tunning at the rate of thirty-five ..llles en I

one mile east of Blue river, which Is the
eastern limit of this city. The train,
which left Chlearo at it o'clock lat night
and was due here at 10:30 this morning,
is a through train running octween Chi
cago and Bnn Francisco. It was running
at a higher spued than usual today, being
ten or fUteen minutes behind Its schedule.
The wreck occurred at what railroad m
call the "Rock -creek cut." on a curve.

outright or badly hurt. The cars which
left the track were a mall car, a baggage
and express car, the smoking car, a chulr
car and a tourist sleeping car. Three tourist
sleepers, two standard Pullmans and the
dining car remained on the track.
The Smoking car split the baggage car
ahead of It Just below the floor line, and
the baggage ear when It stopped was on
top of what was left of the smoking car.
The othr derailed cars were Jammed
against the rocks of the bluff, except the
splintered fragments of the smoker.
None of the passengers In the cars which
remained on the track were hurt.
Work of Belief.
Relief trains with physicians and Bur
geons left this city for the scene of the
wreck aa soon as possible. Pending the
arrival of the relief trains the able-bodied
passengers and trainmen did all they could
to care for the dead and alleviate J-he dis
tress of the injured . Their effort wei v
handicapped by a cold rain Which ' fell
steadily and added to the gloom of the
situation. The passengers worked heroic
ally under dlfneultles, and when the doc
tors arrived most of the dead and injured
had been taken out of the wreckage. In
many instances it was necessary to ,dlg
under (he debits to extricate the unfor
tunate victims. One man in the smoker
had been pinioned against a hot stove,
with one foot in the stove, suffering untold
agony as his foot was slowly burned by
live coals. This' was one of the many
agonizing scenes witnessed by the rescuers.
The injured were given emergency treat
ment at the scene of the' wreck and later
brought to hospitals In this city, where It
Is reported tonight that all will recover.
The dead were taken In charge by the
county coroner and brought to local

WASHINGTON. Oct. 30.-(Speclal Tele
gram.) J. A. Market of Omaha, who was
recently awarded a large contract for
feeding the people employed on the Panama
canal which called for the expenditure of
many millions of dollars In the Panama
canal sone and which later was cancelled,
Is In Washington, presumably preparing to
establish the commissariat for a railroad
to be built In Virginia. This proposed new
railroad seems to be of rather mysterious
origin, but It will be built, so it Is said.
Mr. Market stated that he has no knowl
edge of the Interests back of this new
enterprise, nor does he care, his business
at present being tnfurnish men and food
for railroad projects anywhere throughout
the United States.

be overcome. After six months on the

NEW YORK, Oct 30.-Charlea E. Hughes,

prosecution as a result of the Insurance
investigation. That statement was prompted
by District Attorney Jerome's announce

he would ask for funds to employ Mr.
Hughes to prosecute any Insurance men
found guilty of a crime.

We, Nicholas II, by the grace of Ood.
emperor and autocrat of all the Russia,
grnnd duke of Finland, etc., declare to all
our faithful suhjerts that the trouble and
agitation in our capitals and in numerous
places fill our heart witi, excessive pain
The .happiness of the Russian sovereign
Is Indlssolubly bound up with tho happi
ness of our people, and the sorrow of our
people Is the sorrow of the sovereign.
From tho present disorders may arise
great national disruption. They menace
the Integrity and unity of our empire.
The supreme duty Imposed upon us by
our sovereign office requires tis to efface
ourself and to URe all tho force and reason
at our command to h.isten In securing the
unity and co-ordination of the powers of
the central government and to assure the
success of measures for pacification of all
circles of public life, which are essential
to the well being of our people.
We, therefore, direct our government to
carry out our Inflexible will In the follow.
"First To extend to the population the
Immutable foundations of civic liberty,
based on the real inviolability of person,
freedom of conscience, speech, union and
"Second Without suspending the already
ordered elections to the stato douina, to
Invite the participation In tho douma so

ST. PETERSBURG, Oct. SO-MidnlghU
"1 um sure the American eople. who un
derstand what freedom In, and the Ameri
can press, which voices the wishes of the
I people, will rejoice with the friendly Rus
sian nation at this moment, when the Itus
rton people have received 'from his Im
perial majesty the promises and the guar
antees of freedom and wilt Join in the
hope that the Russian people wllf wisely
aid In the realization of those liberties by
co-operating with the government for thoir
peaceful introductkn. Only thus will It
be possible to secure tho full benefits of
the freedom conferred upon the people."
Count Witte, Russia's first premier, to
night sent the above message to the Ameri
can people through the Associated Press.
End of the Autocracy.
He had Juat arrived at his residence on
Kamnienenrovrov prospect from Peterhof,
where, in the Alexander palace., the em
peror two hours before had given his final
apprpval to a manifesto and to a program
which will forever end the rule of ab
solutism exercised by him and his Romanoff
ancestors for 300 years.
A simple perusal of the manifesto shows
how complete Is the emperor's abdication of
bis autocratic power. The very style of
the document Is clear and direct and de
void of tho verbose, vague and bombastic
phraseology which heretofore has charac
terized his majesty's manifestos. It not
only betrays real authorship, but shows
that the emperor at last has Irrevocably
bowed to the Inevitable. He does not even
conceal the fact that the discontent and
agitation of his subjects has driven nun to
take the step and practically yields every
thing civil liberty, the Inviolability of per
son and lltx-rty of conscience, speech and
assembly. He not only converts the farcical
Imperial douina, with only consultative
power, Into an absolute legislative assembly
without the asHint of which no measure
shall become law and before which all gov
ernmental authorities must answer, but
promises eventually universal suffrage.
The title. "Autocrat of all the Rusci.is,"
with which the manifesto begins, now takes
its place with' the title of "King of Jeru
salem," borne by the king of Spain and the
emperor of Austria, and with other obsolete
titles of European sovereigns.
J. Plerpont Morgan, Jr.. and George W.
Perkins were with Finance Minister Kokov
soff when the hitter received the news. It
was a drumatlc moment. The minister was
called to the telephone and when ho re
