Thk leaves of the pawpaw tree are em ployed by the negroes in washing linen as a substitute for soap.

The Union in its frantic hysterics over the nomination of Mr. Csblo, criticises that gentleman for not being present at the nominating convention. As the editor of that paper seemed to have been there principally to look after bis inter ests. Mr. Cable, thought, no doubt, that there was no occasion for his presence. Thk republican papers are trying to explain away the row in their camp over the defeat of Capt. Turnbull, of Hon mouth. That gentleman's friends in Warren county are considerably picqtied, and do not hesitate to say bo. The Mon mouth AtUu attributes the result to "bossism, and we think it strikes it just about right. The moat disconsolate man in the whole Eleventh congressional district, is said to be Hon. W. II. Oest. Advices from Washington are to the effect that he has been seriously troubled with in somnia since the 6th iost. A dispatch sent to him by one of his former sup porters just after Cable's nomination didn's serve to quiet his nerves, either. In speaking of the political contest in Illinois this year the Peoria Journal re marks that "a special fight is to be made upon Oest, Cannon, Hill and Payson. and in all probability some of them will be defeated." Well, neighbor, we can tell you that at least one of the above quar tette wilt be. "We have him on our list. and he never will be ." St. Loins Republic: Chairman Pbelp9, of the democratic executive committee, is confident of democratic victory in I!Ii nois. When the democrats have T.Reed, B. Harrison, Abominations Bill McKinley and Blocks of Five Dudley to drive re publicans to the democratic side, and when John Sf. Palmer is at the bead of the democratic committee of reception, it I s a very poor sort of democrat who does not feel confident of victory in Illinois this year. Gkst's office holders are now indus triouaty circulating the report that Ben T. Cable is opposed to the Flennepin canal, and ask for a definition of his Jricwaon that measure. While Mr. Ca ble has frequently expressed a desire to have the canal bill pas? congress, still it is not improper to have an expression from him on that and other matters of a public nature, and they will be fortbcom log at the proper time. With Mr. Cable we take it that it is different than with Mr. Gest. It makes very little difference what the latter gentleman's Ideas are on such questions. He never emphasizes them with sufficient force to be felt one way or the other. To bat that the Oest people are "uhak ing in their boots" over the nomination of B. T. Cable, Esq , is putting it mildly. The result of the Monmouth' convention was hardly known before the party or fans and postmaster correspondents com menced their vituperation and mud-sling' ing. Ilappily, their poisonous shafts fail to make an impression, and only stultify the men who use them. The invulnerability of the democratic nom inee's character, integrity and ability, however, apparently intensifies the splene tic disposition of these doleful harpists. The very hopelessness of their case seems to play havoc with their sense of pro priety and respect. While the Argcs sympathizes with this sorely afflicted class, it begs to inform them that their abuse of Mr. Cable will fail of its object. It is impossible to draw the attention of the public from the fact that the present republican congressman is a lament able failure, and that he has done noth ing since taking his seat in the national legislature to warrant a further support from a misrepresented constituency.

UGLY TIMES AHEAD Firemen on the Central Struck , Work at Midnight. . k TIE-UP ON THEEE MORE LUTES. Ilia Lake Shore, Michigan Central, and Michigan Southern Involved The Trouble to Keach from Ootliam to Chl- Seago Defiant Spirit of the Strikers at Syracuse Thev Resist the Militia and Swear That Trains Shall Not Move Prospects for ltloodshed First Class. New York. Aug. 11. Everything in and ind around the New York Central rail way statiou was quiet and orderly yester- iay. Nearly all of the trains ran on sched ule time, the only ones that were not started out being the 8:40 Croton local and the Peekskill accommodation which was to start at 10:25. The railroad company elaim that they have received a number of applications for the posit ious vacated by the strikers and that a large number of the places have already been filled by ex perienced railroad men. The Company's Position Stated. Vice President Webb has given out the following circular to the press: "The po sition of the company is this: We will se lect our own men and we do not propose that they shall be designated by the Knights of Labor or its committees. When men are dismissed we shall iet rid of the inefficient, the most vicious and those least in accord with our interests. When promotions are to le made we will liot be bound by the seniority rules pro mulgated by the Knights of Labor. A due consideration will always be given to length of service, but the first and most Important rule wilt be the qualifications of the men for the place. If our men have grievances the proper officers will be will- log to grant hearings and see that consid eration is .given, but we will not allow outsiders to intervene or interfere between the employer and employe. No Olijecllou to Labor t'nloiis. Tor this reason alone I refused to al low Mr. Holland to discuss any differ ences alleged to exist between the com pany and Its men, and not for the 'reason, as stated, that we object to our employes being members of labor organizations. These are my. views, and I aw satisfied that they are concurred in and approved by every official of the company, by the board of directors, and by the gentlemen who are most interested in its securities. The strike is Unadvised, cannot succeed, and we wil put it down and maintain the position we have taken." Mr. Hol land was not at the hotel, and his views of the circular could not be learned. Mr. Webb also sent out a statement of the movement of trains yesterday, showing that most of the outbound trains left ou time. The Firemen Ordered Out. J. J. Holland and Secretary Hayes, of the executive board of the Knights of La bor, have ordered all the firemen on the Vanderbilt lines to quit work. The strik era spent yesterday hoi ding meetings and encouraging each other to hold out, while pickets watched all railway stations to discourage any persons arriving from abroad from taking service on the Cen tral. During the day Secretary Hayes callod on Vice President Webb, bearing a letter from Father Ducey favoring arbi tration. Mr. Webb firmly declined to treat with Mr. Hayes, as he said there was nothing to arbitrate and that the company would not take back the dis charged men under any circumstances. A Had Feature of the Strike. One of the worst features of the strike will lie the lack of milk to the people of New York. Not a can of milk came into the depot Saturday morning. This will sorely affect the hospitals, orphan asy lums, hotels, restaurants, bakers, poor people aud hosts of others. Over 22,000 cans of milk, each can containing forty quarts, are received every morning at the Grand Central depot between X and 4 o'clock. Many milkmen, who heard of the strike, hurried over to the West Shore Railroad and purchased all the milk they wanted. But the agents there soon heard about the strike and raised the price of milk from fJ.38 per can to F-2, then to t-, and at last accounts were getting f6 and $7 a can for it. The Latest Reports aud Rumors. It was rumored last night that a tie-up on the JSaltlmore and Ohio, the Delaware. Lackawanna and Western, the Pennsylva nia, the hrie, and the Jeswey Central had taken place. At the stations of the Penn sylvania and Jersey Central roads the ru mur was denied. The train dispatchers at both stations gave assurances that if there was a tie-up they knew nothing of it. At 11 o'clock at the Grand Union hotel it was reported that the order was given for the Bremen to go out at midnight. Several of them bad already left their engines. Mr. Webb at the above hour denied all knowl edge of the firemen striking. -He said the company would move freight at St. John's park to-day. A large force of police will be on Iiaad to insure success. Actual Situation Yesterday. The only trains that were running yea terday were passenger trains. No attempt was made to move any of the 2,000 cars that were stranded in the Sixty-fifth street freight yard. This yard will have to be cleared before it will be possible to handle the freight that ia in St. John's Park and the Thirtieth street freight yard. In ad dition to the freight in the Sixty-Gftb street yard were seventy-five carloads of west-bound freight on barges at dock O Notices posted all over the yard announc ed the determination of the railroad com pany to fight the strike and promised protection to all employes who remain at work. At a conference held at 1 o'clock In Third Vice President Webb's office It was determined to begin moving the freight from the bixty-flfth street yard Ibis morning. SITUATION AT ALBANY. Militia and Plnkertons on Guard Oov emor Hill's Remarks. Albany, N. Y., Aug. 11. The situa tion here heebmea more serious every min ute, and the intense quietness which pre Tails among the men and at the railroad yards is viewed with alarm by the rail road officials. At West Albany not a man was visible, but the 8,000 cars laden with merchandise were still, and the tracks al ready beginning to rust. The yard ia guarded by Pinkerton men, who watch the oil trains and lumber piles very close' ly. Passenger trains were passing through the yard with the aid of the militia, but at oue time a struggle took place between the strikers and soldiers. A K. of L. Official View. Secretary Proutley, of the K. of L., said when asked about the progress made: 'The strike is yet in its infancy, and its extent and power, if our demands are not met, will surprise people. The men are remaining quietly away from the yard, and will avoid trouble if possible. We Ire not interfering with passenger trains, and shall not attempt to atop them, but the road must not attempt to move a pouud of freight or there will be trouble." That the railroad people are greatly alarmed is evident from the fact that 800 Pinkerton men are here, and Robert Pinkerton himself lain command. Each man is armed, and they are spread out over the tracks between Albany and West Albany. Declare It a Fljrht for Life. District Assembly 147, K. of L., com posed of various bodies, held a meeting yesterday afternoon. An address was is sued to the strikers. It reads as follows: 'District assembly 147 sympathizes with District A-serablv Si3 in tl e grave situa- that to-day confronts your district. To our minds it means either a oomplate vic tory or a total demoralizi Xina of your magnificent organisation. District As sembly 447 pledge their unwerving and unstinted support and assistance until the end. We urge you to remain cool. Let no rascally bands of Pinkert on cut-throats goad your members to any acts of vio lence. Should your membe r weaken, ac cording to the threat of Vice President Webb, you will receive no c moderation." Governor Hill Gives H la Views. Governor Hill was asked 1 tat night If he had ordered the . militia to report for service at Syracuse. He sa d that it was untrue. He had not been called upon and probably would not be. Tie sheriff of any county could call upon the militia to act in case of an emergency. Asked if he would give his views upon the strike he declined to talk, but intimated that the men would not be molest i by militia unless in case of riot. He hoped the men would obtain their rights. Going to Force Crisis. At last the road authorities are. con fronted with a big problem. All the em ployes on the Central road are ready to assist the strikers. At 4 o'clock yester day afternoon the strikers held a secret conference at which were repi esentatlves of division 830, locomotive nimen ot Al bany; 310. of Schenectady; 815, of East Al bany, and division 40, Brotherhood ot Lo comotive Engineers.. It wa determined to force the crisis, and - to-day engineers and firemen will refuse to draw trains containing anything excepfi the United States mail. No passengers of any de scription are to go out and no freight. NARROW ESCAPE FROM BLOODSHED. Syracuse Striker' Defy the Militia and Nearly AVin the Hj ht. Stkactbe. N. Y., Aug. 11. An attempt was made to move a freight train in the yards here yesterday morning under a military escort and there was a narrow es cape from bloodshed in an encounter with the strikers. The movement of the tram was resisted by the striking railroad men 1 and a cull was made for the militia's pro tection. At one time a conflict seemed imminent. Deputy Sheriff Kratz had his pistol at ene time pointing into the face of a striker and four or five of the soldiers were surrounded by about thirty strikers who pressed them into quarters so close that they could not use their bayonets. The trains were finally moved up into the yard under the state soldiery. A Good Frospect for Bloadsheed. JTaj. Auer received orders to have his entire battery under orders, and was notV fied that te of the separate companies of the state militia would report here at the earliest hour. Two companies are to come from Oswego, one from Elmira. and the Sixty-fifth regiment from Buffalo. The companies from this section of the state for the most part are in camp at Peekskill. The officers 6f the military companies have orders to char the East Syracuse yards at all hazards as soon as the companies can be massed. If necessa ry they will turn the batterry guns on the strikers. The dissati.tfled mil road men say that no trains will be rrovedif they can prevent, even if bloodshed follows. THE FIREMEN QUIT- WORK. . A Strike Also Teclded Fpon ou Three Other Lines of Road. New Yokk, Aug. 11. Jus', after midnight- this morning all the locomotive firemen, members of the Br itherhood of Ijocomotive Firemen) on the Hudson river divison of the New York Central and Hudson River railroad joined the striking Knights of Iibor who went out Friday night. This defection of firemen will, it is feared, completely block travel over the New York Central between this city and Albany, as the Brotherhood of Locomo tive Engineers are pledged not to run with any firemen except tho belonging to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Fire men. A Tie-rp to Chicago. It has been definitely decided to strike on the Lake Shore, Michigan Central and Michigati Southern to-day. It is deter mined to tie up the main line of the Cen tral all the way from New Y irk to Chi cago. As to whether the Vanderbilt lines west of Chicago will be tied up, if the strike is' not settled soon, on thf other lines of the system will be considered. On the Qui Vive at BuB ulo. Buffalo, N. Y., Aug. 11. There were few evidences of a strike on the railways In this city. Trains were promptly for warded on all roads. A body of Pinker ton men passed through during the day, while the state troops here ha e been or dered to oe m readiness for emergencies. There was an attempt at violence, how ever, at the east end, about 10 j. m.. when two men boarded a train and t -ied to pull the engineer and fireman of!'. The men resisted and their assailants fl d, pursued by policemen, who failed to catch or iden tify them. The strikers say that the trouble is only begun so far. Powderly Charges It to Gould. Sckanton-. Pa., Aug. 11. A reporter asked T. V. Powderly what he thought of the Central strike. He said it would be a big one; that Channcey M. Cepew knew all about it and was fully responsible, and that he had seen an assertion that soma of the officials ot the Central were in the Cay of Jay Gould and were anxious to ring trouble on that company, and therefore influenced the officials of the Central to make war on the workmen. A VERY MILD "GAG" FULE. Hoar Proposes a Flan to Shori en Debate In the Senate. Washington City, Aug. 11.- About the only matter of interest that broke the monotony of the senate's debate on the tariff Saturday was a very mild "gag" res olution offered by Hoar, It provides that after a "reasonable" time of debate any member can move the previous question. upon which, if seconded by a ma j irity of the senate, a vote shall tie taken w thout de bate. If carried amendments shall be voted upon in their order, but every sena tor may spealtonce for twenty minutes while this voting is proceeding. No mo tion shall be in order during this time except to adjourn or to take re cess, and they can not , be re? peated unless a speech or an t her vote shall have intervened. The taril bill was then resumed, and Vance.Turpie and .Dan iel took up nearly the whole ssion with speeches. Several attempts were made to reduce the duty on cotton tie, but all failed. In the house the only busineis of im portance transacted was the non-concur rence in the senate amendmen ;a to the Indian appropriation bill. Eidoe com plained that a doorkeeper Iiad refused bim egress from the house after a c 11 of.,-the house had been ordered, aud offered reso lutions to inquire into the mat tor, which he said the speaker was res poo dble for. With the full concurrence of th speaker the resolutions were referred to t he judic iary committee. O'DONNELL IN CREAT LUCK. The Michigan Congressman It herits Fortune In Spain.

A brother and sis ter about to marry, supposing themselves only cousins, their common mother, after fighting the proposed union for two years, finally confesses to her son that his affi anced is her daughter, born two years be fore marriage to his father, aud the young man attempts suicide.

There was little of special interest in the base ball field last week. The two great rivals for public fa vor went on the even tenor of their way, with the attendance part of the week in favor of the league, and part in favor of the Brotherhood. The fact that Mr. Spalding has gone to Europe would seem to indicate that he is somewhat weary, and needs a rest. It was reported that Buck" Kwing would cast his lot with the league next year, but the report is Unconfirmed. The Washington club of the Atlantic league is "busted," and the Sioux City, of the Western, is in a bad Way, but will play the season out with the help of certain enthusiastic base ball men.

Brand Army Men aud Their Wlwee In Danger The Vets Show Their Mettle and Keep Cool A Tangled Rudder Chain Causes the Trouble and the 'Steamer Goes Bumping- Among the Rooks, Finally Reaching Smooth Water Right Side Up with Care. Montreal, Aug. 11. Twenty-five hun dred Grand Army men with their wives and children left Chicago for Boston via Niagara falls, the St. Lawrence river and Montreal on Friday,. Most of them were from posts in cities outside of Chicago, knd many came from Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Wiscon sin. There was a very large number, too, who had split . from Posts 5 and 28 in Chi cago, one faction going by wy of New York and one taking the St. Lawrence route. They were four hours late at Niag ara Falls, which they "saw" in tweuty minutes. Storm Clouds Gathering. They got to Kingston at midnight and ate cold suppers, and at 4 o'clock Satur day morning five big steamers loaded left there to go through the rapids of tbe St, Lawrence. All the boats were packed with Grand Army men and their fami lies. Tbe Bohemian, the largest of the boats, was the last. She had between 600 and 700 passengers aboard. The long Sault rapid was passed safely and the ex cursionists began to congratulate them selves that the discomforts of the trip had ended. The entire day was very pleas antly spent, albeit that the boat was fear fully overcrowded. About 7 o'clock great thunder clouds began to gather in the west and the sky to darken. The wind freshened considerably, too, and a big storm was predicted. Commencement of the Trouble. There was yet oue series of rapids to go through, tbe Cretan, as dangerous as any on the river, and tbe captain of the Bo hemian thought he could reach there be fore darkness set in. The upper deck for ward of the boat was packed with people watching the first plunge of the steamer, when a brilliant flash of lightning ran across the steamer's bow. Then thnnder pealed and rain began to fall in sheets. The people made a rush for the cabin and shelter, and tbe steamer entered the rap ids. She rolled fearfully, and the people urged from side to side. Suddenly the sound of cracking timbers was heard, and women shrieked and fainted. A Wild Fanle Kreaks Out. Then there were heard several hoarse commands from the pilot house to the crew to clear the tiller chains. The upper deck beams bad cracked and the floor in sinking had jammed the tiller chains leading from the pilot house aft and the steamer, in the midst of the broiling rapids, wasentirely beyond control. hen it became known that the boat was un manageable close to the awful rocks an indescribable panic ensued. Women rushed here and there, those that hadn't fainted, and, worse than all, the crew and waiters on lioard made a rush for the pile of life preservers in the center of the cabin and on the after deck, and began strapping them on. The Meamer Strikes a Rock. The war veterans aboard kept their wits about them and fought the cowards away from the life-preservers, while as quickly as possible they strapped as many as they could find on the women and children. There were not enongh to half go round. The boat in tbe meantime bad turned en tirely around and was now going down tbe rapids stern first. Snddeuly there was a terrible jar and everybody's heart stood still. The steamer had struck a rock, and from the peculiar grating sound that fol lowed the shock she apparently slid off. The captain yelled that there was no dan ger and everybody expected the next min ute to be their last. Three More Rumps to Safety. The steamer slowly began to torn round again and then came another shock, followed by another, each of them heavier than the first.
