A Frcigbt Train Daslies into a Street
Car With Dcauly Result. '
Tlireo Aro Killed Outright ami Olhen
K.Vicli-l to Die Hull mail Kmiil.iyeg
Chicago. July ' 17. Another horrible
disaster attributable to Btreets crossing
the grade of railroads occurred this
evening. The Incoming passenger train
on the Grand Trunk road crashed into
a crowded street car at Forty-ninth
street, killing Charles Perkins, John
Dillon and Mrs. Maggie Murphy, and
wounding eight others, of whom two
will probably die-- Forty-ninth street
crossing is a network of tracks, and
has always been regarded as a danger
ous spot. A long freight train going
west had just passed, and the tower
flagman raised the gates. This was a
signal that the way was clear, and the
driver of the car started ahead. The
passenger train, which was rapidly ap
proaching from the west, struck the
street car squarely in the middle, turn
ing It around end hurling It thirty feet
from the point where It was struck.
Some of the passengers managed to
save themselves by Jumping. The po
lice arrested the engineer and firemen
on the train. The engineer said, he did
not see the street car until it was on
the track, and so close that it was im
possible for him to stop. The tower
man did not see the passenger train
until after J;he gates were raised and
the street car started ahead.
FOR ITS OWN PROTECTION.
The Department Taking Steps to Bring
Gold Into the Treasury.
Washington, July 17 The Star this
evening gives publicity to the following
statement regarding guffd paymjents
from the United States treasury at
New York: Considerabl effort is being
made by financial agents here to dis
cover the notice behind these payments,
but the department is as close-mouthed
as a clam. The explanation got through
private sources is that the department
is trying to take advantage of the
scarcity of small and -convenient cur
rency for internal business to pinch the
banks, as the banks have pinched the
government, by steering gold- The
banks are greatly in need of small bills
for current business transactions and
use in the agricultural districts. The
theory - advanced Is that If they can
noget what they neen of this sort
of currency by other means they will
have to make terms with the treasury,
which will lnvolvethe exchanging of
gold or gold certificates In large quanti
ties for notes and certificates of small
FIGHTING FOR SILVER.
Boise. Idaho, July 17 The following
message has been sent to leading citi
zens in various counties of the state
by Governor McConnell:
"Please call a meeting and select
delegates, to attend the bl-metalltc
meetings in Chicago August 1st, and in
Washington August 7th. The on
slaught on silver demands prompt ac
tion and earnest co-operation. I will
commission whoever you elect Select
as many as will volunteer to go at
their own expense."

ENGLAND'S WHEAT CROP.
' London, July 17. The Mark Express
says: The wheat harvest is well for
ward in the south of England. . The re
cent rains came too late to help any
cereals but saved the oats and bene
fitted the barley elsewhere. Some ex
cellent Judges estimate the yield of
wheat will be twenty-eight bushels per
acre on 2,000,000 acre". Our estimate for
the United Kingdom is 2,100,000 acres,
the smallest acreage planted for half a
century, with an average yield that will
possibly be nearly a low as that of
1886, namely, 2,689 bushels to the hun-

the First, which Is daily expected-

eral prison guards. One of the pris
oners who was asked to enter into the
murderous attempt, refused, and it wa
through him the prison authorities be
came aware of the plot. Thej governor,
when he heard of the facta, immedi
ately pardoned the prisoner who had
courage end manliness enough to "pre
vent the human slaughter.
He Does Not Lay the Present Crisis to
'. the Sherman Law.
Omaha, Neb:, July 17 Senator Tel
ler of .(Colorado wa on his way home
today from a visit to the World's Fair.
Talking about the silver situation he
said the people of Colorado in general

Gqvernot Walte and others. While

ductive of any great damage, he did
not doubt that before long they would
be on record In the easter money mark

Chicago, July 17. The western roads
are at last ready to come down on the
World's Fair rates, and ready to get
almost to the bottom. The St. Paul,
Northwestern, Atchison and Rock II

sold every day good for the passage on

return passage from Chicago any day
up to and including the final return
limit of about thirty days. One way
the rates between important terminals
are to be based proportionately upon
whatever reduction may be made or
agreed upon for round-trip rates. The

ment of a fare of a one and one-third
rate for the folind trip for points with'
in 200 miles from Chicago; and aone-
fare rate from points over 200 miles
from. Chicago. There is every pros
pect that the association will 'yield
these points. The passenger business
for July is showing a marked decrease
from June, and the roads are begin
ning to feel uneasy-
