The big event In Merchants’ Day circles yesterday was the closing of a eontrac. for the best theatrical company to be had in Xew York City, and they will be here for two performances, at Wheeling Park Casino, Tuesday and Wednesday even ings. next. The company Is *1492.” with a r.ew cast of fifty-three people, new scen ery, new music, their own orchestra, etc. The first evening’s performance will be open to the general public, at a price of admission which will be definitely an nounced to-morrow morning, but whidi will probably be one dollar, which will include the ride to and from the Park on the motor and reserved seats without ex tra charge. Wednesday evening the en tertainment will be exclusively for the subscribers to the Merchants' Day fund and their guests. The committee had the option of the troupe for one or two days, and closed the contract for two days, that the general public might have an opportunity to see something really hand some at a popular price for a strictly firs. class entertainment. The cast of ”1492 ’ for the season of 1S9T-9S i* wholly new, and Includes the best ladies and gentle men in the profession. In fact, the com mittee is assured that every' character is taken by a star performer. The company has a car of new scenery, and the entire outfit was secured by Mr. McMechen, yes I terday, at very large expense. Mr. McMechen called up the chairman of the Entertainment Committee yester day afternoon at two o’clock. This end of the conversation was carried on with New York from the rooms of the telephone company, in the City Bank building, and the Executive Committee were on hand in an adjoining room to hear the proposi tion and terms and come to an immediate decision. Mr. McMechen. recited his ne gotiations in detail, and after careful consideration and deliberation the con tract with "1492” was ordered closed, and it was done with a snap. At half-past three Mr. McMechen telegraphed that the papers had been signed, and his action was approved by wire. He will be home to-night. Secretary Hirsh, of Wheeling Park, was at once communicated with, and a state ment of the new situation laid before him. with the Information that the merchants wanted the Casino for a performance Tuesday as well as Wednesday. The re quest was immediately granted, with the characteristic liberality of the Park As sociation. and tickets for Tuesday’s per formance will be on sale Monday morn ing, at places to be hereafter announced. According to present arrangements there will bo po tickets for sale Wednesday. Other features of the day are about ar ranged for. The last contracts were clos ed yesterday for refreshments, the dinner at the Park, and other matters, and the railroad situation, in the matter of fares for visitors to the city, is shaping itself up nicely. The probability is that the steamboat excursion will necessarily be abandoned, and the time devoted to this will he filled up with sight-seeing about the city, and by going to Wheeling Park at 6 and 5:30 p. m. Wednesday, instead of 6 and 6:30. as was first proposed. This will give the visitors more time to look about the Park, and also give the caterer more of a chance with dinner. As stated al>ove, the Executive Commit tee met yesterday afternoon, ami wtTl probably meet again this mornng. To day will about wind up the details of the affair, which have been quite a serious charge upon the gentlemen doing commit tee work. -0 FUNERAL OK .1. I>. BROWN.

HELD FOR ROBBERY. Three McMechen Young Men Arrested for Robbing a WSi-Known Cigar Man of Moundsville—Cases Will Be Heard Monday at Benwood. Yesterday Constable Loy, of Benwood. arrested three McMechen young men ] named Platt. Williams and Lewis, on the charge of robbery of David Cunningham, a crippled cigar manui.'^iurer of Mounds ville. The thiVe young men were taken before ’Squire Lacey, of Benwood. and were required to give bail fbr th<ir ap pearance at a hearing Monday. The crime with which these young men are charged is alleged to have been committed Thursday evening at his cigar shop in Moundsville. but the story Is doubted by many people in that town. At the time mentioned. Cunningham, his partner, named Williams, and five young men, of whom two were from Benwood, were sitting in the cigar shop when an altercation arose and Cunningham raised his crutch to hit one of the young men. Williams got hold of the crutch, and this led to a quarrel between Cunningham and Wiliams, and a dissolution of part nership the next day. Yesterday Cun ningham claimed that at the time Wil liams was holding his crutch that the three young men went through his pock ets and stole $40 from him. The story Is doubted, as Williams has a reputation of honesty and Is well respected in Moundsville. fn the case of Chas. Gately, charged by Dave Jacobs with assault and fighting, the defendant wa$ given a hearing before Mayor Sheppard yesterday, but was hon orably discharged, th re being no evidence to justify the charge. The Ohio River railroad a*Tent at Ben wood had a boy named Willie Roy arrest ed yesterday for trespass. The hoy re fused to go off the premises and called the agent some bad names. Mayor Shep pard fined the hoy J.l and costs. -O ABOUT I'EOPli. Brief Mention About tbe ('omln; anil (•nine: of IndivliltiHls. Miss Kate Muhleman, who has been visiting at H .J.

SETTLED SATISFACTORILY. Mr. A. T. Hallock. the Moundsvllle. j glove manufacturer was in the city yester- > day and met a committee of the Board of | Directors of the West Virginia Peniten- | tiary and came to a satisfactory under standing with them concerning his con- • tract. A clause in Ha Hock's contract was construed by him as allowing him to can- | cel his contract on September 15. The 1 Board contested this claim and Hallock refused to pay. The matter was com promised by his agreeing to pay for the men and continue his contract until No vember 1st after which date he to have the privilege of cancelling his contract. This contract was offered by Hallock re cently at the Board meeting and was re fused. The rommittee. after advising with Attorney Wm. P. Hubbard, decided to accept. -O BEN WOOD FIRM DISSOLVES.

Three Plate Mills at the Riverside Follow the Action of the Steel > Works —This Large Plant May Be Entirely Idle in a Few Days. Rodeter’s Glass Works at Beli aire Shut Down — Local Miners Confident. There is no material change in the local miners’ situation, excepting that as each day passes the coal famine be 1 comes more strongly felt. The scarci-1 ty of fuel has begun to seriously in terfere with the local industries and is compelling some of them to shut down. The fact of the Riverside Steel Works closing down for this reason has already been mentioned in thisj paper. Yesterday morning three of the plate mills also shut down. This leaves only one plate mill, the blast furnace and the tube department working. The probability is that before many days the entire Riverside plant, ex cept that portion which can be oper ated by gas. will be forced to quit. The Riverside is the largest manufac tory between Pittsburg and Cincin nati and has been running steadily for four months and more. The Wheeling Steel Works, which has had a two-weeks’ run, will also prob ably have to stop to-night. Yesterday Rodefer's glass factory at Bellaire, employing 200 men, were also com pelled to shut down, the first time for a year, because of the coal famine. The lack of coal is being much felt in Bellaire and the inevitable closing > of its industries is commencing. The Bellaire gas works succeeded in get ting four car loads of fuel yesterday from some unknown source, and is still running. The stove foundry there is making gas connections and hopes to be able to continue, but the enam eling works, which has been running ever since It was first started, will probably have to stop before rnajiy days. All the railroads are busy confisca ting coal in their possession and if it was not for this reason some of the local factories, whose coal shipments are being appropriated in this man ner, would be able to continue. This fact is taken by the miners to be suf ficient evidence that the operators have not all the coal they need to supply orders and that, the end of the strike has not yet appeared. The bringing out of the miners at Bowers ton, Ohio, this week has closed every coaling station on the Pan Handle between Pittsburg and Newark, and notices to the effect that no coal can be obtained at Bowcrston have been posted all along the road between these points for the benefit of train crews. So general is scarcity of coal noticed that the commonest slack, which never would have been used heretofore, is being utilized. At Scott’s mines, on ;tie main line of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, there have been acres of coal slack piled up for years, and at present there are about 100 men hired at ?2 ppr day to load this coal. So far as the Wheeling district is concerned the situation could not be better for the strikers. The mines are all idle and the miners, who have i heretofore kept out of all unions have been organized. The men at the River side hank were organized by Secretary Anderson yesterday. The miners of this vicinity are confident in the gen eral outcome of the strike and do not share any of the apprehension that i3 felt In other quarters. They charac terize the latest declarations of th* operators as a grand bluff play and say that their threats to start the mines with non-union men is only to induce the strikers to compromise. Thp picnic given by the bricklayers yesterday for the benefit of the miners was fairly well attended. WELL! WELL! WELL! WHAT NEXT! To the Editor of the Register. ! Sir—Our grand, noble, and generous hearted coal operators, who have sac rificed so much in the interest of the poor coal miners, and are using every means possible to advance the inter | est of their employes, to enable them to earn a respectable living, are em ploying means and methods that they should not he compelled to use in order to convince the miners and public that it is not necessary to restore to ! their employes a part of that which j was taken from them some time since : that the condition of trade, times and the coal market will not admit oT it. all of which the miners and general public ought to know, and that is im possible to grant them their exorbitant , demands. Well, we will see if the miners and all organized labor can be hodooed and have the wool pulled , over their eyes in that kind of style any longer or not. Everything points to the success of the miners’ cause at present, the paid reports of the opera- ! tors to the contrary notwithstanding, j This threatening of employing Pinker- ; ton thugs. Gatling guns, etc., has it* j significance, which is fully understood by the coal miners. They have been through the mill before. 1 he opera- j tors’ tactics is well known and will not work this time. Without question, | victory is in sight. That is. if the | miners keep their equilibrium and not ' allow sensational reports to mu away ; with their better Judgment. Every thing is in good shape. The general i public is responding nobly to the ap peals of the miners’ committee for support. No one in this district need fear for the necessaries of life for an indefinite period. Thins bluff of the . operators is having no effect in the I district officers of the Pan-Handle. In fact, they feel more confident of sue* | cess now than ever from the knowl edge of the fact that the operators j are getting desperate. \7. S. BERESFORD. G. A. R. ENCAMPMENT. B. & O.
