A BRIDUK ACROSS TIIK IM.
A f rat drat has beei raid and wiit
ten about a bridge across the Missis
sippi, a great deal that was msiely in
the way of prompting, or nrgingr, or
snKgettion, and much of it that sas
purely speculative, the reea'.t of the
rapid growth of the railrjid lnteref ti
of lh city in the past few ytars.
Hereaftsr there will re no ocra-
on fcr thin. The Kansas City
and Mem phi j Railrjad and Bridge
Company, a rjjnlarly chartered organ
izatbn hs undertaken the work, has
II the capittl necessary subscribed,
11 tbe preliminary surveys made and
the cott ealcalated for cantilever
bridge that will b h'gh enough at tbe
highest water and wids enough be
tween the piers to admit of tbe
largest strainers pawing under i'.
sideways, if desired. A'l tbat
is needed is the news ary Con
gresfiocal legislation and that Is
now before the II juss in the form of
bill. Ia tbe interest cf the people
of Memphis and these of the wide ex
tent of ciuntry through which the
rallroidi centering here paw, the Ap
rest, arges the past ago of this bill
upon the attention of the Senators
nd representatives from Kinsv,
Missouri, Arkanscs, Ventucky, Tan
nessss, Missisiippl and Alt-
bsma. It will tike three or f jur
years to build such structure as the
Kansas City Company rontemputis,
thcrtbre the nectssity for urgency.
However skillfully managed, it Is not
possible for odc transfer rompsny in
tbe future to handle with needed ex
po Jition all the traffic of the Memphis
railroad system. A bridgi is neces
sary, and a biidge ought to be built.
If will save time, and therefore
money, fcr paiscnger, shippers nod
railroad companies; it wi l ennblo the
lat'er t3 shorten their schedules east
and west, and thus greatly facilitate
their pAesenjrfr. and freight traffic.
The membeYsol Co tig ess from the
States mentioned will do a great pub
lioiervlcs by tpsedily piatiag the bill
- granting the privilege of constructing
s a bridge aorosi the Mississippi to ihs
JKansas City a-u Msmpbis Railroad
and Bridge Company.
AwEBICAR COTTOB SIBIf HUOILD
There never was a better lime than
ths pre eat for (he assertion by Amer
ican cotton men of their independ
ence of Liverpool direction and con
trol, and a declara ion accompanied
by prjof that hereafter they deter
mined to regulate prices. Not merely
the fact that we produce two-thirds of
the world's supply, but that ths ic
creasing consump'ioa of our spinners
warrants ns in Uklng such a position.
This)oar it has been cr-retully s 1
mattd that theconsump ion of Amer
ican st itinera will reach 2,200 COO
ba'es, as compared with 1,700,000 the
year before, quite oce-third of the
total crop, which it is estimated will
reach (1,650,000 bales. With tin no.
facts before ns, and in the present
statu tlcal condition of tbe market,
we would be quite justified in
lnllia'iog this movement by an
advance corresponding with the
dvantsg tbey give. The total stick
of all co l tons in Liverpool on the "1st
instant was 030,009 bales, ngalost 959,.
000 bales at the came time the year
before. Of this 450,000 biles are
American, 335,0 0 bales less than tho
amount oi baud at the same date la t
year, the stock sflott and ashore- being
177,003 ba'es less than al the same (fate
la it yen. As to the future, up to tbe
cloie of the year, Liverpool will need
from the tint of June, 25,000 biles per
week mire than she did list year,
when consumption war clocked by a
nine'ydey bckout at Oldlnm and
other spinning centers. Confirm njr,
this, Mr. Ellnon computes the con
sumption olGrcit Britiia for the last
five months of last yrar as 400,000
bales loss than tbe pr,c ding five
months. In this country, at
this time las', year, Fall River
was completely shut up, and all
Northern and Southern factories were
working on short time. American
consumption will, as we hive stated,
fjot up S.IOJ.OOO bales this year, as
against 1,700,000 b iles lust All spin
ners hnva made money this year,
whereas last year they loit. In addi
tion to this Ellison estimates tbe pre
sent consumption of Europe at
74.000 bales per week for Great
Britain and r.2,000 for ths Continent.
Sboild this rate continue for a few
week i it must noceaearily decrees
stocks t a point which will eliher en
lunce prices or enforce short time.
Tie visible supply of cotto i, it is
aim to be remarked, is only
30,000 balf s in -cu of last year, nod
it is likely, under present circum
stance, to decrease s'eaiily each
week. Ia these figures and facts there
seems to na to be suUkient warrant
to justify movement tbat will trans
fer to this country from Liverpool the
initiative ss to prices and Eecurs be
yond futnre dispute the control of tho
cottm market. We have the key to
the poution and ws should keep it.
ARBITRATION A KEKMITT.
Brndtireet'i shows by careful and
convincing calculation that the ajjgre
ca'e losses of all concerned in the re
cent strikes foot up td the enormou
' total of .')J,:ttX,ii 'to. Of this aino nt,
$3,O00,'lO were in wu.-i--, completely

necessity for arbitration?
TIIK HST Or TWO !SIA'lt tOl.LY.
Trivial incident! often produce great
evils. Insignificant men rometimes
cause war and bloodshed between na
tiorsand tbe eipsnrliture of millions
of dollars. Mr. O'Lesry's cjw, by
k'eking over a lamp, dtstroyed the
city of Chirago, and it is impostib'e to
eniimate tbe cost wl ich Hal I and Iror s,
ba Jing Knighti of Labor, have cat tbe
country. Capt. C. E Henry of Clove
land, who was crdered by tbe United
Court, nod-tr w hose order theTnas
and Pacific road was being operated by
s receiver, to make a thorough inves
tigation of ths causes which led to
the strike, in making h'"s reput siys:
' That be commenced taking testi
mony at Mtrjbsll on April It.b, and
the evidence generally obtained was
that most of the men engaged in the
ft'isedidnot krowaht' it. was for.

the Udimony thtnved Hint hr iron a worth

Ut hit dutiti, hi attnitiun ln ing almorbrd
in Undying the ruin of Me Kniijhtt of Ln
hit, and drifting tinir to committee work
for hi order that thimlj h'irt been given
to the railroad company. Everything n
h s ( Hull') istiruat'oa appeared to be
arcondiry to tbe Ka'ghti of Labor,
and he assumed in his i in i nation
tne responsibility s of tue general
nanegHr, lepal adviser and general
executive ctlioer of the road, and
wanted everything subordinated to
he crgannaUon ti which he be'onged.
Cipt. Henry said he bad examined
the cnmpiny's b ok", which showed
that under Hill's f 't hue ship the
work in the shoes had cot the com
paoy 60 per cr,t more than it did un
der nis piediceasor."
Martin Irons, the man who ordered
the famous strike, prepsred a written
statement f jr the Curtin Congressional
Committee In wbioh be said :
"At tbe time of Hall's discharve,

to Hall, in w tness' prestnci, to take
them to Dallas, whf re grievances and
Hill's dibarge were to be discus led.
But as the board numbsred five, and
only tltM passes we-e given, and as
tber were banded tj Hail and n t to
him, be regrdei ths act ss another
el'ght on tbe order, and declined to

asaio, and received a meesage pur

he should Cill out the men. Here
ceived no reply and did call tbe men

fjr an adjustment of tho grevancts,
he alter wsid called out the Miisjnn
It will be seen from these extracts
that ths greatest strike ever n wo In
ths United States wos brought about
by Hall and Irons, for no o her cause
than a purely personal grudge toward
the Texas Pacific rallio id because its
officiuls refused I'onsapais. Such a
monstrous crlms against the grea'
bnslneiB Interests of tbo country and
the workingmen who are members of
the Knighls of Labor, was lnsp'red by
Hall, discharged because of bis incom-
pslency, and Irons, because he failed to
get a trie pss. The lots to the conn
try by the f jlly of these two mf n rni-
not be estimated. The Chicago Tim
has been trying to figure up what ths
strikes In that city have cast, but it
his so far not got beyond ths building
department. All tho architects In
ths cily were Intirviowsd, and
there was a uianlinity of opin
ion that the aggr.ga'e v.ltio
of work in hand before tbe
strikes was $25,000,000, and Hut $10,
000,000 sort a of this work was stopped
for tin year at .eist. Forty por cent,
of money expended for buildings goes
for labor, amounting in the Chicago
case to $1,000,000108'. to labor in this
one department. The figures just pub
l'Hhed by liriditr,et'f give the total
loss in wsges st $2,802,000; In current
business, $2,105,0X0; and in nsw busi
ness, coniliting of oniric's cinceled
or poftpoaed at f '2 1,800,000; at tl ol
$.".1,707,01)0. These figures aro based
upn definite information and may be
be regarded as a very modeia'e ttate-
msnt of the grand total of losies in
curred, for necessarily many of the
minor cases have beea overlooked,
though in each of thoss caeei more or
less embarrassment, loss and suffering
resulted f om ths shutting down of
business and the stoppngs of wages.
Tin coat ft the recent strikes Icnugu
by Hall and Irons after all
may be a blo-glng In d'sguise.
It will induce tbe Cleveland conven
tion, now in serslon, to deviee meth
ods tint will prevent such men as
Hall and Irons from forcing a s rlke
without sufllc ent caute. Toe conven
ti n will doubtless bring orde
oat of i ha is. Owing to ths re p'd and
en rmous growth of the Knights of
Labor, it has luconis unmanageable,
and is threatened wito dislntegrition
through iti ovn weight, the incjn
grnity and contumacy of I's elements.
The Ceve'and cinvenlion will no
doubt reorgin'zs aad make the organ
isation so compact and disciplined that
capitalUt', knowing its power, will te
epsct its demands and thus prevent
any fuither detriment t the great
butinssa interests of the country.

The game yesterday bstw-ea Mt-m-pl
ii and Charle ton was epoi t as an
exhib.tir n of ball playing by the infe
rior wo'k of t?ay, the Chailes on 8hM
stop. Bit for cim tbe retu't miglt
have been different. Knonffw s cot

tb.t the locals tad th ng their own

needless to say that be la led to fill it,

about two men t f Say's caliber to
cover the ground tbat Gsrdnr covers.
But tbat ia no faultol Say's; Ga driers
are scarce and do not grow on tiess.
Tbe numerous errors made by tbe
visitors led many t) descr be thegime
