Tbc New Tariff Bill From a
3..oial toTnK AaTOHIAN.l
Londox, Nqy. 14. In a speech to
hi constitutenta at Leeds last night
on tho United States tariff question,
Sir Lionel Playfair, after giving a
tariff history said the promoters of
the tariff sought to prove that the
measure was necessary in order to
equalize tho difference between tho
higher wages in the United States and
the lower wages in Europe; bat the nr
gumenfwould not bear examination.
There is," said the speaker, "no
connection as a whole. Wages in
America nave already been reduced
under Tiigh tariff and thero seems to
be no tendency to raise them. Wages
are thenighestin unprotected indus
tries and lowest in protected ones."
Sir Lionel cited a host ot statistics
K show that the consumer always
pai&extra duties. He entered upon
& lengthy dBcasaion on the effects ot
the new tariff bill, contending that
they would be disastrous to agricul
ture and farmers will find that while
rtha foreign markets were dwindling,
every, necessity was increasing m

WAsnuiaTok, Not. 14. Senator
Sherman, in ah interview to-day said:
"The nwStsSKous result of the re
cent elections will be in the hardening
of the times, caused by a distrust of
the financial policy of the incoming
house of representatives. All sorts of
financial schemes of the wildest
character, will be proposed, and what
ever may be the outcome they will
make capital timid and arrest many'
business enterprises that were on the
noiht of being executed.
"The first effect is a panic in New
xorfc and an eager desire of every
prudent man to realize on all doubtful
securities: The tariff act would have
set on foot many new enterprises,
which will be prevented or delayed by
the doubt created as to the industrial
policy of the future."

IaeiiflBtfl of the Fearful Railroad Aeeldent
f Wedarsday Night.
Robert Cowan, stage carpenter of
the "Hearts of Oak" company, was
with his comnany at Salem last
Wednesday night, and immediately on
hearing of the .terrible railroad disas
ter, he went to the scene of the wreck.
A representative of The AsroniAX
met him last evening at the theater,
and heard his statement. Mr. Cowan
aaid that 'the scene presented was
almost heartrending; wounded pas-"
sengers were scattered all about, many
of them so badly injured as to be
almost helpless, while moans, sobs,
tears and groans from the injured and
fronvtbeir accompanying friends who
were unhurt, filled the air, and touched
with pity the heart of every listener.
Mr. Cowan remained on the spot
until 4 o'clook Thursday morning, and
accompanied the wounded who were
taken to Salem... Large fires were
built near the Wreck that the willing
helpers could see to render the de
sired assistance to the suffering pas
sengers, and this in contrast to the
darkmeas of the , surroundings away
from the radius of the light, formed a
wild, weird Boene which will never be
effaced from the minds of the specta
tors. He thinks the accident was
caaaed by the old and decayed timbers
of the trestle, for the most of the
structure dropped down .with the train
on it, leaving the cars standing on the
track, some twelve orjifteen feet be
low the level of the trestle. It was a

Special by The United Pres3
PoRTiiAja), Nov. 14. This afternoon
articles of incorporation were filed in
Portland of the South Coast Construc
tion Company, by J. H. Smith, Will
iam Beid and E. T. Johnson, specially
for tho purpose ot completing the
unfinished portion of the Astoria &
South Coast railroad, both to the
Southern Pacific line in Washington
county, Oregon, and to Portland via
the Northern Pacific Company's line
near Linton on tho Willamette river.
The London bondholders, it is said,
are to supply the necessary money,
and have expressed a desire that J. H.
Smith and William Beid co-operate
together in seeing the road completed
not later than June 30, 1892, and fifty
two miles byJune 30, 1891.
This concerted action resulted in
the formation of tho South Coast Con
struction Company to-day and meets,
it is claimed, -with the cordial approval
and support of the people ot Astoria
and the directors of tho Astoria and
South Coast Bailway company.
A cableirram. from London was re

railroad contractor and William Beid,

holders had adiusted everything satis

engineer had left for Astoria.
A BOLD KIDNAPER.
Entices a littfc Boy Away
Special to The Astoria.!
Boston, Nov. 14. A bold case of
kidnaping occurred about 7 o'clock
this morning. At that hour it is
claimed that an unknown man enticed
Calmer W. Bryant away from the
yard of the Childrens' Mission, No.
277 Fremont street
Children of the institution say that
for the last three weeks a man has
beenBtanding around the building
and several times asked the Bryant
boy to accompany him on a walk or
go with him to a certain place, but
each time tho boy refused.
Mrs. Ellen Bryant, the boy's mother
works in a restaurant on Hollis street.
She had two children besides Calmer,
who was only placed in the institution
temporarily, having been there but
seven weeks. Mrs. Bryant cannot
think of any reason "why her boy
should be sought for. His father is
dead and she has no relatives that she
thinks would steal the boy and she
knows of no one that answers to the
description of the man.
"Hearts of Oak.'1
Last evening at the opera house the
above play was rendered by James A.
Heme and his fine company, as well
as possible under the circumstances,
for the personal baggage of the actors,
as well as all the scenery and stage
accessories failed to arrive, having
been detained in consequence of the
wreck on the Southern Pacific near
Salem. Marion Abbott, the leading
lady, who plays the part ot Chrystal
Dennison, was obliged to wear her
traveling dress in the whole six acts,
and this, together with the entire
absence ot the stage pharapher
nalia, whioh goes so far toward mak
ing tho piece attractive and realistic,
seriously marred tho effect of tho
play. The company is a strong one,
and every character was well por
trayed. Heme, Clarke and Chippen
dale, as Terry Dennison, Uncle Dayy
and Owen Garroway, were splendid,
Nellie Regan as Tawdry, the servant,
furnished most of the comedy, the
babv was a model infant, and little
Hazel Regan as Little Chrystal won
her way to the hearts of all. Many of
the scenes were quite affecting and
the entire piece is full of interest.
