THE PITTSBUKG- DISPATCH, FPJDAY, APRIL 5, 1889.
EACH FOR HIMSELF.
Splendid Building Project That Will
' Catch the Average Man.
fiEAL ESTATE REVOLUTIONIZED.
A Homestead Plan toBuj Land and Erect
Ten Thousand Homes.
SUCCESSFULLY TESTED IN THE EAST
Pittsbnrg and Allegheny will, in a few
days, have perfected a co-operative organi
zation unlike anything heretofore tried in
this State, and before proceeding to tell
what it is it may be briefly stated that its
object is similar to that horse sense which
which would be supposed to impel three
families to pool their issues and buy a bar
rel of onions for 5150 and divide, instead
of each paying 51 60 for a bushel. '
It is often noticed that the wealthy can
combine with facility and profit, but the
poor very rarely, in this country at least,
and the corporation noted proposes to en
dow the poor with the same power that the
rich possess. Thejncorporators are Morton
Hunter, Esq., solicitor; Frederick Muegle,
J. T. Geisinheimcr, J E. McCrickarr,
Theodore Doerflmger. George P. Letsche,
George "W. Crawford, John "W. Bell, J. S.
Foster, J. "W. Bnrford and Albert Pafen

affair in appearance.
AN IXTEEESTI1TG TALK.
In answer to inquiries of one of them
The Pittsburg Homestead Co-operative As
sociation is a corporation organized on a plan
which, plainly speaking, means that all its
members work together for the accomplish
ment of its business purposes; and is strictly a
mutual corporation, as its members mutually
contribute to its capital, which is employed
for their mutual benefit. The purposes lor
which it was chartered are the buying, selling,
holding, leasing and improving of lands, tene
ments and buildings.
The corporation was first suggested with a
view to afford a better opportunity to people
of small means of procuring their own home
steads, and the conclusion arrived at, that
such an opportunity could be better obtained
by an association composed of all such people,
w"ho by small periodical payments within their
ability, to a common capital, would in a quicker
time get better homes at a cheaper price than
bv their own individual efforts. The feasibility
of this plan had been demonstrated in New
York City by a few workmen organizing an as
sociation composed ot kUOO uf their fellow
workmen, who each paid SI SO a week into the
association, and in the course of a year, bought
a large tract of land in tbe village of Alt.
Vernon, a suburb of New York, on the New
Haven Railroad, and furnished homes to all
their members and many others who subse
quently joined them.
This homestead plan Is to be put in opera
tion here by this corporation. Tbe periodical
payments have been fixed at $1 per week, so as
to make it available to peopleof limited means.
The land is to be bought in the city of Pitts
burg or Allegheny, or suburbs, on the line of
some speedy public means of travel, as near the
present built-up portions of tbe city as possible,
in such location as the members may de
termine, whenever sufficient capital has been
acquired. On its purunase one lot is to be con
veyed by deed to each member. The member
is to obtain
HIS LOT AT ACTUAL COST.
The corporation also undertakes to build
houses on all the lots, at cost price, on like easy
The membership is intended to be very large,
it being estimated that it will run up to 10,000.
The members have but one vote each. The
membership is not restricted, any person,
male or female, of good character, being eligi
ble. Minors, it seems, are permitted by law to
become members and make contracts with the
corporation, this being the only instance in
which it can be done. One commendable fea
ture that deserves notice is that a member can
withdraw and get his money back. This is cer
tainly the most beneficial scheme forthe better
ment of oar people of small means in its un
dertaking that has ever been introdnced here,
and with proper encouragement from tbe pub
lic in joining it, and strict attention to business
and the exercise of good judgment, onght to
result in an annex to our city of at least a thou
sand homes, and prove both a public benefit to
the city and a personal benefit to the people.
This is a novelty in real estate associations,
being the only one of the kind in this country.
It has no similarity in its organization or plan
of business to the associations known as
"homestead, loan and trust companies." It is
chartered under an entirely different act of
assembly from any other real estate corpora
tion dome business here. In the manner of
carrying on its business, it very closely re
sembles building and loan associations. Cities
like Philadelphia owe the extent to what their
improvements have reached very largely to
such enterprises as this, and this seems like a
move in the right direction, and one greatlv
needed to improve the thin settlements and
outlying districts of our city, and cannot be too
successful or have too many competitors. The
leading idea of this plan, that the people can
help themselves to homes by concentrating
their resources and efforts, is the trne one.
The principle of the power of centralization
has been recognized in most other things, but
somehow seems not to have been applied in
this direction heretofore.
A WIDE DIFFEBENCE.
There is a radical difference between the
manner proposed for doing business by this
corporation and that usually ioUowed by
building and loan associations. The money
paid in is represented by stock certificate,
and, though a holder may sell his stock, he
cannot borrow on it from the association,
the object being to accumulate with a spe
cific object and not dissipate energy by scat
tering the lund among a portion of the
members. Accordingly, they do not bor
row. "When there is money in the treasury
it will be loaned or invested so as to make
money for all, until the accumulation is
sufficient to buy a suitable tract of land.
Up to this time a member may withdraw,
but after the land is bought he simply has
a right to his lot at cost and withont any
profits going to middlemen or speculators,
the object being to enable the poor to get
homes they could never acquire singly.
"When the land is bought and paid for,
and it must be paid for as the seller must
secure bis pay or be unable to collect it sub
sequently the dues will continue to be col
lected until each man has paid in one-third
of the money necessary to build bis house.
2ot until then will there be any mortgaging,
but as soon as the 33 per cent for building is
accumuiated the association will contract at
wholesale rates, and mortgages be given the
contractors, and so the grind will go oh. If
a man does not want bis house so soon he
. can hold off until his stock is worth the
whole amount necessary to pay for the build
ings The law under which the corporation
is lormed does not allow it to go into debt.
It may lend, but must not borrow.
After the first series has run its course, it
is the purpose to start another for people
who may wish to build more expensive
bouses, and they will be allowed to pay 55
or more a week, and they can build Queen
Annes or any other kind of palaces they see
fit, but the primary object is to assist the
very poor, something after the -fashion of
the old-time "bee" or "frolic"
STRENGTH I1T XTSIOS.
The pioneers by these methods did their
heavy work, such as log rolling, house
building, etc, work that could not be done
by individual effort, and in days when the
individual had no money with which to hire
help. The promoters feel sanguine of suc
cess, and expect to revolutionize building
and loan methods, which they say are not
adequate to provide very poor people with
homes, as a man who can only save 51 a
week cannot in a lifetime secure a. leverage
in the present building associations suffi
cient to buy himself a comfortable home. A
meeting for organization has been called for
It is estimated that if 10,000 houses worth
$1,000 each, all costing 510,000,000, were
built, half of it would be labor: 55,000,000,
which would be consumed, for if not put
into this shape it would go into products
tbe making ot which add but little to the
wealth of a country and less to the comfort
of the purchasers. The argument is similar
to that of political economists, that there is
no money profit in making whisky unless
the product is sold in loreign countries.
They, in this case, look at it in the light
that a little exhilaration now and then is
"While these corporators do not express
themselves thus formally, they think the
main trouble with 'the very poor the ina
bility to save enough to form effective cap
italwill be dissipated, self-reliance cul
tivated and self-respect with it, that will in
a few years redeem many worthy poor
people from the thralldom of political task
mastera who fatten on their suffrage, and
they point to the success of the experiment
on the New Haven Railway, in New York
State, as proof that it is easy of accomplish
ment W QUIBBL1KG HERE.
The Brewer Come Out Flnt-Footed They
Will Boycott All Who Attempt to Injure
Them Some Surprise In Store.
Tfie regular monthly meeting of the Alle
gheny County Brewers' Association took
place yesterday afternoon at their new
quarters on Fourth avenue
This being the first meeting at the new
rooms, and on account of Secretary Wal
ther's illness, no notices had been sent out,
except a telephone message to each member
at 2 o'clock, and the attendance was rather
The monthly routine business was gone
through and several committees reported,
the principal one being the Campaign Com
mittee of Allegheny county, of which air.
Wainwright is Chairman. The committee
reported that the principal work being done
at present was the naturalization of would
be citizens at the expense of the association.
In addition to this, all parts of the coun
ty, but especially the rural districts, are
being flooded with anti-prohibition litera
ture, the different brewers throughout the
county acting as the agents of the commit
tee. It was decided furthermore that it
would be best toallow the Campaign Com
mittee jurisdiction oyer all matters per
taining to the active work in the campaign.
This step practically places the matter of
the proposed step against hostile firms in
the hands of this body.
President Eberhardt, in speaking to a
Dispatch reporter in regard to theproposed
step above mentioned, said: "We are now
coming out fairly and squarely against all
those who go against us, and we shall not
try to make a secret of it either."
Mr. Straub. speaking on the same sub
ject, said: "I don't care who knowsit, but
I will always fight a man in his business if
he tries to kill my business."
The above appeared to be the prevailing
sentiments among all the brewers present,
and some moves that will astonish the pub
lic are certainly under quiet discussion.
