THE HOOK ISIiANl -ARGUS. WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 28, 1889
THE DAILY AIIQUS
JOHN W. POTTER.
WeDKKSDAT. Pkptkmbkb 25. 1889.
A hw York paper suggests that ex
President Clereland he elected to fill tbe
Ute 8.8. Cos's seat la congress. Why
Gk. OoKr. of West Virginia, It in
Washington looking after some appoint
ment to compensate him for bis failure to
secure tbe gubernatorial cbair of bit
state. Tbis is a tacit admission tbat bis
contest for tbe seat was simply a bluff
game, and tbat West Virginia democrats
will not be bluffed.
Mr. Lew Bernard, one of the art ire
politicians of Cincinnati, and a Campbell
man from away back, is in tbe city. Mr.
lternard is not spreading himself all orer
the state, but It willing to back bis judg
ment so far as I Mm lit on county is con
cerned. "It will be awful for tbe repub
Meant in Ohio," said be, "if tbe remain
ler of the state gives the same demo
era tic gint that Hamilton county prom
ises. Foroker is particularly unpopular
there, and he will be cut on all bands. I
have offered to wtpcr tbat Foraker will
poll tbe lowest rote of any candidate on
he republican state ticket, and that in
Hamilton county Campbell's maj.trity
will be OYer.yuiO "

The removal of Postmaster Iluesing.
with only a year of bis four-year term
eipired, hat attracted the attention of
several eastern journals. Here are some
of tbe comments:
The change just made in tbe Rock Is
land post office is another instance of the
disregard of both law and fairness habit
ual in tbe present administration. Mr
Hawea, the predecessor of Postmaster
Iluesing. now removed by Harrison, was
appointed by President Arthur at tbe
close of bis term. Ho was nevertheless,
allowed to serve out the full period for
which he wat commissioned, and Mr.
Iluesing, appointed io 18.. bad a right
to bold his office until September.
There are no charges against bim, and
tbe purely political character of the re
moval is emphasized by the fact tbat
Harrison's new appointee is chairman of
tbe republican county committee. Tbe
fact is that such instances have of late
been so numerous aa to occasion but lit
tle notice. New York Slur.
Tbe lait batch ol postmasters appoint
ments by the president contained the fol
lowing: Howard Wells, at Rock Island. Illi
nois, vice August Iluesing, removed.
When Mr. Cleveland became president,
be found the Rock Island office filled by
C. W. Hawea, a republican, who bad been
appointed by President Arthur on!y a
few months before, bis commission dating
from July 4. 14. Mr. Hawes waa al
lowed to serve out his four years' term,
and a little more, bis s accessor not being
installed until September 13, 18S8, when
a democrat. August Iluesing. waa ap
pointed. He retained tbe employes
wbom he found in tbe postofflce three
republicans and two democrats and, as
far as can be learned, has conducted tbe
office in an efficient and unexceptionable
manner. He is an excellent business
man; has given tbe office his undivided
attention; is a director in tbe People's Na
tional bank, and some ten years ago was
elected sheriff of Rock Island county,
which was republican by 900 to 1.000
majority, by 4fi. majority, and conducted
tbe office with ability and to the general
satisfaction of tbe people. Mr. Huesing's
term would not expire until September,
1892, but be is removed in September,
HV9, without any reason except the fact
tbat be is a democrat, and tbe chairman
of the republican county committee is
appointed in bis place. Shortly after
bis inauguration Uen. Harrison was
quoted as saying tbat "we must do at
least as well as Cleveland did" in tbe
matter of allowing officials to serve out
their termi, hut be long since gave dp all
pretence of trying to do so New Yort

Chicago, Sept 25. A rear end collision
on the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific
railroad, at Washington Heights, twelve
miles from this city, at 9 o'clock last night,
resulted in tbe death of five persona and se
vere injury of a doxon others. A suburban
passenger train, while standing still, was
crashed into by a fast freight train, and the
rear coach of the passenger train waa en
tirely demolished. Those in the car who
were not instantly killed by the collision
suffered lerribly from escaping steam before
they could he rescued.
Tho Killed and Woanded.
Tbe following is a list of tbe killed and in
jured. Killed: Miss Sadie Kelly, an employe
of the Rock Island company ; Mrs. Brown,
Fred Huedner and Jay McKenxie, of Wash

1 he Collision lis-srrihe,!.
Some of those injured are in a serious
co ndition, but it is thought that all will re
cover xce4 Mulgaitev. The fatal train
was loaded w ith sidnii Imnites, chiefly resi
dents of More an Park, Washinghton
Heights, and Blue I-Jand. Tbe freight train
was running at the rate of fifteen or twenty
mi les an boor and tbe engine plowed clear
through the rear car of the passenger train
with lis twenty-five or thirty passengers,
stopping only when it retched the forward
track. Tue engineer, Setb Twombley, re
versed his engine jut before tbe shock and
jumped, followed by his fireman. Twora
bly was badly hurt. Tbe passengers in tbe
two forward cars did not realize tbat any
thing bad happened, although the entire
train was pushed forward nearly 2(IU feet by
tbe foroe of the shock.
Tho Kaglneer Drank.
Tbe uninjured passengers and trainmen
had hardly begun the work of rescuinz those
who hal not been killed, when it was discov
ered that tbe demolished car was on fire.
The dimes were quickly extinguished, how
ever, and the work of rescuing the living
and dead was resumed. Engineer Twombley
is no doubt responsible for tbe accident It
is said tbat be was drunk when he boarded
his engine, an 1 that be was drunk when
picked up, balf conscious, after he had
leaped from the cab of bis engine.

Millionaire, and Their Substance.
Washi-ioton City, Sept 25, During the
last two weeks a quiet investigation has
been maa for P. D. Armour, of Chicago,
concerning the powers of (he senate in pun
ishing recalcitrant witnesses for oontempt,
since Senator Vest was in Chicago bent on
making tbe great packer talk of the beef
combine. Mr. Armonr has nodesire to pass
a few weeks in tbe dungeon underneath tbe
lamp and gloomy walls of the capitol, and
with bis usual cautiousness has caused in

powers in such cases as that pending be

to reassure his chief that the danger is a
Justice Field's Decision.
The precedents are pretty strong! y in Mr.
trmour's favor, and if tbe little senator
Irom Missouri should d-sire to press his
Iht in tbe senate there are two decisions of
the supreme court which would be hard for
him to get over. O ie of these was that of
Justice Field, given on the California circuit,
in tbe case of Leland Si an f or. L Stanford
was called as a witness bef.ire the Pacific
railway commission end asked wbnt had
been done with lul 0 which appeared on
the books of the omip-inv as having been
paid lo him, and for whici no vouchers hat
been turmsl in. li.l you use this money or
any part of it," asked the chairman, "m in
fluencing legislation in California and Wash
ingtotit"' Mr. Stanford refused to reply, ex
cept to say that he had never bribed any
body in California or anywber. He was
placed und.r arrest and his case in contempt
brought liefore the supreme court Justice
Field decided be could not be held, and gave
a very strong opinion concerning the con
stitutional limitations of the power of con
gress in punishing witnesses who refuse to
testify. This decision is one that contri
buted Indirectly to the Terry tragedy, Terry
denouncing the decision as having been
sorruptly procured by StanfonL
The Case of Hallet Kilbonrn.
The other decision bearing on the Armour
?ae was that of Justice Miller in tbs cs
of KUboum va Thompson. Hallet Kil
bourn, now proprietor of The Washington
Capital, was some years as;o a r.-al es
tate dealer in Washington City. A syndic-ate
was formed to handle a certain deal in
which the government wss interested, and
when tbe inevitable investigation by acom
mitteo of the house came on Kilbourn re
fused to answer certain question, and was
thrown into the capitol dungeon for oon
tempt Here he remained several days, anil
on his suing John Q. Thompson, sergeant-at-arms
of the house, for damages, won hia
rase in the supreme court Tbe decision of
Justice Miller was strong and broad enough
to cover the case of Mr. Armour, and to
jive the millionaire packer good reason to
hope that he will not be compelled to read
market quotations in the bastilo.
Vest Mill Loaded for Beef.
Vest's friends declare be is still out for the
blood of tbe beef man, swearing he will have
Mr. Armour liefore tbe bar of the senate if
be bas to bring him in irons. But Mr.
Armour need not be alarmed. Vest can do
nothing without the assistance of a majority
of the senate. Tbe senate might sen 1 its
sergeant-at-arms after the packer, and if be
retused to come the officer would return for
instructiona If aa order for arrest were
then issued the sergeant-at-arms could bring
tbe nn willing witness before the senate, pro
vided he could find him, but, having got its
witness, the senate could not make him talk.
AU it could do would lie to turn tbe case
over to tbe United States district attorney,
to be by him laid ttnre the grand jury.

bas little to say in favor of the miners. The
sickness and destitution among them and
their families, be says, have been greatly ex
aggerated. He finds evidence of a senti
ment of hostility toward both mine owners
and miners among citixens not engaged
in these pursuits, because tbey did not com
promise their differences. While Mr.
Soott's pro pea Us were regarded as unfair
and insincere, there is a strong conviction
that the mines cannot be operated profitably

latter are criticised for their willingness to
live on charity rather than I accept a com
promise. Bine May 29 the relief commit
tee baa received $3,364, and baa now on hand
