot dynamite, which had killed the governor of the province and a large number of peoDle, including several of the leading citizens and which had also set fire to the city and caused immense damage on all sides. Further particu lars were unobtainable last night owing to the fact that all the telegraph wires in the vicinity of Santander had been blown down by the explosion, but dis patches are now arriving from the vil lage of 800, which bring particulars concerning the really terrible disaster. The news which reached here this morning is to the effect that a steam ship, believed to be the steamer Volo, British, of 870 tons, which reached Sant ander from Cardiff, caught fire yester day evening, to the intense alarm of the port officials, who feared that the llaines would cause further damage to ship ping to the quay, near which she was moored, and to houses in the vicinity. The officials of Santander seem to have been unaware tliat the Volo was loaded with dynamite, for they sent all the fire department to the scene, the governor of the province, the cnief municipal officers and many of the leading citizens of the town superintending the efforts to subdue the lire on board the Volo. Suddenly there were cries of alarm from those working about the Yolo, and the A.LARMTHG NEWS spread with rapidity that the ship was loaded with dynamite, and that the flames were rapidly approaching the terrible cargo. Before the crowd had time to rush backward there was a dull roar, followed by a fearful buist of rlamu and a deafening explosion which blew the quay into fragments, set fire to a number of adjacent houses, and which smashed the windows iv every bouse for miles around. The inhabitants after the explosion were reduced to a state of the most ab ject terror, and the most alarming re ports were circulated as to the loss of life caused by the explosion. Some of them had it that hundreds ot lives were lost and others claimed that only fifty were killed by the force of the explo- Bioh. The explosion, in any case, shook the whole city and did uti enormous amount of damage. Many citizens were killed, including several representatives of the municipal and provincial government ■who wore watching the efforts by the firemen and others to extinguish the fire. Among the prominent people believed to have been blown to atoms by the ex plosion Is tho governor of the province, wno was last seen in the front rank of those FIGHTING THE FIRE. Many others who were upon the wharf a moment before the dynamite blew the ship and wharf into splinters are missing. The inhabitants were so dazed by the explosion and by the rapid spread of the flames from house to house that for a long time afterwards they appeared to be utterly unable to make any effort to check any further spread of the fire, which, as these dispatches were sent from the villages, were still eating house after house and threaten ing the destruction of the entire city. All towns and villages in the neighbor hood of Santander have sent their tire engines to the scene, and a strong and combined effort is being made to save the property. The town of Santander is situated on a headland ana has a large port in the Bay of Biscay; it is the terminus of a railway from Madrid. Further de tails received here regarding the terrible dynamite explosion at Santander says that in addition to the officers reported billed, the president of the provincial council and the colonel and chief offi cers of the civic guard of Santander were seriously wounded by the explo sion. It is also announced that the whole city is likely to be destroyed, and a large number of its population of over 30,000 people will be rendered homeless. A dreadful panic prevails upon all sides, though engines have already arrived from many points, and the most deter mined efforts are being made to prevent any farther destruction of property. All those on board or near the dyna mite steamer and all those on board the tug boat alongside of her, as well as tho otticors and crew of the trans-Atlantic liner, Alphonse XIL, were killed by the explosion. The body of the civil governor, who was directing the operations on the quay, has been recovered, as well as the bodies of a number of other officials. Among those reported killed is the Mar quis Pom bo. it has been ascertained that the dyna mite-loaded steamer which caused this terrible destruction was the Cabo Muchi caco. belonging to Bilboa, and not the British steamer, as was at first re ported. The authorities of Santander are highly censured on all sides for allow ing the steamer to violate the port regu lations, which forbid the discharge of explosives at the quay side; on the other hand, it is claimed that the au thorities were not aware of the danger ous nature of the steamer's cargo or they certainly would not have been so foolhardy as to venture on board of her, atui to allow thousands of people around her while she was on fire. Every possible assistance has been Bent to Santander, where hundreds of doctors are already at work. A number of temporary hospitals have, been organized in buildings un touched by the flames, and there the DocUirs and their assistants are doing everything possible in this direextrem iiy. The troops sent to the spot are also rendering great service in blowing up buildiugs across the pathway of the flames and the districts still threatened with conflagration. All the inhabitants of the neighbor hood have thrown open their houses for the reception of the wounded and home less. No definite estimate of tho loss of life has been received up to the hour this dispatch was sent, but there has yet been no denial of the statements made in private and other dispatches to the effect that the death list will be figured by the thousands instead of by the hun dreds. The queen regent, as soon as she learned of the extent of the disaster at Sant Ander. expressed a desire to go there, but the governor dissuaded her and sent the minister oi finance to rep resent the government and do all in his power to relieve the suf ferers. The minister, who has property relations >n Sant Ander, started for that place tonight. He was accompanied by the senators and mem bers of the chamber of deputies irom the Sant Ander district. It is now offi cially estimated that the dead will num ber over three hundred. The number of missing and injured is enormous. Many of tbe injured are dying owing to the want of prompt medical assistance. Twenty-seven civic guards and all the members of the police force but two were killed. Among the other victims are the civil governor, the colonel of a regiment, three naval officers, the head port official, and the judge fiscal. A majority of the passen gers of a train which arrived at the mo ment of the explosion were also killed. It appears that the steamer which ex ploded carried 500 packages of dynamite, although the offlcers^declared tnere were but twenty, which were landed at the beginning of the fire. Billings' Schedule.

TEN LABORERS ARE LOST. YAWL CAPSIZED IN GOTHAM'S BAY BY A HIGH SEA. BRAVE BATTLE WITH WAVES. Twenty-Two Mechanics Employed on Ho Hi ii an Island Were Re turning to Their Homes When a Sudden Squall Struck the Boat — Rescuers Succeed in Savins Twelve. New York, Nov. 4.— Ten livesj were lost by the capsizing of a yawl in the lower bay about 1 o'clock this after noon. The names of the drowned are: John Crosby, 5 Beech street, New York; Charles Drude, of tho Twenty-sixth ward, Brooklyn; Edward Kenney, of New York; Benjamin McGuire, New York, Thomas Hoey, Brooklyn; Charles Smith, Brooklyu; James Malloy, Brook lyn; Albert Norman, Tompkinsville, L. L; Leonard Wanzer, Ainityville, L. L, and John Blom . Twenty-two mechanics and laborers, employed by the contractors who are working on the new buildiugs on Hoff man island, embarked in a thirty-foot yawl shortly after noon to return to their homes. The sea in the bay was running very high, but the yawl, with a double-reefed sail, successfully battled with the waves until within 400 feet of the long dock at South Beach, where the men were to disembark. The sail had just "lowered," when a sudden squall struck the boat. By. quick work the yawl was kept from overturning.but the sea washed completely over the craft several times. All hands were set to work bailing with their hats.the only things at nand. For a few miuntes they were successful in keeping the yawl afloat, but a large wave struck the boat and filled her com pletely. The yawl sank, leaving the twenty-two men struggling in the wa ter. The catastrophe was witnessed by people on the shore at South Beash. Small boats were hurriedly manned aud sent out to rescue the workmen. Almost at the same time a naphtha launch was sent off from Hoffman isl and on the same mission. Before the rescuers could reach the spot where the men were struggling in the water ten, of the men: had gone down for the last time. The body of one was grappled as it was sinking by the men in one of the rescuing boats. Charles Sevenwright.one of the work men, had almost succeeded in reaching the shore by swimming wheu he became unconscious. He was wa3hed upon the beach by the serf. Willing hands were waiting to receive him, and he was soon revived. The other twelve men were picked up by the small boats, and the launch was lauded at South Beach. PRETIY CHURCH ROW. Germans and Americans of Cherry Grove Fail to Agree. Cherry Grove, Minn., Nov. 4.— There has been considerable trouble arising out of the new church. It waa built by both Germans aud Americans under the German Evangelical discip line, but with the understanding that the Americans could have any licensed minister to preach at auy time not con fiictiug with the German appointments. The Americans then engaged Rev. Mr. Bly, of Spring Valley, to preach Sunday evenings when there were no services, when behold, they are informed that it is against the discipline of the Evangel ical church to have a preacher of any other denomination preach iv their church; consequently the Americans have their money invested in a church which has to be Kept shut only when the minister cau come out from Preston to preach, part of the time in German and part in English. They now nave to go three or four miles to church with a church near by standing closed and silent. LARGE AMOUNT INVOLVED. The Crescent Flouring MJII Trouble Coming Up Again. Special to tbe Globe. Hokah, Nov. 4.— A point in the now well known controversy between Car gills Bros., of La Crosse, Wis., owners of the Crescent flouring mill at this place, and Sprague & Thompson, own ers of the Hokah Roop river water power, is to be argued before Judge Whytock, at Preston, this month. The original cases amount to about $60,000 in controversy, and are yet to be heard before the supreme court. The ninety nine-year water power lease was can celed by the power owners last year, and the mill owners sue for a renewal of the lease, this being the point to be decided by Judge Whytock. Will Each Raise a Dollar. Vermillion, S. D., Nov. 4.— The in terest shown in raising funds for re placing the apparatus and libraries of the state university is in some cases decidedly amusing. The one theme which overshadows all others is that of bonding the county to replace the build ing; but while this is being considered by the men, the women have banded together and taken a pledge each to earn a sum not less than 31 and donate it to the university fund. Then, to make sure that no sister is playing false and has not earned the dollar herself, they are preparing an entertainment, which tney call an experience meeting, at which a full report of each one's work will be made. Commissioners Visiting Dakota. Yankton, S. D., Nov. 4.— EnriqueM. Nelson and Joseph Cilly Vernett, two world's fair commissioners from the Argentine Republic, reached Yankton today on an excursion of their own. Mr. Nelson is an agricultural egineer, and Mr. Vernett owns large tracts of land near Buenos Ayres, and they are deeply interested in the raising of cereals.

Rainy Lake Coal Vein. Dui.utii, Minn., Nov. 4.— Frank Por ter, a well-known quarter-breed, was in Tower yesterday, and stated he has found coal near Lake Kabotogaraa.

I have taken -steps to acquire title, and Ijelaim the distinction of be i'lrt me first to locate a ooal vein In the Hainy river country." RIOT AMONG COUNCILMEN. CHICAGO'S RULERS GET INTO A DIS GRACEFUL FIGHT OVER HARRISON'S SUCCESSOR; 1 Police Called in to Restore Order' and the Howling Aldermen Subside — Special Election for Mayor on tbe Third Tuesday of This Month— ls swift Tempo rary Mayor ? Chicago, Nov. 4.— Such scenes were never before enacted in the chamber of the city council of the city of Chicago as transpired there today. Before the craped speaker's desk stood two alder men, opponents politically in the coun cil, each declaring himsell the chairman of the board. A reading clerk, an offi cer ot the council, in order to protect one of these speakers in his alleged right to rule over the body, leaped upon the back of the opposing up eaner and tried to eject him from the stand. A clerk of the body tore up a resolution regularly introduced because it was not in line with what his party desired. Over the crape-draped rail of the speaker's stand leaped another alderman upon the back of the clerk. To his aid flocked nis colleagues. Upon him jumped an alderman of the opposing faction, throwing off his coat as he ran, and clutching at the throat of the mau who by force was trying to get before the council that which should legally have been received. Police officers rushed into the enclosure to separate the struggling aldermen, and in the fight the crape which hung about the desk of the dead mayor was rent and torn down and trampled under foot. The men who three days ago spent money and labor to honor Mayor Har rison disgraced his memory today by a disreputable brawl over Mie right to sit for twenty minutes in his chair. Aid. McGillen (Dem.) and Hepburn (Rep.) were nominated for chairman of today's meeting of the council, aud at the call of the roll the clerk announced that McGillen was elected. He rushed to the speaker's chair aud seized the gavel. Bedlam followed. Amid turmoil and shouts Aid. Hepburn, who is an adherent of the Madden Republican element, mounted to the speaker's chair aud the clerk attempted to THIiOW HIM OUT. Both aldermen claimed the election and each called for the reading of differ ent resolutions. Uepburn. the Repub lican, insisted that a resolution by Aid. Madden be heard, and the latter began to read, while the clerk read a Demo cratic resolution. Madden handed his resolution to Hep burn, and the clerk jumped upon Hep burn, seized the resolution and tore it to shreds. In an instant Aid. Swift, the Repub lican candidate for mayor, had run to the speaker's desk, leaped over the rail and alighted ou Clerk Neumeister's back. The Democrats rushed to the front. Alderman Carey threw off his coat and leaped at Hepburn's throat. Both sides ran to tne aid of their men. "Police! police!" was :he call. Officers ran in aud tried to eject Hep burn. They also grappled with Carey and made him put on hi* coat. "For God's sake act like men," shouted Aid. Campbell from the top of his desk. Aid. Swift (Rep.) rushed to the speak er's desk and shook hanas with Aid. McGilleu (Dem.) Police Inspector Ross stood behind them. "Take your seats," ordered Aid. Mc- Gillen. ''One at a time. The c^iair will recognize you in time." "1 demand to be heard," said Aid. Hepburn. Uproar followed. Excited cries rang from every part of the chamber. The police were keut busy stopping scuffles. Finally Aid. Swift secured the floor. "I recognize you as chairman." he said, addressing McGillen. "I ask my friends to do so. I will put it to a vote." "No!" "No!" "No vote!" went up the cries. "I am chairman, "answered McGillen. "I am a mau not addicted to unfairness. I will treat you right." The meeting then quieted down some what, and a resolution was put through, providing for a SPECIAL ELECTION to be held the third Tuesday of the present month, thus ending the' attempt to elect the dead mayor's successor at today's special meeting of the council. This was a partial triumph for the Mad den Republicans, but the chairmanship of the council goes to the Democrats, who, as a result of the Swift Repub licans' help today, are in alliance with Swift, and he may ultimately triumph. Aid. Madden presented a resolution providing for the selection, by today's session, of a temporary mayor. Aid. Tripp had introduced a similar resolu tion, and in the attempted discussion which followed auother disgraceful scene of disorder ensued. The police were called upon to restore order, and the howling aidermen were forced to take their seats. Tripp'3 resolution was finally passed, and Swift placed in nom ination by the Republicans, while Mc- Gillen was nominated by the Democrats • for mayor pro tern. The balloting re sulted in thirty-four votes for Swiff, thirty-three for McGillen and one blank, and the chair ruled "No election." The ' excitement in the corridors outside the • council chamber was intense during the' row. Special details of officers were-, called and with difficulty Handled the crowd which wildly surged back and forth in ah eudeavor to gain entrance to the meeting. The Republican members left the council chamber, but the Democrats feared to leave, as they were afraid the. opposition would return, and with its quorum and majority (thirty-five votes)' elect a temporary mayor. After an ab sence of an hour the Republicans re turned and the session was regularly, adjourned. Counsel was called in, but was unable to decide whether Or not Swift had been elected. Shortly after Chairman McGillen re fused to declare Swift elected on the vote of 34 to 33 and one blank, the Re publican aldermen withdrew to the ante room of the council chamber. They proceeded immediately to swear in Swift as mayor. County Clerk Wulff' administered the oath, which was drawgi : up and attested. -r- : T;..'

Maskato, Minn., Nov. 4.— The body of N. P. Nelson, who was reported .as missing, was found by hunters hanging to the limb of a tree about two miles from this city today, where it had been since his disappearance Wednesday night. A bloody jack-knife in a pocket showed he had first severed an artery in his left wrist before hanging him self. Coroner Shoemaker held an in quest and a verdict of suicide was ren dered. It is believed he bled to death, % as his knees were resting on the ground, and there were no signs of straugula lation. " Mr. . Nelson was industrious, arid r had $3,000' in the First National bank of this city, but for the slightest cause has threatened ; to take his ; . life for years, being unable to bear any dis appointment.

Two or Them of Rather a Mys terious Nature. Special to the Globe. • Bismakck, N. D., Nov. 4— William ilolleiubaek, a druggist, one of the old est citizens, a resident of Bismarck for over twenty years, died at the hospital today after a brief illness of only a few days. There were two other mystprious deaths last night, one a Frenchman named Baulieu, found on Second street, his body having been dragged some dis tance, the evidence pointing strongly to a "blind pig." A coroner's jury is in vestigating. There were no marks of violence, and it is supposed he died from drink and to avoid suspicion his body was removed from the place where he died. The other death is that of a hobo near Menoken, about two miles from the track. He was found in the edge of a slough. He probably died from exposure, and nothing was round ou him by which he could be identified. DULUTH ISN'T A FOOL, So There Will Be No Upheaval In Water Works Affairs. Special to the Globe. * Duluth, Nov. 4.— 1 see in the Globe of today a statement purporting to come from here to the effect that the city council had "partially decided" upon the erection of an indepen dent system of water works for the city, and that the "local representative of Eastern bond buyers" is ready to givp a bon us on the $800,000 of bonds which the city proposes to Issue for this purpose. There is no doubt that if the city of Du luth should issue for any legitimate purpose bonds to the extent of $800,000, or any other reasonable sum, they would command a bonus in the money market, because the credit of Duluth is A No. 1; but the whole statement is rot of the first water, and is inspired by a feeling of dislike arising from purely interested motives on the part of a very small por tion of our citizens against our present water suupiy company. The city is now very well supplied with ex cellent water from the lake, and the city has not the remotest intention of putting In another system. It has the privilege of purchasing the works of the present company, and, like all other well-governed cities, proposes to own its own water supply for the benefit ot its inhabitants, and when the proper time comes will undoubtedly purchase the existing plant and enlarge It to meet the necessities of a rapidly growing community. The very reason that the credit of Duluth rests upon such a solid foundation as to command a bonus for its bonds, is because its peo ple have too much sense to embark in any such tomfool enterprises as the construction of a duplicate system of water works. When the few disgruntled citizens who are talking such nonsense get on top, our bonds will go a-begging on the market, but they won't "get there." Duluth. Unknown Man Found Dead.

HOW THE ROBBERS HELD UP PASSEN GERS ON THE IRON MOUNTAIN TRAIN. Highwaymen Refused Small Sums of Money and Cheap Watches —Two Hundred Bullets in the Express Car — Brutal Murder of a Brave Conductor — Two Robbers in Jail. Little Bock, Ark., Nov. 4.— Not since the day when the assassination of John L. Clayton was announced on the streets has such intense excitement prevailed in this city as was caused this morning by the news of last night's train robbery at Oliphant, an exclusive report of which was telegraphed abroad by the Associated Press. The robbery occurred at a lonely saw iuill station in independence county, and a more de sirable place for a hold-up could not have been found at any of the stations. Oliphant is situated on the largest and most dense canebrake in the state of Arkansas. For fifteen miles on either side of the road is one continuous mass of almost impenetrable reeeds. It is thought some of the robbers are now in this canebrake. ♦There ia little doubt that the robbery was committed by a band of men ex perienced in the business. Engineer Harriet, of Train No. 51, says that the men who jumped on the engine and or dered him to throw up his hands showed unmistakable evidence of having had experience with locomotives before. The train had not fairly stopped when robbers began tiring a fusilade of shots from their Winchesters. Two of the men jumped on the engine, and Engi neer Harriet and Fireman John Quarles immediately found themselves looking down the muzzles of their Winchesters. Tney were ordered to dismount, and were made to accompany the robbers WITH A GUN PLACED at their heads. The brakeinan and porter were also captured aud placed under guard, Conductor McNally only escaping, and the whole crew were forced to go through the train in advance of the robbers. They tried to make the engineer and fire man open the express car, but they declined. When the door had been opened they endeavored to maKe Quarles open the safe, but he told them he had nothing to do with the safe. The rob bers inquired as to where the express messenger was, but Quarles replied that h* did not know, while the messenger was standing beside him at that mo ment. Harriet aud Quarles were in charge of the robbers while McNally was firing at them. It is not believed that any of McNally's shots took effect. Quarles said that the robbers demanded watches as well as money, but if a man handed over a bad timepiece It was given back to him. The xobbers finally recognized the express messenger, P. B. Moore, who was standing in the car with the en gineer and fireman, and compelled him to open the money safe, pointing two Winchesters at his head. There was another safe In the car containing jew elry, but this was not touched by tho robbers. All the time the robbery was going on inside the train, the four men sta tioned outside kept up a fusilade of fir ing. The express car was perforated with bullets, and it is estimated that fully 200 6HOTS WERE FIRED. After the robbers had finished with the express car, they went into the coaches. The four were still on the outside, two on each side, shooting and swearing. The three inside marched I the train crew into the car in front of them. Every man held up both hands. The colored porter came in first, and was frightened nearly to death. One of the men took a position on the side ot the Icoach near the door, and leveled his Winchester at the heads of the row of passengers on that side of the cor, while another took charge of the other half of the coach in a similar • manner. The third man— aud he was a vicious, bloodthirsty looking fellow.six feet tall, took position in the aisle. Leveling his revolver at the heads of the passengers, he quietly, indeed, with almost modesty, informed the passengers that they had better pro ceed to yield up their valuables. He then proceeded slowly along down the aisle, relieving every man of his valua bles. I Mr. Watterkline, of Memphis, was a passenger on the train. Speaking of Conductor McNally, he said: "McNslly, the conductor, was one of the bravest men 1 ever saw. While all the shooting was going on outside, aud in the face of three c- iour Winchesters, he drew his revolver, walked to the rear platform of the baggage car and took his stand. It was evident from the determined look on his face that he meant to defend his trian even at the risk ot LOSING HIS LIFE. When he reached the platform he stepped down on the steps, grasped tbe iron railing with his left hand and be gan using his revolver with his right. He only fired one shot. Just as he was about to fire the second time, a bullet from one of the robbers' Winchesters, which had been aimed deliberately at him, struck him in the abdomen just below the navel. The baggageman was on the step behind him, and he fell into his arms. He was conscious only a few brief moments before he expired. He asked us to notify his sister in Cleve land about his death, but the poor fel- Sights and Scenes ... of the World. NOV. 5, 1893. PART 1. NUMBER 1. Numbers and Date Changed Every Day.

No idea as to the amount of booty secured by the robbers can be given, as the express people rwf use to talk. The robbers did not molest the lady passen eers. and in several cases declined money from male passengers on the ground tiiat they were workmgmen and could not afford the loss. In several in stances they returned small sums, rang ing from 25 cents to 81, to their victims to get breakfast with. The robbers told the passengers they wanted only good watches, and when a passenger handed over a cheap wat h t was handed back again. Ah inquest was held on the remains of the dead conductor at Cook's under taking establishment this morning and a verdict rendered in accordance with the facts above detailed. Mr. McNally was a member of all the Masonic orders, both York and Scottish Rite, and was a thirty-second degree Mason, in good standing. The only relatives he is known to have are a sister, Mrs. Kate IShehau, Cleveland, 0., and a niece who resides in Cincinnati. The remains were taken charge of by the Masons, and, after the inquest, put in a beautiful casket. The face of the dead man had an almost life-like expression. The re mains vyill be shipped to Cleveland, 0., for burial. J. R. Lemons, a railroad switchman, was arrested tonight in this city by the police and locked up until morning on suspicion that he knows too much abont the recent train robbery. He, in com pany with three other tough-looking citizens, arrived on the ill-fated train this morning, and, taking breakfast at a restaurant, one went to Memphis and another to Fort Smith, while Lemons remained, and at 10 o'clock visited the chief of police. He said he met a man at the depot on his arrival who knew all aboat the rob bery and saw a man named Cass kill Conductor McNally. He was sat isfied this man was one of the robbers, and wauted the chief to agree to divide the reward it he as sisted in tho capture. He had in his possession a lady's gold chain and a switchman's certificate of discharge from the Cotton Belt, April 11, 1893. He was watched all day by the police and locked up tonight, and will be compelled to give a straight account of himself before he gets his freedom. He is five feet six inches tall, heavy set, has a dark mustache, and wore a dark shirt aud dirty clothes, being dressed like a switchman. CLEVERLY CAPTURED. A Pal Gives His Confederates Away, and a Train Robbery la Foiled. Kxoxvili/e. Term., Nov. 4.— The people of Knoxville were greatly ex cited when they read this morning of the attempted robbery or the express train at Coal Creek, ou the Knoxville & Ohio railroad last night. The plot to rob the express originated with F. W. Cer ding, who served for a long time as delivery clerk in the local express office here. Jim Smith, his pal, who gave the snap away and put the authorities onto it, is a barroom loafer. He paid dearly for it, as he is in the hospital here, and will die. Cerding belongs to a respectable family that once possessed considerable wealth. He is in the Knoxville jail.and will pay the penalty of his crime. It was at a water tank a considerable distance away from the village of Coal Creek that the attack was to have been made. Had not express and railroad officials been previously notified of the attempt ed robbery and provision made to pre vent it, it would have doubtless been successful. There was comparatively little currency in the express car at the time. The defeat and capture of the robbers was so complete that it serves as an emphatic warning to all who may think of attempting a like robbery in future. TRAIN ROBBERS CAUGHT. Two Highwaymen Who Held Up the Iron Mountain Train in Jail. Little Rock, Ark., Nov. 4.— Two of the Oliphant train robbers were cap tured at Jamestown, thirty miles from the sceue of the robbery, at 5 o'clock this afternoon. They are now at Bates ville. One of them is said to be Jessie B. Roper, who shot and killed Sheriff Bylock, of Baxter county, a year aeo, aud for whom tnere is a reward of §1,500, dead or alive. It is believed that the other five will be captured before morning. A man giving his name as J. T. Pol lard was arrested at Fisher today on suspicion of being implicated in' tho robbery. ll is clothes were covered with mud aud he could not give a satisfactory account of himself. Chief of Police Mc- Mahoh was visited by a man calling himself James R. Lemons, who said he knew the man who shot Conductor Mc- Nally. Lemons claimed to be a railroad man, and arrived in the city at 2 o'clock this morning. It is said he" has conclu sive evidence that a man named Cass shot McNally, but he refused to disclose his evidence. The chief began an in vestigation, and from what he has learned he thinks Lemons knows some thing about the men who participated in the robbery. Some startling develod ments are looked for. Onlj Got Five Hundred. Batesville, Ark., Nov. 4. — Two robbers are now in jail at this place. There are some doubts about Roper being the name of one of them. He is sullen and stubborn, and says nothing. A large lot of watches, jewelry and some money were taken from them. It Is reliably stated tonight that the entire amount of money secured from the Pa cific Express company's safe will not exceed $500. (CtJT THIS OUT.) BE SURE AND GET : ; The Handsome ART SUPPLEMENT That Goes With the SUNDAY GLOBE. NO. 309. THE SILVERJWAR CRY Remedy for Our Wrongs in the Ballot. DOWN WITH THE GOLD BUGS. "Do Not Be Intimidated by Wall Street and POWER OF NATIONAL BANKS," Is the Latest Wail of Peffer, Jones and Company. A POPULISTIO PRODUCTION. Washington. Nov. 4.— The Populist members of congress, including sen ators and members of the house, today issued an address appealing to the peo ple to take up the silver cause. It is significant that the name of Senator Jones (Nevada) appears among the signers of the document. The address begins with a statement of the aggre gate debts of the world and of the gold and silver in existence, calls attention to the fact that the arts require almost the total gold production, and says the decrease of the volume of this metal caused by hoarding has caused it to appreciate 40 to 50 per cent. The ad dress continues : "The repeal of the purchasing clause of the Sherman bill destroys sliver as money of ultimate redemption, and re duces that metal to credit money to tloat only by redemption in gold. The 61, 100,000, 000 of paper and silver now in circulation must rest upon less that £100.000,000 of gold in the treasury as available for redemption. The only reason for demonetizing sil ver was to enhance the value of gold and obliga tions papable In money. It is further proposed to sell bonds of the United States and buy gold to strengthen the reserves in the treasury. National banks will use the bonds for banking and issue their notes, upon which the people must pay interest, a3 well as on the bonds." After reviewing the SILVER LKGISLATIOX since 1873 it Is asserted that Hie secre tary of the treasury surrendered the option to pay in silver to the exporters of gold without consideration and then proclaimed that the Sherman act was driving gold out of the country. The address criticsies the Democratic party sharply. It asserts, in etfect, that the Sherman act interfered with the estab lishment.of a gold standard and that the New York and London bankers and tho present administration In the United States and hi the Gladstone government in England conspired to force its repeal. "The president issued a eaU-foc an ex tra session of congress, in which he at tributed the panic which he himself had aided to create, to the Sherman act." Referring to the contest over the re peal bill in the senate, the address says it continued until the gold power and federal patronage could induce a ma jority of that body to submit to execu tive dictation. The gold press in every commercial center teemed with misrep resentation, insult and abuse of the un purchasable defenders of the people. Banks, boards of trade and commercial press demanded a vote without debate. The power of money was felt on every band. Intimidation and threats of per sonal violence loaded the mails of sen ators. Unusual and cruel hours were resorted to to exhaust the advocates of silver and deprive them of an oppor tunity of spreading upon the record THEIK RKASONS why the people should not be robbed for the benefit of the money changers. The document ends with an appeal to the people to study the question, and with this: "Trust no man who once be trayed you. Put no faith in any presi dent who assumed dictatorial power. Do not be overawed or intimidated by Wall street and the power of the na tional banks. When the people rise in their might, intrigue, cunning, usurpa tiou, bribery and corruption will vanish before them." The paper is signed by the following: Senators — W. A. Peffer, John P. Jones, William M. Stewart, James 11. Kyle, William V. Allen. Representatives— John Davis, William Baker, H. E. Boen, John C. Bell, W. A. Harris, T. J. Hud son, Jerry Simpson, Lafe Peuce, O. M. Kern, W. A. McKeighan. Gen. A. J. Warner, president of the American Bimetallic league, also issues an address, in which, after dwelling upon the recent anti-silver legislation, closes as follows: "The remedy must be sought at the ballot box. Catechise every candidate for a legislative office, and pledge every candidate for congress to work and vote for the restoration of the constitutional standard of money with the coinage of both metals without discrimination against either, and the issue and con trol of paper money by the government of the United States. Retire every rep resentative who has beer, unfaithful to his trust, and elect only true and tried men to represent your interest in tho great struggle now before us." Postal Changes.
