AS SHOWN BY THE COMPROMISE AMEND. MENTS. VERY RADICAL CHANGES. To anyone even casually acquainted with the condition of affairs among 1 the railway employes of the country, the present state of affairs is one of profound interest. This interest is intensified as a result of the surprisingly Jittls attention generally paid an yet to the development of the existing- situation—a situation which imparts to the coming- assemblag-o in the city of New York of the trainmen and railway employes of the United States, Mexico and Canada a significance seldom acquired by any gathering-. It is hardly overstating the case to say that the deliberations of the delegates will directly concern every mtm, woman and child in America.

HATJK, JEWELER AND OPTICAN, TIME TABLE As to the bill itself a press special says that: "Senator Voorhees predicts ihat tho now tariff bill which was given to the public this morning, will pass the Senate practically without a change, in Jour weeks at the outside. "The Indiana Senator is much displeased with tho bill. "Although the Democrats have a majority in the Senate," said he, "that majority was literally taken by tho throa* by a political tool in our own party, and compelled to make concessions that bring the bluBh of ahame to the cheok of every self-respecting Democrat and tariff reformer." Senator Voorhees told a Democratic member of Congress this morning that he Intended to take the opportunity that would be offered him before the final vote was taken on the bill to •'lift the hair"—»a ho expresses it—of some of tho Democratic Senators who have been blocking the passage of tho bill. Senator Voor- bees 1 dissatisfaction with tho new tariff bill Is shared by a large majority of tho Democrats la both Houses." II.

There is no reason why it should not be a success. The directors are earnest and enthusiastic and the Journal and the public generally commend thorn. The resignation of Dr. Ealtery is to be regretted. He was an enthusiastic and earnest &s a director but he can do just as much good as a stockholder ana no doubt will. There is no reason why his interest in the successor the movement should grow loss and the Journal knows him well enough to believe that he will be at tho front as usual in tho work ol making; tho new company a success. Tho choice cf a successor will in- spiro confidence. Mayor B. C. I). Head has boon a constant opponant of the old gas company and will be a steadfast advocate of tho now. The recommendations for officers may not ploaeo ovory man but every man must admit that the officers and the dlfoc< tors aro above reproach and aro worthy the confidence of all. Pay up your subscriptions tojay. The now company Is a go. will be attempted to be shown in the account which follows of the mcusnrcs which arc to rccitivii the attention ot these delegates, the persons they represent and the grievances which it is their purpose to call to the attention of, congress. The Convention will begin its dolilv orations on May 27 nud is to remain in session three duys at least. Already preparations are under way at the Lenox Lyceum in New York, tho scene of the assemblage's labors, to prepare a fitting wt'lcomo for the men. The unions to be represented, besides the employes of the respective roads, include the Order of Railway Conductors, membership 10,001); the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, membership 31,000; the Jirotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, membership 21,000; the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, membership 70,000; the Order of Hailway Telegraphers, membership 5,000; the Switchmen's Mutual Aid association, membership 7,000, nnd special delegates bearing- credentials from the loading- roads of Mexico, Canada and the western Elates. The representatives will thus reach a goodly number and what they decided upon doiiis will, in tho language of A. A. McLeod, have an important betirinf,' upon tho railroad question on this continent for n. lonfr time to come. The chairman of tho interstate commerce commission, William R. Morrison, has long taken (.frcat interest la the growth of this movement. The convention will probably bo called to order by Chief 1'. M. Arthur, who comes from Cleveland at the hoad of one of tho leading- delegations of the conference. After thu election of permanent officers there will come an appointment of committees having- charge of (rrievonccs bearing upon every aspect of the railway labor problem. This will be, indeed, the real work of the assembly, and it is intended to have it done as guardedly as possiblo in view of the injuries alleged to have been done to the cause of tho railway hands through tho premature disclosure of their plans. The records of their deliberations will form indeed a moving- talc, and it is likely that when tho sensational charges to be brought against some o£ the railway magnates of this country uro formulated, public feeling will receive a so.ve.ro shook. Tho story of tho nn.speakable (log-vadations declared to have been visited upon the trainmim by the ofllcials of tin: wosiorn roads in particular will soera incredible when they are made known, and no secret is made of tho fact that a i-ongressional the. presentation of tho facts in this case is the fear expressed by the- men of the consequences to themselves ot Win too free an expression of tiieir sentiments. Ever since the combination of railway m:inufrurs formed by tho Webbs (.Sewui-d and H. Walter), with the object of crushing all forms of labor organisations on rail ways, it is declared that even the suspicion of he- iug a union man brings discharge in many cases. H. Waller Webb is pronounced by thu men the arch enemy of railroad labor. William V. Daniels, of Iowa, lender of the conductors, a conservative and trusted representative of the men, has formulated a bill of particulars which reveals the prevailing conditions of the hands in a deplorable light, and with V. }>. Sargent, of Indiana, representing- the firemen, and W. A. Shnsrott, of Illinois, one of the prominent officials of the Switchmen's union, Martin Whelan, of Kansas, leader of the shopmen, lias been, it is declared, the object of the hostility of many railway mas-nates throughout the country. One oi the most conspicuous grievances, in fact, is in this result to iullu- ential loaders among railway hands. Ko sooner do they become effective in the work of ameliorating- grievances than they aro singled out for the enmity of the board of directors, and it is proposed to ask congress for a statute prohibiting the unauthorized interference by officials of roads in the affairs of unions. The very existence of such a need among the men is evidence, it is pointed out, of a tension that may re- j suit in open outbreak yet. j It is needless to say that the railway , systems most concerned in the delib- i orations of tho men are awaiting tho , action they will take with anxiety. It j would seriously embarrass some properties, according to posted authorities, if congressional committees were to air their condition upou the pretense Of looking into the wrongs of labor, and it is certain that Washing-ton will ho the scene of warm contests between the representatives of the men and of the roads. The Union Pacific system willbeonc of the centers of grievance. The picture of degradation presented by some of tho reports to bo presented by the delegates, almost exceeds belief. Instances are to be cited where whole crews have been subjected to petty extortion, and methods of "docking" wages introduced which bring earnings down to an nverage barely sufficient to support life. It will be charged that more than ten thousand dollars has heon taken from the men collectively at one time through a tyrannical system of deductions in pay. Another trouble on this system is alleged charges for losses with which the men have no connection. In other words they arc made to pay for wear and tear through a method of fining tho last user of a damaged article. Losses of goods also fall upon them in a way which is declared to make the mcu pay Highest of all in Leavening Power.— Latest U. S. Gov't Report Baking Powder PURE is May 37, 28 and 29. The Joadors of the unions will all be in attendance, not merely those mimed above, but such others us W. A. Hheahan, of Illinois, who heads the Jirotherhood of Railway Trainmen, .iud probably Jamos R. Sovereign. Nevertheless, the idea of the conference is a conservative ono. It is proposed to elaborate a totall3' new scheme of arbitration and to present it to congress with the intention of having- It- passed l/y that body. AH the leaders say the unions are convinced that some principle of arbitration will have to be found if the railway system is not to be plunged into spasmodic anarchy every now and then. Among the proposed measures is an address to the interstate commerce commission iislcing- its more attentive consideration of the railway labor problem. MAY MARRY ROSEBERY.

If Rumor lias repented of her former stns and ceased to be the lying-jade she was, then Princess Maud, the youngest daughter of the prince of Wales, i's to • be 'married to tlie earl of Rosebery, who succeeded Mr. GJadstone in the premiership of the Dis-united Kingdom. That a princess of the blood should become the wife of a subject would,says the illustrated American, a few years ago, have been hooted at as a ridiculous impossibility in England. Thirty years have not passed since the mother of the future queen-consort wanted to marry Lord llood. But her cousin, ing. he too)f an active part in tne prep- - aration of a new code of procedure.. lie was intrusted by the state, in 1857,.. as president of a commission., with the > DAVID IHTOTJsy FIELD. task of preparing a political code, ft penal code and a civic code, contain- Inp the entire body of the law. lit 180(5 he broug-ht before the British . Association for the Promotion of Social Science a proposal for a peneral revision of the laws of nations and secured the appointment of a committee of eminent jurists of different countries to prepare the outlines of a code which should be submitted for the approval of the nations represented. As the representative of America in this committee he prepared, in IS'S, a large volume entitled "Outlines of an International Code,"which attracted worldwide attention. In the same j-ear, 1873, he attended a meeting- at Brussels, which, resulted in the formation of an association of economists, legislators and lawyers from all parts of the world for the reform and codification of the laws of nations, the object being- to substitute arbitration for war in the settlement of disputes. Of this association he was chosen president. In the latter part of IS73 Mr. Field, made a tour around the world, being: received everywhere with, the highest honors permissible to a civilian. Mr. Field was a member of oite of the most noted families of this country. Justice Field, of the United States supreme court, and Cyrus Field, father of tbeoei-au cable, were his brothers.

A unique grievance prevailing in the j Sow we shall probably see the strange west and throughout New England is i spectacle of the children of a Jewess Queen Victoria, refused to permit such a mesalliance and chose a husband for her out of the G'ermau serene highnesses. In no country have democracy and liberal mindedncss made such rapid strides of late years as in England. "Her Most Gracious" seems to have traveled with tlie times, for since Princess Mary was not allowed to marry the man of her choice, her majesty has given a daughter in mar- j riag-o to a subject, mid one granddaughter. And apropos of the daughter's alliance it was said at tho time that Lord Eoscbery might have had the hand of Princess Louise, now marchioness of Lome, for tlie asking'. Still more curious is the fact that an. English princess should become the wife of tho widower of a Jewess. Up to 1858 a Jew could not legally become a member of parliament Since then England has had u premier (Disraeli) born of Jewish parents, a Jen- lord chief WAS ALMOST BLIND Little Girl bad to be Kept tn a.

V, Allen will have charge of the senate end of the trainmen's complaints and his well known hostility to the alleged oppressive features of railway management lead the laborers to expect no concealment of the extent of their wrong's— for wrongs they call them. Indeed, it may be said that tho gathering this month will he little else than a public indictment of tho railroads by their em- ployes. .. ,0ne of the (JifSoultles connected..mill in the charpe that tlie roads have recently adopted ivhat is described to the men as a protective or insurance system, but which is iu reality a device to ruuUc good to the road losses iu tho employe expense account. -An Instance is cited \vhorc a board of directors, pushed for funds aftiir tho ilec'.ariiifi- of a "jjny" dividend, actually mulcted fifteen hundred men's pay bills to yain time. It is well laiowu that a favorite method of railway raanaR-ement is to reduce wapfcs, but a late inodiQeation of Uiufc plan is to dis^j-niso reductions by inllietius- penalties for losses or by charging time losses in transferences from train to train. In this way, the men aUcpe, the roads are enabled to uliow that their books reveal a high rate of wages, whereas the sums takitu •off the nominal wag-c.s are never made public at all. Other surprises of the conference will consist in tho revelations of some secrets of railway management that are expected to prove even roorc flag-rant.
