a portion, and
is now determined to
the rest. A telegram
sent from Loudon on Wednesday said
the Greek army on the frontier were
becoming provocative and the Turks
excited, so that any hour hostilities
might begin. The Greeks mainly rely
upon their navy, however, as the
Turkish troops largely outnumber
theirs, but as the ships of "the pow

their navy, it is in a very peculiar po
sition. It is believed that probably
Greece ha encouragement from Rus
sia, not that Russia is any special
friend of Greece, hut is discontented
about the Bulgarian settlement, and
may intend in some way to make the
Greek quarrel a mean of allowing her
to interfere in the affair of the Udk

war breaking out in the neighborhood
of those provinces is evident by the
extraordinary atop they have taken of
sending their war-ships to keep the

ous and almost frantic opposition
when Parliament meets again at ths)
beginning o! May is evident.
That both measures will have to
nndergo important modifications
appears certain, for while the English

only as a lave iiiH'allment of what

The sixth annual meeting of the
Woman' Silk Culture Atsocialion of
the UniUd Stateswas held at Philadel
phia a week ago. The report read by
the president atated that there was an
increase during the year just ended in
the number of persons engaged in
ilk culture, that there was an im
provement in the quantity and quality
of the ailk product and that a better
system of turning the agricultural
product into commercial raw ailk pre
vailed. Mew officers were elected, all
of them women. The statistics of the
country show that, as the States grow
older, there is an increase of the
female population over that cf the
male!. The statistics also show that
there is a large increase of un
married women. These facts Indicate
that as the country grows older there
will be an increase in the number of
women forced to support themselves.
The culture of silk is peculiarly wo
man's wo k, and this branch of indus
try should be encouraged for
thoir benefit. In many portions
of the Hdiith considerable inter
est has beun taken in silk
culture, and sn aunuol'y incieadng
number of men, women and chi'dren
have engaged in planting mulberry
trees and in raising silkworms. As
yet but little has been accomplished
in the South in the direction of the
manufacture, the principal reason be
ing that the supply of cocoons Is yet
too (in ill and precarious to justify it
There is reason, however, to believe
that silk culture will soon becjme
leading industiy for women in the
Southern Htates. The Interest in silk
culture has grown steadily and with
increasing promise. In 1850 there
were slxly-sevua silk manufacturing
establishments in ths whole country,
producing goods valued at $l,fl0!),478.
By 1HW the number of factories had
increased to 130, and the value of pro
ducts to $6,607,771. From 18E to
1S70, the decade of the war, the num
ber of factories decreased, but the
value of tho output increased again to
tl'-',210,e02 in 1870. In the census,
year of 1880 there were 382 establish
ments in the United States, whicu
produced finished goods worth $34,
610,723, or 38 per cent, of a'l the silk
goods consumed by the nation.
As by far the major pirt of the raw
material wd in this native manu
facture was imported, and as there
doej not appear any good reason why
cocoons and reeled silk should not he
as well and as cheaply supplied here
as abroad, it is not difficult to infer a
promising future for our home silk
farms. It is worth noting that in de
voting their attention to this subject a
majority ( f our silk experimenters in
the South fancy that they are pion
eering a new Southern industry. Ths
tac'. is that the production of silk was
among the very earliest industrial ef
forts of the colony of Virginia. I i
1609 King James of England con
signed eilk worm rgge t Jamestown,
which failed to arrive, owing to ship
wreck. Later his mujesty succeeded
In supplying the colonies, and tbe
production was stimulated at va
rious times afterward by fines for
not planting mulberry trees, or by
bounties for introducing coco ans
and raw eilk. A Swiss colony, which
sctt'eil in South Carolina in 1733,
made some progress in raising silk,
and there Is rooord of the exportation
oi 251 pounds of raw silk from North
and Sjuth Carolina bet wean 1731 and
17G5. Hut it cannot be said tba'. tho
industry flourished. The couditions
wore favorahlo to au extensive pro
duction, 1 ut tho pjllcy i f the mother
country f jrbade colonial manufacture,
in the interest of British weavers, aud
subsidies nd finos were alike iasulll-
ciout to keep it ou its legn. Eirly in
the eighteenth century silk culture on
the Mississippi wis a part of John
Law's Mississippi Company scheme,
a..d, in 1817, eggs aud seeds formal
berry trees were sent to New
Orleans In aud about the city
a good many trees were grown
and tradition has it tuat the pros
pects for the industry were bril
liant until the collapse of the "Hoath
Sea bubble" produced a col"
laps of all the infant interasti of the
early tow a. Silk culture was intro
duoed in Georgia in 1732, and made
some progress. Queen Caroline Is al
legod to have worn a gown of Georgia
silk on a certain state occasion, and 1
Bavarian colony, near Hivannah, ap
pear t) have produced quite a good
dea' of raw silk, as in 1771-72 it ex
ported 873 pounds of raw silk to Eog
laud. In 17o0 Georgia produced 6300
pounds of cocoons, and 20,COO pounds
in 1766 From 1750 to 1754, the same
col my export h! raw eilk valued at
18SC0. Il is not necessary at this titin

were many women in carr.as's who
waved their handkerchiefs when the
ergines bacxed lnfo toe stall again.
The committer ol the strikers keut at
work at the switchmen who had been
imported by tbe cumpany. They
argued with tbm, they b'tgged them
to show themselves men and get out
of tbeenr. They told them: "Thecsstle
yon are in pow; will tumble down

"Have you gt a f-mily? So have
we. Here s S 1 r vnu to come out.

were put, np be'o-e 1I10 window. "If
you don't conic wi'h us you can go to
tue uttermost pa t of the earth and
the odium will f illow you."
Up ti 4 o'clock the railroad officials
were endeavoring unsuccessfully to
get man to run an engine on tbe main
track, and the strikers were laboring
with tbe switchmen to try and make
them give up. At 5 0 clock bitten ot
the new men bad pined the sinters,
and the sunpoutton then was that
they would to a man join the strikers.
Six of the strikers were a -rested on
the warrants sworn out by the company.
At 6 p.m. the Sherifl ordered the
deputies to return to the city until 0

road company having decided to make
no further attempt to run trains until

A deputy-sheriff arrived in the city
tlrs evening having in charge five
strikers who had ben placed under
arrest by the Sheriff's posse. They
were arrested on State warrants sworn
out before a justice of the peace,
charging "conspiracy to maliciously
and feloniously prevent the free and
safe passage of trains of freight cars."
The prisoners were taken to the Har
rison street police station and locked
up. Business at the custom-house
was very dull to-day on account of
the strike. Some of the employes
were of the opinion that there were
nearly fifty loaded cars due in Chicago
nowout on tbe Lake Shore somewhere
between Chicago and Elkhart. The
cars are very valuable, and contain
goods for about all the importers in
at the custom-house. Many of the
iiianeetors wen1 kept verv bllSV lit the
stock-vards looking for shipments of
meat for export from the packing and
canning houses. The inspectors say
that somo of the exporters seem to
feel that there is going to be a general
strike on the railroads centering here,
and a rtsulting shut down of manu
facturing establishments. The export
ers are hurrying off what stock they
have 111 order to meet foreign con
tracts and not be caught if the strike
affects any other Eastern roads. A
still larger' force of inspectors and as
sistants will be sent to the stock
ys'.rds to-morrow in answer to the de
