Captain Torrey, of the Moseley, reports that in latitude 80:10, longitude 71:40, while hove to in a severe gale, he saw the Collins hove to and showing d is treat signals. He launched a boat with great difficulty and rik, and the men had nearly reached tbe Collins when she gave a lurch to starboard and went down with her Captain and five of her crew.

Din's Report, Shows That the Nation , Prospered In the Dying Year. - A year of easrmotn business close with a tittle more thin the seasonable dullness. Transaction much beyond the average la September and October prepared for some slackening of trade in November and Decem ber, which ha been increased by tariff un certainties, by several strikes of importance and by a speculative advance in prices. Un uwal pressure for money daring toe fall, on the other hand, caused adJnstuMoti which prevent sever pressure as the year cloaca, and except at a few Western point, the money markets are comparatively easy with collection almost everywhere fair and at most points reasonably good. Holiday trade has generally been large, and the recent change la weather bring greater activity In soon branches. But the fending strike and co.itroversies about wages and uncertainties as to the future in soma of the largest industries operate unfavorably. Ease of money and belief that the Reading strike would not last have helped stocks to Improve until yesterday, when the day open td with some reaction. Hope of activity and advance after New Years sustain prices, but the great movement of foreign capital hither ward tor investment has ceased, at least for the time. In November, trade statistics indicate that the outgoing slightly exceeded She incoming goods and capital December sxports at New York, 1-2 per cent below last veer's, against imports 1-7 per cent below, Indicate that at least $15,000,000 in goods and sash has probably gone abroad, and foreign ales have exceeded purchases of securities! If continued, this movement will affect the placing of securities for cew roads, and thus influence great in dustries. The dying year has seen 12,734 miles of railway finish!, making the mile age for the United States 150,710, but changes of freight rates in the West tend steadily downward, lessening . the prospect for building next year. The Pennsylvania reports a decrease of $170,090 in not earnings for November and the. Erie a decreasa of $34,331 The iron industry, after the largest yeir's output on record, is rapidly cutting down production prices, and, at many points, wages. The Thomas Company is expected to announce $21 as its price for the brat iron. Since March the average of all grades at Philadelphia has declined $1.43, and of rails $0. Sale of 30,000 tons Alabama and Ten nessee iron are reported, but no sales of rails, for which next year's orders cover over 300, 000 tons. ; The cotton industry records for the year larger production, sales and profits than for 1888, and the year closes with an excellent demand, stocks well cleaned up and many makes sold well ahead. But the woolen manufacture . is described as .having about the most unsatisfactory year it ever experienced, '' with business smaller and profits smaller than last year's, and foreign agents are again offering heavy woi steds 5 to 10 per cent below last year's prices. Enor mous importations have left a large stock of dress goods on bands; overcoatings are mov ing fairly, but fine goods at 5 to 10 per cent, decline. The sales of wool at Boston for the last quarter fall 23 per cent below last year's. Coal production has been the largest on rec ord, but the market closes with some excite ment, the Lehigh strikeoontinulng, while dis patches affirm that Reading miners will strike Janu try L The grocery trade has been very large for the year, and closes with fair activ ity, notwithstanding the speculation in coffee and the rise in sugar following reports of a decrease in beet products. Provis ions hold the recen- advance; beef is again a shade dearer, and there has been a rise of six cents in oil Cotton, in spite of small receipts, is a shade lower, but breadstuffs have risen, wheat and earn about 1 c int each. The Treasury has ad led $714 003 to its de posits with hanks, and $1,630,000 to tha cir culation during the week. It has now in creased :he circulation of coin and piper about $84,003,000 sinoa July 1, and $130,000, 003 since July 1, 18S5. The incomplete re turns of Clearing House exchanges indicate an aggregate for the year exceeding $51,000, 003,030, with a g tin of about 4 per cent over last year, but November showed a small de crease, aud in December the decrease in pay ments has bean considerable. The year's return of failures reported shows a decrease of two hundred in number for the yoar, but a large incrarsa of $53,030,033 in liabilities as follows: 1837, numbsr 9,631; lia bilities, $107,503,941; avenge, $17,392; 1886, number, 9,834; liabilities $114,614,119; aver age $11,051.

COSTLY. AMUSEMENT. WHAT STRIKES HAVE COST. 1 be Report of the Labor Burean on the Labor Trouble of tbe Last Six Year. The Commissioner of Labor, Carroll D, Wright, transmitted hi third annual report to tbe Secret. ry of the Interior. This report via e entirely to ttrikos and lock oata occur ing in the United St itec for the period of six yean, beginning Janu try 1, 1881, and ending December 31, 1886. Mr. Wright say that the industrial de pratsioos which have been so frequsnt in tats country since 1877, really establish tbe period a one of strike and lock-outs. Tbe manufacturing establishment is tiksn a tbe unit in all matter, rather thin tlu strike it self. The names of establishment have not been given, for great apparent reasons, but the localities and the iuduiiries to which the establishments beloug are all clearly specified. Following is a synopsis of the repart: In the six years uinntioned strikes occurred in 22,336 establishauats anl lock-out i in 2, 182. The strikes are divided by years as fol lows: in K1, 2,028; in 1CJ, 2,105; iu J, 2,759; in nH, 2,367; in "85, 2.381; and iu '86,9,893. Since January 1, W, there hare been lew tl an 5,000 strikes, 3,030 ot them being in the first six months. About 75 per cent of tbeu strikes and 91 per cent of the lock-out oc curred in New York, Pennsylvania, Massa chusetts, Onioand Illinois, these Stat. con taining 49 per cent of the establishments an 1 58 per cent of the capital eugagel in manu factures. There were 1,318,621 persons en gaged in the strikes and 159,943 locked out Of the strikers nearly 89 per c ut. jre males, and about 11 per cent females; while of those locked-out 69 per cent were miles and 81 percent, females. Of the strikes 10,407 su; ceeded, 3,004 were partly successful, while 8,910 failed. As nearly as could be learned the loss to employes through strikes was $51,816,165, and that through lockouts was $8,132,717, or a total wage loss ot $59,048,83; $3,&i5,057 were expended in assistance to strikers, so far as ascertainable. The employers' losses through strikes for the six years amounted to $30,733,688, and through lockouts to $3, 433,261, a total of $34,164,914. The chief burden under strikes was borne by 13 industries, viz: boots and shoes, 3j2 establishm.-nts; brickmaking, 478; building trades, 6,060; clothing, 1,728; cooperage, 4S4; food preparations, 1,419; furniture, 491; lum ber, 395; metals and me talis goods, 1,585; mining, 2,060; stone, 463;tobacco, 3,959; trans portation, 1,478; or a total nuinoer of 19,957; being about 90 per cent of the whole number of establishments subjected to strikes. In lock-outs five trad, s bore 80 per cent of the whole burden. They were as follows: Boots and shoes, 155 establishments; building trades. 531 ; clothing, 773; metal and metalic goods, 76; and tobacco, 2.J6; or a total of 1,701. For the two classes of disturbances, strikes and lockouts, these trades that have been named affectel 22,432 estableshments, or about 90 per cent of the whola number involved. The facts given by the bureau regarding the strikes occurring prior to 1881, aud also those relative to legislation and the decisions of courts concerning strikes, combinations, conspiracies and boycotts, constitute an ex ceedingly valuable portioo of the report MANUFACTURING NOTES.

The question of a fuel supply rathe Ohio Valley J regarded by om aa becoming very serions one. . The long continuad drouth and the proba bility of iu continuance, with the small tocks of ooal from Pittsburgh, the main ouroe of supply, is causing much anxiety among those who failed earlier in the wintel to make provision. There ia no probability, however, of a coal famine, such a ha been experienced in to past, owing to the supply from the Kentucky minea LouUviUe consumes, ;npon an average 70,000 bushel a day. Ordinarily by far th greater portion of tbiii Pittsburg, but at present all of tbe dealer of the city together do not hold in stock more than 25,000 busheli of Pittsburg coal, aud it require a ten fool river at Pittsburg to let the awaiting fleet of 10,000,000 bushels out More than half ot this will come to Louisville, but the probabil ity of a rise in the Ohio is small, good author ities expressing the belief th t a freesvnp will oon occur, which will delay relief from Pitt burg untilsometinie in Febiuiry. In the meantime the price ot coai has ad vanced nearly 100 per cent, and the poor ar suffering corretpoodingty. Daring the past the railroads nav brought to the city daily an average of 40,000 busheli, anl tbe man- agers say this can be increased sufficiently to supply the demand. Notwithstanding the statement of the railroad authorities, every coal dealer in the dty 1 from four tp seven days behind hi orders. Summing up the situation, it will be seen that the circumstance) demonstrate Louis ville' good fortune in having within 125 mile an Inexhaustible supply ot ooal accessi ble to the railroads, and that the worst fea ture is hardship to the poorer classes by the high prices, which will probably go still high er, owing to the competition from Pittsburg being shut off. AN ANARCHIST CALL TO ARMS. Wprkinjrmen Urged to Use Force and ' Revenge the Chicago Exeutions. The Social paper, the "Volts Zeitung," of New York, published . the following blool thirsty circular in German and English and copies were distributed along the line of tht railroads and in the docks by some mysterious agency: "Fellow workmen, the hour has cornel The agencies of science must play a part in the struggle of the future! Yesterday it was the slaughter of our comrades at Chicago. To-day it is the assaasinatian of 60,000 of our brother cn the Philadelphia & Reading railroad sys tem. True, the sword is tbe weapon of cir cumstances, but their victims perish all the same. Do not waste your force on the scab they are only the effect of the present damnable cammercial and compe'itive ays tern. Destroy by all the agencies at your command the direct representatives of tbe system the Corvins, the Maxwells and the Goulds I Let the torch, the bomb or the bullet strike them now. Let all they possess to tbe flames be given. Hound them night and day. "This strike most be made tbe war of the classes against the masses! "Brothers, remember Chicago and your onth.."- The circular, it is learned, was read at sev eral meetings of workingmtsn in thU city, but it is said to be . the intention to distribute it extensively throughout ' the country. The Socialists say the circular is the work of Pinkerton detective an 1 is intended to creati prejudice against the strikers. Some workingmen think it is the work of Anarch ists anxious to create a general uprising and use it to take vengetnee for the Chicago exe cutions. THE COLD BLAST. Rapid Fall of the Tempera tare to Points Below Zero. The blizzard started in Manitoba on Satur day, and on Christmas howled through Mon tana, Dakota and the Western territories.

It had little effect on railroad traffic, the Burling ton and Missouri reporting one freight train snowed under on the Schuyler branch but all traina on time along the main line. On the Union Pacific the greatest delay re ported Was three hours on the eistbound "Flyer," all other traini picking up lost time after the storm abated. To-day agents all abng the line west of Omaha report weather cold and calm, with everything on time. Trains arrived late from Chicago and will delay west-bound "Flyer" forty minutes starting. At St Vincent, Minnesita, the thermome ter regis tere 1 36 below, at Morehead 26 bo at Duluth 14 below, at Davenport, Des Moinvs and La Cross each 8 below, at Omaha 8, an j at Chicago 2 below zero. EGGED OUT OF TOWN. A Man Who Was Mobbad for Selling Liquor Sues for Damages. Henry Hackathorn, of La Grange county, Ind., has arrived at Indianapolis, in charge of a Federal Marshal, ot Ft Wayne. Hack athorn lived in the little town of Valentine, La Grange county, where he kept a shoe shop, and as a side issue.sold liquor in bottles. This became so notorious and resulted in so much drunkenness in the village, that about two weeks ago, a crowd of fifty or more men and women attacked his place of business, tore it to pieces, and drove him out of town with clubs and bad eggs. He went to Li Grange, and since has instituted suits against ten ot the leading citizens, demanding $10, 000 In each cose, for the deitruction of his place of business, and the injuries to himself. It is understood also, that the Grand Jury has token a hand in the matter, and has in dicted forty or fifty people on a charge of riot ing. Some of these, in turn, have had Hack athorn arrested for selling liquor without a license. Very bitter feeling has resulted from the matter, and there is likely to be further trouble. : Train Robber Captured. L. U. King and J.
