ON THE NEGfiO.
SPEECH OF SENATOR WALTHALL OP
MISSISSIPPI OX THE DANGERS
OF NEGRO DOMINATION.
THE OUTEAGE AT ABERDEEN
.ervesas a Handle for Chandler and His
Crowd Senator Reagan In
Defense of the South.
Washington January 27. The resolu-
tion hcretofoie offered by SenatorJChandler
calling upon the attorney general for the
report of the United States marshal for the
northern district of Mississippi concerning
the maltreatment of JHenry J. Faunce at
Aberdeen Miss. was taken up for consid-
eration. Senator Walthall addressed the'senate. It
could not be possibly pretended he
thought that congress had any jurisdic-
tion of the subject. It had been referred
to by the distinguished senator from
Kansas (Senator Ingalls) last Thursday
in his (Senator Walthall's) absence but
from reading the report of the. senator's
remarks he saw that he had com-
mented on the hanging in effigy of
Secretary Proctor at Aberdeen and one ot
the most brutal and outrageous assaults
committed on the citizen named in the
resolution. From what he (Mr. Walthall)
had heard of the affair he felt warranted in
saying it was simply the wanton conduct
of a few parsons and was disapproved by
the community m which it occurred.
He knew that community intimately
but he had never before heard of the per-
sons concerned in the outrage. Speaking
for himself and representing the senti-
ment of the people all over Mississippi
and of the South he condemned unquali-
fiedly and unreservedly that outrage en
vhe secretary of war and on the citizen
named in the resolution. He felt that the
npnnlp nf t he United States would not
hold an entire community responsibln for
the action ota tew persons.
Passing from that subject Mr. Walthall
nri.pppdwl to discuss the Question of Fed
eral interference in state elections. He
agreed with Mr. Ingalls that the race ques-
tion was the most formidable and porten
trvui: Dvsr nnxipntpil tn a free people tor so

could apply that promised any practical

less the laws of nature could be reversed by

Southern states. Its professed purpose was

TERRIBLE AND FATAL ACCIDENT TO
PASSENGER TRAIN AT CARMEL
SIX PEESONS KILLED OUTEIGHT.
Four Coaches Precipitated to the Bottom
of a Cut and the Ladles' Car
Indianapolis lnd. January 27. Passen
ger train No. 1 on the Monon route which
left Chicago Sunday night at 11:45 was
wrecked this morning at 7 :50 a mile above
Carmel village sixteen miles north of this
city. The train was moving at a rapid rate
and was approaching the long trestle across
Wilkerson creek when the tender jumped
the track. The engineer reversed his en-
gine but before the air brakes could check
the speed of the train the locomotive aud
baggage car cleared the trestle but the four
coaches attached went over into the creek.
The ladies' coach immediately caught
fire and in an incredibly short time was'
reduced to ashes. Fortunately for the oc-
cupants of this train No. 2 which left this
city for Chicago at 7:30 had been ordered
to meet train No. 1 at Carmel and as
soon as word of the wreck was received the
passengers hurried to the scene and went
earnestly to work rescuing the occupants
of the burning cars.
A horrible sight met their eyes. In plain
view of all were two boys aud a woman.
All were dead but their bodies were being
rapidly consumed The arm of one pro
jected through the side of the car and could
be touched by those on the outside but the
opening was not large enough to draw the
body through. Immediately in front of
this body was a lady who got on at Frank-
fort and is as vet unidentitied. Her body
was enveloped in the flames but there was
no possible way to get ner out oi tne Dura-
Across from this lady was Mrs. Eubanks
of Broad Ripple Ind. Her head was hor-
ribly crushed. A brakeman and a pas-
senger seized her by the arms and by a
desperate effort pulled her body through

STATEMENT OF A PASSENGER.
W. J. Collius. of Indianapolis a passen
ger said t The first intimation of anything
unusual was the swaying of the cars fol
lowed by the front end of the sleeper going
over tne emoanKinent. mere was acrasu
and a shock that threw the passengers
from one end of the car to the other out
of one berth into another and demolishing
everything in the car.
A gentleman kicked out a window
through which a number made their exit.
others seeing that there was no immediate
danger to those in the sleeper dressed
themselves and then sought the open air.
On emerging from the sleeier it was dis
covered that the coach immediately in
frnnt had been badlv wrecked because in
leaving the bridge the front end struck the
embankment approach completely demol-
ishing that end of the car and overturning
the stove in which a brisk fire was burning.
The car immediately took lire the flames
spreading with great rapidity and in a
moment enveloted the entire structure.
Those who had escaped from the other
coaches and were able to work began assist
ing those in the burning coaches to free
themselves. The first prsons taken out were
two ladies-both dead. Then Mrs. Oldham
and little boy of Sheridan.
Two other children of this lady were still
vjra the car and the mother noting this fact
and although badly injured made a des-
perate etl'ort to return to the burning coach.
Being dissuaded in this she appealed to the
bystanders to rescue her boys clasping her
youngest in her arms she exclaimed :
"Thank God I have you left-but I have
two other children in that fire. God be
merciiul." Then turning to the passengers
she urged them to rescue her burning chil-
dren. By this time the train from the south ar-
rived and the passengers fell to work
urged on by the I ran tic appeals of the dy-
ing and injured to give them relief. Every
one who could worked with a will. Axes
were procured and a determined effort
made to get the dead and dying out but
their efforts proved futile as the flames
spread so rapidlj that the work had to be
abandoned iu a few minutes. ;
There was a scene of the wildest con-
fusion. The deck of the car was com-
pletely demolished ties twisted and broken
the piles splintered and broken off' and the
cars so badly wrecked that no parts of
them can even be utilized.
As to the cause of the wreck Mr. Col-
lins says he is positive it was due to

on a curve 150 feet lrom the bridge. The
section foreman who reached the scene
half an hour after the wreck and explained
that the outside of the curve had been too
low and he had elevated it one inch by
shimming it up temporarily. Stone had
been hauled there for the purpose of rais-
ing the outside of the curve in the usual
way but he had not had time to use them
but considered it necessary to do some-
thing and the only thing to be done at the
time was to use shims. The sole cause of
the accident was tne condition of the track
on the curve it being sticky clay destitute
of ballast. .
A Plea for the Trusts.
Chicago III. January 28. George C.
Gibson secretary of the great whisky ring
is in the city. When asked why the trust
was about to incorporate under Illinois
laws he said: "We are going to form a
corporation sanctioned by the laws of the
state because it will aid us in the transac-
tion of business. There are many advan-
tages to be gained by forming a trust and
all trusts are beneficial not only to the pro-
ducers who become parties to the organiza-
tion but to the people who buy the goods.
"In this country there is a clamor against
trusts for what reason no one can tell.
Men who go into trusts are condemned and
villifled by the common people and politi-
cians and denounced are caricatured by
newspapers. Moved by this legislatures
have passed laws aimed directly against
trusts and have endeavored to force them
't.nrlisnlve. Every trust lowers prices.

The Effect of Railway Rates on the Beef
Business Practical Statements
Bearing; on the Question
Washington. January 28. The Vest
committee.Jengaged in the investigation of
questions in regard to the beef industry
resumed its session this morning and ex-
amined a number of railroad men.
John B. Dutcher general live stock
agent of the New York Central railroad
testified that the Central used stock cars of
its own and did not use palace cattle cars.
The company had made experiments with
palace cars and from reports of shippers
he .did not believe there was any less
shrinkage in cattle from the use of palace
cars than from ordinary cars. On the con-
trary where shipped in patent cara cattle
were more braised and damaged than
when Bhipped in the ordinary way.
The New York Central at the very begin
ning had refused to pay mileage on cattle
cars and had never made it a practice. An
exception was made however in the case
of cars containing horses three fourths of a
cent per mile each way being allowed.
On dressed Deei reirigerator cars me uuiu-
pany also allowed three-fourths of a cent a
mile the rate having been cut down from
one cent. When the Trunk Line associa
tion aereed not to nav mileage any longer
on palace cattle cars the roads were still
allowed to pay mileage; on dressed beef.

reason tne truns: lines association reiuseu

the United States United States bonds in
excess of $1000 as security for their circula-

keep on deposit or deposit the
