The Missouri Pacific and Wabash Railroads Oonoedeto the Ut mandaof tnelrKmployes and they Go to W ork The Coal Miners Still Out. MAaCH 17. The coal miners' Btrike, which bee;an at tha Staunton mines, on the Wabash rail road, in Illinois, some two weeks ago, is slowly extending to other mines. To-day 100 men in the Gillespie mines, on the Indianapolis & St. Louis railroad, quit work, and a large delegation from8taunton and Mount Olive is now making a tour of i he Belleville district with a view of induc ing a strike throughout that region, march, 18. The Pittsburg minpra are still out. While on his way home last nigh't, Latimore, puperintpndent of the Younh slope mines, West Newton, was attacked by striking miners who concealed themselves along the roadside and assailed him with a vo ley of stones and bricks. The assault was entire ly unexpected and Latimore wasso badly injured that he will probably die. About twenty miners have been working at the old price and refueed to join the strike This caused a bitter feeling and yesterday all the strikers and their wives etoo l about the mouth of the pits and abused the work men. Latimore interfered, hence the as sault. Warrants have been sworn out for the arrest of the strikers and their wives. On the termination of the strike at Dallas, Texas, the warehouse employes, who were suspended when the freight trains stopped, refused to return to work unless the rate of $1 50 per day, reduced to $1 per day last September, was restored. The company to day succumbed to the demand and the men resumed. habch 19. The District Convention of miners held at Straitsville yesterday decided to return to work for 50 cents a ton, being the syndi cate's terms. There is a great surplus ol men searching for work, and it is held that necessity forced this action. MABCH 20. The miners employed by tne New York & Cleveland Coal Company, at Pittsburg, made a demand yesterday for 3 cents per bushel for mining. The company refused to pay the advance, and will shut down Monday. Over 1,000 men are employed in these mines. The strike for 3 cents is now nearly general, and fully 10,000 miners are idle. ' Coal for local consumption is very scaice, and prices have been advanced 1$ cents per bushel. MABCH 21. The railroad coal miners' convention held at Pittsburg to-day was largely at tended. The reports from the delegates are very encouragingto the strikers. Of thirty seven pits along the railroad twenty-two have closed on account of the strike, ten are in operation at the prices demanded by the miners and five are working at a reduc tion. To-day ends the second week of the strike, and no nearer a settlement than when it commenced. Ten thousand men are idle, and it is estimated that they have already lost in wages $100,000. Coal is get ting scarcer every day, and a number of manufacturers are compelled to close down for want of fuel. habch 23. The striking miners at the8cott Haven mines were notified to leave the company's houses by to-morrow morning. If they do not leave peaceably they will be ejected by force. The miners, who have made no pro visions for this emergency, eeem entirely satisfied with the situation of affairs. The strike remains unchanged. A Helena.

A decided stir has been caused here over the question as to the right of a physican to certify to the merits of a remedy not in the modern pharmacopoeia. Dr. James A. Stuart, one of the most eminent physicians in the South and Health Commissioner of this city, has analyzed a newly discov ered article, and certified officially not only to its efficacy but to the fact that it replaced old time DreDarations of a simi. lar character which, analyses had proved were adulterated and poisonous. The Medical and Chirargial Faculty, of which he is a member, held that he had viola ted the code of medical ethics, and much public interest was aroused because of the confidence felt both in his profes sional standing and official integrity. j.6 was argued mat to tnus place a limi tation on the acts of a physician, and especially of a health officer, was opposed to the spirit of the age; that such reason ing might have been logical enough when it was to the interest of rulers or socie ties to invest themselves with a super natural halo, but now when thought should be free and nntrammeled, such things savored of barbarism. It was the duty of a physician, especially of a health officer, to condemn publicly any remedy which he knew to be injurious, but it was not right to Bay that he should be debarred from testifying to the merits of anything which he knew to be good. If this were so, the world would not re ceive the benefit of half the discoveries made in art or science. Thus the people argued, while the faculty threatened ex pulsion and talked of tbe time-honored customs, ethics, professional courtesy and traditions. But the matter soon assumed a new and surprising phase. A few days after wards a certificate appeared in the daily papers bearing the autograph signatures of Governor McLane, Attorney-General Roberts, Mayor Latrobe, City Postmas ter Aderon, chiefs of State and munici pal departments, Judges and Clerks of Courts, Federal officials and Congress men, emphatically endorsing the action of the Health Commissioner, and con curring in his opinion as to the efficacy of the remedy, asserting that they did so from personal experience with it and practical tests and observations. There could be no gainsaying such evidence as this, but, as if to cap the climax, shortly afterwards there appear ed another certificate with autograph signatures of leading practicing phy sicuns from all parts of the State, including the physicians of all the leading hospitals, the physi cian to the City Fire Department, the Port physician, vaccine physician and resident physicians of infirmaries, all endorsing the discovery and stating that it had been tested by them in hos pitals and private practice for weeks with wonderful curative effect, and that analysis had shown no trace of opiates or poisons, prevalent in other cough mixtures. They further stated that they had been induced to take this step in view of the many hurtful preparations which contained narcotics and poisons and of the dangers consequented on their use. The remedy in question is Bed Star Cough Cure. Such a conclu sive answer as this to the narrow argu ments of the few, arrayed public senti ment on the side of the Health Commis sioner, and it is significant that Dr. Steu art has since been appointed to office by the Mayor for a third term, and has had his appointment unanimously confirmed by the City Council. Owing to the high professonal reputa tion of the gentlemen who endorsed his action, as well as to the enviable stand ing of the owner 01 the remedy, The Charles A. Vogeler Company, of this city, wide-spread interest has already been created in the subject, not only here, but in Philadelphia, Washington and other neighboring cities. The feeling is gen erally expressed by professional men that Bed Star Cough Cure, on account of its freedom from narcotics and poisons, inaugurates a most deBirnble new depart ure in medicine. This is the pronounced opinion of authorities like Dr. Fawcett, who has been for thirty three years resi dent physician of the Union Protestant Infirmary, in this city, and Prof. John J, Caldwell, M. D., member of medical soci eties of Baltimore, New York and Brook lyn, and with a long experience in civil and military hospitals. Both of these gentlemen, togetner with no less than fifty other practicing physicians of Mary land, have publicly put themselves on record as to the evil of narcotic medi cines, and the consequent value and im portance of the new discovery referred to. It is conceded that public opinion ihas completely vindicated Dr. Steuart in his action, and that in his whole course he was actuated simply by an earnest desire to benefit the community at large. General Grant's Condition. During the past week the local disease of General Grant has shown no marked ten dency toward a progressive ulceration. At the recent weekly consultation Dr. Ford yce Baker was unavoidably absent, and Drs. J. H. Douzlass, Henry B. Sands and George F. 8hrady, who were present, made a thorough examination of the General's throat with the view of a discussion of the expediency of a radical Surgical operation for the removal of the growth. Such meas ure would involve the division of the lower iaw in the median line, the extirpation of the entire tongue and the greater part of the soft palate together with the removal of the ulcerated enfiltrated fauces and indu rated glandular structures under the right angle of the lower jaw. This was consid ered mechanically possible, despite the close proximimity and probable involvemert of the tissues adjoining the large arteries and veins in the neighborhood of theulceration. But in the best interests of the distinRuihed patient, the surgeons did not feel inclined to recommend that procedure. Even by such means there could be no guarantee, in view of the extensive surrounding infil tration, that the limits of the disease could be reached without immediate risk of life by the severe shock to a constitution al ready much enfeebled. His low vital power is such a 6trong element in the decis ion, that -for the present, at least, no operation will be undertaken. The ulceration on the side of the tongue has not progressed far enough to produce the usual intolerable pain associated with that condition, but should later symptoms appear it may be deemed advisable to divide the gustatory nerve. The general tone of the patient's system remains about the fame as at the last report, notwith standing he has suffered much from insom nia There is no pain in s wallowing, and sufficient food ia taken with reasonable relish. KANSAS FARMING. Notes and Incidents Amoagtbe Farmers of TkeStata, The roads in the vicinity of Olathe have been so bad that the farmers could not get to town. Carthage Journal: 31. H. Howard, one of our enterprising farmers near town, informs us that he has commenced his garden, in which he has already planted teveral kinds of seed. Hesavs he never worked as fine and lively soil in his life, as we have here. Mound City Clarion: Several farmers in Stanton Township have been recently led to invest large sums of money in a patent washing machine right. In sev eral instances they mortgaged their farms to raise the money. We fear they are "handling eels" that will, eave them empty handed after a while. La Cygne Journal' Tfcjiarmof W.S. Hamlin and the late George F. Hamlin, consisting of 100 acres, one and one-half miles east of La Cygne, has been pur chased by W. H. Dum, of Ohio, who has arrived with his family and located therein. W. S. Hamlin had a public sale on the place Thursday, preparatory to moving to Anthony, this State, where he will be associated with his brother Hannibal in the lumber business. Concordia Empire: Farmers who left their stirring plows sticking in the ground last fall, now pull them out and scour them with care and a piece of sand stone. Sometimes Eastern men come here with the old idea in their head that farming implements must be sheltered and taken care of during the Winter. They soon see the advantage, however, of leaving implements out in the field in the Fall so they will know just where to begin in the Spring. Junction City Republican: If you are raising corn to sell, it will probably pay to plant good white corn for seed, as the price is usually from one to two cents higher per bushel. For feeding, we would rather have a bushel of yellow corn than a bushel of white, though it may only be a notion of outs. We never saw the rel ative values of white and yellow corn for feed carefully tested, but it is a popular notion that the yellow is the strongest, and the richest in fat-producing material. Atchison Globe: Abont twenty farm ers met at Harmony Garden recently to protest against the new jail. Andy COl gan was made chairman, and T. J. Em Ian, secretary. Resolutions were adopt ed (1) protesting against the jail; (2) con demning the action of the Commissioners in paying for the Kiper interview; (3) sympathizing with the striking Missouri Pacific shop men, and (4) condemning Governor Martin for signing the new liquor law against his expressed judg ment. Hooks County Record: County Clerk Davis informs us that the Kirwin land office reports 350 pieces of land proved up on during the year prior to March 1st, and entered for taxation. 'This represents 50,000 acres. About 15,000 acres will be returned from the Wa-Keeney office. Add this 20,000 acres of school lands sold dur ing the same period, and we have the grand total of 84,000 acres entered for taxation during the year, or an increase in real estate valuation of over $300,00. Newton Kansan: Spring work prom ises to come with a rush. Little plow ing was done during the winter, and consequently much of it will have to be done before spring planting commences. A large quantity of last year's corn crop is yet in the fields, and it looks as if three month's work would have to be crowded into one. But, luckily, Kansas farmers understand the situation, and af ter a holiday of several months, will go to work with renewed vigor and energy. The past winter has been a good one foi protecting wheat, and the outlook is good for another prosperous season for this part of Kansas. Junction City Union: Mrs. Bob Wil son last Saturday brought, us a sample of maple syrup made from the sap of the soft maple tree so abundant in Kansas. It was a delicious article, with a trifle different taste from the ordinary maple syrup. It sugars quickly and easily. Some ten or twelve trees were tapped as an experiment, and each ran a pint cup full in about one hour and a half. Bob Wilson is an experienced and successful horticulturist, and he has always main tained that the soft maple was as valu able for sugar and syrup product as the hard maple. When he set out the trees on the poor farm for the County years ago the Commissioners objected to so many maple, urging that they were no account, but Bob insisted that some day each time would be worth fifty cents each year, and now that he has been re stored to control of the poor farm he in tends the next few years to demonstrate it. This season he has simply tapped enough trees to experiment with. And by the way Bob is renovating and im proving the county asylum and the farm quite extensively. He takes great pride I in tne trees ne aaa piacea mere, ana ne intends to add and develop them so as to leave his mark as conspicuous as pos sible. He will plant this season several acres of additional grapes. And next year we hope he may be in condition to turn out sugar and syrup by the quantity. STOCK sgciBs. Points and Items Abont Kansas Stock. The heel fly will soon be pestering cat tle. In feeding stock remember that na ture and common sense call for a va riety. This month tells the tale on the range as to how the cattle wintered, all other reports will be counted worthless. Bange men say that grass is staittng in the bottoms, and that inside of a month stock will be able to get consider able grass. S. A. Sheldon, of Hodgeman county had splendid success with his cattle dur ing the pest winter. Out of a herd of about 1 50 he lost none thus far. He gave his cattle plenty of feed, consisting most ly of hay. O. E. Harris, a young man from Penn sylvania, has established a mule ranch on the Sawlog, abont twelve miles' north of Dodge City. He will stock it with abont a hundred head of mares and a high blooded jack. Take extra care.of the cattle nowwhile the new grass is appearing. See that they do not get stuck in marshy places, in search of the new grass and seeking refuge against attacks from the pestifer ous heel' fly. Dodge City Globe: E. Schmoker was in from the Harwood ranch Saturday, and said wirjeredcattle were looking well, Horses are looking fine and are in good 4 shape for Spring- work. Wire is cheap, therefore fence every rod yon can, and put a few good cattle on your grass, and they will soon make you a fonnne. The hay and grain 'yon haul to market and give away, if fed to good, thoroughbred stock, would in a few years make you rich. PeaboJy Gazette: Such has been the percentage of loss among steers on the ranges during this terrible winter, that now it is said the margin between a &t steer and a stock steer is so small tbatne money can be made by feeding. There fore the knowing enes are saying that for the next two years the big money will be made in breeding, not feeding. Peabody Gazette: We see some of our citizens shipping in from a distance runty swine and scrubby calves, paying there for a long price' and heavy express charges to the unconscionable express company, while at the same time they can buy better stock, recorded, healthy and acclimated for one-half the expense. This may seem to them very enterpris ing, but it does not look very shrewd. About a week ago at a ranch ten miles from Ashland, Fred Spencer shot and killed George Warwick. They had had a few words but no further trouble was expected, when, without a word 01 warning, Spencer shot Warwick twice, took what money bis victim had left. Both are young men, Spencer not being over nineteen years of age. Kansas City Grain and Produce Market. Kansas City, March 24, 188C. The Daily Indicator repona: FLOUR The market as dull.
