Timely Talks by Commissioner Dix-

“Frame your mind to mirth and
merriment, Which bar a thousand

Lycurgus decreed that statues of |
the God of Mirth should be set up in
the halls where the citizens of Spar-

Men of all ages have appreciated
the value of a cheerful disposition.
The cultivation of cheerfulness even
in the face of misfortunes and disas-

illness. On the other hand those who
always take a somber view of life are
so distressed by misfortunes when
they come that there is often danger | Mary Shockey;

The Baltimore and Ohio railroad, it
is understood, is in the market for new
equipment which will represent an ex-
penditure of approximately $2,000,000
Among the items are 2,000 steel hop-
pers. It is probable the order will be
placed at an early date. The ordinary
steel hopper costs in the neighborhood
of $1,000. The shops of the company
are busy repairing cars. The number
in the shps is large and when they
are in condition to be put in service
again the car situation on the Balti-
more & Ohio will be still further im-
proved. .
The company is well supplied with
motive power at this time. Engines
are available to move an increased
tonnage, provided the cars are fur-
nished in which to haul the traffic. In
the fall the Baltimore & Ohio will be-
gin to figure on its rail requirements |
for the new fiscal year.

Was McClellan a Traitor?
In Harper's Mazazine there are
printed for the first time extracts from
John Hay’'s diary, written when he
was Lincoln’s secretary. Writing in
1864, he recounts a story told him by
Lincoln which reveals McClellan in a
new light.
“On September 25, 1864, Hay re-
cords that a letter had just come from
Nicolay, who was in New York, stating
that Thurlow Weed, the dominant Re-
publican leader in New York State,
with whom Nicolay was to confer, had
gone to Conada. When Hay showed
the President the letter he said: ‘I
think I know where Mr. Weed has
gone. I think he has gone to Vermont,
not Canada. I will tell you what he
is trying to do. I have not as yet told
“And then Lincoln proceeded to un-
fold the following story of a remark-
able intrigue:
“‘Some time ago the Governor of
Vermont came to me on “business of
importance,” he said. I fixed an hour
and he came. His name is Smith. He
is, though you would not think it, a
cousin of Baldy Smith. Baldy is large,
blond, florid. The Governor is a little,
dark sort of man. This is the story
he told me, giving General Baldy
Smith as his authority:
“ “When Gen. McClellan was here at
Washington (in 1862) B. Smith was
very intimate with him. They had
been toegther at West Point and
friends. McClellan had asked for pro-
motion for Baldy from the President
and got it. They were close and con-
fidential friends.
down to the Peninsula their same inti-
mate relations continued, the General
talking freely with Smith about all his
plans and prospects, until one day
Fernando Wood and one other (Demo-
cratic) politician from New York ap-
peared in camp and passed some days |
with McClellan.
“prom the day this took place
Smith saw, or thought he saw, that
McClellan was treating him with un-
usual coolnes sand reserve. After a
little while he mentioned this to Mec-
Clellan, who, after some talk, told
Baldy he had something to show him.
He told him that these people who
had recently visited him had been urg-
ing him to stand as an opposition can-
didate for President; that he had
thought the thing over and had con-
cluded to accept their proposition, and
had written them a letter (which he
had not yet sent) giving his idea of
the proper way of conducting the war,
so as to conciliate and impress the
people of the South with the idea that
our armies were intended merely to
execute the laws and protect their
property, etc. and pledging himself to
conduct the war in that inefficient,
conciliatory style.
« «This letter he read to Baldy, who,
after the reading, was finished, said
earnestly: “General, do you not see
that looks like treason, and that it will
ruin you and all of us?” After some
further talk the General destroyed the
letter in Baldy’s presence; and thapked
him heartily for his frank and friendly
counsel. After this he was again tak-
en into the intimate confidence of Mc-
« qmmediately after the battle of
Antietam, Wood and his familiar came
again and saw the General and again
Baldy saw an immediate estrangement
on the part of McClellan. He seemed
to be anxious to get his intimate
friends out of the way and to avoid
opportunities of private conversation
with them. Baldy he particularly kept
employed on reconnoisance and such
work. One night Smith was return-
ing from some duty he had been per-
forming, and, seeing a light in McClel-
lan’s tent, he went in to report. He
reported and was about to withdraw
when the General requested him to
remain. After every one was gone he
told him those men had been there
again and had renewed their proposi-
tion about the Presidency; that this
time he had agreed to their proposition
and had written them a letter acceding
to their terms and pledging himself to
carry on the war in the sense already
indicated. This letter he read then
and there to Baldy Smith.
« qmmediately thereafter B. Smith
applied to be transferred from that
army. At very nearly the same time
other prominent men asked the same
—Franklin, Burnside and others.
«Now that letter must be in the
possession of F. Wood, and it will not
be impossible to get it. Mr. Weed has,
I think, gone to Vermont to see the
Smiths about it.’
“Hay continues:
“« was very much surprised at the
story and presed my surprise. I
said I had always thought that Me-
lellan’s fault was a constitutional
weakness and idity, which pre-
vented him from active and timely
exertion, instead of any such deep-laid
scheme of tr hery and ambition.
“ «The President replied: “After the
battle of Antietam I went up to the
field to try to get him to move, and
came back thinking he would move at
once. But when I got home he began
to argue why he ought not to move.
I peremptorily ordered him to advance.
It was nineteen days before he put a
man over the river. It was nine days
longer before he got his army across,
and then he stopped again, delaying
on little pretexts of wanting this’ and
that. I began to fear he was playing
false—that he did not want to hurt
the enemy. I saw how he could in-
tercept the enemy on the way to Rich-
mond. I determined to make that the
test. If he let them get away I would
remove him. He did so, and I re-
lieved him.'”

“No. I wish I had sense enough ta
