Thirty People Meet Death on Rock
Island Railroad Near
MANY INJURED WERE BURNED TO DEATH
Forty Persons Were Hurt 12 of Them
Seriously—Two Passenger Trains
Meet Head-on While Running at
Full Speed—Dead Mostly Mexican
Topeka, Kan., Jan., 2.—On'? of the
most disastrous wrecks in 'he history
of the Rock Island railway svatem oc-
curred early Wednesday morn'ng five
miles east of Alta Vista, 50 miles
west of Topeka, when passenger
trains No. 29, south-bounJ. and No.
30, northbound, collided head-on
while traveling at a high rate of
speed The brunt of the collision
was sustained by train No. 29, which
was heavily laden with passengers.
I lie cars on this train went into the
Uitch and several of them caught fire
and were consumed. Close to 30 per
sons, mostly Mexican labor is in fb«
smoking car on No. 29, lost their
lives. Many of them pinned in the
wreckage were burned to death and
only their ashes remain. Forty per-
sons were Injured, 12 of the injured
were seriously hurt and it Is believed
half of these will die. The Mex-
icans were enroute to El Paso to
work for the Rock Island railroad.
Clarence Dauchy, a son of the for-
mer chief engineer of the Rock Is-
land, is said to be one of t!~.e serious-
ly Injured. Another of the injured
gave hi3 name as Douglas* and re-
quested his wife to be notified and
them lasped Into unconsciousness.
One of the Pullmans on the train was
occupied by a carload of men who
were homeseekers en route for the
southwest. These men were In
charge of L. D. Higgins, of Washing-
ton, Iowa, and all escaped serious In-
juries. There were several injured
women among the chair car passen-
gers. One woman was suffering
with a broken leg and was unable to
walk while an Infant child who was
with her, was uninjured. On® old
lady who was so badly shaken that
she could not walk was very plucky
all through the rescue work and
would not allow any of the rescuers
to aid her. Few of the passengers
on No. 30 were injured and none
killed. Several, howerver, were bad-
ly burned in their heroic rescue work,
W. A. Dutch, who is a traveling man
aud makes Kansas City his headquar-
ters, was in the foremost Pullman on
But few trainmen were injured.
The engineers and firemen of both
trains and most of the trainmen
jumped in time to save themselves.
The express messenger on No. 29 is
John Lynes, the telegraph operat-
or at Volland, who appears to be re-
sponsible for the collision has been
arrested. Lynes received an order
to stop both trains at Volland but
let No. 29 slip by. When he real-
ized what he had done he wired the
train dispatcher: "No. 29 has gone
and I have gone also." Then he fled.
He was captured shortly before noon.
On the second relfef train reach-
ing Topeka at noon from the scene
of the wreck were nine dead bodies.
Two white men and seven Mexicans.
One of the dead was William Thom-
as Miller, riding on the blind baggage
of Not. 30. Another was an Iowa sol-
dier on a furlough from Iowa.
Four of the injured brought to To-
peka on the first train have died.
Up to noon hour tne kock lsiana
officials had been unable to attempt
with success the preparation of a list
of the dead, the great majority of
Whom were Mexicans and their
bodies were so burned that identifi-
cation was almost impossible.
A list of the most seriously in-
jured has been prepared and they
number 24, seven of whom were Mex-
icans. They are.:

The Man Who Exposed Insurance
Fraud is Now Governor of
HIS FIRST MESSAGE TO LEGISLATURE
Recommends a Re-Count of the Votes
Cast for Mayor of New York in
1905—Would Limit Amount of
Money a Candidate May Expend
Albany, N. Y., Jan. 2.—Charles
Evans Hughes Tuesday took the oath
of office as governor of the state of
New York with his democratic col-
leagues began his two years' term.
The retiring governor, Frank W.
Higgins formally surrendered the
reins of government to his succes
Bor and left late for his home, a pri-
vate citizen for the first time since
1893, when he was rirst elected sen-
ator. The inaugural ceremonies wtie
unusually brilliant and attendance al-
Following them, the new govern™
held a reception in the executive
chamber and he and Mrs. Hughes re-
ceived a cordial welcome from a very
large number of people from Albany
and elsewhere, In the usual public
reception at the executive mansion.
Gov. Chas. E. Hughes, in his first
message to the legislature delivered
Wednesday, made the following re-
A re-count of the votes cast for
mayor In the New York City election
In 1905, when, on the face of the re-
turns, W. R. Hearst, was defeated by
George B. McClellan; that the courts
be empowered to order a re-count
summarily and that the power to
bring an action to try a title to office
be taken from the attorney general
and conferred upon the supreme
The adoption of a new ballot
whereupon the name of a candidate
will appear but once.
That the amount of money which
a candidate may expend to procure
his election be limited.
That the courts be empowered to
review the acts of political state con-
ventions and state committees In ex-
pelling delegates and members.
That any general committee ot a
party may adopt rules for direct nom-
inations of candidates at primaries.
That the state board of railroad
commissioners and the commission
of gas and electricity shall be abol-
ished and a new board be constituted
with power to enforce its orders
through the courts. On the Hearsi
re-count matter the governor said:
"It is a matter of the gravest con-
cern that the view should be largely,
even though erroneously, held that
one who has been elected to office
has been deprived of his seat through
Invalid returns. The failure to ob-
tain a summary recount through a
defect in the law has aggravated the
sense of injustice."
Referring to the lack of any lim.
itation upon the authority of political
state conventions and state commit-
tees arbitrarily to exclude honestly
elected delegates and members and
the fact that the fraudulent or cor-
rupt action of such a convention or
committee cannot be reviewed or cor-
rected by any court the governor de-
clared that 'minorities should not be
permitted to make themselves major-
ities by the arbitrary seizure of poli-
tical organizations nor through cor-
ruption or dishonest methods and the
courts should be vested with equal
power to review in a summary man-
ner all such abuses and to restore to
defrauded persons the political rights
to which they are justly entitled."
The present scheme of regulation
of railroad operations in this state,
the governor said, Is Inadequate be-
cause the board of railroad commis-
sioners has no authority to compel
compliance with its decisions. The
expenses of the commission, the gov-
ernor asserted, should not be borne
by the corporations which It regu-
lates. Enactment of laws to secure
Impartial treatment to shippers and
Insure more regard for public con-
venience and safety is recommended.
Appeal to Congress.
Tulsa, I. T., Jan. 2.—Mrs. Sarah A.
Payne ,of Fort Smith, and other
prominent Cherokee women have pre-
pared a memorial to congress asking
that body to set aside the decision
of the supreme court of recent date
which abrogated the rights of inter-
married whites. The memorial is be-
ing largely signed throughout the
Cherokee nation. Th suit affects
3,000 men and property to the extent

St. Louis Girl Fires a Bullet at
Judge McDonald During
Session of Court
SHE WAS A DISAPPOINTED LITI6ANT
Rosa Weil, the Would-be Assassin,
Was Disarmed and Arrested Be-
fore She Could Fire a 8econd Shot
—Judge Was Uninjured and Pro-
ceeded With Court.
St. Louis, Jan. 2.—Just after Judge
J. A. McDonald, of the circuit court
had convened court Wednesday morn-
ing, Miss Rosa Wiel suddenly rose
from among the spectators and fired
point blank with a revolver at the
judge. The bullet miseed him. She
was disarmed and arrested. She was
a litigant in a case concerning a
disputed inheritance that was tried
before Judge McDonald two months
Rosa Weil, accompanied by her
olderr sister, Clara Weil, entered the
court room a few minutes before
court convened and quietly took seats
on the second spectators' bench back
of the railing. Their appearance at-
tracted no attention and they sat
quietly watching the proceeding as
Judge McDonald entered from hi3
private chamber and took his seat on
the bench. Motions were offered in
a pending case and an attorney had
started to address the court when
Rosa Weil, without warning, Btood up
with a levelled revolver and fired at
Judge McDonald. F. L. Wetzel, a
witness, sitting nearest her seized
her before she could fire a second
time and several ottier persons near
by sprang to the woman and
wrenched the revolver from her
hand. She maintained remarkable
composure and said In a calm tone,
"I ought to have got him." Deputy
Sheriff Frank Burns took both wo-
men Into custod.
Judge McDonald did not arise from
hla seat during the excitement.
"Take that woman out of the court
room," he said to Deputy Sheriff
Burns and when the woman had been
led from the room and order re-
stored the judge turned to several at-
torneys who were waiting to make
motions and said: "Proceed, gentle-
Rosa Well Is the daughter of Mrs.
Ellze Well and was displeased with
Judge McDonald's adverse decision
on November 2 In the case In which
her mother sought by raising a ques-
tion of legitimacy of her first born
child to deprive her grandchild of a
share in the estate of her husband,
the late Aug. Weil.
Both girls are held on informations
isued by Circuit Attorney Sager
charging each with assault with in-
tent to kill. When court recessed at
noon Judge McDonald said that he
had no personal feeling against the
young women and would not person-
ally prosecute them.

Clerk David Langley, who Issues th«
Informations against alleged offenders
of the police regulations, was up
against a queer kind of game th®
other morning that for several mo-
ments caused him to exercise his
thinking machinery quite rapidly.
He was hard at work at his desk
when a colered woman came into the
office and blurted out that Bhe wanted
a warrant for a male friend of hers.
"For what ofTense?" Inquired Mr.
The woman stood still for a moment
as if in thought, and then replied, "For
This was a new one for Langley,
but he braced himself and set to work
to solve It.
"You must be wrong," he said.
"What did he do to you?"
"Oh, he said I was a peach, and
then he used a brick on my hald," was
the reply. The visitor was sent up-
stairs to ask Mr. Weyrlck of the dis-
trict attorney's office for a warrant
for assault and battery.
