JOHN W. McGREETT, 1 M. D. FANSLEB, > Com. PATRICK MAHOKEY. 5 A po»lilon Unflei Government. George B. Davis, who has 10 acceptably filled tb.9 position of.'prlnoi. pal of the schools at Galveston for some years put, went on a little vacation trip "down to Washington." While there he did not let the grass grow under his feet and instead of gazing idly up at the Capitol dome. as so many Washington visitors do, sought the source of 'fluenoe. He came back this week with a neat little appointment in his hat. This ap« polntment will put George in the printing house as the grand director extraordinary of the waste paper department at a salary of |1,500 per year.' He will enter upon the duties of the office at once.

Some weeks ago a very suspicious blazo broke out in the North street house dining room along about mid night which was fortunately discovered in its inclpienoy and was extinguished before any great damage was done. Wm. Wsgner the proprietor of the house suspected Incendiarism and did not hesitate to utter charges of the gravest character, but no arrests followed. Yesterday morning about 4 o'clock flames were discovered bursting from the roof of the boarding 1 house and the department was summoned, reaching the scene of tbe fire in time to extinguish the flames before damage la excess of $100 was done. The fire had started in an unused room at the rear of the upper floor, and the strong fumes of coal oil in that region of the house pointed conclusively to the means employed to help the flftines along. The floor and walls of the room were plentifully soaked with the Inflamable fluid and a new oil can was discovered nearby. Entrance had apparently been made to the room by means of a ladder from the outside as the screens at the window had been torn away. An investigation will be made and sensational developments are promised ID the case. An Independent Dram Corps. The Republican Drum Corps desires to reorganize, Irrespective of politics, as a Citizen's Drum Corps. If the business men of the city will give as. surance that they will lend their aid In obtaining new uniforms, the corps will endeavor to organize a club which will be a credit to the city and which will turn out on all public occasions free of charge. A representative of the old club will visit the business men of the city soliciting donations. Recognizing that the times are hard it is with some degree of hesitancy that the boys undertake this, but since they have been approached by numerous business men who desire them to turn out Decoration Day'and June 6, the date of the laying of tke corner stone of the new High School building they feel assured that the people will take hold of this matter. Give the boys a chance. ,Tbe Way i,a*t Night Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wayne and their excellent company entertained anothei large audience.' at Dolau's opera house last night. The bill was that popular old comedy drama, ' 'The Black Flag" and was presented in admirable style.

A press report from Chicago says: The police today arrived at the conclusion that W. A. Slmsrott, grand secretary-treasurer of the Switchmen's Mutual Aid Association, has been murdered, and Inspector Shea has issued circulars offering a reward for the missing man's body. Slmsrott's books have been audited and found to be straight, and no reason for his voluntary disappearance Is known. There is, however, another theory regarding the missing man. Persons who are familiar with Slmsrott say that for some time be has been training with a lot of young bloods of Chi., oago and although repeatedly warned by friends did not give up his wayward life. As to ihe report that his cash was found to be in goed order it is stated that Simsrott is an expert bookkeeper and could easily cover up any shortage until a thorough examl nation had been made. A great many of his friends don't believe in this theory and think that he has been killed. B. Of L, E. MATTERS. On Monday the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, by acclamation, adopted a resolution regarding the bill of Senator Walsh, of Georgia, to present interference with mail trains, declarinff: "That this convention do consider' this a pernicious bill, the purpose of .which-Is to prevent organizations from securing by the only means in their power redress for their grievances and just compensation for their services." The convention then resumed consideration of insurance, and the following officers of the insurance association were elected: President, A. B. Youngson, Mead, ville, Pa.; vice president, Louis Zalg- enfus, Clinton, la; secretary and treasurer. H. C. Hayes, Cleveland, SERIOUSLY HUKT. George Albert, a Vandalla car Inspector was seriously Injured about 9. o'clock Monday evening. Be had boarded a caboose to ride to the lower end of the yard and attempting to alight he was thrown against the scales. He was taken to his' home In a badly crippled condition and all day yesterday was not able to stand on hi* feet The extent of his injuries is ^ot yet-known. Pan Handle agent B. F. Butler of Gopdland, was in the city yesterday. Pan Handle engine 486 has been cpn'verted lato a switching locomotive. .Last Sunday the offices of the train dispatcher and timekeeper of the Michigan division of the Vandalla were moved here from Terre Haute. The Switchmen's Association has not'accepted the offer of the Evansville Business Men's Association and the general offices will be removed to Chicago. The ninth annual session of the Order of Railway Telegraphers is now being held In Denver. It Is not likely that Grand Chief Ramsey will be re elected. Lafayette Dickey is filling the post. tio.il °' foreman ef engine wipers at the Fan Handle round house in place of John Glosser who left for Swltzer- land yesterday. Tony Eelker, an engineer on the Pittsburg, Fort Wayne & Chicago has been in the employ of the Pennsylvania company for 46 years. He has been an engineer since 1856. Pan Handle engine 325 has returned from the Columbus shops where she was rebuilt. She will again be assigned to the afternoon passenger run between here and Effner. Pan Handle engine 865 wss yesterday, taken to Chicago where she will be turned over to the Western Iriga- tlon and Drainage company to which corporation she has been sold. The locomotive is a very old one and in her day was considered a big one. The traffic of the Pennsylvania company nas outgrown her however, and she had to go. There are three systems of roads which have a larger mileage than the Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania has 6.767 miles; the Chicago, Burlington & Quinoy, 7,220; the Chicago & Northwestern, 7,965; and the Atohlson, Topeka & Santa Fe, 9.141 miles. The Pennsylvania system has the advantages of being located in a much more thickly settled portion of the United States than the other systems named. Where to procure coal is a problem which the railroad? must'face just now. At this point the Pan Handle uses about fifteen car loads every day and the supply runs from hand to mouth. In order to isffect a saying all gravel trains were ordered taken off Monday evening, and all work at the Curveton pit has been stopped.'

Serious results are feared unless the operators and miners can soon come to an agreement and that very soon. East bound shipments from Chicago during the last week were 47,523 tons, against 02,856 for the proceeding week, and 52,348 for the correspond. ing week of last year. . The roads carried tonnage aa follows: Michigan Central, 4,742; Wabash, 4,610; Fort Wayne 6,053; Lake Shore, 6,525; Pan Handle, 0,316; Baltimore & Ohio, 2,509; Grand Trunk, 4,899; Nickel Plato, 5,178; Erie, 5,731; Big Four, 2,260. Tbe gathering of railway employes May 27, 28 and 29 In New York City. It is expected will be the largest convention of men of this class ever held.

Sargent, of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen; S. E. Wilkinson, of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, and D. G Ramsey of the Order of Railway Telegraphers, will speak at the first public meeting. The spirit of this convention is quite opposed to any affiliation with the American Railway Union, Chairman Welsz says, and to one or two other Western organizations principally because of the leadership of such organizations. M Sotorlety. The old house In Daviess county, where Budd Stone assassinated the W ratten family, Is now occupied by a family from Gibson county. They report that they have no unpleasant experiences. Scarcely a day passes but what one or more visitors present themselves, eager to inspect the premises where the frightful tragedy was enacted. Many bits of the trees, shrubbery and house have been car* rled away by relic hunters. The present occupants have been unable' to scour away the blood splotches on the floors, but the sanguinary stains on the walls have been concealed by pasting paper. The Races Couponed.
