There nro ninny interesting facts con
cerning the great Uurhngton Btriko which
Imvo never been given to the public , unu the
tiuo history may as well ho written now us
nt any other timo. Outho27tli of last Feb
ruary ! W2 engineers peremptorily quit work
on the routes of the Chicago , Burlington &
Qulncy railroad company. On the tiimo
duto 283 Ill-omen also quit their posts , and
then tlio brotherhood of Engineers ! and
have sustained them. Since the
date on which the strike practically com
menced the authorities of the road have em
ployed 40(1 ( engineers , known as "scabs" the
world over , ut n iruarautcod salary of $4 per
day ; tlmt is , the o who wore employed im
mediately following the 27th. Schedule- pay ,
liotvovor , iras resumed on the 20th of May ,
when men tvuro paid in accordance with
schedules In effect prior to the date
of the strike's commencement. Pilots
were sent with engineers Unacquainted with
the roud nt least two round trips , but they
wore not used regularly nnd no duto can bo
given when they were done away with. Dur
ing March' , lt > 87 , switchmen joined the
"brotherhood of strlUcm. " When questioned
as to the cause of their striking they re
mained in dignillcd silence. They gnvo their
cause Into the hands of the engineers nnd
llrcmen for safe , keeping , ami there are. no
records to show a faith not kept. The Ib-bt
cuards from outside thu stuto arrived at
McCook on the morning of February ! W. It
is well , porhap.s , to denominate those guards
I'inlcortou's ' detectives , for they nro better
known under thin name. There were 'M )
men employed to guard the companies'
property , ninety dt whom were members of
I'inliorUm's police force , mid thirty wcro sec

Huarn in ns deputies or special policemen ,
This can also bo Bald of uu men from out-
sldu'thu ntuto with the exception of throe ,

liUtory Is authentic. The Uurllngton au
thorities will not deny its truth. U will dote
to bear In mint ] tlio large number of en
gineers employed In excess of the striking

Old Time Elections in Now York.
Brooklyn Eagle : Dr. Howard Crosby ,
taking an optimistic view of the ad
vance of civilization , says : .
"Whon I was a boy , elections in Now
York lasted three days and always
meant a riot. A decent-looking man
couldn't get to the polls. Now you can
go und cast your ballot as quietly as if
buying a ribbon in a Broadway store , "
In the Eagle of this date you print
the foregoing , with the suggestion that
there may bo in it "something of exas
peration. " As , at the time referred to ,
Dr. Crosby and I wore both school boys
and near neighbors , I can vouch for the
( aot that , as descriptive of the particu
lar locality in which wo both lived ,
there is no exaggeration whatever in
his statement , though ho probably errs
in supposing that the state of things
which he saw in his own vicinage was
general throughout the city. The Cros
bys lived at that time in Monroe street ,
near the screw doclf , in the old Seventh
ward of Now York. This was a ward of
evenly balanced politics , as likely to go
one way or another , and it was a fam
ous lighting ground.
The polln were opened near the river
front , and wore usually surrounded by a
mass of longshoreman nnd roughs of the
democratic persuasion , who made things
very uncomfortable indeed for the
wings. There was then but one polling
place in each ward , and in ( tensely
populated wards like the seventh three
days wore no'more than enough to got
the votes in. There was no police to
speak of , a few superannuated "Char
lies" or "loathorheads , " or special de
puty sheriffs , stood around the polls ,
but at the lifdt onset of a crowd of the
"indomitable , " armed with shillalahs ,
they Hod with all the precipitation that
their feeble limbs permitted.
Tlio whiga wore in those days sneered
at as the silk-stocking party , and any
solid-looking citi/.on chid in the black
broadcloth then in vogue and not
known as a democrat , was presumed to
bo a whig , and found the way to the
ballot-box a very hard road to travel. I
well remember that at one hotly-con
tested election Bill Harrington , the
famous lighting man , soloctcd a small
but most effective corps of pugilists ,
and in the afternoon of the third day
led them in a charge upon the oh-
struotioiiibls , and speedily opened the
way to a battalion of wings , who had
boon vainly struggling for days to got
Suoh'aro the scenes which pro Font
themselves to Dr. Crosby as ho looks
back on the past , nnd if they were not
general they were repeated in bcvoral
other wards , notably the "Bloody
Sixth. " Hero the contention ran BO
high that the arsenal in Centre street
was stormed on the last day of ono elec
tion , and the arms were distributed for
defensive purposes. The militia on that
occasion had to be called out to sup
press the riot.

Philadelphia Record : "Keep to the
left" is the direction for engineers on n
few railroads in this country , but with
tlio great majority nil trains use the
right-hand track , It is tin English
adaptation , but has not mot with profes
sional favor in the United States. On
the Reuding'ti lines some confusion is
caused by the fact that certain trains
use both systems in different portions of
their runs. Whatever lie the explana
tion , there nro onlv n few double-track
lines in the United States which copy
the English system. Among the number
are tlio Lake Shore , Reading main line
nnd the Old Colony. When the Penn
sylvania road secured its Amboy. divi
sion the practice on that route was for
trains going eastward to take the north
ern track , but in order to secure uni
formity throughout the system the rule
was reversed. The English system in
vogue i on the main utom of the Heading
road is not used , on any other lines of
that company. It was not so long tigo
that on the road to PotUvIlle the tracks

Williamsport express coining down over
the Reading road keeps to the left hand
track until Bridgeport is reached.
There it crosses tlio river to the Phila
delphia and Norristown division , , pro-i
ceoding the re t of the way on the right
hand track. It is said that this prac
tice is decidedly perplexing to engi
neers. It is urged by the advocates of
the loft hand rule that the English sys
tem is the best because the engineer
then has nn unobstructed view of both
tracks us lie bits on the right huud side
of his engine.
l-'or the other side it is claimed that
in the matter of the various signal po.st-j
where the tracks are near together
there is hardly room between , and it
becomes necessary to place them on tno
outer side of the track. Unless the en
gineer is on the same side with his sig
nal ho luiB disadvantages to contend
with , and the safety of his train is not
so well secured. There are further ad
vantages when the engineer is passing
a signal tower and needs bomclim.03 to
have an unobstructed view of tlio opera
tor. It is sometimes the ca&c that owing
to the physical construction of the road
there are dangerous pointu which have
to bo avoided , if possible , by the heavi
est tralllo , and that is a factor that baa
to be considered. Moit engineers , how
ever , seem to regard the problem as in
volving little of the practical and de
pending for its .solution largely on the
eccentricity of railroad managers. The
great dogidoratum is that there should
bo uniformity of practice , as engineers
nro constanllv passing from ono road to
another. Wlioro systems differ they
