Vatal Collision oa the Baltlsaore at Ohio

'Wrecked Killed oa tke Track.
Petroleum, W. Va., Aug. 24 A terri
ble collision occurred about eleven o'clock
yesterday morning on the Baltimore &
Ohio railroad between here and Silver
Run tunnel, about twenty-three miles
east of Parkers burg, in which three men
were instantly killed and many wounded.
The accommodation train coming west,
due at Parkersburg at twelve o'clock,
crashed into a special train occupied by
railroad magnates on a tour of inspection.
The wreck is said to have been caused by
conflicting telegrams. The one received
by the accommodation train was to pass
the special at Petroleum, while tbe
special train, engineered by Captain
C. Rowland, is said to have had tele
graphic orders to pass tbe accommodation
at Silver Ruu. The result of these mis
constructions was to hurl into eternity
four men at least and wound fifteen or
The trains came together with a crash
at the curve east of Petroleum and be
tween that point and Silver Run. Both
trains were running at a rapid speed, and
when they collided with a crash the spe
cial train and thecngine, tender and bag
gage car of the accommodation went over
the cliff in one inconceivable mass.
James Layman, engineer of the accom
modation, one of tbe oldest engineers in
the employ of the Baltimore & Ohio road,
was crushed to death.
Alexander Bailey, fireman for Layman
on the accommodation, was also crushed
in the wreck of the engines.
C. Rowland, also one of tbe old engin
eers of Parkersburg. was caught under
tbe wreck and had one leg broken and re
ceived internal injuries from which be
can not recover.
John Fletcher, fireman on the special,
was also killed. Fletcher stuck to his en
gine, and with his helpmate preferred
death to desertion of his post and went
over the bank in the wreck. He was
crushed to death. Tbe special car, occu
pied by officials on an inspecting tour, was
smashed into smithereens.
Road master Hunter was badly injured,
together with several others. George
Douglass, in the same car, was also badly
injured. In the accommodation train,
there were many passengers, all of whom
received a terrible shaking up, and fifteen
or twenty of whom were more or less in
jured. R. J. Malley, trainmaster, of Parkers
burg. and a member of the City Council,
was badly injured.
When the train bearing the bodies ar
rived in Parkersburg it was surrounded
by thousands of people, many of whom
were friends of the dead, while others had
friends whom they believed to have been
on tbe wrecked trains. As it was impos
sible to hear from their friends, and as
rumors of the accident bad grown into
colossal dimensions, the anxiety increased
until tbe crowd numbered thousands at

as far as can be obtained. A large num

Iaaposiae. Ceremonies Attending the Lay
ing of a Corner Stone at IndiaaapoUs
lln President's Remarks.
Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 23. The cor
ner stone of the Indiana Soldiers' and
and Sailors' Monument was laid yesterday
afternoon with proper ceremony and in
tbe presence of tbe President of tbe
United States, many men of prominence
of the United States and thousands ef
veteran soldiers and sailors from all parts
of the State. Tbe city was aflame with
color in honor of the occasion, while on
the scaffold of the monument in Circle
Park, in every direction from the top,
ropes stretched away to neighboring
buildings or trees strung with pennants
of innumerable shapes, from gnrrison
flags thirty feet long to tiny emblems of
freedom which were barely large enough
to crowd three colors into. At tbe cor
ners of the scaffold were 2,000 candle
power electric lights.
The exercises of the day began at two
o'clock when the parade formed and be
gan its march through the principal
streets. It was made up of the various
posts of the G. A. R. from throughout tbe
State, tbe State militia and local civic or
ganizations. Fully 8,000 men were in line.
It was nearly three o'clock when the
head of the procession reached tbe monu
ment. After the ceremonies attending
the laying of the corner stone Governor
Hovey and others spoke briefly, when
President Harrison was introduced and
spoke as follows:
Mr. President and Fellow Citizens: I did not
expect to mak'5 an address on this occasion. It
would have been pleasant if I could have found
leisure to make such preparations to have ac
cepted the invitation of the committee having
these exercises in charge to deliver an oration.
I would have felt it an honor to associate my
name with an occasion so treat as this.
Cheers. Public duties, however, prevented
the acceptance or the mritatioa and I could
only promise to be present with you to-day. It
seemed to me most appropriate that I should
take part with my fellow citizens of Indiana in
this great ceremony.
There have been few occasions in the history
of our State so full of interest, so macnincent,
so insninng as that which we now witness.
Cheers The suggestion that a monument
should be buildcd to commemorate the valor
and heroism of these soldiers of Indiana, who
gave their lives for the fla?. attracted my inter
est trom the bepnnms. Cheers. Five years
azo last January, when the people assembled in
the opera house yonder to unvail the statue
which had been worthily set up to our great
war Governor, cheers I ventured to express
the hope that near by it as a twin expression
or one great sentiment there might be builded
a noble shaft, not to any man, not to bear on
any of its majestic fasces the name of aman.but
a monument about which the sons of veterans,
the mothers of our dead, the widows that are
yet with us. miffht gather and pointing to the
stately shaft say: There is his monument."
The hope expressed that ,y is realized now.
ICnes of "Thank God," ahu cheers. I con
gratulate the people of Indiana that our Legis
lature has generously met th expectations ol
our patriotic people. Cheers. I congratu
late the commission having this great work in
charge that they have secured a design which
will not suffer under the cnticism of the best
artist- of the world. Cheer. I congratulate
you that a monument so cosily as to show that
we value that which it commemorates. o ar
tistic as to express the sentiment which evoked
it. is to stand in the capital of Indiana.
Cheers.l Doe6 any one say there is wasteful
ness here? Cries of No, No!" My country
men, KOO.n-V) has never passed and will never
pass from the treasury o Indiana that will give
a better return than the expenditure for the
erection of thi monument. Cheers
As I have witnessed these ceremonies and
listened to these patriotic hymns I have read
in the faces of the men who stood about me
that lifting up of the soul, that kindling of pat
riotic fire that has made me realize that on
such occasions the Nation is laying deep and
strong its future security. Cheers. This Is
a monument by Indiana to Indiana soldiers.
But I beg you to remember that they were only
soldiers of Indiana until the enlistment oatn
was taken, that from that hoar until they came
back to the generous State that had sent them
forth they were soldiers of the Union. Great
applause. So that it seemed to me not in
appropriate that I should bring to you to-day
the sympathy and cheer of the loyal people of
all the Sutes. Applause and Creat cheering.
No American citizen need avoid it or pass it
with unsympathetic eyes, for, my ountrymen,
it does not co-t memoratc a war of subjugation.
There is not in the United States to-day a
man who, if he realizes what has occurred
since the time of the war and has opened
his soul to the sight of that which is to
come, who will not feel that it is good for
all our people ihat victory crowned the
cause which this monument commemorates.
Cries of "Amen" and applanse. I do ser.ous
ly believe that if we can measure among tbe
States the benefit r -suiting from the preserva
tion of the Unirn the rebellious States have the
larger share. Apidause It opened the way
for a commercial life that if they will only em
brace it and face the llrht means to them a de
velopment that shall rival the best attainments
of the greatest of our States. Applause.
And now let me thank you for your pleasant
greeting Applause I have felt bfted up by
this occasion. It seems to me that our spirits
hare been borne up to meet those of the dead
and glorified, and that trom this place we shall
go to our homes more resolutely set in our pur
pose as citizens to conserve the peace and wel
fare of onr neighborhoods, to hold np the
dignity and honor of our free institutions and to
see that no harm shall come to our country,
whether from internal dissensions or from the
aggressions of a foreign foe. Great and pro
General Rase, Attorney-General Mil
ler and others spoke briefly and the exer
cises closed amid cheers and tbe booming
The monument will be built of light gray
otitic limestone. It will be 268 feet hira.
The monument will be inscribed: Toln-
diana silent victors, by a grateful State."

Aa Important Pension Decision Series
Defect In tbe Contract Labor Law The
State Department Puxxled A China
man's Wife An Old Consul Dead.
Washisotos, Aug. 2L Assistant Secre
tary Bussey has rendered a decision on the
pension claim of Daniel B Kaufman, for
merly of Company A, Fortieth regiment,
Pennsylvania volunteers, which was
brought before bim on a motion for re
consideration. In his decision be rescinds
rule No. 135, made by Commissioner
Black. September 4. lbSo, and overruled
tbe opinion of ex-Assistant Secretary
Hawkins in tbe sn me case, that a ''dishon
orable discharge" from tbe service
operates as a '"bar to pension." He also
holds tbat rule No. 135 was an erroneous
interpretation of tbe statutes granting
pensions to the soldiers of tbe late war for
disabilities incurred in tbe line of duty,
and declares that the character of a sol
dier's discbarge cin not affect bis claim
for pension onaccountof such disabilities.
He holds that a "dishonorable discbarge"
is a penalty for a specific offense against
tbe service, for which the soldier may be
punished, but tbat the penalty can not in
clude or relate to a claim for pension
based upon disability. The two things are
held to be wholly distinct from each
other, and are not governed by tbe same
The opinion discusses the history of tbe
pension system and the practice of the
department from the organization of
the system in support of the pres
ent iuling. The decision rendered by
ex-Secretary Delaney in tbe case of
Croy, June, 16S5, is quoted to the effect
that "there is no statute which in
terms imposes upon a dishonorably dis
charged soldier of the late rebellion a dis
ability to receive a pension, provided he
be disabled by disease contracted or
wounds received while in tbe line of duty
as a soldier. The act of July 4. 1S62, grants
' a pension to any officer of the army who,
1 sinew July 4. 1801. had been disabled while
' in the service and in tbe line of duty.
Neither act or any subsequent act amend
atory thereof or supplementary thereto
contains any provision whatever by
which a pension is denied to a disabled
soldier of the war of 1961 because be was
dishonorably discharged. The allowance
and pavment of pension to such a soldier
is conditioned alone upon proof of disa
bility incurred in the service and line of
j The Assistant Secretary holds tbat for
the Department to impose upon a soldier
the forfeiture of the right to even claitt
pension because of a dishonorable dis
charge which may have b-en infl.cted by
a court martial for an offense of whici
tbe court bad jurisdiction would be equiv
alent to punishing the soldier twice fo;
the same offense. The opinion re-establishes
the ruling of the department which
prevailed through all administrations
antedating the issuance of rule No. Ili5
by Commissioner Black.
A VITAL DEFECT.
Wasrisgtox, Aug. 21 The Treasury
Department has discovered a serious de
fect in the law to prevent the importation
nf contract labor. It was made while the
case of the twenty-five glas blowers im
ported by Chambers & McKee, of Jean
nette. Pa., was under consideration. The
original law provided a punishment for
those who imported laborers under con
tract, but made no disposition of the la
borers. The Fiftieth Congress in the last
days of tbe first session amended the law
by inserting a provision for tbe return of
the laborers at tbe expense of tbe steam
ship company which brought them over.
However, it did not give jurisdiction in
such cases to any court, and officials of the
Treasury Department say that if arrests
should be made under it, a writ of habeas
corpus would lie in each case. This
renders that portion of the law en
tirely inoperative, and laborer im
ported under contract can remain in
this country without hindrance. The
cases immediately affected are those of
tbe Pennsylvania glass blowers and the
Texas granite workers, which have been
before the department recently.
