Gloucester, Mass., March 25. Tho
schooner Samuel Gilinan, of Boston, Capt.
Nickeraon in ballast, bound for Rockport
after a cargo of paving stones, went ashore
on Straitsmouth Point at 1 o'clock yesterday.
A heavy galo waB blowing, and the
tremendous seas mado a clean broach over
tho ill-fated vessel. Tho crew could
bo plainly soon from tho shoro clinging
to tho rigging, but tho undertow
was bo heavy that the liioboat did not daro
to venture out. For five hours tho wretched
sailors hung there, wet to tho skin, nmid
piercing blasts and grasping the icy ropes
with numbed fingers in full sight of the

wavo, more powerful than tho rest, picked
tho vessel up as if it had been an eggshell
and lauded her bo high on tho beach that
tho men could with difficulty get ashore.

AhIcciI to Renounce tho Union.
St. Louis, Mo., March 2G. Tho strike at
the Vulcan Steel Works has proved a most
disastrous ono to the strikers. When tho
, places of the latter wero filled with nonunion
men it was thought by the strikers
that tho outsiders would make a failure
of making steel, and that the mill
owners would have to recall tho union
men, but tho non-union workmen made a
success of their tusk and the result was a
baoksct for the unionists, which they
wero unprepared for. Tired of lying idlo
and seeing doi'cat staring them in
tho face, the union men on
Saturday last mado tho proprietors an offer
which was nothing less than a proposition
to return to work at the reduction originally
offered. Tho proprietors to-day signified
thoir willingness to back tho
etrikors on thoir terms, providing thoy loft

strikers are considering this last proposition,

the feeling against the Nobles has boon

was held shortly after their acquittal, at
the conohiBion of whioh both men were
hanged in offigy. Tho Nobles, being thus
throatcnod,went across the river to Tazewell
county and rented farms; but having
some stock around the old place, Ed. Noblo
returned for the purpose of driving it to
their new home. Ho arrived at the old
place and started with tho stock at once,
accompanied by his brother, a young
lad fourteen years old. Within a
half mile of Mapleton, just as
they came to a lonely point
whero the road ran alongside a deep
ravine, from tho shelter of an uprooted
tree by the roadside, the loud discharge of

Nr.w York, March 26. Tho milk war
which for over a week has agitated tho
people of New York may bo called at an
end, but. only an armistice has really been
agreed upon. The committee of producers
met at tho CoBmopohton Hotel ana
though thoy were unable to agree with
tho committee of dealers from tho milk
exchange, a committee from tho
r pendent dealers met them late in the after
noon anil compromised tho matter oy
agreeing to a 'yearly rate of forty cents.
The milk exchau go, members say they will
not countenanco the aotion of tho independent
dealers, and will not allow them to dictate
terms on which to mako contracts.
The prospects aro that the consumers will
yot be treated to a triangular fight, in
whioh tho produoerB and tho two branchos
of the dealers will take part, while between
the thrco parties the consumer will bo mado
to still further suffer from a short supply
Collecting a Judgment from Rcnieayl.

officer in five languages to leave tho violin,
and ho offered a gold watch, chain, a diamond
pin and 500 in cash in fact, everything
ho had in tho room to sparo the
violin. Tho officer was obdurate, and carried

" I'rotrreBflivo Religion."
Cleveland, 0., Maroh 20. Thoro is
serious trouble in Graco Episcopal Church
hero. Somo monthB ago tho pastor of tho
church, Rov. Dr. Hinklc, established a confessional
similar to thoso in tho Catholio
Churoh and claimed it was according to
tho ritual of tho churoh. Tho matter has
raised a tremendous row in tho congregation,
and thero are now two opposing factions
in tho church. Thoso belonging to
what is known as the Ilinklo congregation
are livo, zealous, energetic
of tho church, who aro rathor favorable
to claborato ritualistic proceedings.
The othor side aro opposed to an ornato
ritual as represented by tho pastor, and
Baid to bo in tho habit of drawing an invidious
distinction betweon tho present condition
of tho churoh and the preceding and
moro satisfactory period. Tho annual
meeting of tho officials of the church takes
plaoo to-morrow and a groat deal of interest
is attaohod to tho meeting. It is
probable that an effort will be made to
force a resignation upon Dr. Hinkle. One
of tho highest ofhcials in the church, in
answor to a question as to whether an effort
was to bo mado at the annual election
to doposo Dr. Hinkle, replied that to many
of the congregation the pastor was distasteful,
and that since the facts about his
privato confessional had becomo the property
of tho publio a number have left the
church. Another prominent ohuroh official
said: "Dr. Hinkle belongs to a secret
monkish order that has its headquarters
in England. It is from that
order that he roceived and accepted those
high ritualistic ideas that border on Born
an ism. I toll you that English order is
dangerous. I am creditably informed that
one of their doctrine is that old cardinal
doctrine of tho Jesuits that the end justifies
the means. When a man believes that and
is ready to practice it, then I think he has
approached very near the bordor of Roman
It was learned to-day that tho finances of
the church havo beon in & . very bad condition
for somo time, and that the management
had been iucompotont and disastrous,
and that tho oleotion to-morrow would result
in a thorough investigation of the manner
in which the finances of tho church had
been managed. It may be significant, in
this connection, to .stato that the finances
are controlled by tho factiou.

SiiULUYViLLU, 111., March 20. A Ml(l
case of seeming criminal carelessness ha-
come to light. Two children of Mrs. Sniitli
bad been ailing, and were attended by Dr.
Brandt, of Lalccwood. Lust Tuesday ho

PROSPECTS OF FRANK IIATTON.

New i Peculiarly Fitted for tho Position,
and That the fj olden Oppor.
WAsniwoTON, March 20. Immediately
upon the rocoipt of a telegram hero last
evening announcing the death of Postmaster
General Howe, at Madison, Wis.,
tho politicians began forecasting his
and tho possihlo changes tho death
will mako in tho cabinot. It is the general
belief that First Assistant Postmaster General
Hatton, who by oustom will succeed
to acting Postmaster General until tho President
names tho successor, will bo chosen.
Mr. Hatton has for several months been ono
of tho President's confidents. Ho has, iu
fact, been tho Postmaster General from tho
day of his introduction into his office, and
is considered by every ono as espcciaUy
Btrong with tho President. Hatton scorns
to havo mado a very good officer. Ho is
enorgetic and plain spoken. Ho is freo
and easy. Ho does not get excited,
and acts on tho spur of tho
moment with as good judgment as when ho
takes his timo to a problem. All the30
qualities suit tho President. Postmaster
General Howe has not figured prominently
at cabinet meetings at any time, and bus
been represented by proxy at most of tho
late meetings of late, so that his death,
whilo fully recognized and deeply folt, will
not occasion any special distress. Tho
death was not a surpriso here, as it has
been known for somo timo that tho Postmaster
General was rapidly failing in
The friends of Assistant Treasurer John
C. New, of Indiana, aro talking strongly
for Mr. New for the postmaster generalship.

THE LADIES' CHANCE "
! BXDKR THE CIVIL SERVICE LAVS
They May Compete for the Rest Ofllcea.
Washington, Maroh 20. Women in and
out of the departments have been studying
the civil service laws, and have decided
that under them no distinction can be
mado betweeu the sexos in competing for
places. Tho sexes must bo subjootcd to
tho same tests, and if tho women excel they
mint bo selected for appointment. Ono
would think that this is a self evident
proposition, but it is a rut her startling one
to the mule clerks, and to the heads of
departments, who. as a general thing,
mo o posed to any iuorciiso iu
tho force of I'eimilc cb'rks. Heretofore
wuiiicn havo been oMi;d to entor the
:. i.M at much lower .-a aii"s than men,
.iii.l )iiiu neier liccn tahuoccd to tho
ii y.hoi grades. Two-i liird.s of tho malo
i ivk havo been npp.untcd nriginully to
Mioanciiw .it salaiics of $1,200
j'tr your. On the otlii'r hnnd, thero are
'ow. if any instances, of females being
i. ifd to clerkships when firt
iiier'uig tho service. They are almost
uuisei sally placed at $70 or $76
jMir month, no matter what their
iliiu'iincntions. Further than this, somo
inquiry has failed to hoar of any instance
of a female clerk being advanced to a salary
of .VI, 800. There are a few of $1,000
not above a doen in the whole .service.
The limit for them seems by general consent
to be $1,200. This is entirely without
rcferoiico to eupucily. Thoic are instances
of linguists and translators at
$1 ,200 per year, oil ling in the room with
men who do vastly inferior work, but who
receive for it a third uoro salary. Undor
the uew law merit al e is supposed to win,
and tho argument of the ladies that tho
host places are to be opened to them seems
to bo unanswerable.

that the killing was justifiable. Witnesses
