Traducers in Public Halls.
Pours Forth in Remarks of Ridicule
and in long Resolutions.
JUDGE'S THREATENING LETTERS
Come From a Few, While Many in Mass
Meetings Praise Him.
EET.DE. ALLISON THE CHIEF SPEAKER
Nearly 300 people gathered in the Opera
House at Sewickley last night to express
their opinion of Hon. George Shiras' at
tempt to have Judge "White investigated.
They included business and pro
fessional men of Pittsburg who live in the
beautiful village; the townsfolk who arc
neighbors of Judge White; countrymen
from farms miles around Sewickley, and
more than a dozen of ladies. The character
of the audience was itself a compliment to
The meeting ras called to order at 8:15.

POOR, BUT HONEST.
Messrs. W. R. Wallace, Thomas Patterson
and John Dickson were appointeda Committee
on Resolutions. They retired, and while the
assembly awaited a report of their delibera
tion;. Captain Georjre W. Cochrane, formerly
of the Pittsburg Petroleum Exchange, was
called upon for a speech.
The Captain paid an earnest tribnte to the
integrity of His Honor Judge A'hite founded
upon years of business dealing be had had
with him. He pronounced him one of
the purest jurists on the bench,
and said be could not reconcile the intimations
of judicial corruption with the fact that the
Jndge is still a poor man. If he had sola li
censes he couldn't help beinc a millionaire
now. He severely denounced the attempt to
impeach him. as an insult to law-loring people
and a menace to American institutions.
The committee soon- returned to the room
anil submitted the following resolutions as its
Whereas, The reputation of Hon. J. W. F.

mon Pleas of this county, has been most out
rageously attacked by meant of a resolution at

Hesolred, Thatwc. the citizens oftlie Scwickley
Valley and nclghnors of Judge White, In meeting
assembled, without regard to political party or
sentiment as to existing license laworthepcndlng
amendment, do express our Intense Indignation
at the charge, and declare our confidence In Judge
White, both as to his personal and official in
tegrity. Kesolved, That we are or the opinion that the
' attack is made on Jo dee White on account or his
fearless and conscientious discharge or his duties
in the late License Court, and are not otherwise
founded, and would not otherwise be presented.
, - Kjsolvea, That we desire to record our firm and
sincere convlctiottilhat in his actions in the Li
cence Court, Jndge White was not actuated by
any other motive than an honest desire to faith
fully discharge his duties in accordance with bis
oath of office, the lawof the land and his responsi
bility to his conscience.
l'csoivcd. That the proposition to impeach a
Judge for the exercise of his discretion vested in
him by the law is a direct assault on the freedom
and independence or the Judiciary and as such is
to be deprecated and resisted as destructive of our
CEOEGE III. CATCHES IT.
Dr. Wallace, as a member of the committee,
defended the resolutions. He said the people
of the Scwickley valley are shocked at this at
tack upon their respected townsman. Judge
White. He dwelt upon the good qualities of
the jurist, treated the movement against him
more as the designs of ljqnor men than of
learned attorneys, and said that the spirit of
the American people would always protest
acalnst such assaults. Of the originator of
these impeachment resolutions at Harrisburp;
lie said that George, or whatever his name
was. I, II, or III cither, was not the man in age
or experience that Judge White is, aud that
now the public thoroughly understand what
his motives were in offering such resolutions.
"But the Georges all the way down never
amounted to much," concluded the speiker.
Mr. Patterson, also a member of the commit
tee, made a few remarks. Of George Shiras,
1IL, be said that be was a young man. sore
from some defeat, who had let his auger sweep
him into this movement. Continuing, he said:
"Judge White's dominant characteristic is
his courage. He bas administered the law in
this license question with a nerve that few men
would have dared to exhibit. It required cour
age to gradually cut down the number of
saloons in this county, where two cities bad
been overrun with saloons."
A BESUM PEDICTEto:
Rev. Dr. Jas. Allison, editor of the Presby
Urian Banner, told of his long intimacy with
Judge White, extending down from boyhood,
and then spoke of the Judge's activity in all
Sewickley enterprises. Dr. Allison continued:
"We are glad to see that scarcely anybody
believes these charges against the Judge. Why,
the unfortunate young man at Harrisburg who
made the charges does not believe them him-
. -belt, III venture. This is simply intimidation
intimidation of the bench, which must next
year pass on the liquor licenses again, both in
Pittsburg and Philadelphia. '
"I once knew a boy who went out to shoot
birds near Bakerstown, when I was a child. In
those days the old style of blunderbusses had
to be loaded with a whole handful of powder
and a handful of shot. Well, the boy shot at
tho bird. Tho bird was not hurt, but we found
the boy sprawling on bis back in a fence cor
ner. ow, that is the way with this youthful
shooter down at Harrisburg. He finds himself
lying broad on bis back. The temperance poo
Tie despise him. The saloonkeepers despise
him, too, for he gave them away. They did
not ask him to do this.
'Whatfwill be the result of all this? The
Anglo-Saxon race have always had that pecul
iarity of strongly wishing, to obey the law of
The land. All their revolutions have been con
stitutional in origin ana purpose. That ii the
time of George 1. was constitutional. So was
it when William aud Mary wrested tho govern
ment from James. In our own revolutionary
struggle the Constitution was in view, and also
In our late Civil war. Now this will help to

The resolutions were then adopted by an up
roarious vote. It was unanlmous,and the meet
STRIKING RIGHT OUT.
An Orator nnd His Hearers in a V. P.
Church Condemn tho JudgcV Assall
nnts Stronelj Supporting His Honor.
The same subject discussed in the pre
ceding article also came; up prominently in
a meeting in this city. Homer L. Castle,
Esq., addressed a large and enthusiastic
-audience on the "subject of Prohibition
Amendment last night at the Eighth
United Presbyterian Church on Van Braam
street, and tbe people, who bad evidently come
there to listen to an entertalnlne address upon
a topic so interesting to them, were not disap
pointed. The speaker was introduced as intending to
treat bis subject from a commercial standpoint.
Among other things, he said:
"To speak upon tbe subject before us to an
Intelligent audience like this deserves on my
part an apology, because there IS not a road
that has been traversed so often as this one
abouYprohibitlon. 1 can't tell yon anything
else than what you haTe probably heard many
A time. But yet I do believe wo cannot really
say too much about it. Our enemies are up
and doing; they are constantlyawaae, and ever
lastingly rdfuting the convicting arguments
natch we hurf ajainst them, and it is necessary
J for us to keep on, too, until the curse of intem
perance has ueen wipeuavyay rum uurcuuniry.
We cannot, dare not, stop, half way. No more
than this country could exist as the peer amohc
civilized nations, by being composed of' a part
of freemen and the other part slaves,-no more
can we allow one part tor be drunk, while the
other part is sober.
-Now these people tell us .that liquor is a
wholesome beverage. It brings' color in the
face, and makes a man look ruddy. Yes, bat
tbe only part in the face that getl real red Is
tbe nose, aud that spoils it!
"Then the people say that high license would
reduce the saloons. I tell you if saloon licenses
cost 2,500 each their number would not de
crease; but what has decreased our saloons?
It was Judge White, with his little ax!
''However, there is something: in connection
with this which I have observed, and I must
tell you what it is. We know that only S3
licenses were granted in the city of Pittsburg;
but I tell you all the saloon keepers nearly are
enlarging their places at least threefold, and
hence we bare really 279 saloons In the city
"Still, we are told tbe high license law only
allows respectable saloons to be kept. On that
point I will simply say that. In my opinion, tbe
places of mirrors and'outward elegance and re
spectability are just tbe places which attract
our boys and lead them to, the coal of perdi
tion; aud I say therefore: Let tho respectable
saloon go first, and the low, dlsreputabUMives
will co out of existence anyhow.
"But then, look at the enormous revenue we
get from the liquor trade! That Is another cry
we hear, and it reminds me of the story in the
Bible where the Lord drove seven devils out of
a man and cast them into a herd of swine. The
Lord who had every reason to expect .that tbe
Hebrews would be grateful to him for what he
had done was told:
-"It is all very well to cast devils out of a man,
but just think of the hogs; they have drowned
themselves, where wo might have sold them to
the Romans, and made money out of them.'
That is just what a good many people say, who
do not drink themselves, and have nothing to
do with the liquor business: 'Give it to the
white-aproned army, and let them create rev
enue for our State.'
"Ah, my dear friends, the Lord has given us
the power to get this amendment Into our Con
stitution, aud I hope we will get it there.' It is
all the Constitution requires to be perfect. And
not only that; it will bo out of reach of our six
Denny Pennsylvania Legislature, and no legis
lator will be able to touch it to make political
capital out of it. What consummate asses
legislators can make, of themselves has been
sufficiently demonstrated to you in tho last few
"Just consider the Iniquity of endeavoring to
impeach a man. a Judge, who construes the
law In a sense highly beneficial to the people
and the morality of tho masses. Any constit
uency that will again return such a man and
support him, I have my opinion of, as an Ameri
"Dear friends, tho country is in abont the
samo position as it was during the war. Tbe
Union forces, our boys in blue, were driven
steadily back from Richmond. Back, back,
they had to go, until they came into Pennsyl
vania. But here, on the field of Gettysburg,
they rallied themselves, ana from that day vic
tory upon victory was fought, until the rebels
were defeated, bhall it be the same this time?
We were defeated in New Hampshire, in
Massachusetts, In West Virginia, in Ohio and
in Michigan; now then, let us once more make
a Gettysburg in Pennsylvania, aud defeat tho
curse of llquur on June 18."
The speaker was repeatedly and enthusiasti
cally applauded during his discourse. At the
conclusion the motion was made that every
body in the meeting express his determination
to work and vote for the Constitutional amend
ment on June 18, and everybody sustain Judge
White in his course of action in the last License
Court. Tho resolution was unanimously
A CHAT WITH HIS H0S0R.
Judgo White at Homo Tells Some New
Phases of tho Sensation Threatening
Letter Received by Him.
Judge "White spent the entire day and
evening at his modest little home in Sewick
ley yesterday. He did not attend
the public meeting of the townspeople
at night, hut found ample work
in opening, reading and assorting
nearly 100 letters that came to him in tbe mails
from some of tbe most prominent citizens of
Pittsburg, Allegheny and other places. These
letters extended congratulations to the Judge
for the stand be had taken both in the refusal of
licenses, and the manner in which he met
the attack upon him In the Legislature. The
Judge declined to let the names of his corre
spondents be known, as they were private let
ters, although the reporters were permitted to
read many of them confidentially.
It turns out that Judge White lias also re
ceived a few letters of a different nature. Tbey
were anonymous in all cases, and in a few. in
stances were signed "White Caps." They con
tained threats, both mild and alarming, but
His Honor, who even yet is perfectly fearless
in all his movements, laughs at the epistles as
the efforts of ignorant jokers to scare him.
When asked by the reporter to permit the
Shiras letters in the Schad license case to be
published in The Dispatch, the Judge re
plied: ".N'o: I cannot do that now. What is the
use? The fuss is all over at Harrisburg, and
while Sir. Shiras was offended at me, I have no
desire to procrastinate the subject aud keep
up excitement by making these letters public.
Hr. Shiras may have them though, if he wants
the newspapers to publish their contents."
"Will you accept Mr. Shiras' invitation to
meet him in his office and hear 50 specific
charges against your administration?"
".No, sir; I am not so foolish as to go
to Mr. Shiras' private office inr
any such purpose. I know nothing about '50
specific charges.' "
Then, in reply to a series of questions cover
ing sensational street gossip about the manner
in which licenses were granted. Judge White
"I knew nothing abont politics in the First
ward. My information about tbe reputa
tion ol saloon keepers there came
from sources totally foreign to poli
tics. I never was in consultation with
the heads of city departments but once. That
was when I sent for Chief Brown to tell him of
evidence which I had received as to
why tho Hamilton Hotel should receive
a license. He was accompanied by
Chief Elliot, hut the latter bad nothing what
ever to say. No one living knew who were to
get licenses bnt myself. I did not even let my
stenographer know. The only change I made
on tho list after it was made up finally was in
tho case of P. J. Foley, whom I struck on! the
"If I feel as I do now a year hence I shall
resign rather than accept the hard work and
responsibility of tho License Court again. I
never said Judge Bwlng shirked.. That was a
mistake. I only said that he felt it incumbent
upon him not to give up the court ho was then
Judge White remembers with ease everv
license mentioned to nim, whether refused or
granted, no matter in what part of tbe county
or cities. And, as tbe reporter found by test
ing him, be states without referring to notes
his reasons for refusing each license.
He will hold court to-day. Joslah Cohen said
yesterday that he would be on hand to-day to
see what formal disposition Judges White and
Magce make of tbe petitions for rebcarings. If
they are marked "Refused," then records will
be asked for to appeal to the Supreme Court,
as John Robb has done for the bottlers.
THE! SAY SO, TOO.
The Sons of Temperance Unite With Other
At the meeting of the Laurel Division,
Sons of Temperance, held at their hall on
Fifth avenue, near Washington street, last
night, tbe following resolution was adopted:
Resolved, That we, the members of the
Laurel Division, Sons ot Temperance, folly
indorse tbe action of his Honor, J. W. F.
White, during the session of tbeLicense Court,
andjook upon the resolution for impeachment
as an insult to all Christian, moral and well
meaning people, and as such should be con
demned by ail respectable members of society.

he asked to accept the resignations oi the
two leading officials; in fact, .they will have
no choice in the matter, as President Weihe
and Secretary Martin are determined to
quit In addition to these withdrawals,
Trustee James H. Kutt will also announce
his determination to leave the organization,
or rather- to be placed on the- retired
list. They all have something
better in view, and if these recognized rep
resentatives of the brains of the organiza
tion are lost, the association, It is said, will
have a tough row to hoe when they meet a
lot of disorganized manufacturers. It will
likely be "every man tor himself this year, as
the Manufacturers' Association that has here
tofore arranged the annual -wago scales with a
workers' committee ls'noW extinct and bas been
for a year.
President "Welbe, as stated, has announced
that he1 positively will not run for re-election,
and Secretary Martin, it is stated, will not again
accept the position he has so acceptably
filled for several years. Mr. Martin was a
candidate for tbe position of National Commis
sioner of Labor, in place of Carroll D. Wright.
He has a stack of Indorsements from labor or
ganizations and politicians that, if spread out
over the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad track,
would probably reach from here to Washing
ton. Yesterday Mr. Martin announced that he had
withdrawn from the contest, but de
clined to give any reasons. When a Dis
patch reporter told him that a well
authenticated rumor was being circu
lated that he was booked for Newcastle-on-Tyne,
as a representative of this Govern--stent,
he declined to talk on the subject.- He
I refused to continue tbe conversation or say
anything xurtner, except tnat ne "naa not
heard of It."
It is an assured fact, however, that Mr. Mar
tin ison the list," or will soon be on, for
something better than the position he now
WHO WILL LEAD THE TIGHT?
President Weihe also declined to be inter
viewed on the subject. A member of tho or
ganization saw that the association had not
the backbone of a year or two ago, although
the membership was greater than ever before.
Ho ridiculed tbe idea that tbe association
would go under, but said tbey would have a big
fight on their hands. Manufacturers have
nothing to say, and all reply to questions as
Mr. Harry W. Oliver did yesterday: "I do not
know what will be done, as I have Been giving
the matter very little attention."
It is understood, however, that the manufact
urers will not consent to the payment of the
present wages for another year, while the
workers will insist on their scale.
ME. CABKEGIE'S VISIT.
It is said that,Mr. Andrew Carnegie's visit to
the city at this time is very significant. He
proposes, it is stated, to revise the system of
work and wages at his largo plants, which are
now controlled by the Amalgamated Associa
tion. A reduction in tbe wages of tbe men em
ployed at Homestead, it is said, is contempla
ted. Nothing definite can be said abont the pros
pects for next year; but. with tho manufac
turers unorganized and tho ' Amalgamated As
sociation' solid, it can sarely be said that the
workers will win a fight, if their domands are
reasonable, notwithstanding the loss of the two
highest ofiiclais. Their places will be filled, of
course, by able men, as there are undoubtedly
many in tbe organization capable of filling the
two important positions.
Several manufacturers and prominent mem
bers of the Amalgamated Association were
spoken to in reference to the above, but none
of them cared to make any statements except
mat inero woaiu not luceiy oe a coniorcnco
this Tear as heretofore. The statement that
Mr. Martin will not be a candidate for tho Sec
retaryship was acknowledged by a labor leader
who has returned from Washington. He said:
A PEIVATE CONFERENCE.
"When I was Jn Washington I attended a
private conference at which Mr. Martin's
namo was mentioned, and his recommenda
tions for the Commissionership of Labor were
discussed. It was admitted by all that no man
ever came so well recommended for a Govern
ment position as he has. It was set down as a
positive fact that he must have Something,
and will get it whether it is a Consulate to
Newcastle or not. The retirement of the two
heads of tho organization aud tbe dissension
among tho roughers and catchers may affect
the association to a certain extent, but I be
lieve that equally good men can be found in
the order to take their places, and seenre a fair
wage scale tor the men?'
A prominent worker who is able to fill either
place in the organization said ho would not
have any of the offices, as there is not enough
salary attached to them. This will likely be
tbe difficulty, as most of the men capable of
filling the positions arc now earning more than
$1,500 per year, tbe salary paid the president.
NO COMMITTEE LIKELY.
Among the manufacturers seen on! the sub
ject was Mr. James H. Lindsay, of the firm of
Lindsay & McCutchcon, who has represented
the manufacturers on the conference 'commit
tee. He said he did not believe the manufact
urers would appoint a committee to meet the
workers, but that if a scalo was drawn up by
tbe Amalgamated Association it would have to
be presented to the individual firms for con
sideration; As stated above, tbe Manufacturers' Asso
ciation that al was s considered tbe wage ques
tion was dissolved almost a year ago.
A member of the firm of Carnegie. Phipps fc
Co. was seen late last night and stated that the
report that they contemplated some chanjfes In
tbe scale was unfounded.
A MATERIAL REDUCTION.
The Green Glass Blowers Ashed to Accept
Less Wages for the Next Blast A Very
. Thomas Wightman, of this city, who is
President of the Green Glass and Bottle
JBJowers' Conference, of D. A. 143, K. of L.,
,has written a very significant letter to Master
Workman Louis Arrincton. In it bo says
that the workmen must preparoto accept a
material reduction in wages for the next blast,
which will begin on September L
Mr. Wightman is one of the leading green
glass manuf actnf ers of Western Pennsylvania,
and was .chosen President of tbe conference.
This body is composed of workers and manu
facturers, and their duties are to arrange any
troubles that may occur during a blast.
The workers are all members of the Knights
of Xabor divided Into two district assemblies,
D. A 113, composed of workers ot tho West,
and D. A. 113, composed of workers of the
EaSt. When the wage scale is settled for a
blast, a Conference Committee of both sides is
appointed to settle any difficulties that may
arise during a blast.
.If the Western blowers accept a reduction in'
wages me jawreru workers must louowsuit.
An effort was made to see Mr. Wightman as to
tbe causes that have led to the proposition for
a reduction in wages, but as he Is out of tho
city he could not be seen. One of the workers,
who is among the leaders In tho organisation,
1 dO not know why there should be a reduc
tion In wages, and do not know why a reduc
tion should be offered, as trade is very good at
present. The letter received by Mr. Arrlngton
from President Wightman says: 'A very ma
terial reduction.' It will therefore not be any
ordinary reduction, but a big one. I do not be
lieve the workers will accept any reduction,
especially a 'material' one. Wo will hold a
convention some time in July; the place bas
not yet been named; but 1 am positive the con
vention will npt consent to any reduction In
wages. The Eastern and Western District As
semblies of tbe Knights of Labor will combine
on tho matter, and we may give them able

, About the 15th inst. be will sail for Europe

of the strike at the Duquesne Steel Works he
said he did not know there was a strike and
had not contributed to the support ox tne strik
ers. He declined to talk abont the South Penn
Railroad discriminations or anything else, say.
ing he had merely come here on private busi
ness. IS T. V. POWDERLI HERE?
A Number of People Positive That They Saw
Him Lnst Night nt tbe Duquesne, bnt He
Could Not bo Fonnd.
It was reported around, the Hotel Du
quesne last evening that General Master
Workman T, V. PowJerly, of' the fenigt'ts'
of Labor, was in, the city .and was? stopping
ai ins notei. ne was trying w,ci suaay
for some unknown reason, - and refused to
register his name. He was seea about 8,
o'clock going into the hotel by a printer, who
has attended Knights ot Labor general con
ventions, and had several, times con-;
versed with the General Master workman.
About an hoar previous to this, an attache
of tbe botel, said ho also saw Mr. PowdeHy.
About 9:30 he was also presumably seen in the
hotel office by a reporter, who, for reasons oest
known to the profession, did not deem it ad
visable to speak to himin tho presence of oth
ers. The roporter heard tho clerk order the
porter to "show Mr. Powderly to his room,"
and the guest who went up with the porter was
the very image of Mr. Powderly.
About 20 minutes after this occurrence are
porter called at the hotel and asked to see Mr.
Powderly. The clerk was positive that'there
was no" such person in tho bouse, and said Mr.
Powderly had not been around tho botel all
evening. The clerk knew Mr. Powderly," he
said, on account ot tbe many times he stopped
at the bouse, but be was not there then. In
quiry at other hotels failed to find him.
If tbe General Master Workman is in the
city, there is not the least doubt but that he
came here upon the matterof tho imported for
eign glassbfowers, and tho charges made
against L. A. 300, of the Knights of Labor. Ho
must have taken extra precautions or he would
not bavo been able to escape tbe hotel reporters.
He generally stops at the Central, and his idea
in going to the Duquesne was probably to ward
off the interviewers, who would not expect to
meet a labor leader in a high-toned hotel.

Although everything was quiet in and
around the Duquesne Steel Works yester
day, the first thing talked of in the morning
was a small riot which occurred at about
11:30 o'clock last night, in which an Italian,
Jeremiah Poluski, was badly injured. Foluskl
and a companion went up to Risher station on
tbe 1230 a. M. train, and was seen by a press
representative. He said that he had come
down to the steel works from McKeesportto
induce his brother, who works in the mill, to
come out and go home with him. While trying
to gain an entrance to the yard about six or
eight men came up to him, and without giving
him time to explain himself, began to club and
stone him. He substantiated his story by
showing the wounds ho had received, the worst
of which were a large lumpen his forehead
above the right eye, which, he said, was made
with a mace, and a-very large' cut over' the
left temple, from which blood was running

When tho 9:45 jv.ii. train came in yesterday
morning 23 men of several nationalities got off
at Oliver station, and were escorted to the
works by Blx deputies, Mr. E. T. Clark and the
employment agent, A P. Geisler. Abont four
days ago Gelslor was advised not to come to
Duquesne any more, and not having put in an
appearance until yesterday, tho strikers were
congratulating themselves that he had disap
peared and would bring no more men up.
Monday night at a bite hour tbe two Gil
hooleysand two other men employed in tbe
works made their appearance' at the postoffice,
opposite the hall, while the strikers were in
session. One of the strikers who had seen this

CABLE EXTENSHWiAT OAKLAND.
rreparftUons.io.,Giyo .Rapid Transit, to An-r"-
It;wagflearaed yesterday from a credible
jsource,that tho boon or rapid transit for
which the Oakland district between Fifth
avenue .and the Manongahelarhas been anx
iously fooking is soon to come. Plans are stated
to.be in course of preparation, and ordinances,
it is understood, will be introduced in Councils
next weekfor the .laying of a cable lino .from
tbe power house at. Oakland down Atwood
street to Coquet, along Boquet to Frazier,
along Frazier to Ward, and thence by Ward to
bemple street, where connection will be made
again with Atwood street
At first a horie-car line was spoken of for this
section, but the place is building up so rapidly
and promises to be so thickly settled that it was
seen cablo traction would bo more economical
and better suited to it in tbe end.
The-Pittsburg Traction Company is under
taking tbe enterprise. Tbe district, it is be
lieved, will verv soon be the most, profitable
feeder or that road. Already it is much in de
mand as a place of residence because of its
nearness to tbe older parts of the city, and with
this Improvement it will doubtless be still more
rapidly built up. Two of the principal streets
over which tbe route of the new cable is con
templated, Atwood aud Boquet, are to be
graded and paved this summer. It is said that
the cable work, it soon started, can be finished
by October, ,
