THE PITTSBtTRG-' DISFATGW,' T&UR&D'JS:, MA.3r,;t2, "188?.,
An Important Allegation Sworn to by
Jnlia Sheehan's Uncle,
Preliminary Injunctions, One for the City,
One for a Farmer.
A TAEALTZED OtPHAX'S LEGAL PLEA
The very nice, quite important and
equally puzzling question now arises, Is
Julia Mary Sheehan dead, or is the Julia
Mary Mitchell, alias Sheehan, who is now in
court,claiming to be the only childof Thomas
Sheehan's second marriage the real heiress
to that 500,000 or SSO.000 estate which
Thomas left? The evidence for and against
her claim, before Judge Hawking in the
Orphans' Court, assumed this very interest
ing phase yesterday: The identification by
birthmark, the much-testified resemblance
to Thomas Sheehan, the father, and the
young lady's own statement that she is the
heiress, the long-lost Julia, are all con
fronted by the testimony of the witness
who was next to the last one swora yester
dayJerry Gibbons, of Jacksonville, 111., a
brother-in-law of Thomas Sheehan. He
testified that the Sheehan child, or real
heiress to the estate, had died in Keokuk,
Iowa, and1 had been burled in the Catholic
cemetery there. He never saw Thomas
Sheehan out there.
Miss Mitchell, or Sheehan, was put on
the stand again and asked if she ever heard
the name Sheehan mentioned by the people
with whom she had lived. She replied she
had, but at that time she did not know in
what connection. She said she had been
called Julia Mary from her first recollec
tion. Mrs. Sheehan was recalled and ques
tioned as to whether she had told a neigh
bor, Mrs. "Walsh, that the girl had a birth
mark. She replied: "I do not remember
telling her that. Iy husband went to St
Louts to get the child from an orphan asy
lum, but I never heard hxpx say that she was
dead, or that he saw where sbe was buried.
When Mr. Sheehan was on his deathbed, I told
him I would find our child if she was alive.
Charles G. Orr had heard Mrs. Sheehan say
she knew her daughter by a birthmark on her
Mrs. Mary Licht knew Mrs. Mitchell and
Mrs. Churchneld. and had known Julia Mary
ever since she camo to Rew Castle with Mrs.
Mitchell in 1S63. In a conversation once be
tween 3Irs.Lmt and Mrs. Mitchell she had
hoard the name of Mrs. Sheehan mentioned,
and Mrs. Lint said: "How foolish it was of
you to go to the Pittsburg market and talk
with that girl, when you knew she was her
John Slay, J. D. Robinson, Thomas Reach
and Thomas Saint all testified that they knew
Thomas Sheehan, and that there was a striking
resemblance between him and Jnlia Mary.
Mrs. Mary Clark had a conversation with
Mrs. Sheohan long before Julia Mary came,
and she told the witness she would know her
by a birthmark.
It. C Huff, an attorney at Xew Castle, said
Jnlia Mary came to his office eight years ago
and told the same story of her life as she de
tailed in court on Monday.
After dinner quite a nnmber of witnesses
were placed on the stand who testified as to the
remarkable resemblance between the girl and
the dead man.
Then came Jerry Gibbons' startling story, as
Catherine Slattery, of Webster avenue, was
the last witness called; but her testimony was

Alf Equity Suit lo Annul nn Alleged Fraudu
lent Gnu Lcnsc
Preliminary injunction issued yesterday
against "V. F. Hagan, at the instance of Eliza
beth and Samuel Hibler, to prevent his sink
ing gas or oil wells on their valuable lands in
Btowe township, under an alleged deceptive
and fraudulent agreement he obtained from
them. This is the becoming of suit in equity
to annnl the agreement, and Saturday is set
for a bearing. Plaintiffs say they had leased
ml and gas rights to Carver fc Smith, and that
Hacan. the latter's recognized agent, told
plaintiffs be had broken up that firm and
would give $1,000 more than they had for a
similar lease: that he induced plaintiffs to
sign, as they supposed, a preliminary agree
ment, which was really a fraudulently obtained
lease, and that they desire It to be annulled as

LIBERTY LIVE STOCK.
Heavy Ron of Cattle Markets Show a
Downward Drill Sheep and Lnrobs
In bcpplr Above Demand Boss
Alono Hold Their Own.
The run of cattle -was not quite up to last
week, but too large for demands of trade. The
total has been about 92 loads against 6 last
week. There were in the supplies about 10
loads of stockers. The bulk of receipts were
lrom Chicago. Markets were iu favor of buy
ers on all grades, and prices were 10 to 15c off
from rates of last week. A number of loads
were unsold to-day. The quality of cattle re
ceived this week was fair, but primes were few.
JTone could be traced much above 1.400 In weight.
Calves continue to be In bountiful supply. The
best prices obtained for 1.400-pound steers was
$4 25 to $4 35. The range for calves as 8K to
i, the latter price being obtained tor a tew
Sheep nnd Lambs.
Vhile supplies were not as large as a week
ago, markets ruled sluggish and prices dropped
a full quarter. A leading dealer reports sales
of Tour double decks of Ohio wethers at S3 50
64 JO. The range for lambs was 67c,and very
tew reached the outside figure,
The run has been light all the week, and mar
kets ruled firm, with an upward drift. Six
loads Mere received this morning ana were
quickH sold at 54 905 00. The outside price
at Chicago to-day is J4 75, which is a slight re
duction from yesterday's rates. At Liberty
hogs are the strongest elements of the live
stock markets. As to all else, markets are in
the bujer's favor.
McCnll & Co.' Review.

Chicago, May L The meeting of the
stockholders of the North Chicago Rolling
Mill Company and the Union Steel Com
pany for the purpose of consolidating their
interests with those of the Joliet Steel Com
pany, as has already been stated in these
dispatches, were held here to-day. Both
meetings were brief and at their close it was
stated that nothing definite had been accom
plished and that they had adjourned till to
morrow. The plan by which this important move
in the manufacturing world is to be accom
plished is, in brief, the increase of the capi
tal stock of the North Chicago Company to
$25,000,000 and the purchase, with the
money so accruing, of the plants ol the
other two companies. The new concern
will be known as the Illinois Steel Com

GOSSIP Off STOCKS.
Street Talk of a 'Decidedly Bearish
Complexion, bat Some
SURPRISES HAT BE FLASHED UP.
Why Philadelphia Gas and Electric Are Still
Deeply in the Dumps,
THE TEACTI0NS ALSO UNDER A CLOUD
To-day business will be resumed at the
Pittsburg Exchange after the'longest vaca
tion in its history. There was very little
stock gossip on the street yesterday, but
what there was had a decidedly bearish
flavor. The strongest stock spoken of was
"Wheeling Gas. Its strength was attributed,
to the prospective declaration or a dividend at
tbe meeting of the company next Tuesday.
Philadelphia Gas was in tbe dumps, being
fractionally weaker and neglected. While
nobody seems to be able to give a diagnosis of
the disease with which this stock is troubled,
all admit that there is something wrong. Tbe
persistency with which it hangs around 40 is
attributed by some to the manipulations of a
bull clique who want it at a lower figure.
Others maintain that it has reached its top
price, and is tottering on the apex before tak
ing a plunce downward. So far as
known there has been no recent
change in tbe condition of the com
pany to affect prices either way, unless it be
the proposed Bellevemon extension, and to
maintain that this indicates a falling off in tbe
present sources of suppljr would be unwar
ranted from all that is known. When the
brokers come together to-day tbey may be able
to disclose the true inwardness of the depres
sion. Electric is so deeply involved In litigation
and there are so many stories of combines and
absorptions afloat that there is a manifest dis
position to let it alone until theso disturbing
elements are removed. That it has reached
the culminating point no one believes, tor It
represents an interest that has limitless possi
bilities. Every day, almost, opens up "new
uses for electricity, and every such invention
or discovery should increase the value ot the
stock. Once divested of its legal complica
tions and the plant put on a solid basis, the
stock must advance to a much nlgher point
than it has yet reached.
In regard to the Tractions, he talk was not
veryencouracing. The increaso of the indebt
edness of the Central was looked upon in some
quarters as the beginning of the watering pro
cess which has ruined miny otherwise valuable
stocks. Other causes of depreasion were" ir
regularity In the running of the Cars and fre
quent accidents, making the companies liablo
to heavy damages. But, with good manage
ment and a just regard tor the rights and com
fort of passengers, these objections may soon
bo overcome. That the business of the roads
will grow as tbe districts through which they
pass become more thickly settled is patent to
everyone. As the earnings increase the de
mand for the stock will improve and hicber
prices for it will necessarily follow. Like Elec
tric, the Traction foads have a bright future
Very little was said about Switch and Signal
and the mining shares. The former seems to
be manipulated by a clique who are not press
ing its sale. By holding it back they expect to
realize better prices for it. As the business is
growing, they will probably not bo disappoint
ed. As to the mining stocks, so long as tbe
public is'kept iu ignorance of tbe condition of
the works a material improvement is out of
the question. It is not often that U man wants
to buy a pig in a poke.
The Financial Situation Indicate a Hcnlthr
Condition of Trade.
Business was resumed at the banks yester
day, but aside from the aotivlty growing out of
the routine transactions there were no special
features. Mouey was as plentiful as ever.
Although some of the banks were reported
pretty well loaned up, others complained that
they could not find sufficient employment for
their surplus. This, with large amounts ot out
side capital seeking investment, insures an am
ple supply of working funds at low rates
throughout tbe summer. Checks accumulated
over the holiday sufficiently to swell the ex
changes to $2,491,047 43. The balances were
Referring to the business outlook, a veteran
financier said yesterday: "Those who looked
for a bpom in anything this season willbe disap
pointed. The season is too far advanced for
that. Improvement will bo slow, as it has
been. But tbere is more doing than surface
indications would lead the casual observer to
suspect. Nearly all tbe mills and factories are
in operation, most of them working, on orders
and very few accumulating stock. Sales of
drycoods, groceries, boots and shoes and other
leading articles of merchandise are larger than
last year, xnere is very nine unempioyea

trade, with no danger of a reverse. All who
try are making a good living, and many are
laying up money. We have no good reason to

tled, nnd Weak.
Chicago Only a light business in
wheat was doing to-day, and while the fluctua
tions most of the day were confined within nar
row limits a ratherv easier feeling was devel
pped. The opening was rather strong and
prices 6c higher tor July than Monday's
closing, but the speculative offerings were quite
free, considering the demand, and prices ae
cllned KlC then ruled steady and closed o
lower than Monday.
There was nothing In outside views to create
weakness and tbe market was governed princi
pally by local influences. Advices fromthe
Northwest continue to report a lack of rain,
ground dry and the growing wheat in need of
moisture. Cold and unseasonable weather is
also reported in the Northwest.
A fair business was reported in corn and the
feeling developed was relatively firm early and
weaker later. Deliveries on May contracts
were reported as only moderate. The market
opened at Monday's closing prices, was quite
firm and. advanced ic, but later reacted c,
ruled steady and closed Kc lowerthanMon
day. Oats were fairly active, bnt unsettled, being
firm and iii o higher early, hut later became
weaker and declined Jic which was fairly
maintained until the close.
A fairly active trade was reported in mess
pork, and the feeling was somewhat unsettled

Country Produce Jobbing Prices.
Tropical fruits are moving out freely at
higher prices than have prevailed for months
past Eggs are firmer, with supply not above
demand. Creamery butter shows a downward
drift as grazing improves. The improved de
mand for apples the past week has brought out
farmers' stores to su6h an oztent that markets
aro fully supplied.and prices are off a shade
from prices of last week. It seems that when
apples rise to living prices, there Is no lack of
supplies. Old potatoes continue slow. The
new crop will ere long fill all demands.

Corn is the strong factor of cereal markets.
Oats are firm, with an upward tendency. Hay
is weak on account of too liberal supplies. Ad
vices from the Northwest indicate stagnant
flour markets at al) points. The light export
demand for wheat and flour 'disappoints ail
calculations of bulls this season. .

St. Louis Wool Receipts of wool during
the past week were 13,339 pounds as against
10,183 pounds the previous week. In receipts
thus far there has been an evident lack ot care
in separating good from poor wool. Prices un
changed. HE IS HOT AN ANARCHIST.
The Man Who Waved the lied Fins nt Chi
cago Makes nn Explanation.
Chicago, May 1. 31. W. Doty, the man
who was so roughly handled by a mob yes
terday because he swung out a piece of An
archistic red material from his window,
gives a different version of the affair from
that published. He says he ir not an An
archist; that, on tbe contrary, he is an
American citizen and n patriotic one. See
ing that his neighbors were decorating, he
got out a red umbrella which did dnty last
toll in Harrison and Morton parades, and,
without a thought it was the chosen color of
the Anarchistic clans, swung it from his
window as a piece of patriotic decoration.
When the crowd gathered and began to
abuse him and call him an Anarchist he
"got his dander up" and refused to take the
obnoxions color in. That was how it came
about that, when he coolly marched down
into the angry crowd for tho purpose of ex
plaining matters, they would not listen to
him, and came near stringing him up.
Our little girl when but three weeks old
broke ont with eczema. We tried the prescrip
tion from several good doctors, but without
any special benefit. We tried 8. 8. S., and by
the time one bottle was gone, her bead began
to heal, and by the time she had taken six bot
tles she was completely cured. Now she has a
full and heavy head of hair a robust, healthy
child. I feel It but my duty to matte this state

NOT TOO LATE.
Miss Driver, aged sixteen years, daughter of
Mr. Wm. H. Drayer, a well known shoe dealer,
had been afflicted with Club Foot fourteen
years, causing great distress and annovance to
herself and family. Tbere was such a'contrac
tion of the muscles that sheconldnotstralghten
her limb, and although she wore the usual
high beel shoe, it was impossible for her to
bring herheel to the ground when walking.
After suffering on in this condition for four
teen years, sbe consulted one of the surgeons
of the Polypatlne iiurgical Institute, and was
convinced that it was sot too late to be
cured. An operation was performed, and the
deformity entirely removed, and although it Is
now three years since the operation, her cure
has remained permanent. Sho walks perfectly,
and has no further use for a high heel shoe.
Her father says: "For the benoflt of others I
hereby certify that the foregoing statement
concerning my daughter's condition is true and
correct. W5I.H. DRAYER." They treat suc

To enre Mrs. Thomas Eatton, and she suffered
on for 13 years. The aches and pains which
she experienced in almost every part of her
body was simply terrible. Those sharp, cutting
pains across the small of her back and lower
part of her body was almost unbearable. In
fact she suffered with all those diseases and
conditions peculiar to women. For three
months her mind was unbalanced, and for
months she Mas confined to her bed. She be
came very weak and emaciated, so that she
only weighed 98 pounds. No one expected her
to live, much less get entirely cured. After
receiving three months' treatment with the
physicians of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Insti
tute, 323 Penn avenue, who make a specialty ot
her disease, sbe says:
"I never want any one to suffer as I have for
the past 13 years. The condition of my case
was much worse than has been described, and
lata only too glad to testify to my complete
cure by tbe doctors of the Catarrh and Dys
"MRS. THOMAS HATTON, Putnam, Pa."
The above lady physician can be consulted
by ladles suffering from diseases peculiar to
their sex. The medicines used are positively
curative, and arc so prepared as to allow the

Speechless One Month. Mrs, Hum
bert's Statement Cured "by
By Dr. Smith, at 502 Perm Ave ,
Mrs. George Humbert, who resides at Pe'
trolia City in Butler county. Pa., has been a
great sufferer fox the past it years. Every part
of her body seemed, to be diseased. Sho suf
fered intense pain in tbe head and through he:
lungs and shoulders: every joint in her body
was sore and painful; she was depressed, weak?
and despondent: she was very nervous and
would start at tho least noise and excitement
completely prostrated her; she became hoarse)
and lost her voice entirely and for one month
before sbe applied to Dr. Smith she was un
able to speak above a whisper. Mrs. Humbert
tried several doctors and toot a large varietyol
proprietary' medicines, bnt to no purpose.
When she applied to Dr. Smith she had given
up all hope, but tho doctor encouraged her and
said he eonld help her. Dr. Bmittt gave her '
one magnetic treatment of not more than tea
minutes end restored, her voice so she could
talk as well as ever, and at tbe same time cured
all the rest of her ailments, and she returned
to her home a well woman. This cure was per-
formed without a dose of medicine; all the-"
doctor did was to apply his bands to the afflicted
Patrick Ryan has been afflicted with rheu
matism for tbe past eight months, and was xasf
able to do any work whatever. His right arm
was so swollen and painful that be could noS
raie his hand to his head. He applied to Dr.
Smith and received one magnetic treatment
and was cured perfectly. Mrs. Emma Seel?
had been a great sufferer .from piles for 13,
years. She applied to Dr. Smith and was per'
manently cured In one week. Old Mr. Judd
was thrown from his wagon and received an inJ '
jury to bis back that made him a cripple for 11
month?. He was not able to walk. .without)
crutches. He applied to Dr. Smith and was
permanently cured by one magnetic treatment.
Scores and hundreds of cures equally ashu .
teresting could be given if we had tbe time and
space. We want to say right here that the sick;
and afflicted will never have another oppor
tnnity like the present to be made well.
Dr. Smith cures all forms of female coraf '
plaints. He also treatSiand cures cancers in
less time and with less pain than by any
otber known method.
Dr. Smith is permanently located at 502 Penn
avenue, where everybody can go from 9 a. ir.
till 7 p. II. The doctor consults free and cures
after all other means fall. He treats every
form of disease Known to humanity. Goto
