It was known as the Potts- Tille express and was running at the rate of at least thirty-eight to forty miles an hour. It had on board possibly 135 or 150 passengers and consisted of engine, tender, mail and express oars and three passenger coaches. Above Shoemakersvllle, this county, about fifteen miles from this city, is a ·harp curve, where the railroad Is about ·tfaUen to twenty feet higher than the Sohuylkill river. Here shortly before six o'clock a freight train ran Into a coal train, throwing several cars of the latter oa the opposite track. Baton the train hands had time to go back to wan, any approaching train of the danger the Pottsvllle express came around the curve and ran into the wracked coal cars on Its track. The engine went down the embankment into the river, followed by the entire train with it* human freight. Some of the passengers managed to crawl out of their prison and arouse the neighborhood. Word was telegraphed to this city and help summoned, but al Information was refused at this point by the "railroad officials. Physicians and surgeons and a force of 800 work nan ware taken to the spot by the company and with the aid of a traveling eleotrto light plant the work of clearin) tony the wreck was at once began. Cp to midnight thirteen bodies had been recovered. Five bodies are exposed to view in the wreck. They are pinned under the timbers. Conservative estimates place the ·umber of Jellied at from forty to fifty. IfelSjaamosa, Impossible to estimate the aaart nnrtber and the full horror of the situation will not be known before morning.

JbumnOk Pa., Sept 30.--At two cRploeh this morning the situation as follows: Three hundred men were Stilt at work, but wero making slow progress. Fifteen bodies had been taken out. None of the bodies have been taken from the scene of the disaster. It is still believed that twenty or more are underneath the wreck. Who they are is not known, because It is not known who was on the train, and how many were actually killed will only be disclosed with the removal of the engine and cars from the bed of the river. When daylight dawned a terrible scene was disclosed The engine lay In fonr and a half feet of water, the body of the engineer, John White, still pinned underneath the heavy Ironwork, his arms extended in an appealing manner above the water. The engine's pon- derovrmsett\n«ry was bent and twisted. Naxtlaj^the tender on its side, and then the baggage and mail cars and the pas- sengstttoaohes In the order in which they left the track, the timbers broken ana the cars overturned, pinning the nnrescued victims at the bottom of the river. On the river bank lay a long row of dead bodies. The passenger train crashed Into the wreck while going at the rate of sixty- five miles an hour. Host of the victims came from the coal regions along the Reading road. This forenoon a delegation of Mahanoy City people arrived to take charge of their dead. The ill-fated train is the same that was wrecked at Tuokerton, June 23 last. Engineer White and fireman Templin, killed yesterday, filled the places of the Heller brothers, engineer and fireman respectively, who lost their lives in the first mentioned accident »" r'sjomr or A SUBVIVOM. BauAora, Pa., Sepc-SO.--One of the passengers who went down in the wreck and who was but slightly injured, and was one of the sixteen of the Injured brought on a special train to the Read- Ing hospital at eleven o'clock, says that when the passenger train left Reading the oars were all well filled. Among the people were many ladles. Be ·at in the front part ot the last oar. This Is hl» story: "The train was going at a lively rate of speed. The passengers appeared a happy crowd, many of them Indies, chatting and laughing after a day's pleasure at the Berks County fair- x was viewing the lot we were passing ere tfas a terribll j crash. I was burled from my seat, while the cars relied down the twenty- foot embankment, and I was thrown from one side of the car to the other like a toy, when--splash, one end went into the water and I was thrown against the side of the car with a force that partially stunned me. I quickly recovered myself and managed to climb upon the seats on that side of the car which lay against the embankment. I was a prisoner in the car unable to get out, and while nursing my sprained ankle and wrist out of joint I realized that I was in a scene of veritable horror. Around and about me were human beings struggling in the water, screaming in their fright, and some almost dragged me back into the water again. A few saved themselves as I did and the remainder struggled in the water and then quietly sank out ol sight.'" onosa OF RKBEKAB, I. O. O. F. Sovereign Grand Lod^e Refuses Recognition In 3Tatlon.il Conventions. TOPEKA, Kan., Sept 20.-- The first annual convention of the Order of Rebekah will be its last. When the sovereign grand lodge of Odd Fellows met yesterday the petition of the Rebekahs for a continuance was given a special hearing and by a practically unanimous vote a substitute was agreed upon which will do away with national conventions. Mrs. Rea, the president, said of this action: "My only hope is that the representatives who voted against us will not be elected to attend another grand lodge meeting." The amendment to the constitution in regard to the eligibility of saloon keepers was voted down by an overwhelming majority. This came up on the case appealed from the Missouri grand lodge which took action refusing saloon keepers admission on the ground that their business was not moral. The judiciary committee submitted its reports on the cases of Grand Master Barnum, of Illinois, and Captain General Ellis, ot the Patriarchs Militant. In the Barnum case the committee overruled the grand sire and in the Kills case confirmed his ruling. The grand lodge will act on both reports to-day. The degree of chivalry was conferred on Mrs. Rea by the sovereign grand lodge and the Daughters of Rebekah gave her a handsome diamond ornament emblematic of the order But the jewel and the honor does not compensate for the chagrin she feels at the action of the grand lodge. CAUSK of Don's Report Shown How Money Comes to Be Scarce--Trude Matters. NEW YORK, Sept 20.-- R. G. Dun Co.'s weekly review of trade says: The root of the difficulty is that wheat is quoted at 93% cents at Chicago, 81.02% here and only about SI. OS at Liverpool for the same grade, so that no free and natural movement to the seaboard, or hence to Europe, can take place. Similar obstacles check the movement of some other products. Exports ot wheat and corn are not h a l f t those of lust year at corresponding dates, but imports are coming forward in large volume, anxiety to get goods entered here before the new tariff goes into effect being great In half of September the increase of imports over last year at New York has been 9 per cent., but the decrease in exports here has been 19 per cent. The movement during the past week has been toward a natural adjustment of prices, and wheat is 3£ cents lower, w th sales of 31,000 000 bushels; corn a halt cent lower, with sales of 12,000,000 bushels; cotton an eighth lower, with sales ot 340,000 bales, and lard and hogs a shade lower, but oats have risen a fraction, oil nearly a cent and butter and some other other farm products are higher. The consumption of iron is enormous, the largest ever known But the new business in bar iron is not heavy and the demand for rails Is light, with some sales at S3 and reports of others oven lower. Pig iron is weaker, though quotations do not changn. Friday's Uose-Ball. AMUUCAS ASSOCIATION. St. Louis --St. Louis, S, Kochestor, 7. Louisville--Louisville, 9, Athletics, 4.

Volume IV. No. 174.--New Series AN EXPLANATION. The Purchase of Silver Issue of Notes. and ANSWER TO SENATOR PLUMB. Notes of Large Denomination Printed Because of the Short Period of Time Allowed -Ko Great Demand For Redemption In Gold. WASHINGTON, Sept 20.--Acting Secretary Batoheller, of the Treasury, sent to tbe Senate the following reply to Senator Plumb's resolution of inquiry about the department's method ot purchasing and paying for silver ..bullion: "There is no rule or policy of this department which requires that checks drawn in payment of silver bullion purchased under the recent act of Congress be paid over the counter of the sub- treasury at New York. As a matter of fact these checks pass through the New York clearing house the same as other checks drawn on the Assistant Treasurer at New York. In regard to the issue of Treasury notes of large denomination in payment for silver purchased I have the honor to state thatitwasfound Impracticable to engrave and print in the period of thirty days, the time allowed between tbe passage of the act July 14, 1890, authorizing the Issue Of these notes and the date the purchases of silver were to commence--a sufficient supply of these notes to comply with the law except in denominations bf 81,000 and $100. In the course of a few days, however--certainly by the first of next week--the supply of Treasury notes of small denominations Will be sufficient to enable tbe department to make payments for silver purchased in notes of small denominations Instead of larger ones. When the supply ot small notes will permit the notes of large denominations already issued will be changed at the Treasury and Its branches for notes of small denominations, and as fast as such notes ot large denominations are received in the Treasury, notes of smaller denominations will be paid out In their stead. In order to prevent any scarcity of notes of small denominations by reason of the necessary issue of Treasury notes of large denominations, the Treasurer of the United States has been in the habit of receiving Treasury notes of large dfr' nominations on deposit with tbe Assistant Treasurer at New York for transfer of funds and shipping from the Treasury notes of small denominations (silver certificates and greenbacks) to banks requesting them With reference to tbe Inquiry whether such method of payment does not practically result in the payment of such checks in gold coin. instead of Treasury notes, I have the honor to state that tbe amount of Treasury notes paid out to date in the purchase of silver bullion, all in denominations of SI, 000 and S100, has been 55,200,000, of which amount $985,600 have been received back in the Treasury in the payment of dues and are now carried as cash, leaving the sum of S4 233,000 in circulation- So far as the department is Informed, there has been no demand of any magnitude upon the Treasury for the redemption of these notes in gold coin."

The Olrl Not So Wondorrutly In Lore With Him--QuarrreLi With Her Mother- Bodies to Be Cremated. NBW YOHK, Sept 30.-- Gossip from across the water has robbed the double suicide of the German actress, Emllle Rossi, and her artist lover, Gustavo Koch, of much of Its tender romance. It appears now that the girl did not love Koch, and It seems probable that he was her dupe, insofar that he believed that sb* loved him as he loved her. Accord ing to the belief of those who knew the girl best her object in inducing Koch to die with her was that she might make in death, since she could not in life, at least one Intensely theatrical and tragic appearance before tho public. ' Koch was not living with his wife when he first met Miss Rossi, in 1887, at the home of Mrs. Pools (Carols En glaender), the wife of the manager ot'.a -theater. He fell in love with her then and told her so. He remained true to her the two years following, when she was in Hamburg, during which period he won a sensational divorce case against his wife, in which an instantaneous photograph of the wife and the co-respondent completed the evidence. But if the young actress was in love ·with any body it was with Herr Maurice, director of the Theater Central of Hamburg, where she played on her return from New York. Herr Maurice was a handsome young man, but be was married and had two children. Emilia's infatuation for him got to be tb* talk of tho company at Hamburg just before her departure for New York, in August Meantime Mme. Rossi, her mother, was extremel] anxious that she should marry a youn| Hamburg merchant named Silberberg. His photograph, taken alongside o: Mine. Rossi, was found among the act ress* possessions. It shows him to be a finely-built and handsome young man, with fair hair and full, beard. He is rich and has social position. He was ttttch in love with the girl. There were quarrels between the mother and daughter over the girl's refusal to marry Sllberberg. Early last summer, it is said, Mrs. Maurice heard -of the infatuation' of the girl for Maurice and several scenes followed. Rumors of the affair had reached the girl's mother, when she left for New York. A rich younff Hamburger named Sohlndler, who was very much in love With the girl, and whom she bad apparently encouraged, saw her off at the wharf after loading her state room with flowers. Director Maurice was also at the wharf. _. Eight days after Miss Rossi arrived here she received a letter from her mother. Sho read it at tbe Amberg Theater, In cho office, and at once became hysterical and went away crying. It was learned yesterday that in this letter her mother upbraided her severely and ended by declaring that hereafter they would be strangera Some love affairs of her's, it could not be learned what, was the cause of Mme. Rossi's anger. In the letter was: "Your last look as you left these shores was for him, not for mo." Miss Lotta Peltz, the cousin of the dead girl, with whom she boarded at Mrs. Rhorrn's, said yesterday that tin-type of a young man who had been a sweetheart of Miss Rossi's in Hamburg had been found among her possessions. Miss Rossi had spoken sentimentally about him within tbe last fortnight and had said that sho loved him She had called him Felix, but had never mentioned his last name. i The last requests of both the actress land tbe artist will probably bo carried 'out, so far as cremation Is concerned. I The body of Koch still lies at Under- ttaker Dahn's. Victor Stolt, of Potts- itown, Pa., who is Koch's nearest friend In-this country, has not yet arrived, but ha! been heard from and Is expected today. Until his arrival. Coroner Hanly has refused a burial permit If he consents the services over Koch will also be hold early Sun- may afternoon and tbe body will be sent to Fresh Pond to be cremated with the girl's. Eoch was a Roman Catholic. It has been suggested that the rule of the Church forbidding the re-marriage of a divorced man was one of the explanations of the double suicide. If Kooh had been so good a churchman as all that perhaps be would not have committed suicide. counter. BAILLZK. A Gallant Soldier Terrlbtjr Wounded and ~ Afflicted With Dipsomania. PHILADELPHIA, Sept 20.-- Colonel Alexander Bailie, who killed himself in Chicago Thursday, was for twenty years after the war a familiar personage on the streets of this city. Colonel Balllle Was connected with one of the oldest and most distinguished Pennsylvania families, the Mueblbergers. He was also a relative of tne late Franklin B. Gbwan, long president of the Reading road. Colonel Balllle was a gallant soldier on the Union side all through the civil war. He was wounded in the face in one ot the early battles of Virginia. The wound fright- folly disfigured his, countenance. After the war be lost a number of good positions which his friends secured for him, through habits of intemperance, which were no doubt superinduced by mental depression, the result of bis terrible physical afflictions. He was so sensitive that he avoided social intercourse as much as possible, and gradually became estranged from most of his friends. He for many years maintained nimsell by literary work. Conductor Lowrey and Brakeman Brockemiller, of the Chicago Alton, at Venice were trying to rid their caboose of vermin by using gasoline. The rasoline caught fire from a cigar, and Lowrey was fatally and Brockemiller very badly burned. AT THE Grocery : Store "S *·: IN STAPLE AND FANCY Provisions, Etc.
