voted against subscription, of the following
duraden
"We respectfully suggest tlmt the County
Court will give us u chunce to vote on a
proposition to Kubscribe twenty or thirty

put before your people, lucked definitenes?.
To be aura Marion and Harrison voted
$100,000 to $130,000 each to a railroad,
without knowing exactly where it was to
come from, and Monongalia could just ns
well have afforded to vote the same way,
bat nevertheless the lack of deflnitenesa
was a serious drawback, in the estimation
of a number of voters.
Tim people of this city have been patiently
awaiiint* tiie iiuiuininition of flip, now i
features of the City Government known as
the Water Board and the Board of Public |
Works. They were authorized by the enablinyuct
of the Legislature, and every-!
body supposed that when the act was
pissed the question had been settled.
Certainly nobody dreamed that a factious
tight, looking to delay and indefinite postponement,
would set in. But in this expectation
;the public seems to have been
mistaken. It looks now as if a dilatory
policy, in the shape 'of absenteeism
from Council, had been.organized for the
express purpose of hindering and defeati?i?
the inauguration of the new boards.
Meanwhile money is being spent in excess
of the appropriations in all directions.
Streets and alleys show an expenditure of
$1$,012, an cxcces of 623,393; Water Works,
an expenditure of $02,971, an excess of
$12,271; and the Fire Department, an expenditure
of $32,295, an excess of $10,045.
Wlio is responsible for these lavish expenditures?
Who proposes to become responsible?
Not the new boards, most certainly.
They are powerless to execute the
ends for which they were created.
TJie obstructionists apparently intend
to kill them oil*. They apparently
intend to keep alive the old expensive and
inefficient system, in defiance of the act of
the Legislature. It is well for the public
to understand the facts of the situation.
Let it b? Mjnorallr known lvhnt 5a winn on
in tli? city council. Tho game should be
fully exposed. A public meeting should
be hold at an early day to give public expression
as to tho way in which tho city's
interests aro being trilled with,
Ola Martin's Ferry neighbors are divided
on the question of voting $50,000
wherewith to build machine shoos for the
Wheeling and Lake Krie road. The Ohio
law does not permit them to make a gift
of the property to the railroad, and therefore
those who favor the project suggest
that the town can of itself build the shops
ami lease them to the railroad company.
A writer iti tho Times, whom wo take to be
Mr. 11. W. Smith, opposes tho suggestion,
and urges, as it seems to us, some very cogent
reasons against it. Tho following is
" ?v ui in.i uDjucuons:
> "The probability is we may get the same
improvements without the outlay, and if
ve would fail in securing tho railroad
MopA wecnn secure something much more
"valuabUi for half the outlay. I would ask

well made. I here is. M Mr, SmUh
scats, every probability ,|?lt the railroad
company will locate tlieirshopant Martin's

It is the natural, 11 not Uie indispen
,.?.iiuui mimesis, the location
of the shops will not bo u matter of firstclaiss
importance to tho town. Shops of
that kind tlo not cnbaneo values iu their
neighborhood, but rather depreciate them.
This is a well known fact. In the third
place, SoO.OOO put into n manufacturing establishment
will do more, for the town than
->j0,000 given away to machine shops?a
great deal more.
The Baltimore & Ohio offered to materially
enlargo their m nchino shops at this
ix)\nt if the county would release';'them,
from taxation?an offer that tho county
very nropcrlv declined. All such demands
are unreasonable in their character. A
subscription to the stock of a rajlroad is
one tiling, but giving it machine
shops or exempting Its property from
laxatiou is another. , -v i,

Washington, Jit no 18.?Tho liver titid
harbor bill passed tho llouso without material
change from tho rej>ort of tho committee.
Quito a number of amendments
were offered and rejected, and very few
wero adonted. but Mr- lloiro wnnnnonf tlin
lucky ones. JIo apprehended some difficulty
in having the MonongahoU appropriation
' of $25,000 agreed to,
but fortunately encountered none. He
said lie was justified in ussuniing
that thu omission was the result
of an accident or a mistake on the part
of tho committee, because an obligation
rested upon tho Government in tho shape
of a contract which could not be disregarded.
Tho committee evidently took the
same view of the matter, for Mr. McLtmo,
by authority of Chairman Page, admitted
that the item was loft out of tho bill by inadvertance.
The Government was under
obligation to construct tho dam
proposed, provided the dam ' at
Jacob'a Crock Is constructed according
to the existing ngrecinent with tho Monongaliela
Navigation Compauy. AVilson and
Kenna wero not ho fortunato in their attempts
to seeuro an appropriation fot-cotnpleting
the improvement of the Little
Kanawha, though they supported such an
amendment at somo- length. Chairman
l'uge, howover, speaking for the
Committee, appreciating the fact
that money could no doubt be well expended
on this river, hold that they were
not justified in appropriating money out
of tho federal Treasury for tho improvement
of a stream in regard to which, under
tho Jaws of West Vfrginia, u private
.corporation was permitted to exact tolls
upon ail commerce passing over it. lie
thought the State Legislaturo ought to repeal
tho law, and that all tolls on that
river should be abrogated.
Mr. Horrmade a speech to the same
effect, insisting that the committee were
right in resolving not to vote a single dollar
under any circumstances to improve
any river, the commerce of which wis not
absolutely free.
Mr. Wilson then offered an amendment
providing that the appropriation
ahull not bo expended until the
Lock aud Little Kanawha Navigation
company shall execute a deed
of release to the Government ot all that
portion of the river above said improvements.
lie argued that there was an implied
obligation on the part of the Government to
complete the improvement, but tho amendment
was iejected.' Mr. Kenna ottered an
amendment that the appropriation asked
for bo not expended until, in a
manner satisfactory to the Secretary
of AVar, the tolls are released on
said river. This was also rejected. Mr.
llorr remarking that if they seek to get
tho improvement of this river, let them
get the embargo oil" and come to Congress
witii a nice clean stream, uien tue committee
can yet at it.
Mr. Wilson then announced that lie
would move an amendment directing tho
Secretary of War to ascertain and report tc
the next Congress the terms on which thesi
locks and dams can be obtained by tlu
Government, to which no objection wa<
made and the amendment was subsequently
adopted.
Mr. Kenna ollered an amendment, which
was rejected, in favor of Tygart'u Valley
river from Grafton u? thi> Euckliannon
fork.
It is understood that Mr. Boteler's appointment
on the Taritf Commission wiu
strongly recommended by J. Ramiolpli
Tucker, between whom and Boteler n
warm friendship exists on account of c
memorable discussion which took place al
Romney about thirty years ago.
The Cabinet* will probably decide, on
Tuesday as to the members of the Geuevs
Award Commission.
Senator Logan takes exception to the
President's action in the case of Lieut
Flipper, and says that if he had been c
white man he would probably have gotten
o/Fwith a light sentence. White olUcetv,
he says, frequently do much worse things,
aud are not pimislied at all.

Knttil from Hi* Otyn I'oeliof.
Washington', June 18.?An examination
of tho Japanese indemnity bills reveals :i
curious botch made of tho matter by the
Senate. As amended by striking out and
inserting various words and lines it is left
so that the President isdirected to payJapau
C7<5?; iWl nnf nf his men nnnkoh Tf tlie
House should concur tho President would
be justified in returning the bill with a demurrer.
The original bill us passed by the
House, provided for the restoration of the
fund to Japan, it never having been converted
into the Treasury. It was specilled
that this fund, under control of the Department
of State, was tho money to be
returned. The Senate struck out tlie words
"fund under control of the Department ol
State," and theainonntinsorted was simply
tho new sum, '?750,000," which the President
was directed to turn over to Japan
through our -Minister to that government;
this without appropriating anything. A
line was also inserted directing that the
bonds which comprise tho funds shall be
burned. This part 0/the bill provides foi
a simple destruction of property to the extent
of tho premium on tho securities,
which is about twenty conts on tho dollar
and which will bo lost by such a senseless
operation. The Senators evince n good
deal of sensitiveness about tho matter
under the universal condemnation theii
has dieted from the nress of the
country without regard to party bins. They
would liku ft chance to recede creditnlily
without nn open confession ot stupidity.
The jlotiso will unanimously refuse ic
concur and an attempt will he made to lis
the matter ui> 111 eontereneo under the iiui
dniico of Mr. William*, of Wisconsin,
chairman of the llouso committee* on

Atlanta, Ga., Juno 17.?A sad case of
injustice was developed in the issue of the
pardon of John Turner, by Gov. Colquitt,
this morning.
Turner was convicted in 1874, at Chatham
County Court, of assnult, with intent
to kill another innn, and sentenced to Convi'.'tV
Camp for ten years, and assigned to
the Dade Coal Mines. In the following
year Itobert Young was convicted at the
same Court for burglary and sentenced
to lUteeu years. They met at the
mines, but nothing except Turner's occasional
quiet protest was ever heurd of or
developed to indicate his innocence. Now,
however, when ho has served over eight
years of his term it turns out that he" was
entirely innocent* Voting, who lias recently
manifested symptoms of u religious
1 awakeuiug, made a statement to one of the
officials that caused the keenest interest U>
be aroused in the case of Turner. The
statement was a confession that he (Young)
was guilty of the crime for which Turner
1 was being punished. Application fori
Turner's pardon wnsat once prepared and
i indorsed by all (lie 'penitentiary officials
, Young will now have* the ten years added
on to his present sentence, which will keep
him in cump until the year 1000.

Account of the Traiedr.
Nknv York, Juue 17.?When the Ameri
can ship Freeman Clark left Calcutta, or
February 9 lost, she was commanded b)
Capt. Jos. S. D wig! it When the vessel ar
rived at this port, this morning, Firai
O/Iicer William Williams was in command,
Capt. Dwight had been murdered' undei
circumstances of peculiar atrocity, on May
27, by the cook nnd steward of ilio vessel,
both Malays. The first ofticer narrowly
escaped a like fate. The two mutineer?
were killed. It waa only through unforeseen
circumstances, it is believed by the
vessel's crow,that a greater tragedy did not
take place.
The vessel had on board a cargo of jute,
consigned to Vernon II. Brown <k Co,, ol
this city. She had previously set sail from
Bombay. Tho voyago was made witnoul
any incident of note, until latitude 18;
north, longitude 05? west was readied on
Saturday, May 27.
On Friday night, before going to bed.
Captain Dwight complained that ho did
not feel right. Ho woa not at all sick, and
bad no definite cause of complaint. Nev
e; tuuiu-v, uu buuiiiuu iu uu wimiTOllIilUUlY
depressed in spirits. When ho left the
deck for his cabin ho called tho second of
(loer, James M. Lowry, and shook hand*
with him. Tho incident waa vividly recalled
by Mr. I/)wry afterwards. It wo*
also at 11:30 p. m. on Friday that tho Cap
tain went to bed. Second Oflicer Lowrj
went off duty at midnight, and at 4 o'clock
on Saturday inorninjj, bis watch was re
sumed.
Shortly Captain Dwight had gone to his
cabin he called out of the aft cabin window
to Mr. Lowry, to take out a dog whicl
had been chained to the cabin table for u
little exercise. Mr. Lowry thinks that tin
muuneera origumuy uueiiueu 10 carry oil
their pinna ?t midnight, when there .wiu
little chance of interference, but were prevented
from doing so by this trivial
occurrence. The (log \vus put bud
into the cabin by Lowry at 5 a.
m. The second ollicer took a cup
I of collee from ihe steward, and thei
went forward about 5:15. It wns abou
this time, it is supposed, that the Stewart
i and cook, armed each with a hatchet ant
I an ordiuary butcher knife, went into tin
I Captain's room and hacked and stabbet
the unfortunate commander to death. Tin
I murder completed, the two villains wen
through the cabin to first officer Williams
room forward. Williams was sleeping, bu
' lie was aroused by a cut over the heat;
ifrom one of the assailants. Just as tin
cook raised his hatchet to inflict anothe:
blow, a seaman named Francisco, who hat
I been attracted to the room by the mate's
cry of "Murder," grappled with him. Tin
four men, struggling together, got outoi
the forward deck, in the meantime Sec
ond Ofhcor Lowrv hud hoard Alt* Wil.
Hams' calls and saw the struggling men
He ran for help to the Captain's room ant
found his commander crouched on hi:
knees by his hunk, bleeding profusely ami
moaning. "The Captain's murdered,'"erie<
Mr. I/)wry to the man at the wheel, anil
ho then dashed back to the forward deck
His appearance attracted the attention oi
the cook, who ran towards Lowrv, crying.
,4I will kill you, you-?-r."
Lowry /led into the GupfjiitiTi room one
secured the Captain's sword, llunnini
around to the forward deck he found tin
steward and the first oillcer clinched,
Lowry cut the steward twice over tlx
shoulder with his sword, and tho mutineei
released his hold of Mr. Williams. A sea
man named Andrew Johnson, who hat
reached the spot, followed tho cuts with i
blow oh the steward's head with a capstan
i oar. unaries Jonnson, tne ship carpenter
who had been on deck only a few minutes
I seized an iron pump handle arid felled tin
I steward. The latter died iu .about fifteei;
(minutes.
Meanwhile Francisco, "who had first'conu
! to Mr. Williams' assistance, on seeing tin
cook run after Lowry, ran to the carpentei
shop and secured an ax. The latter wiu
i chased it> the aft deck where ho turned on
his pursuer, and both men struck at eacli
I other with their weapons at the same time
Francisco received a cat on tho head and
he gashed the cook's face severely. The
1 mutineer then fled forward and was hit
1 with a claw-hammer ;by another" sailor,
i Tho murderer fell aud almost instantly
I died.
1 Lowry, the carpenter, and several seamen
attempted in vain to revive Captain
| Dwigbt. He lingered for two or three
hours and then expired. Tho gashes on
the back of his head and on his face arc
| described as something frightful. Twelve
wounds were inflicted on his body by the
murderers. His right thumb was* .cut oil'
ft is supposed that, awaking under the as
sault, he grabbed his revolver, which hung
over his head, but beforo he could use it,
tho weapon was struck with a hatchet
After the murder the steward took tho re
volver and pointed it at some of tho men
during the struggle. Evidently, however,
h/wli/l nnfc know* limr */"> ??/>
not discharge it. First Officer Williams'
wound, received in tlie affray, was no!
very severe.
The two Malays were said to day by Mr.
Lowry to bave been "buried" after the
aflair* The carpenter said the bodies were
thrown overboard, but who did this be
didn't ktiow.
Capt. Dwigbt was born in Springfield,
Mass. lie was 46 years old, bis birthday
anniversary having occurred a few days
before his murder. He was unmarrie'd.
He had been a captain for about .twenty
years, for the 'ast Bix years commanding
the Freeman Clark.
First Officer "Williams is about forty
years old. Ho is a native of Normany.
He had been twelve months First Officer
of the Freeman Olark and has been in the
mercantile navy all bis life. Ho has been
the master of several ships.
One of the murderers, the cook was
taken on board the vessel, at this city n
year ago. The steward, who had boon on
the'vessel about eighteen months, was
taken on board at Singapore.
i<o reason can bo given for the mutiny
of tKo men. Tlicy nro said to linve
had 110 cnnso o[ complaint, unless tlio
refusiil ot Captain Dwight -to diachargo
them nt Calcutta, as they hail requested
him todo when tlio ship touched -tluit
Eort, might have boon consideredas such
y the men.
Early on tho morning ot May 27, Second
Qliicer [/>\vry says tliqt ho noticed tho
conic sharpening a hatchet nncl two knives.
When asked why he did so, tho cook replied
by inquiring il Sandy llook was in
sight. Lowry laughed at tlio qucrv, as the
ship was only off St. Thomas. Tho two
murderers were the only Malays or China,
men on the ship.

EFFECTS OF TlIE STORM IS EAST ST. LOUIS. ,
The storm seems to have been more se- 1
rcre in Kast St. Louis than on this side of j
he river. Nearly all the southern portiou ,
)i the town was flooded with water, uud t
some fifty houses occupied by poor fam- t
lies were more or less injured, and sev- j
sral blown down entirely or twisted out of j
diape. Women and children left their t
uomes and waded around in the muddy 1
water for hours, seeking safe shelter from I
he storm, filling freight ears and occupy-' 1
ing other places of shelter. j
I'ue rounu-housc of the Narrow Gauge 1
Railroad was ntatiy blown down, and i
Ivoebler's new mill near by lost its roof, >
most of the upper .story, an'd the engine 1
;iouse. About 150 feet of the Vandalia i
Line freight house was carried away. The I
falsi St. Louis elevator, the Advance ele- i
k'alor and Elevator H lost smokestacks or 1

jullered severely. (
A score or more of other buildings, some f
)f them business houses, lost roofs or part a
dI their walls, and considerable stock was i
lamaged or destroyed by the rain. t
The total loss cannot loll short of $30,000,

injured ami Arthur slightly injured.
JSot tur away was the residence of Mr.

joth killed. From here the storm pursued
t zig zag direction to the north of the city,
vhere, after wiping out the finest
esidencesof that portion of the city,
t turned towaid the college. The west
HiiUling was dumped into a heap of lath
ind plaster and broken timber, burying
umeath it eight students who roomed
herein, all of- whom were afterward

In the vicinity stood the house of H. Y.
IcConnell, who was going around almost
temented carrying u lantern in
k'hich there was no glass or light,
noviug it. up and down in search
f valuable . papers which were
down away. The house was a pile of lath,

of tho Amalgamated Association of Iron

Tho workingmen are not united in tie
demand for increased wnges so fur as their
better judgment is concerned. Under j
their trade organization tho majority rules
and as tho Amalgamated Association is a
strong one its members will probably to.i- |
tiuue to act us a unit. With the rnoro intelligent
members opposed to the courso
now'being pursued, however, they will ,
serve as the little leaven that leavebcth the
whole lump. As tho striko proceeds and .'$>
the men who precipitated it no longer : ;
have credit with the grocer, tho pinchco?$jp
hunger will cause them to defer more to i
tho judgment of tho men who were op:^$
posed to the strike, and in tho eiid work ' ^
will probably be resumed at the old rates.
^?v?o wjemu!/ in pivaeui. more unuy, j
among the manufacturers than among Uio , !
strikers. Tito former feel that the strike ia
unjust ami ia not made upon any theory o(;^|S
right. The workingmen are no: in want'
and do not claim to be. .The cost of living^?
ia higher now than a year ago, but, there ia
no claim that the strike is made upon that ?
ground. The alleged basis of tho dismtisr^S
taction is a belief that in tho division of
the product of the joint action of labor aud^Sjj
capital, labor does not get its fair share. " ^
Or in the words of Secretary Martin, of the 1 $
Amalgamated Association, ''the manufacrrps
turers can ailbrd to pay more, and ought to , ?
do it." ' }
As soon a8 the strike was determined
upon President Jarrett took hold with tho'&ffi
intention oi making the best of it, and-.^hc'.^p
is working-with a will to that end. He . ^
convinced the strikers in Cincinnati of the ?
folly of their course, and they resumed
work. lie will probably induce a resump-?^!
tion of business iu St. Louis aiid in the five\; v,

It is the belief of the strikers that this will

to accede to the demands for increased.1 :
pay. Tho manufacturers assert that it
will only make it worse for the strikers by'
supplying the moderate demand for iron 2$
and keeping down the prices, tho sailo ot$|g
wages being graded according to the prices
of iron. The thirty-two mills, most of ,;.-'
them small ones, in Cincinnati, St. Louis,
Chicago and Detroit, will hardly be ablotop$
take tho trade of the ninety largo ones that' k .
will remain closed. Some of tho men are
beginning to tiilk about tho strike "being
put up job" on the part of tho manufactu?r*?jj
rers to increase the price, of iron'while they?|||
are repairing the nulls. Such talk as thispj&j
bespeaks increasing dissatisfaction on tho
part of the men with their attitude.
The number of men now on a striko
estimated at 40,000. The average daily .
pay of these menlakinor'thn rImIIwI :tiwiifcue?
unskilled labor together, is a little over $2 .
a day. At $2, the workingmeii will already
lmve lost $1,124,000 iu wages, arid if they
were to go to work at once it would take *
them Bix months to make up, at the rate of .
increase demanded; for the loss already
sustained. As the strike is likely to con- .
tinuo for weeks and perhaps months, it'
must almost inevitably result in loss to the
workwomen whichever way it ends What
the employers are losing on the $35,000,000 m
of capital can only be vaguely estimated, ;
but at the rates they have been getting for
some time past the loss is not, they assert,
greater than 0 per cent, per annum. There &&
has been some talk of the weaker iimnu-X ^
facturers being forced to succumb to tho ' v
strikers in order to meet notes and drafts
falling due. There is very little in this
suuement. rihe manufacturers as a rulo
only negotiate .paper on business already ?3j$
(lone, the receipts for which : will coma in

then the bunks here and at othcr?$S
iron centers are almost wholly in.the hands
of the manufacturers, and there is an im?
plicit agreement tliat help will be cx-fM
