"This proposition," said Commissioner

of the government In administering to the

. " . ,
legal defenders they have engaged. Their
counsel consists nf Stout & Ball, Brome ft- ;
Burnett, Ourley & Woodrough of Omaha j
and Judge Crltea or Chadron. I
Case an Important One.
The case Is one of unusual Interest, owing ;
largely to the facthat It was the originnl
case of Richards '.and Comstock, over
which vUnltcd States Marshal Mathews and
I'nlted States District Attorney Baxter
were dismissed by the president.
Monday's session of ' court was devoted
largely to tho hearing of motions and dc.
murrers and the special assignment of trial
cases. The trial docket will not cumo from
the hands of the printer until about Novom-
ber IS). About sixty cases will be on the clr-
cult court docket and over, forty on the
uimnci court gqckpt.
The petit Jury will not be empanelled
until November 19. The, first case set for
trial In the district court will he that of
the I'nlted State against Richards, Com
stock and others, under the Indictment re
turned t the last term of the federal
s, charging them with conspiracy to
tid the government out of large areas
of public lands In Cherry and Sheridan
- orel PI en sf Defense.
As a preliminary proceeding to the Rich,
ards and Comstock cases, their attorneys
Monday afternoon entered a plea In abate
ment of the Indictment on the ground that
D.-. Tllden.'a Jury commissioner who asv
slated In the selection of the federal grand
Jury that indicted. Rich rd,'Cometoc and
the other defendants In. the case, was not
qualified to act -as Jnry commissioner from
tho fact that he wa riot appointed to that
Office by Judge Munger, but had merely
been appointed as a special commissioner
to assist the .I'nlted States dlstr.ct clerk
at a speclnr session of the federal courts
In 1T9 to draw the Jury panels; that he
was holding over as an appointee of Judge
Dundy since that, time and that his ap
pointment or jury commissioner expired f
with that special term of court in 18T3. I
United States' District Attorney Ooss and!
Special District Attorneys. R. Rush filed
ii bill of exceptions to the plea In abate-
ment, on the ground of Insufficient cause.
Ariimi-Kt of the Point.
Harry Brome and R. 8. Hall,
for Richards Comstock, and S. R. Rush
as attorney for- the government Brome
and Hall held that under the statute the
jury commissioner must be of the oppo -
j 5'ers the present - district clerk. R. C.
I Hoyt, -Is a democrat.' hence a Dr. Tllden
cItrk, and . for this reason their acts uro j
held to lv Invalid.
, Mr. Rush contended that Dr. Tllden had
since changed Ills political faith and .was
now a republican, which would make the
jury commission consist of two men of
opposite political faith. This proposition
the court refused to consider and It was
barrvd from the pleading In the bill of
exceptions. After further discussion the
court decided to overrule the exceptions
I "y the government attorneys to the
if''1 ln abatement, but permitted MY. Rush
to tile a, general demurrer to the pie.
So Law to Wnrrnnt It.
Mr. Bixme still insited that th appoiul-
ment of Dr. Tilde.n wa Illegal, or In fact
that he had not been appointed at all.
'There wa no existing law." he wild,
"where a man could b appointed to nn
office of this kind for- life, nor could he
' continue, to hold over in hln rtnninim.nt

One hundred and sixty-five person war
on tne train and cf tnesc. forty-seven were
either killed outright or wiro burned to
death In tho lire which broke out on tho
wreckage Immediately after tne. oollislon.
Tho n-f-uns of the dead probably will never

consumed or so badly burned that Identi
fication Is Impossible.
Thlity-clght people were Injured and

The disaster was caused by a blunder ot
some emplayo of the railroad company, hut
I Just whera ine blame Ilea has not been de
termined. The passenger train, which was
loaded with Hussion Jews, Servians and
Poles, all of them recent arrivals In thi
country, and bound Tor Chicago or place
In the northwest, wa tho econd section of
a through train from Baltimore. The cn-
I glnetr of the freight train No. OC, on In
j trurtlons received at Mc-fool, waited at
a siding ut Babcock, Ind, to allow the im
migrant train to pass.
I'roiwiilr tue of Disaster.
One lenort is that the engineer of 111
freight tr,i;n had not been itiiornicd that
the passeiinier train was running in twj
sections, 'inc other Is tnat tne Itrst section
of tne pa.eiigi-r train earned no lignts or

almost Immediately In the wreckage, and
although a number of the Injured were
saved by the desperate efforts of tho train
crew and surviving passengers, the great' r
part of those who were pinned down in
the debris were burned to death. Tha

report of the catastrophe was received
scenes at the Baltimore St Ohio depot wer
harrowing. Men were there who had com
to this country to escape the massacre
in Rusria. und who. after months of hard
work had saved enough to pay the pas
sage of members of their families, and their
grief when the; became awure that pos-
train came in bearing th thirty-eight In
jured persons. It was with the greatest
difficulty that the police were able to opu
a passageway for the wounded. Several of
the foreigners became so excited that thy

uniforms led thein to believe they were em
ployed by th Baltimore &. Ohio road.
One Pnthetlo Incident.
Among the wounded who were brought to
the depot was Mrs. Auna Chyza, who had
come from Warsaw to meet her husband,
who has been working hero for lx months.
Mrs. Chyza Is blind, and her husband rec
ognized her as she was being curried
through through tho crowd by two police
men. Before the officers could atop him

but the police were Inexorable, and all
of the injured were taken to the hosjdttl,

Mild that It would be for some lime Im
