Bliding Scales of Wages Adopted
by the Management— No Truth
in the Report ol" the Consoli- J
dation of the Northern Trans- ,
continental Lines — Personal
The Chicago Great Western's shops
at South Park, which closed last Friday,
will be reopened Monday. The neces
sity of making certain repairs was the
cause of the shutting down, In rela
tion to the report that the boilermakers
of the road ha\'e refused to accept the
cut below the $2.90 ptr day rate, the
fact is not denied, i lie fact, however,
is that the men have taken no stand in
the matter, and just what they will do
remains to be seen. If they will not
stand the reduction, the fact will be
evident Monday when the .shops open.
It is well known that the road ordered
a reduction in salaries the 15th of 10 per
cent on all salaries, from the chairman
of the directorate down, applying to all
classes excepting those receiving W0
per month and less. As the boiler
makers' union has a fixed seaie, its
attempt at resisting the diminution in
their earnings is not at all unlikely.
What is "true of the Chicago : Great
Western boilermai.eis is equally true of
those of the Great Northern, who were
cut 15 per cent on all salaries under

published yesterday morning. Incre
dulity greeted the report at the North
ern Pacific general offices yesterday,
and Assistant General Manager Pearce.
speaking in the absence of General
Manager Kendrick, had heard nothing
officially of such consolidation. At the

treated lightly and with some degree ot
amusement. There was one individual,
however, who intimated that lie had

stances, thought tho combination un

Reported Redaction of Northern
Pacific Salaries Verified. .'.
Every official and employe of the
Northern Pacific in St. Paul and Minne
apolis read with interest tho dispatches
! from New YorK as published yesterday
morning, that the receivers of the road
had ordered a reduction in salaries.
Late yesterday afternoon inquiry
was made and the cut officially
i confirmed. Said one official, who dis-
I likes press notoriety, anil for that rea-
I son his name is omitted: "There is no
| secret about the matter; it is absolutely
! true. 1 think every oflicial and em
ploye looks with loyal affection to the
old road which !«s furnished so many
ot them with a livelihood, and now that
financial depression has come over it,
will gracefully accent the inevitable
and trust that a better time will come
by and by. The general sentiment is to
stand by "the road with loyal- devotion.
Now as to the amount of. the reduction,
1 can fully confirm the statement that
salaries have been reduced on the fol
lowing basis: 11,200 to §5,000, 10 per
cent; f 5,000 up to $10,000, 15 per cent:
910,000 and over, '20 per cent,
Grand Army Men May Use Tliem
— Transcontinental Kates Cut.
CniCAGO, Aug. IS.— At today's ii.eet
ing of the Western Passenger associa
tion it was decided to sell to the visitors
to the Grand Army . encampment at
i Indianapolis the regular world's fair
excursion tickets to Chicago, and with
i them an extension ticket between St.
Louis or Chicago and Indianapolis. The
business will be handled in all respects
exactly as the world's fair travel. Tho
council of administration of the world's
fair has requested of the Central Traffic
and Western Passenger associations
that all the world's fair excursion tick
els have on them a coupon entitling the
holder to admission to th« fair. The fair ;
people will then collect of the roads 50 |
cents for every such coupon taken in at i
j the gates. The matter will be consid- j
ered within a short time, but the senti
ment of the roads is rather against it, as
it makes extra work for them, witn no j
'return in cash.
The Union Pacific today gave notice j
that on next Sunday it would put in j
effect a $23 first-class rate from all
Missouri river points between Kansas
City and Sioux City to Butte, Helena,
Portland and Spokane. The second
class fare will be put at ?18. Tim fame
first-class rate will apply east-bound,
but there will be no second-class east
bound rate. The California rate com
tnittee has submitted a proposition to
the Western road? to make a $70 selling •
and $65 basing rate from California to
the Missouri river. This would mean a
rate to Chicago of a trine under ?i>o.
The Central Traffic association has
announced that for the Grand Army
encampment open round-trip tickets
may be sold at one cent per mile Sept.
2. 8 and 4 from all points in Central
Traffic territory, and on Sept. 5 from
points within a radius of 150 miles of In
dianapolis,to be good going only on date
of sale, and goud returning not later
than Sept. 16. No stopovers are allowed
on any of the tickets.
The Receivership of the N. P. Will
Not Affect This Road.
MiiVwackek, Wis., Aug. 18. -Howard
Morris, general solicitor and secretary
of the Wisconsin Central, expresses it !
as his opinion that the appointment of
receivers for the Northern Pacific will
have no unfavorable effect on the Cen
tial lines. Mr. Morris has just returned
from Now York, and he left the city
again this morning. The receivership
does not affect the . Wisconsin Cen
tral company, the only relation of
which with the .Noi them Pacific is
that the. - latter has leased the Central
company's lines. The receivers will op
erate the lines under the lease, and com
ply with Us conditions with reference to
the Wisconsin Central company or for
feit it. Mr. Payne says that be had re
ceived no official information regarding
the suits against the Northern Pacific
; directors, and he cofild make no State-
I ment as to the effect it would have on
the affairs of the company. Others in
this city who are interested in the com
pany maintain that bringing the actions
against the directors is simply one way
of attempting to bring honorable men
into disrepute, and to cause them
trouble. They predict that the charges
will fall flat when the cases are tried in
the courts instead of. the newspapers. "
Excelsior Geyser.
Telegraphic advices from the Yellow-
stone park received by the Northern
Pacific state that Exctlsior geyser
gives strong Indications that it will
commence playing at an early date.
This is the largest geyser In the- world,
and has not had an eruption in four
years. When active it throws a stream;
of water "*o feet - in '.. diameter and 300
leet high.
His Charges Made to Influence
Proxies. .•
Boston, Au«r. 18.— The story of . a
sensational suit brought in Philadelphia
against four directors of the Northern
Pacific for malfeasance in -office was
shown today to one ot them, win ' 11.
"This is all rot," said Mr. Abbott,
emphatically, when he read the story.
"It, is merely an attempt to influence
proxies at the coming election in Octo
ber. The whole thing was threshed
over last winter." —
Mr. Abbott said this was all the work
of Bray ton Ives, and that his charges
were all completely answered eight
months ago.
As to the charge that the directors
bought for the Northern Pacific prop
erties in which they were personally in
terested, Mr. Abbott said that when the
Wisconsin Central lines, with which he
is connected, were leased, he was not a
member of the Northern Pacific board,
and did not become so for some months
afterward. When he did go in it was
for the reason that an interest repre
senting, about a thousand miles of road
ought to have some one in the board to
look after its interests.
"Mr. lyes' charges are groundless,
and have been so adjudicated in the
United States circuit court by Hon.
.Walter Q. Greshani, then United States
circuit judge, and his only object is ''to
influence proxies.".
Will Have Nothing' to Do With
Northern. Pacific.
New York, Aug. IS.— Russell Sage
denied very emphatically today the. re
port that he had bsen offered the posi
tion or chairman of the board of direct
ors ot the Northern Pacific Railroad
company, or that he would lake it if
tendered to him. .
"1 have not the slightest interest in
Ihe property, and the story that 1 hold a
large number of its securities as collat
eral for loans is utterly without founda
tion," said he.
• Unique Folder.
The Northwestern line has issued an
unique folder, well. worthy of preserva
tion. It is interestingly illustrated.
Columbus' caravel, the Santa Maria, a
model of which is now anchored in
Lake Michigan at Chicago, alongside
the convent of La Rabirta, is shown.
To the advocates of the theory that to
Lief Erickson belongs the honor of the
discovery of America it is interesting
to know that the folder gives a
prominent plate to. a picture
of the viking ship Coksladiind,
which is an exact model of
the original viking ship unearthed
from an ancient Norwegian mound, and
in which i . is claimed that the bold
Norseman crossed the North Atlantic
ocean in the year 1000. This model is
also to be seen at Chicago. A picture of
an exact reproduction of Columbus' re
treat, the Convent of La Kablda, which
has been erected at Chicago, as well
also of a reproduction of Washington's
home, Mount Version, now at Chicago,
are also shown. There are other illus
trations and much interesting informa
tion regarding the exposition, as well as
pertinent pointers on the Northwestern
line and its time card fur Chicago trains.
The "Stamp Act."
The changed conditions at the North
ern Pacific, general offices since that
road has passed into receivers' hands
entail a large amount of extra work.
Every printed form used in the several
departments now has to receive the
imprint from a • rubber sla«ur> of .the
words "Thomas F. Oakes, Henry C.
Payne, Henry C. House, -. Receivers."
Between twenty and thirty girls are
doing the "stamp act" in the stationery
j room, and they will be busy for several
days before they can complete the
New Freight Tariff. .
The Ogden Transit company has put

Case Pronounced Hopeless by ■/■■■
the Leading ; Physicians .\~
of Sussex County. ■
(By Special Correspondence to the N Y.
. Press.)
The busy little village of Branchville,
N. J., has been the scene of a modern
miracle. Chas. F. Strable.a well-known
and prosperous farmer, living on Home
stead Farm, in Frank ford Township, a
few miles from Branchville, is just now
the chief subject of discussion through
out Sussex Count)'.
The Press is always up to date in its
news, both political or medical, and
lias procured the following from Mr.
Struble's own lips:
"I have been troubled with rheuma
tism off and on for 20 years. 1 havje
tried all kinds of medicines and treat
ments. I have taken sulphur baths at
Hamburg, N. J.; Newton, N. J., and in
New York City with a doctor who
charged me $2.50 a bath each day. An
English doctor treated me with a eal
vunic battery at Rock a way, Morris Co.,
N. Y. I Have tried many doctors. None
of them did me any permanent good. 1
used all kinds ot liniments 1 could hear
of, but without avail.
"About two years ago 1 was taken
much worse and my doctor said 1 had
locomotor ataxia of the spine, and that
the chances were against me. After
treating for a time, he finally pave me
up aud said he had done all 'he could for
"The cords of my limbs were drawn
tight as the cords on a kettle drum, and
1 had such cramps in my limbs that 1
suffered terrible pain. My feet were
cold all the time. I had to use a hot
water bag and heated bricKs to my feet,
but even then 1 could not get any lelief.
"Finally I heard of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People, and 1 com
menced taking them on Feb. 6th, 1593.
1 found in three days time that the
cords in my legs began to 'let up,' my
feet began to iret warm. 1 began to eat
and sleep well, and in one month 1 had
gamed six pounds. The numbness in
my limbs began to leave me, too, and
today 1 feel like a new man, and cannot
say too much in praise of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. lam able to walk anu do
some work, and all this is after using
only nine boxes or Pink Pills. 1 feel so
grateful for my recovery that 1 am glad
to let the public, know w.'iat these pills
have done for me."
In order to emphasize his story, Mr.
Struble made the following affidavit:
Sworn and subscubud before me this
thirteenth day or April. A. 1). 1893.
Ika Coss, Justice of the Peace.
Justice Coss evidenced his interest
and good feeling by the following cer
1 hereby certify that all that Mr.
Struble says regarding his rheumatic
and other troubles 1 believe to be true
and correct.
ISA Coss, Jti9ticeof the Peace.
On the farm with Mr. Struble live
his two adirit sisters. Miss Annie M.
Struble made the following statement:
"Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People have done wonderful things for
my brother. He was in a helpless con
dition when I left him on Jan. 12th last,
and when i returned on March 25th, 1
found him cured. The most remark
able thing about the case," she con
tinued, "is the curing of his lameness.
Of course, I wanted to know all about
tbe causes of sucii a wonderful change,
and 1 learned from him and my sister
and others tuut ouring mr absence lit
had been u>hig the Pink Pills, and that
his recovery was attributed soiely to
Miss Mary E. Struble said: "I saw
my brother in all the stages of the dis
ease, lie began improving as soon as
he began taking the Pink Piils. When
my sister went away In January lie
was apparently at death's door, and no
body seemed to have any hope for him.
\\v. certainly Had little ur none for him
self, and 1 c was very despondent in
suite of all efforts tii cheer him He
de.-lared tliat he felt better as soon as
he began taking the Pink Pills, and to
one who. iike nivself, whs at'ending
him clay by day, tlierecouid be no doubt
that they and they alone were the cause,
of his unuioYvm nt. Why. all oMier
things he bad tried he had abandoned,
for they had failed to do him the slight
est good. What else could have put
him on his leet again. We don't won
der at his enthusiasm tor the Pink
Pi IK"
George J. Bowman, the proprietor of
the American hotel at Branchville, said:
"All that Mr. Struble says in reference
to tin- Pink i'ills 1 know to be true. In
fact, he can't say too much about them,
for they have undoubtedly saved his
At the Branchville drug store, chief
clerk Henry Beeiner, remarked. "I have
no doubt that Dr. Williams' PinK Pills
have cured Mr. Struble." Joseph H.
McDonalcl.the proprietor of the General
Store of Brauchville, and Postmaster
Knox, expressed themselves in similar
IMnk Pills for many years previous to
their general manufacture were used as
a prescription. Atlirst they were chiefly
prescribed for impure blood and gen
eral weakness. Now they are found to
be a never-failing specific for such dis
eases as locomotor ataxia,t>artial paraly
sis. St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, nemalgia,
rheumatism, n°rvous headache, the
after effect of La Grippe, palpitation of
the heart, pale and sallow complexions,

Heavy Damage by Hail Over in
A special meeting of the city council
Is called for next Tuesday* evening,
when the light question will be consid
ered. A very large proportion of the
residents of the city are in favor of hav
ing street lights, and are anxious for
the council to take some steps in the
matter. The contract with the Still
water Gas and Electric Light company
expired two months ago, and since that
time citizens have enjoyed no lights on
the streets. Chances are that if lights
can be secured at a more reasonable fig
ure another contract wiU be made with
the same company.
A number of farmers residing in the
vicinity of Somerset, on the Wisconsin
side of the St. Croix. and in the neigh
borhood of May's lake in this county,
were in the city yesterday, and report a
very heavy hail storm Thursday even
ing. Corn stalks were stripped, and all
garden truck was badly damaged. In
one house forty-two panes of glass were
broken. Fortunately all wheat and oats
had been harvested, and the damage
done was not as great as if the storm
had c»n>e ten days earlier. The ground,
it is said, was covered with several
inches of hail.

-Chicago, Aug. 18. -The delay In

seemed to put the board of trade in . the
dumps today. The decline In wheat

1/Vc for December, then ruled steady
for some time, became firmer, and the
closing was easy, 4 c from bottom.
An early report made the clearances
from Baltimore 330,000 bushels, which
made a little temporary strength. - But
later advices cast some doubt upon the
authenticity of this report, and the re
sult was to weaken prices. A state
ment telegraphed from Washington was
to the effect that the last national bank
statement showed a decrease of $193,
--000,000 in deposits, and $197,000,000 de
crease in loans. -.
Trade was light. Most of the busi
ness was in die way of changing Sep
tember into December. Cables were of
an unfavorable tenor, and helped to de
press values, but the chief cause, prob
ably, for the weakness was the lack of
trade. The re was rather more disposi
tion to sell -than buy. It was reported
that Germany was sending money here
to carry wheat, and it was also rumored
that $4,000,000 more gold had been with
drawn from the Bank of England for
The wheat does not appear to move
out of Chicago as it should, and there is
some talk of the bulk of it staying here
all winter.
. Corn was quiet and easy on more rain
in the interior and the weakness in

liberal or urgent, exceeded the demand.
The close was steady at inside figures.
In oats a little more pressure to sell
was observed, and prices receded lie,

The provision market weakened un
der the receipt of 30.000 hogs. Pork
and lard closed at the lowest point of
the day's range, but September ribs re
covered 10c from bottom prices. Armour
& Co. and the American Packing com
pany bid up ribs toward the close.
Freights were dull. Rates are so low
' that boats are tying up. and offerings
of room are light. Kates to Buffalo
were l.^c for wheat and lc tor corn, and

New York, Aug. 18.— The markets
for securities were extremely dull again
today. The sales of stocks footed up
92,296 shares.and the trading for outside
account was probably higher than on
any previous day for weeks and months
past. : Less than half a dozen stocks
showed important fluctuations, and in
these instances the movements were
most erratic. General Electric dropped
\% to 37%. rose to 39}.,', broke to 31%,
rallied to o.Hi and closed at 3S?£. Man
hattan showed a net loss of 2 percent
and Lake Shore and Northwestern
about 1 per cent, while Distillers gained
1 and Lackawanna and Rock Island
% to %. During the afternoon the
heavy arrivals of gold, the announce
ment of further engagements for ship
ment to this side and Washington ad
vices that the silver question would be
brought up for discussion in the senate
on Tuesday next, led to a rally in the
market, but the bears sold at the higher
range of quotations, aud a reaction en
sued at the close. Speculation left off
generally weak in tone. There is a
very general indisDOsition to operate
pending definite information in regard
to silver legislation, and even the pro
fessional traders are losing interest in i
the market. General Electric was
traded in to the extent of 15,903 shares.
No other stock figured for as much as
10,008, and at intervals the market was
positively neglected.

K. H. linn & Co.'s Statement of
ItlssliU".-, Condition's.
New York, Aug. IS —R. G. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade: There is
a rift in the clouds. Faint and yet def
inite signs of improvement are all the
better because they come, not from pos
j^bly delusive hopes or from momentary
foreign aid, but from the good sense !
and the wonderful recuperative . power
of the people themselves. Busi
ness 13 trying to go ahead without
waiting for Washington. Imported
gold, S'J.OOO,OOO or more during the
week, does not go to the right spot, but i
the people are 'creating a home-made
currency for themselves by using cprti
tied checks In paying hands, .settling
local accounts, and purchasing grain
and cotton. Little money, comes back
as yet from . timid hoards, and the
paralysis of exchange is near! v as com
plete as ever, but that very fact pus.ies
each section and city into relying; more
on itself, and. less on government and
Wall street. Resumptions are now be
coming somewhat frequent, and in tho i
very shrinkage of production: men see !
evidence that demand must soon over
take supply.
. Pig iron does not rally, but sells at $14
here and $13 at Pittsburg for No. 1, I
though the weekly output has been ie
i-duced 4*3 per cent since May iaat.
Though five concerns have failed and
twenty -four stopped during the week ,
fourteen have resumed. With such)
shrinkage in the great industries it is
surprising that railroad earnings do not
decline more, the decrease on roads re
porting in August thus far being 18
per cent. The decrease of 25 per
cent in clearings outside New York
last week and 30 Der cent this week is
only natural. A little, more money is
now found for commercial loans, and
failures of banks have become both less
important and less frequent, though the
greatest caution is shown in accommo
dations. The receivership for the North
ern Pacific had been so fully discounted
that it produced little effect, though
this is the third great railroad default
this year, and the aggregate stocks and
bonds of the three roads amount to
?650,000.000. Prices of securities have
yielded comparatively little. Cotton,
fell a quarter of a cent, with somewhat
better reports of probable yields. Wheat
drags near the lowest figures ever
known, in spite of the decrease in the
visible supply, for though Western re
ceipts are not large, stocks on hand are
far beyond the power of speculators to
carry with money markets in their
present condition. * The . movement of
corn is decidedly large, with crop pros
peels improving.
Important relief comes from the
abatement ot the drain upon savings
banks, and of the demand upon other
banks for currency to be used in paying
hands in this aud adjacent states.
The commercial failures this \veel<
number 455 in the United States against
102 for the same week last year, and 27
in Canada against 25 last year. Two of
the fail in were of firms employing
over $1,000,000 capital each: twelvo
others were employing each over $100,
--009, and ninety-two were firms of over
$5,000 capital.
