An Incident of the Lawrencevillo Murder
A BATS BIG SUIT TO EECOTUR MOKEI
The Carter murder trial was continued in
'Criminal Court yesterday and progressed
Tery slowly daring the day, owing in part
to the disagreements of District Attorney
"Porter and Attorney Johnson, who were
continually interfering with each other in
the matter of witnesses. "Willis Johnson,
the colored pnddler, who was on the stand
on Thursday, continued his testimony yes
terday, which was to the effect that the de
iendant was always fooling with the men in
the mill, but he never saw him bother Gross
James Johnson, who works in the Solar
Iron "Works, identifiedjthe pistol with which
the shooting was done, as being his. It was
taken out of his coat pocket during the
morning and was handed back to him by
Carter after the shooting.
Officer John McAndrews, who arrested
the prisoner, identified the revolver. "Will
iam 'Wagner, who was working near where
Carter and Gross stood, testified to hearing
some words between the men and shortly
alter he heard a snot. .fc.awara unite, who
if in the patrol service, identified the re
volver as the one handed him by the officer
at the time Carter was placed in the patrol
At this point the Commonwealth rested,
and George Elphinstone, Esq., addressed
the 'jury lor the defense. He warned the
jurors to -take no heed of the disputes by the
attorneys, as they were of no importance and
were generally settled over a glass of lemon
ade. Mr. Elphinstone stated that they ex
pected to prove that the shooting was acci
dental. He also was raking District Attor
ney Porter for the manner in which he read
Gross' dying declaration, when Mr. Porter
objected, and quite a lively argument took
place. -The Court sustained the objection.
"William Bay was the first witness called
for the defense. He testified to having been
employed in the Solar Iron "Works and was
there on the day of the shooting. Carter
and "Willis Johnson were playing when
Gross got into the conversation, and he
heard a shot fired. Gross told him that he
was shot, bnt witness did not at first be
lieve him. The deceased finally called out
to catch him, as he was going to fall; he
was too far away, however, and Carter and
Johnson caught him and laid him down.
Gross told the witness that "Johnny"
shot him, bnt he did not know what for.
He told him this three times. He heard
the remarks between Johnson and Carter
about "doing" his big brother, but thought
they were in fun. District Attorney Porter

Cornell' Great Benefactor Gives 8300.000
More 10 the University.
Ithaca, N. "ST., May 2i It is the habit
of Henry "W. Sage, one of Ithaca's million
aires, who has given more to Cornell Uni
versity than any other man, to keep his
princely deeds secret. To-day the cor
respondent was informed of another.of Mr.
Sage's magnificent benefactions in the
shape of a $300,000 endowment for the li
brary. It has been announced that in the
event of the final loss of the McGraw
Fiske suit, involving $1,500,000 bequeathed
to the library, Mr. Sage would pay for the
splendid library building, to cost over
$200,000,onhich work has begun. But it has
not been made public until now that,in addi
tion to standing the cost of the building,
Mr. Sage offers, if the suit is lost, to give
the library an endowment of 300,000.
Thus, at one stroke, he assures to Cornell,
an amount greater than the original en
dowment fund given by Ezra Cornell.
If the McGraw-Fiske suit is won, as is
confidently expected, Mr. Sage's half a
million will probably come to the TJnivers
itv for other purposes, for Henry W. Sage
finds his life work in the building up of Cor
nell University. The giving of this sum
will make Mr. Sage's benefactions to the
University amount to about 51,000,000 in
cash, besides counsel and services without
which the University would be more than
that sum poorer.

Philadelphia, May2i. Two men who
were injured through alleged neglect of rail
roads secured verdicts in their favor in the
Courts of Common Pleas yesterday. In No.

Pennsylvania Railroad Company.
.In the first place Quinn was in the employ
of the Beading Compapy as the engineer of
a freight train, and was struck by the pay
train on May 27, 1886, at Monocacy station.
H had descended from his engine and while
engaged in oiling the machinery was struck
by the engine of the pay train, of the ap
proach of which he bad" received no notice.
The other case showed that Specht, in cross

wagon, was struck by a train. His right
arm was broken and his right leg so badly
injured that it was afterward amputated at

WHAT THEY THINE.
Sentiment of the Labor Press on Car
negie's Wage Reduction.
ALL THE JOURNALS DENOUNCE IT.
Congratulates the Courage of the
Great Iron Firm.
SIGNIFICANT COMING AT THIS TIME
The heavy reduction in wages proposed
by Carnegie, Phipps & Co. in introducing
their new sliding scale of wages at Home
stead published in The Dispatch the
other day, has caused considerable com
ment. All of the leadine labor papers have
editorials on the subject this week, and
some of them are appended:
The.4merican Manufacturer has a lengthy
editorial on the subject The main points
are as follows:
The action of Carnegie, Phipps fc Co., LIm.,
relativo to wages at their Homestead Steel
Woiks is most Important and Bieniflcaut. It is
in several respects a wide departure from
methods that have been in vogue in the iron
and steel mills of Pittsburg and the country,
and shunld the outcome be its adoption cither
in its entirety or practically as presented it will
have an important and determining influence
upon wages in the iron industry and the method
of deciding what shall be paid.
We have not seen the scales, and cannot
therefore say of our own knowledge that this
firm has been thus courageous, but it is as
serted that they have. If this is not a radical
change in Plttsburg.nothlng is radical. Whether
tne rates asked are lair or not, can only be
judged by those acquainted with all the facts.
One thing is true, such a demand shows a
couraze that it has been questioned whether
any Pittsburg manufacturer possessed. At any
rate, it is a most decided protest against the
policy which has heretofore placed Pittsburg
manufacturers at a disadvantage in wages.
CHABGED TO rBINCIPLE.
In speaking of the competitors of Car
negie, Phipps & Co. and the new scale, the
National Glass Budget says:
All this trouble is directly chargeable to their
set principle to pay less wages than other firms.
If Carnegie's proposed reduction brings on a
long fight at Homestead, it will be indirectly
due to the policy of his competitors. That
policy leads to social disorders, and is bound to
create a dangerous, revengeful feeling It
fosters anarchy. It is a more dangerous assault
upon the peace of the community than that of
which the strikers are alleged to be guilty. But
oar present laws do not take any notice of this
course. While the assault upon property
would be deemed worthy of the severest pun
ishment, the assault upon wages 13 taken as a
matter ol course.
Secretary Martin, of the Amalgamated
Association, has this to say in the Labor
The apparent hubbub caused by the pro
posed reduction in the wages of the Home
etead employes of Carnegie, Phipps & Co., is
really unnecessary. The worst feature of the
notice is the coercive threat it carries that
tbe new scale must be-signed by June 1, or new
men will be secured to take the places
of the present workmen when their pres
ent scale contract with the firm expires,
July 1, next Just reverse that and see how it
works. Suppose tbe firm bad an abundance of
orders and were under contract to deliver so
many thousand tons of steel per month, and
the Amalgamated Association knowing this to
be a fact, would formulate a new scale for the
entire plant, advancing the wages of the men,
say, on an average, 25 per cent,
THE NEW SCALE
to be given to the firm about the middle of
May, as the Association's ultimatum, coupled
with a demand that the scale must be acceded
to be by June 1 or tbe mill would close down by
July 1. Would that be doing justice to the firm?
Certainly not. And to make a similar demand
on the men is by no means justifiable on the
part of the firm. This depriving the men of
one full month (June) in which to discuss the
proposition with the firm Is, to say the least,
coerc'on in its worst form.
The Commoner and Glass Worker says
Andrew Carnegie has shown the cloven hoof
again. To the general public the official an
nouncement that be proposed a sliding scale to
"his men" at Homestead was a tremendous sur
prise, bnt the readers of the Commoner and
Glass Worker will remember without trouble
the repeated statements in this paper just after
the Braddock strike was settled a vear ago.
that he proposed to give his Braddock sliding
scale to his Homestead men. Carnegie means
just what be says, and as there is no doubt that
the men will refuse anything but the Amal
gamated scale which will be arranged at the
Amalgamated convention next month, a
struggle is sure to follow. Carnegie's plan of
action will be to shut down tbe mill, fill what
orders he can at his other mills or at other
mills, and after two or three months of idle
ness (believing as he does in hungry stomachs
as a settler for labor troubles), he will attempt
to start up and make every individual who goes
to work sign bis sliding scale as an individual,
and thus repudiate his labor organization.

TOO MAflY CATTLE.
Lunanlshlne Condition of One of the Argen.
tine Itepubllc's Greatest Industries
I A 'Government -Bounty
to the Rescue.
"Washington, May 24. E. Ir. Baker,
United States Consul at Buenos Ayres, in a
report to the Department of State, says that
the cattle industry of the Argentine Repub
lic is in such a languishing condition that a
law has been passed offering a guaranty of 5
per cent fo.r ten years on the capital em
ployed in the business of exporting fresh or
preserved beef. The report says it is under
stood that several establishments are pre
paring to take advantage of the guaranty
provided by the Government, and are going
into business' on a large scale, with special
steamers fitted up for the traffic and ware
houses in England and France.
Great things are expected from this
bounty law by the' Argentines, but Consul
Baker says he does not believe tbe
law will hurt United States beef
shippers much until new methods are
adopted for the preparation of beef for
exportation. Stall-fed cattle are quite un
knownln the country, and all bullocks for
the market are taken directly off the grass,
the meat, of course, being soft and watery.
The Argentines, it is thought, will not cut
much of a figure until they learn that dry
food is absolutely necessary in order to pre
pare fresh meat for very distant foreign
The total number of sheep in the Argen
tine Bepublic is estimated at 80,000,000,aud
of horned cattle at 20,000,000. It has been
customary to slaughter the surplus cattle
and keep the stock down by the preparation
of jerked beef for Brazil and Cuba, and the
shipment of the bones and tallow to Europe.
These shipments have been steadily de
creasing in tbe past ten years, and the stock
of horned cattle has increased from 15,000,
000 to 30,000,000 head.
Ten years ago nearlv 600.000 cattle were
slaughtered annually in the province of
Buenos Ayres alone." Xast year the num
ber did not exceed 100,000, and many
slaughtering establishments have been com
pelled to close up. The cattle industry has
also become greatly depressed from this
diminished demand abroad, and the value
of the carcasses of horned cattle has fallen
from $12 to $20 a head, until they are now a
drug in the market at from $3 to $6 a head,
or little more than the value of the hide. It
was in response to the frantic appeals of the
cattle men that something be done to stimu
late their industry that the law was enacted
giving a bounty to fresh beef exporting es

she experienced in almost every part of her

fact she suffered with all thoso diseases and

months her mind was unbalanced, and for
months she was confined to her bed. Sbe be

only weighed 03 pounds. No one expected her

her disease, she says:

A Pittsburg Steel Holder Who Had
- to Leave at the last.
A VERY NOTABLE CONFESSION
"To stop work was a serious matter for
me, but I had to do it I was really driven
The speaker,' Mr. Morris Meany, a young
molder at the Pittsburg Steel Casting
Foundry on Twenty-sixth street, spoke with
that simple earnestness that characterizes
aU those who, not being great talkers, when
they do speak are accustomed to being
listened to as .having something of interest
or importance to say.
"I wasntirely broken down," he contin
ued, "and felt as if there wasn't much hope.
It had extended so far that I had little
strength or ambition left. How did it be
gin? "Well, I can hardly say. It was my
head in the first place. My nostrils would
stop Up; first one, then the other. Some
times they would discharge. There would
be a dull pain in my forehead; my eyes
would get dim and watery; there would be
sounds like ringing or roaring in my ears
and my hearing seemed to get poor.
"My throat gave me no end ot trouble.
I would be constantly hawking and hem
ming to clear it of the mucus and phlegm.
It would feel raw and inflamed, and my
voice would get husky. Sometimes I could
not speak above a whisper. There was a
continual dropping back of matter from
Mr. Morris Meany, t90S Mulberry Street.
"I could see that I was getting weaker
and thinner every day. I worked as long
as I conld, but my strength gave out en
tirety at last, and I had to give up. An
ugly backing cough got hold of me. Sharp
pains wonld take me in the chest, running
through to my shoulder blades.
"My nights were the worst , I couldn't
sleep. I had to be continually raising to
clear my throat. The matter that would
drop down would almost choke me. Some
thing wonld seem to stick there that I could
not get up or down. I coughed and coughed,
and could get no rest from sheer coughing.
''Night sweats came on and weakened me
terribly. When I would get up in the
morning I would feel weak and sick and
miserable. For a half hour I wonld do
nothing but cough and raise, and I would
be so weak that I could hardly dress my
self. "I couldn't eat anything. I would feel
as it I had a hearty appetite, and, when I
wonld sit down to tbe table I could bardly
touch tbe food. If I did get anything on
my stomach, I would have to throw It up;
it was so weak it could hardly retain any
"Sometimes, when I would be lying down,
my heart would beat bard and fast, pal
pitate for a few moments, and then it would
beat slow and irregular, and there would be
a sensation of faintness and dizziness.
Sharp pains would seize me in the region of
the heart. Lwas getting very pale and thin.
My friends all told me that I had lnng
trouble. I had lost a Bister from a similar
disease, and Lwas very despondent and low
spirited, about myself. I had tried almost
everything without getting any help.
"Well, it was in this condition that I went
to Drs. Copeland and Blair at 66 Sixth ave
nue. I fonnd their charges were not exorb
itant: that they were within my means.
They didn't promise anything, but I felt
sure they understood my case, and I placed
myself under their care."
"With what result?" asked the writer.
'In the second week I commenced to feel
better, and from that on I steadily grew

My head and throat became clear and well. In

TKY PLAIN TALK.
Showing tbe Outline of a Route Which la
When a person with a delicate constitu
tion has a tendency to catarrh or con
sumption whether this tendency is in
herited or results from taking cold easily
it is noticeable ( that that person invariably
loses flesh and 'loses strength, showing that
the nutrition is interfered with.
In such a case the sufferer should at once
be placed under 'influences that will restore
the defective nutrition and tend to invig
orate the constitution.
It is to be remembered that in every case
the presence of catarrh is. an evidence ot
predisposition to consumption, and no mat
ter how flight the attack may be, it should
be treated with the greatest care, and the
treatment should be continued until all
traces of the catarrh h.iveiisappeared.
If the Catarrh is allowed to reach the
smallest tubes in the lungit-which condi
tion is indicated by the spitting up of a yel
low material then immediate attention to
the malady is demanded, or serious lung
trouble will result,
Catarrh is, nine- times out of ten, the causo
that produces consumption, and hence no one
can afford to neglecta caso of catarrh, however
slight. It is easily cured, if taken ill time, and
treated regularly and correctly by aBpecialist.
If left to Itself it is rarely cured without a
change of climate, but, with each new col J, it
gets more and moro troublesome, extending
always a little deeper into the lungkuntila

ON. THE YERGE OF DESPAIR.
MR. GEO. TfHARTREY'S EXPE
RD3NOE. Another Patient Whom the Physi
cians Failed to Help
Cured by Dr. Smith, 'the Magnetic
Physician, at 502 Fenn
Dr. Smith is performing some of the most
wonderful cures, ever witnessed in Pittsburg.
Scores and hundreds of invalids who have
hitherto been unable to find relief from their
sufferings are being restored to health in large
numbers through Dr. Smith's strange magnetic
power. It is exceedingly interesting to see
and talk with the vast number of invalids suf
fering from all manner of complaints who are
brought to the doctor for bis favorable or un
favorable opinion of their diseases. It is also
gratifying to observe the change that takes
place in many of these seemingly helpless cases.
Scores of invalids who are so weak and feeble
that they have to be carried to tbe doctor m
chairs and on beds are restored to health in a
short time. Some are cured by one, some by
two magnetic treatments, while others require
more. The following very interesting cases
were cured by our magnetic treatment:
Mr. Geo.T. Hartrey. who resides at Spring
dale, Pa., has' been a great sufferer from con
sttpatlon hemorrhoid ipiles) and from fistula)
for a number of years. Pile tumors as large as
a black walnut made their appearace several
years ago. and were the cause of much suffer
ing. These tumors were often prolapsed, and
would bleed so profusely as to causo extreme
prostration. As the disease advanced four fls
tals made their appearance, and were so pain
ful that he was obliged to give up his business,
and was unable to perform any manual labor.
Mr. Hartrey had tried tbe skiU of a number of
physicians bnt had been unable to find relief
Until he applied to Dr. Smith, tbe magnetic
physician, at No, KG Penn avenue, who cured
him permanently without the use or the knife
or ligature. Dr. Smith agreed to cure him for
a certain sum of money, which Mr. H. paid
him at the beginning of the treatment. Mr.
Hartrey was permanently cured in a short
time and may be referred to.
Mr. Peet, owner and manager of Imperial
Hail was a great Batterer from vericocele for
many years. He applied to Dr. Smith and was
permanently cured. He may be referred to,
Mr. John Foley, who resides at Millvale, was
taken with a terrible pain in his right shoulder
upward of five months ago. Tbe attack came
on suddenly, like a shock of paralysis. Tbe
arm became useless in a few moments' time.
He could not use tbe band nor move a finger.
A short time after tbe attack he began to ex
perience pain in the shoulder. The pain in
creased in severity for a number of days, when
it was discovered that there was an accumula
tion of pus in the shoulder joint Mr. Folev
applied to a doctor, who opened the shoulder
witlrtbe knife. Large quantities of pus was
discharged at tho time and a fistula formed,
which continued to discharge a thin acrid nus
In this helpless and hopeless condition he ap
plied to Dr. Smith, the magnetic physician,
at 502 Penn avenue, and was cured per
fectly. He has regained the use of his arm.
J. C. Henderson hao been tortured with pUes
for ten years. He was cured by Dr. Smith in
Dr. Smith cures all forms of female com
plaints without the use of instruments or ex
posure of tbe person. He also cures piles and
rupture without the nse of tbe knife, or pain
to the patient, nor detention from business.
He treats and cures cancers in less time and
with less pain than by any other known
Dr. Smith is permanently located at 02 Penn
avenue, where everybody can go from 9 a. m.

While it is Impossible to avoid attacks of IB
ness and to finally conquer the great destroyer.
Death, there is abundant evidence to prove
that there are agencies within the reach of
skUl and science capable of correcting the-tsn-dencles
of disease, and restoring enfeebled
energies to their healthy functions. Life cer
tainly cannot be made perpetual: bnt it can
doubtless be prolonged by judicious treatment,
and misery and suffering can bo prevented.
The idea that disease will spend itself without
the aid of medical skill is as absurd aa to sup
pose that the laws of nature are without pur
pose and direction. It is the same in the ani
mal as in the vegetable kingdom. When
tree shows signs of weakness or decay it is byv
care that its vitality is restored. Leave it alone
and the process of decay will advance, and in a
short time a dead trunk only will remain.
Bnt; attend to It, water its, roots, protect It
from blighting winds, eta. and It will again
flourish as if it had never given evidence of
feebleness. So It is with the human being;for
If nothing be done to control colds, fevers,
lung, liver and kidney affections, and a thous
and and one other diseases to which flesh is
heir, they are certain to obtain headway, break
down tbe most vigorous constitutions, ana,
after a longer or shorter time of wretchedness
and suffering, end life. Thousands die every
year'f rom neglect resulting from carelessness,
prejudice, orsome other blameable cause. Fam
ilies are depleted, fond ties severed, torturing
anxieties produced, and endless miseries pro
tracted from one generation to another by
reason of overlooking tbe commencement of
disease and delaying medical treatment. Fatal
beyond conception is this carelessness in regard
to health and life, for without health there can
pe no happiness, and when life ends all is
darkness and mystery.
After carefully considering these circum.
stances every one will recognize the import
ance of consulting a skillful and experienced
physician as soon as the existence of any dis
ease is detected. To delayis always danger
ous, and may prove fatal. The principal point
to.decideisthechoiceofa doctor. Advanced
medical science alone, as practiced by Dr.
Woods, can meet the demands of tbe case, and
he wishes to impress upon young and old alike
regaining, if lost, the full force of physical and
tne importance oi retaining, it possessed, ana
nervous energy. Dr. Woods thoroughly under
stands the treatment of snch cases, as is proved
by tbe fact that a large number of young peo
ple who consulted him when in a state of de
bility have regained powerful constitutions.
He likewise gives attention to people advanced
in age whose systems-have lost vitality. Broken
down constitutions come within one of his
greatest specialties as a practicing physician,
and the amount of good he has done in restor
ing health and strength is simply incalculable.
Tbe first principle of his treatment is to stop
the disease and then restore tbe vital organs
to their proper functions. He repairs and
builds up tbe constitution, so that the whole
system is made new. The truth of this is
shown by tbe fact that his patients gain from
10 to SO ponnds in from one to three months.
Dr. Woods can refer to hundreds of well
known and influential citizens whom ho has
restored to perfect health after their diseases
were considered incurable, and in many in
stances they had given up all hope of ever real
izing the sense of good health again.
When possible the doctor prefers to see his
patients; but when this is impossible his suc
cessful system of treatment by correspondence
enables the afflicted in all parts of the world to
avail themselves of tbe benefit of his skill at a
very small cost. Send 4 cents in stamps for
question list. All communications sacredly
confidential. No charge for advice. Exam
inations are also free to those who desire treat

There's such a thing in
business as carrying too much
ballast, and getting weighed
down with the name of keep
ing a cheap store.
But who ever heard people
complaining of getting too

clothing business at any rate.
People are always seeking
the reliable, the long-wearing,
the best-to-be-got for the

keeping that kind to make
every buyer of clothing an

We have a rule for our

There isn't a chance for
