the last car of the accomodation train,
which was crossing the track : of the
Southern Express and was bit full in the
middle by the engine of that train,
mashing it to piece. Passenger on
the express train were uninjured. The
accident was due to the lipery con
dition of the track, making it impossible
for the engineer of the express to control
the traiu. Four were killed and ten
injured, none dangerously.

Lohdok, Feb. 22. Princes Kaiauiaoi,
heiress to the throne of Hawaii, sailed
today for New York on the steamer Teu
tonic. The prince is accompanied by
Theophalu Iavies, wife and daughter,
and by Miss Warloff. Her residence in
England ha heretofore been kept a
secret, but Davits, after repeated re
quests, consented to permit a corrapond
ent to have an interview with the prin
cess at his residenee.
Princess Kaiaulani ia tall and slender,
with a more thoughtful deliberate air
than might be expected in a school girL
She is a brunette, with eye of a gaxelle
and features that snggest a suspicion of
Kanaka origin. She was somewhat
nervous during fhe interview. She said
ah had nothing to add to the appeal
which she had addressed to the Ameri
can people, and she expressed her
thanks that her appeal had been for
warded to the American newspaper.
Ehe had, she taid, no definite plans,
bnt would be guided by her guardian,
Mr. Davie. She proposed to apend two
day in New Y'ork and then visit Boston
where ahe would remain nnlil after the
inauguration of President Cleveland,
then ahe would gojto Washington and
probably make a personal appeal to
Cleveland. The princes added sho had
no frieod in America exceDt the friends
of Davie, fche timidly expressed the !
hope that ahe might gain the sympathy
ot the American people.
"I cannot see," she continued, in a
modest, hesitating tone, "why I should
be lummarily deprived of my recognised
legal rights for no fault of mine, and
without being notified to appoar in de
fense of my right. I ask only that
right of appearance which fhe American
law gives to everybody before they are

THE MOJAVE DESERT.
a Vivid llwirlpUaa or II by 1'rlta I
An et tract, which we are permitted
to take from a letter from Norman C.
Wilson, who is collecting plant and
specimen for the Botanical gardens at
Berkley, Cal., gives us a glimpse of the
"Maiove Ieort," which mar not bo un

j time in a generation the sUrs and stripe
today float over an o-can greyhound, the
peer of any trail afloat. For th first
time since the country boasted a mer
cantile navy of clipper ships whose sail
w hltened every quarter of the globe tn
fact, for the first time in the history of
- 1 the nation, it flag will guard a modern.
welt-equipped, incomparable steamship,
and It is singularly appropriate too that
it should be unfurled on Washington's
birthday. Bad weather did much to
diminish the crowds lining the Battery
and the neighboring shore. "Old Glory"
was spread from the stern of the New
York amid the shrieking of innumerable
shrill whistle from various river Craft,
the roar of cannon from United State
mon-of-war re-erhied by gun of the fort,
and the cheering of hundred of onlook
er. The event inaugurates a new era
in American shipping history. AH pa
triotic American have had the deepest
interest in transferring the majestic
steamships City of New York and City
of Paris from the British to the Ameri
can flag, and the ship wss crowded with
guest favored with invitations to wit
ness the ceremony. The most distin
guished officer of the government, of
the states and of this municipality, and
the lending men in commerce and the
professions were invited to witness th
act, including the president and mem-
I bert of the cabinet, United States sena
tors and representatives.
The president and party arrived at

cers from the naval reserve and conveyed
on board the steamor New York. The1
ceremonies proceeded without delay. I
They were simple, brief and Impressive.
The president ot the United States
pulled the halyard that sent the emblem
of lilwrty fluttering to the breexe. Next
the Chicago fired the national salute of

adjourned to the grand saloon, which
