engine-room of Sands' gang mill, from which place a track nearly one hundred
and fifty feet in length had been built for experimental purposes. Everything
was in readiness, and after a few moments spent in getting up steam, the
shrill whistle of the locomotive was blown, and several persons, including
the scribe, stepped aboard the engine. Steam was turned on, and the engine
shot out of the mill and down the track at a rapid rate.As the locomotive
approached the end of the track, the engineer whistled "down brakes", and

INCONSISTENCY.- The Independent attempts to defend its support of DOVEL upon the ground that the charges which are made against Mr. DOVEL are of a "private" character. It therefore assumes that it is not in the provinece of a public journal to touch a candidate's private character. We would like to know how the Independent can make such a position as that consistent with their treatment of Louis E. MORRIS, whose private character the Independent assailed even before the democratic convention met. Is DOVEL's private character any more sacred than MORRIS? and if so, why?
