Washington. Dec. 17. The bill which

tute was reported by the Benate com
mittee, to amend the Immigration laws

FLIRTATION WITH A SEQUEL.
Embarrassing Position of Two
Oakley, Mich. Humorists.
Oakley, Mich., Dec. 17. Tho Misses
Lee, of Oberlln, O., advertised for cor
respondents with a view to matrimony.
Fred Read and llorven Teachout, of
Oakley, replied, and the letters soon
flew thick and fast. At last the boys
proposed matrimony, provided the girls
would come here.
A few days ago the Misses Lee and
everal large trunks arrived. The girls
held interviews with the boys and were
greatly disappointed to learn that their
own accomplishments did not suit. The
girls went to Tachnut's house and de
clared that they would stay until the
young: men came to terms. The boys
consulted attorneys, and the whole vil
lage took sides.
The sisters left for home today,
threatening to bring suit. The boys
say they were only in fun.
BALL PITCHINQ MACHINE TRIED.
Professor Illntoa's Automatic Tosser
Proves a Success.
Princeton, N. J., Dec. 17. Professor
Hinton gave the first public exhibition
of his base ball pitching machine to
night In the gymnasium.
The gun, which is a short, breech
loading cannon, twenty-four Inches In
length, and placed upon a two-wheeled
carriage, was placed at one end of the
gymnasium. At the other was a net at
which the professor pitched several
balls from the cannon. All were suc
cessful, and the curves could be seen
as distinctly as if sent from the hand
of one of the best 'varsity twirlers.
In the lecture Professor Hinton told
of his early experiments with the ma
chine, how the ball was made to curve,
and how he expected that the national
game would receive a great change
through the agency of the mechanical
pitcher. . i
IRON AND STEEL TRADE. V
Th3 Market Unsettled hy the Break
in the Bessemer.
.. Pittsburg. Pa.. Dec. 17. The Ameri
can Manufacturer In Its edition tomor
row will say concerning the outlook in
the Iron and steel trade:
The break In the bessemer billet pool
seems to have unsettled the Iron and
steel market generally. In a great
many lines there la nothing definite
upon which to base prices, as the price
or oessemer steel is no one knows
where. It Is conceded that the price
Has dropped at least S3 per ton during
the past week, and still lower figures
are predicted. The probability Is that
steel rails will be put at $25, and bes
semer billets will be considerably be
low the pool rates
Our reports this week show little new.
New York reports prices somewhat Ir
regular, but without any serious break.
The western market Is featureless. At
Chicago, buyers are holding off, and Cin
cinnati reports some furnaces as will
Ins; to make concessions tor the next 60
days. The only orders coming In are
for quick shipment. Cleveland also re
ports a slow sale of pig Iron. The fin
ished lines are little or no better at
any point. The main trouble In the
market Is that excepted business does
not come, and new enterprises are still
Twenty Thousand Lest Men Employed
in 1896 Than In the
Harrlsburg, Pa., Dec. 17. From the
slate railway bureau comes the Intelli
gence that nearly 20,000 less men were
employed by the railroads of Pennsyl
vania In 1SU6 than during the year 1882.
The number of employes in 1891! were
21S.573; in 1893. 200,158; 1894, 176.228; 1895,
193,101; 1896, 194,324. The report states
that there are substantially a million
p&rsons sustained through the employ
ment given by the railroads of the
state. Had the percentage of Increase
between 1888 and 1892 been maintained,
the number of employes now would be
about 275,000. It Is probable that there
has been as much suffering among rail
way employes as among any of the oth
er classes of labor as thousands have
been absolutely thrown out of employ
ment. The dally compensation of the rail
way employes has been maintained,
even by roads that have gone into the
hands of receivers. The Pennsylvania
system employs 82,565 men in the state.
Eight companies employ about 77 per
cent, of all the railway men In the
state, and annually pay them $86,504,371
of which amount the Pennsylvania
pays $..1,579,909. In computing the num
ber of railway employes in the coun
try, it must be remembered that there
has been a slight Increase in railway
mileage, which of Itself would cause
an Increase in the number of employes.
The true test in making comparisons, Is
to compare one year with another with
reference to the number of men em
ployed per 100 miles of road. Such
comparison will disclose the fact that
while there has been a falling off In the
number of men, there has been a
greater percentage of decrease in the
number of men per 100 miles of rood.
In Pennsylvania in 1896 there were 993
employes per 100 miles of road.
C0R8ETT SIQNS THE PAPERS.
He Agrees to Fight Fltssimmons for
Purse of $15,000.
New York, Dec. 17. Dan Stuart met
James J. Corbett this afternoon at the
Police Gazette office for the purpose of
getting the pugilist's signature to
articles of agreement for a finish fight
with Bob Fitzsimmons. Stuart's prop
osition was a purse of $15,000 for a glove
contest to be fought in January, the
Texan agreeing to furnish a battle
ground wnere the fight can be held
without Interference, failing which he
will forfeit the purse.
Corbett considered the Texan's prop
osition favorably and both men cross
ed the ferry to Taylor's hotel in Jersey
City where the articles were signed.
This was done to avoid the penalty of
arrest which would be incurred by sign
ing articles for a prize fight in this
Stuart will endeavor to get FltZBlm
mons' signature immediately. For
obvious reasons the name of the place
where Stuart proposes to bring off the
battle was not divulged. The date of
the proposed battle hus been arranged
for March 17, next. The place of the
battle Is to be announced before Feb
Stuart Is to post a forfeit of $5,000
In the hands of Richard K. Fox, or Al
Smith, and Corbett and Fitzsimmons
must each post $2,000 as a guarantee
of good faith. George Slier, of Chicago,
Is named as referee. Corbett signed
the articles before he noticed that thev
reserved all privileges for Stuart and he
became somewhat excited when he
thought of the Klnetescope privileges.
After some reflection he finally said:
"I would not change the articles for
one million dollars, but If I find out
Julian or Fitzsimmons get any share of
privileges money I will kick for my
Corbett also stated that he would
like to have an additional clause in
serted calling for a $10,000 side bet In
order that he might put himself right
before the public on Fitzsimmons'
statements, but stated that as far as
he was concerned himself, he was ready
to fight. the Australian for a dime or
for nothing. Although for obvious rea
sons no place was mentioned for the
holding of the fight It Is not unlikely
that the rendezvous will bp In Mexico.
Stuart stated that he would wait
until Fitzsimmons arrived In this city
to get his signature to the articles.
The Australian Is due here In about ten

Decision of Judge Simonton in the
Lancaster Insuranca Case.
Harrlsburg, Pa., Dec. 17. Tvhen tlTe
Lancaster County Mutual Live Stock
and Chattel Theft Insuranca company
was declared Insolvent In 1892 and W.
B. Given, of Columbia, appointed re
ceiver, he was authorized by the court
to lay an assessment of twelve per
cent, on all amounts insured In the
company. Quite a number of policy
holders paid this assessment. J. M.
Rettew resisted and Judge McPherson
decided on the trial that his policy was
not assessable, which the Supreme
Court sustained. Attempts to collect
further assessments were abandoned.
Tluwe who paid their assessments
claimed that they should be returned
and filed exceptions to the report of
the auditor appointed to distribute bal
ance in hands of the receiver. Judge
Simonton handed down an opinion, to
day sustaining the exceptions.
RAIL RATES REDUCED.
Carnegie Steel Company Seek to
New York. Dec. 17. It was announced
here today that the Carnegie Steel com
pany has reduced the price of steel
rails from $28 to $25 per ton. For a
year past the price has been $28. The
object of the reduction, it Is said, to
Induce the railroad lines to buy more
freely. The reduction follows yester
day's meeting In this city of the steel
rail pool, which President Lelshman, of
the Carnegie company attended.
During 1896 the consumption of steel
rails. It Is reported, will not exceed
800,000 tons, against 2,000,000 tons the
ordinary previous annual consumption.
The steel rail pool which caused the
advance In the price, was formed in
November, 1893. Steel rails at that
time were $20 a ton. The pool has
since gradually advanced the price to
