WE ARE ALL HAPPY.
KANSAS Citt, Mo., March 19. "Well,
wo are all happy this morning," said Cap
tain Speer of the Santa Fe. "Everybody
is in good shape, and we are getting every
thing under way as rapidly as possible."
"What is there in the report that a
compromise was effected with the engin
eers, in which the Santa Fe agrees not to
handle Burlington business?"
"There is nothing in it. There was no
compromise whatever. The facts are
simply that the men -were ordered back by
Mr. Conroe. If any report was made not
to handle Burlington freight it was not
answered. I have received no orders in
regard to the matter. When the strike was
declared I received orders not to receive any
freight during its continuance and that
order has not been recinded. Our yards
nre not blocked with freignt, and until we
get this moved we will not be in shape to
receive any more. We got out five trains
this morning, and our passenger trains
went out on time with their regular men
aboard. Two passenger trains arrived on
time. In fact, our business is going on as
regularly as it ever did, and it is only a
question of how soon we can relieve our
yards of the accumulated freight until we
will be running the same as before the

Chicago to settle this thing. lie arrived
at 9:15 in the morning, and at 4:45 he had
everything straightened out and started
back to Chicago with Mr. Conroe. I think
the circular issued by the company had
great effect. In that circular our position
was thoroughly defined, and there can be
no doubt that the terms of that circular
were recepted by the men or they would
not have gone back immediately after its
promulgation. The engineers do not have
much to say, but those of the Santa Fe
system have a pleased appearance. The
general grievance committee is locked up
in its rooms, and jvill admit no visitors.
Chairman Carroll refuses to talk and Mur

Kansas City, March 10. All passenger
trains on the Santa Fe will go out on time
this morning. At the freight yards all is
activity and the switch enginesaro darting
around making up trains as rapidly as
possible and every effort is being made to
relieve the freight blockade. No. 3 pas
senger train, which leaves at 10:10, stands
on the track with the regular engineer in
the cab. No. 71, which leaves at 10:30 on
the Southern Kansas, will go out on time,
as will No. 5 at 11:15.
A steady rain has been falling all morn
ing and the depot is deserted by all except
those there on Business.
WILL ACCEPT FREIGHT TOMORROW.
Kansas City, Mo., March 19. That the
Santa Fc system is already in its normal
condition is amply evidenced by the an
nouncement that freight of all kinds will
be accepted tomorrow. The men in the
yards have been very busy all
day in clearing up the ac
cumulated freight business. All trains are
sent out properly and everything is work
Stormy weather prevails in tho sur

LARRABEE AND TERKIXS.
The "Qn President and Iowa's Governor
ilave a Little Correspondence.
Dks Moines, Iowa, March 19. The fol
lowing correspondence between Governor
Larrabeo and President Perkins, of the
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad,
was made public tonight. The first letter
from the governor was written ten days
ago, and is as follows :
Des Moines, March 10, 1SSS.
Mr. C E. rerlclns, President C. U. Jt Q CUicaco.
DKAB Sin: Frequent complaints have,
of late, been made to me. concerning the
interruption to freight and passenger trans
portation caused by the strike 6t the en
gineers and firemen in your road, as well
as. the danger arising from the employ
ment of Incompetent substitutes for such
employees. The incouvenience and lis
appointment which the present state of
affairs causes to travelling public and the
loss which commerce in divers ways sus
tains are such as that further delay in the
adjustment of the difference existing be
tween the management of the Chicago.
Burlington & Quincy road and
its striking employees would be
a manifest injustice to the oeople
of our state. In the territory controlled
by your road traffic is deranged and travel
inconvenienced to such an exteut as to de
mand a speedy solution of the difficulties.
I therefore appeal to you ra behalf of the
eople of Iowa to make every effort possi
bletocometo an understanding with the
strikers. It appears to me that even
self-interest should dictate such a
course to you and especiallv as your com
pany can be held responsible for damage
caused by failure to furnisti reasonable
facilities for the transaction of business ou.
rour road. Allow me to suggest that un
less you soon succeed in some way to se
cure a settlement of the controversy you
suumib iub case to Jtroicrauon.
Mr. Perkins in reply is as follow:
Burlington, ia., March 14, 1SSS.
Hon. "Win. I.arrabee. Governor of Iowa, Des Moines
"Mr. Dear Sir I have to acknowledge
the receipt of your communication of
March 10, sent to me at Chicago. I regret
that our course should give any
cause of complaint and I assure
you that no amount of labor and
expense has been spared by us to correct
as rapidly as possible any shortcomings
due to the sudden action of our engineers
and firemen two weeks ago. If communi
ties or individuals have been damaged
thereby we stand ready to make payment
in full where we are liable, and I shall
esteem it a favor if you will kindly trans
mit to me a statement of all complaints
which have been or may hereafter be
brought to your attention, in order that
we may endeavor to render satisfaction in
each case. It is not necessary for me to
say that when men so essential to the
operation of a railroad as locomotive engi
neers all, or nearly all, leave the service on
less than twenty-four hours' notice their
places cannot be filled at once. We have
succeeded, however, in so far filling them
that Ave now have in Iowa about 07 per
cent of the number of employes prior to
February 27, to which wo are daily making
additions. While 75 or 80 per cent will
probably be quite sufficient lor the present
demands of busines. Owingtolarge number
of men out of employment, to the loyalty
see all courage and hard work of the men
who remained with us in all branches of
our organization to the positive stand
taken by the newspapers and to the
patience and good nature of the
public, from whom we have received
many marks of encouragement we have re
covered more rapidly than at the begin
ning we though possible. Your letter
suggests the question of our employing
the men who.e voluntary action in leaving
us was the cause of whatever inconvenience
the public has suffered. This was a serious
and important matter and one to
which we gave the most careful considera
tion. Much could be said on both sides
but our conclusion up to this time has been
that we would not close the door to the re
turn of so many of them as we may have
work for. Very few, however, have taken
advantage of this opportunity and our new
men, who are competent, and of good
character, will, of course, be retained if
they like to stay in the service. Very res
pectfully your obedient servant,
C. E. Perkins, President.

Dear Sir: 1 am in receipt of your letter
of the 14th inst., and I am glad to hear
that the present situation affords hope
that the regularity in operation of
your lines will soon be re
established. In compliance with your
request 1 shall take pleasure ,in forward

in future be brought to my attention.
While the inconvenience caused to the
public by the present strike has been the
subject of much complaint, my interced

SHOT HIS COMPANION.
Windpor, Mo., March 19. Two young
men, named Charles Woolery and Georgo
Tivis, living iu this vicinity, decided to
run away from home and go to Colorado a
few days ago. The night before they in
tended to start they slept in a haystack.
While Woolery was asleep his companion
struck him on the head with a hatchet,
inflicting a slight scalp wound, and then
shot him, the ball making a painful but
not dangerous injury in tho face. Tivis
evidently intended to make away with
Woolery's team, which the latter had
brought with him. Tivis was arrested.

she could against him.
RUN OVER BY FIVE TRAINS.
New York, March 19. Alfred Stone, a
sign painter, who has been living in the
Bridge hotel, 129th street and Third ave
nue, was drinking in a saloon opposite the
High Bridge station of the New York City
& Northern railroad, at about 10 o'clock
Saturday night. The bartender, noticing
that he was the worse for liquor, warned
him not to go up the track when he left
for Morris dock. Five trains had pitted
over Stone's body when it was found at 3
o'ciock this morning.
Mr. Lincoln was quite apt to prepare him
self in advanco for these little events, and
whon he did ho generally followed his manu
script carefully. Mr. Hitt was present when I
tuo representatives ot mo muiouai conven
tion, headed by Georgo Ashmun, called on
Mr. Lincoln to inform him of his nomination.
Mr. Lincoln did not quite like to see a man
reporting him, especially when ho was only
making a speech of a few minutes, and when,
after a littlo general talk, Mr. Ashmun
stopped forward and began to address Mr.
Lincoln, Mr. Hitt got behind one of the spec
tators, and proceeded to take Mr. Lincoln's
response verbatim. After the affair was over
Mr. Lincoln camo up to Mr. Hitt and asked:
"Did you hear all that I said." "Every
word," was the response. "Well," said Mr.
Lincoln, "I was afraid you would not be able
to hear, so I wrote what I was going to say
beforehand,'' and ho handed Mr. Hitt the
speech in writing. Mr. Hitt. and Henry J.
Raymond compared the written speech and
the stenograpic report, and there was not the
variation of a word. "F. P. P." in Chicago

THE EVANGELIST. J. H. MILIiER.
Mr. Miller has been preaching at the
Emporia Avenue Baptist church for two
weeks past, and his powerful and practical
sermons, together with the genial good
fellowship of the man, himself, have won
for him the esteem and commendation of
all who heard him. Some results have ac
crued from his labors and that more has
not been accomplished is not due to any
lack on the part of the evangelist. There
are places and times when the best preach
ing seems powerless. Several were bap
tized Sunday night and it is expected that
others will be tonight.
Mr. Miller will preach tonight, and
whether the meetings will continue longer
will depend upon the interest manifested.
Let there be a large attendance. You will
be well repaid for going.

You 3nter this mosque through a bronzo

profane feet with protecting babooches; and
then you are freo to examino end admire.
The flr&t featuro that strikes you is four enor
mous pillars, which might bo compared to
four fluted towers, and which support the
weight of the principal cupola. The capitals
of these pillars are carved into tho form of a
mass of stalactites, a stylo of ornament
which may bo observed in many fine Persian
monuments; and halfway up they are encir
cled by a band covered with inscriptions in
Turkish characters. The strength and sim
plicity of these four pillars, which at onco
explain to the eye tho constructive sj'stem of
tho building, give a striking impression of
robust majesty and imperishable stability.
Sourates, or verses from tho Koran, form
bands of running ornament around tho
great cupola and tho minor domes and tho
From tho roof aro suspended to within
eight or ten feet of tho ground innumerable
lusters, composed of glass cups full of tal

mosques. The mihrab, which designates tho
direction of Mecca tho niche where rests
tho sacred book, tho Koran, tho "noble book

is inlaid with lapis lazuli, ngato and jasper.
Then thero is the usual member, surmounted
by a conical sound board; the mastaches, or
platforms supported by colonettes, where tho
muezzins and other clergy sit. As in all tho
mosques, the side aisles aro incumbered with
trunks and bales of merchandise, deposited
by pious Mussulmans under divine safe
guard; and finally, the floor is covered with
fine matting in summer and carpets in win
ter. While I was lost in wonderment at tho
splendor of this mosque several Moslems
camo in to pray, with the usual prostrations
and beard stroking and yawning. Two or
three women also camo to pray, clad in
feridjis of brilliantly striped silks rose and
white, azure and white, yellow and red and
they, too, kneeled on the matting and bowed
and touched tho ground with rhrir brows;
and their little baby girls, with their fine
eyes and white veils wrapped round their
heads, stood patient and motionless beside
them, not being yet old enough to pray, or
perhaps not strong enough on their legs to
prostrate themselves without irremediably
losing their balances. Atlantic Monthly.

Sunday evening a woman going by the
name of Mollie Seymour, but whose real
name is it appears Mary Moore, was ar
rested for taking a quantity of table linen
from Hotel Gandolfo. She had been em
ployed for a short time as housekeeper at
this hotel, and had several times made the
remark that she might at any moment be
called west to Pueblo. Sunday afternoon
she was paid her wages and left, intending
to send for her trunk. As soon as she had
gone, Mrs. G who had missed some table
linen, made in the presence of her board
