DUE TO CARELESSNESS. Railway Catastrophe Near St. Lnoli the Result of Negleet of Order*. ST. LOUIS, Oct. 27.—Shortly before 10 o'clock two passenger trains on the St. Louis and San Francisco railroad, going tn opposite directions, collided near Windsor station, about 13 miles from this city, instantly killing 8 persons and injuring more than 80,3 of whom will probably die. The killed are all of St. Louis. Their names are: Adolph Hohl, engineer of the accommodation train Charles A&>bine, Conrad Kuntz, C. C. Blevins, H. Thall, Barney Mc Kenna, in charge of the refreshments Miss Maud McKenna, aged 14, his -daughter, and John Cartwright. The collision occurred between the second section of an excursion train bound west and the 'Frisco Valley Park accommodation. From what can be learned the acci dent was the result of disobedience or neglect of orders on the part of the ex cursion train crew, ^'ho should have remained at Spring Park for orders and to have let the accommodation through. CONDITION OF FUSION. Democrats, Populists and Silver RepaMi csna Cemb.ning on Elector*. CHICAGO, Oct. 27. —The Republicans have a straight electoral ticket in 44 of the 45 states, having effected a fusion in Texas with the middle-of-the-road Populists and gold standard Democrats. The Democrats have a straight elec toral ticket in only 15 of the states, having effected a fusion with the Pop ulists and silver Republicans in 29 of the others, a conclusion not having yet been reached in the remaining one. In some cases the Populists and silver Re publicans endorsed the Democratic electoral ticket, but in others conces sions of electors were made to them for their support of Bryan and Sewall. In two states, Oregon and South Dakota, the Democrats endorsed the Populi electoral ticket. Of the 447 electors to be chosen the Democratic ticket con tains 868 Democrats, 74 Populists and 5 silver Republicans. ioan( yaees'i First Cennulta, THE HAGUE, Oct. 27.—Queen Wil helmine took her first communion Sun day in the presence of her mother, the queen regent, the court, civil and mili tary officials and a large concourse of people.

B: ilroad Attorney Xittretire and Hii Little Satelitea Try to Win a Cam paign by Wind and Money—Bluff® 1 Galled and the Gold Buga Back Down—Kit, Olough, et al. The Yanktoh Prees of the 23rd inst. gives a very interesting account of National gold-bug Committeeman Kit tredge's betting experience in Yankton Inst week. It seems Mr. Kittredge real ized. and that the Yaukton boys also realized, that the Black Hills counties were going for Bryan and to stem the tide of enthusiasm that would flow from this knowledge he went over to Yankton to do a big lot of bluffing taking $1,500 of the oampaign funds with him. He had been advised that the Bryan men of Vankton bad no money and bis ad venture would be perfectly safe. Thurs day morning be started out with his propositions and his money was covered in a short time. Three 1100 bets had been snapped up in short order. Mr. Kittredge felt a trifle disappointed. He wasn't preparted for such work, but it was only the beginning of his troubles* A fourth party came forward with an other 1100, and in this way $4U0 was banked. By this time the Bryan boys began to accumulate their shekels for another raid but Mr. Kittredge bad hied away to republican headquarters and buried himself. It was getting late in the afternoon but the boys dug him out. A veritable gold mine had been opened by tke Bryan men, and they had nre pa red a dose for the national committee man that was to prove the hollowness ot bis professions. He had put up $400 of his $1,500, and now the boys wanted the rest of it. They proposed another $100 bet, and theu a $1,000 bet, $500 to be put up last evening and the remainder on Saturday. This was just the amouut Kittredge started in a (ew hours before to bet on the Black Hills. Finally Kit tredge was cornered and he took the $100,^but declined tbe other propoeition until he oould Bee somebody. No amouut of urging oould provoke the leader of McKinley's forces in South Dakota to a further display of the coafi denoe" with which he had been "inspired a few hours before. His effort to "corner public sentiment" had cost him $500. And public sentiment was in mueh worse condition for MoKinley than when Mr. Hanna's agent began his work. So much for the campaign of boodle in this oorner of the vineyard. There must have been a preooooerted movement on other points of the state in Mr. Kittredge's plan of boodle bluffing for it was that identical Thursday morn ing, if we remember rightly, that State Committeeman Charles J. Porter of this oity intimated to Wm. Tobin that there were parties in this city who would like to put up $1,000 against a third that amount that McKinley would oarry tbe state. Mr. Tobin had faith enough in the sucoees of Mr. Bryan in this state to risk $333^ on tbe issue and called Mr. Porter's bluff. Porter gave Dr. A. E. Clougb as the fortunate possessor of so much filthy lucre to be put up for oam paign buncombe, and Mr. Tobin run down Dr. Clougb who declared he was ready. Mr. Tobin deposited his $333% •y—*—y- -«ii—* «rr -iter •iit— V W •r' ti hi A y 4 y A y A y A |L y 4 N y -A in Daly A: Mackay's bank and waited un til the nest morning for Dr. Clough to put up his money. It, was not foitb coming and Mr. Tobin "razood" the bumptious doctor on his tardiness. The latter then confessed he did not have tie money himselr. but thought he could find a man in the stato or in Chicago who would cover" the bet. Mr. Tobin doubted the sincerity of the challenge but desiring to secure the bet if possible gave the bluffer until Monday evening to produce the thousand dollars. Last night the money had not been put up and to-day Mr. Tobin reluctautly with drew his stake. This is a fair sample of tbe kind of argument the republican manage}* and leaders are Uting all over this country to deceive voters as to their real strengrh and it is such as can not be endorsed by any conscientious voter who is desirous of seeing this great issue decided on its merits. For this kind of campaigning, officially participa ted in and endorsed by the gold bug managers and leaders, the whole gold republican party ought to be consigned to eternal oblivion. If such a policy wins what has this country to expeot in th* future? Speed and safety are the watchwords of the age. One Minute Cough Cure nota speedily, sarely and never fails.
