The Daily Argus. JOHN W POTTER. Tuesday, December 14, 1886. INDUSTRIAL TOPICS. Latent from the Hmy rM r Labor -The Knichtn Trades 1'niontnta -IndaMrtal in41tIon mmi rrHpeti The World la 4'oIubb. Manufacturers re generally pleased at tlie encimrafiiDH prospects tor a higher ranee ot puces to all kinds ot uiiinurac lured products. The? feel that the future is bright and tliii! their capacity will be kept busy for a year to come. Id some sections of the country mills and facto ries are sold from six to twelve months ahead already. In many others the pros- peels are so favorable that manufacturers are not prcferg to book orders at the present time. This encouraging condition of thiols is having a reviving effect upon agricil lural, cotton growing, petroleum inter ests and all of the great interests of the country. Labor mil be in demand in every iudustry, and it is probable tout iluriim the preseut winter employers and employes will enter icto satisfactory arrangements by which strikes will either be averted or promptly and satis factorily settled when they do occur. The industrial reports from all sections of the country this week are very en curaing. The mills are oversold. Immense mining contracts are being placed for winter and spring. Several liundred freight cars and a half hundred locomotives have been ordered within a few days. The wool markets are strong. The tobacco markets are active. The dry goods manufacturers are all busy The real estate operators and speeulator. are dmog good business and in any and every direction we look we find much to encourage. The highest authorities in our industries say that our manufacturing capacity will be increased more during the year th in it was during the past two years, that prices will be uitfher, de mand more regular aud markets will increase faster than they ever have be fore In New Yoik the furniture workers have secured advances of wages, and are crowded with work nine hours a day. The carpenters are trying to stop out-of-town competition of wood butchers. The brass workers have several strikes in New York. The workmen in the shirt and collar industries will hold a convention next Sunday to take action against con vict labor, and to drive out those weli to do people who merely work for the sake of a little pocket change The clothing cutters are endeavoring to secure labor co operation to break up oae or two leading clothing houses, which have branches in several other cilies. The clothing cutters' national convention comes oil in Cincinnati on Tuesday. Among some of the most successful technics1 institutions in this country aie thelndustrial College at Worcester.Mass ; the Stevens Institute at Hoboken, X.

Tuesc schools have a capital ranging from SliKi.Owi to $i.25'', (II ii i. The forthcoming report of the bureau of labor statistics will be full of strike figures. The Waiters' Union has induced the Central Labor Union to boycott four or five places of amusement. The retail butchers have asked that union to assist them in closing shops at T o'clock. The journeymen plumbers are ratified at the turn things are likely to take after a fourteen weeks' strike. Only h-tif a dczen out of !HI broke away. Tl.eSt. Louis Sunday ('ritir is 'rat ttd." More priuters arc seeking employ ment in western cities than are wanted. Printing is dull at Louisville, Cincinnati and Baltimore. In Cincinnati a fair amount of work is being done in the various industries, but a dull sersoa is expected. Fifteen thousand miners in the bitum inous coal fields have asked for an increase id wages within a wee?k. Or ganization is pretty thorough throughout the west, but for ail that the strikes seem to be made without much regard to it. Longshoremen's Union No. 2, in lirookiyn, numbering 1.401), will with draw from district assembly No. 48 District Assembly No. 51 will hnld a ball at the academy of music at Newark. December i:t. The moulders are endea voring to form a national union under the Knights. Master Workman Bailey announces that the loDg-soughNfor ob ject of uniting miners under a centra! government wiibin the Knights of Labor has been accomplished. The next thing to do is to descipline the members into obedience. The Catholic Knights in Canada pro pose to appeal directly to Home if the pending decision g'les against them. Ia that event a delegation of two or three of the ablest Knights will probably go to Rome and present the case in whatever way the rules of the church will permit The board of trade of Louisville. Kv . is trying to induce manufacturers ti locate there by suowiu:; them that coa can be had at from $1.50 to S2 per ton It has a reputation as a ma mufpcturing centre, for clothing, cement and wbissy. The tcdal cut of lumber at Minneap olis this year is fifty feet less than last year, which is the smallest cut since 1861. The lumber supplies have declined at that point id the ratio of twenty-six to seventeen. The manufacturing interests in the south profess to see a gieal deal of im provement near at hand in manufactur ing. The existing and impending rail road construction is creating an active demand for all kinds of building and railway material, and the budding of houses and shops is helping along the general activity. The lumber men are talking about a new hand saw mill wuicb beats everything else in its line. A good many paoers are wis' ly recom mending that the present favorable op portunity be utilized by employers and workingmen for permanently establish ing friendly relations for the future reg ulation of wages. Both workmen and employers lire happy and contented ana each side now recognizes the necessity of pursuing a course that will avoid gtnkes or lockouts. It has been shown that while arbritation possesses many advan t?iges, it is after all defective, because on one side it deprives employers of as full a share of profits as they desire, and. on the other hand, the principle which labor seeks to assert and establish is entirely ignored. Labor is looking in the direc tion ot self-employment, but does not know how to accomplish it. A Clear Comolenon. How caii you expect aclear complexion when the blood is full of impurities and the stomach clogged? The blood be comes impure because the liver does not act properly and work of the poison from the system, and the certain results are blotches, pimples and eruptions. Purify the blood with Simmons liver regulator, and regulate the liver, stomach and bowels, and then the skin will become clear. A TIECE OF BACKBONE REMOVED I ROM A LIVE MN BY A SKILLFUL SURGEON. Completely Taralyced Before tlie Opera tion, but Now Able to Walk The Sur gvoo Cuts Out Three Indie of the Itone with a B an. raer aud Chisel Wlthoa t Touching the Spinal Cord. Cincinnati, Dc 14. One of the raresi and most dangercus operations in the wh-Av set pe of surgery has lately been performed at tLe Cincinnati hospital. It consisted ii pjnioviiip alnmt three inches of the back bout aii'J exposing the spinal cord. The patient was a young colored man about 21 jeai's ol aj;p. When first admitted to the lio-.pita he was suffering from a terrible diseast whi'.-h had broken out over the head, neck, and Italic in the form of largo nlna'sans, tin chief one of which w:is a Knit the middle ot the back, and had rates away the backUnv to a considerable titent The poor fellow could not lie in a re cumbnit poiture nor on his side n consequence of the cxtrema pain at tending sufh a position, and was com pelled to tie att the while on his face. Slowly he had lost the power of motion ami of S'iiution in his legs, so that he was com pieteiy paralyzed from the body down, ll was decide 1 that his oaly chance of life lay in an o;eration for the removal of a xu't o. tb? backbone so as to stop the process of de cay. He was then turned on bis face and the plucky surgeon made an incision right down on the spine. A 1 arge quantity of pu was revealed, and the cavity was spongen out carefully in ord r to see just w here tht knife was going. in this region, where one slip of the knife or one false move would have been fatal U the patient, the surgeon with a chisel ani hammer went down on the bone uut I ht cut out alJ that which was in any av affected, never touching the spinal cord. There lay the white, shining cord at the bottom of the wound in ail it pnstm biauty, and not a scratch marred i's surface. The operator smiled with coni plaiaai.ee wlteu he saw how nicety h had ac tum: 1isIk1 his purpose He had removed the cm of the suppcration; hence the ab scess would disaup mr. He had also removed the cause of the paralysis, atii felt assured jj ;wjr woul 1 now returnto the piralyzed icy; awl, more than all, he knew time w-him accomplish the filling up of the place w here the Kine had formerly been. The patient re covered from the ether aud was place ! in bed on his fnce. In three days motion re turned to the legs, and he was able to move his feet the first time in nearly a year. About the same time sensation began te return in the limbs In about three weeks h? could bear some weight on his legs, and at the same time be assumed the position on lib breast and knees which he has kept evei since. He at length became strong enough tosraud. with assistance, and take a step or two. lie is now able to walk to the end of the ward and sit down in a chair with com fort Of course his back is yet weak, and probably never will regain its former power, but be will be a useful man. The wound has gradually closed up, leaving on!" a sligtit ar, an i causes him little or no jam Hi an;ctiie lias returned and he eat as much as a laboring man. ASPHYXIATED BY COAL GAS.

Tin mother aud daughter had retired early, it is said, leaving too sou to look after the sLoves. The cover of one of th em was fiiuud to be off, when the room was searched atid it is supposed that the young man after putting in the coal had forgotten to replace the lid. The gas had thus escaped, and all the doors and windows being tightly closed hud quickly filled the rooms. Both children were f.rnwn up. Mrs. Hoke Mill in I eon a. Peoria, Us., Dec. 14.
