One of the largest meetings of manufact
urers ever held In this city occurred yester
day at the Hotel Anderson. Fully 125
manufacturers of boilers assembled in re
sponse to a call issued by the Pittsburg con
tingent of the boiler men of ihe "United
States. The object of the meeting was to
&form an association for the purpose of secur
ing better material and better workmanship
in the manufacture of boilers and thus
prevent the frequent accidents by explosions.
Almost all the prominent manufacturers in
the country were present, including Colonel
Robert Munroe, of this city, at whose works

all Iron and steel manufacturers to adopt a system
of manufacturing but one kind of Iron or steel to
be used in tbe construction of steam boilers, to be

THE RATE FOR MIXING
"Is Fixed by Miner nnd Operators1 Ecpre-
j nentntlves The K. ofU nnd N. P. U.
Will Not Accept the Terms However.
The mining rate in "Western Pennsylva-
, nia and Ohio has been fixed for the year
beginning May 1, but the rivalry between
the two leading organizations of miners
may result in trouble. The National Pro
gressive Union men, the K.of L. and unorgan
ized miners are blaming each other for bad
management. It is claimed that a straight 21
cents a ton rate could have been secured if
r President McBride bad not issued his circular
advising the men to accept tbe operators' prop
osition. This is contradicted by Mr. McBride,
i wbo admits that he advised the acceptance of
tbe proposition, but when the members of the
organization voted on the question and decided
tojreiect his advice be kept ont of tbe fight.
The conference on tbe wage question was
held yesterday afternoon in tbe rooms of tbe
Engineers' Society. There were present four
Ohio operators and a like number ot miners,
and also eight miners and operators from this
State, making 16 in all entitled to a vote The
1 representatives were as follows: Ohio oper
ator L. R. Doty, Edward Martin and Messrs.
Herd anaTurney. the two last named refusing
to participate: miners Thomas Bentham,John
Nugent, James O'Donnell and Robert Watch
orn; Pennsylvania operators f. L. Roboins,
U. M. Anderson, Upson Andrews and Alex
ander Dempster: miners J. F. Welsh, W. W.
Miller, John Osbonrne and J. B. Rea.
When tbe conference was called to order
officers were elected. Mr. Dempster was made
chairman and Mr. Bentham nas chosen as
secretary. The operators presented their
proposition which was published in this paper
the other day, and is as follows: For Pennsyl
vania from "May 1 to November 1, 71 cents
per ton. and from November 1 to May L 7ts
cents: for Ohio 62K and 67 cents. Their
proposition coctiined the statement that they
would not deal with any labor organization,
bnt would sign the scale with tbe miners of tbe
The trouble between the N. P. U. and the
K. of L. miners was commented on at length,
and it was decided to hear from miners' repre
sentatives. A large number responded, and
several caucuses were held in different parts of
tho building. At 5:30 the delegates were in
structed and went into the conference room
and voted. Tbe ballot resulted In the accept
ance of the operators' terms, although the
gWestem Pennsylvania miners cast their ballots
against accepting tbe terms of tbe operators.
I This Information was obtained from tbe Sec
Jrttary.'Mr. Bentham, who said that had it not
been for Mr. McBride's advice to tbe members
of the N. P. U the Pennsylvania miners could
have demanded and received 74 cents for min
ing for the year. This statement Mr. McBride
denies, and says that all the assemblies of the
N. P. U. voted against the acceptance of his
recommendation, and that as be is an officer,
he will obey their wishes.
Tbe rate for mining is fixed at the above
terms bv tbe miners and operators present, bat
as the N. P. U. took no part in the conference
as an organization, it is believed the terms will
not be accepted by their members. The
Knights of Labor may not accept, nnd to sum
the matter up in brief the conference may be
called a force. Until the two organizations
cease tbe fight for the supremacy, it will be al
most an impossibility to arrange a satisfactory
and uniform scale of wages.
Secretary Bentbam, who is a member of the
Knights of labor, said at the close of the con
ference, that the rate for the year had been
fixed, but bad it not been for President
McBride's circular a better rate could have
This as denied by President McBride, who
stated that although be bad advised the accept
ance of the operators' terms and issued a circu
lar to that effect, tbe members of tbe union
had voted against it, and therefore the N. P. U.
shonld not be blamed for the publication of bis
The conference was a very lively one, and it
is stated that Patrick McBryde said: "If John
McBride would come up here I would knock
his head off with a cobblestone." This state
ment was corroborated by Mr. McBride and
several others wbo had heard it, but they
claimed iPwas only said as a joke.
AV nEnEAS, The representatives of the miners of
Western 1'ennsyHania have recently and re
peatedly decided that their mining affairs shonld
be conducted by tbe .National Progressive Union,
Whereas, When, in accordance with that de
cision, the officers of the National Progressive
Union called a convocation to consider tbe propo
sition to them by the operators of Ohio and the
Pittsburg district relative to the running for the
ensnlng year: that J. B. Kea and other leaders of
2s. T. A. o. 135 sought admission to the conven
tion as miners' delegates, having bad the court
esies of tbe convention extended to them by al
lowing ibem to participate in the deliberations,
maliciously sought to disrupt the meeting, fall
ing In their design to do so they withdrew, and
with the seven men who accompanied them have
issued a scries of resolutions, beginning with:
We, the railroad miners or the west Pennsyl
vania district," such arrogant statement being
misleading and likely to cause misunderstanding,
therefore, be it
ltcsolvcd. That In the representation of the
miners ot the Pittsburg district in convention as
sembled, after heartngPresident McBride's reason
for issuing Ids circular relating to the proposition
of the operators and to advice contained therein,
believe that his action was not onlyjustlflable and
in keeping with his position as President of the
National Progressive Union. We condemn the
resolution printed in the morning papers as un
just and entirely uncalled for. Be It further
Kesolved, That, acting under instructions of
our constituents, the majority of whom demand
76i cents per ton for tbe entire year, we are un
able to accept the conditions proposed by the
operators, and as no other terms have been of
fered, we resolve to adjourn the convention.
A SUPERINTENDENT DISCHARGED.
Fresh Trouble at tbe Works of the Alle
gheny Bessemer Steel Company.
The strike at the Allegheny Bessemer
Steel Company's plant, at Dnquesne. is still
on, and from present indications it may be
a prolonged one. The Braddock men who
are employed there say that it would be im
possible to continue at tbe present method of
working during the heated term, even if their
wages were advanced. They claim that they
are compelled to work unceasingly for 14 hours
sometimes, for a day's work. The stopper car
riers work eight hours a" day at the Edgar
Thomson and make $3 50 a day. The Dnquesne
men are paid by the day and receive 51 50.
Something out of the ordinary occurred at
the works yesterday morning.
AVben President Clark arrived at the scene,
be requested Superintendent John Edwards, of
the converting mill, to get together -what men
be could and make an effort to blow steel. It
was the intention of the firm to put the con
verting department on double turn on Thurs
day. Mr. David Williams had come on to take
charge of the other turn, whereupon Mr. Ed
wards asked that Mr. Williams be given a
chance to try bis band, at the same time re
fusing to comply with the request. Ha was at
once discharged. President Clark saying that
not a man employed under Mr. Edwards in tbe
converting department would be allowed to re
turn to work after tbe difficulty was adjusted.
Things appear to be rather blue, but tbe men
say they will not return to work at the present
rate of wages, while the firm declare that they
are determined that the works shall be oper
ated. Something interesting is expected to de
velop within a few days.
A BIG STRIKE PROBABLE.
Jefferson County Conl Miners Rcfuso to
Accept a Seduction.
A general strike is imminent in the Jef
ferson county coal regions. The owners -of
the Adrian mines have ofiered their em
ployes a redaction of 5 cents per ton in the
price of mining coal, that is, 35 cents instead of
40 cents, the present rate. The miners have de
clined to accept the reduction, and, if an at
tempt is made to enforce it upon them, as is
extremely probable, all of tbe other companies
will make similar reductions, and the result
will be a general strike involving thousands of
The miners claim that, all things considered,
the Adrian operators are getting their coal
mined for less than 25 cents per ton, and. as
companies operating their veins pay from 60 to
76 cents per ton for mining, and still prosper,
they think the Adrian people could manage to
struggle along at the ostensible rate of 70 cents
John D. Conway, of this city. President of
tbe Miners' Progressive Union, was in tbe
region during tbe past few days trying to get
matters fixed up so as to prevent the proposed
reduction. It is said that the large coal buyers
are holding back their orders in anticipation of
lower prices for coal when the reduced scale
for mining goes into effect.
THOSE IMPORTED GLASSWORKERS.
They Deny That They Were Brought to
This Conntrv Under Contract.
The mystery, for it is a mystery, as to the
circumstances under which the 25 window
glass workers were brought to this country
and sent to Jeannette, is becoming deeper.
The men, as heretofore, deny that they came to
this country under contract. When they ar
rived at .Jeannette there was a good meal
awaiting tbem, and as they were without funds
one of them asked who was to pay for the
meal. The reply was "Never mind. Eat your
About a dozen of them were seen yesterday
and all denied having been imported under
contract. Tbey said tbey were members of tbe
Knights of Labor and had met President
Campbell when he was in England last summer.
They said they bad been told there was work
in this country, and bad come expecting good
positions, but are not satisfied with the pros
pects. Mr. McKee. of Chambers 4 McKee, said
they would need men in a few weeks to operate
their new tank furnace and all of the for
eigners w ould be employed. Until tbe furnace
is ready the men will be given laboring work.
President Campbell said last night that none
of tbe men bad been to see blm, but he bad no
reason to believe they might not come in a few
days and show their cards.
A STATEMENT DENIED.

peared in this paper yesterday to the effect

AN EVENT FOE THE BELATIVES 0KLI
The marriage ot Miss Alice Jones,
daughter of Hon. B. F. Jones, to Mr. "W.
"W. Willeck, took place last night at the
residence of tho bride's parents, corner of Lin
coln and Irwin avenues, Allegheny.
Owins to tho death of-Mr, T. M. Jones, the
ceremony was very private, only the nearest
relatives of the bride and groom being present
The bridal party consisted of Miss Mary
Watson, Miss Maud Byers, Miss Harriet Wat
son and Miss SueVDalzcll. Mr. James H.
Wlllock attended his brother as best man.
The ushers were Mr. Frank P. Sproul, Mr.
J. D. Lyon, Mr. W. J. Patton and Mr. Barry
The ceremony took place in the parlor at 8
o'clock, the brids being accompanied by six
maids of honor. The floral decorations
throughout tbe lower part of the house were of
unusual magnificence, and their artistic design
roide an exquisito effect.
Upon entering the front hall a beautiful
screen of smilax dotted at different places
with bunches of roses, was noticeable. This
screen made a division in the vestibule, behind
which tho Toerge Orchestra was placed.
Along tho walls at each end of the screen stood
enormous pots filled with tropical plants of
various species. A very large vase of Jacque
and brido roses bad also been placed in the
The parlor where thecercmony was solemnized
was a perfect revelation of floral decorative
art. The bay window, in front of which the
brido and groom stood, Mas a bower of the
most exquisite floral treasures. There were
two curtains made of smilaxand mermet roses,
with boop3 of bride roses. The lower part of the
center pane was covered with a short curtain
of smilax and pink roses, with a centerpiece of
lilac The top border was banked with Baron
ness Rothschild and Marescbal Neil roses.
From tho middle of this bank garlands of pink
roses were stretched across to the wall, and
from above a light was suspended with a pink
shaae. The reflection from this light, as it fell
all around tbe mass of lloral beauties, made
everytbing appear in a hue of soft exquisite
pink, which rendered the scene wonderfully
All tbe other rooms, the library and tbe
dining room, were correspondingly beautiful.
These decorations were the work of Mr. Dell,
of John R. fe A Murdoch.

The Birmingham Street Cnr Co. Will Not

The old story was revived by an after

Street Car Company contemplated adopting
electric motor power on its road, and arrange
ments were beinemade to use tbe Tesla motor.
Mr. Patrick, President of the company, when
asked whether he would corroborate the state
No; there is not the vestige or a fonndation in
truth for It. We had a meeting of tne Board of
Directors yesterday afternoon, and the thing was
not even mentioned. Now, let me tell vou this:
We will never use electricity or any other than
horse power on onr car?, unless we can do so to
onr great advantage. As for electricity, we will
only use It when we can put the motive power in
each car and rnn it Individually, without depend

An Alleged Lunatic Gives His Honor a
Wild Opinion of Justice.
There was quite a dramatic scene before
Jndge Stowe yesterday. It resulted from
bringing before the Court, on habeas corpus,
William Lewis, of Bellevue, an Inmate of Dix
mont Insane Asylum. After other testimony,
Lewis finally took the stand in his own behalf,
and, failing to impress the Court with a story of
discipline andastraigbtjackct he had to under
e while netting shaved at the asylum, threw
bis arms in a tragic manner and yelled:
"You are are a darned lot of perjurers, the
whole lot of von!"
This outburst was called forth by Judge
Stowe's decision to remand Lewis until further
order; Dr. Hutchinson, of the asylum. Con
stable Johnston, of Bellevue, Rev. C. F.Swift
and William Morrow having previously testified
of Lewis' threats to kill bis wife, which bad led
to his incarceration.
