Dronklng of Piston Rod on Engine

Prompt action of the towcrman in

of Coshocton, and of the engineer
of the flyer, alone averted what might
have been a dreadful accident.
As the train was speeding along at
the rate of 50 miles an hour, the pis
ton rod on the left side of the loco
motive broke short off. Almost in
stantly the cylinder of the engine was
cracked by the unmanageable rod.
Secretary Taft and National Com
mittccman Kellogg entered the din

the accident occurred without thought
of anything scripus in connection
with the 8tpppig ftn( ,jctay of
the train. Ihc Secretary made no
comment on the incident when in
formed of it. The engineer of the
locomotive explained that it was
merely good luck that averted a bail
"If the piston rod, after it broke,
had gone under the train," said he,
"we would have gone into the ditch,
as we were running 60 miles an hour,
and the derailment would have been

Strange Accident Wrocks Cazadero
Portland, June 23. An accident to
the machinery nt the Cazadero power
plant of the Portland Railway, Light
& Power Company early yesterday
morning caused the complete wreck
ing of the station, entailing a loss of
$110,000. Flying pieces of hot metal
and burning insulation set fire to the
building, destroying inflammable parts
of the structure. Two operators who
were on duty at the time had a mirac
ulous escape from instant death.
The three big water wheels "ran
away," one after the other, the gen
erators to which they were coupled
flying in pieces and wreckage from
each machine in turn disabled the

San Francisco, June 23. Sochita
Asano, president of the Toyo Kiscn
Kaisha Steamship Company, reputed
to be the second wealthiest man in
Inpan, ranking next to Uaron Shi
busawa, has arrived here en route to
New York on a financial mission.
Speaking of the boycott against
Japanese goods in China, Mr. Asano
said that Japanese trade had suffered
severely because of the boycott re
sulting from the Tatsu Maru affair,
but he did not expect it to continue
The Chinese were feeling its reflex
influence, and he thought that finan
cial considerations would soon out
weigh sentimental reasons.
A different version is brought by
Thomas F. Millard, the author, who
was a fellow-passenger of Mr. Asano
on the steamship Mongolia. Accoru
ing to Mr. Millard, the boycott is
hurting Japanese trade so severely
that the government, through the
merchants of the empire, called the
Chinese merchants in Japan together
in order to make a proposal to end
the boycott by remitting the indem
nity exacted in the Tatsu Maru inci
Ouriod in Ancient State.

TARGET ORDERS SEALED.
Atlantic Fleot to Practice Under Un

.target practice of the ships of the
Atlantic fleet at Magdalcna bay. be
ginning about November 1, will be
attended witlu unusual conditions.
Kach ship is to have scaled instruc
tions, to be opened after the estab
lishment of the ranges. This will
add to the severity of the firing, and
will impart an amount of anxiety
which will be appreciated as having
Before the regular target practice
begins each ship will steam past the
target and fire a limited number of
shots in order that the pointers may
get practice in shooting, but not until
then will the ship's crew know at
what angle the vessel will pass the
target or at what speed. As each
ship frequently has a certain amount
of ammunition left over which is not
fired on the regular run for various
reasons, the decision has been
readied that this ammunition will be
utilized to carry out special target
practice with two or three battleships
firing against a moving target towed
by another battleship.

Washington, June 27. Mr. Volosc,

Houston, Tex., Juno 23. Nino ne
groes met death last night at tho hands
of a mob in tho ricinity of Hemphill, in
Sabine county. Today both races se
cured arms and tho tension is such to
night that a race clash appears Immi
nent. The lynchinga followed the killing
of two whito men by negroes. Two
weeks ago Hugh Dean and several
other white men visited a negro church
and schoolhouse, whero a danco was in
progress, presumably in quest of
liquor, it being the custom of some of
tho negroes to soil whisky during tho
progress of such affairs. During tho
evening Dean was killed and six ne
groes were held for tho killing.
At the preliminary examination evi
denco tending to show that tho plot
was planned at tho dance to kill Dean
was produced. Saturday last Aaron
Johnson, a prominent farmer, was as
sassinated while seated at the dining
tablo with his wife and child, the bul
let being fired through a window. Por
this crimo Perry Price, a negro, was
arrested, and, it is stated, confessed,
implicating Robert Wright, a relative
of one of the negroes held for Dean's
murder. Price declared he was offered
$5 to kill Johnson.
Then followed the forming of a mob
last night, tho overpowering of the
jailer at Hemphill, and the lynching of
the six negroes held for the murder of
Dean. Five were hanged to the same
tree, while another attempted to escape
and was shot to death.
Later in the night William McCoy,
another negro, was shot and killed
while standing at the gate of the John
son homo, and this morning the bodies
of two more negroes were found in tho
creek bottom. Wright, the negro who
confessed to the killing of Johnson, and.
the man implicated were taken to Beau
