Down, of Fayette counly, gives tbe St. Louis Republican 'he f Mowing account of the accident which he witnessud: •'\Vc went through a sud experience ining down which none of us are ikely to fo'-get suon. We were on 'lie Chicago ami Alton Irain. Be- ween Vinlen and Ginird the tracks of the Alton and tlmse of tlie .lack- soiiville Southeastern run parallel. The accomni dution train on the Jackso ville road name alongside of us, and a race was commenced. We hud a. long, huavy train, and the Jacksonville train was light and ran ahead of us about a mile, I should hink. I could seo that they were running too fast, for I noticed,the lii ml trucks on the rear ear of I ho other train jumping up and almost mounting the rail at short intervals, und ahotit half way between Girurd and Virden, mid just about 100 yards north of a thin.y.foot trestle, tho hind trucks of the rear car of the JuckMonvillu train mounted the iail and left tho trauk. The trucks were torn completely from tho car, and w ;cn the trestle was reached the for- w.rd trucks wore also torn off, the two rear cars derailed, separated fioiu the other cars of the train and ditched, being rolled down a leu- foot embankment and landing on llu'ir sides. As t >e wrecked curs wore full of pasHC'iigers, we supposed many were killed, but forlunaU ly not. We could uot get too door§ U LrjjUlnture. HOC8E SPRIWOFULD, III., March 11—In the House, Mr. Messick, from the Committee on the Judicial Department, reported back, with. a aubsti- lute, the joint resolution providing for the BttbmiBsion of a conatitutiou-.il amendment prohibiting the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liq ors to a vote of the people at the next gcnei-al election, with tlie recommendation that the substitute be adopted. :. Mr. Merritt moved its reference t* the committee on License, and a division was called. ' ' Mr. Lament, Prohibitionist, the author of the original resolution, in explaining his vote, claimed that the motion was an attempt to kill the resolution and' an attempt to beat around the proposition.
