= "Until recent years they were bitteri

said, "and especially to the lines comg-j;

cause there are graves all over the

corroborated by other confederates,
was rejected, and Lesurques received

.One Cent Claim* Ago!xi?t Uncle Sam.
! There have been several one cent
(claims against the United States gov|eminent.
One was by the Southern
(Pacific,'which submitted a bill of $o.20
Jfor hauling government freight. It
was a bond aided road, only part of its
11bills against the government being
; [paid in cash, the rest going to the ralliroad's
credit on the bonds. In this
lease its credit was $5.28 and its cash a
'cent. Another government obligation
|of a single cent was in favor of a
'chemical company which for some unexplained
reason agreed in a public
'competition to supply 10302 pounds of
iethyl ether for a cent. The offer was
;accepted. There were nine signatures, j
rcne that of a rear admiral, on the pa- j
'per relating to the establishment of
this claim, and the warrant for payjmeut

An Accident on the Beit Line.
Yesterday. morning at 0: ."0 a peculiar
accident occurred on the Belt
Line. Yardengine No. 1042, in charge
of Conductor Nuzum and Engineer
Sapp, was working on the high line
near .Johns Bros', factory. While attempting
to make a living switch, the
engine was derailed and car badly
damaged. In some manner the plates
which fasten the heel of the switch
3101*11 r to the stock rail became detached,
causing the engine to strike the
"lip" thus formed, with the above results.
A steam derrick was required to
clean 11 p.
The damage is estimated at about
$125.00 to the engine and $20.00 to the
car and contents.
