Sax Fiuscisco.Cal., Jan. 16. There is a prospect that the United States officials, either at Honolulu or in America,, may have to answer to the charge of breaking faith with Presi dent Dole. It is said that Minister Willis grew impatient at Dole's delay in formulating his reply to Willis' de mand of abdication and urged greater haste, whereupon Tresldont Dole called upon Willis and frankly ad mitted he did not propose to submit his reply until the arrival of a vessel on which It would bo dispatched simultaneously with the departure of the Corvin hereuponVillis agreed the Corwin should carry the dis patches of tho provisional govern ment Dole then hurried forward his reply and sent it to Willis, who dis- f latched the JCorwin early nex morn ng. It transpires that no dispatches were delivered by the Corwin to the Hawaiian representatives in America. It Is also ald the queen's , death from heart disease is liable to occur at any moment. Smothering spells have come upon her with alarming fre quency of late.

The Ta cine Mall steamship City of Pekin, brought details from Ningpo of one of the most terrible fires on record, which occurred in the big -temple in that city December 8, and caused the death of nearly 800 women and children. The annual theatrical performance in honor of the gods was being given In the temple. A boy threw a lighted cigarette Into a heap of straw, which blazed up, aud the burning staircase prevented the people from getting out There was a general rush to es cape. Some were trampled to death, others jumped out of the wlddows and were either killed or so badly injured that they were unable to escape the flames, and so perluhed, while others passively awaited, their fate, which was not long in overtaking them, and they were roasted alive or suffocated by the smoke.

FRIGHTFUL REAR-END COLLI SION IN A FOQ, PASSENGERS WARNED TOO LATE. Two Trains of the Delaware, Lackawan na aod Western Crash Into Una An other Near Jersey City Two Cars Telescoped and Completely Wrecked by a Death Deal ing Engine. New York, Jan. 16. . ...en pas sengers werts killed and twenty-five injured in a collision duriug a dense fog between two trains of the Dela ware, Lackawanna and Western rail road at the west end of the Ilacken sack bridge, about 8 o'clock this morn ing. Two cars were completely de stroyed. The Dover express passed through Bosevllle without stopping and was followed four minutes later by the regular commutation train. So dense was the fog over the river that on ap proaching the bridge, the express slowed up, the engineer being unable to see the signals. The commutation train did not halt at tbe bridge, but went along at its usual rate of speed. The engineer saw the express when less than 200 feet from it, and though he reversed his engine, he could not prevent a collision. The locomotive crashed into the rear car throwing It front the track quite a distance. This car and the one ahead of it were completely wrecked. Both cars were full of passengers who were crushed to death or terribly mangled. The engineer of the com mutton train is missing and is said to be among the killed. The brakeman of the rear car of the Dover express discovered that a wreck was inevitable and shouted at the top of his voice: "Jump for your lives, another train is coining behind and will be on us in a minute." j This warning was sufficient. to put the entire rear car of the express in a commotion. Passengers rushed pell mell for the nearest means of exit. Some jumped through the windows in their haste, while the majority rushed to the doors. In the excitement some fell on the floor while the others tuna bled over them. Ik-fore all the frightened passengers could make their escape, the Orange locomotive crashed into the rear car wrecking it and driving It into the car ahead, also telescoping that, dealing death on all sides. Trains always slow up when ap proaching the llackensack bridge. It is said that the South Orange train was running so close behind tho Dover express that there was notlmo to send back a flagman.

Mlitourl Uoabl to Secure Any Better Rate Than Before, Jeffeksojt Citt, Jan. 16. The peni tentiary inspectors and the warden have renewed a lease for convict labor with the J. Strauss Saddlery, Ilarness and Collar company for five years at the old rate of fifty cents per day for each able bodied convict, the firm binding itself to work twenty-five per cent more men after January 1, 1895. In its present condition the lease calls for 125 mea This is taken as, an in dication that all the old leases will be renewed at tbe old price. There are now about 500 idle convicts and no demand for their labor. SHEEP FOR PUGILISTS. A Wyoming Club Make a Holt Unlq.a Offer of m I'rlse. EVAH8TOIT, Wya, Jan. 16.

NO. 31 LYNCHED AND SHOT. THREE MEN HANGED TO A BRIDGE AT RUSSELL, KAN, FRED DINNINY'S MURDER AVENGED J. G. Barton, William 0y and His aa Joha Strong t'p by a Band of Determined Hen Their Bodies Left HangingThe Mob Was Ferfeetly Organised la Every DetalL EussKi.r, Kan., Jan. 16. A terrible exhibition of prairie justice was seen here Saturday night when three men, J. O. Burton, William Gay and his son, John Gay, were lynched by a deter mined mob. The men were held guilty of the murder of Fred Dlnnlny last July. Dlnnlny lived with T. W. Bur ton os a farm eleven miles north, and July 9 he disappeared. Burton had his team and even wore some of his clothes, but claimed that Dlnnlny had gone to Oklahoma with young Gay. Gay returned a short time ago, and, on close questioning, confessed that Burton bad poisoned Dlnnlny. The elder Gay attempted to point out the place of burial, but failed. Burton then made a confession that the Gays killed him, and Thursday took the sheriff to a corn- field in a ravine where) the body, decomposed, mutilated, skull crushed, was found. Indigna tion ran high, and it was with diffi culty tbe three men could be got back to the jail, where they had been con fined since their arrest late in De cember, Saturday night two men from the Burton farm came into town and were reinforced by farmers from all parta of the country. The party appeared to have been picked, for there wera only about 130 in all when, at mid night, they surrounded the little jail and demanded the prisoners. .Ibis was refused by the sheriff, but the parley was short The mob easily forced their way into the jail and dragged out the terrified trio from their cells. The mob was cool and apparently well organized and made no attempt at concealment, though there were many onlookers. They took the men out through the streets and guarded them with jealous care leading them along the Union Pacific track. A short distance from town a little prairie stream is crossed by the rail road and wagon road, about 100 roda east of the Eussell depot To the bridge over this the mob went and placed tho trembling wretches near the edge. Bopes were) ready and one was put around the' neck of each of the men and tied to the stringers. There was no time for prayers or pleadings, but at a signal all three were pushed oft tne edge and dropped eight or ten feet with all tho precision of a professional hanging. To make sure of carrying out their purpose the mob fired two shots into each body, although death came quickly by the rope. Then the lynch ers rode away quietly and tbe bodies swung Cold and stiff. When morning came, passengers on the east-bound express train had a plain view of the bodies as they hung from the high bridge. Hundreds of people gathered around, but It waa not until 10:30 that the bodies wera cut down. The coroner at once held an inquest aod without delay the jury returned a verdict that deceased came to their death at the hands of persons unknown. There is little sympathy felt for the vlctima The murder was a eruel and heartless one, and the murdered man had many frleoda Ever since his die appearance) suspicions have growa more pointed, and the threw men lynched were considered gutltv. Their mutual recriminations and rroa con feton convinced the people that all of them were guilty, and during th past week, and while the laqut over blnnlny's remains were being held. a'trntlon has been gives alnot ei etsslvely to the natter. The trivial booty sxioured and tbe evidence of mutiiatloa given by the bod robbed the murderers of ell sympathy.
