Do tho peoplo of Now York want to eloct as their Distriot-Attorney, at this crisis, a for mer honchman of Tweed and servant of SWKXXT? If so, they will voto for tho Col. Fellows who defended Tweed and denounced Tildeh and O'Coxon at a meeting hold to ratify tho already detected Boss's most impudent nomi nation for Senator, in September, 1871, and who was the King's " silver-tongued " mouthpiece in tho ensuing Stnto Conven tion. ' Is this the man to intrust with tho prose, rion of Boodlers and Bribers? FTJTTDja OH THE B0BEW8. The price of coal is going up all over tho country. In Chicago and other Westorn cities it is already outrageously high, and the des peration of consumors threatens serious coal riots as winter approaches. Meanwhile tho miners aro working undor time and at starvation wages. Between indignant consumors nnd op pressed producers stands the Coal Barons' combination, robbing its victims at both ends. Strikes but further its sohemes to limit its supply. It laughs at the protests of the publlo, and screws the prlco a notoh higher. Is it not about time for tho peoplo and tho law to grapple with this infamous conspiracy to corner a necessity of life ? Bee the Evnday WonLD for a story tliat will interest all employers and housekeepers. now deadly is the gangrono of jealousy I Two morning journals havo not only been led by it to abandon their support of the People's Candidate for Distriot-Attorney, but also to suppress a' report of tho largest and most significant political mooting hold in this city since the downfall of tho Tweed ring. And they wore once newspapers. Does Tub Would print the news and all the news? Well, wo inoline to that opinion. And so do the peoplo. Just look at its full report of the big meeting, its startling dis closures about the cholera, its interview with Gould and other exclnsives this morning. The issue of the local election is " between the best moral sentiment of tho city, regard, less of party, and tho worst machine eloment, regardless of principle" When the people ore arousod the moral sentiment always prevails. What the Cooper Institute moetlng cheered as the meaning of Nicoll's election that " the Bosses must go to tho roar and tho Boodlers muBt ga to the penitentiary." Jay Gould " does not think the Govern ment wants to go into tho telegraph busi. ness." That may dopend upon how the Westorn Union serves tho public.

Icamo horo last evening to compote, undor tho auspices of tho Pittsburg Press Club and Marquis of Qnecnsbcrry rules, In a kind of natural gas tournament. I do not brag nor boast, but it strikes mo that I hold my own for sixty min ntes. Gas hero nprlngs spontaneously from tho bosom of tho earth, and immediately pro ceeds to take chargo of tho heating, lighting and manufacturing business. It is clean, smells better than tho places whero the streets have been torn np on Fifth avenuo this summor, and burns readily when prop erly encouraged. Pittsburg is a busy place, It Is located at tho point whero tho Alleghany and Monon gaholn rivers fork. Nature has done much for Pittsburg. She placed hor In one- of tho busiest places in America and then gavo her natural gas. This gas can bo conducted into a room by means of pipes, and, by an an toniatlo arrancementrocently perfected, will, at any hour designated on on alarm clock, enter your room, scratch a match on its trousers and light your fire, so that you noed not got up till tho rfcom is warm. It cooks evenly, and, assisted by an intelli- 5en eo ofilco, will do almost anything but voto. llko natural gas. Artificial or assumed gas dors not please me t but gas that bubbles out of tho bosom of tho earth and just simply asks whoro it can got a job is what wo havo boon looking for. Artificial gas is superficial. It likes to look well in company and Heora brilliant and at tractive in society, but it is false at heart. It likes to seem refined nnd gentlemanly and polished and sincere, but rise and assert yourself and blow it out and soo how quick it will tnko your life Look tho other way ten minutes and sro how soon it will slip down into your cellar and toy with your motor. But natural gas comes out of the ground, spits on its hands and asks where there is anything to do. It then proceeds to do it. Tho young men of America will do well to emulate the natural mid untutored gas of Pittsburg. Do not seok to shine too much by night or attract attention by Organizing a gas leak by day. Givo less attention to tho management of tho meter and moro to tho matter of ndeqnato Horvico and you will do woll. Give your best endeavors to tho pro motion of your employer's interests, no mat ter what your salnry may may be, breatho through your noso, look up and pross on. ward. Bill Nye.

Hall & Blandy, a firm of lawyers, got a $200 judgment against Maurice Barrymoro for professional servicos many months ago. When they Sought to execute it they found that Maurice had craft ily hidden his assets. They brought supplementary proceedings in the City Court to compel him to toll whero his assets were. Mme. Lily Langtry, in whose company he is leading man, was subpoenaed to come to court at 10 o'clock this morning and tell how much she paid him a month. The Lily didn't seo fit to appear in court, so she sent Abe Hummol with a physician's certificate that litigntion would make her ill. The chances are that tho great amount of ' fresh paint that was spread all over tho court-room would have made her ill anyway.

Tho denial of Dr. MeGlynn of tho reported sUt n.-.nt of Father Brennan, of this city, at Pittsburg, to tho offect that MeGlynn was going back on Honry George and wonld return to the Catholio Church, has caused a big sensation hero. The Rev. Brennan is one of tho curates in St. James's Churoh, in this city. He is at present out of town, having gone to Chicago to attend the consecration of Bishop Burke as missionary bishop. A telegram was re ceived at the parochial residence this morn ing from Father Brennnn, stating that ho had been interviewed at Pittsburg by a re porter, who insisted upon it that he was a bishop and would not bo. convincod to tho contrary. In response to the reporter's ques tions ho had given him his views upon a num ber of questions. Ho did not mention having spoken to the 'oportor on the MeGlynn mat ter, and Fathor Cody, tho pastor of the chureh, sold he did not believo that Fathor Brennan had made any such remarks in re cord to Dr. McGlvun as ho is credited with making. A gentleman who knows Father Brennan says : " Father Bronnon is away nnd dearly loves a practical joko. and it is possible thai whon the reporter insisted upon his being a bishop ho fooled him to tho top of his boift, but I do not boliove he ever made any such remarks ns lo is credited with making about Mo. Glynn. If ho said anything at nil it was by way of n joke and with the idea that it would be taken in that way." HE FIXED I)r HIS BANK BOOK.

That Interest on tho Chesapeake and Ohio bonds Is announced to be paid Nov, 1. All to-day's reports of railroad earnings show marked increase over the records of lost year.

The Board of Dlreotors of the Pennsylvania Railroad company will meet on Tuesday next to declare a semi-annual dividend. The street rather anticipates an Increase. It is reported on the street this morning that the stockholders of the Salem Railroad have agreed to accept the proposltlouot the West Jersey ltallroad Company for a consolidation with that system. A prominent bear says to-day that yesterday's drop was unexpected even to the bear faction, and argues a potent Influence at work somewhere In the market unknown to the majority of both "longs" and "ahorta." Mr. A. L. nopklns, a K. T. director, says this morning that there la no danger of a receivership; that the company haa no floating debt, and the December coupon will be paid. Mr. Hop Vina con cludes, however, by saying that It Is foolish for any one to say what the outcome of the fierce com petition between the roads will be. The appointment of a receiver for Chesapeake A Ohio Is not generally regarded aa an event of par ticular market slgnlflcance, as Its condition has been deplorably weak for many years.

The Total Yield In Minnesota nnd Dakota Will be About 80,000,000 Huahela. triCUI, TO TBX XVXItIRO WOBLI1.1 St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 29. Tho Pioneer Press prints tho following: Tlio wheat crop in Minnesota and Dakota has been a subject of much speculation. An estimate of tho crop, based on reports from correspondents in ovory wheat-growing county in tho Stato and Territory, is therefore given to-day. In May last an estimate of the crop, based on reports from tho samo correspondents, gave the total as 85,000,000 and 90,000,000. Tho bases of the acreage for Minnesota are tho figures furnished by II. Stockenstrom, As sistant Secretary of State and Statistician, whoso report Is made up from assessors' ro ports. There is no doubt' that theso reports are under the mark this year. The average yield per aero in this Stato on the present crop is twelve and one-half bush els, which, on 8,048,000 acros (Mr. Stocken strom's report), would yield 88,085,000 bush els. In Dakota, until the present year, thero has been no moans of obtaining official fig ures on acreage. Tho Pioneer-Press has ro lled on its own figures for several years, and has found them to bo, in tho main, correct. The increaso in acreago this year is about four hundred thousand, making a total of 3,076,000. Tho average yield per acre is fif teen and ono-half bushels, making tho total crop 47,662,000. This means a total crop for Minnesota and Dakota of 86,747,000, or 86,000,000 In round numbers. Tho present crop of Minnesota Is 8,710,000 bushols less than the crop of 1886, reported by tho Stato Department, and about 4,000,000 less than tho amount given by the Washing ton Bureau. Tho amount held by tho farm ers at tho beginning of the present crop year, while very difficult to estimate, prob ably did not exceed 2,000,000 bushels. Thero was in store in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Dulnth Aug. 1 5,800,000 more, which, added to tho crop of 80,000,000, makes n total of 93,800,000, or 94,000,000 in round numbers, as tho avallablo resources for all purposes. The Minneapolis mills will need 80,000,000 bushels boforo tho next crop. RECEPTION TO GEN. HAWLBY. Honoring the Henatqr and Ills Afrlanced Bride, Kllse Horner. tSrXCIAL TO TUK XVXXXSQ WOBLD.

For more than a week past all orders have been mado subject to next month's prices. Tho movement of coal has boon heavy enough to tax tho motivo power on tho Read ing's linos to tho utmost to haul the coal to market.

Meanwhile all is desolation in the Lehigh region, whero thousands of miners are out of work. In Hazleton groups of men nro hnng-j ing about the street corners ; tho s' ros aro open, but without customers ; people walk along tho streets with n listless air and slow tread; commercial men visit the town only to fly from it.

These are large figures, and If to them bo added the operators' loss of profits and of trode which cannot bo esti mated even approximately, the figures be come larger still. THE) BOSSES WON'T OrVE IN. The worst of it is, thero seems to be no prospect of a settlement. Tho Lehigh oper ators declare that they will not yield to tho men. oven if no work were done for years. On the other hand the men declare that they will never return to work at the old rate. Meanwhile complaints are pouring into the headquarters of coal combinations from all parts of the country east of the Rocky Moun tains about the scarcity of coal. New Eng land is clamoring for ft, though the retailers ore asking from $8 to $6 a ton more than has been charged for ten years. Even highor prices obtain out West, and. the coal barons, with the powerful aid of tho railroads, are shrewd enough to rush all the anthracite coal they can in that direction s before navigation closes. New York and tho East is the sufferer by those tactics. Retail ors in the coal trade here anticipate great in convenience for tho riqh nnd actual suffering to the poor beforo tho winter is well begun. . 'While the sentiment among the coal trado of this city is-generally adverso to any in creaso in prices, the action of the Reading Railroad in raising the price 25 cents, to gether with the small supply on Tiand and tho labor troubles, seems to dealers to point to on advance. Mr. E. P. Campbell, Trafflo Manager of the Erie Rallwny, said to-day: "Coal'ia very scarco and retail dealers aro getting what they can for it." Inquiry ut the office of the Communipaw Coal Company, of Whitney & Kenmoro, and of other wnolesale and retail dealers, showed that there would be no surprise if the price of coal was raised from 25 to 60 cents per ton. .
