DEATH AND DISASTER.
A Terrible Railroad Collision Occurs
', ' In Wisconsin. . .
"Hudson, , Wis., June 9. Five men
were instantly killed and four were
badly injured by a collision on the
Omaha railroad near Hudson junction
this afternoon. The trains were rnn
ning at a high rate of speed, and a
sharp ourve afforded the crews no pos
sible escape. : The way freight, west
bound, was running at the rate of 18
miles an hour, when, upon nearing" a
sharp curve on a down grade, it came
upon a work train backing east at a
speed of 85 miles an hour. '
The collision was something terrific.
On the rear of the work train was the
boarding car, in which were four men
belonging to the work . crew. They
were never aware of their danger, and
were " undoubtedly instantly killed.
The car took fire, and three bodies were
burned in the wreck. The fireman of
the work train was instantly killed, but
the body was recovered. Both engines
were totally wrecked. ",-'"'"' "' '
The wreck was caused by the diso
bedience of orders by Engineer James
Owens, of the work train, and the con-'
ductor; who were given right-of-way
for the west-bound track. They forgot
their orders, and took the east-bound
track, and did not discover their error
until too late. ' Owens is nearly crazy,
and a guard has been placed over him.
The damage is estimated at $60,000.
INTO A STONE , QUARRY.,
Twenty Cyellsts Injured In a Road Race
: V- In New Jersey.'
New York, June 9. -While turning a
sharp corner at the foot of a steep hill,
20' riders in a five-mile road race near
Passaic, N. J., ran into a big stone at
the mouth of a stone quarry, and every
wheel was wrecked. '' That none of the
riders was killed is extraordinary.
' Sixty- cyclists had entered the con
test, and by the time the steep hill was
reached 20 riders were bunched. They
did not slow up for the hill, but dashed
down at full speed. As they reached
the1 sharp corner they attempted to turn
into the river road.' The momentum
was too great, however, and every man
lost control of his wheel. As the lead
ers went down amid their wrecked
wheels, their followers ran into them,
amid the'wildest confusion. ' , "
A cry of horror went up from the
spectators on the hill, and several
women fainted. Half a hundred men
were soon at the scene of the accident,
and the work of extricating the injured
was begun. : Several of the riders were
dragged out unconscious.' George
Peddy, of Undhurst, was thrown 20
feet away, half dazed, between piles of
stone, with a broken leg. He had been
among the first to strike the obstruc
tion. The stone which the leaders
struck weighed fully' 10 tons,' and upon
all sides of it lay bleeding ' and bruised
riders. ' Parts of wheels and racing
Buits were scattered all around." " The
men were freed from the wreokage and
assisted, to a shed near by, where the
spectators bound up ; "their : wounds.
Peddy waS the only one seriously hurt
but none escaped without some injury
and many of ' them had to be taken
home in carriages. ' :'; ':';

' Mexico City, June 9. A boiler ex
ploded this morning in the print works
of Norcega Bros., in Puebla, causing
the death of 60 or more persons, the
number not being positively known, as
it has been impossible, to remove the
debris caused by . the explosion. -: A
part of the boiler was carried high in
the air, and precipitated on the roof of
a house in the neighborhood, killing an
old man and three children. An iron
beam from the t works ! was 'hurled
through the roof of another house, car
rying away a part of the front wall and

- Providence, R. I.June 9.-'-Arthur
Lahiff,' a cyclist,' while racing against
an electric car, met a tragic death.
Just outside the Rogers Williams' Park
the roadway is quite steep. Trolley
cars are in the habit of bowlingdown
the incline at a high rate of speed, and
many cyclists have tried to beat them
in races. . Last evening ' when a '.car
headed down the hill Lahiff was along
side. 'He was measured up by the mo
tor man for a race and the pontest began
in earnest. ' Suddenly Lahiff was seen
to tumble and make a complete somer

Denver, Col.; June 8. A special to
the Rocky Mountain News from Miles
City, Mont., says: -r ';, .; , ,
The rumor sent abroad that settlers
were returning with their families to
their homes is , not true. -About '50
families, refugees from the Indians, are
still in this city, and others are coming
in daily. As many as seven and eight
families are huddled together in one
cottage with no thought of returning to.!
their homes while the Indians are off
their reservation., V . . - , ?
A ' school teacher, ' who had been
teaching on Otter creek, near the reser
vation, nd about 60 miles from here,
arrived last evening, having ridden the
entire distance on a bicycle in one day.
She reports seeing several small bands
of Indians prowling among the bills on
foot. Over 200 Indians are off the
reservation, scattered in small bands
roaming through the hills and commit
ting depredations, and devouring every
thing in their line of march. There
are said to be 1,300 Indians on the
reservation. . The dance houses donated
to the Indians some time, ago by Cap
tain Stouch and . others, will be torn
down and the large drum taken away
from them, and all "bad medicine"

Sheriff Gibb and Stock Inspector
Smith leave tomorrow for the scene of
the trouble, with warrants properly
executed for the arrest of 'White Bull,

Gibb says he is confident that Captain
Stouch, the agent, will co-operate with
him in the arrest of the men. ;!, ,r ;
The following message was sent to
Senator Carter tonight by County At
torney T. J. Porter: !
Agent Stouch yesterday turned over
Stanley, but he has not secured any
evidence against him, and seems de
termined to keep the sheriff from mak
ing any investigation. Five other In
dians are ' suspected, and 'vigorous
efforts to secure evidence should be put
forth. , Stouch absolutely refuses to co
operate with the sheriff in Securing
evidence, and is delaying and thwart-;
ing the sheriff in every possible man
ner. Thursday . he again ordered the
sheriff's deputies off the - reservation.
Indians claim to the sheriff that Stouch
agreed to accept the surrender of Stan
ley in full satisfaction of the murder.
Stouch is certainly inefficient,, and I
therefore urgently request that he be
immediately instructed to co-operate
with the sheriff in securing evidence
against ' all' these murderers and urge,
that he be replaced by some competent
man."',';:'-.'' ' "'. s '';' ' ''..';'. 'r. :"(' ',
A . BABY KIDNAPED.
Stolen From the Arms of a Woman
( -; ' Who Had Its Keeping. ! ;'.!'.
San Francisco,' June 8. Saturday
morning, the 19-mOnths-old baby of
Charles ' Wincklemann, a well-known
sporting man, was kidnaped from the
custody of Mrs. Becklow, at 807 Fell
street. The parents had not been liv
ing together, for some time and the
baby had been given by. its father into
the care of Mrs. Becklow. j. The mother
was permitted to visit the child. When
she called Saturday Mrs. Becklow was
dressing the boy. There was a ring at
the door bell, and when Mrs. Becklow
responded, the ' baby , was roughly
grabbed from her arms by a man, who
carried it to a buggy near by, where an
accomplice was awaiting him, and
drove away. Since then nothing has
been seen of the boy or .his abductors.
In the absence of a decree of divorce,
neither the father nor the' mother can
make any legal claim to obtain the ex
clusive custody of the child. ' ,

markable, speed. Her final trial is un

THE CUBAN SITUATION.
Spain Has No Pity for Those Crowded
, Into the Fortified Towns. , .
. Chicago, June 9. The Tribune's
speoial correspondence dated Havana,
Cuba,' June 2, says:
- Spain holds the rural population of
Cuba as prisoners of war in the prison
camps. Unlike any other nation which
claims to be civilized she does not feed
her prisoners of war.
There is no means of learning the f
exact number' of concentrados." An j
American ' consul ; who has made : a I
careful study, says it is more than 25,- l
000. - The best opinion places the num
ber between 190,000 and 200,000. ". In

--'-An Appeal From Matanxas. .
' New York, June 9. A speoial to
the Herald from Havana says: ; .
A strange appeal on .,- behalf of the
starving and dying : concentrados in
Matanzas, who excited pity in the
hearts of General Lee and i Mr. Cal
houn, has been made to the people of
the United States. - k-'y'.: -:?':.
' Since the United States government
has begun measures for the relief of its
citizens in Matanzas, the desperate
plight of the Cuban reconcentrados there'
has resulted in a petition signed by a
hundred of them, in whioh they beg in
the name of common . humanity that
they may be included in tli charity.,
The petition is headed, "An appeal to
the United States.",. It is now on its
way to Washington. - The principal
part follows: ,'. ,. -1 vy'' ;;'.' ,4 ' 4 ,. '
"First and foremost, let it : be said
that in .unhappy Cuba we oan do
nothing to help our suffering countrymen.--
The pacifioos that have huddled
in our city - would be looked upon as
traitors for so .'doing, and as such we
would be summarily dealt with. ' We
must not feel : for them; ' we must be
blind and deaf to their sufferings, and
do nothing that can in any way inter
fere with Weyler's policy of extermina
tion. : ;.': !.,''.- .:. ;, v ';. ;"' ,.,' :'".;'.,
"We have to witness day after day
scenes of : horror which , no language
can describe, and yet no voice can be
lifted to protest, against them. '; .To
Spain we cannot appeal for succor. ' She
sis well acquainted with the present
condition of affairs n Cuba, and so far
not a farthinsr has come to us from her.
and vet we have sent her our money
freely whenever the Spanish people
have been in want or distress. ' -',,' '. '.
' : "Upward of 10,000 of the victims of
this savage system of warfare , have
been crowded into Matanzas without
providing for their most natural wants;
and after they have been compelled to
abandon all they have in the ' world,
they are to be seen in crowds, - from 8
o'clock in the; day until late in the
night imploring charity. .? ' (-' ,,
In any other country this state jf j
affairs would have brought on disturb
ances and riot; vet our ' people, suffer
ing at they are, have not done anything
that could i in' any way disturb order.
Can there be a better illustration of , a
peaceful disposition? , ' : , .
."Tender, loving mothers of America, ,
tO you in particular we appeal in our
humane undertaking. ' V Send . us . the
mighty aid of your motherly co-operation;
enlist in; our. crusade against
crime and barbarity and the. blessings
of thousands will rise to heaven.as a fit
tribute hymn in your praise.' . : , Think
that ' at your very doors there' are

love, and who day after day see their
little ones perish in our streets out of
sheer hunger,' and in most -cases with
out a piece of rag to cover their naked
ness. j ;.'.'i .'.;'-.'';,( ."'. ''' .--.' -.
"As for us, we cannot, do our work .
openly. ,: We have to .beg for food for
the hungry arid clothing for the naked,
concealing ourselves and our names as
if we were doing something wrong, and
we therefore suggest that if any relief
is to come it should be entrusted to
the American consuls for distribution
and we ; would 1 also suggest that the
sending of help in the way of provisions'

it might, give the officials an : oppor

"i '''' " Iuty on Tea, '". -t
- Washington, June 9. In the senate ,
today Quay presented several proposed
amendments to the tariff bill. One of
them proposes to strike out the duty on
tea and substitute a duty of 1 per cent
ad valorem on articles proposed by the
bill to be placed on the free list, these
duties to continue until July, 1901, af
ter which the articles shall be exempt ,
from duty. Another amendment pro
poses a proviso to the paragraph fixing
a duty on iron ore, so ore from foreign !(
mines owned by American citizens and
imported for their own use and not for
sale shall be exempt from duty.' m
- The lumber; paragraph, which has
been more stubbornly contested than '
any feature of the bill thus far, was
disposed of by defeating the motion of
Vest to place white pine on the free list
ayes 20, noes 88. " The oontest was
mainly significant in breaking party

Theodore Durrant may' look forward

the socialist deputy, who had referred
to some of his colleagues as "police

and violence. - M. Brisson, after , busi

Juares, who interpellated the govern
ment on what he called an "atcempt to .
muzzle a deputy.," basing his refusal
on the ground that no notice of inter

uproar followed. : M. Brisson Was pale
with anger, but kept himself well un
