We are the only authorized agents in this An UnliiAtructed Delcgntlon Sent to M In- nenota—ldnho ' Kennbllcanfi Still For lltalue—Corllnle Witling to be a Candidate ftafbre the Democratic Convention — Powderly Opposed to Funion With the Old PartieH— Other Matters. Virginia Kepublloaitn, ROANOKE, Va., May G.—It was 3 o'clock this morning' before the Republican state convention adjourned. A big fight took place over the matter of instructing the delegation to tho national convention for Harrison. Ma- hono and Langston opposed the giving of instructions. They carried their point and the convention then adjourned sine die. Mahone said if instructions were given for Harrison he would not obey them. Powderly Opposed to Fusion. PHILADELPHIA, May G.—An address to the members of the order of Knights of Labor concerning tho forthcoming national convention of the People's party to be held in Omaha, on July the 4th, and which is to place in nomination a candidate for president and vice president, has been issued by General Master-Workmen Powderly. The document is a lengthy one and combats the idea that the Knights cannot pos sibly stand on the St. Louis platform with the granger element. It attacks the Plnkertons, the thugs, bullies and bummers in the employ of the old polit trades throughout the country asking what month between May and July such local union favors 'for the holding of a national convention, and what city is preferred The replies to this letter are to be in by the 15th of this month, and immediately thereafter a call for a convention will be issued for such day and place us a majority of the unions heard from may favor. President Gompers urges that, while it is perfectly natural for each union to prefer its own city, •it would be better to rise above that level and to select such a place as would be likely to bring about the best results. THE SANTA FE WRECK. Detail" iil the Disaster on that Road Last Wednesday Night. Pom- MAUISON.IO., May 0.—The scene of the Santa Fe railroad wreck presented a fearful appearance to-day. Scattered about in confusion was the debris of the cars, all of them having been completely demolished with the exception of the last sleeping ear, which remained on the track. The dead bodies are laid out at the undertaking shops. The woman killed was found to be Mrs. G.Bausch of San Bernardino, ller corpso is badly braised and covered with blood. Mrs.llausch's babe evidently had been drowned, as as no marks of violence were found. Luther Cornelius, the brakeman was found to be the most disfigured, his head and face being terrible bruised and the skull broken in several places. • William Hines was a large, strongly built man and when found only an arm and head were visible, lie had gone into the chair car because he would not pay two dollars and fifty cents for a berth in the sleep- ical parties, and says that tho duty of eri offering two dollars for it, S. B, patriots of the present day and generation is to divide their forces, split them in two, leave them no chance to keep together, and to do this by walk ing between them in the middle of the road. Powderly says that the people who believe in an honest national circulating medium, who have the welfare of the nation's currency in their keeping should not trust themselves among the thieves on the sidewalks while those who believe that the gov ernment should own and operate the railroads and telegraphs should not run the risk of being sidetracked by switching to one side or the other. Those who know how many million of acres of land have been stolen from the people, and how many have been de voted to bonanza farming should also keep in the middle of the road. Pow Verkler*s body was in a fearful condition. I lis head, face, neck and shoulders were a masB of bruises and jagged cuts. His face wore an expression of agony and in his hands was clenched the mud and clay which he had grasped in the struggle. Telegrams have been received from Peoria and Forest, 111. for his body. The only body thus far shipped is that of Lon Markee, which went this morning to his mother's home at Sumnor, Mo. He was probably drowned, there being few cuts on the body. Many passengers who escaped left Chicago on this morning's local passenger tain. Among them was Major Hudson, editor of the Topeka Capital He said: "When the train went down there was no such a babel of cries and The building was an immense structure, covering an entire square, and three stories high. During the progress of tnc Are the flames communicated to the great lard tanks which ex- pbidfiii. with much force. The piers at the foot of Forty-fifth street caught fire, and the flames spread rapidly: along the wharves as far as Forty- seventh street. The vessels laying alongside the wharves were towed hastily from the scene of conflagration. The cattle pens of the com-j pany were, threatened and 537 head of cattle were liberated. They stampeded through the streets and endangered the lives of hundreds of spectators who had gathered to witness the Are. There were many narrow escapes. The loss to the slaughter house company is nearly a million dollars, and the entire loss, including that on the wharves, brings the total fully up to a million. It is supposed the fire was of incendiary origin. A strike took place last night among the em­ ployes of the concern for better hours and regular work. It is thought the strikers set the fire out of revenge. All losses are insured. THE MINISTRY HAS RESIGNED. dctlon Tuken In View of the Failure or the Chamber or Duputlftn to Voto Contldonce In the Government—Trouble (Jlrovflng Out of a Proposed Reduction In the Naval Appropriation—Other Matters. KOMK, May (i.—Marquis Di Hudini, prime minister, to-day tendered to King Humbert the resignation of all the members of his cabinet, due to a refusal of the chamber of deputies yesterday to vote, confidence in the government's financial policy.

KANSAS CITV, Kan., May 0.—This was the closing day of the state convention of Young People's Christian Endeavor societies of Kansas. A sunrise prayer meeting was held at 0 o'clock, being conducted by Rev. W. E. Brem of Kinsley. . The convention opened at 9 o'clock with devotional exercises, under the charge of E. E.

Nelson, of Benton county, for governor, leaving in the hands of the central committee the matter of filling the other places on the ticket. ing at its height and the night was very dark. Work was commenced at onee on the wreck, but the light of the lanterns gave only flickering beams, and it was daylight before any effective service could be rendered." In the express car the trainmen found a small burro in a box which was completely wedged in by the timbers of the car. It was taken out unhurt. The most pathetic sight was that of Mrs. Bausch and the dead infant lying-side by side while the littlo daughter, 'i years old, was crying piti- ously for the dead mother. Had the accident happened to the California express with its 350 people, which was the train due at that time, the disaster would have been far worse and would probably have had no parallel in this country. Hulu Storms In Illinois. CiucAflo, May 0.—Rain storms without parallel in recent years have pre vailed throughout the western country for the last two days and the amount of damage done is enormous. Traffic on the Hock Island road between Joliet and the Mississippi, river has been suspended, owing to numerous washouts, with the result that the entire system is practically tied up. At Jolict hundreds of families had to quit their homes and go to the bluffs., fearful that the dam would go out, in which case the middle of the city would be placed under water. Train Hobbors Foiled. HELTON, Tex., May It.—A desperate attempt was made to rob the passenger train on the Missouri, Kansas and Texas railroad which left here early yes terday morning. Shortly after leaving this place the conductor discovered two masked men on the platform of the express car. The train was stopped and the men put off, and the train proceeded on its journey. The engineer saw a red lantern being waved some distance ahead of him. Slackening the speed of the train he discovered a number of men and observed they were masked He did not stop. As the train passed the men fired several volleys but none of the passengers were in jured. Working Through tho Pulpit. SeaANTON, Pa., May 6.—Powderly makes the startling statement that a Reading railway emissary has been the Lackawanna valley for some time in the interest of the great coal combine; that this man had seen every minister and priest of every denomination to some of whom he had offered iisscs and money if they would indorse :md approve the combine from their ilpits. In two instances, Powderly says, the emissary proposed to assume the debts of the churches and erect irochial schools. FOREIGN AFFAIRS.

BERLIN, May (5.—To-day is the tenth birthday of Fredrich Wilhelm Victor August Ernst von Hoheuzollern, Prince Imperial of Germany, and heir to the mighty empire—socialism and revolution preventing—which the iron will of Bismarck created after the troops of the Fatherland hud marched as victors under the Arch Trioraphe and compelled the remaining inhabitants of the gay French capital to crouch at their feet. It was on May 6th, 1882, that the Prince Royal of Prussia saw the light of day at Potsdam, and today he is one of tho brightest and heartiest youngsters to be fonnd in the Fatherland. His younger brother, Uitel Fritz, is also one of the most remarkable specimens of Teutonic infantile sturdincss to be found throughout the length and breadth of Germany. Both of thorn are playful little fellows, popular with the masses, and as democratic as their imperial parents and tutors will allow them to be. The sight is often witnessed of these little scions of the Imperial house romping unrestrainedly over tho green sward with the little ones of the local bourgeois residents, and apparently totally oblivious of the fact that so deep a chasm separates them. Tho capital is gaily decorated in honor of the day, and as a mark of distinction the littlo one will be formally entered on the rolls of the German army as a lieutenant.
