In the olllce of one of tliu higher oflicials: of an eastern road a few days ago tlio character of railway employes in the different departments came up for discussion, the ground being taken that iu practically all depavtmeuts a hotter grade of men were now In service than ever before. A general man- agi-r. lo take rank :imong tlu> fore-most, must bi> a gold HiiaiK-ial as well as transportation man; u general super'.n- UMiilent must be a man well oilucati-d •and ablo to handle men without friction: a duperlnteiidi'nf of motive power must l.H> wi-11 educated, have an economical turn and a way of pushing business when minimi; CVIMI tin- passenger conductor, I lie baggage man aiiil the bruIonian must be woll educated ami .south-manly lo long huld posiliiins. anil in all departim-uts the chnracU-. 1 of I ho men is inm-li highor than years jiuo. -\n i-mployi- must, not Indulgo in ollii-ial whc started the (.-onv.M-sat.it.iii. generally and well -up in rending and wi-iilng. I'm' ihi'i-e an: but few hranchos of sorvici: wheiv llu-iv is not mure m- less of i-i-nding of orders and of wi-il- iilg. Tin: ul'.ice ol' train disp:iti.-hor h.-is boconiu an important braiu-h of ilu- S:T- vice anil tvquhvs woll-oducated nn-n. nulrk to understand orders, to halulki ti-iilns with tin- present ri-niiirKabb- i-x- eiiiption from ac-c-idi'iit. Fn-lgbl and passi-ngiT otllcials mnst bo among tho shrewdest and best odiicated men in the si-rvice; they must bo woll versed in rates, in the rules of the associations with which thi'V are connected, and quick 1o soi/.c any advantage their line possesses over a compoting one. "Taking c-very dep.'irtment." said the olHcial wlio strafed the conversation, "if a road expects vo keep iu line with its competitors it must have the best of talent at the head of the dopavunit-nts and woll informed men iu the subordinate positions." An engineer of mnln- tensinc-e of way remarked thnt the statements of the superior olficor did not apply to section men, as he thought of lato there bad been inferior men employed: on Eastern roads especially, Italians and Portuguese bad taken the places of Irishmen, who in many cases helped build the roads in the Eastern and middle States, and who were vory apt at learning the methods of keeping tracks in order, distributing ballast, etc. He supposed that this was the result oC the Italians and Portuguese working for 1)0 cents per day, when the Irishmen thought their work worth ?1.2f> ro ?1">0. As the matter now stands on a large number of roads only the foreman is competent to lay track or direct any work connected with that •department, he dictating what each section man must do. At this point another official spoke up and said la-was on a road which passed through Virginia, aiid the section foremen were now ilism.if.sing the Italians and Portuguese aud iu their stead employing colored men, who were .more easily taught what to do and who turned oft more worls and worked just as well In the hot sun as in the shade. This matter was discussed in'all its phases, aud the conclusion was tlia't to secure good men, competent to fill the di£- •fevent grades of service, it was not wise to let the question of pay become of too much importance, (is a man In any branch of railroad service should lie paid according to bis ability and the •importance ot his position, and that In no branch of service was it wise to employ a man because lie would work cheap regardless of his ability. - RAILROAD NOTES. A number of yardmastors on tbc Pennsylvania lines are obtaining the names of employes who are in favor of the gold standard with a view of or- ganizlng railroad men's sound-money clubs. A high official of the Pennsylvania road makes the statement that the company's-shops at Altoona, Pa,, are second in size only to the great Krupn works in Essen. At; the Altoona shops each month $275,000 is paid in wages. On account of the dullness of manufacturing Interests the Big Four and Pennsylvania lino stations in the Indiana gas belt are not doing more than one-half- the business they did in 1SO-J and early In 1805, and It makes a marked difference in the revenue fit such stations as Anderson, Marion, Elwood. Muncie and a dozen other points that might be named. A good-steed row is in prospect over the general passenger apents dcclliil"K to hereafter furnish free transportation to advance agents' of tlieatrlc.il troupes. The theatrical uianngers, at a. recent meeting in New York, organized for the purpose of fighting the railroad companies and, as their task is rognrdod ns hopeless, in official quarters, they will h.'ivc abundant opportunity to present their grievances. The i"--..'c'crs <'l::in: that the railroads, and -. ul.-irl.v' ih.) .Tolnt Traffic Associa- tion, 'are preventing, tliejformation^'ot; road companies because of the high, and stiff rates, and the latest action on the part of the general passenger agents will cause further hard feeling. It: begins to look as if the railroads were bent on abolishing the deadhead system. SHOCKNEY AT THE RINK Saturday Night. A J30XING CARNIVAL. Scientific.gparring: and Wrestling at the Rink.

Sullivan is to pugilism what: Gladstone is to English pollti.cs: notwithstanding he is no longer cliampiou, the til It- has descended iuto unworthy hands and there are now more "tallc figlitors" than really scientific boxers. It will bo interesting to'know that Sullivan Thinks of "Big Tom" SharUey's chances with .Tim Corbett in the match that has been arranged between tlic two raon. Sullivan was always a.good judge of form, ana his opinion miiy bo relied upon, barring the chance of accident.

For a -great many years doctors pronounced It a local disease, am'd prescribed , local remedies, and by constantly 'falling to cure -with local treatment, pronounced It incurable. Science has .proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease, and therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's-Catarrh Cure, • manufactured by F. .T.

Whenever two men get into an argument on the street, a goods box is, at once provided and they arc asUed to make a joint debate, which usually results in gather ing 11 crowd within a few minutes. 'If the agitators in Logansport would select some convenient corner, and when they see that a debate is unavoidable would retire to'this stamping ground and fight it out, the public which suffers from blockaded sidewalks would rise up and call them blessed, and might even consent to attend the do- bate.
