Dbmocuatic papers in West Virginia that
characterize the Kiver and Harbor Bill as
a "steal," place Senators Davis and Camdun
and Congressmen Wilson, KOnna and
llogc,in a very unenviable light indeed before
the party and tho public. Inasmuch
am the Democratic party in West Virginia
Juts renominated JCenna and Hoge, nnd
-expect to ro-elect Senator II. G. Davis to
the Senate, despite their participation in
the alleged "steal," the consistency of this
ho'y horror cau be seen through without
this aid of a spy glass. If the West Virginia
members in tho Senate and House are participants
in a "steal," then everybody who
advocates their endorsement and re-eleeliott
i? aiding and abetting a steal. This
is all there is about it.

Mannikutox, Augtut 31.?This thriving
littlo town is ujlve to-day with representaUvea
of tho Democracy from Wetzel, Marion
and Marshall who tiro here lo nominate n
senatorial candidate to bo defeated hv tho
"Littleton shoemaker." Full delegations
of the Wetzel Democracy lire present, and
three of tho eundidnteH, T. N. Stone, A, G.
Culvert and W, N. Clayton arrived lust
night,'while K<1. McDonnell has a number
of active workers present.
The situation in this district is not no
favorable for the Democracy as they could
desire. Two years sinco the lion. .las. II.
F(urhee, of this place, was elected but
counted out, and the voters of the district, t
in a spirit of fairness, aro disposed to
resent that outrage. Then the tight for tho
nomination has been a bitter one, and it is
impossible to reconcile the differences.
]{ut the most discouraging feature
to them, is the fact that the probabilities
are that the Republicans will nominate an
exceptionably strongman in tho person
ofjD. M. IIoBtettler, and it is conceded that t
lie will bo "hard to beat" A startling rumor
prevailed this mornine that Lewis S.
Newman would bo present und demand
the, nomination, but beyond exciting the
candidates, it was looked upon as a canard. 0
Uather more than tho usual amount of (|
button-holing was done, but it was difllcult n
to predicate tho result. p
About noon Hon. Joseph Gallagher and j,
Hon. Lewis Gewman, of Marshall, ar- q
rived, and it was soon apparent that it was a
with them, "anybody to heat" McDonnell, c
whom they charged with being the ean- o
didateof Henry G. Davis and the railroad
monopolies. o
The convention was called to order by a
"Steen" Thompson, of Marshall, who P
named Joseph Ijallagher as temporary S(
chairman, and \V. S. llaymond as secre- u
tary. The temporary organization was t(
afterwards made the permanent one. ^
The usual committees were appointed y
and a recess taken. When the convention
came together again the Committee on
liesnlutionB reported, the first of which v
we give as a specimen of advanced Democratic
ideas: j
"We, the Democrats of the Second Sen- ,
i atoriul district, in convention assembled, ^
renew our pledges of devotion to the eter- C(
nal principles of liepublican liberty and q
local self-government, and hereby reaffirm tj
our devotion to the principles emauated by &l
Thomas Jefferson." '
We pledge our course in future as it has ^
been in the past, to use our efforts to ad- j,
vance the cause of popular education. tl
We look with alarm upon the growing si
power of monied monopolies, aud believe ^
in tho right of the Slate to correct or con- t|
Itrol their intercourse with the people A
thereof. . ^
Believing in the right of petition we are 11
in favor of submitting the question of prohibition
to the people for their ratification
or rejection. e
Being the friends of labor and the labor- t?
ing man we believe in such adjustment of n
the tariff as will bring the most money ti
into the national coffers to the end that ii
eur tariff, like tho dews of heaven, shall J?
fall equally on the heads of all. J
After the adoption of the resolutions the 0
names ui iv. a. AlcJJonnell and A. ti. Ual- e
vert were placed in nomination and a 11
ballot taken. The first ballot failed to bring Sl
a nomination. The second ballot was fl
taken, and Calvert was nominated.

route trial tJjiB morning, Mr. ilenkle, ot 11
tho couuscl for tiie defense, proceeded with Jhis
argument. Before addre^ing the jury j,
he called the attention of tho Court to th* j
Bcheine of tho indictment. The Govern- J
incnt had concedcd that the branch of con- I
spiracy, which in tho indictment had been J
attributed to Turner, was not sustained by
the proof, and ho argued that Turner and
Turner's performances was necewnrily a
part of the scheme, and that if the case 'I
had failed as to him it had failed as to all, C
He gave notico that he would present a 11
prayer to that ellVct.
Mr. Ifenkte nrguerf Jhat Turner was as ^
essential a part of the scheme of jfldictinent v
us Bradv, f
The Court?I do not see that. }'
JJr. Ilenkle said he did not contend that ,!
the indictment might not have been framed j?
leaving out Turner completely, but accord- "
ing to tho ponding Indictment, when the 81
counsel for tho Government Bftid "ggit
Turner," tho law said "exeunt omncs."
Mr. Ilenkle then \)^'?n his address to tho
Jurv. o
The Court inquired whether Mr. Ilenkle (\
was not a little premature jn making his
argument. No nolle pros liad b^ej) .en- r

Interview! with llrown, Uuunell A Co.
Concerning AITuIr* At Younptowu.'
I'rrroiiuuaii, August 31 .-The atmosphere
about the city to-day contained the uannl
largo percentage of rumors regarding affairs
in tho iron strike. Tho groups of iron
workers about the post o/lleo awl adjacent
corners included a greater number of puddlers
than is generally lite case, ami tho
rumor that this branch of the workers
would hold a meeting during tho tiny was
set afloat. It was us promptly denied at
the Amalgamated headquarters, and there 1
the matter rested.
Inquiry at tho ofHco of tho Iron Aesocia* ;
Hon developed tho fact that Secretary
Weeks was in Cleveland, in attendance ;
Mj.w.i u */. w.u i?..u vviuiaLaxv..,
This was substantiated Inter by the receipt
of the following dispatch over Mr. Weeks's
signature:
"Ct.KVKMSv, Aupnat 31.
"Tho Britton Iron ami Steel Works, of
this city, started* their mills thin roornimr
with non-union men. No Mill Committee.!
These works wmke sheet iron and lniyo 1
seven middling furnaces. Just what is
meant by the mill committee sentence is
not so clear as non-union labor implies an '
absence of the obnoxious couimitteev
A brief call was'ihade at the mrtin offices '
of the Society for the Improvement of the
Poor. Mrs. Lipniucott's usual place was
found occupied for the time by Miss WjW
marth, the lady generally in charge of the
South Side branch of the Society. In an- 1
swer to questions regarding the efleet of \
the iron strike ou the Society's labors on
tue South Side, that lady said :
"Our labor has about doubled on the
South Side and in some parts of this city 1
as well, since the strike began. Many 1
worthy women who can maintain their 1
families by washing for iron workers now 1
find their only means of support gone, '
This washing is now done in ithe iron j
workers' families. One hard working wo- ,
man who had washed for the same house- 1
hold for live years is idle, and is on tiie !
list for relief. Others who managed-to
uj> uy uuuiuiuu tiiu ttUiKcrfl in mum,
tinu this source ol revenue gone. Ami
there is nlso an increase in want in laborers'
families, men who usually Hud plenty'
to do in the iron mills ' There is a great
deal of distress consequent upon the strike,
and I do sincerely hope it will be over
soon. At the same time there is a falling
otl* in contributions this summer, and L
can assign no other cause than the strike."
The strikers still vigorously deny all intention
of holding a district meeting in the
near future, and are very indignant at the
various statements that have been given to
the papers recently. "You fellows are doing
us a great deal of liarni," said an iron
worker to the reporter this evening. "All
societies have traitors in their ranks and
the Amalgamated Association is no exception
to.the rule. If the name was required
to appear with the statements made' by
some of these chaps who are so eager to
pour the story of liieir woes into the ears
of a reporter, they would not have a word
to say, for they know that they do not eonfine
themselves to the truth."
It is probable that no new move will be
taken until President Jarrett arrives, and
it is expected that be will put in an appearance
some time to-morrow.
The blooming department of Shoenbergcr's
mill was started this morning by the
manager, assisted bv a few men. It is '
stated that among the men who returned
to work at Wilson, Walker A Co.'a shops is
K: II. Jones, ex-vice president of tho Amal- 1
gainated Association. '
The strike of Witherow & Gordon, at
Newcastle, Pa., is causing- trouble here. ;
Tin's afternoon the Pittsburgh .Smelting 1
Company attempted to work oil' some (
patterns of the former firm when the employes,
who are union men, refused to do
the \york and the factory )yus closed down. <
At a late hour to-night it was learned
that the policy of running non-union men
would be tried in four mills in thtecity 1
liext Monday. The firms that have an- 1
aounccd their intention of doing Ibis are 1
Wilson, Walker & Co., Spang, Chalfant A (
Co., and Grnfl', Bennett A Co.'s mills. The j
combined mills employ over 1,000 men. v
Hereafter they will sign no scale, recognize *
no Association and pay the old scale of Jfrfj0 1
per ton for puddling. Tho nowa of the in- '
tended action of the managers has created j
a great deal of excitement. One lodge of t
the Amalgamated Association, composed f
of Wilson, Walker A Co's men have noti- 1
(led the general officers that if they are \
pot giyeri permission to return to work at ji
the old wages they will go in regardless of 1
the Association.
You,vgsto\vs, Augustyi.?.ctrike news is
eagerly sought after and hard to find. ,
Brown, Bonuell A Co. are doing nothing
in the way of starting the works. Manager c
Williams said to a reporter to-day that a
"from information received ten days ago y
the present condition of affairs was foreshadowed,
and from a desire to avoid the 1
trouble indent tp new ipen going'in. nmj
the necessity ot throwing the old employes j
out, involving loas of work and properly .
and tho breaking up of home and friendly J
associations, caused us to await the return- ?
ing good sense of tho men. To do this the J
men whom we had engaged are held in ?
readiness, under pay, awaiting the issue of
the present state of affairs."

Ni:w Yoiik, August !M.?A story, which c
rviulu like ii chapter trom one of Captaiu
Mnrryatt's nautical roumnecH, comes to A
this oily from the const of Central America
ill no odiclul report received by Messrs.
William .lex A Co., shipping merchants, of
Xo. IS JJeaver street. The steamer Mallard,
Captain Calloway, which arrived hero
yesterday morning from Corn Island and St
Belize, Honduras, consigned to Jex A Co., 1!
brought to llitt 11 rm a brief letter from w
their agent at ISIiso Vivldn, Nicaragua, giv- hi
ingthu burn outlines of the exciting expo- ri
rienees of a ecliooner owned by Jex <k Co. ai
in an encounter with a crew of Spanish y,
pirates. nj
The schooner Transit is ono of a number 11
of vessels owned liv Jex & Co.. imilmlmm! in fr
the Control and South American trade. st
Bho runs between various points on the w
Mosquito coast of Nicaragua, transporting ri
general merchandise, which is taken from ol
this country to Corn Island by. the steamer 11
Mallard. 'J'lio Tranvit is an American ves- tl
ael, a tine Bailer aud a very trim and yacht- SI
like craft, its the picture hanging in the y<
ollico ol her owners shows her to bev She In
is eomumn<M by Captain John Thompson. SI
an Amcricau mariner of .experience, and ui
has a crew consisting of two men aud u ti
cook. About the 1st of August the Transit tl
lay at anchor in the Hay of Graciaa-a-Dios, ui
the extreme northeastern point of Nieara- tl
gua. The schooner was awaiting the ar- In
rival of the steamer and lay three, miles ej
out from tlio town, but within the bar cf
across tlio mouth of the harbor. in
In the (lend of night and when the Cap. 01
tain was asleep in the cabin, and only one o\
man was on watch, Uie schooner was
silently boarded by six pirates, who had di
Btealthily approached the ship iu two ca* sn
noes, sheltered by the darkness.; The ma- w
raudors were armed to ihe teeth, "and, lmv- cl
ing taken the Transit by surprise, were ar
able to seize Captain Thompson and his w
three men, after a brief but desperate bt
struggle. The Captain and crew were gi
jagged and bound hand and foot, and the
pirates took full possession of their prize
tnd ransacked the ship from stem to stern.
The ship's company were thrown into tho '
iolif, and the pirates then hoisted sail and
jndeavoieil to make for the open sea,
cuowing that they could .not hopu to retain Tl
he capture if they did not quickly yet out U<
>ort before their daring <leed was discover- 0ll
id. 15ut the Captain of the pirate crew
lid not know the harbor and was unable ll(
.0 net tiie ship over the bar. After ma- cli
luitimiin.' in vain for some little time he ev
hreatencd Capt. Thompson with death un- n,
ess he piloted the vessel to sea. The Cap- .
aiu consented to do ao if he was released 111
rom the ropes whicli hound him hand and C<
oot, ami as he peremptorily refused to 3-.;
lomply on any other terms the pirate chief ';
.vas constrained the accept the condition .
Captain Thompson, was given the use 00
)f his limbs and navigated the i'rausit $1
)ver the bar and out to Sua. By this time ni
.he pirates thought themselves safe and th
ivere indiscreet enough to indulge liberally wi
in th& aguardiente, of which the ship's gC
lockers contained a plentiful supply. The
'iery stti/J was partaken of to excess by all ro
hands, and soon the pirates were in a con-, pc
Jition of almosL helpless drunkenness
Captain Thomas was not the man to let eti
;his golden -opportunity slip. Watching
liis chance he run below, cut the ropea di
which bound the captive crew, and with jj,
their help quickly attacked the pirate
band, subdued them and secured the <
ivhole six safely in irons. The course of
the ship was then altered-and she was
headed for Uluo Fields, JiSO miles below
'Iraeins-u-Dios, the nearest poiut. at which
here wasii United States consul. Arrived of
iiere the si* pirates were taken ashore and jn
surrendered (o t|je authorities, and Cap- Qf
ain Thompson returned to the port whence
!ie had been compelled to sail so ]>rema- co
urely and under such sinsational cireum- ce
dances. The pirates were Spaniards and je,
)f the most desperate character.

that tho wool growing interests wero iu ha:
danger from the removal of tho duty or Dj<

wero made by prominent sheep raisers, iu are
which they stated that they looked with 3

cided by an unanimous vote to select a \V?
repreaentativo of this great industry to up- ?!?.

is no reason for rivalry among urn

Wo feel authorized to assert, without the of '

present duties on unmanufactured wools pcc
ire not sufficient to accomplish the object

issert this opinion, viz: That if these duties II
ire to be changed they should be increased. jjjc
tt is well known that the existing tarifl on

at ion, especially of the lower grades, and ?JJJicnce
it is clear that a reduction of the
piesent duties will be ruinous to tbo
Vool growing interests of our i>e?ile,
and will , compel many now oil- Jot
jaget) in.tlie pursuit to turn their attention
:o other branches of agricultural industry. Tl
Against such results we desire to present this

ion the history of our past legislation af- T
fords conchmve evidence that the interests yeai
