The Indianapolis Journal (Newspaper) - January 26, 1885, Indianapolis, IndianaAffairs of the railways. Personal and local. E. A. Ford general passenger agent of the Pennsylvania Linea West of Pittsburg is m the City. John Browning passenger conductor on the l., x. A. & An line Las been so ill for a few Days As to Niue him at his Home. The Eastern lines last week forwarded from Indianapolis but 2,071 loaded cars As follows Beo line 975 a st & p., 047 0., h. & 1., 295 1., b. & w., 254. General h. S. Huidekoper. Of Philadelphia ., is in the City. Lie is West looking after the affairs of the Western car company of w Luxich he is general manager. The Louisville now Albany & Chicago will hereafter dispense with Tho car service. Hereafter station agents will Section men and other employees at their respective stations. The five Western roads last week brought into Indianapolis 3.519 loaded cars As follows i. & st. L., 1.170 a t. St. & g. 936 Vandalia 900 1., b. The Peoria division330 st. Louis division 183. The Wabash last night put on anew line of sleepers Between Chicago and Peoria leaving Chicago at 8 35 M., and arriving at Peoria at 6 55 a. Returning the train will leave peo Ria at 7 10 M., arriving at Chicago at 7 15 a. U. Negotiations Are pending for running the line of Woodruff sleeping cars now running Between Detroit and Indianapolis Over the Wabash on through to Louisville. Ky., Over the j., m. & l Road. Close connections would be made both ways at Indianapolis. A Pennsylvania official states Thart the receipts of the dining cars run on the Pennsylvania limited express for the year 1884 were silo too yet they yielded no Revenue above operating expenses 4i� nothing is left undone to Render the table service first class in All respects. In answer to what is the situation with East bound pools to Day commissioner Doherty said they axe resting on their arms awaiting developments. To the question you think that certain lines outside the Pool Are cutting below the 18 cents per 100 Pound rate to the Seaboard he answered i fear they Are from outside Indi cations. Anew trouble has Arisen in the trunk line Pool. Commissioner Fink refuses to comply w Ith the demand of some of the roads to have the Pool percentages evened up at the Cut rates for the time that such rates Are being made and insists that the percentages must be equalized at full Tariff rates. It would be pleasant indeed for the c., st & p., for instance to bring up its per cent of averages in the Indianapolis East bound Pool at present rates when the Bee line and the a h. & d., which is ahead in its per cents., carried the property at full Tariff rates. Saturdays business Over the Belt Road gives evidence that the Snow blockade is lifted As there w Ere 1,695 loaded cars transferred Over the Belt it being the Banner Day in the history of the Road and tiie movement yesterday was nearly As heavy. The train dispatchers on sat urday handled the trains with marked ability. During the Day fifty eight trains were handled on the single track East of the c., st & Crossing and fifty nine trains on the single track West of the i. So st. Crossing. To this move ment is to to added the trains handled on the double track by Belt Road engines. The court has ordered that the Toledo Indi Anapolis Road be sold feb. 25. This Road was begun with the intention of running it from Toledo to Indianapolis. It was constructed from Toledo As far As Findlay and there stopped for Lack of funds to carry on the work. There were boo too of Bonds issued As collateral for the indebted Ness with $300,000 of prior Lien Bonds for the right of Way. There is to appraisal of the propel to real and personal which is to be sold As an entirety for not less than $150,000. If the entire amount of the bid is not paid in Cash the sum paid must be $50,000, with the balance in first mortgage Bonds. There is Good authority for the statement that unless there is an Early settlement of the rate War the Pennsylvania people will take another aggressive step and shorten the running time of All their express trains action which they have not taken heretofore for the reason that threats were made by competitors that they would meet the Shorter time with Liwer rates. Now this is no excuse As passenger rates both East and West bound Are More or less demoralized. The bad men troupe eleven in number were taken to new York at $8 per head the agreed rate for theatrical troupes being $15.20 and the longer lines Are cutting regular rates $2 to $4. Freight business of Indianapolis lines. As would be expected there was quite a Sharp falling off in car movement last com pared with that of the week ending january 17 there being hardly a Road that was not affected in its traffic More or less by the unusual amount of Snow for Indiana that fell in the Early part of the week. And the severe cold weather which followed. Saturday How Ever the tracks were pretty Well cleared of Snow and with the Milder weather there was a Large movement the reduction in East bound rates has not As yet perceptibly in creased business but it May the coining week. Liat Little Oast bound shipments there Are goes to the Seaboard shipments to Interior Points of Pennsylvania. New York and new England be ing remarkably Light there is quite a satisfactory East bound movement of Cotton flour and tobacco a Large per cent of these Staples going Forward being for Export West bound tonnage is now heavier than at the corresponding period in 1884, and with the reduced rates which take effect to Day it promises to be much heavier. The Snow has troubled North and South roads really More than East and West lines. For two Days on several of he Northern lines freight trains were abandoned. Receipts and shipments of live Stock As Well fell o 5 largely the local live Stock traffic naturally considerably after Jan. 1, though shipments Seattle especially however should now be on the increase. Local business is As heavy As could to expected under the unfavourable circumstances attending the move ment of freights. Below we give the number of cars received and forwarded at this Point in the two week ending Jau. J 7 oud 24 Jan. 17. Jan. 24. Name of Road. / ,. Loaded Tnp. Loaded Emp. A. N. A.

The reduced West bound rates take effect to Day making the rate from new York to Indian Apolis on first class freight 47 cents per 100 pounds second class. 38 cents third class. 28 cents fourth class 24 cents special rate 17 cents. Tho meeting of presidents of the trunk lines in commissioner Finks office on Friday last is said to have been a rather Stormy Ono yet the rumours that the Pool was broken Are Nied on All sides and the new schedule would indicate that if anything the Union is stronger than Over. Commissioner Fink in conversation with a reporter later in the evening said the Lackawanna Road has been taking these new rates for some time and have now prom ised that they will not carry freight for less. Instead therefore of Liis being a cutting of rates it is a confirming of them and a strength ening of the Pool. I dont think that any of the roads can afford to carry freight for less than the new figures and 1 therefore presume that this w Eek tulle Buck ids 78 cents to wonder of the ladies.

One of the families in Clifton Cincinnati s aristocratic sub Urb. The marriage was a ease of december and May or. Von Phul being seventy four years of age and the lady under thirty. Miss Lemonde has relatives living in this City where she has often visited and where she is Well known As a lady of unusual graces of mind and person. The couple were Only wed last september and the enquirer charges that their troubles arose Over the of pure of or. Von Phul to carry out an alleged anti nuptial Promise to Settle $20,000 on mis wife. Or. Von Phul denies having made any such arrangement and the lady the article says deems herself badly treated in Conse Quence and a serious estrangement has resulted. It is shown that there Are children and grand children who violently opposed the marriage and it is doubtless one of those unfortunate affairs in which diverse family interests clash. In any event the friends of mrs. Von Phul will Dot believe that she has been guilty of any in Ladylike conduct and that her position is just should be maintained. The City in Brief. Bunion Williams said to be a deserter from Ike United states army was locked up at the station House yesterday. Or. J. E. Haskell will lecture on thursday evening next at it.

Unusual Zeal is being manifested by the congregation,.and there have been Many additions to the Church off tit furniture at hang & elder. They will adhere to the schedule. The feeling in the meeting was that it was Best for All to agree upon a Tariff that none can go below. At the meeting the responsibility for the irregularities was put on the Delaware Lackawanna & Western which executed Long time contracts with ship pers at Cut rates. The Pool regulations not allow contracts to be made at any sate much less at Cut rates. The other roads had no con tracts out they reported. The West Shore & Erie met the Lacka Wannas rates for the Protection of their business. The reports from the new York Central Pennsylvania and Baltimore & Ohio were that they had deferred meeting the Low rates until the position of the Lacka Wanna was defined in the meeting. The Lack a annals contracts could not be abrogated and commissioner Fink s old remedy of reducing the Pool Tariff to Tho Cut rates so As to place All roads on an oven footing was adopted. This really seemed to be the Only Way out of the dilemma. Will not sell tie Road. Col. J. H. French president of the Louisville Evansville & st. Louis air Liue has returned from the East and in an interview with a re Porter of the Louisville courier journal stated that the rumours that the property was for Sale have done the Road a great Deal of harm though they were absolutely untrue. Some men have fancied that they could sell the Road without authority from its owners but they have not succeeded yet. The Road has never been for Sale and is not now. Of course it has encountered obstacles like any other new Road which have interfered very much with its successful opera Tion but its owners have Confidence in its future and have at last succeeded in getting in a position to nurse it and bring it out of its troubles. In the first place the original Cost of the Road was much greater than the company had been led to think it would be and the management has not been Able to bring it out of its Early troubles though it has been doing a Good and growing business right along. The increase in its earnings during the last few months has been very Gratifying and that too in the face of serious drawbacks in the matter of rolling Stock and motive Power and if it was Well equipped now it would of ing a Large business. It runs through a Fertile farming country that will build up a first class Road and which has been of immense value to new Albany and Louisville since Tho Road was opened. In View of the financial condition of the Road the bondholders concluded to place it in the hands of a receiver in order that All the creditors might be put on an equal footing and All questions in dispute settled under orders from the court Are railway tracks affected by the wind the question was asked a Railroad Section Man on the Baltimore & Ohio Road who had grown Gray in the service by a reporter of the Pittsburg commercial Why does the West Side of a track need the most repairing he answered that for Over to panty five years i have been working on railroads Andi noticed soon after i began that More work had to be put on the West than on the East Side of the track. Lately i have been watching it closely and i find that the rails have to be replaced oftener the ballast has to be renewed much More frequently and the sinking of a track is much More noticeable on the West than on the East track. I have talked with other trackman and they have n a med the same difference in the Wear and tear of the two tracks. Not Long ago i heard a scientific fellow say that tie rotation of the Earth caused the West rail to Wear out first but i think thatus far fetched. I have a different theory of my own. I think the wind is the cause of it i have noticed that in Tho Spring and fall when the track is the softest the wind As a Rule from the East during Tho rain storms in sum mer also the winds come generally from the East. So put it Down As a Rule that the tracks Are softest when the wind is from the East Caus ing the trains weight to rest on the West rail. Then Section Boss winked knowingly and boarded a Haud car. Bostons Money sink Hole. Persons who Are acquainted with the real condition of the Toledo Cincinnati & st. Louis Road Are often amused Over the reports set afloat most of which originate in Boston papers re Garding the property which is to Day Worth Only the right of Way and what the bring for old Iron. Still there Are Boston capitalists who Are Likely to be duped into putting More Money into the property just upon such telegrams As was sent out from Chicago last week to tie effect that the Quigley Syndicate were now on top. The fact is that nobody is on top. Before the litigation which must come to secure an unclouded title ends the lawyers will not Only Havo exhausted the property but will be Calliec on parties who Are so prominent in their endeavours to recover it for Large sums of Money for service rendered. The truth is the sooner the Road is sold at fore closure Sale and litigation thus ended the bet ter for All parties. Can tie statement be True the Pittsburg commercial Gazette put in circulation a Rumor that the Pennsylvania com Pany had weakened in its resolve to give no tickets to brokers in that City. For years this company refused to allow commissions but the fact is that their tickets Are now being sold by brokers Here at reduced rates. The report also stated that Tho company was Selling under rate tickets to Chicago from Pittsburg. This was not substantiated As a direct state of affairs but it was ascertained that the company has been issuing tickets to brokers and these parties Are Selling trips to Chicago As Low As $5 under the regular rate. This will be quite a Surprise to Railroad men if it be True so Strong grounds for years have the management of the passenger departments on the entire Pennsylvania system taken against working through scalpers the Correct name for a ticket broker. Why lie tarried so Long. So Seldom it is that a division freight agent of the Wabash stops Over at Indianapolis More than one train that it has excited some com ment that division freight agent Sweet should spend four Days last week at Indianapolis. Saturday the reason therefor began to develop. He tells shippers that the Wabash must have some business at some rate. The same shippers Are it is stated called upon by agents of the Lackawanna and the w est Shore fast freight lines shortly after and the first question asked by said agents is what rate will Taxe your business one Grain merchant said saturday he dared not offer them some business at a fifteen cents per Hundred rate to the Seaboard but the Tenor of the remarks of Tho agents indicated that they would carry the business at such a rate. Miscellaneous notes. The Mann boudoir cars will be introduced on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad to Day. The plans for the Extension of the Fargo Southern to Flandreau and a connection Are being perfected. Tho surveys Are completed and work on the grades will to begun in Tho Early Spring. A Large order for locomotives has been received by the Schenectady i locomotive works from the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad and an additional Force of men will to put to work next week. Edward Ellis tie treasurer of the com Pauy says that the order is sufficiently Large to Kep a big Fox be employed until the grass is Well grown. The Erie people begin to Day to take up the third rail on the Llo nesdale Branch. This is preliminary to taking it up the entire length of the Road thus using Only the Standard gauge. On Tho Delaware division work will be finished by Jan. 1. The construction of forty locomotives will be necessary and the machine shops at Susquehanna were put on full time last week. Tho Conotton Mallov Road which has been in the hands of a receiver one year last tuesday has profited thereby. Tie record of the year 18s4 shows that the Road has been Well managed and. While the Coal tonnage and consequently the receipts have suffered from a six months strike which ended in july and from dullness in the Cleveland Iron Trade the rond has in creased its passenger and miscellaneous business paid its operating expenses and yet has net earnings nearly equal to the $70,000 which bad to to paid out for preferred claims under the or der of the court the embargo on booze. The Saloon keepers meet to devise a plan to successfully defy the Law. Y esterday was the first sunday since the order of the police commissioners prohibiting the Sale of liquor on sunday went into effect and while the order was evaded by Many the Day was much quieter than usual and the great majority of the saloons were closed front and rear. To the credit of the police be it said that they seemed to be making an honest Effort to enforce the Law. Some of the hotels ignored the order to the extent of serving drinks in guests rooms but none openly violated the Law. Superintend ent Lang has stationed an officer at each one of Morants places opposite the Union depot that precaution being made necessary by his refusal to close his doors and Early yesterday morning his bartender James Conner was arrested for an alleged violation of the Law. Some of the Saloon men deny the authority of the police to compel them to close their doors at any specified hour and claim that to to in Vio lation of the Law so Long As no liquor is sold after the time fixed. The Saloon keepers met at Caspar Hedderig clips Saloon on East Washington Street yesterday afternoon about seventy five of them being in attendance. Reporters and the outside Public generally were excluded and the doors were closely guarded by regularly appointed door keepers. The meeting lasted almost All after noon but those in attendance positively refused to disclose the nature of anything that transpired. It is generally understood and this those participating not deny that the object of the meeting was to devise and unite upon a plan for the frustration of the boards design. The Hensley Case. There were no developments in the Hensley Case yesterday and As yet no Trace of or. Deer Baugh has been discovered. The charge against the husband of the unfortunate woman has been changed from conspiring to commit a felony a to one of murder and he is hold without bail. Coroner Stratford will resume the inquest to Day and has subpoenaed several witnesses from the neighbourhood in which the parties formerly lived in Lawrence township. Or. Jeffery at the first Baptist. Or. Jeffery the new pastor of the first Baptist Church is Awakening a Lively interest in religious affairs among his congregation. Yester Day both morning and evening he preached to Large audiences. Since his coming to the Church quite a religious interest has been awakened and last evening or. Jeffery administered the ordinance of baptism to several candidates. Amusements. Orpheus and eurydice an adaptation of Offenbach has sparkling opera bouffe orphee Aux enters will be the attraction at the grand opera House to night a Largo company and a Well known cast will interpret the score. The museum will give anew Bill this after noon and evening. Letters from the people. State librarian. To Tho editor of Tho journal i see from Reading the papers the subject of who shall receive the position of state librarian is agitating the minds of the solons of our state legislature and i also observe that Shelby county has two candidates in the persons of miss Susie Ray Wilsom and mrs. Harriet Coop or wife of sex county commissioner and sex representative Edward Cooper. I cannot now recall How Many other offices or. C. Has held but i know he has shown up As a candidate at almost every county convention in Ray remembrance and lie was a candidate for the nomination for representative at the last Deino cratic primary election being badly beaten by or. Hoban the present incumbent. state and county Pride compels me to say a Good word for miss Wilson. She was born and raised in Shelbyville is a lady of unblemished character Ada ugh ter of e. Wilson who was treasurer of the county Twenty four years ago who is now living at the age of seventy five years a poor Man of High social and moral standing. He has a family of eight children who Are All making their own living. Or. Wilson is totally Blind has a farm of Ono Hundred and Twenty acres and is in debt. He was a brother in Law of the Hon. Martin m. Ray. Is the Uncle of Hon. W. Scott Kay editor and proprietor of the Shelby Democrat. The democracy of the Wilson family has never been questioned being bourbons of the rank est Dye. They have never taken sides in any of the splits in their party in this county but always sup ported the ticket As made by their party conventions. Miss Wilson is a lady of excellent sense a graduate of the High school in this City has been a teacher for the past five or six years and for the last three years has been principal teacher in the soldiers orphans Homo at Knightstown. Her appointment to the state librarianship would give the utmost satisfaction in this county both to the members of her own party and to the opposition for All would agree As to her eminent fitness for the place. J have heard that mrs. C has been Basing her plea for the position on the ground of age and Pov erty. The latter is a false plea for or. Cooper is the owner of one of the finest farms in the county with first class improvements and Money at interest whilst mrs. Cooper has a splendid property in this City which has been occupied by sex county auditor Car son for Tho past four or five years at a rental As i understand of s2o per month. So much for their poverty. But the office of librarian should not be classed amongst the charitable gifts of the state but in my judgment should be filled with an Eye single to competency and As to the qualifications of the two aspirants from this county there can be no question in the minds of those who know them and so far As party claims enter into the matter the unswerving Votion of the Wilson family to their parly is recognized in Unis Community by republicans As being something hopeless for them to contend with for it ha3 seemed to be a labor of love for them to work in the interest of democracy. We must have a Democrat and give us one we can All be proud of in the person of miss Wilson. Shelby county Democrat. Had enough of it. To the editor of the Indianapolis journal to save a Little expense and trouble All round and to Stop cards and letters from coming to me almost daily telling me where this and that Perisho lives please say in Tho journal to my Many friends that i Havo found enough to answer my purpose at least of my Uncle Joshua Peri shows descendants.
