A STARTLING SUICIDE.
A Tonne Man, While Walking With His
Lndy tfrlcnd, Fatally Shoots Himself
fend End of a Little Romance.
John P. Shaffer, aged 19, assistant ticket
agent of the Pennsylvania Railroad at Bast
Iiiberty,comnritted suicide at 9:15 last night
on the corner of Earimer avenne and
Meadow street. It was another case of unre
quited love, and the yonng lady upon whom he
showered his affections was Miss Amelia
Schilke, formerly of Great Bend, Kan, The
lady is a sister of Mrs. "Woods, of 417 Larimer
avenue, and also a niece of Major "E. D. Wilt,
of the Grand Opera House. She was a very
highly respected woman, ana had received the
attentions of the suicide for some time past.
The suicide, who left his office shortly before
9 o'clock, immediately went to the residence of
Mrs. "Woods, where Miss Schilke was, ana
asked her to accompany him for a walk. She
at first refused, on account of the lateness of
the hour, but finally assented, and started out
with him. They walked together, but he
seemed very disconsolate about something, and
was very indifferent toward her. She ques
tioned him as to the cause, and he only replied:
I have come to bid you goodby."
Nothing further was saia, but immediately
tho report of a pistol startled her, and she saw
her friend falling on the sidewalk with blood
streaming from his forehead.
Screaming and startled, she made an outcry,
to which some men in Katzmyer's drug store
answered, and into which place he was carried
and Dr. Ruch summoned. He pronounced the
wound fatal. The ball entered the right
temple, slightly above the car, and took a down
ward and diagonal course, lodging in the lower
part of the left jaw bone.
The patrol wagon was called, and the young
man was removed to his home on Tennerstreet,
near Murtland avenue, where he cannot pos
sibly survive the horrible self-inflicted wounds.
His father is John T. Shaffer, an old employe
of the Pennsylvania Railroad, and was an ap
plicant for the postmastershipjof East Liberty.
No reasonable cause can be assigned for such a
deed on the part of young Shaffer, as he was
well liked by the company, so much so, indeed,
that he was to assume the position as Assistant
Ticket Agent in the Union depot on next Mon
day. What goes to show that the deed was long
premeditated, if the entreaties of love were re
jected by the young ladyin question, is the fact
that he purchased a bulldog revolver, caliber
32, some weeks ago, and one of the police offi
cers en the beat near the station was called in
by him about a week ago and asked to show
him his revolver. The officer handed 'him the
weapon, and he made some remark abont the
ease it would be to kill a person with it.
The family of the rash young man are pros
trate, and also Miss Schilke who witnessed
the afiair. She had intended leaving for ber
home in Kansas on "Wednesday, but it is now
feared she cannot go, on account of the sad
occurrence. The young man had many
An Allegheny Ulan Discovers Where His
Greenbacks Have Gone.
John 6. Dollman, a bntcher on Chestnut
street, Allegheny, has a stall in the market
honse of that city. On last Saturday he
missed a $10 bill from his money drawer,
and believed somebody had stolen it. Shortly
after he placed a $5 bill in the drawer, and in a
minute's time he discovered that this bill was
also missing. That appeared to be funny to
Mr. Dollman, as he had not left the stall and
was positive the drawer had not been opened
since he placed the money in it. Consequently,
ho at once,began a search. Pulling the drawer
out he discovered a small hole that had been
made by rats, and sticking half way through it
was his S3 bill. He pulled it out, and found
half of it eaten away. He concluded to hunt
for the rats' nest, that he was sure was there.
Behind his money drawer he keeps his Ice box,
and the back of the drawer is flush against it.
Mr. Dollman tore away the side of the ice
box, which exposed the packing of charcoal op
the inside. Here he found a quantity of paper
money torn to bits. There was about half a
peck of it which Mr. Dollman gathered up. and
yesterday he brought it to the Custom House
in this city to see if he could not have it re
deemed. Until Mr. Dollman left the office the
authorities had found $116 worth, of money in
small bis, and they could not tell how much
more they would find. He was told he could
recover about 20 per cent of it.
Mr. Dollman has missed money from his
drawer for the last year but thought some boys
bad robbed him.

FOR A MASS MEETING.
The Retail liquor Dealers Hear of a
Big Movement by Citizens.
A COMMITTEE TO VISIT THE COURT.
Some Beally Significant Legal Opinions of
THE! CAST BE LEGALLY SOLD HEEE
Nearly 300 retail liqnor dealers held a
meeting at 78 Fourth avenue yesterday.
Mr. S. Bing, of Sixth street, presided. He
made quite a lengthy address, in which he
told the saloon keepers that a movement
was on foot among disinterested citizens to
call a mass meeting, at which the public in
general could protest against the wholesale
resusal of licenses by Judge White. He
was not at liberty to mention names. How
ever, the citizens were ofa most substantial
character, including iron and glass manu
facturers, butchers, bakers and landlords.
If they could secure a hall in the central
part of the city, the meeting was to be
called for Thursday or Friday night of this
At this mass meeting a committee will be
appointed to visit Judge "White, -Chief
Brown, of the Department of Public Safety,
and Chief Elliott, of the' Department of Chari
ties. This committee will be made up entirely
of citizens not engaged in the saloon business.
They will represent to the Jndge, upon his re
turn to the city, and to the city officials, whom
tbey believe to have been influential in secur
ing many license refusals, that they believe
SUCH A LAF.GE LIST
of applicants could not be handled without er
rors, and that Judge White made errors wholly
unintentional, and that he is pardonable for
them. However, they will aver that it Is only
fair to the men who have suffered .from these
errors that Judge White should reconsider
their cases; in other words, that he should
again go over the testimony he took and revise
the list of licenses refused and granted.
In the speeches that were made at the meet
ing the saloon keepers approved of this plan.
They believed it was better than to have Judge
White grant rehearings in certain cases. Sev
eral gentlemen said they believed that the
Judge was now ready to admit that, in' the
great task which he was compelled to manage
himself.be bad made mistakes in refusing so
many reputable dealers. Therefore thev be
lieve that a careful, quiet review of the official
record of testimony and consultations with the
chiefs of municipal departments will show His
Honor just where these errors lay.
In all the addresses delivered at the meeting,
no unkind or sarcastic allusions were made
with reference to Jndge White. Some mem
bers had been informed by citizens that there
was a public fear of street fights in front of
the lucky saloons, on account of' there being so'
few and so largo a trade to be supplied.
A resolution was passed to close saloons at
11:30 o'clock to-night, half an hour earlier than
the hour required by law. President Bing
states that this is done to show the
public that the saloon keepers are law-,
abiding and not the greedy outlaws that some
pictured them. From all the speeches a
sentiment was apparent to frankly lay the
whole matter before Judge White again, in the
best of good will, and then strictly abide by
the consequences, whatever tbey are..
ABOUT THUESDAX OK FEIDAT.
The committee, of which Charles Vowinkle
is Chairman, reported that the consultation
with the wholesale dealers had been held, and
that, as a result, lawyers were consulted and
many petitions for rehearings filed in court.
Judge White will arrive home on Wednes
day night. It is probable that he will appear in
court on Thursday morning. Although that is
after May 1, rehearings could be held at any
time, and any licenses then granted made to
date from May L However, the counsel for
the liquor men trill be officially notified of His
Honor's return, and the hour of rehearings. If
he choose to grant any.
Applications for rehearings in the cases of a
number of applicants for bottlers' license, -who
had been refused, were filed yesterday by
John S. RoDb, Esq. The petitioners were A
H. Kannofsky, Hngh McCutcbeon, C. W.
Kraus, Charles Friel, J. Einstein & Co.. Thos.
Murray and Fred. Hampe. Among the allega
tions was that Stenographer Full wood, who
took a report of all the License Court proceed
ings, did not file a copy of the testimony, and a
rule was asked to compel him to do so.
Judge Mageo declined to order this done,
sayini: that it might have been taken for the
private information ot Judge White. The pe
titions were ordered to be filed, but were
marked "refused." Other applications for
rehearings, that were allowed to be filed, were

At the closing hour yesterday all the retail

All but nine of the wholesale licenses have
been issued, and all" bonds have been ap
proved. HOW CAN THE! SELL?
T. M. Mnrsunll, aiajor Brown and Other At
torneys .Know of No Legal Disposal of
Goods for Refilled, Dealers Ohio, or
Auction, the Alternatives.
"What will become of onr siock on
hand?" is the paramount question of the
refused wholesaler and retailer in liquors.
Although Judge White intimated on the
bench that some provision wonld be made
for these luckless ones, it does not follow
that they can consistently dispose of their
goods after May 1, without being amenable to
the law. There have been some very earnest
endeavors on the part of refused licensees to
'get shy of their stock;" but many will have
found this impossible ere the dire dawning of
to-morrow. Many thousands of dollars in
liquor are at stake, and the question is a very
potent one, considering the damaging contin
gencies arising from the refusal of those whose
every cent is invested in their stock and the
difficulty found in disposing of it.
A Dispatch writer inquired into the legal
ity of selling without license this "branded"
(by Judge White) stuff, and the results of bis
researches are as follows:
Hon. Thomas M. Marshall replied, in answer
to the question, "Have the refused wholesalers
and retailers any subterfuge by which they can
dispose of their goods In the city af terJJay It"
KO BIGHT TO SELL AT ALL.
"No, sir; no more than you have. If they do
they are violating the law just the same as an
unlicensed trafficker of liquor, and are in
jeopardy as much as anyone who violates the
law. The only way I can see how they can
realize anythingn their stock is to pnt it in
the hands of an auctioneer, who is vested in
the right by his license to sell anything from a
pair of pants to a house and lot, in a public
mart. Tnis they will hardly resort to, as their
liquors would be subject to a great sacrifice,
under the hammer of an auctioneer."
Mr. John C. Shoemaker, who lias been inter
ested in the late License Court in behalf of his
clientele, corroborated the above statement,'
adding, Jiowerer, that there was some little
consolation in the fact that Pennsylvania was
not the only State in the Union, and the late
license revolution here Would prove that
"westward, the course of 'licklre' takes its
way." This implies that Ohio is the Oklahoma
of our unlucky liquor men.
Mr. John Lambie was approached, and ha ad
mitted that he had not paid enough attention
to the matter in question to venture an opin
ion: "but," adaedhe. "what's the matter with
the liquor men sending tne stuff to Ohio or
some other Stater'
Mr. P. C. Knox was engaged, but one of the
lawyers in the offlce said that be had understood
Judge White made some statement in which
he promised the liquor men a chance to dispose
of their goods on hand. -"To sell without
license would of course be a violation," said
he, "but the foregoing was my impression of
the matter, as learned through the papers."
INTEE-STATE SALES OKLY.
Major A M. Brown was also accosted by the
reporter, to whom the same question was put.
"Well," said he, "Ihave not looked thorough
ly into the matter; bat my opinion, from a
legal standpoint, is that the refused people's
only recourse is to sell it out of the State. Or,
perhaps, they can place It in the hands of an
agent who has license. I cannot see that Judge
White has the power to make -a provision by
which any saan refused can sell liaaer after
May 1. . Mayhap some of the latter will act as
agents for a wholesaler who has license, and In
that way can dispose of the stock without di
rect violation of- the law, . The auctioneer
could be called upon: but I doubt that any are
willing to Incur any such pecuniary loss as
would naturally follow the public outcry and
sale of their goods."
The Major was also sounded on the consti
tutional right of Judge" White to deprive a
person of a function of bis citizenship by un;
seating him from a Councilmanic chair to ac
count of his being an applicant for license.
"In the abstract, Juago White errs, and! am
aware of no law vesting him with that power;
but, when the Councilman was questioned, he
was told he could accept either alternative,
'resign your seat, or lose your license.' The
latter was accepted, of coarse. There is alegal
point, however, in this fact, whiclvno doubt,
leaves something tangible to act upon when
Judge White returns, and the three Judges sit
in banc to listen to arguments for rehearings,"
THE 1MP0RED ITALIANS.
They Were Only Employed nt Duquesne to
Save the Firm a Loss of S100 a Day on
Can An Indlsnation Mediae Held.
There are no startling developments in
the Duqusne strike, beyond the fact of the
importation yesterday of 46 Italians, who
were rnn into the mill yard at noon. They
were put at work unloading cars which have
been accumulating on th'o P., V. fc C. tracks,
since the strike began. There are in the neigh
borhood of 100 cars, lying on tho sidings, loaded
with pig iron, coke, ore, etc. The railroad
company levies a demurrage charge of $1 per
car each 24 hours the cars are left loaded. To
save this expense of abont 5100 per day
the company hired the Italians. ,
When the men arrived the strikers tnough tthe
intention was to try to put them to work in tho
mill. There were about 70 of them in 'tho
party when they were hired, but the committee
of strikers at the Fourth Avenue station per
suaded 35 of them not to go. It was reported
last night that 5 of the 48 jumped over the
fence about dusk and started for Pittsburg.
In addition to the men who went up at noon,
6 Italians' arrived on the 426, and 2 negroes
on the 2:35 trains. It was supposed the two
latter came from the Black Diamond works,
and knew something about making steel.
The strikers held a meeting last night, and
Indignantly discussed the importation of the
Italians. In their objections they are backed
up by the citizens of tho town, who say: "The
lepers will do nothing but breed disease in the
township." After discussing the question
letters were read from tho merchants of Turtle
Creek and vicinity, who denied that any of the
strikers bad been to their stores after dynamite
or any other explosive. The letters were from
the following named storekeepers: W. H.
Semens, Hunter & Cypress, William H. Cribbs,
J. M. Larimer, Joseph B, Hezlop, Finley Mc
intosh and W. B. Brush.
A Committee on Finances reported they
would have 51,000 by Thursday. The supply
store for the strikers will be opened to-day.
The men who are wanted in court will respond
on Saturday. John Gilhooly, the man who was
arrested at the instigation of his wife for non
support, and who was .taken out of the.mill by
two constables, was released from jail by order
of tho Court yesterday. The strikers will try
to persuade him to go back.
At 10 o'clock last night the town was as quiet
as a tomb. The deputy sheriffs patrolled the
grounds, but they had nothing to do. Inside
the mill there appeared to be no life. The
wnole plant was lighted up by natural gas.
At 725 a pistol shot was heard'on the side of
the mill nearest the riser. A number of the
men gathered around and rushed to the spot,

THE BAKEES' STRIKE,
In Marvin's Factory Union Men Will Not Go
to. Work With Others.
The Bakers' Union, I. A. 7247, K". of Xj.,
held a meeting last night in Knights of
Labor Hall, and decided to call all the
union cracker bakers afS. S. Marvin's factory
out on a strike. The trouble has been brewing
at that place for some time. According to the
union men. It is alleged that Mr. Marvin has a
lot of non-unionists at work, and also a nnmber
of bakers who are in arrears with their dues to
the union. A committee waited upon Mr.
Marvin last week and asked him to rectify the
matter and run a union shop.
At a meeting of the union held last Saturday,
night the men wero invited to be present; ana
the union members offered tho men the follow
ing alternative: The non-union employes were
to come into the assembly by paying the usual
initiation fee, and the union men were to pay
up their arrears. Time'to consider that propo
sition was given them until last night; but, as
none of them appeared last night, the union
declared a strike in the factory.

HE RELATES A THBILLING ST0EI
About HowHe Crossed Over tho Dead-Line
of the Mysterious Eealm.
TEE TRATELEE'S NIGHT ET .PITTSBURG
George Kennan is no orator." The dis
tinguished traveler is a better writer than a
speaker. There is more of the terseness of
a practical conversationalist in his style
than the artistic design and finish of the
platform rhetoritician. He is a journalist
all over. He builds up a lecture as thongh
he were writing an article for the daily
newspaper. He makes it "a story." Its
aim is not so much to instruct, to describe,
or to moralize, as it is to simply interest
and entertain the auditor.
To do this last night for perhaps the most
cultured and critical Pittsburg audience
that ever filled LafayetteTHall, Mr. Ken
nan resorted to a plan common in journal
ism. Xess than one-third of his address
was devoted to the information he secured in
Sibera. The other two-thirds explained bow
he secured it. Rather than tell what he did,
he told how he did it. That was
exactly what the people wanted
to kuow. Kennan, with the instinct of a jour
nalist, knew that everybody was curious to see
him and hear him talk about himself. And
with that fine distinction, which a newspaper
man makes between modesty and pnblic mar
tyrdom, Kennan was able to talk all evening
abont himself without a blush.
A MAEVEL0U3 MAS".
The lecture being given nnder the auspices
of the Press Club, Major Harry Byram, of the
Chronicle Telegraph, introduced Mr. Kennan.
Probably 500 ladies and gentlemen faced the
explorer of cold, cruel, mysterious Siberia. It
was what might be termed a magazine audi
ence. Through "tho medium of the Century
everybody there seemed to be well acquainted
with Kennan. The applause which welcomed
him was uuerai.
"The plucky traveler is slightly over the me
dium height and rather slender in build. He
is a little round in the shoulders in consequence
of a lifetime spent at the writing desk. A
grave cast of countenance, which is given
firmness by two sharp eyes and compressed
lips; a mustache only: a largo bald spot on
the top of his head; skin that in some shades
of light seems almost sallow all combine to
make you wonder how a man like him was"
ever able to withstand the exposure of Siberian
winters, the nervous strain of tne perils he un
derwent, and tho exhaustion of writing, writ
ins;, still writing, it all up. Kennan is a stronger
fellow than he looks.
The details which made his most ordinary
talk of last evening very graphic and thrilling
were about his adventures in gaining the confi
dence of political exiles in the mines of Kara,
and In securing the consent of the Government
to see the convicts. Kara is
4,000 MILES FEOM ST. PETEBSBUEQ,
in the Transbaikal, lying between two ranges
of mountains, and about 1,000 miles from the
Pacific coast. Accompanied by Artist Frost,
of Boston, Mr. Kennan said he ar
rived at this desolato place lato In
the winter of 18S5. He was at
once handicapped in his investigations by be
ing invited by the Governor of Kara to become
his guest. There were no hotels or taverns, so
he had to accept the hospitality. This Gov
ernor, said Kennan, was the embodiment of po
liteness. but It was soon found that he bad
given up his ordinary duties to attend the
American visitors. The guests were never
alone, if they took down their bats the Gov
ernor took down his. If they went out to look
at the stars the Governor also went but. This
sort of thing bothered Kennan, for as he said:
"I realized that it was useless to ask for con
sent to see the political exiles who belonged to
the 'free command,' i. e lived in little huts
outside the prison walls by ticket-of-leave. To
see them I would have to act secretly. I had
the names of several on my person, and brought
them letters from their friends in Euro
pean Russia. But the country around
these huts swarmed with cossacks
and gendarmes and foreigners were
watched closely at all times. Captain Neecolln
was tho commandant overthe "free command"
of political oonvicts. He was unpopular with
the Governor and all the soldierly. That only
complicated matters for me .until I resolved.to
make use of this enmity between the officers.
Suddenly my host, the Governor, was called to
another part of the Transbaikal on military
business. In his absence of several days I
changed my quarters to the house of Captain
A QiME AT BLTJFF.
Mr. Kennan describes this officer of the gen
darme as a most consummate liar. For Instance,
he tried to make the American believe that
political exiles had no labor to perform; that
they sat about reading, eating and making
merry In nicely furnished drawing rooms; that
he, Neeco.m, was the shrewdest officer
in Siberia; that he was a match
for tho smartness of political prison
ers because insearchragthem he had happened
to think of looking in their ears, mouth and
hollow teeth for concealed letters, and that
actually he did find in each of those cavities
"When he told me this," says Kennan, ''I
trembled for my safety, for upon my person at
that moment I carried from friends in Russia
to certain prisoners two China teacups, a small
mirror and a red feather duster."
Kennan allowed Neecolm to go ahead lying,
letting him get the impression that he was an
innocent, unsophisticated American tourist,
not at all anxious to know about political pris
oners. Kennan continues the narrative:
"Then I pitched in and told that Captain my
whole life. I told him more than I bad ever
told my dearest friends. He evidently took me
at last for the greenest kind of a customer. He
thought be had deceived me, but I think I de
ceived him just as bad. At least, I think he
knows that by this time. Of course my actions
could not be excused on high moral grounds,
but I hope tho recording angel will drop a tear
on all I said and.blot out my manifold sins."
The lecturer then described the midnight er
rands be was able to make to the hut of Miss
Nattalle Armfeld, a young lady exiled for con
nection with a meeting of revolutionists, whose
only companion was her aged mother, who had
voluntarily came 4,000 miles "across Siberia to
share her cultured daughter's fate. These
visits were only made after Kennan bad been
in the place five days, so hard had it been
to elude the Governor, and then the
iCaptain of the gendarmes. Miss Armfeld
'gathered other political convicts into her hut
:Tho information Kennan gained from them
has all been printed in'his papers.
One night tbey were surprised by the genda
rmes and Kenuan narrowly escaped detection.
The Governor returning In a f ewdays, inter
fered with further visits to the ticket-of-leave
huts or prisons. Captain Neecolin heard of
the nocturnal investigations Kennan had been
carrying on and informed the Governor. The
latter official assailed Kennan. and the traveler
hearing a search of his baggage, burned valu
ble letters of convicts, sketches, maps and
much memoranda which, if found on his per
son, would not only have resulted in his im
prisonment in Siberia, but would have impli
cated and endangered scores of officials and
exiles who bad trusted him implicitly with their
confidence. So hazardous was the nature of bis
mission that before be had left St. Petersburg,
the United States legation there had full in
structions how to make inquiries and search
for Kennan and Frost in case they didnot
return to European Rhssia in six months.
During the lecture Mr. Kennan excused
himself a few moments and then reappeared
on the stage dressed in the full garb ofa Siber
ian exile-clothes that had actually .been worn,
by convicts at Kara.

A HE W 6AS COMPAST'
Messrs. Stone, WHion and Others Pay la
'8258,089 to Build a Pipe Use An
olber field to bo Developed.
A number of gentlemen met at the
Seventh Avenue Hotel last evening to com
plete the organization of a natural gas com
pany. About 15 were present at the meet
ing, among the' number R. B. Stone, of
Pittsburgh Harry V. Wilson, of Indiana;
a Mr. "Stewart, and some others.
Mr. John H. Dilks, the agent of the
Chester Pipe'Company, was on hand to bid
for the pipe contract.
As nearly as could be learned the capital,
stock of ,the company is $250,000. Mir.
Stone takes 75,000, agreeing to pay in 35 per,
cent in cash "at once. Some of the other gen
tlemen present took $10,000 a piece, so that
there was not mdeh trouble to secure the neces
sary amount of boodle to carry on the concern.
Mr. Stone when asked for further details
said: "It is true the organization is completed,
and personally I have no objection to making
the facts public, but some of those interested
with me are not willing; and I mnst obey their
wishes. Yes, It is trne we intend to build a
pipe line, but I am not at liberty to locate the
territory; b'ecausQ we anticipate some compe
tlon and are anxious to avoid it"
Mr. Stone declined to say anything farther.
The presence of Mr. Dilks, who built tne Tide
water pipe line, led the reporters at first to be
lieve that another refinery and pipe line was to
be built The gentlemen talked of expending
S137.000 for machinery, and this fact could be
explained In no other way. An attorney who is
on the inside and knows all about the plans
of the gentlemen, denied that a refinery
and pipe line was contemplated, but that
the organization is nothing more than a plain
natural gas company. Where the field is lo
cated or whether tbey will run their line into
the city or not could not be ascertained, bnt
the presence of Mr. Wilson, of Indiana, would
indicate that the new concern will come into
competition with the Southwest Natural Gas
