As i backed toward the we--r the Downer Grove ex- press of the Burlington road cania tuun- dering along, and before brakes could be set or an aifirm given, thepilot of the Bur- lington engine went crashing into the rear end of tlia picnic train. The s-condcar was a light suburban on 3. The one behind and the one ahead of it were regular pas- senger coaches a great deal heavier. A Complete Telescope. When the Burlington train struck the rear coach of the train it rose from its trucks and plowed over the tinder box in its way. For ten feet it was a complete telescope, "he heavier coach behind cut down the light one in front a3 though it was an egg shell, and the human beings in its way were crushed to death or cruelly injured. Four persons were killed in- stantly and seven others injured, two of whom will die. Many others were slightly hurt, and all aboard the picnic train and the Burlington passengers were thrown from, their seats and severely shaken. Following is the list of killed and injured: Killed. Lilly Dinnier, aged 9. Martha Dinnier, aged 2 years, a sister of Lilly. Two unknown men, one apparently about 18, and the other 23 years of age. Fatally TVotmded. Minnie Pilgrim, aged 22 years, both legs broken, and some internal injuries. Otto 18 years.badly injured, not expected to live. Injured. Louis Torpey, leg broken. Albert Berger, foot crushed. Henry Newman, collar hone broken and internal injuries. Freda Beswick, left leg crushed. Caring the Wounded. Had the Burlington train been running at a high rate of speed every person in the car would have met instant death. Citi- zens carried most of the killed and injured into the little depot before the police ar- rived. Xo sooner had the accident hap- pened than the conductor of the Illinois Central train uncoupled the telescoped cars and with the rest of his train drew into Chicago. The police at once sent word to the Central station ordering the arrest of all the train hands, but only the conductor and brakeman could be found, the fireman and engineer having fled. No Hear Lights Displayed. Robert Dixon, ths engineer of the Bur- lington in an interview said: "I am positive there wert; no rear lights dis- played on the rear of the Illinois Central train, and the flagman did not flag us. I had evt-ry reason to supposa I was running on a clear tr .ck when I went into the real- end of the excursion train." Tue tendency of those who the to put the blame on tho C -nn-al fin-man. Dix-n.

For this the scope of the paper considerably, broader than any journal of it.s kind. In fact the word "labor" in the title is rather mis- hi is.s inferences. Mr. Davitt is a of sociological questions, and is incliiu-1 to take the view that the- interests of all classes are identical. That what help one would help all, and that the problem is to find the fatal defect which makes civilization tend toward un- stable relations among the classes, and ul- timate general collapse. lie is more in- clined to'.vard Henry George's doctrine than to-.vard socialism. A Dangerous Journalistic llival. It thought that The Labor World will largely supplant Reynold's Weekly News- paper, the great social democratic organ, which has a circulation of nearly half a million copies among the laboring class. Reynold's is a Socialist paper, and is very bitter in its attacks upon the upper classes. There is a growing demand, however, for a popular organ with a littla more argu- ment and a little less vituperation, and T. P. O'Connor drew a good mcuy of Rey- nold's subscribers away wlien he founded his bright and newsy Star, which vras rad- ical without being vindictive, argumenta- without being dull. The Star has grfeatly declined in influence since O'Con- neff sold it, and Davitt's paper now has a pJetty clear field to itself.

A Costly Ilevolution. The people of Ticiao are grumbling the espensiveness of their little revolution. The cost of maintaining the federal troops who have been sent to the canttra to pre- serve order is francs- per day. The government is criticized for deferring the canton election so long, as there can be nc remedy for the existing unsettled and costly state of affairs until the election is and the people's chosen rulers can take charge. The frequent sudden illness of King Charles of Portugal are alarming, and it is now feared that his vitality has been reduced so low that he cannot, permanently rally. The Itaiian ambassador at Vienna, will shortly return to Rome to arrange the de- tails of the renewal of triple alliance. The raids of the police upon clubs foi the purpose of breaking up gambling prat-1 iec-s have been renewed of late, and many captures have been made.

Sept. fourth annual German Catholic congress was formally opened yesterday by a solemn high mass at the cathedral. Bishop Janssenof Belle- ville. Ills., was celebrant, assisted by Very Rev. Mr. Muehlsiepeu of Si. Louis. Dr. Buechler of New York delivered a sermon in German. A secret meeting of the priests' association took place at 10 o'clock. T he aim of the association isthe making of arrangements for annual Catholic re- unions, a'so to put in practice the resolu- tions taken at the annual meetings of the association. One object which will re- ceive great attention is the school ques- tion. Another object that will engage the attention of the congress is the estab- lishment of new parishes. Many of the delecrafs and dignitaries of the church are yet to cr.Tne. Tv-n hundred and eighty-seven priests have een enrolled and 2.800 delegates tn all are here. The sessions will last till Friday. At 1 o'clock there was a meeting of Catholic youn-j; men. and at 3 p. m. the main meeting of the reunion opened. At the afternoon meeting the Rev. Father Borneman of Reading, Pa., pre- sented the following list of permanent offi- cers, selected by the caucus of priests'at their secret President. Judge Theodore Brnener, St. Cloud. Minn.: first vice president, Nicho- las Goenner. Dubuque. la.: second -vice president, George Sternlie, first secretary. Anton Roesslein. St. Louis: sec- ond secretary, Charl-s J. J. Jaegle, Pitts- burg; third secretary, Heinrich Berkoff, Fort Wayne. Ind. The Rev. Father Gc-oble of Pittsbnrg de- livered the address of welcome. The afternoon was given up to addresses and discussion of propositions. Resolutions were adopted in support of the German emigrant asking that congress and steamship companies take steps to secure separation of the sexes traveling in the steerage of ocean vesselg. also demanding better accommodations for this class of passengers. The steam- ships first adopting these suggestions will have a monopoly of German patronage. A proposition tendered by Father Held- man of Chicago, suggesting that German popular songs and" the use of German singing in devotional exercises be encour- aged to a greater extent, aroused a lively discussion. It was cut short by the ruling of the president that the subject was a matter for the individual churches to de- FIGHTING BOB" MILLIARD. large retinue of servants, and will travel termine, and the session adjourned. in truly royal style.
