One lady from In dianapolis baa written that she is poor, and asks the president to Instruct his barber to forward to her all the hair cut from the executive bead. 8he proposes to maks this hair Into Cleveland charms and sell them to gentlemen to wear on their watch chains. Another person in Richmond, Vs., wants the seme hair to stuff a pincushions made or silk taktn from an old United States flag. This cushion she will raffle at a church fair lor the be nerlt of a needy Methodist coo. grrgalioo. J err Uavi was received In Mont gomery, Ala., with even greater demon strations of raptute than on a past oc casion when he waa inaugurated presi dent of the confederacy. His path was strewn with roses and flags waved from every window. The telegraph says, though, that the fligs shown were those of the United bates. Why is this? Such exhibition of the stars and stripes must be objectionable to Jeff Davis, Our recollection la that Jiff Davis preferred another flsg. and that hi fame rests chiefly oa his efforts to make the stars and stripes no longer the banner of his raor.

Earn. SrxNcsa's support or Mr Gladstone in the present crisis is one ot the unexpected sod powerful aids which seems always to be ewelting the brave and noble In every great emergenc) . It seems but a day since as viceroy of Ireland he operated with tremendous vigor the machinery of coercion. Now he" bleseee whom he once cursed He eulogizes those sgainst whom he wielded all the terrors of the law. Not content with supporting home rule, he pays a tribute to home rulers who loaded him with opprobrium. He acquits the Irish representatlvoa ol com plicity In crime, believes that the new Irish parliament will be falthlul to its mission. Lord Spencer, while still as. eerting the possibility ot enforcing: law and preserving order In Ireland, believes that English democracy will not perse vere In coercion, and, therefore, pro nounces the old methods exhausted and asserts that nothing la left but the policy of trust !n the Irish people and Irish leaden. . x last number of the Osage City Free frees came out with a supplement giving a condensed history ol Osage county and city. lBOTOM oil was put la a pitcher of water oa the speaker's desk at a temper ance meeting at Benton, Missouri. Sev eral persons drank of Ibe water and they are now lying in a precarious condition. Two saloon keepers lave been arrested on suspicion. Among the treaksof the late Minne uiacrcione was tne carrying of a mar ble gravestone from a St. Cloud cemetery across the Mlssissidpl river, three miles and landing it in the heart or Sank Rapids. A sale weighing 1,500 pounds was carried 400 teet. Thb nickel, which was until quite re cently looked upon with contempt In San Francisco, has already revolution ised the prices or certain things and ser vices In that city, and the Chronicle ex presses the opinion that copper cents will soon be as current as the nickel. Gov. Martin's article on Kansas in the April number of the North Ameri can Review is attracting very general at tention. Nothing on paper ever repre sented the state better than the gover nors web-woven or facta and figures. It Is a romantic picture, truthful as it is surprising. Kansas is a wonder, her growth almost a miracle. Topcka Capi- Thb deficiency bills or the present ad ministration already amount up to $7,- 000,000, and there is plenty ol opportu nity before congress adjourns for an in- crease or these figures. The Democrats are giving the Republicans some lessons in economical administration of the gov ernment which tbey will do wise to re fuse to probt by on their return to power two years hence. - Kansas is, as has been said, a great tract or 52,238,000 acres, containing a larger aumber or cultivable acres than any other state in the Union. Thirty years of cultivation in the eastern sec tion oi the state baa witnessed no diminution in the productivenees or the solL Kansas dues not own an exhausted or worn out field. Ot tbe 53.000.000 acres only about 10.000.000 have ever been broken by tbe plow. We want eastern people lo come and help develop the other 42,000,000 aens. fORGI VB AND FORGET . Oi tbe 14th or March a person in New York chatted by telephone with a person at Washington more easily and comfortably than persons la tbe same city ordinarily talk with each other by telephone. On the 18ih ol the present month a perfectly Iree conversation was carried on by a person In New York with one at Cleveland, Ohio, a distance ol 631 miles, aud a fair one was had with Chicago, a distance or 1,030 miles la that case a voice could be recognised, which we know is not alwaya the case with ordinary talking by telephone. The instrument used in tbis conversa tion waa a new one, known as tbe Turn bull telephone. Post 53 or the G. A. It in this city held a meeting Saturday night and passed resolutions condemning Jeff Davis' recent speech at Montgomery, Ala., as traitorous. The Post by this act expresses the general reeling in this com m unity. It most be remembered bow ever, that Mr. Davis suffered very little during the late unpleasantness as he was not in the thickest ot the battle, but was merely the figurehead of the confeder acy. His cause waa dear to him, because success promised bim glory and fame at tbe expense of thousands of Uvea. It is doubled if petllcoated Jeff ever lifted bis hand for tbe lost cause, although it Is generally admitted that he shot off his mouth with an eare and fluency that would have been a credit to a. book agent at tbia season or tbe year. Mr. Davis la now old and cbtlduh. His remarks will occasion no barm, but will cause many a giiod aoldior ti chuckle "sour grapes." His late effort as a speaker will cause many people to exclaim, "Jeff Davis has turned up again and has made a speech ; I didn't know he was alive; I thought thev hung him on a sour apple tree. Poor old Jeff, he will never aee tbe error ol his way. The star or his life will shortly set, and like Bob Toombs, he will leave this life for tbe one be- jondthe horizon, where no doubt his reputation has preceded him, and be will receive his just deserts. As to whether he will figure as prominently in either section of tbe World td come as he did on earth, we are unable to state, but as he was entirely competent to play the devil as the leader of tbe Con fed. eracy, it ia barely possible that be will not be satisfied with a fecond place after reaching his destination, but will ask the devil to resign; at any rate Mr. Davis will keep up his reputation, and it ia with pleasure that we recommend him to bis satanic majesty as a leader. Jeff, will be quite a valuable acquis! tlon in hU prospective home, for should tbe devil get sick he will oe there to assume leadership and Us responsibil ities. It is not every man that is so fitted for a change of residence, abd the devil is to be congratulated When he Secures Mr. Davis' services. Seriously. in spite of the idiotic speeches of tbe Confederate president, the people who stood by tbe Union, especially the "boys In blue," caa afford to be maz- nanimous even try to forget that there ever was such a man. The laural wreath ol victory rests upon them, and although they mourn the loss of thous ands of loved ones who gave up their lives to preserve the unity ot the nation, there is In this a plea ior charity. The rebels suffered the loss of homes, dear ones and after a bitter struggle were de' feated, and in the end the people ot the aouth and tbe north, representatives of the grandest nation that ever existed were again bound together by the same ties that were almost severed. Years have rolled by and the galling fueling of de feat felt by our rebel brothers was thought to have died sway; when the yellow fever broke out all over the south the northern people were prompt to send aid to relievo the suffering. This act was brotherly and showed the right spirit. During that dreadful scourge tbe sympathy .and help extended by our people caused the crushing downfall of the rebellion seemingly to be forgotten until'a few days ago when Jefferson Davie revived memories ol the past, and was received by the people with more i pleasure and enthusiasm than when he was inaugurated as tbe rebel president. Again tbe antagonistic feeling of the south against the north has boon aroused, once more it should be crushed not by force but by deeds ot love and mag. nanimity.

Pbbbaps the greatest mental peril in which well-to-do young people of tbe present day stand, is that ol literary die- al nation. There are thousands of youog men and women, who seem to know no other wsy of uslog ( r abusing) their ed ucation than by keeping up a constant surfeit of sensational stories, "religious" or "secular;" and sometimes this bablt hi even talked of as "improving the mind."

As the citizens of this city are new called upon to choose a mayor to fill the vacancy caused by tbe resignation of Mr. Whittlesey, we will assume the re sponsibility of suggesting tbe propriety of their selecting a man young enough to be imbued with modern ide&H, to re alize the fact that Emporia is, or ought to be at least. a metropoli tan centre and that we select a man possessed of sufficient tact and energy to compreheud tbe present condition of affairs; also, with nerve enough to impel him to make himself useful by pushing forward some ot the Improvements needed to keep us abreast of the times. Mr. W. D. Brewer, of the firm ol S. A. Brown & Co., is being fav orably spoken of in this connection and many people think he would make a live mayor. Prom all that we can learn we have come to tbe conclusion that the gentleman above named is possessed of broad and liberal views, and is in favor of progress and tbe general welfare of every class of citizens. With this under standing, we will give our support to elect him In case be consents to become a candidate. Two drummers driving from Grayson lo Pawoeet Kansas, lost their way, and finally came to a shanty. In it were two beds ; on one lay a woman who looked like a living skeleton ; on the other were tbe dead bodies of a man and five cbil dren. Tbe woman could talk, and told the story: "My husband, Howard Bel linger, had been sick a long time. Five weeks sgo we were very nearly out ot provisions and I sent my son, 23 jears of age, to Grayson to get some provis ions. We waited and waited tor bis re turn, but he did not come. Alter awhile the children got sick, and one by one the little ones died. My husband was the the last oae to go, he dying last night." The drummers had a lunch with them, and, giving it to the woman, went out to find help.

C'hicauo, May 5. The collision be. tween the police and anarchisla last uigbt Woe brought about by the leaders ol the latter, August Spies, Sam Field en aud A. It. Persons, endeavoring to incite a large mass meeting to riot and bloodnbed. From the suci<utic head- quarters their was issued in the after uodo the following circular, which was distributed throughout the lahoriuc quarters of the city by tbe thousands: A1TBM1I0M WOKKMttN. A great icaas meeting at 7 uSO o'clock at the bay marker, Kindol pa street, be tween DesDlttines and Halstead. Good speakers will be present lo denounce the iatost atrocious act of tbe police the snoonug oi our leuow workmen yester- aj alter nooon. Signeoj Execotivk Committee. At (4:30 o'clock Initio crowd bad collected at tbe detdgnated place. August Spies wes tho first speaker. After a ion if rambling talk on the 1-tbor prob lem, be asked: "What mean this dis play ot gatlling guns, cannons, bayonets, patrol wagons, and clubs What means the calling out of tbe First regiment ? Is it entertainment for you r The demand of McCormick was reasonable ar.d yet McCormick denies that be Is responsible for the bloodshed yes terday I say he lies. He Is responsible for the death of our brothers. (A voice, 'Put him un der the lake ) A rope is better. Oo not make useless threats, my friends, but when you are ready, act," (A voice, "String bim up)." Several others spoke in tbe same strain, one advising as the only means lo attain the end of "oar socialistic and nihilibtic principles is to Kin oa mose wao oppose us, omcers and citizens alike " Oiticers in citizens' dress who were attending the meeting immeuiaieiy reported the drill ot tbe meeting to the captain in charge of two hundred police at a station near by. The captain decided that prompt measures only would avert another serious riot and they immediately prepared to march on the anarchists. There were five companies in all. Captains Ban field and Ward took a position at the head of the line which marched to the meeting place of the mob. Captain Ward, raising his club to command the attention ol the strikers, cried . 'In the name of the state ot Illinois I command this crowd to disperse." As tbe words left his mouth a spluttering spark of fire arched through tbe air from the opening of the alley over the speakers' wagon. It was the burning fuse of a dynamite bomb, and was well aimed In its deadly mmsion. It tell direct ly in tbe middle of the street and between tbe first two double columns of police. The Instant it struck tbe ground it exploded with a terrible sullen roar. It did its deadly work well. Tweuiy mangled men tell groaaimr to th ground. The bomb broke tbe ranks of tne otucers A Gat- ling gun could not have cut a wider swartb. The scene of horror followed beioro the officers bad time to realize the destruction of death which bad been wrought in tbe ranks- Crowds of an archists gathered in trout and on either side and then opened fire with rvolvtra at alinobt point blank range. The first volley was as fearful in its effects as waa tbe explosion of the bomb, but the offi cers did not lose their presence of mind and charged the murderoui assasains on every baud, dealing death and destruc tion to tbeui with their revolvers. Tbe Anarchists did not sustain tbe charge an instant, but lied as soon as they could distinguish the blue coau. and bright buttons ot the oiticers through the smoke troni the revolvers. It was a scramble for lite. Scores of men were knocked down by those behind and then trampled upon uxe came, ine police chased them until they all disappeared. The explo. sion of the bomb and tbe revolver lusil ade attracted thousands to tbe vicinity. The majority ol them bad no connec tion with the anarchists and no sympa thy witn mtir lawlessness, but with the fatality of curious crowds attempted to resist the police when ordered to leave tbe sidewalk in front ol the police sta tion and inconsequence some of them were seriously injured. Alter tbe anar chists had been diapered the police set to work to look after their wounded and dying companions. Two were found where the bomb exploded, both as des perately wounded as to be past hope for recovery. Acout thirty others were found lying on the pavement ia the vi cinity suffering from pistol shot wounds In their limbs and bodies, unable to stir band or foot. Rioters, too, lay wounded and dying. A list of the killed and wounded as near as can be ascertained np to the present is as follows: Killed Officer John Barrett, three gunshot wounds, one in left breast, one in rieht breast ana one in the toot. Officer Joseph M. Dee can. wounded in the thigh by explosion ot the bomb. the artery bel nr fevered. O racer Tom Heddm, shot In the thigh and breast, reported dying. Officers Mike Sheeban.' Lawrence Murphy, Cbarlea Miller. Tim Flavin. eitizen, Thos. Nolan and Officer , Frank Johnson. Amone the rioters, two whose names are unknown, were taken to Desplainee street police station and a large number of others who were carried from tbe field by their friends. Their exact number will probably never be known. About a drzen wounded rioters are being cared tor at tne noanitais About forty five police and twelve citizens are more or less seriously wounded. THB LBAOBRS ARRBSTKU. Spies. Fieldmar and Parsons, wbo in cited the riot last night, have been ar restea. Tbe occurrences ot Monday and las night are ascribed in the public mind-to be the teachings ol the recent utterances principally of three men, Auirust Spies. A. R. Parsons and Samuel Fielding, tne speakers ol last night, l heir ar rest has been rcpeal'tdly demanded. When tbe tiling began last night Par sons was the only man seen to be recoff. nized. He was in a liquor store, tbe so cialist' headquarters, near tbe place w litre me deadly bomb waa thrown among tbe ranks of the police. During the contusion which followed tbe ex plosion of the bomb, Parsons, accom panied by a negro, disappeared. The police searched for the three men all night, but did not succeed in tirfUing them until after V a. m. All three were found in a close room in the office of the Arbiter Zjitung newspaper. They were in consultation when the officers came upon them. Tbey exhibited alarm and made no resistance. They were taken quickly to the Central police station and are kept closely guarded No one is permitted to see tbem. It is not known what, if any, charges has been made sgainst them and what is the exact policy the city author itiee intend to pursue. The entire po lice force are on duty to-day and its members are apparently in first-claa condition despite the arduous duties of tne lasi lew aaya. Another great strike was inaugurated this morning. Seventeen hundred men employed in the Deering harvester woras wiinoai nouce or warning of any kind, without having made any demands The managers of the works asked for police protection. The railroad situation is further cons plicated tbis morning by a strike of all freight handlers on the Lake Shore road . The switchmen on the same road have also decided not to handle freight cars loaded by persona other than strikers. Mob violence again asserted itself in the southwestern part of tbe city., this mora lng."" A bout 9 o'clock groups of men. women and children began to gather at the earner of Eighteenth street end Centre avenue. These groups soon aggreealed three' thousand VMrrenna Oae ol the corners Is tbedrng store 'at samuei uoeenieidt. it became apparent that the owner of the store was the ob ject against Whoa the crowd were bent on venting their spite.

Tne fury of the mob was directed against the druggist beer use he hsd telephone in bis store. They had an idea that rtceenteldi was giving "tips" to tne police. Some police officers in the vi cinity telephoned to the Henmaa street station and a wagon load of police was soon on the scene. Taking Koaenleldt and family into the wagon they con veyedthemto tbe station, leaving a Euard in the vicinity. . Three thousand men employed la the great car shops at Pullman laid down their tools and went out this morning, joining one thousand who quit ycsler day. There is no one at work in the town except 900 men la the truck shops. The mayor has been in consultation all the morning with the officers of the city law. department, Prominent citi zens and various city order are prepar ing to take action in regard to tee mur derous occurrences last night The militia are in the armories ready to tarn oat at a momenta notice. Between 300 and 400 police have been armed with Springfield rifles. -Every man on the force is armed with two 44 calibre revolvers. Sam Fielding, the rabid anarchist and companion of Augast Spies, ia nnder ar rest, tie it waa wno spoae the words to the mob last night which led to the slaughter. Fielding Is suffering from a gunshot wound In tbe leg. Inspector Barfield raided Sephes hall, the socialists fendtftvoas. this moraine. and found a lot ot musketSj red . fligs and German books expounding the so cialistic doctrines. Nearly $10,000 baa already been sub scribed on " 'change" for the families ot tbe wounded and dead officers. Shortly alter boon the police made another raid on tbe office of the Arbeiter Zeitung, arrested a man in the office, wbo, upon being searched, produced a large revolver and a dirk knile. He was placed nnder arrest, Ia the office was discovered several boxes of dynamite, a number oi reu nags ana inoenaiary burners. Tbey were all seized. A mob of six to eight thousand persons reas sembled near the corner of Eighteenth street and Center avenue at noon and raid ed Rotbcbild'a drug store mentioned in tbe early dispatches, carrying off every thing portable in tbe store, then raided the liquor store in the near viciniiy, kept by a man named W. liskoff, carrying away or drinking the liquor. Women and children joined In this raid. Police returned to the scene and succeeded in dispersing tbe mob. The strikers at tbe Oeerlng reaper works held an open air meeting on the prairie near the factory at ten o'clock this morning. Tbey demand an ad vance of . 20 per cent for piece work eight boars work and tea hoars' psy. and double psy for over time. It has finally been decided by the mayor to issue a proclamation calling on all persons to keep off the streets alter dark, and warning all people not to gather in crowds on the streets or on vacant Iota . Inspector Bonfleld raided No. 54 West Lake street this afternoon. This is a no torious resort for socialists. One of the rooms waa occupied by freight hand lers. The police cleared the place . The police raided tbe establish ment kept by O. P. Bissal, No. 15 South Clark street, tbis afternoon, carrying away ninety guns and revolvers. It is declared that Bissel has been supplying tbe socialists with guns. Twenty-five printers have been ar rested in tbe Arbeiter Zeitung building and arraigned before Justice Meecb, charged with murder. Their cases were continued until ' May 14th. Bail waa refused. The dynamite found In the Arbeiter Zeitung office this morning waa taken to tho lake front and exploded . - The effect waa terrible. A piece about the size of a ben's egg was placed in a coupling link and was exploded. - Tbe heavy piece was scattered in fine bits. 2 -:,S0 p. m. This city remains quiet up to this hour. Tbe railroad companies have sustained no molestation of any kind, and with tbe exception of tbe Lake Shore, are moving all the freight offered. Forty-four wounded officers and men are at tha county hospital. Officer Deegan is tbe only one dead among tbe injured officers. The an nouncement of the death ot Officers Barrett and Hansen was wrongly re ported. At 2'clock Officer Barrett Is dying. There appears to be little bope ot sav ing the lives of Officers John Miller, Jacob Hansen, Nelson Hansen, and Thomas Reddin. The remaining offic ers have shown signs of recovery, but, some are extremely low. Two rioters, Emil Lutz and John Le plane, are in a very critical condition and It is expected win aie. AT BAT VIBW. Milwaukee, Wis , May 5. 9 a. in. Reports from Bay View say the militia fired on tbe mob this morning. Two rioters are known to be killed. Tbe mob Is marching towards the All is works, which started under military protection this morning. The light horse squad ron are on tue'.r way to the works. A large gathering ot socialists is reported at Milwaukee garden. The police are on the way to the spot. Serious trouble Is feared. 9:30 a. m. The mob oi socialises which assembled at tbe Milwaukee Garden started for Best's brewery. Three companies of militia, a platoon of cav alry and a platoon ot police are on their way to intercept. Tbe latest reports from Bay View show a much more serious condition of affairs than first reported. A crowd of rioters commenced to form at 8:30 and moved towards the mills. Six mili tary companies marched out ot the grounds stationed in front of the works, and as the crowd approached, paying no attention to the orders to halt, the dreadful word of "fire" waa . given, and a volley ot bullets waa poured into the crowd. The rioters best a hasty retreat, when it was learned that five lives had been sacrificed and several persons wounded. One of the killed was a school boy who had his school books under hU arm when be fell While this trouble was going on at Bay View a large crowd of Socialists and strikers assembled at Milwaukee on the guarded west aide and were preparing to carry out a programme ol destruction, but a pla toon of sixty police and three infantry companies were dispatched there and cleared the premises. The mob reas. sembled and proceeded to Best's brewery. Word has just been received at military headquarters that a disturbance took place therein, which became necessary to resort to firing, and that two persons were killed. The city isin a slate of great excitement.

It is expected that the remaining firms will fall in line with others during to day. The eight bour committee of tbe trades' assembly have issued a circular to the worklngmen of Chicago which says: Our advice is that where disagree ment as to term! exist, interview em ployer through a committee. Base your demands on justice; present a united front; determine to secure the adoption of the eight boar system, even if conces sion to obtain it must be made. Act like rational men and as law-abiding citizens should. Tbe Illinois Central freight handlers. one hundred and thirty five in number, struck last night tor tbe eight bour day General Superintendent Jeffreys called the men together and said it was im practicable tor the road to grant the hours, for its freight business could not be doue in that time. The men con ferred a lew minutes and decided to quit work, which they did, declaring tbelr intention of staying out until their de mands were acceded lo. The Baltimore & Ohio men have peti tioned the officials for an increase to $1.75 a day and asked ler an answer Fri day. rhe Michigan Central men received a communication from a local freight agent in which he said the company is not prepared to give a definite answer at once, but was willing to pay as much as other roads. The men decided to wait until Wednesday for an answer. About 100 men employed in the Union Steel company's works at Bridge port, as laborers, yesterday demanded ten hours' pay for eight nours' work. The demand was refused, but tbe man ager ottered In raise their pay from $1.25 to $1.40 for ten hours. This offer was refused. The men walked out. The rolling mills shut down yester. day for an indefinite time. About 1,000 men are out of work. The superintend ent says that in ail' probability the mills would net start again until the labor troubles we.-e at an end. The Calumet Iron and Steel company at Cuiumings, have shut down. It is said that not enough non-union men could be fouud to run the works. A crowd of B'theinians, Poles and Germans began to assemble on the prairie in the southwestern portion this morning where tbe incendiary bar rangues ot yesterday were uttered which provoked the riot later on, but the police raided effectually and scattered tbem. Capt. Hathaway with a crowd of fifty police put in an unexpected appearance at "Goose Island"' at 9 o'clock. Two hundred Idlers were found guarding the switches and small engine bouse. The police descended on the mob, captured nine and dispersed tbe remainder. Tbe switchmen on all the roads are working this morning, but it is stated that tbe Milwaukee and St. Paul switchmen will go out at 3 o'clock tbis afternoon for a working day of eight hours and to aid the freight handlers in tbe strike. The strikers remain in tbe vicinity of the yards attempting to imluce teamsters to turn bick, using threats at times. A number of teamsters were in duced to turn back with loads. At 9 o'clock tbis morning, when 200 striking employes of the new gas com pany proceeded to tbe corner of Adams street and. Wabash avenue, where alarge lorce oi men were engaged la laying tracks for tbe Chicago City Passenger railway, they compelled the track-layers to stop work. Hsving been driven from the Frame this morning, the idlers and strikers, in cited by leaders, proceeded southeast. Presently a column 3,000 or 4.000 strong marched to the large glue factory near Thirtieth street with the intention of closing down the works. A strong force of police arrived. arrrcsted nine ringleaders and overawed the crowd, whicb moved off without making an attempt to rescue their fel lows. The crowd was such that the chief of police directed a reinforcement of officers oo duty in that district. .The commander of the several state regiments have largely reinforced the guards at the armories without specific, but simply ss precautionary measures. A crowd of strikers attempted an as sault on tbe Chicago, Minneapolis & St. faul shops at western avenue this morning, bat were driven from the scene by a force of police. ATST.IMJ18. St. Louis. May 4 The Knights of Labor generally obeyed the executive order to return to work and many ap plied at tne Missouri 1'acinc and iron Mountain headquarters tor positions this morning. Those who participated tn acts of violence against the railroad companies' property were informed that their services were not needed. Those were told that their positions were al ready occupied, while others and the larger proportion, were re-employed. The chief of departments haye been in structed to employ efficient men when needed and thus no general re employ ment of the strikers in a body will oc cur, and the filling of vacancies will be graded and will occupy some time. The circular issued last night by the general executive board of the Knights of Labor ordering the strike off applies to Knights in East St. Louis. These men struck nnder peculiar circumstances. They went out both to assist tbe strikers of the south west - system and beaauae that they had grievances of their own. It was at first thought that on account oi the latter fact tbe strike would continue in East St. Louis, but Master Workman Snllivan, ot the East St. Louis district, said that as the general executive board had ordered them beck to work they would go. A large number of switch men and freight handlers, etc., applied for positions at the headquarters of the various companies and tba names ot many were immediately placed on tbe pay rolls. Some few, recognized as those who had committed depredations on the company's property, were denied re-employment. The men had not been informed of tbe order in time to make aplications this morning and will ask for old positions individ ually, and not in a body. Tbe beat of good hamor prevails in East St. Looia, and although the companies there have been doing all the business required of them since the militia Arrived, the yards and freight depots present an unusually busy aspect this morning and the man ifest.' uneasiness of last month has en tirety disappeared. It is expected thai the- militia will be withdrawn to-oigbl or to-morrow. The local committee of tbe Knights of Labor, which ordered the employes of the Missouri Car and Foundry company to strike because the lattee taratsbed the Missouri Pacific company with repair aaatenal. informed the men they could report for duty to day. This morning those who -had been eat on a strike applied for their old positions and were taken back almost without exception. IT BAT VIBW.

AT CHICAGO. Chicago. May 3. Freight handlers to the amount of 700 or 800 met last night. The meeting was a prolonged and noisy one. Tnose present evinced great enthusiasm. The question ol lighting back at the railroad managers was discussed at length and an aggres sive policy decided on. The best mode of fighting the roads was to secure the co-operatioB oi the switchmen and get them to refdse to handle freight loaded by men Imported to take the places or tbe strikers. This suggestion was layoi ably received and a committee was ap pointed to wait noon the switchmen and see if tbey would aid the freight hand lers. What the report of that committee was could not be learned. The switch men's meeting lasted irom 8 o'clock until 12 o'clock and was a stormy ses sion. Many members left the meeting before it was through. The proposition ot the freight handlers was discussed but did not meet with general tavor. After the meeting Vice-Grand Master Druey was asked if the switchmen would strike. He refused to say any thing but insinuated that eyente would tell the story. The Wabash, which is in the bands of a receiver, applied to Judge Greshman for a lorce of deputy united IS .alee marshals to protect tbe men in handling freight. It is expected they will oe furnished. The Chicago. Milwaukee A St. Paul railroad freight depots at Junction, Union and Kenzie streets, early tbl morning was the scene of curious crowds. Among the number were the striking freight handlers of the road. Shortly before 7 o'clock a speetal train ran Into the yards and fourteen special detectives appeared first, followed by 200 men brought in by the railroad com pany irom ami rant points on its line. They were at once surrounded by the strikers who nrged them not to go to work and deprive tbem of their posi tions. There was no wavering on tbe part of the new men, however. They entered the freight houses in a body. tna sinners appeared dazed at nrst at the size of the crowd which had arrived to support the company and offered no violence. The leaders ot the strikes held a hurried consultation and the entire crowd marched off to the Bur lington yaada to obtain, possibly, an en largement of their forces. Groups of idle men hung about the yards of the irt. wayne. Burlington and Alton roads and np to 8 o'clock the ofBoials of the companies had given no sign of a pian of action tor the day. me procession ot strikers visited the Milwaukee & St Paul depot and in duced a portion of the new men to join the crowd. As it entered tbe St. Paul yards it numbered from 3.000 to 5.000 men and was somewhat demonstrative. Two squads of police arrived on the scenes and drawing their clubs effectual ly scattered the crowd, allowing the new men to proceed with their work. All the railroads haye -freight houses open. but are unable to transact only a limited amount ot business. Betore noon the Fairbank Canning company and H. S. Morrill & Co., set tled tne differences witn their men by adjusting wages. one-halt tne men employed at tne McCormick reaper worka went out to day. The firm immediately sent word that they would give tbe men ten hours pay for eight hours work until they found out the effect of the system upon their business. Four car loads of imported men were set to work in the Western avenue freight house of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad. The great factory of the Chicago Mai lable Iron company closed down thia morning. Nine hundred employes are out on a strike. They demanded for eight hours work ten hours pay. BESUMED OPERATIONS.

Verbeacn appears mnch depressed. He refuses to give any details. The matter is kept secret as yet. but will probably be made public through a general order to-day. Tee Work or A niwiliU. New York, May 3. A few weeks ago, Liberty, a paper published in Bos ton in the interests of the individualistic anarchists, preferred chsrgea of a very serious nature against the revolutionary anarchists of this city, who are led by John Most. The substance or these charges are that the members of the In ternational working Peoples' associa atlon of New York had been for three years plotting and practicing incendiar ism of the most atrocious character under pretense of aiding the cause. The Sun tbia morning says that ever since the chsrgea were made it has been investi gating the matter and now gives the re sult of its labor. Herr Moat's denial discloses a peculiar condition of things in anarchist circles nere. t here is in ternal dissension and discord, or rather there was, for a considerable number of hundieds or so members of the Inter national Working Peoples' association have withdrawn from it. The cause of the secession lies in facts which led liberty to make its charges of incendiarism and rascality. These facta, which have been gleaned after considerable difficulty, show that leading members of the International Working feoplea' association nave been remarkably unlucky men. Taken in connection with Moat's extraordinary doctrines, tbe carious fires from which the gentlemen suffered are interesting. Tbey have all originated in upsetting. breaking and exploding kerosene lamps, and have resulted tn more or leaf dam age to property, and in the collection of more or less insurance money each time by persona In whose apartments the fires occurred. The San then publishes a long list of anarchists, whose wordly goods have been destroyed by fire. All have been so fortunate as to secure ample insurance a few days before the "kero sene lamp exploded." ; Quebec, May 4.

Cheap Dtaaaa !ral Soap Boaes aad Cheap Meat, - "Please tell as how to m&ke tbe plain,' cheap dishes from soup bones) and cheap meat, etc., so that they will be good enough to eat. There are doubtless many among the band besides myself wbo are obliged to practice economy, but when we have made something by one of these cheap recipes and find that no one will eat it, I fail to see where the economy comes in." This is a text from which many a los chapter might be written, and. indeec we read many, aa it is at present a very popular one. But many of the readers who try the economical recipes con tained in them find, like the Household sister who writes me the above sen teueev that they have "made somethinff cheap that nobody will eat" Not while it isn't at all necessary that the least extravagance should be indulged in or der to make things palatable, it is neces sary that the other extreme is not reach ed, ana we become worse man extrava gant, wasteful. For many of these so-called cheap dishes are not fit for mortal man. to eat nor mortal woman either, for that mat ter. And she who has to throw food away because it isn't good enough to eat is the most extravagant and wasteful o boose keepers, often, however, to be pitied instead of blamed, aa she general ly bas tried to be very economical, and failed because 6 be didn't know just bow. From the soup bones and cheaper pieces of meat many a wholesome and savory dish can be prepared, and also many which are anything but palatable. Soups which are greasy, watery and im properly seasoned, stews wnicn are stringy and tasteless with pieces of bone and gristle plentifully interspersed, un pleasant alike to sight and taste, these things surely do not come nnder the head of economical cookery! In makinsr soud from "soud bones" cfaoo8e those which are very fresh, and witn a piemirai supply ox meat, ana re member that boiling' too lonir gives a disagreeable gluey flavor which ia by no means desirable. The bones and meat should be nicely washed and rrt in a kettle with cold water to rather more than cover, addiner one-half teASPOonfuI of salt to each quart of water. Heat slowly, skim carefully' as it nears the boiling point and boil not more than four hours. Remove the bones and meat and strain the broth into a large bowl. Cut the meat from the bones. carefully removing any bits of gristle, and when cold cover closely. The next moraine remove the fat from the cold broth (it should be clari fied, and will be found excellent for 'shortening") and pot it in a porcelain kettle, addins water to make the de sired quantity and a teaspoonful of rice for each quart Peel ana slice two or three potatoes, a carrot two, u small and an onion, if liked; cut a slice of turnip in squares and shred quarter of small cabbage line, and add them all to the soup, when it begins to boil. Cover and simmer for an hour, add if desired a little of the meat cut in small pieces and let it jest boil up. Of course, more salt and pepper, if liked, is to be added if tbe soup ia not sufficiently sea soned, and two or three stalks of celery chopped rather fine and added a few minutes before serving improves it lor many tastes. If any is left it will be just as good "wanned over" for next day, or part of the stock can be kept for a different soup, using the rice but no vegetables, and adding, half an hour before dinner time, a pint or more of canned tomato and one teaspoonful (heaping) of browned flour mixed to a paste with cold water, and served with toasted bread cut in small squares or browned crackers. In former "Notes" I have given direc tions for browning flour, which is very nice to thicken and flavor any bat white soups. From this stock a variety of soups can be made. By using different flavors and vegetables one can vary the order indefinitely. Tbe bent bean soup l know is made aa loliows: Look c and wash a pint of beans and put them to soak over night In a quart of warm water, in the morning, drain ami put them in a kettle with water to cover, and let them come just to the boiling point Stir in one-fourth teaspoonful soda and carefully remove scum which will soon rise. Then drain and put them in a porcelain kettle wkh a quart of stock and one of water, and a tea spoonful of Bait Cover and simmer for three hours. Then pass the soup through a sieve and return to the kettle. Mix to a paste a teaspoonful of browned flour and stir in when the soup boils. Add more salt, if necessary, and a very little white or cayenne pepper, and pour into a warm tureen. Serve with toasted bread or crackers. Tbe bread may be cut in small squares and brown delicatelv in a verv hot oven. It is less trouble than to toast it Fold a napkin in any fanciful design and put on a plate, then pile the bread upon it and pass about the table to eerve. It is nicer than when tbe soup is poured over it in the tureen, and if the table be somewhat scantily furnished, as is often tbe case with a soup dinner. and it makes another disb. The meat which is left can be made into the vegetable stews or meat dump lings recipes for which have been given in the previous visits to our "Household" dining-room, or a very savory pie may be made. Line a deep banking dish with a rather thick crust (if your oven does not bake well at the bottom, put the crust only around the sides of the dish.) and put in the meat prepared in this manner: Cut in as even slices or pieces as possible it won't be possible to carve it very hand somely and put it in a stewpan with a cup of the stock (it is a good plan to keep a pint when making the soup, to use in warming up the meat) and suffi cient water to cover the meat Add a tables poonful of butter, and salt to sea son just right; always adding tbe salt after the butter is well mixed in, that it may not be made too salt When it boils, take out the meat and put half ef it in the pie-dish, sprinkle over it a heaping teaspoonful of flour; then add the rest of the meat pour over it a scant cup of the gravy, sprinkle over it a tea spoonful of flour, and put over it a tea spoonful of butter cut in bits; put on the top crust, which should be cut two or three times across the center, and bake three-quarters of an bour in a steady oven. Heat the remainder of the gravy, adding a little water if necessary, and stir in a teaspoonful of flour mixed smooth with a little water. When it thickens pour into a warm gravy dish and send to tbe table immediately. Household. A Freese-Oat Over in the treasury a story is told at the expense of a high official. The air in the room was rather chilly, but the clerks were found busily at work in their light office coats. They had warmed the bulb of the thermometer np to 75, and awaited developments. The official remarked that it was cold, and shivered and looked uneasily about the room. A clerk leisurely glanced at the thermome ter and said it was very comfortable. Tbe official looked and saw and won dered. "I think I must have a chill," ha said, but be went to his desk Pretty soon tbe clerk in front of bim deliberately pulled off his coat and re sumed work. "I am sure I must have a saill," again remarked the official, but every cleric had his nose down to business, and hadn't time to answer. "Good heavens!" exclaimed another in a load aside, pulling off his eoat - Tbe official, still muffled in his over coat, and shivering, went over again and looked at tbe thermometer. A clerk had in the meantime applied the lighted end of a cigar to the bulb, and the mercury had jumped to 80. "Dear me!" said the official. "I am afraid Tnt going to be sick-" After a little he pulled on his gloves and started for home, took quinine and whisky, and went to bed.

Con sidered from a mcturesnue tourist's point of view, the hopper is an uncon- venuonai-iooKing person, wno camps about on the river bank in a manner not unsuggestive of the aboriginal sav age. 'Camps" is exactly the right word for rows of tents placed in the line of military precision are to be seen in the fields. Here the hopper just come from Whitechapel cooks his dinner at a gypsy-fire, and his squaw mends rags close by. . In other places tbe gypsy- urea ana rag-menuiog go ou uuuer a convenient hedge. Elsewhere two old women, of witch-like features, may be found, with half a dozen children about them, squatting under the protection of a steam roller, ihree crooked sucks cropped np acrainst one another over - .. .... , about aa mucn nro as wouia nil a mod erate sized saucer stand in front, and at thia kitchen they are cooking something mysterious in a passing strange fashion. Hoopers are of all ages, of both sexes. and, as far as can be seen, of various ranks. The great majority are ragged enough, though, even about them there is a vague something wbicn suggests that tbe rags are at least partly volun tary. Many are obviously too well lea to belong to tbe utterly poor who go half-naked; and if their attire is of the roughest, it may be partly because tbey are too wise to camp out in more decent raiment . They have bundles, obviously full of something, with them, and a large variety of pots and pans. Now and then one sees men, and even wo men, amonr them wbo belong, appar ently, to the class of work eoic in pretty regular employment At times, to be sure, one catches sight of a close cropped bullet head, suggestive of a very recent "six months;" but it is the excep tion. Cm tbe whole, the hoppers give one the impression that thev are a much more orderly body than seems consistent with the nomadic nature of their trade. For many of them, indeed, the work is regular enough. lucre are some fami lies which come yearly to tbe same farms, and write carefully beforehand to ask when the hopping is to begin. On the whole, the hopping season seems to represent their month at the sea-side a holiday of work under healthy condi tions. In rainy weather they must have a bad time, particularly those who are lodged in tents. A large proportion are put into lone outhouses, built for the purpose, and used for no other. These sheds are wind and water tight and abundant clean straw is supplied for beds. Though not luxurious, these bouses are not actually indecent, and are decidedly superior to the average London slum. Doctor Johnson, who believed in the healthiness of Londoners. would have been gratified to learn that tho KsnJ farmers prefer the town hop pers to the country, or. as thev are called, borne hoppers, because the form er stana baa weather better than the Others, who have been accustomed to aa open-air life all their days. In point to character, the hopper reaches to a cer tain level of respectability. He or she belongs to tne race oi Autolycus.
