PntT.ADRLnifA, Pa., Sept. I).—Tho private car
of Prcsldopt Huberts, of tbo Pennsylvania Rail*
road, will lenvo horoat 1:15 a.m. tomorrow for
Washington, and It Is expected will bo used for
tho removal of President Garfield from tbo
Capital to Long Rraoeb. This car Is known as
No. 120. It was built years ago at tho Altoona
shops of tho Pennsylvania Railroad for Col.
Bcott’s private use. After ho became nu Invalid
It was used for many years by President Scott
In bis long Journeys through tho South and
West, and has carried In turn nearly all tbo dis
tinguished guests the Pennsylvania Railroad
management bavo entertained. Although long
In service, It remains ono of tbo finest pieces of
workmanship tho skilled mechanics at Altoona
have aver produced. Specialists wore employed
on the springs, which wore made of
THR FINEST STEEL,
and arc light in number, or twice ns many ns
tho now Enstlnßo passenger conches have.
There are twelve wheels Instead of eight* and In
the running movement of tho coach thoro Is
scarcely any perceptible Jar, owing In a measure
to tbo extraordinary stability of Its construc
tion. Tho sides arc Mood red In color, like most
of (he Pennsylvania Railway conches, and abso
lutely without ornament, oven tho usual gold
work being conspicuous by Its absence—tbo
stylo of decoration In which Col. Scott’s simple
tastes are Instantly recognized. Tho running
work of tbo car is brown. Tbo wheels are like
tboso used under tbo Pullman pnlaco cars, nud
are painted n bright green. Unlike tho other
stock of tho railroad. No. 120 Is notlcoablo on ac
count of Its unusual length, sixty-three foot
having been found none too long for tho build
ers’ notions of wbat a private botcl-cat should
bo.
INSIDE ,
It has a drawing-room, private bedroom,'and
bath, dining-room largo enough for ten poisons
to sit nt tbo big mahogany table at tho' same
moment, and a kitchen furnished In a way that
would satisfy the most exacting cook. Tho
platform at ono end of tbo oar is five feet wldo
and Inclosed by an Iron railing, with neats for
those who ohooso to sit In the shelter of tho
low side windows, with tbo scculo panorama
gliding away in tbo wako of tbo train—for tho
Presidents carls always tbo rear ono—white sig
nals are made with tbo onglnoar by means of an
clcotrlo belt. Tho drawing-room of tho ear re
sembles tho coxy cabin of a yacht designed for
Aslan sailing. There orotoooks and writing
desks, as well as card,tables, while over tho
bookcase a small French clock ticks sharply,
even when tho car Is Idle.
THE WOODWORK OF THE INTERIOR
Is black walnut, and tho furnishing something
after tbo models of tho Pullman cars. There
are soft rugs on tbo floor and cosy chairs near
tho walls. Tbo drawing-room Is lighted by
eight windows, and at night by a middle cluster
of four gas-lumps overhead, with as many more
on tho side. Tho rigid simplicity of tbo exterior
has not boon carried out hero, for tbo drawing
room is ornamented by solid mahogony and fin
ished In sliver and gold. A door on one band
loads to tho private, room of President Roberts
and a smaller apartment with sufficient room
for a narrow bedstead, not a bunk, which faces
two windows In tbo oppoalt wall, while a second
door loads to tho bath. From thoopposltsldo of
tho drawing-room a narrow passageway toads to
tbo dining-room, which is twonty-Uvo foot long
and about ten wldo, or tbo full width of the car.
ABOVE TUB CARPET
-the finishing is partly In cherry, while tho di
vans, extending parallel with tbo dining-tabic,
are upholstered In golden plush. There are four
unfolding beds overhead, constructed on too
Pullman pattern, and which buvo boon used by
many Directors of tbo Pennsylvania Hallway
and friends of Col. Scott wbo used to accom
pany blm on hla extended tours, in tho dining
room, as In all tbo otbor apartments of tho car,
there aro ventilators, which moyboojHmod in
tho opposit direction from which tho car Is mov
ing, thus Insuring plenty of pure air without
causing a currant through tho car, while tho
fine wire sieve netting covering tbo ventilators
effectually guards against Hying cinders and
dust. A broad table, wltn square corners,
stands In tho middle of tho dining-room, wnilo
on either side, throwing back tho silk curtains.
a view is bad of
THE SCENERY WITHOUT.
Two folding doors opening tram tho dining
room load to tho kltohon, which Is almost ns
large. It uoutolus a pantry, a largo kltohon
range with an oven overhead, a broad table,
wloo-cpouir, and a smaller closet for dlsnwosh
ingand otbor culinary operations. All that Is
visible to the eye lu tbo finishing of tbe kltohon
Is solid wood, like tbo rest of tho car, while tbo
metallic work Is of polished brass, after tbo
stylo of cplslno or modern yachts. De
void os tho car is of cumbrous furniture
or unnecessary weight of any kind. It
Is said to bo heavier than any of (ho other
coaches belonging to tho company. No. 120 was
mado tho roooptlon car of Col. Scott not long
after tbo War, or, in other words, soon after tbo
Prlnco of Wales became the guest of the Penn
sylvania Railroad on bis extended Journey
tnrongb tho South and West from Now York.
Tho Grand Duko Alexis. Prlnco Arthur, Prcsl-
President llnyos, and members of
nil tbo Cabinets sinoo IffK have traveled lu It.
Tho oar was placed at tho disposal of President
Garfield on his notable journey from Mentor to
tpo Capital before tho Inauguration, and It
brought ox-Prcskloul Hayes away from Wash
ington after that event.
COL. SCOTT’S TRIPS IN THU CAR
used to extend half wav to tbo Pacific Coast, or
to tbo Texas Sc Pucfllo lines in Texas. Tbo
refrigerator In tbo kitchen bos ample space for
a vJjmthfe provisions if need be. Since Presl-
election perhaps his most notable
been the Duke of Sutherland's
Party of English railway men and members of
Parliament why traveled over tbo Western lines
flyo months ago. Ono of tbo olllcors
of, tbo Pennsylvania Rood, who was
questioned by a press reporter yester
day, said that, so far as ho knew,
no orders bad boon given by President Roberts
lit regard to tbo car. It was ut West Phila
delphia, however, and could bo ready under Mr.
Roberts' order In half an hour if tbo President’s
phjjßloluns decided to remove him. as they hoped
"It ibo President is removed by railroad,
wfiat speed will bo tbo most comfortable tor
him?"

FIRED ON THE TROOPS,
and a largo number of White Mountain Indians,
who were In ambush In another place, rose up
and fired at tbo troops, also showing clearly that
thoro was a previous understanding between tho
scouts and tho other Indians. It appears that
Col. Carr became bewildered after tho
scouts turned against him. The scouts and
White Mountain Indians, who now greatly
outnumbered tho surviving troops, advanced to
n hand fight, and soon completed the work they
already had far underway. As far ns known,
not a single man escaped. These reports are
all from friendly Indians, but tho commanding
officers at Cmmw Thomas and Grrtnt, who know
many of the Indians, place Implicit confidence
In them. A number of Indians who visited tho
field of tint tic camo through today, and tell about
tho same story, which goes to strengthen tho re

ber of Indians have or will Join tho outbreak
than at first thought,

a Chief of much sense and good Judgment,
who thoroughly understands tho strength of tho
whites, has gone an tho warpath against his wilt,

prove sufilclcnt to cupo with tbo Indians and
afford any adequate protection to tho settle

ago a baud of White Mountain Indians under a
Chief named Potonlc, who lived thirty miles
north of Camp Apache, killed a Chief named
Diablo, of the same tribe, on Ban Carlos Reser

band, accompanied by Agency police, started to
Camp Apache to avenge bis death. They found

that it shall not bo embarrassed by tbo two

another. In other Words, wo dcsiro to mako tbo

Inquiry whether there would bo disadvantages
encountered from the making of silver a

Tbo only criticism has been that it wns Impossi

of tbo principal commercial nations that It is

that tho concerted action of tho notions will se

tho fooling was cherished with a greater or less
confidence on thojrpurt that tho United Btutps

There was an impression at tho outset aC tho

Wo also thought it would be felt and under

dressmakers covered with embroidery and
luce runies, and combined with every Imag
inable color. A bit ot red ribbon on a bluo
dress, or blue ribbon on a red dross, give
sometimes a happy touch of color; but
un overdress of blue veiling mid a turkey-red
skirt are glaring and angry masses Umt few
eyes cun look on. Hardly any costume
