tbe establishment of malleable iron works
In that city. The Johnson Whiffle tree
company haa proposed to establish a
twenty-ton plant, giving employment to
seventy men, if sufficient assistance is
;ven them. The Teoria Herald aays
that the proposition will be certain to
strike the association with great force
ami that all asked will be readily granted
Tub average prices in Wall street the
pist week were a little higher than the
previous week. At the same time the
apprehension regarding money seems to
have been lessened. There promises to
be less financial disturbance incident to
the distribution of funds than wascx
perienced last fall. Exports are ins
creasing. There Is more confidence in
railroad management than a while back.
and the symptoms of disturbance in that
direction are less marked. Foreign
bourses were quiet, with prices mainly
steady. At London discount was in
strong demand, and prices of American
securities were well maintained.
Tiik chief protection organ of the
country, the New York Tribune, appears
to (lifter with Senator Cullom as to who
are the chief beneficiaries of the protect

pressed its sore displeasure with those
New England manufacturers, who, find
ing that protection la destroying them,
ask for relief from it as the only means of
keeping their mills In operation and their
workmen employed, the Trihunt says
that tbev the manufacturers have been
"pocketing Ibe largest shaie of the pro
tective system for twenty years." Sena

that the farmers of the west are, and
have been, the tariff's greatest beneflcia

A Raw Over the F.leeirie.
Yesterday morning the Central Street
Railway company in Moline commenced
taking out a switch just at the top of the
hill, and by noon started to lay a straight
track in its place. The switch was com
posed of tram rail, and in ita place the
workmen, under orders of Superintend
ent W. R Moore, started to lay the
straight line of T rails. Mayor Wessel
got on to it, and notified Mr. Moore to
quit Uylng the T rail, as the ordinance
rails for tram rail. Moore refused to
stop the work, and continued to lay T
rail. Mayor WcmcI instructed Marshal
Kittilsen to go up and if the work was
not stopped, to arrest Moore and his men.
The marshal and several officers went
np at 1.10 the 'iifi-A says, and ordered
the work stopped. He told Moore not to
drive another spike or lay another rail.
"What will you do if I drive another
spike?" retorted Moore.
"Arrest you." replied Kittilsen.
To test the officer, Mr. Moore coolly
picked upaspike'and drove it in. The
officers immediately arrested him and two
of his workmen, and they were placed in
the patrol wagon which was standing by
and taken down to the police head
quarters. The Dipit-h further says:
One trouble with this ordinance, as
with a number of others is that it haa no
penalty attache! Mr. Moore says Trails
were being used because the company haa
no tram-rail at hand. He avers that the
taking up of the switch improves the
street, no matter what sort of rail is used
He holds furthermore that the city auth
orities bad no richt to arrest him or his
men, the ordinance not peine a penal one.
He sav an injunction should have been
gotten out had they wanted the work
stopped. He threatens to have Mayor
Wesiiel arrested for abusive language.
The affair was amicably adjusted this
morning, and Moore released.

At the conclusion of bis speech Secretary
Blaine withdrew and resolutions were adopt
ed naming James O. Blaine as president of
tba con grass. John B. Henderson acted as
president pro tern. Tba congress adjourned
until Monday, Nov. 16, after, listening to a
brief talk by Chairman Henderson. He
spoke of the importance of tbe present gath
ering and of the horns- be felt in being called
upon to preside. He said tbe deliber
ations of the con jress would doubtless
be scrutinised as closely as those of
any body of men ttmt ever assembled, and
the eyes of tba wo id were upon it. He
dwelt at some length on tbe far-reaching
possibilities of tbe d-ring or tbe congress. In
referring to tba excursion to which the dele
gates bad been invited, Mr. Henderson said
it was intended not only to give them an op
portunity to see the places of i terest in the
various pans of thi country to be visited,
but to study tbe commercial and industrial
features of the United Sta es, and to give
the citi sens the privilege and pleasure of
making tbeir acqua ntance.

the center of which were placed tropical
plants and evergreeia, and among these, at
regular distances, were suspended electric
lights, covered witl. different colored shades.

Tbe capital question causes tbe wildest ex

relations with Canada; condemns Irau.l in

ice Re 'oral league George William Curtis
was re-elected president Kesolulions were
adopted criticising tbe manner in whicb the
civil service pledges of the Republican party
have been fulfilled and tbe practice followed
by tbe president of placing tbe appointments
at tbe disposal of partisan leaders, thus en
abling tbem to debauch constituencies and

lation of pledges, the resolutions say, is tbe
removal of thousands of public officers, espe
cially in tbe postal service, for mere partisan
reasons, and especially of men trained by
years of faithful service and universally rec
ognised to lie peculiarly fitted for tbeir sev
erai positions, ana whose only fault was
tbeir unwillingness to seek the favor of in

Columbus, O., Oct 3. Hon. John Mc-
Bride, president of tbe National Progressive
Union of Miners and Mine Laborers, bas ad
dressed an open letter to Governor Joseph
W. Fifer, of Illinois, in response to one
written by W. L, Scott, in which the latter
gentleman endeavored to sustain the posi
tion he hss assumed regarding the present
mining situation in Illinois. After a brief
statement of the situation previous to tbe
publication of the Scott's letter, Mr. Mc-
"Being willing to accept equitable condi
tions and prices, and to effect an honorable
settlement of the present strike, the follow
ing is offered :
First, To work the second or thick coal
vein at Spring Valley for the price paid at
Streator, namely, ?3 cents per ton; this
too, in the face of tha fact that the mine is
yet in the crop coal, is full of faults and up
to this time has cost the company by their
own admission, over tl per ton for mining it
"Second, Believing that Mr. Scott will ad
mit tbe fact that more labor is required to
mine a ton of coal in the third vein at Spring
Valley than in the thick coal in Streator,
we will agree to mine his thin coal for the
price paid tbe thick coal miners at Straator,
provided the company will do the brushing
and building; or. third.
n e will agree to an adjustment of prices
and conditions such as may be determined
by arbiiratioit, or by an agreemant to joint
ly investigate, and be governed by the facte
developed by such investigation. "
Mr. McHride presents an exhunstive argu-.
ment in answer to Mr. Scott, and presents
facts and figures whicb seem hard to dispute.
Tbey show tbat while Mr. Scott professes a
willingness to pay as much for mining as his
competitor in northern Illinois be ignores
other and more imortant fields surround
ing him, confining himself to a comparison
o: earning ability of miners employed at
ripring ulley and Braid wood. They fur
ther say they do not believe Mr. Scott's ar
gument is practical, and know tbat if it was
applied in a general way it would close Mr.
Scott's mines and his customers would pur
chase from more favored fields.
