A Motor nnil lOn liio Collide .
Ci.nvr.iANi > , O. , Sept. 0. A frightful acci
dent occurred at the Wilson avcnuo crossing
of the Now York , Chicago & St. Louis rail
road at 7:30 : o'clock tonight , by which at least
a dozen persons were terribly injured , some
fatally. The crossing Is on a steep grade ,
down which runs an electric street railroad
lino. At the time t'-o accidout occurred
freight train was standing close to tbo cross
ing on the south truck. An electric motor
drawing one car was approaching from the
south. The safety gates wcro up and the
road apparently clear. Just as tlio motor
crossed the railroad track n locomotive ,
running about twenty miles an hour ,
dashed out from behind the freight
train. The pilot of the engine struck the
electric train between the motor and trail
car. tearing thorn apart and hurling ono to
each sldo of the track. At least a score of
persons were on the trail car , and they were
tumbled about In nil directions , some being
hurled a dozen feet away and others pinned
under the cnr , which was demolished. The
btreet railroad barns were close to the scene
of the accident , and a rescuing party was
* eon on baud. The victims were taken from
the wreck nnd hurried away In ambulances to
the hospital within a short space of time. All
of them wcro sobadly injured that they had
to bo carried from tbo wreck.
Tnero was no warning whistle and the bell
was not. rung. The engine plowed right
through the street cars mm the screams of
the frightened passengers rose nbovo the
crashing of the frames of the cars. A mo
ment later the injured passengers were
lying about groaning In agony. Two sisters ,
Louisa and Minnie Mock , were in the car.
They wcro lifted out ami partially revived ,
Minnie's body was terribly crushed and
"Hood trickled from an ugly wound in her
head. She was takea to St. Alexis' hos
pltal and died in halt an hour.
Her sister Louisa was very badly
hurt about the head and arms , the
muscles of the richt forearm being torn away
from the bone. She will doubtless recover.
The wrecked cars were bespattered with
blooil , mid the hands , faces nnd clothing of

LONDON , Sept. ( ) . [ New York Herald
Cable-Special to Tin : Um.i-On : Thursday
morning last the steamer Olenenrn , laden
with merchandise nnd carrying but a handful
of passengers , moved slowly out of the south
dock at London and steamed away down the
Thames bound for Singapore and China.
On board was one of Slam's
distinguished sons , a handsome
man aDout thirty , in whoso veins flows noble
blood , and who for a twelve month past bus
been his country's representative In Paris.
When he first came over , on board the ship
he was a favored ono , ns ho had come with
servants eager at his call and all that was
best on the ship at his disposition. On the
morning in question this line looking
young fellow , whoso grandfather Is the regent -
gent of Siam aud who had himself mndo his
mark at the gay cnpltul for elegant dress nnd
manners and lavish style of living , stood
among the common sailors , mostly Cnlna-
tnen , and with arms bared , scrubbed
away with a will at tlio brasses
on the deck. Ho was working his
passage to Singapore ns the steward's as
sistant. It Is a sad story of a line position
and still finer prospects , the result of years
of patient labor all tumbled over nnd
shrivelled away because this high spirited
diplomat from Sinm , being in Paris wantoito
do as Parisians do and ho did it. About
six months ago young Kapath that is the
name he gave on the ship , his own being a
kind of transformation of the same , was made
a member of the worst gambling hell In Paris.
Night after night his liveried coach
man used to wait outside while his swarthy
master exchanged his coins for grim exper
ience. At ilrst eights and nines ran in his
favor and his dark eyes flashed. Ho drove
away with his pockets crammed with 100-
frauc notes nnd ho thought ho had found n
sure road to riches , but ho hadn't , though.
In May and Juno the tldo of luck ran strong
in his favor and more than one fair Parislcnno
can tell with what oriental profusion
ho showered his gold upon his friends.
At the battle of flowers in Dols no turnout
was richer with garlands thaii his nnd no
hand more lavish in aiming rare bouquets at
every pretty face. Much envied and admired
was ho that day as he rolled along behind his
high stepping pair and yet ho was the
same who lust Thursday , on hands
and knees , was scrubbing his way to
an eastern land aboard the steamer Gloncarn.
Yes , of course It was some old story having
lost his winnings , llnpath proceeded to lose
everything else. Ho got deep In debt , and
wnon his government learned the truth , about
a month ago , ho was relieved from his post
nnd recalled to Siam recalled in disgrace.
Tills blow came like a thunder
bolt , and while it stunned him nt
first it llnally brought him to his senses.
Having made bis bed ho declared to a friend
bo would lie on It , however hard it proved ,
and ho wired back to Slam his resignation ,
then selling all that ho had Jewels , furni
ture , pictures , even to his clothing he suc
ceeded lu paying nil that ho owed , but ho
had scarcely anything left In the world ,
barely enough to reach London a
week ago. I met him hero by chance , no
longer the dashing young swell I had known
in Paris. "I haven't a penny , " said ho ser
rowfully. "no placotto lay my head , hut , "
drawing himself up proudly , "no man can
ever nay that I went away from Paris owing
him u franc. No I will not appeal to my
friends , although I have plenty of them.
What's ' the use ! As wo say in the cast ,
'When a man luughs the world laughs with
him , but when ho weeps ho weeps alone.1
Get back to my country or
faintly in disgrace. Never. I shall
work my way to Cambodia , whcro ho king
knows me. There I shall commence life over
again nnd who knows" laughing gaily "In
five or six years I may bo back again in Paris
as happy ns over. Only bear in mlnU I shall
never , never gamble again. "
Those brief facts in his sad story Kapath
authorized mo to publish , "but only , " said
ho , "when I am far away on the sea. My ex
perience may help some poor devil who is
mining himself with that cursed baccarat.
I hope it may. Well , old chop , good-bye. "

The opinion of exports , both British nnd

tion of the German licet and the wonderful
developments of the navy. Public interest
In tlio maneuvers is slight , but the emperor
has kept attention centered upon his move
ments by suggestive utterances at ofllclal
banquets , obviously aiming to proclaim
steadfast adhesion to the Austrian alllauco.
Ho seized the occasion of n dinner given at

Herr Hcrrufath , minister of the interior ,
has issued a circular advising the local
authorities to Increase' the police

the expiration of the anti-socialist law. This

ment looks for an outbreak of disorders. Sev
eral municipal councils have Ignored the cir
cular and some have openly refused to admit
the necessity for such measures. Tlio ex
tremists among the socialists have gained ac
cessions of strength through tbo partial ad
hesion of Herr Yohniir. At their meetings in
Berlin they eagerly discuss his proposal
that the coming congress declare gthat theo

that a formal declaration against religion

LONDON , Sept. 0. [ Now York Herald
Cable-Special to Tun Dec. ] Tha American
citizen who is In n hurry to reach his natlvo
land nnd who has not secured passage , will
experience much difficulty for u month or
tiioro in making arrangements to cross the
Atlantic. There nro always chances nt the
last moment to secure n passage , but barring
these chaueoj , neither love nor money
will secure a cabin on any Atlantic
liner within n couple ofweeks , and on a

It was supposed last year that the number
of Americans attracted to Europe by the
Paris exposition would not bo equalled for

also say that the rush of returning travelers ,
or those who want to return , was never so

very arrogant spirit , which the other dele

a consequence of that ho was not

a rebuff which would tnko the conceit out of
most men. Moreover , ho was continually re
buked by the chairman or by delegates for
his overbearing conduct. Once ho defied the

A more ungracious act than Lord Sack-

by ono of tno men occupying a prominent
position. The facts are well known. Mr.
George W. Childs of Philadelphia presented
a very handsome drinking fountain to
the town of Stratfovl-on-Avon In honor
of the memory of Shakespeare. This
fountain was erected in the market
place and some time afterwards Lord Sack-
villo set up a claim for compensation , alleging
that the fountain encroached upon his prop
erty. The answer of the town authorities
is that tlio market place has always been pub
lic property and that the fountain does not

Mr. Childs a lesson. Ho must not think of

being pretty strong on the wing. Some

duty to be placed on llsh , Mr. Spooner gave it
as his views that while llsbcrmcnon tlio east

Unit the fisheries on the great lakes should
bo thrown open to free competition. If thcro
was anything In thopiopositlon of reciprocity
the United States ought now to throw open
its markets to Canadian fishermen.
Mr. Gibson concurred in the view. It was
well that when the question of reciprocity
was treated with the United States should
have advantage of a position which was as
important In diplomacy as In war.
Mr. Cullom agreed la the mulu with Mr.
Spooiiur , The Canadian government had done
nothing that would entitle It to any favors or
privileges , and therefore bo did not feel like
entering into any reciprocity agreement with
It. Htlll ho believed the senate ought to
adopt the house proposition for free lish In
the interest of the poor people of the coun

that such ilsh shall bo admitted f reo of duty

Gorman moved to reduce the rate to 8 cents
Before tbo discussion closed the question as
to the extension of time for the considera

Mr. Aldrich offered u committee amend

Chicago .Shippers SatlsUcd wltli the
Condition oC AlViilrn.
CIIICACIO , Sept. 0. [ Special Telegram to
Tin : Iluu. ] "In spite of what Chairman
Hlunclmrd says , " said George C. Clark , ono
of Chicago's most prominent shippers today ,
"wo are perfectly satisfied with the condition
of the bill of biding question. Within ashort
time you will sco all the eastern roads using
a new bill of lading , which is satisfactory to
us. Neither the \Vabash nor Grand Trunk
will put tlio amended uniform bill into effect
of tills I have positive assurances. Chair
man Dlanchiird's statements nra misleading
and his interview yesterday was solely to
bolster up the courage of the lake lines , which
meet to discuss tlio bill of lading in lIiilTulo
on Monday. Ho wants to make the lake
lines think all the rail lines will adopt the
bill , nnd themselves bo thus forced to do It
ungracefully unless they take time by the
forelock and acrco on Monday to adopt It. if
Mr. Hlanchard succeeds In this plan ho would
have their consent as an additional leverage
to force consent from tno Grand Trunk anJ
Wuliiish when the matter comes up Tuesday
in tlio Central Traflle association , IJut wo
happen to know in advance that the scheme
will fail. "
- Tlio particulars of the change in front of
the Lake Shore road on the bill of lading
were explained today by a Lake Shore ollldal
as follows : "Either from the boycott of the
shippers or the New York Central strilco , or
both , our percentage of east-bound shipments
has dwindled from 23 to 1 ! ) . On the otner
hand that of the Grand Trunk bus gone up to
iiO Irom II , dating In both cases from the bo-
r nl tbo hovrott. ( In instructions i'rnm
President Newell wo forwarded to him lust
Monday a written statement Irom every Chicago
cage shipper , giving the shippers' opinion of
the bill of lading. Every shipper was violently
lently opposed to it and the majority of them
declared they would continue the boycott as
longas the Lakc Shore used the billof lading.
It nuido n very strong showing and my opin
ion Is Hint the Lnko Shore will give notice
Tuesday of u return to the old form , until anew
now bill can bo drawn up nt a conference of
railroad men and shippers. "

upon which was based the advance in eastbound -
bound Missouri river rates , is destined to
end with its ninety days of agreed life , " said
Trafllo Manager Ilanloy of the Atchisoti to
dny. "Wo will llvo up to tlio agreement as
long as It lasts , but after that wo will go it
ulono. Last month wo honestly obtained III
per cent of tlio traffic and were Immediately
served with a notice from tlio board of chair
men that wo must turn over some of
our business to the Hock Island.
Well , we agreed to do It nnd will stick to our
word , but we will never turn over a pound

Tlio demoralized Missouri river rates wcro
advanced solely because tbo formation of the

the same to the headquarters at Washington
and was given permission to bring tbo luxt-

published this feature as one of the great at

that the battery was to bo here.

tery of nearly 11M men arrived In the city
