TWO TRAINS WRECKED.
Palatine Bridge, N. Y., Sep. 27. St,
Louis express No. S, which left Albany
at 10 o'clock last night, met with a bad
accident about two miles east ot here
about midnight. The first section broke
down and stopped for repairs. Ibe rear
brakeman was sent back to signal the
second section, but it was upon him be
fore he had taken a half-dozen steps. The
first section was made up of a baggage,
mail, express and three passenger cars,
packed with people, and a Wagner sleep
er on the end.
The crash was terrific. The second
section telescoped the first section, knock
ing out the lights and . plunging every
thing into darkness.
Up to this hour (2 A. M.), four bodies
have been taken out of the sleeper, and
it is feared that the total number of
deaths will run up to twenty-five and
possibly more, as the car was fall. It is
difficult to get particulars at this hour.
Raleigh, N. C Sept. 27. Some days
go, Secretary of War Proctor wrote to
Governor Folle in regard to the proposed
removal of Geronimo and his band of
Indians to Western North Carolina. To
day Governor Folle wrote a reply.
He says that such a settlement of the
Indians in North Carolina would create a
great dlsssutisfaction, particularly if the
location should be in the western portion
of the state on the lands to be purchased
from the Cherokee Indians, as proposed
by the secretary of war.
These lands the governor says are not
reservation lands, but were bought from
the Cherokee?, who are now decreasing
in numbers and will soon die, and the
lands will then be settled by white peo
The rovernor, in conclusion, suggests
to Secretary Proctor that the Indians be
colonized in Vermont, in the portions of
that state now being abandoned by white
people. The governor informs the secre
tary that no happier spot could be chosen
for bis purpose.

SALEM NEWS ITEMS,
Salem, Or- Sept. 27. Superintendent
Downing, of the Oregon penitentiary, is

that two lazy convicts in that institution
had cut off their hands to avoid work.

Oregon penitentiary wbo had performed
similar amputations, and showed their
admiration by imitation. The self-am-putators
are to be put at hard labor as

A NEW TARIFF SCHEME,
Baltimore, Sept. 27. Appraiser Shar
retts has transmitted to the secretary of
the treasury bis report, in reply to a re
quest for a compilation of the best feat
ures of the tbree tann bills presented to
It recommends the protection ot borne
industries, but urges that raw material
and goods not indigenous to the United
States should be admitted free, especially
when they do not interfere with borne in
dustries, as wool, tin, salt and lumber.
As foreign wool must be used to mix with
the domestic article to compete with the
foreign, it should be tree, as the high cost
limits the production of raw wool here.
If it is free, the mixed tariff of the senate
bill is superfluous, but, if the tariff on
raw wool is to remain, a mixed tariff is
ndispensible and there must be a pound
duty on raw wool, together with an ad
valorem duty on manufactured articles.

THE BEARING SEA DISPUTE.
London, Sept. 29 Lord Salisbury has
instructed Sir Julian Paunuefole, the
British minister at Washington, to con
suit the convenience of Secretary of State
Blaine in reference to the discussion of
the Belli ing sea dispute. Negotiations
are to proceed quietly and continuously
and inquiry Is to be carelully pursued in
to the question of Canadian compensa
tion for the seizure of vessels belonging
to Canada in the waters in contention
No immediate pressure, however, is to
be exercised upon the government at-
Washington with regard to settling the
international question involved and noth
ing like a formal demand for a speedy
conclusion of the affair is to be allowed
The line of action which has been de
cided upon by Lord Salisbury, is based
on bis expectation that Secretary Blaine,
wbo is just now hampered by the lease of
the Alaska Sealing and Fishing company,
will be more leady to accord what Eng
land regards as a just settlement of the
dispute upon the approaching expiration
of the company's lease. When that
occurs it is expected that the British
government will push the negotiations
with a little more energy.

charge before a congressional investigat
ing committee. It charges that three
fourths of the clerks employed by the
commission weie not required to pass the
examination, that one of the clerks gave
out or sold the examination papers, and
that the matter was brought to the atten
tion ot President Cleveland by Commis
sioner Oberly, but was hushed up for
reasons personal to Commissioner Lyman.

stabbing is said to have been in self
defense. He is in jail in this city, await

by fire this morning.

cause is unknown. The flames spread
rapidly, and in half an hour the - entire
block was a mass of nre. tattle water
was at band, and there was no service
whatever, and there was no means of ar
resting the spreading flasies. Building
after building caught, and in spite of all
efforts the destruction went on, until there
was nothing left which could be destroy
ed, not even a shed. AH the business
portion of Cambria was wiped out. The
buildings being entirely of wood, the des
truction was so rapid that there was not
even time to get out ttieir contents.

insurance is about $120,000. The post
office and telegraph office were destroyed.

ers elected by the legislature in payment
ot their salaries, because their bonds had
not been approved by bim, as the till re
quired, before entering upon their duties.
Judge Boise refesed to grant the order.on
the ground that be doubted tne authority

seized a cloth lying near and wrapped it
about her face and bead, and tried to
tear her clothing off, without effect, her
clothing burning completely off. No one

Fautasie had two .beats, Hero two, and
Velox one. Pools are now selling, Fauta
sie at $10, Hero $5. and Velox fit. This
heat, Fantusie bas tbe pole, Velox second,
and Hero third. In this heat Faniasie -broke
at the first turn, which gnve Velox
the pole, and three lengths in the lead; at
tbe three-quarter post Faniasie was up to
Velox, wilb Hero ten yards behind. Fan
tansie broke again and lost a length. De
cision, Velox first, Faniasie second and
Hero third. Time 30.
Tbe time shows that the drivers were
driving to win. Each horse now bas two
heats, and tbe next will decide the contest.
The pools are selling irregularly, but
average Fantasie $i, Velox $q and Hero
$5. This the 8th heat Velox will have
the pole, Fantasie 2d and Hero 3d. This
heat was the all interesting heat of the
race and resulted as follows: Velox 1st,
Fantasie ad and Hero 3d. This gives
the race to Velox. Time of last heat,
2:34. The horses trotted quite evenly
and Velox won by a length. Hero was
two lengths behind Fantasie.
There is much dissatisfaction over the
result of the last heat It is evident that
they did not make the time in this heat
that was made before, but this could
easily occur, and still have honest driv
ing. Trotting race No. 12 is the next race
called. It is for three-year-olds, mile
heats, best three in five. Purse $200.
There are two horses in the race. Anita
got the pole and Nervissa 2d. Nervissa
soon took the pole and held it to the end
of the race, winning the heat in 3:01)4.
Pools have been selling C20 on Ner
vissa to f4 on Anita. Neither horse
broke during the heat, Nervissa came in
a length ahead.
There are not many visitors on the
grounds to-day, and the trotting race is of
little interest to those present. , te race
has been -made two best in three, and the
second heat is won by Ne visas, giving . her
the race. Time, 3:06.
Tbe next is a half mile dash of four run
ning horses, aud cornea oa immediately.
Monty Sharp gets the pole,-Bod ie second,
Kife third, and Jack Swift fourth. This
race is a sweepstake of $15 each, aud the
society adds $50, aggregating $110.
Tbe contestants are all looal hbrses.
Kife is tbe favorite at tbe pool boxes, and
sells $10, to $3 and $4 for the other horses.
The race was run in 53 seconds, Kife 1 st,
Monty Sharp 2d, Jack Swift 3d, and Bodio
4th. The horses took this position soon
after starting, and remained so to the end
of the race. This is the last race today,
and will end the racing excitement for the
season. Many who have lost money on tbe
races may profit by the experience, as some
of the races have taught many that tho
fastest horse does not at all times win.
