I Tuxsday night Tom Coffey and Yank
Kenney had a lively scrapping match in
the Sixth ward. Mike Clark interfered T0
and Coffey turning his attention solely to
him they had an interesting bout. Kenney
took this cccaeion to slip away, having
had enough. Yesterday Coffey and ,
Clark were before Justice Manion, and ae
Coffey was fined $5 and costs and put on* ,
der bond of 150 to keep the peace for six J>
months. The case against Clark was dis- aE
missed, it appearing that ho had merely ,
tried to quell a disturbance, and, as is m
often the case with peacemakers, got the 0T
worst of it. 0V
AN ELEGANT AFFAIH.
A .Splendid Itocoptlou Given by Mr. and
Aire, Joseph Speldel.
An elegant reception waa given last
night by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Speldel, at
their charming home on Ohapline street, ca
complimentary to- their gnest, Misa Grace *
Kelly, of Birneaville. The parlors and y'
corridors which were tastefully decorated Ft
for the event, were thronged with a large In
nnmbsr of people prominent in both old
and young social circles. There was
dancing, for which Kramer famished the
music, and refreshments were served.
Mis. Speidei in receiving was assisted by ?0
her charming gnest, and the welcome fic
these ladies extended to the gnests of the n
evening was a most gracious one. The occasion
was a very enjoyable one throughout
and the memory of it wiii linger with .
those who were there for seasons to come.

There wan some trouble at the Monnds- th

Superintendent and the contractors. So c9;
lit aa can be learned It waa about aa Xol- pe
lows: It 10 the custom ol Superintendent ws
Roberlson to select the prisoners for M'
the respective shops each morning and
send them to the contractors. Bat it 1
seems that oi late some ol the men have m<
not been satisfactory to ths contractors, m<
and yesterday they refused to receive Tfc
them. Mr. Robertson vonld not counter- Hi
mand his orders, and aa a consequence all rn:
the works were idle the whole day. What an
will be done in the matter to-day is not ha
known, but it is thought everything will m<
be satisfactorily arranged. els

i. jiu largely attended meeting
jiembers of the Amalgamated Aaaociaion,
held yeeterday at St. George'e hall,
a Kellly'e building, to consider what acion
ahoold ba taken in view ol the aiim
ng by the Riverside Company of the
eile for ita steel plint and plate mill, pre>are4
and presented by the Knights of
jibor. Nothing definite waa decided on,
mt the mooting ia said to have been a
rery interesting and Important one.
As soon as it was learned Tuesday night
hat the company had signed the K. of L.
cale, a call was sent oat for a meeting of
llverside Lodge, composed almost entirey
of men that have been employed In the
flveraide'a works at Benwood, and a dislatch
waa sent to Secretary William Marin
at Pittsburgh asking him to be presint.
He came down yesterday morning,
nd with Mr, Dennis O'Luary, of this city,
flee President of the order for this disrict,
was prssent at yesterday's meeting,
vhlch was called to order early in the
ifternoon and continued in session nntil
liter dark. Of coarse it was a secret
nsetlng. The informstion given ont,
lowever, is to the effect that the scale
is signed by the Riveralde Company and
he scale prepared and adopted by tbo
Amalgamated Association for like work
vere carefully compared, and it la said
hat in taking all the departments together
and computing the wages paid per
00 tons, a difference ol $6 waa found, the
iinghts of Labor ecale being that much
inder that of the Amalgamation. A commute
waa appointed to wait on Manager
iearne to-day and ask that the Amalganatlon's
scale bo substituted for that aleady
signed.
For the past two yeais the Riverside
iteel plant and plate mill have been operited
under a K. of L. scale. The comiiuiy'B
representatives say that ths scale
<i presented this year was in a number of
nstancee higher than that of last year,
rat that in a conference it was somewhat
uodlfied but still remains higher. The
Amalgamation authorities say that while
he scale algned may be higher in some
natanceaitia mostly raiaei at a sacrmco
(wages paid in other department* of tho
ilant or plate mill. These latter in refering
to the K. of L. scale under which the
tiverside waa operated last year say that
& was from $7 to $S 50 lower in the aggrente,
per 100 tons, than what was paid in
therlike concerns.
The scale signed calls for eighty-two
nnnage men, to bo worked on double turn.
If these eighty-two the Amalgamation
fllcials say that only about fifty are
Lnights, and that of this number between
wenty and thirty say positively that they
rill not work under the scale signed by
tie Riverside people. With the works
ii full, about 300 hands are employed,
'he Riverside Company proposes to start
p Monday morning.
Yesterday's mooting was attended by
bout one hundred and fifty, there being
a addition to the members of the Lodge
number belonging to the nailers' lodge.
Vhat tho outcome will be in case the
tiverside Company refo6es to fpant tho
equest to be made, is an interesting queaion.
The committee is instructed to acBpt
no compromise. The nailers aro
iking a decided interest in the matter,
he Amalgamated Association as is well
nown has recently been greatly strengthened
by recruits from the ranks of the
ailers.

here and there to lips that are parched in
the feverish straggle with sorrow and sin;
to lips that have been seeking to quench
their thirst at earth's broken cisterns; to
true hearts and lives Bhut away from
spiritual privileges because of the mother
cares, with no ono to lighten the burden,
or give them a chance to get out&ido of
their own door only once in many weeks.
The highest encouragement we have
bad has come, not so much from what our
9yes have seen, aa from what our faith
bas grasped of the promise, "fie that
joeth forth and weepetb, bearing precious
seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
bringing his ehoaves with him."
Where we might have hoped for much we
aave reaped the lesst, and where there
was the least hope of anything wo have
roaped the most. Not only to those who
lever had any hope in Christ have we
}een lending a holping hand, bat also
;ryinjz to "strengthen the things that renain"
among fainting, discouraged, and
rall.nlnli annln wfin nnna
Tore active in Ghriotian life. Some of
hem have started lifo, aa it were anew,
frith the reviving of old hopes, and the
orming of new purposes for Christly livng.
We have been made to rejoice, as in
ormer months,bccause of the salvation and
lope of eternal life that has come to suferers
in their last days; but in each case
t hss been where the illness has been
trolonged; have had but little hopeful
tonversions in cases of sudden or short
ickneeo and quick deaths. Somestran;ors
have come to the city, sickened and
lied unknown to any pastor until sent for
o bury them; and yet through our cot*
age prayer-meetings they have been led
o the savior of pinners and died in peace.
I have made JJ06 visits during the month;
itnong that number I have found many
rho once held connection with some
hurch, but moving here strangers negected
to get a church letter, and are now
ntirelv outside. As I meet these thous,nds
of people who never go to any plict
f worship, Protestant or Catholics, I see
LiUI u BUU UJUIO WO UCl.UOCiVJ' Ul, UUt UU1/
me City Missionary, but of hundreds of
ur Christian people carrying the gospel
nto the homes of those who wonld go into
he chnrches if they could, and of those
rho wouldn't if thov could. A married
roman and mother told me a few days
go that ehe had never been in a church ,
iut twice in her life, could not read the
lible, and had none; no christian had
ver visited her or prayed in ber home. I
lave prayed with 160 of the families; read 1
be Word to 54; gave 100 pages of tracts;
0 religious and temperanco papers; 1
isited 25 sick ones; held 2.cottage prayer ,
leetings; and secured promise of 10 child- '
en for Sunday school.

HARMONIOUS VIEWS
FUOM UIVKJISK STANDPOINTS.
Two Btuloau Hn Who Vttor a Protective
Tariff for Morel BMHu-Kall Mahlog
a tka Faellle CuaeL? Whj KaliaidlH
(Jan be Made la thla Country.
Mr. 0. W. Wright, ol San Kranciaco,
and his brother, Mr. A. A. Wright, ol New
York Oity, are at the McLtxre hooae. The
former ia general agent ol the Pacific Iron
and Nail Company, wkoeo mills are at
Oakland, where many old Wheeling men
are employed. Hia brother repreaenta the
American branch house ol Alfred Shrimpton
& Bona, ol Beddlch, England, manufacturer!
ol needles.'
It is eeldoai one meets two as diverse
interests represented in as widely separated
sections by two brothers. Yet the
Meesrs. Wright agree on ono point in
which a wide differenco of opinion might
be suspected to exist?both favor a protective
tariff.
Said Mr.0. W.Wright: "Fromaselfieh
point of view, I wonld be for free trade.
We import oar coal from Australia, onr
iron?all old rails ana the like?from
Asia and Europe. Bat while free trade
would make the forty tons of coal we use
a day cost less and reduce other raw ma*
terial, I realise that thero is more weighty
reason I should favor protection. California
is for protection; our wool growers
could not exist without it.
"The idea that the coat of transportation
from foreign countries is sufficient difference
in our favor is erroneous. We bring
old rails from Bombay at abont $1 50 a
ton. Our chief competition in the Pacific
markets is with nails made in New England
and shipped from New York by
water. Even the Colorado mill cannot
ship into our section by rail. We meet
them at 8alt Lake City. We are not in
the Western Nail Association, but wo psy
wages on a sliding scale?juit now 21
cents with 5 per cent off. We sell all the
nails we make, but have to meet ruinously
)ow prices."
Said Mr. A. A. Wright: "Yes, we approve
the tariff?for a novel business
reason. 1 wish it was 100 per cent advalorem.
We are the only concern in this
country that make oar own needles, and
bo we par doty only on the coat to manufacture.
Others pay on the manufacturers'
profit aa well, bo you see, aa there are no
noedles made in thia country, the higher
the tarilf the greater onr .advantage over
competitors. Why are needles not
made here? Becauae American labor
is too high. Wo sell a needle which
yoa coald not hire a man to count
in .this country for the^jrico at which we
sell the needles. Fact, I assure you. Each
needle goes through eight stages, in each
of which thoro is more or leas hand labor.
Tho wagea paid abroad would astonish
you; for instance, to pay 300 laborers,
some of them skilled men, a week's wages,
it takes but X240?little over $1,000. Still,
outaide of the celfish viow, I leel that protection
is the thing for this country."

A little girl, Mabol Hatch, the eix-yesrold
daughter of George VST. Hatch, ongaged
aa a traveling salesman for J. B.
Shepherd, and raiding on ttoath York
street, Island, died yesterday forenoon
under the mofat distressing circumstances.
Last Friday evening the child went to a
store and purchased a penny whistle, a
flat tin affair about ss big around as a ail*
ver quarter. On her way home, running
with the whistle in her mouth, it slipped
downlinto her throat.
She reached home in great pain,and Dr.
Meyers was at once summoned. He failed
to extricate the whistle, and though other
physicians were summoned to his assistance,
no good could be accomplished, the
obstruction becoming wedged in the little
one's throat so low down thst no instrument
could reach it. Tracheotomy, or
cutting open the throat from the outade,
was then reeorted to, but equally in vain,
and yesterday after much suffering the
little one died from the effects.
The family have the deepest sympathy
of all their neighbors and acquaintances
in their peculiarly sad kmiction.
