MAY' 14., 1889;
The Final Arguments in the Trial of
Superintendent Starr.
Bid the Witness Cunningham Tell the
Truth, or Act Yindictivelj?
The trial of Superintendent Starr, of the
Pittsburg, Fort "Wayne and Chicago Bail
tray was resumed in Criminal Court yester
day. J. Sharp McDonald, Judge Stowe,
Itobert Wilson and Frank Osborne all testi
fied to Mr. Starr's character as a citizen, a
gentleman and a railroad man. John 3?.
33dmundson, an eye witness of the accident,
described it, but produced no new facts.
John N. JTeeb testified to the protests of cit
izens'against the ringing of engine bells.
Trainmaster Turner was recalled, and tes
tified that there was no blowing of whistles
in the city limits. John Kirschner, an elec
trician in charge of the company's telegraph
system, testified that the electric warning bell
at the Federal street crossing Is not entirely
L. A. Hall, formerly chief clerk for Superin
tendent Starr, explained the rnles and regula
tions for the government of employes of the
Pennsylvania Company, which arc prepared hy
the general manager after a conference with
the division superintendents, and that the su
perintendents are as much bound by the rnles
as any of tbeir subordinates. Order No. 55 was
referred to Mr. Starr by the general manager,
and it applied to Allegheny alone. The wit
ness then read to the jury the communications
passing between the higher officials and Super
intendent Starr bearing on the issuing of order
At the afternoon session Mr. Gowen, for the
prosecution, submitted his points to Judge Ma
gee and spoke at length, holding Mr. Starr
guilty of the death of Miss "Weyrnan and Mr.
Culp, by the issuing of order No. 55, forbidding
any blowing of whistles and rincing of bells.
Mr. Johnston, for the defense, argued that
the defendant was simply acting under orders
of a higher official, ana "had no discretion in
the matter. Mr. Johnston said that the prose
cutor. Constable "V. D. Carlisle, was ashamed
(to appear and face the man he accused. If he
had tho material outline of the defense could
have been different. Further, the suppression
of a number of witnesses to the accident on
the part of the prosecution was in itself an act
of no little consideration. Men like Gregg,
Parke and McCord had to be produced by the
defense. Mr. Johnston appealed to the jury to
consider the influence brought to bear on Mr.
Etarr about the nuisance ot whistling, eta,
and said that the order 55 was ordered by Mr.
Starr's superiors. The testimony of several
witnesses was reviewed in detail. 8. B. Cun
ningham, the gate keeper at the time of the
accident, was accused of perjury in his testi
mony while on the stand. The evidence of
Mr. Duncan was that Cunningham bad said
he would send Mr. Starr to the penitentiary.
Mr. Johnston argued for some time on the
action taken by Cunningham, who, in his evi
dence, swore that he turned his back on the
locomotive when he saw it coming. Mr. John
Eton asked if a man of irreproachable char
acter should be sent to the penitentiary on the
perjury of a witness.
The defense also presented the points that
the driver of the street car should have looked
up the track; that the sad death of two passen
gers could have been avoided by those parties
remaining on the car; that the engineer of the
train had whistled and rung the bell, which
many witnesses bad sworn to. In closing, Mr.
Johnston asked that Mr. Starr should not be
branded as a criminal.
Mr. Kobb, another of the counsel for the de
fense, argued after Mr. Johnston's close, and
followed to a considerable extent in that gen
tleman's vein. He told the jury that if there
was a reasonable doubt, they must acquit the
defendant. Mr. Kobb mado a cursory review
of the testimony and placed the entire respon
siDility on Cunningham.
"Mr. Gowen spoke for a lone time, reviewed
considerable testimony, expounded a good deal
of law to the court and jury and brought his
technical knowledge of railroad science to
bear with much force on his argument. He
held that Mr. Starr was
lor order 65, and that the nuisance referred to
in the petition sent Mr. Baldwin, and which led
to the issue of rule 55, was not the whistling or
ringing of hells, bnt the shifting and escaping
of steam in the Allegheny parks. Mr. Gowen
said he never thought of such a thing as Mr.
Starr being sent to the penitentiary; but he
wanted a warning to railroad managers that
human life is to be jeopardized if the bell is
not rung at crossincs. Mr. Gowen said he did
not accuse Mr. Starr of committing a felony,
bnt that he was guilty of a lack of necessary
precautions. As an evidence, the modern elec
trical bell was not used at all posts on the road
for signaling, hence it is not yet time to dis
pense with bell ringing. The speaker made
also many pointed remarks about whistling
signals, and said that, had the enforcement of
the rules in the Pennsylvania Company's book
been made, the gateman would have been ap
prised of a train's approach.
The testimony of Cunningham was upheld
by Mr. Gowen, likewise his action at the time
of the accident. Mr. Gowen closed by saying
he desired to blast no man's reputation, least
of all Mr. Starr's, which could not be done; but
he desired laws better adapted for the safety
of the people.
The court was adjourned, and Judge Magse
Will charge the jury this morning.
Judge Ewing Won't Let an Attorney Say
Blaclubeep or a Striker ScareOne Two
Doqnesne Contempt Cases.
George Harkins and Charles Bousemiller,
two of the workmen from Daquesne who were
served with an Injunction to prevent them
from creating any disturbance in connection
with the strike, were taken before Judge
Swing yesterday afternoon, on an attachment
for contempt of court The attachment was
procured by C. C Dickey, Esq., attorney for
the steel company, allegations being made that
these two had continued to Interfere with the
workmen. After hearing the evidence, Judge
Ewing fined the men 5500 each. In default of
payment to be committed three months to jail.
Harkins and Bousemiller were defended by
Attorneys Cox and Bird, the prosecution being
conducted by C. C. Dickey and K. H. Johnston.
Various affidavits were read, and several
witnesses testified in person, that they were
intimidated hy the threatening crowds, and
prevented from going to work. Among these
witnessess John Beatty testified that he was
afraid of his life and that a workman named
Crawford had been threatened.
Attorney Cox asked Beatty if he had ever
"blackedshecped" before?
Jndge Ewlng interrupted and said: "Mr.
Cox, I am astonished that a member of the bar
should so far forget himself."
Mr. Cox I used the current term, and only
-want to keep this witness from getting too
Judge Ewing I won't tolerate that I am
astonished that a member of the bar should
make use of the slang of a mob. Don't let it
occur again.
Francis Mersh testified to having been seized
by strikers after the stabbing of a man named
Fink, and, with three others, being taken to a
store, searched and tied and kept there all
night The next day he was taken before
'Squire Holtzman and discharged. Harkins
and Bousemiller were present.
Judge Ewing said enough had been sub
mitted to show that the defendants had dis
obeyed the injunction. They were in the crowd
and he would make no fine distinctions. Some
men, he said, had an idea that they could do as
they pleased as long as no heads were broken.
A fine of $500 each was imposed, and the men
were led eff to jaiL Jndge Ewing also ordered
an attachment to issue for Critchlow, who had
been fined a week ago, and wbn. be said, had
not appeared to take the warning given nun.

Colonel Andrews Asked to Use His Influence
With Wisdom.
Colonel Andrews had an interview with
William Thaw yesterday. Tho Colonel
stated that as soon as Mr. Thaw recovered
the meeting of the directors of the Tehaunte
pec Railway would be held for the purpose of
electing a President The Colonel also has a
proposition from English hankers asking for
an option on the bonds of the company.
Speaking of Secretary Windom, Mr. Andrews
said: "I am almost sorry that people know
that Windom and I are friends. I am not in
politics, but I have been bothered considerably
by people who have asked me to write letters
to the Secretary in their behalf. When I saw
Mr. Windom some time ago I told him that he
mustn't be surprised to receive a letter from
me occasionally in the interest of some office
seeker. If you only knew how many I re
fused," I added, "you would thank me."
The Colonel is very much opposed to connect
ing the Ohio and Lake Ene with a canal. He
thinks it is ridiculous for the people to ask the
Government for help lor such a protect There
are other cities that would soon make the same
requests. Colonel Andrews believes in build
ing a four-track railroad.
No More Delay Allowed.
In the first part of next week the argument
in the suit between Edison and Westinghouse
electric companies will come up before Justice
Bradley and Judge McKennan. It was stated
yesterday that the Edison people were still

Shall They be Admitted to the Association?
Men Dlscnss the Question Lectures for
A woman has applied for admission to the
Association of Bookkeepers and Account
ants. This has forced upon the organization
the issue: "Shall -women be admitted?"
The question was considered at a recent
meeting, and will be decided definitely at
the next meeting. There will probably be
found fully as many gentlemen in favor of
admitting the ladies as there are opposed to
them. In PUtsburg and Allegheny quite a
large number of women are employed as book
keepers. A few command as high salaries as
the men, although, like the sterner sex, there
are both good and bad accountants among tho
Two or three able gentlemen in their re
spective lines have offered to deliver a course
of lectures before the association on mercan
tile law, banking law and the different systems
of bookkeeping. The members regard such an
offer as a treat and are now looking around
for a suitable room in which to have them de
livered. They are desirous of keeping within
the heart of the city. An entertainment is pro
jected to inaugurate the first lecture. These
professional addresses are very elaborate. For
instance President Bentley has the clipping of
one delivered before the New York associa
tion. It is a lecture on bookkeeping in an en
gineering foundry and is marvelously profit
able to people Interested in iron mill books.
The bookkeepers' association, is on a sound
basis now. Its officers aro in constant corre
spondence with other associations of Eastern
and Western cities. A register of unemployed
bookkeepers Is carefully kept up. Numbers in
membership is not so mnch the object of tho
association as quality. In various ways mer
chantsmanufacturersand other employers are
finding it a valuable institution.
The Railroads Bearing Rates Down on All
The Pittsburg committee have fixed the
classification of bottles at third-class in less
than car loads and fifth-class In car loads. The
old classification was second and fourth.
In the main it is a reduction, though to some
Fiointsthe rates will be a little- higher than
ormerly. The new classification goes into
effect on the 16th.
A few months ago the through coal rates
beyond Chicago were withdrawn by the East

since then. A fruitless effort has been made to
have them restored. Tho B. fc O. will reissue

This new and famous resort is rapidly growing in public favor. It Is only about five years
since the vlrtuaof the water of the Eureka Kpriugs was first discovered, and in this short time
the numberless cures of chronic diseases affected lr its use have given this resort a reputation
above any other on the continent. Hundreds of cases of Rheumatism. Nenralgia, Kidney Dis
ease, Diabetes, Dyspepsia, Liver Troubles, and the different forms of Eczema,.Slck Headache.
Chlorosis, and the various forms of Female Diseases! have been cured by this water. It is estl?
mated that fully 60 per cent more in proportion to thevnumber treated are cured at these Serines
than at any other resort for the afflicted.
Besides, the place is especially adapted to the wants of the pleasure-seeker and those deslr
ng to spend a few weeks for rest and recreation; its river and streams abound in fish; its parks
and fountains. Its beautiful drives, and neighboring forests which abound in squirrel and other
small game, make it complete in all that constitutes a favorite resort for the public.
In order to accommodate the rapidly increasing patronage, the Mineral Springs Co. have
just completed another large and beautiful hotel, containing 1C0 rooms, which is nicely fur

alleled Statement of Facts
Dr. Smith, at No. 602 ""
Penn Ave.,
No human being Is exempt from disease. The
most powerful and apparently healthy have no
guarantee that their strength will not be taken
from them and their bodies wasted by some
loathsome disease. Few who are in health
consider their liability to disease or pay at
tention to the ills of their suffering fellow
creatures. The following very interesting case
Is that of a woman whose magnificent
physique could apparently defy the rav
ages of disease and pain, aad whose muscles
seemed secure from the ills which weaker
women are heir to, yet she for three long years
was a terrible sufferer and was In a most pitia
ble condition Imaginable, when she applied to
Dr. Smith. The case in question was that of
Mrs. L. H. Auberry, who resides at Mercer.Pa.
Mrs. A. bad been afflicted with hemorrhoids
for a nnmber of years without paying very
much attention to them. But as the years
went by the disease began to grow npon her.
Pile-tumors began to make their appearance at
each movement of the bowels. These tumors
began to increase mslse, and whenprolapsed
would bleed profusely. The pain and
suffering which she experienced from
them, together with tho loss of blood,
from repeated hemorrhages gradually Under
mined her nervous system until she became a
physical wreck. She became weak and languid.
The least physical exertion caused great
fatigue. She lived In constant fear that some
thing dreadful was about to happen. She suf
fered from melancholy, and felt that she would
never get well. A feeling would come
over her that she was alone in thewnrlrl anil
was constantly looking on the dark side of
life. She had tried the skill of so many physi
cians without finding relief that she
had given up a.1 hopes of ever being
restored to health. In connection with haemorr
hoids she suffered from female weakness
In its worst form, and bad become so
thoroughly discouraged that she had given up
in despair. Hearing of the remarkable cures
that are being made by Dr. Smith, the mag
netic physician, at No. 602 Penn ave., she de
cided to consult him, and make one more
effect to be restored to health. She did so,
and began treatment April 3. Mrs. Auberry is
now convalescent, and is one of the happiest
women In this State,
This Is bnt one case among hundreds. The
doctor's offices are crowded dally with cripples
and Invalids of every degree and condition. No
disease escapes the influence of the magnetic
touch, and no person need despair of receiving
benefits thorefrom. No matter what the con
dition or how long you have been sick, there is
hope left. No matter what other physicians
have failed to do, or what prejudiced people
say, Mrs. Auberry had been under the care of
several eminent physicians before coming to
Dr. Smith, and had never been helped.
When other doctors give you up, and the hos
pitals turn you away as incurable, go straight
to 602 Penn ave. and consnlt Dr. Smith; he

About Quality.
It's a mistaken notion to
mdke a pack-horse of 'price
in Clothing.
It can't alter the quality or
turn inferior workmanship
into reliable.
The strong point is Is
this a tried and proved qual
ity? Is it known to be strong?
Is it made of the best and
choice materials? Will it
give me long and good wear?
That's the Wanamaker
rule. Quality is kept in the
foreground quality, without
which dependable clothing
cannot get along.

Specialist in the Care of Rapture and
Chronic Diseases, Office at Hotel Albe
marle, Penn Avenue and Sixth Street,
Thousands suffer for a long series of years
and linger out a useless life, who, with proper
treatment, might be restored to health and
contribute to the health and happiness of
others. In many cases the fault is not theirs,
for they try various doctors and quack nos
trums for relief; but skill Is not readily found.
The general practitioner has but little time or
opportunity for the observation, ot a large
class of chronic complaints. No man can be
come expert in every branch of the healing
art; hence specialists are. demanded for the
highest good of humanity. Dr. Woods' long
ana patient stnay, nis xnowieage oi jvuopatnic,
Homcepatnio and Botanic or Eclectic systems
of medicine, together with his discoveries and
new application of old remedies, have given
him unparalleled success In that class of dis
eases which have until lately baffled the skill
of eminent physicians, and secured for himself
an enviable reputation. Dr. Woods has given
the public evidence sufficient to convince the
most skeptical that his methods are singularly
successful, especially in such cases as have de
fied the skill of other and justly celebrated
It is always the truest economy for Invalids
to secure the best medical aid, and not apply
to a Dhvslcian with a f eelinor that they would
pay liberally if they were only cured. -The way
to obtain health Is to apply to a physician who
is skilled in the treatment of the diseases from
which they suffer, and secure his services and
a course of medicines. The best evidence that
can be furnished of bis claims to confidence is
indisputable evidence ot success. If he had
the ability to effect cures instantly it could not
be accomplished by meditation; it requires an
effort on the part of the patient, who should
have hope, confidence and a desire to bo cured
if possible. This can only be dooe by placing
one's self under treatment without hesitation
about a few dollars, as though health were
subordinate to all other things.
One of the fundamental principles which
guide Dr. Woods in his treatment of patients is
to do justice to all classes, so that mechanics
and laboring men receive the same treatment
at his hands as merchants and bankers. His
successful methods are therefore extended to
all alike, who apply to him for aid, and his
charges are made so reasonable in all cases that
they come within the reach ot all who seek the
benefit of his services. No one who suffers
need hesitate for one moment before applying
to him and being placed on the road to re
covery. Another Inducement for calling on Dr.
Woods is, he makes no extra charge for medi
cines. He compounds his own prescriptions
for his patients and furnishes all necessary In
struments and appliances. This arrangement
saves much trouble, avoids mistakes, Is guar
antee that all the medicines are genuine as
well as effects a saving of money to the afflicted
who are treated by him. Wben possible the
doctor prefers to see his patients; but wben
this is impossible his successful system of treat
ment by correspondence enables the afflicted
In all parts of the world to avail themselves ot
the benefit ot his skill at a very small cost.
Bend four cents in stamps for question list. All
communications sacredly confidential. No
charge for advice. Examinations are also free
to those who desire treatment.
