THE PITTS33URG DISPATCH, WEDNESDAY MA"T 22, 1889.
against 28 for Quay. The Magee claim
brakes it 58 against 22.
From start to finish, the contest in the
Sixth Legislative district was the most ex
citing on record. There was a continual
uproar. The Magee men claim that on
Monday night they had enough delegates to
insure them 4,500 votes. Quay's workers,
lowever, got out among them and by yes
terday morning it looked lor a time as
though they had captured enough to insure
the election of the ten Quay committee
HOW SOME THINGS TVEBE DONE.
According to the Magee men delegates
elected and pledged to Magee had been cap
tured for Quay from the Fifth district of
2forth Payette, Beltzhoover borough, "West
Elizabeth, the second precinct of Findlay
township and the second precinct of Lower
St. Clair. The organization of the conven
tion, however, was captured for Magee, who
i gained by the contest in the First district of
Findlay township, the Quay man, Barton,
being declared ineligible because he was an
officer of the election board, counted the
votes and signed his own credentials. Mr.
Hood, who was the contestant, was given
lis seat The presence of Mr. Flinn and
his lieutenants prevented, they say, any fur
ther tampering with their delegates, and
won them the committee men. It was
claimed that the delegate elected in "West
Elizabeth was for Magee, but was forced by
the threats of his employer to turn his cre
dentials over to a Quay man. The latter
was an employe of Mr. Haufiman,
and that gentleman was on the floor
as a spectator. Ed Hayes got an idea

cgate to vote for Mr. Magee, and made some
remarks that led to a personal encounter be
tween himself and Hon. Andy Robertson,
which was checked by friends. John S.
Bobb caused some excitement by making
uncomplimentary remarks to Secretary
Murray while the "West Elizabeth matter
was up, and the latter leaped from the stage
and struck Mr. Bobb Friends separated
them, and Mr. Murray returned to his
duties on the stand. It was claimed that
the gentleman who held the credentials
from West Elizaboth had not lived in the
precinct the necessary length of time, and
as it looked j utt then as though "West Eliza
beth might decide the matter the delegates
moved in a body toward the stage and ges
ticulated and talked all at one time.
The Chairman seemed the only man in
the room who had control of himself. The
confusion gave him an opportunity to see
whether "West Elizabeth wonld defeat bis
side, and as soon as it was discovered it
wouldn't the little irregularity in the dele
gate's case was overlooked, and he was ad
mitted. Neville township also caused
something of a breeze. A gentleman named
Shenk was present claiming he was elected,
but had been refused credentials. His case
was not considered. It was said he was run
ning as a Magee delegate and was supported
by the Magee men, but just as the polls
closed laughed and remarked: "I've fooled
you; I'm for Quay." The Magee men on
the board refused to stay fooled, and ret
e ponded: "Then go to Quay and get your
credentials." Mr. bhenc didn t get his
credentials from Mr. Quay or anybody else.
CHATS WITH THE CHIEFTAINS.
After news of bis victory in the Sixth
Legislative district reached C. L. Maiee
yesterday there was no happier man in the
county of Allegheny. He spoke freely of
the manner in which the opposition had at
tempted to capture delegates by promises
and by threats, and remarked: "For peo
ple rnnning on a purity platiorm they have
more gall than any I ever saw." Mr. "Flinn.
who had just arrived from personally superin
tending the Magee contest in the Sixth Legis
lative Convention, looked equally happy as he
sat beside Ins chief at dinner in the Hotel Dn
quesne. Chairman Von Bonnborst and other
leaders and workers of the Magee side sat at
adjoining tables and discussed the interesting
points of the contest or congratulated each
other on the result

Mr. Bayne explained his apparent defeat in
his own precinct in Bellevue. He said infor
mation had reached him that Mr. Kirker, who
had been put up as a delegate in his interest
was pledged to Magee, and he considered it
(Prudent to cut up another delegate on Satur
day, but it was then too late. Mr. Bayne
thought a very good showing was made, con
sidering the tactics 6f the opposition, and told
of a case in the Fourth precinct of the Fourth

An Exciting Time in Assembly No. 5 Reso

a Storm of Indication.
The Filth Assembly conventions were
held at City Hall last night. Convention

nated the following named gentlemen for mem
bers of the County Committee:
TV. A. Magee, John Upperman, George Goeser,
.William jucKlnley, rump Dressing, Jr., Will

Nelson V. Heed, Dr. C. Evans. Thomas Glltespje,
James Fltzsmmons. Max Leslie, J. H. Seaman,
Samuel D. Warmcastle and James P. Dahlem.
The majority of the delegates voted the lists
which were lettered "A" and "B" respectively,
straight, except Hugh Fleming, who voted the
"B" ticker, but substituted the name of Mc
Kinley for Shangle: John A. Reed substituted
the name of A. CI Robertson for bis own; J. P.
Madden substituted the name of George
Qosser for John Shangle on his ticket
When the rote was completed and counted Jt
showed that 17 delegates had voted the "B." or
Quay faction, ticket, against 73 who voted the
ticket of the home rulers. According to the
votes represented tho result wasOQuay,
2.2S0 39-56: Magee, 8,6337-50; necessary' to a
choice. G.M1 8-56.
Mr. John A. Reed was walked upon by the
Home Rulers for introducing the following res
olution: THE TEXT OP TROUBLE.
Resolved, That this convention Is opposed to the
use ofthe employes of the Department of l'ubllc
Safety In interfering with the free choice in the
elections held by the people for city, county and
State officials, or delegates to any city, county or
fatate convention. Not that we object to all or any
one of ttrese men expressing their Individual pre
ferences at the polls, hut the use of them under
authority of the city officials Is inimical to the best
and dearest Interests of the people and subversive
of good government And this convention ear
nestly protests against the use of the said employes
In the future as In the past
Mr. Hoger said the resolution was an lcsnli
to any member of the department Mr. W. A.
Magee called for a single Instance In which
coercion had been osed upon any employe of
the city to compel him to vote. He challenged
Mr. Reed several times to name a man, but the
latter would not do so, and the resolution -was
withdrawn. Mr. John Black said he knew of
a case where he asked a fireman to vote a cer
tain ticket The man replied that he dare not
do It as he would lose his position.
Alderman Schafer hoped Mr. Reed wonld
withdraw his resolution, "for," said be, "his
faction will be in power very soon now, and
they will want the boys to hustle around and
get votes jnst as we do, and they won'task them
whether the men are employes of the Depart
ment of Public Safety or not. I really nope
the gentleman will withdraw his resolution in
the interest of harmony and the future con
venience of his friends."
Assistant Superintendent of the Fire De
partment Coates said: "Gentlemen, I want it
understood that this convention cannot pass
any resolution that will affect my privilege of
voting. I have worked for tho city for many
years. I have voted for Chris Magee at every
opportunity I had, and will continue to do so as
long as I have a vote, and this convention can't
touch my privileges."
THE BEPLY DIEECT.
Mr. W. A. Magee again took the floor, say
ing: Without Intending any disrespect to the gentle
men who presented this resolution, I must say I
think it Is pnre blather. It don't charge anything,
and although 1 have requested them to do so five
different times the gentlemen have failed to name
a single Instance In which any employe of the city
has done what their resolution insinuates. I have
been In several political fights In this city and
county, but in none or them has anvthlng quite so
mean as this been attempted. Five years ago, In
a political fight talk like this was prevalent all
over the county, .but in the end It was all sifted out
and proved to be. as 1 have denominated this,
blather. Thy don't these gentlemen come out
ralrlvand sauarelv with their accusations and
give this couveution something to fasten upon
aud investigate? 1 think their defeat in this fight
has caused this resolution to be presented, and I
am sorry for it: It's so mean. To say that the po-
000 on the side of what has been styled the 'home
rulers, the men who are opposed to the Interfer
ence of outside parties. They charge us with us
lnf undue Influences, when, in fact they haTe
been peddling promises of patronage all over this
county by the wagon load.
He again challenged anybody to name an in
stance of coercion.
Harry Doyle, of the Twenty-ninth ward,
jumped np and said :
If the gentleman insists upon an instance of the
coercion used upon city employes, 1 will give him
one. I know a man in the Twenty-ninth ward
who came out as a candidate against the city ring
faction. His father Is a turnkey at the Twenty
eighth ward station house, his brother Is a fire
man and bis cousin Is Assistant City Attorney.
Last Friday this cousin called upon him and told
him that Chris Magee wanted to see him. He
went to see Mr. Magee, who asked him If it was
true that he was working for the anti-ring candi
date. He replied that it was, whereupon Mr.
Magee said: "Well, if. Tun don't pull out before
the primaries, off will go the head of your father I"
GROWING WAESIEE AGAIN.
Mr. W. A. Magee jumped to his feet and ex
citedly exclaimed: "That is false! That is
Mr. Doyle repeated his statement in some
what stronger terms, and said: "1 can give his
name if necessary."
The confusion became so great that Chair
man Conners rapped for order. Mr. Hoyer ad
dressed the convention on behalf of Mr. C. L.
Magee, who, he said, bad been attacked during
his absence. Mr. Magee was in the lobby, how
ever, and, said the speaker:
He has directed me to say for him that the man
who says be used the language attributed to him
by the gentleman from the Twenty-ninth ward
falsifies and the statement is a lie out of the whole
cloth. And If the gentleman will meet Mr. Ma
gee personally be will tell him so to bis face In
plainer language than 1 have used.
This ended the discussion, and amid great
confusion the resolution was voted upon and
defeated by a large majority.
At tho Fourth district convention these reso?
lutions were adopted;
ltesolvcd. That the members of the CountvCom
mlttee elected by this convention be Instructed to
change the rules of the Countv Committee to such
a basis as will meet the approval of the Republi
can voters of Allegheny county, regardless of fac
tion. Resolved further. That the Republicans of the
Fourth Assembly district resent the Interference
of outside parties controlling federal patronage,
and pledge themselves lu the future to stand by
fair party rules, fair treatment and home rule.
Similar resolutions were passed in the Eighth
BATNE FIKES DP.

Colonel Bayne and Chairman Andrews
went east last evening. The latter was go
ing to Philadelphia, and departed on the east
ern express, while the former was going to
Washington, and went out on the fast line.
Colonel Bayce was accompanied to the station
by Walter Lyon, Esq., with whom he left in
structions as to the result of the fight When
tbe Congressman spoke of the "borne rule"
victory his eyes snapped, and his utter
ances became so warm that they pierced
the frosty halo which encircled his head and
gave it a very ruddy appearance. When ap
proached by the depot reporters the Colonel
glared at tbe representatives of the "Home
Rule'' journals, and hi remarks about one
paper were somewhat edifying to a wounded
soul, yet there lingered about them a suspicion
oi sarcasm, xo me reporters' inquiry, colonel
Mr. Magee Is a very smart man, and much
smarter than the man who has taken his place. As
a state politician, Mr. Magee has lost his influence
and lost bis grip upon matters. He has been rele
gated to a back seat while bis place Is filled by a
man who Is eager to hold city work. Mr. Flinn
had to step In and take hold of the Helm, In order
not to lose his prestige In politics and the city
contracts, which went to blm on this account.
Mr. Magee feels very sore at his treatment and
has cause to feel so.
I would like to correct tho statement In the
"Horn e Kule" organ to-dav, that there were places
In the revenue office promised to people who went
with us. This Is a falsehood. There was not a
single solitary promise made to any man for a po
sition of any kind. TVe do not do business In that
manner, and our pathway Is not strewn with

for District Attorney, to which office he vaa
elected in 1858, serving three years. He w-.ts
elected Judge in l69by a flattering majority,
serving ten years. In 1879 he was elected a
secondterm without oppositlon;theDemocrats

For District Attorney Arch Rowand practi
cally has the field to himself. to-day. although
there were other candidates for the position m
the early part of the campaign. Archibald H.

A TEIBUTE TO FLINN.
Mr. Ulngeo Vindicates Allegheny's Repub
lican Management Against Outsldo In
fluence and Speaks In the Highest Terms
of Uli Lieutenant General.
"The result of yesterday's conventions,
said Mr. C. L. Magee to a Dispatch re
porter last evening, "is the blowing away
of the lies and. misrepresentations of the
opposition during the canvass. The past man
agement of the party has been such as to make
Allegheny the first Republican county of the
State. Our majority was 20,000 last year, an in
crease of 2,000 over the Blaine ma
jority of 1884. while in Philadelphia
the Blaine majority of 30.000 declined 40 per
cent dwindling to 18,000 for Harrison. Tho
prohibition question and liquor legislation af
fected both counties alike, but Allegheny
being free of factions increased her majority,
while factional differences in Philadelphia are
responsible for the decrease there. There cer
tainly could be no objection on the part of Re
publicans of Allegheny county to the manage
ment which had made theirs the first Republi
can county of the Union. The attempt of out
siders to breaK down tho Republican organiza
tion could only have the, one object, to attempt
to build up personal factions in this county.
This attempt has been defeated byanover
whelmlngmajonty." "Now that the fight is over, what about
the reported -differences betweenMr. Flinn and
"There is no truth whatever. I have realized
for years the sterling capacity and brains pos
sessed hv Mr. Flinn. He is a stronfr man in
every way and I know of no man occupying
any position who has stronger executive capac
ity than he possesses. It ought to be remem
bered that outside the Carnegies and Jones &
Laughlins Mr. Flinn is perhaps the largest em
ployer of labor in Allegheny county. His in
tegrity, political and personal, is of the highest
character. I see the papers have been refer
ring to him as my lieutenant If he is entitled
to any military title in which lieutenant figures
it is to that of lieutenant general, with all the
stars that go with the rank."

EEGISTEE IN BANKEDPTCY.
Mr. Shafer Likely to be Appointed Succes
sor to Major Harper.
The death of Major Samuel Harper has
caused considerable speculation regarding
his probable successor. ' It appears that the
nomination ot a successor would be made by
the Chief Justice of theTJnlted States Supreme
Court and that then Judge Acheson would ap
point tbe man nominated.
It is supposed that Register Shafer will be
selected to wind up Register Harper's busi
ness, as the duties of tbe office require con
siderable stndy to master, and there isn't
enongh money in the remanets to justify a
lawyer of high-priced ability in taking time to
study the intricacies of tbe business of the of

to Mr. Shafer, and be could close his own busi

noto, comment, etc They appeared like a lot
of carpet-baggers, and some not satisfied with
satchels had wooden boxes, in which their tes
timony and other "fixings" were stored. Take
'em all in all they are evidently a keen body of
men, and if an opponent makes a trip he is
lucky if he isn't shot in the wing. It was de
cided that the arguments should close on
Thursday, giving disputants Friday and Satur
day to sum up.
MB. DALZELL OPENED
the argument ior Westinghouse in the fore
noon, and finished his speech abont S P. M. Ho
claimed that Westinghouse owned the Sawyer
Mann patent, and that Edison was an infring
er. In explanation of tbe claims of Wesving
house mnch lamp lore was displayed describ
ing the ineandescent and arc lamps, starting
with the King-Starr incandescent lamp of
1845, tracing the history of these lamps to 1873,
when the Sawyer-Mann lamp was invented, and
thence down to the patent inlSS5. He held
that there was no successful lamp until the
Sawyer-Mann patent was devised. The fibrous
or textile conductor was first used in it, as was
the loop-shaped conductor. He said there was
no question that both parties were using the
same lamp. Mr. Dalzell read from the testi
mony of Mr. Mann, Mr. Broadnax and 'others,
and referred to Mr. Lowery's visit to Mr.
Mann's shop. He claimed that Sawyer-Mann
ante-dated Edison by several months.
Mr. Dalzell's f nnction was more of a general
one than specific, and he spent most of his
time giving a rehearsal of the various proceed
ings and phases of tbe case to date; inter
ference procceuings, vegetame caroons, carbon
filaments, etc., claiming that tho only point
originally at issue was one of priority of inven
tion. At intervals Mr. Thurston and his coad
jutors woold take exceptions, and march up to
the bench. A three-sided powwow wonld ensue
between-Justices Bradley and McKennan on
one side and the opposing counsel on each of
the other sides, the whole being set up like
tenpins in a game of cocked-hat and, between
Sawyer and Mann patents, Edison and West
inghouse claims, tbe whole became so delight
fully confused that only thoso immediately in
terested could follow Or seemed to care a con
tinental; they were merely waiting to see fun.
Mr. Dalzell contended that as between the
contestants the matter was res ad judicata, and
an appeal conld not be taken from the commis
sioner. He claimed that considerable strain
wonld be necessary to allow Edison relief by a
bill in equity, although their Honors had
shown some doubt on that head. The sum of
the whole matter, as claimed by Mr. Dalzell.
was that Sawyer and Mann were tbe patentees
irrespective of all allegations of bribery. '
U.P. Lowrey, Esq.. opened fpr Edison, and
after stating that the gist of all the allegations
of Edison's opponents was that all the princi
ples involved were known and older than his
invention, he referred rather sarcastically to
some admissions to show that at a certain time
in the progress of tbe incandescent lamp the
alleged inventors had not caught Edison's idea
Mr. Lowrey warmed up finally and sailed into
Mr. Dalzell regarding ati insinuation that he
Lowrey, had visited Sawyer fe Mann's shoo'
and, catching then- idea, had imparted it to
Edison. Mr. I.owrey characterized thnimm,.,.
tion against his character as ungentlemanly
and uncaused. He was sorry to be forced to
refer, to it, and would leave the matter to be
tu ujr iuu uuuiu
wetmore arose to maKo an explanation
but Mr. Lowrey refused to allow anything said
in justification, and said ho would not accept
an apology, and asked the Court to refuse to
allow it to be made, as it bad been allowed by
the other side to pass without rebuke. "I know
you, Mr. Wetmore, to be a gentleman, but I
want no apology."
ME. WETSIOEE SUBSIDED.
Mr. Lowrey continued his argument, and
read the testimony ot a number of .witnesses
who. in company with himself. Visited the
workshop of Sawyer & Mann and inspected the
light made by them, and all the testimony
showed it to be from a- straight carbon. Ha
said there was not an honest thread in the
plaintiff's case, and not a fact was brought out
that was not misrepresented. As for himself
he would deal with the case as one of distrust
and one in which you could not go to sleep
with any one'of the facts.
Mr. Lowrey talks very easily and shows com
plete familiarity with tho case. He has evi-
aentiy given ii uiuca siuay.
It is scarce necessary to say, perhaps, that the
suit excites much local interest Not only was
there an extensive sprinkling of members of
the Allegheny county bar in attendance, but
many other people, some of whom it was evi
dent owned Westtngbouse Electrio jjight
The proceedings were not as dry as might
have been expected from. the character of the
case, for the Judges frequently unbent and
passed jokes with the counsel, and the retorts
frequently elicited laughter from the audience.
The arguments will be continued this morn
ing. TILE LAIEES LLE OFF.
Trouble Between Mr. Shaw nnd His Men at
tbe Monongnliela Bouse.
Ii was stated yesterday that the tile layers
and their helpers at work at the Mononga
hela House were on a strike, claiming that
Contractor John Shaw owed tbem J275, and had
reduced wages from 54 to $2 75 per day. It was
also stated that Mr. Anderson, one of the pro
prietors of the hotel, had taken the contract
ont of the hands of Mr. Shaw and had given it
to a man named Young, of Allegheny.
An attempt to find tbe status of the matter
at the hotel failed, as Mr. Anderson was not
about Mr. bhaw was seen last night and at
first declined to say anything, but subsequently
stated that he bad offered to pay union wages
and did not think he should be required to pay
more. He refused to talk At greater length
last night, but said he would have something
further to remark to-day.

with its agent Mr. Clark, to introduce and
show off its talents, proved very interesting to
Messrs. George H. Paine, J. J. Keenan, John

WHAT CAMPBELL-AND MOOEB SAID
On the Subject of Scarcity Among Window
Glass Hen Last Night. '
VACANCIES WAITING TO BE FILLED
With a considerable amount of certainty
it can be stated that the number ot 'English
window glass blowers at Jeannette will
shortly be increased by the arrival of
another lot of foreign workmen from the
Since the operation of the tank system
has proved -to be such a success,
the proprietors ot the Jeannette
works are anxious to have their
plant in full operation as soon as possible,
and, inasmuch as they claim that there are
no window glass blowers to be had in this
country, foreign workmen have to be put
into the vacant positions. There are now
about 400 men at work on the new tank in
Jeannette. Yesterday the flatteners started
to work; to-day the cnttcrs will commence, and
to keep all the men going, blowers are
Mr. George Moore, manager of the Jeannette
works, came purposely to town last night to
have a consultation with' President James
Campbell, of tho Window Glass Workers'
Union, and ask him whether he conld supply
him with any men. A Dispatch reporter
hap'pened to walk into tbe office of the associa
tion at 1503 Carson street when the two gentle
men were closeted together.
During the conversation, which took place
while the reporter was present, Mr. Campbell
CAMPBELL GBOWS FACETIOUS.
"This talk about window glass men being
running around the country by the thousand,
is all nonsense. Our association has lost 23
members by death since the first of January,
and I have now applications for 14 men hi my
possession: but I do not know where to get
them. All the men are at work; there is not
one looking for a job. If I bad a dozen of them,
I could place them within an hour."
Then a spirit of facetionsness seemed to take
hold of Mr. Campbell, and, turning to Mr,
Moore, he said:
"If it were not for the fact that this investi
gation committee over in town were trying to
put me Into the penitentiary. I think I would
ccme out to Jeannette myself to blow glass; but
I suppose you wouldn't give me a job, for fear
the Englishmen might object to me!"
Mr. Moore, while talking on the subject of
scarcity of window glass men. said:
"Well, something has to be done. I have to
get some moro men to run the tank."
"How is it going to-day?" he was asked.
"First rate: the glass Is even finer than yes
terday, and the men are working ahead as if
tuey naa woritea in iront or tne tame ail ot
their lives." ,
"Now, regarding the scarcity of men. Is it
true that there are none to be had in this
MOOBE ADMITS IT.
"Yes, I have come to see Mr. Campbell on
that very subject and, if he cannot help me, I
do not know what to do."
"Are yon expecting any more men from En
gland?" "If we were, wonld it not be said that we
were importing them under contract?"
"No; admitting that the men came of their
own free will, do you think that some more are
"Wnat are we to do? There is a scarcity ot
employes here, and if the men come over,
why, there is nothing wrong in giving them
"Very well. Indeed. The good workman in
solid standing does not say anything. It is only
the man who has come over here as a scab him
self: ho growls. The man who really did come
over here from the old country under contract
he is the one to find fault with tbe arrival of
these men; but a regular blower, in good stand
ing with bis union and his friends, he does not
THE IR02T W0RKEES' SCAIE.
They Won't Accept Reduction1, bat Will
The annual convention of the Amalga
mated Association of Iron and Steel
Workers will be held at New Turner Hall,
beginning Tuesday, June 4, and will be one of
tbe most important gatherings of that body
ever held. Some significant suggestions have
been made by the different lodges, and one of
them will be specially considered. A proposi
tion has been made to make a scale which will
continue for two or three years, but will be
based on the manufacturers' card rate for bar
It is also proposed to change tbe scale In the
steel mills in accordance with with Andrew
Carnegie's ideas: hut bis scale is not accepta
ble, and will not be agreed to by the organiza
tion. The association Is willing to extend the time
of the scale, but will not change it to the sell
ing price of steel, as proposed. They may
make some concessions as far as the manner of
paying tbe men is concerned, but will not ac
cept any reduction on tie present wages.
DOILElN JOHNSTON'S PLACE.
Another VIncennes Dlnn Will Enter tho
Pittsburg and Western Service.
C. E. Doyle, Superintendent, Train Mas
ter and Superintendent of Telegraph, of the
Cairo, Yincennes and Chicago Bailroad, at
Mount Carmel, 111., was yesterday ap
pointed Superintendent of the Pittsburg and
Western, vice J. S. Johnston, resigned. Mr.
Doyle is a well-known young railroad man in
the West, and this appointment to the position
on tbe Pittsburg and Western will no doubt do
much to better organize the transportation de-'
partment of tbe road. Mr. Doyle is one of the
new general managers pupus.
The retiring Superintendent, Mr. Johnston,
has been offered a better position with another
road, .but has not accepted it yet He will take
a rest for several months, and by the end of
that time he will have made up his mind what
he intends to do. His friends say the cause of
his resignation was due to tbe fact of Mr. Mc
Donald being appointed over his head.
Another resignation from the road will prob
ably follow in a few days.
HE WAS ACQUITTED.
master Workman Ross, of D. A, 3, K. of
I.., Not Guilty ot Embezzlement, '
Master Workman Boss, of D. A. 3, K. of
L., who was charged with misappropriation
of funds, has been acquitted. Tbe court tbat
tried him held a doubly secret meeting, which
continued until 4 o'clock yesterday momlng,
when the verdict was rendered.
None of the members of the court would say
anything about the charges until last night,
when it was learned from one of the members
of the order tbat Mr. Ross had been acquitted
of the charge of misappropriating funds, but
tbe chaises of interfering with the trustees
had been sustained. Wbat this means was not
mentioned, and the only inference tbat can be
drawn is tbat he refused to hire a janitor rec
ommended by one of the members or the board.
A representive of this paper saw Mr. Ross
last night but he declined to talk on the sub
ject and would neither affirm nor deny any
thing. He said he did not know what the last
charge was, as he had not heard of it

Colored Non-Union Men Want Their Race

James E. Wilson, a colored employe of
the Solar Iron Works, writes to The Dis
patch, and takes exception to the item pub

colored non-union men there had quit work.
He says they are still working, and propose to
continue doing so until the labor organizations

He says the colored men have everything to

MORE WITNESSES EXAMINED.
Trades Council Continues to Invest That
Importation of Foreign Glass Workers
Still an Issue.
The star chamber session or the Executive
Board of the Central Trades Council of
Western Pennsylvania on the importation
of foreign glass'workers under contract ended
last night Hereafter, if the alleged guilty
parties are willing, the investigation will be
conducted openly. There was a large attend
ance of Knights of Labor and union men at the
investigation in the Knights of Labor Hall last
night, but all were pledged to secrecy.
The only information that President Evans
would give out was that two witnesses had
been examined, but he refused to give their
names. He also declined to give their testi
mony, saying that It wonld possibly be pub
lished some time in the future. The stenogra
pher was present to take down the testimony
in full, and William Breunan, Esq- vvs there
to administer tho oath and, question the wit
nesses. These two witnesses were on the stand for
over an hour each, as tbe investigation did not
close until after 11 o'clock. Mr. Evans was
asked what had been done, but said he was not
authorized to give out any information. He
said, however, that a committee, consisting of
Messrs. R. M. Carr, Wm. Smith and Dennis
Hays, had been appointed to visit the officials
or L. A. 300, K. of L-, at their meeting on Fri
day night to arrange terms mutually satisfac
tory to continue the investigation, open to all.
