WATER-TOWN is no doubt that the wreck at Adams Center, on the Rome, Watertown Ogdensburg Railroad, this morning, was the work of a discharged railroad employe or some person uialiuiouuly inclined, and thut his intention was to cause a terrible catastrophe. The switch svas left locked last night, and the light was burning. At about this morning the train for Niagara Falls, which makes only one stop be- tween Watertown and Richland, ran into the switch andscollided with sev- eral freight cars. The switch had been opened and locked, and the'light had been pnt out. If the enirineer had not been running check it is probable that t.iere would have been loss of lii'e, and many would have been injured. ______ To-Ony's Itncew.

There will be a lecture on "Life and Customs in the Arctic Regions" at the Methodist Church next Monday night. See notice in Monday's paper." The Behrtnc Olnpnte. By Cable and Associated Press.) LONDON, Aug. Salisbury's last dispatch to Blaine relative to the Beh- ring Sea dispute bears date of August 2nd. After quoting from historical documents, the dispatch concludes: These show that England refused to admit any part of Russia's claim, contained in the ukase of 1821, to the marine jurisdiction and exclusive right of fishing throughout the whole extent, from Behring Straits to the fifty-first parallal; also that the conve.ntion of 1825 was regarded by both eides as a renunciation on the part of Russia of its claim in its entirety, and that though Behring Straits were and specifically provided for, Behriug Sea was not known by that name, but was regarded as a part of the Pacific Ocean. Her Majesty's Government alwavs c'.ainied the freedom of navigation and fishing in Itehring Sea outside of the limit of a marine league from the coast. It is impossible to admit that our right to fish- for seals in the high seas can be held to be abandoned by a nation from the mere, fact that for a certain number of years it has not suited the subjects of that nation to exercise such rin-ht. It must bo re- membered that the existence of British Columbia as a colony and the develop- ment of the colony's shipping interests are comparatively recent. If the U. S. Government continues to differ with Great Britain as to the legality of the recent captures, Her Majesty's government is ready to re- fer the question, with the issues, to impartial arbitration.

By Associated Press.l FORTIMND (Or.l, Aug. collis- sion occurred this morning on the Un- ion Pacific'line about eight miles from this city, between a special carrying the Oregon Press Association and a freight traio....No one was seriously injured.
