excitement on the top floor and the state of
affairs in the Mayor's office. That gentle,
man sat almost alone on the sofa
in his office; and he said little or nothing.
To a man who had been upstairs for half an
hour, an entrance to the Mayor's office
seemed like going from a wedding to a
funeral, and Ajax Jones' countenance pre
sented a very excellent resemblance to that
of the usual pall bearer.
The only man in the Mayor's wake who
looked rejoiced was Judge Brokaw.
"I wish it to be recorded," he said, "that
Murphy is elected in the Thirty-third ward'
and Mr. Sullivan is defeated. It was a per
sonal fight between him and me, and I have
"When the Mayor was asked what he had
to say about the election, he refused to be
interviewed. But he made several perti
nent remarks, which go to show what he
thought about the matter.
"The entire Department of Public Safety
has been electioneering to-day," he said.
"There are 94 officials living in the Sixth
ward alone, and they have hustled to-day
for all that was in them. That is where we
lost McMichael.
' "Even in the Seventh ward they were so
strong to-dav that at noon I had my donbts
whether Joe(Marshall, the Mayor's brother-in-law,)
would be elected, and now I am
ready to concede his defeat. They tried
everything and did everything to elect their
Another man in the Mayor's office stated
that O'Brien had been arrested in the First
ward, simply because he was a Cavanaugh
man. But when this gentleman was re
quested to give his name as authority for
what he said, he refused to do so.
It was also said in the Mayor's office that
John Aiken had been arrested at the Sev
enth ward polls for no reason whatever.
Chief Brown, in speaking of the election,
"Of course the results coming in from the
different wards are so satisfactory that it is
hardly necessary for me to say anything.
Regarding the general quietness of the
election day, I will say that the police had
especial orders to squelch any disorder,
wherever it should be. I ordered a number
of special men into the First and the Sev
enth wards simply because I supposed that,
inasmuch as the contests would be fiercest
there, a greater body of men would be re
quired to keep tbem in order."

Lively Hustlinc Around the Polls A Couple
of Candidates Roll in the Street
A Surprise for the Reform.
ers In bone Ports.
The election in Allegheny was one of the
most exciting Councilmanic contests ever
held.inthat city. The usual number of
wordy fights occurred and a very unusual
number of knockdowns.
In the First, Second and Fourth wards the
fight was a particularly bitter one. A
strong effort was made by the Reform party
to down the so-calied ringsters, viz: P.
Walter, Jr., and James Hunter, but in this
their efforts proved fruitless, as both won,
the former with hands down, and the latter
by a larger vote than even his friends ex
pected. Mr. Walter was seriously ill yes
terday and unable to leave his room. Com
modore Kountz, notwithstanding his age,
was as young as any of the hustlers in the
First district of the Second ward.
This in the first time in many years that
the Commodore has taken any part in poli
tics, and the cold weather did not seem to
affect him in the least. He'had young men
assisting him. Health Officer Bradley was
there, also, and did effective work lor Mr.
Hunter, but the Commodore's work for
Leggate, who was Hunter's rival, brought
him many votes.
A little scene occurred at this polling
place in the afternoon when Mr. Price, one
of the reformers, said to Bradley: "I know
what you fellows went down to Harrisburg
for." As Mr. Price does not belong to the
district he was promptly ordered away from
the polls. He met a similar fate when he
visited the Sixth district polling place.
A fignt occurred in the First ward, atthe
Fifth precinct polling place. A candidate
had fixed a ticket for a voter, and as he was
about to cast it, he was pulled back by the
brother of a candidate. The candidate or
dered him to let go, when the brother struck
him. The candidate then sailed in and
knocked the brother into the middle of the
street and then administered several kicks.
He was compelled to retire from the polls,
and did not appear again.
The returns came in slowly, as an un
usually heavy vote had been polled, but at
10:30 o'clock complete returns" had been re
ceived from the Filth and Seventh wards.
The result in the former is as follows:
Select Council, James S.. Lindsay, no op
position; Common Council, five to elect, Geo.
L Ehudolf, 612; Adam Ammon, C42;
Charles W. Dahlinger, 638; Charles W.
Lighthill, 577; J. B. Wolfe, 522; all Repub
licans and Charles Y. Lewis, Independent
candidate, 460. It will be remembered Mr.
Lewis was defeated at the primary on Sat
urday for the Republican nomina
tion by 27 vote, and believ
ing that "some crooked work had been
done, decided to run at the general election.
As will be seen by the above figures, he
lacked 62 votes of being the low man on the
The result in the Seventh ward is as fol
lows: Select Council, one to elect Charles
A. Muhlbronner, R., 419; Oliver Wick
line, 210; Common Council, G. J. Schon
delmever, B., 266; Frank L. Ober, D., 248;
Peter "L. Huckenstein, D., 166; Phillip
Peifer, K., 174; Charles Zoller, D., 47; John
A. Burger, P., 82; John M. Gareis, D., 53.
The first two named are elected. This is a
Democratic ward, but as there were several
representative men in that party, a Repub
lican was allowed to step in.
At midnight returns from the Eighth and
Fourth wards were received. No vote was
received of the lormer, but George Schad
was elected to Select Council over Theo
doie Hueskins, the present incumbent, and
Fred Wall. For Common Council A. C.
CI. mat ti v itop T"lrr A W -To ilr con "R tr
were elected over George Betteridge and
John Born.
In the Fourth ward the result was as fol
lows: Select Council, one to elect, two dis
tricts out William M. Kennedv, E., 782;
W. E. Fischer, 260; Common" Council,
seven to elect, all districts in "William
Bader, 866; John W. Stacy, 853; G. A.
Koehler, 845; U. H. Stanffer, 810; John
Vogler, 804; P. Walter, Jr., 710; H. C.
Eobison, 702; Jacob Ehman, 573. The
latter was one of the Republican nominees
and was defeated by G. A. Koehler, a
The resnlt in the Second ward was a sur
prise to the reformers. At midnight, with
only two districts to hear from, Hunter had
beaten their candidate by a 2 to 1 vote, and
it is said be leads in the districts that are not
in. In Hunter'sdistrict the vote was Hunter,
149; Leggate, 30. In Leggatc's district the
Vote was: Hunter, 59; Leggate, 50. The re
sult in 0 oi the 11 districts is as lollows: Se
lect Council, one to elect Henry C. Lowe,
8S4; Adam Funs, 357. Common Council,
nine to elect Curry, 1,109; Bell, 1,083;
Cruikshanks, 1,067; Drum, 1,022; Bnente,
1,017; McDonald, 064; Parke, 948; McKirdy,
873; Hunter, 839; Lcgtrate, the reform can
didate, 440.
No returns were received from the Ninth
ward, bnt the election is conceded to M.
Hannon for Select Council, over John
Getty, and Louis Gerber and M. McCarty
are chosen for Common Council. All are
The vote, in the Twelfth ward cannot be
given, but it was reported late last night
that Morris Einstein, the druggist, had de
feated Samuel Watson, the present Chair
man of the Finance Committee, by 47 votes.
It is stated that Mr. Einstein is ineligible,
as be is onlv 25 years of age, but his friends
say he was born 29 years ago.
The result in the First ward was not
known nntil nearly 1 o'clock, and it con
tained many surprises. John P. Milby,
who was defeated two years ago
by only seven votes, and was
considered a winner, lacked only
four votes of elepton. Dr. Charles W. Neeb",
who has been ill for several weeks and un
able to make a canvass, it was thought
would be away down low on the ticket, but
he only lacked three votes of leading. John
T. McAulev, a young business man, led the
Arthur Kennedy had a walk over for a
seat in Select Council, defeating Austin L.
Clark. The result of the Common Council
contest, lour to elect, is as follows: McAul
lev, 418; Neeb, 415; Patton, 371; Watson,
247; Pitcairn, 246; Milbv, 244: Koenig, 244;
Ferry, 186; McClurg, 123; Stern, 100. As
the election was so close it is thought that
Watson's seat may be contested by Messrs.
Milby, Koenig and Pitcairn.
The Republican ticket in the Third ward
went through practically without opposi
tion, although the two Democratic candi
dates, Messrs. Lattncr and Lacher, re
ceived a good vote. The winners
are: Select Council Emannel Wertlieimer;
Common Council Messrs. Swindell, Eb
hert, Harbison, Bynd, Simon, Stockman,
Thompson and Str'iepecke. Some of Chas.
w. lierwig s mends wanted mm to run
again but he refused. He received a num
ber of votes, however.
Complete returns had not been received
from the 'Sixth ward at 1 o'clock, butenough
were in to indicate the result, which is as
follows: Select Council Dr. E. H. Gilli
ford, no opposition; Common Council (six
to elect) C. Stelfen, Jr., Jesse McGary,
Fred. Stemler, Allan Knox, William
Thomas ?and A. Mercer, all Eepublicans.
Lee Frasher, one of the Democratic candi
dates, almost defeated Mercer.
In the Tenth ward, with one district to
hear from, Fred Emrich was elected to
Select Council, Arthur Hunter to Common
and a close fight between "W. W. Nesbitt
and Christ Deuel for second place.
No returns have been received from the
Eleventh ward and no prediction can be'
Only one district was in from the Thir
teenth ward at 1 o'clock, but the indications
are that J. P. Ober will lead Valentine
Gast for Select Council by a few votes.
George Lappe and A. J. Chambers or A. J.
Kirschner will fill the two seats alloted this
ward in the Common branch.
Elcht Men, Supposed to be Cavnnaagh
Voters, Run in by Captain Silvni.
During the afternoon there were eight
men arrested in the First ward. .Most of
tbem were supporters of Cavanaugh, and
the latter claimed the men we're run in to
prevent them from voting. One of them
was taken to the Twelfth ward station
house instead of the Central, but no reason
given by the police officials.
All ot tbein were released upon bonds
given by George Free and Joseph Fleming,
with the exception of Charles Hostetter and
John Smith, who were still behind the bars
at midnight. The names of the other men
were Elie McCray (colored), John King,
John O'Neal, Andrew Xyden, Michael Cor
nelius and William Carroll. Carroll was
charged with illegal voting, Smith with
carrying concealed weapons, and the others
were arrested for disorderly conduct. Cap
tain Silvus stated last night that they ex
pected the police department would be
blamed for antagonizing Cavanaugh by the
arrests, but there "was no sentiment in the
matter. The men had violated the law bv
creating disorder and he had ordered their
Men Against Whom Hot Fights Wcro
Wn&ed, but Who Won.
Alderman Cassidy is a triumphant win
ner in the First ward, though he not only
fought hard ior the honors, but had some of
the strongest political backers in the city.
The fight for Alderman in the Twelfth
ward resulted in the election of Joseph
Warner. The candidates were Joseph
Warner, E.; J. D. Drisco.!, D., and J. H.
Kobbs. I. Warner led all through, and
carriea the ward by 186 votes. Nobbs was
the low man.
In the Tenth ward John Burns was re
elected Alderman without opposition. C.
E. Succop ran the same way in the Twenty
eiehth ward.
Flach's majority over Burke in the
Twentv-fifth ward'was 44.
BonQrca Illuminate the Polls and Reveal
Some Snrprlses.
Large bonfires, even by daylight, desig
nated the polling places of the various
wards out along Penn avenue. These, in
conjunction with the amount of hustling
necessary to secure tardy voters, kept the
politicians warm enough all day. The
fight wasa quietbut determined one in many
ot these wards, but iu none of them were there
such contests as were witnessed in some of
the down town hill wards.
The vote was rather light till after the
factories closed for the day, when it ran up
very rapidly. The results were in many
cases surprising.
Set a Single SI en of Life in the County
Commissioners' Office.
At no place in the city was election day
more forcibly realized than at the County
Commissioners' office. Even the women
seemed to have forgotten to come and file
complaints of excessive assessment, and the
quiet was so intense that a pin could be
heard drop on the carpet in the private
One of the clerks said there was less busi
ness transacted than on any similar day,
not a holiday, in a year past.
Some of the Candidates Who Ilnd Every.
thine Their Own Way.
Out in the Twenty-third ward, where they
had a fierce primary fieht on Saturday, Dr.
C. Evans had so much of a walk-over that
no one thought it was necessary to report
the vote. In the Thirty-second ward, John
Paul had no opposition for Select Council,
and the same was true of John Collins in
the Thirty-fifth ward.
Down in the Second ward, Gus Marks
was the opponent of James Getty, but the
latter had things his own way.
Anderson Bad Abont 700 majority Over
His Opponent Brown.
In the Fourteenth ward John Anderson,
the regular Republican candidate for Select
Council, was elected by about 700 majority.
His opponent, William J. Brown, received
a minority vote in all the precincts with the
exception of the third, where he beat An
derson 20 votes. .
The school director elected (and on this
the fight concentrated) were William
Holmes and William McElroy, both of
whom had about 350 majority.
In the TrventySecond.
In the second distriot of the Twenty-second
ward the hottest fight was made for
Eegister-Assessor. J. Frank Sowash was
the ring candidate and L. H. Houghton
called on the old soldiers. At first it looked
doubtful for Sowash, but he hired eight car
riages and brought out his vote, defeating
hisopponent to the tune of 103 to 31.
Mcasrs. German, Slrntton nnd Jones Elected
to Connc'l.
The following was received late last night
from McKcesport:
The hottest political fight that has occurred
here in years took place to-day. It was expected
that an immense vote would be polled and
while a large vote was out, the extreme cold
weather prevented the result anticipated. The
local struggle was fierce, nevertheless, ana
there was little to give on the majorities. Jas.
H. McLure was elected Btrrgess and Jacob
Everett, Tax Collector. William German was
elected to Council in First ward. Daniel Strat
um was elected to Council in the Second and
Oliver G. Jones in the Third ward.

The K. of P. Pleasantly Celebrate the
Twenty-Fifth Anniversary
Pittsburg Lodges Spend the Evening at
Lafayette Hall.
Friendship's holy ties by hidden might
link the present with the past, the morrow
with to-day. Truth is ever with the right,
though falsehood may prevail. Four hun
dred years before the birth of Christ the
sponsors of the Knights of Pythias figured
in the incident which has to-day
made their names in the civil
ized world synonymous with friend
ship. Centuries afterward in a thriving
city on a continent to the founders un
known, the twenty-fifth anniversary of an
order whose principles are the same as gov
erned the lives of these men of Syracuse, :s
celebrated. The Knights of Pythias of the
"World last evening celebrated the twenty
fifth anniversary of the formation of the

audience, who had come to listen to the
pleasant entertainment held under the
auspices of the Fort Dnqnesne, Great 'West
ern, Iron City, Smoky City, Madoc, Mount
Sinai and Hazelwood'K. of P. lodges.
The programme t was very long, and was
opened with an overture. The audience
sang the opening ode, after which Rev. E.
R. Donehoo made an address -in which he
dwelt upon the blessings oi friendship and
charity. His remarks were enlivened by
several amusing anecdotes. The Manches
ter Quintet sang several selections during
the evening, and were always heartily wel
comed. Miss Edith Harris recited and
sang a solo during the course of the
evening's pleasures. Brother J. Cramni,
M. D., of Philadelphia, made a long ad
dress on "The Origin, Objects and Progress
of the Order," in which he related how the
order was formed a quarter of a century ago
in Washington, D. C. He gave a brief ac
count of the lives ot Damon and Pythias
and snoke rather bitterly ot a religious sect
which have in their church councils con
demned secret organizations. The benefits
of the order were spoken of bv him, and. in
conclusion, he advised all young men to
join the society.
Mr. J. F. Callahan and Miss Hattie Cook
recited selections. Miss Annie McCIure,
Mr. W. B. Lockhart nnd Miss A. M. Lewis
sang solos. The mandolin trio amused the
audience with their instrumental selections.
Bev. J. C. Morgan, of Conncllsville,
spoke upon "The Blessintrs of Secret Asso

Total Amount Received Nearly $200,000
Almost Enough to Complete the Main
Buildings Business Men to Ibe Front.
The fact that the Exposition affairs have
been somewhat quiet of late, does not show
inactrvity by any means.
On the contrary, the live members of the
board, with their canvassers, are meeting
with greater success every day, as the busi
ness people are gradually learning that the
superb buildings are reaching out toward
the sky at an amazing rate, and, to quote a
famous Frenchman, as ''nothing succeeds
like success," the more assured is this suc
cess, the faster do the subscriptions come in.
The total amount received is rapidly roll
ing up toward the round $200,000 (the exact
amount is $192,000), and at the present rate
but a few more weeks will complete the
necessary amount still needed for the finish
ing of the main buildings, some $30,000.
This amount is needed at once in order to
complete the main buildings" as rapidly as
possible, and the board politely requests
that all attention be given to Messrs. Gill
and Lupton when they call, as they surely
will, with their subscription books open
tor all.
The total amount collected last week was
was $2,200, showing the boom to be still on.
The roll of honor reads as follows: Life
managers, $100 each John S. Ferguson,
George N. Monroe, Henry McKnight,
Singer, Ninrck & Co. Lim., a second sub
scription; SUrn & Silverman, William S.
Prer, E. A. Beineman, Best, Fox & Co.,

nace, C. M. Bartburger, Lewis & Hyde,
Gust. B. Mihm,John McMahon and George
E. Beineman. The following loans were
also received: Bailey. Farrell & Co., $300,
making $1,000 from this firm, and J. S. and
W. S. Kuhn $100. The Lewis Foundry and

addressed L. A. 7517, a mixed local. The
order is giowing in that section of the dis

ganized. Peteeson's Magazine for March is a
fine combination of striking stories, hand

Analyses of Captured Bntterlne A Physi
cian Gives His Ideas No Poison as in
Bad flutter Heroic Cnrcs.
Some interesting chemical tests have been
made of the samples of the oleomargarine
purchased by the detectives for the informa
tion of Attorney William Yost and the
associated merchants behind him.
The analyses are from the best chemical
experts in the city, and, while not minute,
are sufficient for the occasion. They are in
teresting to all housekeepers as showing
jnst what they put into their confiding
stomachs daily under the mask of butter.
A sample of pure butter is first given in
order that comparisons may be easily
Pure butter-Water, 10; salt, 5; curd, 4, and
butter fat, 8L .
Slight adulteration Water, 3; salt, 2; curd,
10; butter, 72; oleomargarine, 13.
Adulterated-Water, 9; salt, 3; curd,
butter. 67; oleomargarine, 18.
Adulterated-Water, 6; salt, 4; curd, 5; butter,
63: oleomargarine, 'JX
Oleomargarine Water, 8; salt, 8: curd, 1;
butter, ll;oleomargarine,72.
The na-nesofthe firms selling the above
samples are not given, as they have not yet
been arrested. However, they may enjoy
the unique position of reading the crim
inating evidence beforehand, with the
cheerful assurance of Mr. Yost that they
will probably be arrested this week.
Poor, despised olco has gained a mnst un
expected, but a most valuable, champion in
the shape of one who most certainly should
know what he's talking about, especially
when his scientific hobbies are appealed to.
Dr. Joseph N. Dickson was shown the
above results of chemical tests of bogus but
ter, and he declared at once it was a shatne
that good, pure oleomargarine should be
adulterated with bad butter in the manner
it is.
He said he was no chemical expert, but
'margarine in its purity was very healthy.
It did not become rancid so rapidly as but
ter, and for his part the doctor "preferred
good butterine to bad butter every time.
The effect, Dr. Dickson said, of eating bad
butter is far greater than supposed, because
it is so gradual. Bancid boarding house
butter, old and strong enough to walk, was'
rank poison. The pure, sweet globule's of
dairy butter undergo a sort of transforma
tion that changes them from healthful food
to an actual poison, called -alkaline pto
maines, or, in plain words, anhydrous
oxides, a kind of alkali that enters directly
into the blood and poisons it.
This kind of poison is very hard on the
stomach lining also, and frequently shows
its barmfnl action on the blood by the
breaking out of pimples or eruptions, gen
erally on the face, and warned all ladies to
beware of bad butter, even to the eating of
butterine in preference.
It has been said by a gentleman conversant
with affairs, that he honestly believes the
present agitations and arrests have been
made merely to awaken public sentiment,
so that the anti-'margarine law, obnoxious
alike to seller and buyer, will be repealed.
The arresting parties, however, say they are
acting in go'od faith, and the method of
cure, if it is one, is certainly of the heroic
mold, as the big fines paid by reluctant
dealers will show.
Futile Eflorts of tliB Complinnants to Hold
a Union Meeting.
The reported dissatisfaction among the
extra conductors and gripmen on the Citi
ziens' Traction line is still talked of. It
was learned yesterday, from a reliable
source, that the'extra men had tried to call
a meeting Monday.as previously announced
in The Dispatch, but that the Master
Workman refused to have anything to do
with their grievances, telling them they
must abide by the agreement. What will
be the outcome is a matter of conjecture.
Mr. Sweitzer, who, it was stated by a con
ductor, was the first to learn of the rate of
wages Sundav, yesterday denied the allega
tion, stating that he did not have anything
to do with spreading the news.
Mr. AVilliara Vance, Chairman of the
Boad Committee of Local Assembly No.
2126, K. of L. (the Citizens' Traction Com
pany employe's branch), stated to a DIS
PATCH reporter yesterday that the company
sent for the Boad Committee and told thein
that they proposed to run 11 hours with two
sets of men, the swing men to take the reg
ular men's places when they stepped off the
cars, and to be paid by the trip, pro rata.
At the meeting of the men it was discussed
for three hours.and the men finally accepted
the proposition and instructed the committee
to wait on the officers of the company and
notify them that they had accepted.
"If they are dissatisUed," says Mr. Vance,
"they nave nobody but themselves to blame,
and will have to abide by the decision. It
they want to kick out of the traces, the as
sembly has nothing to do with it."
Will be Erected In the East End nnd Will
Cost Abont 840,000.
The Masons of the East End have about
bought a lot on Collins avenue for the pur
pose of erecting a Masonic Hall on the site.
Subscription lists are now making the
rounds,and the money for the lot has already
been raised.
There are two lodges and one chapter in
the East End, having a membership of 800,
and they have not a place, to give them the
necessary accommodations. The two lodges
are the Hailman and the Dnqnesne, besides
the Pittsburg chapter.
A prominent member of the fraternity
said yesterday, while speaking of the pro
ject: We expect to make our hall one of the finest
structures in the East End. The lot which we
are going to buy is in a very excellent location,
near Penn avenue. On next Saturday a joint
meeting will probably be held, and the plans
for the building will come under discussion. It
is our wish to spend about 40,000 o.i the ball
alone. The money is to be raised by tlio estab
lishments a ball association, each member of
tbe lodges taking shares in it.
Tbe building will accommodate the two
lodges, the chapter and a commandery. The
latter is not yet formed, but wo are very strong
and in excellent financial condition. There'
will be no difficulty in raising the money for
the purpose.

John Jarrett Says That Pittsburg
Needs It, and She Will Get It.
A Scheme is on Foot to Establish a Techni
cal School.
A mechanical drawing class was addressed
last evening in University hall, Sixth street,
by Mr. John Jarrett on the subject ol tech
nical education, and in the course of his
remarks some very interesting facts were
developed in regardto prospective technical
education iu Pittsburg. He said, in sub
stance: When I look around here at your tools and
the careful hands guided by the steady eye of
youth, my heart is delighted. The great desid
eratum of education is technical education, and
I need not to explain further than to say that
technical education is necessary to fill up the
gap left by our modern education in the arts
ana sciences.
I myself did not get-even a common school
education, leavinc school asl did when 11 years
old. I became a puddler. and performed this
labor for many years, when I finally became a
little more ambitious, and went to work learn
ing something technical about my trade. No
sooner bad I done this than I found demand
for my services from many channels, of which
I had hitherto never thought, and my increased
knowledge advanced me not only in my own
estimation, but in the estimation of my fellows.
There are many puddlers to-day injthis city
who know almost nothing technical of the pro
cess of puddling. Ask tbem what has taken
place as they throw the pigs of iron in the
flame, and then puddle the molten metal, and
they cannot tell you. Is it, then, any wonder
that they are discontented with their lot; dis
contented because they work without any inter
est in what they are doing? Is it any wonder that
they are always looking forward for an indefi
nite something what they know not? The very
tools you use. teach the eye and give you a
steady hand, and as yon learn, you gradually
come'tu understand your workiy means of this
education, and become more interested m
It is not necessary to state why the require
ments oi tne day demand tecnmcai education,
for, as machinery takes the, place of manual
labor, the mind is called in to help the physical
forces. In chemistry there are but a Jew men
who are versed. I maintain that we all should
know more or less about this science.
There is no reason why we should be de
pendent on one man, but every reason why
everybody should have technical knowledgs on
the subject. Compare the textile Industries of
this country and Europe, and you will find that
here the workman is familiar with only one
branch of his calling, and when he receives a
thorough knowledge of all tbe branches you
make him master of the situation. And when
jou educate yourselves thus, you arc masters
of.the situation.
And where should a technical school be
established, if not in Pittsburg? Pittsburg,
the greatest manufacturing center, not only of
this country, but of the world? And then, in
stead of you young men looking for a situation.
the situation will be looking for you, for in this
case, the rule of the survival of the fittest will
certainly be applied, and those who are not up
to your standard must take a back seat.
While our great labor leaders talk of educa
tion for the masses I believe not only in it, but
also in a technical education for tbem one
which will give a full and rounded-out train
ing. Men who have this training are needed to
fill high and responsible positions, and there is
no doubt that Pittsburg should have a tech
nical school befitting her size.
I might say that I have mentioned theprojeet
of establishing a technical school here, and
have had the assurance that $1,000,000 could
easily be raised, as tbe idea would find many
interested patrons Lere, and I intend to do all
I can to further the project.

Standards for the Analysis of Iron and
Steel." The speaker first pointed out the
abuses in the analysis of iron and steel, at
length and then said, that a practical
remedy for most of the evils could be found
in a system of international standards of iron
or steel.

A Local Lawyer Thinks the Lowell Bill
Should be Amended Why a Good Credit
Law la Needed Dend Bents.
As there seems to be such a generally
spread disposition to have another bankrupt
law enacted, some people are disposed to
ask why the Lowell bill was not accepted.
It appears that it 'was wrecked on one
clause. It provided that if you allowed
even your grocery bill to run a few days be
yond a specified time you would bead
judged as having committed an act on
which yon might be declared bankrupt.
When this provision struck the attention of
Senator George, of Mississippi, he jumped
up and tore the bill to tatters, declaring
that it would bankrupt almost everybody in
his State.
As the Chamber of Commerce of this city
has indorsed the Lowell bill it is suggested
by N. W. Shafer, Esq., that its members
take the further trouble to have this feature
eliminated if they wish to see the bill be
come a law. It is all well enough to pro
vide that a man shall not allow commercial
paper to run unpaid over 14 days; but when
it comes to paying grocery bills, that is an
other matter, as many well-to-do people
often find themselves unable to cash current
bills at a given time, and a wide field would
be opened to people maliciously inclined.
It is now considered indispensable to tbe
roper conduct of business that some general
ankruptlaw be passed, as it is getting
hazardous to do business with people at a
distance whose character you do not know,
a rascal being often able to stand well in the
commercial agency lists .while he is plan
ning to beat his creditors, and it is impos
sible to make him suffer for his rascality.
It is thonght by some that, to force the
cash system of doing business, would pro
duce widespread ruin, and that it can never
be reached. It certainly cannot be while so
many people of limited means are encour
aged to go into trade.
