lUglous Rloliday of rearly all these workers.
Sunday is usually one of theIr busiest days.

,ood standing, and that the brotherhood

CALM THE EATOR al AeG R
Defeat Prophesied for the Would
FRANK, EARNEST TALK
Prom a Staff Correspondent.
. PITTSBURG; July 2.-The man who is
at the head of the anti-Quay movement
in the western portion of Pennsylvania .s
Mr. Chris Magee, one of the triumvirate
of Quay-killers, composed of'Messrs. Hast
ings, Martin and Magee. Mr. Magee, in an
interview with The Star correspondent yes
terday, frankly outlined for the benefit of
the readers of The Star the ostensible rea
sons for the present antagonistic relations
existing between him and the man who
up to this time has been regarded as the
head of the republican party in the state.
Before entering on Mr. Magee's inter
view. however, it will be in order to say
something about Mr. Magee himself, for
he is an interesting figure at this time and
is likely to come more prominently into
public view if he wins his fight against
Mr. Quay. Mr. Magee is the political
"b6ss" of Pittfburg, recognized and admit
ted as such. The term is not used in an
offensive sense, however, fo- he is said
to be a kindly and a generous boss, a good
-master in a place where a master han- is
needed. -From the best accounts I have
been able to obtain, the yoke which he im
poses is borne with gentle resignation
by those who sometimes feel it heaviest,
because there are compensating features
in connection with it for the good of the
Advantage of Having a Boss.
A citizen explained this by saying that in
a city like Pittsburg it is well to have a
vigorous boss, who combines politics with
public Improvements, because public affa!rs
are handled with dispatch, and although
the taxpayers may have to pay a heavier
toll, they at least derive benefit from the
works undertakerr. Mr. Magee is said to
control the city government and municpal
politics, through which his friends and
himself are enabled to secure franchises,
build street car lines, carry on public im
provements and handle big- contracts for
the city. Whenever there is anything to be
done Mr. Magee is said to have the city
gover pment provide the means and his
friends execute the plans.
In contrast to this state of affairs in
Pittsburg Is the city oi* Allegheny, just
across the river, whose public water supply
is pumped direct from the filthy waters of
the river front of Pittsburg and opposite
the outlet of a main sewer. It is said that
in the absence of a good. sturdy boss ;n
Allegheny the Vetty politicians pull. and
baul the city government so that no good
water system can be provided, and in the
meantime the city is fairly pest-ridden by
typhoid fever. It is not improbable, accord
ing to this argument, that if Mr. Magee's
progressive bossism were removed from
Pittsburg the citizens would come to han
ker for it and its results again, like tho men
of old who longed for the flesh-pots of
Egypt after escaping from their bondage.
Mr. Magee is a man of wealth, which has
been amassed, it is said, by this happy
combination of city. politics and business.
He is shrewd, active, magnetic, generous
ard a good fighter. He is out for Mr. Qua'y's
political life-blood, and makes no conceal
ment of the fact. He controls a big news
paper, Is a leading spirit in the traction
syndicate, stands well with the Pennsylva
nia railroad people, and is an all-around
big man in Pittsburg. Outside of the city
his potentiality is very limited, except
through thie connectons he is making with
others who are influential.
Mr. Magee's View of the Situation.
"This contest with Mr. Quay was not
precipitated by those who are now opposing
him," said Mr. Magee, with an assumption
of great candor. "Let me review the his
tory of Pennsylvania politics for the past
few years. We had seen the defeat of the
candidate for governor whom Mr. Quay in
slsted upon nominating against the pro
tests of many of his associates in repub
lIcan politics. The next man we put up
carried the state by a good. round fgure,
and republican prospects began to revive.
We rolled up a larger majority at the con
gressional elections and in the election of
a Congressman-at-large simply swept the
democracy out of sight. We whipped them
soundly in the city elections at Philadel
phia, and the democracy has been on a
steady decline. Much of this was done un
der the administration of Col. Gilkeson as
.chairn an of the state committee. We
knew his works and wanted to continue
him in -a position where he could keep up
the record he made for us.
"Then, at this juncture. in stepped Sena
tor Qgy, with the demand that he should
be made state chairman. He came as a
disturbing element, and there was no occa
sion 'or his interference. The people re
sented it, and that !s the cause of the op
positin-i to him."
Quay the Aggressor.
"Then you maintain that Senator Quay
was the aggressor in this fight?"
"Why, certainly. At a time of profound
pea-e and unexampled prosperity in the
republican party he intruded himself as a
bone of contention to produce factional
friction. No disturbance would have oc
curred had he kept out."
"But why should his candidacy for chair
man of the state committee be the cause
of discord in the party?"
"Because he :aises the issue at once
whether the republicans of Pennsylvania
shall longer submit to the domination of
one man. He attempts to be the supreme
dictator of all federal patronage of the
state, and to take complete charge of the
party, irrespective of the wishes and der
mands of the people of the different sec
tions. who should have a voice in the dis
posal of such matters. He has contended
that the United States Senators should dis
pense all the federal patronage, whiie oth
ers believe it should be left to the party
organizations in t'he districts most directly
concerned. His plan will not do any longer
in this state, and the people demand a
change. He endeavored to dictate the
course of the party in Philadelphia in
electing the mayor of that city, and when
he was defeated in his attempt madE an
attack upon his political associates from
the floor of the United States Senate. In
every way, recently, he has evidenced his
determinaticn to become more and more of
a political dictator. His candidacy for the
chairmanship of the State committee sim
ply made an - Issue where the people can

potism. He has insisted upon being the

Prediction of Quays Defeat.
"In my opinion he will be overwhelming
ly defeated in this attempt, and his dicta
torship will be completely repudiated by
the republicans of this state when they
meet in convention at Harrisburg next
month. The tide is against him too strong
for him to breast it. and he is sure to go
down. I have gone into this contest in
earnest, and for the sake of the principle
that the whole federal patronage of the
state should not be controlled by one United
States Senator or two, but that the people
should have a voice in its disposal. The
threat which he made in an interview a
day or two ago that he waaeld 'hold up'
nominations in the Senate if he were not
consulted in their making is but ap indica
tion of the fact that he believes himseif
the sole arbiter of the political fortunes of
"What will be the effect upon the make
up of Pennsylvania's delegation to the
rational conveition in the event of Sena
tor Quay's defeat?"
"That's a year hence." replied Mr. Magee,
"and the first thing Is to defeat him. Of
course it would divide the delegation, and
no one canx tell at this time what presi
dential candidate would have the call on
Pennsylvania's delegates. That will be a
matter for future determination."

Last week Maxwell, with his pastor, Rev.

the truth of the scandal. It is supposed
Mr. Johnston was present to Intercede for

that there was no desire to .dispense with

Plans Made for Connecting the
PRESIDENT NEWBOLD TALKS
Mr. William Kesley Schoepf, the vice
president and general manager of the Eck
hLgton and Belt street railroad companies
of this city, today tendered his resignation
to the president, Mr. David M. Newbold.
This action was taken by Mr. Schoepf for
the reason that he is general manager as
well as the engne'r of the construction
ccmpany which has been organised for tb
purpose of building the electric road be
tween this city and Baltimore, and he finds
that the latter interest will require his en
tire time and attention. The resignation
will be acted on at the next meeting of the
board of directors, when Mr. Schoep's suc
censor will be appointed.
In speaking about the matter today Mr.'
Newbold. who. Is the president of the two
companies, as well as of the proposed road
between this city and Baltimore, said he
lad hoped that it would be possible to re
tain Mr. Schoepf's valued services in the
management of the two roads in this city,
but he recognized that the important duties
connected with the construction of the
road between this city and Baltimore would
require his undivided attention, and he had
therefore, received his resignation with re
He is a native Wf this city, and began
his career as one of the corps of engineers
connected with the District government.
He then went into business for himself and
laid out a large number of the subdivisions
near thia city. He did a notable work in
the construction of the Rock Creek rail
road and in devising the plan for the
Chevy Chase subdivision.
When the idea of an electric road be
tween this city and Baltimore was first
evolved Mr. Schoepf's services were se
cured, and he had charge of conducting
the preliminary surveys. At that time a
number of Philadelphia capitalists, known
as the Widener and Elkins syndicate, were
interested in this enterprise, and Mr.
Schoepf was selected as their representa
tiye in this city. As is well known, the
plans of this syndicate provided not only
for the building of an electric road be
tween the two cities, but the acquisition
of street railroads in the two cities which
would sefve as arteries of this road. ,
After the syndicate had purchased the
Eckington and Belt roads inthis city, Mr.
Schoepf was intrusted with the manage
ment of these properties, And has continued
in that capacity up td the present time.
His promotion to what may be considered
a wIder field and a more important duty is
regarded by those who are aware of his
ability as a deserved recognition of valu
The Road to Baltimore.
At the head of the construction company.
of which Mr. Schoepf is now the general
manager and civil engineer, is Col. Doug
lass, who built the New York branch of the
Baltimore and Ohio road.
In talking today about the prcposed elec
tric road between this city and Baltimore,
Mr. Newbold, the president of the company,
said to a Star reporter that there had been
delay. ewing to the difficulty in securing
the right of way, but all these difficulties
Iad been removed, and it was expected
that next week the active -%crk of con
struction would be begun. It was the in
tention to start gangs of men at work at
both ends of the line, and to push the en
terprise forward as rapidly as possible.
He said that the company owned street
railroads in Baltimore as well as in Wagh
ington, which were the arteries of the
proposed road between this city and lal
timore, It was the design that conductors
on the street railroads owned by the com.
pany in this city and in Baltimore should
sell tickets on the, cars which would be
good not only for passage in the cities, but
through to either city and to points inter
The rates, ef course, 'e said, would be

and the frequency with which the cars
*ould be run, added to the cheapness of
-the fare, would, in his opinion, very ma
terially increase the volume of travel be.
tween this city and Baltimore.
The roadbed that would be built would
be full. gaqge, Pennsylvania pattern, and
the equipment would be first-class in every
He considered that the new road, as it
supplied easy and rapid communication be
tween two such important centers of
population, might properly be regarded as
an enterprise of the greatest importance.
The plans of the company have, he said,
passed the experimental stage, and their
practical execution is now but the question
of a short time.
TIE ECKIlNGTON TROLLEY.
An Answer to Correspondents WVho
Defended the Company's Course.
To the itor of The Evening Star:
Mr. S. K. Spalding, whose communica
tion in defense of that awfully abused
Eckington and Soldiers' Home railroad ap
peared in Saturday's Star, seems to think
that because the road has not sucoceded
in killing or maiming a dozen or more peo
ple every year since its existence its'con
tinued unl.wful occupatitn and obstruc
tion of a public thoroughfare is justified,
and thereftre he assumes to "speak a good
word for thi. company," as he expresses
What right has Mr. Spaldin'g to chamn
pion the cause of this law-defying corpora
tion or to prate about "our trio of kings
or masters?" He has not been a resident
of the District long enough yet to become
a naturalized citizen, having but recently
migrated from that antiquated city of
Philadelphia, where the trolley reigns su
preme, is but a temporary sojourner In
Eckington, and hEs resided there only
about three mtonths. He has no property
inter'ests in that suburb or elsewhere along
the line of this road, and having his own
horse and carriage, which he uses to go to
and from his place of business, does not
depend upon the 'trolley cars, and, there
fore, has had no experience upon which to
base an intelligent or authentic judgment
as to the past or prerent service of this
road. He is, therefore, not competent to
form or express an opinion upon the sub
ject. Mr. Gilmer, who follows Mr. Spald
ing In aa erticle In defense of railroad cor
porations generally, suggests that inas
much as the Court of Appeals will have to
pass upon this -case, the public should let
the matter rest until'that court decides it.
If the Eckington Company had an honest
case or any repsonable foundation upon
which to rest an appeal the public would
be perfedtly willing to await the court's
decision, wIth no apprehension as to the
result, but when it is known that there is
no ground Whatever for the appeal, and
that it was taken for the purpose of delay
only, they are inpatiently anxious to see
this corporation brought to a quicker real
ization of the fact that It is but a creature
of the public's creation and must respect
and obey tl,e will of its creator.
Mr. Gilmer says further that If the op
position to this road is to continue the
charter might as well be surrendered. That
is just what should be dione. The present
management, after ample cpportunity, hav
ing fully demonstrated its utter Inability to
properly operate the road or to furnish a
reasonably decent service with the. means
at its command, should no longer be per
mitted to mnonopolize a valuable franchise,
but should retire or be compelled to retire
from the business and make room for more
progressive and enterprising men, who call
and wlll mc dernly equip the road, give the
.public a satisfactory servjce and bring its
atcck to a dividend-prying basis.

He was conveyed in a carriage by Mr.

took a ca. and went to Baltimore. In that
