A prominent business man of this city in company with a 1 arge number of his partic ular friends journeyed to Cape May Sun <iay on the Republic, for tbe purpose of driving dull care away . For this purpose they instituted a gymnasium, aud while ex ecuting a difficult feat this P. B. M. slipped and fell, at the same time bursting his pan taloons at a very awkward part. T How to rectify the damage agitated the P. B. M. and his friends, some of whom suggested that he sew tome fringe to tbe of his coat, while others suggested pins. Plus were tried hut were found to be too lively, for the P. B. M. was unable to sit down at all. Finally a Ways aud Means Committee wa 6 appointed to devise soine plau by which the wrecl ed trousers could be mude to do duty for the remainder of the voyage. After consulting for some time they re ported that they bad arrived at a decision and had also procured a needle and »bread. The next question was how coaid the. sewing be done? They could not remove the trousers as the P. B. M. had not takeu other clothiug with him. After considerable debate, pro and con, in which the P. B. M. took a lively Interest while setting on a water barrel, a brilliant thought struck one of th« committee men. who without making his Idea known gave orders to the assembled friends to form a ring and be then and there laid the P. B. M. and in a very few minutes finally settled the kuott.y question by sewing the pantaloons in the m^st improved manner, thereby briuging joy to the heart ol the P. B. M.,who immediately invited his sympathetic friends to "take something," which they did. A SEVERE STORM IN THE WEST. the water barrel Many Lives Reported Lost and Many Peo pie Injured. Chicago, III., July 23.—Late advices of Saturday's storm indicate that its track Was one to two miles wide and crossed Blue Earth, Waseca, Steele, Dodge, Olmstead and Wabashaw counties. Most serious dam age occurred at the villages ol Kasata, Ova tonna and Elgin. Three persons were seriously Injured at Elgin and there were nine serious casualties near Mantorville. By the overturning of a passenger train Owantouna 34 j ersous sustained in juries of more or less serious nature. Mrs. Geissiuger and her mother were killed near Hitchcock, and Mrs. Bowles lost her life near Redfield. It is reported that nine persons were killed and 50 wounded near Huron, Dak. Exbtkk, ONt., July 23.—A terrible wind aud rain storm passed over this place last evening which created intense excitement.. Hotels, churches and houses were damaged. No loss of life occurred, but there were many uarrow escapes. Tbe town to-day presents a most depl< rable appearance. A Peacemaker Shot Dead. Chattanooga, Tenn., July 23.—The ond murder in this city within a week oc cuired this evening. A quarrel arose be tween John Allen and Roland Harlan. Michael Butler came in and tried to take Har lan away, but this only enraged Parian and he made a dash at Allen. Allen quickly drew his pistol aud fired. Butl *r and pushed him between himself aud Allen. A second shot from Allen's pistol struck Butler in the left breast. TWo more shots took effect on Harlan, one in his head and the other in his arm.

Trenton, July 22.— Tbe Quickstep, In the Ruine played here to-dmy, demonrtrated what they could do when It was ueceuary to make an exhibition ot poor playine In the first Inning tome of the player» became completely demoralized. Fox was put In to pitch with "Nltk" Smith, of Burlington to back him. Smith had never seep Fox pitch,- knew nothing about him and had come on the grounds as a spectator. He no doubt would have been better able to hold him bad be aeen him before. Smiley. Waltt, Albert and Snyder each played au excellent game of ball as will be seen by the score. Waltt made loth runs through the aid of his own bits and Snyder's single and two-bagger. For the others absolutely nothing can be said but that they did not play ball. II there had been any sharp Melding whatever not a run ueed have been scored by the Trenton team. In the llrst In ning, as will be seen, four runs were scored In the following manner: Harkins went to the bat and drove a two-bagger to right field; Lynch went to his base on balls Quinton took his base on balls; Smith let à ball pass bim, allowing Harkins and Lynch to score; Goodman made a hit, but was p out l.y a throw frem Benners to Smile. Green followed with another hit and allowed Quinton to score, .Bastian went out on a fly U) short stop, and Hunt made a drive Which should have been stopped by Benners, who fumbled the ball and allowed Green to seore. About tbla time Fox discovered that his hand was sore and Pyle came In to pilch. Smith was next retired on a short hit to third. After this the run getting lor the Trenton stopped until the filth Inning, when Huut sc- red on a hit, an error and two passed balls. The next two ruue were earned. For the Quickstep, both runs were earned as before explained. Um pire Griffiths was fair and impartial to hta decisions. A large and enthusiastic audl ence witnessed the game. Geary was puu Ished severely, being hit not less than five times. Once he was struck In the throat and was unable to get up lor a few minutes. The store follows: t 4 ut QUICKSTEP.

The disbandment of the Merritt Club leaves Harrisburg leading lor the Interstate championship; Anthracltt, of Pottsville, second; Trenton ami Brooklyn tied for third place, and the Quickstep, of Wilmington, and Active, ol Reading, bringing up the rear. The reason the game wa 9 lost yesterday can be credited to nothing else but the thick heads of the home team, players b r of t ting up early and riding 60 miles, drinking more after they got there, they were in condition to play ball or anything else. Representatives of the six remaining clubs of the Interstate Association met at the Girard House yesterday. Application for admission into the Association eelved from the F.astouClub, *>f Easton, Pa but it was refused. Mr. McCafferty, of Wilmington, Del., was appointed substitute umpire in place of Mr. Daly, of Brooklyn. H. B. Phillips of the Columbus club lathe author of the schedule which was adopted at the meeting of the association held prior to yesterday's meeting. Secretary Richter being very busy, asked Phillips to fix It up the for him. This he willingly consented to do. along and was at adopted. Nothing was said about compen sation, but Phillips sent in a bill of $70 for of getting it up. This i 6 considered rather cheeky, and when it is considered that the schedule was calculated to bankrupt the clubs for traveling expenses, Mr. Phillips ueed not cxpe.it his $70. All motions to throw out the Merritt games were ruled out by the chair. A. F. Richter was continued as secretary and M. A. Donnelley was elected a director iu his place.

Thn Cotupuy HUH ButTarlng Prom a Dw ftolont Servioe - The strlkera Knoou nui. a N ew Yobk, July 28.—The,force of opera •hw wHich reported for duty at the Western Union office this morning numbered about 200 , aud it is said that noue of those who were at work last week were missing from their poste. Fortunately for the company business is light at thfs season of the year, It is still further diminished by the effect of the strike the force at work is ample to attend to all the business offered. So, at IeÄÄfc ' We«*«™ Union officials say. There was no business left over test night, and this morning all the wires were clear and there was no delay in handling all the matter. One of the offi cials said that tbe outlook was becoming more encouraging every day. He said that everything was working smoothly and that the number of applicants was Increasing. Said he: "It certainly does not seem as though were much hampered wheu we are able to send and receive messaveB to and from all points in the 8 outh aud West. The statement that our business in the Gulf States Is completel blocked Is without foun dation. This morning every wire is. work ing clear gnd we are getting along about as well as before the strike.— THE OTHER BIDE. The striking telegraph operators heid a meeting this morning at Irving Hail, at which Chairman John Mitchell presided. About 500 persons were present, of whom 50 were ladles, and great enthusiasm was man ifested. Encouraging reports were received from many points, and dispatches from all over the Bouth and West were read by the chairman. In several points in I he South the offices were entirely vacated, as is tbe case of Charlotte, N. C.. where it reported the manager, chiér operator ail hands had struck. All lawlessness was forbidden, and it was announced that the Brotherhood would assist in the prosecu tion of anyone found destroying telegraph property. Everyone seems to feel confident that the strike will soon be brought to a close and the company concede the demands of the strikers. wat and a How to end the strike. The executive committee of the Board of Trade aud Transportation at a meeting to day adopted resolutions regarding the tele graphers' strike. The resolution set forth that this business being public in its nature cannot be treated as a difference of opinion between private employers and their em ?loyes would be treated ; that the public ntereat is paramount to all others, and tbe public should not remain silent in a where a great corpoiation has by repeated consolidations acquired a virtual monopoly, which enables to dictate terms to a large class of edu- A cated laborers. Tbe resolutions urge that this strike should be at ouce ended by both parties submitting their differences to a board of arbitration, which might be com- of posed of three operators, three directors of the telegraph companies and the presidents of the National Board of Trade, the Chicago Board of Trade and the New York Board of Trade and Transportation, a majority of which should rule on all questions, or any other board of arbitrators which would fairly représeut the three parties in interest, Philadelphia, July 23.~The point of Interest in the situation of the telegraphers' strike yesterday whs the acquisition of two strikers by the Western Uniou. With this exception there was no sign of weakening the part of the operators. The Western Union officials, however, consider this the precursor of a general break, that will, within 48 hours, result iu a general stsm pe«1b. At the other telegraph offices there was no evidence of increased strength. Man ager Pen about it of t his k, oi' the American Rapid, is austt-d from the long-continued 'trail that be has been forced to endure. He says that communication with Boston, Providei.ee and various other Fastern points is almost entirely cut off . The wires to New York and Harrisburg are well manned and in working order. Betweeu 200 and ,300 messages were sent during the dav, with hut little delay. 'Ihe two New York opera tors who were imported on Saturday were captured by a special committee oi the strikers early lu the day, since when Manager Pen nock has held his own single handed. He declared that the Executive Committee of the Brotherhood had beeu in conference with Vice President May all day. At the office of the Baltimore and Ohio Manager Hankinson was in charge, with a more than adequate force of three opera tors. Although business had increased con siderably the lorce was more than sufiictent to handle promptly everything offered. The Third and Chestnut office öt the Western Union was manned by Manager Garwood and two operators. Almost the full volume worked off, with little delay. Owing to the closing of the»brauch offices of the company the business at this office is straining the capacity of the limited force. Evidences of impatience and discontent were perceptible among the Third street brokers. Several complaints of delayed private messages were heard, although no trouble L met with no likelihood of a general protest coming from the brokers for a day or two at least. The oil brokers, who have been much barrassed in receiving their quotations aud orders from the oil centres, were satisfied with the service yesterday. a on one life the the suits against tiie company. Boston, July 23.—The embarrassment of the telegraph companies began again to-day. About 35 persous, including 10 ladies, were at the desks In the Western Union operating room. The batterymen, who have charge of the 8,000 cells that furnish the nerve force of the wires, struck to-day, and it is said that the effect will In a day or two be serious. The mechanical defects in wires and apparatus cause some trouble. claims to be. able to handle matter promptly.

Mr. Grier moved to rect nsider. the adop tion, at the last meeting,of the report of the committee on teachers upon the appeals of Misses Dennison und Lowher, who had been reappointed for three montbB instead of lor tbe school year. He said he wished to have their appointment extended from three to six months. The motion to reconsider lost. waa Mr. Kyne moved that Miss Lowher be appointed for the full school year. Mr. Smith said he was reluctantly com pelled to side with the Committee on Teach ers In thiB matter, and suggested that the Superintendent be asked lor his opiniou. Chairman Baird said possibly a member of the comml ttee could better give the de sired information. Mr. Bette said the committee did not de sire to do any injustice to the lady, and therefore decided to give her oue more trial. If she performed her duties in a satisfactory manner she would be reappointed for a lull term. Mr. Reeve asked why the committee reap pointed Miss Lowberior a full term in their first report, and a week later reported in favor of reappointing her only for ihree months. He said it was strange that her incompetency had not been discovered until alter she had rendered nine years' Jaithful service. Mr. Palmer said she bad not been a faith lul and successful teacher, but the commit tee desired to do her justice, and gave her another trial. Mr. Reeve thought his question was being dodged.
