tfew Legal Moves to Bring Bottlers

GOSSIP ON THE ABSORBING TOPIC
Anti-Prohibitionists Meet and Look Toward
VIEWS OP LEGAL UKLICEKSED SALES
'Squire A. H. Leslie, Secretary of the Ex
ecutire Committee which is managing the
Constitutional amendment campaign in
Allegheny county, has returned home from
a meeting of the State Central Committee at
Philadelphia. He said to a reporter last
night that, although there does exist an
apathy among church people, he still be
lieves that the public sentiment in Penn
sylvania is for absolute prohibition, and
that if this sentiment cau be crystalized the
Constitutional amendment will be adopted
on June 18.
"The liquor men, though, are putting
plenty of money in the fight against us,"
said Secretary Leslie. "About two weeks
ago they levied an assessment all over the
State for campaign purposes. In nb instance
was the contribution to be less than $30. By
tbis one collection there was raised in Phila
delphia alono between 6300,000 and $500,000. A
single firm in that city gave 10,000. The
amount raised in Heading and Lancaster was
very large. We do not know yet bow much
was contributed by the brewers, distillers and
liquor dealers of Pittsburg and Western Penn
sylvania, but the snm total of that one assess
ment throughout the State was enormous.
HOW IT IS USED.
', "This money they use in various ways," con
tinued'Sauire Leslie. "We have discovered
that they have many agents and canvassers
under salaries to travel through the country
districts and work up an agitation among the
farmers on this hard cider scare. These men
carry tracts with them, indicate that they have
plenty of leisnre and either stop at the f arm
house fordmner or go out to the fields with
Jiiiu. Before be leaves that farm he has proba
bly left the farmer and his men in a very much
disturbed state of mind about the result of tho
amendment upon the future of cider.
"Then again, the liquor men are paying some
of the more prominent workmen in mills and
factories of this city to keep alive an agitation
against the amendment in his gang of laborers,
or in his particular department of the mill.
This is no wild assertion. We have investi
gated, and we know it to be true that some of
the loudest-mouthed haranguers in mills are
under pay from the liquor men. Besides Ml
this the liquor interests are flooding the States
with tracts containing ancient arguments by
some well-known writers against absolute pro
hibition. They do other literary work also.
They are paying for the naturalization papers
of a great many foreigners in Allegheny and
mOHIBITIOiriSTS HARD UP.
"On the other hand," continued Mr. Leslie,,
"the temperance people aro not so plenty of
money. The committees managing the cam
paign are hard up. Of course, the work is not
crippled, but still goes on. ( We are altogether
dependent upon what the pcoplo voluntarily
contribute to, the cause. We can make no
arbitrary assessments, not being able to hold
out the (promise of future financial reward
the liquor men, who have a money
making business at stake, do. Bnt we have the
popular side of the campaign, and our frienas
should and will contribute of their own free
will. We have not yet collected all the money
which was at first subscribed for the campaign
Mr. Leslie further said that it was difficult to
estimate the effect of the wholesale refusal of
liquor licenses upon the amendment cam
paign. He scarcely thought that there is logic
in the popular idea that the large reduction of
saloons will make votes against prohibition,
because people are chiefly crying "monopoly."
"While that is one of the evils of the high
license principle," said 'Squire Leslie, "the de
feat of prohibition would not better matters.
One old German whom X know has become a
convert to Constitutional amendment since
Judge White's decisions because he says it will
knock out the monopoly hi justice to those who
didn't get license."
The Secretary declared there was no founda
tion to the cider question. He contends that
if the phraseology of the proposed amendment
will stop the manufacture and Eale of hard
cider, then the cider business is not legal under
the present or under past license laws.
MOST IMPORTANT M0YES.
Well-Known Attorneys Take Measures to
Bring Bottlers and Wholesalers Up in
Banc How They Work It.
. John S. Iiobb, Esq., yesterday afternoon
took ont appeals from the decision of
Judge White in refusing liquor licenses to
Einstein & Co., Major C. W. Kraus,
Charles Freel & Co., F. Hampe, Thomas
Murray, Hugh JlcCutcheon and John
Kannofsky. In all seven cases Mr. Robb pro
cured writs of certiorari to the Supreme Court
These men are all beer bottlers.
The grounds on which the appeals are made
are that the Court of Quarter Sessions of Alle
gheny county had no discretion in the matter
of granting licenses to bottling establishments,
and that the court below erred in refusing
them. It is claimed that the court must grant
licenses to all applicants who show that tbey
are citizens of the United States; that they are
of good moral character; that they file their
bond, and that a tender be made of the amount
of the license fee. Tho question of bottlers'
license has never before been in the Supreme
Court, nor has the point of law involved ever
been carried to that tribunal.
Attorney Morton Hunteryesterday, followed
by a number of wholesale liquor dealers who
had been refused license, entered the Clerk of
Courts' office. He presented petitions and
bonds in the cases of bis clients, demanding
that wholesale licenses be issued to them under
the provisions of the old law of 1S72. He was
referred to the Treasurer, to whom he pre
sented his bonds and tendered the money for
the licenses. The Treasurer refused to accept
and declined to approve tbc bonds. Clerk of
Courts McGunnegle followed by refusing to
register tbe bonds. Tbis course of action was
merely preliminary, and to-day or to-morrow
Mr. Hunter will apply for a mandamus on
Treasurer Hill and Clerk of Courts McGunnegle
to compel tbem to issue the licenses under tbe
old law. Tbis will test the assertion thai the
wholesale act does not come under tbe Brooks
law. The cases Mr. Hunter is working on are
those of J. C Buff nm & Co., First ward: H. L.
Berger, Second ward; John Z. T. Robitzer,
Fourth ward; John Thier, Sixth ward; William
F. Kaiser, Seventh ward; K. J. Bartlett, John
Stewart, Ninth ward: Robert Dunwoody;
Twelfth ward; George Gothardt, Fourth ward,
Petitions for rehearings were filed yesterday
by Emll Saeltzer, wholesale dealer, and Morris
Rosenthal, George Tann. David Hardy and
William P. Mack, retail dealers. Saeltzer
holds tbe Judge's discretion did not extend to
Josiah Cohen will appeal the wholesale deal
ers' cases to the Supreme Court just as soon as
J udge White returns home. He bas to wait in
order to get a record of tbe cases, which can
only be secured on Judge White's order.

K. Q. Bigham, Esq., Tells How Left-Over
Liquor Stocks May be Lcsully Sold
Other Gossip on the Mutter.
The one topic still more generally dis
cussed in this city than any other, even dis
counting the Centennial inaugural business
and all its concomitants, is the judicial ten
pin ball that knocked out so many men on
Tuesday. A lawyer stated yesterday that
he felttoonvinced there would be an enor
mous increase in illegal liquor selling, and he
thought that in a short time it would bo diffi
cult to secure conviotfonsas so large a'portion
of the population is making the cause of the
saloon keeper its own, even people who drink
very little and did not know they were inter
ested until after the knockout He is not a
partisan, but says the leaving of whole districts
dry while there are in others clusters of saloons
has inflamed the minds of many, who say that
if such institutions are a necessity at all they
are as like to be so in one populous business lo
cality as in another.
K. Q. Bigham, Esq., said ho supposed there
would be a large increase in illegal selling. He
referred to the Southside as a very thirsty
locality in spots, and thought it more than
likely if that thirst continued there would be
plenty of people willing to risk imprisonment
for cash. He said he supposed convictions
could be gotten at- present, but that a state
of affairs might be produced that would event
ually make it difficult to hold some jurors
down to conviction in the matter of duty.
Much would depend with some people,
a their interests, or supposed interests,
at least. Mr. Bigham differs from
some other lawyers as to the power of ex-saloon
keepers to dispose of their stock. Ho didn't
think even an auctioneer could legally help
them out, but said the courts would be lenient
and not enforce the law rigidly, as the circum
stances or the case would nave weigui Jir.
Bigham supposed that most of the perishable
stock had been worked off in the few days that
elapsed between the declaration of the verdict
and the last day of grace. As to the rest be
thought that in most instances saloon keepers,
and retailers generally, would be able to re
turn their liquors to the wholesalers and get
credited on their bills with the amount re
A resident of ML Washington who refused
to be quoted stated that he had heard several
men ot means who have been knocked out say
tbey intended to purchase beer in Cincinnati

who wanted to bnv it and they said they knew
a way to defy the law with safety. Tbis man i$r

of the persons who thus expressed their deter
mination to continue ii the business. Some of
them were men who were refused license last
year and respected the law in hope of making
the riffle this, but who now have sworn that
they will die in the last ditch. Said he:'
"if Judgo Whito had been working for the
defeat of the prohibitory amendment, lie

Some people expected the result would he the
conversion of so many saloons into restaurants
that people could in a few weeks board out
cheaper than they could buy the raw material
and cook it, but such doesn't seem likely to be
the case, as there are some restauranters who
already are forced to make fine calculations in
order to get profit out of the business, and they
have a large run of custom, too.
ALL TO BECOME NATDEALIZED.
Tloxr Anti-Prohibitionists Propose to Do
Amir With Foreigners.
The Anti-Prohibition Society held an
other meeting last night on the Southside.
A committee of five was appointed to hire
halls and speakers for three days every
wcekfromMay IS until June IS. The German
Military Association, of Brownstown, sent a
delegate to the meeting with authority to ex
press the sympathy and willingness of that so
ciety to co-operate with the Anti-Prohibitionists.
A discussion was indulged in bearing upon
the subject of the existing tardiness among
immigrants in becoming American citizens. A
sentiment was expressed by the meeting that
a law ought to bo passed by the Legislature to
compel every immigrant who has been in tbis
country live years to become a citizen or else
go back to the land he came from.
SEW STEEET EAILE0ADS
And Severn! Extensions to bo Made Over
On the Kortbslde in tbe Fntnrc.
The Allegheny Committee on Street Rail
roads met last night. The ordinance pro
viding for the building of the Pittsburg and
Bellevue street railway was referred to the
City Solicitor for the purpose of ascertaining
what action of Councils would be legal in the
matter. The ordinance providing for the ex
tension of the Union Line road to Central ave
nue, was referred to a sub-committee who will
go over the proposed' route. An ordinance
providing for the extension of the Pieasant
Valley Railway was withdrawn and that of the
building of tbe Cross Town road substituted
tor it- To this was also added an amendment
which provides for tracks on Montgomery ave
nue to Arch street, to Geyer alley, to Webster
street, to Taylor avenue, to Irwin avenue, to
Washington avenue, to Sedgwick streeL to
California avenue, to Superior avenue.
There are two petitions accompanying the
ordinance, signed by property owners along the
route as well as residents, asking that the right
of way be given the company.
It is proposed to use either horse power or
electricity as the motor, and if the latter, per
mission is asked for leave to erect overhead
wires. From tbe Seventh street bridge the
tracks of the Pleasant Valley Company are to
be used to Federal street and Montgomery ave
nue, wnere me new route Begins, i- nere was
no discussion on the ordinance, and it was or
dered printed for Councils.
During the meeting of the committee a dele
gation of property owners on North avenue ap
peared, among them Messrs. John Thompson,
R. H. Boggs and H. W. McKee. They had
held an informal meeting in one ot the corri
dors of the halls to protest against the erection
of poles now going on for the stringing of elec
tric wires on North avenue. The delegation
intended to protest before the committee, but'
none of them -asked to be heard and the com
mittee adjourned. It is understood the gentle
men will ask tbe court for an injunction re

A Joke rinyed Upon n Well-Knows Person
A cruel trick was perpetrated yesterday
on the old gentleman who is familiar in the
lower part of the town as the "folding-chair
man." Almost any pleasant day he is to be
seen along Wood street, Fourth avenue, or
Grant streeL reclining on a wonderful folding
chair which he has put in position on one side
of tbe pavement. As it is all for the purpose
of advertisement the old fellow affects an in
difference and ease which attract the attention
of people. If he isn't smoking quietly or read

Possibly the sleep he dropped into yesterday
afternoon at the corner of Wood street and
Fourth avenue was more than pretense. He

MB. MALONE DENIES THE CHARGES.
An Allegation That Ho Paid Common

HE IS STILL WAITIKG FOE THE EXPEET
A telegram was received from "Washing
ton last night to the effect that charges had
been preferred against Mr. M. U. Malone,
the new Superintendent of Construction at
the new Government building in this city.
The gentleman was seen at his residence
late last evening, and denied the charges in
toto. They are embodied in the telegram,
"There is considerable discussion at the Su
pervising Architect's office, in the Treasury
Department in regard to the manner in which
Superintendent Malone is starting ont in his
new lease of life, as overseer of the Govern
ment building at Pittsburg. Not only have the
reports which have been published In tbe
Pittsburg newspapers reached the Department
and caused comment but a number of letters
from citizens, as well. It is probable that an
attache of tho architect's office will be sent on
in a few days to examine the.work which Mr.
Malone declares is defective, though an expert
investigated this matter previous to tho
removal of Superintendent Patterson and
pronounced the workmanship excellent The
coming examination will also include tbe stop
page of work on tho building and the employ
ment of skilled workmen who get SI a day to
perturm ordinary labor at unloading and de
livering stone, from tbe cars at the building,
which could be done by common laborers at
wages running from SI to 51 50 a day. The dis
charge of workmen, for tbo purpose of em
ploying some 'of tho superintendent's own
friends, is another thing which will be investi
gated. It was stated at the supervising archi
tect's office to-day that uuon information being
received, of the dismissal of Ginity, the boss
rigger, tbe department addressed a letter of
inquiry to Mr. Malone. asking the reasons for
A LETTEB TESSVItAXSTSa.
"Alerter has been received from Malone,
stating that Ginity has been negligent; that he
permitted machinery and tools to lie about in
all sorts of weather to their great injury; and
so forth. It is admitted that it is rather qneer
that no complaint of tho kind was ever beard
before, and that Ginity should all at once be
come negligent under a new superin
tendent Information has also been received
of the dismissal of tho engineer, a very compe
tent man employed for a long time on the
building. Notwithstanding Mr. Malone's as
sertion that ho has not- stopped work on the
building, it is learned at the department that
not a stroke of work has been done since Mr.
Malone assumed the management
"Coming from the department to-day The
Dispatch correspondent met Contractor Mc
Gowan going in that direction, but upon what
errand the contractor would not say. When
inquiry was made in regard to the discharged
workmen Mr. McGowan said:
'"I do not desire to get into any newspaper
discussion, but in justice to Ginity. the rigger,
and to the engineer, I must say they were first
class workmen. Ginity has been with me for
seven years, and was employed by me on the
Government; buildings at Baltimore, Buffalo,
and one or two other places. Flaherty, who
was appointed in his place, was awoikman
under him. I don't know who bas been ap
pointed engineer. Possibly Mr. Malone's se
lections; MAT BE COMPETENT MEN",
bnt I know that the discharged men were the
very best mechanics in their line, and thor
oughly acquainted with every detail of the
work on the Pittsburg building. When will it
be ready for the roof; That I cannot predict
now. If there bad been no interruption of the
work I am certain it would have been ready I
very early in J uiy. jno, I do not think It was
necessary .for Mr. Malone to take the men from
the building to unload and deliver stone. It
he did that it was a very extraordinary pro
ceeding. That could havo been done by labor
ers while the men could navooneon setting
In regard to the telegram, Mr. Malone said:
"The reason I discharged Ginity was that I
found him a very careless and, apparently, in
competent man. By his fooling with ono of
the derricks he might have caused an accident
that would have resulted in the loss of life. A
few days after I went there I thought one of
tbe large derricks was not altogether safe. I
'ordered Mr. Ginity, who was the rigger, to
make a special examination and report to me
in writing. This he did. He found that the
derrick was cracked across tbe center, about 15
feet from tbe base
"For not knowing that this would causo tho
derrick to fall at any time and for jeopardizing
the lives of not only the workmen upon the
building as well as the people passing by on the
streets, I thought he was an incompetent and
careless man and discharged him. To obviate
the necessity of raising tbo derrick up another
story to set sojpe granite, he simply raised
tbe boom. When, a heavy stone was being
lifted the whole weight was thrown upon the
base of the boom. Tbo latter being 15 feet
from the bottom of the mast tbe center of the
latter had to bear all the weight and the mast
began to bena. This caused it to crack and be
come very weak. It was a bad piece of work,
and for not reporting it to me I thought It best
to let him go. I am under bonds for tbe safety
of everything and am not going to trust things
to men who are so careless.
HE COULDN'T HELP THAT.
"Tho reason the work of setting granite was
stopped was mainly on account of the corner
being 1 inches out of level. In order to exon
erate me from any blame that might after
ward arise I asked the department to send a
man to investigate the work. While we were
waiting for tho man and to reduce the'delay to
the work to a minimum I concentrated all my
efforts to get tho SO carloads of granite un
loaded and stored in tbe yard. Tbe statement
that men at S4 per .day were employed unload
ing this stone is false. Tbe only man who got
H per day who was working while
tbe stone was being unloaded was the
derrick rigger. While we were waiting
on tbe expert the men whom I could
use on the derricks were employed cleaning up
the yard and taking an inventory ot what was
on nana. v mie ine aernccs were gathering up
the iron, etc, we could not have done any work
if we wanted to. It so happened that I could
work at unloading the stone and taking stock
while we were waiting on the expert from the
department Another man, who continued
working after the time tbe work of setting
stone was stopped; was Mr. Johnston. I in
structed him to give a return of tbe number
and quantity of stone that was in the yard, in
order that the accounts of the Government
could be put in proper shape. Tbe men who
unloaded the stono were paid SI 50 to $1 75 per
day. All other help but those mentioned wero
"I have not put my friends into the building.
I really have only discharged two laboring men
since I have been appointed, notwithstanding
tbe fact that 1 appreciate tbe necessity of hav
ing men under me who are in sympathy with
me and will work in accordance with my views.
I wanteverybody on the building to be equally
interested in the discharge of their duty."

Rev. Father John Denny, who had, been

BOTH SIDES. OP TEE BAKERS' FIGIIT
The Executive Board of the Central
Trades Council of Western Pennsylvania
met last evening in the office of the Com
moner and Glass Worker for the purpose of
making the preliminary "arrangements
toward investigating the charges preferred
against President James Campbell and the
other officers of L. A. 300, Knights of Labor,
Window glass workers, for importing foreign
glass blowers to work at Jeannette. A com
mittee from the local assembly of green
bottle blowers was present, and in pushing
the charges denounced Mr. Campbell in severe
terms. The testimony of John M. Kelly was
taken, who said:
"The readers of my paper will remember the
big advertisement the Chambers-McKee Glass
Company bad in these columns fqr workmen
some months ago. Some of our English read
ers concluded it would be a good opportunity
tp secure a job. A number of workers at Sun
derland, England, wrote for situations, and it
is to the credit of tbe firm hiring them that
their services wero not accepted until all the
workmen in America, who could be secured,
were hired. Tben these Englishmen were en
gaged and told to report at Jeannette. Their
fares to this country wero paid, too, but not by
tbe firm nor L. A. 300, nor were they brought
over under contract. Havintr secured the sit
uation, L. A. 3304, K. of L., of Sunderland, En
gland, which local is attached to the Universal
Federation of Window Glass Workers, loaned
them the money to come on."
JUST WHAT WAS POINTED.
The representatives of the groen bottle
blowers told what they knew about the matter.
This in substance, was an account of the In
formation contained in the newspapers about
tbe affair. Tbe item which appeared in The
Dispatch last Monday about the 26
window blowers arriving a't Lake Erie depot
and proceeding quietly to Jeannette, was re
hearsed. After hearing tho testimony the com
mittee adjourned to meet at the call of the
chair. They will mike a report to tho Council
on Saturday evening, to the effect that they
will make a thorough investigation. If Mr.
Campbell and his associates are found guilty of
violating the law they will be prosecuted.

NOT A GENERAL STRIKE.
Some of the Workers In tbe BuIldlngTradcs
CouioOut Most of the Carpenters, How
ever, Remain nt Work.
The predicted strike in the building trades
did not materialize to any great extent yes
terday. The Brotherhood of Carpenters and
Joiners made a demand for 1 75 per day as
the minimum, an advance of 23 cents, no work
with non-union men and no material from non
union men. This demand was fixedfor May I.
Yesterday Special Agent Swartz, of" the broth
erhood, said tharthe demand had been granted
at almost all of tho shops and a general strike
had been prevented. Over fwo-tiiirds of the
men have been receiving ti 75 per day, and tbe
wages question was hardly an issue- As for
outside carpenters coming in andtakintr'the
men's places, be thought this was ridiculous.
By actual count twepty-four-twenty-fiftbs of
all the carpenters are now In the union, and
there are no non-union men to bring in.
Mr. Swartz said he bad been all over the two
cities, and did not find a strike on any big job.
He bad talked to some of tbo largest contract
ors, and they expressed themselves as sat
isfied. The hod carriers demanded an advance of 25
cents per day, making their wages J2 50, and 24
firms promptly agreed to pay the advance.
The others are expected to fall into line before
the end of the week, but their employes ar3
now on a strike.
A numlier of the stonemasons'on the South
side struck yesterday for an advance of 4 cents
per hour in wages. They have been" getting 36
cents and want 40 cents. The strike, however,
is not general.
SATISFIED WITH THE SITUATION.
The Striken nt Dnqncsne Believe Thcv
Will Win tboTigbt Before Many Dnys.
There were no further developments in the
strike at the Allegheny Bessemer Steel
Works at Duqucsnc yesterday. .No new
men arrived duriug the day. The strikers
are still very much annoyed at the railroad tie
story in tbe.morning papers, and some went so
far as to say that no ties bad been placed on
tbe track. The stdry was reported to tbe Penn
sylvania Railroad Company, and thny now
have a detective at work, and tbe latest is that
tbey think tbe; have a clew.
The following notice was posted by the
All locked out men o'f the Allegheny Bessemer
Stepl Company will meet at 5:13 P. M May t, 1883,
in the sttlkers' hall.
There will be two brass bands and several
Homestead men will be present at the meeting.
It is expected the strike will receive a fresh
start and make things interesting for the mill
men. Two of the strikers went to work yester
day morning. They were formerly employed
as engineers, and they say they went back so
they would not Joso their jobs. Tho strikers
seem well enough satisfied with tho situation
as long-as they don't take in any skilled work
men and keep the Italians. There were threo
or four heats, blown yesterday, and as far as
can be learned they succeeded la making good
District Ulaster "Workman Ross TelU Why
Bakers Differ With 31arvln& Co. Mr. -f
Marvin Contradict a Good Deal of It.
Since the publication of the strike at 6. S.
Marvin & Co.'s cracker works and the in
terview wittyMr. Marvin's superintendent,
giving his side of tbe case, District Master
Workman Ross, of D.A.NO. 3, Knights of
Labor, desires to be heard from the union side.
Tbe latter writes a letter to The Dispatch,
and. in order to treat both sides fairly, the com
munication was shown Mr. Marvin, who con
tradicts most of the statements. Until some
thing of a news character, develops no further
communications or other stimulus to a contro
versy will be printed in tjieso columns. Mr,
The men employed by 8. S. Marvin ft Co. are
not on strike, but simply refuse to work with
nou-unlon men. 8. S. Marvin signed the scale to
employ union men only., lime and again men
were laid off under the pretext that work was
scarce, and Immediately non-union men were put
on in their places. A committee was appointed to
try and have tbe place made strictly union. Mr.
.Marvin said he could not compel men to Join the
organization. He would advise them to do so,
bnt in the next breath told the committee that If
tbey would go to Cleveland and organize his shop
there be would compel, or force, all his men here
in the union. He had trouble there with the Na
tional Bakers' Union, and desiicd to use the K. of
L. to whip the union In Cleveland. The Knights
were not purchasable on that score and refused to
antagonize other nnions.
A committee from District Assembly No. 3
visited Mr. Marvin ou Friday last, and stated that
bis delinquent men wonld be given until Satur
day night at 9 o'clock to sqnare themselves with
the local assembly, at S3 each, although some of
them were In arrears to the amount of (12 SO. Mr.
Marvin wrote on paper the ultimatum, and took
the I). M. W. and members oC the committee into
his factory, called tne men together, read the
document and made a speech to them advising
them to be honest men, and pay their Indebted
ness. .Notwithstanding this, a committee called
at 1. A. 3 headquarters Saturday night to know
what terms of settlement could be made. They
were told that time would be extended until Mon
day night at 7:30. If they failed to comply with
the request of L. A. 7217 the union men would re
fuse to work with the non-unionists any longer.
The nnlon forced shorterhonrs and better wages,
and the non-union men are receiving the benefits.
The bakers appeal to the public in general to let
Mr. Marvin's goods severely alone until tbe place
is made a nnlon establishment. Marvin's factory
to-day Is non-nnlon, and organized labor will be
keDt Dosted from time to time until a settlement
There will be no need for police interference as

I. S. EOSS. D. M. W.
In regard to this letter from the District
Master Workman, Mr. Marvin said:
I did sign tbe scale in this room with the ex
pressed understanding that It was to be optional
with my men as to whether they Joined the nnlon
or not. This was stated In as plain language as I
could make It, and the committee agreed. It Is
nothing to me whether the men are members of
the union or not, and I certainly wonld bo treat
ing them untustlrlf I made It mv business to
meddle with them In this respect.
In regard to the statement that I have laid off
the nnlon men when the wort was short and gave
the preference to the non-nnlonlsts, I can say that
it Is a fabrication out of tbe whole cloth. 1 posi
tively emphatically deny this, and challenge con
tradiction to the denial. I have never dis
criminated against anybody, individually or col
lectively. My books will show that there has been
less flour baked since January 1 to M ay 1 this year
men were laid off by gangs as the work fell off.

In whose works there has been a strike going on
for nine months. All I know of it is, what is con

me "If yon will make this annion shop we will
make you the greatest man In the country and will
do everything to boom nnlon goods." 1 never
said I would force or compel a map to Join the or

Intended for the members of the committee, jnst

The Knights of Labor have picked a grievance
with my men with which I have nothing whatever
to do. I think fair-minded people will not wish
to see these people who are now working in the
shop discharged. Just because they .did not want
to go Into a laborunlon.
An employe named Frleke said he had been
working for tbe firm eight years and never saw
the necessity of going Into the union. He says
the employes held a meeting and almost unani
mously voted not to go into the Knights of Labor.
At the first meeting, out of the 66 men who at
tended, three voted to loin the Knl?hts of Labor.
Two of these afterward said tbey had voted "Ye3"
under a misapprehension. A vote was taken In
the bake shop and 5 out of 33 men voted to go in.
Nineteen men and boys only are on strike.
.Ernest Ott, foreman in the bako shop, said the
men refused to go into tbe union for the reason
that it would not do tbem any good. They never
have any trouble about wages or hours, and all
overtime Is paid for. He has been with the firm
since 1870. Some of tbe employes who refused to
go into tbe Knights of Labor, have been with the
firm for from 20 to 25 years.
THE MINEES STRIKE.
Over 4,000 Railroad Colliers Will be Ont
To-Dny, Sir. Conway Says.
The strike of the railroad coal miners an
nounced to take place yesterday has been
commenced. It is not general, as some of
the men must clear up their rooms before
quitting work. President Conway, of Sub
division No. 4 of the National Progressive
Union, said yesterday that he expected 4,000
men would be idle to-day.
There are 87 mines in Western Pennsylvania,
and Mr. Conway received telegrams from tbe
majority of tbem yesterday to the effect that
tbey would be idle to-day.
They seem determined to secure tbe 74 cent
rate for the entiio year, as several of the oper
ators' have taken contracts based on this price
for mining. President Conway made a tour of
tne railroad mines in this vicinity yesterday,
and last night went to Findlayville. IIo is con
fident that the price will be paid before tbo
end of the week.
Vice President Davis, who was present at tbe
meeting held at Ruppel's Hall on Tuesday,
denies tho statement that he has taken an op
posite view to President McBride on tbe wage
question. He says he believes Mr. McBrlde'3
position on tbe question is correct.
About 15 stonemasons, who were occupied at
the new parochial residence of St. Michael's
Chnrch on tbe Southside. went on a strike yes
terday for an advance in wages. The men were
cettlng 38 cents per hour, and they demanded
40 cents.. Tb Building Committee of tbe church
met last night to consider, but did not know
what they could do in the matter.
There Are No Vacancies.
It was reported yesterday that a man repre
senting a California iron firm was here trying
to engage puddlers to go to that State to work,
promising them union wages. The man could
not be found, and members of tbe Amalgamated
Association say there are no vacancies in the
iron mills of California.
The Slnln Shaft Broke.
The main shaft of the Corliss engine in the
puddling department ,uf Jones fc Laughlins'
American Iron Works, on the Southside, broke
yesterday, and, in consequence, several hun
dred men will be out ot work for about three
weeks; This is the same shaft which broke

The Southside Hospital is about to be

held a meeting yesterday' morning for the
purpose of discussing plans of the proposed
institution.. Among tbe gentlemen present
were Dr. J. M. Duff and Drs. Arnholt. Miller,
Thomas Wood, Stengel and Pollock.
Several of the gentlemen reported that the
scheme was sow so far advanced that tbey
had a number of people interested in the mat
ter who have promised to aid the project in a
financial way. Among these there are espe
cially enthusiastic ladies. A committee of tbe
physicians then resolved to go ahead and rent
a building on their own respons.ibiltywith the
hope that the general public, especially tho
manufacturers, would come forward and help

connected with it, which used to bo called the
One of the physicians said" in regard to the
project of the committee last night: "This time
the hospital is a sure thing. We have nowsuch
prosperous outlook for Its establishment and
within a few weeks; too that it cannot fail.
From several parties wo have the promise of
funds, and others will help us to furnish the
place and, si on. We decided, 'therefore, to
take the bull by the horns, and rent a building
ourselves. We did this to show the people our
earnestness of spirit, and I think tbeywill show
their appreciation by comingf orward with sub
scriptions. "The Atlantic Garden is the best building we
could get, because, while the rooms in thehonse
are well suited for serious cases, other patients
will have the advantage of walking in the gar
den adjoining the building."
-When do you think yon will open the insti

about the first of June."
