"Thore aro twentycven Iron panels, each ol w hich required a aejiaralo d!ni?ruiu, that in turn furnished the bonis olasorios of geometrical designs ralcu lalod by menus of tables ol logarithms. The metallic pieces number about 12,000, mid Iho position ol ench and tho places lor its rivets had to bo decided with out orror. In the iron plates wero drilled 7,000,000 holes, which, II placed end to end, would form a tube lorty-threo miles long. Thero wero 500 ciiKinoeiu' designs and 2,500 loaves ol working drawing It was necessary to employ forty designers and calculators for a ieriod of about two years. It is thus seen thnt the iron forms a vast complicated network, not easily realized when con templating tho gracefulness ol the com pleted tower," Tho first (rallory, 230 Inut from tho ground, is used for restaurants and cafes; tho second gallery is 100 leet Bbovotbis, slid the third gallery is reached ut a bight of ST.l feet Btirmo'.inling this, 121 feet higher, is a small observation room, with two windows on a sido, from which a view of l'nris and its environs to tho oxtent ol seventy-five miles limy bo bad.

On Saturday lust ho exhorted a pen sion attorney to do bis best to givo lilin a "shadow of law" on which to base an in crease ol a certain class of pensions from ?:)Q to $72 per month. Tho lawyer, whoso (co depended on Ids making an effort, showed to his ow n satisfaction nnd Tan nor's that the increase was according to law. It was accordingly made, though tho practice ol the pension bureau and tho opinion ol competent oflicials is dead against it- Congress, the latter mildlysug gested, should be allowed to change the law, if a chango was desirable, but tho commissioner scemod to be ol opinion that Coiignws is too slow. The pension attor neys aro to have a glorious time this year. Tui ClurbnUle C7ironic.V, encouraged by tho growth and prosperity ol Birming ham, Ala., advocates a boom in Iron lor that .prosperous though conservative town, and says that "Clurksvillo possesses three advantages over Birmingham. While Iron ran bo produeod hero just ns cheap the finality Is much superior to tho Birmingham iron, and the transportation Irout lioro to '.ho regular Iron markets is considerably cheaper. Birmingham is dependent entirely ou her iron industry. Stagnation in the Iron market nt any time would seriously affect that city, wbilo Clurksvillo would bo sustuyiod by her splendid commerce. This vast iron inter est Is certainly worth developing." Well, tho way to develop Is to develop. Clarks villa has only to unito tier surplus capital on tho development ol her iron interests, mid the thing Is dolto. Having the capital, pluck nnd energy nlono are needed.

Pennsylvania Iron Man Would Now Ltlca to llavo Protection Against Alabama. New York Herald Kd.lorUI. ' Tho Pennsylvania iron men aro in "a perfect atuto of mind," and il consists largely of astonishment, chagrin and dis gust. They have heretofore been able to con trol Iho market, fix prices, limit produc tion and exerclso other prerogatives of sov ereignty. Small fry have been alssorbod or crowded to Hit) wall. They have had thoir own sweet way, nnd by means of combination have worked the home mar ket for all it wss worth. In other words, they begun by shotting out the foreign product on the plea that American indus tries ought lo be protected. That neces sary preliminary accomplished they made every man in tha country who uavs iron or steel iu any shape pla'ik down a hand some profit. Tho unexected, however, has hap pened. Pennsylvania never dreamed of Alabama.

A Worthy Young Parmer and a Friend Bhot From Ambush-A Girl In the Case-Her Throe Brothers Ar rested. Special Dispatch to The Appeal. Chatta.noooa, Tenn., May 29. A most cowardly assassination occurred noar South Pittsburg, about thirty miles Irom this city, this aftornoon, that bos created wild excitement in the neighborhood where it occurred. A wealthy young farmer, who stands vory high in the community, bus been visiting a Miss Barnes, living noar South PilUburg, a protty daughter of a luboring man. Tho dilTerenco iu tho sta tions of tho two excited romark, nnd somo rather ugly stories wero circulated, none of which, it seems, had any foundation. This aflornoon young Martin, in company wilh a friend, called to seo Miss Barnes and remained an hour or more. Thoy left the house about 7 o'clock: nnd had not proceeded more thnn a quarter of a milo, through a pieco of woodland, when they wero fired on by parties from ambush. Young Martin was riddled with buckshot nnd Atkins was seriously wouuded. Oeorgo, Bob nnd Jim Barnes, brothers of tho girl, were arrested, charged with tho crime, nnd an now in JaiL In formation from South Pittsburg says that a lynching has been planned should Martin die tonight Tho jail at South Pituiburgls being guarded by a large crowd of Deputy bhcrius tonight.

It is gratifying tu observe that Western nnd Southern Democratic papers aro now tak ing tiie same position for the same reasons that hnvo so often been given in these columns. The SL Louis Iti-jmhUe led off in urging the now party policy as to geographical lines, and the Southern press nro falling into line with xeal and enthusiasm. Yes terday's llt-puMic says: "The attempt lo crento a following in the West and Houth (or David 11. Hill ns a liemocrutic Presidential can lidnto bos been ono of the most signal failures of recent politics. Sir. Hill's strength ia iu thu Tammany wards ol New ork City und now hro elso. Where he is consid ered at all outside of them, it is generally either with condemnation or with con temptuous indillerence. 'His nnino us a Presidential candidate,' says that repre sentative Southern journal, Tiik Mtweins A ci'KA l., 'would be met with a storm of opposition, and the Cleveland men would le indignant beyond any power to concil iate them. New York is therefore out of the question if the party is to have any reasonable chance for success. By taking a candidate from;tho West, the Democrat of New York would be relieved of any excuse for division for personal or locu'l reasons, and their Stale having so often been honored in tho post, they could huvo no excuse for lukewurmncaa. There ia every reason, then, in the past and thu futuro of the pnrty In New York, why tho National Democratic Convention should go West for its candidate in l2,and why tho Ninth should insist upon a atep lliu't is the only one likely to lead to success.' "Tn Al'l'KAL declares without qualifi cation thnt the candidate should lie from the Weal, because It belicvm that the Hill iulhlence would strain bo used to defeat Mr. Cleveland in Now York. "leaving Unit question entirely for the convention iu s:i.', the iVymWic remains of the opinion It expressed immediately after the Novemlier election, tli.it the seul of political power in the. L'niled States has been for tho lost twenty years west of tho Alleghanies. To its failure to recognixe this fact, more than to any olher cause, tho Ik'iuocrnlic party owes ita long banish ment from iKiwor. If ii aiill fails to rocog nire it, n new Western Mates come in, and ns Western population increases, il bos another 'riod of banishment Is fore 11 a. long at the Ural. When the agricult ural Wct and the agricultural Ninth com bine the Kli-ctoral College for ihe common Interest, tho combination will represent political Power stable and prevailing. The combination ol thn South and Norlhenst has never been atahlo, and there is littlo hope in it lor the luturo. II the IVi.io crane party ia lo grow up wilh the coon try il must atay Niuth and come West." DUYINO UP TUB URCWKHIKS. Operation of the English Syndicate Hi Kentucky Dl.tlll.rl.a.

SCHOOL CLOSING. Pleasant and Profitable Evening at Mrs. Bowles's School on Adams Btreet. The crowd of pntrons and friends who gathered at Mrs. Bowles's school lost even ing were trcntod to a delightful program, which more than repaid them for an un pleasant trip through the storm. The program showed skillful work of the scholars, both from the school of elocution and from that of music, taught by Miss Keating. The opening chorus, "Bells of Corno yille," by the class, was a fuithful pieco of work, rendered by fresh, young voices, whose performance might have emulated a recently amateur rendition. Littlo kntie Macrea, who recited "Tlio Orphans," was grucofully timid, but car ried oil' both applause nnd (lowers. ' An instrumental solo, "The Buttorflics," by Mumio Walworth, followed, nnd tho young lady, though young in years, showed skill moro creditable to ono of older growth. The amusing sketch, "The Wrong Ashes," by Bichnrd Jones, brought smile upon smile and peals of laughter from the nudience, for the young performer deliv ered it in tho d rollout manner. Little Mary Ijonp gave "Tho Children's Carnival," n piano solo, with groat expres sion. She desorved all thn applause that sho received. Willie F.berhnrt recited a dialect story entitled "Our Minister's Sermon," with a remarkable expression for ono so young. Miss Stella Hnrprnan betrayed the possession of a very lino voice, which promises much under development. She sang with esse, Ixiwoll's "livery Zephyr That Blows so Fuir." Nellie Jones, a handsotno young girl, showed herself to advantage, both in pose and in elocution, in reciting "Cicely," a poem thut requires expression and force. William Bowles, a most promising young pianist, was at home on lite instru ment, mid Mayer's "Halcyon Days" was the musical gem of the program. Preston Fort u no evinivd strong dra matic talent in reciting "Flash;" a finely modulated vol co gave cniprcsMcincut to this number. Cora Hexter rerlted "Money Musk" a singularly delightful poem, to piano ac companiment by Mrs. Tohay, who also performed Iho pleasant task for Harry Friedman, as he recited "llio Frl King'' in Gorman. This wus a most crediUililo piece of work for tho young man. Misi Keating introduced by special re quest Dreyschak's exquisito "(iavottc," nnd, il ia useless to add, was received wilh delight, Tho final chorus by tho class was tho "Toreador" song (rom Carmen, nnd Jjio littlo ones could not have show u better re sults from her training. Two medals wero presented by Mrs. Bowles, to Masters Harry Friedman and Adam Jolt, lor prolicicucy in all branches. The pnss'iitutioit was happily made by Prof. Watson. The exercises closed with the audience pleased an I charmed with its variely and quality, aa usual wilh the ex ercises of this school. T HS TROUBLE IN BZHR1NQ STBAIT.
