Secretary of State Blaine, it is announced,
may never return to his duties in "Washing

although his vacation is to last until Sep

be any better by that time. His son,

tErECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Washikgiojt, July 1L When Secre
tary Blaine left for Bar Harbor, and it was
announced that be wouldn't return till Sep
tember, it was understood at the State De
partment, and among his friends, that he
would pay the city a brief visit this week.
His failure to do so up to this time has in
creased the rumors in regard to his serious
It is known to every one that Mr. Blaine
has been looking seriously ill ever since his
arrival in this city. Those who had known
him for long years, and remembered his
florid, vigorous, and even muscular appear
ance, Shook Their Heads Sadly
when they saw his pallid countenance,
the puffed-out condition of bis lower eye
lids, his feeble walk, contrasted with that
of other days, and learned that when he did
go out it was almost invariably in a car
riage, though in former times it was his
custom to walk much and often.
At the time of his recent sickness, when
for days he didn't go out of his room, it was
reported that be had had a stroke of paraly
sis. This was vigorously denied, but it is
now known that his attack was closely akin
to that, and that he has not by any means
recovered from it.
Walker Blaine Secretary De Facto.
He has, in fact, not been able to attend to
his duties after his old habit, except at rare
intervals, and then only for a short time.
His son, "Walker Blaine, has at all times
borne the brunt of the work of the State
Department, and has, to all intents and
purposes, been Secretary of State for three
days out of every four that have elapsed
since the assumption of his office by the Sec
retary. It is this enforced quiet, this absolute
necessity of great care of his health, that is
responsible for the stories that he was thrust
into the background and
Ignored by the President.
The fact that at no time has the Secretary
shown himself conspicuously in the councils
or the policy of the administration, is due to
his own physical inability to enter heartily
into the business and discussions of the
The President has appreciated and sym
pathized with Mr. Blaine, and has at all
times treated him with the utmost considera
tion. AUhoueh the Secretary has really done
no hard work, the small worry he has had has
been sufficient to throw him into a condition
in which absolute rest was
Commanded by His Physicians.
He, of all the Cabinet members, has found
it possible to leave his post of duty at this
early day of the administration to remain
away for the remainder of the summer and
part of the fall, and in no other circum
stances except those of absolute necessity
would he have been spared.
It is the opinion of many who are most in
timately acquainted with Mr. Blaine, and
also the opinion of those physicians who
have had opportunities to acquaint them
selves with his condition, that the Secretary
in all probability will never again be able
to assume the duties of his office, and that
he is taking this long rest as a last resort
before deciding to resign bis office.
WASHINGTON'S GOLD FIELD.
Huge Nuggets In tbe Quartz Fonnd on tbe

lrXCUL TELEQKAM TO TUX DISPATCH.;
Washington, July lL Ex-Senator
Sabin, of Minnesota, who has been adver
tised as connected with a dozen different
business enterprises since his term of office
expired, on March 4 last, will be in "Wash
ington in a day or two to look after his
latest venture. He is one of the stock
holders in a gold mining company that has
just begun the work of digging out the
gold from quartz found on the shores of the
Potomac river, a few miles abore Washing

Secretary Wlndom Decides That Aliens
Who Sign Contracts la America Havo
No Right to Come Here For
"Washington, July 11. The Secretary
of the Treasury has decided that all immi
grants who come to this country nnder con
ditions similar to those of the seven English
immigrants who recently arrived at New
YorkontheObdam, are prohibited fromland
ing under the provisions of the alien con
tract labor law.
An investigation of the case in question
bv the Treasury Department shows that J.
W. "Wrightson & Co., of London. England,
have established an agency for the encour
agement of immigration to the United
States, and that they have agents at Eotter
damand at Sequin, Texas. Persons are
induced to immigrate to this country by
promise of employment, and are furnished
with a circular letter to the Texas agent,
whose business it is to procure them work
and to care for them until he does. The
immigrant is required to sign an agreement
to accept the first employment offered him
by the Texas agent.
Several immigrants holding these certifi
cates have been prevented from landing by
the Collector of Customs at New York, and
the British Minister at "Washington made
formal complaint against his action. He
represented to the Treasury Department
thtt there was no contract, either express
or implied, in the transaction, and that
therefore there was no violation of law.
The papers were referred to the Solicitor
of the Treasury, and he has given an
opinion that the papers which the immi
grants are required to sign, in which they
agree to accept whatever employment is
offered them, is a contract within tbe mean
ing of the law, and Secretary "VTindom to
day acted in accordance with this opinion.
SEEKERS AFTER CRUMBS
Obliged to Possess Themselves In Patience
for More Than One Hoar.
rerEciAL telegram to tile disfatch.i
"Washington, July 11. Tne office seek
ers at the White House to-day had to stand
aside for the Civil Service Commissioners.
The two antagonistic elements were brought
in close contact, and the Civil Service Com
mission was supreme. Messrs. Boosevelt,
Lyman and Thompson were in conference
with the President for more than an hour,
not getting through until about 11:55.
Meanwhile Senators and Bepresentatives
and several seekers after crumbs sat in the
Cabinet room and lobby, possessing them
selves as much in patience as possible under
tbe circumstances. The Commissioners were
talking with the Presidentabout their visit to
New York. Speaking of this visit after
leaving the Cabinet room, they said that
they did not go there to make any investi
gation, but to see to tbe appointment of the
local board, and to confer with Postmaster
VanCott and Collector Erhardt concerning
tbe needs of the service in their depart
ments, and as io the application ana en
forcement of the civil service law.
Mr. Boosevelt said there could be no re
sult from the conference, beyond the im
pression as to the disposition of these new
officials toward tbe law, and a general un
derstanding on the subject. Their im
pression was the new officials fully under
stood their obligations to the law, and would
respect it Their conference with the Presi
dent was en this subject, but they would not
talk about the details of it.
THE LABORER AND HIS HIRE.
An Important Decision as to the Fees of
"Washington, July 11. The Pension
Office recently granted an application for
pension filed by George Qinsson, but only
allowed the attorney in the case $8 as his
fee, notwithstanding he produced an agree
ment between the claimant and himself by
which he was to receive $25. The attorney
took an appeal to the Assistant Secretary of
the Interior, and in a long opinion, made
public to-day, the Assistant Secretary over
rules the action of the Pension Office and
allows the full amount in the agreement
He says that the reason assigned by the Pen
sion Office that $8 was considered an equit
able amount for a fee, taking into considera
tion tbe amount of money received on the
certificate (80) may comport with an ap
preciative sense of the client's needs, but it
has no recognition in any part of the law
bearing upon the agreement
This is considered a very important de
cision, affecting a large number of cases, and
it reverses tbe practice of the Pension
Bureau in this respect

unusually happy,and is exceedingly chatty,
he refuses to talk on the subject of the Gov

other phases. He was quite willing to ex
press an opinion on the Samoan and Hay

the United States lately wreaked by Hadji

topics he seems to be thoroughly posted, bnt

Johnstown, July 11. There seems to
be a growing dissatisfaction with the work of
the Belief Commission. The matter will take
shape in a call for an indignation meeting,
which will be held in the publio park on
Saturday evening. Tbemorement is urged by
prominent men such as CoL John P. Linton,
Herman Banmeter, Postmaster, and many
others. There is much dissatisfaction that,
although there are ten members of the State
Commission, there is not one member from
Johnstown, "W. Horace Bose, who was ap
pointed, having given notice that he was
too ill to attend.
The banking house of John Dibert & Co.
began paying 60 per cent to their depositors
to-day, and promise to be able to pay all
within a few months, when the bank will
quit business. Those who have accepted the
Oklahomas are thoroughly disgusted when
they learn that they will be charged for
them, and many who had orders for them
refuse now to take them.
Captain Hamilton called the burgesses of
the different, boroughs together this after
noon and handed tbem each the following
notice: "Since July 8 the municipal au
thorities have bad fall control of the police
force and all matters pertaining to that de
partment," signed Geo. C. Hamilton, Chief
Engineer. Mr. Hamilton explained that
the borough authorities would hereafter be
liable for the pay of the police, and his ob
ject in calling tbem together was to give
them a clear understanding.
He assured them,however, that themilitia
would be subject to their call at any time a
requisition was made through Captain
Gageley, who would be glad to assist them
in any manner. It is likely that the police
force in all the districts will be largely re
duced on account of this order, as the peo
ple of the boroughs do not have the money
to pay them.
The tents that have been occupied by the
force of dynamiters at the bridge were torn
down to-dav, and the crowd ot loafers that
were lodging there were driven away.
Huts in other parts of the town which are
not regularly occupied will be torn down.
Some of the people who have been depend
ing on the commissaries are beginning to
hustle for a job now, in anticipation of a
shut-off of provisions next week.
BAYED BY A SYNDICATE,
How Senator Washburn Was Helped by a
Party or His FricrV".
rSTXCIAI. TELEGKAM TO TILE DISPATCH.:
Chicago, July 1L The rumors that be
gan to circulate concerning Senator "Wash
burn's financial embarrassment at tbe time,
of the building of the "Soo" Eailroad, be
came greatly intensified during his Sena
torial campaign. The Senator was then
openly charged with buying his seat, and
his election is known to have cost bim away
up in the thousands. According to most re
liable information, Mr. "Washburn dis
covered a year ago that he was not making
money. He was connected with many busi
ness interests that did not thrive, and it be
came evident that to recover from the im
pending disaster it was necessary to attempt
a systematic dropping off of some of his vari
ous enterprises, and this, it is understood,
Things still did not inn smoothly, and
the clouds of financial ruin were lowering
when some of Mr. "Washburn's stanch
friends came to the rescue. A syndicate, it
is said, was formed, with Thomas Lowrey,
C. A. Pillsbury and H. E. Fletcher as lead
ing members, to furnish Mr. Washburn
with money to tide him over nntil he could
dispose of his outside interests and be free.
His entire accounts were gone over in de
tail, and it was found that instead of being
worth several millions, as was generally
supposed, be was not worth anything, ex
clusive of his home, "Pair Oaks," worth
more than 5400.000.

He was afterward released on a writ of

and went to Cincinnati by another route, in
order to avoid arrest. Governor Lowry
asserts that he will follow them up until he
Nashville, July 11. John L. Sulli
van gave an impromptu exhibition in Nash
ville to-day. Governor Lowry, of Missis
sippi, telegraphed Chief of Police Clack
Arrest John L. Sullivan and his fighting
party and deliver to Sheriff here, and I will pay
yon 21,000. Charge, crime of prize fighting.
Robert Lowbt, Governor.
A large number of people were congre
gated at the Union depot this morning
awaiting the arrival at 10 S3 of the Cannon
Ball train, containing the redoubtable John
L. and his party. As soon as the train
stopped it was boarded by Chief of Police
Clack and members of the police force.
Chief Clack, dressed in citizen's clothes,
went up to one of the men and asked hint
where Mr. Sullivan was. The men replied
that he was asleep and could not be dis
turbed. The Chief told him who he was
and that he must see him. The Chief, fol
lowed by several of hrs men, then went for
ward to the stateroom in the front end.
There he found Sullivan, his trainer, Mul
doon, and Charley Johnson, bis backer.
CAUGHT HIM ASLEEP.
Muldoon and .Johnson were sitting up,
while Sullivan occupied a berth that ex
tended the length of the stateroom. The
big fellow was apparently asleep. The
Chief asked tbe other men their names. One
of them said his name was Lynch, and the
other called himself Bobertson. There was
no occasion to ask the name of the giant
lying on the berth. Anybody would have
known that he was the great and only John.
Chief Clack said: "Gentlemen, I'm sorry to
disturb you, but I am Chief of Police for
Nashville and yon must go with me."
"On what charge?" exclaimed Johnson.
"I have authority for the arrest of your
party and you must go with me," answered
"I will not go without a warrant. Yon
must show your authority. I am a citizen
of New York and a tax payer, and I stand
on my rights as an American citizen."
By this time the cars had filled with
people who were crowding for a look at the
scene. The police attempted ineffectually
to remove them. The object of the prize
fighting party evidently was to palaver
until the train pullea out. The Chief told
one of his men to go forward and
HOLD THE XBAI2T. fcj
The officer returned in a few minutes and
said that the train could not be held, as it
was a United States mail train. The Chief
then told him to uncouple the sleeping car.
The foregoing conversation bad passed
while Sullivan was lying at full length,
either asleep or pretending. He was
dressed in a light flannel shirt, open at the
throat, dark trousers, blue belt and slippers.
His hair was cut short and his beard was a
day old. He did not look like he had re
cently been engaged in a prize fight.
The only evidence of the conflict were his
swollen hands. Tbe Chief told his friends
that they must wake him up. They de
clined to do it, and the Chief himself shook
him slightly. Sullivan raised himself up
drowsily, and looked as if he was wonder
ing what all the row was about. The Chief
informed him of his business and asked him
to go with him. He said he would not go.
Tbe Chief said that he meant business and
intended to arrest him,
"Well, what are we going to do about it?"
asked Sullivan, addressing Muldoon. The
latter replied: "Of course we won't be ar
rested unless they show us a warrant."
"Then I won't go," said Sullivan, angrily.
"You can't arrest me, my name is not Sul
livan." CHEEBED BT THE CEOWD.
He got np from tbe berth and tootc a seat
with Johnson. The crowd outside the car
then caught a glimpse of tbe champion
through tbe window and began cheering
vociferously. Sullivan looked ugly, and as
if he intended to resist to the fullest meas
ure of his strength. Finding that Sullivan
was not going, the officers took hold of bim.
He arose and called on his friends. They
did not obey the request, but told him that
he was dealing with the Chief of Police
and advised him not to hit the officers.
"No, I will not bit anybody: but I be
if I will go," exclaimed Sullivan.
Chief Clack caught him by the collar.
Several other officers crowded into the room
and a desperate struggle ensued. Some of
the officers had their pistols drawn, and it
looked like a general pistol as well as
pugilistic fight was about to begin. Three
or lour men caught Sullivan, his friends
offering him no assistance and no resistance
to the officers. Sullivan gave an exhibition
of his splendid strength. He jerked and
pulled and tried to push the officers off.
HE "WANTED A SHOW.
"Give me a show. I won't hurt youjbut
I won't go with you' exclaimed the Her
cules. The officers held to him, although
he was in the heat of passion and looked as
though he could have knocked any of them
through tbe side of the car. If he had
struck some would have received a long
to be remembered blow. The sight of clubs
and pistols were probably what caused him
to restrain his evident strong desire to give
the officers an example of his prowess as a
There were enough officers present, how
ever, to overcome his giant strength. Ono
of them slipped tbe nippers on one of his
wrists aud then on the other. Seeing that
he was at this disadvantage Sullivan gave
in. He was pushed out of tbe car as fast as
the officers could make him move. Johnson
was also handcuffed and taken out. In the
excitement Muldoon was not arrested, but
went on with Pat Cleary and other lriends
of Sullivan. The officers forced their way
through tbe crowd and placed their prison
ers in carriages, three officers and one pris
oner in each carriage.
They drove through Church street and to
the police station. Counsel were at once
engaged and a writ of habeas corpus applied
for. At 3 o'clock sharp Judge McAiister,
of the Circuit Court, made his appearance,
and proceedings were begun. Sullivan and
Johnson, or Lynch, as be gave bis name,
appeared with their lawyers, W. H. Wash
ington, W. G. Brien, A. J. Caldwell and
Thomas L. Dodd.
SOT FEELING PLEASANT.
Sullivan was surly and very sour, but sat
quietly, never moving except to open several
telegrams from bis friends iu New York and
elsewhere offering aid. The city officers
and the State ot .Mississippi were repre
sented by Colonel A. B, Colyar, Judge
Abram Demoss and City Attorney Taylor.
Defendant's petition for writ of habeas cor
pus was read, stating thatjhe had been ar
rested upon no process known to law and
held without any charge against him and
without shadow of legal authority.
He declared that he had committed no
offense against the laws of Tennessee, and
was not subject to legal restraint. He had
committed no felony in this or any other
State. The answer to this petition recited
that Chief of Police Clack had
positive information that Sullivan did
commit a crime in the State of Mississippi,
and that he believed this crime was a peni
tentiary offense under tbe laws of Missis
sippi. Counsel argued at length, and finally
Judge McAiister rendered his decision.
He was very emphatic in his opinion that
to hold Sullivan longer would be a most
arbitrary act on tbe Court's part; that the
officers had arrested him him without war
rant or authority of law; that misdemeanors
were not extraditable by the rulings of Ten
nessee courts and by precedents of Governor
Taylor. He, therefore, ordered Sullivan re
leased. There was an immense crowd pres
ent, and the decision of the Judge was
greeted with great applause. Sullivan was
made a hero of the town. Sullivan and
Johnson went East via the Louisville and

Columbus, July 11. Kiirain and party
came from St. Louis to Seymour over the
Ohio and Mississippi road. At Seymour
the news reached the party of Sullivan's ar
rest. The announcement was unexpected
and disturbed Kiirain, who evidently
feared that his arrest would soon follow. A
conference was held, resulting in their re
solving to leave the Ohio and Mississippi
train and come to Columbus, and if possi
ble reach Cincinnati by another route.
Once there, they express tbe feeling that
thev would be taken care of by friends.
When the party left the train here they
were immediately recognized, and a crowd
soon surrounded them. They entered a,
hack and were driven to the Bissell Hotel,
where Mitchell registered for all. He at
tempted to fool the people by giving ficti
"How came yon to stop off in this city?"
was asked of Mitchell.
"We are safe anywhere, but desire to
avoid arrest," said he.
When asked as to what programme they
intended to follow he refused to talk. He
refused to talk of Sullivan's arrest. During
tneir stay at the hotel a crowd of several
hundred people gathered, anxious to get a
glimpse ot the noted 'guest. Tbe party
ordered supper, but before it could be pre
pared Murphy had stepped out unperceived
and ordered carriages at a neighboring liv
ery stable. In about two hours from tbe
time of their arrival a carriage drove up to
the rear door of the hotel and the party
were hurried into it and driven off at a high
rate of speed, passing out of the city and
north into Kentucky.
Kiirain and Mitchell have many friends
in Shelbyville, and it is thought it is their
intention to reach that place, where thev
will take the Big Four train to Cincinnati.
The proprietor of tbe Bissell House is well
acquainted with Mitchell and Kiirain, and
said thev were going to Shelbyville. To
night William Smith, Sheriff of this connty,
telegraphed Governor Lowry, of Missis
sippi, it he desired the arrest of the party.
The following reply was received:

The passion for pugilism is spreading. A

take satisfaction on the body ot a successful
operator. In this be failed, as the latter,

art of self-defense, and promptly knocked
out the aggrieved broker.
SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO TILE DISPATCILl
Philadelphia, July 11. The Phila
delphia Stock Exchange was enlivened this
afternoon by a scientific set-to between tbe
well-known brokers, William G. Huey,
head ot the firm of W. G. Huey & Co., and
Nicholas Thouron, head of the brokers' firm
of N. Thonron & Co. Thouron was the ag
gressor, but the honors rested with his mus
cular adversary, who knocked him out with
a Sullivanesque blow on the neck. The en
counter took place in the corridor of the
Exchange and created intense excitement
among the brokers, who are enthusiastically
fond of athletic displays.
It was but little past 1 o'clock when Mr.
Thouron walked into the broad corridor of
the second story ot the big Drexel building,
which leads from the spacious front room
occupied by the Philadelphia Stock Ex
change. Mr. Huey was standing in the
corridor talking with some of his friends.
Mr. Thouron seemed to consider himself ag
grieved over a transaction in stocks, in
which, for his alleged unseemly interrrup
tions during the progress of business, he
had incurred repeated reprimands from au
thorities of the Exchange. Broker Huey
had been among those who were on the right
side of the transaction. Thouron l ap
proached him and entered upon a heated
argument upon the merits of the dispute.
Huey soon turned on his heel and walked
away, with the remark: "Yon are too ob
stinate. It is useless to discuss the matter
with you in your present mood."
A vicious assault.
Huey had taken bnt a few steps when
Thouron overtook him. Thouron's heavy
hand touched his shoulder aud Huey tnrned
around. An uncomplimentary and a de
cidedly vulgar remark escaped Thouron's
lips, and his right fist shot from his
shoulder, landing heavily over the passive
broker's unguarded right eye, which
swelled to the dimensions of a walnut
Thouron is a big, strong man. He weighs
210 pounds. His shoulders and chest are
developed to the proportions of a prize ring
combatant Huey is about medium height,
trim built, but muscular. He is 49 years
old, or 10 years older than his assailant.
Huey weighs only 1G9 pounds, but he is
bnilt of steel wire and has been an
athlete irom'his'youth'up, having added to
his other accomplishments a dexterous and
artistic knowledge of the use of his fists. In
his gymnastic feats Broker Huey has been
famous for his ability to give his gloved
opponents the razzle dazzle in short order.
For a moment after receiving the blow
that wonld have revealed the starry heavens
to the eyes of an ordinary man Huey stood
aghast. Although one of the most aggres
sive and wide-awake members of the Stock
Exchange, he is noted for his good humor
and his reluctance to accept a quarrel or to
indulge in anything that could reflect upon
the reputation of the Philadelphia Stock
Exchange as a peaceable, qniet and in
offensive body. It suddenly occurred to
Broker Huey that Nicholas Thouron had
sold his seat in the Stock Exchange and was
no longer a member, with a right to parade
the corridors and pummel members in good
thoubon knocked out.
Then Mr. Huey's left feinted in the region
of Mr. Thouron s capacious stomach, and
his right landed on bis burly antagonist's
jaw. Thouron squared away and then made
a vicious rush. His lithe opponent's blows
fell rapidly on jaw, chest and neck.
Thouron went down from a knock-out blow
under the ear. Brokers who had sur
rounded the combatants then interfered.
Colonel George H. North, the military
member of tbe Stock Exchange, Adjutant
General on General Hartranlt's staff, re
moved, with the assistance of another
broker, the discomfited aggressor in
the fight to the private office of
Secretary Johnson, of the Exchange, where
the bie man's injuries were examined.
Broker Huey, without assistance, 'sought a
seat in the corridor, while the members of
the Exchange clapped their hands in ap
plause. Mr. Huey was evidently the favor
ite of the Exchange. His victory over the
invading ex-member brought him congratu
lation from all sides.
Both brokers live at Merion, and there
were rumors that the dispute would be
fought out on its merits, but the conserva
tive members of the Exchange believed that
the summary disposition of the combat
wonld put a challenge from the defeated
broker out of tbe question.
TOO CHEAP TO PAT.
Telegraph Companies Don't Desire Govern
ment Business at Wanamaher's Rales.
tSFECIAL TXLEQRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
New Yobk, July 11. Postmaster Gen
eral Wanamaker's reduction of Government
telegraph rates from a cent a word to a mill
a word made the Western Union officials in
this city so indignant that they couldn't
talk about it to-day. All the information
that could be obtained there was that the
matter was under negotiation. The Postal
Telegraph Company were also indignant,
but they could talk. They said that unless
Mr. Wanamaker took it back they would
take Government business free rather than
bother with keeping accounts of such petty
figures. Business at a cent a word did not
pay for sending, they said, and at a mill a
word it wonld be cheaper to do it free than
to collect the tolls. The Postal's total in
come from the Government, they said, was
only about $200 a month anyway.
It is said that the Western Union's bill
against the Government is over $20,000 a
year, but even that is not a particularly
serious matter, either for. the Government or
the company. The Postmaster General gets
his power to fix the Government rate nnder
the laws granting telegraph companies the
right of way over post roads and the free use
of timber and stone from Government lands.
Beside this special rate, tbe companies have
to give the Government business precedence
over private business.
The Postal Company officials say that the
privileges of right of way and tree timber
and stone have never been of a cent's worth
of use to them. The Western Union, how
ever, in its long lines through unsettled
territory in the West, must hare profited

rSrXCIAX. TELEOKAM TO TUB DISPATCH.1
New Yobk, July 11. Francis Murphy,
of Pittsburg, wore his blue ribbon conspicu
ously to-day at the Gilsey House, and said
he was very happy because prohibition had
been defeated in Pennsylvania and other
States. He added:
The defeat of prohibition everywhere is a
good victory for temperance. Prohibition is
Pbariseeism, fraud and hypocrisy. It is an at
tempt to bring the church and state together
again. The people will not permit it. When
preachers band themselves together to get the
Legislature to enact laws to regulate the morals
of people tbey are going counter to tbe will of
God. Tbe sale of whisky must be restricted,
and the man who applies for a license most be
known to be respectable and trustworthy be
fore he is permitted to sell liqnor. In truth,
the liquor traffic should be in the hands of good
men. It sounds paradoxical to say this, but I
mean it. A man of judgment and with the
right spirit, standing behind a bar. will refuse
to sell to a man who is an habitual drunkard.
Statutory laws do not stop tbe sale of whisky,
and the best thing that can be done is to regu
late and mitigate tbe evil in a legitimate way.
In Maine, whisky is sold in every town. Of
course prohibition works splendidly in Maine,
because tbe people there know that they can
get whisky whenever tbey desire It. They are
content with the fraud that is going on. The
law is a dead letter.
It takes two men to commit a crime. Tbe
man who drinks is not going to swear against
tbe dispenser of drinks. You never hear of
tbe man wbo gets a drink being arrested.
Then, when the seller is arrested, who in the
neighborhood is going to swear that he bought
a drink from bim. Those summoned to testify
can only remember that the accused sold milk
or lemonade, and so tbe farce of tryingto Carry
out prohibition is ended. The men who sum
my temperance pledge rarely fail to keep it. If
they do backslide seven or more times I do not
despair, but keep
;d at them to reform, when
the true spirit of the Lord gets hold of them
tbey are drunkards no more.
It was time for the rjeonle of Pennsylvania to
rise and assert themselves. The death knell of
prohibition is sounded. We are going forward
instead of backward, and these great victories
against prohibition are temperance victories.
High license and restrictive measures will pro
mote tbe cause of temperance, and the people
are sensible enough to see it.

Boston, July lL There is a rumor

The H. C. Frick Coke Company has pur

Coke and Iron Company, consisting of 1,500
ovens and 10,000 acres of valuable coal
lands. This makes the Frick concern the
largest coke-producing company in the

ot coke. Thje transaction was the largest
that has ever taken place in the coke re

yesterday, and it is the largest transaction
that has ever been made in the Counellsville
coke region. The H. C. Frick Coke Com
pany, the largest in the region, has gobbled
up all the interests of the Connellsville
Coke and Iron Company, owned by the
Leisenrings, or Philadelphia. This con

The property purchased consists of 10,000
acres of coal land and 1,500 ovens in the
best portion of the region. It has long been
coveted by tbe Frick company, as it ad
joins their property, and next to theirs is
the largest and most valuable block of coal
in the Connellsville region. It has been
owned principally by Mr. E. B. Leisenring,
of Mauch Chunk, whose extensive anthra
cite interests require so much of his atten
tion that, having received what he thought
a fair price from Mr. Frick, he concluded
to sell. In connection with this transfer of
so valuable a tract of coke property, it is
said that Mr. Leisenring became disgusted
with the business here on account of tha
actions of some of the concerns Interested in
the late coke syndicate, and desired to have
no further connection with them.
The property purchased lies on the west
side of the Youghiogheny rivor, just south
of Fricks' Trotter coke works, and extends
south from there about six miles through
the center of the coke basin. It has three
plants of coke ovens on it now, each con
sisting of 500 ovens. They are known as
Leisenring No. 1, located at Leisenring;

The mammoth Frick Coke Company is
now able and are producing and shipping
over 12,000 tons of coke daily, requiring
over 760 railroad cars each day
to transport their product. This in it

extensive railroads handle in one day. Out

Connellsville region, the J. M. Schoon
maker Coke Company, the McClure Coke
Company, W. J. Bainey and J. W. Moore
& Co. are among the large operators, but
their combined capacity is only about one
half the production of the Frick company.
A representative of this paper saw Mr.
Frick at bis office yesterday afternoon, when
he admitted that the purchase had been
made, but when asked for particulars as to
price paid, etc., positively declined to state
any, only saying that the purchase wonld
have no effect whatever on the price of coke,
as that is regulated entirely by the law of
supply and demand, and that, while coke is
now selling at very low prices, he hoped
that the iron business would soon justify an
increase in the price.
This big deal has been conducted very
quietly, and but few, if any, operators
knew anything about it until informed yes
terday. A great effort has been made dur
ing the past year to reorganize the old coke
syndicate, but without success. It is not
likely a syndicate will be formed now, as
Mr. Frick will control the market. This
concern has for over two years, until within
the past few months, paid i per cent
higher wages than other operators. He is
now paying higher wages than some of the
other operators, and although reductions
have been offered at some of the works, tha
