Twenty-five Emigrants Killed and
Detiuot, Michigan, Oct. to.—
The Pacific Express, which left iiere
on the Michigan Central railroad
forty minutes late, collided with a
switch-engine on the main track at
Jackson, at one o’clock a. m., which
telescoped the baggage and express
cars, pitching eleven coaches on top
of each other. The first coach was
filled with emigrants, most of whom
were killed or injured. Many of the
occupants of the other coaches were
also killed or injured. It is suppos-
ed 25 were killed and 30 wounded,
the majority being emigrants. Phy-
sicians and others are doing every-
thing possible to alleviate the suf-
fering!! of the wounded.
CAUSE OF THE ACCIDENT.
Detroit, Michigan, Oct. 10.—
The engineer and fireman of the ex-
press train were literally torn to
pieces, but the engineer and fireman
of theswitch engine escaped injury by
j jumping from the engine. Asnear as
can be ascertained, the accident was
1 caused by the switchman having
charge of making up freight trains
at Jackson Junction, occupying the
main track with the switch engine
and Caboose, lie understood the
express train was considerably be-
hind time. The express train had,
however, made up nearly all its lost
time. [Note—No Southern people
appear among the names of the kill-
ed or wounded ]
Detroit, Oct. 10.—At Jackson,
this afternoon, the Michigan Central
Rail Road officials examined the
different yard employees on duty
last night at the Air Line Junction
where the switch engine, with which
the Pacific express colided, was
placed on the track. It appears that
the men engaged in making up the
freight train at the east end of the
yard went to the telegraph office at
the junction and got information
that the Pacific express was nearly
fifty minutes behind time. Cladwell,
the yard master, reported to Jones,
the engineer of the switch engine,
that they had forty-five minutes of
the Pacific’s time in which to make
up the freight train, and it was this
work they were engaged in when
the collision occurred.
Dr. Towlo’s Experience at Dex- Shows That are
From Sherman Courier.
Dr. A. Towles, the man who some !
time ago was arrested in Whitesboro ,
for an assault on Major Diamond,
relates to us rather a thrilling adven- j
ture he claims to have had at Dex- I
ter, Cooke county, Wednesday mor- j
ning last. He states he had gone to j
Dexter to collect some monev due
him Cor practice he hail done there. I
While there he had taken occasion |
to denounce the shooting of Sears j
and the murder of Eckels. He had j
said it was wroitg to assassinate, |
and no one but a coward would be j
guilty of it, and while lie was not I
a particular friend of Sears, he had
no use for any man who would as- j
sassinate him. For this he was as- ;
saulted in the presence of the sheriff
by one J. McFarland and M. O. j
Phipps, and whipped one party in a !
fist fight. lie was then arrested, j
tried and acquitted. After this he j
was attacked by McFarland and j
one Jas. Bolton, a former depu- ,
ty sheriff, both of them armed j
with six-shooters, and but for Capt. I
Howard and a Mr. Dickeison, they
would have taken his life.
Three Monster Shows Combined
For weeks past we have been read-
ing accounts in all the great news-
papers ot New York, Philadelphia, I
Baltimore, Washington, Chicago, j
Cincinnati and St. Louis of the mag- !
nificence of the Great London Com- j
bined shows. The people of those j
cities, accustomed as they are to see
the finest exhibitions of the world,
weie fairly electrified with the won- 1
der ot the Gnat London Shows.
The great elect 1 ic light alone is an
imrilense show. Everything is on |
the grandest scale of gorgeoumess.
This monster show—or rather three
shows—--will exhibit in this city to-
morrow. The following is hut a
small sample of how the great papers
They ! speak of these exhibitions:

finally, succeeded in disarming them, j
Towles then took the advice of
friends, and got out of town. Horv- f
aid had Towles to go over to Dick- j
erson’s house and he and Dickinson ,
urged hint-then to get away, fearing
the mob would kill him. lie then j
went to a friend, who took him by"!
byways on his horse to Thus. Hale’s, .
at Coleville. lie remained there j
that night, and while there the mob
passed hunting for him. lie then 1
took across into the Nation, and at |
an expense of $14 made his way to [
Denison. These two parties—Mc-
Farland and Phipps—we have heard |
before, are the terror of Dexter, and |
of every stranger who goes to that
place. About this matter we only
have Towles’ statement, and it may

A dispatch to theDaily Telegraph
from Simla, dated Oetobeer 10th,
says the silence of Sir Frederick
Roberts since Monday is believed
to simply mean the closing in
of the Ghilleas on the rear of his

newed the fighting Tuesday, which
impedes his advance to Cabin.
There has been interruption of tele-
graph lines between Peiwar and
