Tuk railroad bridge acroea the Ohio,
ifonn at Point Pleasant, is at length compitted,
ami traina are now passing over.
Citt after city, throughout the country,
u abolishing the license tax on cominercial
drummers. Wheeling never imposed
such a tax.
Nails have dropped in Chicago to $2 7i
for Bteel and $'J 65 for iron, on account,
tho Timet gays, cf the falling off in demand
and the increasing supply.
Tut: Baltimore & Ohio telegraph company
have recsntly gained important advantages
over the WeBtern Union at Philadelphia
and at Little Rock, Ark.
Somehodv asked how much Vanderbilt
left, and the very suggestive reply was
.it iimt ho had." To this complexion all
wealth comefl at last in the hands of its
temporary loasttfaor.
Baltimuei & Ohio pasaenger rates to
Chicago from New York are $4 50 less
than by the Pennsylvania road. Trouble
between the lines is expected in consequence.
The Baltimore & Ohio refuses to
join the pool.
The lile of delinquent lands by the Sheriff lu

ItecetuH etrtnge that even a "few tracts"
uf land in auch a county as Brooke should
be advertised for sale for taxes. Is it
really true, as we have lately heard, that
not a few farmers in Brooke have gone
behind of late ?
Kr/Mi nnwH items as the following are
aigniiijant of the changes .that are going
on in the religious world:
Dsn Moi.vra, Iowa, Dec. 7.?L Freudenthal,
the new pastor of the Jewish
uynagogue, who came here three weeks
ago from Petersburg, Vs., was introduced
to day by Kev. George C Henrjr and receceived
by the Ministerial association,
the members rising.
At the regular weekly meeting of the
Methodist ministers of Chicago on Monday
last, Hot. K. W. Bland stated that one
church in the city contained in its bosom
u club which meets throe times a week
/or dancing, euchre and billiards. Ho declared
that God once chastened Chicago
with Ore for its ungodliness, and another
calamity might be expected.
John 8winion, of New York, editor of
tho well known paper devoted to labor reform,
was asked the other day what ho
thought would be accomplished by workiogme.n
in the next decade. He replied
ai follows:
"They will lay the foundations of the
system by which labor will rule the world.
They will perfect their unions, local,
national and international; they will
secure better wages and fewer hours of
work, and they will begin to regulate the
output in tho various trades. They will
also make a beginning in that universal
co-operation by which labor shall become
the owner of the machinery it operates."
A gentleman who arrived in Wheeling
a day or two eince from' New Orloans says
that things.'are in a bad condition there.
The cotton business of the city is seriously 1
endangered by excessive expenses, and
the disposition of planters is to sell direct
to buyers at their plantations, as the old
sugar planters used to do, or else ship to
the North. In other respects also New
< irlaan* in in a bad wav as mav be inferred
froui the following extract from a report
uia<le by a grand jury a few days flince:
"With hoodlumiam rampant throughout
every portion of the city by day, and
burglars plying their avocation by night,
the city ia in a deplorable condition, and
everv citizen's house is liable to be entered
any hour of the night or day, his family
insulted and house robbed unless there is
a male protector on the premises armed 1
and ready for resiatance." 1
as a epecimen of unique literary work
the report of the. Secretary of the Trea^ ?
ury has probably never been equalled by |
auy departmental report. "English as !
she is spoko" is here rivalled by English j
aa ehe may be wrote. For instance,
the learned Secretary on page 32 expresses
himself in this wise on the subject of '
shelter, clothing arid food: A
' Everywhere the effort is to obtain i
shelter, clothing, food and the ornaments of i
tU urcensitira of life, at a smaller expense
of mental energy and bodily toil.".
Just what the ornamtnUol food would
be, unless he meana plenty of | butter and
molasses on our bread, we are at a loss to
conjecture. We presume the ornaments
of shelter would be a Mansard roof or a
mort^ago on a house.
Attain, on page 33, we are treated to the
following Homewhat peculiar remark on
tho subject of prices:
"The general range of prices of the hundred
chief commodities of civilized man's j
use has been more than a third of a century
in completing the last leisurely cycle
of it? rise and fall.
There is something provokingly evasive
bout the way we seem to catch on and
then not to catch on to whatever the Secretary
means to say in the foregoing re- :
mark, and we will feel obliged to somo
reader who will explain to us for certalu
just what he really intends to express.
Then, too, we are all torn up with a bad
headache over tho following sentence on
the subject of prices and wages, on page
34: ' i
"Even where reduced prices necessitate
reduced wages (and on the hole, even in j
Kurope, the return to labor grows more ;
and more) the wage-receiver gets the ad- ;
vantage of wapes being slow to move, as ho 1
rvw uio uiBMUvnuwiKu ui vuoii uciun
ml to raovo when Irom a degradation of
the unit of value, or its legal equivalent,
prices measured by that unit going up,
the gams wanes buy leai."
This ta exactly what the Socrotary says,
verbatim et punctuatlm, just aa be himb*H,
or his oflice boy, wrote it Bnt just
what he means by it must be a matter o(
'peculation until he iasuea an edition ol
his report with explanatory loot notea.
Hut, seriously, It is really discreditable
to the government to have so important a
document aa the Trcaaury report couched
in such crude, turgid and obscure
phraseology aa characteriiea this emanation
(roui Mr. Manning. Generally apeakin,?,
a man's Ideas on any subject are not
worth much who cannot intelligently express
them.
SHERMAN RESIGNS.
ACTION OF REPUBLICAN CAUCUS.
Tbo President of ths Ssnatc BUpt Down,
and Senator Elmnods li Halsctod in
his Stead?Congressional Niwi,
General Capital Gossip.
Washington, D. C., Dec. 11.?1The Republican
Senators met in caucui at 11
o'clock to-day. Senator Sherman resigned
his position aa Chairman of the cancue,
and Senator Edmunds was elected to that
place. This action was due to the fact
that no Senator has ever been chairman
of the caucus and presiding officer
of the Senate at the same time, and Senator
Sherman felt it incumbent upon him
not to depart from the line of precedents.
Tbo action of the Caucus Committeo in
the arrangement of chairmanships of Sen*
ate committees, namely, in deciding
to tender to Senator Sewell that of the
Joint Committee on the Library, and to
Senator Logan his old place on Military
Affairs was ratified. Nearly all the time
was df voted to a discussion of the line of
policy to be adopted toward Presidential
appointments:
The Senators expressed their views
freely and were found to be practically
unanimous against the adoption of any
general policy of opposition, bat were
agreed upon the advisability of treating
each nomination upon its merits. Opinions,
were expressed and generally assented
to that good men .appointed to oflice be- ,
cause they were Democrats should be con- i
tinned, except in case when their predecessors
were removed upon unfounded ,
charges brought for the purpose of making i
pretexts for tne creation of vacancies. ,
In such casts it was urged that the j
nomination should be held up to give removed
officials an. opportunity for vindi- i
cation. The Senators who were present /
express the opinion that this p'an, for the i
present, will govern the course of the Re- j
publicans. The caucus adjourned without j
delay. I

troller Cannon, ex-ofUcio commissioner of
the Froedmen'a Saviugs and Trust Company,
has made a report to Cjngresa in regard
to tbe affairs of that institution, from
which it appears that the total payments
mad* to croditorfe of liio company aggregate
$1,720,780, leatiug to be paid, under
the urovisious of the act ef February 17,
Ijo&3, tb*j fiupi of $8,526. The commissioner
renews bia recommendation for
relief by Congress of the uufortqnflte 1
creditors of the bank, and adds;
The great majority of them are of the
poorest and most illiterate of our people, ,
many of them have grown old and decrepit.
It seems impossible for the people (
to realize that they are to deprive or have i
lost a portion of their earnings, which c
years ago they labored so bard to acquire i
and save. Thousands of them to tliig day
believe that dividends paid them are but *
interest on, or earnings of thoir deposit, t
and that sooner or later their original de- ]
posits will be returned to them. No ex- i
pjawatjon sterns to convince them to the
contrary, and calls are made daily both
orally aud in writing for "their money." e
Nor ought it be considered strange qr tin- l
reasonable, in view of alj circumstances, :
for these peopb to look to the government

the official intercourse between the two ,
Houses. The code le Idaathml with tho I
joint code which the Senate acted upon (
two years, except in respect to Kale 13, j
which the committee has stricken out. <
This rule prohibits the sale of intoxicating .
liquors in the Capitol l?uildin?. 1'be Men- .
ate has a rule of this kind in its owq (;ot|e?

Wotihl-bo Murder?r?. ]
Fba.nkkort, Ky., Dec. 11.?About two
weeks ago the bare fact that Frank Sand- ,
jrs had been shot down in the mountain
wilds of Whitely county, was learned here
!rom citizens coming from that section. A
fentleman who lives hero has just return>d
from Whitely county, bringing the
lews of a romance of which the killing
vas the finale. Ho says that the tradi*
ion in Whitley is that just before tho
:loae of the war Sanders and two other
nen, all of whom were members of a
[uerilla band, took a man natnod Sam
Smock into the woods in the eastern part
>f the county and put a pistol between
lis eyes and tirod. Smock fell and they
eft hira for dead. Fortunately for Sam,
he bullet (ranged downward, missing the
jrain, and it came out at the base of tho
ieck. lie was found and cared lor by
riends, qnd after long nursing recovered,
["he mew who attempted the murder did
lot trv to conceal their identity from
imock; in fact they wanted him to" know
hem. They felt secure in the faith that
'dead men tell no tales."
After Smock's recovery he registered an
>ath that he woijld devote l|is life to huntng
down and killing thcee three inpn. A
ew weeks ago he passed through Wayne
lounty, and, in conversation with one of
lis old friends, said: "I have killed two
>f the men who attempted to murder me
iqme years ago. I found one of them in
Missouri, and gne ip (jnrrard couuty, Ky.
[ did my workflilentl}' and well, and h*YP
lever been arrested. I am now on tfab J
rack of the last man. His name is Sandire,
and I will have him in loss than ten <
lays. I will make myself known to him 1
jefore shooting."
One week later the body of frank Sand- '
>rs was found in a lonely path jn theg}oni '
if Whiteley couuty, with the following l
lote scribbled in pencil pinned to his coat: '
"This is the last act of a tragedy begun |
rears ago."
No one doubted that 8raock did the kill* 1
pg. He has not been seen since, and no '
mo is taking any pains to find him. 1

rector of 8t. Bartholomew's Protestant c

after 8 o'clock, the groups had increased t
to a small crowd. c
The crowd was orderly and the services 1
of the police were not needed. As the li
hour appointed for the beginning of the

riage after carriage drove to the entrance P
and deposited the children, the intimate *
friends and the pall hearers of the de- e

mourning liveries. 1
Shortly before 9 o'clock the immediate tl
family looked for tho lost time upon the e
face of the deceased. The service con- ?
ducted by the Rev. Dr. Cook was simple I
and touching, consisting of a prayer, a a
faw words of remembrance and of con- b
Bolation. The coffin was then closed and t<

At 9:45 a. u. the funeral cortege started p
for the church. There were 110 crowdfl on
tho streets through which it passed, and
the police along the line almost outnum- u
bered the sight-seers.
At a quarter past 10 the doors of St. 0

Eptering the Mqrarri?n;cemetery by the ?
naln entrance, a sharp turn to the right
jrings into view the old family plot ot (he u,
^anderbiits. This plot is about forty feet i(
iquare. In the cento; of if stands the Jn
jbnllsk (fifteen feet in height) which ?ur- 1
mounts tne vauii propef,
The obelisk itself la very plain' sand* a
[tone and granite, faces toward the north!BBt,
and has no marking upon of any T<
rind, except that just over the door, in
rery plain letters, tbo name Vanderbilt is *
jarved. The entrance is through a door pi
)f Iron. On either side of this door are wi
Corinthian columns, also very plain. On hi
mterjng the obelisk a flight of stone stairs io
lead into the vault, which is exactly
thirty feet square. This entire structure
was built by the lato Commodore Vanderbilt
in 1850, and contains thirty shelves
for holding the burial caskets. In it are
buried the Commodore, his two wives, his
son George, a daughter and several grandchildren.
About a year ago Mr. William
Vanderbilt visited New Dorp and marked
out the course of a new road to run
through the center of the cemetery up to
the new plot which he had purchased.
This road is partially completed, and Mr.
Vanderbilt had agreed to pay for its building.
This road, after a course of half a i
mile, leads to the entrance of the grand i
mausoleum. Although but partially completed,
this tomb is a veritable palace of
:he dead. Standing on the western bound- '
iry ot the Vanderbilt ulot of twenty-two t
icre*. upon the slope of a hill, its site is \
ixcellent.
Tula mauso'eum was begun in January
)f the present year. It bas a frontage of 1
linety-two feet and a deLth of eighty-six c
eet. Its height is to be forty feet from c
he top of the dome to the ground. The c
ityln of architecture is Gothic. The front,
if CJuincy granine, is very beautiful,
arved and adorned from designs by 1
everal prominent artists. There are I
hree entrances into a sort of lobby, and 1
me from this lobby into the vault. The r
ovoy at present naa upon lis wans hjx r
ar*e black roarblo tablets.
The interior of the mausoleum resem- 1
ties a church or chapel, and even in its
resent unfinished condition is grand. J
iich carvings are upon the walls over n
very tier of burial shelves. At the end. J
ppoaite tho ebtrance, is tho altar, a solid J
lock of white marble, beautifully carved. *
'bo shelves upon which the caskets of n
be Vanderbilts will be placed are upon *
ither side of the bu'lding. They are *
aventy-eight in number, and are cut from
ndiaua limestone. In general raay be
lid of the mausoleum that thu front is to 0
e of Quincy granite, and the roof and in>rior
ut Indiana limestone; while the obsets
of adornment inside will be marble. "
he eite of this tomb is commanding. It U.

Indiana, aud that was Oliver P. Mor- H

Indiana absolutely. .
In 1870 Morton went over to Columbus j

PirrsuuRaii, Pa., Dec. 11.?Quiet reigns
about the Monongahela Valley mines
to-day. Notwithstanding the uneasiness
felt last night there was no disturbance,
although the strikers were
iround all night, but kept at a safe disance.
The non-union miners at Pino
Run did not go to work until daylight this
aornlng, fearing a repetition of yesterlav's
attack. TLrey have decided to discontinue
the night work as long as there is
langer of another outbreak.
At Allequippa the workmen expected
n attack during the night, and made
jreparations to givetho mob a warmrecepion.
They were provided with repeating
ides, and each man was given fifty rounds
>f ammunition. The strikers did not put

Great excitement prevails among the
esidenta in the neighborhood of these
lines, and serious trouble, perhaps bloodhed,
is predicted. Sheriti Gray has staiooed
a pose near the Allequippa and
'ioe Kun, and has also sworn in a large
umber of men, living in the vicinity,
'ho will respond to his call at a moment's

STILL TIIREATKNING.
The striking miners aro still encamped
Q the hills near l'ine Kun. They did
ot venture near the mines to-day and
le non-union miners were allowed to go

lolested. A feeling of insecurity pronils,
however, and another outbreak is
K)ked for at any time. It is thought an
[fort will be made to settle the strike by
rbitraUon.
Master Workman Newman, of the
knights of Labor, telegraphed to Grand
taster Workman Powderly, this evening,
iking him to come on at once and take a

Columbus, 0., Dec. 11.?Mine Inspector
tucroft has just filed his annual report
ith tho Governor. Coming as it does at
is time, when tho condition of a/lairs is
such an unsettled state in the mining
gions of Ohio, the report is exceedingly
teresting. Mr. Bancroft Bays that the
al trade in the State has been by no
cans srtisfactory, yet the improvement
the mines during the past year has
ipt pace with those of the preceding
iar. notwithstanding the great depreesion 1
the trade. The production of iron has
ten alrnoat suspended. He states that the
ocovery of natural gas at Pittsburgh has ]
id a baneful effect upon the coal trade of ;
tiio, as it has crowded from the Pittslrgh
market from 8,000 to 10,000 tons '
coal per day, which has been obliged to
ek new markets, and now comee in 1
rect competition with Ohio coal on the
kes. Tuere have been many improveents
during the yoar, forty-five ventiting
furnaces and nineteen fans having j
sen erected, 43 air shafts sunk, 13 safety 1
itches placed upon cages, and 114 mine
ales inspected. ,
At present tbwe are 54ft mines in the
ate, 20tf of which are Binall ones, being ,
lly worked for private consumption, j
liey are situated in Lawrence, Columbimaand
Muskingum counties. Twentyt
mines Uavo worked out and 28 new :
iaes opened sinoe the Jast report. J
Concerning the Anti-Scrip law passed
the last Legislature, the Inspector says: j
t has had a very salutary elitet oa the
atter it was intended to reach, although,
yet, it has by no means entirely aboltied
the custom. Ong of the largest
ining complies q| the ?t*te, the Goliyais
an4 yoking Goal and Iron Compan/,
ton ma iiwbuko oi act, at once witn- ,
aw their scrip from circulation and 1
lopted weekly payments in iU place." i
The total number ot meu employed ia ,
,804 in (he commercial mines. The re- ,
irt allows 51 deaths and 33 nouidenti, the
Iter moetljr caused by falling elate. '
Atr. tancroft gays: "Natural gas has <
used I'ittaburgh coal to be thrown into ,
rent competition with Ohio coal. Where
e Pittsburgh mines paid the same price
those oi Ohio, their operatora would <
ill b?,ve tbe advantage over quia from l
e (act that they use their alack in malt- ,
g coke, and by this means utilise ail ,
eir produvt. There ia no di>gitiaing the
ct that until the cost at production can 1
I more nearly equalised, any advancoin >
e price ol Onio coal becomes aimply a <
emium offered to that ol Pittsburgh. >
The reDort save, in aoeakinu of the <
jubles in the Hocking Valley t - The op ton
claim, and with justice, that they
e unaiito to make contact* (or future
Jivery with any surety as to prices or
>ility to fill them, from the (act that they
ay at any time be asked (or an advance
mining, and upon refusal to concede
ere is a total stoppage ol production,
i the other hand, the minora assert that
ery advantage is taken by employers to
iep the price at mining down, and that
eir just proportion ol any advance in
e price of coal is never accorded them
Ithout a struggle."
Mr. Bancroft is strongly In (avor ol arbiation,
believing that this is the only
ethoU to reach the solution o( all probms
which may arise without recourse to
rikos. He thinks the meeting to be
lid in Pittsburgh on December 16, will
suit in much good, as It will give all an
iportunity to learn each others' views in
e various mining questions. He conlers
the Iron industry ol the State to be
a flattering condition and believes that
season ol prosperous time* is In the near

San Francisco, Dec. 11.?Shortly bofore
11 o'clock this morning, C. W. Brown,
?u engineer, residing at Cheyenne, Wyoming,
entered the otlice of John A. Benron,
Land Surveyor, and asking the time
)f day, abruptly said:
"Benson, I am in trouble with a woman
it Cheyenne and want your advice aud
aelp."
Benson replied that (he was bury, and
ose to go .out. *'When he reached the
loor 01 his ornce, lie nan turned to limber
ixcuse himself (or leaving so uncereaoniously,
when Brown drew a reolver,
and without saying a word
[red. The ball struck Benson on the
aft cheek. Brown fired again, the ball
iking effect in his neck. This wound
ave rise to the belief that Benson's throat
ad been cut, as he was bleeding profusely
om the wound when found.
Brown then turned ttie revolver on
imself and fired three shots, but realizing
e had not killed himself, he seized a largo
sper cutter lying on the deck and furiusly
thrust it into his neck. The blow
as so well aimed and with such savsgt*
irce that it passed almoet through and
ivered the jugular vein, lie dropped to
le tloor alongside of his victim, and in a
iw minutes bled to death.
A policeman who happened to be near
te door of the oflice heard the shots and
ished into Benson's office, but too late to
revent further mischief. No word, nor
gn of life c-onld be extracted from Brown,
no was in tne last agonies of death,
enson, on the contrary, gaz-d up
lickly raid and he hadn't had any dispute
ith Brown; had known him for several
iars; had had many land transactions
ith him, but did not know why he should
toot him or take his own life.
Brown is well known on the coast, havif
resided here fourteen years. Last
lly he failed for $220,000, but succeotled
arranging his affaire, and since then
cured some valuable government land
i dredging contracts.
The trouble is traced to a balance of
