A COLLISION AT ASHLAND.
A Following Freight Plunges '.Into
Another Smashing the Caboose
And Throwing several Cars
From the Track.
Ashland, Neb. Feb. 1.1. An extra
fast utocl; train, at four o'clock Friduy
morning, ran into the end of the regular
freight train standing on the truck here
above the depot. The engine of the fast
freight was almost demolished. The ca
boose of the train ran into was totally
destroyed, and several cars thrown from
the track and piled on top of each
other. Thirteen persons sitting in the ca
boose at the time of the wreck escaped
by crawling out from under the debris
and sustained no serious injuries. How
they escaped is a miracle. The wreck ine
train is here with a full fore of men who
have worked all the forenoon in clearing
up the track. Regular passenger trains
are compelled to go around by the side
track. The fast train was a large one
loaded with cattle, sheep and hgs.
The trains were two regular freights
that pulled out of Lincoln one after the
other. The first tru?n had orders to pick
up stock cars along the route, and before
starting the conductor told the train fol
lowing to look out for it. The train
was standing on the track here, doing
this work, when the second train came
on and plunged into the first. The men
who were in the caboose knew nothing
of the second train's approach, as the
windows were curtuintd.
THE CQWI.ES TARIFF BILL
It Is Amended By Striking Out the
Washington, Feb. 15. The house
committee on appropriations today re
solved to report favorably a substitute
for the Cowles internal revenue bill.
The substitute provides for the repeal of
the tobacco tax and omit the "moon
shine" sections of the Cowles bil.
Mr. Forney aays he will report a substi
tute to the bill, removing the duty n
manufactured tobacco and snuff, but
not on cigars and cheroots.
Representative Sayt-rs of Tcxhs said he
intended to prepare a minority report.
He said: "I am opposed to reducing the
surplus by taking off the tax on cigars,
cheroots and cigarettes, uatil we have
first reduced the custom duties on the
necessaries of life.
In the shape in which the Cowles bill
will lie reported, it provides that after
July 1, next, all laws now in force, where
by farmers and producers of tobneco are
respected in the sale and disposition of
the same; and all laws relating to inter
nal revenue tuxes on manufactured to
bacco, snuff, cig'irs, cheroots, and cigar
ettes, nud the special taxes required by
law to le paid by manufacturers of and
dealers in leaf tobacco, retail dealers in
manufactured tobacco, peddler, of snuff,
tob.icco, and cigar, and manufacturers
of smiff and of cig irs, shall he repealed.
It is provided that also a drawb-ipfe equal

A proviso declares that all laws now in
force shall remain and have full force

mitted, liabilities jncurred or rights
incrung or accrued prior to the date when
the appeal of the taxes shall take effect.
Another section provides for the abolition

is finally made for the abolition of all
offices for the " collection of revenues

Tho Lone Highwayman Arrested.
Kansas Citt, .Mo., Feb. 15. One of
the most sensational arrests eyer made in
this city was consummated here today,
when II. L. Oorton, better known as
Black Bart, the notorious California lone
highwayman, was taken into custody.
It seems that somo time ago, shortly
after the beginning of the year, Gorton
quietly came to this, visited his old
haunts in Missouri, and then went to
Leneva, Kan. Postoffice Inspector J. B.
Johnston, of St. Louis, had received pri
vate information that Gorton was in this
vicinity and followed him to Leneva.
Today Gorton returned from that place
and tonight on Johnston's orders
he was arrested opposite the union depot
and committed to jail, charged with the
robbery of a stage coach at Ingram's
ranch, Medocino county, California.
December 4, when he obtained $330 and
the Wells, Fargo & Co. express treasure
Gorton, who is a perfect blonde in ap
pearance, claims to be a stationary engi
neer and to have been in Leneva on a
visit to his father. He acknowledged
having recently come from California,
but would say nothing more.
The West Virginia Deadlock.
Charleston W. Va., Feb. 1.1. There
was great excitement in the joint assem
bly today. President Carr of the senate
announced that he would, from now on
cast his vote for General Goff for U. S.
senator. Kirk, who cast his vote hereto
fore for some union laborite, also de
clared himself for Goff from now on.
Harr, another laborite. cast his vote for
Senator Kenna, and will remain with him
hereafter. Door still refuses to vote for
Kenna. The following ballot was taken:
Goff, 42; Kenna, 42; W. Tice, 1. The
election now hangs on Door, who is a
democrat, but who is bitter against

THE WOMEN OF MAMLA.
MANY OF THEM ARE VERY HAND
SOME AND INTELLIGENT.
They Are Expert at the Sewlny Machine
and in Making Toy They Dress Prettily,
but Io Not Lace Many Superior Brass
Bands In Manila.
Perhaps one of the most interesting
studies in this part of tho world is tho
native and tho development of his racial
features. Those who are given to the
6tudy of physiognomy aro impressed at
onco with the intellectual superiority of
the female native over the male. She
shows it plainly in her face and manner,
and when she speaks it is even more un
mistakably apparent. As a rule the na
tive women are modest, industrious, anx
ious to acquire a knowledge of lan
guages, and make most excellent house
servants. They are very expert with
the needle and learn iiiu.io with scarcely
an effort; in fact the whole race is natu
rally musical, and there aro probably
more really excellent brass bands in
Manila than in any other city of its 6ize
on tho face of the earth. Nearly every
district has its brass band, and each reg
iment of soldiers has one that would do
credit to any country. That attached to
the artillery regiment received the first
prize at the last Paris exposition, and
several cities in ihe orient have bands
of natives of the Philippines who fur
nish tho best music to be had.
EMPLOYMENT OF WOMEN.
Some years ago sewing machines were
introduced here and the native women
very Boon learned to run them as easily
as any white woman. Now no well
regulated household is completely
equipped without a sewing machine and
a native woman to run it. An excellent
seamstress can be bad for twenty cents a
day, and nearly every European family
has one the year round. Of course, they
lose quite a number of days, as the church
feasts are numerous and ticy are most
devout in their religious duties; they
never work when there is a chance to go
to church, so that, taking it altogether,
they probably are paid for less than two
third.sjjf tbo year, '
They live in their own homes little
nipa huts, with ono or two rooms and
are in tho houses of their employers from
about 8 a. m. to 5:30 or 0 p. m. Large
numbers of the native women work in
the tobacco factories and other manu
facturing establishments about the city,
whilo many pf them occupy themselves
at houc, maknig toys, fancy articles and
embroidery for tho shops. Some of their
toys are very curious and give evidence
of wonderful dexterity and delicacy of
touch, and aro quite as valuable as curloa
as those of the Chinee or Japanese. Full
sets pf dolia furniture, ships, houses, na
tivo canoes, carriages, etc., aro repro
duced in miniature with great expert
ness and are sold at very low prices,
gTPEETa FULL. OF BEAUTIES,
Tho natives are a branch of the Malay
race, and none are much darker than a
very dark brown.. They have 6omoof
the characteristics of tho American In
dian, among which are the high cheek
bones, which, however, aro not as a rule
prominent in tho female face. A native

black eyes full of animation, and. a
mouth that would be beautiful bu for a.
suggestion of sensuality. Yet she is

intimate friends a smilo fascinating in
the extreme. And toe are many such

What would be called Eurasians in
other parts of the east aro called Mestizos
cr Mestizos; that is, the offspring of
white fathers and native mothers. A
fair type of tho Spanish Mestiza dress,
which is peculiar to this class, consists
of a long skirt of heavy silk and a waist
and neckkcrchicf made of tho fibers of
tho pineapple plant and embroidered
with white silk linen or cotton. This
costume is calculated to greatly enhance
the attractiveness of tho face and. neck,
and therefore the Mestizas as a class have
a reputation, for beauty which they prob
ably would not have if they wore Euro
pean attire. Some of the skirts aro beau
tifully painted and embroidered and cost
fabulous sums, for there are many very
wealthy people among the Mestizo class,
