Wreck Train Near Kan--sus
EMPORIA, Kan, May 11. Santa Fe
passenger train No. 37was ditched by
train wreckers a mile east -of town at
2:30 o'clock this morning. Six passengers
were injured and two will probably die.

F. A. Grevcr. fireman, Topeka; thrown from
cab and back and shoulders injured.
This is the fourth attempt in the last
four months to wreck passenger trains In
the same place. Previous attempts were
made by piling! tie on the track, and
were without serious result. The wreck
today was caused by removing the spikes
and fishplates of two rails on the inside
of a curve.
The engine -passed over the loose rails
safely, but the mail-car left .the track
and was dragged 100 yarda along the em
bankment before the train was stopped.
The next five car?, the express and baggage-cars,
the smoker and two coaches,
went into the ditch. The end of the bag
gage car went up ir. the air high enough
to ground the telegraph wires. Two Pull
man sleepers remained on the track.
The passengers were alseep when the
wreck occurred, and became greatly ex
cited, but soon formed a wrecking crew
and went to the relief of the men in the
overturned baggage-car. A window was
broken, and of seven mpn in the car, six
were found injured. Stretchers were
made from car doors and the wounded
were carried to a noar-by field, where a
hospital was improvised.
An hour after the wreck -a .relief train
arrived from Emporia a ad the injured
were taken to Emporia. A hundred work
men were put to work on" the track, and
it was cleared for use again this after
noon. There 1s no clue to the wreckers. Three
men were seen last night near the How

HARBORED RUSSIAN FLEET
Action of the French Is Known to
TOKIO. May H.-(7 P. M.)-Detailed
confirmatory information concerning Vice
Admiral Rojestvensky's use of Indo-China
waters has reached the Japanese govern
ment from a arioty of sources, both offi
cial and private. A high Japanese official
today sketched to the Associated Press
the important acts of the Russian fleet
since France was first moved to preserve
neutrality. He said:
"The Governor-General of Indo-China
officially reported that the Russian fleet
had entirely departed from Katnranh Bay
on April 22. but on April 23 there still re
mained In the bay one cruiser, one torpedo-boat
destroyer and 15 transports of
the Russian fleet. On April 24 the entire
Russian fleet re-entered Kamranh Bay
and rode at anchor until April 2G. when
a majority of the warships sailed, leaving
behind four converted cruisers and one
torpedo-boat destroyer. These latter ves
sels took supplies of coal and provisions.
"April 26. toward evening, these vessels
stopped and examined the German steam
er Loosok and" the Norwegian steamer
Providence, which passed outside the bay.
April 27, more than 20 Russian vessels
were anchored at Honkohe. and at 5
o'clock in the afternoon they stopped and
examined the British steamer Stettin,
which was passing.
"According to the French official roport
Vice-Admiral Rojestvensky promtsed Ad
miral do Jonqulcrs that he would leave
Honkohe ?Iay 3. It is evident, however,
that the Russians were anchored at Hon
kohe May 8. ,
"The latest telegrams from Indo-China
indicate the presence at Honkohe on May
12 of seven Russian battleships, seven
cruisers, two torpedo-boat destroyers and
four converted cruisers.
"Since the appearance of the Russian
fleet in the Far East. Saigon has become
a baso for the transportation of military
supplies for Vlce-Admlral Rojestvensky's
fleet. The number of vessels furnishing
supplies to -the Russians is so great that
those which were anchored at Saigon .May
5 were countable by tens.
Steamer Carlisle Is Detained.
SAIGON. May 14. The British steamer
t arllsle has been detained here on suspi
cion of carrying contraband of war.
The steamer Carlisle, under charter to
the Russian government to carry sup
plies from Vladivostok to Port Arthur
before the capture of the latter place
by the Japanese, lost her propeller and
drifted to San Miguel Bay, Island of
Luzon, whence she was towed to Manila.
The acting Russian consul at Manila
infused the request of the Carlisle's cap
tain to commuulcate with his government
regarding "the disposition of the vessel's
cargo. Early in March It was reported
that Japanese in fishing sampans made
four attempts to sink the Carlisle, but
were repulsed by the customs guard on
board the vessel, wh6 fired upon the sam
pans. No Coal for Saigon.
TOKIO, May 15. (Noon.) The govern
ment has prohibited- the exportation of
coal to Saigon. The embargo is to con
tinue so long as the Russian fleet is In

Four More People Expire at Snyder
SNYDER. O. T., May 14. Four more of
the persons injured in Wednesday night's
tornado died today Miss Mize, Mr. Paul

A number of persons are missing and sev
eral of the injured are in a critical condi
tion. Sightseers who came to town op the
railroad made trouble for the doctors and
nurses. Much more welcome were 150 men
who came from Hobart with tools and
building material and gave their services
free to putting partially wrecked houses
into habitable condition. "Relief is com
ing from many quarters money, bedding,
clothing and food. This assistance is urg
ently needed. There was no rain today
and conditions are more cheerful.
A pockctbook containing $32 was picked,
up today, 19 miles from Snyder. It be-,

Why Buy at Sales?
Why Buy at Olds, Wortman & King's?
If a store is honest, a "sale" means much of economy to the purchaser. One day last
wee a lady who was a stranger to the store, came in to purchase several articles, being
attracted by the special sale prices advertised in the newspapers. She shopped carefully
took her time and when she had finished said:. "This sale is a surprise to me. Why, I
have actually saved as much as you claimed in the papers. I b elite ve even more."
Thousands of Portland folk know she judged rightly. So both questions are answered at
once. Every value advertised is GENUINE. The regular price is just as advertised the
standard set by prices of standard first-class stores of the Marshall Field and Wanamaker
class throughout the country; the selling prices are our own as advertised. Your savings
are the difference between the two. And savings were never greater, or plentier, than today.
Of course you're going to share we'll expect you. Come.

A Thoughtful Act.
The fiction of the friend who is coming
to occupy the seat In the railway train
that one has really secured as an extra
seat fer one's self sometimes works and
sometimes doesn't. A passenger, . hurry
ing along the platform just befere the
train started, flung himself upon a seat
that was already occupied with a Glad
stone bag. "That seat is taken," said a
morose old gentleman; "my friend has
kept it with his bag." "All right." said
the wily passenger affably, "I'll occupy
It till he comes." Of course the friend
never came, and just as the train was
moving out of the station the wily pas
senger seized the bag and threw it out
of the window. "What 'are you doing,
sir?" shouted the old gentleman, furi
ously. "Anything the matter?" inquired
the other. "Ton don't want your poor
friend to lose his bag. do your
Troubles of Nebraska -Hostess.
Nebraska State Journal.
A lady said recently: "I wlh somebody
would make gutets understand that the
hostess is the only one with the right to
run a party. Twice recently I have been
at Informal afternoon companies where
some guest has broken up the gathering
by Insisting that refreshments be served
at aft hour to suit herself.
"On one such occasion we were invited
for bridge, and the lady who asked for
refreshments early skipped out after she
had eaten her luncheon to keep an ap
pointment with a dressmaker. Of course
we re left one short. The hostess was
annoyed and all the rest of us cross, so
we put on our wraps and went home.
"At another affair, where a guest In
sisted on interfering with the arrange
ments, the hostess Anally . exclaimed:
This, is my party, and Til have it the
way I want It!' And she did, but all
hostesses have not the. nerve to- quell such
disturbance."' - -
