THE PITTSBURG- DISPATCH, HNTAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1889.
f
A KATIOML WOMAN,
Bright Belva A. Lockwood, Objects
to Bain in Pittsburg, and Then
KEVEETS TO WIDER SUBJECTS.
She Will Attend the Universal Teace Union
to be Held in Paris.
PI10H1BITI0U STEOXGLT INDORSED
"Can you show me the way to The Dis
PATcn -writing rooms?" asked a quiet
voiced lady on Fifth avenue last evening.
It was just growing dark, but still daylight
enough remained to show her to be short
and stout, with a bright face surmounted by
white hair and a low-plumed cap.
"Certainly, madam."
"Thank you. I always like to -walk with
a nice looking young man."
The young fellow rallied from the shock
beautifully; bat aiasl his gallantry got
clean away with his good sense. "And I,
madam, always like to talk to a nice look
ing old ladj 1"
The chunk of silence that intervened was
only broken by the soft splat, splatter of her
rubbers, and the steady plunt of his num
ber nines.
There was a1 dreary drizzle on, but she
carried no umbrella, and her seal coat
looked as if it had been combed the wrong
way. At the street crossing she gathered
ier skirts in both hands, smiled sweetly at
the big policeman and was on the other
side before the amazed gripman conld even
Teach for the gong.
IT MIGHT BE WOESE.
"Is there anything," she queried, turn
ing a handsome face toward her "guide,"
who could scarcely keep within hearing
distance, "is there anything more disagrees
able, or unpleasant, than a rainy day in
Pittsburc?" Then she continued thought
fully, "Yes, there is something even more
disagreeable, and ihat is a rainy day in a
country town, surrounded by people who
have no ideas to exchange and look upon a
public character as a public show."
Arrived at the office the lady was asked
whom was to be announced as the visitor,
and the quick reply, "Belva A. Lock
wood," so confused her attendant that he
murmured his thanks and something about
the honor of the affair, as if she had invited
him to dinner or suggested that he be her
manager for a new course ot lectures.
Belva Lockwood's talk then was at once
delightful and instructive, and with a run
ning fire of comment!! and opinions, she
told something of her plans and intentions.
She is lecturing at present and doesn't
feel inclined to give that field up, as it has
become such a great part and parcel of her
life. Her talks to several hundred people,
however, have not spoiled her one whit for
conversation with a single ordinary mortal,
who had been taught to shudder at the
thought of a strong-minded woman, but
now found it the easiest thing in the world
to listen to a woman whose name and ideas .
are national.
Her present lecture course lasts for two
months longer, when she will take a rest
preparatory to a foreign tour. "When asked
what she thought, and what she was going
to do in regard to the prohibition agitation
now going on, her answer was peculiar to
terse f.
"Prohibition" Of course I will talk pro
hibition. "Why, I talked prohibition long
before that party was born, and I am talk
ing it still.
"I haven't been invited yet," she contin
ued, "though I think I shall lecture for the
Amendment Association. It is hard to say
anything new in regard to the liquor trade,
but I have some ideas I would like to, and
expect to ventilate iroin the lecture plat
lorm." PEACE OIT EABTH.
As Miss Xiockwood is known to be the
bead and front of the Universal Peace
Union, the first question upon that score
seemed a happy one, and she opened up at
once.
"This idea of Peace Union," said she, "is
at once beautiful and sensible. We want
arbitration, not war; sense, not force of
arms; brotherly love and mutual interests,
not bickerings and reprisals.
"Now you can easily see the sense of the
idea. War does not settle anything except
iorthe time being. The principle still
remains. "War is simply barbarism, a relic
of the davs when might was right. Here is
the idea in a nutshell. Suppose you owned
a house, and I wanted it. I am bigger than
yon, and lick you.thus acquiring the house.
Now is that right? It is war, however. A
gunboat is noargument A shell is no rea
son. Dynamite and bombs do not consti
tute the eternal principle of right, and war
muM; become a thing of the past. "We
should be too dignified to indulge in petty
pquabbles in reeard to the fishery question.
"We should not talk of war over bamoa or
Hayti, but we should amicably settle all
such questions by arbitration.
"lam going to Pans to attend the Uni
versal Peace Congress, to be held there dur
ing theExposition.They are making elaborate
preparations there for the reception of dele
gates from all over the world, and I expect
to meet a couple of bright French women
who have taken up the work there, though
most of the delegates will be men. After
this, I will attend the Peace Commission in
Geneva; so that altogether I shall have
quite a bnsy and interesting summer of it.
Meanwhile," concluded Miss Belra, smil
ing comfortably, "I will continue my lec
tures. I will remain here over Sunday,
and will talk to the Millerstown folks on
2Ionday; then down through the Ohio
towns."
0P1UJ1 OP K0 ATAIL
To Sylvia StUwell, Who Tried to Shuffle Off
With It.
Sylvia SlilwelL a colored girl living at
No. 158 "Water street, received a package of
opium from a friend in Ohio yesterday
morning, and about noon swallowed a large
chunk of the deadly gum, probably not less
than 21 grains, supposing the original
amount to have been one anda half drachms;
the residue weighing 59 grains.
About 6 o'clock in the evening, the other
inmates of the house becoming alarmed,
broke open the door of her room and found
her in a stupor, from which they could not
arouse her.
Dr. Marshall, of Second avenue, was
called in, and, alter administering the
proper antidotes, aided by vigorous flagella
tions to the soles of her leet by two sturdy
assistants, succeeded in .restoring her to
consciousness and a realization of the fact
that her attempt to shuffle off had been
thwarted.
AT DEATH'S D00E.
Mr. John C. Smith Stricken Down, With
paralysis or the Heart.
Mr. John C. Smith, who has been the
doorkeeper of the Criminal Court for many
years, is lying seriously ill at his home in
Ingram with paralysis ot the heart.
Mr. Smith came to Pittsburg from Greens
burg in 1829, and is one of the oldest and
most respected citizens of the city. His
two sons, Percy F. Smith andE, D. Smith,
have won distinction in journalism and the
railroad business. The former isjjow an
editor, and the latter Division Passenger
agent of the B.&O.
Mr. Smith is now almost 80 years old, and
during the County Centennial hit reminis
cences of the early city were read with
interest. Last night he was not expected
to live.
.A SERIOUS CUTTING AFFRAY.
Four Workmen Attacked by nigbwarmen
and Mike Cnvnnaugh Slabbed, It la
Tboncht Fatally.
A stabbing aflray which may result fa
tally occurred between Hatfield and Harri
son streets on Forty-eighth street, last night.
Mike Cavanaugh was stabbed three times in
the left side, below the heart, it is thought
fatally, and others slightly cut.
From the story as learned by a Dispatch
reporter last night, it seems that John E.
"Welch, who keeps a boarding house on
Forty-ninth street, Luke "Welch, Mike
Cavanaugh and Thomas Summerly, early
in the evening left John Stark's
barber shop on Butler street, and, on their
way home about 7:30, went into Jackson's
saloon, at the corner of Forty-eighth and
Harrison streets. Each took a glass or two
of beer, except Cavanaugh, who "does not
drink," but took a couple of classes of cider.
As they left the saloon and were near
Plum alley they were accosted by a fellow
named Date Donnelly and a companion,
afterward thought to be a certain
Hoonan. One said: "I never knew
an Irishman to be hard up yet. Give
us 10 cents." This led to words, and
Hoonan .finally grappled Cavanaugh, and
Donnelly crappled one of the others. Final
ly. John "Welch went, as he said, "to bring
Cavanaugh home." when it is alleged that
Hoonan pulled out a big dirk and stabbed
Cavanaugh in the left side three times, and
then ran.
Summerly, who was grappling with Don
nelly, was also slightly stabbed in the fore
head. Dr. Sheedy, who attended Cavanaugh,
said the wounds were serious, and he could
not tell yet how it may result.
About 11 o'clock the police arrived on the
scene, and it is thought they can easily
apprehend the parties who did the cutting.
Cavanaugh is a man of about 30, who works
in a mill.
A MASTER AWARDS $73,000.
A Climax Reached In the Famonn Old Ull
cation for a Settlement in the Firm of
McClure & McClrary.
One of the most important cases, and one
of local interest both in Pittsburg and Mc
Keesport, is that of McCleary .versus Mc
Clure, in which James Cook, Esq., of Pitts
burg, the master, on Friday awarded to
McCleary the sum of $73,000. The case is
one in which C. E. Stuckslager, assignee of
John"W. MeCleary, of McKeesport, through
his attorney, W. S. Patterson, Esq., brought
suit against A. M. McClare for settlement
in 1879, and the large amount involved in
connection with the long litigation follow
ing the action, renders the proceeding all the
more interesting.
The point reached through the award of
the master means that a final conclusion is
close at hand.
For 19 years prior to the time the action
was brought, McClare & McCleary com
posed a wealthy, prosperous and widely
known lumber and sawmill firm, doing
business at McKeesporl, and owned the ex
tensive and valuable Bed Bank timber land
ot Jefferson county, and in all those years
thev never had a settlement. Just prior to
1879 McCleary assigned to C. B. Stuck
slager, cashier of the People's BaJk of
that place, and A. M. McClure assigned to
W. I. Gillesnie. of Pittshnrp: James E.
Patterson, ot McKeesport, and Andrew Mc
Clure.
Stuckslager brought suit to recover
McCleary's interest in the Bed Bank
property. He lost the case, and had to pay
$800 costs, but hung on, and brought suit
in 1879 for a settlement. Joseph Cook was
appointed master in the case by the Court,
and, on account of his ill health, James
Cook, Esq., was substituted. The case
then dragged along until lour months
since, when the last testimony was taken,
and was followed by the award of the
master Friday. The testimony, or report,
of the master is voluminous, there being 75
pages of it. April 1 is the limit of the
time allowed to file exceptions in the case,
when it will be argued before Judge Stowe.
It is then probable that it will go to the
Supreme Court. The McCleary side of
the case are confident of receiving $40,000
or $50,000, and probably the full $73,000.
A KOTABLE DECISION,
Judge Stowe Sustained After Ten Yearn'
Reversion Tito Limit to Damages by
Loss of Life Knocked Out.
A Supreme Court decision has been given
that reverses a former decision of the
Supreme Court, sustains Judge Stowe after
reversing him ten years ago, and revokes
an act of Assembly.
It provides, also, that the amount of
damages recoverable from corporations for
injuries resulting in death shall not be
limited by law. Heretofore the maximum
was $5,000. The case in which the decision
was rendered was an appeal by the Penn
sylvania Bailroad from a decision that gave
a woman $14,500 damages for the death of
her husband on account of alleged negli
gence. The act of 1SG8 limits the amount
to $5,000, while the State Constitution of
1861 provides that no act of the General
Assembly shall limit the amount.
This clause of the Constitution first came
up in connection with the act ot 18C8 in the
case of Langdon versus Pennsylvania Kail
road before Judge Stowe, and" over $5,000
was awarded. The case went to the Su
preme Court, where he was reversed.
The two cases were exactly similar, but
Judge Paxson in the latter reverses himself
and his opinion of ten years ago. In his re
marks Paxson said his views had undergone
serions change. He said the fact that the
company was chartered under the act of
1868 did not form a contract with the
State, as no consideration was paid for it
It was merely an additional franchise.
He said the act was repealed by the pro
visions of the Constitution, and concludes
with: "I .nake no -apology for my change of
views. Had I adhered to those formerly
expressed there might haye been occasion
for one."
The opinion is a great surprise to all the
lawyers of the State, and will have a power
ful bearing upon future suits against rail
road companies for damages for a death or
injuries.
DOWN ON SECTARIANISM:.
The General Pnrade Committee, Jr. O, V.
A. M., DUconraees a Rellclona Tnrnonf.
At a meeting of the General Parade Com
mittee of the Jr. O. TJ. A. M.,held last even
ing at the Moorhead building, the following
preamble and resolutions were unanimously
adopted:
Whereas, This General Committee, con
sisting of members from the Councils of the
Jr. O. U. A. M. interested in the Wash
ington's Birthday parade. In view of
the fact that there has appeared
in ono or two citv papers articles tend
ing to draw the Jr. O. U. A. M. into a religious
controversy, and recognizing the fact that any
sectarian subjects are forbidden introduction
or discussion at any meeting of our order, and
erratically denying that we have atany meet
ing of our committee questioned the rfclit of
any man or body of men to observe in a patri
otic manner the birthday anniversary of the
honored ana revered wasnington; De it
Resolved, That we deprecate the fact that
ay sectarian issues are Deinc forced into this
matter, and that we regret that any religions
denomination has seen fit to parade on that dy
as a distinctively sectarian body, thus endeav
oring to force sec.arianism Into what has hith
erto been a purely patriotic demonstration.
Resolved, That we do not dispute tbeir right
in this land of liberty to parade, so long as tbey
do not Interfere with the public peace or the
liberty of others, and do not display anv other
nags than the Stars and Stripes of the Unfled
btatcs of America, the one country that grants
to all law-abiding residents absolute civil and
Teligious liberty.

TALK ABOUT FRAUDS.
How Some Candidates in Allegheny
Explain Their Defeat.
A LIVELY CONTEST IS EXPECTED.
The Primaries in Pitsbnr Wards, Also
field Last Evening,
LESS EXCITING THAN THE NOBTHSIDE'S
The game of politics is always an excit
ing one to those who are holding the cards,
and who never seem to know just what is
"trump" until after the primary or regular
election has been held. This is true of the
primaries that yielded their last political
shuffle last evening; and it is true, perhaps,
to an increased degree, Pittsburg's half
dozen caucuses most of them equivalent to
election and Allegheny's veritable strug
gles for supremacy are reported below, the
latter getting precedence because they wera
more closely contested.
The cry of fraud at the close of P.epub
lican primary elections in Allegheny has
not been heard for years, but yesterday
there were a number of candidates and their
friends making strong assertions in that
direction. Several men announced
publicly in the City Hall that some people
would be arrested for perjury before many
days. The city building was crowded last
night with friends of defeated candidates
and tneir friends, and the charges made
against the people who had anything to do
with their defeat would fill a big book.
The returns from the Ninth district of the
Second ward, it is said, looks like a war
map, and an effort will be made to throw it
out The only alteration in the returns as
announced yesterday, if the district is
counted, will be to elect Buente over Win
ters for Common Council by 4 votes.
WHAT THE COUST HOWS.
The count in this district was made at 2
o'clock and given to ex-Mayor Wyman,
who brought it down to the Health Office,
where Delinquent Tax Collector Grier was
figuring up the result This count showed
the following result, which, it is claimed, is
correct:
Select Council, one to elect Henry C. Lowe,
810; Georco J. Parkin, 717. Common Council,
nine to elect Crulkshanks, 1.231; McDonald,
1,127; Curry, 1,074; Parke. 1,032; Drum, 891;
Hunter, 962; JIcKirdy. 920: Bell, 903; Winters,
895; Buente, S93: Gregg, 877; Miller, 710; 11c
Hendry. 3S5; Palenbach, 267.
For School Directors Messrs. Ford and
McMullen were chosen, and for Constable
three different returns were received, but
the one that will likely be counted is as fol
lows: Lang, 552; Kynd, 549; Jiagen, 519.
This was the closest fight in the ward, and
Bagen may contest on account of the re
turns received from the Ninth district
When the returns from the Ninth were
received, it is stated, a bottle of ink had
been upset on the sheet and some of the
numbers are illegible. Several of the marks'
show (so the persons who saw the sheet
state), that four votes were counted five,
and, in some instances, six votes were
counted five. This will not affect the result
as stated, except in the case of Winters and
Buente'for Common Council, and, possibly,
in the constabulary-contest.
A very determined and successful effort
was made in the Third ward to defeat
Charles W. Gerwig, the reason- given being
that he worked against the awarding of the
electric light contract to the Westingbouse
Company. Mr. Gerwig was only defeated,
however, by a few votes.
HOW HE ACCOUNTS FOB IT.
His defeat is accounted for in this way:
When the suggestion meeting was held each
candidate gave $3 toward the fund for print
ing the tickets. These tickets were not dis
tributed in some districts, but in their
place were tickets that did not
have Mr. Gerwig's name printed
on them. The proper tickets were
not distributed in some districts until
6 o'clock, an hour before the polls closed.
Mr. Gerwig appeared at City Hall last night
and seemed in good humor. He said: "I
have been a candidate for 13 years at almost
every election held, and never was defeated
in mv life before. There is a man that
helped to do me up," -and he pointed to
Bobert D. McGonnigle, of the "Westing
house Electric Company. Mr. McGonnigle
did not denv it, and the two chatted pleas
antly together as if nothing had happened.
It was stated, later in the evening, that
Mr. Gerwig would be a candidate on the
Citizens' ticket on Tuesday, and show some
people "where they are wrong." This re
port, however, could not be confirmed.
The complete returns from the Fourth
ward were not received until yesterday.
They show that "William Bader did what
has never been done before in a close ward
contest He received almost every vote
cast The official result is as follows:
Select Council William M. Kennedy, 631;
W. K. Fried, 459. Common Council, seven to
elect William Bader, 9S5; John W. Stacv. 776;
U. H. Stouffer. 673: P. Walter, Jr., Col: Jacob
Ehman, 615; John Vogler, 391: H. C. Robison,
57S: Hiram Landis. 513; John H. Short oil;
David Martin, 426; Andrew Lysle, 421; James
W. Prescott, 2SL
NOT A KICKEK.
This defeats Hiram Landis, one of the
oldest Councilmen in the city. He said
last night that he had been fairly defeated,
although the vote was close, and he did not
propose to make a contest.
The Republican primary in, the Fifth
ward was held last evening, and the result
was as follows:
Select Council, James H. Lindsay, no oppo
sition; Common Council (five to elect) Adam
Amnion, 6S0: George I. Rudolf, 61S; Charles W.
Dablinger. 632; Charles W. Ifehthill. 513: J. It.
Wolfe, 479: Charles V. Lewis, 412; R. W.
Fisher. 353: W. C. Cooke, 261.
Tne first named are, therefore, elected;
bnt Mr. Lewis disnutes thecountand claims
he is the fifth man on the ticket
j.ne uemocrauc primary m me mu
Ward resulted as follows:

cil. Louis Gcrber and M. McCarthj. '
The citizens of the Third ward met last
night and nominated the following ticket:
Select Council, E. Wertheimer; Common
Council, Theb. Sriepeke, Sr., Lorenz Laut
ner, GeorgeJ. Lacher.
C0BA0P0LIS HARM0HT.
A Very Large Dose of It nt tho Suggestion
Mcelinc Held Lnst Evening Only Can
ons With a Brass Band.
There was exceeding great harmony in
Coraopolis last night It wasn't exactly of
the kind of which Dryden sang, and from
which he said this "universal fratnebegan,"
but it was equally effective, a more-than-2-to-1
kind. Mr. Alfred McCabe presided,
and the occasion was a primary meeting to
nominate borough officers. -
It soon became apparent that there were
incongrnous elements in the meeting, and
the majority, with a horror of , the "sniooth-ing-board"
methods which, gave the death
blow to the political aspirations of Jimmy
Hickey, decided to give the smooth-bore a
stab under the fifth rib, by passing a reso
lution, two or more to one, that anyone
might nominate himself if he chose, and
that all the names should be printed and
voters take their choice of names on the
ticket, a method which insures a vast
amount of scratching and will lorce the Re
turning Board to earn its money. ,
As though this weren't sufficient har
mony for one day, the meeting adjourned to
lively music, the Coraopolis brass band
playing "Marching Through Georgia" apd
other lively airs. It was a politic move,
for though the musio might not altogether
soothe the savage breasts of the disap
pointed, it at least drowned their discprd
ant mutterings. It isn't every primary' or
suggestion meeting that can afford the lux
urv of a brass band.
The main part of the ticket -nominated
was: For burgess. Dr. W. S. Bamsey;
council. D. K. Jolly. Samuel Marshall.
f Jeremiah Curry and J. D. Hamilton; jus
tice of the peace, aquire d. jr. Derree and
A. Matchett
The band hadn't blown itself out when
the express train thundered up to the sta
tion. THE TWESTY-THIED'S TUSSLE,
Dr.
Evans, Select Councilman, Gets There
Agnin nt Iho Primary.
In the Twenty-third ward, Dr. C. Evans,
the present Select Councilman, defeated his
oppnent, Joseph C. Eckley, by 40 votes...
There was an unusually heavy vote polled,
and a strong effort was made to defeat Dr.
Evans. In the First, or lower precinct, it
was thought he would receive a majority of
the votes cast; but instead, he was snowed
under there to the tune of 149 to 41.
Dr." Evans voted and fought against the
city charter and the firemen and other city
employes in the ward voted against him.
In the Second, or middle, "district Evans re
ceived 172 votes, while his opponent cot but
64. In the Third precinct hs got 66, while
Eckley received but 26. The majorities re
ceived by Evans in the two latter precincts
enabled him to overcome the large'vote
against him in the First.
Evans has represented his ward in Coun
cils about 15 years. If he had not received
the nomination last night, his friends say
they would nave run him as a Citizens'
candidate.
The Democrats of the ward met last night
in the schoolhouse and nominated for Select
Council W. E. Tustin; Assessor, Joseph
Connelly; School Directors, .Andrew Whit
taker and John Neelan.

The Republicans Object to an Alleged Con
federate Candidate.
The Bepublicans of the Eleventh ward
met in the schoolhouse and indorsed H. P.

tions consisting of George Fleming, Joseph
Brown and David W. Semple made the tol
lowing report: -
Wheeeas, The information has come to the
citizens ot the Eleventh ward that George
Schmidt, the candidate for Select Council on
the citizens' ticket has at times stated that he
had served in the Confederate army, and the
said statement has been verified by reputable
citizens of the ward; therefore,
Resolved, That in view of the above facts we
deem it but just to the voters of the ward. tha$
the information bo known that they be able to
vote intelligently at the coming election next
Tuesday.
WHEN PARTISANS PALL OUT.
The Prohibitionists or Versailles Township
Tnke Heart Again.
There is a red-hot fight in Versailles
township over the amendment, and the out
look is good for prohibition. The Bepubli
cans and Democrats are split up, and the
Prohibitionists are taking advantage of it
to push a steady canvass.
Old politicians of the township say that
the amendment will carry with a good ma
jority. PIT! THE CONSUMER.
How the Cry for Chcnpt Necessities Has
Resulted In Wholesale Adulteration
Some Frightful Examples.
Some apologists for adulteration of food
and drink products lay the blame for it to
the rage for cheap goods, which, they say,
has taken possession ot the majority of peo
ple, and to such an extent that it is difficult
for an honest dealer to made a living in
trade; and they argue that the average man
cannot be expected to develop sufficient vir
tue to deliver him at all times from tempta
tion. In theory, the law. presumes that,
where there is a wrong there is a remedy
also, and if this is so in all ca'ses, nerve
ought to be sufficient to discover and apply
it. Doubtless adulteration has been prac
ticed ..from a very early period, but this
country did not suffer very materially from
it until a period within 30 years.
In 1858 sugars cost very nearly twice as
much as they do now; but glucose wasn't
in the market sugars were sweet then.
Textile fabrics were dearer then than now;
but they were generally honestly made, and
buyers gained in wear what they lost in
cost, and more too, for less tailoring was re
quired. The high price of coffee during the
war led to its adulteration, and people who
ceased to buy the green berry and roast it
for themselves, were subsequently sickened
by the suggestion that the ground abomina
tion they were using contained not only
chicory root, but also horse liver roasted,
said liver generally having been taken
from horse's that have died of old age or dis
ease. Much tea was popularly supposed to
be used once and then put through some
process that restored its color, and then
mfced with the fresh article and resold.
These are samples of the general adultera
tion bred by high prices.
But meantime adulteration Itad become a
science, and in order to continue the reali
zation of enormous profits, as prices de
clined, it became the refuge of scoundrels
who refused to content themselves with old
time profits. They doubtless reasoned that
they had at least a shadow of excuse from
the fact that adulteration had become gen
eral, and if a man who adulterated railway
stocks, etc., with water could be held to be
a gentleman and a benefactor, why not a
man who mixed acid and sulphate of lime
and made thereof cream of tartar? It is
true the watering of railway stocks did not
directly destroy people's stomachs, but the
step from one grade of rascality to another
lower, is easy.
In relation to the subject of food adultera
tions Mr. Flood, of Arbuckle & Co., said
yesterday that there .were a number of firms
in New York who did nothing else but
manufacture adulterations. They sell pepper
and ginger per pound cheaper than itcan be
bought in its unprepared state. Xn the case
of pepper Mr. Flood would advise people to
grind the grains.
He cites a case where whisky was sold in
Ohio for SI 60 per callon when the tax was
52. The adulteration of candy has been
largely reduced in the past few years.
Resisted Arrest.
Julius Metzgar, a scissors grinder, ac

INTERVIEWS WITH THOSE WHO KNOW
The Messiah Baptist contrregation of
Lawrenceville (Bev. F. K. Scully's charge)
were again thrown into no little excitement
yesterday, over the sudden disappearance
of their pastor, the ex-priest; nothing hav
ing been seen or heard of him since last
Wednesday night until the receipt of a tele
gram from him yesterday afternoon dated
Philadelphia, stating that he would not be
back for a week, and to get someone to fill
his pulpit
His landlady stated to a Dispatch re
porter that he had sold his furniture
Wednesday, stating that he was going
TO BOOM DOWN TOW1T
for a time, and would then go on a visit to
his mother, who is sick near New Orleans,
and that if anyone wanted to see him, such
person could find him at the hall in the
evening.
Mr. White, one of the official members of
the church, said: "He had very little to
say at the meeting Wednesday night. He
said he expected to visit his mother in New
Orleans soon, but did not state when, and,
before he left, said : 'If nothing happens to
me, I will preach next Sunday morning and
evening.'
"He had $57 that had been contributed to
purchase a lot, "but some of his congregation
were suspicious that he was going away, and
requested him to give it up, which he did.
The church gave him the proceeds of the
fair, nearly $300. I don't think there is any
thing wrong; but his going away so sudden
ly, without letting any one know, looks bad.
I am now endeavoring to see a man who
knows the condition of
TIIE CHUBCH FINANCES,
and if I hear nothing more from Bev. F. B.
Scully by Tuesday or Wednesday, may give
you a good item."
Mr. Thomas Montgomery, who was Mr.
Scully's backer in his late trouble, and
purchased the furniture now sold, nas next
seen and at first said that Bev. F.B. Scully
had gone to New Orleans on a visit, but
later stated that he was now in the East on
a business trip of his own, as he proposed
entering a new calling, and would visit
different points before going to New Orleans.
Mr. Montgomery would not state the
nature of the supposed new occupation, but
said Mr.' Scully was going to write a letter
for publication, and send it to him to give
to the papers, explaining his action, and
that he would probably be back here again
in three weeks.
HOW GKEELT WAS FOUND.
The Story Entertainingly Told by Iiicuten.
ant Hnrlow nt the Press Club.
Members of the Press Club and invited
guests were richly entertained for an hour
or more at the club rooms yesterday after
noon. Lieutenant Harlow, of the United
States Navy, at the solicitation of some of
his newspaper friends, gave an informal
talk concerning the adventures and experi
ences of the Greely relief party in the Arc
tic region. The Lieutenant is a most inter
esting and agreeable conversationalist and
his descriptions of the scenes that he had
witnessed, tne dangers mat tne party en
countered and the habits of the strange peo
ple of the North were all exceedingly
graphic. He exhibited hundreds of photo
graphs, taken by himself while on the expe
dition, which gave a better idea than any
language could of the widely different sub
jects with which his narrative dealt
The story was spiced here and there with
anecdotes and enlivened by descriptions of
personal adventures, many of them of an
amusing nature. The oft-told story of the
Ceding of Greely and the six other famish
ing survivors, as repeated bv the man who
bore such a conspicuous part in.the rescue,
was exceedingly touching and impressive.
At the close of his remarks Lieutenant
Harlow. was voted the thanks of the club,
and a first rate lunch was then served to all
present.
CALLING LANGST0N A FOOL.
Fred Douglass Says it Won't Do to Fat a
Colored Man ia tho Cabinet.
Fred Douglass passed through the city last
night en route to Washington He had
been making addresses in Arkansas. Mr.
Douglass said:
I am personally acquainted with General
Harrison, but 1 have not visited him since he
was elected. 1 believe in (riving a man time to
write his messaee. John M. Langston paid his
respects to tho President the other day. Lang
ston has conceit enough to think he is as smart
as John Sherman, and he wants to go into the
Cabinet. He is all for langston and nobody
else. It was ho that lost the State of Virginia
for the Republicans.
The colored people used tq be modest It
requires a man with marked ability to fill a
Cabinet position. My people should educate
themselves first in statecraft before they
assume to be statesmen. Langston is a fool it
he thinks he can discharge the duties of a Cab
inet officer. The colored class is only a small
proportion of the population, and they haven't
any more right to make demands of such a
high character as a class than the Irish or
Germans. It is a great mistake. There will
not be a colored man in the Cabinet
I think it is settled that Mr. Blaine has been
offered the position of Secretary of State, but
I hopo ho will decline. I would like to see Mr.
Harrison the central nguie in tho administra
tion. Blaine has too large a following, and in
the end it would injure bis standing.
ART AND ACTORS.

hold an inquest to-day.

A COMPLETE WRECK.
The Grand tnko Coal Company's Fallnre as
Bad as Conld Be Hints of Unsecured
Creditors Who May Suffer.
Mr. Joseph B. Williams, the head of the
defunct Grand Lake Coal Company, is
completely unnerved by the firm's failure.
He spent yesterday at his home in Sewick
ley. All the members of the firm are hard
working men, and their credit in Pittsburg
was good. A gentleman remarked yester
day that thev could have borrowed 1,000,
000 if they wanted it
The members of the company are com
pletely ruined financially. They have lost
the fruits of years of hard work. There are
also a number of unsecured creditors that
cannot hope to realize a cent.
The public preferred creditors of the com
pany are W. N. Bobbins & Co. and John
Shoup&Co. They will lose little or noth
ing in the wreck, but Bobert Gumbert, a
coal operator, may be affected. About four
days ago the Joe Williams, at Louisville,
was mortgaged for $20,000 to I. D. Eisher.
It is understood that a levy will also be
made on this boat in a few days.
The company's troubles began with the
building of the Montour Bailroad. They
spent and lost a large amount in its con
struction. The road proved a failure and
left them in the lurch.
The company then entered the great coal
pool known as the Pittsburg and. Southern
Coal Company. Coal to the amount of
400,000 belonging to the pool was sunk at
New Orleans last fall, and the Grand Lake
Company lost in that disaster one-seventh
of the amount, or over $50,000. Said a
riverman yesterday:
It cannot be denied that the big steamer J.
B. Will-airs was a failure. There was never
enough work for the boat to do. It is capable
of towing 1,000.000 bushels of coal; but it was
found to be too largo to work in tho up nvcr.
I am willing to bet that the rich nvcr coal
operators are not as wealthy to-day as they
were 15 years ago. They have been losing
money for a long time, and there are actually
no profits to be made in the business. The
minersgetall tho money there Is in the trade.
They are not willing to work for less; but the
timo is coming when they will have to, or be
out of employment Natural gas has really
helped the coal business for the river men.
Their markets are more remote than they used
to be, but the prices have kept up.
MAI BE A HITCH.
Some Talk Abort the Amalgamated Associa
tion Scnlo for This Year.
The delegates to the next Amalgamated
Association Convention, which will be held
here in June, will bo elected next month,
and they will be instructed as to what
wages are desired by the iron workers. At
this convention the annual scale for iron
and steel workers will be drawn up, and
there will likely be a hitch this time.
A member of a labor organization, in
speaking of the outlook for the settlement of
the wage question, said:
The Amalgamated Association will not h.ivn
as plain sailing as before. Singer, Nimick ft
Co. are running full and are turning out good
work, but their men have no connection with
the Amalgamated Association. Tne Solar Iron
Works, the Black Diamond Steel Works and
Dilwortb, Porter & Co., are all non-union con
cerns, and there will likely be a big fight before
a scale is adopted, and many of the iron men
will try to operate their mills without a scale.
They seem to be willing to pay tho prices de
manded, but are opposed to some of the ob
jectionable rules by the Amalgamated Asso
ciation. '
Several members of the organization who
were seen believe that the present scale, if
presented, will be signed and no trouble is
expected.
D. A. 3 in Good Shape.
Master Workman I. N. Boss, of D. A. 3.

1623, a mixed local, at Kittanning. Mr.
Boss says the order is growing, and he be
lieves D. A. 3 will have more members than
ever before the next annual meeting is held.
The Selling- Price of Coal.
The Pittsbvrgh Bailroad coal operators,
who attended the meeting of the Shippers'
Association in Cleveland, returned yester
day. They say that nothing special was
done, and an adjourned meeting will be
held in Chicago next Thursday. At this
meeting the selling price for the coming sea
son will be fixed.
Wngcs Must Come Down.
At the next meeting of the Coal Ex
change, composed of river operators, next
Friday, a committee will be appointed to
hold 'a conference with a miners' commit
tee on the rate to be paid this season. They
claim that it will be impossible to pay the
3-cent rate, as the price of coal in the lower
market is lower than ever before.
Death In the River.
The dead body of Michael Toole was
found at 5 o'clock last evening on the banks
of the Monongahela river, below the Brad
dock Wire Mill, at Braddock. There were
no marks of violence on the body. There
mains were taken to Williams' undertaking
rooms, in Homestead. Toole was about 35
years of age and a metal breaker at the
Homestead Steel Works.

THEIKOW CASTINGS.
The Westinghonse Interests May
Start Another Industry
TO BE LOCATED AT WLDERMING.
It is Not let Decided Whether They WH1
LeaTe Allegheny.
A DEED FOR OYER 31 ACRES OF LAND
The Penn Fuel Gas and Electrical En
gineering Company have about decided to
build a foundry and machine shop of their
own at Wilmerding, on the Pennsylvania
Bailroad. This will be near the works of
the Westinehouse Airbrake Company, and
it is very probable that all of Westing
house's enterprises will be moved to the new
little town springing up near Turtle Creek.
On Monday last the deed for the purchase
of an immense tract of land which
wquld more than be enough
for everything " Mr. Westingbouse
is connected with, was filed in the Kecord
er's office in this city. The entry of the
transfer is to the effect that the Westing
house Airbrake Company purchased a
tract of land in North Versailles township
containing 31 and 805-1,000 acres for ?90,
000. The Fuel Gas Company, of which Mr.
Westingbouse is president, got their cast
ings, cocks, gates, etc., from the Gas City
Manufacturing Company. This company
also
SUPPLIES THE PHILADELPHIA COMPANX
with castings. Most of their output goes to
the latter company. The demand for the cast
ings has become so great that the Westing
house people will manufacture their own,
and save a great amount of money by the
operation. "When the company builds the
foundry for the manufacture of castings for
their pipes it will have aa employment ca
pacity of several hundred men.
The Westinghonse Airbrake Company
have not yet decided whether they will va
cate their works in Allegheny or not, when
they open the new shops at Wilderming. At
first it was the intention that as soon as the
new works were built the shops in Alleghe
ny would be devoted" to other purposes.
A number of schemes have been suggest
ed for the old shops. It was rumored that
the company knowing they could sell the
property for a fancy figure would dispose of
it. Other schemes were to the effect that
Mr. Westinghonse would use the buildings
for some of his new enterprises which arc
continually bobbing np. It is stated that
the treatment of the Westinghonse Com
pany in the awarding of the electric light
contract in Allegheny has naturally made
the company not very particular whether
the city get any benefit from their existence
or not. At that time no attempt was made
by the officials of the company to conceal
THEXE CHAGRIN.
They said that they distributed hundreds
of thousands of dollars in Allegheny City
every year, and when they came to bid on a
contract they were ruthlessly shoved aside
for some foreign company that never did the
city a cent's worth of good.
The new airbrake buildings at Wilder
ming will not be completed until the latter
part of the summer. The company now
does not expect to do any work in the shops
until September. There has been no brick
work done yet on the machine shop, and the
stone work on the foundry has not yet been
completed. The boiler house and black
smith shop are not quite finished yet, either.
As soon as the weather will permit the
work will be pushed to completion.
When the snops are opened it is expected
that the majority of the men now living in
Allegheny will move to the new town. The
company will erect a number ot dwelling
houses lor the occupancy of their employes.

A Creditable Institution.
Mr. Simon, formerly of Pittsburg, now of
McKeesport, has lately finished a large
and fine brick building on Jerome street,
colled the McKeesport National Sanatorium.
It contains Turkish, Russian, electric, mas
sage, needle, domestic and swimming baths.
The physicians of McKeesport are recom
mending the establishment as a cure for
many diseases, and a good thing to help
healthy people to keep healthy. Many
travelers from the East have visited the
place and found it as complete an institu
tion as there is in the country. A number
of Pittsburg people are visiting this place
regularly, deriving much benefit therefrom.
The sanatorium has a good Pittsburg trade,
and to further accomodate this trade, Mr.
Simon has secured tickets from the B. & O.
B. B. Co., good for passage to and from
McKeesport, which are presented free to
all purchasers of tickets for the Sanatorium.
