Cot l u Hi s, l)., lie-. 4. A special to The

tion baas Usmi produced amoug the trainmen
on ths New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio
railway by the arrest of John McPherson,
John Kiuviuger, and Charles E. Downs, on
the charge of robbing freight cars in the
the trains ou which they were employed,
and tbe iuin of warrants for many others.
The triul of Charles Downs commenced
Saturday morning befor Mayor Oayley.
Downs wss a brakeman ou a h-al freight
and made a confesHiou.
The vheane aa Exeriiteil.
He said the lir-t ho kuew of the thieriug
was on April 10 last year. One day at Cale
donia a quantity o( clothing, etc., was ab
stracted trom a car, ami iiuui another occa
"ion, at Miirtel, a car was oeued and three
ladies' woi k-boxes were tukeii and presented
to the wives and girls of tbe men implicated.
Downs explained the method of abstraction
as follows: In nearly every way-car some
boxes of through freight were found, and
those were the boxes tampered with. Goods
were always taken from freight consigned to
points beyond the New York, Pennsylvania,
and Ohio. It is claimed that a regular com
mission business was done at Dayton by tbe
suspected men Clothing, dress goods, boots
ami sboca, whisky, and nearly every thing
suffered. A large niimlier of tbe officials of

world's fair," he said.
Roswell P. Flower, of New Y'ork, re
marked: "If Chicago has many such men
as you she deserves tbe fair."
The supple Lawler, though he had lost his
chance to draw, won another good seat for
himself by a little trick. He sat down unob

other congressmen seeing it occupied did not
take it. Then, when it came to Gen. Hpin

list, he selected the seat held by lawler.
