BUFFALO, March coroner's in- quest on the Hamburg art-uk-nt on the Lake Shore was begun bore yesterday at tho eor- ouor's court room. Conductor John W. Houghtaling, who was in charge of the wrecked train, was the first witness. He testified that he has been employed as a Lake Shore conductor for thirty-five years He was In charge of train 32 which left Cleve- land at p. m. on the 0th inst, fifteen minutes late. At Brie the train was attached to engine 34, Edward Mooney, engineer, and fi. J. Bond, fireman. Upon hearing the engineer's bell at Dunkirk he gave the signal to ahead and stepped on to the forward platform of the first roach. Tho train slacked and then broke in two. Tho bump- ers between the day coach and the first sleeper were Miller drawhead on the day coach and the Cowles on the Wagner coach. The witness went to where the break oc- curred, found a brakernan wounded the Cowles coupler, which teemed to be firmly set. Both the air-hose and the stpam-heatmg apparatus were broken. Upon the signal of the witness the engineer backed up and the dranhfod looker] firmly. said the witness, "that they were firmly locked.'' The Miller bumper was all right. The Cowles bumper was turned out after cars Lad parted. to continued Conductor Hough tali ng, "the oil man came along and I him if he had air hose connections. He and I said go and get some. He came with some anil prepared to put the hose on. He got under the cars and I said you can get out; we have bix cars with air on and we will go on without it The five ears in the rear were crippled cars. I then walked to within a oar or half-car length of the engine and naid to the engineer: 'Ed, we have six cars with air, go ahead. He started the train and run along all right; nothing out of the way. "The first intimation I had that the train was Apart was from Miller's omnibus man, Mr. Coi ey. He said the tram was broken in two. When he informed me I was in the middle of the third coac-h. There was one car between where the break occurred and tho car I was in. I was on the side of the rar I don't know which side of the car the 6 line was on. I sat about throe or four seats from the rear. Mr, Sullivan, a conductor on the road, sat with me. hen Covey informed me of the break I immediately got up and said to Mr. Covey, is the head Tt-11 him I want him.' T went into the coach behind and looked out. I could wee nothing of tbe rear portion of the train. The track is straight there for quite a distance, probably two or three what did you "I of the bell cord and pulled it." "How m.my "I dont know, three or four times, perhaps. We stopped a very quick stop. An HI tempt to pull the bell is not al- ways definite, H-S it is difficult to tell whether or not engineer gHls the signal. He is supposed to answer the bell with his whistle, c-o.iie are prompt in doing so and sometimes we get no "1 jumped ulY and saw the other cars com- ing. I then to the engineer to go ahead, both with my lamp and my voice, as loud as I could. He did not start and the cars ran toother.'1 The witness then described the crash, the telescoping of two cai's, etc. He said he was six cai's back of the engine and did not know whether or not the engineer tried to start ahead. Coroner you swear that you id not pull that automatic; brake cord on the ar whL'h you wore on; "I did 'not pull that cord. I did not ouch it." "When you left Dunkirk did you notify the 9uHman conductor, Feat, that his cars had o air or "No, I did not." "When this man got the air brake connec- ions why did not you permit him to put them "Because I considered the train perfectly .afe, that the couplings were safe, and be- cause it would have caused a delay of seven r ton minutes." "If thone connections had been put on it 'ould have lessened the liability of accident, itf "Yes, if everything had been all "If repairs had been made to those cars, would not they have worked so as to top those rear "It is reasonable to suppose that they would ave stopped the cars if everything had been 11 right." you left Dunkirk, what other pre- autions did you take to protect your train ,nd your passengers, than telling your tiginoer that you had cats with "I took no other prouuiitions." "Why did j'ou not take other "Because I considered tho train all right, with the exception of the air brakes." "You did not inform your "No, I do not think I The witness then detailed the duties of saying that it was the duty of the rear brakemen to watch and see if anything jccurred. The witness, in answer to Coroner Kennedy, said if ho had notified the rear irakeman-io on the roar end of the Sa- iiui and the head brukcntan to stay on the rear day coach, the accident, could aave linen prevented; if he hat! desired the witness could ha .Te cut out t lie injured coach and pltiCftl it on the rear of the train, bu) the other car still have been in its damaged condition. The witness acknowl- edged that tuere were threo remedies or precautionary measures of which he did not avail indicated by the coro- ner's questions. THE ENGINEER'S STORY, Edward Mooney, the engineer, next tosti fled that he has been an engineer on the Lake e about nineteen years. He ran trnii No. 12, bound from Krlo to Buffalo. Tb train le'tl Erie at .V57 p. minute late. There was no trouble with thp train between Erie and Dunkirk. At Dunkirk a stop was made for water; the fireman rang the bell, showing that the engiue was read; to start. The conductor signalled to gc .head. The witness tried to start the train but could not. Ihe spot where made at Dunkirk is a hard to start On the second attempt to sturt th.' train broke in two. He was told by oil mai that the brake-hose had parted and that h (the Oil mau) was going to put iu new h Conductor continued Mooney came forward to within about a car aud half pf engine, gave the signal to go ahead at the S4ine time -saying: "You have th brakes on seven ears, go ahfad- This, hose can1! be fixed." When about wart of Haiubur Mooney heard one tap the to which he paU no attention. When about one and a half or two miles east of West Hamburg station he heard another tap of bell. He stepped back to the back part of the cab, turned around to look at his fire- man, who was below him. While in that po- feition the automatic brakes were applied from the train, the jar throwing him into the front part of the cab. By the tine the wit- ness got his hand on the throttle the train was at a standstill. He shut the steam off, opened tbe cylinder cocks to relieve the pres- sure in the cylinders, and dropped the lever forward to full-stroke position. Mooney looked out of the cab window, Conductor Sullivan ran up to engine and said. "Mooney, pull out or the will be into you." Mooney pulled the engine wida and said to Sullivan, "I am perfectly powerless as the brakes have been applied from the train and I cannot release them." While trying to start train tbe rear cars crashed into the forward cars, but did not move the forward cars orer two feet, show- ing that the brakes were on when the cars crashed together. The jar sent the engine forward, breaking thedrawhead between the tender and the forward baggage car, show- ing that there was a bare possibility that be could have pulled away with the six cars if the brakes had not been set Engineer Mooney then explained in detail the operation of the air-brakes. In answer to Cjroner Kenney Mooney stated that, in his opinion, if the conductor had permitted the oil inspector to put on the new rub- ber air-bobe, aud the break had occurred, the two sections would not have been fifty ttpart when they stopped; that was one rem- edy the conductor did not avail himself of. It was not necessary to create a straight cur- rent of air under the car. All that was nec- estarb was for Conductor Houghtaling to have tlie new air-hose put on the cars, and as an extra precaution to attach safety chains. Those appliances are always carried on an engine so as to be easily obtained If needed. The witness did not see Conductor Houghtal- signal to go ahead (after the break was iscovered) as it was impossible for him to ee it, the engine being around the curve and ho train being on the curve. After hearing he tap of the bell only a few seconds lapsed until the air-brakes were set. Coroner think that if the tew air hose had been put on at Dun- :irk this accident never would have oc- Engineer would have spoiled .11 thu possible chances of a collision occur- ing." Engineer Mooney stated that the train was .inning probably at the rate of about forty- hroe miles an hour when the break occurred. "here is a down grade and he had lessened he amount of steam after passing Lake View, where the grade is steepest. Had the air brakes not been applied there would have wen u possibility that the witness could have tar ted and got the forward seotion away rom the rear cai's which were approaching; ie could have got the cars started at a low peed bo that tlie crash would not have Token thu platforms of the car or derailed he cars. The inquest will be continued to-day. DO YOUR LAM PGHIWIN EYS THJE RIGHT ONES' :r.PITTSBURGH, A LIMIT WANTED 4 BEYOND WHICH SENATORIAL PER- SONALITIES MUST CEASE. Salaries of District Judges.

Mr. Call'i Aliened Interpolation of The Recoi-d au Intereatlng Deba'.3 In the Manly View of the Caie by Senator the House. WASHINGTON, Maivh the senate yesterday Mr Hoar called up the resolution of the committee on privileges and elections to eliminate from The Record sentences in- terpolated by Mr. Call m the report of his remarks in debate with Mr. Chandler some weeks ago. Mr. George said the resolution was without a precedent. The debate m question had been characterized by extreme acrimony and bitter personal allusions. He argued that while there was a verbal change in Mr. Call's remarks there was no change of meaning. He admitted that Mr. fall's reference to "Banquo's ghost'1 was in bad taste. There hud been a time when personalities ill the senate had led to personal conflict. But now there was no safer place in God's creation r'or a man who desired to insult another with impunity. It was no evidence of want of courage that a senator about whom insulting language hud been used on the floor did not call the speaker to a personal account. How then was the senator from New Hampshire in- jnrefU Why, in the fact that he hod not the tish woman's opportunity to blackguard back. Mr. Hoar so id that the senator from Mississippi misunderstood the resolution. He himself acquitted the senator from Florida of any desire to escape censure or responsibility. He did not think it true that there was no substantial change made in the remarks. Mr. Eustis said that tho order asked by the committee implied a censure. Mr. Edmunds asked Mr. Eustis whether he rtefeneed the propriety of printing a para- graph which had not teen uttered in the presence of the senator to whom it alluded. Mr Eustis wanted to know what the com- mittee had found Mr. C'all guilty of. Cer- tainly not on the falsification of the record, or that he had violated the custom of the sen- ate, for on this the committee was absolutely biient. There wus not, he said, a single ex- aggeration in what was inserted in The Rec- ord, as compared with what was publicly ut- fo-rud on the floor. The language was not the same, but the was the sajne, although he confessed that the language in- serted in The Record was pmbably a little more flowery than the language uttered on the floor. Mr. Edmunds illustrated the question by saying: "I might say on the floor of the senate that I believed that toe senator (Mr. Eustis) misrepresented the state of Louisiana, and that it' tin-re hud been au honest vote, an honest count in that state, the senate should not have tho pleasure of the senator's pres- ence. Here Mr. Eustis interrupted to inquire: "But do you miike that Mr. make it because I be- lieve it. Mr. not because it's true. Mr. because it is true, as I believe Now if 1 make that statement in the and if to-morrow there appears in The Record an additional statement that this was accomplished in some way by the action of t ie senator himself, and that with bloody hands and nicked intentionsholmd managed, by fraud and violence, to construct a legisla- ture of that character, 1 suppose my friend from Louisiana nuuld say that all that had been said yesterday, and that it was very proper for me, behind his back, to have it in- serted in Tho Record. Mr. Edmunds was continuing when he was stopped by a point of order from Mr. Daniel, who asked that Mr. Edmunds' words bo taken down. Mr. Daniel said he understood the senator from Vermont to impute distinctly to the scnntor from LoulMniin the defense of miinler, i'lid ii to that language that he took exfuitti-iii, on the that no sen- ator had a l-n impute wrong to another. A sentence written out, by thu official re- porter having iK'cn read Mr. Daniel said that these were not the words to which he took exception. Later on M r. Daniel said that as it was dif- ficult to find tlie objectionable sentence he would not press the matter. Mr. Edmunds proceeded to explain the point of the argument to which he applied his allusions to the Louisiana election. He said Mr Call had in a moment of warmth or heat so forgot himself fo cause to be print- ed mi apparently carefully drawn tip state- ment imputing to the senator from another state (ami in new language) a crime a con- certf-d and systematized crime He thought that the senator from Florida had so tar transgressed the right of correction, and even of embroidery that he stand up like a man ami take whatever was im- plied in the resolution, saying that that sort of thing should not be done any more. Mr Daniel said that the question was one which addressed itself to the sense of honor of the senate. He hod beard the remarks made by the senator from Florida, and he did not regard them as coming within the pale of parliamentary privi- lege. He went farther than the sen- ator from Massachusetts (Mr. Hoar) In his idea of the ot pnrlianvntary privi- lege of senators He conceived that the neii- ute was the grandest deliberative body that the sun had ever shone upon, and in his judg- ment the rules of order and the decorous procedure that governed the supreme court should not be more, strict than those that should prevail in the senate. No senator had a right to point his finger at another and attribute to him (separ- ating him from his colleagues or from the mass of his political associates) any- thing that would cause him paiu or oifense. Therefore he dm not hesitate to say that the senator from Florida had no to desig- nate the senator from New Hampshire in his personality as a person responsible for the crimes and chaises imputed to him. The senate, however, should strike at the root of such personalities It was the July of the presiding officer, as soon as he noticed the irift into personalities, to call tho offending senator to order It h.td bean said by the senator of Missis- sippi (Mr. (leoiv'l that the American senate was a safe place tor one man to insult an- other; alid the sen.dor from Massachusetts (Mr. h.id rather congratulated the seu- ate on that fact, After further debate Mr Call submitted some remarks m his own vindication, and quoted some of Mr. Chandler's expressions in the same, debate He the senate that be had no idea of lolnti'ig itt, rules, The vote resulte 1, vr-s, 27; nays, quorum.

Lord Randolph Churchill nwumeil the de- link' on the reception of the commission's re- port From the inception of the communion, he he hud watched the proceedings with feelings of sorrow and apprahi'iiuien, which CceliiiKs hail grown stranger within him as thn proceedings The proceedings were vitiaUnl throughout, by their unconsti- tutional I'lmractar. He dwelt at length upon tlie course of the government in setting aside tho ordinary tribunals, while holding that there was pnma (acie evidence against the accused mwiiUu-s. Thus insisting, it WM the duty of the government, he continued, to piiKved againht the accused inembers crim- inally. Hi. furtherargued againstthe special notion of the government in creating a com- mission of three judges to fulfil tho func- tions of judge and jury for the purpose of tryliig'men accused of criminal conspiracy. The government had decided to place men who were their political opponents on trial on criminal charges without giving them the protection which a jury would give. [Par- nollite cheering.] Continuing, Lord llandolph said the gov- ernment hud selected the tribunal without K'iving tin accused even tho privileges which belong Ui criminuls of selecting or challeng- ing their jury. Not within the century, he said, had any public man been tested as Mr. Parnell hnil I wen, and he appeuleit to the house to reject such unique and unprece- dented proceedings. The action of the gov- ernment in the commission was lulnptotl miller the closure method, which, though in the government had regarded such proci pilings as unconstitutional, wan nsod liy the guvcrninenl in 1N88 as a method of oppression for Ne- inusis, hn KuM, hud attended the government in its luloptinn of such methods. he asked, "has been the result of this mountain- ous parturition!

Mr. Chamlierlain said the Parnollllcs had invited tho inquiry. The government had treated the allegations as libel, which might or might not be disproved. All of the allo- cations made against the commimion were liuscloss. If criminal proceedings had been instituted the government would have been npciipd tn unlimited ecnuure. Mr. Chamber- lum coinpluncnted the commueion upon tlie ability, impartiality and good faith of the jndgm composing it, who had received the indorsement uf Ijoth Mr. Gladstone and Sir Chnrles He warned the bonne against assuming judicial functions by declining to accept the findings of the judges, and urged the bouse to leave the matter in tha hands of the nation.
