Iii everf part of the country the IVmo crats have iubniitted to all the iiwues settled Ijv the war. They proclaim in their plst furuiH, public speeches and through the pre that h! a very is abolished, secession dead, and the constitutional amendment fixed and im movable facU. They propose to bury out of night forever sectional hatreds, all tlie issues of the war, aud plead for conciliation and union in a common brotherhood, so essential to the future greatness and prosperity of the country. But the Republicans are nothing, unless they are Bourbons. It is impossible for them to lift themselves out of the old groove in which they have so long run and prospered. Such Bourbona as Dawes and Hoar and Frye non-combatants in times of war, and warriors in times of peace are continually fighting over the battles of twenty years ago. It is eviilunt that the Republican party is deter mined to forget nothing of the past, and to learn nothing in the future bat sectional hatreds. The patriotic masses of the north are becoming disgusted with the Republican party, which furnishes the only Bourbons to mar the peace of the country. The Spring field (Mass.) Republican thus rebukes the Bourbons: The temptation to Imitate Blaine's Anderson vllie apeeeh, to wbieh Frye has yielded. Is natural; but times hare changed .although men like Frye do not know It. The country will not respond, the north will not ri? to his call; he may do bis best to stir up strife, but strife will not come. The day is past when a deliberate and wicked attempt to set the two sections at varinni-e can succeed. It is easy to ronse passions in tlie senate, to wake old passions, to raise old Lsttiiea, and by eTioiial jars prevent the discharge of daily and needed duties, but in the comMry at large this will not do. If the l'xcical deduction of Frye'a speech were to be put into practice, the north would be in arms harass ing llie south, and the south in arms defending it self: sction would be set against section, and titate atralnst State; Federal officers would Im? marshaled to organize the negro vote under demagogues like Ma boue and corrupt men like Kellogg; troops would dot th south aud force bills would deprive men of the ordinary protection of the laws: but none of these things can be, none will be Thecountry has other work. Public opinion Is rrystalizing around other issues, public sentiment is patiently thinking out other question, and public effort is directed toward removing by education the causes oi the evils Frye uses to edge sectional strife. The people are at work, they are happy and prosper ous, never more so, at work north and south, spin ning and weaving, raising cotton and corn and f raiu, and the senate would be lietter employed if t was at work like them instead of raising hate and worse lu the senate chamber. The war has been over for sixteen years. Yet neither Morton, nor Wade, nor Sumner, nor Thad Stevens abused the south more savagely while Lee's legions were in Penn sylvania than Frye and Hoar and Dawes now abases the south in the senate of the United States. These men did not endanger their lives by exposure to Confederate bul lets during the war. But now that the con flict is over, and such soldiers as Hancock would make the Union stronger and more prosperous than ever before by a fraternal brotherhood, these Bourbons are full of venom and fight. It is a misfortune for the whole country that such Bourbons should be put in the United States senate. They for get nothing and learn nothing. Certain it is they have not forgotten how to abuse and vilify the south. Tlie Boston Herald, the Republican paper of the largest circulation in Ma8Hachusetts,says: "Mr. Frye has made a great mistake. A young Bourbon, four years behind the times, with his ears stop ped, his eyes blinded and his back turned on great opportunities, is a sorry sight. Don't be deceived by interested flattery, Mr. Frye. You have started wrong." In aommenting on this extract the St. Louis Republican says that Frye, the Republican Bourbon, is not ouly " four years behind the times," but fourteen. He does not know the war is over, and is hardly aware that slavery is abolished. Ho really thinks he is doing God and the country service by ham mering away at the coffin of dead issues and raking over the ashes of the past in search of a coal wherewith to "fire the northern heart." He belongs to the class who not merely "start wrong," but take pride in continuing as they began. Twenty years hence, if be lives so long, Frye will still be using the exploded cartridges of Ben Wade, Thad Stevens and Zach Chandler, and wondering why the walls of the solid south do not tumble down in an swer to his bombardment. We know of no Bourbons gave those in the Republican par ty, who are constantly flaunting the bloody shirt. The Democrats have learned some thing and forgotten something. They have learned that slavery is extinct, that secession is dead, and that this Union is one and in dissoluble, and that the constitutional amend ments and all the issues decided by the war are fixed and unchangeable facts. They have forgot the mad passions born in war, and ask to be let alone in their efforts to recuperate their lost fortunes, and thus contribute to the common glory and prosperity of the country. The only Bour bons that beset the country, and refuse to recognize the new era, are to be found in the Republican party. Having prospered polit ically and grown rich by the war, it is im possible for them to forget the source of their power, and fearing to hazard all they have made, they are determined to continue in the old groove. But the country is tired of these Republican Bourbons. It is determined to have peace and reconciliation, and sooner or later it will discover that the only way to secure this is to consign to oblivion the effete Bourbons who cannot learn that the war is over, or forget the abuse which had some excuse when heaped upon the south twenty years ago. EITHER A FOOI, OR KXAYE. The personal and political friends of David M. Key are deeply concerned about the reputation of the ex-postmaeter-geueral. And well they may be, for iu view of the notorious scandals, the gross and palpable rascality which permeated the postullice de partment, it is impossible for Judge Key to escape political condemnation. The reputa tion of Grant suffered from the rascalities of Babcook, Belknap, and the whisky rings, and Hayes and Key will be made responsible for the corruptions of the postoflice department now 'Claiming public attention. The people of Tenuesaec, and especially here in Mem phis, have heretofore regarded Postmaster General Key as an honest, amiable Miss Nancy. They have admired the gratitude he has manifested in taking care of the men who were instrumental in securing his ap pointment as postmaster-general by feeding them from the public crib. But charity can no longer hide the multitude of villainies that permeated Key's administration of the postoflice department. It will require much explanation to shield Key from the harsh judgment which forced Belknap into a dis graceful obscurity. The Knoxville Dispatch, whose editors are the personal lriends of Judge Key, says: There Is no doubt that Brady, who had charge of the 'star business under IVstmaster-lieneral Key's adinistrauou, is a bud egg. The proofs are abundant that he "put money into his purse" at the expense of his omee. 1 ne worst pari oi it is, bis misconduct reflects upon his suisrior, whom no one who knows him personally could accuse of a corrupt transaction, cither of a pecuniary or other nature, still, it is mortifying to his friends that even the recngnlzisl organs and championsof Hayes's administration are constrained to set up for him the plea of weakness." We believe, ac cording to ben ltutler's philosophy, most men had rather be suspected of being ruscls than to be pronounced outright fools. A fool we know Judge Key Is not; a knave we know he Is not, and yet his late associates call upon us to place htm in the softer bed. hiehever ho may think the more pleasant be may crawl Into. He went out on his political bunt without our indorsement. We begged htm not to go. We will indorse him as to what be was aforetime; be must alide the harsh opinions oi those among whom ne sought shelter. For the take of Judge Key we would like to believe that his time was so occupied in providing sinecures for his friends and in strolling over the country at the heels of the fraudulent President, that he neither knew nor cared anything about the general man agement of the oflice intrusted to his care, and which he was paid a large salary to guard and administer in the interest of economy and the public service. But such charity would be as dishonest as unjust to the intelligence of Judge Key. We do not believe that he was a party to the frauds and villainies that permeated the postoflice department overwhich he presided, or that he received any part of the stolen plunder, as Belknap did. B':t it was utterly impossible for him not to know of the star service theft and robbery, which, it is charged, are only surpassed in magnitude by Tweed's rascali ties. The country will never believe that Key was such a fxol as to permit over $0,000,000 to be stolen without knowing something about the fraud. The post office department, if these . charges be true, was most shamefully mismanaged by David M. Key. Aaron V. Rrowu and Cave Johnston both retired from the position of postmaster-general with clean hands, and the people of Tennessee regret tha.t the Tennessean who filled the same po sition retires with at least a beclouded rep utation. The honest, but obscure David M Key of six years ago is more to be envied than the Ex-Postmaster-General David M. Key of the present day. THE SMOKE HIISAJICE. As towns increase in size and manufac tures are introduced, there follows an inva riable outburst against "the smoke nuisance." The men find the effects of the smoke a fre quent obstruction to their business pursuits, and the fair ladies discover that they can no longer pace the streets "in virgin white ar rayed," lest they should return home in the picturesque garb of Jacob's lambs "ring streaked, speckled and spotted" while the pearl powder that, rumor says, "aids the reflection" of their lovely countenances, has become mingled with jets of soot, a contrast not favorable to the attractiveness of woman's charms. Inventors have tried their skill scientists have drawn upon their profound researches, and legislators have adopted en act menta, all with a view to abate the smoke nuisance. All has been in vain, however, and the dull, dim pall hangs over each city as the doom of impending fate hung over Sodom. We see that a' new remedy "for the dark evil" has attracted attention in England, and it presents an ap pearance that is not unpromising. It has been tested with sufficient success to induce Mr. Moncrief, its inventor, to apply for a patent. The gas companies, instead of drawing from the coal they use the whole amount of the products they extract at the present time", are to draw only a definite por tion, so that they would use three times the ordinary quantity of coal. They thus get from that substance its best and most easily and cheaply obtained products, such aa will make their gas of a twenty-four candle power where it is now of sixteen candle power, while the coal, not being reduced to mere coke, will retain all its most valuable heating qualities. In this condition it burns with a clear brightness, throwing out a pow erful heat, but without smoke; the gas makers have deprived the coal of the power to produce what is a nuisance to the public, bnt is a source of wealth to them. . The pro cess is an economical one for the gas com panies, while they are able to sell the coal in the condition in which they have left it, at a lower price to the consumer than the cost of coal as it comes from the pit. Every reader will warmly wish success to Mr. Mon crief, but there is always a "bat" to any thing good what has to be done when the electric light has banished gas making from the list of man's occupations? COAL FIELDS OF THE SOUTH. There is a contiually increasing manifesta tion, on the part of the people of the south, of a desire and intention to make the most of those treasures with which their country is so richly endowed. That not only must the valleys be cultivated, but that the mountain fastnesses must be assailed and the riches their entrails contain drawn forth and made available, is a feeling that is strongly devel oping itself. The census report of the iron interests of the country, of which the Appeal gives an account in another column, shows that this portion of the Union is forming a more practical no tion of what should be done with their min eral wealth than was done when one or two commanding interests took the lead, to the neglect of other means of prosperity. South ern mining interests are beginning to claim attention, along with cotton and sugar, and their claims are commanding the degree of attention that has been too long denied them. The importance of the iron districts of the south are now universally recognized, but the iron ore is comparatively valueless until it is married to the yield of the coal mine, and we are pleased to see that coal is also coming in for a due share of attention. The "Mobile Register informs us that the val uable mines of coal in that State are proving very prolific, while the quality leaves noth ing to be desired, and the working of the mines and transportation to market iB so well and so economically carried on, that "stone coal can be had on the wharves of Mobile for a dollar and a half a ton." . Pittsburg coal at New Orleans cannot compete with this, and instances are occurring of steamers going from New Orleans to Mobile for coal. As the communicants of the mines with that seaport are peitacted, this trade will assume greater proportions. Birmingham, which is the headquarters of the Alabama coalfield, has a greater demand for tonnage than the railroads can supply, and at Vicks burg the products of Alabama mines are now to supply coalboats running upon the Mississippi. A railroad from Atlanta, Geor gia, will soon be completed that will supply that city with Alabama coal. The result of the progress made in coal mining is such that the yield of 49,889 tons in 1874, was re placed by one of 340,000 tons in 1880, dis tributing among the people not less than $2,000,000. New mines are opening, new railroads are affording transportation, the demand is rapidly increasing, and while pol iticians foam and froth over empty words in Washington, the bone and sinew of the peo ple are pushing along the substantial inter ests of thecountry in the coalfields of Ala bama and the iron mines of Tennessee. This is "vindicating the sunny south" in earnest. IRON Al STEFt, INTERESTS OF THE V KITED STATavN. The special agent of the census board, J. M. Swank, engaged in collecting statistics respecting the iron and steel industries of the United States, has issued a report from which we gather the following interesting particulars: The whole number of iron and steel establishments in 1880 was lOO; in 1870, 802; an increase of 24.38 per cent. The daily capacity of blast furnaces was 8357 tons in 1870; in 1880, 19,248 tons; an increase of 130.32 per cent., as follows: Blast furnace establishments in 1880, 4!K), against 380 in 1870; blast furnaces 081, against 574; rolling-mills 324, against 310; steel works 73, against 30; forges and blow eries 118, against 82. The whole amount of capital invested, in the iron and steel indus tries of the United States in 1880 was $230, 971,884; in 1870 it was $121,772,074; in crease, $109,199,810, or 89.68 per cent. The total production of the iron and steel works of the United States in the census year 18S0 was 7,265,140 tons; in 1S70 it was 3,655,925 tons; increase, 3,609,925 tons, or 98.76 per cent. Of the pig-iron and furnace castings produced in the census year 1880 there were, with cold-blast charcoal, 79,613 tons; with hot-blast charcoal, 355,405 tons; with anthra cite, 1,112,735 tons; with bituminous coal and coke, 1,515,107 tons; and with mixed an thracite and coke, 713,932 tons. The furnace castings amounted to 4229 tons. The total production was 3,781,021 tons, of which 12,- 875 tons were spiegeleism. The Bessemer and open hearth steelworks produced in 1SS0 985,208 tons of Bessemer ingots and 84,382 of hearth ingots. In 1870 there were twenty five States engaged in the manufacture of iron and steel. Of theseSouth Carolina does not appear in the statistics for 1880. Its total production in 1870 did not aggregate 500 tons. The iron industry in this State has been practically abandoned. Since 1870 three States have, for the first time, engaged in the manufacture of iron, namely, Colora do, Kansas and Nebraska; also two Territo ries, namely, .Utah? and Wyoming. Utah did not, however, make any iron in 1880. It made a small quantity in each of the years 1874, 1875 and 1876, and it wfll make a larger quantity in the near future. Cali fornia and Washington Territory have made arrangements since the close of the census year 1880 to manufacture iron. Oregon and Texas each built a blast furnace in the de cade preceding the census year 1870, but they did not make any iron in that year; they appear, however, in the statistics of production for 1880. The District of Colum bia once had a blast furnace in operation, but in 1870 it had no iron industry whatever; in 1880 the United States government owned and operated a small rolling-mill at the Washington navy-yard. Minnesota appears in 1880 for the first time among iron-manufacturing States, but its statistics relate only to the preparations that have been made to embark in the business. Thirty States, the District of Columbia and Wyoming Ter ritory actually made iron in 1880. Twelve States made over 100,000 tons in 1880 Pennsylvania made a little over 49 per cent of the total product of the Union. West Virginia increased its production from 72, 337 tons to 147,487 tons, or 104 per cent., giving it the seventh place in 1880. Ala bama increased from 7000 tons to 62,080 tons, or 792 per cent Georgia increased from 9634 tons to 35,150 tons, or 265 per cent Tennes.se increased from 34,305 tons to 77,100 tons, or 126 per cent. Kentucky in creased from 86,732 tons to 123,751 tons, or 43 per cent, placing it eleventh in rank in in 1880. Delaware increased from 8307 tons to 33,910 tons, or 308 per cent Virginia in creased from 37,836 tons to 55,722 tons, or 47 per cent Pennsylvania ranks first of the iron-producing States. Ohio comes next with 930,141 tons. ' New York follows, then Illinois. Missouri stands tenth, with 125,158 tons. Tennessee comes fourteenth, with 77,100 tons. Georgia is eighteenth, with 35,152 tons. As an indicator of the possibilities for future progress in the south,' this report has great interest, for what has been done within the field to which its details are confined are but beginnings, point ing to what is to come. In its mountains lie buried treasures which await only the devel oping hand of the industrious, miner and the trained skill of the smelter and the puddler, to show what her unwrought mines can pro; duce from the nndeveloped treasures of the southern States, rich with the latent resources of an empire. Development is what the south most lacks. But we see the dawning of a better day in such facts as the following, in stanced by the New York Tribune: " One of the largest manufacturers of iron and Besse mer steel in Pennsylvania is about to trans fer his works to Alabama. He finds there the ore, the fuel and cheap labor, all at hand, and asserts that he expects to make the manufacture pay higher profits than in the north, even after taking into account the cost of removal and the larger rates of trans portation in the south." The report, of which we have given an extract above, shows the advance the southern States are making in mineral enterprise. West Virginia has more iron and coal than Pennsylvania and awaits only capital and railroads. Only three States have failed to increase their yield of iron during the last decade, one of them is North Carolina, with immense iron deposits and cheap labor, but. railroads are wanting to bring the metal within reach of the markets. Northern capitalists, however, now own much of the iron-bearing territory, and they will not fail to render it available. The New York Tribune gives the south a prac tical hint on the railway part of the subject which is worthy of attention, and which shows the necessity of such a railway bill as the Tennessee senate failed to pass at its last ses sion: "It is not only t railways that are needed in the south to develop her mineral resources, but practical sense in the manage ment of those already built The charges for freight and transportation, being usually treble those of northern roads, are calculated to deter all kinds of producers who must send their goods to distant markets. It is pretty shortsighted policy to choke off the goose be fore it lays any golden eggs at all, as our Bouthern neighbors will probably see some day." - A Blow Followed by a Fatal Stab. Pittsburg, April 28. D. McCartney, a a druggist, was fatally stabbed last night by Charles Dalgleish. The latter had been visit ing a family named Scott, who occupy the upper stories of the building in which the drug store is situated, and when he came down he found several parties in the front store. McCarthy ordered them to leave, and some of them talked back, which made Mc Carthy angry, and a tussle ensued between him and Dalgleish, during which the latter was struck on the nose. Dalgleish then drew a knife and cut McCartney across the abdo men, inflicting a wound from which the bowels protruded. The injured man was car ried into the house aud a physician summoned who pronounced his wounds fatal. Both par ties are well known and have hitherto borne good characters. Dalgleish has been arrested. Harmonlalns; the Arkansas Democracy. Little Bock, April 28. An important political meeting was held by appointment here to-day looking to an organization of the Democratic party on the basis of a submis sion of the Fish back amendment, its friends claiming to be a majority of the party. In fluential representatives from all sections of the State are present. The late opponents of the amendment have submitted tt proposition to the amendment Democrats, for a com promise on the basis of calling a consti tutional convention and allowing a reorgani zation of the State central committee satis factory to the amendment faction. The lat ter have taken the proposition under advise ment and will hold a meeting for its consid eration to-night Toe Prospect for Fruits and Berries. Louisville, April 29. Mr. J. W. Ross, a member of the executive committee of the State board of agriculture, has made a search ing microscopical investigation into the fruit germs and reports the strawberry prospects the best that bave ever been kuown; the plants are vigorous and healthy. Cherries are almost all killed. Peaches, a large crop up to the present with the exception of the delicate varieties. The pear prospects are the best that bave ever been known in the State. The apple prospects for a large crop arc all that could be desired. A crop of rasp berries from all hardier varieties is expected. There will also be a full crop of blackberries. Elevator and Warehouse Burned. Philadelphia, April 28. The Girard Point elevator burned this morning, with 70,000 bushels of grain. Loss covered by insurance. A warehouse in the vicinity of the elevator was also burned, as well as a quantity of miscellaneous freight. At noon the fire was still smouldering. The loss on the corn and wheat destroyed is $97.000 in sured. The loss on the buildings is about $000,000; insurance, S3S0.0O0, in amounts generally less than $10,000, in a great num ber of companies. In four hours the entire elevator and warehouses were in ruits. The elevator was one of the largest in the country; it had twelve elevating machines, and a total work ing capacity of 5400 bushels per hour, with a carrying capacity of 630,000 bushels. The Girard Point Storage company state that the destruction of their elevator will not inter fere with the prompt handling of grain at Girard Point. The company, with their transfer elevator, are now unloading cars, and with their floating elevators and barges are prosecuting business as usual. An Outrage of I'nnsnal Atrocity. Ixisdon, O., April 23. There is much ex citement here over a particularly aggravat ing assault and rape of a child six years old, by James Turner; a colored laborer. The child, Annie Smith, was left alone at her father's house last night while the family went to church. During the evening Turner came to the house and committed the rape. The child is terribly ruptured, aud probably fatally injured. Arkansas State Board of Health. Little Rock, April 28. The State Board of Health has organized by the election of C. E. Nash, president and J. A. Dibrell secre tary. The board held a lengthy session this afternoon, and is arranging for a perfect pro tection of the State. THE CARS STARTED On the Street Railroads of St. Louis, After an Interruption of Several Days by the Strikes Closely Followed by a Squad of Mounted Police, And Viewed by Thousands of Curious Spectators, the Opening Trips are Made Without Incident Com bined Strikes During the Summer Talked of. . St, Louis, April 28. In accordance with the orders issued last night four companies of the police reserve regiment, Colonel But ler commanding, repaired to the Four Courts building, in which are police headquarters, and are now stationed there in readiness for any emergency. A company of light cavalry, under Lieutenant Halliday, and Winters battery of four guns, belonging to the Na tional Guards, art ilso there, subject to a mo ment's call. Governor Crittenden arrived early this morning and is now in consultation with the police commissioners. The entire police force of the city are on duty, and also ,the special men called into service by the commissioners. Four men of the regular force are stationed at each corner on Olive street from Twelfth down to Fourth street, and at the eastern terminusof the Olive Street road and a like disposition of men has been made on Washington avenue. There are also SliUABS OF MOUNTED POLICE patroling both streets. At the stables of these companies, in the western part of the city, there is also a large force stationed. The morning opened cloudy, and from about 8 to 8:30 o'clock brisk showers fell, but at this writing the day has cleared and the sun shines warmly. There are no unusual crowds on the street, and one would not think from the general appearance of things that a riot and perhaps bloodshed is in antici pation. The cars will start from the stables in the western part of the city at 9:30 a.m., and will reach Fourth street if no molesta tion is 'offered at about 10 o'ejock. John Ford, president of the Trades assembly, pub lishes a card this morning denying the charge that the trades unions of the city have been managing the strike of the conductors and drivers. Maurice Guiheen, president of the St Louis Typographical Union, is also out with a card denying that John J. Hogan, who has been very active in the interest of the Btrikers, is an officer of that union, as has been stated. By 9:30 o'clock considerable of A CROWD HAD COLLECTED on Olive street between Fourth and Sixth streets, but the police kept it moving so con stantly that it could not concentrate or ob struct any particular spot. All were served alike. The business man who stopped to look out of curiosity, the rougher fellow who might, nnder favorable circumstances, create trouble, aid the street gammon were hurried along promiscuously, and not permitted to loiter a minute. At 9:50 the first car ap peared at the top of the ascent at Sixth street, and was hailed with a slight cheer. It contained twelve persons, three of whom were its driver and conductor, and Roll a Wells, superintendent of the' road, who was on the front of the platform. A squad of mounted police rode cl ose behind. It passed rapidly to the turn table, on the corner of fourth street, swung around aud proceeded immediately on its return trip. A number of others followed in rapid succession. About this time THE CROWD GREW RAPIDLY LA lift ER, hundreds flocking in from cross and adjacent streets to Bee what-was going on, but the po lice were fully equal to the emergency. Cap tain Keuuett who was in charge at this point, formed his men in double lin- entire ly across the street, and, marching them up and down for two blocks, soon had the space clear. The crowd generally tood this treat ment good naturedly, and after seeing that the authorities were in real earnest quietly dispersed, and by 1 1 o'clock the street had assumed its usual appearance, except that the police remained to prevent any further gathering of the people. No violent demon stration was made, and very little disposi tion to be unruly cropped out A few epithets were launched on the new conduc tors and drivers, but this was all. ABOUT THE SAME SCENE as the above occurred on Washington avenue. The start on this line was not quite so early as on Olive street, hut when the cars did be gin to move they followed each other rapidly and without molestation. The police carried out the same plan here as on Olive street, and the crowd soon grew, tired of being forced to keep moving, and quietly dispersed. The strike is ended, and, from the way things look now, all the roads will be running to morrow. The troops at the Four Courts were not needed, and the First regiment, National Guards, remained quietly in their armory, on the corner of Washington avenue and Fourth street, and viewed the operations of the police from their windows. The police proved that they were fully able to cope with the crowd, and had there been ever so riotous a disposition manifested, they could have easily quieted it. They behaved admirably, and deserve credit for their discipline and efficiency. Vice-President Cruppers, of the police board, has notified the presidents of all the roads that they may start their cars and rely upon BEING FULLY PROTECTED. One of the first acts of Governor Crittenden on his arrival was to issue an order calling the National Guards of the city and county of St. Louis into active service at once. This was responded to by about 350 men of the First regiment, under Brigadier-General Squires, who mustered at their armory, and perhaps 2U0 of them are still there. They will probably remain under arms to-night and to-morrow. JCrastus Wells was at his stables early this morning, and gave his per sonal attention to organizing his new force of me.n and to starting the cars. He said to a reporter: "This is not a question of a few dollars expense with me, but I will not be dictated to by a so-called union. It shall never MANAGE MY BUSINESS. I do not apprehend any trouble, hut I will run my cars whatever happens. All the cars on Olive street and Washington avenue will be hauled oft" at 7 o'clock. Several of the strikers who have become dissatisfied, if not disgusted with the way their affairs have been managed by such men as P. J. Maguire and John Hagen, visited the merchants ex change this alternoon and hail a conference with the president, Michael McKnnis and Ex-President George Bain and Alexander Smith, as to the way of settling the difficul ty between the strikers and the railroad com pany, and asked them if they would serve as an arbitration committee, provided the railroad people would agree to arbitrate. They replied that they would, and willingly, but only on condition that the strikers should disconnect themselves from all trades unions, and that they should bare nothiivg to do with any association or communistic organiza tions. GENERAL STRIKES TALKED OF. Washington, April 28. There is a quiet effort being made here to organize national representation of workingnien's organizations throughout the country, in order that all may be in communication and act in eon cert in endeavoring to obtain an increase of wages this summer. . It is claimed by those purporting to represent workingnien's organ izations that corporations aud employers are making more money than heretofore, but will not increase wajje; that workingmen intend to demand an increase, and that gen eral strikes may occur this summer. JAY liOILD Preparing to Concentrate His Capital in Longitudinal Lines From Chi ciitto to Sew Orleans. Chicago, April 28. It is reported here that Jay Gould is working to secure control of the Chicago and New Orleans route, which is composed of the Illinois Central and the Chicago, St. Louis and New Orleans railroads. It has been obvious for months that Mr. Gould was preparing to drop the latitudinal roads, and take up an ownership in the longitudinal linos. He said to some of his friends, six weeks ago, that there was material in tlie north and south roads, nnder an energetic manipulation, for a tremendous "boom," and his friends were not so obtuse as not to discover the direction of the wind by this little "straw." His purpose, it is rumored, is to control tlie rail and river systems leading from Chicago and St. Louis to New Orleans on the one hand, and the gateway to Mexico on the others and to operate these routes with a view to the establishment of the geograph ical innovation namely, that the natural route from the northwest to Europe is from Chicago and St Louis n'a New Orleans. The rumor is that Mr. Gould has for weeks been quietly negotiating for the interest which is to insure him the control which he has set about securing. These negotiations are with foreign shareholders and bondholders of the Illinois Central and Chicago, St. Louis and New Orleans roads. Whether he shall succeed in his purpose, if such be his purpose, will shortly be known, but in the meantime it may be safely assumed that if the negotiations have progressed to the point indicated by the rumors jhU object iPrc tically accomplished at. this time. These roads, which are in splendid order, are now both owned by one association of sharehold ers and are operated under a mutual traffic agreement The two roads, with all the pro prietary lines, represent a total mileage of about law miles. NOTHING TO COME OF IT. The Star-Ronte Scandal to be Dropped With an Exposure, bnt no Investi gationA Criminal Prosecution Is Out of the Question, and Congressional Court of Inquiry ls-Kot to be Encouraged. Washington special jto the New York World: The announcement in these dis patches on Saturday of the pressure on the postoflice department, and on the President, to let the star-route scandal drop with an ex posure and without prosecution, in order to avoid dangerous consequences to the party, seems likely to be verified. It is now said that a prosecution could be brought only upon suspicion, and that enough circum stantial proof could not be adduced to secure conviction in a criminal court, although a mere recital of the facts would be morally convincing to any one who chose to read it The only other method of bringing those who are involved to punishment that seems to have occurred to the postoflice department is through a congressional investigation; but the recent decision of the supreme court in the KU bourn case would sustain Brady Dorsey & Co. in defying a congressional committee. Here, then, are two loop holes through which the administration can save the perpetrators of the alleged frauds from legal punishment, and it is vainly imagined that the Republican party can thus be saved from the consequence of an enor mous scandal. There has been a good deal of talk over Auditor McGrew's call for an investigation. It is admitted as a possibility that he may not have connived at or been benefited by the frauds shown in the table of expedited service printed in to-day's World; but, if he did not, he was altogether too in nocent and unsuspicious for the position he held. It was his duty in auditing the ac counts presented to him to see that they were correct That was why he was placed there, and it was expected of him that he should report any inaccuracies or irregularities. Ha was entirely out of Brady's reach, and was responstDie not only to the postomce depart ment but to the treasury of which he was an officer. Considering that the accounts of the postmasters along the lines of the star routes were also audited, be had every opportunity of ascertaining just Jiow many routes began at a given point and ended nowhere, and to just what extent the al leged increase of service benefited the coun try concerned. Such a coarse by him would also have been justified by precedent for both on treasury and court proceeding decisions have treasury officers been removed for fail ure to do what he seems to have neglected. 1 he decisions invariably have been that an auditor was not merely a clerk to certify to arithmetically accurate accounts, but an offi cer delegated specially to inquire into ac counts at his discretion, otherwise there would be no check on wholesale fraud in all the de partments. The newspapers, however, will tie likely to supply any omissions. Hinds, the disappointed contractor who recently made a fuss in the papers, is here full of facts and vengeance, which he is doling ont in quantities to suit to a JNew lork paper, He has shown no signs of giving out, and may be depended upon to keep on deck so long as me ammunition lasts.

Four Hchoolboya Struck; Dead by Lightning Just at the Close of Base-Ball Came. Louisville, April 28. Heavy rain, hail and lightning prevailed in this city at 1 o'clock. Four boys, dragging a wagon in which they were riding, were killed in the west end by lightning. The accident oc curred at Twenty-sixth and Market streets. The boys were playing base-ball. Their ages ranged from twelve to fourteen years. The boys were pupils of a school, and the disaster happened during recess. 1 heir names are Lee Fleck. Joe Shulty, Will Tahalser and Harry Soety. The three first named died a few minutes after being taken to their homes in the neighborhood. The latter was burned beyond recognition. Their game was just concluded and the bell summoning them to their school duties was ringing, thereby causing the boys to be in the same spot where their coats and hats had been placed before they began their game as the flash struck the earth. The boys were for a moment obscured from sight, so vivid was the lightning. When the few people in the neighborhood again looked toward the boys they were all flat on the ground. Two gen tlemen ran to the spot, and to their horror discovered four dead faces upturned in the direction of the sky, from which they had but shortly before received their last summons. Two other boys, stunned, lay near their companions. The gentlemen quickly procured water and quenched the fire in the clothing of the hoys, as well as stamping out the flames, which were fast burning the parts of their apparel which had been torn from their bodies. Vain ef forts had previously been made to revive the boys, all of whom appeared lifeless, and fonr of whom were recognized as positively dead. Drs. G. W. Griffith, Given and Dougherty. who arrived shortly after the accident, exam ined the boys and found that four out of tlie six had been struck dead. The lightning cul minated directly over Wm. Soete, the son of the teacher, to whose class all the boys be longed. 1 lie spot oi earth which bears the marks of the bolt could be covered by a bushel measure. The surface of the crround is but little disturbed, and resembles a hole which might have been driven in by a crow bar. On the ground, two or three feet from the spot where the bolt entered, could be seen, when the reporter visited the place, pieces of clothing, parts of shirts, drawers, suspenders and fragments of boots, all burned and blackened by the electric tire, resembling a mass of chopped up rags, baked, ready for the manufacture of paper. Young Soete was worse disfigured than any of the rest His clothes were literally burned from his body, and pieces of scorched cloth ing were picked up on the spot where he fell. His body wa. burned to a crisp and black ened ana scarred in a horrible manner. A piece of his undershirt, picked up by a re porter, looks like a rag which had been burn ing on a stove and was suddenly extinguished Dy a uasn oi water. The Star Route System to be Sifted. New York, April 27. Postmaster-Gen eral James arrived here this morning, for the purpose of ' attending the funeral of his old friend, Samuel P. Russell, of Brooklyn. .Mr. j ames re I used to be interviewed regard ing the star service, but a friend very near to the postmaster-general, and who, no doubt shares his confidence, expressed himself as follows: "In this matter measures, not men, are being investigated. This is not an inves tigation of Mr. Brady, or of any particular 1erson, but ot the whole contract svstem, and may say this matter will be probed to the bottom, and if the system be found corrupt those implicated must Buffer." A Difference of Opinion. New York, April 28. Messrs. Welsh, sugar importers, take exception to the state ment in the Washington dispatches last night, that the ruling in their suit against Collector Merritt, as to the coloring of -sugar, was di rectly opposed to the ruling of the judge in the l'irot case, in Baltimore, in 1877, and cite the language of the judge in the latter case to show that the decisions are nearly, if not altogether akin. Osgood Welch says that the person who furnished the statement to the Washington reporter was, to say the least, ignorant of the facta in the case. Lake Erie Kavifallon Reopened. Toledo, April 28. The steamer Morley, which left Erie yesterday, has arrived here and reports proceeding "through the rotten ice without difficulty. The steamers Graves and Hopkins, and schooners Adams and Casey left this port last night for Erie, and the steamers Cormorant and Pelican leave for the same destination to-day. Naviga tion between the two ports is conceded open for the season. A SMALL SCOW, Used as a Temporary Ferry Since the Fox Elver Bridge at Elgin was Washed Awaj, Capsized in Mid stream, Throwing Hs Load of Passengers, Consisting- of Men and School Children, into the Seething, Eddying: Waves A N umber of Persons Drowned Sad Result of a Dangerous -Venture. Vtiw Tt r A M OO "It -1 o J n o'clock this morning a small boat running over the Fox river, between East and West Elgin as a ferry, to take the place of the bridge recently washed away, was capsized, ana an me passengers, to the number oi about fifteen, with but one exception, were drowned. The boat was a mere scow, iust purchased at a cost of $150, and was pro pelled by a rope. The first trip was made yesterday'afternoon. Those lost are mainly 1 1 l ., . r bcuuoi cniiaren wno were on weir way to school on the west side. The accident oc curred in midstream, but from what cause cannot now be told. It is not possible at this time to give the names of any of the lost, as many have been crossing both ways all the morning, and .it was not known who were on the craft The ferry was crossing the Fox river this morning, and was in the middle of the stream, when it cap sized suddenly. The passengers, of whom probably thirty-three were little eirls. were swept down the current, uttering heart-rend ing cries ior assistauoe. several were rescued with boats. The body of John Creighton's daughter, aged twelve years, was recovered, and she is said to have been resuscitated.. Twenty persons are known to have been saved. Among the missing are Thos. Mur phy, aged thirty years; Leo Taylor, aged sixteen, and Guy Carlisle, a boy. The ferry was seventy-five by fifteen feet, and when first used yesterday was condemned by the public at once. One report is that about fifty per sons were drowned, but Jl is almost impos sible to get trustworthy facts as to the num ber on board and the saved and lost. ANOTHER ACCOUNT. An appalling disaster occurred here this morning, which has brought sorrow into nearly every house in the city. The recent flood has done great pecuniary damage to this vicinity, but amon? the other disasters that which has inflicted the most discomfort is the washing away of the bridges across the Fox river, which have been daily tra versed by great crowds of school children and operatives in the factories across the river from here. The council at once or dered a temporary ferry. A sm all scow was rigged to a wire cable, and made its first trip last evening amid the jeers of the crowd, wno suspected its value trom tlie start On its second trip this morning, when over loaded and nearly dipping its edges in the whirling, eddying stream, still swelled by brooks and meadows, it yielded to a strong wave, and with its living freight of thirty men and children waa overturned in midstream, and the whole number were in an instant precipitated into the mad cur rent and whirled away down the stream utter ing piercing shrieks and making the wild outcries peculiar to drowning persons. Those on the bank who witnessed the horriblesight set about rescuing those who kept their heads above water, and there were some daring acts of bravery, and more persons were picked np in small boats and drawn ashore by means of ropes than would seem possible. The disas ter does' not now appear to be jo bad as at first reported. Sixteen pessons are known to be saved, ten persons are missing and four are known to be drowned. There is intense excitement in the city, and hundreds of per sons are ousiiy engaged in dragging, NAMES OF THE SAVED AND MUSING. A frightful calamity occurred in this city this morning by the swamping of a ferryboat used in crossing the river at Chicago Btreet It is estimated that thirty passengers were upon the boat and only fourteen have been saved. Ihe boat was crossing the river from the west side and when nearly two-thirds over began to flood with water. The passen gers in utter consternation immediately locked to the dry part of the boat, clinging to the railing which, giving way, precipi tated them into the river. As the water was pouring into the boat it sank lielow the sur face, leaving thirty human souls battling for life in the angry current. The water at this point is fully fifteen feet deep, and the cur rent is at least b!x miles per hour. Yester day the boat, which was ordered by the city council as soon as the iron bridge fell last week, made its first ran, and it is only a mat ter of surprise that the accident had not oc curred sooner. The boat is only eleven by eighteen feet, and does not stand more than six inches above water. Much indignation is felt against both the council and the build ers of the boat So far as ascertained the following are among the saved: V. W. H. Pantan, Dr. Von Koepring, Roberat Eagin, Patrick Sullivan, John Collins, John Kirk patrick, William Long, Peter Johnson, L. Olson, A. Harristown, L. D. Eastman, two littlegirls named Emma Barringer and Ber tha Kahns and a farmer unknown. These were reached by boats sent to their assistance and by boards. Those missing and known to have been on the boat are Thomas Murphy, Andrew Dawson, John Carbin, Guy Carlysle, Leo Taylor, William ColevUle, Elmer Fos ter and a little girl named Francis Carington. A. Simond, of New York, and J. S. Lock wook,of Rockford, guests at the Waverly, are missing, and as they intended crossing on the boat it is believed they are lost The river is being dragged, but no bodies have yet been found. A low estimate would place the number drowned at twelve or fifteen. Arkansas State Medical Society. Little Rock, April 28. Tne State Medi cal association to-day elected R. G. Jennings president; G.

THE HISTORY OF A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS, Prosecuted Upon the Principles of Truth and Honesty. No Statement Made that Will Not Stand the Test of Proof. ' W refer to tbe Wonderful Success that bas attended the Introduction of Dr. C. W. Benson's Celery and Chamomile Pills Into tbe Whole Country. They are prepared expressly to cure 8ick Head ache, Nervous Headache, Neuralgia, Nervousness, Sleeplessness and Indigestion, and the facts prove that they do and wiH cure these disease every time where the cause is not of an orgaulc nature. The demand for these Pills is so large that it is now supplied with difficulty, as, for instance, the sales of Friday, October Sd, were 3627 boxes. We take the following notice from the Baltimore Sun, the leading paper published at Dr. Benson's own home: " A Remarkable Enterprise The Bret public notice of these pills appeared three yearn ago to day, and in thin ort time their merits have spread ail over the land, and even abroad as far as India. Dr. Benson's Celery and Chamomile Pills are read of In the morning papers of London, Belfast and Dublin as extensively aa in Baltimore or New York, and their sale has increased from a few boxes per day to thousands of boxes, giving employment to a number of hands, and are found for sale in over twenty (20.000) thousand stores and shops. The Doctor's omee is 106 North Eutaw street, where daily many visitors call to consult him and get his pills." Hun, June 8, 1877. The secret of success Is twofold. First, the need of them is very great; and secondly, it is the only thing thaj has ever been found, in the profession or out of it, that would actually and permanent y cure those diseases, so that everybody who takes them becomes a walking and talking advertise ment for them. One box, taken in a neighbor hood, has been followed and traced to selling $50 worth at one postomce. They are indoed a valua ble preparation, and no nervous person ought to be without them. They not only save from suffer ing, but save and projong life by preventing pa ralysis, apoplexy and heart disease; and they per mancntly cuic headache, neuralgia, nervousness sleeplessness and indigestion. These Pills are sold by all wholesale and retai druggists, and by G. W. JONES 4 CO., Memphis, Tenn. Price SO cents per box, or six boxes for f2 50, postage free.
