Yesterday Coroner McDowell finished the
inquest on the bodies of the miners killed
by the gas explosion at the Federal mines,
last Friday. Mine Inspector Blick testified
to the condition of the mine. He said the

could have been rescued.

the monument at Gettyburg.
The deceased always manifested a lively In
terest in tbe public reboots, and was a director

said to have been one of tbe brightest men in
the order. He was made a Mason February 27,

His intimate friends are all of the stick-to-the-death
kind, though but few of them got ac
quainted with him in a day.

was formerly a well-known writer for the dairy
pre s of this city, and served as managing and
writing editor on several papers. He has re

Over 1,300 Tube Workers at tbe National
Rollins; Mill Quit Work Demands for
Advanced Wages. s
About 1,600 of the 5,000 employes of the
National Tube Works Company at McKees
port are idle and the outlook is good for the
number to be 400 larger it the butt weld
mill employes do not go to work this morning.
The men came out yesterday morning on a
strike for an advance of from 5 to 10 per cent,
and claim they will not go back nnless they get
it and as a result the threading floor mill and
the lap weld mill is Idle. These places com
prise a number of departments. Tbe men ask
'for this advance and claim that when a reduc
tion of from 5 to IS per cent was made a year
ago the company promised to give it back
to them when trade improved, and they believe
that the day is at hand. The strike was sudden
and created astonishment, as it was unexpected
by tbe community.
Before the strike was precipitated the men
made efforts through a committee to have the
reduction restored and failed, and tbo com
pany remarked that the men failed to give
notice that tbey would strike. They say the
demand of the committee was in Itself a notice
that tbey would come out if it was not com
plied with. The company has not taken action
as it does not kwow as yet what tbe demand of
tbe men as a general thine is, but will know
when the committee calls on them to-day to
make the demand which was decided on at a
meeting held in Palace Rink yesterday after
noon. The meeting was largely attended, and the
building was so crowded that a portion
of the floor gave in. It was decided that the
men will ask the company to give tbem an ad
vance ot 10 per cent in tbe threading floor and
15 per cent in the lap weld departments, with
tbo restoration of the 6 per centtaken off of the
men who make less than 1 50 per day. A com
mittee of three was appointed to call on Gen
eral Manager John H. Flagler at 9 o'clock this
morning and make the demand. Tbe commit
tee will then report bis answer to tbe men at a
meeting to be beld in tbe rink at 1 r. jr. The
men are not organized, but will stick together.
The company says, "trade is dull ana prices
are at the lowest notch, while profits are very
small. The mills are full of work, but it is no
indication of a flourishing trade. A large con
cern of this kind must run full or not at all,
and is of ten kept in full when all tbe product
is In the warehouses, and tbe size of tbe plant
in connection with the full operation, often
enables the company to make jblpe and sell it
when other concerns cannot Were it not for
tbe advantace in this respect and the desire of
the company to keep the plant running and the
crews together, the mills would be run in good
times and would be closed down in dull times,
as other pipe mills are operated."
The company also states that it has 51.000,000
worth of pipe in stock, which was made in the
winter, and for which there is no demand to
day. ANOTHEB STRIKE ON.
Clark Bros. Failed to Keep Their
Promises With the Men.
The strike of the men at the Solar Iron
Works was no surprise. It has been ex
pected for sometime, and the-position of the
firm is said not to be enviable. The strikers
intend to join the Amalgamated Association
. One of the men sized up the situation as fol
lows yesterday: "There has been considerable
dissatisfaction among tbe workmen since the
last strike. Mr. Clark, to induce men to go to
work, made them many promises, which he has'
"Some of these promises pertain to positions,
but tbe main difficulty is a question of wages.
This is the essence of tbe trouble, and the
strike will leave the firm in bad shape."
The condition of affairs in tbe strike has not
changed since yesterday morning. The only
Sart of the mill in operation is the puddling
epartment where about 85 colored men are
employed. The strikers said last night that the
pnddlers would join tbe strike and tbe Amal
gamated Association to-day. This will throw
the whole mill idle.
A large meeting was held last night in Freck
er's Hall, corner Butler and Thirty-eight
streets, by the strikers. President Weihe was
present Fifty-five members were reinstated
in Victoria Lodge No. 35, Amalgamated Asso
ciation. Thev were in nart men who broke the
last strike at these mills.
SOME CANDIDATES NAMED

The members of -the Amalgamated Asso
ciation are beginning to look, around for
good material to fill the vacancies that will cer
tainly occur. A number of names have been,
mentioned, but several have declined to accept

ALL QUIET AT DUQUESNE.,
Tbe Mill Sons and the Strike Will Probably

There were no new developments in the
sitnation at Duquesne yesterday. The
strikers to the number of 300 held a meeting
in the morning, but the proceedings were
Four carloads of rails were shipped yester
day, and members of tbe firm claim that the
strike is broken. All tbe departments of the
mill seem to be running in f ulL There is very
little excitement and no. indication of any
trouble around tbe works.
It was reported last night that WnuDunn,

stock on band than there has been for three
years past or will be at tbe end of the fire.
President Bodlne's report shows that on April

which is 131,000 boxes more than July 1, 1&38.
Reports from different factories all over the
country show very little accumulation of
stocks. The workers do not anticipate an offer
of a reduction in wages.

COVENANTEES WANT TO MAKE DP.
Tie Amendment, Say be the Means of
Amalgamating Both Churches.
THE DOIflGS OF THE GU5EBAL BIH0D.
There is a strong probability that the two
factions of tEe Reformed Presbyterian
Church, known as the "Synod" and the
"General Synod" will be reunited, after
a separation of 66 years. A committee of
three members of each Synod, has had
several conferences. A number of schemes
have been suggested to bury the hatchet
and restore peace and harmony within the
There is a strong undercurrent of senti
ment developing among the younger mem
bers of the General Synod, or "the old
Covenanters," as they are called in the
East. One of the latter, Eev. John Gra
ham, who is now in attendance at the Gen
eral Synod at Tarentnm, was formerly a
member of the seceders. Ho came from
Rochester, N. Y., and,
UPON- SWINGING OVKB
to the "Generals," ho became pastor of the
First Church In Philadelphia. A nnmberof
his former brethren want to follow his ex
ample and amalgamate with the other faction.
In 1833 the Reformed Presbyterian Church
split, at a meeting held in the old Eleventh
Street Church, upon the site of which now
stands a minstrel theater. The seceders, or
Covenanters, would not allow their men to
vote upon any questions relating to the State
or National Government The General Synod
took the opposite view, and said it was a duty
they owed to their State and Church to take
part in all elections. Some of tbe Covenanters
now want to vote upon the prohibitory amend
ment. Claiming that it Is a rie-htenns ransfl.
For this reason Some of them would like to
come back to the fold again. Their reason
for not voting is that God is not in the Consti
tution of the United States.
At the meeting in Tarentnm the committee
on reuniting the other branch reported prog
ress, ana asseu to De continued.
Rev. H. H. Brownell, of Vinton, Iowa, was
unanimously elected Moderator. Rev. J. Y.
Boice, of Philadelphia, was re-elected Stated
Clerk, and J. H. Kendall, pastor of the Taren
tnm church, assistant Rev. Dr. Miller, of
Saltsburg, and Rev. a-R. Kerr, of Pittsburg,
pastors of evangelical churches at Tarentnm,
were invited to seats as consultation members.
Owing to financial difficulties tbe trustees were
unable to settle in regard to the legacy left the
church by Mrs. Elizabeth Wylie.
In the afternoon Rev. David Steel, D. D.,
conducted the devotional exercises. Tho
standing committees were then announced.
The matter of title to church property in
Xenla, O., was referred to the Board of Church
extension, with power to prosecute the claim
of the church to the property.
Monday evening was fixed as the date to dis
cuss the prohibitory amendment. The people
of all tbe other churches In the city will be in
vited to be present The "General Synod" will
insist upon every member of the church voting
upon this question.

BISHOP TUIGG DYING.
Ho Will Likely b Succeoded by Father
Wall, of This City Bishop Phelnn and
Two Dioceses, One In Alio.
Bishop Tuigg, of this diocese, is dying at
his home in Altoona. The Bishop has been
ill for many years; but his sickness is so
serious at present that it was decided to
summon Bishop Phelan, coadjutor, to his
bedside. Tbe last rites of the church were given
to tbe dying bishop yesterday, as his chance for
recovery seems less hopeful than at any time
during his long illness.
It was reported vesterdav that in the e.vent
of Bishop Tuigg's death, tbe Pittsburg and
Allegheny dioceses would be reunited, and
tbat Bishop Pbelan would be placed in charge.
Several of the leading members of the Ro
man Catholic Church in this section were seen
yesterday and said: "The dioceses will not be
reunited. What Rome has done Rome cannot
undo, the Holy Father being infallible. This
diocese was divided, and will remain divided.
Bishop Phelan is Bishop of a diocese in Asia
Minor and is Bibop Coadjntor here. If Bishop
Tuigg dies, we believe tbat Father Wall will Do
made BishOD of the Plttsbnrir diocese, and
Bishop Phelan of the Allegheny diocese."
The latent reports received of tho condition
of Bishop Tnlgg were tbat he is in an uncon
scious condition, and cannot live more than a
day or two.

The directors of the Union Line Street
Bailway Company are anxiously awaiting
their charter for the bridge they intend to

It has been almost definitely decided to have
a cable operate tbe line and, as the Suspension
Bridge Company refuses to have a cable laid
over their structure, the new bridee will be a.
necessity. Work will be commenced as soon as
the charter arrives.

The May Olasic Festival. '
It is a significant fact that at the ap
proaching great May Festival they nse only
the famous Steinway pianos. All the othe'r
piano makers were crazy to get their make'
of instrument into the Music Festival, bat
the high artistic character of the performers
and the elevated style of their music Con
vinced the managers that none bnt the Stein
way Grand could possibly fill the bill. At
the late Gilmore concert the Steinway
Grand, also, was the only instrument which
Mr. Gilmore thought fit to be nsed in grand
concerts. This fact must be highly gratify
ing to the thousands of possessors ot the
Steinway and also to the Messrs. H. Kleber

tbem in onr section of country.

so highly favored, is to have an additional
element of prosperity.

age belonging only to manufacturers of
specialties, and which insures better wages
and steadier work than could be otherwise
enjoyed. The glassware manufactured by
this company will be such as is nsed in the
construction of electrical appliances and
fixtures of various kinds, and the probable
extent of its business may pe inferred from
the fact that there is but one other glass
works of the .kind in the country, and the
Westinehouse Electric Company, which
alone uses over 10,000 glass globes for incan
descent lights each day, will undoubtedly
give the new concern the benefit of its entire
