Men and Women Who Live in Continual Anticipation of Disaster A Long list of, Forebodings An Ancient Story of 'Welsh Legend. There is an ancient weather tradition about tbe month of March borrowing certain days from April, wnich she pays back, not in the same weather that she borrotvs, but in one of her own glorious gales, at a later date. and this is perhajs the most poetical expres sion of the borrowing of trouble that we have. Those who borrow trouble, however, are seldom in the habit of paying it back with the scrupulosity of the month of March in the tradition; they keep it for themselves, they roll it over and let it gather accretion, they make much of it. and they grow so weary with the weight of it that when real trouble comes there is no strength to bear that, and the nervous powers fail at the time when they nre most needed. Is there to be that most festive of all festi vals in the family, a wedilinfr, the trouble borrower is sure that the bride is a lamb led to the slaughter, or that tho bridegroom it now to be lost forever to trie family in being adopted into the new wife's family, and that Secretary Whitney Not Borrow ing Any Anxiety Df CASE OF WAS WITH ENGLAND.

To fill the vaults of the ir-asury with an idle surplus for which tbe gover,,aeot hns no legitimate use, and to thereby deprive the people of currency needed for tbeir business and daily wants, and to create a powerful and dangerous stimulus to extravagance and corruption in the expenditures of the government, seems to me to be a policy at variance with every sound principle of gTjrnment and of political economy." Altogether. Mr. Thurman's letter, brief as it is, is replete with sound democracy and sound Be use. FOR DEMOCRATS. A Chant to AHNlHt in the Campaign W hile Receiving Perional Benefit. From the Cleveland Plaindea'er. Tbe democratic national committee is providing for the necessary expenses of the campaign by appealing directly to the people for contributions. Everyone knows that the republicans look, and not in vain, to the wealthy corporations, which are protected by an excessive tar iff, for the "sinews of war" with which to fight down any attempt to lessen the bur dens of consumers. In todny's Plain dealer the proprietors of the New York Graphic make an announcement that should be read by every person desir ing the election of Cleveland and Thurman. The Graphic Publishing company issues two democratic news papersthe Daily Graphic and the Weekly Graphic, They are recognized throughout the United S-ates as most loval and consistent supporters of the democratic pnrry. Both papers are stanch supporters of the national and s'ite amit'in'rations. The Daily and Weekly Graphic circulates in every stare and territory of the union. The Daily Graphic i puhltsh'd at $9 per annum, and ti.e Wefklv is publi-hed at $2 50 per annum. In view of ihe ursent need for csmnxign fuad- tbe puhli-bers of the Graphic have decided to mahe the follow- j ing offer to the democrat ic voters of the iuited States: To every subscriber of the Weekly Graphic between now and November 6 the paper will not only be mailed for one year hut one bilf the subcrififion price. $1 25. will be imme diately sent to the national democratic conmi'fee, and acknowledged by it. Tne Weekly Graphic is not only one of the begi family newsi-apers in the coun try, but is handsomely illustrated, em ploy me an ahle stuff of artists, among whom is Mr Tbnmis Nasi, the famous cartoonist. It i unsurpassed as a literary jnii-nal The regular subscription price of $2 .V) per annum is lower than that of any weekly publication having its merits; so low, in fact, thai it enjoys an immense circulation among people of moderate means mho find in the Graphic Ihe same fear ure that are given in the expensive mngtztneg besides nil those features which tro to make up a live newspaper. It is expected that the Weekly Graphic will secure ,t least MO.Oftfl new sub scribers, within the next thirty days, and if that result is rearned rhe democratic fund wilt be bene tiled to tbe amount of $125 00(1 This is certainly a plan that will re ceive the endorsement of every democrat. HutiBcriptinng should be sent to tbe Ame.ican Graphic Cnmpany, 39 and 41 Park Place, New York. nobody knows where they will all be a year from that day Or vise the trout do borrower is sure that the church w-i) be cold and they will get their deaths, or the dress will never come from the dressmakers in time, or, with the lover's weil knovni dilatory character, he will be sure to t into at his own wedding. Not even a funeral saiislie this trouble bor roweran occasion when one might feel as if there were already on the spot trouble and to spare; it certainly could not be expected that anv one could bt late at ones own funeral. in spite of tho feeling of tho heirs f rich men w.io persist in living; yet there as we: as elsewhere the borrower will be sure to find reason to antic; :ate disaster. At the christening, azaui, it is the borrower who, if not the bad fairy of evil gifts in per son, is the one who ses that fairy coming, never hy any possibility the bright fairy, the erood fairy; and a child does not imdergo teething in the family where tho borrower makes a home, for which, from the first tooth to the last, tmubio is not to be ex tracted. An urchin cannot bo sent to school from that family when the borrower does not foresee an overtaxed brain and nervous disease, and it cannot stay away from school where there is not at once forecast of dunce. In business matters it is as bad : this debtor is not going to pay, that creditor is going to be inexorabla In ail the concerns of life, in short, the borrower it. dm whig on the future always a bankrupt future in"everythini but sorrow; and evt-n when it comes death, the borrower illustrates this life with the lurid light of tin- il-um-sof tho bottomless pit, although more often concerned in that light for others thtiu for one's self, it may be said. This borrower of ours extends operations even into the out-.T affairs of nature. There is never a suns hi nv, balmy day of south winds but it is a weather breeder, and the borrower sees no sun today for the cloud and storm of to-morrow. Are 'he first buds early, tbe bluebirds here, and all things promising a cenial sprint: Then it is untimly weather, and the premature buds will ail be nipped by the frosts to come, and there will tie no fruit. On the other hand, has tho bad weather held its own till late, knowing apparently, with that strange intelligence of the elements, that everything will come on in the stronger and longer sunshine with about the same ceieritv as if it had not had its own freer and lineerins plav, the great law of compensa tions acting with inanimate as with all other of the departments of nature! Why, then the summer is never going to be long enough to ripen anything, and if there should not be a real famine in consequence, yet prices will put food out of the reach of the poor, and the balance of trade between the continents will be disturbed, and there will be a change In tbe rate of discount of the Bank of Eng land. Nobody is made so uncomfortable bv all this borrowing of trouble as the borrower himself, although, of course, everybody In the region is disturbed and vexed by tho habit. It is a habit that takes cn serious freaks sometimes. If I die," said a woman of this sort just before breathing her last, forgive her, but if I get weil I mean to have a reckoning with her,' wnicn seems nice draft for trouble on futurity worthy of an altogether unique borrower. There is, too, an ancient story of Welsh legend which has always seemed to us a case in point, a grandiose case, where the trouble was anticipated, borrowed and received on gigantic scale which woud open the eyes the common household trouble borrower with amazement and with chagrin, too, on account of the feeble onportumties of todav. "There wero two kings formerly in Brit ain," the legend says, "named Xynniaw and Peibiaw. As these two ranged the fields one starlight night, 'See,' said Nynniaw (who at this point seems somethingof a poet), 'what a beautiful and extensive field I possess!' 'Where is it? said Peibiaw. 'The whole firmament,1 said Nynniaw, 'far as vision can extend.' 'And dost thou see,' said Peibiaw, what countless herds and flocks of cattle and sheep I have depasturing thy field P 'Where are tbeyf said Nynniaw. 4 v by, the whole host of stars which thou 6ees' said Peibiaw, 'and each of golden effulgence, with the moon for their shepherdess to superintend their wanderings.' 'They shall not graze in my pasture,' said Nynniaw (who now appears to have been fitly named). 'They shall,' said Peibiaw. 'They shall not,' said one; 'They shall,' said the other, repeatodly, bandying contradiction, until at last it arose to wild contention between them, and from conten tion )t came to furious war, until the armies and subjt.'Ctj of both were neariy annihilated in the desolation." Harper's Bazar. arranged for that several years ago. Mr. Wentworth's wedth is hard to esti mate, because of bis proverbial closeness of mouth regarding money affairs. Oid-timers who know much of his property and had watched him building it, lay he leave at least 14,000,000 or $5,000,000, and possibly twice that much.

New York, Oct. 17. The Sun's Washing ton correspondent sends the sollowing inter view which he has had with Secretary Whitney. wIn the first place, said the secretary, em phatically, "there will be no conflict between tbe United States and Great Britain. In all the discussions over the Canadian question a most vital and salient poiat has been ignored. Our position is right. It has onca been sub stantially admitted by the British government." "What do you mean by that?" "I mean ju-t what I say. In 1870 and 1S71 the Canadians did the precise thing to our fishermen that they have done recently. Ths reciprocity treaty having expired, our fish ermen were denied commercial privileges in Canadian ports. Oen. Grant, in bis annual message of ls7tt, called the attention of con gress to it, and asked for the same grant of retaliatory power that President Cleveland lately requested, and within three or four months the foreign onVe at Loudon notified the Canadians that the view taken by them of tbe treaty of It SI was 'an extreme view' 1 remember this expression in the dispatch and that the point rniht be conceded to the United States, lou wilt find that this an accurate statement of their position at that t me. Of course 1 think we are right, but what I mean to say is that Great Britain is on record as saying that we are, or such I consider the effect of a statement that the Canadian position is an extreme one that should be given tip. there are other things to bo said on that matter, but 1 can not speak for publication on the fisheries controversy. I will say, how ever, that i do not think it is probable that Great Britain would go to war for a poai tu n ouee characterized by her in this man ner. "But what do yon say as to the resuit of an farmed couttictf wWil, let me be," said the secretary, slowly. He leaned forward and belabored the burning log with the poker, as bethought the matter over. Then be said, as he Btraightened up in his chair: "I suppose any one will admit that we would easily win if such a conflict were carried out on land. We are H),000,OUO people, wbile Great Britain and her British American colonies are only 45,(100,000. "It is evident," continued the secretary , "that tbe British could not. make a conquest of the United States, and that tbe final re sult of any war would end in the annexa tion of Canada to the United States. Brit ish naval supremacy and tbe geographical characteristics of the coasts of Great Britain preclude any idea of invasion and conquest by the United States. The trans Atlantic transportation of military forces would be limited to British reinforcements of tbe garrisons in her American colonies. Hostile operations on tbe offensive would be carried on by the navy exclusively, and these would be confined to attempts to occupy har bors and ports, which might be compelled to pay contributions, and to a blockade of the coast Attempts to capture the United States seaports or to blockade her coast can not be successful, except to a limited extent upon the first outbreak of hostuitie. Gen. New ton, late chief of engineers, United States army, says in his annual report: 'For tbe first time in the development of modern art of war the engineer has solved with mathe mathical certainty the problem of closing harbors and rivers against hostile ships, so that the sole question in every case would be whether the importance of the place would justify the cost.' "If," the secretary continued, "von look at any dictionary of statistics yon will find tbat our national wealth is twice theirs, and all of our force is on the ground. She would be obliged to tight all land battles over here, where her colonirS are." But wouidnt Great Britain's naval strength be of great use to her on tbe St. Lawrence and in the great lakesr "No, not of the slightest Her only to the great lakes is through canals, and tbe locks would be blown up by ns within week after war had been declared. 1 talked with Gen. Sheridan on this subject a year or more ago, and he made special investiga tion and got all the necessary data; and what I have said is what he said to me after investigating the matter. These canals only take small boats they would be of no great consequence if they should get through bnt ws should he able to bold and destroy tbe line of access to the great takes without doubt. Great Britain has a large army, to be sure, but most of it is needed else where than in Canada. Concern ing a naval conflict, you understand, I sup pose, tbat Great Britain could make no con quest of territory by her naval power. REPORTS FROM THE TERRITORIES. Dakota's Population Increased 63,346 Idaho and New Mexico. Washington City, Oct 17. L. KL Church, governor of Dakota, in his annual report to the secretary of tbe interior, notes that the increase of tbe population of the territory during the past year wasH2,344, and that the total population is 640,823. Two and one-half million acres of land were new ly filed on and purchased for settlement dur ing the same period. Farming is stated to be the industry of tbe territory, and wheat the chief crop grown, but the production of tin promises good results. The governor re news bis recommendation favoring the ad mission of Dakota as a state to tbe Union. Tbe governor of Idaho territory, Edward A. Stevenson, in his report, states that the estimated population is 100,000. During tbe past year about 400,000 acres of public land have been entered under the various land laws. W heat leads all the cereals in the an nual production, and stock cattle is tbe most valuable of tbe live stock. The total pro duction of gold, silver and lead is valued at H,90M3ff, of which the gold is valued at $3,- 5iJ,209 and tne silver at fci, 4S!,6.-7. The gov- emor recommends that tbe Indians in tbe territory be given their lands in severalty. and that tbe people be given tbe right to vote for president and vice president of tbe United States. Gen. Edmund G. Ross, of New Mexico, makes the feature of bis annual report tbe questions of the settlement of the land grant titles, water storage, and irrigation. He states that these questions take precedence over all others in importance to the develop ment and welfare of the territory. He urges the passage of the bills now pending in con gress for the settlement of the disputed land grant titles; that a selection of "(), 000 acres of tbe public lamia m tne territory be au- tborizad, upon which a loan can be based to supply tbe means to carry out a comprehen sive system of irrigation.

FIGURING OUT A DEFICIT. The New York Snn Thinks There Will Be No Surplus for 1889. New York, Oct 17. Discussing the na tional financial situation in an editorial The flun says that the revenue for tbe first quar ter of the fiscal year 1("89 amounted to only f.i7.5Jti,ir3, against U3,-fc,396 for the cor- responding period last year, and then pro ceeds as follows; "la view of this marked and significant decline of nearly $5,000,000 in the government's income during a single quarter, we understand that some of the longest headed authorities in the treasury are now disposed to reduce their estimate of the year's receipts by about $l3,O0il,0J0, thus brinin-; down the total from fci&vXrO.OOO to $.1iO,0tKf,0t)0. That would reduce the surplus tuis year to about $-5MO0.OO0, or only IX per cent, margin above the total of appropri ations for the year, even supposing tbat the revenue from tbe postoffiee comes up to th estimated amount, tST'WOnQ.'1 But the writer goes on then to prove that there is not so much danger of a surplus as a ffefWt. Thf article says there i a tolera bly constant ratio between the first quarter's receipt and those of the whole year, the first quarter bringing in something more than one-fourth of the year's receipts, and figures are given showing that the average of re ceipts of the first quarter is 27 per cent, of those of the year. Calculating upon this basis the total year's revenue for is fig ured at 1,000,000, and the article closes with the following: Witb the estimated postal revenue of foi.- 500,000. tbe aggregate income would amount to $41S oOO.lfcW. But the appropriation bills for the year, already signed by Cleveland or in bis hands for approval, amount to KA000.0O0. This means an actual deficit of M,(WO,000 or $4,000,0011 instead of any sur plus, however small." ADJOURNMENT HANGS F1KE. Colored Voters for Cleveland. A gTand lmrrali enlivened the neighbor hood of Democratic headquarters, when Twenty-ninth street was stirred up by the parade of the colored Cleveland and Thnrman club, of the Eleventh assembly district.

Her aim would be to get into our harbors and destroy property. But two can play at tbat game Our fast cruisers would go at ber commerce. That is what tbe co fltet would resolve itself into on our side, and here are some of tbe facta for tbiuking men: There is afloat every day in the year English commerce to tbe value of $200 000, OX). Note that this tremendous value is afloat daily. Great Britain's food supply is on tbe wataf all tbe time. We will soon have a don an cru.sers faster than any of the English iron-clads, and these cruisers would attack the British wealth afloat, which would be at the mercy of our coramrce-d stroyera." "Tbe fate of our navy, then, depends upon the cruisers "Tbe attacking cruiser has every advant age. The English, in their recent naval manoeuvres, experimented this way: A cruiser was sent out into the Irish seas to act as a commerce-destroyer. Four other cruis ers, superior in speed and force, were sent out after her, and tho regular British squad ron wa- notified to capture her. She eluded tbem all, and in fifty -four hours bad cap tured fifty-seven priies, and when tbe ficti tious war closed, after about four days, sbe was still at large and ready to operate against British commerce. This illustrates tte difficulty of suppressing fast commerce destroyers. 1 be ocean is pretty large, and to find any one on it is difficult. Twelve vessels of the Baltimore type, such as are now being built, cruising across tbe lines of commerce on the ocean, would be able to destroy more property in ninety days than the entire English navy would be able to rea?h and destroy oa our coast And, mind you, the property of Great Britain, whicb is exposed to our attack, does not con list of brawu-stone houses tbat people can get along ir. bout, but is the life of their nation their food supply, and the elements on wuicb tbe existence of tbeir business depends. We would be unable, at present, to stand up and fight their ironclads. This might affect our pride somewhat and I hone tbat this situation will not long exist but as to the rest of it, we should be beard from moat ef fectively." "LONG" JOHN WENTWORTH DEAD. A Man Who Knew Chimso for Hair a Cen tury Joins the Majority. CHICAGO. Oct 17. Hon. John Wentworth, one of Chicago's oldest and most conspicuous citizens, who has been confined to n room fu the Sherman house for some time by itl txtm, died yesterday morning. Mr. Went worth "Long John," as he was wont to be called, on account of bis great sise was 73 years of age and has been a resident of Chi cago for fifty-two years. He represented this district incongrew between 1844 and 1350 and again in 1W5-7. He was twice elected mayor of the city, in 1857 and 1W50. 1 Mr. Wentworth started and for many years published and edited Tbe Daily Democrat, which was one of Chicago's first daily news papers, and wbs absorbed by The Tribune in 1801. The disease of which Mr. Wentworth died was progressive paralysis, or a failure of the nervous forces. It is a disease generally at tendant upon old age, and is entirely pain less. He was first attacked by it four or fiv months ago, and has since been growing gradually worse. For about thirty -two hours prior to his death he lay without a move ment, with bis eyes closed. There were pres ent at the time his daughter, Miss Roxani Wentworth; his brother, Samuel H. Went worth; his sister, Mrs. Mary F. Porter, and bis nephew, Mr. Moses J. Wentworth. His brother,CoL Joseph Wentworth.and wife are expected to arrive from Concord, M. H.

Washington City, Oct 17. The senate yesterday put in the time talking tariff, Cockrell nrning with a speech against the senate bill, in which be quoted speeches of Allison and N ilson of Iowa in opposition to high protection. Cockrell filed a letter from tbe commissioner of internal revenue which said the removal of the duty on alcobol used in the arts would lead to extensive frauds, to which Allison replied tbat England and Ger many bad not found it that way. Spooner spoke next, giving reports from English sources in opposition to free trade After a brief executive session tbe senate adjourned. The house agreed to the bill authorizing a bridge across the Mississiopi at LaCrosse, Wis. An appropriation for the printing of 50, 000 copies of the report of the bureau of animal industry was passed. Tbe Oates ad journment resolution came up, and Oates offered an amendment making the date Oct. 1H. The house refused to consider it and postponed it for the day. An attempt to call up tbe bill to settle the accounts of laborers under the eight-hour law was defeated. Oates sail that he bad failed in bis effort to get tbe house to ndjourn, and be would like to adjourn himself. He asked leave of ab sence for the remainder of tbe session, which was granted, as was also a similar request of j Lanham of Texas. Tbe house then, at 1:10, j adjourned. !

The first game of tbe world's championship series between the New Yorks and St Louis Browns was played yesterday, and resulted in a victory for the League champions, alter a close and exciting game. Keefe and King were the pitchers, and both did finely. The fielding was also good, and tbe game was only won by the su perior base running of the New Yorks. Both teams were blanked in the first inning. In tbe second, for New York hits by Connor and Ward, a wild pitch and a long fly to cen ter by Slattery scored New York's first run. Tbe Browns tied tbe score in tbe first half of the third on Latham's base on balls, his steal of second, and O'Neil's hit In the last half of the third New York made the last and winning run. Tiernan got bis base 0,1 balls and immediately made a break for second. Boyle threw low and hard to catch him, and the ball passed both Rob inson and Lyons and, Tiernan crossed the plate.

Flat Cars leaded with Hungarian Labor- Smashed and the Human Freight Killed and Feai fully Mancled One Crushed Into Pieces Narrow Escape of a Passen ger Vessel A Miner Buried Alive In jured in a Tunnel Boiler Explosion Foreign Lit suiters, Wilkksbarre, Pa., Oct 17. A terrible accident on the Lehigh Valley road yester day was caused by a failure of those in charge of a construction train to flag the ap proa bing train. A freight train was run ning on telegraph orders to make a siding and allow the passenger train to pass. In this case the rules require conductors of con struction trains to guard both ends of their train. Besides twenty-six Hungarians in jured tbe list includes H. Hawk, conductor; F. H. reck, engineer, and Charles rry, fire man, of the freight train. It is believed tbat Peck and Fry will die. A freight nrakeman wits killed E. W. Guilder, of Nescopeck. He was struck by the smoke stack and badly manglxd. Tbe other dead are George Gubaugh, Andrew Timms, Paul Verbo, Mike Haness, Jake Sickouse and William Putni. One of the dead was so frightfully dismembered and cut to pieces that bis remains were picked up and put in a tool-box. There is fear tbat several of the wounded will die, because they were so long without medical attendance and bled so frMy. Tbe wreck was a fearful one. Three of the flat-cars, on all of which were many la borers, were piled upon each other and badly broken, and on them the slaughter was ter rible. The unfortunate Hungarians were crashed and mangled under the splintered beams in a most horrible manner. Tbeir shrieks and groans of anguish are described as most heart-rending.

The New Carmen Beaten, and the Police Arrive Just in Time to Catch Nobody Warlike Talk Still Going on and Every thing Uncertain Powderly's Opinion of Barry Re Never Will Be Missed Braka- Men in Convention. Chicago. Oct 17. There was a lively riot last night about6:3o o'clock at North Halsted and rsorth avenue. Four cars, tbe first three manned by new men, were following each other closely down Halsted street At the corner of North avenue tbey were topped by a barricade of heavy wagons, ash boxes, beer kegs, sewer pipes and stones. The street was crowded with people returning from work, and in a moment the cars were sur rounded by a howling, jeering mob. Stones crashed through the windows of the cars, and tbe passengers quickly deserted tbe cars and joined those in the street The force of eight police who were escorting tbe cars were unable to do anything with the mob, and tbe new men on tbe first three cai s were roughly handled. The crowd then turned tbeir attention to tbe fourth car, when the driver and conductor called out tbat they were union men. 41 You're all right then," howled the crowd, and in a moment the car was dragged from the track and around tbe obstructions by a score of willing hands, and sent on its way unmolested. In the meantime the police had sent for reinforcements, and, upon their arrival, tbe streets were quickly cleared. The new men, however, refused to resume tbeir positions on the cars, which were left stand ing on the street for an hour. Several men were clubbed by tbe police in restoring or der, but only two arrests were made, tbe prisoners being small boys wbo were trying to roll a stone on to tne track. It only needed this incident to show that the strike on the north side is far from be ing satisfactorily settled. Otherwise the day passed without trouble, though there were mutterings of a probable storm all along the lines among the old men. Tbe Garfield avenue cars were run all day and into the nizht for the first time since the strike bv the new men, there being po licemen on each car, and a new departure was also taken in tbe grip cars, those run ning down Wells street being manned by new men. This further angered the old hands, wbo were laid off to make the vacant places, but no disorder occurred. The sec ond grip sent out ran into an open switch at Wells and Illinois and broke tbe grip. It was asserted that the switch was opened maliciously. Another car about 11 a. m. manned by a new gripman, in going through tbe tunnel got into difficulty that stopped tbe cable until night Tne new man did not loosen his grip going down the grade and the slack of tbe cable not being tnken up by the counter weight at tbe engii: house, coiled round the grip and tbe cable broke. The old hands who bad their cars stopped in the tun nel took pains to remind the passengers wbo bad to walk tbe remainder of the way to tbe busins center four or bve blocks that the "scabs" did it. An exactly similar accident o"Curred more than two months ajro, whicb the results came near being serious, a car being overturned and the passengers tumbled out promiscuously, several of tbem carrying borne Itruises as tbeir share of the experience. Attorney Furthman, who is in the emplov of the company, whe-i asked why tbe old Wells street nin had been replaced by new men, replied: "New men would have run tbe Weils street cars yesterday had we been given sufficient police protection. The old men may object, l-ut they have no right to do so, as wears acting strictly in accord ancewitb our agreement of Sunday, as the short-band notes of the conference will show, At that conference Mr. Yerkes told tbe men he would under no cin-um stances discharge th men who bad com to his assistance when he was in trouble. '1 have work for 5S8 steady men,' be said, UJ0 of whom 1 have al ready hired, and wbo will lie given steady work. This leaves steady work for 3SU men. There are, however, Sib of you, and in or der that all of you may have work the length of time each of 3v men would work must be shortened in order to accommodate the exira 3X1 old men.'" "Now, thin," continued Mr. Furtbmann, "simply means that the work of 3sS men is to be divided among .3S men. In regard to the 200 new men now hired, a list of them has been made and is now in the mayor's hands. Whenever one of tbe new men leaves of bis own acvord and unmolested, his place is to be filled by an old man; but if he leaves Icnupe he has been induced either by pur chase or intimidation, his place will be filled by another new man. We intend, you see, to offer no premium on intimidation, so that the old men will gain nothing by driving tbe new men away. If this doesn't suit them and they strike. I can't help it, that's all." All the talk yesterday was of a decidedly warlike tone, and although there is some dif ference in opinion among the west side men to whether they should again strike in or der to aid the north si.lers, tbe sentiment of the latter is practically unanimous that. whether tbe new men are retained or not all tbe old men must be takm back, even if it takes another strike to do it The commit tee which was appointed to call upon Presi dent Yerkes failed, for some reason, to visit tbat gentleman, but an all-night nieetmg in session last mgnt.
