The "Iron Aye" publishes a table show
ing that since the close of 1S94 Bessemer
pig has advanced from less than $10 a
ton to nearly $14.50, and steel billets
from $15 or less to S21.50. Wire nails
have gone up from 95 cents to $2.05, and
cut nails from 75 cents to 51.80. Propor
tional advances are reported in other
iron and steel products. No wonder the
manufacturers are talking of a "boom."
The Jit. Olivet Tribune-Democrat, a
Republican paper, places the attendance
at the recent Republican pic-nic at Blue
Licks at 1,000 people, a good part of
whom were ladies. The Carlisle Mer
cury places the crowd at 1,200, and a good
Republican of this city says there were
not over 1,500 people present. The local
correspondent of the Cincinnati Com
mercial Gazette sent his paper a dispatch
placing the crowd at 6,000. It's a cold
day when some Republican correspond
ents can't get up a big crowd at all g. o. p.
California is the
Union to adopt the
first State in the
Swiss practico of
drawing fourteen jurors, two more than
the usual number. They sit on the trial
of a case, but take no part in making up
a verdict unless one of the jurors be dis
abled by sickness. It will be used lor
the first time in California in the trial of
Theodore Durant charged with the
church belfry murder. This innovation
has worked well in Switzerland and there
is no reason why it will not here. It
might, at times, prevent a miscarriage of
justice, as an exchange pertinently re
marks. Mucu of the former labor ot carpenters,
brickmakers and furniture makers is now
performed by machinery, but the census
shows a large increase of workers in all
these trades. Between the years I860
and 1S90 the number of carpenters in the
United States increased from 53,547 to
140,021, and their average annual earn
ings from $459 to $075. The brickmakers
in 18S0 were 50,032, and in 1890 109,151,
with an advance in individual annual
income of over 20 per cent. In furniture,
the workers increased from 55,464 to
92,054, and the annual average earnjngs
from $453 to $527. If these figures are
correct, and their accuracy has not been
questioned, the introduction of labor
saving machinery is a decided advantage
to all concerned.
KNIGHTS RED HOT,
Maysville Commandery Very Shabbily
Treated by the Big Pour and
0. and O.
The Maysville Knights Templar, as
escort for Deputy Grand Master Sir War
ren LaRue Thomas and Grand Com
mander Sir Samuel E. Stone, made special
contracts for the finest quarters in Bos
ton and the best Pullman or Wagner
vestibuled sleepers that could be had.
The C. and O. and the Big Four were
to furnish sleepeis and a first-class bag
gage car, and there was no limit as to
price. You can imagine what a red hot
lot of Templars there were Thursday
evening when only one sleeper arrived,
and it an oldone, not vestibuled. It was the
'Alabama," and looked like it had been
made out of the old Confederate war ves
sel of the same name. The baggage car
was also second class, but strong as to
Pa3t Commanders Wall and Robinson
at once wired Mr. C. B. Ryan, of the C,
and 0.,and Mr. Ed. McCormick, of the Big
Four, with. whom the contract had been
made, that unless first-class sleepers and
baggage car were sent at once, tho Com
mandery would go by another road, or
l emain at home.
Messrs. Ryan and McCormick immedi
ately seht a sleeper accordingjto contract,
but claimed they had no other baggage
car. The Templars went to Cincinnati
yesterday, but said if they were not furn
ished with anothor first-class sleeper they
would cancel their contract and go by tho
Erie or some other road.

THE STILLWEliL TRAGEDY,
T1i7.TTAnrtitt Paarnil n. TWnh Whtltt "Ha
ing Conveyed to Jail at
Hannibal, Mo., August 19. Deputy
Sheriff Wachendorfer, who assisted
Sheriff Pratt in conveying Dr. and Mrs.
Hearno to-jail at Palmyra, has returned
to the city. He reports that tho doctor
was very apprehensive of a mob, and
was particularly anxious to know if tho
officers wero well armed after they had
proceeded on their way. Sheriff Pratt
assured the nervous prisoner that there
was no danger.
"But," said the officer, "in case wo are
attacked you may depend upon my dy
ing in your defense."
The doctor was very talkative after
this reassuring remark from tho Sheriff
during tho remainder of tho trip. He
thought tho grand jury had been con
trolled largely by public sentiment in
returning the indictment, and felt sure of
an acquittal, but he never once expressed
any concern about his wife. In conver
sation, however, with the Republic rep
resentative a few daya ago, when the
possibility of Mrs. Hearne alone being
indicted was suggested, he remarked :
"I hope they will not do that. I
would much prefer being indicted my
self. I am stronger and can better stand
tho hardships of jail life." '
During tho trip to Palmyra the doctor
talked freely about his own chances of
escape. Mrs. Hearne was silent. She
talked very little, only answering an
occasional question. Tho crowd at the
jail again made the doctor apprehensive
of mob violence. Tho officers quieted
him by assuring him that peoplo had
been attracted merely through curiosity.
These matters gave Mrs. Hearne no con
cern. She is a woman of iron nerve, and
was evidently amused at her husband's
The doctor was subjected to trial by tho
Kangaroo Court, composed of fellow-prisoners.
The charge was : "Breaking into
jail." John Nelson, who is under death
sentence, officiated as Judge. The doctor
was found guilty and fined $1, which was
paid and as promptly invested in tobacco
for the common use of tho prisoners.
The impression has been prevalent
that the doctor and wife are entirely out
of funds. They received about $40,000
from the Stillwell estate, and the doctor
also had considerable property, which
ho converted into money. It has all,
according to rumor, disappeared, save
the amount invested in a homo in San
Diego, Cal. R. H. Stillwell is authority
tor tne statement mat tuis property is
worth about $10,000 and is in Mrs.
Tho doctor, before leaving Hannibal,
inquired particularly of Deputy Wachen
dorfer as to spare room in Sheriff Pratt's
residence, being confident that he and
his wife would be given quarters outside
the jail proper. This idea was quickly
dispelled when he was ushered into one
of the iron cages and introduced to his
two cellmates. He then inquired as to
ice water, bath-room and jail barber.
These questions greatly amused the offi
cer. A little incidentiuMrs. Hearne'a career
is related. When she was beautiful
Fannie Anderson she met the wealthy
pork packer from Hannibal at the mar
riage of Will Stillwell, near Maysville,
Ky. Here tho courtship began. The old
gentleman remained in Kentucky several
weeks, and before his return to his Mis
souri home had secured her consent to
become his wife. After arriving homo
and giving the matter moro serious con
sideration, he concluded that he was
about to take an unwise step, taking into
consideration the disparity in their ages.
He weighed the matter well and then
wrote her, asking to bo released from
tho engagement. She, it is said, an

Col. Nat C. Drvden arrived at 3 o'clock
from St. Louis, and an hour later, in
company with Colonol R. E. Anderson,
