Railroad Company tAward b this city, and gave as an instance its arbi- > trary course in the matter of the reduction C of the grade on Seventeenth street, cut- ? ting sewers that the city bad constructed, 1 and in the peculiar construction of the A drains made by the company in certain n localities, and also as to the injuries sua- tl tained by horses in crossing the track on tl Seventeenth street. t< Thinking the above was a state of affairs c that the city would not tamely submit to, fi a "tourist" irom this paper thought ho ti would ask some of the B. & 0. officials L what they meant by their arbitrary and h aggressive "policy" toward the city, and I why tho proper respect was not shown s1 the officials, especially the Chairman of fi thft i rVininiittoa nn Nlroota A lluva ami ? Grades, arid tlieCity Surveyor. At the tl depot lie encountered Capt.' Georgo M. k Wliitescarver, Superintendent of the o Hempflelrl, ana'a gentleman well acquaint- v ed with that road, and aiso with the al- a leged "irregularities" on Seventeenth a street. c "Captain, what is the matter with the ft city and the B. & 0., we asked, and what ti kind of a policy are you pursuing?" v "Come along with me and I will show g you, he said," and together we proceeded e to the intersection of Twelfth street and 8 the B. AO. Horeabovethe railroad wns a j broken boggy- piece of gronnd. Slipping ? in upon the road and from its appearance ii always threatening to give way. "This, li you see," said the Captain, is the result of a eewer built within the last year, and l turned loose upon : the gronnd at McCol- u loch street, rendering the gronnd broken L and calming it to slide down on ub at short intervals. The water formerly was divert- f 4 , GU aiuuuu lUUWIIUUU BUUCk LL? I21&ICC111U 1 and then discharged under our 1 road, easily and conveniently, but \ the new man was struck witii this brilliant idea and you see tho result, o Coming a square further west you will i find another sewer at Thirteenth street 1 turned looeenpon us which also causes us L ! much trouble. At Fourteenth street a box s sewer is built right up to and nearly over e our track, and is constantly discharging a i large quantity of water upon and around \ our track, softening the soil and disturb- s ins the bed. Tlere is also another source e of trouble, the dumping of ashes and dirt ( < over the bank upon our track. We call- i ed the attention of the Mayor to this nui- i sauce, and it was stopped at certain pluces, a but we are'continually annoyed, and we s have frequently to employ carts to remove b the rubbish dumped upon the track." & Other sewers also were shown us s through which water was discharged on r the track of the Henpfield. and on a lot of i the company near Woou Btreet a ditch c wus being dug a short time ago. butthe authorities interfered and Htonned it. Bv fl this time we had reached the head of f Seventeenth street, the street upon which a the grade was so much higher than it i should be, and where horses wore daily t sacrificed by the "arbitrary policy" of the c company. "Here," said Captain "White- s scarver, "is another 'bugaboo,' and I I wont to call your attention to the lay of the e land here. You will observe that this 1 street is just finished, and as a matter of e 1 course we could do nothing until the city e had fixed the grade and reduced the street to that grade, and if'you will notice, it is 1 irregular on each side, now iu many c places, and even when we do comply with I the ordinance, the same trouble that pre- c vails now will be present then. I intend g to reduce our track next week, and would I have sooner had the city been road v.'' i Councilman'Kimberly also found us in 1 our "tour" and very attentively listened \ to the conversation as it was of the ' high- i e$t importance," and very kindly volun teereu suggestions, as -to the arrangement t of certain difficulties in the way of a re* duction of grade. t The policy of the company, to one who s goes over the ground, does not appear so a very arbitrary .after all. j \ Personal.?Col.

'wo Passenger Trains Collide at Belton. hrw Hen Killed and On* Nuppo?ed io be Futalljr Injured. Suuday morning about one o'clock a Upatch was received at the B. & 0. office i tun city that tram No, Uuo, Captain lavid Stewart conductor, which leaves ore at 0:05 p.'u., had collided with train to. Ton, Captain Bullcn, due In thin ity at U p. w, Saturday night, at 10 'clock at Helton, and that several emloyea had boon killed. Capt. Devries at nee ordered outa tut engine, several exra coaches, and the wrecking appliances t hand, and prepared to go to the cene ol the disaster, but owing to the on-arrlval ol instructions Ironi Capt. tailoy, Supervisor ol trains, did not leave ntil 2 r. M., and waa met at Cameron by train coming West, Irom which he lamed that the necessary work hud been one in the matter, and as Capt. Bailey .as already on the grounds his presonco rould not be required, so ho returned on be other train. Erom the Captain we learned the tolswing particulars ol the collision: On icli division ol the Baltimore and Ohio tailroad is a supervisor ot trains who has bsolute control of their movements, and tteuds to all matters relative to trains, 'nder him is what Is called a dispatcher, i-liu is also telegraph operator, and who is tie lieutenant ol tho supervisor, and in it>nrlv all InRtancm director nf trains. 'ho directing office of the Fourth Division i at Fairmont, and the dispatcher's name ?i D. Walker during the day, and at TgnT a tra-ng.. jo an named lirodie, forlerly of this city. Mr.' Walker during the itter part of Saturday afternoon had telegraphed orders to Captain Stewart, of raiu No. i, at Cameron, to meet rain No. 10 at Board Tree Tunnel, n the evening, when the night "dispatcher ame on duty he noticed that No. 1 was ehind time, aud to expedite matters for lo. 10 gave the conductor of that train, 'apt. Bullen, orders to meet No. 1 at telton, a point further west than Board* 'ree, and telegraphed No. 1 his orders to loundsville, which were received and arungements made for their proper execuIon. But atCaineron the oonductor received tie orders of the day dispatcher, Walker, 5 meet at Board Troe, and as the latest reeived orders take precedence he took no urther notice of the Moundsville instrucions, aud prepared to go to Board Tree, tut when he roached Helton, going at a jgh rate of speed, his train ran into No. 0, that was approaching the switch at the tation, and was only about fifty yards rom it when struck. The shoca, of ourse, was terrific, and the result was liat the engineer and fireman were illed outright, and also a* boy 10 r 17 years of age, whose name .as Flanagan, aud seriously injuring nother youth, a negro, who were stealing ride to Clark&burg, and together with one ther boy, were silting on the front platarm of the baggage car of No. 1, next the under of the engine. On the other train, fb\ch was moving very Blowly, the onineer, seeing the danger, jumped off and scaped, aud his fireman, attempting the ame, jumped upon a stake that was in his fay to the ground, and was impaled, the take, entering his thigh, and was driven nto his body; and fatal results are appre iended in MB case. George Shinn, postal clerk on train No. 0 coming west, was seriously injured, ml taken to his home at Fairmont, -where te lies in a critical condition. Both engines are a total wreck. A rerigerator car, loaded with butter from the Vest, on train No. i, was mashed to pieces, 'he postal and baggage cars on both trains rere wrecked. The wrecking train, with Captain Bailey n board, arrived near daylight, the debris emoved and tbe dead men placed oaNo. 0 and sent to this city* Tbe fleliy Caused y the collision only amounted to about ix hours. Of the men killed all were removed to the dead house of the company n this city below Twenty-sixth Btreet. rhere they were properly coffined ana ent to their houses. James Ankew, the ngineer of train No. 1, lived at 2321 Jbapline street, had been for many years n the employ of the road, was sober and ndustrious and was comfortobly fixed, md leaves his family in good clrcumtances. He was found sitting on the eat he occupied on his engine, but trange to say, with the exception of a light mark on one of his limbs, he bore lo mark whatever of the collision, and it b supposed he died inBtantly from conusHion of the brain. John Smith, the fireman, was between 0 and 35 years of age, and lived atTwentyourth and Water Btreets, where he leaves 1 family. He also was an old employe of he company, in various capacities, having >een in the "yard" at the depot in this, ity for a long time. The officers here peak highly of his worth and habits, ie was found at a little distance from the mgine, terribly cut and bruised about the ower part of the body, a portion of his calp torn ofT and his lower limbs badly caiueu. The tramp's neck was broken, his loft eg also, and also several ugly cuts were in his head and other parts ol hit person, le had on a gray suit ol tweed, a "blue ibeckcd" shirt, and was barefoot His :eneral appearance indicated that he had ieen on the train but a short time as it) eoot or dirt that would naturally, from lis nearness to the engine, accumulate, vas found upon him and he was very teat and clean. His body was brought to this city and urned over to Zink & Co. for Interment. It is impossible at this time to determine he responsibility of the accident, and the luthorities are as silent as oysters on the abject until the matter is thoroughly investigated. Since writing the nbove Oapt. Devries is n receipt of a telegram from the father of he boy, at Giarltgbtirg, asking him to hold he bod v for him. The body was interred >y the Messrs.

' DOS* PIATT Talks to nn "Intelligencer" Hun About ike Ohio stntn*?Foster will be the Host Uovernor of Oblo-DemoorncT "Organised r*B0r*nee." A reporter ol this piper met Dona Piatt at the McLure House last night, and having bfeen Invited np to Ms room, vent, and while there the following conversation on the Ohio political situation took pMce. The Colonel hss been spending the summer at his Mac-a-cheek (arm and recently hoi been canvassing certain sections in the interest ol his brother, the "National" 'candidate lor Governor. lie spoke st Hellairs Saturday night and spent yesterday In this city. During the day many ot oar citizens called on him and were entertain ed by his unique manner of talking anil original way ol disposing of things: "What Is the situation In Ohio?" "There, my Christian friend, you get me where I am weak. Anxious to find out myself, 1 asked my friend Robinson, Chairman of the Republican Committee at Columbus, and he told mo, In a very loud voice, that they would carry Ohio for Charloy Foster by about 40,000 majority; but privately he asked, In a confidential manner, 'what I thought of li,' and I discovered that Robinson, although one of the bravest men 1 ever knew, and with whom 1 served in the late struggle, wss in a 'funk.' 1 then went to Frank McKInney, who is also a personal friend, and asked thesame question, and he responded in a fine voice 'that Kwlng would carry the State by not less than 35,000 and maybe 40.000 majority; but he asked me to tako a drink, aud I called for a champagne cocktail, as that la all we Nationals, will get out of Tilden's 'bar'l,' and while supping the champagne I discovered that he also wanted my opinion, and that he was in about as much of a 'funk' as Robinson; and so you see, my Christian friend, that I am totally in the dark as to the results." "How did you corao to be in Ohio, or how do you explain your presence there at this time?" "So far as that is concerned, 1 go to Ohio every summer, for society and a milk diet. When Congress adjourns all the agreeable people leave Wsshlnnton. and sinco the Board uf Health has prohibted hoga wandering around the streeta there ia really no aummeraociety in Waahington. There are too few people left to divide the mioama in the Kldwell bottoms. I have a little farm In the Maoa-Cheek valley?the place where God located the Garden of Eden and there I live. X only stay in Washington." How did you get into this oampaign?" "I have been of the National persuasion for Borao years past.but have taken no active part init, and would not now on account of my delicate condition of health, but the Greenbacks nominated my brother for Governor, and I felt toward him at Frank Pierce did to-hia brother Senator, when the Senator fell ofT the Goose Greek bridge one night, and wanted to know if Frank wasn't going to help him out?. Frank said, 'That he couldn't help him out, but be would come in and stay with nun, WHICH tradition Bay8 he did. Joking aside, however, I believe tba only question that will distress the political world for some time to come, is that which make, up the financial issue. Indeed tile question ol capital and labor is now vexing tlio civilixed world, and on tills issun the "Nationals" are right 1 was born in the Democratic party; rocked in a hickory sugar troqgh, and hurrahed (or Jaokson as soon as I was set on end, and, of course, my education and training were in the Bentonian School ol hard money, free trade aud something worse if we could1 imagine it Mlrabeau or some other distinguished Bohemian has said,'that to be always right in wu life must be content to be taught many things by people who know less aliout them than we do," Living on my Ohio farm I learned some things about finances that quite astonished me. 1 discovered that a farmer, the man whoso pursuit is the great underlving Btratum of our solid prosperity took his crops to market once a year. During the year he was purchasing of merchants ana mechanics, all that his farm and family needed. These things were charged against him,' and when he sold hfs crops they were paid off. His profit was almost entirely in the increased value'bf hialand. The effect o[ a panic is to destroy this system ol trust or credit, aa it is termed, and wben the crash came there was a frantic effort to do a cash business. The merchant told the farmer that he must have money lor his goods, for monoy was demanded in New York of him, and tho poor farmer who never had any money except his Sunday "nickel,"wasmost terribly distressed. The result of all this waa a money famine and just at that moment our blessed government that had let the currency take care of itself, and only provided gold for the bondholder, concluded to resume through contraction, which took out of circulation the little money we had, the land was covered with ruins; they bled the sick man and thev nnropri and unmi. ted bim and said they were getting him down to hard pan. I made the discovery that while coin is the measure of value, it is bo through the very quality tbat prevents its use as a circulating medium, and that is its scarcity. Every commercial people on the lace of the earth has been iorced to the u?e of paper forthat purpose, and so I abandoned my Bentonian theories and joined the Greenbackers." "what is your opinion of Foster and Ewlng relatively?" "These two gentlemen occupy a singular position in reference to each other, but more especially in reference to their parties. Foster, who had abandoned the bloody Bhirt openly at Washington, was nominated to bead off the Grant movement. He was to represent the great success of 'John the Financier,' ana to win & victory on the sucoess of resumption. Ewlng, on the other hand, was nominated partly by accident and partly with the design to kill John G. Thompson, or in other words, to bury Thurman. It was a Tilden movoment if there was design in it at all, but Governor Bishop, who had been elected to theastonlshmentof everybody on a platform made op of peanuts predestination, (brew lb? weight of hie person tor Ewiug against Kice. Foster, however, gets along better with bis party than Ewing does with the Democracy. Republicanism?the organized dishonesty of the land?contracted its forces better than Democracy, which is the organised lgnoranoe of the land. Jn Ewing the sheep don't recognise the voice of the shepherd. Hence there has been some contusion, and it was not until Tilden tapped his barrel that, we hail a ohapge of heart and a* revival. They are all a-whooping now, and I suppose will poll all the vote except the Jews, the Germans, the National bankers and the business men. These last assert that they have a nibble at a 'boom.' and they don't want to be disturbed by Tom's financial ideas. They say they don't understand them, and I don't believe Tom doee. The Republicans, on the other hand, bavo verv clear ideas on Hint subject, which consist in grabbing all they can and holding on to all they can grab." "Who wlllbe elected do.yon tlilnk?" "I can only guess,not sufficiently strong to risk any money on it. I believe that Charley poster will be Ohio's next Governor. lie is one ol the best organisers in the country;he is personally very popular, has more magnetism than any other man In onr State, and has the love of his friends and the respect of his enemies. Through all this fierce campaign in Ohio, not a breath, not a word has been blown or uttered affecting,his private character or standing as a good citizen, and, I come tothinkol it, omittingSam (Jarey, this has been the most decently oondnoted campaign I ever knew, and the most vigorous. Where Ewlng Is* gentleman also." "Where have yon spoken?" 'Q have made one speech, but I have delivered that at different places. Before the next campaign I intend to get up anOUfer." "Havo you any ulterior design in your Greenback movements?" Weil, yes, confidentially.
