Kansas City. Aug. 21. Two hundred
employes of the parking house plants
owned by Armour & Co., Swift & Co. and
Swartzchild & Sulzberger have struck
against a 10 per cent reduction in wages,
and a number more will be udded to their
ranks in a dav or two. The reduction was
announced to the men hist week, and
affects all of the plauts operated in the
different cities by the companies named.
It is possible that the strike may reach
serious proportions in the Swift and the
Swartzchild & Sulzberger plants, as it ap
nlies lo nil the men employed by thone
lIitnt.. In the Armour plant tho reduc
tion sipplies only to the men in the me
chanical department, who are best able to
enduie a i eduction of wanes, as they re
ceive better wairos than the other men.
Foity-five machinists and plumbers have
btiuck in thut plant, aud tlie blacksmiths
and boilermakers will probably strike in a
day or two. Tne strike in the other plants
is of a more serious character. All of the
1(53 butchers in the Swift plant have
struck, and there are only bixty-live butch
ers at woik in the packing house of
bwartzsiiild & Sulzberger. They will
cease work when the cattle for export are
butchered. When it is considered that the
oik of the packing houses depends upon
the butchers, it will be readily seen that
the strike is of a serious character.
THE FRANCO-ITALIAN RIOTS.
ROME, Aug. Ml. The troubles growing
out of tho fighting between French and
Italian workingmen employed at the salt
works at Aigue.s-IUortes, France threaten
to involve grave international complica
tions. It is not in Rome alone that the
popular indignation at, what the Italians
consider agioss breach of international
comity is lindiug vent in demonstrations
that are evidently intended to coerce the
government into demanding an apology
Itom France for the attack upou the
Italians and the payment of an indemnity
to compensate the f:.oiilies of tbov
Italians who were Killed. Riots directed
against Frenchmen have occuued in many
of tho provincial towns, aud the situation
is considered grave.
The most serious outbreak of popular
feeling against ".he Fieuch occurred in this
city late last night, when a hooting mob
attempted to burn the French embassy.
Some of the lioters carried cans of petio
leum, aud dii; not hesitate to openly decline
that it was their iutention to destioj' the
embassy. The rioteis attempted to carry
out their tin cats to burn the embassy, not
withstanding the piesence of troops to
protect it. They were oidered to desist
and disperse, but refused to do so, where
upon the soldiers charged upon them. Tlie
mob stood its grouud for some time and
fought stubbornly, anil it was not until
several charges upon them were made that
they began to retreat, lighting all of the
tune. Foity-five of tho lioteis weie ar
rested. .Many of the mob who were at the
forefront were uounded by the sibers th.it
the soldiers used. The rioting in the pto
viucial tows was only quelled by the use
of Hoops, the police beim: utterly power
loss to handle tho mob. Further develop
ments aie anxiously awaited.
Sylvan Bi:ach, X. Y., Aug. 21. About
5,000 people listened to populist orators
iciterday. Rev. Dr. MeGlynn spoke twice,
aud on both occasions pleased his audiences.
In the afternoon he spoke on "The Politics
of tho Loid's Prayer." He called it either
a stump speech with religion injected into
it, or a sermon full of politics. The address
on the subject ha- bi ought out a peculiar
state of affairs. -Mrs. .Mary L Lease is a
fnll-lledieiriieaf o.;hist, as nre'Judge Kerr
and Mis. Muriou Todd, the other puucipal
speakers. Ii seems that Mm. Lease had an
oiiureso prepared on the same subject, aud

that two minds have beeu influenced by

THE HOME RULE BILL.
LONDON", Aug. Ml. Mr. Gladstone today
moved the adoption of the resolution,
notice of which was given on Friday last,
to apply closure to the eport stage of the
home rule bill on Friday next.
Joseph Chamberlain, the Unionist
leader, submitted an amendmentdeclaring
the proposal calculated to degrade the

the British majority of its constitutional

spoke to the motion at creat length.
Sir William Vernon Haicourt, chancel

financial discussion was dwarfed today in
the greater interest that every one felt iu

Mr. Hooker of Mississippi opposed the

WASHIXGTOK, Aug. Ml. When asked for
a statement as to the reason -which im
pelled the speaker to depose him from the
chairmanship of the ways and means
committee. Mr. Springer said:
"To say that I am surprised at my de
position from the chairmanship of tho
ways and means committee and the ap
pointment as .chairman of the committto
on banking and currency is only a feeble
expression of the truth. I had no intima
tion of the speaker's intentions. I go from
work to which I have given the best study
of my life to a committee to the business of
which I have giren but little attention
heretofore. I know nothing of the motives
of the speaker or of the object that he had
m view. He has assured me that he de
sired to do that which he thought was
best fcr the country aud the Democratic
party. I hope that he is not mistaken,
nutopinious may inner.
Chairman Bland, when asked tonight
for an opinion as to how his committee
standi, very characteristically replied: "I
don't know. You cau't tell how a fellow
stands nowaday..Ac(.oiding to the way they
used to stand, we would haven majority
of one for free coinage; but how they stand
now God only knows."
The committee on banking and currency
is said to be opposed to free coinage.

appropriations committee is said to mean

Washington, Aug. Ml. An impression
is growing about the capitol that the
present extraordinary session of congress
may come to an end about the middle of
September. This appears to be based upon
confidence in the possibility of a com
promise being entered iuto within that
period upon the financial question. Nearly
all the importaut legislation accomplished
in recent years has been the result of com
mittee conferences. Those persons who
hold to the opinion that an adjournment
is possible next month say that Mr. Vest's
proposition providing for the free coinage
of silver at a ratio of 20 tol will be passed
by the senate, and that ultimately will
become unrt of the bill for unconditional
repeal which, it is expected, will be passed
by tha house. The likelihood of a veto by
President Cleveland of such a measure has
been discounted by the believers in an
early adjournment. They argue that it
would bo impossible to rally a two-thirds
vote in either bouse to pass the bill over
the veto, and that nothing could bo ac
complished, so far as the financial situa
tion is concerned, by congress remaining
in session after such a, veto was received.
Tho more experienced watchersor political
eveuts place no confidence in these early

being C. II. Mansur of Missouri as second
comptroller of the treasury, aud Thomas
J. Low as secretary of Oklahoma.
Orders have been issued to all sub-treas-treasuries
to pay gold over the counters

reduced, being slightly below $100,000,000.
The marine hospital bureau has received

Alleged to be the Cause.
The Whereabouts of tha Coin Recently Ar

New York, Aug. Ml. The tendency of af
fairs at the Stock exclmuge totUywas in
the direction of improvement. Specula
tion steadily gained strength nuder.the in
fluence of advices from Washiugtou favor
ing the repsal of the Sherman silver law
and the continued arrivals of gold from
Europe. Several of the leadiug operators
are credited with espousing the bull side,
and their purchases occasioned a deal of
timidity among the sports, who when
they attempted to buy found offerings
comparatively small. Tho result was re
flected iu a geueral advance, amounting
to from K to 1 Per cout. The final quoU
tions showed a receding ot i&& per cent
from the highest figures, but speculation
left off strong in tone.
NEW York, Aug. ML The Post snya:
"There were large receipts of gold from
Europe today, uud, despite the sharp ad
vance in sterling exchange, more was pur
chased at the Bank of Englaud. Tho im
pression is general iu London that the
bank will advance tho discount rate to 4
or 5 per cent. Whether such n move
would or would not serve to check the
American dematid tho local premium
makes quite uncertain. The movement of
our owu interior markets is slowly show
ing the influence ot this imported gold,
thonch the traciug of its actual present
resting place has become a matter of mere
gues-swork. Everybody kuows at least
that it has nor. gone abroad. The picking
up of gold in London began with the close
of June. Since then foreign steamers have
delivered at New York no less than $33,
000,000 of the precious metal. It has not
gone to the United States treasury nor to
the New York banks. There is only one
explanation of tiiu phenomenon. The
newly imported gold has gone wherever it
was moat imperatively needed, aud it whs
yeeded somewhere much more imper
atively than in the New York iiatraual
hanks. Moreover there is probably a
larger quantity of it now in hand-to-hand
circulation in the eastern cities than at
any time during the present generation."
NEWYor.K. Aug. ML Henry Clews, In
his weekly review of affairs iu Wall street,
"Business nt the Stock exchnugo has
showu little change during tho past week,
iu either volume or prices. There has
been, however, a distinct improvement in
tone. The feeling has become more settled,
and adverse occurrences have iittlo effect
upon holders of securities. Tho putting of
the Northern Pacific under a receivership,
which might naturally have been expected
tn jiftVet the market very adversely, had
but a trifling effect upou prices. The
market, in short, seems to have reached
bardpan. aud stocks aro so well held that
neither accidents nor bear attacks produce
any important impression on values. In
this respect, the market may lw said to be
iu a relatively strong position; and also iu
tho further seme that prices for railroad
shares range far below what would bo
warranted by tha finances of the com
panies. It is true that the current earn
ings show a considerable decline, owing to
the universal depression of business; but
the fall In price-, has gone immeasurably
beyond what, that loss of bulne3 woild
call for, whilst working expmses are being
severely cut down by all the road. At
current prices, tliereiore, stocks remain an
unusually tempting investment purchase,
aud people of private means continue to
take them off the market, thereby
strengthening tho position of holders at
'LTiider tbee circumstances, the Stock
exchange interest may be considered as
having passed the worst p!iae ot tb3
extraordinarily protracted panic, and is
waiting composedly for the return of con
fidence iu other interests, most of which
are still enduring acuis prostration.
'The general situation may be B.fd to be
ou the mend, but the recovery is o slight
as to be scarc-ly observable from day to
day. Tnere is certainly les-s apprehension
than exiit'-d a week or two ago. Tho
number of bank failures and of mercantile
suspensions is declining, and about as
many banks are resuming operation ara
closing their door?, 'i here cm not beiwid
to bs any important general distrust ns to
the solvency of mercantile firm, aud utich
fears as exist in that quarter Is ma'uly
against the possibility or sonnd hounds be
coming embarrased through the con
tinued extraordinary hcarcuyof money.
The trouble among tho D.iuks jdw to 1
leas acute than it was a wefk ago. Ther
has perhaps been aomnrial abaKrnent iu
the applications for currency from the in
terior tMtik: but, as those demands now
meet with but a restricted re-ponw, the

ft rule, the representatives of the people
seem to have uo more serious idea than
that they aro assembled to debate over
again nn already over-argued and jostled
question, aud to make a display ot their
oratorical prowess. In neither house does
it seem to be realized that congre-s is
summoned to execute promptly a specific
and expressly dp lined Iieht from four
tilths of the people of the Cnticd State.
Few members H-em to understand that tho
country is brought to tho present seriously
depressed starts by its silver polrcy and
that their sole hu-incs-, n unmistakably
prescribed by n vas.t majority of tho na
tion, is tn prohibit nt once the increase of
silver uiouey nndc the so-called Sher
maii law. The disposition showu during
the past two weeks to consider alterna
tives and compromises' iu placo of this
simple repeal remedj und the trifling
with tho public demand especially iu tho
senate, are producing a dicounoment
thut will rapidly resolve itself into a pro
found national exasperation; and is
now remains to bi een how far tho
senate will really dare- to carry
its defiance of the public will. Tnat com
mand now need to br expesed with a
force of personal representation from tint
leadiug centers of the country that will
bring reckless senators to their senses;
and the signs are withering that, in a few
days, the popular demand will bs uttered
with a majesty that will compel the re
spect of those who now dare to .sat their
owu theories and petty sectional interests
in hostility to the highest uatlonal Wel
fare. Tne time for debate ntid soeech
making display Is past. The conflagra
tion flame, all around us, and we want uo
fiddling Neroes to insult the public Pilfer
ing. The hour has como when the su
preme sovereignty of r he American pcoplu
must be absolutely obeyed; and if thero
should prove to bo a majority of the
higher house who dare to dutv it to tho
last, it will be but for a moment that such
a traitorous exercise of legislative func
tions will be allowed to prevail. It it Is
possible that the country cinnot UeDeud
upou the seiiHte iu its hour of supremest
peril, let that body dare to say so by de
nying the demand now lusforo them; but
salvation from a debased currency could
be but momentarily deferred by uch a
presumptuous folly. As matters now
look, the silver session is likely to become
an intensely exciting one at an early day;
and we are far from expecting that, whan
the public resolution becomes properly
understood, the senate wt'.l persist lu its
present defiant attitude."
