TROUBLES OF LABOR.
The Oregon Improvement's Dispute With
Seattle, Feb. 24. The dispute which
has been in existence for some time be
tween the Oregon Improvement com
pany and its miners at Newcastle has re
sulted in the reinstatement of about
forty-five of the miners who were driven
out after the riots two years ago and
ejectment proceedings against six of the
leaders of the discharged men. , The
trouble began with a dispute over the
division of the work, the leaders of the
miners having demanded that seven
men should not get a new breast of coal
to dig in their regular turn, on the
ground that those men had refused to
divide day work with miners who had
no breast. I he mine being overmanned
January 15th, Corey discharged twenty
one men and the leaders in the trouble,
and brought in a force of Sullivan's de
tectives to guard the mine. He con
tinued to discharge men until he had
gotten rid of eighty-two or eighty-three of
tne taction' wbicn nad remained in con
trol since the riot of two years ago. He
hired forty-five of the Knights of Labor
who were driven out at that time but
have since remained, in the neighbor
This has caused a bitter feeling among
the discharged men. They claim that
the reinstated men are blacklegs, and
that Corey is trvinz to break up the or
ganization. This Corey denies. The
newly hired men deny that they are
blacklegs, as they have kept up their or
ganization and are working at union
wages. They claim that the only ditler
ence is that now they are on top. They
claim that Corey invited them to go to
work, but Corey says the seven men to
whom the old union objected filled the
vacancies as fast as he made them with
out his inviting the men to return.
There is no danger of a breach of the
peace, and the detective force has been
reduced to four men. William Penman,
the leader of the discharged men, is ex
pected home from the Miners' National
Convention at Columbus, Ohio, in a day
or two, and then some action will be
taken. The old federation, to which the
discharged men . belong, has recently
joined the Knights of Labor, so that
both factions belong to that organiza
tion. EAST ON THE SILVER QUESTION.
Harrison Relieves the Democrats Are at
Washington,' Feb. 24. The president
will go away from- Washington, prob
ably the next day alter congress auiourns.
He will go up into- Maryland or one of
the branches of Chesapeake bay, where
some Philadelphia friends of his have a
country house arranged as a hunting
headquarters, ine president win spend
several days duck hunting. A friend of
the president said yesterday that Harri
son was comfortable over the silver
situation. He thought that all of the
disadvantages connected with the ques
tion were now with the democrats. The
republican party in congress had passed
about all the silver legislation that the
financial world could stand. It had
done as much for the true interests of sil
ver as could be fairly done. The adi
ministration would not have been un
favorable to the proposition to buy all
the silver outstanding in the market if
this measure could have been accepted
by the advocates of free coinage as the
end of the question for the time being.
This.was plainly intimated to the ex
treme silver men through the treasury
officials early in the session. The ex
treme silver men were at first disposed
to accept the proposition as the best
thing they could get; but when they
passed the free coinage bill through the
senate so easy they became elated, and
thought they could, carry it through the
house, and they scornfully rejected the
moderate proposition of a compromise.
LOOK AT YOUR POLICY.
A Shaky Illinois Insurance Company
Doing Business in Other States.
Chicago, Feb. 25. Attornev-General
Hunt today filed a bill in the circuit
court to dissolve the Consolidated Mut
ual Fire Insurance Company, of Chicago.
An examination into the affairs of the
company in November last disclosed the
fact that its capital was impaired $39,
000. Auditor Pavey discovered that
ninety pages had been cut or torn from
the journal of the company. It. was
claimed that the book-keeper tore the
pages from the book to conceal errors
which they contained and the incompe
tent manner in which the book was
kept. Insurance risks in force amount
to $3,113,000. The company is not licens
ed to transact business outside of Illi
nois, and it is said has unlawful risks in
other states amounting to almost $3,000
000. In January, 1891, the company
ceased 'business, and made a pretended
assignment to George H. Ritchey. The
attorney-general seeks to set aside the
assignment and to have a receiver ap
pointed to take charge of the assets and
wind up the business. Judge Collins
has issued an injunction restraining the
disposition of the assets until a final
United States Minister Packeoo Arrives
: Safely at Guatemala. ...
San Francisco, Feb. . 24. Guatemala
advices of January 29 say that United
States Minister Pacheco" was cordially
received by the Guatemalans, a special
train being sent seventy-five miles to the
coast for,, his conveyance. A banquet
was tendered him , and he was serenaded
by a band the day . after his arrival.
Colonel Toriilos, commandant of the
post of San Jose, was aboard the Pacific
Mail Company's steamship and apolo
gized to Captain Johnson as representing
the company, for the seizure by the
Guatemalan government of some arms,
which had been brought by one of the
company's steamer for Salvador.
ASK FOR A CHAKTKK.
And Will Build Pacific Cable With
out a Subsidy.
Washington, Feb. 24. The opponent
of the Pacific cable subsidy scheme have
a new weapon to use in their fight against
the subsidy act. Another company haa
appeared, which proposes to build a
longer cable without a subsidy. The
Pacific Cable Company -asks the govern
ment to give them f 3,000,000 to aid in
laying the cable to Honolulu, a distance
of 2000 miles; the other company pro
poses to build to Shanghai, 6500 miles,
and asks for nothing but a revival of the
charter granted to it by congress August
15, 1876, and which expired in 1879, no
tble having beeu laid. - This, old ..com
pany was formed by Celso Cassar Marino,
and in it were Senator Iceland Stanford,
J. C. Flood and several other California
millionaires. They were promised a
subsidy of $1,000,000 by the Hawaiian
government as soon as thecable was laid.
The capitalists did not see a sufficient
and speedy return for their money, -the
scheme fell through and the charter
lapsed. . Marino now represents to con
gress that the company ie ready to go
ahead without any subsidy if the charter
is revived. Opposition to the subsidy
idea is very strong, and to defeat it an
extension of the old company's charter
will be urged.

GLOWING CROP PROSPECTS.
The Heavy Fall of Snow has Brightened
the Outlook for Wheat.
Tacoma, Feb. 25. The prospects for
the Washington wheat crop of 1891 have
been brightened very considerably by
the heavy fall of snow east of the moun
tains during the last week. Superinten- .
dent Cardin, of the Northern Pacific
Elevator Company, who have just re

moisture needed to insure a wheat crop."
He estimates the entire crop of the
Northwest for 1891 at 16,000 ,KX bushels,
12,000,000 of which were for export.
From advices he has received, the acre
age in Washington this year will be 15
per cent, greater than that of 1890,
which, other things being equal, will
produce a crop of 18,000,000 to 19,000,000
bushels. The elevator company is re
ceiving daily consignments of grain to
