Squirk Buchanan is a good man to lil

Mrs. Blaine was not at tho Whiti

seem to have occurred to the gossips tha
Mrs. Blaine may have preferred to remaii

? Superintendent Butcix deserves tho sub

and successful educator and has dom
splendid work for the public schools 0
Wheeling.
Mr. Evarts may not be elected Senato

Conkling,on the other hand, is the sort o
man whoso attention ought never to b

The Princess Beatrice is having a rougl
timo of it for a Itoyal Highness. After i
life of royal monotony with her royal an<
imperial mamma, she is to marry aGermai
Prince, and both of them are to be unde
mamma's eye. Since it isn't a lovo matcl
porlmps tho young peoplo won't care
But the English ppople may be pardonci
for looking on tho whole business witl
unfriendly eye, for it is to add $30,000i
year to their burdens. Tho Queon is i
very ricli woman, but she has never beoi
fond of spending her money. She prefer
to lot her subjects spend theirs.
In Savannah tho Western Ujiion Tele
graph Company has been having a tini
with its messenger boys. During 1384 th
company employed 150 boys, and tho;
avoraged a month each in tho company'
service. AVhilo they did work they gav
a great deal of troublo and little satisfac
tion. Now colored boys haVfe been cm
# ployed. They get the same wages and ar
doing their work well. It is to bo hopei
that they may continuo to doservo com
inundation. There eecms to bo soinethin
in tho nature of the service which undei

Perhaps the colored boys are proof again?
that something, whatever it may bo.

Tho Slar has never been a paying pit

The Western stylo of journalism has buil
up tho New York World, long a "deac

of profit into the Star. Tho salo of hi
newspaper is further corroboration of th
statement that John Kelly is passing on

Tub administration shows a greater di
siro to mako it appear that it did all
could to holp Blaine than itshowedjto he!
him when help was needed. In its ofloi
to show to good advantage it throws or
the silly suggestion that the National Con

was a timo in the whole campaign whe
the National Committeo would not ha\
appreciated anything on tiie part of tii
administration that would have looke
like a desire for the election of Blalno.

- selves by holding on to the ice. which
P continually broke from their weight.
/ A large crowd gathered on both shores, I
" but were unable to render any assist* <
ance as the ice was too insecure to sun port i
any considerable weight. Finally, Chris- I
tiau Kohrer secured a boat, and cutting a

a struggling party and rescued them, the
young women being in an almost uncony

OHIO LEGISLATURE.
The Unfinished Work that the Kolons will
Iluve to Wrestle With.
Colcmbc-8, 0., Jan. 5.?The legislative
solons are beginning to gather from all
parts of the State for their annual circus,
which meets in adjourned session tomorrow.
A huge calendar of unfinished business
confronts them upou tho very threshold
of the now session, in which there is
business enongh to keep them busy, if
properly attended to, until long after the
daisies bloom in the coming spring. Thero
are ninety-four Senate bills pending in the
Senate, besides thirty-one liouso bills.
In addition to this, there are nine
Senate joint resolutions, five House joint
resolutions,and tltree Seuato resolutions
to be disposed of. In the House the prospect
is even more flattering. Two hundred
and twenty-four House bills demand
attention, while there ure on tho liouso
calendar twenty-six Senate bills, twentyone
.Senate joint resolutions, eight House
joint resolutions, and thirteen House
resolutions. Among tho important and
novel measures and resolutions pending
in the two Houses we recall a few to show ,
the probable bent of Legislative action
during the coming session. Senate bill
No. 83 is "to establish a State asylum for
the care of inebriates." Senate bill No.
124, "to facilitate the conversion of toll <
roads into free roads." While many toll
roads have been converted into free pikes .
by special.acts of tho Legislature this bill
is intended as a general measure, and to 1
effect all toll roads. Senate bill No. 145 is i
"to regulate the rental allowed for tho use ;
of telephones. This is a measure aimed at ,
the monopoly enioyed by the telephone
companies. Bill No. 1UG is to license deal- J
era in railroad tickets, and is intended to
protect the traveling public from the J
swindles of unprincipled scalnere. Senate ,
bill No. 211 is to require physicians and !
druggists in writing prescriptions to use
Ihe common and best known English 1
term for the medicine used. The bill is {
in the interest of common sense, and will
havp a tendency to lessen the number of
L'oroners' inquests caused by the mistakes '
of drug clerks. ,
. .1.- rr t-Mi is ii._ I
.wiiuug uiu tiuuau uiuspciiuiug in me
>enato is one to aid in tho better collection
of taxes on personal property and tho <
regulation of safe deposit companies, trust I
companies, and banks receiving special
deposits.
douse bill No'. 190, "to prevent gambling
in grain, stocks, petroleum and provisions
is a stock measure, and evidently intended
for "buncome."
House bill No. 247 "to confer appellate
and other jurisdiction upon the Circuit
Court," is intended to supplement tho
recent judicial amendment to tho Constitution."
Aiuong the Senate joint resolutions is
oue in reference to the tariff on wool, calling
upon Ohio Congressmen to support
the Converse taritf bill. Several bills and
resolutions looking toward the encouragement
of forestry culture are also on the
lailendar. Senate joint resolution No. 23,
by Mr. Elliott, relative to submitting tho
jrade license umendment, is likely to be
rilB TKMl'KUANCE FEATL'Jtlt OF THE SESSION.
The fate of the two parties in Ohio !
probably rest upon the disposition of this *
measure, and it will undoubtedly provoke
more discussion than nuy other bill pond*
ng before the Legislature this winter.
Kesolution No. 09, relative to offering a
reward for tho arrest of tho murderers of
Uaptain John Desmond, was introduced
jy Mr. Crowell, but emanated from Governor
Hoadly. IIouso bill No. 04 is to restrict
the sale of liquors within 1,200 feet
if niw? nnblic firhnnl lmiUliiirr. Ilnnm
bill No. 057, "to provide against prefer- t
ment of creditors by an insolvent credi- 1
tor" is intended to cut oir tho preierred
claims of the "uncles, the cousins, and the
luuta" of tho baukrupts. It is perhaps
the ono bad feature of the bankrupt law,
and this remedial amendment should be
passed. House bill No. 100, "to compel
the taxation of real estate of railroads and
corporations the same as tho real estate Of
private individuals."
House bill No. 149, providing for the
'prompt payment of tho wages ol^abor,"
limits a day's work in any mechanical or
manufacturing business, where the contract
is silent, to eight hours, und that the
person employed shall, if not paid within
fifteen days, have a lien on any article
that his labor shall have helped to proJuce.
Mr. Brunner'B House bill No. 100, "to
regulate the errors of medical colleges, to
prevent mistakes in diaguosing disease, to
:rush out egotistical ignorance, and to
reward truth, justice and right, and to add
healthful vears to thousands of suffering
sitizens of Ohio, and for other purposes,"
explains itself.
Perhaps the measure that will provoke
the bitterest tight is House bill No. 544,
by Mr. Poe, "to provide /or tho publication
of school text books, aud making appropriations
therefor." Already the
schbol-book ring are in the Held to fight
this ruca uro if it is passed, or to put up a
job of their own, if they see tho opportunity
to do so safely.

Nbw York, Jan. 5.?Judge Cowing, in

Sourt of General Sessions, said: "I have t
jeen informed that your predecessors had ]
)egun investigation in regard to the cor- t
uption in public life which has not been 1
Inished, and it is your duty to complete j
t. If any official, be he high or low, has (
prostituted his office, he desorves to be'
Drought before this bar. It is an easy
natter to grab the street urchin, but his
jflenso is light compared to that '
)( a pilblic official who is the 1
servant of'the people in this city, and s
not their master when he commits a i
jreach of trust. I hope the rumors of f
corruption aro untrue, but if any official t
lias been bribed, if it is as common as
lomo peoplo think in certain localities,
if franchises and offices have been put up
iml sold then an example should be made.
Vou are entitled to subpojna anybody and <
jveryhndy in these matters. Suchwitnes- "
ies will have to testify and cannot refuse

Pittsburgh, Jan. 5.?News, alleged,
ami-alleged and reliable, telegraphic and
>caj, relative to the transition state of the
ibor market still continues to bo upper
lost every day of the week. The latt
ivo months of 1884 were notable for the
umerous reductions in wages; tho begining
of 1885 seems to bo changing from
lis somewhat, and including in its reorts
of rearrangement of the terms of
ibor. Hitherto all dispatches, rumors,
tc., bearing on wages in the iron and steel
lills, have contained a clause in favor of
io Amalgamated Association, the memera
of which, working as tliey do under a
early agreement, have been protected from
tie general reductions that have affected all
ther classes of labor in iron and steel.
Hth the close of tho year, however, the
sales in tho Bessemer plants expired by
mitation, and the new scales for tha year
ould have been submitted in time for
jttlement upon the 1st of January, had
usiness been good. But as' business was
l low ebb there was no hurry, and there
roroised to bo tardv arm moments; moro
specially in the rail departments. Other
:eel mills and the iron mills scale scheule8
do not expire until the close of tho
ist day in May of each year. The exuiition

AN UNRELIAULK DISPATCH.
"Ilere te a-dispatch-Tr6Hf Chicago," relarkcd
Secretary Martin, of tho Amalgamtcd
Association, in his most indignant
mo, "published in the "morning papers,
ating that our association men have
lado arrangements to go to work at the
ay View mill of the North Chicago Coinany
at lower rates than the scales call for,
ad that they havo done this without coniltation
with the goneral office of tho
rganizatioii. Tho report is simply a baro.ced
lie; thore are no firmer men in the
isociation than those at Bay View."
"Could they havo done this without
on knowing of it?"
"Not a bit of it; if anything of the kind
Ml been in tho wind this office would
ave been informed promptly. We have
scent news from Bay View and everyling
is as usual there. That pntea disitch
is ialse from beginning to end."
AN AMALGAMATION SCALE SIGNED.
The new scale for tho Bessemer plants
lay delayed for some time, owing to the
ct that many of them are in no hurry to
art up. The Pittsburgh Bessemer at
[oraestead will be tho first to commence
^orations on new rates. It has been for
lonths runuing the blowing, department
a orders for billets, which are used by
ttlinip mi fin fnr tlm innnnfnH urn nf n vn.
ety of articles. Since the majority in>rest
of tho plant was purchased by
arnegio Brothers & Co.. limited, it has
aen doing very little in tho rail mill, the
itention being to concentrato rail rolling
; tho Kdgar Thomson works, leaving
tllet making to the smaller estahlishicnt,
and replacing its rail mill with a
aiu for the rollingof architectural shapes,
ast spring there was six weeks' run on
lils at Homestead, which about closed
it its short life as a'rail producer, except
shall be of light sections that are not
psirable food for the big maw of the Edir
Thomson machinery.
The notice of reduction posted last
lontli at the Pittsburgh Bessemer was for
! percent in tho rail, 15 in the blooming
id 12 percent in the converting dopartlents.
Labor outsido of these departlents,
being unskilled, was Teduced 10
ercent It was understood that all the
orkmcn except the Amalgamated men,
included soon after the notice to accept
le cut. Tho latter being slightly in tho
lajorityit becamo an interesting queson
what they would do, but as there wero
d rail men to be affected the elimination
[ the highest figure of reduction, 33 nerjnt,
was regarded as removing a serious
lmnlfrntinn.
"will the Homestead men go to work ?"
as afilccd Secretary Martin this morning.
"They will; tho scale is arranged for the
car, and the mill will start up on to-mor>w
or next day. The Association accept1
the reductions proposed."
"What effect #ill this have on other
cssemer mills in the Association ?"
"It should'-have no particular effect ex>pt
as to the blooming and converting
apartments, where the reduction is 15
id 12 percent respectively. Tho rail reaction
did not enter into our consideraon
of tho matter, inasmuch as tho Pittsurgh
Bessemer lias not for some time
sen regardod as a rail mill."
