savory reputation. Two men obtained a license

this house: that they have kept open all night, and
sold liquor to minors and men who were intoxi
cated. There has been gambling carried on in the
hotel, particularly in rooms Nos. J3 and 59.
The remonstrance created a sensation when
read. Mr. Scott had a hard slege.ln which Mr.

I can assume tbe responsibility of granting a
license over such a paper."

best chance." ..... .. i. v

into which inquiries should be made.

SETTLED FOE $60,0.00
The Injuries to Employes in That
Old P. & I. E. Wreck at Wampum.
Ind the Lake Erie Deals Mighty Gener
ously .With Engineer Orr.
The Pittsburg and Lake Eric Railroad
Company yesterday made a settlement of
claims for damages caused by a wreck, that
cost in the neighborhood of $60,000. The
details of the settlement are so novel that
they are worthy of publication. The story
shows that all railroad companies are not
devoid of sentiment, and are not lost to all
sense of moral obligations. The man who
did not rash into law with his claim got
more money and better treatment than the
men to whom the company wonld be com
pelled by suits to pay damages.
Headers of The Dispatch will remem
ber the wreck on the Xake Erie road, 'March
23, 1888, which was reported fully at the
time. Passenger train No. 1, the first ex
press out of Pittsbtfrg, crashed into passen
ger train No. 4, the second out of Youngs
town, right on the sharp curve between
Homewood and Wampum. The baggage
master of one of the trains, Samuel Grey,
was killed, while the crews of both engines
were disabled ior life.
they wanted bio boodle.
Within a very short time after the wreck,
and without presenting any claim to tb,e
railroad company, "Conductors McCaulley
and Bonner and Engineer Sankard,
sued tbe company at .Youngstown for
$50,000 each. The solicitors of the company,
Knox & Reed, of this city, were surprised at
such action, as they had been waiting to be.
asked to make a fair settlement. The officials
of the company were incensed at the large
claims, and decided to fight the matter. They
filed their answer and let the case go to trial.
Before entering the suits the three men went
to the other engineer, George Orr, of Mount
"Washington, and asked him to join them. He
thought the matter over and refused. He said
he thought the company "would do the square
thing," and he would wait until they ap
proiched him for a settlement. A short
time afterward they did so, and told
him the amount of money he might expect. He
was satisfied and awaited developments. In
addition to giving him 6,000 in cash, they
agreed to pay all his doctor's bills and other ex
penses, and keep him on tbe pay rolls until the
settlement was made. Since the accident he
has been drawing his wages every month, at
the rate of 5 10 per day, jnst the same as if he
were working.
Several times since the accident he has tried
to rnn an engine; bnt a trip from Pittsburg to
Youngstown would lay him up again for two or
three weeks. When the officers of the com
pany saw he could not work, they advised him
to take a trip to California for his health.
They offered him free transportation for him
self, family and household goods if be would
go. Mr. Orr has decided to go, and is now
making his arrangements.
By not going into the suit against the com
pany Mr. Orr came out away ahead of the
others. Taking everything into consideration
he go't abont 18,500, while tbe other men got
only about $1,000 each.
Tbe suit in Youngstown did not come to- an
issue, as a compromise was effected between
tbe plaintiffs and the company. The latter
agreed to give tbem $25,000 between them,
instead of the S150.000 asked for, if they would
sign a renunciation of all future claims of
themselves or their heirs. The men agreed to
do this, and tbe money was paid over to them.
It is presumed that tbe lawyers of tbe plaint
iffs will get one-third or one-half of tbe 25,000
for effecting the compromise. The men will
then have to pay their own doctors' bills and
all other expenses. In addition to this, the
company will never employ tbem again, and it
is a question whether they could get work on
any railroad or not.
If an employ sues a railroad company and
gets damages, there is a mutual understanding
among other companies .that he is not to be
employed. When the suits were entered these
men were dropped from the company's pay
rolls. Tbe men claimed, before tbe suit was
entered, that they had been dropped from the
rolls, while Orr was being paid bis regular
wages. The former part of the statement is
true. They were dropped from the rolls be
cause they did not have any time, bat they
would have been kept on the pay rolls if the
snit had not been entered. ,
It is so unusual a thing for a railroad com
pany to pay a claim for damages without being
compelled to. tbat a Dispatch reporter called
on one oi ice omciajs oi me company last even
ing and interrogated him in regard to the
matter. He said:
"While I know that it is the policy of other
railroad companies not to pay a cent on a col
lision claim until they are compelled bylaw,
it is not our policy. We have found that it is
always best to make a fair and honorable set
tlement as early as possible. Tbe damages
tbat we paid in tbe last year are
not one-fourth in proportion to what
was paid by. other companies. We
recognized the fact that we were under a moral
obligation to pay damages to those men, and
would have done so. Our negligent employe
crippled tbem for life, but there was no neces
sity of going to law about it. If they had not
sued us we would have paid them more money
than we did. Ihe Pennsylvania system pays
regular salaries to its lawyers, amounting to
hundreds of thousands of dollars annually, and
its policy is to make its lawyers earn their sal
aries. This is also the policy of the Baltimore
and Ohio Company."

The prisoner was seen by a Dispatch re

As soon as the shackles were taken from his

"I have nothing to say about the robbery,

well-educated man of abont 35 years of age.
He wears a full black beard, and is well
dressed. It instated tbat he bas about $70,000
in cash in some of tbe banks of this country or
Canada, and bas many friends. There has
been talk of an attempt to rescue him from'
tbe officer, but no good opportunity
was given. Detective Murphy was very care
ful with his prisoner, and only traveled in the
daytime, placing his companion behind bars
dnring the night. While on tbe train the pris
oner was shackled band and foot and fastened
to a seat in tbe car, and bis friends would have
had considerable difficulty in getting him away,
as -Detective Murphy had his hand on a re
volver that meant seven deaths if such an at
tempt was made.
There was considerable delay in getting the
necessary papers to bring tbe prisoner across
the line, but he was finally removed quietly
from the jail at Sandwich, taken to Toronto
and from tbere to Toledo, where he spent
Monday night. Tbe journey from that place
to Allegheny was made yesterday.
An Old Alleghenlan Attempts to End His
Life by Using a Revolver A Woman
Tries Poison, and Slav Succeed.
Edward Downing attempted to end his
existence by shooting himself yesterday
afternoon. He was sitting on a bench in the
East park, Allegheny, about i o'clock, when he
drew a revolver and fired at his breast. The
shot startled Officer Herman and others. Be
fore the policeman reached him he fired a sec
ond shot.
The would-be suicide was promptly disarmed
and sent to the Allegheny General Hospital in
the patrol wagon. The first bullet entered the
fleshy part of his arm, and tbe second his
tbigb. Tbe latter is considered dangerous, as
tbe ball passed into the groin.
The man refused to give his name or say any
thing except that he wanted to die, and would
do so before morning, if possible.
His name, as above, and residence were as
certained later from papers found in bis pos
session. It was learned that be owned prop
erty In Stowe township, and lived at ISO Irwin
avenue. His stepson, George Smith, called at
tbe hospital, and said the old man had not
been living at home for some time on account
of domestic troubles. Downing is about 50
years of age. The attending physicians believe
he will recover.
About 8 o'clodk last evening Nellie Stanley,
an inmate of No. 123 First avenue, took half
the contents ot an ounce bottle of laudannm
and aconite, with intent to commit suicide.
Dr. Mercur was summoned and did all be could
for ber, but was not hopeful of success in sav
ing her life. Tbe girl has been very despond
ent of late and has often threatened to take her
Will be In Plttsbnm and Attend tbe Annual
Plumbers' Convention.
The Master Plumbers of this city met last
night at their ball on Fourth avenue to
make arrangements for the seventh annual
convention of tbe. national organization. It'
will be held in this city in June, and there will
be delegates present from all over tbe country.'
Fully 400 delegates will be present, and they
will be tbe guests of the Pittsburg plumbers.
One of tbe leading plumbers of this city says
he has notified tbe city authorities to cut off
the gas and electric lights during tbe session to
save expenses. He gave as a reason tbat all
plumbers wore diamonds, and the brilliancy of
these gems would illuminate the city during
tbe nights that they were here.
At the meeting last night the different com
mittees on entertainment were appointed. The
delegates to the convention will not be Elected
until the next meeting. There will be a ban
quet, and no money will be spared to make tbe
convention one of the finest ever held here, and,
the Pittsburgers believe they can outdo the
grand reception given by the Boston plumbers
last year.
She Emphatically Denies the Sensations,
and Asks to be Forgotten.
Hiss Jennie McKee, whose disappearance
furnished material for a sensation that was,
but is no more, returned home yesterday, to
insist tbat she and her child still lived. She
declined to meet -a reporter personally last
evening; bnt both suicide and murder were
disproved. Her sister said that MissMcKee
had been stopping' at a Wheeling boarding
house and knew nothing of tbe trouble tbe
stories about her were causing until she re-,
turned to tbe city. -
She dislikedtbe notoriety exceedlnglyiand had
nothing whatever to say as to ber departure
from the city, except to deny both the tragedy
and the stories of ill-treatment that have been
printed about ber.
Mr. James McKee, 'her father, has also re
turned to the city, without the semblance of a
corpse in bis possession.

Miss Abbott Laughs at an Infantile Diva,
and William J. SmUes
Emma Abbott laughed heartier yesterday
afternoon than she has for many a day. She
sang one of her sweetest songs to the graph-aphone-phonograph.
Then the g p. sang
the same same thing to Emma., At first it
sounded as thongh tbe machine was Iryipg
to make fun of the famous songstress. She
clapped her hands, and was fairly convulsed
with the ludicrous side of the experiment
But presently her eyes sparkled and she
confessed her amazement over an invention
thaJ so perfectly echoes and re-echoes her
voice that it will be possible for her to fool
audiences hereafter with mechanical encores
while she is busy in her dressing-room pre
paring ior the next Act, -
It was by invitation of the lessees of the
talking-machine rights that the prima donna
and party dropped into the Fifth avenue office
at 5 P. ir. yesterday.
After talking nonsense into tbe instrument
awhile, the more musical powers of Edison's
wonder.were tested. Tbe huge tin funnel was
screwed upon the mouthpiece and in front of
this Emma Abbott and her handsome tenor,
SIgnor Mlchelena, seated themselves.
"It's too funny, you know,'1 she said.
"Everything in Pittsburg is f unnyl" he said.
Then he sang in his rich voice one of the
prettiest parts of the opera, "Rose of Castile."
When half through, Miss Abbott joined him.
Tbe full volume of her sweet staging made the
duet very sweet
The merry song-actress saucily told her
friends tbat the applause belonged to tbe
g p. S it was postponed, for the gp could
repeat and get it at any time.
Then another funnel, shaped like a brass
horn, was attached to the machine, the cylin
der was reversed, and there was heard,
all over the room. tbe ding
ing reproduced. This horn magnified
the tones without changing the voice. First
came Mlchelena's part. It was perfect, the
words being distinct and easily recognized.
Jnst as tbe funnel sang tbe words "I-love thee"
another voice came forth from tbe funnel. It
should have been Emma Abbott's; but it sound
ed so much like the faint, squealing
that Emma pressed both hands to her sides to
control ber form, convulsed with laughter.
Then the cylinder shiftedto Its proper place,
and ber voice was faithfully reproduced.
The duet was, so charming that a trio, from
the "Bohemian Girl," was tried. Miss Annan
dale joining Miss Abbott and Mlchelena.
W. J. Florence, the eminent comedian, also
rehearsed with the phonograph yesterday. He
delivered to it Bardwell Stole' s stump-speech,
and then, in different tones, told Captain
Cuttlds sea story. Two hours afterhe had done
this tbe wax cylinder was refitted in the ma
chine, the big funnel was attached, and tbe
writer had the pleasure of hearing what others
declared was Florence's ghost under a table.
The machine repeated tne speech and the story
in tones loud enough to b beard all over the
room. The peroration, the rising inflection and
the final burst of eloquence were all heard in
Florence's natural voice, and so vivid was tbe
impression tbat the spectator imagined Flor
ence's inimitable style tbere, too.
Bnt W. J. himself ejaculated: "Well, if
that's my voice Pm mighty glad to make its ac
quaintance. I've heard folks could recognize
all voices but their own in this machine; now I
know it."
