Particulars of the accident at
Atlantic City.
Atlantic City, N.J., July 81.-The
list of killed in last night's disaster
foots up forty-two and injured forty-
three. This does uot include those
able to trsvel to their destination.
Philadelphia, Julv 31.���At 1 o'clock
this morning a special train from Atlantic City carrying passengers bound
to Brldgton snd vicinity pulled Into
West Jersey station. Camden. As tbe
engine came iuto the depot and stopped
in sight of survivors in four rear
coaches, who had been in the wrecked
train, the sight was pitiful. Persons
were to be seen reclining on the seats
with bandages about their heada from
which In some instances blood wss
trickling. In svery seat of the train
were either men, women or children,
who had received injury. The Reading express which out ths Brldgton
cxoursion Usln in iwo, was one of the
fastest regular trains on the system
and classified among flyers. Its
coaches were comfortably filled snd it
was running st the usual rate of speed
at the time of the accident. The engine struck the second passenger coach
of the excursion train with a terrific
force, difficult to imagine. The coach
was converted into a tangled msss of
splinters snd the occupants into a
mangled mass of blood snd flesh.
Scarcely one passenger in it, st the
time escaped death or fatal injuriss.
Dr. Charles A. Smith, one of tbe first
surgeons who reached the wreck, tells
this tale: "I saw the remains of the
Reading engine in s heap of scrsp iron
snd rubbish, piled up with the smashed ear.. The engine wss orushed so
completely it looked simply like a
scrap heap. I could not see whether
the engineer sua firemen were killed,
but they could not have escaped. The
wreckage caught fire from the ruins of
the engine, snd a Are engine from Atlantic City wss brought out. The
flames were soon subdued, although I
could not tell whether any victims had
boon burned to death. I saw one little
boy laid out ou tbe bank with his
clothes burned quite off him, but he
might have been dead before the flames
reached bim."
Ths Pullman car just behind the
Beading express did not leave tbs
track with ths cars in front of it; and
tbs inmates suffered little harm beyond
bruises, outs snd sprains. Thoss who
had bean spsred, on both trains, stood
about dssed and helpless until the
screams oi the wounded and dying
brought them to tbeir senses. Physicians, who bad been summoned (rom
Atlantic City and brought by special
train over the Psnnsylvsnis road,
cams in thick and fsst. Issststsd
them temporarily, dressing wounds in
tbs held, but it seemed ss if almost
every viotim pulled from the wreck
had been killed st the instant of ths
collision. I saw thc bodies of five
ohildren slds hy side on ths grass as
they bad beso lifted out.    The eights
sll sboutt me were heart-breaking and
"Mothers were looking for their
children and husbands for their wives,
'lhe sir was tilled with groans and
cries. I was asked to go to the hospital at Atlantic City, where the Injured were brought and put in bed.
As soon as I found there were enough
physicians in attendance I completed
my interrupted trip boms."
John Peters, of this city, who was
on the West Jersy train, and jumped
when he saw a collision was inevitable
arrived here this morning. He said:
"It seemed to me a* if both trains
were racing to catch the switch before
the other. As far as I could seo the
red light In the signal tower was up,
blocking the Reading train snd giving
the right of way to Pennnsylvania.
Neither train stopped, and then the
Reading train plowed its way through
tlie centre of the other.'-
"Escaping steam covered the wrecked train for a few minutes. When it
then could be seen broken oars and
dead and injured. I saw rescuers lift
out bodies scalded from the trunk up*
ward, with heads crushed to a pulp.
Several men were taken from the wreck
and before they could be placed in a
comfortable position, died."
Atlantic City, Aug. 1.���The impression prevails that tbe responsibility
for the accident rests upon the desd
engineer, Edward Fatr. There is no
dispute the signal was "comeahoad"
given to the West Jersey excursion
train, and if so, the danger signsl
must necessarily be given to the Reading track by an automatic arrangement
Signals then become locked snd cannot
be released* until both trains have
cleared the point. Before the signals
are manipulated, however, there is,
under ordinary circumstances, when
no trains sre in view, a red signal,
constantly displayed on both tracks.
Thus by experience alone, sll engineers
know they sre st least obliged to slow
up on the approaching crossing. The
theory is, however, thst Farr did not
slow up, and could not do so iu time
when he saw the West Jersey train
approaching. It is said hs wss lsid
off two weeks, not long ago, for not
making good time, and it is supposed-
he was trying to make up for this by
running at a bigh rats of speed. The
truth of the matter will probably not
be known until the end of the coroner's
inquest. This begins 10:30 o'clock on
Mondsy morning, sud Fireman
O'Houlahsn, of ths Resding train,
who saved his life by jumping, will be
the principal witness.
There are still five unidentified
bodies, victims of Thursday night's
wreck. They are lying in tbe shops
of various local undertakers and unless
frisnds or relatives of soms missing
excursionists sppear soon snd claim
the corpses, they will be buried iu
Potter's Field st the county's expense.
Several of thr injured are stiil lying in
a critical condition at the sanitarium.
A young woman about 19 years old,
wbo has been lying senseless st the
hospitsl sines the accident, recovered
consciousness for a few moments this
morning but is too ill to admit of
questioning on ths matter of identity.
Queen Victoria Mar Abdicate.
London, July 81.���Tbe rumor that
Queen Victoria intends to retire in
favor of the Prince of Wales is sgsin
current to-day. Court circles sre
greatly troubled regarding-ths condition of thc Quean's health. Suoh
reports have frequently appeared of
recent years only to bs seml-offically
contradicted later. But it now seems
thst there msy bs somo actual foundation for the statements, it is added
thst Her Majesty has decided to spend
ber time in future in Bslmorsl or st
Osborne snd thst shs will give ths
Prince snd Princess of WslHthsuse
of Buckingham palace and Windsor
castle.    There' Is  no doubt that tbe
Queen seems to feel greatly the weight
of her yesrs snd her bereavements snd
Her Majesty is quoted as having repeatedly remarked during her last stay
In this city at Buckingham palace
upon tbe occasion of the recent marriage of Princess Maude of Wales to
Prince Charles of Denmark: "This is
my last visit to London."
Color is given to the rumor in circulation by the deep emot on displayed
by the Queen as she bowed in reply to
the enthusiastic cheers of the multitudes which lined the route from
Buckingham palace to the railroad
station, where she took the train for
Windsor after the marringe ceremony.
Battle on Western Ranges.
Fossil, Wash., Aug. 1..-J. M.
Smouth, who arrived hers to-day from
Canyon City, brings news of a desperate battle between sheep men and oattle
men on Snow Mountain, southwest of
Canyon City, in Grant county, which
took place about a week ago. Smouth
was at Muddy station when the Mitchell-Antelope stage-driver brought
word to Mr. Smith, manager of Prins-
ville Sheep and Land Co., that Mr.
Kitchen, one of the company's employes, and three sheep men were
killed, aud two cattle men also siain.
Another sheep man killed wss Ernest
Shearer, nephew of Joseph Shearer,
the well known wool grower and buyer For years young Sheerer had been
buying and shipping sheep for his
uncle and on the occasion of the battle
he with several others, inoluding Mr.
Kitchen, were driving a band of sheep
scross ths country to the rsilrcad,
presumably Huntington, for shipment.
Many "sheep fights" had been reported
this j ear which had no foundation In
fact, but ��� this story Mr. Smouth ssys
is generally believed. There had been
hard feeling (or a long time between
cattle men snd sheep men in Oregon.
Numerous disputes hsve taken place
over the possession snd use of ranges,
csttle men asserting that shsep drove
tbe cattle from the range.

Upon the occasion of the 'it-ban*
niyeraary of The ErtA we lime to re--
turn thanks to our supporters. During the past five yours it hns binn our
endeavor to give to ihe public ti.e news
of the distriot nml while wo ha-e bad
occasion.to differ 111 our views on rer*
taln siihj-wts with others in the community, we do not expect 1 htit everyone, must think us we do; Ht the same
time we believe ourselves to lie right.
Looking buck over thi past year, a
casual observer is verv apt to bo misled as to the progress of East Kootenay, by hnviug his attention attracted
and his first impressions dazzled by
the large influx of mining men invading the Western Districts followed by
their invariable train of numerous
townsitcs and other calls upon the
public notice- here in Bast Kootenay
WC have nothing of this kind, although
possessing mineral riches not inferior
to those of any other district on tho'
continent, in addition to vast tracts of
agricultural and pastoral lands which
would alone make the wealth of a
Province. No boom, no outside advertisements, nd sensational reports,
have been the glory cf East Kootenay
hitherto; onlv in solid undemonstrative work of development, in quietness
and confidence, has this district been
gaining ground towards its ultimate
and assured position. To the starting
of the smelter, however, all the hope.
of this district naturally turn, as by
that voice only can our mineral wealth
really proclaim its existence to the
Outer world.'
One night when Mr. Isaac Reese
was stopping with me, says M. F.
Hatch, a prominent merchant of Quar
termaster, Washington, I heard bim
groaning.. On going to'his room I
found bim suffering from cramp colic.
He was in such agoity I feared he
would die. I hastily gave him a dose
Of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy, j He was soon relieved and the first words he uttered
were, "what was that stuff you gave
me?" I informed him. A few days
ago we were talking about his attack
and be said he was never without that
remedy now. 1 have used it in my
family (or several years. I know it
and do not hesitate to recommend it to
my (riends and customers. For sale
