No discusaion was indulged in relative to the-reduction of the steel-workor's iscale, and i^ is considered just now-as a purely : economic measure concerning the steel moa o.'cclusively, and not a proper subject for the deliberations of tho association generally. Tho result of the meeting was an undoi-staud-ing that a mutual effort would bo made by the manufacturers to sustain present card : rat««.

St. Louis, Doc. 8.—In Barr & Co.'s, the largcHt retail dry-goods establishment in St Louie, Joseph B. CuU, a salesman for the wholdsale dry-goods house of Leubrie & Co., tried to kill Thomas Carijening yesterday, also a dry-goods Bale8maa,,and in the employ of Nugent & Co. The weapon used was a revolver, tho bullet from which missed C.arpen-Ing and grazed Uie head of a young man named ' Willi;im Johnson. Then it lodged in the coiling. Cull was arrested and tho charge of assault with intent to kill entered against him. Carponing, speaking of tho affair, said: /-I was stiinciing-iii our store (Nugent's), when Cull camci up and insisted that I should accompany him to Barr's to accuae his wife to her face of having sat in a young man's lap. I rofusod to do so,;8ayiug-thatI could not leave my work, and ho then tow a revolver and, pointing it at me, told mo that he would kill me if I re-" fused to accompany him. I went, of course, and when I got mto Barr's ho told me to march dowu staira to the basement, where his wife was employed. I refusoil, and called for as-siHtancc. Baffled in his purpose, he, after "ex-^ changing a few words witli one of the clerks, agaiu drew his pistol and pointed it at my head: >'I grasped his hand, and as I did so tho : pistol was dischai'ged and.tho ball missed mo, IJijii.a,olerkiiamedJohnson., Tha.man, was about"to nre againrbut • arr."n'imauia -cau.L^ht him from behind by the shoulders and,; Uini^ng him ngaiiisttho - counter and bales of goods,, wxostud the weapon from Ms hand and the ' ......  ;ainBt him of taking liberties denies that ho  LOi eby saved my life, li) regard to the charge made a; having accused Cull's wife of ' witliyouijg men, Carpening saiil anythian; that could rolloc any Wiiy. He says on tho conti-aiy, that 'she is a hard-working, industrious aud virtuous woman, and a true wifa Mrs. Cnll'says there haK been trouble between her and her husb.ind for some tima ¿..:She mot .the latter in his cell andj in her interview ' wth him, upbraided him . for not • standing by her in a manly way,, as .a husband ouijht when his wife is wrongrully accused. Sho . losod by sayi ng: "If you hji d, been the m»n yon ought to have beeui you would have made Tom take back what he said, but you entMuraged him in" it" The wifo . turned: several times to go away,. but yretuTned ; and asUed about a, hiwyer and lusf'supper,-and having beon promised by the- sergeant that later in the day sho shonid' havo.an onportu-nity to sse'hor husband, she wont away. After his wife had gone, Cull said that Carpenirig's slander had brooded on his .-mind, and ■that yesterday morning he -.-went - up to;Nugont's and insisted that Carponing should come down to:Mra. Cull, at Barr's, and own np thathe had lied. Carpening did not want to do this, but ho persuaded him - at the muz-¿le.of "a piatoL In Barr's Carpening slnnk aside to tell the floor-walker that CuU had a pistol, and.was about to shoot him.andvthen Cnll,contimied: shot at him-^snot at him twice."

This afternoon Mr. Mills, in reply to Mr. Trade's questions, said that ho had had interviews. with his own witnesses, but hadn't con- , fined them to places outside the court room." Mr. Trude waa then sworn, and made a "state- " ment as to his intoi-views with Theresa,'the, only one of any length being that in which he. was urging her to take the witness-stand. An, attachment waf thou issued for a boy named George Tavlor, who was not present, and ilr.; Trude said ho woidd • doso whoa tho boy has testified.  After the examination of three important witnesses, tho defense rostod^their case.  Tho prosecution in: rebuttal called Mrs. Stiles, the mother of tho murdered man. Her testimony'in substance was as follows.  "I first saw Theresa Sturla, the defendant, onthe25fh of August, ISSI. That was the day before the death of my husband. My bus-: band was very ill then—dying, as f supposed, and I had held myself in readiness to corno -hero for three : days. I started from Dixon July 25. „1 found the house on Wabaah avenue; rang: the bell, and the defendant appeared. I would Uko to state here as tho reason why I did not corno to nyr husband sooner, that I had said to him: ••'If you ever go to that flat where that woman ia. 1 will never be your wifo again," and I did not come until they tolcgrapbed to mo to' como: I mot hor at tho door, and as'itcd if my husband,.: Mr. Stilea,- was there. I had dotorminod not to allow this woman to t-j,lk to me aud to keep her at a distance. She appeared very shabbily attired, and led me to my^husband, and I saw that ho was in a dying cou'ditioo. This woman diaajipuared "She went about tho house and I suijpoao. in order to show off her voice, she was singing. She was there when Dr. Ingals came, -and afterward went out for-some" medicine. She seemed to exhibit a liitlo tim-,: idity. She didn't seem to want to moot me, at tho same time my sou came down and asked ? mo to go ont to lunch. I-was going to state : Dr. Ingals came.

Mike has been in the employ of the telegraph company since he was old enough ; to can-y dispatches, and nearly all of this timo;^ he had been in thé Oil exchange at Oil City carrying mesBiigea to and from the brokers. The large operators in petroleum send; their dispatches in cipher. The boy -had carried so many messages - sent by the Standard;, from its headquarters at Cleveland that he had unraveled' the mvsSo oharaclors, and could read them like a printed page. . Just prior to the recent extraordinary advance in • ' 'when the price jumped  cents to $L35, Keat ing carried a numtjor of telegrams to tho Standard's brokers . ordering them ^ to buy largo bloiîks of oil. Tho monopoly had laid its: plans to boom the market and its Oil City brokers were ordered to buy everything. "Buy half a million barrels," "buv a million barreTs," ^buy t\TO million barrels'' were tlie way these ordera cama They were riddles to all bu t the brokers who received them, and Mike Keating, themessençer-boy who deliveretl them. Eentiag.Tilthougha, mere boy, knew, something extraordinary ¡was soon to happen. The markot^ which had been like a stagnant pool for a year, was already creeping up the scale. Orders for im-meuse blocks of oil were still coming from the Staudard'a ' he idqu-vi-tera. Thero was no timo lo tose. But what could a boy do witli-out a dollar in his. pocket'/ • Keating went to one of. the largest operatora.on the - floor of tho exchangij,. outside of the Standard's aganta, and - told him he had a "pointer." Tiia broker laughed at bini ; ; The bov's earneatness finally commanded attention, and the broker agreed to his proposition, which was that the broker should furnish money for a "deal," if. he was satisfied with the ;informiition, and divide the profits equally. Then the mossongor"told.;the broker wliat he had,. and of the telegrams he had been carrying from thè Standard's Cleveland office. The next messase that fell into; the bo3''8 hands was carried secretly to the broker's; and translated. It was an order to buy? every tlîing that was offered. • The broker probably Bwallowed-to keep his heart down; anyway,he wout back to tho exchange and began to buy.

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
