Republican Mass Mooting.
The Republicans of Marietta City and
Washington County are requested to
attend a mass meeting at the Court
House, at 7 o'clock, Tuesday evening,
August 4th, for the purpose of organiz
ing a Republican Club. The desire for
such an organization has been frequent
ly expressed and the movement has the
unanimous sanction of both Republican
committees. It is desired to start the
Club oyer 100 strong that it may wield
a powerful influence in the campaign
now on and to that end every loyal
member of the party is urged to use his
personal influence to secure a large
attendance at this meeting. One of
the foremost Republican orators of the
county will deliver an address.
All members of other parties who are
unable to swallow the Chicago ticket
and platform of Repudiation, Populism
and Anarchy will be made welcome.
Chairman Charles J. Best, of the Re
publican County Central Committee,
has called a meeting of the new execu
tive committee for Wednesday, August
5th, at 10 o'clock a. m., for organization
and such other business as it may see
fit to transact.
Thk practice of throwing samples of
patent medicines and quack nostrums
on the lawns and verandas of residen
ces, where children may pick them up
and occasionally swallow them, should
be discontinued. The tresspass law
will stop the evil if there is no other
Tin: appointment of Mr. Murray lie-
Millen as Deputy Oil Inspector for this
district, which was made Friday by
Stato Inspector Kurtz, gives general
satisfaction. Mr. McMillen is a true
blue Republican of known energy and
influence and will fill the position cred
itably. There were other deserving
applicants, but only one, of course,
could be appointed.
Good Reasons from a Rood Demo
crat, for not Supportlne tho
Chicauo Platform or
Mr. Decatur Axtell, of Richmond,
"Va., Vice-President of the C. & 0. R. R.
"Although a life-long democrat I can--not
support the Chicago platform for
the following reasons :
First. I cannot support a platform,
which, if adopted, will make it neces
sary to reduce the wages of 8000 em
'ployes. Second. I cannot vote for nominees
who would compel railway companies
fo pay speculator premiums on gold.
""'Third. I cannot agree that -1,000,000
depositors in sayings banks shall have
their $1,800,000,000 savings reduced.
Fourth. I cannot agree that wage
earners who are paying into their
societies, shall lose any part of their
PISU'SlyR- fT the future,
Tilth. I cannot vote with people
who will disturb tho friendly relation
of creditor and debtor and force, the
former to drive his friend into distress.
Sixth. I cannot support ( platform
demanding measures that will enable
dobtors to keep aud enjoy, without re
imbursement in full, the property they
bare bought with other people's money.
Seventh. I cannot agree to the trans
formation of tho Democratic party into
a party of disorder and misrule.
.Eighth. I cannot vote for a party
that has the purpose to deprive scarred
end infirm veterans of any part of their
Uid'tb. Because the nominee for Pre
sident declared that he would not sup
port the Democratic party If it failed to
endorse tho free coinage of silver, at
tho ratio of 11) to 1. ,
Tenth. Because tho speeches mado
by tho nominee show him to be without
any proper conception of the great
matters he will bo called upon to con
trol. Eleventh. Because tho candidate for
Vice-President, being president of a
national bank, stultifies himself by
standing on a platform which denoun
ces such banks of issue.
But the great reason of all, is, that
Democracy is a part of my being and 1
cannot vote for its destruction."
More Monov Talks.
I. N. F. in tho Now York Tribune of
a day or two since, has to say us fol
lows, concerning some possible and
likely situations in our money condi
"I asked a prominent and well-In
formed banker yesterday whether the
gold shipments would continue from
tho United States, and tho gold reserve
again be depleted so heavily as to force
the Government to issue a new loan.
Ho replied that the American banks
would undoubtedly come to tho rescue
of the Government and make good the
losses of gold. They could protect tho
Government until November if they
wished to do so, and they could bo de
pended upon to stave off a new finan
cial crisis. He did not apprehend that
there would be a large shrinkage in the
gold reserve In the next three months.
If Bryan were elected, gold would leave
the country and nothing could stop it
Gold payments would be suspended, as
it would be Impossible to lloat juiiow
loan after the triumph of thWIrty,
which is committed to repudiation. The
situation would be greatly improved if
McKinley were elected, and a new issue
of bonds could then bo negotiated, if
necessary, in order to maintain gold
payments. American credit abroad had
been greatly damaged, however, by
the recent proceedings of the Demo
cratic and Populist conventions, and
the faith of Europeans in the perpe
tuity of Republican institutions had
been seriously impaired. Tho assur
ance which was anxiously awaited in
Europe was an explicit declaration by
the new Administration, supported by
Congress, that the Nation meant to
pay its debts in gold and not repudiate
them. Any issue of gold bonds would
be salable In Europe after McKinley's
election, and it would sullice to keep
up the Treasury gold reserve ; but what
was Indispensable was the conversion
of the Treasury deficit into a surplus,
coupled with a thorough scheme of
currency reform which should include
the cancellation of greenbacks when
This opinion is generally held in
Lombard Street, and is reflected by all
financial journals. The effect of Bry
an's nomination in causing social un
rest and political demoralization has
been shown by the heavy fall in Ameri
can railway securities. Ifthe lists of
stocks of a fortnight ago and today
be compared, the decline will be found
to run from 14 to 20 per cent. McKin
ley's nomination was followed by a
rise in all classes of American securi
ties, but this movement was checked
by shrewd speculators in New York,
who sold heavily in anticipation of tho
adoption of a silver platform by the
Democracy and the consequent depres
sion of the market Any permanent
recovery in prices cannot be looked for
while the political situation is clouded
with uncertainty. There are no buyers
abroad for anything American ; inves
tors are waiting to find out whether
Americans have dropped the Eighth
Commandment from tho Decalogue.

Ati.a.N'iiuCiiv, N. J., July 31.. A ter
rible railroad cntastropti'o took place
on the Meadows, about1" two miles out
of this city, sl'ioi tly after 0:!)d o'clock
Thursday evening, resulting in the,
death of -12 pudpli, so far uV 'now can'
be, learned, and the wounding 'of b0
others. A train lif t here consisting'ofj
seven cars,, over the West Jersey rail-,
road bearing u special cxeursioh of
Red Men and their friends, of Bridge
ton, N. J., and Salem, and had 'reached
the cross-ails' of tho Heading railroad
when it was struck by the 5:40
down c.pt;ss from Philadelphia,
demolishing two cars, and telescoping
the tuo following. The engine of the
Reading tr.iiu became a total wreck,
killing the engineer and fatally injur
ing the fireman, und tho car behind
also was tin on n from the truck and
many of its occupants' killed or ' in
jured. Tho responsibility of tho collision
has not yet bucn placed, but William
Thurlow, tho operator at the block
tower .situated at the dossing, has
been placed under arrest by drder of
l Leaving this city the tracks of the
West Jersey road run parallel to those
of the Camden & Atlantic until after
they cross the drawbridge, when they
switch off to the south, crossing the
Reading road at an obtuse angle.
John Gieiner, tho engineer of the
West Jersey train, saw the Reading
train approaching the crossing at u
swift speed, but ns tho signals were
open for him to proceed on his wny ho
continued. His engine had barely
cleared the track of the Reading when
the locomotive of the latter train which
loft Philadelphia at UM0 ,truck
the (tfr.st c.ir full in the center,
thowing it far oft" tho track into a near
by ditch, and completely submerging
it The socond car of the West Jersey
train was also carried into tho ditch,
tho third and fourth cars being tele
scopod. Tho engine of tho Reading
train was thrown to the other side of
the track, carrying with it tho first
coach. A few minntes after the colli
sion, to add to the horror of the situa
tion, tho boiler of the Reading locomo
tive exploded, scalding several to death
and casting its boiling spray over many
of the injured passengers.
is soon as the news reached this
city it spread widecast and thousands
of people flocked to the bccnc. The
road leading to the place of the colli
sion was a constant procession of
hacks, busses and bicycles and all
kinds of vehicles, while thousands of
pedestrians hurried along the path to
render what assistance they could or
to satisfy their curiosity.
Darkness fell quickly and the work
of rescuing the injured and the. dead
bodies was carried out under the lurid
glare of huge bonfires. It was a grue
some sight presented to onlookers as
the mangled and burnt forms of tho
dead wero carried from the wreckage
which bound them and laid side by
side on tho gravel bank near thc.tiack
with no other pall than the few odd
newspapers gathered from tho passen
gers. The wounded were quickly
gathered together and carried by train
and wagon to tho Atlantic City hos
pital, where six of them died shortly
after their arrival.
The old Excursion house at thfci foot
of Mississippi avenue was converted
into a morgue and thither the dead
wero taken. At a late hour Thursdav
evening there were 29 bodies laid out
there, none of whom are as yet identi
fied. This city, is terribly excited over
the occidont Tho streets in the vicin
ity of the Excursion house and the city
hospital, as well as tho road leading to
the scene of the acipntj being packed
with people anxious to learn tilS.latcst.
The Bridgeton and Salem excursionists

to "this city and sent homo on a special
train several hours later " the even

James Hoyt, secretary of tho depart-'

upon learning the extent q tig, catas

phia emergency 'corys, 150 of whom re
sponded, and hnrried to this city on a
special train, which left Philadelphia
at 10M5 p. m. These surgeons mater
ially aided tho volunteer corps of this
city, who embraced almost every phy
sician at present within its confines.
Many of tho. injured wero taken to
hotels as the city hospital soon became
overcrowded, About 30 of the wound
ed had their injuries dressed and wero
ajjle to proceed on their way. It is ex
pected that fully a dozen of those noiv
lying ln io hospital will not survive
their injuries. -

Friday morning place the number of
killed in Thursday night's railroad ac
cident at 43, including the engineer
and fireman of the Reading train.
There arc no new developments re
garding the responsibility for the ter
rible loss of life, but the ac
cident seems to have resulted
from the failure of Engineer Farr, of
the Rending train, to obey tho signals
at the block station which. It is gener
ally agreed, weie set against his train
and required a full stop. Engineer
Farr and his fireman wero both lolled.
Engineer Kriner, of the West Jersey,
says that as he nearcd the crossing ho
saw the Reading train approaching
fiom the opposite direction. A Camden
and Atlantic train, was also corning
toward this city, and it seemed to him
that both trains were racing.
The signals at the block house were
open for him to go on, and, knowing
that if such be the case, that the block
must be against the Reading train, he
oxpectod the latter to stop. Before he
rcalizrd it he saw a collision was inev
itable, and he was nbout to jump at
the point where the' Reading engine
now lies, but he took a desperate
chance uiid stuck to his post
