Cp from tbe Or a Buy-Out of All the Whisky Tru-i'i, L^ver Way. Uislnbutor.. CHICAGO, April 27.--By the action of a Todav was a holiday for all Xe\v York city aud tbe cities :md country round ·bout; but the day of preparation for this spectacle was scarcely less a holiday. Es- ijiantes ol the number of people who saw ibe fleet steam up the bay and river and take its position for the-review would be impossible. Every point of vantage from ·ibe lower bay to Kigbty-nintb street was crowded with interested sightseers. Tbe ·day was a perfect one. The first indication movement of the ships from their in the lower bay was the flash ·ci the national colors from Fort William, .followed, instantly by a flash of flame and » ltill boom at Fort AVadsworth. Up the narrows came the vessels and ,soon those with glasses could make out vhe Philadelphia and Blake at. the bead of the liue. governor's Salute?*. On they c.-une, keeping timeand distance like veteran soldiers, aud sooa t^he whole it spnctacle was iu view.

This action was the determination to issue bonds no meet the necessary expenses to bay ( it the present distributors of the company's product, aud if this cannot be accomplished then, to make the company its own distributor and establish the plants throughout the country which such n step involves. How much che amount will be cannot at the moment be exactly estimated. fn fact the gathering adjourned to meet again next month, by which time those its- signed the duty will be able to present a statement making clear the point. There are, however, fifty-two distributors. The plants of ?ome of these, according to Mr. ··which had at that, momeut occurred at the Battery. The Biuke, w i t h her two great tapering butf-colored .sniokustucks and ma- j 3estic iiiieu, caught the fancy of the crowd.

SOJIKKSET, Pa., April ^T.--Five persons have diel so far as the result of the catastrophe on the Bear Rocks railroad nud at least three others will die from their injuries. The names of the dead are: John A. Pile, farmer; Mrs. John A. Pile; Mary Pile, aged 12; Russel Xeff, aged I), and an Italian,.name unknown. Another unknown Italian is fatally injured aud will probably die. Engineer Xeffi, of the runaway locomotive, was badly scalded about his arms aud back and had a small bone in his left le$ broken. A number of Ita^n workmen were more or less seriously injured in jumping from the flying train. The .Bear Kock railway is the property of the Somerset stone quarry. It is only two miles in length and extends from Milford Station on the Somerset and Cambria railway to the quarries at Bear Kock. After the day r s work the train started fot-Milford station. John A. Pile, his wife and daughter were at the quarry at the time and they were invited by the engineer to get ou the engine and ride to the junction of the road. The engine wad hauling two loaded cars and started a*vay from the quarry at the usual rate of speed. Suddenly the speed of the train increased, and ou applying the air brakes they did not work. The crash at the bottom of the grade was awful aud resulted in the foregoing death list.
