THE PITTSBURG-' DISPATCH, TUESDAY, APEXL 28, ' 1889.
ALL CONSUMERS HIT
By. an Ordinance in Council That May
Hamper Farm Hucksters.
THE MATTER IS RECOMMITTED.
Diamond Street Widening to lie Thoroughly
TEAT MUNICIPAL LIEN BILL AGAIN
After Common Council had appropriately
referred a large batch of papers, petitions
preliminary ordinances for minor improve
ments yesterday, including the greater one
to widen Diamond street from Liberty ave
nue to Grant street, the Finance Committee
reported with an affirmative recommenda
tion an ordinance authorizing the police to
Amstnn viatv all nprsnns found to DC "Ped
dling without license and all persons found
driving through the atreets without a ve
Mr. McGunniele opposed consideration
of the ordinance in its present form as
placing any stranger from outside who
might drive through the city in danger of ar
rest. It would be a great injuslice,he thought,
to make every farmer, gardener or dairyman
from the boroughs or townships outside the
aty Day a city vehicle license. Besides, Mr.
UcGunntgle said, there was a decision from
the courts touching upon this question made a
few years ago which would be as effective now
Mr. Magee defended the ordinance. It was
necessary to have such a law in the city to pre
vent tax dodging. It had been his experience
in the past that the man who came up prompt
ly and paid his vehicle tax got the worst of it.
This law was to prevent that. It a gardener,
farmer or dairyman, or an Allegheny man,
came into the city with a license from his
own bailiwick it would be accepted as a license
in this city; otherwise he must take the conse
quences. This would compel all vehicle
owners to pay their dues and be a great sav
ing to all interested. Moreover, he said, it
would be nothing more than runt to compel
the farmers and dairymen to take ont a
license because tbey used the streets and
bridces of the city and wore them ont as much
as city residents, and. If a man drives out over
the country roads and turnpikes, he pays a
license in the shape of toll to drive over badly
Mr. McGunnigle moved to recommit the or
dinance to the Finance Committee for revision,
which was agreed to.
An ordinance authorizing the Controller to
close up certain accounts of delinquent tax
collectors and suspended banks, which" cannot
be collected and which appear upon the books
of the city as cash, was reported from the
Finance Committee and nassed under a sus
pension of the rules. The ordinance author
izes the Controller to make a total abate
ment of the balances earned In the
suspended Pittsburg Savings Bank and
the United Savings Bank, the de
posits amounting to 28,576 01, from the
amount charged ajrainst the City Treasurer.
The Controller is also authorized to allow a de
duction of said amount from the debit of the
amount of the treasurer's account current and
to strike off the balance from bis own books.
He is further authorized to close the accounts
with the def nnct banks, standing in the name
of the following commissioners for the improve
ment of streets under the Penn avenue act:
Wylle avenue commissions. $2,950 50; Thlrty
thlrd street commissions, 143 89: Forbes street
commissions $336 26: Lincoln avenue commis
sions. HOT S3; inland avenue commissions, $982 84.
The treasurer Is authorized to release Tom the ac
counts of defaulted tax collectors the amounts la
default pertaining to taxes prior to the yearl&S7
and to accept ana mark the same discharged.
All the oidinance that were affirmatively
recommended by the Public Works Committee
last Wednesday were banded up in a bunch
and referred to the Board of Viewers, except
ing that for the extension of Walllngford
street from Seville to Craig streets, those
changing the names of Roup street to Kecley
avenue, Bamet street to Roup street and
Landwehr street to Station street, all of which
were indefinitely postponed.
The following ordinances were passed final
ly: Authorizing a compromise with Mrs. Mary
Ann Snyder for damages caused by the grad
ing of Grandview avenue; granting Armstrong
3ros. switch scale privileges on Twenty-lonrth
The Committee on Surveys reported affirma
tively the ordinance authorizing the widening
of Diamond street from Grant to Liberty
streets, but asked for an opinion on the matter
from the City Solicitor before further action
is taken. The suggestion was adopted and the
ordinance was referred to the Board of View
ers with the request that they thoroughly in
vestigate and report, In the fullest detail." the
cost ot the proposed improvement, the dam
ages caused and the benefits to pay for it, within
President Holliday appointed Messrs. Big
ham, Gardner and Magnire as the Common
branch of the joint committee to go to Hams
burg to oppose the INewmejer municipal lein
kicking tjp a muss.
A bill of 51,216 13 from the Philadelphia Com
pany for regulators, service plpo constructions
and other attachments used in supplying the
city department buildings with natural gas,
was offered by Mr. Magee, with a resolution
that it be paid, Mr. Magee said, in submitting
the bill, that it had been discussed in the Fi
nance Committee, but tbey could not agree
npon its disposition. The Philadelphia Com
pany was under contract to furnish the city
with free gas, but he ordinance which made
the contract also provided that the city should
pay for all pipe connections required in f ur
nlshlne the supply; consequently he thought
the bill should be paid.
Mr. Gardner objected to paying the company
$25 each for regulators which belonged to the
company. The deposit required for a regulator
in a dwelling was only 85, and more gas was
consumed in a dwelling than in a fire engine
house. Why the city should pay so much more
he failed to see.
Wm. McGunnigle thought the bill was pre
posterous. He believed that someone had
stumbled across the figures, and thought it
might be a good way to get $1,200 out of the
city. If the Councilmen would be foolish
enough to pay it they could, but he would op
pose any such proceeding. The bill dated back
to 18S4. If it was all straight and honest, why
bad not the bill been presented before? The
regulators all over the city were the
property of the Philadelphia Company, and
why should the city pay for what conld not be
long to her? The streets were badly in need of re
pairs, and be thought if Councils had 81,200 they
had no use for, it could much better be used
on street repairs than making a present of it
to the Philadelphia Company.
A vote wa- taken on the adoption of the
resolution, and it was defeated.
MOBE KICK AND MORE MUSS.
Mr. Can asked to call the attention of Conn
cils to a bill that is now under consideration in
the State Legislature which Is designed to ef
fect Pittsburg, providing for the extension of
the fire limits to cover the whole city. He
thought the bill unjust, and advised Councils
to take action toward having it amended or
Mr. Magee and Mr. Culbertsou said the bill
was a good one and should be passed. It placed
the erection of buildings anywhere In the city
under the care of the Board on Wooden Build
'ings, and while it would not totally prevent the
erection of wooden buildings, would restrict
the erection of that class of structures where
It would be unsafe and undesirable to have
Mr. Blgham said the bill would place too
much power with the Building Committee, and
cause too much delay.
Mr. Ferguson opposed the bill in vehement
terms. It might be all right, be said, if tbe
Sower was delegated to a fair and Impartial
oard, but with tbe wooden building board of
this city it would be a great power In a very

of tbe resolution it was found a quorum was
not present, and Councils adjourned without

and the Tax Lien Bill.
In the Select Council yesterday Mr. Gil
lespie, of the Sixteenth ward, was sworn in
upon the call of the wards. A great many
petitions and papers for ordinances were pre
sented and referred to the proper committees.
Among them ere ordinances increasing 'fire

Building Inspector's 52,500. Then reports of
the organization of important standing com
mittees, as heretofore published, were pre-
-After a long discussion and wrangle concern
ing tbe proposed purchase of a 3,000 lot in the
Thirtv-nrst ward for an engine and hose bouse,
Mr. Keating moved to refer the ordinance to

mittee. This was carried.
Mr. Lambie offered the following resolution,
which, after some discussion bv Messrs. Monro,
Robertson and Keating, was adopted.
Resolved. That a joint committee of five mem
ben of Councils, together with the two Presi
dents of Councils, be appointed to visit Harris
burg and enter the protest of the city of Pittsburg
against the municipal Hen bill, and urge the

.THE MILEAGE BOOK.
How Pullman's Spotters Wntch the Men
nnd the Can A Regular System of Es
plonase is Established.
A local passenger agent said to a reporter
yesterday: "I am not so sure that Judge
Cooley will reverse his decision on the party
rate. When he learns that his main reason
that the tickets will fall into the hands of
brokers is not correct there are other reasons
he can urge that will knock out the rate.
"The drummer's plan to issue a mileage book
good on a number of roads is not agreeable to
the larger lines. Tbe books are good for a
year, and in manv instances tbey would be sold
by short roads. Probably tbe money for tbe
ticket wonld not be distributed before the end
of the year, and it would give some roads the
use of money that did not belong to them,
without paying interest.
"There is one serious objection to the mile
age book, and tnat is tne opportunity it gives
to a conductor to help along his friends. Sup
pose a msn was going to Cleveland on one of
these tickets. The conductor wants to help
bim along, and he tears ont of the book only
partot tbe mileage. There is no spotter in
tbe world unless belooked over tbe conductor's
shoulder could tell bow many miles had been
"There are few spotters hired these days by
tbe railroads. They employ other methods to
keep their conductors straight, but the Pull
man Company has a full corps of detectives.
These men never go over the same road twice
in succession. If a conductor or porter is re-
Sorted, they do not accept the report of one
etective, but two or more are sent
over tbe route, and their reports are

THIRTEEN BALLS LAST EVENING.
Some That Were Eefased Official Sanction
and Many That Weren't,
AGEAND TIME AT THE TURNER HALL
The studied quiet of Lent let go with a
snap, and with a result almost demoralizing
in a social way. ,
The relaxation was felt the greatest in the
Public Safety Department, when a perfect
rush ensued for ball licenses, 13 being
granted, and in full sway last night, and
the fact that a little gaiety had been lost
during the solemn season was folly appre
ciated and fully made up for by the lively
dancers last evening. If there is any virtue
in making up for lost time, then those pres
ent are way ahead of the game.
Chief Brown was not in his office, hut
Assistant Chief Gamble "Weir was there,
and said the licenses had been issued to
only well behaved and responsible people.
This they had found necessary in order to shut
down on the low dance houses that created so
much trouble. The licenses issued for last

again, the White Rose Social, Center Avenue

coming in rapidly, and the labor of love goes
on, as tbey say over there, because "Councils
in their wisdom saw fit to sit down on the prop
osition to charge $2 SO to cover expenses and
trouble of a license."
In every place one or more officers are de
tailed to keep order, tbe number being regu
lated by the location and habits of the people
managing the balls.
THE GERMAN GALA NIGHT.
The Thalia Theater, in New York, may at
times be filled with more people, but never
with a more .demonstrative or fashionable
audience than that' which sought seats in the
Central Turner Hall last night to listen to the
first presentation in this city of the melo
drama "Mein Leopold."
The portrayal of tbe principal characters was
ably acted by such well-known histrionic people
as Mr. and Mrs. Carl Wilt, of Cleveland, O.;
Mr. and Mrs. John Baureir, Mr. and Mrs.
Guyen Doeblin, Mrs. Marie Wartman and a
large cast, which assuredly merited tbe vocifer
ous applause apd numerous encores. Among the
many features was the charming musical num
bers by Toerge interpolated during the five acts
and tbe vocal efforts on tbe part of the players
were particularly admired. After the curtain
rung down, a ball, which was a pleasing affair,
was given, lasting till early morning. Another
entertainment will be given by the scholars of
the Turn Verein next Monday at the hall.
Shortness of breath, with failing
strength, and wasting of flesh, accompanied

Mr. John H. King, a well-known citizen of
Allegheny county, .residing at Tarentum, has

house sells the best goods for the least money? Doing this, and
following the question up with a personal investigation, he would
quickly find out that
unlike other houses, not only claim, but actually do give better
value for one's money than any other house in this section. This
explains, too, why Kaufrranns' have completely outdistanced all
competitors in the common race for popularity.

In this case you will find the "modest" number of 15,000 Men's
Suits to select from. This is a larger stock than any two Pittsburg
houses can show; it is also a finer stock, a more fashionable stock,
and a far cheaper stock. It doesn't stop here, either. How about
our straightforward manner of dealing? Don't, you think it is worth
something to be at liberty to take home your purchase and, if you
see.fit, for any reason whatever to bring back the goods and get
your money refunded, you are welcome to do so? Our cash drawer
is always op en for dissatisfied patrons. We make no excuses, but
hand back the cash. Ours is the only house that thus protects its.
customers. Others may claim it, but the fact remains, we alone do
it Try our goods, try our prices, try our way of doing business,
and, we feel confident, you will be our life-long customer.

our success. Buy Shoes from us once (whether Ladies', Men's or

AS THOSE WHO
DON'T WANT TO SEE.
There are people who have eyes
and cannot see; ears, and cannot
hear; brains, and cannot think.
They can, if they want to, but they
don't want to; they think they
"know-it-all," you know. To this
class of people b'elong those who,
year in and year out buy their
Clothing without giving the matter
its due consideration. They rush
helter, skelter into the next best
(mostly the next worst) clothing,
house, get probably half the value
for their money, walk around for a '
few months in clumsy, ill-fitting'
garments, only to repeat the same
folly over again. Blind to the
quality, unmindful of the price!
They never for a moment think
that the first question a clothing
buyer should ask himself is: What
