Sullivan, brakeman on the Jeffersonvilie division of the Tan [landle, admits he is the party who shot John Ebbett, who is lying- in a dangerous condition at Columbus. He claims that he was acting in self-de- ense, and in peril of his life at the lime. The Pan Handle railway is making D reparations to do the usual amount of ballasting on their lines this year. Two work crews are employed at their Jurveton gravel pit, and a large num- Der of gravel cars are now being repaired at the shops for this purpose. The Pennsylvania lines are being recognized as the bsst equipped and best ballasted pieces of railway property in the United States. Seven tramps boarded a south-bound train on the Jeffersonville division of the Pan Handle at Franklin early Sunday morning, and at Edinburg the train employes attempted to eject them, and there was a fight, in which car- pins, pistols and knives were used. Arno Yates, head brakeman, was dangerously cut by Homer Waggoner, one of the tramps, he receiving six different wounds. The tramps remained in possession, but upon reaching Columbus the battle was renewed, and it resulted in John Eobett, one of the gang, receiving a pistol ball in the face, the bullet knocking out several oE his lower teeth and lodging in his neck. The wound is thought to be fatal. Indiana,polis News: Superintend- ant C. M. Bennett, of the Chicago division, Pennsylvania lines, is at work on a contrivance that he is sat- satisfied will solve the problem of burning natural gas as fuel on locomotives. He has been studying the question for several months, and believes that he caa run an engine with natural gas for twenty-four hours without replenishing the fuel. On the trial trip he will have the floor of the cab covered with Brussels carpet and the engineer and fireman will wear dress suits. If Mr. Bennett's contrivance is a success—and Bennett is pretty near a winner in anything he undertakes—it will be a revolution in the running of engines and lessen the expense at least SCO per cent. Many of W. F. Black's friends are now asking him why he ever gave up a position with the Pennsylvania lines to take one with the New Monon. Black is a successful railroad man. and as Superintendent of the Louisville division Pennsylvania lines he had a sure thing, with a certainty \ of promotion. "The Pennsylvania company does not hire its men," said an official, "it makes them. Promotions are very slow, but they are sure, and it takes a great deal to displace aa official when he grows up in the service. But most young men are ambitious, and can not resist a high sounding title even if the salary is not great. So it was in my opinion with 'Billy' Black. It was a pretty nice thing to be general manager of a railroad instead of a division superintendanl, aud he took the position that Dr. Breyfogle offered him at $12,000 a year. The place lasted just one year. I suppose the Pennsylvania people would take htm back if there was an opening, but they won't make one for him." Mr. Black, however, has two offers, one from a Vanderbilt line and one from a Florida road. \ A Probable Suicide. Dr. F. B. Thomas, of Winamac, in a fit of despondency on Saturday, thrust a pair of scissors into his abdomen, and will probably die. Dr, Thomas's skull was fractured in 1887 by the bursting of his gun, since which time he has been in failing health. He has served in the Legislature, and until disabled by injury he was one of the leading citizens in this section of the State. Dr. Thomas has many friends in the city, being, before the misfortune which deprived him of a portion of his reason, a frequent visitor in this , city and a man in whom the most implicit confidence was placed. His sad condition is universally deplored. Attention, Salesmen!
