General Manager of the Union Pacific Railway, S. T. Smith, General Superintendent of Nebraska Division, for the generous favors they have shown us in furnishing free transportation to the military band of Sidney, and also to all engineers, their wives or sweethearts, who desired to attend our annual May party, held at North Platte on the evening of May 1st, 1885. Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to each of them, and published in the ENGINERRS' MONTHLY JOURNAL.
M. B. TARKINGTON,
The chairman, in his opening remarks, stated that it was gratifying to him, as it must be to all others interested in this gathering, to witness such a large attendance. It showed, he thought, their appreciation of Mr. McNeill, who had, for so many years, been a warm friend to his fellow-workmen. [Cheers.] Mr. McNeill was now favorably situated, and, he had no doubt, he would continue to merit promotion from the company until he held the highest Committee. gift of his employers. [Cheers.] His friends here, the chairman concluded, would always be pleased to hear of his success. [Cheers.]

Whereas, The members of this Division have received many favors from the different railway officials, during our attendance at the Union meeting held in the city of Springfield, Ills, May 24, 1885. Therefore, be it
Resolved, That a vote of thanks is due and is hereby tendered to T.B. Burnett, General Manager, and F. B. Ogden, Supt. of the Peoria & Pekin Union Ry. Co.; and to E. N. Armstdong, Supt.; N. H Goodell and F. L. Tompkins, Train Masters; J. B. Barnes, Supt. of Motive Power; and M. Honness, Division M. M. of the Wabash, St. Louis & Pacific Ry. Co., Middle Division, for the kindness in furnishing us with a special train, thereby placing us under lasting obligations for the favors shown, which we shall endeavor to show in the future, by our work that we appreciate.
Mr. Thomas McNabb, secretary of the committee, then presented Mr. McNeill with a handsome gold watch. He said: The object that calls us together this evening is to take some substantial notice of the services rendered the locomotive engineers and firemen by our late brother engineer and fellow-workman S. C. McNeill [cheers], who, for a number of years, has labored so faithfully and zealously, and made many sacrifices of time, in discharging the duties of his office, viz: Representative of the engineers and firemen of the Grand Trunk Railway. [Cheers.] Inscribed in the mottos of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers
to which nearly all of the engineers belongwe find the word "Justice," and we believe it would not be just, right or proper to let such services pass unrewarded. Therefore, Brother McNeill and fellow employes, it affords we and firemen of Belleville that, appreciating the much pleasure to say in behalf of the engineers services you have rendered, they have thought this a fitting opportunity to present you with some token as a tangible proof of their appreciation and esteem, and for that purpose have that we could have selected a more fitting testiselected a watch. [Cheers.] I do not know monial, or one more useful to our calling, which requires that we should watch, always watch. Whether in the bright rays of the midday sun or in the darkness of the midnight hour; whether on the straight line or on the sharpe curve, or the up grade or the down grade; whether running backward or forward, the engineer should watch-watch his time, watch his orders, watch the switches, watch his rights, watch his engine, watch lest he encroach upon the rights of others. Then no testimonial could be more suitable to his calling or better calculated to remind him of his responsibility. [Cheers.] Then, Mr. McNeill, please accept this watch, and with it the best wishes of the locomotive engineers and firemen of Belleville that you may long live to enjoy it. You see these gold cases, which will remind you of the purity of our intentions in giving merit to whom merit is due. [Cheers.] Inside you will find a movement that for acwill remind you of the accuracy of your accuracy of time can not be surpassed, which tions as a brother locomotive engineer; and as you watch the movement of the hands on the watch let it remind you of your duties as a locomotive fireman, that you shall watch the Below is given a full account taken from the movement of the power under your superviBelleville Daily Ontario.

BELLEVILLE, May 15, 1885. MESSRS EDITORS: A very happy party met in Odd Fellows' Hall, Belleville, on April 28, comprising the engineers of Division 189 and firemen of Challenge Lodge 66, and their friends, to pay tribute of respect to Bro. McNeill, who has received the appointment of Locomotive Foreman at Pt. St. Charles. Bro. McNeill was for a number of years representative of the General Committee, and for the past two years was chairman of the committee representing the Grand Trunk System.
rose to reply to the able address of the secretary. He heartily thanked them for the valuable present which they had given him, and he promised to preserve it that in years hence he might look back to the good and true friends he had left in Belleville. As a fellow-workman for fifteen years he had witnessed many similar presentations to those leaving to fill distant stations, and from the earnest and enthusiastic manner in which the engineers and firemen always responded, he valued this token of their appreciation more than the real value of the watch. (Cheers.) Here Mr. McNeill was overcome with emotion and he was unable to give expression to his thoughts, but the silent tear trickling down his cheek told the hundred and fifty people surrounding him his true thankfulness to them for the kind expressions of good will accompanied by such a magnificent present.
The watch was bought in Montreal, by Mr. McNabb, and is valued at $150. It is an Appleton Tracy, three ounce, eighteen carat watch, with a fine monogram on the case, the inscription on the inside reading: "Presented to S. C. McNeill, by the Locomotive Engineers and Firemen of the Grand Trunk Railway, Belleville, April, 1885.
A brief program of songs and recitations was then rendered, after which the ladies provided a bountiful supper, and dancing was resumed. The program was brought to a close about two hours afterwards, all expressing their entire satisfaction with the arrangements made by the commitee, and Mr. McNeill received a cordial shake of hands from his friends, and many a kind word of congratulation and encouragement for future success.
