ON THIRD READING.

of “The Georgia Justice,” prepared by

ation to tho Comptroller General before

Mr. Lewis, of the Nineteenth, opposed the
passage of the resolution. He did not think
the facts in the case would warrant the
granting of such relief. There is no good

exception. It would be establishing a dan
gerous precedent unless there were extra
ordinary reasons, and such reasons do not

man of the Finance Committee, supported

tho facts had been carefully investigated by

b was found that the laches or failure to
make the return in time was due to a de
faulting clerk, and that it was only right
that this relief should lie grunted.
Mj'. Butt, of the Twenty-fourth district,
said it was ovii’snt there wus no intention
on the part of the company to do a wrong

ident purpose as to Georgia's title to the

rights, privileges and immunities, with tho

touching them, and waking up discovered
the stemner sinking. The men on deck in
an instant were left, struggling in the water,
but all escaped ashore except the engineer,
who was drowned. The cause of the acci
dent was that the seacock gas left open and
the water ran into the vessel. She was
commanded by Cant. McCotter, and wus
valued at #2,500. The vessel now lays in 25
feet of water, Imt Mr. Chalkcr says she
will lx: raised immediately. The drowned

MILL HANDS IDLE.
Tho War on tho Holding of Two Jobs
Pittsburg, Aug. I.—To-day inaugurated
wlint from present indications will be the
most serious misunderstanding that has
arisen for years between the Amalgamated
Association of Iron and Steel Workers and
the manufacturers. Already a number of
mills in the Mahoning Volley have lieen
closed down, and nearly 5,009 iron workers
aro out of employment, while the indica
tions are that before many days there will
be a still larger number of idle mills. Tho
trouble is caused by an attempt on the part
of tho Amalgamated Association to
enforce an old law in their constitution
which provides that no man shall hold two
jobs at, a mill. At tho recent annual con
vention of the iron workers an amendment
stigmatizing the holder of two jobs as a
“black sheep” was passed, and it was de
cided to enforce the law after Aug. 1.
NON-UNION MEN THE TROUBLE.
The members of the association who were
notified of tho action taken, as a rule gave
up tlieir extra jobs, but trouble arose over
non-members who refused. At tho mills of
Painter A Sons, Brown. Bonnell ft Cos., the
Mahoning Valley Iron f., and Cartwright,
McCurdy & Cos., of Youngstown, 0.. tbe
mill owners refused to discharge those men
and the mills closed down this morning.
Some trouble is expected at the Solar
iron works in this city and at the iron
works at Akron, 0., and Girard, Pa. The
manufacturers refuse to recognize the law
on the ground that it was not, included in
the agreement of tho scale of wages they
signed. Both sides are determined to main
tain tho stand taken, and unlessan amicable
settlement is reached soon several thousand
more mill workers may be out of employ
LABOR’S RIVAL ORDERS.
The Knights and Amalgamated Miners
Pittsburg, Aug. I.—The last of the
Pinkerton guards, fifty in number, were
withdrawn from Hie coke regions to-dnv,
and passed through this city this afternoon
on route to their homes in Chicago. Tne
coke workers made no demonstration on
tlieir leaving. President Ileinmel, of tbe
Miners Association, at West I else ring, was
arrested yesterday and held in $1,00!) bail
on a charge of conspiracy and interfering
with men at work. He was one
of the principal leaders in the strike, and
his arrest caused soino excitement. This
evening the coke strikers commenced voting
to decide which of the rival labor organiza
tions, the Knights of Labor or the Miners’
Amalgamated Association, is to boabsorlied
by the other. The feeling between the mem
bers of the two associations is so bitter that
the amalgamated officials have refused to
meet with the Knights of Labor in tho con
ference with the operators looking to the
linal adoption of the sliding scale of wages.
Tho original stork of the boot occurs wild
on the shores of tho Mediterranean sea, in
Greece, and grows wild in some of the is
lands of the Atlantic occeftu. This is the
common mangold, of which there are two
sulKsjieeies. It was cultivated for food by
the Greeks, as it is at the present day by
the Persians and natives of India. The’ Ro
mans wore acquainted with two varieties.
Clinrlomngno ordered the cultivation of the
beet on his estate, mid from this it was dis
tributed throughout Europe, and has ex
tended to Nort h America.
Prof. Aimsby, of the Wisconsin Erperi
ment Station, says that the greater the dif
ference of the temperature between milk
and the surrounding medium the more rapid
will be the creaming. In u series of ex
periments the amount of cream obtained
ranged from 92 to 94 per cent, of the whole
by the well-known Cooley system, while the
amount of fat in the skim milk was re lived
from 7to 2 jxt cent. It was plain from the
results obtained that when milk is promptly
set in water containing plenty of broken
lee, and having a temperature slightly above
freezing, as complete acreamiug is obtained
ill eleven or twelve hours as is possible by
any method. '

A Defeat End3 All Her Hopes of Win
ning’ tho League Pennant.
Charleston, S. C., Aug. I.—Memphis
effectually squelched Charleston's last hope
of winning the pennant this afternoon.
The game was close and exciting, but it was
very decisive and was played in a hurry.
Hungler and Hines wore offered by the
locals, and Black and McKeogh by tho vis
itors. George McKeogh, of Memphis,
was put up for umpire. The bleach
ing boards crowd thinks that ho
favored his side, but as a matter of fact his
umpiring was as fair a.s could be expected.
On Saturday the locals batted Black out of
the box. To-day they sawed the air for live
innings, getting only one hit. In
the sixth they lit on him and
batted him for seven hits, which netted
them 4 runs. Hungler. on tho other hand,
was hit easily, and despite the errors of the
visitors, they won the game. It was the
splendid work of tho outfield that saved
Charleston a very disastrous and disgraceful
defeat. Tho community is beginning to
four on Hungler. The score by innings and
