Four Men Killed Bad Accident to a ,Work Train. Chicago, Oct. 18. Iater reports from the great storm which swept the chain of lakes last Friday tend to increase the list of disasters. The missing boats are being heard from fit" all point, and an approximate list of losses can at last be made. Thus far it is known that forty-five people were lost and ten vessels became total wrecks. Twenty-nine more are on the beach or water-logged, and whether they can be saved or not will de pend much upon the weather and their po sition. With these twenty-nine no est mate of losses can as yet be made, but un derwriters deem it probable that at least thirteen of them will become total losses. In addition to this long list of casualties nearly every boat out in the big storm suffered heavy damages, n' t hough they were able to keep afloat ami save them selves from going ou lee shores. Fight More for the Death Kll. From Toledo comes the report that the schooner F. C. Leighton is sunk in Gavely bay. She was owned and sailed by Cap- tain 13en Calhoun, of Clayton X. Y., and he was accompanied on the fatal trip by his wife and S year-old daughter, and Joseph Harlow, son of Captain George Harlow, of Tolod). The list of the crew- is as follows, with a possibility that tLere were changes: James llogan. mate, Clay ton, X. V : lioilfivy Zufchit, Cnuaud.iisua, X. V.: Sam Young, cook, Itochester, X. Y., and Herbert Stake of Ibifi'u'.o. This will make the deal li roll lift y-three and the schooner litilie HicharJs, just arrived at Frie.

Four miles off Parisian Island, in Lake Superior, the spars of a three-master are visible slicking out of the water. She has not been identified, but probably carried six to eight in her crew, which semis the death roll up to sixty. As to money losses, leaving out these last two. the following is a list of lost vessels and their value: Steamer Dean Itichmcnd, $l'iO,0: steamer Wocoken, 5.000; schooner James 1). Saw yer, $34,000; schooner Minnehaha, i4iKK: schooner Hunter, l,tU; schooner oluu teer, $2,000: tug Acme, $i(Ki; vacht En terprise, 1,000; schooner Falconer, ftj.OOO, barge Knight-Templar. 4.000; schooner Johu B. Merrill, $3o.W. Of these the Richmond, Wocoken, and Acme were foundered ami are total losses. The others are stram'led or ashore and the aggregate losses on these and their cargo will exceed fatWttyt'. Th:s is the estimate of a conservative underwriter alter he ha.l gone over the list carefully. To these I li.ru res must next be adite.l Ios-e of not less than ;:.. for tnaior uam.ig inunvt f winch will never be repo.tod lti print.

"Ibeianic among the men lasted but an instant, when the men who were unhurt extricat ed themselves from the tangled up mas of humanity nnd then turned their atten tion to aiding those who were unable to help themselves, the car being soon nipt led and seventeen men being found to be seriously injured. The injuries con sisted of broken anus and legs, cuts on the head aud body and painful burns. One man was ruptured across the stomach and another Lad a cut down his forehead hrough the skull as cleau as though it had been done with a knife. So far as is now knowu no lives will be lost, but it was amhaculous escape from instant death for all. The known injured are: James M. Daffv, contused wound or face and burn on right hand; C. li. Swei gert; incised wound in middle of forehead, probable fracture of skull, and burns on both bands: James Etiglehart, head badly cut. John li.

The result was septic fever, caused by an accumulation of pus. To remove this pus au operation was performed on the captain by Drs. Tallman and Ferger.

Nobody is allowed to see him but his wife and the physicians, and everything is be ing done at the hotel to keep his rooms quiet. It took an hour and a half to perform the operation, and it is now learned that the patient stood it well and is quite hi larious over its success. It will take bim three weeks to recover. The operation consisted iu a thorough cleansing of bis old wound' and it is hoped that it will perfectly heai now. WORLD'S FAIR AUXILIARY. frightful Holler lixplosion. -t. PhTi.Ks'.u 1:1., Oct. is.

The freight train was crossing the track almost at right angles with the approach iug traiu. The crew of the freight train buw their danger in time to jump. The employes of the freight train claim that the danger siguals were set to hold the limited without the block until their train had pulled out of the way. WRESTLED WITH A HOT STOVE.

Cnii Ai.o. Oct. IS. The officials of the Guarantee Investment company, as spon as they heard indictments had been found against them for violation of the anti lottery law, went over to the court and gave bail to appear when wanted. At the offices of the company in the Adams Ex press building matters seemed to be mov ing along as usual. President George M. MacPouald intimated in rather broad terms that the prosecution was just what his company desired. He said that for many months he bad been harassed by life iusurance societies and that the pres ent plan of attack bad originated with them. "This company," he said, '"i about two years old, and from its inception it has been fought by the insurance companies. They have reccgni.ed in the Guarantee Investment company a rival, and they have been seeking by every means possi ble to interfere with and harass us. They have had tl is question of misuse of the mails sprung upon us time and again and we are only too anxious to force the issue to a conclusion aud put an end once and for all to this species of annoyaDce. Of course we are perfectly confident as to tue result of this proceeding in the courts. "The government claims not that the coinpanv is a lolterv but that in the trans action of iis business there enters an tie meiit of chance. Well, perhaps there are elements of chance in this business, but if they come under the provisions of the lot tery act, then all the life insurance compa' nies in the country come under it, too.'; Meantime the government has barred all monev orders payable to the company from the mails, and done what it could to break up the company's business.
