VOL. XLVINO. 77.
Some progress was made yesterday
ly Mr. Powuerly and Mr. Jay Gould
toward a final settlement of the strike
on the Gould Southwestern system of
ra'lroadg, which, there is good reason
Jto believe, will be accomplished to
Mk. Hoiik has at last consented to
arbitrate, and (he Executive Commit
tee of the Knights of Labor will leave
Kew York to day f r St. Louis to enter
upon the work of adjusting all diffi-
eultuB and closing a very troublesome
and costly strike.
I r :n now more apparent than ever
thai tho Knights of Labor are better
able to manage and reconcile the
diHVroncea that arise between capital
and labor than any other of the work
ingiuen'a organizations, and that here
after all such differences, are to be left
to its Executive Board for settlement.

respect and confidence of all classes of

nome of ihe s rikers on the Gould
system cannot be (tob severely con
demned, eapec'ally when life is en
elangercd .by it. The people of the
United States, or a very large major
ity of. them, sympathize with the
workingmon in their desire to
improve their condition by a de
crease in the hours of labor and an
increase of wages, but that sympathy
cannot long survive the derailing of
passenger trains, as in Kansas yester
day. That sort of thing is to be
lapsed with assassination and cow
From the Springfield (Mass.) Rrpub
Acan we learn that next summer's
session of the Concord School of Phil
osophy will begin July 14th, and will
include two courses of lectures -on
Dante and on Plato about twelve in
each. Several persons lecture in both
courses, and Dr. Harris and Prof. Da
vidson will each give three lectures in
all. The list as it stands is one that
will command attention, both from
the subjects and the names of the
speakers. Mr. Alcott's name is still
attached to the circular of the school
w dean, and he expects to return from
Ronton to Concord in May and te
present at the sessions in July.
Dr Stbfhbn Smith of New York is
advocating the planting of trees in the
streets of that city as a sanitary meas
ure and means of lowering the tem
perature in summer. He says that
"an acre of grass gave the air 6401
qwu-far of" moisture in - twrr4y-fj
hours, but trees were even better nod
em. The old Washington elm at
Cambridge, although not ve ry large,
exposes to the air a surface in leaves
equal to five acres of vegetation. Trees
keep an even temperature of about
55, while the temperature of an ex
posed pavement on Fifth avenue on a
hot day had been found as high as
180. When this test was made a
thermometer in the shade of a tree
near by recorded only 70."
An earnest and timely effort is be
ing made in Massachusetts to increase
the legal age of consent for young
girls to eighteen, or, at least, sixteen,
' years. The Baptist Ministers's Asso
ciation has joined the following bodies
in petitioning the Legislature to that
eflect: The Massachusetts Woman's
Temperance Union, the teachers of
the Bowdoin School of Boston, the
National Woman Suffrage Association
of Massachusetts, the New England
Moral Reform Society, the Moral Edu
cational Association of Massachusetts.
The women f this State should follow
this example and take steps to secure
the passage of an act next January
raising the age of consent for young
girls to at least sixteen we should
say eighteen, .
Gen. Akiktbono, principal - of the
HamptoB Hernial Institute, who has
done so much for the education of In
dians aad negroes, has been in New
York with a view to secure addition al
aid for the support of his charges.
Though' assisted by the State as an
agricultural college and by the t ac
tional government, which pays at the
rate of $167 each for 120 Indians,
this scheol relies for the salaries of its
seventy teachers and employes and
for general expenses on outside help.
About 1(6,000 is required annually,
nearly one half being raised by schol
arship endowments of $70 each. The
Etmtnf Poet, which has howled itself
hoarse in opposition to the Blair bill,
commended Gen. Armstrong's scheme
to the pnblic, and no doubt he has or
will secure the needed sum.

Albany letter to the New York
Tribune: Danie1 Manning's serious
illness naturally has recalled him viv
idly to the minds of the people in this
city, where he lived so long. When
he departed for Washington a year ,
ago there were few' men in Albany
who were so universally known; pol
itics and journalism I ad brought him
in contact with thousands. lie was a
methodical man. Every week-day
one could meet him at a certain mo
ment on the State street hill walking
down to his dingy little office in the
Argus building, nd upon Sunday in
Lancaster street on his way to St.
Paul's Protestant Episcopal Church.
The office in the Argus building
would instantly arouse a suspicion
that it was inhabited by some one pro
foundly interested in politics; for,
upon the walls there hung the por
traits of demigods of the Democratic
party Samuel J. Tilden, Winfield
Scott Hancock, John T. Hoffman, Ed
win Croswell, William Cassidy and
Peter Cagger. Mr. Manning, although
an excellent business man, was deeply
interested in polUics. His little room
had witnessed many a secret confer
ence of the chiefs of the Democratic
t arty, llere'it was that the Cleveland
"boom" was born. Edgar K. Apgarone
day called upon Daniel S. Lamont,
then managing editor of the Argm,
and found him scissoring press ex
tracts. "Dan," said he, "whom do
you think we had better run for Gov
ernor this fall?" Mr. Lamont laid
down his scissors and said carelessly:
"Well, I am beginning to think we
had better take up this Buffalo man,
Cleveland." Mr. Apgar knew that
Lamont never talked thus without
some inspiration. He went below
Btairs to find Mr. Vanning and sound
him on the same subject. Mr Apgar,
she had expected, found Mr. Man
ning also leaning toward Mr. Cleve
land. Another prominent Democratic
politician strolled in, and, joining in
the conversation, said : "I hear that
Cleveland is on friendly terms
with Tamn any Hall. Would
it be safe, therefore, to
nominate him?" Vr. Manning was
not perturbed. He replied: "Well, I
don t know anything about Cleve
land never met him, nor do I know
how he stands with Tammany ; but I
do know this that, if elected Gov
ernor, in less than six months after
I is inauguration he will quarrel with
John Kelly. He can't help doing so.
I guess we can safely take him if we
want him." W r. Manning's prediction
was fulfilled ; in less than six months
Gov. Cleveland did quarrel with M .
Kelly ; the Tammany Senators "hung
up" Cleveland's nominations, and
there was a breach between Cleveland
and the Tammany organ ration which
nearly cost him his election as Presi
dent. Mr. Manning's greatest political tri
umph was the nomination of Cleve
land for President. It was not till
late in the spring of 184 that tor.
Cleveland's consent to be ome a can
didate for the nomination was ob
tained. In the meanwhile Roswell P.
Flower, the Tammany Hall organiza
tion and other opponents of Mr.
Cleveland, had nearly gained the con
trol of tho Democratic State Conven
tion in New York. It was foreseen by
Cleveland's rivals ouuide of New
York that, if he lost the delega
tion from his own State, or if
there was serious opposition made
in the convention to his nom
ination for President, their own
chances of being nominated would be
increased. They fomented discord.
Mr. Manning b a great effort sup
pressed all outward manifest ions of
opposition to C'eveland In the con
vention,; boldly le' New. York

majority of the New York delegates,

unit rule, and, as all know, nomi
nated Cleveland for President
There was one triumph at the Na-
tonal Democratic Convention more
pleasant to Mr. Manning even than
the nominationjof Mr. Cleveland. He
sai I to the writer the day after the
convention adjourned: ,fThere are
some compensations for the hard work
even of such a convention as this; and
people little think what they ask when
they request a business man to leave
his home and office and enintge in such
a terrific strugcle as we have had for a
week past. What pleased me is
this that Indiana delegation
played fast and loose with us
all through the convention. At heart
they were for McDonald, but they
nromised strain and aeain thev would
aid us. Well, they hung off till we
didn t need their help and we nomi
nated Cleveland without them. Then
we turned about, stampeded the con
vention for Ilendric s for Vice-Presi
dent and thrust him down' their
throats. That was very pleasant; I
hope the Indiana delegation is satis
fied." WiSHIXHIOJf KOTES.

Washington, March 3i The Sen
ate in secret session to-day discussed
the betrayal of executive acts. A copy
of the New York Sun of this morning,
c ntaimngthe text of the report of the
Finance Committee in the case of Col
lector Spears of Vermont from which
tbe injunction of secrecy was to be
removed, was laid before tho body and
a proposition was made that the Com
mittee on Privileges and Elections
should make an investigation of the
case. Members of that committee ex
pressed their disinclination to enter
upon the thankless task and suggested
that a special committee ta: e it up.
Senator Logan -old the old story of
two newspaper men, the foundations of
whose fortunes were laid severtM years
ago, when they were arrested ana
locked up by order of the Senate. The
Senate, he said, rather ignobly backed
down in that instance, and he was op
posed to any attempt to 'epeat the ex

should de carried through vigorously.

operations. "It may be," he says,
"that the illness of Secretary Man

nally accomplish his desire, and the
State will thereby be relieved from its
embarrassing position. The Sent t r
remarked that, "as Nevada produces
more silver than any other State, it is

coined in the State. The business of ,
Nevada will brighten immediately
upon the opening of the mint, and
