At the St. Nicholas Hotel Ijet night Mr.
Sweeney would not openly state that he
wan the orUlnul promoter of the St. Loul-
Terminal Depot Company, though he ex
presed pronounced Interest In the tclwme
of that lorporatlon to Increase the termlral
facilities in St. Ijou1, and incidentally
build the P.OX.0i bridge across the Mis
"While I am not a stockholder In this
ne companj." said Mr. Sweeney, "I think
I have proven In the pa.t that what I ad
vocate for the good of St. IoUli 'makes
good.' For Instance, a few ears ago the
Central Traction Company, which 1 helped
to organize, was reall tespontlble for the
intioductlon of the transfer system, of

worse condition than It was then In refer
ence to transfers. The Idea of shippers. In
a center as big and Important as St. Ixmls
Is, paying a "bridge arbitrary' across Kadn
bridge Is preposterous. And the only way
to abolish It Is by competition."
Mr. Sweeney would not admit, as had
been reported, that he had conferred with
certain railroads who are not In the Ter
minal Association In regard to their Join
ing the "third bridge" movement, and com
ing In on the improved terminal plans.

"But I can see," said Mr. Sweeney,
"where roads like the Southern. Illinois

Santa Fe would find nuO arrangements of

"For that matter." he added, with em
phasis, "it the City Council of SL Louis
grants the franchises asked by this new
terminal company the entire city would be
benefited, the congested freight facilities re
lieved and perhaps the Eads bridge arbi
trary would of necessity be removed. But
as I have said before, I am not connected
with the company, and therefore I can not
discuss the plans of Mr. Doremus and oth
ers who are seeking to give St, Louis some
thing It needs."
Mr. Sweeney Impressed the point that this
city Is growing at a rate which perhaps
most of the residents do not appreciate.
The wonderful development of the South
west, and the prosperity apparent In ad
jacent territory, are the contributing
causes. In hU opinion the point has been
reached where In many cases property own
ers should sacrifice what they deem to be
private rights, as In the matter of the con
demnation of land, to the public good.

INTEREST IX THE PEn.SON 1I.ITY'
OF THOMAS C. DOREMTJS.
Particular Interest attaches to (he perso -allty
of Thomas C. Doremus of New- York
City, who is the only man named among the
organliers of the St. Louis Terminal Depot
Company who does not live In St. Iouls.
He has had an extensive career as a rail
road builder, his latest connection having
been the Tennessee Central, which was
financed in this city.
Mr. Doremun la the second son of Pro
fessor R. Ogden Doremus. an eminent New
"York physician, and Is years old. Prior
to his entry into railroad building he was
a member of the New York Stock Ex
change, tt which he was elected In 1XSV.
Liter he was associated with the firm of
Henry S. Ives, "the young Napoleon of
Wall street." who failed In 15ST.
Doremus was reinstated after the smash,
which wag one of the greatest on record.
He Instituted a suit of damages against
the exchange for unseating him after the
At the time of the Ives failure the young
financier was only X. and five years pre
vious to that time he was working for Opy
dyke & Co.. In Wall street, for W a week.

shares of the old Mutual Union Telegraph
Company, which was about to consolidate
with the Western Union. Since then he

ADVISED TO DROrvcOXTROVKRSY.
Saline County Citizens Declare Yates's
Poller I Injuring- Them.
Epringfitld. III.. July 11. Goverror Yat-s
has been Indirectly advised through one of
hla friends and administration supporters
In Saline County to drop his controversy
with Sheriff Sam Barter of that county.
Vp to the present time It appears thit
Sheriff Barter has had all the best of the
argument with the executive, an;! Govern
or Y'ates's friend admits that the contro
versy stirred up by the Governor has re
(ulted In serious Injury to the party's
chances in Saline and adjoining counties
Governor Y'ates's advice comes in a per
sonal letter to one of the State officers
here and evidently was written for the sole
purpose of calling the Governor's attention
to the Injury he is wreaking the Republic
an party In Saline County. While the
writer of the letter professes sincere friend
ship for the Governor and heartily Indorses
the executive's views as set forth In the
two letters written Sheriff Barter, ho says
there Is a disposition among the Republic
ans of Saline County to criticise the Gov
ernor's letters as unnecessarily severe, es
pecially as It Is apparent that Sheriff Bar
ter has exerted every effort to do his full
duty in protecting the negroes of his county.
The Governor's second letter to Sheriff
Barter, admitting himself In error when the
first letter was written, has tended to preju
dice farther the people of Eldorado and
Saline County against the Governor's
course. It la generally believed, according
to the statements coming from Saline
County, that the trouble there was all
over with until Governor Yates started his
political controversy with Sheriff Barter.
A telegram was received to -day by Ad
jutant General Smith from Assistant Adju
tant General Ewert. who was sent to Eldo

Have asked State Attorney at Harrisburg
to corae and look over the situation with
me. Send COO (caliber 30) cartridges "
In response to Colonel Ewert's request.
