New Bern, N. C, Nov. 29. The
details of a disastrous shipwreck on
the North Carolina coast, that of the
two masted schooner Leading Breeze
of Key West, Fla., have just been re
ceived. The vessel wa9 bound for
Key West, hailing from New York,
with a cargo of 200 tons of concrete
stone and an assortment of wrecking
During the big gale of the 23d
the schooner was sighted in distress
from the life taving station at Ports
mouth. At the entrance to Ocracoke
Inlet. There was a heavy sea and
the gale from the southwest drove
a heavy rain across tho beach and
the fog at the time shut out all view.
Capt. F. G. Tyrrell of the life saving
station cave orders to run out the
surf boat when at 2:45 p. m. the
lookout through a rift in the fog
bank discovered the ship aground
and lying broadside to the breakers
The hardy boatmen, stout North
Carolinians, ran the boat into the
boiling sea, put up what sail the life
boat could carry, and bent six long
oars to the task.
There was a strong flood tide, a
blasting rain riving against them,
and progress was slow, so that dark
ness began to approach. When only
half way to the wreck several huge
green seas were seen to sweep a-
gainst the schooner and she was seen
to be breaking up and soon was a
mass of wreckage tossing on the
water. It was a temptation to turn
back but the brave fellows bent to
their oars and kept on to see if any
living person could be fdund. Their
' reward was great, for iu a little lime
they came upon a large section of
the wreck, consisting of the deck
house of the ship, and on this weie
four men, ihe entire crew. They
had lashed themselves to the sky
light and were still alive and were
taken of? into the life boat.
When the vessel went to pieces
the four men had managed to secure
themselves on this part of the wreck
and the tide was floating them to
wards the shore. It was near the
height of the flood and in a short
time the ebb tide would have carried
them out to sea and to their death.
The life savers reached the beach in
safety and landed with the rescued
sailors who were taken to the station
and given the best of care and at
tention. The schooner is a total loss
and the disaster falls heavily on
her captain and owner, B. W. John
son, as there was no insurance.
There is no better crew of life
savers on the coast than those who
patrol the shore frpm Ocracoke Inlet
to the south. It is a wave swept
stretch of low lying land and at
places the heavy seas will sweep
across the narrow strip into Pamlico
Sound. In the great tidal storm
several years ago the water covered
the entire land, except a few hil
locks, teveral feet deep. The water
in the station itself was 18 inches
deep on the floor. The small set
tlement of Portsuit-u'ih lies half a
miles from the station. This part
of the coast is thickly strewn with
the debries of good ships that a lee
shore has caught and destroyed.
collisions than there were soldiers
killed in the whole Spanish war.
With efficient and sufficient help
and with intelligent and careful
management there would not be so
many terrible accidents and such
frightful loss of life.

cide by shooting himself behind the
right ear with a pistol.
A great sensation was created
when the last edition of one evening
paper appeared with a story, in sub
stance, that accounteants were at
work on the books of the retiring
City Treasurer, , Stuart R. Young,
and that it was reported that dis
crepancies had been found in his
Shortly after 6 p. m., Mr. Young
was seen at tbe ladies' entrance of
the Louisville Hotel on Main street,
where he lived with his bride of
few months. Two newsboys who
knew Mr. Young ran up and said:
"Mr. Young, don't you want a pa
per? it's got your picture in it."
One glance at the docble column
headlines told Mr. Young why the
paper had printed a double column
picture of him. He walked down
Sixth street towards the river, the
newsboys following him en the
other side of the street. Just after
passing Nelson street Mr. Young
turned off between some box cars.
The boys feared to follow him any
fursher and returning to the Louis
ville Hotel described Mr. Young's
action to 'Kid' Johnson, a hackman.
Johnson was acquainted with Young
and going the direction given by
the newsboys, finally found Mr
Young lying face downward in the
cinders, his right arm under him.
Seeing a bullet hole behind Mr.
Young's right ear, Johnson turned
the body over. Then he . saw a
pistol in Mr. Young's right hand.
Life was extinct.
Stuart R. Young was thirty-five
years old and one of the most promi
nent men in Louisville. He was a
graduate of Princeton University, a
son of Colonel Bennett H. Young, a
prominent lawyer and former Con
federate soldier of Louisville, and a
brother of Lawrence Young, of
Chicago, President of the Washing
ton Park Jockey Club.
resent them. Macon said at once
he would not obey the summons.
Hearing of this, General Greene saw
him and inquired the reason for his
extraordinary action. Macon re
plied by saying that he ' hid often
seen the faces of the British but Jin
tended to stay in the army till he
saw their backs." Greene realized
that men of that mould were net d
ed in the Legislature. He also re
alized that a private who had served
through three gloomy years with
out pay or promotion and still chose
the hardships of the camp rather
than the comforts of the General
Assembly, would not reconsider his
action unless he felt .that by so do
ing he could better serve his coun
try. It was to this very spirit of
patriotism, therefore, that Greene
appealed, and he finally convinced
the young soldier that he could be
more service to his country in re
presentative tnan in individual ca
pacity. Taking this view of the
case, Macon decided to obey the
summons; and so ended nis military
career and began his political life.
And ail must admit tnat ne was as
"faithful over the ftw things" as a
private soldier as he was faithful to
greater trusts as a statesman.

President Theodore Roosevelt had
stopped off on his way ba;k to Wash
ington from Oyster Bay and climbed
a dark stairway to the- second floor
of the house, 150 East Forty-eighth
street, Manhattan, to call upon the
old nurse, Mrs. Mary Ledwith, who
had nursed not only Mm. Roosevelt
herself when the was a baby, but
all ot the children of Mrs. Roose
velt and the President.
"Yes, she is here," said Mra,
Flynn, who is Aun,t Mary's siater;
"but I can't see who you are."
"Just say it's 'Mr. Roosevelt.
and that I want to see her. Trianon
I came up to see how she is.'
Mrs. Flymn, though she had
known the Roosevelt's for many
years, was not unnaturally a bit
"flustered" by the honor of a visit
from the President of the United
States, with his secretary and valet
and detectives waiting outside.
She ushered him into her little
sitting-room and then went and ac

invalid's chair in another room.
"It's the President of the United
States, and he has come up to see
you," said Mrs. Flynn.
"The President of the United

"Certainly," and he says to tell you
that if you are not too ill he wants
to see you."

ED IN A COLLISION.
UANY ON BOARD SLOWLY ROASTED-
Having given this brief sketch of
his life, I shall now say something
of Macon's character and political
principles. In politics, he was a
member of the original Republican
later known as the Democratic
party. Honesty, independence,
faith in the ability of the people to
settle properly all political questions
and opposition to all unnecessary
(and perhaps some necessary) appro
priations, were his strong points;
He was democratic in the broad
est and deepest sense of that word.
He opposed the adoption of the
United States Constitution because
he did not consider it democratic
enough, and refused to endorse the
work of the State Constitutional
Convention of 1835, chiefly became
the uew constitution did not pro
vide for annual elections, which he
considered "a fundamental principle
of republican liberty." "The peo
ple," said he, "should pass upou the
acts f heir representatives at least
once a year. I prefer the t-mpest
of liberty to the calm of despotism "
Macon wished to keep all political
power directly in the hands of the
people. More than once he com
plained of the constantly increasing
power oi the executive department
of the government. He would ac
cept no office "not the gift of the
people or of their immediate repre
sentatives, the Legislature." Twice
he refused a position in Jefferson's
cabinet but the insignificant office,

people of his county directly called I '

Detroit, Mich., Nov. 27. From
100 to 150 persons were killed or
injured to-night in the most disast
rous wreck in the history of Michi
gan railroads. Two heavily loaded
passenger trains on the Wabash rail
road collided head on at full speed
east of Ssneca, the second station
west of Adrian.
The westbound train of twe cars
loaded with immigrants and five
other coaches, was mashed and burn
ed with the result of awful loss of
life and fearful injuries to a majority
of its passengers. The east bound
train, the Continental Limited, suf
fered in scarcely less degree.
The track in the vicinity of the
wreck is strewn with dead and dy
ing. Many physicians from Detroit
have gone to the scene.
No. 4 was the Continental Limit
ed, engine 609, engineer Strong,
conductor G. J. Martin, and No. 13,
double-headed, engine 88, Engineer
Work, engine 151, engineer Parks,
conductor Charles Troll. No. 4 it is
believed, disobeyed orders in not
waiting at Seneca for No. 13, there
by causing the wreck. The track at
the point where the collision occur
red was straight and at first the
officials could not understand why
the collision should have occurred.
No. 13 which ordinarily is due to
leave Detroit at 2:30 o'clock, was
two hours late, leaving at 4:20. The
two trains met at Montpeller, Ohio,
according to schedule, but No. 4 had
orders to wait for No. 13 at Seneca.
The blame is therefore placed on the
conductor or engineer of No. 4. Had
this train been held at Seneca, the
accident would not have accurred.
No. 4 was due at Seneca at 6:43 ac
cording to the change in schedule,
but apparently orders to wait were
disobeyed, and the probabilities are
that the true story of why will never
be told as the train crew undoubted
ly met instant death.
Advice from the wreck at mid
night state that the country for
miles around is lighted by the burn
ing cars ana that the names could .
not be quenched because of lack of
proper apparatus. Mangled bodies
were picked up along the track by
the farmers before the special train
arrived. In some places the bodies
were mangled beyond all recogni
tion. The bodies which the res- ?
curs managed to pull from the burn
ing ruins of the immigrant cars
were so badly burned that their
identity will probably never be
It is not thought that any Detroit
people are injured, as train No. 3,
immediately behind No. 13 con
tained the Detroit passengers for
No. 4, eastbound, was made up
of an engine, baggage car, combina
tion coach and sleeper. The trains
came together one mile east of
Seneca under a full head of steam.
All but the two rear coaches of No.
13, the westbound train, were de
molished and the coach on No. 4
was telescoped. Five of the cars of
train No. 13 caught fire. The loss
pf life is estimated at 100 on the
train. The loss of life on No. 4 is
skid to be 25. Engines 2o. 88 of
train 13 exploded and engine 609 on
No. 4 turned over into' a ditch.
