The details of ' the wreck which occurred on the New York , Pennsylvania & Ohio road , flvo miles west of this city this morning proves the disaster to ho one of the most horrible tluit has oc curred In this vicinity. Tim colliding trains wcroth'o through New York express from Chicago mid the double header west hound freight train. Both trains were over two hours late , mid the express being entitled to the right of way , was running without orders. Conductor Murray of the freight train , takljig It for granted that the express was in , pulled out for Geneva. The two trains the express running forty-five and the freight fifteen miles an hour met on n long forest-hidden curve with a terrible crush. The engine of the express train and The first engine of the freight were raised bodily In the nlr and stood on the furnace ends , the pilot pointed upwards and the driv ing wheels locked. Both engineers and lire- .men were pressed between the Iron ruins. The sight was sickening , but was soon covered from view by friendly blankets. The baggaco car , express car and smoker of the passenger train were completely wrecked. The baggiigo car telescoped into the smoker , splitting It open , and sweeping every seat from the floor. The total number of passen gers on the train was fifty-three , fifteen of whom were in the smoker. All. of these were moro or less Injured , and William H. Stephcnson , of Toledo , died shortly after being taken from the ruins. The crash was heard for a great distance 'J and soon the neighborhood were aroused and people living In the vicinity cuuic to the scene. The passengers who were not Injured , seemed dazed and for 11 few minutes everybody stood speechless. The groans and cries that came from the ruins soon brought them to the realization of the situation and innshoit time n largo force of men were at work systematic ally doing till they could. Two wrecking trains soon arrived , followed by a passenger train on which to transfer the passengers and bring the wounded and dead to Mcitdvillo. Tito wrecking crows worked with a will and BOOH a portion of the mangled remains of ilrcuian Hume were taken from the week. They were In an almost unrccogniz- Table form and presented a sickening sight , limbs and lower part of the body huv- [ ing been ground to pulp. Hume's aped father Siad arrived and his cries and screams when ho gazed ipon the mangled body wore heart rending. The body of Engineer Swan was exposed but It was so tightly wedged in the wreck that no attempt was then made to move it. A portion of the body of Engineer Googo and also an arm and shoulder of Fire man Irwln could bo seen. The work of clear- ling the wreck was prosecuted in the face of u driving storm of sleet that lasted the entire afternoon. Those of the passengers who were not injured were transported and sent forward , while the dead and wounded were brought to this city. The railroad officials ulia everything In their power for the comfort of the Injured. Following in a list of the casualties : , KH.T.F.n' ' ENGINEER SWAN , Meadvilla. ' ENGINEER GOOGE , Meadville.

The * Order to Strike on'the IlcndlitK Not Generally Coinpllod With. Pint , umf.i'iiu , Dec. 31. The action by the local assemblies of the Knights of Labor last night endorsing the order of the Heading convention for a general s'rlko of railroad employes did not materially effect the busi ness of the Heading company to-day. The men did not quit work with the alacrity which the leaders anticipated and , In many cases , they refused jKiInt blank to strike , pre ferring to renounce allegiance to the Knights of Labor. At the freight depot of the Wil low street wharf several hundred freight handlers and laborers struck. ThU delayed business for u time but In tho'courso of a few hours thu company had gathered a largo number of non-union men from vari ous joints und put them to work. The movement of regular freight trains was but slightly effected. There were many a\t- \ pllcants for work ut the main office of the company. Kvcrythlng remained quiet nt Port Richmond. But the strike continued with unabated vigor so far as the men of local assembly No. O.'Js.'i were coiiccrnctl. "I nin simply giving my own opinion , " said Secretary Huycsof the general executive board of the Knights of Labor in dlscuasing the situation , "but It is my impression that the executive board will not Interfere In the .malter. It hasn't been asked to yet , and I don't believe it will be. The strike Is In the hands of the Reading employes themselves. " Tlio Hltimtlon nt Other Point * . HEADING , Pa. , Dec. 01. Thu most extraor dinary efforts wcru made by the strikers In coal regions and In Philadelphia to-day to in duce the men In the shops In this city to strike. Telegrams Innumerable were sent hero making nil sorts of promises of support nnd pledging that if the Ucadlng men would Join In the strike It would extend to every station ull over thu Heading system. Thcsu telegrams were all answered with stern re fusal , the small ] > orcciitugo of those in favor of the strike not during to go out. Advices from the coal regions this after noon say the mrtst serious difficulty is on the Shutnokin and Mahaney division where hardly a do/en mon uro ut work. In the Mahoney valley thorn arc standing 4,000 loaded curs unable to bo moved. Want i\tni : I'uy For Overtime. Pmsm no , Dec. HI.

Ho left this morn- ig for Scott Haven to call out the minors nt .Villiam . L. Scott's mines. This action will ravcnt the strike of several thousand miners ii this district. Another Inflammatory Appeal. Nnw YOIIK , Dec. 31. A conference of dele atcs from the local Knights of Labor asscm- ilies of the Reading railroad system was held .ere to-day and issued an appeal "to the vorkmcn and workwomen of America nnd utsido of it , " to support the Reading strik- rs by contributions declaring the flght theirs .s well. It is very bitter in its denunciation f thu Reading management , charging it with eueption , bad faith nnd plunder. It declares hat telegraph wires were manipulated to rcvent the managers of the strike from lommunicating with their men at other > olnts , nnd that the agents of the company icnt out .forged dispatches , causing an tip- caranco of demoralization among the cm- ilo.vcs ; that the management of the oud.hud been In negotiation with the Brothcr- lood of Kngineors for two weeks to supply inginecrs in cusc of a strike ; Hint they sub- .iducd . employment agencies und kept hun dreds of Men on hand to tnko the strikers' iluccs , and being thus fortified , forced the .ssue. The employes are appealed to to cast asldo petty Jealousies and quarrels and con sider that it is a fight to disrupt the orgunlza- ' Ion of the Knights of Labor. The circular further invites "trades unions , socialists , anarchists , Knights of Labor , and all others interested in bringing ubout a moro equitable condition of society to Join hands with us In striking down the system whoso representatives ut ull times combine to rush us. " It inveighs bitterly against the various newspapers which they quote as showing that thu press is against the Knights und in favor of capital and culls on thu workinginen of the country to pit themselves against these nasters. The circular concludes by asserting that the workingmen owe nothing but vengeance nnd says : "You , Messrs. Corbln , Gould and Company , who uro representatives of "so ciety" to-day in your madness but succeed in arouslni' the slumbering demon. We have nothing to lose but our chains. " THK TEUUITOniKS.

[ Correspondence of the Bne. ] Not only will the territories ask for admission to statehood during the coming session of congress , but they at least a number of them will ask congress to appropriate money to bore artesian walls at various points within their borders. Of course , if they succeed In securing statehood they will not press the request for artesian wells , as they say they can furnish their own money under n state government , although they believe it is a work tlio federal govern ment should ao.

Martin , the unsophisticated congrcssmat from Texas , who succeeds .ludgo Ragun , bj bio wing out the gas ut a hotel here , a ie\\ \ nights since , has attraoted attention , to tin ircncral verdancy of many members of tin lower housu of congress. During the past ton years there has no doubt that the average ago character of congressmen has degen crated to au alarming extent. An old Wash mgtonlan , whoso memory runs back llfli years , discussing this subject to-day said : "I bcliovoiin lunemlimut should bu mndi to thu constitution , prescribing additloua qualifications for members of congress Civil service examinations are re quired of pel-sons who are to hi appointed to thousand dollar ehcrkshlps , thu would puizlu a college graduate. Yet mem hers of congress uro ulcctcdtouvory congrcs who could not begin to pass such cxami nations who do not know how to spell com mun words or cauiiut formulate a dozen con sccutlvo sentences correctly , and , what i still worse , know absolutely nothing of tlu science of government and have not an orlgl nal Idea on the economic , financial ami othc questions that conn.-before them. How snui men who come to congress of late years gc elected passes understanding. Some o them were evidently never outside of the ! districts until they started for Washington Think of u member of congress blowing ou the gas or trying to pat co.il on thu rcgiste or attempting to light his cigar on an oK'cti-i light. Yet all of these things have bee : done by men elected to help make laws fo sixty millions of people. And cjc ! congress is gutting worse. In point of h lellcctual capacity. Look in the prescn congress for.tho Webster , Bouton.Claj' Culhoun , Douglass , Cm-wins , Wudcs or Lin coin. Or oomo down tooven , u late congress tho. forty-third , und com'paro a few names o members of the lower housu alone , euoU a James O. Blalnc , Jamas B. Bock , Benjamin. F. Hutlor , L. Q. C. Lanmr , William Ii. Nib , lack , James A. Uarlleld , Joseph H. Haw ley. Kppa Muntor , Lymun Tremuln. Jeremiah M , Wilson , William A. Wheeler , Alexander H < Stephens , with the names of members elec ted to the fiftieth congress. This certainly shows the truth of what I say. Each con gress shows n decline In the intellectual ca pacity of the members comprising It , and of course it follows that the character of the laws enacted shows a like deterioration. "This Is not the lament of nn old man ovrr the decline of the times , " added the octogen arian. "There are as many big brainy men now as then , if not more , but the trouble Is Unit they nro not sent to congress. In the old dy ; J it was an honor to be a congressman , und the giants were elected , while now the honoris so cheap that the pigmies get them selves elected. Very few of the members of the Fiftieth congress represent the Ititclll- gencu or the character of the respcctlvo dis tricts. They have succeeded in trotting the endorsement of the wire manipulators and wind | Hlitlclans and are pushed through Uic primaries over the better und abler men. " WOIIKKI ) AOA1NST IIIMSnU" . "I heard a good story ubout a delegate to congress from ono of the very fur western territories , " said Commissioner of Civil Ser vice , Oherly to somu friends the other evenIng - Ing ; "and for the relation of it we will call him Voorhees , of thu territory of Washing ton. " "During the vacation preceding the conven ing of the lust congress , Voorheos was mak ing a heroic effort to have u poUmnstur u | > - pointcd for ono of the principal cities in his territory. Ho laid his man's numo before the ixjstmustcr general , together with proper endorsements und recommendations , und returned to his homo on the Pacitlc. A short time after going homo Voorhees re ceived word from Washington that the post master general hud concluded to appoint an other man than the ono recommended by the delegate. There was another application on Ilia In the department , and It hud been pre sented by very roputublo men from the terri tory , nnd those in opposition to Voorhees. who , as soon as ho heard of the likelihood of this upiKiintment , hustled off to the telegraph to stop it. " Voorhees wired tlio "Delegate postmaster- general to not make the npiralntmcnt of a postmaster at tlio city where the contest was going on till ho ( Voorhees ) could arrive-here ; that he had something to say ; that ho didn't want the appointment of the niun likely to bo given the place. "There was a good deal of agitation going hrough'tho brain and veins of the young del- gatu. 'Could it bo possible that the post- nustor-generul would miiku that appointmeirt , igalnst the expressed wish of the delegate rom the territory , and a democratic dolo- ; atc , too1 ! ho asked himself ubout every half lour during his first day's journey towards ho national capital , for the took the first rain for this _ city. Nervous over ttio natter , tlio delegate got out ut a tele graph office and wired the postmaster gen eral to not make the appointment till he ainu ; that ho wus on the roud hero. Early he next morning the delegate , having studied over the matter during the night and icing still moro nervous , sent another mcs- sage to the iwstmastcr general , asking that ho appointment bo hold up till ho arrived. At dinner that day ho duplicated the iiics sago. During the afternoon the delegate tad the train wait long enough to permit him o file another message to the postmaster gen eral , asking , in moro positive language , that ho appointment bo hold up till ho arrived. "Tho telegraph offices along the route of hat delegate did u good business for four or ive days on franks. Finally the train bcur- ng the delegate reached Washington. All agony has an end sometime. . "Without waiting till ho visited a hotel to do his toilet or rest , the delegate from Wash- upton territory called u hack at the depot and old him to drive direct to the residence of ho postmaster general. It was then utter .ho hours % vhcn departmental business is done. Cho postmaster general was ubout going to dinner. "Have you mudo that appointment yeti" nquired the delegate , almost out of breath , as soon as ho entered the room. "Yes , " was the reply. "Then I um too late to have it hold up I" "Too late , " cumo the answer. 'But didn't I telegraph you. " "Yes , many times , " replied the posmaster- generul. "I had your papers and recommen dations , and I could sco no reason why I should wait about appointing youiunan , and J did so yesterday. " The delegate .looked . sort of dazed , und moved out with mingled iride und embarrassment. He had been vorklng against himself. THK STORM. Knllwny Trnfllu Generally Interrupted " "Tlirotiitlinut the Northwest , Dec. 31. The snow storm ivhich has prevailed throughout 'tho north west for two days shows signs of breaking to-night , though all western points report snow still fulling in greater or less quantity. During tills afternoon the wind , which , throughout the storm , has been from the south , shifted to the northwest nnd it is growing colder. Ruilwny truftlo is generally interrupted nnd several of the 'less important western und southern roads uro entirely abandoned , while the trunk lines are moving trains with difficulty. The storm is most severe through northern Iowa , south ern and western Minnesota and Dakota. In the latter section it is regarded as the worst for many years and a repetition of the fam ous blockade of 1SSO is looked for. This even ing the mercury ranges from 10 to 130 degrees ubove , throughout the northwest. The snow fall is from one to two feet. Blown Up By n Blast. MAUQUETTK , Mich. , Doc. 31.

I learn that the democratic senators have npitolnted a commlttco to confer with the democrats in the house In the compilation of n tariff bill. The committee consists of Mr. Kcniia , of West Virginia , Mr. Hearst , of California , and Mr. Jones , of Arkansas. It was appointed nt a secret caucus several days ugo. Considering the views of thuso gentlemen on the subject of turlff reform , the composition of the committee- slgnlll- cunt. Mr. Kcnna is a radical protectionist of the Handall school. His stuto has developed into a turlff protection state by a largo ma jority. Mr. Hearst Is by no moans a radical tariff reformer. Ho boHoves that the tariff should bo revised , but is In favor of pro nounced protection to many of the industries. Mr. Jones also entertains moderate views as to the revision of the tariff. All of the gentlemen arc against the internal revenue system and believe that the tax on .tobacco should bo abolished and that the whisky tax should bo reduced very materially , while the tax on fruit , brandy , etc. , should bo repealed. , The appointment of this commlttco shows that there Is "no such u thing as an "udmlnistru- ion tunff bill" nnd that all that is to bo pro- ) oscd on the subject Is yet to bo compiled. The idea in selectlngthlskiiul of u commlttco s said to bo to effect * a compomlso on the tariff bill a measure which will not be ex- .renicly radical and which will udmlt of mu- erial modification of the. Internal rcvcnuo system. TUP. PACiriC IIA1I.110AD QUESTIONS. The publication to-day of the official re- Krts of the Pacific railroad commissioners ins brought out a great deal of comment upon the subjects they trout. I am told that , he president wus extremely nnxlous that Mr. Crisp , of Georgfu , should bo chairman of .he-house committee on Paclllo railroads be cause hu is an ardent advocate of the po < I- .toii assumed by the administration on the debts of the Pacifies. The president is anx ious that the Outhwalto bill , which is prac- tlcully the sumo us the recommendations of Lhc majority of the Pacific commission and telegraphed the BEE lust night , should bo > assed by congress. It wns to secure the success of this measure that ho desired tlio selection of Mr. Crisp as chairman of the committee. Mr. ; Crisp is u good .uwyer . and Wa ? second on the committee in . 'tho' " lust congress. When the house sclccted'Mr. Crisp as chair man of the committee''on elections , taking jverythingout of the hands of the speaker , 10 was. of course , taken out of the line of possibility in relation to'tho Pacific railroad lucstion. Mr. Outhwaltc. of Ohio , who was Mnon the committee last year , is to bo made chairman in the place of Mr. Crisp. The president endorsed 'Mr. ' Outwaltho , but be lieves that Mr. Crisp would be a stronger man. The president'may not make any re commendations to' ' congress on the subject , but it is known beyohd any question of doubt thut he is taking a very active- interest in the debt of the Pacificrallrosillsand that lie is ad vocating the proposKto'ns'im'adc by Commis sioners Anderson mill Littler. CUU.OM AND rOSTAI. TKLnOIlAPII. Senator Culloni says Ijo thinks the amend ment lid will offci' to Ills postal telegraph bill , reducing the tariff .he proposes for press matter , will bring to the supjwrt of his prop osition nearly all of the newspapers of the country. Hu acknowledges that the press rates In the bill that ho has introduced nro considerably higher than those paid at pres ent. Ho proposes in the amendment whicn ho will offer to make the rate 25 cents per 100 words within 500 miles , 30 cents per 100 words between 500 and 1,000 miles , etc. Where the despatches are dupli cated and "drop copies" nro made , the post- mastcr general may flx the rate , which is to bo very much less than the tariffs named. Senator Cullom bus taken the suggestions In his amendment from the tariffs charged in England. The senator finds that the press is pretty solidlv against jwstul telegraph and ho is going to try to do away with its opposition. MONEY FOB KKOKUK.

' Our Wool Trade With UusHln. WASHINGTON , Dee. 31. The United States consul at Odessa , Russia , has made u special eport to the department of state In regard to ho wool trade between southern Russia and ho.Unlted States. The conclusions of the eport , which is contained in a pamphlet of 'orty-flvo pages , arc briefly stated us follows : That the wool trade between south Russia and the United States has been carried on for .wenty years , greatly to the detriment of ho revenue of the United States. All of the wool shipped from south Russia to the United States Is the property of four'American hn lorters. These importers , in combination witli shippers , have conspired to prevent the recognition of the market price for so-called donskoi washed wools at Rostoff-on-Don. All of these wools art1 , and over have been , scoured wools. These wools have in many Instances entered the United States at low the duty limit Sjtfc. , others again at high the duty (5c. ( ) when all mould have paid duty as scoured wools. The fraudulent designation of these wools lias benelltted American importers and been a corresponding loss to honest wool mer chants and to the United States government. That this loss will reach between $15,000,000 and $20,000,000 is very probable. The report further says that the charges in the invoices of wool shipped from Odessa and RostofT are false and arc introduced for the purpose of defrauding the revenue that is , the omissions charged are never paid us com missions ; that the legitimate and proper charges have been excessive ; that the gross weight in an invoice has caused great loss of revenue , and been successfully practiced for many years ; that the interests of the United States requires the permanent closing of the Rostoft" consular agency , and that a salaried consul should be scut to Rostoff- on-Don. 1IONKY FOHTHK LADIES. Hoiurich Betel , t'tio tenor , has returned to Europe. Russian styles are In favor , and there is a rage for furs. Quite n number of women are engaged in fruit-growing in California. Fashionable favor is about equally divided between long and short wraps. Boston has a female supervisor of public schools , Mrs. Louisa Hopkins. Imitation furs in the form of seal Astrakhan and other plushes are much wont. Wings and quills are the favorite trimmings for seal hats , cups , and turbans. All' short'wrapi , whether of seal or cloak ing stuffs , have longe tabliko fronts. The circular , fur lined or wadded , is only used nowadays as an extra carriage wrap. Striped fabrics are In the ascendant , and vivid colors on neutral grounds the preferred form. Henry Irving-ami company drew ovcr21.- 000 at their last week's performance in Phil adelphia.

This case Is ono of the most sensational and has more peeullarfoatures In It than any which Was ever developed before In the state of Iowa. Billings , a man of fort.s live years of age , was a respected lawyer of the to\\n of Wavcrly. His wife was a woman of Him' flguro amfwith many charms of feature and manners , but a good deal younger than her liusb.itid. Will Klngsloy was but twentv tlvo _ years of age. but brilliant to a degree , a law graduate and so well read and popular that ho was , easily successful in being elected county attorney. Thu two men ut one time hud mi office together and business relations. Ono day , two weeks ngo , Billings culled at Kingslcy's olllce. Suddcnlv passers bv or the street were startled bv the report ol pistol shots and Hilllnus came running dowi. the stairs crying out that Kingslcy had shot him. Citi/ens ran up stairs mid on entering King.sley's office found him dead on this floor with n bullet In his brain. lillllnu's claimed that the dead man had shot himself. A month previous to this HU lings had hint the young man arrested , thu warrant charging him with seduction , It being sworn to by a girl In poor circum stances. She afterward confessed that the charge was not true ami that Billings had In duced her to swear to the warrant. Frouitcs thnouy adduced at the inquest of Kingsley it , developed that Billings had set about effect ing the ruin of Kingsley in the most systema tic manner. Ho had forged hi- * own wife's name to notes directed to thu lawyer , the contents of the notes being full of loving terms and asking Ivingstcy to meet her at her own house while Billings wamiwuy. Kingsley replied in good faith declining to muku the assignation mid warning the sup posed feinulu writer to desist from her course. Of course the reply fell into the hands of Billings. Later , ho oven went so fur us to prepare notes of hand , it has been found out.coiivoying nil of Kingsloy's property to himself. It is believed that on the dav of the shooting Billings wont to Kingsluy's ofllce to try by blackmail to get him to put his signature to the notes. The evidence us to the uluckmull and forgeries wus direct , but there was no witness to the shooting niul that part will have to bo proven by eircum stantlal evidence. The Iow KcKlstry I/aw.
