'Colonel Quay said:
REGARDING THAT RUMOR.
"While I was in "Washington I heard it
Inmored that charges of offensive partisan
ship had been preferred against your post
master, Mr. Larkin. Did any of your re
porters hear anything about the .charges
here? I do not know that they have been
made, but only heard it stated."
"Is it not regarded as pretty near lime for
'the President to do something about the
offices in this city? His slowness in the
, postoffice matter is said to be wearing on the
patience of certain Republicans here," sug-
' gested the reporter.
. kf "I do not know what the President intends to
do, as I have bad no conversation with him on
' that subject. "Whether he will displace the
- present incumbents on the anniversary of the
date ot their appointment or date of their con
firmation, I cannot say. I understand, how
ever, that Mr. Larkin has but a few months to
Eerve, until the anniversary of the date of his
confirmation; and he may not be removed un
til then. If the charges have been preferred
'against him, however, theT were probably made
on account of their being no other Immediate
way to get him removed. As I understood It,
the charges were not for any mismanagement
of the postoffice, but for partisan actions while

"I 'see it stated that it would be a good
scheme to try the Crawford county plan of
voting direct for candidates, in county elec

tried here, about 18 years ago; and, on account
of the many opportunies for fraud that it gave
both parties, the plan was given up. At Be

Postmaster Larkin, a reporter interrogated
Mr. C. L Magee, and his able lieutenant,

"I have not beard anything about such

OSE OF THE VEBY BEST.
"The latter has made one of the best post
masters we ever had in this city, and I do not
see where there could be any ground for
charges. The only trouble with him was, that
he did not remove Republicans fast enough to
Euit one faction of the Democrats."
Mr. Von Bonnhorst said: "There are 62 Re
publicans still in the postoffice, and if any
- charges were preferred they were backed by
Mr. Larkin's own people of the opposing fac
tion. He was conscientious in the discharge of
his duty, and would not profane his office by
removing people without cause."
John O'Leary, one of the Postmaster's near

Yesterday The Literary Campaign.
The first signs of active work by the
Allegheny County Brewers' Association
against the prohibitory amendment were
shown yesterday, when the work of the dis
tribution of campaign literature on the
streets was begun. At the headquarters of
the association, ton Fourth avenue, there
are thousands of circulars, pamphlets, etc,
which will be sent out by mail and dis
tributed by hand until the day of election.
A regular meeting of the association was
held yesterday. It was decided to send
eight delegates to the National Convention of
Brewers, which will be held at Niagara Falls
June 5. Who the delegates will be is to be de
cided at the next meeting.
An important feature of the National Con
vention will be the effort to be made by the
Pittsburg brewers to have that body recognize
the coming State election and make it a na
tional issue. The necessity of contributing
heavily to the campaign fund will be placed
before the minds ot the brewers all over the
country. While the State association has lots
of money to carry on the work. It needs more,
and will not be backward about saying so. The
active workers wish to give prohibition such a
setback that It will not only be killed forever
in this State, but all over the country. To do
this they will require aid .from the national
The retail liquor dealers are also making
extra efforts to raise money for the campaign.
All day yesterday a committee of four were out
in a carriage soliciting money from the saloon
keepers. The members of the committee were

every liquor dealer and saloon keeper in the
county and ask them to contribute to the cam
"It would be supposed thatthe saloon keepers
who were fortunate enough to receive license
would contribute heavily to the fund, but such
is not the case. While the committee were out
yesterday.the carriago drew up in front of awell
known Smithfield street saloon. The proprie
tor saw the carriage and immediately got "out
oftho road." After the committee had de
parted, the saloonkeeper, whose receipts will
probably amount to 200 a day, said:
"I can't afford to give those fellows any
money. Let them go to some of the big whole
sale liqnor dealers, who arc making money. A
little saloon like the mine can't be expected to
come down with the stuff," etc.
It was rumored last evening that the retail
liquor dealers had considerable trouble getting
money, and that nnless the saloon keepers come
up with the cash there will be a bomb burst in
the camp of the liquor element within a few
days. It has been supposed all along that the
people who are fighting prohibition had plenty
of money: but a saloon keeper who claimed to
know said this was not true

A message was received from Pittsburg this
evening stating that Miss Nellie HollowaT, the
young lady who disappeared from her home two
weeks ago and for whom relatives have been
searching the entire county, had been found at
the home or Father Uolilngcr, a faith cure priest
on Troy mm Allegheny. Mrs. John E. Boyle,

to-night to bring her home.
Inasmuch as it was thought that this referred
to the girl who some time ago mysteriously
disappeared from her home, a visit was paid

asked whether a girl by the name of Nellie
Holloway had been to see him, he said:
"I cannot tell. ' There are every day about
500 people here who come to see me at my office,
but I do not recall a girl by. such a name. The
fact is I never ask persons their names. I have
no time for that. Of course, it is possible that

CAN'T FIGUBE IT OUT.
The Business Tux on Booze Will be Short,
and Cannot bo Spliced.
The business assessments of the city are
about completed. Owing to Judge White's
raid on the saloons, the amount of revenue
from this source will be considerably curtailed,
and as the Finance Committee had not con
sulted with His Honor when it made Its esti
mate of receipts, the budget is likely to be
somewhat awry this season.
Though It is supposed that receipts from 93
saloons will be greater than from any 93 of last
year, yet it is difficult to figure out any method
by which to collect the same tax from 93 as was
gotten from several hundred last year.
At best this business tax is an uncertain
quantity. 'While some people are taxed to the
full, there are instances where the assessors
are in the dark, and can't find matches. Some
years aso one man whose business was rated at
$65,000, confessed that be must do 300,000 worth
of trading to make expenses.
UNDER NEW LAWS.;
.A Batch of Street Ordinances Resent to the
A special meeting of the Committee on
Public Works was held yesterday afternoon,
the special orderof business beingthe consid
eration of a large number of ordinances for the
improvement of streets which have been re
ferred to Councils by the Board of Viewers
previous to the enactment of the Morrow street
bill of May. 1SS9.
The new bUl did not affect these ordinances
but as they had been drawn up under the
street act of 1887, tho constitutionality of which
has been questioned, it was thought advisable,
to prevent the possibility of trouble In the
future, to call them back and start them over
again from the committee. The action was
effected by a motion of President Holliday that
the ordinances be altered to conform with the
new law and returned to Councils with the
affirmative recommendation of the committee.

Window Glass Manufacturers and
Workers May Agree to Continue
THE PEESEMT SCALE OP PRICES.
The Western Glas3 Association Hold a Meet
ing in This City.
TKADE FAIR AND PE0SPECTS BRIGHT
One of the largest'meetings of the West
ern Window Glass Manufacturers held
since the big strike occurred yesterday at
the Monongahela House. Almost every
member of the association was present, and
all the important lactones were repre
sented. The object of the meeting was to
discuss the condition of trade, wages for the
next fire, shut down and the appointment
ol a wage committee.
Thomas D. Catlin, of Ottawa, 111., Pres
ident of the Association, was in the chair,
and William Loeffler, of this city, was
Secretary. The meeting was a secret ope,
as usual, and the members had but little to"
say about the proceedings.- The morning
was occupied in an informal discussion on
the condition of affairs. At 2 o'clock the
convention adjourned for dinner. In the
THE TVAOE COMMITTEE
was appointed, and is as follows: James
Chambers, C. W Phillips and William
Loeffler, of Pittsburg; Thomas D. Catlin, of
Ottawa, III.; W. T. Gray, of Zanesville, O.,
andD. C. Coolman. of Ravenna, O. These
men, with but one or two exceptions, have
bandied the wage question for years. They
were given full power to act, and the commit
tee will meet the workers' wage committee
some time in July, and discuss and arrange, if
possible, a scale of wages satisfactory to both
sides for the next tire.
At the close of the convention last evening,
several members were asked what had been
done, and all said that they had merely held an
informal discussion and annointed aware com
mittee. They denied that there had been any
discussion of tbe tank system, tho importation
of foreign blowers, or wages for tbe coming
Mr. Chambers was present, and at tbe close
came downstairs smiling as if he was perfectly
satisfied with the result. He is tbe only mem
ber, of the organization operating a tank fur
nace. It has been stated thathe might pull
out of the association, but this is not at all
likely. Every person present seemed to bo
pleased over the result of the gathering.
President Catlin, in speaking of the condition
ot trade and the prospects to a Dispatch re
porter last evening, said: "The trade is very
fair at present; and tbe outlook for the next
fire is bright,
NO EABLIEB SHUT DOW2T.
"The convention did not decide to close the
factories earlier than usual, and most of them
will continue In operation until June 30. There
are no indications of trouble on' the wage
question. The tank process was not discussed
in the convention, and I do not care to say any
thing on that subject.".
Notwithstanding the encouraging repots of
tbe window glass trade, it was learned last
night that more glass was sold during the pres
ent fire than ever before, and prices are fair.
Another fight will likely be made on tbe manu
facturers who are not in the association, and an'
effort will be made to close up tho "mushroom'!
factories; that is factories that have sprung up
during the past year or two, where the pro
prietors paid nothing for the land and were
furnished with free fuel.
Two years ago, when the workers received
an advance in wages, it was given on condition
that none of the members of the workers' or
ganization would work for any manufacturer
who did not belong to the association. The
agreement had tbe effect of forclnc almost all
into the organization, when prices were main

but tbe azreement was not, and there are sev

TROUBLE AT TWO HWiIS.
Amalgamated Association Executive- Com
mittees Kept Busy Yesterday.
Tbe headquarters of the Amalgamated
Association was crowded with ironund steel
workers all afternoon yesterday, and the
Executive Committees of both divisions of the
First district held investigations. The first
was held in the private room by the committee
ot the Second division. They were investi
gating the trouble at the Wayne Iron Works.
This mill is closed down pending a settlement
of the trouble.
After several witnesses had been examined a
committee was appointed to wait on the firm
and discuss the matter. They were given power
to settle if possible. The committee visited the
works, but could not find any members of the
firm, and will make an effort to see them to
dav. The trouble in the First division may lead to a
strike at tbe Fifteenth street mill of Oliver
Bros. & Phillips. A hammerman was dis
charged and appealed to the Execu
tive Committee. The body met
and beard the case and examined
several witnesses. Mr. D. B. Oliver was asked
to be present and was with the committee lor
fully two hours explaining the .matter. When
he retired the matter was discussed at length
and an evening session held. The result of the
deliberations on the matter could not be

A. SI. Swartz, special agent of the build

penters are about to split in a fight between
the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and
the K. of L. carpenters. Mr. Swartz asserts
that there is not a K. of L. carpenter in the
county, all of them being in the brotherhood.
Some years ago there was an assembly of car
penters here, but it was absorbed by tbe
brotherhood. There aro some Knights in the
latter organization, but they are men who have
worked at other trades.
There are now from 15 to 20 unions of the
brotherhood in Allegheny, with a membership
of over 3,000. Mr. Swartz also said that P. J.

Cat Nail Slannfnctnrers Can Now Sell AH of
The Cut Kail Association, representing
14 Ohio Valley mills, met in called session
at Wheeling yesterday afternoon for the
purpose of taking action on the notice given
theLaBelle Mill in April last of Us Intended
withdrawal from the pool unless certain modi
fications in the existing arrangements and re
strictions were not conceded. The LaUelle has
been a large seller or nails since the organiza
tion of the pool, and generally has around
amount to pay into the fund each month in tbe
shape" of 10 cents per keg on the excess of sales
over and above its allotment.
This monthly contribution became, as It
seems, unpopular with the management of the
LaBelle, and hence notice was given to tho
pool of its intended withdrawal. It was to de
vise ways and means looking to the preserva
tion of the pool that yesterday's session was
called, and there was a vast amount or debate
as to the situation of the trade and tbe kind of
remedies needed for its unsatisfactory condi
tion. Tbe result of the conference was that
tbe 10 cents per keg feature of tbe pool was
suspended for the present, and each mill can
now market its own product without that re
striction. Manufacturers say there is a fair-amount of
orders, and that prices would improve but for
some recent sales ot some two or three mills in
the West outside of tbe association, notably
the mill at Belleville, 111., and the one at Terre
Haute. They further say that- it is folly to
attempt to sell nails at the prices made by
these concerns! and that even these mills will
not repeat their recent sales but will close
down, and that it was in preparation to close
down that they sold their stuck on hand.
They also deprecate the idea of surrendering
all tbe possibilities for the good of their pool
in order to meet pricess that do not repay cost

The Board of Viewers Hear tbe Property
Owners as to Widening-.
The Board of Viewers accorded a hearing
yesterday morning to property 'owners on
Diamond alley, in regard to the proposition
to widen that thoroughfare. It was an informal
gathering Intended more to give the board some
data to work upon. The members of tbe board
were anxious to get what they considered
reasonable figures, so they could make their
report to Councils.
Many of the property owners stated their op
position to the widening and others favored it.
Major Neeley, who represented the Citizens'
National Bank, objected, and Mark Watson,
representing tbe Exchange Mational Bank, and
Charles Meyran, in the interest of George
Relneman, favored the improvement if it was
not too costly. John S. Lamble, representing
the estate of Isaac Craig, thought the property
was worth about $50,000. Mr. Howard valued
-his at $5,000 a foot, exclusive of the building.

A NOTABLE DELEGATION NAMED.
Pittsburg's Temperance Reputation Pre
vents a Gathering: Here.
WHAT THE TEIA1S WILL C0KSIST OP.
The members of the "Western Pennsylva
nia Turnvereins, and those of the Central
Turnverein of Pittsburg especially, are just
now making very extensive preparations
for the twenty-fifth convention of the mem
bers ot the North American Turner Bund,
which will take place in Cincinnati on June
22, 23, 24, 25 and 26. This festivity is with
out exception tbe most important festival to
the Germans in this country that is cele
brated among them at any time, because it
is considered among them to be a national
affair. From all over the United States tbe
different turner societies will send delegates to
Mr. Oscar Scheer, the gymnastic instructor
of the Central Turnverein in Pittsburg, who
will accompany a delegation of 23 members from
his organization to tbe convention, stated to a
Dispatck reporter yesterday that tho great
feature of the convention will be the prize
turning. There will be contests in fencing
with swords, foils, clubs and lances. There
MARCHING FOE FRIZES,
gymnastic exercises on the horizontal bar, on
the buck, Indian club swinging. Then again
there will be prize singing, and declamations
will be made as well as orations. A grand Gym
nastic exhibition will also be given by children.
"The members of the Pittsburg Central Turn
yerejn will take part in most of the contests
for active turning. The sincing section of tbe
Allegheny Turnverein will contest for a prize,
too. The scene of tbe festivities will be on tbe
grounds of the Cincinnati Clnb. There are 45
judges appointed to decide on the distribution
of the prizes. The members of our organiza
tion who are going to Cincinnati to take part in
the contest are going to give an exhibition of
the exercises to be contested in, at the Central
Turner Hall, on next Wednesday evening."
'When will such a convention take place In
Pittsburg?" asked the reporter.
I have no idea," replied Mr. Scheer, "but I
do not think that it will be in tbe near future,
because under the existing liquor license law
in Pennsylvania it would be impossible for us
to treat the visitors in a manner benttine such
a grand and extraordinary occasion. There
will be over 1,200 active Turners take part in
the various contests, and tbey have a hall in
Cincinnati 250 feet long. The Turners will be
located in tents all around, like the militia at
THE PITTSBURG CONTESTANTS.
"Who are the members'of the Central Turn
vereln, Pittsburg, who will take part in the
"Messrs. Joseph Kramer, H. Conrad, Albert
Fechtner, Rich. Mlrzwa, Karl Buende. H.
Noll, Christian Flancb, Theodoro Axthelm,
Julius Pannier, Carl Schaffe, J. Win

Guenther, Emil Boeble, Fred Stolte, Tbeodor
Pfalz. Other societies from our district which
will be represented are Johnstown, Birming
ham and Southslde. Wo have made arrange
ments to go and return by special train."
Special rates have been secured from tbe
railroads, and it is quite probable that the
Pittsburcers will charter a special car. It is
also probable tbe Pittsburg Turners will carry
off some of the laurels in the contests.
WILL BEER BE CHEAPER?
An Intimation That Home Brewers May Cat
to Save Themselves.
There are intimations scattered far
and wide that the monopoly grant
ed 93 people in this city to sell
spirits by the .drink will not be so
much of a pudding after all. A number of
men were discussing the matter last night. All
were moderate drinkers, men who take their
nips frequently, but would not' get drunk,
though the glass were made as delicious as
"the nectar which Jupiter sips."
Said one: "We will get beer cheap this year,
and saloon keepers will be wise if they hold
their drink trade as far as possible by better
treatment than some pf them are giving. Tbey
seem to think that as they have a monopoly
tbey can give us a little glass containing four
tablespoonfuls ot beer, and. if some of them
do put up a decent-sized glass, it is nearly all
Said another: "I know we will have cheap
beer, and home brewers can only hold their
trade here by cutting prices. Many people who
must have beer or whisky, or think tbey must,
and who are not so much addicted to tbe habit
as to be willing to fight like pigs in a trough to
get to a bar, will buy by package or case, and
this is the way they will be served. They will
not buy at retail in this city at all, but will send
their money to some other city, and the foreign
brewer will have bis warehouse in this city.
"As soon as the money is received, say in
Cincinnati, St. Louis, or some other city, the
warehouseman here will get an order to de
liver a case of beer, or whatever may be
wanted, and it will be delivered. There are
plenty of people wbo will have their drink, bnt
who will not walk half a mile for it,"

York, Pa., May 23. The Grand Lodge
of OdeLFellows'af Pennsylvania held its
closing session in this city to-day. It was
decided thut members should be permitted
to wear their regalias on Decoration, Me
morial and Independence days. The im
portant question of tbe session was then
brought up. that of admitting to member
ship applicants at!8 years of age. The sen
timent against such a" movement was so one
sided that a motion to confine all debates to
three minutes prevailed. However, this
was unnecessary, as the previous question
was called after the first address in opposi-'
tion, and the motion looking to the indorse
ment of the proposition was voted down al
It was decided to hold the next annual
meeting in Pittsburg by a vote of 391 to
