Testimony of the Krekemen and fit hen on H oii|-ht»lidx * Train.
BurFAixt, Man'h 13.—The coroner'* inquest on the Hamburg a<vident was continued yea-teniay.
Check Agent Covey testified that he was in
the rear end of the third txxxrh. The bell <*ord broke and smashed a lamp globe over hts head (!ovey’« first thought was that the train had parted. He went to the rear door of the car aud saw that the train had (tarted. He then went into the next ear for-war I and informed Conductor Hougbtaiing of Hi* 1-nk. I lough ta ring asked hun to tell
the head brakeman to get back on the train, an<i then Hougbtaiing started for th* rear of the train. Covey met the brakeman ami told him go right liack a* th* tram had broken. He did so. The witness did not see anyone (mil any cord. He did not know that the rear car* hail no air.
Daniel D. Beckwith of Angola testified that he was til* forxx ani brakeman on th* train. He stat**! the fact* relative to th* break at Dunkirk subdanttally as sworn to by Conductor Hougbtaiing, Engineer Mooney and other preceding w itnwoa. The safety-chains were (Milkd off, but the bumper* apl tea red to la* all right The conductor gave him no instruction to watch the bumper ll* first knew of th* break at Bay View when informed by Conductor Sullivan. When the tram (the forward section) stopped the witness Miw the rear ears coming and j ii in (mn I to the ground ami gave the engineer a signal to goahead, and ran toward the engine swinging his lantern and yelling os the crash eana*. Tie? witness did not pull either the lad! cord or the air-brake cord, nor did he km»w who pulled the air brake <*ord. The witness did not suspect that the train was unsafe.
Arthur M Waite, assistant general master car builder, testified as to the construction of the draw heads ami the condition in which he j found them at the w reck. He could give no j reason for the draw head opening as it did. Ile had known them tounkickon the starting of a tram, but never wheu a train was running.
CONDUCTOR SULLIVAN TESTI El EH.
Charles Ii. Sullivan of Erie was the next witness. He is a Lake Shore conductor ami was on the wrecked train. He has lieen in service twenty-two years as freight conductor, but has IMs-n a (Messenger conductor only a few mouths. He first knew of tho break when Covey informed Hougbtaiing. The latter starb-d for the rear of the train ami the witness went forward to look for the brakeman. Ile went to the luggage oar ami told the brakeman whom he found there that the train hail broken. He got off and ran to the engine, telling Mooney that the tram was broken ami to go ahead. Moonev pulled the throttle and then the crash came. The w itness knew that the rear car* must lie approaching because he kuew there was uo air on the rear cars. The witness did not pull the 1**11 cord nor see any one (mil it, lair did he (lull the air brake nor see any on* pull it.
Coroner Kenney—How did you know that there was no air in the five last car*!
“I saw how the coupling was broken at Dunkirk, and I heard Conductor Houghtal-mg say that he would go on with the air on the six forward cara”
“Ah a conductor and a railroad man did you «H>n ider that with the air coupling broke it xx as safe to run that train U “So far as I thought of tile matter I con-sideied it sale.”
“Had you been in Mr. Houghtaling's (dace would you have run the train in that shaj*'?” “I would have done the same as he did, only I would have had a man there to haxe watched th<»se cars. I didn't consider it safe without taking some precautions.”
“Would you luixe prevent**! the man (the oil man) at Dunkirk from putting on the nexv air-hose so long as he had it really V
“No. So long a^ he had them there I would hnx'e had them put on.”
“Had those hose l**en attached it would have pr* xvnUsl the accident, would it not?" j “Had the hose been put on when the train broke they would have l*,en the means of j stopping !*>th j* it ions of the traiu.”
'I lie xx itll* -s stat- *! that in a conversation | with Conductor Hougbtaiing after the train left Dunk ilk, in reply to the latter'* suggestion that Engineer Mooney had started the train with a jerk iii Dunkirk, he sa el that he thought the train might run all right with air iii six carn, but that if it broke in two agam there would be danger.
Noel tty Iv*-s. th - rear brakeman, testified that if he hail known the train was broken he would have put on the hand brakes, but he did not think they woukl have held the cars. on account of the s|**e*l at which they w ere running.
Engine* r Mo**ney, recalled, testified that in his opinion if the hand brake* hail been appled the r*ar cars could have been sufficiently check. I, at I* ast to have rendered the crash less serious. He considered it quite probable that if the hand brakes had been promptly work* <1 the cars might lmx'e Imsmi brought to a standstill and tho accident prevented. The witi.es- recalled txvo instances in which a train was stopped by the us** of hand brakes alone.
I.*.ins L. F* t, th** Wagner car conductor,
testified that if he had known that th* cars had no mr he ti anigh t lie could have h-ssened their - joed by setting Hie hand brakes, but bedouin* Iii he could have slopped them. If Ii* had known the air bruke xxh> useli'ss, he xvi-iii.I not have considered the train safe. He LUI not inform the (si -eagers that the train had parted because he did not suppose the forward ss* Hon would Im* stopped. Ho therefore considered that there would be no danger of a coli Lion. Fest said that if he hail Ish'Ii mf**rmed of the bleak sooner, he th night that he (Mis-ibly could have stopped the rear couch*** ny ** mug the hand brakes, as bt* would have hat! alxiiit two minute* time. _

Niagara Fallh, Ont., March 13.—J. R* Birchall was foiTiially held here last night by Magistrate Hill for the assizes at Woodstock in Octolier mi the charge of murdering F. C. Ben well on Feb. 17 last. Mrs. Bio hall was remanded for eight days and will remain in tile custody of an officer at Baldwin'* larding house in this village, where sh* has been sin-* her arrent.
great interest in the came.
A great throng of people gathered at the depot at ll o’clock in the morning ex(»ecting that Birchall would arrive at that hour from Vi eliand jail. He did not come. Government Detective Murray and a lot of news-pa|ier men arrixe*! from Toronto.
For a time it was thought that some hitch ha*I occurred that would po*t(M>ue continuation of the examination, and excitement ran high. It was soon learned, however, that Sheriff Smith of Welland hail un-understood instructions, and hail not, therefore, brought his prism:***- on the ll oVln«*k train. Magistrate Hill announced that Birchall would lie brought down on the 5 p. rn. train, ami that tile examination would immediately prot*eied.
Th* village was full of strangers. Farmers had driven in from miles around to see th*- la»t s«viie in the drama enacted at this (stint For bout's liefore court opened the court-room was filled with a (lerspiring crowd. The (teopl* were massed together com(tartly. I he lobby xvas full anil many
sUmrI out in the pouring rain.
iii tun all's DEFENDER.
A sensation was created during the afternoon xx hell it was learned that James A. Macdonald of Toronto, nephew of Sir John A. Mm donald, and one of the most noted criminal lawyers of ('anatta, was present in tiehalf of Birdtall. To a reporter he sal*I he had not yet taken bold of the case, lait had been sent for by Birchall and would in all probability Is* retained. Lawyer l\*es of london, Out., Isidore F. Ilellmuth's law partner, conducted the case for the defense.
STH PATH Y FOR MHM. BIRCHALL Mrs. Birchall, looking (aile and week, was brought into court at 5 o'clock leaning on tho arm of Chief Young. Much sympathy was manifested for her bv the spectators. Magistrate Hill said information now was that she was actv-sory to the crime in Niagara county ami that all evidence against her should is* heard here. Neither side had any further evidence iii her case. Lawyer Ives claimed she was entitle*! to instant discharge. Magistrate Hill was not sure of his authority in ti e picmisc- and remanded her for eight days, with the understanding that she could lie brought up at any time in the interim ami her case disused of. The s(»ert«tors cheered, relieved thut she was not to be taken at mice to jail.
Detective Murray bad a coroner’s warrant from Oxford county in his j>ooket. and would have immediately arrested her if she had ben liberated.
BIRCH all's WONDERFUL NERVE. Birchall stepped off the Michigan Central train, handcuffed to an officer, and smiled gaily at the waiting crowd. XVlien brought into the court room be appeared serene, per-f**ctly unconcerned, as nonchalant as if taking his seat in some festixe gathering. He was well brushed, well confided, bright looking. His indifferent demeanor is a study and a wonder to all w ho see him. He smiled around at th** reporters ami officials, nodded to some, looking straight out of his piercing black eyes without a particle of timidity. The handcuffs tieing removed he quietly took off his kid gloxes, crossed his legs, tipped l«ack his chair an i waited for the proceedings bi licgin.
Alsmt half a dozen A itne«ses were sworn. Most of the evidence was a repetition of that taken at the coroner's inquest. It came from trainmen xx ho mw Birchall and Ben well on that fatal trip to Princeton ou the morning of Fell. 17. ('outing back after poor Ben well had Uvn left weltering in his blood in the lonely Blenheim swamp, Burchall Insight from James Duffy, the news agent, cigars, oranges, Mark Twains “Tramp Abrood,”hod Duffy sit down ami smoke one of th** cigars ami offered him a drink out of his pocket flask. Birchall seemed in the best of spirits.
New evidence wa.- introduced w hen George Fhemister, manager at Niagara Falls of the Great Northwest*Tri Telegraph company, was sworn. He produced th rec telegrams. One was sent from Niagara Falls, Out., at 7:44 p. rn.. Feb. 17. It was addressed “To Pally, Stafford House, Buffalo,” and read: “Arrive Buffalo 9 o'clock. Must remain there benight. [Signed.] Bastell.” Phemister could not d**scrll)e the sender. He could not say it was Birchall. A train from london had just come in. In this telegram it is suje peeled Birchall’* name was missjieUed by the operator. Another theory is that he mis-spelled it knowingly. Felly told the reporter that he had never known Birchall to rail himself “Hastell. ” Felly was called aud swore he <1 id not recognize the handwriting as that of Birchall.
Another telegram dated Buffalo, received at Niagara Full* Feb. 27, directed “Birchall, imperial Hotel,” read:
Telegram ana letter seat on to you yesterday to ship heavy Lvgga^e to Fifth avenue Hotel, New Y'oi k. Stafford.
The third telegram was from New' York, dated March I, and w as evidently from Felly, though it had no signature. “ Benxvell not her**,” was all it said ’Hint closed the testimony.
NOTHING TO SAY.
Magistrate Hill a.-k*sl Birchall if he had anything to say. He xvhispered with his lawyer a moment, then said in a matter-of-fact way: “No, I have nothing to say.” The next moment he a hied with some emphasis: “At this parti* alar time.” His coolness wa* astonishing.
Magistrate Hill then held Fireball for trial in Get*»l>er at \Vo*Hist*s*k, the capital of the county in which the murder occurred. He sltpjied his kid gloves on his dainty hands, hi.- IkmIv guard slipj*ed the hand* tiffs over them und I* I him out through the crowd, the most unconcerned appearing man in all that throng.

Niagara Falls, Ont., March JA—Excitement over the Betiwell murder ami the remarkable development* which followed it still runs high hei-e, anti it was fed yesterday
by the enactment of the last scenes in th* drama liefore the scene is shifted from her* to Woodstock.
Mr. ami Mrs. Birchall were brought before Magistrate Hill to go through a formality— that of lieing held for the assizes at Wood-stock in Octolier. At least Birchall was **er-tain to lie held after the verdict of the coroner's jury that he killed Ben well, and it wa* generally understood that Mr* Birchall would also be held, the coroner* jury having found her possessed of guilty know ledge of the crime.
a wen for enulihh flies Evident** of a conspiracy to lute Englishmen to Canada to de*|>oil them of their money, if not their live-, im still developing. Closer search through Birchall'* effect* has brought out nome letters from Welland in relation to the advertisement* they ha*I inserted in the !^>ud*ii new s|e|s*rs to emmare victims. Me I Ie ruth, who is a uietnlter of the National Un iou club, was the man whose name appears as the advertiser and he received the letters from inquiries These he turned over to Birchatl far investigation when be did not hap(*en to be able to interrogate the writer personally. Here is a copy of one of Mellerish's letters to Birchall, under date of Feb. I, 1890:
No. 2 Sm'THriEt.D Villa, Chkltkjoiau I ere lese a copy of on** or more an*wars to the advertisement. I suggest that you have an interview with him Monday and ti mi out what he want*. Please report progress Sincerely.
T. S. Mkllekimh At this time Benwell and Felly bad been caught in the trapandarrangements had been made to sail for the mythical American farm, but Bin haJi suddenly notified them that he must have a few more days to complete a loudness matter, it is believed that the in-\VstigHtioi\of the new applicant, mentioned by Mcherish, was the reason for BirchaU'tt delay. He proliably hoped to gather in a thin! victim.
SI KPICIOUN OF PH'KTH ALL.
W«>*¥lst*M k dis(*atches indicate that there is a strong inclination to connect Neville T. Ph'kthull of thut fihuv wilh Bircliall’s o(»era-tious. It will is* remeintiereii that, Pickthall hurriedly raised on his farm Feb. IO
and »liK,«(*|*eartsl. 'l'uesday a di-i*utch showed that he is in Arizona. This removes suspicion that he was foully «lea It with by Fireball.
But now other suspicion*-arise. When Birchall was in W«KMlst**ck in Inhh, under the name of is>rd Somerset, he ami Pickthall were close friend*. Then they quarreled. It ha* been shown that on Feb 14, th** day of Birchall'* arrival in New York, Mrs. Birchall s*ii,I to her husband at the Metropolitan Hotel, in Mr. Felly’* hearing:
“ Did you see Pickthall ? I saw him on the stairs a little while ago.”
“ No, I didn’t see him, dear,” replied Birchen. “You must be mistaken, but if he is here, I suppose it’s only tm business.”
POINTE or SUSPICION.
The (joints of suspicion are arranged a* follows:
While at Woodstock nearly two years ago Birchall and Pickthall are x’ery friendly but quarrel and no one ever knows* why.
Fireball intends to sail from Ijveqsiol to reach New York about Feb. ll, but misses the l*>at ami arrives on the next one three days later.
On Feb. IO Pickthall relives a letter from England which excites him strongly. He | mortgages his farm for $1,000 for ten days, leaves on the train for the Falls without even telling his wife ami is seen at Niagara Falls.
On Fob. 12 he is seen again in Woodstock, about the time of the arrival of the train from the Fails, lie is seen by only two persons ami ap(iatent]y leaves at once.
On Feb. 14 Mrs. Birchall sees him in New York, ami upon her telling her husband, the latter expresses no surprise.
On Feb. 22 a telegram is received at Port Rowan, addressed to Mrs. Pickthall, iii rare of her father. It is signed by lur husband, who knew she was in Woodstock at the time he left. It cornea from a town in Arizona.
A SHADY OPERATION.
A Canadian M. P. (barged With Ab'ining nu Privilege*.
Ottawa, Out., March 13. -Charles Rykert, Conservative member of (»arlianient for Lincoln, is charged by Sir Richard (’artwright ami other great iii**rah with abusing his position as member of parliament to secure large tindier limits in the Northwest at a nominal price, and then selling them. He purchased seine years ago IOO square miles of limits at Cypress Hills, Manitoba. The timber was very valuable, but all likyert paid the government was $500. Shortly after this he sold the limits to a German named Sands for $200,000, of which $75,000 wa* paid in cash to his wife.
Part of the balance went toward the expenses of a survey and litigation with the Canadian Pacific railway ami the remainder was secured by note. In the bouse of commons Tuesday night Cartwright mox'etl for an investigation iuto Rykerfs conduct. The government, however, endeavored to shield him. A large number of members xjmke on both side*. Cartwright's motion was met by a government amendment for an adjournment of the debate. This was carried 94 to 72.

An arraug*-meat has been made l**twe*-n Millard anil Lowery to run the entire street car plant of St. Paul and Minneapolis by electricity.
Why Russia Want Invited.
St. Petersburg, March 13 —The Orasb-dmim attributes Germany's failure to invite Russia to th * labor conference, firstly, to the fact that there is no labor question in Russia, and secondly, to the fact that Germany is convinced that Russia would refuse to take peri on the ground that it is virtually patronizing ws’ialisni. Moreox'er Russia's refusal would seriously impede Germany, inasmuch as it would cause Frau*** also to re* fuse to take part.

SENATORS STRIVING TO KEEP THE LADY UNDEFILED.
They Object to Compelling Mer t*. Share Her Little Islaud With the Krum of Europe—Th# Motion tm Klimlnat* Mr. Call’* Interpolation of The Record Passed.
Washington, Mardi 13.—The concurrent resolution for the investigation of immigration matters xx as lei*! before the senate yesterday with the two house amendment* extending the investigation to the purchase of American industries by foreign capital, and to the us*1 of Btslhie's island in New York harbor as an immigration depot.
Mr Edmunds said he had reivix'cd a letter from the secretary of the treasury ou the subject of Bedim** island. The letter was read by the clerk. It stated that the re mux a1 of the immigration station from (‘as tie Garden was essential to th* gxssl administration of the immigration lax**; that Bed-loe’s island wa* the l»est obtainable place for a new depot, ami that the secretary would not construe the pro|Mise«i amendment as an expression of congress that there sh* at Id ba any interruption of the preparations for the changa.
Mr. Chandler moved a non-concurrence in the hon ^* amendments ami that a conference be asktsl.
Mr. McPherson opposed the motion and characterized the prop*wed establishment of an immigration station on Bcdloe’s Island as an umxarrantahle proceeding. He said that when the statue of liberty was erected there it was on the pledge, either expr»»ssed or implied, that Bedloe’s Island would never lie list'd for any (im pose of a commercial character. He suggested that Ellis Island might Is* taken as an immigrant station.
Mr. Evarts sui«l that it was not necessary for him to say that what remonstrances he could make on the subject he hail made. Ut* suggested to Mr. (’handle? that the easiest way to haxe the questisu disposed of would be to concur iii the house amendment* and to have the matter promptly inquired into.
Mr. Chandler withdrew the motion and moved a concurrence in the house amendments. The motion was agreed to; ami so the concurrent resolution has passed boti! houses.
The resolution to exclude from The Re* sin I the in ten *>lat inns made by Mr. (’all iii the report of the discussion with Mr. Chandler xx as agreed to—yeas, 36; nays, 14. Four l>em-ocrats voted iii the affirmative, viz.: Messrs. Payne, Pugh, Yams* aud Cockrill.
Tile senate then proceeded to the i*on*ider-ation of the resolution reported on the loth of February, declaring that it is competent for the sen ile to elect a president pro tempore who shall hold tile office diiriug the pleasure of th** senate, and until another is elected ami shall execute the duties thereof when the vice president is absent.
Mr. George made an argument agniust the resolution on constitutional grounds, holding up the invariable precedent of the senate in support of his views. The constitution, he said, wa* bi Is* set aside for a mere matter of con veil iem*e.
During the course of Mr. George's remarks the hour of 2 o'clock having arrived, the educational bill came up as unfinished business, and Mr. Plumb called on Mr. Blair for an indication of the t ime when a vote on th© bill could Is* taken. No understanding was n ached at that time ami Mr. George was allowed to conclude his remarks. Then the matter of fixing a day for taking a vote on the *slucatioiial bill was again taken up arid Mr. Blair said that a vote could lie rem'hi si prn!>ably on Thurwlay or Friday of next week. After some discussion, Thursday, March 20, was fixed ii|s>n, general debate to cl-ise at 2 o’clock on that day, Mr. Blair to have i ie ll*sir for not more than one hour following, and debate to continue then under the five-minute rule until a vote is taken. Mr. Plumb, however, gave notira that he would . move Monday to take up some other measure and to set aside the* Blair bill.
Mr. Plumb moved an amendment to rule 39 to provide that all votes taken in secret session, whether yea and nay vote* or otherwise, shall lie made public at the close of the session at which they were cast. The motion was referred to the committee un rules.
Consideration of the resolution in regard to the president pro tem was resumed and Mr. Turpin moved an amendment (which wa*, accepted by Mr Evarts) making it reoil that the president protein shall hold office during all future abeenca of the vi«*e pres dent*
Mr. Turpi© made an argument in favor of the resolution. Ile was followed by Mr. Evarts who sail that the resolution merely declared the competence of the senate to clio*-se a chairman xvho should act in the absence of the vice president,and it did not preclude the senate limiting the election to the E cu abseil**© of the vice president if it saw
I he resolution was then agreed to without
Th** educational bill was then taken up
aud Mr. George spoke in support of the bill. He regarded the measure as a generous offer made by the northern states to the southern st ates. He would not ask airns for the people of Mi--issippi, but he should not go into the spurning business as the senator from West Virginia ( Mr. Faulkner) had done some weeks fig*) when he got on his high horse and pro]*****! to spurn bribes and all that sort of thing. There was no brits* in it. But he did not fee! that he bari a right (when he l<s>ked at tho condition of a large portion of the black people of Mississippi) to reject the offer made.
Mr. Hear, speaking in support of th© bill, said that the measure was dearer to his heart than anything else proposed or discussed Ii© fore the American people. If he cs rn Kl he assured that the bill would become a law aiel that th« great consequences would result from it which ho cxpe<*ted to result be would Is* w illing to go out of public life to-morrow and never to lie again heard of among his countrymen.
'J he debate then took a sectional torn, Mr. George arguing that the ad for the readmission of Mississippi, Texas and Virginia forbids those states from inqxising an educa ti*mal test on voters.
Finally the discussion came to a close, an*! after a short secret session the senate at 6 p. in. adjourned
