A SCALE REDUCTION ACCEPTED.

IEFECUL TZLZGBXX TO TBX SZSFXTCB.1
Columbus, April 26. Chris. Evans,
President of District No. 10, of the National
Progressive Union of Miners, will to-morrow
issue an important circular to the
'miners of the State. He reviews the fail
ure of the Operators' Committee to reach an
agreement with 135, at the Pittsburg meet
ing. The circular concludes:
It is not pleasant for miners' officials to ad
vocate the acceptance of a reduced rate of
wages, but the circumstances under which we
are surrounded at present demands advice that
is consistent and in keeping with honest con
"victions, that will hear the closest scrutiny of
.our enemies and serve the best interest of the
mining craft This we feel called upon to do,
and as the present scale prices end May 1, 18S9,
and the fact that the inter-State movement is
ended, the members of your Bute Executive
Board have concluded that it would be the
better Dart of wisdom t trv and TWAvent a. pon.
fiict between the miners and operators of Ohio.
GOETG IT JLLONK.
In accordance with the spirit manifested by
both parties since we failed to azree jointly
with other States and in accord with the sug
gestion made in President McBnde's circular
"That the district presidents should either
have their executive boards map out a course
to pursue or call district "conventions to de
cide, the members of the Executive Board
of District No. 10 have made the following
agreement with the representatives of the Ohio
operators that were elected at their State con
vention in Columbus April 9, 1SS9.
We, the undersigned officers and miners of
the National Progressive Union, hereby guar
antee to the operators' representatives of the
State of Ohio, an agreement for the price of
mining for the year of May 1, 1SS9, to May 1,
1690, and its successful fulfillment on the basis
of 62 cents, from May 1 to November 1, and
67 cents from November 1 to May 1, for the
HocUng District. (Signed.)

BEST THEY COULD DO.
This, we believe, is the best course to pursue
under existing circumstances. It will avert the
danger of a serious conflict Detween us; estab
lish peace and harmony during the coming
year, and show to the public in general that
when the storm is raging most, that reason and
intelligence enables us to grasp the situation
and contribute our share toward the mainte
nance of friendly relations between the em
ployer and employed.
It will bo seen by the agreement that the
members of our organization are not required
to ignore their umon principles, but on the
contrary we are able to command recognition,
as an organization, in the adjustment of scale
prices, and that in the future as in the past, we
shall conduct the business affairs of the miners
in accordance with trades union principles, and
check all future schemes that maybe intro

AN EMPHATIC PROTEST.
Prompt Action of Chief Elliot, Preventing
the Landtag of n Crippled Idiot Immi
grant Cogent Renaous.
B. C. Elliot, Chief of the Department of
Charities, prevented the landing of an alien
immigrant at Baltimore yesterday. The
case was one of a girl 13 years of age, named
Begina Warhues. She was shipped from
Bremen on the steamer Dresden and had a
ticket for Pittsburg, where her father lives.
The following letter, apprising Chief Elliot,
better tells the story:
Baltimore, April 21.
Mr. K. C. Elliot, Chief or Department of rubllc
Dear Sir I beg to advise you that the
steamer Dresden, from Bremen, brought an
alien passenger, Kegina L. YVarbues, a child,
who is a cripple and idiot, in fact a freak of
nature. Her passage money from Bremen to
Pittsburg was paid by icr relatives in Alle
gheny City, who, we are informed, are willing
to take care of her. This board, however, will
notpermit her landing, and will send her back
to Germany unless a guarantee is signed in
due form, recorded and approved by your de
partment. A blank form as per copy herewith
has been forwarded to' the relatives, who, no
doubt, will call on you to confer with you in
the matter. Respectfully yours,
"VV. G. HrLLKEN,
Secretary and Treasurer the State Board of
P. S. Kindly advise of your decision.
In response to the postscript Chief Elliot
sent the following telegram :
Your favor of 24th instant just received. I
protest against the landing of Begina Warhnes
and all similar cases. Shall express my views
more fully in letter of to-day. B, C. Elliot.
In addition Mr. Elliot sent the following
H. G. mitten, Esq., Secretary State Board of
Dear Sib Your favor of 24th instant in re
gard to the immigrant Kegina L. Warhues, who
you characterize as "a cripple, an idiot and a
freak of nature," is just received.
I have telegraphed you my protest against
permitting her (and all similar cases) to leave
the ship that brought them to this country, for
eventually this class of persons becomes a
charge upon the public
I think the admission of this girl would be a
violation of the spirit and letter of the immi
gration laws ot the country.
Had the provisions of these laws been prop
erly enforced, this department wonld not now
have in charge over 200 insane and Idiotic per
sons, we believe that 60 per cent of our ex
penses are incurred in maintaining foreign im
migrants and their offspring. Many thanks for
your courtesy in promptly notifying me of this
case. Very respectfully,
R. C. Elliot.
P. S. The father of the girl Begina has just
left my office with his friend. After showing
him a copy of my telegram to you, I explained
the law bearing on the case and refused to ac
quiesce in any arrangement for her admission.
As stated in his letter, the father of the
girl called on Chief Elliot. He is a resi
dent of Allegheny, and has been in the
country six years. He could not or would
not speak English, and had a young man
named C. T. Wiederhausen with him who
spoke for him. The girl in question has
been kept by relatives in Germany for 550
a year, and the father thought he could
keep her here for less. . She has been a crip
ple all her life, is 13 years old, and weighs
but 30 pounds. She is unable to stand on
her feet, and can eat nothing solid, sub
sisting -almost wholly on milk.

JACK, THE GIANT KILLER.
The head of our Glove Department came
to us holding in her hand the newspaper
with our yesterday's advertisement of "The
Three Giants." "ily department tan beat
that," she said. "The Housefumishiug
Department has a space 100 feet wide and
80 feet deep. The Cloak' Department has
a large room all to itself on the second
floor. The Book Department has about 30
feet of shelf room, with balconies running
up about 25 feet, and any amount of space
for reserve stock on the fifth floor. The
Glove Department, however, has only nine
feetof shelf room, carries no reserve stock,
and yet it sells more go'ods in dollars and
cents than any of the 'Three Giants.' "
All this being strictly correct, what
could we do but yield gracefully and dub
the little Glove Department "Jaqk, the
Giant Killer." '
In fact, for 14 years the Gloye Depart
ment has been one of our favorites. This
season it offers better values than ever,

We usually make a' general
reference to our offerings for
the following week.
We exiect to see a preat
flood of people in the city next
week, and doubtless, in addi
tion to our regular trade, we

for all possible demands. Spe

GREATEST OF ALL
Is the special sale of double
warp Surah Silks at 50c.
We announced this sale this
week, but the goods thus far
shown have merely been "re
minders" of what we place to
day on Silk Table No. 1 for
next weeks sales.
There will be over 200
pieces of Plain, Plaid and
Striped Surahs, goods bought
on Thursday, all new color
ings and guaranteed choice
(50c, as we said, but worth
15c and $1.)

priced goods, have received their additions,
all bought and marked with a view to offering
special values for next week.
Our Cashmere Department, both in black
and colored, will be ready but, considering
the prices of some of the goods, they seem to
be inviting their own extermination.
In the Wrap and Suit Rooms the same idea
of completeness has nrevailed. Children have
been remembered with Short Walking Coats,

Irish and French Woolens are unknown to them; everything is "English

arms (made reversible) goes with every sale. Six months' credit is give

July celebration. No purity to be found in them; cotton worsteds, cottog-all-woolens,
backed up by cheap, flasby trimmings, and tempting "specif
