A number of -passengers who were
not killed outright, hut who were
pinned in the wreckage and could not
lie extricated, perished in the (lames.
There were about it'Ri passengers,
fully on* fourth of whom were either
kDied or Injured.
I he accident occurred at the worst
|Mis«thle point. Two minutes running
time each way would here avoided the
wreck, ax each engineer could have
seen the approach of the other train.
'I lie Mains collided on a curve or bend
round a mountain, and there wax no
opjxirtunlty to even slacken the speed
Ihr surviving trainmen say the trains
were not running fast, but the facts

going about twenty miles an hour and
the freight ten or twelve.

Indignation meetings, heavy witli

little hope of advancing up the river

The first signs of winter arc appar

are now being paid for food at Daw

Brethren Bon't Dwell Together In Peace
nnd I'nltjr.
ClirrAOo, Sept. 10. — Rebellion has
broken out In the Methodist Kplacopal
church. The laymen demand equal
representation with the ministers In
the great quadrennial legislature of
the church. Throe times have the
ministers voted on the question and
defeated it and the laymen have lost
patience. The church will bo brought
face to face next week with a revolt
that will probably overshadow the
question of women delegalcs In the
general conference.
Representatives of I'ennsylvanla
and New Jersey conferences issued un
address for the change. 1 .ceding lay
men of Indiana called a state conven
tion to meet at Indlunapolls next
Wednesday to consider the question.
A lay convention, representing the
Cincinnati conference, sent greetings
last week to the Indiana convention
and urged the calling of a na
tional convention. The laymen of
Central Illinois conference have
called a convention to meet at Can
ton, September 1", and that meeting
will probably take action on this ques
tion. Another hig convention will he
held in Baltimore next month, and, If
not forestalled by the Indianapolis
convention, It Is expected to Issue a
call for a national convention of Meth
odist laymen to make plans to bring
the ministers Into line.
Under the rules of the church each
conference is entitled to at least ono
lay delegate,but In no case can It have
more than two. In the general con
ference at Cleveland last year 1ft,OHO
ministers bad .117 representatives,
wliil* I),,, 'i 700 O0U luvuiftli of tbn
church bail but 1 !»*.». In Indiana 134
preachers had seven representatives,
while ‘JO.DOO laymen bud but two.
I'nde.r this system many small con
ferences have disproportionately large
representation, while the large con
ference that contributes heavily to the
support of tlic church can have only
one lay delegate more than the small
conference over In China or India,
that lias to lie supported by money
sept from America. There is little
doubt that a nulioriul convention of
laymen will lie held and It promises to
bring out many of tlie most prominent
members of the church.

Ka.v FiiAXCIHO, Sept. 10.—News just

Hesides tiiese, a great number of
firms have gone under for less
amounts. The total Is nearly $*,000,

One of these, J. A. Ralston of San
Francisco, say* that there is lota of
gold in the Klondike, but it is gener
ally still in the ground. It Is believed
that the claim* now located could turn
out fifty tons this winter if the scar
city of food should not prevent full
operation. Ho declares that 9,000 men
are at work about Dawson City and
the supply of food for these men is to
tally Insufficient In fact, it 1* feared
that the stores will lie eshausted be
fore the winter shall bn half over.
Ralston says that one of the best
claims on the Eldorado is the property
of James Hall of Missouri. It will
turn out at least $l,0Mo,000. Claim Na
111, on the Eldorado, is also very rich.
On the way down the river from

Itr.d to get out or starve. There are
4,000 men in Dawson and not more
than a third of them have work. If
you have not a stock of gruhyou can't
get work at uuy price. I hud provis

Cvoxkt, Ohio, Sept. 0.—A terrible
explosion of nltro-glycerino occurred
here yesterday afternoon at ;i o'clock,
which resulted in the death of six
persons whose names are known, ami
others at present unknown.

been shot by Samuel Harlier, the
shooter for the Ohio uud Indiana Tor
pedo company.
The well was a “Classer," and when
the 120 quarts of glycerine let down
into the well exploded, the gas ignited
and with a terrible roar the flames
shot high above the derrick. A* soon
as the driller* saw the flames, soveral
climbed into the derrick to shutoff the
gas, hut they had hardly gotten there
when there wu a terriflo explosion.
The burning gas had started the
remaining glycerine in the empty cans
standing in a wagon near the derrick.
In another wagon near by were sonic
cans containing another 120 quart* of
the stuff, and this was sturted by the
force of the first explosion. The sec

The National Supply company's

Ontlno!: Worse Than Kvor, With No Sign
of Improvement.
Nrw York, Sept. 0.—General Fltr
liugh Lee, consul general at Havana,
accompanied by bis son, arriv' d from
Havana to-day. He said that he had
been suffering from biliousness for
some time, but felt very much better
after the trip. Asked an to whether
he would return to Cuba or not, he
shook his head and said: "I cannot
answer that, and I would rather not
talk on Cuban affair* until 1 make my
report in Washington."
Of the case of Kvangetlna Cisneros,
the general said: "The young woman
Is now eon lined in Casa Kechohtdaa.
Hhe has never been tried and I do not
think it was ever intended that she
should be banished. The stories of
hsrill treatment ara very much exag
gerated and were It not for the hub
bub that has been raised about her,
the girl would probably have been
released long sga In fact, I was given
to understand that her name was on
the pardon list. Hhe has comfortable
quarters and Is treated an well as pos
sible under the conditions. There Is
a good deal of suffering In Cubs, but
the Americans numbering about 1,400,
are being cared for from the fund of
•50,000 which was appropriated for
that purpose. They receive relief
dally and up to the present time about
•15,000 has bean expended. "
"Is there any sign of business im
proving or a change for the better in
Cuba?” was asked.
"No. 1 am sorry to say there is
not,” replied the general, "and there
will not be any Improvement until the
war is ended”
"When will that be, general?"
To this last iiuestlon General Lee
replied In Mpuuish, u free translation
of whleli Ik, "That la too much for me;
I cannot say."
General and hla aon, Fitzhitgh,
Jr., went to West I’olnl to-day to ace
hla other aon, George M., who la at the
military academy there, and to
morrow they will leave for Washing
ton. Among the other passenger*
waa Gcorgo W. Flshbuek of thla city,
who said that hla trip to Havana wu»
partly on private business. He de
clared that there waa a great deal of
suffering all over Cuba and that the
condition of the people was even worse
than when he was there last as secre
tary to Commissioner Calhoun, when
tbe latter was investigating the Uuiz
ease. He saw Miss Cisneros at the
( asa Kechohidas, anil he said the re
ports regarding her treatment were
grossly exaggerated uud that the
young woman was fairly well treated
and did not compiu> when he wus
■peaking to her.

'em mean one thing or nothin', jest
accordin’ as you see fit. Now here's

"Now, I’d like to be told how folks
would come out ef they was to 1st
sca't at both sides like that? What
I like is the old-fashioned proverbs,
there ain’t any two ways o' talcin'
them an' gottlp' misled.
" 'Make hay while the sun shines.'
Now, ain't tiiat clear? ‘Haste mukes
waste.’ What’s truer’n that, I'd
like to know? There ain’t one of
them old suyln's but what's true as

suggestion of a laugh in his trem

The wife of a missionary to Africa
gives some amusing details ol the
mercantile value of certain articles
among the natives, needles and cloth
ranking highest. They arc abso
lutely current coins. Three noodles
will purchase one chicken, one needle

are also much in request, old can*
taking the place of drinking cups.
