A MAN named Smith , while digging in one
of the excavations about two miles south
of Omaha , found a fire place , a lot of char
coal and a number of fragments of curious
looking utensils. Several pieces were put
together and were found to belong to a
small boat-shaped piece of earthenware ,
with a round opening in the top , which was
evidently used in cooking , as the marks ol
fire on the bottom are distinctly visible.
The excavation in which these things were
found was about seventy-five feet across
and had a ridge of earth thrown up around
it. Mr. Smith thinks that this once formed
the foundation of a hut inwhich families
of the aboriginies lived. He has written

BUSINESS JSEFORE PLEASURE.
President Cleveland A'oto at TTorJi on His
Message and mil 2fot be JDot/iered by Oflicc-
Washington special : Among the presi
dent's callers to-day was a man named
Daily , who used his hands as propellers , his
legs having been amputated near the thighs
and only the stumps remaining. It was
remarked by all present , the number of
pretty girls and the well-to-do aspect of the
majority of the callers to-day , but none
were more cheery and appreciative than-
the president's maimed visitor. Calling
him by name the president stooped down
to grasp one of the hands which served as
feet , and the poor fellow straightened up
visibly after the kindly greeting from the
head of the nation. Daily belongs in Phil
adelphia , and is employed as an engineer
on one of the local steamers. The trip to
Boston seemed to have exhilarated the
president , and few of his callers this after
noon were permitted to pass without an
expression of plensuie at meeting them.
The president's rule not _ to receive any
visitors , except upon purely oilicial busi
ness and at a tri-weekly afternoon recep
tion goes into effect to-morrow. He pro
poses to devote his principal attention
Iroin now on until congress meets to the
preparation of his annual message , and
will not be bothered about appointments.
NEW SUGARING PROCESS.
The following telegram has been received
at the department of agriculture :
"FT. SCOTT , Kan. , Nov. 8. To the Com
missioner of Agriculture : We finished boil-
ing eighty-thruo tons of Louisiana cane to
night ; made nearly 19,000 pounds of
strike. A weighed portion run into cen-
trifugul gave 54 per cent of dried sugar.
This will be more than 120 pounds of
sugar per ton. The pane juice had 10 per
cent of sucrose , 1 8-10 per cent of glucose ,
and 14 % per cent of total solids. It would
have ma do only SO pounds by the old pro
cess. Wo have increased the yield fully 40
pounds per ton. Sugar of fine quality.

THE CASC OF CARLISLE.
Representative Wellborn of Texas , who
is one ot the ablest and most experienced
parliamentarians in the house , was asked
to-day what effect a contest over Carlisle's
seat should there be a contest would
have upon his candidacy for the speaker-
ship of the house. Wellborn replied :
"Should there be a contest , over Carlisle's
scat the house itself will , in some suitable
way , select a committee on elections , and
thus Carlisle will be relieved of any possi
bility of embarrassment on that score. To
hold tliat Thobe's contest with Carlisle
disqualifies the latter for speaker is illng-
iral and absurd. If such holding were fol

WHAT MIGHT HATE SEE\
Pittsburg dispatch : Upon the arrival at
Dubois , Pa. , of the mail train on the Buf
falo , Rochestertfc Pittsbnrg railroad to-day
the car inspector , while the passengers were
getting on and off at the depot , discovered
three dynamite bombs and caps fastened
under the springs of the rear coach. The
bombs were carefully removed , and there
were many pale faces among the passengers
when they learned the terrible fate they
had so narrowly escaped. The trainstarts
from Punxuatawaney every morning , and
it is undoubtedly at that place the bombs
were placed uner the springs , as it only
makes short stops between there and Du
bois. It is twenty miles from the place of
stalling , and how it was possible for the
train to run that distance over short
curves with that amount of dynamite and
cups udder the springs of the coach is a
mystery. Thirty-four persons weieinthe
coach. Suspicion points directly to no
person as perpetrator of the deed. The
matter will be thoroughly investigated by
the railroad authorities , and an effort
made to bring the criminal to justice.

on In this state which involves as many
people , as much capital and a principle of
vital importance. This is thu contest in
progress between the knit goods manu
facturers and the Knights of Labor , which
now has become an open war upon the latter

owners have closed against all Knights of
A gentleman acquainted with the history of
the light declares that within the past two
years the Knights of Labor have been actively
organizing the knit goods employes and that
as'fas-t as they became organized they began
to subject thu manufacturers to annoyances
in the way of demand touching the conduct
of their business ; that finally the manufact
urers formed an association "which embraced

dam , here a boy , a member of the Knights
of Labor , was promoted to a new and hitherto
unopcrated jack in a spinning ic-om. The
spinners' union , an inside organization of the
Knights , objected. The proprietors said they
would let the machine lie idle. The spinners
demanded a promise that a member of their
union should" be put on in ca ethe jack should
be started at any time in the future. This
was refused , and the spinners struck , thereby
closing the mill. The other Amsterdam mills
decided to stand br the mill in trouble and a
lockout followed. Mr. Barry of the Kntehts
of Labor declared the strike unjust but was
unable to DUB an end to it , though the mills
were thrown open from October 4 to 9. The
employes not returninir , it was declared that
all the mills in the state should declare si lock
out Oclober 10 , and it was done. Since then
the mills hav-i been gradually tilling up v.ith
non-union men , and one local assembly of
knights has thrown up its charter. Two mills ,
on the other hand , have yielded.
Messrs. Bailey and .McGuireof the executive
board , have been endeavoring to settle the
matter , but the mill owners refuse to treat
ALBANY , N. Y. , Nov. 10. The executive
committee of the national knit goods associa
tion and Messrs. Bailey and McGuirc of the
national executive committee of the Kmchts
of Labor met here to-day with reference to a
settlement of the differences now existing in
the knit < roods district. Messrs. Bailey and
McGuire oitered the following as the only ba
sis on which they would settle on behalf of the
Knights of Labor : That all the former em
ployes should be reinstated in their former
places , and that the people who had taken the
places of the former cmplo\ should be sus
pended until they should have made a settle
ment with their organization for violations of
its laws and rules.
The proposition was rejected and the fol
lowing was submitted by the knit goods peo
ple as a basis upon which the manufacturers
would open their mills to the Knights of La
bor : "Upon the right to empoly or not to
employ , discharge or not discharge whom we
think best as our employes , and that we con
tinue as we deem proper as employes those
who remained in our employ at the time of
the lockout or strike , and Chose whom we
have since that time 'jinploved. "
This was in turn rejected by Messrs. Bailey
and McUuire , who withdrew"fiom the confer
ence with the statement that the negotiations
were ended , after which the executive com
mittee of the knit srcods association , after full
consideration , adopted the following : "The
mills will be opened to all persons , whether
they have been previously in our employ or
not on the basis of an agreement by those
whom they may employ that they will ac
knowledge and respect the right of the cm-
plover to hire and discharge as he deems best ,
and not interfere with oilier employes , includ
ing tl os who have been at work duriug the
recent st n e and lockout. "

MISS CLEVELAND'S LATEST.
New York special : The Sun's Utica cor
respondent says that Publisher Elder , of
Literary Life , was last week refused admis
sion to Miss Cleveland's house , and a note
from Mhs Cleveland was handed him , stat
ing that hereafter all transactions between
them would have to be done through a
third party , a gentleman , who is a friend of
Miss Cleveland's. Mr. Elder , the dispatch
says , was very coolly treated in the village ,
and departed very much discomfitted.
Among the reasons given by Miss Cleveland
for severing her relations with the paper , it
is stated , are Mr. Eldei 's insertion of an
article to which she objected , and her re
ceipt of Fetters from George Parsons La-
throp and Edgar Fawcett , saying that they
could not get their pay for articles fur

ning figures outa probable tie in the senate-
after the 3d of next March. It says that
on March 3 the terms of sixteen republican-
and nine democratic senators will expire.
Of the sixteen republicans who will retire
twelve will certainly be succeeded by men
of the same party. Messrs. Sherman , Al-
drich and Edmunds have been re-elected"
and the legislatures of Connecticut , Maine ,
Massachusetts , Michigan , Minnesota , Ne
braska , New York , Pennsylvania and Wis ,
consin are republicans. The democrats
lose one of the nine whose terms expire Fair
of Nevada and are secure of the remain J
der , so that if the legislatures of Calfornia ,
[ ml ana and New Jersey prove to be demo
cratic the result of the change in the senate-
after March 3 will be a net loss of three to-
the republicans , a democrat having been
chosen to succeed Mahone from Vir *
ginia. The present senate stands forty- I
four republicans , thirty-four demo
crats and ' 'Readjuster" Riddle-
berger. but Senator Van Wyck comes
back from Nebraska as a people's repre
sentative. He made his fight before the
whole people and won on the issue of oppo
sition to corporations. During his present
term he has not hesitated on occasions to
antagonize his party , and under the condi
tions of his re-election he may be more in
dependent still. Leaving Van Wyck and
Riddleberger out of the count the next sen
ate will stand , provided the democrats se
cure the three doubtful states mentioned ,
thirty-seven republicans , thirty-seven dem < ' 1
ocrats. Thus Messrs. Van Wyck and Rid
dleberger would hold the balance of power.
In connection with this probable situation
it is a fact worth mentioningthat both Van
Wyck and Riddleberger have given evi
dence of a kindly feeling for the administra
tion. In the event of any conflict between
the executive and the senate the two votes
from Nebraska and Virginia would deter
mine the issue. Van Wyck and Riddle n
berger would have it in their power , by co
operation with the democrats , to organize n
the senate ; or should yan Wyck vote with
the republicans and Riddleberger with the
democrats on the question of organization ,
there would be a tie , and there is no vice-
president to-throw the deciding vote.
