Hoar, from workingmen employed in
governmerjt workshops since the
eight-hour law of IBtlH was passed,
praying compensation lor over time,
or reference of their claimB to same
tribunal that may adjudicate the ques
tion whether tbey ought to have such
compensation, fcona'.or Hoar said he
favored the request of the petitioners.
He believed the object of the eight
hour law wai to test the soundness of
the economic law, atlirmed by the
workinjfmen of this country, as well
as by many economic writers, that on
a large scale of manufacturing employ
men', the individual workingmau will
be a larger producer when working
only eight hou.s a day than when
working a lor.ger number. The in
creased vigor, saal and intelligence of
men working under such a system,
Senator Hoar believed, would make

: broken his spirit.
The knklax raiders hurried him
from Virginia to Texas. Tbs Alabama
klan drove him from tbe polls. The
midnight raiders of Louisiana bnng
him to the rafters of his cabin. The
first citiiens of Kemper county shot
him down in tbe presence of bis wife
and children. Mew Orleans, uousnai
ta and Coniah all told a story which
the world read with horror. All this
time the co'ored man has kept on and
plie J plow and hoe. Now what he
wii.U is education. This amendment
would secure it for him, which the
bill, as it stood, would not. If the
amendment failed his (Mr. Hale's)
con me was clear. He would "ttind
or f ili" with the amendment.
Sena'or A Ilium defended his amend
ment. He asked the Southern Srna
tors whether they thought the people
of this country would anient that out
of $58,000,0 0 which the bill would
give the South, f 10,000,000 should go
to the education ol tbe whites while
only $18 000,000 was to go f r tbe edu
I at; on of the colored, notwithstanding
tbe fact that tbe illiteracy of the
Southern whites wai but little more
than that prevailing in the Northern
States. Did they suppose this bill,
without this amendment, wonld en
dure the just criticism of Northern
people with such an equitable app (ca
tion of the money. Senator Allison
had a belief that this vicious proposi
tion for the distribution of money
within the States bad been made to
secure for the bill votes from Senators
from which they could not otherwise
be secured. His amendment could

tion. The President to-day sent a message
to the Henatsonthe Chinese question.
He says tbe condition of the Chinese
in tbe Western States and Territories
is far from being satisfactory. All the
power of the government should be
exerted to maintain the amplest good
fa tu toward China in the treatment
of these men and the inflexible stern
ness of the law in bringing wrong
doers to justice should be insisted hd-
on. Every effort has been made by
the government to prevent violent
outbreaks, and the President ravs he
is prepared to give earnest considera
tion to any further remedial measures,
within treaty limits, which the wisdom
ol Coiigrees may deslte.

7 o'clock Saturday evening Grapeville,
a small et lid town on the pike ahont
four - miles west of this place, was the
scene of one of the boldeat robberies
ever committed in this county. The
victims were John Snyder and his
wife, sged sixty-nine and seventy
years respectively. Abaut 7 o'clock
Mr. Snyder went to the door for some
purpose, and while there saw three
men standing but a few feet distant,
who slated that they had come "to
make that gas lease all right." As
soon as they were inside tbey assault
ed Mr. Snyder, and alter a desperate
struggle overpowered him. He was
then thrown to the floor with such
violence that bis shoulder was dislo
cated. Two of the men tied his hat ds
and feet, and the third one then
jumped at Mrs. Snyder. She was par
ing apples with a large anue ana he
jerked it out ol her hand, and in to
doing cut tbe third finger of her right
hand. The brute then choked her
until she wis unconscious. She
screamed, and they took a shirt which
was lying on the bed and covered her
head. The three then bound her
hands and feet, and one of them stotd
on hor breast and tramped her face.
Her eyes are bloodshot and her face
discolored from the outrages. The
flesh is partly torn from her hands
where the ropes were tied. They
then took a feather bed and covered
her head, and she remained in this
nnconecious condition three hours,
during which they ransacked the
house. Not finding anything of value
they demanded money, and In case of
non-compliance they threatened to
apply the torch. All they received
was a $10 gold piece, a memento, and
a pocket-book containing $1 04. The
robbers then left, and several hours
later the old couple were discovered
and released from their unpleasant
predicament Both are in a critical
