11EB A HAIL IN TMIS C1TT.
They Visit Business Places en North
Queen Street and Attempt the Change
Racket Police After the Strangers.
The Lancaster papers of lest evening had
an account of tlie appearance lu Columbia
en Thursday evening of two swindlers, who
were working tlie change racket. They
ucceeded in getting mere money than
they were entitled te at two different
places, but Iho ttlck was discovered and
they were followed and made te disgorge.
Strange te say, the men were net arrested
tliore, but were allowed te take the evening
train for Lancaster.
Twe men, answering tlie description of
this pair or sharpers, made ttieii- appear
anne In Lancaster, and they tried te work
their game between 11 and 1 o'clock Friday.
They started In near the upper end of
North Queen street and ene of them
seemed te be working en each side of the
street. One first stepped at Little's grocery
store, at New and North Queen streets, and
purchased a blacking brush from a boy in
charge, for ten cents. The fellow produced
a f lOnete te pay for the brush, and about
.hattlmeMr. Little came into Iho stere.
The stranger said, " perlinps you can
change a $20 bill." .Mr. Little said he
could net, and te break a ?I0 bill It would
take murochange than hodeslrod te glve
out. The fellow Bald he would be
back latter and take the brush, but
he failed te put In an appearance.
The ether man stepped at Eckmau's
stere, at North Queen and Frcderlck
streets, and offered a $10 bill in payment
for cigars, but thoie was net sufficient
change In te break it. The man who was
at Little's went from tliore U the store of
Select Councilman D. K. Leng, at North
Queen and James streets, nud purchased
two flve cent cigars. He threw down a f 10
bill, and Mr. Leng gave him a Je geld
plece and the remainder in silver. The
fellow asked for a 85 nete. for the silver,
"but Mr. Leng suspected something nud
would net glve it. This stranger then went
te Jacob Gruel's confectionery, II. F. Web
er's grocery and the olllce of Alderinnu
Dellet. At each of lliose places he asked
for a nete for 55 worth of silver. It wus
net given te him, but he was told that the
Northern bank was opeu and he cenld get
it there. He did net go te the bank how hew how
evor. While this man was working the western
side of the street the ether was en the op ep op
pcslte slde. The latter stepped in Smeltz's
store, at the corner ofLemon street, and
purchased a box of baking powder; he
gave a $10 bill, but it was net changed.
Frem tliore he went te II. M. Ilyus' shoe
store, where he negotiated for a seven cent
button hook. He produced a ?20 bill, but
when Mr. Ilyus said he would have te go
te the bank for change the fellow disap
peared. A man named Keudig, whofellowod the
men down North Quceu street, and knew
what their gaine was, Informed 0111 cer
Burns and Constnble Nehr. By that tlme
the men hud gene down North Queen
street and gotten away. The man who
was in Leng's stere was heavily built,
and he would probably welgli about 185
pounds. He thou were a black Derby hat
and dark blue coat and pantaloons, but no
vest. In the afternoon at 3 o'clock a man
who looked like him was been going up
North Queen street in a street car. Alder
man Delict and Constable Nehr went out
te the upper Reading station ami found the
man who had been en the street car. lie
was talking te a countryman, but
was net .dressed like the man with
the big bills was in the morning,
as he had a vest en and wero alight
hat. Ah the nldcrnian was net positive
that this was the man he had seen he was
net arrested, and he left in tiie 4 o'clock
train. Bofero he went away he waH joined
by another who may have been the second
meney changer, and they loll together.
Beth men had satchels nud umbrellas and
The men who tried thochunge game had
plenty of glO and ?20 bills in their vesi
pockets. The nete glven te Mr. Leng was
taken te the bank, as there was mjiuo'sus mjiue'sus mjiuo'sus
plclen about it and it was pronounced
genuine. Tliore is HRle or no doubt that
they are the same fellows who were in

Contractor Schwoers te Finish Ills Werk
The lewer end of Seuth Queen street has
been in an almost Impassible condition for
sonie weeks by reason of the oxtenslen of
the electric street car line and the laying of
a water main. After the street was dug
up by the street car men aud the ties laid,
nothing further could be done en account
ofthenon arrival of rails. An ofllcer of
tlie street carcempany was seen te-day and
he says the rails were premised and should
have been hore. When asked when they
were erdered he said en the 3d of July and
premised en the 7th. As preparation was
made soveral weeks age for the oxtenslon
of this street car line, the orderlng of rails
The street car officers say the city is
responsible for the Impassibility of the
street aud they have done alt they could te
avoid complaint. When their attention
was called te the accumulation of dirt they
had it put te ene side of the street, se as te
allow teams te pass. The bad condition of
the st root Is said te be the fault of Herman
Schwoers, the contractor for the trench for
the new water main from its terminus en
Seuth Queen street.
Before going far with his work he struck
rock and from that tlme his progress has
been very slew. Numerous complaints
were made te the mayor about the
blocking of this street and en Friday the
water committee went down te take a leek
at it. Thecomirilttee Instructed the con
tractor te'push the work mero rapidly and
he said he would net get the hands. The
mayor suggested that the commlltee socure

of ten cars and the read lu running

the cause of delay and the answer reeeived
is that their men are working night and

tee many contracts and de net have the
facilities fur turning out the amount of
work contracted for. Lancaster Is net the
only city complaining. Information re

The Delivery or Mall.
Pestmaster Oriest's Iwiuircr has an odi edi odi
terial urging the better direction of loiters.
A great deal of delay in the dollvery of

cerned is occasioned by the errors,' care
lessness or wilful neglect of peeple in di
recting Jetters. " The Incomplctciiess of
direction is olten a fortile seurce of delay
aud olten of failure te reach the destination
at all. This is especially trne of free do de
lively ofnees. Seme persons have u habit
of mailing letters directed te a porseu, ad
ding simply " city." This may answer if
the individual addressed is a well known
rcsident, but It is much botter te add tlie
street and number, the formeralono if the
latter is net known. It is net an uncom
mon thing for letters te be properly di
rected except that at the last they are sent
te the wrong state. At the postefllco in
this city letters are almost dally rocelved
directed te Lancastcr,Fa.; intended for Lan
caseor, Ohie, Lancaster, Kentucky, Lancas

Product ofThlsSliiRle Field.
Cornwall Cerr. of Pittsburg Dispatch.
Situated llke a great barrier be
tween two fertile, valleys, which are new
covered with Immense fields of tbe finest
grain, Mid at the base of ene of the branch
ranges of the Seuth Mountain, which
forms the dividing line bolween Lobauen
and Lancaster comities, are a group of thrce
hills. The Cornwall ero hill, tlie general
outline or which does net Impress the
travoler as being of any especial intorest
when seen at a distance, but as they are
approached the peculiar rusty color of tbe
surface, tlie few plue trees scattered here
aud there ever thorn, and tbe noticeablo
absence of ether vegetatlnn, attract at
tention. But it is only when clese te thorn
that the gray color of the rock is seen, and
tills glves ene the Impression that soma
valuable deposit is contained lu these hills.
The three hills are known as Big Hill,
Middle Hill and Grassy or. West Hill, in
erder from cast te west. The Big Hill,
which Is tlie largest of the three, has an
elevation of botween -300 and 400 feet, and
covers about 50 ueres. The Middle and
Grassy Hills are hardly mero than 100 feet
high. This range of hills Is composed of
solid ero, and forms a deMslt which Is net
approached In richness or extent by any
known iron or ero deposit In this country,
unlrtBK it be the Lake Superior mines. The
varlety of Iren ero which predominates is
that known among geologists as "mag
netic," but in souie portions of Iho moun
tains large beds of iron pytltes are leuud,
which makes the ero dillfeult te smelt mi mi
less it has previously been "reasted" and
most of the sulphur removed. In the
Middle Hill a line quality el copper ero is
found iu veins, sonie of which are mero
than tluoe feet iu thickness. "Traces of
ether mlnerals are occasionally found, und
Dana in his manual mentions as many as
20 varieties of rocks aud minerals which
have been met with he re.
The hills are all terraced aud mining
operations are carried en along these ter
races. The Big Hill Is surrounded by a
spiral railway which Is connected by
branch lines "with .each terrace from the
base te the summit or, the mountain.
The cars are drawn up the hill by it loeo leeo loee
motivo, run into the mines and leaded, and
then started down the mountain te the
stock yard, whero each caf passes evor the
scales, and an accurate account of every
ten of ero that leaves the hill is kept.
The amount of ero which leaves the
hills annually is something enormous, In
conversation with your correspondent
Weighmaster Schools, of the Cornwall
railroad, said : " I cannot glve you the ox ex
act figures from memory, but 1 knew that
mero than 35,000 tens of this ero is trans
ported evor our read every mouth and I
am positlve that lust as much is carried
from these hills by the Cornwall Jfc
Lebanon railroad. During my 'stay with
this company I have weighed between six
and seven million tens of ero taken from
the Cornwall hills." Ne less than 12 fur
naces are supplied with cre from this place
It Is true that most of thein are owned and
operated by the difierent branches of the
Celeman family, but at least thrce ether
furnaces, the Pennsylvania Steel company,
atSleelten; the Duueannen Iren company
and McCormick furnace, recolve a big
amount of ero from Cornwall.
As early as the middle of the last century
the Penn brothers made a grant of land te
ene Petor Grubb. Tlie tract of land In
cludes what Is new valuable farm land In
Lebanon and Lancaster counties, and that
portion of the Seuth mountain known as
, the Cornwall ero hills. By various sales
and Inheritances the major estate has
Cassed into the possession of the various
ranches or tlie Celeman family, although
about one-sixth of it Is still owned by de
scendants of the original ewner. The G.
Dawsen Colonial! heirs of North Lebanon,
and Mr. William Freeman, of Cornwall,
are the principal owners.
When this grant of lipid was made the
mining Interests of the country amounted
(practically) te nothing, but as the years
rulled en "and Revolutionary times ap
proached, tlie deposit of ern becanie of
greater value, and was drawn en largely
te supply Iren for us in tlie war. It was
thou that the old charcoal furnace was
built and mining begun iu earnest.
A rusty single track of railroad leads te
this "Old Charcoal" furnace which, for
almost 100 years furnished the trade, but
which of late years has bcen suporsedod by
furnaces of larger proportions aud cap'ibfe
of greater output. Te-day se veral old can
non are found In the furnace which had
been prepared for usu iu the war.
Twe competing lines of railroad carry
the ero te its destination. Originally only
one single track Hue was used te bring the
ero te Lebanon. This was the old Neith
Lebanon railroad, or. as it is new called,
the Cornwall railroad, which transfers its
cars te the Reading read at Lebanon, but
us business iucreased and transportation
contracts were desired and net given, u
new company wus formed, with Mr.
Rebert II. Celeman, of Cornwall, at its
head and the result is the beautiful Coin
wall A-. Lebanon railroad with its finely
equipped cars and lucoiuetUes and every
known appllance for safety iu railway
travel. The Cornwall .t Lebanon rail
road hus an outlet e or the Pennsylvania
lines at Conewago, and en this line we pass
Mount Gietna, the beautiful picnic park
and encaiiipment ground for state and
Tlie Cornwall ero mines have been in
ojieration since a period bofero Revolution
ary times, but it is only during the past
M) years that they have been working en a
large scale. They ure operated by tlie Corn
wall Ore Bank company, of which Mr. J.
Ta ler Boyd is tlie general manager.
At Cornwall there are two ether fur fur
naces the Aiitlir.u-ite furnace, owned by
Rebert II. Celeman, aud the Bird Coleiuau
furnaces, owned by the Freeman branch
of the Celeman family. The latter furnace
has two stacks, and has a capacity of -!,000
tens per wcek. The Neith Cornwall lur
naces, which were recently remodeled, are
ewned bv Mr. W. C. Froeniau, who also
owns the Douaghmero furnaces at
Lebanon. In ISSO Mr. Rebert II. Celeman
began building the Colebrook furnaces at
Louauen, which te-day are two of the
(finest furnaces lu this country, but, un
fortunately, during the past year soveral
fatal accidents occurred by tlie breaking
out of the molten metal.
The Robeseniu furnace, owned by
Messrs. Borie A White, of Philadelphia,
has a perpetual ri,;lit te get Cornwall iron
ero for one stack and during the past few
years have erccted an immeiise stack with
a capacity of 00 tens per week. All these
furnaces are supplied with iron ero from
the Cornwall hills.
Three hundred men find steady employ
ment at thn ero mines and roceivo en an
average $1.05 tier day. It is tiue that
qulte a number of these men are Hun
garians, but a large number of Americans
are also at work iu these mines.

One of the most torrlble disasters which
has ever occurred In Neva Scotia happened
In Dartmouth Friday night. At least ene
hundred people are belleved te have per

the total number may be even greater.
The exact less of life will net be knew u for

The populace Hocked te the vicinity, burst
open the gates leading te the wharf and
rushed down te Inspect the new beat.
There wero hundreds en the deck, while
about a hundred mere steed en a
bridge supported by two chains, used
sometimes te take teams from ftrry beats.
In erder te make the bridge perfectly safe
and passable It was necessary that the end
protruding from tlie wharf should rest en
the vessel's deck.
The forward part of the Annex was a
few feet from the odge of the bridge, and
many persons, all men, of course, leaped
aboard the beat, but as they did se the
crowd lu the rear pressed forward, with
the result that at nine o'clock the chains
supporting the bridge gave way under
the weight It bere and fully ene hundred
people, includiiui women .and children,
were precipitated Inte the water.
The cries of the unfertunate pas
sengers as they battled for life lu the river
were heartrending and soemod te paralyze
Ne ene insde a tuove te save tbem for

The battle for II lb continued for about a
quarter of an hour, when quiet wasro wasre wasro
Riimed and tlie waters assumed their usual
placid appoarance. Gangs of men In row

a woman named Sllver, and her child,
another woman named Synott, and two

The news of the accident spread like
wildfire, and within half an hour a great
crowd besieged the deck and the olllce of
the ferry company inquiring anxiously for
missing relatives and friends.

MR. LEA TALKS PLAINLY.
HE CALLS UPON REPUBLICANS OP TIIE STATE
TO VINblCATB THEflJELm
The Domination or Quay Mieuld Net Be
Verinltted Detamnter's Failure te
Answer Twe Herleils Charges.
Henry Charles leu, of Philadelphia, has
Riven a decided nud emphatic answer te
ie ridiculous stories that he had decided
In abandon his position as n thorough anti
Quay Independent Republican In the fol
Te ihe Republicans of Pennsylvania!
It Is net often that any political organiza
tion has such an opportunity of redeeming
Itself from a corrupt domination as that
which Is effered te us In the Nevember
election. Fight years age, in iSS'i, the
thoughtful members of the Republican
party rese agalustthe besslsm of tbe Cam Cam
eeon clique and taught it a whole
some lessen, which should have served
te purify our politics for n de
cade. Unfortunately, the fruits of that
struggle wero thrown away by the sttiduo sttidue
less which allowed Mr. Quay, lu 1881, te
obtain a " vindicatien'' by successfully
competing for the olllce of state treasurer
In spite orthe rumors which connected his
name'Wlth'liilsapproprlatlen of the public
funds. It was then predicted that his next
step would be te secure the coming sena
torial vacancy nud te supplant Mr.Camoren
as the Republican boss of Pennsylvania.
Theso predictions have been, unfortu
nately, verified, and the results are seen
lu the degradation of our iKilltleul osl esl osl
tlen, which renders our ttate an object of
pity and contempt throughout the Union.
The besslsm of the Camcrens had in it
sonie elements of inanlluess; that of Mr.
Quay Is suuk te the lowest lovel of " prac
tical politics," bused as It is solely en the
adroit manipulation of jmlreuagu Inspired
by the meanest solfishness. It ropresents
net one single Idea of Republican states
manshlp and public policy, but only t'.ie
determination te rule or ruin. The selfish
ambition of the boss and his henchmen Is
Us sole guiding principal, aud Its methods,
as exhibited in Cambria county, are theso
of tbsnoak-thlef and feet-pad when tlie
distribution of the spoils falls te ell'ect Its
As lu 1881 Mr. Quay again cemes bofero
you for n " vindication." Then the accu
sations against hlin wero simply rumors,
the truth of which few had an opportunity
of Investigating. New these rumors have
assumed the shape of public charges,
strengthened by every detall of tlmeapd
Glace and circumstance, and te them have
eon ndded accusations of subsequent mal
feasances committed by him, of even
greater criminality, similarly weighted
with mero than abundant de tails. It is net
necessary te repeat te you tlie humiliating
story or a public life stained with every
variety of political immorality. That story
has beer scattered broadcast evor tlie
land by journals of the hlghest stand
ing, which have defiantly challenged
iiim te assert and defend his Inuoeetico by
suing them for libel. The courts are open
te him, and exemplary damages as well as
acquittal bofero his countrymen would re
ward him If he could successfully race a
Jury and uudorge u cress-examination; but
for mere than five months he has endured
these accusations lu stolid silence, without
taking a step te redoem his character. The
lnovitable result is that he Is regarded as
acquiescing In tlie charges and as virtually
con Tessing his guilt, aud the country at
large Is looking te sce whother the ence
proud state of Pennsylvania has sunk te se
low n pitch or degradation as contentedly
te endure the domination of such a man.
Mr. Quay, who se carnlully avoids,
courts and Juries, has seemed te iningine
that If the Republicans of Pennsylvania
could bocezoncd into indorsing at tlie polls
his candidate it would serve him as a polit
ical vindication. With edifying consistency
uiuster and man are equally In need of
vindication, for Candidate Delamater lias
been recently publicly accused by Senater
lCmery of bribery te pioeure IiIh olectlou
te the statu Senate, and of perjury te
secure the seat thus gained. His accu
ser has challenged hlui te u suit
ler slander, and he bus shrunk from
the courts and Juries llke his boss.
He also prefers tlie apparently safer course
of an indirect vindication at your hands,
and asks you te humiliate yotirselvcs by
olectlng te the highest olllce lu tlie statu a
smirched candidate whose nomination has
been forced upon you by a smirched boss.
It is a high prlce that they expect you te
pnv for the vindication of two such Indi
viduals, and the Impudence of such a dn
ninnd unen veur MiirruHiectuiii only be
explained by u kind of political training
which lias se completely eliminated ilghl ilghl ilghl
oeusiioss from public affairs thnl its veiy
oxistencu has been forgotten.
Fellow-Republicans, a vindication truly
is uocded at the coming olectlou, but It Is
net thn vindication of tainted politicians
who (lare net vindicate uieinseivc. -en
are called iim te vindicate your own
manhood, te vindicate the honesty of your
own parly, te vindicate the honor of your
own state. Yeu are called uien te show
that you de net wear the cellar of Mr.
Quayj that your vetes are net te be bought
and sold by the manipulation of patronage,
and that you are net te be driven te the
polls like cattie te make geed tlie bar
gains of your bosses. Yeu are culled
upon te teach u losseu te your self
constituted masters, and te show. the coun ceun
tiynl large that the grand old party may
still be trusted te manage the aflalrs of the
nation. If Pennsylvania, the stronghold
of Republicanism, Iho typical Republican
state, lamely acqulosces lu the debauched
domination of Quayisiii, and proclaims
that Messrs. Quay and Dulaiiiulur are its
trusted and honored leader, what chance
think you, will the Republican party have
when it asks tlie support of the sober sec
ond thought of the country lu IkVll Re
bellion against usurped domination of such
leadors is tlie truest fidelity te party and
the hlghest duty of patriotism.
Fortunately, the canvass Is one which
can 1)0 made te turn exclusively en local
issues. On ail general questions you can
glve practical expression te your couvi'j ceuvi'j couvi'j
liens by voting for the congressional and
legislative candidates who represent them,
and you cm thus emphasize the rebuke
which you iidinlulster te tlie methods and
morals of Quay ism. In ox-Governer I'at I'at

shows that the interests of the state will be

he earned tlie hostility of the giant corpor
ations If tlie Influence ofthe Pennsylvania
railroad and of the standard Oil company
Is understood te be ceunted upon by Mr.
Delamater It Is only anotliercliilinenyour
