"What Has Happened Since
1EYIEW OF GEEAT EVENTS,
Made by the Speakers at the Big
Pittsburg Mass Meeting,
INTHE CENTRAL RLNK1AST NIGHT.
An Attendance of Close Upon 4,000 Ladies
DESCRIPTION OP THE HALL DECORATION
If all the small pictures of George "Wash
ington pinned to the pillars of Grand Cen
tral Sink last night had been taken down
and spread together they -would not have
formed a square big enough to cover the
immense crayon portrait of the Father of
his Country on the rear wall of the halL It
was a: striking decoration for the back of
the stage. A frame was made for the upper
part of the portrait with evergreen,
which tapered away at the bot
tom, in the heavy folds of
two large silk flags. Bed, white
and blue streamers of bunting canopied the
stage. Coils of tissue paper completely
hid from view the unsightly iron beams and
braces of the main ceiling. The facade of
the gallery was wrapped in heavy garlands
ot color. In fact, the whole interior flut
tered with each breath of air like the shift
ing hues of a kaleidoscope. Out of so little
material pretty effects had been secured.
There was no banners, no mottoes, no de
signs, no emblems to work npon nothing
but the plain red, white and blue of the
nation and the face of George "Washington.
A VEET LARGE CONCOURSE.
Betwien 3,000 and 4,000 people crowded
the hall to take part in the mass meeting in
honor ol the inauguration of President
"Washington 100 years ago. The seating ar
rangements were admirable. There were
present people of every grade of prominence.
On the platform and through the audience
were noticed the following named well
known gentlemen: President Holliday, ot
Councils; Henry Hale, William Diehl,
Judge Ewing, Dr. J. Guy McCandiess, Dr.
AH, Prof. George Luckey, James Beed,
Major A. J. Pentecost, B. S. P. McCall,

It was 8 o'clock before Gernert and
Guenthers' orchestra struck up a medley,
which concluded with the soul-inspiring
tune of "America." As a fitting companion
for this, the Alpine Quartet sang "Flag
"Without a Stain."

James Hood, Chairman of the Centennial
Committee, announced that Mr. H. I.

PBESrDEXT ADAMS' SPEECH.
One hundred years ago this SOth of April the
crowning act was performed which put into
operation the Constitution of onr Government,
and to-day, wherever on the land or on the sea
our flag is lilted by the winds of heaven, hearts
are moved with gratitude that a new child was
born into the family of nations.
Within this hundred years how has civiliza
tion been transformed 1 When Washington
took the oath of office Watt had just produced
that most wonderful ot inventions, which not
only, as Lord Jeffrey said, could "draw out
without breaking a thread as fine as gossamer,
and lift a thip or war like a bauble in the air,"
but was to thrust its myriad arms into the
varied activities of life, and so usurp the con
trol of all the industries of the world.
George Stephenson, a boy of 8, was learn
ing to read at a night school,
while in the day time he was
assisting his father to earn a living in a colliery
in jMoruiuinDeriana, iirue areaming, at mat
time, of the enrious machine with which, lust
25 years later, he was to astonish the world by
drawing the first tram of railway cars at the
rate of four miles an hour. Arkwnght had,
three vears before, been knighted by George
the Third for his invention of the spinning
jenney, and Compton was just reaping the first
fruits of his new invention of the power loom.
This series of inventions, unparalleled in the
history of industry, was just ushering in a new
era; and when one thinks of the myriad forms
In which tbey have been applied one is tempted
to say that the most dominant characteristic of
recent times has been the application, the de
velopment and the influence of the new discov
eries that were made tbout a century ago.
POLITICAL LESSONS, TOO.
Indeed, wbat have not the inventions of the
last hundred years accomplished? Grain is
now shipped from the Mississippi and the
Uanges to Liverpool for less than the cost of
transportation a hundred years ago from one of
the midland counties of England to London, or
from the center of Massachusetts to Boston
and thus it has come about that the necessities
of one locality are so easily supplied from the
superabundance of another that famine and
want havo been thwarted; and the ajrjrreirate
population of the civilized portion of the globe,
which before for a thousand years had been
nearly stationary, now within a hundred years
has more than doubled. Then, too, electneity,
"Savage of the skies, that men have caught.
And some scant use of language taught, ''
has joined these other forces, not only as if to
bind them all together and make each helpful
to the other, but also as if to give them in some
sense a consciousness of independence as or
ganic parts of one stupendous whole.
What has been the political lesson of a hun
dred years; When the Constitution was
adopted thero were many misgivings as to its
permanency. It is not stranee that the views
of theframers were very diverse. They had
come from communities that had been settled
under widely differing circumstances; and. as
yet, they were not bound together by those sys
tems of inter-State communications wh.ch two
generations later were to weld us into one na
tionality. Some of the estimates of the Con
stitution and of the results of its adoption are
to us as instructive as tbey are interesting. Let
us transport ourselves back to the time, and
for a few moments contemplate these opinions.
One group of them, perhaps best represented
by Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry,
neither of them in the convention, held that
far too creat concessions had been made by the
individual States to the Federal Government,
and that the States were consequently in great
danger of losing their proper authority over
local affairs. This danger, in the judgment of
Jefferson, declared itself in several provisions
of the Constitution. It was found m the au
thority given to the President; in the inde
pendence given to the Senate; and especially
in the powers accorded to the Supreme Court.
We find Jefferson using words which fall
strangely on our ears at the present aay. For
example, Jefferson wrote in 17S7:
SOME STEANGE FEARS.
Beason and experience tell us that the first mag
istrate will always be re-elected. If he may he re
elected. He is then an officer lor life. This once
observed, It becomes of so much consequence to
certain nations, to have a friend or a foe at the
head of our affairs, that they will Interfere with
money and with arms. A Galloman or an Anglo
man will be supported by the nation he defends.

party. On the contrary, the followers of Ham
ilton and Adams believed that the weaknesses
of the new Constitution consisted of too little
power on the part of the Federal Government
in comparison with the powers reserved to the
government of the respective States.
EEAL MISTAKES OF THE FATHEBS.
Nor were the errors of the fathers confined
to criticism and denunciation. It happens,singu
larly enough, that while the goddess of his
tory, sitting In judgment for a hundred years on
theirprediction, has sometimes convicted them
of having sounded alarms that were ground
less; she has also found them sometimes at
fault as to those parts of the Constitution that
they regarded as especially worthy of com
mendation. It is a noteworthy fact, as Hamil
ton once pointed out, that almost the only part
of the Constitution which escaped without
censure, and indeed passed with what may be
called universal approval, was that provision
by which the President was to be chosen bv
the system of electors. This act seems to have
met with universal favor. It was evervwhpm
commended as a choosing of the President by
putting the choice into the bands of a college
ot able and independent electors, who should
be cho:en by the people for the pur
pose, and then, removed from the tur
moil of party strife and the temptations
of popular clamor, should exercise their
deliberate wisdom in determining who in all
the country was the fittest man for the chief
magistracy of the nation. In view of a century
of experience, how singular, bow almost gro
tesque even, now appears this universal com
mendation of the fathers. And so, as if to
make It impossible that we should fall into the
Oriental error of worshipping our ancestors
we find that as, on the one hand, the Supreme
Court, which was most vigorously denounced,
has emerged from the experience of a century
amid the"heartiest plaudits of the people, so,
on the other, the college ot electors, whith re
ceived the highest marks of approbation from
the fathers, has most completely failed to per
form the part alotted to it, has withered into
insignificance, and is ready to be cast out into
And, while the fathers thus thought they
foresaw evils which have never appeared, it a
also worthy of note that tbey failed to foresee
some of the most noteworthy causes of anx
iety that now confronts us. We have ceased
to fear that the President will usurp a crown.
The ghost of a coming Cresar does not terrify
us. We no longer have any anxietv lest the
Supreme Court will obliterate the tate lines,
and destroy local rights. We have ceased to
regard it a misfortune that the Senate is one
stcn more removea irom nomiiar ptnmn. ft,..
is the House of Representatives. But we are
obliged to confess that other evils have arisen
before us; that anxieties of another nature
now confront us.
UEME8IS OP H1STOBT.
It cannot be said that the evils of slavery, or
tho evil effecM of slavery, were not understood
either by the North or the South. Moreover.
it was generally believed that slavery would
soon pensn oi its own mnercnt weakness, and
so slavery was left to the States themselves.
The cotton gin soon brought into the question
the tremendous weight of great pecuniary in
terests, and this proved too great a counter
poise to the moral forces that seemed upper
most in the convention. In how striking a man
ner has been illustrated the great truth uttered
by Mason that Providence punishes national
sins by national calamities. How completely
the Nemisis of history has done and is still do
ing; its work is sadly attested by the national
debt, by the pension rolls, by national ceme
teries scattered over the Union, by the soldiers'
monuments that mourning hearts and pious

land, and, as we have reason to fear, most ex
pressive ana most persistent oi all, by the sad
heritage, at the &ett perpUxteg peMttwl
problem that is to confront the second century
of our national existence.
But, if the problems that had' been thrust
upon tho nation by slavery were in some meas
ure foreseen by the fathers, there were others,
only second in importance, that wero not re
vealed to their vision. A part of these have
been the outcome of events and conditions
that could not be foreseen. So far as they are
the product of the inventions and dis
coveries of the century, they are not, of course,
to be charged to any lack ot acumen or of
learning on the part of the father. Of this
class is the so-called struggle between capital
and labor. But tbere are certain others of
consummate importance of such an import
ance indeed as to awaken the grave appre
hensions ot the most thoughtful persons every-
The first of these is what may as well be
called the ignorant vote. The fathers did not
advocate universal suffrage. On the contrary,
their traditions and their customs were con
trary to such a practice. But the consequences
are upon us. It were folly to shut our eyes to
the fact that at the opening of the second
century of our national existence, the most
difficult political problem confronting the
country is the question whether the Ignorant
and corruptible vote can be either so elevated
or purified as to make it reasonably certain
that the results of our elections will not be de
termined by ignorance and vice under the
leadership of unscrupulous ambition.
PBOBLEMS ABE OVEBCOME.
The problems of to-day, then, are very differ
ent from the problems presented to the fathers
100 years ago. The one great truth, the one
great lesson, of the first hundred years of our
national life, as it seems to me, is the unques
tionable fact that tho moral and political judg
ment of the people has been equal to the de
mand of the great emergencies inai nave Deen
pressed upon it. We have met the evih pointed
out by our fathers, ana all of them, and may
fairly say in no spirit of boasting, but in the
soberness of an Impartial historical judgment,
that we have overcome tncm. ...,.

second century, we have new and other causes

member that history thus far justifies the be
lief that these evils may safely be intrusted to
the flexibility of our institutions, and to the In

ADDRESS OF S. U. TBENT, ESQ.
S. TJ. Trent, Esq., delivered an address in
which he said:
Majestic and unequaled in human annals is
the career of Washington. Calm in the midst
of conspiracy; inspiring order and spirit into
troops hungry and in rags; stung by ingrati
tude, but betraying no anger and ever ready to
forgive; strong in council; wise in policy; terri
ble as a storm in battle; invincible in defeat:
magnanimous in conquest; incorruptible in vir
tue; and never so sublime as when he laid down
his victorious sword, refused the Protectorate,
and sought the peace of private life. His in
deed is a character to admire and revere, a life
without a stain, a fame without a flaw. In
moral grandeur he rises above all others who
sit in our world's congregation of glorv. God
bless the memory of Washington! Glorious
Father and first President of the Republic,
whose hallowed flag now floats over a vast con
tinent of Commonwealths, and pours aronnd
us and G0,00u,000 of free people such a golden
air as no millions ever breathed before; a Re
public that has been reared by a century of
patriotic labor and the unsparing sacrifice of

My Dear Sir I desire to express my thanks
for your kind invitation to be present at Pitts

Excellent Attendance Generally nt
Churches Vesterdqy Morning.
Pursuant to announcement, more than
half a hundred churches in the two cities
were opened yesterday morning for thanks
giving and praise in observance ot the Cen
tennial occasion. There were many inter
esting services, the subjects of the ser
mons for which have been heretofore pub
lished; and. as they were so uniform in pa
triotic terms and expression, tbere was a
certain sameness about them which would
lend very little variety to even the fullest
reports thereof. Host noticeable for its fine
music was the service at St. Peter's Cathe
dral in Allegheny, where Bishop Phelan
presided and preached.
The services of the Jewish congregations
were also specially noticeable, both for
the beauty and fervor that characterized
them; those at the Eighth Street Temple, of
course, taking the lead in the morning.
There was but one afternoon service of a
religious character. At the congregation
B'nai Israel, corner of Grant street and
Third avenue, imposing centennary observ
ances were neia. At 4 p. m. the exercises
opened with an interesting address by Eabbi
.Ziewietz in Hebrew, giving an account of
"Washington's life and influence. This was
followed by a solemn prayer in iront of the
i ark, the whole congregation standing, for
ithe repose of the soul ot Washington.
Next came an address in English bv Mr.
J. Kornblum, who pronounced the Father
oi his Country the Messiah of Judaism
the first to proclaim freedom to all peoples.
He reviewed the historv of the first Presi.
,dent, eulogized his chatacter, and concluded
! with the statement that the best wav Wash

Pittsburgwas in a "rudimentary state a
small military post on the outskirts of civ
ilizationwhen "Washington was inaugu
rated President of a small strip oi settled
country on the Atlantio coast in 1789. The
principal business of the citizens of that day
was to keep out of the way of the Indians
and produce enough hog and hominy to
keep body and soul together. For mutual
protection against the savages they huddled
around the fort at what is now known as the
Point. There they built their log cabins,
and there they lived, gun in hand, during
the day and keepinir one eye open when
they slept at night, so as to be always ready
to repel attacks by the redskins.
They had no markets at which to pur
chase the delicacies of the season, includ
ing strawberries at 50 cents a quart and Ber
muda potatoes at the rate of ?10 a bushel.
For meat, they depended mttinly upon the
fruits of the chase, game being abundant.
BEAR, DEER AND TUEKXYS
abounded in the forest on both sides of the
river where Allegheny City and the South
side boroughs now stand, while water fowl
reveled in a pond or lake with marshy bor
ders, the deepest part of which was not far
from the postoffice building.
The few acres they cultivated lay between
what is now "Wood street and the fort; but
their crops ere neither varied nor extens
ive, consisting of corn. Tjotatnes and henns.
They knew nothing about tomatoes at 25
cents apiece, and wheaten bread existed
only in their traditions. Corn bread and
bear meat were the staple articles of food.
Coffee, sugar and salt were luxuries almost
beyond their reach. Occasionally small
quantities of these delicacies were brought
over the mountains on the backs of horses,
which were the express trains of that period.
They had no real estate boom, but lauds
were held iu common. As they were not
an imaginative people, it is reasonable to
suppose that none of them ever dreamed
that within less than a hundred years the
land upon which they lived, or which thev
cultivated, would be worth $3,000 to J5.000
a front foot This was their only serious
mistake. And so, good, brave men that
they were, they plodded along, building up
the settlement, which soon became one of
the principal bulwarEs of civilization, hurl
ing back the Indian hordes that came up
against it, and securing reasonable protec
tion to property and Jile. This was the be
ginning of Pittsburg.
"WORK WELL DONE.
It would be a violent presumption to as
sert that those bold pioneers knew they were
laying the foundations of one of the greatest
cities of modern times. It would be more
reasonable to believe that they were so en
grossed with their struggles for subsistence
tnat they had no time to think of the fu
ture, leaving their work to stand or fall, to
-urvive or perish, according as coming gen
erations would esteem it good or bad. It
was a clear case of "building better than
Modern Pittsburg the outgrowth of the
little settlement at the Point is too well

Slowly, step by step, not with a rush and a
hurrah, but calmly and deliberately,she has
grown in population and importance, until
to-day she stands among the foremost of the
industrial and commercial cities of the
world. A few figures will make the state
mentclearer. She has"?132,478,O0O of capi
tal invested in manufacturing enterprises,
giving employment to over 100,000 persons.
Herdrygoods trade amounts to $20,000,000
annually, hardware to $2,000,000. drugs to

in the vicinity of the city. One-fifth of
the iron and steel output bf the country is
credited to Pittsburg. She is the only city
in the world having au inexhaustible sup

This wonderful growth this almost
phenomenal expansion has not exhausted
the energies of the grand old city. She is
still growing, still reaching out, still seek

only sharpen her appetite for greater
achievements. Her population of 250,000
will soon swell to 600000. Her past is se

can complete the work began by the hardy
pioneers, keeps her abreast of the enlighten

the discharge of an imperative duty.
TWO COWBOY DETECTIVES
Take an Alleged Murderer From Arkassas
to Boston for a Kownrd.
rBFECIAr-XEI-KOItAU TO THST DISPATCH.
Boston, April 30, Tlje interest in the
"White murder? case at Braintree was re
awakened last night when two specimens of
the genus cowboy strode into the police
station on Division street, after midnight,
dragging a heavily manacled wretch whom
tbey claim was the murderer of the aged
woman. They had come all the way irom
Arkansas to claim the $1,000 reward which
had been offered for the arrest and convic
tion of the murderer. They claimed to be
detectives. .Each was dressed in typical
cowboy style, with high-topped boots, som
brero and cartridge belt with a "gun" on
each side. They gave the names of Alson
Tams and Geo. "W. Chapman. They said
their prisoner was John Thompson, the
much-wanted murderer. He did not say
anything until the Boston police took
charge of him, and then he created a sensa
tion by telling how the Arkansas police
had forced a confession from him. .
He denied that he was John Thompson,
and offered proof that he was Giduey B.
Green. He asserts that four men dragged
him into the woods in Jackson county,
Arkansas, tied a rope around his neck,
strung him up until his toes barely touched
the ground, and threatened to hang-him un
less ne confessed to the murder of Miss
'White in the distant State of Massachu
setts. To save his life he confessed, so he
now says. The confession is so full of state
ments utterlyat variance with the facts that
it was at once decided by the Boston police
at the man is either a lunatic or his
captors were easily dnped. The prisoner
was taken to Quincy, and was formally held
to await identification. Intimate friends of

rfPICIAL T2XEOKA1I TO THE DISPATCH.!
Montreal, Auril 30. This afternoon 12
residents of the little village of St. Clothilde,
one Of whom, Sancrede St. Ours, was accom
panied by Marie, his 12-year-old dauehter,
left in a small boat to cross
the Nicolet river to Ste. Anne. It was raining
and a thick to; bung on the river. When in
the middle of the river, which is tbere a mile and
a half wide, a'sndden squall overtook the boar,
which was greatly overloaded, and she began to
leak. As the squall increased the men tried to
put back to St. Clothilde, but in turnine the
boat capsized and all were thrown into the
water. Three of tho men, who were cood
swimmers, immediately struck out for the
shore, while the remaining men clung
to the overturned boat. St. Ours, who,
being unable to swim, was holdine with one
band, while with the other he supported his
little daughter. Seeing. that the boat was un
able to float he left it, and clung to a couple of
boards which had been on the bottom. The
f o prevented the accident from beinc seen on
shore, and It was not nritil the swimmers
reached it that a boat put off to the rescue.
By the time it reached the overturned boat
Jean Mariot and Ulricb Lalonde had dropped
off and disappeared. The others were so ex
hausted that tberecuers drained them Into
theirboat before going to the assistance of St,
Ours and bis child, who by this time had
drifted about 50 vards awar. One of the
boards which, formed their frail support was
seen to drift away, and It was also noticed
that the remaining one was insufficient
to float both. It was then that the
father's love and heroism Showed it
self. Seeing, no doubt, that help
could not arrive in time to save both, he gave
np his only hope. He took a handkerchief
from his neck and bound his child's arm to the
board, and then sank to rise no more. Almost
the next instant the insensible childboundto
the board was safe in the boat of the rescuers.

in the Findlay Field.
rsrSCIAt TZLEOIUM TO TUX DISPATCH. 1
Futdlat, April 30. The Standard Oil
Company made a deal this morning that has
scared Findlay as badly as the approach of
a'oyclone. The great monopoly bought the
monster Millott gas well, which is almost
within the city and is considered the biggest
gas well in Ohio, if not in the world, right
from under the noses of the Findlay Gas
Trustees and the Gas Board of Toledo both
of whom were negotiating for its purchase.
The Standard paid $25,000 cash for the well
and $8 per acre per annum for 660 acres of
gas territory surrounding the well.
This gives the Standard a hold on the

been scheming, and it is feared this wonder
