It is said that a convention of coal min ers in the whole bituminous district of Pennsylvania has decided to order a gen eral strike. This will call about 20,000 men out of the mines.

Six per sons were arrested Sunday evening for ap proaching within 300 paces of the Czar's soldiers.

The past ten days in Chicago have constituted a heated term, its intensity be ing almost unprecedented in the history of the city. The thermometer has rarely dropped below seventy-five degrees, and has risen to ninety degrees. A peculiarity of the season has been the fact that the nights have afforded a sultriness continu ing very evenly through the full twenty four hours . At 7 o'clock Tuesday morn in the thermometer registered 82. Seven thousand men were in line Mon day night in parade in honor of Governor Cleveland. The procession was two hours in passing the reviewing stand. Af ter the parade w as dismissed the Governor entered the hotel and held an informal re ception. In the course of the evening the Governor was presented with a banner bearing his portrait. The head was en circled by four stars, typifying "Sobrie tv." "Justice," "Honesty" and "Reform." Behind the hills was the sun just risiog and labeled "Victory." After a general handshaking the Governor retired for the night. Operating in Corn. Chicago, September 8. —The life of the speculative markets on exciiange is at present centred in the corn pit. For weeks it has been freely stated that the September option was "coopered," that all the spot stuff was in the hands of one or two powerful traders and that at the proper time the screws would certainly be turned on: yet the big bears did not scare. They argued that prices were already far above their level with reference to other articles, that farmers' bins were overflowing with last year's grain and that the new crop was likely to be enormous. Hence Nat Jones, Cantner, Bloom Bod man and Charlie Schwartz, with their followings, sold early and late, while such operators as Baker, Sherwin and Dows quietly put away all offerings at the same time taking good care that only a very small amount of the current receipts—for which, by the way, there has all along been a splendid shipping demand even at a premium over the option—remained in Chicago. Now this enormous short inter est is beginning to be badly shaken up by the rapid falling off in the number of cars coming in. In anticipation of a very large yield they have not alone discount ed a future not yet revealed but have con tracted to deliver property at a time when the next crop, whatever its size, can be of no possible aid to them. Receivers say, that attracted by the fine figures which the cereal lias maintained for the past few w'eeks, the country has already marketed all the grain that could possibly be scraped together. "Farmers have not enough left to feed the boys on," said J. W. Bliss this morning. The whole of the next two crops, however, would not be sufficient to fill the September and Oct ober contracts. 'Will the deal be likely to extend in to October?" 'Of course it will. 'Old Hutch' has got the 'boys' just as securely as Armour had the sellers of pork. There is noth ing left for them to do but settle." Wheat is quiet, although the general feeling appears to be improving. The opinion is gaining ground among traders that perhaps this year's crop is not such a tremendous one after all. The threshing machine has so far produced nothing like the results anticipated, w T hile the inspec tion report here shows that scarcely 20 percent of the receipts àre grading No. 2 or better. There are, however, in the market at the present time, a large num ber of little fellows wiio are "long." On the slightest upturn they are eager to realize, thus preventing any important bugle, and the bears declare that after the close of navigation they w ill be able to mark quotations down in short order. Provisions are tame. A number of traders arc loading up with lard and ribs, in the hope that the lack of corn iu the country will cause the hogs to come to market in such bad condition that a boom will be inaugurated iu those articles; but if poor hogs were all that were needed this result would have occurred some time ago, as for weeks a large proportion of the animals arriving have been sent back to feeders in the countrv. Heavy Storm at St. Paul. A dispatch dated at St. Paul on the 9th says : Heavy rain and thunder storms pre vailed in this vicinity since 4 o' clock this afternoon, and at this writing, midnight, rain is falling in blinding sheets. Trains on all the roads centering here are delayed by washouts. No reports received yet of damage by wind or lightning, but it is feared from the character of the storm here that damage has been done west of this city. A later report says: It is reported here that the storm last night caused the most disastrous washout ever known on the Omaha road, near Eau Claire. Trains of that road are compelled to run into this city over the Milwaukee road via Camp Douglass. inai Mettles at. , [Nym Crinkle.] If to be monotonous is to be gifted; if to be one good actor in a group is to be representative; if to walk a chalk line is to go upward ; if to present one repertoire in one- way for twenty-five years and to get the same unvarying eulogium^ for its success—then Mr. Booth, no less than Joe Jefferson, de serves well of fame, and need bother no more about what other people do.
