I'lttmiii'Kuu, I'a., July 1.?The lockou in the iron and steel mill governed by the Amalgamated Association, which was inaugurated yesterday, will likely lie a repetition of the trouble with the iron iwwtrre in KSS5. This is, one by one the different firms will sign, and all the mills will he in operation before the end of the mouth. A number of prominent firms have already signed the scale, ineluding Oliver Bros. it Phillips, whe operate large plants on the South Side and in lower Allegheny. This firm employs fully .*1,000 men and has many Jargf contracts, among which is one foi the Traction Kailroad, which must bi fulfilled jus rapidly as possible and any ik'lay would occasion serious loss. Six other firms hare also signed, as followtf: (I<aughlitigand Junction Steel and rnjul liompitnv, m iuiu^u .umtuuu, Akron iron Company, at Akron, Ohio Apollo Iron and Steel Company, al Apollo; Cleveland Hardware Company, at Cleveland, U.; Aurora Iron and Steel Company, at Aurora, Ind., and the Mail' nnee Kolling Mill Company, at Toledo, <). Notices of these wales having been aigned were received at the heauquar ters of the Amalgamated Association last evening. Others are expected within tht! next few days and the iron workert are jubilant. They believe that somt linns may hold off until the annual repairs are (completed before signing, but expect all to be in lino before the end o the month. The signing of the scale b) Oliver Brothers >k Phillips, with somt very slight modifications; is taken as an indication that a break will be imulo by other large linns in this city. AN'OTHKR NOTA III.K EXCEPTION. Carnegie, Phipps & Co. refused to par tidpate with tho manufacturers in th( negotiations with the workmen on the scale, and it is believed they will sigr the Amalgamated scale within the com ing week. Yesterday Mr. George Lauder held a conference with tho mil committee at the Homestead steel plant and, although there are prospects of i settlement within the next few days nothing definite was done, and Mr JUuder refused to say anything regard inn the deliberations when spoken t< l.uit evening. It is believed, however, that the scald wj'Jl l>e signed at both the Twenty-nintl and Thirty-third street mills of this com pnny within the next few days, and i satisfactory arrangements can be inadi the scaltf at Homestead will be signed There Ke.ems to he a hitch at the latte place, the nature of which cannot l>< given, which will likely prevent a set tleinent for some time.

J The Turin* Imhuc?Sentiment for i if Protection Among Irinti | AmcrJcuiiN, ctc. to a Indiakatolih, Lvd., July 1.?Stephen B. Elkins has been in this city several days, and in the jjuest of Gen. Harrison. ^ In speaking of the Chicago nominations, | ^ Mr. Elkins said they had been well received all over tlio country, and with 10 even more enthusiasm than was expected. J1 "The ticket," said Mr. Elkins, "is a ,t! growing one, and will grow. It has all a- the elements of strength. Apart from General Harrison coming from a doubtful SUite, his life and character and pubc. He service furnish an excellent platform 10 for the contest. His life forces a contest against him to be one of principle. Personalities, so far as ho is concerned, are to be eliminated from the campaign." NEW YORK VSITED. l" Mr. Elkins commented on the fact 10 that New York continuously supported jj Mr. Harrison in the convention, and ^ said this action was noticeable to the t- whole country; that ho was the only man upon whom the dilierent factions in Vow Vrtrlr ontilfl hfi united. This of itself augurs well for^the ticket and offers personal hope for aueceHS. "In my opinion Gen. Harrison will largely increase the Republican vote in it the country districts in that State, and n he will get the full party vote in New ? York city and Kings county." b Mr. Elkins alluded to the ratification ? meeting in Now York Friday night li saying: a "'It is noticeable that at that meeting on tho platform were Patrick Ford, editor of tho Irith World, and many , leading representatives of the various J local labor organizations. The ? presence of Mr. Ford indicates 5 that tho Irish and laboring peo,f pie of the east understand the issue of protection. There is no more ai dent advocate of that principle in the country J than he, and his presence there has mJ spired and encouraged leading Irishmen 0 throughout the country. This I have ? found to be true, especially in Nebraska, ' Missouri and Illinois. Mr. Ford is a great man, and is a power in politics. 1 VETERANS AM) COMlitl) MEN 11 l'njr Their ItenperHi Co Gen.

Last night a body of veteran soldiers of the - Union, not representing any particular e organization, called at General Harrison's residence to pay their respects. In r reply to the address of their spokesman y General Harrison said: r CoMHADX MlTCHKLL AND FlCLLOW SoLDr iers:?I sincerely thank you for this evidcnco of your" respect and comradeship. I am very certrln that there is no class whose confidence and respect I e more highly prize or moro earnestly covet than that of tho soldiers who, in . the great war from '01 to '05, upheld the " loved banner of our country and brought l' it home in honor. The comradeship of s the war will never end until our lives ? end. The fires in which our friendship ? was united and welded were too hot for the bond over to bo broken. Wesym** patliize with each other in the glory of n the common cause for which we fought. l8 We went not as partisans but as patriots v into this strife which involved tho ?r national life. I am sure that no army lias ever assembled in the world's hisv tory that was gathered from higher iinf, pulses than the army of the Union. ? [Cries of "Bight"] \ it was xo SOItniD impulse, no hope of spoils that induced these ? men to sunder the tender associations of home and forsaking their business pursuits to look into the grim face of death with unblanched cheek and firm and o resolute eyes. h They were the kind of men who drew _ their impulse from the high spring of . truth and duty. Tho army was great in * its assembling. It came with an impulse e that was majestic and terrible. It was as great in its muster out as in the bnla liant work which had been done in the i- field. When the war was over the solg dier was not left at the tavern; every <8 man had in some humble place a chair )f by some fireside where he was loved and is to which his heart went forward with a d quick step. [Applause.] And so this j- great army that had rallied for the do:r fenso and preservation of tho country l- was disbanded without tumult or riot s. or any public disturbance. It had covered the country with tho mantle of its protection when it needed it as the li snows of spring cover the early vegeta> tion, and when the warm sun of peace il shone upon it, it disappeared as the snow r- gunk into the earth to refresh and vivify r. the summer's growth. . They found their homes; they carried their brawn and intellect into all tlie r. pursuits of peace to stimulate tlicm and lift them up; they added their great imiwtluit tn flint crrnnt.

[Applause.] Hut in nothing was I,, this war greater than in that we led a )r race into freedom and brought those whom we had conquered into the strugie gle into the full enjoyment of a restored ,c citizenship, and Hhnre again with them a. the responsibilities and duties of a rect stored Government. [Applause.] r. I thank you most sincerely for this ar evidence of your comradeship. I thank m especially those friends who differ with of me in their political views that they have | a put these things aside to-night and have ti* come hero to give me a comrade's greetid jug. [Applause.] May 1 have the privpe ilego now, without detaining you longer, et of taking by the hands every soldier here? [Applause.] Later in the evening tbo Harrison club, a colored organization, called, and I in response to an address from their leader General Harrison said: 110 Gentlemen of the Harrison Club?I assure you that I have a sincere respect for and a very deep interest in the colored people of the United States. My n memory as a boy goes bock to the time WI1SS SLAVERY KAIHTKI> i'- jn the Southern Suites. I was bora I1" upon the Ohio river, which wan tho boundary between the free State of Ohio m and tho slave State ol Kentucky. Some ot my earliest recollections relate to the stirring and dramatic interest which was now and then excited by the pursuit ot er an escaped slave, or the hopo of offered rewards. I remember when a boy wan!"" daring through my grandfather's orchard 3a- at North Bend, anil in pressing through >ce hu alder thicket that grew on its margin, 'or I Haw sitting in the midst a colored man Jm with the frightened look of a fugitive In "d his eve and attempting to satisfy his hunger with some walnuts he had jjatliered. He noticed my approach with a are tierce, fttartled look to see whether I waa likely to betray him. I waa frightened myself, and left bim in some trepidation* but I kept his secret. [Cries of "Good, good."] I havo seen the progress which has been made in the legislation relating to your race and the progress that the race itself has made since that day. When 1 came to Indiana to reside the unfriendly black code was in force. My memory goes hack to the time when colored witnesses were tirst allowed to appear in court in this State to testify in cases where white men were parties. Prior to that time, as you know, you had been excluded from the right to tell in court, under oath, your side of the story in any legal controversy with white men. [Cries of "I know that"] The laws permitted your coming hero. In every way ?'ou were at a disadvantage, even in the ree States. I have lived to see this unfriendliness removed from our statute | books, and the unfriendly sections of j our State Constitution repealed. I rejoice in all that you have accom| plished since you have been free. I recall no scene more pathetic than thut which I have often seen about our campI fire. An aged man, a fugitive from slaver}', had found freedom in onrcamp. After a day of hard work, when the taps had sounded and the lights in the tents were out I have seen him with thespelling book that the chaplain had given | him lvimr nrone unon the ground tax ing his ofd eyes and pointing his hard- i ened finger to the letters of the alphubet.1 , ub he endeavored to open to his eloudeu | mind the avenues of information nnd light. I am glad to know thnt that same desire to increase and enlarge your infor-1 mation possesses the race to-day. It is the open way for the race to that perfect emancipation which will remove remaining prejudices and secure to you in all parts of the land an equal and just participation in the government of this country. It cannot much longer bo withheld from you. RITCHIE COUNTY REPUBLICANS Elect Delegate* to Various Convention*. Kntliu?la*m for HarrUon. Special Corrtrpondtnct of the Intelligencer. Ritchie C. II., W. Va., June 29.?The Republican County Convention which met here to select delegates to the State, Congressional, Senatorial and Judicial conventions was largely attended and was one of the most representative bodies of Republicans ever seen here. The convention was culled to order by R. II. Frier, of the county committee, who reported C. K. Iladdox for temporary chairman and Hon, J. M. McKinney for secretary. It was moved to make the temporary organization permanent, but the men favoring Davis for Judjtf of the Fourth Circuit, which was the bone of contention, moved to substitute Jacob Clammer. After much crimination and recrimination a vote was taken by tellers and resulted in a victory for the Morris men, Haddox being elected by a vote of 153 to 92. Committees were then appointed and selected the necessary number of delegates to each convention. The delegation for Governor will likely be divided between Duval and McLean, while Morris has tho call for judicial honors. The resolutions were stirring and patriotic and were adopted amia great enthusiasm. J. S. Archbold, who served in Gen. Harrison's brigade during tho late unpleasantness, addressed tlie convention brietly and his remarks were rcccived with great applause. Iiitchie county is well pleased with the admirable ticket named at Chicago and may bo put down for her usual large Republican majority, only a little larger than usual. SICK OF FRKK TKADK. FacU About Kngliinil'n l'ullry?An Invent IKut Ion HuKffetted. Pirrsnunon, Pa., July 1.?The interview with S. It.

Tho gentleman's radical views on economic questions, and particularly in favor of protection, as affecting England, were somewhat surprising to many. To one Pittsburgher, however, they were not. Ho is F. 'A. S." Peregrino, of 24(5 Fifth avenue. As Mr. Peregrino was said to have personal knowledge of the facts, a reporter interviewed him yesterday. He said: "Having had from youth up unusual opportunities for the study of this question in that country, having sat, as it were, at the feet of the Giinaliels of the respective political parties ami heard the best arguments pro and eon on the question, having watched and carefully noted tho fatal effects upon tho working people of the principles of free trade, I thoroughly concur in Mr. S. Kilbeck's remarks. To-day there is a noticeable alwenee of that energy and fire that characterized the utterrances of the free trader of a few years ai?o. Whereas formerly the free trader held out that England'a greatness and commercial prospurity could only bo maintained by freeing her ports to (ill, to-day he approaches the question apologetically, and were it not for the attendant indignity he would beat an ignominious retreat. "Why not adopt protection, then?" asked the reporter. "The English peonlo are owontially conservative?alow of action. It is coming, however, slowly bat surely, The workingiuan, realizing the blessings of free trade in scanty cupboards ami scantier wardrobes, i'h beginning to think; and front my knowledge of him.

As a member of the largest workingmen'B political societies iu the county of Worcester, I may | nlotm (ft knnur liiin " "Isn't this a pointer for free trade advocates in the United States?" "Let the free trade party appoint a a commiHHion of investigation and send over to that country. Your humble servant will offer his services to such a commission, and if, after a couple of months' tour, the most rabid of them is not converted from his suicidal views, then there is no hope of that man." iik (TAvETTKHAT Senator Stockhrhlgo Show* Ills Faith lu Harrison'* Election.

He answered: "Like the ticket? I should art Wn'll i?arrw nvflrv X'urtlmrn State and gain two or three Congressmen in Michigan." "Hal ha! ha!" laughed Host Chittenden, and there wasWpercent of sarcasm in the langh. "I'll ten you what I'll do," said the sturdy Senator. "I'll just bet you the best horse I own agaiust a Michigan mustang that Harrison will be the next President of the United States." "That's a good bet," suggested Harry Tillman; "the Senator's got a $30,000 stallion somewhere in his stahles." " 'Ti8 a Rood bet and I'll take it," said Chittenden.

MORUAXTOVVN'S BOOM. Taking Step* to Secure the KutablUUmon ot Mnuufactorie*. Special Dispatch to the InteUigrnctr. Morgan-town, W. Va., July 1.?An otber large and important meeting o the citizens of Morgantown wu.s held a! the Court House Saturday afternoon, tc hear the report of the committee sent b) them to Pittsburgh to confer with tht gentleftien who are at the head of a new glass enterprise, concerning the location of their plant at Morgantown. lion. George C. Sturgiss was spokesman ol the committee, and made some very interesting statements. He wiid that the Pittsburgh people do not ask the people of Morgantown to take stock in their enterprise, but simply want a plot of ground furnished them sufficiently large enough for their plant, and located some where near the river and in close proximity to the Baltimore ?fc Ohio railroad. It was learned that Findlay, Ohio, had made similar inducements, but that they exhibited a preference for Morgautown. The greatest obstacle in the way ol our people is the uncompleted state of the Black Bottle Railroad. It is along this lino that tho vast beds of white sand and clay are deposited, and, as it is, no fn<>ilitu>n fnr frnnonnrtntinn are afforded. If this one plant could be induced to locate here the piping of the nutural gas to Moreantown would bo an assured fact. .No immediate action was taken as regards tho new enterprise, but, that the opening of the Monongahela river for transportation by the Government may be accelerated, the following resolutions were adopted: Jtoolved, That the committee hereto! fore appointed be increased by tho adI dition of lion. John J. Brown and Dr. George B. Morris, and that it by suitable means request our Representatives in the Congress of tho United States to insist upon the appropriation in the River and Harbor bill now before it for tho purchase of the locks and dams on tho Monongahela river.

Pittsiiusail, Pa., July 1.?The eccle-1 ' siastical authorities of Rome have at lust taken cognizance of the troubles and dissensions at the Ursuline Academy, and, acting under instructions troni the ?.??.! nu. 1. !,? Iiiftino to whose exertions is duo the existence of the academy, yesterday carried the case into the civil courts. A bill in equity was tiled in Common Pleas Court No. 1 by J.S. Ferguson, yesterday, under the title of "The Urouliue Young Ladies' Academy of Pittsburgh vs. Richard Phelan, Jjiura Frcund and Madame Marie M.Gertrudo(in religion), known to the world as Elizabeth Burns." The bill sets forth that the plaintiff is a corporation having (or its purpose the promotion of Christian and liberal education of various branches of science, polite literature and the line arts. The ucademy was incorporated under the act ot J87S, and the following officers elected: President, Mere Marie Alphonse; Vice President, 8. H. Gustavo; i Treasurer, H. M. Kminunnuel; .Secretary, 8. M. Angelo; Assistant Secretary, 8. M. Gonzaque. On August 17, 1887, Bishop Phelan , went to the ucademy, and after calling , the ladies together for religious services, ; announced that he had deposed the Lady i Superior, Madame Marie Alphorise, from her oflice of Director, President of the , Hoard of Directors and General Manager , and Superintendent of the academy, and appointed Madame Marie St. Gertrude | to succeed her. The ladies claim that ( by the terms of their charter they alone \ have the power of governing the ucademy, and that Bishop Phelan's supervi- , sion is merely ministerial and not judi- < cial, and that ho exceeded his powers , and infringed upon their rights when he removed Madame Alphonseund substitu- ; ted Madame Gertrude. It is also alleged that Madame Gertrude removed four of j the ladies who taught in the academy j and substituted paid teachers, which is : contrary to the principles of the institu- \ tion, and, furthermore, that she has no- j tifieu the bank in which the account of ' the academy is kept, not to pay any money to the checks or orders of the plaintiffs. j xue v>uuri in uskuu iu irauu nu ujjuuu- i tion restraining Bishop Phelan and Madame Gertrude with any further inter- i ference with the affaire of tlie academy, and to declare that Madame Alphonse it* , the legal head of the institution.

Attempt after attempt was made to lay hands on the night marauders, but so well did they cover their tracks that all previous attenipts proved futile.

Bbiuin, July 1.?Various rumors are being circulated concerning the malady of the new Emperor of Germany. It is stated, for instance, that he is suffering from cancer in the car, and the possibility of his early death is already being discussed by premature writers. The illness the Emperor is suffering from is not cancer, but an alllic.tion of which the nature is not generally known. He ha* been affected by it for a long time, and during the mortal illness of the late Einperor William he paid regular visits to a certain well known specialist in Under den Linden. It is not a trouble which threatens?for the present, at least?to cause the German throne to again be come vacant. Uln<mtai>e Will Stand Aloof.

Saturday afternoon an alleged game of ball was played at Island Park between tho Wheelings and that promising amateur organization, tho Cyclones. Six innings wero played during which Wheeling scored 27 times and allowed the Cyclones to make 5 scores.

In Saturday's game, Keenan, the Pittsburgher who was to bo given a trial by Wheeling, pitched for the Cyclones. In the first two innings he wax touched up for 12 hits, which netted 15 runs. \Y. L. Addy, the Bethany boy, pitched for Wheeling in tho first two inuings atul tho Cyclones were blanked. The pitchers were then exchanged, and tho Cyclones succeeded in making a f?sw runs.

The superior batting aud superb field work gave them an easy victory. Kimber pitched an excellent game," there being but three clean hits inude off his delivery, while Monroe's balls were lined out at opportune moments by the Wheeling slugirers.

This week is likely to see her get still closer to that coveted place. The fact that Sandusky was able to defeat Columbus yesterday, together with the further fact that Lima is putting up a weak game, leads to the hope that Sandusky will be able to pull Lima's percentage aown in tho Fourth of July series tbey are to '"'"fiicclinp will have to work hard to keep ht'r plaee this week. Zancsville is but u few points behind and is playing a very strong game. The Kickapoos were Wheeling's meat on the last Fourth, and it is hoped that they may be again taken in this year. Tliey make their first appearanee here to-day. To-morrow the two clubs will go to Steubenville to play a game. Wednesday they will play two games here. Special attention is called to the advertisement of these games. Both teams will play for all that is in them and the sport should draw large crowds. Sandusky will follow Zancsville.
