, Mass. , March 20.
There ace now 2.COO Pacific mil
operatives , ono-halfof the whole num
ber employed , engaged in the strike
and their idleness necessitates cessa
tion from work of a largo sLaro of the
remainder. The mill authorities say
that to-day will decide their plans for
the nextfow weeks the strikers will
return to work or all these remaining
will leave. Much depends on the result -
sult of tlio arbitrary commission's con
ference with the treasurer and direc
tors at Boston. No concession is expected -
pectod trpm this source and in that
event further argument with the
strikers of course would bo of no avail.
A muss meotiiiR of about 500 , four-
i fills of which were girls , was hold
on the commons this afternoon , but
; he meeting lacked organization , and
ip speakers had been provided. The
girls were very undecided as to what
course to pursue. A committee was
appointed to wait upon Superintend
ents Stone and Parker to see if
my concession could bo gained.
Superintendent Stone said that
10 concession would bo granted. It
s understood Mr. Parker will make
a similar reply. The committee , con
sisting of Mayor Breen and two
others , who were to interview Treas
urer SalatonstaU'at Boston this even-
ng , started for there , but were deliv
ered from going by a message that the
reasurer would have nothing to say
o them. Both sides remain hrm , but
.ho striken are utterly disorganized.
They have no union on which to rely ,
no.jJi adjonj , and no definite
dea < of thelF future "oourso.
Probably the Central mill will
ihut down entirely to-morrow and the
argor part of the machinery of the
other mills probably will also bo stop-
ted. This can hardly bo avoided , as
about 2,500 hands , almost half the
whole numbetof opor.tivos uro now

lelvillb's report of the Jeannette
xpedition has reached the state do-
lurtment , in substance as follows :
DoLong's instructions , dated Gape
Smma , Bennett Island , August 0h ,
881 , were that forty should go nouth
o Magnetic , if over ice , and if in
teats to the Siberian roast and make
or the mouth of the Lena. If the
> oats got separated the undorstand-
ng was. to go to the Lena and
ip the stream to the settlement. The
mats separated on the night of Bep-
ember 12th , 1881 , fifty miles north-
abt of Bukia , and Melville readied
lie Lena on September IGth and
Bukoff September 2Gth. Tried .o
; at up the river with native guides ,
jut the ice and exhausted condition
f the men compelled their return ,
'ho natives gave them quarters and a
uanity of fish and decayed geogo.
ictoberSthn Human exile discover-
d them and divided liin fund and
wont buck and told the commandant.
October 29th the exile returned with
supply of food and word that the
ominandant would bo at BukofF No-
ember lat with deer and sleds to ros-
uo the party and take them to Bolnia.
'he oxil on return mot two of tbo
rat cutter's party at Kumurt. Mel-
illo at once started for Belnia to in-
erct'pt the commandant , but missed
lim by taking a difieront road , leaving
) anoriliovvor , whoso eves had recov-
red , in charge of the party with in-
( ructions to follow Melville to
ielnia as soon as possible. Melville
cached Belnia November 2d
nd found the men in an
xhaustcd condition. From them
10 learned what had occurred
fter the separation np to October 1 ,
lie latest anythiag was hoard of Do
jong. Do Long's party crossed the
ena to the west banks'on October
at , to a summer hunting ledge called
Jatordn. The tooa of Erickson being
mputatod because they were frozen.
10 was drawn on an unprovisod sled
nd hauled by his companions .who
wore hardly able to walk because of
rozon feet and logs. They proceeded
, outli aqain , crossing the Lena and
laving to wade. Edckson died Go
ober 6th , and was buried in the
jena. The party was then in a de
plorable condition , having lost their
tog meat and being on an allowance
of three ounces of alcohol per man per
lay , but they proceeded south until
) ctobor Oth , wherf Do Long sent
fyordorraan and Neros ahead to seek
relief. These two men after fourteen
days of terrible suffering reached Bol <
oour and were cared for by the com-
mandant. Hero they sent a dispatch
to the United States minister at St
Petersburg. The commandant after
wards supplied Melville Novombo
5th , at Btinanloup t upper Bolnrn
the natives giving Melville Do Long's
records loft there by Do Long. Melville
villo says from all the circumstances
ho believes Do Long and party are
northward of the Lena , between Bis
tor Ancck and Bolcour , and asks au
thority to send Ny order man am
Noros ahead to their relief.

A Plea for the 'Dond.
It is not claimed that General Our-
field was a perfect man. There are no
perfect men. It is not claimed thai
his is the greatest name m American
history. Among superlative men it is
difficult to decide. It is simply claimed
that ho had heart warm for his country
and a head clear for its welfare Road
by the cold light of history of his ns-
sass nation did not add any artificial
aids 'o his reputation. It simply em-
ahat-i/.ed the qualities ho possessed.
Before it , ho had boon a notable
igure , but not a central figure. When
ill eyes were turned upon him with an
ntorost which had never been iu thorn
jeforp the world learned that ho had
; hat in him whiok is not common
a all men. It saw him as a splendid
; ype of American manhood , with a
vista of struggles and trials strotoh-
ng behind the present which had so
suddenly become darkened. I bean -
; an to appreciate the lovcablo-
1C83 , the manliness , the endur-
ug consistency , the sturdy liberal
ly , and the intellectual integrity
of a lito which had been as bracing
and as sweet and as healthful as a
naming in spring. There was also
shedding ever this its atmosphere of
regretful tonderqosa , the pathos of
lopes unfulfilled and of dreams that
lad faded into the darkness. Sunset
and sunrieo touched hands ever his
irostrato form ,
It is not intended here to dwell
upon the weariness cf the summer of
lain through whoso sultry , silent
lays his noble heart throbbed its way
nto eternity. This has boon written
of often enough before , and it seems
o jar harshly upon the feelings of
hpso who are now planting woods so
hickly over his memory that the
iaisies can scarcely struggle to the
ight. Jt ia only intended to saysomo
lungs about the "dead man -\hich came
often enough while ho was living from
ips that have since sworn a quick
allegiance to the newer administrator
of the presidential effects. In the
ull which followed a great tragedy
men were just and truth struggled
oven from the reluctant tongue of
elfishness and egotism. But the re
public has turned from Ood'c
aero into the world again , and
malice , shrewd to understand
our volatile and careless na-
ional temperament , cries out with
angry voice at the voiceless , and there
are few , to cross their swords in pro
motion over the grave around which ,
mt u few brief months ago , the na-
ion stood with bared head and rev-
rent mien. The baked moats of the
uneral have boon warmed ever for

The warmest admirers of our late

lint the republic shall forever wear
ablos for the dead. In the coursn of
aturo sorrow doffs its woods , and
what had been a poignant grief bo-
omos a pensive memory . They can
sk , and they do ask , however , that
10 no longer bo made the target for
do narrow , selfish faction which
termed against his administration
while ho lived. The fight now is a
award's fight. 'When ho was living
10 gave back blow for blow. Now
nit the silences have enfolded him
