important discovery that Mrs. Jenness

It is considered a disgrace for a Mexi
can lady to earn her own living. The
men do the cookint; and male servants do
the housework . If a young lady should
learn stenography anil typewriting rr
should try in any manner to earn her on n
living, she would be ostracised from so
ciety. There are many heiresses there,
and there are many Mexican adventurers
who make their living marrying them.
They are handsome, indolent spend
thrifts, and the ladies fall in love with
them. A Mexican woman's beauty fades
early, and when a wealthy heiress mar
ries one of these men she never lives
long. When she dies her husband invar
iably marries another wealthy girl. One
man in the City of Mexico married three
heiresses in quick succession. He became
one of the richest men in that part of the
country, but what a spendthrift he was!
Once he visited the United States, and at
eyery city he stopped, instead of writing
home, he would telegraph long messages.
At one place his telegraph bill was $900.
This is but a sample of his extravagance.
He would lose fortunes at the gambling
table. He was finally killed in a quarrel
Thk fortune of a celebrated gypsy has

uas, as uer own exclusive properly, an
estate worth f 4,Ihm,(mm. The name of
the dead millionaire was Blylhc, and the
following account of his remarkable
career shows now strange and exciting
was his life with its usual happenings, its
remaikable ups and downs: Iilylhe was a
gypsy. Hid name was Gordon. His
great grandfather was Jean Gordon, con
nected with the Meg Merriles of Walter
Scott's novel, and he was a descendant of
John Young, famed in Ayrshire as
highwayman. In 18:52 Blythe was one
of a gang of men who captured a whal
ing bark off nobartown. They took
possession , of the boat and made
their way to Valparaiso. Blythe
and five associates were captured by
a British gunboat and sentenced to Nor
folk island. lie escaped and made bis
way to San Francisco, where he took the
name of Blythe. He then took up his
abode among the miners and won a small
fortune at cards, which he invested in
real estate. The venture proved a suc
cess, and his money rolled rapidly up.
During the trial of the cause through
which the property was awarded, nine
teen claimants appeared before the court,
many of them representatives of well
known English and Scotch families, yet
it is said that it was necessary to guard
the girl to protect her from attempts up
on her life, which were feard. Such is
the desire for money that respectable
people claimed untruthfully relationship
with him and threatened his daughter.

Saturday troin 9 a. m. to 10 p. m. the
twelve men who are supposed to have the
traffic interests of the country by the tail
were in secret conclave at the Terre Haute
house; and all day long that place was
thronged by reporters and others with a
mind to find out what was oing on. 'sit

adjourned they left the matter oi a strike

be given the Knights of Labor in the
hands of a committee of three Morrisey,
Downey and Debs. This committee did
not announce any plan Saturday, and yes
terday the only one at work was Debs,
who locked himself up for eight hours,
writing a report, it is presumed, which
will lie considered to-day. At S p. m. yes
terday the committee was in session con

What the Federation Cannot Io.
There is probably some mistake in the
public mind as to what the Federation
can do, it being taken for granted that
it can just conclude to order out every
man connected with it, grievance or no
grievance. This is not so. Neither of the
bodies federated can be ordered to strike
unless one of them has a grievance which
the employers refuse to redress. That is
the constitution, and the strike cannot be
ordered for the whole Federation except by
a unanimous vote of the council. The
question is consequently complicated. Hut
if the council finds that it cannot order
out its men without overriding the consti
tution; it will, without question, come to
the relief of the knight in some other
way that has yet to he determined.
What It Can Do.
There are three courses open to the
Federation. It can call out its members
and thereby increase the numerical pro
portions of the attacking army provid
ing there is a grievance; it cau present a
bill of grievances of its own to Yice
President Webb and his associates, and
thus harass the enemy on its Hank; or it
can make the cause of the knights its
own, by affording them material assist
ance and sustenance, as long as the strug
gle continues. What it will do is not to
lie told at this writing. A telegram sent
to I'owderly by Sartreut Saturday at 10
p. in., was nou-committhl to a degree. It
simply after stating that no decision had
been arrived at prom isps that the inter
ests of the knights will receive due "con
sideration." A Seini-OIHelal Announcement
It Was semi-oflicially announced lust

the supreme council would lie made public

POWDERLY ON WEBB AGAIN.
The Master Workman Ioes Not Itelieve
the Vice President's Latest.
New Yoke, Aug. 25 Powderly in a re
ply to ice Presideut Webb's statement,
in which he says that the causes which
led to the discharge of the New York Cen
tral employes were drunkenness, incapac
ity, insubordination, etc., begius by prac
tically calling W ebb a liar. He then pro
ceeds to say that Webb relies upon the
statements of snbordi nates in regard to
the men. One of the subordinates is fore
man John llriggs. Powderly submits the
affidavits of several men who allege that
they were required to pay t a month to
their boss in order to keep their positions
under Briggs; also, that the use of liquor
was condoned if the liquor was shared
with the boss.
NomethinK More to the Point.
Powderly says that by refusing an in
vestigation Webb has made it impossible
to expose such abuses, which are going on
under bis nose. Powderly then quote
some utterances of Depew in favor of ar
bitration. He also asserts that reliable
men have informed him that thay were
asked by their foreman if they were
Knights of Labor, and on replying in the
affirmative they were discharged, no other
cause being assigned. An investigation
would have shown whether Webb's in
formants or Powderly's informants told
Reference to Chief Arthur.
Powderly was asked what be thought of
Chief Arthur's utterance. He said he had
wired Arthur when he went to Cleveland
to meet him, but never saw anything of
the chief; nor could he find him anywhere.
Itcferring to Arthur's statement that he
had not heard of engineers taking the
places of striking firemen, I'owderly said:
"Of course he would not hear of such a
thing, but if the Kuigbts of Labor did
anything of the kind I would very quickly
hear of it. Why, his men would just as
soon go to Mr. Depew with their com
plaints as they would to him. All I want
Mr. Arthur to do is to declare which side
he is on. It's an easy matter for Mr. Ar
thur to settle the doubting if he feels in
clined to do so."
I'owderly fines to Albany.
General Master Workman Powderly.Sec
retary Hayes, and John Devlin, of the ex
ecutive hoard of the Knights of Iabor, left
last night for Albany. The hoard will be
joined at Albany by J. J. Holland, and its
future movement will be determined. It
has lieen decided, however, to establish
headquarters here to conduct the opera
tions of the strike. Devlin and Hayes said
that nothing definite had been heard from
TALKING OF MORE TIE-UPS.
All itailways That Handle "Central"
Freight To lie Struck A fain!.
ALBANY, N. Y., Aug. as. That which
is likely to spread the strike on the Cen
tral to other roads is the handling by the
Utter of "Central" freight. "Central"
Tier' the "ew i'ork Central in any
direction as far as the latter line can take
It, and then turned over to a connecting
line to carry the remainder of the way to
its destination, the connecting lino, of
course, lieing paid for it service, not by
the Central, but by the shipper, although
the Central may act as the shipper's agen t
u the matter. On accouut of handling
"Central" freight the Delaware and Hud
son has anot her strike on its hands like
that of last week. But now the railway
otriciala say they will serve shippers by
baudling "Central" freight or know why
tbey can not.
In consequence of this question of
handling "Central", freight the situation
here last night was more critical than at
any stage since the strike began. Despite
the fact that no action has been taken at
Terra Haute it is altogether probable
that by noon to-day every railroad run
ning into this city will be tied up. These
roads are the New York Central, West
shore, Delaware and Hudson, Boston and
Albany, and Fitchburg roads. The Cen
tral and Delaware and Hudson are now
partially crippled. The unions threaten
to shut down every road that handles
freight that conies here over the Central
What the Railway Officials Say.
The railway officials say that they will

THE STRIKE AT CHICAGO.
Stones and Coupling-I'ln Make the Tie
- ITp Secure K pec ted Developments.
ClHCAOO, Ang 25. Betv een 7,0(i0 and
8.000 men were temporarily thrown out
of employment in the stock yards on ac
count of the strike of tbe engineers and
firemen of the Kail way Switching assocl
tion, but if the strike con .in ues at least
15,000 men will be in idleness. One firm
tried to move refrigerator cars by hand, bo
as to enable them to get out a big con
signment of beef, but the instant their
men touched the cars they were set upon
by a gang of switchmen, w io drove them
into the packing house befo-e a fusillade
of coupling-pins and stones.
If the men do not return to work volun
tarily at once on the terms t hat have been
offered them by the railroad superintend
ents the latter will declare the switching
association dissolved. The men, through
their representatives yesterday, said that
they would not resume work until the
engineers were paid 80 cent and (he fire
men 20 cents an hour.' The switching,
etc., at the yards is done by an association
which hires engines 'from the roads and
otherwise is independent of them. Its disso
lution means that the engints will be sent
back to the roads to which they belopg
and the work will be done, if done at all,
by the railways. .
Aye, There's the I:nb.
Hut will it be done t all? That is the
question. The association managers say
yes; the strikers say no. Tie latter de
clare that such action will makea bigger
tangle than ever; and the p ickers seem
to agree with them, and it looks at this
time as though, if the strike is not settled
before dark to-night, the entire packing
industry will probably have to suspend
operations, throwing over 12.000 men into
temporary idleness. The strikers so far
hnve lieen generally successful in prevent
ing packing house employes lrom unload
ing and moving cars.

SENATOR INGALLS' THEOLOGY.
He Asserts the Immortality at the Bosjl
and Existence of a Creator.
Washington Citt, Aug. 25. The senate
did nothing Saturday except listen to
eulogies on the late Senator Beck. As is
always the case when he speaks on a sub
ject, the oration of Senator Ingalls was
one of the most not able. He said in part:
"To exist is exultation, to live forever is
our siiblimest hope. Annihilation, ex
tinction, and eternal death are the fore
boilings of despair. Nations die and races
expire; humuuityaitself 'is destined to ex
tinction. The last man will perish and
the sun will rise upon an earth without
an inhabitant. With the disappearance
of man from the earth all traces of his ex
istence wiH lie lost. Tha great
globe itself, all which It inherits, shall
dissolve, and like thisu nsubstantial page
ant, fade and 'leave not a wrack behind.'
An Omnipotent Intelligence.
"There is an intelligence so vast and en
during that to it the llamiug interval be
tween the birth and death of universes is
no more than the flush of fireflies above
tho meadows of summer; a colossal power
by which these stupendous orbs are
launched in tbe abyss, like bubbles blown
by a child in the morning sun, and whose
sense of justice aud reason cannot be less
potential than those immutable statutes
that are the law of being to the creatures
he has made, and which compel them to
declare that if the only object of creation
is destruction, if infinity is the theater of
an uninterrupted series of irreparable ca
lamities, if the final cause of life is death,
then time is an inexplicable tragedy and
eternity au illogical and indefensible ca
tastrophe. The Promise of Jesus Christ.
"This obsequy U an affirmation
to those who survive that, as our depart
ed associate, contemplating at the close'
of his life the monument or good deeds he
had erected, more enduring than brass
and loftier than the pyramids of kings,
might exclaim, with the Roman poet,
Non omnis nioriar,' so, turning to the
silent and unknown future, he could re
ly, wifh just and seasonable confidence,
upon that most impressive and mo
mentous assurance ever delivered to tha
human race: 'He that believeth in Me,

Ang. 34, 1885. The next lowest tempera
ture was 55 degrees on Aug. 27, 1871 This
Is the nsual drop in the thermometer
which, which, for some mysterious reason
that meteorology has not yet fathomed,'
almost invariably takes place at the same
time in August each year. The fall in
the temperature was aliout a day ahead of
time this year, as it generally takes place
on Aug. 25.
A Visitor from Dakota.
The fall in the temperature this year,
as stated, is below t he average. Sergt. Dunn
told a reporter last night that the cold
wave came from the northwest, where it
developed last Friday morning over North
Dakota. On Thursday morning it was
ceutral in South Dakota and Minnesota,
and reached its maximum in its entire ex
tent at St. Vincent, Minn., where the
thermometer registered 2 degrees below
freezing, and frost fell throughout the
entire northwestern region. On Saturday
morning the cold covered all the central
valleys and hike region, and it was spread
over the Atlantic coast as far south as
IliK Drop in the Mercury.
In this city the mercury in the signal
service thermometer made the extraordi
nary drop of twenty-oue degrees in fifteen
hours. Temperature began to fall Satur
day afternoon at 8 o'clock, when the ther
mometer registered 72 degrees. The mer
cury fell rapidly until it reached its low
est point at 51 degreesat rto'clock yesterday
morning. Then it began to rise slowly. It
touched r3 degrees at 9 o'clock last night,
aud was still going upward. People who
were out of doors on Saturday afternoon
did not need an official explanation of the
fact that it grew cold very suddenly. A
brisk northwest wind whirled down and
chilled everybody. At night folks slept
under blankets, and yesterday they came
out of doors wearing their fall undercloth

Milton, Pa. Aug. 25. The temperature
that was up in the eighties Friday after
noon, with occasional rHshcsof lightning,
changed shortly after midnight, and by 5
o'clock Saturday morning there was a

the town. The early freight trains on

"PINKERTONS" IN ENGLAND.
I.alxr Leader Hums ftrnns (Tireatly V.
filed Over the Proposition.
IxiMMiN, Aug. 25. A large meeting 1
dock laborers was held yesterday, at
which John Burns, the creator of th
union and who is looked up to by them as
almost su pel human, delivered a spirited
harangue. He referred to the proposed
union of ship owners and said he had
heard that they were considering the ad
visability of establishing a "Pinkerton
force similar to that which is employe)

greeted with tumultuous applause.
In necessarily Ksciled.
Puirns' remark wen; probably intended
chiefly to rouse the feelings of the men
and stimulate Iheir enthusiasm, for he
knows as well as any one that tho Pinker
ton system would not le tolerated in Kng
land. The chief of the Ixindon police
would lie obliged to retire in disgrace if he
should 'admit his iniioleucy to protect
property by allowing the employment of
private armed police by business concerns.
Nor would atjy corporation think of going
to the expense of hiring such a fori-, for
nothing is more certain under English
law than that every penny of damage
done to projierty by strikers or rioters can
be recovered promptly by the injured
party from the pubic funds. Nor does
the necessity of employing private police
exist here to the extent that it seems to in
the United States, for there is not the
same hesitancy here io calling upon the
military to aid the civil authorities.
Have a Corner nn I.alnr.
Matters are different in Kngland in an
other way. The trades unions practically
include all the workiugmen of the king
dom. When, therefore, as in Wales, a
British railway is stopped by a strike, it
need not expect to replace the men aud go
on with its business. It is a question only
of whether the railway or the strikers can
hold out the longest. Strikes have al
ready driven much shipping from the port
of Lotidoa; so much so, that ship owners
as well as dock owners Are alarmed, and
are looking aliout them as to rrb.it can be
teas for relief.
Wm. Hutchinson, of

severe attack of cholera morbus and
