WILL THE POPE LEAVE ROME? INTO AN OPEN SWITCH, The Editor of The Western Watchman Expresses His Views on the Matter. ST. Louis, Oct. 26.—The Rev. D. S. Phelan. editor of The Western Watchman, who keeps up a correspondence with Rome that places him in possession of facts that might be considered almost official, was questioned as to his views on recent rumors concerning the state of affairs now existing there and the talk that the pope might leave: ''A similar agitation," he said, "was at white boat when I was in Rome two years ago. It was all arranged for the pop.- to leave for some haven of refuge. At the last moment, however, the pope abandoned the scheme. "But the circumstances v/hich led to a discussion of the abandonment of Rome two years ago have become more imperative with time. There is no telling at what instant the mob may storm the Vatican, assassinate the pope and desecrate the papal possessions." THE FIRST TO INCORPORATE. Kt«nt« of Minor Importance Briefly Chronicled.

THEIR IDEAS OF REFORM. Illinois Farmers' Mutual Benefit Association Tells What it Wants. SPRINGFIELD, His., Oct. 22.—There was a hot fight in the state assembly of the Farmers' Mutual Benefit association over the law virtually declaring for free whisky. A resolution was finally adopted as follows: We are opposed to all monopolies and want it distinctly understood that the intoxicating liquor traffic is included. We oppose the unholy alliance of the government and monopolies. As a remedy we propose that all revenue and license laws high and low must be repealed, both state and national. Other resolutions adopted declare for equal assessment upon all property; graduated income tax; free and unlimited coinage of silver; censuring the present sj r stem of storing silver as a fraud; declaring that all stocks and bonds of corporations shall be issued on such a basis that when they call for one dollar they shall represent 100 cents legitimate outlay; favoring uniformity of school text books; election of president, vice-president, United States senators and postmasters by the direct vote of the people; declaring in favor of patronizing manufacturers who use home grain fibre in the manufacture of binding twine, rope, bagging, etc., and favoring the extension of free delivery mail service in rural districts. DISASTROUS WRECK ON TH£ BURLINGTON AT MONMOUTH, IL.U8, fast Express ttunnlng Forty-*"lv6 Mllos an Roar Thrown From the Tracks-Five Passenger* Instantly Killed and Fifty or Sixty Injured—A Baltimore and Ohio Wreck—Casualties. CHICAGO, Oot. 21.—Five persons were killed and fifty or sixty injured in a railroad wreck at Monmouth, Ills., on the Burlington road. The Omaha and Denver fast express which left this city at 0:10 ran into an open switch and the entire train was thrown from the tracks. Engineer Emerson and the traveling engineer of the road, who had gone into the cab half an hour, were killed outright. A lady passenger was found pinioned under the trucks of the sleeper. She had evidently been hurled through a window by the crash. Her body was crushed into an unrecognizable mass. Near her were a man and woman both dead, under the sleeper. The train consisted of three sleepers, two chair cars, one smoker, one baggage, one express and two mail cars. The Sleepers Were Heavily Loaded, as were also the chair cars. Emerson, the engineer, was one of the oldest passenger engineers in the covmtry, and had been on this run for several months. The train was speeding along at tn^/ate of forty-five miles an hour when it struck the open switch. The engine dashed along on the spur track for a few yards when it turned over on its side, burying Emerson and the traveling engineer of the rotid beneath it. After the engine left the tracks the baggage car and the cars behind it were also hurled from the rails. Most of the passengers in the three sleepers had retired. The first intimation they had of danger was when the coaches crashed against each other. Men, women and children were hurled from their berths. The lights went out, leaving the ears in total darkness. A terrible panic ensued and women screamed frantically for help. It is said that none of the passengers in the sleepers were killed, but many of them were severely injured. DISASTER ON THE B. AND O. Train Going; Forty Miles an Hour Leavou the Track. WASHINGTON, Oct. a2.—The eastbound limited express from Chicago jumped the track a few miles west of Sir John's Run on the Baltimore and Ohio road about 2 p. m. The engine after leaving the track turned over. Engineer Buckles and Fireman Richards were killed; Postal Clerks Lippincott, Craig and Leavoy were injiired. Passengers in the two coaches and the two sleepers were not injured. A broken driving wheel on tiie engine caused the disaster. The train was running forty miles an hour when it left the track. CAUSES ALARM. MAIL DELIVERED TO FARMS. OrgnntfteA Efforts Being Mad* *.« Ext«n4 the Free Delivery Service. NEW YORK, Oct. 20. -Afl organized effort is under way among the farmers to secure from congress free mail deliv* eryin country towns. The Farmers' Alliance, Patrons of Husbandry and other orders are canvassing the matter. Letters have been written to congressmen in favor of the project and petitions to congress for free delivery are being circulated in many parts of the country. Fanners assert that a daily mail delivery at their door will add perceptibly to the money value of their farms and will be worth still more because it will keep them in touch with markets and the outside Avorld and rid life of its isolation and monotony. The farmers are writing to the agricultural press that this convenience would enable them qiiite generally to take a daily paper as well as to subscribe for the local papers more liberally. In the American Agriculturist for November Postmaster General Wanamaker states definitely for the first time that the experiment made by the post- office department for free delivery in farming districts shows that the increase of revenue more than pays increased expense. He believes that universal free delivery would therefore be eelf-sustaining. HAWJ86YE HAPPENINGS. WAS $99,999 SHY. The Dickens, Qftjr county, wants a bank.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 20. — Governor Prince, of New Mexico, has submitted his annual report to the secretary of the interior. In regard to statehood, Governor Prince says that the constitution was submitted to a vote of the people on Oct. 7, 1890, and it was defeated by a large majority. This action on the part of the people, the governor says, while peculiar, does not indicate a disinclination to assume the condition of statehood. He says that New Mexico should not be kept in the subordinate position of a territory, for the reason that she possesses the number of inhabitants, the resources and the taxable property. The total assessed valuation of the property of New Mexico in 1890 was $45,109,847, and of this $1,972,165 was exempt from taxation under territorial laws.
