1'nblUNhinx statement Kade by the
The Union says that the increased duty
on tin plate will not "go into effect nntil
July 1, 1891, by which time this measure
of protection will have put this great in
dustry on Its feet." This is a remarkable
statement in view of the present and the
past. If the tin industry of this country,
which consists of a single mine in Dako
ta, can be put on its feet in less than a
year, what can be said of the various in
dustries that have been living oft the peo
pie for years and years in the past? If
this newly discovered tin mine can ac
complish such results in such a short
s puce of time, so as to live and prosper
without government aid, what can be
thought of the monstrous robbery which
the people have borne in the past under
the plea of tbe eastern manufacture that
it was and is necessary to keep up the
taxation, else tbe factories would have to
be closed .
Suppose this statement to be true, and
that the mine in Dakota would furnish
all tbe tin required in this country, and
even if it did not, that pig tin would be
brought into this country free and worked
into plates, in what way would that ben
efit the American workman? It is stated
that Mr. McEinley says that this iodus
try would furnish steady employment for
24,000 men . Admit it for the sake of argu
ment. Ho many Americans would be
employed? The probability is that not
one would ever be found there. This
kind of labor is of the vilest character
In the first place, it has taken genera
tions to establish the art of dipping sheet
metal in tin in Wales. There a consid
ersble number of people have acquired
the necessary knowledge for such work
by continually living in the mines and
working at it from childhood almost
Tbe occupation is far from healthy, and
tbe pay is miserably small. It has been
computed that there are not more than
30,000 persons engaged in the making of
all the tin plate that is used tbrougbou
the world, and these 30, (XK) include men
women and children. In these mines
girls between 12 and 14 are seen at work
They are sickly, frail and enunciated, and
yet they will carry full boxes of tin
weighing 108 pounds, resting them on
their hips when their strength otherwise
fails. The cause of ill health working
at this industry comes from the pickling
rooms. The employes even lose their
teeth, and appear like little beasts rather
than human beings. The rank odor of
the oils, of itself, would be a sufficient
This is the kind of labor the American
is invited to. But he would never be in
vited even. These Welsh people would
be brought to this country and paid star
vation wages what they had been used
to getting and the only persons bene
fitted by this enterprise would be the
British owners of the mines.
But as a matter of fact did not the
tariff bill, as recently passed in the sen
ate, provide for a duty of four cents i
pound on tin ore? And as there is but
one mine in thisTcountry of any impor
tance what will prevent its owners from
having a monopoly with the four cents
pound tax on tbe raw matt rial? Injwhat-
ever way the matter is looked at it pre

Washington Crrr, Sept. 15 A tele
gram from New York says: Secretary Win

purchase $16,000,000 of 4 percent, bonds
and prepay the interest on between $30,
000,000 and $60,4)0.000 of 6 per cents,, in
order to relieve the stringency In the
money market. The order was issued last
night giving notice that offers for the
bonds to be purchased will te received at
12 o'clock noon next Wednesday. Wln-
dom said last uight that be had named
16,000.0(O as the amount ot bond to be
purchased because the entire available
surplus is now $52,000,000, and the out-

consume it all.
Not the Settled Tolley.
The offer of 4 per cents, he says, is ex
ceptional and is not to he regarded as the
policy of the administration, for with
this purchase, if it Is made, the treasnry
goes out of the purchase of that class of
bonds and will hereafter apply the cur

The Treasury Not Hoarding Money.
"The secretary took occasion while here
to demonstrate the falsity of a report that
the treasury bad been hoarding money
since this time a year ago, and made the
Dllicial statement that on Sept. 1, 1889,
there was of net cash in the treasury
$141,000,000, while at the same date this

mistaken assertion sometimes made that
tbe treasury either is now, or has recently

of business have borne but little fruit.

"An excess of disbursement over re

Washington City, Sept. 15. Congress
man Grosvenor of Ohio, appeared yester
day before the bouse committee on civil
service reform to siinnlenmnt hiu testi
mony respecting the appointments made
by the civil service commission from his
district. His comnlaiut in brief was that
persons appointed, as alleged, from the
district bud no residence in that district
and that Commissioner Roosevelt had
"shamefully and criminullv misrenre-
aented his (Grosvenor's) statement;" that
the commissioners had hounded him
through the newspapers, set spies on his
track, ana tried, to injure him, and that
until they proved a statement that they
had put in his mouth, tl ey were falsifiers
Commissioner tvit a n's Keply.
The particular case ref arred to Was that
of a young man nanud Putnam, who,
Grosvenor said, had no residence at all
in his district, yet he was credited there
to, and when be (Grosvinor) had denied
the residence the com in I tsiouers had sent
abroad the statement th it he (Grosvenor)
had indorsed Putnam's statement of resi
dence. Commissioner Lyman, in reply to
Grosvenor, said that un ess the question
was raised, an applicant s claim as to res
idence was always accet ted by the com
mission; that when the question was
raised in this case Putnam had written a
letter to the commission reiterating his
claim of residence in Grtavenor's district
and stating that Grosve aor himself had
indorsed that claim. The committee then
postponed further inquii y into the work

New York, Sept 15. A quiet wedding
was solemnized in an ante-room of the
Association ha'l, Twenty-third street and
Fourth avenue, at 10 o'clock last evening
which was the happy finale of a romance
of no Bligbt interest The bridegroom
was George W. Campbell, of Chicago,
the son of the millionaire stock dealer
James II. Campbell of that city, and the
bride was Miss Helen Dodd, daughter of
Thomas Dodd, of West Derby, near Liver
pool, England. Yesterday Miss Dodd ar
rived on the steamer City of Rome and
was welcomed by her prospective hus
band, whom she had not seen for three
years. When Mr. Campbell was only 15
years of age he ran away from bis home
in Chicago, actuated by a boy's desire
"to be a cowboy," and remained for live
years upon the plains. It was not until
the fall of 1885 that the protestations of
his father aud his friends induced him to
return to his home.
Nettled lwn to Business.
He was then installed as chief salesman
for the James H. Campbell company, and
traveled extensively for bis father's firm.
In 187 he went to England on business,
and it was there that he met Miss Dodd.
In August, 1887. be met several of his
former companions who were then travel
ing and exhibiting with "Mexican Joe's"
wild west show, a lesser organization
which was at that time competing with
Col William F. Cody, "Buffalo Bill."
Complying with the wish of these friends,
young Campbell agreed to give three ex
hibitions of his skill at "roping." During
one of sjie exhibitions a box overlooking
the arena was occupied by an elderly gen
tleman and a young lady.
The Fallen Handkerchief.
The latter became somewhat excited nt
tbe novel entertainment and dropped her
handkerchief into the ring as Mr. Camp
bell dashed by. Ijulck as a Hash tbe cow
boy leaned from his saddle, gracefully
picked up the fallen bankerchief, and
handed it to tbo lady, wheeling and rising
in his stirrup as he did so. After the per
formance the elderly geutleman was pre
sented to Mr. Campbell. Explanations
followed and on learning ot the local
standing of the Chicagoan he was invited
to the home of the gentleman, who was
Thomas Dodd. The lady was his daugh
ter, tbe present bride. After several weeks
sojonrn Mr. Campbell left West Derby
aud returned to Chicago. Soon afterward
rumors of ths engagement were rife.
Eventually an agreement was reached.
ana it was decided that the marriage
should be postponed for a year or two.
Cupid Was at the Helm.
"All optosition was receutly removed, and
last night the engagement, so romantic
ally begun, culminated in a happy mar
riage. 1 he lady's father was unable to
accompany his daughter, but placed ber
in the care of Capt John R. Dewar, the
superintendent of the Guion steamshiD
lina The captain, a life-long friend of the
family, was faithful to his trust, and was
the first to offer post-nuptial congratula
tions in tbe little ante-room last evening.
When Miss Dodd and Capt. Dewar ar-
on the City of Koine last evening they
were met by young Campbell, and the
party was at once driven to the Grand
Central hotel. Mr. Campbell hal regis

The party consisted of the newly-married

who acted as best man; the latter's sister,

Atlantic City, N. J., caused such a sensa
tion a year ago. Mr. Green says that Mr.
Hamilton had bought a ranch about two
months ago and made it an outfitting
place for park tourists. On his arrival
he found that Mr. Hamilton had been
gone ou a hunting trip for five days. The
next day Mr. Green and his party started
to bunt for Mr. Hamilton. About thirty
miles from the ranch Mr. Green found his
body in Snake river and bis horse and dog
a short distance away. Mr. Hamilton
was identified beyond all doubt by Mr.
Green, who had the. body taken to the
ranch and notified Mr. Hamilton's fam
ily. A Career Well Begun.
Robert Rdy Hamilton was born in New
York and was the son of Gen. Schuyler
Hamilton, a grandson of Alexander Ham
ilton. After graduating from Columbia
college and the Columbia ltw school he
began the practice of law. He was elected
to tbe assembly in 1N81 as a Republican
from the Eleventh district, and was re
elected In 1881, 1SK7 andlSSS. He spent
much of his time in traveling, both in
this country and abroad, ami was a mem
ber of the Union League club, the Uni
versity club and the Tuxedo club.
The Blonde Woman Appears.
About July L 1889, Mr. Hamilton hired
rooms in the Noll eottage at Atlantic
City. He was accoinpanie I by a blonde
woman of middle age, a nurse, nnd an 8-moths-old
baby. On Aug. 'X there was a
quarrel between Hamilton's companion,
then known variously as Eva Maun aud
Mrs. Hamilton, and the nurse, Mary Ann
Donnelly. Tbe nurse was seriously
wounded in the abdomen with Mrs. Ham
ilton's ivory-handled dagger, and Mrs.
Hamilton was arraigned in court upon a
charge of felonious and atrocious assault
Mrs. Hamilton was convicted, and is now
serving a two-years' sentence in Trenton
prison. The nurse recovered
Fooled with a False Heiress.
On Sept 3 Mrs. Swinton, the so-called
mother of Mrs. Hamilton, and her son,
Joshua Mann, both of whom had been
locked np at New York city on
charges of conspiracy to defraud, told In
spector Byrnes that the baby, Beatrice
Ray, whom Hamilton believed to be his
and for the sake ot whom be had married
the woman, had been bong lit from a mid
wife in that city for $10. They said they
had had to try four babies before they got
one to suit. During the examination of
the conspirators Mr. Hamilton testified.
Where He Made His Mistake.
He said in the Tombs police court that
he had met Eva four years before in a
house of disrepute in New York city, that
he had laVished money npon her and that
be bad finally married her for the sake of
the child she pretended was his. Mrs.
Swinton and Mann were held for the
grand jury a'hn subsequently indicted for
conspiracy and grand larceny, bnt the in
dictmenta were quashed. That they had
profited by their association with Mr.
n amnion, rnrougn bis wile, was nn
dnbitable, but it was found impracticable
to establish the technical charge.
Salt for Annulment of Marriage.
On Oct 8 Mr. Hamilton applied in the
supreme court for annulment of his mar
rlage on the ground of fraud. In the com
plaint Mr. Hamilton said his wife's
maiden name was Evangeliug L. Steele,
and that they were married on Jan. 17,
1889. His consent to the marriage, he
said, had been obtained solely tijtoii ber
false representation that she had given
birth to a child of which lie was the father.
The complaint further stated that at tbe
time oi tne marriage tne oeienaant had a
husband living, although details of the
former marriage could not then be pro
cured. Prospective Complications.
The case was lost upon a motion made
by tbe woman's counsel for a larger al
lowance than tuat which.her husbaud con
tinued to pay her. She wanted the money,
she said, to enable her to defend the suit,
twing herself at a disadvantage in prison.

there is not much doubt that the heirs
