NEW YORKERS IN WASHINGTON.
WasniMaTOK, Die. 18.-Thevitit of New York
Democratic statesmen to Waihlngton tut week
snd the promise of the comln of other statesmen
Ibis week, have set the politicians all by the ears.
The most sstnte ot them declsre that New
York's active Democratic politicians propose to re
move all doubt as to New York's position In the
next campaign, but that they cannot be suocesif ul In
their plan without the aid of the Administration.
They have come to Waihlngton to obtain that aid.
They say that the Ilepubllcana have been removed
from one-half of the Federal places In the State
and that by next electlon,dsr almost as many moro
changes will be made. The terms of man; post
masters, nominated by Gen. Arthur, will expire
daring the next six mouths. It Is theac places that'
with others In tno several custom-houBcs In the
Mtsto the politicians are after, ltrniibllcatl par
tisans of tho Hrnators Sherman, lulmumls and
Hoar stamp will naturally epposo any movement to
ouit tiielr Ueouullcn friends, but liberal party
men, such as Senators Allison and Plumb, admit
to tnelr friends tnat the Democrats have control of
the ship and should cenalnly select the onicers and
crew, If thay are competent.
The headquarters for New Yorkers In Washing
ton Is the Arlington. If the average New York
politician arrives here after nightfall he can be
found within tho hour at Chamberlln's. Here It
la that the New Yorkers hold their caucuses snd
conferences. It Is a political headquarters. More
Johahave been arrunued there tins winter, more
schemes discussed and moro patronage parcelled
out than In anr other public houac In town. Here
la heard tho fiery eloquence of Judge Timothy J
Campbell, urging the apiolntment of one of bis
constituents as a ganger In tho Cuatom-IIonac, or
the suave requeat of Congressman Stahlnecker to
retain an old frlond as doorkeeper In the Douse,
Amonat tho visiting New York Btateamen was the
new Democratlo Benator from Saratoga, John
Foley. Ho was started In politics by Edward
Kearney, who, next to Judge Hilton. Is the largest
land-owner In Saratoga. Foley haa been Ulstnct
Atinrney, and made an excellent record. Ho Is
one of tho brightest lawyera In Northern Now
York. When he received the nomination for State
Senator he bad very little hopo of carrying tho dis
trict, as his predecessor, Comptroller-elect Kd
ward Wemple was elected by only twenty plurality.
Hot Wemple and Foley are noth popular and
worked the dlatrlctlndetatlgahlr. Foley la about
thirty-six, tsll and dark, with a heavy black mus
tache. He will bo heard from In the Senate.
' Is that Crazy Horse Maxwell," asked a South
ern Senator of Col. Murphy at tho Itiggs House the
other night. "I havo heard of him for years, but
never met him till this evening. " This title, given
to the lutavla politician many years ago, when 11
was tho fashion to bestow names ot Indians upon
prominent workers In both parties, hss almost been
lost among nls tr lends at home. The present Su
perintendent of Insurance got it because
of bis political rcstleasncss snd activ
ity. He was one of the foremoat men
to recognize Mr. Cleveland's availability, and
has followed the fortunes of the Frcsldout, right
or wrong, through thick snd thin, ever since.
Maxwell was ol Invaluable service to Gov. Hill
during tho campaign of 1S5 and to-day Is one of
the Governor's moat truated friends. No man In
the party holds the same relatione to the l'resldent
and to tho Governor as Mr. Maxwell. He la a
"hustler," as tho term goes, snd Beldom falls In
anvthlnghe undertakes. He la one of thn most
adroit pblltlcal managers In the State, and very
rarely la hut band seen.
There la considerable trepidation In tho Post
Office and Interior departments over the expected
tranafer of the heads. Secretary Lamar will cer
tainly be confirmed by the Senate as Associate
Justice ot tho Supreme Court, and Postmaster
General VUaasa Secretary of tho Interior In place
of Mr. Lamar. Whlln not displeased with Secre
tary Lamar's administration, the President Is un
derstood to havo begun to realize tho necesalty of
having an actlvo bualness man at the head of tha
department. Mr. Lamar Is a very hard worker, is
at bla poat every morning before 8 o'clock, never
leaves ttll after S In tho afternoon, and, aa a rule,
carries home sufficient work for two men to ac
complish belore morning. He Inalats upon know
ing everthing of Importance that goes on In hla
department, of giving his own personal attention
to every caae of prominence, even to the extent of
looking up his own authorities, and upon examln
lug carefullr and deliberately every pper to which
he attaches his name, in consequence, while the
work ot the department has been done with thor
oughness and exactness, It has fallen very much
To his friends, Postmaster-General Vtlaa has
made no secret ot his unwllllnzneas to give up his
comfurtable quarters In the I'ost-Offlce Depart
ment. He has mastered tho details o( that depart
ment as nono of nls predecessors has done, with
the exception ol Tnomos I-James. The work of
his derailment Is up to date, while that of the In
terior Department is not. Next to Mr. Whitney,
Mr. Vilas Is the ablest business man In trie Cabinet.
He la tho most economical. Ho haa cut down the
expenses of nls department 40 per rent, slnco the
Hi publlcuns departed, while Increasing the eni
clenoy of tue acrvloe. It was In recognition of the
signal ability he has displayed In the l'ost-omeo
Department that Mr. Cleveland hai ttanaterred
him to the Interior Dipurtment, where a man of
bis executive capacity seems to be needed.
Like Mr. Vllaa, hla successor, Mr. Don M. Dick
inson, unites political shrewdness with great bual
ness ability. Mr. Dickinson will And the depart
ment when he assumes charge In splendid conill
dltlon. Many of the clerks including the ltepohll
rana who are left, are considerably exercised,
however, oor their lato within the next six
months. Mr. Dickinson waa aelected by tbe Treat-
neut not because he la a politician, nut necauso he
la a business man. The clerks In the department
regard htm In frar aud trembling as a partisan wlih
a merciless proclivity for decapitating all Republi
can orucc-uolders who come within his reach.
Mrs. Cleveland has discovered what the Presi
dent would havo dono well had ho discovered
mouths ago, that she can walk out every day
without molestation or annoyance. Dnnug tho
charming da) slnsi week the mWticesof tae White
House, or, as the women correspondents call her,
" tho Urn lady in the 1 mil," was seen on l'ennayl
vauta avenue alone or with one of her guests. Mrs.
Cleveland is a rapid walker, but frequently stopped,
uttracted by some novelty In a shop window. Tue
prints uud pnotoirrnphs have made her face fa
miliar to tho multitude and yet but few persons
recognized her, and tnose who did only turned
their ueads. There was no lmnudent staling. The
Innovation Inaugurated by Mrs. Cleveland ouirht
to tie adopted by the President, An hour's consll
tutlonil ou the avenue every afternoon would
make a different man of him In six tuonthi. Gen.
Graut took his airing almost every pleasant day,
and Gen. Arthur's Bwinglug walk la still dlacuaacd
Old politicians, who are expert In diagnosing tho

Cole has been posing for over a month as Piatt's
good boy. It has been heralded throughout the

generally accepted as being true because of
Piatt's well-known hostility to Husted.
There Is no doubt that many of Piatt's lieuten
ants have been working for Cole, aud It Is also a
fact that several of ex-Senator Warner Wlller's
adherents bave been decoyed Into the Cole camp.
Lately, however, It has icen rumored that ex

The cabbies oontlnned their strike sgilnst the
leading liverymen this morning, as predicted In
Tnx World's evening edition ot Dec 6.
All hands, Including ICO drivers and ISO stable
men, struck at Ityerson & Urown'a (New York Cab
Company's) stables this morning at an early hour
for an advanco of wages and shorter hours of
work, snd also for a contract requiring the com.
pany to enter into an arrangement for the ensuing
year, whereby It would employ Its help at the
ratea demanded and grant them shorter hours.
Somo of tbe Btablcmen went to work at tho usual
hour this morning at the company's stable In West
Thirty-second street, near blxtb avenu", and alter
throning a pile of manure out on the s'.dcwalk
struck and refused to load it into cart. One man
attempted to put the manure back Into the base
ment, when some of the strikers ordered blm to
A policeman was called to protect the man.
The manure was put back Into tbe basement.
The strikers remain about the corners of sixth
avenue and Thirty-second street. They aro orderly
Mr. Drown, general manager of the company,
aald that there waa a difference between the men
and the company about wages and hours of work,
but that the committee which waited on him asked
him to algn u rontract guarauteelng employment to
all handa at the new terms for aycaraud herefused
to do ao.
To a reporter for The Wont.u Mr. Brown said that
the business of the company was stopped, and
that any one who callod for a vehicle was told that
there was none.
He also said that the bualness had been very dull
during the year Just closing, and that the strlko
wonld have a bad effect upon it. He would con
sult the other offlcera of tbe company, and after
getting their opinions they would decide what
courao to purauc.
No new handa had applied for work np to noon,
but applications aro expected. If tho company
decldea to decline the request for a yearly contract
aleps will be tsken to employ a new force of men
under police protection.
Capt. ltellly, of the Nineteenth Precinct, has his
men tn hand to suppress anv dlstmbance, outdoes
not look for any trouble. Most of the largo stables
aro in his precinct.
There wero rumors that strikes would take place
In Bevcral otner stables before ibo day closet
The men who were granted their demands at
Seatch's, Snorey's, Daly's aud Hartnett'a stables
are all at work.
The strike at Ityerson A Brown's has caused a
great pressure for conveyances on the other stables,
and business with the latter la rushing.
The Executive Board of District Assembly No. 49,
to which the Cabmen's Liberty Dawn Association Is
attached, has Invited Mr. Drown to meet with It
and confer upon a basts of settlement. Do said

DASHED TO THEIR DEATH.
Additional Particulars of the Intercolonial
Hallway Accident Near llntburat.
Isrrciii, to rax wonr.D.1
ST. JonK, N. 11., Dec. 19. Additional particulars
of the disaster which occurred on the Intercolonial
Hallway at Mcintosh's Covo Saturday afternoon
show that tho engine, tender and snowplough were
detached from the train on tho Bathurat sldo ot the
Caraquet Diver, and a dash made through the
heavy drift ot snow on the bridge. The engineer
turned on steam, and eight of the twelve men who
were aboard sped on to their death.
No one. knows how It happened. The lookers
only know that the plough, locomotive and tender
left the track In the centre of the bridge and
plunged Into the raging river below. The eight
men were crushed, torn to pieces, burned and
drowned. How the four escaped Is miraculous.
The names of the killed are:
Conductor Keahney, of Douglasstown, Mlra-
mlchl, single, twenty-five years old, soon to
have been married.
Driver Limioan, of Bathurst, married, leaves six
children; aged thirty-one.
Felix Hol-cmeu, fireman, ofJJathurst, single, aged
Joseph Viennan, section man, of Bathurst, leaves
five children; aged thirty.
John IUulin, section man, of Caraquet, married,
leaves a Urge family; aged thirty.
Octave Pinnett, section man of caraquet, single,
Jodn cahney, of Bathurat, married, leaves five
children; age thirty.
Frank Miller, of Bathurat, single, ago twenty,
passenger, who was the only support of a
All the bodies have been recovered.
Just before the plough started young Miller
lamped unoard for the fun ot the thing. Little d d
he dream that It would be his ride to death. Some
of the men were killed outright. The cries or the
others were heartrending as they called for heln.
The pasengerB on the train hastened to tho scene
Instantly and venturing ont on the river, did their
utmost to rxtrlcate the unfortunate party. Being
without Implements, they made no progress, and
were compelled to witness the deith of the helpless
men. A relief train was Bummoncd as soon as
possible, tun In order to do so a messenger was
des ratched back to the nearest station. The hours
wore ou until midnight, and still the bravo passen
gers kept at their task ot tryluj to help the Im
prisoned men. It was alter midnight before tne
Teller train from Bitnurs', earning physicians aud
road officials, made Its appearance.
On tne relief train came t e wives and little ch'l
dren ot the train hand, who had heard of the acci
dent and begged permission to po down to he
bridge. Several of the dead mn had laree fami
lies, and the children cried nlteonsiy as they saw
the mangled bodies of their fathirs taken from tho
river. The work or the rescuerB this morning v as

The cause of tho accident Is a mvsterv. as ths
bridge was apparently In good condition and all
clear wnen the plough started acr ss. Supt.
Chlsholm, who witnessed the accident, examined
the bridge Immediately atterwards and found
everything all right. The rails even were nut dis
placed. Previously, however, there havo been two
attempts to wreck trains by placing obstructions
