Bi.aixe has begun i his-canvass for
the Republican nomination in 1888 by
publishing in tho New York Irish
World a chapter froniilhe second vol
: uine of his Twenty Years in Gmgrws on
British misrule in Ireland. .'Mr; Ford,
the editor of the Iruh World, who
voted for Blaine ia 1884, accompanies
this chapter with an editorial . -eloquently
advocating the "Plumed
Knight from Maine." Betas the Nw
York Evening Pout suggests Logan has
yet to sjeak. And "think ol the chance
which he has to cut in with an
Irish chapter in his 'History' right on
the eve of the campaign ! Logan will,
of course, have suoli a chapter. -N.o
'History' would be oiplote without
it. He is a more impassioned writer
than Blaine and lie lias also the great
advantage of having. genuine Irish
blood in his veins. AVe think it will
be seen when his Irish 'bait' is dis
played that Blaine has begun his fish
ing at least two years too soon."
The only preventive-of strikes is' to
r be found in tho co-operative plan pro
posed by Mr. Weeden of Rhode
Island, by which the capital,- the body
of laborers and the managers aro to be
considered as sharing equally .in. tho
profits. Capital is to be paid 4 J per
cent, semi-annually.; the .workman
"three-quarters of the current rate of
wages weekly, and Che managers what
is snpposed to be three-fourths of
what such men would be -paid else
where. At the end of "lite, year each
pariy is to be credited -with - one-third
of the profits remaining ifter . these
have been made. Bat no. one, is to be
paid, until the expiration .of the agree
ment, which runs fire years. ;lf any
operative leaves of has own .accord,
his share of profits ia to tie forfeited to
an insurance fund for the ibenefit of
theskk and needy. It is .believed
that the prosiect of a lividend. by this
plan wculd be a stimulus to. the work-
jngtonand would act aw an iuduce
.ruent far the small economies. and for
the infection of work in detail. The
New England Granite Company is
now testing ihis plan and the result is
looked for with great interest by man

ew Om.iANS, March 8. The last
week of the Carnival opened niot aus
piciously. The rainy weather of last
wee : crowded all the tun ami merri
ment into this, and we liave three suc
cessive days of pageant; yesterday the
Fire Department turned out; to-day
Rex made his entrance into his capital
city; to-morrow Mard' Oras will wind
up the Carnival, Kex holding forth in
the morning and Proteus at night. Al
though it was cloudy the greater
portion of the morning, the weather
continued favorable all to-day and
contrfbuted to the success of the first
day of the carnival and the arrival of
Rex, There was a short rain after
tho ceremonies, but it did not in tho
least interfere with the festivities.
There are scarcely as many people
in town this year as'last, probably be
cause tho Exposition is not as attract
ive as then ; but there is, all the same,
no lack of strangers, and the totels
and boarding-houses are filled to their
utmost capacity. There is a good, at
tendance from the East, peoplo from
New York and Boston spending the
winter in Florida, anil wlxruri over to
the city for the holidays; also from
the West, St. Ixmis and Cincinnati
sending down, as usual, ;i larno num
ber of excursion parties by steamer,
tho latter hitching up nt the wharf
here and becoming floating hotels for
the. time being; but the gj.-at majority
of tho visitors - and this year more
than any previous one are from the
South. Texas and Arkansas hnve con
tributed more liberally of their people
than ever before. The T xans came
pouring into this city as Ion ago as two
weeks; Arkansas has contributed sev
eral large excursion parties, and nearly
everybody in Mississippi who can
leave home is here. All the hotels
and New Orleans has greatly improved
and added to its hotels in consequence
of the Exposition are full ; so is every
steamboat at the wharf, and there are
a hundred or so sleeping cars sido
tracked that are furnishing accommo
dation to parties from distant portions
of the country who do not care to be
put to the trouble of searching for
quarters in the city.
Canal and St. Charles streets have
been the centers of attraction to-dav.
Everybody who can likes to sep tlie
procession fr m these thoroughfares
which, on an occasion of this kind,
are so impressive and striking, their
broad galleries crowded with people
and hunc with ltaia iukJ buntincr
showing the carnival colors of purple,
green and gold, (.'anal street never
looked more brilliant or attr ctive
than this morning. From lianqmrt to
the river crowds filled the street and
sidewalks, and gaminseven clambered
up the trees in the center of the bou
levard. The crowd was densest at the
foot of the street, where the royal flo
tilla lay, whence the King and his
party were to leave for the Exposition
grounds, while another immense
throng congregated at the corner of
St: Charles and St. Joseph streets, by
which route Rex was to arrive from
his supposed tour around the world.
At 1 0 o'clock the royal train steamed
into the depot amid shouts and huzzas
that could not have been more or
dial and enthusiastic if the arrival
had been that of the President him
self instead of a make-believe mon
arch. The train, even the engine,
was brilliantly decorated with ribbons
and flowers. Ranged along St. Charles
street, to receive Ins majesty were the
military, the homo and visiting com
panies: Tho Continental Guard.
Washington Artillery. Louisiana Field
Artillery and others. It is a standing
tradition that Kex must never appear
twice in me same character. Two
years ago he entered New Orleans ar
rayed as Solomon "in all his glory;"
last year he was, in honor of the Ex
position, "King of the Arts and
Sciences;" to-day he comes as Charles
V. of Spain and Germany. The pa
geantry of the procession that sur
rounded and escorted him was pictur
esque, opulent in color and set off by
the uniform of the militia. The attire
of the majority was magnificent. A
tunic of satin, heavily embroidered in
gold and bound at the waist by a vel
vet belt studded with precious stones,
a mantle of ermine, golden greaves
and gauntlets, his sword's belt of
jewels and filigree. Behind the King
rode the members and dukes of the
realm in the dress and fashions f
Charles V's time. The royal order of
ru. nex nung on their breast. A num
. her of vans followed, containing mem
bers of the King's comic court and
opera company broad and ludicrous
The favorite koroes and heroines of
the opera filled several of these vans.
There was La Favorite, a verv do
cayed, forlorn and hollow-cheeked
beauty ; Figaro, the barber of Seville,
with a colossal razor and brush; tho
Trovatore, very pigeon-toed and with
attenuated legs, playing upon a banjo;
La Fille do Regiment, a buxom,
course vivandiere, scarcely able to drag
behind her the immense saber strapped
to heride; La Dame Blanche, a "cul
lud lad-v." all arraved in white- Don
Juan, a gallant, very much after tho
Oscar Wilde order;, La Muette, the
l'ortici, .an ancient virago, whose
mouth is closed by .a .padlock ; Ia
Grande Duchesoe. makku? a verv
plentiful display of striped stockings;
the Little JDuke, the Flyiac Dutch
man and other equally wsetl known
operatic characters. Another wan con
tained various members of the King's
household, marshalled by, the .master
of ceremofifes, very impreasire in his
immense bluen-ocked hat and mili
tary breeches, and waving an enor
mous gold wand. The ourt astron
omer held his telescope in luind, evi
dently awakened from his slumbers
to study the stars, as he still wore his
retiring robes. The Japanese Court
poet was in green tights end very low
cut shirt, a lyre in his hand. The
Master of the Buckhounds' boots and
spurs were most aggressive and terri
fying, and in remar able contrast with
the two infinitesimal puppies he led.the
contrast bringing forth only laughter.
The Royal Academy occupied still an
other van, with an amateur artist, very
ranch ol dude; landscape artist,'
wrapt in profound admiration of
belt, and a portrait painter w ho had
succeeded admirably in depicting
young lauy on his canvas as a goose.
following these came the usual mis
cellaneous collection of maskers, the
rag-tag and lol-tail of all processions.
. Amid the .cheers of the multitude
the procession filed down St. Charles
street, a down hands playing lively
airs, ami particularly the royal an
them, "If Ever I Cease to Love." In
front of the City Hall and opposite
Lafavette Square, a stand of L'omlly
proiH)rtions had ten raised, covered
with the roval colors of purple, green
and gold. From this the Mayor and
Common Council greeted the passing
cavaicaile. it Halted here. The King
entered tlie hall, where, amid cham
pagne and speeches, the golden keys
of the citv were tendered him on a
cushion of richly bordered purple
velvet, and with them Rex became
the sole ruler of New Orleans for two
days at least, and master of fun and
merriment. Amid much clapping of
hands and waving of welcome the
cavalcade proceeded on its route.
passed through Canal and down among
tlie houses ol the trench quarter,
through never ending crowds, and
finally out toward the river.
The scene presented on the levee at
ttie neaa oj . unul street was grand.
An immense crowd of people filled
the entire area. Drawn up in line at
tho wharf were the twenty steamers
that constituted tho royal flotilla, fly
ini; flaus and pennants' of all colors.
and sending from their tall black
chimneys light puffs of smoke. Their
decks and cabin roofs wero densely
crowded with people. Surveying the
scene from the hurricane deck ol the
King's vessel, up and down the stream
as far as vision could reach were to be
seen ships, all decorated, their yards
and masts covered with flags. Land
ward, a multitude of people lilted tho
streets as far as tho eye could reach.
Presently, as the royal procession
came into view, its bright colors
clearly discernible amid the dark
masses of the multitude, tho boomim.'
oi a ualtery was heard, and the roval
salute of 100 guns greeted Rex. Ami
this salvo the royal cortege arrive
the military were drawn up in line
while the King and his retinue, the
peers and maskers dismounted an
embarked in tho steamer. Again tho
cannon sounded lorth a salute, an
every steam whistle and everv boll
upon tho river front sounded, making
sucn a screeching that fairly dcalened
The spectacle afforded as the fleet
got into line in the center of the river
was one of the most beautiful and im
posing ever presented on any water of

both sides of the river wero 11 n

dozen bands played at once and filled
the very air with music. All along
the route the royal cortege was
greeted with applause and salutes.
When the fleet finally reached the
Exposition grounds tho entire nai-tv.
the king ami his staff, the thousands
oi passengers disembarked and
marched from the river to the Music

had been erected of the royal colors.
The King was greeted by the Board of
iuanagement ot the Exposition, and
tendered the lreedom ol the city. A
number of steeches followed, and
other ceremonies wero gone through
with, after which Kex remained seated
in state for several hours, receiving all
those who desired to do him homage.
The entire escort party then suddenly
and mysteriously disappeared to re
fresh and recruit themselves for the
parades of to-morrow.
To-night the eitv is brill innflv 1 1 i -i

entertainments of all kinds. But to

fracas occurred yesterday at the Mor
ris mi ues that . eclipses any of the
former exploits of tlie lawless negro
miners ot the iron ore district center
ing some eight miles south of Bir
mingham. It all grew out of aquarrel
at some place Saturday night in which
a negro from the Woodward mines,
three miles distant (cross Red
.Mountain valley, demanded tho re
funding of 20 cents lost at a game of
"craps, esterday morning he came
to the Morris quarters rgain with
several friends and renewed tho
qunrrel. The result was one of his
backers got shot through the hand.
Going back home ho got together a
large squad, and picking up reinforce
ments at Eureka mines, returned to
the attack, his force numlwriog some
twenty-live men, all armed. Harillv
had they posted themselves liehind
trees preparatory to picking off any of
the Morris negroes who might show
theinselves,when the latter turned out
in larger numbers than theirs and
charged them, and after a lively
though surprisingly bloodless fusihid'e
the Woodward parly had to beat a
lasty retreat. Another of the Wood
ward negroes was shot and several
willy beaten. Nobody was seriously
mrt on tlie other side. Two deonlv
sheriffs went down last night anil
broueht into iail tho man who was
shot through the hand. All the others
had got out of the wav. Work is l.mlK-

pnoruy arier noon to-day a series
of explosions took jilaco in the
Uniondale mine at Dunbar, four miles
irom nere, by which two men were
Kineii and twelve received injuries
which will prove fatal in at least four
four cases. 1 he cause of the explosion
was- tire dump. There were twenty-
in rue men in the pit. J lie lirst exilo-
810H oecu red about 12 ,)0 this after
noon. It was a terrific shock, and was
lolloweu by two others in uuick sin
cession a few minutes later. The first
explosion caused the death of the two
men ami injured three. The rest
ran toward the mouth of the
ut, but before they reached
it tho exnlosions occurred.
The litrhts were blown out. the dust
bunded the men. and tho passage
ways were blocked ujt and cut oil all
escape, is ine of them who had been
working in tho front mine managed to
make their wny out before the mouth
of the pit was choked tin. Tho foreo
of the thock can be imagined, as it
caused the men in Morrell. Calvin A
Wheeler's, the adioinimr mines, to
drop their tools and rush
to the top. The ground rolled and
quaked so that many fell down, and
iree or four in the Morrell mine
were violently thrown against the
walls and seriously iirkired. Every
body rushed toward the Union Dale
mine. t;olumbtis Khay, of the Ma
honing Works, and James Henderson
of the. Calvin mine, headed a rescu
ing pany and went to work with
ucks andhovelsto force an entrance.
n a few moments an onenini? was
made and several rushed forward to
nter tho mine, but were rebelled bv
a .volume of .flamo. It took several
minutes tor tho smoko and lire to
clear away. The

and the moans of the iniured men
were pitiable. They wero lvinif in

terrible. Twelve of them wero found
a dying condition. Two others
wore aeau, maneicd almost Into an

inora, .left for the mine this evening to
inquire into the canst; of the explo

side the mine until the coroner im
panels a jury in the morning, hence it
is impossible to estimate the extent of
the damage to the mine. ,
