CHICAGO SHOE STORE 403 Broadway, Logansport. By TeSeeraph to lie Journal CHICAGO, May i—Everything has been qniet this afternoon and evening on the "black road. 1 " Tbe striking moulders have made no effort to procure a meeting with the employ ers and the latter are in absolute ignorance of what is demanded. The bulk of the men also, do not seem to know their own mind and say that they struck because ordered by their leaders to do so. The whole affair has the appearance of beinsy a simple case of strike fever. The authorities apprehend no further disturbance, but the neighborhood is well patrolled by officers and any incipient outbreak will be »p*edily repressed. So far the strik* has not caused a cessation of work in tbf other departments of McCormick's Reaper works. The m*-n employed at the Godd- -willie Box factory struck for eight hoars this morning. At noon tUeir demands -were acceded to and tbe returned to work. The men at tlie Cooper Lumber comnany's yards were also victorious," The fi'rai agreed to grant the eight-hour day and the meu went to work at noon. Four hundred men employed by Denma & Durka's Furniture Factory struck to-day for eight hours, " Seven hundred men employed by the Chicago Cottage Organ company are also anVcted by the strike fever and refuse to work un l*"ss granted t!»e eight hour dav. Trouble is brewing in the lumber yards, and the prospect is that unless granted the eight hours and more pay the lumbershovers—sever- al thousand men—wiH quit work. If these cueu strike it will shut down work ia most of the yard* and tie up a!! the southwestern iu'_aber trade. €0 00 50 25 00 00 The New Common Sense LADIES PINE SHOES, We vrould like to have you try them on.

General Superintendent "Watt* savs the men were not discharged without cause, and it may be that the company will refuse to change its action. If Mr. Wheaton cannot by persuasion secure the reinstatement of the discharged men nothing else can b« done by the order, for in its constitution ~tb»re is » clause forbidding strikes. Some of the men want this clause changed. Strifes in Fratwe. BjTaMe to the JonrnaL PARIS, May Z-— The strike at Roubiai is extending to adjacent comm unities.

The concurrent resolution heretofore offered by Mr. Doipb, requesting the President to enter into negotiations with the governments of Great Britain and Mexico, with a view to securing treaty stipulations for the prevention of the entry of Chinese laborers into the United States was taken up and agreed to. A message from tbe House, with the House amendment to the Senate dependent pension bill, was laid before the Senate. The bill and amendment were referred to the committee on pensions.

The appropriate appraising officers or collector shall forthwith inform the Secretary of th; Treasury and he shall report all facts to Congress.

May 2.—The committee apoointt-d two years ago by tbe general assembly of the Presbyterian church to report on the constitutional methods of revision of the confession of faith met in this city to-dav.

Dr. Leftwich of Balti more and the Rev. D. E. Kempshaw of Elizabeth, >'. J. The members declined to express any opinion as to the outcome of the conference, or to say anything a< to tbe merits of the controversy concerning rt-vision. The work of the committee is to a large eitent perfunctory. It is not to consider the issue of revision or non-revision in any uianner- Tbey are simply to work npon the line of the manner in which revision may be accomplished, if it is desired. Th«*v are to prepare, for the use and guid'ance of the general assembly, which will meet in Saratoga on May i.x a set of rules for action in the discussion of revision of the confession.

By Cable to tie Journal HAMBURG, May 2,—The streets of Hamburg are infested by night with gangs of robbers, whose depredations have made pedestriauism at !ate hours extremely unsafe. The police teem to be powerless to rem- edv the evil and tne citizens are about to take the matter in their own bands to the extent of denhnir summarily with every footpad caught. an administrative question.

C,, May 2.—The House today debated and finally rejected the international copyright bill. Mr. Flower (N. Y.) presented th« joint resolution of tbe New York legislators in favor of an increase to letter carriers. H*ferred. Mr. Millikin (Me.) presented and the House adopted, the conference report oc. the Lafayette. Indiana public building tbe liiu'it of cost is $80,000. The same action was taken OB th« conference report on the Chester, Pa., public building bilL The limit of cost is fixed at $30,000. On motion of Mr. O'Neill, of Pennsylvania, a resolution was adopted settii-g apart Saturday. June 14th, for tbe delivery of eulogies npon the la f e Samuel J. Randall, of Pennsylvania. The House then resumed the consideration the copv right bill. Mr, Hopkins, of Illinois, said that the ostensible purpose of the bill was to extend the rights of American authors to foreign authors. Bnt tbe measure meant vastly more tHan this. The inevitable" result of it would be to create a gigantic publishing monopoly, which would raise the price of every book and periodical printed in this country and would impose a tar on every reader of books from the. boy with his primer to the college professsor w'tb his scientific work. It would affect the reader of every periodical, and even the reader of" the rural newspaper woulJ suffer. Congress conld not afford to tax every American reader for the benefit of the foreign author. Foreign authors were paid enough in their own country without invading American soil and taxing the American reader. Mr. Simonds (Cean.) defended the bill as conservative of a great natural right—the right to own wbat a man has created. Mr. Bland (Mo. i thought the bill would e-tablish a great publishing monopoly. Mr. Culberson (Texas) thought the measure was intended to enhance the business interests of one class at the expense of the people. The higher grades of American authors did not suffer from competition. Mr. Milk, (Texas) thought the bill would increase the price of the foreign author book and stop the wbeels of civilization by making literature expensive. Mr. Perkins, (Kansas) said that Congress bad no right to enact laws that -would not bring the greatest good to tbe greatest number and the proposed l»w would not stand his te^t.' Mr. Breckenridge (Ky) wanted to know if the same logic would not justify «• law that -would take from Jay Gould his millions. Mr. Peters replied that his argument would prevent such • accumulation of wealth. He said that tbe proposed law would ruin the indnstrv of "patent insides"' and «poil the cheap daily reading of in* people. Mr. Anderson (K>'-) opposed the bill whicb he said wonid take away the profits of the typographical unions in etuxll places evea if it benefited tbe unions in large towns. Mr. McAdoo criticized the class of cheap literature being brought into circulation. He spoke of it as being "na>ty." and whtre there was a copyright law there would be American spirit and soul in harmony with American institution injected into a literature which would be American. Mr. Carlisle (K.y.) supported the bill without knowing its details, because of the general principle involved. , Mr Payson (Illinois) said that the proposed" law would benefit aliens at the expense of the American public. He denied the charge that tbe cheap lite.-ature of the day was trash. 2S"ine-tenths of it was standard literature. The worst feature of tbe bill was that it exacted from otberXationsnone of the privileges for American which it granted to foreigners here. Mr. Lin<5. of Mian., opposed any mete' s wcich would abridge the o'- ^,-iiiaitv of the people to secure c-neap literature. Mr. Lodge- of Mass.. speaking in support of tne bill, said the argument of the opposition was that the bill was going to make literatu e dearer to the American public. It would do nothing of tbe kind;that was tbe barest a-surnp- tioa ever tuade. France bad bad an International copyright for >"«"*; aud scores of books were issued there f->r five cents and even two cents a number and those books IB* be«t literature of France: not the off- scourings of the literary gutters of other countries. It was tne same with Germany. The effect of this law wonid be to substitute for tne works of France, the worksof American authors. Speaking as one who had followed in a humole war the career of literature, he asked whether anyone could imagine that tae American author would not desize » great cirenlvtion and tbe corresponding profit of cheap literature- It wa<= what the author would ratnet have, but no American publisher would attempt- to print American books in any of those cheap edition*. because he had to pay the American a ro\altv and the foreign author none." It'was a direct discrimination against tbe American author, «aa the combination and monopoly that were talked of—where were they possessed? There was one lyw* dormant in the cheap reprint*. U this measure were defeated that trust would leap into life. There was one other appeal he wanted to niaKe. and that was that Congress should furnish to tbe reading public, to tne girls and boys.to the young men aud women of "an impressionable «g« books whicb were American books not foreign books: not the cheap books of France, dedicated ax Kat- thew Arnold said, to the goddess of lubricitv;/nor the second class of English novels about Duke* and Duchesses, and Lords and i*d>«*. not books which contained «le«» hostile to our instttntkms—bnt American books that woald *>**•*»» American ideas and teach Miem to respect and admire An>ert«»» government and' society, and not a [Canttnmed on Foora P»*e.}
