OREGON CITY, OB.
Jackro. Mich., Oct. 13. The mont
awful railroad dinaHcr of tlie prt-Rent
year in what can be Raid of the terrible
wreck which occurred thU morning right
in front of the depot of the Michigan Cen
tral company in Oil city. Twelve lives
were wid out and nearly twice that
number of people manyled and cruHhed.
All the people who were happy and joy
ful were on their way to Chicago pre
sumably to vUit the World's fair. This
Is tho flrxt wreck of any consequence
on 'he Michigan Central railroad since
1870 and the recult Is appalling.
The train in which the casualties oc
curred was an excursion train that left
Watertown, N. Y., yesterday for Chi
tago in two sections heavily loaded.
The fir ul section reached Jackson at
8:50 this morning and Hopped at the
depot to change enxines. Many pas
sengers alighted during the time to get
bit of breakfaMt during the wait. This
in itsvl! was a moot fortunate occurrence
as had it not been for this the list of
killed and Injured wonld hare been
much greater. While the first section
was standing In the station the second
section came Inlo the yards at the rate
of twenty miles an lour. The engineer
saw the semaphore set and tried to
stop but foi unaccountable reasons the
airbrakes on his engine failed to work
and the heavy train crashed with ter
rific force into the cars standing still.
The two rear coaches of the first section
were telescoped and it was in these that
roost of the casualties occurred. In
these cars every passenger was either
Willed or terribly injured. The third
coach from tho rear was thrown to one
side and four passengers in it were
killed and otbt-rs injured. With the ex
ception of the engine and baggage car
the rear section was unharm.
Mclinlty and Lincoln.
Kiw Yohk, Oct. 16 Gen. Felix
Agnus, editor of the Baltimore American,
who has just returned from the world's
fair with his brother-in-law, Collector
Kilbreth, spent a day in Indianapolis
with ex-President Harrison. "I had a
very pleasant visit," said Gen. Agnus.
"I find him still sad over his great
bereavement in the death of his wife,
but otherwise he was quite well. He
aid he thought the deplorable condition
of the country was due almont entirely
to the radical change from republican to
democratic policy. It was not men but
measures, he said mostly that made
the difference. I spoke of l8tW, but
Gen. Harrison is not thinking of that
very distant day. He spoke very kindly
of McKinley, and said he was deeply
interested in his fight in Ohio.
"I also met Robert Lincoln at a dinner
in Chicago," Gen. Agnus continued.
"Hold him that the camp-fires were
starting up for the great battle of 1896,
and that many of the Southern republi
cans were turning to him as the man
above all others to lead them on to
victory. 'I am in no sense a candidate
for presidential honors,' he said, 'but
under no circumstance wouild I accept
the nomination if it came from states
that cannot deliver a single republican
electoral vote. Besides you will find
ninety-nine out of every 100 republicans
in Illinois and the west are all in favor
of McKinley. If McKinley wins his
fight this fall, as we all expect him to do,
by a good majority, I think lie will
almost inevitably be the republican
standurd-boarer for president in vm.
No other name is seriously thought of at
present in the west. The financial
depression out here has made every one
want McKinley times again."
Leaving the Bute.
Ashland, Oct. 1(1. Another batch
of forty tramps arrived in Ashland on
the freight from the north this evening.
This gang attempted to take possession
of the day coach on the overland at
Grant's Puss this evening but were
beaten off by trainmen with clubs and
revolvers after numerous window lights
in the car haa been broken. The
freight lavs in Ashland over night before
going south and the town is Infested
with tramps each night. Though aside
from tho Chinese outrage last Wednes
day night no particular dopredations
have been committed.
Wheat Very Low But Moving.
Portland, Oct. 12. Wheat according
to the Commercial Review is moving
very freely from all quarters, the aver
age daily receipt at this point since
trmlHllnst. exceeding 1300 tons. The
outward movement would have made
a satisfactory showing wer it not for
the stormy weather which haa Inter
fered with putting grain aboard ship.
However, three full cargoes have been
completed and the vessels are now down
river or to go within a day or two. The
market has shown a weak undertone
throughout the week, partly owing to
the pronounced weakness of eastern
American markets and partly due to
weak cables, which disclose a hesi
tancy on the part of European buyers
to operate on an extensive scale In dis
tant cargoes , and whenever sale are
pressed, sellers are at a disadvantage
and are generally compelled to make
concessions. Sales of Walla Walla
wheat have been free on the basis of
85(387 per cental, the latter figure be
ing an extreme and only obtainable for
round lots of extra qnality. Valley
rangssat WCd'Jfl per cental for ship
ping grades and 974(2$t for milling.
CaliforBlt't Mid-Wistel Ftr.
Chicago, Oct. 16 The fondest hopes
of the projectors of the California Mid
winter International Exposition are
more than realilzed. The prospects of
its success have increased daily until
now the greatest fogies of the United
States are willing to admit its success.
Ita sco)6 has been broadening daily. At
first there were those who, unmindful
that the word "fail" was unknown to
Californians, doubted that exhibits and

Washihotom, Oct. 16. The condition
of the repeal bill in the senate with re
ference to a compromise is not so easy
of definition May as It appeared Satur
day when it was unmoved that a com
promise had been agreed upon. Tbe
situation appears to have changed some
what from tbe standpoint of the ultra re
peal forces. The reason for this change)
real or apparent, is in fact that the ad
ministration baa again made known
Its wish that a further effort be made to
force the repeal bill through without
amendment. It is said Cleveland is de
termined that congress shall continue to
debate the questioa if necessary until
There will probably be no more night
sessions in the senate while the repeal
concessions enough would be secured to j bill is pending. The silver senators
utilize the one hundred acres of Golden
Gate Park set aside for the exposition.
But since that time the executive com
mittee has been forced to secure ad
ditional space until now the grounds
will cover about 160 acres. There were
those who said enough exhibitors could
not be pursuaded to bring their goods
acrofcs the continent but the work of
securing exhibits has been progressing
rapidly though quietly and although it
is by no means finished tbe administra
tion knows that at least twenty-five
nations will be represented at the fair
when it opens in Ban FrancUco on
New Year's day. Applications for space
have been literally pouring in upon the
commissioner here who represent tbe
various nations which will take part.
So far from there not being exhibits
enough to fill the buildings it is feared
that many of those who make applica
tions for space must be refused. This
Is so well understood that even after tbe
commissoners have rejected a number
of applications as below the high stan
dard that has been made for the Mid
winter Fair it has even now been found
neceseary to build annexes to two of
The Lick observatory exhibit will be
transferred to the Mid-winter Fair after
the close of the world's fair.
It has been announced that no ap
plications for space will be received
from exhibitors after the 28th of October.
Washington, Oct. 16. Tbe boose this
afternoon passed the McCreary bill, with
the amendments offered by Geary and
Caminetti. Tbe bill, as passed, extends
the provisions of the Geary law six
months, defines Chinese laborers and
Chinese merchants, makes mandatory
photographic indentification, requires
marshals to carry out orders for deporta
tion, and excludes Chinamen convicted
of felony from permission to register,
Geary declares that the bill as passed is
perfectly satisfactory to the coast, and if
enforced at the expiration of the times
limit, will settle the Chinese problem.
Those who depart will not be able to
transfer their registration certificates
and in the course of time all will disap
pear from these shores. Tbe adminis
tration is also satisfied with the bill, so
Chairman McCreary, of the foreign af
fairs committee, avers.
Beoelver for the Union.
Omaha. Oct. 13. A plea in equity
was filed in the United Mates district
court today. Judge Dundy appointed S
II. H. Clark and E. Ellery Anderson of
New York and O. W. Mink of Boston
receivers for the Union Pacific railroad.
The application for a receiver was made
hv the executors of the Irederick L
Ames estate, Oliver Ames, Samnel Carr, j
Edwin F. Atkins and Peter Wyckoff.
The announcement of the application
and appointment of the receivers came
simultaneous about noon.
Children At the Fair.
Chicago, Oct. 14. Ten thousand
tickets of aduiissiou to the world's fait
were given to the principals of the
various schools in the city today for
distribution among the pupils by
various public spirited citizens.
The attendance for the past week at
the fair h as been something over 2,000-
000 persons. If the same ratio of at
tendance continues it will bring the
grand total up to about 12,000,000.

two hours tonight and would probably

which was inaugurated between the op

to cease their calls for a quorum and

Efforts at a compromise are kept up
in a desultory way. and Senator Cock

direction. He did not, however, make
material progress . Both rakical demo

Pullman, Wash., Oct. 17. Early this
morning, at the Artesian hotel, a burg
lar shot A. B. Cooper, a clerk in Black
man Bros.' store, through the breast,
killing him instantly. Cooper was
sleeping with one of the Blackroan
brothers. Blackman was awakened by
a pistol shot and sprung out of bed and
got a light. He found Cooper on the
floor, dead with a bullet wound, and
gave an immediate alarm, but no trace
beyond the murderers revolver, which
bad been dropped on the hall floor, could
be found. All tbe doors in the hotel
were locked. It is supposed that the
burgler knew of Cooper's habit of carry
ing a large sum of money with him, and
came into the room and endeavored to
take the money from under his pillow.
This is supposed to have awoke Cooper,
who grappled with the thief and was
shot. Several other guests of the hotel
were also robbed of money and jewelry,
though th? latter was all found in the
hallway. If the murderer is caught be
will be hung by the citizens. G. F.
Parker, a guest of tbe hotel, has been ar
rested on suspicion.
Baltimore Jail Burned
Baltwork, Md., Oct. 14. The Brnsh
electric-light works were entirely de
stroyed by fire last night. A spark fell
from tbe machinery and quickly ignited
the woodwork, which was saturated
with oil. Within an hour the plant waa
in ruins and the city in darkness. A
strong wind was blowing and showers
of sparks were carried a great distance.
When the fire was at its height flames
were discovered in the eaves of the city
jail. The warden was notified of the
danger by the shrieks of the prisoners,
who were frantic with terror and alarm.
It is believed that all the prisoners were
removed before the flames drove tbe
rescuers from the scene. Loss to
