The tons lii^t ol'tlie Wounded In tite Fatal Wreck Near Ha^er.stoivn Wednesday. hater details of the frightful wreck near Hagerstown render it a matter of much wonderment how so many passengers escaped instant death. Besides the four men killed outright the list of wounded was a long one. Of this number it is thought that only two, Mrs. McGrew, of Richmond and Mrs. Busim, of Sacramento, California, were the only ones seriously hurt. The latter lady was the only passenger in the ill-fated chair car besides the ones killed. The injured are: Mrs. Gaorgu .vicCraw, Rlclnna:i.l.

He was on his way home from his farm, forty miles from Chicago, when the train went over. He was a rising- young railroad man and capitalist, beinjj one of the .Pan-Handle syndicate interested in El wood (Ind.) property. Case was one of the oldest conductors on the road. Among- the wounded Mrs. Oeorgs McGrew, also of Richmond; it is thought will die. Henry C. Fox, a prominent Richmond attorney, is in a critical condition. As to the cause of the accident Engineer Bartlett says that about three- quarters of a mile from the town he heard something- break, and before he could control the train the right side connecting-rod broke, and at the water tank a quarter of a mile further on pieces of iron from, the engine fell across the track and derailed the train, and then the ill-fated train rushed on to its doom beyond the control of the man at the throttle. The Trunk Has Turned Up. The tru-nk belonging ^to F. C. Schmidt which was stolen from a wagon at the foot of the hill back of Tuckers ware house on the canal Wednesday was yesterday morning turned over to Mr. Schmidt by Gus Eberline who claimed and was paid the reward of $5.00 that was offered for the same. Mr. Schmidt, had come in from Washington townsnip to go to Chicago, his trunk having been brought in, in a neighbors wagon and left as above. When Eberline returned the stolen property he said that he found it in a hollow near the ..Logan Mills. Suspicion was afterward directed toward Eberline and Detective Morgan began an investigation which resulted later in Gus' arrest and incarceration by Marshal Dean and Officer Manders. A party was found at the gas works who said that he saw Eberline walking along the old canal with the trunk oa his back. .Gus will be held for the investigation of the court.

Item* from Note-Book of On ilie Railway Beporter—Point* Per- Noiial niid : O.i]icr\vIse. There has never been, a special train run in this country which attracted more attention than that carrying the remains of the late General Sherman over the Pennsylvania and the Vandalia lines from New York to 'St. Louis and the precision with which the train reached every point on the two lines has excited much favorable comment. "But few people," said a Pennsylvania official yesterday, "are aware of the expense attached and the precautions necessary in running trains of this character. First, train-dispatch-, ers are apprised of the running- of the train and the time at which it is expected to reach each point by the respective division superintendents, and orders are given that all other classes of trains shall be kept such a distance behind or ahead of the special in order that no rear or head collision can occur: then an engine is selected which is known to be in the best condition; one of the best engineers and firemen are selected, who will run the train evenly, and on this occasion the engine foreman rode on the foot-board to be in readiness were anything to occur which disabled the engineer or his firemen, and to see that the engine performed satisfactorily over each division the respective superintendeot invariably accompanied the train, and on this train was carried a telegraph operator and a telegraph repairer, with several hundred feet of wire and a telegraph instrument; there were also two car inspectors aboard. These trains consist of the best private cars built, provided with all conveniences and safety devices. _The track is carefully patroled before the hour that the train is expected, until it passes, and, taken all in all, the running of such a train requires much attention and results in heavy expense as compared with running an ordinary train." A special from Pittsburg says: The conference of the Pennsylvania officials to arrange a schedule of wages is still in session, and will not adjourn before to-morrow. The men are still awaiting the company's proposition, and nothing will be done till after it has been presented. The company does not anticipate that the operative schedule will be satisfactory to all, for. the reason that the contemplated equalization will reduce the pay of some nnen. This may have the effect of creating differences in the councils of the grievance committees; at least, while some may approve it, others will receive it with disapproval. While the company'appears to feel secure on the strike question, the attitude of the men is directly opposite. They are as firm in their sentiments to-day, even more so than they were-- a week ago. Forty engineers, representing the brotherhood enginemen of all the Pennsylvania railroad organizations, have decided to act with the other organizations in their efforts to secure higher wages. This action was declared at the engineers' conference to-day. The conference has been in session since Monday and concluded its work this afternoon. This decision was received with the utmost satisfaction by the members of other organizations. It means now that engineers, firemen, conductors, trainmen and switchmen of the entire system concerned will act as a unit. The engineers authorize the statement that the work of equalization on the part of the company is equivalent to cutting down at one point and filling up at another, and will not be satisfactory, and that unless a clear advance is granted, merchants, shippers and the company will be given four days' notice, which they consider is ample time for preparations. Merlr. Wins. We desire to say to our citizens, that for years we have been selling Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Dr. King's New Life Pills, Bucklen's Arnica Salve and Electric Bitters, and have never handled remedies that sell as well, or that have given such universal satisfaction. . We do not hesitate in guarantee them every time, and we stand ready to refund the purchase price, if satisfactory results do not not follow their use. These remedies have won their great popularity purely on their merits. B. F. Keesling Druggist. ,_ 1 Gratifying to All. The. high position attained and the universal acceptance and approval of the pleasant liquid fruit remedy Syrup of Figs, as the most excellent laxative known, illustrate the value of the qualities on which its success is based and are abundantly gratifying- to the California Fig Syrup Company.

Yesterday owning at 4:45, at his home, No. 419 Market street, Mr. George H. Button, the veteran Pennsylvania conductor, breathed his last. His death was the result of the second. stroke of paralysis sustained on the 7th inst., and was not unexpected. The deceased was born in Washington county, N. Y, -September, 5, 1828, and was consequently 63 years of age, He continued to reside in New York until he was 30 years of age, then came west, locating at Pebria, 111., where he resided some years serving as conductor on the old T., P. & W, road. He was married at Peoria on June 1, 1860 to Mary Smith and upon the completion of the State Line division of the Pan Handle removed to this city where he has since resided. He continued in the employ of the road until a couple of years ago when a stroke of paralysis compelled him to retire and there was not on the entire system a more popular conductor, popular with the traveling public and popular at home, His residence of twenty-eight years in Logansport had made him one of the city's best known citizens and his friends were legion. His wife and four children Harry, George, Jessie and Mrs. John Hays, survive him. Harry has been living in old Mexico for some years past, but has been telegraphed ror and is expected to arrive in time for the funeral. Mr. Button has two brothers one at Willard, N. Y., and one in New York city, and two sisters, Mrs. Davis, at Saratoga, and Mr?. Marshall in Sweiger county, N. Y. It is noJ known whether any of them will be at the funeral or not. Mr. Button was a careful manager and during his long service on the road earned a competence which leaves his family in omfoi'table cir cumstances. The funeral will probably be Sunday although no definite announcement can be made until the distant relatives are heard from. Tin: Keiiialnv Brought Home. At 1:30 yesterday afternoon the remains of poor Charley Case, the conductor who went to his death over the embankment near Hagerstown, down which plunged the ill-fated Louisville train Wednesday, were brought to this city and were immediately conveyed to his late home at No. 928 High street, where the distracted widow and orphaned child awaited the return to them of all that was mortal of a beloved husband and d-evoted father. Mrs. Case was well nigh crazed with grief at her sudden and untimely affliction and the sympath' of the community goes out to ber'and her little daughter in the hour of their bereavement.. •• The sudden taking off of Conductor Case has cast a gloom over the spirits of his railway associates and many friends among whom he was deservedly popular. The deceased was 36 years of age and had been in the service of the Pennsylvania road for almost twenty years. He was a careful and prudent official and bis services were valued highly by the company. The date of the funeral has not yet been arranged and will be announced later. 1,1st of Advertised Remaining in tbe postofflce at Logansport for the weekending Feb. 21, 1891. LADIES' LIST.

CLOTH TOP SHOES. > tfi ^ r CLOTH tops are again being accorded a considerable degree of popularity r 1 ' " in both men's and women's goods. Cloth is superior to leather,in every way v except durability, and ever, in that it holds its own in some casesas against 1 '^ some of the leather used for tops. Cloth is the best material for shoe tops im * the case of persons whose feet have a tendency to perspire freely, as the surplus. A. f heat of the foot as well as its moisture is allowed to radiate and transpire -4", thruugh. the meshes of the textile fabric much more readily than though thas'c/. leather. Good cloth is not materially affected by moisture, and excels leather—, , used for toppings in resisting its attacks. Cloth does nof crack, scale, turn red ; or grow stiff and chafe the wearer. It is more comfortable and smooth fitting 1 than leather. It makes a handsome effect by contrast when used with leather vamp. It is more "dressy," and, in fact, as we said at the outset, better for toppings than the leather generally* used in every way, providing a first-class quality of cloth is employed. There are cloth fabrics sold for shoe tops that are not desi.able, just as there are^kinds of leather used for shoe soles that are not desirable: some being cheap and • poor quality, for use in cheap shoes, and some being fine quality and intended more for appearance than wear. There is a grade of cloth for every grade of shoe, and the best grades are more ^ • expensive than fine leather. The patterns vary from plain black to fancy figured.
