TBS WASHINGTON LIGHT INFANTBT MC
KENT.-At a meeting of the Washington Lo
Infantry Charitable Association, held
Thursday evening, a number of plans, for
proposed monument over their Callen ci
rades were presented, bot no final action
taxes, the discussion being postponed t
meeting to be called on the ensuing Tnt
day. Eight different plans were laid be!
the association, of which six wero from i
city, one from Augusta and one from Coh
bia. Mr. W. T. White furnished three, soi
what similar in design, yet sufficiently uni
to provoke sharp criticism-the princi
feature being a tali and graceful shaft ria
. from an ornamental pedistal. Mr. E. R. Wt
presented two plans elaborately drawn, i
both admirably suited for the purpose
tended. Mr. A. F. Chevereux has only a sin
design, which was unlike those already m
tioned, but chaste, and suffioently ornamen
as to at onco attract the eye. Messrs. Byrni
Spraul, of Columbia, sent a plan which, thou
neat, bas hardly the original. Mr. Th
Markwalter, of Augusta, furnished a plan tl
has given general satisfaction. The style
unique and graceful, being somewhat like t
Jones monument, at Magnolia, though 01
different scale. It is to be constructed fri
Georgia marble of a chocolate color, with gi
lettering. As the association have taken
action in the premises, it is difficult to surm
what their choice will ba. While there ii
general desire to award the contract to
Charlestonian, there are few who do not th i
the design from Augusta, if carried out accoi
inp to the proposed pl in, will give the asi
ci a rion a monument that will be a fitting tea
monial to the gallant dead.
THE DRUMMERS-WHAT SOME PEOJ ,. THI:
or THEM.-THE NEWS has, during the last s
weeks, mentioned the arrest, by the detective
of a large number of drummers from North?
cities. Of late, there have been comparative
few arrests, and very few payments to the oil
treasury, and we must either conclude th
they now give Charleston the "go by," i
manage to evade the detectives, and also tl
law, requiring them to pay three dollars ti
oa every hundred dollars' worth of goods sol
There are some dealers here who think th
the tax imposed apon drummers is too beay
and argue that if the city would grant licens
to travelling salesmen from other cities for t<
days or two weeks, the reveane from this ti
would be very much increased and nobot
would be injured by it. That, of course,
would be unfair and unjust to the dealets
Charleston who have to pay licenses to transa,
their business and who live here, pay taxe
here and spend their money here, for the eil
to permit travelling salesmen to come here I
compete with these dealers without paying fi
the privilege also, bat it seems unjust I
charge a travelling man who remains in tl
city but a week, and perhaps sells but $10
worth of goods, as muoh as a dealer who n
mains in the city a year and sells $200,00
That the city, by charging an extol
tionate tax, compels travelling men t
set their wits to woik to avoid th
law. They manage to show their sample
on the sly, and, in many i na tances, they se
through commission houses which grow fat 0
a revenue the city ought to obtain. Travellin
men feel that the present object of the tax i
to make a I?J3DSQ ao expensive that it woo)
not pay them to enter the oity with the inter
fcion ot showing samples. That the oity baa n
right t) make a law forbidding them to oom
to Charleston, and they feel that the presen
law ia framed for this parp?se. If a licens
could be obtained for ten days at the cost o
ten or twenty.dollars, the hundreds of aeeat
who now avoid the law would comply with it
requirements and the city revenas woald b
The above are substantially the argument
used by those of the dealers who are opposa
to tba present system of taxing the drummers
Io our opinion the law gives travelling eales
men a great advantage ov:r resident sales
men. ' _

Each successive season has strengthened this

every effort to present to their old customers

their business. Prominent among the changes
that this policy has suggested, is the exten?

ment in regard to an altercation in a shco
house between a mao by the name of Ham

tbe person alluded to. and as I am a native ol

spect and esteem, [ask all of them to suspend
their judgment until the trial which I desire

manhood required; and will farther prove that

THE LATE\RAILROAI> ACCIDENT.
, TO THE IDITOR OF THE NEWS.
In your issue of tho 20th instant, containing
an account of the recent accident on tho8outb
Carolina Railroad, we observo that, in the tes?
timony taken before the coroner, Mr. James
Maguire, a train hand on the road, makes the
In about fifteen minutes after the accident
the fire commenced, and witness went towards
the passenger cars and found the passengers
attempting to break open the baggage oar, in
order to get their baggage. He asked them to
go with him to aid Mr. Hargrove, bat Done of
thom would do so.
Since oar retara co the city, we take the
earliest opportunity, through your valuable
journal, of denying this allegation, and of
slating that it is erroneous and unjust. The
statement of Mr. Maguire is a misrepresenta?
tion-we hope an unintentional one. Had we
refused assistance to the unfortunate Mr. Har?
grove, and preferred to save our personal ef?
fects in the baggago cai- rather than bis lifo,
we should have been lost to all feeling of hu?
Whoa wc got out upon the trestle after the
accident, we found that the train was on fire,
and the first thing that we did was to uncouple
and roll buck upon the track the passeuger car
containing the women and children.
When first informed of tho terrible position
of the unfortunate Mr. Hargrove, he was en?
tirely beyond help, and up to this time no
efforts bad been made eithor by as or others
to save any baggage.
Through the kindness of H. T. Peake, Esq.,
General Superintendent of tho road, we have
been permitted to make the following extracts
from the official report of Mr. W. H. Evans,
the conductor of tbe train, which we think not
only fully exculpates the passengers frc m any
imputation which might be drawn from Mr.
Maguire's testimony, but entirely disproves it:
We had got more than half way over the
trestle, when I felt a suddon concussion, which
almost threw me down. I immediately called
to the tram hands to put down brakes. They
nore at once applied, and we were brought to a
bait. I went immediately to my passenger
coach, and in as calm a manner as possible en
treatea my passengers to keep their seats, as
we were upon a trestle. I informed them that
an accident had occurred, the nature of wbiob
I was ignorant, but if they would keep quiet
I would ascertain and inform them.
I went oat, and hearing distinctly the cries
of some one who was wounded, I immediately
got down into the swamp, together with Mr.
Symmes. express messenger, and train hands
Maguire ana Seyles, and started to where the
We met, first, Fireman Barns, who wa? badly
scalded and bruised, and Mr. Symmes and my?
self took bim, while my two train hands
proceeded to assist Engineer Hargrove.
I then noticed the mass of raine which was
before, mo, and, to my horror, I found that in
addition to the accident which bad already
occurred, we had that terrible element of de?
struction, tire, to contend with, which was
raging fearfully and increasing rapidly, in coa
seq?ense of the oils and alcoholic spirits which
were running over the debris of my cars.
Some one called for an axe to extricate En?
gineer Hargrove, who, ? was informed, was
caught by tho reverse lever and quadrant in
such a position as to render it almost impossi?
ble to extricate him. The axe was thrown to
me (the only one I bad,) and I bad intended
?oing to assist tn bis extrication, when a tern?
ie explosion occurred.
This was a moment of awful mental contest.
What was my duty ? I pi:tared to my mind
the mangled foims of women and children,
blown to atoms by powder explosions. I has?
tened to get Fireman Barna on the trestle
and into my car, and then to get my two cars
with my passengers, which was a difficult
task, to a distance which I hoped would save
them from accident by explosion. I was then
informed that Mr; Hargrove was all in flames,
and no getting to him on account of the fire.
My next duty was to my passengers baggage,
and I directed my attention to saving it if pos?
sible, as my baggage car was on fire, and the
er plosions continuing.
Through the entire trial my passengers, one
and all, rendered me all the assistance in their
This report of Mr. Evans obviates, we think,
the necessity of any further statement of the
facts by us.
In conclusion, allow us to express surprise
that so respectable a journal as the Augusta
Chronicle and Sentinel should, in their issue
on the 22J inst., emit such a sentimental ar?
ticle as their caustic editorial, headed "fjh
paralleled Heartlessness." It might have been
morj generous bad they allowed the passen?
gers an opportunity of being hoard in their
defence, before the Chronicle and Sentinel
should be willing to convict them upon thc
testimony of ono single witness, unsupported
by either of tho other witnesses examined be?
fore the coroner, and, as the foregoing report
shows, contradicted by the conductor of the
We trust tbat this paper will do,us the jus?
tice, however, to publish this communication,
and not allow our friends in the Empire
State to think that we 8outh Carolinians
"were so intent upon saving their baggage,
that they refused to abandon their efforts to
save their dirty linen, although appealed to in
behalf of tho poor man who was in momentary
danger of meeting death ic its most hideous
and torturing form."
Papers which have copied accounts of this
accident will please inBert this communication.
