Tin Yanderbilt will in another colnmn
is something that reads like an Arabian

It is of conrde about time lor Mexico to
have a revolution, but we did hope that (
after getting railroad connections with the ,
United States she would acquire sotno (
sober sense and quit that sort of tiling.
Brulttreei'a summary tBis morning remarks
(for the benefit of the Pittsburgh
papers we presume) that the boom in iron
is "east of-the' Alleghenies and south of
Pennsylvania," so far as there ia anything
of that kind.
A detail of Pinkerton's detectives will
guard the remains of the once but now
dead Vanderbilt lest the fato of A. T.
.Stewart's bones be/all them. Lszarui has
the odds on Dives when it comes to a
post-mortem outrage.
0;tj of about two hundred millions left
behind Vanderbilt gave a solitary million
to charity. Not much of a ticket that to
go to the land
"Where the pew man it great,
Though he hath no estate,
A? If he had a million a year."
Mr. Pahnkll proposes to receive proposal
in regard to Ireland from the two
parties in tho British Parliament between <]
whom liia followers noza me oaianco 01 r
power. The advancod domand will be c
(or home government and practical inde- J
pendenca, such as Canada onjoys; no representation
in the imperial parliament I
and no participation in the English debt, t
Wall Stiiekt speculators interpreted 1
the Vanderbilt will as meaning that the
great millionaire had not tied up his rail* f
road slocks so strenuously among bis
heirs but that they could market a few
millions whenever they chose to hold a j
council of war /or that purpose. Henco d
they pressed the Vanderbilt stocks for j,
sale Saturday aftern'wa very freely, and i
the whole market declined. o
Baltimore a Ohio stock is quoted these r
days at $175 bid, per share, and $IU0 y
asked. It is a 10 percent stock and there t
is less than 920,000,000 of it all told. The c
surplus is $47,000,000 and thore is now not 1
half as much pressure to capitalise this J
surplus as there was 15 years ago. The t
value of good credit has been taught by
? HL_ x?_n? ?- Ai.s_ II
ttiecareiui policy ox me oauiuiuro tt umu,
in contrast to the stock-watering policy of J
so many other lines. It is this credit that a
?uab/fs the Baltimore-A Ohio to hold the 11
pool io check at the very gates of New "
York city, and command an entrance into (j
that harbor despite the moat powerful ad- q
Torse influences. Apropos to this entry ?
into New York, we observe that tho
triumphal dinner entertainment whereat ?]
and whereby it is to be duly celebratod, a
comes olf on Monday evening at the Pa- *
vilion hotel, 8taten Island, and that ex- ?
Henator Henry G. Davis is to represent jj
West Virginia on the occasion, assisted by h
the Governors of New Jersoy, Pennsylvaoia
and Maryland, and the mayors of
New York, Philadelphia, Brooklyn and
Baltimore, on behalf of their respective E
municipalities. ^

Tub United Presbyterian Churches of ?
Pittsburgh have set themsel?#!to do some J
earnest work among the poor this winter, [j
An they are a numerous an*l influential d
body in that city tbey can do a great deal tl
of themselves and, by their example, P.
among other churches. One of the means |(
by which they propose to encourage A
church attendance among the poor is to k
adopt a plainer style of dress at church, J
nod tbus, as lar an posaioie, ao away witn
all iinea ol distinction. The Fourth U. P.
Church seems to be especially active in t
this direction. The pastor, Her. Mr. Fill*
too, sajs that all the membership hate
been requested to dress plainly and dis- V
cird jewelry, sealskin sacques, plumes, Ac. *
He adds: ' c
"Many persons remain away from church ft
nor vices becauae they cannot wear aa good ti
clothes as those wno attend. We have u
decided to overcomothia objection and expect
to reach the poor classes in this way." 0
This is' not all, however, that'they"jmv ^
pose to do. The membership are going ^
out among the poor to got the children in- ^
teu'BU'd in industrial exercises at tiie J[
churches. This-programme Mr. Fulton a
(explains is follows! * H
"The poor are hard to reach. We are
trying to gather them in by the introduc- 0
tion of an entirely new feature in church v
work. An industrial school for girls will *
be started on next Saturday afternoon. ?
An addition to the church has just been ?
completed, and divided into four rooms. 1
Two of them will be used for teaching ?
sewing, and the otiier two lor cooking and J*
.housework. A number of competent Jj
teachers from the congregation have 11
volunteered thoir services. In the first r]
room tho girls will be taught how to *
handle the needle, and afterward will be ?
promoted to tho next room, whero plain u
sewing will be taught. As they improve
iney win oe given nner wore.
"Several Bowing machines have been .
purchased, and the pupils will havo every r
advantage They will also receive pay J|
lor every garment thoy make that can be r1
sold. These goods will be disposed of bv J!
different henovolont societies. Some will 1
be sold to the poor for compensation. In
the cooking department girls will be
taught everything that is necessary for a
iiood cook to learn. They will alto be (
given lessons in setting a table, dusting (
and all kinds of housework. Of course wo fl
will not make any money out of the
school, but the finances are in good hands J
snd the school will be permanent. J

There is a desire on the part of many
members to have a call of the States on $
Monday for the introduction of a bill for '
reference to the Appropriations Commit?e
whon appointed, and in deference to a
:1iom desiring it, it was informally agreed h
jy members of the Committee on Rules ?]
yesterday to make no opposition to such a
all. .There are, however, members of the .
louse wlio express an intention to oppose ?
ho introduction of bills until the House ifl
ihall have determined by a vote on the r
Morrison code of jurisdiction of various c<
lommittees, and who hold that it wculd ?

'Wasuiwotok, Dec. 12.?There waa a cc
iretty full attendance at the House to- jn
lay, although the aesalon lasted but.'a few
innutea. Mr. Heed, of Maine, in offering w
iia Resolution, providing for the printing ni
f the compilation of the revision of the k,
ules of the House in the Thirty-sixth and ra
forty-sixth Congresses, has laid the iB
roundwork for a very extended report of .
be Committee on KuIph. The printing lu
ouki riot be tor life benefit of the commit- to
6e, aince it hwa already deeded upon its ej
pport. it ia clear that Mr. K-ied expects D(
, long and earnest debate upon the adopt &.
ion of the couiinUte0*9 report, f
Mr. Morrieon saiu to night that the com- u:
aitteo had come to the conclusion to reort
the revision substantially ay he had tu
litroduced it in iho House. If ttero ia ti.
ny opp> sition of cona?quenue, there ii . .
0 telling how long thia debate will lut, ^
b there will ho no limit in exiting rules tn
) prevont its going on. There is a good bi
eal of feeling already developed on the J7.
ueatiou, and it ia likely to have an outlet _e
a soon as the subject comes up on Mon- Qc
There is now no longer any question 1?
bat the Morrison proposition will be *.
dopted, with very slight changes. Mr.
landall haa giyen fair notico that he will
ntagonize the pronosetj revision in the *
louw all the way through, If* eppofed p
in the committee, but stood alone on t
is olde of the ^uwtion. if the House J/J
ividea in the same proportion, Mr. Kanall
will not be able to m^ke mtfcfr imreasion
with his objections. JL
Mr. Kendall's latest move is to ca}l 9 .
emocratic caucus, and it is not unlikely y,
mt on Monday he will succeed in Retting
nnii?l< mumliMC Huciirfltha rancui. Ha .
an(? it to bo made a pir{;> matter, and if

ictum of tha Democratic caucus. He !,
links the iiepubl|c<tu are earnestly eh- !r
envoring to bring about tills flbauge, for "
le eake of giving the minority greater 7
owers. It *ill be the policy of the Stor- J?
ion faction to oppose any consideration :'
1 the caucus el the revision of the rales,
j) they succeeded ia (lie first caucus in

cclnsively hia own. The only prominent j1
(raon he has not interviewed is John L. 1

- CONSPIRACY.
The Liability of Corporation*?'Th?j Can bo
>oed for Oonnplracjr.
Buffalo, N. Y., Dec. 12.?Judge fowls,
of the Supreme Court, handed down an
J&portant decision in the suit brought by
the Buffalo Lubricating Oil Company
against the Standard and Acme Oil Companies.
The damages claimed amounted
to about $200,000, and are asked for
alleged conspiracy to drive the plaintifia
out of business. The Standard's lawyere
moved to have the case thrown out of
court on the gouud that corporations could
not be sued for conspiracy. The decision
is as follows:
"Upon principle and authority there
would seem to be very little doubt that
| actions of libel, assault and battery, marlicious
prosecution, <&c.,can be maintained
against the corporation. I am not able to
| see if that class of actions can be sustained
against them why actions of conspiracy
can not also be maintained. While corporations,
as such, cannot think, their
officers and agents can think and act, and
if when they are acting for the corporation
enter into a conspiracy, the corporation is
liable for theiracts.
"While the complaint fails to set forth '
facts showing conspiracy of the defend- '
ante with as much clearness as is desira- 1
(ble, applying to it the liberal rules 'of construetton
demanded by the code of civil 1
procedure, it must bs held to state facts 1
sufficient to constitute a cause of action '
against all the defendants.
"Demurrer overruled with costs against '
trie ueienuant, the fctauuaru uu uompany, '
of New York, and the Acme Company, 1
with leave to said defendants to serve an- j
ewer within thirty daya on payment of 1
costs." ?

TERRIBLE DISASTER.

la a Tenement Hume Tire In Plymouth,
Kogland-Othere Mangled by Jumping
From the Wlndowe?The ItnlgarUna
Suffer a Terrible Defeat.
London, Dec. 13.?At Plymouth to-day
a tenement bouse on Lone street, in a low
and squalid neighborhood, took fire, and
a terrible calamity resulted. The tlames
burned rapidly and fiercely, and when at
last they were subdued twelve calcined
human bodies were found among the
ruins. Two othere are missing and in all
probability they, too, have been burned to
death. One unfortunate victim was
smashed to pieces by jumping from a high
window to the ground. Several of the
tenants in their fright escaped by throwing
bedding to the pavement, forty feet below,
and jumping from the windows. A number
of these had legs and arms broken by
the fearful leap. A harrowing incident of
the calamity was the appearance of a
pouth who with his littlesister in one arm,
tiung suspended from a window by the
sther for some minutes until the flames
surrounded him and caused him to loose
his hold and fall to the ground. He had '
both legs fractured. The child was also i
wverely injured. The intensity of the '
limes gave the building tho appearance I
it a furnace, but this did not deter the j
iremen, many of whom entered the house i
md by a heroic s:ruggle succeeded in i
escuing several persons. i

GLADSTONES PREDICAMENT. t
le Maat Treat with Klthor of tlie two Par- ^
tlerto win. 8
London, Dec. 12.?There is no doubt of a
he intention of the Liberals with regard B
o their behavior on the opening of Par- d
iamont. They will plunge into the con- J
lict for supremacy at once. So mucb, at t
sast, has been decided at the conference fj
rhich Mr. Gladstone has been holding i
nth his colleagues at Hawarden. It has 0
een determined to make an immediate ?
nslaught on the Salisbury Government, tJ
itSinnf wnitincr for flnv anpi-ial nmtBo fnr li
eginning hostilities. The program 1110 ar- P
luged ia of the simplest kind possible. j
mmediately after the speech from the e
irone has been read, a motion of a want n
f confidence in the Government will be r<
iade. The Liberals have no fear of not *
eing able to carry thia motion, trusting n
) their number chiefly.
Mr. Gladstone insists, despite the rea)ds
for delay which have been presented P
> him, on maintaining the precedent
hich has been followed for many years,
tat a government which finds itself in a
linority should not remain in office a ^
loment after the numerical inferiority of fc
le party supporting it has been mani- a,
at.
There is some doubt among the moro
loderate Liberals with regard to Mr. "
ladstone's ability to obtain a voto of d
ant of confidence, on account of the de- w
iction of the Radicals, and the uucer- ..
linty of the conduct of the Nationalists. u
Without one or the other tho Liberals d(
ould be far from being in a majority.. tr
A peculiar, and, at this juncture, an ex- j,
emoly important feature of the conferices
at Hawarden, is that noither Mr. J1
hamberlain nor Sir Charles Dilke was "
ivitod to them. This is only one indicaan,
and there are many others, scarcely
S3 significant, of the fact the breach be
.'eon the ltaaicai jeauers ana ineir '
rmer colleagues in tho Gladatone Mini a- "
ry is widening more and more every 01
it, and threatens to become irreparable "
id to croata two distinct parties out of
lat formerly known as the Liberal. 51
Sir Charles Dilke and Mr, Chamberlain Ir
ive been holding private meetingewith Tl
ie Radical caucus leaders at Birmingham,
id the result|of tlieaeseparate conferences
that they have resolvei to withhold
eir assistance from Mr. Oladatone in his D
ruggle for regaining oflico, unless they ai
a given previous assurance that lucn :
beral measures will be introduced in
uliament by the Gladatone government
shall fully aatisfy the Radicals. ac
After the meeting at which this reeolu- |,
311 was taken as the ultimatum of the p
adical leaders, Sir Charles Dilke en- L
reed this position of hit faction by his bi
itspoken sentiments. Speaking at the tr
belsea Club, he denied that the Radical C1
ing of the Liberal party was desirous of
irning out the present government, lie ti
sclared that it would not only hold back hi
i assistance from Mr. Gladstone, but bi
ould support the Conservatives freely p(
id without regard to traditional party B,
visions, provided that the measure pre- v<
nted by the Conservatives should meet ai

Nkw York, Dec. 12.?Special telegrams
to Bradtireet's from leading trade centers
throughout the United States revor.1 u
Bomewhat better trade generally, west,
northwest and south, than in reported at
the east. This is shown in an exceptionally
solvent condition oi traders at Chicago,
as reported by bankers at that city.
Tho cold weather there, as through the
region west and northwest of the great
alces, has stimulated a more active denand
for heavy dry goods. In fact, the
pnnrt* from Kt I/inia k'ntinau nitw frn.H
he larger cities in Iowa, and at points in
)hio aud distributing centers buuUi are
airly indicative ol a rather bettor
etail demand in some staple hues,
rhich will tend to hasten the aat? when
snewed orders from jobbers' agents aud
aanufacturers at tbe East may bo ex ected.
As was to be expectod, tbe douand
for holiday goods at all points is
uite brisk. At" tho East, however, the
eniand in wholesale liuea has not atracted
much attention. Philadelphia reorts
that the unseasonable weather has
ad some e?ect, and that trade in only
lir, with no general activity. At Bodtou
like statement is made, although thero
i a fair movement. Tbe business of the
Hist season is believed to be in excess of
lat of 1884.
b'toeks are smaller now than then, and
le mills are not increasing their output.
; is udded that the export demand alone
