chief competitor, prwluced five million

her product of 1S50. and still less than
half the product of the Vnited States.
Truly, tho time is well called the steel

century is np longer qualified to give
titular distinction to the second.
"Tlie production of cheap steel b

it into universal use in the older appli

lias encouraged the development of
newer necessities until the ingenuity of

Shortening Their Line.
Oilicials of the Lackawanna railroad
are straining every nerve to put their
road in position to handle the Immense
ti utile that goes west, to Chicago and
lireat inipiovement is being made on
the main line from Port Jervis to the
Delaware Water flap, by shortening
Die line, nutting down tho gradients
ind increasing tlie track facilities. Tho
contract work for the construction of a
cut-off line from Waterloo to the
Delaware Water Ciap will soon be un
der way. This line will start lrom a
point a short distance west of Water
loo near tho cut, and run thence some
ilistance, cutting through a corner of
UutherforU preserve to the Allumuehy
mountain, through which u tunnel
.'.SOU feet long will lie bored; thence in
11 direct line to Water (Jap, where IL
will again take up the main line.
Tlie scheme, while It cuts 01V Haek
ettstown and- AVashlgnton from the
main Hue of the road, also lops oil
eleven miles to Jluffalo, and reduces
the gtadients from eighty feet to the
mile to twenty no Inronsldurublo Item
In railroad service. A tlrst class train
servieo will be maintained on the Mor
ris and Essex division, however, and
Washington and llu.ekellstown will
lot surfer materially fioni the ehnnge.
Tho building -of this "eui-off" will en
tail a gerut amount of labor and an
mmense expenditure of money. Ho
tides tunneling the Allumiieliy one and
ine-tenth miles, the country lying west
if the mountain is very hilly, and n
lumber of deep euls and heavy "tills"
vlll have to bo nmde. When eomplet
d, this "cut-off" will give tlie Lacka
nnnu much the shortest route from
s.'ew York to Bulfalo and the west, and
1 Iso materially reduce the running
lino between tho two points.
When the P.in-Aineucan exposition
mens at UuffuJo next week, the Lack
twunna railroad will have u novel ex
libit in the alu nil fuel 111 . building. It

Tlie engine will be especially painted
ind decorated for tho exhibit, unci will

passenger coach has been shout of its

;l.ty of the picturesque points of Iiit

The plctuies are genuine photo

RUggestlous tind idens advanced by W

Strike at the Blast Furnace.
A number of brnkemen on the small
engines run by the Lackawanna Iron
and Steel company conducted a strike
Saturday nt the blast furnace, which
about holds the record for celerity in
tho matter of settlement.
They struck at 7 o'clock Saturday
niornliis. met Foreman Umlch the same
afternoon, and decided to go back to
work. Komo were back nt the works
yesterday morning. Tlie others will re
sume work today. ,lt seems that, since
the firemen at the South mill went on
strike. Mr. Hltick, whA has charge of
the blast furnace, has dally sent' a. car
down to the mill with Importations of
hands to help mil.
The car makes two trips, one for the
day and one for the night shift. The
striking firemen roundly "scabbed" the
hrakemeu for carrying their success
01.1 nnd hence lestilted the strike, ac
cording to the company ofllcluls. When
the men went out Saturday, Mr. Itlnck
look off liN eoaf and manned an en
gine, the engineer followed suit, as did
the for much, and work went on btlsk
ly. Later in tlie day men were found
lo take the strikers' places.
Meeting of Switchmen.
A sectet meeting of the switchmen
employed by the Delaware, Lackawan
na and Western llnilroud company
was held yesterday afternoon In Econ
omy hall, but none of those present
gave out anything about the delibera
tions of the session. The rumors to
tlie effect that the meeting was or
dered for tlie purpose of ngaln causing
a cessation of labor seems to havo
been entirely unrounded, as the busi
ness transacted was merely nuititie
work of a regular meeting.
Oirand Master Ilawiey left the city
Friday and was not in attendance at
the meeting. Chairman Timlin, when
usked by a Tribune man whether any
action which might result lit a strike
had been taken, lefusod to answer.
It was staled, however, that the ilu
grant reports circulated before the
meeting were groundless.

A 25 horse-power Crocker &. Wheeler
electric motor will be used in driving
this1 new- piece of machinery, and a
similar motor has also been placed in
the cabinet shop, of .' horse-power, for

New Yoik, April 2S. The llov. Dr.
Clint If H. Parkhurst pt cached today
at the Mudlsoti Square Presbyterian
church on topics connected with his
leceiit trip south, lie also made an
Incidental reply to Governor Candler,
who was teporlod us having denounced
those northerners who took an Inter

Dr. JMrkhurit said that the patty
of northern people who recently made
the trip referred to did It not because
l hey had tiny special interest In the
south as n distinct section but because
they weie conscious or the unity which
makes the north and south niembeis
of each other. The conference held
at Winston Salem In North Catollna,
he said, was characterized by the ut
most frankness on both sides and yet
fioni first to Inst not an embittering
word was spoken, lteferrlng to Gov
ernor Candler's criticisms. Dr. Park
huist said they would not hnvo been

sonnel of Ihe conference or for live
minutes inspired the atniospheie which
the conference exalted."
deferring lo the estimation in which
the people of the south and those of
the north hold the negio. Dr. Park
lii.tst said: "Tlie southerner does not
like the negro any better than tlie
average northerner does u:id the two
carry themselves toward the negio
Willi just, about the same amount of
Chribtiun consideration only of the
two, the southern white man has per
haps; this advantage, that lie does not
mi'ke quite so llamboyant a pretense
of loving the negro as his northern
conferee does. The southern white
man dislikes the neirio and owns up
lo it. The white man in the north
dislikes the negro and lies about it."
The preacher said further: "The un
dlHcrimlimtlng act by which tho no.
gioes had confeired upon them the
light lo vote, was one of these blun
ders that it is not easy to escape from
after once it Is committed, but which
il would sceni wu" ought to have had
northern statesmanship sutliciently In
telligent to prevent.
"The counsel that both the northern
and the southern fi lends of the negro
are now giving him is to keep qplet
upon the whole suffrage matter, to
keep out nf politics, not to talk about
the constitution, not to Insist upon his
rights, but t attend industi iously to
the work of getting himself well ready
-which he Is not now for what God
and the country and the future may
have- in store for him."
Dr. Pa'khurst closed by the following
general refeience to present conditions
among southern people: "The south
docs not altogether love us but no one
there hates us nearly ns much as It

AUSTRIA AND MEXICO FRIENDS
Mexico Also About to Resume Diplo
n.i K-aliwie Wire from 'Ihe As-(ni.iti'il l'u-.
Washington, April 2S. Complete rap
prochement between the governments
of Austria and Mexico has been
brought about, and each country is
about to send a minister to the other.
This terminates an international es
trangement dating from the days when
.Maximilian sought to gain a foothold
in Mexico and lust his life In the ad
venluie. Kvor since then Austria and
Mexito have suspended all llltercouiso
with each other, commercially and
politically. Recently, however, friendly
overtures have been made to termin
ate tin- estrangement, and have re
sulted In a satisfactory agreement be
tween ihem by which their old rela
tions of friendship will be resumed.
A hill has pnssed the .Mexican con
giess i veiling the fact of a rupprorhe
nii'Ut and providing for a minister to
Austria at a salary of SlC.OnO. Austria
will lake similar action by sending a
nilnlsti r lo Mexico, and this will close
the long and historic separation.
Tho Mexican government has taken
slops to lesiime dlptonmtlo coininunl
cation Willi South American countries,
the llrst move In that direction being
the tippoliitiuC'iU of a Mexican minister
to the Argentine Republic. For mnnv
years there litis been no diplomatic In
letcoiirse between Mexico nnd her sis
ter republics on the Southern cnntln

decently, however. Argentina made
a friendly move by accrediting a min
ister both to Washington and to Mex
ico, nnd t'rliguay has taken siinilur
action. Til" selection of tlie city of
Mexico as the place for holding the
Congress of Anuulcan UepubllcA has
had a further liilluouco In Inducing
Mexico to extend her relations with
Southern countries, As a icsult of
this sentiment a minister to Argentina
has been named, nnd onu to TJiuguay
will probably be appointed before
