weather, however, does not prevent
them remembering when meal time is

If They Accomplish Their Object a
Oeneral Strike Will l>e Inaugurated.
A special from Columbus, O., of tlie
20th, says the National Executive Board
of the United Mine Workers adjourned
today, after having issued a call for a
conference of organized labor to be
held in St. Louis on August 30th. The
board rejected the proposition of the
Pittsburg operators for a conference to
arbitrate tlie wage dispute in that dis-
trict, claiming that such action would
be prejudicial to the interests of the
miners at larg*\ The board is ready t»>
consider overtures for the arbitration
of the issues of the great strike only
•when these overtures coaie from all
the operators in the competitive dis-
trict, which includes Ohio, Indiana,
Illinois, West Virginia and Pennsyl-
The success or failure of the strike
hangs upon the St. Louis conference,
the call for which has been endorsed
by Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, and J.
I>. Sovereign, general master workman
of the Knights of Labor. They main-
tain that the fight now being waged
by the miners is one of common inter-
est to organized labor throughout the
country. At the St. Louis conference
all labor organizations will bo asked to
join issues with the miners. The fail-
ure to secure a general suspension in
West Virginia has greatly interfered
with the 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 off
this supply appears to lio in the refusal
of organized labor in the ordinary
channels of traffic and business to han-
dle or use this coal. If the object of the
St. Louis conference is accomplished,
the strike will be extended to near-
ly every branch of labor in the coun-

Messrs. It. G. Dun Sc Co. 's Weekly
Review of Trade, for the week ending
August 31st, says, ia part: Not fjr 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 this week.
The markets are called crazy by some,
but fairly represent the people, whose
confidence in the future is strong aud
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 likely 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 loans
are much larger, including consider-
able iron and steel paper, aud the
course of foreign exchange i ; generally
interpreted as an indication that
special imports cannot be longer de-
The greatest gain has been agricul-
turally. Corn has advanced a little in
price, but is moving very largely, so
that the last year's surplus may sooti
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 some 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® cents
for the week on actual transactions,
with heavy purchases for export. The
official estimate of the yield is entirely
disregarded, except as an admission
that the crop will be larger than that ol
last year, and it is commonly assumed
that the yield will be 550,OOO,0t)O bush-
els, or more, though recent reports ol
injury, indicating the possibility ol
somewhat small outcome, have helped
the advance in prices. It is well to no-
tice that corn reports continue mort
than double last year's also, in three
weeks 8,51(5,544 bushels, agaiust 4,1 Kt,-
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 irs at
Cleveland, and also of billets at Pitts
burg, show .he utmost confidence ir
The old difficulty remains in the boo
and shoe industry, dealers being un
willing to buy largely at the prie«
which manufacturers now ask, though
during the past week the only changi
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 buyers are holding oft'in the belie
that prices have reached the top.
In the woolen business a constant in
crease appears in the number of estab
lishments at work, and the demand fo
goods has much increased.

The firing was mainly for the purpose
