knew that the Freo-traile party, with
whom lu interest ami sympathy they
are identified, stands no chance of suc

a calamity platform, and they, therefore,
rejoice at this strike en account of the
opportunity it gives demagogues of Brit

workings of the McKiuley Tnriff. It
" is a very serious matter" for British
iron masters, net because they sympa
thize with the "peer werklugmen," for
they knew all about the high wages and
comfortable homes of the striking Home
stead empleyes, which have brought
many of their own laborers te this Tariff-ridden
country. Ne, It is "serious"
because it may mean success te the ef
forts of the Free-trade " reformers," a
"suspension of the import duty," and
that American consumers will "drnw all
their requirements from this side." It
may mean that our deluded werkingmeu

for British destruction of the American
industry. Homestead werklugmen may
well ask themselves hew the drawing by
our consumers of iron of "all their re

it will prevent strikes, as the Cebdenite
says it will. American werkingmeu
will net strike when their industry is
transferred te England, for there won't
be any werklugmen te strike. But it
seems te us that this result is just a lit

nnd held a consultation with General
Friday night It developed that Ram
hey had filed uome very sensational
charges against C. F. Evans, local
"freight agent at Columbus, O.. nnd It is
expected that some wholesale arrests
will be made Saturday.
The railroad people are very mys
terious in their actions and refuse te
make any statements, but it is known
that one of the most gigantic schemes
for the purpose of robbery has been
discovered, but net until after the read
had been robbed of about S100.000. The
stealing has been jrelng en for some
time. About seven months age a big con
signment of merchandise shipped from
Cincinnati te Columbus disappeared.
Ne trace of it could be found. An in
vestigation was made but no one knew
what had beceme of the merchandise
and the railroad had te pay. After
that dry goods, groceries, cutlery,
liquors nnd every line of merchandise
bejjan te disappear from cars which the
bill of lading showed thej had been
The circumstances under which they
disappeared showed that the work was
done by en organized gang, which must
necessarily have connections with some
railroad empleyes. It was discovered
that the stolen freight was disposed
of through "fences" in Cincinnati,
Columbus nnd Cleveland. The stulY dis
posed of in Cincinnati was disguised
and shipped from Columbus. The rail
road detectives have been at work all
through the state, which resulted in
charges being preferred against Evans,
the agent at Columbus. Other charges
will be preferred against some eflicinls
who nre away up in the service of the
read, and who have suddenly become
WAR BETWEEN PACKETS.

Peoria, 111., Aug 13. The war be
tween the. two packets, the City of
Peoria and the Berenlis Rex, is en the
rampage again. Thursday night as the
two beats were going up the river from
this plncc they came into close quarters
near Spring Ray. The animosity which
had been boiling in them for some
time came te a head, and Pilet Ebaugh
of the Rex fired two shots from a Win
chester rifie at Pilet Leach of the
Peoria at a distance of net mere than
Deth bullets passed through the pilot
house se close te the pilot that it is a
wonder that he was net killed. When
the two bout arrived at Lacen the cap
tain of the Rex, Mr. Swain, Pilet
Ebaugh and his son were all three ar
rested, but Friday morning they were
released en account of lack of jurisdic
tion. Friday warrants were issued for
all three of them, and they will be ar
rested as seen as they arrive in this
city Saturday morning.
The quarrel between the owners of
the two beats hu.s been going en for
two or three yeara. The Rex was the
fastest beat, and it took away a geed
deal of the business formerly done bi'
the Rescue. Sel Yerk, .proprietor of
the Rescue, went te Louisville this
spring and had the City of I'eeria made
en purpose te beat the Rex, and suc
ceeded in accomplishing his aim. This
started the quarrel afresh and the
sheeting is the result.

PiTTSiiUKGii, Aug. 13. The execu
tive beard of the American federation
of labor met here Friday and after an
all-day's session decided that no boy
cott would be placed upon the Carnegie
products at present. The-reasons for
this, according te the official btatement
given out Friday nigh't,"are that the
council Is of the opinion that the firm
is net turning out enough material,
or of a quality te justify a boy
cott. This action, the statement
says, was decided upon nfter a
thorough review of the situation and
consultation with the amalgamated
efiiuials. Should it be necesury in the
future te order a boycott, however, the
beard says, it will net hesitate te de se,
notwithstanding the threat of the firm
te use the conspiracy laws. The beard's
action, it says, does net prevent all
sympathizers from refusing all products
of the company or sending financial
aid te the lonlccd-eut men. A circular
is being prepared and will 1m; issued
Saturday, calling for funds te aid the
