The Trenton Sun ABTHY]R OEHLER, Editor. fBNTON, ILLINOIS, IT was an old Roman custom that a brine must prepare at least a part of the wedding feast with her own hands. Fortuuately the custom is no longer observed. SERVIA'S young king seems to be carrying things with a high hand just at present. As he is only sev- enteen he will no doubt gain wisdom as he grows older, however. THAT Chicago young woman who married a convict in the Joliet prisou recently will at least have the satisfaction of knowing exactly where her husband is every night. A BALTIMORE man has invented a double-decked hearse which car- ries both casket and mourners. From an economical standpoint he has completed a great undertaking. THE czar of Russia must note with interest that the material of which the new bullet proof coat is made, is just aboul the right weight to make a good summer suit for his latitude. A DrVOUT Boston woman who was recently sick unto death was revive- by a street band playing "Tara-r." Had the music been that of W:,ner the lady would have died h::ppy, no doubt. FROM the number of dynamite plots that are being discovered in St. Petersburg these days it is believed that a Chicngo detective must be spending h' vacation in the Russian capital. TIIERE is a man employed to im- pc,.sonate the czar when the latter noes not care toenhibit himself. The position probably pays well, but during the height of the bomb season that man would be a poor insurance risk. A 1)ESPONDZNT citizen endeavoring to leave this world of woe shot his suspender buckle, fracturing it quite eriously. The event is much de- plored. Next time he can save valu- able property by removing his sus- penders. A FLAV has been discovered in the nice new law designed for the dis- eouragement of poaching in Behring sea. It is not probable, however, that the law will be broken with any greater ease by the poachers than if the weak spot had not been found. IF one touch of earthquake has the 7ame effect as one touch of nature the Greeks and Venezuelans ought to be kin, for on the same day when chasms miles lon were rent in the' earth near Atlanta in Greece, the town of Los Guillos in Venezuela was swallowed up. SIx stray curs rubbed against a lamp post in Chicago and died forth- with, The post had become charged with electricity from an adjacent and particularly intelligent trolley wire. The item is probably being circulated to creole sentiment in favor of a transit system not wholly popular just now. A FRESCn.IAN named Turpin has excited the wrath of the French gov- ernment by sellin the secret of some terribie exulosive]to the triple alli- ance. It would seem that the French ought to have been deeply grateful to him for not adding an- ether to the list of explosives al- ready in use at home. ']HE Baptists of this country are to raise a million dollars this year for the cause of foreign missions. and have resolved to elevate the educational standard of their mis- sionaries. Experience has demon- strated that the best results are attained by sending thoroughly edu- cated men and women into the mis- sion field, and none but such are hereafter to be seut to minister to heen married to the vice president of Salvador, has changed her mind. Love in a mansion that is likely at any moment to be over an exploding borne is not without drawbacks. The vice president of Salvador may hold his job a week and at the end of that time be backed against a stone wall and shot beyond the reach ,of worldly honors, Altogether the head of the lew York girl appears to be level GREATER NEW YORK, a topograph- teal statistician points out, will cover an area of 3i7 square miles; three times the size of London and twelve times that of Paris. Rome, Babylon and Memphis are not to be mentioned in the comparison, and the only real competitor, contempo- raneous or hitoric will be Chicago, which spreads its municipal outlines as far out, on the prairie as itchoose and is not going to be left behind in ay race for bigness. A NEW YOK man who may or may not be a crank talks of building a hotel in the ocean. About ten miles from land he thinks would be the vroper distance, and he has asks4 the attorney general of New York state whether he could claim police protection in case he builds his tvern on the water. That any one should care t: live in a floating EPITOME OF THE WEEK. BRIEF NEWS SUMMARY FOR BUSY MEN, {tlMmd Telegraphic Reports Of te INa'tltRt Events of the ]Past Week All Over the World.

The Seventh Regiment of Chicago Sent to Mount Olive, lli.--Miner to Re- sume June 20--DissatlsfaeMon with the New $cal CHICAGO, June 19.--Gee. Altgeld last night ordered out the Seventh regi- ment (the Hibernian rifles) to assist the United States marshal Between 400 and 500 men started at 4a m. It is 240 miles to Mount Olive and the special, having the right of way, made it in six hours SPmNGFmLV, IlL, June l.--There is no rioting at Mount Olive, so far as Gee. Orendorff is informed, and the call for troops is due entirely to the fact that United Marshal Briton was unable to make arrests of men who were interfering with the trains The trouble at Mount Olive began last Wednesday, when the striking miners, irritated by the fact that coal was being hauled on the Louisville, Evansville and the Jack- sonville Southern railroad, began to interfere with the movement of trains, Their method was in some cases to break open the seals crf cars and examine the contents and if any coal was found inside it was dumped out. As the property was in the custody of the court Judge Allen ordered United States Marshal Brinton to the scene with deputies and in- structed him to arrest any who were found interfering with the oper- ation of the property or in any way trespassing upon it. Marshal Brinton upon his arrival made the miners a speech and a meeting was held by the latter, at which it was de- cided not to interfere. o sooner had the marshal returned, however, than the tactics of the miners were re- sumed and he went again to Mount Olive Saturday, armed with warrants for a number who were known to be guilty of contempt of court in interfering with the running of train Be found about 600 con- gregated Every attempt to make arrests was effectually blocked by the miners crowding between the few deluties and the men they were after. The marshal had only telve depu- ties, and it was hopeless for him to try to carry out the in,.tructions of the court. It was this condition of things that induced the request for military assistance. ILLINOIS MINERS TO FIUMI Decision of Conference at Springfield to Be Ratliied by the Operators. SI'IINGFIEI.D. Ill..

ALTOONA, Pa., June 19.--All the operators here received notice to at- Vend a conference to be held in Phila- delphia to-day.

The miners held a meeting at South Fork yesterday afternoon and decides to return Monday or Tuesday. Miners at Rrazl]L, Ind,, Want Work B]ZIL, Ind., June ] 9 --The decision of the miners in conference at Terre Haute Saturday has created much dis- satisfaction among the strikers in this city. When the report was received by a crowd of miners who had con- gregated around the telegraph office they bitterly censured the action of the meeting, and vowed they would return to work if they had to carry shot guns to defend themselves with. A miners' meeting will be held here this week by the block coal miners to decide whether to return to work in a body or not At Harmony, Knights- ville, Centerpoint and this city at meetings held Friday the strikers voted to return to work, while at Car- donia. Carbon. Coxville and Casevville the majority voted to continue the strike. Excitement is great here and serious trouble is anticipated in case part of the men return to work re- gardless of the decision rendered at Terre IIaute. The operators are silent and as yet have not agreed to pay the Columbus scale. Ohlo Troops Not Yet CIled In. COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 19.--Adjt.- Gen. Howe, who has been in command of the militia in eastern Ohio, held a eonsultaio last evening with Guy. McKinley, relative to the withdrawal of the troops. He had been in con- sultation with the colonels in com- mand, and also consulted the sheriffs of the several counties where trouble has occurred. The result of the con- ference was that the military now in the field in Tuscarawas, Stark, and Cornell counties will remain, there being a regiment in each county with batteries and gatling guns, The gov- ernor and attorney-general believe, from the present outlook, there will be no occasion for keeping the troops in the field later than Tuesday. r, IassilIon Miner in A,Ery Mood. MASSILLON, Ohio, June 19. The date set by President John McBride for the general resumption of mining will ind the men in his home district still on strike, contending against the Columbus settlement, and fighting a local differential issue that has been pending since Feb. tO. There is no indicatmn that the 2,000 Massillon miners are in a mood to abate their claims in any respect. Cameron Mil- ler of the United Mine Workers' execu- tive board arrived home last night too late to influence the Massillon district convention. He says the strike is vir- tually over. and that the men are rapidly falling into line. He has been devoting himself to the Western Penn- sylvania field, where he expects 15,000 out of' total of 20,000 men to begin work to-day.
