FLIRTATION WITH A SEQUEL. Embarrassing Position of Two Oakley, Mich. Humorists. Oakley, Mich., Dec. 17. Tho Misses Lee, of Oberlln, O., advertised for cor respondents with a view to matrimony. Fred Read and llorven Teachout, of Oakley, replied, and the letters soon flew thick and fast. At last the boys proposed matrimony, provided the girls would come here. A few days ago the Misses Lee and everal large trunks arrived. The girls held interviews with the boys and were greatly disappointed to learn that their own accomplishments did not suit. The girls went to Tachnut's house and de clared that they would stay until the young: men came to terms. The boys consulted attorneys, and the whole vil lage took sides. The sisters left for home today, threatening to bring suit. The boys say they were only in fun. BALL PITCHINQ MACHINE TRIED. Professor Illntoa's Automatic Tosser Proves a Success. Princeton, N. J., Dec. 17. Professor Hinton gave the first public exhibition of his base ball pitching machine to night In the gymnasium. The gun, which is a short, breech loading cannon, twenty-four Inches In length, and placed upon a two-wheeled carriage, was placed at one end of the gymnasium. At the other was a net at which the professor pitched several balls from the cannon. All were suc cessful, and the curves could be seen as distinctly as if sent from the hand of one of the best 'varsity twirlers. In the lecture Professor Hinton told of his early experiments with the ma chine, how the ball was made to curve, and how he expected that the national game would receive a great change through the agency of the mechanical pitcher. . i IRON AND STEEL TRADE. V Th3 Market Unsettled hy the Break in the Bessemer. .. Pittsburg. Pa.. Dec. 17. The Ameri can Manufacturer In Its edition tomor row will say concerning the outlook in the Iron and steel trade: The break In the bessemer billet pool seems to have unsettled the Iron and steel market generally. In a great many lines there la nothing definite upon which to base prices, as the price or oessemer steel is no one knows where. It Is conceded that the price Has dropped at least S3 per ton during the past week, and still lower figures are predicted. The probability Is that steel rails will be put at $25, and bes semer billets will be considerably be low the pool rates Our reports this week show little new. New York reports prices somewhat Ir regular, but without any serious break. The western market Is featureless. At Chicago, buyers are holding off, and Cin cinnati reports some furnaces as will Ins; to make concessions tor the next 60 days. The only orders coming In are for quick shipment. Cleveland also re ports a slow sale of pig Iron. The fin ished lines are little or no better at any point. The main trouble In the market Is that excepted business does not come, and new enterprises are still being deferred. RAILWAY STATISTICS. Twenty Thousand Lest Men Employed in 1896 Than In the Year 1892. Harrlsburg, Pa., Dec. 17. From the slate railway bureau comes the Intelli gence that nearly 20,000 less men were employed by the railroads of Pennsyl vania In 1SU6 than during the year 1882. The number of employes in 1891! were 21S.573; in 1893. 200,158; 1894, 176.228; 1895, 193,101; 1896, 194,324. The report states that there are substantially a million p&rsons sustained through the employ ment given by the railroads of the state. Had the percentage of Increase between 1888 and 1892 been maintained, the number of employes now would be about 275,000. It Is probable that there has been as much suffering among rail way employes as among any of the oth er classes of labor as thousands have been absolutely thrown out of employ ment. The dally compensation of the rail way employes has been maintained, even by roads that have gone into the hands of receivers. The Pennsylvania system employs 82,565 men in the state. Eight companies employ about 77 per cent, of all the railway men In the state, and annually pay them $86,504,371 of which amount the Pennsylvania pays $..1,579,909. In computing the num ber of railway employes in the coun try, it must be remembered that there has been a slight Increase in railway mileage, which of Itself would cause an Increase in the number of employes. The true test in making comparisons, Is to compare one year with another with reference to the number of men em ployed per 100 miles of road. Such comparison will disclose the fact that while there has been a falling off In the number of men, there has been a greater percentage of decrease in the number of men per 100 miles of rood. In Pennsylvania in 1896 there were 993 employes per 100 miles of road. C0R8ETT SIQNS THE PAPERS. He Agrees to Fight Fltssimmons for Purse of $15,000. New York, Dec. 17. Dan Stuart met James J. Corbett this afternoon at the Police Gazette office for the purpose of getting the pugilist's signature to articles of agreement for a finish fight with Bob Fitzsimmons. Stuart's prop osition was a purse of $15,000 for a glove contest to be fought in January, the Texan agreeing to furnish a battle ground wnere the fight can be held without Interference, failing which he will forfeit the purse. Corbett considered the Texan's prop osition favorably and both men cross ed the ferry to Taylor's hotel in Jersey City where the articles were signed. This was done to avoid the penalty of arrest which would be incurred by sign ing articles for a prize fight in this etate. Stuart will endeavor to get FltZBlm mons' signature immediately. For obvious reasons the name of the place where Stuart proposes to bring off the battle was not divulged. The date of the proposed battle hus been arranged for March 17, next. The place of the battle Is to be announced before Feb ruary 17. Stuart Is to post a forfeit of $5,000 In the hands of Richard K. Fox, or Al Smith, and Corbett and Fitzsimmons must each post $2,000 as a guarantee of good faith. George Slier, of Chicago, Is named as referee. Corbett signed the articles before he noticed that thev reserved all privileges for Stuart and he became somewhat excited when he thought of the Klnetescope privileges. After some reflection he finally said: "I would not change the articles for one million dollars, but If I find out Julian or Fitzsimmons get any share of privileges money I will kick for my share." Corbett also stated that he would like to have an additional clause in serted calling for a $10,000 side bet In order that he might put himself right before the public on Fitzsimmons' statements, but stated that as far as he was concerned himself, he was ready to fight. the Australian for a dime or for nothing. Although for obvious rea sons no place was mentioned for the holding of the fight It Is not unlikely that the rendezvous will bp In Mexico. Stuart stated that he would wait until Fitzsimmons arrived In this city to get his signature to the articles. The Australian Is due here In about ten days. Fitzsimmons was not represented at the meeting. EXCEPTIONS SUSTAINED. Decision of Judge Simonton in the Lancaster Insuranca Case. Harrlsburg, Pa., Dec. 17. Tvhen tlTe Lancaster County Mutual Live Stock and Chattel Theft Insuranca company was declared Insolvent In 1892 and W. B. Given, of Columbia, appointed re ceiver, he was authorized by the court to lay an assessment of twelve per cent, on all amounts insured In the company. Quite a number of policy holders paid this assessment. J. M. Rettew resisted and Judge McPherson decided on the trial that his policy was not assessable, which the Supreme Court sustained. Attempts to collect further assessments were abandoned. Tluwe who paid their assessments claimed that they should be returned and filed exceptions to the report of the auditor appointed to distribute bal ance in hands of the receiver. Judge Simonton handed down an opinion, to day sustaining the exceptions. RAIL RATES REDUCED. Carnegie Steel Company Seek to Stimulate Trade. New York. Dec. 17. It was announced here today that the Carnegie Steel com pany has reduced the price of steel rails from $28 to $25 per ton. For a year past the price has been $28. The object of the reduction, it Is said, to Induce the railroad lines to buy more freely. The reduction follows yester day's meeting In this city of the steel rail pool, which President Lelshman, of the Carnegie company attended. During 1896 the consumption of steel rails. It Is reported, will not exceed 800,000 tons, against 2,000,000 tons the ordinary previous annual consumption. The steel rail pool which caused the advance In the price, was formed in November, 1893. Steel rails at that time were $20 a ton. The pool has since gradually advanced the price to If the Bnby Is Catting Teeth.
