Cincinnati, July 19. There 13 boing'
formulated ft scheme to make this city and
Hamilton county coextensive It may not
bo ready this winter for tho Legislature to
take hold of it and refer it to thoir able
committee on municipal corporations,
where through diverse ideas, opinions and
amendments it can bo molded into suitablo
shape for passage, but tho question is
bound to arise Bomctimo within a year or
so. I am not at liberty to givo anything
more than tho mere fact that such a project
is being talked about, and a general outline
of tho arguments that will be used to
support it. Tho projectors say that as far
as taxation is concorncd, the rate would bo
uniform instead of as now, two rates, one
for city ond tho othor for county purposes,
and in placo of nn incrcaso which
tho opponents of tho measuro will urge,
thero will bo in fact a decrease. All expenditures
relating to the country districts
would be mot out of consolidated funds, the
city deriving a benefit 0 increase in its
funds by adding to them tho of
tho proceeds of the tax duplicate which is
now used by tho county alone, and tho
county in a liko manner sharing equally in
tho projects of general improvements,
securing a moro perfect and wealtheir '
tem of roads, bridges, polico, educational
and other purposes, Fifteen incorporated
villages would bo annexed, thus lessening
considerably tho taxation required to keop
up separate governments. Tho police system
would of course bo increased, but not
to tho extent of expenditures for this purpose
under tho present system of separate
incorporate jurisdictions. Again, much, it
is urged would bo saved in school expenses,
all the schools of the county thus
coming under the caro of tho city
Board of Education. Further, a decreaso
of officials would follow in abolishing
tho City Treasurer, Comptroller, and Board
of Public Works, as well as tho Treasurers,
Auditors, Mayors and Councilmcn of the
several incorporated villagos in tho county.
Tho duties performed by theso officers
would bo transferred to tho county Treasurer,
Auditor and Cotnm.ssioners, the
Mayor of tho city and Board of Council-men.
Connected with this schemo it is
proposed to reduce the latter body to tho
smallest number consistent with tho requirements
and responsibilities of municipal
legislation. Another featuro insisted
upon is that in place of the extra expense
incurred in keeping up two infir" aries a
consolidation would be effected under one
direction that of tho city. This is but an
outlino of tho proposition, but a
grand howl will bo raised when the
matter I3 ndvanccd sufficiently for
public crlticiim. It will ' be presented
by the opposition that none of
the means for lessening taxation under the
project can bo realized; that the old system
of two and county is
tho best, and to ohango as proposed, would
entail oxpenso and indebtedness of burdensome
amount ; that tho country districts
would in no wise bo benefited since their
intorests would merely bo neglected for
those of tho city proper. But, notwithstanding
this view tho scheme will come
to the public for discussion and be
eventually accomplished. 9
Big corporations ore not always powerful.
Ton years ago tho Cincinnati Fertilizing
Company, tho backbone of which
was in abundant capital furnished by
several gentlemen who had the inside of
local finnnco and privileges, obtainod a
contract from tho city very favorable to it-Belf.
This contract involved tho removal
of all dead animals and offal suitable for
tho company's purpose from the city
limits, tho city paying thcrcforo 315,000
per year. Tho company utilised tho carcasses
and oifnl in tho manufacturing of
fertilizers, on which a handsome profit accrued,
in addition to tho sum paid by the
city. As a conseqnence tlio company
waxed fat, saucy and exacting, insisting
upon its right to havo the contract renewed
at tho old rate, but upon tho Board of Public
Works advertising for bids for
dead animals and offal for tho next ten
years, it was found that several companies
would do the work from to
one-fifth less than it had been dono heretofore
Indoed, if it camo to tho point, one
or two companies outside tho city offored
to do the service gratuitously, but tho old
company reorganized and renamed, got the
contract on its bid of boing paid $2,500 per
year. In tho meantime tho company's
factory, which for years had boen located
at Dcllii, sovon or eight miles down the
river, and suffered tho anathemas of everybody
in tho neighborhood on account of its
nausoatlng odors, was removed
to Spring Grovo avonue, but three
miles from tho heart of the1 city. This occurred
about a year ago and when the
early spring camo on and tho factory sent
forth its horrible aroma the citizons within
a milo of tho locality, and they included
many who occupy some of tho moBt attractive
and luxurious houses in the city.aroso in
their wrath and tho Dessicating Company's
factory was indicted as a nuisanco. Si Keck,
Prosident of the company, Baid $100,000
would be used in litigation beforo the
factory would move, but it looms ho and
tho directors havo changed their minds
since so more doad animals are bollod on
Spring Grove, The company have gone
baok to Delhi. This is one instance whore
a powerful corporation got tho worst of it
in a tussol with tho sufforing citizens.

FATTIER CORRIGAN'S IDEAS.
A Iloolt .Tlint the Cntliollc Author!
ties Do Not Endorse. '
New York, July 18. Tho Rev. Patrick
Corrigan, pastor of the Oatholio Church of
Our Lady of Grace, Hoboken, has written
a pamphlot of forty-five pago. on "Episcopal
Nominations," which has been condemned
by Bishop Wiggor of his diocese,
who ordered the suppression of tho edition.
The publishers, however, had alroady '
issued about COO copies, part of which aro
, in circulation. Fathor Corrigan is pastor
of what is perhiipa tho largest J
tion in the United States. It is said thati
from 9,000 to 10,000 persons attend his '
church. The pamphlot is addressed to the
priests of the United States, and bsglns
with tho following statement:
" Tho best interests of tho Church in tho '
United States requiro that the priests, or a '
certain qualified number of them, should
havo tho power of nominating the Bishops. I
Tho subject is indeed a delicate ono," 1
tho writer says, " but wo can hardly ex-
pect the Bishops themsolves to tako the ,
initiative. I simply undcrtako to bow tho 1
eced. Tho raoro preliminary step may
easily bo loiioweu, ir necessary, by a
proper organization, tho branchos of which
will extend to ovcry diocese, in ordor to obtain
tho sentiment of all tho Bishops and
priests of tho land. Tho whole matter
rests with tho Bishops, for it is certain that
Rome will grant this power to tho priests if
the Bishops think it for tho best intorests of
tho Churoh of this country."
Tho author describes tho condition of tho
Church in Italy, 'Franco, and Spain, and
adds: "Tho very Popo himself does not
dnro to appear on the streets of Home for
fear of losing his lifo, nor docs ho dare to
lcavo Italy lest tho Government should try
to procure a man who would be willing to
play tlio part of Popo in Italy."
Writing of the defects of tho present system,
the Rov. Mr. t'orrigtm calls attention
to tho fact that there is not a solitary representative
of tho Amcricnn Church in tho
city of Homo nor a rcpicsentativo from
Homo in tho United States, and that the
very Bishops of the American Church are
dependent on the enterprise of a pious lady
convert at Homo for the first authentic information
of tho appointment of tho Bishops
of this country.
"Yes, the pamphlet Ihih been discountenanced
by tho Bishops," said tho Hcv. Mr.
"On what grounds?"
"Tlint I am wrong on tho questions of the
Bishop, the schools and the finances. But
a very small part of the edition of 3,000
copies had been issued when its publication
was stopped by my order."
. "Do you preach these doctrines from
1 have dono so. But as tho matter
Ht mnl s at present I do not fool at liberty to
convcrso on tho subject."

Mr. Kean, of Preston, Kcan & Co.,

"but I think ho is penitent, and will

that is hardly enough to pay tho expenses

New York, July 19. Somo time ago an
agreement was ontercd into between
Messrs. Al Smithand II. J. Rice, acting
on behalf of Sullivan and Slado, for an
encountor with tho gloves, to tako place at
Madison Squuro Gardon. This fell through,
owing to the rent of tho building having
been doubled and Rico declining to agroo
to tho payment of $1,000. Mace now
states that Itico was not aoting with any
authority in tho matter and that he is not
willing to allow Blade to meot any one
unloss tho rocoipts are shared equally.
Sullivan's priuoipal supporter holds the
key to the situation, and &o informed a
that it was no uso of Mace or say
one else attempting to got better terms for
a match with Sullivan than 36 per cent, of
tho rooeipts. As there is no possibility of
making a match with Sullivan on any
terms othor than those stated Maco will
have to agroo to them if Slado is to meet
the champion. Mace says ho will meet
Mitoholl, but there is nothing in that offer,
as the latter is now in California,

Nnw York, July 19. At the regular
weekly mooting of tho executive commit-too
of tho directors of tho Wcstorn Union
Telegraph Compauy, tho following was
Resolved, That a committee, consisting
of ox-Governor Cornell, J. W. Clendenin
nnd John T. Terry bo appointed to inquire
into tho complaints of irregularities of
compensation and the condition of servlco
of omploycs of this company, if any, and
report to this committee.
O110 of the gentleman who attended tho
meeting says tho sontiment unanimously
in support of the action of General
in his reception of the committee who
called on him to present tho memorial on
Monday lust, and that his lotler to Colonel
dowry, of Chicago, outlining tho
position and resources of the company
and culling attention to tho exorbitant
demands of that committeo, was likewise
discussed and warmly approved. The
meeting did not tako cognizance, in fact,
of that petition, since it vtas held tlint
whatovor complaints cmployos of tho company
might have to make must bo mado
directly by themselves to tho compnny's
officers. Tho is not cm-powered
except to make a report next
week, on Wednesday, when tho full committee
meets again. Tho composition of
tho comniictoc, howovor, is of some interest,
as bearing on the temper of the
mooting and its future action. Clondeniu,
ono of the mombcrs, is President of the
Acadia Coal Company, which has extensivo
mines in Pictou, Nova Scotia. Tho minors
thoro havo been a turbulrtit community
and havo frequently indulgod in strikes.
Clendenin haB always managed these
crises, and never yielded to the demands
mado through the medium of a
strike. Ex-Governor Cornell and Torry
aro also said to bo opposed to strikes as a
means of settling wage difficulties. The
Whoatstouo is a system of rapid transmission
of messages and nows. It has been in
use for ninny years in England, but is a
comparatively new thig in this country.
Tho instrument will do nearly ten times
tho work that can bo dono over an ordinary
wire. Should tlio Wheatstono operators remain
and the other operators striko, tlio
telegraph compauy would have a considerable
udvantago through tho uso of
this system. The members of the
Brotherhood claim that nearly
all the Whcatstoue men are willing to go
out, while the otiicors of tho company say
that not moro than two or three of the
uiueteen local employes and not a large
number of thoso olbowhcro will consent to
Ono of the directors of tho WoHtern
Union told a roporicr that arrangements
had been perfected by which, in cuso of a
strike, English operators would come on
from the other sido. This story was
reported to Mr. Kugeno J. O Connor,
one of the committeo tli.it waited on General
Clm'iii.a.nd, O., July 19. The Western )
Uuion operators in this city uuinbor sixty- 1
five, while there urc iU members ot tlio
Telegrapher's league in tho city and vicinity.
They are ready to take thoir coats and
leave the otlico the moment the striko is
ordered. The operators huvo been looking
all day for tho ordor to come All of tho
Western Union men will go out ou tho

PiTTsiano. July 18. All day tho vicinity
of tho Western Union offico, on Fifth avenue,
was thronged with operators and curiosity
60oker3, and at tho noon hour, when
it was expected that the operators would
come out, tlio crowd was so great'that for a
time the stroet was blockaded. A great
deal of dissatisfaction is oxprcssod among
members of the Brotherhood that the striko
was not inaugurated.
