THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY, EEBHUARY 5, 1884. PASSENGERS IN PERIL. Serious Accident to a West Bound Pacific Passenger Train Yesterday. accident to ill -was on its while near Bnprineer Jackson and Jj'ireman Brooks Sustain Serious Injuries There were rumors yesterday afternoon of an accident to the Missouri Pacific passenger train coining west from Si. Louis. Those who assembled at the depot read the statement ou the bulletin board tksit the train would he ''indefinitely late" in reching Sedalia, and further that a train for Kansas City would be made up iere and leave at 4:45 p. ru. At that lime an engine, baggage car, and two passenger coachfs c me up to the depot, passengers bound west got aboard, and the train moved off. The facts regarding the train are that as it wav westward, and the Gasconade river, eighty-eigt miles from St. Louis, a large boulder became de lached from a bluff bv the side of the track and rolled in front of the train. The en--gine dashed against the stone and was thrown at right angles to the track. The engineer and fireman received severe in jurits The mail car was slewed around, but none of the passenger coaches were thrown from the track, and not a passen ger was injured in the slightest degree. A wrecking train on the east end of the line was sent for. The two passenger trains met there and transferred passengers and baggage- 'JLhe passengers ipon the delayed train reached this city about 1 o'clock this morn ing. .From the attaches of the train and pas sengers, it was learned that '"Stonewall" Jackson," the engineer, was scalded, and had. his ri&bt arm rendered useless. It is feared, also, that he received severe in ternal injuries by inhaling steam. Mr. Jackson is one of the oldest and most pop ular engineers on the Pacific, and resides in St. Louis. Fireman Brooks was caught in the wreck and had his right foot twisted under him, and although no hones were broken, his loot ank ankle were wrenched out of shape. Both engineer and firemen exhibited great nerve and presence of mind, and when poor Brooks was rescued from his perilous pssition his first inquiry wae for his engin--eer, and learning that he was safe, said that he could bear his pain. lie refused to take opiates or whisky. From the mail agent the reporter learned that both the engine and the fire man 6aw the huge rock falling, but not in time to avert the accident. After strik ing the boulder, the engine was thrown violently against the back, was then slewed around and precipated over a thirty foot embankment to the river, the fireman going down with it. It is reported that the wrecking train fiom St. Louis on way to the scene of the disaster, met with an accident similar to that which befell the passenger train, another large rock falling on the track near Berger, th next station east of Hermann.

The meeting organized by the election of C C. Catron as chairman, and W. A. Berry secretary. The object of the meeting was to estab lish ''The Co-operative Purchasing Association of Missouri." Jt is intended by this organization of mauagers of co-operative stores to take steps to deal directly with manufacturers, thus dispensing as far as may be with the services of middle men. By this combina tion it is hoped and expected that many good results will accrue for the benefit of the stores represented in the association. A constitution and by-laws were adopted, and D. K. Knox, C. C. Catron and S. S. Still were chosen an executive committee. They were instructed to correspond with other mauagers of co-ojerative stores in the stale, and afford them the opportunity of becoming members. There are about fifty co-operative stores in the state. Sev eral managers, not present at yesterday conference, have signified their endorse ment of this organization and their in tention to become members.

Boss Filley Asserts that the Late Meeting of the State Committee was Illegal. Brief Interview with Mr. Albert Parker on the Filley Circular. Some days ago it was announced that by rder of the .Republican State Central Com mittee the state convention to nominate del egates to the national convention and elect a new state central committee would con Tene at Sedalia April 9th. When this an nouncement was made the majority of those who read it were temporarily forget iul of the fact that at the time the last Re publican State Convention was held at Jefferson City, there were serious dissen sions in the party, and that by the mem bers of the Filley wing of the party the convention was not recoguized as legal, and the authority of the state central com mittee selected at that time wa not re ipected by the Filleyites, so called. Since the meeting of the state central committee held at St. Louis on the 14th inst., the Fil leyites have caused to be printed and wide ly distributed a circular, denouncing the state committee, which is designated as the "Van Horn Committee," as illegal and charging that four of the eight proxies present were fraudulent, being held by parties out of their congressional districts. Knowing that this was a matter of con siderable interest not only to republicans but to the people at large, a Bazoo repre sentative last evening called upon Mr. Al bert Parker, who is a member of the so called "Van Horn Committee," and who at tended the meeting of said committee re cently held in St. Louis. Mr. Parker met the reporter in his usual cordial manner and in response to the query if he had seen the circular presumably issued by Filley, replied that he had "There is nothing new in the matter." continued Mr. Parker. "You will remember that in 1882 Mr. Fil ley, who arrogated to himself the direction of the republican party in Missouri, in sisted upon abandoning its organization, and for the sake of a few paltry local offices follow in the wake of a defunct delusion known as Greenbackism. As is well known, the rank and file of the party spurned Mr. Filley's self constituted authority and held a state convention, placed a state ticket in the field and also appointed a state central committee. While it is true that the con vention referred to was not constituted ex actly in the regular way, yet it represented the wishes of the mass of republican voters, as is shown by the vote cast that year. "What have you to say Mr. Parker," asked the reporter, in reply to the charge that there were four illegal proxies in the late joeeting ol the state central committee." "Well, there may be sgmethipg ia tliitt, their "new departure" by first operating in the purchase of two or three leading lines of staple goods. Most of the gentlemen attending the con ference left for their homes last evening. PARKER'S PRANKS. Yesterday morning at 1:15 a fatal acci dent happened to M. F. Dngau, a hrakenian working ou the north end of the K. & T. road and on duty on the freight train of which Wm. Avery is conductor. The ac cident occurred at Harris station, some twenty miles from this city. At the time mentioned the engineer who was slowly backing his train down the track, ran over some object. The train was stopped and the conductor and engineer hastened to the spot where the en gine had passed over the obstruction on the track. To their surprise and horror they found the brakeman, Dugan, lyiug along the track, quite dead. His right arm lay across the rail and was crushed to j pieces. Tne lower part ol nis lace was ter i rihlv mashed and bruised, and it was found his neck was broken. The probable cause of the poor fellow'8 death was this : He was walking by the track, and attempting to withdraw a pin, that coupled the car next to the engine with another car. Stoop ing forward his feet slipped backward on the ice that had formed ou the track, and he fell suddenly face downward, with great force, " his chin striking a tie with suoh violence that it was fear fully bruised and broken. Iis head must have been thrown back with such force and suddenness as to break his neck. In falling he probably extended both arms in the tffbrt to save himself, and his right arm iell across the track and was run over by one car and the engine. The body was placed on the train, brought to this city and placed in charge of Mr. Lesure, undertaker The remains were seen by this writer last evening, acd pre sented a sorry sight, as can well he im agined. The body will h kept where it now lies until directions regarding it can be re ceived from the father of the d-ad brakeman, Mr. Hugh Dugan, liv ing at Palo Alto, Schuylkill county, Pa. A brother of the deceased, John Du gan, lives at Tombstone, Arizona. A mar ried sister. Mrs. Mary J. Quinn, resides at Gallatin, Ohio. The deceased was about twenty-six years ct age, and unmarried. He nas netn in the employ of the K. & T. company since last August, and has been brakeman for Conductor Avery for three months. In speaking of the deceased last night, Mr Avery said he was a first-class railroad man, one of the very best men that the conductor had ever had in a similar ca pacity. He rarely indulged in drink, and never to excess. Mr. Avery spoke in terms of hearty esteem of the deceased aw a brakeman and as a man divorce; judgment by tinned. S.

He brooded over his lost fortune, and in his recent ill ness constantly thought and talked of it.

Constable Hotkamp, of Concordia, was in the city yesterday, armed with a state warrant for one Frank Parker, who is charged with forgery.

BIDDIEr THEBAD BAKER, burn, by whom he said he was employed The Alma merchants had no suspicion of crookedness, and held the check until Mr. Hancock visited the place, only a few days since. When the check was presented to its alleged maker, he at once pronounced it a forgery, whereupon Mr. Kobrinker went before a magistrate and swore out a state warrant for the arrest of Parker, charging him with fo:gery and with obtaining goods under false pretenses. Immediately upon his arrival in the city Constable Hotkamp, consulted Constable Carnes, Deputy Constable Wal lace and Marshal Shy, and a colored man was soon spotted, who is doubtless the forger, but he told the verdant and credu lous constable from Concordia a slick story, and being unable to identify the fel low he returned home without his prisoner. The colored man. whom Marshal Shy says is doubtless the one wanted at Alma, ad mitted that he had worked in that vicinity, but said that his name was not Parker and the name of his emplover was not Hancock. The guileless constable, fearing to take the J responsibility of making an arrest without positive proof, readilv swal lowed the story of the crooked coon, whom the Sedalia officials are pretty sure is now wearing some of the clothing obtained from Kobtink &Co. on the forged check.

Jewelry, Watches, Clocks, Silverware, Jewelry, Watches, Clocks, Silverware, A few dvsago, a man giving his name as George Biddle, and by trade a baker, ar rived in the city, and shortly after his ar rival solicited employment at Armbruster's restaurant, on West Main street. He was informed by Mr. Armbruster that he had no use for a baksr, but he continued to hang around the restaurant, volunteering his assistance in the culinary department, 3nd proving himself an adept as a pastry cook. The stranger seemed to have plenty of money, and secured board and lodging with Armbruster. He remained several days, but one night he shouldered his grip and noiselessly skipped, leaving his board bill, amounting to $3.50, unpaid. The next heard of Biddie was in East Se dalia where he was hanging up at HilPs restaurant. He had almost persuaded Mr. Hili to purchase a bakery in a small town near Sedalia and in fact, it is said that the two made a trip to the town in question with that object in view, but Hill finally suspecting that his new found friend was crooked, gave him the shake. Yesterday an officer from Appleton City arrived in the city in search of BiJdie, who he says is wauted at that place lor forgery. The officer had in his possession a photograph of the slick baker, which those who saw him in this city pronounce an excellent likeness, hut the bird had llown, being hist seen in this city on Friday. The Appleton cop, however, learned that his man had been seen in Green Ridge on Saturday and lost no lime in pursuing the fugitive from justice, taking a south bound K & T. freight train at 11 o'clock yester day morning.

Now comes the announce ment from the Sedalia Bazoo that Rose has ben secured for the season of 1884 by the Peoria Reds, and, in addition to hi.8 duties as pitcher, will act as captain for the club. Young Newton, who bas so ably supported for two seasons past, has also received a proposition to catch for the Peoria nine during 1884, and it is more than likely that he will accept. In the departure of Rose and Newton Sedalia loses two of her best players, and the Gazette congratulates the Peoria Reds on securing their services.
