Hoar Wouldn't so Overwhelmed with it for a Million April the Senate Una afternoon there waa quite a sharp little exchange of words between Messrs. Hoar and Blair. It was within a few minutes of 2 o'clock aud Mr. Blair was desirous of passing a pension bill thab had been pend- ing for several days. Mr. Hoar proposed to say whereupon Mr. Blair protested tbafc he was utterly disgusted with the manner in which pension legisla- tion bad been kicked and cuffed and buffeted about. He hud never seeu pension legislation treated with so much disrepect in either bouse. Unless there waa a change he should ask to be excused from service on tbe Pension Committee. He said the pension bill had been shoved aside for ihdt one thing and then there was 'Hhis continuous gobble about open ses- hiona and dictionary nonsense'1 about other matters. Mr. Hoar interposed by hoping his frieud excuse Mr. Blair said he could not excuse Mr. Hoar's ignorance abont tbe bill and pending etc. Mr. Hoar retorted sarcastically tbat he wouldn't know all that the Senator from New Hampshire knew if .he not for a million dollars would he be so over- whelmed with knowledge.

Grand Master T1IKSTJKIKBUS QUIET And the Situation Exciting Incident at ST. April is very lit- tle change ia the strike situation here or at East St. aa farn.s the resumption of traffic is concerned. The chief difficulty is best expressed in tbe following remark by au Ohio Mississippi have plcoty of men to do our work and there would be altogether too many it'they understood their business. They are in- experienced and have to be continually watched for fear of their making some bad blunder. Of course thiaia a drawback aud a source of vexation to those in but have to pat up with as good experi- enced men are not to be The Indianapolis and St. Louis people claim they now have a full force of plat- form men. One of tbe clerks when aaked to-day where they got moat of them said he supposed they carafi from St. as they hurried across the bridge as soon as work wua over. When asked whether he thought they would remain if the militia were he said he hardly thought they would. Most of them are men who have gone to work just for the time being to earn a few dollars and last evening eight of them who had only been at work two days drew their pay and iailcd to put in an appearance this morning. An exciting occurred at East St. Louis this morning. J. W. of Company from wad doing sentinel duty iu the North Vandalia yards. About 4 o'clock tho report of a pistol rang out and a bullet went whizzing by the militiaman's head. He brought his gun to bis shoulder in quick time and Gred in the direction from which the re- port seemed to have come. Just as he he perceived a man spring up from behind one oi' tho wagons in the transfer yards aud start to rtm. Walters fired again at the fleeing who re- turned tbe lire. At the second report of Walters' gun another man sprang out from bis place of concealment and ran as fast as ho Tbe phots were fired al- most iu succession and the reports aroused and alarmed the sleeping residents of that portion of the who imagined that a conflict between the military and the strikers bad -surely occurred. The troops in the freight house took hold of their guns ina hurry and a thorough search of tbe island was mado tor tbe two but without avail. General .Recce when informed of the attempt on Walters' thought it a very cowardly piece of busi- ness. He aaid tlie militia bore no ill-will toward the .strikers ami were only doing their duty. The roadmaster and several switch hands of the Pittsburg road on the East Side made a discovery while going over tbe roud an early hour this morning which no doubt prevented the ditching of the Belleville accommodation and the probable loss oi a number of lives. At a place about a quarter of a mile out of West Belleville they found that the spikes which held down two rails had been drawn and tbe connecting bolt unfastened during the night. Had the discovery not been made before the passenger train came along about o'clock the engineer could not have perceived tbe condition of the rails and the train would undoubtedly hare been thrown over the embankment. Oommitteman of the general executive returned this morning from where he reported every- thing quiet and the stnkers determined to stay out as long as necessary. Chairman Martin of the joint executive arrived on an ear y this morning and repaired at once to 's where hereported to the enel board. Mr. Irons said that from tbe situation ot nin the West are very telto than that he declined to discuss the and is more retioen even than be waa previous to leaving on his last trip.

Seven hundred women and at Tncker's cordage struck co-day for an in- crease twelve and a half centa per day in wages. Tho men now make about per day.

I don't that Me. Gould has answered my letter. His reply is a quibble and an evasion and he fairly slops over 011 some points. All there is in his communi- cation has been aaid before. He evidently wants to pose before the country in the light of a but the Knights of Labor don'fc propose to boa or him with martyr- dom. have invited him to carry his threats of prosecution into the courts and we are ready to meet him there. He fmnouuced some time ago his intention to commence a series of prosecutions against tho Knights and we want him to proceed at once. We shall not be swayed from our course by anything he may say or do. as soon as possible we shall appoint a committee of the Order to investigate the Southwestern trouble from root to branch all along the line St. Louis to the Mexican border. The result of the investigation will be published to the and if the Knights of Labor who struck are at fault they will not be screened. We are _ to have a Congressional Committee investi- gate the strike ascertain the causes leading to it and make them public with- out delay. Mr. Gould or rather like a man who fears that he will be injured. If he should be punished legally for unlawful acts ot his that would not be unjustly injuring him.

It filled up and emptied itself every half hour. They were looking for it to flow at any but it had failed to do so up to 2 p. Iu the tirst 'twelve boars it made fourteen inches in au 800- barrel tank. No. S was expected to get the sand last night or early this morning. No. 15 is a correspondingly small well making only 15 barrels iu fifteen hours. Ife was treated to u of glycerine and- responded with a nice How. No. which started at 75 made 54 barrels tbe last twenty -four hours. They seero to have considerable trouble with No 2 on account of salt water that comes from the bottom of the sand. They are putting in pocking to see what effect it will have. It de- clined to eight inches in twelve hours the other but by bailing her oufc ifc was restored to her old 160 The Kane Oil Company's No. 2 is in the same so to speak. It was drilled through the got salt aud now they are putting in rods. The prevailing question in the Kaue production really falling ofl' and in what direction will the belt show itself after it once stands out beyond it defined limits. The theory regarding the elbow bfi It re- ported in previous issue of THK KKA is now beginning to gain warm friends and is also proving to be as stated the way the gas streak runs. Take it from the Kane Oil Company's gaser No. on the Griffith lands northeast to the Union thence east to the Murphy Tenneut northeast to the Kans gaser No. 1 southwest of the thence north to No. now take tbe oil belt from the Kaue Oil Company No. 2 on lob Griffith which is the best in tha north to the original Jo .To well about sixty rods from the gas fol- low this line northeast fco the Fitmegan Monroe well in the northeast corner of and the same distance from the belt and small Shirley Hochstctler No. 2. The most- sanguine are looking for it fco extend up as far as the Fertig Bros.' well. which is due before runs east where it is expected to take a correspond- ing carve and follow the gas belt. There seems to be some diversity of opinion re- gariliug the production the Held and number of barrels produced from forty- seven wells. The product-ion is bar- rels against barrels from thirty-seven wells a week previous. This is the last correct gauge taken of then'eld. The Union Oil Company's wells are commencing to lose ground. Yesterday's gauge was barrels from thirteen from seven days prior. Tho Kaue Oil Company's wells are showing little signs of weakness and especially on the west half of 420. Their No. which is not quite on the centre of tho southern line with a lean towards tbe east is hardly any better than a 20-barrd pro- ducer. Air. Boyer is credited with saying that they did not expect the west half of 426 to produce much oil and not to turn out larger than uve-harrelers. A magazine has been located about a mile and a half from west of Kano and riomewhere in the neighborhood of one-half ton of glycerine all ready on the ground. The torpedo man is jumpinc around very lively and it is said on good authority that ho will be called in active service in about a week. The oil is beginning to run pretty hard not with the t-ase and graceful move- ment wliich once characterised it and the opinion seems to prevail that the pump will bo a necessary article in the course of a few weeks. Craig ACappeau's No. 7 was drilling in the sand yesterday with a fair showing and the prospects are it will be a producer similar to the average No. 1 is not losing its nerve and eeems to have a mortgage on 55-barreI gauges. No. 14 is not of a very large calibre. It made 50 barrels the last twenty-four honrs. It was shot which improved ii somewhat. They are building rigs for Nos. 17 and IS.

Since starting ou Wednesday night the professional tramps at the Parlor Rink have spun over distance in a way to make the spectator's corns ache. As the gray light of dawn began to croep through the windows yesterday the track was de- all the being iu the en- joyment ol half an hour's sweet after having covered between fifty and sixty miles. Presently a groan was beard and the elderly face of Mr. Taylor appeared at tbe door of his dressing room. As he shuttled out one eould almost hear his joints creak. He crept around at a stiff and spavined which took some time to wear away. His fellow citizens of talented legs crawled forth oue by all stiff aud with eyes lowered and no remarks -to make. Feeling for them Manager Ring brought forth bis clarionet and piped sundry joyous strains that infused life into the laggards and away they went in more ship shape fashion. During tho day Hhrt and Golden maintained their respective positions. Visitors dropped in from time to bat there was little disposition to hazard on the result. Tbe first hundred miles waa covered by Taylor in twenty hours. Hart was then abont six miles Groldeu was the others in fair condition. During the afternoon better time was made. In the evening there was another large attendance and music cheered the monot- ony of the ceaseless tramp. The score for twenty-four taken at was as Laps.

NEW April 4. re- finers yesterday asked Tie for 70 degree Abel the quotation was not officially given at that figure. With the boom in crade refiners increased their views and refused offers at To-day the crude market was a little weaker and in conse- quence barrelled oil was not marked up. The sales dnriog the week aggregated about mostly lor European account. Closing quotations were here and at the outports. Of the English market the London Grocer of April 3d deliveries of American refined at this port during the past month have progressed at a highly satisfactory and although the impor- tations have been on an augmented scale a considerable diminution has occurred in the aggregate stock since the beginning of Starch. ID the same period last however the quantity on hand waa materially worked and is the chief cause of the present stock appearing double what it was though when reference is made to the amount held in there is actually a deficiency of no less a quantity than barrels. A fairly though not active demand had been experienced all the month and extensive parcels have changed but holders have been willing to purchasers on almost their own and occasion- ally easier prices have been acceded till the premium one time obtained for the beat brands has entirely disappeared.
