TUESDAY, I t t KAY 11, 1886.
In ipile o! the stiikes, tho Anarchist
riots at Chicago and Milwaukee and
the agitation of tha eight-hour ques
tion, trade for the put week Ins shown
a most gratifying Increase at nearly all
the important centeis. The total
of clearance! is reported to be $S9,
833.470, compared with $771,571,047
the week before, which was the
amaUest total for any full weok aince
September 2(i, 1886. This ia a most
gratifying exhibit, f it, as the New York
CltronicU obssrvcs: "Clearings and
railroad earnings ara always the last
to record a rise or a fall in legitimate
enterprise. Of oourse the clearings
quickly reflect stock speculation, but
after a period of depression real enter
prise basin great measure lobe carried
to full fraition before I rn sanctions ctn
be largely multiplied, or their results
appear in our distributing machinery.
For similar reasons the record they
five o! a decline in activity la alike
alow-they feel it last" In New York
tha Trodoci Exchange responded to
the Boclallbt outbreak In the West,
and for a day or two It seemed
to be peralud, bnt the prompt
and successful efforts of tha au
thorities of the threatened cities
in restoring order, fojether with
the freedom of ths workingmen from
any participation, near or remote, in
tha riots had tha effect of reassuring
tba members, and they ara figuring as
usual. Tha Chronicle report! a alight
improvement in money daring the
week, commercial paper being very
scarce. No change in rates, backs
Inclining to ba conservative, and buy
ing only first-olata notes. Aa to the
future of our foreign eieharjges
tha same reliable authority slates that
"tha market ia felt to ba a little more
doubtful than it wis. Lower rates
were anticipated with much confi
dence as soon ai tha French lean wai
awarded, bulanow everything must of
course depend upon the flow of go'd
in Europe. If, after the announce
ment of the aanrdi tor the French
loan, tha gold recently collected by
the Bank of France shall be to aome
extent distributed, the strain would
ba relieved. But if the efforts at Paris
to draw gold continue, as many think
they will, because of the deollneia
allver (the quotation yesterday being
45Jd.), the Bank of England will be
forced to fnither raise its rate until it
stops the drain or draws from us a
sufficient tupply."
There can be no doubt that the
strikes, the agitation of the eight-hair
quett'on and the Anarchist riots have
had the (tract of arrettlng the healthy
; condition of trade developed es a re
sult of the dullnens that prevailed so
i uniformly in 1834-85. But as the
strikes have prac'lta'ly ended and the
: Anarchists are in tho hand
' of tha law and there only remains
ithe eight hour question there is
j rearon to hope with the New York
j Indicator that business will soon l3
i upon a firmer bau'e. Fur as tbe New
i York Chronicle tays, "There is no
doubt a very hopeful fesling prevail
ing in business circles. Confidence in
the good sense of the large majority
of our people, still warrant i the belltf
that these labor troubles mu&tsoon
ceaie. The earlier contest! are all
practically closed and aiide from the
dynamiters, which the law will deal
, with and cruah, there ii only the
eight hour Movement to be me;. With
the exception of this ' one cause,
everything, as we have frequently re
f marked, points toward activity, llow
far more favorable and reassuring tl hi
last year the crop situation is to day.
it Is hardly neceef ary to repeat. Wo
can only say that the week fcas but
confirmed what we have heretofore
published. Before June is out our
railroads will have new wheat to tar
ry. Then there is a spirit of enter
prise still pervading all cltsses, which
is held in check for the time being by
tha uncertainties ( tbe moment.
Ooly give tha country a lata basis fcr
its activities snd there is no doubt of
the result"
EradstrerCt statistics show that the
total number of workmen engaged in
the eight-hour movement in all pa-ts
of the country is 325.C00. Of these
150,000 have succeeded in obtaining
What they demanded without striking,

ftill on strike. The trades in which
the movement has been most success
j'ul are those connected with house
building, agricultural implement
waking and machinery building,
j h'se are trades not subject
to foreign competition. In thoee
which are subject to such competition
either in the wy of exportation of
the domes' ic product or of imjiorta
tion of the foreign, the movement has
met with little success. In some cases
the employers have yielded in con
secjeni e of contracts on hand which
must he filled, but have notified tho
men that they shall return to ten
hours when the co: tracts are com
pleted, or (lost- the wcrks. The (vlwlo

made bis ueaa costly muff in left
fluid, letting. In a run, and by clumiy
baie rurjLiug and failure to find the
ball managed to earn tbe der.s
ion of Ihs crowd. Black did seme
marvelous base stealing and well de
served tae ap plans) tbat greeted his
run in the ttird inning. Tbe
game was Interesting tbrcuunut and
up to the last half of the eighth inning,
with tbe score 3 to 2 in favor of Memphis
lojked like a viuo.y for the Browns.
Ia tbat inning, however, Stearns got
to first on Andrew's fumble ol a
g-ounderand stole to second. Con
nolly got bis ba-ie on balls. Corcoran
hits to sbort-ttp and was put out at
fiist,8:eara going to third and Connel
ly to atcond. Pelts hit to first and
was retired, Stearns scoring. Decker
struck out, ending the inning with the
score tied, 3 to 3. Neither side scored
in tbe ninth inning. In the tenth in
ning Sneed got s goose egg by an easy
hit to second. Mansel made first on
Walsh's fumble if a grounder, snd
made second on Walsh's muff as
thrown by Decker. Andrews hit to
pitcber, who fumbled, diverting the
bail past the second baseman, An
drews reaching first in late
ly. Mantel made for home,
but the ball beat him about
tea feet and Decker put him out as
clearly as ever a man whs put out on a
ball ground, umpire Brennan, how
ever, declared him not out, and the
Macon nine, justly withdrew from ths
diamond, retusing to continue tbe
game. Alter a mrg wrangle tbey
finally resumed play. Black struck
out aud Bronghtou went out on a hit
to third. With a score of 4 to
3 against them staring tbem
in the face the Macous went
t) the bat, hardly hopirg to win.
Probably tbeir wrath lost them
etrength, for (ieisi, the firrt batter,
knocked the ball to light-field for two
bags. Stearns hit to second and was
intercepted at first. Connelly hit a
grounder to left-field for one bag and
Uuss scored. Corcoran then stepped
up to the plate, but before ha could
rap tbe ball Concelly had stolen to
second. Corcoran th.n sent tha ball
to center-field and Connelly came in
making tbe winning run for Macon,
Tbe attendance was unu'.ua'ly Iotm,
not a seat being varaut on tbe grand
stand, aud the place reserved frr
lad es was bonoreo by tbe pretence of
a, least a hundred representatives of
tbe fair sex. Tbe r suit of the game
wr-s a great disappointment but par
tiality to the Lome nine should cot
blind one to tha fct tbat tbe score
wou'd bave been 3 to 2 in favor of
Memphis but f r Andrews' crstly
error in tbe eighth inning. The game
was lost then and there, and only goes
to show that even as good a player si
Andrews has hist fl davs. The batterv
for Macon to-day will be Cbamberlane
and Daniels, the former being tbe
pitcher wrom the Chattanooga nine
knocked illy the first wback tbey got
at him. Black and Bronghton will
bold tbe folate for Memphis.

Tbe Committee on Itineracy, to
which was rsfened a memorial from

that provision he made for the ap
pointment of evangelists, recom
mended non-ccncu'rance.
Dr. Adams ol Georgia thought tbat
Sam Jones and other such men should
bave noratnalppointa;cBs.
Dr. Messick of Louisville stronpl
supported the report of the commit
tee, and was in favor of allowing the
question of etacgrdism to stand as It
is. He very forcibly contended that
the church did not want specialist' on
this subject; that every Mttholii-t
P'etcher is equally qudilW to save
tojls. In tbe name of Methodism he
protested against such an innovation,
nd when he concluded tbe:e vtas a
hearty "amen."
Dr. Neely cf Texas stid that these
evangelists, as far as he knew, were
running on the plan of "religion made
eay." Ia the name of the Methodist
church and of tbe entire church of
God ha hoped that the meaiura would
Dr. Winfield of Arkimae slid that if
the memorial is adopted every turn
log in tha Methodist convention will
he an evangelist in tbe next five years.
"Do yon know wbat a gum-log isf
the doctor aked. "It is one you can
not do anything witb. When I was in
Europe with Bishop Wilson we were
shown a certain kind of tree there
called tbe feminine oak. You tao't
split it or do anything with it It is
just like a women : when she will, she
will, and you can't do anything with
her. There is but one Sam Jones in
tbe world," lie continued, "and there
never will be bnt one, and every little
fellow that tries to be like
Bam Jonea will fail. You can
make no mora on that lire. He
is by himseli yon can bave but ens,
and if you attempt to duplicate him
you will turely fail. Laughter. He
has turned Chicago upside down, and
any man that bai ths.courage to attack
Chicago cannot be duplicated. He is
being beard in Baltimore. Renewed
laughter. He is tbe man ot tbe cent
u y. We don't want any evargelitts
among Southern Methodists. We
have already the 1 randest machinery
in tbe world. Brethren, I tell you
what is the matter. You go a'ong
lifeless and deed. Rekindle flies in
vour own church, for it is time the
Methodist ministers were looking this
mstter in the face."

tbe committee was adopted by an al
most unsnimons vote.
