NonconformUt.l Two weeks ago the Nonconform ist called attention to some of the good work being done by Popnlists in Washington. As we proceed in this direction, more and more comes up to the credit of our faithful band in Congress. The Nonconformist pleads guilty to a lack of that ener getic newspaper effort that should appear in every well regulated Pop ulist paper to magnify the good work done by our representatives. The old party press uses its best en deavor to hide what is done by Pop nlists and magnify the work done by their own partisans. We should learn .wisdom from their tactics and let our people know what our rep resentatives are doing. It is with shame that we review the past win ter and see many Populist papers not only refraining from any favorable notice but actually engaged in un just and bitter criticism of those rep resentatives. Such action is doubly disastrous. It withholds the truth from the reader who wants to learn what his servants are doing, and when he is heartsick from lack of good news, be is made woll-nigh frantic by the uniust attacks of the only newspaper he takes, and the tendency is to make him lose faith in mankind; lose respect for all organized effort, and look forward with forebodings to the time when red-handed war will drench the land with blood. Such is the fruit of onr careless neglect of duty toward onr standard bearers. The Nonconform ist has not in the past indulged in criticisms of those representatives, but hereafter, we do not propose to ignore their work. Several of them have sent us kind acknowledgements of the brief recognition given to their efforts "and the more we exam ine the work being done, the more we find to commend. We have had many letters commending the speech es as published in this paper, of Congressmen Howard and Vincent, Several papers have copied those speeches and the demand is increas ing for this information. The Non conformist hails with delight this turn of affairs, and if we shall cuc ceed in rousing some of the old-time enthusiasm in the boys we shall be well repaid for the effort. We are pleased to have been the means of bringing these speeches U the no tice of our press brothers, and they are invited to continue in the good work of scattering abroad the good news, from any source obtainable, of the work being done along dis tinctively Populist lines in Congress. Carrrying out our threat to expose the actions of Populists in Congress, we will begin right here with some of the "trouble'' made by Senator Butler. The principle of the Refer endum is a distinctively Populist doctrine, and on December 22, last, Mr. Butler introduced the following resolution (No. 34G) in the Senate. ' Resolved, That a special com mittee, to consist of three Senators. be appointed and hereby instructed. through a sub-committee or other wise, to it quire into the feasibility of applying the principle of Direct Legislation through Initiative and Referendum to the legislation of the Federal Government, and to report to the Senate at this session, by bill or otherwise, the results of said in quiry; and that for the purpose hereof the committee be authorized to sit in the city of Washington, or any other city of the United States. and employ such clerical aid as may ' oe necessary 1" lhe resolution failed of adoption at that time and Mr. Butler is mak ing another effort now. The ad vantage derived by such an inquiry is very evident. It is an expensive and lab rous task for a man at his personal expense to investigate the history and working of the system of the Initiative and Referendum, but when public omcials shall nave ac cumulated at public expense the needed information, and we have it in public documents ready for our use, we can all appreciate the value of the labor. This Mr. Butler is trying to do. Again Mr. Butler has introduced the following resolutions in the Senate during the present ses sion: ' No, 71: "Resolved, That the Sec retary of State be, and is hereby di rected to send to the Senate any in formation in the possession of the State Department, or which may be hereafter acquired, relative to the nature and operation of the various postal savings bank systems now in operation in other countries." No. 90: "Resolved, That the Com mittee on Postoffices and Post-roads be, and they are hereby, directed to examine and report to the Senate as full information as practicable con cerning the nature and operation of postal savings bank systems now in operation in other nations: and further to report whether a postal savings bank system can be success fully and advantageously put in op eration by this Government. That said committee shall have power to prosecute their inquiries through a sub-committee, which may sit during the recess of the Senate at such times as may bethought necessary." No. 9G. "Resolved, That the Postmaster General be, a id is here by, directed to send to the Senate the reports received by the State Department in obedience to a circu lar sent by Secretary of State Blaine on May twentieth, eighteen hundred and eighty-one, to the consular rep resentatives of the United States in strnctingthem to obtain from the severel foreign governments; certain information as " to the practical workings of postal telegraphs and postal savings bank in operation in such countries, which reports were referred to the Postoffice Depart ment; also any other report or in formation from onr consular repre sentatives pertaining to the same subjects which have been referred to the Postoffice Department: also oth ft information which the Postoffice Department has or maj hereafter receive relative to the nature and operation of postal telegraphs and postal savings banks in foreign countries." ' It is here seen that he has called li t. " . puDiie expense vi an ins miormaiion obtainable by the Secretary of State, by the Sen ate Committee on Postoffices and Post-roads, and by the Postmaster General relating to the operation in other countries of Postal Savings Banks another distinctively Popu list measure. When this informa tion is obtained and laid before the Senate, the Populist members will be in possession of the material with which to fight for that measure, and will present for the public in the form of earef ally prepared speeches, the facts that will cost more to gath er than the purse of one man or sev eral men could stand. Thisfwork done and being done by Mr. Batter is one of vast importance, but this is not all nor even a large part of the "mischief in which he has been en gaged. Laet week we began for our readers a speech made by the Sena tor from North Carolina. It is con tinued this week and will be con cluded next week. He has here plunged the knife into one of the festering ulcers that no Senator hes heretofore dared to expose. He has marshalled an astonishing array of official evidence to show annually there has been voted away without any valid excuse more money in fa voritism to a few railroads than the annual deficit in the Postoffice amounts to. In other words, he has shown that the Postoffice Depart ment has been self-sustaining, but that through connivance of officials or through personal favoritism enough money has been voted awa to railroads with a "pull" to make a considerable deficit in the Postoffice Department. The money went for "Sound Money" campaign expense and the "dear people" thought they were paying to keep up the legiti mate expenses of the postal service. Read the speech on first page and see how the railroads have bled the people. The good influence of Mr. But ler's work has not stopped here, but the information given by him has startled the public conscience and hit the "pocket nerve" the most sensitive one in man's anatomy and such prominent, and able men as Judge Walter Clark have taken hold and are using these facts to still further enlighten the public. See Judge Claik's article on first page of this issue of the Typographical Journal. He has also written for the Arena, and others are engaged in similar lines, so that Senator But ler's efforts are being felt very wide ly. We are about to keep up this "ex posure" of the actions of Populists in Congress so that Populists every where may know that they have as brave a Spartan band In Congress as ever represented a noble cause. CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR KILLED. PEOPLE A Terrible Wrack on tho Ghlcaco and Northweatern B. B. About Forty Fer ae na Dead and Injured by Bear-End Col llaion. Chicago, June 30 Three persons were killed outright and about twen- y or thirty persons injured in a rear- end collision on the Chicago and Northwestern road at West Chicago, birty miles out of Chicago, on the Galena division. The victims of the collision were Christian Endeavor delegates, who eft Chicago last night en route to the great convention in San Fran cisco. The colliding trains were sections Nos. 4 and 5 of a Christian Endeavor special sent out in nine sections, beginning at 10:30 p. m. Section No. 5 ran into section No. 4, which left Chicago fifteen minutes ahead of it. Section No. 4 carried the Wisconsin delegates, nearly 500 strong, and in the rear sleeper were people from Fon Du Lac, Greenbay, Appleton and other Wisconsin cities. Section No. 4 had come to a stop ast outside of West Chicago, where the Freeport line diverges from the main line. Section No. 5 came up behind at great speed, and the shock of the collision was terrific. The passengers in the two rear sleepers of section No. 4 were all in their berths. They received no warning. and those not killed outright, awoke to find themselves jimmed in the wreckage. TWO KILLED; SEVERAL INJURED. Indianapolis, Ind., June 30.

J II. although the Knn ehAna t But brightly on the fertila fiM. mA splendid mansion of Col. Dinwiddie, there was little of its sunshine in the heart of its owner on that May day, fifty years avo. With a paper in hand, near sunset, he sat out on bis front veranda, looking dreamily and moodily ahead at a sloping wheat field across the Dike. How Wntifni it looked! How the recent rain a haul brought it ont. filling meshes these chaff thatched grana ries with the product of the sun and soil! Near, the big poplars in his own yard lifted their red &n1 yellow wax blossoms to heaven or showered them on tbe blue irr&a carpet below. A hundred sweet fra grances filling the evenins- air. hundred homely sounds fell on his ears. Among them, and dearer than all others, was the occasional whinney of a stately matron in the paddock beyond, disturbed for a moment because her own suckling had strolled off to caper and play mimic racing with some other mare's degenerate offspring. "My faculties are peculiarlv acuta this evening," said the master to himself, or else I am a rank coward, unable to stand misfortune. I never saw the old place have such a charm before," he continued half aloud. "T don't mind giving it qd so mneh nn my own account, but Anne" "What! fathert" answered behind him, a voice lull of 'sweetness. "Did you call me!" and a beautiful girl stepped out from a bay window and 1 a - - layiog ner nands affectionately on his shoulders, reached over and plav- uiiy Kisseu mm. With their faces thus totrether. it would not require a close observer to see the striking resemblance be tween Anne Dinwiddie and her ather Left motherless at an early age, Anne had found in one parent all the loye and affection usually given by two. Nothing could ex ceed the colonel's tenderness and af fection for his daughter, and noth ing Anne's pride, love and admira- ion for her father. Perhaps her ife with a masculine mind had given stronger tnrn to her own. instead of the feminine cast and; romantic play that might have been expected under other circumstances. Or,-per haps she inherited it from her father a strong, firm man himself or the girl was known as much for her practical sense and firmness as for her matchless beauty. This eve ning,, in her baby-waist gown of white muslin, cut low-neck and short sleeyes, her auburn hair gracefully coiled behind a shapely head and tucked in with a large mother-of-pearl comb, inlaid with srold. her face aglow with a silent happiness which bespoke another love within. tbe girl was divine, and her father drew her to her old place on his knee for though nearly twenty she was to him the little tot of two years the same he wept over in her crib the night after her mother was aid away forever, and the first grief of his life came to break in on his ambition the ambition "to breed the best horse that ever lived on the best farm in Tennessee." The colonel was a man that spoke to the point, and of few words. In his daughter he found a mind in which his own sought help and ad vice. All his business was known to her. Even many of his breeding problems he had tried to solve with her aid, and it was no little, for "she had pedigrees and records at her tongue's end, and knew the great horses of the past as mariners did the stars. ' "My child," said her father, blunt- y, "I haye gambled once too often; am afraid I ve ruined us," and he ooked away across the wheat fields. An expression of pain came over the girl's strong face, but she said nothing. This one question of gam bling on horses was the only one on which her father and herself had differed, and the look she now wore showed that at last had happened what she always feared would hap pen. At length she asfeed: "How much is itt" "Forty thousand dollars" his eyes still on the distant fields. "Can you pay itV in a tone which showed she was more afraid of her father's honor suffering than of be ing left penniless herself. "Not unless I sell the horses "Then sell them," came the quick answer. "And the farm," he continued. "Let it go, too." "My child," said her father, as he rested his eyes steadily on her face, "of course 1 shall if it comes to the worst, but but " and he caught himself stammering like a school boy, as he gazed in the sweet, hon est eyes of his daughter "Anne, there is another" he stopped again, with a look of positive annoy ance on his ciear-ent face. The twi light shadows had fallen, the lamps were lit in the hall, but still the father broke not the silence. Cur'pony! Cur pony! Cur' pons !" came from across the meadow, as the stable boy stood in the pasture and called up the yearlings for their evening meal. Around the corner of a ' neat cabin a sprightly vonng negro was picking a banjo, accom panying the deep, rich notes of the instrument wim a voice in perfect attune "Ahoo a, an' er-who-ah ahoo-a, an-er-who-ah ahoo ahoo," sounded the voice on the still even ing air, and the echoing strings of me banjo repeated ahoo ahoo!

Bat 'tis your privilege to hear and my duty to bear the message from Capt Sid ney. A few days ago he asked me lor my permission to approach you on a subject." ' The gir sprang up, her face crim son, her sjyts ablaze. "Your permission, father. He had better.get from me some token of at least a partial consent for him to ap proach you on such a subject! Per mission, indeed! Father, I hate tbe man!" , V.M7' mj m7r 8aid hr fther. half laughing, half astounded, "but I never saw you so stirred up, my darling! Why, Sidney has been here every two or three weeks for a dozen years, is twice your age, and has ac tually seen you grow up and has never made any secret of waiting for you. Rich, handsome, jovial and actually worshids you! I thought you two were fine friends." "Father! father!" exclaimed the girl, "you do not know me! As your guest and friend' I endured Capt. Sidney and treated him court eously. But do you think a girl has no heart, no ears, no eyes! I have disdained from maiden modesty to tell you before, what your question demands of me now. Would you have your daughter wed a man whose excesses have even reached the ears of as unworldly a maid as It Am I to be won by a man merely because he is your friend and is 'rich, handsome, jovial and worships me,' as you say! I do not love him that is enough! Ob, father!" she said with sudden impulse, as she seated herself in his lap and took his face in both her hands and laid her face against his, "did not my dear mother love you? You know what I mean how I mean!" and tears rolled down from her brown eyes. "By the eternal, yon are right!" said the Colonel, as he arose hastily with a trace of emotion in his own voice. T U.J '. tL. 1.4. -M lL.il The scamp!" he repeated half aloud. "I like him myself, out what am If Only a gambler! He is another a gentleman yes, a gentleman but a gambler for all tht! And his ex cesses in other directions whew! Annie!" he called, as he kissed her and) started into his room, "you are right always right always right. I hadn't thought of that," and the door closed on his form, a trifle bent, Annie thought, as she sank in a chair and wept from sympathy for her father. But there never was a girl like Annie Dinwiddie. Tears did not stay with her long. She dismissed the captain with a contemptuous sniff as she vigorously wiped her red nose and eyes, and then sne fell to thinking with her practical little mind to find a way to help her father. Throwing an Opera shawl over her head and rounded shoulders for the air was chilly she sat silently rock ing and looking up at the stars Presently the big gate at the pike shut with a bang and a few mo ments later the rhythmical feet of a saddle horse played a tune as they pattered up the gravel walk. On came the horseman till the animal reached the portico where sat the silent figure in white, when he shied suddenly to the left. The ease with which the rider retained his seat showed he was accustomed to such antics from his horse, and the dex terity with which he pressed a knee in the animal's chest and whirled it about face with a twist of a firm hand, made the girl's eyes sparkle with excitement. In a moment the rider had bounded o'er the railing with: "Hello, Anne, is that the way you frighten off your beauxT Sit out here in the dim light with just enough white about your head to frighten their horses to death, and haye them plunging all about over your white pink and forget-me-not beds!" "Jim J Jiml How could you?" laughed the girl, as she arose and shook his hand. "Didn't I tell you uauu Ii lUUUL'UL Ul lOSI you should not come over to-nighti As Uncle Jack, the carriage driver would say, you are a positive 'nues sence,' " "O. Anne," he said with boyish enthusiasm, as he drew a chair up close to hers, I just eouldn't stay away. I have thought of yon all day. 'Jim Wetherall,' said the old gentleman when he came into the lower field, where I was looking after the hands plowing and let them all go down to the spring for water and waste an hour idling just be cause I was thinking of von. Jim Weatherall, if you ain't in love you are just a lunatic, and that's all. Why the mischief don't yon look after your business And is this the way you let them run corn rows over a hillside, with such a fall as to make a gully the first hard rain that comesT" "After supper I saddled Troup, and thinks I, 'I'll just ride over and look at the light in her window.' 15 at you may never speaK to me again if the rascal Troup didn't tnrn in the gate before I knew it, and here I am. And, oh Anne." he said, if you only knew how I love yon " But Jim's mouth was stopped with a hand over it whieh he proceeded to kiss, to it's fair owners chagrin for she immediately withdrew it and gave the kisser a rap on the head with the other one. "Jim! Jim! Don't be a goose," she said- "You don't know how sad and worried I am to-night," and she proceeded to tell him all her father's troubles. Jim and Annie had been play mates from early youth. The boy. though really a man now, had never concealed anything from her not even the fact he always had and JJa wotld love bet. Anne had laogned at bias ia her liitfrtr ti: had helped him in bis stadiet as be IT" np for she had sassy ad vast- ages oyer Jim. whose father was as noaest and well-to-do farmer. Tbe boy, onder her isflneaco, had even gone io rouege and tnesagid to graduate, bat was noted more for bis hard horse aesae. as they called it, and his frank honesty, than for any great leaninr toward tbe clas sics or any diplomatic ersditton. "Tbe only classie I wast.; he said to Anne after he came back home, "is you. When I think of yon. Anne." he said "I see all the god desses and nymphs and uutni of old. You seem to mm like ono of thore Grecian temples I read of, with pillars so statelv and vrr. thing so perfect. Yon seem to be long to another age, so d ffcrent from mine so far away, and sweet aad dreamy, and hieh above no. and for which my goal yearns. O, Anne, can't you love mf " And Anne would laneh and toll him, "Sfavbe, Jim, some day." And the big fellow would be satiiSed and glad to be allowed to see her now and then and bide his time. "Forty thousand dollars is a big snm to owe," said the now thought ful Jim, when Anne had told him all and Jim knew by tbe way she spoke that she was silently weeping. Then she said softly: "Jim, who could bave.taken such an advantage of fathtiT Perhaps it was fair as far as gambling pmi. Jim, but you know how honorable and fair father is. and and I've heard those kind always lose in the erd, you know, Jim." Jim was silent. "Must I reallv tell you, Ann"" ho said at lesarth. "Weil, it is none other than Capt oidney." "Oh, Jim!" said Anne, in aston ishment, "how did you know!" "Never mind." be said nuietlv.

Oh, Jim, if yon can help us I never will forget " "Anne!" he said, catching her hand, "God knows I wonld die for you or the colonel, either. He's been the kindest, best friend I ever had. He's a gentleman every inch of him and you, oh, Anne, I would die if you were out of my life! But." he said, suddenly checking himself, "please forgive me this is no time for that. What a goose I am!" After pause: "Anne, I'm going now. My head is too full of a plan I have to talk longer. A calamity such as you have mentioned would simply wreck yours and the colonel's life and mine, too," he added, slowly, "if your's was. We all have a chance some time in life to show what we're made of," he continued, "and now is my time. And I am go ing in heart and soul. I'll show you I'm no feather-bed friend, but one who can love in prosperity and love harder in adversity. Oh, Anne," he said, growing excited, "this fact is as old as the stars: That tbe feath ered and plumaged hero' of occa sional prowess is worse than worth less in the battle of life and the true standard of measurement. There are a billion of miles and a million of dead worlds between him and the unassuming actor who does bis duty every day just because it is bis duty, a. a ae a. - wnemer ne feels like it or not. and regardless of the fact that no crowd is looking on to applaud with a brass band. Nothing," he said, earnestly. in the moral world is so cheap as a good intention, and nothing so sub lime as the unassuming act. I don't know what I can do but. Anne, 1 11 try, for your's and the colonel's sake even if you marry another. Don't cry" for Anne was crying softly "but good night. You will hear from me again," and the brave fellow was in the saddle. "Jiml" The horse-was spurred up close under the balcony. "Jim!" And the golden head bent over the railing, till the red lips touched his ear, and the smell of her per- fnmed hair seemed to the bewildered Jim like the glory of tbe fragrant locks of all the goddesses of ancient Greece. ' Jim.dearJim! I-I-think-I love you now. Goodnight!'! And she was gone, while Jim sat in mute silence and inexpressible happiness, looking up in the eyes of two stars that twinklnd above where her own had just been. And looking, Jim wondered whether he was really alive on horseback, or was only a spirit of joy winging its way to the two stars which shone above him in the place of Anne's eyes. A moment later Troup, his saddle horse, became convinced there was no spirit there, for he felt a vigor ous thrust from anything but a spir itual foot in his side, and be bound ed away in a gallop.

This. too. ia aetto af the fact that the interstate mo. meree commission is divldod oa the question of pooling, aad also ia spito of the fact that the trunk liSe pool case is now before the 8apresse court, and beeee the pooling bill might be onaidered as an at leapt to anticipate the decision of that tribunal which was foreshadowed ia the trans-Missouri eases. The Mta- ators who have been obieetin? to this Qibeard of SDoed in ttaaaiae a. bill for the relief of tbe railroads of tbe country have at least unearthed bat tbey believe is the reason for tbe haste. There is a story sflat, which has not yet been denied, to tbe e feet that when tbe great railroad corpo rations were appealed to for funds to help carry on the last eainne,iii sy were at first rather slow. All the arguments advanced bv Mr. Hanna as to the danger to the eouo- ry of tbe success of tbe silver move ment and tbe danger to the railroads themselves of giving power to men ho openly opposed all aggregation of wealth were in vain. Toe big railroad corporations of the feast apparently by some pie concerted move declined to contrib ute at all unless they eoold make terms. Those terms were said to be tbe passage of a pooling bill saeh as tbey detired. Whether this story is rue or not, it is a fact that a mem ber of tbe interstate commerce com merce commission made tbe charge direclly at a meeting of tbe Senate committee on interstate commerce. and it was not denied. He declared that the present haste to pass a pool ing bill was a direct result of a cam paign bargain." (This. "indecent haste" was ex posed by Senator Batler in bis re cent speech in the Senate in eon- treating the refusal of Congress to ubmit an income tax amendment and the baste to set aside tbe anti trust decision by the passage of a pooling bill Ed.

Mr. lliTLxa. I had iatendedod to peak at some length this morning opon the reeolatioa. and to show that direct legislation is the eesoaeo of democracy aad that oar rotroaoo. tetive form of goverameat might bo improved aad broagbt nearer tbe people by the application of tbe methods of direct leeislatioa knewa as tbe initiative aad re fere ad a sa to Federal legislation. I interned t. show how tbe ancient riebt of ttoti. tion eonld be made effective by tb iaitiative how a given per eeat f tbe voters eoald by petition rota maod Congress or tbe legislature to beed tbeir petition. I id tended to show how through the referenda a a eettain per rent of the voters coal J demand tbat a law passed by Cos gross or the legislature deemed to be oppressive or grossly najast I sub mitted to a popular vote. I intended to enumerate a somber of laws passed by Congress and the various State legislatures wbicb tbe people would now repudiate aod re peal if tbey had the opportunity to East upon tbem. I intended to show ow the referendum wonld destroy the pernicioos inflaenee aod efforts of tbe trust aod monopoly lobby that infests legislative balls and too often iaflaeoeia the people's repre sentatives to vote for measures against the public welfare. I in tended to show how the system works in the Swiss Republic, and how in a modified way it is now em ployed to a greater or leas exteot ia nearly every Bute in this eoooUy. And finally I had intended to show that the principle of the initiative and rsferendnm eoald not be op posed by any Democrat who indorses the declaration of Jefferson that tbe people are capable of self-government, nor eoald it be oppoeed by any Republican who holds to Lin coln's idea that this should be a gov ernment ot tbe people, by the peo ple, and for the people. However. I shall not take the tine of tbe Senate this morning to disrass these matters, bat will bs content that the resolution be adopted and go to me Committee oa Privileges and Elections. I will reserve my re marks until the regular seeaioa next December, when the committee named in this jreeolation makes its report. I do this, ia view of tbe dis cussion on yesterday about efforts being made to delay the tariff bill, in order that tho Peoples Party mar not be responsible in the least for soeh delay. I am noxious for the Republicans to past their tariff bill and have an opportunity to start op tbe promised wave of prosperity. l ask that the resolution be acta 1 upon now. Tbe ice PacMDEXT. Does the Senator from North Carolina move that the resolution be referred to the Committee on Privileges and Elec tions Mr. Bctler. No, Mr. President, be reeolatioa instructs the com m it- tee to inquire and report bow far the principle of direct legislation can practically be applied to Federal legislation. The Senate must pass the reeolatioa in order to instruct tbe committee to do this work- I ask that tbe reeolatioa be now adopted by the Senate instructing the com mittee to make the report.
