Th? N. C. Congressmen on Internal
A Washington letter, dated June
5th, showt what beenrred in the House
Democratic caucus in regard to the
repeal of the Internal Revenue laws:
'Since rthe action of Col. Cowles
and Col. Johnson in caucus last weelf,
the delegation ha agreed to vote for
the Mills bill, provided they are given
a fair show on the' floor of the House
to offer and discuss the amendments
intended to repeal or. greatly amelio-
pecial credit will be due to the Hon.
W. II. H. Cowles, who boldly took the
initntive and declared last Monday
night that! he would bolt the caucus
before he would bind himself not to
vote for any amendment which would
lessen in any way.any of the iniquitous
burdens imposed by the internal reve
nue system. At a later : caucus Col.
Cowles mnide a speech which created
consjderable excitement. He spoke
forcibly and to the point. He declar
ed Nlhat ho 'arbitrary ruling of any
'.Democratic caucus should prevent him
trom using his utmost endeavors to
carry out the known-will of his constit
uents. To them and to the D em oc rat
io party of -North . Carolina he first
owed "allegiance. ! The convention
which had just renominated liim had
instructed him an0w as to what his
duty was in this particular, and that
duty he jdid not intend to shirk
for any possible consideration. So far
as it was in hi9 power to effect-cither a
repeal of the whole system, or the abo
lition of the fruit brandy tax, or any
other modification of the internal rev
enue law, as it exists, itshould be ex
erted to the utmost. He demanded as
a right that he should be heard on the
floor of the House on this subject, and
no caucusj would ever bind him nol
to exercise that right to the utmost
limit. Coj. Johnson then arose and
said that Col. Cowles' position coincid
ed entirely with his own; that he, too,
would reitjse to consent to bo botnm
by caucus hctiori in a matter of such
vital importance to his constituents.
Mr. Mil s then took the floor, and en
deavored tj convince Col. Cowles that
concessions had already been nia(1e to
the North j Carolina delegation. Col.
Cowles replied to hitn firmly but
courteously, and told him it was im
possible for. him to vote for his bill
without a chance to also vote for tin
amendments which. his people. demand-
Jinieiiuiiieius w inen uks ueopit
e should be added to the bill.
change should be given to the North
Carolina delegation on the floor of the
House, and they should fail in effect-;
ing anything in this direction, the)
would theiii vote for the Milks bill, but
the attempt must be made on the flooi
of the House of Representatives. Col.
Rowland then suggested that the cau
cus should wait the action of the
North Carolina Convention, then in
session. He thought the platform, as
enunciated; by that Convention, would
be a guide to the delegation as to "what
their course should be. That platform,
to my mind, settles the matter beyond
the shadoWj of a doubt, and binds the
North Carplina delegation to. take a
strong position for every possible re
peal of thejinterna! revenue law. Col.
AlcOlam my stated at this caucus thai
he felt assured North Carolina could
be relied on to roll up a good Demo
cratic majority, no matter what be
came of the Mills bill or of the inter-
nai revenue synem. r;nce. tnis last
caucus, anu since tne adjuarument of
the htate convention at italeigli. the
sentiment of the delegation is abo t
this: The' will support the' Mills bill
if they : re allowed to give the amend
merits they desire to add to it a fair
showing on the floor of the Ho; If
theseiimendments should be offered and
rejected they arc then prepared to do all
in their power by their votes and in
fluence to Contribute to narfvh'afinonv
ami pass the Mills bill with or without
the alterations they now urge, t do
not think there is arrrinn in 'the delega
tion4 who 'will recede fronj,this position.

gular because he ;had been from earliest,
puppyhood in-our family,, and had uo
opportunity to know ianvtJiing about
other denominations. L ll'e was, never
theless a thorough; Baptist and he ex
hibited his perferncfrl for the Baptist
church in a veryj deeidfel tnanner:- 1.

and.; also for school
''Hardshells"-jjccnpied this - house
once a month, j iand the Methodist
preacher on the circuit preached in it
once a month. The relations between"
the two churches were not as cordial as
they ought to hafe been, seeing they
professed to be iiir.st-class Christians.
The Baptist did not attend Methodist
preaching, nor did the Methodists go
to hear the Baptist preacher. It was
very seldom that iany One, except Cuff,
ever went from our house to Baptist
meeting yet that dog never failed to
be present on Saturday and Sunday of
the Baptist monthly meeting, lhis
might have been passed oyer without
remark if he hnd also attended the
Methodist preaching, but he was care
ful never to pnt hisj foot inside the
door on the daj' the Methodist preachy
er held forth. My brother and 1 notic
ed this strange partiality for the Baptist
Church on the part of old "Cuff, and
wcveay strongly disapproved of it, and
remonstrated withjhini after the fash
ion of bovs with! dogs, but all our
scolding and whipping were in vain.
Cuff seemed to be, "set in his nations "
and our persecutions of which I am
now ashamed, only seeming to make
him more devout arid constunt in his
attendance upon! j Baptist meetings.
The conduct of tjie dog attracted at
tention, and he became the subject of
remark. . Some tilings-were said by our
Baptist friends more complimentary to
the dog than to h master; however,
master stood very well in the neighbor
hood. The only! point of invidious
comparison was in reference to ques
tions of theology and ! denominational
affiliation; in these matters the dog
was considered more orthodox than his
master. 2. Matters went on for sever
al years in this way. the dog still faith

lUERtsEUBQ, Penn. June C It has
always been a superstition among the
railroad men that one accident on a
niilroadf no . matter how nnnsnal the
cirapmstances connected with it nright
be, s certain to be. folio wed by two
more of a similar character in a'short
time.- The truth of this has been
noted repeatedly, bet neyer in so strik
ingj a manner as in three recent occur
rences. These three accidents were
alsof' attended b a piece orgood'for
tnne to one individual' that makes
theie Occurrences still more reraarable.
; B. Wj AViUiams is employed by a
,Nef vYork railroad as buyer of ties
and lumber. His business takes him to
various parts of the country. A fort
night ago he was in the north-western
part of VVest Virgi nia. He had busi
ness at a lumber station in the moun
tains known- as Slider's Mills. A
narrow-gnage railroad runs by heavy
gmrs ami snarp enrves into tnis j-e-1
gioii. No passenger train ever run on
this road. Williams' had intended to
go to the mills in the caboose of a
freight or-lumber train. He had tak
en his place in the caboose when he
learped that there was some doubt
abont his being able to get back in
tim to 'keep 4 an important engage
ment, and he made up his mind to
postpone the trip. The train was in
motion when he came to this conclu
sion, but he jumped off. While the
train was going up one of the steepest
grades on this road it broke in two, the
caboose and two of the cars separating
from the other cars and at once start
ing hack down the mountain. The
conductor and brake man were in the
caboose. The speed of the runaway
ears became te.riffic. and at last they
were thrown from the track. They

Hp got tjd the station just in time to
see the. ti-ain passing out. His disap
pointment was great, as he had an
agreement to meet a man in Strouds
burg on important business. An hour
orjso later his pleasure:;!, miss Wig the
train was niucn greatei' than his disap
pointment. The Pocono grade at that
place is '. A miles long, and 00 feet to
t hp milej ; The stock cars were fitted
with; air brakes, but as the train start
ed down the mountain the engineer
found that they would not work. The
train wa composed of 23 cars loaded
with caitle, besides the engine and
caboose. It ran iiway down the grade,
clearing jthe 14 miles in 11 miles. The
head; car jumped -the track, and
all; the ojhers piled after it in a ravine
nearly 1U0 feet deep. Two or three
persons qh the train were killed, and
400 cattle were crushed to death in the

next day. The train consisted of five
cars loaded with lumber, one freight

going down what is known as the

corjtrol of the train.- It dashed down
