of a baggage car , smoker , sleeping car , mall
car and two ordlntiy passenuor cars. The
train was In clmigo of Conductor Fostei ,
with llerbeit Llttlejohn as cndnccr. The

most dangerous on the toad. Trains run on
tlio edge of an embankment 200 feet above
the Dcerlleld liver. 'I hu bulk Is steep , and
Is covered with huge boulders ami
masses of lock. When the train
arrived at this point the track com
menced to settle under It for a distance
coveilnit Its entlro length. The coaches
! * broke from their trucks and went lolling
over and over down the preclnlcc. The en
gine broke irom tlio tender , teailng up the
tracU for twenty feet. Hulovv rolled the
Decilleld river , on tlio veij edge of which the
-i- cais vvcio thrown. As soon as they struck
- - they caught the from the stoves. The sleep
ing cai was an entlro wreck. It was occu
pied by several passougeis , not one of whom
ntthls hour , Is known to have escaped In-
jniy. One man , whose name Is unknown , is
imptlsoned in the wreck of the sleeper.wheio
liolsbelng burned alive. One little gill was
picked up dead.
As soon as the news reached Giccnfield a
flpcdil tialn was mail' ' np and sent to tlio
seouii of the disnstei , having on boinl several
phjslclaii , section men and a few cltlrens.
On anlval at the scene 6f the wreck , a honl-
hlc sight was witnessed. Daikness had set
tled ovei the spot. 1'ardown on the liver
I hank could ho seen tlio smouldering emheis
of thu holocaust.
It was impossible to tell who was hurt and
who was killed. Thu stout-hearted tiackmon
vveio lovveied cautiously down the tieacliei-
ous height , and the vvoik of icsrue began.
Meriltt Seely , piesldent ot the National
Kxpicss company , ot Hoston , was found in
the wicck and taken Into thu mlicf car. Ho
had a wound lorn inches long and half an
inch wide over his lelt temple. His lelt thlch
was bioken and also his lelt legal thu knee ,
besides wlilch , ho sustained internal injuiies ,
fiom which ho will die ,
D. CrandaU , a postal cleik , was plunged
Into the ilvei , and got ashore with dllllculty.
Ho was wounded about the head and his aim
was I matured.
The Fitchburg coach was the only one that
craned thu conflagration.

hurt and his head cut. Mho car In which ho
vv.is riding was broken in two , and stood on

Nicholas Doigan , of Giccnhchl , had his
left arm and ankle broken , and was seii-
ously Injuied intcinally. A little glil , who

Kngluei'i Llttlejohn of North Adams was
badly scalded , it is believed tntally.
O. \Vianei , chali 111,111 of the Greenfield

Injuries aio not fatal.
Great excitement prevails along 'the road
between heie and NoiHi Adams. Heing In
terviewed by who to-niuht at Shelburno

to state how many were on thn tialn. Only
tlneo men have thus fai been found who
escaped injuiy , and they set tlio numbur of
passengers all thu way Irom twentj-livo to

Tlieiu Is no doubt that half a do/en vvcio
killed outright while tailing , and as many
more vveio Intally Injured. The west bound

A Hcmnrluthly i'uvornhle Outlook Tx-
ccpt in Kaunas and Michigan.
CHICAOO , April 7. The following Is the
Tanners Ituvlewbummaiy of the wheat crop
up to April 5 : Growing winter wheatenters
the second of the spring months undei con
ditions scarcclj' , if ever , better. Tills appears
to be tine liom a close study of the icports ot
all the winter wheat states , with the excep
tion of Kansas and Michigan. Tlio former
state appeals destined to have veryueaily a
lepelltlon of the slioit ciop ol last jcar. Only
tvvo of the counties embodied In the latest le-
poit make tavorablo ictuins , vvliilo the ro-
nmiudor Indicate that ne.ulv all the fields

some of thu fields have been plowed
up , and the only fields which appear
to have escaped liani the blight
ing effects of tlio alteinate thaw Ing and
tiec/lng vvcio those wheio tlio grain was
sown amonnst corn. The Michigan outlook
is not entiiely lavorable. Manvot tlic fields
aio icfoited looking tiiovvn and dead , and in
many instances the crop lias been pionounccd
n failure. While the output promises to bo
considerably short ot the "bumper" crops of
the last tvvo jears , thrro is still nroinlsoof a
liilraveiage jleld lu that state , uepoitstium
the remaining wlutei wheat states am al
most unlfouuly good. The fields In Ken
tucky , Tennessee and Missouri pieseut a
very favorable appeatance. The plant Is
healthy , ami with plenty of molstuie there
remains nothing at piesent to Uneaten the
crop. Steuljon countj' , in In
diana , icports that the injury
Inflicted by the lly in the
fall , and by freezing , causes some of tlio
lichls to piesent an unfavorable appearance ,
with the prospect ol not to exceed a half
average crop. The remaining indications
me , outlook good and above the average
throughout the state. In some southern
counties of Illinois , winter-killing Is re
potted , but In the main the leport is favor
able. It i p Jits Irom the Pacific coast aie gen

that the democrats would hold funeral ser

hero as the "lluaichcs. " Directly after the
appearance of the circular , It was
announced that the party would prevent any
such demonstration. At 4 p. m. , the streets
leading to the point vvheio the democratic
piocesslon was announced to start , was
blocked with armed men. Later , the
music of the democratic band stiuck np and
the procession moved down Main sticct and
tinned Into the street lending to the main
pla/a. When the head of the column had
reached the front of Mm tin's stoie , a paity
of men armed \\lth Winchesters and rev ol-
\cis charged the procession. Instantly

became engaced In a deadly conllict , and for

A Lively Contest.
WASHIXOTOX , Auril 7. In the senate , the
army bill was taken up and Mr. llawley took
the floor and spoke In Its support.
Thuargumcnts for the luciease of the arnij1 ,
Mr. Van Wyck thought , vvcio rather singu
lar. Some senators had said that It was
wanted because of the Indians , and some be
cause of the communists. The senator from
Connecticut ( Havvley ) had siid that hovvant-
cd the army to suppoit the ohII law and the
constitution , Hefeirinc to the IngitlveHnvo
law and Its execution In Xew Kngland , .Mr.
Van WJCK said the United States aimy had
been thrust In the way of the fugitive slave.
Hcclng for life and liberty. Ho asked
whether Now Kngland had changed since
then.Mr. . Havvley replied that It had.
Mr. Van Wjck said the aimv had donn
pohco duty In keeping the fugitive slaves
Mi. IHvvlej'iemaiked that he had never
bellvcd tlio fugitive slave law to bo consti
Air. Van Wjck said the secret ot the whole
matter was to bo found In the Idea of using
them my lualn ns a gieat poltco povvci to
keep slaves In slaveij' . Jay Gould and his
-confederates , and Vamleioilt nnd his confed-
01 ales , had been allowed to steal millions
just ns men , undei the old Interpolation ol
tlio constitution , had been allowed to steal
from tlm black man his blitlnight. "You
have raised , " said Mi. Van Wvek , "another
class of slaveholder , just as unrolontlng and
deteimlned , and steeled against the instincts
ofliiimnnlty , as the old slaveholders vveio ,
and I thl k , a little more so. The Knights
of Labor , " he continued , "had no sympathy
with the commune. "
Mr. Locan said the bill had been Intro
duced her * lour times already , at different
sessions of the senate , and It was thciefoio
beneath any man to say that it was brought
here because of Gould or Vandcibllt , U was
as low as the cries ofdcmngoguism that no
man ought to stoop to it.
Mr. Van Wjck Is that all ? [ Laughter. ]
Mr. Logan That Is nil.
Mi. Van Wjck said this was the old atftu-
incut. Ho lemcmbi'icd that in the old davs
In the liousool icpicscntattvcs it was not the
gentlemen of thu south alone that had stigmatized
" . " Ceitain
matized men as "demauosucs.
gentlemen fiom the uoith had also , in their
day , stigmatised men as "demago uca. " Mr.
Van Wyck , leforring to the decisions of the
supreme couit upholding tlia fugitive slave
law , said that tiie court decided cases accordIng -
Ing to the wishes of the omnipotent powers
of the times , and as coiporatlons vvcio now
the omnipotent powers , the decisions were In
their favor. "Strikes" of labor Mr. Van
Wjck regarded as like the stilke of Anthony
Hums when ho struck lor llbeity. Mr. Van
Wjck remarked that It had been said that
there was domestic danger In this country.
Had not that dancer been met and passed ?
Why Increase tlio icgular array to meet the
danger tliat had dkappearedV
1 Air. Logan Bald It whs not true that G'ouTd
had auvconnectlon , diiect OL Indued , with
the measure. It was foi the benefit of tlio
people , rich and poor , black aud white. Mi.
Van Wjck , Interrupting , said he had not
charged that Jay Gould or any other man
had. anything to dp witli it. He had merely
told what the result would be.
13Mr. Logan asked why , then , was thcnauio
used In connection witli the argument ,
brought liom the recent dlstiubanccs , but to
create apicdjudlcongalnstthe advocates of
tlio bill. He ( Logan ) had always had a
Iiamo , and hoped God had given hiui the
honesty to advocate what ho believed to be
right and oppose what ho thought vvionc. Ho
had never lived by drinking soup that fell
from the lips of demagogues. If Iheio was
anj thine detestable in the Mchtof honest
men , itwasailian that floated around the
world as a demagogue , who lived upon the
flatteries of those who didn't understand
him.The vote was then taken upon the motion
of Senator Hale to strike out section 2 of tlio
bill. This Is the section which established

Mr. Logan thought It might not be well to

the minister should havu been hindeied by
any delay or cuibarassincnt , In view ot the
fact that the collector at S'vn ' Francisco
had been specially Instiucted to extend to
him the usual couiteslcs to icpiesent itlves of
