Court Janitors Take Up Arms Against
"WHO DISOBEY BUILDING EULES.
Players at the Moot Bar Threatened "With
a Eeal Case in Court.
BOIS ACT TOO MUCH Llfc-E OLD TIMERS
The young gentlemen who have been
plavinp court in one of the rooms dedicated
to the use of Judges Hawkins and Over are
apt to be furnished a case of real courting.
It is alleged they have not been as prudent
as they might have been and Lave
drawn down on their heads the wrath of the
janitors, who have thrown themselves
with such force on various officials and the
judges that the attrition has struck lire.
The trouble arose primarily from a very
small spark. Every one who has made the
rounds of the new Court House has had his
vision assaulted at every three or four paces
by large-sired cards adjuring him not
to expectorate on the floor. Kow, the
voung t;eutlemen who run the moot court
have been in the habit of turning these
Mgns, or such as were in the vicinity of the
Orphans' Court room-, and on the reverse
side inscribing an announcement of the
moot court being in hession, and an invita
tion to enter. It appears that the janitor
thought the voung men were acting too
much like the elder lawyers, sort of careless
whether thev obeyed rules or no, Ueatiug
with disdain the'adjuration to spit in the
cusp idores, smokiug Havana cigars or
even vile tobies in places where only an
old member of the bar might be tolerated,
in fact making the manners of their moot
court too much like those ofa real one.
SNORED TOO LOUD.
That the foreman of the last jury that sat
on a murder trial fell asleep and snored so
heavily as to annoy Judge Hawkins and his
court in the next room; that the moot court
sign was left on the door, inviting the popu
lace to enter, thereby annoying the Orphans
Court Judges and suitors, and especially the
tipstaves, who have been strongly inciting
the janitors to rebel.
All this discontent is alleged to have cul
minated in calling the attention of the
Countv Commissioners to the matter, and it
is said' they could think of nothing in the
wav of remedy, except the institution of
some kind of a suit against the voung gen
tlemen. It is said that proceedings have
been entered before either Alderman Mc
Kenna or Alderman lMcMasters, but efforts
to get satisfaction on this point were nuga
torv, nor could anyone be Jound who would
consent to disclose the nature of th2 com
plaint. It was stated somewhat positively,
however, that County Solicitor Geyer had
been instructed to prosecute, and it was in
timated that Messrs. "W. D. Moore, "Will
iam Keardon and Thomas M. Marshall
would look alter the interest of the de
fendants. It could not be learned whether all of the
voung men were sued or only the officers.
The latter are James McKirdy, President;
John X. Dunn. Vice President; Secretary,
P. A. Ammon;-Prothonotary and Clerk of
Courts, T. Morgan Silvey; District At
tornev and Treasurer, Charles Schlegel;
Sheri'ff, Charles Fetterman; County De
tective, .E.tJ- McKenna.
THEIR FUTURE PLANS.
Their friends hope the prosecution will
not interfere with the next session of court,
on Saturday, as at that time it is proposed
to adopt A new constitution and new rules,
and elect new officers. It is also proposed
to elect a supreme court, to be composed of
three members of the bar; an advisory com
mittee and a regular committee to prepare
trial lists. The year will be divided into
four terms of ten" weeks each, ana the execu
tive committee will select judges to serve
ten weeks, judges for all the courts, not ex
cepting the orphans'. The supreme court
will meel twice a year, but the dates have
not yet been nxed.
Twice a month sections of Blackstone are
to be dissected and lectured upon, and mem
bers are required, or at least expected, to
digest these sections so as to be able to dis
cuss them profitably and intelligently for
the benefit of all.
Should the association survive the present
attack, it will be wibdom for the janitors
and tipstaves to give it a wide berth, as
there are supposed to be metes and bounds
to the prerogatives of even janitors and
THE ATTRACTION" THIS WEEK
At Uncus & Hackc'g
Are the unprecedented values in black
silks, all weaves; gros grain, faille Pran
caise, armure-, royals, surahs, satin mer
veilleux and satin rhadames at the uni
form price of SI per yard. "We positively
assert that never before have such values
been offered in these desirable fabrics.
AVhile we have many higher priced grades,
relatively of equal value, we call special at
tention to this SI a yard line as a bargain
worthy your immediate attention.
Black and white striped gros grains,
black and white striped satins, black and
white striped and figured surahs, suitable
lor costumes, skirts or combinations the
handsomest line ever shown in the city.
French challis at 50 cents per yard--only
a small percentage yet arrived of the quan
tity we are importing, although plenty to
make a selection lrom, as the styles are all
new, handsome and desirable.
In our wash goods department we show
an elegant line of the celebrated Koechlin's
French sateens, Anderson's noveltips and
zephyrs, domestic sateens, toile du Xord,
In the linen (housekeepers') department
the attractions are so many it would be
almost impossible to enumerate specially,
and we will only say that our display and
values of towels, table linens, napkins,
honey-comb and Marseilles quilts, scarfs,
tidies, etc., cannot be excelled.
The many attractions in our grand cloak
room (second floor) which we are now
offering, must insure a busy season here.
The special styles we are showing in long
and snort wraps, jackets, etc., presents to
those desiring a fashionable, stylish, well
made and good-fitting garment an opportu
nity not to be neglected.
All we have left of our last importation
of French jerseys will be closed out at 50
per cent reduction S8 quality for $4; $10
quality for S3; S12 quality for S6; ?15

The Work to be Transacted at the Annual
Meeting In Jnne.
M. N. Forney, Secretary of the Master
Car Builders' Association ol .the United
States, has sent notices to this city of the
annual meeting of the association to be held
in Buffalo in June next. The date has not
Vet been decided upon, but it will probably
be about the last of the month. A number
of railroad officials of this city are members
of the association and will attend the con
vention. The following subjects are in the
hands of committees who will report upon
A code of rules for the interchange of
passenger cars,.including sleeping, 'parlor,
chair, basrgage and express cars. This
matter has always been a source or" annoy
ance to railroad officials when hauling the
cars of other roads. A great many lines
haul the cars of other roads at so much per
mile. Other larger lines will not haul pas
senger cars belonging to other roads unless
the parties in the car are provided with 18
full tare passenger tickets. This is the case
with special Pullman cars on the Pennsyl
vania lines. If a Pittsburger charters a
Pullman car for an exclusive trip
to 2ew York he will have to
purchae 18 tickets before the car is
placed on a train. "With the private cars of
officials of other lines it is the custom to pass
the car and party over the line without
charge. Some roads, in addition to lifting
the pass for the car, aKo make each indi
vidual in the car produce a pass or ticket.
Committees will also report on a "stand
ard journal box lid for a 60,000-pound car
and a standard lid for a 40,000-pound car."
E. B. "Wall. Superintendent of Motive
Power of the Panhandle road, will report on
a "standard brake gear for airbrake cars,
with a brake shoe for iron beam."
A committee will also report on "car
heating and lighting." They will select a
steam coupler and will submit it to letter
ballot for adoption. Frank L. Shepard, of
the Pennsylvania Bailroad at Altoona, is
on the committee.
It Has a Balance on Hand, Does Good
Work, bat Ilns Certain Needs.
The Board of Directors of the Allegheny
General Hospital held their annual meeting
President "Woodburn reported that they
needed more room. The dwelling near the
hospital, bought during the year, gave
them 15 more rooms. The cost of improve
ment for the vcar amounted to $9,094 60.
The Superintendent, Miss Florence K.
Tildsey, reported that in 1888, 813 patients
were admitted, 200 more than last year. Of
this number 595 were cured, and 72 died.
The charity patients were 567, The average
cost of patient per day is 97.18 cents.
The financial report shows a balance on
hand of 51,681 98. The Ladies Society
were commended for their kindness. The
training school graduated three nurses, and
admitted 19 pupils during the year.
