FCR REVENGEJR ROBBERY
Keystone Express Derailed by Wreck-j
ers , but Nobody Is Hurt.
Plttsburg , March 28. Train No. 20
on the Pennsylvania railroad , known '
as the Keystone express , eastbound.
was derailed near Wllmcrdlng , Pa. ,
fourteen miles cast ot hero.
The engine , two mall cars and a
combination baggage and smoker left
the tracks , but no on6 was Tiuft.
It Is believed the train was Inten
tionally derailed and that the deed j'
was done by the same parties who
wrecked the Chicago limited train No.
23 at Stewart , Pa. , last Friday. The
same plan was carried out and only
the slow speed of the train ( thirty
miles an hour ) saved it from turning
turtle , diving over a steep bank and
crushing out perhaps a score of lives.
Both the eastbound and westbound
tracks wore tampered with , one rail 11
joint on each track being displaced I
within a few rods of each other.
Railroad detectives started an In
vestigation nnd the nnnouncemont
was made that the derailment was un
doubtedly the work of train wreckers ,
either for revenge or robbery.

BILL HAS GOOD PROSPECTS.
C. E. Burnham Left Norfolk Hospital
Matter In Good Shape.
There Is every prospect that the ap

to bo used in improvements at the
Norfolk insane hospital , and which
was Introduced In the house by Repre
sentative Alderson of Madison county ,
nnd passed with only ono dissenting
vote , will this week bo passed by the

snags at the beginning of the week.
C. B. Burnham , legislative representa

returned from Lincoln last night after
having been in the state capital all
week looking after the measure. Ho
says that the bill has every prospect

FRISCO STILL A RUIN.
Vast Area of Burned District Is Yet a
Heap of Ashes and Debris.
At least 10,000 people perished In
the San Francisco earthquake and V
fire , Instead of the -100 or 500 reported
by newspaper dispatches at the time
of the catastrophe , according to the
admission of practically everybody In
that city. J. P. Losch of West Point ,
who has Just returned from a two
months' trip to California , Including
the devastated city , says that San
Franciscans generally believe that at
least 10,000 and perhaps more than
thnt perished In the earthqunko horror
nnd flames that followed. Dead bodies
by the scores and hundreds were
tossed Into the fire while the city still
burned and were thus cremated with
out any record being made of the
Hundreds nnd hundreds of dead
bodies were hauled through the streets
nnd dumped Into the water before any
thing like an accurate accounting
could bo made. Chinese In untold
numbers , many of whom had never
seen the light of day , perished down
in their underground swallow-nests.
Buildings that burned with inmates
were buried with ashes and dirt and
there will never be any knowing how
many unfortunates He In these un
marked graves. < *
Many of those who 'survived the fire
are today succumbing to the nerve
shock and many others , robbed of
their families and friends , are now be
coming Insane as a result of the mental -
al strain that they have undergone. -
San Francisco today looks as if it
had Just been burned a week ago , ac
cording to Mr. Losch. The down town
district Is still a vast area of ashes
and ruins and 1,200 wagons are being
employed to haul away what remains
still of the debris. A few frame
shacks have been built in the down
town district but business Is practic
ally impossible because the public is
unable to make its way through the
ruins to get to this section.
Inadequate street cars , which are
running with electricity lor the first
time In the town's history , are crowd-
f-d to the guards with people and many
are being killed because of this con
gested condition. Passengers drop off
the cars and are run over without at-
nttrnctlng pnrtlcular comment.
Many of the beautiful mansions that
stood on Neb Hill are still staring at
the streets In their ghastly condition
of ruin , nnd will not be rebuilt.
It Is the opinion of visitors that San
Francisco will not be replaced as it
wns before under twenty-five years , if
