A new and interesting story
of a railroad disagreement is
just now afioat. The stor is
that the Southern Railroad lias j
been delivering a good part oi
its fruit and berry business to
the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad
for transportation to Philadel-
phia and New York, and that
notified it :h:u thi.j must sioT.

deadly cure. Ex.
IS IV IiHillT?
Is it right that Elverton R.
Chapman, of N, Y., should be
confined in a cell furnished
with all the luxuries of the
Waldorf? W e answer most
emphatically no. Because Mr.
Chapman is a man in the high
er walks of life, because he
has many thousands at his
command and because he has
influential friends he is taken
to the jail, not as a prisoner,
but as a guest of die jailor.
Chapman, as perhaps all our
readers know, was convicted
lor refusing to answer certain
questions asked of him by a
Senate committe, when the
sugar trust was being investi
gated. For that reason he
was indicted and tried. The
jury found him guilty and he
was sentenced to serve thirty
days in the district jail and pay
a fine of $100,
An appeal was taken to the
Supreme Court but the judge
ment of the lower court was
confirmed. After the higher

court's decision was rendered
Chapman v;as scnt for to come
Washington and serve his
sentence. In his cell were put
the followin articles of furni-
ittire which gives an idea of the
;lIxurj0US apartments in which
!he was quartered: One brass
; bedstead with best springs and
iiinest linen sheets, one line

cooliiv his water. Hesules all
this his meals are to be served
from the Arlington.
Is Mr. Chapman any more
entitled to these luxuries than
a common prisoner indicted
for the same offense?

In addition, the currency
question seems to have been
shelved, and Mr. Speaker
Reed's House "ain't" furnish
ing the Cabinet any business
to handle. Ex-Secretary of
Lii iiLdsui y a uaici lia MIICU
to England to tell John Bull it
isn't fair for him to kill so
many seals when we want some
ourselves, and as he will set

out of the way of the Cabinet,
so then why should the Presi
dent and his official household
be so pressed for time ?
President McKinley don't

the President and his Cabinet
do not et down to work for
