Kr. Andrew Carnegie informs The Dis

discriminations now practiced by the Penn

'Mr. Carnegie, The Dispatch thinks
that before you leave town for the summer
you should give the community a statement
regarding your recent attempt to obtain
from the railroads justice to Pittsburg.
Won't vou oblige us by so doing?"

you spoke editorially of the reduction that
bad been made to New York. How you
also have said that the people appreciate
these reductions, and advised the Pennsyl
vania Railroad to make a study of the whole
subject, and when it had this subject up
you advised them to deal thoroughly with
it; to place this community upon exactly as
favorable terms as were other and compet

can not but believe that it will be followed.

rvr Reporter Then you do not propose to go
B further at present, iu stirring the com
P& .muriity to demand justice ?
U t Mr. Carnegie Mv attitude at present is a
' waiting one. Mr. Roberts is a very fair
E. man indeed. I have known instances where
i.- be has made most important changes, when
? satisfied that injustice was being done. The
ifc X 'trouble was to get a knowledge of the situa
? -. lion at Pittsburg brought directly to his
"" notice, so as to render him responsible for
fe the continuance of it. He has too much to
do, and bas trusted far too much to Mr. Mo
Cullough and Mr. Stewart, who have
greatly injured the property of the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company, west of Pitts
burg, by their management. They are re
sponsible for the building of the Pittsburf
and Lake Erie Line, for the new line to
Fairport, causing the deficit which arises
from the operation of the Pennsylvania
Company's property generally. If these
Had Given Pittsburg Justice,
the Pennsylvania Railroad would have bad
as great a control of the business westward
from Pittsburg as it bas of the business
eastward. I understand Mr. Thomson, the
First Vice President, intended to be here
this week, to take up this subject. I have
no doubt as to the final result. Mr. Roberts
will order that the rates to Pittsburg shall
be made fair rates, as compared with those
given other districts. He will not support
flagrant discriminations if he once under

these three fair requests granted, I think
that every manufacturer in Pittsburg will
change position in regard to the railroads.
They will recognlza them as their allies and
friends, and be only too glad to co-operate
with them. There may be other equally
wrong discriminations in other branches of
business, of which I have no knowledge.

Reporter Mr. Carnegie, will you please
tell us something about the great fall in
the price of pig iron in the East, and also
about the reported sales of steel rails at
lower prices than ever before known?
Mr. Carnegie With .pleasure. The fall
in pig iron in the East will, of course, have
an indirect effect upon us here, but only an
indirect one. You notice that prices here of
pig iron have fallen a little, in sympathy
with thcEastern decline, and are now lower,
I believe, than ever before. . The truth is,
our country cannot consume the amount of
pig iron which it has the capacity to -produce.
The Eastern drop has been
Hastened by Southern Competition.
You know I told the Legislature, in my
address, that this competition would soon
be felt. It has come sooner than I ex
pected. That the consumption of iron and
steel is as great as it is arises from the fact
that owing to the advance in prices abroad
the American manufacturers are left for the
first time in almost complete control of our
home markets. But even under these con
ditions the country cannot take the amount
we are prepared to make, and prices must
rule low until a number of furnaces and
mill conclude that it is better to stop for
awhile than to continue running. It seems
probable that this will soon occur, for fur
naces cannot afford to pay the prices de
manded for ore and run at the rates now
ruling for pig iron.
Reporter You have not spoken ot steel
Mr. Carnegie Oh, I forgot these. We
know nothing about scales at the low prices
quoted. We have not made any of these
reported recent sales, and having filled to
our capacity for many months to come, at
much better prices, we are
Not Jntcrered In the Market.
When we need .orders we will, go In and
take them. The sliding scale with our men
puts, us all right, and 1 don't think any
price will be reached that will drive Us out
of the market. If labor only knew what a
blessing a sliding scale was to it, as well as
to us, we would hear nothing of strikes,
quarrels, unreasonable demands on the part
of te men, and unreasonable requirements
on the part of the employer. We are going
to have a happy family at all our works, as
we have at Edgar Thomson, or we are not
going to run them. No strikes and quarrels

Reporter Mr. Carnegie, one more ques
tion before you go: It has been stated that
Mr. Phipps and yourself are about to retire
from business. Is this true?
Mr. Carnegie There is a great deal of
truth in that Mr. Phipps and I feel our
selves entitled to take matters easy now.
The folly of the American man is remaining
in business after he is SO. We have sold
large interests in our firms to the most

Washington, May 10. The four-year
term of tbe Democratic Collector of Internal
Revenue for the Twenty-third Pennsylvania
District expired yesterday, and to-day Mr.
Samuel "Warmcastle was appointed to that
position. The fact that the new appoint
ment was not made until four years had
elapsed after the appointment of the former
incumbent is not to be taken as & precedent
It is not tbe intention of the President to be
so considerate in all cases. It is only those
terms which expire soon whose end will be
awaited, and that may be the case with the
Pittsburg postmastership, as four years will
shortly expire from the date of Mr. Larkin's
appointment, though his commission dates
from a much later period.
It is probable thatboth the Allegheny and
Pittsburg appointments will soon be made,
though, and there seems to bet little or no
doubt that McKean will get that for Pitts
burg and Gilliland for Allegheny, There
are good reasons also for the belief that
several Allegheny County gentlemen will
soon be appointed to consulates, and a very
good authority to-day gave a rather surpris
ing list of probabilities, including no fewer
names than those of John Jarrett for Shef
field, William Martin for a place in Scot
land, T. R. Morris for some point in Europe,
Walter Scaife or Major Joseph T. Speer for
Munich, Wynn Sewell for Nice, and John

with Kilrain, he became indignant Mr,
Germain, although a little man, so far as
stature goes, is plucky, also fearless. He
immediately sent for Charlie Johnson and
Jim Wakely, the former one of his backers,
the other his manager. Treasurer Germain
waxed wrathy while waiting, and as he
watched the maudlin efforts ot the man his
employers had put up their money for, he
could not restrain from expressing his
opinion. With cane in hand he marched
up in front of the slugger and gave him a
piece of his mind.
SOiTE PLAIN TALK.
Omitting all adjectives, Treasurer Ger
main told Snllivan that he-must remember
he was in New York and not in Boston; that
if he wanted to continue making a hog oi
himself he had better go back to Boston and
brace up on baked beans. Sullivan swayed
around the pool table, glared at Germain,
bnt made no attempts to annihilation
furtherV-han to tell the treasurer of the
llluK ' Veto to go to sheol.
Abo ais time Mr. Frederick Wil
lets, JCoprietor of the Illustrated
News, entered the cafe. He saw
tbe condition Sullivan was in. Aside from
the large sum of money he has at stake on
the fisht with Kilrain, Mr. Willets is pay
ing Sullivan $50 a week. While he said
nothing he did a heap of thinking. He
retired without expostulating, but when
Jim Wakely put in an appearance it was
more lively. He remonstrated with Sul
livan over his conduct, but in vain; the
"big fellow" was bound to make a night of
it He did.
A Dispatch reporter was told to-day
that the Illustrated News proprietors were
not only sick of Sullivan's actions, but wero
disheartened. They had tried to make a
man of him and put up their moneyon him,
aud one who is in a position to speak au
thoritatively frankly admitted this after
noon that the outlook was discouraging.
Kilrain's friends, who have heard of the
latest escapade of Sullivan, are jubilant,
and now are willing to bet their bottom pile
on their favorite.

Grand Central station last night it carried
John.L. Sullivan and William Muldoon on
their way to Muldoon's farm near Chau

WASHErOTOiTjMaylO. On the 10th of
April last the Inter-State Commerce Com
mission heard tbe complaint of William H.
Heard, colored, versus the-Georgia Rail
road Company. The charges involved in
the complaint were that in traveling over
the defendant's road, from Augusta to At
lanta, the petitioner was compelled to ac
cept second-class accommodations, being
obliged to occupy a compartment car, al
though he had purchased a first-class ticket,
which guaranteed .him first-class accommo
dations. The Co imission, in an opinion
by Mr. Bragg, rendered to-day, holds as
First It is a lawful duty that a carrier, like
the defendant, owes to the, traveling public in
carrying out its rule for furnishing separate
cars to white and colored passengers on il line
engaged in Inter-Stato travel, to make them
equal in comforts, accommodations and equip
ment without any discrimination.
Second Itis a lawful dntythat a carrier
like the defendant owes to the traveling public
engaged in lnter-atate travel over its line, to
afford equal facilities to all alike, without re
gard to race, color or sex, asalnst prejudice
and disadvantage from disorderly conduct en
tbe part of other passengers or persons.
Third Oh tbe facts In this proceeding held
that tho defendant violated the law in each of
the foregoing respects as against petitioner.

The weather man reported last night's
rainfall as "0.3 feet" An inch is a great
fall for 24 hours. Here is nearly one-third
of a foot The mercury had been np to
90 an exceptionally hot day for July or
August Hail and rain did their work
with a seeming vengeance. That they
wrought damage must he apparent every-
where to-day. There was so much ot it
lost night that it was hard to find in detail,
Some people were inclined to think last
night that Dame Nature had kicked the
bucket, over. She had been very kind, but
rather fervent, and a smart rain and even a r
modicum of hail would have been accept-
able in lieu of the torridity, but hearts
failed as the hailstones grew in diameter
and visions of damage floated in the minds
of most people.
' 'Twas a great storm; but the faefthitit
was a home production, and we are not in
debted for it to the windy West, may be a ,
consolation to some people. The gentlemaa .
in charge of tho Signal Service office in this
city stated that; while he had been anxious
ly awaiting developments from the numer
ous areas ot low barometer in the Northwest,.. ,
they passed eastward, or a little north of
east and left us to get up our own weather
for the time being.
There was snow yesterday at Cheyeans
and Washakie, Wyo. T.; Montrose, jCoLt
and at Rawlins and Salt Lake City 42-100
of an inch at the first name'd place. " "

The Signal Serviea officials have for several; -
days tested the truth of the proverb that all
signs of rain fail in dry weather, and they
finally got their dose after they had ceased
making calculations for it.
The highest temperature recorded hero
yesterday was 90, and the lowest, previous
to 8 o'clock P. M., 65. The maximum was
between 1 and 2 P. at. The thermometer
registered 76 at 8 A. M.; 87 at noon; 88
at 2 P. ir., and 68 at 8 p. ir.
Much solicitude was felt regarding the
fate of the fruit bldom. It was generally
agreed that much of it would be destroyed;
but, as there was more promised than trees
would be able to support without propping,
it Was hoped the hail would spare some
thing. Gardeners who were about the Dia
mond Market were apprehensive that the
lass in their hotbeds would be destroyed,
ut no reports of such destruction were for
warded. The real git-up-and-git part of the storm
reached Pittsburg about 6:40 o'clock in tha
evening, though it had been threatening to
rain previously. About 7 o'clock there was
a heavy fall of hail, and at 9 the rain storm
struck the citv with full force in sheets
in blankets, if you please. The water just
poured down, and in a few minutes tha
streets and sewers were flooded. The down
pour of water for about five minutes was
and more than one man was heard to remark
that he had never seen it rain so hard be
fore. Almost in an instant the streets were
deserted, and the crowds going home sought
shelter under the nearest awnings and in'
doorways. With one fell swoop the water
came down with such blinding effect that
the street cars had to stop on the tracks.
Under snch circumstances there was
bound to be considerable damage, and when
the fury of the storm had abated somewhat
the police reports began to come in. Tho
cellars of the power houses on both cable
roads were soon flooded and the fires under
the boilers put out The cars stopped run
ning a little after 10 o'clock, and the Pitts
burg Traction people sent to the fire depart
ment for a steamer to pump out the water.
Three landslides occurred on the B. & O.
road between the Tenth street bridge and,
Soho. Several tons of rock and earth cov-1'

of the city no damage of any account was
done. The sewers were not blocked, and
the water was carried away almost as fast
as it came down. Here and there street car
tracks on Smithfield street were covered
with rubbish, but only to such an extent
that a few men would soon remove it
Some amusing incidents happened when
the great downpour occurred, a little after
10 o'clock. The rain was so sudden that a
number of people were drenched before
they could get undercover. Ladies wrapped
their dresses about them, unmindful of gen
eral remarks and appearances. A few
"boozy" citizens kept jogging, along, ap
parently unconscious of the mixing of their
drinks with so much, water.
At 11 o'clock it was still raining, but the
fury of the storm was over. The streets
were deserted, and outside of an occasional
cop not a soul could be seen on. the avenne
or Smithfield street A small crowd of men
and women in wet garments fluttered like
scared chickens in tho postoffice building
waiting for the rain to stop.
The rain was especially severe in the
eastern portion of Allegheny. Most of the
houses along Spring Garden avenne, Madi
son avenue andJEast street were filled with'
water and some parts of these thoroughfares
were covered with water for several squares.
