& portentous murmur was heard in Com
mon Council yesterday afternoon as the
members listened to President Holliday
reading the resignation of "William Buhl
andt, member from the Twenty-sixth ivard,
one of the liquor dealers granted license
tinder condition that he resign from Coun
cils. The murmur broke into audible con
versation, the conversation gave way to
Mr. Binder jumped to his feet frith this
exclamation: "I more the resignation be
rejected. I understand it was handed in by
force. The people hare a right to choose
their own representatives, and sot one man!"
Mr. Steggert, of the Twenty-sixth ward,
seconded the motion.
The Chair The proper motion is to accept,
and then Council may adopt the motion or not.
Mr. Carnaban I do not like to vote on this
question until I see Mr. Ruhlandt. We might
do him an injury in refusing to accept.
The Chair I know that Mr. Ruhlandt don't
think he should remain In Council.
Mr. Duncan If we refuse the resignation it
only robs the ward of representation, as Mr.
Hublandt refuses to serve.
THE COUBT ALLUDED TO.
Mr. Carr Council should be the jndge of the
qualifications of its members and not the
judge of the Common Fleas Court. The action
of the Court wa3 a surprise to the people. No
man has a right to say to another, "You shall
sot represent the people on account of your
Mr. Steggert The people of the Twenty
Sixth ward had enough faith in Mr. Ruhlandt
to elect him to Council when he was in the
business he now follows. It is wrong to force
him to resign.
Mr. Carnahan The Court has no right to re
quire this resignation, bat the fact remains
that license was granted on that condition. If
we reject this resignation we may find Mr.
Ruhlandt's license revoked or he may be re
insert next year. We must look at this, as it
affects Mr. Ruhlandt's interests. I want to
know, though, if be desires us to accept, and I
will move that action on the resignation be
iVr. Magee I do not believe that the License
Court had the right to say to a man, "Your
neighbors elected you, but yon shall not repre
sent them and carry on the business you have
been in for years and which you ask the court
to allow you to continue." If being a member
of this Council disqualifies you or me or any
man from following any walk of life, then it is
time for all of us to get out of Council. I do
sot believe that it lays in the right of any man
to say to another, "You cannot remain in
Council." They might say it to a lawyer be
cause be practices before the Court, or to a
business man because he may have a case be
fore the Court It is not right;
IT IS 2TOT FADi
Ruhlandt has a right to resign, but in
'this case the resignation don't seem to be volun
tary. Mr. Ruhlandt is the oldest member in
, point pf .continuous service In this branch. I
don't believe that a man who has been returned
for nine consecutive years should be told to get
out. I understand Mr. Ruhlandt pledged him
self to resign, and his word is at stake. It
seems to me that if this Council accepts the
resignation it should do it with the plain state
ment that it thinks it wrong to make such a
condition in granting a license.
Mr. MacGonnigle I move to accept the res
ignation. I do this because I met Mr. Ruhlandt
on the street last week and he asked me to do
what I could to have his resignation accepted.
There is no question about Mr.Ruhlandt being
a good Councilman. I suppose Judge White
Joels that be gave license to so few men that
they would have all they could do to attend to
their saloon business.
Mr. Carnahan That's the information I
-wanted. Mr. Ruhlandt has said he wants to re
sign and we might injure him by refusing to
accept. If the people of the ward choose to
re-elect him and send him back again we will
then be the judges, and I don't see how we
could refuse his certificate.
Mr. Magee Mr. Ruhlandt asked me to vote
for his resignation, but I do not think any ac
tion should be taken, with a statement from
this Council that no power is given to any court
to direct a man elected to a seat here to resign.
I don't Believe the court did right when it said,
"Go out of the liquor business or go out of
Mr. Carr The court has no more right to re
voke the license of a Councilman than that of
any other citizen without a violation of the
Mr. Duncan I move we refer this matter to
a special committee to ascertain the facts in
the case. As far as Mr. Ruhlandt is concerned
I would like to accommodate him, but as far as
we are concerned we are interested m ascer
taining who are the judges of the qualifications
of our members.
Mr. Duncan's motion was adopted.
A POLITICAL sensation;
Mr. Ferguson offered the following:
Besolved, That the Chief of the Department of
Public Safety be and he Is Hereby requested to
report to Councils, at their next regular meeting,
bow many policemen, firemen and other employes
ot his department were employed doing political
work during the day of February 10, 1S89, and re
ceived full pay for that day from the city.
.Besolved, That the Chief of the Department of
Public Safety be and he Is hereby requested to

have In regard to an assessment being made upon
the employes of the police, fire and other depart
ments under the control and management of the
Department of Public bafety and which was paid
cut of their pay for the month of January.
Also, tbe amount of said assessment, and
whether or not Eaid fund was used for political
purposes at the last city election.
Mr. Ferguson accompanied these with two
resolutions relating to the Department of Pub
lic Works. When he offered them some of the
members who are usually interested in matters
of this kind were so engaged that the vote was.
taken and the resolutions adopted before they
were aware of what the fighting members from
the Seventeenth ward were up to.
PUBLIC PAEK PEOJECTS.
Mr. MacGonnigle offered a resolution for a
special committee on parks, to serve d unrig
the year, to consist of three Common and two
Select Councilmen, in conjunction with the
Presidents of both branches. This committee
is to have charge of all legislation in reference
to public parks and public squares. The reso
lution was adopted. Messrs. MacGonnigle.
Carnahan and Magee were appointed on behalf
of Common Council, and Messrs. Lambie and
Seating in Select.
Chief Bigelow. of the Department of Public
Works, presented a communication on the
park question, as follows:
1 wish to call attention to the largely growing
-nonulationofourcltv. and the desire on tbe nart
ot the citizens for public parks. Tbe business
center of tbe city is rapidly spreading out and
driving the downtown population Into closer
auarters, and the need of a public breathing place
Is very apparent, and I think this is the proper
time for the city to take action on this subject and
prepare for tbe laying out or public parks.
In tbeTwentv-second ward there are about 300
acres of beautiful park land belonging to tbe
bchenley estate, -which I think could be purchased
at a reasonable price, and tbe probabilities are
that part of the tract could be secured as a gift.
Therefore I would request that a Committee on
Parks be appointed, that proper action may
be taken on the matter. I would also suggest
that a representative man be appointed to visit
En gland to confer -with Mrs. Bchenley.
Your attention Is also called to that part or tbe
Allegheny wharf lying between tne Exposition
building and the Sixth street bridge. Dnrlugtlie
past weeK all tne debris nas oeen reinovea, ana
there seems to be a general desire on tbe part of
tbe public that this tract of land be set ask

titcu irom dumping privileges wm almost pay an

zens to donate trees and shruhberv and also an
offer from the Husky estate to erect a large foun
tain In the center of the park.
Iu view of tbe above I would ask that an ordi
nance be passed immediately making that part of
she wharf a pubUc park
It was referred to the Committee on Parks.
Ordinances were introduced setting aside the
ground around the Hlland reservoir as
"Hiland Park," and setting aside the Alle
gheny wharf from Third street to Sixth street
as "Block House Park." These were referred.
SPOILING A PABK SITE.
Mr. Magce offered a resolution extending the
time of completing the Second Avenue Passen
ger Railway to Market street to one year from
July 1. Passed.
Mr. Bigham, from the Committee on Public
Works, presented an ordinance for paving
Wylie avenue between the car tracks and
curbs from High street to Fulton street. Mr.
Duncan made a hard fight to have the paving
extended to Herron avenue, but failed, and the
Mr. Bigham also presented an ordinance
granting to the Central Board of Education a
strip 30x360 feet along the top of the Bedford
avenue basin, on which to erect a janitor's
Chief Blgelow approved it Ho said be had
been given $5,000 to turn the reservoir into a
park, and the janitor's house would spoil it.
He didn't want shirts hanging in the park on
wash days. The janitor gets as much money as
the professor at tho High School, and be sug
gested that the janitor do like the prof essor,
rent a house to live In.
The document was laid over until next week.
Tho following important ordinances were in
troduced: Widening and opening Diamond
street to a width of 60 teet from Smithfleld
street through the market honses; modifying
the contract with the East End Electric Light
Company; granting the Pittsburg, Oakland and
East Liberty Railway the right to lay a track
along Atwood, Boquet, Frazier, ward and
Bemple streets, a loop line, and to use either
horses or cable as a motive power; a supple
ment to ordinance granting the Pittsburg.

THE COUET'S CHAMPION.
Sir. Warmcastle Defend tbe Judge In Se
lect Council Ho la Unsuccessful Res
Isnatloni Go to a Committee.
In Select Council also the license question
was discussed. When the resignation of
James Getty, Jr., as Councilman of the
Second ward, was read Mr. "Warmcastle
moved that it be accepted, but after the vote
had been partially taken Mr. Robertson
arose, and securing permission of the Chair,
entered his protest against such action by offer
ing a motion to refer the resignation of Mr.
Getty and others to a special committee. Mr.
Robertson made a strong plea against accept
ing these resignations too quickly. He said:
"this is the first time in its history Pittsburg
Councils have been called upon to accept the
resignation of a member at tbe dictum of the
Court, and why it should be necessary for a
man to resign an honorable position, to which
he was elected by his neighbors, who, above all,
know the value, integrity and worth of the
man, is beyond my comprehension. Tbe Court
has intimated that a saloon kept by a Council
man is tbe place where all kinds of wicked jobs
are set up and intrigues entered into. This is
onlv a supposition, and a very unfair one at
that Is there a member of this nubllobody
who would tolerate the belief that Mr. Getty or
Mr. O'Neill would be guilty of doing anything
that was not for tbe best interestof theDeoclef
I think not We all know that James Getty
has always been the people's champion. Why
the Court should debar the people from the
services of such men I cannot understand.
GOOD MEN WANTED.
"One of the most important features of the
Brooks law is that good, moral men only shall
be licensed. It seemed to me that a man who
has been elected and re-elected by the people
of this ward to fill an honorary position, such
as a member of Councils, can have no higher
certificate of character than this, and instead
of militating against should be one of the
strongest points in favor of him in his applica
tion for license. I am surprised that so learned
a Judge should, by his construction of the law,
feel compelled to decide that the business of
selling liquors was incompatible with the posi
tion of a Councilman of the city, and I am at a
loss to know whether the Court means to re
flect on the saloon or on the city Councils.
When Judges will thus construe our laws we
have little to assure us that some other Judge,
less learned, will not decide that some other
branch of business in which a member of this
body may be engaged, is also incompatible
with the position of Councilman and compel
him to resign. My motion is Intended to clace
this matter in the hands of a committee, which
will endeavor to see if there is no other way
out of it without resigning."
Mr. Warm castle immediatelyarose and asked
why tbe motion already voted on should sot be
allowed to pass. He thought that as Mr. Getty
had tendered bis resignation in good faith it
should be accepted promptly and not referred
and held back, for that would no doubt en
danger his license and his business.
WHEEE THET DIEFEE.
Mr. Robertson replied that Mr. Getty had
already complied with the requirements of the
Court and tbe matter was now the business of
Councils. He wanted tbe special committee
appointed so that they might hit upon some
plan whereby the gentlemen might be allowed
to keep their licenses and also retain their
seats in Council.
Mr. Warmcastle said that was not right and
he would oppose any such motion. Councils
were not supposed to know what stress these
men were under when they presented their
resignations, and it was the place of Councils
to accept them promptly. Councils bad no
ground to stand upon in defying the Court in
such manner. It was his opinion that the
resignations should be accepted promptly, and
the Ma or should then proclaim an election
for men to take their places so that the wards
they represent should bave new members in
Council at tbe earliest moment possible. Tho
resignations were voluntary and Councils had
no nght to question them.
Mr. Robertson took issue on the latter prop
osition, and said the resignations were not vol
untarily made. They were made under com
pulsion, and Councils had a right to determine
whether the Court could compel a member to
resign his position in order to retain his
Mr. Warmcastle and Dr. Evans both differed
on that view of the matter, and the latter
stated that if tbe resignations were not
promptly accepted be felt very sure it would
result in tbe licenses of the parties Interested
THEY GOT OUT OF IT.
The motion to accept the resignations had
been recorded, and under President Ford's
ruling it was necessary that that motion be re
considered. Mr. Warmcastle and Dr. Evans
opposed this, and the- yeas and says wero
called, with the following result: Yeas, 19;

anaiigh, Collins, Doyle. Gillespie (J. H.). llas

FlUlmmnns, Lambie, Nlsbet Paul, French and
The resignations of M. C. Dwyer, of the
Eighteenth ward, and John O'Neill of the
Fifth ward, were then read, and with that of
Mr. Getty were referred to a committee of
lire, with instructions to report at the next
Some difficulty was experienced in securing
a committee representing both sides as the
vote was taken. The Chair appointed Messrs.
Robertson, Doyle, Warmcastle, Lambie and
Dr. Evans. The three last named all declined
as having voted against the reconsideration of
tbe resolution, Mr. Lambie giving an addi
tional reason that it would not do the parties
interested any good to have him on tho com
mittee, because be bad voted sincerely and felt
that way. Mr. Nisbet declined to serve on the
committee also because he had voted against
it and Mr. Williams was put on in his place.
Mr. Collins agreed to take Dr. Evans' place en
the committee if the chair insisted, and Dr.
McCord accepted the place of Mr. Warm
castle. An ordinance authorizing the Controller and
Treasurer to close up certain accounts with
the Delinquent Tax Collector and suspended
banks was opposed by Mr. Lambie on tbe
ground that it was not a safe proceeding to dis
charge tbe credits of tbe city as the bill pro
vided, and his motion to postpone action was
One of tbe most important ordinances pre
sented In Select Council was that regulating
street parades, processions and other assem-
blages, being a copy of an ordinance in force
in ew York City. It provides that all parades
or processions occupyinc or marchlnir .nn
streets, public squares or wharves of tbe city
to tho exclusion or interruption of other
citizens is forbidden, unless written notice of
the object, time, place or route of procession
and the character, purpose and officers of tbe
same be given by the chief officer of the
parade, not less than 21 hours previous to its
forming and marching, to the Superintendent
of Police. G. A. R. posts, the National Guard
and the fire and police forces being excepted.

An Interesting lecture on Socialism in
Christ IT. E. Church.
THE BEST MAN BOUND TO GET Off TOP
An address on "Socialism" by the Eev.
C. E. Felton, D. D., was embodied in the
programme of the weekly entertainment of
the Young People's Society of Christian
Endeavor at Christ M. E. Church, on Penn
avenue last night, and the large audience
which had assembled for the occasion paid
close attention to the lecture throughout
Dr. Felton, after giving a short review of
the history of socialism, from the efforts of
Xycurgus and the Spartans in Greece down
to the modern phases of nihilism and com
"There is no doubt that there is an under
lying element of dissatisfaction in our
society which demands readjustment There
is something wrong somewhere, and the
workings and efforts of socialism are nothing
else but the pulsations of a law which is slowly
working itself out That it eventually
TILL COME BIGHT
I have not the least doubt But I do not agree
with the elements that are brought into forco
by the Socialists,
"The Socialist of to-day advances the theory
that nature's gifts were given to be equally
divided among all men. The Socialist does not
allow a man to have private property; he wants
everything to belong to the community. Then
again, the Socialist is more or less an enemy of
established religion, as he is an enemy to all
existing social institutions.
"Now, lama believer in socialism myself;
but 1 bold that the man who has tbe most fit
ness to exist has also tbe most right to do so.
In that sentence you bave the solutiond what
the evolution of socialistic workings amount
to. It has been the rule in nature ever since
the world has been created; it is so to-day, and
it will be the same in the future. The survival
of the fittest will be the result Thousands of
years ago we bad different plants, different
animals and different races oilmen from those
we have to-day. Those that could .not keep
step with the advance of evolutionary progress
remained behind in the race, and the fittest
"To-day the white man of America is pander-.
ing to the Indian; still he is dying out in spite
of it The outcome of this underlying element
of dissatisfaction, which is
WOBKINO TO GET BIGHT,
will be nothing but the triumph of the most
competent He will be triumphant he will be
victorious, whether he be the man who works
at the anviL or he who sits in the Senate. Tbe
slow, conversative man will tarry behind,
while the progressive genius will advance until
he gets to the top of the hill and plants there
bis banner ot victory.
"And is it right that it should be so? Cer
tainly it Is. The competent man should be the
survivor, because he has the most right In
the battle of life the ignorant has always to
give to the intelligent; the weaker always
has to (rive wav to the stronger.
" iVhat should we do, therefore? Simply this:
Seek the best intellectual, moral, physical and
social development that you can find. Keep
aDreast with tbe demands of progression:
make yourself competent for the race, and you
will be one of them who has a right to survive;
you will be fit
"The great fault of modern socialism is a de
parture from religions principals; in fact, a
great feature of existing socialism is an aliena
tion of religion, and most Socialists are either
agnostics, materialists or atheists. Now that
is the mistake. Were socialism to rest upon
and endeavor to get its rights through tho
teachings of the Man from Galilee. It would, I
bave no doubt, be more successful."
East End Peoplo Resolve to Commend
Judge White's Coarse.
The temperance people of the East End
met last evening and indorsed Judge White
in the following series of resolutions:

important ana responsioie omces iu lueir gut, ii&b
been attacked for exercising as his own convic
tions or duty dictated through sonnd discretion,
vested in him by the law, in reference to the issu
ance of licenses tq sell liquor; and
Whereas, We believe lht this attack has been
dictated br those who were disappointed In the
result of their application for license: and
Whereas, We look upon this attack as an effort
to intimidate the Judiciary and as an effort to work
out an unworthy desire for revenge upon Judge
White and to hold him to public opprobrium; now
Resolved, That we have the utmost confidence
In the Integrity, honesty and abllltv of Judge
White. We believe that he has faithfully, hon
estly, conscientiously and fearlessly discharged
his duty In the License Court; that we Indorse
and approve his course therein, and that we
pledge him our full confidence and earnest sup

condition of affairs here, left for Irwin station,
where he addressed a meeting last night Mr.
Wheat will be in tho city to-night and address
a secret meeting of Knights at their ball on

This is Mr. Wheat's first visit to Pittsburg,

man who haB lived in tbe great State of Iowa."

"The order is in better shape than it has ever
been. It is not growing rapidly, but member

to see any organization growing rap

I am convinced of that fact, but cannot say
rmuch on tbe matter until after the trial. I will
say this, however, that the persons
who are urging the case are sorry
they ever mentioned tbe matter, as
Master Workman Ross is entirely innocent
of any crookedness, and there is no shortage
in his accounts. The man who is agitating this

ANOTHER MEETING OF MINERS.
A Committee Appointed to Arbitrate With
tbe Coal Operators.
A joint meeting of the delegates of all the
Western Pennsylvania miners who are on
strike was held yesterday afternoon in Rup
ple'sHall. A committee from the operators,
composed of F. L. Robbins and Alexander
Dempster, was present for the purpose of de
termining what the miners intend to do. They
discussed the matter with the delegates, but
made no propositions in regard to a settlement
of the strike.
W. T. Lewis, Secretary of theN.P.U., was
present ana maae sn aaaress.
A number of new arguments as to why the
operators could afford to pay the scale price
74 cents all the year were expressed. The
representatives from the operators said they
would not pay more than what they had agreed
upon among themselves 71 for the first six
months and 76 for the balance of tbe year.
After much discussion on both sides, a com
mittee was appointed to wait upon tbe opera
tors and ask them what arbitration proposition
they could agree upon.
The miners claim they will meet the opera
tors halfway. When It comes to making over
tures or taking the first step to settle the strike,
both sides drawofi and wait until some move is
made by the other crowd. Another meeting
will be held to-day, when it is expected that
something may be compromised upon.

wage-worker would like to see the eight-hour
rule adopted by all trades, the members of this
organization do not allow their enthusiasm to
overrule their conservatism. At the last meet
ing of Typographical Union No. 7 the matter
was discussed, in order to give the delegations
to the annual convention In June an intelli
gent idea of how they should vote npon the
matter when it came up in due form.
At the meeting of No. 7 it was decided that it
wouia do impolitic on tne part or the com-
Sositors of this city to indorse the measure. No
istructlons were given the delegates, but they
will be allowed to use their own judgment in
tbe matter and be guided by the action of their
The primary reason for refusing to Indorse
tbe law is that it would not be put into effect
all over the country. The members of No. 7
say tbe nine-hour law was a disastrous failure
two years ago, and there is no hope bat that
the eight-hour rule will follow in the wake of

SKILLED MEN AT DUQTJESNE.

Strikers and Go to Work.
At Duquesne yesterday six skilled work
men arrived from Bethlehem. On the train
they claimed to have known nothing about the
strike and said they would go back on the next
train, but when they went through the town
on their way to tbe works they passed the
strikers without noticing them. Twenty-three
laborers also went up on the morning train and
crossed tbe river from Saltsburg and went to
work in tbe mill.
The deputies, and especially the officers in
charge, are very indignant at the report pub
lished to the effect that some of them were
Harry Hummel, better Known as "Red
Onion," one of the strikers, was arrested
yesterday. This makes nine arrests inside of

ON THE ALBION FARM.
Recollections Recalled by the Death
of an Early Settler,
MRS. SUTTON, OF LAWBENCEtlLIE
She lived in That End of Town Since the
HEE ST0ET OP AN INDIAN BDTCHEEI
In the death of Mrs. Ann Sutton, of
Winebiddle avenue, Lawrenceville loses
onejf its early settlers. Her life was a
part of the history of that section of the city.
It stretched across the lapse of years from
that period when but two or three farms
broke the immensity of the forests which
covered the shores of the Allegheny between
old Bayardstown and the site of the Sharps
burg bridge, to the present day when the
Seventeenth ward alone is the most popu
lous in Pittsburg, and several other wards
besides are embraced within the territory
described. It was marvelous what her
memory compassed. An obituary on the
fourth page of to-day's Dispatch tells of
Mrs. Sutton was the daughter of Richard
Bishop. She was born in England, and
came to this city with her father and his
family in 1S0S. Mr. Bishop, soon aftor
his arrival, purchased a farm from Gen
eral John Wilklns, who was Burgess of Pitts
burg 100 years ago, and the father of the cele
brated Judge William Wilkins. The farm lay
j as t west of the Sharpsburg bridge, on the
Pittsburg side of the river, and extended back
from tbe river over the hillside. It was then
known as tho "Albion Farm," and to this day
the name Is still retained in the neighborhood.
That is the Eighteenth ward flow, and the
whole hill is known in local nomenclature as
Mt. Albion, while the public school is desig
nated by the Central Board as the Albion
school. In the years afterward Mr. Bishop
became a widely known resident and was in
fluential in local affairs. On bis farm he en
tertained the State Commissioners who sur
veyed and laid out the Pennsylvania canal on
tho other side of the Allegheny river.
AS INTEEESTING EEMINISCKKCE.
A few years ago workmen for the Standard
Oil Company were excavating ground in the
Eighteenth ward for the foundations of an oil
tank. They unearthed a lot of bones. When
Mrs. Sutton at that timcf aged, but still of
very bright memory heard of the incident she
related to the writer of this article the proba
ble history of those bones. She said that in the
year 1791 a family named Chambers removed to
Pittsburg, which was then only a small town,
and took up their residence somewhere in the
vicinity of the present Court House. There
was a small clearing in what was afterward
the Albion farm, near tbe Sharpsburg bridge.
All else between that and the old town of
Pittsburg was unbroken forest Mr. Chambers
purchased this in. the spring of the year and
planted upon it a corn field. He did not move
his family out to it, but only built a small log
cabin in which he could obtain shelter while
doing a couple of days' work.
Mr. Chambers had two sons, who were some
where in the neighborhood of 16 and 18 years
of age. A young man named firadshaw, a
nephew of Chambers, was also living with the
family. In the summer of 1731 Mr. Chambers
sent these three young men out to his small
farm to do some work upon it. They were gone
about a week, and when they returned they
seemed to be much frightened, and told about
seeing the Indians skulking about their cabin.
The lather laughed at their fears. He said
he desired them to return the next day (Mon
day) and complete what they had been doing.
They all pleaded earnestly to be allowed to
stay at home, out Mr. Chambers was a stern
old fellow, and would not favor the wishes of
his sons and nephew. One of the former openly
rebelled, saying he would rather die at home
than be scalped by the Indians. The next
day he ran awav. On Monday moraine young
Bfadshaw and bis companion left to finish
their work in their corn fields.
AH INDIAN MASSACBE.
The parents heard nothing more of them
that week. On Saturday evening the son who
had ran off returned home, and upon learning
that his brother and cousin had not re
turned started out to hunt them. By
this time the mother bad become very
anxious about them also, and she would
not allow her other son to go to look for
them alone, but accompanied him herself, it
was a beautiful moonlight night, and they bad
no difficulty whatever in getting over the five
mile stretch of wooded country, which lay be
tween their home and the little log but on the
banks of the Allegheny. Upon arriving in
sight of it they were greeted with a sicken
ing odor, and a few steps more re
vealed to them a horrible sight. Lying
upon the ground close by the fence
was the bloody and mangled form of young
Bradshaw, and several yards distant was the
corpse of Chambers also. From all appear
ances the Indians had attacked them unawares
and they had no opportunity to defend them
selves. They were fast decomposing and bad
evidently been killed several days. Mrs. Cham
bers and her son went back home, and in the
morning, with the aid of the late Mr. Sample,
the gentleman who once owned all the proper
ty now known as Mlllvale, opposite Lawrence
ville, buried the two young men on the same
Bpot they were killed. Their remains were
wrapped only in a sheet, and their graves were
marked by two small sandstone slabs. Years
rolled on, and tho farm, after being much en
larged, changed hands, evetually getting into
Mr. Bishop's possession. Mrs. Sutton bad
often seen the tombstones when out on the
A STEA1TOE VEBD7ICATIOK.
Time soon obliterated all traces of where the
graves ot young Chambers and Bradshaw lay,
and all save a few ola residenters forgot the
story of how they perished at the hands of the
After the writer printed this story from Mrs.
Sutton's lips, in one of the Pittsburg papers, it
led to surprising results.. The further state
ment had been made in the article at that time
that the exact spot where the bodies had been
interred was on the outskirts of the Standard
barrel factory property. The same laborers
who had dug up the bones happened to read
Mrs. Sutton's story of their discovery. It in
spired them to deeper search, and on the day
after the publication of tbe article they ac
tually found the identical tombstones spoken
of by tbe old lady. They sent word to the
writer, and an Investigation showed faint let
tering and figuring on tbe stones which cor
responded with tbe names and dates given by
Mrs. Sufton. Thus, after the constant plowing
of several different farmers, and the accumu
lation of made-ground after the place was
taken into a great city, the ancient stones
themselves turned up to verify the lady's re
markable memory r
