Congressman Bynum's Tale of Two Men
Who Failed to Get Office.
THEI COXTBIBUTED TO THE FUXD,
Bat for Btasou cf His Oto, the President Had to
Eematn Their Better.
The Democrats of Indiana areJnuch
amused at some stories that are being told
of the manner in which money wasraised
for the last Presidental campaign n that
State in return for offices that nave not been
turned oTer to the contributors.
rSrECIAL TKLEGR1U TO THE DISPATCH.!
"Washington, September U.Kepre
Eentative Bynum, of Indiana, is in town,
and tells some very entertaining stories of
the tray the administration is dispensing
patronage in various parts of his State.
United States Treasurer Huston, he says,
who was Chairman of the State Republican
Committee during the Presidental cam
paign, went about among the local bosses
collecting contributions to the party fund
and doliug out to each contributor assur
ances of the amount of patronape to which
his individual subscription wonld entitle
Unhappily, the President failed to carry
out many of these agreements. One man,
for example, gave some hundreds of dollars,
besides procuring the indorsements from a
majority of the leading Republicans of his
town for postmaster, but lo! when the post
office changed hands
IT 'WENT NOT TO HIM,
but to a comparativelv unknown and un
suspected merchant, who dealt in shoes. It
took a good while for the defeated candidate
to grasp tr reason for this miscarriage of
plans. br,t he presently learned that his
Inckr rival was in the habit of buying his
stock in trade of Mr. McKee. General
Harrison's son-in-law, and was considered a
In another town a hungry and thirsty
patriot subscribed 5200 on the faith of
getting the postoffice in exchange. The local
Grand Army organization, however, which
was very strong politically, indorsed some
body else, and the President did not dare to
carry out the contract of his campaign col
lector. This made the 5200 man very angry,
of course, but he had the shrewd sense to
A BUSINESS VIEW
of the situation, and go to the successful
competitor and demand his money back,
instead of kicking up a public rowand em
barrassing the Republican machine with
disagreeable exposures. The victor was
equally business-like, and consented to
make good the contribution if the other
would consent to take a note for the amount.
So that is the way the matter stands at
The postoffices are only a part, Mr.
Bynum says, of the general system of pur
chase, sale and delivery, which has been in
operation ever since the campaign of last
year got fairly under way and the calls for
money became uncomfortably pressing. The
scandal reaches even into the pettiest places
that command a salary of a lew hundred
dollars from the Government.
ASITRISG TO AKIBODr.
What New Jmcr ProhlbltlonUU Think a
Republican Platform Meant.
ISrEClAI, TELEORAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1
Kevt Tokk, September 19. General
Clinton B. Fisk, candidate for President on
the Prohibition ticket last fall, was asked
to-day what he thought the temperance
plank in the platform adopted by the New
Jersey State Republican Convention on
Tuesday meant local option, high license,
or both or neither. He replied: "This
plank is, in my mind, a very good plank
for those who like that kind of a plank. A
man who is in favor of local option can con
strue it as for local option, and the man who
wants high license can construe it as being
in favor of high license. That platform
does not say anything. It does not mean
anything, and its commits the party to
nothing. I was willing to help elect a
Lejislature which would give us an efficient
local option law, but this platform says
George La Monte, the Prohibition candi
date for Governor, said when asked what he
thought of the platform: "Why, it means
anything to anybody, or nothing to any
body." He added that the plank had been
submitted to the brewers' attorneys and was
pronounced satisfactory. Then "it was pre
sented to the Prohibitum Renublicans and
was satisfactory to them. As to the
effect of the plank on the Prohibi
tion vote, he said: "I have heard
Republicans declare that if the party did
not take a decided stand in tht matter they
wonld not vote with it, and vet their politi
cal bias swaved them at th'e last If any
good to the Prohibition party results it will
be more from a suppression of Republican
voles than any direct defection of Repub
licans to the Prohibitionists."
TWO OFFICERS AEEESTED.
They Are Charged With Actine In a Dis
Police officers Alexander and Davis were
arrested last night by Special Officer Cald
well, of the World's Museum,for disorderly
conduct. The accused men claim that they
may have been talking a little loudly, but
they were far from disorderly, and charac
terize the arrest as an outrage. They were
off duty at the time of the arrest, and were
allowed to depart without bail, but
were ordered to appear at the hearing to
morrow. THE PACKAGE HISSING.
Ttto Italians Accused or Stealing Express

An Editorial on Iho Iron Investments of
the Ensllslt Syndicate.
The current issue of the American Manu
facturer contains a lengthy editorial on the
operations of the English syndicate that
purchased the Oti's Iron and Steel Com
pany's plant at Cleveland, and the works of
the Thomas Iron Company at Easton. The
article reviews at length the sale of the two
large establishments, and concludes as fol
lows: It is not at all impossible that these concerns
may continue to make earnings on the oasis of
those of the past, and to pay dividends, but the
Srobabilltics arc against it. The experience of
IngUsh companies is against it.

A SCARCITY OF COKE.
Expectations of a Boom in That Line
About to be Realized.
A SOMEWHAT SIMILAR OCCASION.
The Predicament of a Witness Who Was
Bather Too Willing.

tSPECIAL TSLEQRAU to TBI DISPATCH.
Connellsville, September 19. "There
is a scarcity of coke as well as a scarcity of
coke cars in the Connellsville region," says
the Courier, in its review this week. "The
demand has a last become greater than the
supply. In spite of the fact that all the
outside coke regions have fired up their
long idle ovens again, and are putting the
product on the market, tho Connellsville
operators have more orders than they can AIL
There still remain a few idle ovens in the re
gion, bnt these are being fired up as rapidly as
possible, and new ones are being projected.
Already the production and output Is up to
the average of the boom times of last fall, and
the conditions of trade warrant the prediction
that they must soon exceed them.
"It is an Interesting fact that the iron trade
situation at tho present time is much the same
as that which prevailed ten years ago, when the
price of Iron was advanced from 2 cents in
August to 4 cents in the following February,
and when the price of coko rose from tl 75 to
Si 50 in a few months. The boom of 1S79 was
preceded by just such a dullness as marked the
present spring, and the Improvement began
about the same time in tbe year. It is not
probable: however, that the boom of 18S9 will
be so violent as that of 1879. It is to be hoped
that it will not Such rapid and great ad
vances are sure to bo followed by correspond
ingly radical reactions and consequent demor
alization of trade. Better moderate prosperity
longer continued. None appreciate this fact
better than the iron men themselves, and it Is
not likely that the folly of 1879 will be repeated
"We may not therefore, look for such ex
tra vacant prlceB as characterized a correspond
ing period ten years ago, but an advance to S3
is not at all without the bounds of possibility.
The estimated production of last week was 126,
488 tons. This is the biggest week's output
with bnt one exception, during the present
year, and within 1,000 tons of being the largest
week's production In the history of the coke
region. The shipments for last week were
correspondingly large, aggregating 6,100 cars."
CAUGHT IN A TRAP.
A Too Willing Witness Suddenly Becomes
the Defendant Himself.
SPECIAL TELEOllAil TO TUB DISPATCH. 1
Canton, Beptember 19. Charles Davis, a
saloon keeper, swore himself behind the bars
here very quickly. Joseph Kraft, also a saloon
keeper, was being prosecuted by the Law and
Order Society for selling liquor to Eddie Walt
nor, a minor, aged 13 years, who was wheeled
home drunk. Davis thought to save his friend
and testified that at the time in question, he
had purchased tho liquor and had given It to
the boy. Tbe attorney for the prosecution
asked Davis if be was willine to swear that he
had f urnisbed Waltnor with liquor. Davis re
plied that he had sworn it
"Do you know that you are liable to prose
cution for so doing?"
"No, sir." replied Davis.
"Well, sir, you are," said tbe attorney, and
turning to his associate asked him to prepare an
affidavit against Davis, which was aone. He
was then arrested as soon as he left the witness
stand, waived examination and was bound over
to Probate Court He was an outside narty,
but will now be jailed for giving liquor or
prosecuted for perjury.
