As Many More Injured in a
LATEST REPORTS OF DISASTER
The Latest News From the Inter
Oceanic Railroad Wreck is
City of Mexico via Galveston, March
1. It la now known that 200 people
were killed and injured In the terrible
wreck on the Inter-Oceanlo Railway
yesterday. It Is Impossible to say as
yet how many of this number are dead,
as the wreck has not yet all been
cleared away and reports are very
conflicting. It 1b feared, "however, that
ov-jr 100 are dead.
The train was an excursion carrying
nearly 1200 passengers returning- from
a pilgrimage to the Sacre Monte
Shrine. Near Pedrl Blancha there is
a sharp curve and at this point from
some reason as yet not definitely learn
ed, Ave coadhes jumped the track and
went down Che side of Che mountain.
Three of tihem were smashed complete,

word was received In this city a re
lief train, was seu.out with surgeons
and a wrecking1 force and the work of
rescuing- the wounded and taking out
the dead has 'been progressing' since. As
fast as possible the wounded are
brought to this city, President Dla
having ordered the military hospital
with Its staff to care for all survivors.
A gendarme who returned on one of
the relief trains says (he saw fourteen
bodies taken from one coach. The
bodies were imangtled- In a most shock
ing manner; some of them were In
fragments, and the llm'bs and heads
and bodies were mixed up In such a
manner as to make Identification al
most Impossible. The scene albout the
wreck was most 'sickening as well as
sorrowful. Relatives were searching
for missing members of their families,
and women and children who had lost
husbands and fathers were crying- and
moaning! la a heartrending- manner.
Further detail from, the scene are ex
pected later this evening, but the tele,
graph, service is unsatisfactory. This
Is the most serious wreck In Mexico

diers went through a bridge, 400 of
them being killed. . The most careful

TRAGEDY NBAiR BAKER CITY.
Two Miners Shot, One Killed and the
Other Seriously Wounded.
Baker City, March 1. 'News was
brought to this city this evening that
an awful tragedy occurred yesterday
tfternoon near the Sparta mining- camp
situated thirty miles from here, in
which James George lost his life and
L. A. Lurohln was seriously wounded.
The murder was committed) by G. E.
Chamberlain, who used a Winchester
shot gun. Ill feeling had existed for
some time between the parties, which
arcs: over a disputed placer 1 claim.
Chamlberlain took his victims unawares
coming- upon them while they were at
work In -the mine. The first shot took
effect In Lurchln's neck, which felled
him to the ground, and he was left for
dead. Chamberlain then blew out
George's brains. A 15-year-okl son of
the deceased was a witness to thehor
lible deed and as the boy started to
run was fired upon, but the shot scat
tered around him. The deceased leaves
a wife and eleven children. The mur
derer Is still at large.
THE fcUUENE SENSATION.
Dugene, Or., March l.-The trial of
Miss Mary Berger on a charge of send
ing obscene matter through the malls
was the principal topic of conversation
throughout the city today. She was
examined before United States Com
missioner Walton and the greater part
of the day was consumed in the exami
nation. She was bound over to ap
pear before the United States , jury,
with bonds fixed at $200.
The principal evidence on which she
was arrested was that she had written
a letter to iMrs. McKenney, from Fair
mount, and Mrs. McKenney answered
it, sending a detective to watch at the
postoffice and see who should can for
the letter. This detective swore posl
Uvely in the trial of Mrs. McKenney,
that Miss Berger called and got that
letter from the Fairmount postoffice
on a certain day. It was thought to bt
conclusive that the person who wrote
the letter to which this was An answei
was the author of many obscene mis
sives that have been received by prom
inent ladies. Today Miss Berger prov.
ed an alibi to the charge, that She wa
not at Fairmount at the time stated
by the witness, ibut evidence was in
troduced that had a tendency to fas
ten the crime upon her. Many think
she is Innocent, and many think her
guilty, but it Is the general belief that
some body also was acting as a confed
erate with her. The case promises hv
teresting developments when it comes
up in court.
