Very llttlo difforoaco In the next presidential

ticket and the platform with Its pro
fuse pledges , the solo lasuo will be the
confidence of the people In the ropub-
lloiu party. Hayes and Wheeler In
1870 was about as weak a ticket as
could have boon nominated. Four years
later the republican party had stronger
men to nominate than Qen. Oarfield.

Signs of Impending labor troubles
In several of our largest industries
3 11 renewed attention to the necessi
ty for arbitration as a means of set
tling disputed between worklngmen
nd their employers. In England the
disastrous strikes and lockouts which
twenty yeata ago were so common
are now almost unknown owing
ti > the beneficial operation of
the boards of conciliation.
Iho universal testimony from
all the great industrial centers of
Great Britain commends the methods
as practical In theory , satisfactory in
operation and In every way fit to bo
transplanted to this country. It is
surprising , however , to note that only
ono state , Pennsylvania , has passed a
law providing for the creation of
boards of arbitration to settle labor
"Tho Pennsylvania bill provides
hat in response to proper applications
rom employers and workmen the
ourts shall issno licenses for the
establishment of tribunals or boards ,
n which each aide shall have an equal
number of elected members. There
H also to bo an umpire , mutually
chosen. After questions have boon
ubmltted , they are first to bo consid
ered by a conciliation committoo. If
a settlement cannot bo made by the
unanimous vote of this committee ,
ho question comes bjforo the full
joard , with the understanding that
the umpire's decision skall bo final.
This decision may bo mcdo a matter
of record In the courts , and judgment
may bo entered upon It and enforced. "
This is a stop In the right direction
which it Is hoped will bo followed
elsewhere. The chief advantage of
such a law lies in Its recognition by
the state of arbitration as a moans to
wards an end. That end is the pre
vention of great pecuniary loss to
members of society and the abolition
of brute force as an element in set
tling labor dlipatos. Suab disputes
are certain to arlao. In many In
stances they have their origin In Ig
norance of the sltuatlor , either on the
part of the employer or the employed
Often a clear understanding of the
facts as they exist would prevent either
oppression or unreasoning revolt
That Is the point where a board o
arbitration steps In between contend
hit ; parties and toes that justice 1
dono. No ouo denies that a ntrlkc
entails great lots upon some one , am
generally the greatest loss falls upon
those who are the least able to bear it
Any method which will tend to creator
or to maintain greater confidence between
twoon worklngmen and employer
ought to bo cultivated. This Is whj
the Pennsylvania law is a stop In th
right direction , as aubstltntlng Intel
llgonco for brute force and a poacoabl
settlement of disputes In the place o
riot , revolt and misery.

The "GruDKer Case. "
StnFnnds o Chronicle.
Tno higher courts of the nation are
gradually coming Into accord on the
juestlon of state control of railroads ,
i'ho most recent decisions by the supreme
premo court ot the United States
iroro on two cases carried up
'rom the supreme court of Illinois.
[ ) oth have boon pending for many
pears. Ono of those respects freights
tnd fires. In the heicht of the
; ranger excitement in 1873 , a pas-
longer named Lewis , traveling bo-
> woon two stations not far
opart on the Chicago , Bur-
lugton & Qalnoy railroad ,
rotnsod to pay the 20 cents faro
charged by the company , but tender
ed 18 cents , the minimum fixed by
ho state legislature. Ho was ejected ,
and sued the oondnctor for assault ,
who wna fined $10 and costs. The
onipany refused to pay the amount ,
and carried the case up , in the face of
a scries of advoreo decisions , till it has
ust boon decided against them by the
onrt of final appeal. The ground of
lefenso was that the state , In regu-
atlng freights and f ms , had violated
ts agreement by oontravcnit g some
occasions made to some of the
oada which had boeu absorbed
> y the Chicago , Birlijgton and
Juiuoy. At the name time a dccla-
on wns rendered in what Is known as
ho Elevator case , which Involved the
ame principles In both cases the
Ight of a state to regulate freights
nd fares was affirmed by the supreme
onrt of the United States , the state's
arlsdlotion in the matter being
illowod to extend BO far as to permit
ho cancellation , or at least the liberal
ntorprotntlon , of some portion of an
grcemont into which the state had at
omo previous time , perhaps , Incau-
louaiy entered ,
Thu tallroads have fought tholr
ght energetically on the various
loints raised , but nave boon In nearly
ivory caHo defeated. They have at-
empted to show that a state had no
Ight to forbid discrimination , to
ogulato freights and faros , or to ex-
rclso any jurisdiction over them
when they were organized under ono
tate , but operated in another. There
itwo boon numerous decisions on tha
irst point , their tenor scarcely differ-
ng in a single particular. Ono
cf thcso was delivered by Judge
Baxter , of the United States district
court of Northern Ohio , in the case of
a coal dealer , who brought suit against
a railroad because It carried coal for a
Ival dealer the name diatanco for
rom 30 to 70 cents par car load lusi.
L'ho plea of the defendant , that the
> atrou alluded to chipped a larger
imount of coal , did not influence the
court , which decided that the teati-
noriy showed unlawful discrimination.
The decision in regard to state con
rol when the matter has come
lirootly before the courts have
> eon uniformly against the railroads ,
[ 'ho third of the three principal points
ahed by the railroads that a state
n which they were not owned , but
merely operated , could not control
hem has been passed npon in throe
different cases , involving severally the
Jhlcagu and Northwestern , the
iVabubh , Western and Pacific and the
Chicago , Burlington and Qulncy. Ono
of thcso occurred in Wisconsin , ouo in
Iowa and ono In Illinois , The first
.wo went to the supreme court of the
United States , and In ono of
, hem the chief justice himself gave
; ho decision , affirming the right of the
state to forbid discrimination In
freights and faros , using almost the
language employed In the
"Granger" case quotod. The rights of
a state are therein clearly explained.
A atato has all the legislative rights
not forbidden by the constitution of
the United States , and la presumed to
bo right till its enactments have boon
proved wrong. That Is a kind ol
state sovereignty to which no
ono can object. Chief Justice
Waite says In this laat decision that a
state may make all regulations regard
ing railroads that they have not speci
fically permitted the road to make ,
but that such privileges , if granted ,
must not bo contrary to the constitu
tion and by-laws of slid state , That
Is , a goncral charter permission to a
railroad to fix freights and fares
according to their convenience does
not prevent legislation to prevent ex
tortion on the part of the company.
In roapcct to California wo are
doubly fortified , for onr constitution
gives the legislature all the power
that U necessary to suitably control
the oppressive corporations that an
unjust Provldonco has eaddlcd upot
us. Judging the supreme court ol
the United States as at present con
stituted , by this decision , wo feel jus
tified in expecting that when caeca in
which wo are locally Interested come
boforu it vro shall bo able to obtali :
such just decisions as thoao ronderov
in the cases that have gone up to 1
from Illinois , Wisconsin and Iowa.
According to those decisions ,
wo have the right to fix frolghti
and farea , to forbid rallroai
discrimination , and to do all this
whether a railroad Is organised within
the state or whether It la organized in
an adjoining state and operates a per
tlon of its line within oar limlto. The

How tuo Flret of the Kind fc'ver Used
In Naval Wnrofaro was
New York World.
The history of the rnm Manaceaa
and of her projector aud commander
honld bo placed npon recrd before it
s too late to get the ttirh , John A.
3tovcnaon , a wealthy retired BOS cap-
aln , was living In New Orleans at the
jronklnj , ' out of the civil war , and the
Hanasaao was wholly hiu conception
and invention , and it was pat Rfbat
mliroly at hla ccat nnd exDcnio , Bo-
ere the battle of Ball Kan ho pur
chased the Enoch Train , which had
jscn constructed in Boston and used
as tow-bent on the Mississippi river.
She was a doub'.o propeller , with two
engines and powerful machinery , 180
oct lonp , 22 feet beam , 8 feet hold
and about 90 tons burden. Ilo took
off her houses , cut her to her plank-
aheare aud then firat put on an arched
deck ot heavy timber , completely
covering her from ntcm to stern in the
ihopo of a turtle's ' back , finally plat
ing the whoh with two thicknesses cf
railroad Iron , bent and fitted so as to
: orm a smooth anrf&co over the whole
outside of the water's edge. Two
chort emoke-atacks alone protruded
above the oven surface of the whole
outside , The prow was constructed
with heavy Iron projecting in front
ibout 5 foot , 3i feat under water.
She was BtooreoT by a wheel entirely
covered under the dock. In case she
should bo boarded by the enemy , it
ivas so arranged that hot water could
yo thrown In streams npon the board-
ng party. The construction of such
a novelty nt Now Orleans attracted
public attention. It was visited by
nany hundreds of people , was called
; ho "Nondescript , " and was very genitally -
itally ridiculed by the public. But
Jtovonaon was Btrsng-mlnded , had
alth , had money , and was encouraged
) y his frloud , Captain Charles Wll-
ium Austin , now a resident of Sa-
'unnuh , Ga. , who superintended In
mr construction. It la from him
hat all the facts hnrcln mentioned
were obtained. When completed ,
which wan soon after the battle of Bull
tan , the next thing was to obtain a
crow. Federal gunboats , heavily
trmed , were lying nt the mouth of the
Vllaalsalppl , nnd it was thcpa which It
was intended she should attack. Commodore -
modoro Holllna , the confederate
lavfll compandor nt Now Orleans , re
used to detail men forservico in her ,
) ut gave consent to Captain Austin to
obtain volunteers , if ho could , { torn
out the navy. Nineteen were ob-
alnod. With these the Manaesaa
> roceoded to Fort Jackson , twenty-
.wo . miles above the blockading equad-
'on. ' Commander Holllns allowed
Stovonaen and Austin the use of hla
dispatch boat Iva with which to ro-
connoltre the nuemy in the afternoon ,
> reparatory for a night attack. They
approached to a point jast out of
ange. There lay the steam sloop
Richmond next to the cast bank of
ho river , with twenty-two guc j then
he sloop of-war Preble , with four-
eon guns , and next the steam sloop-
of-war Water Witch , with tix guns.
They all lay abreast , across the Mis
sissippi river at the head of the passes ,
and headed up stream , with their
springs out , guns shotted and all
rosdy for action nt a moment's notice.
Those four federal boats , migh.y
power for the single Nondefcrlpt , with
nineteen heroin and no guua , to at
tack. Some of the confederate naval
oflijers had said that the Nondescript
would bo blown out of water.
Leaving Fort Jackson at about 8
o'clock on the morning of October 12 ,
1801 , with Cuptain Auatln , her com-
mandur , BO the only mnn on deck and
inch of his men ut hla proper place
) olow , the ram proceeded to and ar
rived at the scene of action nbont 3
o'clock In the morning , The Richmond
mend had been selected by Captain
Austin in the nttcrnoon ua the fed
eral boot firat to bo attacked. Near-
.ng the Richmond the Nondescript
was got under the utmost headway ,
nnd not until oho was too near the
Richmond , and until it was too late
; o withdraw without discomfiture ,
perhaps disaster , was It discovered
that a schooner waa lying alongside
the Rlchmocd on the tide cf the at
tack , The ram proceeded all steam
on , nnd striking the schooner first out
rlntffo and ran the iron prow of
the Nondescript clear into the Rich
mond. The ram tnon h nlod off.
The schooner sank. The Richmond
discharged her broadside of puns at
the ram , but without effect. The
Richmond found herself disabled and
leaking , and withdrew , giving signals
of danger to the other boats , and the
blockading eqnadron all dlsap
poarod down the passes. The blow
which the ram struck the schooner
and the Richmond produced such a
concussion npon the ram as to disable
ono of her engines and render her un
fit to attempt further aggressions , but
it did not destroy Captain Austin's
footing on the dock. Thn ram waa
not aided or followed by any firo-
rafts , or any steamers or propeller
astern of her , nor were any shells
thrown or guns fired at the Federal
fhot , as some Federal accounts have
described. The ram was taken back
to Now Orleans and repaired , WEB
adopted by the Confederate authori
ties , nnd Mr , Stevenson was fully com
pensated for her. The Nondeecrlpt

eon Boon after the battle of Bull Run ,

Aged 15 years ,
On the casket waa a rich and beau-
Uul floral wreath of tea aud

rosea lualdo the casket , and a ho ivy
wreath cf white , purple and varlega-

At the foot of the casket waa &

wfta opened at the undertaker's cstab-
Islimunt , and the features were found
to be cilm nnd almost perfectly nat-
iral. The body had boon embalmed.
) n the head was a white lace cap , acd
hero was a white lace bow around the
nook. The dress was a white grcs
; rln fillk , and in the hands were
> laced n bunch of tea roaoa that had
lot lost their fragrance.
After the remains had boon dla-

jroper position , they having been
slightly moved by jolting on the
cars , they were removed in a hearse
o the residence of Mr. Gaorgo B.
Johnaon , No. 80 Clark street , whoae
wlfo ia a cousin of General Grant ,
where the caakot was again opened
aud the remains viewed by the rela
tives nnd a very few intimate friends
cf the family. After remaining at
the house about an hour , the funeral
cortege proceeded to Spring Grove
cemetery. It was composed of the
learao and aix carriages. No ser
vices were held at the house , as
t had been arranged that
everything should bo kept ns
quiet nnd private ns possible ,
; n accordance with the wishes of General -
oral Grant. The fuutral services had
already been held at the roaldenco cf
Mrs. Corbin , n daughter of the do-

was a devout member , and which she
attended regularly until last winter.

The cortege roaohod Spring Grove

friends attending the funeral , there
being no pall-boarors selected. The
party was joined at the grave by Mrs.
Amos Shlukle and family andJ. Craw

casket waa followed to the grave by
General Grant , Mrs. Cramer , her son ,
and the other relatives , after whom

The grave was enclosed in brick
and had been dag rlougslde the grave

agitated throughout the whole service.
The grava of the general's father Is
marked with n plain monument , on
which was Inscribed "J. R. Grant. "
The general scrutinized the inscrip
tion , and then looked Into the grave
while all that remained of his aged
mother was being covered with the
earth ,
After the benediction was pro
nounced , the ccflii waa hid from sight
by a large freestone ; the grave was
