Freight Train Brought to Standstill by Bock-Boring Mollnsks. Syracuse, N. Y., June 2. As the train going to the large limestone quarries, near Brighton Corners, last night, approached an electric light that bung over a deep cut, a dark, moving mass, extending about sixty feet along the track, was observed. The engineer hesitated a moment, but not being of an investigating turn of mind determined to plow through the obstruction. As the wheels rolled over tbe mass, a loud, crackling sound, like the successive explosions of toy torpedos, came from beneath the engine. The progress of the en' gine became slower, and soon the driving wheels began to slip upon the rails and the train came to a stop. An examination revealed the pres ence of swarms of a peculiar insect, which bore a resemblance to the electric light bug, so well known in these parts, though the multitudinous pos sessors of the track were somewhat larger, the outer shell of the back being about the size and shape of half a shanghai egg-shell. It was this turtle-like armor that gave forth tbe crackling sound. The shell is black and partakes of the nature of stone. An examination of the quarry showed small holes bored in the sides, which were apparency the habitation of some insect, and the kind found upon the track are believed to be a species oflithodome or rock-boring mollusk. Those who claim to know see in these the shadow of a hot coming summer and the precursor of the arrival of the dreadful electric bug. lo secure the shipment of the stone it was necessary to let the loaded tram from the quarry above come down the track with a momentum sufficient to plow a thor oughfare.

Head End Collis ion on the Emporia Branch Yesterday Afternoon. Engineer John Wicks Scalded to Death and Three Other Train 0 men Injured Their Ar rival in Sedalia. Yesterday afternoon, at Hart ford, a small station on the Emporia division of the M., K. & 1. railway, a head end collision occurred, result ing in the fatal scalding of Engineer John Wicks and dreadful injuries to three other trainmen. The southbound passenger train with Engineer Charles Howlett at the throttle, ran on to a switch on which a north bound freight train, the en gineer being John Wicks, was stand ing. Both locomotives were com pletely demolished and several of the freight cars telescoped. Wicks was frightfully scalded by the escapiag steam, until the skin literally peeled off his legs, arms and back. He also inhaled a large quantity of the steam aud he was thoroughly roasted within and without, but di.l not die at the scene of th e frightful wreck. Engineer Howlett's right arm was dreadfully crushed at the elbow and will likely have to be amputated. Robert Clougbley was a fiieman on the passenger train and bad his left arm badly broken. Win. Cary "fired on the freight train and also had one of his arms badly broken. The injured men arrived here this morning in a special car attached to the regular train from the south. Between Windsor and Green Ridge Engineer Wicks breathed his last. He was surrounded by his wife and chil fren, who nside at Parsous, and who accompanied the ho ly to Sedalia. Undertaker Hillis, with his wagon, and Chief Surgeon Yancey, with the M. K. fc T. hospital ambulance were in waiting at the Kentucky street crossing, where a crowd oi men ana boys and a few women bad gathered, awaiting the arrival of the train. First the body of Engineer Wicks was taken out and placed in the undertaker's wagon. Upon being stripped at Hillis rooms, it presented a horrible s'lrlit. ihe body had uceu swathed in cotton aud when this was removed, great flakes of rkin peeled off hi: back, arms and legs, leaving them absolutely raw and as red as a lobster that you see on a restaurant tib:e, With the exception of inhaling the steam, which directly caused his death, the engineer was not otherwise in jured. He was a handsome man of about 35 years and compactly built. The pallor of death had not gathered on his features yet, and he seemed onlv asleep. After some delay, the crippled men, looking pale and haggard, and with their arms in bandages and slings, were placed in the ambulance and driven to the hospital, where Chief Surgeon Yancey, Doctors McNeal aud Sbadburne and a corps of nurses at once took them in charge and at tended to their needs. Engineer Wicks was an experienced railroad man, was a resident of Par sons and leaves a wife and five chil dren to mourn his tragic and untimely taking off. The other three men are also resi dents of Parsons and heads of families. The liody of Wicks has been em balmed and placed in a handsome casket. Accompanied br the widow and her children and several railroad friends, it will be shipped this even ing to Parsons for interment The deceased was a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and was fully insured in that order. bmce writing tbe above, it was learned that the dead engineer was chief of his division of locomotive en gineers. He was also a Templar. Knight lms afternoon Master Mechanic b. P. Weller received a telegram from Dr. G. W. Gabriel, mayor of Parsons and also eminent commander of Couer de Leon commandery Knights Tem- plar, instructing him to lend all nec essary. A meeting ot engineers was held at their division hall, corner Ohio and Fifth streets this afternoon, and suit able arrangements were made for the funeral, lhey and the local com mandery Knights Templar will prob ably escort tbe remains to tbe depot.

George Hudson Arrested for an Assassination at Joplin. Joplin, Mo., June 3. George Hudson of Granby, Mo , wjs arrested at Neosho. Mo., last evening on bench warrant issued by Circuit Judge McGregor of Jasper county, charging him with killing Dr. L. G, Howard at Joplin. three veara ago, Between 7 and 8 o'clock ou the night of September 13, 1886, Dr. L. G Howard was assassinated at the corner of Third and Main (streets. Howard was shot from the side and rear, the ball passing through his brain. The assassin walked across Mai a street with his pistol in hand and disap peared east oa Ibird street. Many persons were on tbe streets at tbe time and perhaps twenty saw the murderer. Un der the excitement of the moment these persons gave varying deicrip' tions of the mm. The weight of public opinion was that tbe ass issina- tion resulted trom a scanuai involving several married women of some social standing in Joplin. Howard was dentut, of Spanish buth, quite a soc lety man and very polite and anable. Jealousv amongst Howards illicit adorers led to crimination aud re crimination among the trio, and scandal shockingly explicit as to de tails set tbe social sea in a wild fo ment. Following these disclosures airue the murder. Tbe grand iurv and local officers worked on the case, but never se cured evidence to warrant an arrest. Persons familiar with the circumstan ces leaned to the theory that the act was committed by a hired assassin employed by some of the husbands of the women involved in the scandal. Hudson is known throughout South west Missouri as a desperado, lie has killed sevetal men in Granby, but es caped legal punishment through thi terrorism that be and his confederates enforced in Newton county. 'After being handcuffed Hudson attempted to use a revolver he bad secreted in side bis vest in front, tie is now in jail at Carthage. The chain of evi dence is said to be complete and as tbe circuit court is now in session the arraignment will follow at once. WeEUtErS WINE OF CAROU. for WczkKeiTO. A CORRESPONDENT KILLED.

A Formal Unveiling of a Monu ment to Their Memory in Mississippi. Jackson, Mirs., June 3. Five years of disinterested labor and effort on the part of tbe womem of Mississippi culminated to day iu the formal unveiling of the mouumeut to the Confederate dead of Mississippi. It is a big day for the ex-Con'ederates, their wives and son3 and daughters. Not only are they here from every hid and dale ot Mis sissippi, but every Southern state has its representation, some small and others large. Nor is the South alone participating in the jubilation of the day fur several tstern and Western states are represented, Iowa especially having a large contingent. Scores of special trains arrived here in the night und morning, an almost un broken stream of people has poured out from the depot up the turnpike road to tbe little town. Tbe total number of outside visitors is variously estimated at from fifteen to twenty thousand. Early this morning a re ception was tendered to tbe Confeder ate veterans at Capitol Buiiding. They were there in force and many comrades clasped hands who had not met since the close of the war. There were greetings, warm and cordial and many anecting scenes were en acted Among tbe prominent veterans present were : Governor Gordon, of Georgia, Commander of the United Confederate veterans; General E. Kirby Smith, of Manassas fame , Gen eral Cabe 1, a former Virginian but now of Texas : Brigidier General J M. Billups, and Governor St-me, of Mississippi : General J. A. Smith Colonel W. D. Holder, and scores of others of lesser and greater renown At half past 10 o'clock on the moment the big bell of the court bouse rang cut tbe signal for the bead ot tbe procession to move, ten companies of the Aussasippi National truaru wheehd around the corner and up tbe broad avenue Behind the last com pany, and dnwn bv ten white hors-s came a float carry' ine fifteen young ladies represent ing the Southern Confederacy and the different states which composed it. Each bore aloft a beautiful banner with tbe names of the different states handsomely embroidered upon the center. Every one was the daughter ot alyontederato veteran, end every one was more than fair to look upon being regarded as a belle in her par ticular state. It was a magnificent tableau and the cheers and rebel veils that greeted the float as it passed from block to block were deafening. These were the fair representatives: Miss Annie Stone, representing "The Con federacy carried a regular battle flag. Miss Kate Porter, Maryland, blue banner Miss Coriane H. Sykes, North Carolina, red banner. Miss Annio Hemingway, South Carolina, white banner. Miss Mary Dandy, Georgia, white banner. Miss Elise Govan, Florida, blue banner. Misz Nellie Fewell, Alabama, blue banner. Miss Marian Lowiy, Mississippi. white banner. Miss Mary Belle Morgan, Louisiana. whit9 banner. Mits Caroline K. Martin, Texas, red banner. Miss Virginia Hunt, Ar kansas, red banner. Miss Sallie Cowan, Tennessee, red banner. Miss Annabell Power, Kentucky, red banner. Miss Annie L. Stone, Mis souri, blue banner. Next to the float came the officers of the Ladies' Monument Association, the organiza tion under the auspices of which the monument had been erected. They were heartily and vociferously cheered at every point. Then came distin guished visitors from abroad, and confederate veterans iu carriages, or ganized posts of confederate veterans, and organized posts of Sons of Con federate veterans. Ihe line of m&rch was through the principal streets to the monument In all the procession was two miles in length. 1 he side walks throughout that distance were packed with people and volleys of cheers ran from block to block. The stars and stripes were carried at the bead of every division and likewise floated from the top oi the capital. Side by side with them were carried many torn and tattered Confederate battle flags which bore testimony to the bitter conflicts through which they had been borne. A baker's tdozen of brass bands furnished march ing music Now it was the Star Spangled Banner, then again Yankee Doodle, then Dixie, The Girl I Left Behind Me, Maryland my Maryland, and other kindred confederate war songs. Twenty-one Mississippi mili tary companies and ten companies from other states, figured in the pro cession. When the grand stand was reached the confederate divisions, pro ceeded by the officers of the Ladies Association, took their position at the head of the column. The exercises were opened with a fervent invoca tion pronounced by Rev. Father F. A. Picberet, a distinguished Catholic priest of Vicksburg, and a confeder ate veteran who had served through the war as a chaplain. The monu ment, which up to this time had been draped in white muslin, was then for mally unveiled, amidst prolonged ap plause, while the combined bands rendered the Star Spangled Banner and Dixie. Senator E. U. Walthall, upon being introduced was re ceived with loud and prolonged ap plause. His oration upon "The Con federacy" was a complete history of the war from inception to close. He received clese attention and repeated applause. When he concluded, Mrs. Luther Msnship recited with stirring effect a poem by tbe Kev. Father Ryau, S. J., entitled "The Sentiuel Songs." Then Governor Lowry followed with a brief oration on the life and character of Jefhrson Davis in the course ot which he said that when partisanship bad given Elace to sober reason and judgment, istorians would accord the late pres ident of tbe Confederate states a front rank among the great statesman of his day, as well as of th se who bad preceded him. He contended that his great and varied talents, attested by his many able state papers aud by bis many other deeds showed that he was both a scholar and c statesman, and the writers of history hereafter would be compelled to assign him to that exalted place. At the conclu sion of Governor Lowry'a oration the bands rendered America and Maryland my Maryland, and with the pronouncing of the benediction by the Rev. Dr. H. F. Spioles, pastor of the First Baptist church of this city, the exer cises were brought to a conclusion. After the benediction the large crowd dispersed in search of somethiug to refresh the inner man. The town was taxed to its utmost capacity, and but for the fact that the ladies of the churches had established eating booths, and that their efforts had been supple mented by private enterprise, thou sands of visitors would have been compeded to remain hungry. As it was everyone managed to get some thing to eat. Many of the veterans came prepared in regular war style, bringing provisions and blankets with them. This afforded much relief to the overtaxed town. One of the con spicuou3 features of the parade was the absence of all attempts at uniforms by the veterans. A DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. Los Angeles, Cal., June 2. One of the most destructive fires in the history of Los Angeles occurred yes terday. Flames were noticed comioer out of the rear of the Norton block, a tour story frame apartment building on the corner of Seventh and Hill streets. An alarm was at once turned in, but before the engines could reach the spot the fire bad gained such a headway that it was impossible to con trol it and in less than half an hour the block was entirely destroyed. A small frame cottage back of the Nor ton block was also destroyed and an adiacent bouse on Hill street. A two story dwelling was partially burned. The flames were swept east on Seventh street, totally destroying a two story frame dwelling and the church of the Trinity, a handsome edifice. Further progress of the flames was checked at this point by a vacant lot. A high wind was prevailing at the time, but after vigorous work of about an hour the flames were gotten under control. The Lanekeersheim flats, at the corner of Seventh and Broadway, were badly damaged and bad a narrow escape from destruction. Total loss is about 3100,000, on which there is comparatively little insurance. P. JOHNS. S.P. W. M. JOHNS. JOHNS & SON, LUMBER Are r reps red to give estlm'tes oa mill work.
