YOUK , July 17. ( Special Telegram
to the BEI : . ! A dispatch from Atlanta to tlio
Trlbunn , jrlve.s tlio history and significance
of a measure now before the Georgia legisla
ture , the result of which may bo to send the
teachers of colored children to thn chain
gang. This bill provides that no school or
other educational Institution conducted for
the education of colored people shall receive
as a pupil any white person , and that no
school or educational Institution , conducted
for the education of white people , shall re
ceive" as a pupil any colored person. A viola
tion of.lt1) provisions Is made a misdemeanor ,
punishable by a line not to exceed 81,000 ,
imprisonment not to exceed six months or
work In the chain Rang not to exceed twelve
months , any or all In the discretion of the
court. The reason of the bill Is found In the
following facts : in IST/v the American Mis
sionary association founded tlio Atlanta uni
versity for the education of colored youth ,
obtaining all money needed to build and
maintain the Institution from the north , the
total sum since lbC7 bolnc over three hundred
and llfty thousand dollar ? . For several
1 years there have been a few white
pupils In this school. These wrru
the children of the professors , and In one In
stance the child of a mlssionniy < > t the Amer
ican Mission association. The presence of
these white children was duechlelly to the
fnct that there was no school In Atlanta
where tin' children could receive as thorough
training and discipline , and because the sen
timent of the people against "tiller teach
ers" was such that to send children to white
Bchool.s would liavo been to subject them to
ostracism and Insult When the republican
conaress granted school inmls to the several
states , Ocorida' received 3270,000 In scrip.
Which brings the state § 10,000 u year. This
was at llrst all given to the state university
at Athens , with nearly one-half of its state
population colored. It took the nation's gift
for the bonelit of the whole state , and put It
whore the colored people could have no
share In It whatever , Homebody dlscoveicd
that this was clearly a misappropriation ot
funds , and the state atoncn toolc great credit
to Itself by appropriating half of the sum for
the education of the colored people
ple and giving It to the At
lanta unlvcrsttv. although tlio money
Is tlio gift of the United States. It Is always
spoken of as a state appropriation. Now the
state suddenly opens Its eyes to the fact that
In this Institution , built and Bupnorted by the
noith and receiving only one-third of Its cur
rent expenses from the state of a national
plft for education , a few white children are
bclngcduratcd , and It Is to set the seal ot
condemnation on any such mixture of schol
ars that a measure worthy of the dark ages
has been introduced In the legislation.
LONDON. JuIylO.-Tho cabinet met again
to-day to discuss the amendments to the land
bill offered by the liberal unionists. The
election In Baslnstoko , division of Hamp
shire , to ( ill the vacancy caused by the eleva
tion to the peerage of G , Sckatter Booth , con
servative , was held to-day. Jeffreys , con
servative , was elected , securing 3,358 votes
against 2,420 for the liberal candidate. The
conservative vote shows a falling off of 600
and the liberal vote a gain of 100 compared
With the election of 1880.
The Marquis of Salisbury Informed the as
semblage that the differences between the lib-
eral-unlonlKts and the government regarding
the land bill had been satisfactorily adjusted ,
concessions having been made whleh re
moved the chief objections which had been
entertaliuul by Chamberlain and his friends.
The government' had also decided to
authorize the land commissioners to re
consider within a certain period the rents
of holdings proved to have been effected by
the fall In prices of produce and cattle. The
meeting favored the early prorogation of
parliament , expediting tlio passage of the
land bill and allotmtmts bill , and the devo
tion of the remainder of tlio session to the
consideration of the supply bill , so that ad
journment might take place not later than
thti third week in August.
Sir James Ferguson , parliamentary secre
tary of the foreign ollico , stated In the house
of commons this afternoon that the Question

Prince Ferdinand to the Bulgarian throne
would not arise until after the sultan had
sanctioned his election , and the sultan's
junction had not yet been given.
Concerning the Anglo-Turkish Egyptian
convention bir James said no negotiations
were proceeding , and It was unlikely that
the suspended negotiations would bo aoon
resumed , Sir Henry Drummond Wolff , Brit
ish special envoy , not having given Kng-
land's ratification , no withdrawal of tbo rati
fication could take placo.
The house ot commons went formally In a
body to the house of lords this afternoon ,
whore the royal assent wan givnu to the Irish
crimps act amendment bill , and It was thus
made the law of the realm.

U the time was not opportune for bringing

LONDON , July lt > . The speeches at the
Carleton club meeting to-day show much
friction between the government and the
unionists. A crisis was narrowly averted.
A racurrenco of the trouble Is probable , there.

too much to the unionists. The unionist
sub-committee held a meeting In the com

lying south of Kansas , has been received by
the president deprecating his failure to sign
the bill passed by both houses of congress

to the btato of Kansas. The petitioners repre
sent that for years past that country lias been
monopolized by largo and Influential cattle
companies , many of tnotn foreign corpora
tions , which have fenced elf for their own
purpose thousands of acres of valuable land ,
and whose every aim Is to keep out the honest
and hard working farmer. The petition
states that from twenty to thirty families are
daily entering the strip and locating and
building and breaking ground for crops.
Railroads are making surveys and some aie
about commencing to grade. Towns are
springing up , people are spending their
money in building , yet they cannot get title
to the pound they are building upon. Busi
ness Is Impeded because trade is unprotected.
The petitioners ask that their statements bo
Investigated and that such action be taken as
will best protect them In tnelr rights.

CAPTURE OF A MURDERESS.
Maggie Lovlitta Arrested in This City 'By
the Sheriff From Ohadron ,
ATTACKED WITH A KNIFE.
Two Italians Assault n Matt For Nip *
pins n Peanut Wanted For
Criminal Llbel-Thu City
Arrested For An Old Crime.
For n few weeks past Sheriff Monnoll ,
of Chmlron , Unwes county , has been in
In the city quietly on the scent of the
principals ot u murder committed in that
region over n year ago. As n trophy of
his visit ho took buck with him yester
day Matrgio Lovlitts , the nllcjrpil female
accomplice of the murderer Thompson.
Miss Lovlitts was employed ns a waiter
in a restaurant hero , nnd the nrrcst was
mndo so quietly that none were nwaro of
her reasons for quitting the plaoo.
Thompson luis been seen once in Council
Uluffs since Sheriff Monuell's arrival
here , but as nothing has been scon of him
since it is thought that lie has taken
alarm nnd is cither secreted oris lied
for safer quarters.
Tlio victim of the murder was formerly
n citizen of ( Jhiulron , who had moved
into the Niobrura valley in the southern
part of the same county. Hu lived alone
in n cabin for several months and it
was known that he had considerable
nioney. One day a neighbor happened
into his lonely cabin nnuwas shocked to
lind the dead body of the owner fostering
with decay. Tins'bullet holes in the body
and the disordered state of the cabin told
only too plainly of thn final desperate
struggle between the murderers and their
victim. The rummaged condition of the
place and the failure to lind any of the
murdered man's valuables gave a clew
to the mercenary motives that prompted
the murder. The crime created a great
deal of excitement m Duwes and the sur
rounding counties , and if the
murderers could have been cap
tured it was freely nilmittod that
Judge Lynch was the only suitable mag
istrate before whom such n heinous deed
should bo tried. About this time it was
noticed that Thompson and Miss Lovlitts ,
who had been on the most intimate
terms , had suddenly disappeared. Sus
picions were immediately fastened upon
thorn as the perpetrators of the crime.
Subsequent developments conlirmed
those suspicions , and the matter was
placed in the hands of the proper of
ficers. The officers have pushed the in
vestigation with the greatest caution and
vigilance , but hare been continually
foiled in all their attempts to dis
cover the whereabouts of the
guilty pair , until within the last
few weeks , when n clue was discovered
which by skillful handling : resulted in
the capture of Thompson's accomplice ,
Mi s Lovlitts , as above stated. The
crafty Thompson , however , has defied
the vigilance and craftiness of the ofli-
co.rs , and Sheriff Monncll has temporarily
arily returned to Uhmlron.
STABBED POIl A PEANUT.
An Italian Thrusts a Dagger Into
Yesterday afternoon as Jacob Uarr , an
expressman , was passing by tlio fruit
stand on the corner of Thirteenth and
Harnoy streets , ho plucked a peanut
from the stand and passed on. This on-
niged the proprietors , Louis Fnrlin and
Louis Roman , and armed with a hatchet
nnd dagger respectively , they started in
pursuit of Darr. Some words passed between -
tweon the three which resulted in Farlin
stabbing Uarr in the thigh. The patrol
wagon was sent for and both persons
were carried to the police station. Dr.
Ralph , the city physician , was sum
moned , and upon probing the wound
found it ranched clear to the bone , and
ma.v cause Uarr considerable trouble be
fore it is healed. The wound was prop
erly dressed and Uarr was taken to his
homo. Meanwhile Roman , Farlin's
partner , was notlticd by the police to
closa upJiis stand , and ho , too , was ar
rested and lodged with his murderous
partner in the city prison. The affair
created considerable excitement , and
among the largo crowd that gathered on
the scene went a number of Italians.
One of these began disputing with a
policeman concerning the assault , und
becoming defiant anil noisy , ho too , was
hurried off to join his fellow countrymen
behind the bars.
CRIMINAL LI DEL.
A Herald Man to llo Arrcatod on That
A warrant was issued yesterday after
noon for the arrest of J. G. King , of the
Herald , on a charge of criminal libel pre
ferred by Isaao Brown. King is sup
posed to bo the man who wrote the highly
sensational and poorly substantiated ar
ticle which appeared several mornings
ago and which accused Brown ot being
the head of an organized gang of thieves.
By an understanding the warrant
was hold until to-day wbon
King will appear with his bondsmen -
men and dispose of tlio preliminaries.
An effort was rnado last night by Wil
liam N. King , an advertising man on the
World , and the complainant to have the
warrant served on the grounds that
King was going to jump the city. As it
was Dclievcd to bo prompted from per
sonal fueling and the police felt assured
that King could bo found at any time ,
the paper was not served. It was bo-
liovcd to be prompted by a desire to have
King locked up over night. Several
other suits will doubtless follow Brown's
against the Herald , occasioned by the
lack of discrimination between news and
nonsense which caused the sensational

great Autumnal show seems to bo more

hibits in agriculture will bo of an ex
traordinary character , while the slock
departments will bo tilled ns they never

always paramount to all other features ,
will bo extremely attractive. There are
already fifty entries for the different
classes , embracing the best known horses
of the whole west. The entries in the
colt stakes , which are alwajs of the
most conspicuous interest to local horse
breeders , far exceed those of any former
years ; m fact , more than double
them. It should not bo forgotten ,
cither , that during the same week
of the fair the soldieri and
sailors of Nebraska , will hold their an
nual reunion here , which will go far to
ward enhancing the ploasureablo excite
ment of the occasion. The soldiers and
sailors will hold their gathering on beau

THE CAUtPENTERS IN COUNCIL.
They AcldroM a Manifesto , to the
July 10,1837. To the carpenter con
tractors of the city of Omaha , gentlemen :
At a mooting called by the journeymen
carpenters for the purpose of adjusting
hours of labor and wages between jour
neymen and contracting carpenters , you
entered into an engrccmcnt with the
journeymen carpenters of this city on
the lath day of Juno , 1837 , to the effect
that nine hours do constitute a day's
work for live days and eight hours con
stitute a day's work on Saturday with the
same pay pur day , and additional pay
and a naif for all over time , anil that
thirty cents per hour bo paid to all com
petent carpenters and joiners.
The journeyman ou their part agreed
that the contractors should have the
right to pay men according to their
ability , provided they paid thirty cents
to competent carpenters. This agree
ment was signed by the following firms
In their own handwriting and is now in
our possession : John \V. Uwin , T. 11.
Smith , William Emerson , J. II. Tyrrell ,
J. A. Hazell , James Grilllth , Hamilton &
Woolley , Simmons , HOOVPS & Company ,

berry , A. Meyer , James Hayncs , Goo. C.
Allen , Laty & Benson , Peter Sperling ,
J. Wccda. M. T. Murphy , B. Jobst , Fin-
Inyson AB Nobles , Chas. A. Nelson. Every
contractor spoken to by the committee
of journeymen , who had not signed ,
agreed to the system except T. 11. Bray-
ton and Councilman Consman who em
ploy eight or ten men each und are going
to discontinue tlio business. With a viuw
of making your agreement universal you
called a mooting of contractors on the
15th day of July and permitted several
incompetent and irresponsible parties to
introduce resolutions to alter your docu
ment in such manner as to change its
meaning in every particular. Gentlemen
you have allowed yourselves to drift
into disreputable company und arc
being misled by soyeral by
mistutcments on the part of members of
your fraternity with whom wo will have
nothing to do under any circumstance.
Moreover you ignored the committee
sent by the journeymen carpenters to
adjust differences , sliould their bo any.
The following are the resolutions you
published over your signature :
Whereas , Wo , the master carpenters , hav-
ine ascertained by a committee appointed
for that purpose , that a majority of master
carpenters still work theirmen ten hours , but
Kesolved , That wo consider said agree
ment null and void and adopt the following
.Resolved , By the undersigned , that nine
hours be considered a day's work tor all
working days of the week at a uniform rate
of thirty cents per hour for fust-class car-
pentcis and no distinction be made between
union ana non-union men , master carpen
ters icservine the riu'lit to grade their men
according to their ability. Men will be paid
for the number of hours they work and no
It is further understood by the master
carpenters that any journeyman carpen
ter leaving his present employer because
of this resolution will not be employed
by any of the undersigned master car
penters , but said journeyman must re
turn to his former employer.
Now , you say that your committee
( which consisted of only one active mem
ber. J. C. Gladden ) , ascertained that a
majority of master carpenters still con
tinue to work their men ton hours. This
statement ia false und was the first step
by which you were misled.
Another thing , the journeyman do not
consider a large portion of the self-styled
master carpenters compontent and re
liable contractors. For instance , J. C.
Glmldon your secretary who has liens
tiled in the clerk's oflico of the county
court house against work done by him
last season und the year previous on
eleven jobs to the amount of $8,009.83 ,
and who it appears does not have many
friends among the journeymen car
penters , nor docs he stand in good repute
among the contractors , except when he
is ongairod in such devilish work as draft-
injr.resolutions such as appeared in the
daily papers last week. It is a pity that
the contractors who assembled in that hall
could not or did not elect a secretary
and committeimian with a better record
ns a mechanic and contractor than J. C.
A representative of another class of so-
called master carpenters is T. B. Brayton
who has taken work m Contyes1 addition
tor $4,000 which was estimated by relia
ble contractors to cost .fO.OOO und over.
This is by far the largest class in opposi
tion to any thing which will bo the least
bonelit to that labor , which is in fact , the
only capital of the master carpenter.
Further , the carpenters have reason to
believe that a number of proud , arrogant
and unscrupulous contractors are en
deavoring to create dissensions between
honorable and well meaning contractors
and the men in their employ.
To bo a master carpenter is one who
has learned the trade of carpenter ana
joiner , nnd who knows how to work at
the business himself. A contractor is
one who has the business ability to con
tract for work successfully.
It is a well known fact that with but
few exceptions all reliable and honorable
contractors have worked their men nine
hours a day and eight hours on Satur
day from the Oth day of July
Among these exceptions are J. F. Coots
nnd A. Rosenborry , nnd we have reason
to bolicvo that if it had not bcon for the
high-handed intermeddling of one Wied-
ner , knovvn as the bookkeeper at Rosen-
berry's mill , many of these dissensions
would not have occurred. You say also
that SO cents per hour will bo paid to first-
class carpenters. You agreed to pay 30
cents to competent men. First-class is a
higher grade than the ordinary compe
tent carpenter. It appears that you in
tend to go back on your word to that ex
tent. Vt hile it is customary for you to es
timate the value of a building , you also
by custom assume the right to place a
value on the journeyman carpenter who
performs the labor on that building , nnd
just in proportion as you insist on these
rights the carpenter loses his individual
right to estimate the value of the labor
which ho performs , and though you may ,
and possibly have the right , by force of
circumstances , to consider your part of
that agreement null nnd void , is it just to
the men in your employ , who are en
deavoring to abide by their part ,
that you now adopt resolu
tions changing the whole or part
in such manner that it is meaningless
altogether ! You yourselves inserted the
tune and a half in the agreement to pro
tect the nine hour contractor , and now
you consider U null and void. For what
Did we over ask you to discriminate in
favor of our union except to recognize it
as a representative body of journeymen
carpcntorsT The last clause of your res-
o'.ution Is nn infamous threat of a black
list , an insult to the independent Amer
ican mechanic , gotten up in an arrogant
manner for the purpose of coercion , and
you , gentlemen , in your simplicity and
ignorance , have bcon Induced to appear
ns voucher for such sentiments. The
Journeymen carpenters mot you in a
spirit of concession and fairness , willing
to forego their just demands nnd forgot
the many abuses to which their trade has
long been subjected in order that the
building interests of the city might not
suffer , and this U the result. Many hon
orable contractors wore willing and are
now ready to abide by their agreement.
Among these are Hamilton & Woolley ,
James. Griffith , Joseph Hayncs , George
Wuddoll , Donald Nobles , Simons ,
Reeves & Co. , and nineteen others whoso
names wore not allowed to appear on
these last resolutions. There are many
others among you who have been cajoled
and browbeaten by disreputable and dis
honest man , who assume to call thorn-
solves nustor carpenters , into the adop
tion of what they please to call a nine- ' '
hour rule , which leaves it optional for
them to continue to rob the men In their
employ. Many contractors on last Sat
urday and Monday discharged a portion
of their men because they would not
promise to work nine hours on Saturday.
Many others refused to employ certain
journeymen because they hiuf loft their
former employer. Still others threat
ened their men with a general lockout.
Arc thcso honorable means to establish a
universal nine-hour rule ? To elevate the
journeyman carpenter ? And harmonl/o
the building interests of the city. Uo
you know that if you order a lookout you
will bo the only ones out of a job ?
Can you not form a carpenter contrac
tors' association which will bo an honor
to the craft , n bonelit to yourselves and a
protection to the building Interests of
the city without bulldo/.ing the labor by
which you have been able to gain a live
Are you not able to regulate matters
among yourselves to the end that fair
prices will be paid for good work ,
and the wood butcher carpenter will bo
Is it not possible for employer and em
ploye to work iu harmony without black
list or boycott ?
No\v , then , in view of the action you
that you have taken , bo it
Resolved , By the Journeymen carpenters
In special meeting assembled that wo nbldo
by and shall enforce the agioomont enteied
Into on Juno in , IhST.
That nine houis constitute a day's work
and eight hours on Saturday , for same pay

AXAMOSA , la. , July 10. [ "Correspond-
once of the HUE. ] John Green , proprie
tor of the stone quarries at Stone City ,
lour miles cast of hero , has a peculiar
case in court that will decide a point of
law now in doubt. Mr. Green's agent
in Now York City hired and sent to Stone
City Jive stone cutters , paying their rail
road faro , hotel bills and express charges
on their kit of tools , amounting In ail to
over $115. When the men arrived at
their destination they utterly refused to
go to work for Mr. Green , whereupon
the latter had them arrested for obtain
ing money under false pretenses , but
failed to hold them under that charge.
Ho has now taken a new tack and pro
poses to attach their tools and it is cre
ating a great deal of interest. The men
have a great many friends here and Mr.
Green has plenty of money.
Mrs. Mary Philueck , of Olin , this
county , is creating a general curiosity by
her astonishing cures by the faith sys
tem. She is a very unostentatious woman
of perhaps forty years of ago , and n
very pleasant conversationalist. This
woman has cured a lady in Anamosa who
for years had been unable to walk , owing
to nn ailment of the nnklo. Another
woman by the name of Paylos , who had
paralysis and was unable to even feed
herself , is almost .entirely well , and
these women are treated simply by the
lady in question taking them by the hand.

An assembly of the Knights of Labor
has recently been organized at this place

The crops in this county look line with
the exception of wheat , which is almost
n total failure , and many farmers have
cut it and used it lor fodder for their
stock , the chinch bugs being the causo.
Wheat will lirvo to bo imported for
home consumption. During the la. t five
days the thermometer has ranged from
100 ° to 112 ° in the shade , consequently
tbo crops need rain very badly , as the ex-
trcm , heat crisps up the leaves. If wo
have wet weather soon everything but
wheat will be a big yield.
