Perhaps nothing about the present strike
of iron workers lias been the subject 0/
more frujucnt remark than the position
taken bv the principal officers of the Amalpmateri
Association, nearly all of* whom
are free to admit, eviiu to outsiders, that
tbev do not approve it. It is well known
that this feeling had no slight influence in
bringing about the changes in the constitution
at the recent convention, which
*ill make the Association in the future
(jaite a different thing from what it hiw
been heretofore. List evening a Dispatch
reporter had a short talk with Treasurer
l'enney, at his home 011 the South
Side, in which the strike was the
principal topic. "I do not see any prosed
of an early settlement of the
ijncstion," said he, replying to the reporter's
iftijuiry. "I am making mv calculations
on the supposition that it i9 going to
lart all winter. Yes, I think the men are
fully as tirm and as determined as at any
time since the strike was declared. I do
strt ae any evidence of weakening. That
wis clearly shown hist week in the failure
of the effort to get up a district meeting,
Sjtnc members of a few of the lodges made
the attempt, but it was an utter failure and
fell flat That is a very positive indication
that there is no great dissatisfaction anyhow
among our member^."
"Did the strike in the first place meet
with your approval V" asked the reporter.
"J think the association made a mistake
in declaring it when they did. I mean
that it whs not nood nolicv. The result
I had been that whatever loss there has been
thus far litis been borne by the men, whik
| the manufacturers have made nearly a>
much money as usual. For the; first six
wet-la of the strike the amount of business
fell only o per cent, below that for the same
titue last year. They are only now beginning
to feel it. If the demand for iron had
been liri.-k and the stock light, both would
have lost in the same proportion."
"Do you think from your knowledge of
the iron market, that the manufacturer*
ran easily afford to pay the new scale."
"I would not care to express an opinion
on that point. There id one thine 1 havi
noticed, and that is that the profit of the
business is not fairly divided. I know
mill men who have bad good jobs am:
spent "20 and 30 years in the business and
who have been steady and careful, and yei
they have not succeeded in saving anything
like sis much money as the manufacturer
who made a beginning by putting
$3,000 iuto a mill. Makinir due allowanct
for the interest and compensation for tin
risks tliat have to be run, the produce!
ilix-s not get his due share of the profits."
"Is there any probability of tlie Amalgamated
Association proposing a compromise
of any kind?" .
"I do not h?li?H*n thorp 5?. T linvn K??f>r
no indication of thut whatever. In nl
my mociaiha with the men since the
ttrike began I have never heard it. stig
?sled." "
"How would a scheme of arbitration be
received by the members of the Associa
lion ?"
"I don't think we are prepared for arbi
(ration. 1 mean not aloue in this particu
kr case, bat generally. The tim^ fo
arbitration as a remedy for labor trouble
hw not come yet. 1 have no doubt tha
we will be educated up to a poiut when w<
will adopt it.
The reporter then called Mr. Penny's at
Untion to the criticisms that have been
inadeon the course taken by the jussocia
tiou in lirst declaring for an advance ir
the several departments and then knock
in^otl'all but the puddlers and the rollers
ami sulwequently rc-aflirming the orhrina
demands, and asked hiui if there was any
explanation for it.
He replied that the whole thing was tin
fault of the manufacturers themselves.
"There are some things about that which
have never yet been brought out before tb<
public. 1 would not tell them to a report
*r, but if any manufacturer deuie3 it I am
rvatlv to prove to him thut the manufueturcis
are to blame tor the new scale beinj.

cession that was made in everything but

ilit-fie concessions being taken baek agaiu
anu the original scale put forward us the
ultimatum of thy association. It would
doubtless make very interesting reading,
, but there are are some things, you know,
we must keep to ourselves."
| The conversation then turned on the
1 finincia! condition of the union and tht
ability of the men to stand a. long strike,

Strllr-Stalui of the Situation.
Washington, August 22.-r* Kx-Senator 1
West, of l^onisiann, theStalwart whom the I
Stalwarts made one of this Commissioners J
of the District of Columbia the other day |
in place of Josiah Dent, a very respectable,
old-fashioned conservative resident, is
making a grout deu) of trouble in the Board
already, lie is trying to pot tlie contract of 1
all the District patronage in hin hands, in \
order to ijivo fences to .Stalwart politicians j
liko himself. J. llalo Sypher is tho most
prominent among those named for the
oilicea ho -wauls to parcel out. 'CoininU- ]
sioner Thomas 1'. Morgan, an old resident, ?
appointed by Hayes, and Major Lyducker, t
U. H. Engineer, appointed by Arthur, the <
remaining members of the Hoard, are do- '
tug all that they can to thwart his purpose.
West thinks ho will succeed in his attempt
to turn what now is a non-partisan,
respectable and itlicient city government 1
into a Stalwart political much inc.
West liaa gone to New York to see Arthur
about it. It is believed that ho might (
have carried his points if he had not gone i
at the matter so recklessly, Tho Star says,
verv sensibly, to-night: The present form '
of bistrict O'ovcrntnent luia now been on I
trial for four years, and the general verdict 1
is undoubtedly in its favor. Despite some j
anomalies and defects in th?? Hvupm ?mi
soiiiti fuiilt finding, occasionally just, *
against individual otficiala, tho growth of
opinion lui^becn steadily in its favor. j
The feeling is that under this form of <
government the District financial affairs .
! have been mannged honestly, and tiiat
Washington, in its charge, is rapidly he- '
coining the best paved and shaded", the .
, most orderly and the handsomest and
pleasantest city in the country.
The growing confidence in the District
1 Government has been shown by the good
! words spoken in its behalf in "Congress, ,
and by the constantly increasing majorities (
, given in that budy for District appropria,
lions, and though a majority, perhaps '
! two-thirds, of the District officials ]
, and employes have been Republicans,
' yet the Government has been run so little ,
upon a partisan gauge, that it has had the
support and confidence of all parties in .
| Congress, a very important consideration
in view of the elo'so division of parties in "
. both Houses, in fact this non-partisan
I character of the District Government
which lias earned for it this general regard
. was distinctly guaranteed on the occasion of |
the passage of the bill providing for the
Commisstonership form of Government
Both Houses of Congress, it willbcremein* ,
. bered, were Democratic, and objection was '
made by the Democrats to the provision j
giving the appoiutment of the (
i Commissioners to the President i
. (Hayes), that he would make
i it a partisan Board. Mr. Garfield, on the 1
floor of the House, made the^iledge that if
5 the appointing power was left with the ,
. President, the l?uard of Commissioners \
should not he composed on a party basis,
I and President Haves redeemed that,,
pledge by his appointments and by in- (
fatructingthe Commissioners toavoid'.anv- ,
thing like partisanship in^ their course. ,
i xms is us a siiouiu ue. i.ne uistrict ot |
Columbia is the ward of the Nation, over
! which Congress, and not any party, has ?
. exclusive control. It needs the good will
. of all parties, und it would be' fatal to its <
* interests if its government should be made
! a mere machine in the interests of one ,
I party, nod, therefore, earn the hostility of

1 PlTTSOCJIKflf, August 22.?It was out of
the question to-day to evolve anything in
teresting in the iron situation. President 1
1 Jarrett returned home last evening, but
, had no news to give. He spoke freely on
1 the question ot the rumors that had gained
! currency regarding the want anjl destitution
of members of'the Association. He
, had made it a point to closely question
members on the subject und failed in every |
case to disclose any case of want. As re- ;
garda. the situation at "Voungstown, Mr.
r Jarrett stated that there was nothing to
s tell. The men were firm and so wero Brown,
1 Bonneil tfc Co., and that so far, the latter
* had not been able to engage any workmen
on the terms proposed; they might in time
* obtain mem, but evidently Mr. Jarrett was
1 not saguiue on that point. At McKeesport
" lie believed-that not more than three fur
1 Dacca were at work, though report placed
the number at ten.
I llegarding the stoppage of the Bessemer i
' Steel Works, Mr. Smith, of the tlrm in i
question, had little to say. That little sufiiced
to dispose of rumors relative to causes i
J at work. The converting department it j
was found necessary to close, and this (
throwing out the rail mill it was dtenied i
i best to close the entire mill for a short <
time. The gentleman emphatically denied i
that the Union or non-Unionism had any- f
tiling to do with the stoppage. The rumor '
' giveu yesterday was a widespread one, i
' however, and resulted in a call at the office i
by Homestead tradesmen who desired light .
on the subject. They retired apparently :
satisfied. t
President Jarrett, who was in his accus- <
' totnod place at the Amalgamated Assoeia- j
' tion rooms this morning, expressed him- i
self very decidedly in reference to the aliegationa
receptly made that lie is in opposi* j
tiou to the strike. In order to set himself i
! Equarelv before the public, he made a state- I

"I want you to give this fact just as 1

: statements in reference to my having talk'
ed against the strike prior to that time are
[ all right, but no man can truthfully state
that I have i-aid a word since June J,
which indicated a disposition on my part
| to seek a compromise or surrender. Hereto'

of the scale in every instance where it ha?

Editors IntelUgenct'r. I3
I clip the following from your "Weston 1
letter in to-day's Ixtki.ligescki:: u
"Did it ever come to your knowledge that v.
nwuy out in the wilds of Tucker we have tl
one'of the bravest little Republican or- r<
winizations in the State? Garfield received d
ISO out of the IMO votes cast; and Col. d
Menear, a gallant old "stalwart Republi- ft
can, was elected sheritf. I received a letter tc
from a gentleman residing there the other b
(Jay, in which he said: 'We are in a stroug al
Bourbon county here. Ten years ago they fa
voted five to our one: twovears n<?n tht>v
had not two to our one. The Republicans st
nre united and the Democrats divided; and hi
if we have proper candidates, who can ti:
talk well and have the right kind of stuff
in them, the Bourbons will have difficulty
in holding even a majority.' [The Fairmont n
2onvention should make a note of this.]"
I'call special attention to it, just on the
sve of the Congressional Convention, to be
held at Fairmont, on Thursday. I? is a fn
strong argument in favor of a straight nonii- tli
nation. It goes to show what can be ac- ,
:omp!ished by organization and a steadfast
idherence to" principle. The election of
Sheriff. Menear in the Bourbon county of tv
Pucker was not brought about by the n,
sacrifice of ar-sitigle principle, or a single
bit of self respect. In the summer of ISSO,
lohn \V. Mason, of Taylor, county, made at 1U
it. George, tlie first Republican speech 81
?ver made in Tucker county. The election
)f Mr. Meuear and the organization ami er
jains rtferredjo are some of the legitimate se
results. ~
At Fairmont, quite a number of hitherto 1)1
rood Republicans are said to favor tho
nomination of Bethuel \1. Kitchen for
Jongresa. Ii is even reported, that in H
new of securing as strong a support as pos- w
sible, no County convention was called, a>
mil a majority [of the delegates in the va- in
rious districts were rejected by the Exec- di
ltive Committee. . This is \yith- ft
DUt precedent or authority. Tho out- ki
ioinc of it may possibly be a rebuke ijt t)je tr,
polls. A method of this sort savors too b(
strongly of bossism and ring rule. While ki
>ve find a majority of the Republicans si
lereahouts disposed to acfjiuese in the will b(
>f the Fairmont Convention, there is an
universal feeling in opposition
;o the nomination of any man
nher than a tried and true,
straight-out Republican. In our opinion "
iny other course^ will result in a humilia- st
ion that will be intensified by defeat This ^

1th most favorable prospects for the bucks
of the .Liberal-Coalition ticket, but
hilo tho leaders of the movement .have
een concentrating their efforts upon the
juversion of white Bourbons' in tho west,
political storm has been brewing in the
intern negro counties which is likely to
isure certain defeat unless a speedy agistment
of dillicultles in tho Secoud Conressional
district; is brought about.
Last month tho Congressional Cotivenon
for the Second district was held at
filson. Tho two principal eandidatcabciro
that Convention were J as. E. O'flani,
jlored, and Orlando llubbs, tho present
epreaentative. Upon the orgauizutfon,
enerul Estea, a llubbs wan, was made
I'rmaiicnt chairman by a vole of 17 to 35,
jeru being U2 votes east. After the dillerut
eandidutea had been placed iu nouiiation.
but before a vote was reached, a
Dlored delegate, named Wassom, mounted
table aud moved the nomination of
I'llara, hia brother-in-law, by acclamaou.
\Vassom put the motion u> tho Condition,
and declared it carried 'over the
ead of the Chairman, whereupon
ic Convention broke up in a row.
loth aspirants have since announced tlitiin Ives
candidates, O'LIara claiming to tuive
ten regularly nominated, and llubba nsirting
that he was the choice -of the conention
ami would have been nominated
ad' a vote been taken. The prevalent
elief, however, is that these two canMates
would huve had sixteen votes each,
ut the chairman being a llubbs man, the
'Ijara delegates became frightened and
)rced their man unon the convention as
>e only,, way out* ol tho difficulty. The
Imirtnan baa just issued a can reconvening
;?e convention for the 24th instant,' "(or
:ie purpose of completing the business for
rhieh it was originally convened." As
Ir. llubbs claims that there was no notn'iation,
he and his friend, tho ohairmuu,
ill hardly consider tho business for which
; was convened completed untilauoiniation
is made.
Meanwhile O'Hara is furious and delares
that if his opponent is recognized he
ill defeat Dockery and Folk, tho Coalion
nominees for Cougresstuan-at-Lnrge
nd Supremo Judge, by swapping O'Hura
otes for Bennett anil Kulfin votes with
io Democrats of bis district. The district
i overwhelmingly Republican, there being
pwards of ten thousand negro majority,
ud it is hardly probable that a Democrat
3uld be elected there even if both these
indidates remained in the field. It is a
irious question, requiring no little display
f wisdom on the part of the State comlittee,
for if O'Hara's threat is carried out
10 defeat of the .Coalitionists is certain.

ere fellow-passenirera with Mr. Davitt on
ie Pcnnland. Mr. Baird favors a peasant

f the Irish tenant farmer class and the iureasing
American competition, which renerthe
payment of increased rent?in the
ay of purchasing the fee simple of their
inns?an impossible task. In the course
f the talk Mr. Baird summarized -his
iews as follows: "In . my opiu)n
there is no hope whatever" for Iremd,with
or without a peasant proprietary,
nless there be a thorough and complete
iversification in the industries'of the peole,
to the end that local markets for labor
nd its products should be built up. In a
ord, that active association among the
eople should take place. Competition
ith England alone in manufactures will (
e a heavy burden for Ireland to bear, but
she is asked, in addition to this, tr> subtit

her case is hopeless, even should a re*I

Chicago, August 22.?A Mount Pulaski,
Ills., special tsuys; Charles McMfthon, the
farmer, who, with his hireil men, fell a
victim to assassins near here, is the owner
of a splendid frirm, where he dwelt in a
quiet, retired way, as becomes a mau of
forty, and had accumulated n largo fortune.
Ho was a bachelor and did liisown housekeeping,
J no. Cartock, aged eighteen, and
Jiob Matheny, aged 20, being (ho only men
about the place. Both were quite indus
trious. anil like McMahori, much esteemed, j
They were lust seen-on Thursday of hint
week stacking wheat, and the neighbors
observing their absence, searched
for them on Saturday and Sunday,
ami finally found all three bodies ;
festering and offensively odorous iu the :
rank weeds about the house. .McMahon's
throat was cut from ear to ear and his head ,
almost seveied Irani the body; the gash extending
clear down the spinal column.
There was no shape to the battered head,
about which a cloth had been tied. The ]
bodies of Cartock'and Matheny were cov- ;
ered with clotted gore, their throals cut as <
their'master's had been. The limbs were \
hound securely with twine taken from the '
reaping machine, gagged and blindfolded '
with cloths. Everything pointed to the !
most fiendish determination and deliberate
purpose. The house was ransacked, $2,000 1
in money taken and the household goods t
broken. }
The Coroner's jury decided that the .
murder had been committed by unknown 1
persons, but the whole country is ablaze 1
and on the alert. Lynch law will be iu* {
evitable if the murderers can be secured. '
Suspicion rests on a man who worked for *
the farmer some months ago, and who was *
seen on the farm on Thursday. Foot '
prints, as if two men were walking single y
tile, were discovered and followed two *
miles across low, until the trail was lost 1
in the main road. There are no other *
clues. The assassins had fed the horses (
and taken other precautions to prevent the 1
discovery of the crime. They were novices 1
in tt>o dreadful work. Jakie, who Is suspected,
is ii tramping farm hand and quarreled
with McMahon about a year ago..
Si'kingfield, Ilu, August 22.?A special
to the State J ley inter from Mt. l'ulaski says,
one of the probable murderers of McMahan
has probably been arrested, a discharged t
hand named John Hush. He was taken
in charge at Latham last night. Upon being
arrested he declared his innocence,
claiming he slept in a box car in Latham
on the night of the murder with one Meyers.
Meyers, when found, denied the assertion.
Hush lately has been at work for i
John Kummell, a farmer near Latham.
The prisoner has been placed in jail at
A llriilo or Two .llnrilci-flil.
G.m.kna, III, August 22.?A corp.? of dotectives
and local ollicers have been endeavoriug
to solve the mystery connected
with the recent tragic death of Emily Sisley,
the bride of two days, at IMatteville, Wis.,
but without having made up to the present
time the slightest headway. The lady was
found dead on the second morning of her
marriage, on the premises of her mother-inlaw,
near the city of PJattevilJe, with four
bulled holes in her right side, one ball having
passed through a portion of the heart,
and the weapon with which the deed was
accomplished lying on her breast. Sisley,
his mother, and a Mr and Mrs. Hamilton,
living with the latter at the time of the
tragedy, are now in the CJrjint Qoi'rtjail,
having been held, after a lengthy examination,
on suspicion of having been concerned
in the affair. No tangible evidence,
however, has been adduced against them.

similar to that which will bo employed
at the statious has been erected at

1'his apparatus consists ot a long shed,,

sun and throws them horizontally into* n 1
ituiili frame house at the other end of the {
died, where the photograph is made. [
With the exception of this apparatus, I
which is simple and in to be erected by t
the parties upon their arrival at their ties* i
liriutions, no equipment or instrument ia c
needed. A small equatorial telescope will r
be taken along to observe the coutacts? I
the beginning and the end of the transit, c
The transit occurs on the Oth of Decern* 1
ber. It will bo made a study by nStrono* r
iners all over tho world. Congress appro* J
printed ?75,000 to equip the dull-rent par* v
ties, so that there will bo no lack of funds. I
Four of tho eight parties are to occupy sta* J
lions in this country, which will be at r
Washington; Cedar Keys, Florida; San ii
Antonia, Texas, aud Furt Thorne, New t
Mexico. There will be four foreign sta* c
lions, namely: Cape of Good Hope; Santa

While there is greijt interest manifested el

isked by the unscientific mind why so
nuch interest is attached to this phenoinmou.
Transits, eclipses and other phelomena
are continually occurring .without h
.uy particular interest being attached to ir
hem. The reason is that Venus affords ti
he best meuus of mastering a problem ji
vhich is one of the most important within ti
he whole range of astronomy?-the distance if
?f the sun from.the earth. "As the orbit of y
fenus is nearly on the &ime plane (t$ the m
