TliO Latest Railroad Ktinior ,
Several railroad mec haVe boon In the city
this week and through ono ol thorn comes
Information of important changes in the
Chicago , Burlington & Qulncy management.
The news comes direct from Chicago. Th < 5
informant asks to have his numo suppressed ,
tout his" connection with prominent railroad
officials la the west Is such as to entitle his
Btntcments to b ltof ,
"I notice that your Mr. Holdrcgo hat
been called to Chicago. Do you know what
that means ! " ho asked.
Tgnoraneo was plodded by the listener and
tlie speaker urged to explain.
"General Manager Stonn of the Chicago ,
Burlington & Quincy has bocn called cast
and General Manager Holdrego of the B. &
M. wont to Chicago last Saturday to act la
Mr. Stone's-placc. Mr. Stone's resignation
hat been requested , and ho will probably
tep down and out during September. Prcsl
eat Perkins accompanied him east , and the
presumption Is that there will bo a directors'
netting to provide another berth for Mr.
fKoue. Mr. Holdrcgo la slated for the posi
tion of General Manager of the 'Q. ' Gen
eral Superintendent Calvert of the B. & M.
Will bo advanced to Mr. Holdrcgo's position
The Burlington officials Will probably deny
thin statement , but It Is true. The directors
nd stockholders of the * Q' arc alarmed at
the IOSBOE following the strlko. Mr. Stona
lias prevented a settlement of the trouble.
The engineers-are' friendly to Mr. Holdrogo ,
gnd it is believed that under his management
.terms can bo made for declaring the strike
Thogentlcirian was plied with doubUand
\Vhens aud whys , and added this statement :
"Of course nothing is absolutely certain
until it has come to pass. Mr. Stone has
been given to understand that his resigna
tion would bo acceptable , but ho may be able
to bring poworfnl influences to bear nt court
U he decides that ho wants to stay. Ho is a
relative of Mr. Forbes , of Boston , chairman
of the board of directors and the heaviest
Stockholder in the 'Q. ' The Forbes influ
nee has kept him in his place for a month
past despite the clamoring of other holdings ,
excellent reasons exist for the belief that Mr.
Forbes has decided to make the change .but 1
Is within the range of , possibility that Mr ,
Stone's visit may niter the decree. ( Messrs
Perkins and Stone were called cast early
last week. Mr. Holdrcgo was directed by
President Perkins to go to Chicago and no
4 general manager of the Chicago , Burling
ton tc Qulucy system during Mr , Stone's ab
aencc. I understand that on account of thi
tckncss of his father-in-law Mr Holdregc
dld'not get away until Saturday. Ro Is nov
in Chicago and signing orders as general
manager of the 'Q. ' ' He knows of the elc !
ration In prospect for him if Mr. Stone fall
to soften the hearts of the 'Q1 directors
You must not ask for my sources of Infer
nation or use my name. You may make an
. .Item of this or not , Just as you please ; but i'
"you do don't crawfish in the face of the inev
liable denial until there has bcon time fo :
the developments. "

streams are terribly swollen. In tnnny places
they have overflowed thblr banks and flooded

pend operations. An Italian laborer was ro-
jtorted drowned.
At Greonsburg the great rain loft many

At Jeannette , the Sollora-McKea glass
works are almost entirely under water , as
ore eighty or moro .houses. The towns of
Larlmor. Shafton , Irwln , Pcnn. , and Manor

Inhabitants are living iu the upper stones of
their houses.

CHICAGO , August 82. [ Special Telegram
to Tun BBK. ] Umpire Cusick failed to put
in an appearance for to-day's Maroon-Omaha
game , and Miller , of the Omaha * , took his
place. Miller forgot that ho wasn't playing
boll with hit team. In tbo eighth- * do
clslonn wcro o unfair that the Maroon * lost
heart and so lost the game. Flvo of the six
basns on balls oft Spraffuoshould have been
strike outa , and three of the four strlko outs
credited to Kennedy should have boon bases
oti balls. The Maroon * earned the game and
it will undoubtedly bo protested. Never be
fore has a crowd shown such anger during n
Chicago ball game. It hooted , yelled and
howled. It wa * openly charged that Miller
stole the gatno for his team and that ho
meant to , Sprague pitched a strong1 game
and deserved to win. The Maroons gnvo
him nn errorless support up to the eighth ,
when they lost their nerve and hope because
of the rank decisions. The same teams will

Second Day'aiJVfoetlitR of the Northwestern -
western Breeders' AHHOclntltm.
CirfCAGO. Augrtn S3. Two thousand per
sons were present nt the second day's mcot
Ing of 'tho North western Broidsrs' associa
tion. The track was hard and fast. The
first event WAS for the $2,000 stakes for
horse * In the 3:37 : class. It brought out a
good alzcd field. The favorite , of course , was
the Rochester surprise , who brought 9.V )
against f27 on Seymour Belle , $0 on the
Jones mare and $13 for the rest. Jack's back
ers had no reason for regret , as ho won thrco
heats right off the reel. Belle wa * his only
dangerous competitor , and In the second
heat Budd Doblo Just succeeded In getting
him under the wire ahead of Belle by a
scant nose ,
The second race was for the 3 :18 : clftss of
pacers , for a purse of $3,000. Ed. Annan and
Roy Wllkes sold for $31 and (35 , re
spectively , while the flold brought $13.
Raven Boy took the first and second
boats with ease , and bo became a hot
favorite at 930 against Ed. Annan , who
brought $20 , and the field , which sold for
$15. The next surprise took place in the fol
lowing thrco heats , when Harry Z. , who was
not Hupposed to bo In the race , won as ho
pleased. The second heat Was made In 3:15 % ,
and was productive of a rattling finish be
tween Raven Boy and \vilkos , the eventual
winner of the race finishing fourth.
The third event was interesting only for
the last heat , which was trotted in 2:20 : at
0:45 p. m. Sally Cossaclt and Diatonic were
the only starters , and the race proved a snap
for , ho mare.
Sandwiched botwoert thcso events was a
trot against 3:40 : for a- cup byGirfluc. She
made it in 2 :
To-morrow will bo tuo great day of the
mooting. Clingstone and Prince Wllkcs will

After leaving Grosse Point the Thurnian
party had nn experience which will probably
not soonbo forgotten. Twenty miles of
rough sailing in n little steam yacht made an
enlivening evening. The staunch llttlo ves

two hours and a half the canal nt St. Clalr
Flats wait reached , and from thcro on smooth
sailing was enjoyed. The party was wel

Tfturman enjoyed the trip greatly and seemed
not at all Inconvenienced by the storm.

In Pine Grove , n beautiful park that lies

which a largo crowd awaited the oxorclsos of

mostly men , wnro present when the chair
man called the meeting to order , but several
hundred moro came up during the speech of
Judge Thurtnnn , and all united in the ap-
pltluso that was given the speech and speaker.
Mr. J. G. O'Noil , of Port Huron , introduced
Judge Thurmnn , and in doing so made a neat
comparison between the "Grand Old Man"
of Tingland and the "Old Roman" of Amer
ica. Judge Thurmnn was greeted with a
burst of applause from the crowd. After
the people fiuiotcd down ho spoke as follows :
The following Is Judge Thurman's ' speech
at Port1 Huron this afternoon :
Ladles and Gentlemen : Will you allow
mo to keep my hat on ? Of course : certainly.
I am afraid that tills cold north wind might
do mo some harm if I went bareheaded ,
and although I am willing to uncover my
head before the people , still I don't want to
brcalc down at the beginning of the campaign.
( Voices , "Keep your c.ip on. " )
My friends , this Is the first time in my
lifo that I have had the honor to speak in
your city. I have bcon invited again and
again , but have novcr been able to accept any
invitation before this. I esteem it a great
privilege to bo able to address you to-day.
( Applause. )
It Is not necessary for mo , before I pro
ceed , to speak of the president of the United
States and his administration in moro than n
very few words. I defy any man who nas a
rpgard for tuo truth to say that Grover
Cleveland has not made a good president-
of the United States. ( Applause. )
A brave , intelligent , level headed ,
noble man , bo has had a clean and upright
and successful administration , [ Applause ,
and a voice , "Hurrah for Cleveland. " ! Four
yours ago ho was elected. In the canvass
that preceded his election his opponents pre
dicted all manner of evils in case ho should
succeed. Ho did succeed , and pray what has
become of their predictions ! Where is the
ruin that was to follow the election of Gro
vcr Cldvclandl Where is tha disgrace that
was to follow his elect Ion i On the contrary
the country has been moro quiet , more peace
able , moro prosperous than it has been for
many years that have gone by. [ Applause. ]
Now I know the man ; I know him woll. I
tell you , my fellow citizens , that a moro up
right and wise man I do not believe dwells
within the limits of the United States [ ap
plause I , and ho has a noble band of counsel
lors around him , and not the least among
them is that distinguished citizen of your own
state , Mr. Dickinson. [ Great opplause.J
Cleveland knows not only how to rule him
self within the limits of the constitution , but
ho knows tull well bow , to ohooso good con
stitutional advisers.
Now , rny friends , having said this much
about the administration let mo proceed to
that question to which I have alluded , com
monly known as the tariff question. I presume -
sumo that there is not a person within the
sound of my voice who does not know wlmt
Is meant by the tariff.- And yet it may aid
us to-day if I glvo a clear and prcciso defini
tion of what the tariff is. The tariff , nly
friends , is nothing In the world but a tax
a tax levied by the general government upon
every article of commerce that comes into the
United States , mid that is intended for sale
within her borders * and which incidentally
raises the prlco , and therefore becomes a tax
or burden , upon every article of domestic
manufacture of Hko nature with these which
pay a tariff tax. Now we have at this mo-
ruont , according to the lastadvlceslhavoseen ,
about $115,000,1)00 surplus revenue ; that is ,
taxes collected from the people beyond the
necessities of the government. Those $115-
000,000 are lying perfectly idle in the Vault
of tho-treasury of the United State * . Thej
are of no service toanv human beingdntwirR )
no Interest , earning no profits , but taken
from the pocket ot the people , where they
properly bokmgr , and whore , if they wort
now found , thousands and tens of thousands
and hundreds of thousands of people of the
United States would put them to good use
and hnprovo their condition aud prosperity.
Now tlm democratic party says that this is c
wrong condition of affairs ; that that mono ;
onfthfruottobe , Hko the talents of the mar
we tire told of in the sci iptures , buried in the
ground ; that this is a vary poor use to make
of the money ot tha people , and therefore th <
democratic party sayn that this surplni
revenue which , is produced in the main bj
these tariff taxes ought to bo reduced , anc
that the taxes should bo reduced so that tliii
surplus will not continue to accumulate
[ Applause. ] Our opponents , on the othei
hand , say it is better to lot tha surplus ac
cumulate. It is- bettor to tnko moneyfron
the packets of the people. It is bettor to pil <
it up in tha vaults of the treasury department
mont , although it docs no good what
tiocvor , und It is a great harm
It is bettor to do that thai
touch tha tariff laws ol thcso Unltoc
States , Wo say , on tha contrary to reUevi
the overtaxed people is to roducu tha taxes.
Wo say that the way to treat the people
honestly , fairly and wisely is to take nc
tnora taxes out of their pockets than the
government actually needs for its expondl
The issue , then , is fairly made up ootwecr
us ; , Ills bgtuecu high , taxation on tuoom
baud and reasonable taxation on the other
It is between taking tha money of the pco
pie out of their own control , their own pock
cts , and burying it in tha cellar of the trcas
ury department , or It Is between leaving tin
inonoy where it belongs , In tbo pockets a :
tbo people , to bo used by them as their want !
require and aa their Intelligence and honusti
d'rect. ' Now , my friends , in the long polltl
cal llfo that I have led I have heard a grea
many falsa pretenses preached to people , i
great many intended to deceive am
delude them , but In all my Hf <
1 have never witnessed such audacit ;
as I havo. noticed this year on tha part of tin
advocates ot a high protective tariff neve :
before.It seems- that a singular dtsregan
of truth , has suddenly afflicted tliein , I d
not wish to call the people hard names ,
have al ) my llfo endeavored to keep a clvl
tongue in my hood , and I moan to keep it a
long as I live , but I do say that some peopli
sometimes do lose their senses so that the ,
con not see tbo truth , and often , unfortui :
fttoly , can not spcuk It. Now lust think of I
for ono moment , Wo are told that a big
tariff makes the country richer , as if it wer
' i possible to make a country rich by oppresi
ivoly taxing Its people. [ Applause. ] Ain1
that a new way to make a man rich to ru
your hand into his pocket and take ou
what you find , there , and that wit )
out any just reason whatsoever for doln
ol Isn't that a singular way to make an :
body rich ! ( Applause. ) And yet that 1
precisely tbo plan that the people toll us I
the plan to adopt to enrich , this country
That this country Is to bo made wealthy b
taxation. Again , they have the uda <
ity to lay that this tariff tax Is not paid by
the consumers ot the article which Is taxed.
Why , if the consumers of thcso taxed articles
do not pay the tax I would Uko to know who
doesl Do thcso protectionist orators pay It t
Do the manufacturers pay Itl Who pays It.
If Iho pcoplo who consume the articles that
nro taxed do not pay it ?
Now , my friends , If you will reflect for a
moment you will sco that It is necessarily
the case that tariff taxes are paid by the con
sumers of the articles which are taxed , and
ot all domestic articles of Hko kind which
nro manufactured In the United States , for It
Is a curious fait , and ono of the worst things
about this tariff tax , that whllo the govern
ment gels $1 resulting from the tax , the do
mestic manufacturers got f5. [ Great choor-
Thn amount of dutiable goods Imported
Into the United States in the year 1S 7 , for
which wo have any returns , were In value
150,325,023. The tariff duties collected were
t212.OJ2.431. There wore , therefore , In that
single year taxes levied on the United States
by the operation of this law of $113,0:12,424 : ,
which wont Into the treasury of the United
Stales. Hut that , as I have told you , was the
least part of the burden. The domestic man
ufacture of thosamo kind of commodities
amounted in that year to | 5H < J.l.570,11)1. ) That
Is , In other words , to $5,309,000,000 , and
as Iho prlco of those goods was raised by the
tariff In nearly equal proportions to the prlco
of the goods that wcro Imported Into the
country , the amount which the pcoplo paid
In those high prices of what they had to buy
and had to use amounted to about 11,000-
000,000 , or flvo times as much as the tax re
ceived by the government for the use of the
government. In other words , the whole
country was taxed about $1,000,000,000 for
the benefit ot a oomparatlvnly small portion
of the country. And that Is ksald to bo Jus
tice ; that Is said to bo fair play ; that Is said
to bo for the benefit of the American people.
Why don't they carry out this principle )
Why don't they , when they llnd In Port Hu
ron a lawyer 1 think I may name them be
cause I am n lawyer myself when they find
ono , the proceeds of whoso profession don't '
afford him and his family comfortable sup
port , why don't they tax you all for his ben
efit , so as to protect him ? Or , when they
find a doctor whoso income is not sufficient
to support him or his family , why
don't they tax all the pcoplo of
Port Huron In order to ad'l to the wealth
of that doctor ! And so on , with everything
elsd. Why don't ' th'oy do 111 The principal
general fact Is that this tax ( Hero the
speaker was Interrupted by the cheering and
applause which followed hisproduclng a ban
dana handkerchief. )
Well , gentlemen , this n good , honest hand-
korchlof. I would have bought It a good deal
cheaper if it had not been for the tariff tax ,
[ Great laughter and prolonged cheering. )
Now there nro men who say that the con
sumer don't pay n tax. I Imvo said that that
is a most audacious assertion , and I huvo tried
to show that ho must necessarily pay a tax.
Thcso gentlemen who are howling around
about tuo benefits of protection and the ruin
that the democrats are bringing on the coun
try , toll you that this thing which President
Aithur recommended only so lately Is nothing
in the world but free trado. They nro moro
afraid ot frco trade than they are
of rattlesnakes. They are terribly
alarmed lest they should bo bitten
by free trado. [ Laughter. ] Well ,
now , so far from this being frco trade , the
most sinking thing about the Mills bill is
that It Is the most moderate reduction of the
tariff duties that has over boon attempted in
this country. The average duty levied under
the present tariff was 47 per cent , nud under
the Mills bill the average would be only about
40pcrcent a reduction of only 7 percent
upon all commodities , taken together. Of
course , there nro some things upon which the
duty was reduced more. For instance , the
duty is taken off of a number of articles
called raw material , which are used by manu
facturers in their work , in the fabrica
tion of their products. . . And ns they
rceivo this great benefit of having their raw
materials free , or with comparatively small
duty , the bill Wisely provides that the
articles manufactured by them , when
brought Into the country , shall pay a lower
rate of duty than they did boforo. But that
is nothing more than a compensation for tak
ing oft the duty from raw material.
Now , my friends , there is another thing to
which I wish to call your attention. They
say , all at once. ( I say all at once for it is a
very late doctrine ) , thcso advocates of pro--
tcction are all at once seized with a wonder
ful solicitude for the laborlncr man of this
country , and they want a high protective
tariff , not to benefit the capitalist ; not
to benefit tha monopolist ; not to benefit
the1 manufacturer , according to their state
ment. Ho Is the man they seek to protect.
And how nro they going to protect him !
Why , they say that a high protective tariff
will bettor his condition. Give htm moro
wages , higher waged. I would Hko to know
now that can bo. t would Hko to know how
taxing the laboring-man aa everything from
the crown of his head to the sole Of his feet
is going to enrich him. ( Laughtor.and ap
plause. ) Yet this is exactly what this tariff
taffiff tax does. It taxes him on what ho
wears ; on that cap I put on my head to keep
it warm. It taxes him on his shirt , on his
necktie , on his underclothes , on his coat , on
his vest , on hla breeches , on his stockings.
on his ooots , on everything , and
yet they say that this is for the
benefit of the laboring man. My frinnds ,
that Is a very bold-faced statement if thcro
over was ono In thoworld. But there Is an
other thing about it. How is lie to get thcso
high wages ? Why" , he is to get them because
his employer , the capitalist or the monopo
list , will make moro money , and therefore
can afford to pay his employes higher wages
than ho paid them before. I agrca that ho
could ; I agree that it increases his profits ; I
agree that ho might , having these Increased
profits , pay his laboring men moro than they
word paid boforo. Hut does ho do it ? That
is the question. ( Applause and cries of
No , " "No. " ) Did you ever know
him to do it ? ( Crle * of "NO , "
"No. " ) The tariff lias been raised
again and agaltrand again it was Immensely
raised by the tariff of 1S61 or 1SG3 ; I forget
which of these years It was. It was raised
in a few years again , and it has bcdn raised
again and again , and I havcrnevei' been able
to find n manufacturer or a capitalist who.
upon the raising ot the tariff , baa increased
the price paid to Ills laborers. If there was
such a case it has escaped the attention of
Congressman Hatch of Missouri was the
second speaker of the afternoon , and he ably

tion , especially devoting himself to the effect
of the tariff on the agricultural interests.
