in the way, and the three-fifths

paper:
In order to remove all difficulties in the

for which, ou our part, wo
are so earnestly desirous, we adopt the following
minute: That, while receding from
B9 principle, we do hereby declare our regret
and withdrawal of all expressions of

Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in

in HSiion at Springfield,IU.t lor their prayerful
wnaidcration, and, muiatu mutandis, for
their reciprjjcai concurrence as affording a

Adopted, there being only three dissenting
votes. There was a scene oi great excitement.
Prayer was offered, saying, "\Yre
pay that what has been decided hero may
receive the Northern Church ratification,
that we may go on our way rejoicing."
The significance of this action can hardly
bo realized in the North. Sinco the
war the Presbyterians of the South, a most
influential body,have been the bitterest foe?

cifallv more active, but uusettled and
loser all round, with the greatest weaknes
in (kftrrod futures. The chief factor whicl
produced tho weakness was the fino ant

made to adjourn the board two days, fo
Decoration day, which was considered i

creased considerably and shipments wen
small. The depression in corn had its ef
feet and the full force of the amendment

to-day.
Corn was unsettled, weak and lower

The latest advices from Cumberland rep- r
resent a gloomy condition of affairs in that a
town owing to the long continued strike of .
coal miners; that nearly every kind of bus- ;i
iness is at a stand-still, while the terms of a a
compromise between the strikere and the c
companies seem- apparently as remote as
, ever. J
Senator Windorn's whisky-ring investi- o
' gation will begin next Monday. This com- I
, uiittee is a good one: AVindom, Harrison, ^
Hawley, Cockrell and Pugli. It is ftife, u
however, to predict that nothing will ever &
come out of it but a tedious waste of time *
and not much political capital to the Min- ?
nesota Senator. Whatever objections there 8
may be to the bonde J spirits' bill it is hard 0
; to find anybody who believes that the e
friends of the measure bought its way ?
through the House or have undertaken to j|
tamper with the Senate. li
The bill for the relief of the oflicers and
( crew of the famous Monitor, which passed
the Senate on "Wednesday, appropriating
i about $200,000 for that purpose^ is looked
upon by many Democrats ami not a few ?
, Republicans as a job that ought to have Jj
; been discountenanced. Had the twenty- "
3 nine absentees been present its story would k
; certainly not have gone through. The Dein- *
. ocrats who voted for it were Bayard, R

the ex-Senator to his father-in-law, Mr. ^

* recites his domestic grievances in a very L
3 feeling manner and wants to know what, 1
1 under the circumstances, he'Jiad.better do. ^
I The letter is calculated to help the old ti

Hfht-Othcr Labor Halters*
PirranuRair, May 25.?Tho prospects (of
an amicable settlement between tho iron
workers and tho iron manufacturers aru
growing smaller us the dato approaches for
the lock-out,
Tho Amalgamated association assert their
delerminatjon to slaml out for a year,
unless tno auvauco is conceueu. iney
aro making systematic arrangements for a
long strike, and, iu case the grocers decline
to sell on tfino to members of the association
during tho lock-out, they will start
three largo stores in tills city and Allegheny,
from which groceries, dry goods,
etc., will bo dealt out to tho strikers.
On the other hand the manufacturers aro
equally firm in the stand they have taken.
This afternoon they held a meeting
here to consider tho labor question.
Every manufacturer in tho city was
present, and every section of the West,
nave St. I-ouia, was represented. The meettag
was called for the purposoof taking
some united action in tho matter. Pull reports
of trade from tho various sections
were read and tho invariable report
was that trade was slow, and
would not justify an increase in
wages. It was then unanimously resolved
to resist any advance asked by the employes.
Manufacturers spoken to say that
they are prepared to close down their mills
for any length of time. Even tho most
sanguine are of the opinion that tho strike
win tatit juiiy hix mouins.
The eastern mills will continue in operation
but the western manufacturers are not
apprehensive of this affecting the market
as they are unable to make enough iron to
supply the trade. The Cincinnati mills,
who are paying $0 per ton for boiling,
will also continue to run.
There is n rumor that tho grocers are
about to call a meeiing of their union to
determine whether or not iron workers
shall have the privilege of running monthly
bills at the groceries after a strike is inaugurated.
Some of the grocers propose
to refuse credit to the strikers but the
question has not been brought before the
association. In case they decline to sett"
on time the Amalgamated association will,
as before stated, start three large stores,
one in Pittsburgh, one on tho South Side ;
and one in Allegheny.
One of the Western mill owners, in the
city for the purpose of attending the meeting,
was seen by a reporter this morning, '
and announced* his determination not to
attend the meeting at all. He said: "Let
them do as they please upstairs, but I shall
do as I please without regard to their conclusions."
His name ntul nddmw wns on
quired, but be had heard of newspapers
before and refused to give them.
A heavy Pittsburgh manufacturer was
xsked his opinion 01 the matter, as he was
entering the building where the meeting
took place. "1 do not earo to Bpeak on the
subject, as I am angry at tho cause. However,
this meeting will settle it. We will
not accede to the demands of the Amalgamated
association. 1 expect a strike of six 1
months' duration. I do not desire it, but
will sooner let the mills stand idle forever
than accede to the extortionate demands of
the men."
A gentleman from Youngstown, 0., in
speaking of the_situation, said: ''This demand
of the iron workers is the outgrowth ;
of the Cincinnati strike last year. They
are getting $0 per ton there and the manufacturers
here will be compelled to give :
in. In the Cincinnati region the mills
uunuuuc iu iuu ui uiu present pricca *or
while the men are united the manufacturers
are not. The mills that resist will
see their trade going to Cincinnati and the ;
east and one by one they will drop upon
the scale,"
There were several minors yesterday to
the effect that Mr. Jam** Penny, treasurer
of the Amalgamated,association, had run
away with the funds' of the organization, ;
but, as all who know Mr. Penny may easily
surmise, investigation developed the fact
that there was not the slightest truth in the 1
reports. Tha rumors originated in a press
telegram which was sent to this eitv from
Cleveland, and when spoken to on tfje subject
this morning Secretary Martin, of the 1
Amalgamated association, and three or four
members of the same organization who
were seated in his oflice, laughed heartily 1
at the absurdity of the rumors.

Pittsburgh, Slay 25.?Secretary Martin,
of the Amalgamated association, publishes
to-day the following o/ljcial (Jeclarati'on of
the intentions and wishes of the assooia- i
tion in the struggle anticipated by all.
It begins with a statemeut that some of the
delegates would bo satisfied with nothing

ciation, and goes on to say: "There have
been such secret moves mado heretofore,
but up to the present their designs have i
been frustmted. Nothing daunted, however,
it would seem that like tactics are i
to bo brought into play after June 1st next
if the Increase asked for is persisted jn.
How far they will succeed time only .
can tell,' but wo can ?safely say
that should they attempt to enforce it
they will find that they have bit oir more
than they can chaw.. If it is the intention
of the Pittsburgh and Western iron manu\
facturers to crush out the Amalgamated association,
we hopo that at least they will
prosecute their ljght honorably, that is
to Bay. if all the mills in the city and the
West join in the fight, let them do so as a ,
unit, and simply let their mills remain idle
until the men come and ask them to light
tip. Let us have no importation of outside
labor from anywhere, but an upright, genuine,
straightforward, busines3?like test of ,
strength and endurance, and at the end
Uikc a good hearty shake all round, to show
that no hatred or animosity exists on either
side. May the best men win in such a
fight Is our wish, and we will do the best 1
we can to gain the laurels for our side?the
A. A. The association nn:<r agitates strikes,
but when compelled to resort to such
means, though the cup is a hitter ,
one, the contents aro taken and we !
prepare for the worst. "We have carried j
our j>ointin nearly .every instance, narticu*
Iary in a general strike or lockout, and we
will trv by all mean# that are honorable to :
do so In the coming conflict. Wo have no 1
fears of even one member of our society
shirking his duty and'sacrificing his man*
hood during such times, though the other ,
side confidently believe that there is dis- '
sension in onr ranks, and thereby hope to
gain the day, but not by a square shut
down until onp side or the other cries
'enough.' There always is, always was, and ,
always ?*ill be croakers in anv society, and
the A. A. is no exception to the rule. And
if those who met in secret to plot the overthrow
of our society, did so from information
received from such people, they
are only running themselves into .
ft snare. ^ol .Labor knows, aud
particularly so the members of the Amalgamated
association that to 'split' means defeat.
The members havo not forgotten
their divided condition and the evil results
accruing therefrom during the years prior
to the institution of their present impregnable
society, August 4,1870. Jfuring
these years it was a common occurrence to
find the puddlers aiding tho manufacturers
to defeat their fellow (now brother) toilers
in the finishing departments. It was no
surprise, when the manufacturers wanted
to reduce the puddlers, to find tho formei
getting tJieir yards well stocked with, nerImps,
thousands of tons of muck bar,
knowing full well that tho finishing men
would work it up and thus aid them (the
manufacturers) to reduce thopuddler. Not
was there, legally, at that time, anything
wrong in this modoof cutting each other's
throats. Morally there was. But it
made no difference?that was tho laodo ol
procedural tacitly resorted to by, the
manufacturers to reduce or resist an
advance ob wages, and wo confess it worked
charmingly, But matters are now changed
wonderful I v. nnd whilo hoiim mnnnfjirtnr.
ere think tfmt 'our employes will get along
better without a strong, arbitrary organization
than thev have with it,' the men don't
think ro, and 'a burned child dreads the
lire.'" "The imagined 'dissension' tim
thcro is so much stress laid upon asexistint
in our ranks is simply in the minds
of somo of the manufacturers, who
tells the puddler that ho ought
to get more and the theaters and
rollers less, and then when the puddler
demands it tells the heater and roller that
'they would get along better In an organization
by themselves.' It won't work, and
the iron or steel worker who advocates it
either in the press, in tho mill or on the
street is only advocating his own downfall,
as well as that of an organization that alono
can get and maintain for him good living
wages. Nothing short of the Amalgamated
Association will ever benefit the iron and
steel workers, and knowing tl>is2 every
uicuiuui i.ii11 in? ruucu ujiuii iu uu urn uuiy
in thwarting all secret designs laid for its
annihilation."
The NUmitlou tit Chlcnffo.
Chicago, May 25.?a reporter, meeting
a local manufacturer, asked him if ho
thought tho men in this district would ask
for additional wages, and, if so, what effect
it would have.
"I have no idea," said lie. "whether tho
men intend to demand an Increase, but if
they do I do not think tho manufacturers
will give it, for the simple reason that they
cannot afford it. It would bo better to shut
down. There is no demand for iron or
nails, and stocks aro large, and in my
opinion it costs more to-day to produce
iron in this market than it is sold
for. If tho men ask for an increase
now it is my impression that a good
manv of the works will ston. This is a
pod time to do it, as the manufacturers
nave money enough to pay their debts,
and it would l>e better to shut up than run
on and become embarrassed from week to
week by putting paper afloat While we
don't want an excuse for closing up, I
think that course would be pursued by!
many at least, if the men demand an increase
a9 the trade is at present."
Mr. 0. W. Potter, Superintendent of the
North Chicago Rolling Mills, said that ho
was free to confess that the outlook was,
not very favorable; strikes appeared to be j
going the rounds of all the trades this year, |
though there was no apparent reason why.
As to Chicago, neither the men nor the.
employes were prepared for any lockout.
The J?orth Chicago Mills had 1,000 men i
idle in the iron department, and the trade
was uniformly dull throughout the country.
The men knew, or could know if they J
Wished, that the manufacturers had fared1
very badij* the past three month?, and un-1
dor all ovi<4tini_'n mnro in-1
opportune time for a strike could scarcely
be chosen.
The Trmlc.s Union a?<I lite ImmlgrnntM.
New York, May 25.?The trades union
people have to confront a delicate, if not
difttcult, problem in the immense and nnintermitteut
additions to the supply of
skilled labor which Europe is now sending
to us_ through Castle Garden. Nearly
every imaginable trade aud handicraft has
its representatives among these newcomers,
and, what is more, they are men
who, as a rule, are thorough masters of
their trade, whatever it may be, having
served long apprenticeships to it at home,
the periods thereof extending from five
to seveu years. At a time when
a scries of KtriUos for higher
wages is in prognvyj at very nearly
all our great manufacturing and business
ceutres, this extmordinarv accretion of German,
Scandinavian. Italian and British
skilled workmen cauuot but exercise ere
long, if it does not already, a commanding
influence upon the industrial situation,
{'he comparatively insignificant wages for
tv'biuh thjs vast army of mechanics and arlisaus
have been accustomed to toil in their
own country make even the lowest wages
here, against which our wo'k people are
striking, very, attractive, ami it will be no
isasy matter, therefore, to persuade them to
resist that attraction, in order simply to
promote a strike. Thus fur the Labor .Bureau
has managed to distribute them pretty
woll all ovor the country, so that
the pre/wire at particular points is not
felt, but it is believed that tho time is
coming when they will be concentrated
in the cities, and become, as it
were, a more compact power than at present.
This 13 the contingency the leading
men of the trades societies are anticipating,
and they arc prepaiing aecordingly to
deal with it. The first step 3s to secure the
sympathies of the newcomers, and with
that view an endeavor will bo made to
reach them through tho medium of circulars
printed in the various languages, appea'ing
to them, as a matter of self-interest,
to matte common cause witn lue workingmen
of their adopted country, and thus
secure the "rights". which were denied
them under the tax-ridden, monopoly Governments
of Kurope, from whose oppressions
they have (led. This work, it is understood,
\yiil be entered upon at once,
rjmj, as a necessary preliminary, committees
familiar with the different luncuageH
will be placed in communication with Gas- j
tlo Garden, to bring the newcomers as
much as possible into friendly communication
with their fellow-craftsmen of the
Unions in whatever part of the country
they may locate. x ' |

the meeting held _ here some

Jurrctt, of Pittsburgh. _ The object of
the meeting is to determine the .schedule
of .wages to be paid employes during the
coining year, Jlr. Ilelmbacher, of the
Ilelmbacher mills, said that outside of
Pittsburgh the workmen were not demanding
an increase of wages; he said that the
trade of the rolling mil J.s had decreased nipidly
within the past few months and that
tiie prospects were unfavorable; that railroads
have withdrawn all extra trains and
are not buying anything nosv, while the
general trade is exceedingly dull.
