tunately, the majority of American

better idtas. It. is this better class who
arc striving nnceaging'y for recogni

should have some influence with the
indifferent ones, and stimulate them

Several attorneys-at-law were also

the matter ol sneb an application

united elates itturt in boston, was
next seen, and he said it waa not an
uncommon thing in Bcston to admit
women to citixensaip. The constitu

plication to women. Mouday morn

Second District Court, and was allowed
to tile her primary papers. The New
Bedford Merrury says that this is the
first caee of the kind ever before tbat

women is nothing new. Women have
taken out natural:iation papers for
generations. Some forty years ag),
under Democratic administrations,
El'r-abeth, Emily and Marian Black
well, natives of England, and sisters
of our senior editors, having occasion
to revisit Europe, applied successively
for certificates of naturalization and
citiaecship, and the papers were
granted them without hesitation.

Grand Rapids, Mich., Mat 28. At
7 o'clock list evening a thundering
crash was heard in the Valley City
Mill. On investigation it pioved to be
the giving sway of the over-laden
floors. The whole interior of tbe
structure fell into ths basement, and a
large portion of the content! wassxin
swept away by tbe mill-race out into
the Grand river. There were stored
in the mills between 15.000 and 20,000
bushels of wheat and about thirty
tons of bran, all weighing 500 tons.
Io ths western portion of the building
was the milling machinery, of tbe
moet improved and costly stylee, a
portion of it having been put in but a
year sgo at an expense of $18,000. All
this plunged down into tho bssemest
in the general destruction. The tim
bers snd machinery in falling broke
through ths west side of the bui ding,
making a gap in the wooden walls
fifteen feet wide snd twenty to thirty
feet high. A smaller gap was also
made in tbe wall on the east side.
The damage is estimated at from $80,-
009 to $100,000. Tbe mil's sre insured
to the amount of $50,1 00, but tbe in
surance is woithlesr, ts it ooly covers
damage by Ore. A new mill will be
erected at once. The dieaster occurred
by ths timbers yielding in the first
story and forcing tbe uprights. The
whole came down.

ployers. Upon full consideration of
all the points involved in this de
mand, the Livermore Company and
tbe stove company conceded it. It
was an easy matter for the Utter
named concern to make the ronces-
aion, as it pays its workmen by tbe
piece; but io the Livermore concern
it waa otherwise, as they pay by the

Himi'Eis, Tik.v., Mar 22, lH8ti.
To th Offieari and Member of the Iron
At oulderi Union No. 6ti, Mamphia, lenn. :
Gkmtlehkn Your communication
of the 17th ins ant lias teen duly re
ceived and cons dered. 1 h.rdly
think yrur demand is just, for the fol
lowing reasons: As yon well know,
we are under contract for wo- k on
houe fronts, railroad work. etc. .based
upon lime and wages allowed and
paid at the time these contiacU were
made. Competition from other places
outside of Memphis has been and is
very strong. It lias been our aim to
bring the work to Memphis at an ex
tremely small margin of p'oflt, hoping
thereby to increase the amount of our
work, employ more men, and, by this
increase in uantity, help to counter
balance the low prices at which the
work is taken St. Louis, Cincinnati,
l-ouisville, etc.i are strong competitors
for house work and, in fuct,every kind
of work. You must also be aware that
every railroad can, without trouble,
:et tneir castings irom the t-jist.boutb,
iVest or Northwest, and that the item
of freight is a very small consideration
to them. In fact, freights, as a rule.
are against Memphis.
W e cla m and believe that we rave
done as much or more than almost
any establishment of any kind to in
duce and bring trade of every kind to
toiscity. vte are a strictly Memphis
institution, and every dollar which
can be brought here, and every man
added to our population, is a benefit,
directly or indirectly, to every citizen
of tho place, be he rich or
poor. Are tho hours and ' wages
you now demand in Memphis, paid
In our competing points? If so we
could have but little to sav. On the
contrary, however, lam informed and
thieve it to be a fact that wages in
Memphis ire and have been higher
than at almost any other place of its
Manufacturing is the very life of
any city. A strong effort has been
made recently in I ins city to attract
this class of t adc. If, however, with
ether disadvantages, wages aro made
higher here than elsewhere, tbe
chances of increasing, or even holding
what we have, aie small indeed. The
expense of advertising, traveling, etc r
etc., tt secure orders, as we have, from
Texas, Arkansas.Soothern Mississippi,
and other t o nts, could not be sus
tained when competing with points
that pay from fifteen to twenty five
per cent, less wages, l bart hoped and
believed that our Memphis mechanics
would realize this fact, snd hold a'oof
from demands incident to the excite
ment of the hour, and thereby bring
more business to oitr city and give
employment to more men Any other
ourse, is, in my honest opinion, detri
mental to employer ana employe. We
have here no soulless monopolies, butt
the int rests of the employer and of
the employe are ono and the sacse.
Tho employer cannot afford to keep
open at a loss, and the emp'oye who
nag no wora. is in oistress. .
I have noticed in a number of cases
where nine hours hav been demanded
that the demand was a companied by
an allowance of enlv nine
hours pay; This ccrtamiv would
loot more reasonable. I am
not opposed to trades unions
or organizations for mutual protec
tion, advancement, etc , but believe
that where they make demands all
sides should be duly canvassed and
considered, and the harmonious plan
is the appointment of a committee to
discuss with the employer the feasH
bility and practicability of any radi
cal changes.
We shall concede your demand, but
I ask that you consider the matter
carefully and thoughtfully in the
joint interests of Memphis, the suc
cess of Memphis manufacturing inter
ests and the continued employment
of yourselves and others. -
It will not require a g-eat amount
of time for you to thoroughly canvas
the matter tbiough a committee and
come to a final conclusion, but it
Bhould Ixi thoughtfully and carefully
In the meantime we understand
that you Btart Monday on nine hours
with ten hours' pay, only asking you
to consider caretuliy an tbe points In
volved. 1 am no politicisn, am ruuning W
no office and make no claims to bs
tho "workingman's friend," but to
those who have worked for this- es
tablishment during the past five
years, or tnose wno nve been under

Letter to the Peoples
In these days, when a defi
nite education is considered
a necessary qualification for
any particular work, or to
ensure success in any enter
prise, does it not seem singular
that the special plea should be
set forth for remedies dealing
with life and health that they
were originated and prepared
by ignorant people or savage
tribes, who know nothing of
medicine, its action on the
system or method of prepara
tion? When intelligent
people need advice they seek
the best. Why not when
they need family remedies?
Brown's Iron Bitters is com
posed of the best vegetable
alteratives in nature, into
which Iron is blended in its
most active form, by reliable
chemical knowledge and
skill. It is a perfect blood
purifying and strengthening
remedy. As it is made with
out the use of whisky it
enriches and strengthens
weak, watery, vitiated blood,
and prevents or cures diseases
of the Stomach, Liver or
Kidneys, and leaves no bad
effects from its use. It re
moves the poison of malaria
and so cures Chills and Fever
and Spring Fever. The in
telligent reader will readily
see how much care has been
exercised in ue preparation
of Brown's Iron Bitters, and
when in need of aid from such
a remedial agent will at once
select this one. Wc call
the attention of those who
have given this subject little
thought, to the great benefits
to be derived from this pure,
strengthening and purifying
medicine. It is a matter of
great interest to ladies that
this is the only Iron prepara
tion that will not injure or
discolor the teeth, or cause
headache and constipation.
It is hardlv necessary to eive
a list of diseases arising from
impure blood. Dyspepsia
and Indigestion, Rheumatism
and Neuralgia are as directly
traceable to this cause as are
eruptions of the skin or torpid
liver accompanied by bilious
ness. All these diseases

are cured by urown s iron
Bitters, which is for sale
everywhere. Many imita
tions are on the market. Do
