Missouri Pacific Passenger Train
Filled With Excursionist
Meets Freight Train.
Kansas City, Mo , Oct. 10.—The sec-
ond section o( Missouri Paciffc pas-
senger train No. 30 from Wichita,
Kan., to St. Louis carrying World’s
fair excursionists, and a west bound
freight train, collided headon just east
of Warrensburg, Mo., eighty miles
southeast of Kansas City, early today.
The forward coach of the passenger
train was telescoped and the remain-
der of both trains badly damaged.
Twenty persons were killed outright
and many more injured, some of them
it is believed fatally.
According to local officers of the
Missouri Pacific, the engineer of the
freight was to blame for the wreck,
having forgotten his orders. He had
been ordered on the siding at Knob-
noster, just east of Warrensburg, but
neglected to do so. The trains met on
a sharp curve.

delivered excellent addresses.

STATE TREASURY SHORT.
Topeka, Kan , Oct. 10 —The state
accountant today made official report
to the governor in which he says he
has found shortages and irregularities
aggregating many thousands of dol-
lars in the state treasurer’s office.
Secretary Shaw predicted last De-
cember a deficit for 1904 -> of $2.3,002,-
146. How nearly this deficit will be
extinguished through the cuts made
by congress in the department’s esti-
mates remains to be determined. There
are as yet, however, no indications
that the year’s net disbursements will
greatly exceed its net receipts. With
an available cash balance on hand of
$139,716,179 the treasury can certainly
look with complacency on a possible
shortage next July of $.1,000,000 or
Muskogee, I T., Oct. 10. — There is
consierable uneasiness among some
of the notaries and city officials who
were scored in Judge Raymond’s
instructions to the jury, over anuoun-
c. merit that the grand jury in the
United States court, which has ended
its work for the October term, has re-
turned 125 indictments. The names of
the persons indicted are being closely
guarded as all are charged with crimi-
nal atfenses and none of them have
yet been arrested
It is understood that the grand jury
spent some time considering reports
of municipal grafting in Muskogee
and other towns in the Western dis-
trict but, whether tie indictments have
resulted from this investigation is not

yesterday, returned twenty-two ad-

“We visited the Philippines out of
patriotism,” said Mrs. Custer, “but
the China sea took all the patriotism
out of us. That is the most terrible
sea during a gale that it was ever my
misfortune to be on. But the Philip-
pines are noble islands and the United
States should guard them zealously.

DEATH RATE IN JAFAN.
Clarence Ludlow Brownnell, in his
recently published book on Japan,
says that the death rate for children
is lower in Japan than it is in Europe
and in America. This is as it should
be in a country where the houses are
off the ground a foot or two and have
no cellars, and the air inside is as
fresh as it is out; where, too, in such
places at least as Tokio everyone
bathes and has a good scrubbing every
day. From 800,000 to 1,000,000 per-
sons go to the public baths of the
capital daily, and there are tents of
thousands of private baths besides.
That is a good showing for a city
with a population of less than 2,000,-
