County Constitutional Amendment
ites Besolve, and Raise $5,000.
A DAI OP EARNEST EXPRESSION,
In Which One Speaker Wanted an Amlu
lance for the Cowards.
BOW THE WOEK WILL BE FORWAEDED
That was a great convention of Allegheny
county .Constitutional amendmentites yes
terday. Its chief session in Lafayette Hall
was the one in thetafternoon, whereat abont
$5,000 in campaign contributions were real
ized, resolutions were adopted, and the serv
ices of au ambulance to remove the cowards
The afternoon session was opened at 2
o'clock with prayer. Eev. Mr. Norcross
was then called upon and made a short bnt
happy address. He was glad to see the
women present, as it was a most hopeful
sign The present convention was but a
starter for the giand movement, and they
proposed to carry Allegheny county, not
withstanding the tact that Pittsburg was in
it. He said work was needed, and every
body must put their shoulders to the wheel.
He was particularly interested in the labor
vote, which he characterized as "a large
and honorable body." The speaker dwelt
on the fact that the late war had saved the
flag and treed the slave; but there was an
other thing accomplished, and that was that
it broke up an unbalancing labor system,
and now, if they can turn in and save the
$300,000,000 annually spent in liquor, they
would make kings and priests of the labor
The Committee on Finance reported,
recommending that a subscription list be
opened, giving all the delegates present an
opportunity to contribute for campaign pur
poses, and indorsed Mr. H. Sampson as
Treasurer. They also recommended that
further financial measures be left for a per
manent committee that would be appointed.
The report of the committee was accepted.
HE WA2TTED XO COWAEDS.
Eev. J. T. Eiley, who was among the
delegates, was called on for a speech, and
responded as follows:
We are entering upon one of the mightiest
conflicts this State has ever been engaged in,
and we should do our duty. The thing that
will be flaunted in our faces is personal rights.
I hae heard it already, and my answer to that
was, if the; are not jroing to prove themselves
law-abiding citizens, they can move out of the
country, and the sooner they go the better. I
don't believe any man has a right to engage in
a business that Mill make unprofitable and un
loyal citizens. A man said to me the otherday:
"1 rent my property to saloons, and in that way
1 have got to live." Now the cood Lord knows
that inau don't need to live. There was a great
furore raised somejrears ago about keeping a
standing army of 2a,(X)0 men. Thcv said it was
a standing menace to the country. Yet we
keep a standing army of 8,000,000
paupers. Why, we can afford to
pay every saloon keener $2,500 per
ear and furnish him with a horse and carriage
or his family. Yes, we can; but I am not one
of the kind that will do that. The children of
this great Republic and State are crying out
for deliverance. Will we give it to theniT We
must. I would that the good Lord wonld send
an ambulance down and take all the cowards
home! Then we would have a lair field and a
liev. Mr. Boyle, Chairman of the Co m
mittee on Resolutions, reported the follow
ing: The Legislature of the State has passed a
resolution to submit to the voters of the State,
at an election to be held on the 18th of June
next, an article to be added to the Constitution
of the State forever prohibiting within this
Commonwealth the manufacture and sale and
keeping for sale bf any intoxicating liquors to
be used as a beverage. Therefore, we the peo
ple of Allegheny county, in convention assem
bled, accept with profound satisfaction the op-
jiuiLuuuj ui joining wnn our ieuow-citizens
throughout our State in meeting at the ballot
box and in a constitutional manner the foe
which has so long menaced the best interests of
the Slate, and is standing as a barrier in the
way of every effort for the material, moral and
spiritual elevation cf the people.
GIVING WAY TO THE GREATER.
We approach the subject without the desire
to do injury to the business interests of any
man; but we declare that the individual inter
ests of men must give way to the greater in
terests of the people of the State,
who are thereby injured, directly and
indirectly, to an untold and aire ex
tent. And we mention wherein they are in
jured by that business: In the home, in the
growing youth, in the matured man, in so
ciety, in elections, in legislation, in the safety
of life, in the protection of property, in the
criminal courts, in the workhouses, in the
penitentiaries, in the asvlums. in the taxes, in
mc uucui; ui men in omciai ana trust posi
tions, in the perpetuity of physical aud mental
strength in our race, in our local, city, county,
State and national governments.
We declare it to be the duty of every voter
who seeks the good of his fellow men not only to
cast his vote for that which tends to destroy a
great and growing evil, but to exert his influ
ence to secure the co-operation of all others.
We all agree that the liquor traffic is an evil
of gigantic proportions, and utterly void of any
Weiejoice that the representatives of all
political parties and temperance organizations
are so harmoniously uniting to support this
Constitutional amendment, to which" we col
lectively and individually pledge our earnest
and persistent efforts.
We call attention to the able articles of Judge
Acnew on the Constitutional amendment, and
we recommend the very general circulation of
these articles among the people, as well calcu
lated to put the whole matter before the people
In its true light
JUDGE AGKEW'S CO-OPERATION;
Chairman "Weeks read a letter from Judge
Agnew, regretting nis inability to be pres
ent at the meeting, but stating that he
"would work with his pen for the good cause.
j.ne letter was received with applause.
The Committee on Organization-, through
its Chairman, John D.Bailey, recommended
that the Chairman appoint three persons in
each ward, borough and township, and have
them form an executive committee for their
wards, etc., to meet once a week and
make a thorough canvass ol their districts,
seeing personally each voter; also that a
convention of these delegates be held on the
second Thursday in March to report what is
being done and elect officers.
This report gave rise to a great deal of
discussion. Dr. L X. Hays wanted the
Executive Committee appointed right away
so they could get to work, particularly in
Allegheny City, as he thought they would
carry that town. Half a dozen delegates
wanted to tack an amendment to the report.
After a hall hour's discussion the report was
amended to read that a committee of five be
appointed to assist the Chairman in the
work of selecting names in each ward, and
It was then adopted. Chairman "Weeks
named Eev. T. 2f. Boyle, Mrs. Ellen M.
Watson, A. H. Leslie, Captain J. K. Bar
bour and J. A. McConnell as his assistants.
Mr. H. Sampson, who was called on for a
speech, responded by saying thatmonev was
wanted, and very badly at that; and'as a
starter he wonld be one of ten to give $500
for general campaign expenses.
. HOW IT STIRRED THEM UP.
Eev. Mr. Boyle took the floor and urged
the delegates to contribute, and a com
mittee was sent on the floor to solicit sub
scriptions. The result was as follows:
J. R. Johnson, of Verona, subscribed $500.

There was a very large number of 10 and
and 25 dollar subscriptions; making the
total subscription nearly $5,000.
Eev. Mr. Campbell moved that a com-.
mittee of three be appointed to select ten
delegates at large to represent Allegheny
couuty at the Harrisburg convention on
Tuesday next. This was carried, and the
chair appointed Eev. Mr. Campbell, J. D.
Baily and Eev. I. X. Hays. This commit
tee was to report in the evening. Eev. T.
N. Boyle, chairman of the Committee on
Resolutions, reported the following resolu
tion, which was unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That we rejoice in the position
taken by the Hon. T. V. Powderly on the Con
stitutional amendment, and wo earnestly com
mend his words to the people as well as to all
the workingmen of Allegheny county.
After a motion had been adopted for every
delegate to set to work immediately and
create all the enthusiasm possible, the con
vention took a recess.
THE MORNING SESSION.
Officers Are Chosen and Several Commit
Eev. Dr. Samuel Collins called the con
vention to order in the morning. Dr. T. XT.
Boyle was chosen Temporary Chairman. A
committee of ten was appointed to choose
permanent officers. A long discussion en
sued on the question of enrolling delegates.
It was finally decided to seat everybody who

Canned Goods Manufacturers Are Talking

CHICAGO, February 15. The Convention
Hall in the Sherman House this morning
rang with shouts of approval when E. S.
Judge, of Baltimore, recommended that the
Western Packers' Canned Goods Associa

of the Baltimore Trade, a journal devoted
to the corn canning industry. He said:

The Work of a Farmers' Institute Held in

'BFECTAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1
WASHllfGTOir,PA.,Februaryl5. A farm
ers' institute, held nnder the anspices of the
Pennsylvania State Board of Agriculture,
was convened in the Court House at 1030
A. m. to-day by Hon. John McDowell, the
resident member of the board. The inten
tion to devote the whole of the day session
to the discussion of the road question wan
The committee appointed by the "Western
Pennsylvania Agricultural Association,
consisting of John C. McNary, Julius
Clark, Hon. John G. Clark, James S. For
sythe and James B. Maxwell, presented a
recommendation as to a general road law.
It provides for the election of three County
Road Commissioners, one of whom
shonld be a practical engineer,
whose duty it should be to lay out
all new roads or change tiie location
of old ones, locate bridges, award damages,
and perform all duties now required of
viewers appointed by the court. One shall
be elected lor a term of three years, one for
two years and one for one year, and at each
succeeding election one shall be chosen for
three years. In case of appeal from action
of the Board of Viewers, the cause of com
plaint mast be distinctly set before the
court; and the judgat his discretion may
instruct the Board of Viewers, and direct a
review of the same, and such review shall
be final. These commissioners would re
ceive S3 a day for time actually employed.
The township supervisors shall be elected
under the same conditions as above. It
will be the duty of said supervisors to meet
on the first Monday of March succeeding
their election, or as soon thereafter as may
be agreed upon, and proceed to levy a tax
upon the property holders, on the basis of
valnation made by the assessors of the
several townships of the Common
wealth, for other taxes; not to exceed
five mills on each dollar of valuation.
It will be the duty of the Board of Super
visors to divide their respective townships
into three equal districts, or as near equal
as is practical, and each one shall have
management of one of said districts, or they
may select one of their number to supervise
the whole township or any part thereof.
One-third of all the taxes collected shall be
used in macadamizing portions of road.
The County Commissioners shall pay out of
the county treasury 1 a rod for each rod of
road on which four perches of broken lime
stone has been placed, no payment to be
made unless 20 consecutive rods.'shall have
been so macadamized. The township shall
not be held for damages unless the super
visors shall have received three days' no
tice that a portion of the road is unsate.
In the discussion of the recommendation
and of papers presented by Hon. John G.
Clark, Julius LeMoyne and J. C. McKary,
it was the universal expression that road
taxes should be paid in money. It was also
conceded that it was impracticable to mac-
caaamize ail tne roads.
Hon. James S. Stocking, who introduced
a road law the present session, was present
and made an address on the road question.
He pledged himself to work for any bill
which the institute might recommend.
M. H. Boreland, J. C. McNully, J. P.
Miller, "W. H. Dague and J. D. McNary
were added to the committee. The whole
committee is to make anyamendment to the
act recommended that may seem desirable
after the discussion of to-day and report to
the institute to-morrow.

SHOULD ALWAYS MAKE IT A "POINT" TO VISIT 4
HANDSOME AND SPACIOUS
All things considered, you cannot spend a more profitable or
pleasant hour than a call at and a leisure stroll through these vast
Cloak Parlors. Why? The reason is plain. First Courteous
salesmen and obliging salesladies are always ready to "showyoo
through," whether you wish to buy or not Second Kaufmanns',
being the only house in Western Pennsylvania sending its buyer3 to
the European markets, always show the latest styles from London,
the "Haute Nouveaute's"' from Paris and the "Neuesten Moden"
from Berlin fully two (often three and four) weeks in advance of
any other house in Pittsburg or Allegheny. Third Kaufmanns' as
sortment is the largest in the city by big odds; to tell the truth,
they show more goods in one corner of their grand Cloak Depart
ment than the entire stocks of the very houses which daily fill the
advertising columns of the newspapers with loud claims and noisy
pretentions. Fourth Kaufmanns' are the Pioneers and Champions
of the Ladies' tailor-made garments system, and there isn't a
woman in the land who doesn't prefer the superior fit and make of
the tailor-made article. Fifth Kaufmanns' prices are invariably
the lowest in the city.
These five reasons we ask every thinking woman in both cities
to- consider. "Be sure you're right, then go ahead" and buy. We
have just unpacked
NOVELTIES in INFANTS' SLIPS and DRESSES
We have them from 19c up. Beautiful white arid colored Dresses
for 296. Very handsome Dresses in flannels, basket cloths and
cashmeres, also white batiste and Hamburg embroidery trimmed
Dresses at 79c, 98c and upward. Infants' white and colored em
broidered cashmere robes, very fine, for $1 75. Infants' Capes, with
quilted satin facings, all colors, at $1. Children's cashmere and
jersey Dresses, up to size. 12, puffed sleeves, yokes, Mother Hubbard
styles, etc., all imagineable new colors and shades, from $$ up.
Look! 300 Infants' white embroidered Caps will go at 12c each.
