Accident to the London-Paris Nl ht
Kxprcss Train ,
ICopvrteM 1S > 3 tin Jama ( Ionian JttnncU. }
PAIIIJ , Sept. 5. [ New York Herald Cable
Special to THE Dnn.l Early yesterday
morning Paris was startled with a report
that a frightful accident had happened on
the Northern railway. Information was
soon forthcoming that the English night
mall from London to Paris had como to grief
nnd the numberof killed nnd Injured was vari
ously reported at from forty down to two or
three. Hut llttlo attention was paid these
reports until It became evident that some
thing really had happened. As usual , the
delivery of the English lettcM failed to take
place at the second dclUcry , and still
nothing came from London. This circum
stance would not have been uncommon In
winter , but is very unusual this titno of the
year. Something ukln to a panic then1 oc
curred In business circles. The wildest
rumors wcro quickly afloat , telegrams wcro
flashed by the dozen to London Inquiring
after remittances , unanswered letters , par
cels of scrip and many thousand * of articles
of value that go to 1111 the tons of mall b.igs
that pass nightly between the two capitals.
As the d.iy went on trustworthy informa
tion reached hero nnd It was ascertained that
though a serious accident had really taken
place , It had not resulted in a ircneral mas
sacre of passengers , who reached Paris safe
and sound nt U:30 : , rather more than
three and one-half hours late. Mails
were delivered early In the afternoon ,
It appears that the mail train , a few miles
this sldo of Amiens , had struck a long Iron
girder that hud fallen from n passing train ou
the up main line. The locomotive was
thrown on the metals and hurled down the
embankment , followed by the tender and ono
passenger coach. Fortunately the remainder
of the train , though It left the track , did not
roll down the embankment so a terrible dis
aster was averted. The passengers , sud
denly awakened from their slumbeis nnd
turned out Into the dark and de-solato stretch
of railway line , were naturally Inclined to
panic , and tlio overturned and wrecked en
gine added Its llnal puffs und snorts to the
screams of startled women.
Altogether a more lugubrious scene can
hardly bo imagined , It was not long , how
ever , before a special catno down in hot haste
from Amiens and picked up the frightened
passengers , who happily were not numerous ,
and they were dispatched to Purls with all
speed. 'Following Is the otllclal report of the
disaster , which was embodied In a
report made by the minister of the
Interior : "Between Ailley nnd La
l-'alalsc the night mail from London ran into
a pii'co of iron work that had been dropped
by n goods train ; the consequence was that
the engine , twd carriages and the mull van
loft tbe rails and went over the embankment ,
between live and tlx meties high. Fortu
nately there was only ono passenger in the
carriage that went o\cr the embankment.
He was killed. The driver and fireman cs-
raped ; the guard received a compound frac
ture of the leg and other injuries. "
Tbo passengers escaped without Injury nnd
wcro conveyed back to Amiens and brought
on to Purls by another route , reaching Paris
at 'Ji 0 with the mails. There was no Inter
ruption to London and Paris trafllc , except a
delay of about a quarter of an hour. The
following account by one of the passengers
differs very materially from the ono given
ab'ovo : "As I was a passenger on theLondon-
Paris express , pcihaps it may interest your
readers to see an account of the disaster that
occurred to our train near Amiens , the de
tails of which will doubtless appear tomor
row in nil the French papers. Tlio train left
Charing Cross station punctually at 8:15 : p.
m. We had a very smooth passage across the
chunncl nnd reached Calais ou time. AVe left
Calais ut 1 p.m. forPuris. There were not very
many passengers ou the train , probably not
over'llfty altogether. I was asleep towards
morning , when there was a sudden shock aud
I found myself sprawling on the floor of the
coupe ; then thcro was n frightful silence and
I realized that a disaster had happened. "Wo
had been going at full speed and were fifteen
kilometres on this sldo of Amiens. I Jumped
out of the train and ran towards tlio engine.
It seems that a hollow iron girder about
twenty feet long and a foot square such as
are used in the construction of bridges had
fallen from a freight train and lay parallel
with the metals and midway between them
and the express. The train came dashing
along und butted against the fallen girder nnd
drove it into the ground. The iron girder be
came a lover nnd to.-sod the engine on tbo
metals and down the steep embankment. On
top of the engine was piled tUo tender and on
top of the tender was tno second-class passen
ger car. The baggage car hod broken its coupl
ing and stood at right angles across
the metals , blocking both lines.
The rest of the train remained slanted over
the embankment. The stoker was smashed
to a Jolly. A number of persons were In
jured , and I believi ) several were killed nnd
badly cut. The guard had his legs broken
and the engineer was badly scalded. A
special train was at once sent out from
Amiens with doctors , stretchers and nm-
bulanco stores. Passengers wcro conveyed
by the Brussels express to Paris , where we
arrived at 'J a. m. When I left the place of
the disaster they were clearing away the
debris to ilnd the victims. I am confident
that this disaster would have been entirely
avoided had the cnginn been provided with a
proper headlight , and above all with an
American cowcatcher , which , reaching clear
across the rails , would have prevented the
girder from getting under the engine and
prying It off the track. Among the passen
gers was an American doctor , but ho didn't
appear to bo very busy. "

of the Hyde 1'nrk Gas Com
pany Withdraws Ills Petition.
Cuic oo , Sept. 5. [ Special Telegram to
TUG DEK.J President Judson of the llydo
Park gas company called on Mr. Hutehinson
of the city law department this morning and
imparted the surprising information that ho
desired to withdraw his petition for a permit
to lay K 3 pipes along certain streets In Hyde
park for tno purpose of connecting the In
diana gas lields with Chicago. Mr. Judson
gave no reason for this action , after having
created so much comment and several small
sensations , but It Is not likely that an effort
to get the right to lay thcso pipes will bo
dropped. Tlio Idea seems to bo put down the
extension of the Hyde park company's
pipe , i > ernlt ) or no permit , tlo the

goon making connection with the mains from
the Indiana gas fields , while the lawyers are
arguing the right to do so. The claim is
mndo that-thcro Is nothing in the franchise
of the llydo park company that forbids using
its mains for natural g.us nurpoics , that until
it goes Into an open combination with some
other Chicago company thcro Is no danger of
charter being forfeited. So whatever may
bo thu real purpose of the natural g.is pro-
lectors there seems to bo no way of stopping
thorn mull that purpose is openly avowed.
Then it will bo teD late. It is generally un

WASHINGTON , Sept. 5. In the house today
the Clayton-Brcckmridgo case was again
taken up and Mr. BrecklnrlJgo was accorded
the tioor to argue in his own behalf. Ho
charged the chairman of the committee ou
elections ( Kowcll ) with Impropriety In Judg
ing cases. That gentleman , in discussing
another election case , had referred to the
case from the Second Arkansas district and
had declared that lu that district five political
murders had occurred. lie called upon the
gentleman to nutno the murdered men ,
Mr. Kowcll said that they wcro Benjamin ,
Smith , Dcntlcy and Cl.iyton , whllo an at
tempt had been : nude to assassinate WnhL
Mr. Brecklnridgc denied the correctness of
the statement und called attention to the
fact that the gentleman himself concurred In
the report , which said that there was sus
picion only of thcso things being true. Ho
denied that the murders wcro political mur
ders. His distinguished and lamented oppo
nent had been foully and infamously mur
dered , but no ono had produced any evidence
that it was In any sense the result of public
antipathy or had como from a collective or
organized effort. The state of Arkansas had
done ten time * as much in money and effort
as it had over done before to detect and pun
ish the guilty. But the men who charged
either on the floor or lu the press that the
people of Arkansas , or any group of people
representing that state had over
shown sympathy with this infam
ous crime. or that ho ( Brecklu-
rldgo ) had any knowledge of it
In the remotest degree uttered that which
was cowardly and mean and which they
knew to bo false. [ Democratic apnlnuse.J
Ho then turned his attention to Judge McClure -
Clure , stating that on the return of the sub
committee the republican members endorsed
JlcClure for a high Judicial position lu Ar
Mr. Laccy of Iowa , chairman of the sub
committee , said ho recommended Judge Me-
Cluro In strong terms , believing him ono of
the best and most competent men in Ar
Mr. Brecklnridgc proceeded to quote from
a statement made by Mr. Blackburn , a re
publican , to show the bad character of Me-
Cluro. He criticised In severe language the
notion of the subcommittee , asserting that
he had been denied witnesses after ho had
been promised they would bo accorded him.
No greater debauchery of a free ballot ever
had oeen committed than by that committee.
Ho said in conclusion : "Come to your con
clusion and I will take an appeal to the people
ple , regardless of party , in the district I have
the honor to rcpiescnt on the broad ground
of common honesty , nud in November they
v 111 reverse both your conclusion and tbo
method of your conclusion. [ Democratic ap
Mr. Dalzcll of Pennsylvania read in detail
the testimony bearing on the theft of the
ballot box at Plutnmervillo and said Its theft
was absolutely necessary to lirecklnrldgo's
return. Yet ho stood here and asserted that
it had been stolen by republicans this re
publican ballot box. The house stood dumb-
lounded In the face of this sublime embodi
ment of Impudence. He commented upon the
backwardness of the state of Arkansas in en
deavoring to hunt down the murderers. . From
her desecrated soil the blood of John M.
Clayton ciied to heaven , not for vengeance ,
but for justice , and the niembers of both
sides were here as sacred ministers to exe

Sept. B. An evening paper
publishes the petition which It states is now
being diligently circulated among the stock
holders of the Illinois Central railroad , urg
ing them to rise la rebellion against the pres
ent management of the company nt whoso
head stands President Stuyvcsant Fish of
Now Yorlr , nnd who , until recently , has been
assisted by E. II. Ilarrlintin , also of Kcnv
York. The petition states that the company
Is practically on the verge of ruin through
the mismanagement of Its affairs. Itroviows
the present financial condition of the com
pany nnd then says :
"It is clear thai a crisis in the affairs of this
company is rapidly approaching and that If It

that owners should demand n change. The

road must secure Its business , now regard Its

must continue to be , a condition of unfriend

and provoking udvorbo legislation , both state
nnd municipal. "
The petition calls attention to the violation
of the l.uv of the state of Illinois , which re
quires that a majority of the directors of a

Comments on the Fish Matter.
CHICAGO , Sept. S. [ Special Telegram to
Tin : Bin.j A railway uows bureau says :
The New York telegram published this after
noon relative to the action of the Dutch se
curity holders of the Illinois Central in their
plan to oust President Fish vas a sensational
picco of news to Chlfago railroad men , but
was not in the nature of a surprise. It has
been known that for yejrs the Illinois Cen
tral debt has been growing.and its net earn
ings decreasing. The hint that General Me-
Nultn , into receiver of the AVababh , Is being
considered by the Holland stockholders as a
successor to President Fish is sus
ceptible of partial confirmation hero.
Just before ho closed his W bish :
receivership General McNulta , In an
swer to questions , told the writer that
ho intended making a business trip to Europe
and had no doubt of arranging for n better
position in the railroad world than his re
ceivership. General McNulta was positive
in his statements nnd from a close friend It
was afterward learned that Director Cooley ,
a dissatisfied 'stockholder of the Illinois Cen
tral , had urged General McNulta to stand for
the presidency of the i-oid. General McNulta
spent three months abroad , nil the time in
consultation with Holland and London bank
ers. On his loturn ho told th writer that ho
had not been able to spend any time sight
seeing and that ho had been all the tlrno
in consultation with foreign moneyed men
in regard to the railroad ontco ot which ho
Umd previously spoken. Ho said his mission
had been successful , but that matters would
not materialize for perhaps a year. It was
last October when this last conversation took
place. Meantime General Manager Jeffrey
of the Illinois Central had received such
treatment from Vlco President Ilarrlnian
that ho had indignantly resigned , the Chicago
cage papers devoting columns of space to the
event and pralso of Mr. Jeffrey's ahilltlos.
Mr. Jeffrey w.is then sent to Paris to study
Uio exposition for the Chicago world's
fair directors and ho In turn , after
finishing bis work In Paris , spoilt much
time with Holland and London finan
cial men. Since then Mr. Jeffrey has
dononothlngto earn money , giving his un
divided attention to the world's fair. Ho
refused the director generalship when It was
urged upon him unanimously. Ho likewise ,
as. ho told the writer nnd which was pub
lished nt the time , refused the general man
agership of the Lake Shore road. Likewise
he refused to accept thoofllco of general
manager of the urant locomotive works ,
which will soon bo removed to Chicago. Ills
final choice of n position has been a dally
matter of speculation among Chicago mil-
road men , all of whom hold him In the high
est possible estimation. Today doubt
seemed to huvo vanished. Kallroad
officials arc confident that Mr. Jcfirov
will go back to the Illinois Central.
Many think ho will take the place recently
vacated by the resignation of Vlco President
Harrlmau and that General McXulta will bo
elected president. Others think Mr. Jcllrey
will bo president.
"Tho resignation of President Stlckney of
the Chicago , St. Paul ft ICansas City road and
tlio election to the presidency of General
Manager Egan was another Important topic
of conversation among railroad men today.
There Is no thought of disagreement among
the stockholders , ono of whom snld today ;
* Wo | are sincerely sorry to lese Mr. Stick-
ney , but lie has so much other business that
hocouldnotln justice to himself retain the
ofllco. Ho wants to glvo more attention to
his Chicago stockyards plan , now almost
completed and In partial running order. All
of us have the most perfect confidence in
both Mr , Stlcknoy and Air. Egan,1"
