particulars of the railroad accident last
night are that the collision occurred at
a point on the lino of the Baltlmoro and
Philadelphia railroad about four tulles
south of where tho Chesapeake and Ohio
canal crosses the track by the Viaduct
road. At this point Is a curve with a
pretty steep embankment on one side
nnd a hill on the other tide. The pas-
senger train which was coming north
was passing under tho arch or the via-
duct and met tho freight train Just at
the northern entrance of the arch. The
engines on mo together w Ith such a shock
that heavy pieces of Iron from both
were thrown 20 or 30 fert up the side of
tho hill and both rolled on the Inner
side side of the curve nnd tho mallear
of the passenger train was telescoped on
the tender of the engine In front of It.
None of the other cars left the track.
Both engineers and firemen nnd the con-
ductor of the passenger train were
killed and the mall nirent and several
passengers were slightly Injured. The
tlrrman of the freight Jumped a moment
before the collision and escaped unin-
jured 'the killed are: George Freer
engineer on the freight train; Tom Dnr-
ley llreman on tho passenger; Hew
Augur conductor on the passenger and
Bruce engineer on the passenger. The
name nt I he mall agent could not be
learned. None of tho passengers
were seriously Injured. All of them
were taken back to Alexandria.
The safe or the express car had been
opened shortly before the accident and
the flames made such headway that the

COL. BELKNAP'S PET SCHEME.
A Heply to His Views on tho Gran-
ite Paving question.
Editor Pin Antonio Mctiti
In your Issue of yesterday February
20 1 was tnoro than amused at reading
an article headed "Texas Granite Col-
onel Belknsp's Scheme to Pave our
Streets An Everlasting Street Pave-
ment at a Small Cost"
The Colonel says It would cost $3 per
surface yard. I will use his own figures
even at the low rate of $33 per 10 ton
which would make per surface yard at
8 Inches deep 10SO pounds nearly $2
freight alone. Now tbero would be
about 4 1 pieces 3x8x10 In each square
yard. What would It cost to quarry
them and shape them In this form the
loading the unloading tho freight
from the station the digging Hie
laylngsandetcT In round llgures would
cot between $7 and JH per surface yard
and this would be tho best of 111 the
noise would he unsuffernble besides the
wenrnnd tear of vehicles destruction to
horses feet etc. "Colonel this is not
theory this Is practice from a practical
man." 1 would advise Colonel Belknap
to go to New Orleans and uiount n dray
and tnke a ride along one of the granite
paved streets and f will guarantee he
will for ever say amen to granite pave-
ments. The Colonel has Jumped the
trick again In talking about the Nichol-
son pavement. He goes away down to
New York where the Nicholson pave-
ment proved a failure nnd a good ten-
son why. But who In the name of com
mon sense would talk about Nicholson
estimated all the way from $7000 to I pavements In San Antonio? Any person
S13.0UU. About a bushel of silver dol
lars were taken out of the wreck being
badly burned and many more were
melted Into solid chunks. The loss to
the railrpad company Is estimated nt
$20.1X10. The postal ofllclals say the
collision caused the largest lossofmnll
matters or which there is any record In
the department. The lire which re-
sulted troin the collision destroyed 13
through registered mall pouches com-
ing from New Orleans Mobile ami other
points In the South nnd destined for
Washington New York nnd Eastern
cities. These pouches are known to
havo contained valuables and money
but to whnt amount can not be yet ascer-
tained. The lire alio destroyed 100
sacks of ordlnnry mail matter a heavy
miscellaneous mall and 1MI registered
letters tnkenfor delivery along the line
and not enclosed In pouches. The or-
dinary mail Inst Is supposed to have
come from Texas Mississippi and other
Southern States. It is impossible an yet
to say where the blame for the disaster
rests as all who could throw any light
on the matter are dead or to badly in-
jured that the facts cannot be ascer-
FOUND AT LAST.

ing strikingly new has been developed
regarding the Eadjshlp railway scheme.
When asked yesterday whnt progress
he was making Captain Ends replied
that he had nothing tangible for publi
cation but every Indication pointed to
his securing modifications to the concei
lion necessary to make It operative and
secure the building ot the railway. This
statement ! bornv out by Inquiry at tho
palace where the enterprise Is regarded
with arowlnc rnvor. and I lie onlnlon Is
freely expressed that Captain Ends will
get what he wants. The btnrtlliig news
comes from Morclla that Lulz Gonzales
editor or Explorntors whose recent ar-
rest nnd subsequent rolense by the Gov-
ernment caused so much excitement
was assassinated on Tuesday. Five sol-
diers In civilians dress shot him on the
streets. They escaped. He lived but a
few minutes. A telegram from Mata-
moros published In to-day's Dlaro. olll-

that tlie Mexican forces have crossed

flict between Americans and Mexicans
Is without foundation. Tho truth is
that several bands of outlaws were
chased by Mexican soldiers and some

A Furore created at the Turner
An linmensn anilleneit Kembled at
Turner hall last night to bear Ambrose
Thomas' opera Mlgnon and at the con
clusion of the performance a unanimous
verdict of approval was rendered by the
critical audience. The boards of the
paltry Turner hall never has had so
much Intent nt one time on them as last
evening when Miss Emma Abbott played
Mlgnon Miss Laura Bellini as Flllna
and Miss Lizzie Annnndale Frederick.
Emma Abbott was encored In several
numbers particularly in the -'cabinet tie
toilette" scene. Miss Laura Bellini's
magnlllcent voice created n profound
Impression and thesaino honor that was
acceded to Miss Abbott was demanded
of this nrtlst. Miss Ar.nnndale ns Fred-
erick had no particular opportunity to
display her ability. In the second
net a pleasing Incident occurred
by Miss Aniiandale being the recipient
or a beautiful basket of elegant flowers
chastlly arranged. Embedded In their
fragrance was the following note:
Please accept this alight token of re-
gard In reniembrnnce of the telegraphers'
strike or 'SJ. (Signed)
TfcLEdiui'iiKiu or San Antonio.
Tho assistance Miss Annandnle ren-
dered In giving concertu for the benefit
of the distressed operators during that
memnrablo strike Is gratefully remem-
bered by the participants of those bene-
fits. As an evidence ofhernppreclaiion
of the floral" tribute tlie lady carried
the basket during the third net. Floral
marks of approval were also tendered
Miss Abbott. The male portion of the
cast was ably sustained by William
Castle Walter Allen William Broder-
Ick Kobert Ward and Thomas Guise
and the choruses were splendidly
rendered. This afternoon "II Trova-
tore" is being given and this evening
Soinnainbuln will be given with a very-
strong cast. Emma Abbott appearing In
her cliarmlnir role of Amina. The mu
sic of somnambuln la light and full of
melody: the plot Is very unique nnu
pleasing and the great sleep walking
scene Is dramatically very startling and
vocally It abounds in beautllul and daz-
zling runs scales and cadences. No
opem In tho Abbutt repertoire Is more
popular than Soinnanibula.and It Is Em-
ma Abbott's favorite role.
Sunday night a special performance
will be given nt popular prices. The
brilliant Spanish opera by lllzet of Car-
men will be performed In Its entirety.
All tbe dashing choruses the brtllinut
