each other in the face with some distrust

"What injury might such au unwise pul>
. lication as this do?
OIÏC», WHKN I WAS A CHILD,
I was close to a little battle by a flowing
river. A thousand men encamped were
1 attacked by twice their number. The
Lieateuant-Colonel of the attacked regi
ment stopped not on the order of his
going but at the first shot fled
in wild trigbt and did not
stop till he reached a town
a dozen miles away is another State, wheie
. the wings of his imagination caused him to
tell the story that his entire regiment was
1 cut to pieces, taken prisoners, or driven
' into the river and drowned but the Colo
nel. A man with a heurt ot a hero, the
I courage of a lion, the discretiong of a Wel
lington, and the magnetism of a Bonaparte,
out* who had sine lied powder in the Mexi
can war, stepped before his men and rallied
I them—got them to lighting—and when the
shot from the enemy's guns fell at his feet,
kicked it contemptuously, and finally led
a charge that put the foe to ignomiuious
flight.
AN APPEAL.
"Who shall say what a single false idea
may do to demoralise a noble baud of men.
I hope that, if in this case there is any
danger of a demoralization, the public
etlort I am making may instill new
courage iuto a heroic band of men and start
a movement for the consideration of the
Republicans of this assembly iu their in
dividual capacity. Here we may well
pause for a moment considering the posi
tion in which we are placed, the tension,'so
to speak, upou us all. Well may we lock
each other in the face and iu view of all
these circumstances, remembering all this
uproar, hesitate. Every man may at times
doubt himself. In that olden time when
the twelve sat around the Lord and he
would speak of the betrayer, each would
usk: 'Master is it I?' But 1 undertake
to say and declare that at no time will any
Republican falter in his duty here in this
election or attempt at an election. We
are united aud will remain so. At any
time that forty-one votes will elect
a Republican or Green baek-Lal>or
candidate aud we are all present here, we
will give them. If you, brother Demo
crats, do not believe It, try us. Give us
the chance. There may be a
. POSSIBILITY OK A BOI.TKK
from our caucus. I do not believe there
is. I do not kuow who he is. I am sure
there is none, and if there is any Republi
can here who desires to contradict what I
say about our united front, I desire him
to rise iu his seat. 'There is none, no not
one.'
"Mr. President, I need not refer to the
idea that after having labored for weeks to
defeat the Democratic caucus uomiuee we
should now turn in and elect him. Elect
him, for sooth, and why? So that iu 1888
we shall not have the wealth of two Dem
ocratic candidates tor United States Seuator
and the money ot theNatioual Democratic
Executive Committee as an obstruction
which we cauuot climb. This is as though
two athletic burglars were engaged in com
bat iu my house. I separate them ou the
theory that if they murder each other they
will return iu the future and rob me of my
accumulated wealth.
IK THE DEMOCRATS WANT
to apply the soothing aud lasciuatiug razor
to each other's throats let them do it. If
they want to protract this tight over into
the next campaigu let them do so, and my
word for it the Republican party will
march ou to victory over their prostrate
forms.
"Again the Republicans are to be pun
ished by the election of a free tr:ulc Demo
crat if they don't elect the Democratic
uomiuee of the caucus. What a transpar
ent tolly. Settle your own quarrels, gen
tlemen. Why should we be punished
for uot electing a man for you? You have
the majority. It is your duty, uot ours,
to elect. Why shall we withdraw our
candidate? He is iu the lead. Besides, if
the Democratic caucus and its nominee
hate any class of people with an able
Itodied, alert, undying, uncompromising
hate it must be some people other than
ReDnblicaus.

THK HOCK ISLAND ROBBERY.
Mr«. Swart/.'* ConfeNsion Leads to Import
ant Development«.
Chicago, February 11.—Regarding tlx
alleged developments iu the Rock Islan«]
express robbery and murder case, a special
dispatch from Morris, 111., where Henrj
Schwartz is contined, says: The develop
raeuts siuce Monday, including the con
fession from Mrs. Schwartz, which, it is
said, furnishes the much-desired clew, will
lead to the arrest of two and possibly
three parties iu Chicago. If three persons
are arrested Newton Watts will lie ouc ol
them, though it is still believed that he is
inuoctnt. The names of the other two art
withheld for the present. These men art
the oues who actually committed the dou
hie crime ot murder and robbery, the
former being resorted to in orde^ to avoid
recognition as the perpetrators of the latter.
Henry Schwartz's connection with the
affair was that of accessory, and his duty
on the night of the commission was to guard
against any one entering the express car
between Joliet aud Morris.
WELL-I.AU» PLAN'S <»K THE ROHBERS.
The story, as partially revealed her«', is
to the effect that Schwartz and three
other railroad men conceived the i.lea ol
robbing the express «-ar, their intimate
knowledg«? of the messenger's habits and
the running time au«l stopping places of
the train making it tolerably safe fortheui
to engage in it. The plan contemplated
doing the work between the two points
named above, for the reason that the coal
ing sheds just west of Joliet ottered the
best place ou the road to gain admittance
to the express car without l»eini» seen by
persons uot iutereste«l in thecontemplatetl
robbery. Murder, it is said, w:w not
thought of at the time. Two men still at
large boarded the traiu iu Chicago, and
both were provided with tickets to Joliet
They occupied seit« in the forward sm«ker
and when the train stopped at the Joliet
station
ist » i 11 .M.i nr. I Kr> 1 r»*Nnc«
of getting oft' the train. They may have
done this, hut instantly boarded it again,
this time, hewever between the two ex
press care. It was Schwartz's duty to pre
vent tbis very thing, and he would doubt
leas have attende«! to it had the parties
been other than they were. They kept
quiet until after the train bad started from
the coaling sheds, but within a few min
utes after had gained access to the express
car, where they had ample time to carry
oat their plans, as the next stopping place
was twenty miles distant. What occurred
iu the car is too well known to require
repetition. The men did not leave the
train until it hegau slowing up as it ap
proached Morris, and could not have been
more than :tU0 yards away when the dis
covery of the crime was made.
DIVISION OK THE SPOILS.
Schwartz was to continue with the train,
and on his way back the next day to meet
his confederates. Circumstances almost
prevented this, but the plan was carried
tmt by Schwartz when he relie veil Brake
man Mulligan ou the trip to Chicago. It
is asserted shat the confederates did not
return to Chicago for several weeks, and in
the meantime Schwartz bad scrupulously
refrained from touching the money secured.
When the actual perjietrators of the crime
finally reached the city tha divisiou of the
spoils took place, it is said, receiving l>e
tween fli,<HH) aud $H,00U. These are the
substantial points, it is allege«!, in the
confession made by Mrs. May hew, or Mrs.
Sch waitz.
A CORROBORATIVE STATEMENT.
Following close upon this came a cor
roborative statement from Win. J. Galla
gher, who was a cell mate of Schwartz iu
the Cook county jail. It is said that Gal
lagher's revelations differ scarcely any
from those of Mrs. Schwartz. Gallagher
was seen by a reporter here last night, and
would not admit of having made auy state
ment. State's Attorney Grinnell denied
the story that "the services rendered the
State" by Gallagher—iu consideration of
which he pleaded guilty to the charge of
forging city warrants and receive«! a light
9eutenc?—had any connection with the al
leged Schwartz confession.
Detective William Pinkertou would give
no information as to the whereabounts of
Mrs. Schwartz, who disappeared so myste
riously after her retnrn from Monis. It is
believe«! that she is in the custody of the
detective».
A Hot Fight.
Philadelphia, February 11.—A very
desperate and hotly contested tight tame
off this morning in an uptown harn, near
Germantown, between Dennis F. Butler,
champion short distance swimmer ot
America, and John Reagan,of Kensington.
A purse of $öÜO was the stake and the
time of the fight was eight minutes. The
first ronnd was characterized by haid hit
ting in which Butler was badly punished
and decidedly worsted. In the second
round Bntler knocked Reagan all about
the ring. The third ronnd occupied only
two minute«. At the beginning Reagan
rushed upon Bntler and bit him on the
ana. A foul was claimed and there wa*
some confusion. The men got at it again
and then Reagan climaxed by giving Bnt
ler a fearful butt in the tare. A toul wa>
claimed by Butler's friends, and allowed,
and the reteiee gave the fight to Butler.
SKRiors consequence may ensue if yo®
neglect that cough. Dr. J. H. Mclxan'f
Tar Wine Lang Balm will speedily cure it

Karller New*.
' New Yoek, February 11.—The order c
, District Assembly 49, calling on the engi
; neers employed on the steamship aud rail
' road piers to go on strike, so far as th
I piers of the river frout is concerned, ha
I proven a dead letter. A visit to the dock
■ this morning failed to discover a single in
k stanch where the stationary engineers ha
quit work. A visit to the breweries abowe«
that all the employes were at work, an.
I the men say that they have positively rt

KBEIUHT HANDLERS SURRENDER.
Tbe freight handler« formerly employe»
on the New York and Northern railway
yesterday sent a delegate to Agent Allel
to ask him to take back the strikers with
out exception. He replied that as th
1 uuion men had struck work without giv
ing him any warning they could notcomi
' back. All the new men had been prom
1 ised a permanent situation, and were giv
iug satisfaction. lie was bound, ant
' would keep faith with them.
At the Maine Line dock all the striker
have returned, and at the Ward Line docl
only atont twenty-live of the strikers re
main out. At the Mai lory Line dock th
Superintendent will have noue of th
strikers, the men taking their placesgivini
satisfaction. At the piers of the Loii|
Island Railroad, tbe Bristol Liue, th
Baltimore and Ohio Transportation, th'
Bridgeport Daily Line aud other piers
work was proceeding tonlay as evenly a
before the strike.
The eccentric engineers
refused point blank to obey
the order of District Assmbly 49 K. of L
to strike. At the headquarters of the as
seuibly this morning the reports ot dele
gates who had been sent out to see wha
steps the engineers had taken in th
matter of obeying the order, report«
that the men refused to quit work. Th<
reports from the different breweries wen
equally discouraging and it was generali'
■ admitted that the last effort of 49 liai
proved a failure. Considerable dissatisfac
tion is felt with the executive of 41
because of the manner iu which the strik<
has been conducted. A prominent membci
of freight handlers union said to-day tha
there were two or three men holding rank
in 49 who wanted to run the whole hnsi
ness for their owu ends. A number oi
'longshoremen stood around the headquar
ters and several of them openly declare«
that they would go to work unless mort
financial aid from iheir uniofl was grantet
them. A similar opinion was expressed bi
other men and it would uot be surprisiiq
ifthere was affceneral break in the ranksa
any moment.
BRIDGE «AVE WAY
On the C. & t\ Road Near Clev«li»nd—8om<
Mir;»«'il Ii» in Kdrapei».
Cleveland, O., F"ebruitry IL—A ha<
railroad sinaahnp occurred this mornini
about 1 o'clock on the Cleveland and Pitta
burg Kailroad, just south of the city limits
A bridge gave way under an express Irain
but luckily no lives were lost. The nigh;
express on the Cleveland and Pittsburg nwu
left tbe lluion depot on time, shortly atVi
miduight, with Conductor Louis Meyen
iu charge. It was composed of the loco
motive, a baggage car, an express car, s
smoker, one passenger coach and a sleeper,
It met with disaster at Bridge No. 2. Th<
bridge was of irou, aliout sixty feet lonj,
and eighteen feet above the water. Th*
heavy rains had swollen the crcek into a
torrent, and it is supposed that the floo«l
undermined the stone abutments. AV her
tlie locomotive struck the bridge the en
gineer felt it tremble. He passed over il
lu safety, however, ami the baggage and
express caw went over the fhaky structure
without accident. The smokiug car hail
only got fairly upou the bridge when il
sagged downward, and with a sudden
shock the traiu was brought to a stand'
still.
Had the train l»een running at the regu
lar rate of speed a terrible disaster would
have occurred, but the engineer was goinp
very cautiously ou account of the flooded
condition of the country. The sudden
jerk threw the locomotive and baggage and
express cars over on their sides into the
ditch. The engineer, I). Hterrett, and
tlreman, J. H. Himes, were thrown down
the embankment aud they rolled into the
creek. The tender remained on the track.
The smokiug car caught last l>etween th«
abutments and held partly by the debri.«
of the bridge, remained midway l»etweeii
the water and the level of the creek.
Only one passenger and a hrakeman were
in it, aud they succeeded in climbing out
without injury.
Haggagemaster John Kenney was burled
violently against the side of the car when
it went over, and he was seriously cul
altout the head. It is feared that he re
ceived internal injnriex. Mr. Kenney U
au important wituess against the untaught
murderers of Detective Hulligan. Theex
press messenger was badly shaken np, and
escaped with a few cuts on the hands and
aims. The first truck of the passenger cai
went over the edge of the abutment and
rested ujsin the end of the smoker. The
tar contained fifteen people, four of whom
were ladies. Beyoud a general shaking
up and a bad scare, no damage was dont
them.
Just after the accident fire broke out
among some "waste" in one corner of the
baggage car,but it was quickly extinguish
ed. Fireman Himes was badly bruised
about the legs by his fall. A wrecking
train was only a short distance in the rear.
It was quickly put in operation and th<
tracks were clear by 9 o'clock this morn
ing. Not much damage wan done outsidt
the injury to the smoking car and bridge.

Speeial Telegram to the Rcoûter.
Washington, February 11.—The com
mission ot the present Postmaster at Graf
ton will expire to-morrow. There is said
to be eight or ten aspirants for the place,
among who art. A. J. Nuznrn, Zed Coch
ran, J. J. Gilligan and George H. Shaffer.
It is understood that the two
Senators, Messrs. Camden and
Kenna, have recommended the ap
pointment of Mr. Zed Cochran
and that Representative Wilson will rec
ommend Mr. Nuzum, although be has not
as yet tiled his recommendation with the
Postmaster General. He said to-day,
however, that he would probably recom
mend the appointment of Nuzum. It is
not known which one of the recommenda
tions, that of the Senator's or Mr. Wil
son's, will be the strougest, but it is prob
able that as Mr. Wilson represents the
district in which the town of Grafton is a
part be will probably control the appoint
ment This has been the rule established
by the President. Mr. Wilson said to-day
that he hod not tiled his recoin mendatiou
because he had been requested not to do
so until additional papers could arrive
which are expected here to-morrow.

GLADSTONE'S POLICY.

I rich Policy of the Grmud Old Mm.
Londox, February 11.—John Bright
has written another letter in criticism 01
Gladstone's Irish policy. Mr. Bright flay*
"My views regarding Liberal reunion
have remained unchanged since I spoke al
Birmingham, in July. What has happened
since has confirmed the views I then ex
pressed. I attribute the break in the Lib
eral party to the unwisdom of its leadei
and to most deplorable advancement of tb«
bnlk of the party of its position in tbepol
icy at that leader's institution or com
mand. They talked and voted on me*»
ures few understood accepting them from a
popular minister. I dare not surrendei
the interests of the Irish people to a con
spiracy lient on destroying the land ownen
of the country as a first step towards sever
ing lrelaud from England—a conspiracy te
which so much of Ireland's present suffer
ing and demoralization is due. I have
lieen associated very intimately tor t went J
years with this popular minister. I hart
spoken for Ireland for thirty years. I have
implored successive prendre* to do tb<
utmost legislation they could do for Ire
Und. My sympathy for Ireland is now ai
warm and real as ever. I believe the ma
jority of instruct«! and tboaghtfnl Irish
men prêter tbe protection and justice of the
Imperial Parliament to the rnle of con
spiracy made by the Irish Parliament.
