AND HOW IT ST.Vr.TLEI) TUT. PEOPLE.
A HonctJnlo correspondent of the Phila
delphia Times says:
The successsul application of eteam 113 a
motlvo power on railroads lias nlwaya been
dated from the trial of Stephenson's "Rock
et," Ericsson's "Novelty" and the "Sanspa-
reiV unil the "Perseveranco" locomotives of
various and fingular pattern, in Liverpool
orra'heron tho Liverpo! and Manchester
railway, October 14, ISii'J; whilo nsn matter
of fact tho idea was demonstrated to bo iv
graud success in a then wild and isolated
part of the United States more than two
months before tho trial above mentioned
was made. On the 8th of August, 1820, the
first locomotive lhat ever turned 11 driving
wheel on a railroad in America was run at
Honesdale, on the newly finished road that
connected the Lackawanna coal fields with
tide-water by way of the Delaware and
Hudson Canal, This road was the first of
any commercial importance ever built in this
country, and brought intopractic.il use tho
economical system of inclined planes nnd
gravity locomotion which lias sinco been
adopted by engineers wherever practicable.
Up to the lime of the completion of this
gravity road over tho lofty Moosic range of
mountains separating the valley of the
Lackawnxcn from the Lackawanna there
were but twelve miles of railroad in opera
tion in America. Threo miles of tiack had
been laid in 1828 between lloston and the
Quiticy granite beds, for the more conveni
ent hauling from the quarries of tho slouo
intended for tho Hunker Hill monumeut.und
the coal mine at Summit Hill, Carbon cnuu"
ty, Ph., was connected with the Lehigh riv
cr with nine miles of railroad, ou tho in
olincd plane system, operated by mule pow
er, in 1S2S. The railroad over the floosie
Mountain was sixteen miles in length, Car
boudalo being the mine terminus and Hones
dalo the eastern terminus and head of the
canal. It was the result of the enterpri-o
and persistent efforts ot Maurice and W'll
Ham Wurlz, of Philadelphia, who were the
pioneer cjal operators of tho Lackawanna
Valley, having labored from 1815 in devel
oping tho resources of the rrgion, in which
year they made tho first attempt at introdu
cing anthracite iu Philadelphia by ruuntug
it on rafts frocvTie headwaters ot tho Wal
leupaupack creek, thence by the LackawaX'
en river to the Delaware, thence to Phila
LOOKINU TOIt A MAT.KT.T.
The beginning of operations in the Lehigh
Valley, possessing easier and much cheaper
meaus ot transportation, turned the uttcn
tion of tho Wurtz brothers to New Yorkus
their prospective market, and the Delaware
and Ilndiou Canal and Railroad, in its day
the most stupendous engineering project
supported by a private corporation ever un
dertaken, was the result. At the time this
road was completed railroad building was
just beginning to awaken interest among
capitalists. The first enterprise of tho kind,
the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, in
England, had beeu for sometime in process
of construction and was approaching com
pletion, Qeorge Stephenson, the father of
steam locainoiives, was bringing to bear
upon tho managers of tho road his most tell
ing arguments in favor of the introduction of
steam as tho motlvo power upon the road
Ills interesting experiments with his ma
chines had attracted attet tion in this couu
try, and pending tho decision as to whether
steam should be introduced on the Liver
pool road, John It. Jervis, chief engineer ii
tho construction of the Delaware and Hud-
eon Canal, sent Horatio Allen, his assistant
to England in 1S2S to examine into th
merits of steam as applied to railroad trans
portation. Mr. Allen was n young nian.but
gave promise ol the brilliant career as
civil engineer mat loiiuweil, llo was con
vinced that Stepheuson's ijfa was destined
to revolutionize all branches of commerce
and, relying on his judgment, tho canal
company, through Mr. Jervis, cotnmifslon
ed him to purchase three locomotives fo
use on tho pioneer railroad in America,
Oeorge Stephenson was nt this time busy
in prepariug his subsequent famous engine,
tlio "Rockett," for the coming trial of steam
urlcbines on the Liverpool road, tho man
agomcnt having decided to adopt the power
against strong onpos tion aud having olTered
prices for the most successful locomotive as
to speed and draught capacity. Mr. Allei
was consequently unable to procure his ser
vices iu the construction of the locomotives
wanted In America, and he made a contract
with l'oster, Rastwick A. Co., machinists,
of Stourbridge, lo build the machines. Th

In May, 1820, the ship John Jay deliver
ed the first of these locomotives in New
York, It was taken lo tho yard of the
West Polt t Foundry, at the foot of Reach
street, where Mr. Allen put the engino to
gether. It was blocked up so that its wheels
cleared the ground, and its machinery set in
motion by steam that waf generated over
flro made from anthracite coal out of the
ines the cirs from which tho engine was
Intended to haul. The enclne was exhibit-
1 nt tho foundry for six weeks, and was vis
ited by curious thousands. It was a sin-
gular looking machine, as ono who remenv

four wheels which wero connected by side
rods. Vertical cylenders 011 each side of
the rear end of the boiler communicated mo

itli the fide rods of tho driving wheels by
thcr long iron rods. Tho engino was lit-

hero it arrived on tho 23rd of July, 1S29.
It had been tho orlgual intention of the
company to open tho railroad nud caual
and celebrato tho running of the locomo
tive on tho Fourth of July; but it was Im
possible lo get the work all ready by that
time. Kverything was In readiness by Au
gust 8. Mr. Allen had set the locomotive
p and it was on the track, ou tho compauy's
coal docks. This primitive railroad track
consisted of hemlock rails, eight inches by
ten in thickness, placed four feet three inch
es apart and spikid to hemlock ties, with a
space of ten feet between them. The tim
er had not bceu well scasoued and having
been laid lu the Burumcr the rails wero
arped and twisted out of nil regularity by
tho time tho locomotive trial was to be
made. Resides this, after running ou the
coal docks for same distance the railroad
turned westward by a curve of thcateniug
radius and crossed tho Lackawaxen river on
slender hemlock trestle, nearly 0110 hun
dred feet in height. The locomotive, it vtas
found, instead of weighing four tons, as the
contract stipulated, weighed seven. When
It was placed on the track tho Impression
becune general lhat it was too heavy to be
borne by the hemlock rails over the trestle,
ml Mr. Allen, who had taken his place at
the throttle to direct the movements of the
first locomotive in America, was earnestly
mportuned by many prominent cilzens not
to attempt the trial. Mr. Allen was well
nware of the great danger that attended the
trial under the circumstances, but as he af
terwards said, he felt that railroads wero
destined tobeenmo universal in transports-
ion and that locomotives would be the pow
er that was to make them nseful. The pride,
herefore, of having tho distinction of being
theengineer who pulled the throttle and di-
ectcd the energies of the first locomotivo on
the omtinent of America overpowered his
senso of dinger, and ho declared ho would
mako tho trip, let the consequences be
hat they might.
THE TItlAL TrtlP.
Honesdale, now 0110 of the wealthiest and
handfomest boroughs iu the State, was then
ut three years out of the wilderness of pine,
hemlock and laurel that covered its entire
site when the canal was commenced. Phil-
p Hone, ex-Mayor of New York city, and a
patron of tho canal enterprise, gave it its
auie. Its population was but a few hun
dred in 1820, but every ono of these hun
dreds was out on the 8th of August to see
the novel liial trip of the "Stourbridgo
Lion," as the locomotive was called, from
the place of its manufacture and tho picture
f a fierce lion's head, painted in red, ou
the front of the boiler. The entiro farming"
population of the surrounding country was
dsoout in firce. An ancient Queen Aune
cannon had been purchased in New York to
salu'o the pioneer locomotive on its trip. It
was to this cannon that the dale of the trial
trip was perpetuated, as there is no record
of the event in any of the canal company's
After stenniing up the locomotive, Mr.
Allen ran it backward and forward along
the coal dock for a fow minutes. Ho then
iuvlted sooio one from the assemblage to ac
company him, but no one could be induced
to go. Pulling the throttle-valve open the
engineer shouted "Good-by" to the crowd
aud went dashing away from the village,
rouud the abrupt curve and over the shak
ing trestle at tho rate of fifteen miles an
hour. He ran the locomotive for several
miles up the track and then a bridge across
it was too low to ajlinit the tall smoke stack
beneath it, nnd returned to Ilonesdalo nud
was met with the shouts of the populace and
tho booming ot tho cannon. The first sa
lute fired by the caunon was premature, and
the gunner, a man named Alva Adams, had
his arm blown off. He was taken to Dr.
K. T. Loseo for surgical treatment. When,
a few years ago, tho dato of the running of
the Stourbridge lion was disputed by public
prints, and the honor of running the first lo
comotive was placed elsewhere, the books of
Dr. Losey were hunted up. Thero the entry
was found under date of Augusts, 1820, of
servico rendered to Alva Adams, who was
wounded, as above stated, In ono of tho
ledgers of tho late Jason Torrey was also
found tho entry under date of August S,
1829. "Tho locomotivo Stourbridge Lion
was run to-day. Alva Adams had his arm
blown off by a premature discharge of can
non," This cannon did duty on all occasions
of public rejoicing or patriotism iu Hones'
dalo until 1877. When the news of the ac
tion of the Klectoral Commission in seating
Mr. Hayes was received in Honesdale tho
cannon wna taken to tho summit of Irving
Cliff, a high ledge east of tho village, where
the Republicans intended to celebrate the
occasion by firing a hundred guns. At the
first discharge tho cannon was blown into no
one ever found out how many pieces, for
only a few fragments of the gun were ever

After the trial trip the engine was attach

satisfactorily on the docks, liut, while tho
locomotive was a succcess as a loeomotive,
the railroad was of too slight construction to
enable It to be used, J he expeufo of adapt
ing it to the weight of the locomotive being
too great to bo considcrered for a moment at
that early day, and in the straitened llnan
clal condition of the company, the "Stour
bridge Lion" was placed in a shanty on the
dock, where it lay for years a prey to neglect
and decay, Its boiler was finally taken to
Carbondale, whero it has been in constant
use in a foundry ever since aud is good to
day. The pump was taken by a "boas" on

samo fate, one being brought to Honesdale

That Credit Mohlllor Story
now bomh or oun l'unLio men iiecasii:
Mr. Garfield was, like Illnlno nnd Colfax,
badly smlrcho J by the Credit Mobillcr In
vestigation, The Credit Mobillcr was a
joint stock company founded In Paris, No
vember 18, 1852. tinder tho lead of the
brothers Kmile and Isaac Pereire and on
tho principle of limited liability for a trans
action of general banking business, to facili
tate the construction of public works nnd to
developlnatloual Industry. On the model of
this company the title of "Credit Mobiller of
America" was adopted by a joint stock com
pany organized In May, 1SG3, with a capital
of $2,fi00,0(i0. In January, 1809, the char
ter having been purchased by a company or
ganized for tho construction of the Union
Pacific railroad, the Btock was Increased to
$3,750,000 and afterwards rose to a great
value, paying enormous dividends. In 1872,
in tho courso of legal proceedings in Penn
sylvania.respecting the ownership of stock,
it appeared that several members of Con
gres, Including James A. Garfield as well
as Vice President Colfax, wero unavowed
stockholders. This caused a great political
scaudal, as it had often beeu held to be
highly improper for a member of Congress
to be pecuniarily interested in a corporation
tho profits of which might bo largely and di
rectly aflected by his vote on bills concern
ing it. The fact that a presidential canvass
was in progress, In which several of the per
sons implicated took an active part, added
interest and excitement to tho subject: The
result was n congressional investigation in
the session of 1872-3. In 1873 both tho sen
ate and the house committees made reports.
When the houso commltteo said In their re
port that none of the congressmen implicat
ed suppoed "that he was guilty of auy im
propriety or even indelicacy In becoming a
purchaser of the Btock," tho public read the
exculpation with incredulity nnd amaze
ment. The public was astonished and con
founded when tho committee went on to say
that "had it appeared that these gentlemen
were aware of the enormous dividends upou
their sto:k, and how they were earned, we
could not acquit them." Tho eyldeuce had
shown that five or six members of Congress,
including Garfield, had owned Ciedlt Mo
biller stock, that they had purchased it of
Oakes Ames, had received enormous divi
dends oi' It nd had resorted to subterfuge
to ouceal their transactions. As Ames
was judged guilty of bribery and thought to
deserve expulsion (or selling the stock in
this manner to these congressmen, the pub
ltc could not understand how ono of the par
ties to these corrupt transactions could be
guilty, like Ames, and the other parties, lite
When Oakes had been ceusured by the
house, February 1S73, Mr. Fernando Wood
offered the following resolution:
llcsohcd, That tho house absolutely con
demns the conduct of Samuel Hooper and
Henry L. Dawes, of Massachusetts; William
D. Kelly, of Pennsylvania; Glenni W. Sco
field of Pennsylvania; Jamen A. Garfield
and John A. Bingham, of Ohio, members
of the lloiue of Representatives, inasmuch
as they become interested in the Credit Mo
biller of America, a contracting company for
tho construction of the Union Pacific rail
road, nnd continued to be so interested at a
timo when said torporatinn was dependent
on tho legislation of Congress for its mainte'
nnce and support.
Mr. Samuel J. llandall made tho point of
order tuat resolution of censure should bo
confined to one individual.
Tho speaker sustained the point of order
and stated the reasons for the ruling.
Subsequently the house, mainly by a par
ty vote, relus2d to take any actum against
Mr. Garfield. The New York World, ou
February 2S, lSb'3, commeutiug oo this ac-
tlon editorially, said: "The tenderness of
the house towards its offending members is
ono of tho most alarming signs of the times, It
confirms the prevalent impression that great
railway corporations and other monoyed cor
porations are omnipotent in controlling leg
islatlve boJies.tliat members of congress,like
members of tho state legllslaturos, are the
llling tools of great corporations which
ave money enough to buy them. The most
prostrattug blow ever struck at popular con
fidence in legislative purity was dealt yes
terday by the action of tho houso in screen,
ing its members from deserving punishment.
The great question of the immediate future
is the emancipation of Congress and the
State legislatures from the corrupting influ
ence of great corporations."
Ever since that time Gen. Garfield has
restod under this imputation, and uo full
defense to the charge has ever been made.

Somo months ngo two women re
turning from a visit to Bosnia, where their
husbands are garrisoned, wero murdered In
tho woods near Staab, in Hungary. The
murderers wern nrrested nnd could not deny
their crime,but they did not confess tbo mo
tive, which is unknown to this day. One of
the ruffians died In prison before the sen
tence was spoken. The other was sentenced
to be hung. A week ago tho execution took
place, and it was carried out in public, great
crowds eager for something uncommonly
horrlblo surrounded the scaffold, Tho mur
derer's name was Tabaks, and he belonged
to tho lowest class of the country population.
When the cord was already round his neck
be expressed his desiro of addressing the
nubile, and began saying with an emphasis
worthy of an orator: "Idle willingly, but,
my dear ladies and gentleman, "Hero the
executor interposed and withdrew the trap
d nor, so that Tabaks died in the actot speech,
without knowing It, as it were, and without
a struggle. The executor had been most
earnestly entreated by a doctor of medicine
n piofessor, to provido him for once with a
warm corpse." To comply with this wish
he shortened tho timo "eight minutes" for
which n criminal should haug, to three, and
handed the corpse over to a physician, who
declared Tabaks dead. The body was spread
upon a marble table In the anatomy room,
and professor and students prepared for the
dissection, which, had they been anything of
n hurry, might have become vivisection.
of n sudden thebody moved, first Its feet,
and then its hand", and at last trembled
violently all over. Tho professor did not
loose his presence of mind, but camly sent
to the authorities to ask if Tabaks was to be
restored to life, or executed ngain before he
nwokol In tho meantime bethought it his
duty ns a human being to do ali he could to
restoro the life which had so unexpectedly
shown itself. After .111 h.jursbard work and
inhaillng of slts, Tabaks was sufficiently
recovered to understand that he had come
11 lif.i this sidi 11 f the Orcus, not the other
sido as ho at first believed. Ho swallowed
a plateful of s)up,uid then fell a prey to
violent fever, while his neck awelied in a
moit alarming manner. This was all we heard
that day, besides as to vague inlormation as
to tho authorities being uncertain whether
the half-slain body should not bo hanged
over again more thoroughly. There was a
universal outcry against this. It was said
that Tabaks had atoned for his crime by
suffering what the officers of the law had
deilared to be death. Jloro cannot be ex
acted by law. No man may bo killed twice.
The man's death, which took place exactly
tweuty-lour hours after his cxeculiou, hap
pily put an end to tho controversy, and pity
for the sufferer was thn universal feeling.
He had raved during the whole night, had
suffered the most horrible spasams, nnd had
so often attacked tho nurses that it was found
necessary to tie him to his bed. The prob
able consequence will bo the removal of the
executor from his ugly office, which he had
discharged with so little care.
