A group of llio vvorkcis In tlio mall
hog ropalr shop weio eagerly discussing
tlio article in j ester-day's CniTio de
scribing tlitf stato of nffalrs In that
branch of tlio Government's depart
ment. One had seen Tim Oiutio's ar
ttcld and hail shown It to the others, and
tho demand for Oiiitks from tho news
boys went up at once soVen hundred
per cent. The women rejoiced, and
yet sonio wcro fearful. They wcro
afraid of being charged with Inciting
tho expose. That meant to them sum.
mary dismissal. For a long ttmo they
have wondered why the ovll had not
been "written up." but no ono had had
the courago to attempt to Interest any
newspaper In tho matter. Their frlonds
wcro awaro of tho state of affairs, but
could do nothing. It was with great
relief then thai they saw that they had
ono outspoken friend in tho District
Tho more the inquiry into tho sub
ject is pushed, tho worse things ap
pear. Ono lady for there arc intelli
gent andcultmcd ladles there spoke of
ono hag of which slid knew, which
took an hour and n quaitcr to mend.
TKcro wero between thirty and forty
hole's In it. Imagino trying to mend
forty such bags in a day on a penalty of
being discharged. But "forty bags or
go" te tho Postolllco Department
"I am unwilling to believe that Mr.
Wnnntnakcr Is fully awaio of tho con
dition of things," one worker said,
"for ho docs not drive his workers In
his Philadelphia place llko that, not
withstanding the Democratic reports."
It was learned that the Department
has placed the maximum earnings of
any ono person at $50 a month. As was
Htatcd yesterday, each worker is paid
three cents a bag for every bag mended
over -10 a day. Those who mend CO
consequently make (10 conts a day over
Ihcir wages, or, for the 20 working days
of tho month, $15.00 above their salary,
a magnificent total of $45.00. The De
partment watchmen receive $40 at tho
lowest, and their hardest task is wear
ing out tMo bottoms of their chairs. But
that Is little enough.
Ono of tho fast workers said that she
mended sometimes as many as 80 or 90
a day. Under this rule, however, she is
barred from cainingovcr $50. So no
matter how hard she might work, even
if she mended an nvcingo of 00 a day,
sho would not bo paid In full for her
This worker was inclined to doubt
the charge that thcie was favoritism in
tho shop. At any lato sho declared
that while she could mend moro than
tho forty she was not favored. Some
days she icccivcd very bad bags, and
consequently could not keen up to her
average. She, however, said that she
had been woiking there u long lime,
was strong and used to the work and
it was not so hard for her as It was for
somo of them thcie. She said that It
was worse under tho present Adminis
tration. Formerly they could assist
one another. Imt all that was now done
awny with. Every worker had to lest
on lier own mciits. No fast and willing
one was allowed to lend a compassionate
hand to her companion.
bl'MMAUY DISMISS IT..
As was staled yesterday, tho wmkers
Ubc a stout tlucad like twine and a
sailor's needle, and have to sew what Is
known as the sailoi's stitch, similar to
the well-known embroidery stitch. That
stitch and that alone can be used. One
day the man Incharco observed that
one of tho workcis had not learned tho
proper stitch, or at any rato was not
using It. No time was wasted In ro
monstrances. Tho work was taken
fiom her and sho was discharged on
tho spot. The act was effectual.
Among tho workers is a blind woman.
She is c.peit with tho ncedlo and docs
her work with tho neatness and deft
ness of tho blind. But the rulo "forty
bags or go" holds no exception for her.
Yet such a stoim of indignation would
be aroused if sho should prove unfor
tunate and bo told to suffer her penalty
that those in chargo would doubtless
hesitato before tlioy carried their threat
into action. What aro known as the
strlngeis have not been referred to bo
fore. Their duty is to run tho strings
through tho holes at the mouth of tho
bags and clasp them in place. It is a
tedious and often painful work. For
merly they were paid $15 a month, but
this has been cut down to $'J0 and (hey
must string 150 a day. For each ono
over thnt they reecho aceitatng.
The repoit is circulating thai tlm De
partment thinks this is too (xoi')itant
and will cut down the price to n quarter
of a cent a bag.
Evidently .sonic inkllii" of tho condi
tion of affairs has l cached those In con
trol, for now it is said that tho "stint"
for mending bags Is to bo reduced to
thirty-live and the salary to $23. Just
Imagino a day laborer being told that,
he must drive his pick Into tho ground
a certain number of times a mlnuto.
Ho Is hired on his general reputation,
and hk employer is satisfied If ho keeps
faithfully at woik The number of
spadefuls of dirt which ho has lifted is
not weighed and measured at the end
of tho day. But theso women are not
accorded tho consideration given a man
who docs the humblest Kind of manual
labor. It is "foiiy bags or go."
1 T K AT TIIK DEPARTMENT.
Yesterday's aitlclo was tho nhsorhlug
subject of conversation among Postoftlcu
Department olllcials to day as well as
citizens geucially. Tho oposltlon of
the condition of things was a rovelatlon

Vhltlleld. Owing to tho
heavy demand which was mado unon

turn over to Captain Culleii tho super
intendency of the shop and tho appoint

cannot icgtilato tlm pay and task of
these woiking women. Thattsdouo
by tho Postolllco Department. A
Ciutu man called upon Colonel AVhil
Held today to nscei tain tho Depart
nciits position in regard to these wo
men. It Is ghen below in Iho wouls of
"Thero is no Intention upon tho pirt
of this Department to Inlllct hardships
upon tho woikcis in tlio shops, to over
work them or uudoipay them, Tho
bhop must bo conducted upon a strictly
business basis, however. AVo flud tho
jiiescnt system to bo productive Qf tho
best icsulti. It Is easy to find women
who con maintain nnavciagoof forty
bags a dnv, tho average required, os
pctially when wo gho them thirty days
in which to become familiar with the
work. There aro women In tho shop
who run as high as sWty bags a day,
and any number who do over forty
five. The get three cents for each hag
over forty. This demonstrates clearly
that it is not a hardship indicted upon
them to require foity bags a day. There
aro women who enter tho shop totally
unacquainted with needlework They,
of course, cannot maintain the avcrago
of foTty bags, and must give way for
some ono more proficient with tho
ncedlo who ran maintain it.
"Now, as to the piyj just contrast tho
compensation of these workers with tho
pay of other needlewomen, those who
make shirts and pants, and you will
see tho compensation of tho women in
the repair shop is proportionately bot
tcr. If wu should pay those women so
much per piece for their work thcro
would be thoso among them who would
not earn $10 a month, becauso tlioy
would not lnuoa lcnuiiemcntfor better
work. Then tho public would say- wo
worked women at staivatlon prices.
The present system is tho best and tho
compensation is as high as will justify
a maintenance of tho shop."

"Scip" Dundy returned yesterday
fiom AVashington, where ho spent ten
days among the clubs and high officials.
"AVashington," remarked Sir. Dundy,
ns ho deposited his heel on his ofllec
desk, "Washington Is a good placo to
go to, but a better placo to slay away
from. Viewed from the wilds of the
AVcst, AVashington Is a dream, a vision
of grace and beauty and eternal delight;
at tho Capital City itself AVashinston-ls
a staitllng reality. A stranger to Amer
icans anil American llfo need go no
further than AVashington to learn much
of tho habits of Brother Jonathan's
people and tho uniqueness and variety
of Ihcir existence. Within tho limits ot
that city is crowded the representatives

AVashington Is the United States, and

cvciybotly In AVashington was a sage,
ami that the vciy aii was tho death of
the unlearned. But I have learned
that all is not gold that glitters, and that
tho ncaicr ono comes to great men the
smaller tho great men appear.
"Why, sir," exclaimed Mr. Dundy,
biinging his fist down upon tho table,
"tho general public there has but llttlo
general and useful infoimatlon. Out

not find a man who had ever heard of
Falls City, but on tho other hand I met
many who had no idea where the placo
was. The ignoranco of some of those
people Is actually exasperating. Com
paratively fow people knew Dave fier

actually asked mo who ho was. In the

alluded to 'Eighteenth ami Faiman,'

The expected icturn of Dr. Talmage

nacle ncaily lost him twice, says a
wiltci In the Biooklyn Citizen. Some
years ago, just beforo pow renting time,
the newspapers stated that Dr. Talmage
had received an oiler of $12,000 a. year
from a Chicago congregation. It stincd
up tho trustees and a meeting was called
at the dominlo'b house. One of them
said that they had heard that he had io
cetved the olfcr alluded to.
"AVcll," said he, "whatdo you think
"AVowaut to know what you think
of it," was the answer.
"The fact is," said tho doniinio,
"I'm like a gill whoim. young man is
calling on her and has winked at her
once or twice, and sho is not exactly in
position to say 'no.' "
"No, dominie," said a trustee, "you
arc in tho position of a married woman
at whom some strange man on tho
street has winked."
Tho dominie laughed heartily, but
the trustees wcie very grave.
"AVhat have you got to say alxiut the
call 1" tho dominie- asked.
"I think tho Lord calls a man to the
place whero ho can get tho highest
salary," said one of the delegation.
Tho dominie stuck to the Tabernacle,
however. Sometime nfterward, it is
said, ho got his back up because tho
trustees wanted a ceri'Aiio ofilcer to re

"Besides being adapted to running

of tho leading spirits In the now ven

our intention to give monthly, and, pos
sibly, bi-monthly exhibitions of speed
by some of the best trotting horses in
the United States. Ono advantage that
wc will havo Is tho fact that wo own
our track and will not havo to pay a
big rent, ns tlio National Jockey Club
did at Ivy City. This will enable us
to offoi bicccr purses tor tho horses to

agreeable drive out to the track nearly
every afternoon. Sunday morning is,
however, the time most con cnlcnt for
a drive to Bcnnings, and a number of

for the well-known and popular track.

Lieutenant Colonel Clobridge of the
Fourteenth Ucgimcnt was in a genial
mcod, says tho Brooklyn Citizen, when
he was at tho aimory on the last head
quarter night. Ho said that ho had
been suffering from the "prevailing cus
sedncss," and that his physician hid
ordered him Io remain in tho house.
He did not look llko a sick man, how
ever, and for half nn hour entertained
n group of otllccrs and newspaper men
with anecdote and repaitco in away
which many well men might envy.
Something wTiich wns said suggested
James Tanner to him.
"I heaid Tanner tell a story on him
self," said he, which would have been

Auiant, N. Y., Jan. 28. Thcro was
nn exciting tlmo at tho Albany County
Bank In this city yesterday afternoon.
Cashlor John Tcmplcton died a short
tlmo ago and yesterday the directors
met to elect his successor. It was ex
pected that David 8. JIann, then toller,
who has been In tho bank for nearly
twenty years, would bo promoted. But
thcro was a hitch In tho programme,
and, during tho stormy session of tho
board, ono of tho directors Is credited
Avlth saying that they did not want any
"Sheeny" as tho head of their bank.
AVhcu Mr. Jtann heard this ho re
signed at once, and two of the direc
tors, one of whom was Dudley Forlln,
also tendered their resignations, saying
thev could not afford to bo connected
with an institution where such Ideas
prevailed. The dlrcctois thin selected
Wm. N. Banders, a well-known busi
ness man, as cashier.
No sooner was their action known on
tho strcot and tho alleged insult to tlio
raco noised abroad, than the Jewish cus
tomers of tho bank began to withdraw
their deposits. Within an hour a crowd
of angry men, representing somo of tlio
largest houses In tho city add the bank's
best customers, filled the space In front
of the desk demanding that their ac
counts be closed nt once. One man re
ceived a certified check for nearly
J200.000, and it is said that noarly half
a million was withdrawn
Tlio proceedings will probably bo
continued to-day, but tho bank's ofllccrs
say they can stand it and arc satisfied
with their choice. The matter is" tho
leading subject of conversation In town.

Mn.WAUKr.n, AVis., Jan. 28. The
AVoman's Christian Tenipcranco Union

from the directors of tho Young Mon's

notice says that, having allied them
sqlves with tlio Prohibition party, the
women must bo treated llko any other
political organization, and aro" there
ioio debarred fiom occupying quartcis
iri the Young Men's Christian Associa

of tho action taken at the Chicago con
vention recently, which the local union
Indorsed. Tho Young Men's Christian
Association peoplo arc exceedingly
loath to talk about the matter. Secre
tary AVillctts said last evening ho would
let tho directors explain If they saw tit.
Ifc is hinted in outside circles that one
of tho reasons for tho action on the part
of tho directors was that several liberal
subscribers to the Young Men's Chris
tiou Association funds complained
about tho ladles being in the building,
saying they weio really the Piohlbitlon

to ihem by AV. V. Krafts of Now York
City and secretary of the Aincilnm
Sabbath Union, IlcpicsentatlvcIJrcck
inrldgo of Kentucky the 0th instant in
troduced a bill in the IIouso to prevent
persons from being forced to lnbor on
Sunday, aud this seems to havo slirrcd
up Iho Sunday law men all over the
country. At any Tate, communications
have been pouring fiom all parts of the
United States urging tint the1 utmost
enro be cxcrcled In examining tho pro
visions of tho Iliccklnridga bill, tho al
legation being made that there Is an
other bill concealed behind tho meas
ure, which is ftlsd Intended to pavo the
way for Senator Illalr's Sunday llcst
Mil. lIM-XKEWllIMIi: KM'I.tlM.
"Bo far as I am concerned," said Mr.
Drccklnrldgo to n representative of The
Cm-Tic, "the bill which I Introduced
avos drafted by myself and has no con
nection whatever with any other mens
tire pending cither in the House or Sen
ate of the United States. My idea is to
piovide a gcncial lav f ir tho District of
Columbia, in which. I am Informed, no
Sunday law osists, und I do not pro
pose to dictate to any person how to
worship. After a careful investigation
of the subject I introduced in tho IIouso
the following bill:
That It shall bo unlawful foi any person
or corporation or employe of any person or
corporation In tho District of Columbia to
perform any eccular labor or business or
to cause tho same to be performed by any
person lu their empIOmcnt on Sunday, ox
rent works of necessity or mcrcv. nor shall
It bo lawful for any person or corporation
to receive pay for labor or services per
formed or rendered In violation of this act.
Any person or corporation, or cinplovo
of any person orcorporntlon In tho Dietrfct
of Columbia, who shall violate tho provis
ions of this act, shall, upon conviction
thereof, bo punished by a lino of not moro
than $100 for such offense: l'roildcd, hmo
eicr. That thu provisions of this act shall
not be construed to apply to any person or
persons who conscientiously believe in and
observe any other day of tho week than
Sunday as a day ot rest.
This bill was promptly referred to
the District of Columbia Committee,
nnd subsequently it was transfer! cd to
u sub committee, of which Mr. Delano
of New York Is chairman, tor investi
gation and leport. Nothing has been
done thus far by the committee, nnd
until a regular meeting day is arranged
it is doubtful if thero will bean attempt
rando at a report on this subject.
Meanwhile Mr. Krafts has not been
idle, and he has submitted n communi
cation to the committee, asking that
Thursday, the DOtli instant, bo set nparl
for a hcaiing of the question, and that
the friends and opponents of tho
bill bo allowed nn hour on each
side to tlcbato its provisions.
AVith a view to giving tin impetus
to the subject a mass-meeting Ins been
called for this evening at tho Now
