THIS CI1T AND TEXAS
A Lono Star Citizen Tells of Local
Products Wanted South,
SUGGESTING A FAIEER EXCHANGE.

IN SPITE OP THE INTER-STATE LAWS.
Mr. A. F. Dignowity, of San Antonio,
Tex., is in the city, having in view exchange
of commodities between that section and
this, and he says there are two ways of re
ducing the great Democratic majority in his
State, one by supplanting the Democrats
there by good, substantial .Republicans
from over-abundant Republican centers
here, and another by more freely commin
gling our commercial interests with those in
Texas. Said he: "You have surpluses of
oil, iron, etc, which can readily be ex
changed for cheap lands, beef, sheep and
wool and Texas climate thrown in, all of
which can be brought about by square Seal
ing and plain talk.
Mr. Dignowity was born in Arkansas,
and, being related to the celebrated traveler
we have all heard of. gravitated early in
life to Texas, where he has resided 40
years, and he professes to know what it
needs in the way of development. Forty
years' residence ought to be sufficient to
cive him an idea at least, and he gives some
prices of commodities ruling there that
should be sufficient to afford food for com
SOME SOT7THEKX FIGURES.
He states that cut iron nails, which here
sell at about the same price as good bar
iron, sell in San Antonio for 5 cents a
pound; barbed wire at i4 cents for black,
and 5yi cents for galvanized; smooth wire
at 3 cents, black, and 4J4 cents galvanized;
fat beef on foot 1 cent per pound; fat mutton
sheep at $2 per head; good wool
it 18 to 22 cents per pound;
goat skins and beef hides, dry, at
8;10c per pound; land which sells in
Ohio and Indiana at $60 to 5125 per acre, at
53 and 55 an acre in Texas, while corn in
the Lone Star State goes begging at 25 cents
per bushel. The pressing Southwestern ob
ject is to facilitate the exchange of the com
modities mentioned for the products of our
Mr. Dignowity states that the great diffi
culty under which Texans labor is the im
mensity of railway freights, greater by far
than the rates at which our manufacturer
and merchants formerly complained. For
instance, if San Antonio shippers want to
send freight to San Francisco, they find it
cheaper to ship all the way to Hew York in
order to get rates. They save by shipping
this roundabout way SO cents per hundred
in competition with the direct route. He
adverted to Mr. Huntington's strictures on
the action of the Texas Legislature, which in
sists on regulating rates of freight, and says
that Mr. Huntington's strictures are not
THET HAD TO COME DOWlf.
The railway companies once charged 10
cents per mile fare, but the Legislature re
duced it to 3 cents on railways that run
through well-settled country, and he says
the increased travel has reimbursed the
companies. The railway companies have
the power to run their" roads where they
please by paying for the property taken;
but Mr. Dignowity states that although
they have undoubtedly, to a great extent,
made the State, yet their demands are ex
tortionate. Capital is coming into the State, and it
is followed by labor, which, considering the
cost of living, fares much better than here.
The Standard Oil Company controls the
petroleum trade of Texas, and refined sells
at 2540 cents per gallon, three to five
times wh.i. it sells for here.
Mr. Dignowity proposes to spend some
time with his friends, S. A. and M. John
ston, Esqs., and he thinks he can show how
"the bloody chasm" may be bridged and
the profits of intercourse be made to pay for

How a Cable Car Brought a Frightened
Horse to Bay.
Just as a cable car was turning into the
loop building of the Citizens' Company, at
the corner of Fenn avenue and Cecil alley,
yesterday afternoon at 4:15, a frightened
horse attached to one of Danziger's dry
goods wagons dashed across the street in
front of the car. The gripman reversed his
lever and threw back both brakes, but the
momentum of the car caused it to strike the
horse full on the side, felling him like
The animal fell so that one hind leg was
just covered by the car guards, scraping off
the flesh. Then the car stopped. The ani
mal was gotten up in a few minutes, and
the wagon or shafts were found to be
scarcely scratched. A runaway had simply

WARNED IN TIME.
Soger O'Mnra Tells Why There Were No
bares Cracked Here Daring the Recent
Processions and Excitement.
Some comment has been evoked by the
migration of gamblers westward, and some
people suppose they are going to Chicago in
the belief that, in the steam arising from the
bubbling of the political 'caldron, Mayor
Boche, of Chicago, will not be able to see
The fact that Assistant Superintendent
O'Mnra recently issued special orders to the
police, and at the same time eave notice to
bankers, express companies, etc., to keep an
eye out lor thieves and safe blowers, led to
the belief in some quarters that th two
cities here were suffering from n special in
vasion of the chevalier a'industrie class,
who neither toil, nor spin in the approved
Mr. O'Mara was asked if he knew of any
thing special on the thieves' carpet, and he
said there was nothing, except that the
recent Presidental inauguration had a ten
dency to draw the gentry to "Washington,
and. in going there, they had specially good
fields to work, caused by processions on
Washington's birthday, and on returning
St. Patrick's Day processions gave.them
another chance to harvest. In Consequence,
all people who would be most likely to suf
fer were notified to be on guard.
The result was as expected. There
were some safes blown, ana some
pockets picked, but this city did not suffer
to any great extent. The safe blowing was
evidently done by apprentices or small fry,
as the safes blown did not contain enough
money to justify expense and risk, and mas
ter workmen do not blow safes nnless they
know they contain enough money to justify
the risk and labor. Nor do pickpockets who
rate high in the profession trouble them
selves with small game. They watch people
who take large sums of money from' the
bank and relieve them of it.
DR. PENNI'S LDCE.
After a Series of Misfortunes Ho Makes an
Dr. "William L. Fenny, heretofore one of
the most unlucky men in this section of
the country, seems to have struck the
turning point His many misfortunes
have been published, but the most recent
one was his arrest for alleged complicity in
the Murdoch bunko game, of which he was
honorably acquitted. His luck changed
when he won a suit for damages against De
tective Perkins recently, and brought suit
against Alderman Cassidy for 530,000 dam
ages. The doctor's latest success is the invention
of an underground electric wire conduit for
which he received a patent last week. Sev
eral capitalists have already offered to pur
chase the patent, but the doctor declines to
give their names or the amounts offered.
The invention is a combination of wires
insulated in glass, and can be buried in the
ground and connections made with every
building on the streets for telegraph, ligh
ing and telephone service.
SHE WAS EXHAUSTED.
A Convalescent's Big Walk and Its Sad
About 8 o'clock last evening Mrs. Mary
Krouse fell to the pavement in an insen
sible condition in front of Alderman Por
ter's office on Butler street. She was car
ried into the Alderman's office, where
medical attention was administered and
Mrs. Kxouse stated that she was dis
charged from an Allegheny hospital as
cared. She desired to go to Sharpsburg,
but having no funds or friends in the city
she attempted to walk from Allegheny to

Krouse with the necessary requisites and
sent her happy on her way to Sharpsburg.
A LONG, LUCK! SEARCH.
The Girl Who Came From Germany Seek

The young girl, Gertrude Kecktenwald,
who arrived in the city on Friday, found
the uncle for whom she was searching. He
was not Dr. N. Recktenwald, however, but
N. Becktenwald, a coal miner, living on
Mt. Oliver. Mr. Eecktenwald called at 1202
Penu avenue, yesterday, and took his niece
to his home.
The young girl's parents died in Germany,
and, having no other friends, she came to
America alone to look for her uncle. She
knew he had been in Pittsburg for 20 years,
but did not know just where he lived or at
what he was employed. ,

THE REFLECTIONS OP 20 MINUTES
As to the Difficulties andFanforBejrinners
ITS BUSINESS ADVENT AND FUTURE
The interesting event of the week in bus
ness and scientific circles was the introduc
tion of the phonograph. One of the first of
these machines to be put in use. was placed
in The Dispatch editorial and reportorial
rooms. It is too early yet to determine
whether they will prove an assured business
success, but there, is lots of fun with them in
"When the phonograph was first talked of
predictions were plenty as to the many uses
for it. Prominent among them was the dis
placement of shorthand writers and amanu
enses; but experience may check too ex
alted hopes on this score. The processes of
working the phonograph treadle, such as is
attached to a sewing machine, and conduct
ing the mental operations are not managed
simultaneously with ease.
The art of composition will have to change
materially if it is to be conducted on the
spur of the moment through a mouthpiece,
instead of by the slow processes of cogita
tion with fingers upon the reflective fore
head and pen in hand. "Wit and wisdom
will scarcely coruscate from the gray matter
of the brain to keep time to the swift revolu
tion of the wheel, which runs this new ma
chine. But, leaving these considerations to
determine themselves hereafter, a few points
as to the business phase of the enterprise
may be of interest
THE FITTSBOBG PBOMOTEE.
The chief promoter of both these instrn-j
ments is Mr. Jesse H. -Lippincott, a
former Pittsburger, now a resident of New
York. Mr. Lippincott was one of the for
tunate sextette who took hold of the Bell
telephone at its introduction in Pittsburg,
eight years ago, each one of them making
out of it about 570,000 within six months
from the day they took hold of it.
Mr. Lippincott paid to Edison from
$500,000 to 5750,000 for the sole right to use
the phonograph and graphopbone. Subse
quently he instituted branch companies in
different cities, first among which was Pitts
burg, his old home. The capitalization of
the subordinate companies is quite heavy,
the Pittsburg company's capital stock
amounting to $750,000,or almost the original
price of tho entire phonograph rights.
This stock was sold at about 50 cents on the
dollar, or $25 per share, par value $50. The
takers recognized that the issue was specu
lative; and, it is understood that the chief
part of the stock has been put into .a blind
pool and is there awaiting the commercial
development of the instrument "Whether
it is to prove a bonanza, or, as one of the
promoters described it, "a song or a ser
mon," remains for the luture to show.
Meanwhile the phonograph jtself is cer
tainly what Artemus Ward would call "an
amoo'sin' little cuss."
At the outstart one hardly knowB whether
to get mad or be pleased with it. Tbe
function of working the treadle, as on a
sewing machine, may be easy to the femin
ine world, but it is very difficult for men
who are unaccust .med to it "When they
sit down to the machine they usually have
their mind made up as to what they want to
say, but as soon as they have to start the
treadle and then try to talk, they are
brought to a full stop. The initial impres
sion of the graphopbone, therefore, is that
whenever a man is constructed with his
brains in his foot, the machine will be an
immediate success, but scarcely before.
"With experience this difficulty passes
THE BEAX. BEVELATION.
The most astounding development to a
beginner is the revelation of his ownToice.
In nine cases out of ten it is nothing like
what he had expected. He is usually
ready to swear that the .machine is a fraud.
If he had supposed that he was the possessor
of a beautiful tenor, the chances are he will
turn up with a piping treble or a deep bass.
At the same time the mechanical tact re
mains that every sound must be recorded
accurately. The explanation of this phe
nomenal difference between the results of
the phonograph and the speaker's previous
impressions of his voice is that most opera
tors begin in a strange and stagy way. They
are full of formalisms and speak in a' differ
ent tone of voice entirely from that which
they use in ordinary conversation. "When
they acquire more familiarity with the in
strument and talk in a natural tone of
voice, they will undoubtedly get results
more easily identified. "When this happy
period arrives, the uses of the phonograph
will be numerous.
"Whatever doubt may exist as to the extent
of the use of the phonograph for business pur
poses, there is no doubt that it can be imme
diately employed as a toy. To produce
funny dialogues, music and conversation
extemporized into it, will afford a pleasant
evening's entertainment. It can also serve
to receive the .messages of visitors, when
lawyers, doctors and other professional pen
pie or housekeepers are out, when friends
A serious thought suggests .itself as to
whether offensive remarks spoken into the
phonograoh are actionable, and if so, in
what form; whether they fall under the cate
gory of libel or slander, or either. Hardly
can they be libel, since they are neither
written nor printed; nor yet slander, since
they are spoken to no one, but into an inan
imate 'object. Yet no agency of lib$l or
slander could be more effective than this
new machine, for. while mere words pass
away into the empty air, this cylinder lasts
as Jong as uie owner uiuv cuuube iu preserve
it, and produces with almost painful fidelity
every note and inflection of the voice which
is uttered into it.
A LITERARY BEFLECTION.
Think of what treasures might have been
left to us had the ancients known of the
phonograph. Imagine the speech of Marc
Antony, the poems of Homer, the debates of
Cicero the eloquence of Gratlan or Pitt or
Burke handed down to us with" every in
tonation of the- voice perfect The realms
which are opened up to the fancy in this
phase of the question are illimitable. The
thought, of course, arises that if the phono
graph had existed in the times of the above
mentioned, their orations and their essays
might have possessed far from the finish
which they are now invested with. They
would doubtless have founiVit as difficult to
think and express themselves in perfect
style extemporaneously and working the
treadle as people in our days do. Addi
sonian English would certainly have been
at a discount; and it is impossible to fancy
the smooth couplets of Pope composed while
sitting over a phonograph. The weird, wild
possibilities ol dealing with the voices of
the dead are sure to present themselves to
the imagination. The voices of departed
ones can be preserved in families for years,
and in dark rooms at the dead of night may
be given out by the phonograph in a volume,
and with a precision to startle the whole
household. Could ghosts but materialize
the effect would be hardly half so startling
as the use of the phonograph in this way.
Hereafter the American would-be aristo
crat need not save tgfe pictures of his ances
tors to gaze down upon him from the wall.
The actual voices of moldering generations
gone can inspire him, singly or in chorus.
The General, beloved by his men, wholdies
upon the battle field, may still urge his le
gions on to the assault, even, as it will
locally be remembered, how the celebrated
and lamented Tenor O'Dwyer used to assert
he was hired by the Khedive of Egypt for a
DUCATS WHAT THEY "WANT.
However, the promoters of the phono
graph are not much concerned about the
romance of the thing.- It is, of course, the
dollars, which will be the outcome, that in
terest them. As to these the public is in a
state ot unconcemand uncertainty. There
was no great rush for the stock because of
the fear that the machines might amount to
no more than a toy. Some of the same
doubts still exist, so that the removal of
of the stock temporarily from the market
seems to he pretty well suited to the situa
tion. If the phonograph and graphophone
should be a success, however, lookout for a
host of imitators, infringers and claimants,
such as sprang np in respect to the tele
phone, the telegraph, the sewing machine
and other similar inventions.
To lawyers, doctors and newspaper men
the machine will unquestionably prove an
advantage, if it be possible to compose rap
So far the invention is decidedly interest
ing, and its advent in the city in the past
week has been a source of considerable
amusement and experimenting. About 200
machines are now here, and many more are
expected in a few days. The rental of the
machine is $10 a year, and a copying com
pany, if required, writes out by typewriter
what is spoken to the phonograph by the
customers for $350 per annum more. The
The little wax cylinders cost 3 cents each,
and, as a tolerable specimen of the work, it
may be said that this account was spoken

Some Crooks Work Two Hours On a Jew
elry Store, but Get Nothing.
An attempt was made early yesterday
morning to rob the jewelry store at No. 107
Federal street, Allegheny, but the thieves
were frightened away after working about
two hours to effect an entrance. They had
an auger and bored a number of holes
through a wooden partition in the rear of
the store, and finally succeeded in making
a hole two feet square. They covered it up
with a cloth in order to prevent any person
from noticing it ,
The hole was discovered in the morning,
but, as nothing was disturbed in the store,
it is supposed the thieves were frightened
away before they could complete the job.
Chief of Police Kirschler said last night
that he believes there are two strange crooks
in town, and he intends to capture them if
possible. Last night he issued orders to

on the streets late at night who cannot give

There were no new developments in the
contemplated equity suit against the Mo

McKee, Henry Sproul, A. J. Lawrence, J.
C. Fisher, George O. Morgan, Harriet Mor
gan, James A. Chambers and Jeannette E.
McKee to make null and void the issue of
5450,000 worth of stock which was to have
been placed upon the market "Until the
service of the bill there .seems to be a good
deal of delicacy in talking about it
An effort was made last night to find
some of the interested parties. Mr. H.
Sellers McKee was caught at the Union sta
tion, just as he was getting on board a train
for Philadelphia. Mr. McKee said:
"I know nothing whatever about the con
templated case, any more than I have seen
in the papers. I am not in it in any way
as yet, so far as I know." ,
Mark "Watson, the PresidenFof the com
pany, was at his office, and wouldn't talk;
and inquiry at his house last evening
brought the reply that he was in Ohio.
John H. Dalzell, a director, was also out of
the city. James S. Atterbury was in bed
shortly after supper, and objected to being
interviewed in his robe de nnit George T.
Oliver was not at home. B. F. Jones was
in New York, and the others were too mod

Thomas Atterbury, Sr., said:
THE ONLY STATEMENT.
I have not read or heard anything concern
ing the proceedings commenced, but I know
alt about the case. It is nothing more or less
than a scheme. James Chambers and Sellers
McKee, who are at the head of it are after
money, but they will not get 1 cent They have
been sending us notices that they would go
into the court if something was not done, and
we told them to go ahead. We are not ashamed
or afraid to tell the court or the pnblic all
about the transaction with the Manufacturers',
Water Company. It was one of the best deals
ever made for our company. There are al
ways two sides to a story, and when we print
our side it will placo the matter in a different
light. We have nothing to conceal, but would
prefer towaW until the case comes before
court before making a statement. Jim Cham
bers and Sellers McKee will not make anything
out of this matter. The first thing they know
they will have a bill filed against them in the
shape of a suit for slander.
The defendants named in the coming bill
are M. "W. "Watson, B. F. Jones, John H.
Dalzell, Thomas B. Atterbury, J. S. Atter
bury, B. F. Jones, J. G. Walter, Jacob
Henrici, Daniel McKee, C. J. Schttltz and
John Moorhead. V
The history of the case, as contained in
the narrative of the proposed bill, goes back
to July, 1886, the date of the organization
of the Manufacturers' "Water Company.
This was a corporation formed by George
T. Oliver and others who had disputed with
the Monongahela "Witter Company about
rates, and had determined to create a com
petitor. President Mark "W. "Watson, of
the Monongahela Company, acting in behalf
of the company, made an agreement on
March 15, 1886, with the manufacturing
company, by which that company's stock
and franchises were to be translerred to the
Monongahela Company. The Monongahela
Company,' in consideration of this transfer,
was to pay $1,500 cash for 300 shares of
Monongahela Company stock, and in addi
tion supply Oliver Bros. & Co. and H. B.
Scott & Co., in which the Olivers are in
terested, with water at certain rates for 20
''A GRAVE AXLEOATIOir.
This agreement, the bill charges, was not
consummated by President "Watson on be
half of the Monongahela "Water Company.
Instead, he fraudulently combined with
John H. Dalzell and J. S. Atterbury, two
of the stockholders, and B. F. Jones and
Thomas B. Atterbury. two of the directors,
to take and hold for themselves the Manu
facturers' "Water Company's stock and fran
chises. In pursuance of this design, they
caused the property to be assigned to
Thomas B. Atterbury, and paid the $1,500
out of their own money and the 300 shares
out of their own stock, at that time valued
at $45 per share. They also claimed to own
the entire stock ot the Manufacturers'
"Water Company, without, as the plaintiffs
believe, having paid any other considera
tion therefore than that mentioned 15,000
Then.the bill will allege, with corrupt in
tent, they caused the directors, on August
30, 1888, to call a,meeting of stockholders to
vote on an increase in the stock from $998,
200 to $1,448,200. 'The stockholders ap
proved the increase on November 2 by a
Yote of 25,488 out of 39,928 shares. They
next had a proposition, approved to buy the
iranchise of the Manufacturers' Water
Company for $450,000, payable in stock of
the Monongahela Company at par 18,000
shares at $25 each and then issue the new
stock to the venders, retaining to them
selves 6,000 shares and apportioning on the
company's books the remaining 12,000
among themselves and other stockholders.
TOO ONE-SIDED; THEY THrjJK.
The plaintiffs were not present at the
meeting on November 2. They have never
assented to the apportionment of any part
o( tue iz,uuu snares, xney appealed to ine
hoard of directors for redress, out the board.
on January 31, 1889, refused it, onlv one
member John Moorhead favoring them.
They hold altogether over 3,350 shares.
They ask the court to declare that the in
crease of capital stock was fictitious and
illegal; that the property of the Manu
facturers' Company was purchased by M."W.
Watson in trust for the Monongahela
"Water Company, and belongs to it, sub
ject only to the payment to M. W. Watson,
B. F. Jones, John H. Dalzell, T.-B. Atter
bury and J. S. Atterbury of 1,500 and 300
shares of stock that the apportionment of
the increased stock is null and void.
The plaintiffs petition for a repudiation
of an increase of stock from $998,200 to
$1,448,200. The court is asked to perpetu
ally enjoin the company from paying any
dividends upon the 18,000 shares, issuing
certificates of this stock, or selling, trans
ferrins: or. assigning any portion of the 18.-
.000 shares standing to their credit on the
company's books, and to give such lurther
relief as court may deem equitable.
A PARDONED CONVICT!
Praiso for Officials and Condemnation for
John B. Hughes, a pardoned convict ot
the Western Penitentiary, left last evening
for his home in Osceola, Clearfield county.
Hughes was sentenced to a two years' term
for shooting a Hungarian who, he claimed,
insulted his wife. He served 13 months
and Vias then pardoned.
In speaking of the institution he says he
was treated very kindly by the officials and
that he never saw anything that was
crooked. The charges made against Dr.
Maharneke, he says, were overdrawn. He

worse reputation than they now have, say

A Sunday Fight on- Kellglon Which Mar
Terminate Fntnlly An American Me
chanic's Very Offensive Remark.
Detectives Eichenlant and Glenn, of Al
legheny, yesterday arrested Michael Shee
han, of Grant alley.on a charge of felonious
assault and battery. He is accused of
knocking.Charles McKelvy down, and in
falling the latter received injuries about
the head that may result in death. The as
sault occurred last Sunday, but the Chief of
Police was not notified until yesterday and
immediately ordered the arrest of Shehan.
The prisoner is a driver for De Haven &
Co., and was found at the works shortly
after noon. He was taken to the lockup,
where bail for his appearance at a hearing
was offered, but, owing to the dangerous
condition of the injured man, it was re
fused. Sheeban was committed to jail for
30 days to await the result of McKelvy's
The prisoner says he was walking along
Beaver avenue when he heard McKelvy
say he was an American Mechanic and had!
no love for the Catholics. He also stated,
looking at Sheehan, that all "Micks"
should go to hot quarters. ' The prisoner
asked whether he intended the remark for
his benefit, and McKelvy replied in the
affirmative. Sheehan then hit him ablotv
and he fell, striking his 'head on the curb
stone and fracturing his skull. Shteban
walked on, and says he did not know the
blow wouli result seriously, or he would
have given himself up the next day.
McKelvey lives at 206 Fulton street, and
the physicians who are attending him say
they have but slight hopes for his recovery.
AS TO DAN AND LIGB.
The Former Greatly Missed by Many Call
ers at the White Home.
"There is one man about the White House
who is greatly missed, and he is Dan
Lamont," said a Bepublican politician at
the Monongahela House yesterday. "Dan
had the happy knack of divining just what
people wanted to know, and he gave the in
formation promptly. His perfect good na-.
ture and genial smile were appreciated by
correspondents and public men.
"Thus far 'Lige Halford has not been
much of a success. He is bright enough,
but he does not seem fitted to fill his diffi
cult position. It is to be hoped he will im
prove after he has had a little more experi
ence. "I remember," continued the same poli
tician, "when I was in Indiana dnring the
late campaign, I met Joseph B. Cheadle, a
Bepublican member of Congress. Joe is an
editor also, and when he was making his
first canvass the opposition sheet came out
one day and asked, 'What can Joe Cheadle
do, anyhow, if he should go to Congress?'
In the next issue of his paper Joe made
this reply: 'He can keep sober;' and he did.
He was re-elected to Congress, and I helped
to boost him."
THE FIRST GAME.
A Iiawreneevllle Citizen Opens the New
The spring weather of yesterday made
John Thomas, of Lawrenceville, sigh for
the merry crack of the baseball as it leaves
the bat, and the hnzzahs of a crowd of spec
tators. He got the craze so bad that he
went home and procured a bat, and started
out to raise a crowd and have a game.
While he was passing William Quartz,
who was standing on Twenty-sixth street,
the latter asked if he was "going to open
As the words rolled out of Quartz's
mouth, Thomas evidently thought they were
high-curved inshoots, and raised his bat to
knock out a home run. He made one
strike, and, somehow or other, the bat'eame
in contact with Quartz's head. Thomas
started on a run for first, but a policeman
captured him before he reached the bag.
At the hearing before Umpire Porter last
night Thomas gave $500 bail for trial.

A WORKINGMAN'S SACRIFICE.
He Sustnlns Fatal Injuries In Order to Save
Yesterday morning a man named Morority,
who is employed at Carnegie, Phipps &
Co.'s Thirty-third street mill, met with a
serious accident Morority was engaged in
unloading pig metal from a car, and just as
he was about to throw a piece out he noticed
a man .walking by.
The heavy bar would surely strike him,
and in order to save the man, Morority held
on to the metal. Both went out the car to
gether. The pedestrian was knocked out of
the way and Morority sustained such serious
injuries that will probably cause his death.
The injured man was taken to a surgeon's
office, and on examination it was found he
had fractured his spine, besides being badly
injured internally. Morority is 29 years
old and lives on Fortieth street

Wheeling yesterday to take some measure
of relief for the nailers at Bellaire, Laugh
