Boston, Aug. 12. The all-ab-jirblnj:
topic of conversation in town is tht bnivi
act of Isaac Williiuna in averting a collision
between tw6 passenger trains at Uk
Eastern Railroad station, in Beverly. Tht
train to Portland came into Beverly station
a few niiuuteo late, and signals wen-set
warning the Gloucester express, then
due, but the engineer of the express (lit.

was his. When he did see them he u;
once applied the air-brakes nd reveie
his engine, but the suddenncso of the act
broke the connections of the airbrake
and they would not hold the
train. Tho engine, trith wheels reversed,
was rushing onward, pushed by the
train. Danger signals were shown to man
the brakes, but nothing oould stop the train
under such headway. Among those who
saw tho incoming train was Ike Smith, as
ho is familiarly called by his friend, and
lie sprang to tho switch to turn the train ofl
its course, but to his horror found that the
Portland train had run on to the switch.
Calling to tho engineer to back off, he
btood by while merrwerc calling to him to
get away or he would be killed. Well
knowing it was his life or a hundred other
and perhaps both, he stood lirm, and tin.
instant the Portland engine was off the
switch he gave it a turn just as the incoming
engine struck it, the engines nasing
within a few inches of each other, ami
away went the on to a side track.

a vacation. The express had on board a
large number of the wealthy shore residents

"Washington, Aug. 12. The Quartermaster
Geneal having obtained authority
from the Secretary of War, has ordered
the purchase of 1,000 additional drab
campaign hats in order that they may receive
a further and more extensive trial
bv troops in Arizona and the Department
of The reports received upon
the merits of the l,()0u hats purchased recently
and issued are very satisfactory.
General Ilolabird has also adopted a much
handsomer pattern for uniform coat and
buttons. The new vest buttons will
not be used exclusively on the uniform
coats to be manufactured until the stock of
old buttons become exhausted. Action i
now being taken by the Quartermaster
General winch, if it should meet with tho
approval of higher authority, will eml

What In Kxpoefcd From tin
P'Waphinoton, D. ('., Aug. 12. Some
racy star-route revelations as well us a romantic
family history, are promised in
connection with a suit entered by Col. A.
E. Boone Flora Cabell, for $1,700,
monev lent August 1 1, 18S0. Boone is the
well-known mail contractor, and Cant.
Cabell, husband of the defendant, is under
indictmont for wh.lt is known ns the straw
bond cases. The route on which tho alleged
worthless londs were given belonged
to Boone, but the sureties were furnished
on the contract for a consideration by the
Cabells. The latter were also1 interested
with Boone in several star-routes, in
which he claims to have been defrauded
out of some 10,000 by their transfer to
Mrs. Cabell. No allegation is made in
the declaration that the money was had
fpr the lady's necessary support, as is required
in suing a married man. This is
explained by tho charge made by Boone
that at the time of the loan Captain and
Mrs. Oabcll were not married, one or both
having other partners still alive, Cabell
was a Mississippi steamboat oaptain and
had a wife living within two years, when
her death enabled him to marry his present
wife. Col. Boone claims to be ablo to convict
the Cabells in tho straw bond cases if
they ever come to trial, and says that his
own connection with them has been proven
to the prosecuting oliicers to havo been entirely

residents of the Territory, who seem inclined
to follow his lead ratheY than
P.iine's. His idea is to take as many as
desire to go into the Oklahoma lauds from
within the Territory itself. lie has purchased
wagons and other for
carrying out his plan. There is considerable
discontent among the negroes because
tlioy have no vote and the land they live
upon belongs to the Indiuns. The treaty
stipulates that in case the Indians adopt
the negroes into full fellowship then
lands shall be surveyed and the negroes
given forty acres of land each after the
Choetaws, Chickasaws and other Indians
bliull have mado their selections, which
will be giving the negroes third choice.
Therefore they profer to go to Oklahoma,
where they can have first choice. On the
whole, a great deal of dissatisfaction exist
which will probably result in tits
United States Government taking action
on thoir belief.
