Yesterday afternoon and last evening there waa a fair crowd of "Populists" gathered In the north court room to hear the addiess of A. G. Burkhardt of Ttpton, who spoke loudly and long on the issues of the d»y from the Populists standpoint. I» is rumored that a "fight to a finish" occurred last evening at Spencer park between a Pan Handle •hop man and an attache of an East End livery stable and that the fame WM witnessed by a crowd of the par- tiolpant'i friends who were convoyed to t»escene by a couple of street cars. A NOONDAY BLAZE. Fire Htu-t. la m cigar Factory »nd Wltb It* Attendant Deitrorer, Water, Create* Considerable Damage. Yesterday noon when the cigar makers at Younker & Goodrow's cigar factory in the third floor over Martin Bllgh's place on Market street, went to dinner, they left some Stock to dry near a stove in the factory. Before they returned and about 12;80 o'clock one of the men working at Bllgh's discovered signs of fire underneath the roof in the building. He at once notified Martin who telephoned in the alarm and the department was on hands In good order. A pipe was quickly laid and tho fire was extinguished be'oro it had time to spread very far. It had barely broken through the roof and was just preparing for a dls. aatroua tour through the upper part of the building when the fire department put a stop to the display tbat would otherwise have been made. The building belongs to Mr. J. 1). Ferguson, It was not so greatly damaged. The stock in the cigar factory was ruined, what the fire escaped having been destroyed by the water. Thi water poured down onto the second floor, ruining the lur»lture of Mr. Bllgh's apartment* and thence to the first floor where the paper of the saloon wad damaged beyond repair. All told the damage will amount to the neighborhood of *1,000 which is covered by insurance. MiM»**ie«CMMr»r.

The valuable statistical volume just Issued by tho interstate commerce commission says: "The total number of employes In the service of railways In tbe United States on Juno 30, 1892, was 821,415." This, however. Is not a complete statement, for an interesting table which follows, summarizing the employes by classes, ffivea the number por 100 milos of lino as 506. which would make the total mileage at .the date numed lG2.3:3-> miles, whoreas it is elsewhere in the volume stated at 1C1 503. It, appears, however, from another table that there were 9,IOC milesof line not reporting to the commission, and tho statement above evidently should have been modified accordingly. If tho ratio of 506 to tho 100 miles is assumed for the whole mileage then the total number of railway employes in tho United States on June 30, 1892, was 868,108, or nearly •!?,000 moro than above Riven; while applying tho same ratio to tho 177,850 miles which we figure constituted tho railway mlleag-e of the United States on Jan. 1, 1891, wo could say that tho total number of our railway employes is now in round numbers, 1)00,000, In ordinary times thia would bo a correct statement, but unfortunately reduced trattlc and low rales have compelled the railways to diminish their forces to the utmost limit of safety by the chance of many thousands of men. It is to bo remembered also tbat the working forces of railways are always less in January than in June; so that altogether It Is quite likely that, in spite of the increase of mileage over that of tho date of the commissioners' report, the number of persons actually in the employ of our railways today is not above 700,000. It is a distressing thought that perhaps 200,000 men who, if the railways were prospering, might be earning good wages In their employ are now out of work; many of them, with their families, aotua ly suffering for tho necessities of life. An Increase of a fraction of a cent per ton per mile in the average freight rate would have enabled the roads to support a large share of thoeenow idle men, thus affording tho public an easy way of keeping down the army of the unemployed. FURTHER KEDUCTION NOT POSSIBLE. The general and division superintendents of the Pennsylvania lines were recently summoned to Pittsburg to further consider reduction of expenses. There were thirty officials in attendance; and General Manager Wood styles them his association of transportation officers. This organl nation has proved of great value to the company, especially since the general falling off in business. At the meeting, after transacting some routine work, the entire day was devoted to the question of how the expenses of the line* could be further reduced to advantage. Cutilftg down of expenses has now been in progress some months, andslnce December the out. lay has been down to a minimum basis. The question of further reduction was thoroughly canvassed.

The investigation also showed tbat in the last few weeks there had been somethiag of an increase in passenger business and in freight traffic, and the heads of departments are led to believe that while the Increase In traffic ie slow it is steady, and will, in time, resume its usual proportions. The meeting adjourned without trking any action looking to a further redution in expenses. The management of the Pennsylvania lines has decided to continue the present schedule of through trains. There will be no .construction done, except such repairs as are necessary to fully maintain the physical condition of the several properties. Pan Handle switchman Joe Hart wick IB an the sick list.
