Terrible Wreck on the Ohio and Pennsyl vania Kailroad—Forty Persons Killed. A careful compilation of the building and other improvements in Sioux City, Iowa, for the your 1887, made by the Daily Journal, presents a most gratifying showing. It is the grandest exhibit ever made in the history of Sioux City, and is excelling the best record ever made by an Iowa city. The total expenditures for 1887 in building improvements is $2,854, 85G, against $1,292,528 for 188G, the best record previously made iu Sioux City, or an increase of 112 per cent. The total expenditure in 1S85 was §1,024,471 in 1884. S98D.:U)5 in 188:). $tiG0,94!: in 1882, §037.321: in 1881, *."*.58.210, and in 1880, $'257,085. This is a record of growth, at once steady and rapid, which is the very antipodes to the inflated and unstable thing known iu common parlance as a "boom." Rllie the train A in the States: Illinois -No cholera 4K counties some cholera in 211 counties. Cholera very bad in 7 counties. Xo g'an ders reported, but distemper reported anions horses in 0 counties. AVisconsiu No cholera in 2i counties ono county re ports a little cholera,another considerable. Two counties report glanders, with one case in each county. Tweutv-six counties report no glanders. Michigan—Twenty three counties report no cholera :S counties report some cholera, and one county re ports considerable cholera. No glanders reported, but one county reports dis temper and one county an unknown disease among horses. Indiana—Twenty eight counties report no cholera Hi counties report a little cholgra. No glanders or distemper reported. Iowa —Eighteen counties report no cholera thirty-three counties report some cholera! aud six counties report that the disease ia bad. A few cases of glanders are reported by four counties, some distemper by two counties and no glanders ia eighty ono counties. Minnesota—Fortv-six counties report no cholera three counties report a few cases of glanders. Kansas—Thirty seven counties report no cholera: fourteen counties report some cholera, and six coun ties considerable cholera. Three counties report a few cases of glanders. Nebraska Thirteen counties report no cholera ten counties report some cholera, and eight considerable. Nine counties report glan ders, and twenty counties report no glan ders. Dakota—Twenty counties report no cholera live counties report glanders, and fifteen report no glanders." It is a record, on the whole, and covering period of seven years, which demonstrably involves behind it potent and enduring causes. Not only does the record of 1887 in gen eral surpass that of the previous year, but the inference is equally gratifying in what ever detail comparison is yet made. Every item of expenditure exceeds that of 188(i. Thus in 1887 there were of new buildings 503 against 309 in 1880 of total build ings enlarged 110, against 98 iu 1886 busi ness houses, $503,894. against §477,575 manufactories, §710,500. against $8(5,110 in 1886 public and municipal improve ments, $1,180,075. against, $407,103 in 1880 new dwellings. $377,877, agaiust $282,200 iu 1880 miscellaneous, $03,910, against- $39,175 in 1880. The most gratifying item in tho record of 1887 is the large amount of expendi tures for "manufactories." which includes the expenditures on account of tlie Sillier horn and Fowler packing-houses. It is the more gratifying from the fact of the suggestiveness of these expenditures for 1888. the former house being only barely completed for operation and the latter not quite ready for operation. It is an ex penditure which is like, good a dozen or more baskets of flowers of every variety, was a large blue vase filled with Jacqueminot, and Maresehal Niel roses. \mong these rested a square visiting card, on one side of which was engraved "Mrs. •Cleveland," tho reverse bearing, in her •handwriting: "For Dear Mr. Corcoran. On this day which completes 90 beautiful years. seed as they the $1,500,000 which spoken of, and Mr. Corcoran said be used to enjoy horseback riding, but he had been unable to take that kind of exercise for twelve years. "I think," he went on "that Mr. Bancroft is too old to ride on horseback, and I tell him so, but I believe that he does not agree with me." And Mr. Corco ran laughed as if he was not at all offended at his old friend'S independence. purport to do, actual expenditures during tlie year .of 1887. They do not. for instance, include the ex penditures which will bo made, for the. un finished portion of the Fowler packing house, although they will be made within A few days, and where contracts extend be yond 1887 the unfinished portion is rele gated to 1888, where it belongs, as is also will be expended in the building of the Northwestern bridge across the Missouri, now in course of con struction and which will be completed by December 1888.

The two trains, the express running forty-five and the freight fif teen miles an hour, met on a long forest hidden with a terrible crash. The engine of the express train and the first engine of tlie freight raised bodily in the air and stood on the furnace ends, tlie pilots pointed upwards and the driving wheels locked. Both engineers and fire men were pressed beneath the iron ruins, the sight, was sickening. The baggage car telescoped into the smoker, splitting it open and sweeping every seat from the floor. total number of passengers on was fifty three, fifteen of whom were in the smoker.
