He Preaches a Political Sermon anil Arouses the Ire of I'opocruU by Denouncing IJrjan. NEW YORK, Sept. 7.-Rev. Thomas" T5ixon, jr., preached a sensational sermon at the Academy of Music yesterday on "The Political Crisis." He said many pointed things of William Jennings Brvan 8nd th free-silver movement. In doing-so tie managed to sUr up a hornets nest ana create a scene in which cheers and hiss.a were about equally mingled. Prof. Edwin V. Wright, who founded the Antlmonmmlv League and the Blmetalhq Association, was in the auoienca. He has just returned from a stumping tour for silver with r.cnrw Fred Williams through New England. He jibienea quietly to Mr. Dixon until the preacher asserted that the Renuhlicnn party stood for all ' that was good and pure, while the Democratic party was the cnampion. of all that was the absolute re verse. Then Prof. Wright jumped to his leet, shook his fist ftat the pastor and ex claimed: "What you siv is false ahso lutely false. You ddn't know what you lire talking about." All were dismayed fcr a moment, and then a shout of applause arose, followed by a storm of hisses. Rev. Mr. Dixon had not expected all this, and It took him several minutes to discover his own loca tion. Those who came to pray and re mained to scoff were, however, clearly out numbered by those who approved of Mr Dixon s sentiments, and the hisses that proke in on the preacher's vigorous sen tences were drowned by the cheers and applause that greeted the preacher's de nunciation of what he termed political dis honesty. Mr. Dixon strongly supported Major Mc kinley and sound money. He claimed that it was the duty of every patriotic citizen to support the Republican candidates, and Bald that the election of Mr. Bryan would bring about a civil war and 3,000,000 men would be thrown out of employment. He began by saying: "I will make no apolot v lor preaching a political sermon, because I believe that politics is religion in action. Ine old prophets were not priests, but statesmen, and it is my ambition not to be a priest, but, like the prophets of old I believe that the salvation of this nation has and ever will depend upon the inde pendence of the voters. ...V.Thity"six years ago," he continued, this Nation was confronted with a great crisis, which resulted in the war of the rebellion, and again we are brought face to face with a great national crisis." Tuning his attention for a moment to the P. -ulists. Mr, Dixon said: "The Populists trie People's party are honest. The Peoples party is made up of-men of ed ucation and brains. The leaders of that party are not ignorant and poorly dressed as we are informed. Some of the leaders of the People's party are even handsomer than Theodore Roosevelt. Jerry Simpson whose sockless feet have been so ridiculed has more brains and culture than the av erage Democrat. The People's party in the South and West is the retorm party. It stands for the advancement and educa tion of the masses. It stands for the free and equal rights of all men of all classes." ' "DEAD AND IN HELL." - Th nhl.nn, l jutaf, uunvirmiuu was considered very briefly by Mr. Dixon, as follows: 'Wien the Chicago conCention met the Democratic party was dead and in hell. By a miracle the leopard changed its spots and gave up every principle that it had forgotten for 100 years. This was done for the sole purpose of gaining a President and the spoils of that office. No reform movement everentered the maw of De mocracy and came out anything but re fuse. The leaders of the Democratic par ty saw that it was dead, and its only chance was to seize on the new party and use it. Demooracv tsnhi itsoif fnr- cif,. pieces of silver. The only chance for the Populists in the South is to support the independent ticket with Tom Watson on Mr. Dixon then declared in favor of Mc Kinley in the following words: "I believe that in such a crisis that now confronts us it Is the duty of every patriotic citizen to vote a straight Republican ticket. I voted for Mr. Cleveland, and now, before God, acknowledge my sin." Then Mr. Bryan and his party were dis cussed by Mr. Dixon in a way that created the utmost excitement. He said: "The proposition of Mr. Bryan and his followers to pay the bonds of the United States, up on which 100 cents on the dollar was raised, in coin worth only 55 cents is down right rascality." Several persons shouted "That's false!" "You are wrong." ' Shut up!" and many of those present hissed. For a moment Mr. Dixon hesitated and seemed stunned, but he soon recovered himself, and ex claimed: "If the government does that, it goes into the bunco-steering business." He was again interrupted by loud and pro longed hissing and shouts of "That's not right." "You don't know what you are talking about.' One gray-haired man arose and exclaimed: "I wont stand this any longer," and rushed from the building. He was followed by fifty others, who cried, "Shame," as they left the room. Mr. Dixon became nervous and turned very pale, but was reassured by applause that overcame the hisses!- It was evident that the majority of those present held the same views as he did. "What Mr. Bryan and his followers want to do," resumed Mr. Dixon, "is to permit me to pay $l.(m) that I have borrowed with $:00." Again the hissing began and some one shouted "Liar!" Men and women from ail parts of the hall arose find left the room, many of them hissing as they went out. This ex- ; odus seemed to clear the academy of all those who violently opposed Mr. Dixon's remarks, for there was no more h'ssiuc. Mr. Dixon resumed by saying that Mr. Bryan and his followers proposed to permit the insurance companies to pay widows and orphans in a depreciated currency. Here a man shouted, "I am going to vote lor Bryan. ani several persons exclaimed, "Good." "That's right." THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. The Republican party." continued Mr. Dixon, "represents prosperity and honest iegislation. I believe the Republican party stands for the dignity and honesty of the United States, and I would fight the men who, in Chicago, said they were going to raise the banner of the South and West against the East. The present administra tion has pi vcd that the Democratic party Is Incapable of administering the affairs of this Nation. I do not say the present ex ecutive is to blame, but his party is. Un der this administration l,0d0,tW0 men have been thrown out of work and it is absurd to try to blame a gold standard for this condition ofaffairs. Why did not this sit uation of affairs happen under President Harrison's atiminlstratlon? "ConfirienceScannot be restored except by restoring to pNower that party which has. rigrhtly or wrofiKly, the contidence of the business men 4f the nation. The free-silver propogandii had its birth with capital ists. - Who started the free-silver move ment? The firmers? No; the farmers know little and cared less about it. I be lieve it was started ten years ago by a combination of mine owners, to force the output of their mines on the government. If the United States government owned all the silver mines do you suppose there would be a silver question?" "How about gold?" shouted a man. "1 believe." replied Mr. Dixon, "that the government should condemn and acquire all the gold and silver mines in the coun try." Continuing, he said: "I believe the only way to save the Nation is to elect Mr. McKinley. If Mr. Bryan should by any chance be elected, inside of twenty-four hours this city and the ether commercial cities will be in such a state of panic a.s this country has never seen before and be side which Mack Friday will be a pleasant holiday. Mr. Bryan and his followers don't deny this. They say we will get over it. We will get over it, but what will happen before we get over it? We got over the civil war, but with what misery! If Bryan is elected 2.003,000 more men will be idle, and. added to the l.Wi.Wi idle men caused by the present administration, we will have In this country n.uoO.ouO idle men. Will these men starve? No. they will light for bread, they will pillage, burn and murder. What will Mr. Bryan do? He will turn the army and navy on these men. The starving men will lire on the flag, and war will follow. "When the flag is fired on farmers of the West, the men of the South who are to day talking: free silver and supporting Bry an, will rally round the flag and shoot down these 3.O00,0u0 starving men. The starving and desperate men will be skilled and the Nation will be saved for this Na tion will survive forever, as I believe we are God's favored people." This closed the sermon, and the congregation was dis missed without any demonstration being made. Mr. Dixon was not at home when a re Dorter called at his residence. His secre tary stated that the outbreak in the Acad emy of Music was not unexpected by the pastor of the People's Church. "Mr. Dixon's church." said he. "numbers in its membership several Populists as well as a number of the Socialist party. Nat urally his remarks with regard to the 50 cent dollar did not please them, and sev eral members of the church made a demonstration." WARMER AND FAIR.

Mr. Bryan is evidently not much better posted on the war of the rebellion, its causes and effect, than he is on the finan cial question. The old soldiers believed at the time, and have labored under the de lusion for thirty-five years, that they were lighting to preserve the Union and the hon or of the Nation unsullied. The emancipa tion proclamation was an outgrowth of the war, not the object of the struggle. Had the people in the Confederacy accepted the magnanimous offer of Lincoln and laid down their arms within the specified time. slavery vould, in all probability, exist to day, n Yeier.Tns of 61 to 6u, what think you of the assumption? Did you tight four long years to free the slave or to save the Union? Are you willing to be "worked" by a smooth talker who says that "finan ciers are not made of any better mud than farmers or laborers or any other class of people," and yet presumes himself to make a financial policy for this country that would certainly bring disaster, and has- the effrontery to ask your assistance at the ballot box to put It into effect? In the name of heaven, where did they find the Bryan mud? If a crook attempts to work the "short-change racket" in ever so small a way and is detected, he is pun ished. What should be done with a leader xnd with a party that is endeavoring to work it on the Nation? SON OF A VETERAN. Indianapolis, Sept. 7. Governor Inttiievvs Exonerated. At a meeting of the arrangements com mittee of the five railway brotherhoods, held on Sunday, a copy of the appended letter from Grand Chief Conductor Clark, of the Conductors' Brotherhood, addressed to Governor Matthews, was read: "Dear Sir The inferences drawn by the representative of the Indianapolis Journal from remarks made in the union me tins of railway employes, held in your city on Sunday. Aug. 30. have undoubtedly been called 11 your attention. I sincerely resrrel mat you were not present to hear ust v. hat was said. The next i.-sue of the l.'aii- vvay Conductor, of which 1 am editor, on this subject will say: " The Indianapolis Journal, in its ac count of the meeting, states that Governor Matthews took j casion to say that he had always found the railroad men were his friends in politics, and he thanked thrm for it; that afterwards Grand Chief Conductor Clark took exceptions to this and delivered a somnvhat sharp rebuke to the Governor, 'for it was evidently the intention of II r. Clark to show that no man could properly lay claim to the support of the railroad men, for their votes were to be cast as the exigencies of each particular case might demand.' What Grand Chief Con ductor Clark said was. in substance, that these brotherhoods refrained very carefully from interfering with the religious an-i po litical inclinations or be'.iofs of their mem bers; that their intelligence could be de pended upon to infure their voting as their best interests might determine, but in the svpport of candidates for cilice as between the man who was known to be their friend and the friend of organised labor, and the man whose enmity was known or whose friendship was doubted, they might be depended upon to vote for their friends. It was not intended in any sense as a re buke to Governor Matthews or to anything which he had said.' "Hon. Claude Matthews, Governor of In diana, f "CcJar Rapids, la., Sept. 2." THE MONON'S TROUBLES OVER A MILLIOV OK ITS SECURITIES HELD UV PRESIDENT THOMAS. Death of G. It. Sherman The !S". V., it. & If. (o Ep.nln It Providence Division with Electric Power. The United States Investor devotes con siderable space in its current issue to dis cussing the appointment of a receiver for the Louisville, New Albany & Chicago road. It alleges that an obligation to a New York bank which had matured had something to do vith the receivership, although the real cause was the suits in the Beattyville bond matter. The Investor says: "Apropos of the Louisville, New Albany & Chicago re ceivership, it may be said that statements which have been made regularly have shown the road to be in good shape finan cially, fully able to meet all its obligations and earn its interest and other fixed charges. Its physical condition, too, is known to never have been better than at present. It was responding remarkably well to the money (some $5,000,000) which has been spent for betterments under the new management, when suddenly it was precipitated into bankruptcy. Years ago Mr. Carson, who was then vice president and general manager, with some of his associates, entered upon the construction of a road in Kentucky called the Beatty ville road, for short. "It is officially stated that Carson re ceived $100,000 for securing the guarantee of the Monon, in which he and some of his associate directors were interested. To ac complish this, he called a meeting, at which eight out of thirteen directors were invited and present, and this meeting authorized the guarantee, although the statute of In diana expressly declared that any guaran tee of bonds by a railway must be pre ceded by a petition of a majority of the stockholders of the corporation seeking the guarantee. As soon as the stockholders of the Monon heard of this action of Carson and his clique, they called a meeting and repudiated his action and ejected him and all his associates from the board. Carson died a few years ago. Undar these circum stances the Monon company has been claiming that the guarantee had no rela tions to the Monon and the latter received no benefit or money as a consideration for its alleged guarantee. The Beattyvi'.ie road does not come within seventy miles of the Monon road. Its bonds have been worthless for several years past, no interest has been paid on them, and the road could not sell fv-r receivers certificates, but a bright law yer in Louisvlille found he cound get the oonas together and enforce the eruarantee. which he did, and the judicial decision of juage Taft saddles the Monon with the Mebts of another road. Of course, the case will be taken to the United States Supreme court, wmcn convenes in October, and a fight will be made to reverse the decision. However, this does not save the Monon from reorganization. Within a few days a committee will be appointed, reoresenttn the bondholders of the road, and a process or roreciosure, under an existing mortgage. will be Instituted. It is stated there is not likely to be an assessment of the stock since the property was thoroughly recon structed during the past four years. A leading official of the company sates that tne floating- debt of the road asereffates about $500,000, which is the liability referred 10 in tne loregomg by uenerai Thomas. The road, he says, was assisted in carry ing this by a prominent bank, and it was intended to bond the Lafayette shoos and Indianapolis terminals, sell the securities and pay off the" bank. But when suits were commenced in the Beattyville claims the bank refused to render further assistance. President Samuel Thomas has personally, it is stated by a leading director, over one million in cash in the common and pre ferred stock, and in excess of one million invested in the bonds. The annual report for the year endinar June 30. 1896. has not yet been made public, but will appear snortly, and, I am assured, will show a surplus over all charges of in excess of $100,000." Alleged Violations of Law. A series of important investigations of charges against railroads throughout the West will be made by the Interstate-com merce Commission, beginning at Chicago in the United States courthouse Sept. 17. Many of these cases are of great signifi cance to railfoads and shipping interests generally. One of the most important is that of Paine Bros. & Co., of Milwaukee, vs. the Lehigh Valley Railroad et ah The hearing of this case will be on charges of unreasonable rates on wheat, corn, rye and barley in cargo lots from Buffalo to Philadelphia, New York and other points. The Paine company is the lake shipper of these cargoes. This will be 'heard at Chicago Sept. 17. The dates of other hear ings follow: At Chicago Sept. 18, S. R. Hogaboom, of Crestou, la., vs. the Chica go, Burlington & Quincy railroad. Involv ing alleged excessive rates on hard coal in carloads from Chicago and Streator, 111., to Creston, la.; Suffern, Hunt & Co., Decatur, 111., vs. the Indiana, Decatur & Western railroad, involving excessive rates on corn between Garrett and Camargo, 111., and Indianapolis, Ind., and alleged overcharges from shipping shelled corn from Linther, 111., to Cincinnati. The com mission will also investigate on Sept. 21 alleged unlawful rates and practices in the transportation of grain and grain products by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe and others, to be adjourned for further hear ing at Kansas City. Mo., Sept. 24; at Kan sas City Sept. 25, Board of Railroad Com missioners of Kansas vs. the Atchison road, alleged excessive rates on corn in carloads from central and southwestern Kansas to Galveston, Tex., and other points in Texas and Louisiana: Wichita Commercial Club Association of Wichita, Kan., vs. the Atchison road, on similar charges; transportation charges on export and domestic traffic by the Kansas City, Fort Scott & Memphis road. At St. Louis, Sept. 2S. Business Men's League of St. Louis vs. the Iron Mountain & Southern railroads et al., alleged excessive rates on various kinds of freight in less than car load quantities from St. Louis and other points to Texas points; transportation charges on export and domestic traffic by Missouri Pacific and Iron Mountain roads, and on Sept. 29. Biloxi Mississippi Milling Company vs. the Louisville fc Nashville, grain and coal alleged excessive rates from East St. Louis and other points to Biloxi. Georpre Ti. Sherman Dead. L. J. Blaker, general agent of the White line at this point, yesterday forenoon re ceived a telegram from Buffalo stating that George B. Sherman, general manager of the Vanderbilt fast freight line, died at 5 o'clock yesterday morning. The deceased was a few days ago on his way to his office in his carriage when one of his horses became frightened and started to run away. Mr. Sherman jumped out, strik ing on his left hand and head, bruising and cutting both badly. He was taken to his office and surgeons called, who dressed his wounds and he was removed to his home. His condition from that time was critical. On Friday he rallied for a short time and then passed into a semi-conscious condition, dying yesterday morning. "To say that George B. Sherman was one of the most popular and best-known freight officials in the country." said C. C. Pierce, general agent of the Merchants' Despatch at Indianapolis, "is no exaggeration." He entered railroad service in 1S65, leaving a book store in Buffalo to become clerk to D. K. Folsom. who was the agent of the Merchants' Despatch and the American Express Company. In 1868 the two offices were separated. Mr. Folsom continuing as agent of the American Express until trans ferred to Indianapolis, and Mr. Sherman, with the separation, was made agent of the Merchants' Despatch at Louisville; in 1S71 he was appointed Southwestern agent of the company, in 1SS2 he was promoted to Western agent, with headquarters at Cleveland; in 1SS2 he was appointed general Western agent cf the Merchants' Despatch Transportation Comi.any. with headquar ters at Chicago; in 1S83. with the consolida tion under one management of the Red. the White and the Midland fast freight lines, operating over the Vanderbilt sys tem, he was appointed general manager, in which position he made an enviable record. East-Bound Shipments. East-bound shipments last week were 61,995 tons, against 63,179 for the preceding week and 57,232 for the corresponding week of last year. The roads carried tonnage as follows: Michigan Central. 7,382; Wabash. 6,698; Lake Shore, 8.3x8; Ft. Wayne, 6,4!2; Panhandle. 6.057; Baltimore & Ohio. 5.8x3; Grand Trunk, 5,825; Nickel-plate, 6.622; Erie. 5.592; Big Four, 3,032. The tonnage was made up of the following articles: Flour, 2,678; grain and mill stuffs. 2t,739; provisions, lard, etc., 14.324; dressed beef 0.629; grass seed, 1,973; butter, 2,041; hides, 1.511; lumber, 3,050: miscellaneous, 1.892. Shipments for the week were 130,130 tons. The Business of Acgcst. The official train records show that in August the fifteen lines handled at Indian apolis 104.277 cars. 79.42S being loaded, against 80.273 loaded cars in August, 1S95; 84,235 in August. 1894, against 79.397 in Au gust, 183: against 94,880 in August. 1812. and against S2.312 in August, 1S91. One of the striking- features of last month's busi- i ness was the large number of empty cars handled in proportion to the total, it av eraging over 809 empty cars per day, against 2,562 loaded cars per day. Personal, Local and General Xotes. In the board of directors of the Northern Pacific Philadelphia capital is about as largely represented as in the old organiza tion. Jackson township, Wells county. Indiana, by a vote of 319 to 8 yesterday refused to pay $16,000 as a subsidy to the Indiana Cen tral railroad. A. A. Heard, late general passenger agent of the Great Northern, yesterday began service as secretary of the central passen ger committee. B. A. Squire has been appointed contract ing freight agent of the Lake Shore at Chi cago. He was formerly with the Chesa peake & Ohio Southwestern. The traffic department of the Chesapeake & Ohio has informed Louisville shippers that they will be protected in the rate war as far as the Seaboard Air Line cuts to the Carolinas are concerned. The Southern Express Company has just completed a fine office butlding at Mem phis. Tenn. It is built of steel, is fire proof and eight stories high. The ground floor is occupied for handling express mat ter and the upper stories as offices. Receiver Clarke, of the Union Pacific, thinks the chances of a reorganization of that road exceedingly remote, hinting even the possibility of tne government taking it for its debt. The statement that a new line could be built for less than the mort gage debt of the present company is doubt less true. The officials of the New York. New Ha ven & Hartford have under consideration the advisability of equipping the Provi dence division with electricity. Vice Presi dent Kendrick says that the company thinks the scheme entirely practicable, and probably with the advent of another sum mer work will be begun with that end in view. Present indications are that the roads in Indiana. Ohio and Virginia are to handle more apples this year than has ever been known before. There are two counties in Ohio that expect to ship 100.000 barrels of apples this fall, and the freight officials in these States are preparing to handle them, as many will probably be shipped quite a distance. Two of the new freight engines which the Vandalia is receiving can haul as many cars as three of the old ones, and this has resulted in the dismissal of fifteen firemen and the setting back of fifteen engineers to firing. When the twenty-two new en gines are in service more firemen will be dismissed, it is understood, or given work in some other line on the road. As nothing has been done of importance looking to the permanent organization of the mileage book depository by Chairman Caldwell, of the Western Passenger Asso ciation, H. C. Townsend, general passen ger agent of the Missouri Pacific, has noti fied Mr. Caldwell that unless the question Is soon settled the Missouri Pacific will withdraw from the Western Passenger As sociation. The fifth biennial convention of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen will convene at Galveston, Tex., on Tuesday of next week. On Friday a special train of Wagner cars will leave St. Louis over the Missouri Pacific, carrying the delegates. and will return by the Missouri, Kansas & Texas. W. J. Hugo, of this city, will rep resent as delegate, the Indianapolis divi sion, and W. A. Cannaan goes as an alter nate. It is stated that the passenger earnings of the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton lines for the year ending June 30, 1896, come nearer to the average of former years than those of any road operated in Ohio or In diana. One of the good features with this system is that it strikes so many good towns and has such a satisfactory local business, the trolley lines not having af fected to any extent their local traffic. There are no drones in the passenger serv ice of the C, H. & D. company. The more important roads are now con sidering the problem of reducing the num ber of cars and adding to the tonnage car ried by each car, so as to make a decrease in cars. The custom of hauling one car a hundred miles or more '- with half a load is to be abolished as far as possible, and the rule will be to load cars to their full capacity and in his manner add to the average train load. This plan would in sure greater earnings per car and per train, and proportionately decrease the ex pense of transportation. The late decision of the Interstate-commerce Commission in the case of the Omaha Commercial Club vs. the Chicago & Rock Island and other roads, makes one point which carries with it considerable im portance, as under this clause, of the de cision: "Through rates are matters of con tract between carriers composing through lines, and the commission has "no power to compel connecting carriers to contract with each other. If, in case of shipments under a through bill of lading and a through rate, the privilege of 'stoppage in transit' at an intermediate point and try ing to market there, and, if it be found unsatisfactory, of reshipping on to the point of original destination at the balance of the through rate, be lawful, the granting of it to one locality and denying of it to another under substantially similar circum stances would be an unjust discrimination against the latter." W. H. Baldwin, who succeeds Austin Corbin, deceased, as president of the Long Island road, will be the youngest railway official holding the position of president in the country, being but thirty-five years of age. He is a graduate of Harvard Col lege, of the class of '84. He took up the law, and would doubtless have pursued the even tenor of his way but for the influence of Charles Francis Adams and an indorse ment by President Lhot, by which he was persuaded to join the staff of the Union Pacific railway. When he left this property it had -passed into the control of Jav Gould. Next Mr. Baldwin became connected with the Flint and Fere- Marquette railway, and worked up to be general manager. He was called to help in the reorganization of the Richmond terminal, which was de veloped into the Southern railway by Sam uel Spencer, then connected with Drexel. Morgan & Co. In the growth of this sys tem it is said that Mr. Baldwin's energy and power as an organizer were conspicu ous. Engines 200 and 201. on the Big Four. which were, when put in service, consid ered the best passenger engines in the world, have now been in service- one year and are performing better than in the first month in service, blnce they were built by the Schnectady locomotive works, the Van dalia. the Baltimore & Ohio Southwestern, the Boston & A.irany and the Fitchburg have each had a number built of the same pattern. These engines are admired not only by American experts, mechanics and machinists for their excellent proportions and the manner in which they haul heavy trains, nut oy a numner or foreigners who have visited this country in the last twelve months. Nearly all the railway magazines have published the dimensions of the en gine, and with it cuts and in several cases shown the remarkable performance of these pieces of fine machinery, which seem to have taken the name of the Garstang engine an over me country, and a ior eign paper speaks of them as the Garstang type. General Manager Loree, of the Pan-han dle lines, is quoted as saying that "the .Fan-handle officials, like all other well managed railroads, at this time is makine- every effort to make the expenditures come within the revenues Every nook and cor ner is being searched, and where a position is found that indicates a sinecure or even partially so. there is a head that drops into the basket. On a great system like the Pan-handle, in the course of vears of brisk business a great many places will be filled that have their uses at the time, but when dull business comes their duties are largely normal and could be shifted to the shoulders of others without serious injury to the service and this is being done as expeditiously as possible. There is a black smith's helper here, a watchman there, an extra clerk in some other place all over the country that could be dispensed with, and when the total is made the figures are simply astonishing to even those familiar with the routine of the business of a big trunk line." The Toledo & Ohio Central assierrs as a reason for . its withdrawal from the Cen tral Passenger Committee Association that it has evidence that the Cincinnati. Hamil ton & Dayton has been cutting rats. and a Toledo paper abuses Chairman Donald, of the Central Passenger Committee, for not protecting the Toledo & Ohio Central. It alleges that Mr. Donald protects the strong lines and ignores the weak ones. From reading the comment regarding: the Toledo & Ohio Central of late one would think it was one of the strone: lines of Ohio. Those who know Mr. Donald well know that he is very just in his rulings and tries to eive no general pnssenifer aeent nnv errounds for complaint. The real troub le with the Toledo ei Ohio Central, says a passenger man. is that it wants to get out of the association and becom'i a free lance asrain as in former years. So far as the Cincinnati. Hamilton & Dayton is con cerned there is not a road in the Central Passenger Association territory which is a greater stickler for full tariff rates. COMMERCIAL RECORD THE JOBBING TRADE.
