The labor question, which has agitated the public mind for some time past, has at last fallen into tbe hands of the lawyers, and it is now a prominent subject with the legal orators on public occasions. This is not surprising, for it is a disturbing element in politics, and whatever affects politics is of vital importance to the limbs of the law. Lawyers are quite an ingenious class of men; and of all people in the world they can better adapt themselves to the discussion of all questions, as well as the filling of all offices. It was thought a few years ago by...

THE TRUTH. Friday Evening, June 24, 1887. GLOVE FIGHT AT BOSTON. Denny Kellelier and Pete McCoy Box a Draw of Eight Rounds. Boston, June 21.—A rattling eightround glove-fight took place to-night between Pete McCoy, of Bridgeport, and Denny Kellelier, of Philadelphia. The fight was for $500. The men entered the ring about 9 o'clock, McCoy seconded by George La Blanche, "the marine," and Godfrey, and Kelleher by his younger and Dan Gill. James Colville acted as rgfQF66 In the first round the fighting was light and very even, each apparently feeling the other. In the second round Kelleher assumed the offensive, and catching McCoy on the point of the chin scored a clean knockdown. McCoy lay like a log, but the call of time saved a knockout. For the third round McCoy came up slightly groggy; the fighting was hot and heavy in this round and also in the next two, but neither had the best of it, McCoy growing better as the fight proceeded. In the sixth , round Kelleher again caught McCoy ti...

PEOPLE'S COLUMN. [This column is thrown open to the public for brief correspondence. The management is in no wise responsible for what appears in it.] Editor Truth For a long time I have noticed the condition of First street, and it is surprising that the people don't pay attention to it. From Byrd street to Canal street is horrible; the street is very narrow at this point, the sidewalks are torn all to pieces, and there is no light between these streets, which makes it very disagreeable for the people who live on Oregon Hill, as this is the principal street leading to the hill. Then the Byrd-street crossing is very bad ; it would take very little to put this street in tlrstclass conditton, and it is due the good people of Oregon Hill to remedy this at once. Doct.

South for the standard-bearer of the party in the next Presidential election. It is thought that his refusal to recognize the color-line and his disposition to give the colored people a fair share of the Federal patronage will be the means of his secur? ing a large colored vote in the South. Mr. Cleveland was very persistent in his efforts to put a colored man in the office of Recorder of Deeds for the District of Columbia, and positively refused to be influenced by the wishes of the people of Washin...

THE TRUTH. Monday Evening, June 27, 1887. "What Will the Harvest Be ?" [National Republican.) The June report of the Agricultural Department on the condition of the crop shows that most of the principal productions of the country promise well. While there has been a small falling off In the number" of acres of winter wheat, the acreage of spring wheat has increased largely, as has that of barley, oats, and cotton. . , .. The condition of all the crops is above the average, and so far as the cereals, except corn, are concerned the season is so far advanced as to make it almost a certainty that the product of the year will be good. It Is too early yet to approximate the result as to corn and cotton. It may be fairly assumed that nature and .the farmers have (lone their part of the work and that at lea«t a full average crop will be produced in 1887. r l his is particularly true as to the cereal crops of the great northwest. In the territories, through which the Northern Pacitic and the...

Y., an auxiliary of the General Assembly of the Knights of Labor, lectured last night at Pythian Hall, under the auspices of District Assembly 41, of Baltimore. She said: "We have institutions for charitable purposes, with names almost as long as eternity. We have organizations for the prevention of cruelty to animals, but none for the prevention of cruelty to humanity. And the 7,000 women who make 'pants' in New York for 5 and 7 cents a pair, whose homes I have visited in the eleventh stories of houses, must work night, day, and Sunday to keep their bodies and souls together., I knew of a poor girl who was compelled to work In a Newark corset factory two weeks for nothing and four weeks at a pittance, which was stolen from her by a system of tines that left her five cents for wages at the end of six ...

The murderous attack yesterday upon A. L. Fuqua, chief of the Fire Department, was very unfortunate. The Truth has endeavored from the beginning of the investigation of the charges against certain firemen to allay public excitement and to defeat the efforts of a secret political organization to make a political issue of the matter. We could foresee the result of such an issue. We have strenuously opposed the admitting of counsel in these cases, not that we were opposed to the admitting of counsel upon general principles, but because we recognized the fact that ...

the truth. Tuesday Evening, June 28, 1887. Kissed Vs All Around. [American Magaslne.l Some little time ago a young lady who had been teaching a class of half-grown elrls in the Sunday-school of Dr. B. s church, Brooklyn, was called away from the city, rendering it necessary to fill her place. The superintendent, after looking over his available material for teachers, decided to request one of the young gentlemen of the congregation to take the class. It so happened that the young man upon whom fell the superintendent's choice was exceedingly bashful—so much so, in fact, that he insisted upon the superintendent's going and presenting him to the class. Accordingly the two gentlemen appeared on the little platform, and the superintendent began : " Young ladies, I wish to introduce to you Mr. C., who will in future be your teacher. I would like to have you tell him what your former teacher did, so that he can go right on in the same way." Immediately a demure miss of fourteen arose and ...

The most destructive fire ever known at Keysville, Charlotte-county, on the Richmond and Danville railroad, occurred there last night. The stores o! Atwell, Bailey, Priddy, and Asher and three small houses were consumed. Bailey's tobacco warehouse was also burned. The railroad depot, which is not far from the storehouses, was not burned. A Newport News special says : " The jail was burned last night. The fire, which began inside the jail, is supposed to have, been started by two colored prisoners, so that they might regain their liberty. One of the imprisoned men, named George Washington, was burned to death, and the other one received injuries of a fatal character." A Lynchburg correspondent says: There was a decrease in the tobacco sales last week of 521,900 pounds, but there was a marked increase in prices of $1 to $3 for the best grades.
