"While in consultation with Judge "White
yesterday Josiah Cohen, Esq., raised several
new questions in regard to the matter of
rehearings for liquor licenses, and the per
severing attorney will carry them to the
Supreme Court next.
It was the Judge's first day at the Court
House since the night he announced his de
cisions. He came to the city early yester
day morning, and arrived at the Court
House a few minutes before 9 o'clock. The
early loungers on Grant street greeted
him with a cheery "Good -morning!"
and the old man who runs
tbe elevator started it the wrong way, so sur
prised was he at seeing the Judge back again.
His Honor upon reaching the Common Fleas
rooms passed into bis private chamber, where
lie perused The Dispatch. lie was appar
ently much interested in tbe latest utterances
wf George ShirassHL
A LOKG CONSULTATION.
At 8.55 one of the tip staves! carried a card to
Urn from Josiah Cohen and the latter was ad
mitted without delay. Mr. Cohen was closeted
with Judge White until 11:45 o'clock, when
tbe latter appeared and started for Hagan's
restaurant to get bis lunch. Mr. Cohen
stuck to him closer than a brother,
and all the way down street the
attorney used every argument in bis power to
make the Judge see that it was necessary to
grant several petitions for rehearings. Judge
sad attorney dined together. Upon coming
out of the restaurant they met W. S. Brown,
Chief of the Bureau of Water. Mr. Brown
shook hands with the Judge and congratulated
bim, probably upon tbe fact that moro water
would be drank in the future than there was
in the past, and tbe receipts of the department
would increase accordingly. At the postofflce
tbe Judge met James W. Drape, the real estate
agent, who shook hands, probably upon the
number ot good business locations that were
thrown upon tbe real estate market. Going
Up Fifth avenue again, the Judge met a little
urchin near tho corner of Grant street, who took
off bis cap, through which his hair was sprout
ing, eaying at the same time, "Howdy. Judge."
Most of the time the Judge kept his eyes rlv
teted upon the ground, while listening to Mr.
1 Cohen, and it was only when accosted that he
would look up, and then in a fearless kind of
way which snowed that be was not amoral
ABBIYES AT A DECISION.
Leaving Mr. Cohen at the corner he passed
into tbe Court House and sought seclusion in
his chamber. Then he considered tbe matter
presented to him by Mr. Cohen, and after con
salting with Judge Ewmg be wrote an opinion
and order on tbe application of T. D. Casey for
a rehearing. It is Intended to answer all such
applications. It is as follows:
In rcapplication of T. D. Casey for wholesale
license; White, J. Quarter sessions, March
7. License application for rehearing.
No application for license, whether retail or
wholesale, or any other, was refused because of
personal feelings toward the applicant, or of
any personal qpiniqn,aata the liquor business,
or because of" air private information or any
information received after the applicant was
beard in open court. Every case was decided
upon the evidence received at the time of tbe
bearing. In every case where tho evidence
showed that tbe applicant had the qualifica
tions required by law, and had kept tbe laws on
tbe subject, the license was granted. In every
case refused the evidence showed that the ap
plicant bad not tbe qualifications, or the bouse
was wholly unnecessary, or the applicant had
been guilty of repeated -violations of the law,
or had carried on bis business in such an im
proper and illegitimate manner, that it would
be unsafe and dangerous to tbe public welfare
to renew bis license.
No case was decided hastily, or arbitrarily.
Every case was considered most patiently
and thoroughly, with the sincere desire
and earnest effort to do justice and
carry out tbe law in its true spirit and
interest. As every applicant was fully
beard and bad an opportunity of answering or
explaining every allegation made against him,
there is no good ground for a rehearing in any
case. Besides, if the rehearing were granted
in any one case, it would certainly involve a re
hearing in nearly all refused cases, which would
require weeks of laborj and, in all probability,
result in greater dissatisfation. For these
reasons I think all applications for rehearings
THE FABEWELL OEDEE.
Attorneys representing this and other appli
cations for wholesale license contend that tbe
Court has no discretionary power in applica
tions for wholesale license. Tnat question
was raised last year when Judge Ewing sat
with me in the License Court. We beard
counsel on the question then. Both of us
interpreted the law as giving us (the Court)
discretion, and we acted upon it then. This
year I beard brief arguments by counsel on tbe
question during tho hearing. AS we are both
ot the same opinion still there is no seed of
turther argument; besides. It would only cause
delay in getting the question before tbe
Supreme Court. In the paper filed in No. 1,
stating the grounds upon which I acted in
granting and refusing licenses, I referred to
the legal question involved, and briefly stated
my view of tbe wholesale act as giving the
Court discretionary power.
Both my brethren on the bench. Judges
Ewing and Magee, agree with me in the con
clusion not to grant any rehearings, and also
write tbe following order:
And now. May 9, 18S9, the motion for a rehearing
'in this case, is refused.
Ana it is tanner oraerea mat me ciert or court

C&sev. Mo. 2223.
And It is farther ordered that if, on appeal to the
Supreme Court In one case, the action or order of
this court should be reversed tbe decision of the
'Supreme Court will be applied to all refused cases
of a similar character. This order is made tosave
tbe trouble and expense of taking an appeal in
' each case. i?XB Cukiam.
JOSIAH COHEN'S 2fE1V POINTS.
Judge White had over two hours' conversa
'tion with Judge Ewing as to whether tbe cases
should be reopened or not. Judge Ewing de
clined to interfere in the matter in behalf of
anybody. After drawing up the opinion in due
form he carried it to Judge Magee, who read it
and concurred with Judge White. The former
was trying tbe Starr railroad caso in the Crimi
nal Court, and after 15 minutes' conversation
between tbe two judges the opinion was band
ed over to Clerk of Courts McGnnnegle to
make a record and act as per instructions.
The new points presented to Judge White hv
Josiah Cohen, and upon which the latter will
carry his cases to the Supreme Court, were ex
plained to the writer by the attorney, who said:
"In my talk with Judge White I went over a
great amount of ground and tried to show him
where it was absolutely necessary to recon
sider some of the applications. I bad a copy of
the Brooks law with me and showed il to Judge
While, with new constructions placed upon
parts of tbe act. 1 called bis attention to tbe
fact that in tbe wholesale act, second section.
In referring to wholesalers the law says that
the Court shall bear remonstrances, but in
tho third section of the wholesale act
which refers to bottlers, only, it docs not say
so. It may be that tbe words in tbe second sec
tion also refer to the third, and were not
placed there because it was not necessary to
pat them in each section. This matter is of
great Interest to the bottlers, and will furnish a
good basis for argument in the Supremo

"Willyoucarryitto tbe higher court your-
I will not say that I will, but It will be done by
somebody else if not by me. I told Judge White
of this, but he did not seem to think it worth
while to reopen the cases upon this point. Jndge
White seemed to think that all the legal ques
tions which hare been raised hare been de
termined by the courts, and there was no ne
cessity for any rehearings of any of the appli
cations. "I called bis attention also to the fact tbat
discretion under the clause referring to whole
salers is a discretion only as to the character of
tbe applicant, and not as to tho necessity of the
business. Upon this point also we will do some
thing In the supreme Court."

SOME BIG PLANS.
Retail Llqnor Dealer Appoint n Committee
of 34 They Will Visit Business Men
Asking for Tote AsainstProhlblllon.
A. large contingent of the retail liquor
dealers of Pittsburg and Allegheny held a
meeting yesterday afternoon in Grand
Army Hall for the purpose of discussing means
and ways for tbe coming campaign against the
prohibition amendment. There were about 100
men present, and a number of speeches were
made, suggestions offered and advisory re
marks were indulged in for the benefit of those
Matt Weiss was called to the chair, and he
immediately asked those present to express
their views as to what should be done.
"1 think," thereupon remarked one of the
men, "that we ought to appoint a committee
large enough to cover the entire city and
agitato tbe question among all those trades
men who are more or less directly interested
in the success of tho defeat of the prohibition
This was thought to do good advice, and a
motion was passed to appoint a committee of
64 men to see that everything is done to get
tbe butchers, bakers, cigar makers and other
tradesmen interested. Tbe committee is tore-
gort progress at the meeting of the Campaign
ommlttee ot tbe Anti-Prohibition League,
wmcb win convene on next jtionuay alter
noon. One of the men who bad been in the meeting
while sneaking of the business having been dis
cussed, stated to a Dispatch reporter:
It is our intention to have a man appointed,
or if necessary, even two or three for each
polling precinct. This man will not only at
tend to seeing that every man, whom we know
is for us, will cast bis vote accordingly, but
these men will also do some quiet electioneer
ing among the people in their districts."
THE BEEWEES JIEET.
They Hear Campaign News and Fix the
Price of Beer.
There were onlv a few brewers at the
meeting of the "Wholesale Liquor Sealers'
Association in their hall, on Fourth ave
nue, yesterday. Tbe question of foreign beer
was discussed again, but the matter bad been
put into the bands of a committee, which was
to have reported on the subject yesterday, but
inasmuch as the major part of that committee
was not present no action could be taken on
Mr. John Straub, who bad been in Phila
delphia for several days consulting methods
and details for the prosecution of the coming
campaign against the prohibition amendment,
made a speech. Tbe Campaign Committee is
now perfectly organized, and tbe work is going
along very systematically.
"From what I am able to learn," said a
brewer to the reporter subsequently, "we have
nearly 2,000,000 in the campaign fund, and if
money can win the fight I think we have
every reason to consider ourselves al
ready victorious. It is the object
of tbe campaign;ommittee to send emissaries
of the league into every polling district
throughout tbe State. It will bo the duty of
these men to bring the object of the 18th of
June before tbe people and to make everybody
acquainted with tbe question at issue. Litera
ture money will be amply in bis supply for
judicious and fruitful distribution.
"Tbe last thing which was brought up for dis
cussion in the meeting was tbe question of
prices for bottled beer. There are eight brew
ers and wholesale bottlers in Pittsburg and
Allegheny outside of the regular bottlers who
confine themselves to that part of the busmess
exclusively. After a short discussion the price
decided upon was $1 20 for a dozen quart bottles
and 65 cents for a dozen of pint bottles."
ED HUEPHY FOEPEOHIBETIOy.
Hakes a Plea at a Constitutional
The Constitutional amendment meeting
at the Bingham street II. E. Church was
addressed by Ed Murphy last night. In
the course of bis speech he said that the auti
Prohibitionists were making capital out of the
report that his father is against the amend
ment. He said this was not true. He merely
declined to go on the stump for it, because his
other duties will not permit it
Mr. Murphy claimed that prohibition will
prohibit, and be cited the Sunday act of 1791
that tbe Law and Order Society had enforced
in Pittsburg. There are a great many people
who condemn the law as unjust, but yet they
abide by it.
He said further that the redeeming features
of tbe Brooks law are prohibitory. People may
think it strange that he has come out for
the third party, but he js a believer
in prohibition. For all that he thinks
that it will bo necessary to keep up his gospel
work to save the man who will vote for prohi
bition and then sneak around the corner to get
a drink. Mr. Murphyargued that if the Brooks
law reduces the number of saloons in Pittsburg
to 83 in two years, that prohibition will almost
eradicate the drink traffic
A WILD TALE.
A Detective Tells How He Ban Down tbe
Robert Montgomery and Samuel Wood,
of Butler county, and David S. Dunn, of
Homewood were placed on trial in the
United States Circuit Court yesterday on a
charge of passing counterfeit money. Wood at
once plead guilty, and the trial of tbe other two
men proceeded. United States Detective Con
nella worked the case np, and his testimony
was tbat he visited Dunn at his home in Home
wood, and solicited some counterfeit money
from himsayingtbat he wanted to engage in a
poker gamo In the Bed Liion Hotel In this city,
and he could just as easyuse counterfeit money
as good money. Dunn told bim tbat he did not
have any, but gave bim a letter to Robert
Montgomery, of Butler county. The letter read
"Let him have a pony; be is all right."
This letter was sent to Montgomery who an
swered it, stating that on a certain night a man
would arrive at the Pittsburg and Western
depot with tbe counterfeit money. Tbe party
would be known by an ostrich feather in his
bat. On the night in question tbe detective,
accompanied by Dnnn. was at tbe depot and
soon found the man they sought, who proved
to be Wood, and who said that he had only
brought 11 along to show what kind of money
After some talk Wood admitted that he did
bring tbe money along and bad secreted it at a
certain place. The party then proceeded to
the place of concealment, which was Wildwood
Grove, on the Pittsburg and Western Railroad.
The money was secreted under the picnic
dancing platform, and amoun ted to $100. This
was purchased by tbe detective for $30. The
arrest of the prisoner followed.
Charles A. Sullivan, Esq, represented tbe
Erisoner, Dunn, and made an eloquent plea in
is behalf, claiming that he conld not be found
guilty as be had not handled any of tbo money
and bad merely furnished some information.
The jury found Montgomery guilty as indicted,
and acquitted Dunn, Montgomery Is an old
man with gray hair and beard. He has served
one term in the penitentiary for counterfeit

Is What Allegheny Will Be When the Next
Ccoans li Token.
The classification bill passed by the Leg
islature on "Wednesday permits Allegheny
to become a city of the second class, aa the
papulation necessary is 100,000. Allegheny has
that number, but not officially, and it will be
necessary to take a special census to go into
the class if It is desired to do so at present,
lbe Federal census wilt not be taken until 1890.'
City Solicitor Elphinstone said it was not
necessary to take a special census bnt that
Councils can order one if they desire to go into
tbe second class at once, He did not care to
express an opinion on tbe subject, bnt said that
when Allegheny entered the second class it
would probably be governed by a charter simi
lar to that of Pittsburg.

HALF-DAT , SESSIONS.
A Movement to Eednce the Working
Eonrs in the Public Schools
DURING THE VEEI HOT WEATHER,
Ho the Plan Wonld Operate in a Well
TEACHEES AND ptjPILS OTEEWOEKED
Such weather as has been experienced by
Pittsburgers for two or three days is suffi
cient to cause any man, woman or child to
quake when the thought of bard work or ex
acting duty comes up. Especially the school
children, who longingly have awaited the com
ing of the sunny days, are aroused to a sense of
shirking studies and surreptitiously taking a
"ticket-of-leave" from chestnut readers, stern
pedagogues and the stinging switch.
To obviate all this trouble, a movement is
now on foot which will give both teachers and
scholars more time to recreate by introducing
the half-day system during the months of May
and June, whether it will succeed generally
throughout the 37 different wards, including
the sub-districts of the city, is another question.
It is thought by many that the scheme is a
most commendable one. but it is Bimnlv within
tbe rulings of each ward and their schools. If
one ward says "no" that ono shall have full day
IT IS DISCEETIONAET.
In other words they can each use their own
judgment as to the practicability and bene
ficial results accruing from it As yet no sug
gestion by the teachers have been made at the
Central Board of Education for the plan, and
Charles Reisfar, Jr., Secretary, said to The
Dispatch writer that Superintendent Luckey
or himself would hardly hear of It before to
morrow, when the teachers generally congre
gate at the education rooms 'to talk over mat
ters." The question has been brought up re
peatedly, but until then nothing will be defi
nitely known what tbe outcome will be.
In five schools of the suburban wards the
half-day system is carried on. and has proven
to be an eminent success. The majority of
schools at present convene at 8.30 A.M.. the
session opening at 8:45, followed by recitations,
then lHminutes recess is allowed at 10.30. The
scholars then reassemble and recite, when din
ner hour is announced, which lasts from noon
till 1 o'clock. This over, the school is in session
until 3 o'clock, when it dismisses.
WHAT EXPERIENCE SHOWS.
"Experience shows," said a teacher for many
years, "that during hot weather the pup Js are
practically 'outof school,' and I cannot imagine
what benefit will be derived, from an educa
tional standpoint, by either the absent ones or
those who demorahze the former by their in
dolence and lack of studious attention to
"To show you," continued the teacher, "the
superiority and benefltTesulting from tbe half
day session, the school is called at 8 a. H., and
irom tbat hour have a continual course of reci
tations nntil 12 noon, abolishing the recess as
heretofore has been the rule, thus accomplish
ing as much and probably more than a whole
schoolday of study, etc. The whole secret of
tbe thing is that our pupils are fresh in the
morning and are more capable, but as the day
wanes their efforts become irksome and "with
out consequent fruit. A great many parents
Keep their children at home on hot afternoons
rather than risk their health by overheating
On this subject an amateur teacher said:
"I certainly approve of the new plan. My ex
perience has been that the afternoon hours are
a drag on both pupils and teacher. Many of
them eat hearty dinners, and the tendency is
strong to go to sleep.
"Under such circumstances nothing really Is
accomplished. The minds of the scholars are
sluggish and the hours are actually wasted.
From a hygienic point of view it would be
much better for the boys and girls to exercise
their bodies during the afternoon. The time
could not be pnt to better use, and tbe im
provement in their work would De noticeable.
"Most thinkers admit that they do their best
work in the morning after a good night's rest,
when the brain feels like working. If the op
posers of this new plan could only see the pu
pils and teacher struggling in a hot summer
afternoon, they would readily see that more
work can be done in four hours in the morning
than three in the afternoon. If tho work were
physical it wonld be different, but when tbe
mind is weary there can bo no concentration."
THE PITTSBURG POLICE.
Captain Brown, the Drillmniter, Talk
About Them What a Tear's Practice
Did Changes From the Past Great
It was a year yesterday since Captain J.
A, A. Brown began to drill the city police
force. Speaking of his experience Captain
"The people thought a year ago this was
a spasmodic move that would soon die out.
But we have stuck to it, and as a result we
hare a police force that will compare with
any force in the country in regard to discipline
and regular military tactics. I am especially
well pleased with the result of my work with
the men in the Third district. I would not bs
afraid to drill the police of the Southside either
in single or double rank with any military or
ganization in the city."
Speaking of the advantages of having a
drilled force. Captain Brown said: "In the first
place, drilling disciplines a force. It teaches
the men how to wear a uniform first, and then
it teaches them to be courteous in their
manner and improves their generalappearance.
Imagine an undisciplined force at the station
house just before roll call. The Chief or some
other superior official comes in and he is
greeted with, 'Hello. Chief, 'How are you,
John,' or some similar remark. There is
nothing of that sort with the force in this city.
The salute is given by every officer in a neat
and skillful manner. The men are deserving

The Dnqnesne Steel Workers Want
Dunn's Assailant Punished.
SOME THREATS ARE BEING' MADE.
Master Workman Boss, of D, A. 3, K, of L,,
Assailed bj His Enemies,
A GEOTJNDIESS CHARGE TBEFEERED
Notwithstanding the serious shooting
affray at Homestead, Wednesday night,
comparatively the day was very qnietat
Duquesne. William Dnnn, the stiiker who
was shot, is lying at his home and is very
seriously injured. Drs. Gladdin and Mc-
Caslin, who are attendinghim, say his chances
for recovery are pretty fair as long as inflam
mation does not set in.
The feeling of the strikers is very bitter
against the steel company. One of the strikers,
in speaking about the shooting of Dunn by an
employe ot the steel company, said that it was
tbe second time tbat blood had been shed on
their side, and that the citizens must not be
Bumrisedshould an vthinz serious occur nhnrtlv.
- An interesting incident occurred yesterday
morning. J onn carr, a man who Is at work for
tho steel company and lives across the river,
while coming to work was met by the strikers
and given a severe ducking in the river, which
almost resulted in his being drowned. After
this they brought him to the shore and daubed
him from head to foot with mud. He was then
taken to the gates and driveri into the works.
While the strikers were still on the river
shore, John Beddo, one of the bosses in the
steel works, came across with a skiff load of
men. who were on their way to work, and was
driven back to tbe other side.
The strikers held a meeting at which nothing
much was done except to discuss the sbooting
of William Dunn, hear reports from soliciting
committees, and resolution to reopen their
supply store. The store was opened last even
ing. At 10 o'clock in the morning 21 Italians em
ployed in tbe works struck for higher wages,
which the company refused to Day. Thev then
demanded their money, which was paid to
them, and then went to Pittsburg on the 11:19
A. M. train.
Sheriff McCandless went out on the 720 A. X.
train and ordered all the strikers to not gather
in crowds, as it was against tbe injunctions
that were served on them. After the Sheriff
had explained the law to them, almost all of
the men went to their homes, and up to 9 15
p. m. a striker conld hardly be seen walking the
Sheriff McCandless then returned to the city
on the 11.49 A. M. train, and returned to Home
stead on the 2 p. jr. train, and then went to Du
quesne on the 4-06 P. M. train. He held a con
sultation with the deputies in regard to the
situation. DeputyNewellwas placed in charge
of the deputies, there being eight or 10 of
them; and they say tbat they are ready tor any
thing that may turn up.
THE CLAIMS MADE.
The strikers still claim that tho company
had only 77 men until yesterday and the 21
Italians leaving left but 6 men, notwithstand
ing the company claims to have from 150 to 225
on their roll, and they are making about 300
rails per day.
At 9.45 everything was very quiet, but the
citizens think trouble is liable to occur at most
any moment, so everybody is on their guard
ana tne aeputies are continually patroung tne
yards and rai'road.
An application was made to Judge Magee
yesterday by C. C. Magee. Esq., to have Wm.,
Galloway, who shot Wm. Dnnn at Homestead
Wednesday night, released on bail. Mr. Dickey
held that as Galloway was a deputy sheriff and
Dunn a fugitive from justice, it was dneto pub
lic morality that he be released. This morning
at 10 o'clock was fixed for hearing the case.

Charges Preferred Against I. N. Boss and
Others of D. A. 3, K. of L.
The District Court of D. A. 3, Knights of
Labor, will hold an important session to
night Although tho proceedings of the
District Courts of the Knights of Labor are
more secret than any otbe.r bodies in the order.
I something leaked out yesterday as to the pro
gramme lor to-nignt's business.
An effort is being made to investigate the
present efficient Master Workman of the dis
trict, and one of the charges to be investigated
by the court is tbat bo bas misappropriated
funds to tbe amount of $1,200. Tbe charge, it
is claimed, was made by W.D. McAuliffe, a
member of tbe Board of Trustees, and one of
tbe witnesses is a member of tbe court If the
charge were true: which is absurd, as Mr.
Ross, tbe Master Workman, holds receipts for
all money he handled, it could not be tried by
the district court
Treasurer Hughes was surprised when a
Dispatch reporter told him yesterday tbat he
had learned of the charge against Mr. Ross,
and said that the member who bad spoken on
the subject bad violated his obligation, and
was not worthy to be a member of tbe order.
He said be had received all the money that had
passed through Mr. Ross' hands, and that the
latter could produce receipts for the same.
Mr. Ross declined to talk on the subject, only
saying that the charge would certainly fail
through, as he held receipts for all the money
collected. He declined to give any reason why
tho charge was preferred, but said: "The man
who violates bis obligation in court cases is
liable to expulsion by the general body."
At tbe court to-night a number of trials will
occur, some of which have been held over for
almost a year, and It is believed that some
members will be exoelled.
HELD FOE C0NSPIEACY.
The Green Glass Troable at Bridgton
The strike at the green glass factory at
Bridgton, N. J., is becoming interesting.
Mention was made the other day of the re
turn of President Smith with six strikers who
bad taken the places ot strikers. Since that
time Master Workman Coffey, of D. A. 119. K.
of L., and others were prosecuted for conspiracy
in preventing tbe firm from operating their
Tbe case came up in court yesterday, and the
following telegram received last night by John
M. Kelly, of the Commoner and Glass Worker,
"The grand jury has found a bill against me
for conspiracy, but I am prepared to defend
myself against tbe malicious persecution of tho
unscrupulous corporation who have provoked
this trouble. John Coffey."

Nothing bas yet been said about the last
dozen that arrived, and nothing definite could

THE COKE MADE.
The Condition ofMSalrs la Not
cournglng as Reported.
The Courier, in its weekly coke review,
will say to-day: "The coke trade is pro
nounced by some operators to be on the high
road to Improvement It may bo beading tbat
way, but tbe figures don't show that it nas
made much progress so fan. they do show, how
ever, that trade continues to hold its own, and
tbat if prices were mora reasonable the busi
ness would yield a profit in spite of the fact
that the demand bas fallen below the product
ive capacity of tbe region 25 per cent
The low price of pig iron and the dragging
condition of that market is no excuse for the
cutting of the price of coke 1 cent lower than
SI 25; in fact it is the opinion of many sales
agents that the figure need never have gone
below SI SO. -
"Tbe operations of the 77 coke plants in the
Connellsville regionor the week ending on
Saturday last snows 10,695 of the ia,:co com'

THE WINDOW GLASS TEADE.
Official Reports Show Business Is Better
Than Last Week.
Ex-President Isaac Cline, of the Window
Glass Workers' Association, who is now as
sociate editor of the National Olass Budget,
has prepared an interesting report of the con
dition of affairs in that line which will be pub
lished in the next issue of that paper. He is
now on a tour among the Eastern glass fac
tories, and says there is not an overproduction
and that stocks are not accumulating. The
men in tbe New Jersey factories are working
close to the limit At Malajo, N. J., a ten-pot
inrnace is being operated with artificial gas as
fuel and it is a success. The pots stand the
heat for 11 or 12 weeks.
At Glassboro the firm intend to build a tank
similar to the Streeter tanks. Several firms in
the East contemplate erecting tank furnaces.
The window glass report for tbe week shows
that there are 1.051 not operating and 280 are
idle. This is an increase of 26 idle pots, cansed
by the shutting down of the works of A. & D.
H. Chambers but week.

pointed committees to make arrangements for
the State parade to be held in Harrisburg in
A motion to invite the Senior order was laid
on the table. The Juniors feel sore. It is said,
because tbe Seniors were insubordinate on
Washington's Birthday, and considerable bad
feeling between the orders Is tbe result.
About 6,000 men will go to Harrisburg from
IT WAS A MISTAKE.
The TJrsnllnr-Convent Will Not bo Sold on
- Any Condition.
It was erroneously stated in yesterday's
Dispatch that the Sisters of Mercy might
buy the property of the Ursuline Nuns.
This statement, It seems, had no foundation
whatever, because tbe present owners of tbe
Ursuline Convent have no desire to sell that
place for any consideration. The Ursuline Sis
ters and the Sisters of Mercy are on the best of
terms. The former do not object to selling a
few lots on the outskirts of the Ursuline estate.
The Ursuline Academy was never in a better
condition than at present The number of
scholars is constantly growing, and the con
vent enjoys the greatest prosperity.

Aa Allegheny Bulldog Looked Up Mae
Years' Imprisonment Shot Yesterday.
A fine, but very ferocious, bulldog, whisk
had been kept in close confinement in a
'cellar for nine years, was shot and killed
yesterday. It was the property of Mr. Chris
Bichter, of 43 Main street, Allegheny. Tho
other day Officer Snyder was asked to enter the
cellar and kill the brute, but he refused, as ha
was acquainted with the animal before it was
locked np. In speaking of the dog's career last
night Officer Snyder said:
When Lewis Peters on was Mayor this dog,
which is one of the finest in the country, bit a
man and the owner was sued before Mayor
Peterson. The suit was compromised and Mr.
Richter sent tbe dog to the country. A few
days later it came home, having broken the
rope. Mr. Richter locked it up in the cellar,
and it has been there ever since. Mr. Bicbter
moved on April 1, and tbe new tenants wanted
to nse the cellar, bnt could not do so as tbe dog
bad possession. He wanted me to open the
door, and when the dog appeared to fill it with
bullets. As I was wellacquainted with the an
imal I declined the job. A man in Sharpsburg
who had heard that bull dog fat wait good for
the consumption agreed to kill the dog if ha
was given its body. A contract was made and
he succeeded in ending its existence."
