LABOR HELPS BUSINESS.
IVM Interruption Through Strikes Than
In Any Other July Fur Yearn,
New Yokk, July 29. R. G. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade issued to
day said in part:
There is certainly room for some de
crease when the volume of payments
through the clearing house in July is
47.2 per cent larger than last year, and
5!.t per cent larger than in lfc-112, the
list of all previous years. So great an
advance would warrant expectation of
some set back under ordinary circum
stances. This year the unusual freedom
from labor troubles about July 1 is fol
lowed by some signs of a tendency to
strike because great works are com
mitted far ahead and canuot halt with
out loss. But interruption of business
by labor trouble of all sorts has been
less than in auy other July for years.
jor is tno movement oi products
hampered. Western receipts in Julv
have been lS,8Go,826 bushels, against
7,300,333 bushels last year to date, and
of corn 20,485,251 bushels, against 9,
173,355 bushels last year, even the latest
week showing large gains over last
year. Exports of wheat from both
coasts were 9,939.280 bushels, flour in
cluded, against 8,b33,192 bushels last
year. Ccrn exports ako coutiuue sur
prising, 11,GS4.521 bushels for the month
thus far, against G,7G7,U63 last year.
Official returus make the iron output
for the first half of 1899 only G,2S9,107
tons, with decline in known stocks out
side the great steel companies of 288,
140 tous, aud net exports were prob
ably over 100,003 tons While tho in
crease of steel companies' stock would
probably make actual consumption less
than has been estimated, it is much
larger than ever beiore aud yet appears
less than production in Juue, while
production has much increased this
month. Mcauwnile no advance in
prices is significant and a slackening of
demand iu some important branches.
The heavy ris? l a urally cuts off much
buying for an advance and retards buy
ing for consumption. Ail records are
broken in tlie Uonuellsville output of
190,792 tons o'uv for the week, with
18.U94 oveus yielding an I only 31 idl .
Muliuiauun-ers nave Uej uuyiug
much wool, it is said, but less tho past
week, although mauyaro taking sample
bales. Goods are in fair demand, but
no further change in prices is men
tioned. Sales in four weeks have been
4G,729,G00 pounds, which 38,954,800
pounds were domestic. In 1897, with a
new tariff comiug, speculation took
46,109,200 pounds, normal consumption
being about half that quantity.
Railroad business for July shows the
largest increase in any month this year,
10.1 per cent larger than last year and
iu.4 per cent larger than m 1892.
Failures for the week have been 151

The great Sir Isaac Newton, one of

manifested in Sir Isaac's action was
due to want of thought. Any reader

backache, sharp twinges which went

quickly and a chronic bladder troub

treated by Doan's Kidney Pills.

A home rcene in the life of Christ is
presented tn us in the topical reference
Christ, with his disriplps. is in the fa
vorite home of Mary, Martha and Laz
arus. Martha, probably heing the older
of the two sisters, serves Marysits at
the feetof Jesus and listens to his word
All does not go well with Martha She
romplaius to .leans that Mary does net
help her. But Christ commends Mary
for her choice to sit at His feet, and
chides Martha, not because she was in
terested in the eiitertaiume'nt of Him
and His friends, but because of her over
anxiety in reference to things of minor
importance, because she attached more
importance to caring for the temporal
wants of her friends than she did to
caring for the spiritual wants of her
self. The good part that Mary chose was
to sit at the feet of Jesus to hear His
word, as He spoke to the disciples or
perhaps to herself She cared not so
mnch for the feeding of the body as for
the feeding of her own soul. And well
might Christ commend her for her
choice Would that we might all choose
to sit at the feet of Jesns. where we
can have our souls feed upon the-bread
of life rather than to have our affec
tions centered upon the world, trying
in vnin to feed the poul upon the husks
which nourish not The good part
chosen by Mary in receiving the Saviour
was undivided devotion to His word,
the feeding on the bread of life which
cometb by bearing In the highest sense
the good part is the spiritual reception
of Christ Himself This should be the
choice of all. Christ should be our first
choice. "Seek ye first the kingdom of
Mary's part was good because it was
eternal. It was "that good part which
shall not be taken away from her."
The good parts of this world soon pass
away from us or we from them The
superiority, therefore, of an eternal good
should he apparent to all. and we
should, if governed by reason and good
judgment, be easily influenced to "love
not the world, neither the things that
are in tho world," becanse "the world
passetb away and tho lust thereof, but
he that doeth the will of God abidetb

Baptism of Pain.
Over and over again the old truth
comes back to us. that no man is good
for much till he has suffered a great
sorrow The baptism of pain is one of
the instrumentalities which God uses
for purging away the dross of our na
tures and making us fit to be partakers
of the inheritance of the saints in light.
Not those who have escaped the fiery
trial, but those who have gone through
it and come out unhurt and glorified
are to be envied. God knows what is
best for us. Therefore he sends first
one affliction and then another upon us.
Sometimes, because he sees it to be nec
essary, he lifts the very floodgates and
allows wave after wave of misfortune
to sweep over us. If we have the right
Etuff in us, we shall be helped and not
harmed by these seeming calamities.

TEIPAETITE TREATY WK0NG
Chambers Says Xo Government Will Suo-
ceetl In amoa Uiitler It Prob
ably Won't Kcturn.
Sax Fkaxcisco, July 29. Chief Jus
tice AV. T. Chambers of Samoa arrived
here on the steamer Moana accompanied
by his family. He is on a four months'
leave of absence, but said that his busi
ness in tho United States is of sucn a
nature that he would probably not re
turn to Apia.
In an interview tho chief justice said
in part: "All is now quiet in Samoa,
but I cannot answer for the future.
Both Mataafa and Malietoa affest to be
satisfied with the present arrangement,
which abolishes tlie eflice of king and
vests the responsibility of government
in the consnls of tho three powers. I
feel sure Malietoa is sincere in this.
"Mataafa is ambitious. For many
years he has thirsted for power and
will not be so easily satisfied. At the
same time he is a man of exceptional
ability, is shrewd and I have never
thought the interests of the natives
would especially suffer in his hands.
"Yes, my decision has been sustained
by the commission and it has published
the fact in a proclamation.
'In its work the commission has en
deavored to eliminate from the orig
inal arrangement all of the features
that have appeared fanlty or weak.
Those sections have simply been struck
out, leaving nothing iu their places.
What will rob the whole document of
proper eilectiveness is the tripartite
treaty under which it will have to
operate. I am sure that no govern
ment iu Samoa will succeed under such
an arrangement. The sooner the pow
ers see this and formulate tome correc
tion the better for all concerned."
Judge Chambers said he had finished
up all of the cases to come before the
court this summer. Tho commission is
empowered to appoint a chief justico
ad interim, to act iu case anything
arises before a permanent appointment
is made. Up to the time Chambers left,
the commission had not decided whom
the new man would be.

Houston". July 29. hi an interview
the Hon. J. W. Bailey said: "I am
fully persuaded that the national ad
ministration has entered into a full and
complete agreement for an alliance be
tween Great Britain and the United
States. This alliance, in my opinion, is
to be both offensive and defensive. I
think the reason it has not been pub
lished to the world is that for political
reasons the president is afraid to do so."

Laborers Injured In Wreck,
WORK TRA1X STRUCK SHIFTER.
Iwo Loaded Cars Piled Into a Heap and '
31any of Them Were Hurled Under the
Debrla Kugineer Couldn't Stop the.
Train In Time.
Stecbexville, July 29. A serious
wreck occurred on the Cleveland and
Pittsburg road, between this place and
Mingo Junction, in which 100 laborers
were more or less injured. Work train
No. GoG left Steubenville with two car
loads of men, who were engaged to do
some work at Mingo Junction. The
train was rounding the curve near
Jefferson schoolhouse and crashed into
the Mingo shifter. The two cars carry
ing the workmen were piled in a heap
and many of the workmen buried b
neath the debris.
All were considerably bruised. Will
iam McCartny had his leg sprained and
Robert McEIcannan his arm sprained.
Aged Jack Howard was injured by tho
stove falling on him. The engine and
both coarches were damaged. The en
gineer of the gravel train remained at
his post and was nearly buried with
coal in the tender of the engine.
For weeks the Cleveland and Pitts
burg lias suffered from a congestion of
freight traffic in this sectiou, and ths
cause for the wreck is attributed to this
fact. When the engineer of the gravel
train saw the danger he tried to stop
his train iu time, but the roils were wet
and tho train, due to great speed, went
along with apparently unchecked mo
mentum. The wreck caused ereat excitement
here ami iu Mingo until it was learned
that no one was seriously injured.

Canton, Ohio, says: "I have suf
fered for about three years with se
vere backache, also with nervous
ness. I think my liver was torpid
for I was bilious and had spells of
dizziness. Morrow's Kid-ne-oids and
Liver-lax being recommended so
highly for such troubles, I decided I
would try them. They greatly re
lieved me of all my ailment and I
now feel better in all respects."
