1'erlloti, llhlo nt n Conflurtar on the
Lehigh Vulley Kallroari.
Conductor John McIIugh on the
Lehigh Valley Road w as waked up In
his caboose Sunday morning after ono
of 'the most perilous rides iu his
twenty seven years' experience of
railroading. Early Sunday morning his
train passed Ulack Creek Junction,
only a mile from Weatherly, the stop,
ping point, It was then that MoIIugh
told Aaron Elfert, the brakeman, to
cut the caboose loose from tbe train at
the lower end of Weatherly siding and
let the engine take the train to the
western end. As Instructed the brake-
man a few minutes later pulled the
coupling pin which held the oaboose
to tbe train,
Snpposingthat McIIugh would take
care of tho caboose, Eifert continued
up the siding with the train. He
noticed shortly after that the caboose
was uiready out on the main track and
the conductor was not on tho platform
2 per cent grade makes the road be
tween here and Penn Haven. The
trainmen realized that ho could
not possibly catch it. Hastening to
the telegraph office, ho notified tho
operator. Messages were sent to the
dllfereut stations down the road with
tho hope of side-tracking oMleralliug
the runaway oar. It was not then
known whother Mcllugh'was ou the
car or not. Black Creek operator re
ported the oar by his station, and tho
man at Peim Haven wns notified only
iu time to catch a glimpse of the car
as it bbot by his olilce.
The next olilce was Packerton, 20
miles below, where there is a run
away truck, built for just such an
emergeuoy. Fortunately no other
trains had passed that paint goiug
west, and the operator had time to
turn the safety switch. Other trala
uieu uero distributed along tho graded
trusk to catch tho runaway caboose
before it reached the obstruction at
the end. Asboit time after the car
dashed over the switch and sped up
the incline. Gradually its pace was
reduced, and a brakeman boarded it
iu time to prevent It from striking the
obstruction aud tumbling down the
embankment. When be entered the
our, Mellugh was found sitting ou
a banoh sound asleep, aud totally oli

Judge Slroonton Tuesdar dlstmaed f
all tbe cases Involving the riuht nf
diiuiciai candidates to nlaoes on re
gular tickets, presented for his con
sideration. The first one argued was
t list resulting from the filing of objec
tions to the certificate of nomination
of Allen Craig, of Carbon county, as a
candidate forjudge In the Carbon.
Monroe district. In them it was oon.
tended that be bad not been noml-
nateu according to the usages of, the
Demooratlo party, aud Michael Cassldr
chairman of the Democratic oommlttee
f Carbon county, was put on the wit-
new stand by council for Mr. Storm to
prove the customs of that organisation
with regard to the selection of candi
dates for Judge iu the district.
Mr. Sharkey, of Mauch Chunk, test!.
fled in the interest of Allen Craig. He
stated that after several meetings
f oonferrees from both the oountios
iu the district, the effort to Relect a
oandidato by the method was abaud
oned. Ex Deputy Attorney General Suod-
grass, who represented Mr. Craig, made
the best argument possible 'in the
light of the opinion of Judge Slniouton
that candidates nominated In but one
county lu a district comprising two
oounties were uot entitled to a place
on the regular ticket of their party
Auout all he could say was that tho
Secretary of the Commonwealth
should refuse to file the certificates of
Mr. Storm and Mr. uruig because thev
ere "manifestly defective."
Lyman D. Gilbert represented the
bjectionsto Mr. Craig and bad plain
sailing, because the" latter had failed
to file objections to the certificate of
his Democratic Judicial rival,
Soon after tbe close of tho argument
Judge '.tjimouton decided agalust the

Counsel for the Fusion party of

papers filed in tho office of the Secre
tary of the Commonwealth, it was pro
sented to the Dauphin County Court
uesday In view of those modification,
the Secretary of tho commonwealth
that evening ordered au official ballot
to be made out for the Fusion party,
with the names of Judges White and
Ewlng on it.
The name of Mr. Downey, of Greene
county, will go on the Republican
ticket In Fayette and Greene counties
by nomination papers only.
iVs no objections were filed to tbe
certificate of nomination of Edward
Campbell, the Prohibition oandidato
forjudge in the Fayette-Greene dis
trict, the determination formed at the
State Department Tuesday night not
to place his uamo ou the regular party
ticket was reconsidered, und
favorable action was taken on
his certificate of nomination, although
It was regarded as not harmonizing
with the law.
Similar action was taken with regard
to the certificate of nomination of
Storm, Mr. Craig will have to make the
raoe In the district ou nomination
Mr. Storm was alone certified as the
regular Demccratic candidate to the
Sherllfs and Prothonotarles of Carbon
aud Monroe counties, despite the fact
that Mr. Craig filed a protest Tuesday
evening against the recognition of his
opponent's certificate of uomlnatlou
based on Judge Simonton's opinion in
the Mostrezat-Inghratn case. In this
protest it is asserted that the evidence
taken shows that Mr. Storm was
nominated only iu one oouuty, nud
therefore not entitled to place on the
regular Democratic ticket.
The protest concludes: "The nrinci
pla decided by the Court, it Is submit
ted, will apply to all certificates of
nomination which upon their faoe do
not appear to have been made by the
party representing tbe entire electoral
district aud that iu making up his offi
cial ballots the Secretary will be gov

similar cases whether formal object

Secretary Harritv bases his action In
placing Mr. Storm's name ou the reiru-

The remarks ot Mr. bnodarass. Mr.
Craig's counsel, declaring tbe duty of
tbe Secretary of the commonwealth to
refuse to reoogulse certificates of
nomination whtob are not iu com
pliauce with tbe law, was iusptred by
the provision in the Kaker law: "It
shall be the duty of officers to whom
