Cir cus Train Come Together With Fearful Results Three Iowa Men Among the Killed. DURAND, MiclK A a:r brake on the second section of Wallace Bros.' circus train refused to work in the Grand Trunk railway yards here Fri m day, causing a collision between the two sections, in which twenty-three people were killed and thirty .injured. The circus travels in two trains of about thirty-five cars each.1 ...After Thursday night's exhibition at Char lotte the two trains left for La Pore, over the Grand Trunk road, the sec ond sect t ion leaving a half hour after tho first. It was .'5:45 when the first beet ion pulled into the west end of the Grand Trunk yaj-ds here. A red light was hung oa the rqar car to stop the second section. Engineer Probst of Battle Creek, who was running the engine of the rear train, says he saw Uiis light and applied the air brakes. To his horror they refused to work. He reversed his engine, but the momentum of the train behind him was too great and with a crash that aroused the town the two trains met. ' Tfiree cars of the stationary fflrst . section were telescoped and the en gine and five cars of the moving train were demolished. The rear ca'r of the first section was a caboose in which the trainmen v. ere sleeping and the next two cars were filled with sleep ing circus employes. The greatest loss of life was in the caboose. One of the wrecked cars of the second section was occupied by five elephants and several camels. One of the elephant and two of the camels were killed outright, while the other elephants and their trainers escaped. With the exception of this car none of the menagerie was wrecked, the other wrecked cars containing the wagbns. As soon as they recovered from the first shock the trainers rushed among the cages quieting the beasts .that were excited. The elephants in the wrecked car behaved with surprising calmness and were led out of the Vreck without trouble.1 -. The escaping steam and screams nd cries of those pinned in -the wreck was a horrible spectacle in the gray of the early morning; wjien the train men in the yards and the aroused townspeople first reached the scene. '.Many feared at first that some of the animalshad escaped, as they could be beard crying. The fire whistle, was immediately sounded and tho whole town aroused. The rescuers could see the unfortunates through the tangled JR'reckage. When the wrecking train crews nan finished pulling to pieces the tangled aqd broken carp," seventeen dead men were lying on .the grass awaiting removal to the morgue. A niajority of them 'were killed 'while asleep. The circus performers' were on the rear of the moving train and escaped injury. Wallace brothers say that their loss will be very heavy, but" can give no estimate yet This is the second wreck that the Wallace shows have suffered within a month. Engineer Propst. Fireman Colter and Head Brakeman Benedict, who was on the engine of the second sec tion, all agree that if the brakes had worked as they should when the en gineer tried to use them there would have beeen no collision. Prelate for Privy Council. LONDON According to the Chron icle it is not impossible that the king's Irish visit will result in the appoint ment ot Archbishop William J.

Although not espousing any partic ular candidacy, official feeling has been favorable to one who would con tinue the conservative policy of the late pope. British Take Optimistic View.

PIUS IS RUNG IN FIVE HUNDRED CHURCH BELLS IN ACTIVITY. CORONATION COMES SATURDAY Great Preparations Being Made for the Same Pope is to Be Received on the Threshold of the Basilica by Cardinal Rampolla. ROME The attention of Rome' Is centered in the cerfimony of Satur day, and for which great prepara tions are being made. The throne of St Peter, which Plus X will occcupy, will be surrounded by a canopy forty feet high. The pope has informed the Vatican officials that he wishes to be received on the threshold of the basilica by Cardinal Rampolla, who, as arebpriest of the church, will address the formal greetings to him. At the conclusion of the ceremony the pope will confer his blessing upon the people, but it has not yet been decided whether he will do so inside the cathedral or from the balcony looking out upon the piazza, where many hoped he would bestow his ben ediction on the day of his election. It is said that Pius X is in favor of the latter plan, but the influence of the Vatican officials is against it, on the ground that it might be interpret ed as a recognition of the present state of affairs in Italy. The holding of the coronation ceremonies in St. Peter's itself represents a concession, as in the case of Leo it occurred in the Sistine chapel. Although it is es timated that 60,000 tickets will be is sued for the event, the demand for them is very great. At the consistories to be held Mon day and Thursday next, the pope will confer the red hat on Cardinals Ajuti, Taliani, Katschtaler and Herrero y Espinosa, who were raised from the purple June 25, but who have not re ceived these symbols of rank because of the illness and death of Leo'. It is believed that the Spanish Cardinal Herrero will not be able to be pres ent at the coronation ceremonies. During one full hour Thursday morning there seemed to be nothing but vibrating sounds, so penetrating were the strokes of- the bells of about 500 churches, which, all ringing to gether, absorbed all other noises. The ringing was in honor of the election of Pius X a welcome unique of its kind, and ordered ay Cardinal Res phigi, vicar of Rome, who issued spe cial instructions therefor. All the churches contemporaneously celebrat ed masses for the event, the intoning of the Oremus combining with the harmony. The bells involuntarily served an other purpose, that of ringing in the great ceremony of the reception of the diplomatic body accredited to the holy see. Rome has lately been sur feited with Vatican functions, but that of Thursday morning was so striking that it held its own with the others. Cubans Claim American Soil. SANTIAGO, Cuba Some engineers who were surveying a site for a ter minal of the Cuban Eastern railway on the United States naval reserva tion at Guantanamo were warned off by American officers, but refused to go.

How the Newly Elected Pope is Re garded. ROME. Cardinal Sarto, the new elected pope, enjoys great popularity in his diocese, and is honored, by all for his purity, for the strict upright ness of his life, and for 'liberal ideas. He is a modest and agreeable man, highly cultivated, very kind hearted, still strong and robust in spite of his 68 years. He has never taken great part in the. political and public life of the church, but divided his time between study and good works. Although most faithful to the Holy See, he was presented to the king and queen of Italy in Venice. He may be considered among the more liberal members of the Italian episcopate and sacred college. He is rather timid in expressing an opinion. It is, said that Leo XIII always thought very highly of him, and sided with bim on one oc casion when Sarto disapproved of Rampolla's policy. He has been known for many years as one of the greatest preachers in the' church. While Prince Chigi. the master of the conclave, was drawing up the offi cial act of the election and acceptance of the newly elected pope, the latter, surrounded by his friends, disappeared into a small room near the altar, where he donned with feelings of triumph and humility the white robes of his office. Pius X was assisted by his conclavists, who first knelt and ki3scd his master's hand and thus received the first apostolic blessing given by Pius X. The new pope was attired all in white, with the exception of red shoes, which was quite regular, but he did not stop to remove the red cardinal's stockings for the white papal one3, and these showed as he raised his gown to move forward. When he was quite robed, the sec retary of the conclave, Mgr. Merry del Val. kneeling, offered him the papal white cap, amid breathless silence. He did not follow precedent created by Pope Leo, who declined to give his red cap to the master of ceremonies, as a sign that he would scon be cre ated a cardinal, but with a slight smile, Sarto took the white cap, placed it calmly on his head and dropped th red one lightly on the head of Mgr. Merry del Val, amidst a murmur of approval. This was taken as a cer tain indication that the happy recip ient is to be raised to the cardinalate. UNION PACIFIC IS PROSPEROUS.

The import 'figures Indicate that there has been no material 'change in the volume of this class of trade as compared with the previous year, the gain being confined exclusively to an increase in exports, principally hemp and copra, both of which products doubtless will be shipped in large quantities for some time to come. The prospects for greater exportation of sugar and tobacco, especially the lat ter, are good. GERMANY LIKES NEW POPE. Election of Ssrto Proves Very Accep tably BERLIN The election of Cardinal Sarto as the new pope was mado known here at 1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, through extra editions of the newspapers, which were eagerly read. The Foreign Office at that hour had no confirmation of the news, but re garded it as probable, it having been learned that Sarto had strongly in creased his vote yesterday. Replying to the question whether the election was acceptable to Germany, a repre sentative of the foreign office an swered: "Unqualifiedly so from an omcial view point. Sarto is a mild manner man and has never been active polit ically." In other quarters, it was remarked that Sarto is the pnly Italian cardinal whom the kins of Italy received. His repeated visits to the king and his aversion to politics are regarded as an auspicious eign for the triple al liance. NEW SLUMP IN EXCHANGE. U. P., Wabash, Mo. P. and Maple Leaf Make Low Records.

NEW POPE REIGNS CARDINAL SARTO ELECTED Oft SEVENTH BALLOT ASSUMES HIS TITLE AT MKE Announcement of Choice Being Made Received with Great Enthusiasm- He Appeared Outside of the Baeilica and Blessed the Populace. ROME. Cardinal Sartr., patriarch of Venice, has been elected pope. Cardinal Macchi, secretary of apos tolic briefs, announced to the crowd assembled before St. Peter's that Car dinal Sarto hfd been elected pope, and that he bad taken the name of Pius X. The-troops on duty Imme diately lined up on tho pfazza and pre sented "",- , ... ,, x , Announcement of Cardinal Sarto's election was received with wild en thusiasm by thousands of people who had gathered outside of SL Peter's. The scene within the basilica when, the pope pronounced his benediction, was one of unparalleled excitement and enthusiasm. Thousands of per sons within the cathedral cheered and waved their hats. Ten minutes after 12 o'clock Pope Pius X appeared inside the balcony of the basilica and blessed the popu- f lace, amid the acclamations of- the enormous crowds assembled upon the piazza. Pope Pius X, who was Cardinal Giuseppe Sarto, the patriarch of Venice, was at one time regarded as Pope Leo's personal choice for the succession to the chair of St. Peter. His name suddenly sprang into prom inence a year ago in connection with the names of Rampolla, Vannutclli and Gotti, as cmong the cardinals most apt to win the high place. He was born in 1835 and made patriarch in 1891, being proclaimed cardinal two years later. He is a great preacher and fairly well known as a writer, and he has the reputa tion of accomplishing all the works that he has undertaken. He is a member of the congregations of Bish ops and Regulars, Sacred Rites, In dulgences and Sacred Relics and Studies. Cardinal Sarto, prooably the most able administrator of the Italian epis copacy, combines firmness and deter mination with abundant tact and com mon sense, and has managed to in augurate a number of very practical reforms in his archdiocese of Venice without giving offense either to the clergy or to the laity. He avoids all newspaper notoriety. Indeed, his name is rarely mentioned in the press. He has always under stood how to maintain an agreeable, yet dienifled "modus Vivendi" with the Italian authorities, from which he derives his stipend, and has shown his enlightenment by the vigorous cam paign which he has carried on against the veneration of relics of question able authenticity. He is on friendly terms with the members of the reigning house of Italy; during the late reign took part with King Humbert and Queen Mar gherita in the launching of a man-of-war, at Venice, as well as in other ceremonies at which they were pres ent, and would certainly be a most agreeable choice as, pope to the pres ent ruler of Italy.
