The following highly significant news
comes from Ithar-a, New York:
The failure of Kandermark Bros., wool
en manufacturers of Brook ton, for $27,
000, brings op an interesting feature of
the last campaign. The Yandermark
brothers worked hard for Harrison and
coerced their employes into voting the
republican tiiket by saying that a reduc
tion of tbe tariff would cause them to sus
pend operations. While a prominent
democratic campaign speaker was at
Brookton last fall to show the fallacy of
a Ugh tariff, one of the Vandermark
brothers called him a d d liar for prearb
ing such an "absurd doctrine." At the
meeting the woolen manufacturer made
his way to tbe platform and said:
"Unless Harrison is elected our firm
cannot keep running. A democratic ad
miniitralion would ruin us."
The failure now of the firm, which sis
months ago was in a prosperous condi
tion, shows bow the tariff helps tbe wool
manufacturer and his employes.
All who bare been subjected to an
elimination for life insurance will
thoroughly appreciate the following from
the Chicago J If raid: "'What's that?
Oh, I'm thirty-two years of age and 1
have never had consumption or Bright's
disease,' said a gentleman to a friend on
Dearborn street yesterdsy morning. Tbe
friend regarded him with astonishment.
and asked him what he meant by volun
leering such irrelevant information. Tbe
first speaker said: 'You must really ex
cuseme. Can't help it. Just been ei
amined for life insurance and really don't
know what I am saying. They asked
me everything. The? wanted to know
if my cousin bad ever had the measles, or
if I had known a man who had been
taken into the confidence of a surgeon
and vaccinated. Then they asked if I
had ever written a postal card to any
man whose wire bad died or consump
tion. Afler this tbey measured my
chest, took tbe size of my collar, and
asked the name of the man who did my
laundry work. When I thought that
they were through with 'me they sub
prnaed my bootmaker and bad him make
a deposition as to the size and extent of
my corna. I was recalled to tbe stand
and asked how many vest buttons I bad
lost during the last fiscal year. Then
they look a brass band and tried the size
of my bat. When they released me I
was told that I might get my f 1,000
policy within a few weeks. Since then
I have learned that by simply dropping a
nickel in the slot I can get a policy with
out revealing tbe secrets of my past life.
Do vou wonder that 1 am half insane?

Wheeling, W. Va., Bept Investiga

this state, have brought to light a fiVndittb
plot which in murderou ingenuity rivals
tons? invented by Edgar Allen Poe or Emile
Oaboriau. Abuta month ago a white man

had been a criminal all hialife. West was

In some porta of West V.rginia. The lynch
ers took little pain to conceal tbe ir iden

lowed the crime the concensus of public
opinion was that it was a good thing to have
Turner out of the way and that tbe man ner
of his taking oil did not make much differ
ence. CnrteMty I a Ooed Thine, Too.
However, curiosity about tha motive for
Want's murder was aroused. It was not rob
bery, for no attempt bad been made to nfla
the body, although Turner had plenty of
time to secure his victim's valuables. It
eould not have lieen revenge, as the two men
hail never met before tha crime was com

REJECTED A COMPROMISE.
Tbe London Dork Laborers Not Inclined
to Trust the Companies.
Londox, Hept 9. On Haturday, through
tbe efforts of tbe lord mayor, the bishop ot
London, Sir John Lubbock and Cardinal
Manning, tbe dock managers were induced
to offer tbe strikers all tbey asked immedi
ately, exoept the increase of wages, which
tbey desired to postpone uutil Jan. 1, 1)0.
When this propiaition was made to Burns
and tbe other leaders of tbe strikers they are
asserted to have accepted it But upou pre
senting it to the men at their meeting Sat
urday night it was rejected.
A Chanre In Public Opinion.
The result of this has been that public
opinion, which bad been up to Saturday
evening aluuart a unit in sympathy with tbe
strikers, bas experienced a revulsion which
cannot fail to have an influence upon the ul
timate result of their fight. Tbe action of
Burns and Tillett, the leaders of the men, in
signifying their approval of a compromise
and then, when tbe proposal had been un
conditionally accepted by the dock
managers, deliberately repudiating it, is al
most every where condemned.
The Lord Mayor Disgusted.
i no loru mayor asserts mat Burns un
questionably accepted tbe compromise pro
posed, and says that, now the men have re
jected it, be washes his hands of the whole
business. Hints are not wanting that tbe
leaders of the men have euds of their own to
compass, which are to Iw furthered only by
a continuance of the strike, and that they do
not nesitate, (or purely selosb considerations,
to sacrifice the beat interests of their willing
An Issue of Veracity.
Burns himself denies that be ever accept
ed tbe terms proposed, and insists that tbe
men are certain to bring the dock mauagers
to their senses, and that Thursday will see
a cempieie victory ior me men. tie says
tbe striker bad excellent reasons for reject-
lug tbe compromise.
Afraid of the Dork Manajrera.
The dock managers, be says, were willing
enough to end their troubles in this way, as
this would give them over three months in
which to prepare for the change, and long
before tbe end of that time they could have
ousted every man concerned in the agree
ment and filled the places of tbe men with
others who would t rfoctly willing to
work at any terms offered them. The men.
be says, are not to be caught by this sort of
chaff. Tbey are well aware that tbey have the
wbip band at present, and tbey will not con
sent to yield their advantage for a deferred
advance of wages, the fruit of which they
are never imeiy to reap.
The Lord Mayor and Cardinal Speak.
Tbe lord mayor and Cardinal Manning
yesterday joined in a letter in which they re
count the negotiations leading up to the pro
posed compromise, lis acceptance by John
Hums, and its nual rejection by the men.
Tbey exireas great surprise at tbe repudia
tion by tbe Btrixlng men of an agreement en
tared into deliberately by their leaders and
warn the men that if they persist in continu
ing the strike they will forfeit the sy in-
party of all classes, which has been hitherto
freely accorded tbem.
The Men Stick to Their Ground.
The meeting of strikers at Hyde park yee-
taraay waa an orderly affair. Burns bar.

New York, Sept 9. The Evening Sun
publishes the following:
"To the Editor: A good deal bas been
said about my becoming a candidate for
congress. I want to say that after thinking
the matter over I have decided that when
the time comes to elect new congressmen in
Boston I will be a candidate on the Demo
cratic ticket if tbe nomination is offered ma.
There are several reasons which have in
duced me to adopt this course. Iu the first
place I have always supported the party and
have always voted for it I am sound as far as
my political record is concerned, and I feel
that I deserve the support of the party on
that score. Then I have personal friends
and general admirers enough iu Boston to
elect me, anyhow. Any man who doubts
my popularity with the American eople
bas only got to travel about with me to get
rid of that notion.

Sullivan, who is in this city, was seen by
a United Press reporter in regard to tbe
above. He said there was no more to add.
"I shall certainly accept the nomination,'' he
continued, "if tendered; and I shall certainly
look to the interest of those w ho send me
there. I have had as much experience in

THE EXTRA SESSION QUESTION
Derided by the Cabinet, at Last, In the
Washington City, Sept 8. Speculation
concerning an extra session of congress is
for aw hile at rest The sut.j -d was thor
oughly discussed at tbe cabinet meeting Sat
urday. No other question was considered
for nearly three hours. All the secretaries,
with the exception of Blaine aud Rusk, were
present, and all ot ttw-ni were against
an extra session save Miller, who was
pronounced for it At the conclusion the
president said be could see no political ad
vantage to be gained by an extra session,
and it was decided not to call oue. At any
rate that is what is the current report here
among the kuowing ones. The idea seems to
be that as the new state elictums will uol
take place for some tune, and the representa
tives from them could not get here prolatbly
unt il some tune in November, it would not
be worth while te hold a session for the short
time intervening between their arrival and
the regular time for congress to assemble.

hotel Saturday at 4 a. m., and as soon as
Brodie ecu Id be gottuu ready be was sent on
his perilous trip.
How Mm Waa Prepared.
The prejiaration consisted of pu'ting
Brodie into an India rublier suit, aft-r aok
ing cotton aroun d him to the dojith of sev
eral inches. The suit was inflated until it
was fifty-two inches around the waist, and
seventy-live imhes around the chest, the
hi-ad piece also being filled with air and the
whole protected on tbe outside with bands of
Sent Oft on His Jonruey.
Arrayed Urns, Brodie was shoved into the
water feet first, about auO feet above the
fall., with a paddle in his hands, with whii-h
he rapidly drove himself to tbe middle cf
the stream. He went over the brink in the
middle of the Horseshoe fall having taken
his depnrture from the Canadian shore
and disj -armi Men were watchiwg be
low tlie falls, and as he went over they
strained their eyes to see where he came to
the surface, if be ever arose. It was two
minutes Iwfore tbe watchers saw a black
speck bobbing around in tbe rouh water at
tbe foot of the precipice, and Ledger, with a
rope around his waist, plunged in and swam
to the object, which proved to be Brodie.
Brought to Shore I nron.rioiiH.
Taking hold of the sfcel bands, Iedi;er was
hauled ashore with his burden, and as soon
as possible the rublier suit was opened and
Steve was found with blood issuing from
mouth, nose, and ears and unconscious. Re
storatives were applied aud the jumper
brought round, when he was taken to his
hotel and put to bed. He was apparently
all right by noon, and, speaking of the feat,
said he had possessed a mania for a long time
to go over tbe falls, and uow he had done it
He folt when he went over as if he was dy
ing, and after that he knew nothing until lie
was reRuac'tated. H. hal kept the affair
secret because he was afraid of arrest. He
would as soon go over with nothing ou but a
life preserver, as he did not now think there
was any danger.
Arreated and Put I n.ler Bond.
The foolhardy juiner was arrested Satur
day afternoon and taken liefore a Canadian
police magistrate, w ho said that if be did not
go over the falls he would discharge him.
Brodie was willing to say be did not, but
wouldn't swear to it. The justice said he
would have to stand trial, then.and Led;-er,
who was said to have rescued Brodie, was
put on the stand. He s ore be was not there,
and knew nothing about the matter. No one
else could be found who had aenu tlix jmiv
