A very largely attended meeting of representatives
of the nail-feeders now employed
in the factories of this city and
other places where the seventeen-cent
scale is in force, was held yesterday afternoon
in the hall of Nallieedera' Union "No.
1 in this city, fn the McLain block. The
object of the meeting was to take the preliminary
steps toward the organization of
a trades union of the same general character
as the United Nailers before its amalgamation
with tho Kellers' and Heaters'
Association. The organization is intended
to bo national in its scope. The work
of forming tho union was only started yesterday,
and the meeting adjourned to reftsaouiblo
in tho same placo next Sunday
afternoon to perfect the organization.
President Hill, of Union No. 1, said
la?? niirht that tho meatine was a fullv
representative one, and the prospects for
the organization of a national union wero
bright. The organization wilt naturally
be comparatively limited in its membership
and influence at tirst, but Mr, Hill
thinks it will grow rapidly, and beceme a
power in the nail trade.
Mr. A. It jckerliausen, the Bellaire coal
operator, make* the following proposition:
lie will give the ground for the erection
of a natt"ralll on hia premises, and agrees
to take stock in the mill amounting to the
value of all hi? properly excepting$15,000, i
which sum is a debt against the prern- I
iBes. The Bellaire Tribune, in speaking
of this offer, saya: "At a low estimate
thU prope ty is worth $50,000 and possesses
every advantage of location, besides
being underlaid with coal which is easy
of access. VV'e understand Mr. itociorhauscn
is correspon ling with nail men in
regard to this matter, and that it is by no
means improbable that ere long we will
have another nail mill."
Tho striking nailers of Pittsburgh have
received a communication from the Mayor
of (iallipolis, O., who says that he has
been authorized by E. Beta, a Councilman
of the town, to offer the nailers an advantageous
site of four acres and 125,000 in
money if they would locate their proposed
co-operative nail factory there. The
writer speaks of the many natural aud
other advantages of Gallipolis, of its river
and railroad interests, and expresses the
hope that the ofler will be carefully considered.

This will give employment to 120 men in

before spring, and it Is thought beet to
have it made now. The nail works com*

say they will probably do bo
Boon. .Several applications for machines
have been made. There is a rumor at

seeking employment elsewhere. Last
week a party of four or five went to Uantralia,

Mre. Caroline B.Bnell, of New York,
Corresponding Secretary of the National
W. C. T. U., who haa been engaged by tho
State W. C. T. U. for one month to talk
temperance in general and the W. 0. T.
U. work in particular to the people oi
Weat Virginia, arrived in the city Saturday.
That evening aho spoke at the
Fourth street M. K. church, yesterday
morning at the Chapline. Street M. ?.
church and again at the Fourth Street
church last evening. Each meeting was
attended by good-sized audiences and Mrs.
Buell's remarks wero listened to with
earnest attention.
In appearance Mrs. Buell is a modest,
unaesumiug little person, but what sho
says is said with so much vim and earnestness
that she is found at all times to interest
her hearers, no matter what their
sentiments may be upon the topics that
she speaks of.
Iler addresaes hero have been noticeably,
practical and logical, in addition to
being earnest. She makes a special point
on this: that the controversy between tho
people and the liquor traffic is a question
lor Christians, philanthropists, taxpayers,
business men, professional men, educators,
ministers and patriots. Abovo all, it
is pre-eminently a woman's question, and
on this she lavs great stress. Her style is
somewhat of a departure from that of the
average female temperance lecturer. Bhe
draws no awful picture of the evil effects
of tho liquor tratlic, but in a quiet, dispassionate
manner presents facts and figures,
and on these bases her appeals for reform.
I In speaking of the question as one for
the women of the land to be up in arms
about, she referred in a strong, forcible
way to the fact that it was woman who
was made to feel most keenly the effects
and disgrace of the business.
Like tho majority of temperance speakj
ere she was in favor of prohibition to tho
I fullest extent, and she cited many illustrations
designed to fortify her position in
i this respect. Bhe spoke of the "fallacious
objections" to prohibition; gave her
[explanation of the "vast difference
between 'civil liberty' and 'personal
liberty'"; pictured the shame of
I a nation where the saloon was the pioneer
of civilization, and closed with an
[eloquent prophecy of the time to come
when alcohol should be prostrate and
| helpless under the loot ol univeral l'rol
hibition. She gave at some length her
reasons for prohibition, as regards a perpetuity
ol a republican form of government.
She has made an unusually favorable
reputation here.
