Scaixonaui, III., June 20. Governor j
Alined loilay pardom-d Fielden, Xere,
Chieugo the night of Hay 4, 188fi, in-
which large number of police were
killed rnnd wounded, and for which l'ar
ftona, Spit-a and othera w ere banged, and
over which a monument waa unveiled
by Chicago anarch in W yesterday. Thii
morning the aecretary of itate received a
note from William F, Doze, the govern
or's private secretary, transmitting papers
pertaining to the application for pardon
and the executive order granting pardon
to the men. Tapers wem immediately
made out and given to E. D. Dryer, who
left on the noon train for Joliet. He de
livered the papers to Warden Allen and
the men were at once releatted.
I'oktlanii, Oh., June 2H. Kant mail
train No. 1, of the Union I'aciflc. due at
7:-fl a. m.t was wrecked yenti-rduy
morning at about 8 o"clo k near Clarnie Hchwab, the anarcbints serving life
station, six miles eat of Portland. One u-nces in the Joliet penitentiary for
man was killed. complicity in the Haymarket riot in
it was a iiio jH-i uiar accident and the
wonder is that more people were not
killed or maimed. The train conHiHM
of a locomotive and eight cars, four being
paanengur roaches, well filled. At the
bottom of a 20-foot gulch, a mile and a
half west of Clarnie, there are now
lying an engine and tender, two bagcage
cars and one mail car, smashed and
broken and in a state of confusion,
now it occi'ttasn.
"We had Just pulled out of Clarnie,"
said Mr. W, J. Sherman, the tngirwer
of the train, "and were running at a
sed of about 28 miles an hour. When
rounding a shoit curve about ) 't miles
this side I saw a cow feeding on the
vraNHBlongKidu the track about 2A yards
ahead. I blew the whistle, and just
before we got up to her she jumped upon
the track and started down ahead of us.
Then I applied the air-brakes and re
versed the lever, but we caught her and
threw her tip on the pilot. She rolled
down, however, upon the track,
ami the forward wheels striking her
caused the locomotive to leave (he rails.
It was all done so quickly that I had
scarcely time to think. My first impulse
was to jump, but before I had time to do
so the engine w rs suddenly checked, and
the water tank flying by. Idealizing
that it would be dangerous to jump
I concluded to stay where I was and
take my medicine. In the crash that
came, the engine was suddenly turned
over to the left, and I fell under the cab
and escaiwd injury. The fireman was
thrown clear out of tho window from
his seat, and alighted unhurt upon the
boiler. I never heard of a more miracu
lous epcupe than I and my fireman,
George Avery, bad."
ONLY ONX I'KUDON KILLED.
After the train had heen brought to a
stumltttill eyery one was at once in a
state of excitement. The scene at the
bottom of the embanketnent was con
fusion, and of course the passengers who
rushed forward expected to find the
engineer, fireman, baggageman, mail
ngents and express messengers ground
up in the debiis. There was the shat
tered engine, with steam escaping with
an almost deafening hissing noise, and
the Bhouts of the imprisoned men made
the scene an exciting one. The work of
rescue was at once begun, and it was
soon ascertained that those whom it was
thought were killed had sustained no
injuries. There was not even a acretch
on them. After receiving a shower of
congratulations, they with others
directed their attention to the wrecked
cars, and here was found the only
fatality. Underneath the mail-car,
pinned to the ground by a heavy truck,
was discovered the mutilated body of a
man. Life had been crushed out of
him instantly. From all indications be
was a "blind baggage" passenger, which
is a term among railway men for a
"heat." When the crunh came he was
throw n under the mail-car aud ground
to death. Both his legs and arms were
broken, his skull crushed and he was
injured internally. It "took some time
to release the body and it was sent to
the morgue in this city. Whan searched
papers were found in the pockets indi
cating that his name was C. C. Chafe.
lie had $1.50 in coin, but there was
nothing to show where be lived. He
had evidently traveled extensively, for a
diary that he kept contained entries in
regard to his having visited cities all
over the country. He was of a fine
figure, well dressed and about 30 years

Losnox, June 23. A tragedy on se
without paralell in naval annals was re
ported today. The British battleship
Victoria, the flagship of the Mediterra
nean squadron, completed her checkered
career by sinking off Tripoli, after a col '
lision with the Caroperdawn, a sister
ship of the- squadron. The tragedy re
sulting in the loss of 400 men, including:
the vice-admiral U the squadron, has
ot been equalled in its fatal result
since the sinking of the Royal George in
IZ82, when COO souls found their shroud
h the ocean wave.
As soon as the officer of the Victoria
saw that there was danger of the ship
foindering, orders- were given to close
collision bulkheads, to keep the water in
the compartment into, which the Cam
perdown bad shoved her ram. The sail
ors tried to obey the order, but the ship
was making water too fast to allow the
closing of the bulkheads, and while the
men were still trying to shut them, the
vessel, with its immense guns and heavy
top 1m m per, turned over and carried
The tragedy occured between 4 and 7
o'clock, Thursday A. M., when the Vic
toria, the fUguhip of the British Medit
erranean fleet, commanded by Vice-Ad-miral
Tryon, was rammed by the battle
ship Camperdown. The blow struck
the Victoria's starboard side, forward of
the turret. In 15 minutes she turned
over and sank, drowning all on board
except 34 officers and 261 enlisted men.
The number of the lost is estimated at
over 400, including Admiral Tryon.
The Camperdown is so seriously injured
as to make it necessary that she be
docktd. Friday morning Admiral Mark
bam telegraphed from Tripoli, the fore
going fact to the admirality, adding that
he should send the survivors to Malta at
once and wait instructions. Since tben
be has telegraphed the names of all the
saved persons from the Victoria. No
other news has been received from any
one near the scene of the disaster. The
foregoing contains all tiie facts known
about the collision.
Lowait Ever Inowa.
Washington, June 26. The market
price of silver today reached the lowest
point in the history ot that product.
Saturday the London price, which guides
the director of the mint in purchases for
the government, was 37s'd, or about
$0,818 in this country. This morning;
the price in London was 36d, or about
$0,788 in Xew York. Later in the day
the price dropped to 77 cents. The
cause of the depression was assigned by
Mr. Preston, the acting director of the
mint, as due to a rumor, which was
probably true, that India, one of the lar
gest silver-consuming countries, was
about to close its mints to the white
the president, Secretary Carlisle and
the officers of the financial government
generally, received the first authentic
news of the startling action of the gov
ernment in India, in suspending silver'
coinage through the press dispatches.
When the report was announced in the
English parliament it was received with
gravity, and the situation was at once ap
parent. Secretary Carlisle, upon read
ing the dispatches, immediately went to
the White House, and for nearly two
hours discussed the bearings of the ac
tion with the president. The conference
was renewed at the president's subur
ban retreat later in the evening and was
protracted far into the nigtit. The ch
cumstances are regarded as far too seri
ous to permit of any authentic express
ion of opinion as to the future policy of
the United States until all the facts are .
Funeral of Senator 8 tan ford.
Palo Alto, Cal., June 24. The
funeral of Senator Stanford brought out
a very large concourse of mourners. A
rough estimate places the number on
the ground at 2000. Among the floral
pieces which were sent to the house and
were put in the room where the casket lay
was a large floral representation of the
Southern Pacific depot at Sacramento.
In dentil Senator Stanford did not look
as in life. The features were shrunken.
