TWO 1JITOETAXT BOAED MEETINGS
At a meeting of the Finance Committee
yesterday, with V. A. Magee in the chair,
and Messrs. Morrow, McCandless and
Brown present by invitation. The invita
tion was issued by the Chairman for the
purpose of devising some means for dispos
ing of properties to be sold for taxes for
which there are no bidders.
It was explained that heretofore, when
such property is advertised and there are no
bidders, the city is compelled to bid the
property in, bnt the Sheriff cannot deliver
the deeds unless the city pay the costs, and
the latter cannot locally be done, so another
sale ensues, perhaps with a like result
In order to prevent this, Mr. Magee pro
posed that 520,000 be appropriated to pay
the costs of sheriff sales on property sold for
city taxes, and that the Controller buy
the property in and demand the deeds with
out paying the costs, and if it be refused, to
carry it to tbe "courts, and if the Supreme
Court refused, then to pay the costs out ot
the 20,000. There was 5100,000 worth of
property in the city's hands which might be
utilized, and if there were no bidders for the
city property, he thought it ceuld be con
verted iuto public parks or used for public
Controller Morrow thought the latter part
of Mr. Macee's proposition was all right but
objected to carrying the question of costs to
the Supreme Court,

Defendants in the Bract Boycott Case Called
Up in Tnln.
Before Master M. A. "Woodward, the
bearing in the Brace Bros.' case yesterday
elecited lively interest. Joseph S. Mur
doch, their driver, testified that he lost 15
customers out of 1,000 during the boycott.
C. H. Brace was recalled and said he
recognizd Messrs. Dicus and Dovey as
having followed his wagons.
The defendants were then called and asked
to give their full names and ocenpations.
John M. Kelly objected to being examined,
on the ground that the evident purpose was
to connect him with the boycotting by rea
son of his being an editor ot a labor paper,
and a member of the organizations inter
ested. The objection was overruled and
Mr. Kelly said he was proprietor, editor,
publisher, and everything but the printers'
devil, of the Commoner and Glass Worker.
Mr. Dovey was called, but his counsel ob
jected, for the reason that he was a de
fendant and that the facts might -be proved
by other witnesses. This was finally over
ruled, and Mr. Dovey said he was Master
"Workman of D. A. 3, but had resigned in
November, 1887. His attorney, Mr. Porter,
objected to several questions in regard to his
relations with the organization and was sus
tained. Mr. Jennings took np the remainder of
the session in trying to identify a letter to
Brace Bros., alleged to have come from
Felix Mair, making Brace Bros, the one
exception to the firms whose laundry work
they were to take a hand in delivering, and
especially indicating that all deliveries to
that firm would be obstructed. None could
or would identify the signature, however,
and the hearing was adjourned for a week.

"While the reputation of Pittsburg and
vicinity as a great manufacturing center is
widespread, there is a want of information
as to the multiform articles made. Even
Pittsburgers are at a loss when abroad to
specify beyond the primary staple articles.
"With the object of disseminating such
knowledge, Mr. Geo. H. Thurston will pub
lish in the early spring a "Cyclopedia of the
Workshops. Manufactures and Other Inter
ests ot 'Pittsburg and Vicinity." The title
indicates the character of the letter press of
the work and its scope. Such a publication
will be especially valuable to those whose
specialties are described and illustrated, and
to the manufacturing interests of the whole
county generally, as Mr. Thurston will
distribute at his own expense copies of the
work, handsomely bound and printed, not
only through the United States but alo to
the'ehief business centers of England, Ger
many, France, South America, Japan and
In the last 30 years Mr. Thurston has pub
lished four or five statistical and historical
works relative to Pittsburg and vicinity,
which have become authorities in all quart
ers where received. The proposed work will
handsomely supplement those as a standard
book of reference as to the thousand and one
articles produced in Allegheny connty.

BANK DF PITTSBURGH
At a meeting of the directors of the Bank of
Pittsburg, held at the banking- house on th-
13th day of December, A. D.1888.1t was re- "
solved unanimously that the following memo-
rial and circular notice to the stockholders of
this bank be adopted, and that the same be
printed and sent to the stockholders: and also
that the same be published in the newspapers
for the information of tbe public and of thow '
stockholders wbose residences are unknown.
JOHN HARPER; President
W. ROSEBURG, Cashier.
TO THE STOCKHOLDERS OF THE BANK
OF PITTSBURG. n
It is proper that the stockholders of this
bank should know tbat its charter will soon ex
pire, and understand its position in that event.
The bank was first chartered in the year .1814,
and after tbe renewal and extension of its
charter by sundry acts of Assembly, fini'ly
came under tbe provisions of the Act of As
sembly of tbe 16th of April, 1850. and its sup
plements, under which it was chartered and re
chartered. By the act of the 19th of March, 1861), its char- '
ter was extended for the term of 20 years from
the expiration of its then existing charter. As
a consennence.'if its present charter be not re
newed. ft must expire, and its affairs be wound
np by five trustees to be elected by the stock
holders at a general meeting called for the".,
purpose. In case of a failure to provide trus
tees, its assets would necessarily be taken into -custody,
under an order of a court of equity, to .
be collected and disbursed for the benefit of
creditors and stockholders.
Tbe effect of an expiration of the charter win
be to convert tbe claims of the stockholder Into
a pecuniary demand upon the fund for tbo
stock of each stockholder and its incre
ment. As more than one-half of the stock is
held by executors, trustees and persons in s
fiduciary capacity, and by females, a reorgan- '
ization under a new and original charter cannot
be effected, because trust f unds cannot be in
vested without the authority of the-proper
tribunal, a thing involving a practical Impos
sibility. It Is obvious, therefore, that without a re
newal and extension of the present charter, the
"old" Bank of Pittsburg, so long known and -
esteemed as a rock of security, and the helper
and supporter of tbe men of business, and even,
of other banks, will come to an end, and its
large cnpital and assets taken out of
the business of Pittsburg and ad
jacent territory into private bands,
many in distant place9. The loss to the wbola
community, and the effect of the collection of
its assets and withdrawal of its capital upon
tbe business men and tho customers of tho
bank, will be disastrous and ruinous. The city
of Pittsburg and adjacent cities and country
cannot afford to Ioso tbo capital, business and'
stability of the bank.
This condition of affairs is stated because,,
since the last recbarter of the bank, the new
constitution has presentedabarrierto renewal,
wbich must be understood. By the seventh
section of the third article of the new constitu
tion, no special law to recbarter the bank. can'
be passed. This necessitates the passage of a
general law. and none such now exists.
The Dank cannot reorganize under the bank
ing company law of the 13th of May, 1878, for
articles of association under it must be entered
into by persons, each one competentnd in bis
own right, who must make a certificate under
their bands specifying tbe terms of association, .
and complying with the law, and acknowl
edging tbe same before a judge or notary
nublic In such a proceeding, necessarily a 11
trustees, and others acting in a fiduciary ca
pacity, whose investmentneedstbeantborftyof
the proper tribunal, must drop out, and tho
bank lose probably one-half its capital. Such a
reorganization cannot supply tbe place of the
"Old Bank" and would not command its in
fluence and ability.
It therefore becomes a duty to the stockhold
er?, and to the public so much interested, to
make known to them tbe situation of the- mat
ter, that an enlightened understanding of tha
necessity of a general law may exist, applicable -to
this bank, and all others needing the means
of renewal. ja3-37
