Spalding Racer, Model No. 724.
The '.'Spaldlng Racer" that Carper rode
in the races last Saturday was more
highly complimented than any wheel on
the track. This wheel was not received
until late Thursdav evening before the
races, and it won THREE PRIZES, more
than some who had been |on the track
lor months training.
The "Spaldlng Racer" only weighs 19
pounds with racing tires, and 21 pounds
with road tires, and not 24 pounds, as
some of onr neighbors reported.
The "Spaldlng" can't be beat. It Is
tho most graceful wheel on the market.

HIS STATEMENT IN THE SENATE.
SENATOR JONES SAYS HE HAS

ACTION WILL BE?SENATOR

EVER?GORMAN WILL MAKE "A
SPEECH IN DEFENSE OF THE
Washington, June 2.?Senator Smith,
ot New Jersey,"occupied the attention of
the Senate for exactly one minute and
lif ty-two seconds yesterday. During that
time he took occasion to deny most posi?
tively that he had ever speculated in
sugar stock, using the following terse
?'Mr. President: During my absence
from the Senate the other day I ascertain
from the Congressional Record that in a
very remarkable deliverance by the Sena?
tor from South Carolina (Mr. Tlllman),
he became sponsor for a 'newsoaper clip?
ping in which my name was mentioned
in connection with the sugar schedule in
the pending tarlfT bill. It is only neces?
sary for me to say that the statement in
the newspaper clipping In question Is ab?
solutely und unqualifiedly untrue. I have
not, during this^'seBsion of Congress,
bought or sold, directly or Indirectly, a
single share of stock, nor at any time
prior to this when~any legislation aftect
Ing the value of sugar or sugar stock was
While Senntor Smith read this state?
ment from type-written manuscript, Sen?
ator Tlllman sat very near him and
watched him closely, bnt did not under?
take to reply. This episode was the only
reference in the Senate yesterday to the
propsed sugar investigation und it is
barely possible that the matter will not
come up to-day.
Senator Jones, of Nevada, who is the
chairman of the committee on contingent
expenses, to which the Tlllman resolution
has been referred, will leave this after?
noon for Philadelphia, to witness the
graduation of his daughter at Brjrn Mawr
College, and .the ^resolution will not be
acted upon until he returns.
''I have not yet decided what shall be
done," said the'Senator yesterday, "but
I am in favor of having some committee,
like the judiciary committee, frame a
rule which shall be the guide for the Sen?
ate in the future and 'which shall spec fy
that no Investigation shall be had unless
a Senator demands It or unless some spe?
cific charge is made by a responsible per
"But are no* the gentlemen who signed )
their names'to these newspaper dispatches I
"O, they may be," "said the Senator,
"but If they should be called as witnesses
they would simply |suy thnt they heard
some rumors on the street and printed
the gor.slp that they heard. That would
he the extent of their knowledge. There
is nothing definite In what they have
The. committee yesterday decided to
take time to look into the charges. The
fact that Senator Smith, the only mem?
ber of the Senate ^mentioned by name as
having engaged in such speculation,made
denial in the Senate of the charge was
noted in the committee meeting, and this
fact, coupled with Senator Aldrich's gm
eral denial In behalf of the finance com?
mittee, taken'into consideration In con?
nection with the resolution, was produc?
tive of some talk in the committee of an
indefinite postponement as the wisest
course. The committee therefore con?
cluded to postone making any recommen?
dation for the present.
When Senator Tillman heard yesterday
that Mr. Jones was going "out of the city
he went to htm and naked him why he
did not report back the resolution. He
talked very plainly, but did not exact any
promise that the desired action would be
forthcoming. Senator Tillman, there?
fore, is all the more determined [to bring
the matter again to the attention of the
Senate, although he will give the commit
tee r little more leeway in 'the matter of
time. "As for Senator Smith's denial,"
said Mr. Tillman yesterday, "it doea not
remove the necessity for an investigation.
On'the contrary, it only makes one more
necessary und desirable. The question is
now one of veracity between Mr. Creel
man, who wrote the original dispatch,and
Mr. Smith. We ought not to let the mat?
ter hang up in the air like Mahomet's
There is said to bo a growing feeling
against an Investigation. The rank and
file of the Senate will bo willing to do
whatever the ol^er and more experienced
lenders suggest, but the latter are op?
posed to having the Inquiry begun. This
reluctance was more .manifest yesterday
than at any other time. As cne Repub?
lican Senator said: "We will bo criticised
if we do, and criticised if 'we don't, and
as we have been pretty well blackened al?
ready, 1 do not suppose it could he worse
if we decided not\to have an Investiga?
tion." It is said that Senrttor Gorman
has determine'1 to mako a speech in de
fense of the'Senate and opposing any in?
vestigation, and ",that Senator Faulkner
wi'l take the same ground. Senator
Jones, of Nevada, even if he reports the
resolution, will pobubly vote against

NO SUGAR INVESTIGATION.
The Senate Committee Will Turn
Down Tillman's Resolution.
Washington, June 2?It is now certain
that there will be no investigation or

.The resolution offered by Senator Till
man, calling for an 'investigation of the
charges that Senators had speculated in
sugar steck, will be reported adversely
from the committee to which It has been
referred. Even should the committee re?
port favorably on it the report would be
voted down by the Senate. .Mr. Tillman

SPANISH MINISTRY RESIGNS
Owing to Refusal of Liberals to Attend
Meetings of the Co-tes.
Madrid, Juno 2.?Senor Canovas del
Castillo this afternoon tendered to the
queen regent the resignation of himself aud
all the other members of the cabinet.
This step was taken because the liberal
senators refuse to take any part in the de?
liberations of the eortes. Their action is
due to the personal encounter on May 21
between tho Duke of Teutan and Profes?
sor Comas, a llbera' senator, when the
duke slapped tho face of the senator dur?

tion of tho Morgan belligerency resolu?

WILL APPEAL THE CASE.
Washington. June 2.?Senator Tillman
was asked to day about the decision of
Judge Simonton in the South Carolina
dispensary case. He said'that the State
undoubtedly would appeal the case to the
supreme court of ,the United States.
"There is notling else to do," lie said, "so
far as this case is concerned. The State
has exhausted her present resources and
must wait upon the supreme- court and
Congress." Ho said the decision practi?
cally annulled tho Wilson act of 1800, and
that if it should bo sustained by the su?
preme court nothing would be left but to
get Congress 'to pass another law that
could bo mnde"blnding. This, Senator
Tillman says, he will use his ^best efforts

Significant Reduction of Employes
Pittsburgh Juue '2.?A 10 per cent, cut
in wages affectiog all men not under the
amalgamated scale was ordered at Jones
& Laughlin's American Iron Works to?
day. As a result the open hearth workers
and some other employes, in all. about
200, refused to work last night.* ? The
firm employs nearly 8,000 men.
The stories of the number oilmen who
nuit work are conflicting. At 'he South
Side office r. superintendent thought
about 250 mon had quit work, but these
had not crippled the plant. The work?
men claim that between 400 and 500 have
refused to work for the reduction. The
superintendent said he would rather havo
the old employes resume, but if they do
not new men will be employed to take
their places. About 2,000 men are affected
by the cut.
Tho laborers have been paid '$1.25 per
day, and these ha^e been cut to $1.13 1-2.
The present reduction is significant, In?
asmuch as the amidgaraated steel scnle
comes up for [consideration this month.
Tho present "scale expires "July 1. If
Jones \V Lauchlin refuse to slign the amal?
gamated scale there is'no telling where
the trouble will end.
W. L. King, of the firm, was asked to?
day if the reduction did not Indicate that
the now-amalgamated scale will be re?
jected when it comes up for consideration
aud that the firm will demand a reduc?
tion of the present wages.
He said: "That is tho assumption."
Mr. King added: "We have been hop?
ing since last fall that wo "would not bo
compelled to make a reduction,but prices
have had a downward tendency, and wo
put it off as long as we could, hoping
business might improve.
"We must either operate our "plant at
these prices or close-down. Thousands of
mechanics and laborers apply every week
for work and it will bo no^trouble to get
men. Our orders have largely been from
hand to mouth, and It has ^been difficult
to net orders to keep the men at work."
The Commercial.' Gazette to morrow
will say: "The furnacemen throughout
the Shenaugo and Hahonlng Valleys con?
template a general strike about.Tuly 1 for
Increased wages. Tho men have no or?
ganization as yet, but arc insisting on
having organizers 'from the Knights of
Labor sent among them.
The plan for the strike, which 'will in?
clude 10,000 men, is to wait ;untll tho
weather gets at summer heat when it
will be impossible for new men to do this
class of work, aud It is belloved the fur

Heading, Juue 2.?Between 500 and 000
employes of tho Beading "Iron Company
quit work this morning because of the
leduction which wont into force to-day.
The sheet mill, puddle mill, rolling
mill and Oley street mil', are involvod.
The reduction does not affect "Mie 'Scott
Works, which at presont has considera?
ble work on hand. The men claim it is
not a striko, many stopping.'work, pro
fcring to wait until better wages could he
offered. At the rolling mill,in tho lower
section of the city,the last heat was made
at 8 o'clock this morning, ?vhon the en
tie plant closed down.
? There nro about forty puddlers at this
place, who say their teduction'was from
$2.70 to $2.40 per ton, and that after their
helpers were paid it would bo impossible
to make ?2 per day. Tho helpers, roll
hands, heaters and laborers were given a
cut of about 10 per cent. This brought
common labor down to 1)0 cents^per day.
At tho pipe mill some llntshors aud fur?
nace men quit on Monday evening, 1 their
reduction ranging from 10 to 20 por cent.
The finishers were reduced 10 per cent,
which made a diflerenco of 20 cents a day
in their wages.
