There is no tfreat improvement in their case yet. McKInlej Fears Banna's Defeat. A Washington dispatch says that •it is an open secret that the President 1s filled with apprehension for »he success, in Ohio next week, of ils close personal friend and chief political adviser, Mark Hanna. All advices reaching the Executive Mansion presages disaster for Hanna. Among the causes contributing to the distressing position in wblch Hanna placed is that of his connection with the Union Pacific railroad as a government director, his acceptance of a $2,000,000 campaign contribution from interested New York bankers, based on the implied promise that the foreclosure proceedings instituted by the Cleveland administration, would be indorsed in the event of Republican success, and the fact that Hanna himself is interested in transportation SPEAKING of his religious beliefs or nun-beliefs, the late Charles A Data Is credited with this remark a few days before he died. "I was brought up a Calvioist; then I became a Unitarian, then a Sweden borglan Now I don't belong to any church. Many of my best friends are Catholics. I believe in the re ]lgton of humanity." • - THE Marlon county grand jury has investigated the the Seibert Fulmer bribery case »"« found no Indictment against SterllngR. Holt. It appears that there-was no evidence to justify an Indictment. It would seem now tnat tbe whole .affair was a scheme devised to injure Mayor Taggart In his race for re-election. THE Pharos has been able to draw out considerable.-.^nfprmation concerning the electric light plant. It is the general opinion that with proper management the plant is going to be a money maker. From the Information brought out oy the recent discussion of its needs, it is quite evident that some new and more powerful machinery should be provided. From what the Pharos can learn the cost of providing machinery of greater capacity will not be great. THE cities of Ohio gave McKinley large majorities last fall. If Hanna loses these same cities next Tuesday his defeat for the senatorsbip is assured. There is an open revolt against Hannaism in Cincinnati, Cleveland and-Toledo and the prospects are that the Democrats will carry all of them. If they do, Hanna Is beaten and the state will go Demo- ciatic. Hanna is depending on the country districts to make good his ]o«ses ia the cities. He will likely ' M disappointed. While farmers are getting better prices for their wheat, they know that Hanna had nothing to do with it and they are not likely to vote for the boss monopolist: orl that score. The indications are that Hanna wlljbe defeated. THE railroad employes of the country are not regretting their l»bori and. votes of last year in favor ol McKinley, sound money and protection.—Journal. Yes. the net earnings of the railroads are unusually large. More mea are being employed. The wages of men employed by the railroads have not been increased. Some men are earning more, but they are working longer hours. So far as the election of McKinley is concerned it has effected no change. We still have t.he same kind of "sound money. 1 ' The taiifl has been raised in the interest of the §ugar trust and Other gangs or organized robbers; but how does an increase in the tariff help men in the railway service if it increases the prices of clothing, boots and shoes, •ugarand other necessaries of life without correspondingly increasing Human Life Crushed Out and More Than Half a Million in Property Lost.

Oct. 2$.—A Glasgow, Mont., •pcial to The Pioneer Press says: Three miles east of Hinsdale at 3:14 o'clock yesterday rr.ornig the most serious wreck that has occurre.J on this division of the Great Northern read took place when a double-header hauling sixty empties telescoped into a stock train running east. Two mtn are r.ow dead as a result of the accidel'H and several were seriously injured. The dead are: Harry Neale, en- gineeer on stock train; Fireman John Garton, on rear engine of the doubleheader. Neale was a married man with a \vifeand two children residing in Glasgow. Garton will also be mourned by a wife and child, who reside in Beatrice, Neb. He was recently from Great Falls, •where he had been employed in a similar capacity. Caiiio Together in a Narrow Cot. The injured are: John Hayfield, Glasgow, engineer, injured in the back, inkle sprained and badly cut about the head and face, one rib broken; John Owens, G'lasprow, head brakeman, right leg broken below the knee and back sprained: Alphonse Landonette, fireman on Xeale's engine, shoulder broken, ankle sprained, ears almost severed from the head and badly cut about the head and face. Both trains were running at the rate of twenty-eight miles an hour •n-hen they came together in a narrow cut just around a sharp bend in the road. Engineer Still Under the -Wreck. The banks on both sides were high and covered with rocks, and how any one on the engines escaped with his life is little short of a miracle. Immediately after the collision fire broke out, and twenty cars were totally destroyed before the flames could be extinguished, Neale met instant death, the car-load of copper going right over his body. All day the wrecking trains worked, but at. dark they had not found the body of the unfortunate engineer. His wife was in a delicate condition at the time of the accident, and the shock to her was sc great that for 1 a time the physicians feared for her life. Garton was knocked through the window of the engine bj the tender, and,fell on his back across 'c huge boulder. He lived for six hours and was conscious to the last.

Would not the railroads been kept busy hauling our surplus wheat and corn, pork and beef to the seaboard to be shipped abroad to feed the people of the Old World?
