tTj f "Wrick Ib Mexico Expire,
,v ?- Cttt or Mexico, March 4. Many
WvisMl ud wounded passengers con
tiM to arrive in this city from the ter
rible wreck cn thelnteroceanic railway.
Haay of the wounded and bleeding were
brovght to the city in the relief train,
bmt hmndreds of those able to walk
the attempt to reach shelter in
the emrrotmding villages and strung ont
Ml the way to the capital in a pitable
proceecioB. Many fell by the wayside
i'weie afterwards picked np mare
dead than alive by other relief trains
which followed, at intervals. Hundreds
are still camped at the scene, sitting
around small fires kindled from wreck
age. Bleeding pilgrims are also camped
vat places more distant from the disaster
ana others are .cared for by the hospital
. jeoeie Of Los'Ries, CouianiaandAytola.
Jast what the mortality is it is impossi
ble as- yet to say. It is exceedingly
probable; that within the next few days
aeore bodies will be found-in secluded
epotn in the vicinity of the wreck.
Many thinking they were strong
. eBOttjrh to walk t he 22 miles into the
cifymade the attempt. Overcome by
weakness they sank down by the dozen
and i.few have been found dead where
they fell. The military hospital in the
City of Mexico, where the wonnded
were conveyed from the relief trains by
order of President Diaz still echoes with
the groans of the dying and the de
lirious mutterings of many unfortunates.

affair and materially change public
sentiment. Numerous suits for dam-

killed and injured in the wreck.
(villi Cutting Overland Knles.
Los Angeles, March 4. The cut in
overland railroad rates continues. One
v.read booked a party to the east, giving
ieiolia'rebate check for $7.50, which is
' 'a raise of 2.50 on yesterday's cut. The
-""agents of both "the Southern Pacific and
Santa Fe strenuously deny that there is
any war. It is learned from a source
that ought to be reliable that by the loth
the present attempt at secrecy will be
abandoned, and that the brass baud
style of drumming up business aud let
tia&tjie public know that the scalping
knives are out, will be adopted.

Dexvek, March 4 One of the most
systematic and ingenious check raising
swindles that wa? ever successfully
carried out in America has just -been un
earthed in this city, the victims being
the Umon Pacific company, nearly every
bank in Denver and several dry goods
and other houses. The methods used
by the swindlers show them to be mas
ter criminals, as daring as they are dis
honest. Early last month the Union
Pacific pay car left Omaha on its regu
lar monthly trip to Salt Lake City with
the wages of the company's employes,
closely following tho car came a gang
of check raisers, and; its members left
the marks of their skill with acid and
peri, in nearly every town where Union
Pacific employes reside. The ex
tent of their operations and the lots to
the company on those who fooler the
raised salary checks is not yet ally
known, but enough has leaked out to
show that the check raisers havejietted
thousands of dollars by the s windle. The
full force of the Union Pacine" detective
corps is at work on the matter, as well
as the police authorities in Denver and
all the other towns along the lino.
The gang visited the hotels and sa
loons most frequented by railroad men,
where a large portion of the checks had
been cashed or traded in and bought
them up for cash. In value the checks
ranged from $10 to f 100, but each-'one
was skillfully raised -to 110 and passed
for that amount at banks and stores. In
every instance the raised check was
tendei-ed for some small purchase, so
that the gang got nearly the entire
amount cash. In Denver the checks ul
timately reached different city banks,
where they were pronounced all right
and forwarded to Omaha.
The Union Pacific auditor then passed
all the $110 checks as being all right and
commenced the balancing of'accountS.
When the returned checks were com
pared with the stub3 of the check book;
the fact became apparent that the checks
had been tampered with and work at
once commenced by the railroad's de
tective.!. It is supposed that the gang
worked west to Salt Lake and then es
caped to the coast.

What a First Class Fare Means.
There are 6ome people who imagine
that wealth entitles them to privileges
not accorded to the general public and
exempts them from obligations and rules
that others are disposed to obey. An inci
dent which occurred on ono of our ocean
steamers conveys a wholesome lesson to
the purse proud contemners of the rights
of the majority. A family pi unlimited
wealth had secured the best accommo
dation the steamer afforded.

SILVER DOLLARS SCARCE.
A Bet Which Proved an Unexpected State
of Affairs In Washington.
A party of gentlemen were discussing
the financial conditions a couple of days
ago when one of them remarked upon
the unusual scarcity of silver dollars in
circulation in Washington. He stated
that it was difficult to meet a person
who had a silver dollar in his pocket,
whereas a few months ago the cart
wheels were more plentiful than the pa
per securities. His assertion was ques
tioned by one of his companions, where
upon he remarked that he would be
willing to make a wager of the cigars
to prove it.
"I will bet, " he remarked, "that you
cannot within one hour meet a man
whom you know who has a silver dol
lar in his pocket. "
The other, who had an extremely large
acquaintance, eagerly accepted the gage
and took up a position down at the cor
ner of Fifteenth and F streets. Every
friend and acquaintance who came along
was requested to exchange a silver dol
lar for four quarters. Scores of $1 bills
were pulled ont of pedestrians' pockets,
but the man with the change wanted
only the dollar of his daddies. At the
end of the hour he paid for the cigars,
because he found not a man in his quest
who had a hard dollar in his pocket I
don't know the reason for the scarcity
of such coin, but its existence is be
yond doubt. Washington Star.

Vowels In the Hawaiian Tobchc.
The Hawaiian language is composed
mainly of vowels and a few consonants
put in to vary tho monotony. And the
beauty of the system is that there is no
waste. Every vowel is pronounced. For
instance, when the American eye winks
at the appearance of the simple word
"naauao," the glib native rollB out the
five syllables with neatness and dispatch.
This means "enlighten." Double vow
els are very frequent, tut never a diph
thong. Three vowels are not uncom
mon, and, as above, four and sometimes
more are found unseparated by conso
nants. In the mouth of the uneducated
native the language is apt to be explo
sive, but the higher classes speak it with
a fluent grace that surpasses the French
or tho Italian. In sound it somewhat
resembles the general flow of the con
tinental European languages, for the
vowels all have the French quality, and
the accents are not dissimilar. Wash
