White remarked that hundreds of letters
that are piling up on his desk with the in

considerably. They come in the form of
petitions and remonstrances from every

In speaking of letters coming from the
wives of workingmen who spend their
money and time in saloons to the neglect of
their family. Judge White said:
"I will say right here that my sympa

men and.not with the saloon keepers, who
merely want a license to make money with

Sarah Ann Hammill, 329 Thirty-third

would receive consideration.

"All they want are drinks?"
"What kind of men visit your saloon?"
"Mostly mill men."
"According to your statement yon receive
S50 a day for liquor alone. The great por

the mill. Don't you think their families
need that money more than you do?"
After several evasions, he finally ad

more than he did.

What did yon do this pait year?"

Darby Finnerty, lio. 1326 beeond, is a teamster,

An Old -Iron Mill to Be Started tn a Short
The Cartwrightlron Works, better known
as the Alikanna Mill, situated about two
miles east of Steubenville, is to be started
up on Monday, April 1, by the National Tube
and Boiling Mill Company of McKeesport.
Nearly all the men who are to work in it are
from Pittsburg mills. The puddling depart
ment will be under the management of Mr.
John Clemens, a Sonthside puddler. A num
ber of pnddlers and helpers from Lindsay fe
McCntcheon's mill have notified their man
ager that they intend to quit and go to work in
the Alikanna mill.
This mill was originally built with 12
single puddling urnacps and two trains of. fin
ishing rolls. The main product was to turn ont
light iron, with cotton ties a specialty, bnt since
the spring of 18S2 it has been idle. It has been
enlarged recently and there are now 20 single
and one donble puddling furnaces, with a
capacity to turn out about 45 tons of muck iron
a day. All of this iron is to be rolled intopipe
iron and shipped to the pipe mill at McKees
port. The fuel used will be slack and cold
blast. This makes five mills making nothing
but pipe iron for this pipe mill.

Light Comedy nnd OInalc Amuse the Mem
hers of the Alex. Hays Post.
The General Alex. Hays Post No. 3, G.
A. ., gave their annual reception and en
tertainment yesterday evening at the Forbes
street Turner Hall.
The latter was tastefully decorated with
the national buntmg, and also that of foreign
countries. Anoticeablc featnre was a series of
bannerets, each bearing the name of one State
in the Union, making a very neat display. The'
first part of the entertainment consisted of a
comedy entitled "The Jerseyman," under the
direction of 3. C. Kober, and an audience ot
about 500 witnessed the rise of the curtain.
The comedy was well presented and equally
well received, as it succeeded in entertaining
the audience until 10:30, when dancing became
the order of the evening although the old war
horses would have it "order of the day."
Supper was served in the basement dining
rooms, and the Great Western Orchestra, un
der the leadership of Prof. Weiss, "tuned their
harps" for the lovers of the dance.
The entertainment was a great financial suc
cess, several hundred having been netted by
the Post, although the exact amount cannot
yet be determined.

Certain business negotiations have been

A gentleman who is closely connected

and Mr. Mayor that they would buy the build

Dayton Citizens RIehtly Think That We
Know All About Gas A Letter That
Pitches Into Pittsburg Companies.
Mayor McCallin yesterday received a let
ter from the Mayor of Dayton, O., request
ing information as to the uses and abuses.of
natural gas as used here. The City Coun
cils of Dayton last year granted to the Dayton
Gas Company the privileses of the city streets
for natural gas pipe laying.
The agreement was that the company should
furnish gas to everybody at three-fourths the
cost of coal. The company began to lay its
pipes to the wells 60 miles distant. They laid
but 30 miles of pipe within the 'limit of time'
given them. They asked 40 days grace, but the
City Council held them to their contract. They
refnsed to permit the company to connect its
line with the pipes laid in the city, unless the
company would agree to rednce the price of
gas which was stipulated in the contract. The
company replied that they could not afford to
Councils then sent a committee to visit sev
eral gas cities, to learn what the arrangements
were with thecas companies. Pittsburg was
the most important point of observation.
In the letter the Philadelphia and the Alle
gheny Heating Companies come in for a very
large share of condemnation. Both are re
ferred to as "monopolies." and are charged
with bavinc increased the price of gas far
above that of coal. The Philadelphia Com
pany Is reported to have declared a dividend of
10 per cent on its capital stock for the year
ending March 31, 1888, but as the capital stock
was not paid np. the dividend really amounted
to from 40 to 60 per cent. This, it is alleged by
the committee, in face of the, fact that the
rates to consumers were then one-third less
than now and the company spending large
sums for improvements and betterments. The
movement of Allegheny citizens against the
natural gas rates was reviewed.
It is stated in the letter that the business
men of Dayton are not in sympathy with the
action of the City Councils. Theyaskforreliable
statement of good authority on the uses and
abuses of natural gas in this city, and an
opinion on the report of the Council commit
tee, which they evidently do not believe.
THE M0N0N CONDEMNATION.-
Viewers Spend n Day at Lqck No. 7 The
Masonry Found Inferior They Will
Meet Again In This City on' April 8.
The Monongahela navigation delegation
that left this city Wednesday afternoon to
view lock and dam Ko. 7, about 95 miles up
the river, arrived in Monongahela City last
night at 10 o'clock.
They had reached the lock at 9 o'clock
yesterday morning, and spent considerable
time in examining It in all its details. To sat
isfy their curiosity they then proceeded 16
miles further up the river, to see lock and dam
No. 8, which is now being constructed by the
Government. After viewing this dam, which
is to cost $236,000, the viewers organized, elect
ing John Snlllvan Chairman and. George A
Kelly Secretary, and took the preliminary
testimony of William Bakewell, Treasurer of
the Navigation Company, which developed
nothing new. The masonry of 'lock and dam
No. 7was apparently very inferior in quality
and not of the most substantial character.
One of the disinterested gentlemen who was
with the party, and who is thoroughly familiar
with the condition of the company's affairs
and future prospects, said last night that, had

A STRANGE CASE.
A Young Allegheny Girl Accused of Steal
Ing Her Dead Mother's Watch. '
Mayor Pearson, of Allegheny, had a con
sultation with a young lady last evening

shoe dealer on Ohio street. The father in
formed the Mayor in the morning that his wife
had died several weeks ago and his daughter
took her watch, some articles'of clothing, and
other articles, which he wanted her to return.
The Mayor wrote a note to the girl asking
her to.call, and she was on band last evening.
She emphatically denied having taken her
mother's watch or anything that belonged to
her, but stated that her father or "brother had
collected 9 due her for wages earned In a
store in this city. As the girl became of age
last month, she believes she is entitled to the
money. The Mayor agreed to investigate the

PROHIBITION IN THE EAST END.
Evangelist Bnliey Bcclns n Series of Lec
tures tn Liberty Hall, Under the Aus
pices of the W. O. T. U.
The announcement of the fact that Col
onel S. T. Bailey had been secured by the
members of the Women's Christian Tem
perance Union to lecture for them at Lib
erty Hall, East End, attracted quite an
audience to that place last night to hear
what the Evangelist had to say on the subject
The speaker had no idea of leaving anybody
in doubt as to what he was going to say, and
he started as soon as the opportunity presented
"Ladies and gentlemen," he commenced, "I
am going to be here for ten days and we will
hold meetings In this hall every evenlnc. Now,
what I propose to do in that time is this: I
mean to talk to you about the saloons, the
saloonkeeper, liquor and the liquor traffic I
will show you what these institutions have
done and are doing in this country, feeline
confident that, after I am through, yon will
exactly know how you stand and on which side
you belong. Now, I venture to say that this
question of prohibition is not half understood
by the people of Pennsylvania.
"The saloon is an institution, is based on
superstition and ignorance, there is not a ves
tige of intelligence about it. The refined and
better educated class of citizens won't have
anything to do with it. Why 45 years ago we
did not know what a saloon was in this country,
we did not know the name of such a thing. It
was brought here by foreigners, and to-day
three-fourths of the saloons of this country are
owned by people who emigrated to this country.
"Mind yon.I amnotan enemy of immigration,,
but I do protest against the foreigners
who convert our homes into places of desola
tion, who make onr men drunkards and our
children the prey of vice and intemperance.
"So far the liquor trade has been powerful.
Even the law has shed its lnstre aronud it and
has protected it Now that roust bo stopped.
"Last year we made a compromise by the In
troduction of a high license bill, but even that
must be abolished.- We cannot take half meas
ures any more; no, we must have prohibition in
its fullest and most comprehensive sense.
That is the only thing that. -Kill save our
homes, churches and schools, the fundamental
institutions of a civilized nation, and durine
the time that 1 shall be here I will give you suf
ficlent reasons to justify our demands."
These lectures will be continued for ten days
In Liberty Hall. '

FRIDAY, MABOED . i22,
NO MORE EXPLOSIONS.
All Steamboat Boilers Over 10 Years
Old Must bo Drilled.
THE FIRST TEST UNDER THE LAW,
Riyer Men of This City Agitating the
Eepeal of the Act.
THEY WAST TO OABRi OIL BARRELS
The United States authorities have issued
a new rnle which will place a stronger
safeguard around steam boilers, and proba
bly put a stop, in a measure, to the great
loss of life on steamboats caused by the ex
plosion of boilers.
The new law is causing a great amount
of indignant comment among boat owners
of Pittsburg, aud an effort will be made to
have it repealed.
The first boat to be inspected under the
new law was the towboat Scout, of this city.
Inspectors Neeld andtiSullivan carefully
examined her yesterday, and issued a certifi
cate for another year.
The boilers of the boat are about 12 years
old, and to find the thickness of the plates
holes had to be drilled in them. This neces
sarily takes a great amount of time, which
means a greater amount of money to the boats
when the river is falling and the tows have
been mado np to go out. It takes about a day
to make an inspection under the new law, and
about the time it is completed and steam has
been raised again, the river may have fallen to
below a coalboatlng stage.
CLEAB CUT AlfD CONCISE. I
The following is a copy of the new law:
Any boiler having been in use 10 years or more,
shall, at each annual inspection thereafter, be
drilled at points near the water line and at the
bottom of the shell of the boiler, or such other
?olnts as the local Inspectors may direct, to de
ermine the thickness of such material at those
points, and the general conditions of such boiler
or boilers at the time of such inspection, and the
thickness 01 such material shall be determined
thereafter at each annual Inspection, and the
steam pressure allowed -shall be governed by such
ascertained thickness and general condition of the
In speaking of the matter yesterday Inspec
tor Neeld said: "I understand that the Coal
Exchange is going to take some action on the
new law, and they will probably make an effort
to have it repealed. They claim that it is a
positive injury to their business, but do not
recognize the fact that it is a measure for the
preservation of human life. When a boiler has
been in use a number of years it
CORRODES ON THE INSIDE
and in some weak spots in the plate it becomes:
very thin. This continues for some time until
the pressure is too great, and the boiler bursts.
"The boilers of a boat have to be inspected
every year, A boat may arrive in the city just
about the time the inspection is due. The river
may be falling, and the7 want , to get out as
soon as -possible with a tow. Naturally they
want to getthe inspection over as soon as they
can, and in most cases it takes but a short time
for us to do the worki Under the new law.
when a boiler is over 10 years old, we have to
have it drilled and riveted np again. With a
large boat this will take abont a day. The
river men say that by the time we are through,
and tbey have their boilers pumped up again,
the water may be too low for them to go ont."
The result of the inspection of the Scout's
boilers showed the sheets to be 25-100 of an
inch thick. They were when built 20 and had
only been worn 1-100 of an inch. The.
hydrostatic test snowed a pressure of 187 pounds
to the square inch, and tbe engineer was allowed
a working pressure of 125 pounds.
MAKING ANOTHER KICK.
The river men are also going to agitate the
repeal of tbe law prohibiting them from carry
ing empty oil barrels on steamboats. Captains
Cox and Chancellor, of the up river packets,
say they are losing hundreds of dollars by the
prohibition. They have been doing a good
trade carrying the barrels between this city
and all points up the Monongahela. The rail
roid companies are now getting this business
and charge over twice tbe rates on the boats.

explosions in the holds of steamboats. Empty
oil barrels generate a hydro carbon gas, which
if gathered in sufficient quantity will run along
the decks of a boat until it reaches her boilers.
Then there is an explosion. i

getting over the law by bavins some water put

PARDONED .FR0JOHE PEN.
John Powell, of the Amalgamated Associa
tion, to be Released To-Day.
The pardon of John Powell, who is serv
ing a term in the Western Penitentiary,
was well received by the members of the
Amalgamated Association, of which he was
a prominent member. Mr. Powell will leave
the Institution to-day, having served six years
of a nine years' sentence for felonious assault
The pardoned man was a member of Brad
dock lodge, now defunct. He and two others
were charged with entering an old man's house
at Turtle Creek for the purpose of robbery,
but were detected by the owner, who was as
saulted and badly beaten. Three men were
arrested and tried before Judge Klrkpatrick
and sentenced to nine years' imprisonment.
Evidence was brought out at the trial that
Powell had been in William Reese's bonse on
Liberty street, on the night of the assault, and
could not possibly have been implicated in the
Nothing was done in tbe matter by the Amal
gamated Association or any labor organization
until last July, when the case, was bronght up
at a meeting of the Trades Assembly. John
Phillips, of the Window Glass Workers' Asso
ciation and L. A. 300, E. of L., and Secretary
Martin were appointed a committee to investi
trato and bring the case before the Pardon
Board. They succeeded in getting tbe
signatures of eight of the jurymen who
convicted him, the others being dead,
recommending the pardon. They also
obtained a letter from Judge Eirkpatrick,
the only claim made in the proceedings being
that the sentence was unusually severe. All'
his friends, however, believe he Is innocent,
(secretary Martin expressed himself as very
well pleased with the result and will endeavor
to get the man a position in one of tbe mills.
The pardon will, arrive this morning and
Powell will be a free man at noon.
EMMA ABBOTT AS NORMA TO-NIGHT.
To-Morrow Last Day of the Opera.
To-night for the first time in many years
Pittsburgers will have 'an opportunity of
hearing Bellini's greatest work, "Norma."
The opera contains more beautiful music
than any other composition by this great
writer. The great "Casta Diva," the in
spiring "Druids Chorus," the magnificent
duet "IolJbn Son,".the famous trio "Wilt
Thou Fly to Rome With He," the grand
duet "Hear Me, Norma," and the grand
finale "Oh, Thou Art My Father," are some
of the gems of this famous work. To-morrow,
Saturday; the .last day of the opera,
Emma Abbott will sing at both the'matinee
and night performances. The latest Gilbert
and Sullivan opera, "The Yeomen of the
Guard, or The Merryman and His Maid,"
will be sung at the matinee, with Emma
Abbott and the entire companv in the cast.
And at night the farewell performance, the
tuneful opera, "Bohemian Girl," will be
given; and it is safe to say that no other
company renders the music of this standard
opera Xd well as does the Emma Abbott
Company. Miss Abbott will appear as
Ariine, and every member of the company
will take part in the closing performance.
As an extra attraction for Saturday night,
and in response to the many requests re
ceived dqring the week. Miss Abbott has
kindly consented to give her famous rendi
tion of "The Last Eose of Summer." J

EXPELLED FOE COWARDICE.
A Prominent Lodge of tbe Amalgamated
Association Is Fired by President Welbe
O'Xeary Lodge No. T, of the Amalgamated
Association, has" been expelled for cow
ardice, and President Weihe has revoked
their charter. This lodge was composed of
iron and steel workers employed at the
Wheeling steel plant at Ben wood, W. Va.
The trouble at this mill will be remem
bered. Last June the firm refused to
recognize the Amalgamated Association
scale, but signed one presented
by the Local Assembly of N. T. U. 217, K. of
L. This scale was rejected by the amalgamated
men who claimed it was lower than their scale.
The firm finally refused to recognize any labor
organization, but announced that they would
employ all the men needed at their workvas
individuals, and pay as high wages as are paid
at any other mill.
At a meeting of O'Leary lodge it was decided
to accept the proposition, but a number of men
voted against it. A meeting of the Executive
Board of the Second district was held and the
following action was taken:
Resolved, That the strike be declared off. and
the Executive Committee request the Preslaent
of tbe National Lodge to revoke the charter or
said lodge for cowardice, there being no attempt
made by the company to start tbe mill or to bring
other men to work In said mill. It being a clear
fase of ' "squeal" before they were hurt, there be
ng no excuse for them, not one of them, being
able to say they were In straitened circumstances.
Kesolved, That the members or said lodge who
voted to continue the strike be granted cards by
the National Lodge and be commended for the
part they took In trying to maintain the rules of
the association, and that we condemn the aotlon
of those voting to go to work for the cowardice
shown by them during the. strike, and that their
names beput on record.
Tbe desired action was taken this week by
President Weihe, and the charter of the lodge
has been recalled. The members of thelodre
who voted against returning to work will be
granted cards which will entitle them to work
in any Amalgamated Association mill in the

If the rumor of the proposed consolidation of
the three large steel rail mills In Illinois North
Chicago Boiling Mill Company, Which includes
South Chlcagomllls, Joliet Steel Company and the
Union Steel Company materializes. It will simply
make the light for orders between tbe consolidated
firms and their more fortunate competitors more
keen In the future than It has been In tbe past. It
will reduce competition In that State, Illinois, to
a minimum, and therefore leave the State untram
meled and free within Its borders to compete with
outsiders for the trade. Whether this proposed
gigantic combine, backed nn by a capital stock ot
(25,000,000, will outrival Its most formidable com
petitor, the Edgar Thomson, remains to be seen,
since the latter has such a great advantage over
the former In the single but Important Item of
Bather than advance tbe selling price of their
product, the consolidation (unless a syndicate of
all steel mills Is formed) will tend to reduce It, as
It is patent on the face of the project that the new
deal, with that shrewd business man, O. W. Pot
ter, at Its head, will cut deep In order to secure
the trade. And right here is where tbe workmen
are most affected and Interested tn the proposed
new order or things. This will apply to the work
men In all tbe steel rail mills East and West. It
competition Is carried on to the extent that the
combine would Indicate, It means diminished
profits, no matter what new appliances or im
provements are Introduced, and, as Is customary,
the workmen will be drawn upon to make up the
difference by reducing their wages.
By some this may be considered allttle previous,
but long experience In trade matters has taught
us that nothing short of a thorough consolidation
on tbe part of the men In all the mills, and the es
tablishment of a minimum price for their work,
will prevent the reducing of their wages as here
in Indicated, if the proposed combine is consum
mated time will tell how near we are In our pre
dictions. In the meantime the workmen will do
well to keep an eye to the leeward.
THE GLASS TKADE.

Affairs In tbo Country.
The official report of the condition of the
glass trade compiled by the Ohio Valley
Budget is appended: There are 1,081 win
dow glass pots in operation In the country and
228 are idle. This is an increase of 26 idle pots
compared with last week's report, which is due
to the burning of the factory of Stewart,
Estep & Co., at Marion, Ind.
Tbe Chicago bottle house has suspended
operations owing to the" falling in of a cap.
This factory may not be able to resume until
tbe next fire. The flin: trade is dull in tbe

is good at Tarentum and East Liverpool.

Significant Improrements Being Made Along
tbe Low Grade Division of the Alle
gheny Taller Railroad.
The Low Grade division of the Allegheny
Valley Railroad was originally intended to
be a great freight line across the mountains.
J. Edgar Thomson once conceived the idea
of extending the snrvey of this route across
the? country north of the Allegheny to
Before the oil pipe lines were constructed
a vast amount of oil was sent East over this
route, the Allegheny Valley Railroad low;
grade division connecting with tha Philadel
phia and Erie Railroad at Driftwood, although
the Allegheny Valley Railroad crews took the
oil trains as far as RenoTO, on the Philadelphia
and Erie, and from there crews took them via
Wllllamsport and Harrlsbnrg to Philadelphia.
It is significant now that all improvements
made on the low grade division are made of
double strength. Bridges are built to bear
twice the burden old ones do, and with room
for double tracks. The freight traffic just now
is light on the upper end of the division, so
that many people think that some time in the
future tbe Pennsylvania Railroad Company
may utilize the line for freight purposes. Its

with tbe main line of the P. R. R. that it is
