Result of Strike of Stationary Fire
; Wilkesbarre, Pa., July 16.— strike
of stationary firemen began this morning.
About 700 men are idle in this region.
Many of the mines had to close down,
throwing out of work, it is estimated,
15,000 men.
The 1,500 employes of the Kingston Coal
company went on strike this morning in
obedience to an order issued last night by
the executive committee of district No. 1,!
United Mine Workers. The strike was,
ordered because of a reduction in the
"wages paid for "yardage" on narrow work
in the mines. The company has been pay
ing $1.60 per yard, but last pay day it is
claimed the men were informed a reduc
tion to $1 per yard was made.
President Mullahy of the state associa
tion said that up to 10 a. m. he had reports
from the entire Wyoming district of the
anthracite region and only five collieries
"were working. President Mullahy esti
mates that 50,000 men are idle. The coal
companies have pressed into service their
foremen and fire boss-es. who will be em
ployed as firemen for the time being. This
la necessary in order to keep the pumps
running and the mines free from water.
At some of the collieries hoisting engi
neers who were asked to work with the
new men refused and quit their posts. The
Delaware & Hudson company has two
mines working, and the officials say they
have enough firemen to keep the pumps
running. Several manufacturing concerns
gave in to the demands of the firemen to
day, among them the Wilkesbarre Lace
company, employing 1.200 hands, and the
Hazard Rope Works, employing 1,000 men.
The Wilkesbarre & Wyoming Valley Trac
tion company officials told their firemen
to go to work at the increase.
A conservative estimate places the num- |
«for of men idle at 43,000. This includes
the men out in the Scranton district. Only
about 800 of these are firemen. The bal
ance is made up of minors, laborers, engi
neers, breaker boys and machinists em
ployed in and about the collieries. Every
mine from Pittston to Nanticoke is af
fected. When the whistles* blew at 7
o'clock for work the firemen refused to
report for duty and orders were then is
sued by the superintendents to close down.
Scranton, Pa., July 16. —All the firemen
of stationary engines at the Delaware &
Hudson, Erie and Ontario & Western
Railroad companies' mines in the upper
part of the Lackawanna valley, from
Peckville to Forest City, struck to-day for
an eight-hour day without reductioo of
pay. The result forced a complete shut
down of twenty colleries and the idle
ness of 12,000 mine-workers. The mine
firemen between OliDhant and Old Forge
met here last night and endorsed the ac
tion, to become effective at 5 p. m. to-day.
This will close fully fifty more mines and
no less than 25,000 mine-workers will be
Shipping Tied lp,
Porta Costa, Cal., July 16.—Four hundred
men who handle freight in the warehouses
fcere have gone out on strike. Work in all
the warehouses from Xevada dock to Crock
ett, as well as the Croekett sugar refinery, is
at a standstill, and shipping is completely
tied up. The men presented an ultimatum
to their employers. They asked for $3 a day
for nine hours and time and a half for all
overtime. The warehouses offered a raise of
5 cents per hour, which would be 30 cents an
hour for ten hours' work, but refused to
recognize the men as a union.

New York Sum Special Smrvlmm.
New York, July 16.—The romance of j
Mabel Strong, the young girl from Cleve-;
land who was deceived by a hotel beat,
came to an end on Sunday, when she died
of consumption in St. Luke's hospital. She
was the daughter of Clayton E. Strong, a
well-to-do citizen of Cleveland. She, rail
away last year and came to this city with
Charles W. Wildrick, son of the late Lieu
tenant Colonel Abram C. Wildrick, U. S. A.
They lived at the Hotel Girard as Mr. and
Mrs. Gordon Stirling till their money ran
short. . •■
The woman, then in the first stages of
consumption, suffered greatly from lack
of food and proper treatment, but ebe
stood by her companion until she became
so ill that the manager of the hotel inter
fered and had her taken to a sanatorium.
That was last April. On April 23 Wildrick
was arrested on the complaint of Manager
Hamblyn of the hotel, who charged him
with trying to defraud the hotel out of
$370. Wildrick is in the penitentiary for
six months.
While his case was pending in the West
Side police court Mis? Strong heard of his
plight and insisted upon going to see him.
In the police court she was so pitifully
weak and ill that she was unable to go up
stairs to the cell where Wildriek waa
locked up, so he was sent to her. The
meeting was one of the most pathetic in
the memory of the police court attend
ants. The sympathies of the crowd were
all with the woman. Magistrate Brann'b
eyes moistened when the invalid said that
she would go to the man she loved if she
dropped dead at his cell door.
In the police court she told who she wae
and where she belonged. Her father was
informed of her illness and misfortunes,
and he came to this city and had his
daughter sent to St. Luke's hospital as a
private patient.
Sir John Gordon Sprigs Insist* That
the South African Situation Is
More Cheerful.
Cape Town, July 16.—Sir John Gordon
Sprigg, in an address before the vigilance
committee, expressed the opinion that the
aspect of affairs was more hopeful to
day than at any time since the outbreak
of hostilities. Communications were
passing between General Lord Kitchener
and the Cape government regarding the
best course to be taken with the view
to bringing the war to a speedy close.
Mr. Sprigg was satisfied that such an ar
rangement would be reached between
General Kitchener and the Cape govern
ment, and that a very considerable im
provement might be looked forward to in.
a short time. He believed the Cape par
liament Mould meet before the end of Oc
tober, and was confident the government
would have sufficient majority to carry
any necessary measures. Mr. Sprigg said
he was entirely satisfied that as long as
Lord Salisbury remained in power there
would be no shadow of anything in the
nature of going back. He deprecated the
suspension of responsible government, as
it might possibly cause changes in the
position of the British political parties.
London, July 16.—The last has not been
heard of military censorship in England,
notwithstanding Lord Kitchener's blunt
telegrams. While the Boer commanders
may be so demoralized and scattered that
neither General Botha nor De Wet. can
put an end to atrocities such as the
massacre of the wounded, if their atten
tion be called to them, the public, it is
maintained, has a right to know what is
going on, especially when the pro-Boers
on the continent and in England are
charging the British army with conduct
ing an inhuman campaign. This is the
opinion of the English press, which has
united in condemning the military ar
rangements for keeping the country in.

Details of General French's combined
attack upon Scheepers' stronghold are

not so complete as had been expected
from the employment of a series of

French will need to set another trap.
Dead Congressman Sharply- Criti
cized in a Funeral Sermon.
How York Sun Soaoiai Strv/om.
Bluff ton, Ind., July 16.—The R«v. Clar
ence Miller, castor of the First Presby
terian church of this city, delivered a ser
mon at the funeral of former Congress
man A. BE. Martin which caused a sensa
tion all over the district.
Passing lightly over the virtues of the
dead man, the minister held up to view his
vices, md gave a scathing review of the
congressman's life. He said it would have
been far better if Mr. Martin had been
shot on the field of battle than to have
lived to lead the life he did. There was
great indignation on the part of the mem
.bers of the bar.
Mr. Martin's wife and daughter were, of
course, in attendance and the daughter
broke down and sobbed bitterly when she
heard her father's Vife arraigned. Grand
Army men, who had charge of the serv
ices, were indignant. Miller said after
ward :
I did what I thought was right. I knew
Mr. Martin much better than people thought
I did. I was reared in the county in Penn
sylvania adjoining bis old home and I have
been his personal friend nearly all his life.
I said no more than what I believe he would
have said had he been in nay place. In fact,
he expressed the same ideas to a friend in
Marion shortly befcre he died.

on the 13th and 14th, with .temperatures | ran
ging from 97 to 105 degrees on the last-named

counties there is some damage to wheat by
blight, and in other parts of the south It la
said that it is ripening too rapidly. The
splendid 'condition of the soil, as regards
moisture, is regarded as a great help to
grains in resisting the effect of the heat. In

provement now that the water has receded.

wheat, and now that the rye is cut and other
small grains are getting hard, they are go

small crop is saved in southeastern counties,

Graceville, Minn., July —Although
the thermometer has. been hovering
around the century mark, no injury worth
mentioning has been done to the small
grain. So far the. season has been an ideal
one for wheat, and the farmers of this
section expect to begin harvesting a dupli
cate of the bumper crop of 1895 in less
than a week.
New Ulm, Minn., July —Reports from
the country are to the effect that the ex
treme high temperature of 103 Saturday
and 104 Sunday and light rain yesterday
have seriously damaged crops in south
eastern Minnesota. Chinch bugs have been ■
at work also, and crops which promised
well ten days ago are being cut for fodder
in some places. The wheat yield will be
about fifteen bushels for Brown county.
Stephen, Minn., July 16.—The heat of
the past week has been beneficial to crops.
A large yield is promised on the high
lands, while the lowland crop "will bo

Northfield, Minn., July 16.—Chinch bugs
have done a great amount of damage to
crops the past week. Wheat, rye and bar
ley are especially injured.
Long Prairie, Minn., July 16.—The crop
prospects are bountiful, but it is feared
some damage may have been done by the
hot weather.
Sherburn, Minn., July 16.—The heat

Sioux Falls, S. D., July 16.—There is
general rejoicing throughout the state
over the great change in the weather
last evening, when a number of days of
the hottes| weather in the history of the
state was succeeded by a delightfully cool
wind from the northwest and rains in
many parts of the state. The change un
doubtedly prevented considerable injury
to crops. According to reports made by
persons who have traveled through the
rural portions of this part of the state
for the express purpose of looking into
crop conditions, little damage was done
by the extremely hot and dry weather.
Among those who investigated crop con
ditions was Porter P. Peck, one of the
best known residents of Sioux Falls.
"I gave special attention to small
grain," said he, "and covered, I think,
about twenty miles on my trip. I can
truthfully say that I did not find a single
field of grain that I would say was dam
aged to the extent of 5 per cent. I do not
believe that small grain in this section is
damaged to any great extent; If it is I
have been unable to find it. I predict not
only a good crop in Minnehaha county.but
believe we will harvest an old-time bum
per crop."
"I have been paying considerable atten
tion to small grain," said J. S. Brown,
another of the gentlemen who personally
investigated the croc situation, "and so
far I have been unable to find any fields
that are hurt. I have examined many
fields closely, but they all seem good to
me. Corn was standing the dry spell in
fine shape. In. fact, the ground was so
well filled with water when the dry spell
set in that I do not believe corn would
suffer if we did not get a drop of rain
for the next two weeks. Small grain has
so far advanced that I believe that the
only thing that would hurt it would be a
heavy hail or rain storm. Look out for
big crops is my prophecy."
T. G. Summers, of this city, has in 200
acres of whe«.t. He had heard so much
talk about small grain being injured that
he got frightened and drove out to make
an inspection. He was most agreeably
surprised at what he saw. He states that
his wheat and practically all the rest
that he looked at is all right. He found
on some sandy spots that the wheat was
injured slightly, but these places were few
and far between. It is his opinion that
some of the oats is injured, but to just
what extent he could not say.
Yankton, S. D., July 16.—The crops
stood the drought remarkably well. This
was due to the favorable conditions which
prevailed in May and June. On July 1 the
ground was well saturated with water and
crops in this section of the state were
never known to give promise of a better
harvest at that time of the year. But the
dry, hot winds of the last two weeks have
almost exhausted the supply. The outlook
for a laxge crop of corn is still good.
Early potatoes will be a big crop. The
damage from grasshoppers will be consid
erable in some sections. These grass
hoppers do not move about in swarms liko
those which did so much damage in the
state in the early seventies, but remain in
the fields in which they happen to be
Madison, S. D., July 16.—While many
conflicting reports as regards crop con
ditions in this part of the country have
been given circulation at the hands of
alarmists, the prospects as they appear
to-day give assurance of the biggest har
vest this portion of South Dakota has
ever known. The crops were in excellent
condition prior to the hot spell. To as
certain the exact condition in this (Lake)
county, Tbe Journal's representative
has personally visited and inspected the
crops throughout the country tributary to
this city. From careful observations and
interviews n-ith farmers, the statement
that' the harvest here will surpass all pre
vious records, is made without "coloring"
or any desire to misrepresent the facts.
The percentage of., land sown to wheat is
materially smaller this year than has
been the r>ast custom. Corn acreage in
many case 3 has been almost doubled at the
expense of wheat. In fact, wheat acreage
has fallen off almost one-half from that
of former years. Barley is receiving an
unusually large amount of attention, also,
and the acreage is far in excess of former
seasons. The bulk of this crop is al
ready cut and the yield is said to be a
Oats acreage is unchanged,and the yield
promises to be a good one. The rye crop,
which was not a popular product here,
has been in the stack for some time. Flax
looks fine and with favorable weather the
yield will be good. Not the least gratify
ing was the splendid present, stand of
corn. This crop, which locally is the most
extensive one. has jumped to the front
with remarkable rapidity, and has attained
unprecedented proportions for this time of
year. The proverbial"knee high" stand on
the. Fourth of ; July is not in it; at all.
From three to four feet is the Waverage:
stand.:. One field visited was particularly j
line and contained over 160 acres with an
average stand of over four feet. ;" This
field was on the farm of A. W. Holdridge,
one of the first settlers in South Dakota.
Xt: On the .whole, South Dakota ■„ farmers
probably ; never f elt g more r content than
now. Generally speaking, crop prospects
have rarely, if ever, warranted a feeling of
greater confidence than this year.
What this situation means for South Da
kota can scarcely be overestimated. Dur
ing- the past three years of good times,
prosperity and plenty, the farmers have
made money. They have paid off their
debts, have stocked up their farms in
modern fashion, have built new houses
and barns and put themselves •in prime
condition for successful living and farm-:
ing. This crop will yield them a heavy
profit which will remain both as working
capital and a fund for further improve
ments and further investment |in stock—
an industry that is rapidly growing in the
The one drawback, being experienced
here this year is the help problem: . There
is. a marked absence of harvest hands,
and great difficulty in procuring sufficient
help to handle the big crop now seems
inevitable. Wages of $2.25 and $2.50 per
day with beard are offered. - ; '
Huron, S. D., July 16.— intense heat
which prevailed here and over the Jim
river valley for the past twelve days, was
abated by a series of showers yesterday.
They were light, but sufficiently copious
to be of incalculable benefit to crops;
wheat will be specially benefitted, and
corn, although standing the hot winds
and intense heat for so long a period,
will be given a boost that will soon put
it beyond the stage of development at this
date last year. The oat crop, which gave
promise of being unusually heavy, will not
fall as far below the estimate as supposed;
samples brought to the city to-day were
very good, and although somewhat
"scorched," were of fair quality. The ef
fect of heat u»on the wheat crop can be
better estimated a day or two later; the
change to cool weather, ; accompanied ,by
rain, is likely to repair much of the
damage. In this immediate vicinity the
injury is chiefly to the late-sown and
earlier sown where the stand is light.
Even should the shrinkage be as great as
estimated on Friday and Saturday, there
will yet be a pretty heavy crop. Farmers
are anxious about help; there is a scar
city of men in almost every neighborhood,
and unles3 help | comes in there, will be
trouble in saving the crop; harvest will
be on in a short time and help must be at
hand within a very few days.
-Huron, S. D., July 16.—Light rains and
cool temperature yesterday and to-day
are having a beneficial effect upon the
crops, particularly on wheat. Farmers in
the city this morning express the opinion
that much of the late sown wheat which
suffered most from heat will make a fair
crop, while the earlier wheat is not as
seriously injured as was supposed. Con
tinued cool weather and moisture \is
hoped for during the next few days. Corn
is tasseling and in good condition. *'.
Brookings, S. D.,: July 16. —From reports
gathered from different parts of the coun

to the wheat crop. Corn, oats and bar

His. Friends .Think He Can Be Gov
ernor of lowa.
The Antti-Cunimins Arguments as
They Are Now Set Forth, in
the State.
Special to The Journal.
Stuart, lowa, July 16—This city is the
home of John Herriott, one of the re
publican candidates for governor, and the
developments of the past ten days lead
his friends here to think he will be the
nominee. They base this upon the
grounds that he has more positive
strength than any other candidate ex
cept Cummins, and naturally there will
be an attempt to uttite the field against
the leading candidate. His friends here
are very indignant at the course being
pursued by the opposition. A Dcs Moines
paper, democratic, but an ardent sup
pcrter of Cummins, says that the Cum
mins managers are lauglung at the pre
tense that Herriott's vote in his home
district will stand by hin* even on the
first ballot. It is safe to t«ay that every
vote in the ninth district will stand by
Herriott as long as he wants" them to do
There are other reasons why the Her
riott men are hopeful. It is becoming a
conviction among the conservative re
publicans that the bad feeling engendered
in the contest will be detriments to the
party if either Cummins or Trewin is
nominated. Cummins has earnest opposi
tion among church people and prohibi
tionists because he bolted Larrabt*3 for
governor and was elected to the legisla
ture as a democrat and voted for a re
districting bill, which if it had cariled,
would have resulted in the defeat of .Al
lison in 1890. when witM favorable d'a
tri<cts he had but three majority on joirA'.
The contest in Jackson county has had
a denidely unpleasant impression upon
the people when the interests of the lead
ing candidates are considered. It was
announced that the county was practically
colid for Cummins, but when the con
vention was held almost one-hail", if not
an actual majority, feeling aggrieved over
the refusal of the temporary chairman
to permit a roll call, bolted and elected a
contesting delegation. Clinton county is
not for Cummins, unless it should prove
of advantajje for its local candidate to
have the votes cast that way. Scott, it is
reported, is not solid for Cummins, as has
been claimed, but six votes there will i
leave Cummine after the first ballot. ,
Muscatine. lowa, and Johnson counties
are having headed contests with results j
in doubt, where two weeks ago they were |
counted for Cummins.
Herriott's friends take these things
to mean that there is a reaction going on
over the state against Cummins and they
feel sure that either be or Senator Har
riman will be nominated.
