J UDGE STOWE, of Pittsburgh, granted

a verdict of SBOO damages for being badly hurt
by a runaway horse, which became frightened
by a bridge. * He was thrown down an enbank

ought to have been fenced. The new trial was
granted because the plaintiff, immediately after
the verdict had be.-n rendered, dined eleven of
the jurors at the St. Charles hotel.

EVERY reader of this paper, who
receives his CITIZEN regularly each week free
of postage, owes a debt of debt of gratitude to
the memorv of the late Sir Rowland Hill, who
died in Ifampstead, England, August 27th,
njed eighty-four. It i« to the efforts of Mr.
Ilill, that in 1830 the reduction in postage rates,
the abolition of the grosslv unjust franking
privileges, and other postal reforms were in
augurated. The results of his efforts are en
joyed bv the civilized world to-day. Perhaps
we cannot better realize just what our postal
facilities a",- thau by attempting to picture to
ourselves the year 1879 without them.

A wifiTER in Atlantic for October
next tries to make out that "Foreign trade (is)
no cure for hard times." His argument is that
in competing with European and Asiatic man
ufactnrcrs and producers, for foreign trade, we
impoverish our mechanics and laboring people
(by forcing them to take as low wages as ore
paid in those countries), and that thereby we
destroy home trade. He suggests no remedy,
but we suppose he means an export tax 011
both manufactures and produce. There issome
sense in the idea of putting an export tax on
raw-cotton, grain, and other articles, its it
would force the entire manufacture of those
articles at home, but an export tax 011 manu
factured articles, means a decrease in the num
ber of your customers. A decrease in the
number of your customers means a decrease in
jiiices. and that means a decrease iu wages.

THE abortive attempts to regulato
freights by joint action have recentlv led the
railroads to try a new experiment. They have
jointly appointed a commission of arbitration,
consisting of experts, who are to study railroad
questions and adjudicate differences which may
arise between the roads. The gentlemen selected
are Charles Francis Adams, Jr., David A. Wells
aud Johu A. Wright, who aru to recoive liberal
salaries and surrender their timeto the subjects
which may from time to time be submitted to
them. It is understood that in controversies
between the roads their decisions are to he final.
This arrangement points in the right direction,
aud is very well so far as it goes. But how are
these experts to enforce their awards ? If the
roads should prove as faithless to this engage
ment as they have been to their compacts on
the subjects of freight, it is difficult to see how
in the absence of law, they can have any
remedy against one another. The idea of a
commission is excellent; but it should bo a
commission created by law and clothed with
authority. In England there is such a com
mission appointed by the Government and in
vested with adequate powers to make its action
and its decisions legally binding—a commission
which not merely protects the railroads against
each other, but protects the public against
unjust discrimination by the roads. We believe
the time has come when Congress must take
this subject iu hand in a spirit of equity toward
all parties concerned.

Fall of Plankroad Bridge—Four Men
! About four o'clock last Wednesday afternoon
| a part of the bridge over the creek at this
place, known as the Plankroad bridge, at the
| South end of Main street, fell to the ground, a
' distance of about sixteen feet. The part fall
* iug, eight spans, was constructed entirely of
| wood, with wooden trestles for supj>ort, and
was beim* repaired. Ex-Sheriff Abraham Me
! Caudleas had the job of repairing, and with
J three of his sons, were on the part tailing at
the time. It seems the timbers and plank at
1 this end were being removed from the stone
| abutment, and being free from any brace by
l the same, it is supposed the jarring caused by
the throwing off of the heavy old sills, and the
| pressure upon the wooden trestles, caused them
to waver and fall, tiie whole eight spans drop
ping down in a body.
Upon these spans at work were ex-Sheriff
Abraham MeCaudless, and his sons George,
Abraham, Jr., and Howard. They are all more
or less injured, supposed to be caused by the
clash and rebouuding of the planks trorn the
sills and trestles when ail struck the ground.
The ex-Sheriff himself is the most injured,
having both arms broken, one of them literally
smashed at the elbow, and both legs badly
bruised about the knees, one knee cap bone
being cut in two, which perhaps is as danger
ous and painful a wound as lie has received.
He is now near sixty-five years of age, and has
been a successful bridge builder, building
more wooden bridges perhaps than any man
in the county. Much sympathy is expressed
in this misfortune in his declining yean. He,
with his son George, are laying at the house
of bis son Martin, in this place, and every care
is being taken of them. George has a severe
wound on liis forehead, one of his feet hurt,
and complains of injuries and pains in his side,
back and body generally. He is not, however,
supposed dangerously hurt. Abraham, Jr., has
one foot badly hurt, supposed to have l*en
caught between the planks, on the rebounding
of the planks, as many of the other injuries are
supi>osed to have occurred. His back is also
sprained and very sore, but if his foot gets
along it U supposed he is in uo danger. How
ard, the youngest son, is the least hurt, but has
one foot also much brnised and other slight
injuries. He is now upon his feet, at the house
of his brother Abraham, and is moving about,
while the other three are still confined to their
beds and may be for some time.
Our singular part of the occurrence is, that
a team of horses and a colt, belonging to Mr.
McCandless, were upou the bridge at the time
and were not very badly hurt, having appa
rently maintained their feet during the fail.
The result of this serious accident will doubt
less cause a different and better structure to
take the place of the old one. The wooden
trestles should at least be replaced with stone
piers. Had they been stone no accident could
have happened. The unsteady foundations of
the wootlen ones caused all the eight spans to
coine down together, whereas, if the supports
had been stone piers but one span could have
fallen. Besides, the time would seem to have
arrived for dispensing with this high trestle
work, is dangerous at best. Fears have
been entertained of this bridge for years past,
and we hope to see it repaired with stone pier*,
or with an iron one, if possible.
We omitted itvabove to state that Mr. Mar
tin J. Reiber, of this place, who was standing
near at the time, was struck by a timber and
had two ribs broken. Mr. George Mcl'andless,
brother of ex-Sheriff, was working on the
bridge but was near enough the abutment to
spring off and thus escaped uninjured.

Colored Camp Meeting.
There is a colored camp meeting being held
near Pros[>ect, in Wolford's grove, about a
quarter of a mile south of the town. It began
on Friday last, and will continue a week or
more. On Sunday last, we, with others, paid
a visit to the grove, and found in the after
noon a large crowd in attendence. At one
o'clock the exercises were opened with singing
and prayer, the choir composed of about a
dozen line singers, with organ acconipaninent.
After which a very interesting sermon was
preached by Rev. 15. W. Thomas, of Fisk Uni
versity, located at Nashville, Tennessee. His
text was, "Behold there came a leper and
worshiped him, saying Lord, if thou wilt, thou
canst make me clean."
The next sermon was preached by Rev.
Whiting, of Mansfield, Pa. This gentleman
gave his hearers a well digested sermon, and at
times eloquent as well as interesting. He is a
good orator, voice strong and clear. This with
prayer ami several beautiful hymns and jubilee
songs by the choir ended the afternoon exer
