Va. Coke Before Closing Down.  One of the hest signs of returning confidence in the business situation is the announcement that the South Chicago plant of the Illinois Steel Company will be reopened on Monday, March 19, after being closed since September 15, 1893. These works are the largest in the country and when run at filii capacity give employment to over 3,000 men. it is the intention of the managers to start next week, provided nil the arrangements are completed, with over 2,000 men.  Orders for steel rails have been dropping in "lowly for several months, but there have not been enough of them to enable the starting of the enormous plant and keep it running any length of ti me. Now, however, the company ha* secured enough orders and believe that there Is a  ht to i and i two it he  DICKSON  COOPER.  >tl p. m.yosb rday Min; Margaret Ellen Cooper, one oi the na >st popular ladled of Kennedy j this town, wa* married to Mr. Charles ; Henry Dictum, -i pipnlar voting j bc>iness nam or Pi'!

The steel rail trade has been very peculiar. Railroads which usually buy rails in November and December for delivery the next year have not bought any up to date and others have bought slowly. At Hr-tith Chicago there are eight bla*t fur-noces In connection with the rail plant. One of the Iterances wa* blown in about a week ago, and it is the intention to blow is four when a start is made. Heretofore they made steel rails exclusively at South Chicago. Now. however they will try the experiment of making steel billet* with their rail machinery. In making rails the imvlal is kept moving from the time it leaves the furnace until it is made into rails. The rails are run through a aet of  ----------if theparlor. ,,    ....

It  Scottdale, March 22.—(Special.]—The miner*' convention adjourned at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon to meet Monday, March 26 *.t which time representative* of the organization expect to have a conference with the operators. The officers of the organization express a determination to organize the entire n gion and sa,} the na.Ionai union will furnish the necessary funds to carry on the work.  The work of organizing lias been conducted secretly and the meeting yesterday was a surprise to operator* who ail along scoffed at Die talk of the existence of an • Tetanization, ac exclusively published in the News Standard two weeks ago. One operator, who refused to allow the , use of his name, said: “My works will .not be run by union men.” Another said:  ’ There is no need of a labor organization in the- coke region, as the men who are at work are contented. The agitators are th we who are uot working.” There seems to !>e a disposition on the part of the operator s to oppose organization and a.strike nnvt follow.

The total production was 112,625 tons and the shipments were 106,825 tons, a surplus production of 5,800 tons. The works made an average of 5.57 days just the same as the week previous.  His 90th Birthday Celebrated Here Tuesday Evening.  The W. C. T. U. of Uniontown joined with temperance societies all over the country in celebrating the 90th anniver  were not sufficient to keep down the in tere"t on the amount they agreed to pay. And he brought suit to recover back the land or compel the defendants to pay the balance of the purchase money. The defendants claimed that the plaintiff and his mother bought Hie land together from Jacob Prinkey on an article of agreement and that when the purchase price had been paid Mr. Prinkey was to make the deed to both of them, but that before the purchase money a .* ail paid the plaintiff got the deed made n his own name unknown to his mother and that he advanced the purchase mot i ;• himself and that his mother was to pay aim the balance oi her share, but that as soon a* she found out how the deed was made she quit paying.
