Trial of tha A. K. C,
Special to the Herald.
New Bedford, Mase., Sept. 6.—The
break in the ranks of the mill ownera is
Widening. A number of them favor a
compromise with tbe strikers, and it ia
understood etepa to tbis end have been
taken. The manufacturers' proposition
Is to start up at a reduction of 5 per
jent, instead of 10 per cent, the cut to
be restored when the cloth market
reaches 3 centa. Tbia proposition, it ie
understood, the operatives have re
jected, claiming that when the market
reaches 3 cents the time will come for
an increase in wajiea. A number oi
directors and stockholders are beginning
to be dissatisfied with the present con
dition of ail'aira and want tbem taken
buck at the old schedule, stating the
mills can then make money.
The directora of the Bristol corpora
tion thia afternoon practically decided
to start up on Monday next.

Out In New York.
New York, Sept. 6.—Four local as
semblies of tbe Knights of Labor inter
ested in tbe clothing trade struck this
afternoon. About 11,1)1)0 man end
women left work. Tho knighta in ths
tailor trade claim to be suffering from
the same grievance complained of by
the other workmen connected with the
Federation of Labor. Aa a reeult
of a conference held today between the
committee of the contractors' association
and another from the body of Btrikera
the former agreed to all the demands of
their old employees. Ten hours will
hereafter constitute a day's work.
Fifty-nine hours, a week of six dayß, is
all that will be asked for, overtime
to be paid ior extra. This agreement
doea not alfect the action of the Knighta
of Labor, who struck for the aame con
cession today. It is said 10,000 or 17, ■
000 knighta in tbe trade in the city,
Brooklyn and Brownsville will be out at
noon tomorrow.

had a meeting this afternoon with a
committee from the Btrikera, and agreed
to take back tbe strikers without the
conditions which tbe contractors yeeter
day demanded.
O. It. & If. Employees Want Their Old
Itate of Pay.
Portland, Ore., Sept. 6. —A petition
signed by five representatives of aa
many operating departments of the
O. it. & N. system has been filed in tbe

court to revoke the schedule which Re
ceiver McNeill put into effect the lßt of
September, and requiring him to oper
ate his trust under tbe earns wage
schedules which prevailed while the O.
B. &N. was a portion of tho Union
Pacific syetom. Two thinge are claimed
' by tbe petitioners—one of them ie that
Receiver McNeill is legally held to obey
the mandates of the United States
court at Omaha, which controla tha
Union Pacific receivership; the other is
that this new wage schedule ia not
based ou fairness to tho men. It ia ex
pected that the petition will receive au
early huuring.

Estimates recently made place the

cautions to guard Chinese residents
against molestation or annoyance. An
imperial decree, guaranteeing their se
curity was issued early this month and
ordora for their protection havo been
sent all over the empire. Not a single
esse of ill-treatment ia reported.
In China a different state of things
exists. The shopa of merchants are
broken open, their contents pillaged
and tbe ownera beaten and maimed.
From every port storiea of robbery and
violence are received. Tbe outragea are
not committed upon private citizens
alone. When tbe Japanese coneul at
Tien • Tsien left tbat town, he
embarked with hia family up
on a British steamer for Shanghai. Thie
ahip wae invaded, not by a mob, but by
a force of Chinese eoldiers, who seized
not only the men of the party, but aleo
tbe ladies and tbeir female attendants,
and carried them and their baggage to
tbeir barrncka, some distance away,
where they were detained all night. The
Indies were roughly handled, ornamenta
being torn from their hair. Ne explana
tion or excuse was given when the vic
tims were released, nor wore the valua
bles restored.
It ia due to the viceroy, Li Hung
Chang, to cay that on learning the facta
from the United States minister—to
whom Japanese interests in China are
at preeent confided —ho declared bis re
gret, and promleed tbat restitution
ahould be made and pnniabment inflict
ed on the aggressors. It ia supposed
that he'was partly influenced by the
representatives of the Chinese envoy
lately in Tokio, who, before quitting bia
poet, telegraphed to Pekin au account of
the measures taken by the Japanese
government for the protection of Chi
In accordance with Chinese official
usage, the diplomatic agent, Yuan, who
fled laat month from Seoul, hae been
disavowed and disgraced. The civil
service of that country allows great lati
tude to every incumbent, but hie re
sponsibility ia aa extreme aa hia privil
eges, and if he fails to satisfy hia supe
riors be ia doomed. Even if ac faith
fully follows inatructions and evil conse
quences ensue, he is often made a scape
goat to aave those above him from
destruction. In thie case Yuan was
merely the mouthpiece of Li Hung
Chang. Every etep taken by bim was
in pursuance of the viceroy's commands.
But when the catastrophe came and
Yuan took refuge in Tien-Taiu, all the
blame waa thrown upon hia shoulders.
For two weeks hia place of concealment
waa unknown, and yesterday a report of
bia death was circulated—presumably
by suicide.
Even tbe great viceroy, the foremost
subject of tbe empire, bas not
escaped accountability for the cap
ture ot the Chinese ship of war, and
the abandonment of another, in the
fight near Asan. He haß been deprived
of one of bia highest decorations, and
cemmiasionera have been sent by the
Ssung-Li-Yamen to watch hie proceed
ings and report to the general govern
ment. This laat step is believed to bave
been taken in consequence of the Li's
tardineaa in forwarding bad newß to the
capital. Though the eea tight took
place July 25, he sent no report of it
till August 17, and then said nothing
about tbe loss of the warshipe, recount
ing only the sinking of the Kow Siting,
with 1100 troops. In spite of Li's preo
tige and rank, he is liable to capital
punlehinont if tbe Chinese forces under
go many diaaaters.
On August 18th the Japanese govern
ment announced the issue of war bonds
to the amount of 30,000,000 yen, equiv
alent to about $15,000,000, each bond
ior 100 yen at interest of 5 per cent. The
low denomination ia to enable persons
of limited means to invest. Applications
are already numerous, although the
time fixed for tbeir reception ia Septem
ber i:;th. Many foreign subacriptiona
aro expected.
The only loss to the Japanese thus
far, apart from casualties in battle, is
that of tbe merchaet ship Tenkyu, a
sailing vessel of 1000 tons. She carried
a cargo lor tbeChineae government from
YezO to Taku, and during her voyage
war was declared. Ou arriving, in ig
norance o! the situation, she was seized
aud her cargo confiscated. The Japaneee
complain of this proceeding, citing the
rule of European international law,
which forbids capture under similar cir

is waged on behalf of, not against Corea.

Dr. Martin Thinks Neither. Nation Is
Capable of Winning;.
San Francisco, Sept. ().—Dr. W. A, P.
Martin, for many years legal adviser to
the Chinese government on all questions
of international law, arrived on the
steamer Belgic and is at tho Occidental
for a fuw days. Dr. Martin haß been a
resident of China for over 30 years,
barring tho time tbat he has spent in
tbis country on official visits. He has
been one of the Chinese government's
representatives whenever a treaty
haa been drawn up, and em
ployed his time valuably in looking
after the interests of China iv the eoiu
tion of international problems. He ie
tbe individual who first taught tho
heads of the Chinese government that
there was such a thing as international
law. He mastered the language of the
mandarine and translated two entire
booke, viz: Professor Wooleoy on In
ternational Law, and Wheaton on In
ternational Law. Those translations
were subsequently nsed as a baois of
translation of the two works into the
Japanese language for the u:o of the
Japanese government.
Dr. Martin ia inclined to the belief
that the preeent Btruggle between
Japan and China will be a prolonged
one and thinks it will result iv a draw.
He does not believe either nation com
petent of whipping the other. He has
come to America in search of health.
He earn he needs a rest and change of
climate and intends to make hia visit
a prolonged oue.
Precautions to Prevent the Landing of
Japanese Tro rps ia Chlnn.
San Francisco, Sept. o.—According to
advices from Shanghai by the Peru this
morning, every effort is being made to
prevent the landing of Japanese forces
in China. To that end all the fortifica
tions are being heavily garrisoned and
torpedoes are placed at the entrance to
the harbors.
Some 500 contact torpedoos have been
laid in the north channel and eleewhere
about Shanghai, bnt they are too deep
to interfere with the eaiety of the ordi
nary coasting steamers at high water.
When the tide ia out, however, there ia
but little room to epare between these
torpedoes and tne veseel'e bottome, and
navigation ia a matter of much danger.
The Japan Gazette learns that tho

cruieer which has been engaged witb
Chinese vessels on Bevoral uceasioua

has not entirely escaped injury ns has

Enameling Cast Iron.
It is noted as n somewhat singular
fact the.t there tiro not noro thau two
processes for enameling cast iron, not
withstanding tho amount of iiigenions
effort put forth in this direct ion. Ono
of these is tho hot process in which tho
iron, heated to n vivid rod, is powdered
with a flux powder, borosilicato of lend
distributed with a sieve, then heated,
aud when the flux fuses it If powdered
afresh with glass moro soluble, forming
tho glazo of tho enamel, but this opera
tion is attended witti danger and is not
adapted to large articles or for decora
tion. Tho second process, which meets
tho objections named, consists In dress
ing or coating tho articlo first with mag
netic oxide, then dipping it in borosili
cates of lead, colored by metallic oxides,
to which is added n little pipo clay, iv
crrder to givo rather more body. The
article thus covered cold, hy dipping or
with brushes, is put into tho furnace,
tho enamel adhering and vitrifying at
the usual furnace temperature used by
cnamelcr?, mid by putting a coating of
colored enamel with a brush on a first
coat simply plain it is possible to make
any decorations desired, which may be
burnt in at ono operation for outdoor
y.ases, fejijj,—Now York Sur.

That's what they say of the pale,
weak woman who's "run-flown" and
overworked. Probably she knows
it herself. But there's one thing
she canH know, or she wouldn't
feci so and look so — and that is,
that Dr. Pierces Favorite Proscrip
tion is guaranteed to help her.
It's a legitimate medicine, made
especially for woman's needs; an in
vigorating, restorative tonic and a
soothing and strengthening nervine,
imparting tone and vigor to the
whole system.
But it isn't a mere stimulant. It's
a remedy, safe and sure, for all tho
functional derangements, painful dis
orders, and chronic weaknesses that
make women suffer. In " fomr.le
complaints" of every kind, periodical
pains, internal inflammation, ulcera
tion, and kindred ailments, it's guar
anteed to benefit or cure, or the
money is returned.
No other medicine for women is
sold so. Proof that nothing else is
"ju3t as good."
