ent battleship In commission In the Ameri
can navy Is but Vt feet long, with a normal
displacement of 12,500 tons. The Brooklyn,
the largest armored cruiser In the United
States navy, when the war with Spain
was fought. Is but 1.215 tons, while the
largest battleship In the navy In 1898 had
a displacement of but 11, ITS. These com
paratlve figures will give some idea, of the
site of the West Virginia and Its class.
Within the coming year two battleships of
ls.OOO tons displacement will be placed In
rommlsslon, but even these will not have
the extreme length of the Wei( Virginia.
To man the West Virginia requires a
complement of forty-one officers and 7S7
bluejackets. Special care has been given
In the construction of the armored cruisers
of this class to provide for ths comfort of
the enlisted men. The galleys are of the
most modern and approved type and baker
ies have been Installed which Insure a fresh
supply of bread dally.
The West Virginia carries a main battery '
it four 1-Inch guns and fourteen 6-Inch guns
af the rapid fire type, which Is supple
mented by a strong array of smaller guns
for a Secondary battery. It also Is pro
vided with two torpedo tubes.
As the West Virginia Is fitted as a flag
ship, it Is admirably adapted to the use
of the president and the spacious quarters
provided for the admiral will Insure the
comfort of the president on his homeward
Journey. These quarters are ' located In
the extreme afterpart of the vessel. The
admiral's cabin Is fifteen feet wide and
tweny-slx feet In length, extending from
one side of the ship to the other. This Is
used as the dining room and In It there
Is a dining table, sideboard and dining
chairs, all of mahogany, besides a number
of large easy chairs. There Is but little
woodwork aside from the doors and furni
ture. The exposed steet has been treated
to a coat of white enamel, which, with
curtains of green velour, hung on polished
brass rods at all doors and air ports, and
rugs of American make en the floors, pro
duces a harmonious effect. Adjoining the
admiral's cabin Is the pantry and the ad
miral's office. The cabin aft may be em
ployed as a lounging room. The hangings
here are of green velour and tables cov
ered with green billiard cloth, carry out the
general color scheme. (
' The West Virginia Is commanded by
Captain C. H. Arnold, while Rear Admiral
Brownson, commanding the division of

and No. 12, which departed from Kansas
City at 6:30 last evening. Four persons
were killed and between fifteen and twenty
injured, none fatally. The dead:

The cause of tne accident is now laid to
the train dispatcher's office.
When the engineer of No. 11 appeared at
Fairfield he was handed the following or
der: "Run forty minutes late to Eldon."
The fireman of No. 12 declares that they
had clearance orders from Eldon and that
the blame for the wreck was In the issu
ance of them from the dispatcher's office.
At the time of the accident the trains
were running at the rate of about thirty
miles an hour. Both engines, which were
of the large Pacific type, were demolished
by the impact, which was terrific. Four
ears of No. 12 were derailed and seven
damaged and most of the injured were on
this train. All of the killed were on No. 11.
which also was badly damaged.
A relief train with physicians was sent
to the scene from Eldon and the injured
were removed to the latter point. Traffic
was tied up for nearly twelve hours. Sev
eral of the Injured were able to continue
their Journey and these with the other
passengers were detoured over the Chicago,
Milwaukee and Bt. Paul tracks by way of
Ottumwa and Eldon.
Company Blames Operator.
CHICAGO, Oct. 26. An official statement
Issued by the Rock Island road gives the
number of dead as four and places the
number of Injured at from twenty-five to
thirty. Present official information leads
to the conclusion that the collision was
caused by a failure of the operator a Fair
field to deliver an order for No. 11, west
bound, to meet No. 12, eaatbound, ut Fair
field. . . .
Both locomotives were demolished, four
oars of No. 12 derailed and seven dam
aged. The damage to No.. 11 has not been
reported, but all the killed were on this
train, including an unidentified tramp .who
was stealing a ride on the . front plat
form of the baggage car. Those injured
were nearly all on No. 12.
A relief train with seven physicians was
sent to Fairfield from Eldon. Passengers
on No. 12 able to travel were sent over
the Chicago, Milwaukee A St. Paul railway
part of the way to Washington, la., and
put aboard Rock Island train No. 44, bound
for El Paso, Tex. A train to continue
No. ll's journey west was made up, as
the track, it was expected, would be clear
by 1 p. m. Trainmaster Kennelly was
among the Injured.

heretofore paid by hlin. He also allegea
the fact to be that Mrs. Saunders Is sup
porting her father, mother and little brother
out of the SIM monthly allowance made her

Stelnway hall as " meeting ruled by two

After the appointment of .the credentials
committee and a . discussion of the best
way to collect tmj credentials of the dele
gates, th Btudc baker hall meeting ad
journed until 1 o'clock. .
Dunne Welrataes Rearalare.
At Stelnway hall, meanwhile, Mayor
Dunne, who was rereatly elected to office
aa a democrat, warmly welcomed the dele
gales who . signed the Roosevelt pledge.
The mayor said:
There Is no more important ouestlon be
fore the country today than railroad rates.
There are three different classes who view
this railroad rate question from different
points of view. One class believes a rail
road should be run like a grocery and
charge one customer $1 a pound and an
other C cents a pound. Another clans ap
proves President Roosevelt's plan for the
governmental regulation of railroad rates.
The third class, which' Is numerically In
creasing each year, believes that the proper
solution is for the government to own and
operate the railroads. If they do not, the
railroads will control the government. But
I will not Impress upon, you my. personal
views on this question. Chicago Is proud
to have you as her guests. If you come
back in several -years I will give you a
ride in municipal street cars.
At present the only vehicles the city owns
are patrol wagons, and I know that you do
not want to ride In them. Toil look like
good peaceful citizens, and 1 sincerely hope
Vour deliberations will be quiet and orderly,
ou must not fight because it is against
the city ordinances. , . .
E.' T. Campbell of Ohio responded to
Mayor Dunne's address of welcome.
"It is unfortunate that the railroad In
terests attempted to Interfere with this
convention," said Mr. Campbell. "It is a
mistake to attempt to combat public opin
ion. We are here to indorse President
Roof evclt's plan 6f governmental regula
tion of railroad rates. I am tn favor of
going even further than the president, but
I am also heartily In favor of supporting
Parry Lost la Indiana.
John W. Kern, representing the Indian
apolis Commercial association, was the next
speaker. He explained that D. M. Parry
Is a member of the Indiana organisation
and that after a sharp contest Mr. Parry's
efforts to' Instruct the delegates against
the Roosevelt rate regulation plan were de
feated by a vote of 10 to'l.
After a speech by former Governor Van
Bant of Minnesota, the convention adjourned
until 2 o'clock.
The so-called "antl" convention recon
vened at i o'clock In the afternoon In Stude
baker hall, and the "regular" convention
met an hour later in Stelnway hall.
Hashes Elected President.
While the Studebaker hall meeting was In
session the Stelnway hall convention per
fected organization by the election of the
Chairman W. K. Hughes of Colorado.
Vice Chairman John W. Kern of Indiana,
Secretary P. E. Goodrich of Indiana.
Assistant Secretary-r-G.. A. Schroeder of
Wisconsin. . . , . i
The report. of the committee on credentials
was read and approved and all delegates In
the hall were seated, .
Chairman Hughes discussed the .presi
dent's position as to railroad rates, saying:
This is what the people we represent
want. What the people of the great west
want and what We shall earnestly and per
sistently demand..' The people of the west
are not unmlndfuJt-of what the railroads
have done for them,' They have brought the
comforts, even the'Kixurles of life to errery
door. .. They hastened the .development of
the country: made the wheels go faster,' as
it were. The'lasfc twenty-five years have
brought a great change.. In this time about
all the public utilities o( the country trans-
Rortatlon, Insuranc e, food, light aha water
ave passed Into tne hands of corporations.
These soulless creations of modern law can
hold about all that is valuable now and hold
It with a grip that death never relaxes. I
think I can truthfully say to you today
that unless you put the railroads under
state and federal control, neither your
wealth nor well being will, be advsnced In
this generation not in the next. Now this
question is right up to you. We -want, In
my opinion, to here draft and pass strong
resolutions upon-this subject, to appoint
committees from every state ' represented
here tn get right after the senators from
their respective states with the proceedings
of this meeting. If they agree with the
president we want to know it; If they are
with the corporations we want to know it.
Among those appointed on. the committee
of resolutions were J. H. Call of California,
8. H. Cowan . of Texas, H. A. Holmes of
Kansas and . former Governor Larrabee of
,At this point it was learned that there
had been no invocation. The convention felt
the necessity of one, but no minister was
present, whereupon Captain Joseph Farley
of Dallas, Tex., 'mounted ths platform and
delivered a prayer asking Divine aid ln
fighting the rate evil.
Reply ta "Antl" Comsaaalcatlaa.
A communication was then received from
the other railroad advocates at Studebaker
hall saying it was "the convention," and
asking the "regulars" to Join, with them.
This caused considerable- discussion and
the "enemy" was hotly denounced by JL W.
Call of California and others.
A committee was appointed to reply to
the communication after which a resolu
tion introduced by J. W. Kern of Indian
spoils was adopted under suspension of
the rules. It is as follows:
Resolved, That the so-called convention
assembled in fcttudebaker hall for the pur
pose of aiding the railroad companies ro
defeat the efforts of President Roosevelt In
behalf of the people has assembled without
authority of this association, but fairly rep
resents the corporate forces under the di
rection of which It is in session.
Second, that Its statement-to 4he effect
that any duly accredited delegates to this
convention are in anenuance upon tne eiuuo-
baker hall railroad convention is absurd
and false. The delegates to this convention
are here In session, enthusiastic in their

The convention then adjourned until to
' Proeeedlaaa of the "Anils."
The first business at the Studebaker hall
convention In the afternoon was the read
ing of the report of the committee on
The roll call of the delegates whose cre
dentials Were accepted by the committee
showed that 433 delegates were In attend
ance at the convention in the afternoon.
Several times during the roll call applause
was caused by reading names of delegates
who are said to have left the "regular"
convention for the "rump" meeting.
Amid the cheers and applause of the con
vention a resolution classing the action of
the "regulars" In refusing admission to the
"rump" delegates to Btelnway hall as un
American was passed.
As a bit of humor, the resolution asked
the appointment of a committee to extend
an Invitation to the "regulars" to attend
the convention at Studebaker hall.
After the recess steps were taken to
make the organisation permanent. The
nominations for the permanent officers were
made by W. C. Perry of Kansas City, and
were passed without opposition.
N. W. McCioud of Pennsylvania was
chosen chairman and O. X. Wendellng of
California one of the rice presidents.
Trre Hesolntlons Referred.
After the appointment of other commit
tees. Delegate Thurber of New York of
fered a resolution that the Interstate Com
merce act be amended so as to class pri
vate car lines and terminal railroad en
gaged in interstate commerce as common
carriers and subject to the Interstate com
merce act. It was referred to the com
mittee on resolutions.
A resolution was then introduced prais
ing President Roosevelt .for his assistance
In the recent peace negotiations between
Russia and Japan. The . resolution also
expressed an appreciation of the Intentions
of the president in attempting to secure
a settlement of the rate regulaton ques
tion, and expressed an opinion of the views
of members of the convention on the sub
ject D. M. Parry States His Position.
D. M. Parry, the leader of the delegates,
then made his speech. ,
In part, he said:
I refuse to believe that the government
rate making proposition reflect the real
sentiment of the great majority of the
shippers of this country, for to my mind
to believe such a thing is to assert that
the shippers have combined their forces
for the purpose of tyrannising over the
railroads and depriving railroad capital
from reaping the profits which under the
free Institutions of this country it is en
titled. Rather do I prefer to believe that
this crusade to endow a political commis
sion with a socialistic and ciar-llke power
to fix transportation prices Is what Is pop
ularly and very aptly termed a hot air
movements, fathered In the main by profes
sional political agitators and men who have
private reasons of their own for fighting
the railroads. I believe that as the ship
pers come to consider this question they
are more and more inclined to take the
view that government rate making Is an
Impractical and dangerous scheme, and at
least It must be given very earnest con
sideration before extending it their sup
port. I confidently believe that all fair-minded
men. If they give due s'udv o this question,
will come to the conclusion that the power
to make rates should continue to lodge
where It Is and that thereby the general
Interests of the country will be best sub
served, the rlKht of communities to enjoy
the advantages of copulation, wealth and
geographical location will be respected, the
less developed sections will not be at the
mercy of the more powerful sections, and
rates will on the whole, gradually decline,
while the services rendered by the carriers
will develop In efficiency.
After the speech an adjournment was
taken ,untll tomorrow.

Is to gain the strength that will come by a

Attention is called to the fact that whllo
the . reciprocity convention at Chicago In
August was a great success, yet the efforts
and the fight necessary to get the laws de
manded will be a stubborn one and may
last a number of years before the object is
attained. The campaign is now in the
hands of a committee.
At the meeting of the central committee
a resolution was adopted declaring that the
appropriation made by congress for experi
mental stations and use of the Bureau of
Animal Industry and for meat Inspection
absolutely insufficient for the live stock in
terests of the country. Because the live
stock industry Is threatened In many ways
by diseases which require careful scientific
Investigation and the welfare of the gen
eral public is believed to justify the dis
tribution of the burdens Involved in meat
inspection, senators and representatives
are asked to make ample provision at the
next session of congress.
O'REILLY SUGGESTS A CHANGE
Sargeoa General of Army Thinks
There Are Too Many Snr
WASHINGTON. Oct. 26. -Surgeon Gen
eral O'Reilly of the army has prepared a
statement showing there are three medical
officers with the same title he holds, which
has led to confusion, which might become
more serious In time of war. The title of
surgeon general of the army was bestowed
on the head of the medical department of
the army in U1S. In 1871 the chief of the
bureau . of surgery and medicine of the
navy was made surgeon general of the
navy. In lo the supervising surgeon of
ths marine hospital service was made sur
geon general of the marine hospital ser
vice. General O'Reilly says telegrams ad
dressed to ths "surgeon general" may be
sent to any of these officers. He thinks
that as his corps has had the title so much
longer than ths others It is entitled to
keep it. Legislation by congress would
be necessary to sffect the change.

Aasatear Dramatics at Chnrch.
The Young People's club of St. John's
chnrch presentttd a drama at Guild hall
last eight before a fair alxed audience of
friends and patrons of the church. The
play was given as a church benefit and ths
talent was entirely from among Its young
peuple. "Chevrons" was the name of the
drama, and deserves comment in that It
was an original play by R. T. King, one of
their young men. The action of the sketch
lies In the fact that Captain Wllderman is
tempted into a same of cards and loses
heavily. He steals his wife s Jewels to pay
his debt of honor and to conceal the theft
throws suspicion on a sergvant of his com.
pany, who la lifted to the rank of a hero.
