A THRILLING EXPERIENCE.
A I'an Handle Ilrnkeman Take, a Flight
Through the Air, bat U Uninjured.
Particulars reached this city this morn
ing of a frightful experience through which
a Little Miami brakeman went last (Wed
nesday) night at Sonora, O. The victim
was Thomas Mannigan, who Is a resident
of this city and one of the best known rail
road men In Springfield. The train is
known as the limited, which leaves here
for the west at 7:30 p. m. and runs be
tween this city and Richmond, Ind. It Is
a prominent train from the fact that It has
a through sleeper to Chicago, arriving
there at 6:55 a. m. on the day following.
The train is In charge ot Conductor Al
Keeser. of Springfield.
The accident happened when the train
was approaching Sonjira, western-bound,
at about 10:15 p. rn. Sonora Is In Preble
county, about midway between Davton, O.,
and Kicbmond, Ind. The station is a regu
lar stopping place for the train, but last
night there were no passengers to let off or
take, on, and Brakeman Mannigan stepped
to the platform to signal the engineer with
his lantern before he should begin to slack
up, to go right on through. The train was
running, at the time, about forty miles an
hour, and was just passing under a bridge
as the brakeman reached the platform. He
leaned out by hanging on to the rail and
swung his lantern high aloft to signal the
engineer, just as the train darted under the
bridge. In a twinkling the lantern bad
wrapped around the guard-rail of the
bridge and fastened itself. Mannlgan's
hold on the lantern was firm and in an In
stant he was
jekked vmn TEnniFPic FoncE
from the steps ana flung like a toy far out
Into the darkness.
Conductor Keeser was standing on the
platform of the front passenger coach when
the accident occurred, almost within' reach
of Manuigan, and a cry of horror escaped
him as be saw the man disappear, and
realized the character of the accident.
Considering the speed of the train and
other conditions, it looked as though Man
nigan must have been killed or terribly In
jured. Keeser Immediately pulled the
bell-rope and stopped the train. A search
was made for Mannigan an unwilling
search, as all dreaded what they expected
to find. Much to their surprise and grati
fication, however, they found him sitting
on the bank awaiting the return of the
train. He was perfectly conscious, and
although terribly bruised, had no broken
bones. His escape from death is little less
than a miracle. Mannigan says the expe
rience was a irtgbtiul one similar, he Im
agines, to being shot out of a gun.

MR. BLAINE'S RETURN.

A special to the Commercial Qazctie
from New York sajs:
"Though no fuss has been made about it,
Bepublican clubs throughout the country

of steamers to go down the bay and meet

'We were In Springfield when the bulle

nominated for president The news was
not received with that degree of enthusiasm

Springfield claimed that they should have

choice was Blaine, and no one else need

Love. Labor Lost.
Louisville, June 28. The grand juiy
last evening returned four indictments
against James W.Tate, late state treasurer.
for the crime of embezzlement The total
amount set out in the indictment Is S404,
0S0.S7. The commonwealth's attorney
says no true bill could be found against
Tate for forgery on the erasure of amounts
In his bank passbook. That bank book
was his private property. Embezzlement
Is not an Cextraditable crime. The court
fixes bis bail at 510,000. It is hardly possi

state to be brought to trial.

AN ELECTRIC STORM
Prevents the Arrival of the Homing
Pigeons In New York on Time.
'ine Homing pigeons which were re
leased from the towerof the Central engine
house, this city, at 4:37 Saturday momlng.
reached their destination at New York a
little late, according to advices from the
metropolis state. The race was for the
American championship and was under the
auspices of the New York Homing club.
The birds were fourteen in number, each
belonging to a different member of the
club. The liberation was successfully per
formed by Assistant Chief Charles
W. Cathcart As soon as the
box was opened the fourteen birds darted
out like so many bullets, rose and circled In
the gray dawn a moment and then started
east with double the speed of an express
train. It was a beautiful sight One of
the birds dropped a feather just as It start
ed, upon which the name of Its owner was
painted. Some of the birds are the same
that crossed the Atlantic from London to
New York. Marvellous Indeed must be the
Instinct which guided them across the
trackless Atlantic without a moment's stop
or rest Equally singular almost. Is their
ability to fly half across a continent the
topographical features ot which are neces
sarily unknown to them.
The buds did not arrive in N. Y on
the time expected, and some are. lost as
the following letter received by Mr. Cath
cart from Fred F. Benson, secretary of the
club, will show:

The most remarkable runaway in the
history of South Charleston occurred Mon

The idea would be to have -a parade, such

would be represented. Make it a mammoth

manufacturer, the professions, the public

The regular weekly meeting of that ac

something of a disappointment this morn
