Boston Daily Globe (Newspaper) - August 15, 1882, Boston, Massachusetts VOL. XXII—NO. 46. BOSTON. TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 15, 1882. PRICE TWO CENTS.ARABI AND EGYPT.The Arabian Leader Promised a Conditional Pardon.Great Activity in Building Earth works Near Cairo.An Outbreak at Port Said Looked for—In General. [By Cable to The Boston Globe.l /tT.BTixnm. August 14.—Arabi Pasha hat Men teml-offlclally informed by tho Sultan that he will grant bim a free pardon if be renders immediate submission to the Turkish commissioners. It is thought that Arabi feels himself too strong to accept this proffer. AU the able-bodied men in Cairo have been compelled to work on the earthwork fortifications which Arabi is constructing for the defence of the city. Arabi and his colleagues have decided to make a final stand at Cairo. There is much excitement at Port Said. An ontbreak is thought possible at any moment. The ships are ready tor action. One hundred rounds of ammunition are served nightly. The steamship Palmyra has arrived here with sixteen-pounder Dattery. Last evening some Shote were exchanged, and several prisoners were captured near the canal. There were no casualties. Lake Maroons, near Mlllaha Junction, is fast drying np. People are thus enabled to go from Kafr-ed-Dauar beyond the reach of the guns of onr outposts. A captain In the Egyptian army, supposed to be the bearer of despatches to Arabi Pasha, has been captured at Suez. A number of Arabi’s documents, supposed to be important, were found in his possession. The Bittern bas returned from bar mission to Jaffa. Some Sheikhs In the vicinity of Jerusalem have been arrested. A man implicated in the massacre of June ll who is on trial before tbe native tribunal, has confessed his guilt, and declares he would do the same again if opportunity offered. Lieutenant H. T. Smithborrieu of H, M. S. In vincible has undertaken a remarkable enterprise, to be carried out tonight, the particulars of which I am not yet at liberty to furnish. MUSSULMAN JURISTS. Arabi a Reb.I sad Tot Not * Rebel—An Esplai.tl.a filven tbe Dalton. Constantinople, August 14.—The Mussulman jurists, whom the Sultan frequently consults, ex plain that Arabi Pasha, in to tar as he disobeyed tbe caliph, is a rebel, and may be unceremoniously treated as such, but in so far as he bas been a do fender of tho aggressive designs of christians, be bat merely fulfilled the dutlos of a goo i Mussel man, and consequently tbe caliph cannot make common cause with England. Tbe Sultan may punish Arabi Pasha if some act of rebellion is proved against him, but he must not associate himself with those who wish to crush Arabi Pasha as the defender of Islam. A correspondent •ays this will greatly influence the Turkish military action. TRE KHEDIVE INTERVIEWED. The Statement That Arabi Mas Offered Terms of Sarreeder Declared False. New York, August 14.—The Herald also prints the following interview with the Khedive: Correspondent—"Is it true that Arabi offers terms of surrender ?" The Khedive—"No. Arabi sent me a message that it was impossible to recognize me as Khedive while the English troops were in Egypt and that it would he better that all Egypt siiould he in ashes than in the bands of the English. Arabi forgets that had the Egyptian troops obeyed my orders not to abandon the forts and to remain in Alexandria, the English landing in Alexandria would have beeu unnecesary,,r Correspondent—"W hat mission has M. de Las •cps to Arabi?” The Khedive—"I whs not consulted on tbe matter. Arabi has given a safe conduct to M. de Lesseps," and be informs me that he expects M, de Lesseps to meet him tonight at Damannur." Correspondent—"Have Osman Refki and the Circassian officers who have just arrived from Stamboul brought your highness any special message from the Sultan?” Khedive—"No; I shall immediately form a body guard with these Circassians as officers, and thus form the nucleus of a new Egyptian army.” Tbe Khedive spoke most warmly oi the loyalty shown him by General Stone, and praised the on orgy of Consular Agent Long. SOUDAN THREATENING. ■Ignlflc#at Messages from the Gsveraor af Rornn to the Forte Alarm tbe Sultan. Constantinople, August 14.—Osman, the ruler of Borun, a state in Soudan, bas sent a special emissary to Constantinople, with a declaration that he refuses any longer to recognize th* Sultan aa tbe caliph, because of his proposal to send troops to tight against the Mahometans under Arabi. This declaration, it is admitted, has caused a great deal of anxiety to the Torte. Tbe emissary hearing the message has been bere three days, hut tbe object or biA mission was only made known outside of the palace this morning. The emissary will return to Cberiva, the capital of Borun, with secret instructions from the Torte. Osman's action is the first announced from those states in Central Africa and the Egyptian provinces of Soudan, through widen a holy war nas been preached, both by emissaries from Arabi and by followers of Kl Mehdi, the alleged Mahometan Messiah. Under Osman's control Is a territory of about 160 miles square, lying bet seen tbe mountains bt Bairat, from wiience spring the head waters of the Blue Nile and tile Bahr el Abiad or White Nile. It was formerly an Abyssinian province and is situated about 200 miles west or Uondar. Altnough claimed by Egypt, yet so distant are these petty possessions from the seat of government at Cairo that the governors are practically independent and recognize tne Khedive’s supremacy more as a matter of convenience than of obligation. Great significance is attached to this action of Osman, which, it is believed, will be followed by similar declarations on the part or the rulers of nearly all the states aloug the Nile, and in which tne religious uprising now led by El Mebdi had its origin. It is understood bere that reports sent out by Arabi are implicitly believed by tbe Mahometans along the entire Nile region, while tbose from tbe Porte are distrusted as either English inventions or as in English interests. ENGLAND IN EGYPT. Ber Action Censored by the Snltaa's Envoy. Constantinople, August 14.—The statement drawn up by Le bib Effendi, by command of the {Sultan, begins    with    affirming    that last    year "Achmet Arabi, then a colonel in the Egyptian army, was displeased at finding that In all the public offices of Egypt there was a great number of foreigners—especially English and French— who enjoyed    extravagant    salaries    but who did no    work.    These    gentlemen,    supported by their    consuls    and by    the controllers, eventually acquired very great influence in Egyptian administration. Arabi, troubled ’ay this state of affairs, beg iii by forming a party, and said that the Khedive should take necessary steps to put an end to a state of things that had in no way resulted from any stipulation or agreement, for as to that matter Arabi always recognized me respect due to conventions." Circumstances attending Arabi’s arrest, liberation, and the change of ministry are then reviewed. It Is stated that Arabi wanted to send several Circassian officers to Soudan. They did not wish to go, aud remonstrated in such a way Chat Arabi thought they pad designs on his lite, and had them put tu prison. Finally they were banished to Constantinople by the Khedive. *»It was in reference to this matter, which bad no international or Important signification, that France and England be- fan to send their ships to Alexandria. ho imperial government several times had pointed out to these powers tnat the sending of fleets would aggravate the situation, and, perhaps, trouble the tranquillity of the country. All legitimate steps led to no result. The presence of the fleets snd the simple dispute between a Maltese and at donkey boy brought about the regrettable events at Alexandria. Everybody agrees that there was no prcmedita-tlon on the part of the Egyptians, cli ac mo Arabs only fought with sticks and that the Egyptian army—considered ss a rebellious body—en-ergeticaily acted in suppressing the massacre. It has also been proved that among tho Egyptian dead and wounded many bore the marks or bayonet wounds.” It is then set forth that the Khedive with his cabinet aud the commissioner of His Majesty the Sultan took steps at once to restore order tnd discover aud punish tbe guilty. "We see,” concludes the statement, "mat the Khedive and hie cabinet manage to establish order and prevent emigration, hut certain instigations and the refusal of tbe consuls to take part In juking the guilty proves th* existence of a ti a ti gilt lo not Allow (bo Egyptian ques tion to be closed. When all was over and tile army had submitted Admiral Seymour assumed a threatening attitude. At first he insisted that the fortifications wore being repaired. Tbe Khedive aud Arabi Fasna officially declared that, although England made military preparations in England, and even on board the ships-of-war in Alexandria harbor, the Egyptian government and army, who only desired to maintain the status quo, made no preparations whatever. After this assurance Admiral Seymour returned to the same theory; that la to say. he deolared that unless preparations ceased within twenty-four hours de would open fire on the forts. Tne Kkeoive and the cabinet again reiterated their declaration, and proposed to Admiral Seymour that they should go together over tbe fortifications in order to prove that no preparations were being made. The admiral relined, and after twenty-four hours had elapsed sent an ultimatum, In which be required that the fortifications should he dismantled and surrendered to him within twentv-four Hours' delay. The Khedive nastened to show that ne could not accede to this iuvltstion, for he did .not understand tbe motive for it, and tbe admiral, four hours before the expiration of tne delay fixed by himself, trampling under font the principle of individual rights, began the bombardment. There is even another (act which is moat remarkable. Not only did the English and French refuse to send delegates to the tribunal iii order to judge the persons implicated in the Alexandria riot, but during the bombardment tbe English admiral fired upon tbe boat that contained the prisoners arrested after the Alexandria riot. This resulted in the death of some of tbe prisoners and tne flight of the others. One can well imagine that Admiral Seymour a guns were not fired with tbe object of liberating prisoners, but with an object for the moment unknown. TUE SULTAN SPEAKS. He States the Cease of the War, and Holds England Responsible. New York, August 14.—Tne Herald this morning publishes an interview betwoen its correspondent at Constantinople ana the Sultan, at which the latter ia said to have used tbe following language; “The situation In Eeypt was not serious until tbe presence of the fleets precipitated a flairs and exasperated the people. Arabi'* party then took advantage or the situation to inflame the populace. The original cause of the trouble I will explain. There have been in all the Egyptian public departments a great number of English aud French employes appointed mid kept in place by the influence vt English and French controllers and consuls. These employee profited enormously by the abuse of their places, which they held to the exclusion of the Arabs. They constantly extended their own privileges and increased their profits, until Arabi, who was then a colonel in the service, complained to the Khedive. In this way a breach occurred between Arabi and the Khedive, and difficulties arose which might easily have been arranged had not the appearance of tbe fleets aroused native reeling and destroyed my plans tor the reconciliation of the opposing factions and peaceable settlement of tne troubles. I had already sent to Alexandria a commission including Dervisch Pasha. Achmet Essad Effendi, Lehib Effendi ana Cedri Effendi, to act as arbitrators, but The Action of th* English rendered their errand useless. Lehlb Effendi, who has just 'returned, will give you a written statement of the case more at length. Tne bombardment was most cruel and unjust. The English forbade the Egyptians to fortify their own works, and then, while defenceless, opeued fire upon them. This was an unjust and inhuman act, and contrary to the law of nations. Th* English claim that they were dealing with rebels. In thst case it was England’s duty to inform tne sovereign power ana to leave tbe settlement to that authority, instead of taking tbe law into ber own bands, which she had no right to do. The English say there ts no justice among us, yet let us look at ireland. England’s Irish subjects are simply demanding a right which here In Turkey is universally granted to the people. Such troubles as the Irish agrarian riots would be impossible in Turkey. England boasts of her superior justice, yet we have what she does not grant to bur subjects, viz., an equal laud law, under which farnu-r* ana even (arm laborers aro protected in their rights. When the Roumanians obtained tho Dobrudacba they continued the use of Th* Turkish Law la Regard ta Real Property. I am sure that when all the facts are known in America and other impartial countries the action of England will be condemned as arbitrary and unjust. If England's object is to protect her own interests in India she has taken the wrong coarse. She will never lie allowed by other powers to occupy Egypt alone. France would insist upon the maintenance of a free neutral province or a joint occupation. In either case there would be more danger to the canal than under the Turkish rule. Every Englishman who bas any Drains in bis bead understands that tbe interest of England is in the maintenance of the Turkish power. It has been the intention and desire or the Turkish government to maintain the status quo in Egypt. It was endeavoring to bring about a peaceful settlement of local differences when the fleets appeared ana precipitated a crisis.” "BLOOD ON THE MOON.'* Nations Liable to be Involved In an Egyptian War Besides England. A war In Egypt, to be undertaken by European troops, whether the Turks go or not, is now inevitable, writes the Con8tautiuople correspondent of the New York Sun. The first question is by what European troops, lf any. besides tbe English. The French have long hesitated, afraid lest by actively taking arms against tne Arabs in Egypt they should produce a conflagration which would spread into Tunis and Algeria. Tripoli would certainly rise, aud from me shores of the Atlantic iu Morocco to the Persian gulf the AraLs of the desert would be in active campaign. Moreover, Arabi nas assured the French government that so long as they do not take part against him the Suez canal will be respected, ana in M. de Lesseps Arabi has a most powerful ana influential advocate in favor of non-intervention by the French. Still it will be difficult for that nation to stand on one side and see all the fighting done in Egypt by the English; and there can be no doubt that Prince Bismarck would glad y see a French army occupied in Eiypt, as it woald leave him free to carry out his policy in Europe. Another power whose Intervention has been suggested at the conference is that of Italy. The experience of Italy during tho Crimean war, when without any adequate reason she took part with the allies against Russia, and laid the foundations of bet siib'-quent progress in the ranks of nations, encourages her to a similar course of action now. The only obstacle is the intense animosity which exists between Itaiy aud France, arising out of me conduct of the latter in regard to Tunis. It would lie difficult for French and Italian troops to fl^lit side bv side with any cordiality in any part of Africa. Yet, if there wt re to be a French Intervention, it would be in tbe interest of England that there should tie also one on tho part of Italy, as the entente between tne English and Italian contingents would be much closer than between tne French and Italian, and in the event of the differences which would he certain to arise subsequently Italy would probably side with England. She would, however, take part in these operations only with tile approval ot Germany. There Is another power which Is also extremely anxious to participate In military movements in Egypt, and that is Greece. She Is young, ardent and ambitious; flushed with the success of her last territorial acquisition of Thessaly, longing for an excuse to Invade Glarus, to assist me insuriectiouary movement in Crete, and to obtain rights in Egypt, whore she hag a large population of Greek subjects who have been the numerous victims of a-snssinatiou, and furnish her with a fair excuse for making a claim to be allowed to share in military operations in that country. Here, then, are materials sufficient for European and Asiatic discord, no matter what position Turkey may finally adopt. IN GENERAL. .a Expert I i Ion ta the Southern States Forming to «l*ln Arabi. Toronto, Angust 14.—A gentleman in this city has received a letter from an exofficer in the Confederate army stating that cavalry expedition    is being organized in the Southern States to ald Arabi Paella aud requesting him to join It.

London, August 14.— A despatch to the Daily News from Constantinople says tbe strongest orders have been sent to tbe governors of Bey-rout, Damascus and Aleppo to take exceptional care to secure public oruer anti prevent an outbreak of the natives.

Tile situation is such that a trifling incident would euffioe to set the wuole province ablaze. Net Yet Declared a Rebel. Constantinople, August 14.—The irade declaring Arabi Pasha a rebel and authorizing tbe Anglo-Turklsh military convention has not yet been signed. Several of tbe stipulations proposed in me military cooventton are considered unacceptable to turkey. Tne proclamation against Arabi Pasha will not be issued until the convention is signed.

Berlin, August 14.—Tbe National Zeltung states that petitions chambers of commerce throughout tiominur to Frlnoe Bis marck in regard to the indemnification of German merchants who suffered by tbe riots in Alexandria are increasing.

Th* Interest Unnbutvd In the Ptttsbar* Difficulties—Determination of the Mill-Owners to Win th# Contest—The Coming Longshoremen’s Strike. [Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.l Pittsburg, August 14.—This was the day set for the resumption of work at the .Etna Iron Mill, but the men who ba I been employed failed to make their appearance, and nothing could be done. The derelict workmen are old employes, but they are not men hers of the Amalgamated Association. They were discharged and new hands will be employed. The works will start as soon as possible. Matters are quiet at McKeesport. although some excitement followed the arrest yesterday of several persons from Braddock for assaulting non-union men. They had a hearing this afternoon, and W'Te fined $25 and costs each. The blacksmiths at Wilson St Walker mills, woo were forced to go out by the Amalgamated Association when the puddlers quit work, returned to their labors this morning, an amicable arrangement with all parties having been arranged. At the bar mill of the Spring Iron and Steel Company's works at Sharpsburg a full crew went to work this morning, ana all was quiet at last accounts. Tho labor troubles at Steubonsvllle are about over, and there are prospects ot toe mills there soon starting. It Is said thatthe Jefferson Natl Works wilt resume in two weeks at the furthest, as they have heavy orders that must be filled. This evening a prominent iron worker expulsed tbe opinion Hist some new developments In tbe strike are about to he made. When asked bls reasons for so thinking, he said: "I saw a man on the street whom I knew in the Lehigh valley. Ile was the leader there of the opposition to the Amalgamated Association, and at one time bis business was to hire non-unionists tor the manufacturers. I do not know what his business is here, but I would venture the assertion that hts appearance here will be followed by a tot of men who will be used in an attempt to break the strike.” Tho non-union experiment has up to tble time been restricted to the suburban districts, where it has proved successful In every instance. Man-srers are now talking seriously of adopting the plan in the city, believing it will work here as well as in the country. W iththis object in view, they offer a bonus of *20,000 to the mlll-owner who wilt lead off in tbe enterprise. So far as has been known, there bas been no definite response to the offer, but It is a fact that some of the city mills are preparing to resume with or without the consent of the association. Proprietors say they will dave no trouble to obtain all the help they may require. Two or three suits have been instituted against strikers for conspiracy and more are talked of. Miiiowners talk and act ss It they were determined to leave nothing undone to break tne strike aud cripple, lf not destroy, the Amalgamated Association. Interesting developments are looked for before the mouth is over. AT THE COHOES MILLS. The Hsnnitn Lealag Ground and the "Siay-Osu" Jubilant Over the Situ-allen. Cohoes, N.

Tbe No. 2 mill was un-unable to start its wheels, in No. I mill the weavers were reduced to three in number, and at th* Mastodon mill only two spinners reported. In the latter a small gain in weavers is claimed. The strikers today received from tbe Central Labor Union a promise of financial aid, and in consequence are jubilant. Ostracism of til* so-called "scabs'’ is tbe strongest weapon of tbe striker-, anti it is entorced to tile extreme. The next movement on the part of tbe mill inauag«rs is awaited with Interest. They claim that conciliation is exhaust--)!, and aggressive measures are consequently looked for. The siay-outs are masters of tho situation today. IN GENERAL.

Tbe matter has been thoroughly arranged, and the men go into the strike with a strong hope of aucoe*s. The details wore given In The Sunday Globs, and need not he repeated.

[Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.] Providence, August 16.—A terrible Are broke out at 11.30 last night* at Rowley Brothers’ stables, burning tbe building to ashes, with about sixty horses and a large number of carriages. The barn was a wooden structure and occupied a whole block, and Ie partially insured. At 12.30 the ruins were still burning. Loss about $30,000. The cause of the fire is as yet unknown; but while the night men were sitting near the front part of the stable they were horrified at seeing an Immense wall of flames swooping down upon them from the loft above, and they had to flee for their lives. Immediately after’their escape from the threatening blaze an alarm was rung out, and tne fire department rapidly gathered to the spot. When they arrived the Haines were streaming from all parts of the roof of the main building and shooting out of the upper windows, end it was at once seen that to save the stable would be utterly impossible, and there was no hope of saving any of tbe many horses from death. Withiu the roam building there were about sixty horses, twenty carriages and fixe hacks, beside a large stock of harnesses, bay, grain, and a fall complement of stable furniture, the whole being valued at 930,000. Tim moans of the poor horses in their agony were terrible to hear, but fortunately lasted but a lew moments, ai the dense smoke soon brought suffocation and a cessation of suffering to many of the helpless animals, and death soon terminated the struggles of all, not one being saved, Hard and persistent work directed at the right points, however, prevented the flames from spreading further, and the Are was confined to the building where it originated, excepting that flying brands set fire to the roofs of several bouses in the immediate vicinity, but all were saved. Herman Bchultz, a German, aged 32, who was in tbe loft of the barn when the fire broke out, was burned about the hands and face, and was taken to the Rhode Island Hospital. IN A TEN FNI ENT. A Amal!

Johnson, aud occupied as a tenement bouse bv six families. Tbe tire apparently originated upon the second floor of tho building, and when discovered had made considerable headway, as betorn the arrival of the department the flames had forced their way into tbe third story and shortly thereafter were burning through the roof. A cl ti/, ii first discovered the flames aud notified a police officer, who in turn notified members of Ko in* 23, watch is situ tea hut a short distance from the building, and while the engine was on the way to the scene of the conflagration the lieu alarm was sounded. As (..on as tbe engine arrived on the ground, the men were notified that the burning building contained several families, and only a very few ot the inhabitants of the hou«e could he satisfactorily accounted for. Accordingly Captain. Hussey ol Engine 23, District Engineer Munr»«( Captain Sawyer of Hook and Lander 12, and llnseuiau George Le Cain of Englno 23 rushed into tile burning structure and succeeded iii rescuing si verul parties. Tile smoke was so deu-e that it was almost impossible to reacn the third floor, where tile occupants were sa.a to tie sleeping.

Father and daughter were found lying unconscious on the floor of the small room, which they dignified by tile name of home, wliile the boys were hardly able to stand. Captains Hussey end Sawyer took tbe inanimate form of tile rather aud Le Cain that of the daughter, and conv* yod them to the street, thence into a neighboring House, whnro medical a d was aeon In attendance. They were subsequently sent to tim City Hospital, as were also the two boys. John (the father) was badly burned about the face. Mary also suffered severe burns about the face and hands, while tire boys were but slightly burned about tile face and bands. On the second floor was the family of Michael Bresnahan. consisting of two girls and a like Bum lier of bove. The girls were rescued with difficulty from suffocation by District Engineer Munroe and Michael Bnsna-naii, the father, while the boys Were rescued by uuknow n parties. Michael Gill and Thomas Galvin occupied the ground floor and escaped uninjured. Several oilier families occupied otiier portions of the building, which were injured only by water. The occupants of the bouse were obliged to leave the building minus clothing of anv sort in some instances, while the customary mght-uress was the only article of apparel worn ny the remainder of the occupants when they emerged into the street. All were provided with clothing and shelter by kind neighbor*. Had tne members of Englno 23 not been notified before the alarm was rung the loss of lite must have t een larger. Tim damage to tim buibui^ was but slight, and will probably not exceed $200. OTHER FIRES. Th* niaae la the Nandwtch Woods Under Control. [Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.

Va., August IU—The trial of David Garland for killing Joseph Addison in this countv in what is called an impromptu duel bas attracted the largest orowd ever seen in this quiet little inland village. Every boardinghouse and other plaoe or public entertaimaent it filled to overflowing and many find it impossible to obtain lodgings. The jail in wnlcli Garland ta confined is a small structure situated a few steps from the little old granite court house. At one of the rooms of that institution Garland bas been confined ever since a few d«ys after the death of hie victim. Just below the jail, but out of sight of the prisoner, is an old scaffold, which was used a few months ago in the execution of a negress for the murder of her hu-hand. The prisoner wa. nut so well today; his wound still pains him, and his wounded ami is sore and stiff. He is aide, however, to discard the sting in which that disabled member was carried sft--r the duel. In conversation with a reporter today Garland most emphatically denied th* insinuation made In one of Miss ilatchett’s letters that he had Blain a man in the Southwest a few vears ago. Said he: "If I thought tins matter would he referred to in my trial I would have Mise Hatcheit summoned." That lady, how-ver, Is in North Carolina, and cannot be brought here as a witness. Garland says he does not think Miss Hatchett pretty, although he considered her very entertaining. The deepest sympathy Is manifested In the county for the prisoner ana bis aged father. The court met at an early hour this morning. The prisoner, apparently about 26 or 27, carne into the coift r.ioui leaning on tne arm of his father. He appeared a Ullin nervous, but walked erect sud grasped the hands of mauv of bls old friend* In Hie room warmly ti ho passed along to his seat. Messrs. Roach and Boswell, who were menus of the accused in the tight, were alto in tbe court room, and occupied seats not far from their counsel. All of tbe accused are strlklng-looKlng men, and would impress any one upon first sight. The grand jury, composed of nineteen white and five colored men, indicted Garland, Roach and Boswell for murder. After exhausting two venires a jury of intelligent men was scoured, When directed by the clerk to stand up and plead to the Indictment the prisoner, slightly paler than when he first came into the room, arose from his seat snd said in an audible voice "Not guilt?.” He then resumed bis seat by tbe side of his counsel, Messrs. Goode of Mecklen-berg, Lee of this county and McKinney of Frlnoe Edward. Dr. May, the physician who extracted Hie hall from Addison after he was wounded, was the first witness put upon the stand by the prosecution. He testified that the hall entered the groin ami came out of the buttock. A considerable wrangle ensued as to the admission of a part of this witness' testimony. He is still on the stand aa this report close.. There are twenty-three witnesses to be examined. DON CAMERON’S SCHEME. The Pittsburg Post Explains Why Laboring Men Canun! Assist. [Special Despatch to The Boston Globe.l Pittsburg, Pena., August 14.—Upon tnt* sub-lect tbe Post, Democrat, will say editorially tomorrow: "Tbe Cameron plan to get away with the Democratic labor vote la to have tho labor convention, that meets tu Fbil .delphi* on the 28th of this month, throw overboard tbe regular (ireenhuck-Lniior candidate for governor, Mr. Thomas A. Armstrong of Pittsburg, aud nominate a Democratic cannulate, who will be used at a decoy to draw tile Democratic labor vote away from Pattison, and at the same time groat pressure will lie brought to bear on til Republican labor vote, accompanied by laviah use of money to purchasable leaders to tarn in for Beaver. We Bromid think existing Industrial conditions in Pennsylvania, especially in Alleghany county, would deter Democratic work lngmen from giving aid and comfort, either directly or indirectly, to the Cameron machine. They have certainly not forgotten Hie appeal* of the manufacturers In 1880, that ‘Garfield’s election moans higher wages and steady work; Hancock's election me ma lower w ges or idleness.' That is the way It was put by the manufacturers, who, without exception, were then, as they are now, devoted parti Mans of the Cameron machine. How has this pledge been kept' Let existing labor conditions answer. Thousands of workingmen are idle aud Hie pinch of waut is beginning to be felt in some quarters. Wages b ive not kept pnoo with Min Increased cost of living, although tbe oountiful harvests give prom is* that th. se conditions may he improved in the future. Ki'iiieinbsmig these facts we cannot see how Republican or Democratic workingmen can lie induce.I to come to the relief of the Cameron machine. It is deemed reasonably certain that tbe programme of the bosses will not succeed, and that the Philadelphia Labor Convention will either nominate Mr. Armstrong or refrain from any nomination, and oontent itself with a demand for certain legislation in tbe in tercel of labor unions."
