Slid ibe venerable secretary: "I have alwavs bef n a witty and a republican, but this cumpaiffn tenii to be turning od the stion f tnr:ll refopf(, aud upon that suhjr-ct I nave niw.3Ld very positive Convictions. My sympathies are natur ally with tariff reformers. E never be lieved that the hiuu wr tariff ought to have been continued after the necessity for raising enormous revenue had passed llwafi 001 inten:en V anyoony at that time that the hiyh duties should be main- tamed, but it was generally understood that they should be lowered considerably in time of peace. I don't believe anv body could act as secretary of the treas ury without becomir? convinced of the necessity of tnriff revision. I have watched Mr. Cleveland's administration very Cfiretuily, and I consider it to have been marked wirh signal ability and up' Tightness." 'What effect, in your opinion, would the adoption of the president's sugges tions id leuislalkm have upon our indus tries?' "A very r-rnefbiil effect. One thing is certriin; we can never extend our market buynnd our own shores and improve the condition of our laborioy classes under the present combination of high tariff and ireelab'tr We cannot allow emigrants to pour in u on us at the present rate and n ot injure our stand ml of labor and wages. We ought to be a great commercial nation. We bve all the natural advantages. But we must free trade from its restrictions. We reallv have no international trade now. Most of our exports now are food stuffs, and moat of them go to England. Ot her mition buy of -is only what they cannt iret anywhere else. There is all the South American trade, of which we get only a smi'.' share; we ought to have a great deal more ot it. But we can never expect to have any international trade of any importance so long a we maintain a hih protective tariff both on manufactured and on raw materials. We always must have a tariff, and a pretty high one, too, for our government is, so to speak, wedded to indirect taxation. and, although I do not believe it. is a wit-e or a jun system, it will probably continue to exist, and by just so much will hamper our foreign commerce; but our objec t should be to reduce this re striction to the minimum, so as to give as free scope as is possible to commerce without impairing Ihe revenues neces sary to the maintenance of the govern ment.'' mt. McCulloch said -he thought the Miils bill was a good one, and the cry that it would injure our manufacturing industries was, in hi opinion, all "bosh." When asked if the waire workers of the country bad anything to f?ar from the adoption of us principles he replied that they had not. Continuing, hesiid: "The issue is made up by the party platforms. Eich party convention has fahen its position on the question and must await the re suit. My convictions lead me to take Bides with the platform which favors tariff reform." 'Do you believe that the Chicago platform offers any hope of tariff re form?" "On the contrary, it offers just the re verse." "rihall you vote for Cleveland and Tburman if you are able to eo to the poller "i conM not help it, in justice to my conscience ad convictions." The correspondent aked the ex-secre tary of the treasury what he thought of Mr. Harrison's and Mr. Blaine's sugges tions that Secretary Faircnild should nave used the surplus in purchasing bonds and should not have distributed part of it among the national banks without inter est. Mr. McCulloch smiled and said env. phstioally that he should have hesitated a long while before consenting to pay such high premiums for bonds, especially when the price wa appreciated Bolely be cause of the government's purchases. The purchases, too. would be made most Jy from large bondholders, and would not tend to put the money in active circula tion among the people. "As to the des posits of public moneys iu national banks," he said, "that was the only thing the secretary could do if he. did not pur chase bonds. Shrm-m did the same thing. If Mr. Fairchi'd had kept the money locked up in the treasury there would have been a great outcry. It was a perfectly legal act to distribute the money among the national depositories; it was justifiable under the circumstances ad in my opinion perfectly proper," The venerable ex secretary lives at his summer home most of the year, coming m to his house in town only for a few monies in the winter season. He shows no Bigos oi the approach of his 80th year in appearance. One would take him to be 6o or 70. His face is full, ruddy and unwrinkleii, his eye keen and his voice clear. Yet he complains of not being in the best of health, and has not been able of late to go far from his home. Viviparous Fishes of Florida, It is a fact of interest to naturalists that in aU the freh water of F.orida are found fishes that bring forth their young alive and perfect, instead of laying egS3 m of the finny tribe generally. The parent fishes are very small, being only from one and a half to two inches long, and are often used lor bait for bass. The exact name of the genus and species Is not yet known, but the bocks mention several species of goby as being viviparous, like the specimens here mentioned. Savaonah News, DOCTORS DISAGREE. BUT THE EDUCATED ONES DO THE BEST FOR THEIR PATIENTS. The Title "Doctor" Not Always to Be Considered aa Evidence That the Wearer I a Skilled Physician A Caw of Typhoid Fever. It is a common saving that "doctor disa gree,1 etc One is constantly hearing that old and threadbare expression, the idea being conveyed that it is only exceptionally that it two or more are called upon for an opinion as to the character of the disease in any given case, or the treatment demanded, they are seldom in accord. I he real fact is that the reverse of this is true that what is ac cepted as the rule is actually the exception. Doctors du occasionally disagree, but only In exceptional Pases. It must be reruenitiored that there are doctors and doctors. Some are well educated aud others are but iudif- ferently so, and a very large proportion throughout our country, and especially Mas sachusetts, are absolutely ignorant even of the first principles of medicine. Ine title "doctor is generally SHpposed to be one which can only bo acquired through some college or university legally authorized to confer it. It is also a common belief that it is invariably a sign that ho who wears it has been "duly qualified and not found want ing," or, m other words, that he has been properly educated, ar.d "lire and limb can be safely intrusted to Ins keeping. This is true in one respect, but far from the truth in another.

There are neither legal nor social restrictions to the usa of the title- nor is there, excepting in two or three states in the Cnion, any law which restricts the practice of medicine to those only who aro known to be properly educated. Any man or woman, do matter how ignorant or depraved he or she is, has just as m:ii-b r. ht to assume the care of the sick or injured and practice of medicine and sari:-, ry tu. ho who has spent four years in coutmu..u study at the Har vard Medical coliece. A CASE OF TYPHOID. Every druggist knows that he is, for obvi ous reasons, singularly and unjustly liable to lawsuits. A bare suspicion of an error on his part is sufficient basis for one, and in conse quence of a single mistake his business mav be ruined and the savings of years swept away. Realizing this hv is exceedingly care ful himself, and is very certain not to allow any one in his employ who is incompetent to do anything which will jeopardize him. On the other hand, a man practicing as a phy- sieian, yet not thoroughly familiar with the workings of disease and the use of drugs, is alwavs nangerous m tue extreme, A few drops too much ot" this extract, a fraction of a grain of that powder, given to his patient and the deadly work is done. But his awful error is Known only to himself. His gnatier.t dies, but to disease is attributed the cause. It is always easy lor him to deceive the friends of the unfortunate. Take a case of tVTbo:d fever, for instance. In its early stage :hj disease is seldom easy of recognition. It is, in fact, almost always more or less difficult. Ihere are then but rarely si ns sufficiently marked to enable even the most skillful PhvS.eian to say with certaintv that the case befoi- him i one of tvphoid. Ee notes th:s and that svmptom. here and there an indication, which lead him to suspect that the patient has that much dreaded fever. But he must wait a day or two before he can decide. He must watch the rise and fall of the temperature, night and morning that will tell him much, for the variations are characteristic the changes in the pulse, iu the expression, in the tongue. in the appearance of the abdomen, etc. The symptoms of typhoid are many. Some which are prominent in one ease are absent in others. ith a few or.ly prt ent ho can- not judge, for they constitute tne bare out- i lines; he must -wait for the picture todevel- op. But while waiting he is by no means Idle. In the interests of. his patient he is an ticipating every exigency which is likely to arise. He takes no chances, but sees that in nursing, etc., every precaution is instituted which would be indicated in a case of ty phoid. His medicinal treatment is directed to the symptoms. Fever is kept down, pain allayed, restlessness quieted, sleep produced, and so on. At last he Is sure of his diagnosis; it is typhoid. But he has left nothing un done, there is nothing he would wish he could undo. All along he has kept within the safety lines. Yet how different would have been the work of an ignorant pretender an incom petent "doctor." In &9 such cases out of 100 he would have at once pronounced the pa tient's disease bilious fever, and given a purge which In most cases of typhoid would prove fatal and dath been tho direct con sequence.. But diarrhea is present in a very large number of cases; that fact every per son familiar with the diseaw knows. A "doctor" of the sort referred to does not tell the friends what medicine be gives. Nol His practice is shrouded with mvsterv be is a medical Columbus. They have no idea that ho has administered a purge, and the appearanco of the diarrhea does not sur prise them; so when the patient dies they think the fever killed him, and all evidence of the doctor 5 horrible mistake goes six feet under ground. A DIFFERENCE TS DETAILS. Among truo physicians, equally well quali fied, there is rarely in anv given case a dif ference of opinion, except it be in the most unimportant details. There are thousands of drugs at the command of physicians. All have their special favorites. One uses the bromide of sodium as a nervine, while an other prefers the bromide of potassium. In very many instances it would matter little which was given the patient; and yet, were one doctor in favor of the former to assume his care after the other had been in attend ance upon him, the chances are that the in comer would make the trilling change. The carpenter, the machinist, and, in fact, all tradesmen, are wedded to their own tools. To them they are old, tried friends their owners can get on better with them. Bo it is with the physician; drugs tire, practi cally, tools in his hand a. Ho knows, from long experience, just how certain ones will act; they nave stood him in good stead when battling with denth at the bedside. The tools of others may be newer, have a little higher polish, be a little more compli cated, but he prefers his own, for' he knows what be can do with them. Let the people protect themselves and limit the practice of roedicin and surgery, as they havedent'stry and pharmacy, to those who have been duly qualified. Th'y need not re strict it to one "school" They should not consider whether a man who dirps to prac tice medicine is a "regular," a "homoeopath" or an "eclectic," but they should know that he can perform the duties which he would assume that be is a roan whom they can safely trust to beat back death when it threatens mother or child, husband or wife, Boston Herald. A Case of Canine Cleverness. But by far the most interesting part of this hunt to me is yet to come, and to tell which all tbis rigmarolo has been penned. The voices of the two dogs as they passed along the mountain bad been recognized by their owners, and both claimed the deer. Such things have been known to cause a bit ter fend. One was sure it was his dog, and the other was just as sure it was his; but the question of most importance to be settled was, Which of tho dogs starts the deer? The deer was brought on shore and laid upon the green sward, where even the ladies, gen tle creatures, admired it Soon the boat ar rived with the two dogs, and one of the old hunters cried out, "Send those hounds np here, and let us see whose deer this is." Never having beard so strange a story, I, half in doubt, said, What nonsense is that you are talkingr "No nonsense, doctor; wait and f Being deeply interested I approached closely, that I might the better observe the animals. One of them walked up to the deer, smelt him all over and seemed quite in doubt. Then tho other dog came up with an angry growl, smelt the deer and deliberately laid himself down by the animal, while the first dog quietly placed his tail between his legs and walked away. I could not help ex pressing my amazement, and still doubting the fact I said to my old guide: "That dog that is lying by the deer has been the master of the other and has cowed him." "On the contrary," said my informer, "the dog that gave up the deer is the better fighter and whips that dog every time." We learned during the day that the deer had been started ten miles down the river by the dog that claimed h and the sound of his voice drew the other one, about four miles below the lake, confirming the test and proving the wonderful instinct of the hound.

Blaine Sneaks to the People of the "Pocket" A Democratic Demonntra tlon In New York Addreiwed liy Falr child General Harrison's Visitor Hill Closes His Indiana Tour The Big Ball Bolls Through Pittsburg. Columbus, O., Oct 15. Judge Thurman? letter of acceptance was given to the press last night. It is dated Oct. 12, and addressed to Hon. Patrick A. Collins and others, com mittee. It is ns follows; Qentlemen: In obedience to custom. I sen i you this formal acceptance of my nomination for the omce of vice president of the United States, made hv the national convention of the Democratic party at St. Loins. lien you did me the honor tit call upon me at Columbus and officially notify me of my nomination, 1 express to you my sense of obligation to the convention, and stated that, although 1 had not sought the nomination, 1 did nut feel at hUTty. umhr the circumstances. to drM-line it. I thought then, as 1 now think, that whatever 1 could properly do to promot the re eleetiou of Prrsnlei,t t'teveland 1 might to do. His adiiiiiu-itratiou has leeu marked hv such integ rity. gtHHl snse. manly courage, and exalted pa- triotHiu. that a just appreciation oi tneae mgn qualities seems to cat) tor his re election. I am also strongly impressed wun ine oeiiet mat nis reelection would powerfully tend to strengthen that feeling of fraternity among the American people that is so essential to their welfare, peace. and happiness, and to the perpetuity of the Union ami ot our tree institutions. 1 approve the platform of the St. Louis conven tion, and i cau tiot too strongly express my dia- -ut from the heretical teachings of the monopo lists that the welfare of a people can te promoted iy a system of e orbitaut taxation for in excess of the wants of the government. The iilea that a jeoplt can be enrkheii by heavy aud unneces sary taxation, that a man's com! it km can be im proved by taxing him oa all he wears, on all his wife and children wear, on all his tools and im plements of industry is an obvious absurdity. To till the vault of the treasury with an Idle surplus for which ihe government hit; no legit mate use, and to thereby deprive the people, of currency needed for their business and tiaily wanis, and to create a powerful and dangerous stitmdus to extravagance and corruption in the expenditures of the government, seems to me to btj a poiicy at variance with every sound principle of government aud political e onoay. The necessity of reducing taxation to prevent -uch an aecumular ion of surplus revenue and the eouseoueut depletion of the circulating medium is so apparent that no p'irty dares to deny it, but when we come to consider the modes by which the reduction may be imid.t we rtuu a wide an tngonism between our party and the monopolistic I ailers of our political opponents. We seek to reduce taxes upon the necessaries of life; our opponents seek to increase them. We say, rive to thenia-sesot the people cheap and gvxl cloth ing. cheap blankets, cheap tools nud cheap lum ber. The Republicans by their platform, and their leaders iu the senate by their proposed bill, say increase the taxes on clothing and blankets, and thereby increase their cost; main tain a high duty on the tools of the farmer and mechanic and upou lumber, which they need for the construction of iheir modest dwellings, phops and barns, and thereby prevent their obtaining these uecessanes at reasonable prices. Oan any seiisible man doubt as to where he should stand in this controversy? Can any well-informed man be deceived by the ruse pretense that a svst so unreasonable and unjust is for the Deueht of laboring men ? Much is said about competition of American la borers with the pauper labor of Europe; but does not every man who look around him see and know that an immense majority of the laborers iu America nre not in what are called the pro tected '.ndustries? and as to those who are era- ployed in such industries is it not undeniable that the duties proposed by the Democratic measure called the Mills bill far exceed th difference be tween American and European wages, and there fore, if it were admitted that our worbingmen can be protected by tartn against cheaper labor. they would be fnily protected and more than protected by that hil!? Does not every well-in formed man know that the increase in price of home manufactures produced by a high tariff does not go into the pockets or the laboring men, but only tends to swell the profits of others? It appears to me that IT the policy of the Dem ocratic party is plainly presented, all must under stand that we seek to make the cost of living less, and at the same time increase the share of the laboring man in th benefits of national prosperi ty and growth- 1 am very respectfully, your obedient servant.

M Btalne Addresses an Audience of Southern Indinnians at Evan sv I Me. Evajtsville, Ind., Oct. 15. Saturday aft ernoon Hon. James G. Blaine was escorted to Garvin's grove, where he spoke for twenty flve minutes to an audience of about 4,000 people. The scene was made bright by the presence of a large number of glee clubs, composed of young girls in white, who occu pied gayly decorated waqons, and there were large numbers of other ladies present Mr. Blaine was greeted with enthusiastic cheer ing when he arose. His speech was, like all his addresses this campaign, devoted exclu sively to the tariff issue, and the point be made this time was that the Democratic claim as stated by Mr. Mills when he spoke bere a few days ago that the reduction of the tariff by the Mills bill only amounts to about 5 per cent, was not the truth. Said be: "According to the report of the present Democratic secretary of the treasury, the duties levied and collected at all the custom houses of the United States during the past fiscal year amounted in the aggregate to a trifle over $'-Jl:i.O0U,u0O. It is this sura which free traders assail so bitterly, and it is in this i sum that they find the outrages and abuses of the protective system. Of these aggre gate duties of r-'li.WW.OOO, Mr. Mills' bill proposed to takeoff an aggregate of $49,500, 000 (1 give amounts in round number), which was 10 per cent on the total dutiable im portations for the whole year. But that does not tell the whole story, because in the duties on silks and liquors, amounting to $23,000,000, Mr. Mills' bill made no reduction whatever, that the whole of the reduction fell on the $10,000,000 that remained. Mark you still further, that the whole story is not yet tol l, for, of the $isy,000,00u, $5R,000.000 were from duties levied on sugar, and from the duties levied on sugar a reduction was made of $11,000,000, thus leaving the people of the United States to pay $47,000,000 an nually on su?nr. Deduct that 158,000,000 of sugar duties from IS!,000,000 and you have $i;il,0o0,0"0 as the total amount of all duties levied on all other articles in the tariff, and deduct the $11,000,000 which Mr. Mills took off the sugar duties and you have remaining i8.5rt.,000 of a reduction on the remaining $13Lt0o0,0OO of tariff duties. "You win observe that the $131,000,000 of duties affords all the protection that we have on manufactures, except duties on silks; all that we have on co ton, on wool and wool ens, on iron and stjel, ard on all the articles into which iron and steel enter as component parts; in fine, on all that protects manufac tures in the United States, and the labor of those engaged therein. In fact, what may be termed the entire protective system of the United States, over which the two par ties, are now in controversy, is included in that. $m.000,000 of duties. From that $131, 00,000 of duties Mr. Mills proposed to take thirty-eight and a half millions. Yet be tells the people of Indiana that he is only re ducing the tariff 5 per cent, whereas, as a matter of fact, on the whole importation for the entire long list of articles of which I have spoken, he makes a reduction exceed ing 24 per cent "What does Mr. Mills mean when he says that the reduction is only an average of 5 per cent TV ill he face the wool growers of In diana, from whom he tttripa every particle of protection, and tell them that he has reduced them only 5 per cent? Will be tell this to the lumber manufacturers in toe largest hardwood market in the world, in this very county, after having put their product on the free list! Will he say the same thing to the salt producers of Michigan! and I may re peat the inquiry as to the numberless pur suits whicb he has thrust down from a fair protection to the free list Will he tell them all to submit because of the widespread fal lacy that the average redaction of the whole is only 5 per cent? What is it to those in dustries that are stripped naked whether the average is 5 per cent or 500 per centf In either or any event they are thrust out into the cold." The other speakers were J. M. Butler, of Indianapolis; CoL A. Louden Snowden, of Philadelphia A P. Hovey, andidafeeliqr governor, and Gen. A. E. King, of Balti more. A brilliant close was given to the demon stration by a torchlight procession which was reviewed by the distinguished guests, and Mr. Blame left at 11 p. m. for New Al bany, where Hon. R. Q Mills addressed a large audience Saturday night. GOTHAM DEMOCRATS DEMONSTRATE. Rally of Cleveland Business Men, Ad dressed by Falrchltd and Carlisle. Hew York, Oct 15. The Democratic busi ness men held a great demonstration in front of the sub-treasury Saturday. The building i was handsomely decorated, and a platform j built for the speakers, while the rally was assisted by a parade of Democratic clubs. The bands engaged for the parade were al most innumerable. 1 be arrangements at the platform on the sub-treasury steps were as nearly perfect as possible. At 2 o'clock the meeting was Ailed to order by Mr. Joseph J. O'Donohue, and Mr. Frederick N. Lawrence was made chairman. He briefly addressed the assemblage.

Res olutions were read expressing unqualified ap proval of President Cleveland a administra tion and bis tariff message, and adopted with loud cheers. Chairman Lawrence then introduced Sec retary Fairchild as the first speaker. Loud and prolonged cheering greeted the secretary of the treasury as be stepped to the front of the platform. Secretary Fairchild had hardly launched into his speech when he was inter rupted by the arrival of the parade. The different cluha passed by in review with loud cheers, and when they bad passed be concluded his speech, which was largely de voted todisproving the statement that the na tional baiks which were made depositories of the $(30,000,001 of surplus placed, in their charge cleared $50,000 per year on each million. He produced figures to prove that their profits thereon were only a little over $5,000 per mutton. Mr. rairchild was followed by bpeaker Carlisle, who discussed the tariff question. It is estimated that there were from 10,000 to 15,000 men in the procession. The parade was one of the largest ever witnessed m the city so early in the campaign. Crowds lined the streets through which the proces sion passed, and bandanas were seen in pro fusion. HARRISON'S SATURDAY VISITORS. Delegations from Chicago and Milwaukee Call Upon Him.

WELL DONE, OR AN MASONI He Comes In Time to the Rescue of His Father nod Brave Sister. Indianapolis, Ind., Oct 15. Jesse Mason, who lives near the village of Stileville, Hen dricks county, was paid some money Satur day. That night Logan York, of that neigh borhood, with one of his associates, went to Mason's house and asked for matches.

Two Day's Conference Results In a Compromise But the "Scabs" Are Not to Go About Which Fact There Is Some Disposition to "Kick" The Strik ers Get a 6 Fer Cent. Increase. Chicago, Oct 15. The street car strike is ended. After a conference between President Yerfces and the strikers com mittee, which lasted from 10 o'clock yester day morning until nearly S o'clock in the afternoon a compromise was agreed upon, and to-day all the cars on the west and north sides are running with their old crews. The negotiations were begun Saturday morning at 10 o'clock as arranged Friday night, but the action of the west side meet ing, as reported in these dispatches, in de claring an ultimatum, was taken by Mr. Yerkes as a violation of the spirit of the ar rangement, and be told the committee so Tbey therefore returned to the north side headquarters, where another committee was appointed, which again met Mr. Yerkes to diicnss the matter, and the negotiations went on all day and late in the evening, the strik ers being determined in the demand of 21 cents an hour for horse and trail car men and 25 cents for grip cars. This was Hnal ly given as an ultimatum, and Mr. Yerkes asked until 10 a. m. Sunday to consult with his directors, aud it was, so it is said, inad vertently agreed to. After the fruitless negotiations of Satur day afternoon and evening it was thought that the alt-night meeting of the men would decide to resume the strike early yesterday morning without waiting to bear from President erkes at 10 o'clock, at which hour he hadagreed to give his final answer. The men were disposed to regard the frequent postponements as devices on tne part of the company to gam time, and when the meeti ng opened at midnight there was a practical unauimity of sentiment that no cars should be run until the answer of the company should Le re ceived. All the speeches tended m that di rect ion, and had it not been for the efforts of the members of the Citizens' committee who were present ad who were sustained by a letter from Mayor Roche, requesting the men to remain at work until President Yerkes bad given his final decision, it is prob able that yesterday's negotiations would have terminated fruitlessly, iz, indeed, tbey bad been held at all. These conservative counsels prevailed, however, and at 10 o'clock, when the exec utive committee called upon Mr. erkes, all the west side cars were running as usual. As President erkes had made the first prop- osition Saturday, the men opened the ncgo- tiations vesterdav. They offered, on behalf of the north side men, to resume work at an advance of 8 per cent, the "set-car" system to be abolished, and the pay to be by the hour instead of by the trip as heretofore. Mr. Yerkes, on behalf of the companv, of fered an advance of 4 per cent Then the men offered to "split the difference and ac cept 6 per cent Mr. i erkes promptly of fered to give 5 per cent Then there was a long and animated discussion, which termi nated in Mr. Yerkes accepting the 6 per cent, advance. As there will be considerable difficulty in ascertaining just what the 6 per cent rate should be, owing to the change from the system of payment by the trip to that of payment by the hour, Mr. Lyman J. Gage was mutually greed upon as an arbitrator to fix the rate per hour to be paid on the different kinds of cars. In addition to the advance in wages. the men are to'be guaranteed ten hours' work per day. On the side of the company, Mr. Yerkes reserved the right to retain all the new men be had hired for the north side lines. They, however, he places on one of the minor routes, by themselves, so that there will be no friction between tbem and the returning strikers, all of whom will get their old places, with the exception of a few who made themselves conspicuous by stoning the cars and creating disturbances. At the termination of the conference the strikers' committee issned an order to the men to report for dutv as usual this morn ing, and President Yerkes ordered the north side cars, which were being run by imported men under police protection, to be returned to the bams. The west side men, having re turned to work, and their grievances being settled by tho arrangement of th north side difficulty, will of course continue as usual This morning, therefore, saw the full resumption of street car traffic throughout the great residence portions of the city. The satisfactory conclusion of yesterday's negotiations was in a large measure due to the presence and efforts of Mayor Roche. He presided and stated each proposition as it was made, gave urgent reasons v hy the par ties to the conference should not separate without an agreement end proponed the per cent plan which was adopted. The whole conference was taken verbatim by stenog raphers so that there can be no doubt here after about what the agreement was. The headquarters of the strikers were crowded last night with men awaiting the report of tho day's conference. TV hen it did come it was not received with any degree of enthusiasm, owing to the fact that Mr. orkes' determination to retain all tte im ported men means (the loss of many situ ations for strikers. Ihe discontent was increased when, at 11 o'clock, it was an nounced that 1342 of tue new men were to be put to work, and it is feared that unless some means are taken to employ all the oldmen there wilt be further trouble. THE Q" STRIKE IN NEBRASKA. Report of the State Hoard of Transport! tlon Thereupon The Conclusions. Lincoln, Neb., Oct 15. Early last spring the state board of transportation ordered an investigation into the uO" strike, and for some time the members of the board selected w maae me inquiry were engagen taxing testimony relative thereto. The port on the subject has just been filed and will be presented to the egislature at its next meeting. The report says that the evidence taken is suffi cient to "clearly establish the fact that the strike of the Brotherhood engineers on the 87th day of February last and their attempt to dictate who the railroad should employ, was clearly illegal" An incident of the strike which was testified to is given in the report in which it is stated that one of the striking engineers boarded a Burlington G, Missouri engine and offered the engineer in charge $100 to quit work, and upon the new 1 engineer refusing the striker threw him off the engine. The report adds that tins was one of the methods employed by the strikers. who in using this sort of violence were acting for the Brotherhood, which furnished the money to buy off thuss employed to take the places of the strikers; and the report declares tnat if these statements be true a criminal conspiracy existed on the part of said Broth erhood engineers, rendering them liable for conspiracy and for damages resulting there from. One of the questions referred to the board of inquiry was: "Has the Burlington & Mis souri in Nebraska employed incompetent en gineers to run its trains since Feb. 27, IHShr the date of the beginning of the strike. mis question is answered in the affirmative. with the additional statement that the strike extended in a single day along a line of rail way for a 000 miles, the men quit ting their engines without no tice, and the company had no alternative except to stop traffic entirely, accede to the demands of the strikers, or employ such men as it couli get in the emergency. It chose the latter course and men of little experience or practical Knowledge were employed for me ume, wno were superseded by com petent men as soon as possible, and the re port declares that "at the present time. May 15, it is believed the operating foree of the Burlington & Missouri River railroad in Nebraska are as competent and capable as the force which struck on the 27th of Feb ruary last' Tbe report closes with a declaration that giving to a committee the power to order a striae oi any class of kt borers is wrone; that every laborer should retain his indi vidual liberty of action, and that be inflicts a wrong upon himself "when- he submits to a power other than his own judgment to say when he shall work and when he shaU remain idle.

As to why the Cbicagisdii not finish first in stead of second it is not going outside of the record to say that it was simply because they dii not play as well against the couiptrative ly weak ciuhi as tbey did against those in eir own c.as.

Boston does not do so badlv, after alL in capturing fourth place. Last season tbe club finished fifth. But the champion De troits show a sad declension in their tumble from firrt pl.ice lat year to fifth position now. Pitthurg ends the campaign occupy ing the same sixth place that was the club's portion at the finish last year, but the 'Jonahs have an improved percentage, and their score of victories and dt-f jats is almo-t on a level with those of Philadelphia, Boston and Detroit Being in sixth p ace does not indicate much inferiority when only 44 points in percentage separates the sixth club from tbe third. Last year it was 143 points. The tail-end clul of last season are alss the tail-ends of 1S$, but the Hoosiers and the senators have exchanged positions, and the former club now finishes seventh, leaving tbe latter to the disagi-eeable distinction of marching last in the procession. Only the .New i orks can tout to as great gain as the Hoosiers in ptr.-ent- ae between the two sea-ons. The vVashmgtons have two more victories than were to their credit lat year, and their per rentage diies not fall off greatly, being now .yo against - i tnen. All around the clubs this year were better equalized m playing strength than was the case in tsN(. An evident of this is the fact thai the first and last clubs in 1S? were sep arated hy a d'ff.'rence of S4-H percentage pi lints, whereas the difference tins year is but Had Indiaimiolis tieeu a little stronger in lite pitcoin d-'partmeni, and Washington in batting, the clubs would have fini-he-d all in heap.
