HAKDON THE MINERS. Little Work mid I'mnpects of Orcut Dcutl. till Ion. CINCINNATI, Jan I,-!.—The .year 1894 .will long be remembered by tho people of this locality as one of the hardest in its experience. And the new year does not hold out any glittering prospects. This community-is largely interested in coal mining, and it is the almost'complete stagnation of that industry that has made it so hard for tho people. The Merchant's and tho Thistle have shut down. The closing of these mines is caused by the low price of coal which renders mining unprofitable. The Albert, Slreator and Cincinnati 'mines are still mining occasionally, but none of them are malting anything and tho miners are running behind in wages. From present indications there will be at least five hundred families in this locality in dcsti- tijte circumstances before winter is jnuch older.

One held up the three occupants of the car with' a revolver while the other tied their hands and then robbed the safe with the keys taken from the express- man.

DES Moistes. Jftrt. 14-.—The board of railway commissioners, composed of J. W. Luke, (leorgd W. t'erkins and Peter A. Dey, has filed two reports on the application of the railroads for an increase in freight rates. The majority report is signed by Commissioners Perkins and Luke, who give as their reasons denying the increase that the present rates were not shown to be ttn- I'emunerative, and that railway losses have been heavier in interstate freight than Iowa business. Commissioner Dey, in the minority report, holds that rates should be raised almost as much as the railroads asked, and says he has always thought the Iowa, rates were two low. FIRE AT FOSTER. OTTUMWA, Jan. 13.—Word has been received here that the mining town of Foster is almost swept away by fire. About twenty-five buildings, including eight stores were burned. The high winds made it impossible to check the conflagration.' Twenty families are homeless. Loss $'.'0,000. A decree has been entered in court in a suit for abutting damages against the elevated road ut Sioux City which is in accordance with a supreme court decision to the effect that an elevated road is not a street railroad and the builders are liable for abutting damages. It requires that .the damages assessed- by the jury be paid in twenty-fivo days, and, failing, the sheriff is ordered to remove the track. The road belongs to the King, Bridge company and the decision requires that it pay abutting damages for over a mile on Third street. The assessment was at the rate of $1500 for every lot of sixty feet front on the street. It is said that 3.- C. Mubinger, a capitalist of Keokuk, has prepared a Scheme which will revolutionize the affairs of Hancock county, 111. He says that if the city will grant him a contract to light Keokuk with electricity for twenty years he will agree to build a high bridge to extend from Fourth street iu Keokuk to the Illinois bluff at Hamilton, over a mile distant, the bridge to cost $400,000. He will, if properly encouraged, put a railroad track on this bridge and run an electric car line across on it, extending the lines to Carthage, Warsaw, El Vaston. and jSfauvoo, in Hamilton county, 111., thus giving- those towns 'splendid freight, mail and passenger service and also supply them with heat and light. The city of Oskaloosa is considerably aroused over a case now being- tried in the district court in that city. Judge David Ryan presiding. The case is of a peculiar nature and is docketed Chew vs. O'liara, F. P. OT-Iara & Co., grocery dealers, employed Chew as a clerk for a number of years. Nearly a yeai' t ago O' Tiara suspected that money was being taken from the drawer by some of his clerks, and after setting his traps he finally concluded that Chew was the man and accused him. A ccord- ingly Chew paid over to O'liara §1,000 tifs settlement or hush money, Nothing more .was thought about tho matter until a few weeks ago, when Chew brought suit agains^t the O'Hara company to recover the 81,000 and $5,000 damages. Chew alleges that he was scared by their threats into paying the §1,000, and that the wholes scheme was blackmail. •' All of the parties in the case are of high social and business standing-. The Ottumwa city council in caucus recently decided by a unanimous vote not to accept the property trust im- l osed by the strange will of the late Senator Ballingull, recently decided to 1 e valid by a decision of the supreme t ourt, which reversed the decision of Judge Burton setting it aside. The will bequeathed property to the amount of $150,000 to the city to be held in trust by them, with the rentals and profits to be distributed among a number of charities and public institutions, The principal piece of property is the Uallingall hotel, which, by the provisions of the will, would have "to be conducted by the city council and tho profits go to the various funds mentioned by Colonel Ballingall }n his will, Judge Burton set the will, aside. The supreme court reversed his decision, opining that if the city council declined to accept the trust, the court could appoint trustees to care fqr'itfor the city. The prospect of becoming landlords, with a possibility of doing chamber work-, or cooking pastry, or waiting on table in order to make tho venture financially successful, frightened the dignified uldprmen and they believed the supremo court plan offered a graceful way of getting out of it, which they embraced.

Another Batch ot Corr&B|k>iic1<-nee Submitted. WASTTOOTON, Jan. Ji.— The president ti-ansmitted to congress another batch of Hawaiian correspondence. tt is made Up entirely of communications between the state department and Minister Willis, and deals practically entirely With two points: First, that there is a cliff efencc of opinion between Minister Willis and Adm 1 Walker as to the necessity of maintaining a trailed States vessel at Honolulu, and as to the political designs of Great Britain ott the Ha%vaiian Islands. Minister Willis is of the opinion the Hawaiian government is fully able to maintain itself* in which he is in accord with the opinion of the government itself; and further, that the general course of the British oflicials at Honolulu did not indicate any desire to build up a political power there. The second point in the correspondence and the one which occupies most of the space relates to the negotiations between the representatives of Great Britain and the Hawaiian government looking to the leasing of Meeker island, or some other uninhabited 'portion of the Hawaiian group for a cable station between the Canadian and Pacific islands in possession of Groat Britain. The correspondence shows the Hawaiian government felt that under the terms of the treaty with the United States, it could make no lease except with the consent of the American government. The president in his message accompanying the correspondence calls attention to tho matter and expresses the hope that congress will see fit to grant the request of the Hawaiian government to the proposed lease, which would be of great advantage to that country without apparent detrimcnt-to this. A GREAT CALAMITY., Four Hundred I,lvo» Wore Destitute. and 3',OOO MIXNEAI-OT.IS, Jan. 10.— In his inaugural message Governor Nelson urges uniformity of municipal charters, urges the completion of the plan for a new capitol in St. Paul and makes the following reference to the great Ilinckley calamity: "On the first day of last September a forest fire was lashed into fury by a high wind and totally destroyed the villages of Ilinckley, Sandstone, Sandstone Junction, Finlay son, Miller, Pokepama, Pardridge and Mission Creek, and devastated a large tract of country occupied by small farmers. More than 400 lives were lost, a large number were maimed or crippled for life, more than 3,000 people were left destitute and over | SI, 000, 000 worth of property was totally destroyed. The territory devastated by the fire embraced an area of nearly 400 square miles. " He adds that 898,131.58 was collected by voluntary contributions in aid of the sufferers. MISSIN6.

LONDON, Jan. 15.—Since the British Anti-Lynchiug league was organized last summer through the efforts of Miss Ida B, Wells, the society has steadily grown in strength and influence, and now numbers among- it members many men and women of note. If interest in the work lias lagged somewhat of late, the reports of the recent outrages in Georgia and Louisiana has acted as an impetus in reviving tho enthusiasm of the association. In an appeal to the ! people just issued from the general i headquarters in this city, the racial j troubles nt Quitman, Georgia, are com- I pared witli the Armenian outrages in point of barbarity and cruelty. It states that the American papers of the past few months 'have been but a record of horror and atrocities, and appeals to the people of England for funds to aid''in the work of suppressing the outrages.

New York dispatch: .lohn William Goff, the new recorder, took, his seat on the beuch as the presiding judge of the Court of General Sessions of Peace in the city and county of New York. The new recorder charged the grand jury with the duty of investigating the charges of oppression and prosecution against public officials. A terrible accident, resulting in great loss of life, occurred in the bay at Ilio Janeiro recently. The boilers of a steamer in Port Nictheroy, which had a large number of excursionists on board, exploded. The steamer caught fire, and a great number of thp'se on board of her jumped overboard to escape the flames. Altogether 120 persons were drowned. 3 In a recent communication a special agent of the department of agriculture, who is making inquiries under direction of the secretary of agriculture into the general subject of our trade with |Germany in live stock and meats, offers some observations on the necessity of shipping only the best goods abroad, if we arc to retain any trade with foreigners. He says: "The sales of American lard and canned goods in general are increasing constantly. It can be said that Germany will always be a good market for these products, providing the American exporters furnish only the best goods. Purchasers do not always receive the goods contracted for, thereby doing' our export trade a great injury. I fully understand the prime qualities of lard arc not sent abroad. It seems that sometimes the most inferior stuff, put up and used in America as axle-grease, is sold here and at the smaller places where the sanitary regulations are not as strict. ' Washington dispatch: Secretary of State Gresham has submitted to congress a general plan for publishing the valuable historical manuscripts of revolutionary days now in the archives of the state department. The recommendation was called out by a provision of the last sundry civil appropriation bill, calling for a report from the secretary of state, Mr. Gresham refers to the great value of the manuscripts, embodying the collections of Washington, Franklin, Jefferson, Madison and Hamilton, as well as the journals of the Continental Congress. It is pointed out that the .papers are liable to serious injury and defacement owing to the constan* .perussl'of them by students and writers. The secretary recommends their publication in a set of fifty volumes, at a cost of SflOO,- 000 for the first edition of 1,000 volumes. He suggests, however, that the work should be done gradually, on an appropriation of 835,000 annually, and under the supervision of a competent editor and staff, A crowd of about a 000 workingmen who were thrown out of employment by the recent financial collapse,' gathered before the legislative chambers at St. Jonns, N. F, Later they paraded the principal streets, At the head of the procession was borne a white flag bearing the words: "Work or bread," The movement caused consternation, After hooting the government, the procession went to the dock where is berthed the British warship Tourmaline. A committee of the unemployed boarded the 'ship and represented to Captain Poor bow they and their families were starving. The captain expressed a willingness to help the worldntynien as far as he could, He promised to write to the govern* ment nrjfing that help be extended, The delegation then withdrew. Starv< ation is bei oining more general cjauy. The government was waited upon by a committee of the clergy.

"But in three weeks the pain began to leave us.

A Still niiionl, Regarding Peace Negotiations. PAKIS. Jan. !).—A Shanghai dispatch states the Chinese envoys appointed to negotiate peace with Japan are instructed to accede to no demands for the surrender of Chinese territory. They will treat only on the basis of granting' independence to Corea and paying indemnity to Japan. LONDON, Jan. 10.—The Central News correspondent at Seoul telegraphs that the king of Corea proceeded to the ancestral temple and there formally declared the independence of Corea. He was accompanied by the members of the cabinet and other high functionaries of the government. The royal party was escorted by a body of soldiers armed and equipped in modern style. PBKIJT, Jan. 10.—The Chinese envoy to negotiate for peace with Japan had a farewell audience with the emperor. Japan refuses to grant an armistice. Mr. Denby, the American minister, believes that the negotiations will be fruitless. The Japanese will withhold their terms for peace until they shall have occupied Pekin.

No ItoviBion Probable this Session of Congress, WASHINGTON, Jan. 13.— The house ways and nie'ans committee met for the first time in many months. Important developments wore expected, in view of the government's need of increased revenue. No positive action was takpn, however, beyond the reference of several questions; to sub-committees, The action of the committee is considered as indicating there wjll " be no tariff legislation pu&hed at this session. Wilson said the revenues showed a promising increase since the woolen schedule went into effect. Reed thought this was only temporary. Whiting thought it would bo continuous and would develop a healthy increase in the revenue. A resolution of Pence, of Colorado, asking the secretary of the treasury to inform congress as to the advisability of increasing the beer tax, was voted down without division on the ground that the matter was already covered in the annual reports to tlic treasury department. The bill of Money, of Mississippi, far an increased beer tax, was referred to a sub-com mittee on iuterpa' revenue.
