Just u. 1ltwelve pages attention has just been ended is worthy of a passing notice. This is the strike of the Granite cutters and papers in the East. The termination of this struggle by the a unconditional surrender a a it is reported of the men illustrates the weakness of All attempts to Settle wage disputes by the trials of strength which produce Industrial warfare. The Granite strike was heralded As one which brought to Bear the most thorough labor organisation and it stopped building operations for a time in the East. Act the men were forced to yield by want and they Are worse than if they had not struck by the loss of nine weeks work and wages. This displays the Way in which the strike method fails to Benefit the workingmen. At the same time the situation in this City shows that a system which creates such intense antagonism on the part of the Labouring masses to capital is no less a false one for capital an Industrial system that cannot be carried on without fighting either with guns Luhs or the slower weapons of idleness want and stoppage of profits require reformation. But the proper Way to effect that Reform is not less impossible a it of discovery by the methods of antagonism. Employers and employed both have a problem to solve. They should remember that the surest Way to reach that solution is to work together in Harmony both As to the Means of approaching it and for maintaining Industrial peace when the solution is worked out. An Kwa Tiona. . The congressional committee which in Sutin Cynthe Lanm Tuond matter is living up to the promises made by chairman Oates through Tim dispatch before the committee came of. Lie said that the questions it tween capita and labor had assumed certain phases for which neither political party had provided a prescription and to do Justice to himself and his colleagues their spirit so far seems broadly humanitarian rather than narrowly partisan. They appear to want the fail Light upon tilings. The most cautious of server could not classify the As democrats or As republicans from any questions they have so far asked at the committees sessions or any remarks they Hare dropped. This is very encouraging. It Means that however the two great parties differ there Are men in both parties who Are willing to address themselves to a search for the facts whatever they maybe and no matter How much these facts run against their preconceptions. A committee which Lias the disposition to do this is also rear Likely to have the Conrage to state the conclusions fairly no matter whether a Uch conclusions run counter to party prejudice or not. Ii is out of this spirit of original research and Fidelity to the truth. Despite traditions or party exigencies that real statesmanship arises. To thing coaids litre been More unfortunate than the occurrence which suddenly brought this committee to Pittsburg. Nothing May be More fortunate than that the committee has come. While it function is to inquire about the difficulty Mcm labor and capital the committee Inri mentally gets at first hands a volume of facts to contradict the wild and foolish cry of unintelligent partisans that the economic policy of Protection was responsible for these disturbances. Tricy have discovered bit the Mckinley Bill which or. Watterson or. Carlisle or. M ils and countless other democratic speakers and writers have Ever since its passage been denouncing As the last Straw which the a robber Barons Quot set upon the taxpaying camels Hack in cold letter and fact reduced in place 01 increased the duty non each and every item of manuf Etnyre involved in the Carnegie scale. They have found further this which most interest their Farmer constituents that the policy of Protection in Olnee of establishing monopolies to tie Iron and steel business has done As understanding economists know it must do to wit reduced prices in the Iong run to the consumer. They have Lind. Under oath evidence of the reduction in the prices of steel since 18k9. With the Market quotations on each item. They have under oath that this Resit has come from what chairman Frick of the Carnegie company designates As a overproduction a an evident result of competitions for if there were monopolies they would never a a overproduced merely to Cut Down the Selling Price of their own products. And the committee Well understand that Trio Competition has come about by american capital going Hito steel manufactures heavily at divers eligible Points when under the Protection policy the profits of the steel business were demonstrated. These facts if they have any meaning mean what the protectionists contend and which has been demonstrated in Glass in silk in carpet and in Many other lines of protected industries As Well As in steel to wit that the Protection which enables new american industries to Start and to let a conducted at a time for a profit quickly multiplies these industries through the desire of other capitalists to share that profit and eventually by american Competition reduces the Cost of the products to the american consumer much below the prices which prevailed when the foreign manufacturers had control of our markets. Meanwhile the committee must note that whatever the disputes which arise Over wages and Trade organizations or Between employer Aud employed american wages even the lowest paid anywhere in the country Are far better than the highest Ever reached in free Trade countries. Is not this matter of the great industries of All sorts in the United states this question of the economic system under which they Host Prosper and eventually Lessen the Cost to the consumer a matter la which democrats and republicans Are alike and equally interested should not Plain facts count for More than the Fine spun theories of doctrinaire would things he better if from the first our new industries had been shut out by free Trade deprived of the favourable conditions of the protective policy which encouraged them to Start Ilow Many of the people who arc shouting free Trade As a party Shibboleth in the Hunt for office have As much Light upon the actual facts of the ease As tills committee has been Able to secure in even a couple of Days session can the my Mars of this committee when they go to Washington afford to say in any interest whatsoever that either the american workingmen the american capitalist or the american consumer would be As Weli off to Day if free Trade had Lieen substituted for Protection during the pest Twenty years re or Industrial Wari Arf. With the excitement that naturally a sorta the Public mind in this City Over our own labor troubles the fact that a strike which earlier in the season attracted wide free Silver a death. Free Silver men rallied their forces for a last Effort on behalf of stewarts Bill in the House yesterday and met with a defeat which is final for this session at least. Despite the definite position taken up by the democratic Patty platform on the question there was a Good Deal of expectation that the Chicago document would lie ignored for various reasons. But after ail the opinion As to the expediency of passing Stewart s Bill was changed and just enough democrats voted against it to insure its defeat with the help of Republican support. There is Little credit for the defeat due to the democratic party As a whole for it is noticeable that the victorious opposition was led by sex speaker Reed and that he wielded All his Force against the Ernie to take no the Bill although the ultimate Fate of the measure was extinction so Long As Harrison is president it is Well that it was not permitted to reach him. For the cause of free coinage would have gained some prestige by passing a Bill through both houses even though its slight Success had been distinctly traceable Toan inconsistent disregard of its platform by the democratic party. On the whole there is Tittle credit due to the free Trade party for the suppression of the matter As its majority is such As to have enabled it to take a much More emphatic stand if it had been influenced by the platform on which it appeals to the people rather than by considerations of Mere expediency. A Law breaking device. An Eastern paper adds to the disclosures recently made in the West with regard to the violation of the Law by Railroad corporations and their allies with the statement of a practice rented to be in Vogue in new York for the same purpose. The scheme is nothing More nor less than tie old one of paying rebates to the shipper through the Agency of a shipping clerk in the shallow disguise of a commission. By this scheme the shipping clerk is not supposed to be paid by the firm which employ him. He conducts their business however and ships freight at the full rates on the surface of tie transaction. At the end of each month however the Railroad sends to the shipping clerk a Check for fifteen per cent or More commission on the amount of the freight Bills. Anyone who thinks that the shipping clerk is permitted to put that fifteen per cent amounting to thousands of dollars in his own pocket is at Liberty to do so. We do not know whether any of the parties to that bit of commercial Juggler imagine that by so doing they actually evade the provisions of a Law which forbids the granting of preferences or advantages in freight rates a by any device but it is evident if the statement is Correct that they think that they thus make it More difficult to Trace the illegal transaction. And these same leading Railroad and business men will bold up their bands in wonder that Labouring men can be so misguided and ignorant As to defy the Law where their wages Are at stake i storage system of Street Carr. Wiiilie the managers of the great majority of electric railways continue to declare that the trolley furnishes the Only practicable system it is important to note that a corporation having a practical and pecuniary interest in adopting the Best system has determined to adopt the storage Battery. This is the second Avenue Railroad company of new York which Lias applied for permission to change its motive Power from horses to electric storage. The application cannot be taken As conclusive evidence of the superiority of storage batteries for two or three reasons. In the first place the company states that it will try storage batteries As an Experiment first using them on a limited number of cars and on a portion of its line Only and making their further adoption depend on the Success of the Experiment then quite probably it makes this Experiment rather than adopt the tried and proved trolley simply As a recognition of the fact that it would not be permitted to erect trolley poles and wires in the streets of new York. is quite possible that the storage Battery May be successful on the Low grades of new York Street railroads while its extra weight in its present form might make a very serious difficulty for railroads which have to surmount the steeper grades such As Are encountered on most of the lines of Pittsburg. Nevertheless the Experiment on this line As Well As on the line using storage batteries in Washington is one of great interest to All cities. If that method of using electric Power can be perfected 90 As to approach the Utility of the trolley it will be a great Boon to have it replace the unsightly and sometimes dangerous trolley wires and poles. Municipal officials should keep these experiments in View and when the storage system makes a demonstrated Success insist on its substitution for the trolley system wherever practicable. The Cyclone sweep. The change in temperature yesterday was clearly the effect of the cyclonic storm which advanced from the Mississippi to the alleghenies during the previous Twenty four hours. The violence developed st different Points furnished an illustration of the theory that cyclones Are produced by the movement of an area of lower temperature into a hotter area. At Peoria Illinois the storm was violent enough to capsize a Steamer and canse a fatal disaster the extent of which is not yet Folly known. There it did not display Force enough to wreck buildings. At Springfield Ohio it showed destructive Force. A Large share of that City is reported to have been wrecked with serious destruction of life to swell the list of victims already made at Peoria. By the time that the Cool wave reached Pittsburg its Force was hardly greater than a brisk Gale. The season appears to carry out the idea that disasters come in groups. Storms riots conflagrations have followed close on each other with such rapidity As to Mark the season As one of destruction and gloom. Sectional versus National a striking illustration of one of the features of the times is the unanimous demand of the Philadelphia papers for congressional favors to the project for a ship canal Between Philadelphia and now York. The project of connecting the Ohio River with Lake Erie is treated by them with Cool inattention that for connecting the upper Mississippi with Lake Michigan receives their enmity. But the canal Between Philadelphia and new York must have in the first application for a Survey two and one half times that asked for the much larger Ohio River and Lake Erie canal and in the second place 12,000,000 to build the casual or its press refuses to be satisfied. This is simply the manifestation of the sectional spirit of grabbing whatever can he got for any particular locality regardless of the equity or importance of the expenditure. Anyone who has Given any study to the subject of internal Waterways knows that the canal proposed is one of the least important of the various projects. It parallels a waterway of infinite capacity already existing namely tie a spent up Ocean. Its sole commercial use would be the local traffic Between Philadelphia and new York the greatest shipping business of of both ports being exports and imports which go directly to deep water. It is recognized by those who urge it that its main use would be As a protected Channel in Case our coasts Shosid be blockaded in the improbable event of War. Yet at the same time tills class of Public opinion ignores the projects that Are needed to prevent great Inland seas from being the prey of the enemy and which if War should not come would be of the highest commercial value. Everyone should know that the Hennepin the Ohio River and Lake Erie and the Lake Erie and Ontario to Tidewater projects Are of the first and fastest importance. But the hunger for appropriations leads to ignoring that fart and clamouring for appropriations of secondary importance. It is quite possible that the system of Waterways May eventually include the Interior Channel much talked of in the fast. But any movement for the creation of such a system that is to Rise above the level of a general grab game must take the different parts of the system to the order of their importance and necessity. A proper protest. There is Good sense As Well As Good taste to the general protest of both protestant and Catholic clergymen against the project to transplant the Boeram Mergan passion play and to make it one of the shows of the Chicago world s fair. There is decidedly bad taste in the project itself. Even at Ober Ammerman the presentation of the figure and sufferings of the Savior would be very questionable except As the limitations and intentions of the people of that primitive spot Are considered. The presentation on a dramatic stage of what is to the Christian world tie most divine and sacred imagination must necessarily Vul Arize it to people like the participants at the Home of the passion play the performance is doubtless sacred and touching. To those who travel there to see the show it can represent Little that partakes of the sentiment of Devotion. But the passion play removed from its surroundings of sincerity and simplicity and transplanted to the atmosphere of Chicago and the sufferings of the Savior portrayed to a crowd of sightseers As a dramatic speculation is something so closely approximating sacrilege As to repel rather than attract every discriminating mind. It is to be hoped that this protest will be heeded. Of certainly if the authorities who hold the purse strings cannot stomach the idea of letting people quietly walk through the pair on sunday afternoons there ought to be a very positive prohibition of the scheme of making a show of the Savior sure and sufferings. A whatever other accusations can be brought against him no one can Traub fully charge miserly Economizer Holman with being a Man ahead of the times lie argues that because tallow dips were enough for Luchting the students when he was a boy therefore the West Point appropriation Bill should not contain provisions for any better system of illumination to Day. If it were not for his obstreperous liveliness Ono would imagine that the Holster statesman had been dreaming to the Back Woods Ever Sunoo be left of cobol. The great reduction of Gladstone s majority to Midlothian is Quot the most Cut of ally received by his cause in tilts election. It indicates the tremendous Effort put Forth by his opponents As Well As the scotch jealously that Home kills a or Ireland Haa altogether swamped Home Rule for Scotland As a political venue. Ant political Alliance Between the democrats and the people s party to Minnesota will merely demonstrate that the desperate Straits of both organizations incline them to an unholy disregard for their principles in the straggle for the attainment of office. Now that Pasteur is recovering from an attack of cholera he May be expected to devote himself to an Energy to research 1 ulving in View the discovery of an Inocula Ron process to prevent the spread of the disease. The establishment of a Branch of Republican National Headquarters at Chicago should More than counteract any tendency to demoralization due to the Lato democratic convention in Tomt City. The last Ball game in the first division of the National league championship season Shosid have been played by the put Tobarg nine yesterday but rain prevented a repetition of tuesday s Victory.

How history May be repeated. In the Days of the old Volunteer fire department in Pittsburg colonel William pull lips who was councilman from the second Ward and chairman of the finance committee got into opprobrium through defeating a Bill for an appropriation to meet the current expenses of the department. The boys were not aware that colonel Phillips had already provided a much larger ruin out of his own pocket and at the ensuing election Tuey attempted to defeat his return to councils colonel Billy was As hot As he was Geu Crons and for revenge indulged in a pretty do of Fina Ciering Lor his original purpose to Aid the a volunteers Quot fid bad bought a Block o Compromise Railroad Bonds then Selling below and Fiad made a Trust deed so that the interest would be applied to the needs of the department. In the consequent mints to created instead a Compromise Railroad sinking fund commission which was to hold these Bonds in Trust reinvesting the interest for the purpose of wiping out the debt itself at its maturity. The arithmetic of it is this the 79 Bonds Cost 711,000 and the accruing interest to Day amounts to 9400,000. The debt is 92,000,-00u, Aud the Bonds which will mature in 1913, by their interest will have wiped out half the debt. This was a big Gilt and by the Law of nature it was a still bigger sum to lose.
