Both trains were behind their sched

Martin, but had not reached that sta

beyond Martin by the Flyer. Both
engines were demolished. The day
coach of th eaccommodation train was
telescoped as was the mall car on the
Flyer. All the cars of both trains
were thrown from the track and the
track and roadbed completely wrecked.
A relief train waa sent from Kansas

POLICE HAD TO CHARGE.
Crowds Surround House of Notorious
Woman in New York.
New York, June 4. A charge by
police reserves has been necessary to
drive away thousands of persons block
ing Central Park West, in front of the
home of Hanna Ellas, the octoroon who
is charged by John D. Piatt, an aged
millionaire manufacturer, with having
secured from him by blackmail nearly
$700,000 In cash and real estate.
Mounted police headed the charge and
they were compelled to use extreme
measures in order to drive off the
crowd, which was composed largely of
negroes, friendly to the woman.
Mrs. Elias has been besieged in her
splendid residence by deputies seeking
to serve a warrant since suit was
brought by Piatt. As it Is a civil case,
the officers are not empowered to break
in the doors, so they have waited about
patiently expecting the woman to at
tempt an escape. Meantime scores of
private detectives employed by num
erous persons Interested in the case
have stationed themselves nearby,
shadowing all who enter or leave the
house and serve as an added attrac
tion to the curious.
Finally, the crowd became so dense
that Central Park West was packed
a block In both directions. From the
sullen attitude of the negroes it is sur
mised that they, or at least some of
the leaders, had an Idea of protecting
THE WEEK IN STOCKS.
Trading by No Means Satisfactory to
New York, June 4. The short week
of trading in stocks has left the mar
ket in its rut of dullness and Iramo
billty. The doubt felt over the gen
eral outlook continues to paralyze spe
culative activity. The week's events
have not helped to remove these
doubts. Continuous congestion of
money in reserve centers points to
Impaired trade activity. The grain
crops have made unsatisfactory prog
ress, owing to lack of sufficient warmth.
Railroad gross earnings have com
pared more favorably with last year,
but net earnings reported were dis
couraging. Measures of retrenchment
of railroad expenses were interpreted
as admissions of poor prospects for
business. Reports of plans for cur
tailments of iron production caused
depression. Money was almost a drug
on the market.

The defense brought forward an alibi

much interest in this part of the state,
as it is regarded as a contest between
sheep and cattle men. The sheep are
