Aeittttion which has been going on for
several weeks among the workmen in tbe
harness shops at Rock Island arsenal over
a proprsed new scale of wages, has re
suited in new complications and threat
ened dt monstrations of a serious nature
on the part of tbe men. Tbe work is
now done by the piece, and the men
claim that while some of the harness
makers can earn f 4 day,.others are un
able to earn as much as $3. So a com
m it tee was appointed to present a peti
tion to Col. Whittemore, and this was
done la it Monday. But the committee
did more it appears. Three workmen in
tbe shop claim to have been injured in
some way by Inspector Dan C. Leonard
and the wage committee in conjunction
with others preferred charges Bgainst
him for this. Col. Whittemore's reply
was posted in the shop Friday, lie
stated i bat the wage question would be
conside-cd, but as the charges against
Leonard were baaed upon alleged mis
conduct occurring several years ago Ic-
fore Col. Whittemore entered into com
mand of tbe arsenal, Ibey would simply
be filed and considered in case of further

This rejdy failed to satisfy the commit
tee, and it waited upon the colonel at his
office aain Saturday afternoon. When
tbe colonel insisted that his unswer had
aimed to do justice to both parties and
that it as final the chairman of the com
mittee. James C. McDonald, of Daven
port, flew into a passion, and indulged in
language which even the fellow members
of the committee say was very improp
er. Tho colonel at once notified him
of his discharge and directed an orderly
to conduct him from the office, but
it took more than one man to eject him,
as he prizes himself upon his physical
powers ( nd is not afraid to demonstrate
Now the question seems to be wholly
on McDonald's reinstatement. Saturday
afternoon Mayor McConocbie went over
by request of the committee to intercede
for McDonald, but the colonel failed to
see wbeiein the mayor of Rock Island
should consider it his duty to interfere
on behalf of a Davenport workman and
gave him no satisfaction. Saturday
evening a largely attended meeting of
workmen employed In the shops was held
at Turner ball and resolutions adopted
praying for McDonald's reinstatement.
These were to have been presented to
Co!. Wh ttemore today, but had not this
afternoon. Ths most unfortunate fea
ture of tbe affair is that it springs
from the anti-papal and Catholic trou
bles, which have been so much discussed
in this community of late.

Points In Corn Culture.
Experiments made at tbe Ohio Acri-
cultural station during past seasons
throw considerable lieht nnon. if thev
do not entirely settle, some points in the
cultivation of corn abont which farm
ers are not entirely agreed either in the
ory or practice. As cultivated at the
station the following appears to have
been prettv well established. As a cl.uw
the large yellow dent varieties were the
most prounctive. Large white dents
take second nl.ve. In the flint vaHtH
the large white flints take the lead, fol
lowed by mixed flints, and these by yel
low flints. Taken as a whole or as indi
vidual varieties the flint coma ato nnt a
profitable class for Ohio lands unless it
should be in some of the northern sec
tions. In seven Years' experiments in Wr
shallow planting the average results
show an advantage in favor of planting
one inch rather than two inches deep.
The greatest amount of marketable corn
was produced where the stalks averaged
twelve inches apart; the variations in
yield were slitrht. whether rla.ntri nnA
grain every twelve inches, two every
twenty-tour, three every thirty-six, or
ronr every torty-eight inches. Throe
ears trial has not nv
marked differences in the reproductive
qualities of corn from the bntts. middle
or tips of tbe ears. Whenever any vari
ation existed it was in favor of middles
and tiis and against the butts. The
average results of two years' experi
ments favored deen cultivation ratriBr
than shallow, and indicated that corn
should be cultivated more frequently in
a dry season than in a wet or ordinary
The Correct Bee Space.
"There is undoubtedly a certain space
which the bees are least inclined to fill
with wax or propolis. WTiat, according
to yonr own experience, is the exact
measurement of the correct bee spacer"
The foregoing query was recently asked
and answered in The American B.-e
Mrs. L. Harrison replied: Three-
eighths of an inch: possibly a shade
A. J. Cook answered: Scarce I of an
inch; abont 5-16 of an inch.
O. M. Doolittle said: Five-sixteenths
of an inch.
James Ileddon replied: The same that
Fattier Langstroth gave nsover thirty
years ago scant of an inch, or, moi e
exact, 5-16 of an inch above tha frame;
I of an inch will do very well at the ends
of the frames, and inch is all right at
the bottom, below the frames.
J. E. Pond said: It is impossible to fix
frames in practice so tliat they will space
exactly throughout the whole hive. I
nse the ten frame Langstroth hive, 14$
inches wide, spacing the frames so that
a inch dummy will fit closely in one
