Peoria, 111., March 9. The Jacksoa
villc Southeastern passenger train over
the A., T. t a F., which left Ticre" at
11:39 yesterday morning, met with a
terrible accident at Havana, forty-one
miles south of here. The train consist
ed of a baggage car, a coach, a chair
car and two sleepers and was an hoar
and a half-late owing to the storm
which raged all night
At Havana there is a sharp curve a
mile and a half from the depot and the
engine struck the curve at the switch
and left the track. All the cars fol
lowed, piling up in great confusion.
The half dressed passengers clinibcd
out of the windows and through the
roofs of the demolished curs and hast
ened, barefooteit through the sleet and
over the icy roads tothe nearest houses.
The passengers who wero in tho coach
extricatod their injured companions.
Under the engine was Fireman Sad
dler, who was instantly killed. He
iuiue here a few days ago from the Ilnl
tituore it Ohio road and was a stranger.
By the side of the engine was En
gineer llirkcnhead of this city, with one
arm and a leg cut otT.
The other injured are:
Flwanl Huiiituett of IVoria, burned
and badly bmii-cd.
Walter Conovcr, of Monitou, III., left
arm torn out and fatally injured.
Charles Mulvaney, of Streetor, 111.,
back and head crushed, will die.
.Miss Kinnia Uushton, of St Louis, se
Kx press Messenger Hates, of Chicago,
left foot torn olf and badly bruised.
Frank I. Lewis, of l'eoria, scrlously
jnintned in the breast
Conductor M. J. Kennedy, who lives
at Eureka, 111., and C. L. Hughes
hrakeman, of St Ixitiis were also in
jured by being thrown against the car
seats when the wreck occurred.
The wreck immediately took lire and
burned with great rapidity. It was
with the utmost dilliculty that some of
the passengers were rescued and one or
two were severely burned. A wrecking
train was sent out from Jacksonville at
once, but when it reached the scene the
fire had swept the debris out of exist
ence. Tho loss to the company, including
thu death and accident claims will not
fall short of S100.00O.
An unusually small list of passengers
was rtlsiard the train. The people in
the sleepers wero not injured, but had
to make their way on foot for a mile
through the terrible storm to shelter
without shoes or any clothes.
A.C. Woods, of Jacksonville, 111., was
on the train bringing home the remains
of his daughter, who had died the. night
lH'fore at the home of her sister, Mrs.
S. V. Head, of Oak Point With him
were his daughters, Mrs. S. D. Osliornc,
of this place, and Mr. and Mrs. J. V.
Kead and two children. Tin1 casket
containing the daughter's lxly, which
was in the baggage car, was burned to
ashes. All the others of the family es
caped in a miraculous manner.
What the I.lttle Colony Want In thu Wny
of n Treaty.
IlALirAX, N. S., March 8. Tho ad
dress adopted in reply to the governor's
speech at the opcuingof the Newfound
land assembly makes allusion to the
reciprocity treaty with the Tinted States
and the French shore question as fol
lows: "It is highly satisfactory to know
that your ministers have with the ex
press sanction of tho imperial govern
ment concluded to negotiate a treaty
of reciprocity with the United Stttes,
but this satisfaction is seriously
diminished by the intimation
which your excellency has conveyed
that the imperial government has with
held its assent to this convention. Wc
cannot closo our eyes to the fact that
her majesty's government in adopting
a course fraught with such disastrous
consequences to this colony has been
influenced by a regard for the interests
of the neiglilHiring dominion. It in a
subject of congratulation, however, to
be informed that your excellency's min
isters are using every effort to obtain
the assent of her majesty's government
to this convention.
"We regret that your excellency
should have to convcj to us informa
tion that the government of the French
republic has not favorably received the
protmsals for the withdrawal of French
subjects from the treaty shore of this
Lsland. We infer from the absence of
any allusion to any proposal of a re
newal of the modus vivendi of b'M that
a temporary arrangement so obnoxious
to the people of this colony has expired

The governor in reply said that he
regretted that he had to take exceptions
to those portions of tho address which
relate to the proposed convention with
the United States. He hail no doubt
that when the correspondence in the
matter was laid before the assembly
they would find that their conclusions
and deductions had been erroneous.

true, says the St Johns Herald, al
solves the' Britwh government of any
had faith. The premier said in effect
that the delegate to London snbmitted
to Lord Knutsford a draft of the state

wished to make to the United States as
a basis of the treaty. After a discus
sion the Hritish government consented
to permit Mr. ltond to visit Washington
to ascertain" if the treaty could be ar

Mr. Hond consented to terms which

The net earnings, after allowing for all

show a deficit of 8177,2.11, against net

Vice-lresidcnt iVaslcy says: "One
considerable cause of the falling oil in

transportation of corn from points west
of the Missouri river In the month of
January, 1390, vrera 8130,000, while in
the same month this year from tlie

It appears that tho falling off In rev
