Immense Knmbers of Quail in West
, .era Pennsylvania.
PECULIAR HABITS OP THE BIRD.
Becoming Educated to Its Perilous Inriroa
ments. THE T10HCS OP THE POT HUKTEE
imui-xxs roa ins dispxtch.j
The thousands of sportsmen who read
The DisrATCH every day, will learn with
pleasure that the prospect for plenty of
game next season in Northwestern Pennsyl
vania are better than for many years past
It may be said without the least exaggera
tion that there ore more quail this spring
in Lawrence, Bearer and Mercer counties
than have ever been observed in April and
Hay before. All along the Beaver river and
its tributaries large flocks haTe been reported
on nearly every farm, and oDe can scarcely
take a drive in the country in the morning
or evening without seeing two or more
coveys along the road. As the nesting season
usually begins about May 1, the quail will
now be found in pairs scattered about the
farms, and the merry notes of the male bird
"Bob TVhite. Bob White" will be heard
every day from now till the latter part of
August, when the cool loggy nights will
revent any further increase of quail popu
ition, and Bob will abandon his favorite
perch, and cease his whistling till the
springtime comes again.
During favorable seasons three broods are
occasionally raised by one pair of quail,
and as from 18 to 20 young are usually
brought forth from each nest, it will be seen
that there are good reasons for predicting an
enormous supply of birds for the coming
"While it is too shamefully true that the
xnany unhung pot hunters, who shoot out of
season, will persist in knocking poor Bob off
bis perch with a charge of No. 4 shot fired
from an old smoothbore or flintlock, still it
will not be beyond reasonable probability
to estimate the number of young quail that
will be brought out between this and the
middle of August, in the three counties,
named, even if it does appear like the prov
erbial folly of "counting chickens betore
they are hatched." From recent
observations made while traveling
through Mercer, Butler and Lawrence
counties. X feel safe in computing
the number of old birds in the district at 90
to the square mile. This would give a total '
ofj.51.500in the L850 square miles in the
three counties. .Estimating that these
151,500 old birds will increase the total
snmberof quail in the district fourfold by
next September, we would have a total at
that Ume of 600,000 quail in the three
counties, as these figures allow for erery
possible diminution through the various
causes that combine to deciminate the
quail population. It can easily be seen
from these figures what a plentiful supply
of these fine game birds would exist always,
If the law against hunting out of season was
enforced and sportsmen would take meas
ures to exterminate the hawks, owls and
weasels, which, next to the pot-hunters, are
the most destructive enemies that Bob
White has to contend against.
' EDUCATED QUAH
Of late years sportsmen have noticed that
the quail is becoming more wary and cun
ning than formerly, and the wonderful sa
gacity they frequently manifest in their ef
forts to Avoid the dog and gun, indicates a
rapid development in their instinct of self
preservation, which appears to be a clear
case of evolution resulting from their pe
culiarly dangerous environment. This bird
education, as it may with propriety be called,
makes it necessary for the sportsman to
.possess both skill and judgment, and have
the best trained and most experienced of
dogs, in order to bag his came. "When a
flock of quail that nave been repeatedly
shot at are flushed in a stubble field or corn
field, they get up with a rush and whir of
-wings that will "rattle" anyone but an ex
perienced shooter, and go off to some dense
thicket like a flash. In fact so fast do they
o that I have heard shooters, after firing
oth barrels at a vanishing bird without
touching a feather, declare that it was a
contest of speed between shot and bird, with
the oddsfin favor of the latter.
Once in the thicket, the quail are almost
perfectly safe from the gun, as they lie low
and seem to have the power to withhold
their scent so that the dogs cannot find
them. In1 such places there is no use hunt
ing them with a choke-bore gun, as when
flushed they are out of sight before any
thing like an accurate aim can be taken.
The method employed by the pot-hunter is
to load up his rusty old muzzle-loader with
a handful of shot or slugs sometimes he
prefers gravel and sneak silently along
some rail fence till he finds the whole flock
huddled together under a clump of briers,
if the day be bright, or if it be raining,
gathered under a log or pile of brush for
shelter. In this position the unhung villain
finds the whole flock in a suitable way to
insure him a dinner at one fell shot
Quickly the old fusee is raised and sighted
C-l-angl and when the smoke and flying
.. pieces of an old weekly paper, used for
wadding, clears away, one-halt the birds, or
perhaps the whole flock, flutter in their
death agony on the ground, and their cow
ardly murderer rushes forward to claim his"
No sportsman will ever be guilty of shoot
ing quail on the ground when the whole
flock is huddled together. Such conduct
would ill become a man or boy who knows
how to use the gun, and takes pride in kill
ing his birds on the wing.
The writer, who has hunted qnail regu
larly for 12 years, was once temped to kill a
number of quail on the ground, but under
what might be called extenuating circum
stances. I was out with a man whom we
shall call "Mack," who was always boast
ing of his prowess with the gun, and was
nerer so well pleased as when he was kill
ing all the birds and his partner none.
"Mack" was using a cylinder bore that
would have covered S target 8x10 feet at 15
yards, and wnen a bird got up and went
north he had only tp point the old cylinder
bore in the same direction and fire quickly,
and the bird was sure to fall. I was using
a 12-gauge Ithaca gun, full choked, and one
of the closest and hardest hitting guns I
have ever handled, and of course with such
a gun I had no show shooting alongside of
"Mack," who knocked down every bird be
fore it got fairly started on the wing.
I managed, however, to shred a few birds
at 40 yards that he missed at 20, but having
only three to his 12, 1 found his boasting
quite intolerable, and took to the right ot a
cornfield toward a patch of timber, intend
ing to hunt awhile by myself. Along a
fence my dog made three points in succes
sion and I made one double and two sin
gles, making me only five birds behind
"Mack," who seemed to have lost all his
luck at finding birds after I left hiatal
. continued on down to the edge of the tim
, ber, when, just as I got within 30 yards of
the fence, a covey of about 30 birds came
running out from a corn shock. I per
ceived a chance to get even on "Mack.
and before the birds got into the
thicket my Tight barrel was discharged
into their midst, and the result was nine
birds slaughtered. I was four ahead of
Mack, and once in the thicket, I sent four
loads into the root of a dead oak, the re
p'rts of which brought my boasting partner
down to the edge of the woods to tee what
was np. Coming out to the fence, I pre
tended to be arranging my cartridge belt,
and in order to take off my coat, I took out
xny game 16 quail and laid them on the
grass, much to the disgust ot the boastful
"Mack," who xealiied that I was ahead,
and said no more that day about his prowess
'as a quail shooter.
Besides an .immense number of quail.
i& there will be 'plenty of rabbits and wood-

JudgiEwiko yesterday refused to grant a
charter to the County Democracy on the
grounds that the application was too indefinite.
He said: "The first section gives the name of
the proposed corporation, the second gives the
purpose of maintaining a club for social en
joyment,' and the third gives Pittsburg as the
place oi business. This Is entirely too in
definite and I am unable to make the certifi
cate as required by the act of Assembly, au
thorizing the granting of a charter, without
any further Information. For all that appears
it may be for a social gambling club, or a mere
drinking club, or any of the many purposes for
which a charter cannot be granted."

THE BUILDING. TBAJJI FL0UEISH1NG
There was no striking change in the busi
ness situation last weeE, except a further
depression in iron cansed by the cut of the
Thomas Company. Stocks Were generally
weak and dull, the majority of the list clos
ing at a decline from, the opening prices.
Petroleum was weak and feverish, but
closed steady, with indications of an im
provement. Bules for trading in futures
"were presented and discussed, and will
probably be adopted. Heal estate was
active, a number oi Important tales being
consummated. Money was a trifle tighter,
but the supply was sufficient for all require
meats. Tbo Clearing House report sbowed a
large gain over the corresponding week of last
year. Business in all lines of merchandise was
active at full prices.
Sixty-five building permits were taken out
last week, chiefly for dwellings in the outer
wards and suburbs, the total cost being esti
mated at $176,235. The largest was by tho
Bellefield Presbyterian Church Association for
a stone edifice S0x77, to cost 43,000.
The sale of the Foster property. Fifth ave
nue,upon which The Dispatch's main adver
tising office stands, was yesterday effected, Mr.
J. A. Emery, representing the heirs and par
ties in interest, buying it in at 140,000, The
dimensions are 30x210 feet, running back to
Money Is moving. One of the largest mort
gages for a long time was placed yesterday. It
was for 200,000 on manufacturing property,
presumably on the Southslde, and the rate was
5 per cent and State tax. It was placed by a
Pittsburg man and was Pittsburg money. Tbe
same gentleman had an application yesterday
for $25,000 on an East End residence. The deal
will probably be closed up to-morrow. Dur
ing the week 213 mortgages were entered of
record, representlng$812,86S. The three largest
were for 150 000, $180,000 and $15,000, the rest
ranging from $5,000 to $9,000 each.
During last week 270 deeds for real estate
were filed at the County Recorder's office, rep
resenting a valuation of $782,623. There is no
let-up in the demand for lands and houses.
The fact that Wilkinsburg is to have an
electric road before the snow flies, is a suf
ficient reason for the great demand for property
in that vicinity. It is understood that the road
is to be run as a feeder to the Fifth avenue
cable line. This will insure rapid transit to a
large population living at an inconvenient
distance from the Pennsylvania Railroad, and
may result in a cut in rates, which are consid
ered entirely too high.
Mr. H.M. Byllshy, Vice President of the
Westinghouse Electric Company, left the city
last evening and will sail for Europe on
Wednesday next, presumably to close up the
long meditated deal for consolidating compet
ing electric companies in England and on the
continent. Big things are expected within 80
days in the electric business.
The new Cross-Town Passenger Railway, the
ordinance for which was np in Allegheny Coun
cils Friday evening means a new electric road

In existence, say about Jackson street. It is
backed by ample capital. "
The Pittsburg, Allegheny and Manchester
Passenger Railway will, within a very few
days, be reorganized on a basis of new capital,
new road, probably electric etc This fact.
"known to a few, .has no doubt been at the bot
tom ot the recent active demand for that stock.
But it was considered too good to let go.
Local Stocks Doll nnd Weak, but With
Sign of Improvement.
Local stocks were with one or two exceptions
dull and weak- yesterday. Philadelphia Gas
lost ground on continued liquidation by holders
of small lots. Tbe other gassers were un
changed. Electric was flrmer,sllghtly higher and
inactive. Tractions were quiet and neglected.
The miners were lifeless and lower. La Norla
on reports that the mill was not giving satisfac
Tbe rest of the list was quiet and featureless.
There was a good demand for bank stocks and
other first-class securities. The outlook for
this week Is for a more active market if not
higher prices. Electric will probably move up,
and if pending suits are decided favorably. It
will doubtless experience a boom. Bids, offers

NkwYokk, May 11. There was no change
in tbe stock market this moraingfromlts usual
dullness, though a few features wero devel
oped, and after the fractional decline from the
bear hammerings, covering of shorts with a
little long buying rallied the list, and tbe final
changes are generally in the direction of high

nothing at the opening and the professional
element again had full control, and being bear
ishly Inclined, first prices were generally
slightly lower than last evening's figures, and

decline of per cent to 85J occurring in the
first half hour. The impression upon Atchison
was less marked, and a little buying soon
started tbo list up again and most stocks were
carried above first prices on the rebound. More
animation was shown on tbe upward move

only Richmond and West Point besides the two
stocks mentioned displayed any activity what
