International Court of Arbitration.
Mr. Editok: On the afternoon of
April 23rd., the Convention seeking to
secure an International Court of Arbi
tration met in Metzerott Hall, Wash
ington City, and received the report of
tho Committee on Resolutions, which
after discussion and amendment was
adopted. It was substaneially as fol
lows: "This National conference of Ameri
can citizens assembled at Washington,
April 22, 1S00, to promote international
arbitration, profoundly convinced that
experience has shown that war, as a
method of determining disputes be
tween nations, is oppressive in its op
eration, uncertain and unequal in its
results, and productive of immense
evils, and that the spirit and humanity
of the age, as well as the pieceptsof
religion, require the adoption of every
practicable means for the establish
ment of reason and justice between
nations, and considering that the people
of the United States and the people of
Great liritian, bound together by ties
of a common language and literature,
of like political and legal institutions
and of many mutual interests, and ani
mated by a spirit of devotion to
law and justice, have, on many
occasions, by recourse to peaceful and
friendly arbitration, manifested their
just desire to substitute reason for force
in the -settlement of their differences,
and to establish a reign of peace among
nations; that the common sense and
enlightened public opinion of both
nations js utterly averse to any further
' ,war between themj that the same good
sense, reenforced by common principles,
of humanity, religion, and justice, re
quires the adoption of a permanent
method for the peaceful adjustment of
international controversies, which
method shall not only provide for the
uniform application of principles of
law and justice in the settlement of
their own differences, but shall also by
its example and its results promote the
peace and progress of all peoples, does
hereby adopt the following resolutions:
1. That in the judgment of this con
ference, religion, humanity and justice,
as well as tho material interests of
civilized society, demand the Immediate
establishment between the United
States and treat Britian of a perma
nent system of arbitration, and that
such a system be as far as possible ex
tended to embrace other civilized na
tions. 2. That it is earnestly recommended
to our government, so soon as it is as
sured of a corresponding disposition on
the part of the British government, to
negotiate a treaty providing for the
widest practicable application of the
i' method of arbitration to international
3. That a committee of this confer
ence be appointed to prepare and pre
sent to the President of the United
States a memorial respectfully urging
the taking of such steps on the part of
the United States as will best conduce
to the end in view."
We secured, through the aid of Ex
Senator Edmunds, Carl Schurz, Mr.
.. Graham, of Virginia and others the
last sentence of tho flrsv resolution,
seeking to extend such a system beyond
GreVt liritian to other civilized nations.
On tho eame afternoon, In tho House
of Representatives, Mr. Pearson, of
Nortli Carolina, introduced a resolution
authorizing the President to invito tho
nations of tho world to appoint dele
gates to an international conference,
to be hold at such time and placo as
may be agreed upon, for tho purposo of
establishing a permanent international
court of arbitration for the final settle
ment of all such matters of disputo as
the nations participating In tho con
ference may define and agree to submit
to arbitration. Tho President js re
quested to communicate to Congre'ss tho
correspondence which may be Inter
changed on this subject.

IN THEOIL FIELDS.
The Thompson Oil Company's well
at Cutler wns drilled in Tuesday and Is
a small producer, being estimated from
S to 15 barrels.
Sistersyille. W. Va.. April 2S. Yes
terday afternoon the owners of tho
Lucy Dye well, across the river, on Dog
Skin, put in a largo shot, which itn
medUteJy made a splendid showing.
This well has been gradually decreas
ing for some time, and now that it has
been shot it looks as if it was good for
20 or 30 barrels.
The splendid showing of tho Carter
Oil Company's well on the E. C. Free
land farm, out on Sancho, has justified
the belief that this territory was one
in which oil could be produced. This
well Is now giving to its owners, on a
fair estimate, 20 barrels an hour, and
bids fair to sustain its present flow.
Since this well has been drilled in,
over 200 acres of land have been In
creased to a fine price. Messrs. Lock,
Slexaker and others are the leasees, Qf
the adjoining farms, and they have
been offered a large bonus for their
leases, but have refused. It is reported
that they have made several locations,
and will commence putting up rigs for
as many wells.
The well which belongs to Bunnell
& Work, on the Schanwrecker farm, in
the St Mary's field Js decreasing and
has dwindled down to 40 barrels, with
the probability of its continued flow at
Franchet Bros.' well on the Reynolds
farm, in the St Mary's field, came in
today at S o'clock and is good for SO
The Victor Oil Company received, at
Ben's run, today, a car load of pipe
which they will put In their well on
the Smith & Gibbons farm, out near
O. B. Ramey vt ent up to see how his
well near the Glendale mines, in Mar
shall county, is prospering.
The Shay well No. 2, on Indian
creek, which was reported on top of
the sand came in today, and Mr. Shay
reports it good for 35 barrels a day.
They will erect the necessary tankage
and case the well as soon as the ma
terial can be gotten on the ground.
Burning Springs, W. Va., April 2S.
Three good producers were made by
shooting the wells of O'Brien, Wolf
No. 3, and Wirt and Roberts Bros. No.
The Sklnnen well is now flowing
over 30 barrels a day.
The Russell & Skinnen No. 2, on the
Oil Track, has ceased flowing, and is
Gracy No. 3, owned by Lawrence &
Kennedy, is pumping 35 barrels a da'.
Just east of this place a company of
Pittsburgers have leased George A.
Woods' farm, and will commence drill
ing at once.

McKlnley to thoForo.
There are always plenty of people
looking for weak points in tho record
and standing of a conspicuous leader.
Ex-Governor McKlnley is now paying
the penalty of being the leading candi
date for the Republican nomination for
President, with a prospect of success
brilliant enough to make all opponents
green with envy. Ho is attacked on
account of his mild manners in politics,
and because he did not conduct him
self with a flourish us chief executive
of Ohio. Fault is found with the
money plank of the Ohio platform,
which he is said to have written, and
he is frequently notified that he'earf
not depend on the protection theory to
carry him through without specifically
defining himself on silver. Then there
are people who think that because Ma
jor McKlnley is a native of this state,
growing up unobtrusively and modest
ly entering upon the fight of life, a
common soldier boy at 17 years of age;
the Captain of a volunteer company
and not a great General when the con
flict closed, afterward an every-day
lawyer and Prosecuting Attorney in
his county, and a local politician who
broke Into Congress, It is absurdto
talk about making him President; that
he is getting too ambitious for his be
ginnings and his surroundings.
Notwithstanding all this Major Mc
Klnley is forging ahead splendidly. lie
is an original Ohio man, and only a
small proportion of Ohio people are so
narrow as not to bo appreciatlyo of
home talent and worth. The Republi
cans of other states of the Union have
taught their Buckeye friends a lesson.
McKlnley is not a mere local candidate
or "favorite son" of Ohio. This state
did not lead In bringing him out for
the Presidency. There Is no other can
didate who has such general support
in nearly all sections of tho country.
His canvass has been manly and direct.
lie has not hidden behind an assump
tion of shyness, but has invited early
and prqlonged inspection by the people.
His methods havo not been those of in
direction. He has been open and frank.
He has .pursued a course that only a
man with a clear record can afford to
adopt, no Is a man, too, with a cen
tral, commanding idea in politics.

Office of GENERAL SECRETARY,

i Mr. S. R. Van Metre,
1 Marietta, Ohio.
I "Dear Sir:'
I have been informed by the firm of Sweet Orr &Oo.
that you have been called upon by a so-called representative of the
garment workers of the Knights of Labor and informed that Sweet
Orr & Oo.'s goods are boycotted. This is the very first time I have
heard of any such thing, and cannot understand why an attack should
be made on such a reputable firm, and a firm that operates a union
shop in every respect, and above all has the 6tamp of our organiza
tion upon his garments as being under fair and union conditions.
What more could be desired by any one. whether a Knight of Labor
or not? All the employees of the firm, numbering about one thous
and, have been members of this National Union (Local Unions 18
and 81) for the past five years, so how could the firmbe-discriminat
ing against anyone? Does Mr. Seegers want the members to join his
so-called Organization, which only has a paper existence, and has the
support of no one? Mr. Seegers himself is not a garment worker,
and does not earn his living at the trade. If he has imposed upon
any of the unions of vour locality I will write immediately so as to
inform them of the facts."
I send you a copy of our official 'journal which fully gives the
standing of Sweet Orr & Co. I am however much obliged to you for
the consideration shown towards organized labor.
Trusting this explanation will suffice, I am
