Senator Call renew»«! his motion to prinl
iu the h'noril the memorial of the Consti

read the memorial, thus insuring iU in«er

Mr. Call said that the Vermont Seuatoi
knew what the memorial contained, ant]
that it was unjust to refuse to he:ir thepe

Mr. Call sai»l that the Senator from Ver

behind human rights when the Senator,
with extjnisite cruelty, sought to puuisb

Lawlessness rtigns supreme in the region

bauds have recently been thrown out of
employment.
Ne .< h has reached here of a daring at
i teuipt at robbery near Ten Mile station,
I About J o'clock Sunday morning. Henry
I Iiichtog, n storekeeper on Turkey Creek,
. near lb" South Carolina Kill way station,
>\ is at oused froiii sleep by n bank of negroes
i who attempted under cover ol night to
break into his store and dwelling. Mr.
Kichtog made a desperate defense of his

t charging his guu and pistols, in driving oil
I the men and probably saving his life.
I The store ot Mr. Ii ich tog is situated jnst
• about the center of the phosphate works,
ami the impression seems to be that the
negroes who were engaged in this business
were di. charged from the mines and had
become desperate from the closing up of
. the phosphate business in that section. The
country about Ten Mile station is said to
tie full of lawless bands of needy negroes,
much concerned about their lives and

the Pope's Life.
Last evening St. Joseph's Cathedral was

subject of which was "Leo XIII." This
lecture was in honor of the approaching
Golden Jubilee of His Holiness the Pope,
which occurs on Friday. Bishop Keane
showed himself thoroughly aisjuainted
with the lif« and good works of the present
head of the Church, and his lecture was
replete with eulogy, eloquent in delivery,
and withal u lecture notable for its com
prehensiveness, aud was listened to atten
tively bv the vast assemblage of people.
The admission was tiee and a collection
was taken up for the benefit of the poor, a
neat sum being realized.

Bisluip Keane said:
A study of the career of l'ope Leo XIII.
would be incomplete without some knowl
edge ot tue events preceding his election to
the Pontifical Chair. It is necessary to
look luck to the life ot his saiuted prede
cessor aud examine the forces that were at
work during his loin; and glorious pontifi
cate. When l'ius IX. ascended the Papal
throne, two great dangers threatened the
v. LIuI l u, UiiU£i;i ^ H'iW ncic uiv irouuvi iu\r
age, oud which required the utmost wisdom
to meet and counteract.
In the litst place our age was to lie char
acterized by au astonishing development ol
bnitiiiii energy. Man was to become mon
arch of all the material universe. No
wonder then that he should be tempted to
take pride in his own abilities. No won
der that he should lie tempted to look upon
the whole field of supernatural religion as
a dream. Agaiust that danger 1'iusIX.
was to raise up a banier, and that harrier,
marvelous as it may set mi, was the aver
tion ol tlie iinitiaculaf* concept-oil cT the
Virgin Mary. That «ieelaration vv:n the
eternal assertion of the divinity ol C'lnist.
It stan.Is forth as a bright beacon li»;ht to
warn all nu n from the daugeroiH shoals ol
naturalism and infidelity.

authority a.s oppression, the enforcement
of law a crime. There were the fanatics,
who recognize no standard of human law
except t he majority of votes, ami no statu!
and of ris<bt except the preponderance of
meu's opinions. Agaiust that danger l'ius
IX. had to raise a barrier, aud that harrier
was the assertion ol l'apal infallibility, the
assertion that there was one power, one
authority on earth, that man was incapa

on new forms, anil the con 1 iau*t r» tlrot
theni ail. The Church mast feel and
adapt hcrselfto the world's phases. For it
is her duty "to l»e all thing* to all men."
The «ft? of l.eo XIII records a revolntiou
in the political world. To smu it up in
short, to-day is the day of democracy, the
day of the fourth estate. The star of abso
lut»* govermeuts, 01 so-called paternal gov
ernments has set forever. The
I. A VI S OK A NATION'
can never again lie made, by one man o
by a few men, unless a* the delegates of
the people, i'o the^e changes the Church
was called i;pou to cou form. To suiu it
up in one word, as Cardinal Mannin« said:
"Hitherto the Chu ich has had todealnitli
dynasties, now she must deal with
peoples."
The Church, therefore, lias to guarantee
the libirties aud rigbus of religion, not by
dealing with ti« kle governments but with
the people, who in the maiu recognize lier
as their true frieud aud her right* as their
vnu.
Now it c«>mes very natural to us to see
things thus. Hut run we appreciate how
haril it must have l>een for Leo X III. to take
this view when he was called to !>e the
vicar of Christ on earth? He had l>e«ru
nurture«! lu a school opposed directly to
such ideas, But no school could bind aD<'
cramp tb-»t noble nijml. lie had drunk iu
the spirit of his pure ami saintly predeces

that was good and beautiful in the past,
only fitted him the bttter to gnide the
Church in the changes and vicissitudes of
the future.
On the one side were the a-liiereuts of

all the vehemence of partisans. The heat
of the controversy demanded that hespeak;
and he did «peak, and the world stood
still as he spoke. The church was wedded
to no dynasty. She was chained to no
form of government. She bad reason to
fear none. Out rang the words loml and
dear from the lipsot the sovereigu pontiff,
and they will staud forever as the chun h's

PiTTSHtmo, December 20.—John Henry,
! traveling pasneDger agent of the Pittsburg
' and Lake Krie Kail road, and a number ot
other officials and clerks in the passenger
department and ticket office, yesterday
received carefully worded notifications
signed by President John Newell aud Gen
eral Superintendent Holhrook, signifying
that their presence would not be required
at their respective desks for a few days, as
the books ol the department were lieing
audited to get ready lor the system of
haudling tickets altout to be adopted by
the management. This is the beginning
ot a series of developments in the pasaen
ger department of the I'ittxbnrg aud Lake
Erie Kailroad, which promise t>» assume
the proportions of the recent startling dis
closures in the freight department ol the
Pauhandle.
For months the high officials of the road
have suspected that something very loose
or something posit ively crooked has existed
ill the ticket Riles and rc<*iptN «.t the road
and within a few weeks they have olituiued
proof that th«y were luring systematically
roblted, luit wheie, by wliutu. or t«i what
exlent « an only lie told after a careful in
vestigation of the books and accounts ot
the whole department. It is thought that
counterfeit tickets are in existence, and
from the system of ticket account* kept by
the company it would hardly be jM»-*ible,
without collusion, for the fraud to In- jier
I«! rated.
In ;«n iuteiview the General Hnpcrinten
dent said: "No persou is accu**dof «le

The development!« in the inve«tigatinna
concerning the "Lake Krie toad troubles,
are increasing in interest. All the ollicial*
in the Passenger Agent'« department, in
cluding the chief, have Ikhii temj>orarily
relieved, anil their decks are occupied hy

This afternoon General 1'u.ssenger Agent
A. 1>. Suntli was included among those
temporally relieved from duty. The sus
pension of Mr. Smith caused considerable
surprise among both the employe« and the
officials of the roud, but it is not looktd
u|)ou ua serious matter, and it is slate.I
that the only reHnor be was suspended was
so that the auditoiN could have full charge,
of everything in Ins office. It is etat«d
that other «inploye« will lie su-pcud
ed within the next twcniy-fonr
hours, and that the man who
is implicated mine than auyothir isstillat
work. The number ol suspensions up to
two o'clock this afternoon were forty,
which includes all the employe« in the
passenger, auditing and ticket depart
ment«. What tirst excited the suspicions
of the official« were some queer transac
tions with several theatrical companies. It
is alleged that late« were made with the
companies, and that the man making the
conti act receives a rebate.

A good sized audience, that ought, how

tittisb« d and the development m the plot

though continually coming to the surface,
is known only to three or tour of the char

IRON ANDSTKKU
A Krport That There U a Vary Unsatisfac
tory Condition at lMttsbrug.
I-ast evening's Pittsburg Chronicle-Telr
graph took a somewhat jaundiced view of
tbe iron and steel trade, and ascribed a fair
share of tbe cause of trouble to Wheeling.
11 said :
"There is a slight struggle between
Pittsburg iron and steel manufacturers and
foreign competitors at the present time.
Outsiders are trying to undersell Pittsburg,
with the intention of receiving some of her
trade, but than far h about success. There
is a slight downward tendency in pig iron.
The grades ranging in width from H to 11 i
inches are selling at less than $40 a ton,
lower than common har iion, which nine
uiontbs ago only sold for 'J cents, and even
a little more per pound. "Sheared" pipe
iron, fron 'J to t> feet wide, which is rolled
on large plate rolls iu sheet < ol ">00 to
1,600 pounds apiece, is getting below 3
cents. It takes twice a* many tuen to
haudle aud shear the heavy plates as it
does on the lighter grades. Urtiers for
ah «mil iron are therefore being re
fused by Oliver Hros. it Phillips, the Moor
head Bros. & Ho., autl other firms. At tbe
lust uamed mill it is not likely that the
large tmin of plate rolls will run eveu ou
half time this wiut»r. Spang, C lia liant Ä
Co. find it unprofitable to roll and make
such grade* of pipes, aud they have almost
shut down that department. All the cut
ting is being done at Wheeling and Oil City,
pipe works having lieen established at each
ot these plait-«, with the intention of cut
ting oil' Pittsburg with '200 tons a day."
