express car, smoking car, two day
coaches, and three sleepers in the order
Tbe passenger cars were well filled,
and many of tbe occupants of tbe sleep
log-ears hud retired. Suddenly tbe
passengers felt a rough motion as it
tbe cars were rolling over tbe ties. In
a few seconds the cars toppled oyer the
embankment into tbe sand fifteen feet
below tbe level of the track. Tbe en

The cars turned over flit on their sides
and many passengers were thrown vio

J. Spear, of 114 West Ninety-seventh
street, New York, was one of the pas
sengers. He said: "I think that the
rails spread while we were running at
rapid rate around the curve, and
that threw us off the track. The en
gine was detaobed from tbe tender,
and that prevented tbe wreck taking
fire. The oil poured out of the lamps,
but we put the lights out. We had a
miraculous escape from death.'

in the United States and abroad in re

Pope Leo notified Archbishop Sntolli,

London, Aug. 81. The Times re
ferring to Canada's accordance with
the resolution of the colonial oonfer

of 30,000. and be finished in throe

tne question is entering ine stage In
wolou tbe governments concerned have
to decide tbe part tbey mean to take.
Tbe question, moreover, is not purely
a financial one. Tbe main considera
tion being public utility, the nation

this position for Great Britain thev are

DEMOCRATIC DISSENSION REAL
The President's Attack Upon the Sen

and the Members May Retaliate at
the Coming Sessions The Entire

Three Cuckoos, Arrayed Against
Washington, Aug. m
tPHE renomiuation by Mr. Cleve
. II land of a large number of pres-
idential postmasters who were
U not confirmed by the senat nn l
the nominations of new nun, chiefly ia
New York, but also in other parts of
tbe country, will probably be bnt for a
brief term of servioe. From tbe pres
ent temper of Democratic senators it is
wsrrautable to assume that none, or
next to none, will be confirmed at tbe
next sesnion of tbe senate.
The war between the administration
and the senate on tbe openiug of con
gress will be much more open and un
compromising Ibuu heretofore. It was
possible for tbe President to accomp
lish something in the senate before by
combinations and tbe uniting of Demo
cratic votes with Republican, to secure
confirmations, and, once in a while, to
accomplish something else desired by
the administration. In other words tbe
antagonism has besn between indivi
dual senators and the administration.
Now it is tbe whole senate against
the administration, with not half a
dozen In the body ready to take np Mr,
Cleveland's tight. The Democratic sen
ators stand by Mr. Gorman from habit.
and because they feel it to be a matter
of eelf-defence to hold a solid front
against any encronchment by tbe ex
ecutive. SENATORIAL RESENTMENT.
Moreover, they regard Mr. Cleve
land's attacks upou the senate as gen
eral, involving the whole body, with
tbe possible exception of two or three
cuskoos. and their resentment is gen
eral. There Is a great deal. of bitter
ness in tbe row between Sanator Gib

clares that tbe nomination ehall not be
confirmed. Mr. Gorman will, of course,
take up the fight, and senatorial cour
tesy will require hie his democratic
colleagues to stand by blm.. - -
Mr. Briee has become involved with
some nomination, to which he ia op
posed, and tbe desire to strike back at
Cleveland, more than any feeling of
friendship for Hill or Murpby. will lead
the senate to refuse compliance in the
New York appointments It is doubt
ful whether any of thosa nominations
will bold the beneficiaries lu office
longer than until the meeting of cou
gresi. Tbe assertion that and intimation of
lack of harmony between the members
from tbe senate and the members from
the houss on the congressional cam
paign committee is without founda
tion and absnrd, is a quibble. The
committee is just about as harmonious
as were tbe two houses of congress dur
ing tbe tariff fight, and no more so.
They are in perfect harmony as
long hs they can keep away
from tbe tariff question. The trouble
as stated yesterday, is one threatened,

REVIEW OF TRADE.
The Financial Situation as Viewed by
R. G. Dun & Co.
New Yohk, Aug. 81. R. G. Dun &

Tbe aotivity whioh fame with ex
hausted stocks and the pressure of de
layed fall demands, and was increased
by tbs removal or uncsrtainty about
the tariff, has continued with heavy
entries of foreign goods since ths bill
became a law. But tbe people who
know best are saying. "Improvemsot
will come." rather than "Improvement
has some." Tne gain Is not yet what
has been expected, and business, if
good in comparison with last year,
is still poor in comparison
with years preoeding. Presumably
there has not been time to feel ths fall
effects of tbe cbsnge, and a gradual
gain will be more healthy and encour
aging than a spasmodic one, but the
expansion of commercial loans has sud
denly cesssd, prices of manufastured

THEV ARE CHEERFUL CONTRIBUTORS
Soranton Taxpayers Do Not All Take
Advantage of the Time Extension.
Mayor Conn ell yesterday signed the
resolution extending the time for the col
lection of city taxes until Jan. 1. Not
withstanding tbe fact that it was freely
sdvertised that this extension would be
given, hundreds of people flocked to the
citv treasurer's offloe every day since the
collecting began, showing conclusively
that Soranton taxpayers are cheerful con
tributors. Deputy City Treasurer Ruane said yes
terday that tbe average collections since
Aug. 21 amounted to abont 14.000 per day.
When it is considered that this money is
paid in by those who pay several taxes,
and who do not stop to consider the mat
ter of interest on their money, it oan be
readily seen that no small number of peo
ple have within the last few days stepped
up to the oity treasurer's desk.
