Washington, June 28. Tho executive
order consolidating forty-four Iutcrnal
Rovcnuo districts recently promulgated is
one of the most important steps toward tha
gradual abolition of tho Internal Rovenuo
service that has been mado for years. At
present there are ono huudrod and twenty-six
collection districts distributed through
the States and Territories, every Stnto and
Territory having at least ono oollootor. In
the original plan submitted for tho President's
consideration it was intanded to keep
tho collection districts iutnot in tho States
and Territories, but tho plan finally agreed
upon disregards States and Territorial
boundaries, so that a largor reduction was
really mado than originally contemplated.
Tho recommendation of Congress, or. at
least, of tho House, was that one-third tho
number should bo obliterated. The President
has increased the number and added
two more, so that instood of one-third of
120, which would bo forty-two, tho number
consolidated is forty-four, and ttiis has becu
done without incurring the slightest ill-will
or objection on tho part of Senators and
In consolidating tho Columbus and
districts in Ohio the collector of the
latter district was retained anil Mr. W. S.
Furay, for whoso appointment
Kiefcr worked so hard is loft out of the
list. In Indiana the chances noted aro
that tho old Republican politicians, Will C.
Cumbaok and General Jnmea C. Vcntch.
are out, and tho more recent appointees in
the other district) arc retained. It is said
that Commissioner Dudley, who oxpeots to
be tho nominee of the Republicans next
year for Governor, urged tho policy pursued
iu Indiana in making tho now deal.
In Michigan tho changes are satisfactory
to Senator Conger, while in Illinois thero

The Dilutions In Wool.
Boston, Juuo28. Tho temporary closing
of quito a number of large nnd importnnt
woollen mills in Now England within tho
past two weeks, on account of tho dullness
in tho trade, is tho oaugo of considerable
commont. At tho South, as in cotton,
mills of a high order aro
springing up, and ono concern, nt Columbus,
Georgia, is credited with turning out
somo of tho best first-class woolen goods in
tho country, and the raw material was
mostly raised in tho Stato. It is believed
that tho Southern States onn produce wool
uv wio cosi inai wortnern states

I a pound to raise tho " golden llocco," and

greater part, it will bo borno in mind, is

Manufacturing "Old Relics " to Older
A Lucrative Industry Old
Clock a Npcclnlty.
Boyxrtown, Pa., June 28. A Philadelphia
Press has been through
this (Berks) oounty, looking up the " rolio "
industry. During tho past few weeks he
has traveled through various sections of
Berks and adjoining counties, and iu one of
tho many little villages ho came acroes
an old cablnot maker, who wni
doing a novel and thriving business
in a quiet way. ne was turning out
" grandfathers' clocks," raaunfaoturlng
by hand thoso tall, clocks
that were in vogno a cerrtury ago, and
which are now boing bought up
as relics and sent to all part
of the country. Ills littib Bhop was just,
back of his house, and It was very evident
that tho honest old man had no idea that
IiIh wares were being used in a manner for
which they had never been intended, hi
the course of conversation he said:
" O, yes ; I am kept very busy. Thore is
a great demand for tho old-fashioned
clocks, and 1 can Bell all, I make All I
have to do is to niako tho cases, you know.
Tho man I send them to puts in tho works.
I have my own pat terns. It ii tho oyster
clock, the pattern of which was fiit cut
out in 1750. I dou't finish or polish the
cascK at all; they don't need to bo. I got
my walnut boards from Philadelphia nnd
Now York. I can turn out about two clocks
QUITE A 1'OrULAR DU8INE5?.
By inquiry from othor sources it was
learned that this old clock business is quite
populnr. Everybody wants one of the tall
clocks ,that formerly swung their
long pendulums In tho corners of old farm
houses all over Pennsylvania. Tho famous
song, "Grandfather's Clock," has causedjtho
time-keepers to be known as
" grandfather's clocks." Nearly all the
genuine old have long since
been bought in by those who want them as
rclioi. The demand being greater than the
supply, they aro being manufactured to
order in tho back country. The clocks arc
put up in tho old fashioned way; the cases
aro not polished or finished in uny
manner, and tho works are procured
" on East " nnd sent to this section for insertion.
JUST AS aOOD AS THOUGH IT WAS COLD.
Tho dials aro painted in the old-fashioned
manner, and the clock is turnod out
so ns to resomblo n time-piece 100, or more,
years old. It is then stood away in somo
'lark oorncr of a mouldly log houe, until
finally it is " accidentally discovered " by
the owner and dealer, who scuds it on to
New York or Philadelphia to bo sold as an
aged relic. It is also learned that quite a
number of straugcrs aro engaged in this
business of getting np ,l grandfathers'
clocks " to order. It la really given out as
un actual fact that a number of dealers have
placed these " new old docks M into auoient
log house, where public sales of
furniture had been aunounccd. They
would then start tlio etory that there was
a very ol 1 clock to be sold, which had been
intentionally kept off tho snlo bill, in order
to avoid competition in bidding, so that the
heirs could buy it iu cheap. In this way a
largo crowd is uttraotod to such sale, nnd
the olock Is sold for very high figures. The
purchasor takes it bonw, confidently believing
he has a genuine crticlc, ami he 1ms
never been told the truth about II Philadelphia
sharpers are said to he at tho bottom
of the fraud.
The works are oontnvctcd for from parties
in the Nnugntuck Valley, Conn., who huvo
no idea that their work is being used in a
cnternptiblo swindle. Of course there
are legitimate, boucet dealers, who buy aud
soil genuino old grandfathers' clocks,"
but the publio ought to know that not all
tho so-called old clocks in market, or that
are found in rickety, old
log houses, are the genuine article. Buying
an old clock Is as difficult a job as buy-in
i: a trotting horno on 'your own judgment.

BriAurottD, Juno 28. Although tho oil
market has boon comparatively steady,
yet thero is much In the situation to give
enoouragoment for higher prices in the
near future. An apparently
report has been circulated that, in
boring for salt at Mount Morris, Livingstone
county, New York, An oil-bearing
sand had been struck which gave promise
of being rich, has sinoo been learned that
thoro was no truth in tho report; thai tho
only sign of oil was a sand emitting very
poor gas, and that, so far as oil is con
cerned, tlio well Is a oompleto failure.
Another well, in the .Wollsville district,
of Allogheny county, N. Y., that of the
Empire Gas Company, on the York farm,
lot 85 which- was expected to bo a producer,
has been put through tho sand, and
found to bo dry. Tho last tost made with
an effort to oxtond the Cherry Grove field,
tho corner woll, on lot 008, has been
and found to be hopelossly dry. In

Tragedy In nn Iron 3I1II.
Chattanoooa, Tens., Juno 28. The special
sent to tho Chicago Times regarding
tho tragedy at tho Iron
Works, upon investigation, turns out to not
have oxaggcratod tho brutality of the case
in tho slightest. Rather the details aro
still moro horrible than at first reported.
Tho difficulty occurred between Lalayctte
Browder and Wm. Thomas, In which
tried to murder his antagonist by
burning him to death on a red-hot iron
Blab that was boing prepared for converts
ing Into nails. Tho slab was four foct long
and twelve inohes wido, and was of solid
bar Iron woldod together. The trouble
grow out of a friendly scufilo, in which tho
two parties engaged. Thomas, though a
emnllcr man, was getting the best of Browder
in tho scufllo, whioh, togethjr with the
taunts of tho bystanders and the ovident
satisfaction of Thomas, so enraged Browder
that he lost all control of hlrnsolf, and seeing
the red-hot slab, immediately, with the
strength of an infuriato madman, threw
his antagonist on the seething iron, holding
him thero till pulled away by friends.
When taken from tho slab Thomas presented
a sickening Bight. From his head
to his heels he was a mass of blisters, his
back uud legs boing almost roasted lo a
crisp. The witnesses on tho trial testified
that the appearance of tho unfortunate man
was most horriblo, and that a number of
persons wero compelled to leave
of the body to escapo fahmng.
It was with difficulty that Browder could
bo dragged orY the poor fellow, and
ho scorned determined to roast
him alive. Tho miuclcs of the shoulders
and tho tendons of tho legs are frightfully
burned, arid should tho wrotched mau recover,
which ia doubted, he will hardly recover
'hi msolf enough-to bo ablo to work at
his trade Browder was promptly arrested
by tho polioo authorities on a ohargo of

Thoro havo boon two taken out. Tho Commodore
of tlio yard, when ho heard of tho
first one, ordered it to bo taken to the ordnance
machine shop, emptied of tho powder,
oloaned and aexaroinod. It is mado of
light boiler iron in the shape of a huge
cylinder, about throe and a half feet in
diameter, nnd about tho tamo In length.
It contained about two barrels of coarse
gun ' powder, which was, fortunately,
wet at Uw time it was soooped out, The
copper 'wire attachments to be conneotcd
with nn oleotrlcal battery to oxplode it are
still intact. Thero arc two small holes in
tho iron caused by rust, which would not
havo been there had tho apparatus boon
made of conpor. After taking tho first
ono out and discovering that it was full of
wet powder, the workmen woro very par
ticular about how thoy h indlod tho second
until they were satisfied that thot powder
in this was also wet. Had oither of thom

A IMilliiwiu Scheme That Failed.
Chicago, Juno 2S. Some time ago the
Pullman Car Company contracted with tho
New York, West Shore & Buffalo Railroad
Company for tho manufacture and
delivery of five thousand box-cars, and
arranged for tho completion of ten cars a
day. After having completed a largo
and wishing to mnko a dolivery, an
effort was mado to get from the east-bound
lines a roduccd rato for hauling the cars
to Jersey City. The regular rate on empty "
cats at that timo was eight cents por mile;
and, although tho questiou of a reduction
wa3 pressed very hard, tho pooled lines
would not make any deyiation from regular
rates, as It was against tho rule. Falling
to get a reduction of tho rate, it is "
said an effort was made to induce shippers
to load these now ours with grain, as much
as fifteen dollars per car being reported
to haTo bcon offered as nn inducement,
but tlio roads having plenty of empty
cars nnd desiring to un) them,
clnimed that tholr oars must he used, and
the scheme of loading new cars to lessen
tho ospenso of carrying them eait failed.
At 8 cents per mile, tho cost of hauling
the empty curs to Jersey City would
amount to about $70 jnsr car, while a car
loaded with 20,000 pounds of grain, at 25
ccntd per hundred, would be taken lo tho
samo point for tO0. Had tiro Pullman company
succeeded in effecting suoh nn
as they dsdire.1, it would have
been very disastrous to the tonnugo showing
of tlio east bound lines for a fow weeks.
Thoro havo been soveral hundred of these
cars constructed, and they uro standing orr
tho traoks of a number of roads, about two
hundred being on ono line, ready and waiting
for'shipmenU The classification
on empty cars has now been ohanged,
reduoing tho rate 2 cents on all classes,
which makes tbe.preecDt rate on empty
box-cars 6 cents. This roductian will settle
the question, and cnablo tho Pullman
company to send about fivo hundred oars
forward to the Now York, West Shore &
Buffalo at onoo, at an oxponse about equal
to the carriago of an ordinary car load of
A Doom In Woman's Rights.
Boston, Juno 28. The validity of the
will of Mrs. Eliza F. Eddy, who was the
daughter of Francis Jackson, tho noted
abolitionist, has been confirmed by the
higest court, and with it comes $57,000 to
bo dividod botweon Susan B. Anthony and
Lucy Stone, tho wifo of Henry B. Blacknell.
Tho will provides strongly that Lucy's
husband shall have no intorost nor oontrol
in the $28,500 coming to her,
but that it shall be her separate
proporty, froo from any control by him ;
aud that " Susan and LucySshuU usosaid

now boom as it novor boomed before, and,
no doubt, Luoy will spond the monoy thus
fallen to her to the best advantage; but, it
is unnecessary to add, no portion of it will
bo used in "intluonoing legislators, for
Luoy isn't that kind of a woman. The
