which would be the making of the display

that something based upon the outlines
given be formally adopted.

Grand Master Workman Conklin of the

dajs, looking into the matter of dispute,
hands in the following communication,
which will explain itself:
7b the Edüur of the RejuUer:
Sir:—Sine*« the sitrniug of the K. of L.
scale at the Riverside Steel Works, quite
a discussion has arisen. Iu the Labor Tri
bune of Febrnary 4th, an article appears
stating that it is the policy of the K. of L
to fatten ou the «uspcnded and expelled
members of regular trade unions. We only
speak of what we know in connection
with onr own trades—irou and steel work
ers. This article is supposed to reler to
tue National District Assembly, No. 217,
Irou and Steel Workers. In the first place
we I.rand this as a "lie." asourNitioual As
sembly traces its origin back to L A.,
5543, .ii Harriaburg. Pa., and said Loc-tl
Assembly back to Washington Lodge ot A
A. oi I à S W., of Dauville, Pa, which
Lodge the Amalgamated Association de
serted v. tien on a legalized strike a tew
years *s<o The article of the Tribune also
calls this District Assembly of Iron an t
Ste»l Workers a ' bogus Iron District,"
and goes on to say, "It cannot be regatded
;.sa factor in the iron and steel world here
after. And if cuttiug wages down tielow
the Amalgamated Association scites is any
benefit, the Iron District can be relied
upon to secure it, as at Mingo Junction,"
etc Now for a fair decision on this. We
leave it. to the tair minded work
men to decide. In the first
plac», our scale is above the one now in
opérât ou at Mingo Junction, and signed
by the A. A. of I. «i S. W., and in various
positions ou the scale it is above Bellâtre.
It is further stated the members of the
Amalgamated Association were discharged
(another falsehood) All »workmen em
ployed by said compiny were notified to
repott for duty on Monday moruing at
5:35 o'clock, and at the same time in the
eveuing, and the places of all those who
did not report would be declared vacant
and other men hired to fill them. All
those belonging to the Amalgamated Asso
ciation, with one or two exceptions, did
not rep irt, but every one belonging to the
K. of L. reported for duty, notwithstand
ing the stitf merits of some of the high of
ficials of the Amalgamated Association
that over thirty of the K. of L tonnage
men would not report tor duty when the
time came.
We »hall follow this with a scale of
W3s{es paid at Riverside, the K. of L.

other facts where there are diff^rmees lie

Ib the jcduor qf Ute Remitter:
SlK:—Your paper has treated the Prehi
tionists lair, and I desire space to ask Kev.
M. F. Dryden a query. I have Doted the
controversy between himself and Kev. Mr.
Ulfert, and have observed with pleasure
that Rev. Dryden is very enthusiastic in
his advocacy of prohibition. Now, I want
to ask Mr. Dryden fairly and squarely what
ticket or what political party he supports.
I do this because Mr. Dryden lives in
Wheeling, the controversy is conducted in
Wheeliug, and liquor saloons exist in
Wheeling, and bave existed ever Bioce the
writer can remember. Now, the saloons
exist in Wheeling by virtue of the wishes
of the officers elected by the people of
Wheeling. These officer« have bt*n elect
ed by the Democratic and Republican
parties. If the Democrats were to elect
every officer in the city of Wheeling to
morrow, the saloons would continue;
if the Republicans were to elect every of
ficer in Wheeling to-morrow the saloons
would keep right on at the old stand just
the same. There might be a little higher
license fee to be paid with either party, or
a little this or a little that, but the saloons
would be there just the same. Every
thinking man mnst admit that. Now, I
want to know, does Mr. Dryden vote for
either of these parties which continue the
saloon? If he dot*, is he not inconsistent,
and is not bis preaching, praying and
talkiuit f«»r temperance and prohibition of
little avail Mr. ÜIfert acts perfectly con
sistent with bis belief. He believes in the
saloon, and he votes for the party or par
ties which keep it in existence. Mr. Drydeu
opposes it. Do?s be oppose with one breath,
and with the next vote with a party which
keeps the business going? That is the
question. Will Mr. Drydui be kind
enough to aunwer. No man should tie
a.-ihaiue.l of his vote. This country is full
of professed Prohibitionists, who work,
nud preach, and talk, and pray, nud write
for Prohibition daring the entire :»6l days
of the year, but on the 305th day walk up
to the polls and vote up their old party
ticket—wbiskv, beer, Sunday selling and
I aui so well pleased with Mr. Dryden's
position iu favor of Prohibition laws, that
I hope he is not one of the heaven praying,
but whiskey voting kind.

"Contractor" S«ta the K^rord Straight ns
to the Trouble.
MocNDSVILLK, W. Va , Feb. 7, '88
T> tte Editor of the Ra/Uftr :
8lK:—Your Moundsville correspondent
seems to be considerably exercised over the
late controversy between tbe Superinten
dent of the Penitentiary and contractors,
and, as be seeuis to either see only one side
of the matter or to persistently misrepre
sent the facts, it may be of interest to some
of vonr readers to be told the truth
The quarrel last spring over the confir
mation of Superintendent Peck bad the
effect of demoralizing both guards and
convicts to such an extent that the disci
pline at the institution becaiuti unreason
ably bad. The abolishing of aevere pun
ishment for offences against the rule« made
it very difficult for the new officers to over
come this state of affairs, and tbe convict*
have naturally become inefficient servants.
The policy of the present Superinten
dent in frequently changing the shop
guards, as many as ceven or eight
guards haviog served iu some of tbe
shops during the past nine months, m cal
culated to increase this disorder. The
rales of the institution require the guards
to familiarize themselves with the work in
their reactive shops, that they may be
able to judge as io what constitutes a fair,
reasonable and effective day's work, and
that they may kuow whether a convict
works "faithfully and diligently," or oth
erwise. Such intelligent supeivision on
the part of the State officer becomes im
possible under the system of frequent
change* now iu vogue, and the contractors
suffer in consequence.
The prê tent coutroversey is based upon
a protest on the part of the contractors
against the lack of discipline and a de
mand on their part for its enforcement.
No charge has ever been made agiinst
Major .Robertson on the ground of his be
ing a Kuight o! Labor, and no con
tractor asks anything except a fulfil
ment ou the part of the State of
its contract obligations with tlieiu accord
ing to their true meaning and intent The
charge "that the contractors want the flesh
and blood of the unfortunate beings'' who
are so much abused as to be convicted of
crime-» against the commonweilth, is base and
malicious and the outgrowth of a maudlin
sentiment that would put a premium upon
crime and make a conviction and seuteucft
to the penitentiary honorable.
At the Board meeting referred to, do
action was taken for the relief of tbe con
tractors, as far a* we are advised, the
Superintendent forestalling such by tbe
declaration "that if the Board passes an
order to mc in five minutes <o restore the
old guards to the shops, I will disregard
it," the only course left for the contractors
being to go to work and look to the State
to reimburse them for tbe damages they
may suffer.
Please use as much or as little of this tor
publication as yon please, but give us the
benefit of a square deal before the public
ami let us have done with this childish
"babbliug" about something that your
correspondent knows very little abont
Min» KohIiia Yoke* and Her Coutedy Com
pany »t th« OP»*r» Huu»t>.
Tbe audience a* llie Opera House last
evening was a cultured one, and lairly
filled the house. Tbe atttaction vas
worthy of an audience larger than coold
possibly squeeze into tbe Opera HouRe by
tho utmost effort, and if each isn't tbe
condition of things to-night it will l e
something very strange. La*i evtuing's
entertainment wad of a character seldom
stea in Wheeling, and thos»e prewnt
had their most sauguiue anticipa
tions more than realized. Tbey saw com
edy that was art, such aa cannot tail to
please the cultivated taste when comedy
tbat is composed niaiuly of noise and
bustle begins to grow very stale.
The first piece was a farce in one act,
"Which is Which?" in which a young
artut, "Robert Capper," (Mr. Morton
Seiden) falls deeply in love with the wrong
youug lady to help him out of his finan
cial difficulties, but in the end discovers
she is the right one. Besides Mr. Seiden,
Mr. Felix Morris and Misses Ethel Johnson
and Edith Clennell took tbe principal roles,
and all in a splendid manner. "My Mill
iner's Bill," a pretty litie comedietta, for
two characters, Mr. and Mrs. Merridew.and
in it Miss Yokes and Mr. Courtenay Thorpe
made their &rst appearance. One could not
imagine that any two people could euter
tain an audience for three quarters ot an
hour in such a charming manner
but these two did it to perfec
tion, last eveniug. It is useless
to attempt to describe Miss R*<ina Yokes
as she appears on the stage. She is bright
and full of life, and she had vast opportu
nity to display her remarkable versatility,
Her singing and dancing naturally sent
the audience into ecstacies of applause.
Mr. Thorpe is a comedian who can be
equalled by few, and he fairly shared the
honors with Miss Yokes.
The performance concluded with "A
Pantomime Rehearsal," in which the en
tire company appeared Besides those
mentioned in the above pieces, Miss Isa
bella Irving and Mr. Ferdinand Gottschalk
appeared, and all sustained their roles in
a perfect manner. Tbe piece was full of
fun of the moet refined and enjoyable
character. ''In Honor Bound" and "The
Circus Rider" will be given thU eveniug,
in addition to the "Pantomime Rehearsal," I
md a crowded bouse should greet the
'A* I« a boy" la bound to have tbe
patented "Ball Dog" gl yen away with
»very Boy'» and Child*» Suit, at X.

'J lie Suppoacil Riirgtitr.
From papers found upon tbe man ar_
rested on the Island Sunday night, after
the unsuccessful attempt on bis part to
find tbe satchel containing the burglar
tools, it seems bis real name is James
Clark. There is as yet do trace of the
companion of the fellow, who made bis
ese^te after being interviewed by oue of
the officers at a time when there was no
evidence to warrant his arrest, and he is
supsraed t« have fled in tbe direction of
Pittsburgh, from which port the party
evidently set out. The photograph taken
of Brown, alias Clark, (<bows bim with an
officer on each side, holding his wrists with
a pair of "nippers.''
An Enjoyable Occasion.

tbe party discussed a very fine supper at
considerable length, and then gathered in
the parler, where Mr. F. P. McNeil aston
ished Mr Sheppard by presenting bim
with a handsome gold headed cane, from
the establishment of W. J. I.ukens. Mr.
McNeil was very happy in his remarks,
which were replied to by Mr. Sheppard as
well aa his feelings would permit. Tbe
evening was altogether a most pleasant one,
and will be long remembered.

A Disposiuoa to Make a Systematic Collection of the
Assortment of Tools and Deadly Weapons
Captured by the Officers.
There is every probahility that in the
near future the police headquarters rooma,"
at the City Hall, will be adorned uot only
with a well-kept and prospérons Kogues'
Gallery, bnt as well with a nie« caee in
which will be neatly arranged the large
and varied assortment of burglars' tools,
and other contraband articles which have
from time to time beeu t-jullscated by the
officers. Such a collection shonld h»\e
been started years ago. Ever since the
present police system has been in vogn*> the
officers have been gathering in all sorts of
stuff of a more or less interesting nature,
but no particular care has been taken of it,
and the result has been that a very large
proportion of the whole has been lost,
mislaid, or carried off for one rea
son or another. There ought to be about a
barrel of revolvers, and several bushels of
other odds and ends ou "tile," as it
were, but there isn't, and this is not the
fault of the police department, either.
Council never thought the matter worth
attending to, aud with no one iu particular
to be responsible for the relics, they ha\e,
iu good par», disappeared. Captain Smith,
however, lws stowed away a largü lot of
tuff talliug into his hands duiiug his ad
ministration and there is enough to make
h very respectable showing
At Monday evening'* session of the
Police and Fire Board the matter wjj»
mentioned, and it is prolwble the Commit,
sioners will secure a proper case and have
the stuff arranged.
Last evening a reporter looked over the
i i .-„„„j „ .<„„1
to interest. Then- are three lot a of bur
glars' tools, embracing jimmies, biaces,
drills, nippers, scren-drivers, fn*c, powder,
wedges, chisels, etc., several chisel*, used
by burglars at divers times in prying ofl
shutters, doors and windows, i minded in
the lot briug the two found in the alley the
night Ollieer Glenn was shot. Then there
is a collection of weapons ol varions sorts,
among them being a sand bag, which looks
like one of the sort we mid about as being
wielded by London aud Paris murderers
and highwaymen, several "billies" of va
rious sorts, two daggers, one a double
edged, \\ u ked looking weapon, in a leather
case, aud the other a sliiletto made trom a
file, aud taken from au Italian some time
ago. There are knucklers without end,
from the crude affairs, manufactured by
some ambitious tough from a lead plat«*,
hole.) being t»ored (or the iusertiou of the
fingers, on up through the several grades
totbn finely finished article sold by the
dealer in sporting goods. The collectiou
of revolvers is large and comprehensive,
guns of all boi t.s being represented.
A very nice collection could be made
with the stock 011 hand, aud once started
the museum would be ailded to constantly
until it wonld be well worth seeing. But
the main advantage would be, that then
would lie 110 longer the remotest possibil
ity that the article* used by the cracks
mau or the thug would ever find their way
into improper hands. Once gobbled up
by the police, they would go into the
"collection" and would thereafter do no
harm. Hang up the jimmy aud the drill.
