course of a year, on* fortune made there
will be a hundred fortaneo made. Bvery
one knows that the commercial world
thrives in proportion as there is confidence
between man and man; and the extirpation
of all double dealing snd fraud from society
will increase this confidence, and hence,
greater prosperity. The heavy commercial
disasters that have smitten this land were
the work of godless speculators and infa
mous stock gamblers. It a is crime that is
the mightiest foe to business, but when the
right shall burl bark into ruin the plots of
bad men, and purify the commercial code,
and thunder down fraudulent establish

Politicians have been figuring ever siuce
the morning of the 8th of November as to
what meant the revolution in American
politics In some cities and States it may
have bad some meaaii.g peculiar to them
selves. but 1 tell you what it meant all over.
It meant that the people of the United
States are infuriated at the way the taxes
are kept np when they could be lowered.
A hundred million dollars extracted from
the bard earnings of the people to be
stored tip as a temptation to public offi
cials. The only way to keep public tueu
Ntealinc from the Treaaurv £.">0.000.000
is not to leave any surplus to steal. Dur
ing the coming session of Congress the Re
publican party will have another oppor
tunity to take off the blood-suckers from
the b"dv politic, and if tbey fail to do it
the verdict of the people in Mass ichusetts
and New York ts only a snow d<ke com
pared with what will be the avalanche
of popular indignation. If neither
of the parties of the day do
the work of emancipation from
taxes ihw a new party will do it. If you
R cpntdicars and you Democrats do not do
your duty in this regard, we will after
»»hiie lorm a party ot our own. ana pin

taxation, anti-rum, anti-dirt, anti nuis

public spoils careless of public morals, not
so much as the wages of a street sweeper.
In that pood time coming there shall 1* no
exhaustive taxation; no orphans homeless,
for parents will be able to leave their chil
dren a com potency; no prisons, for crime
will have given place to virtue. In the
bappv time coming there will be no voting
of public money that, on its way to some
city improvement, falls into the pocket* of
tht-ae wtio voted it. No courts of Oyer and

In that day of redemption there will be
better factories, grander architecture, finer
equ >a.:ts, larger estates, richer opulence.
Aga n. when our cities are purified the
church»s will be mnltiuliei, purified and
strengthened. Now denominations and
the individuals of different sects are often
jealous of each other. Christians are not
always kindly disused toward each ether;
ai d minister* of the gospel sometime* for
get the bond of brotherhood. In that day
they will be sympathetic and helpful.
There may be differences of opinion an 1
sen ment, but no acerbity, uo hypercriti
cism and no exclusiveness. in that day
all the churches will be filled with wor
shipers. We have not to day in the cities
church room for one fourth of our imputa
tion. and yet there is a lucat deal more
room than the people occupy. The
cMirches Uo not average an attendance of

which I speak there will be enough church
room to bold alfthe people, and the to an
will be occupied. In that time what rotis

Though I have neither a cultured voice

far from being wasted. But when the

tbe pn»i:*e of the great congregation, let us
Lot drive them away with our indifference.
I have preached in churches wheie fabu
lous sums of money were paid to perform
i ers and the harmony was as exquisite as
any harmony that ever went up from any
, acajemy of music; and yet for all the pur
poses of devotion 1 would prefer the hearty
outbreaking song of a backwoods Metho
j dist camp-meeting. When these fancy
starveling son^s get up to the gate of
heaven, how do you suppose they look,
standing beside the gre*t doxologies of the
glorified? Let au operatic performance,
t!«>ating upward, get many hours the start
and it shall be caught and passed by the
Hosanna of the Sabbath school children.
I know a church where there was no sing
ing. except that done by the choir, save one
old Christian man: and they waited upon
hiiu by a committee and asked him if he
wonhi not stop singing for he disturbed th<
.Aram, when the city ia redeemed, the
i low haunts of vice and pol'ution will be ex

mised by the forces of tide, wind and wave
and sunshine to reconstruct the world. Io
a book of much geuius which rushed rap
idly from edition to edition, he says:
. "Fellow-men: I promised to show the
means of creating a paradise within ten
years, where every thing desirable for hu
man life may be had by every man in
superabundance without labor and with
: out pay: where the whole face of nature
shall be changed into the most beautiful
forms, and man may liTe in the
la*! XmralSe+wt Palaeem
in all imaginable refinements of
laxnry, and ia the most
delightful gardens, where he mayaccor.
plish without labor in one year more than
hitherto coald be done in thousand! of
years; may l*eel continents, sink valleys,
create lakes, drain lakes and swamps, and
intei sect the land everywhere with beaati*
fal canals and roads for transporting heavy
loads of many thousand tons and for trav
eling a thousand miles in twenty four
hoars; may cover the ocean with floating
islands, movable io any desired direction,
with an immense powei and celerity in
perfect security and with all the comforts
and luxuries; bearing gardens and palaces
with thousands of families, and provided
with riruJets of sweet water; may explore
the interior of the giohe and travel from
pole to pole in a fortnight; provide hint
•'elf with means y-t unheard of for incr^a*
t»c hi* knowledge of the world, and so his
intelligence; leading a life of continual
happiness, of enjoyment ret unknown, free
himself frum almost nil the
except death, and even pat death far be
yona the common period of haman life and
finally reader it lew atSictiog. From the
houses to be built will be afforded tbe
meet enrapturing views to be fancied;
from the galleries, from the roof and from
ita turrets may be seen gardens as far a%
the eye can see, full of fruits and flowery,
arranged in the moat beautiful order with*
walks, colonnadee, aqueducts, canals. •

fountains, sculptured works, partitions^,
gondolas, places for public amusement to
delight the eye and fancy. All this to be
done by urging tbe water, the wind and
tbe suoshine to their full development."
Mr. Etzler gives plates of the machinery
by which aJl this is to be done. He pro
poses the organisation of a company, and
says small shares of 120 will be sufficient—
in ail from #200,000 to WOO.OOO—to erect
the tirat establishment for a wh^le com
munity of from three to four thouaand in
dividuals. "At the end of five years we
shall have a principal of $200,000,000; and
so paradise will be wholly regained at the
end of the tenth year. There is ni tre
reason in this than niapytrtifcigttUaa pro

I Sh«:i Take So Share*
in the large company that is proposed:
iuy faith is that Christianity will yet make
tne worst street of our cities better than
the best street now is.
Archimedes consumed the enemies of
Syracuse by a great suu-glass. As the ships
canie up the narbor the sun's rays were
concentrated upon them. Sow tbe sails are
wings of tire, tne masts fall and the vessels
sink. So by tbe great sun-glass of the
Grapel, the rays of Heaven will be concen
trated uj>od all the tilth and unchastity and
crime of our great towns and under the
heat they will blaze and expire. When the
day comes that I have shown will come,
suppose you that there will be any more
midnight brawls? any shivering mendi
cants kicked off from the marble steps?
any droves of unwashed, uncombed, unfed
children? any blasphemers in the streets?
any staggering past of inebriates' No! N'o
wine cellars, no lager beer saloons, no dis
tilleries. where they make the XXX, no
bloated cheeks, no blix>d shot eves, no tist
battered foreheads. Tbe grandchildren of
that woman who now walks up the
street with a cu se as the boys stone her
will be great philanthropists, and heal tbe
sick and manage great commercial enter
prises. \\ heu our cities are so raised we
shall have in many of them different styles
of municipal government. The great ques
tion in regard to the execution of the law
in most cities now is, '"What is iiopular.*"
Y< u have but to pass the city halls of some
of our cities, or look in upon the rooms of
some of our city officials, to see to what
sort of men our cities have been abandoned.

who stand on the outside of some of the

how far it is from sume of our citiee to
Sodom. Who are those wretched women
sent up in the city van to the police curt,
apprehended for drunkenness? They
will be locked up in jail, but what
will be done with the groegeries
that made them drunk? Who are these
men in the city prison? Tliat man stole a
pair of shoes; that tay one dollar from the
counter: that girl snatched a purse—all
villainies of less than twenty or thirty dol
lars' damage to the community. But for
that gambler, who last ni^ht took that

the church aiid frantically asked what he
should do—notbiug! Verily, small crimes
ought to be punished; but it were more
just if our authorities would turn out from
ourjail9and penitentiaries the small vil
lains, tbe petty crimnals, tbe infantile
otlt-iiilers, the ten dollar desperadoes, iitid

of iniquity, who drive their roan span

have to fly to escai* being run over, oh,
the damnable schemes that professed Chris
tians will engage in until God puts bis
tipger into the collar of the hypocrite's
role and rips it clear down to the l>ottom!
But all these wrongs shall be righted.
Our streets shall bear the tramp of are
generated multitude. Three hundred ami
sixty bells were rung in Moscow when a
Prince was marmd; but when righteous
ness and L%sce shall "kiss each other" in
all the eartn, 10,000 bells will strike the

, fovember 23.—A ter
rible explosion of dynamite occurred at
Bellview, t wo miles from here, last night,
resulting in the killing of two persons,
and seriously injuring several more. The
particulars have just reached this place.
About a quarter of a mile below the coal
mines of Gumbert & Huey, on the Monon
ja' ela river, is the bome of Hale Forsythe,
a miner employed in the works of the
above mentioned firm. Here Forsythe
has lived for some time with his wife and
three children.
About two weeks ago some miners
employed in Walton's mines came to
visit Forsythe, and were at his house a day
or two. During their stay they proposed
to Forsythe that
They Mhonld U* ritblai;.
They did not care about the old, slow
method of capturing one fish at a time,
with hook and line, but told Forsythe they
knew of a much better plan, which was, to
use dynamite. The miners had some of
the explosive material with them, and they
went to the river and used it quite success
fully, killing about tive hundred pound* of
fish. Home of the people living in the
neighborhood who saw the wholesale
slaughter of fish, protested against it and
»-ven threatened to prosecute the men, but
as tliey were very poor nothing wiw done.
The visiting miners went home and For
sythe determined to do some fishing on his
own account with the new bait. Yesterday
morning he went to the quarry of Mr.
Fleming, on the Voughioglwny t'iver, and
asked if he could spare some dynamite.
Fltming wanted to know what it wa* to be
used for and Forsythe said he wanted to
blast some rocks near his house. Fleming
then agreed to let Forsythe have

weighing in all about a pound. He saw
that Foray the was ignorant of th» nature of
the explosive and also of tb« nwnner in
which to handle it. and so he told him that
the stuff was frozen and was useless in
that condition. He explained to Foray the
that if the sticks ol dynamite were placed
near a fire they would thaw out
atid be ready for use, and also
told him that if proper care was given to
the thawing process there was no aanger of
an explosion. Forsytne seemed to under
stand the directions given to him, but he
did not fully comprehend the power of the
material and the liability of explosion
from heat. About half-past tive o'clock he
went home and told his family about the .
dynamite, but none of them were alarmed,
as they, too. were ignorant of its qualities.
Forsythe took the sticks of dynatui&e from
his pocket aad placed tbem in the oven of
the kitchen stove. He then went off to the
<oal work* where he was a quarter of an
hour later when he heard a loud report,
and in a few minutes he was told that there
bad been an explosion at his house aud all
of his family had been killed.
Unir Frantic at the X*w«.
lie ran to the house and found the report
was true in part, at least. After Forsythe
left the house his wife and children sat
down to supper at a table near the stave
where the dynamite was. While the chil
dren were laughing about some joke,
there was a frightful noise, the stove was
blown into tiny fragments, the entire end
o( fhe bouse, which is a two-story frame
building, was. wrecked, and the mother and
hfr little ones were hurled in different
directions and were cut by flying pieces of
iron and glass, or violently thrown agsinst
the walls. A sorry spectacle it was which
greeted Forsythe and his friends when they
reached the once cheerful little home. Mrs.
Forsythe was cut and gashed in a most
frightful manner. 8he had been sitting
clo*e to the stove and the pieces of iron
struck her in over thirty places, giving her
the appearance of a person who had been
Middled with Hnrkshul.
She cannot possibly recover. Charley
Fprsythe, the youngest of the children and
about five years old, was terribly bruised
and iu', and died cot long after the acci
dent occurred. Robert Forsyth#, seven
years old, was cnt about the head and body.
His injuries are serious, but he will not
die. "Willie, the eldest of the boys, escaped
with slight cuts on his feet, l'oor For
svthe is almost crazy about the affair, and
constantly exclaims that he is to blame
for the disaster. He wanted to commit
suicide, but was prevented. The man in
rtality does not seem to have known what
was liuMe to happen, and of course could
not l>e blamed. Mrs. Forsythe was a
daughter of Mr. Huey, one of the tirtu for
whom Forsythe worked. The coroner has
been i.otitied of the boy's death.
of the accident is to the effect that the eld
est boy, aged eight years, had just arisen
to get a drink, and was not more than tiro
feet from the stove and facing it when the
<xpl<«ion occurred. The mother was
seated with her back to the stove and the
two younger boys by her side. The boy
near the stove received the full force of
the explosion, which was terrific. The
boy st.i.ding near the stove was thrown a
distance of twentv feet, and was found in
a cave in the vara. He was horribly man
gled, and died from the effects of his inju
ries about two hours after the occurrence.
The entire portion of his body was opened
aa though the flesh had been cut awar
with a knife, exposing the entrails. Both
arms were twisted from their sockets, and
rne leg was almost severed at the knee.
Forsythe was in a swoon for several hours
after the accident. W. E. Thompson,

General State ef the Iron Market
Healthy—Ko Cause ff*
The Steel Trade—Whit Caaaed
the Drop—Jerrett on
The Hinere Strike—Oil Market
Shaky—Some Lambs
Prm Fr boh, Novero he r2S.—.Vny thins that
threatens the iron market always proJuc.'s
a sensation in this king city of the iron
trade. Therefor.',when the announcement
was made Tuesday morning that Bessemer
steel rails were offered at $40 per ton, and
$43 delivered in Chicago, by the 9cranton,
Pa.. Steel Company, a thrill of consterna
tion ran through the whole common ty.
What does it mean ? lathe bottom about
to drop out of the icon and steel business?
And many other ijaestions were asked, the
a newer* to which were various. Tb« uuob
serving class of manufacturer:! thought a
panic stared thorn in the face; the work
man shuddered at the thought of eluded
worksnops and no pay in the dead of win
ter; merchant* of all classes pictured to
themselves-loss of trade and unpaid billa,
and the people trembled at the prospect of
a general depreciation o£ values. So in
separably ia the prosperity of Pittsburgh
linked with the prosperity of the iron
worid that every pulsation, the slightest
that may be, ui the arteries of its system,
is instantaneously felt here, and here is tlx*
best place to study the symptoms of any
aolual or threatened attack.
Your corresponds dent has talked with
a number of gentlemen prominently idetv
titied with the iron bu.*iie»!» in reference to
the meaning and probalu* etlect of Hie
present move. Collecting all their views
and making a general average, 1 am war
ranteJ in dtclaring there is
NoCaunr liirtifiirrnl Aluriu.
Ik is true that the immediate proepect for
manufacturers .of Uessenier >teel rails ia
not particularly rosy, hut it does not seem
tbat the decline in prices will extend to
either branches of the steel and iron busi
ness. Inquiry in the van .mm avwiuiesaif
trade developed the fact that the general
state of the iron market is healthy. Nail
manufacturers have no troabln in selling
nl their product at card rate*,, thei-pecialty
trade ia pood, and the deutaiid for heavy
work ia exceptionally larga both for steel
and iron. In the single department of rails
depression exists, and the general belief of
manufacturers i> that the change is the re
sult oi over production ia that line. Sir
Thomas Carnegie, of the lulgar Thonuon
Steel Works, woo.is regarded aa one of the
shrewdest men in tlie business, said, "Ke
trenchment seems to be the order with the
railroads. There will not be 12.0UO miles
of road built this year, and there will nut
be as much money spent on improvements.
Itessemer rails can't b« made for fin in this
country, particularly in the west where
they must ship their fuel from Pennsyl
vania. liul there has been a large over pro
duction. and we may expect a >40 market
for some time yet. Thia will forco
tke western mills to close, and will thus
eaable eastern manufacturers to get rid of
surplus stock, and may preveut the market
from goinglower. With free trade Kngl.iu l
could easily undersell us at £1" per ton.
, llails are there worth $26 per ton, and can
! be laid down in New Yorn for f • more,
! making $2S. Now, before we began malt
, ing rails in America foreign manufacturer* j
charged American road* #120 per ton, which
allowed them a very generous profit. Un
less there is a lowering of cost of produc
tion I can see no way of tiding over the
difficulty except by shutting dawn
The Beowenier Mill*
I all orer the country." Taking the "1 >wer
ing of cost of product'on" to include a re
duction in wages, Mr. Jarrett was a»ked if
the men would submit to such a measure,
lie said tbat whenever, in the regular
conrse of trade, a reduction of wages lie
comes an absolute necessity, the member*
of the association will otf'er no objection to
a reasonable pruning of the scale, always
being willing to bear their tharc of a le<it
imate decline.
•Secretary Joseph I). Werks of the West
ern Iron Association, thinks the drop has
prol ably been caiiseu by a tailing oil' in the
demand, due to theexpeciaiion <<(. the rail
read builders that Congress will reduce the
tari£T. While the genilemai ii of the
oj inion that the tarifT commission will
rfct mmend some reduction in toe tarill' on
rails, now $18 per ton, it would be nothing
like one-half, which would anil permit
American makers to keep out foreign r.iim,
which can not he laid down in Ne«• York
for less than $28, or $20 dear of ur./T.
JimeaM. Swank, secretary oftlic Amcri
can Iron and feted Aeao« iatn.ii. takes a
more g'oomy view of the situation and
believes the situation is one of marked and
increasing depression, both in the steel and
iron trade, inoicating injurious effect* upon
other trades and lower prices for labor. He
sees the same indications tbat preceded
the great decline of 1873; poor Imrve*!Is;
retrenchment by the railr >aus, au i a turn
ing of the balance of t-ada ag* nst us.
James 8. lien nett, E»q., and Geirge
Singer,Jr., two prominent iron nnnufa:
turers, see nothing in the scare hut tlie
natural depression of business at this time
of the ye»r, snd do not look for any rfe

"How is the strike progress ing^"' I
aiked of President Jones this afternoon.
*'The strike ia knocked out of time,"
was the reply. The miners do not seem
to want four cents, at least they won't
stick. They ought to have it. It was
promised us last Hpring and we ahoaM
tare it now. But the men seem to hare
' }pst their staying qualities. If they bad

fonr cents."
W hat "my advice" was, the PraeideQ t de
clined to aay. At all events the strike is
n<>t a success and the men arc ail going
back to work at 3% cents per bushel.
The oil market continues very.shaky,
and the lambs have been woefally fleeced
and turned out into the winter? blasts of
adversity. Instead of going to $150. oil has
dropped steadily, cent by cent, to 87 ifa.
Those who bought on margins stfl 90 are
now lea ailing tboir shortsightedness, and
