I'lio Iron -.11111 in tlic NhenniiKO mid Mahoning Valley "Will Close on Thursday Other Labor Troubles. Cleveland, 0., May 28. The refusal of ill tho iron mills in tho Shcnango and Mahoning valleys to sign the old scalo as printed by the committees of the Amalgamated Association, with the stout refusal of the men to work for n reduction, makes strike inevitable On next Thursdny night all tlio fircj in the different mills will bo allowed to go out, and 10,000 men and boys will bo idle. A prominent iron man said to-day: ' All tho rolling mills west of the mountains have been losing money, and if they wero compelled to closo and pay what the' owed, tliero is not one fifth of them would pay 100 cents on tho dollar. Tliero must bo a reduction in tho cost of manufacturing or every mill will fail. I think it will take about thrco moro years of time like last summer to clear tho iron trade of the small concerns who arc obliged to run to live, thus causing competition so great ns to bring ruin to tho trade. We do not expect good times again till this occur. Iron matters will bo unsettled till then. 1 do not expect this strike to last over a month, for tho simplo reason that tho men can not stand it. Tho association went into last year's strike on borrowed money, whioh lias not been returned. Tho individual members havo lost credit by not paying the debts contracted a year ago.

Two Prophecies Nplrltn of Gnrflcld and Custer tVhnt They Itovculcd to a tit. I.otiia Medium. St. Louis, May 28. A Mrs. Sawyer has caused a stir in spiritualistic circles by her alleged materializing powers. At her last seance, which was nttended by many newspaper reporters and other skeptics, tho spirits of General Custer and President Garfield appeared at tho entranoo to tho Cabinet. Tho former wroto upon a slato the following message Custer's ominous prediction : I warn the Government that tho worst Indian war that has occurred in tho history of tho country will begin in tho latter part of September. The plot has already been formed, and the matter is being secretly talked of in all tho tribes from Arizona to British Columbia. Indians in the Indian Territory will be inoited to join the rebellion, and the Government will find it necessary to call for volunteers to crush it. If the Government docs not take tho necessary precautions all tho frontier settlers will be murdered. A numbor of whites will join tho Indians, and are now aiding in arranging tho details of tho conspiracy. Again, I warn tho country, for tho sake of the women and babes who will be murdered if thoy are not protected. CusTsn. The spirit of Garfield was also in a prophesying humor, as witness tho following, writton upon tho same slate in a handwriting which was recognized by several present as that of the murdered President: I was tho delight of the interviewer on tarth, but now I should have a rest. Tho vanities of politics wero my ruin. How unutterably email they look to me now I The newspapers are responsible for my death, because thoy fomented tho quarrel that brought it about. Guiteau was the victim of a mastering doluslon, and acted from an irresistiblo impulse. I havo not teen him on this side. I wander always in a state of bliss. Thero is no troublo hero for tho spirits of tho good. Arthur will be the noxt Republican candidate for tho Presidency. Both candidates will como from Now York. Conkling will take no part whatevor in tho noxt campaign. Arthur will not get a united Republican lupport, and tho country will go Democratic. Blaine is tho greatest of living Americans, and would bo elected, but his Carty is ungrateful, and will not nominato im. Moxico will bo annoxed to the United Statos by a peaceful farrangoment in 1893. The American Government Bhould bowaro of tho railroad powor, lest it should .destroy tho liberties of tho people Tho Government should own tho railroads as it docs tho rivers and tho lakes, I often visit tho Whito Houso to wander through tho rooms and the beautiful grounds.

CLARA BELL FOUND Tho Missing GirlDiscoYored in a Bagnio at Lobanon, 0. A .Mere Child, Without Any ReMlzlna Sense or tlio Terrible Jjllo Sho Hud Entered Upon, Nnvcd In the XlcU. of Time. Lebanon, 0., May 28. Tho missing j Portsmouth girl Clara Boll, has been found hero .this morning, in a houso of ill-repute, by her brother and a detective. Tho house is kept by tho Ross family. Clara is scarcely moro than a child yet, being 'only fourteen years of ngc, and scarcely ablo to rcalizo tho nature of tho lifo she hd entered upon. Sho was doubtless therefore easily seduced to forsako her home and taka up with what appeared to bo a lifo of case and pleasure When found by hor brother but n few moments sufficed to dispel tho glamour with which tho vilo creatures who had enticed hor had ca3t over what in common parlanco is a "sporting lifo" She quickly realized that thero is ano gport bout it, but a lifo of ignomy and misery. Tlio sceno between tho biother and sister was extrcme'y affecting. Tho greatest indignation is expressed here, and threats of mobbing the bagnio nro freely indulged in. As yet the child has probably not been permitted to see or experience tho full measure of tho bagnio's depravity. About thrco wcoks ago Clara loit her home in Portsmouth, Ohio, ostensibly to attend tho Dramatic Feitival in this city. Since then nothing has been learned of her whereabouts, and her widowed mother has been very uneasy. Her intention was to bo gono four days. When tho time for her return enme and she did not appear her folks, thinking sho had been dotnincd with tho friends she was to stop with, wero not seriously disappointed. But receiving no word for two or three days, they becamo alarmed, and inquiry rovealcd tho fact that sho had not been in Cincinnati at all. Whore she had gono the nbovo dispatch PEOPLING UTAH. The Mormon Importation of Euro. penn Scum. New Yonic, May 28. Collector Robertson has received from tho Treasury Department an official communication from Mr. Frank II. Mason. United States Consul at Basle. Switzerland, in which tho attention of tho authorities is called to nn alleged serious violation of tho laws forbidding tho importation into this country of criminal or pauper immigrants. It appears that on board the Guion etenmer Navada, which sailed from Liverpool on the 17th, are 000 Mormon immigrants, recruited from various parts of l'uropo by missionaries from Salt Lake, who ai e constantly ransacking tho Old World, and who send to this port about two thousand proselytes every year. Over two hundred of those on the Nevada are from Switzerland, tho Consul says, and are of a vile, degraded and pauper class, many of them women, imported for baso purposes. The whole party, without exception, it is said, aro undesirable settlers and were paupers and burdens on tho communal authorities in Switzerland, who nro excecdinly glad to be rid of their troublesome charges. Nearly all tho immigrants on the Nevada aro raked up from the slums of SwiUcilnnd nud Germany to swell tho ranks of the Latter Day Saint3 in Utah, the Consul says, nnd thoso from Switzerland are mainly poor demented creatures, whoso passage to tho United States is paid for by their native communes, which thus rid themselves of burdensome citizens. Consul Mason makes an earnest protest against the continuance of this illegal practice, which has been resorted to by Switzerland in particular for a long time past, it is charged, nnd says: "Polygamy in the United States can never be exterminated whilo its harems can be freely recruited from the dregs of European society." Tho Collector forwarded to the Emigration Commissioners a copy of the Consul's letter and requested that when oho Nevada arrives he be informod at onco and the Mormon passongors dotnincd at Castlo Garden until an investigation is made. The Emigration Commissioners will make the inquiry as to tho status of tho immigrants complained of, and if it can be shown that thoy are paupers, insano, or criminals, or that their passago wa& paid to this country by tlio Swiss authorities, thoy will not bo allowed to remain. Seizins ofPoItrtmona Tens. New Yohk, May 28. Another lot of adulterated and fraudulent tea was soized yesterday at this port. It consisted of 270 packages of what is known as Bhulan a green tea, originally from Shanghai, It was intended by tho importers to send it to the coal distriots of Pennsylvania, whero tho miners use largo quantities of it every season. Somoof tho stuff was reccntlyjsont to tho Appraiser's offico, when tho customs officers, dotcoting its fraudulent tho wholo lot as unfit for consumption nnd rofused to pass it. Tho importers, awaro of tho appraiser's dooision, declined to appeal thorofrom, and will rcship tho cntiro lot baok to London, whence it camo. Beforo tea is condomncd it is submitted to tho government chemist for analysis. Assistant Appraiser Davies says that tho new law of Congress against tho adulteration of tea will provo very benofioial, not only to oonsumers, but to importers. The latter, it Is true, will nave to pay a little more for teas, but will be euro of getting a pure article, which at present thoy aro not getting. Tlio Wheat Bnlb Warm. Bunkeu Hill, III., May 28.

Captain Taylor could not bo found yesterday. A HORRLBE FIND. A Tonne Womnn Floating Off Toint Ilreczc With Her Throat Cut. New YonK, May 28, A shooking tragedy that equals in horror and atrocity the Jennie Cramer case, has como to light by tho discovery of tho mutilated body of a woman at Point Breeze, the end of Coney Island. In the winter and spring the place is almost desolate, its sandy wasto being seldom troddon by any human being save tlio kcoper, who watohes over tho small hotel of tho Manhattan Company, Bituatcd thero. Lato en Saturday tho watchman, Louis Smith, who has during tho winter been stationed at the hotel, took n walk along tho beach. An object that appeared to float up and down on tho waves far out, and which advanced nnd receded nt tho plcasuro of tho breakers, suddenly attracted his attention. As the tide was coming in, it steadily advanced to the shore. Then as it ciiuo nearer nnd nearer, tho keeper saw to hi horror ii was tho mutilated body of a woman. Both her face and body were swollen and discolored from long immersion, whilo a wreath of long black hair streamed out ou tho water. The keeper ran to tho hotel and procured a boat hook. Tho body was almost on the shore, and reaching out Smith drew it in. Fiom the condition of the remains it- was impossible to ascertain tho woman's age, which was thought to be between twenty and thirty. Tho throat was cut from ear to ear. To prevent identification it had been stripped of clothing, while the marks abiut the nnklcs seemed to indicate weights had been attached above the feet, all thu facts pointing to a most atrocious murder. Smith informed Coioner McMahon and gave him charge of the body. Tho most probable theory regarding the minder is the woman was murdered on bo'ird of a tug, stripped of her clothing and thrown overboard. On the 8th of May some men on a tug at a late hour tried to put a woman on the duck at the foot of Harrison street. Tho woman fell overboard, nnd tho watchman on tho dock, hearing her scream for help, ran down to the end of tho pier. The tido was carrying her out, and ho yhoutod, to tho men in tlio boat to save her. Tho boat steamed up to her and tho men dragged her out. The watchman reported tlio case, and was under tho impulsion they wero trying to drown the woman. IMPROVED TO DEATH. A Committee Kevixit the Doomed City of Elizabeth. New York, May 28.

It bogins in tho northwest section of a salt mnrsh and terminates in tho southeast section of a swamp.
