W.V8M.XOT0X, June 11.—Comment on the
alleged probability of Mr. Conkling enter
ing the Cabinet of President Arthur con
tinues to be freely made since the return of
the President from New York. As recent
ly mentioned, nothing would give the
President more pleasure than to be the
means of inducing Mr. Conkling to re-enter
public life. But it can be here stated most
positively that Mr. Conkling, unless he
should undergo a radical change of opin
ion, will not consent to come back to pub
lic life through an executive appointment.
When the President was in New York Mr.
Conkling expressed to him his sincere

he was now; that he fully recognized the

The House Committee on the Judiciary
have aathorized Representative Humphrey,
of Wisconsin, to report to the House a bill
to establish a uniform system of bank
ruptcy, and to have it made a special order
for an 'ear'y ^ in December. The bill
provides that p*.'ition creditors in cases of
involuntary bankruptcy olJ*Use^ar.^J
oefore instituting action, and that if the
suit be decided in favor of the alleged
bankrupt damages 9balI be recoverable. In
case of fraud any person may be adjudged
bankrupt, but for a f&ilure to pay within a
limited time or to dissolve an attachment,
farmers shall not be so adjudged.
The bill further provides for the
appointment of commissioners of
bankruptcy, one in each Congressional dis
trict, if necessary, who shall be paid a sala
ry of $2,000 each. Every commissioner
shall be ex officio a trustee in bankruptcy
when the value of the estate is less than
♦1,000 and in all other cases unless the
creditors ask for the appointment of a
trustee. There shall be in each district a
supervisor of oankruptcy, whose duty it
shall be to examine into all the bank*
ruptcy proceedings. No fees are provided
for any officers except the trustee and clerk.
The fees of the latter are limited by law
and those of the former are to be fixed by
the creditors or by the commissioner. No
debtor is to be arretted by warrant on a
complaint that he is about to depart until
he shall hare been summoned to show
cause. Mutual debts and credits may be
set off. There is to be no appeal from the
final decree in bankruptcy in a Circuit

of opinion between the justices of that

Washington, June 11.—At last the assas
sin Cuiteau has about Riven up hope. He
| said to-day that he did not think Reed
could do anythiug for him. "The only
person now,'' said Guiteau, "who can save
Cod's man is Mr. Arthur. I shall look to
him for a pardon." It was evident from
further remarks of Guiteau that he did not
have much faith in Arthur pardoning him.
He has become more mild now in his ac
tions and acts more like an ordinary crimi
nal who is nearing his last days of life.
Day before yesterday the assassin expressed
a desire to have spiritual advisers, as he
had been besieged by ministers represent
ing every denomination. He therefore
wanted the office performed by one man.
Guiteau having expressed a desire for
Congregational and Presbyterian ministers
in Washington. The list was furnished
and he selected the Key. Mr. Hicks, of the
tabernacle. Mr. Hicks visited the jail last
evening and conversed and prayed with
the assassin for some time. Guitean re
quested the reverend gentleman to call up
on him two or three times a week until
the day of execution. At Ouiteau's request
no other minister will be allowed to see
him. Bentley and Jones, the young reviv
alists, who had made arrangements to call
upon him. will not do so now. The assas
sin appeared more (careful and calm this
morning than he has for sometime past.
Mr. Reed said this evening that he still
thought the chances for savimr Guiteau
were good. He admitted that the time was
short for much work to be done. "I have
a go*nl many guns to tire yet," said Reed.
•'1 shall get them all off too."

AVasiuxgtox, June 10.—For several years
the printers employed at the government
printing office have been demanding an in
crease from forty to sixty cents per hour
for time worked after midnight. They at
tempted to coerce the late public printer,
Detrees, into yielding to their demands, but
a* the law rtxed the price paid for
composition, be declined to be dictated to
or to make any concessions, and by his
firmness prevented a strike. The printers
have become bolder now since Mr. Hounds
became public printer, probably because
he is a strong believer in labor organiza
tions and labor unions, and have de
termined to renew their former de
mands, and to force a compliance or insti
tute a strike. They have served notice
upon him that unless he allows sixty cents
for time-work per hour, after midnight,
they will quit their cases and stop all work
in tlie composing room. What the out
come of the matter will be cannot now be
safely predicted. If a strike occurs Con
grats will undoubtedly enact some legisla
tioa so as to prevent the office from being
controlled by the Typographical Union, the
feeling in the Senate being very strong
upon this point The art of February 1«.
I 1877, prohibits the public printer from
paying more than fifty cents per thousand
ems and forty cents per hour for time work
to printers and book-binders.

Priee ut July Deliveries.
Csuwoo, JnneJO.—It is said that the
wheat syndicate has been re-enforced by P.
D. Armour, of Chicago, and one or two
Milwaukee capitalists, and that the largest
deal ever attempted in this country will
soon be under way. The market on regu
lar So. 2 for July has been oversold during
the last few days not less than 20,00*.000
bushels, and members of the clique talk
about making the shorts settle at 12 a
br.sfsel. It is reported that the agents of
the new combination bare been going
around among vessel owners for two days
past chartering boats, and that by Monday
not less than 1,000,000 bushels of wheat
now in store here will be on the way East.
It is predicted that by Jtily 1 there will
not be 1^00,000 bushels of old wheat in the
Chicago elevators. The scheme is to dis
tribute the gram among the New England
millers, where it will go into consumption.
If this plan is carried out it will leave the
combination wiih nothing to do but to look
after the new No. 2 winter, which will
come in during the month of July. The
new rule making winter wheat regular,
which it is thought would prevent cor
ners, has had no such effect. Speculation
waa more active to-day thvn it has been for

CoLCMBrfi,O., June 11.—Parties interested
in the Standard Coal and Oil Company are
on a tour of inspection of the coal and iron
lands, furnaces, and other interests of the
Mocking Valley. They visited a great
number of places, and are trying to com
bine the mining interests of the State, to
gether with the furnace*, railroads, and
other interests connected therewith. The
only trouble experienced in effecting this
combination is with the Hocking Vallev
Railroad, and if no compromise is effected
with it, the Standard Company will build a
railroad of its own from this city to the

questions are out of the way. as terms can

Pittsbi*ro, Juno 9.—You have been in
formed of the daily changes in the situation
in labor circles, in this city, since my last
letter, and this morning there is very little
new to be told. The principal subject of
conversation is Wednesday's meeting of
manufacturers. There is quite a diversity
of opinion regarding the tinal results of
that meeting, some professing to believe
that it foreshadows the defeat of the Amal
gamated Association, while others take ex
actly the opposite view. The officers of the
Association say that the? would like to soe
the manufacturers form a permanent union
among themselves, so that they could deal
with them M a body, thns avoidiy the
" CTiJufcTeaome fights with tnamauBs, fb
which they are now compelled to resort to
gain their ends.
It ia a very difficult thing to form an
opinion upon the future course of the man
ufacturers. The proceedings of their meet
ing are supposed to be kept a profound
secret and all that has been learned has
been gathered a little here and a little there.
Although it is given out that entire har
mony prevailed, it is i retty well known
that such was not the caso. There was har
mony only in one particular, and that was
in the desire to devise some means of de
\ Demands of the Ion.
But while thert was a ha/iuony of desires,
there was by no means a harmony of opin
ions in the method to be pursued in ac
complishing these desires.
A resolution to hold out against the ad
vanced scale was passed with but one dis
senting voice, that of Mr. McDonald, of St.
Louis. That gentleman, in an interview
yesterday said that he did not speak for his
fellow manufacturers, and that he was only
compelled to vote against the resolution in
the form in which it was put, on account
of the very peculiar situation in which his
mill was placed. He explained this to the
meeting when'it was perfectly satisfied with
his vote. While voting no, he assured the
assembly that St. Louis would work
shoulder to shoulder with Pittsburg and
other cities in resisting the unreasonable
demands of the Amalgamated Association
One Beligerent Y ember
introduced a resolution that no union men
be hereafter employed at any of the mills
there represented. This raised a very
animated discussion, when it appeared that
the member introducing the resolution
stood almost alone in advo 'iMng it. Such
a policy was Regarded by tlie majority as
suicidal. It was claimed that it would only
result h» strengthening the determination
of the members of the Association, and
also in causing many non-union men to
tiock to its standard. The right of the
laboring classes to form associations was
clearly recognized.
Statements have been made in the city
papers that Mr. McDonald was the only
representative from St. Louis at the con
ference. Such is not the case. Mr. Paul A.
Fusz, of the Laclead rolling mills and Mr.
Niedringham, and both voted for the reso
lution to fight the Association. Other
Western cities were also well represented.
A Prominent Mnnafnt-tnrer
said to me yesterday that he did not think
ceed in defeating the demands of the Asso
ciation, and when asked for a reason pro
ceeded as follows: "It has come too late.
The organization should have been effected
before the strike came on. At that time it
would have been comparatively easy to
have agreed upon some basis of organiza
tion, and when the strike came all would
have been bound by their pledges. Now
the strike is upon us and peculiar circum
stances surround each individual firm.
Each man can see what will be for his own
advantage and will not go into a combina
tion that may result in loss. He is bound
by no pledge, and if it appears to be to his
interest to sign the srale he will do so.
For this reason 1 believe the efforts at
union will amount to nothing at present
Those who do not attend the meeting are
as numerous as those who did. The only
inference that can be drawn from their ab
sence is that they intend to act for them
these firms will sign the scale, and the re
sult will be that the rest will be compelled
to do likewise. Unless there is a union of
all the union of a few will be as no union
at all."
Notwithstanding the confidence express
ed by the officers of the Amalgamated As
sociation last week, that a number of firms
would sign the scale within a few days,
none yet have done so, in addition to those
who signed within a few days after the
strike was inaugurated. But one rolling
mill in this district has signed the scale:
Carnegie's 1'nion Mills, but as I said last
week they are about to shut down for re
pair, which it will take two months to
complete. There will not then be a
Single Boiling Mill
in full operation, in this whle region ex
cept that of Dilworth, Porter A: Co.. which
employs no puddlere. All of the steel
mills, with two exceptions, have signed the
scale and are in full operation. The excep
tions are the works of James Park, Jr., and
Miller. Metcalf & Parkin, both of whom de
clare they will, in no event sign the pres
ent scales.
The ex)>eriment of running with non
union men, which is being tried at Klo
rnan's mill, is being Wtetched with much
■"♦erest. About two hundred men are
now at worn, of them are skilled

green hands. He is a man ot £tOt deter
mination and can carry such a J'dieme
through, if any one can. It is repof(f*d
that saveral other mills will soon try the
same experiment.
The strikd has already resulted in the loss
of a

railroad, which, on account of their inabil
ity to fill it in time, has now been placed
with a Trenton. N, J, firm. Other l*g»
orders have also gone to Eastern points.
I'pon the whole, the situation at pre5>ent
is about the same as at the time of my last,
except that the manufacturers seem to be
more determined.

The Coal NlUUUa.
The situation in the Fan Handle coal re
gion grows more serious. There are now
six of the twenty-one mines forking with
"black sheep." Most of those who have
taken the places of the striking miner? are
colored men. but a number of white men
are also at work. Sjme of the coal com
panies have stationed agents at the railroad
depots who have seized upon all the immi
grants who come in. and wherever they can
secure a miner, or can indnce some one who
knows nothing about the work to try it,
he is sent ont t> the mines. In thii

' CLaviLAKn. June 10.—'"More men at work
than oo any day since the strike began,",
said Hu officers of the Cleveland Rolling
Mill Company yesterday, and, after a tour
of tlUfdepartments, a leader reporter de
cided that they spoke truly. The rail mill
was running with a slightly increased force
of nie^ted one hundred and twelre rails
Wen timed out before the workmen quit
i®',fcfock in the afternoon. It wae stated
that one hundred and fifty rail/ would
have been made but for- the twisting of a
rail around the rollers, or the formation of
a "collar" as it is technically termed. In
the wire mill one man brought in forty
new men, and there was a considerably n
crease in the number of .men at work,
while the Siemens-Martin furnace was run
ning with nearly a full force.
It must be borne in m:nd, however, that
the rail mill, Seimens-Martin furnace, and
wire mill do not constitute all the depart
ments of the rolling millt and that the
others are ahut down entirely. It is re
ported that the men in the carpenter shop
took their tools home yesterday, and will
not return to work again until the conclu
sion of the strike. The steel mill, the soft
steel mill, and the two rod mills are
Shnt Down Entirely,
while in the mschine shops but two men
were visible yesterday. Mr. Chisholm was
questioned as to whether these other depart
ments will start up next week, when he
claims many additional men will go to work.
He said it was impossible to say what
would be done next week, as he had not yet
concluded what he would do then.

Cinc innati, June 10.—At nine o'lock this
forenoon a committee of workmen from the
iron mills met the proprietors of the mills
and made an agreement with them to
eliminate the word "forever" from the con
tract, and to go to work on Monday on the
terms of the contract of last October, thus
amended. Prices at present will be the same
as when they quit, and will so remain until
the scale is fixed at Pittsburgh, when that
will be the Cincinnati scale.
Cincinnati, June 10.—John Jarrett was
interviewed at his hotel to day, and here is
the result:
"When did you airive, Mr. Jarrett?"
"This morning, from Pittsburg."
"Is there any prospect of an adjustment
of the dittioulty there
"1 think so; the mills are now undergo
ing repairs, which are badly needed, the
proprietors having taken advantage of the
present suspension of their business. As
soonfas the work of repairing is finished I
believe operations will be resumed."
"Will you attend the meeting in Coving
ton this afternoon ?"
"Yes, that's what I am here for, princi
"What do you think of the situation in
this city?"
"If I have an opinion to express, the
time to do it will be at the meeting in Cov
COiYsul«€.*«'8 ev?Pl.-G,inen, and have ah Op
portunity to obtain a broader view. The
mill owners are still determined to abide
by the agreement of last October."
"They are ?"
"Yes, and they say this will be done until
Pittsburgh adopts a scale, if operations are
not resumed for six months. Well, I think*
something definite will be accomplished at
the meeting this afternoon."
"How long will you remain here, Mr.
"Several days."
"Where do you go next, to Chicago?"
"I don't know; but I think I shall."
"What is the general situation of the
country elsewhere, generally, in regard to
the iron strike?"
"Well, this is the greatest strike in the
history of the Association. There are near
ly seventy thousand men in fhe Western
mi.Is, and over forty of them are in the
strike. I don't think there will be any ad
justment in the country till the men suc
ceed. The demand at Pittsburgh is for an
increase of nearly ten per cent to rollers
and puddlers, and a reduction of the ton
from twenty-four sixty-four, to twenty-two
forty pounds. I believe there are pros
pects of ultimate success."

Milwaukee, June 10.—The conference
bad to-day between the officials of the
Xorth Chicago Rolling Mill Company and
the Bayview men bore little fruit Vice
President Bullock had not returned from
Pittsburg, so that it would have been diffi
cult to make any definite agreement. J. C.
Parkes was present from Chicago. Messrs.
Hinton and W. B. Parkes of the Milwaukee
staff of the company were also on hand.
Deputations from Lodge No. 1 (the pud
dlers) and from Lodge Xo. li (the Merchant
mill men) were also on hand. The rail
mill men of lodge No. 2 wj-re not repre
sented, taking the position that those
joining in the strike, they would not, by
being present at the conference, assume
that they b*d any difference to settle with
the conipany. Elaborate addresses were
made on both sides. The officials stated
their position, and the workmen frankly
stated what they deemed fair for botn
sides. Concessions are certainly to be
made, unless prevented by the Pittsburg
authorities. The men are nearly all anxious
to resume work, and the nsmost good feel
ing prev#'ls all around. Another confer
ence will be uiH *«k, by which
time the men will know to what extent
the Amalgamated Association will endorse
the expected compromise. The Bayview

Fbostih ri., Mrt,- June 10.—About of
the new miners went into the Kcfcha.rt
mine to-day. The others were employed
about the place in various rare,- some mak
ing tags for the cars and dtlieft making
Srags with which to govern the speed of
e cars in the mine. The output of coal
was 228 tons, of which 169 tons were
shipped to Cumberland. The output
would bare been greater, but cars in suffi
cient numbers were not furnished the
miners. About five tons of the roof of one
of the rooms in the mine fell in this after
noon. but fortunately no one was hurt It
is noted that amon g the new miners there
is not an Irishman, 8ontchman, English
man nor Welshman.
Several additional Cumberland men have
come to Camp Mayer, and three men from
that town joined the police force at Eckhart
Unlay. Fourteen new men for the police
arrived from Baltimore to-day, and a new
squad will be formed and placed in charge
of Sergeant W. C. Walters. The Knight* of
labor have issued an address asking all
miners to stay away from the Cumberland
coal regions until the differences between
the companies and the miners have been
settled. It ia stated that a large iam of
money reached here today from outside
sources for the benefit of old miners who
may be in need of assistance. No distinc
tion ia made, and whether a man
is a member of tbe Knights of
Labor or not he receives what
aid he may require, the only requisite be
ing that he ia a miner. A gentleman who
has the funds in hands ia furnished by a
committee a list of those who may need pe
cuniary assistance. He calls upon them,
and if they desire it furnishes tbem with
money and aupplies. It is not known when
tbe next installment of new labor will ar

Chicago, June 10.—Casper Bey bolt, is a
baker and works at night. When he left
home, last evening, his wife began prepara
tions for a horrible deed. They had four
children aged 12, 7, 2% years and a baby
four "months old. She dressed them ia
fresh white clothes, with bright ribbons,
gave them strychnine, and when they died
laid them out carefully with (lowers in
their hands and all surroundings made as
beautiful as possible. Then she too took a
dose of poison herself, having
also put on a fresh white chimese
with ribbons in it. This was just before
the return of her husband, at five o'clock
this morning. When he appeared at the
door she met him aad told him to come in
Vend see the children all dead and gone to
heaven. See how pretty thev were, with
nicfe Howers for angles. One of the children
was alive but has since died. Mrs. Seybolt
died about seven o'clock this morning. The

Nrw York, June 10.—News has reached
this city of the mysterious foundering at sea
of the British steamer Penendo, May 8th,
about twenty miles northeast of Porto
Santo, one of the Maderia Islands. The
vessel was from Rio Janeiro for Glasgow,
and circumstances attending the loss show
how weak may be a British built
steamship. The Penendo was an iron ves
sel of 1,029 tons gross register, built at
West Hartlepool, England, in 1872, hence
she could not be termed an old vessel.
From statements of twenty-two of the crew
who were saved out of a total of twenty-six,
it appears^that in a moderate head sea, she
cracked amidships, her decks started up,
and she foundered in two minutes after
ward. Fifteen of the crew managed- to
save themselves in one of the boats. Seven
others were saved by clinging to some of
the wreckage, and four were drowned.

Nichoi.a8vii.le, June 10.—This usually
quiet and Christian little city waa startled
this afternoon by three sharp cracks of a
pistol. Soon it became known that .Sydney
Baxter, formerly of Winchester, Ky., had
been fatally shot by Eddie Hull. Both are
young men, well known throughout Cen

has been clerk at the Hotel Veranda, and
Hull is assisting his father, Rev. B. O.
Hull, who runs a carriage shop in connec
tion with his ministry.
Three shots were fired, two taking effect,
the mortal one hitting Baxter in the right
epigastric region, penetrating the liver and
lungs. His attending physicians Ray it is
only a question of a few hours when the
wounded man will climb the golden stairs.
Baxter, who is now sinking rapidly, sent
for Hull, kissed him three times and for
gave him. The cause of the difficulty was

Why Tbree Men Wei* Lynched.
St. Loiis, Mo., June 11.—The lynching
of the three negroes, Vinegard, Robinson
and King, at Lawrence, Kansas, early
Saturday morning, was because, from their
own confession and the testimony given at
the examination, it was conclusively
shown they were the murderers of I>avid
Bausman, whose dead body was found in
Kansas river ten days ago. Bausman had
just arrived from Brookville, Ohio, and in
tended to settle near Lawrence, where he
had two brothers. He had considerable
monev, which fact the negroes discovered,
and with the aid of a ne^rogirl, a datable r>
of Vinegard, enticed him down to the
river bank, where they* crushed his skull
with a hammer, and threw the body into
the river.

Dihlin, June 11.—The Irish biahopehare
issued an important address, promising the
support of the clergy to tne people in
peacefully agitation for their rights, bnt
condemning as the worst enemies of the
country, men who recommend illegal
courses, particularly those belonging to
secret societies. The bishops condemn the
recent horrible murders, but believed they
were due to evictions, which it is the duty
of the government to stop at any cost
The Bisbops point out that what is morally
wrong cannot be politically right. It is the i
indisputable right, they say. of the Irish
to live on their own soil. It is right and
often the duty of those oppressed either
by the State or by individuals, to seek re
dress by lawful means.
On these grounds the national movement
lias the approval of the l'resipenta and
liishops, and even the Pope, and of all
just and generous meA, without distinction
of race or creed; bnt it is notorious, the
means often employed are utterly subvers
ive of social order.
The address specifies these means as re
fusing to pay just debts, preventing the
payment by others, injuring neighbors in
nersen or property, forcibly resisting the
law, and forming secret societiee and obey
ing the orders thereof.
The Bishops say that under each of thase
heads numerous offenses have been commit
ted, fearfully protninentamongthem being
the hideous murders, which even at the
present moment disgrace our country and
provoke the anger of God and his church.
We declare it is your duty to regard as the
worst enemy of our creed and oountry the
man who would recommend the commis
sion of any one of the above named offenses.
We appeal to all to have no connection
with secret aocieties. but to oppose them as
alike hostile to religion.
Let us assure you your national move
ment purged of what is criminal, shall
liave the earnest support of the clergy. A
been, within the last lew years, conceded
to tenant farmers, but to them ami to
other classes, particularly laborers, much
more is due. It is the duty both of the
clergy snd the people to pre«s their claims
in every peaceable and just manner; bnt
the clergy can countenance no illegal
means, nor be the sowers of d'ssension.
The bishops express the belief that the
late crimes woula never have occurred if
the people had not been driven to despair by
evictions, justly described by the Premier
as sentences of death, and which must be
a fatal and permanent provocative of crime,
to which it is the dutv of the government
to put an end as speedily as possible, at any
The address concludes with a paatoral
blessing. It is signed by by Cardinal Mac
C&be. Archbishop McCettigan, Preniate of
