Onr Lift Saving Service
Washington, Nov. 28*—The report
of the Life Saving Service shows that at the
close of the last fiscal year that establish
ment embraced 211 stations, 165 being on the
Atlantic, thirty-eight on the lakes, seven on
the Pacific and one at the falls of the Ohio,
at Louisville, Kentucky. The number of
disasters to documented vessels during the
year was 822.
The report says the number, violence ami
destructiveness of the storms which oc
curred during the year exceeded the record
of any previous year since the general ex
tension of the sendee to the sea and lake
coasts. In one storm there were no less than
thirty ship-wrecks within the scope of the
oj>erations of the sendee, and in a single
day (the ninth of January') there were twen
ty-three. Tiie sendee, however, did not fail
to match its previous record of effectiveness
in saving life and property. The number of
casualit ies was greater by twenty-eight than
of any former year. Yet the loss of life is
fifteen less than the average, and although
the vessels and cargoes which were totally
lost were twenty more than in any former
year, the amount of property lost was only
about 965,000 greater than the average of
preceding years, while the amount saved is
increased by nearly 92,000.000.

Lincoln, Neb.. November3o.—The
following circular has been addressed by
President Fitzgerald to the State delegates
of the Irish National League of America in
view of the present crisis in Ireland:
Slit—The Tory Government of Great
Britain lias once more evinced its Incapacity
to govern Ireland by other means than co
ercion. Our brethren in Ireland are again
called upon to show by courage, suffering,
and self-sacrifice that they* are the heirs of
their father's heroism. The time has come
when we should prove by our actions that
our hearts beat in unison with theirs in a
common love for Ireland ami liberty . A
few weeks since we promised that should
England again have recourse to coercion we
would stand by them.
We must now redeem that pledge. Pub
11c meetings are proclaimed :soldiers are be
ing crowded into the country to overcome,
and should the the opportunity offer, to
slaughter the people. Prison cells
await the Nation's leaders, and every' en
gine of oppression ami unconstitutional leg
islation is about to be used to prop up tyr
anny and injustice, ami to crush the legiti
mate aspirations of Ireland. We must see to
it that our promise of assistance was no idle
boast. The State delegates are called on to
proceed at once to the work of organizing
the league in their respective States ami
I*rovinces. They should use every means to
increase tin* membership of the existing
branches and establish liewones.ami should
urge the officers of the brunches within tlieir
jurisdiction to devise means to promptly
raise funds and forward them to the Nation
al Treasurer, Rev. Charles O'Reilly, I>. 1)..
Detroit. Michigan, in aid of the anti-evic
tion fund. We must not stand idle in the
face of tiie present crisis. Experience has
proven the futility of coercion to crush a de
termined and united people. With the loyal
aid of her exiled children, Ireland mus
come out of tills struggle unconquered, un
conquerable and victorious. Yours faith

then says the Order has reached a most
critical period in its history. He refers to
a contract which tin* employes were made
to sign, conqH'lllng them to leave the

“Every man who has joined the Knights
of Labor has pledged himself to do his duty
in tiie cause of mankind. No oaths bind

which he owes to -God or ids country, hut
something more sacred even than his oath

or manly defense. Which should it lie*.*
“Iu order to alleviate the distress of many
Knights who have been thrown out of em

Executive Board unanimously resolved to

The following is going the rounds of the
press at present, and is being read with in
terest: “A curious phenomenom has just
l>een brought to light by the removal of a
lightning-rod. To the end of the rod, which
has been imbedded in ferruginous earth for
about fifteen years, was found attached a
lump of iron ore. weighing ninety-six
pounds, supposed to liave been aggregated
by the action of electricity from the sur
rounding earth.
It is reported that the old Tabor mill is to
be remodeled, refitted with crushers, pul
verizers and tables, and put in good shape
generally for the treatment of low grade
ores. We certainly wish the enterprise
success, as it will put in circulation thous
ands of dollars that are now lying useless
in the many dumps of low grade ore that
are scattered all through the camp. A good
concentrator can certainly make money if
the hand jig can.—Leadville Dispatch.
The ore product of the Man - Murphy mine
in Chaffee county for the present year has
been 12.000 tons, and the output for Decern
l>er will probably be 1.500 tons. The ore, we
believe, averages about S4O to the ton, and
as winter is the most favorable time for
working the mine, the chances are that next
> ear's product will be very largely increased
with the second tramway running. The
force at present employed in the mine is 70
men. but there are between SO and 90 on the
pay roll, including carpenters, teamsters
and other employes.—Leadville Dispatch.
