HA 1I.RO A D LEU ML A TIOS.
Every person who has obcrvcd the
signs of the times must have rcch that
a struggle between the great railroad
corporations and tho pcoplo is impend
ing in this country, and must know that
the conflict will soon bo commenced.
.When it docs, tho people, who have al
lowed their representatives to give lo
these monopolies all their power, will
be tu unreasonable as they hare been
foolishly liberal, and will break and
shatter the corporations iuto pieces If
the courts should etand in their way,
they will tear down the courts, aud,
wiping old precedent away, cstabli?h
new to suit thoir own idem of what is
right and just.
Every hcs.'iou of the Illinois legisla
ture witnesses the advent of railroad
reformers, who have had sagacity
cuough to no the coming storm, and
hope, by anticipatiiig,to reap their re
ward when events become ripe-. Hut,
unfortunately for thciii'elvcs and for
the people, they aro most all "weak ves
eels," and do not know how to do what
they with to do. The couscquuncu is,
crude dead-letter laws.
Already, iu the present sewion of the
legislature, the railroad agitation is be
ginning to bo dcvelojHid. Hon. Allen
C. Puller, of Helvidero, has introduced
iuto the .Suualu a bill which proxnvs to
make the maximum charge for tho
transportation' of a passenger three
cents per mile ou all railroads iu the
Statu, and punishing the third willful
violation of the law by a forleituro of
franchuo. Companies aro to bo jwr
niittcd to chargo ten ccuts extra when
fares are paid iu the cars, provided that
the fare is not made tnoro than flTe cents
per mile. This bill has been T&forred'
to tho Senate Committee on Railroad
In the House, Strong, of Livingston,
offered :i bill providing for the appoint
ment, by tho Governor, of three Rail
road Commissioner-, receiving 85,000
per year each, whue salaries and nil
other expenses chull be asrescd pro
rain on tho railroad-t, and w1iom duty
khall be, to have general Mipervision of
all railroads, horse, steam, etc., and
keep themselves informed as to their
condition, how far they accommodate
freight and jssengers, comply with
their charter, etc. They can require
roads to change rates of faro and freight,
to give inerenxed facilities, add to the
amount of rolling stock, change tho
manner of operating road, etc. Upon
nuy complaint made by county, town,
or city authorities, relative to tho man
agement of any road, tho eommiionei
must examine tho matter, and inu-t :i1mi
oxaminc upon petition of any twenty
voters, or report reasou why uot made.
Provision U made for a clerk, with a
salary of f 2,000. On the occurrence
of any accident, the railroad diall re
port the fact to the cmnmNsiouor, who
skill examine the same.
While tho Puller bill might work in
justice to many roads in the State, if
the rates of freight were hUo cut down
in like proportion, the Livingston bill
would create officers wlio would have
daily cause to pray to bo delivered from
temptation, and then would become the
servants of the companies they should
regulate in tho iutercst of tho people.

HOW HE LOST HIS SEAT.

Led bv curiosity, I made part of tho

Tlorman trngedlenno do Lady Macbeth.
In adding a lady friend to my party I
gave up my reserved scat, thinking I
could secure one at tte door with Clffl
culty. This proved Imposslblo. .very
seat wss socurod. and even standing room
disposed of. I, however, after seating my
party, wandered down and dropped into
n chair near a group of distinguished Con
gressional Shanghai!. In a few minutes a
John Hull of genteel exterior approached,
and after fumbling In Mi pocket to no
purpose, took a icat noar me. Ho wai not
permitted to rest long. In a few minutes a
part v at tho direction of tbo usher demanded
hit chair. Ho refused positively to vacate,
niscrtlng that bo had paid for his chair.
"Well, sir, you have tho number,
'''"'Why, no; you see that blasted bit of
paper is gone cawn't find it, you know
but reelect very well."
'Well, sir, this lady Is entitled to tho

the police." . ...
And so tho ushur left, nnd John Hull
sat with a lady standing before him.
Fowling sorry for tho ineltrmiou nun, i
said to him ho had better giro tho lady

It was a niiiL'nitlccnt slabt. to Sto our

Mlsslsslonl. then down to Jefferson bar
racks, where wo all went on shore to spend
a ploascnt hour, after which wengaln went
on boar J and steamed merrily up tho rivor.
I was standing noar tho cnptaln. Tho
commander of tho Templars enmo and
leaned wcarlly'on tho'capstaud. I turned
to Koubon Mi'lton and whlsporcdluhls car
theso words: "That man was born to
command." Ho had tho form of a Her-
coles, tho ho d of an Apollo, and tho oyo
ot an eagle, anu, as circumstances niter
ward demonstrated, tho heart of nlion.
Although net so very largo: ho appeared
larger than Iwrunllj was; ho wn full ud
athletic; nnd' still every proportion, wasw
ymmctry ana every movemunt a grace.
While ho was still lennuini: silently on
tho capsland, and while t was vol analys
ing his lino countenance, tho captain of
thu stuamor. with nalo Jlns and blnnclicd
checks, approached tho young Templar,
anu, in n low anu trembling voice, iaunt
"(JrcatUodl ir, wo are sinking. "NNe

'How long can you kcop her ntlcr.it ?"
carelessly imiulred tno young Tomplar.
'She roav go down in tivo minutes;

"Blow I warder, blowl'' said tho young
Templar, speaking to ms ensign, wuo
stood near him, nnd at tbo sumo tlmo
leaping upon tho capstan.
Every one was startled by a shrill blast
from thejwarder's trumpet. A hundred
Tomnlars1 swords loaned from their scab
bards at tbo blast. "Attention, Sir
knights," shouted tho young commander.
"Tho noxt ceremony in tho pro
gramme is for the Sir Knights, ladles and
gentlemen, on this boat, to mako a visit to
our friends on board tho Lady Gay. As

Forward, Sir Knights, to tho gangway.

In obedience to theso orders tho Knights
formed a doublollno to tho gangway,
facing around with swordi crossed abovo
the heads of tlioio forming tho procession.
In less than eight minutes tho wholo
precious cargo of human lib had passed
