guished guests and others who had occn

Tho Usual Gigantic Scramble.
It is always intended that this procession
shall be an exceedingly dignified affair, but
as a matter of fact it is almost always
a gigantic scramble, and that is
what it was to-day. Everybody except
the Senators and the old and new officials
rnshed by differents routes to try to head
each other off and secure the best seats
possible. To-day the rush was attended
with several violent encounters between the
doorkeepers and the public
At last the outer air was reached, and
then the long line of men recovered its dig
nity and moved slowly out into the driving
rain, upon the half-acre platform of pine
boards, crowded with kitchen chairs and open
"to the angry elements. Prom that platform
President Cleveland and Mr. Harrison
looked down upon 60,000 or 70,000 men and
.women, standing shoulder to shoulder
in a mass that reached as far from
side to side, as the boundaries
of Allegheny's "West Park. It is a ques
tion whether the "West Park conld possibly
lave held so many persons, even were it rid
of its trees and benches.
The Rain Rises Aroln In Strum.
The spitefnl, slanting rain was beating
down upon the heads of that patient mass
that had been standing" there for
bours. Only on the outer edges of
the assemblage were umbrellas raised.
These protectors were all folded up and
used as cane, so as not to obstruct any
man's view. The people were all so sopping
wet that they glistened and gleamed in the
The strangest thing abont the crowd was
that it steamed steam rose from the
shoulders of the men and women in clouds,
and as fast as these were blown away other
clouds formed and chased after them.
TAKING THE OATH.
A Solemn nnd Impressive Scene In the
"Rain Harrison's Address Loudly Ap
plnaded Mrs. Morton Faints.
IBV ASSOCIATED PRESS.
It was nearly 1 o'clock when the proces
sion from the 'Senate appeared at the doors
of the rotunda, President Cleveland and
President-elect Harrison walking Bide
by side, and took their places
in a small inclosure, erected in
the center of the front of the
stand. Such members of the Senate, diplo
matic corps and of the House of Repre
sentatives and a number of other officers of
the Government as cared to expose them
selves to the rigors of the elements then
came on in a body.
"When the crowd saw the President there
Arose an uproar like the rnshing of the
waters of Niagara. The cheering was re
newed again and again, and it was not
until President Harrison had several times
raised his hand for silence that order
was restored. "When the cheering had par
tially subsided, Chief Justice Puller arose,
and, baring his abundant white locks to the
rain, held a Bible in his right hand ready
to administer the oath of office.
Uncovered in the Rain.
General Harrison and Sergeant at Arms
Canaday also removed their hats. It was a
most impressive scene. Standing with un
covered beads, in the midst of a pelting
rainstorm, the Chief Justice and the President-elect,
surrounded by high officials of
state and in the presence of an immense
multitude of citizens, faced each other with
bowed heads while the former read the oath
of office in a low tone of voice. The oath
exacted is in the following words:
"I do solemnly swear that I will faith
fully ezecnte the office of President of the
United States and will to the best of my
ability, preserve, protect and defend the
Constitution of the United States."
At the conclusion of the reading of the
oath the President, with his right hand
clasping the Bible, bowed his head in
assent. A silence almost awiul had marked
this proceeding, and when it was ended
there was another tremendous outburst of
applause. The cheering which followed this
ceremony having at length subsided some
what in deference to President Harrison's
request, he drew from his pocket a roll of
manuscript, and, after adjusting his spec
tacles, began reading his
as published elsewhere. He kept his silk
bat on during the delivery of his inaugural,
and was partly protected from the rain by
Sergeant at Arms Canaday, much after the
'manner in which Oriental potentates are
attended by their umbrella bearers.
Mr. Cleveland, now an ex-President,
stood up during a part of the address, but
becoming tired toward the close, seated
bimself. The President spoke in aloud,
clear tone with a distinct enunciation and
emphasized with much earnestness portions
of his speech.
It was an instance of the President's
power to rise above surroundings and be
come wholly indifferent to them. His man
ner was as deliberate and forceful as if he
were in the Senate chamber perfectly at
ease. His gestures were emphatic and
pertinent, and all the graces ot oratory of
which he is master Tere brought into play
Warming Dp to the Work.
He became heated after a short time, and
removed his overcoat. Observing at this
time that Mr. Canaday still had his head
exposed to the weather, he requested him to
don his hat, and for the rest of the address
the Senate's Sergeant at Arms wore his head
Shortly after General Harrison had begun
vpeaking, his family, consisting of Mrs.
Harrison, Mr. and Mrs. Bussell B. Harri
son and Mr. and Mrs. J. B. McKee, came
forward and were shown to places
within the Presidental inclosure.
"Vice-President , Morton and Mrs.
Morton were also present during
a part of the ceremony,but the latter fainted
in the throng, and was removed to the Vice
President's room in the Senate, where she
was quickly revived and taken home.
The delivery of the address was frequent
ly marked by loud applause and shouts of
approval. Reference to Dakota produced
considerable cheering, but when the Presi
dent spoke of a free ballot the applause was
Blighty and tremendous.
A Suspicions Quiet.
There were only mild demonstrations of
approval when the President spoke of his
policy in regard to the offices, and when he
mentioned the words "Civil Service" there
was a stlence broken- only by a
prolonged "Ah" from a solitary voice
sin the crowd. The references to the rehab-
' ilitation of the navy and to the establish
ment ot steamship lines evoked cheers and
'cries of "Good." but the most overwhelm-
jing shout of approval was reserved for the
statement of the President's pension policy.
The crowd cheered again and again at
the point, and waved their hats and canes
wildly. At the close of the address there
was another outburst of applause, dnring
which the President turned and kissed his
wife and daughters. The crowd, which had
allthis time surged back and forth like the
waves of the sea, gradually dissolved.
A line was formed and the President re
traced his steps to the Vice President's
room of the Senate, escorted by President
Hoar. Senator Cockrell escorted the retir
ing President to the President's room. The
Senator kept his umbrella raised within the
building, and it was not until he had twice
or more knocked Mr. Cowland's hat off
that he realized that he was no longer in a
rainstorm and lowered his umbrella.
Goodby to Grover.
Ex-President Cleveland remained in the
President's room about five minutes with
Major Pruden, one of his secretaries, and
then he joined President Harrison in the
Vice President's room. The entire party
again formed in procession and departed by
the east doors of the Senate, through which
they came. Next came ex-President Cleve
land, attended by Senator Cockrell, fol
lowed by Senator Cnllom. Private Secre
tary Halford, attended by General George
B. "Williams, brought up the rear.
"While the procession was moving through
the corridors Senator Edmnnds met Mr.
Cleveland and greeted him with great cordi
ality. "I trust," said the Senator, "you
will have a pleasant and happy and pros
perous future. You have my best wishes."
Mr. Beed, of Maine, also exchanged
pleasant salutations with the retiring Chief
Executive. Deafening cheers and demons
trations ot anplause again greeted the party
as they descended the Senate steps, and con
tinued until they were seated in their car
riages and took their places in the proces
sion which immediately began to move.
A CARNIVAL OF FIRE.
The Flambeau Competition Conducted In tho
Pouring; Rain Kansns Wins the
" Prize A Gorgeous Spectacle.
"Washington, March 4. One of the
most picturesque features of the outdoor
ceremonies was the 'prize contest of the
Flambeau clubs. The soaking rain,
which had ceaselessly fallen dur
ing the day, abated not a whit as
night came on. The general pyrotechnic
display, which had been arranged to take
place in the monument grounds in the early
evening was necessarily postponed, but the
contesting flambeau clubs, each determined
to win a prize, braved the storm, as did sev
eral thousands of spectators, and declared
their readiness to proceed.
All were on the grounds at 9:30 o'clock.
The Atchison (Kan.), club was the first to
test its skill. Their uniform was a long
white canvas coat) and helmet, and as they
marched out of Seventh street into Pennsyl
vania avenue, and in front of the judges
with their torches lighted, they presented a
weird and striking appearance,
A FLASH OF FLAME.
At the word of command great tontrnes of
flame leaped from every torch, lighting the
surrounding buildings like a conflagration.
And then came a bewildering shower of
rockets blue, , pink, red, yellow and
white. Up and down street they
marched in the center of an
acre of fire. Loud repot ts, like the explo
sion of shells, followed each other in quick
succession, and then the sky above march
ing column seemed filled with myriads of
meteors tinted in every conceivable hue.
The club acquitted itself with great honor
and as they quitted the drill grounds were
Next came the Cvclone Club of Law
rence, Kan., with an entirely distinctive
display on its peculiar line. Pacing the
judges' stand, at a given signal, a perfect
cyclone of fire burst forth. Midst the
rattle of crackers, the firing of romau
candles, the hissing rnsh of the
rocket and the tremenduous concussion of a
hundred bombs the club started at a quick
pace toward Tenth street. The atmosphere
heavy with clouds of smoke left by its pre
decessors, which was beaten down to the
earth by the misty rain, turned red and blue
It fairly gleamed with opalescent color.
A dozen great Catherine wheels spun in
fiery circles; rockets hissed in anger, stars
of a hundred hues laced the storm-blackened
skv; redfire blazed in volcanic erup
tion. The- title of the club "Cyclone," in
glittering letters stood forth and finally the
masterpiece was wrought.
A score of rockets flew heavenward in
parallel lines and simultaneously a glori
ous constellation of colored stars, represent-'
ing a gigantic American flag, flowed in
lines of fire upon the night.
The Plambeau Club, of Sedalia, Mo., was
the last organization to take part in the
competition. There were about 75 men in
line. Clad in their white uniforms, which
glistened brightly as the electric lights
gleamed white upon the wet canvas, the
club was most attractive in appearance.
It started off quietly without any display
save that of the brilliant torches. Evolnt
ing frequently in front of the judges' stand
the spectators assumed that it would rely
more upon the perfection of its drill than
upon the brilliancy of its display of fire
works to secure a favorable judgment.
But in a few minutes the heavens, bereft
of their natural illuminations, were ablaze
with the myriads of stars which the art of
man had discovered. Blue, greci yellow
and red were they in hues, and the club
being well drilled in its action and every
operator seeking a common centre, the eflect
was gorgeous in the extreme.. Then the
starry serpents wending their way through
the heavy atmosphere and dying amid a
burst of multi-colored fires excited the ad
miration of the beholders.
The judges retired immediately after the
close of the contest and in a short time an
nounced their decision, -awarding the first
prize to the Cyclone Club and the second to
the Sedalia Club, of Sedalia, Mo.
THE SENATORIAL PROGRAMME.
Cabinet Appointments Will be Confirmed
Without Any Delay.
"Washington, March 4. The under
standing is that President Harrison will
send in the names of the members of his
Cabinet to the Senate to-morrow, and that
they will be confirmed at once. As
to the length of the session there
is a diversity of opinion. The Chandler
and Hoar resolutions to investigate alleged
fraud in elections, and outrages, are still on
the calendar, and if passed by the Bepnbli
cans in pursuance of the caucus action last
month a delay may ensue which will carry
the session far into the spring.

THE LADIES' GOWNS.
What the Fair Ones of the Now President's
Family Wore A Pretty Picture In
the Senate Gallery The Cleve
land i'cTr Empty.
"Washington, March 4. In the Senate
to-day the occupants of the President's gal
lery were the cynosure of all eyes. As they
took their seats the dresses of the ladies
were eagerly scanned and criticised by tho
members of the fair sex present.
Mrs. Harrison wore a tailor-made suit of
gris de perle cloth, embroidered in black
silk; and a bonnet of black and gold, with
ostrich tips. She wore tan gloves and car
ried a bunch of Souvenir de "Wootin roses.
Mrs. J. B. McKee's dress was a cloth
suit of cy there. Its principal trimming was
a strip of thiDet fur, and passementerie1! nnd
clusters of white lace completed the orna
mentation of dress and wrap. Her bonnet
was white, embroidered in gold, with white
ostrich tips and face trimmings of sage
Mrs. Bussell B. Harrison wore an elegant
suit of deep red cloth. The vest and panels
and wraps were of black astrachan, dec
orated with orasene embroideries in black
silk. A becoming bonnet of black, with
red ros.es, completed a very striking cos
tume. Mrs. B. S. McKee's suit was a tailor-made
gown and wrap of black cloth; bonnet and
gloves dark, to match.
Mrs. Saunders had on a snit of bronze

Mrs. Morton wore a tailor-made snit,
partially in the directoire style, of neutral

The seating of the partv of the President

AS OTHERS SEE IT.
Comments of the English Press on Harri
son's Innngnral Address As a
Rulo it Does Not Ex
actly Suit Them.
London, March 6. The Times doubts
whether President Harrison's proposed new
departure relative to naturalization laws
would be advantageous either for America
or for the rest of the world. Mr.
Blaine's' foreign policy, it says, appears
prominent in the address. The general
assertion regarding coaling stations and har
bors is probably intended to cover both
Samoa and the Canadian fisheries. In the
department of finance the Times thinks
President Harrison's views are not very
The Daily News says:
Gold had a more decisive influence on the
late election than on any that has gone before.
The rich on both sides virtually buy places in
the administration by liberal donations to cam
paign funds. It is a form of tho
purchase system which bodes no
good to the State, and shows that civil
service reform must begin at the very apex
ot tlie pyramid. President Harrison's Inaugu
ral address is remarkable for its numerous for
eign allusions. The Union may refuse to grow
in territory, but canr.ot refuse to grow in in
terests. The creation of a navy is evidently
dne to other considerations than the necessity
for reducing the surplus. Tho world may soon
have to leckon with a new naval power. There
arc more disquieting signs for those who care
to find them in the curious interchange of
views on commercial union between Canada
and America than in the fisheries question.
The Standard says:
The message, on the whole, is disappoint
ing. Mr. Harrison was nnder a special obliga
tion to strike a resounding chord. Some of the
phrases suggest Walt "Whitman, hut it is more
reasonable to credit the prolific fancy of Mr.
Blaincnith its full unaided, inspiration. It
was certainly not written to please Anglo
Saxons on this side of the -Atlantic If its
form was not adopted with any view to our ap
preciation, still less was its matter. '
The Morning Post says:
President Harrison's address is marked by a
commendable absence of bombast, and if this
marks tho future tone of the National bolicy
another element in tho concord of the world
will have been secured.
The Daily Telegraph says:
There is nothing at all in the address to ex
cite alarm. The fact that Mr. Harrison is so
well disposed to deal with foreign affairs in a
calm and equitable spirit will be remarked
with satisfaction by every country in the Old
World with which America has friendly rela
tions and occasional differences.
The Chronicle says the address will be
searched in vain for anything calculated to
enlist the sympathies of Englishmen. All
the Unionist dailies make a point of Mr.
Harrison's references to law and order as a
lesson to England in the Irish question.
EDITORS' VIEWS OF THE ADDRESS.
Democratic Jonrnnls Speak RUshtlngly ot
It nnd Others Praise It Highly.
New York, March 5. The Journal of
Commerce, of this date, says:
As a whole tho inaugural will be received
with unlimited acclamation by the entire body
of his own party, and its frankness and candor
will be no less heartily admired by those who
are counted in the ranks of the opposition.
They know now just what to expect from the
victorious occupants of the place of authority.
t The Times finds nothingimpressive in the
remarks of Mr. Harrison; thinks the tone
and manner commonplace. His reference
to the early protective policy and its motives
is wholly irrelevant to the present situation.
The Herald regards it as the deliverance
of a sincere and extremely clear-minded
man, and says there will be no shilly shally
The Tribune this morning says:
The inaugural address will be criticised
angrily by those whose heresies or misdeeds it
rebukes. The President will not havetocom-
glain, as Dr. Johnson once did, that his speech
ad not been sufficiently attacked, adding, "I
never think I have hit hard unless it re
bounds." But the strong and patriotic appeal
of the President will go to the hearts and the
convictions of the American people.
AN INTERESTING SDIT.
An Allegheny Cracker Manufacturer Mokes
an Information Against a Pittsburg Ulan
'Squire Neillie, of the Fourth ward, Al
legheny, yesterday issued a warrant for the
arrest of a prominent Pittsburg cracker
manufacturer on a charge of larceny. The
information was made by a prominent Alle
gheny manufacturer of crackers. Constable
Billings was handed the warrant for the ar
rest of the man, but found that he had gone
to Washington to attend the inauguration.
The officer had a search warrant, and dis
covered all the goods alleged to have been
stolen on the property owned by the de
fendant. The case is a peculiar, if not an amusing,
one. All cracker manufacturers furnish tin
boxes to their customers for their goods, and
when the box is emptied it is replaced by
one that is filled with crackers. The Alle
gheny plaintiff charges that the Pittsburg
defendant's agents took his tin boxes and
put his own in their place.
"When Constable Billings got the search
warrant he visited the place of business of
the man, and also his works, and found a
'number of the alleged stolen cans.
A reporter for tiiis paper called at the
residence of the plaintiff, but he refused to
talk on the subject. A call was also made
on the Alderman, but he was too busily en
gaged to produce the information or say
anything about the matter. The defendant
was absent from the city and could not be
seen. A call at the cracker factory last
night showed all the doors to be locked and
no one answered. Constable Billings says
he has a wnrrant for the man's arrest and
will take him into custody as soon as he re
turns to town.
An employe of the defendant stated that
all the cracker dealers in this city, except
the plaintiff, have a mutual agreement
whereby they take each other's boxes; the
boxes in the first place are sold to the cus
tomer, who pays. SO cents for them, and, if
they are returned when empty, the money is
refunded. A number, of plaintiffs boxes
were returned to the defendant by custom
ers, who were paid back their 60 cents; but
the plaintiffs refused, when notified, to take
these boxes, ana they were used, and this
caused the suit.
GROSS SATS IT WAS J1DRDER.
He Slakes a Dying Statement Accusing
Judge McKenna was summoned to the
home of Gross, the man at first thought to
have been accidently shot by John Carter
at Clark's mill yesterday, late last night
and took the following deposition:,
"I, B. G. Gross, aeed 41 years, a resident of
Amman alley, nearFortieth street. Pittsburg,
believing that I am going to die from wounds
Inflicted this day, do mako this my dying depo
sition: This afternoon John Carter came over
by my furnace at Clark's Mill. William John
son was standing with me. Will Johnson asked
Carter when James Johnson was going home.
John . Carter said, 'What have you
got to Uo with him going home.'
William Johnson says. 'Why, he is going
my way.' Carter said, "You are a liar;-when
Johnson said, 'If yon call me a liar, you
wouldn't call my partner a liar.' Carter said,
Your big partner, and said to me, 'Maybe you
don't like it.' I said, 'Go on, you man,' when he
Eut his hand in the left-hand pocket of
is coat and drew a revolver. He
said, mere is your age, nigger,' and
then fired the revolver. He held the pistol in
his left hand when he fired and shot me in the
breast. I was just going to work wheu it hap
pened, and Carter was done work. We had no
words except as stated. Imake this statement
believing I am going to die, and say that John
Carter is the man who shot me on March 4, at 2
p. M.. in Clark's mill."
Gross is a powerful man .6 feet 4 Inches tall,
and weighing 209 pounds. He came to Pitts
burg last April from Hagerstown. Md.
The ball entered about the center of the
chest on the right side of the breast, went
through and lodged under tho right shoulder
blade. It is thought to beat present in the
lungs. " '
Drs. Black, Herron and Zimmerman are
are at present attending him.
Carter, who was arrested immediately after
the shooting, is still in the Seventeenth ward
station, and reiterates that the shooting was
accidental. He is a brother of Jesse Carter,
who was hnng a few years ago for the murder
of a man on Water street.

Mike Connolly, the man who stabbed
James Godfrey at the house of Anna King,

Mr. Sharon, in conversation with a Dis
patch reporter.said: "When we declined
to join the organization for the reason that
it would not benefit us in the least, they
proceeded to abuse us. One man got up
and said the Pittsburg Exchange did not
amount to anything. 'It was merely an or
ganization, he said, that met on the fifth
floor of a building nnd the members only
paid J2.50 a year in dues and could not af

voice in the convention and said nothing."
Mr. George Fulmer, one of the leading
members of the exchange, and chairman of
the Building Committee, returned home
yesterday from an extended trip to Califor

day and reported that nothing had been
done in the matter of erecting a Building as
proposed, but that the committee would get
down to active work within a few days.

- ONE MORE L.&0. CHAPTER.
John A. Martin Snes the Wlsharts for Dis
orderly Condnct-.Mnrk Handcd'Hlra
One, and John Returned It.
Tliis morning John A. Martin, of Smith
field street, will make an information be
fore Justice Gripp against Mark "Wishart,
or Mark and the Captain both, for dis
orderly condnct, and one more chapter in
the career of the Xaw and Order detectives
will become a matter of official record.
The story of the cause of this information
can best be told by John 'himself. He was
seen last evening in his store, and his
usually good-natured countenance was
somewhat flushed, and just a tiny bump
over his left eye showed a contact with
hands at least not friendly.
"I had just stepped out of my store at
about 4:30," said he, "and was raising an
umbrella for a lady customer, when I
noticed Captain Wishart, with his son
Mark, coming up the street toward Sixth
avenue. Mark had hold of his father's
arm, and I paid no attention to them until
he stopped directly beside me and said
" 'You called me a ' (using a name
not usually addressed to gentlemen of ordi
dary business pursuits).
" 'No, I said, 'I have not spoken to you;
I haven't made anv remark to you.'
"All this timej" continued Martin, "I
was trying to protect the lady from the
rain. Mark made a move toward me and I
handed the lady her umbrella and backed
away toward the sidewalk, next door. Mark
struck at me and I warded off his blow. He
struck again and acain, and one blow
smashed the rim of my hat and raised a
little swelling here, as you can see.
"This was on my own sidewalk and I
never made one blow at them. The next
moment we stood on the pavement of
Dauler, Close & Johns', just next door,
when I saw I was being pushed a little too
hard, as the Captain followed us closely.
"I reached for Mark, and I don't know
whether I hit him hard or not. Anyway he
must have staggered back against his dad,
for the Captain's plug hat flew off .into the
street, and his umbrella fell.
'The moment I 'pushed Mark, the Cap
tain's hand flew, quick as a flash, to his hip
pocket, and Mr. Johns, who was standing
in his door, evidently feared some shooting
would follow, for he yelled quicklv:
" 'Don't do that again, John. Don't hit
that man again 1'
"The proceedings ended right there." con
tinued Martin. "I dropped my hands, and
the Cap and his son made off lively, for
there were fully 60" people gathered about,
and among them I have several valuable
witnesses as to my forbearance in the at
tack; among them the wife of a prominent
doctor, also her driver, and Mr. Johns, be
sides others. I am bnly sorry I do not know
the name of the lady who was standing' by
me when "Wishart's ugly remark was made;
but the mortified lady hurried away, and I
sent at once to the Union depot to catch her,
but it was too late."
The other side of the case may change its
complexion. Neither of the Messrs. "Wish
art could be found at their office when ex
planation was sought.
THE GERMAN PROTEST.
Another Anti-Prohlbltlon Address by John
E. Joos, to 500 Druids He Speaks Most
Earnestly to Them.
The Druiden Sangerbnnd, of Allegheny,
held their ninth anniversary celebration
last night in a manner which was thor
oughly German. There were lots of people
in Jefferson Hall, on Madison avenue, and
they all managed to have lots of fun.
The programme of the evening was
opened with the presentation of an old Ger
man comedy, entitled "The Stepmother."
When the curtain fell after the last act,
the President of the Druids annonnced to
the 500 or more people who filled the hall
that Mr. John E. Joos would favor them
with an address. Mr. Joos, being enthusi
astically received, said:
11 Is'a grand privilege thai f we enjoy here to
night, the privilege to be able to celebrate a
festival in a mannor and according to the cus
tom of our national usage. Bnt I see a time
looming ahead, when a certain class of people
will attempt to deprive us of the right to hold
our reunions' and anniversaries in the jolly old
fashioned German way. I am alluding to the
people who are endeavoring to introduce pro
hibition into the State of Pennsylvania.
Now, we citizens who have lived here, whose
parents have lived here and fought for the in
dependence of America and the liberty of the
stars and stripes, we must prevent these peoplo
from undermining the fundamental principles
of the American Constitution. A law that dic
tates to aman what hi shall drimc is a law ut
terly Incompatible with the Constitution of this
country. Ihope, and sincerely trust that you,
and all of you, will use your utmost energy to
prevent such a thing, and do like the first Ger
man, who came into Allegheny county, stand
up and defend the liberty and independence of
WILL THE PARADE PROTE FATAL?
A Doctor Says Some of the Inaugurating
Toans Men Must Go.
"I am going to watch the papers for deaths
as the result of this inauguration and tramp
of the boys through the streets of Washing
ton," said a gentleman to a Dispatch re
porter yesterday. "Mark my word, ere
spring is here we will learn of the death of
some young man of pneumonia, chronic
rheumatism or some other disease, and when
he comes to think back he will say, 'My
trip to "Washington is to blame for this.'
"I have seen many go from the same
causes, and, after anything of this kind, I
have often watched the papers to see the
outcome, always with the same results.
Some of my Iriends, or people I knew,
yielded up their lives from the exposures of a
drizzling rain and a general laxity of habits
such as an occasion like this always brings.
If you don't believe me, watch the papers
for the next two or three months."
THE POWER OF THE CHDRCH.
A Paper on Its Relation to the Conflict of
Capital Versus Labor.
At the monthly meeting of the Ministerial
Alliance yesterday Dr. J. G. Goettman read
a paper entitled "The Church and its Rela
tion to the Conflict Between Capital and
Labor." 'The paper was an able argument
for the necessity of the spirit and gospel of
Christ in all dealings among men.
Will Reduce tho Force.
A special meeting of the committee ap
pointed by the "Water Committee of Alle
gheny Councils to consider the advisability
of reducing the number of hydrant and

was decided that five men were enongh to
handle the work, and the force was reduced.
The names of the men who will be dropped
were not learned.

THE BOROUGH'S FACTOEI SALE.
Coraopolis' Defonct machine Shop Sold to
Coraopolis may have a factory of some
kind, after all. The building and ten acres
of ground were sold yesterday at Sheriff's
sale for 56,600 to the terre tenant, William
M. Orr. It is understood that the purchaser
assumes the debts, and it isn't likely that
the property will long be allowed to lie
The building might be adapted to sev
eral uses then, either that originally in
tended or a planing mill. It would serve
admirably for the latter use. Its erection
gave considerable impetus to building in
the village, and the resurrection or the pro
ject, or some other one, would give the place
a mild boom, notwithstanding the fact that
some property holders still stand in the way

March 18 the rates to all points, taking
Texas rates, will be governed by the west
