ALBANY, N. Y., Sept the alleged train wrecker arrested at Hud- son, is still kept in close confinement at tho Central railroad in this city. Nobody is allowed to talk to him, and his family are not even permitted to see him. Superintendent Bissoll and De- tective Pinkerton refuse to answer any questions, but hint to reporters of com- ing sensational developments. The gen- eral impression is that Reed is held for information and is voluntarily a prison- er. The reason for not jailing him is said to be fear of a suit for false Im- prisonment The defectives aro all busy and tho Albany police is in use besides. As a result of the information fur- nished by Reed, detectives Pinkorton, Humphreys, Devine and to- gether with the local force, ran "down two men yesterday. The men are John Cordial, twenty-four years of age, a con- ductor, and John Kearnan, thirty-six years of ago, a "brakeman. 'Both are Knights of Latxv and 'strikers. They were arrested on warrants sworn out at the instance .of the New York Central The Charge of KaTortttna In Claims Shown to Without MOB. WASHIN-OTOX, Sept apecia.' House conjmittoo investigating tin charges against Commissioner of Pen- sions R.iura continued :he investigation yesterday. Mr. Lemon was the first I witness. He read a statement covering the points of the case which referred to I hitnsel! aad his business. He presented a scatcmont showing the claims allowed him by tho Pension seven oor- responding months under Commission- ers Black and Kaum. Tho former had allowed him aad the latter O.OS9. Ho s.-xid that the that he had been favored by thp decision of Commis- sioner Raum, any more than other at- torneys was an unqualified falsehood and that it was an impossibility for any commissioner to do this. The charge, he saii, could only be made through ig- norance and malice. Mr. charged that out of cases afiecto 1 by tho decision of Com- missioner Raum were his, and that he had received foes on these claims amounting to This statement, he said, was grossly inac- curate. He had never asked Mr. Raum or any other commissioner him, and in making the charge Mr. Cooper had displayed ignorance and malice. He invited Mr. Cooper to coma to his office and examine all the cases on file, hit clerks and his method of doing bugii ness and him to do this and not go and Mr. Cooper him what was'th< amount of his fortuno, and what his an- nual incoma rrorn tae pension business amounted to He refused to answer questions, saying that it was none oi Mr Cooper's business. The committee upheld him in this refusal. i In answer to questions by Mr. Cooper! Mr. Lemon said that he had suggested) the luhug- complained of to Commlsf stonor Raura, and had seon him at differ ent times and suggested the matter. Hi thought that the ruling was just. denied, however, that it benefited any more than it did others. In to questions in reference to hU iudora ing the notes for Mr. Raum, he told thd committee how and when it happened Mr. Cooper him if he did think it was improper to indorse the notes undor tho circumstances of the lations he bore Mr. Raum. He replied that he did not and it he had he should not have done so. In answer to a question by Mr. Lewis, he said that he hold shares of stock in Mr. Raum's company as securi- ty. The security was offered by Mr. Raum himself and not asked for by him and ho would have indorsed the papers on Mr. Raum's high character alone. He said that he never had any assur- ance from Mr. Raum or any one else that ho would issue tho order he had been urging before he indorsed the note, and it merely happened that he indorsed tbe note the day aftor tho order was issued and it had no connection what- ever with tho ruling. In answer to a question by Mr. Sawyer, as to how many of the casos put into the com- pleted files wore his, ho said he did not know, but did not think there were more than Attempt to Wreck Passenger Train. Time It Was nt Old Troy, N. Y., on the Central Bcwd. Who Warned tho at by (Tnknowa Who Bccaped la tho ALBAXY, N. Y.. Sept six o'clock train out of New York, due here at last was thirty minutes late, and as this train is usually on time it looked suspicious. A blockade in- tended to wreck the train was discov- ered by a track walker at Now Ham- burg and tho train was just in time to prevent a serious accident. At a point called Old Troy, near Ham- burg, the train was Stopped so quickly that the passengers were thrown from their seats. There was great excite- ment, the people on the train believing that there was another accident. The cause, however, was tho appearance of a trackman with a rod Inntorn and with blood streaming from a wound in his shoulder. The said ho several shota fired and then saw the man. the trackman could spoak he said that there was an obstruction on the track, and a searching party soon found a pile of ties laid across and braced.from behind with pieces of rail- road iron. The obstruction removed and the train proceeded with a thorough- ly frightened lot of passengers. Two men out rowing on tho river near that point saw somt. men busy on the tracks, and waiting until they disap- peared they crawled quietly up. They found a steel rail wedged in the cattle- guard in the same way as at Albany, and braced up in the same way by pieces of iron. With all their strength they, could not move it and started down the track to warn the Chicago limited ex- press. They met a trackman and swinging his red lantern, started to stop the train. 'In an instant several shots rang out and ono took effect in the trackman's shoulder. However, tho train -was stopped about 100 yards south of the obstruction. An official report just received shows that the obstruction was not placed like the ono at Albany. There is a culvert at this point and into that culvert wore jammed seven heavy ties. Those ties wore placed so that their-butts pointed towards the apnrosr.htiR train, the engine had struck it tho ties'would only have been driven In harder and the train would havo gone into the river.

Wheeler on Saturday night wms indirectly to resolution of- fttred by him at the Grand Army vention at Petersburg last spring reflect- ing on the Confederate flag. Up to that time he was doing a good business and was very popular with the peoplo of Norfolk. The resolution offered was in the shape of a petition to Congress to the manufacture of the Confederate flag, which Wheeler termed a "ooa- temptible rag." His action aroused the people here and affected Wheeler's business to such an extent that after some weeks he publicly denied being ro- aponsible lor the resolution. IIo oven went so far as to appear at tbo head of a detacLraont of Grand Army men at the time of a Confederate celebration. It was subsequently proven, however, that he was tho author of tho resolution, and then the fooling against him be- came His business contin- ued to go and ho sought relief in drink.
