A lilNt of IllKl IIIIIS.
Washington, Juno 1. Cashiers of lnrj
mercantile establishments complain thn
counterfeit money is in circulation to nil ai
most unprecedented extent. Notes of tli
denomination of S2 arc said to bo most com
mon among tbo counterfeits, but much can
has to bo exercised to nvoid being victimized
by pcoplo attempting to pass bad $
bills. If there is but ono Haw in tho character
of an individual that flaw is found in
a willingness to part with money suspected
of being" bogus, without making surcbefou
oil'cring it. There aro varieties of honosty,
and such a test would bo complete in deciding
between two kinds, tho difference
separating which is far from being distinctly
marked in tho ordinnry event
of buying and selling. Tho people
whoon simply suspocting that a pieco of
mnoy ia not good would, ns a matter ot
conscience, rofraln from parting with it until

crowded if all of this class in Now Haver-met
thcro at tho samo timo. Most people
when called upon to decido in vofcrence i
whether a bill is cood. oxnmino tho cucw
ing and tho quality of the paper, and i
these appear right have little doubt re
maining. Many worn good bills, how
ever, fail to oppear to tho unskilled
eyo as nicely engrnvgd as somo counter
feits, and very frequently oxperts aro un

A Youth I'erlHhPM In nn Attempt to
Itcflctio n Ilrother.
Richmond, Va., Juno 1. Tho details ot a
noble act of heroism on tho part of a youth
in saving tho life of one brother from their
burning home and losing his own lifo in
an attempt to rescue another have just
been received from Bowling Green, Caroline
county. Tlio houso of Mr. K. R.
Farish was discovered to be on fire about
11 o'clock nt night. Tho flames soon cast
a lurid glare ovor tho suburbs of Bowling
Green, and tho neighbors, on seeing it,
rushed from tlioir dwellings to rendci
what assistance was in tlioir power. Mr.
Farrish was absent from home, but his
wife, who wns a confirmed invalid,
with all of her children, wer
known to bo in tho burning
building. Mrs. Farish and somo of thu
children were with great difficulty rcsoued
from tho flames; but two of tho lattor wera
Btill found to bo missing. Tho entiro housa
was at this time a mass of seething, hissing
flames, and intense excitement
about tho two boys, who wero apparently
doomed to a terriblo death. At
this juncturo tho eldest son, a youth of
eighteen, dashed into tho building, and,
though given up for lost, soon reappeared
witli one of tho boys, amid the choeis of the
excited multitude Ho hastily gavo tho
boy into his mother's arras, and again
rushed into tho blazing house, nlas I never
to return again. Ho struggled hard to
reaoh his brother, but was crushed amid
tho falling rafters and crumbling walls.
His mother mado frantic efforts to enter tho
houso after her dovoted boy, but sho was
fsreibly removed from the sorrowful scene.

Cincinnati, Juno 1. Tho following
"digest of rccont legal decisions will be
fouud of Interest to tho general publio :
T. bought a third class railwny tickets
which was not transferable and Sold it to
II., who in turn sold it to B. Tho conductor
took up tho ticket and required P.
to pay liis faro. P. sued tho company for
damage's and was given a verdict for
71.70, tho vnluo of tho ticket. Ho was
not satisfied and carried tho case (Post vs.
Chicago & Northwestern R. It. Co.) to tho
Supromo Court of Nebraska, by whom the
judgment was a'firmed. Judge Muxwoll,
in the opinion, said: "A regulation of a
railroad company providing "for cheaper
rates of faro between certain points, and
requiring that tho ticket shall bo used by
tho person getting it only and within the
days specified upon it is reasonablo and
proper, and it is of no validity in the hands
of n third person. Such a ticket, howover,
cannot bo taken by tho conductor from tho
holder of it, for ho is entitled to tho possession
of it to enable him to rccovor the
amount ho paid for it from his vendor."
RAILROAD EMPLOYE TAKINO 11ISK.
A man whoso direct duty was on the
" bridge gang " of a railroad company
was ordered with other men to repair
a well which supplied water for tho
engines. This well was in a dangerous
condition, and tho workman wns badly injured
by the earth abovo falling on him.
He sued and recovered damages from tho
company, which carried the case, in error
(Galveston, II. & St. A. 11. It. Co. vs. Lempo),
to tho Supromo Court of Texas, who reversed
tho judgment. Tho Chief Justice
(Willie), in tho opinion, said: "When a
person enters tho employment of anotlicr
ho assumes all the risks ordinarily incident
to tho business, and lie is supposed
to have contracted on tlicso terms, and
when ho lias equal knowledge with tho
master of tho danger incident to tho work
ho takes tho risk upon himself if ho goes
EXECUTORS BORROWING ON MORTGAGE.
A will has this clauso in it: "If it
should seem necessary at any timo to dispose
of h portion of my real cstato for the
payments of my debts I hereby givo my
executors powers po to do, either at public
or private sale.'' The real estate of tho
testator subject to this power of sale was a
very largo tract of land worth 400,000,
tho value of which would bo heavily depreciated
by selling it in portions, and a
purchaser of it in a body could not bo obtained
except through unusual efforts.
The executors thorefore determined to
enough to pay tho debts on mortgago
on the land, and to authorize this step
tiny filed a bill for the construction
of tho will (LoebsJUhal vs. Raleigh) in
tho Court of Chnnccry, of New
Jersey. The- Chancellor, in tho
opinion, said; Where a power of sale is
given to rniso a particular charge only,
and tho purposo can bo nnswered better by
a mortgage than by sale, and that method
is not violative of tho intention of tho
trrantor of tho power, tho former modo of
raising tho monoy should bo preferred to
tho latter for tho obvious and sufficient
reason that it is for tho advantage of tho
cstato that it should bo adopted, and it is
within tho limits of tho power intended to
bo preferred. It would bo absurd, to say
the least of it. to adhere- so closolv to tho
literal terms of the grant of power as to I
necessitate a sacrifice of tho nronnrtv wli(n
by a reasonablo construction that result
could be avoided."
SHERIFF'S SALE ADVERTISED ON SUNDAY.
An injunction was refused to a judgment
debtor whoso real property was advertised
to be sold on execution in a Sunday paper.
He appealed the case (Shaw vs. Williams)
to the Supreme Court of Indiana, which decided
in his favor. Judge Elliott, in his
opinion, said : " A Shoriff can do no business
on Sunday unless it is of an extraordinary
character, and it cannot bo said that
the advertisement of an auotion sale is
anything more than a usual act on his
NUISANCE CREATED BY A RAILROAD COMPANY
The engine-house and repair shop of a
railroad company were so conducted that
tho congregation of a church built and occupied
before these buildings of tho company
wore put up and used wero injured in
their clothing and greatly discommoded in
their worship. In a Buit for damages a
judgment of $4,500 was recovered, and tho
cane, in error (Baltimoro & Ohio Railroad
Company vs. Fifth Baptist Church,)
was carried to the Supremo Court of
tho United Stafcs, which affirmed the judgment.
Mr. Justice Field, in the opinion,
snid: "That is a nuisance which annoys
and disturbs ono in tho possession of his
property, rendoring its ordinnry use or occupation
physically uncomfortable to him.
For such annoyanco and discomfort tho
courts of law will afford redress by giving
damages against tho wrongdoer, and when
tho cause of tho annoyanco and. discomfort
is continuous courts of equity will interfere
and restrain tho nuisance"

Cuioaqo, Juno 1. Tho knowlcdgo that
three. or four on 'Chango olerks of commission
houses, " yawpcrs," as thoy are familiarly
called, had recently thrown up tlioir
positions and became special partners in
other concerns suggested somo Inquiries to
a reporter into tho way on 'Change clerks
come into fortunes.
" How is it," was asked of a commission
man, " tlint a clerk who is paid no salary
at all by a firm can make SI 00,000 in five
years, or how can a man
"These fortunes are mado," was the reply,
"out of tin privileges of trading for
themselves n tno books of the concern.
When tho clerk who has this
privilege goes upon tho floor with a customer's
oider, and it is heavy enough to
affect tho market ono way or the other, Jie
naturally wants the trado for himself.
If it is a largo order to
buy, he first takes- a little 'jag'
for himself, nnd then proceeds
to fill the customer's instructions, The
market is naturally advanced more or less
by a very largo order to buy, and while tho
effect, of the buying is on nnd before tho
pmchnso is quite hlled, do.vn goes tho
clerk's little 'jag' to the customer, at the
top of the market. At Now York this
is called 'banking' on n customer,
and for applying it upon poor Dull' and
other rich Bostoninns Bill Hutcli;nsou was
oxpollcd ignominious! from tho Stock Exchange.

I'oUnuini; Ills Fellow Clerks.
Boston, June 1. Assistant Bookkeeper
Frank W. Remolds, employed by G. W.
& S. II. Miller, beer bottlers, 302 Atlantic
avenue, being jealous of his fellow clerks,
attempted to poison them with croton oil.
Shipper Win. A. Wilson, who was in pooi
health, took medicino from a bottlo nt the
storo at state I intervals daily. Reynolds
took tho bottle of medicine which Wilson
had loft in his dosk and pouring iu
it about half an ounco of
cioton oil, replaced it. Wilson on
that day picked up tho bottlo of
medicine, but boforo drinking of it, shook
it, which, by the way, ho had never before
done. By so doing ho mixed tho medicine
with tho oil, which had risen to tno top,
thereby saving his life, as ho would have
otherwiso drank tho croton oil pure. Instantly
ho was taken sick, and for a time
suffered terribly. Ho wns taken to the
City Hospital and relioved. Reynolds was
arrested and .accused of the crimo. He
confessed, saying that ho wanted to see
what effect tho oil would have on Wilson.
Reynolds has been in the employ ol
Miller Brothers about a year, and during
that time has made two attempts to poison
his fellow clerks. Last summer Daniel
Lawrcnco & Sons, liquor dealers, made a
present of several gallons of Medford rum
to Mr. Miller's clerks. Reynolds was sent
after the liquor, but before bringing it to
tho stcre ho put somo croton oil in it. The
clerks who drank of it became ill, but not
bo dangerously as in this last caso. The
only cauBO tho police can assign for Reynold's
attempt at poisoning is jealousy.
Ho is thought to bo an opium eater.
Wilson, though not fully recovered, is again

NO IRON LOCK-OUT.
The Expected Iron Strike Avoided
I'lttsburtf MamtfttctiirerM Yield
at Other at
Pittsburg, Pa., Juno 1. Tho confcrcnc
of tho iron manufocturors and Amalgamated
Association Committee yesterday af.
tornoon resulted in tho manufacturer!
signing last year's scalo of $5.50 per ton
for puddling. This action happily nvcrta
the strike and insures tho running of nl
tho mills in tho West for nt least ono year
longer. The manufacturers, who have
all along persisted that they would
not pay more than 55, and who were
supposed to havo a solid front, givo as a
reason for their unexpected action that
they had positivo information that o
number of Western" mills had mado arrangements
to continuo at tho old scnlo,
with tho condition that if tho manufacturers
wero successful tho workmen would
accept tho samo wages, and rather than
submit to seeing tlioir trado going to other
places, thoy decided to pay tho wages demanded
by tho Amalgamated Association.
Cleveland, O., Juno 1. From tho appearances
of things thcro will bo no
striko among tho iron workers of this
city, Over 800 men aro employed in tho
Union Rolling Mill, many of whom aro
members of tho Amalgamated Association.
Tho scalo will bo presented to this firm tomorrow
morning. Tho Troasurer of tho
company said that in all probability the
scalo would be si ncd.
Chicago, Juno 1. From interviews
-with the managers of tho loading iron
mills in and about this city, it appears inevitable
that all will closo down to-morrow,
owing to tho failuro of tho mill owners to
accede to the Pittsburg scale. Tho controversy
will not in nny way affect steel rail
mills, which will continuo thoir operations.
Tho managers of tho mills join in
asserting that the ndvantago rests with
them, as tho markot is inactivo and prices
only moderate, whilo tho employes were
only recently engaged in a long strike, from
tho effects of whioh thoy havo not yet recovered.
Wheeling, W. Va., June 1. It is now
definitely decided that there will be. no
lock-out in tho iron mills here. N. E.
Whittaker, President of tho Crescent Sheet
Iron Mill, signed the scale and his mill will
continuo at work without stoppage. News
of tho signing of the scale at Pittsburg was
received here with undisguised satisfaction
by the manufacturers nnd delight by tho
workmen, and this settled thu matter here.
The lucky solution of the difficulty at tho
eleventh hour onuses a general joy among
all classes of the community.
Louisville, Juno 1. There is no apparent
movement toward a strike by the iron
workers here, but'it is supposed the men
will follow the course pursued in other cities.
No excitement is reported, owing in a large
part to the fnct no groat number of men aro
engaged in iron working iu this city.
Younostown. 0 June 1. There is rejoicing
among the iron works, because work
will be continued to-morrow on the new
scnle, nltlio ich a suspension was expected.
All the mills will go on except two or
three, whoso stock is exhausted, and which
expect to resume at tho earliest opportunity.
Indianapolis, Juno 1. So fnr ns can bo
learned to-day, tho iron mills are running
as usual iu Indiana, but it is not known
how long they will continue.
Cincinnati, Juno 1. Tho anticipated
striko of the rolling mill occurcd at
5 o'clock, tho hour whon the change
from tho day to tho night force
occurs. Tho mill owners had refused to
sign the scalo of prices pwented, or to
consider any proposition whatever, and
relying upon the agreement of last fall.
Thcro was sonic effort yesterday for
a conference between tho mill owners
and operatives, but the former did not
encourage tho offort, and all that
was said and done wns informal. In
consequence of this refusal tho night force
decided not to go to work Inst night, and
tho mills wero declared closed.
The trouble originates with tho puddlcrs,
who are demanding the advance.
The work of tho other employes largely
dopends upon them, and thoy are of necessity
thrown out of work whether they favor
the striko or not.
Iranian Winn the Itacc Acnliiit Kennedy
Boston, Juno 1. Tho match raco with
single sculls between LMward Hanlan, of
Toronto, nnd John A. Kennedy, of Portland"
for $2,500 a side, took place this afternoon
at Point of. Pines, tho distance
being ' three miles with turn.
When tho men wero called
out a smoother course rarely ovor was seen
on lako or river. A start was mauo at
0:34. Konnody soon took a slight lead,
which he kept through tho first milo. Hanlan
keeping him well up to his work, and
it was a pretty fight for that distance.
Thcro wero fears of a foul, and tho indications
wero that both men wero going out of
thoir course. JIanlan was apparently
tho first to discover this, and thereby
gained several lengths. By
this timo tho Canadian had
headed Kennedy, and turned tho
stakeboat four or five lengths in advance.
Aftor tho first milo Hanlan evidently imagined
that he had tho raco in his own
hands, and aftor turning tho stakeboat occasionally
rcduocd his stroko to tho minimum
and rowed at caso, whilo
Kennedy kopt nearly tho samo
stroke throughout. Tho official timo
was: Hanlan, 19;04; Kennedy, 10:52;
showing Hanlan won by about twenty
lengths. About 2,500 poople witnessed tho
race. As the mon oamo from tho water
Hanlan was grooted with hearty choors,
and appeared as though returning from a
match spin rather than from a match race.

Washington, June 1. A powerful syndicate
is urging the Commissioner of Patents
to grant an application for a process to
regulato the temperaturo of lager beer,
but thus far thoy havo been unsuccessful.
Commissioner Marble's attention has been
called to the fact that to grant such a
