TIIE HOOK TBUAOT AKUUB FKIDAY, JULY 19, 1889.
TIIE DAILY ATCGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
Friday, Jclt 19. 1889.
Francis Mcrpht, the great temper
ance lecturer and writer, is quoted by the
8t. Louis Republic as speaking thuslj:
"The defeat of prohibition everywhere is
a good victory for temperance, rrohibi
tion is Phariseeism, fraud and hypocrisy.
It is an attempt to bring the church and
state together ami the people will not
permit it. Statutory laws do not stop
the sale of whisky, and the best thing that
can be done is to regulate and mitigate
the evil in a legitimate way. In Maine
whisky is sold in every town. Of course
prohibition works splendidly in Maine,
because they know that they can Ret
whisky whenever they desire it. The
death knell of prohibition is sounded.
Ilich license mid restrictive measures will
promote the cue of temperance, ami
the people sre sensible enough to see it."
Such litni;iin;e from one of the greatest
temerance workers of the ace and the
f ther of the celebrated Murphy move
ment should have some weight with the
thinking people of the United States.
trnrfir'a PrMeeled Labor.
The sinking workmen at Mr. Cr
negie's Homestead Mills have compro
mised by acceptiug an average reduction
of 2.1 per cent. This would appetr to be
a serious diminution of their earnings,
says the Chicago Ar.i.'J, but the men are
apparently content that the result is no
worse, nod a dispatrh from Pittsburg
says that "the reduction is mere child's
play compared with that demanded by
the tirm, which in one particular cave
amounted to 75 per cent." But what, in
view ot this settlement of the strike, is to
be said of the crushing oppression of a
concern that is able to subject its em
ployes to such a compromise? t)f all
protected manufacturers Mr. Carnegie
would naturally be supposed to have the
most sympathy for his workmen. He is
an ardent advocate of the protective
system which he pretends to believe is
highly instrumental in "dignifying and
ennobling" american labor. Beyond all
other protected American manufactur
ers he has been active in advancing
this theory. He has written eloquent
books lauding the tariff's beneficial ef
fecta. Yet, notwithstanding his regard
for American labor so eloquently set
forth in "Triumphant Democracy," Mr.
Carnegie has not stopped at cuts in
wages which would satisfy the ordinary
manufacturer. He has been more ex
acting with his men than manufacturers
who have bad much less to say of the
benefits of protection. Men who have
not written of the triumphs of protection
have been satisfied with a cut of 10 or
15 per cent , while Mr. Oroegie has re
fused to settle with his men except at a
sacrifice of less than 23 per cent of their
wages. The incident shows that a man
ufacturer's rea'. sympathy with labor is
not to be judged by his zeal for protec
tion. The stronger a protectionist he
is the worse it is for his men.

Deafness Can't bt Cored
by local application, as they can not
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by aa inflaaied con
dition of the mucus lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
yon have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
. bearing will he destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucus surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any rase of deafness (caused by catarrh)
that we can not cure by taking Hall's

went to Chicago lat evening to prevail on
nam iiUintcrewtd gentleman to act as um
pire in the mining arbitration. In theniean
time liotb sides are preparing their case in
the moet thorough manner. At tbe name
t.me the disposition manifested by both min
ers and on-rators is that of fairness. Tbe
miners have engaged Al.mn.ler Helm, a

wa-. formerly an operator of mines at this

Tbe operator will be aske t to demonstrate
whether the propiwcd reduction is called for
by the competition of southern Illinois coal
or by the cutthroat competit ton between the
operators of northern Illinois. The case of
the Coal Kun company will be presented by
Fawi-ett I'lumb, who will endeavor "to show

In view of this movement the miners held
a inrgely ntten.l.sl meeting in the public

men are very quiet, but are not the less de

OPPOSED TO AMALGAMATION.
A New Kngland labor Advocate on the
Propoed Iclior Alllaure.
Fall River, Mi, July Secretary
Howard, of tlie Spinners1 union, was inter
viewed yesterilay in regard to the proposed
alliance of all the great lulior organizations
of the country as suggested by thereceu'ly
ixiued circular of Mr. f'owderly and others,
Howard said that he had little faith in the
feasibility of the proposed organization, as
the interests which it was proponed to bene
fit were too widely divergent characters to
reap the anie intelligent aud prompt reme
dial measures as might be expected from a
lcs eomphuuted and curuttersome liudy.
lextile Horkm A!.. It.
Textile workers of New Kugland, Mr.
Howard was satisfied, would not look favor
ably upon the propied amalgamation, as
twvy were satisfied that a more direct aud
profitable method of settling wage disputes
nnl obtaining redress for grievance was
through tlie medium of organizations repre
senting solely th) branch of industry in
which they were engaged.
The Knight I lend in New Kngland.
The Knights of Labor," said Mr. Howard,
"are practically dead in New England and I
don't believe their former power can be re
stored. Their mismanagement, or worse, of
their recent strike of tbe tVorr-ester shoe
maker destroyed all hope of their future
usefulness. This latest movement is a scheme
on Uie art of some of the lenders to recoup
their fallen fortune and recover thepres
tigfl tiiry beld in lormer days.
"The movement may meet witi: success in
the west an I south, an I ulttionu I express
imply my own opinion, I have little hesi
tancy in saying that the mill oerittives will
not look favorably Ukhi the plan. The ex
pense f tue executive de artmeut of tbe
Knight of 1-aU.r wusu great draw back. The
same object ton would apply to tbe proposed
amalgamation, an I the delays incidental to
the adjustment of union matters would also
serve to make it uiiopular. "
REIGN OF TERROR OVER A STRIKE.
A Whole Town Torn t' Iiruiif tha
Matter With Pitola aud Knives.
Lonoon, July 111 A reign of terror pre
vails in the little mining town of Leolu in
Htyria, where tbe whole pulntiou is on
strike. All the small tradesmen, and even
the civic fire brigade, have made common
cause with the striking miuers, and all com
merce and industry are sus-ude.. The
strikers' attitude is threatening and the de
struction of iaxich property is certain to be
tbe outcome unless tbe small force of mili
tary at that point is very largely reinforced,
and that promptly.
The miners of liartraund, too, are discuss
ing a renewal of their strike, aud their dis
cuMlmui are not restricted to wordy agu
menta. Their meeting Wednesday night de
generated into a fight, in which pistols and
antves ware treaty used, one of the man be
ing shot dead, another subbed to the heart.
and many seriously wounded. The fight was
stopped only by a cbarge of cavalry, w ho
rode down the mob and arrested a number
of the most violent.
All bat Three Have Signed.
Pittsbcro, Pa.. July 1S. Ail but three
iron and steel firms in thi vicinity have

ifactonly arranged at these three mills.
Tuey are Kcboenberger & Co., A. M. Byers

first named firm has announced that it will
not sign the scale unless it is made to slide
tbe same as the om agreed to for the Home

aginst the favorite candidate. Gan.
Slaughter was sent for.
The General Blnshed.
"General" said Mr. Miller, "before I can
further consider your candidacy you must
explain away this charge against your char
acter.1 He handed G.nv Slaughter a document
signed by a doxen or two Alalwuia Repub

Slaughter read, blushed, and bung bis head.
The attorney general was surprised

George Washington' House.
Washington Citt, July 19. Few people,
even in thi city, appear to be aware of tbe
fact that the only house ever built by the
father of bis country in Washington City is
still standing and seemingly in good repair.
It is situated near the capitol grounds, not
far from tbe Baltimore and Ohio depot, on
North Capitol street. The house was origi
nally a three-story brick, but when the street
on which it stands was graded two more
stories were added, making it a five-tory
building, w hich is now used for a hotel. Some
of the rooms are pretty much in tbe same
condition as they were w hen occupied by tbe
Washington in 17.i A few old pieces of
furniture are said to tie still secreted about
the bouse. Just why this old landmark is
not mentioned in the guide book it is hard
t say. It ought to l one of the attractions
for strangers v isiting the city.

New York, July 111. A Hartford (Conn.)
special to The Times says: "The teit for
a bill which is to be introduced at the open

ing the most gigantic scheme for railroad
consolidation ever candidly discussed in tbis

"The fundamental idea is to make Boston
the metropolis of the continent While the
inter-state commerce commission and the
business men of New England are discussing
the problems to lie solved on ae-ount of the
low freight rates offered on the Canadian
Pacific road, the consolidationists are con
summating plans for the absorption of tbe
Canadian rlvul with the American system,
and the establishment of the greatest rail
road power in the world. The Viilard sys
tem is the only one not embraced iu the con
ception. Alleged Compos!! ion of the SvMtem.
The Union and Northern Pacific roads and
the Canadian Pacific are the ones to be con
solidated. Tbe system extending from Santa

by way of the Pennsylvania coiil regions and
across the Hudson river at Poughkeesie,
taking in the Hartford and Connecticut

run a steamship line to Europe, furuishiug
the amplest aiismunodatioiis for freight and
passenger tratlle from the Pacific sloe to the
largest ports oil the European continent.
ItetxlW Are Not Arfmilila.
"The dotal Ls of the bill can not lie ascer
tained at present, but its projectors state
that members of the senate are familiar with
the scheme and ore enthusiastic for its prose
cution. The capitalization to be asked for
will uot be less than (7iltl,(NKI,(KXl. In tbe
main the Consolidation will secure the

capitalists w ill joai hands iu the enterprise,
effecting a commercial union at present and
ultimately a political one with the Canadian
territory. American capitalist will be in

A Cab 1 Line in the Scheme.
"The consolidation also contemplates the
ownership of a new ocean cable joining Bos
ton with the German empire. Utopian as
the plans may seem at fii-st, they have been
skilfully formulated, and they will have to
1 discussed by an intelligent public within
the next four mouths. Th3 sum of (T5,o00
has been expended in securing surveys for
the maps, which Hand, McXally oi Co. are
publishing for the originators of the con
