PITTSBURG DISPATCH, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY IT, . 1889.-;
HEADY FOR A CHANGE
Beal Estate Men Who Believe That
-May Should Be Moving Month.
A SLY DIG AT AP1UL FOOLISHNESS,
With Some Good Seasons Why a Month
Later Would Be Better.
QUAETEELI COLLECTION IDEA STEONG.
Fittsburg moves on April 1, not because
it is All Fools Day. nor because Pitts
burgers are all fools, but possibly, because
there is just a little bit more old fogyisru in
the composition of our people than is abso
lutely necessary to make a well-balanced
judgment Ex-Mayor Henry A. Weaver
states that the day was fixed in the time of
Edward IT., and that, and that alone, is
probably the reason we adhere so tenacious
ly to a custom which should have no bind
ing force in cities where agricultural opera
tions are not carried on. Even in Phila
delphia, which in 1708 was divided
into 1,000 and 5,000 acre lots, and
might have been styled an agricultural city,
the people do not icel compelled to move on
April 1, but take any time that is mutually
convenient. "Ve are greatly wedded to the
past in some respects and still keep alive
customs that were once salutary and even
indispensable, but which are now absurd.
For instance: "We are informed that certain
instruments of writing must be given under
seal or they are not binding, and further.
that there is a vast amount of solemnity at
tending the making of a seal, though it is
usually a very common kind of a scrawl
a character that the man who signs his
name with an "X" "his mark," can make
as well, if not so elegantly, as the most a
complished writing teacher.
LIKE THE ATEIL FOOL.
Those who do not know the origin of the
rise of a seal, and are curious enough to in
quire, will see at a glance that its mainten
ance, though perhaps not injurious, is
absurd, but not more so than the custom of
moving on April 1.
It is related that Gnatimozin smiled while
lying on a bed of hot coals, and compared it
to one of roses. He probably had in mind
the adage that every rose has its thorn. A
lady commenting on his painful end re
marks that "never housewife notable smiled
on a rainy washing day," and she might
have added that none ever smiled on a.
blustry moving day in early April, nnlcss it
be one of that restless class of femininity
that reorganizes the position of furniture at
intervals solely for love of change. Some of
this class can endure more than man, if it
brings with it change.
All the real estate dealers and agents,
save one, lound in their offices yesterday,
were in favor of pushing moving day further
along into the season. Mr. G. H. Love
thought the weather alone ought to be suf
ficient reason for the change. He said that
in some cities they got along well enough
without having any special time for moving,
as they rented bv the month. He thought
the monthly plan vou!d work well here
when business was brisk, but that in dull
times it might cause considerable loss, as
manv people when out of employment
woufd leave houses vacant. The only ob
jection Mr. Love could think of that might
arise would be that some people might be
inclined to insist that rents should be paid
along with the regular quarterly settle
ments. READY TOE THE CHANGE.'
Mr. John AV. Herron was in favor of the
change to May 1, as in every respect more
satisfactorv than the present time. He said
Philadelphia got along well without any
special time, and his plan broke the monop
oly of professional movers, who, on moving
day, are able to turn up their noses even
at plumbers. Mr. Bums "V. Herron coin
cided with his brother's views.
Mr. Beckwith, of Cooper & Beckwith,
was equivocallvin favor of a change of date.
Messrs. Berfnger & Son were in favor of
the change, and without any mental reserva
tions. Mr. S. "W. Black was heartily in favor of
the change, as it is now settled beyond a
doubtbythe experience of all semi-centenarians
that wmtei prolongs his stay fullv a
month longer than hedid 40 vearsago. Yere
the time changed, tenants would be better
able to suit themselves also.
Black & Baird are in favor of a change,
and will co-operate with a movement to
make leases 13 months in order to bring
about regularity subsequently.
Ex-Mavor Henry A. "Weaver and! his
partner, Mr. Marshall, were both favorable
to the change. Mr. "Weaver stated that
April 1 was originally fixed to accommo
date the agricultural interest in the time of
Edward IV., when there wasn't any other
industrial interest to speak of. And the
date was made with reference to the plant
ing of spring crops. There is no reason
why the custom should apply in cities.
Mr. George Johnston was in favor of
change, and didn't consider it necessary to
give any reason, as, he said, the advantage
was patent to anyone who had ever moved
in bad weather.
Mr. James Dickson favored the idea, and
thought the saving in the matter of health
was a sufficient argument in its lavor.
Mr. V. W. McNeill, of McNeill & Bro.,
said the entire trouble would be gotten over
in the first year, and that persons could buy
property to better advantage when the
weather had settled so as to show just what
it was at its best
Mr. Ailes, of Alles & Campbell, favored
the change, and withont any mental reserva
Mr. S. J. Fleming agreed with the ma
jority, and for similar reasons.
Mr. Lyon, of Graebing & Lyon, thought
the gain to health ought of itself to be suf
ficient reason for the change.
Mr. L M. PennocK refused.to talk, say
ing he hadn't time, but added: "Of course
I am in favor of a change."
A gentleman in Mellon Bros, bank said
there wasn't any donbt they would prefer
May 1 to April 1.
Mr. John F. Baxter was also one who
did not see any room for argument, and
added that the reform could be accom
plished with bat little effort, if the agencies
would combine for the purpose, and exert
their logic on both landlord and tenant.
The last place visited was that of Dixon
&Co. Here only was the proposition op.
posed. The gentleman who spoke for the
firm said he could see no benefit to be de
rived, and thought the change would be dis
organizing. THE QUARTERLY LOGIC
The opposition "here manifested consists
olelyin the detachment of rent payment
from the regular quarterly settlement day,
but this, as suggested by many dealers,
might be an advantage, as frequently fam
ilies find enough trouble to make other
quarterly settlements, and were the rent
quarter shoved a month ahead it might be
provided against more easily, and many
. pay monthly anyhow.
Those who may have scruples on account
of prescription may get a grain of comfort
from John SeTden who in the days of James
the First and of Charles the First edified
people by his Table Talk. Scldcn says:
"Twas the custom of the Jews (if the year
did not tall out right, but that it was dirty
for the people to come up to Jerusalem at
the feast of the Passover, or that their corn
was not ripe for their first fruits), to inter
calate a month and so to have, as it were,
two February's, thrusting up the year still
higher, March into April s place, April
into May's place, etc, whereupon it is im
possible for us to know when our Savior
was"born, or when He died.
E. G. Hats & Co., have just sold 37
pianos to the employes of Westinghouse Air
Brake Works; this is the largest order ever
placed in the city.
A GANNON BALL MINE.
Tho Surprising Discovery of a Sewer Con
tractor In Sknnk Hollow History of ilio
Aloat Modern Sort Impugned.
Mr. Evan Jones has found iron mine in
Skunk Hollow. He lound it while exca
vating for a sewer in that classic vale, and
it is manufactured iron. When one bf the
workmen urned out a somewhat corroded
cannon ball there was a suspension of work
while the matter could be debated. No an
tiquarians being in the party; the discussion
was fruitless, save as a stimulant to study,
and the matter might have gone into obliv
ion again had it not been that, from time to
time, more balls were unearthed, until Mr.
Jones found himself in possession of a large
quantity of iron. r
Then it was supposed there might
have been a battle there, and history was
ransacked in hopes of finding some account
of "ambition's honored fools" murdering
each other to advance the claims of the
Houses of Hanover and Orleans, but to no
Old timers recollected that they had heard
that the arsenal was established in that
vicinity in 1615, and that its establishment
was still a matter of neighborhood gossip in
their youthful days; but they had never
beard that its testing ground was in Skunk
Mr. Devlin, who has charge of the ceme
tery in the neighborhood, conld not recol
lect of hearing of any cannonading in that
section, nor could ruins of any fort be
found. As the balls were all found within
the compass of CO feet, some of them tightly
wedged between the slate strata, it was
thought by some that the fire had been con
centrated, as though a fort were the
Ex-Mayor Weaver destrovs the historical
romance by stating that Kuapp & Wade
there tested their Columhiads, made about
the opening of our late civil war.
The fact that incidents that made a great
noise less than thirty years ago and were
talked of by the entire country, are already
forgotten by the'mass of the generation that
participated in them, seems to indicate that
all history is but little more than the indis
tinct recollection of a dream.
TEMPEEANCE AT THE BIJOU.
The First of a Series of Meetings Itnn by
Local Good Templars.
To-night the Independent Order of Good
Templars open their fight in this section for
the prohibition- amendment, with a mass
meeting at the Bijou Theater. The princi

sin, the lecturer for the Grand Lodge of
Pennsylvania. An address will also be

There is no economy in using inferior and
so-called cheap baking preparations. It
would be well for the economical and
prudent housewife to count the cost and final
expense in the use of an inferior baking
powder and compare the difi'erent results,
which are largely in favor of the high test
pure cream tartar powder. The Banner
Powder is composed of 99 per cent pure
crystal cream tartar, giving it the most
powerful leavening force, hence it always
does more and better work with a given
quantity ot flour than any other.

with valuable household information for
baking tea biscuit, rolls, muffins and all
kinds of fancy cakes; instructions for roast
ing meats, fish and fowl; for preparing
French and mayonnaise dressings, and mak

Than to Know What to do With?
YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO MISS
Will offer this week. They are in the store to speak for themselves and
the price tags on every article and garment offered speak far more elo
quently than anything that can' be said in cold type. They are silent
witnesses to what can be truly said to be the most sensational slaughter
of prices ever known.
We've Pushed Prices Down to a Point
That must meet with the approval and patronage of the poorest as well
as the richest person in the country.
THIS WEEK!!! IS THE WATCHWORD OF THE WISE!
THIS WEEK!!! IS THE BANNER OF THE PRUDENT!
The phenomenally low prices we're naming will find a responsive
chord in every bargain seeker's heart. Everything we offer is at a figure
which is a challenge to any or all other dealers of this city to come
within 25 per cent of it Every bargain we have for you is "catching"
enough to make a thousand people want the same thing..
IF YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR LOWEST PRICES,
NOW IS YOUR TIME, NOW!
You will find high standard value in everything but price. Now, don't
you pay any attention to what others advertise that is if they say
they undersell us. Don't spend a single dollar until you've
visited our store and convinced yourselves that you can
save big money by buying here. "Money talks" every
time and nowhere else will you find it go so far as
,.: with us this week.
