ron and steel makers made inquiries
this week forlirjte quantities of ma
terial in view of tbe strengthening of
prices within tbiitjr days. In some
qaaitsrs no apprehensions whatever
are felt of any permanent advance in
prices on account of the enormous
capacity fir iron and atecJ making,
which, if kept at its maximum limits
for a - few months, will supply the
heaviett possibU requirements. Mer
chant iron is firm. Kails are declin
ing, and are selling at $1 25. Steel
rails are $31 to $35. It wai given out
to-day that 20,000 tons of bridge iron
will be i laced in February for bridge
work to be erected during the coming
l he textile workers of New Eogland
have succeeded in establishing two
weeks' pay, in advancing wages 5 to 10
per cent., and in a good many cases
establishing arbitration as a means of
settling future laVor disputes. Sales
of wool in the leading wool market of
the East reached 3,000,000 pounds for
tbe piwt week, and manufacturers are
picking up tuppliea wherever they
can be fouud.
Textile re anufacturers, making car
' p eta, woolen and worsted hosiery and
knit goods, cloth and flrthing, are
everywhere Quite busv. with orders in
hand or that they, expect to" receive
within thirty days. 1verytnlng is of
a favorable character in the textile in
terests and within thirty days mora
machinery will be pnt into place in
this city and flew lorktoan has been
placed in prsition for four or five
months previously. All textilejpro ducts
will command prices ranging from 10
to zu per cent, higher than la t year,
wherein wool is the principal material.
Notwithstanding the upward tendency
in raw material and finished product,
traveling ugentH in the Sou t a and West
are sending on larger orders than they
did twelve months ato.
The complications in the anthracite
coal combination, it is given out to
day, will be settled within a week.
Several ffT.rts have been made to es
tablish a bituminous coal pool, but
the refusal of the Pennsylvania Com
pany to coopeiate and ito known de
termination to look utter its own coal
and traffic interests, is giving all com
petitors a Riod deal of concern. This,
however, promisee the small operators
in the interior of the Stats but little
advantage, nr it is tbe programme to
gobble them np one by one and ulti-
niataly p'uee tho bituminous coil in
terests in the center of the Bute in
the hands of the few.
The paper mills throughout the
New England and Middle Stated are
increasing their production of all kinds
of paper, but prices bava not corre
spondingly advanced. The improve
ment is taken up by the increased co3t
of raw material. Manufacturers are
anticipating a very hoavy year, as
buyers of paper cf ail kinds are pur
suing the policy of carrying heavier
stocks than last year. Prices range
about 8 per cent, below those of twelve
t months ago and 15 per cent, below
those ol two ydirs ago.
The boot and shoe makers cf Phila
delphia have more orders on hand
at this time than a year ago. South
ern trade is poor. Western trade is
good. Morocco leather is bought up
promptly and manufacturers are carry
ing libeial supplies of leather. The
Cincinnati tanners have advanced
leather 2c per pound. St. Louis tin
ners have advuueed leather a second
time. Several strikes are in progress
in New England, but gradual progress
is being made to establish permanently
harmonious relations through arbitra
The demand for all kinds of lumber,
especially the bard woods, will, from
preset t indications, be very heavy
throughout the coming year, but
wholesalers along the Atlantic coast j
are deterring the placing of orders
until every element of uncertainty as
to demand will be removed. Prices
are firm but will likely weaken, ui the
loggers are intending to throw a maxi
mum supply on the market.
The arcbitocts cf New York and
Philadelphia report this week a larger
amount of business in hand than last
year. A stimulus will be imparted to
tbe erection of manufactories, particu
larly in the Middle States, by the in
creasing tendency of manufacturers to
locate nearer ti supplies of fuel. Sev
eral textile mills will be staited in
eastern Pennsylvania, furniture facto
ries in the lumber regions of Penn
sylvania, sash and door mills nearer
to the forest, and a variety of general
manufacturing interests nearer to the
natural gas fields.
to tbe children, who bad run oat of
doors, and while he was searching for
fiem the woman managed to make
her way to a neighbors and gave the
alarm. A number of men then sur
rounded and captured K filer, but it
required quite a atrnggle before he
could be disarmed. Ilia wife's in
juries, while of. serious nature, are
not considered dangerous. St filar

an attsmpt to cremate one of his chil
dren in his pottery oven, at which
time there was some talk of lynching
him. Us is a man of very low intelli
gence, and is evidently cf unsound

Chicago, III., Feb. 2. "We will
give up the university propeity," said
the Kev. Dr. P. S. Ilenson last night,
speaking for the trustees of the Chi
cago University. "A full meeting of
the Mutual Life Insurance Company
directory refused our overtures for a
settlement We have now two gocd
business reasons for vacating the prop
erty. First, it would tike $291,600 in
cash t j retain it, and the property is
only appraised at 1250,000. Second,
we have not the money. These are
our reaons. Prof. Howe and others,
who have been with the university
from the first, cannot think cf parting
with the place, but I can. I have not
been here so long. We would be bet
ter off now if we had decided a year
ago' to let it go. It would require
$3-8,500 to free it of incumbrance. It
is not worth it. Prof. Howe hopes
that ways may yet be devised whereby
the property may be retained. He
has no fear that the Methodists will
get the property."

tragedy last evening. A Polish pot

enthusiast, lay down to sleep in tbe
altarnoon. After sleeping for about
an hour he suddenly sprang out of
bed, and, telling his wife that he had
been commanded by God in a vision
to kill her and the children, he seized
a hatchet and made a rush for her.
The fright ened woman endeavored to
escape, but before she got out of the
bouse the husband had dealt her
three blows on the head with his
murderous weapon. Thinking he bad

FmsBUBa, Pa., February 2. The
f;reat strike in tha coke regions is like
y to cause a coke famine. It haa been
estimated that the supply on hand to
day, Dot a by operator and consumer,
will not last at the least over ten days,
and at the expiration tf that tune, un

banked, rolling-mil's stopped, and

In the region there ore between
C000 and 6000 of the claw of people
wno are termed slaves by a. V. f rick.
This embraces both men, women and
children, although two-thirds of them
are men, and a very large proportion
of them single. It is not thought that
they realize what tbey ar going to do
wnen put out ol their booses, as verv
few of them have begun to take any
plans for the future. Probably five
per cent, of them will go back to their
native country. About thirty bought
tickets to Hungary yesterday. To an
interpreter one of the leaders said that
tbey were disgusted with this countrv.
and would never come back again. A
lew are talking o! going to tbe South
and West, where there are coal work,
ana ine remainder win go to the al
ready overcrowded Hocking Vallev.
The action of the strikers in refusing
to dig coal for the engines is aetiDg as
a boomerang, the operators having re
taliated by reiustng t j allow the etrtk
era to tuke any coal from tbe bins, and
in a few days there will not be 100 fam
ilies in the whole region who will have
coat enough to keep one fire burning,
Coke cannot be burned and there is no
wood to speak of in this region; so
with millions of tons of coal In the pits
waiting to be dug, the operatives will
have to Irene and go without food, or
give in and Dreak tne strike.

Wanted to Die Together.
St. Louis, Mo., February 2. About
1 o'clock this morning the St. Clair
siBters Rose, aged twenty-four, and
Nelly, aged twenty-three both in
mates of a house of ill repute, No. 524
Spruce street, attempted suicide by
taking the contents of a four-ounce
bottle ot laudanum. Prior to taking
the drug they sat down in their room
and each wrote two letters to the other
inmates of the bouse, giving instruc
tions what to do with their remains
after death. A timely discovery by
onetf their companions of the house
caused a physician to appear. He ap
plied the UBual remedies, and up to a
late hour this morning the girlB were
still in a critical condition, the two
patients are from Hickman, Ky.
Chicago, III.. February 2. The
Timtt this morning publishes a long
story which revives the tragedy
January 22d, when Charles Clowes
killed his mistress and himself in
bagnio in this city. At that time
young woman claiming to be his
widow came forward. She said her
maiden name was Liiraa Kelsey, aid
that the early rartot ber lite bad been
spent in a small town in Cayuga coun
ty, New York, where she had lived
with ber grandmother, and ha 1 taught
a school. She claimed to have met and
marriwi Clowes in New York City,
The Timet savs since the tragedy ru
mors have been current that this
young woman wai never married to
Clowes; that she confessed this fact
to his mother, and agreed to compro
mise ber claim on the estate ol the
deceased; and, farther, that for some
time previous to her meeting with
Clowes she had been a member of the
ballet in a New York theater.
With the view of ascertaining the
tilth or falsity of these rumors a re
porter railed on Air. ihomai lalton
an ancle of tbe young man, who said
that Clpwes had never intima'ed to
him that he was married; tbat on tne
coctrary he bad denied a report to that
etlect which hat reached bis mother,
Mr. Fulton then said: "I heard noth
log more ot the wife ttarv until I was
summoned, a few hoars after the trag
edy. to the side ot the dead man
where I was surprised to see a girl
who cuimed to be Clowes s wild,
could do nothing nnder the circum
stances but receive ber into my family
and treat her with all due respect, for
we bad Mo proof that she was not all
she claimed. Wednesday following
the day of the funeral she acknowl
edged to Mrs. Loonis, Clowes's moth
er, and myself tbii. she was not what
she pretended, Clowes's wife. She
stated that she had lived with him ai
his wife in various places, but that she
Dad never been married, mere was
no truth whatever in the story tbat
she exhibited a marriage certifl
rate shortly after the killing,
I have never heard tbat Clowes intro
duced the girl as his wife, or on any
occasion acknowledged that- he pes
sensed a wife, in relation tD the re-
Eort that we or any of his relatives
ave offered her $1000 or any other
sum to relinquish all claims, I will
say that such is net the case. Why
should we. when she has declared.
substantially, that she ha) so claim?
We have not seen or hoard from her
since she made the statement that she
was net Clowes's wife. Our relations
with her are perfectly friendly."
A call was also made at the residence
of Miss Kelsey's aunt, where the
young lady is at present stopping, but
she could not be seen. Her aunt.
however, slated that she believed the
couple to have been .married. She
admitted that Lillian bad been on tbe
stage both in New York and Chicago
for a short time in "small parti, but
ceased to appear on account cf the ob
jections made by Clowes.
Louibvillr, Ky., February 2. A
sensational and perhaps fatal encoun

day between Judge 11. A. Kurton,
deputy collector ol internal revenue
for tbe Fifth District of Kentucky, and
Mr. Samuel Averitt, a leading lawyer
cf Lebanon. oth gentlemen are di
rectors in the bank and have cot been
on good terms for years. At a meet
ing of the bank directors yesterday,
Judge Burton and Mr. Averitt ques
tioned each other sharply about a
bank matter, and Mr. Averitt finally
called the Judge a liar. That gentle
man quickly seized a notary s seal
and hurled it with great force against
the lawyer's head. The latter, who
was temporarily stunned, recovered
himself in a moment and, rushing

. Keokuk. Ia.. February 2. A serious
accident, which will result in the
death of one, and, perhaps, three
men, occurred yesterday at Pittsburg,
la., where a new bridge is being built
across the Des Moines river. As the
workmen wereusniy engaged fixing
in a new span, a derrick rope broke,
letting the derrick fall against a span
in course of erection, and two-thirds
of this gave way, falling fifty-two feet
npon tbe ice-bound stream below.
Five men were working upon the span
atthe time of the accident, and were
carried away with the wreck. John
Jamison was fatally injured, and Ed I
