Robert Lie, superintendent of the

Hated tbat things were in status quo at

Lee, "and tbe few bo nriaintd true to

the iters of the etnkers, ar d now opera

"Iif there any prospect whatever of an

porter. '"None so far as I know ," was tbe re
ply. "Have there 1 eo an' propositions
made either why hi. king to a settle
"No, there hsvebcenro conferences
between the nuipar.y and the miners,
and beixe no propositions and as far as
we arc concerned theie wi ! be none."
Mr. Lee said when aske 1 if the mintrs
had held any meitins, lbit be did" Lot

appear to be any tlii-pobition on the part
of tbe strikers to rpen r. gotiaiions, and

The outlook , therefore, for b&a(!jast

There is much joy among tbe followers
of Bn,hop Esher, of the E?di:fclical

dered by Judtje Blodgeti in Chicago re

The Argus Tbey claim it is one of the
most important decisions lhat has yet
len banded down in the case, and that
tt is of much more importance than the
decision pven by Judae Snaw in Freeporl
last w ek . A Chicago pat er has the fol
low inn to Say about the cae: The mis
fctonary socuty of tbe Evangelical asso
ciation, which is represented hv the
Bishop Eehtr faction in the German
Evangelical association, won a substan
tial victory in Jude Blodgetl's court
yesterday. Tlie society some monins
ht;o tied a Mil in tbe United S'ates cir
cuit court to enjoin Michael K'ickel
from acting as treasurer of the society,
and asking for an accounting on Lis pan
for n.onej8 all ged to have been collected
by him in tbe name of tbe society.
It was claimed lhat William Yost, of
C't velacd, was the only bona fide and
duly elected trensurer of the society, he
having been selected by a majority of the
ge-teral conference at Indianapolis. Kuo
kel claimed ti le to the office by reason of
bis election at a general conference heht
at Philadelphia, the authority of which
Wf.s not reeoynized by ihe o'her side.
Kunkel represented tbe Bishop Dubs fac
tion. He demurred to the bill, but Juds;:.
Blndgeti ovtrrul. d Ihe demurrer, and
then Kunkel's a torney said he was will
ing lo have an order entered in conform
ity with the pratrof the bill, but be
clairnid his client whs not collecting
money as alleged. Hereafter, therefore,
all missionary bodies affiliating with the
Evangelical association wi'l turn over all
their funds to Treasurer Yost, of Cleve

Roland Reed, the comedian, was com

Harper's t best re last evening splendid
in numbers and in its appreciative dispo

new play, "Lend Me Your Wife," is le
gitimate comedy, stripped of. noise and

prehended in the title from flrt.t to last.

customed toaprear. he proves h mself a
maMer of the chara tcr, snd bis ability as
an actor was probabiy never more pro

rounded himself by a superior company;
the "Bessie Buutiug," of Miss Rush, the
"Hit tie IVxiisx," of Miss Wallace, were
beautiful charac er delineations, while

there runs the pathetic strain:
