General Wortliy Foreman Wheat Addresses
HE BATS THAT THE OEDERIS GBOWIBG
The strike of 6,000 railroad miners is
ended, and work in all of the mines will be
resumed to-day. A concession was made
by the diggers, and the operators also con
ceded a point or two. The price lor the en
tire year will be 7S cents per ton, -which is 1
cent less than was demanded.
By this concession the miners will not
lose more than 7 or S apieee. The opera
tors seemed anxious to settle the trouble,
end when the convention was held on M on
day, sent a messenger to the meeting asking
for a conference.
A committee was appointed to meet them,
but thev declined to enter into any acree-
ment unless the operators assured them that
they had power to act. The convention
then adjourned and reassembled at Knights
of Labor Hall yesterday morning. The
Pittsburg Coal Association also met yester
day morning at their rooms on Fifth ave
nue. After discussing the situation at
length it w- decided to settle the matter, if
possible, and a committee ol three was ap
pointed, with power to act.
The miners' convention was well attended,
there being representatives present from N. P.
U., K. of L. and unorganized mines. They
also appointed a committee which met the
operators, and in a short time an agreement
was drawn up and signed which settles the
"wage question among the miners of the Pitts
burg railroad district for one year.
The miners urged a'4-cent rate, and finally
offered to submit the matter to arbitration,
but the operators would not agree to this.
After arguing the question for several hours
the following was drawn up and signed by the
Pittsburg. May 14.
At a convention held In this city this day,
the resolution presented to oner to the
operator the price of 73 cents as the
price to jroTern the mining or coal In

A HAMT PBESIrfT.
" President Conway, of the N. P. U. in this
district, was one of the happiest men in the
country last night. He said he was glad the
trouble was over, as he could now enjoy a few
days ot much-needed rest. Rational Secretary
Lewis was also well pleased over the result, and
wired the news to President McBride at once.
In speaking of the trouble last evening Sec
retary TJmbstaetter, of the Coal Association,
said: "If the miners had gained their point at
the start they wonld net have made more than
10, as they cannot mine moro than 100 Jons of
coal in six months, and tho difference is only
2J cents per ton. While they were -n aiting for
a settlement each man lost f ally &K."'
N ational Secretary Lewn in talking on the
Subject said: "It is a very difficult matter for a
miner to turn out 400 tons in six months. The
consumption ot coal will be the same v Aether
the miners of the Pittsburg district are oat on
a strike or not. They have lost a couple of
weeks time but will Tnake that up and earn
just as much money as if the strike bad not oc
curred. All of the operators have orders to fill
and will fill them. The men may have to work
a little harder, but they have not lost any thing
by the strike.

THE OBDER INCREASING.
Another Interesting Talk by General Worthy
Foreman Wheat, of the E. of L. nisj
Reasons for Its Growth.
General "Worthy Foreman Morris L.
"Wheat, of Iowa, addressed, a number of
Knights of labor at their hall on Fifth ave
nue last evening. It was a secret meeting,
and only members of the order were ad
mitted. Mr. Wheat is a very entertaining
talker. He will deliver a public lecture at
Lafayette Hall to-night, and his subject will be
"Land, .Money and Transportation."
In conversation with a Dispatch reporter at
the closo of the meeting air. "Wheat said: "I,
will talk on the subject of labor, and answer
or attempt to answer all qnestions asked me."
In speaking of the condition of the order,
Mr. Wheat said it was in excellent shape and
is increasing rapidly in membership. "We have
seven lecturers in the field," said he, "and all
of them are in Ohio at present. From Novem
ber to January there was a decrease in mem
bership, but from January 1 to April 1 there
was a marked increase. During the month of
January SfiOO was received for charters for new
locals .at S16 each; in February 700, and in
March 1,114. By the 15 cent assessment for
the educational fund last year, and 5 cents
this yeAr. 20,200 was raised, and of that
amount 55,991 was still in the treasury. A
member of the General Executive Hoard re
ceived $1,600 for the educational fund from a
local assembly in Manchester. N. H.
During my travels over the country in the
Interest of the order I have not heard of but
one unkind comment, and that was in a country
"I hare just heard that the order has been
started in Ireland. We have a number of
assemblies in England and Belgium, and I pre
dict a large mem bersblp for the order in Erin."
In his lecture last night Mr. Wheat spoke on
several subjects of interest to the members. He
said there should be discipline, intelligence and
co operation. He spoke of the educational
features, and said the future policy of the
order must be followed out on that line. He
advised harmony, and said the Knights would
then command the respect of all persons.
A PRIVATE INVESTIGATION.
Persons' Interested in the Importation of
Foreigners to be Looked Over Their
Kick Won't Count.
The Executive Board of the Central
Trades Council of "Western Pennsylvania
will meet to-night at Knights of Labor Hall
to inquire into the charges that President
Campbell, Secretary Cake and others have
violated the contract labor law by import
ing foreign class Mowers for Jeannette. Tho
investigation will be a secret one, and Mr.
Campbell, as stated yesterday, refuses to at
tend. He has expressed a willingness be in
vestigated, bnt demands a public investiga
tion. The Trades Council will not consent to a
public affair, and the investigation will have to
proceed without the principals.
President Joseph L. Evans, of the Central
Trades Council, was seen yesterday and saidr
'The investigation will begin on Wednesday
night, and we have subpoenaed U witnesses. I
do not remember who they all are, bat John
Phillips, Frank M. Gessner, Isaac Cline and
Homer L. JicGaw are on the list. The two ex
officials of the Window Glass Workers' Asso
ciation seem to bo armed with some good testi
mony against their successors in the orcaniza"
tion. The proceedings, of course, will be con
ducted privately, but the result will be made
"it we una that toe persons charged tntn
violatme the law are guilty. I will likely be in
structed, as President of the Trades Council,
to institute legal proceedings against them in
the United States Courts.
"I understand that they claim that ex-Attorney
General Garland rendered a decision once
to tho effect that it workers were needed here
that it would not be a violation of the law to
bring some over. I do not believe he made the
statement credited to him, but if he did that
will not save the persons interested in the im
portation, if they are guilty."
THE SITUATION AT DUQUESNE,
Balls Are Being Made and tho Sttike Will
Likely be Lost.
There has been no change in the situation
at Daquesne. Trouble is experienced by
the Steel Company in securing supplies for
the men insido and to obtain bouses for
married men. All the stores in the neighbor
hood except G. R. Fawcett's, at Saltsburg, re
fuse to sell the company anything.
The number of strikers seems to be getting
less. It is reported that they are leaving town
and have given up the strike. Deputies still
pitrol the town and yards. The mill is running
fall with about 200 men working who seem to
be making rails pretty lively.
They Want Moro Wnce.
The buggy boys at the butt-weld department
of Moorhead's pipe mill, Soho, have been on a
strike for several days. Three furnaces are
Idle. The boys were getting 1 12 and de
manded 1 40, which is said to be more than is
paid at other mills.
A coke operator yesterday denied the report
that new coke works were being built. He
savs that some works are being repaired, bat
none are being built.
Ir is stated that Charles L. Work, represent

A BRITISH-AMERICAN BOOT.
The Descendants of John Ball Arrnnco to
The British-American Association No. 2
held an animated meeting last night in the
hall in" the Moorhcad building, ou Grant
street. After arranging to pay the expenses of
the late reception at Imperial Hall and pro
viding therefor, a long and lively discussion
ensued regarding the arrangement of prelim
inaries for a debate on the proposed prohibi
tory amendment to the State Constitution to
be voted on the ISth of next month.
The object of tho debate is if possible, to ar
rive at atlehnite understanding of the merits
and dements of the measure, as the members
are widelv divided in sentiment thereon, some
being strongly opposed to and others as radi
cally in favor of it. It was finally agreed that
the debate shall take place at the meeting on
the 2Sth inst, and it is agreed that the dissec
tion of tho subject will be very thorough.
It was also decided to institute a course of
"nickel" readings similar to the "penny" read
ings of themother island, a project which will
not only be very Interesting and Instructive,
but supply funds for the prosecution of the
work of the association, combining pleasure
and profit in a fair degree.
NEW EEAS0N FOR DELAY.
Uncle Sam' Local Time or Eternity Shop
Now Awaits Brick.
In answer to inquiries from the depart
ment in regard to the suspension of stone
cutting on the new Government building
in Pittsburg, Superintendent Malone has writ
ten that he stopped the setting of stone until
the bricklayers shonld bring the interior walls
up even with the granite portion. When
asked if this was necessary or customary, the
autnoritles at the department declined to ex
press an opinion.
Some time ago, when the first criticisms of
Superintendent Malouc's tactics began to ap
pear In the Pittsburg newspapers, the depart
ment intimated that an expert would be sent to
examine into the matter and report. This was
partly on account of the criticisms and partly
on account of the anxiety of Contractor Mc
Gowan, who claims that the delay occasioned
by Mr. Malone is a great pecuniary loss to him.
The correspondent ot The Dispatch yes
terday Inquired at the office of the supervising
architect if any expert had been or would be
sent, and was told that such a step had been
contemplated, but that since it was first
broached no expert had been available for the
purpose. When one would be sent, if at all, no
one could say.

A Claim That the System Will he liahle

OTHER CAUSES OP DISSATISFACTION
The employes of the Pennsylvania Com
uanv. in this city and Allegheny, are still
awaiting some official notice of the new re
lief scheme which will go into effect on all
the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg in
There is considerable dissatisfaction aris
ing out of tbe appointment of R. P. Smith,
General Agent of the Cleveland and Pitts
burg road at Cleveland, to the position of
Superintendent of the Relief Department,
and JF. C. Thayer, Assistant Auditor of
Disbursements in this city, to the position
of Assistant Superintendent.
"When the relief idea was first broached
the majority of the employes thought that
the officers of the association Would be elect
ed by tha employes, and not appointed by the
company. The executive officers of the com
pany have said that the association was to be
entirely free and Independent from their juris
diction. WHERE DISSATISFACTION EXISTS.
In view of this the employes In Allegheny
think the company had no right to appoint tbe
officers to manage the business of the em
ployes. Most of the dissatisfaction exists in the
Operating or clerical departments of the com
pany, although there are any number of men in
tbe transportation department that say
they will object going into the association.
Men who hold clerkships say they will be com
pelled to pay the same rate of insurance as the
men who are running on the road. The former
are not exposed to accident or deatb, while the
latter are liable to be maimed or killed every
moment they are on duty. The men who do
not run any risk of accident say they will not
give part of their wages "to stave off damage
suits'' that may arise against the company.
Some of tbe officers have told clerks that they
would not be entitled to any insurance benefits
if they met with an accident while not in the
discbarge of their duty.
An old freight conductor said yesterday:
A CONDUCTOR SPECIFIES.
"If I go into this thine I will have over J de
ducted from my pay each month. This goes
into a common fund. In four years I will have
paid in nearly $100. Suppose I get sick or get
several ribs caved in while making a coupling.
I will probably get about $1 a day of my own
money while I am laid up. I will lose my time,
which may amount to $2 75 or 3, while
not ou amy. uwing to the low rate
of benefits I could not afford
to bo off a day longer than
was absolutely necessary, or my family would
suffer. Suppose I should afterward die indi
rectly from the effects of my injuries. It is a
question whether my widow wouTd get any
thing or not If she did get about 500, the
fact of my joining tbe association and my
widow taking the insurance money, she would
waive all claims for damages. She wonld sign
away her rights to recover anything more and
the company woutd be the gainer, even when
they were responsible for the accident that
caused my death.
THE MONEY RECOVERED
by railroad employes in a year on a large sys
tem amounts to hundreds of thousands of dol
lars annually. This money does not come from
the pockets of employes either. When the
association gets in working order the company
will tell us that we cannot sue them for dam
ages. In Youngstown, O., some men have re
covered as high as 10,000. There is a big dif
ference between this and about 300."
The officials of the company say it will be
optional with each employe as to whether they
join the association or not. The men say this
is a bluff, and any man who objects to joining
will bo the means of causing a vacancy.
Another point raised by the brakemen yester
day was that the company was liable to have its
charter revoked by engaging in the insurance
ousiness, which is something foreign to tho
purpose for which the company was organized

nnd Wnnt a Ilechrlstcnius.
Tbe ordinance presented in Council on
Monday to change the name of Virgin alley
to "Ono way" is a proof of the growth and
progress of Pittsburg, as well as its thorough
fares. The movement originated with Mr.
While speaking of the proposed change of
the name, Mr. P. F. Smith, who has his print
ing office on the alley, said: "I am heartily in
favor of the plan, and for several reasons.
Since the cable cars are running down Fifth
avenue, Virgin alley is becomine a regular
thoroughfare for vehicles, as well as pedes
trians, especially because it Is asphalted. Then
again, the name Virgin alley leads people to in
fer that tbe street is a low, disreputable place.
Probably that was tbe way the idea of changing
the name originated. Bat to-day, where we
have not a shanty or dive left On the sheet, a
more decent name would be very appropriate."

PIEST A8 AN INVENTION OF DEVILS.
Astronomy's Initial Insight
AN EXHIBIT 0P SMALL THINGS
At the Pittsburg Library the Iron City
Ificfoscopical Society met last evening for
a real treat. The meeting was well at
tended and particularly interesting, from
the fact of Prof. Brashear'a pres
ence. He was nnnonnced to have
read a paper on "Lenses. Their
Spherical and Chromatic Aberations."
The students and admirers of science pres
ent were composed of the best people from
the cities, many ladies included. The usual
foimallties were gone over, such as reading
minutes, mentioning applicants,' names for
admission, etc.; then Dr. Holland, the
President, introduced.Mr. Brashear (as he
wishes to he called), who addressed the
audience about as follows:
"The subject to-night is one of material
interest to me and-to students of lenses here
present. Away back in the early ages the
microscopes, or lenses, weie used; and it was
by a very poor glass that the five companion
stars of Jupiter were discovered. I had the
pleasure of looking through the sun glass in a
museum recently, and its
POWEB OF HOT ATTRACTING
is most remarkable. Nowadays we have
glasses which would magnHy and attract 25
times as great yes, 100 times. When tbe first
lenses were introduced by Roger Bacon, the
Superstitious people thought that they were
the work of the devil, or, in other words, he
was a supernatural being. So much did they
believe it that a headstono over the grave of a
spectacle dealer in London, who died a century
or so ago, bears this epitaph;

Mr. Brashear beautifully demonstrated the
relations between the hidden mvsteries of the
heavens and the lens, as well as showing the
different degrees of perception by which the
telescope's or microscope's reflection revealed
an object more insignltfcint to the sight than
the wind. With numerous illustrations by
blackboard and instruments, the scientist was
Tbe exhibitions were also of a character
which were intensely interesting to the scien
tific people present, and through the courtesy
of Mr. Ogden the names of the Specimens are
given. The first shown was the eye of a ueetle,
snowing an image of the cross. The next un
der tho glass was
A bumblebee's TONGITE,
by Mr. C. 0. Mellor. This little part ot the
bee's anatomy was earnestly looked at, many of
the people( evidently, having been impressed
by the other end of its tongue. Everyone, al
most, has to have an argument with tho ob
noxious June bug during May and July; but
the sight of his intestine0, intensified by the
glass, is simply "snaky," Mr, W. T. Dennis
ton has the credit of this expose of "his June
There was also a section of a cat's tongue
shown under the glass, which was truly
romantic from being out moonlight nights
bat it was so graphically exhibited that a
description of it is impossible.
The scientific talk of Mr. Brashear, coupled
with the microscopical exhibition, was a most
entertaining and educating pastime. Several
new applications for admission were read, but
their names are to be considered till next meet
ing, a month hence.
DE. DONEHOO TO EUROPE.
Tbo WelJ. Known Secretary of the Blind
' School Left Lust 'Evening Dr. Cnmpbelf
to Come Hero and Look nt a Site.
Eev. E. B. Donehoo, pastor of the Eighth
Presbyterian Church, and Secretary of
the Western Pennsylvania School for the
Blind, left last evening for New York. To
day he, will set sail on the City of Paris for
Europe, where he willremain for about four
TJpon arriving in London he will proceed
to the Koyal Normal College at Upper Nor
wood, about 14 miles distant, when ho will
havs a conference with Dr. J. F. Camp
bell, Esq. principal of that institution.
The latter is tbe best known place in the world
for the treatment of the blind, and an effort
will be made to have Dr. Campbell come to
Pittsburg and take charge of the Western
Pennsylvania Institution, when it is built. The
particulars of the proposition to be offered him
and a history of Dr. Campbell's school have al
ready been published in The Dispatch. Dr.
Campbell, who is a blind man himself, will be
asked to come here and look at the
site the local society intends to build
upon. How a blind man can look
unon a site and suggest the advisability of
building npon it may not be clear to many peo
ple1, but Dr. Campbell is endowed with percep
tions, which enable him to perform any nnm
per of things which may seem impossible. He
is a Yankee by birth, but has lived in Europe
about 18 years. He is one of tbe most eminent
musicians in the world.
Upon leaving London Mr. Donehoo will go to
Edinburgh, and from there will go to France.
He will investigate and inspect the best blind
asylums of Europe before returning home.

THAT LITTLE BLACK BABE.
The Infant Abandoned by Its Mother Dies In
The infant that was abandoned by its
mother, Miss Lizzie Nolan, in Allegheny
on Sunday, died at the General Hospital
yesterday afternoon. The white mother is also
in tho hospital, and is in a very precarious con
dition. Three physicians examined the babe
yesterday, and say it i3 a colored child.
Coroner McDowell visited the hospital last
evening, and seems to be rather puzzled as to
what kind of a charge he can make against the
mother of tho child. It was not Infanticide, as
tbe little one lived for two days after it was
abandoned, but its death was undoubtedly due
to neglect. He will hold an inquest on the body
The man who is engaged to be married to
Miss Nolan obtained permission from Chief
Kirschler to visit her at the hospital yesterday.
He does not believe she Is guilty, and says he
will marry her as soon as she is released.
