The Tin and Sheet Ironworkers’ Un ion of Brooklyn has decided to work hand in hand with the cornice work ers. As it is likely that several strikes may occur because of the demand for higher wages, a committee was elec ted to make preparations for such oc currences.

A new and novel method of warfare against the New York contractors has been evolved by the East Side garment makers. It is the confiscation of the sewing machines of those contractors who failed to keep their agreements with the union, and the establishment of co-operative shops with these ma chines to stock them. The Illinois State Board or Aroitra ■ tion has decided that the Chicago Bookbinders' Union was in the right in its controversy with the W. B. Con key Company and other employers.

The delegates further stated that they had received more support from such organizations than they had from the labor organizations. After a six weeks’ struggle peace has been restored between the Agricultural Iron League and the Architectural Iron Workers’ Union, of Chicago. Under the new agreement helpers are done away with, and only one apprentice to two journeymen will be allowed. The clause allowing either party to with draw from the contract providing thir ty days’ notice was given was stricken out, and the workmen will receive 35 cents common labor at present is enjoying better times than it has experienced before at the head of the lakes in five or six years. Wages have advanced and there is work for everybody. In fact, there is a great scarcity of labor in Duluth and vicinity. The depart ure of large numbers of men to the harvest fields has made the scarcity of men felt to sncb an extent that many employers are finding it a diffi cult matter to get the work perform d that it is necessary to have done. Wages for common labor have advan ce fullv 20 per cent, and in many cases more than that. The railroads have found it necessary to import Ital ians Into this section in some cases.— Duluth News-Tribune. SHE HAD HUSTLED.

On last Monday evening Wheeling Union Chapter No. 1 held Its monthly convocation with a good attendance of companions present. There was so much routine business to attend to on that occasion that it wa9 found to be impossible to confer more than the Mark and Past Degrees, on the team who were in waiting to be exalted to the Arch. The conferring of the other degrees was deferred until another meeting. The new officers conferred the degrees splendidly, and they were complimented for their efficiency, not only be the companions, but also by James McCahon, Most Excellent High Priest, who was present. On Tuesday evening, there was a good attendance of brethren at the monthly meeting cf Bates Lodge No. 33, which was held on that evening, but as no candidates appeared the only thing to come before the body was business of a routine nature. On Thursday evening Nelson Lodge No. 30 held semi-monthly meeting, but with a rather small number present, though they were equal to the emer gency, which was the raising of three Fellow Crafts to be Master Masons, and of which we can report the work well done throughout, and in a most impressive manner. Bro. Dunn, Wor shipful Master, presided in the east, and in the conferring of the degree di vided the work between himself and Senior Warden Geo. B. Ford, and the honors for good work was also divided between them. No meetings will be held the coming week, unless the Shrine shall have f. meeting when the members receive no tice from the Secrtary. - • EASTERN STAR.

One of the commendations of the Son of God to man when He was on earth was “and I was sick, and ye vis ited me.” There is nothing that will strengthen the Order so much as fra ternal visitations. This may be best I seen by a brother when confined to his ! home, to his room for many days, and ! who is often helped more by the cheery visit by members of his lodge than by the doctor's medicine. But let me give you some wholesome advice. Don’t eit down by him and whine, but with cheering conversation lead his mind for a time away from his troubles. It is not necesary to tell him that he looks badly and that you sympathize with hun in his affliction. His glass j too truly tells him the first, and your visit and friendly words show your in terest in him. Don’t whine to him about such things as may have gone amiss in the lodge, or over your owu affairs, but tell him of the pleasant happenings and show' by your I00K3 that all is well and that the world is better and brighter and growing that, way every cycle of the sun. Lee the magnetism of your own soul create brightness and hope in his. Remem- 1 ber the old proverb that “as iron shar- j peneth iron, so does the faot of a man nis friend.” If you do these things, your visit will do good, and your hohr J be well j better B^^^**"* shades of your own surroundings nurse j the gloomy rumblings of unselfish ft el- j fishness. AGAIN THE LIGHT PIERCES THE DARKNESS. A late issue of the Masonic Chroni cle, published at Columbus, Ohio, con tained the follow ing: “The last cf the South American States to cast off the supremacy of the Roman church is the Republic of Ec uador, which, under the guidance o! President Elroy Altars, has recently adopted a constituting separating church and state, abolishing all orders of seclusion, expelled the Jesuits, and established free schools. It is claimed that under the recent revolution that Archbishop Schumacher, head of the Catholic hierarchy, commanded a di vision of the opposing army in battle, and besides the Archbishop, that many : priests held commands in the army. I The new' constitution separates church ! and state as in other Latin-Americpn ' countries, limits the powers and func- J tions of the priests, divests the church of much of its income, and restrains its j coutrol of church property. The next j step will be to tax church property, for 1 support of the state. For years ther? | has been a growing of liberal senti- j ment in Ecuador, but it was mostly I confined to the sea coast towns.

On Thursday evening, August 5, i Wildey Lodge No. 2, D. of R., held a f very interesting meeting and decided : to hold a picnic at Wheeling Park on the 2tlth inst., to which everybody Is cordially invited. This Rebekah Lodge is in a very flourishing condition, and is considered the Banner Lodg» of the State. They have several . $ plications , for membership, and are doing a grand ' work for Odd Fellowship. Let the | members of the various Subordinate i Lodges take a deeper interest in tms i branch of the Order, and there is no ; telling the great amount of good that ' could be accomplished for the Order in West Virginia. K. M. C. Silver Castle No. 11 Ancient Order Knights of the Mystic Chain, at its meeting August 7, received two appli tations for membership. Our next meeting is the time for conferring the Sir Knights Degree. This makes 14 since March. The Military Rank held a business meeting and instructed the trustees to secure a hall to meet in. It is in a good financial condition. The Order is making preparations to attend the select Castle session which meets at Berkeley Springs on the fourth Tues day in September. The last meeting night of every month is devoted to the good of the Order. If the Sir Knights want to know what it is. let them come and see. The latchstring is out for all visiting Sir Knights. Each member has started out this term with the firm determination of doubling our mem bership by the first of next year. May success attend every effort. IN* THE GRAMMAR CLASS.

I SEEN AND HEARD IN MANY PLACES. The cable brings the announcement that Lord Wolsley, the commander-in chief of the British army, Is so serious ly ill that he is not expected to live. For forty-five years—he entered the army in 1852 when he was 19 years of age—he has been a vivid picture in the eyes of the British people, figuring suc cessfully before them both as a soldier and a diplomat. Yet. singular to relate —singular at least to most Americans to whom the name Irishman suggests instantly a thought of enmity to all that is English—this man, who stands to-day at the head of Queen Victoria’s military forces, is an Irishman: and the wonder further grows, when along side this fact is placed the other, that i the commander of the British army in ( India is also %n Irishman In the per- ; son of Lord Roberts of Kandahar. To- ] day these men are considered through- j out Europe as the leading soldiers of | this age. and if Wolseley dies, there is 1 little doubt that there will be found j no one in Great Britain to take his i place, and that his fellow-irishman and I soldier will be summoned from India | to fill the dead man’s shoes. The story of Lord Wolseley’s life is full of the dramatic. During England's second war with Burmah. in 1S52, he was only an ensign. In a leadirg stor ming party, both he and a brother of ficer wehe shot down as they entered the enemy’s works. One bled to death in five minutes and Wolseley was only saved almost by a miracle after months of terrible suffering. The Crimean war, in 1854, found him ready for duty, but he got terribly knocked to pieces there. During the siege of Se bastopol fate was strangely against him. He was slightly wounded on the 10th of April and on the 7th of .Tune: but on the HOt hof August, while at work in the trenches, be was knocked over by a solid shot striking near him, ! killing those about him and rendering him almost lifeless. He was picked up for dead and hardly recognizable from j the number of wounds on his face. His ; body as if filled with the contents of a shotgun. The surgeons regarded him as beyond hope, but be took a different , view of it. and after suffering for many | weeks he recovered. For a long time he lived in a dark cave, total blindness being threatened from the effects of his wounds. While this dire calamity was hanging over him. the fall of *Sebastapol was announced. In wounds Lord Wolselev always lind any amount of bad luck, for he hardly ever went to war without return!ng a cripple, hut they gained for him the coveted pro motion for which he fought. ^ « A When the Crimean episode was con cluded, he was ordered to China - diplomatic mission, and was shipwreck* ed near Singapore. After startling art ventures he was rescued, completed nis duty, and the same year, 1857, he was found in India aiding to suppress the mutiny. This created him a lieuten ant colonel at a single jump from the captaincy that his brilliant service in the Crimea brought him. In 186J h« took part in the Chinese war, and af terwards w as sent on a diplomatic 1 * Lon to Nankin. In 1861, about the be ginning of our civil war. he was hur riedly sent to Canada in connection with the Trent affair, anJ ^afhe uJ*" uty uartermaster General of , North America and studying the condi- ( tions of life in the United States. The Red river expedition In 1870’won him a knghthood, and the following year he spent as Assistant Adjutant General li the British War Office. The Ashantee war made him a full major general an inspector general of the forces. •'roin 1875 to 1878 he was Governor of Natal first and Cyprus afterwards. The Zulu war, in 1879, found him commander-in chief of the British forces and High Commissioner to South Africa, T he Egvptian campaign of 1882 raiaed him to a peerage, and the war In the Sou dan in 1884. caused him to he consid ered the first soldier in England. On his return, in 1886, he was made Adju tant General at the IN ar Office, and given full swing, so far as Parliament would permit him. in the advancement of the army, the welfare of which he always had at heart. In October, 1890, he was sent to his native isle in com mand of the British forces in Ireland an appointment which received general approbation. About one year ago he was recalled to England .and made commander-in-chief of the British forces, thus rounding ouV a most re markable and honorable career dur ing which ho has never known defeat in war and never advocated a policy in peace that was not generally tveogni* ! ed as wise and appropriate, \\ hen he : was made commander-in-chief that po sition was occupied, but not filled by : the aged Duke of Cambridge, the Queen’s cousin. Ho was commander only in name, and no one dreamed that he would be an available leader in the eventof war. Ho was kept there, how ever, with the expectationof finally placing in the position the Duke of | Connaueht. the Queen’s third son, but j public sentiment proved too strong, and I Wolseley was summoned to the place j to which he rightly belonged, and thus, for the first time in a very long period. 1 ! a man who had sprung from the noddle | classes was placed in a position genor-! I ally reserved for one of royal blood. • •*••• Lord Wolseley has pronounced and interesting views about these United States. He privately gave voice to them, at the time of his appointment | to command in Ireland, In conversation with the late Col. Frank A. Burr, the well known newspaper correspondent, who was then in England, and who re peated them to the narrator. Said Tx)rd Wolseley upon that occasion: “In America you have a pure democracy: and a pur* demccracy is capable of doing much more in the direction of strong measures and of war than a mixed system such as ours. When de mocracy is thoroughly established in England the chief security against war will have disappeared. It is democra cies that make wars and oligarchies that are afraid of them, espeeially an oligarchy like ours, which is timid and hampered by the party system. Our system, by dividing the nation polit ically into two halves, each of which opposes on principle whafever the oth er one proposes. paralyzes our strength when a Minister is tempted to go to J war. If our people were as unanimousy in cases of affront as the United States! we should go to war many more time* than we do.
