The A. T. & S. F. Railroad com-
pany have posted an offer of five thou-
sand dOVurs reward $r O'^en- :
cient to convict the parties who caus-
ed the wreck in Colorado, between
Mazonola and bowler, October 3°>
when the • Colorado-Chicago special
was wrecked. Three rail, joints were
lemoved, the engine, two baggage
cars and two coaches were ruined.
Thirty persons were injured, four ot
whom were seriously liuit. None
were killed. It is thought that the
purpose of the criminals was to rob
bankers, as a delegation of eastern
bankers were on the train, returning
from the big meeting at ban Fransisco.
The K. C. Journal says: “The
.great activity in establishing a govern-
ment in Panama and in thus giving
.relief for that country is causing the
delegates to congress from -territories
■ to wonder how it is they cannot bet
similar accomidatior.s. .Delegate Mc-
Guire would be gl d to get merely
statehood for Oklahoma set apart as
a separate government, although it
would make a nation far more mi-
. posing and would be. ablr to sustain
a greater navy than Panama and couk.
put up a thousand times better army.
With all these-superior qualities, Okla-
homa and other territories, including
.the Indian country, command fai less
attention than Panama. Ot couite,
none of the territories have ?. canal or
canals on tap, and are not located on
the map in a way.to be oi inter .ration-
.al importance, but the friends ol state-

• Bill Passes
'The ouban reciprocity bill passed
the House by a large majority. Aftet
long explanations of their attitude,
coupled with denudations of the Ding-
tariff, the democrats announced their
intention of supporting, the bill, and
are seeking some credit for their act-
ions by declaring that the republicans
could not pass the bill without them.
They were bitter against the majority
because they had not been permitted
to present a host of amendments to
the bill, denounced the ‘'gag-rule”,
and after they were reminded that
they had formerly used the same tac-
tics, they consoled themselves with
threats of revenge when the House
should come under their contrbi.
Most of their speeches-were tariff ar-
guments intended for campaign , pur-
poses at home and >as soon -as ’the
printing office can get 'them out, they
will be distrubutdd tc democratic con-
stituents. T he bill will ■ probably
meet with slight opposition .11 the Sen-
aid. Two thirds of that body are or
record as in favor of the treaty, and
after a few explanatory, speeches the
bill will be voted on, perhaps in time
to adjourn the extra session before
