St. Louts, July 21 Train men on
the Vnndnlia & St Louis train due

this side of Indianapolis, the
conductor discovered four rough
lookiug men on the rear plat
form of the baggage car. He ordered
them off, but as tho train started to
go they got on the rear platform of
the tender, where they were all again
found when the train reached Green
up Crossing, where they were forcibly
ejected from the train and moved
away, but as the train was passing a
clump of bushes near the Crossing
they opened lire from revolvers and
sent some twenty bullets whistling
through the baggage and express
cars and passenger coaches. Luckily
nobody was shot but there were sev
eral narrow escape. The tiain was
brought to a halt, and a posse of cit
izens organized at once and immedi
ate search wa3 begun. It is thought
the object was to rob the train.
AX ADVERSE T.EPORT.
Washington, July 22. In his re
port to secretary Whitney of the trial
of the guns of the cruiser Atlanta
Capt Bunco says not only were the
gun carriages disabled, as heretofore
reported, but also tho arrangement of
the battery is bad, as some of the
guns have to be abandoned by the
crews that other guns may be fired at
the target. Commenting on the re
sults of the battery trial, secretary
Whitney said: ''The reports are not
very favorable as to the first trial of
gunsbut as yet no matters of great
moment have turned up.

should have a cruise at sea sufficient
ly to subject her to a trial of all
weathers. Her battery should be
tested by actual firing until its work
ing characteristics are determined
and its defects are discovered. For
these purposes the board should be
appointed and the matter settled at
the earliest practicable day.'
A STUBBORN CONTEST.
Pittsburg, July 22. The coke
strike just ended was one of the most
stubbornly contested battles ever
fought between capital and labor.
For eleven weeks and four days the
fight went on. The amount of money
lost by such enforced idleness cannot
be calculated, but it reaches millions.
When the strike began fonr-fifths of
the 11,C3D men in the region had
money of their own, but few of them
now have money enough to take them
out of the district if they wanted to
go. The operators are also very
heavy losers; the pumps have been
kept running at all pits: the pit and
yard bosses, superintendents and
clerks have been drawing salaries
and mules getting fat on oats and
hay that they did not earn. At West
Leisenring, whero the Pinkerton men
have been stationed, the expense has
been over $1,000 a day since the
striko began. Besides this the ovens
have become badly out of repair;
fully one-third of them all over the
region have to be overhauled before
coal can again be put into them.
Then, too, tho coke trade has fallen
off, and it will take time and money
to build it up. Tho estimated actual
expense to operators has been from
$700,000 to $1,000,000, while their loss
entire will foot up over $2,000,000.
London, July 22. Tho marquis of
Salisbury, replying to a deputation
which called on him to urge the gov
ernment to take some action to pro
tect British trade from the effect of
foreign competition assisted by
bounties, said it was impossible to
speak too strongly, of the injustice
which the foreign bonnty system in
flicted upon British workmen. The
European conference, ho said, would
soon consider the matter, nnd in the
meantime ho could only say that
there were two ways for Englishmen
to deal with their assailants in this
centest: if reasoning failed, English
men might return blows.

That is to say, your lungs. Also
your breathing machinery. Very
wonderful machinery it is. Not only
the larger air-passages, but the thous
