Train Crowded with Passengers
The wreck occurred at an abandoned
station known as Culber's Siding, one mile
east of Cascade In Ute Pass and twelve
miles from Colorado Springs.
A passenger rate war that has been In
offset for several months between the rail
roads running from this city to Cripple
Creek had been called off, the rates to con
tlnuo until July 1, and as a result the
train was crowded to Its uttermost.
The cars that left the track and wen
over tbo embankment north of the track
contained 71 passengers.
The seoond car on the train, a day coach
Was crushed to kindling wood, being
jturned completely over on Its end so that
in rear end of the coach was forward.
The third coach plunged clear through
the second, and It was In the forward end
f this car that Mr. English was killed
His neck was caught between two seats and
be was strangled to death before the peo

Colorado Springs from Cascade to play the
organ at St. Stephen's Episcopal church
of which he was organist.

RANGE BORROWS NO TROUPLE
Renewal of the Triple Allien..
Menace to Other . ';.
PARIS, June 29 The French press halls
the renewal of the triple alliance between
Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy,
which was effected by the signing of a
treaty in Berlin yesterday morning by the
Imperial chancellor of Germany, Count von
Buelow, and the Austrian and Italian am
bassadors to Germany, with considerable
equanimity, and expresses the belief that
the strength of the alliance has been much
enfeebled by dissensions with regard to the
tariff question and a better understanding
with Italy and France. The press con
siders, moreover, the possibility of a fur
ther Italian-Franco alliance deprives the
triple alliance of much of its force.
The Temps says: "A tariff war Is sbout
to graft Itself upon this political alliance
and the future will teach us bow far an
conomlc war Is compatible with diplo
matic understanding. Recent development
have modlded, if not the cordiality and
Intimacy between the powers of the triple
alliance, at least the efficacy and practical
value of the league."
Le Journal des Debate Is convinced that
the new alliance will not be the eame as
the old one, cither In spirit or letter, and
recalls the declaration of Slgnor Prlnettl,
the Italian minister of foreign affairs, In
the Italian Chamber of Deputies, that "m
military or diplomatic conventions will be
appended to the new treaty."
This paper concludes by eaylng: "The
triple alliance has been renewed under
unfavorable conditions, and these should
be taken Into account, not only In consid
ering its present renewsl, but with regard
to the prospects of a further renewal of
the alliance later."
DOES NOT PLEASE THE BEAR
Rossis Had Counted on Longer Con
tinuance of War In
ST. PETERSBURG, Juno 29. The fact
that no representative of the court or of
the ministry has called at the British em
bassy to offer the sympathy of Russia in
the matter of the illness of King Edward
baa occasioned much comment and Is gen
erally attributed to Russian chagrin on ac
count of the conclusions of peace In South
Africa. It Is said upon excellent author
ity that Count Lamsdorf, the minister of
foreign affairs, admitted that this peace
had upset Russia's calculations, which
were based upon a much longer contin
uance of Great Brittaln's difficulties In
8outh Africa. Count Lamsdorf Is reported
to be particularly nettled because Great
Britain did not consult the Boer delegates
in Europe In regard to peace.

PHILIPPINE 'SURE COMES NEXT
Irrigation Aet of Prime Importance
to the Western Section Cuban '
Reciprocity Bill Still
WASHINGTON. June 29. The work of
congress Is now practically closed, so that
it Is possible to sum up the record of what
ha been accomplished during the last seven
months, which constitute the first session
of the Fifty-seventh congress.
The session has been marked by excep
tional business activity with many ques
tions of far-reaching interest. With the
exception of the Cuban reciprocity bill
most of the larger subjects of general leg
islation have been enacted as laws or will
become such before the session closes.
Notable among these larger measures Is
the Isthmian canal bill, which consum
mates the efforts of half a century to link
together the waters of the Atlantic and
the Pacific. Aside from Its nstlonal and
International Importance this bill probably
Involves a larger sum of money than that
covering any other single undertaking by
the government outside of war expendi
tures. The Philippine civil government bill Is
another measure of far-reacblng impor
tance, extending to our remote Pacific pos
sessions a system of Internal government.
together with coinage, currency, banking.
corporation, timber and homestead laws.
Important General Laws.
Among the other Important general laws
enacted are those repealing the war rev
enue taxes, extending and making more
effective the Chinese exclusion laws, estab
lishing a tariff for goods to and from the
Philippines, extending the charter of na
tional banks for twenty years, establishing
permanent census office, restricting the
sale of oleomargarine by placing a high
tax on Imitation butter, providing a con
sular and diplomatic service for Cuba, es
tablishing an extensive system by which
the government will aid In the irrigation
of the arid sections of the west.
The repeal of the war revenue taxes re
duced taxation 173,250,000 and Is said to
be the largest single reduction of taxa
tlon ever made In this country. By this
step the last of the taxes Imposed at the
beginning of our war with Spain was wiped
The Philippine tariff act Imposes 75 per
cent of the Dingley tariff rates on ma
terials coming from the Philippines to the
United States and also Imposes on articles
entering the Philippines from the United
States the rates of duties established by
the Philippine commission.
The oleomargarine act results from sev
eral years of agitation. It place a rate of
10 cents a pound on substance colored to
Of Import to the West.
The irrigation act 1 of special Impor
tance to the development of the 'west. It,
creates an irrigation fund In the Treasury
department, into which Is to be paid the
proceeds of the sale of public lands In
the arid state. This fund In turn Is to be
used In storing water and establishing an
Irrigation system, the irrigation sections to
be open to homesteaders, who are to be
charged a proportionate share of the cost
of the improvement.
The Chinese exclusion law continues ex
elusion "until otherwise provided by law'
and also applies the exclusion to the "Island
territory under the Jurisdiction of the
Aside from these Important laws there
are a number of other measures of gen
eral Importance which have passed one or
both houses, but Lave not progressed to
the dnal stage. These include the anti
anarchist legislation, which grew out of
the assassination of President McKlnley.
Bill restricting anarchy and throwing safe
guards about the president have passed
both branches of congress, but it has
been Impossible to reach an agreement
in conference, ao that the subject goes
over until next December.
Statehood Bill Awaits Senate.
A bill giving statehood to Arizona. New
Mexico and Oklahoma, known as the on
niDus statehood bill, passed the house
and the senate has determined to take up
tne matter early In the next session.
The ship subsidy bill secured early at
tention in the senate, but the end of the
session has come without the measure
being reported to the house. As it passed
the senate, the bill grants graded sub-
sidles to steam and sailing vessel of
American tulld. In the house It has been
deemed desirable to let the subject go
over until ' the short session, when It Is
expected that a bill on the subject will
be reported and urged to passage.
The bill creating the Appalachian forest
reserve, Including a vast tract In the Ap
palachian mountain section of the south
has received favorable attention In both
houses, but has gone over for dnal adjust
ment ot differences until next December,
Another bill passed by the senate and
likely to become a law changes ths marine
hospital service to a national health bu
reau and gives the bureau larger power
and facilities for co-operating with the
state health authorities in quarantine and

Several other measure have advanced
to a certain atage and have then halted
without much prospect for further ad
These Include the bill for the election
of United States senators by direct vot
of the people. It passed the house by
practically a unanimous vote, but In the
senate has received little attention and Is
not likely to pass.
The house passed a bill relating to th
Immigration laws, codifying and amendln
these laws relating to Important changes
It baa been reported to the senate, but
there Is not much prospect of Its passag
at this session.
The bill defining th meaning of con
piracy in injunction eases passed the
house of representatives, but has not made
much progress In the senate. On the
other hand, the senate passed an lmpor
taut measurs, creating a Department of
Commerce, to be presided over by a cab
Inet officer, but It has mads no progress
In th bouse, noj having been reported
from the committee on commerce.
Pare Pood Mrasar Retarded,
Another bill ot Interest to the commer

EIGHTH WEEK OF THE STRIKE
Miners Say There Will Re No Break
and Operator Talk, of
Starting I p.
WILKESBARRE. Pa., June 2! The be
ginning ot the eighth week of the anthra
cite miners strike shows no change In the
ltuatlon. At President Mitchell's head
quarter National Board Member John Fel
on Is In charge during Mr. Mitchell's ab
sence In the west. Mr. Fallon said tonight
that tbe miners were Just as determined
as ever and unless there was arbitration
tbe strike Is destined to go on. Tbe na
tional board member also denied that there
was any suffering among the strikers. He
said so tar there was no privation and not
likely to be any for a long time to come.
The local operators seem to be a unit In
saying that a break in the miners' ranks
may come any time now. This belief Is
based on reports which the operstors claim
to have received from many sources that
the families ot many strikers are In want.
An attempt will probably be made to start
at least three washerles In the Wyoming
district tomorrow. One operator said tonight
that the number of washerles now in
operation was greater than at any time
ince the strike began and that there waa
only one step between operating a washery
nd a colliery. Sooner or later he thought
an attempt would be made to etart up a
The Wllkeabarre lace mill, which haa
been Idle for ten days, will resume work
tomorrow. The mill employs 1,100 hands,
mostly girls. Because the superintendent
would not discharge five girls whose fathers
and brother were working as nonunion
men In the mines, the other employes quit
work. Tbe superintendent ot the mill then
announced that there would be no work
until further notice. Last night he was
waited on by a committee from the Central
Labor union, and a temporary agreement
reached by which all hands will return to
work Tuesday. In the meantime It Is
thought a permanent settlement will be

The Union Paciflo machinists' strike

of Machinists at Washington will be Issued
early this morning by Vice President T. L.
Wilson, who, with Vice President W. Web

will assume direction of the strike. Th

This strike order will, as has been stated.

Officials of the road say this ts too hlrh.
that the strikers have greatly exaggerated
the figures. Neither side, however, will
n-nl'r a definite statement aa to the exact
ru nl,rr idle until tonight or Tuesday.
J ho machinists and boilermakera. who are
united In this strike, profess to be serenely
confident of victory. The company officials
likewise still maintain their faith In th
success of the Union Paciflc'a cause. Th
key to the situation seems to be held by
the trainmen. Their action, whatever It
may be. I regarded aa the determining
factor. It is believed that unless th
striker's can tie up the operating depart

Talk for Engine Men.
A representative of the firemen and en
gineers was interviewed Sunday by a re
porter for The Ba upon the attitude of
the brotherhoods. '.
"So far we have not considered th
matter. In fart, wa hav nM utti. .
tention to the strike movement, as w
have not felt that w wre directly con
cerned, but now things have .reached that
stage .where we are compelled to view the
situation with seriousness." he said.
"There has been no talk among us at
any of our meetings aa to what the firemen
and engineers ought to do. We hop
there will be no occasion for any. But ol
course we may have a part to perform
before the strike is settled. If tb en
tire system Is tied up In the shop and'
the machinists and boilermakera call on
us to co-operate In a sympathetic strike.
It will have a strong Influence upon us;
there is no denying that fact. Or It th
shop are emptied of union men and the
company fills In with "scab" boilermakera
and machinists, it might be necessary for
the brotherhoods of both the firemen and
engineers to take action. There 1 no
question but that these things would hav
a vital Influence upon us, but how great
I cannot and would not say.
Engineers and Firemen Satisfied.
"As I said before, we do not want any
trouble and hope It will not be necessary
for us to get Into this fight. We hav no
provocation among ourselves to tak the
Initiative. We are working under th best
scale we ever had. At our conference
with the officials soma months ago we had
everything granted us that we could ask
for. An agreement was drawn up and
signed which was made operative for on
year, beginning the first of last January,
ao of course we are under that agreement
yet and have no desire or Inclination to
break faith with our employers. W do
not believe there Is anything we could ask
for that would benefit our own Interests,
and consequently we have nothing to ask.
We are perfectly satisfied.
"I really look for something to drop in
this strike matter by Monday night. It
may be that within a day or two then w
could speak with precision aa to our own
position. We would not, however, hav tb
power ot ourselves to Join tbe other men
In a sympathetic strlks even If we had any
such desire, for the provisions of our con
stitution make It obligatory upon us to sub
mit to the order of our grand lodge officers
la such case.
Perfect Harmony with Company,
"I want to repeat before you go that th
firemen and engineer are In perfect har
mony with tbe company, have no cause of
their own for discord and hope that they
will not be drawn Into this strike."
Asked If the machinist would appeal to
the engineers and firemen for their co
operation in order to make the strike ef
fective. Vice President Wilson said:
"No railroad can operate without ma
chinists and bollermakeri."
"Then you mean, do you, that th Union
Pacific will be unable to get machinists and
bollermskers outslds of tb union?" waa
"That's exactly th proposition." h re
plied. ! "Well, do you think you win call on
tbe englneera and firemen for help?" he
was again asked.
"To be frank with you, I do not beltev
It will be necessary. Those matter will
simply shape themselves by natural conse
quences. We have nothing to do with th
trainmen nor wish to Interfere with their
sffalrs, but I repeat tbat no road can carry
on Its traffic affair without bollermskers
or machinists." And then with a meaning
twinkle of his eye be added:
"I think tbe railroad company will And
out that machinists and boilermakera ro,
very essential In their business."
Coarse of Car Builders.
There has been mote or less speculation
among ths str'ker as to the probabl
course ot the car builders. By som It Is
maintained that th car builders may
depended on to affiliate with the strikers.
