Historical Scenes of Early Pittsbnrg
JPut ia Colors,
BY THE BRUSH OPFAMODS BLITHE.
Connoisseurs Attending the Sale Bo Some
6T0EIES ATTACHED TO THE PICTUBES
Hany connoisseurs ia art attended the
auction sale of household effects at the man
sion of the late John Scott, President of the
Allegheny Valley Railroad, at the corner
of Shad j lane and Forbes street. This led
to spirited bidding for some historical old
paintings which Mr. Scott had possessed
ever since he bought them from the cele
brated artist who made them, but -which, ac
cording to the railroad magnate's trill, had
to be sold -with other of his possessions.
Neatly all the wealthy families of the East
End were represented at the sale.
By all odds the most valuable oil paint
ins placed under the hammer Tras that en
titled "A Democratic Procession." It was
one of the masterpieces of Blythe, the Pitts
burs artist of olden times, whose fame was
world-wide. The picture is about 2430
inches in size, and is framed in heavy
carved oak. It was finally knocked down
to John Newell for $150. Some persons, es
pecially older inhabitants of the city, hare
been known to estimate its real value as
high as $500.
X BEJIABKABLE PAIKTING.
The painting is a remarkable one. It is
the representation of a scene in Pittsburg
politics in the campaign in which JlcClel
lan ran for President The artist has
painted upon the canvass a faithful picture
of the old office of the Post, at the corner of
Fifth avenue and "Wood street, where the
First National Bank building now stands.
Passing in review before it is a Democratic
'procession, which Blythe has car
icatured. The more distinct faces in
the line are intended to represent Jndge
Shaler, John Irwin and other prominent
(Pittsburgers long since dead. A notable
feature is a wagon in which are little girls
dressed in white. A sign on the wagon
reads "Soft Soap." The grand marshal
rides an old white crowbate of a horse,
which is in the act of backing into an awn
ing post. The marshal flourishes a whisky
bottle instead of a sword. An old fellow in
the rear is beating a drnm for dear life.
Blythe painted two faces in the upper
story windows of tne Post office. One he
intended tor Colonel James P. Barr, the
editor, and the other a printer's devil. A
bulletin board in front of the office reads:
"Latest News Little Mac is in consulta
tion with "Woodward."
ANOTHEB OF BLYTHE'S.
Another of Blythe's works was sold for
J45. It was an oil painting of "Old Pap
Beitler." It shows this pioneer Boniface of
the East Liberty valley stirriug up the fire
in his old-time hostelry. -He is stooping
over the great, old-fashioned cadaverous
fire grate raking up the red hot coals with a
long poker. His weather-beaten face is
shown to good advantage and is said to be
It appears that all old inhabitants who
remember "Pap" Beitler (and there are lew
left) delight to tell of his peculiarity to let
nobody stir the hotel fires but himself. The
artist caught him iu his most familiar atti
tude. The- picture is 12x18 inches. Beit
ler's Hotel was the popular stage coach tav
ern and road house in East Liberty in ye
olden time. It stood on Penn avenue,
where Liberty Hallnowstands. Many years
before the construction of the Pennsylvania
Railroad or street railways sleighing and
driving parties from Pittsburg always took
dinner and danced at Beitler's
COLLECTING BLTTHE'S "WOBKS.
Mr. Scott's auctioneer also put up three
paintings by Hetzel. Two were fruit pieces,
and brought $45 and $50 each.
Some persons expected to see a still more
famous painting by Blythe auctioned off,
they being under the impression that Mr.
Scott was the owner of it. It is entitled,
"An Evening at Homewood." It is a very
large piece, worth probably $500. It repre
sents Judge "Win. Wilkins, Mr. John Scott,
Andrew Carnegie and some other well
known citizens of Pittsburg during war
times as members of a card party gathered
around a table in the mansion of Judge
"Wilkins at Homewood. Judge Wilkins is
familiar in the country's history as Secre
tary of "War and United States Minister to
BuKsia, Congressman and jurist. His
father, John "Wilkins, was burgess of Pitts
burg just 100 years ago.
Mr. Scott, however, did not own this
painting. It is said that Andrew Carnegie
bought it several years ago, and that it is
sow in Mrs. Thomas Carnegie's home at
Homewood. There is now in progress a
collection of all Blythe's works, with a
view to a grand exhibition some day.
Bayers secured bargains in many other
things that were sold at the Scott mansion.
For instance, a new piano, worth $450, was
knocked down at $175.

the bitter enemy of the Pennsylvania Bail

The colored people's anti-prohibition mass
meeting was held last night in Lafayette
Hall. The meeting was called to order by
Ajax Jones. Thirty-one persons were pres
ent, including about half a dozen Prohi
bitionists. Fully one-third of the audience
was white. The President introduced as
the speaker "the Ciccra of the "West," the
Kev. B. C. Christy, of Indiana.
Mr. Christy said he did not believe in
drunkenness. He favored temperance, and
had never been drunk in his life. He did
not believe, however, in prohibition, and
upheld his position by reference to the Bible.
He mentioned Christ nsing wine, and main
tained that moral suasion was the method
by which to make man good, and not force.
During the progress of bis, speech he said
that there is no authority in the Scriptures
for prohibition. One ot tne prohibition
hearers exclaimed that there was no alcohol
mentioned in the Scriptures.
Mr. Christy replied that strong drink was
Broad-Ax Smith, who was present,
shouted: "Give us a passage 1"
The speaker quoted a passage in Deuter

than you are!"

Mr. Christy I guess it's no disgrace to

Mr. Christy said that the Prohibitionists
were the last people to give a fair hearing
to any one.
Ajax Jones stepped forward and re
quested the Prohibitionists to wait until the
speaker was through; then they could throw
down the gauntlet and enter the arena.
The speaker continued, stating that John
"Wesley considered it no harm to go to a
tavern and drink his mug of beer or mug of
Mr. Bryce exclaimed: "Give us the docu
ments for that?"
Mr. Christy retorted: "You wouldn't be

are the leaders of the Prohibition party?
He said thevwere rundown disgruntled,
disappointed men of every political party,
with the exception of a lew local men. In J
the category be placed St. John, .Neil .Dow,

A T0DNG SUICIDE.
Jacob Brnbaeli, of Allecheny, Sends a Bul
let Throneu His Heart Despondency
Was the Canse.
Jacob Brubach, aged 21 years, son of
David Brubach, a blacksmith on North
avenue, Allegheny, committed suicide
about 6 o'clock last evening at his home, 72
Bast street, by sending a bullet through his
heart. He and his brother had been
working at their father's shop nil
day, but young Brubach went
home early. His 12-year-old sister was in
the house when he arrived and says he went
into the parlor to write a letter. A few
minutes later she heard a pistol shot and
ran into the room, where she saw her brother
lying on the sofa with blood streaming from
a wound in the left breast.
The little girl ran to her father's shop and
told of the shooting. They promptly sum
moned Br. P. "W. Heron, but his services
were not needed, as the bullet pierced the
heart and death was instantaneous.
Lying at the side of the young suicide
was the revolver and tta unfinished letter.
He had evidently began writing to explain
the cause of his action, but fearing that he
would be interrupted before he could carry
out his intention left the note
unfinished. The letter and the
revolver were taken in charge
by the doctor who, at the request of the
family, refused to make known the con
tents of the missive. The suicide was care
fully planned, for the young man opened
his shirt and placed the muzzle of the re
volver, a 32-caliber, directly over his heart.
The only cause assigned by the members
of the family is despondency. He had been
greatly attached to a young lady, Miss
Annie Both, and secured a position forher at
the home of his uncle, Judge Gripp. He
visited her regularly, and it is said gave her
his earnings to save for him. They had
planned a trip to Cleveland to visit the
girl's parents, when he received a letter
stating that she had gone alone, and that
their relations must cease.
It was reported that they were engaged to
be married, but a brother of the deceased
denied that they contemplated marriage.
The house where the suicide was com
mitted is directly opposite the home of Mrs.
Landenslager, who ended her existence the
other day by jumping from a third-story

HOW 10,000 GLOBES A DAI ABB NOW DAD
A glass manufacturing establishment,
known as the East Pittsburg Glass Com
pany, is a new acquisition to the number of
Pittsburg industrial concerns. The glass'
company concluded negotiations with the
East Pittsburg Improveme'nt Company yes
terday for the purchase of aboftt two acres
of ground in "Wilmerding, and the building
of the plant will be almost Immediately
The glassware manufactured at the new
establishment will be entirely confined to
such articles as are used in the putting up
of electric lights, incandescent lamps and
arc light plants, electric light globes, shades
and similar electrical appliances made of
glass will be made there. '
There is at present only one glass factory
manufacturing those articles in the country.
That is tne Corning Glass Company, at
Corning, N. Y. This branch of the latter
concern was called into existence by the.
Edison Electric Company, and until the
Westinghouse Electric Company became
THE EDISON'S COMPETITOE,
the latter was the largest customer the
Corning Glass Company had. The "Westing
house people, however, do now a business
which necessitates a supply of 10,000 glass
globes for incandescent lights each day,
which the company has to buy and pay a
profit on. It is chiefly for the purpose of
saving the expense of purchasing the lamps
that the new glass company will be started
up. The gentleman at the" head of the East
Pittsburg Glass Company is Mr. A. L.
Reineman, who was formerly Superintend
ent of the lamp department in the "West
inghouse Electric Company. It is, how
ever, understood that Mr. WestinghouFe is
interested in the new glass company and
lends it his financial backing.
A gentleman who is interested in the new
concern stated as follows to a Dispatch
reporter regarding the proposed manufac
ture of glass globes, etc, yesterday:
HOW THEY LOOK UPON IT.
"The great reason why the manufacture
of such articles should be carried on in
"Wilmerding is principally on account of
the advantages the East Pittsburg Improve
ment Company ofier in the way of natural
gas. The use of that fuel for making elec
tric light globes is very important. It
produces a better article, on account of the
absence of sulphur in natural gat, and inas
much as "Wilmerding is only about six miles
from Murrysville, the gas can be easily had.
"The Corning people have so far had a
monopoly ot electric glassware manufactur
ing in this country, but when the East
Pittsburg Company gets in operation I
think it will be a strong competitor on ac
count of superior facilities."
The company will soon commence to build
a ten-pot furnace, and from 200 to 300 men
will find employmont at the place. ' The
erection of the plant will commence next
week, and the operation of the furnaces will
start next fall.

as it is too hot for tbe birds to be in con
dition as an edible."
Dave lauber. caterer, said: "I am
against all shooting of game fowls in tbe
spring; especially the duck, which is much
better eating in the fall. When a water
fowl is killed in the spring there is a
"fishy" taste to it which is very obnoxious
and unpalatable. We do not nave a great
demand (or game here, but should such a
call be made tor a big dinner or a swell
supper, our most practical plan and surest
point of securing it is Chicago, where all
manner of wild game is sold the year round.
"The refrigerator men seem to 'stand in
with the Illinois officials, as they are never
molested by the minions of the law for
openly violating the mandates. They re
ceive in large quantities the game from the
Northwest, where there are no restrictive
measures relating to the shooting of game.
"Brook trout is sold in and out of season,
but not to a very great extent during the
illegal period." ,

in a few days; but the hotel will not be
formally opened until June 22.

THE GAS GOT TOO MUCH HEAD.
A Woman Burned While Teaching; Another
to Light Natural Gas.
About 7 o'clock last evening Mrs. C. S.
Straub, whose residence is at the corner of
Liberty and Bural avenues, was giving a
servant girl instructions as to tbe manner of
lighting natural gas. They seem to have
gone wrong at some pointin the programme,
tor there was a violent explosion that
wrecked the range and Mrs. Straub was
severely burned on various parts of her
body, not necessarily fatal, however.

decided on a place a few miles up tbe Mo

the proper kind. They are now thinking
of locating near Greensburg.

Some beautiful new styles of pianos just
received at H. Kleber & Bro.'s. Among
them that wonderful and unique wood, the
tortoise shell walnut Conover upright grand
piano. Also some fine Steinway uprights

of the pianos are bought at Klebers', as
people want something extra good and fine
for their money. The Messrs. Kleber &
Bro. have also just received a Splendid lot
of popular opera pianos and Emerson
pianos and the famous Bnrdette organs, and

Envious, and No Wonder. '
It took us just five years to attain the
prominence we have reached fn th'e eyes of
tbe Pittsburg public. Our rivals we don't
recognize them as competitors blow hard r
and long of the big bargains they show in
men's suits, and since we started advertising
our $10 suits they follow like sheep in our
footsteps. It's a clear cose of jealousy.
We've proved our genuine worth to one and
all, and now that it's conceding the P. O. C.
C. name "the lowest prices forfineclothin?,"
we mean to hold on tight and retain the grip
we purchased only after using a liberal sup
ply of pure American grit and down-right
hard work. Come and see the four big bar
gains we show to-day. No. 1 is men's suits,
at ?10, sold elsewhere at 518; No. 2 is nobby'
children's suits at $2 and $3; No. 3 is men's
stylish pants at $2 SO, and No 4 is a big
thing in derhys for men at $100 in five new
shades. P. C. C. C, cor. Grant and Dia

It would appear that the producers of pe

although field news is quite bearish of late,
as reported, if by no means gives fall de
tails oj what is going on, Por instance,
what does the world know about the opera

within sight of this city? And yet derricks
are getting thick, and can be seen from
every eleTOtioa of consequence in that sec
tion. Almost all the land In these town

And they are getting good wells there.
The Aiken is said to be large, and the
Oliver, on Moon run, is known to De good.
Grease has been found in the well on tbe
James Moore farm, a mile or so this side of
Montour run. but the operators seem dis
posed to keep the thing as quiet as possible.
The Schmid well, nearer the run, bored
some years ago, is known to contain oil, but
the lessees seem to be in no hurry to realize.
Since its boring much industry has been
exhibited in securing leases. There is a
new rig built on the Pine Hollow road back
of McKee's Bocks, and the roads through

heavy teams that transport pipe and other
The drillers on the well on the Arbuckles
farm, between Cbartiers station, on tbe
Pittsburjrand Lake Erie Hallway, and the
Stcubenville pike, met wjth a mishap a day
or two since, striking a fissure at the depth
of 900 feet, which has made the hole crooked.
They.have since been doing some heavy
shooting, in hopes to find renewed solidity;
but, so far, to no purpose. At first25 pounds
of dynamite were used, and then shot after
shot with pure glycerine was tried, until 125
quarts were used, and now it is thought the
work must begin de novo in another place.
The business promises to demoralize farm
ing as badly as the laying ont of a new town
does when it gives fanners the lot-selling
fever. A good many farmers cannot wait
slow growth of crops for revenue when they
can make $5 a day hauling well supplies.
Let Us Have our Attention.
We are now opening out for inspection a
large lot of new pianos of the favorite and
well-known makes, Decker Bros., Fischer,

with them have built up a trade that far

iness in this community. If you will call
in and examine them you will be pleased
with the workmanship and improvements
in the case and action not found in some
other pianos. These makers have the capi
tal and experience, and never fail to add an
improvement that will beautify the case,
strengthen the durability or purify the tone.

our new goods we have an immense lot of
