The New Ideas of Prominent
.- Educational People
ABE LOGICALLY ADVANCED
At An Interesting Session of the
EX-PKESIDENTB. B. HAYESSPEAKS
Manual Training in the PuMIc Schools
Advocated fcy Him.
A TALK OS THE EDUCATIONAL FOECES.
An interesting! session of the Pittsburg
Teachers' Institute was held in the First
Presbyterian Church on "Wood .street last
evening. A very Urge audience was pres
ent and the snbjeots discussed will no doubt
create no ideas in the minds of those to
whom the education of the child is one of
the duties of their lives.
Dr. Kearns called the meeting to order.
The institute was opened by a chorus from
the Liberty School rendering the "Lorelei,"
a German ballad. Her. Dr. Robinson then
lead in prayer. The Chairman of the in
stitute then made a few introductory re
marks, and then introduced Hon. Ruther
ford B. Hayes. The ex-President of the
United States was greeted with applause as
he stepped on the rostrum. A brief report
of his address follows:
The friends of industrial education believe
that the time has come when the American
public school shall supply a more practical
education than is now furnished. 1 bee of you
to remember that if 1 speak with enthusiasm
it is sot due to the enthusiasm Of a new con
vert. The terminal principle which Is at the
bottom of it was given to me when a boy.
Almost SO years ago at college. Dr. McGough,
in an address, said there was a wide difference
between a wise man and a learned man. As
an illustration, he cited the learning of Dr.
Samuel Park, of England, who waft a peevish,
ill-tempered and arrogant man. He did noth
ing worth remembering. He is a specimen of
a learned man, but not 'a wise man. 'The
Indian chief Tecumseh could not write, but
he knew how to found a home In the wilds.
A NATIVE DEMOSTHENES,
and the English were not mistaken when they
made him a Brigadier General. Said be: "Te
cumseh was a wise man, if not a learned man."
Does the American public school fit a man
for the battles of life; We test public men
and public actions by the results. The people
of America have risen to such a position that
they can be depended upon in the time of
peril. The American public school and col
lege are the causes, and I wonld not disparage
or belittle them.
They are of human origin, and naturally
there must be defects. It has been the pride
of its supporters that the American school is
constantly improving. There has been groat
advancement made. It is not my wish to take
anythingaway from the school, but to add to it
thf new department, manual training.
The many thousands who are pouring into
our schools mako it necessary for a new de
partment, the spending of an hour or two each
day in the study of the skilled labor of the
country. It you were to ask a young man in
college to-day whom he envied the most in this
country to-day. it would not be the man of one
talent, but the man of many.
Chauncey M. Depew says he thanks his kind
old Dutch father up in Peekskill, who made
him work when a ounginan: for if he had
not, Chauncey would be keeping a store up in
William Mather, of England, says the effect
or the publ'c school system in the United
wiates is to give tne pupils a good general edu
cation In literary pursuits, but that it tends to
unfit them for manual labor. Is he right?
Think of it.
OMINOU8 SICKS Or ME TIME.
Cart Schurz says we may regard as signs of
the time the many young men who are raised
on farms and come to the city in order to get
rich; young men shunning manual labor and
obtaining wealth by speculations. This Is a
ditemper which is spreading.
Rev. Dr. Haygood, of Georgia, says he counts
it one of the most hopeful signs of the time
that hand training is coming to be recognized as
one of the elements of a good education.
He who has learned to despise hand labor
gets into habits of vice and idleness, which
lead down to paths of crime and wickedness.
I bae found that self-made men have always
gained their first lessons in life by manual
What maywc expect as a result of work?
Fine bodies; good health. How many boys go
from college to the life of an invalid? 1 have
no fault to find with gymnasium or field sports;
but it is work, skilled work, which gives tho
After all, what is education? What is its end?
It Is character. One of the subjects which has
mierefctea roe lately is mat oi inc suppression
of crime. If yon wish to reform a criminal,
yon must put him to work. There is a large
percentage of men in convicts1 cells to-day who
can read and write; but few who are skilled In
We undervalue skilled laborers. Put all our
boys and girls in schools where skilled labor is
respected, and tbey will not look down upon
the laboring man, as many of tbem now do.
The speaker paid a eulogy to the works
of Abraham Lincoln and Charles Sumner,
and pointed out the difference in the lives
of the two men one ot whom had the best
of educational training and the other had
none. He then closed his remarks with
another appeal for the support of manual
training in the public schools.
The Liberty school chorus then sang sev
eral selections. Kiss Annie Asper con
ducted the singing.
Hon. JL A. Xewall, Superintendent of
Pnblic Instructions of Maryland, made an
address on the subject of "Educational
Forces." He said:
four good institutions.
In the olden time, when I went to church
more regularly than I do now, and then the
preacher divided his sermon into parts. t will
divide my address into four parts Home,
School, Church and State.
With home there must be love and obedience.
The home must provide amusement for the
children. The boy who learns from a stern
father that he must steal bis fun or lose it
altogether, has taken his first lesson in stealing
as a fine art. The girl who finds more pleasure
at any place but home stretches her hands forth
for Dead Sea fruit. Love well directed will
save the young. The borne must also provide
instructions. A good deal of the formal In
struction given to children is thrown away. I
mean by this such lessons as teaching the
child words which cannot be comprehended by
Next to the home is the school. A good
school Is a continuation of a good borne. It
Uie home is bad, the teacher will have a hard
time; but If the home is good the pupil will be
the same. As the home is the entrance to the
school, so Is the school the vestibule of the
church: not so much for religious tralnlnc, but
for moral Instruction. I speak not now of any
denomination, but of all. This is a tendency
to which the Americans will not lead. They
regard their schools with as much veneration
as their church. Onr schools are dailv stiema.

A Wealthy Gentleman's Funeral.
The funeral of the late Bobext Chessman,
of Etna, who died on Tnesday at the age
of C9, occurred yesterday from his home on
KIdge street. Hector Calvert, of the Episco
pal Church, officiating. The service was
very impressive. The interment was in
Greenwood Cemetery. "Mr, Chessman, who
was a native of New Hampshire, was one of
the most thrifty of Etna's business men,

A BAD MAT BUSINESS
Is Prevailing nt the Penitentiary, and
IVnrdcn Wright Soy the Mnharneko
Investigation Caused It.
The Prison Board of the Riverside Peni
tentiary had a meeting last night at the resi
dence of Mr. James HcCutchcon, on Irwin
avenue, Allegheny, and inasmuch as it had
been rumored that the fated f Dr. Maharneko
was to be decided at this meeting, a Dis
patch reporter called at tho residence of
All the gentlemen of the hoard except
President G. A. Kelly, were present, and
when "Warden "Wright was asked about the
object of the meeting, he replied:
"This was simply a financial meeting,
such as we have very often. There was
nothing transacted which might be of the
least interest to the public at large. Any
how, yon may rest, assured that the Mahar-
neko case has not been discussed by us. The
mere fact that Mr. Kelly, the President, is
absent is sufficient evidence that such is not
the case, because we could not form any de
cision without him."
"Is it true, "Warden," that gentleman was
then asked, "that the mat business at the
penitentiary has fallen off since this investi
"Yes, that is so. In fact onr demand has
decreased to such an extent that we have
only half as many men at work now as we
had before the investigation."
"Do you attribute this decrease in de
mand for your mats to the investigation and
its publication in the newspapers?"
"Yes, I do."
"How many men have you engaged in
the mat business?"
"Two hundred and forty.five prisoners
generally; bat, owing to the existing lull,
naif of them had to go back to the cells, be
cause we have no employment for them."
The statement that Governor Beaver and
a committee of the State Legislature were
coming to Pittsburg to investigate the
prison was denied yesterday. It was said,
however, that such "a committee visits the
various institutions which receive State ap
propriations every year, for the purpose of
determining whether the expenses might be
curtailed in some manner.
A NEW TURNER HALL.
The Allegheny Turnverein la abont to Build
an Edifice With the Largest Gymnasium
to the Tiro Cities.
The plans for a new Turner Hall in
Allegheny are now being made by the
architect, and the first stone is to be laid by
The new hall is to be the property of the
Allegheny Turnvercin, whose headquarters
were destroyed by fire about a year ago.
The cost of the new bailding will amount to
over 15,000, and it will occupy tho site of
the old one on South Canal street, Alle
gheny. The material to be used in its con
struction will be sandstone and brick.
The gvmnasium hall will not only be the
largest, but also the most complete in ap
pointments, in the two cities. The dimen
sions will be 41x76 feet, It will also be
from 35 to 40 feet high. The ground floor
of the gymnasium will probably be covered
with asphaltum, and the fittings and ap
paratus are all to be new and of the most
The Allegheny Turnverein has the largest
class ot children in the two cities and, to
accommodate them all, is the principal rev
son for making the gymnasium so large.
Outside of the gymnasium hall there will
be a very large room set apart for the sing
ing section of the Turnverein.
The hall proper, which is to be used for
dancing and theatrical purposes, will have
dimensions of 40x70 feet. A large stage
will be added to that, and all the modern
improvements are to be introduced to make
it suitable for these purposes.
Mr. Josef Btillburg is the architect of the
hall, and the plans will be on exhibition
F0MD DNDER THE ICE.
Mrs. Joseph Nossnck, of lilillvale, Who
Had Evidently Committed Sniclde.
Yesterday two men cutting ice at the
head of Herr's Island in the Allegheny
river discovered the body of a woman.
They took it out and removed it to Herman
& Ebbert's undertaking rooms on Ohio
street, Allegheny. It was known that Mrs.
Clara Nossack, wife of Joseph Nossack, of
Millvale, was missing, and Mr. Nossack
was sent for. He identified the body at once.
Mrs. Nossack had been missing Irom
home for some weeks, and a reward for in
formation relating to her had been offered
by her husband, who is a respectable resi
dent of Millvale. She had left home, after
threatening to do herself harm, and was not
seen again after walking out of the house.
An inquest was held, and a verdict of
suicide was rendered. Mrs. Nossack leaves
two children, the eldest being 4 years of age.
The last seen of Mrs. Nasseck alive was
on the evening of January 7. She was
standing at the end of the Forty-third street
bridge, accompanied by her little dog. The
next morning, when her husband started to
hunt for her, the dog was still standing at
the bridge, and this led ;to the conclusion
that she had committed suicide. Efforts
were immediately ,made to find the body,
but without sucoess.
K0T QUITE TO A FINISH
How a Quid of Tobacco and a Little Claret
Interfered With a Fight.
Two newsboys, about "knee-high to a
duck," edified Fifth avenue last evening by
a knockout, a la Sullivan-McCaffrey. They
showed considerable grit and an immense
amount of "science," and danced about like
two bantam cocks in a manner that wonld
have been amusing had it not,been brutal.
But one of the boys had a wad of tobacco
in his mouth, which necessitated bis spit
ting at intervals, and distracted his atten
tion to such an extent that his opponent
finally drew the claret, and the fight was
adjourned in order to have the nasal hemor
rhage stopped. By this time each boy saw
a chance to sell papers in opposite direc
tions, and, in their business zeal, forgot all
about the fight.
CESTRAL TRACTION BIDS
Prove to be So Badly Mixed That the Con
tracts Can't be Let.
The Central Traction Company met yes

construction of the road, but found them so
mixed that it was decided to refer them to

SOME BIG SUBPBISES.
Three Important and lively Primary
Elections in Allegheny. '
PROMINENT CANDIDATES BEATEN.
Chairman Hunter Gets There, Notwith
standing a Hot Fight.
PETER WALTER, JR., ALSO WMS
The liveliest primary elections ever held
in Allegheny occurred yesterday and were
attended by many surprises. "Sure win
ners," as some candidates were alleged to
be, discovered that they did not have a
ghost of a show when the ballots were
counted. Charles "W. Gerwig, formerly
of the County Controller's office, a promi
nent Grand Army man and a candidate who
always won, and almost always led the
ticket, was defeated as nominee for Common
Council in the Third ward. Eight men
were nominated, and Mr. Gerwig was the
ninth on the ticket, lacking 29 votes of
''Primaries were held in the Second Third
and Fourth wards, and never before in the
history of the city was such interest taken
in them. At the suggestion meetings,
places to receive the returns were designated,
and an order was issued that no re
turns be read until all were in. This was
evidently done to prevent holding back re
turns in certain districts and "fixing" them
in the interest of certain candidates. The
order was not obeyed strictly, and some an
nouncements were made, but the definite
result of the election cannot be given.
The headquarters for the Second ward
were in the Health Office, and Delinquent
Tax Collector Sam Grier was in charge,
with Water Assessor Barton Grubbs as his
assistant The office was
CROWDED WITH RESIDENTS
of the ward, and It was almost an impossi
bility to obtain standing room in the corri
dor of City Hall. The, Third ward head
quarters were in 'Squire McNulty's office,
and ex-City Solicitor William B. Eodgers
was in charge. The Fourth ward returns
were received at the lower sehoolhonse by
Street Commissioner "William Meese.
They were so slow coming in 'that
two" districts were still out at midnight,
but the persons who held the official count
would not announce the vote until all the
districts were represented. Unofficial re
turns were received at all places, butthe
only correct returns received at midnight
were in the Third ward, where the result
was as follows:
Select Council (one to nominate) H. D.Ren
wick, 236; Wo. Wettaeh, 222; K. Wcrtheimer,
480. Common Council (eieht to nominate! J.
G. Ebbert, SOS; John Datt, 670; R. L. Thompson,
711; C. W. Gerwig. 6S5:H. Stockman. 717; Theo.
Stricpeke, Sr., 718; B. F. Rynd, 709: Wm. Swin
dell. 871; T. C. Harbison, 802; C. W. Simon, 788;
J. H. Eback, 272,
When the result was announced it was
received with howls of delight by the per
sons whose friends had "got in," while the
dissatisfied people quietly walked away.
The saloons in that vicinity did a good
business during the evening.
The "reformers" in the Second ward
spent a great deal of money to defeat Chair
man James Hunter, of the Common branch
of Councils, while another clique, composed
of different olasses. tried to elect, and prob
ably succeeded, George J. Parkin to the
vacant seat in Select Council.
TOE PENNSY BEHIND IIIM.
Mr. Parkin is the foreman at the outer
depot shops, and was backed by many of
the workingmen in the ward, a number of
politicians and backed also, it is said, by
the Pennsylvania Railroad Company.
Henry C. Lowe, a -young business man.
who has never been in politics before, was
Parkin's opponent, and may be declared the
winner. The vote at midnight, with the
Seventh and Ninth districts to hear from,
stood as follows: Lowe, 605; Parkin, 531.
The Ninth district is Mr. Parkin's home,
and is always the last to bo turned in. This
may change the result Following are the
returns for Common Council, with the two
districts named left out: .
Common Council (nine to nominate) Will
iam A. Cruitshank, 871: William J. McDonald,
815; Frank Curry, 769; Simon Drum. 717; Thos.
A. Parke, 719; Jamos Hunter. 711; David Win
ters. 655: John MoKirdv. 653: James 8. Rsll
022; Jams P. Grogg, G32; Henry H. Bueule,
697; J. L. Miller. 579.
It is likely that the first nine names men
tioned will be the nominees. "William A.
Ford and Lewis McMulIen were nominated
for School Directors; John L. Gullets' for
Poor Director, and probably John T. Bagen
In the Fourth ward the returns from all
but the Sixth, Seventh and Tenth districts
were received with the following result:
Select Council William M. Kennedy, 369;
W. K. Fried, 226. Common Council, seven to
elect William Barter. 5; Peter Walter, Jr.
381; John W. Stacy. 367; TJ. H. Stouffer. 851;
John Vogler. 843; 1L C. Robison, 8S1; Hiram
Landis, 303; Jacob Ehmann, 299; David Martin,
255: John H. Short, 252; Andrew Lyle, 221;
James W. Prescott, 178.
The first six named will undoubtedly be
elected and there will be a fight between
Landis and Ehmann for the seventh place.

The Mayor of the City Admits That tbe
City Slide TJgJy Mistakes In the Amos-
kens; Engine Award.
Mayor McCallin yesterday' filed his sepa
rate answer to the bill in equity filed by H.
E. Safford against the Board of Awards, in
the matter of letting the fire- engine con
tracts. After admitting the .facts as set
forth in a number of the paragraphs of the
bill, Mayor McCallin says:
I admit that the effect of the specifications
was to exclude bidders, aa charged in para
graph 6) of plaintiff's bill; but I bad nothing
to do with the preparation of the specifica
tions, and therefore have no knowledge as to
whether they were drawn with the intention of
producing that result or not. ,
1 admit that said contract had not been fully
executed at the time the bill in this case was
filed: but I am informed and believe that, after
the bill had been filed and a restraining order
granted, the same was approved by the Select
Councils of the city of Pittsburg, baying pre.
vlously been approved by the Common Council
of said city. I do not know whether it has yet
been signed by J, O. Brown, Chief of the De
partment of Publio Safety.
I admit that tho prico at which the Contract
for said engines was awarded to the Manchester
Locomotive Worksis exorbitant. I voted against
saw awara. Because, alter a inu ana careim
investigation,! ascertained that the Manches
ter Locomotive Works had charged the city of
Pittsburg more for engines purchased by it
than had beon charged to other cities for the
same class and grade ot engines, and also that
the endues manufactured bv the comtxtlnt-
companies were superiorto those manufactured
by the Manchester Locomotive Works, aud
could bo boutcbt for less money.
I was not consulted in regard to the proposi
tion for a test, made in the name ot the De
partment of Awards, and had no knowledge of
it until after It had been Submitted to the
Mayor McCallin also admits that the
price to be paid to the Manchester Locomo
tive "Works (?3,000)is much greater than
the bids of Clapp & Jones and La France
companies, for engines of the same require
ments, corresponding to the specifications;
that the engines of the two latter companies
were to be equal, if not superior, in every
particular to the Amoskeag; and that there
was no money appropriated for the payment
of the engines, but that the; were to be
paid for out of the sinking fund. The
Mayor believes to be true the paragraphs of
the bill which set forth that the boiler of
the Amoskeag engine is a flue and not a
tubular boiler as required by the specifi
cations, and for this reason the contract
should bo set aside; that a tubular boiler is
superior in every respect to a flue boiler;
that there was a guarantee given by tho
Clapp & Jones Company, as to the per
formance of their engines, but that no such
guarantee was given by the Manchester
Company; and that Clapp & Jones invited
the Board of Awards to visit their works
and inspect their engines.
NO GAS Iff CALIFORNIA.
The Inventor of Wntcr Gns Tells
Wesilnghouse Missed it.
Prof. S. C. Low, the inventor of water
gas, was on the Limited last night, bonnd
Mr. Low stated that ho had sold out the
use of his process to the United Gas and
Improvement Company. He reserved the
country west of the Rocky Mountains and
a few places in the United States, but the
balance he granted to this country. West
ingbouse opened up negotiations with him,
but before they wero closed the other con
cern stepped in and secured the plum.
Now Mr. Westinghouse is dickering with
this company, so the professor savs. to se
cure certain privileges which he could have
had originally from the inventor.
Professor Low is going to manufacture
fuel gas out of California oil through the
aid of his water gas process. He says ne has
tried, and met with success. He has also
secured concessions from Mexico to make
fuel gas there in the same manner. Asphal
tum has been found in the country, and
this is always a precursor of oil. A com
pany has bcehlormcd to bore for it In
answer to a qnestion he said:
I don't believe there is natural gas in Califor
nia. All the gas has been lost in remote ages
through the violent volcanic eruDtions, I think
it is useless for Mr. Ashburner to spend his
time locating w ells there.
AN ARCHITECTS' EXHIBITION

The Architects Society of Western Penn
sylvania held their regular meeting in their
rooms on tho seventh floor of the Penn

Mrs. Mary Doran, who resides on Forbes
street, Soho, attempted to commit suicide
yesterday afternoon, by jumping into the
Monongahela river, in the neighborhood of

vide for his family.
The woman took her two children with
her and left them standing on the river bank
while she attemptedself-destruction. Officer
Welsh took the woman out of the river aud

THE MAYOR SPEAKS
At a Citizens' Meeting in the Sixth
Ward, on the local Issue,
BEFOBE AVERT WARM AUDIENCE.
McCallin Again Calls Attention to That Be
port to Councils.
NUMEEOUS OTHER SPEECHES MADB
The citizens of the Sixth ward, who are
Indorsing Thomas Mclfichael for Select
Council in opposition to James Williams,
the regular Republican candidate, had an
other rousing meeting last night at Buck's
Sail. There were about 200 people in the
place, and enthusiasm manifested itself to
such an extentlhat nearly everybody seemed
to be bnbbling over.
All wanted to make speeches. In fact,
oratory seemed to be infeetious among -the
people. Even Mayor McCallin, who is
generally a quiet gentleman, and more of a
listener than a talker,had something to say.
It is a well-understood fact thai the
Mayor, although he lives in the Seventh
ward, has takerfa great interest in the Sixth
ward Councilmanie contest, and ho is try
ing, with everything in his power, to defeat
Mr. ,C. W. Helmold, the Chairman,
called the meeting to order at about 8
o'clock and requested the committees of the
different precincts in the ward to make their
reports as to the outlook for next Tuesday.
SHE COMMITTEES BESPONDED
cheerfully, and in the most sanguine terms
assured their hearers that McMichael would
undoubtedly be elected.
The Chairman thereupon asked whether
anyone In the meeting would like to make
The answer to this request came from
half a dozen men at once. Everybody
seemed anxious to talk. There was first Mr.
McCaffrey, who expressed his opinion of the
forthcoming election in very emphatlo
terms, closing his remarks with the assur
ance that he was sure they were on the
winning side of the fence this time.
He was succeeded by Mr. Schaefer, a
carrier of the Times; Mr. Harry Newlin,
Mr. Chris Hess, Reuben Lewis, of the Sixth
"Ward Colored Club, and Mr. James Elinn.
All of them spoke in about the same strain.
While these discussions were going on,
Mayor McCallin had quietly made his ap
pearance. But no sooner was his presence
noticed than a general demand was made to
have him say something. For a long time
he modestly refused. Being pressed very
hard, however, the Mayor at last assented to
say a word or two anyhow.
"WHAT THE MATOE SAID.
"Gentlemen," he began, "I am indeed
more than pleased to notice the
general feeling of enthusiasm that
is prevailing among the people
of the Sixth ward. Prom the number of
people I see before me, and judging by the
remarks from the gentlemen who spoke just
now, I think that you have every reason to
be sure of success. We, in the Seventh
ward, are doing jnst as you are. We are
working hard, and we have also the same
gronnds to feel certain that we will elect
our man. We have all had enough of the
prevailing political methods. The citi
zens are getting tired of having to
pay the heavy salaries for an army of
officers who don't do tbe work they ought.
Gentlemen, I don't want to say much. In
fact it is not neoessary that I should. My
sentiments in this fight are well known. I
gave my opinion a few days ago in my
message to Councils and I feel sure that
every honest citizen, who has the welfare of
our city at heart, will concur with me in
every statement I made."
The Mayor retired under vigorous and
enthusiastic applause, and the meeting ad
journed with lusty hurrahs for McCallin,
and a tiger for McMichael.
The speech is reported at second hand.
The Mayor, when asked about it subse
quently, preferred to say that he had only
excused himself as "no speech-maker."
