' Several English gas companies are having
trouble with their employes. The men at
Manchester went ont yesterday, and those on
the aouth side of the Thames in Iondon
threaten to strike. John Barns is engineer
ing the strike at the former place. The labor
v troubles hare necessitated au addition ot
0,000 men to the .London police force.

IiOSDOK, December 7. Copyright,
jThe threatened strike of London cas stokers
fen the south side of the Thames, promises
to be as productive of incident and interest
m the dockmen's strike. The origin of the
i dispute is a enrions one. The South Lon
don Company, like sll the London gas
companies, is enormously rich, but the law
will not allow it to distiibnte more than 10
per cent dividends, though some small ex
tra bonnsis conceded. Consequently- the
company scarcely knows what to do with
Its surplus funds. The chiefs are all paid
handsomely, luxury abounds in the houses
and offices ot the staff; new gas mains of the
most expensive Muds are being constantly
laid, and new works erected. The gas has
been reduced in price two or three times,
And still there is a surplus.
XBOUBLE WITH" IIS SUBPLUS.
To get rid of the surplus, and at the same
time benefit their workmen, the directors of
the company elaborated a scheme whereby
; every man would have a small sum paid
Jilm yearly. In return for this privilege
ithe men were to sign a 12 months' contract,
!ln which it was set forth that the bonus ab
isolntely belonged to the men, unless In
.case of willful misbehavior or of strike.
(Thereupon the men rebelled. They thought,
'if they signed for 12 months, the company
would only try to cet more work out of
them, and they saw also an attempt, by
binding them so closely, to break up the
Gas Stokers Union. They would prefer to
have their wages advanced $1 weekly, and
l to forgo the fortnight annual holiday at the
BOUND TO STICK TO IT.
Naturally the directors are indignant at
having their cift treated in this way, and aB
a large number of employes have already
feigned the contract, they are determined to
abide bv their scheme. The stokers, how
ever, who have mainly held aloof Irom it,
thare determined to resist, and a strike will
commence in a week's time, unless some ar
rangement is arrived at. Already the men
are preparing for a straggle, and pickets are
placed at every railway station in London,
to prevent new hands reaching the gas
South London is within a measurable dis
tance of absolute darkness, as there is no
electric light in that region, and with the
foggy season full upon us, and a 16 hours'
night out of the 24, the outlook is certainly
not inspiring to those who hare the mis
fortune to live is South London.
AirOIHEB STRIKE OS.
Another great gas strike has already been
brought about at Manchester, where the
municipal corporation owns the cas works
and where the men turned out to-day. The
corporation is making frantic efforts to get
new hands, and they have to some'extent
succeeded, but nevertheless, Manchester is
threatened with partial darkness, the same
as South London. John Burns is on the
spot, encouraging the men, but be returns
to London on Monday to organize the other
By the way, the chief agitator among the
South London stokers is one Austin, a born
orator and leader of men, a good workman
and a man of sound judgment. He will be
beard of strain in these labor disputes. The
strengthening of the .London police force by
the addition of 1,000 men was unexpected,
but the rapidly increasing area of modern
Babylon, and the labor involved in watch
ing the continual trade disputes, is sufficient
warrant for the increase.
GLADSTONE IK HIS ELEMENT.
The Grand Old Mao Delighted With HIi Re
ception at Bfancheater.
JBT CJLBL.X TO THE DISPATCH.)
Loxrxnr, December 7. Mr. Gladstone
had a magnificent reception at Manchester,
and the speeches which he delivered have
animated and encouraged the home
rulers .throughout the laud, Mr. Bal
four has also been speaking at
select ticket meetings in Glasgow
and Edinburgh, but he said nothing
new, and failed even to dish up the old facts
in an appetizing or novel form. The only
thing at all remarkable about them, in
truth, was the vitriolic virulence with which
.be attacked his political opponents. The
Nationalist organ, the Freeman's Journal,
has made a weak attempt to emulate ta e
Balfonrian style, In the following editorial
Tie effeminately supercilious Mr. Balfour,
the Scottish Mary Anne among politicians,
the psendo aristocrat who diets himself upon
pills and saline mixtures, the theosopnite
philosopher wbose Taunted virility i open to so
many doubts, shall nut wind up his suspicious
career in the manly clothing and the manly
accents which he assumes when tar away Irom
Ireland, without final exposure.
It will be interesting to many Americans
to know that Mr. Gladstone returned home
to Hawarden alter his four days' campaign
in Manchester in undiminished health and
strength. He narrowly escaped a cold,
though. On Monday be rode in the bitter
east wind through the streets of Manchester
bareheaded. As a rule the Grand Old Man
takes cold easily, but he savs he never suf
fers through going without his beadgear.and
this he ascribes to invariably discarding his
hat when working out of doors at Hawarden.
The old man expressed himself as delighted
with the unanimity and enthusiasm of the
Liberal delegates at Manchester. He de
clared it a sure augury of victory.

Great Bask to Asscrlca.
New York, December 7. Archbishop
Corrigan was seen this afternoon in regard
to a statement published this morning that
a great Boman Catholic bank with a cam
tal of $100,000,000. was about to.be started
in this city. The Archbishop said:
"Sou can deny the whole tiling, most pos
itively. This Mr. Leybourn is a most con
summate liar .The whole thing is a gigantic
scheme of swindling. I have never in any
shape or form given any sanction or coun
tenance to Mr. Leybourn'a scheme. Mr,
Eugene Kelly, Mr. Hoguet and Mr. James
Lynch, who have been mentioned in connec
tion with the matter, all of them state most
positively that they would never approve it
The story that I have had friends in the
Vatican pushing the scheme is ju unmiti
gated falsehood. The Vatican has never
written a line to me, or I to them, in refer
ence to the matter. Moreover, there are
documents in my possession which charac
terize Mr. Leybourn as a liar and a fraud.
This papal benediction does not amount to
anything. It is simply a blank form which
anyone can buy and fill in."
Archbishop Corrigan then showed the re
porter a long letter which he had received
from "Colonel" Leybourn, asking he Arch
bishop's support for the proposed bank, and
offering him 1,000 shares of stock of the en
terprise if he received the Archbishop's sup
port. The "Colonel" also said that if the
enterprise succeeded he had reason to know
that someone might receive red stockings,
"intimating, of course, thereby," said the
Archbishop, "that I might be made a Car
dinal, beside offering me a bribe. I took no
notice of any of the fellow's letters, and
when be called he was sot admitted to the
house, and orders were given to the butler
never to admit him on any pretense what

The greatest and certainly the meet inter
esting event of the holiday season Is the
dolls' fancy dress ball beld at Fleishman &
Co. 's, Market street, and to which all til?
children of the two cities are invited. The
show window of this enterprising firm is the
realised eaibodimeatot the dreaaas of our
childhood The window is handsomely ar
ranged as a ballroom, with galleries extend
ing around the hall and filled with the elite
of doll society; The floor is occupied by
several groups of figures, and in the center is
old Mother Goose, that we all know so well
and that is so dear to the heart of every
child. The Great "Western Band, with
Prof. "Weise gracefully wielding his
baton, is stationed to the right
of the old lady and her goose,
a crowd of plantation minstrels are having
a jolly good time is the other end or the
bail and numerous fairy dancers are trip
pine the light fantastic toe and gliding
through the maxy figures of some fairy
dance. But the center of attraction is the
grand march. No wonder Mother Goose
looks .so complacent, as Little Bo Peep
makes her appearance, heading this won
derful procession, crook in band and sur
rounded by ber sheep. Then comes Silver
Hair, sleeping so sweetly in the little bed.
The three ugly bears have just fonnd her
and are standing round the bed looking at
her. "We can almost hear little Tiny
shrieking, "somebody has been lying in my
bed, arid-here-she-is-lying-still" listen to
the bell "ding dong, dell, yes, evi
dently Pussy's in the well;" "what
a naughty boy was that to drown
Door pussy cat" But, hark! don't
you hear a child crying? It is our old
friends Jack and Jill, and Jack has taken
bis usual tumble down the bill. Old Mother
Hubbard is at her cupboard, and ber doggie
stands waiting for bis bone. The Old
Woman That Lived in the Shoe and had so
many children she didn't know what to do,
is just as much crowded and in as close
quarters as ever. "Here the Conquering
Hero Comes," and who should it be but the
valiant Jack who has just killed his giant
Innocence protected is well illustrated by the
dear Little Babes in the Woods and their
attendant birds snugly covering them with
leaves. We know every little one that has
read this description is "Wishing, wishing,
wishing hard that she was in the midst of
the light and the music of this beautiful
ball," and we know if she is like
the good Cinderella "as busy as a bee from
morning till night," she will certainly get
her wish gratified, and mothers will make
sure that every little girl will accept her in
vitation, and get to the doll' ball, where
she will see Cinderella in all her glory.
Poor old Gullivar is still tightly bound, and
bis liliputian tormentors are having it all
their own way. "Once upon a time their
lived" the words naturally spring to our
lips as we see Little Bed Biding Hood, and
Icnow the wolf is jnst saying, "Good day,
wherfe are you going all alone by yourself,
pretty Miss? And but, but not least, in this
grand pageant is a scene irom Midsummer
Night'sldream with Queen Titania, Bottan
Puck and attendant fairies. Take it all in
all, we may never see its like again. Each
scene is arranged as a float, and the whole
procession is kept in continual motion by
some bidden machinery. Certainly, time,
money, patience and ingenuity have been
freely given, and the result leaves nothing
to be desired. See it by all means.
