Tlie Pedestrians Going at a
Terrific Pace.
The All Americas Defeat the Chicagos
in a Dull Game.
Pete Conway Shows Up in Old-Time
There was any amount of excitement at
the pedestrian contest in the Central rink
yesterday, the racing was terrific and pro
bably 5,000 paid ibr admission daring the
day. The building was crowded with inter
ested spectators from daylight in the morn
ing until long after midnight. Several of
the contestants had not closed their eyes in
sleep from the time of starting up to 2 o'clock
this morning.
Partizan feeling was running high all day,
not only among the pedestrians but also among
their friends i ho looked on. Long before last
nigbt-fall the crowd was in a sense broken up
into sections in the way of having their respect
ive favorites. Betting is strictly prohibited,
but the intense interest in the struggle is none
the less exciting to the spectators. All day
j esterday the pace was a killing one, .and when
it is stated, that Hegel man covered tbe first 100
miles in 16 hours and 36 minutes on the 16-lap
track sporting people will have an idea that
matters were pretty lively. So far the race has,
to put it mildly, been a desperate one; souch
so that if tbe pace is not slackened many will
fall by tbe wayside.
When daylight dawned Hegelman was in the
lead, closely pursued by Connors, "Williams,
Day and Cartwright. The first named pegged
away at a clipping gait, and many conjectured
that he would soon collapse. He showed no
signs of distress, however, nor did Connors.
Cartwright began to weary, at least he took
matters comparatively easy. Williams kept up
a vigorous gait, and by dint of pluck and steady
plodding tbe loquacious little Sammy Day got
into third place. Day never lay down in bed
for a minute. He cood-natnredly wobbled
round and round with no apparent signs of
wcaknening. Hegelman, however, displayed
good speed, and at 5:36 o'clock in the evening
he reached the "centurj" amid ringing cheers.
He was at once paid his $10. A lew minutes
later Connors reached the 100 mark ana got his
"tenner." Cartwright three miles behind
came next: then Day and then 'Messier. Each
received $10 for covering 100 miles in 24 hours.
After Hegelman had covered 1U2 miles he re
tired and took a rest of 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Connors then took the lead and held it until
midnight, when Hegelman again went to the
front. Hegelman, Connors, Day and Cart
wright were all in good condition, and showing
no signs of distress.
It was different with Noremac and Golden.
Tbe former became exceedingly feverish, and
large red spots appeared on his face and brow.
He stuck to his work gamely, however, and as
midnight approached be seemed to be getting
better. Golden needed all the coaxing
that his attendants could command to keep
him on tbe tracK. He was in bad shape all tbe
afternoon. A sleep of 20 minutes and several
presentations to him of bouquets and baskets
of fruit seemed to revive him and he easilv
scored bis 100 within the limit. Adams moved
along well and so did Messier. The latter took
a rest of two hours when he had made his 10
Undoubtedly one of the most interesting
"features of the contest is old Norman Taylor,
the "pie-eater." Norman is 59 years old and
was champion more than 20 years ago. He is a
remarkable old man, without any trainer or
money, but plenty of grit. It is rcall v aston
ishing how tbe old man speeds round the track
mile after mile without sleep and precious lit
tle refreshment. He is determined "to show
the young 'uns how to stay."
Andy Seibert, tbe Penn avenue representa
tive, Ss surprising ever body. He scored his
100 miles in great style, and he looked early
this morning as if he "ill be a stayer.
However, nobody knows what a day may
bring forth in a 112-hour race. The leaders
may "crack" at any moment, although tbey did
not look like it early this morning. Cox be
came extremely sick early yesterday and was
forced to retire. He was unable to come out
of his cot an day. Many good judges still cling
to Cartwright orNoremac as the winners at the
finish. One thing is certain, however, viz.. if
Hegelman and Connors can bold out m any
thing like their stjle of yesterday nobody will
catch them.
Connors left the track at 11:30. and his exam
ple was followed bj a dozen others. At mid
night there were only four contestants on the
track, and two of them were struggling to
reach tbe 100-mile mark before 12:45, These
two were Nolan and Mackey. The former
accomplished the task with plenty to
spare, but Alackey had an ex
citing struggle to make it He was
completely exhausted, and at 12:15 bad only
two miles to go. He registered TO at 1221, and
fell to the chair, sick at the stomach. He was
cheered on his journey and resumed his task,
which he completed, with a few minutes to
spare, and went to bed.
At 1 o'clock things brightened up and there
were about a dozen peds on the track, includ
ing Hegelman. Noremack had reappeared
feeling sick and sore. Siebert was surprising
everybody bv the vigor and stamina he was
showing. Fifteen of the contestants had
earned tbe S10 prize for the 100-mile task and a
pleasant feeling obtained. The crowd of spec
tators was large, despite the early hour of
morning. Connors reappeared on the track at
1:45 and was cheered. Hegelman was then al
most a mile ahead. of him. Golden went off
the track to have a bath at 11:45, and bad not
returned at 2 o'clock. Following was the score

Jacob Scbaefer, the champion billiard player
of this country, was in tbe city yesterday visit
ing his wife, who is ill in Allegheny. The
famous "wizard" of the cue was looking ex
tremely well, and had much to say about bil
liard matters. During a conversation he said:
"I am willing to play either Slosson or any
body else for a stake worth playing, and under
any conditions that are at all reasonable. I
don't know definitely what my summer pro
gramme will be, but my business is good in
Chicago. The billiard prospects are excellent;
the number ot good players is getting larger
every year."
The cnampion went on to say: "Eugene
Carter is a good man in tbe profession, and he
deserves a good send off on his departure for
Europe. I think he will begiven a grand bene
fit at the Madison Street Theater, New York.
All the leading experts will be present. There
will likely be a four-banded game among tbe
prominent players. When abroad Carter will
tackle Vignaux, Gamier and others."
Ihe champion left the city last evening for
the West.
Thinks It Was Fixed.
New Tobk, April a Tommy Holden, tbe
feather-weight, said to-day: "Murphy doesn't
appear to be on tbe square in our proposed
match, and I am going to turn my attention
to Tommy Warren, who is now in this city
keeping dark. 1 will fight Weir, Murphy or
Warren to a finish at 118 pounds, first come,
first served, for $1,000 or upward. I offered to
fight either Weir or Murphy in Bostci before
they went West, and offered to bet tLOOO to
SS00 thai I would win. T think that Parson
Davies had the Murphy-Weir fight fixed. I'll
call on Richard K. Fox to-day and post a for
feit to flgnt Murphy, Weir or Warren for the
championship belt and 11,000 or more, I want
that belt."

Pittibnrc'a Champions Light Onto Too der
Alie'n Men -War Horsei In Line
Knebne nnd Nichols' Hitting
Conwav'a Gpod Work.
rsrrciAi. TxxroEXM to tbk dispatch.!
St. Louis, April 8. The Pittsburg team re
turned to-day, devoid of the Rip Van Winkle
ism that marked its initial appearance last
week. Tbe old ''war horses" in the combina
tion have recovered their celerity, while the
yonng blood is fairly bristling with vigor. Pete
Conway has been pining for an opportunity to
get up against the Association champions, and
he was selected by Dun'ap to do the twirling.
Pete's arm was In splendid trim, and he deliv
ered a very speedy ball, which was sufficiently
effective to make the hits scattering. Little
Freeman, who bowled out Dunlap's men last
week, essayed the trick again to-day, and with
the exception of the first three innings, his
work was faultless. He held tbe Leaguers
down to six hits, whilo his support was not
what it should have been by any means. He
was unsteady in the beginning, and this mild
ness, coupled with some hard hitting by Kuehne
and Nichols, won the game for the visitors.
Latham and Cudworth made costly errors, but
Pittsburg was perfect except a wild throw by
In the first inning after Latham bad struck
out, Fuller was given his base on balls and
scored on O'Neill's donble to left. Freeman,
Sunday and Miller, bases on balls. Miller was
forced at second by Beckley, but Sunday
reached third. He crossed the plate onapassed
ball. In the second Smith was tendered a base
on balls, and was advanced to third by Kuehne's
hit. Kuehne stole second, and both scored on
Nichols' triple to left. Nichols attempted to
score on an infleld hit, but was caught between
the bases. Latham made a pretty muff and
Nichols got back to third, and came in a
moment later on Miller's sacrifice.
Latham's hit, a steal and O'Neill's single gave
the Browns a run in the third. Coleman
opened with a double, and "Pop" Smith waited
judiciously and was given a Dase. Kuehne hit
to center, and Cudworth misjudged it. Cole
man and Smith scored, and Kuehne took third.
He came In on Nichols' hit to left. In the
ninth Duffeo knocked the ball into the right
field seats for a home run, and this ended the
run getting. Score:

The All-Americas Defeat Anton's Team In
a Doll Game.
Bbookitc, April 8. The Chicago and All
America ball teams, which have made the
circuit of the world since last fall, played their
first game to-day since arriving home from
their famous trip. The contest was originally
intended to be played on the Polo grounds, but
as it could not be played there the managers of
tbe Spalding party hired the Brooklyn grounds
and played the game over there. The 50 cents
admission charged did not seem to strike the
Brooklyn baseball enthusiasts very favorably,
for there were only 2,684 spectators present.
Those who did pay their half dollars to see the
game did not get much for their money, for
the contest was a very weak article of base
ball. The Chicagos appeared on the field in their
old bluish gray uniforms, while the All Amer
icas were in white with a small American flag
for a belt. It was a very striking and pretty
contrast. There was little or no excitement
dnring the game. Anson and Ward were
cheered, and at times fine plays were greeted
with bursts of applause. Al Reach came all
tbe way from Philadelphia to see the game and
attend the banquet. The contest was decidedly
one sided at the start off. Baldwin was hit
hard at times, and the fielding behin d him was
very erratic. In fact, as one of the spectators
said, it seemed as though they bad not got used
to playing on shipboard. The All Americas
did by far the better work during the earlier
part of the game. The score:

LONDON, April 8. More details of the
difficulties encountered by Henry M. Stan
ley while exploring the heart of the Dark
Continent, were made public this evening
by the reading of his letter to the Eoyal
Geographical Society, at a meeting
of that distinguished bodr. He describes
at length the various devices by which the
natives endeavored to prevent the advance
of the expedition. One of those was to dig
shallow pits across the path of the
column and fill them with skewers, which
were deftly covered with leaves. The
skewers pierced the ieet of Stanley's men,
inflicting wounds that in many cases devel
oped into gangrenous sores. The men who
were lamed in this manner were seldom ,of
further service.
Mr. Stanley calls the natives "cunning
rogues," and says that for the purpose of ex
tortion they always pretended that the
countrv was suffering from a famine.
The "frindlies," he says, withheld informa
tion, but the natives who were captured by
the expedition imparted all they knew.
Mr. Stanley believes that the lake he dis
covered in 1876 belongs to the Congo.

The Celebrates Divorce Caso Decided at
Iast The Charge of Cruelty ConId.
ered Sufficient to Dissolve
the Slarltal Bonds.
Columbus, O., April 8.- Judge. Pugh
rendered his decision in the famous Church
divorce case this morning, granting Mrs.
Church a decree of divorce on the ground of
cruelty, giving her custody of three chil
dren and $400 per annum alimony. After
dismissing all of the charges made by
plaintiff as disproved, the Judge said:
The extreme cruelty, It is said, consisted of
inhuman and brutal treatment; of tbe use of
violent, profane and threatening langnage
toward her, which was so frequent, profane and
offensive as to keep ber in constant dread and
terror; of ordering her from the table, from his
room and bouse; and she avers that the defend
ant has so threatened, abused and maltreated
her that she was kept in such fear that she was
afraid to live in the same house with him.
By his answer the defendant denied all
the charges made against him in the most
positive and explicit terms. He did not
plead either justification, recrimination or
condonation. The hearing of this case on
the evidence was protracted to great length,
the records of the evidence numbering
about 3,000 pages. Considerable bitterness
and asperity was displayed, especially by
the plaintiff's side. Counsel argued the
case with a degree of ability and zeal which
shows that their feelings were enlisted in
the case of their clients. The friends of
the parties, and indeed the larger part of
the community, have taken a deep interest
in the controversy. On the charge of
cruelty the Court said:
Modern law and humanity regard cruelty on
the part of the husband, when it is deliberate,
extreme and habitual, as not a less flagrant
cause for divorce than that of infidelity on the
part of the wife. Upoh hearing the evidence,
I came to the conclusion that the defendant
had an imperious and domineering disposition,
which had borne heavily upon the plaintiff.
One portion of his. evidence conclusively
S roved this, and It also proved a purpose on
is part at one time to drive his wife into sub
jection to his will. According to the plaint
iff's evidence, he called her vile names
and told her that he loathed and
hated her: that he did not love her
at the time of their marriage; that
she was the most deformed object be ever
saw; that she had the most ragged character;
that she had no modesty or shame; that she
was not fit to be a wife or mother; and he
threatened to put her out of the house the
next day, and told her if she was a man he
would cowhide her.
It does not appear that there is even a possl
bilityjof reconciliation between the plaintiff
and defendant. They separated under circum
stances of scandal and disgrace. Parental love,
dread of scandal, regard for social position
and other moral considerations did not seem
strong enough to prevent tbe separation. The
Court finds that the charge of extreme cruelty
has been substantially proved, and for that
reason a decree of divorce is awarded.
The children are to be sent to Mr. Church's
residence immediately after dinner every Sat
urday and Sunday.

Harry Oliver Not Prepared.
A telegram from Baltimore, received at this
office last night, stated that Mr. Harry Oliver,
Jr., was a candidate for the presidency of the
Pittsburg and Western Railroad, which has be
come vacant through the death of Mr. James
When a reporter of Tins Dispatch called upon
Mr. Oliver at his residence, and asked him what
truth there was in the rumor, he said:
"1 am not a candidate for the office, and, in
were. I do not think I would say anything about
the matter for publication."
"Mr. Oliver, would yon like to give Tdb Dis
patch' your opinion regarding the freight dis
crimination which, HlS8tated, the Pennsylvania
Ballroad exercises against Pittsburg?" .. .
I would not mind saying something if I were
Jireptred to do so. But the matter is of such an
mportant character that I would like to think
over the subject for some time before advancing
an opinion. I think that Mr. Carnegie has done
the same thing before ho said anything."
Produce Commission and Grain merchants
Have Various Opinions for or Against
Discrimination as Suits Them Best
An Interesting Jumble of
Business men's Ideas.
Among dealers "in country produce the
following was the drift:
John Aiken, of Aiken & Henry We get
along very well with the Pennsylvania
Bailroad Company. It gives us good ser
vice and we do not complain. It is trne it
has always discriminated against us, but in
39 years we have got used to it. Away
back in the time when steamboats aid car
rying between here and St. Louis the Penn
sjlvania Railroad Company delivered flour
through its connections from St. Louis to the
Eastern cities as cheaply as it did to Pittsburg.
Mr. Kenton, of Baxter '&Renton Carnegie's
fight against the Pennsylvania Railway Com
pany is all right, but had he shown more ardor
in shoving the South Pennsylvania Railway
project I would think more of him. The P. B,
R. service is excellent, but it makes us pay
about all our business can stand.
Wm. Boehmer, of Boehmer & Co. The P. R.
R. does just what any other company would do
under similar circumstances. I have no par
ticular fault to find with it. Mr. Boehmer
appears to be a firm believer in the doctrine of
total depravity, and rather seemed to think it was
all right. He was rather obscure in his utter
ances. Frank Wilbert, of Wllbert Bros. The Pennsyl
vania Hallway Company's rates are too high, and
It gives us more trouble than any other, by Its In
dependent and arbitrary rulings, especially in
the matter of demurrage. The company charges a
dollar a day for all extra time. If we cannot get
a carlo-id of potatoes away, leave Just one load,
when the the time comes tbe car Is shut and locked
and we cannot get an hour's grace, but must pay
a dollar for a few minutes' detention. The offi
cials are angry on account of some trouble they
htd with our predecessors and we are the victims.
We have no trouble with the Pittsburg and Lako
Erie Railway Company. We always get a fair
show on its line.
Comprehensive Unfairness.
H. J. McCracken & Co. The Pennsylvania Kail
road discriminates not only against Pittsburg,
but against the entire State, and has slighted
Philadelphia ever since it got its terminus In New
Henry B. Res We can't fight that company. It
gives us good service, but it Is the dictator, and
all we can do U to stroke Its fur the right way and
get the best terms that can be coaxed out of It.
boiners Bros. We think Carnegie is about
right. The road gives us good service, but it
makes us pay for it.
Meyers & Tate The Pennsylvania ralllroad
suits us as well as, rather better than, any road
coming Into tbe city.
Thomas H. McOowan We get better service
from the Pennsylvania Ballroad than from any
other carrier, but charges are steep. 1 haven't
much to say on the subject.
Grain dealers were, generally speaking, more
pronounced against the Pennsylvania Railroad
than produce men, but some of them were not as
much "forninst" as others.
R. 8. McCague I don't find as much fault with
the Pennsylvania Railroad as when it gave re
bates so largely to individuals. I don't think It
docs much of that now. What is objectionable is
the discrimination in favor of particular cltleB,
and I hope Mr. Carnegie will keep up the war
until we get a State law similar to that of the
inter-State commerce act. 1 believe that would
maKe tne matter ail rignt.
Does It All Come Ont?
- B. McCracken While I would not stop the fight
between Mr. Carnegie and the Pennsylvania Rail
road Company, I don't believe either side tell the
whole truth. If the Legislature were disposed to
do its duty and provide for the 'enforcement of
article 17 of the State Constitution the trouble
of which people complain would be abated
speedily and effectually, but now for 17 years that
article has been allowed to remain a dead letter,
while its enforcement would cure all the Ills com
plained of. It does not seem that tbe people want
relief, for It is not very long since Chauncy
F. Black pledged himself to work for
the very end they profess to want, If made Gov
ernor and placed In a position to do so, and an
earnest In this direction had been given, but the
people decided by their votea tbat they didn't
want It. The enforcement of tbat article would
frcventall corporate grievances complained of.
t was the work of Jeremiah S. Black and goes to
tbe root of the evil.
John Hood l'don't talkon such matters for
publication until I have considered what I have to
say, and I am too busy to-day to give it time for
thought. I think a law In the spirit of the Inter
State commerce bill would remedy the matter.
Prentice & Hackett We have three lines from
our works to this city, and. of course, havealltbe
competition we want and do not suffer, so We are
not personally Interested.
Schomaker & Co. The Pennsylvania Railway
Company, having no opposition, does about as it
pleases with us. We get along very well with It,
bnt arc obliged to pet it and take what it sees fit to
allow us. we have no trouble with any of the
Why They Smile on It.
B. A. Voskamp & Co. We get along excellently
with the Pennsylvania Railroad Company. Its
management gives us a belter show on claims
than does any other road and our relations are
cordial with it as also with the Ft. Wayne Com
pany. We have unsettled claims of 6, 9 and
12 month,!' standing with some railroad com
panies, but none of that kind with the Pennsylva
nia Railroad or Pittsburg, Ft. Wayne and Chi
cago, and both are accommodating In the matter
of freight delivery.
F. i. Welxel, of Marshall, Kennedy & Co. We
can only ship about IS miles on either the Penn
sylvania Railroad or the lines controlled by It and
compete with other cities, as freights are against
us. For Instance, Buffalo can block us at Par
nassus. In fact, we can scarcely ship out of the
city 25 miles in any direction, and are forced to
fill orders by having Western shippers hill di
rectly to our customers. At times ne can send
stuff to Liverpool or Glasgow cheaper
than to points on the Allegheny Valley Railway.
Here is a table or rates for March. 18S3, in which
yon can See that on our class of freight the rate
was 18 cents from Pittsburg to Harrlsbnrg. while
It was but IS cents from Chicago to Pittsburg.
Western shippers cannot onlv get better rates
than we, but can have pauses thrown In. Pitts
burg cannot get fair rates West, but the West can
get them to anv point.
S. B. Floyd I think I would rather submit to
the tender mercies of the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company than to those of any other we have ever
struck In the matter. We have never had any
trouble with It, and have no complaint to make.
Dllworth Bros. We ship with the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company, and have no trouble with it at
all and don't expect anv.
Sir. Flood, ol Arbuckles & Co.So far as I know
we are at peace with all the world, and have no
trouble with any railway company.
Tbe Great Drygoods Men Have Little to Say
Against Discrimination T. C. Jenkins
and Others Come Out Flnt-Footed In
Favor of Radical Reform
Many Men of Many Minds.
Large dealers in drygoods, and other mer
chants 'who do a great deal of shipping of
the higher class, have divergent opinions
on this great topic of discrimination. For
William Semple My opinion from read
ing the Carnegie letters on freight discrimi
nation is that Andy has been the recipient
of many favors from the Pennsylvania Bail
road in the shape of rebates on freight tariff
in past years, and the company,
I think, politely informed the gentle
man tbat such indulgences from it could no
longer be expected; hence his hot and hasty
campaign against the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company. 'Why at this late moment does he
bring forth facts of which he has been cogni
zant for years? Is there not something signifi
cant in thlsT As to the discrimination of the
road against Pittsburg and its business houses,
I will say nothing, further than that I pay the
regular tariff rates, and, if there is any extor
tion by the company, I suppose you can class me
among the lmposed-upon merchants.
Vf. E. SchmerU was engaged; but William Hus
ton, manager, answered for him. Said be: "In
our business there is bnt little difference Jn tbe
freight rates on our goods. There is, or course, a
shameful amount of discrimination shown against
our city; but what can we do? We have practi
cally no redress; no competing line of railroad.
Another thing; la many casej with Iron and coke.
companies there are Insiders connected with them
that are also lnterestedgreatly in tbo l"T2
upon which they ship. This surely would maxe a
Squarely on Record.
T. C. Jenkins-There are many Inconsistencies
and palpable robberies practiced upon us business
men of Pittsburg by the Pennsylvania Railroad to
our utter helplessness. There Is no other agency
by which we can deliver our goods to points East
and West, so we have to submit to the inevitable,
lam heartlyln favor or Mr. Carnegie and his
suggestions as to a specific remedy for tbls great
bugbear to the business of our thriving city. The
inter-State lahr has not helped us one whit.
H. P. Dllworth, of H. P. Dllworth A Co., com
mission brokers: "In our business we have an
advantage over many firms here, inasmuch as we
have an existing competition between tbe Penn
sylvania Railroad and tbe Baltimore and Ohio be
tween here and Philadelphia, whence we bring
most of our sugars. The Pennsylvania Railroad
Company thought It could compel us to accede to
their high rates for freight, but so soon as Phila
delphia was touched by a competing road Just so
soon we left the Pennsylvania Railroad and its
monopolistic rates. The latter said we could not
do it successfully. We have. Just
tho same, and with unqualified success.
This talk of the Pennsylvania Company snub
bing Mr. Carnegie, and, further, that ne resorted
to the school-boy method of retaliation In expos
ing tbe outrages practiced, is all twaddle. He Is
too much of a business man, alive to his every In
terest, to enter Into such a controversy without
having some good foundation for filets. Anyhow,
his motive is to be commended, and, I think, he is
perfectly right in his charges.
Joseph Home & Co.'s shipping agent, Mr.Shay,
said he didn't know whether tho discrimination or
rates hurt their business or not. He had "just
glanced at Mr. Carnegie's letters; no opinion,
A Palpable Inlastice.
George Preston, of the St. Clair Coal and Coke
Company The rates on coke are most exorbitant,
and much higher than coal, which should not be,
from the ract that tbe coke is easier to handle, is
cleaner, and Is unloaded Jnst tbe same as Its
cousin-coal. Mr. Carnegie is perfectly right:
butheis doing just what should have been done
20 years ago. Pittsburg undoubtedly has been
subjected to a higher freight traffic than any other
city in the country, and had she not been a
wealthy town she would have been ban krupt sure.
Frank McCllntock, of Oliver McClIntock & Co.,
carpets and furniture Tbe chief point with us Is
the damage done toour trade within a radius of
100 miles or Pittsburg. The retail merchants
come In and say: "We can buy the same goods in
New York or Philadelphia, and have a greater
variety to select from, and still pay
the same freight tariff from these
points as from Pittsburg to their destination.
Mr. Buhl, of Boggs & Bubh Alleghcny-I am
hardly prepared to say anything regarding the
subject you broach, but it is most apparent that
we jobbers suffer immensely from the grasping
hand of monopoly I.e., the Pennyslvanla Rait
road. I was In hopes of the South penn project
materializing, but, since that has sunk deep Into
the mire of oblivion, we must abide by It philo
sophically. I hope, however, some other channel
may open soon which will serve as an antidote
from tne present "cinch" or the Pennsylvania
Railroad on rates.
Max Klein, liquor merchant, Allegheny, was In
favor of anythfng which would prove "strong
enough to down the greatest outrage known in
tbe history or railroads."
Mr. Wilson, or the Chautauqua Lake Ice Com
pany, Is quoted as saying that Plttsbnrg has to
pay more freight on Ice than any other city in the
United States.
Any number of business men were seen who
heartily advocated the movement to stop dis
crimination, as proposed by Mr. Carnegie, and to
bring our city within the realm of reasonable
railroad rates.
Mines Farthest From tbe Lakes and Easiest
Worked Pay the Lowest Freight Rates
. Competing Lines and Small-Fry
Roads Delighted toSeethePennsy
Pitched Into, Yet Afraid to
Peep for Publication.
At least some railroad men are found
who admit that the Pennsylvania road has
been discriminating against Pittsburg; but
as the fight is not their own, they have no
desire to appear in print as the champions
of the shippers.
The coal operators have been complaining
of unjust discriminations for some time.
The decision of the inter-State Commission
in favor of the railroads in the Imperial Coal
Company's case was a severe blow to those
who had banked on a different ruling.
The coal men claim that they haven't made
anything in the business for two years, and the
refusal of the roads to give them better rates
only ados to their misery. Within what is
known as the 40-mile radius of Plttsbnrg all the
lake shippers In this territory are given the same
rates to Cleveland; that is, a coal operator 40 miles
up the Pemlckey road doesn't par any more to.
hare his coal sent to Cleveland than tbe operator
atChartlers. The coal men would have no fault
to find with this arrangement If they were equally
situated; but here is where tbe millstone grinds.
Tbe coal veins along tbe Pemlckey and Pitts
burg. Virginia and Charleston roads are higher
up, the coal is softer and easier mined than the
'coal lying below Pittsburg on tbe Ohio river. The
Pittsburg, Virginia and Charleston operators pay
less for their mining, and. favored by the rail
roads besides, they are able to more tban compete
with the other lake shippers less favorably situ
ated. The latter are outspoken against the rail
roads, and hold tbat the operators further re
moved from the lake than themselves should pay
more freight than they do.
A merchant had occasion to shin roods into
Jefferson county from Pittsburg not long ago. He
went to the railroad people, ana tbey gave him an
excessive rate.
"Why. this is exorbitant, " said the shipper In
"Butwe can't do any better, " persisted the
freight agent; "and we will get your business
anyhow; you can't send It on any other road."
"Rather than be fleeced In this manner," re
plied the merchant, "I will show you whether I
can't do better. I can order the goods from Phila
delphia and have them sent from that city over
the Philadelphia and Erie road, and your line
won't get a cent, and It won't cost me as much."
v nen tne agent saw ine man meant ousiness,
he reduced the rate like a flash. This la only an
example of how Pittsburg merchants are treated
by roads in the State having no competition.
Plenty of such incidents are picked up by re
porters every day.
Tbe attack ol Mr. Carnegie on the Pennsyl
vania road Is enjoyed with a sort of ghoulish glee
by that line's competitors, and. when an attempt
is made to put them in the same boat; It is surpris
ing what mental agility they can display in de
fending the Pennsylvania's position as well as
their own. "You can tramp on my neighbor's
corns as much as you please, but don't trod ou
mine, for heaven's sakel" Is the secret of their
policy. Reporters are given stacks of figures and
statistics for their own information; but. like tbe
faces or Turkish women, these valuable facts
must not appear In the newspapers with names of
railroaders attached.
