E. C. Lamed, 04 Dearborn street, Boom 13. SOUTH SIDE STREET-RAILWAY. Jo the J-Aiitor of the Chicago Wbituc, Biu: Wo presume uo one will deny that, when valuable rights and privileges are relinquished by the public iu favor of private individuals or corporations, tho public has the right to expect aud demand iu return a full moasuio of re muneration therefor. If tho privilege so grant ed iu a right of way through a public street iu order to establish a railw&y-tiack thereon, the public has an unquestionable right to demand that those who travel ou that railway shall have the best accommodations iu traveling that tho nature of the cose will admit of. Tho right is clearly a mutual one, aud the road is to bo run, not iu tho interests of tiio Company merely, but for the advantage ami good of tho public as well. Tho measure «f rights and equity attaching to either party depends ou cir cumstances. From roads ou which there is a gloat amount of prolitable travel, it is reasona ble to demand a higher standard of convenience and tv bettor accommodation than is expected from rundu whore tho running espouses are equally an groat, while the prollls are loss. Wo are led to speak of this in connection with (he South bldo City Hallway Company, and the management of its affairs. We are aware that thocuut of maintaining such & lino, with its sev eral brunches and connections, is expensive; that "the perplexity attending the control of its business matters must be groat, and that it would bo quite impossible to arrange all its raoAemouta in a way to moot the appro bation of tho entire community, but wo are as fully convinced that tho profits accruing to its treasury are so remunerative that few of its stockholders can bo found desirous of dispos ing of their shares iu order to rid themselves of its burdens. In viow of what has been said, wo venture tho opinion that that there is not one imm in the City of Chicago, outside of the list of stock holders in tins institution, who will not pro nounce the course adopted by it in introducing on its linos tho ono-horso, or ** bob-tall cars, ” as they are called, an imposition on tho public, and an infringement of rights that wore intended to he secured to our citizens when Us charier was granted. It is not necessary to enumerate tho evils and annoyances incident to this system. Noouo who has been unfortunate enough xo Lo obliged to use tins mode of uonvoyanco can fail to appreciate tho truth of what wo say. It is positively refreshing to rido Iu tho cars of tlio Madison and Clark street Hues after under going the nuisance of this ono-horso system. By the latter method, passengers are crowded in a short and narrow oar until they are nearly suf focated, and are obliged cither to clhow their way through tho oiowu to the driver’s window to pay their fare, or else they must subject some other passenger lo tho mcovonlenco of doing the work for them, making the change with one hand And hanging by tho strap with the nlUor. And, wo ask, is it just to tho public tn compel them to endure such j iiTioyanccx on lines r,» Urm-jilly patronized ? Is H juul to the .aaioQu. /l; f,’Lillies (who are often obliged to rldo la those oars in the evening) to the erils arising from rude and drunken rowdies, who take advantage of pas sengers in a car unprotected by a conductor ? No driver should bo expected, or requited, at one and the same time, to give his attention to hie horses, guard his car from collision. watch for passengers ot thn crossings, collect faros, make change, keep order in his car, and attend to signals for stoppages. Those thing!) are, for the most part, the duty of a conductor, and should bo performed only by tbo conductor, and It Is nothing moro nor loss than a gross imposition upon tho public for this Company to introduce this niggardly system of making tho passenger perform the duty of the conductor In order to save his wages to enrich by so much the corporation. It is so palpably unjust that it has long boon a matter of astonishment to us to witness witn what pa tience and kindly forbearance tho public has borne the inlllotlon of such a gross imposition. There Is no more reason why this Company should claim such immunities at tho expense of its patrons, than that the Michigan Central should dispense with its conductors, and oblige travelers to go through tho tram to hunt up tho engineer on tho lo comotive, in ordor to hand him tbo faro. Such a course would doubtless savo money to tbo stockholders, but wo fancy tho howl of in dignation that would salute their ears from an outraged public would soon constrain thorn to adopt tho old and hotter method. In behalf, thou, of tho public interests and of common Justice wo dnsirfr to call tho attention of the Company tu this tmioh-uoodod reform. Give ns what was guaranteed to us whoa tho road was established, namely, a safe, comfortable, and convenient mode of conveyance ; for, rest as sured. the patience of (he pouplo or Chicago, tbnuuh very forbearing, is by no mo ami inex haustible. Citizen. Chicago, Oct. 38, 1874. THE CITY TELEGRAPH. To the Editor of The Chicago tribune 8m: Whon tho city telegraph wont Into operation, groat expectations wero bad of its usefulness and convenience. It was hoped that messages could bo transmitted mid answered in such brief time as to bo of tho greatest con venience to business men. To somo extent thoso expectations were well founded: hut in many instances wa havo been disap pointed- As now constituted, our local telegraph docs not come up to the needs of tlio business community. They are not fust enough to satisfy the demands of sueh a fast city os Chicago, but they might answer for Bt. Louis or Milwaukee. I wish to givo nil illualiation of thoir failure in a single instance, which is ouo of many which 1 have witnessed. 1 had occitdon to telegraph to a patient from my office on Twenty-second street to 002 West Van Baron utroou I'Jio iuo?uago was sent at 1:30 p. m., and au answer requested before 3 p. ra. I aftotwards ascertained that the message was not delivered at ho nomination till 3 p. in., and, on asking an explanation at the Twonty socond Htrooi ollice, 1 was informed that tho mcssftgo had to go to the central office, down town, and thence be transmitted to tho West Hide office. it seemu that " rud-tuno ” and " circumlocution" obtains in telegraphing as in almost everything else. Audit took one hour and a half to transmit a message to tho West Bide I It should have been delivered in ten minutes, and and au answer returned and de livered in twenty minutes more, or one-half hour in all. 1 could have sent a boy there by stroot-cnr and return in loss than on hour and a half I And these city telegraph companies complain that they are not smticicntly appreciated and patron ized I They never will ho until they have bettor facilities for the transmission ol important messages. There is a gonoiul complaint on this score among business men, ami the sooner those local companies begin to meet tho demands of tbo people, tho bouer for their future prospects. CiiiuAUC, Oct. 28, 1871. E. M. H. GENERAL NEWS. Louise CblosA, a fittlo girl of 9 years, is miss ing from her home, No. 017 Buttortlcld street. Tho Town Clerk of South Chicago cortifloa to Qou.

That was au amusing i-couo in a crowded Cot tage Grove avonuo car the other day, when a young colored lady of •18or 2U colored with a largo dry-goods bundle. A young gentleman gave her a sent, and, thinking that she would suvo room, sho placed the bundle on tho scut and placed her worthy self noon it. When sho wauled to got out. she got up and rang tho bull. A gentleman, not thinking that she would sit down again before getting out, placed her bundle on the floor and took her scat. Tho lady immediately sat down uu tho gentleman's lap, of cor.rso thinking that sho was sitting on her bundle. Tho guutleniau blushed to tho napo of his nook; still ho enjoyed it, and did net Hko to say anything to the lady. Tho other passengers, both ladiua and gentle men, hid their faces in thoir bauds to keep them from laughing too loud. Tim girl did not notice her mistake until she got up and wanted to take her bundle, but, with groat coolness and equal politeness, tho gentleman handed her her bun dle, aud sho said, “ 1 thauk you, sir."

Many efforts bavo already boon made by various competing lines to break up this monopoly, but all wore in vain. The pool was so strong that nothing but an extraordinary occurrence could break it up. A dilllculty has now arisen between two of tbo pooling Hues—the Chicago, Burlington »t Quincy and tbo Chicago & North western—which may dually result in the break ing up of the combination. A regular war has begun between those two roads over the con nections at Clinton, la., in which the Chicago, Clinton Dubuque Boud is the main bone oi contention. It is known that Iho Chicago, Bur lington & Quincy has not only decided to build a pontoon bridge at Clinton, but lias let the contract for it to bo finished within ninety days. The Chicago. Burlington Ac Quincy lately submitted these propositions to tho Northwestern, uud asked for permission to cross tho railroad bridge already constructed, or, in case this permission was not granted, to allow tho use of tho island in operat ing tile pontoon bridge as part of the roadway, this island being owned bv the bridge company; or to lease, or grant tho use of tbo Midland Boad, also controlled by the Northwestern for 8 miics this side of Ly.mH, us now used by tho Chicago, Clinton & Dubuque. Last Saturday tho Northwestern sent in an answer refusing all throe of tho propositions, and also refusing any and all other propositions tho Chicago, Burlington A Quincy had to mako. Tho use of tho bridge was expected to bo re fused. But tho refusal to give, soil, or lease tho use of tho island will probably postpone tho building of tho pontoon bridge for sumo time, uud perhaps for nu indefinite por.ocl. Nor will tho Chicago Noil! .estoru allow the Chicago. Burlington «s Quincy to use the Midland track at all. The Chicago, Clinton & Dubuque is graded and nearly ready for the iron, alongside of tbo Midland as far us Lyons; but from that point, to Clinton no work is done, uud tho Northwestern proposes that nono shall bo. They aro busy putting in side-tracks and switches Just whore tho Chicago, Clinton & Dubuquo will bavo to run, and they are proparing ait tho obstacles possible to tho competing road under tho management of tho Chicago, Burlington A Quincy. It is probable that tho Chicago, Burlington & Quincy and tho Chicago, Clinton & Diymquo will insist upon putting their road into Oiiutim and across tho nvor. But tho Northwestern has power to delay thoir projects for a long timo. It will undoubtedly mako a long and bitter war, and will destroy tho friendly feelings heretofore existing between those two lines. HAUL) ON THU BCALI'KUfI. The Saratoga agreement hub at least been the canneof one desirable reform. Tho eystom of paying ootmninHiona for tho stile of tickets has finally been abolished by all tho roads,— oven those not belonging to tho Saratoga combina tion. At tho mooting hold yesterday at tho Grand Foculu Hotel, the managers present signed tho following agreement, which is Himihir to the ouo signed at Now York by tho roads be longing to tho combination: The undersigned, in behalf of the several roads they represent, uenmy agree to discontinue tho pay ment of commissions on tickets from and after Nov. 1,1871; and will lutnict mul require their agents not to pay or receive any commission, draw-buck, rebate, or other consideration for (he sale of tickets; uud fur ther agree that all tickets in the hands of ‘'outside” agents shall bo withdrawn from sale on and after Nov. 1, 1874.

It remains now to bo seen wbothor tlio man agers of these roads wo in earnout, and will en force the rule. Similar agroomenta in regard to this matter have heretofore been passed, but always broken. It is a well-known fact that many of the General Ticket Agents are strongly opposed to this reform, and no utoiio will bo let t unturned by them to break it up If possible. All that ia necouuary to bo done to muko it a suc cess is for the General Managers to issuo orders that no money shall bo paid by the Treasurer for such purpose, it is not very likely that in that case the General Ticket Agents will pay thu money out of their pockets. The reform is an excellent one, and should bo strictly enforced. TUB OUIOAOO * SOUTH ATLANTIC, Work on the Chicago A Bouth Atiantlo Rail road is progressing very lupidly.

The Influence of HI inti Over flintier— A IVil'e PruKorvud from Violence by a Ueiirldduu SBuNbumi—Kolnjpwc and Sudden lloatli* Mimaut Valley, N. Y. (Oct. 26), Corretpondenee of the Acte i'ork Ueruul, On Saturday last an itiuoraub peddler entered the house of Jamoe Tolin, llviug near this place, and proceeded to display uis wares to Mrs. Toliu, despite her assertions that she did not wish to buy anything. Mr. Toliu was con lined to his bod, and had been so cammed for many years, being so crippled with rheumatism that it hud been Tong impossible for him to leave his bed unless carried from it. After showing bis goods, and Mrs. Tohu not buying ouylbing, the peddler commenced a conversation, iu the course of which ho learned the helpless condition of Mr. Toliu. Finally ho made on ineuUiug proposal to Airs. Tolin, and she indignantly ordered him to leave the house. Instead he approached her and seized hold of her, saying, with an oath, that she was ic his power, as her husband was as good as dead. Mrs. Toliu, being a delicate woman, run scream ing luto another room. Thu peddler followed her, and, before sho could escape by the door, caught her again. A desperate struggle ensued between them, and Mrs. Toliu was thrown violently to the Uoor by the powerful villain. Mr. Toliu hud been all the time a witness of the struggle, lying powerless in his bod. At tbo sound of his wife falling on tbo door, however, mid her frantic shrieks for aid, he seemed to be endowed 1 with supernatural power. Under tbo mdueuoo of that power ho sprang from the bed ho had been unable to leave for years. Seizing a heavy crutch that stood near tno bed, he rushed into the room whore the struggle was going on. Airs. Toliu bad succeeded in regaining her foot, but tbo pedulor had grasped her around the waist, and was endeavor ing again to throw her. As Mr. Toliu entered Hie room, the singular spectacle of a bedridden cripple hastening to the defense of his wife seemed to paralyze the scoundrel, and he stood staring aa if in a trance at the approach of tno husband. Mr. Toliu, nerved dj unnatural strength, brought the crutch down over the head of the podd or, and felled him like an ox to the lloor. The next instant the excitement and superhuman effort chut had supported the hus band loft him. With a shrink, that told of the intense agony of the relapse, he clasped his hum! to his forehead, and dioppod to the lloor, ami almost instantly expired. All's. Toliu succeeded in getting the body of her husband back iu the bod ami thou started for assistance. She was obliged to go over a mile before she was able to obtain any. When she returned with several neighbors the peddler wus gone, lie had recovered conuoiommosa raid Aod, leaving bis puck hr the house. When the news of the attempted outrage and the tragic (loath of Mr. Tulin spread throughout thu neigh borhood, the must intuuse excitement prevailed, Squads of men started in every direction, smirch ing for the peddler, but us yet ha lias not been found. In the present fueling, if he falls Into the hands of the populace, that he will bo lynched there is not the idightoat doubt. A InOUBLEbOME DYKE.
