MABTIS Ifto»s was once a name to con' jure with, then he was ft leader in the great St. Louis strike, which bronght sorrow, want and suffering into the home of many a working man. Now the honorable bnt inglorious occupation of peanut selling engages his time and thoughts. Then he led men to starvatisn—now he leeks, with filling but innoouofls peanuts, to Stay their stomachs. IT has been promised for a number of years that the Vatican library, containing wonderful treasures in the way of eatly Lat- iti and Greek manuscripts, was to be open to scholar*. After many postponements— the officials of the Vatican are proverbially slow—the promise has now been fulfilled) to the great joy of students of letters. The wonderful things which imaginative people have declared to be in the library are probably not there, but in the 50,000 printed volumes and 25,000 manuscripts there is much' that; is unique and full of interest. : JDST at this time the press of the country has no higher duty to make known to young women the startling fact, now scientifically determined, that habitual gum chewing results in the abnormal development of the masseter muscles which move the jaw and in the deterioration of the fatty substance which produces fair, plump cheeks. Maidens should reflect that marriageable young men, aware of this, will not seek the hands of gum chewers. The thought of an abnormal development of these muscles which move the jaw will give them pause. • LATEST advises indicate that the cholera is rising in China and Japan with ^rnore virulence than in the eastern part of Asia or southern Europe. It is very evident that precautions against the introduction of the scouage by the way of our Pacific coast ports will need to be taken. While it is not at all likely that cholora would be - able to obtain a firm foothold in this country, it will be a vary Wise thing to keep an eye upon immigrants from infected countries and upon dangerous importations, notably rags. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure, especially in the case of a plague. BELIAMITES will learn with' great pleasure that Philadelphia has at lost succeeded in furnishing her citizens gas at moderate prices and yet at a profit. The aggregate receipts were 83,658,000, and out of this , over 81,000,000 remains on hand although the city has hail her own gas free, and has expended §290,000 in new plant. In this statement, however, no allowance is made for interest on the money paid for the existing plant, which would materially cul down the apparent profit. The fact seemi to be that Philadelphia, for the present al least, has shaken off the gas ring, and is thus in a position to prove what everybody believes—that illuminating gas can be made and distributed to consumers at generous profit'at prices far below those usually charged in our cities. THE potatoes are all gone in the blighted districts in Ireland, and the pigs are dying from eating the diseased tubers Along the coast, between Kinsale ant Skibbereen, over half the people will be without food before the autumn has fairl; begun. Already the fever has shown itself, an'd there are indications of an out breau like that which accompanied the famine of 1847. • The Irish newspapers are full of alarming reports, and the parish priests are already begging for relief foi their people. These are the reports by way of London. If one-half they foretell be true, it is high time Mr. Balfour were thinking of some Way of relieveing Ireland more effective and immediate than his land bill. IP visiting proved friendship, the peace of Euoope would certainly be assured, and the idea of Germany ever going to war again would be entirely inadmissible. It only remains for the imperial Teutonic to leave cards at Madrid, Lisbon and Constantinople to complete, his circuit, ol European calls. After he has settled down at home again, he will receive his royal brethern and cousins in succession until the war cloud bursto. Disarmament, the only real gurantee of peacu, does not seem to suggest itself to any oiu. While the soveigns embrace each other, the op pliance for the mutual slaughter of their respective subjects are being increased with almost superhuman activity. THE whole temper and proceedings of the Mississippi constitutional convention are thus far very fair toward both races. The committee on judiciary have reported that whatever qualifications for suffrage are adopted they must be impartially applicable to everybody. Tho drift of opin ion seems to be to discriminate in favor of intelligence and responsibility rather than color. The delegates seem to have been chosen for their fitness rather than their politics, and there are, several instances where both parties and both races united in the choice of a representative in the convention. It was therefore to be expected that the attempt to unseat the ne- gro republican, Montgomery, on technical grounds, would fail. Montgomery is coal- black, and was a slave of Jefferson Davis; he is educated, and defended his rights to his seat with ability. Ilia defense was seconded by one of the most prominent lawyers and democrats in the state. The vote of the convention was almost 4 to 1 in favor of the negro, Montgomery is in favor of a long residence in the state, a poll-tax and the Australian ballot system as conditions of suffrage. THEUE is a certain grim justice in having the first case of Asiatic cholera, reported this year in London, emanate from Indii), the home of the dread disease, rather than from alllicted Spain or any of the ports of the Mediterranean sea. The Knglish in India have never grappled as they ought with the sanitary conditions which breed these terrible epidemics that continually find their way unchallenged through southern Europe. The Iberian peninsula furnishes ruady prey to the scourge on account of its lock of the con ditioiiH of healthful living in its cities and towms; yet the epidemics that rage there are largely generated in Asia under the British Hag. The present epidemic in eastern Spain still shows a formidable front, and 788 deaths out of 1,000 cases of cholera were reported up lo the llth of this month. Thus far, however, severe quarantines hive kept the disease within tWupiwtttiveJy nwrow limits, and isolated cases, {ike thai found, $,($ week in Ufldon, are wlifcely to cause i wider circle of in/ d W ) WBO san ively goed.

THE Canadian deputy minister of agriculture declares that Asiatic cholera will certainly visit Canada next y6ar, and that in order to check its' advance, he proposes to establish quarantine stations in British Columbia on the same plan as that at Grosse Isle. INFORMATION has been received that on the night of Aug. 20, about 800 Haytian troops invaded the territory of Domingo, but were driven out .by Dominican troops. Great indignation is felt at the invasion and the Dominican cabinet has been called together to consider the advisability of declaring War against Hayti. ...

A dispatch fre-m Zanzibar to the Nat ional Zeitung says that the influx of poor Germans into that region is causing a rapid reduction of wages and that only mechanics with some capital have a chance of success. THE British- war ship Buzzarc arrived here Tuesday from Jamaica with yellow fever on board having been ordered to Halifax on accounl of the fever breaking out among the crew.

In some other fields the premjum was reduced from 20 to 16 cent per barrel. HANSHROUOII (North Dakota) introduced in the house a joint'resolution proposing an amendment to the constitution, providing that neither the United States nor any state shall pass a law authorizing the establishment or maintenance of a lottery or any scheme for the distribution of prizes by dmncu. THE weather crop bulletin nays that thn weather during the past week in Minnesota and Dakota was cool for the late crops. Although wheat hus been nearly cut some fields sown in the ev- treme north have been injured. Light frosts also extended over tho extreme northern portion of Iowa but caused no material damage. The recent rains greatly improved the cordition of crops throughout thft corn belt, extending from Ohio westward fo Kansas and Nebraska,-and in this section the condition of corn and potatoes is much improved and the ground is 111 good condition for plowing. A DAUINQ robbery was committed here last night. Charles Leo and Charles Barnes, were riding homo on a street car together when Leo pulled out a roll of bills and boasted that he had more money than Barnes. The latter didn't think so and to prove it ho produced his pocketbook and exposed the contents. Lee grabbed Barnes' monoy and fled. He was chased into a hotel but eluded discovery. Later he was captured while attempting to escape from the house by letting himself down through a window with a rope. He was brought before a justice today and held for examination on Wednesday. EIIIL KOESTEU who was arretted in Philadelphia was charged with embezzling $7,000 from a numVer of societies in Minneapolis., of which he was treasurer.

Mr Quay offered a resolution which was aweed to, expf easing the deep sensibility With which the senate heard of Mr, Watson's death, concurring in the appointment of a committee and providing, as [an additional mark of re- spectj that the senate adjourn. House.— Owing to the sudden death 0 Representative Watson of .Penn., there was no business transacted in the house today. • , „„ TUESDAY, Aug. 26. Senate.— The senate today by unaam- mous consent, agreed to the proposition of Mr. Aldrich in regard to closing the debate-on the tariff bill. Tho substitute for the house bankruptcy bill was reported from the judiciary committe and placed on the calendar. The resolution directing the committeejon rules to prohibt the sale of spirituous, vinous or malt liquors in the senate wing of the capital was taken up but went over until tomorrow.

After some debate, in which Mr. Reagan defendod.the past action of congress and the direct irrigation in the matter of reserving the reservation from settle ment. The conference report on the sundry civil appropriation bill was agreed to.

House.— After the readingof die journal of the house today, Mr. Brosius, of Pennsylvania, demanded the regular order and contented that the unfinished business was the Conger hird bill, the vote upon the passage of which Saturday was inclusive, owing to the absence of a quorum, Mr. Baker, of New York, argued that the business of the speaker's table must first be disooscd of. After considerable debate 01 the'subject, in which Messrs. Cannon and Adams, of Illinois, took part, Speaker Reed decided that tha question before thi house was the roll-call on the passrge o the lard bill. WEDNESDAY, Aug. 27. Semite.—-The resolution heretofore of fored by Mr. Plumb instructing the com niittee on rules to issue such orders as wil wholly prevent the sale of spirtuous vinous and malt liquors in tho senate wing of the capitol, was taken up, the first question being on Mr. Butler s amendment, directing the sergeant-at-arms to make daily in spection of committee rooms and other aprtments. The subject was referred to committee on rules. House.— When the buiness of the housi was resumed this morning the opponents of the lard bill, led by Mr. Mason (rep. of 111.), at once began filibustering tactics After the house had spent much time in roll calls, the previous question on the mo tion to approve the journal was orderee and curried. A altercation arose between Cannon and McAdoo which so far consura ed the day that nothing of importance was done. TnuitsDAY, Aug. 28.

L. wakeman, cultivated an acquaintance with the gypsies. TitiU PEOPLE IN TltB SOUTH Of IJlEiiASfl, feel very hopeful at present. This hopefulness arises largely from the fiwt that 1890 thus far has been an unusually fine season. A a farmer, 85 years of age, told me that never in his memory did the crops look as well in the opening days of July as they do this year. Here, as well as in America, industry has its reward. The beautiful wbitehorn hedges, the cozy and inviting homes, the neat, well-cultivated farms silently yet eloquently tell their own story. It is a fact; explain it as we may—and for obvious reasons I will attempt no explanation—that wherever Protestantism prevails in Ireland there is a widely different condition of things from what there is where Romanism exists. Travelers have frequently observed this. Indeed, it very forcibly arrested the attention both Of Macaulay and Dickens. All persons whom I have heard express themselves on this subject'admit tho existence of wrongs in Ireland that neeel redress. They are a unit in asserting that in these grievances HOMANISTS AND P11OTESTANT8 have been equal sufferers, Roman Catholics tell mo that landlords of their own church have been even to them just as severe and exacting and tyrannical, if not more so, than Protestant landlords. The mosl thoughtful people assert that the landlords have rights which ought to be respected, and that the tenants have rights which ought to be ignored. To a former, and an intelligent one, I said, "How would you view the land question if your landlorel stating in one of tho column of the great papers of America that this long and terrible struggle can'only be justly settled by those who keep in view of. Him who said, 'Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you. elo you even so to them?' " Will- marked emphasis ho repliecl, "You are To attempt to settle it satisfactorily on any other basis is impossible 1 ." Ho ns- sured me that it was not a question to bt settled by either landlords or farmers, aiu that on the part of those who will make a final disposal of it there must be justice judgment and incorruptible integrity Much has been done for the benefit of the farmers, and for this noble class of community there are, I am told, better days yet to dawn. "1 formerly paid 31s per acre," said a farmer to mo, pointing to his well cultivated form, "and I nowpui 17s 6d. My landlord is a good mini, think a great deal of him and he thinks n great deal of me. Of course he wishes to receive as liieth a rent asj possible, and is not thn t natural? I wish to give him as low a rent as possible, and is not that natural too? A reduction has been made ane we both believe that a still further reuuc tion will take, place." The saine farmer like a great many farmers with whom have conversed, had NO FAITH IN Mil. I'AHNEU.. In justice to this political character, who is considered by a great many Irishmen to be an enigma, 1 will wait until'I hear from all clusses a free and full expression of opinion concerning him. With a Ro man Catholic whom I had known very, intimately so:r.e years ago and highly es teemedi I had a pleasant and profitable conversution, nnd though notaUuionis yet hn spoke with gratitude about the im proved coneHtion of things under the pros ent government. Almost every person in Irelanel rejoicei that his island home is situated so near to America, and a few sincerely wish it were nearer still. I have discovered a man who belonss to neither one of thise classes. He affirms that Ireland is situated TOO NKAll AMEHICA, and deeply bewails the fear. "Why, my dear friend," said 1, "has my adoptee countay, a land of which I am proud, done you any injury. Yes ho replied a greal deal of injury. As well might a chile compete with a giant as for us poor struggling Irish farmers' to compote with the great farmers of America. There, yoijr farms are on a collossal scale, and, if I am correctly informed, you have the best machinery in the world. You have excellent steam plow?, reaping machines, bronght to the greatest degree of perfection, a great railway system, and everything else in your favor, so thut von cnn easily deluge our markets with the produce of your Wi'ste-rn Stutes. 1 could wish from my heart I hut one of two things would take place; either that it were possible to row tht islund a little further 11 way from America, or Hint all the doctors of your great republic should unite MI pronouncing it THE WOIIM/H SAN1TAIIIUM. If the latter should take pluceit would do more for Ireland than Patrick did when tho saint banished the snakes." He declures thut the suniluriuni protest would end forever Ireland's troubles arid that her days of weeping would be over. Walking to the ancient city of Armagh from the beautiful village of l<oughgull on a recent Tuesday I overtook a iniddfe-ugpd woman carying a basket ot butter, Sir Walter Scott, if is said, asscrte-il that ho could always learn something frjm a child, and I never yet entoree. into conversation with a farmer's wife from whom I could not learn something. This woman looked weary and careworn. A person very tired is not in a good mood for imparting knowledge. 1 considered that a fair equivalent for a portion of thut woman'n knowledge was to curry her basket of butter. Adelressinif her I suiel, ''1 presume you are tired. Will you ullow mo to curry that basket for you?" With u look of mingleeV surprise and thanU'tilnets on her t'uee she replied: "Indeed, sir, 1 am tired, and 1 would thank you if you would curry it a wee bit for me. I ofVii net u lift, ui"l though this is the market day there ai o not an many horses ,md wrU on the r oud as thwe used to be, Arrah, sir, uro you u stranger ? YOU I,OOK HIKE A MAN t'UOM AUKHIKY." 1 briefly assured the good woman that 1 had fequently traveled thut roud. The rich und melodious sound of church bc'U now broke on our I'urs. Awuy in the dis-, tunceand grgdually coii'ing into view wony two cathedrals, tho Piotestunt und llomnu Catholic, the former carrying one back ',n thought to the opening yaur* of I ho Ilf-Oi century. It seemed as if my follow lijuv- eler to the city of St, Patrick wished i to talk about the good old saint ami his holy labors, and though I was very fur, from being indifferent to lUo- onjoyuient I should derive from a conversation about tho man whose heroic exertions marked u new era in the triumphant/ inarch, of Chri tianity not only in Ireland but in many parts of Europe, yet at thut particular tune I wished to talk about something due. "How does fanning pay, and what are the prospects for /itnuers?"

Ufthloi Wefaaier its a ttoy. Boston Snlnrday Garotte Daniel and his brother Ezekiol were once given directions by the father to perform some kind of farm labor during his temporary absence from home, but On his return at night he found tho labor unpre- forined, and frowning, said: "Wlmthave you been doing, lizekiel?" "Nothing, sir," was t'.ie reply, "Well, Daniel, what have you been doing?" "Helping Zeke, Sir." And there are many more t queer sayings of bis boyish days. It is said that some years after Webster reached his zenith he went out early in the morning over his Marshfield home, and saw an old woman picking cranberries. "What are you about?" said the great jurist! "don't you know its against the law to do what you are doing? She turned round upon him, and fixing her feble old eyes upon him, said:— Mon mnko lawi but cloti't mltul 'GUI ; 1 pick cranberries whorevur I find 'em. Webster said not a word, but turned upon his heel, and the old woman picked cranberries there as long as she lived. When Webster was about seven years of age, his father kept a house of public entertainment, where the teamsters were in the habit of obtaining a dinner and feeding thoir horses, and the in ;ipient orn- tor anel statesman frequently entertained his father's guests by reading aloud the Psalms of David, to the groat delight of his rustic listeners, and it was a frequent remark, when a teamster pulled up his horses at the Webster tavern, "Lot's go in and heara pslam from Dan Webster." Only a few months before his death, Webster, bending under the weight of years and p painful illness, told t'lene and other things at Marshfield to his private secretary. Then came Webster's college days, or rather, first, his days at Exeter under Dr. Ben jn men Abbott, when hn recited his first Latin lessons to the Into Joseph Stevens Bucktninester, at that time a tutor at Philips. His first attempt to "speak in public on the stage" wus a decided failure. For the moment he became embarrassed, nnd then burst into tears. The man, afterward a giant in everything ho undertook, who chould repeat psalms to a few teamsters at thn age of seven, had nn anlip.tthyto public declamation almost insurmountable. But he overcame it, as Luninim goes on to say, by the triumph of his will, und from the Ir.ughing-stock of the pc-hool, he became one of tho best re- citers. When 15 yours old he went toBoscawen, N. II., and his preceptor, Dr. Wood, thought proper to give Daniel a scolding for spending to much of his time upon the hills and along tho streams, hunting anel fishing—failings which he never got over, for he hns often been heard to say "he would rather fish thnn eat." On this particular occasion l.e was assigned a hundred lines of Virgil to commit to memory. Ho spent tho entire night over his books. When tho recitation hour arrived he recited his hundred line's with approbation, "But I haveii few more lines that I c.m recite," eaid the boy Daniel. "Well, let us huve them," said the tutor, und forthwith the boy re'eled of another hundred. "Very rcmarkiib'e. You arc, indeed, a smart boy. "But I haveanother hundred," suid Daniel, "und five hundred of them if you please." AVebsler never took to farm work. His father once sent him from Kxter to go tip to the old homestead nnd assist him in buying u few duj s. He went up and started in und worketl until about 11 o'clock in the! forenoon. Ho complained to his mother thut his hands were blistered and ho didn't like tho work. His kind mother excused her favorite son, anel about an hour ufle?r dinner fhis father beiing away) young Daniel tnckled up the family horse, pa-keel two of lii« sisters in the wagon, and druve ull ufter huckleberries. Thn ended his furming days. Buck to school went the incipient statesman. Webster was only u few months prepur- ing for college, during which brief period lip mastered the study of Greek, so that his tutor said in that short time he acquired what it took other boys an entire year to accomplish. Daniel was, us u boy, the sickliest and most slender of all his father's children, yet from his earliest boyhood he was a great devourer of the standard books of the day, such as Pope's translation of Homer, the "Essay on Man," and Addison's "Spectator," the second of which ho committed to memory in Dart- mo ith college. Although he had i ot 'o ik- ed ,tlu9 through since his 15th year, he was, says Lanuian, a short time before his death in 1852, able to recite most of it from begining to end. The Biblei and Shukespeare was his great favorites, und he would ul most to tho day of his death recite from memory many of the psalms and hymns of Dr. Watts.

It is astially from eighteen to thirty feet in length, and has a large month, we'l suplied with strong', conical, curved teeth. In color it is black above and White below, with a white patch above each little eye. It is easily distinguished from its relatiree by the dorsal fin, which is Sometimes six feet long, and rises abruptly from the back. To call this creature the "wolf of the sea" does not tell half the story of its savage nature. The wolf seems a pnnj foe compared to the orca. Por there are animals on land which the wolf dares nol attack, even when hard driven by hunger; but therQ is nothing inhabiting the water which the orca wiirnot assail, Moreover! the Wolf is almost cowardly except When made dangerous by famine; but the orca is always dangerous, or can not satisfy its hunger. That its appetite is insatiable seems likely, for an orca was once found choked to death by a seal which it had tried to swallow whole. An eaaminatioh shbwed that the gluttonous monster had already sWalloweeTa number of porpoisesj besides several seals. An if not satisfied with the harm it can do alone, the orca secures the aid of two or three of its fellows, and then the little back of monsters starts on an expedition. Everything is game to them. If a school of dolphins come in sight, away go. the fierce sea-wolves in hot chase. The frightened dolphins elaeh madly through, the waves, urged to their swiftest speed bj terror; but (rrimely tho ravenous pursuers closed upon the flying quarry.

They rush at him hero, there anel everywhere, He opens his huge mouth to engulf them, they only mock at tho danger, and soon, wounded in a hundred places, wnukonce und powerless, the whale succumbs. Even the fierce walrus, urmed will enormous tusks which it well knows how to use, is no match for the orca. It is only tha young walrus, however, foi which the orca cares, and it will not hesitate to pursue oho into the very midst o: a herd of walruses, trusting to flu perio; swiftness to enable it to carry off the pro; in salty. The young walrus is we! 1 aware of it danger, and the moment an orca comes it sight the poor thing climbs frantically upon its mothers back, and clings there in agony of fear. The wild orca is not to be foiled so easily, however. It dive down and then conies up with a sudden surge, striking the mother walrus such t blow that the little one is knocked froir her back into the water and is seized in a twinkling.

TBMIS HAOTE, Ind, Aug. 25-At 6 o'clock this evening the following message was sent out by the council of railway em- ' yes, signed by the president Sargent 4 Sheehiin to Powderly, at Albany: 1 'The supreme council adjourned this afternoon after carefully considering the strike in all its details. You will note the result of our deliberationiti tonight's dispatches, which it is hoped Will meet with your approval. The council was unanimous in considering 1 yerUr position and the grand executive board most earnestly hones that the right of which you are the champion, in the gr«at conflict on the New York central may finally and powerfully prevail." An official statement of the council given to an associated press representative is as follows: Headquarters Supreme Council United Order Railway Employes^-To all laboring organizations, men and brothers; "On the night of August tth, a strike began on the Now York Central and Hudso^ River railroad, involving about 800 men in the employ of the same road, who were members of the great labor organization known as the Knights of Labor. The reason set forth by Powderly, chief executive of the order, may be summarized as follows; The peremptory discharge of between fifty and sixty men, "mployes of tne road anel members of the Knights of Labor, without giving them any reason whatever for their discharge. Prior to tht strike the men involved sought, through the representatives of their order to have their grievances adjusted, but thoir appeals being disregarded astrike was inaugurated. "At this juncture Powdtrly, the general master workman of the knights of labor entered upon the task of adjusting the difficulty and making such arrangements as would result in an honorable peace between the employes and officials e;f the road, but his efforts were" unavailing. Powderly, comprehending the purposes ol Walter Webb the thirei vice president of the company to make war upon the knights of labor and ultimately upon all th" labor organizations or hie road, sought a conference with the supreme council of the united order of railway employes. The request of Powderly was grunted to the extent that four members of the council of the chief executives of tho federated orders met him in the city of Buffalo, viz.; E.P.Sargent, grand master of the brotherhood of locomotive firemen and the supreme council; G. W Howard, grand chief of the brotherhooc of railway conductors • and vice 1 president ot the supreme council; S. E. Wilkinson granJ master of the brotherhood of railway trainmen, and Frank Sweeney, gram muster of the switchmen's mutual aid association. At the conference with Powderly at Buffalo, the members of the supreme counci became satisfied that the officials of the road by every consideration of fair ane honorable treatment of tho labor organiza tions should meet Powelcrly nnd adopl some just plan foi the adjustment of the grievance of the striking employes. This conclusion having been reached, the members of tho supreme council in response to u request of Powderly, extended thcii journey to New York, to afford such aid as was in their power to bring about a settlement between Vice President Webb the official having full authority on al matters pertaining to the Btrike, and Powderly, having authority to neitotinte such nrrangements for the knights" as might end the dispute. The interview having been secured Powderly sought to have the mendis- churged heara in their own defense in the presence of Webb and hinnelf. This fair und honorable proposition wus refused. Powdcriy proposed an arbitral ion, whic.1 wus nlso refused. Other propositions were mades by Powderly, having for their objec an honorable settlement of the existing trouble, all of which were refused on the part of Webb. "The memmbers of the supreme coun cil, while in Buffalo und New York, hue ample opportunities to'thoroughly infqrn themselves upon all matters concerning the strike. They saw und heard botl sides, they appreciated the gravity of the situation nnel comprehending the impending consequences to the labor orgnniza- tions deemed it advisible to convena the supreme council for deliberation one such conclusions us facts should warrant In response to the order of Sergent, presi- elent of the supreme that the body was convened at Terre Haute S,ttur- diiy the 23rd, August 1890, and remiainoc in session until noon Monday the 25th. In making their report to the council, the members who went to Now York to confer with Powderly found all tho statements made by him fully corroborated by facts In tin interview with Webb, he refused to entertain any proposition looking to a settlement of the difficulty. He would nol arbitrate any question or make any explanation or concession whatever with regard to tho discharged employes. He claimed the right to discharge employes at will without making an explanation, cr giving to the victims of Ins power any reasons for his despotic action. He woulc manage his road to suit himself without reference to any rights claimed by its em- ployes, or any rights clajmed by labor organizations to interfere in the matter to protect their members. The council having heard the statement of its members who hiid visited New York for the purpose of nscortainirg tho true condition oi uffuirs, exhuustiyoly discussed every im- portunt proposition and arrived at conclusions as follows: ' -. "First—That tho position of the knights of labor, as set forth by Powderly, the general muster workman, and general executive board of the knights ol labor, meets with our unqualified approval. "Second—The course pursued by Webb towards Powderly and the' Knights ol Labor, notwithstanding his declarations to the contrary, evinces a purpose to disrupt and elestroy labor organizations on the Now York Central and Hudson River ruilroud, as elone by Austin Corbin on the Philadelphia and Reading. "Third—The policy of Webb is despotic to an extent that outrages every principle of American citizenship, and if generally adopted would, if successful, reduce the American workingmun to a degraded con< dition of uffuirs. "Kourth—Webb, by the employment ol Pinkerton thieves, thugs and murderers, vile wretches from the slums and brothels of New York and other cities to kill the workingmon because they dured to protest uguiiv t his rule, and strike for their rights is a crime of such enormity as will associate the name of Webb forever with those who "dressed in u little brief authority," have used their money to secure power to degrade their fellow men. "Fifth—That the efforls now bcsing put forth by Webb to destroy the knights of jubor would, wore circumstances changed, in like manner bo made to destroy tho or- gunizutions of engineers, tiremen, con- eluctors, trainmen and switchmen, and 'if successful, it is only a question of time when a similar effort will be made to seal the tato of other labor organizations. "Sixth—Webb, by the course has pursued toward tlie knights of labor and tho representatives of labor organizations, bus shown a total diuregarel of thoao principles of citizen sovereignty, desired b> every American worthy of the name, anc considering only the money power of the company he represents, his acts, which upeuk louder than words, say iii tho language of W. H. Vimelorbilt, once the autocrat of llio New York Centrul,_ 'The public bo damned.' "Spvonth—Webb seeks to support this arrogant attitude towards the workingmen and labor organizations by assuming that the New York & Hudson River rpi}- road iu private property, and that his acts in the treatment of his employes is in »o sei\se a public concern; that b,e <!ftu with impunity discharge men and rumuud th«m to idleness and poverty aj»d render them hiiuolces wanderers, wit/bout giving uy reason or explanation whatever for .its epiiduct, dUriiguA-dhig the foot that the owpwrnopv tyr vW«h atheto of justice wtere his millions ted rther millions which he represents, cease 0 be potential in deciding a question of his kind. In Vie* of the Foregoing facts, he siapf erne council puts oj>ot» record its unanimous end anqualified aptirwalof he strike on the New York Central & ludson River railroad for the causes eel orth by Powderly, as also the efforts made >y Powteiy to bring the strike to an lohorable termination. "In this general expression of approval of Aft Action of the knights of labor, the course of Webb is uneqflivocally con- demtied. The powers of the supreme council in the manner the strike has been exerted to aid the knights of labor through ;heir representatives to secure the recognition of their order by the officials of the rich and powerful corporation to secure •or the workiftgm_en, the victims of autocrat power d, hearing and to perform such other kindly offices as were proper under the circumstances demonstrating sympathy and good will thereby aiding the knights of labor to bring the strike to a close upon the principles, of right and justice. In this, the council met with failure, owing to the autocratic attitude of Webb. It now becomes necessary for the supreme council to eay that owing to the fact that the order of knights of labor is not a member of the federated orders of railway em- ployes, the laws of the supreme council do not permit its doing more than it has don^ to aid the knights of labor, and its ability to participate otherwise in the strike is now known and appreciated by Powderly. "Referring to the laws of the supreme council relating to strikes, the matter is concisely presented as follows; In the first place, if the members of either organization have a grievance it is submitted to the proper officers of the grievance committee, In event of the failure to obtain satisfaction, the chief executive officer of the order having the grievance is called upon and in connection with the committee which seeks amicably to adjust the difficulty. If failure still attends their efforts to adjust the trouble, then the supremo couiicil is convened at the headquarters of the railroad officials, with whom the conference is requested, and its influence is exerted to obtain a settlement, alike just to all parties. If failure still follows their efforts to remove the cause ol complaint and the council, by unanimous vote, decides the grievance to ue of such gravity as will justify a strike, then it is promp'tly ordered, in which event all of the members of the various organizations employed on a road where the grievance exists, viz., firemen, conductors, trainmen and switchmen abandon their work. In conclusion the supreme council places upon record its high appreciation of the manliness of the Knights of Labor em ployed on the New York Central in struggling to maintain a principle sacred U every workingman on the continent, ant to all who love justice and hope for the triumph of right over wrong as flagrant af ever stained the pages of history." _ Signed, FKANK P.

The members o each troupe have openly declared their in tention of fighting for their masters, if the quarrel ends in a general fight. There can be no doubt but that it is only througl the efforts of the civic authorities tha Lloodshed up to the present has been avoid ed. Dr. Carver has been following Col Cody all through the -latter's tour of tin cities of the continent and his perform ances have been better patronized thar Bill's. Carver stole u march on his riva and arrived in Hamburg three days ahead When Cody got here he found he wn obligee to pitch his tent a few feet fron Carver's show. Carver mnde arrange ments for an exclusive supply of electrii light and left Cody in the dark. The members of both camps took up thenmttei and it was throught the strenuous efforts of the police officers that a fearful figh was prevented. Hamburg is filled with a howling mob of Indians and cowboys whc are waiting for a chance to scalp eacl other. The town is covered with posters of both parties. As soon as Cody s bills are pasted up Carver's assistants come around and tear them off and put the! own in place. It is an open secret thai while Carver did an enormous business in Berlin and Vienna Cody fell flat. Sunday Cody and Carver opened at the same time Carver gave two shows and had 30,00 visitors, while Cody only gave one, which was attended by 7,000 persons. It i rumored that the syndicate that brough Buffalo Bill to Europe this year has lef him, so that he h handicapped for wan of money. Both leaders have announce^ an indefinite stay at Hamburg, which i filled with visitors who are afraid tha serious trouble may break out at any moment.'

PiTTSBuno, Aug. 28.—Charles Rainey, B former Pistsburg man, is illegally restrained of his liberty in Torrado, state of Ohipnso, Mexico. Mr. Rainey is the cousin of the well-known coke man o£ the same name, ane' also a cousin of E. V. McCandless, of this city.

He was employed in running the line of the Mexican Pacific railway in South;, west Mexico. The writer says that some months ago, during a dispute with some of tha Mexicans employed on the road, he, in self defense, drew a revolver and threateneelto use it.

Oruslmin'M Opinion* on Hunk CnlliT.tionx INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 27.—Judge Grea- hain yesterday handed down an opinion in the cose of the Comm srcial bank of Cincinnati against the Hamilton National bank of Fort Wayne, which is of general interest to banks and bankers. The-case grew out of the failure of Fletcher & Sharpe. of Indianapolis. Judge Greslmin. holds, in effect, that when one. bank owns E aper and sends it to- another for eol- ation, indorsed "pay for collection," and it passes through a chain of banks thus indorsed, the bank making the collection is held to thu responsibility of seeing- that the funds roach the original owner of the paper. If this decision should be upheld it will doubtless result in banks remitting collections directly to the owner of the paper and not back through the chain of banks through which it is transmitted.

While in West Superior she wrote the tet- ter to Horton which will be read in St. Paul Thursday.
