of work on this grculcat ol tho wooden ol

$1,300,000. "Thore aro twentycven Iron
panels, each ol w hich required a aejiaralo
d!ni?ruiu, that in turn furnished the bonis
olasorios of geometrical designs ralcu
lalod by menus of tables ol logarithms.
The metallic pieces number about 12,000,
mid Iho position ol ench and tho places
lor its rivets had to bo decided with
out orror. In the iron plates wero
drilled 7,000,000 holes, which, II placed
end to end, would form a tube
lorty-threo miles long. Thero wero 500
ciiKinoeiu' designs and 2,500 loaves ol
working drawing It was necessary to
employ forty designers and calculators for
a ieriod of about two years. It is thus
seen thnt the iron forms a vast complicated
network, not easily realized when con
templating tho gracefulness ol the com
pleted tower," Tho first (rallory, 230 Inut
from tho ground, is used for restaurants
and cafes; tho second gallery is 100 leet
Bbovotbis, slid the third gallery is reached
ut a bight of ST.l feet Btirmo'.inling this,
121 feet higher, is a small observation
room, with two windows on a sido, from
which a view of l'nris and its environs

limy bo bad. Four passenger elevators
aro kept constantly In motion by crowds
of adventuresome jieoplo representing all

a benieglng enemy in tiino ol war, and lor
the iiacerlainmeiit of the temperature of
the air at diUcreiit higliU, also the force ol
tho wind and tho proper motion ol the

iwcr of thought over the refractory mate
rials of theearlh, n shown by the ingeuii'
ily of TIioiuhs A. K haou, a power which
Miiiersnii illiiHtr.it-)! in vurious wuvs, Is

Tui ClurbnUle C7ironic.V, encouraged by

that .prosperous though conservative
town, and says that "Clurksvillo possesses
three advantages over Birmingham.
While Iron ran bo produeod hero just ns
cheap the finality Is much superior to tho
Birmingham iron, and the transportation
Irout lioro to '.ho regular Iron markets is
considerably cheaper. Birmingham is
dependent entirely ou her iron industry.
Stagnation in the Iron market nt any time
would seriously affect that city, wbilo
Clurksvillo would bo sustuyiod by her
splendid commerce. This vast iron inter
est Is certainly worth developing." Well,
tho way to develop Is to develop. Clarks
villa has only to unito tier surplus capital
on tho development ol her iron interests,
mid the thing Is dolto. Having the capital,
pluck nnd energy nlono are needed.

Tho Pennsylvania iron men aro in "a

largely of astonishment, chagrin and dis

trol Iho market, fix prices, limit produc

or crowded to Hit) wall. They have had
thoir own sweet way, nnd by means of
combination have worked the home mar
ket for all it wss worth. In other words,
they begun by shotting out the foreign
product on the plea that American indus
tries ought lo be protected. That neces
sary preliminary accomplished they made
every man in tha country who uavs iron
or steel iu any shape pla'ik down a hand
Tho unexected, however, has hap

A Worthy Young Parmer and a Friend

Chatta.noooa, Tenn., May 29. A most
cowardly assassination occurred noar South
Pittsburg, about thirty miles Irom this
city, this aftornoon, that bos created wild
excitement in the neighborhood where it
occurred. A wealthy young farmer, who
stands vory high in the community, bus
been visiting a Miss Barnes, living noar
South PilUburg, a protty daughter of a
luboring man. Tho dilTerenco iu tho sta

rather ugly stories wero circulated, none
of which, it seems, had any foundation.
This aflornoon young Martin, in
company wilh a friend, called to
seo Miss Barnes and remained an hour
or more. Thoy left the house about 7
o'clock: nnd had not proceeded more thnn
a quarter of a milo, through a pieco
of woodland, when they wero
fired on by parties from ambush.
Young Martin was riddled with
buckshot nnd Atkins was seriously
wouuded. Oeorgo, Bob nnd Jim Barnes,
brothers of tho girl, were arrested, charged
with tho crime, nnd an now in JaiL In
formation from South Pittsburg says that a

Why Another New York Democratic
Presidential Nominee Is Not Wanted.
Knnn Ihe f.vatuvllle Courier.
In 1870, and ut each recurring Presiden
tial election since thnt timo, tho Cuurur
has earnestly urged tho nomination of a
Wcatcrn candidate (or President. Its rea
sons hsvo been given at length and re
peatedly presied upon tho Democracy. It
is gratifying tu observe that Western nnd
Southern Democratic papers aro now tak
ing tiie same position for the same reasons
that hnvo so often been given in these
The SL Louis Iti-jmhUe led off in urging
the now party policy as to geographical
lines, and the Southern press nro falling
into line with xeal and enthusiasm. Yes
terday's llt-puMic says:
"The attempt lo crento a following in
the West and Houth (or David 11. Hill ns a
liemocrutic Presidential can lidnto bos
been ono of the most signal failures of
recent politics. Sir. Hill's strength ia iu
thu Tammany wards ol New ork City
und now hro elso. Where he is consid
ered at all outside of them, it is generally
either with condemnation or with con
temptuous indillerence. 'His nnino us a
Presidential candidate,' says that repre
sentative Southern journal, Tiik Mtweins
A ci'KA l., 'would be met with a storm of
opposition, and the Cleveland men would
le indignant beyond any power to concil
iate them. New York is therefore out of
the question if the party is to have any
reasonable chance for success. By taking
a candidate from;tho West, the Democrat
of New York would be relieved of any
excuse for division for personal or locu'l
reasons, and their Stale having so often
been honored in tho post, they could huvo
no excuse for lukewurmncaa. There ia
every reason, then, in the past and thu
futuro of the pnrty In New York, why tho
National Democratic Convention should
go West for its candidate in l2,and why
tho Ninth should insist upon a atep lliu't
is the only one likely to lead to success.'
"Tn Al'l'KAL declares without qualifi
cation thnt the candidate should lie from
the Weal, because It belicvm that the Hill
iulhlence would strain bo used to defeat
Mr. Cleveland in Now York.
"leaving Unit question entirely for the
convention iu s:i.', the iVymWic remains
of the opinion It expressed immediately
after the Novemlier election, tli.it the seul
of political power in the. L'niled States has
been for tho lost twenty years west of tho
Alleghanies. To its failure to recognixe
this fact, more than to any olher cause,
tho Ik'iuocrnlic party owes ita long banish
ment from iKiwor. If ii aiill fails to rocog
nire it, n new Western Mates come in,
and ns Western population increases, il
bos another 'riod of banishment Is fore
11 a. long at the Ural. When the agricult
ural Wct and the agricultural Ninth com
bine the Kli-ctoral College for ihe common
Interest, tho combination will represent
political Power stable and prevailing. The
combination ol thn South and Norlhenst
has never been atahlo, and there is littlo
hope in it lor the luturo. II the IVi.io

The crowd of pntrons and friends who

The program showed skillful work of the

The opening chorus, "Bells of Corno

work, rendered by fresh, young voices,
whose performance might have emulated
a recently amateur rendition.
