of the Secret Service Divis'on, la his annual
report to the Solicitor of the Treasury,
shows that during the last fiscal year 444
arrests were made by the operatives of
the Service, asuisted by local officers, a
large majority of which were for passing,
dealing in or manufacturing counterfeit
money. The amount of counterfeit money
capturcd was $305,508, mainly in Hash
notes. A large amount of plates, dies,
moulds and counterfeiting material was
seized and destroyed. The Chief of the
Division expresses the opinion that there

! The report says the counterfeiting of

on the State Department for a full statement
of our relatioi s with Germany and

the dispatch, that the President is determined
that the United States shall no

In the eveut of Germany and Austria ignoring
our protest it is believed that h
severane t of all diplomatic rdlaM mi with
those countries would rapid1)* bring
about a crisis. It is n?>t iliought
prohablj thtt the President will
mention the I r ouble in his mngPAve,
but he will make powerful suggestions
about the need of a new navy and the
alarming conditions of our co.ujt defences.

disruption of the moat powerful trade
union in tha world, and an oiigina
idea of conducting a strike by procurin;
the strikers employment in other oc;upa
tiona, are instances of what is found in
thorough investigation of the half-yea
strike a? completed yesterday by the Con
mercial Qatelic.
To the growing uso of steel in iron mill
and the consequent effect on puddling
both as to the amount of work and rate c
wage.", can be traced the beginning of thi
strike. Where once the puddlers wer
accustomed to rule things with prowee
and to largely control any mill, now tliei
occupation is paitially gone and their in
tiuence is on the vane. The fntroductioi
of steel not only interfered with their wor
in the past, but it also prevented an
prevents an increase in the future in th
amount of work to bo done. Too late th
puddlers saw the error of ever psrmittin,
the introduction of steel, for instead of
competition limited to themselves, an ope;
field and no favors stared them in the fact
FIGHTING AN INNOVATION.
The iron rail business instances the el
feet on this class of labor. Thousands c
puddlers in iron used to be employee
now there aro none, and in place of iro
one'and a half million of toos of steel rail
are annually made, and the puddlers wh
once found employment in this class o
manufacture have now drifted into othe
trades and other work. In tine sheet mill
a great part of the oqtput is now steel
tfathinfrry-rods and axles, once made c
iron, are now manufactured from steo
and from these manufactories too, th
ruddier has been crowded to tho wal
kaiiH and girders are now made of stee
and the puddlers snfl'er again.
But the puddlers were determined n(
to die without a struggle. After permit
ting the establishment of steel on a flri
fooling they began the fight. All labc
contracts for several years back have bee
based on the price for working steel i
iron mills. The puddlers had aroused i
last, and they fought vigorously and har<
They demanded that an extra pric
should he paid for the working of iro
into steel after jt had passed through tl
forge. They argued that the manufactui
u t?? i.nn iol
era womu nun umi uiwIU uwu
steel. But the manufacturers saw anothe
way out of the difficulty, and demandc
the puddlers to rcduce the price of pu<
dlinp; only in that way, they claitnei
could they postpone the evil day. Th
lines were drawn and sharply defined.
The settlement of the big strike in 18f
was not satisfactory to the Wheeling ope
ators. They objected to several articles i
the settlement, but to none more than b
ing obliged to pay the twenty-five cent
extra for boiling. They were mad an
swore they would get even yet. Cincii
nati and St. LouiB once paid an extra
fifty cents for boiling, but that was r
, moved, and Wheeling alone was left pa;
ing higher wages than any other manufa
turingtown. Thiy promised to see to
and tneykept their promise. They a
gettiug oven now and feel happy over i
HOW THE THREAT WAS EXECUTED.
The threat was not an idlo one. Thi
did not waste time in considering wh
should be done. Neither did they dels
; their action as the puddlers had done,
meeting of tho Wheeling manufacture
was quietly held. They appointed a coc
mittee to investigate the making of ste
' nails. The committee went uw over n
, country, they bud experiments uum
under their suporvUiou and they can
' bsck aecuro in the knowledge that thi
poeaeeeed the secret, which, skilful
> handled, would bring the puddlers
" tUeir knees and show the industrial wor
1 that while West Virginia is a small Sea
' and Wheeling a small city, neither t!
State nor city capitalists could bj trie
