squarely together, each flattened out and

The two engineers had seen the danger
in time to check most of their headway.
The excursion train, which was runniug
30 mile an hour had slackened to less
than 15, and the freight train wa nearly
at a standstill. To this circumstance the
passenger owe their lives, lor had the
train come together with ' just a nine
more momentum, tne passenger cars
would have rolled down the embank
ment, and on either side were sloughs
which the swollen Willamette had filled
to a depth of from eight to 20 feet.
Conductor Clough, of the freight train,
went immediately to Llnnton and tele
phoned for assistance to Portland. Ed
Lyons, manager of the Terminal Com
pany, soon had a special relief train
ready, and Ire. J. J. Panton, C. W.
Cornelius, H. B. Drake and D. II. Rand
were summoned to go to the scene of the
accident. The passenger were speedily
loaded on the relief train while the
! physician attended the Injured. Dr. J
B. Morris, of Lewiston, who was a pas-
aengnr on the regular Astoria train
which had fallowed the excursion, an
and wis hut half an hour behind whei

Conductor 51. A.Lowe, wbowasin
charge of the excursion train, made the
following statement to an Oregonian
man who went to the scene of the disas
ter on th relief train.
"Engine 17 wa running extra on fol
lowing schedule, with right over North

at 8 :W p.m. At 85 we atruck North

God, it's a train on the mainline!' I

Story of Mr. Koberta.
Mrs. C. 8. Roberts, mother-in-law of
Dirling, waa in the bsggage car when
the accident happened. Bell and
Roberta had made that their headquar
ters, and were sending out from it boy
selling ice cretin, etc.
"The first I knew, "said Mr. Roberta,
"the air brake were put on suddenly,
and we were all thrown off our feet.
Then the sraa'h-tip came. Mr. Bell,
who waa washing dishes in the front end
of the car, was covered up with timber,
and I did not see him again alive. I
beard Mr. Darling calling for help, but
could not reach him, and Miss Pitman,
who was sitting on a box across the car
from me, was also calling for assistance,
to one of the candy boys and I went to
her, and after half an hour' hard work,
we liberatod her. Mrs. Bell was thrown
across the car and badly bruised. It til
came so quickly that there are nooe of
us who really know much about it."
Mrs. Bell's condition was pitiable
when she teamed of her husband's
death, and added to much to the severity
of her injuries that the physicians were
unable to learn of their exact extent.
Her two email son accompanied her.

A crowd gathered at the depot to
meet the excursion, and when the
special train went out, the news of its
errand in some way got abroad. There
was a wild rush for places on the train,
and it was only by the exercise of great
tact and patience that Manager Lyons
was able to keep it clear. A great num
ber of anxious faces peered through the
bars on the depot when the relief train
finally rolled in, and many were the ex
clamationsof relief when relatives and
friend turned up unharmed.

in the Philippine i very erlona," said
General Nelson A. Mile at the Waldorf
Astoria last night. "I know nothing
concerning the story thattbe wsr depart
ment is (oppressing the new from Ma

are very serious there. The question of
issuing a call for volunteers ba not,

Loxdok, June 19. The 8t. James'
Gazette today claim to have received
from an absolutely reliable oe.rce at
Pretoria, capital of the Transvaal, tbe
plan of campaigo wbicb will be followed
by General Joubert, commander-in-chief
of the Boers, in tbe event of war be
tween the Tranavaal and Great Britain.
General Joubert'a force, it seem, will
consist of 20,000 men, armed with Mau
ser rifle, in addition to 46 quick-firing-gun
and 1000 artillerymen, moat of
them drawn from the German and Dutch
artnie. With these troop and help ex
pected from tbe Orange Free State, he
will march on Kimberley, the diamond
mining center in West Griqoaland,

expect to capture tbe town with slight
los. and blow up tbe DeBeers diamond
mine. Simultaneously, it is added, tbe
railroad from Cape Town to Bulawace
will be destroyed by Boer sympathizers,
and agents in Cpe Colony will deetruy
the Port Elizabeth-Pretoria line sooth of
Bloemfontein, to prevent British troops
from using it.
Finally, immediately after Khxberlev
is captured, General Joubert will ad
vance on Cape Town, the capital of Cape
Colony, through the western provinces,
where tbe Dutch predominate, and are
expected to join the Boers. Joubert cal
culates he will be master of Cape Town
