STILL IN Xrc the Holders of Reading First 'Preference Income fionds, PEES1DBST C01JB1N CALLED DOWfl By a Parly of Kev Iork Brokers Who Call Ilim Several Pet Xames. A SHORT SUSPENSION OP HOSTILITIES 'SPECIAL TELEGRAM TOIIIS DISPATCH. Philadelphia, January 8. The hold ers of Philadelphia and Beading Bailroad first preference income bonds are still in suspense. The managers held a brief ses sion to-day, and adjourned until noon to morrow without taking any action in regard to the payment of interest upon the income bonds. There was a live ly time at the general office of the Beadinc, for President Corbin had some unexpected callers. One of the first trains from New York, to-day, brought to this city three'prominent brokers who were loaded for bear. They were Simon "Worm ser, of the firm of S. & M. Wormser & Co, which has a large following of speculators among the Hebrews of New York; Alfred Scullv, a well-known capital ist and speculative leader, and Mr. Dow, of the firmot Dow, Jones & Co. Hardly had President Corbin got seated in hs arm chair at the Beading general office until the trio gave him a surprise nanv. The scene was a storm v one, and in language quite free from verbosity, Mr.' "Wormser told President Corbin that he was a base deceiver, who had no regard for the "truth. ME. WORMSER'S CLAIMS. Mr. Wormser asserts that within eight davs President Corbin told him positively that full interest would be paid upon the first preference bonds, and upon the strength of Mr. Corbin's representation Mr. Wormser and his clients held on to the large blocks of Readies stock and income bonds which they possessed, and acquired more. After the heat of passion had passed. President Corbin agreed to submit the books and accounts of the company to Lindley Smyth, President of the Pennsylvania Com pany. Mr. Smyth agreed ta make the inspection at once, with expert accountants. The mortgage provides that the managers must pass upon the ques tion of interest not later than January IS, and it is probable that they will delay their action until Mr. Smyth completes his ex amination and reports to Messrs. Wormser, Dow aud Sully, as representatives of the junior bondholders. It Mr. Svmth'a report regarding the amount of earnings and the disposition of them is satisfactory to the New York brokers, that will probably end the proceed ines. but if the report indicates that ex penditures were made which ought to'have been paid for by the issue of new bonds, a strong effort will be made to induco the managers to revise the application of earn ings and pay something as interest upon the firtt income bonds. ALI. GONE HOME AOAHf. Messrs. Sully and Dow returned to New York about 4 o'clock, but Mr. Wormser remained two hours longer, and had a long consultation with Spencer Brvin, of Brvin & Toland, who have been prominently identified with all movements against the Corbin administration. It is said that one result of to-day's con ference will be to present a pretest at the annual meeting, to be held next Monday, against the re-election'of President Corbin. The election will be controlled wholly by the voting trustees. Everyone familiar with Beading affairs believes that the action of the managers in refraining from declaring interest upon the first preference PLEAS FOR PBOTECTIM. Farmer Think Kalle Seed Sib Manufac ture Tobnceo nad Wbliky Interest! Heard by Ibe Tariff Commit, lee Rice .Kalirrs Alio. Washington, January 8. B. Jure, of New York, was the first gentleman to ap pear before the Ways and Means Committee this morning. He said that imported to bacco, whether it came from Cuba or Su matra, was injurious to a great Industry in seven of onr States. Had the 'Secretary of the Treasury followed the plain terms oi the. law, the first bale of Havana or Sumatra wrappers that came to this country would have been the last. The Secretary had adopted a system of averaging the quality of wrappers which was entirely unauthor ized bylaw. S. G. Hubbard, President of the New England Tobacco Growers',Asxoeiatlon; W. C. Morse, representing the Chemung Valley Tobacco Growers' Association, aud Jona than Wychoff, of the New York State To bacco Growers' Association, all asked pro tection for the tobacco grower. The afternoon session of the committee ras devoted to hearing arguments by the wine ana spirit interests. George T. Stagg, ol Kentucky, read a prepared statement fell of statistics exhibiting the importance of the distillery interests. He mid that the distillers do not ass: for a repeal of the in ternal revenue laws, as it would, while in creasing business temporarily, result in overproduction and consequent depression. They would like to have the tax reduced irom 90 cents to CO cents a gallon, but did not care to have it entirely wiped out, as they recognized the fact that whisky is used as a beverage, and should bear its share of taxation. Victor E. Piolett, an old fanner of Penn sylvania, argued in favor of the duties on agricultural products and said he would tax everything which competes with what the farmer crows or makes. Colonel John Screven, of Savannah, spoke in favor of raising the duty on rice. F. G. Ernst, of New Orleans, representing the rice miller;, asked that, in the new tariff bill, the definitions of the various kinds of rice be made more exact Xarge quantities of patna or really "cleaned" rice were being imported as "uncleaned" rice at a rate of duty three-quarters of a cent a pound below the proper rate. The rice men could not stand any further cut in the duty on rice; in fact, those having old lands could not af ford to do business at present prices. Congressman Lansing, of New York, en deavored to impress uppn the committee the desirability ot giving 'agriculture the same degree of protection given manufactures. The business of raiting seeds was practically a manufacture. He wanted a duty of 40 cents a bushel on peas and beans raised for seed, 20 cents instead of 10 cents on barley, and $4 instead ot 52 on hay. BecMed at Lant.

' City Clerk Sbrppnrd May Become the Kext Bank Examiner. City Hall circles are busily employed over the possible changes in the City Clerk's office. George Sheppard is understood to stand under the lightning of an appoint ment as Bank Examiner of this district, in which case George Booth will change chairs and desks. The office of Assistant City Clerk, it is claimed, under the civil ser vice rules, belongs to Ed Martin, who has for several years been connected with the office, and knows its ins and outs thor oughly. Another candidate was in the field yester day whose friends are connected with the City Government, Ab. Moreland, a City Hall reporter or an evening paper. There was no time lost yesterday by either candi date, and others are said to be quietly mak ing points outside, believing that a still hunt will catch the deer.

As Drexel &; (Jo. were in Etrurnental in securing the voting ttustees, it is almost useless to protest against the re-election of Mr. Corbin. who is carrying out the will of the influential banking house. While it is believed by many that the policy of the managers in charging expendi tures for construction to the expense ac count is unfair to the income bondholders, all admit that the junior secnrities and the stock will ultimately be benefited by it, be cause the fixed charges are not increased and the earning capacity of the road is im proved. TflEIK KEW FACTOUT DOSE. The llobbnrds are now Ready to Tarn Oat SlioTel nr.d Hoea. Messrs. Hubbard, the ax manufacturers, whose works were destroyed by fire about six months aco, at the foot of Forty-eighth street and Bailroad, have completed their new manufactory at the Sharpsburg bridge, and are working in it. The new works be longed to tbe Citizen's Oil Company, and was operated by tbem ior many years. After the Standard and Globe full got control of the oil market, the Citizen's propertv be came useless and was thrown on the market. WHen the Hubbards were burnt out, they got possession of this buildinc, and after a complete renovation converted it into a fine shovel and hoe factory. The company has transfered the ax manufactory to Beaver Falls, and will simply make shovels and hoe sat the Sharpsburg' works. There are now some 100 men employed in the works, and when they get the whole place in full working order, it will give em ployment to double that number. NEW STEEL FURNACE. Ad Addition to the Large Plant of William CInrk'a Son Jfc Co. William Clark's Son & Co. are extending their plant. They are putting up a new open-hearth steel furnace on the Siemens Martin pattern, which is nearly completed. The new furnace will have a daily output of 60,000 pounds of steel. The fnrnace will be built entirely of silica brick. The fur nace, being separated from the other open hearth plant, will necessitate the erection of a hydraulic crane, ladle crane, pumps and molds. The cost of the entire work will be upward of 515,000. There has been within the past year a big boom in this branch of steel manufacture, and there is talk that other furnaces are to be erected around the city. opDortunity before verv lone of wrest ling with the artful inaccuracies of people like Flann instead of the sinuosities of city legislation. . CHEERI BLOSSOMS. Officer Tonne Carried a jFnrlg of Flowers Yealerday. The prevailing condition of the weather is having, a serious effect on fruit trees, and if a very cold spell should set in, it can be set down that the fruit crop will not amount to much in this section next season. Officer Louis Young, of the Southside, lives on Arlington Heights. Yesterday, when he reported for duty, he carried in his hand a twig of a cherry tree, covered with fully de veloped blossoms. The tree from which it was taken grows in his lot, where there are several other fruit trees in bloom. Inquiry about the matter developed the fact that fruit trees all over the roan ties are budding, and the blossoms are so far ad vanced that even a heavy frost would kill the entire crop. ' Officer Installed. Allegheny Council No. 3, Independent Sovereigns of Industry, last evening in stalled tbe officers for the year 1890. The new officers are: President, Mary Stuck rath; Vice President, J. V. Bowman; Secre tary, Adam Hoffman; Treasurer, S. J. Pat ton; Conductor, L. L. Piannett; Assistant Conductor, Anna ilunden; Inside Guard, Lucie Boyd; Outside Guard, W. B. Hall. After the installation Mrs. S. McLaughlin, tbe retiring President, was presented by the members of the council with 'a pair of gold eyeglasses. Grocer Seeking; Vnrlcty. Some wholesale grocers of this city feel, it is said, competent to run Long & Co.'s roll ing mill, provided they can buy it cheaply. Their views vary somewhat as to what they would be willing to pay for it. One propo sition looked to tbe raising of 5200,000, and this sum, it would seem, is contemplated with the view that it would purchase the plant and stock it, as some talked as though they expected it could be purchased at near the price bid last Monday. Death of Bllnot IS. Holmes. Minot B. Holmes, aged 20 years, day re ceiving clerk in the main office of the West ern Union Telegraph office, died yesterday evening of typhoid fever, from which be had been a sufferer for tbe past three weeks. He was a sou ot Captain B. D. Holmes, sight receiver in tbe same office, and had been connected with tbe cospany for the past ten years. The Immortal Smothers. A meeting of tbe William Flinn Repub lican Club, or tbe Eleventh-ward, called by Colonel Bobert Smothers, was held at the Eleventh ward schoolhonse last night. George Harrison occupied the chair, and John Smackum acted Secretary. On motion D. W. Downig. of Wooster street, was in dorsed as a candidate for constable of tbe Eleventh wnr.' CONSUMPTION, IN its first stages, can ibe successfully checked by the prompt use of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Even in the later periods of that diseaso, the cough is wonderfully relieved by this medicine. "I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral with the best effect in my practice. This wonderful preparation onco saved my life, I had a constant cough, night sweats, was greatly reduced In flesh, and given up by my physician. One bottle and a half of the Pectoral cured me."' A. J. Eidson, M. D., Middleton, Tennessee. " Several years ago I was severely ill. The doctors said I was In consumption, and that they could do nothing lor me, but advised me, as a last resort, to try Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. After taking this medicine two or three months I was cured, and my health remains good to the present day." James Birchard, Saxien, Conn. Several years ago, on a passage home from California, by water, I contracted so severe a cold that for some days I was confined to my state-room, and a physician on board considered ray life in danger. Happening to have a bottle of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, I used it freely, and my lungs were soon restored to a healthy condition. Since then I have invariably recommended this prep aration.' ' J. B.
