PiTTSBUKGH, Pa., April 10.—The joint inter-state convention of coal operators and miners split Thursday and the fight for eight hours was declared by the latter. The miners opened the ball in .the .morning- by having- a special committee on hours appointed. The committee reported to the convention that it could not come to any agreement, and President Rae of the miners' union submitted the following: "First—That a reduction in the compensation of day labor relative to tlie reduction in hours will be allowed. 'Second—That we proceed to make a wage scale with the understanding that eight hours shall he a day's work alter May 1 without the operator's official. Indorsement, acd if it does not generally prevail within a reasonable time the miners-will not insist on its enforcement." The operators refused to grant this, and in wild confusion the operators adjourned the convention sine die. Col.'Rend, of Chicago, said after the meeting: "A strike, and a most serious one, seems to be ahead of us. If the miners of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania lay down their tools May Lit will paralyze the business. An immense number of manufactories will close down. At least 500,000 people are directly interested in the matter." The sensation of the convention was disclosed Thursday night. It was definitely stated by the miners that the railroads of the country were back of ;he operators in their fight against the eight-hour movement; that the fight vas not only with the miners .but would extend to the railroads also and .he sooner it was throttled the letter. Also that the eight-hour move mfght have some influence on the rates >aid for coal, and for this reason, too, he railroads were opposed to it. The iperators conceded that some western roads were concerned in supporting the fight against eight hours, but they denied that any concerted move had been made by the railroads of the country. A GREAT SCHEME. The United States to Build a South American Hallway—A. Party of Gox-ern- ment Engineers Sail from 2few York to Make a Survey for a I.Ine 3,000 Miles In Length Connecting North America ^sith the Southern Continent. NEW YORK, April 10.—The first material outcome of the pan-American congress to bring about a commercial amalgamation of the United States and the republics of South and Central America will 'have a practical demonstration at noon to-day when the steamship Newport, of the Pacific mail steamship line, sails for South America, carrying as passengers two.corps,of eminent engineers, thor : oughly equipped to make a survey for a railway system 3,000 miles in length and extending nearly the entire length of South America. The party will be absent for about two years. Each member of it has signed a contract agreeing to continue in the performance of his duties for not less than one "year. The salaries of the engineers will be paid by the United States government. The project which they have in charge furnishes the first instance of this republic, in its official capacity, going outside its boundaries to engage in the construction of a public work. Upon its success largely depends the future of Mr. Elaine's scheme to bring about a closer union of the United States and its southern neighbors. The proposed railroad or system of railroads involves in its construction the surmounting of natural obstacles which have hitherto been considered' unconquerable. If American energy solves the problem the, work of the engineers will stand forever as one of the great- est'monuments to 'engineering skill which the world has known. In May last President Harrison sent to congress a message recommending •'a survey of a route 'for an intercontinental line of railroad to connect the systems of North America with those of the. southern c<jntinent,.,to_.be con? ducted .under the direction of a'board of ' commissioners ' representing - the several'American republics." •'-'•'.. '..The steamship Newport will carry the surveying party to Panama, -where ,hey will take a steamship to Guayaquil, the principal seaport town in Ecuador,'»a'd thence they will journey over the Andes mountains .to the capital city of Quito. At a point near there work will be begun. One .corps ""will" travel, southward ;hrough Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, .;hili, and thence. into the Argentine republic, where . connections • can. be made with the num'erous existing railroad lines leading into the capital city of Buenos Ayres. Anothercorps.will'move northward through Ecuador and Columbia to the Isthmus, .of Panama: Each party will survey about 1,500 miles. Fonrfeen 1'eari for Killing Hl» Father. HURON, S.

INDIATTAPOLIS, Ind., April 11.— An im portant change has been made in th legislative reapportionment bill since it was passed and signed by the officers of the senate and house, and'the changi may vitiate the measure. In casually comparing the enrollment and en grossed acts, Deputy Sheriff of State King discovered that Monroe county was not included in any sanatoria' district, and that Gibson county was not included in the list of counties anc districts entitled to representatives. The counties had been included properly in the engrossed • act, but when the bill was enrolled they were both left out A consultation of the state officers was held, and it was determined to insert the counties in the enrolled act Clerk Newkirk, of the house, wa,s sent for and was instructed to underline the names of the omitted counties, which he did. The republicans propose to test the matter in the courts. The defeat of the measure in the courts will revive the old law of six years ago. Or. A, K. Encampment. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., April.11.—The state encampment of the Grand Army began its session Thursday with an ad- 1 dress by Commander Stormont, in which he reviewed the history of the ' order and expressed the opinion that it had now reached its greatest growth.

COLUMBUS, Ind., April 11.—The scare of Friday last turns out to have been merely a scare, at least so far as the great Clark and Jefferson county (Ind.) peach belt is concerned. Advices from the peach kings c£ Indiana, Dean Bros., and .other growers at Henryville, Otto, New Providence and Memphis, - Ind., state that no injury to "peaches can be perceived, and the only harm appears to be the checking of the blossoming for a few days. Undoubtedly some buds will drop off, but this, with the overburdened condition of the trees, will be an advantage and save some work in thinning the fruit. No other fruit was forward enough to be damaged. Forged Indorsements. COLUMBUS, Ind., April 11.—George W.
