Power of Sunshine.
A French scientist calculates that In an average day the sun will pour on two aud a half acres of ground heat which might be turned into energy equal to the muscle power of 4,103 horses. M. Mouchot believed that this heat might be utilized and made to do the work now done by steam and electric ity. He found that by condensing the heat played on less than a yard and a half of ground he could boil a quart of water. By arresting sunshine and condensing it, small steam engines have been operated successfully in Paris but nothing has yet been done to realize practically the great hopes of revolutionizing civilization by using directly the enormous power which comes to us daily from the sun. This power is calculated at that of two hun dred and seventeen trillion, three hun dred and sixteen billion horses, and a thousandth part of 1 per cent of it would run all the factories the world will ever need.—New York World.

Prominent Labor Presidents Gather at PlttnbnrK to Assist the Miners' Officials—President Ratchford Ex presses Confidence In the Out come ot the Fight—Miners' Grim Determination to Stick It Ont Pittsburg, Aug. 16. For the next few days the eyes of the industrial world will be turned toward Pittsburg. The greatest anxiety will prevail until the injunction proceedings against the marching miners will be finally heard. That there is much interest in the sit uation is evidenced by the presence here of a number of the foremost la bor leaders in the country. Michael D. Ratchford, national president of the United Mine Workers of America Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor, and J. R. Sovereign, general master workman of the Knights of Labor, have arrived here and will remain a few days. While they are here they will be kept busy. They came from West Virginia and were brown and enthusiastic. Ratchford seemed to be well pleased with the outlook, and said: "The fight is in a better condition to day than it ever was. The men are as solid as a rock, while they are increas ing in number and determination. I wish to say for every man that is in carcerated there will be 100 friends friends gained for the cause. Fully 90 per cent of the American people are opposed to oppressing the convictions of the public, and if we shirk our duty we would be unworthy of the trust and confidence reposed in us. There was a feeling among some of the miners, both of this state aud West Virginia, that their officers would desert them when injunctions were encountered. You can say for me that the officers will stand by the faith anil this great cause until the last." President Gompers expressed a hopeful view of the situation in West Virginia. He said there was some coal being produced in certain sections, but the supply was being gradually cut off. He claimed there was general sympa thy for the cause in the Mountain state and maintains that fully 13,000 of the 20,000 diggers of that state have joined the suspension. A series of meeting to be addressed by the labor leaders will be arranged. A leaden sky and fitful showers con tributed to the feeling of oppression which existed at the mines at Turtle and Plum Creeks. The men huddled together for shelter under the commis sary tents, and having nothing else to do put in the time smoking and dis cussing the strike in all its phases. The spirit of aggressiveness, however, has largely died out. The same grim de termination to stick it out until starva tion brings defeat, or their efforts vic tory. is apparent, but there is no prop ositions to attain their end by force or to go contrary to sheriff's orders. The men all realize that in opposing the law represented by the sheriff and his deputies they would have about the same success as in butting their heads against a stone wall. They have no particular love for the deputies, al though there is an absence of that cauptic repartee between the factions that has characterized former strikes. The march into West Moreland coun ty will begin as soon as the injunction is settled in court. Much anxiety is expressed as to the outcome. The men stake everything on their ability to show the right to assemble and march on the public road. SI/ASHED WITH A RAZOR. Plttsbnri Police Have a Hot Time With an Anarchist. Pittsburg, Aug. Hi. James Elbert, arrested as a suspicious character and supposed to be an anarchist, created great excitement at No. 5 police sta tion by slashing five policeuient with a razor. One of the officers, George Melntyre, is horribly out on the fact, one wound extendiug from the ear to the throax, taking part of the ear. His condition is serious. The others are badly cut, but not seriously. Elbert, after cutting his way through the guard of fifteen policemen, made his escape from the station by jumping thirty feet from a rear window, hotly pursued by the officers while blood streamed from their wounds. After a chase of several squares Officer Cor liss finally fired his revolver, the bul let taking effect in Elbert's right arm, and he was then captured. The man fought desperately and had to be clubbed into insensibility before he could be taken back to the station. Elbert now lies in the jail hospital in a precarious condition. NEW AMERICA\ PARTY.

BOODCBOPS AND PRICE PROSPERITY RAPIDLY RETURN ING TO THE LAND. Talk With a Distinguished Statesman and Agricultural Expert—B. W. Snow Ha* Some Interestlag Views ou Con ditions and Prospects* Washington, D. C., Aug. 1, 1897. It is seldom that the entire country is blessed with such an abundance as this year. In no section is there re ported "no crops." Illinois has pehaps the poorest wheat yield but her corn crop is magnificent and the small losses from winter killed wheat sections do not amount to any thing in the grand total yield. Mr. B. W. Snow, the ex-assistant sta tistician of the department of agricul ture, who is still making a specialty of agricultural statistics, said, in speaking of the great agricultural wealth of the country at this time "With the bountiful crops throughout the United States not in prospect but actually in hand, with increased aud increasing consumption at home and a larger foreign demand for American products and with prices on the up grade even while the crops are still on the farms, this year of 1897 will he remembered as a year of great agri cultural prosperity and plenty." "Harvesting is so far advanced, Mr. Snow, that it is no longer a matter of estimate and conjecture as to the yield, but in many cises you have the actual approximate figures?" "Yes. The crop season is now so far advanced that the final results can be safely promised. Nevertheless the re sult is no less pleasing than the earlier prospective hopes of the most opto mistlc. In no line of agricultural pro duction is it a light year and in most the yields are heavy. Hay has rarely flourished as it has this year. The abundant rains have given us a very unusual crop and hay is a more im portant crop than usually thought. The rates of the new tariff law thor oughly protcc: our farmers in this re spect. The year's wheat crop is the second largest in the history of the country, running upwards of 500,000, 000 bushels and well distributed over the country. The corn crop promises to be a very large one. The oat crop is also well above the average. All the minor crops ars in promising form. The fruit crop generally promises good re sults. But these facts of large yield and good promise do not tell the whole story of prosperity. Prolific crops have been harvested before, but in some cases, have for want of consumption and demand, proven a burden rather than a blessing. It was a common saying that the farmer would rather have small crops with good prices than large crops and no precis. But this year come the abundant crops and high prices, a rare combination and one calculated to warm the cockles of the heart of the thrifty farmer. Prfcss are high and inclining upward. There is no reason to fear a reaction and slump because of the actual conditions of the world's crops. The United States holds the key to prices. The wheat crop of the world i3 known to be about 100,000,000 bushels short. Argentina, India and Australia have no surplus and Russia practically none. Great Britain, France and Germany are far short in their production of their home demand. There was an American surplus of last year's crop of 70,000,000 bushels and the fortunate thing is that this is in the hands of the farmer. The advanced position of wheat developed before the farmer had disposed of his wheat to buyers and now he will reap the full benefit of the advance." "Is not the present crop larger than was expected sometime ago, Mr. Snow?" "It is, and the quality is of the fin est. In winter killed sections the wheat braced up wonderfully. Fields in Illinois whose plowing under was contemplated early In the season have made very fair yields and othei'3 with a supposed small yield have shown by the thresher enormous returns. The actual increase in money in the hands of the farmers through their wheat holdings throughout the country is an enormous sum. Wheat Is worth now about 20 cents a bushel more than the crop last year and the advance for this year has just begun. The market will continue to rise. The increased value of the wheat crop of Kansas alone this year in comparison with last amounts to nearly or quite 125,000,000, while the increased value of the coun try's crop at present prices is in ex cess of $100,000,000 over that of last year." "What are the corn outlooks, Mr. Snow?" "Most gratifying. Although the sea son started late the yield will be large. 2,000,000,000 bushels is a fair estimate as the rcreage Is the largest ever planted. Every indication points to advancing prices in corn. Last year at this time prices were shrinking at the prospect of a large crop this year the tendency is upward. Millions of bushels of old corn now lie in the cribs in the west and with rising prices for this as well as the new crop, there can be but one result." "All along the line of agricultural production, including all live stock, there is a general steady increase. Large new flocks of sheep are con templated as a result of the wool tariff and the demand has increased the value of the sheep holdings of the country $10,000,000. "But the finest point in all these increases is the fact that they come at a time when the farmer holds his products and that he individually will ^SS^S^SSSSSSSSSBBSSSSSBm4 reap the full benefit, I have a table here prepared some for publication which shows the provement in cash little days ago im values of leading farm products.

H. WILLIAMS. Com* In Out of the Wet Johnnie." Tne Outlook for Wool. We congratulate the American wool growers upon their outlook. After nearly five years of steady deprecia tion in the value of sheep and wool, brought about solely by the Democrat ic policy of free trade in wool, our Am erican sheep owners will have protec tion restored to their agricultural in dustry and with it, we trust, an increase in the number and value of their flocks. While we wish no harmvto Australian sheep owners, the following extract from the monthly woo! circular of Messrs. Goldsbrough, Mort & Co., of Melbourne, dated May 7, Is of inter est: .jK The pastoral position almost through out Australia Is at present one of great gravity the severity of the drought is almost as acute as it is widespread. The preservation of stock reqqjres in cessant effort, and mortality is increas ing with painful rapidity, while the prospects of a lambing season have sel dom, If ever, been more unpromising. Even in stronger confirmation of the unfavorable outlook for the Australian flocks, with a consequent decrease in the production of Australian wool, is the following extract from a printed letter dated at Sydney, Australia, May 8: "Here we are passing through a se vere drought—one of the worst experi enced for many, many years, and I think that nearly the whole crop of lambs will be lost and possibly eight to ten millions' more sheep, so that you may look for the numbers in this col ony (New South Wales) going down from 47 millions at December 31 last year to about 35 to 37 millions at the end of this year, because, even though rain may come now, there must be a tremendous mortality as the ewes are lambing and the sheep generally are in a very weak condition in most parts of the colony. The bad season will al so militate largely against the crops," If it be possible to collect a duty up on all foreign wool Imported in antici pation of the enactment of a protec tive tariff, either in such manner as has been suggested by Senator Warren or by an internal revenue tax, then the' improvement in the outlook for all American wool Interests will be even quicker, stronger and surer. That "Endless Chain" Smashed, The eagerness of importers to evade the new tariff had one noteworthy re sult. It smashed the Cleveland inven tion, that the drain of gold from the treasury was due to our currency, which furnished an "endless chain" for the drawing out of gold. The currency, is the same to-day it was when Messrs. Cleveland and Carlisle were casting about for any reason but the true one to account for their bond sales. The currency is the same and the treasury is not drawn upon for gold exception ally. The reason is the treasury has money enough to meet the govern ment's expenses. Republicans said all the while the drain of gold and '..he bond sales were due to the tariff for deficit and would cease as soon as rev enue receipts equaled expenses.—Utica, N. Y.. Herald. Democrats Not Free Traders. There are a great many editors and a few public men who have deceived themselves into believing that the democratic party is a free trade party.
