in two sections. The second section had

arrived at Eaton the Cannonball was not
on the siding. Instead of waiting, the
passenger continued on toward Hunting
ton at a high rate of speed, running from
Baton station to the mile post beyond
at the rate of one-mile In 42 seconds.
The Cannonball had seen the passenger
train coming and had stopped. Evidently
the engineer of the passenger did not see

each side of the track.
Pinned Under Engine.
The fireman of the passenger. Buck Ro
velsteadt. of Glenn's Ferry, was killed.
He was pinned down by the engine, and
it was four t?r five hours after the acci
dent before be was dug out. The mall,
dork. J. VT. Harrison, of Portland, was
killed, and Alex Larose, engineer ofthe
passenger, died at the hospital at Boise
at this evening.
The crew and passengers of the Can
nonball had seen the passengers bearing
down on thorn and had got off. A passen
ger. O. M. Harper, of Demar, Kan., was
thrown through a window of one of the
coaches and was badly cut about the head
and body. A woman, name unknown, had.
an arm broken, and several others were
considerably bruised and shaken up by
the force of the collision.
The train was run back to Welser by
an engine taken from a through freight,
and the passengers are now here. La

Cnrs Reduced to Kindling.
Railroad men state the smash-up of tho
cars was the most complete they had
ever seen, the baggage and freight cars
being reduced to kindling wood, and great
pieces of iron and bolts being broken and
twisted Into Indescribable shapes. Bar
rels of whisky that were on the freight
train were thrown into the edge of the
waters of Snake River, more than lw
L&rese. the engineer, was thrown by
the force of the collision over the right-of-way
fence. That dozens of passengers
were not killed by the force of the col
lision seems almost miraculous.
It will probably take all night to re
move the debris from the track, in order
that trains can pass over the road. Owing
lo the. impossibility of securing the evi
dence desired, the Coroner's Inquest was
postponed until Wednesday. The body of

CONFESSION SAVES HIS NECK
Harry Love Acknowledges Atrocious
Murder at Lancha Plana.
STOCKTON, Csl., Sept. 23. (Special.)
Judge Rust at Jackson today sentenced
Samuel Swearlngen, alias Harry Love, to
life Imprisonment at Folsom for the mur.
der of Mrs. Phoebe Williams, at Lancha
Plana the morning of June 12 last. In
passing sentence Judge Rust stated that
he would not pronounce dtath sentence
because the defendant had pleaded guil
ty, thereby saving the county the ex
pense of a trial.
Clarence Murphy, whom Love says In his
confession cut the throat of Mrs. Will
lams, Is to be arraigned tor that murder
next Monday. Love seemed '.pleased at
The crime perpetrated by Love and
Murphy is classed among the most horri
ble this state has known in a decade.
Mrs. Phoebe Williams, an aged woman,
was found dead hi her bed In her cabin
at Lancha Plana, a little place near Jack
son. Amndor County. She had been beaten
apparently with some blunt instrument,
her body showing horrible wounds, and
had also been shot. The startled dis
coverers of the ghastly affair began an
examination of the premises nnd found
near a bridge several hundred yards from
the house the remains of Chester Maker,
the lB-yeor-old grandson ot Mrs. Williams.
There was no clew to the assassins,
but by clever work Sheriff Norman gath
ered facts that led him to suspect Harry
Love. He took the suspect Into custody
and made him think that he knew of his
guilt. He told Love that he suspected an
other man also and Wanted a confession.
This, Love, now thoroughly frightened,
consented to glvo In open court. Last
Tuesday the culprit was taken Into Judge
Love's confession in court did not em
brace the killing of tho grandson, but It
Is known from other admissions of the
prisoner that the two men had endeavored
to get young Maker to go in their plot,
that he indignantly refused and that they
felled him with a blow from a pistol and
killed him before going to tho house to
complete their work.

ALBANY. Or., Sept. 23. (Special.)
Working under promise of a meager sal
ary, and not receiving all ot that, having
no definite payday, but depending on the
caprice of his congregation for contribu
tions, living In the Interior town of Lake
view, from which a trip to the more pop
ulous sections Is very expensive. Rev.
John B. Stark, Methodist minister at
Lakevlow, unexpectedly called to far
away Michigan to the bedside of his
seriously 111 wife, notified tho presiding!
elder of his district that he, had collected
the money from a number of benevo
lences and then -used the money to reach
his sick wife.
Today, at the Oregon Annual Methodist
Conference, a trial committee of his fellow-ministers
found Stark guilt' of dis
honesty, and the conference turned him
out ot the Methodist ministry and de
manded the return of his credentials. Mr.
Stark has the right to appeal his case to
the triers of appeals, but stated today
that he had not yet determined to carry
his case to a higher court. He says that,
his case In its early stages was carried
through without adequate notice to the
accused, or opportunity for defense on
his part, and this appears to be sustained
by the report of the presiding elder.
Charges Were Delayed.
This report shows that Mr. Stark wrote
to the elder asking for Information re
garding the charges tha,'t had been pre
ferred by members of his congregation,
but that the charges and specifications
reached the -accused some time after the
meeting of the investigating committee
which suspended him, and that the testi
mony -on which, be was suspended was
taken lrt his absence, without his knowl
edge and without giving him any hearing
or Opportunity for defense.
.Since returning to Oregon. Mr. Stark
asserts he has offered to pay. over to the
presiding elder the appropriated runas,
bu. his offer was Ignored. It seems, how
ever, that the offer was not a tender of
the money, but merely a written offer to

That It Is the ultimate-intention-ot the

assertion of one of the officers of the new
road now building down tho north bank
of the Columbia River.
In support also of this statement it Is
alleged, that the surveyors, now known to
be working In the vicinity ot Oroville. on
the Okanogan River, near the boundary
line, and the surveying party ostensibly
employed by Attorney-General John D.
Atkinson, of this state, between We

lows a canyon oUt of Watervllle to Oron
do and then down the east bank of the
Columbia, crossing to Wenatchee on the
west bank near that city. One thing that
-has occasioned considerable comment is
that the surveying party expended a great
deal of time and careful work in survey
ing the river oh both sides In the vicinity
of Orondo. It was stated that this was
for the purpose of determining the feasi
bility of erecting a bridge at that point
and coming down the west bank of tho
river to Wenatchee. In spite of this ex
penditure of time and work on a proposes
bridge site, the surveyors have never at
tempted to And a feasible route down the
west bank of the river, and the question
arises, "What Is the necessity of a rait
road brldgo at that point?"
The answer is that the surveying near
Oroville and at the boundary line by an
other party of surveyors Is In the Interest
of the Hill roads; that their line will
comedown the west bank of the Okano
gan and Columbia Rivers from the boun
dary to Orondo, cross on the bridge con

It is said that there will soon be survey
