ROOSEVELT A UNION MAN.
Is .Member of the Brotherhood of
CiiattaxoooA, Tenn., Sept. 8. Presl
dent Hoosevelt today was elected an hon
orary memlier. of the Krotherhood of
Locomotive Firemen. He attended the
executive session tliis morning, walking
from the hotel to Uie Auditorium a
distance of a few blocks, escorted by
Grand Master Sarjw-nt, a committee of
the Brotherhood and a detachment of
Troop F., State Ciuard. His reception
was nost intiinsiauc, me audience
rising and cheering. When the Presi-
dt-ut addressed the convention as "My
brothers"' he was cheered aipiin. He
said lie was to he here, and joined
with the others in extending a cordial
welcome to the visitors from Canada
and Mexico. He needed no pressing,
he said, to come to this meeting.
I always have, gentlemen, admired
greatly the railroad men if the country,
and . I do not see how any one lielicving
in the fundamental principles of eitiren
ship can fail to do so," he said.
He compared the railroad men to sol-
licrs who are accustomed to taking risks,
acting on their o'aii initiative and obey-
ngorlers. In raising Ids own regiment,
he said, he got a number of railroad men.
Of course, the first requisite was that a
man should know how to ride and hw
o shoot. Giving them tnese two qual
ities, he found there was no better gr.up
if men from which soldiers tsmld be
drawn than railroad men. The I'resi-
dent sai.l he hoied that the danger of
war would lie less in the future than it
had leeii in the iaM. The President
referred to the good work accomplished
bv the Brtherhowd of Locomotive Fire-
"I is'lieve emphatically," he said, "in
organized lalor. The work of an or
ganization depends nn its being han
dled with the courage, Uie skill, the wis
dom, thespirit of fair dealing as between
man and man, and the wise self-restraint
which I am glad to le aWe to say your
brotherhood has shwn."

SUICIDE OF PHIL CORKIN.
Oldest Engineer on the S. P. Lines tn
Oregon Shit hlmsd Monday.
PoBTt.AM, Sept. 8. Seating himself
011 a box of bricks in a remote corner of
the lower floor of Weinhard's new
building, at the southeast corner of Al
der and Fourth streets, Philip Corkin, a
pioneer locomotive engineer, up to a
short time ao in the employe of the
Southern Pacific Company, placed a 22'
caliber revolver in his nn.i.ili, and, pull
ing the trigger with the thumb of his
right hand, blew out his brains. Death
a me within a few minutes. IUvauseof
the gun lieing held in the mouth, the
rejiort was muffled, but a man at work
near by heard the shot. The suicide
was committed at 2 o'clock.
From nil appearam-e the suicide was
most delilierate. A few minutes before
firing th faUl hot CVrkin took lunch
as nsual at the Iuvre. omiosite the
lace which he selected for the execu-
ion of hi terrible intention. He suoke
wsth the waiter and the cashier, and ap-
lared js-rfectly rational. Evidentlr
e walked directly from the table across
the street into the incompleW store
A motive for the rash act that is sniv-
sse. tignnii prominently was Cor Lin's
removal from he run 011 the Fst Side
ivisioii iA the Sriithern Pacific slpout
ix we-ks ag. Ihvaustrof having Ijeco
arllr resjionsible for a roilision near
Hubbard, he was laid off w ith an offer
to go to work on the Oswego run. This
offer, he would not consider, hweer
so it is niuler-tooil, U ing.as he a,s i
of the oldest engineers oa the line. . "n;
lismisil is said to have tonrh.fcl j,
pride very much, and no doijbt. to it
may U? attributed the motive Iris act.
Very little is known of, (,rkia ' i-r-
soual affairs, although j'cajly erf rylwidv
knew mm by sigltt. He. was a siusrle
man, and lived with K lwar I ft. Elliott
another engineer on the road, at 532
Couch street. About a week ai-n h

time, but hirariably gave away all that

(Engineer Owkin ha-l lnanv friends in
