RESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE
Thu terrible accident on the Vermont
.'outrai railroad, with its estimated awful
loss of sixty lives, is the worst railway dis
aster since tile memorable Ashtabula horror,
and is identical in all its agonizing details of
death by tire, which quickly swept the
wreck ami roasted to death the unfortunate
|iersons who were locked within the timbers
of the ruined cars beyond all passibility of
escape. For tho accident the railway is not
responsible, as no human, foresight 8 ean
provide against ttie [Hissible action of frost
iu causing broken rails at this season of the
year, but the tcrriblo consequences of the
disaster might have bscu reduced one-haif
at Ashtabula snd at Woodstock, if railway
managers Ware compelled by law to heat
their can by pipes from tho engine, and
light them by electricity. We do not for
get that President Depew, of the New York
Cent-al and Hudson, iu a raccnt publie
8)i*eoh. declare 1 that the great railreals of
the country had sought in v*in for a method
to heat and light cars that woul I secure the
passengers from death by fire in ease of
accident; but Mr. Depew is cither very
ignorant or dclihcratly disingenuous, for the
railways of Havana are compelled by law to
heat their ears by pipes from tho engine, and
to light them by electricity. There is a
railroad in Massachusetts that for several
years has heated its trains entiiely by pipes
from thu locomotive, to the complete satis
faction of its public, rod no one will dispute
that cars can be safely lighted by electricity
Of course of any necessary detachment of
the locomotive the heat would be cut off
temporarily, but this would be a trival
hardship that the public would patiently
endure for the sako of protection from sure
death by fire in cate of serious accident.
The awful spectacle at Ashtabula; at
Spuyten Devil; at the scene of the recent
aooident on tho Milwaukee and St. Paul,
and at Woodstock; not to recall a hundred
minor disaster«, where the wrecked ears
he cants the funeral pyro of the living and
the dead, ought never to bo repeated in
if law can be successfully invoked to compel
all railroads to exhaust tho mochanical
ability of the world, regardless of expense,
to make such holocausts impossible. All
railroads, so far as we have observed, carry
axes, saws and other tools ample to rescue
all living passengers speedily, who are pin
ned within tho wreck; but ail these imple
ments are useless when a wall of fire is be
twoen the ruins and all hope of rescue. At
Spuyten Devil a young married couplu,
whose escape waa cut off, stood up in the
corridor or the '-sleeper'' and slowly burned
to death, locked iu each other's arms, and
before tho horror-stricken eyra of the
father of the bridegtoom. The sights and
sounds at the Milwaukee nnd St. Paul
hnrror were bo agonizing that Bishop Whip
ple, of Minnesota, is now working for the
passage of a law compelling railways to
equip their cars with heat aud light-giving
apparatus that will make death by fire im
possible in case of accident.

iremely rare. Offer a tramp work—tawing
wood, for inatanoa—and you will learn that
h* is Buffering from rheumatism. As trade
unions object to haring these moo taught a
trade while in jail, and mechanics are not
disposed to work with them after they oo me
out of winter quarters, whst is to be done
with them ? We believe the beet thing to
teach them to mend their ways by compell
ing them to mend the public highway.
The roads are badly in need of improve
ment. and the trampe would be benefited by
the increased development of their muscle*
and the habit of industry they would learn.
They ahould certainly be compelled to do
that which will moat conduce to the welfare
of tha publie, oa whom they have lived like

the tramp nuisance bat the country from

town or city can tell when it will be atruok

Elsewhere in this imne will be found a
letter from Hon. Joho H. Mitchell to
the secretory of the board of trade of
this city, explaining his views of the
Inter state Commerce bill aud his antag
...
oouin towards it in the Senate. We
publish thu letter at the argent request
of Mr. Mitchell in order that he may
place himself in a proper light before bis
tin An ta j r
constituents .n Eastern Oregon, and for
the further reason that we criticised his
notion in the matter. Sine* we have
read the bill earefuHy, and tried to nn
demand the ambiguous clause, wo are
; i. i . ... . ,
inclined to believe « is not such n mess
nre m the people desired or expooted.
But it is a move in the right
and further congressional notion will nn
doubtcdlj be more favornble to the peo
, , . . . T . ..
pies interests. It is very evident that
railroad influence is felt in the highest
branch of the national ligislatnre, and
A cannot directly defeat measures intro
duced for the benefit of the pnblio, it hus
the power to eaue ambiguous phrases
be injected into bills that render then!
practically Ineffectual. This is generally
done in the committM room, and rarely
on tbo floor of the Senate or Hons«.
But it is premature to peas judgement
upon the bill until it hM been tooted, and
when it becomes n law its sneeeastnl
operation may yet disappoint its friands.

Colfax Commoner: A profession.d
gambler, known by (bo name of II rrv
llruwu, wlio has been lunging ar-mi I
lax for some lini ■, was urraigm-d b -
foru Justice Shaw on Monday nu >rt i i
a charge of assault wilh a deadly
weapon, and was bound over in the su u
ol ÿ'dOU to appear before the grand jury.
The bonds were furnished by Drown hi
the shape of the requisite amount iu
money, who immediately oti release
•kipped for other fields. Tho facts cun
nected with the matter are about as fol
lows : On Saturday evening last Dr..\vu
secured permission into the op< ra L'i.
then being occupied by the members of
the daucing class and club. This pres
cnce proved obnoxious, and he was pu
litely asked to leave, his admission l.u
being returned at tho same time. Hi-;
'tuest was made by George Chapin m, at
the solicitation of many other«, which was
received with oaths and a flat denial t„
accede. The matter was dropp -d, as tiio
young meu of the club did nut wish lo
create a disturbance at that time and
place. On Sunday evening while U-...
Chapman aud others were in the mack, r
bakery, Drown put in bis uppetr-uoo
und at ouce seized upon the form r, and
with an exclamation deluged him v. uh
a torrent of tohacci spit, and sTlV.o/
simultaneously. This brought on a few
blows, when friends of Chapman came
to bis aid, which proved too mu. b lor
the belligérant tobacco fiend and a Ui
and a revolver were drawn. At this
time of the proceedings others stepped in
and tho trouble brought to an end. The
gambler's arrest was made on the follow
ing morning wilh result as stated beh.ro.
It is obseaved, also, that several other
"bad men 1 ' saw fit to shake the snow of
Colfax off their feet at the same time
and seek more congenial clinics fur ihe
pursuit of their devilish professions.

w * 10 aro "fJcnt seekers after knowledge

coiupanied by a postage stamp and

the anxious inquiries will probably con
tinue to burst with ignorance."
It would seem that many persons o!
the cast are of tho opinion that ull that
public men, and especially editors, have
to do out west is to answer ail questions
that may bo asked by every numskull
residing in the cast, and that without
compensation. Some editors in the west
would be compelled to employ one or
two extra clerks to answer the numerous
calls for answers to enquiries in which
they haTe no particular interest. We do
not believe that if these answers could ail
be given to suit these numerous writers
and they oould be induoed to coma to
