A Meeond Letter MnNfalnlna: the Ar.
ensatlona of the First Concerning
the Present Republican Candidate
tor Mtate Neniior.
Senkca. S. D.. Oct 8, 1890. EJitor
Arous: I mail simultaneously with this
a reply to tbe writer who signs himself "A
Democrat" in tbe Union, but for fear that
it will not greet tbe voters of your county
through the columns of the Union, I mail
this duplicate to von:
Editor Hock Island I nion :
I am in receipt of a copy of the Union
containing a reply to my letter of recent
date concerning the action of Mr. Craw
ford last winter, and his candidacy for
tbe state aenatirsbip from your district.
In reply to this article I would like to
refer to the fact that the letter was pub
lished over my own signature, and if
there waB anything untrue in it Mr Craw
ford had the full recorse of the law to re
fute tbe charges, and it is not necessary for
bim to incite any honest democrat to "res
billion" in order to pi ice my letter io a
fle light. In fact, tbe failure of the
writer to sign bis own nnruet ) the article
looks rather as though Mr. Crawford was
its author, were it not tor the fact that be
is incapable of writing an article of such
length. However that may be, Mr. Craw
ford doubtless bad a strong hand in its
dictation. Now to facts: "Your "Dem
ocrat" states that Mr. Crawford "contrib
uted ten dollars to my fund." but that my
"decisive impertinence" induced Newton
to withdraw tbe tender "aod he brought
the money back to his father. " There is not
one wordof truth inthe whole statement,
and this I can prove by the sworn state
ment of at least one witness. While still
at Mr. Crawford's residence, on the night
of the interview when he named his price
on the oa's. I demurred thereto, and in
quired if he knew of anyone who had
oats to sell: that I thought I ought to get
them for less than that. He named a
genthnmn in his neighborhood whose
name I cannrt now recall where he
thought I could procure tbem, but this I
could not do, and tinaUy induced R E.
Little, who lives one mile east of Taylor
Ridge, to supply tbem, the price agreed
upon being eighteen cents per bushel, or
two cents above market price, which I
paid Mr. Little as an inducement to sell
his oats. Next morning I went to Tay
lor KidL'e to fiuisb loading the car and
receive the oits from Mr. Little. When
I arrived in town I met Mr. Crawford's
son, who asked me if I wanted the oats
from bis elevator. I replied that I bad
secured them from Mr. Lttle, and that he
would soon be in with a load. He asked
me what I paid, aod I replied eighteen
cents. To which be replied: "Well, fa
ther told me to knock down on the
weights a little, and I would baye knock
ed down enough so that it wouHlhave
been about the same.'' I asked bim why
his fatner did not mention this tbe even
ing before, instead of refusing to give
either money or grain, and he replied
that be did not know, but those were bis
father's orders. Just then a contribution
came in, and I weut to attend
it, and did net have a chance to
speak further to him. This was
all the conversation there was b tween us,
and I am sure that at no time was there any
offer of money us the gentleman states in
your paper. Whether there way anything
in tbe aboye language which might be
deemed "impertinence," I leave for your
readers to judge, and I bought the oats,
and did not patronize a monopolist,
either, but gave an honest man the sale,
who had already contributed liberally to
my car, and made bim at the same time
two cents more per bushel than he could
have received from Mr. Crawford. In
mv letter I made no ullusion to tbe soldier
record of Mr. Crawfoid, but to his record
of more recent date, and the record which
interests the farmers of Illinois today.
While I honor the old soldiers I do not
deem that alone sufficient for placing them
at tbe bead of our state affairs, unless
they also have tbe necessary qualifications
for a statesman. Would a man who will
speculate upon the distress of the needy
be a proper person to place in the state
senate to enact laws for your government
or would it be better to .Uce that respon
sibility upon some one not branded as a
robber, whether be is an old soldier or
not? 1 have not spoken in favor of any
man but against the candidacy of such a
man as your republican nominee for sen
ator, and I shall be proud, if, by these
articles I aid the honorable farmers and
citizens of Rock Island county to relegate
to the shades of political oblivion tbc
bard hearted monopolist whose ire I have
so excited. I cannot help but feel in
dignanl that a man who had attempted
such a bold faced robbery, both of my
neighbors in South Dakota and of my old
friends in Illinois should aspire to one of
the highest honors within the gift of the
people. Yours truly.

THE WRECKING TRAIN.
Something; About the Outfit Carried In
Its Can and Always tn Readiness.
Accidents will happen occasionally on tbe
best managed railroads, and sometimes
bad wrecks happen, the cause of which fre
quently Is a mystery, and the tracks are
blocked for hours. For every minute the
track remains blocked money and time are
lost, and passenger and freight traffls is
interrupted. So the railroads are alw ays
prepared, and within thirty minutes a ter
a wreck has happened a wrecking train is
on the way wit h a trained crew of it en,
and if the telegram announcing the wr?ck
says that passengers or employes are in
jured the wrecking train comes along w itb
Its physicians, bandages and cots. A
wrecking outfit is about the homeliest
thing owned by a railroad company, but
when they are needed they are needed
The wrecking cars are kept at the end of
a division, and are directly under the con
trol of the superintendent of that division.
The wrecking train is composed of three
cars and a powerful locomotive, and all the
cars are fitted with air brakes. The fii-st
car Is what is known as the truck car. The
body of the car is very low, and upon it
are carried two extra pairs of trucks, rai s,
cross ties and spikes, for sometimes t iu
track is torn up in a wreck.
The second car ia the wrecking enr. Ji
is built of tbe heaviest timtier, and la
mounted on two pairs of small, heavy
trucks. Half of the car is covered over,
and the other half is a mere platform; but
arising from tho center is a powerful der
rick with a 3S foot boom. With this pow
erful contrivance trucks, cars and locom v
tives are swung about. Tbe covered por
tion of the ear resembles inside a storeroom
of a ship, as there are so many cables bann
In one end of the car are two closets, ore
containing the food for the crew. The
locker is always well filled, tor there U no
telling when the wrecking train maybe
called into service. The other closet or
locker contains medicines, bandages and i
portable telegraph out tit, with several coils
of wire. If the wreck is a bad oue the in
strument is brought into use. An operator
is picked up at the first station along th
road, and when the scene of the accident is
reached the wires are set ami a telegraph
cilice is established. The car carries rope
of every size and kind upto three inches it.
diameter, hydraulic jacks for raising en
gines and cars, levers, pulleys, and derrick
tackle of all kinds.
On the Louisville and Nashville first
division wrecking cars are carried
feet of Manila three inch roie for putting
engines on tho track, 800 feet of two inch
fiftl line for pulling purposes, 275 feet one
and three-fourth inch rope for the derrick,
two sixty foot sections of three inch switch
rope for pulling on cars, 240 feet two and
one-half inch rope for the same pnrpose.
and '2M feet of thret Inch rope for putting
on trucks, and 500 feet for guy lines. The
next car is the "block car," containing
short blocks of wood of every size for
blocking up cars and locomotives.
At every wreck cars are Kcnerally tum
bled about in confusion, and tho wrecking
crew begin on these. The shattered ones
are pushed off the track, and those left in
a little, better condition are put ou the
track and drawn away. After this is done
there is one or more disabled engiues. The
heavy cables ou the wrecking car are at
tached to tho disabled locomotix'c, and a
live one at the other end of the rope gen
erally by hard work pulls the disabled
locomotive back on the track. When the
track is clear the wrecking train picks up
all the iron and trucks ami comes liaek to
town. Louisville Courier-Journal.
A Stfry f Chinese tionlon.
There is a story told of Chinese (.iortlon,
one of the most striking which centers in
bis romantic personality. While he was
in CI ina there was some mutiny in the
army over bad rations or stopped pay. It
was Gordon's duty to stop that mutiny and
this is how he did it. lie had the men
drawn up and down and stood a few paces
in front of them. At his elbow were half
a dozen trusty fellows with loaded rifles.
"Now," he said, "you must have some
leaders; let them stand out and I'll speak
There was a moment's pause. "Come,
fall out:" said (ionlon again, in a cool,
everyday voice, as if he was ordering diu
ner. The men looked at one another, and
stirred in their places us his keen eye ran
aloug the ranks. Then two men stepped
forward, (ionlon quietly gave a signal to
his half dozen men with loaded rirles, and
the next moment the two ringleaders were
shot dead. So ended tbe mutiny. "But I
always think," liordon used to say medi
tatively after telling the story, "I alwuys
think I murdered those men." Boston
Canriln Holder fur ChriiitniHS Trees.
Children of all nt:c.s will appreciate an
improved holder of candles and taers for
Christmas tre-s, which promises to put an
end to the disaster and disappointment
which often ensues from the usual frail
fastenings. It is claimed that this holder
can tie readily nllixed to Christinas trees
and other articles, such as wall brackets,
wire, rope and other lines and supports,
however slight, for decorating, iltuminnt
ins ami general purposes. The invention
consists of an ordinary candle or taper
with a curved base to catch the grease
dropping from the candle, and one or more
lengths of flexible wire are left free to be
twisted or coiled around the object or arti
cle to which the holder is to be attached.
This little device, by its rigidity when once
fixed, insures the tapers burning down to
the socket n the exact position in which
they are desired. New York Commercial
New S.vBtMm of Operating Street RitilwHy.
A new system of operating street rail
ways has lieen patented. It is an applica
tion of the Archimedes screw. In a con
duit beneath the car track is placed a
wrought iron tul with a stout worm, and
in place of the grip used on the cable lines
is a shoe pushed forward by the worm, and
raised or lowered at the will of the oper
ator by n vertical rod. A velocity of four
teen miles an hour can le attained, and it
is claimed that the operating expenses will
be 41) per cent less than those of the cable
method. The mechanism promises to be
less likely to get out of order, and the cost
of repairs will be correspondingly less.
