Pittsburg, Pa., Sept. 13.���-Sixty
passengers were injured, nine seriously, by the overturning of a trailer attached to a train on the Homestead division of the Pittsburg Railway, company, near ehe Ciienwood
Bridge early ' today. The most seriously hui f. were taken to the hospital. , The otheis were able to proceed to their homes after having
their  injuries dressed.
The accident  was caused.by -' the
failure,of  the  brakes to  work  properly.   The car and the trader  were
crowded "to     their  fullest capacity,
many'' of  the passengers being  workmen < on  their  way to the various '
plants in the vicinity.     There, is a
steep grade, from the Glen wood bridge
to     Hays'    Junction,,   where  cars
branch    off  for   surrounding   points,
anil' great caution has to he used.
The  brakes  lefused  to' work, however,  and   Ihe  cars   descended-     the
grade with unusual  speed.  At Hays'
JuiicU'icri there is- a sharp curve. The
first car managed to round the curve
but_ the trailer,  carrying  sixty' passengers; was  thrown  from  the track

could be stopped.

Information   has   been   received .at
Harper's      Camp  of the death       of
John   Campbell���a   very  sad  and tra-���
gic affair. ' About  the 1st of July he
left Harper's Camp and went, up-the
llorselly   where he   had a claim.   Not]
returning      when   expected,   Government"'Agent  Stephenson   was,.informed  and he sent  ou.t a search  party.
When     the party  reached   the  place
where   Campbell's   camp  should   have
been  they     found it burnt and     no
sign  of     Campbell.    An  examination
was made of a tunnel close at hand
where.     Campbell  bad been  working
and   it was found  caved   in.    One   of
the     party  knew  pretty  near.,     the
length   of   the drift   and   a shaft was:
stink,     'Campbell's    dead   body   was
found   lying  close,   to  where  the  gravel had caved. It  is evident  that the
timbers caught (ire while, he was in
tho drift.   This  caused  the cave  and
shut-him  up   to die of suffocation.
The  deceased was  a pioneer miner
and is supposed   to   have come  from
Minnesota.   He was over 60 years oi
land Va}ley, and has now a working
bond. The terms of^the bond as
generally undeistood are that he is
to expend the" sum of $8,000 in six
months and if lie wants the property
then   is to pay  the sum  of $75,000.
Mr. Curtis in turn has transferred
his bond to Mr. John M. Turntoull,
of the Trail Smelter, who is said to
represent the C.P.R., but this may
be so", or may not. The deal is said
to run into six figures. Mr. Turn?

bull   in   Ashcroft   and   later   accompanied .them   to   Mie  mine,   for       it
was  clear something  was   doing   and
everyone knows what it means       to

It is the belief of those who have

The three-masted vessel  which is re-'
ported bottom up on the beach    of
the Alaska coast is believed    ,to bV
the schooner Peail, which sailed from
here     December  7,   1904,   and  from
which no word has,ever been received.-  'Ihe   identifying of one  of     the
bodies  which came ashore near the
wreck as   that of George F.  Ermc-rl-
mg,     who    shipped  on the  vessel,
proves that she is the Pearl.
If    this     proves true,  thirty-four
men were drowned.
A Marysviiie man claims to have
been cheated out of $175 in a horso
trade, and had the other fellow arrested on a charge of obtaining money under false pretenses. The defendant was discharged, but the case

The Vancouver Island companies
engaged in herring fishing are anxious to have some of the regulations
framed lately by the Dominion authorities altered, as it is claimed they injuriously affect their interests. Before Ralph Smith, JVL P., left for Ottawa he and the Fisheries Inspector.
Mr. Taylor, met representatives of
the companies and discussed the matter. One regulation setting the fishing time for night, they want changed to allow of fishing at any time in
(lie twenty-four hours. The desire
was also expressed to have a boat license instead of a net license as at
present: so that one boat might early three or four nets if desired, not,
1 owever, to exceed in the aggregate
200 Jaf horns and a sein net not to
exceed 100 fathoms. At present the
export of fresh herring is prohibited
and the desire of those interested in
the industry Is to have the regulations permit of the export otfrosh
herring for food purposee. ._
New York,  Sept. .12.���Dr.  Frederick  Schon-,  of Washington,  surgeon of
the Peary auxiliary steamer Erik, is
here  on   his way  home.    He  brings
news from  Commander Peary  nearly
a week later than the explorer's tele
gram  of August  1G,  at Etah,  report
ing     his   intention   to  cross,\ Smith
Sound,  which was at that time covered  with  ice,  from  Littleton island
to  Cape  Isabella,  and that he would
attempt to  establish abuse  at Ca'
Sabine.        The Erik  remained  aH-..
Pear's departure six  days at Eta!..
until   August 23.    Dr.  Schon reports
that shortly after Peary's departure
the'ice broke and  much  open  water
was   visible  between  Littleton      Island and Cape Sabine, and     that 12
hours  later < ascending  the mountain
immediately   to   the   north   of   Etah,
no sign of the Roosevelt could       be
seen at Payer Harbor, at Cape Sabine or anywhere  to   the west     or
north,while  two days  after  that,  or
on   the  21st. of   August,   the  second
officer of, the Erik reported from the
top   of the   mountain   a yamilhr   condition of affairs.      The inability   to
see  the Roosevelt  or her smoke     in
tho distance, the weather being perfectly   clear,   undoubtedly   is   a sigh'
that   favorable  conditions  had   ��r'<:.��i
of which Peary  had taken advantage

of reaching Lady Franklin Bay,' and
