WEDNESDAY, t t KEPT. IS, 1880.
Tba PenuByWania Republican pi
pers are continually howling over the
condition of the Southern negroes.
They tell ns that the colored psople
are free in theory bat itill ilavei in
bet; that they are bolldoiedat the
polls, forced t) work at starvation
wage, and then receive their pay in
chips and whetstones, as they are com
pelled to buy all they consume at high
prices from the stores on the plant i
tiona. Bat the truth is the black la
borers of the South are immeasurably
freer! than the miners and coke and
and iron workers In Pennsylvania. It
has recently been shown by Mr,
Henry George in a series of articles in
. the Jfarth American Review that the
average earning of a Pennsylvania coal
miner is approximately $7 a week.
Oat of this he has to pay for his
tools, for the sharpening and
keeping of them in repair,
for the o.l need to light him' in
his Work, and for the gunpowder used
In blasting. These varioas items of
cxpenie reduce his net Income to
not much over $0 per week. "But even
this does not tell the whole story. Ia
most of the mines the men are com
pelled to live in shabby tenements be
long'nc to the company, and from
which, under their contracts, they can
fe evicted at any time on five days'
notice, piying-for tbelr lodging a rent
al which nets to the coal operator a
large profit on the investment. In
many esses the men mint buy their
household supplies from tbe com piny
v stores, where the prico averages from
35 to 40 per cent higher than in retail
stores, in tbe immediate vicin'ty.
While there is no absolute rule
which compels these purchases, a
miner who takes it upoa hiimolf ti
purchiss his supplies elsewhere, ii
certain to receive immediate notice
that his services are no longer re
quired. The practical effect of th'n is
to reduce wages to a point lower than
those of the English minor. It seems,
siys Mr. George, a satire to read in
the Pennsylvania pspsrs about the
downtrodden condition of European
laborers and the tyranny of Irish
" landlords, when one has before him
the condition of afTiirs which is the
result of our industrial system, when
applied to su jh a naturally wa'tby
region as the Keystone State.
While immense improvements have
been made in many thinps of ordi
nary life, street paving remains gen
erally in a very unnatlHtactory condi
tion. Though the material be good,
unless dus care be given when laying
it down, dlmppolntment will follow.
In some ol the streets of this city, goo J
olid block h of stone have been used,
but afler a moderate amount of use
tbe surface becomes uneven, and the
saving to vehicles and the smoothnorH
and comparative no'salesHjesssomuch
to bs dositei nre bat. TbisdUap
ment is bound to follow, however good
themateiiil and however sound tbe
workmanship, unless the pavement
after being laid d)wn is thoroughly
rammed nntil it can sink no further.
When the only ramming comes fr.im
the passing vehic'ei, some loaded
heavier, some lighter, the narrow
wheels ram irregularly, and bills and
hollows are the risalt. What Is need
ed is a rammer that ii heavier than
any loaded vth'c'e, that shall ram the
blocks to solid tint no load that paises
over them cm force them further
down and so nnke hollow places
where wntor settles and softens the
soil below, and si ctums further sink
ing. Tbe steam rammer accomplishes
what is wanted. It is of Immense
weight aiid patsei over the blocks
again and team until there is not tbe
slightest sinking under the treinen
doas pressure. A Chattanooga paper
awhile ago stated that Hamilton
caun'y had purchased ono of thete
rams. On pavement property put
down the result was most latiefactory
Montreal, in Canada, uies the steam
ram, and the result, especially where
the small block Belgium pavement Is
used, is most gratifying, The ram
makes the road bed solid. The pass
ing vehicles may wear away the ma
terial in time, but they are powerless
to shape it into hills and hollows. A
steam rammer, which runs by its own
team, would save Memphis i's cost
many times over by rendering well
constructed pavement psrmanent, and
to save the outlay for taking np and
repaying every few years, especially
when the foundation material is
properly rammed down beore the
blocks are laid upon it.
The shooting season has opened,
and now is the time to enter a plea on
behall of the small birds. Tbat plea
Is especially appropriate here, as orni
thologists have declared that th
slaughter of small birds is -greater in
theeod'.h than in tbe North. It is
not to tbe credit of human beings tbat
the music of tbe mockiog bird, nod
tbe songs of the other winged melo
dists, are not a sufllcient plea for for
bearance toward them. Who can de
libsrately aid to make our woods
voiceless, to exchange the exuberant
g bird notes for a gloomy and mournful
7 silence? Even those who are so toul
lees as to be deaf to the harmony of
God's own choir should spare tb
birds for the services they render to
r0 their ungrateful slaughterers. Suih
should know, or knowing remember,
that we must either have birds to
keep down ineoct life or our crops, our
vegetables and our or th aids will bo
infected with enemies. Djttroy tbe
birds, and worms, g:ubs and
flies in couct'ess multitudes will
avenge their loss by destroying
human food. Some birds are accused
of devouring pain and fruits, but all
the harm done in that way is a thou
sandfold compensated for. Hawk
are accused of killing chickens; they
pay for their rare fi aits, and the owls
with them, by devouring field mice
and other pests. In the orchard and
garden the birds make a grateful re
turn for any little depredation they
may be guilty of by destroying snails,
worms and grubs without stint. At
one time in Egypt the vultures were
ex lrpated for eating peas. When
they were gone the loss incurred by
swarms of blsck beetles they had in
dustriously kept down- made their loss
bitterly lamented. Spare the birds;
they not only rejoice tbe heart wun
music, but they bountifully repay

London, September 14. The ob
struction tactics of tbe Parnellites
have led the government to insist that
tbe debate on tbe supply bill be con
cluded before a day be graded for tbe
discu eion of Mr. rarnell's bill. It is
almost certain that the Home of Com

maining Saturday's of tbe sersion.
Even so, in view of th present
tompfr of the rarnellites, it
is improbible that tbe House
will prcrogae beforo the end
of the month. Assuming tbat Mr.
Parnell's bill in already defeated, it is
almost certain that every stage of the
appropriation bill will be made the oc
cuion of a prolonged discission of
Irish ma ters. In the llousa of Com

debated, Mr. James Tutte, member for
Northwest Meath, Nationalist, (initi
ated a dHcuesion of the 1! .rbavilla

into the ess?, saying that the perxons
now imrirlsoaed for complicity In
the affair were undoubtedly
innocent. The debate lusted eiiflit

Mr. B'ggar pro csted egafnet the ac

had made the arguments of tbe Par

bitrary policy of tbe Brirklayers' and
Stoaema'ons Unions. Hitter feeling
between tbe two latter unions on one
side and the Stone Cutters' Union on

made by the stonemasons, backed

they should bs allowed to do

as "shoddy" at their rate of wages,
which 1h somewhat lower than tuut

opponents. Since then the brlcklay

'Washington. Seetember 14. Thos.
E. Benedict, of New York, this morr.
in took the prescribed oath and im
mediately entered upon the duties of
the office of Public Pi inter.
As soon as Mr. Benedict look pos

men of the various departments were
in'roduced to their new cmei. wr
Benedict, after greeting each one IndX-
viduallv. addressed then collectively.
He announced to them tbat each was
to continue in his present position for
the time being, or until he should fur
ther communicate with thorn; that at
as early a moment is wes practicable
he would address to each some inqui
ries respecting the work of I n divis
ion, the property In his bands, etc.,
and w. u'd give directions in detail ih
to tbe work. Until such time ths sys
tem in existence undor Mr. Hounds
ould continue in force. Mr. Bene
dict impressed upon his a-sistanti that
ho warned to avoid any interruption
or delay in tbo work of the office. Ha
wanted the w rk to go lorward jmoot li
ly and expeditiously. Special vigilance
in guarding end protecting public prop
erty and interests was enjoined upon
the men, ana they were urged to De
Industrie m and a teutive. 1'hey were
especially leques'ed to be watchful
against tire, as a conildgration now
would 19 peculiarly disastrous. All
tbo forerceii were directed to report to
the Public Printer any work tbat
might reach their desks outside the
regular order, and were notilied not
to undertake any work of any kind
unless it bad tbe approval of .Mr.
Benedict. They were also directed
not to make any contracts fur tbe pur
chase of new material or to sell any
old material, exept upon the author
ity of the Pub io Printer. Those bay
ing charge of public property we;e
ordered to make an inventory oi an
audi and submit it to the Public
inter. Some reduction In tbe force
of employes in tbe office will proba
bly nave to be made s od. Mr. Hounds
Intormed Air. ueneaici mat tne pres
ent force was too large, and that the
condition of the appropriation wou'd
cot warrant its continuance. The
law provides tbat 50 per cent, of the
money appropriated for the office
shall be unexpended and available on
the 1st of January. Mr. Bounds de
layed making tbe reduction tbat this
provision necjrsilatos because he de
sired to leave bis successor unembar
rassed in the matter. Congress apprc
priated $350,000 less for the cilice than

Geneva, III , September 14. A lit

Uerringtoa d island, in tha city, was
the home of Mrs. Buckmire, an aged
German woman. She whs known to
be in comloi table circumstances and
to have 8ved considerable money,
wbich she kept about the hou-e.
J'.iriy last night the hr.usi was
discovered to bs on firs, and
all attempts to exingu'sh it
wi re fruitless. The house wis nearly
consumed. It wns thought Mr. Buck'
mire had none to visit some friends, as
no trace of her cc u'd be found, and
people were about to give up search
when a man happened to go to tbe
chicken house. Mrs. Buckmlre was
found lying in the center of the lit le
houee with a cloth tied tightly around
her throat, indicating that she bad
been strangled to death. Tbe body was
lying in a cramped position, her limbs
drawn and the cloth bound bo tight
ly around her throat that her tongue
protruded. Tbe body was quite stiB
and the crime must have been com
mitted two or three hourj. The theory
is that Mrs. Buck mi re was murdered
a the house snd the body earned to
the outhouse. The perpetrator then
returned to tbe house and raosacked
it and secured all the booty he could,
then set fire to the house to dojtroy
the traces of h s crime.
