MrAeiieron "Itallroad I.EM The Campaign -A Tld.lllt Take Off Your Hats. Hon. Andrew Itoy. of den Hoy. Jackson county, until recently state mine inspector. was In Springfield the other day, and know ing him to be well acquainted with John McHride, democratic candidate for the of fice of secretary of state, I took occasion to pet some pointers from him on Mr. Mc-Uride- "Oh. ye." said Mr. Roy. "I've known John McHride ever since he wore short dresses. As a man I have nothing to say against him, but as a workingman and pol ltician he is bogus. You know he is held ui y the democratic press as a candidate taken right from the ranks of the working men, but that it all buncomb. 1 believe he did work a little In the mines when he was a boy, but work and McBride never agreed. He was residing then In Massillon, and at the ace of seventeen ran away from home and enlisted in the regular army. He re turned home In about three years and went to work again in the mines, but he soon got tireo. Alter leaving ine mine he was appointed on the Massillon police force, and was finally electad president of the Miners' Union. That organization in cludes about one-tifth of the miners in Ohio and has succeeded in distinguishing itself by fighting the Knights of Labor. Ever since McBride has been connected with the Miners' Union he lias used the organization as a stepping-stone to advance hlm-lf, and as a means to further his personal enr's. "His seat in the general assembly was secured by his osing as a workingman aul as the workinguien's friend. He is now In a position to advance the interests of the laboring clashes, but he is willing to kick them aside to advance himself. Just as he used the organization of which he is the head to get into the Ohio house, he is now using It to secure his election to the office of secretary of state. When lie was a can didate for the nomination be represented to his own organization, to Uie Knights of La bor, and to all other labor organizations, that he was nut a democrat; that he was simply a workingmen's representative, and in case the . republicans nominated a a representative workingman for secretary of state lie would decline to run on the democratic ticket and would take off his coat and work for the success of the repub lican ticket He had prominet men in the ranks of labor all over the state write to the leading democratic politicians urging his nomination, and it was by sucli means and on such representations that his nomi nation was secured. "He is a demagogue of the worst type, and the Hocking valley miners are begin ning to realize, that fact Hecent meetings helil in that valley have soured the miners on him. These meetings were called in the interest of the Miners' Union, and for the pur)o$e of booming that organization. Re publican miners subscribed several hundred j be pleased should the custom become gen dollars to Insure the success of the meet-1 cral and I think it will in time. I mean ings, and then McBride had the stupendous j Dy ladles not the "full dress," or undress, cheek to turn the meetings into a political j kind, but those who wear the garb of the boom' for himself. John is cun-, averane United States citizen. It is need- ning. He imjiorted democratic miners from Pennsylvania to make speeches in his behalf, and to urge, the miners to vote for him. It is said that these speakers were paid for their services by the democratic state committee. This action on the part of McBride mortally offended the republi can miners who were, prior to that time, very friendly toward him, and they will vote solidly against him. I tell yon, there's no fear of a disaffection among republicans iu the nocking Valley. "Miners, as a class, and labor organiza tions generally, including the Knights of Labor, are opposed to their leaders accept ing nominations from the old parties jes. and from new parties, too," said Mr. Hoy, iu answer to my question. "Their view is that thpy are and ever will be divided politically, and they think that if one of their leaders is taken up by one of the old parties. It is merely a ruse by which the party hopes to trade on their political convictions. That Is the way they view McBride's nomination. A man's political convictions are like his religion not to be traded upon. Powder- ly refused a congressional nomination and McBride is the only man I know who lias used a labor unions a stepping stone to his own political advancement "I think he will receive less votes than any man on the state ticket, for he has tre mendous opposition among the democratic miners of the Hocking Valley, who, in a case like this, will stick to their republican brethren. McBride has used them as cats' paws once too often and they do not propose to assist in boosting him into a soft place where be can do them no good." "Sea legs you have doubtless heard of; but did it ever occur to you that there was such a tiling as railroad legs?" said an ex press messenger to me. the other day. Just after he had prevented me from falling through the side door of a baggage car, as the train rounded an abrupt curve. I seized his arm to steady myself, as I replied that I had never given the matter any thought, although 1 had noticed that a man could adapt himself to the roughest riding on the fastest trains. "Is the knack all in the legs?" I asked. "Yes, all of it," he replied. You stand in a certain way on your feet and j-our jolnts, from the hips down, accommodate themselves to the motion of the cars. Watcli me while I record this express matter. You write a very fair hand, I presume, at your desk, but I doubt if anybody could make out anything you might write while standing up in this car, and.it would be wore if you were sitting down." Taking his pencil and book, the express messenger proceeded first to unhinge all his joints, and second to write in very legible characters in the book, which he held loosely In his left hand. Ills weight was thrown on the balls of his feet, his knees bowed forward and sideways, every sinew seemed to be relieved from tension, and Ids body swung easily iu his hip joints as the car jumped and swayed on its trucks. The motion of the car did not affect his body I qlutt'A t!M hltw Yfpnt til T.v!nir it 1 cently to and fro. While he piled the pencil his elbows were held away from his sides, and the littlo finger of his left hand supported the book on which the ball of lib right hand rested. "It's all the result of experience," lie said, on laying aside his book. "When a man gets on a railroad he must discard stitf Joints and put springs in his knees. In rough riding he mut Ieam to keep his weight on thu balls of his feet and let the spring of his instep assist in killing the Jolting. His heels should leave the lloor at every jump, and at the same time his knees should tike up the slack. Just notice the practiced railroader walk through a car and then observe how the passenger, who does not ride often, w ill fall around and grab at the arms of the seat as he tries to follow him. Drummers, and those who ride often, learn the act and do not make exhibitions of themselves, but it is really comical to watch those on a train who have never ac quired railroad legs." The campaign is fairly on, and from now until the ioIls close on the 2d of Xovcmber ever" inch of )olitical vantage ground will be bitterly contested. The republicans now have their campaign paint on, and, as they have always done In years gone by, they will make a bold, daring, brilliant fight and a light that will win. Democrats and anti-Kennedy men generally have believed that republicans would make a heartless struggle this fall, but they are being rapidly disillusioned. The vigorous manner in which republicans have taken up the cam paign work during the past week has made democratic eyes protude to such an extent that they could be knocked off with a stick, and one doesn't hear so much of their bold talk about beating "Hob" as he heard two weeks ago. Their confidence is on the wane, and in another week they will be on the run. The following very timely tld-bitis from the pen of II. Clay Lukens, of the Xew York press, and it tits exactly: Hark! the chestnut bell Is pealing. Gently pealing, softly stealing O'er this Jolly, optimistic world of mirth; Casting lasting condemnation (in all human celebration Of this prehistoric, protoplastic wortl. Hark ! the chestnut bell Is pealing, (ientlr ieallng. softly stealing. From the vest ol every silly tool In town. And Its tlntlnabulations With his silly catchimatlons Would be stock In trade for any circus clown. "Twenty-five useful household articles will be sent upon receipt of twenty-five cents. Great opportunity. Don't miss it Address , Xew York." So read an advertisement which attracted the atten tion of a Center street lady, not long ago. Heing somewhat curious to know what the articles were, she sent the quarter, and in due time receieed in return twenty-five shining needles. I notice that In some of the large cities a movement is on foot to'have ladies remove their hats In a theater. A check room is proposed In which all unnecessary wraps, hats, and bonnets may be left by patrons of the theater upon entering, and at which they may receive them again as they depait This is an innovation most devoutly to be wished for, and it would be a good idea if it could be put in practice in Spring field. I think all ladies would less to say that a lady looks much more bu&utiful at a play without a hat or bonnet than she does with one, and the play looks much more beautiful to the people behind her. It is to be hoped that the custom will grow until hats arc no more worn by ladies in theaters than by men. Max. THE PEELERS' WORK. Geo. Trletrh Arretted tor Kutinlg a Con. cert In Connection with hi. Saloon. Up till one o'clock the arrests were noth ing but drunks with variations. John Donahue was arrested by Xorton. Mc-H Clure gathered in Wm. Hackenburg. Em ma Keeps, a young colored girl, was drunk and heaved up Jonah near Kidder's restau rant and was kindly taken care of by Was ky, the ladies' man, and given a ride to tht? hotel de Dillon. Emma was a very drunk damsel, although some of her friends attempted to secure her release on the plea that she only drank three glasses of beer. It is said she took sugar in her "coffee" which occasioned the sickness. Fred Wil son was run in by officer Johnson, and of course it was left to Kizer to arrest the poor, inoffensive and much abused Doc. White head who only regained his liberty at 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The only Important arrest of the evening was that of Ceo. Freitch, the Market street saloonkeeper, for permitting a con cert or theater to run in con nection with his saloon. Two concert singers. May Lawrence and Lizzie Hoben, were also arrested, and the charge of loitering about a saloon put opposite their names. The whole party were re leased, without leaving the saloon, on Trletch putting up S50 for his own appear ance Monday and $10 each for the women. Although there has been considerable talk of pulling this saloon ever since it added the concert feature, this is the first attempt in that line. One of the women wanted to leave the city last evening, but this little ac cident made it necessary to postpone the departure for a time. Tiie regular "hill" trouble took place last night at about half past six o'clock. In the melee Mike McDennott hit John Wesley Johnson on the left eye, closing it up tight Mike lias not been found yet TOMNir McMlLLEN IS VISITED.

A Hoaeman Takes a Tumble, but Kscnpes Serious Injury. At ten o'clock last night the fire alarm bell at the Central engineliou.se rang out an alarm of fire from box six, at the Spangen berger house. East Main street. The hook and ladder wagon and hose cart Xo. 1 got out in good shape, and hummed -down Market street at a lively rate. The ex tinguisher and the Westerns were not quite so prompt In front of Troupe's drug store "Red" Rolley, one of the hosemen, attempted to catch on to the hook and ladder truck, just back of the front wheel, but failed to gain a foothold, and was dragged several rods, swinging under the wagon and bumping on the ground before the horses could be stopped. Rolley received a bad cut over tho right eye and was considerably bruised and shaken up, but was able to proceed with the wagon. When the department arrived near the location of box six a line of hose was run out and an attempt made to find a fire at Xo. 14S East Main street occupied by Dr. Reld, but without success. Some would-be wag suggested that probably some one saw the doctor's bright locks and imagined it a fire. Anyway no fire was found, and the 500 people drawn by the alarm returned home disappointed.
