reckless msobedienco of plain orders ou

of tlio trnins. Apparently these officers
readily took tho risk of continuing be

Tho collision in Illinois a fow hours

to an appalling list of bluudors and in

havo caused great loss of lifo since tho
beginning of last summer, and this latest
collision, followed by a firo that left only
tho charred bodies of many victims who

It is truo that in tho last fow months
many railroad lines have been overtaxed
by n sudden and exceptional growth of
pnssonger traffic which has found thorn

able nloo thut on some roads employees
who wero trustworthy under old condi

oven reckless under tho strain of over
work. But, while tho people generally
may bo interested in discussion of the
underlvimr causes of audi n serfon of
dreadful events, they aro moro deeply
interested in suggestions as to tho action
which can bo taken to prevent such
carelessness and disregard for tho safoty
of passengers, as havo been shown this

may suffer heavy enough? Tho loss of

WHY HE KILLED HIMSELF.
A Seaman With Good Record Could Not
Kndure a Ilenrlruaud.
John Nell, a seaman in tho United
States navy, serving on board tho re
ceiving ship Independence, Maro Island
navy yard, was reprimanded the other
morning for having overstald his leave
of absence, and for punishmont was or
dered restricted to tho ship for a period
of 60 days. As soon as Neil received his
decreo of punishmont he went below
into tho ship bagroom, whero ho was
found later with a bullet wound in his
right temple. Ho was a man of unusual
distinction, having received medal hon
ors from congress for bruvcry ami mer
Ho enlisted in tho navy In 1601, served
with Farragutat Mobile Bay nnd lashed
tho admiral in tho rigging of tho Hart
ford, whero ho stood by his sido through
out tho fight. Siuco tho war Neil has
served continuously in tho navy and
was ono of tlio survivors of the ill fated
Trenton, which went down in Apia har
bor. Ho received general mention for
bravery in rescuing shipmates from tho
Vundalia, which was also wrecked in
the samo gale. Ho was a nntivo of Ire
land, aged 02, and a mcmlier of tho
Grand Army of tho Republic and tho
Regular Army and Navy union. Tho re

Need of rtn International Agreement For

A Washington dispatch anont tho res

Secretary Carlisle, in a letter to the
committcoon tho subicct. k.ivh Oi.it flm
necessity for such an agreement nmong
tho governments concerned was empha
sized by tho international marino con
ference held in Washington in 1889. llo
believes tho resolution a proper ono nnd
recommends its passage. Accompany
ing his letter aro oxtracts from tho re
port of tho commissioner of navigation
on tho subject.
Commissioner O'Brien In his report
especially invites attention to tho sub
ject or ueroucts ana other obstructions
to navigation. Ho refers to it as a mat
tor of international concernment and
ono of great importance. President Mink
of the American Steamship association!
In a letter to Mr. O'Brien, says that ho
is informed that tho commissioner is
making heroic efforts to get rid of dore
llcts off tho Atlantic coast. Ho is re
joiced at this, as tho members of tho as
sociation aro complaining bitterly at
theso unlighted and nnmarked obstruc
tions. They havo beon so frequent of
lato that no captain feels easy in going
up or uown tno coast.
Mr. Mallorv savs that nrivlrma par
goes and still moro precious lives are
greatly threatened overy tlmo a vessel
passes between tho United States and
Europe nnd along tho North Amorican
coast, and they aro not Infrequently de
stroyed. Charts have dono much for tho
safety of commerce by showing tho posi
tions of 032 vessels abandoned on the high
seas and by marking tho drift tracks of
100 of them. But they havo utterly
failed, and this 1b an alarming fact, to
show tho tracks of 025 derelicts which
have been reported. It is another alarm
ing fact that they havo tracks and do
drift. Thoy are hero today, yonder to
morrow. They are a roving fleet that
always hover upon tho pathway of com
merce. They are moro dangerous than
a fleet of pirates, because thoy aro vast
ly more numerous, because they strlko
even moro by night than by day and be
cause they aro moro merciless when they
do strike. To destroy them is tho only
effectivo way of dealing with them.
THE MIDWAY IN CALIFORNIA.

It is the Midway plaisanco which

and tho street in Cairo and other orien
tal scenes will be reproduced in Golden
Gate park. A German village, a Spanish
village, practical representations of
quartz mines and a lako filled with
ocean fish aro also among tho features
of the scheme. The Chlneso display will
bo especially flue. It will bo contained
in a building of appropriate design,
within which will bo a garden of raro
Chinese plants. In the center of tho
garden tho grave of Confucius will bo
reproduced. There will boa theater for
Chineso plays by nativo actors, and
booths in which various handicraftsmen
will be at work.
Tho crowning glory of this depart
