Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 23. After a suspension
since the 1st of July, work has
been resumed in nil the Hint-glass factories
of this vicinity. This is is nn evidence
that n satisfactory arrangement
soncerning wages has been made, and that
for another year tliero will be no trouble
in this branch of the trade. The hollow-ware
and window-glass factories are still
idle, however, and the indications are that
a protracted lock-out will be inaugurated
in these trades next month, instead of a
resumption of work. Both sides are trying
to keep everything to themselves, but
it is known that the manufacturers insist
on a heavy reduction in wages, and that
the workmen refuse to accept any reduction.

seceded from the Knights of Labor. The
getherers will meet next Sunday afternoon
and with their membership, 100, withdraw
from the Knigths of Labor, ami after the

reason assigned for the withdrawal is that
the Knights of Labor have been of no
use to the glas3workers. In a strike of
twenty-two months, beginning in 1877, the
900 pressors and chimney-men only got
400 from the organization. Three months
beforo the inauguration of the strike the
American Flint Glass Association was
formed, with eighteen assemblies, and in
that time the strikers recieved $18,000.

THE IOWA TRAGEDY.
Pnbllo Sympathy Entirely with the
Waterloo, Iowa, Aug. 23. Tito excitement
over tho shooting of tho negro
Hereon by Nathan Codner, father of the
outraged girl, has about subsided, and
public sympathy seems to be entirely in
the lattcr's favor. Codner is in jail in this
city, but is in an excited stato of mind,
almost bordering upon insanity, and can
not talk coherently on tho nubfeet.
The bullet struck Hereon about an inch to
the left of tho spinnl column, between tho
fourth and fifth dorsal vertebra:. Tho
coroner's jury found a verdict in accordance
with the facts, and Codner was held
on tho cproner's warrant. Since tho
shooting it has been developed that Codner
did not know tho full extent of tho
injury done his daughter until a short
time "beforo the shooting. Ho was not
allowed in the court-room during
the latter part of tho taking ot
tho testimony, but was present during
tho argument, and it was then made
known to him that Hereon had said before
ho left Parkersburg that he was going
to Cedar Falls to make a "mash" on
Melissa Codner, and that after he reached
Parkersburg and beforo ho was arrested he
made his boasts that ho had succeeded in
robbing her of her virtue, but said that
ho had to work hard before ho accomplished
his purpose. A letter was
also produced written to Sarah Codner by
George stating that she must get some
other girl if she could not get Melissa.
Hereon had hitherto borne a bad reputation.

Baltimore, Aug. 23. Quito a sensation
was occasioned when it became hnowii
that an attempt had been made by a
voune widow well connected to extort '
!?300 from John Henry Kccnc, a prominent
lawyer and a gentleman of large
means. A few weeks ago tho young woman,
who is a daughter of John Cole, a
retired merchant, called at Keene's ollice
and secured his services to endeavot
to obtain a share of her late
husband's estate, which she alleges
is kept from her by her husband'
children by a former wife. Keeno had
several interviews with her, but always in
the presence of hi law student. A few
days ago she called and demand $500, and
remarked: "If ,ou don't give me the
money I- a scandal." Keene
delayed matters until tho next day, and in
the meantime informed the police of the
case. Detectives were detailed at KeeneV
ollice, and when the young woman
called for the money they ' over
heard the conversation, and, al
the proper time appeared, made
ku wii, and thus blocked the game
Keene refused to prosecute, and thus the
woman escaped punishment. Slicis young
and handsome, ami, the police say, hat
been sucees.ifttl in other instances. The
affair has been suppressed in tho papers
here, and only became known by accident.

this county, has just been explained. Last
spring lie left for the West, supplied with
abundant funds by his father, Jacob
Rothermcl, who is pne of the wealthiest
farmers in Perry township. The young
man visited various parts of the West,
nnd after sojourning several months in
Iowa became sick with fever. While in a
half delirious state he attempted to return
home, and proceeded as far as Chicago.
Hire he got on the wrong train tuul w.is
carried into the wilds of Michigan. lie
lost his ticket and money in the cars at a
point more than a hundred miles north o!
Chicago, and was put oil' the ears hy the
conductor. He remained in the pine
forest for seven dayb before he was able to
elleet his way to a settlement, having meanwhile
satisfied his hunger with roots and
berries. His clothing was torn hy coining in
contact with brambles and briers, and he
was a pitiable object. Having escaped
from the forest ho undertook to walk
home, and tramped across the countrvin
this forlorn condition until he finally arrived
iu Venango county this State,
broken down in health and spirits
lis clothing was a mass of rags, his feet
were sore and painful, and he was partially
demented by reason of his sufferings,
lie was committed by a magistrate to the
almshouse, where ho received medical
treatment. After regaining sufficient
strength ho last Friday wrote to his father,
stating his whereabouts, and requesting
that 30 be sent him to enable him to return
home. The father instead straightway
sent another son, who arrived on
Sunday at the almshouse, and there was a
happy meeting between the brothers. The
long-lost son, who was mourned as dead
on account of his trunk having been received
soon after it was expressed fron
Chicago and his son having failed to appear,
is now at homo with his parents,

Sturgeon Hay, Vis., Aug., 23. The
quiet little village of Bay View, just
across the bay, is at the mercy of a gang
of thieves who are prowling about back
yards during the still hours of tho night.
i'hey have either entered or attempted to
enter nearly every house iu town, but us
far as known they have not succeeded in
carrying anything away. Thursday a
number of the citizens formed themselves
into a vigilance committee and during tho
night secreted themselves in various
places with a view ot capturing tho rascals
if possible. About midnight several
suspicious characters were seen prowling
about tho giounds and residence of Hon.
Joseph Hani-'. The signal agreed upon
by the citizens was given, but tho fellows
tucceeded in making good their escap.i in
the woods close by. They were ordered to
stop, and paying 'no attention to the command
several shots were tired at their retreating
forms. It is thought that there

New York, Aug. 23. Johnannes Wiig,
a Norwegian, just arrived here in the
guise of an immigrant, was before United
States Stntes Commissioner Deuel charged
by Acting Consul General Rawn, ol
Sweden, with being a fugitive from justice.
Wiig arrived here on tho steaiuei
Alaska, and was arrested by Deputy Marshal
Bernhard upon a cablo description.
For certain prudential reasons no mention
was made of Wiig's arrest. He was confidential
clerk and cashier of tho mercantile
house of W. Werke, in Ringsncker,
Hedciuarken, Norway. He is charged
with forging paner totho amount of 5,000
crowns on the Bank of Lillehammer, and
also with forging his employer's name to
two surety bonds, ono for 2,000 crowns and
the other for 1,000 crowns. Somo of the
forged paper was found in his poscssion.
Wiig eon teases his crinio and will probably

New York, Aug. 23. Preparations for
an unusually good business arc making by
oyster growers, dealers and shippers. Examinations
of all the oyster beds along
the north and south shores- of Long Island
show, it is said, that the crop will bo
uncommonly large, and that the oysters
will bo better qualfty than for many seasons
past. Oysters which havo been taken
up appear to have grown twice as much as
those inspected at this timo last year, and
they nro plump and solid. The demand
for Shrewsburys has already begun. Tho
Blue Points, which were n failure last
year, promise to be fine and abundant
this year. In Rockaway Bay many oyster
beds have been destroyed by sludge acid
from tho rendering .factories on Barren
Island, and the owners of oyster beds in
Hempstead Harbor say that'inany of tho
beds in those waters have been destroyed
by tho refuse from the starch factory" at
Glen Cove. Tho prospect for tho export
trade is better than for many years. Largo

Again In Trouble.
Washington, Aug. 23. Jenkins Fitzgerald,
the notorious pension sharp, has
again been disbarred at the pension office.
The trouble this timo was a too ingenious
device for tho collection of illegal fees.
After getting all he legally could out of
his clients, he would send them formidable
looking packages with a " C. O. D."
charge of 10 and express fees. The pensioner
would supposo that the package
contained his money, and pay the amount
demanded,, nnd find nothing inside except
a dunning letter. Fitzgerald seems to
have done this ona considerable scale for
numerous complaints have come in. When
hauled up for his performances the fellow
had the effrontery to insist that it was a
legitimato resource. It was not so regarded
at tho pension ofllce, and he has
once more been debarred.

Euik, Pa., Aug. 23. Tho excitement
occasioned by the attempted suicide of the
wife of the Kev. H.'M. Mover, of Union,
has been intesified by reports that the act
was not committediuider religious frenzy,as
given out by her husland,but that she had

after her mother's deatli it should bo used
in charities or tho founding an art gallery
in Chicago. Mrs. Newberry refused to
qualify under the will, and claimed the
estate as heir-at-law. The Circuit Court,
on the chancery side, has decided that no
trust could bo imposed upon the mother's
estate so far as the charities clause is concerned,
as it was too indefinite, but if the
case was tried at law the art gallery clauso
might be enforced owing to th failure of
Mrs. Newberry to accept under the will.

Knrope llelleT that Another Fran-co-German
War In Threatened.
London, Aug. 23. The Tipies correspondent
at Hong Kong, referring to tho
movement of the French in Tuiiqtiin, says
the enemy were mainly composed of
Chinesu armed with Reiningjon rifles.
General Bouet commanded the left column
of the French troopi. It is believed tho
enemy's loss was small. The French doctors
complain of want of medicine and
stoics. 1 lie operations of the French have
been stopped for t he present, the number
of troops being nsutlicient to attack
unci Bacninh, which are the strongest
positions in the delta. The replnteof tho
French disheartened them and encouraged
the enemy. Four thousand native Christians
are b.'ing armed.
The Standard's correspondent at Hanoi
adds: It is generally admitted that tho
French will require a force of 10,000 men
to be able to cope with the enemy successfully.
The number of gunboats is also
inadequate. Five hundred coolies who
accompanied the French column as carriers
lied at the first shot. It is stated tho
enemy has entrenchments, one behind tho
other for tho whole twenty-five miles between
Hanoi and Sontay, but it is thought
tho floods havo destroyed many.
The black flags have been strongly re-enforced
from Yun Man. No Anameso
participates in the fighting.
The Times says the capture of Hal
Duong is of some importance, as it gives
the French complete command ot tho
Songehi Canal, which is the most convenient
approach to Hanoi.
London, Aug. 23. Tho Times commenting
on the Berlin North German Gazette's
article referring to tho attacks of
the French iournals cm Germany, and de
claring that France alone threatens tho
peace of Europe, says the irritation shown
by the latter paper can not be explained
by tlie reason assigned, as tliol' rencn press
upon the whole has been very moderate in
regard to Germnny.
The article is rather an expression of
general impatience at the conduct of tho
French, and ought to convince them that
their expeditions in various parts of the
world do not add in the smallest degree
to their influence in Europe.
The article of tho North German Gazette
startled Paris, alarmed Europe, and causes
prices on the Bourses of Paris, Vienna
and Berlin to fall.
j The press everywhere express surprise
as the Gazette's attack on France, and
wonder as to what its object is. FVench
papers repeat the charges contained in the
article, and intimate that France is better
prepared now to say that Bismarck is
becking a pretext for a quarrel or for the
imposition of fresh army burdens. The
Austrian press asks if the article means

NewYoiuc, Aug. 23. It is estimated
that tho pickle crop of Westchester county
nmounts to 100,000,000 pickles annually.
Pickles from Westchester command a hotter
