WHAT ATTOBKET SHAFER SATS OF IT
A little the largest movement yet de
veloped in the railway and real estate circles
is now on foot, and it is no less than the
conversion of 150 acres of Neville Island
and all of the south channel of the Ohio
river for six miles into additional yard
room for the Pittsburg and Lake Erie Kail
Tray Company. It is, with extensions, the
same project once attempted by J. H. Mc
Creery, but they are not "Wud McCreery
Noah "W. Shafer, Esq., is attorney for the
islanders interested, and as soon as a meet
ing of the railway authorities can be ar
ranged, activehostilities will be inaugurated.
Mr. Shafer states that there appears to be
nothing in the way that is at all discourag
ing at present, except that some of the
islanders do not seem disposed to make
This has hitherto been the home of all the
enterprises pnshed in that direction. Propo
sition after proposition has been made to
the islanders, any one of which would have
trebled or quadrupled its value, bnt the
people did not catch on promptly. It
seems, however, that they are wider awake
now than at any previous time, and it has
dawned on the Pittsburg and Lake Erie
Bailroad managers that it is

an acre for yard room at Chartiers or Mc
Kee's Bocks when land equally available
can be had for 51,000 an acre, and the possi
bilities of vast extension are no longer mere
possibilities, but demonstrated certainties.
The company must have the outlet and can
utilize the cheap ground to fully as much
advantage as the dear. As to some of the
people, they are like nnto some living on
the south bank of the river, waiting for
creatness to be thrust upon them.
It has long been a marvel that this place
has not been utilized, as for railway pur
poses it has advantages not even possessed
by the East End, but a man who has been
urging development for many years offers
an alleged explanation, that there are some
men in the world as mean as a woman in a
railway train, and they will not allow com
munities to advance lest some one more en
terprising than themselves should pay them
two prices for property and still make
money out of it.
Mr. Shafer states that the first move will
be to connect the island at each end with
the railway, and then when the General

would add 480 acres of taxable land to Alle

of his scheme than the railroad company

A Zelienople Tax Collector Arrested
Leaving the Town.
A. W. Phillips, of Zelienople, the man
who was arrested yesterday by Detective
Glenn, of Allegheny, was released last night
upon a deposit of $100 to secure his bonds
men against loss. He was a tax collector at
Zelienople, and sold out his store at that
place a few days ago. Yesterday morning
he bought a round-trip ticket on the Pitts
burg and Western Bailroad and started for
this city, intending to spend the day here.
His bondsmen thought something was
wrong, and that Phillips must be short in
his accounts, or he would not have sold his
store and left town. Acting on this suppo
sition, the man, "whose name is Lusk, tele
graphed to Chief Kirschler, of Allegheny,
asking him to arrest Phillips. .The Chief
did so, and telegraphed to Zelienople for an
officer to come and take the man back.
The Chief received a polite invitation to
bring the man back himself. The latter re
fused to do it, as he had no authority, and,
thinking the man was being unjustly de
tained, he ordered his release. Mr. Phillips
says he will bring suit against Imsk for or
dering his arrest.
AX AUTOMATIC COUPLER.
A. Pittsbnrger'a Novel Invention for Con
necting Railroad Cars.
John Louis Shoenberger, a relative of the
wealthy iron manufacturer of that name, of
this city, has patents in this country and
in England dated August, 1886, for an
automatic car coupler. The coupler can be
used equally well on freight or passenger
cars, and the coupling can be done on high
or low cars. The inventor says cars can be
coupled on the famous Horseshoe curve. It
operates by means of a hook, spring and
buffer, and weighs only 250 pounds. The
action is automatic and the coupling is
effected without shock or strain.
Mr. Shoenberger says he has great hopes
of soon introducing it into general use, as
he notices by a recent number of the Cin
cinnati paper that a bill will be introduced
into the Ohio Legislature to compel the
adoption and application on all trains of
the safest aud most perfect coupler known.

JAIL BREAKERS' STORY.
Miller Makes nDamnalng; Confession Thes
sen Tells How He Cnmo by tho Hope
Warden Berlin Talks.
Edward Thessen and "William Miller, the
two men charged by Warden Berlin with
attempting to escape from the jail, had a
hearing before Magistrate Gripp in the jail
yesterday afternoon. B. H. Johnson
conducted the prosccutidn, the pris
oners having no counsel. The rope
iound in Thessen's cell together
with a knife and two iron hooks, was ex
hibited. Prisoners Eibs, Finnefrog, Britton
and Beams testified to having conversed
with the two principals in the laundry on
tig subject of escaping and the structure
and position of the bars. Beams had con
fessed to Miller that he bad escaped from
the jail at Mnrrysville some time ago.
Warden Berlin testified to having
watched these six men in the laundry for
the past four Thursdays. He did not see
them make any rope, but did see them ex
amining the bars on the outside of the jail
window. Miller confessed to ha vine said to
Finnefrog one time when they stood look
ing down at the yard gate that "Pepper
would be a good thing," inferring that it
could be thrown in the eyes of the guard.
Thessen told a straightforward story to
the effect that a former prisoner, John
Kaylor, had told him he had a rope made
by which to escape, and invited himto join
in the attempt. He expected a friend to
climb up the wall at night and cut the bars,
when he would climb outintothe triangular
yard and thence over the wall to Fifth
avenue. Thessen declined to give a positive
When Kaylor was sentenced to the peni
tentiary he asked Thessen to conceal the
rope. The latter carried small portions of
it into his cell and concealed them in his
pillow, expecting to leave it behind him
when he got his sentence. He had written
several letters to Jennie Ware, in one of
which he asked for acid; He had thought
several times of committing suicide, and
then he wanted to enlist her sympathy, so
she would not testify against him. Jennie
Ware is charged with being an accomplice
Under questioning Thessen still told a
straight story, though his memory was con
veniently uncertain at times. He said
Kaylor, during his absence from his cell,
took the pieces of duck on the edge of his
cot, which he had refused to him.
Magistrate Gripp had the men returned
to their cells and announced that he would
hold Thessen on the charge, and delay de
cision in Miller's case until Monday.
THE DUQUESNE SUXK.
Efforts to be Made To-Morrow to Raise tho
The harbor steamer Duquesne lies on the
river bed of the Monongahela, opposite
Thirty-fourth street, in 12 feet of water.
Her pilot house just appears above the sur
face. An effort will be made to-morrow to
raise the craft.
The adventures of the Duquesne escaped
notice in the more exciting news of the
week. She was moored to the north side of
the river when the cyclone struck the city
last Wednesday. A dozen coal barges on
the south side, at Cook & Graham's saw
mill, were blown from their moorings and
shot clear across the stream with a terrific
fcrce. Jack Slarley, a deck hand, was
aboard. He saw what must happen and
left the boat just in time to save himself.
The barges stove in the whole side of the
Duquesne, and she sunk. She was valued
at $7,000 by her owners.
A GK0CEE IN TK0UBLE.
Various Firms Make TJjjly Charges Against
a Liberty Street Merchant.
Petitions for the issue of attachments
against George C. Boll, the grocer at the
corner of Liberty and Ferry streets, were
filed yesterday. The claims aggregate 20,
526 30, and the claimants are Meyer &
Lange, New York; Marshall, Kennedy &
Co., Arbuckle & Co., limited, and Luebbe
It is claimed that Boll is insolvent and
unable to pay his debts; that he has prop
erty and goods that he is concealing with
intent to defraud his creditors; that he ob
tained the goods knowing that he was in
solvent, and intended to defraud his credit
ors, as he sold the goods at below cost price,
and that Boll has concealed himself in order
to elude his creditors.
Attachments are asked for on Boll's places
of business, at 407 Ferry street and at Lib
erty and Ferry streets.
0UE C0DELESS LAWIEES.
They Are Opposed to Modifying Any Conrt
There would be a radical change in forms
of procedure among lawyers if the Legisla
ture adopts the acts proposed by Judge Ar
nold, of Philadelphia, and known as the
Arnold code. The acts provide for the
establishment of a code for the practice in
the courts throughout the State.

Bar Association yesterday Judge Braden,
Judge Mellon, Mr. McClnng, Mr. Sponsler,
C. C. Dickey, Mr. Henderson, W. S. Wil
son, Thomas Patterson, J. D. Schafer, S. H.
Thompson, and F. C. McGirr opposed it.
The result was the adoption of the following
Resolved, That it is the sense of the Alle-

IT WILL BE OPPOSED.
The Movement to Distribute Prohibition
Literature In the Schools.
A prominent liquor dealer said yesterday
that if the Women's Christian Temperance
Union attempted to distribute constitutional
amendment tracts and advertisements in the
public schools for the purpose of reaching
fathers through children, he would in
augurate a movement to stop such distri
bution. As Etated in Tns Dispatch this
week this plan is contemplated by the ladies
in order to secure votes in the coming cam
paign. The gentleman alluded to says the Pro
hibitionists have no more right to pollute
the schools with tracts for political purposes
than the Republican or Democratic parties.
He thinks there will be no trouble to find
law bearing on the subject.

SOME SECRETS OF THE K. OF L.
Figures Showing the Lack -of Uniformity
in Wages and Prices
IN THE COiN'NELLSVILLE BEGION
Tom Barry has at last had a hearing be
fore the Knights of Labor of this vicinityr
In a three hours' speech he told seyral
hundred Knights who assembled at Lafay
ette Hall last night how he thought they
had been deceived by "Terrence the First,"
as he called the General Master Workman
yot the order. '
The meeting was under the auspices of
Ax Makers' Assembly No. 1548, and E. W.
Murphy, of that local presided. There were
several stanch administrationists in the hall,
who had evidently come for the purpose of
breaking up the meeting, and one of them,
at one time prominent in the
Trades Assembly, avowed his intention
of bringing in a crowd and dispersing the
gathering. He attempted to speak several
times and interrupted Mr. Barry until he
was forcibly ejected from the hall.
Mr. Barrv spoke for three hours, and said
many things that have already been pub
lished in this paper. The substance of his
most interesting remarks fs appended:
I would much rather occupy the platform to
discuss other questions. Sir. Powderly and
his friends have said that I am here
for the purpose of breaking up tho
organization; but this Is not my
mission. 1 merely want to tell of the cowardice
and treachery of the leaders of the Knights of
Labor. I am still a Knight of Labor, notwith
standing my expulsion by the G. E. B., and I
was a union man when some of my detainers
were scabbing in their respective trades. I
believe a great deal of good can be accom
plished by the Kniehts. When I joined there
were no eeneral mofnils.
Mr. Powderly's only answer to my charge of
malfeasance in office was to call me an An
archist and an infidel. It would have been more
honorable i f he had told poverty what had been
done with $195, U00 of their money.
THE KICKEK DEFINED.
They say "Why did not Barry kick sooner?"
I will say in public that l have been kicking
since 1BS3. but have been three times elected
a member of tho General Executive Board
"What do you mean by kickers?" called out
Mr. Ennis, from the audience.
"A kicker in the Knights Is a man who ob
jects to a centralization of power," was Mr.
Barry's reply. Continuing, he said:
I would have resigned a year ago, as my
health had given out, but I found that I would
live longer, and wanted to begin the work of
reformation in the order. After I received a
second stroke of paralysis I requested Hayes,
Aylsworth and Carlton to do my work, but they
refused. Hayes was paid $49 a week while
he was courting his wife, and other members of
the board were paid a like amount for talking
to pretty stenographers.
A report has frequently been circulated all
over the country to tho effect that Powderly
was dangerously ill lrom over work. I saw
him eating dinner on one of the occasions
when he was recorded sick, and this is what he
ate: Soup and fish, roast beef and turkey, pie,
pudding and cream, concluding with fruit and
nuts. Mr. Powderly is one of the most suc
cessful "fakes" in the country. Not one
member of the order can name a
strike that was satisfactorily settled by
Mr. Powderly. It was not Arthur that de
feated our people in the Sonthern strike, but
it was Powderly and John W.Hayes. That
fljht was won when Powderly wired to Irons to
order a resumption of work, after ho had held
a conference with Jay Gould. If be had not
interfered the strike would have been won
without a doubt.
The same thing occurred in the stockyards
strike in Chicago. I had the ficht won when
Pow derly declared the strike oif, telegraphing
his order to mo and to Phil Armour at the same
time. There is not a butcher in Chicago who
does not believe that Terry was .well paid for
John W. Hayes now draws $53 a week salary
for seven days' work, receiving pav for the day
he should spend in church, and fiS a week for
hotel bill!', and he even turned in 23 for
Mrs. Hayes' wash bill and an account for im-
Eorted ale served in his room at the
otel. When Dovey, of your city, was asked
for an itemized account of the expenses, it was
said that if one was made it mightbreakup the
order. Then I said that the order was paying
for this information, and it was Mr. Dovey '8
duty to report, bnt it was not given.
NO EEPOKT GIVEN.
The stenographer's report of the proceedings
at Minneapolis was never published in tho re
port, and the members of tho order are ignor
ant of the proceedings of that body.
The constitution of the order provides for a
fair and impartial trial of members who violate
their obligation; bnt I was never tried. I could
put some of my traducers in the peni
tentiary if I had time to bother with them.
Sir. Barry was here interrupted by cheers,
Hades will never be filled until it gets some
of these people. I have more respect for
Jesse James, who robbed and murdered people
In the West, and who, I believe, had more
honor than some of those cringing scoundrels
who are robbing the poor working people.
Mr. Barry then referred to Pinkerton and his
men as assassins.
Continuing, he said:
Tom O'Reilly was paid 5750 by Powderly and
the order, whe
Haves out of the funds of
the order, when he was not doing anything.
It defrayed bis expenses to
where he went for the benefit
of his health, and the only return the order re
ceived was a baby alligator 1 Mr. Reilly sent it
to headquarters, the freight being paid by the
order, and it was kept in one of.ttie bathtubs in
the place built with poverty's money.
At this point Mr. Funis arose and inter
rupted the speaker, when Chairman Mur-
phv ordered him to sit down, saying: "I"
have learned that you intend to raise a dis
turbence here, and if you do not sit down I
will have you ejected from the hall."
Mr. Barry then proceededj saying that
heretofore D. A. 3 had "sent intelligence to
the General Assembly, but this time it sent
boodleism and a chunk of flesh." He told
how Powderly had transferred locals from
N. T. A. 135 to various districts in order to
increase the membership so that his friends
could be sent to the General Assembly.
District 135, he said, had fallen from 29,000
to 19,000 in less than a month. Continuing,
Terrence the First went before the Congres
sional Committee and swore that we had G0U,
000 members. He only lied on 1341,000 as we had
at that time but 259,000 members.
IN EVIDENCE OF THE CLAIM.
Mr. Barry concluded his remarks by say
ing that all" the big strikes that were ever
settled by the General Executive Board
were settled by him, and showed a gold
watch and chain presented him by strikers
in Cohoes for the work hehad done there.
He stated that he would answer any ques
tions asked, and a number of persons re
sponded, but the questions and answers were
not of special interest. An affidavit from
T. F. Donnelly that he expected to read
could not be procured. Mr. Donnelly, in a
letter which was read, explained that he
could not find it.

PITTSBURG - DISPATCH,
THEY WANT UNIFORMITY.
The 13,000 Coke Workers Will Insist
That Wanes and Prices In the Region
Bo Mndo Uniform some Figure Given.
There is money in coke, evidence of this
having been given in The Dispatch yes
terday morning, when it was announced
that two leading window glass manufac
turers had decided to engage in the business.
Ever since the disruption of the syndicate
there has been no uniformity in wages or
prices. The H. C. Frick Company is the
only concern that adopted a sliding scale of
wages, and the wages paid are Gyi per cent
above those paid at other works in the
region. This scale will remain in force un
til February 1. and although the workers
have madca demand for a uniform scale of
wages, no attention has been paid to the
demand by the operators.
A representative of Coke Country
Chronicle has made a tour through the re
gion and has obtained some information
that will be very valuable to the workers.
A reporter of this paper, who secured a
copy ot the article that will appear in the
current issue of that paper, showed it to
several leading operators audit was pro
nounced correct in every detail. The fig
ures given below will be of interest to the
15,000 men employed in the coke region.
Under the H.C.Frick coke scale the follow

The other companies get as much for
their coke and in some places more rent
for their houses, and can afford to pay the
same wages as the H. C. Frick Company.
There is also a great difference in the
prices charged at the company stores of these
leading companies. A list and comparison
of prices of necessary articles at the stores
of the Union Supply Company (Frick),
Jimtown Works (Sehoonmaker), and tho
Leisenring's stores, are given below :
Frick. Schoon- Lelsen
Men's brogans, per

Tea, 4 lbs. for 1 CO cheapest 60c
Itaspberries, per lb.. 25
Ulackberries.31b. for 25
As will be seen by the above prices the
Sehoonmaker and the Leisenriug firms have
larger profits in the stores than the Frick
Company, although the latter pays higher
wages. The company houses at Jimtown,
it is stated, are almost unfit for habitation.
and lartre rents are charged for them.
The Chronicle concludes by saying:
Aside from the matter of wages paid for
labor and the "pluck-me" prices,' the measuro
taken by some of the employers to crush out
and keep out organization was not only cow
ardly, tyrannial and un-American, but it was
treacherous and inhuman. To enter into de
tails would require too much space, but suffice
it to say: Tho difference in the condition of the
men with and without a 'scale to govern their
wages should convince all that it is only justice
to men and operators that all should have the
same pay and privileges.
Organization among tho workers is a neces
sity and the sooner all are in the fold of tho
National Progressive Union the better.
As before stated, the H. C. Frick Company
are not paying wages that are too high. In
fact their scale should he higher than it is, but
nevertheless the others should be compelled to
give the advances necessary to equalize wages.
The workmen could get it without a strike if
they were in a position to strike if necessary,
but they should prepare, and if circumstances
compelled a stoppage of work, public opinion
would not be against them.
Several large operators were seen by a
Dispatch reporter yesterday in relation to
the report that a restriction" of production
was necessary, and the substance of their
remarks is given. The demand during the
past month was extraordinary, consumers
evidently expecting an advance in price.
Most of them have a stock on band at pres
ent, and the demand has fallen off. In
order to prevent an overproduction some
operators have decided to shut down their
works one day a week. The lull is only
temporary, and it is believed all the ovens
will be in operation six days a week in a

those who were in a critical condition are
rapidly increasing. Quinton Barber, the
colored man from Millvale, is yet in a dan

remains lay in the parlor of the little home.
Herb was a scene of inexpressible sadness.
The old father and mother, the promised
bride and the brothers and sisters sat around
all that was mortal of the loved one, in deep,
unutterable grief. Bev. J. W. Witherspoon
read a scripture lesson, and then briefly
THE GREAT CALAMITY
that had saddened so many homes. He
dwelt upon the grand character and esti
mable qualities of the deceased and uttered
words of comfort for the living. The ser
vices closed with an eloquent prayer for
God's blessing and comlorting love. The
interment took place at Hilldale Cemetery
after a brief service.
About 150 members of Carpenters' Union,
No. 211, of which the deceased was a mem
ber, attended the funeral in a hody. The

was able to go to the cemetery.
The floral offerings were numerous and of

Men Who Carry Plenty of Watches
Their Tronscrs' Pockets, as Well as
Other Goods Various Suspects Cor
raled. Officer Hugh Madison yesterday forenoon
picked up two men on Sixth avenue, and
ran them in for-investigation. They regis
tered as Frank Lewis and Louis Denna
buck, Erie. The officer thought they were
carrying too much 'cargo. It consisted of
two revolvers, a lot of cartridges, five silk
handkerchiefs, several new pocketbooks,
two watches carried in trousers' pockets, $59
in cash on one and $17 on the other, and a
miscellaneous assortment of things too
numerous to mention.
Officer Sol Coulson found two Italians
running a candy store on the steps of the
Masonic Bank building, on Smithfield
street. Coulson thought they occupied
more room than they paid taxes and rent
for, and blocked the street, and so he took
them to the Central station. They gave the
names of B. Episcopo and Joseph Mazzoni.
Officer McKelvey lassooed three men on
Water street, Frank Hughes, John Her

ME. MORROW EXPLAINS.
Moreno Fees Are Customary nnd the City
Superintendent of the Morgue George A.
Morrow was seen last evening in reference
to a statement which had appeared in an
afternoon paper that a fee of $5 had been
demanded from the friends for the deposit
of the body of each victim of the recent dis
aster. Mr. Morrow said:
It is quite true that I asked a fee of $5 for the
bodies. It was more human to wash and clean
the bodies of the victims and care for them
than to let them lie there uccared for, just as
they were brought in, for several hours. Any
undertaker would have charged as much or
more for the same service. Moreover, it is
customary to charge that fee in all cases. The
fee was not insisted upon in any case, and in
that of tho man who worked for Mr.'Skelton,
and who had no friends here, no fee was
charged at all. None of the friends made any
complaint about the fee at the time, and that
was all I profited by it.
The service of washing those bodies was cer
tainly worth that much. The man referred to
lay in the morzue from 3 p. it. until noon the
next day. His brother identified him that
night but did not take him away until the fol
lowing day at noon and made no complaint
about the charge. If any of the parties are
needy or dissatisfied, I will refund tho money.
Neither the city nor the county contribute one
cent to the maintenance of this morgue.
AGAINST THE REBEL FLAGS.
Southern Congressmen Afraid to Tote for
John H. Stevenson, of this city, has re
ceived a letter from a Congressman to whom
he wrote in regard to the presentation of a
bill making it a crime to display rebel flags
in any commonwealth in theUnited States.
In the letter the Congressman states that
the present session of Congress will be too
short to present it this term, and there is
no use trying to get it through the next
From the complexion of the latter the
writer argues that too much influence will
be brought to bear upon the representatives
from Southern States, and they could not
be persuaded to support the measure.
These members rely on the ex-rebel votes
for continuance in office, and would he

against the bill. The writer says there is
not enough power in Congress to prevent
the display of rebel flags in the South.

"Bum" is dead. He met his death by the
hand of an assassin. After a long career of
ups and downs, with more of the latter than

"Bum" is a dog, you know, and he came

FUMY MOOT COURT.
The Law Students Conduct a Trial
Before Judge Fetterman,
RESULTING Iff AMUSING TILTS.
The Plaintiff Tangled, led to Lie and
Forced to Swear to It.
A JIUBDER CA8E NEXT ON THE DOCKET
The first mock trial of the Winter series
of the Law Students' Association of the
Allegheny County Bar was held yesterday
in room 21 of the Court House. A trial
will be held every Saturday, and all kinds
of cases will be argued. The young men
have secured the co-operation and approba
tion of the oldest attorneys at the bar, and
they expect to derive a great amount of
practical experience through the trials.
The trial yesterday was presided over by
Judge Fetterman, who imparted a wise and
patriarchial appearance to the youthful
court. I. Morgan Silvey acted as clerk.
The attorneys for the plaintiff were Messrs.
Dunn, Lewis and McCirdy, and the defense
was represented by Messrs. Goss, Challender
and Johnston. The title of the case was
Ashworth versus Schlegel. It was an action
on a promissory note drawn by the defendant
in favor of plaintiff, the payment being re
fused. The jury was Urawn from the large
crowd of spectators.
The opening address was made by Mr.
McCirdy, and the closing argument by Mr.
Challender. A number of ludicrous state
ments were made by the witnesses, and
every now and then the Court had to "sit
down" very hard on some of the ambitious
young attorneys. The latter asked
AXiI. SORTS OP QUESTIONS,
and secured more contradictory questions
than could he heard at the naturalization of
a Celtic would-be policeman on account of
The plaintiff, Mr. Ashworth, was not
present, and F. V. McMullin appeared in
his stead. One of the attorneys for the de
fense, in his cross-examination, asked the
plaintiff what time he went to New York.
Plaintiff I went to Hew York before the
note became due.
Attorney Did yon go to New York be
fore or after the maturity of the note?
Plaintiff Before the maturity of the
Attorney Were you not in Pittsburg
on the day your store was burned, which
was a week'after the note became due?
Plaintiff Yes. sir.
The witness here became confused, and
the attorneyagain asked the question: "Did
you go to New York before the burning of
your store or afterward?" .
Plaintiff I say I' mean to say I went
to New York after the burning of my store,
and not before the maturity of the note.
Attorney Then you mean to say that
what you have testified previous to this is
untrue, and that you have told a lie?
Plaintiff Yes, "sir.
Attorney Then yon are a falsifier, and
you have not told the truth in the matter?
A TOUGH ADMISSION.
The witness grew read, stammered several
times, and finally confessed that he had not
tola the truth. At this there was a ripple
of laughter from the audience.
Bev. Dr. Lindsay, pastor of the United
Presbyterian Church, was called to testify
for the plaintiff. In describing the location
of his church he also got very much mixed
up. Under the cross fire of the attorneys for
the defense he stammered and said his
church was at the corner of Ferry street and
The defense had a rude map of McKees
port, and tried to make the plaintiff show
wnere His store in mat piuce was auuuieu.
The plaintiff, when put upon the stand
the second time, was asked how he could be
certain that he had received a $100 note, as
this trausaction occurred about ten yeara
ago? The plaintiff replied that he could
remember such an occurrence, especially as
it was an unpaid note. This caused a smile
from the Court, and boisterous laughter from
The trial consumed nearly the whole
afternoon, and, at 430 o'clock, the court ad
journed to meet Saturday next. The
murder trial of the Commonwealth vs White
will then he taken up. The trial is
to be the result of a supposed murder com
mitted in this county in May, 1883. The
Commonwealth will be represented by
Messrs. Lindsay, Ashworth and McMullin,
and Messrs. Ammon, Briel, Bitchic and
Schlegel will appear for the defense. It is
expected that Thomas M. Marshall, Esq.,
will sit on the bench during the trial.
The following Saturday a suit for loss of
life against the Pittsburg, Fort Wavne and
Chicago Bailroad will be tried. The ac
cident is supposed to -have occurred at

The opening of our new tea department
was a gratifying success. Our new arrange
ments greatly increased our accommoda
tions, but apparently this was what the peo
ple were waiting on, for they flocked in, and
we were as badlv crowded as before. It is
very apparent that the old chestnut of
"presents given away with tea" has become
very moldy indeed, and the people are with
us when we offer them good tea at wholesale
prices and send them to the crockery store
for their crockery ware.
Every tub stands on its own bottom in
our store, and we sell everything cheap be
cause we sell cheap, and we don't put any
extra profit on our tea to make up losses on
One of the popular features of our new tea
department is our arrangements for drawing
tea on a moment's notice. Everyone cau
taste the tea before buying. One of the fre
quent remarks about our 19c tea was: "Ob,
how cheap ! But it can't be good." Then
Mr. Shaw was in his element, and, pouring
out the tea, said: "Taste it." That settled
it, and it was a sale every time. Of course
there are some people who have not sense
enough to come in out of the wet when it
rains, nnd these people always judge tea by
the price they pay for it. But the majority
of people have "horse sense," and as they
drink tea every day are able to tell good tea
when they teste it.
Buckeye flour is having a wonderful
boom. People are tired of flour that "tastes
like chips,' and appreciate the Buckeye,
that has the full strength of the wheat.

Squire Fritz, the only acting justice in Green,

Instead of none, as Mr. Fleming asserts.
In reply to this Mr. Fleming, the drug
gist, said to a Dispatch reporter last night
that he did not mean to misrepresent tho
Judge. He had not said he was a Prohibi

thesame way Prohibitionists do. As indi
