the Americas Club, had a little opposition
in the First ward of Verona, bnt it did not
count for much. He, of course, is for Quay.
Isaac Bnnton, of the firm of Joseph
Walton & Co., was singled out as one of
the recipients of an appropriation for the
loss of a boat at the Davis Island dam, and
lost the fourth precinct of the Fourteenth

At 11 P. M. the Sixth Legislative dis

Magee, and 41 precincts remaining to be

The Second and Seventh districts were
conceded to the Quay people. This would

Eighth districts meant a claim of 60 of the

The Mngce Slate Gocn Thronah In One Dis
trict The Qnny Slate Runs Without Op
position In the Second.
The primaries in the first Legislative dis
trict for county committee were the liveliest
ever held and the so-called anti-Quay-Bayne-Eules
people won. The returns
were very much, mixed, that is some dele
gates who were elected said they wonld
vote for the Quay slate and while talking
to the other side pledged themselves to
support their candidates.
John N. 2eet led the side that it is
claimed is opposing Quay and others, and
although there "was a hitter fight against
him he landed a winner with over 500 votes
to spare, and may have as many mere when
the votes are counted in the convention on
A Dispatch reporter had a talk with a
number of delegates who hold enough votes
to elect what was termed in this paper yes
terday as the Magee slate. The other side,
however, claim a victory, but they were not
too confident It was stated early in the
day that if John Neeb was elected he would
be made chairman of the committee
and that he would favor the objectionable
rules. Although this was not correct Mr.
Neeb did not contradict the statement until
after he was fully assured of his election,
when he told a representative of this paper
that he was not a candidate for the chair
manship, would not be a candidate, and
wonld not accept the position if elected.
BOTH SIDES CLAIM IT.
As above stated, both sides claim a vic
tory. Beturns were received at the Health
Office by the Quay "faction, and at the Alle
gheny Central Club rooms by the members
of that organization, all of whom favor the
election of what is called the Magee slate.
Health Officer Bradley at 10 o'clock last
night, said: ""We have won, and the candi
dates who favor the present objectionable
rales are all knocked out." He gave the
following list of winning delegates:
First ward, Magee 2, Quay 4; Third, Magee
S, Quay 8; Fourth, Maeee 5, Quay S; Seventh,
Majjce none, Qnay 3; Eighth, Magee none.
Quay 2; Twelfth, Magee 1. Quayl; Thirteenth,
Mapee none. Quay 2. Total: Magee, 11: Qnay,
23. These delegates have 4,131 votes and 2,056 is
necessary to a choice.
The "Anti-Bule men," as thev prefer to
be called, instead of "Quay men," therefore
claim a big majority for their candidates.
At the headquarters of the other side
there was an exceedingly jubilant assem
blage of men, whose claims were entirely
different from those given above, and are
MR. XEEB'8 CLAIMS.
First ward, Magee 3, Quay 3; Third, Magee 9,
Quay 2; Fourth, Magee S, Quay S; Seventh,
Magee 3: EicUth, Magee 2; Twelfth, Magee 1,
Quay 1; Thirteenth, Mageo 1 and Quay 1, bnt
both votes are forNeeb.
There are several districts that are not
claimed by the Magee faction; but they ex
pect to get others in the convention. 'The
total vote for the Magee slate, which is ap
pended, is z,ooy to 1,002:
First ward. John N. Neeb and D. T. Mulvey;
Third, District Attorney Porter and Henry
Datt: Fourth. Hugh Kennedy and Street Com
missioner William F. Meese; Seventh. Coun
cilman Charles W. Muchlbronner; Eighth,
Councilman George Scbad; Twelfth, County
Detective William C. Langhorst; Thirteenth,
Roundsman T. C. Johnston.
As already -mentioned, five of these names
also appear on both slates, as follows:
Messrs.' Mulvey, Porter, Muehlbronner,
Schad and Johnston.
In the Second district of the fourth ward
Louis Hirst was elected as a Quay delegate,
but will turn his credentials over to Hon.
Chas. "W. Bohison, who is slated for the
chairmanship of the convention by the
Quay faction. In some of the districts a
large vote was polled, and in almost every
case the majority of the winner did not ex
ceed six or seven votes. There were
SOME BIG SURPRISES
in several of the precincts several candi
dates who were never defeated before for
delegates being knocked out Candidates
and their friends were busy all day bring
ing out votes. Many of the persons who
were entitled to a vote did not know an
election was being held until informed by
one of the workers.
The primary in the Second Legislative
district was exceedingly quiet, in fact it
was so quiet that the majority of the people
in it did not know that anything was going
on, and in many of the districts the polls
were not opened at all. In some cases the
delegates had great difficulty in finding the
members of the board to get their creden
tials signed. A "number of the candidates
had their credentials signed within a half
an hour after the polls were supposed to be
open, and after 5 o'clock a voter who wanted
to cast his ballot for some one was unable
to do so.
ONE FIXED SLATE.
In this district the slate is fixed, and it is
an out-and-out Quay one. The delegates,
however, are not all pledged to support the
slate, and it. may be broken before the con
vention is held on Tuesday. The slate is as

B. H. JOHNSTON A qANDIDATE.
Authoritative Announcement From C. C
Dicker, Esq. Why Be, a Republican,
Supports Thl Aspirins' Democrat.
No sooner have the local Bepublicans
settled upon their candidate for District At
torneyArch Eoward, Esq. though, of
course, the formality of nomination is yet
to come, than his Democratic opponent is
practically settled upon. That opponent, it
appears, will be B. H. Johnston, Esq. His
Bepnblican friend, C. C. Dickey, Esq.,
gives the announcement as follows, in an
interview, together with his reasons for
supporting Mr. Johnston and expecting him
to run well:
Mr. R. H. Johnston will he a candidate for
the Democratic nomination. I havo the best
of authority for it I can, say he is a man de
sired by, and will have the practical support
of the bar for tbe position: For the last eight
years we have had a most competent man for
District Attorney W. D. Porter, Esq. The
bar desires to have a worthy successor to Mr.
Porter. During Mr. Porter's last two years
his health has been very feeble, and
be has had to be away from home a
great ileal, especially in the winter,
having to seek a Southern climate.
Dnring all that time, and in fact while here,
he has called noon Mr. Johnston for assistance.
During Mr. Porter's absence Mr. Johnston has
conducted tbe entire easiness of the Criminal
Court For a portion of the time while Mr.
Porter was at home, there have been two
Judges sitting in tho court, and Mr. Johnston
has taken charge of the business before
one of the Judges, thusrelievingMr. Porter of
much of the heavy work of the office. Mr.
Johnston has been so employed with tbe appro
bation of the six Judges of the Court, and be is
invariably called in by them when additional
help is needed to complete the business of the
Mr. Johnston's qualifications for the office
are shown by the fact that as good
a lawyer as Mr. Porter, and our Jndges
havo selected him out of 400
lawyers (although a Democrat), to act during
Mr. Porter's absence. In performing thev
duties of his office he has tried some of the
heaviest cases in tbe county, and been almost
universally successful. He has given satisfac
tion to the Judges, to the Bar, and to the pub
lic having business in tbe courts. The Bar
has yet to hear the first complaint against his
integrity and fairness.
Thn office of District Attorney is regarded fn
the profession as a quasi judicial office, and
next in importance, of all the county offices, to
that of Judge. To administer it properly re
quires as high talent as any employed in the
civil conrts. and the Incumbent should be a
lawyer of experience, good judgment ana equal
disposition; thorough bearing and integrity.
All these qualities Mr. Johnston admittedly
His legal learning extends to the civil side of
the law as well. He was tbe master in the
Hite Natural Gas Company's appeal, a leading
case in limited partnership, where the Conrt of
Common Fleas reversed bim, but the Supreme
Court, reversing tbe court below, reinstated
his report and accepted his view of the law.
'Ho has however, made a special tudy of
criminal law and practice, and probably has
tbe largest practice in tbe Court of Quarter
Sessions except possibly, the Dean of the
Bar, Thomas M. Marshall, Esq.
He is the son of William F. Johnston, for
merly Whig Governor of the State, and, al
thougha Democrat in politics, has been most
thoroughly fair and non-partisan in his conduct
of the office as Mr. Porter's assistant
SOME SAMPLE STBAWS,

tested by both factions. Hugh Elinn, a
relative of "William Elinn, was opposed Dy

Excitement ran high until the polls closed.

THREE DISTRICTS IN DETAIL.
More About tbe Sixth, Seventh and Eighth
and How They Went.
The returns from the Sixth Assembly dis
trict were incomplete, and it was impossible
to get the names of many of the delegates.
However, 27 of the 70 precincts in
the district were reported, as follows:
Beltzhoover, Chartiers, Elizabeth, Green
tree, Knoxville, Mansfield, "West
Liberty, West Elizabeth and the Third

Moon, Stowe and "Union townships. These
districts represent a total of 3,403 votes;
necessary to. a choice, 3,689, and 43 pre
cincts to hear from.'
The returns from the Seventh and "Eighth
Assembly districts were very meager, but
both are claimed by the Magee-Flinn
faction, the Eighth district being claimed
by at I east 1,000 majority.
From tbe Seventh district, Spring Garden
borough, Gleufield borough and Bellevue
boroughs came out lor the "Home rulers,"
while West Bellevue responded for the
Qday faction. Beserve ana Killbuck town

PISTOLS ENOUGH FOR SLAVE DE1YEES
There is at present on a visit to Mr. J. F.
Diffenbacher, the man who gets up the
Pittsburg and Allegheny Directory, a man
80 years of age, who has been personally
connected with a vast amount of the stirring
history of the past 0 years. His name is
George Bye, and his home Shenandoah
county, Virginia. Mr. Bye was married by
Mr. Diffenbacher's father, Eev. J. F. Dif
fenbacher, in Woodstock, Va., S6 years ago,
and might yet, if he didn't give"it away
himself, pass for a hale man of 60, or even
less. The tumult in his life has evidently
had little effect on-his nervous system.
A visit was paid to Mr. Bye at Mr. Dif-
ienbacher's residence at Emsworth, Ft.'
Wayne Bailway, and the principal parts
of his political life were gleaned from him
and from Mr. Diffenbacher, whose' tradi
tional knowledge of his guest's life is almost
co-extensive with that of the interviewed
Mr. Bye was born in Charles county,
Maryland, and was taken by his parents to
Woodstock when he was 3 years old, so
that he is next door to a Virginian. While
he had strong personal liberty leanings as
far back as the candidacy of Birney, Mr.
Bye did not break away from
HIS "WHIG MOOEINGS.
until Martin Van Buren jumped the track
in 1844, having voted for William Henry
Harrison in 1840. In 1852 he voted for
Hale and Julian, and since then has been a
Bepnblican, one of the oldest lu Virginia
and one of the original Abolitionists of that
Mr. Bye's political troubles and active
political life began in 1837, and were
brought about in this wise: At that time
there was much agitation of the slavery
question, and a circular was addressed to
the Woodstock clergymen, asking them to
preach sermons in favor "of coloniza
tion of the gentleman in the wood
pile. Bev. Mr. Diffenbacher was
selected to break the ice, the
intention being to have the Presbyterian
and Methodist preachers follow suit. Mr.
Bye had been active in agitating the mat
ter, and, after Mr. Diffenbacher's sermon
had been delivered, some of the young
chivalry took offense and caused them both
to be indicted by the grand jury. At that
time the denial of the right of
property in slaves was an indictable offense
in Virginia. They were both arrested. Mr.
Diffenbacher gave bail at once, but Mr. Bye
was seven days in jail.
AFEAID TO PU3H IT.
The persecutors, however, were afraid to
push the matter very strongly and Mr. Dif
fenbacher was acquitted in the County
Court, and Mr. Bye's case was sent to a
superior court, where he also was acquitted.
Mr. Bye was arrested several times subse
quently, but generally acquitted, as he had
strong friends among the slaveholders; in
fact he states that his slaveholding neigh
bors were generally his strongest friends.
Mr. Bye's life voyage was, on the whole,
comparatively smooth until 1856, when he
and Judge "Underwood attended the Bepnb
lican Presidental Convention in Philadel
phia. Feeling was so strong in Woodstock
against Jndge Underwood that it was
thought best for him to emigrate, and he
shook the dust of that town from his feet,-!
Alter jur. .Bye returned to woooswck
from the convention'an indignation meeting
was called, at which the County Judge,
John Allen, presided, and Sam Williams,
County Clerk, made a sulphurous speech.
Mr. Bye concluded to brave the wrath of his
opponents, andtook a prominent seat high
np and close to the presiding officer. He
states that his presence had the effect to
tone down, to a considerable extent, some
inflammatory cut-and-dried resolutions.
They, however, condemned him as
A DANGEKOTJS MAN",
and one who had no business in the Bepnb
lican Convention in Philadelphia, as they
said he did not represent the sentiment of
that section of Virginia.
Mr. Bye replied in a Whig paper to the
arraignment a paper published in Bock
inghani stating that he represented himself
ana taose wno agreea witn mm, ana at tne
same time intimated that the Whigs, who

AGAINST TltE TEST1BULE.
One Railroad Man U Opposed to Its Uso on
"While the vestibule on passenger cars is
recognized as a big improvement, yet some
objections can be urged against it," said a
railroad official yesterday, "I am continu
ally looking out for trouble and how to get
out of it. In case of a serious wreck the
passengers are imprisoned and there is no
easy exit for them. Besides in the summer
time the vestibuled trains are hot and
"For winter travel there is nothing finer;
but as for myself Lalways avoid a vesti
buled train whenever I can.
"It is claimed by those who recommend
the vestibulethat the danger from collisions
is lessened, since, when the air is turned on,
the entire train is practically a solid batter
ing ram and will stand considerable force
applied at either end. This is in a
measure true. The buffer at the top and
bottom of the car strengthens the coach and
Brevents if from wobbling. For this reason
.i vestibuled train is the cosiest'tn ride in.
iht is wItit- tha mnni,, ., ,,
"But I tell you I wouldn't like to be in a
vestibuled car for all that in a lively colli
sion. The Chicago limited has collided
with other trains twice; but in each instance
it was a lucky accident, and little damage
was done. I would rather ride in a common
car in the summer time than be baked in a
fancy vestibuled train."
Superintendent Fatton Declci That he Will
be Transferred to the Slain Line.
The resignation of Superintendent John
son of the Pittsburg and Western was no
surprise to some railroad men while others
were astonished when they first heard of it.
Tiro theories are given to account for his
action. One that Mr. Johnson felt that he
had not been treated squarely when Mr.
McDonald was put over him as general
manager. The other is that Mr. Johnson
was placed there through , the influence
of T. M. King. Mr. Spencer, the old
President of the Baltimore and Ohio,
and Mr. Johnson do not agree very
well, and since Mr. Spencer left the
Baltimore and Ohio he has been asso
ciated with Drexel, Morgan & Co. This
banking house hold most of the bonds of the
road, and it is believed by some that Mr.
Spencer is responsible for Mr. Johnson's
It is generally supposed that no suc
cessor will be appointed,, but that Manager
McDonald will do the work.
Superintendent Patton laughed heartily
yesterday when asked if it was true, as re
ported, that he would be tranferred to the
main line and Mr. Johnson would take his
place here. He denied itmost emphatically,
and said he had heard nothing about it. He
thought the story had originated in the
cranium of some reporter.

The Prosecutors Again Refuse to Hoke the
0THEKS SAI IT IS A POLITICAL PAECE
The Central Trades Council of Western
Pennsylvania has not only refused to liy
the investigation of the charges against
President Campbell, of the Window Glassj
Workers' Association, open to the public,
but they have decided that not one word of
the proceedings shall he divulged. At their
meeting last night another veil of secrecy
was thrown around the star chamber inves
tigation and any member of the council who
is known to divnlge any part of the trial
will be expelled from the organization.
The meeting last night was largely at
tended, especially by those who are nrose
cuting the charges. The only business
transacted the entire evening was to discuss
the investigation. The few members who
wish to see a fair and impartial trial tried to
pass a motion to admit the representatives
ofUhe press. The matter was bitterly op
posed, and upon being put to a vote was de
feated by 23 to 8. The delegates from one
of the strongest organizations represented in
the Council gave notice that they would

At the meeting Tuesday night next Pres
ident Evans will be placed upon the stand,
and he will be asked to make good his state
ment that L. A. 300 had refused to indorse
Mr. Campbell. The question of Homer
McGaw spending his own money to prose
cute Campbell will also come up. This
statement has been made, but in the opin
ion of the majority of delegates in the
council McGaw is seeking cheap notoriety.
So far as we have been able to discover
there is a we'll laid plot on foot to pnt
Campbell in jail. The testimony so far
produced shows that spite work is at the
bottom of the whole matter, and they want
to put Campbell in tbe penitentiary, rather
than discover a violation of the contract
labor law. The evidence does not show that
there is the least suspicion attached to
THE MOST IMPORTANT WITNESS
they counted on was John Phillips, Sr., who
is a welltknown malcontent in the Window
Glass Workers' Association. He said that
while he was abroad, he was only separated
one day from Campbell. He never heard
the latter mention a word abont a scarcity
of men here and any intention to bring for
eigners to this country. Another peculiar
feature of the investigation, is the part the
American Flints are taking in it. They have
no representation in the counci,yet thgir two
highest officers are partly conducting the
trial. Their secretary did nearly all the
questioning. The testimony was so mter-

of the printers, McGaw issued a circular
antagonizing Hopkins, who was a Demo

saw him dragging their fight into politics,
they made it warm for him. He has never
denied that it was worth something to him
to issue the circular.

A mass meeting of about 300 miners was
held Friday night at the mines of the Suer

Shaner's Station on the B. & O. B.B., for
the purpose of considering the scale recently

To theillners ofWestern Pennsylvania:
Whekeas. The operators and miners of the

miners of this district; therefore be it again
Resolved, That we, the miners of Suer Gas
Coal Company and Blythe's mines, ask that all
miners elect delegates to meet in convention in
Pittsburg, May 29, to take action on the refer

Resolved, That we ''urge on all miners,
whether they have a company store or not, to
have a delegate present, as it is In the interest
of all miners to be represented.
Resolved, That we urge on all, organized or

Labor Leaders Who Think Jast the Oppo
site of Worthy Foreman Wheat.
As stated yesterday, Master Workman
Boss, of D. A. 3, K. of L., says that not
more than 6 per cent of tbe Knights will
vote for the prohibition amendment Presi
dent Smith, of the American Flint Glass
Workers' Union, in speaking of the atti
tude of the members of that organization on
the the subject, said he did
not believe that more than 1 per cent
would vote for the amendment. He said
he had talked to quite a number of members
ot the association, many of whom are tem
perance men, and be has not yet met one
who has said he would vote for the amend
ment. Secretary Martin, of the Amalgamated
Association of Iron and Steel Workers, was
asked how the members of that organization
would likely vote, but said he preferred not
to 'say anything on the subject. Hei ad
mitted, however, that but few votes for the
amendment would come from his associa
tion. They May Surrender Their Charter.
The Stewards' Assembly, No. 10,893, of
the K. of L., will likely surrender their
charter and leave the order. This assembly
has not held a meeting since January, and
the Master Workman issued special call
for a meeting to be held, yesterday. Only

Carnegie, Phippa & Co. dV not
cause any excitement among the
members of the Amalgamated Asso

trouble and treat the offer as a mere bluff jon
the part of the firm. Secretary Martin says
this is the time when manufacturers
begin to offer reductions to their meu".
There are about 3,000 men employed at the
Homestead mill, and 2,300 of the skilled
workmen are stanch members of the Amal

has seven lodges in Homestead, and they
are all in good condition and'in good finan
cial shape. It wonld be a very difficult
matter to secure as many skilled men to
take their places; in fact, the leaders claim,
it is impossible. .
The men are therefore not worrying over
the matter and expect an amicable adjust
ment of the differences. In speaking
of the sliding scale proposed
bv Mr. Carnegie yesterday
Secretary Martin said he favored the propo
