information As the train bearing the wounded stopped at the station the crowd became denser and more excited and the po lice found it impossible to keep them from boarding the car Frantic men attempted to climb on the cars to look for missing friends but were pushed back Women with tearstained faces stood with clasped hands and watched each injured person talsen out The Engineers Wound Enginier Swope one of the oldest men on the road was taken to his home on Pine gtreet suffering it is feared with a frac tured skull A number of traveling men more or less hurt were taken to the hotel

this city on business and was in the third seat from the front end of tho ladies coach In front of mosat a lady and near her in a seat running lenghthwise were two children close to tho stove There were several ladies around me and all of them were liughing and talking Tho chil dren were looking out of the window and laughing with glee The Shock or Disaster The jar of the car told me it WM off the track and a moment later it plunged for ward and fell on its side I staggered to my first man soon found that I was not seriously hurt Near me were three women piled in a heap one almost doubled up another partially under a seat The car was full of dirt gravel and smoke I grabbed the woman that was on top of the heap and dragged her through the debris to the other end of tho car pushed my way out side and carrying her to the bank laid her down I ran back to tha car and was joined by a brave fellow whoso namo I dont know Fate of the Little Children I caught up another woman and carried her ont and started buck after another I found the conductor nbout midway the car under a seat and dragged him out But I could do no more the car was on fire When it struck the bonk the front end flattened down and took fire The little children who five minutes before had laughed so gleefully were held down by thereof and tho upturned stovo roasted them to death I suppose tho woman I left in the car was burned to death It was the most horrible thing I over wit nessed and I was the only one in the front end of tha car who escaped TELLER ON THEWINDOM BILL Ite Doesnt Like a Paragraph of Objections WASHINGTON CITY Jan Tel ler appeared before tho house committee on coinage weights and measures yesterday and made a loug argument against tbe Windom silver bill Senator Teller con tended that the Windom bill was illogical and a Wall street measure He had given a great deal of attention to the silver ques tion but had no personal interest in silver niinas So far as the Windom bill was con cerned Teller claimed that it had been prepared by men who had not studied the silver question by New York bankers and bankers who had not studied from a broad standpoint the financial question Teller stated that the treasury notes which the bill proposed to issue in return for de posits silver bullion made it appear as though silver were merely a commodity If the government recognized this principle concerning silver there was no reason why it should not be applied to pigiron If sil ver was denied access to the mints the price of gold would increase in the sama relation as corn increased in price when no wheat was milled Teller objected to nearly all the features of the bill and said it was wholly objectionable Passengers Hurt OMAHA Neb Jan queer accident occurred on tho Omaha and Council Bluffs Electric railroad yesterday afternoon Just as the train descended the incline from the bridge over the Missouri river tho carsbe gan to slide on the track They gained such momentum that when they reached a curve the motor car left the track and plunged down an embankment There were eighteen passengers on board at the time and all were more or less injured but none

Mostly in the Handwriting of Ah Sin Bad Faith Distinctly CliargeJ Against The AliaondEyeil Hxattvca Gives Us a Going Over In Unmitigated United Notes WASHINGTON CITT Jan reply to a resolution of the senate of the 8th inst the president yesterday sent to tho senate a port from the secretary of state with ac companying documents in relation to tha execution of the Chinese exclusion May 6 1882 and Oct 1 1SS8 The secre tary of state forwards all the correspondence which has taken place between the state de partment and tha Chinese government on this subject Under dato of Oct 10 1SSS tho Chinese minister complained that a number of Chinese laborers return certificate had been refused permission to land at Elan Francisco Tha state depart ment forwarded to the Chinese minister a copy of tlie law of Oct 1 St5S under which they wero excluded A ijuestion of Veraciiy Raised Jan 20 1SS9 the Chinese minister writes to Bayard complaining that this law is a violation of the treaty of 1SSO and then with true oriental courtesy proceeds to call the secretarys attention to interviews held with him during the negotiation of tho un ratifled treaty in which the secretary told the minister that his excellency the presi dent would veto any legisltitiou of congress which violated tbe existing treaty I there iore feel persuaded that in view of the pro vision of article 4 and of the assurances of tho American commissioner herein quoted I may rtily upon your interposition withhia excellency tho president with a view to having him recommend congress to undo the wrong und hardship which is being in flicted upon my countrymen In a reply to this letter under date of Feb 2 88CJ Bayard wrote I must assure you with great distinctness that you labor under misapprehension and that no such assurance was made or could have been made by re in tbe course of the conversa tion prior to the negotiation of the treaty Kind of Nailing Things Down In a Ureter dated Feb 25 1SS9 Chang Yen Hoon tbe Chinese minister wrote to Bay ard that he regretted that ho should havo written anything to cause Bayard embar rassment that he had not intended to hold him responsible for the action of congress or the president but he had understood Bayard to bo giring mo your view of how his ex cellency the president regarded tho proposed legislation then ponding in congress etc He did not understand however that this was made in the form of a promise He enclosed a memorandum of his interview with Iteyard attested by Shu Cheon Poii and D W Bartlett of the Chinese legation who were present In this memorandum Bayard is quoted as saying Unless you and I soon ajjree upon satisfactory meas ures in our negotiations congress will cer tainly laws regardless of the treaty stipulations Should such bo tha case they would violate the treaty and the president would of course veto them Bayard however advised that the wishes of congress be met Must Have Keen a Misunderstanding Proceeding the Chinese minister says fur ther tha t he was under tho impression that he could not discuss officially the presidents message to congress but as Bayard has stated ir his note that that message reached the irresistible conclusion that the passage of the aut of exclusion was in consonance with the expressed wishes of China he feels it his imperative duty to cuter his respect ful but earnest protest against any such as sumption The act he says was in direct opposition to tho wishes of China Bayard Explains Matters Tinder date of Feb 28 1889 Bayard wrote to the Chinese minister that he was not dis posed to question tho accuracy of tlia recol lection of the minister and the gentlemen of his suite He then says ia explanation the presidents signing the Scott bill thai the fact that the news of the rejection of the treaty between the United States and China came from Great Britain gave impetus to tbe pop alar belief that influences exterior to the two nations had been at work Under this condition of affairs the Scott bill was suddenly and without notico brought for ward ia congress and passed with a unanim ity in both houses which palpably rendered an interposition by a veto of the executive wholly futile Xlie Supremo Conrt Decision In a tetter written July S 1SS9 to Blaine the Chiaese minister speaks of tha decision 01 the supreme court of the United States in the Chiaese matter The supremo court he says lias decided that the act of October 18SS is in contravention of expressed stipu lations of the treaty but it is done ia the ex ercise cf the sovereign power vested in con gress end must be respected as the supreme law of the land The supreme court canno inquire whether the reasons for this action were good or bad The minister continues You will par don me Mr Secretary if I express my amazement that such a doctrine should published to the world by the august tri bunal i or whose members by personal ac quaintance I entertain such profound re spect It forces upon ma the conviction tha in the hree years which I have resided in this coantry I have not been able fully am correcrly to comprehend the principles anc systems of your great government In m country we have acted upon the conviction that where two nations deliberately and sol emnly entered upon treaty stipulations the thereby formed a sacred compact from which they could not be honorably dis charged except through friendly negotie tions and a new agreement Tlie Way It loots to Ah Sin He then asks Elaines interposition with the president to have the wrongs of the Chi nese righted He calls attention to the facts that ho existing treaty relat ions were brought about at the express solicitation of the United States action of congress is not justified by its con duct toward other nations nor by any action of the Chinese government action of congress is virtually a de nunciation of all existing treaties and an inviI tation to China to terminate all diplomatic and commercial relations j action of congress must he held to be ail affront to the government of China government of the United States must uccept accountability for all tho injuries I and dimages resulting from Cue enforcement of the act of congress i These five points the minister elaborates and argues at some length In conclusion he says he trust some way will be found hasty and unprovoked action of congress may be undone cannot but eel he says that if the late president had ollowed tha example of his predecessors residents Hayes and Arthurwhen it wasat emjited by congress to disregard treaty imputations a like happy result would have ollowed Another Whack at Congress VThen the treasury issued regulations gor ning the passage through the country of Chinese the new mini ster Taui Kwo Yin omplained thereof and questioned their le ality IVindom stated the grounds upon he made the regulations stating that he unregulated transit of these Chinese la xjrers would amount to nullification of all he acts on the subject Blaino sent AYin onis statement kf the minister stating that he secretary of the treasury would modify he regulations But this was not sat sfactory as the transportation compa lies in this country were unwilling to give the bond required and the lordship would remain Tho minister hen proceeds to rub it in by saying that the passage of the act of Oct 1 18S8 manifested an open disregard of reaty obligations on the part of the legisla ive department of the government of Jnited States If anything should occur ic says to make it appear that a similar spirit influenced the conduct of any of the executive departments of Vhat government ts effect would create upon my government I fear a most unfavorable impression THE MALTREATMENT OF FAUNCE Another Skirmish in the Scuute Over tlie Aberdeen Episode N CITY Jan resolution calling on tho United States mar shal for the northern district of Mississippi for a report on the maltreatment of Henry J Faunco not Fautz as stated in Ingalls nt Aberdeen Miss was taken up the senate yesterday to permit IValthall of Mississippi to speak thereon He insisted that congress had no jurisdiction over tho lubject but felt warranted in saying that af fair was simply the wanton conduct of a few persons and that it was disapproved by the community in which it occurred Speafc ng for himself and tho people of Mississippi and the south he condemned unqualifiedly and unreservedly the outrage on the secre tary of war and on Faunco As to Federal Interference VYalthall then discussed federal interfer ence in stato elections and 1he race question The professed purpose ot federal interfer ence was to secure fair counting of negro votes but it really meant to count that vote for the Republican party He deprecated ths passage of such a law it would lead to bitter strife a revival of antagonism and an in terruption to relations that now promised good to both races Walthall criticized all proposed remedies for race troubles includ ing deportation and disfranchisoment as Impracticable and impossible Ingallss Exasperating Comment Ingalls said he had no comment to make on tho eulogy pronounced on the people of Ab erdeen by Walthall except to say that it was in evidence that 300 or 400 of them stood by when Faunce was castigated without a word of protest or any attempt to interfere George challenged senators on ths Repub lican side to point out a clause in the consti tution which authorized the federal govern ment to take jurisdiction of crimes commit ted within a state and not against tho laws of the state Reagan condemned the outrage at Aber deen but denied the right of the govern meat to take cognizance of it CONGRESSIONAL TRANSACTIONS The und House Passes a Couple of Rills the Senate Talks Politics WASHINGTON CITT
