A Ten Thousand Dollar Offlolal Switching Oars. The Engineers and Firemen Fall to Strike Bora Freight Moving and rack lug Uoue ttnnulng rolloo on Hand. CmcAOo, Aug. 28. The Alton switch men arc still out and freight is fast ac cumulating in thoir yards. At Brighton there are &00 loaded cars bound for the city. There is no sign of any conces sion on tho part of the railroad com pany. At a joint meeting of Alton brakemen, engineers and firemen yes terday afternoon' the action of the switchmen in striking was condemned. General Manager Chappoll, of the Chicago & Alton,' is determined to fight the switchmen's strike out, and to this end went personally into tho switch yards yesterday morning and proposed to earn his 810,000 a year salary by turning switches and coupling cars The firemen and engineers decided not to go out In support of tho swltchmon as it had been intimated they might da The flroraen were anxious to do so but wiser counsel prevailed, even the strik ing switchmen opposing tuch a move. Later in the day a number of non-union switchmen were secured and set to work under police protection. The goneral managers of all roads en tering Chicago were in continuous ses sion nearly all day discussing the strike of the Stock Yards Switching Associa tion in all its phases. The most positive action taken during the day was the adoption of two resolutions touching kindred subject The first declared that under no circumstances would the demands of the striking switchmen for increased pay be granted and the sec ond re-emphasized tho action of Mon day dissolving tho Switching Associa tion. As the roads are to do thoir own " switching considerable time was con sumed in the discussion and adoption of certain needful regulations to con trol the interchange of freight traffic. To avoid confusion and complication in the yards on tho questions of prece dence it was resolved that the executive board of the general managers should have full and complete control of the switching and settle all disputes be tween tho roads as to precedence or right of way over tho switches. Before adjourning the general man agers adopted a resolution directing that all employes of tho old association, engineers and flremon as well os switch 'men, bo paid off, but that tho various 'roads be recommended to re-employ as many of the old employes as they might desire. There is little doubt all tho engineers and firemen will bo re-employed and probably niar.y of the switch men also if the latter care to return tc work. At the stock yards, while business was not at a standstill, operations were not being conducted with their former facility. Tho Michigan Central took on a train of thirty cars of dressed beef for Swift which had been standing in the yards slnco last Friday. The Baltimore &. Ohio, Lake Shore, Fort Wayno and the Illinois Central all have engines there which are manned by officials, ex cept those of the Lake Shore, which had their regular crews. All the pack ing houses were killing yesterday. The striking switchmen are marking every car that goes out of the yards with private marks to indicate that it is scab" freight, and they claim to be lieve that it will not be handled by the regular mon of the various roads. Thus far, however, there has been no trouble in the down town yards. Tho men aro all working except those on the Ch'cago A Alton, whose strike has no relation to the stock yards affair. At one o'clock thirteen engines were at work in tho yards handling about all the goods that the shippers cared to move. The engines belonged to the Fort Wayne, Northwestern, Milwaukee & St Paul, Baltlmoro & Ohio, Illinois Central, Pan Handle, Michigan Central and Lake Shore roads. In many in stances the engines wore manned by the officials of the several roads. Chairman Heed, of the strikers' griev ance committee, said: 'The companies doing business in the stock yards have made a proposition to us to go back to work under the old scale of wages and for all over time work to receive night wages." This statement is denied by the rail road officials, who claim that they have made no such proposition, but that they believe the switchmen would be quite willing to receive one of the character mentioned. An engine of the Baltimore & Ohio entered the yards yesterday afternoon to remove some loaded cars and while making connections. the Baltimore & Ohio switchmen quit work and aban doned the yards. A large force of police are on the grounds and the best of order and apparent good feeling pre-Tails; METALIVOROUS SHRUBS. A riant That Thrive on Coppor Colnl and Old Tin Fan. Prof. Scbelwisoh, the well-knowa naturalist of Bavaria, while traveling with the Stanley expedition in the boart of Africa, notiood a plant with a peculiar steel-colored foliage, and on examination it was found that the shrub. although growing like other plants from the soil, was practically composed of iron. The leaves, although very thin, were bent with groat difficulty, and the twigs and branches resisted pressure with a force about equal to the same amount of iron, and to secure a leaf it was found necessary to separate it from the bush with a file. While Prof. Schelwisch was digging at the base of this plant for the purpose of making an examination of its roots, the natives crowded around him in great numbers, gesticulating in a menacing manner. The Professor doslsted from his work and the interpreter was sent for. He explained that this was a holy tree, and worshiped by the natives in thoir fotlch religion as a god plant, ana that to dig one up would bring ruin and dosolation upon the whole village and surrounding country. Prof. Schelwisch offered to buy the plant, and, taking out a handful of cop per coins, gave them to the savages, who gladly accepted the money and distributed it among themselves. The Professor then returned to the work of digging up the unique plant, but bad not made any great progress when ths natives again set upon him. Through the interpreter the Professor informed them that he had legally bought ths plant and intended to remove it At toon as this mossage was made known to the savages every one who had re ceived a coin came and dropped it in the hole at tho baso of the shrub. Prof. Schelwisch allowed the coins to remain in the hole and walked away toward the mountain to hunt another specimen. Next day, as the party were preparing to continue the march, the Professor was curious to know if the coins had re mained undisturbed during the night by tho superstitious natives, and on ap proaching the metal plant was aston ished to find it had changed its color completely. Instead of being a beauti ful steel color, the stem, leaves and what was exposed of the roots presented the appearance of newly-coined copper coins, and glittered in the morning sun litrht like polished gold. Upon exam ination it was ascertained that during the night the strange plant had ab sorbed nearly all the copper coins, with the result of completely changing its color. What was left of the coins in tho hole showed that they were mere than half eaten away or absorbed by the roots of the metal plant Not only was the color changed, but the texture of the plant had undcrgono a similar transfor mation. It was found that the thin ivy shaped loaves were now easily bent around the fingers, would retain any shape given, and could be readily cut with any ordinary pair of scissors. Prof. Schelwisch succeeded in surrepti tiously securing several branches of this wondorful metal eating plant and was also successful in obtaining a good photograph of it No further trace of the existence of the metal plant was found until tho expedition reached tho Uniamcsi country, when at the baso of the Nkomabakosl Mountains a perfect forest of this curious plant was found. This being an uninhabited region, no difficulty was encountered in securing specimens to take back to England. A trreat fire was built about the tree, but it would not burn the least little bit Philadelphia Times. Jack "What are you doing now?' Bill "Manufacturing porous plasters over in New Jersey."
