APRIL 29, 1881
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
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
Vice-President Cruppers, of the police
board, has notified the presidents of all the

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
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

railroad people would agree to arbitrate.
They replied that they would, and willingly,

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.
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.
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

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.

A N umber of Persons Drowned
Sad Result of a Dangerous
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

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.
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,
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.

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
