MINING J OUIINAL.
FROSTBURO, MD., JULY 81,1883. The strike may 1 ave a withering effect upon those dailies which pub lish telegraphic news second-hand. The candidates for Sheriff still multiply. It is hard to say which of them will be qneen of love and beauty. Some of the city papers frights*" tha telegraphic operators with the warning that the people of the country will not approve any in terruption of business occasioned by their refusal to work. After a long study of such matters we have never been able to discover any force in an argument which implies that any class or profession is under bonds to keep the world moving at slave rates of wages. The trouble with the Western Un ion telegraph compaay appears to be that it has a standing dividend cf 7 per cent, to declare. This is a law unto itself, but immutable for all that. Water has had the same effect upon its stock that it has upon dried apples, and the company must have a large profit upon a very wet investment. An expenditure of not over forty millions has swollen to a capital ized stock of eighty millions. To realize the required profit upon this amount the people must pay all they can stand and the operators are re quired to provide the remainder. The Courier frequently implies that Cumberland is a queer as well as a “queen city.” Sometimes the com mittee on manufactures make verbal reports of how the thing is done in Pittsburg and other places. Of course they talk delightedly of strange sights of activity going on where the resources are no more unlimited than here, and marvel greatly why invest ments do not find a focus in Cumber land. Then they wind up with the lovely old song of "Home, sweet heme; there's no place like home.” It is a fact that there is no place in this country where there is such a contented circle of capitalists as in Cumberland—except, perhaps, Frost burg. In railway arguments for long hauls at lower rates than short it is frequently stated by company repre sentatives that through freight can be carried cheaper than local and is more desirable. For instance, one hundred pounds can be carried from St. Louis via Baltimore to Philadel phia cheaper than to Baltimore, and of course it is just like a railroad com pany to want to do the most work for the least money. But if goods can be carried to Philadelphia cheaper than to Baltimore, the charge to New York will be still cheaper, and to Bos ton still cheaper, and so on. Now, what we want to know is—how far beyond Boston they will carry goods until the charge gets down to noth ing? The number of political fences down are incalculable, but the boys are digging new post-hobs, putting up stringers and nailing pailings on boards to suit regulation purposes. Those who have worm fences ere re placing decayed timbers with new rails, stakes and riders, and not a few are removing the old structures of wood and replacing them with iron. We hive heard of one enterprising firm of fifteen members that have in troduced the barbed wire variety and are well enclosed against outside cat tle. But even the best fences are not proof against depredators, and peo ple who "join" cannot always be de pended upon to keep up their por tions. There is, therefore, a premium ahead for the men who by luck have "buiided better than they knew.” Some one signing himself "Demo crat wrote a letter a Pittsburg paper suggesting a dismemberment of the Knights of Labor and a merging of its immense membeiship in the demo cratic party. To this modest propo sition Mr. T. V. Powderly demurs. He holds that the Order occupies higher ground than parties ; that it holds, so far as politics are involved, the position of a training-school, to the end that its members may be ed ucated to a proper conception of the value of the ballot and of the time to use it. It is better to prevent evil enactments, says he in substance, than to he forced afterward into up-hill agitations for repeals. When the Journal held a similar view nearly two years ago the wily politician persuaded the people that it was ab surd. President Lincoln did not use profane \ language. Andy Johnson could swear and did swear, roundly and fluently. So did Mr. Stanton and Mr. Seward. So also, Mr. Fessenden. Henry Wilson, when Lis feelings were wrought up, us they were, for example, when Colfax was nominated for Vice-President at Chicago, would swear a little oath as though lie were | ashamed of it. General Grant doesn’t swear, neither did Gaifield. Mr. Randall dues occasionally. Judge Keili-y has been kno vn to forget Ids early religions train- 1 in,;. Attorney-General the aster can swear fluently in three languages. Oliver P. Moilon was determined In Ids profanity at times. Mr. Ilajis swore only in his mind, mil then only in the absence of his : wife.— Euhange. The above memorabilia are repre sented as the "observations of a poli tician,” and they bring vividly to . mind an assertion ol Eli Perkins that "Senator (now Governor) Hamilton was never known to ntter a profane 1 word in all his life.” CORRESPONDENCE The, Oldest Town in the Union— Not for the “Old Ticket"—A Gooil Word the President —Trail for Governor. t Washington, U, C., July 18,1883. To the Mining Journal; Your correspondent made a slight error in last letter referring to the citizens of Santa Fe celebrating their second centennial. Not being an in -1 habitant of the Old World, which can boast of centmies by the score, the error of just 133 i years is simply un pardonable. But just think of it I Here it a little city, far in the interior of this extensive country, celebrating 1 its Tertio-Millenial, its third of a thousand years, cr its 333 J birthday. It was 15 years old when St. August ine, the oldest settlement on the At -1 lantic coast, was founded, and dates 1 its beginning as a Spanish town 41 years before Hendrick Hudson discov ered Delaware bay and first laid eyes upon the noble river which btars his name ; 57 years before the first set tlers of Virginia landed at James town; 70 yeais befoie the Pilgrims set foot cn Plymouth Rook, and 84 years before Leonard Calvert and hie - colonists sailed up the Chesapeake and , stepped out upon the sandy beach of Maryland. Edward VI. was at the time running his brief career as Eng land's king; Mary was on the throne of Scot'and ; Henry 11. controlled the destinies of France, and Charles V. reigned over the then mighty king dom of Spain. But a short time be fore Pizarro had conquered the Incas of Peru, and Cortez had invaded the halls of Montezuma in Mexico. Al though it was the site of a pueblo, or village, of natives whose history is blotted out of existence, it cannot compare on the score of sge with in numerable places in the Old World, yet in this, the greatest republic ol the New, it stands hoary and venera ble in its antiquity, and we honor it as the most ancient city of the Union. In politics they do say that the old Tilden and Ilendiicka ticket is to be revived. The latter named has at last given in his adhesion, and an in timate friend of the Sage of Grameroy Park has intimated in an elaborate interview published iu the New York Times that "Old Barkis is willin’!” The New York Sun, supposed to le Mr. Tilden's especial organ, throws cold water on the suggestion and takes issue, as it were, with Honri Watterson and the aforesaid inti mate friend as to Mr. T’s desire or physical ability to accept such a nomination. In tho meantime the demccratic party is thrown into a fever by the agitation of the suljpot It looks very much as if were Mr. Til den dead and buried rumor that his ghest was seen would put the demo cratic politicians of the country in an unusual state of alarm and anxiety. Everybody outside of New York in sists that he would certainly carry that State, whilst a considerable num ber of New Yorkers as stoutly insist that he cannot. Now figures ought not to lie, and if you put them down right they will not. Wo all know that Tilden car ried the State outside of the citv of New York when be ran for Governor in 1874. Two years later he ran for President of the United States on the democratic ticket with his record as a reform Governor and the moral influ ence of public opinion outside bis | [ State to aid him. What was the re sult? He lost the State outside ol New York City by 15,000 votes, and had to thank the loyal vote of Tam many Hall in the city for securing him the electoral vote cf tho State. How he showed his gratitude to this old organization afterwards is a mat ter of history. Suffice it to say not withstanding tho number of rumors extant we do not believe he can ever compromise in any way, shape or form with that organization, and it stands to-day an invincible lion in his path to the White House. But outside of all this, what in the name of common sense is the matter with democrats who think success for them is depend ent upon the leadership of a semi paralytic, or one whose physical and i\ probably mental powers at best aie in such a questionable condition that hie most intimate friends cannot agree in ' regard to them ? Blaine and Arthur are the leading favorites on tho republican side if we are to credit the metropolitan papers. ' But hero again the Tribune, which is known to bo close to Mr. Blaine, en ters an emphatic disclaimer for that \ gentleman. Your correspondent is an impartial observer iu this matter,' having no political predilections for either, but does not hesitate to say that ,t would be hard for the republi can parly to improve on the present incumbent of the Fresidental Chair, and it certainly cannot be done from the list of candidates so far mention ed. The movements in the State of Maryland in lepubliaan circles point to Charles E. Trail, of Frederick city, as the coming republican nominee for Governor. I have occasion to revise my opinion formerly expressed in reference to Holton, and do eo with out hesitation. Anon. City Views of the Coal Trade. New York.—We cannot i eport any particular activity in bituminous coals; they are being disposed of in about tho average volume, and the relative proportions of several districts are kept up. Occasionally there is a small contract secured at low rates, and this is all the "new business" con sists of. From all wo gather, the average on soft coal this year is going to be materially less than it has been for some time past. The only relief that is anticipated by any of the oper ate; s is a spurt during October and November that may help the aver age.—Coal Trade Journal, We understand that the price for the Fitchburg railroad contract, noted In our last, was $2 86 at Georgetown, equivalent to about $4.35 delivered at Boston. Trade is very quiet, and there is evidence that the drawbacks both in Baltimore and Ohio and Pennsylvania railroads must be heavy. We quete nominally Clearfield coal, $firstname.lastname@example.org, and Cumberland, $4.10 @54.35, according to quality.—N. Y. Coal. MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS.

Superior Excellence.—lLe rea sons for Peruna't superior excellence in all diseases, and its modus operundi, are fully explained in Dr. Hartman's lecture reported in his book on the "Ills of Life, and How to Cure Them,’' from page 1 to page 10, though the whole book should be read and stud ied to get the full value of this par excellent remedy.

They were not even in the un apaciuus city. Their two wee rooms were in a seaside hotel, and wore further restricted by the quantity of female finery that hung on the walls. That is the kind of suffering that thousands of well-to-do city families go off voluntarily to endure.” We note with satisfaction that the Slate of Pennsylvania has appropiated $12,500 for the erection of a hospital for sick and wounded coal miners and railroad men at Counelevillo, provided that a like amount is raised by private subscription. To the great railroads j which derive avast revenue annually j from tho leading industry of that section, and to the large producers some of whom have accumulated princely fortunes, it should be a mat ter of a few days to securo the neces sary funds. We trust that we may ' be able to record at an early date the completion of all the necessary arrangements. —N. Y. Coal. Teleubaphio circles throughout the country have been all broken up during the week over a contemplated strike by operators. The first ar rangement looked to a simultaneous cesoation of work at 10 o’clock Wed nesday morning, but the grand event was deferred by concession twenty six hours later. At 12 o’clock, Wash ington reckoning, Thursday, nearly all the operators in the principal cities of the country ceased work. They demand 15 per cent, advance in sala ries ; 8 hours lor a day's and 7 hours for a night's workttnd the female op erators to be placed on the same foot ing as the men. We concur with an exchange in saying that Judges who rule that every man who has read the newspaper reports of crime is thereby disqnalfled to sit as a juror in a case growing out of that crime would do well to go a lit tle fartheranddecidc that a knowledge of the art of reading is a permanent disqualification for jury duty. It has formed an opinion from what he has read or beard of the pending case. Every intelligent mind forms an opin ion from the facts or allegations pre sented; but the fool only forms such an opinion that further information cannot change it.—Frederick Union. The Mineral Land Company of Alabama organized at Birmingham Monday, with W. H. Woods as pres ident, and E. D. Randolph, R. T. Wil son, J. J. Crane, D. S. Appleton and W. H. Woods, all of New York, as directors. The company owns 450,000 acres, much of which contains valua ble mines, coal and iron. Vessels are again remarkably scarce at the wharves, and it is im possible to ship coal as fist as it ar rives. It is feared that the scarcity will continue for reports from nearly all the coal shipping ports state that the same condition of things prevail. —Alexandria Gazette. Teaching the young idea how to ■hoot does not prevent the old idea from learning how to pop. Nearly 100 of Philadelphia's fairest school teachers have resigned to become brides. The tin found in the mines near Harvey, Dakota, continues to bo fa vorably developed and is regarded with a goed degree of satisfaction by the inhabitants of that favored region. The telegraph operators having geneially pledged themselves to in dulge in no intoxicants during the suspension, the New York Hurt wauls the bosses to do the same thing. Fifteen New York cigar factories employing 7,0.00 hands, many of them women, are idle owing to fending differences with employers. ADDITIONAL LOCAL. An Epidemic. —The black measles have invaded St. Mary’s Industrial School, near Baltimore. Eleven boys have died, among them Thomas Clark, a eon of the woman found living in a turkey-pen, near Lonaoouin? last winter. The other boy, Lis brother, died at the same institution not long ago. The change to better living was perhaps too much for them. Had they baen left in the turkey-pen bv thehumane people who discovered and rescued them, they might to-day be alive, kicking aud naked. Still, it is doubtle.s far better that death has disinherited them of a birthright of shame, Business Locals. Free of Lost. —By calling at Tlios.

Percy— Dear Sir: lam hap py to inform you tlmt the bolt’c of Asth ma Care which you sent me has more than met my expectations. I was suffering very much with suffocation when it came, and was obliged to move about very slowly. Ascending stairs was quite painful on ac count of my shortness of breathing. In fire minutes alter taking the first dose I felt relieved. I have taken it according to directions ever since, aud, although it lias ruined much of the time, I have felt no asthmatic conditions. 1 am truly thank ful, aud hope all suffe.crs from Hay Fever and Asthma may learn of your remedy and be relieved. Maruaret McGann. Bedford, Pa., Oct. 10,1882. D. G. Percy, Esq.— Sir; The remedy you sent me lor Hay Fever I used, and I derived marked benefit, at least I did not suffer us I did in former years from Hay Fever. I bad to leave homo aud go east, which was against my using your remedy ns I wished. I believe If I had received your remedy three weeks sooner, md used it, I would bad very little of the aumml visitor, it any. Much obliged (or your kindness and good wishes for me. As ever yours, Rev. F. Benedict. liar Department, Suroeon-General a Office, Wasiiinuton, D. C., Oct. 10,1882. My dear Mr. Percy : I have suffered from Hay Fever doting the last twe.vo tears, it sets in on the 18thof August, annually, aud terminates when frost ap pears. Have used several remedies but without effect. This year (1882) I have used your preparation, which has euablcd me to attend to my business, w hich, before using it, 1 could not do. The Asthma from which I had suffered so severely, and which almost produced suffocation, has been completely arrested by your valuable medicine. It is without doubt a very ex cellent specific for Autumnal Catarrh. Yours truly, David Flynn. Frostuuro, Mu., July 13,1883. James Gunning, Cincinnati, Ohio— tty Dear Son /—You will recollect my physi cal condition when you left home and your advice to try Percy’s Huy Fever Remedy, n believing, as you slated, that it would af lord relief. You well know the repug nance I have always felt toward the use of patent medicines, and, as much to please you as anything else, I consented to give it a trial and aid so. I have used not quite a large liutlle ofitaud can most trulliiully say it has entirely cured me of my asthma and dry, hacking cough, and also Hie tick ling in my throat. I have now uo hesitan cy in recommending it to any one suffering asldid. Yourfather, James Ounhino. mild, effective preparation, put up iu 50-c mt and $1.25 bottles, only by D. G.
