keepers of the interior towns lower
prices can often be seenred, and al

It is related that Kean, the great
tragedian, on a certaia occasion find'
ing it impossible to excite the applause
of a London andionce by one cf bis
mcNt splendid delineations of "Ham
let," suddenly threw himself into a
comical altitude and frantically danced
an Irish jig, nrjatly to the amusement
of all, and to the relief of himself and
the delight of bis nnappreciative au
dience. Rev. Mr. Spurg6oa of Lon
don was recently aelz:d with a similar
freak, and descending from his high
and dignified position as oneoi the
ableit divines of the world, has com
menced dancing jigs in his pulpit. It
ia reported that in a recent sermon he
Ulustiated the descent to hell by
sliding down the bsnlsters of tbe
staJrwsy leading to his palplt
and tbat his audience was grestly
shocked at tbe exploit. To make the
elucidation complete, Mr. Spurgeoa
ought to have prepared a minltture
lake of fire and brimstone and plunged
Into it. Mr. Spargeon is the proprie
tor of a Jrge and corpulent person,
and as the mountain of flash went
sliding down the banister like a
launcbirg ship sliding from land to
witer, be no doubt made the irreli
gious acofl and the judicious grieve.
If ministers nra berea'ter to prance
forward before the people in this
cheap sort of tneiojrama, farce or
tragedy, the pulpit banister will be
come aa Important factor In tbe Sun
day morning service. Mr. Spurgson'a
methods hm been adopted in Amer
ica as the Rev. J. B. Ham Iton
of New York in bis first ser
mon last Sunday morning in his
pretty new Methodist church preached
on the subject, "How to Fill Empty
Churches." Fo'ds of crimson cht i
covered a huge screen, and at iotsr
vals in his discourse he diew aside
the crimson folds and revealed pict
ures illustrating his theme. .Ho pro
poses to adopt this practice in all bis
future sermons. Old Lahloned
churcVgojrs will be horr'fisd at Bach
methods, but the wave of sensational
iin now rolling over our pulpiti teua
to be Under full heaJw-if, and preach
ers are determined to draw, even if
they have to slide down tbe btnniaters
or exhibit panoramas in aside-sbow.
The next step will hi a btais band to
whoop up the crowd.
Happily for Greece she has agreed
lo disarm. The friendly and cordial
intervention of French sympathy ap
pears to bnvebad a pacifying influence
that tbe threats and war vessels of
others failed to acquire. Parley
ings are still going on, but the
departure of tbe wrr vessels of
tbe allied powers Is sufficiently tig
nlticaUve that the Greeks, for the
present at Uait, have abandoned their
war-like attitude. The apparent
friendship of Russia increased the in
fluence Greece possessed, and some
p'a'n talk from Montenegro had
doubtless its weight also. Oi coarse
Greece has not loniented to disarm
without securing . bods conditions;
her claim for tbe territory conceded
to her by the Berlin treaty is to be
arbitrated. The claim of Greece
Is a very strong cue, and will
b) tenaciously adhered to by
her representatives. When Greece
undertook to entar tbe territoiy ac
corded her by the Berlin treaty, ex
tending from the Ionian to the Egean
sea, the Turks cast every possible ob
struction In their way, and withheld
from them a full third oi hathad
been granted, and still holds it. It is
valuable territory, including a portion
of boutiiern Albania and of the
Epirus and the shore of the Indian
So', giving access to the Adra'ie. lor
this territory Greece will doubtlers
make a keen diplomatic struggle iu
the coir-i g arbitration, and it the
poweis wish to avoid future complica
tions they wiil see that Greece baa
justice this time.

to the South-Tne Tele
WisnmoTow. April 27. A low pom
edy was enacted in the Home tn-day
by a dief rarefnl ecne i 'tween Foran
of Ohio and O'Neill of Missouri. The
former sji'. to the clerk's table tube
read a newnpapr clipniog to the effect
that Mr. O'Neill bad reported Mr.
Foran ai saying tbat tbe question of
tbe labor troubles could only be ended
in blood. O'Neill charged that Foran
bad used the language attributed lo
him and proved bis statement
by prodacing a copy of the reporter's
noUs of Foiao's apeecb. He further
averred tbat Foran had opposed
everything in the Labor Committee
that he (O'Neill) bad advocated, and
said tbat Foran was actuated by jeal
ousy and disappointment in not se
curing tbe cbaiiniansbip of that com
mittee, and was aUictfd with a severe
case of sore head. The language of
both gentlemen was anything but
choice, and tbe scene pre
sented on tbe floor was tbe
most exciting occurrence of ths
session. Toe members from bo h
sides of the House crowded aiound
the participants in thia tongue tight,
which was fiinllv stopped by cries of
' Regular order i" and tbe House pro
ceeded with the business of tbe dar.
Comment on this proceeding to-night
is generally condemnatory, and
neither of the gentlemen baveialaed
anything by their unseemly conduct.
In fact, tbey have lost the regard cf
maDy fellow-members, who were as
tonished at the animus ot the attack
and its ior characteristics.

conditions have slightly improved
within the past week. A weekly im
provement from this out is regarded
as quite probable by nearly all com
mercial and railway authorities. The
railway shipments "for the pant two or
three weeks have been exceptionally
ugiii, uui me runway managers have
been fortunate in preventing the re
newal of the hostilities. The heavy
production of crude and finished iron
and hardware, including hardware
sjiecialties, continues throughout the
New England and Middle States. The
pig iron production is 15.C00 tous per
day. Finished iron produ tion is de
cre sing on account of the srarci y of
soft coal. Anthracite coal is increas
ing in demand, on account of the im
proved Southern nnd West n de
mand. Prices of all manufacturing
sines will increase twenty-five cent
per ton by May 1st. Five hundred
additional coVe ovens are to be built,
and the number will probably reach
100 1 by July 1st.
The strongest and most encouraging
feature to be mentioned is the increas
ing demnd for all kinds of machin
ery for sh p, mill, mine and factorv
purposes. W ire rope, engines anil
boilers of every description, electrical
appl ances and hydraulic machinery
for mines of all' kinds have been in.
active demand during tho past week
or two. This demand for machinery
i regarded with g eat satisfaction by
those who are loo ing for some favor
able indications as to future indus
trial activity. Nearly all the larger
machine shops are running full time,
and the manufactu ing capacity,
which depends upon the spring and
fall trade, is being put in a condition
of readiness for an earlier than usual
resumpt on. The textile factories of
New England are being improved. A
number of new woolen mills have
been projected, and the extension of
capacity is quite general.
Northwestern and Southern ship
pers of lumber are finding the demand
growing eacti week, anil prices are ex
ceptionally linn The demand is con
tinuous iu al Eastern mar-ets. Build
ing permits ar- being taken out in
New York and Philadelphia about an
usual. There is nothing to indicate!
any fulling ofl' in activity in this di
rection. Wool has declined in price under
the increasing foreign supply of the?
law and finished product.
Some little apprehension is occa
sioned in manufacturing circles on ac
count of the tariff issues.
