GREAT EQUITY SUIT,
Ex-Congressman Ban Against
the Plate Glass Deal.
HE ALLEGES CONSPIRACY
To Build and Sell tlie Ford City
Works and Mate $900,000.
A SINGLE MINORITY MAK'S EICK
Against the Profitable Fool P ittsburg Has
EB SUES IN CKCliE SAM'S ZBIBDfiAL
A Dispatch reporter has been cognizant
for some weeks of the fact tbat existing rip
ples of dissatisfactian were agitating the
placidity of the Pittsburg Plate Glass Com
pany's inside workings.
These ripples took a turbulent turn yes
terday, when a bill in equity was filed In
the United States District Court (as the'
plaintiff now resides in the far "West) by
Sol Schoyer, Jr., with ex-Congressman
Samuel F. Barr, iormerlv of Harrisburg,for
himself and all others who wish to lawfully
join therein, as plaintiffs, acainst the Plate
Glass Company, baring for its President
Edward Ford; Artemus Pitcairn, Vice
President; Emory L. Ford, Secretary, and
John Pitcairn, Jr., all as defendants.
The bill is quite lengthy, containing 14
clauses, which explicitly say the defendants
err as against the Pittsburg Plate Glass
Company (or rather its minority of stock
holders) in carrying on business in the
manner they have since the organization of
the first company at Creighton, some four
or five years ago. The plaintiff, therefore,
prays the Court to come in and
EESTEAIN THE MESSES. FORD
et al from reaping profits not due them in
their actions toward the "small fish" of the
stockholders. In substance it is alleged
about as follows:
J. B. Ford & Sons were the promoters
and organizers of the first Pittsburg Plate
Glass Company at Creighton, which cost
$590,000, having a monthly production of
100,000 square feet. The marked prosperity
following the building of No. 1 plant, tbe
facilities being exceptionally well adapted
for the successlul manufacture of plate
glass better by far than those of any other
company in the United States induced and
impelled the proprietors to branch out, and
propose to the stockholders that other works
At the first meeting to consider it there
were a few dissenting rotes, among which
w?s that of the defendant, Mr. Barr. How
ever, the second mill was built atTarentum,
hr!f a mile above the first one, at a cost of
5700,000, with a monthly production oi 140,
000 square feet.
EeadersofTHE Disr-ATCH will remem
ber how, recently, the majority stockholders
of the company voted to absorb the third
"works, at Ford City, with a capacity of
200,000 feet per month, at a cost of $1,968,
750. In this connection now 'the plaintiff
charges that this is "an exorbitant and
outraeeous price," which the stockholders
may be subjected to pay, and that is the
point of argument. Mr. Barr, the peti
ioner, expects to prove that Edward Ford,
Artemus Pitcairn, Emory Ford and John
Pitcairn, Jr., "entered into a conspiracy to
bnild a larger plate glass works than the
mill No. 1, which plant they will compel
the Pittsburg company to purchase, at
enormous figures, or this (the defendants')
own price, in order to prevent dangerous
and menacing competition."
WHO BOLD THE BONANZA.
The stock is divided up so as to give the
defendants a controling interest, the Fords',
father and sons, having alone 3,350 shares;
John Pitcairn, 1,000; John Scott, deceased,
1,000; Albert E. Hughes, 100; J. H. Sheilds,
250; William Nelson, 200, and Charles W.
Batehelor 100. Mr. Barr has about 200.
It is claimed by him that the parties to the
scheme, being a majority, would of course
Tote for the purchase oi the new mill at
Pord City which is now partially being
operated and'a repetition ot the Tarentum
scheme will have have, been perfected."
J. B. Ford & Co. have proposed to sell
these works to the Pittsburg Plate Glass
Company lor $750,000 first mortgage bonds,
and the same amount in capital stock at
par valne, with the bonds to mature in three,
four, and five years at 6 per cent The
oratnr, in his petition, also expects to prove
that the Ford works won't cost over $1,-
30,000, altbongh be says the people in
question will not give any inlormation as to
the estimate or cost ol them. As the actual
premium on tbe stock commands $622 per
Fharc, this shows that tbe actual cost will
be $1,968,750, instead of $1,500,000, as is said
by the deiendant
All these actions Hr. Barr sets forth as
being a direct threat and menace to compel
the minority of stockholders to accede to
the demands ot the syndicate; and of
course the favorable "vote was assured by J.
B. Ford etaL "The capital stock," it is
alleged, "is to be increased $2,750,000,
ONLY A SCHEME
To wipe ont tbe minoritr holdings and
compel them to accept any price the major
ity may offer tor their stock." In other
words, it is another case of "big fish eating
up the little ones."
By the consummation of the deal at the
proposed gnres,the syndicate would, ac
cording to the allegations, profit ovei 900,
000, and the point which the plaintiff, ilr.
Barr, wants to score is that tbe Court be
asked that they be made to accept the actual
cost price of the mill, with such reasonable
'profit as the Court may allow to the con
structors. Also that they be asked to ac
count for all the money alleged to have been
received by them in payment for works No.
2, at Tarentum.
The petition proper is followed by a full
statement of the property, real and personal,
at Ford City, which was offered vo the Pitts
burg Plate Glass Companv. As a compari
son, the Howard Glass Works, now in the
course of construction, is cited, and it will
cost $500,000, with a production of 100,000
square leet per month. As each square loot
ot glass requires au invested capital in works
ot $5; No. 1, No. 2 of the Pittsburg Plate
Glass Company and the Howard Works
show this proportion exactly. "How, then,"
it is asked, "can the Ford City Works dif
fer materially from this basis? If it does
not difler, then the Ford City Works did
not cost over $1,000,000, and tbe contractor's
estimate ol $647,000 is very nearly correct."
This is given weight by the following com
parative figures: The cost otilill No. 1 was
$500,000; monthly production, 100,000 square
feet. No. 2. $700,000; production, 140,000
feet Ford City, $1,968,750, with only 200,
000 feet production, while tbe Howard cost
$500,000 and has a production ol 100,000.
STOCKHOLDEBS CEITIdSE HIM.
A number ol the stockholders were seen
bv a Dispatch local writer, and their
opinions regarding the matter were both
for and against.
S. Boyd, the Wooa street art dealer, is a
stockholder. Hesaid: "I know all about
the matter, from "beginning to end, and I
think Hr. Barr, although a Tezy smart man
otherwise, is foolish in attempting to ac
complish that end in tbe Court. He is only
standing in his own light. I cannot but see
that all of us are profited, just as we were
when No. 1 and Tarentum consolidated.
J. B. Ford talked the matter over with me
some time ago, and, as was proven before
Tarentum mill was built, the supply
of glass is inadequate to supply the de
mand. The plan was eminently successful
last year, and I am in 'avor of enlarging the
interests in any way which will enhance
onr property or increase the value of the
stock. lam sorry I have'nt more of it.
We held several meetings in regard to the
proposed plan, and tbe minority were
against it until tbe last meeting held at the
Monongahelii House, when the majority of
the minority favored it"
E. H. Myers, the Liberty street pork
packer, another stockholder, explained at
length his view of the matter, and, although
Javoring the consolidation to a great extent,
didn't think the profits from both stock
dividends, and in excess of the actual cost
of the plant, should go to the big holders of
stock. "However," said he, "I do not care
to say anything at all, for fear that I may
be mistaken in mv views. I would suggest
you talk to Mr. H. P. Dilworth."
This latter gentleman was seen by The
Dispatch representative; but he would
not consent to an interview.
A CONSEBVAIIVE VIEW.
Max Schamberg, although not a very ex
tensive stockholder, said: "I rather sanc
tioned Mr. Barr's views at first; but the
minority was so overwhelmed that there
was nothing to do but to submit to deleat
philosophically. la the abstract be was
right; but, Irom a business point of view,
the practicability ot his planswas defective.
The Messrs. Ford and Pitcairn demon
strated their sincerity when, at the last
meeting, they said: 'Gentlemen, we are in a
delicate position; we leave it entirely to the
vote of the minority.' I am altogether sat
isfied with the result, as it surely will have
a good effect on the stock. To-day a friend
ot mine ofiered $180 per share for some; but
could not secure it,"
Other stockholders were approached, but
would not talk, and now tbe case as it
stands will be awaited with interest, as it is,
to an extent, without parallel.
Beside Sal. Schover. Jr.. S. B. Schover
and W. W. Errett appear tor the plaintiffs.
The Messrs. Ford, who reside at Tarentum,
could not be seen last evpning alter the
above information was gleaned.
A PROFITABLE DRAWING.
Private Boxes for tbe Slay Festival Allotrd
Snbucribcrs How It Was Done S7.400
One hundred private boxes have been ar
ranged in the Exposition building for the
May Musical Festival. These are sold for
the season at $100 each. Yesterday 74 of
them were allotted to purchasers. This was
accomplished by means of a drawing in the
office of the Exposition Society. The
names of the 74 purchasers were
written on small slips of cardboard,
which were placed in a bat and
shuffled well. Jn another bat were put 74
other cards, each containing a number.
Messrs. Henry Holdship and C. W. Wat
tles were chosen to conduct the drawing.
Each gentleman took charge of a hat. One
drew out a name as the other picked np a
number card at random, and announced the
figures. J. A. Dalzell was the first name
that came out of the hat, and 60 was the
number of the first box drawn. It was as
signed Mr. Dalzell. In this way the fol
lowing boxes were allotted to the persons
named, the smaller numbers being the best

A Knight Who Claims to Have Evidence to

"The half has never been told" regarding
the importation of the foreign window glass
blowers; and the repeated remarks of labor
leaders, who are guarded in the information
they give out, that "something will drop
soon," are very significant? A DISPATCH
reporter was yesterday informed of a por
tion of the news regarding the second half of
the importation that' soon will be
brought out The persons-who brought the
men over are, it is averred, to be punished
according to the penalty provided in the
contract labor law, and some of the witnesses
against them are to. be brought here from
across the ocean. The, person, or organiza

The Knights of Labor, "asan organization,
are not investigating the matter; but a prom
inent member ot the order, who, since the
Minneapolis 'General Assembly, and even
as far back as the Richmond Convention,
has been in the anti-Powderly class, is try
ing to work up evidence against Messrs.
Campbell, President of the Window Glass
Workers' Association, find James Cham
bers, of Chambers & McKee.'
ONLY AS AN INDITIDUAI..
In speaking of the matter yesterday be
said he was securing evidence; but that it
was merely personal with bim, and that no
one had employed him to do it. He paid
bis own traveling expenses, he said, while
in Philadelphia and Washington collecting
evidence. The gentleman did not want his
name psed just yet, but said!
"There is no doubt in my mind bnt that
the foreign window glass blowers that ar
rived here recently were imported, and in
direct violation of the contract labor law. I
have investigated the matter thoroughly,and
am prepared to submit my testimony when
the trial comes up. I have been to Phila
delphia, and I was up at Jeannette for
several days. The imported men talked
very freely to me, because they did not
know who I was.
"I am prepared to explain the cause of
the importation. The statements made
within the past few weetcs. that there are
not enough window glass blowers in this
country, is not correct, and I can prove
it. A letter was received here " recently
from an English blower, stating that he had
been invited to cross the water to secure a
job. His reply was: 'If I can obtain work
and maintain my position as a union man,
I wUl come.'
AFRAID OP THE CONDITIONS.
'The persons who invited him 'to come
did not want him under such 'a condition,
and took someone else in his place. The
man has made an amdavu to tbe statement,
and it is now on its way to this country.
When the trial occurs he will likely be
produced in person to'give his testimony.
"I believe that the principals in this case
can be convicted of a violation of the law,
from the evidence I have gathered; but I
will not make it public noW. The penalty
is a fine of 51,000 lor each person imported
under contract, and the Captain of the ship
that brought them over will be compelled to
take them all back, free of 'charge.
"If the Window Glass Workers' Associ
ation does not accept the proposition of tbe
Central"Trades Council 'lor a private in
vestigation, it is an admission of their
guilt I. investigation is private, there
will be no whitewashing, and the proceed
ings will be published just the same as if
the investigation were public. It is said
they will not submit to a private investiga
tion. If they do not, the investigation will
be public enough."
President Campbell is expected home to
day. He has been on a Western tour among
the factories represented in the organiza
tion. A meeting of the Executive Board of
the Central Trades Council will be held on
Wednesday evening, to further consider the

but none occurred. Six men were arrested
on warrants that had been issued the
previous day. The men placed under
arrest are John E irly, Michael Lane, John
Cady, Conrad McCridden, Thomas Owens
and Edward Davis.
Lane gave tbe officers a sharp chase before
they succeeded in capturing bim, but when
they began firing their revolvers he decided
to stop and give himselt up.
Cady was standing near the steel works
yard and was heard to make the remark that
deputy sheriffs should be dumped into the

press an opinion on the subject saying that
if any law had been violated he believed
tbe matter should be 'thoroughly investi

A FOREIGN C0UKT
To Come and Bear tbe Charges Against
Master Workman Ross.
The pretention, or rather the seeming
persecution, of Master Workman Boss, of
D. A. 3, K. of L., will likely be carried
out to a finish, although there was enough
evidence produced at tho trial on Friday
night to vindicate him. This is one of the
most peculiar matters ever brongbt up for
trial in the district court of the Knights in
this section and for the first time in the his
tory of the order in this city a foreign court
will have to be brought here to try the case.
The District Court ol D. A. 3 is com
posed of Judge Homer L. McGaw, Judge
Advocate Joseph L. Evans and Clerk John
D. Hughes. The last two named are dis
qualified irom serving, as they are both
witnesses in the case.
At the meeting on Friday it was decided
to bring the Judges from the two adjoining
district assemblies to take their places, and
Mr. McGaw will be the presiding judge.
These districts are No. 8, composed of
Beaver Vallev, and .No. ll, wnicn emoraces
the local assemblies iu the Connelhville
coke region. The court will meet some time
next week, at which it isi expected there
will be some interesting developments.
Another investigation will likely follow
to ascertain the names of the persons who
made the matter public, for, according to
the rules of the order, not even a Knight of
Labor is supposed to know anything about
charges until alter a trial and conviction.
Mr. McGaw was seen last night, and
when the above wasmentioned to bim, said
as Presiding Jude"oi the court that would

nothing whatever to say on the subject

THE! WANT COMPETENT MEN.
Contractors Willing to For Union Prices for
The demands of the carpenters, the con
tractors say, must be considerably modified
before they are granted. Contractors are
willing to employ union men, but will not
agree to pay a man more than be earns
simply because he is a union man. They
also object to the rule about apprentices, and
the contractors who are unable to obtain the
number of competent men necessary are not
doing any work.
Unless the Carpenters' Union amend their
demands the employers propose to employ
whom they please, whether they are union
men or not. There are not many union car
penters idle at present, the principal trouble
in the building trades, being caused by the
stone masons and hod carriers.

P1TTSBDRG JACK PEPPERED.
Alleced Former Locnllto Killed la Montana
A special Irom Butte, Mont, says: At a
late hour Thursday night burglars attempted
to gain entrance to the house of H. A
Dacheuls, the family being absent in Eu
rope. One of the burglars, who is known as
"Pittsburg Jack," from the fact that he
came from a good Pittsburg family, was
shot by the watchman in charge, and died
The other burglar was arrested yesterday
morning. He was arraigned and pleaded
guilty. He was sentenced to ten years in
the Deer Lodge Penitentiary, and was
taken there yesterdav morning, being safe
within the walls by 5 o'clock, or less than
20 hours after his arrest It is probably the
quickest caseon record.
Inquiry at Central police headquarters
developed nothing which would lead to the
identification of the above person. Boger
O'Mara consulted bis "gallery" and crook's
pedigree manual, bnt to no purpose. Such
names are given toughs from tne fact that
when they are arrested they give a distant
city their place of re'sidence.

ciation. The dealers who will join the new associ
ation still refuse to handle the milk of the
Chartiers-Beed combination. Many of the
shippers who went into this association can
not now find anyone to take their milk.
The Chartiers Company are getting more
than they can handle, and about two times
each week throw hundreds of gallons of the
lacteal fluid into the Allegheny river or
give it away to the poor people who live in
the vicinity of the dumping ground. The
men who are in the new association say they
will giVe the others all the milk trust that
they bargained for.

AN INITL& TUMBLE."
A Kansas Frobibltionist Falls Down
Through the Platform,
HOT, LIKE TROTH, ,EISES AGAIN.
The First Outdoor Meeting in the Interest
of the Amendment
INTERRUPTED BI K0IBI SPECTATORS
The first local outdoor political amend
ment meeting ot the campaign proper, under
the auspices of the Twin City Amendment
Club of Pittsburgh was held last evening in
the haymarket'lot of the Allegheny .Dia
mond Square. The speakers stood upon a
coffee box while delivering their addresses,
and one of them, in giving, emphasis to
a statement with the aid of "his foot, broke
through tbe coffee box, whereat a cheer went
up from the spectators. The crowd who bad
gathered were apparently bot in too much
sympathy with the amendment movement,
as the most enthusiasm manifested was
when the man went through' the box.
The speakers were Prof. J. E. Dill, "the
thrilling orator and. elocutionist of Bur
dette, Kan.," and J. Howard Moore, "the
silver-tongued advocate" of Topeka. They
were introduced by Eev. T. J. Leak, pastor
of the North Avenue M. E. Church.
A SMALL ATTENDANCE.
The meeting was advertised for 8 o'clock,
aid a few minutes before, that time things
looked decidedly blue for the event With
the exception of Dr. Leak, who only intro
duced them, the speakers, two coal oil
torches and the aforementioned coffee box,
the square was empty. A novel way to
draw a crowd was tried by one of the gen
tlemen. He mounted the box,
and drawing from his coat pockets
a folding cornet, he played "Mv
Country, 'Tis of Thee." A number
of loungers about City Hall rushed over,
thinking it was another tree concert by one
of those Kickapoo Indian patent medicine
shows, where the doctSr with the long
ringlets pulls teeth and cuts hair without
After gathering about 175 men, women
and boys about him, Prof. Dill began
his talk. He called attention to
the fact tbat the chief brewer
of Lawrence, Douglass county, Kan.,
(who is now in jail serving a term for vio
lating the laws) declares Irom behind the
prison bars that "nrohibition does prShibit,
and very effectually." During an arraign
ment ofsaloon keepers, in which he said "a
man was engaged in the business only for
the filthy pelf," the box gave way, as above
THE SPEAKEE WAS PEECIPITATED
to the ground. In his descent he broke one
of the torches. Quickly regaining his feet,
and turning the platform on its end, he
mounted again, saying at the same time:
"Truth crushed to earth shall rise again."
This bronght out a cheer, and one individ
ual yelled: "What's the matter with
Judge White? Eah!" The speaker
proceeded, and almost every minute he
was interrupted by the citizen who
said: "I'm not going to lose my vote. Yon
never worked in this city. The laborers
here are not poorly paid, and do not want
any more protection. 'Babl" etc The
speaker related a dream, in which, he said,
he saw devils going into Kansas; when an
advocate or Judge White said: "That's a
good dream. Where did you get yourdream
When the speaker concluded by advisint:
every person to vote for the amendment, J.
Howard Moore delivered his address. He
was, also interrupted by the intoxi
cated individual, who by this time
wanted to make a speech irom
the box himself, and asked: "Do yon ever
drink?" The speaker asked, how many men
vould vote for a goblet of whisky, when the
citizen 'said: "You're afraid to challenge
my Vote thatwayl"
In addition it'is true that many strong,
bnt quite recently familiar, arguments lor
temperance were made by the two Kansas
the square every Saturday evening until

ANOTHER BLUFF FAD.
How ImpecnnionsDndes Wear GoodClotbes
There is nothing so humiliating to a $10-a-week
dude as to be compelled to wear
shelf clothing, and to allay all suspicion he
resorts to numerous sly tricks. One of the
latest capers nhich is being practiced upon
"an unsuspecting public" is that ot secur
ing from a merchant tailor a silk tab with
his name on it, which is placed in tbe back
of a ready-made coat, giving it a bona fide
appearance of being made to order.
A Dispatch reporter stood in a Smith
field street shop yesterday, when a spruce
yonng tellow leisurely sauntered in and
walked to the rear of the room. He awaited
nntil the proprietor approached, when he
Xanliliary asked bim for one of his coat tabs.
As the fellow had patronized the merchant
to some extent, he couldn't very well refuse
After be had retired' to the street the
tailor said: "This world is full of bluffs,

Pat Muskiel, of Pittsburg, a freight
brakeman on the Pittsburg, McKeesport
and Youghiogheny Bailroad, was killed by
a wreck at an early hour yesterday morning

MLLE. DE lUSSAN'S TRIUMPH.
Sho Scores an Exceptional Cou quest In the
The performance of the Boston Ideals last
night was simply a series of triumphs for
Mile. Zelie de Lussan, who appeared in
three operas, "The Bohemian Girl," "Car
men" and "The Daughter of the Eegi
ment" Mile, de Lussan, of course, ap
peared to most advantage as Carmen', but
her work in everything was, as usual,
sparkling with the brilliancy of her genius,
and her singing was spirited and in marked
contrast to that of the rest of the singers,
who appeared to be too tired to exert them
selves. Mr. Merten's must be excepted from this
criticism, as he sang the "Toreador" song
and "The Heart Bowed Down" with
strength ana artistic taste. Mr. Clark had
a sore throat tp excuse him.
At the close 'of the performancethe whole
audience remained tor several minutes and
cheered Mile, de Lussan to the echo..

Pattern Makers at Their Annual

THE EIGHT-HOUR SYSTEM OP WORK
A League Only Two Tears Old Spreading
and Growing Rapidly.
LABOR PROBLEM TO BE CONSIDERED
The second annual meeeting of the
Pattern Maker's League of North America
will be held in the Seventh Avenue Hotel
this week; beginning to-morrow morning.
About 25 delegates are expected, but last
meht none of them had arrived, though the
reception committee was at the hotel waiting
for them. The eastern delegates are sched
uled to arrive this morning.
Speaking about the association and the
coming meeting, President T. J. McGon
nell of this city, said lftst night:
There are only 6,000 pattern makers In the
country, and 1,000 of them belong to the organ
ization. In Pittsburg there are 150 pattern
men and 95 belong to the local assembly. At
present wo are trying to establish an associa
tion In Hamilton, Canada, and outside of this
place we are not represented In tbd Dominion.
We have associations in IS cities scattered oyer
the country, and we expect representatives
from all of them.
"WOBK. TO BE DOSE.
Tbe meeting will probably last, the greater
part of the week, and we intend to have a ban
quet Thursday evening. There are a, number
of things to be considered. The constitution Is
crude, was hastily constructed and needs to be
modified in some "particulars. AVe are thinking
of establishing a continent fund to work up
associations in new fields, strengthen weak,
bodies and to assist generally In keeping tbe
organ'-zatlon together. It is more than prob
able that we will appoint a paid organization.
The tools of pattern makers are very vain
able, and at present we have apian cf Insurance
to protect them from loss. This insurance
feature will be perfected further, and, in ad.
dltion, we will discus- the advisability of estab
lishing a beneficial feature in connection with
Another tbinj; we are anxions about is the
eight-hour system and tbe abolition of piece
work. These subjects will be considered. It
is the aim of the League to keep up the agita
tion for shorter hours of work, ana we prefer
to work by the day. The quality of work
turned ont Is better than by the piece.
We find, too, that when a man exerts himself
and makes some money at piece work that
when we work by the day the manufacturers
expect us to do as much as we do under the
piece plan. In the end we find we make less
money and work longer hours under this
system than by the day.
The question of limiting the number of ap
prentices will also come np. For myself 1
think that one to every six Journeymen ahould
be allowed and no more. As to strikes we are
very conservative, and have no desire to be
antagonistic or pugnacious unless there Is
grave necessity for it
At the session to-morrow morning, Presi
dent McGonnell will read his annual ad
dress. He states there are some points of
interest in his report, but he declined to
