Cambridge (Neb.) special to the
Omaha Bee: One of the foulest mur
ders that has ever disgraced southwest
rn Nebraska occurred last night, be
tween 12 and 1 o'clock. Joseph H.
Plnmtner, the victim, a highly respected
farmer and stock raiser, who lives with
his widowed mother about eight miles
southeast of this place, while returning
from an alliance meeting in the neigh
borhood, was waylaid while going
through a canyon "by some person who
was secreted by the wayside, and shot
with a shotgun at short range, the full
charge taking effect in his head and
body. L N. Hewitt and Herman
Albright, who came with him part of
tee way, heard tbe snot, but thought it
was Plummer shooting at coyotes.
Nothing was known of the murder until
this morning, when his mother saw hia
none, and, thinking it strange at not
teeing her son around, gave the alarm,
when a search was instituted and his
body found by the roadside.
The coroner held an inquest this after
noon, but no clue to the murderer was
found. It has created great excitement,
and hundreds of people have visited the
place to-day. The murdered man has a
sister in Neaiaha county, who is the wife
of the county treasurer.
Later. A man named Jones and the
victim's brother have been arrested.
A Nebraska Bank Cashier Suicides.
Sidney (Neb.) special: S. C. Morgan,
cashier of the State bank of this city,
committed suicide this morning by
shooting himself. He used a 45-calibre
Colt's revolver, and the top of his head
was literally blown off. He awoke early
in the morning, and calling a boy in his
employ to his room sent him down to
the bank to fetch the revolver, saying
be wished to shoot rats. Morgan then
instructed the boy to meet Mrs. Mor
gan, whom he expected to return from
Omaha, at the depot when the train
came. Hia wife did not arrive, and the
boy on his return went to Morgan's
room to inform him and found him lying
in bed, having been dead several hours.
The cause for the suicide is unknown.
Morgan was a very popular young man
of an exceedingly jovial temperament.
He has been a valuable citizen, always
ready to aid in matters of public inter
eat. He is not known to have been in
volved financially. It is believed that
the affairs of the State bank are in good
condition. Morgan is well known in
Omaha. His partner in the State bank
was Frank Johnson of the Omaha Bank
of Commerce, and his wife is the
daughter of H. W. Yates, president of
the Nebraska National bank. Mr. John
son is expected to arrive in the morning
to arrange for the settling of the bank's
affairs. The disposition of the remains
will also be decided upon to-morrow.
The verdict just reached by the coro
ner's jury sets forth that S. C. Morgan
came to hia death by a pistol shot in
and fired upon the head, the said shot
having been fired by hia own hand
while temporarily insane.

A TRIPLE COLLISION OF TRAINS.
A Rallread Wrtrk in Whith Frighlfut lm
of l ife U Urpvi lril.
Pittsburg dispatch: A triple collision
of freight trains occurred near Latrobe,
Pa., forty miles east of this city, on the
Pennsylvania road, about 2:30 this
morning. Thirty cars wese wrecked
and seven persons killed, four of them
unknown tramps. Engineer Caldwell
and his firemen are supposed to have
been killed instantly. Their bodies are
still in the creek where the locomotive
fell. Brakeman Miller was fatally
crushed. The cause of the accident is
not known. Tbe loss to the railroad
company will be heavy.
A dispatch jnst received from Greens
burg, ten miles from Latrobe, states
that a party of about thirty-five work
men from Johnstown were stealing a
ride on a freight train when the accident
occurred. The wreck caught fire from
a lime bed and the men were cremated.
The story is not credited here and the
Pennsylvania railroad officials know
nothing of it. James Flannagan and a
companion, who was futully injured,
were brought from the wreck to this
city this afternoon. Flannagan, who is
a returning Johnstown laborer, says
twelve persons were on the car with him
at the time of the collision, but he could
say nothing whatever as to their escape.
Greensburg(Pa.)dispatcli: Itis prob
able that thirty-five or forty lives were
lost in the railroad wreck at Latrobe
this mcrning. Only four or five bodies
have been taken from the pile of cars
yet. Thirty-one cars went over the
bridge and are piled one upon the other
in the water. The conductor of the
freight states that in all probability
thirty or forty men are still under the
wreck. He put off at Derry station
about forty-five men who were coming
from Johnstown. He Btates that when
he moved out a great many of them got
on again, and it is more than likely the
killed will reach the number stated. A
car load of lime ia the center of the
train was the last to go down and it was
scattered over the pile of shattered cars.
Then the debris took fire, and notwith
standing the efforts of the people to put
out the flames, it is still burning. Arms
and legs of victims can be seen protrud
ing from the wreck.
Latrobe disatch: Tbe debris of the
wreck which occurred on the Pennsyl
vania railroad here this morning is being
rapidly cleared away. At 8 o'clock to
night ten dead bodies had been recov
ered. Those of Engineer Caldwell and
George Frelich, fireman, have not yet
been found, but it is expected they will
be reached before long. About a dozen
men were more or less injured, several
of whom, itis expected, will not recover.
It is almost certain that from twenty-five
,to thirty people were killed in the wreck.
The water in the creek at the point
where the accident occurred is twelve
feet deep and it is expected that ten or
twelve bodies are in the bottom of the
creek, held there by the wreckage.
John H. Miller, flagman on the freight,
states that the proper signals were given
when the position of the shifter was dis
covered, and Engineer Caldwell an
swered, but the speed was too high.
AVhen the ill-fated tram left Boliver
about forty workmen boarded her, but
the conductor put them off at Derry.
Four injured men taken from one car
stated that eleven others were in another
box car. It is stated by one of the res
cued that there were fifteen or twenty
men. One or two of the bodies taken
from the wreck were horribly burned
by the lime which covered the wreck.
At 9 o'clock to-night the work of clear
ing the debris was stopped until to

the' following way: ,
A Chicago scalper would buy a round

to a Denver passenger for $j0. with an
order on a Denver scalar for J2-.. or as
much less as he could get the customer
to accept. The Denver scalper then
sold the return passage t&'T.u.
much more a. he could get. 1 he ticket
is of the descriptive character; in fact
everything but a photograph of the pur
chaser. The Alton claims that lady
rode on one of these ticket descrioins
a man with blonde side whiskers, it is
alleged that this took place on a hock
Island train, the only comment of the
conductor being a query as to liat she
had done with her burnt-ides.
The Alton further claims that there
are now 600 of these unused (tortious of
tickets in the Denver market, 4'j0
of tliera being of the hock Island.
To this charge the Rock Island
makes answer in a circular, declaring
there are but fifty-four outstanding
round trip Denver tickets of this issue,
and H i reasonable to .tippo.e that at
least nine or ten of these arc in the hands
of legitimate purchasers. The Alton
people declare tied the circular i
pure buncombe. The Alton i by no
means satisfied ith the reduction
in passenger rates, which will extend to
all intermediate points. It i now at
tacking the Rock Island in a tender
spot, if private information from points
east of the Missouri are to be believed.
The word conies that the Rock Island,
refusing to break cargoes at the Mi
soiiri river, the Alton is offering stock
meii to take cattle to Chicago from any
point on the Rock Island system west of
the river to Chicago at regular rates.
This it ran do by paying local rate, to
the Rock Island to Kansas City and
thence to Chicago over its own line.
This will not cut the through rate, but
the transfer will net the Alton mnch less
than it would the Rock Island.

ever, within twenty-foiir hours. The
