' HAVERHrLtvMnss., Jan. 11. — A frightful sccident ocmrrwl to the Portland exprtes which left Boston at 1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. The Bc^ne of thedieaHier was near the Haverhlil bridge which spans tho Mer- rimaorlTBr between Hiverhlil and Bradford. Tho train consisted of eight cars and an engine, In charge of Conductor \Voy- mouth ami Engineer French. Tb« train does not utop at Bradford, and was going at great speed. The Georgetown branch train was standing on the track near the water- tank bous", at tbe Bradford end of the bridge, waiting for tbe express train to para orer to HarorhllL As the expn.'ira rounded tbe curve two cars left toe rail*, and went crashing into and demolished the walar-lank house,, .In this house a number of section hands were eatlitg dinner. Mr. J. O'Brien, a retired merchant of Bradford, was talking with the section. hands, and wan killed, together with William Taylor, one of the laborers. The car thnt crashed Into the tank house knocked the foundations out, letting the heavy tank down, crashing through the top of the car and doing fearfnl work within. Tbe next car behind telescoped the one ahead Of It, adding to tlio havoc. Tbe killed and wounded were mostly In these two cars. The cars behind the^e two ran down alongside the Georgetown train, barely escaping a collision with the engine of that train, The p«Oplo in the smoker had a frightful experience. One of tho wheels on the front truck bruke, find the car bum pod against thsr end of the bridge, canning It to careen, and then ran upon tbe bridge for some distance upon i he sleepers, then careened the other way and Icanud rtgalnat tbe Iron work of the nido of thi bridge. • Tbe passengers, of whom there were .about thirty, found themselves at the top of the car, while U soemed to those who had presence of mind enough to think, that the car wan tumbling off thn bride to tho river below. Tbe passengers managed to crawl out, none being very seriously Injured. As soon as they reached solid ground such as were able rushed back i> ml helped those who were Imprisoned in the wrecked- curs. Tbe entire force of physicians In tl'e city wore summoned by telephone and were quickly on hand, and the wounded wera cared for as noon as released. Thn list of killed foots up nine, as follows: L. B. Adams, Newton, Mass.; C. N. Cole, wife and child, Lawrence, Masx. ; Josephus Blmw, of the firm of Bhaw & , Thayer, Boston; Clarence Hazlewood, Boston; A. B. Walker, Harrison, Mo.; Wm. Taylor ind John O'Brien, of Bradford, Moss. The following is a list of the wounded: At city hospital— Goo. B. Wentworth, Dover, N. H., scalp wounds, shoulder blade broken; Rubecca McKay, Bomervllla, N. :B., leg fruolurod; Prod McKuou, 'newsboy, Bomer- ville, Mass., Hovore contusions on bead; Niliw Bolin, Brockton, bead and arm Injured; Hugo Slettingren, Brockton, back and leg injured; VV. P. Kimballof Kimball Broa., Boston) leg fractured; John Madden, of Bradford, compound fracture of right leg; Mr. Hart, of Portland, Me., brulned arm and scalp wounds; Dennis Shannon, of Bradfordi feot and leg badly crushed auds alp wounds, probably fritally injured; an unknown woman, apparently 83 years old, with dark hair, brt'iiat-pin marked "J. ," Injured on the head and intomally, probably fatally; Mrs. John P. Felt, of Waltham, Mass., not seriously injured. Two other wounded are at residences, and a largo number of slightly wounded continued their journey, and their names wore not learned. In all about fifty were wounded. The accident is supposed to have been occasioned by a switch rod breaking after the engine and three forward oars had passed over tbe switch. None ot the wheels aro broken and the journals are perfect. Tbe switch and Its connections were so badly broken that at present the exact truth cannot be aacortalned. The train was one ot tho finest equipped on the road and carried the Westlnghouio . air automatic brake. After tbo train broke In two the brake on the smoker was automatically applied, and but for this It Is thought tbe flar would have fallen upon the ice in the river 100 feet below. Tbe bridge was « strong one of Iron and was not Injured by the strain. Tbe oars had the Baker steam" beater, and therefore did not catch fire. LATER.— The cause of the accident was a broken flange on the forward right-band truck wheel of the smoking car. A careful , Inspection by General Manager Fnrber revealed the fact that a section of tbe flange was missing, the hreak evidently resulting from a defective casting. BURNING OF AN ALMS HOUSE.

COMMISSIONER EDGERTON TELLS HOW IT EXSTS'ON HOPE: Th« 8*me Being Incited by Civil Service Reform — Two Reports <ro tha Larasnr C»«e— Need of More Soldiers' Home*— Fluanr-IM Hills Introduced— Incidents of the U«b«te«— Notei— Capital Brlafi. , Jan. II.— Thonttentlou of Mr. KJgerton, of the civil service commission, wni called to the statement thai only 1,259 appointments have been mads from its certifications since the civil service commission was organized, and of this number about one In eight have been women, and that the number of applicant who have had their names put on the eligible remoter ii at least fifty for every appointment made. To this Mr. EJgertoa laid: "Without undertaking to give the exact figures, I can >ay that tha statement Is practically correct." "And how does it happen, then, that so few-appointmenta have been modef "The answer is a very simple on* There were no more appointments made, for the simple reason that there were no more vacancies. Appointment! are only made to flit vacancies and vacancies are only created by three causes — death, resignation, removal. The total number of vacancies arising from the operation of those three causes in the period indicated has been the number named. And to my mind, to be (rank about It, this fact of Itself calls attention to wlmt appears to me to be the greatest weakness in the civil-service system. The eligible registers are filled out of all proportion -to possible appointments. The effect upon the young men and women of the country is bad. The competitive examination! hold out hqpes to hundreds of worthy young people of both sexes which can never be realised. Fifty to one is a very small estimate of the ratio of successful applicant* upon the eligible registers to appointees, and forty-nine ' persons who are not appointed are grievously disappointed. They are in many instances induced by the hope of appointment to turn their attention from regular business pursuits where they would be successful to the Iguls fatuns of the government service. Their names go upon the eligible register and they live In hope. They don't enter Into other pursuits, as they are allured by the possibility of government service. There have been registers with the names of seventy-five persons upon them, all batween the average grade of 80 and 100, from which there has not been an appointment in two years. The highest number ever appointed to the department service In Washington under the civil service certification was 450, and these were appointed directly before the Democratic board came Into office. There have been years when only fifty-three persons were appointed In the executive departments in Washington from the certifications. It Is to be said that the grade of successful appli cants upon Ineligible registers is constantly Improving, and that a whole register will now be necessarily filled with applicants who pass at grade which you would not have reached in the early examinations. But this dots not help them to secure places. This Is all wrong aud it ought to be corrected. The examlno- 'tlohs should be restricted so that they will bear some more just ra.io to the number of probable appointments. The young people of the country ought not to be misled by false hopes. There are names on the eligible registers now to last an Indefinite period. But as it is, the answer to your inquiry why more have not baeu appointed, la because there were no more vacancies to be filled." DOINGS IN SENATE AND HOUSE. More Talk on Education— Bills to Stralght- : .«n Out the Finances. Crrr, Jan. 11.— Petitions were presented in the sens' i Tuesday In favor of Prohibition in the District, a permanent exposition at the capital, and i against the admission of Utah as a state.

THE NATIONAL SOLDIERS' HOMES.' Mora of Them Needed If All the Disabled V«ts Are To Ba Cared for. WASHINOTOH CITY, Jan. 11.— The house Tuesday received tha annual report of the board of managers of the National home for disabled volunteer soldiers.

Chandler on the Direct Tax. WASHINGTON Crrr, Jan. 1L— In th» debate In the senate on tbe refunding of the direct tax to the states, Chandler said the tax was In many Instances collected from individuals, and he thought it unfair to now pay- It to the statoe.

The harsh policy of the government In Ireland has brought abundant sympathy to the side of tbe home rulers, bat sympathy is not what they are just now most In need of. They need men; they need Sexton, Harrlns- ton, Sullivan, O'Brien, and others whom services it now appears they can not count upon, and probably before the beginning of the session on Feb. 9 not a fbw of tbe members who are now relied upon to be present will occupy oellt In jail. Saxton In all likelihood will not be able to take, his seat next month, it be ever does, and assuming that Harrington's appeal is delayed In ita argu- mentfortwd months he will be removed from the house at tbe very time when be should be constant in bis attendance; for go to jail be must. Sullivan and O'Brien will by that time have been released, but the chances of the latter, if not both, for confronting another prosecution, with almost certain conviction are painfully plain. The sentiment Involved In the persistent defiance of the press and other clauses of the coercion act Is nothing if not patriotic, but the gentlemen 'Indulging In such acts should consider whether they, can not better serve their country in parliament than in jail The Kaiser Doesn't Show Himself. LoHDO.f, Jan. 11.—It la stated npon the highest authority that tbe illness of the emperor of Germany, though painful and causing him a great deal of inconvenience, is not at all dangerous, and causes not .the slightest alarm to his physicians and attendants.
