Habjusbubq, August 18. The shabby
treatment accorded labor legislation at the
recent session is causing the Republican
leaders much concern because of its probable
detrimental effect on the election for State
Treasurer, and a scheme is on foot to hare a
report prepared by the Knights of Labor
committee appointed to push labor move
ments before the Legislature to show that
the political majority of that body should
not be held responsible for the failure of
legislation ia the interest of the working
men. Quay and other Republican leaders are
said to have had a conference recently in
which it was determined to exert every
possible influence to have such a report
framed, and in the event of success to have
it widely distributed in the mining and in
dustrial regions of the State. The commit
tee which is to do this work consists of
Charles Andrews, brother of Chairman
Andre ws,of the Republican State Committee,
"William Lewis, of this city, who was
recently appointed a postal clerk, and Hugh
McGarvey, a Greenbacker, who last year
made speeches for Congressman Brumm in
the Schuylkill district.
A STUMBLIKO BLOCK.
The movement was expected to be easy of
execution, but McGarvey is not as tractable
as its originators believed he would be. He
is said to have exppressed decided opposi
tion to signing a report which the history of
legislation flatly contradicts.
He has a lively recollection that the semi
monthly pay bill, the employes' liability
and the store order acts, the dockage and
other legislation which had the indorsement
of the Knights ot Labor State Convention,
which met in this city about the time of the
convening of the Legislature, were slaugh
tered, and up to this time all efforts to con
trol him in the interest of the defensive
campaign document arc said to have proved
The feeling against the Republican party
in the anthracite coal regions, which the in
dicated legislation was intended to particu
larly affect, is so pronounced because of the
blackeye given the several bills Chat the
Republican managers are expected to re
new their efforts to convert McGarvey to
their way of thinking. They have encoun
tered a serious stumbling block in the dis
covery of the omission in the concurrent
resolution of the provision invested in the
House empowering the Secretary of Inter
nal Affairs to appoint a representative of
the labor interests of Fennsvlvania on the
commission to frame an equitable revenue
This is the resolution which was intro
duced toward the close of the session by
Senator Delamater as a sop to the grangers
in return for the defeat of their bill to lessen
local taxation by imposingincreased taxes
on corporations. Information comes from
antautbentic source in the anthracite coal
regions that the miners intend to show the
majority party by voting against
Boyer for State Treasurer that it can
not afford to deny them the protection
demanded. As Boyer was Speaker of one
branch of the Legislature which either de
feated legislation in their interest or muti
latedlVso as to render it useless, they think
that no more opportune time could be se
lected than now to rebnke the Republican
-party for the course of its legislative rela
tioe to labor bills.
"Leading Democrats have endeavored to
persuade the indignant miners to reserve
their political thunder until next year,
when a Governor, member of Congress and
members of the Legisleture are to be elected,
but they have answered that they propose
to strike while the iron is hot

Mabiin's Feebt, August 18. There
was a serious riot among Hungarian blast
furnace laborers here this evening, which
created great excitement, and for a time
promised t result very seriously. A dozen
or more "Huns" had been drinking in a
houe on Second street all day, and the
police made several unavailing attempts to
stop the disorder. About G o'clock they
made a rush for the residence of Mrs. Mc
Laughlin and broke down the front door.
Marshal Burns ran to her rescue and five
oi the Huns attacked him. One threw an
ax at the marshal, which only missed him
by an inch or two and stuck in a post He
was also wounded in the arm, but knocked
out two of his assailants before assistance
arrived, when the Huns scattered and Burns
was safe. Seven arrests were made.

Johnstown, August 18. Yesterday was

deal of drinking last night The police
gathered in a number of the boisterous
ruffians, but as there is no place to confine
many, a large number that should have
been arrested were allowed'to continue their
disgraceful doings. If the present state of
things continues radical measures will have

A slight fire back of the business build
ings of the public square last night led to
the belief that the buildings were on fire
and quite an excitement was created for
sometime. These buildings are recognized
as being good food for the flames, and great
care is exercised by all the occupants. The
fire engine that formerly was kept on the
corner near these buildings has been re
moved to another point and it is urged that
it should be stationed here again. The
question of maintaining a fire department is
causing a great deal of trouble.
For the past six weeks a paid department
has been sustained at an expense of about
1100 a day. They do efficient service and
are really needed for the protection of the
town, but the propriety of paying them from
the relief fund is questionable. Four Phil
adelphia engines are in use that have been
kindly loaned, but steps will likely soon be
taken to get new engines and reduce the ex
penses of the paid department

Columbia, August 18. Justice Evans,
of Columbia, is now hearing evidence in the
suit instituted against the borough by Al

bounty promised him 'during the war by
Council. The suit was brought under the
act of Assembly of 1889 provided for the
bringing of such suits.
Roberts enlisted in 1861 and was mustered
out in 1864. He re-enlisted in the same
year. Before he re-enlisted he received a
letter from James Beatty, then Clerk of
Council, asking him to credit himself to
Columbia and promising that wheu he ar

room for fodder beneath; at the back other
things can be stowed away, and not an
inch of room need be wasted.

Atlanta, Ga., August 18 Rev. Henry
Montgomery, a colored preacher, was shot
yesterday in a cornfield, near Angerie's
Springs, by Amos Johnson, an old colored
man employed to watch the field. A few
days ago Johnson called on the preacher
and told him that somebody was stealing
Mr. Angerie's corn. "Get a gun and shoot
him," was the preacher's advice. Johnson
got a gun and the preacher was the first per
son shot Montgomery had a sack filled
with ears, and was leaving the field when
a load of slugs was sent alter him. One
slug struck him in the left breast and an
other in the hip. Both wounds are serious,
but may not prove fatal. Johnson was ar

He was a stamp fiend, young and preco

him down to the postoffice for a

but brought it home and hanged it over
and skipped out to play tag. Next day
they showed him a new sister, who had ar

"Washington, August 18. For long
months every attache of the navy has been
curious to learn the fate of the steel gun
cast at Thurlow, Pa., as having a lively
bearing on the safety of vessels and crews,
should it be accepted, and other similar
guns cast and mounted aboard the new
vessels of the navy. As heretofore stated in
The Dispatch, the authorities of the
Navy Department have been in a continu
ous quandary in regard to the disposition
which oughtvto be made of the Thurlow
gun. It so nearly stood the statutory test
without serious damage that there was a
disposition on every side to accept it, pay
the Standard Company the $5,300, which
was the amount of their bid, and then pro
ceed with the proving, with increased
charges of powder to the point of bursting,
making a careful record of the condition of
the gun after each shot But the law was
so clear on the point that to be accepted and
paid for a gun must be serviceable; that is,
in condition for actual service, that the
Board of Ordnance was forced against its
will to report against acceptance.
A TOUGH PBOELEM.
Even with this report before them, two
Secretaries of the Navy, "Whitney and
Tracy, have attempted to devise some
method of evading the law, that the inter
esting experiment of the cast steel gun
might be pursued to the point of final dem
onstration wnether it conld or could not be
made the gun of the navy, the gun of forts
and sea-coast defenses, and the gun ot the
artillery, in case of war, thus cheapening
the cost of these various classes of arma-
L ment by untold millions. "Whitney gave it
up, and left the decision as a legacy to iiacr,
and Tracy has been laboring over the prob
lem at intervals ever since his appointment,
without reaching a conclusion that the gun
can be accepted without further aotion by
The probabilities now are that in his first
report, at the opening of the next Congress,
Secretary Tracy will state the facts in regard
to the experiments with the Pittsburg and
the Thnrlow guns, and recommend an ap
propriation of the amount of the Standard
Company's bid for the purchase of that gun,
and a further and
MOBE LIBEBAL AITEOrBIATIOtf
than the former one, that subsequent experi
ments may be more thorough and on a more
elaborate scale. The Secretary is not yet
ready to give this to the publio as his decis
ion, but it can be stated from excellent au
thority that it is about concluded this is the
only way out if the experiment is not to be
abandoned absolutely andthe stamp of utter
failure put upon a kind of gun which, with
proper encouragement, might be made a
The fact is, the test of the Thurlow gnn so
far exceeded the expectatinn of the most ex
pert authorities of the navy in its near ap
proach to success, that they have become in
terested and encourage further trials, in
stead ot exhibiting skepticism and in some
cases unreasoning prejudice, as they did
months ago, previous to the proving of the
two guns. Moreover, eminent laymen, who
have made a study of the subject, and who
have complete faith in the ultimate triumph
of the solid cast gun, have not given up
their efforts at convincing the Navy Depart
ment that further and more expensive ex
periments should be pursued without loss of
HABD AT WOBK FOR IT.
Congressman Thomas, of Illinois, who it
was thought at one time would be Secretary
of the Navy, and who was really the insti
gator ot tne experiments already maae, and
the sponsor of the appropriations with
which they were enconraged, has been un
remitting in his argument before the de
partment for a further test The Standard
Company has assured the department that
it can make a better gun, but it will not feel
encourage to go to the expense of casting
another unless it gets pay for the one now at
Annapolis, as it thinks the nearness to suc
cess warrants reward, and that private par
ties should not stand all the loss when the
gain will be far greater for the Government
than anyone else in the event of success.
It has been suggested to the department
that the proper way to pursue experiment is
for the Government to pay all the expenses,
and so put no burden on private enterprise
and enthusiasm which might be deterred
from all attempt by the risk of losses too
heavy to be borne. This course will be
urged upon Congress, and with both
branches of that body in harmony with the
President, and no party majority striving to
make a record for economy at the expense
of another majority in another body, as has
been the case for years, a more liberal policy
may be expected.

Muskegon, August 18. Four years ago
Frank Stover was tarred and feathered by
indignant people of Fruitland towhship for

skeleton was found in the woods and from
the clothing it was settled beyond dispute
that it was the skeleton ot Stover.

A Chicago Man'a Sad Tale-Kidnaped and
Married, nnd Mow Seeking Divorce
From Whomever He Married
1 Ills Mynterlons Bride.
Chicago, August 18. Charles Mitchell,
a young man, has applied to the courts for
a divorce. If his tale is true something
should be done for him on account of the
wrongs he has suffered and the patience
with which he has endured them. Mr.
Mitchell tells the court that just about a
year ago he was wandering beneath the
pleasant shades of Evanston, neither
thinking nor doing ill, when two
strange men accosted him and told
him they were detectives and had a
warrant for his arrest. He followed them
submissively to a place where they met a
third man, who told Mr. Mitchell that he
must go at once to Chicago, and there be
married to a young woman whose name, he
says, he had never before heard. He was so
paralyzed by this information that fie made
nn effnrt to pet his freedom. He did not cry
out and implore the aid of the bystanders.
There would have been humanity enough in
Evanston to rescue him from his impending
doom if he had cried ouf that he bad been
kidnaped, and was on his way to the altar
He was carried to a Chicago hotel and
there locked up. Instead of ringing the
bell, getting a boy, and sending him forthe
police, this remarkable young man waited
in gloomy patience for the Inevitable. He
did not stick? his head out of the window
and cry for help, nor scribble a note telling
of his forlorn condition and throw it into
the street hoping that some one would pick
it up and hasten to his relief. He did none
of the things which innocent young men
do when they have been snatched away
from their friends and immured in gloomy
dungeons. At last there came a minister
whom he had never seen before and a young
woman who was quite aa much of a stranger
to him. A marriage ceremony was per
formed, though he frequently interrupted
it with his protests, and when it was over
he was told to go his way, which he did,
and since these he has been rn.using.over the
whole inexplicable affair. He has not
seen his wife since, and doubts if he would
It is an unpleasant position for a man to
be in to know that he has a wife and yet not
know who or whre that wife is. For all
that he knows she may suddenly begin to
run up bills in his name. She may burst in
upon him when he is in the pleasant society
of ladies or is having a jolly time of it with
men, and claim him as her own, A wife
lurking somewhere in the darkness is a con
stant menace. A man in such a plight may
meet and fall in love with his wire, and ap
ply for a divorce from her, so he may marry
her. All this Mr. Mitchell put up with for
a year, and finally asked the conrt to put
him out of his misery.
