NO. 28 TO REDUCE STRIKES. A NEW METHOD OF SETTLING LABOR DISPUTES. The London Cliamljur wf Commerce Maturing; a Scheme to Abolish the Old System of Adjusting Differences Between Employer and Kmploye. Importing German Workmen. LONDON, June The London Chamber Commerce is maturing a schi'Mu-1 which it is expected will reduce number of strikes in a great measure and ultimately abolish that method of settling disputes between employer and employe. The plnn contemplates the formation of a "concili- ation half of is to be COmpotoJ of employes in the various trades and half of master em- ployers representing the k-Jiiling indus- tries. This committee is proposed to divide into twelve groups for purposes of convenience and any dispute incapable of settlement by one of these sub-divisions is to be referred to the full committee. The plan meets with the favor of the trades unions and the masters and it is not likely that any difficulty will be experienced in obtaining the unqualified consent of both to abide by the final decisions of the committee. A MASTER TAILORS' SYNDICATE. The recent strike among the tailors of London and the probability that there may be another at an early date have in- duced the master tailors of Glasgow to import a number of workmen under con- tract from Germany. Eight of the largest tailoring establishments in Glasgow have formed a syndicate with the object of overcoming any strike, that may occur among their workmen. One hundred men. have already been engaged at Hamburg under a contract binding them to work steadily for one year at a weekly stipend of 30 shillings The syndicate pays their expenses to Glasgow and guarantees that a week's work shall be only 54 hours. It is expected that many more will be im- ported and it is quite likely that the move- ment will extend to London. NEXT SATURDAY'S MASS MEETING. Arrangements are proceeding satisfac- torily for the demonstration to be held in Hyde park on June 7 against the compen- sation for publicans, or the publicans' en- dowment and pension bill, as it is now called. A whole army of members of par- liament will speak and numerous public bodies have signified their intention to be present. Vigorous propaganda is being pressed by those who have the meeting in charge and distribution is being made of copies of Sir Thomas Farrar's letter con- demning and copies of Sir William Harcourt's speech at Ber- mondsy. The inquiry now in progress by the board of trade into the loss of the National line steamship Erin is being pursued in the direction of ascertaining whether the vessel was not overloaded. The suspicion that this was the case has long been enter- tained in official quarters. SHARING PROFITS WITH EMPLOYES. The Guinness Brewing company has voluntarily added a shilling a week to the wages of each of its employes, supplement- ing the announcement with the statement that the prosperity of the company's busi- ness justifies its sharing the increase, of profits with the men who have contrib- uted to it by their industry and fidelity. This increase of wages, made quite unex- pectedly and without solicitation, will add the sum of a year to the com- pany's pay roll and incalculably increase its popularity with the working class. BOYCOTTERS REFUSED ABSOLUTION. The Rt. Rev. Edward T. O'Dwyer, Cath- olic priest at Limerick, has issued a pas- toral letter withdrawing from the priests in his diocese the power to grant absolu- tion to persons guilty of boycotting or ad- vocating and practicing the ''plan of cam- paign." The action of the bishop has cre- ated much surprise and indignation. The court at day sentenced four strikers to terms of im- prisonment varying from six to eighteen months for intimidating workmen who refused to abandon their employment and take part in the general strike. Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria has issued a special order thanking the troops for their splendid conduct during the recent labor disorders in Vienna and other parts of the empire. TO BE SET ASIDE. The Motion to Discharge Kemmler to be Denied by Agreement. BUFFALO. Jnne 3. The Kcmmler case is to be argued to-day. Mr. Charles S. Hatch stated yesterday that in order to save time an arrangement had been made with the attorney general to have the habeas corpus set aside, and the motion for Kemmler's discharge de- nied without argument, A judgment will then be entered against Kemmler and an appeal will be taken aad thus the conrt of appeals will get the cmse at once. The question whether Kemniler should be in the custody of and be executed by sheriff of Erie county or Warden Durs- ton of Auburn prison will come before the general term thin morning. This is the point on which the habeas corpus was is- sned that has delayed the execution of Kemmler. __ State ElertJen. Ore.

On the other hand expenditures during the eleven months just passed aggregated or about fourteen millions more than for the corresponding eleven months of the past fiscal year. Pension payments so far this year have amounted to or fully thirteen millions more than during the corresponding eleven months of the previous year. Coin- age at the mints during May aggregated in value or in gold coin and in standard silver dollars and the remainder in minor coin.

MANSFIELD, O., June 4-30 o'clock yesterday afternoon during a heavy storm lightning struck Tracy Avery's powder house, located about a mile east of the city.

Ilayiie in Declining Stone's Nomiuattou :n His Stead Liable to Create Trouble Resolutions of Censure Adopted. PITTSBURG, June various Re- publican conventions were held yesterday. Hon John Dalzell was re-nominated for congress In the Twenty-second district without opposition Probably the greatest political sensation that has ever taken place in Allegheny county occurred in the Twenty-third con gressional district convention The en- tirely unexpected action of Ron Thomas M. Bayne in declining re-normnation to congress after having defeated his oppon- ent George Shiras. 5 to 1, and the subse- quent nomination of Col. William A. Stone to succeed him created an immense sensation all over the county, nud rumor? of all descriptions are in circulation. George Shiras, Col. Bayue's opponent, now claims that he Is entitled to the nomi- nation and threatens to cause trouble In accordance with the rules of the county committee, prominent Republicans, friends of both Shiras and Bayne claim Stone's nomination is irregular and can- not stand. Mr. Bayne's reason for refusing the nomination was that he was worn out, and unable to work. He had worked for the honor of renomination as a vindica- I tion, had succeeded and was satisfied. Mr. Bayne says he decided upon this course several months ago, but told no one but his wife Mr. Bayne says he will retire to private life aud will not again be identified in politics in in an official capacity. There are, how- ever, numerous rumors to the contrary, one mentioning Col. Bayne as a Quay compromise candidate for governor; an- other that he is to be appointed to a foreign mission any many others. Just previous to the close of the conven- tion of the Twenty-third legislative dis- trict in Allegheny City last night, George D. Riddle, a prominent attorney, read a series of resolutions severely censuring Congressman Bayne for his action in de- clining the nomination in the manner in which he did, and demanding that the county committee call another convention at the earliest possible date The resolu- tions were adopted. THE M'KINLEY TARFUFF BILL Furnishej a Subject for Tiro Immensa Meetings at Philadelphia. PHILADELPHIA, June business men's meeting was held at the Walnut Street theatre yesterday afternoon at which Alexander K. McClure presided. The tobacco, tin plate and woolen indus- tries were largely represented Among the speakers were Congressmen McAdoo, Springer, Bynum and Breckinridge of Kentucky. Last night a mass meeting of workingmen in textile was held at Kensington, and was addressed by the same gentlemen Both meetings were called for the purpose of protesting against the McKinley bill. There were from to people at the Kensington meeting, and three over- flow meetings were necessary A big pa- rade of workingmen preceded the meet- ings. Resolutions were adopted declaringthat both parties had promised to amend the tariff so as to remove unnecessary burdens and enlarge our markets: that the party now in power had. on the contrary, pro- posed to add to the burden and restrictthe market by the McKinley bill: and that the meeting would be satisfied vrith nothing short of free raw materials and such general reduction of the tariff as to cheapen the necessaries of life and open foreign markets, securing steadier work and more comfortable living for the workingmen The announcement of a letter from ex- President Cleveland was greeted with great applause The letter was as follows: XEW YORK. Mar 9. 1890 To F. A. Hcrwig. Esq.. Secretary: MY DBAS desire through you to thank the Kensintrton Reform club, formerly known as the Workingmen's Tariff Reform associa- tion, for the courteous invitation I have re- ceived to attend a meeting on the even- ing of the 3d of June. The terms in uhicb the invitation expressed convince? me thftt the question of tariff reform is receiving the atten- tion it deserves from those most vitally inter- ested in its just and fair solution I know that with the feeling now abroad in our land, vritb the intense existence and activity of sucb dubs the claim presumptuously made that the people at the last election finally passed upon tbe of tariff adjustment, will eiupbatirallj- denied; and that oar working- men sad otfr farmers will continue to agitate and all other questions involving their welfare with increased zeal and in the lieht of increased knowledgo experience until they are dftermined finally a-nd in accordance with the American sentiment of fair play.

If congress refused to a-ct favorably in the matter Mr. Flower thinks it well no longer to delay the work, but to prepare the designs for a structure costing The association has already on hand, and he believes the re- maining could be raised by sub- scription after the work wns well under way. If the Xew York people postpone action much longer the citizens of the South are likely to build a Grant monument them- selves. Under date of Richmond, Ya., Congressman Allen of Mississippi tele- graphs Mr. Flower as follows: '-Withdraw your resolution, the Confederate soldiers will build a monument to Grant to be lo- cated here, to be inscribed: 'To a generous foe, by his late adversaries.'" AN INTERESTING EXHIBIT. An Egyptian's Proposition to the Di- rectors of the "World's Fair. CHICAGO, June Tagliaferro of Alexandria. Egypt, writes to the directors of the world's fair that he is in a position to furnish them an interesting exhibit. He has sent the officials a photograph of .1 sar- cophagus which he believes, and claims, is that of Cleopatra. It was recently discov- ered in Caesar's camp, near Alexandria, by archaeologists. After paying the Egyptian government its dues, the writer says he sold it to a friend for speculation. Whea the sarcophagus was opened, the contents were in ashes with the exception of the skeleton, which is still preserved. Tagliaferro says he is prompted to nego- tiate with the exposition authorities from notices which he has seen in newspapers from the United States announcing that the Khedive of Egypt has been asked by the of the exposition for the mummy of Rameses. His price is free on board at Alexandria. Mayor Cottrell Will Surrender. JACKSONVILLE, June 4. "Will Cottrell will be in-Jacksonville inside of forty-eight said one of his trusted friends Monday. '-His plans are all arranged. He to come in and give himself up to the United States marshal and no matter what the bail will be it will be furnished in any amount at once. Cottrell's friends now feel that he is being persecuted and they intend to stand by him. With an in- dictment hanging over him he would be practically an exile, and he has con- cluded to stand his trial." Stephen B.
