ON THE OTHER HAND.
Mr. 0. P. Scaife Takes Issue With F.
M. Magee on Street Eailwajs.
EXPLAINING A DOUBLE DAKGEB.
The Parallel Clause Would Forbid a Tiaduct
and Allegheny Lines,
The Lafferty street railway bill has ex
cited more comment than any bill yet pre
sented to the Legislature. The Dispatch
yesterday contained an interview with F.
M. Magee, Esq., who, it seems, wrote the
bill, in which he stated that the clause pro
hibiting paralleling did not affect this city.
Mr. O. P. Scaife, President of the Observ
atory Hill Passenger Itailway, (the Alle
gheny electric line), was subsequently seen,
and he takes a quite different view of it.
To a Dispatch reporter he said:
I am glad to notice the position taken editori
ally by The Dispatch on the proposed Ml.
In my opinion no more outrageous act was ever
introduced into a Legislature. Any one ac
quainted with tbe topography of the two cities
of Pittsburg and Allegheny, can easily see how
it will prevent accommodation to vast numbers
of our citizens in the rapidly growing outlying
districts. Particularly would this be the case
with the city of Allegheny, which is not as well
supplied with passenger railway facilities as
Pittsburg. One of the objective points of all
dnes in Allegheny is Pittsburg, and to get
there, a new line must necessarily reach one of
tbe numerous bridges crossing the Allegheny
river. In fact these bridges become
THE HUB OB CEXTEK
of the various systems. Those now existing
are the Pittsburg, Allegheny and Manchester,
crossing the Sixth street bridge, and by a
special act of the Legislature it has an entire
monopoly of this bridge, which cannot be dis
turbed. This road has branches, or radiallines.
one extending to the West End, via Lacock and
Rebecca streets, and another to the Bast End
via Ohio street, the main line extending west
on Ohio. The Pleasant Valley represents
another radial line, crossing the Northside
bridge via Sandusky and Federal streets to the
northwest, and owning the People's Park Rail
way via the Hand street bridge and Anderson
street, diverging on Federal street to the north
east. The Union Line, crossing the Union
bridge, running west, is owned by the Pitts
burg, Allegheny and Manchester Company.
Now, there is a large area of territory lying
between these various lines which is still un
accommodated with street railway conveyance,
except the people walk a long distance, and
even then cannot find accommodation, as the
business is too great for existing lines to handle
It would be impossible, however, to construct
a new line into these sections, so badly needed,
without paralleling for a considerable distance
nearer than L000 feet the other lines, as the
center of the systems, viz: the bridges, is ap
proached, so that the paralleling clause of the
proposed bill would effectually cut off all fu
ture accommodation to this vast and growing
portion of Allegheny.
The Observatory Hill Passenger Railway an
electric line recently constructed was chart
ered under the act of 1S79, the termini being
Wood street ana Sixth avenue, Pittsburg, and
the Cityline on the Perrysvillejlank road, Al
legheny. The portion from City Hall, Alle
gheny, to the junction of the Perrysville and
Butcher's Run roads, about three and a half
miles, was first constructed at an enormous
expense and under great engineering difficul
ties, opening tbe entire northern portion of the
city, conceded by all to be the most beautiful
suburban country of the tw o cities, but which,
for want of facilities, had been lying in an en
tirely undeveloped state, and necessarily so be
cause neither cable nor animal power conld be
nsed, owing to the grades and curves. It re
mained for electricity to solve the problem.
The Observatory Hill line having proved a suc
cess, the franchise was obtained from the Alle
gheny Councils, on the petition of almost all
property owners, to complete the line along
Federal street to Lacock, and thence by La-
coc& 10 sanauEKy ana we jorcnsiae criage.
W7IAT HESDEBED THEM.
An ordinance was introduced In the Pittsburg
Councils for the Pittsburg end, but, beyond
reference to a committee, has never been acted
upon. The company, however, had prepared
to enter on tbe construction of the extension to
the Northside bridge when the decision of the
Supreme Court was announced, declaring the
act of 1879 unconstitutional, under which the
road was chartered. The company was then
compelled to await remedial legislation from
the present Legislature, and an ordinance is
pending in the Allegheny Councils extending
the time for the completion of the proposed ex
tension to the Northside bridge, and also pro
riding for the construction of a branch line into
part of the territory heretofore mentioned,
which is without street railway accommodation.
It will be thus seen that should any bill cover
ing the rechartering of street railways atnres
ent, without charters under the Supreme Court
decision, contain a clause prohibiting the paral
leling of lines nearer than 1,000 feet, or the plac
ing of additional tracks upon any street for
more than 600 feet, without the consent of ex
isting lines, no extension to Pittsburg of the
Observatory Hill line could be made, or branch
constructed, as proposed.
When Mr. Fred Magee states that the pro
posed bill does not affect the city he is laboring
under a very grave mistake, to say the least
If specially written to cripple the growth of
Allegheny City, it could not have been better
framed. It is well known that the lines now
crossing the bridges are totally unable to ac
commodate the travel, and there is an urgent
demand for new lines with increased facilities.
"WHAT DEPENDS ON XT.
The growth of Allegheny is dependent in
large part on its citizens having facilities to
reach the business centers. To close the ave
nues of entrance to her outlying districts
would be to endanger her prosperity for many
years. Instead of legislation prohibiting the
paralleling of lines, so far as Allegheny is con
cerned, there is need of legislation permitting
the use by new lines of the tracks of existing
lines for a like distance where they lead to
bridges, so that additional lines, when needed,
maybe constructed to tbe business centers.
Such legislation will be very strongly urged by
the citizens of Allegheny.
To all appearances this Lafferty bill seems to
have been Specially designed to injure the Ob
servatory Bill Railway and to place it in the
hands of a monopoly now existing and seeking
to obtain entire control of the streets of Alle
gheny and Pittsburg, through the Legislature,
which it could not obtain through the Coun
cils. It is not proposed to allow the electric
lme to carry its passengers to Pittsburg, but
they must change cars and pay two fares, as at
A SAMTLE STBANGULATIOIT.
To show how far reaching the effect of the
proposed bill wonld be, it is well known a char
ter for a bridge of magnificent proportions has
been issued to cross the. Allegheny river from
Arch street to Fifth street, Pittsburg, over
which no street railway could cross because be
ing nearer than 1,000 feet to existing lines.
It is claimed by Mr. Magee that the parallel
ing clause is inserted for the benefit of Phila
delphlans. How this can be so lam at a loss to
understand, as everyone visiting that city
knows almost every street running north and
south and east and west has its parallel lines in
but few instances over 600 feet apart, and car
rying vast numbers of passengers. "What is
true of Philadelphia now will be true of the
rapidly growing city of Allegheny in the near
future, if allowed to grow without legislative
restriction or monopolistic creations.
A bill Is needed, and must be passed, to
allow all companies chartered under tbe act of
1S79 to have their existing charters made valid.
Nothing more is needed than to have the old
act apply to the entire State instead of to cities
of the second and third class, and thus remov
ing the objections of the Supreme Court.
No effort will be spared to acquaint the
Legislature with all tbe facts, and to secure
not only the elimination of tbe objectionable
features of the proposed bill, but also thn In
sertion of a clause allowing the use of tracks
of other street railways leading to bridges, as
I have indicated. That would be honest legis
lation for the people, and not in the interests
of proposed monopolies

Once officials were elected by Republicans by
one and three majority. Now it' is so large as
to be out of all danger.
No, I do not think the influx of oil producers
and their employes to the countysince thelocal
option vote will have any effect. Some of them
are drinking men, but many of them will vote
for the amendment. They have got used to
doing without their beer and whisky since lo
cating among us. The distilling contingent
from along the river exert no Influence what
ever in politics of the county, nor did they ten
years ago. One of their number was defeated
in his candidacy for Prothonotary one year.
A Friend to Oiailllers.
An hour after this interview I happened
to meet a farmer at the Court House. He
belongs to the eastern part of the county,
and gave me a very breezy little talk with
the conditions that I would not use his
name. Possibly he was afraid of his social
surroundings. He said:
I am a friend of the distillers. I sell one of
them considerable rye with which to mako
whisky, but that is not why I am opposed to
constitutional amendment. I shU vote againBt
it because I believe such amendments aro
aimed at personal liberty and unjust to the In
terests legislated against. Now. a few years
ago when the Legislature In this State was
about passing the law prohibiting the sale and
manufacture of oleomargarine, I wrote to our
Representative at Harrisburg giving notice of
my protest at least. That may seem odd to
you, when you remember that about all the
farmers, and especially those of this county,
were crazy for such an enactment. That law
was framed with a selfish motive, and. although
I had the fiale of as much butter stopped by the
popularity of oleomargarine as any of the
farmers, I interposed my voice against my own
interests because it was wrong to abolish any
honest Industry and not compensate the loser.
Now, I look at this liquor question in the same
way. I am a strictly temperance man, but dis
approve of the principle of this movement.
Hcpublicausnnd Democrats Both.
Ii. McCarroll, Esq., Chairman of the
County Democratic Committee, when inter
1 should think the constitutional amendment
proposition will be adopted in this county, by
what majority though I cannot predict I ex
pect the whole vote polled in June will bo
light It would be heavier if the decision of
the matter had been left off until the Novem
ber elections, but 1 suppose the leaders feared
its mixture with politics at that time, and 1
guess it would have become a party measure if
put before the people at a general election. It
will not be a partisan question in Washington
county under any circumstances. I have
knowledge of many Democrats who will voto
for the amendment. Our long abstinence from
licenses here has been the means of educating
the people to prohibition. Nobody here thinks
of wanting liquor sold.
Not a Folitlcnl Qncstloc.
"W. S. Parker, Esq., the present Chair
man of the Republican County Committee,
I see no reason why the amendment should
not be adopted in this county. As it is not a
political question I cannot venture an opinion
as to the majority. It will not shape itself to
party lines, but will be contended for on its
"Has there been any contest in politics
here lately that brought in the liquor ques
tion as an issue?"
"Yes, to a certain extent. When the
present Judge Mcllvain was elected a fight
was made upon him under the belief that he
would continue the policy of the judges to
refuse licenses. There were other issues, too.
Mcllvaine's majority was 500, while the
balance of the ticket had from 700 to 800
majority. The Republican majority in last
fall's election was, I think, 1,954."
The Prohibition vote in "Washington
county for St. John in 18S4 was 383. In
1888 this had increased to 420 for Fiske.
For to-morrow's issue I will 6end you the
sentiments from another county.

A TEXAS CUSTOM.
A Slob Attempts to Lynch Criminals, and
SeTcral Persons Aro Hilled.
St. Louis, January 20. A dispatch from
Fort Worth, Tex., received here very late
last night, says Sheriff Richardson, of this
county, received a telephone message about
midnight from Graham, in Young county,
to the effect that while a Deputy United
States Marshal, with a posse of Graham cit
izens, was escorting the four Mar
low brothers, Buck Hart and
another man named Pierce to the
Parker county jail at Weatherford, the
prisoners being indicted for four murders
and eight cases of horse theft, a mob of 30
citizens attempted to lynch them. The
Marshal and posse defended the prisoners,
when a terrible fight took place, two of the
Marlow boys and four of the posse were
killed at the first fire. The fight continued,
and another one of the Marlows and Pierce
were wounded, and another one of the citizens
mortally hurt. The prisoners, Pierce Mar
low and Buck Hart, escaped, but all are
said to be wounded. The fight took place
2 miles from town. It is not known how
many of the mob were hurt.
A large posse has been made up in Gra
ham and are in pursuit of the fugitives and
the members of the mob. Sheriff Kichard-

JSrECTAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1
Newabk, January 20. In a saloon
quarrel last night over the payment for some
liquor, Edward Burton was dangerously
wounded by receiving two ugly stabs in the
back under each shoulder. Burton made
his way to the city prison, and fell fainting
into the door. He was covered with blood.
It is probable he will die. The attempted
murderer is in jail.
Frank Hendershot went to his home on
Fifth street, and finding the door locked,
broke it open, and discovered John Fitz
simmons in company with his wife. Hen
dershot secured a hammer and dealt Fitz
simmons several terrific blows on the head,
crushing his skull. Fitzsimmons is in a
dangerous condition, and cannot, it is
thought, recover. Hendershot is under ar

STREET ACT CHANGES.
Further Amendment! of a BUI In Which
Pittsburg Is Interested In Several Ways
Slaking It Consistent.
Speaking of Lafferty's street act amend
ment bill for Pittsburg, Controller Morrow,
in conversation with a reporter, pointed out
a few of the latest changes in the draft of
the bill as amended. Among them was the
corporation of this provision in section 8:
The costs and expenses of grading, paving or
macadamizing streets or alleys shall be levied
npon the properties benefited thereby by the
Board of Viewers after the Department of
Public Works shall have furnished them a cer
tificate of the cost of such Improvement Dam
aces by reason of grading or change of grades
shall be levied and assessed by the board upon
properties benefited by such Improvements.
Then, to obviate all further possibility of
suits for consequential damages in cases
where appeals from improvement assess
ments may result in quashing the proceed
ings, the following proviso is inserted in
Provided, That in no event shall the city be
liable upon its contracts for such improve
ments, beyond tbe amount agreed upon in the
contract to be paid by the city from its general
fund, should such proceedings be quashed or
set aside by the Court for informality or any
Another quite essential amendment is
that which, as follows, does away with the
possibility of assessing unjust costs upon
the city in cases of appeal from improve
ment assessments, wherein the appellants
are not wholly successful:
In case the appellant shall not recover an
amount greater than that allowed or awarded
by the Board of Viewers, he shall pay all the
cost of such appeal, and in case the amount
allowed by the jury shall be greater than that
so allowed and awarded by the Board of
Viewers of street Improvements, the Court
shall order the record ot the cause or causes to
be returned to the Board of Viewers of utreet
improvements with directions to assess the dif
ference upon such properties as the Board may
find benefited by such improvement.
