one of the most prominent figures in

from view. He .was the first presi
dent of the great trust' which controls
the world’s sugar market, though
he was succeeded a few years ago
by n younger brother, Henry .().
Havemeyer, the vice president of the
company. Of the two, Theodore has
been, perhaps, the better known so
cially, while the younger brother j s a
tower of prominence in business. It
was the latter who looked after the
larger interests of the firm anil after
wards of the consolidated companies.
It was he who conceived and brought
about the consolidation, and lie has
been the ruling and governing spirit
in the sugar trust.
REDUCES PRICES OF COAL.
Fxport Product Can Be Put in Mobile.
Alabama, at small Cost.
The result of opening up tho War
rior river, in Alabama, it is said, has
been to reduce the cost of coal deliv
ered at Mobile by about $1.60 per ton.
The conditions under which coal is
being mined along tho Warrior are
very crude, and whet, the development
has assumed moie extensive propor-
tions and more ttferfect and elaborate
methods are employed, export coal
will undoubtedly be mined at very
much less than t ie present cost.

Tbe Nelson Bill AVliicli I-nsse.l the Senate
a Simple Measure.
The bankruptcy bill passed by the
senate Thursday was framed by -■■■mi
tor Nelson, of Minnesota, and j very ,
brief and simple, compared with he
bill reported from the judiciary oin
mitte, known as the Toney bill.
The Nelson bill provides tli.n any

Sympathy for Greece.
The first reference in congress to
J the Tnrko-Grecian war came soon af
j ter the senate opened Thursday, when
I Mr. • Allen, of Nebraska, introduced
i the following resolution:
Resolved, That the established policy of
the United States of avoiding entangling
alliance with the European powers is in no
respect violated by our sympathizing with
the Christian people of Greece in their
present heroic struggle against the advance
ment of the Ottoman empire; and that, in
the judgment of the senate, it would be a
recognition of the wishes of all, for tho
executive to express to the government of
Greece the sympathy of the American peo
Mr. Allen supported the resolution
by citing precedents in which the
United States had expressed sympat by
for those struggling against oppres
sion. He also read from manuscript
a detailed statement of the affairs of
Crete from early times.
At the request of Chairman Davis,
of the foreign relations committee, the
Allen resolution was referred to the
foreign relations committee, Mr. Davis
promising speedy action.

MORE WORK OE TRAIN
Another disastrous wreck, caused
evidently by the band of wreckers
which has played havoc with the
Louisiville and Nashville’s roads in
Alabama of late, was visited on that
company’s No. 3 southbound passen

Asa result three men are dead, two
others are said to be dying and a num
ber of others are less seriously injured.
The train left Montgomery at 9:40
p. m , loaded down with passengers.
It was going rapidly when it reached
Wilcox, a little station seventy-two
miles south of Montgomery.
Just beyond Wilcox is an ugly tres
tle. When the engine reached it the
wheels left the track, broke through
the trestle and the engine, the mail,
baggage and smoking cars were piled
in a heap in the little stream Iwjow.
Engineer Alvin Adams, of Mobile,
and Fireman Jordan Jones, colored,
were fatally injured, being scalded.
Both have since died. An unknown

crossties had been drawn and the rails
pushed seven or eight inches out of
line and pinned down again.
The heavy engine when it struck the
crossties crushed through the bridge,
the foremost cars following it, but the
other par t of the train broke loose and
saved perhaps a hundred lives.
Dogs were put on the trail of the
wreckers about noon and two negro
suspects have been arrested. The chase
is being continued, however, with all
vigor. The detective force of the
Louisville and Nashville road have
been working assiduously for months
trying to discover the mysterious
wreckers, but with little effect.
FIVE-STORY BUILDING COLLAPSES
Two Hundred People Kmployed Therein
Have a Fortunate Eficape.
Half of the five-story brick building
owned and occupied by the Atlanta
Paper Company, at Atlanta, collapsed
and fell in a mass of debris at 7:30
o’clock Thursday night.
The big building was being repaired
and the front wall on Pryor street had
been propped up so that the lower
sections of it could be strengthened.
The supports were evidently not suffi
cient to sustain the great weight of
the top floors, and without warning
the crash came.
Had the building collapsed two
hours earlier the death list would
have been very large. About 200
persons, mostly young girls, are em
ployed by the Atlanta Paper Company
and the Empire Printing Company
aud they left the building just before
6 o’clock for their homes, leaving only
the night watchman and aif office boy
in the building. Both of the latter
narrowly escaped the collapse.

DAMAGES AGAINST CONSTABLES.
.Imllfe Simnnton Rentier* Another Deris-*
ion on South Carolina Law.
In the case of Willhim Beckroge,
against YV. J. Hailing- and L. C.
Boach, in the United States court at
Charleston, S. C., Friday, the plaintiff
was awarded SBOO damages for the
seizure of a trunk full of whisky made
by the defendants as state constables.
In his charge to the jury Judge Si
monton said that ordinarily the seiz
ure xvithout warrant of a package, as
in the present case, was a ease of tres
Harling and Roach, however, aver
that the fact that they were constables
was justification of their act. They
claimed the legislature as their author
ity for their act, but Judge Simontou
showed that the acts of the legislature
were limited by the federal constitu
tion and laws, and the legislature
could pass no act in conflict with the
United States laws.
Judge Simontou charged that the
seizure was a violation of the United
States commerce act recognized by law
by the state of South Carolina. Judge
Simonton explained the Wilson bill
and showed that it was only intended
to assist the enforcement of the prohi
bition laws, but it could be of no ef
fect in this state under present cir
cumstances, where the entire state is
dotted with liquor shops.
The result of this suit means a great
deal of money to liquor dealers ail
over the north who ship to Charleston
purchasers for personal use.
The attorney general has given no
tice of his intention to make a motion
for anew trial.
SMALL KANSAS CYCLO E.
Houses Blown Down, Cattle Killed and
Several People Injured.
A small tornado which passed one
mile west of Newton, lias., Friday
night wrecked several houses, injured
three occupants, killed many cattle,
uprooted orchards and groves, and
smashed thousands of panes of glass.
J. W. Weams had an arm broken, his
wife was rendered unconscious and
was severely bruised, and the little
daughter of J. C. Chandler was slight
ly hurt. It is not thought that any
fatalities will result.
The storm happily spent itself a
short way outside of Newton and
wrought no further damage. The
storm lasted only fifteen minutes. It
came from the southwest aud was pre
ceded by a heavy rainfall and followed
py a terrific hailstorm.
