251, In 1SSS. 2CL The total amount of the capi-
j. tal stock van in, as represented by the reports
of 48S8, Is 775,066.S15 60. an Increase of $26,375,-

$55,533.K7 96. The total cost of the. roads, in-
clcdli.e the equipment, is shown to be S1.06S,.
03163647, which indicates that the operations

The total mileage of the roads for 1SS7 was
reported at 8,714.84; m 1SSS at 10,805.11. Ine
total number of passengers carried in 1SS8 was
99,819,869, an increase of 7,397,745 orer the pre

SOME COilPAEATITE riOUKES.
The following table exhibits a comparative
Statement for the years 1S87 and 1S83 of street
passenger railways, on the question of capital
stock, Indebtedness, cost of roads and equip
ment, mileage, number of passencers carried,
expenses, receipts, etc It will be obserrcd
that the report for 1888 ioaicatesan apparent
reduction in the cost of the roads and equip
ments, which, of course, is erroneous. The
'error arises from the fact that a number of
companies failed to state in their reports' the
cost of road and equipment.

v The same cumber of canal companies make
report in 1SSS that reported inj87, to wit. nine
companies, and they show a capital stock of
50,958,203, an increase of 137,500 over 1SS7.
There is also an increase in the funds and un
funded debt to the amount of 461,253 11 over
1SS7. The total amount of the cost and equip
ment of the canals Is placed at $30,258,391 36;
'the total mileage at 778. There is a marked de
crease in the amount of freight carried, as the
treport for 1SS7 fixed the number of tons at
9,037,941, while the reports of 1SS8 show but
7.574.726. The expenses for 1887 were $L038.
817 41; for 18S8, $923,734 54. There appears to be,
however, a marked increase in receipts, as the
total amount given in 1S87 was $2,C7o.349 09,
vhile in 1SSS it is reported at $3,235,466 59, an
increase of $560,117 5a

MARRIAGE IS A FAILURE.
'A iAwrenceville Man Sued for Desertion
After Applying for Divorce.
' fcThat "marnagisa failure." was demon
jhstrated before Alderman Doughty last night
un'one instance at least. The suit which
-was called up for trial was that of Annie
Schitzke, ho charged her husband with
desertion. On December 10 Carl Schitzke
-was married by Alderman Porter to the
prosecutrix, and took his new wed wife to
live on Thirty-ninth street.
At the hearing last night, Mrs. Sehitzke,
testified that since her marriage with the
..defendant the latter had not contribnted a
cent to her support, nor remained at home
wi h her, and had threatened her life.
.The defendant admitted the assertions of
his wife, and stated that he worked at Hill's
planing mill, on Twentv-sixth street, at
51 25 a day. He said that he had been
iorced to marry her, as she had entered suit
before Alderman Porter for breach of prom
ise, and as a compromise he married her.
The defendant was committed to jail in
default of 5300 bail for trial at court He
has already commenced proceedings in court
for a divorce.

Steel Trade Hustle.
The steel market ot the country is to ex
perience another revolution. Pittsburg and
Indiana capitalists, who represent $15,000,
000, ate backing the enterprise. Patents have
been secured on a process by which open
bearth steel is to be placed on the market at
55 to 56 per ton cheaper than it is at present.
T. a. Blair, Jr., formerly "superintendent
of the Spang Steel andiron Company, and
I". Protzman, two of the. persons interested,
will arrive from Indianapolis to-day. where
a test was made in the works of the Premier
Steel Company on Sunday, Advices re
ceived in this city indioate that the new
product will mark another epoch in the his
tory cf steel. The process will be operated
bv the Premier Steel Company under s rpy
altr. Those who are interested in the syndicate
are Colonel Bay, of Indianapolis; the De
Panws, of New Albany; the Steel and Iron
Improvement Conmanv, and two or three
other iron men of this city, Telegrams
were exchanged yesterday between Mr.
Blair and the Pittsburg people in regard to
the test, and everyone interested seems per
fectly satisfied that the process is a success.
, The Premier Steel Company, of Indiana
polis, purchased the old Indianapolis Boil
ing Mill plant some time ago, and only
recently began operations. They now hove
a capacity ot 100 tons ner day. It is the
intention to enlarge the plant and they
will devote their whole time to the produc
tion of steel bv the new urocess.
Jusf what effect this will have oo the
other varieties of steel is a conjecture as yet,
although it is quite sure it will stir up a
lively competition with the manufacturers
of Bessemer steel. Open hearth steel sells
now for 53 more than Bessemer. If the cost
of the open hearth products can be reduced
55 or 56, as is stated that it can be, the
logical conclusion is that the Bessemer mar
ket will be affected.
An Alleged Offer to Pareunia a Mayor's
Teto for 8130,000.
St. Louis. December 30. The Tost Bis
patch to-night prints a page of sensational
statements and interviews with reference to
the M-calIed "Bobber Gas Bill," in -which
the claim is made that Ed. Butler, a well
known local lobbyist, who bears the title of
"boss of the General Assembly," offered to
seenre the veto of the gas bill by the Mayor,
through the influence of Hon. John B.
O'Meara, Mayor Noonan's nearest friend.
It is claimed that the offer was made to
James Campbell, the broker, who holds
5300,000 gas stock, and that Mr. Butler's
figures for a veto were 5150,000.
Butler denies the story, so does O'Meara,
while Campbell is non-committal. The
Mayor has not yet signed nor has he vetoed
the bill. When he acts there trill likely
be some startling developments.
HATE STARTED DP ANEW,

son A New Contrlvnure.
The Edgar Thomson Steel Works at
Braddock started up in all departments
alter a two weeks' shut down for repairs.
When the blooming mill hands turned in,
six men on each tarn were notified that
tneir services were no longer required in
that department, owing to a patent device
of the late Captain Jones', for charging and
drawing blooms being brought into use.
Other furnaces will be fitted with the con
trivance, when other men will be sus
pended. The first day's work was marked by what
may prove to be a fatal accident. Andy
Moore, a brakeman. while engaged in the
yards, was struck by a dinkey engine and

oldest boy was 11 and the youngest 8 years old.
Tbey were out trying to kill birds with an air

was a large rabbit. One boy shot at It and
luckily hit it Imhe eye. and apparently stunned
and confnsed it, as it did pot attempt to rnn

killing it, when they took clubs and soon laid
the feline low. It weighed 27 ponnds.

to catch a dog that bad been killing sheep and
