man I'pdegTat! was received with profound
regret, for he bed many personal friends
here. He will be greatly missed in Con

he wm very popular by reason of his warm
beerted social qualities and accommodating
spirit. He was known as a man whooe con
stituent* were his dearest concern,
and it was a noticeable fact
that while others were formulating
>;reat scheme* for national improvement,
IndegratFs bills and pet measures always
related purely to hia constituents or their
interestf. He became the authority in the
House tor all matters pertaining to the
agricultural resources of the country, and
a just and judicious bestowal of chairman
ships last year would have given him the
head of the agricultural committee of the
House. He was strong on tariff matters,
so far as they related to husbandry, and
his tariff speech of last session was the first
and moet widely circulated of the docn

Pittsbi'MR, December 2.—The feeling of
uneasiness treated f»jr the recent decline
in the price of steel rails has abated but
Tittle, notwithstanding tha opinions of
various manufacturers that ~ *
vu only temporary, and
of the iron
Tills uneasiness is best evidenced
by the watchful eye eastern manufacturers
are keeping on their western competitors,
and the frequent visits of steel manufac
turers of other cities to this center.
Among those who have l>een here the
present week was Mr. William Chisholm,
President of the Cleveland liolling Mill
Company; the establishment in which such
a serious strike recently took place. In
discutsing the situation, Mr. Chisholm
stated that his company ordinarily employ
ed over 5,000 men. but that many of them
were out of employment at present. This
reduction he s>aid was maile in the steel rail
department of the mill, and was due to the
fact that the company could not manufac
ture rails at present |irircs. This price he
lixes at I l.'i per ton.
The extent of the
Over I'rodii« lion
in steel rails may be 6ecn from the follow
ing statistics secured at the oltice of the
Western Iron Association. In 1*78 the out
put of steel rails in this country was 60',
(xiOtons, in lSsl it was 1,.'J00.006 tons, and
the etsimate for the present year is 1,500,
000, an increase of over 200 per cent in
four years. During the past two years the
capacity of the mills lias grown from 1,
250,n00 tons to 1', 125,000 tuns. It is not
necessary to state that the demand lias not
increased comuiensiirately with the pYo
dtn tion, and as a natural consequence the
market is very greatly over:-tucked.
The cause of this over production may
very reasonably l>e attributed to tha
it-mit-nry u|'un me j.oiU ... — ...
increase the capacity of their works. Look
ing the country over it does not sccni that
many new concerns have been established,
but "the expansion of those already
in existence lias been ticmendous.
Lvery manufacturer seems pressed
with a desire to bo known as
a kin'' or at least a prince, in the iron
world. Wills with a capacity of working
lUO-men have made additions giving them
a capacity of 500. Those fi»riiierlv employ
ing 400 and 5U0 now give employment to
two or three or five thousand. While it
would not be proper to mention names. I
could point to a halt dozen such over
prown establishments, and I dire say
Wheeling can furnish several examples.
The general failure of-strikes in all di
rections last summer and fall was an indi
cation that business was being pushed to
its utmost limit and that

Added to the decreased demand, the natural

this effect. The closing of the works of the
North Chicago rolling mill, yesterday for

were thrown <»ut of employment, has had a

A change of policy is always dangerous to
existing business interests and the prudent

country now. While I am firmly convinecd
that the outcome of the matter will be a
permanent reduction in prices, I yet do not
believe the result will be a serious blow to
the laboring class. The reduction will not

"I have not heard of any of the mills

may do the same."
Is there any reason for shutting down or
running on single turn?
"There is certainly a reason for It; a lack
ot orders if sufficient. Iron men do not
wish to pile up iron. They can't afford to
make iron at.present prices. Iron is as
low as it ever was then labor is toe high.
If there is any cause for depression it is
overproduction, and the only remedy for
this is to stop producing. Many of the
blast furnaces will doubtless clofe, as they
cannot afford to run at the present prices
of ore snd labor. Iron ore is entirely too
high, and the furnaces cannot ail'ord to go
on making iron that cost them $'_'0 and

low as it has been since '72 or '7;». Takiug

accident. He Mid: "Tbe thread of tha
screw ibat holds tbe spring catch
was worn or torn off, and the screw was
blown out of tha gun. The catch, losing
its Lold, peruiitted tbe gua barrel to drop
and that sent the ballet below Its aim.
Mr. Fravne's breast and neck ware buraed
and blackened by tbe powder escaping at
tbe breach of the gun. The prosecution
here rested and said the charge of man
slaughter should ba snstaiaed by tbe stat
ute, which forbids any oae to point a

Counsel for Frayua claimed that
the statute did" not apply, as
the pun was not pointed at the deceased,
but at an apple, six inches above tbe head.
He suggested also that Frayne had already
suffered the won't that could happen to
any one. and that no punishment by the
law could give greater weight to tha lesson
of this accident. Judge Higby leaned to
tbe opinion that tbe statute wae not die
obeyed in this case, because the- gun was
aimed at an object and not at a person.
He said the testimony clearly showed that
there was not tha slightest criminal intent,
and the prisoner should be discharged.
