OTTAWA FKEE1TKADEK : 8ATUKDA1, JULY 2b, 1877.
8 i TRX IYfERESTS INVOLVED. Among the many hundred columns of news' AID'JOg IUB 1UHUJ uuuuivu v..- - paper comment and reflection the great strike ... i i r has giveo birtu to, we uave mei uouc suuS more directly to Iho marrow of the question than the following which wc cm irom Satur day's Chicago Tribune : The interests that are jeopardized by this strike are too vast nnd far-reaching to sufler It to continue long. If It he not speedily end ed, the commercial world will rise nnd em phasize the demands of the Company that these strikers shall uo longer interfere with tho free movements of freight trains, and that they must settle their grievances with the railroaus in some other manner than by seiz ing upon tho property ot shippers and hold ing it while in transit. They are clogging the wheels of general business. They are stop, ping the shipment of the grain crop of the West. They are disarranging business rela tions of the East and West, and throwing them into confusiou. They aro menacing the business world witn the loss of millions of dollars. They are virtually putting their hands Into tue public treasury, and Uiey are grossly violating the public laws. Undoubt edly the reduction of wages is a hardship which will bear heavily upon the strikers nnd their tamilies, and entail upon them the necessity of the most rigid economy in order to pay their way, but how can it be helped? There are two sides to this question as to ev ery other. If the Baltimore fc Ohio Koad were in a prosperous cond'tion, if business so crowded its trains as to demand more men, if tho road was paying even areaionable proiit, the Company would not reduce wages, but on tho other hand would undoubtedly Increase them. But the Company is in ho such flat tering condition as this. On the contrary, Its stock has rapidly depreciated, Its floating debt has increased, Its business has fallen off, and its future has grown so doubtful that a re duction ot wages as a matter of economy was not simply politic but imperative. The road had reached a crisis where salaries must be reduced, or the Company must stop salaries altogether by stopping business. The Ualti more & Ohio Koad is not singular in this re spect. The tollowing ta'ue, showing the de preciation in leading railroad stocks during the month of June, this year and last,t:lls its own story of the terrible shrinkage in the value of railroad property : Ihpreiia J'litr '.), June '.I. linn. 1HTC Pennsylvania Central M New York Central ll Illinois Central rMiiliulelplilfl A: Kcnilin .. 41 Delaware, Lackawanna A: Western ...Urt Morris Sc Essex H' Delaware A Hudson Canal lO'.i New Jersey Central M Chlcairo & Northwest .... 40 Chicago ft Northwest pre. f..rrell fill 1ST". Vtr cmt. J! I '.'.' Co 21) 71 i;.-) :!. !' 411 2D Again, that the reduction of wages did hot in reality brin,? them below the market rate, is shown by the rush of men willing to take the place ot the strikers. If these men can aflord to take the vacant places at low wages and wait for better times, certainly tho strik ers can. Whether they can or not, however, matters little in ihia case. However much tho public may :i'y the men, or sympathize with tlu ir iamilii s, or acknowledge the hard ship of a reduction of wages in these hard times, it can have n.) sympathy wit i the man ner in which these misguided men have set about to remedy their urievanee, and it will recognize what theso men can nut or will not recognize, that the roads have reached such a depreciated condition that economy in ev ery department is not only prudent but a ni.itli.r of lifn and death to them. The out. c.nmo. of the orewnt rmcrucnev can admit of no compromise. Either tho strikers must stop or the roads must stop. As between these necessities, the authorities must quell thedis turbanco and bo guard the business of trans Tviriniinn Hint tin interests of the public shall iint Miller. If these men cannot .work at the proposed reduction, they must step out of the -way and let others. If they will not step out vnlilnlunU' llll'l' tllliqt 111' llllllio tl) bV I'ofCC. There is no other alternative, and the remedy should bo applied promptly and effectually belore lue gtriito spreaus uu overuiucuuuuy L'nder tho Appellate Court law Chicago is in ),.. an onin.ll'iin rniii't i,f ii4 nwn. and IU J I . I v .. 1 J " - - - - - 1 each of 'the present judicial grand divisions is to have an additional one. Of tho nppel lale courts outside of Chicago the present clerks of the Supremo Court, in their respec tive grand divisions, nrs made clerks ex-ofll. cio for the next two years, after which there will be tt separ i'e clerk to elect for the np pellate court in inch grand division. In Cook county, however, there is a clerk to elect fur the appellate court in August, nt the jome time wiih tho judges, and tt gives us great pleasure to note that Woouiit iiv M. Tatlou, the former excellent nnd popular clerk of the supreme court, will probably en counter no opposition as candidate for the office. Mr. Taylor not only made an admlra hie clerk of the supreme court, an office the duties of which are the same as those ot clerk of the appellate court, but he is one of those deserviu. ircnerous. big-hearted men by whom the people are alwuys the gainers for putting them into such places. BUSINESS OUTLOOK. Wc are in receipt of the quarterly circular for July of the mercantile agency of Dum & t'o., of which the following is a brief con. 'Jensatiou : Tho mercantile failures for the first half of the present year 1.1 stated 4.T40 in number, In volving liabilities of $!!i,;0,0U, ns against 4.G00, involving .10i,4l5,000 in the first half of NIG, and :J.5J.', involving $70,7$4.(00 ' the corresponding period of lbTo. The cir cular states that the business condition of the tountry is only slowly improving; the signs of advancement are few, while in thecbanges In values the tendency is generally down wmd. It groups tLc various forms of public indebtedness In the country as follows: Na tional debt. ,0,0j0,O0); state debts, f 37-V 0. Of): municipal debts, ifl.OOO.OW.OOl); rail riul debts, t'l.OXVO.OX); Indebtedness to hanks, 1,003,00,000; loans by insurance and o"icr mortjrafe machinery, $jiH),t0'3,00J to ul, $7,:i75,0O0.,0U. Thu interest on this at C percent is $43 V OO.OJO a year, which Is great er Mia the surplus cotton and grain product rtti-country put together; tn other words, If the country could git rid of this interest by s-vcriHcing iis nrplus cotton and grain crops ii ouM profit by the transaction. The ar-ifum- ui which the circular intends to make Is limt one great obstacle in the way of a re s'"rtirn to prosperity is the necessity for ap inoprlating so large a proportion of the cam r, net turnings to tho payment of interest n i debts.

A Fish Sronv. Quiucy claims t' have the champion Munchausen of the ae in the auther of tho following fish story which is telgraphed from that city to the St. Louis Globe-Uemorriit: I hasten to inform you of a peculiar natural curiosity that is now at Quincy, and which will shortly be exhibted in St.Louis. Yester day morning a party of five gentlemen started upon a fishing excursion trom (Juincy. up the river to a bridge which crossed tho Mis sissippi about one mile north of that city. One of the party, on his first cast brought to the surface a peculiar fish, which I will endeavor to describe, and which must attract tho atten tion of naturalists in this and every other iriia piuhtv-two nouuds. lias a wplLrlitvidnnpil ik'hiI: has a cood head of slraight, black hair, and Its general features would indicate a considerable amount of in telligence. After great difllculty we succeed ed in landing it into tho boat without injury, and brought'it to tne Missouri House, on Main street, where it was seen by a great number of tho citizens, who can vouch for the truth oi my statement. Hut, one or the mo3t wonder ful things ot all, a Portugese gentleman hap pened to be passing at the time, and heard it uttering some sounds which attracted his at tention, and he was completely astonished when ho found tho fish was able to converse in tho vernacular of his childhood, and by bia interpretation we were enabled to learn something of his family history and genealo gy which has been handed down to him by tradition. Homo 500 years ago a Portugese sailor, who had been brought up in the busi ness of coral and pearl fishing, got overboard in a storm on the Pacific, made the acqtiaint ance of a mermaid whom he met in tho At lantic, and established a colony on a coral rr-rnn iiirt malt of Florida, and this stranec creature traces his origin biclt to that extra ordinary union. The La Salle Democrat gives the following par ticulars of the burning of Williamson & ITolnies'6 coal shaft, near that city, on Monday last: Sltuateil about two miles northeast of La Salle, is a siimli eoul mine known as Sharp's shaft, which Is o:i-a unrt operated by Williamson tV Holmes, one "f the leadinir grocery houses of this citv. There were only l'S men who worked aliout tiie shaft, nil tolil. lletween the hours of 12 and 1 o'clock, last Monday moiTlng, a person wliu was passim; tho place discovered the Bliaft to bu on lire. The alarm was at onco given, and those who lived In the immediate vicinity hur ried to tho spot. There were at the time four men working in the mine, and their only avenue of escape was up through the burning shaft. With no facilities at hand for extinguishim; "res t!.u fate of the men In the mine below was sealed. Tlielr doom wus certain their death inevitable. Wlien thu shaft had ceased burnini; from hick cf matcrluls. procurations weru made to t:ke out the bodies or tho men. Hopes were procured and a miner descended tho siuokini; shaft. Three bodies were found close by the bottom wnere the cafe stops. They were nearly covered with water and were quite ueiui. aearca wus un'u imidu fur the fourth man. He was just breath ing when found and his actions denote thut he must be a man of extraordinary nerve and cool- m-s in lime oi pein. Ascerisiiiins iw i-.iune m the danger, he had retired about 40 feet from the luitt.mii of the shaft and had built a wall so in to keep the smoke from li'.m us much ns possible. t he name ol tins man is .lames iiousny, aim u is the opinion of his physician thut ho will re cover. Thu names of the dead miners ami llieir residences were as follows: (Jritlln Keese, Hogs. buck: Heiilamln Dybiill, Kockwell; 1'atrick liyrne, Smies' Minft, nil in the township of La s.illi. Tlu'n men were all married, and leave families in dependent circumstances. It is sup- posed thai llio lire was in worK oi an iiii-imhii- ary. The loss ol Messrs. t iiiiatnsna iv iioiim-f, is "between :!.OO0 aud 4,000; no Insurance. This Is the saddest calamity which has befallen this eKy in a long tunc. Over a thousand bushels of grasshoppers were destroyed in the single county of Free born. Minn., this vear. It took two hundred barrels of coal tar and a ton of sheet iron to do it. Hut the 'hopper was conquered nnd n, splendid wheat crop saved. The Sirtnlor Monitor nominates Mifis Mary D niapho, a teaclicr in the public schools ol that city, as a candidate for county superin tendent of schools. The election occurs next yea;, we believe, hut there is nothing like be ing in time. From Utica. Utic.v, July 2(J, 1S77. Our ilruireist. Mr. ilicby, has for sale Ihiwman'a picture of our now brulce, and, by the way, I may remark hero that Mr. Ilig bv has fur sale everything that is useful and ornamental, nnd sella them at such figures that none but his sweet heart can say he Is thu denrert uiau in town, in all our departments of business here things wear a lively appearance. Our i-trcets are sometimes thronged with wagons loaded with grain no fewer than fourteen learns fero here from Lostaut one day last week, a distance of twenty miles. If our free bridge is of no benefit, it will at least Injure Ottawa by taking from her that source ot trade whica ehc might com mand If she bad taken tho proper means at the proper time. It may be remarked here loo, that those farmers from Iwtant leave more money with our bu.Mnes men in one hour than the farmers of I'liea township leave in six months. Tho farmers of thi vicinity are disgusted at the price of iotatoes. Kathtr than sell thtm fur tveii?y-tlvu cents a bushel they have resolved to keep them to throw at the tramps.
