The report that steel has been made
at Chattanooga, by the basic process, at
821.75 per ton, was. by a typographical
error, given in the Philadelphia lit ford
as at 82.75 per ton. The larger sunt is
cheap enough to require verification,
but the statement is enough to cause

Harriet Love's Const ant Persecution l?y n
Harriot Love, a colored woman who
resides on Railroad avenue opposite the
oil tank, was overtaken by a TlMKS re?
porter last night as she was detailing to
Policeman Jones an account of her
troubles. She said a nigger man whom
she did not know was constantly per?
secuting her. She was a single woman,
she said, and never intended to marry,
but this man had broken open her door,
and made himself entirely too familiar,
when she called for help.
When it came the man left her house,
but as soon as everything was quiet he
returned and continued bis persecutions.
She declared her intention of swearing
out a warrant for the arrest of her
enemy, whose name she did not know,
but whose face she was familiar with,
and she was advised to do so by all who
heard her story.

It is seen from this that there has
been a decrease in net earnings Tor the
first time in many months. This poor
showing is due largely to heavy de?
creases by a few of the largo systems,
the general condition of not earnings be?

The principal cause for the decrease is
