Cholera is making ravages in Home districts and famine in others. In one province alone 4,000,000 people are homeles* and destitution prevails in many others, while the misery caused by tbe groat rloodB in the Yellow river and elsewhere baa not yet abated. It is not creditable to the great oities of New York and Philadelphia that thousands of tbe children there who desire an education cannot be accommodated with school room. There are many expenses that these oities oould afford to curtail to muob bettor advantage than to restrict the educational facilities of tbe boys and girls who are to be the meu and women of the next generation. f DEATH IN A WRECK �1 Accident on the Mt W Railroad.

Tbo wreck occurred on tbe Reading Railroai fifteen miles above this point, at about G:45 to-night. If everything is borne out by subsequent developments it is the worst wreck that has ever occurred iu this section in the history of the Reading Railroad Company. The train which met with the disaster left this city at 0:05 o'clock, ton minutes late. It is known as tbe Pottsville Express, and was running at tho rate of at least ibiity-eight to forty miles au hour. It had on board possibly 12 j to ISO passengers, and it consisted of tho engine, tender, mail and express car and three passenger cars. Above Sboe-makersville, about fifteen miles above this city, there is a curve where the railroad is about eighteen to twenty feet higher than the Schuylkill river. Hero, shortly after [ G o'clock, a freight train ran into a eoa.1 train, throwing Beveral caro of the Utter on tho opposite traok, and before tbe traiu hands bad time to go baok to warn any approaching train of tbe danger tbe Pottsville Express came around tbe curve and ran into tbe wrecked coal cars on its track. a sue'se of horror. The engine went down tbe embankment followed by the entire train with its human freight. The scene was one of great horror and can be better imagined tban described. The erlea of tbe imprisoned passengers were heartrending.  It was a scene never to be forgotten, and those who participated and survived managed to crawl out of their prison and aroused tbe neighborhood.  Word was telegraphed to this oity and help sum moned, but all information waa refused at this point and tbe railroad offioiabi, physicians and surgeons and a force of 300 workmen wore taken to the spot by the company, and with the aid of a traveling electrio light plant tho work of clearing away tho wreak was at once prooeeded ith.  Tbe work waa slow and the dead and dying were taken out with great difficulty.  Up to 10 o'clock to-night six dead and thirty wouuded had been taken out, Of tbe latter some were brought to this city and others taken to the Miner's Hob pital, at Ashland. The dead so far recovered are still on the gronnd. The wreoked train is still lying at the bottom of the river to-night. The exact number on the passenger list iB not known and a reporter who is still au the gronnd telephones that he believes that there arc still twenty-five or more bodies under neath tbe wreck or were carried away by the current. later-40 to 50 killed, 11:30 p. m.-The Associated Press agent has just had direct communication with his representative at tbe scene of the wreck, and the latter says that conservative estimates place tho number killed at forty to fifty. It is almost impossible to estimate the exact number, and tbe full horror of tbo situation will not bo known before morning. At 11 o'clock Mail Agent Grcenwald'a body was taken out, followed by the horribly mangled bodies of two Mahanoy City firemen on their way home from the Chester convention. There is a rumor at tbe scene of the wreck that George Kaeroher, of Pottsville, was in tbe wreoked parlor car. Whether this refers to George K. Kaercher, the famous lawyer of that plaoe, is not known. Tbe scene in this oity is one of great ex-oitement, which was not allayed until long after tnidntght. thirteen bodies taken iut. Up to midnight thirteen bodies had been recovered. The names of those known have already been given, and the remainder are unknown. Five bodies are exposed to view in the Wreck, bat they are pinned under the timbers aud have not been taken out. Prof. Mitchell, of Lehigh University, Bethlehem, is among the injured at tbe Reading hospital. Lawrence Burns, Philadelphia, bad his arm dislocated. Tbe body of John L. Miller, of Creasona, was taken out at midnight. a r-rominent lawyer hilled. A special from Reading to the Philadelphia Inuuirct says: George H. Kaerohor, Esq., the eminent railroad lawyer of Pottsville, who has also a law office in Philadelphia, ia among the killed. Persons who are well acquainted with him have identified the crushed body iu tbe debris of the Pullman car. the latest from the scene. Reading, Sept. 20.-At 2 o'clock this morning the situation was as follows: Throe hundred men were still at work, but they were making slow progress. Fifteen bodies had been taken oat. Their names as far as known have been already given iu the previous dispatches. The otbere are awaiting the recognition of friends. None of tho bodies have been taken from tho scene of tbe disaster. John MoDooough, Jack Noll and William Johnson, of Shonandoab, and John Strauss, of Schuylkill Haven, are among the latest injured repotted. bad sews confirmed. It is still believed tbat twenty or more am underneath the wreck. Wbo they are is not known, aud how many were actually killod will only be disclosed with the removal of the engine and oarB from the bed of tbe river to-morrow. Superintendent Cable, of the Reading road, has given every order nooessary for the aomfort of the Injured. No more names can be scoured aa the telephone office baa closed. That was the only moans of getting news all of to-night. The only reporter to get to tbe soene was one of tbe �af/lc men and he telephoned down nearly all that was secured by the Reading papers. An Enomf Did It. Information direot frum Col. II. M. Bossert, assistant postmnsrer at Westport, is to tbe effect that he has not lost a day from sickness or paralysis-but has been on duty all tbo time, and good for three square meals each day.

It is now denied tbat there was any train within two miles of the Cameron bridge on the night tbe trestles were washed out by tbo Hood.

London, Sept. 19.-Tbo arrest of tbe Irish leaders yesterday fills a conspicuous place in tho newspapers throughout the United Kingdom this morning. Various explanations are surmised to aooount for Belfour's sodden stroke. Tbe commonest one on the part of the Liberal press is that its object was to prevent Dillon and O'Brien from going to America to arouse American sympathy and solicit Amerloan aid. The Conservatives, however, aeout tbe idea tbat Balfour ooold have acted from such a motive. They see in his present policy a laudable effort to prevent a recurrence of disorder In Ireland. On the whole, one gels tbe impression that the predominant public opinion is so far extremely doubtful of the wisdom or tbe expediency of the Government's course. Mr. O'Brien, in an interview this morn ing, Bald it is easy to see what the Govern-ment are driving at by tba arrests. Tbey are making a supreme effort to orush ont tbe organization of tenants for concerted action. This they expect to accomplish, he thought, by simultaneous clearances at all estates where the plan of campaign has been adopted. The evicted tenants they oaloulate on thus having helpless at their feet. "Can snob a polioy be successful?" "No," replied Mr. O'Brien. "It is, in my opinion, a piece of inconceivable folly. But it seems dear to me that this is what the Government proposes to attempt." "It is held by many," the correspondent said, ~nthat the mala purpose of Balfour in making the arrest at this time is to prevent Mr. Dillon and you from making yonr contemplated trip to America." "Tbat does not seem a probable theory to me," replied Mr. O'Brien, "but if it ia tbo true one, a more absurd calculation was never made, even by the present Chief Secretary for Ireland. Far from preventing our appeal to America, ha has made it for ua in a most striking and impressive way." John Callinau and Miobael Dalton.tnem. bera of the National League, have been arrested. T. D. Sullivan will probably make a tour of America. LIVELY TIME IN THE HOOSE Eeed Shows His Power in tho Pace of Elibasterers. THE POINT OF NO QUORUM HAISED Near Woolrieh, this county, on Friday, September Stb, after a brief illness, Mrs. Deborah Clark, aged 70 years, S months and 17 days.

Continuation of the Stale Tactics of Ohject-tlon to U&e Approval of the Journal-The Speaker Counts a {laoraui and sticks to Hit Count In the Face of a Vigorous and Determined Opposition. Washington, Sept. 19.-In tbe House to day after prayer by the Chaplain, Mr. O'Ferrell suggested tbat there waa no quornm present, but the Speaker was able to oount one, and the olerk prooeeded to road the journal. Mt. Oates, Mr. O'Ferrell and Mr. Crisp were the only Democrats in tbeir seats. Tbe journal having been read, Mr, Crisp objeated to Its approval, and asked tbat It be aroendad in one particular. Yesterdry, when the House was operating under a call, a quornm appeared, and the Speaker had directed the Clerk to oall the roll on the Langston-Venable case. He (Mr. Crisp) bad objeated, and had made the point of order that it was not in order to proceed with the roll oall. The Speaker had sustained the objection. Tba journal contained no reoord of this decision of the Speaker. He moved that the journal be amended by inserting it. Mr. Dingley moved to lay tbe amend mout on the table. On a rising vote this motion was carried -140 to 2-and Mr. Crisp raised tbe point of no quorum. Mr. Cannon sailed tbe attention of tbe Speaker to tba foot that there were a number of Republicans present who, on account of being paired, had not ariaen in their plaoe. Mr. Crisp-Why not have a roll-oall? the count questioned. A Repnbllaan member demanded the yoas and nays; but his demand was drowned by depreoatlng cries from bis Re publican colleagues. Mr. Crisp-Yea;'that wuuVil "ulsolbse how many there are here. Tbe Speaker counted 104 membera present-a quorum. Mr. Crisp challenged the correctness of the oount. He did this with the utmost respect for the Speaker and with the utmost sincerity. Whan membera were moving around andoalling ont4'one more" the Speaker was liable to err. He asked the Speaker, in the exercise of tbe power lodged in him, to order tellers to verify the oount. The Speaker said tbat he bad taken great pains In the oount, and had no donbt about its correctness. Mr: Buchanan-Bring in yonr men and order tellers. The Speaker said that he was informed by tbe doorkeepers that there were a dozen Demoorats in the lobby. Mr. Crisp retorted that there was no provision of the rules under which the doorkeepers ooold oount a quorum. Tbe Speaker deelared that tbe yeaa had it, and the amendment waa laid on the table. result of tue vote. Mr. Crisp-Does the Chair decline to order tellers? The Speaker-The Chair does. Mr. Cbeadle rose to protest, but his voice was drowned in a chorus of demands for the "regular order" from the Republicans. Mr. MoKinley hoped that the gentleman would be permitted to aa; a word. The Speaker coinelded in tiiia hope; bnt Mr. Funston interposed a atrennons objection. But" above the din Mr. Cbeadle waa hoard to declare that when the correctness of the oount waa questioned tellers should be appointed. Tbere should be no donbt about the correctness of the count. Tbe Speaker stated tbat tbe question was on the approval of the Journal, and the vote being taken resulted-yeas 162, nays 2. a o.uoiiu5i for a time. Finally a quornm waa secured and the jonrnal waa approved. The question then reeurring on ordering the previous question on the Langston-Venable oase, tbe Demoorats retired. The previous question was ordered, yeas 148, nays 7, tbe Clerk noting a quor, Mr. Cbeadle and Mr. Coleman, Republicans, voted in tbo negative. A motion to recommit was lost. The minority resolution declaring Laugaton not elected was lost, tbe Speaker counting a quorum.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
