Tuekk is a moderate si zed pressure for
dwelling houses at Wellflburg.
The late Cotupboll Tarr, of Brooke
county, was in his sixtieth year at the
time of his death.
Tut death of Mrs. Beadle at Valley
Grove, thi? county, on Sow Year's day, is
announced in this morning's paper. She
had lived for half a centurv or more in
the well kuown house in which she died,
and at one time and another her residence
has been visited by nearly all the people j
of Wheeling, who ever indulge in a ride
out the National Hoad.
Tho (JeriuutiN and u Third Term.
The Cleveland Herald, of yesterday, an
nounces that the reporters of that paper
have been at pains to interview a number
of representative German citizens, who
were called on as as they were found, in
the regular w rounds of roportorial duty,
and interviewed on tho subject of a third
term. The Herald says that there was an
, unvarying and decided repugnance to the
nomination of General Grant, and a gen
eral expression of opinion that such noui
' ination would ensure the loss of the
greator portion, if not the whole, of the
German Republican vote. The opposition
was not based on personal grounds, for as
a rule the feeling toward Grant as a man
waskiudly, and the tributes to his abilities
and services as a soldier were general and
sincere. But tho third term a?d the pos
sibilities that lie behind it were sufficient
to make every German interviewed ex
press himself with positiveuess against
No attempt was made to elicit a special
expression of opinion on tho subject of
Grunt's nomination. The questions pro
pounded were simply to ascertain the
views of those interviewed on the general
subject of tho Presidency. But the re
sponses were in all cases of the same gen
eral character. Opposition to Grant's
nomination under any circumstances M as
the first expression. After that came the
consideration of other candidates, and
the name most favorably mentioned was
that of Secretary Sherman. "No one at
all conversaut with German Republican
sentiment in this vicinity (says the Herald)
oould be unaware of the fact that this cor
rectly represents tho state of the case
here. Tho feeling against Grant as tho
possible nominee has been intensified in
stead of diminished by his triumphal pro
gress through the country. The Germans
see in the ovations tendered him too near
a resemblance to tho honors paid a mili
tary monarch on a tour through his do
minions, and their past experience makes
them exceedingly, and it may be unduly,
jealous of such demonstrations. Thoy ex
press a tear that behind u Third Term
may lie a fourth, and thoy are inflexibly
opposed to any violation of that unwritten
law which makes the precedent of the
First Prosident one not to bo exceeded."
Advance in Bur Jfon-Tlir WIVrl Urp re
The Pittsburgh manufacturers advanc
ed the price of bar iron yesterday to
a 3$ cent card, to take oiled Monday
noxt, which advance raises the prico of
boiling at Wheeling and Pittsburgh to
|6 25 per ton. Rod short pig iron (all ore)
is uow quoted at $40 at Pittsburgh, and
part ore and part cinder iron at $35and $P?fl.
The advance in bar iron la now over 100
per cent, above the lowest point reached
in 1879. The Telegraph, of yesterday even
ing, gives the following account of the ac
tion taken by the bar iron men:
The Western Iron Association held u
meeting this morning at 11 o'cleck to dis
cuss the present situation of the trade.
Over sixty representatives of tho local and
j outside manufactories wero present, it be
ing ono of the largest meetings held for
The object of the meeting was to ad*
vance the card rate on bar iron from three
1 j cents to three and a half conts. After the
matter had been discussed at some length
the advanco was agreed upon, to take ef
fect on Monday next. Interviews with
the loading manufacturers, after the meet
ing adjourned, developed the feeling in re
gard to the increase. Tho general feeling
was one of regret that tho advance had to
be mado. The present condition of the
iron trade, tho high price of pig metal and
the immense number of orders received,
compelled tho manufacturers to make the
advance. They deprecated tho increase
because of tho evil effects that it would
probably have. It will causo a number of
mills that aro now idle to start up, and
drms that are In a weak financial condi
tion will be enabled to turn out a largo
amount of work to get tho benefit of the
rise, and thus the market will soon be
flooded, and ?ver-production on a large
j scale will inevitably follow. What the
result of ovor-production will be is a prob
lem that it to best to not attempt to sol vo
Inquiries as to the probable prices of
pig irou were answered by saying that it
is posaiblo that the linost quality of pig
may go as high as $45 soon. It is now
sold at $40, and it is by uo means plenti
ful. Largo stocks of nig are being
held by speculators, and a strong and
determined bull movement has been in
auguaratcd by them, and they so far have
been succoasful in their results. A lead
ing iron broker in this city has a very
heavy stock, which he has been carrying
(or a long time. He is a largo buyer in the
present market, and for some days past
bos made some big purchases. He antici
pates un advance to $15 per ton in a short
time. This will have an immediate effect
on the general iron trade, and among other
change* it is said will send steel rails to
about $90 a ton. The rise in card rates
will be greeted with delight by tho work
men, as of course their wages advance on
the sliding scale, l.'ndor this advanco the
puddiers will receive $6 25 a ton until

In 1879, the mills ran with great regu
larity. Counting the two mills, the aver
age dayi' run for tho yoar, was 284. This
figure in 1878 was 215 days, and in 1877 It
was 193 days. Ho there has been much
improvement in this respect.
The Belmont mill run 278 days during
1879. In that time the product was 209,
738 kegs of nails, for the manufacture of

The now year opened with uArightand

Year's day. Watch meeting service was

The work on the new church building

'"' noticed a letter in yesterday's Intki.i.i ?
ornckii signed "Swift,''that contains some
statements that are calculated. I think, to
injure not only the officers of our .Suite
prison, but owing to the reputation of the
correspondent, Kill place even our Male
in rathoraiid unenviable light before those
not acquainted with the facts in the case.
I do not write as an apologist for any man
or any set of men connected with our
prison, but I wrote to 6ay, Quitting it as
mildly as I possibly can, that the corres
pondent is simply mistaken in some of lii?
assertions. Why he should speak of
Superintendent Bridges as he does, I
know not. He may havo cause or ho may
not, it makes no difference to
me, and 1 do not suppose that
Superintendent Bridges cares. All 1
have to sav concerning this is, that in all
my intercourse with Captain Bridge I
havo found him to be a perfect geulle
man, entirely different indeed from what
one would infer ffirn to be from the com*
munication in question. The facts are
that the Superintendent never was a
rebel Colonel as represented, but a Cap
tain in that army, and we here generally
tako him to he a thoroughly reconstructed
rebel, 0110 who has accepted the results
of the war as many others have n?t. My
idea lias always l>een that the discipline of
the prison is most excellent, and 1 have it
from some oi the contractors who are well
acquainted with the workings of other
"State prisons, that ours is most excellently
conducted in that respect. As to the food
of the convicts, it is true it is not equal to
the food of a first-class hotel, but in order
to see if there was ground* for the state
ment coutained in the letter, 1 had the
privilege of looking upon the food placed
upon the table for dinner to-day, and 1 see
nothing in it that would bo apt tft cause
sickne?s among the convicts. On the con
trary, 1 would think that it was food that
would suit a workinginan. But in order
that your readers may know tho fare I
will give what each man gets at each meal:
Bubakfaht.?Bacon, hominy, wheat
bread, coffee and molasses.
Dinnek.?Mess pork or beef, potatoes
or beans, corn btuad, water/kraut and
turnips at times taking tho place of pota
toes. , . ,
Sui'PKK.?Beef or pork, Potatoes or dried
apples, corn bread and molasses.
This is the diet for the winter months.
In summer, wheat bread of the very best
quality is issued twice a day.
From tho Commissary's book 1 took the
following issue of to-day for L'52 able-bod
ied male convicts: 41) lbs. bacon, 75 lbs.
mess pork, 150 lbs. corn meal, 2"> lbs.
dried apples, one-half barrel Bauer kraut,
12 lbs. nominy, 2} gallons inolaj^es, and 4
lbs. roasted coffee. Beef is furnished
three times a week instead of mess pork.
An to the instruments of torture refer
red to, I must confess that it is rather a
hard mode of punishment, hut it is the ex
perience of all who have had anything to
do with the management of criminals that
there are some that nothing but tho most
sovero punishment will conquer. The
"Shoo My," the dread instrument, is only
used as a last resort. Hut it is not neces
sary for me to write thus. If our prison
is badly managed, it is the duty of the
authorities to seo to it that all wrongs are
righted, and 1 believe that there is uo dif
ficulty,in any one who wishes so to do, to
make a full, fair and impartial investiga
I found to-day all the manufacturing
establishments connected with the prison
in full blast. Messrs. Weaver and Bardall,
in the whip factory, are not ablo to fill
their orders. While in the broom factory
I was informed by Mr. Humphrey that
they could not fill their orders although
they are making ou an average seventy
dozen brooms per day. The Webster
Wagon Company have orders now for
fifteen carloads for different parts of the
country, mostly for tho south and south
west. But I cannot omit the tobacco and
cigar factory. This is becoming: quite an
extensive establishment. Mr. Pollack no
doubt llnds it a very profitable investment
But I have extended my letter far beyond
what I intended, and I may in the future
write more on the same subjects. For the
presont more than enough. X.

CapU McLure appears again in the In
tki.lioknoek with a letter in which he sets
forth clearly tho advantages and profits of
the proposed road. In tho letter the Cap
tain does not entortain a thought of the
road leaving the river at any point, but
that it is to be constructed along the river,
so as to secure the trallic of both sides of
the river. We do not suppose any other
route will be seriously entertained by the
company. Any other routo would not
commaud the trade of both sides of the
river. For instance, leaving the river at
Martinsville and going by Middlebourne
and striking the river again at St. Mary*,'
would lose to tlio road moro than one-half
the trade of the valley between Martins
villo and St. Marys. And what would bo
gained by leaving the river at Martinsville.
Simplv nothing. All the trade the road
would command by such a route would be
reached and secured by tho road along
the river. And the river road woald secure
tho trade of Sardis, Cochransville, Mata
moras (the largest town on the rivor be
tween Mouudavillo and Marietta) Grand
view, as woll as tho traffic for several miles
back of these points on the Ohio side.
There is another thing to be considered.
The very best part of the river trade be
tween Wheeling and Parkersburg lies in
the "Reach"?between St. Marys and Mar
tinsville. If the proposed road should
leave the river at Martinsville, this trade
will justify the building of the road on the
Ohio sido at once, which would not only
gather up all the trade on the Ohio aide,
but likewise reach across tho river and
command everything oa this side for at
least three or four miles back, thus leaving
tho road on this side shorn of the very
best nart of the river trade.
It is said there is a formidable opposi
tion to tho road along the river. Colonel
Johnson Is cited as proof. But the Col
onel is not the only man that lived on tho
river. There are men living in sight of
the Colonel's residence who will give the
right of wav. And besides there is one
man livingnn the river who has said that
if $10,000 will save the enterprise from fall
ing through he Is ready to give it. f>oed
that look Hko deadly opposition?
But why weary our readers with any
further arguments as to tho route. Thero
is but one route, and that is along the

Declination of ho Offer of (JSW?,00i? for
Two Hundred Share* of Htock?The
Inventor'* Lnteftt EsperimenfH.
Kew York, December 30.?The great
demand for shares in the Edison Electric
Light Company continues, and the extra
ordinary price at which the shares are
selling astonishes everyone. The history
of speAilation in this country probably
furnishes no parallel for the remarkable
rise in the speculative value of the stock.
The fact that tkere are plenty of capital
ists that are willing to venture many
thousands of dollars upon the success of
tho Edison system shows conclusively
that they have the fullest faith that Edi
son has triumphantly solved the problem
of electric illumination. If the lucky
j holders of the stock do not share this con
fidence, they at least feel sure that the
public furore will continue until they have
disposed of all their stock at princely fig
ures. They don't seem to care whether
they sell or not, aud they refuse to trans
fer u particle of the stock for less than
$5,000 a shure. One of the largest stock
holders was offered to-day $800,000 cash
for two hundred shares. He declined the
oUur, aud says he will not sell under $1,
000,000. This stock, for which he de
mands a fortune, cost him twelve months
ago $0,000, or &W a share. A good many
investors are picking them up in five and
ten share lots. There are only three thou
| sand shares altogether.
Edison is still burningabout forty lights1
I at Menlo I'ark. The lamps now in use
cannot be turned down. They must'
either glow with their full intensity or be
put out. Mr. Edison, howQver, is making
a bed-room lamp. This will take three
horseshoe-shapcu pieces of charred paper,
within its globe, and there will be an ap
paratus by which the electric current can
be sent through one of theiu at will. One
of them will furnish as much light as an
ordiuary lamp, but tho other two will fur
nish less. There is alao in process of con
struction a cylindrical shade, which, on be
ing placed over the lamp, may be raised or
la wered, houh to regulate the degree of light.
Edison is now experimenting on a lamp
which gives about live limes as much light
us a gas-jet, or as one of his ordinary lamps,
with only double the cost of an ordinary
lamp. In this lamp the loop of charred
paper is shorter. The gross resistance at
any particular point remains the same.
The result is that a greater amount of elec
tricity is driven through the strip of char
coal, and the strip is heated to an intensity
that the eye can hardly bear. To-morrow
night ten street-lamps will be lighted, and
there will bo sixty-five lamps in all burn
ing. There is not likely to be any day
tixed tor the general illumination o't the
ten or eleven houses that constitute Menlo
Park. Many visitors call every day.
Tus increase of gardening in all its
I brandies on this coutineut- is marvelous,
as any one can perceive in reflecting on
these two facts: the largo amount of litera
ture, periodical and permanent, pertaining
to tho science aud practice of horticulture,
and the surprising volume and breadth of
the seed trade. The oxtensive seed house
of I>. M. Fekkv it Co., of Detroit, Mich.,
have published and given away this season
an English edition of 400,000 copies of
their Universal Almanacs, a German edi
tion of 50,000, an edition of,80,000 Bulb
Catalogues, and an edition of 150,000copies
of their large, 180 page, Illustrated Des
criptive and Priced Seed Annual. The
latter is a marvel of beauty and is replete
with useful information. We have no
doubt their rapidly increasing business
warrants such liberality, and we advise all
desiring seeds or plants, to obtain a copy
before making purchases elsowhore.
