TAIN ICVD IS WASHINGTON.
Washinoton, August It was an
nounced siime tune ago that the president
had promised to make a lils-ral subscrip
tion to the campaign fund of the Republi
can congressional committee, and there has
been much curiosity as to whether he would
fulfill his promise, ami if so how much he
would give. Memlwrs of the committee
and clerks at headquarters are very reticent,
and upiN-ar to Ik; entirely ignorant in regard
to the matter. Representative Foster is
here as acting secretin of the committee in
the aliseuee of Gorhaui, who has gone to
the mountain fur a few we -ks' rest. Fos
ter is one of the warni'-tt and most 'nti
mate friends of President Hayes in con
gress, and was the member of the
committee on finance who called upon him
for a subscription to the campnii'n fund. In
an interview this morninif Foster said:
'When Senator Dnrsey, Mr. Hubbell and
myself called upnn the president two or
three months ago he said he w as not only
willing I tt t anxious to contribute, and
thought lhat most of the olliee-holder.
t)imtiiiout the couni.y felt the same way.
I don't suppose he haa made a regular sub
scription, 1 mt he Ins given or will give us
much as any of his predecessors.' Mr.
Foster explained that the president had not
and probably would not w.'ite his name
down in a subvription book, but Irs be
lieved he intended to contribute to the suc
cess of the party, and probably would asist
Congressman McKinley and other of his
friends in Ohio who have close dis. Jets
and hard tights before them. Foster also
said that doth Secretary Schurz and
I'o-tmaster-Gen. Key had subscribed, with
other members of the cab'-iet
Speaking of Missouri politics Foster said
that '.he committee had ad!ecs which led
him to believe that there would bo at least
three Ciingressm'-n, and probably rive, from
that state who would not vote for a Demo
cratic organization of the next house. Ho
would not specify as to whether they would
be R publicans. Nationals or what, or from
which districts. He indicated that the Re
publicans were at work wherever there was
a chance of being successful to elect an in
dependent, who ;n return for Republican
vim s would promise the one th'ngof voting
against a Democratic or gan'.ation of the
Washinoton. Aug 8. 1S78. '"Civil Ser
vice Reform" says Governor Hendricks, in
his speech opening the Indiana campaign, is
a sham and a lie." It has been a sham and
"a lie evcrj- day since Mr. llaycs, ou the 4tli
of March, 1877, renewed his pledge to make
it a reality. Governor Hendricks does not
mention allot' the contradictions tit be fotnd
between the promises and the performances
of the administration, but in this reference
to one of them he has described them all.
Rut the promises and professions ure slill
heard. Junketing in Ohio or Rhode Island;
Mr. Hayes wordily condemns his predeces
sor quitting the capital. Signing an ap
pointment for the. last of the Louisiana ras
cals, he writes n letter in favor of putting
pure men in olhYe. Cond 'inning tlet inter
ference of office-holder in political
atl'airs, he, holding the highest otllee i i the
country, promises a liberal contribution to a
campaign fund something no other imin
in thiitotlice ever did. That he afterwards
forgot to pay over the money, wh -n his
promise had caused thousands of subordi
nates to subscribe and pay, is a further
curious illustration of tho various way of
the man. '"Civil Service Reform" as carried
out by Hayes "is a sham and a lie."
It Is certain that Dennis Kearney, though
inn manner vouched for by General Rutler,
ha failed to make the impression in Rost tu
which hu made in San Francisco. Tlio
part of hi speech which received most
applause In Roston were palpable plagiar
isms, aud tho rougher portion, which seem
to have been enjoyed in California, wore
tomewhat coldly received in Fanleul Hall.
Mr. Mantoa Marble proves very couclu-
sively in hi lato ncw-Hpiiper article, that
Governor Tilden believed thoroughly In the
Democratic doctrine, that tho Uo home of
congrena U coiuuiitti'd by the constitution
the power to count the electoral vote. Thia,
however, is equally tho belief of Senator
Tliunnun, Rnyitrd and Ransom of tho
electoral commission, and of Senator Conk
ling and other Republican senator who
aided in the ji.'tKsnge of the eluctoeal coin
luissioii bill. So Mr. Tilden is entitled
to no npcrial credit on that ground. Mr.
Marble further attempt to show that Gov
ernor Tilden was earnestly npM)Nud
to tho electoral commission. lie mieceeds
in showing that the Governor opposed
it for a time as a matter of expedien
cy, hip! opposed some details of the original
bill. The eminent senators mentioned, anil
many others, were ot one opinion, and Gov
ernor Tilden was of another. They are nil
entitled to honor for the parts they took, and
wc may hope that all of them, having ac
cepted the commission as a necessity only,
will help to put uffuirs in such shape that
another one will not be. created.
Capt. James U. Eads, of the Mississippi
jetties, is in this city for a few days. The
magnificent success he has had in improv
ing the navigation of our great river a suc
cess even more important to those w ho come
after than to us has made him a welcome
visitor wherever he goes. To make tl.e en
trance to the Mississippi river as sate and
easy as that to New York harbor is a work
that will never be forgotten.
TERRORS OF THE WRECK.
HIIOCKINO DETAILS GIVEN IIY AN EYE WIT
NESS OK THE RAILROAD COLLISION AT
From the Cincinnati Commercial.
A Commercial reporter boarded at Love
bind the train due here at 8 p. m. on the
Little Miama,which was delayed until 10:43,
and gained some particulars from persons
who had been in the accident.
One of the passengers, Mr. S. F. Cashing,
clerk in the assessor's office, Huston,
states that he was sitting near the rear end
of the fifth coach, and no: feeling sleepy
had lighted a cigar and was smoking. Tin
car .was comfortably tilled, A majority of
the people were sitting pretty well forward.
The first intimation he had of the accident
was healing the crush and seeing all lights
go out, and feeling himself thrown ucmss
the aisle under one of the "ats. His
first thought was that the lum was going
dow a through ft bridge, and he prepared
himself for the second shock by grasping
hold of the foot-rests. This impression
left him as he felt the car rising almost up
right, an act that brought all the detached
seats and broken timbers as well as the
wounded and dead passengers down with
great force over the place where hts w as
iting. He then crawled from the wp'ck
and found everything in darkness. On all
sides he could hear the cries of the wound
ed, some appending for water and others to
be taken from the ruins. As soon as
matches could lc procured a bonfire was
started, supplied with broken pieces of the
cars, and the unhurt went to work fm the
relief of the sutl'erers. Three boilies
were killed in the smoker occupied by him,
one of whom was a woman. Her son. a lad
of nine years, bad all the toes cut from olf
his left foot. The grief of the lilt e fellow
on leaning the death of his mother was
heart-rendering. Retook the boy to one
of the Pulinan cars, both of which had re
mained on the back, but was refaseil - ail
luittaiice, as were all the wounded. He de
nounces in unmeasured teims the conduct
of these officials, nnd says they persisted in
this course until the arrival of the road
superintendent on the wrecking tra'n, who
compelled thelll to open their doors.
The physicians commenced arriving at
about ball-past 4 o'clock, and as quickly as
possible the injured received the best inten
tion that coiihi be given under the circum
stances. The car ahead, tilled with emi
grants bound for the West, Went over the
bank, a distance of twentv feet. In tics
j conveyance the greater number were killed.
V hen our Inloi inant nppli -it to the tele
graph operator lit Mingo to forward a
message to his employers in Roston, stating
that ho was unhurt by the accident, lie was
told that it could not'lu sent. Al'ier some
argument he indue d the young man to
send it. When the train from Meubeiiville
Arrived the wounded and dead were placed
