A Passenger Train on the Soo Botfd
Wrecked Near Barrett, Minn.
ELBOW LAKE, Minn., Aug. 2 .—The
west bound passenger on the Soo line,
consisting of three coaches and one
horse car, was wrecked one mile east of
Barrett, about eight miles east of this
place, by the giving away of a bridge
crossing the Pouime de Terre river.
The engine and horse car passed over
safely, but the coaches all went down,
the rear coach going to the bottom of
the river and the others piling on top.
Telegrams wore sent to Elbow Lake
and Glenwood for help. This place sent
down fifty .men. About 200 men were
at the bridge, all doing what they could
toward extricating the wounded and re
moving the dead. The at scene the
wreck was heart-rending. The list of
the dead and seriously wounded, so far
as known, is as follows:

Uhcd—The Work of Kneaa Qolaf on
LONDON, Aug. i.'6.—An explosion,
which, it is feared, may be attended by
enormous loss of life, has occurred at
Aberkenfig1, near Bridgend, in the
county 6f Glamorrgan, Wales. One
hundred and forty-one miners are en
tra^p i c.ial pit owiiur to an explo
sion which shattered th» galleries by
which aifv could have ia:ido their exit,
and is kn:nvn ft their fate.
When the explosion took place a vol
ume of coal dust aroso from thp month
of the pit, and this, along with "the
rumbling noise, gave notice to the in
habitants that something serious had
occurred. Women and children rushed
to the mouth of the pit, crying and
wailing fur the fathers, husbands and
brothers below. The scenes at the
pit's mouth were most distressing,
and efforts were at or.ee made to reach
the entombed tinners to ascertain the
extent of the calamity. Their efforts so
far have proved unsuccessful and the
indications are that the explo on may
have destroyed every life in the mine.
The miners have called on men from
neighboring collieries to assist in the
work of rescue and the most strenuous
exertions are being made to open a way
to the unfortunates below. In several
instances women have gone frantic over
the suspense and some of them have in
sisted on taking part in the work. Many
hundreds of spectators have assembled
from all directions and work is at a
standstill in the vicinity, so great and
general is the anxiety to ascertain
whether those in the mine are alive or

ELBOW LAKF., Minn., Aug. 29.—An
inquest over the Soo wreck of Saturday
has commenced at Barrett. It has de
veloped that the bridge was rotten, and
it is alleged that the company's agents
reported the unsafe condition, which has
teen the talk of the Barrett peeple for
some time. Public feeling is running
high against the company, and the coro
ner's jury is expected to lay the founda
tion for the indictment of the officials.
The coroner has ordered the raking of

A Canadian Scheme to Avoid Paying
Tolls Nipped in the Bud.
WASHINGTON, Aug. O0.—The Cana
dians, with a view of evading the 20
cent tolls to be imposed in accordance
with the terms
of the president's procla
mation on and after Sept. 1 next, on the
Manitoba wheat shipped through St.
Mary's canal, are proposing to evade
the requirements of the proclamation
by shipping in Canadian bottoms from
Duluth to Port Huron to bo trans
shipped from that point by the Grand
Trunk line through Canada. This
matter being brought to the attention of
the treasury department, Assistant
Secretary Spaklipg sent the following
explicit ielegraifl. to the solicitor of the
Grand Trunk railroad company:
Hon. F. E. Medbaugh, Detroit, Mich.:
Neither Manitoba nor dome .ic wheat
can be carried in Canadian bottoms from
Duluth to Port Huron, as it would be in
violation of outcoasting laws. But if
carried in American bottoms it is not
subject to tolls. If carried throught the
canal from Duluth to Samia for con
sumption in or export from Canada via
Montreal or.any other port it would be.

which exists around the headquarters of

would think that the question of select

already been settled. The administra

such satisfaction that Governor Peck
and many of those who led the party to
victory two years ago will undoubtedly
be renominated. This feeling is so
strong throughout the state that none of

FULDA, Minn., Aug. 30.—During^the
evening a farmer named Haberman,
who lives about one mile east of town,
came in and informed the people that
one of his twin girls, about 3 years old,
was lost somewhere on the prairie. The
child went to the road which ran near
the house and with her sister wandered
along the highway from the house about
a quarter of a mile and out of sight of
her parents. A short time after, the
sister of the little girl who is lost re
turned and said, "Julia had gone after
candy." The parents went in search,
but could not find any trace of the child,
but hunted nearly all
day before they
alarmed the town people. Search was
made until dark by a few, but about 100
men went out at daybreak and the
search has been continued by hundreds
of people all day long. Every foot of
the prairies for miles around lias been
carefully examined and searched with
out avail. No trace or clue of the miss
ing child has as yet been found and
night has again

opinion is now quite general that the
child has been abducted.
