The train consisted of fifteen coaches
loaded with members cf the Cnion
Pacific Pioneers' Association of Omaha
and their families and Mends. The
excursion party left Omaha early In th
day for Logan. lowti. which was reached
at 10 a. m. and the day hud been pleas
antly spent. About seven o'clock the
Journey homeward was commenced.
The train had hardly passed the limits
of the city and was rounding a curve
when there came a crash. The excur
sion train had been run Into by a
fast freight known as No. 3. and all
the coaches were ditched. The scene
which followed Is Indescribable. Hnth
engines and the first passenger coach
were demolished. The engineers und
firemen nf both engines jumped and
scaped without serious Injury.
Conductor Moulin of the freight
train says he was runnig on orders and
the excursion train was not. The en
gineer and fireman of the excursion dis
appeared after the collision and this
lends credence to the Btory as told by
the frleght conductor.
The news spread like wild fire and
soon the newspaper offices, depots and
railroad headquarters were beselged by
a crowd of frantic people, who had rela
tives on the fated train. The crowds
did not scatter with the break of day,
although the excitement of the night
wore off as relatives and friends of the
dead ones became convinced of the
worst. About seven o'clock this morn
ing the first funeral train from the
scene arrived at the Union depot. The
first train contained many of the more
seriously injured, and twenty of them
were taken In ambulances to St. Jos
eph's hospital. Several of them can
not hope to live more than a few hours.
At 3.30 o'clock the train carrying the
dead arrived, containing seventeen
bodies which were taken one by one
and placed in long rows on the floor of
the baggage room. Only friends of the
missing ones were allowed admission.
Those silent forms gave evidence of
force of yesterday's colllsslon. Headless
trunks', bodies without limbs, limbs
without bodies, were gathered in that
small space. Occasionally some ane
would recognize the features of a son
or daughter. Kind friends would
gently lead them from the room and the
body would be ticketed and sent to

"My fellow citizens, recent events
have lmooscd upon the patriotic people
of this country a responsibility and a
duty greater than any since the civil
war. Then It was a struggle to pre
serve the Government of the Cnltcd
States. Now it Is a, struggle to pre
servet he financial honor ot' the Govern
ment of the I'nlted States. Cries ot

test to save the Union. Great up
plause.l Then section was arrayed

tions cuu unite, and will unite, to re
buke the repudiation of our obligations
and the debasement of our currency.
In this contest patriotism Is above
party and national honor s dearer than
any party name. The currency and
credit of the government are good now
and must be kept good forever. Oiu
trouble Is not with the character or the
money thut we have, but with the tlm-at
to debase It. We have the same cur
renev that we had In 1SH2. good the

people. Then, too, we had unexampled
credit and prosperity.
"Our difficulty now Is to get that
money in circulation and Invested In
productive enterprises which furnish
employment to American labor.iGreat
applause.) This Is ImiKisslble with the
distrust that hnngs over the country
at the present time, and every effort to
make ourdolalrs,, or nny one of them,
worth less than 100 cents each only
serves to Increase that diHtrust. What
we want Is a sound policy, financial
and industrial, which will give courage
and confidence to all, for when that Is
done the money now unemployed be
cause of fear for the future and lack
of confidence in investment, will quick
ly appear in the channels of trade.

"Having destroyed business nnd con
fidence by a free trnde policy it is now
proposed to make things still worse by
entering upon an era of depreciated
currency. Not content with the In

MR. SEWALL'S CAREER.
Arthur Sewall, who was nominated
for vice-president at Chicago, was
born In Bath, Me., un November 25, 1835,
and was the third son of the late Wil
liam D. Seiwall. He was educated In
the public schools uf Rath, and after
an apprenticeship under his father,
formed in 1854 with Is brother Edward,
the firm of K. (t A. Sewall. ship buil'ieis
and commission agents. The Ruth
Sewalls have been closely Identified
with Bath's chief Industry, shipbuild
ing, since 1823, when William D. Sewall
openeil the small shipyard on the banks
of the Kennebec, next to the family
homestead. He was succeeded In busi
ness by Clark & Sewall. These two
earlier firms built twenty-nine wooden
vessels between 1823 and 1854.
The firm of K. & A. Sewall was dls
solved In 1870 by the death of Edward
Sewall. This firm, In its twenty-four
years of existence, had built forty-six
wooden vessels. In 1879 Arthur Sewall,
his son William D. Sewall, and his
nephew, Samuel S. Bewail, a son of the
lute Edward Sewall formed the firm of
Arthur Sewall & Co., which Is still In
existence. The firm has built many
wooden vessels, among them being the
Rappahannock since burned at sea,
the Shenandoah, the Susquehanna,
three of the largest wooden ships ever
built, and the Ronnoke. the largest
wooden sailing vessel aoat.
To meet the conditions of the present
tme Arthur Bewail & Co. began some
years ago to equp their shipyard with
a plant for making steel vessels. They
built the first American clipper, Dlrigo.
Mr. Sewall was for many years prom
inent as a railroad man. He became a
director of the Maine Central Railroad
company In 1875. and n 1884 was elected
It president, serving In that capacity
until the election of Mr. Wilson several
years ago. During this time Mr. ewull
was also president of the Portland,
Mount Desert, and Machlas Steamboat
company. Mr. S-wall has been a direc
tor of some of the branch lines of th;
Atchison, Topeka and Sante Fe Rail
road, a director of the Mexican Central
Railway In 1S84, 18S5 and 1S86. He Is
also president of the Bath National
Mr. Sewall came out for free coinage
of silver in June. 1805. a fu-et which con
trbutcd to the refusal of his fellow del
egates to Chicago to continue him on
the National committee. Mr. Suwnll
was the Democratic candidate for
United States senator at tho session of
the Maine legislature In 1803. Mr. Se
wall has always made his home at Hath.
