The frightful ac cident near Tiflin, on Tuesday, Is a leading topic of discussion. At the capltol today I its horrible details were repeated and com- I merited upon, and the feasibility of nation- : al legislation for the better protection of the traveling public was suggested from differ- ent sources. As the Inter-state commerce bill is now pending, it is regarded by some ) as a most opportune time ior a careiuj con sideration of the practicability of legislation designed to prevent a repetition of yes-' terdaj's horrors. By some such legislation is pronounced unnecessary, on the ground that the Interests of railroads impel them to use every precaution against accident. But there are others who maintain that rail road corporations In their greed for busi ness, andjt:rged by a spirit of competition, become reckless as to public safety. Among other suggestions heard is one that congress should appoint a committee to make a thorough Investigation of the ac cident and of the methods of running pas senger trains on the railroads of the coun try, such committee to submit a report and its recommendations to congress next win ter. rAtTLT OFTIIE FREIGHT CREW.

That Carbolic Arlil l'recilutlon Dad Ac- clilent to n Coaster A New Cnrllle Firm Attached l"rtposeil Fire Cera- tuition Urlef LocaU. "1 think that the city nowspapers are Jumping at conclusions altogether too much In the case of Josiah Sharpe, and are doing the attending physician a meat Injustice," said a well-known doctor to a Republic reporter this morning. "There are two sides to every story, j ou know, and there are most emphatically two to this. Some body Is either purjiosely or unintentionally, promulgating a falsehood, and I certainly hope that if the case ever comes to public investigation the falsifier, whoever lie K may lie shown up In his true colors. "In the first place, the attending physi cian prescribed a solution of carbolic acid as a wash or dressing for Mr. Sharpe's foot didn't he? The foot got worse after solu tion was applied and had to be tiken off above the knee by another doctor and sev eral assistants. Thee are the facts, 1 be lieve. Well, now, let's look into the case. The prescription called for four tablespoon fuls of carbolic acid to a half-pint of water. That makes what we call a 30 per cent so lution. I admit that it was too strong; I am not attempting to defend that point But what I do strongly insist Is that the solution could not have injured the foot to the ex tent that amputation was a necessity. A twenty per cent, solution of carbolic acid Is as a mild as a dew-drop compared with molten malleable Iron and yet hardly a day passes but that some workman in one of Springfield's gteat manufacturing foundries gets a shoe full of the buming metal. Do they lose a foot every time such an accident occurs? No, Indeed, and if amputation was necessary in the case of Mr. Sharpe. It arose trom the diseased condition of the foot, aud the carbolic acid had almost as little to do with the amputation, as the hauling of an Ice-wagon through the streets has to do with the climate. Any assertion that it did Is I take it nothing better than an unscionable attempt to cast disrepute on a brother physician. "I have known would-be suicides to drink pure carbolic acid to kill themselves. They didn't die; neither was It necessary to am putate their heads A FIRE COMMISSION. Another Eflmt to be Made to Establish a Municipal Reform The Matter to Come Hefore the City Council. A decided movement Is on foot in Spring field to take the necessary steps toward the establishing of a board of fire commission ers for this city. The matter is in the hands of parties who w ill push It with Interest and discretion, and it will be presented to the city council in some form or other at the meeting next Tuesday evening. A pe tition is being prepared today and will be put In circulation tomorrow. The idea Is for council to authorize Representative George C. Rawlins to introduce a special bill In the legislature for the creation of sucli a board. The advocates, of the scheme urge that a lire commission in Springfield is nothing short of a necessity. It would consist ot fotirmrtnbers. two of-each party, wlthtlw chief as secretary, but without a vote, and would have entire control of fire denart- ment matters The fire department com- ! mittee of council Is painfully handicapped and can do nothing without the consent of council. The result Is a iuWed-up fire de- partment government j THE BEE LINE PAYS UP. I City Clerk sliewallir Sen-Ire. a Check tor S4,?8u.nu From the C. C. C. I. Freight Agent Todd, representing the C. ' C.

As a matter of history the ordi nance of 1797. one hundred years ago. was referred to when it was said by President Madison that the territory could not be governed unless news could be distributed to them. Religion, morally and knowledge were the basis of gixid government and schools for the people should lie maintained in that territory as far as possible. Herein was recognized the necessity of training the heart as well as the mind. The training of the heart may be done by parents or ministers and the Sabbath school Is especially organized for this purpose, and it will educate all who come within its in fluence. And what is the origin of this text book ? "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man. but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." 2d Peter 1 : 21. The origin of this book is from God and we have come to a wonderful book. Wonderful movements create heroes In every age and country. Everything said and done by Washington. Lincoln, Garfield, and other great uen. In terests us and why? Because of the char acters of the men. If we can become In terested in the words and working of great men. why not in the words and works which God has done? Our Book tells what God did; if not it would have been crushed out centuries ago. The world has been against It because it teaches men. and re veals the will and love of our Heavenly Father. It teaches men to reason; that we are made in God's Image; that we must give Him our hearts and live for Him. Thus does it shed light upon our pathway, and If we but follow its teachings, will ultimately bring us into His kingdom. The next topic, "What Is Expected of the Sunday School Teacher," was taken up by Mr. Wachter, who said that a Sunday school teacher need not be a'-president of a college, but may be a very ordinary man a farmer, mechanic, or a day-laborer. But whatever he may be. there are some qualities he must possess to be a successful teacher. He must be prompt always on hand. He should be In his place ready to meet his class, and If he Is thus prompt, you may be certain he Is always prepared to teach Ids lesson. He should be regular never absent and this will have an effect on the whole school. Including the superintendent. There should be no excuse for absence except sickness or unavoidable absence from the city. Scholars watch the teacher very closely aud are quick to follow his example, and if they see him early at hLs post they will be sure to be there also. The teacher should commence his prepar ation early as soon as today's lesson is over, commence the next Sabbath's lesson, so that a whole week may be had to think It over. Study the needs of the class, learn the disposition of each scholar, and work and pray. Ask for wisdom from on high and w ill come. Martin L. Size then took up the same topic, dwelling upon the necessity of care ful preparation, promptness and spiritual help, and a determination to succeed. The next topic announced was "What is expected of the Sunday school scholar?" I. II. Kelley was called upon to respond to mis topic lie saw mat the scholar had much to do with the success of the Sunday school. The first element in a good scholar was good attention, evidencing a desire to learn and stimulating the teacher to greater efforts to f umish him the requisite Informa tion, uererence was made to the annoy ance by scholars, either old or young, who were Inclined to play or talk, who lost the place and had to be told, and thus retarded tbe progress of the lesson. AH were urged to make themselves good scholars nd thus insure a good Sunday school. 1 rot. ihreuield was called upon to re spond to me topic: "wnat is the future of the Sunday school?" He supposed that the question was meant to include the Sunday School In its completeness. To look for ward to such a great length of time it would be Impossible to tell what may occur. Elec tricity works wonders, yet none a few years ago Imagined the great results of this agency as are now shown forth. The question may have been asked once: "What Is the future of the plough?' We now think it is about completed, and It is about as good as it ever will be. ot so the Sunday schooL When our bodies shall have been laid In the dust, when future generations shall come. the Sunday school will still continue point ing the way to tnnsL I he Sunday school will not cease to be in the future, it will continue to be; It will not to back; it will not be less, it will enlarge; it will draw from the word of God. no other book will be substituted, but only the Bible then, as now. In which shall be found the words of eternal truth. In the future there will be more teachers filled with heavenly-ardor ana illumined by tlie light of the Holy Spirit, boys and girls will know their les sons will come, having prepared themselves to take In the golden words springing up into eternal lite. Uliapels like this will be found on many hill tops, and all genera tions will be In the Sunday schools. It Is to be hoped that then jieople will not be so mad after news that every channel will not be dredged to find out all the mur ders and wickedness to publish for Sunday- reading, and that the mercantile business w ill be less, and Sunday trains will cease. and we have more leisure, like the Quaker no rush and thunder but more quiet more in tlie Sunday school, and this will make the worM wiser and better fitted for future life. The Sunday school Is the nurs ery of the church and should be more so. Children should be followers of the meek and lovely Jesus.the leaven should be found In the heart and leaven the whole, and all be guided Into the church and became citi zens of His kingdom. God grant that we may do all we can to bring about this re sult ltev. W. II. Warren being called upon, said that ho diil not expect to speak, but wanted to be here to show his Interest In the work, and his respect for the noble work of the superintendent through whose untiring efforts and those associated in it this work had been accomplished. His thoughts went back to twelve years ago, and since then as he had been called to minister to then, when they hail buried their tit tle ones, or those In middle age or of riper years. Then they looked forward to a time when they might have a home of their own, a house to be dedicated to the Lord, where many In this best and brightest year should be born Into the fold of Christ My dear brother, there Is no one who rejoices more than I do with you that so largely-through your efforts have we arrived at tills oeriotL May every officer. teacher and scholar see to It that no school In the county shall be a better one than this, and my prayer is that every one shall be so interested that it shall be ever in the front And as you shall come here to show consolation when you are caned to oii tan well to loved ones, may the thought "peace on earth, good will toward men" go forth from here unto all and may God bless y ou as you go on working, suffering, endeavor Ing to learn and to do the win of me Master. Mr. Warren then offered a fervent prayer for tlie success of Rockwy Sunday school and all Interests connected there with. After brief remarks by the superintend ent. In which the Use of the chael wa? tendered to all Christians for preaching or funeral service, tlie meeting was dismissed with benediction by lrofes.sor lrince. A STUBBORN FIRE. The Selbert lllaie Difficult to Handle Heavy Loss on floods. Concerning the fire at Urbana yesterday morning, about which a few facts were published in a special to the Kepi'elk last evening, the Urbana Citizen says: Early this morning an alarm of fire was sounded from the First ward department and soon the people were flocking to the large brick building of the Odd Fellows' on south Main street When tlie department reached the scene smoke was jwuring out of the building In volumes It required some time to gam an entrance t-i tl.r room, and whan the door was burst In the firemen were forced back by the dene cloud of smoke that tilled the room. Water was soon playing on the fire from the front and back entrance, and gradually the fire men worked their way in. It was a stub born fire, but finally succumbed to the ef forts ot the firemen, but not until the room and contents had been badly damaged by smoke and fire. The origin of the fire is a mystery, and just how it caught cannot be ascertained. It evidently started In the central part of the room, in a pile of paper that was lying there, and had likely been smoldering for the greater part of the night At this point a large hole was burned in the floor anil the rafters burned off, so as to let the floor sink. The walls of the room were badly damaged by smoke, and the casing and cornice were burned to a crip. The heaviest loser will be George T. Sel bert He had quite a lot of fine cigars, leaf tobacco, potatoes cabbage, mill feed, etc All of which are so badly damaged as to be almost worthless. He estimates his loss at about $4,000. There is insurance of 33.500 on his stock. U000 of which Is In the Home of New York, and S 1.500 In the North America. C. A. R. ENTERTAINMENT At Black.

Isaac Kendig, a grocer on the Dayton pike, a few miles below this city, was the victim of a bold robbery- on Tuesday even ing. While alone In hLs store a stranger entered and asked for three plugs of tobac co and tendered a ten dollar bill hi payment Not having the necessary change in the drawer, he drew out his pocketbock which contained a roll of bills At the sight ot the money the stranger snatched the book and before Mr. Kendig could hvrd'y n-aliz what had occurred, the robber ran out am. closed the front door. His victim started in pursuit a moment afterward, but when he attempted to op-i. the door he found it fastened on the outside. Mr. Kendig then ran out from a rear en trance, but when he reached the front of the house no trace of the robber could be discovered. The latter had stuck a cine through the handle of the door In such a manner as to lock it on the outside. Ken dig alarmed his neighbors and a scoutln. party was organized, but at last accounts no trace of the robber had been found. Mr. Kendig thinks tlie pocketbook contained about forty dollars.
