The day of the cash hoy Is drawing to a close, as
to invention has appeared which is destined to
entirely supersede that hitherto s incy, but useful
member of society. The ladles who thronged
Woodward & Lothrop's Boston dry goods house,
Pennsylvania avenu", between 9th and 10th ftreets,
this morning, witnessed the Lamson automatic
j cash carrier system In full operation. It may be
described briefly as an elevated railroad, on which
hollow wooden globes, freighted with cash and
bills are sent to and from the cashier
and the salesman. 44This Is -our cashbo
v," said Mr. Lothrop to a Stab reporter
taking up one of the globes and exhibiting It to
the reporter. The globe Is divided Into hemispheres,
which are locked together by turning one
upon the other. When a customer tenders pay!
rn?-nt for goods the cash is placed and locked, as
described, In this globe. In order to prevent any
aberration in the movement of the ball, the contents
are held firmly In the center by springs. The
freighted ball Is then placed In a little elevator,
I which Is hauled to an upper track, where It Is discharged
from the elevator by an Ingenious
arrangement, and at once begins Its Journey down
a long Incll n to the cashier. Here the right
change Is placed In the ball, which is started back
on another Incline, and Is discharged automatl;
cally Into a little box or receiver at the hand of
the salesman. The wooden globe performs its
errand with a promptness and regularity seldom
attained by the most dutiful and ambitious cashboy
There are two tr acks running along
each side of the store to the cashier's elevated
desk, the upper one being Inclined towards the
cashier and the lower one away from him. The
balls are of different sizes, and though there are a (
dozen balls following one another In rapid succes- j (
slon,the right ball alwas goes to the right place, as j
the automatic trap which discharges it Is so adIusted
that It only operates on the ball of the size
^longing to the box beneath. The successful operation
of the system this morning was witnessed
by eiany people, the constant and rhythmical
click of the balls making a very cheerful and
agreeable accompaniment for the prosy details of
business.

Correspondence of The Evening Star.
Cumberland, Md., May 16, 1882.?Tour correspondent
has recently passed through the mineral
regions of Allegany county, viewing the many
changes and Improvements that have taken place ;
In tuls section within the past ten years. The |
mineral region of this section of the state In which '
lies Imbedded Immeasurable wealth for this and j
coming generations, is ever productive of vast interest
and speculation. The developments and i
enterprises which have been pushed forward here
within the past thirty years have been of plgantlc
magnitude. It would appear to the visitor that i
science and art have exhibited their pro- [
gress to an extent equalled only by the trrandeur
and beauty* of the picturesque scenery which j
everywhere opens up a panorama of varied splen- j
dor. Populous and enterprising towns and vil- !
lages, handsome private residences of the most j i
improved and aitistlc style of architecture have >
sprung up, indicating the enormous amount of j
capital wnich annually seeks investment in the!,
cod fields, and which, though often subjected to
serious obstructions, is regarded as safe and reinunera'lve.
This whole region of country appears
to be traversed with a vast network of railroads,
which have been constructed by wealthy
corporations. The scream of the steam whistle
rings aloni; every valley; and the Iron horse can be
seen wending his way over the mountain steeps,
higher than where the eagle builds her nest. Hut
with all this display of enterprise It Is apparent
that business operations are suffering. If not
entirely prostrated, by reason of the clash of capital
and labor.
the strike of the miners
still continues, and there seems to be little Indication
of an early and satisfactory adjustment. The ,
companies and miners are not the only sufferers ;
from this state of afl ilrs, but the consequences are i
prrmo.itin? every class aud trade, reaching and
affecting the largest business oi>erations throughout
the st it \ If the comoanies believe they can
obtain labor at a reduced price they have a
legal right to do so; whether It is fair and Just
under the creum-tances is another matter.
The Consolidation coal comomy to-rlay paid off
al! its railro ?d employes. The one thousand miners
belonging to this company, who are on a strike,
would have been palito-uay, had tlxey been at
work during the past month, $75,000. I understand \
that hist year the treasurer of this company paid
out $<J<,0,0'?0 to the miners, and it Is said that tlie (
combined companies paid out about $10,000 dally .
to their employes. ,
In the spring of 1881 the George's Creek and 1
Cumberland railroad had qu'.te a controversy
with the Baltimore and Ohio railroad regarding
the crossing ol the former road over the latter in
the city of Cumberland. The miners of the who!e j
r- glon were in sympathy with the new road at the
time, from the fact that a crossing at Cumberland
was necessary to enable the new road (which was 1
then shipping by the Pennsylvania railroad only) ,
to reach tlie Chesapeake and Ohio canal basin and <
thus secure an additional outlet for the coal ship- ;
ped over the oeorge's Creek and Cumberland railroad.
The sympathy of the men went so far as to ]
cause them to offer to go down to Cumberland in a <
body an 1 put the crossing in at all hazards.
It wlil be remembered that quite a number ,
of miners came down here at the re- i
quest of Henrv I/>veridge, the president ]
of the road, but their serv ices were not required, j
as the Baltinore and Ohio Co. laid the crossing
themselves, and thus put an end to the contro- i
versy. Henry Loverl Ige expressed his gratitude ]
to the men, and promis *d them a free rifle from >.
Lonaconing to Cumberland as soon as they could
spare the extra cars and locomotives, and also told
them that should they ever need a friend to call
on him, and he would serve them to tlie best of his
ability. President Loveridge fulfilled his promise,
and has been giving free excursions from Ixrnaconing
to Cumberland lately at the rate of twenty
families ea< h day.
The trip from Cumberland to Piedmont via the
Cumberland an l Pennsylvania railroad Is a delightful
one at tills season of tbe year. The railroad
runs through a valley eighteen miles long,
between Dan's mountain and the Great Sivage
range, and from the time we left Cumberland the
route on either side was dotted at frequent intervals
with little mining villages, which appeared
to overflow from the mouths of the Inevitable coal I
mine "drifts" to be found n close proximity. At
each of tlie small mining stations the platform was
crowded with bronzed miners, a large percentage
being of stalwart and muscular build, and nearly
all having the Inevitable pipe between their teeth.
With hands plunged deep in breeches pocket, the
slouch hats canted rakishly on one side, and a ;
phlegmatic air, they looked as If striking agreed
with them. The scene at each station was but the
repetition of the preceding one, find when we j
reached Piedmont we were convinced from personal
observation that there was
NOT A STROKE OF WORK
being done in any mine in the whole valley. The
strike cannot fall to be demoralizing in its effect,
w!d h will be more widespread than one would
suppose. This whole region, which is so thickly
populated by men, who ordinarily earn comfortable
wages, Li one of the best sections In the state
for commercial business. The miners live well. '
some of them luxuriously for their class, ana
spend their money freely, thus making an active
demand for all classes of goods. In all the larger
towns, such as Frostburg, Mt. Savage, Lonaconing,
Borden Shaft, Barton and Pompey Smash, the
number of stores Is remarkably large, and, of
course, the entire valley is overrun with drummers,
mostly from Baltimore and Pittsburg.
The companies claim to have $75,000,000 worth of
property in this region?a statement generally discredited,
since they only pay taxes on $13,000,000,
and, as an independent man said to me, it would
appear that they are "only playing a game of
bluff." Still there remains the fact that the twelve
companies operating in this section may elect to
divert their capital Into other channels, and in that
"case the struggle will be a long and bitter one.
According to the Pittsburg IxitMjr Tribune, the
affair will be a vital one, and the.men will receive
in money or kind all the support they require.
There arc estimated to be
MORE THAN A MILLION OF KSIGHTS OF LABOR,
and such a combination is sum-lently rich and
formidable to enable the strikers to outstay almost
j-iijr cvirpuruuua me operators could form. In the
meantime what is to become of the Chesapeake
and Ohio canal, which gives employment, In a
busy season, to
OVER TWO THOUSAND IfKN?
The canal has made Cumberland what It Is, and
If that great work goes down, Cumberland will
suiter, it Is feared, Just as Harper's Ferry did when
the great government works were taken away.
The canal suffered last year by the delay In regard
to the railroad crossing, and none of Its emDloyes
have been paid for over four months. W. M. G.
F?!ght of Cakrikr Pigeons.?A flock of carrier
pigeons arrived in this city yesterday from the
loitsof John Abel, a Baltimore merchant. The
birds were consigned and placed under the care
i of Grant Parish, editor of the Poultry 7terteir,who
will, as per instruction, liberate them promptly
at 12 o'clock Moniay.from the dome of the Capitol.
The Newark (N. J.) Horning club will also In a
few days forward a large flock of carriers to compete
for a handsome prize, offered by Mr. Parish
to the owner of the winning bird. The Horning
carrier "Always Heady," will be in the flock ana
compete for the prize. He is the champion of
America, having flown from Plainfleld, Indiana,
to his home In Newark, a distance of 850 miles,

National Theater.?The performances at the
National last night and Thursday night were of a
most assuring character to the many people who
bare predicted a successful histrionic career
for Miss Margaret Lanner. That young lady,
though essaying roles -that would make no ordln- .
ary demand upon the resources of emotional actresses
of long experience and training, has given
most satisfactory performances. Mr. Robert L
Downing, for his excellent rendition of the parts
assigned him, has shared with Miss Lanner the
Just applause bestowed upon the performances.
To-night Miss Lanner will appear In "The New
Maedalen."
Theater ( omiquk.?Manager Snelbaker Is offering
at the Comlque a most attractive variety
bill.
Capital Theater.?The burlesque, minstrel and
specialty performance at the Capital Theater Is
applauded every night by lar^e audiences.
Driver's Gardkn Theater has taken a front
place among the attractive resorts of the city.
"The Chimes op Normandy" will be presented
with a very strong cast at the National by the
Washington Operatic Association, on the occasion
of Mr. Kinsley's benefit, on Monday evening, the
29th Inst.
Mr.T. B. Bishop, the comedian, will appear as
Major Wellington De Boot* at Ford's Opera House
m'Xt Tuesday evening on the occasion of the complimentary
benefit tendered to Mr. Jos. S. Sessford.
Tns Lawrence Barrett Dramatic Ci.ub will
present "Julius Cspsar" at the National Friday
evening, June 2d, and "The Merchant of Venice"
Saturday afternoon and evening, June 3d, the performance
being given under the auspices of the
Washington Light Infantry Corps. The efforts of
the members of the club in the past have commended
them to thejpubllc as ranking above the
ordinary amateurs. Having the benefit of artistic
costuming and complete stage accessories, they
give Interpretations of Shakespeare's dramas
which would be creditable to any company of oro
fessionals.
"The Death of Buddha" and the "Seven Gods
of Happiness," two famous pictures brought from
Buddhist temples, will be exhibited next week, at
the corner of Massachusetts avenue and I street
northwest, together with a representation of the
Garden of Eden, with statuary by Clark Mills.
On Monday, May i^th, Mrs. Adeline Duval
Mack's annual dramatic entertainment, assisted
by her pupils, will tike place at Furd's Opera
House. 8 enes from Shakspeare and other plays
will be pro luced under an efllclent management.
Mrs. Mack, on very short notice, played Lady Roy
on Thursday evening, In the New Magdalen, very
acceptably. The lady cast for the part was taken

Attention, Grocery Clerks.?The attention of
the grocery clerks of the District Is called to the
14 Grocery clerks' Protective Association," which
was organized November-14, 1881. A Star reporter,
in attending- Its last meeting, learned that
Its object Is to assist members when sick by .allowing
them a benefit of so much per week, and also
to assist them when out of employment. In case
of death of a member, an appropriation Is made
from the treasury of the association to pay to his
nearest legal heir. The association was organized
with twelve members, and has Increase! to over
sixty, with bright prospects of having one of the
largest organizations In the city. The initiation
fee Is $1 until July 1st, and dues 50 cents per month
for the present, being so small as to enable any
clerk to Join. It pays a larger benefit than any
other organization In the city, and has a good surplus
In Its treasury. The officers are: George C.
White, president; J. R. Fague, president pro tem.;
J. II. Brown, vice president; W. II. McKnew, secretary:
J. II. Gwynn, treasurer; W. H. Nash, sergeant-at-arms.
It win hold Its next meeting at
Shea's hall (632 Pa. ave. n.w.), on third lloor, on
Monday, May 221, at 8:30 p.m., when all clerks are
invited to attend. Copies of the constitution iind
blanks for application lor membership can be had

tne New Pastor of St. Matthew's Parish.?
Rev. p. L. Chappelle was yesterday officially notified
of his appointment as pastor of St Matthew's
church, in this city, to succeed the late Father
Boyle. F <ther Chappelle, who has for some years
been pastor or St Joseph's church In Baltimore,
an 1 returned from a European trip a few days ago.
paid a brief visit to his new charge in this city
ye-terday afternoon and returned to Baltimore.
Father Chappelle was born In the south of France
In 1812, and was educated partly in that country
and partly in Belgium. He came to the United
States In 1859. and studied theology at St Mary's
Seminary, Baltimore. He was ordained by Archbishop
Spaul ling in 1865. In 1869 lie went to the
Vatican council with Archbishop Gibbons as his
secretary. The Baltimore Sun speaking of his
appointment to St Matthew's says: "The parish
of St. Matthew's is one of the most Important in
the United States. The congregation is largely
composed of foreign diplomats. The first pastor
of the church was Rev. John Donalan, who was
succeeded by Rev. J. C. White. The next pastor
was Rev. F. E. Boyle, lately deceased."
Fish Market.?Sold by R. A. Golden, accent:

Ayee'? CatHabtio Pills are the best of all purgatives
for family use. They are the prodnct of long, laborious,
and successful chemical investigation, and their
extensive use, by phyeicians in their practice, andbv
all civilized n&lions, proves them the best and most
effectual purgative Pill that medical science can devise
Being purely vcgetuhle no harm can arise from their
use, and being sugar-ooatid, they are plaisant to take.
In intrinsic value and curative powers no other Pills can
be compared with them; and everv person, knowing
their virtues, will employ them, when needed. They
keep the system in fierfect order, and maintain in
healthy action the whole machinery of life. Mild,
searching and effectual, they axe especially adapted to
the needs of the digestive apparatus. derangements of
which they prevent and cure, if timely taken. Thev are
the be^t ana safest physic to employ for children and
weakened conatttutions, where a mild but effectual cathartic
is required.
