PRICE 2 CEKTS IN HOCKING VALLEY. TROUBLES OF A MINING FIRM. Compelled to Suspend Work by a Railroad Company For Which the Miners Cannot Give Thanks. Njcw SruiiTsULHi:, O., Nov. Kind A Co. h;ive becti compelled to cloe-their mine on account of the railroad company re!ufin t jjive cars to load. They h id been employ ing 2ui cniou miners and it look4 a$ though a syndicate of the Hocking Valley Hail road Coin .any tutvu cornhiaed to drive them out - "of the valley. The real motive of the Hock ing Valley j.oj le U not known, but it is the opinion of the miner that they have been playing into the hand of th syndicate man aern, ho object to Ilend running theStraiU title mint. ItMia. impossible carry out the threat that they would starve Union men oat, o hmj a thw mine was in operation. Mr. Uend ha.s been a friend of the miners in this valley. When the rtrike ag-vint the syndicates on account of the redaction of wages, broke out, he contributed ..V)0 to relieve the families of impoverished work men in this place. It is said that at other Ijints also he w.-.s literal to the starving men, women and children. Ho maintained a living rate of wages, and frequently de clared that the miners were entitled to the sympathy of all fair-minded men. He stated thi'.t it wa nothing le:;s tlum infii inotn that pauper", from abroad, should be brought here to starve na tivel miners into subjection. This is not the first attempt made by the syndicate to taJce revenue on Mr. Keud. A few weeks ago they Hent emissaries among his own miners and by clever work indaced them to o out on e strike. Mr. Kend, who was in Chicago, was telegraphed for by his superintendent, and responded promptly. He came home, called a meeting of his employes and ex plained the situation to them. They saw at once that he had been played upon and re turned to work. s Chicago, Nov. !. A reporter who called i at Hand's office to-day was informed that that gentleman had left for New Straitsville, ()., yesterday morning. He had been advised by the superintendent of his mine at that Iint that the Hocking Valley Koad had re fused to give him cart to load. Those in cliargu of the office in this city had no fur ther information in regard to the trouble. Bloodshed Feared. Cleveland, Nov. LC. The greatest anxie ty is felt here over the situation in the Hock ing Valley. Late to-night it was learned that the colonel of the Fifth regiment, locat ed in this city was quietly at work enlisting a company to prepare for active service in the Hocking Valley. After waiting for many days, Gov. Iloadly has concluded to call out the militia. The miners are having a hard time of It. They can take their choice, being arretted or shot down by poldiers. In case these schemes of the Hocking magnates fail, as a last resort the poverty-stricken miners are to bo starved out. The situation is hourly growing more desjx rate, and blood shed is feared. CROUCH'S LIFE INSURED. ? A Witness Testifies that Holcomb Made the Application. Jackson, Mich., Nov. 20". At the opening of the court this forenoon Geo. Bolles was again put on the stand, and kept there by both sides till noon, but very little new tes timony was brought otit.

UNION WITHOUT HARMONY. Cold-Water Sauce Not Relished on Thanksgiving Turkey. Iijon, N. Y., Nov. ttf. For several years it has bt-en the cu-sUm of the citiens of lliou to hold union fcervices onTLauk-giving Day. The Frerbjterians would throw open their church one year, the Uapti-t.s the next and the Methodists would follow thd example et by the Presbyterians and Baptists. Hitherto the bet of good feeling Las prevailed and the three congregations have united with a will. This year the St. John element in pol- itic bis edged its way into religion al-o, and the demon of discord las been rampant. This is in the natural sequence of events, the Uapti-trt year, and the pastor of the Presby terian church is the man! who, according to thft llion rule of three. delivers the discourse. That ho will preach from a pulpit whence doctrines of the etficay Df water as an out ward application naturally emanate is a matter of no moment to Republicans who look with disfavor on the St. John move ment. Unfortunately, however, this same clergyman, Rev. M. K. Dunham', has preached tho virtues of water taken internally as a panacea for all the evils of polities and indigestion. While Mr. Duuham has, no doubt, been sincere in his advoeacv of the modern St. John, he has antagonized a large jjortion of earnest tem reraiiee workers, man v of whom will neither contribute to the support of his church nor listen to his preaching. Ihis fcehr g of an tagonism has found vent in hundreds of cir culars of unknown authorship which have been scattered about town. The circulars read ils follows: "Good Renublicans and others who can find anything to feel especially tbanktul about in the results or the late elec tion will, of course, attend services at the Raptist Church on Thanksgiving day and listen to the oration on that occasion. A full attendance of Democrats and Prohibitionists is already assured. A PENITENTIARY BURGLARIZED. i Experts Secure $3,000 From the Jail that Should Hold Them. Bbooklin, N. Y., Nov. 'JG. It has been demonstrated now that thieves cannot only break out of the Kings county penitentiary, but can break into it. The prison looks very secure from the outside, for it is sur rounded by high walls and the windows are protected by stout iron bars. Furthermore, there are watchmen who are supposed to be always around and prepared to resist any at tempted intrusion, a3 well as to prevent any escaie. The idea of an attempt being made by burglars to break into 'the prison would seem to be ridiculous. To the un professional thief it would look like walking directly into tho lion's month. It is not sur prising, therefore, that Warden Green should be slightly vexed when he was informed this morning that burglars had broken into the prison and robbed tho safe in the shoe shop. The burglars entered tho window of the shop on the Carroll street side. They used a stout iron bar or sectional jimmy and pried tho bars of the windows apart. They took upwards of $.'?,000, which the Bay State shoe and leather company had sent there yester day to pay otT the outside help. Several de tectives have leen sent out to the penitentary. That the burglars were professionals there is no doubt, and they certainly knew of the money in the safe. Centenary Celebration. Albion, Mich., Nov. 2G.

An Increase of the Business of the Na tional Banks The Affairs of the Navy Discussed. Washington, Nov. 20. Comptroller of the Currency Cannon has just completed his an nual reiort. Tliat portiou devottd to na tional bank statistics tdiows that during the year ending November 1, 1881, 191 banks were organized with an aggregate capital of $ lC,012f!, and with $3,800,2:50 circulation. Since the establishment of the banking sys tem in 1803, there have been organized 3,201 national banks, and, of this number, 2,071 were in existence Nov. 1, lat, the largest number in operation at any one time. The corporate existence of ninety banks expired during the year, of which eighty-three have been extended. The coriorat existence of lfl banks will expire dnring November and December this year, and 720 banks with an aggregate capital of s i80,uU0,XX will expire during 1885. Kleven banks have failed and were placed in the hands of receivers during the year. Items of resources and liabilities tabulated in the report indicate that the business of the national banks dur ing the past eleven years has generally in creased. " The aggregate liabilities of na tional banks to depositors and correspon dents were reduced during the year more than 100,000. This reduction of liabili ties and general reduction of loans by banks, which amounted to more .than $03,000,000, during the year was doubtlessly caused, the comptroller says, by financial troubles last May, nnd the general depression of business. Naval Affairs Discussed. WAsniNOTON, Nov. 20. The sub-committee of the appropriation committee having the Navy Bill in charge, had a conference with Secretary Chandler to-day.

Some Information Concerning Num bers and Their Accommodation. F. M. Carroll returned from Kalamazoo yeiterday, where he endeavored to gain for his brother Charles admission to the Insane Asylum. His efforts were entirely fruitless, owing to the present over-crowded oondi tion of that institution. While in Kalama zoo he received from Dr. Foster Pratt some very significant information relative to Michigan's insane. The doctor says there are 2,500 insane people in the State to be cared for. The asylum at Kalamazoo can comfortably, and without danger to attend ants, accommodate C50. They now have theie over 800. The Pontiac asylum can care for 00 comfortably, but now contains over 000. The asylum at Traverse City can care for 500, when complt ted. Besides these institutions of the State there are a few private institutions that provide for a small number each. From this it will be seen how utterly inadequate are the provisions in this State for tho unfortunate insane. In the case of Charles Carroll, who served four years during the war, and the last nine months of the time inside of wretched rebel prisons, it seems Bad that there is no institu tion to open its doors to him and provide treatment for the unfortunate inalady, tliat was brought upon him only from the hard ships and exposures received in serving his country in war. ' The School Exhibit at New Orleans. The pupils of the se veral school depart ments in the city have been asked to con tribute their share to the collection at New Orleans Exposition, and Supt.

Some of the best specimens of designing for wood carving aro now on exhibition in Pat ten's Art Emporium windows on Monroe street, together with these designs ciecuted on wood. The designs are finely executed and would do credit to much more advanced artists. CARPE DIEM. A Thanksgiving Fable Related by Puck." Sallie Fussandfeather was tho finest turkey-hen in the farm-yard' of Silas Groot She had been born in th6 Spring from an unusually largo egg, and each eacceeding month had seen her increase in beauty and plumpness. Every feather was slick and smooth, and if there was any fault about her it "was i -realise she waddled a little from very fatness. She was the acknowledged belle of the yard, and it was thought the proper thing when John Dindon, the magnificent turkey cock, picked her out as his favorite hen. Silas Groot, the farmer, did the same thing, and one day as Sallie strayed near the open window, she heard him say: "We shall have a fine feast on Sallie Fuss andfeather come Thanksgiving. She is just in shape to kill." Sallie saw that her beauty bid fair to be her ruin, and at onco knew that she must take measures to save her life. She thought of running away, but gave that up when she remembered the savage xlogs outside. Then she determined on starving herself. She re fused the fat worms and grains of corn which John Dindon brought her, and she ate only enough to sustain life. Sho stood out in the rain, neglected her feathers and moped like a sick cat. She soon became thin and worn, and as shabby as she had been beautiful. John Dindon deserted her, and she was the laughing stock df the whole yard. But she was more than repaid for all her sufferings when, on the day before Thanksgiving, she heard Silas Groot say: 'Something is tho matter with Sallie Fuss andfeather. She is too poor to kill, and she won't do for dinner." That night Silas took her from her roost, chopped off her head, and sent her as a pres ent to a poor family. Moral. Carrie diem. .

There was also an abund ance of crackers and canned fruits and vege tables. Messrs. Houseman, Weston and Mayor Belknap were soon on hand and hard at work sort ing out tho provisions, labelling them with addresses of the families to whom they are to be distributed this morning. Mayor Belknap took hold of the work heart and soul, and volunteered to distribute the food among the poor of the Sixth and Seventh wards himself. When it made this proposi tion, some suggested he had better have some help; that he could not do it all alone. " On, yes I can," he replied, as he grabbed a twelvt S oun turkey and marked it to a man in the Fifth ward, with a family of nine children. The prime movers, together with the Mayor and the Aldermen, were kept busy until after 10 o'clock, dividing up the turkeys and such among the 250 poor fami lies on the list. This morning they will be distributed in tho city under the direction of the Aldermen and others who have interested themselves in the work.
