There are in the United States 1.800 railroad corpora- tions, but the railroad business is per- formed by 600 operating roads. Of the operating roads 377 prohibit the use of intoxicating liquors, and others regu- late its use among employes in one form or another. Only twenty-five railroads furnish dwelling houses for employes, but upwards of 150 furnish section hands with lodgings when away from their homes. Nineteen roads maintain bene- ficiary institutions to which the men and corporations both contribute. These in- stitutions help those who are disabled and the families of thore who lose their lives in the service. Many roads con- tribute toward the support of benefici- ary institutions established for the bene- fit of their men, while others pay ex- penses of injured employes. About 300 of the operating roads either pension permanently disabled employes or re- tain them in the service on light duty. A goodly number of railroads maintain libraries and reading rooms. Proceedings In the of and Senate. WASHISOTOS, April 19 Mr. Enloe, of Tennessee, rose to a question of personal privilege yesterday and Bent to the clerk's desk fcnd had reai an artitle from the New York Press declaring that a gigantic fraud had been discovered in the Souttien War Claims bill and that Mr. Thomas of Wisconsin, chairman of the Committee ou 'VTarCl.iim'i, had denounced the bill as one of ths most mUmous that had ever been f upon Con Tress. Mr. Tuoma-j said he thought ho could prove the disloyalty of a number of the claimants. Mr Enloe s.'id that the ihirge that he had brought the bill before the surreptitious- ly was false Mr Cannon submitted a disagreeing report on the national Zoo bill which was agreed to, and the House insisted upon its amendment taxing the District of Columbia half of the cost. Mr Henrter-on, of T Imois, rep rted the River and Harbor bill and it was referred to the Com mittee of the Whole The House then went into Committee of the Whole on the prh ate calendar Tue Court of Claims bill was called up. Mr Thomas ottered a resolution to recommit the bill, withlnstruo- tions to the Committee on War Claims to inves the loyalty of the claimants This and another proposition to have the committee re port it bock within two weeks were finally agreed to and the resolution was adopted. The House then took a recess until eight p m., the night session to be for the consideration of private pension bills. Mr. Hawley moved to take up the World's Fair bill This antagonized by Mr Dolph with a motion for a secret session The latter prevailed and the Senate doors were closed and the Senate considered the leakage of executive secrets. The doors were reopened at five o'clock and the following bills were passed Appropriating for a public building at Haverhill, Mass. House bill increasing to H500.000 the limit of ex pense for the public building at Troy, N Y. House bill increasing the limit of cost for the public bui'ding at Newark. N.

Ky., April Adjutant General Hill, at Frankfort, received a telegram yesterday from Pineville say- ing that a fight had occurred in tho Black Mountains berVeen tho State militia and mountain outlaws. Five of the soldiers were wounded. It is thought some of the mountaineers were shot, bat it is not known how many. Tho militia from Lexington and Harrodsburg were sent to guard the court in Hadan Court House during the trial of the outlaws engaged in the Turner-Howard vea- dctta. The place of the fight is remote from any station. It is believed that a sever" will take soon M additional the place, for rhf outlaws arc for- tified. well armed with Winchester rifles, and swear thai will not sur- rt-nflcr. and are dctx-rroined and want revenge for who have >hoi down. SHKI.KVVII.I.K. Ajiril F. ia Varr. and latbcr Jn-rv by fr ox-ant of V-.Tfd into I' la cn- Has Its AppounuMM to Prices of All tepidly Under Theae Conditions. The Industrial Sltaatloa a Dark t to Thta of AvUvtty NKW YOSK, April R. O. Dun A Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade tays. A of extraordinary speculation has set in. While helped by some consider- ations affecting the supply or demand for products, such as injury to wheat, it is mainly the result of proposed silver legislation, which is expected to ex- pand the monetary circulation enor- mously and to lift prices at once. Grain, pork, products, cotton, oil and sugar have advanced, the latter in spite of the proposal to remove the entire duty, and lumber also in spite of the increasing interruption of building by eight-hour strikes. The general average of prices for commoidties has advanced .8 of one per cent in a week; and 1.7 per cent, in three weeks, flocks have also been stronger, and reports of trade are uni- formly more cheerful At the same time there is continued evidence of an actual increase over last year in the volume of business transacted. There is not a corresponding improve- ment in the industrial condition. Wool has been firmer at Boston, but very dull and inactive at New York and Philadel- phia. In the goods market no improve- ment is seen. Cotton manufacture does not thrive the better for the advance in the material, with goods unchanged in price. The boot and shoe industry is thriving and leather and hides are both a shade firmer and in more active de- mand. But the eight-hour strikes in many cities have already arrested all building operations and are expected to extend, so that the market for glass is already affected unfavorably, and also the demand forstructural iron. Unless these controversies end more speedily than is generally expected the demand for lumber, brick and all other building materials will be for a time uncertain and restricted. The iron business shows no improve- ment. In steel rails large orders are pending and it is thought they can be placed at S'33. Bar iron 19 dull and de- pressed, and structural less active. Yet it is stated that one firm of builders is now erecting eight more iron furnaces. Substantially all the reports from other cities give an encouraging record of the state of business. Collections -are generally good. _ At nearly all western points favorable reports are made. It is especially noteworthy that there is no serious monetary pressure any- where. This state of facts and the gen- eral improvement in collections deserve notice at a time when Congress is con- templating larger monetary supplies. Bribery and Treachery. ST. PETEHSBTJRG, April 19. A sensa- tion has been created here by the an- nouncement that the young woman ar- rested here a day or two ago for at- tempting to bribe a government official to surrender a copy of the government's mobilization scheme and the plans of the Russian frontier fortifications, acted under the orders of Baron Von Plessen, naval attache of the German embassy. When the disclosure was made it was found that the Baron had suddenlv taken bis departure from the city. An Unhappy Country. VIENNA. April The strike has ex- tended to all industrial centers in East- ern Silesia. Sixty of the rioters ar- rested at Wittkowitz Thursday night made an attack upon two of tho sen trie? guarding them during tbo night and twenty of them escaped. The sentries were seriously wounded, but were able to prevent a wholesale escape. The strikers are without leaders and negoti- ations with them are impossible. Coal is becoming Terr scarte and there are fears of a famine. BASE Chaw- N KW April Following are of At liochecter Alb- 1C. At 21. 4. o a. At St. jj. A FIGHT WITH BOBBERS. Party. 80.TKK CITY, N.

Wbooasla Will the Next Campaign on an Unique Ptatforak. MILWAUKEE, April 19. The old school remedy of a counter-irritant is to be ap- plied to the body politic by the Repub- licans of this State. A boom is to be or- ganized against Governor Hoard, the in- tention being to have the Republicans place somebody else in nomination for the Goveruorsbip this fall. The man selected is to come out for the "funda- mental but repudiate the Bennett law as it now stands and favor its repeal. The party cry is to be: "Let everybody have a chance to learn the English language." Angus Cameron, of La Crosse, is said to be the man chosen to make the race, and report has it that this was the reason he resigned the chairmanship of the Cherokee Commis- sion recently. Crushed Under a Fly-Wheel. CHICAGO, April 19. Three men Were crushed by a twenty-five-foot fly-wheel Thursday night at the Chicago North- western Fertilizing Company's works. The wheel was on the center and the engineer called several men to help him start it. It started unexpectedly, drag- ging three men into the pit underneath, crushing and maiming them.

A dozen others were injured, but not seri ously. Siberian ST. PETERSBURG, April A Rus- sian official in a letter to the Gasdaniu describes the miseries and dangers of a trip in Siberia, even for those who art people of means. The price of every thing is terribly high; the population ia vicious and depraved, and the petty offi- cials are drunkards and thieves. It it not safe to be out of doors after nine o'clock in the evening unarmed. In a M order. ro, Wyo-, April Druggist Sullivan was shot and killed in his store at Lander. Fremont County. Thursday evening by Dr. .7. A. Schuefk. Theoriei of the quarrel which led to the shooting differ greatly, but jealousy is bettered to bare been the cause, fjoih men are understood to hare been attentive loan extrgmelr pretty hatf-brced yirl.

COLUMBUS, O., April even- ing's Daily Press published a lengthy sensational article exposing the alleged, crookedness of ex-Deputy Warden C. B. Cberrington, of the penitentiary. It is charged in this article that Cherrington is guilty of killing convict Clark Ours by washing him off the roof of one of the prison buildings on December 8, 1888. and that in his efforts to save himself from arrest on the charge of murder, he blackmailed Dr. Clemtner, the prison, physician, and guard Zinck and finally arranged matters so that his tool in all these Charles M.
