The message of Ptesident Cleve
land on the subject cf the labor
' troubles is an eminently conservative
document, placing the delicate and
important question it ttetts in its
proper light. We speak in n lrit
of jiartirtn adulation when we say oar
exited opinion of tbe ability and
high confidence in tbe patriotism of
of Mr. Cleveland, previous to bia
election, have been confirmed by each
additional state paper that bai been
issued by him since bis inauguration.
His inaognraJ address, his first met
age to Congresi, hia special comma
cation to tbe Senate, and that which
he sent to Congress on Thursday,
11 attest unflinching firm
ness, tbe most impartial
patriotism and tbe highest degree
of M itaemawblp. Beset by tbe con
flicting ronnsals and irreconcilable
prejudice of factions, or temporary
meuares of expediency confronted
by opposition in his own paity for no
offense save that of honestly striving
to redeem his pledges coming into
office at a critical juncture, be has fo
far eaconutered obstacles at almost
very step and met tUngnrs at every
ido. He ban, bowevar, proved him
elf not only equal to each
emt-rgency as it bos arisnn, bnt
superior to tbe misfortunes that
frowned upon him, as well as Die
machinations of those who would em
ban ass and break down h's adminis
tration. Mr. Cleveland has performed
genuine public service in send
ing his able and well-timed
message to Congrcs:. The whole
tone of bia paper is in sympaty wlthh
the laboring uaases. Indeed bis nies
Mge is an eloquent plea far them. At
the same time be sets his face firmly
gainst tbe lawless mob which seeks
to accomplish its purpose by tbe de
struction ol other people's property.
Tbe American people are nniting in
the opinion that every man bai a
right voluntarily to join an association
In which he submits bis own judg
mni to the judgment of tbe majority
of his associates, and that the man who
i has not joined such an association baa
not forfeited his right to work for
wagHS satisfactory to him, and if those
who have joined such an associa
tion interfere with the exercise of his
right, they are a 3 much oppressors as
the capitalists who.for their ownselfbh
ends, oppress laboring men. For two
years the Appial has persistently
orted arbitration as the only
. remedy to adjust all differences
bet men capital and labor,
and it hails tbe President's message as
move in the right direction. Jay
Gould, in bia testimony before tbe La
bor Investigating Committee onThuis
day, announced himself in favor of
arbitration, aid is tbe labor classes
re anxious for the same plan of ad
justment, there is nothing to prevent
immediate action on the part of Con
frees. The socialist?, the anarchista,
the agrarians and all the lasy vaga
bonds and criminals who Late prop
arty owners, whether millionaires flv-
, ins in palaeea or the workingtiteo
occupying little homes which' theyl
have secured through honest industry
nd frugality; will oppose arbitration.
A few greedy, cruel capitalists who
take a delight lu grinding and starving
labor will denounce the policy of ar
bitration. But if such an umpire
should ho crea'el by Congress, tbe
party refusing to submit to its
awards would not ouly low tbe sym
pathy of the American people, but be
execrated es factious disturbers of the
peace and tranquillity of the country,
The people generally, and President
Cleveland in bis eflieinl position, are
in favor ot arbitration a-- the btst
me'hod of settling la'jordihpfftes The
strikers, ns a role, are in lavor of the

we take iti a capitallsta' orgar, the
New York Indicator, aud we find it
blantlnc the New York llailroad Com
niifvioneiB fur recommending arbitra
tion in the numerous strikes in that
city. It says: "They attempt to forte
an arbitration as ttuiiigh thcie was au
obligation oa tbe part of the rttilroaJ
to employ men who refuse to work for
it," The nlardity of the iidi'mtVi
'as thoneb, etc.," is evident. Then,
warming up, that paper declares that
neh an attempt to force arbitration is
"n outran" To cap its absurdity
onr Well street rontempoiary asserts
that tbe Comuilpoioiicis ought to say to
the striker?, "iU'Sume woik lirai, then
we will order an arbitration." There
re often disputes in Wall street
b'.nt rruuey payments. Hies the
Stock Exchange say in such acae,
"Fay tbe money first, then we will
order on arbitration?' But the ndi-i-at-'T
cbjvCts tbnt a burglar who de
mands arbitration when the stolen
property is claimed, or lunatic
w Lo should cluim the City Hall as his
has no right to arbitration. The
working people complain that the cap

or iuna'ic?; nud here, we find, that is
just how thev ought t j ha treated. In

proved by "th prepoeteroas logic" of
the Indicator. The ruinator ' blunder

announcement of the American Iron

Tut Appkai, has very frequently
called the attention ot ita country
readers to the subject of growing
broom com. The ISauthern grown
article, as wo are assured by manu
facturers themselves, is highly es
teemed In the market; it is usually of
finer quality than the Northorn
grown, t large proportion of it being
fitted for superior and fancy work. A
while ago the Western growers became
diiMtitfkd with prices and the supply
was reduced; the consequences show
how much worth the Southern farm
era while it hOo givethesubjejtof
broom corn Mr consideration. In
consequence of the scarcity the
llmitad growing of brjom corn in the
West has caused, we are informed by
the Chicago Tribun that broom corn,
which s jld at 8i) a ton one year ago,
nDW sells anywhere at $100 to $249,
nd onr Chicago contemporary adds:
"Broom corn ia now worth anywhere
from f ICO to 1240, and is better than
gold even at these figure, for there is
no telling how much higher it may
go. Tbe seed, which is ordinarily
w;rth $2.50 a bushel, is now worth
$10, and cannot be had in snflijient
quiutities oven at that price. In
this city alone, a hundred broom
factories have abut down, owing
t.i the tcirc'.ty and high price of slock,
and throiiuhout the country thousand!!
of factories have either closed entirely
or nre running in a very limited way.
There is probably not seed eaoub in
the country to put out more than a
third of a croii this vn.tr. and the Dror-
poct la that the familiar 25-cent broom
will remain at 10 cenla for same time

adopted in Congreas. Opinions upon
it are varied. Mr. Powderly thinks
the recommendation good as far as it
goes. "It is not juat what I want,
though," he said. "I want a depart

doctoring these trouMea. I want to
go to the root of the disease. Strikes
are but medicine. They relieve the
patient for time, but his s'ekness

must be ao iously and carefully

labor to have records of file to make
careful and constant study of the la
bor quoetion and be ready to act and
to recommend action at any time.

Kiypokt, N. J., April 23. At the
borne of J. Munroe Siniih, seven miles
outb of tbis place, a most dreadful
tragedy occurred. Mr. Smith iefl'ty
five years old and bis wife forty-three
nd the mother of six children aged
nineteen, eighteen, thirteen, eleven,
even and four, respectively. Some
years ago the wife and mother was sent
to an insane asylum and. was
discharged year later presumably
cored. Lest fall she bad severe pains
in her head and her husband sent her
to her brother's house in Elisabeth,
where she improved greatly and re
turned home short time ago. Tbis
morning after breakfast she went to
one oi tbe outbui dings on the prem
ises, and after awallowirg dose ef
"Rougnon Ruts" returned to the house
with an ax concealed under her dres.
Eva, brr four-year-old daughter, was
still Bleeping when the mother en
tered tbe bed chamber. Lifting the
ax above tbe eleepin child the
maniac mother brought it swiftly
down, splitting the little one's
bead open, killing her iuttantly. She
then attached Rufu, aged thirteen,
dealing him several ravage blows
on the bead with the pole of the ax.
Bisiie, the eleven year old daughter,
beg.ed for mercy, but the terrible
blood-stained ax wai whirled in the
air and went crashing into the fragile
little Jhead. Tbs eighteen year old
daughter then locked tbe baby in an ad
jolng room and ran screaming outside
to apprise her father of the awful wo.k
within. After a terrible struggle tbe
woman was secured. One of tbe chil
dren is dead and the others are likely
to die before morning. Mrs. Smith is
herself in very precarious condition.
What Capt. Boar Tlilnka of the ton
dltlon of th Leveca.
The nnws of the break in the levee
below Helens, flooding about a mil
lion acres, was discussed to tome ex
tent yesterday, but caused no serious
prehension. The weather daring
tue past week has been exceedingly
favorable, and no danger is now ap
prehended by merchants and others
here who have largs river interests.
Capt. Seais aya that he thinks the
levee will atmd two feet more cf
water. The levee is the same that
gave way in 1884, and from tbe nature
of tbe soil is not considered safe. The
bank ia also cutting considerably
at that point. , The prediction
of Milts of Helena, published in the
Ai'pkal some time ago has got that
gentleman in hot watar all over the
country. The Arkansas City Journal
says the danger of the river people be
ing driwned out is rot one-tenth as

take their Miles and dump him in the
river which he has maligned so much.

Mr. Isaac C. Chapman, druggist,
Newburg, N. Y., wri es us: "I have
for the past ten years sold several
gross of Dr. William Hall's Balsa-a for
the Lungs. I can say of it what I
cannot say of any other medicine, I
have uever heard a customer speak of
it but to praise its virtues in the high
est manner. I have recommended it
in a great many cases of wboiping
cough, with the happiest effects. I
have used it in my own family for
many years; in fact, always haves

The best physicians of Memphis
sav that a great many persons are
alllicted with a morbid condition of

fact that the sluggish action of this

pain or soreness. The distinguishing
characteristic of a Torpid condition ol

Ballowiiess of the complexion, which
clearly shows that the biliary matter
