AN OPERATOR'S FATAL FAILURE, ^ The Extensive stock Yards Plant of the Ane;lo-American Provision Co. Attacked by FIro and ONeurly a Million Dollars' Worth of Property Dostroyod. Zanesville, O., Sept, 29,-One of the worst freight wrec1{3 in the history) of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad occurred ten miles west of here at midnight. Eight mon were killed; one,terribly injured, and property to the amount of $100,000 destroyed. The iwreck'was caused by the failure i of i Francis Keely, operator at Blackhand, to deliver orders to an east hound freight, side tracking it at thatstation until a west hound freight passed. The two trains collided on a sharp; curve ^ust outside of a dense wood and neither engineer saw the other train until within a few yards of it. The engineer and fireman on the east bonnd tr^in, jumped, the latter escaping ; uninjured, but the former, John Kemp of Newr; ark, had a leg ,cut, off near his body and is .not expected to- live. The engineer and firemant of the west boqnd train were instantly killed, the former being horribly mangled by the splintered cars which- went into the tender. His blood' and brains were scattered over the ground for several feet aronhd,' The fireman was caught between bhe engine and tender, and crushed to a. pulp. When :taken'out he was roasted by the fire from' the engines. The list of killed is as follows: JOHN BUGKIUOHAM. engineer.

Bamtng of the Anglo-American Provlalon Company's Plant at Chicago,    i Chicaqo, Sept. S^O,-More than one-half of the extensive stock yards plant andproperty .of the Anglo-American Provision company was destroyed by fire. The most conservative estimate of the loss is |7O0,O00, the highest nearly 11,000,000. Prior .to ; its acquisition a few months since brtbe English syndicate, with a stock and bonded capital �ot |) ^500,000, the property was owned by the 'Fowler Brothers. Considerable mystery surrounds: the orisin of {the fire, .Flames were discovered in the engine room shortly after la, m^, and,the private, fire company, maintained; by; the Englishmen^ fought them for some time before calling for reinforcements from the city. Before these arrived the flttmes had spread to the immense packing house, ihence to ware-houses Ejp^ancT, B, i In the2packingi houses:there ^were 9,00ft dressed hogs which had been slaughtered during the past two days, wtaile.on: one fiooKi of the ad join in�r;t warehouse were '^OOyOQO pounds of sausage in proce.s8i of curing,- G;i the other-floors of this; and adjomiug warehouses .were 'Stored; the product of; 90,000 ^ hogs, together with; an: immense quantity of .beef;: With this material to feed-on theifire  roged furiously�for;houi-8,"and although twenty-six of the city , engines were'called into requisition, it ^was not until late in the afternoon that it was brought undercontrol;; At one - time it- was J feared sthat. the cbnflagration would cover a greater por-; tioa of the packing house;distriot>Sev?; ;eral thousand live /hogs! were :with,difficulty saved from the warehouses.

' - Extraordinary conditions will govern the' senate during at least the first part of the second-session of congress. The Republican members of the senate have pledgedithemselves to vote on a proposition to change the, rules of the senate for the express purpose of making possible the passage of the federal election bill. The proposition will meet with whatever obstructive opposition the Democratic senators can bring forward. It is a matter of history that the Democratic members of the senate at one time were two and one-half months on a proposition to organize the senate, . Then it the proposition to es-tablish a rule under which the previous question , can be called is adopted a Democratic senator has figured that the entire time of the senate from Dec. 7 to March 4 can be consumed in roll calls on amendments to the election bill offered for purposes of obstruction. So if the Bepnolican senators adhere to their determination to press the con-Bideration of the election bill, much business must suffer. A great deal of time will be consumed in the CDUBideration of the annual apr propiiation bills. Neglect of this legislation would necessitate calling an extra session of congress in March or April. The time consumed in consideration of the election bill and the appropriation billB may operate to the exclusion of the bills whicn have passed the house and are now on the senate calendar. A bill to establish a limited postal telegraph has been reported favorab ly fromcommittee andis on the calendar. Thei;baakruptcy: bill adopted, by the commercial convention at Minneapolis passed the house; and; was reported to the senate with a great; many modifications, but under the supervision of Col. Torrey,ithe author of the billi and carrying, the. idea advocated in the commercial convention, It goes over until the qezt session., Nearly Sf.OOO bills and resolutions that were reported ,to the house from committees during this session of congress failed of passage and remain on the house calendar. , ' tHB.CONOBESiiJONAI.
