The duelling pistol now occupies its proper
place, in tho museum of the collector cf relics
of barbarism. The pistol ought to havo beside
it the pestle that turned out pilis like bullets,
to be shot like bullets at tho target of the
liver. But the pestle is still in evidence, and
will be, probably, until everybody has tested
tho virtue of Ayer's sugar coated pills. They
treat tho liver a3 a friend, not as an enemy.
Instead of driving it they coax it. They aro
compounded on the theory that tho liver does
its work thoroughly and faithfully under
obstructing conditions, and if the obstructions
are removed, the liver will do its daily duty.

LAUOR LEADERS TO MEET,
If They Accomplish Their Object a
General Strike "Will be Inaugurated.
A special from Columbus, O., of the
20th, savs the National Executive Board
of the Unitc-il Mine Workers adjourned
today, after having issued a call for a
conference of organized labor to be
held in St. Louis on August 20th. The
board reiected the proposition of the
Piltsburj? operators for a conference to
arbitrate the wage dispute in that dis
trict, claiming that such action would
be prejudicial to the interests of tho
miners at l;ug The board is ready U
consider overtures for the arbitratioA
of the issues of the great strike only
wheu the.se overtures (one from all
the operators in the competitive dis
trict, which includes Ohio, Indiana,
Illinois, West Virginia and Pennsyl
vania. Tho success or failure of the strike
hanga upon the St. Louis conference,
the call for which, has been endorsed
by Samuel (iompeips, president of the
American Federation of Labor, and J.
I'. Sovereign, general master workman
of the Knights of Labor. They main
tain that the iiirht now being waged
by tho miners is one of common inter
est to organized labor throughout the
country. At tho St. Louis conference
all labor oTgnni4itions will bo asked to
ioin issues with ihe miners. The fail
ure to secure a general suspension in
West Virginia has greatly interfered
with tho prospects of success, as the
coal supplied from that and the few iso
lated districts is meeting the limited de
mand. The only hope of cutting oft"
this supply appears to lie in the refusal
of organized btbor in the ordinary
channels of tralfic and business to han
dle or use this coal. If the object of the
St. Louis conference is accomplished,
the strike will bo extended to near
ly every branch of labor in the coun
try. NECROKS C OXniCMN THE CRIME.

WEEK OF ENCOURAGEMENT.
rhe Coal 3IIners' Strike Likely to Be
Endsd Soon The Phenomenal
Strength of Wheat.
Messrs. R. G. Dun & Co. 's Weekly
Review of Trade, for the week ending
August 21st, says, in part: Not for sev
eral years have the telegraphic reports
from various cities in all parts of tho
country been so encouraging or shown
as uniform improvement as thi3 week.
The markets are galled crazy by some,
but fairly represent the people, whose
confidence in the future is strong and
increasing. Nothing appears to check
it. Rumors of injury to crops are not
sufficiently supported to have much in
fluence. The one temporary hindrance
is the strike of the bituminous coal
miners, which interferes as yet little
with industries, and teems hkel to
terminate within a week. The demand
for money improves, taking from New
York to the interior about half a mil
lion more than was received during the
week, and offerings of commercial ioans
are much larger, including consider
able iron and steel paper, and the
course of foreign exchange ii generally
interpreted a3 an indication that
special imports cannot be longer de
layed. The greatest gain has been agricul
turally. Corn has advanced a little iu
price, but is moving very largely, so
that the last year's surplus may soon
be marketed unless the new crop turns
out better than many now expect. Cot
ton declined an eighth because of an
estimate promising the largest crop
ever grown, but the gooda market is
decidedly improving, and eomo of the
large mills, after a few weeks of sus
pension have resumed work. Other
farm products are doing well also, but
wheat has advanced about 11 ij cents
for the week on actur.l transactions,
with heavy purchases for export. The
official estimate of the yield is entirely
disregarded, except as an admission
that the crop will bo larger than that ot
last j'ear, and it is commonly assumed
that the yield will be WO.WO, 00U bus-h-
els, or more, though recent reports ol
injurr, indicating the possibility ol
somewhat small outcome, have helped
the advance in prices. It is well to no
tice that corn reports continue ciort
than double last year's also, in three
weeks H, 51(5,5-14 bushel?, against 1,1K,
241 last year.
The iron and steel industry is push
ing forward in spite of the still unset
tied strike of bituminous coal miners,
and the enormous purchases of ere at
Cleveland, and also of billets at Pitts
bur", snow ho utmost confidence it
the future.
The oid difficulty remains in the boo
and shoe industry, dealers being un
willing to buy largely at the pric
which manufacture! b now ask, though,
during the past week the only chaugi
has been a slight advance on calf boots
The market for hides at Chicago i
again much stronger, prices having ad
vanced with very narrow transactions
and buj-ers pre holding ott'in the belie
that prices have reached the top.
In the woolen business a constant in
crease appears in the number ot estab
lishments at work, and the demtind fo
goods has much increased.
I allures for the week Lave been 21.

A KACE IUOT IN TEXAS.
Negroes and Whites Arrayed Against
Each Other at Leonard, Texas.
Earl Meadows, a young white man,
was killed by a negro under peculiar
circumstances at Leonard, Texas, a few
days ago. The whites held a meeting
and warned all the negroes to leave.
All left but one, and he was severely
whipped by a whito man. It appears
that the negroes had not gone very far,
and the whipping infuriated them to
such an extent that they procured arms
and are now said to be marching upon
the town. Two wagon loads of negroes
left Clinton on the afternoon of the
19th, en route for Leonard and squads
have left Ladonia and Bonham to join
tho Clinton party. The night watch of
the town has been double, arms havo
been gathered and ammunition cen
tered at necessary points to defend the
tOWD.

and then they were fired together.
The firing was mainly for the purpose
of testing the foundation upon which
the battery rests. The target was sta
tioned on Morris Island beach, four
and one-half miles distant. It was semi
officially stated that the test was satis
factory to the officers in charge.
