LONG'S Corvalli s, Oregon . MANY KILLED AND INJURED IN RAILROAD DISASTER IN ENGLAND. Mostly New York People on Board r Coaches Literally Smashed to Pieces by Accident Salisbury, Englrnd, July 3. Driving at a mad pace over the London Southwestern railway, the American Line .Express, carrying 43 of the steamer, New York's pas sengers from Plymouth to London, plunged from the track juBt after passing the station here at 1.571 o' clock this morning,, and mangied to death in its wreckage 23 passen gers, who sailed from New York June 23, and four, of the trainmen. Besides those to whom death came speedily, a dozen persons were seriously injured. In one part of the coach the Sen- tell family from New York were traveling together, of whom only Edward W. Sentell was found alive three hours after the accident. Some crowded water was hauded him through a hole in the wreck and he was soon removed to the infirmary, bleeding from a scalp wound, and with his left leg badly fractured. Those who were killed of the family were Mrs. . W. Sentell, Miss Blanche M. Sentell, Charles E. Sentell, Miss Gertrude M. Sentell, all of New York City. Throughout the wild plunging of the engine, Driver Robins, whether alive or dead, remained in his cab. Hours afterward bis charred body was found grilled over the fire box. The first coach went over the engine and Cireened forward until it was hurled against, the parapet of the bridge and smashed into fragments. billing or maiming almost every oc cupant. Oae man was shot through the window, cleared the parapet end fell to bis death to the street below. The second coach lurched for ward and rollei toward a stationa ry train and . practically destroyed itself before its wild flight was ended. The third coach dashed forward with the res', left the rails and en countered some obstruction, over turned and collapsed. Ia the carriages huddled in wreck age almost under the wheels of the upturned engine death had been bueieet. Here nine men and five women were taken out dead soon after the accident. The driver and fireman were dead in their cab. These were all taken to the waiting room and several of the injured were given first aid and dispatched to the infirmary, which fortunately was not far distant. Edward W. Sentell is doing as well as could be expected. When an opening was made into the etond carriage a terrible sight was revealed. At one end of a compartment several bodies were jammed together in an almost un recognizable mass. for which he had been especi selected by God. He believed he was the only man living who pos sessed the power to rid the world of this man who had brought ruin and disgrace, not only upon the people Mitchell loved best but upon others whom he knew of and of whom be was fond. This belief which he had expressed to a num ber ot people and which all argu ment failed to dispossess him of, bad been with him most of the time before he finally accomplished what he felt to1 be his solemn duty, and even when lying delirious with ill ness in the Portland hospital he babbled of his fear that Esther Mitchell would meet the fate which Creffield had in store for her. p This and other evidence tending to show that Mitchell was tempo rarily insane was placed before the jury thiff morning by Attorney Si las M. Shipley when the defense outlined: , the case. Mr. Shipley spoke for two hours and a quarter. He deslared the testimony of the state's witnesses that at the time of his arrest Mitchell was cool and col lected was correct and that his con duct was of an insane mind. For fear that the court will not admit much of the evidence touch ing upon Creffield's religious fanat icism the attorney for the defense it all into hiB opening statement so as to get it before the jury. very minute act ot Cret- field s was outlined to the jury in the opening statement of the- de fense. Nothing that could possibly sway tne emotion ot. the jury was left out.: A NEW YORK TRAGEDY MRS. THAW PRAISES' HER HUSBAND FOR KILLING STANFORD WHITE, HER BETRAYER. Washington, June 30. Prompt ly at 10 o'clock tonight, Vice-Piesi dent Fairbanks in the senate and Speaker Cannon in the hoos9 de clared the final adjournment of the first session of the Ffty-mnth con gresB. ; For the first time congress ad journed en the day which closed the fiscal year.

Startling Stories of White's Career Are Developing Which Turn Public Sympathy in Favor of Prisoner. New York. June 26. His nerves unstrung, a nervous wreck, Harry Kendall Thaw, multi-millionaire, member of a . leading family of Pittsburg, brother of the countess of Yarmouth, still wearing his be draggled evening clothes, was ar raigned thiB morning for the mur der of Stanford White, a prom i cent architect, whom he shot to death last night during the per formance of the musical extrava ganza "Ma m'eelle Champagne" at the Madison square roof garden. Thaw was remanded to appear be fore the coroner. White's attention to Mrs. Thaw, formerly Evelyn Nes bit, a celebrated stage beauty and artists' model, are believed to be the cause of the tragedy. The proceedings before the coro ner were brief. Oa the affidavit of Patrolman Debs that Thaw said to him "I shot him," Thaw was held without bail and sent to the Tombs. Assistant District Attorneys Knott and Turnbull are conducting the prosecution. At the Tombs Thaw found that the police had procured him a business suit from his apart ments. He quickly changed and was taken to his cell where he con ferred with his counsel.

Seattle, Wash., July 2. Nervous ly inUrlaciDg his toil-knotted fing ers and his lips until they showed white in a vain effort to repress the volume oi feeling which surged in his breast, George 1 Mitchell this afternoon . watched and listened while his sister Esther told on lb witness stand her connection with "Joshua" Creffield and his band oi Holy Roller fanatics. . It was to save this sister from be iag totally ruined by the man who held her in the hollow of his hand and al together responsive to his false teachings that this young far mer boy took the law into his own hands and placed .himself in jeop ardy because he loved her. That his sister has no apprecia tion of this great love in which she is held by her brother and decry s hia act of taking the life of the man who would have destroyed her, was evidenced by her attitude. Her brother may pay the extreme pen alty which the law enacts for the crime of murder and she would never mourn him. She does, how ever, mourn ''Joshua". Creffield and every bit of evidence she gave for the defense was drawn from her by great effort on the part of the attor neys who are trying to secure free dom for Mitchell. George Mitchell in taking the life of Creffield on the morning of May 7 believed he was performing an act Washington, D. C, June 30. The Oegon delegation, in the ses sion of congress just closed, while handicapped by unfortunate circum stances, has been singularly success ful, and legislation secured for Ore' gon interests will compare favoia bly with that obtained by other state delegations. In the house there has been much forbearance and charity shown Oregon on account of the naturally weakened condition of the Btate'a representation, and in all matters in which Oregon is in terested every effort has been made to give the state a fair and square deal. In the senate there was no strong er delegation trom tne west or northwest than Fulton and Gearin These two senators worked in har mony and without jealousy or riv airy for the interests of their state and ll is unfortunate for Oregon that they are not to continue to work side by side during the six tieth congress. Coming late in the session and observing Btrictly the tradition of the senate that a new senator shall not take a speaking part in the proceedings, Gearin has made no addresses in the senate, al though urged at various times to do so by those knowing his ability a3 a speaker. ' -: U iiiie net doing any talking, Senator Gearin bas applied him self industriously to work for hiB state, and in conjunction with Sen ator s uuon has accomplished cca terial results. Senator Fulton's work during the session had scope of both national and state in terests. Conspicuous in the former was his participation with marked success in the railway rate discus sion, wnere ne earned a high posi tion among tne legal lights of th senate. Service of a more distinc tive state character resulted through the efforts combined with Senator Gearin's in the generous appropria tions for Oregon, considering that this is election year, when the watch dogs growl at every treasury gate The 400,000 for continuing work at the mouth of the Columbia was prominent achievement in this line, the Klamath Indian appropriation of $537,000 being a good second, and $120,000 for state buildings being not a despicable third. latter and a party of friends were, sitting at a table. As Thaw and his wife passed, White sneerlngly glanced at Evelyn Neeblt Thaw, saying loud enough for all sitting near him to hear: "There she goes. She's any body 'a property. She's only a " Thaw was at White' elbow at this time. Leaning over the table Thaw shook his finger in White's face. "Yon , I'll get you for those words," he eaid. Later White and his fr'ends left the table at which they had been sitting and walked through the din ing room to the terrace, where they sat In the open air drinking. As White passed Thaw's table he tap ped Mrs Thaw familiarly upon the shoulder and said something to her which no one else heard. The sirl shuddered and turned pale. A few hours later Thaw shot White at the roof garden. Seattle, June 28. Another day of weary wrangling on the part of the attorneys for the state and those who are defending George Mitchell, charged with the murder of Franz Edmond Creffield, the holy roller prophet," baa passed and as yet the I2 men who will try the case has not been eecared. There were five peremptory challenges exercised this forenoon, the defense using three and the state two. It is be lieved that a jury acceptable to both sides will be secured by at least to morrow forenoon. House for Rent. - -" Enquire at Allen's drug store. Ne w York, June 27. Why Thaw should have lived for over a year in apparent happiness with his chorous girl brida and then sud denly within less than a month dis cover that Stanford White had ru ined his home, is probably explain ed by Mrs. Thaw's statement to Harry Bradere, a close personal friend of her husband, she eaid "Harry did just right. He did anoDieact. ine world 6houia oe rid of such men as White. I tried to get away irom White and per suade him to cease persecuting me. For a time I thought I haa succeed ed, but whenever I came within his reach I was sure to be annoyed by him. I loved Harry and wished to get entirely away from everything that reminded me of my stage life, It was cruel of White to continue hiB efforts to eee me." Same interesting disclosures of White's private life have followed hia murder. Ote development of today may have a particularly close bearing on the tragedy. The police nave learned that White was ss eaulted and beaten last Wednesday night ia front of a New York thea tre by a young woman who used an umbrella over his head. The young woman was accompanied by a man who held White's arms while she belabored him. When a crowd be gan to gather the man let go ot White's arms and the latter made off. The woman was bustled into a waiting hansom. She was said to be in the theatrical profession. No attempt so far ha been made to identify White's assailant as Mrs. Thaw. White was 5"2 years oil an emi nent in his profession, but found plenty of time for the gay life of the tenderloin. -Id the tower of Madison Square garden he had bachelor apartments and ft was there that he and his actress friends held high revels. He perhaps was one of the best known and prodigal examples of New York's men about town. In connection with Harry Thaw's direct charge that White ruined Evelyn Nesbit while she was a youDg girl and then deserted her, a few extracts from the Sun are of interest. The sun says: "It is rumored, and generally be lieved, that on eeveral occasions when complaint was made against Stanford. White the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children attempted to gather evidence to warrant the asking of his arrest up on charges of debauching 13 and 14-year-old girls, but the society al ways maintained it could not get enough evidence to warrant action." The Morning Telegraph tells of a significant incident in the Cafe Mar'in which apparently precipi tated the killing of White. The Portland, June 28. Evening Journal: Mrs. Emma L. Watson. the former mistress and accomplice of S. A. D. Puter, and who was convicted in December, 19o4, with other membera of the Oregon land fraud gang, arrived this morning from San Francisco in custody of a United States officer. Later in the day she was formally surrendered to the court. The bringing of Mrs. Weston here was brought about by her bondsmen, Ben Sweet and L. F. Puter, the latter being a brother of the king of the land fraud opera tors. The instigation came from Sweet, who became apprehensive that the woman would jump her bail and that he woyld have to pay the fiddler. Sweet is a wealthy timb r man with whom Puter for merly had large dealings. The wo man was out under $6,000 bonds, one surety of $2,000 being required immediately after her conviction and the one of $4,000 being requir ed subsequent to that time, on the occasion ol later indictments. - Mrs. Weston left Portland some what over a year ago, going first to British Columbia with Puter, who was also out on bail. She traveled east with her companion, but later returned to the coast and waa thought to have been in San Fran cisco at the time of Puter's arrest in Boston. It was through shad owing her that the secret service men finally learned of the where abouts of Puter after his sensation al escape in BoBton, and through Puter's attempt to meet her that his arrest in San Francisco several weeks ago was accomplished. Mrs. Watson evidently was at sea regarding the nature of the pro ceedings, when she was brought be fore District Judge Wolverton this morning. Alter being lormerly sur rendered by Ben Sweet and L. F. Puter through their attorneys, J. N. Djlpb, the woman made a state ment to the court, declaring that ebe saw no reason why she should be brought here; that she had al ways been ready to appear upon due notice. She was not represent ed by an attorney. Unless Mrs. Watson can procure bondsmen she will have to go to jail. She will probably derive lit tle comtort from the fact that while there she will be housed in the same building with her former compan ion. Mrs. Watson took an active part in the land frauds, having forged many of the names of spuri ous entrymen. Her first night in prison was spent wearily. She slept only for a few hours, it is said. Fortunate ly for her she is the only woman captive in the county jail and she has been granted a mocking sem blance of liberty by being allowed access .to all parts of the ward. She haa made no unusual , re quests since s deputy United States marshal gave her into the custody of the jailer. She has asked for no feather beds and haa been appar ently content with the food that has been given her. ' The cell in which the adventur- continued on page 4 " .
