Atlanta, November 15. It is under
stood that the case of Joseph L. Evans -will
not come up before the General Assembly,
Knights of Labor, but will be referred back
to his local assembly in Pittsburg. It may
possibly come before the General Executive
Board. Miners D. A. 135 took the
ground that it should not come
up here. There ' seems to be
little Jeeling against Evans on account of
the charges -connected with illegal impor
tation of glassblowers. While he is Presi
dent of the Trades Council, which brought
that charge against L. A. 300 of glass
blowers, it is believed that Homer L. Mc
Gaw instigated it. It is not considered that
Evans acted from malice, but the opinion of
leading Knights seems to be that he was a
little rash in preferring the charge.
WORE ALLEGED EVIDENCE.
It is claimed that L. A. 300 has evidence
to prove that the foreign glassblowers who
came to Jeannette, Pa., last Hay, came
simply on the information that there were
vacancies at Jeannette. It is claimed they
paid their own expenses over, and came
without any contract obnoxious to law.
Some minor matters of discipline will
come up from Pittsburg, along with the
general list, bnt none that will in any event
involve more than a censure. The General
Assembly will take up the land question
to-morrow morning for discussion, and
"Worthy Foreman "Wheat thinks they will
take advanced ground. He says the leaders
of the order are really more advanced than
the creed of the order, and would
not urge their views for fear of making dis
sensions. The sentiment toward the hold
ings advocated by Henry George is grow
ing. Mr. Wheat thinks the question should
be legislation like the old agrarian laws of
Some, where the holding of land was
limited. But he thinks progress in that
direction will have to be gradual, and the
leaders have been slow to embarrass the
order with extreme positions. He thinks
the position taken to-morrow will be con
is felt in the appearance before the Knights
of Labor of President L. F. Livingston, of
the Georgia State Farmers' Alliance. A
grand federation of the Farmers Alliance
and the Knights of Labor has been suggest
ed, but Livingston was conservative and
non-committal, though he has the matter
under consideration, and is studying the
Knights of Labor organization and prin
ciples. In his address to the General Assem
bly ,he said on this subject tbat the
motto of the farmers was "Equal Bights to
AH, and Special Privileges to Hone." He
then took tbe ground that all classes other
tban speculative capitalists were interested
in this work. In reference to federation, he
said to tpe Knights that, withont knowing
their ulterior objects and principles, there
was no reason in the upbuilding of tbe
country why the two orders should not go
hand in hand, where their objects and pur
poses were one, and agreeing that if they
did diverge, to do so in peace, without any
Discussion of the eight-hour movement
may come up to-morrow, but it is thought
the assembly is disposed to take steps in that
direction gradually, and an agreement to
participate in a general strike in 1890 for
eight hours a dav is not probable.
LILLIAN DID NOT ELOPE.
The Famous Opera Sincrr ! Simply Taking
a Little Rett.
New Yoke, November 15. A dispatch
from Chicago last night stated that Lillian
Bussell, the prima donna of the Casino
"Brigands" Company, had eloped with
Walter Sanford, a well-known and wealthy
New Yorker. It is true that Miss Bussell
left Chicago last night for New York, but
otherwise the statement is false. When it
was decided late in the summer to send a
company on the road an agreement was made
with Miss Bussell whereby she had per
mission to leave the company two or three
nights before the conclusion'of a lengthy en
gagement in any city and proceed to the
next "stand" in order to recuperate her
voice "prior to beginning the new engage
ment. This is all there is to the case in
Yesterday she telegraphed Mr. Aronson
that she would start tor New York on the
5 o'clock limited. The company opens at
Philadelphia on Monday night, and Miss
Bussell's trip East is solely for the purpose
of resting herself for Monday night's per
formance. While in the city she will visit
her daughter, who is in a convent at Ft.
Lee, and whom she has not seen in two
"So far as Miss Bussell is concerned,"
said an an attache of tbe Casino this morn
ing, "she has had enough of elopements.
Her experience with Teddie Solomon left an
impression that will never be effaced. It
was a valuable experience, and she has
profited by it."
A SLANDERED COMMISSION.
Gentlemen of Johnstown Flood Relief Fume
Messrs. S. S. Marvin, Beuben Miller and
J. B. Scott, of the State Flood Commission,
returned to Pittsburg last evening,
after a day's investigation at Johns
town. Unexpectedly they almost ran
into a meeting of 500 citizens there, called
together on misrepresentations as to the
commission's methods so Mr. Scott ex
plained last night. Delegates from that
meeting presented the alleged injustices
Eunerea ny it poor lamuies.
Investigation and comparison showed
that not 1 out of the 16 cases demanded any
fnrtber consideration to insure either just or
generous treatment. Indeed, one of the
kickers, who had lost nly $20 in the flood,
had got a full (20 return Irom the commis
sion. The genntlemen of the latter body
feel, very naturally, that they have been
slandered and maligned withont cause.
Beyond auditing Secretary Kremer's
bills and accounts, no further business was
done by the commission yesterday.

Tbe Salt of tbe Panhandle Road Against tbe
Baltimore and Ohio Tbe Latter Eu
dcHTorlnff to Assist the Thea
WASHiNGTON.Kovember 15. The Inler
State Commerce Commission was to-day en
gaged in the hearing of the complaint of
the Pittsburg, Cincinnati and St. Louis
Bail way Company versusjtbe Baltimore and
Ohio Railway Company. The complaint
alleges, under date of July 5 last, that de
fendant had put into effect "party rates,"
whereby parties of ten or more persons
traveling together on one ticket are trans
ported over the lines at 2 cents per mile per
capita, which, it is charred, is less than the
regular rate for a single person, which is
about 3 cents per mile. Petitioner insists
that this practice of the Baltimore and Ohio
uivera tramc irom tne fitisourg, Cincin
nati and St. Louis road, which is greatly
damaged by loss of revenue thereby.
Defendant in answer contends thatthe
making of these rates was in no way a viola
tion of the inter-State commerce act; that
they are an accommodation to the public
and necessary to the business of the theatri
cal and other amusement combinations.
Mr. C. K. Lord, Vice President of the Bal
timore and Ohio Company, was the first
witness, and was examined at great length
concerning the action of the company with
relation to the points at issue. The other
witnesses were Messrs. Edward E. Bice and
Henry C. Jarrett, theatricalmanagers. Mr.
Jarrett gave it as his opinion tbat the ex
action of full rates would be to partially
paralyze and stop the business of more than
two-thirds of the traveling companies. Mr.
Bice in his testimony stated that last year
he had 240 people on the road, and the dif
ference in the transportation charges between
that year and preceding years was $30,000.
The result of the charging of full rates, he
said, would be that first-class attractions
would not be able to travel over the country.
The smaller companies, he said, composed
of but few people, might be able to con
tinue, but not so with the larger ones. He
said that at a meeting of the theatrical man
agers in New York last May four-filths of
them said it would be impossible to keep
their companies on tbe road in the future if
full rates were charged, and thevonlv con-
L tinned in business because they hoped to
obtain early reliet. Companies are being
constantly withdrawn from the road on ac
count of the heavy railroad charges.
Counsel for complainant then submitted
the case in a short argument, and the other
counsel will submit printed briefs.
A Man Walks Into the Chicago Henlth
Office aad Announces Tbat He Has
tbo Pett Hundreds of Persons
Exposed to Infection.
CHICAGO. November 15. One of the
biggest sensations over a case of smallpox
that has occurred in Chicago for years de
veloped at the Health Office this afternoon,
when a fleshy young man with a pimply
face entered and announced that he
had the smallpox. Health Commis
sioner Wickersham was recently vac
cinated, bnt the announcement sent the
other occupants out of the office flying
helter skelter. The young man was at once
taken in charge by Dr. Wickersham and
Dr. Montgomery and examined. Their de
cision was that it was a genuine case of
smallpox, and the patient was secluded.
The ambulance was ordered to convey the
man to the smallpox hospital. Dr. Wicker
sham issned an order that every member of
the Health Department should at once be
vaccinated, and the work was taken in hand
by Dr. Montgomery.
The story of the case is of unusual inter
est. The patient is Oscar Beck, a bar
tender, who has been working regularly in
William Hessemer's saloon, 227 Clark
street, in the very heart of the city. Last
Wednesday he fell ill, and Thursday a
fever apreired. He continued work, b'ow
ever, until Thursday night. Then the rash
on the face appeared and began to develop
rapidly. To-day he went into the
office of Dr. N. B. Davis, Jr., and
as there were a great many other
patients ahead of him, he was compelled to
sit there two hours before seeing the doctor,
thus exposing all the patients. Dr. Davis
suspected that it was smallpox and called
in Dr. Davis, Sr., who confirmed his opin
ion. The doctors, so Mr. Beck says, told
him to go to the health office for a further
diagnosis, and did not take the precaution
of detaining the man in the office and send
ing for one of the city's medical inspectors.
When Beck left he was puzzled whether
to go to the health office and be conveyed to
the pest house, or run the risk of escaping
that unpleasant prospect. For nearly two
hours he roamed around the streets, and
then concluded that he had better do as he
had been told. Opinion differs as to whether
the patient was at a stage of the disease
where fie musj have infected the hundreds
of people who passed aud repassed him on
the crowded streets.
EIGHT NICE NEW DESKS
Prepared for the Incoming Senator From
rSFECUU. TELEOEAM TO TBI DISFATCH.1
Washington, November 15. Captain
Bassett, the custodian of the United States
Senate chamber, will have eight new desks
put in place to-morrow to accommodate the
Senators from the new States. Hereafter
there will be 84 Senators, and unless the
Democrats make some unexpected points in
Montana, 47 of them will be Republicans.
This will make the distribution of desks a
little uneven,, but that cannot be avoided.
These eight new mahogany desks have
been made to order by the Senate carpenter,
and are exact reproductions of the old ones.
At present, and until the result of the Sena
torial contests in the new States is known,
six of the desks will be upon the Republi
can side of tbe chamber and two upon the
Democratic side. Mr. Bassett keeps a little
red book, in which from year to year he
notes the desires of the Senators to possess
certain seats as they become vacant

New Yoee, November 15. More than
200 women of ample means, some of them
from other cities, were assembled yesterday
in the parlors of Henry Yillard's residence at
the annual meeting of the Women's Ex
change. The most interesting event of
the meeting was Mrs. Candace Wheeler's
report, embodying the proposition that the
woman's hotel project, which many wealthy
men aud women have been pushing for two
years, be combined with the present Ex
change, and that a large building be erected
for tbe joint occupancy. Mrs. Wheeler sug
gested that a suitable building be erected
with money raised on stock to be issued by
the corporation; that the lower floor be
leased for the Exchange, and the upper
floors rented out in apartments for women.
The report of the Treasurer showed that
the Exchange in this city sold (44,000 worth
of goods in the past year. On this is se

New Yoek, November 15. In sympathy
with the d ecrease in tbe passenger-carrying
business, all the .big European steamship
companies are preparing to take off the best
boats of their service. The new Teutonic,
of the White Star Line, will make another
trip to this side, and on her return to the
Mersey will be laid up in Liverpool harbor
for the winter. The City of New York, of
the In man's, will continue her regular trans
Atlantic trips until the holidays, when a
few weeks of tinkering will be given her.
Her sister ship, the City of Paris, which has
smashed all records, will remain in service
throughout tbe winter, next spring and sum
mer. Tbe experiment of running vessels of the
size and type of the Paris and New York is
occasioning a great deal of interest in mari
time circles. Tbe agents of rival lines are a
unit in tbe opinion that the experiment will
not pay. It costs more to run the Paris and
her consort than any other two racers on
the Atlantic, and these rival companies
think the winter season cannot produce a
sufficient amonutoi passenger trade to make
the candle worth tbe burning. The Messrs.
Wright, who are the local agents for the
record-breakers, do not concur in this be
lief, and are Quite willing to lose or win in
WIDENING ANDERSON STREET.
Allecbenlnns Copying After tbe Diamond
A plan to widen a portion of Anderson
street, Allegheny, is being discussed by the
residents of that thoroughfare just at pres
ent The property which will be affected,
should the project be carried through, is
situate on the west side ot the street, and
extends from Isabella street to Bose alley.
Part of tbe ground is owned by a lady
named Paul and part by the Wilson heirs.
The houses built on tbe land extend out 11
feet farther than the other buildings on the
street, and, as a consequence, the pavement
at that point is very narrow, not being more
than three or four feet wide.
The proposed widening has been talked
about for years, but until lately no definite
action has been taken. It was learned yes
terday", however, that a syndicate had
secured options on several properties along
Anderson street, and was agitating the
widening scheme as a sort of side issue for
its own particular benefit Property own
ers along the street are divided in their
opinions on the subject, some claiming tbat
the widening could be done very cheaply in
comparison with the benefits it would bring
to all, while others are opposed to the
scheme because they think it would cost too
much and be ot little or no benefit
Some thought that the Pleasant Valley
Bailway people were back of the scheme,
aud that it was but the legitimate outcome
of their action in building their new bridge,
the Allegheny end of which is at Anderson
street It was, argued that, when the bridge
is finished, the increase of travel, both
vehicle and foot, will make it absolutely
necessary that the street be widened.
Mrs. Paul was seen by a Dispatch re
porter last night, and in response to his
"I have heard the project mentioned, of
course, just as I have heard it for a num
ber of years. Nothing has been accom
plished yet, as you see, though at various
times I am approached on the subject I
am opposed to tbe scheme, and I think that
I have a right to be, as I will be tbe one to
suffer loss should the thing be dene. Three
of my houses would be ruined, as they are
small anyway, and to make them smaller
would be to render them uninhabitable. Of
course I would be paid for what would be
taken from me, but I am satisfied that I
would not get anything near its value. I
talked with several Councilmenon the sub
ject lately, and they told me that they were
sure nothing would be done for at least a
couple of years. You are correct about the
syndicate, I believe, though I have had no
dealings with it. I do not know tbe names
of its members, but I am informed that they
The street would be 'considerably im
proved if the law is carried out It is too
early yet to get estimates of cost, but there

which they stand.
SIGNING THE PAPERS.
The Barb Wire Pool Is Now an Assured
Go A Sleeting Held In This City on
Wednesday and Details Completed.
J. L. Ellwood, "the barb wire king," of
De Kalb, 111., and head of the Ellwood
Manufacturing Company, was in the city
yesterday. He left last evening for New
York to be present at the wludnp of the
absorption of all the principal barb wire
mills in the country.
On Wednesday last a meeting was held at
the Hotel Duquesne by J. W. Gates, Presi
dent of the Braddock Wire Company;
George T. Oliver, of Oliver & Boberts,
and George Douglass, of thelowaBarb Wire
Company of New York. After a final
discussion in regard to the terms, the three
gentlemen left for New York. A meeting
ot wire manufacturers from all over the
country has been going on therefor two days
and will not adjourn until this evening.
Mr. Ellwood will meet the other manufact
urers to-day, whenit is expected that all the
papers in the deal will be signed: and the
comDination be an assured go.
Mr. Oliver will probably arrive home to
morrow. He is one of the foremost men in
theformationof the combination. The details
of the latter were fully published exclnsivel v
in The Dispatch two weeKs ago. It was
stated at the time, that the only thing done
was the signing of the papers. The cause
of the delay is due to tbe fact that some of
the manufacturers wanted too much money
ior their plants. The new combined inter
ests will be called the Federal Steel Com
pany and will have a capital stock of about
512,000,000, If the meeting now being held
at the Gilsey Honse in New York does not
complete the organization another meeting
will be held in Chicago next week.
NOT P0IS0SED. BUT QUITE SICK.
West Point Cadets Ent Too Many Apricots
Stewed to Milk.
rSFZCIAIi TELEGRAM TO THB DISPATCB.1
West Point, N. Y., November 15.
The wild rumors that have been flying
around Cranstous, West Point, and New
burg, about the alleged wholesale poisoning
among the cadets at the barracks, are being
generally dispelled. On the sick book for
Tuesday are 67 cases, 6 of which were for
complaints reported previous to 6 p. ii. that
day. The balance, 62 cases, are marked
acute diarrhoea. Although reported on the
sick list, none of them were considered sick
enough to go to the hospital, but were per
mitted to remain in their own beds in their
quarters. On the following day the patients
did not show much signs ot recovering, and
the list was increased to 60. Before mid
night on that day the medicine seemed to
have effect. Yesterday the number of per
sons detained as sick by reason of the
alleged poison was 70. This has been de
creased to 6, 4 of whom are in the hos
pital. They are cadets Winston, Marshall,
F. W. Caldwell and Harrison.
The doctors are satisfied, so Lieutenant
Brown says, that apricots stewed in milk
are responsible for tbe general sickqess.
This dish is a lavorite one with cadets, and
they partook of it with too great relish, con
sidering tbat the fruit was unripe and that
the milk was curdled.
Unknown Man Killed.
The Coroner was notified that an un
known man was killed by a Baltimore and
Ohio train at Saltsburg yesterday morning.
The body was taken to the undertaking
house of Volk Brothers, McKeesport. The
man was 6 feet tall, 40 years old, weighed
180 pounds, had a sallow complexion and
brown hair and mustache. He wore a
brown and black striped coat, jean pants,
a blue flannel shirt and laced shoes, and his
hands were calloused by labor.
Boat bt at Auction.
The largest auction sale that has taken
place in years was held last Tuesday, No
vember 12, in New York City. It was a sale
of the entire clothing stock ot the well
known firm of Messrs. Nanmberg, Kraus,
Lauer&Co., and inclnded the finest of
overcoats ana suns, ior wnicn this firm is
specially noted. Always looking for these
opportunities, our buyer was on band. He
bought, and he bought heavily at about one
third what the goods cost to manufacture.
We paid spot cash, and the first fast express
landed them at our store, corner Grant and
Diamond streets. We have arranged them
on twelve counters, and marked them at a
little above cost. To-day you can have a
Eick from this puronase, and at $8 buy a
andsome chinchilla overcoat, worth $15
and $16; $12 gives you a selection of im
ported English kersey overcoats, regular
price $22 to $24; also cape coats and top

CHICAGO THE FAVOBITE.
A resolution was offered by Mr. Tabor, of
Colorado, asking Congress to select Chicago
as the best point for the location of the
World's Fair in 1892. Mr. Kelly, of Kan
sas, offered an amendment striking out
Chicago and inserting instead St. Louis.
This was lost. The question coming up on
locating the fair in Chicago, the vote stood:
261 ayes, 63 nays.
A resolution favoring Government aid to
steamship lines to build up trade between
this country and Central and South America,
came up and an adverse report was adopted.
Tbe following is the fnll text of the resolu
tions relating to the tariff adopted bv the
congress. They were prepared by Hon.
William F. Lawrence, of Ohio, who urged
their passage as reported favorably irom the
Resolved, That, while Congress maintains
the policy of a protective tariff, we demand
that all farm products shall be as fully pro
tected as tbe most favored of the manufactur
Resolved, That while, as now, a protective
tariff is maintained which substantially pro
tects importations from foreign countries of
manufactured goods, we demand tbat tbe
duties on mutton, sheep and wool of all kinds
shall be so increased as to equally prohibit the
importation of mutton, sheep and wool of
every kind which can, under protection, be
sufficiently produced at fairly remunerative
prices in tbe United States to supply all Amer
ican wants, including tbe better class of carpet
wools, especially as carpets, as luxuries, are
entitled to less favor than farm and rancne
Resolved, That tbe tariff on wool imported
to make carpets should at least be as high as
tbat imported to make coats.
Kesoivea, 'mat u protection to this extent
be denied we will recall upon the farmers of
the United States to assert their power at tbe
ballot box and otherwise to right the wrong
and injustice of discrimination against them.
If they fail in this, the wool and mutton pro
ducing industries will be so seriously crippled
tbat they will be, in a large measure,destroyed,
and the farmers will no longer have any Inter
est in protection for the manufacturers of
woolen goods, but will Insist tbat they shall
nave no larger measures ot protection tnan is
accorded to tbe wool industry, including any
kind of wool.
A STEONG- INTIMATION.
Resolved, That the farmers of the United
States are not called upon to support tbe nomi
nation of any man for President. Senator or
Representative in Congress who will not to his
utmost ability aid in carrying out tbe objects
of tbe foregoing resolutions.
Resolved, Tbat we favor commercial treaties
which will discriminate in favor of the nations
which accept silver as legal tender money as
against those which nave demonetized silver.
The following was presented as a minority
Resolved, That this Congress demand of our
Senators and Representatives in Congress from
our respective States tbat tber shall use their
best efforts to reduce the tariff to a strictly
revenue basis, and tbat when practicable it
shall be removed from tbe necessaries of life
and placed upon tbe luxuries.
Mr. McKenzie, of Kentucky, offered the
following as a substitute for the whole mat
ter: Resolved, That the Farmers' Congress rec
ommends to tbe Congress of the United States
the enactment of such just tariff laws as will
secure an equal aistriDution oi pumic ouraens
and provide sufficient revenue for tbe Govern
ment. THE MAJORITY BZPOET WINS.
A vote by States was then taken on Mr.
McKenzie's substitute, and it was lost. The
minority report was also defeated. The
vote then recurred to the original resolu
tions, and after considerable discussion a
division was agreed upon, so as to take a
separate vote on tbe silver resolution.
On the majority report, excepting tbe sil
ver resolution, the vote as taken by States
stood as follows: For the resolution as re
ported by the committee: Colorado, Flori

A LITTLE ONE THIS TIME.
A Fresh Petrolrum Strike Reported Up the
A. V. It. Ri Yesterdny.
It's a poor day that doesn't develop a new
oil field in the vicinity of this county.
The last one is at Chartiers, n small hamlet
22 miles up the Allegheny Valley Bailroad.
What is called the second sand in that sec
tion is said to have produced oil at a depth
of 200 feet, and a good producer is predicted
by some when drilling is extended some
hundreds of feet deeper.
The well is owned by a company'of which
Alderman Porter and a man named Shears
are members. The venture is a new one and
thongh the territory has not been regarded
as oil country, all theories having been
knocked into a cocked hat lately, a new
field in any section does not excite surprise.
it seems tbat when tbe eartn was in a
wrinkling state in this section the process
did not follow anv established rules, and
science oi late is disposed to lay her lips in-j
tbe dust and acknowledge tnat sue is only a
better guesser tban those who trust to bull
luck and follow wildcatting. There was no
fresh news from the known fields except that
the latest development on the Steubenville
was not displaying so much energy as on
Wednesday and Thursday. She is only a
few inches in the sand, however, and there
is no telling what more drilling may ac
complish. Those who desire a pure article of rye
whisky at a reasonable price will find it at

THREE CENTS PER DAT,
Suffering; and Destitntloa Anions; tbe Miners
or Clny County, Indiana Relief Neces
sary. Mr. Horsfield, of Brazil, Clay county,
Ind., who has been in this district for some
time soliciting assistance for the Indiana
miners, at present on strike, addressed a.
meeting of the Stonecutters' International
Union on Tuesday night on tbeir behalf.
The appeal resulted in a generous contribu
tion by the members of $100.
On the following evening Mr. Horsfield
stated his case to a meeting of the Stone-
fflSlnnt' TThih- n-l.M u.w,.J in n a!m.
llarly charitable manner, contributing $100.
The strike has been now nearly eight
months in progress and there are no indica
tions that it will soon terminate. The feat
ures of the difficulty have been already re-
.-errea to at length in the uispatch.
Out of the 2,200 miners originilly included
in the struggle 150 bave returned to work at
the rate demanded, but there are still about
5,300 persons dependent on outside assist
ance for the barest necessaries of life. For
the wegk ending lt3t Saturday seven days
all the assistance that could be afforded
to each person was the very small amount
of 20 cents, or less than 3 cents for each one
of the 5,300. Exertions bave been
made in Indianapolis and other cities
to alleviate, in some measure, the sufler
ings of these people by contributions of
clothing and shoes. The Indianapolis Sen
tinel, about six weeks ago, made an appeal
in their behalf, and established headquart
ers in its office for the reception of articles of
wearing apparel which citizens mijht desire
to nave lorwaraea.
It also sent around wagons where required
to collect contributions. In this manner
three carloads of clothing were collected
and sent to the suffering families. Evans-
ville sent one carload of clothing, and lib
eral donations were shipped from Fort
Wayne, Terre Haute, Cincinnati and other
THE OLIVER I. AND 8. W0EK8 SIGN.
Tbe Holders Resume on Monday The Firm
Willing; to Grant the Increase.
The molders of the Oliver Iron and Steel
Works will resume work on Monday, in
pursuance of a communication received at
K. of L. headquarters yesterday from a
.member of the firm.
That the men did not resume some time
ago was due to a misapprehension which
arose between tbe firm and tire Shop Com
mittee of the molders. The firm had notified
its intention of granting the increase should
other founders do so, and when the first con
cessions to the men were made tbe firm in
structed its foreman to inform the men of its
willingness to yield the demand and to re
quest them to resume work. This the men
were prepared to do on the representation of
the firm that it would give them the in-
crease, nut tney beid tbat in justice to
the bodj of molders the firm should
signify its acquiescence in writing. Yes
terday a committee representing the molders
conversed with a member of the firm for a
lengthened time with regard to the affair,
with the result that the misunderstandings
were very pleasantly explained way, and
the letter embodying the firm's position in
the matter forwarded. The relations be
tween the Oliver Iron and Steel Works and
its men has been of the pleasan test, and atno
time did any appearance of friction arise on
the score of demand for an increase of wages.
But three firms are still holding out, one
of which it is thought will sign to-day or
Monday. Of the other two, pne has declared
his unalterable intention not to yield, and
the other employs but few men.

Ayevedo. He is quite well known in the

He began bis naval career as an officer la

years ago, it being the custom
of Brazil to send her young
men to the Governments of the United
States and Europe to fit them for service in
the navy of their own Govern

throne abdicated by his father, Pedro I.
For two years he was under the tutelage of
the regent Dom Bonifacio de Andrade, the'
leader of the Brazilian Democratic party,
After Andrade's fall In 1833 Dom Pedro be-j
came a ward of the Council of Regency. In)
1840 be was declared by the Chambers to bave

was solemnly crowned Sovereign of Bra
zil. On September 4, 1843, he mar
ried Princess Tberese de Bourbon, daughter
of Francis I-, King of the Two Sicilies; Dom
Pedro's first act was an arbitrary one. On as
suming tbe Government be dissolved tbe Bra
zilian Parliament. Fierce discontent resulted,
and an Insurrection sprang np In Sao Paulo,
which General Caxias found difficulty in sup
pressing. In 1842 tbe province ot Mlnas Gerses)
also rebelled, but the insurgent innt ma
L finally routed at Santa Lucia. In 1843 tbero
was a tuira revolution in .remambuco, but1
from the suppression of this last Democratic:
attempt, until this year, Brazil has enjoyed
com pleto Internal peace. Tbe sale ot slaves la
tbe Empire was prohibited by Dom Pedro in
1850, in order to avoid difficulties with England.
In 1852 an alliance was formed between Brazil,
Urncnay and -the Entre Bios forces againss,

tbrow the Empire gained an Increase of terrti
tory and tbe free navigation of tbe River
Platte. In 1863. in conjunction with the Argen

estimated population of 9,913,000. During late
years tbe Emperor has encouraged immigration
from Europe, chiefly from Germany and
Switzerland. The State pays portion of the
passage money of immigrants. In 1869 about
40,000 settlers were reported in Brazil. In 1S71
LIOS people sailed from Bamourg to Brazil,
and In 1S72 some 2,000sett!ers. chiefly Germans, '
arrived at Bio Janeiro. Brazil was discovered
by Cabral in 1MO and taken possession of for
Portugal. During the 322 subsequent years it
remained subject to Portugal it was frequently
the refuge of Portugese monarchs flying from
home. In 1821 a revolution took place In
Brazil and Dom Pedro, eldest son of King John
VL. of Portugal, was proclaimed Independent
Einneror of Brazil. A constitution was
