Terrible Railway Disaster in France
No Americans Were Among
Paris. September 10 The disaster
to the Paris and Cologne express train
at Apilly, between Noyon and Cbnuny,
yesterday, was more serious than at
first supposed. The first estimates
placed tbe number of persons killed
at ten, with tweuty injured. It is now
stated that from forty to sixty persons
were Killed or injured. The bodies of
twelve doad persons have already been
taken from the wreck. Tbe minister
of publio works, M. Barthou, and a
number of railway officials have gone
to tbe scene of tbe accident,
' It is knowji that the accident was due
to the slow-shunting of a freight train
at Apilly. Tne engineer of the express
train saw the cars on tho track, and re
versed bis engine, reducing the speed
of bis train and thereby saving a num
ber of lives. Tbe shoek of the collision
was very great, but the three front
cars sustained tbe brunt of the dam
age, As soon as the accident became
known a number of priests aud pbvsV
cians hurried to the railroad station
and did everything possible to assist
the injured and dying travelers. Ter
rible scenes jvere witnessed when the
railroad ofUJlals and others began to
clear awuy the wreck. Several of the
dead were frightfully mangled, and
some had tbeir heads severed from their
b ii dies.
It was reported, soon after the acci
dent occurred, that tbe station-master
at Apilly bad committed suicide by
jumping in front of tbe express train
wneu ne saw tnat a collision was in
evitable. This was not true. He ran
along the truck trying to signal to tbe

Miss Gulbert a certiorari was taken
and after a transcript from the alder

ber attorney raised the point that
there was no case against ber on tbe
ground that the record did not spsoify
whether or not thw offense against the
statute was committed on Sunday, or
words to that effect.
It simply complained that on the 0;h
day of May, 1894, the defendant had

The pith of JudgrtAroh bald's opinion
is summed up in tbe following brief

nothing in the eompluint to suggest
that the 6th day of May was Sunday.

n CCORDING to an official state
ill nu-nt mndn here the Japanese

Uu The Hi-Y'-i is a composite veisel
of 2,284 tons, 2,227 horse power, carry
ing twenty-four guns and estimated to
have a sea speed of nineteen knots.
Ili-Yei engaged the Chinese cruiser
Chin-Yuen. The latter is n protected
cruiser, built in England, of 2,800 tons,
steaming 18 J knots per hour and carry
ing three 8 inch Krupps, two 0-inch
Armstrongs, protected by plintor-proof
shields, in addition to eight 6-pound
rapid-fire Hotchkiss gum, six Gatling
iMiiis aud four torpedo tubes. Tbe Hi
Yei was disabled, but she succte led in
getting away and making for Japan,
but sank on her way borne.
It is presumed that the dispatch from
Tien Tsin announcing the sinking of
tbe Japanese cruiser Hi-Yei refers to
tbe warship which was disabled in July
last. Dispatches received by tbe Asso

"On July 25 tbe Chinese twin screw

in tbe morning and lasted forty-ei'bt
hours. At the commencement tho
Chinose sailors refused to work tbeir
guns, but five of tnem ware Bbot by
tbeir own officers, and the others
fought so well that tbey raked the
Japanese fore and aft and carried
away a bridge, killing tbe Japanese
admiral. But tbe Japanese picked
off all exposed persons on the Cut-Yuen
and exploded a shell on ber deck, kill

a large undienee.
Tbe epeuiug of tbe fifth season was
most auspicious, and Manager Davis is
as attentive as of yore to the comforts
of his patrons as well as to tbe ex
cellence of the programme.
The programme for tbe present week
is vaudeville in character, and opens
with a ''Drawing Room Reception,"
which was splendidly presented yester
day. Miss Emma Cotrely's feats of
juguling were highly applauded, but
tbe most noteworthy feature of the re

formance of Little Tot, who accom
panies herself with great skill on tbe
banjo. The audience demanded a repi
tltion, aud Bbe complied by singing
"Keep it Dark," aud tbe pointed refer

was keenly enjoyed by all.
Tne audience gave a prolonged en

MISS COGHLAN'i WELCOME.
Her Performance of Diplomacy Well Re
oelved at the Frothinffhami
It is not stating the case over-strougly
to say that Victorien Surdou is the
greatest living dramatist. It is not
stating the case ovcr-strongly to say
that Sardou's play, "Diplomacy,"
makes as muoU ndo with as fw and as
intrinsically insignificant incidents as
any other modern play. Indued this is
where S.irdou's skill; nay, his genius,
is most in evidrnco. It is tho triumph
of this nrtist that ha touches trivialities
and makes them tragic.
"Diplomacy," in t:;o hands of Misi
Cogulau's oapable players, with herself
in her old part of Cjuutiiss Zlck i, as
sumes an intensity of interest that is
at once a tribute to tbe author's skill
aud to tbe actor's art. Mr. De B.-lie-ville,

The performance was iu all respects
n brilliant one and it was greeted, ns
it deserved, by a brilliant audience.

E have now been six days out,
and are becoming accustomed
to the ocean. None of us baa
been sea-sick so far. as we have
had beantifnl weather all tbe way out,
except for a little roughness which we
encountered lust evening. I am get
ting very tired of the sameness of the
horizon, aud long for the land, not
withstanding tne fact that we have a
ship full of jolly and intorosting passen
gers. We have passed several sailing
boats, and a largo but rather slow sail
ing steamor, the Westernland, whioh
sails to Antwerp. How swift we all
felt as we steamed up to it, passed, and
left it lumbering along in our rear.
But today we can appreciate tbe feel
iugs of the Westernland passengers, as
there is an unmistakable ocean grey
hound wbich bits overtaken ns this
morning, and is now showing us her
heels, as she passes us. We are upon
deck watching it. Everything inter
ests ns out hers. Tbe ocean is so mo
notonous that tbe whole saloon just
flies to tbe vessel's railing when any
thing is reported as seen on the hori
zon. Even porpoises playing in the
water are interesting to ns.
Steamer life is rather interesting,
and n gam sometimes very dull. We
rise from our berths in the morning,
dress, run up on deck to breath tbe
(rssb air, scamper down to the saloon
again to breakfast, then, armed with
our trash novels, shawls, pillow, rnes,
ap we go on deck and pass tbe time
reading, gossiping, promenading and
wondering what we will have for din
ner. We make a mad rush for tbe
saloon npon the ringing of tbe dinner
bell, and after dinner the routine is
the same, with tbe variation of an after
noon nup, und some little mild excite
ment in the way of watching the var
ious flirtations going on about tbe
The passengers are very interesting.
We have with ns almost all tbe Euro
pean nationalities and, of course, young
America is holding his own with the
rest of tbe world. There is a young
Californian and bis sister on board who
are on tbeir way to South Africa and
who are already dead tired of traveling,
poor things) We have plenty of Ger
mans witb us and very nice ones they
are, too. One of tbem is an entertain
ing young man, something of a physi
ognomist, who did me tbe kindness tbe
other day to tell my fortune from a
phrenological point of view. His anal
ysis of character was not so bad, either.
He read the bead of another of our
party for me and bit tbe nail on the
bead exactly. I was much amused at
bis saccuts, as tho young man's nppsar
aoce belies bis Bowery tondtncies
with respect both to his speech and
manner of judging other people.
We have quite a social time in tho
evening. At present we are scattered
arouud tbe saloon at ths tables, soma
playing cards, soma talking, others
writing home. A picaninny baud, go
ing to England by this ship, are mak
ing night hideous with the strains of
their music, as it floats up to us from
the steerage, somewhere in tbe bowels
of tho earth, or ship, rather. This
band is made np of ten or twelve ao
tual boys, colored ones, from the age of
8 or 9 up to young manhood, and they
play like imps of darkness. Their
loader is a man of rathor impressive
appearance and stands iu tho center of

EXrLOUINO THF, STEAMSHIP.
Today a young friend of mine, an
American boy, took mi on an explor
ing tour out in the front of this hnge
boat. We stopped and watched tho
fumades, and the stroker shoveling
coal nnd culm into the big red holes..
That was too hot to look at long, und
we went ou and visited the baker in his
little marhle-fiuislied bake-roora. We
talked with him awhile iu a very con
titling manner and at last succeeded in
cajoling him ont of son;e delicious
small pastry, whioh we put in our
pockets while we went to see tbe
butcher und tbe other bukor, with both
of whom we struck np an acquaintance
with a well considered view to the
benefits which might arise therefrom
After "jollyiug" these personages
rather systematically we loft witb our
spoils and rejoined our party, causiug

As a matter of fact we are all always
huugry. Tbe perfeet weather which
we have bod has sharpened onr
appetites, and we all wonder, when
one meal Is done, what we shall have
for tbe next. At present ws are wait
for onr 0 o'clock p. m. lunoh and are all
scattered about tbe saloon enuaeed in
.various occupations, or in none at all
in most eases, before it oomes on tbe
table. Our mild-eyed French musical
critio is reading Herbert Sponsor, every
onoa in a while looking np to ask tbe
meaning of some Euglish word like

painstakingly explain to him, mostly
by the ol j -ct lesson system. A skittish
yonug lauy of about 45 years is prome
nading around the room with bur little
grip in h r hand. This grip contains
all ber worldly wealth evidently, nnd
instead of sensibly giving it to thj pur
ser to keep for her in bis strong box,
she carries it arouud all over, to meals,
on dock, promenading, an-1 all. Tho
othor day she fell itsleep on dock in her
steamer chair, and tho suspicious little
grip lay on the duck fljjr beside her,
all unnoticed, and I pitied her so, that
I sat down near her and becama her
watchdog till she awoke, when I gavs
her a sound lecture on her infantile
way of advertising to the ship her pos
session of valuables by carrying thorn
around with her in that manner. She
