of the finest gray American granite manufactured.
' This tirm has also in completion several
other large monuments for this and

Auorlatlsa'a Miaibrri-Kipcetatloaa
of Son* Kind of a CoIUpir,
The auppowil climax in the irou lockout
and the possible outcome of an attempt U
Mart ohe or two of the mills al the old price*
and, if necessary, with nun-union workmen
was the absorbing topic of conversation ii
tlie city yesterday, not only where knots o
idle workmen assembled or among the inter
eated mill owners, but among all classes o
iieople everywhere. Uo Into a grocery am
the women were discussing the situation am
quoting what their husbands say; go into i
cigar store or a saloon nnd the proprleto
would at once spring the inquiry, "Jh then
anything new about the mills?" Still, wltl
all the talk, there was
notiuno new developed
yesterday.in regard to the Intentions or plan:
of the l?ullello and Belialre mills, the tw<
which aru generally believed to be prepariti)
for an early resumption.
A reporter opproaciied President McCourt
uey, of the Belialre mill, on the street am
that gentleman did not hesitate tostate, tha
lie was not at all overjoyed at being stoppei
by the questioner. '1 he question was aiket
it bedtslred to say anything on the preset!
status of the iron outlook, the Belialre mill o;
the article in yestetday's Intelligencer, Be
/ore the question was entirely finished Jh
wild "I know nothing that I care to say any
thing hi out," and looking at the reporte:
with a chilling gaie ho added, "When yui
get anything out of me, just let .mo know
will you?" The searcher after inforniatiot
solemnly promised that he would and de
parted.
Soveral other manufacturers were inter
viewed, but the only expressions of sufllclen
Interest to justify their publication wen
heard in a
conversation with mr. 11 earns,
in conversation with Hon. \\\ L. llearno. o
the IHvtrside Works, wlioattended the Man
ufacturers' meeting at Pittsburgh on Mon
day, lie said Hie strike wan looked upon U]
there us virtually ended,and that now it wa
only a question as to terms of agreement
such as the existence of the "Mill Commit
tee" of the Association, &c. It was knowi
that a portion of the men were anxious ti
resume work, and that delegates from tin
West had been in Pittsburgh (bringing sonn
money along with them) electioneering witl
them to hold out. The Mt. Hickory Works
at Erie, had gone to work at $3 25 for boil
ing, and this fact had had its effect in Pitta
burgh.
Mr. Hearne was asked whether it was tra
that the manufacturers had Hgtiitleu a will
ingness to sign tiie oid scale for a year. II
said it was not true; that they had not conn
to any understanding on that itoint; they liai
formulated nothing, find much less made an;
overtures of any sort. They were waiting fo
events, feeling sure that a denouement was nea
at hand.
lie was further asked whether the, Wheel
ing mills would sign the old scale?that is
paying the extra quarter for boiling ovei
Pittsburgh. He replied that he could apeal
for the itiverside and he believed for ever]
mill in Wheeling, when he said that the;
would not. They would insist on the Pitts
burgh scale clear through. These were tbi
Cincinnati termsuand why should they no
be the Wheeling terms? They intended nov
to come in on an equality witb other mills.
According to the JJellaire Independent o
last evening the project of startiugthe mil
there has been
ABANDONED FOR THE HIKSE.1T.
That paper has the following paragraph:
"There is quite a different tune to-day a
regards the starting of the Bellaire mill. Yes
terday some of the folks were excited mon
or less over tbo matter, and thought that tbt
mill would really start up with only a fev
workmen, a"d try to till in as they wen
along. Others were calm, cool and confiden
that nothing would be done. A nailer or tw<
wbo had intended to go to work if the mil
started, were feeling round yesterday fo
feeders, but they were scarce, and the proiec
of starting the mill on the terms pro
nosed was discouraged, and now wi
learn it has been abandoned. Presi
dent McCourtney said this mornini
that they would just-drop the matter for tlx
w.wvih, uiiu men ur worn away. his be
lievetl there is to be a meeting of the rnanu
facturers, and that tho matter is to be dis
cussed, and, probably, sonic terms of com
promise effected. From what bus been dent
onstrated by the feeler and -the general out
look in these part?, it seems-practically im
pobsible to start the mills without signing ib<
scale, unless the men surrender, and they d(
not Jecm likely to do so. As the 1st of Septem
ber draws near we may look for new and tier
haps agreeable surprises in the iron situation
The manufacturers, it seems, want to star
up.1'
A reporter yesterday piet Mr. Ed. Rogers
late Vice President for this district of tin
Amalgamated Association, and asked bin
how the current rumors and discussion, wa
viewed
FROM THE WORKMEN'S SIU&
"It certainly looks," he replied,''as if th
mill owners are more anxious to start thai
the employes. And there is one fact I wan
to call your attention to. Tho manufacturer
are constantly referring to the mills in ojier
ation at tho old wanes, as a sjgn of weakne*
in the Associatjon. But tp my mintl th
number of millff tb^t have sighed th
bcale, or gone to wprjf uufler ai
agreement to do so wlien t|ie othp
manufacturers doso, and the increase to dfit
from the time of resuming work, sSiowsweak
ness on their side. J lonestlv and frankly,
believe the members of tho Association are a
determined to-day as they were lastJune.om
just about as hopeful. The state of the nai
trade demands that the nillls here start up
or enforces them to remain idle at an enorm
ous sacrifice. I think this attempt to forci
a break will show who is the strongest it
their position. No mill that has started u{
with non-union workmen has been a success
Hut new milts are getting ready to goinU
operation, and already many old employe.1
of the Laughlin mill have gone to Cincinnati
to accept situations there. This nmkrs ihf
burden to be borne by the Association lighter,
and increases the number of contributors
We can stand it if the mill owners can."
Mr. Rogers was asked about the extri
quarter paid boilers in this district, and wha
tiie men thought of the determination ex;
pressed by manufacturers to have it deduct
ed. I{e saftl thpre $*ap nothing the boilers
would so tlrmly unite upon ofso persist*}!!])
oppose as this concession. This cents pel
ton for boiling in nddition to Pittsburg!
prices has been paid for a quarter of a century,
and there are many reasons that il
should continue to*be paid. One of these fc
that the greater percentage of sulphur in
our cofll fjiajces it necessary to clean
the bars ofteppr and this ;is very la
boriouw work. The tjoilprg hefe. have
two helpers, called the helper and tjic
third hand respectively, while at Pitts
burgh they have but one. Th's extra man
? i paid a.part of the boiler's wages. By his
aid the boiler is enabled to make more .ami
bctteriron, and in the extremely hot feason
be can stand the work of course much better.
JjooJcingatitin the light of these facts
it is a measnrp ftf cponqmy for the mill
owners to pay tho additional 2jj cepts, and
M r. Kogers saul the boilers would never al
low it to be deducted from their wages. He
also thought that tho only way in which tlx
mills could resume operations in thB near future
was by slgningibe scale.
T11K SITUATION AT HTTSIlUKOU.
PiTTsnunoH, August 29.?There was noth
ing in the iron situation to-day tochange the
opinion that the strike was nearing an eud.
The reported meeting of iron workers die
not take place, but those who are in a posi
tion to know, say that it will-bo held sonu
day this week. This morning Wilson, Walk
er A Co.'a mill started up one set ol
rolls, and with the aid of the boss puddlei
and Manager enough iron was turned out tc
last several days. The Uuion hammermen
are at work in the mill by leave of the Association,
and the fact that they did not refuse
to work the iron turned out by the
bosses is regarded as a creat concession.
Obituary,
The cntlro community ?'M very much
shocked yesterday morning, to heur of the
sudden death of Mrs. Louis C. titifel, the
esteemed wife of one of our most prominent
business men, which took place at her home
on North Main street about 10 o'clock. She
was sick only about a half hour before her
death,- and paevious to that time, was apparently
in the best of health. Mrs. Stiff!
was the daughter of Wnu Stamm, Esq , of
I he National road, and was in bur 37th year.
Mrs. Stifel was a lady of lovely deposition
and wan admired and loved by all who knew
her. Her loss is keenly felt by the family,
who idolized her; they have the heartfelt
sympathy of a host of sorrowful friends, both
in the city and surrounding country.

j At the City Building lust evening a re{
porter ran across the Council Committee [
i. on Finance and Boon discovered that it
* was preparing a report to Council recom-1
[ mending what appropriations should be
made for the various>avenues of expendit-1
[ lire for the year that has already been en1
tered upon. The ordinance provides that
there shall be submitted to Council on the
Btcond Tuesday in every June an estimate
of the needed monies for the ensuing fiscal
s year,andthatsaidestimatesshallatthattime i
" be acted upon, and an ordinance adopted
? appropriating the same. For some reason,
, known probably only to that wonderful
[ and mysterious body, the present Council,
l no such estimate has been preseuted by
) any committee except the one on Fire
I Department, which wants $25,000 for this
r year, but which it won't get, not by a
1 large majority. The result is, that the
* Finance Committee dccided to take the
2 matter its own bauds.
Accordinglv, it figured up the revenues
> as follows: Value of real estate north of
; the creek $7,645,001; south of tbe creek
. ?4,072,715; personal property north of
. wuta ;i),auu,oiUj DUUIU Ol CreCK 90i0,lTJ3;
. total $10,403,144. Oil this is a levy of 50
cents on the ?100 valuation, which brings
into the city coffers $82,015 72 from that
source. In addition there will be the 50
e cent head tax and the dog tax, which in
' round numbers will reach $5,000. Licenses
ure estimated at $35,000 and-from sundry,
other sources $3,000 will be acquired. Out
I of these resources there is estimated an expenditure
of $122,0S0, which counts in the
if various loans and all other departments
u eayethat of Streets, Alleys and Cjrades.
i That deducted from the revenues would
s ltave nearly $4,000 for the streets--where
now are Kimberly's arguments about how
the new Board would swallow up everye
thing?
1 It must further be understood that in
1 the revenues enumerated above, noaccount
is taken of fines, and wtiarf and market
fees which go to the Board of Control.
e In addition to these figures, the Finance
? Committee will recommend a levy of teu
i cents on the !$10Q valuation lieing made
p under section" ]0 of the jnco{*porae
tion of the cjty, wjiiph pro
vides that money go collected
E shall be used /or street purposes Thin
would net over $10,000 for the Board and
[ with its other revenues would allow it
about $35,000, which would do admirably.
Some puggestions as to the Fire Dejmrt.
ment will probably be made and the numi
berof citv assessors planed at one.. The
> report will be interesting.

Mr. A. K.-Jacobs left yesterday for

up the fair with farmers and stock men in

j here for exhibition. The intention of the
. stock committee, which is composed of
l Messrs. Le Movne, of Washington, Pa.,
- .Buchanan, of Wellsburg, and Jacobs, of
! this county, is to make the livestock dia:
play excel! anything in this line over seen
[ in this region. They will succeed in this
laudable plan.
[ Another lot of fish was put in the
aquarium yesterday. The aquarium will
. be something more than a mere attraction
this year. In addition to a large number
of rare and beautiful fish from abroad, it
will contain numerous lino specimens of 1
West Virginia fish, the most interesting 1
1 and worthy oLnote being a ntira.ber of 1

inglaose and in good condition for the table. <
Some jack fish, bass and turtles from nearer 1

This new feature is an admirable one, and '
the home fish will doubtless attract considerable
attention. ,

gave her name as Mrs. Nenon, and hernge
aa 70. Shu wan a paralytic, having lost tlio
use of all her limbs and w?* mmhl.i in

wagon contained u few goods, tho

she has been living with her daughter and

that availed nothing and the old lady was

and Bent to Mrs. Marow's, before whoso
house she was last flight. Tho old lad/,
who is of French extraction
and wo suspect has a pretty
sharp tongue, was very much frightened
and grew uiore so as the crowd increased.
Some wanted to break the door of the houso
down. Finally Mrs. Marow appeared and
took the old lady, her mother, in. Mrs. H.
said that about niue months ago .Mrs.
Foose told her that aho was going to bring
tho old lady down from Pittsburgh; that
she (Mrs. Marow) told her not to, as tlio
old lady was in tho hospital and evenlujillv
