How ft Occurred.
The-accident was a sad termination of the
reunion of the One Hundred and Second
ennsylrania Volunteers at Butler. There
ere about 25 veterans on board the train at
tbe time, and nearly all of them were in
jured. Tbe wreck was caused by the rails spread
ing and allowing a coach to go over a bank.
-ZaVie car were about 24 people, and not
one of them escaped unhurt.
The train left Butler at 235 o'clock in
the afternoon, and was due in this city at
4:40. The crowd on board was mostly made
up of the stragglers who were returning
home-from tbe reunion. The majority of
the veterans who had attended the festivi
ties came home on tbe early morning train,
but those who were on the fated train had
remained until the afternoon.
Composition of Ibe Train.
The train was If o. 17, in charge of En
gineer .T. Cuthbert and Conductor J. S.
Gray. It was composed of an engine and
two coaches. One of the latter was a com
bination smoking and baggage car, and
was the one at the rear end of the train.
The other coach was an ordinary Pennsyl
vania standard passenger car.
"While bowling along at a rate of about 30
miles an hour, and singing their old camp
songs, the veterans and their wives had no
thought of an accident While passing
over the Sarver bridge they were admiring
the country scenery, when all of a sudden
the train received a shock, and the wheels
of the first car could be heard bumping over
The Scene of the Wreck.
The point where the accident occurred is
about three-quarters of a mile this side of
Sarver station and 35 miles from Allegheny
City. The train was going along at a high
rate of speed when it struck a sharp curve
at the Sarver bridge. When the driving
wheels of the locomotive hit the angle of
the curve the rails spread and allowed the
tender to drop down on the ties. The front
coach also jumped off the rails.
The force of the shock was enough to
throw the coach over on the lower side, and
it rolled down the bank toward the creek.
The coach turned over once and alighted
on its side. It was crushed in as If it had
been a cigar box, and penned underneath
the wood, glass,' etc., were the passengers.
A Badly MIxed-TJp Mess.
"When the coach rolled down the em
bankment the passengers were thrown pell
mell over one another: When it turned
upside down the backs of the seats came out
and the people were forced from them.
The men and women were thrown together,
now having their heads bumped against the
rail of a seat, now being jammed in between
the seats, and then thrown against the glass
windows of the car.
When the coach stopped, at the bottom of
the bank, it was a mass of splinters and
broken lumber. In one side there was not
a single whole panel of glass left. The car
was smashed, and lay in such a position that
none oi the people could be pulled out

train men and.

before the imprisoned men and women
could be released from their position. Some
of them had their limbs and arms caught in
such positions that it was fully an hour be
fore they conld all be taken out
When the train went down Baggagemas
ter Huffy, who was irr-the combination oar,
jumped out, and without waiting to ascer
tain the extent of the damage, ran along the
track all the way to Freeport, a distance of
seven miles, and reported the wreck. As
soon as Superintendent Kirtland received
notice of it he jumped upon s,d engine and
started for the scene.
Other Medical Parties Procured,
A telegram was sent to Sharpsburg order
ing out the company's doctors, and the
engine picked them up in a car at that
place. Dr Graham, ot fiarrwbux, headed
one party of four and $cCardy, of Free
port, a party of five physicians. Three of
the company's physicians at Tarentum were
also ordered out, and were picked up on the
After the departure of the Su
perintendent tho wrecking train
was ordered out, and all the men
that could be secured were sent to
the scene of the disaster. It required but a
very short time to put the track in proper
shape and get the road open for business.
Tbe InJured.Tenderly Cared For.
As soon as their wants could be attended
to and sufferings alleviated the injured
were placed as comfortably as pos
sible in two coaches and hanled
to Allegheny. Owing to their
condition, Superintendent Kirtland ran the
train very slowly, and it was nearly 11
o'clock before they arrived at the Federal
street station. Some of the wounded had
been taken off the train at Chestnut street,
and hurried across the Sixteenth street
bridge to their homes.
Superintendent Kirtland had nearly all
the carriages he could get at Federal and
Chestnut streets, to convey the injured to
their homes. The Allegheny General Hos
pital and the police patrol wagons were out
to look after any of those for whom provis
ion had not been made.
Trainmaster T. M. Thompson made every
body as comfortable as possible, and sent
agents oi the company borne with each per
son. Everything that could be .suggested
was secured ior the injured people by the
railroad officials and their assistants.
Stories of Eye-Witnesses.
Accompanying General Eowley was L.
Kelly, a member of the regiment, who said:
"1 was in the front car. Shortly before
we reached the bridge I started back to the
smoker to take a drink of whisky. I had just
sat down when I heard a grinding sound as
if the wheels were plowing through the
roadbed, and the car I was in Degan to shake
as though it would topple over. I saw the
car in front go over the embankment, and
the cries of the women and children were
most pitilul. I was the only man on the
train who had any whisky, and probably I
would not have been alive to give it to the
sufferers had I not started back through the
train for a drink myself. There was no one
in my car hnrt My liquor probably saved

SENTENCE NOT YET PRONOUNCED,
As the Pugilist's Lawyer Still Eaa an
Argument to Make.
THE CHAMPION SOMEWHAT WORRIED.
Indictments Bare Been Found Against Others of the
The Mississippi jury last evening brought
in a verdict of guilty against John L. Sulli
van on a charge of prize fighting. The
counsel for the defendant will argue a
motion before sentence is pronounced.
Fresh indictments have been returned
against Charley Johnston and others.
Prntvis, Miss., August 16. Arguments
in the Sullivan case were made to-day.
District Attorney Neville opened and closed
for the State, while ex-Attorney General
Ford, Judge Calhoun and Mr. Green ap
peared for defendant. The District At
torney, in closing his argument, said:
"From the evidence the accused has been
proven guilty. If your verdict be that of
not guilty then write on the indictment
'Not guilty Mississippi disgraced and
despised,' aud if tbe verdict be 'guilty' then
you will show to the world that in Missis
sippi, our beloved State, the law is su
preme." Charges for the defense were read by Mr.
Green, of counsel, and those for the State by
the District Attorney. Each of the charges
are quite lengthy. That for the defense
says that although the jury believe from the
evidence that, the detendant fought with
Kilrain, yet, unless the State
PBOVED IT WAS TBtTE
that the person's name was known to be
Jake Kilrain, or that he passed by 'that
name, they can't find defendant guilty under
either count That although thejuryshould
be satisfied that defendants' taught in a
ring, it must be proved that they fought for
a prize, to convict on the first count
The charge for the State at the outset
says: "If the jury believes from the evi
dence that Sullivan, within two years be
fore the indictment, engaged in a prize
fight with Jake Kilrain they will find him
It was 3:30 when the jury took the charges
and withdrew, and at 5 o'clock they re
turned into court. Sullivan took his seat
at tbe bar, and only the chewing he gave
the toothpick in his mouth showed that he
felt any emotion. Judge Terrell had al
ready taken his seat, while the attorneys
became solemn and expectant There was
a deep silence as the jury entered. They
sat down for ft moment, but Judge Terrell

There was a general nodding of leads,

"You mean first count," suggested the
Judge. A general headshaking denoted an
affirmation. Judge Calhoun requested that
the jury be asked what they did mean.
"You mean gnilty of prize fighting," said
the Jndge to the Jury. The latter nodded
in the affirmative. The verdict was ordered
recorded and the jury were released.
THE CHAMPION WOBBIED.
Sullivan's face as the verdict was ren
dered was a studr. His look was not of dis
appointment or grief, but more of worry and
annoyance. He' showed no feeling in the
presence of the crowd and as "soon as ho
could get away from the Court House he
went by a back way, accompanied by several
of his faithful friends. He tried hard to
keep uphis spirits, singing a snatch of song
and forcing a laugh, but he was evidently a

bound train pass, and later on recovered his
usual merry mood and was social and as un

has been received here that all those who
had taken part in the Sullivan-Kilrain bat

Charlie Johnston, of Brooklyn, being
among the number. A reporter called at
Johnston's place and found that gentleman

"There is a rnmor, Mr. Johnston, that

ceived the telegram"
"From a friend in Purvis," and that is
all he would say upon that score.
"What will you do?" asked the reporter,
"Go on to Purvis and surrender?"
"I will go on to Purvis if they send for
me. I am right here if they want me, and
I am not going to run away."

- "Well, I don't know; they can't prove
that I backed Sullivan for a dollar's worth.
In the first place, the contract was not made
in this country, anyway, as I believe Toron

"What chances do you think your case
will have for a favorable issue?"
"Well, if they get us down there, they
have the advantage, as we will be out of the
way of auy assistance from our friends here.
It seems to me the Jaw is very funny that
they can extradite a man from New York
State on such a charge."

Yilliam Spell, their guide, started out on a
deer hunt. Another party which had
camped a short distance from the Pell party
were also hunting in the same deer lick.
This party consisted of three, Ellis H.
Roberts, of TJtica, James Sherman and their
guide whose name is Spinner. They had
not seen a deer all day long. '
The Pell party were in the bushes await
ing their chancer to shoot a deer on the
quiet It seems that the Roberts party
were not aware of this and as they were
only ten rods away heard the bushes crack.
Young Roberts quickly aimed bis Win
chester at a tan colored object that he
thought was a deer and fired and shot his
friend, Clarence tPell, dead. When he
reached the spot he found Pell stoue
dead in the hands of his guide.
Spell, was only a few feet away
when tho shot was fired. The
ball had struck Pell on the right
side passing through the left side and had
lodged in his wrapper. Pell wore a tan
colored coat, and at a glimpse in tbe woods
might easily be mistaken for a deer. Rob
erts says he only saw a little bit of Pell, and
as the bushes were shaking he thought it
was a deer. Pell was a member of the class
of '92 of Yale College.
Coroner K. W. Warren, of Hion, held an
inquest in Stuter's Hotel, White Lake Cor
ners, this afternoon. The verdict was that
Clarence Pell was accidentally shot by
Ellis Roberts, bnt Mr. Roberts was exoner

Stephen J. Field, Associate Justice of the
Supreme Court, was yesterday arrested on a
charge of murder, preferred by Mrs. Terry.
He applied for a writ of habeas corpus be
fore Judge Sawyer, who was also threatened
by Terry, and was released on $5,000 ball.
The funeral of the dead man was largely at
tended, but the California Supreme Court
refused to adjourn in hia memory.
Sah Fkakcisco, August 16. Justice
Stephen J. Field, of the United States
Supreme Court, was arrested here to-day on
tbe charge of being a party to the killing of
David S. Terry at Lathrop last Wednesday
morning. Applications were made at once
for a writ of habeas corpus, and the matter
was heard by Judge Sawyer, of the United
States Circuit Court, who granted the writ,
and released Justice Field on $5,000 bail.
The warrant for Justice Field's arrest was
issued by a Justice of the Peace in Stock
ton on complaint of Mrs. Sarah Althea
Terry. Sheriff Cunningham, 'of Stockton,
arrived here with the warrant last night,
and he applied to Judge Rix, of the Police
Court, this morning to indorse it Judge
Rix took tbe matter under advisement, and
asked the advice of District Attorney Page.
TBE WASBAXX EEQULAB.
The latter expressed the opinion that the
warrant should be indorsed; that it was
issued in regular form, and the Judge
should not consider the individuality of the
person against whom it was directed.
Counsel who appeared for Justice Field
urged the Judge to take testimony to ascer
tain if the warrant should have been issued.
He declared that the issuance of the warrant
was nothing more than an attempt to
humiliate a Jnstice of the Supreme Court
Judge Rix finally Indorsed the warrant,
and placed it in the hands of Sheriff Cun
ningham, who went at once to the United
States Appraisers' building, where Justice
Field's chambers are located. Justice Field
arrived at his chambers about noon, and,
with Judge Brewer, of Kansas, and Judge
Sawyer, awaited the arrival of the Sheriff.
Sheriff Cunningham went first to the Mar
shal's office, and then, accompanied bv Chief
ot Police Crowley, Captain Lees and United
States Marshal Franks, proceeded to Justice
ritACXD TJKDEE ABBEST.
Justice Field rose to receive the party,
and Sheriff Cunningham presented the war
rant and formally made the arrest Appli
cation was made at once for a writ of habeas

and the party retired to the Circuit Court
District Attorney Carey announced that

companied by David Nagle, a Deputy
United States Marshal, who was acting
under instructions from the Attorney Gen

Frank. The petitioner declares that he in
no way or manner defended or protected

Justice Field also sets forth in his peti

tsricxiL tzlxgbav to tub dispatch. J
New Yobk. August 16. There was a
mighty lively fire aboard the Brazilian mall
steamship Allianca, on July 8, while she
was 135 miles froiri Bahia and about 25
miles from the coast of Brazil. A faint out
line of the story of the fire got here a few
days later, in a very brief dispatch.
The Allianca is one of the very few steam
ships that were officered entirely by Yan
kees. That they are the right kind of peo
ple to have on shipboard in an emergency
is proved by the way they bandied the
Allianca when she was afire. Tho news
papers of Brazil are lavish in their praises
of the courage and coolness of Captain
Beers and his assistants.
The fire broke out about 9:30 o'clock at
night, in a front compartment midships,
where were stowed 45 casks-of rum and a lot
of cotton in bales How the fire started is
not known. A few minutes after the third
assistant engineer, Joseph Neptune, discov
ered it, the rum casks began to explode.
Nearly all the 85 passengers, including 45
women and children, many of whom were
Americans, had gone to bed. They got up
in a hurry and rushed on deck.
Capt Beers headed bis ship for the shore,
while Engineer Van Aderstine got out five
lines of hose and pumped water into the
compartment through the coal bunker
hatches. Anchor was dropped within five
miles of the coast, and all the passengers
were put aboard five lifeboats, which were
swung into the water. An officer had charge
of each boat
The captain, the engineer and his assist
ants and the crew stayed aboard the ship
and fought the fire until dawn, when they
got it under control. The only damage to
the hull of the steamer was the warning nf
plate on the starboard side. The officers
and crew were exhausted by the time they
got the fire under control. The carpenter
and half a dozen of the men were slightly
burned about the hands.
The passengers signed a paper compli
menting the captain and his men for their
gallantry. After the ship reached Bahia
$1,600 was raised to buy presents for the

K as 3 as Crnr, August 16. A special
from Muskogee, L T., says: Judge A. M.
Wilson is the only one of the Cherokee
Commissioners now in the Territory. Gen
eral Fairchild left yesterday to attend the
G. A. B encampment at Milwaukee. Ex
Governor Hartranft will probably resign,
inasmuch as his declining health necessi
tates a trip abroad. Judge Wilson leaves
to-morrow for Atoka, in the Choctaw coun
try, where he will examine the condition of
affairs there and ascertain what terms can be
made with the Indians there for the transfer
of-their claim upon the Cherokee strip.
It is the intention of the Commission to
avail themselves of that stipulation of the
treaty with the Government which provides
for the transfer of the Choctaws, Cbickasaws
and Arapahoes from their reservation to the
Cherokee reservation, and open up tbe for
mer, 1,000,000 acres in extent, to settlement
This can be accomplished within a year.
A NEW OIL FIELD DEVELOPED.
A Bis Gnsher Attracts Capitalists to West
MoBOANTOWir, W. Va., August 16.
The Smith & Aiken oil well equals the
first reports, which were to the effect that
she was a gusher, variously estimated at
from 300 to 600 barrels. The well was sunk
on what was supposed to be the eastern por
tion of the field and proves to be the heart
of the belt
Leading operators say this new West Vir
ginia field is the greatest white sand oil
field since the time of the Butler, Pa..
strike. The field covers an area ot several
miles and extends into Marion county. The
Standard Oil Company is after all the gas
territory to bold In reserve. The leases for
the most part are held by private parties cr
small corporations and the prices now being
paid for territory are fabulous. The influx
ot new capitalists has already begun.

London, August 16. The discussion of

to the Speaker to say whether, when the
amendments inserted practically constituted
a new bill, it was not the practice to with
draw the measure and introduce it as a new
bill if necessary.
The Speaker ruled tharabill so trans

r,000,000 IN OPTIONS HERE,
And EYery Paying Establishment In the
County Is Wanted.
A CLEAR INSIDE EXPOSE OF THE PLAIT,
Wiuca Aims Legitimately to Inrnt 1100,000,000 at
front in America.
The local representative and member of
the English syndicate that seeks to buy all
paying Allegheny county breweries tells all
about it He hints at $7,000,000 being out
in options here already. His Inside view
of the great project is full of interesting,
straightforward details the very first yet
printed, he says.
So much unanthenticated talk has been
going the rounds lately about the Brewers'
Trust, that The Dispatch made another,
and finally successful, effort last night to
find out something definite in regard to the
English syndicate's local operations. J. J.
O'Reiley, the representative in this city of
the syndicate, furnished a reporter with
some interesting facts, not surmises, in re
gard to the workings of that body. He was
very particular, however, about being
quoted exactly, and refused to talk until a
promise had been given him that his wishes
in this behalf would be observed. The fol
lowing is the story as he gave it to the re
porter: You may say, in the first place, that the En
glish syndicate is no myth. In addition to
being the agent of the syndicate in this city, I
am also a member of that body. It is composed
of shrewd, intelligent, cold and calculating
business men, most of whom are Englishmen,
but a few among them claiming America as
their home. The capital stock of tho whole
concern Is, at the very lowest calculation,
5100,000,000, and I may state that much of this
amount was made right here in America and in
SYNDICATE'S COtTKSE J-JSTIPIED.
Very many people are bitterly opposed to
the syndicate, because they imagine that
it is un-American, and that it is going
to hurt American industries. This is a
great mistake. No later than the other day a
scan met me and attacked me on tbe ground
that, if all the money were brought over here
no one would be able to secure more than 2 or 3
per cent on a 51.000,000 investment. I reDlied
that all I wished to have was (1,000,000 invested
at 3 per cent The English syndicate is a good
thing for Englishmen, and it Is a good
thing for Americans. It might seem strange
that most investments are made in this
country; but that is not strange, when we re
member that these Englishmen are shrewd
business men, and tbey are capable of recog
nizing a good investment when tbey see one.
We offer a fair price for all industries we pur
chase. The impression has gone abroad that
we will give almost any price for what we want.
This is wrong. Fair, reasonable and business
terms are what we offer. Even if we do buy
up these industries, the men bought out can in
vest their money in numberless paying indus
tries, which tho Englishmen cannot recognize,
owing to their long distance from us.
The capital stock, I have told you, is over
$100,000,000. About 40,000,000 ot this amount is
already invested in various points; but as yet,
none of it has been actually placed in Pitts
bnrg. Before the end of tbe year the remain
ing 560,000,000 will be in the pockets of tho
American manufacturers. Up to this time
most of the money has been invested in tha
brewing industries; bat not all or ir. The
syndicate is willing to purchase nothing but
old and well established industries. It don't
want to buy up stocks, as anyone can purchase
BIO PISH, OR NONE.
It will not bother at all with any purchases
under $1,000,000. For Instance 55,000,000 was
recently Invested in a fancy iron manufactur
ing establishment in New York, and over
54,000,000 was placed in various ways in Phila
delphia. Tho syndicate is an English corporation,
listed in London, with representatives in vari
ous parts of America. When negotiations for
the purchase of any establishment are com
pleted, tbe parties owning the Industry must
sign an elaborate agreement iThe reporter
was shown a copy of this agreement It has
been prepared by the best legal talent of En
gland, and before it is signed it Is usually sub
mitted to tbe best local legal talent It recites
in the most minute manner all the details of
the industry to ba purchased, and leaves no
loophole of escape for tbe contracting parties.
But before this agreement is signed,
another must be signed for the agent promis
ing to sign the first named article. When this
is done tho most expert accountants come over
from England and verify these agreements
and take a most accurate inventory of all the
belongings of the insnected industry. If there
is found to be the slightest flaw in any of tbe
representations of the parties selling, deduc
tions from the amount offered are made ac
cordingly. SOME SWEEPINO STATEMENTS.
We have 9,000,000 worth of breweries in our
pockets. We are going to buy every brewery
in Allegheny county, if money can buy. We
have given options on every brewery in the two
cities, with the exception ot one, and 1 will
visit tbe owners of that one next Monday.
Deals bare been concluded for three-fourths of
the best brewing establishments in the county,
and we are now waiting for the accountants to
come over and verify the accoants. We will
surely purchase all the rest, for the men
owning them would be foolish to withstand
our offers. A good price Is given to
those selling; they are at liberty to invest this
ready money as they please, and according to
the terms of our agreement they must remain
in the management of their establishments for
at least three years. Of course the brewers
will not admit that tbey bavo sold until their
statements bavo been verified by our ac
MISSTATEMENTS POINTED OCT.
The statements appearing in the press In the
past have been tbe veriest trash. On several
occasions it was given out that we had com
pleted aeals with men whom we had not even
approached. It was even claimed that the
parties whom we are going to see next Monday
had already sold. Over 525,000,000 bas been In
vested in various places that the public knows i
nothing at all about.
Ours Is not the only syndicate in America.
To my knowledge, there are at least three such
here to-day, and their purpose! often conflict
Our headquarters are in New York, and if any
deals were on baud for tbe large iron or steel
manufacturing establishments hereabouts thev
would probably be carried on at New York. X
have not beard of any; so it most be one of the
other syndicates which is dabbling in these.
In conclusion, I would state that tho papers
in the present brewery deal in this city are al
ready on their way to England to be verified.
Our expert accountant will be here next Tues
day, and our leading agent, from Jfew York, is
also on bis way to this city.
There is nothing underhand about our bus
iness. It Is not the intention of tbe syndicate
to create a monopoly in any line of business, or
to interfere with anybody. All its members
want is a profitable investment

Rochesteb, August 16. A photograph
developed an important fact to-day in the
inquest over those killed in the Forest
Lawn Railway accident now being held
here. Witnesses have all testified that the
engineer of the express train reversed the
lever before the accident occurred.
The picture indicates that the engine was
not reversed at the moment of collision. The
lever by which the link motion is controlled
by tbe engineer is not visible in the photo
graph, but a rod running from it to the .
shaft nu which tbe links are suspended is
plainly in view, and its position shows that
the steam was operating to move the engine
forward instead ot the reverse when. the col
lision took place.
