SCENES OF SORROW. Identifying the Victims of the French Disaster. Horrible Spectacle in the Town Hall at SL Mande, The Charred and Mangled Bodies of the Dead — Official Investigation Places the Blame on an Engineer. rjerlnl to Tm Morn-ing C*l&. Paris, July 27.— The horrors of the rail road disaster yesterday at St. Maude, a town four miles from Paris, is the principal topic of conversation hereto-day. The majority ol the victims were women ana children, and the work ol rescue proceeded slowly during the night. At dawn people began to flock to the scene by thousands, many seek ing friends who bad not returned from the fete. By daybreak there were 20,000 per sons around the station, and the school room and the Town Hall, where the mangled bodies were lying, were besieged by hun dreds ol distracted people. Inside the build in;; ttere was a constant succession of heartrending scenes as the identification of the charred nnd mangled bodies proceeded. Among the Injured sent to hospital a num ber died immediately after admission and ii. any more are expected to succumb. A lIORKIRI.E SPECTACLE. The Town Hall at St. M.«nde presented to-day a fearful spectacle. The blackened bodies were placed in rows upon the floor and tables. In some cases the remains of the recovered bodies were but little more. than a heap of cinders intermixed with por tions of limbs. One pile of charred limbs and human cinders was especially conspicu ous, consisting of a mass of unidentified and unconnected bodies in a heap. About 150 persons were killed or injured in the col lision. Many of the unfortunate people im prisoned beneath the wreck were drowned by firemen, who poured torrents of water upon the burning cars and seemed to be utterly unaware that they were drowning the people they were attempting to rescue. THE CAUSES OF THE DISASTER. Official inquiry into the causes of the acci dent shows that the second train left Viu eeiines Woods at the regular interval of five minutes after the first train. The latter train was delayed at St. Maude, owing to the enormous crowd of excursionists. The station-master at Vincenne3 blames the driver (if the second train for the accident. When this train was starting the station master advised the engineer to go slowly, as there was a train in front of him, but the man paid no heed to this advice and went ahead at full speed. The driver at first alleged that all the signal Indicated that the line was clear, but inquiry confirms the report of the officials at St. Ma:ide and Vin cennes that danger signals were shown. The driver now asserts that he has been the victim of an act of revenge on the part of Borne one, who cut the pipes of the air brakes, thus preventing tliem from bringing the train to a standstill. The official state ment ui:.kes the number of 4ead 43 and toe injured 104. Among the victims are the Marqui3 and .Marquise Montferate. An artillery Lieutenant climbed to the top of one of the burning carriages to rescue a girl, but fell with her into the burning mass kill nether of them was seen again. It is reported that warrants have been Issued for the arrest of the driver of the sec ond train nod the Traffic Manager at Vjn- Cennes Station. Le Paris states that the Investigation into the St. Mande accident has disclosed that the disaster was caused by an unknown miscreant, who deliberately altered the sig- Dals so as to bring the trains into collision.

I he enthusiasm of tho French visitors Is dampened by the absence in the speeches made by the Russians of all reference to the republic. This is explained to them by the statement that the Czar cannot drink to the welfare of democratic institutions, so "Vive la France" is frequently heard from Rus sian lips, but not "Vive la Reuublique."

Berlaud, in conversation with officers of the jail, showed that he resented the re prieve of his mother and was disappointed that she was not to die with him. The woman Borland may be termed the female Fagin of a band of thieves and murderers, whom she trained and directed. THE BLOOD-THIRSTY CROWS. Crowds of people, remained throughout the night In the Place de la Requeue, famous as the, abode of "la guillotine," in anticipation of a feast of blood. The voyous and gamins, cocottes and grisettes were there in force, filling the cabarets, gar gotes and cafes of the neighbo rhood with their baleful songs and vile orgies. The sergeants de ville and agents de surete and gendarmes managed to maintain a praise worthy degree of order. doi:e DIED QUIETLY. Berland walked calmly to the guillotine, but a desperate struggle took place on the scaffold. D .re in. id-, no resistence. When summoned Dore left his cell witli extreme composure, but faltered and trembled as he reached the guillotine, and at sight of its shining knife the murderer became dazed and helpless, and in this condition the executioners helped him to the platform, where they quickly threw him on the bas cule and slid his head into (he lunette, and in a second the knife fell and Bore's head rolled into the sawdust BKBT.AWD'a TERr.IBLE STRUGGLE. Young Berland, when awakened, showed considerable bravado and remarked with a hideous smile: "No more card-playing for me." Berl.ind walked Jauntily across the prison yard anil maintained an air of cool impudence until he re;:c!iod the platform of the guillotine. But just as the executioners were upon th« point of throwing him upon the bascule Berland made a desperate re sistance and a terrible scene took place. In spite of bis struggles, however, the execu tioners aud guards eventually threw him upon the fatal plank, slid his head beneath the grim uprights and his neck was fitted into the lunette, and as the young criminal • whs writhing furiously, the knife fell and Borland's bead rolled Into the bi»ket. No sooner had the heads of the murderers rolled into the basket than the bloodthirsty mob, who had been making night hideous, with a combined, ii.iglity rush, broke through the cordon of in. ops and police, and rushing up to the scaffold, gloated over the blood-staiued apparatus some of the most horrible taking a handful of the sawdust away with them as a souvenir of the execu tion.

Chicago, July 27.— The Journal this even ing, speaking of the incorporatiou of the Tolloston btock-yards Company, says, that while Mr. Armour has been in Europe os tensibly on a vacation he has been in con stant communication with German officials relative to raising tho embargo on the American hog.

Omaha, July 27.— Justice Brewer of the United States Supreme Court this rfiornlng announced a decision in the famous Union Pacific-Rook Islaud bridge case. The de cision is against the Union Pacilic. The Judge holds that the contract with the Bock Island and Milwaukee roads is val'd. KJuslicp Brewer holds, in substance, as fol lows: The contract was signed by the proper i fficers of tlie Union Pacific, ap proved and duly authorized, and was bind ing. It would not operate at present so as to disable the Union Pacific from discharg ing Its duties. It was not compelled by its obligations to the United States Govern ment to hold its Hacks or property beyond the use of any other corporation. To the con tention that the term of contract was ninety-nine years, and beiore it expired the growing business of the Union Pacific would demand the entire possession aud use of all its tracks ami facilities, aud "-U.it the length of term made that void which might have been valid for a few years, the Court held that no one could foresee the future. If a changed condition of affairs twenty years hence should make the full v -i- of the tracks uecessary to the Union Pacific the powers ot a court of equity would bt equal to the emergency. Furthermore, the Gov ernment was not prevented by the contract from stepping iv at any time, when its rights were abused and compiling the Union Pacific to fully discharge its duties. The contract was simply one to convert to a money sur plus the use of a part of the Union ra:ldi! property. In conclusion, tiie Court held that none of the objections v.ere well taken, and that the contract w.is not ultra virus. The Conn further said thai the testimony dis closed the fact that lefi.re the contract was entered into the Rock Island had determine! to build a bridge at Omaha and fill tlie gap between Council 15 1 v 11s and Beatrice by its own line. In connection with tiie Chicago* Milwaukee and 6t. Paul it Had secured a charter from Congre-s, and negotiations were pending to aecure the necessary money to do tlie work. At this point the officers of the Union Pacific sought those of the Kock Island and prevented the building of the bridge Uy means of tlie contract in question. This vra> the Ciiso in question and :he contract of which the court of equity may decree a specific performance. Ifelyiug upon tha contract made by the otlkers of the Union Pacific, who had long experience with rail road property ami distinguished ability as railroad officials, the plaintiff abandoned the plans and negotiations for an independent lint- and expended over a milliou and a hall in building from Omaha to Lincoln. The same considerations require that a like diciee l)e eutered in tin; case of the Chicago, Milwaukee nnu St. Paul. Atthe conclusion of Judge. Brewer's decision Judge Duudy gave liis views, di>s. ntiog entirely fiom the opinion ol his colleague. A conference be tween the principals will be submitted to Justice Brewer ou Wednesday. Gold in Europe. New York, July 27.— A broker is quoted as saying: "The banks of England, France and Germany have increased their stock of cold since April by over $50,000,000. Those banks were able to supply the. demands of their customers then, hence it seems rea sonable to suppose they could allow some thing like $00,000,000 in cold to comeback to the United Mates without seriously dis turbing the foreign money markets. A large proportion of the. gold we i ,tve sent broad has gone to the Bank of France, ami from $10,000,000 to 820.000,000 of the nmoun' we know has gone under mi agreement to' -be returned when wanted."

William Will Not Sail His Yacht in the Coves Regatta. The Empress to Return to Germany—Pres ents to the Royal Household—Con version of Princess Sophia. Special to Tub MoßNiva C*r.t. New York, July 27.— Edmund Yates* special cablegram to the Tribune from Lon don says: It is now very doubtful whether Emperor William will return to E .gland in time for the Cowes week, and it seems more probable when ho comes back from Norway that he will merely put into ll ai wick a few hours and embark the Empress and children for Wilhelmsharen. The Em peror's decision not to enter his racing yacht for the Queen's cup has excited great sur prise at (.'owes, for it Is well-kuown that he purchased the Thistle for the express pur pose of sailing her in this regatta, nnd last April particularly requested to be elected a full member of the Kuyat Yacht Squadron, having been previously only an honorary member, in order that he might be qualified to enter his yacht In the regatta. The Em peror also Intimated his intention of being present at the annual dinner of the mem bers of the squadron, which takes place Tuesday at the Castle, West Cowes, when the Prince of Wales will be in the chair. The German Empress is enjoying herself at Felixetowe. Mid she goes out early every morning, and swimming with her sons, She is left fairly alone, though Felix stowe lias been invaded by daily excursion ists from London. Fortunately the distance from London, and the extremely limited accommodation, have made it impossible for them to get lodgings, so that the evil is minimized. Emperor William's piesents on leaving England are not remarkable either lor beauty or intrinsic value, but the only visit- Inn sovereigns in t!ie history of the British Court, who were really magnificent, both in the number and quality of their gifts, were th« Emperor Nicholas in 1843 and Napoleon 111 in L 865. With regard to the eifts for the different classes of servant* at Windsor and Buckingham Palace, the amount to be left for them was settled by a sort of tiriff, which was drawn up In- order of the Prince Consort, about thirty-five years ago, when It was found that Emperor Nicholas and Napoleon had created an inconvenient pre cedent by the lavish profusion with which they scattered costly jewel?, snuff-boxes and money, as it did not suit many of the royal visitors to be so generous. The German Emperor is morn furious than ever at the to-called conversion of his sis ter, Crown Princess bophia, to the Greek faith. The Holy Synod had decided that the ceremony connected with her reception intuthe Orthodox Church might be restricted to anointing her forehead, but William II learned from a letter which reached him when on the point of leaving Leith that the Patriarch of Constantinople now declares that the Princess must be considered an infi'lel until she undergoes the rite of bap tism In the most extended sense. . The illness of Dom Pedro of Brazil lias been much exaggerated and all possible cause for alarm has now subsided. Count .Minister left Paris for bis family pliice, near Hanover, and is thence going next niDtith to Hamburg and afterward to Berlin.

A. story was told at the Southern by an army officer which goes to show that the) removal of the headquarters of the Depart ment of the Missouri from Fort Leaven worth, Kana., to St. Louis was caused by the playfulness of a dog. Fort Leaven worth, is one of the biggest army posts in the coun try, and the fcliool for cavalry and infantry is located there. While General Merritt Mad his headquarters at the fort General Alex McD. MeCook of " the fighting family ol McCooks," as Cohnel of the Sixth Infantry, commanded the post and was superintendent of the school. General Merritt commanded the Department of the Missouri, and General McCook thought that in the detail of his post General Meiritt felt inclined toexercUa too much of a personal supervision, aud there was constant friction. Finally the climax was attained, and a big St. Bernard dog belonging to Lieutenant Fuller of the Seventh Cavalry caused a rupture between General Merritt and G n eral Jlc'.'oik, which made Fort Leaven worth and its reservation of 7939 acres too small for both to live in. The dog, in a playful mood, jumped upon a lady wlio-sa husband was serving on General Merrill's staff, and, knocking her down, greatly frightened i.er. General Merritt witnessed the incident and heard the scream-; of tint lady. lie forthwith ordered one of the en listed men at headquarters to kill the do?, and for that purpose the man followed tha dnjr into the yard belonging to Lieutenant Fuller's quarters, and there was confronted by the Lieutenant with a Winchester, who said he'd kill the man if he shot at the dog. The man withdrew, and General Merritt re porting tho matter to General McU»nk, tha latter.sustained Lieutcnat Fuller, nnd [iui.it edly told General Merritt he could not act, by proxy or otherwise, as "Grand Maxtor ot his post" And out ot this little epUodctho removal of department headquarters cams about, fur General McCook of Ohio set about getting rid of General M-iritt, and had political influence enough to do it— Globe-Democrat.
