OflcrN r Compromise-Settlement Xliiiit lie Made With tlio llrotucr lioud. New York, July 23. It was laid last night upon what is.believed to be good authority, that a grand coup win in preparation by the strikors, which if successfully accomplished, would certainly iutlict a serious blow upon the Western Union Company. The plan, as it was outlined by a gentleman well known in tolegraph oirolcs, was this: A combination was to be formed between the American Rapid Tologmph Company, "tho Haiti more & Ohio Telegraph Company aud the Brothorhood of Telegraphers, with tho object of transferring much of tho business heretofore controlled by tho Western Union Company to its two younger rivals, and thus crippling still further the strikers' great adversary. The present strike, as is known, is directed mainly against tho Western Union Company. Tho other two companies while thoy havo not paid thoir employes as much as is called for by tho bill of grievances on which the strike is based, have been more liberal than the Western Union. The sentiment of the Brotherhood to them was from the first disposed to be more kindly than toward tho monopoly company. The operators in tho office of the lialtimoro &Ohio and tho American Rapid went out with, tho Western Union, howover, and tho work of the two companies, like that of the third, has almost conic to a standstill. On tho invitation of Manager Clark, of the B. & 0. ofhco here, the striking operators of that company met with him. Manager Clark, ou behalf of tho company ho represents, mado them an offer of better terms than those demanded by tho Brotherhood, ptovided, howover, that the men consent to deal with the company as individuals, and thus ignore their organization. Tho overtures of the company were respectfully but firmly rejected by tho B. & 0. members of tho Brothorhood. Tho announcement of the evidont weakening of tho company was received with tlio greatest enthusiasm at the operator's meeting. Cincinnati, July 23. The situation bore is unchanged. The striking operators aro holding two meotings every day, nd tho telegraph companies are doing tho best they can to dispDso of thoir business. Cincinnati, July 24. Mr. Gould, chiof operator, said that things were not working well on account of the storm at Pittsburg and other points in tho Bast and the wires were of no avail. They had sent home three or four men because thero was nothing for tnem to do. He had sent uwny an average of five applicants whom he did not want every day wince the strike wns on. About thirty men were ou duty attending to all that could be done, considering the storm. Four men working on Now York wires failod. Three were on St. Louis all day, two on Buffalo, aud two on Cleveland. Tiicy had sent 000 mesago to Louisville, and had four men ou t lie Chicago wire. Some of the men who had been out of tho business for a number of years were good, and some bad. Some men would never, Mr. Gould said, make good operators, simply on the same principal that one man would make a good musician and another novcr w uld. As there have been rumors lately that the Western Union would be sued for damages by' the Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Max-well said no such stops had been taken. There was a contract with the company to furnish daily reports in full, and they bad not been satisfactory at all. One day there was none, and othor days tho service was only partial. Tho strike could not have occurred at a timo when it would given less trouble. It luckily came just between two crops and the effect was light. Had it como some weeks earlior or later the result might have been disastrous. There was nothing that would affect brokers and dealers' business so much as crippled telegraph facilities, and tho strike was, of course, regardod with alarm, the majority believing that thistnuble might havo been averted had the company generously met the operators half way." Washington, July 24. The telegraph offices here aro all either dead or dying. The American Rapid manager confosscs that tho business of hia ofhco is completely paralyzed, and adds: "If tho strike were to end to-day it would take six month or a year to recover thojbugincss it has lost to tho company.' Tho Baltimore & Ohio is taking very little business, but handles the specials sent over its lines better than any of the other companies. UThe conduct of the strikers continues to be admirable, and the impression is hourly growing stronger, both hero and in Now York aud Philadelphia, that they will sucoeed, and that the power has at last beori born strong enough to compel that monster monopoly, the Western Union, to recognize tho rights of thoir employes to at loast a pittanco of the fat dividends declared quartorly on stook watered to the extent of four times tho real value of its plant lNDUNArois, July 24. Tho oompany's officers express thomsolves as gaining ground against the strikers, but thisjis not sustained by observations or reports of business. The Brothorhood on the other Land is strong in the faith and olalm groa gains all over tho country. The markets continue in an unsettled condition, owing to tho inability of the telegraph companies to furnish quotations promptly. Reports from Chicago have been received at irregular intervals, but with greater dispatoh. than on Saturday. The delay in private business continues embarrassing. Messages taken last week havo not yet been forwarded in tome oases, and some business men complain because the company 'had not evea mailed promptly tb.edispatpb.es rfiopitedj. New York, July 21. Tho Executive Committee of tho Board of Trade and Transportation ask that the differoncos be' tweon the Western Union Telegraph Company and its employes be reforrod to arbitration. The striking operators stated that while the Western Union Company declared they had 300 operators omployed, the fact was they had only about Statements were read at a meeting from two operators in the main ofhco of the Westorn Union, setting forth that tho company is totally unable to hnndle business. Out of 600 men and women employed last week It was said only thirty-eight mon and women aro loft. Theieprt that the cable operators bod struck is emphatically denied by tho tele graph authorities. Tho oablo Is regularly at work. STEAMBOAT ATTACHED. Outrage oh n Young Man From Illln oli the Cause of Mob Violence. Mkju'Iiis, Tenn., July 21. Tho officers f the Arkansas river packet Ida Darragh report that as the steamer approached Burnott's Landing, just forty miles above tho mouth of the Arkansas river, a mob of several hundred, stationed on the bank, fired into tho steamer, fatally wounding Alfred Wornor. a Polander, who was working the county conviots near Red Fork, A young machinist from Clinton or Dewitt, Illinois, omployod on a farm near Red Fork repairing the machinery of cotton mills became indobtcd to a Mrs. King for a few dollars board, and was preparing to lonve without settling, when ho wns arrested and taken before a ' magistrate, who sontencod him to work in the fields along with other conviots for attempting to dofraud.

Be Poisoned IIIh Trotiblcnome YIhI tor. Waynesville, N. C, July 23. Some weeks ago, at this place, Thomas "Whitehead, a well-to-do tanner, went to tho house of Andy Fiauuis, a neighbor, near Waynesville, and ate dinner with him. Several times previously he had dined with Francis. Soon utter eating dinner this time Whitehead was seized with sudden sicklier, and in a quarter of an hour died in horrible agony. It begun to bo suspected that Whitehead was poisoned. Last week his body wasdisuiterrod, and it was found that strychnine exinicd in quantities. Francis was arrested and a preliminary trial held. Francis wns sent to jail at Waynesville, where he now lies, to bo tried lor his life at tho fall term of court. It is stated that tho only cause nlloged for tho crime is that Francis was tired of having Whitehead eat at his house, and took this means of ridding himself of or unwelcome co' pany. No c.iso in the State lias attracted more attention than this. A Noted Criminal Oner .More In Iroim. Mahion, N. C, July 23. Hake C.

Demand For Paper lionises. New York, July 24. Advices from Panama report that a now field has opened there to an industry of this country. Tho people there havo read that the domes of one or two largo buildings now being erected in this country are to bo mado of ni ache, and havo concelvod tho idea that houses of that material would bo just the thing for an earthquake country. Tho Panama Star and Herald devotes considerable space to it, describing the manner in which tho domes are built, and showing tho valuo of light and elastio material for houses in sections whore earthquakes abound.

Cincinnati, July 23. I mot at tho Gibson House ono of the Commissioners of the first Exposition held In this city. ' It. is thirteen years ago that this scries of annual exhibitions wns , undertaken. Wc looked upon it ns a venturesome oxporiment, but there wns sufficient in tho Textile Fabric Exhibition of tho year to give us hope aud as progress was made in iccciving a gunrautee wo were assured that the people of the city were with us. It only remained to mako the exposition of such force as to draw largely fiom the country for patronage. In a two hundred niilo radius of Cincinnati, including Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky there is a population of fivo million of pcoplo ami from the exposition pntrouago to give its success was to bo'had. Tho. first exposition as grcnt aud attractive as it was, fell far short of the subsequent brilliant shows." "Chicago, Louisvillo and other cities imitated Cincinnati expositions, but failod to nttain the samo degree of success," I said, "can you account tor their failure?" "In a measure. Wo had the start of them and enjoyod the prcstego that fact gave. Again a rotation in management is observed, each year a now board of commissioners being appointed thus receiving the power of now ideas. Had any one board been coutlutud through thiitcen years, thero would have been but little ditlcrcuue in tho expositions. As it is, each has many special leuturcH which make it worth while for thousands who auw the previous expositions to come again. In the Cincinnati expositions something new, strange, attractive aud instructive can alwayp ho. found. Our coiuiiiissione&i do not believe in repetition. It is true in Main Hall there has been something of humouess, but in the other departments, such as Powor Hall nnd the Art Gallery novelties can be placed annually to chango the whole and givo the exposition almost a completu newness. Another feature has been the care and value placed upon the iloral exhibits. Theso gave great popularity to the first exposition and have been maintained regularly with always increasing success. Flowers, you know, are beauties that never tire tho senses. We run always look at thoiu aud admire them. But above all essentials of success must be placed the popular prico of admission. It is almost nothing, and while to many diiiblotho sum, cents, would iie a trivial matter tiio very class upon whom tho exposition must depend will hesitate a long tunc before paying it unless to m a circus. This la pioved by tho experience of other cine where fifty cents is charged. The result is always a balance on the wrong side of the ledger. We have a late instance in the pecuniary fniluro of t!io Chicago Exhibition of ilailuay Appliances. Fiity,cems was charged ti.oro. Tin show was no doubt worth it, but the peopla will not pay that amount to tee machinery and appliances, the most of which they can see every day for nothing. I learn i .iiit that exhibition must call upon its uniantors to meet a deficiency of Tuo commissioners of our Expositions ltnvo never yet called upon their IOIH." . "This year's board," continued my "aro enthusiastic in thoir work. They avo leaving no field untried where novelties Hiiitnblc to the standnrd aud regulation of Cincinnati expositions can bo obtained. Gieat progress has been mado for the next exposition and I believe the city as usual will be crowded with strangors in September and October." This c'ty has boon peouliarally fortunate in all efforts to obtain for hers If a distinctiveness in tho show line. Peoplo at homo and abroad have not been slow to recognize Cincinnati attractiveness in this line. It would seem that with successes in expositions, musio cal, opera and dramatic festivals, the limit had been reached, but thoro is another novolty coming to the front, that to bo presented on the day preceding and the day of tho Exposition oponing. This is the festival of the Ordor of Cinoinnatus. It is akin to Now Orleans Marda-Gras, the Veiled Prophets of St. Louis and tho Oriolo of Baltimoro. Last year tho Exposition opening day wns signalized by a wonderfnl procession of knights and tableau cars, and after a fow weeks rest tho participants therein organized tho Order of Cinoinnatus, for the purpose of continuing and enlarging such exhibitions. This year a marvelous advancement will bo mado upon tho first exhibition, with a of the days festivities with grand balls, parades and ceremony. Among the features will bo the reception of King Rex of New Orleans and a night par ado of merry maskers, tablonux on floats and all tho merry paraphernalia of such affairs, tho floats are boing prepared and aro wonderfully artistlo in symbolizing interesting episodos and historical events. Wo aro suffering from intonsoly hot July weather, with intervals of cool days and nights, a suprsmo dullness of amusements, except what are given at the hill top houses, but we propose to make up for it in Soptombor under the auspices of tho Order of Cinoinnatus.

Eddy, speoial agent of the Interior Department, has eulminatod in tho presentation of fifty-seven indictments for fraud, false entries and publio lands, etc. Although those are the first indictments ovor brought for this offense in this Territory, it is believed there were many othor offenders against the public laud laws whose crooked practices will be uuearthed by the able and energetic special agent. CAUGHT IN HIS-OWN TRAP. A Yonkcrs Toiitli lloveat a n u ruin ry Which Ho Hnd omiiiltted. YoNKEns, N. Y., July 24. Jerome tho night operator at ttie Yonker telophono central station, notified tho that some one was tamporing with the wires at tho telograph office in tho Getty House. Tho officers found that burglars hod broken into the rear of tho telegraph office and had taken away tho contents of tho money-drawer and othor valuables. A hoavy chisel and the latter bontdn the shape of a jimmy, were pickod up from tho office floor. Kolmar went to the station later in the morning and identified the tools ns those used by some of his companions in tho telophono office. Captain Mangin suspecting tho man's story to be false, sent two officers to search Kol-mar's room. Thoy found in a trunk a number of pistols, knives, pocketbooks, cut glasswaro and sovoral skoloton keys. Kolmar on being arrested, confessed to robbing tho telegraph office and the store of a stationer, and accompanied tho police to Nodine Hill, where ho dug up a quantity of gold and silver wrapped in an old newspapor. On returning to the polico station the money was identified by tho manager of the telegraph office. An Offense Condoned. Chicago, July 24. Mr. Dawson, of Monmouth. 111., obtained S315 worth" of credit from McKlndley, Gilohrist & Co., on the representation that he was worth $15,000 over and abovo all liabilities. Tho goods were purohased on a ninety days' credit, and when tho bill became duo Mr. Dawson refused to pay on ,tho ground of insolvency. McKiudlcy, Gilchrist & Co. secured an indictment against him horo, but at tho trial Dawson was notpresont, as everything had been prearranged, nnd tho presonco of his nttornoy oven was unuocossary. Gilchrist & Co. condoned tho offense on receiving the amount duo them, and prevailed upon tho Prosecuting Attoruoy to abandon tho prosecution of an oli'ense committed against tho public, because a privato wrong had been repaired. Numerous casos of the samo kind have occurred, and if thoy continue tho criminal court will bo resolved into a common collecting agency, where crime may bo overlooked in consideration of a reimbursement of private losses. CllfT Dweller Canon. Winstow, A. T July 24. Near Cosnino, fifty miles from this place, is a vast canon, onco tho abodo of cliff dwellers. Tho brink of the chasm is so deep that tho eyo can hardly see its bottom. Actual measurement makes it 2,000 feet deop. Tho width varies from 200 at tho bottom to 1,500 leut at the top. The sidos are solid rock, but in layers of perhaps thirty feet iu depth, each layer having a projecting or shelving edge extending from six to twenty foot. It Is under the shelving work that the cliff dwellers built their abodes Some wiso men bay that the projections are excavations for tho purpo of building, mado by theso same olitf dwellers, but the work is too vast to admit of suoh a theory. Army OnicerM Hospital. Wasiiinuton, July 24. Senator Logan's pet project for seouriug the erection of a hospital at Hot Springs, Arkansas, for tho usQ of broken down array and navy officers, is in a fairwayjof becoming a reality. The last Congress appropriated funds for its erection and bids for performing the work havo beon opened at the treasury. The bids ranged from $00,000 to $100,000. Logan's effort in tho successful promulgation of his sohemo made him an object of extraordinary criticism iu and out of Congress, the matter being declared a hugo job; the latter charge being strengthened by tho olalm that but fow officers of any prjde would soek health or attention at such a place An Editor Whipped. BLOOuiNaroN,Ill., July 24. Mrs. ard, a woman of sotno notoriety, invaded tho sanctuary of the Independent and horsowhippod the editor, ex-Rev. H. O. Hoffman.

Mrs. Pritchard was introduced into the family of Thomas Ashley somo month ago, causing a separation of Mr.Ashl.cy and wifo, it is said.

Sho Wants No Eefleotion of ' Royalty, Why She In Hot Natlnfled With the) Marquis ori.aiidMlo wne The Orange Society A Period of Financial NUMBER 5. Special to Am. Tress Association. Toronto, Ont., July 24. The principal topic of conversation here is the new Governor General of the Dominion, whom England proposes to send out ns a monarchal head to the Canucks. There is a general feeling of dissatisfaction, and on the part of many, of indignation, that Her Majosty should be represented by the Marquis of Landsdownc. The Canucks don't liko the Marquis of Lnndsdowne. It is truo they don't know him and know very little about him, but for that very reason thoy don't liko him, and don't want him. Tho reason for this dislike lies duoper than is apparent to the outsidor. The Governor, year by year has come to be regarded moro and more in the light of a useless and expensive figurehead. Latterly he has como to bo a mero nobody, bo far as tho affairs of government are concerned, and quito oovershadowed by tho Canadian Premier. John A. McDonald is the man of Canada just now, and whoever tho Governor may be he can do no moro than grace an executive seat, a mero shadow of Her Imperial Majesty, liablo at any moment to bo dlspolled. Tho Canucks are willing to endure a man of ability and reputation such as tho Marquis of Lome's predecessor, but for tho Marquis, of whom it could only bo said that lie was the Quoen's daughter's husband, thoy folt that thoy paid too doar. When he attempted to give them nil ho had to offer through his wife, a provincial court, with a modified form of royal etiquette, they would have none of it, and made sport of the regulations of his master of ceremonies. They mado the gubernatorial scat too warm for him, and tho princess became disgustod with so uncourtly a court. Yet because sho was tho Queen's dnughtcr, in whom they perceived an attempt to honor them, thoy endured tho Marquis for a season. Now, however, the attempt to imposo upon them aji obscure Marquis with neither royal alliance nor a reputation for anything to command him, is too great an imposition. Why? why should they kick against a moioly untried man? he fact is, tho under current of feeling is against any reflection of majesty at nil iu Caundn. Sinco Prof. Goidwiu Smith first started Canada X'o. 1 und advocated Canadian independence, the movement has gained great strength, beyond wunt appeals ou the political surface Latterly it has been aided by the leeling of insecurity consequent upon tlio failing health of the Quce . A King, ami suoh a King as Prince Albert, with his unenviable reputation promises to be, is not encouraging to the Canadian Roy-i) lis s, while the situation turns tho thoughts of tho Liberals in tho direction of independence. One of the causo of ferment in politics here, is tho unsucuc'ilul effort of tho Orango organization1 to become incorporated. The war between this order iu Western Canada and the French Catholicism iu tho East, mill rages witu unabated fury. Sir John A. McDonald, the conservative priemior, himself an Orangeman, has caused the defeat of the bill of incorporation, rather than sacrifice his following among the Frenoh, of the East. In fact ho has Bold out tho great royal main-stay in the Dominion, which can be rolled upon to sustain tho control of tho desendants of William of Orange in Canada. Of course he is meeting with a deluge of denunciation from members of the ordor; but in common with tho decline of royal sentiment and influence by tho decline of tho established church, tho Orange society is rapidly becoming an ofleotivo institution. In faot, Sir John is suspoctcd of making ready to forestall the liberal party by the insertion of an indopendenoe plank in tho conservative platform when the timo is ripe The Dominion is now experiencing a recurrence of financial depression, marked by many business failures. The tariff policy wbiok three years ago brought the eonsorvativo party into power, during a poriod of depression, booraod the industries of the dominion and effected temporary prosperity. It is now, howovor, reacting in tho way of which, under tho system of long credits prevailing here, is proving ruinous. Sho manufactures nothing for foreign markets, and tho homo market is easily glutted. This attempt to bo indepondeut of the United States proving disastrous, tho liborals havo a show shortly of coming into powor on a cry of free trade between the two countries. Commoroinlly ono with tho United States, hor periods of depression would at loast be at longer intorvals. Shad. A Hebrew Axanulted. New York. July 24. An action has beon brought in tho Suporior Court of this city by Lowis Baptist against tho Manhattan Railway Company. The plaintiff declares that on June 10 last he purohashed a tiokot at tho Canal street station and was about to entor one of the cars whon he. alloges the conductor said to him : "You are a Jew. Wa do not pormit Jews upon this car," and at the same timo pushed him from the ear and struok him several times in the faoe. The plaintiff deolares that the assault was a groat shock to him, and that he was confined to his horns soveral days on aooount of his injuries, Through his aouasel bs has brought suit against ths sompany to recover $5,000 damagsi,
