A NORTHWESTERN WRECK. One Man Killed and Several Other* tn< Jurod In A Collision at Baclno ,Iunn- tlon. Wis., March 20.— As previously reported, a serious wreck occurred on the Northwestern road at Racine Junction Tuesday night by which one man was killed, two dangerously hurt and three others more or less injured. A mail car, baggage car and five freight (?ars were destroyed by firo. The pecuniary loss is estimated at $50,000. The collision occurred at mid night between a north-bound Chicago & Northwestern passenger train and a south-bound freight train on the samo line. The latter train consisted of sixty-four ears, and was under such headway that it could not be checked sufficiently to allow side-tracking. Both trains came together on the main track at the depot with the above result. Following is a list of the victims: Willis Andrews, of Fond tin Lac, fireman on freight train, killed; Murtln Rive, of Milwaukee, freight engineer, probably fatuity Injured; Dennis K. Buriio, of Milwaukee, passenger on- ginoor, dangerously hurt: I. T. do Silva, of Chicago, express mossengor, bmlly bruised; John Grobbcn, of Milwaukee, passenger fireman, badly scalded: J. Bower, of Evanston, 111., assistant express messenger, burned and cut. The two locomotives were lifted bodily from the track. Martin Howe, engineer of the freight, jumped through the cab window and saved himself, receiving only a few bruises, but Willis Andrews, of Crystal Lake, 111., the fireman. jumped on the opposite side and was caught in the wreck. He was taken cmt dead two hours afterwards, his body being crushed and burned be yond recognition. D. E. Burke, the engineer, and John Drabben, fireman of the passenger, both of Milwaukee, jumped and were seriously injured, the latter being badly crushed and scalded. Drabben is still alive, but cannot live. Burke will recover. Two express cars and four freight cars loaded with beer were piled on top of each other, and immediately took fire and were destroyed with most of their contents. The efforts of the Racine fire department prevented the further spreading of the flames, however, and no serious damage was done the passenger coaches. In the safe of the American Express Company was $10,000 in currency for northern banks from Chica.go. So intensely hot did the fire become that the safe was soon red-hot and when opened at noon half the currency was found burned to ashes and the other half partially burned. The express company will lose about &5,000 of the money, enough being saved of the other half 'to insure its redemption. Several thousand dollars of jewelry was melted and run into one lump. The United States express also lost a large amount of money. Not a pound of express or mail was saved. TROUBLE WITH CROFTERS. Police Scut to Drive the Rebellious Band from T.owis Island. EDINBURGH, March 20.—Considerable interest is taken in the present doings and in the possible future of the determined crofters of Lewis island, who are in a state of open rebellion against the local and other authorities. On Monday night a band of 100 crofters of Lewis island, off the west coast of Scotland, marched from one point of the island to the, other and arrived Tuesday morning at Orissay park forest, from which they had been evicted by the owner of the land in order to enable him to convert the forest into a deer reserve. Upon reaching the forest the crofters intrenched themselves in the ruins of their former homes and prepared to stand a siege. They formed a camp, posted sentinels and have ran- nounced that they intend to cultivate the land which they formerly held as tenants of the landlord who turned them out of their homes in order to gratify his pleasure in hunting, and in addition the crofters said that they were prepared to resist by force any attempt that may be made to oust them. A force of police has been collected and is already en route to the scene of trouble, with instructions to drive the crofters out of the intrenched camp at any and all costs. DEATHS FROM TRICHINA. A Whole Family hi Milwaukee Infected with 1'arasites by Kntlng I'orlc Sausage. MILWAUKEE, Wis., March 26.—Two members of the family of John Runke, C01 Eighteenth street, are dead from trichina poisoning and five others are ill. About two weeks ago the family partook of some pork sausage and a few days thereafter several of them were stricken down with what was regarded as typhoid fever. A boy of 8 years died on the 17th hist, and a girl of 2 years on the 21st. Wh<» the remainder of the family was stricken an investigation was made which resulted in the discovery that the pork sausage was the cause of the trouble and that the victims were being destroyed by parasites.

LYONS, Kan., March 20.—A horrible accident occurred at the Lyons Rock Salt Company's mine at this place at 4 o'clock u. m.

Two of the men had the backs of their heads cut off completely from their eyes to the base of the skull. Three were disemboweled. One was so badly mangled as to be almost unrecognisable. SKIPPED WITH MILLIONS. How tho Heirs of an Indiana Millionaire Outwitted tho Asgednorg—To Evade the ttoyment Of Tnxes IFhcy t,enre the State with the Hulk of their Estate. DELPiir, Ind., March 37.—A little over one year ago Abncr II. Bowen died at his home in this city, leaving a fortune, mostly in personal property, of $5,000,000. He had scarcely been buried when the officials of .the county moved on his estate to collect back taxes on property that had been hidden from the assessors, and the series of rows it raised would fill a large book. The elder Bowen, although possessed of millions, listed for taxes only a few thousands, but so great was his power that no man made a move during his lifetime to compel him to pay taxes on all the property he owned. The Bowen heirs failed to agree among themselves upon an administrator and the court appointed the county trcasiirer, under the' statute,.to act in that capacity. The heirs fought his appointment as being inimical to the interests of tho estate and took the matter to the supreme court, but the higher court decided against them. The heirs kept up the fight until Wednesday afternoon, when the attorneys for the county filed a statement with the auditor asking that personal property to the value of over 93,000,000 be placed upon the tax duplicate against the •• estate of Abner II. Bowen, This demoralized them. They secretly commenced to pack up their possessions. Trunks, valises, sachels and boxes were brought into requisition, and in them were stored notes, mortgages, bonds and stocks. With these in their possession the heirs departed on the midnight train and now the widow is in Urbana, 111., Edward Bowen is Jn Chicago, while A. T. Bowen and Etta Bowen are on their way to Philadelphia. All have given up their residence in Indiana except Nathaniel Bowen, who retains the real estate. It is estimated that the value of the property carried -away is in the neighborhood of $2,000,000. When the announcement of the retreat of the heirs 'was made Thursday morning no one appeared more surprised than their attorneys, who declared that they had not received a hint of the intended flight of their clients. Two reasons are given for the sensational move of the Bowen heirs. They desired to get their possessions out of the state before the assessor came around next month to list property under the new law, and they also figure on having the tax suits transferred to the United States court on the ground that they are non-residents. The bank in this city owned and operated by the family- is in the hands of an assistant cashier and is meeting all obligations, many depositors having withdrawn their money Thursday. It is anticipated that when the news is generally circulated in the country a run will be made upon the institution. IN GREAT DISTRESS. Starving: Kansas Farmers Seeking for Assistance. KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 27.—A committee reached here from Wallace county, Kan., Thursday afternoon in search of aid for the starving and freezing farmers of that region. When it was decided to send a committee here a mass meeting was called to raise money to defray the expenses of t'-.i delegates.

The 2,400 people of Wallace county are hovering about fires made of buffalo and cow chips, and their daily fare is not enough to suffice a child for one meal. Last year was the fourth successive crop failure in western Kansas. SHOT DOWN IN HER HOME. An Indiana Woman Brutally Murdered by Some Unknown Person.
