CmoAGO, April " 3. The ivinged
angel of jMiace, wliicu yestorilay
hovered over the master plumbers
and their striking employes has disap
peared, and in her place, figure Pink
erton'ri men. The master plumbers
claim that thestrikers are intimidating
the men who refuse to strike, hence
they request Pinkerton's men. The
strikers deny this and claim the hir
ing of special police is simply a
game of bluff. 15oth sides are firm in
their determination to hold out, and
the fight promises to be a long one.
The master carpenters association has
decided in view of the threatened
strike to make S hours adaj's work
and the pay 35 cents per hour, and
the men will be informed of this on
pay dfiy which is Friday. The car
penters demand 40 cents per hour and
8 hours. If the advice of conservative
men be taken, these terms will be ac
cepted and no strike will occur.
The probabilities of a general cigar
makers' strike are gradually foiling
away. The manager of the Phrcnis
factory sent for his men to-day, and
nf ter a brief talk with them regarding
their mutual interests acceded to
their terms. and the men will return to
work on Monday.

Newiout, R. I., April 3. The latest
returns from Providence show no
member of the legislative ticket
elected there. The complexion of
the legislature depends on that dis
trict, as well as the choice of the
governor in the assembly. News
from various parts of the
state, fully confirm the earlier reports
that the outlook and that tho legisla
ture will be Republican, and that
Governor Ladd will be elected hi3 own
successor. The vote for Ladd
shows that with a very little
more work ho would have
had a plurality instead of Davis. In
1889 Davis had 4,419 more votes than
Ladd, but this time he lacks 573 of be
ing even with him, as the following
shews: Votes for governor, 1890,
Davis, 19,659; Ladd, 19,086; A. B.
Chase, 690; J. H. Larry, 1,829.
The total vote of the state "Wednes
day was 41,361. Davis made losses
well nigh all over the state. One sen
ator was gained to the Republicans in
Warren, and a representative in Bar

output improved slightly last week,
the average daily manufacture being
22,900 barrels; the aggregate produc
tion, 137,450 barrels; against 133,720
barrels the week before and 90,870
barrels for the corresponding time in
1SS9. The mills so far have not suf
fered any special inconvenience from
the coopers' strike. Most of the firms
have conceded to the demands of the
men and for a while at least will pay
33 cents for barrels, instead of 32 and
33 cents as for some time past
The inactivity of the flour market
is the same. There is very little de
mand except for small lots, for prompt
shipment, and the current output will
be reduced at it is exceeding tho cur
rent sales. Prices are rather easy
and have a downward tendency. The

to tho contrary by July 1, will remain
in force for another year.
The Pillsbury-Washburn company
desires to lease this property, and i3

for its futnro control. The directors
prefer to sell rather than lease, but
have refused to dispose of the plant

The Alaska Commercial Company
Not Abandon Alaska.
San Fjuncisco, April 1. Louis
Schloss, of tho Alaska Commercial
company, who returned last night
from a trip east, said to-day: "A large
number of people erroneously suppose
that the loss of the sealing lease means
to its an absolute retirement from all
our interests in Alaska There could
be no greater mistake. Our trading
posts and many other interests
are in no wise affected by the
success of the Tevis-Liebs syndicate
in securing the lease. Furthermore,
the firm of Hutchison, Kohl, Philips
& Co. still retains the Russian lease,
and will hold it nearly twenty years
more, and some of those who are in
terested in the Alaska company are
members of that firm. Some of us
are also heavy stock holders in salmon
canneries in Alaska, and altogether
there is plenty to do for us as well as
for others. A movement is on foot
among salmon canners, and agents to
come to some understanding where
by the production of the com
ing season will not be as large as it
was last year. Most careful estimates
show that there is still a stock rang
ing from 200,000 to 250,000 cases of
1889 salmon in the hands of producers.
Prices have not the firm tendency
which agents would like to observe,
nor is there any immediate prospect
of the disposal of the carry-over stock.
Packers are now on the threshold of
a new season, and naturally some of
them are debating what shall be done
to prevent a recurrence of the over
production. The best authorities
agree that a pack ranging
from 1,250,000 to 1,300,000 cases this
year will be ample for all purposes,
and a few of tho canners are thinking
of limiting things, so that more than
this quantity may not be put up. As
far as possible, cauning of white sal
mon will also be prevented. They
are a3 good as red, but consumers
cannot be said to be used to them,
and those that have been sold have
acted to the detriment of the market
for red fish."
