Vvrtt Person* Burned to Death and i Tweutv Other* injured*.. Minn., Jan. 15.—A fright- railroad accident occurred on the Pacific seven miles east of Brainerd. The second section of No. 8, with the Andrews Opera company on board left West Superior at 12 o'clock p, m. for Grand Forks. About half a mile this side of Jonesville, at 8:50 a. m. the train struck a broken rail. The engine and baggage car passed over in safety, but the sleeping car was derailed and. ran some 800 feet on the • ties when it toppled over, breaking loose from the train, and went down an embankment some five feet high, lying on her side. The Pullman conductor, Herbert C. Scott, was one of the first to get outside, and when he did so no fire was • ..sible, but as soon as the windows were i •/ oken to liberate those inside, the 1'ames shot out and in a very short time The Car Was Enveloped. Mrs. Ed Andrews aud Miss Lillie Wallace were burntd to death and over a score of otluvs burned and bruised. The night bein „' the coldest of the season, the therm < meter reaching 46 below, the suffering of the injured was terrible. The accident was an unavoidable one, the rail breaking some five yards from the end, the piece breaking in five pieces. Conductor Ball, who was in charge of the train, says the sight was the most appalling he had ever witnessed. The shrieks and moans of the women could be heard half a mile away. Many of the women were nude, but were wrapped up as they were taken out. The bodies of the two victims wero burned 11;->,ud all recognition of human beings, tl:e heads, legs arid arms beiag entirely gone. The members of the company lost all their worldly goods except stage clothes, including musical instrumenty, watches and money. TRAIN DERAILED. 'iMPKftTINtNT CHILIANS, Officials nt Washington 8«f!»ri»«i ty Anotlmr InBultlnff Actlrtft. WABHH-cn-oN, Jan, 16, — Secretary Tracy made public the following die* pat6h,which he had received frotn <?6ta- snander Evans, of the United States stenmer Yorktown, now at Valparaiso, Chili, in regard to the Bahnacedist refugees put aboard that vessel by United States Minister Egan and the Spanish minister: "The American minister informs me that the Chilian minister of foreign affairs has d'-pi-ed his mind about refugees now i-n the Yorktown, and that they may be taken out of any merchant vessel touching at a Chilian port by the local authority. Arrangements had been made for all of them to sail, but this change of base on the part of the Chilian minister of foreign affairs compels me to keep them, which crowds me very much. Shall I land them at Callao, Peru, or Molendo, Peru? No steamers from here go direct to neutral territory. This unexpected act of the Chilian minister of foreign affairs is due. he states, in part to my saluting the Spanish minister when he came on board to deliver two refugees. I have requested the American minister to say to the minister of foreign affairs that I am responsible to my own government and not to that of Chili in such matters, and that I will not accept it. His action seems unworthy of the representative of a serious government." Surprise to Officials. The action on the part of Senor Pereira, the Chilian minister of foreign affairs, in deciding that the refuges might be taken out of any merchant vessel touching at a Chilian port by local authority, was a great surprise to the officials in Washington. They had been led to believe from the fact that refugees were allowed to go on board the Yorktown without molestation -that they would bo permitted to leave the country without further hindrance. This belief Avas no doubt shared by the United States officials in Chili, for the navy department had been informed by Commander Evans that the refugees were to sail on their way to Europe.

LA CROSSE,Wis.,Jan. 16.—The passenger train going south on the Viroqua branch of the Milwaukee road was wrecked two miles south of Westby. The baggage car and one coach were thrown down a bank twenty feet, and the former took fire. "While the passengers were trying to get themselves from the wreck of the coach there was a dreadful scene of fear and excitement, which was greatly added to by the groans of the injured. There was a large load of passengers, most of them being Masons, returning from the dedication of a new temple at Sparta. Successful effort was made to keep the fire from reaching the coach. Meanwhile it was being cleared as fast as possible. All were taken out. None were dead, bnt fifteen wtve wounded, who were t, km to farm houses, while physicians •v i-n-procured from Sparta and Vir- H.

YANKTON, S. D., Jan. 15.—The state world's fair commission passed a resolution requesting Governor Mellette to call a special session of the legislature to make an appropriation for South Dakota's exhibit. The sentiment throughout the state is largely in favor of this plan over any other suggested, and it is considered the most convenient and best way to raise the funds needed. Governor Mellette was requested by wire to attend but couldn't. It is believed by JUewvbera of the commission and other prominent citizens that the governor wflTcall ft special session and that the appropriation will be made with no opposition.

At 11 o'clock the mayor of London received a dispatch from the Prince and Princess of' Wales. It only said: "At a quarter past nine this morning our. beloved son passed away." The great bell of St. Paul's tolled forth the news to the waiting city and the announcement was immediately posted at the Mansion house. The flags on the tower of 'London and on all public buildings were placed at half mast, while at Windsor castle the half-masted flag also gave notice to the people of the royal borough of the calamity that had befallen the royal house. The whole country is in mourning. The news came with a shock upon the people as the early morning bulletin had encouraged the hope of a better result. The news was posted at the Marlborough house, the London residence of the Prince of Wales at 9:25, just ten minutes after the death of the duke. The crowd in waiting, largely composed of working people, gave vent to loud expressions of grief, and of pity and loyalty for the queen, the Prince and Princess of Wales and Princess May. The Pall Mall and adjoining streets were thronged. Hundreds of well dressed women and men, evidently of the nobility and gentry, crowded'along with common people, the sidewalk and roadways, and these were jammed with carriages. The news spread rapidly through the West End, and everywhere there was the same expression of grief and sympathy and loyalty. A dispatch from Sandringham says that when the last moments came the Prince and Princess of Wales, the Prince and Princess of Teck. and the Princess Victoria Mary, commonly known as the Princess May, betrothed of the dying prince, were groxiped at the bedside. anew* rdilroad corporation organised fot the construction 6f a belt line at Chicago which was to become a part of the Chicago, St. Paul and Ran- sae City* system. Among the incor- porutors were mentioned several' St, Paul gentlemen, stockholders in the Kansas City. Upon investigation this enterprise turned out to mean much more than was indicated by the statement first sent out from Chicago. It ia a reorganisation of whole Kansas City system, which will be known under a new name, that of Chicago Great Western—not Chicago and Great Western, as stated. The line, according to the articles of incorporation, is to be constructed from Hammond, Ind., to a point near Evanston, to the north of Chicago, thus forming a belt line about that city. But this, it seems, did not convey tl\e real object of the scheme. The new corporation, the Chicago Great Western, is incorporated with a capital of $90,000;000. The present Chicago, St. Paul and Kansas City system will probably be leased by the new corporation, and will be operated under the new name. The junior securities of the two corporations may be exchanged, while the first mortgage bonds of the Kansas City are still provided for —that is, the details of the plan for taking care of them have not yet been completed. A. B. Stickney, chairman of the board of the Kansas City, is now in the East perfecting the details of the new deal.

The dead prince was educated at Trinity college, Cambridge, and Heidelberg university. Previous to entering college Prince Albert Victor and his brother, Prince George, passed their examinations for the royal navy, aud they both served the two years term as naval cadets on board H. M. S. Britannia, the cadet training ship for the royal navy, lu 187!) the two princes went on a tour round the world. The line of succession, owing to the death of Prince Albert Victor, descends through the Prince of Wnlt-s to his feccond son, Pririce George of Wales. The hitter's constitution, though not strong, is said not to be as feeble as that of his elder brother. Among his familiars he was known as Prince Kddie, to the people he was more generally known by his nickname of "Collars and Cuffs." MANNING IS DEAD. The Convention Contest Said to I-lo Between These Citieu. ST. PAUL, Jan. 15.—A Dispatch special from Washington says: The convention contest has narrowed down to St. Paul aud Cincinnati. The triumvirate, Hill, Gorman and Brice, are for Cincinnati. It "is likely that the entire West will combine for St. Paul. Milwaukee would be- a strong competitor, but for the fear of the well known Cleveland sentiment there fostered by Vilas. The Pacific slope will cast a few complimentary votes for San Francisco and will ultimately come to St. Paul. Can Take Care of the Cbfivention. WASHINGTON, Jan. 15.—Senator Davis has received a letter from Chairman Clarkson, of the Repiiblican national committee, in regard to the hotel accommodations in Minneapolis for the Republican national convention. In this letter Mr. Clarkson states very emphatically that there is no question about the capability of Minneapolis to take care of the convention, both as regards hall and hotels. To Change the Opening Date. WASHINGTON, Jan. 15.—The secretary of the interior sometime ago indicated that the Sisseton and Wahpeton Indian reservation, would be turned open for settlement April 15. The secretary now favors opening the ceded lands for settlement April 1, and issuing a proclamation to thut effect right away. Representative Pickler has writen to friends in the vicinity of the reservation to find out if it will be best to open the reservation at that time. He is of the opinion that two weeks later would be much better for the ^people who intend, to go upon the lands, but unless there is opposition to the programme proposed by the secretary it will be acted upon and the programme will be published in a very few days. . w, J.
