A Kentucky man, over eighty years of

It is sadly possible that among the failures

??? I
1 Washington, D. 0., Jan. 2.?Cleve- 1
land's idea of civil service reform, as pub,
Jished in his letter to George. William
Curtis, has stired the old-time Democrats 1
of the District into wonderful, activity. 1
Already thoy are busy preparing lists of '
office-holders in the departments whom (
, they deem "offensive partisans," and tliey ^
proposo to have ready by the 4th of 1
March the political record of onough '
clerks. for removal to make plenty of 1
room for themselves. Some of the older 8
patriots engaged in this important Demo* J
cratic duty,Are, it is true, scarcely able to
write what they proposo shall be used as J
charges, but there are plenty of young- '
sters anxious to act as their amanuenses, j
and tho work will not halt for the want t>L \
willing hands. t
llepublican' neighbors whoso constant fl
emolovment and Drosnerity have been an .
aggregation for many years to their less J
fortunate Democratic acquaintances, are p
now to bo mado to feel the change for u
which the President-elect's letter marks s
out the way. There is no concealment of b
tho elation which has been created by the v
document among these Mossbacks. In o
their pverilow of spirits thoy take no pains ii
to hide their intentions, and Republicans n
who have the honor of being on speaking n
terms with these good-natured citizens are .N
frankly told they must go. c
In the feeling of resentment which such c
information naturally creates, the poor Ke- i!
publictfrr-u]mrtisan8r' yenture to suggest ii
meekly that there are other Democrats in u
the country besides those in the District, o
and they call attention to tho fact thrft,the
latter having co votes,' their chances are ii
very poor for preferment. Such remarks si
are attributed to spite-work on the part of n
the doomed creatures, and excused accord- tl
ingly. but the thought that others may it
step in ahead and reap the benefit of the si
labors of the District patriots makesan un- e
comfortable chilliness crawl down the n
Democratic spine at the mere possibility <1
of such a calamity. p
Being on the ground and having the g
offices preempted, as it were, it would be
an outrage, they argue to themselves, to
bo compelled to give way to outsiders who
have never experienced the tortures of r
Tantalus by being chained here in sight of .
tho ofUcial food for which they have hun- '
gored for years. Besides, the removals to s
Ik? mado will be the result of district work, ti
based* on a personal knowledge of the
"offensive partisanship" which certain department
office holders have been gnilty ?
of, and the outside brethren will recog- I<
nize the fact that in i\o other way could ?
the changes be made. Reasoning thus,
and trusting to political intluence which is e
always at hand if needed, this work of \
spotting partisans will go on. t(

orders to remove their shop to Columbia

One reason for the removal is that the

entire works to C61umbus, only doing repairing
on a small scale here. The inontliI

that the bark was in a dense fog

was considerable out of her course. Saturtliy
afternoon the fog lifted and the
(feather cleared. During the maU'g
watch about 4 o'clock the vessel shook
from- stem to stern. She had stranded,
md the wind was blowing and the sea
fanning very high. In a moment the
Lena was well upon the bar, the waves

;hose on board exceedingly perilous. An
jflort to launch boats was a disastrous

Ihe'ship full twenty-four hours, their
kanda and feet benumbed and frost bitten,
frhen the vessel went to pieces and every

leaves. The two survivors, Anders Isakens

the volume of sales in these branches i

LONG STRIKE ENDED.
Hooking Valley Mliteni Itcturulng to Work
la Small Group*.
Nblbonville, O., Jan. 2.?'The past twenty-four
hours have not been productive ol
important mining news. The gains thai
will bo made in the working. forces ol
home miners will be accomplished by
email daily additions. It is possible that
the miners as a bodv mnv never take ne.
t:on with a view to begin work. A rumor
has been started among the miners that
arrangements would be made to furnish
ali with employment at good wages in another
locality, where new mines arc said
to be opening, in case the strike was completely
lost and employment here became
impossible. The name or the new coal
field is not given, but the miners are mAde
to believe that the whole arrapgeinent is a
secret scheme gotten op for theif special
benefit. They are further tolilrfiat money
will be furnished them to move their
goods and families, and-that not a single
one ought to be anxious abont hjaJuturc.
Late last evening a rumor was circulated
that the miners employed by W.\P, Rend
would mine coal for 30 cents per ton if the
miners in this locality attempted to work
at 50 cents. No attention was paid to this
talk, as it is a well known fact that coal
miners are not anxious to work for amusement
or for the pleasure of someone else.
The Nelson ville jAfan to-day prints the
following on the present situation: "Last
Monday witnessed the first break in the
strike of any conseuuence. The men have
been dropping i?slowly for a month past,
but no considerable number went in until
Monday. 0. L. I'oston <fc Co. opened their
mine on that date and invited the old
miners to go in or stay out ever after,
when sixteen of them took their picks and
shovels and returned to work. Others
went to work in Brooks' and Johnson
Bros. ,and Patterson's mines. It is ditlicult
to learn the exact number, but there were
forty or fifty men altogether. With this
number of experienced miners at work,
tho output of coal will bo almost equal
to the demaud, and this virtually
ends the strike, though there are
many who have not given up tho fight
yet, and perhaps never will. There is
quite o diversity of opinion in regard to
tho effect of the reduction upon trade.
Some claim that business will never be as
sood again in the Valley as in the past.
while others claim mat tnu resumption ot
work will creato a boom, as all the mines
in the Valley will be enabled to start up,
together with one or two of the furnaces,
now that ibp price of mining has been rerlueed
to a legitimate competitive basis.
Time alone will prove the correctness of
one or the other of these theories. If
steady work is given the miners, and the
furnnces start up, together with the Standard
Coal and Iron Company, wo cannot
see any reason to doubt that there will be
us much money in circulation as before
the strike. It is true the miners will not
make as much per day as before, but there
will he more men employed, and consequently
more men to spend money. We
are passing through a season of idleness
and depression all over the country, and
the result of tho strike was inevitable.
After the lanse of the first four months of
the strike the fight was hopeless,Tut so
bitter had been the contest that the miners
were loth to give up, and rather than
submit eked out a kind of miserable existence,
subjecting themselves and families
to gre.it privations in order to subsist
upon the meager supplies dealt out to

miners and operators hare sustained incalculable
losses, extending (ar into the
nillions, to say nothing of the losses of
prlvati) individuals in the war of the (ailing
off in trade and general depression in
business that has hovered iu and about the
Vallay (or the past hall year. There is
hardly a family hero that has not beon
made to feel the effects of the dull
season. The churches have been unable
to keop up the salaries of their ministers,
the storekeepers to employ their usual
inotA of clerks, and man and maid servant
have been dispensed with in moro than
one household. The effects of the striko
will remain with us long after the contest
la over. It will Uko at least a year for
property to attain Its former price and
business to regain its usual activity. Thus
ends one of the longest strikes ever witnessed
in this country.
The Syndicate is making preparations
to begin operations at the Troy mines, in

2 FnftrtcnBcrA on the Train?Tlie Effects
r of the Shook?Boa^mir {shaken.
London, Jan. 2.?A dynamite explosion
occurrcd under the Grand railway between
Qower street and King's Oroes station at
i 9:30 this evening. The windows of the
1 passenger train were shattered and the
, gas light extinguished. Beyond this there
was no damage done. Tho passengers
were greatly terrified but no one was hurt.
The train resumed its journey after a de,
lay of twenty-five minutes.
London, Jan. 3,1 a. m.?Tho shock of
tho explosion was felt by tho residents of
Euston road between St. Pancras church
and-Judd stivet. The railway runs the
whole length of Euston road underneath
the roadway. A crowd speedily collected
at the vent shaft at the head of Ossulton
street, from which, at the time of the explosion,
a quantity of smoke issued. As
soon as possible a number of porters wero
sent to the spot with lamps and appliances
for clearing the lino. Up to the present
time nothing has been louqd. The residents
in the locality are greatly alarmed.
The shock overthrew several wayfarers.
On Euston'roaditwas with great difficulty
that horses wero restrained from run
mi it i ' ?
ana/, xuo gua ugnt jji uower street
station was extinguished. The ticket col*
lector at the station was thrown from his
box, and the engineer working the electric
light machinery, was thrown from his
seat three or four feet, landing on his face.
Lights in other trains in the tuunel were
extinguished. The passengers were greatly
alarmed and many ladies fainted. The
(tower street platform is literally strewn
with persons prostrated by the shock.
The houses in the vicinity were shaken
and the roadway oscillated. Two trains'
were passing at tlie time of the explosion,
and in both the lights were extinguished,
windows shattered and the framework of
several carriage doors smashed.
TheticketcoilectoratUowerstreetstation
describes the report of the explosion as
sharp and ringing in character like the
discharge of small field artillery. The point
where the explosion occurred is directly under
tho road leading to the London Northwestern
railroad station. A lady's nose
was cut by glass, one gentleman had tho
side of h)R face cut and rninitin* a
These are the only serious casualties reported.
All tho passengersl&ft tho train at
tho Gower street station, many of them
iu a half fainting condition.
Superintendent Williamson, of Scottland
Yard, and the superintendents and
inspectors of tho various districts, arrived
at Gower street station a half hour after
tho explosion and immediately proceeded
down too lino. They discovered a signal
box east of St. Pan eras church partly
wrecked. Tho signal wire was
cut and the clock was stopped at 9:12.
Inspection showed that tho explosive
material could not have been gunpowder,
and tho surrounding brickwork was not
blackened. It must, therefore, have been
dynamite or gun cotton. The locality is
on tho north side of the line, midway between
St. Pancraa Church and Charlton
Btrcct. Tho only, clews are a few fragments
of paper found about the truck.
At tho site of tho explosion there is a
hole in the solid mnsonary about four feet
from the ground with a diameter of-four
feet and depth of five or six inches. Tho
masonry is more or less damaged from
some eight feet all around the hole. Tho
effects of this explosion correspond exactly
with those of the explosion at the Praed
street Htation fourteen months ago. Trains
which met at the time and place of the
explosion wero fairly crowded with passengers.
The third class carriages sutTered
tt?o most Tho locomotives.of the two
trains wero not damaged. .
The signal man who had charge of the
wrecked signal box says tho floor of the
box was heaved up by the explosion and
ho was half stunned. Speedily ascertaining
tho signal apparatus was safe,
ho relit tho. gas and telegraphed up
and down tlie line. The fact of
the meeting of the two trains at
the place of the explosion is regarded as.
accidental. The belief is general that
some miscreant dropped the explosive
with a time fustwltached from an earlier
train proceeding to the city.
Near the spot the police found a man's
cap and some pieces of twine and some
burnt fragments of a rag.
