The Trouble to Extend Over tho Whol Country President Pltspsttrlok, of th Xros' Molders' Union, Interviewed op the Bltantlon Other Labor Troubles. Cincinnati, April 2d. The conference be tween President Fitzpatrick, of the iron molders' union, and President Cribben, of .the Btovo Manufacturers' Defense associa tion and, the other general ofltcers, to effect n, settlement of tho St. Louis mqldors1 strike, and a suspension Of tho general molders lock out, has proved fruitless. The Stove Mdnu facturers' association h'ave refused the same proposition that thoy'thomsolvos maJo"aTfew weeks ago in regard to tho trouble at Bridge, iBeoeh & Co.'s, Bt Lonis, namely: a 6 per cent .advance at onca and ft 5 per cent, ad vance Juno or July 1, if tho prlco of stovos could be advanced. The molders' first do"-, mand was for a 15 per cent, advance, but thoy were willing to compromise on 10 per cent. President Fitzpatrick telegraphed Bridge, Beach & Co., March 23, if they would allow u 10 per cdnt. advance, aad the firm replied that the matter was left entirely in tho hands of Henry Cribben, president of -the Defenso association. By the refusal of the latter to now accept their.own proposition a long lockout is now inevitable. "We are able to cope with tho Defenso association," said President Fitzpatrick to-day. "Wo offered to take their own terms to effect a settlement and they have refused. It con firms more than ever the impression abroad that there is some conspiracy to pool the price of stoves. A limited supply of an ar ticle makes a big difference in the price. They certainly intended to shut down soon anyhow, and have made tho moldorc' refusal to work on the obnoxious patterns a pretext. I received words of sympathy and encour agement from the secretary of the Federa tion of Trades to-day and wo can roly upon their support It is remarked that tho ac tion of Powdorly and the gonoral executive board of the Knights of Labor in holding the Detroit Knights of Labor moldors at work on the tabooed patterns is suspicious, but I think they will go out yet, I think Mr. Powr derly means right. All the union molders in the Second district will now go Out "We shall hold them in no longer. I understand the patterns ore to be soon introduced In tho first district, and, of course, none of our molders will work upon thejnv" President Cribben, of the Btovo Manufac turers' association, returned to "Chicago, to day. The general executive bourd of the iron molders remain in session to-day, but all the oflloers will return to. their homes to night "f hey aU express thoir regrets that the manufacturers would not accept their fair propositions, but state that they are as able, financially and otherwise, 'to carry on as active warfare as tho stove manufac turers. , Cardinal Manning' on the ICnighta. London, April 29. Cardinal Manning has written a special article with rogar J to the Knights of Labor, which will appear Inthe issue of The Tablet on Saturday next Car dinal Manning says: "Unless the rights of labor can be denied the liberty of organiza tion to protect these rights an 1 the fread :n founded on them cannot be denied. Toward the end of the last oontury the doctrines of political economy under tho plea of free con tract broke up the old relatio u bjevan tu employer uud employe, arid the conflict b--tween capital and latnr became perpjtual. Tho power of capital in all but irrefutable, for the poor must labor for the bread of life; hunger lays tho nectxsity upon them, for tin sake of their homes and themselves. When the law ceased to intervene, organizations for mutual defense straightway arose. Tho Knights of Labor and tho British traduj nnions represented the rights of labor and the rights of association for iti defense. A conflict of capital and labor is not unequal. The freedom of contract whereon political economy glorifies itself hardly exists. It is surely their church's office to protect the poor and to protect labor, which has built up the human commonwealth." At Philadelphia. FniLADELriilA, April JJtf. Last night the Stovo Holders' union of this city at a mooting adopted resolutions denouncing what they term the coercive measures adopted by thoik employers in trying to force them to use the Bt Louis patterns. There were bo f urthor strikes in this locality yesterday, and no further trouble is anticipated. ' The general executlvo board of the Knighta of Labor met in this city for the purnosa of taking somo action for the prevention of, lurther trouble between employers and em ployes on account of, the objectlonal Sb Louis patterns None -of those present at the meeting would say what action, had beorj taken, but.lt is said that the plans fpr bridg ing about a settlement tf the present)" trouble among the stove molders woro thoroughly discussed, but ho satisfactory conclusion was reached.

In the house yesterday Mr. Welch, member for Prince Edward Island, in tho course of debato told the government that unless tho promises made by tho union of provinces be main tained to tho very letter his province would withdraw from the confederation. Ho 'did not threaten secession, but simply poiuted out what was the sure outcome of tho feel ing of unrest now prevailing there. He said tho confederation was a curse to Prince Ed ward Island and a sham genorally. The province, if independent of the confederacy, would be one of the most prosperous com munities in Canada, if not in tho world. Mining Operations Suspended. Philadelphia, April 29.

Th Surplus Iterenne Not as Dangerous as Hat Boen Ileportsd -Tb War and Navy Department Watohlaz England's Gun Making Experiments Capital Notes. Washington, April 29. Thor really does not seem to bo much foundation for all the "extra session" talk that is again being in dulged in. The only reason that tbore could be 'for calling an extra session would be to gat an early reduction of tho surplus revenue, which a good many people thipk is going to bo piled up mountain high by the time congress moots again. Wo are now within sixty days of the closo of the fiscal year, and there are yet practi cally $20,000,000. of the 3 per cent bonds out that may bo called at any time. Tho accu mulations of surplus are now going on at tho rate of about $10,000,000 a mouth. From July 1 to the date of the meeting of congress is five mouths. The accumulations of sur plus at the ordinary rate by that tlmo would be about $50,000,000. Tho treasury depart ment, however, are required to buy, during the next fiscal year, $44,000,01)0 of bonds for tho sinking fund. Thoso, at the rate of pre mium which it must pay, will cost about an even $50,000,000. So it docs not seem proba ble that tho date for the regular meeting of congress will find tho treasury with any ac cumulation of surplus. Of course it may take congress some timo to devise a satis factory plan for reducing the surplus, but even giving it threo months to do this and it can do bo if it desires In less than that timo the accumulations need not bo more than. $25,000,003 or $30,000,000; all of which could too Immediately put Into circulation, if needed, by tho purchase of bonds in the open market Big Gnns and Heavy Armored Vessels. Washington, April 29. The war and ' navy department people have been watching tho recent experiments in big guris in Eng land with n good deal of interest Fast as tho art of iron ship building progresses tho art of destruction keeps fairly ahead of it England's war ships have Iron armor two feet thick, backed by two feet more of teak wood. Yet tho cannons that uj,vo beon re cently tested will put a ball twice as largo as a man's head through this four feet of iron and 'wood as though it were made of green cheese. The cannon which does this work weighs HO tons, and with its curriago weighs over 20J tons. It is forty-four feet long, and carries a ball which weighs 2,500 pounds, or as much as twenty average men. It can carry this ball, it is said, nearly ten miles. It takes almost a thousand pounds of powder, half a wagon load, to flro tho gun once. The gun is twice as long as the width of tho average residence in tho average city. The "boro," or hole through which tho ball is fired, is sixteen and a half Inches in diame ter, or big enough for a man to crawl into. It is' capable, it is claimed, of aanding a 2,500 pound boll through three feet of solid iron armor. . Social Gossip. Washington, April 29. The loading gos sip in social circles is the rumored engage ment of Sir Lionel Sackvllle West, and Miss Mattie Mitchell, of Oregon, and further in terest to tho story lies iu the fact that the marriago may be consummated abroad. Miss Mitcholl sails for England May 7, and Sir Lionel joins his daughters abroad in June. So many of the foreign ministers here have had American wives that tho prospect of a lady so generally admired as Miss Mitchell taking a leading position in the diplomatic circle, is without doubt tho most interesting bit of gossip heard in Washington for mauy a day. The Misses West left this morning for Now York, whence thoy sail for England Saturday. Entertained at the King's Palace. Washington, April 29. A report by the United States minister at Athens referring to tho recent departure of tho Pensacola, flacshiD'of Rear Admiral Franklin, savs that ho cannot commend too highly the con- duct and bearing of both officers and men, Their departure was much regretted by the Americans, as well as tho people of Athens, Before loaving, the ship was visited by tho king and royal family, who woro dined and entertained on board, and members of thu cabinet, foreign ministers nnd ochor dis tinguished porsons.

Bread Cast Upon the Water Brings a New Yorker S0,OO0. New York, April 29. A remarkablo pe culiar story with more than ordinary tinge of romanco came to light yesterday, when CoL Granger, a well known down-town business man, was notified that he had been left $50,000 by a former Cincinnatlan, Mr. Lemuel Stockbridge. Mr. Stockbridgo was a cotton speculator, and resided in the Queon City when the late war broke out He had occasion to visit Louisiana on a purchasing tour, and took his invalid wlfo with him. Whllo hi tho Rod river district, ho was in closed by the Federal linos and found it im possible to proceed. His wife "grew vory ill and her husband in his frantlo ondeavors to cross tho lines came in contact with Mr. Granger, who- was at that time on aide-do-,camp on tho staff of Gen. Ullmnn. Mr. Granger took pity on tho invnlld and her husband, nnd furnished them with pass ports. Shortly afterward Mr. Granger was promoted for gallant sorvico, aad obtained a loavo of absence. Accompiuilod by Ids wlfo ho took tho steamer at New Orleans, and was mucjf surprised to find Mr, and Mrs. Stock bridge among his follow-passeners. Old friendships wore renewed. While passing through Louisiana tho Confederate-sharpshooters fired on the steamer, and Mrs. Stock bridgo aguln became violently ill. Tho Grangers wero again friends in needs, and when tho families parted at Cincinnati they woro steadfast friends. Strangely enough, however, tho Grangers never saw their strangely-found acquaint ances again. Mr. Stockbridgo amulsed a fortune of $3,000,000 and returned to his birthplace Edinburgh, Scotland where he died in 1384. He never forgot his benefac tors, however, and in his will bequeathed tho sum of $50,000 to Col. Granger. A firm of Scotch lawyers have, after a year and a half, definitely identified CoL Granger, and the money will bu paid in a short timo. AVlfeat I'rospecU. Toledo, O., April 29.
