Mitt Amelia Denny Nearly Meets
Death From Fire,
Caused by the Explosion of an Oil Can in
Her Hands as She is Attempting
to Build a Fire in a
A terrible accident occurred yeetorday
afternoon to Miss Amelia Denny, who lires
on Wetzel street, between Thirty-seventh
and Thirty-eighth streets, Eighth ward, that
may yet result in her death, although
chances are in her favor. It is a repetition
of that oft told tale of suffering caused
from not heeding former horrible and fatal
About 4 o'clock Miss Denny, who is
about 18 years of age, and daughter of
Gott'eib Denny, start»! to make a fire in
the kitchen store, presumably
However, the young lady says she ap
plied no oil to the fire but as she
took off the stopper, the oil
exploded and set fire to her clothing. She
immediately ran out upon the street scream
ing for help, and a gentleman named
George Robinson, who was near, rushed to
the rescue. He procured a blanket from
the house and wrapped it around her body,
which was by this time entirely
which were every moment making her life
This had tke effect of smothering tin
flames and he carried the young lad; into
the house and immediately called Dr. Ford,
of Benwood, who came and did all that
medical science could do to ease the pain
suffered by Miss Denny.
It was found that she was burned terribly
from her waist down to her kneee, and her
face and upper part of her body were also
her hair being burned almost off close to the
head. A corset which she wore saved the
central portion of her body almost entirely
from injury—one case where that part of
feminine wearing apparel did some good.
At a late hour last night she was reported
ss getting along very well, and in a fair way
of recovery.
Another Case at Elm Grove.
About o'clock last night, as Mrs. Martin
Prettjman, living at Kim Grove, was at
tempting to light a fire with a can of oil the
vessel exploded with a reportlike a cannon.
A number of neighbors rushed into the
house, where the poor woman was found
lying on the floor enveloped in flames,
which hai also been communicated
to a crib containing an infant.
William Laurel and Joseph Renshaw seized
the struggling woman and run with her to a
ran betide the house where the flames were
xtisgnished. Late last night Mrs. Pretty
man was suffering intensely, and it is feared
;!i« cannot recover.
The bouse and contents were badly dam
aged by fire and watre.

window and scooped in a lot of the German
cakes, but when they went to divide them
up a dispute arose, which awakened Hilter,
and he saw them portioning out the eata

bid in the coal house, and presently one of
the boys did return after more pretzels, but

caught him and gave him such a good

The Story About the Young Lady Canvass
ers Denied.
A reporter of the Register met the gen
tleman who was mentioned in the article in
yesterday's issue in connection with the
young lady canvassers and he stated that
the main points in the article were untrue
and without foundation. He thought the
joints were given to the writer through a
•pint of maliciousness and spite, and says
the young ladies who are in his employ are
rt spectable girls who make their living by
canvassing for the sale of books. He also
states ikat the reason he made arrangements
;o leave the house on Sixteenth street
*as because the rooms did not suit him,and
h« made no contract to keep them until
July, but merely said that he would prob
ably remain until that time. He admit«
hat the youug ladies traveled with him and
his wife, bat everything is transacted in a
business like and straightforward manner,
and that persons may feel perfectly safe in
dealing with anv of the young ladies who
may call upon them. This explanation is
cheerfully given in justice to the gentleman
and the young ladies employed by him, as
the Register has no desire to do the least
harm to their business.

Wrst layette street, Baltimore, had suffered
•\iih neuralgia eo that he could hardly sleep
Uut he writes, "One night 1 was suffering
\oymucb, and the thought struck me thai
J'xown's Iron Bitters would do me some
?ccd, and perhaps cure me. It was a happ"
: bought, and to my great joy it has entire!1
cured me, after using two bottles. Arte1*
three months I have had no return of th<f
rMrptoms. I cheerfully recommend it a?
fho best tonic I have ever used." Neu?
r Igia sufferers, take that hint!

The Mail Hi«» to Clew D#w» To
Unless th« Scale of the Manufacturers' As
sociation be Agreed to—The
Points at Issue.
To-day all the sail manufacturera in
Pittsburg, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana and
Illinois «ill submit to their men a new
scale of wages materially lower than that
under which the mills hare heretofore been
running, and unless the same be accepted
by the United Nailers—which contingency
is very improbable—the mills will close
down. The most important change in this
scale is the reduction ot three cents per keg
: in the price for cutting. The old price was
21 cents per keg for 10 pennies on a basis
of a |2.50 card rate, with an advance of 1
cent per keg for cutting for eaoh 25 cents
advance in the selling price.
fixes the price for cutticg 10-pennies at 18
; cents when the card rate is $2.50, and pro
vides that the cutting price decrease 1 cent
for every 25 cents fall in the selliog price, as
well as the advance contained in the old
scale. Under this arrangement the nailers'
portion with nails at $2.25 would be 17
cents, and at $2.00, 16, cents, with no dis
j tinction between steel and iron. As a mat
ter ot course, all other sizes run in the
same proportions as 10-pennies, and the
reduction extends to all branches of the in
i dustry.
! A manufacture in speaking of the exist
, ing trouble yesterday said:
"The Nail Association has had no idea
at any time of equalizing the difference of
wages between the East and West. We
! recognize that we must pay higher wages
I here in Wheeling than obtain in New
I England. But we do desire to reduce the
! present difference so as to enable us to
keep eastern men outjof our territory."
"What prices are paid in the East?"
"In New England, about 12} cents per
keg for 10-pennies, and in eastern and cen
tral Pennsylvania 13 and 14 cents. We
cannot market goods at a profit under
as has existed in the past."
"Will not the Eastern manufacturer meet
your cut by a corresponding cut in the
wages of his men, and thus bring about the
same old ratio in his favor?"
"Now that is a favorite argument of the
nailer, but there is nothing in it. Induc
tions can be forced by a manufacturer when
his workmen are unorganized, or there is a
{jreat surplus of labor, down to a certain
irait. Tnat limit oace reached, the em
ployer can not go further, because no skill
ed workman will work for a sum upon
which he and his family can not live in
comfort. They will say to the mauufac
unr, 'I can not live on that compensation;
ycu are forcing me into other branches of
industry.' Now that limit
in New England. Twelve and a half cents
a keg for 10-pennies is as low as you can get
na'lerstoworkforin America,aud as a result
of ibis our proposed reduction will simply
tend to close up the gap, while it insures
our men a steady run at what, with the
present low prices of provisions, clothing,
and everything else, are as good wages as
those obtaining in war times.
"Is the trading field of the Eastern men
limited to New England?"
"Oh, no, they ship all along the Atlantic
seaboard; from Norfolk and Richmond to
Mobile and New Orleans. When this terri
tory is full, they
loading nails at Buffalo for Chicago, which,
as you know, is one of our main distribu
ting pointe. As soon as they put their cheap
nails in the Garden f'iry they made a price
which we are compelled to meet or lose our
"Will the manufacturers enter into nego
tiations with the Nailers' Association in
case the latter shows a disposition to
treat ?"
"Well, that depends. I'll talk about that
again. But whether our scale is rejected or
negotiations are entered into, the mills will
stop pending a settlement."
Nailers are very reticent as to what will
be done, and no expressions of opinion
could be gained from them. It is inferred,
however, that the terms of the manufactur
ers will be rejected and that a shut-down will
be the result
' hat are the prospects out at the
Crescent?" asked a reporter of a Whitaker
mill man last night.
"Oh, I guess we are all right, but whether
the scale is signed or not our mill will shut
down for a week or ten days for repairs.
Mr. Whitaker has always done the square
thing with us, and while, of course, we have
no absolute means of telling what will re
sult, the boys are all feeling pretty good.
The mill has just put in a new pair of cold
rolls for polishing sheet iron, and there is
a corresponding improvement in our out
Imported Thueringer beer, on draught
to day at Henry Blumenberg's saloon.

They accuse us of all sorts of things, and call us all kinds ol
names. But that does'nt excuse them for charging BIO
PRICES for their goods.
All thisthevdo because we will not join a combination to
keep the prfcjs up. Within the paôt two weeks we hav<
pretty clcarlj proven that no matter how LOW A PRICE an]
clothier or finisher may name for a certain make or style
goods we ab ays name a LOWER PRICE for the identical"
article. If y e would add Four or Five Dollars to the prices
