devotion to Use public interest
his sound views upon tlie tariff
which if adopted will enlarge the

State txeket next year
TIIE PARTY OP PLAIN PEOPLE-
The Democratic party is the
party of the plain people Its
mission is to govern for the gener
al welfare Its corner stone is
that the humblest citizen is -en
titled to the same protection as
the most exalted It therefore
wants all the plain people with
out regard to race or color to en
dure for over that it may pre
serve free government and that
it may strike down every monop
oly or other powerful engine of
despotism and oppression Jsvans

TERRIBLE LOSS OP LIFE-
A shocking railroad disaster
occurred near Wilkesbarre Penn
last Wednesday night in which
the loss of life was something ter
rible to think upon and still more
terrible to the traveling public
who so constantly place their
lives in the hands of the railroad
employees Fifty seven human
souls were hurried from gay scenes
and joyous festivities into eternity
and as many more were injured
The almost reckless carelessness
of some railroad employes is hor
rifying and when we read of
accidents like this our hearts go
oet in pity to the afflicted fami
lies while we feel condemnation
for the criminal carelessness of
somebody At Hazelton 20000
people had assembled to do honor
to tlie memory of the temperance
apostle Father Theobold Mat
tliew
Tlie Associated Press dispatch
gives this description of tlie scene
The testivities of the day are
ended The multitude joyous with
the grandeur and success of the
occasion are boarding the trains
for the journey homeward There
is no thought of danger for they
think not of the sad fate that
awaits many of them the im
pending disaster that ere three
iiours shall have passed will send
a thrill of terror from the Lehigh
to the Lackawanna shrouding the
three valleys in a cloud of gloom
and making hundreds of happy
Itomes the abodes of untold agony
Two sections cams through safely
The third is nearing home The
fourth composed of Jersey Cen
tral cars and freighted mostly
with Lackawanna people stops at
Mud Run a station between Penn
Haven Junction and White
Haven for water The fifth is
following close behind Passen
gers on it watch the lights of the
one ahead as they fly through tlie
darkness for a long way and as
they finally see the third section
standing a little way ahead at the
Run they wonder why their train
does not slacken its speed As it
dasiies along at full speed fireman
Hugh Gallagher at the fourth
directs the attention of his en
gineer Harry Cook to the signal
lantern of the third and jumps
from the cab The engineer fol
lows him An instant later the
crash comes
Tlie fretting fuming puffing en
gine ploughs its heated body
through nearly the entire length
of rear car scalding jamming and
killing the unfortunate occupants
This car is jammed into the next
ahead ot it and that into the
third the three cars being a total
wreck The lights are extinguish
ed and darkness adds terror to
the scene The shrieks of the
injured and groaii6 of the dying
are heard on every side and the
strongest liearts quail

Our worthy representative in
Congress Hon Jas B McCreary
is moving right along in his earn
est active canvass of this district
He has been a most faithful pains
taking and honest representative
of his district and it is believed
that he will have an increased
majority this year We have re
liable information from a gentle
man of high standing of this city
whose business not long since
made a tour of this district neces
sary that the entire district is all
right and that Democracy is far
in the lead and every thing in
harmony We quote a few of the
notices complimentary to Mr
McCreary
The various Democratic Clubs of
Jessamine are expected to be oil hand

ever be called to occupy that elmir

Oar Owrt lkouse was filled to over
flewlMg to day to listen to Hon James
B McCreary wito epoke for nearly
two hours His argument was made
so plain that the tariff ebouM be re
duced thst the humblest citfoen in
Iba land could understand Every one
was deMgted witlt his great speech and
afterwards gave him a perfect ovation
He iiad oue of the most appreciative
audience ever assembled in Shelby

We liojte the Demnreats of Boyle
will turn out en wtoMe on next Mon
day and extend to Gov McCreary a
hearty reeepttou He comes to us to
give an aeoount of bis work as our Rep
resentative and give 1 reason fur the
fulfil llwt h fit him as a Democrat of
the oM school He has estabMehed a
reputation in Congress that Is alike
creditable to himself and the dbtrlet
and the ooustitueucy whom he has so
faithfully served should give him
words of cheer and encouragement to
continue until the great principle of
tariff reform Is engrafted In our
economic system This is the only
real issue iu this campaign nnd we
are gratified to state that the great
advance tiiat has been made within a
year is largely due to the earnest and
persistent work of our Representative
who has stood shoulder to shoulder
with the President aud the tariff re
formers of the House His triumphant
re election will be an endorsement to
whioli he is farely entitled Danville
Advocate
Tlie Impression has gone abroad that
Gov MeCreary will be elected without
much opposition and it is not a matter
ofsupteme importance to get out the
full vote At the last Gubernatorial
race the same idea prevailed and if
Mr Wm O Bradley had been running
for Congress instead of Governor he
would have been elected for the dis
trict gave him a very baudsomo ma
jority Now tills fact should arouse
our friends to the necessity of organ
izing very thoroughly to poll the Dem
ocratic vole of tlie district We urge
upon every Democrat to be prepared to
do his duly lo his party and that duty
oan only be fully discharged by casting
his own ballot aud doing all that he
can to see that his lukewarm neighbor
follows his good example Danville
Advocate
The Danville Advocate of yes
terday gives a full account of Mr
McCrearys speech in Danville
It says yiat he literally slaughter
ed Nooe and Ewell
In concluding Gov MeCreary said
that of the five most important bills
passed by this Congress he had the
honor lo have presented four of them
Mr Ewell wanted to enter iuto a con
tract to use 110 money or whisky in
tlie election and the Governor told
him he oouid easily heat him w Itliout
using either A voice of an old farm
er in the audience said We will
elect you withauc a cent And we
think he is correct judging from the
enthusiasm of his hearers
WATEIMY0KKS
As one of the charter members of
Water Works Cnmpauy aud Secretary
of bauie I ask to wiy just a few words
to the citizens of Richmond through
your valuable paper It seems as
though there is a very great misuuder
stauding among tlie citizens as to the
30000 of stock they are asked to take
111 this enterprise Pint of all I wish
to make lhkJ9iatemeutBefure any such
proposition was ever mude public to
the city jour honorable Council bad
the Companys charter for at least six
weeks read re read aud digested it
Then this same body of gentlemen rep
leeeutiug the citys interest framed to
their entire satisfaction the proposition
that is now before you They voted
iin it as a unit with the exception of
one member who was compelled to be
absent on account of sickness iu his
family This member however had
been preteut at all preceding meet
ings aud at the framing of the proposi
tion aud every thing he asked for was
included in it
The Couipau a object has been is
now to Irtish the enterprise Why if
we begin operation at once we cannot
expect to more than complete it before
-111 the distance will be iieard the
moaning of the coming train on the
Louisville Southern bearing to us men
women and children worn aud feary
from travel aud sutleriug for water to
diiuk to say nothing of the amount
required for domestic use When you
increase tlie population of a city from
oue to two tboustmd where in a dry
time i ou can not buy uor beg a bucket
of Gods beverage to drink how can
you expect to hold them ns cilizeus un
lets jou are prepared to furuish this
necessary Why at this very moment
I can sight you to a man 011 First
Street who is pa ing a man daily to
almost steal water for him
Now as to the amount of private
stock taken in the enterprise we have
30000 worth already taken and are
etlll open to any citizen who chooses to
subscribe We earnestly solicit and
are very anxious to have every dollars
worth of stock taken that it requires to
complete the works We could only
guarantee that amount that we knew
would be taken aud paid for when
issued We could not give the public
any definite answer as to the amount
the works would have to be mortgaged
Iu case there was no more stock taken
until after she received bids ou plans
aud specifications that had been sent
outThese were received aud opened 011
Saturday last October 13th Mr M
Philbin of Chicago III the builder of
Lexington water works being the low
est bidder 7614144 was his estimate
Now the Company is able to say and
will bind themselves to not mortgage
tlie works for oue cent moreover and
above the valued subscription to tlie
enterprise than they really cost or if
the citizens prefer will not issue one
dollars more worth of stook than it
really takes to construct them unless
they tlie City Council and Compauy
think it best for the prosperity of the
enterprise to issue tlie full am ount of
stock 100000 and then the city is to
have her prorata iu same I merely
submit this to the public because I
think it due to the charter members
of this Company that they be properly
understood in the matter
