' A HANDSOME SOURCE OF POWER.
The Plans Completed for the Engine House of the Central
Traction Railway on Wylie Avenue.

"Work will be commenced shortly upon
the erection of the Central Traction Hail
Tray's power house at the corner of "Wylie
avenue and Tunnel street. The horse as a
motive power for the "poor man's coach"
is doomed in Pittsburg, and the power
house soon to be erected will take the place
of many a poor beast that has toiled up the
"Wylie avenue hill.
The building, which will be of pressed
brick with stone and terra cotta trimmings,
is a large one in the shape of a cross. The
above picture is engraved from Architect
Stillburg's drawing of the front This front
is on "Wylie avenue, measuring 60 feet. The
building will be of two stories. The "Wylie
avenue front will have two large arches
and two small ones, one having a
25-foot span. The building has
been planned more for adaptability
than beauty of architecture, although
the latter naturally crops out with the
nineteenth century stvle of combining the
two, for which Pittsburg buildings are so
noted, in the "Wylie avenue front
Tne edifice will extend back 160 feet, with

Mrs. Duckworth threw herself between the
combatants and Spurgeon retreated to the

Important Seal Estate Deals and" a
Rumor Involving a Big Farm..
HALF A HUNDRED HEW BUILDINGS.
A Egnare Offer to Those Objecting to Dia
mond Street Improvement.
BUSINESS GAINS OYER LAST TEAR
There was nothing in the business situ
ation last week to require special notice.
Trading in all the leading commodities was
of good volume. In the speculative mar
kets stocks were dull and prices slightly
shaded. The sales aggregated 8,897 shares.
Petroleum put on a burst of activity and
moved on a higher level of values. It closed
steady. Sales of iron were fair, but prices
were still unsatisfactory. Business in mort
gages fell off somewhat as compared with
previous weeks. The number placed on
record was 184, representing 5327,000. The
largest was for 563,000, placed yesterday.
Real estate was active. Several important
deals were closed up. The number of trans
fers recorded was 247, and the amount of
money involved S599.18S. The prospect is for a
good trade all summer and a boom In the fait
There was a report on Fourth avenue yester
day that tbe McKelvy farm, above Edcewood,
had been sold to a syndicate of East Enders for
about 13,000 an acre. Nobody seemed to know
anything definite abont it but some were dis
posed to think there was good foundation for
the report, as the property has several times
recently been mentioned in connection with a
deal of some kind. It is well located, con
venient to both Edgewood and Swlssvale, and
if sub-divided and put on the market it would
no doubt be qnickly bought up. The tract con
tains 50 or 60 acres.
There was an enconraginsr degree of activity
In the building trade last week. Tbe enmber
of permits taken ont was 56. The total cost of
the bouses is estimated at $149,630. The largest
permit was Issued to the St Augustine Church
congregation for a two-story brick miiiding to
cost 25,360. The next largest was taken out by
Mrs. Calvin for five two-story brick houses on
Poplar alley, near Elm street In the Seventh
ward. As usual, the majority ot the permits
were for dwellings. There is no doubt that
Pittsburg Is growing.
Tbe feeling in favor of widening Diamond
street is making good head way,, notwithstand
ing the objections of a few of tbe property
holders. Tbose who affect to think that tbe
proposed improvement would ruin them can
sell immediately, for cash, at 50 per cent more
than their property was worth 60 days ago, by
calling on Black Sc Baird, Fourth avenue. This
offer will hold good long enough to permit all
objectors to avail themselves of its terms. A
proposition so broad and fair, and involving so
much money, could be made onlv on tbe as
sumption well founded in this case, that tbe
improvement would more than double values
on tbe thoroughfare in question. It is tbe
strongest argument tbe wldeners have brought
to bear upon the subject When money talks.
Within a few days there has been quite a re
vival in tbe real estate market sales being
almost as numerous as at any previous time
this season. This is no doubt dne to the
abundance of idle capital, for which the own
ers can find no other equally safe and profit
able investment Money thus placed can be
made available almost any time, and nearly
always at a handsome gain. All resales re
cently made have been at an advance over the
original price. The demand is confined to no
particular section, but extends to both cities
and suburbs, and embraces all descriptions ot
property unimproved tracts having the calk
A countryman standing at tbe corner of Fifth
avenue and Smithfield street yesterday re
marked: "Tbose cabs look well. If I knew
what it costs to ride an hour or two In one of
them I believe I would engage one and see tbe
city. 1 don't like to trust the price to tbe
driver; he would very likely make it pretty
steep." This was business, and the hint should
be taken by the cab owners. If the price per
trip, hour and day were conspicuously posted
on some portion of the vehicle so tbat it could
be seen and read by everybody it would be a
great benefit to the: public, strangers espe
cially, who have a holy horror of Jehus, and
would no doubt draw custom. As a business
suggestion It is sufficiently important to be
given a trial.
Two or three weeks ago it was stated in this
department of The Dispatch that an import
ant sale of real estate had just occurred, and
tbe property was described as "situated on a
hill between tbe two rivers."' It turns out to
have been what is known as Ruch's Hill, and
comprises abont 35 acres. The price paid was
100,000, and the purchasers are Booth & Fllnn.
It is neb. in clay of a fine quality, which tbe
new owners will use for brick-making, after
which the land will be subdivided and put on
tbe market The deal was made through the
firm of BJack fc Baird.
A FLAT FAILURE.
Stock Brokers Allow Saturday to
Without a Regular Sale.
The stock market was so dull yesterday tbat
Captain Barbour was nnable, with all of his
eloquent persuasion, to induce the brokers to
come up to tbe scratch, and the result was a
goose egg not a single sale being effected.
There was too great a difference between buyers
and sellers to be bridged over. The entire list
was firm and some of the favorites were frac
tionally higher. There was a good demand for
bank stocks and other gilt-edged investment
securities. Taken altogether it was one ot tbe
dullest weeks in tbe history of the exchange,
both on the floor and in tbe offices.
While there was nothing to afford an indica
tion of the course ol tbe market this week, the
probability is that there will be a change of
some kind, but whether for better or worse is
extremely uncertain, as all signs fail in dry
weather. After call 100 shares Electric sold at

The Oil Market Shows What It Can Do
When It Tries.
The oil market yesterday was strong at the
opening, but eased oil daring the day and
closed at a decline. There was some scarcity
of the oommodlty, loans being made early at
25 cents and later at SO. This had considerable
influence in sustaining prices. Trading was of
The market opened at 84 but was soon
hammered down to 83. from whicb point it
rallied and sold up to MJ, the best figure of
tbe day. Tbe bears then made a raid and suc
ceeded in reducing the quotation to 83, but
they couldn't bold it down, and the next move
wa to 84. After this tbe market lost some of
its grip and receded to 83, recovering slight
ly, and closing at 83 with a prospect of sell
ing lower to-morrow.

Good Features A Strong
Wind-Up at Best
New York, May 25. The stock market was
again very active this morning, and it devel
oped the same strong tone which has character
ized it during the past few days, and prices at
the close wero tbe highest for the week. The
extreme doubt as to tbe length to which the
reaction begun yesterday would extend made
the opening this morning qnite ragged, though
the only marked changes from last evening's
figures were declines. The market hesitated
for a short time under the continuance of tbe
realizations, but the buying was of tbe same
excellent character that bas prevailed of late,
and the temporary weakness in a few shares
Tbe animation in tbe market was not so
marked during tbe prevalence of tbe hesita
tion, bnt later the activity became very great
and with tbe Grangers in tbe lead everything
moved up materially. In tbe regular list Bur
lington, Rock Island and Atchison, and, later.
Northwestern, were most prominent for
strength, and all of them advanced over 1 per
cent though a portion of the improvement in
Atchison was lost before tbe close. Tbe trust
stocks were also again very prominent in tbe
trading, and the Lead Trust took tbe lead, fol
lowed by Cotton Oil, the latter touching &.
A silent reaction was made toward 11 o'clock,
but tne upward movement was quickly re
sumed and continued without further setback
until the close, which was active and strong at
tbe higbest prices of tbe day. St Paul led the
list in print of activity, but its final gain was a
fraction only. Tbe final changes are almost In
variably in the direction of higher figures.
Burlington and Rock Island rose 1 per cent
each and Northwestern 1 per cent
Railroad bonds were active, tbe sales aggre
gating $1,161,000. Of this amount the Ft
Worth and Denver firsts contributed $163,000,
and Denver and Rio Grande Western certifi
cates $162,000. Tho market was strong, but tbe
marked advances were inspow, whilethe gen
eral list was but slightly changed. The impor
tant changes comprise Denver and Rio Grande
Western assented, toOOjt tbe certificates,
2 to 91, and Atcbison, Colorado and Pacific
firsts 3, to 95. Sales of bonds for tbe week were
$10,868,000 against $7,654,000 last week.

A POINT OF LAW.
Interesting Qnestion of Contempt
United br n Chicago Receiver.
CaiGAGO, May 25. An interesting con
tempt case, which was promised to come up
in Jndge Jamieson's eonrt next Monday,
was suddenly stopped to-day. Attorneys
Moses and Newman, abont two weeks ago
began a suit in the United States Court
against Charles Catlin, receiver of the big
jewelry boose of Clapp & Davis, and a
number of judgment creditors. About 75
New York creditors were pushing the case.
This morning Receiver dtlin's attorneys
asked Judge Jamieson for an order on
Moses and Newman to compel them to dis
miss the suit against the receiver, who had
been appointed by the Court, and iu the
event of a refusil to haul hi in up for a con
tempt of court in beginniug a suit in the
United States Court against a receiver ap
pointed by a Judge of the Circuit Court
Moses and Newman at once dismissed the
suit as against Defendant Catlin, bat not as
against the judgment creditors.

HIS FIGUBES WEONG.
Senator Revbnrn Thinks Governor Beaver
Bas Blade a Mistake In Hl Reck
oning -The State Beveanea
Declared to be Ample.
Philadelphia, May 25. The figures
which Governor Beaver has given out to
show that the appropriations made by the
Legislature at its late session exceed the
estimated receipts for the next two years
have astonished members of tbe Appropria
tions Committee here. Senator Eeybura,
Chairman oi tbe Senate Appropriations
Committee, said yesterday tbat the Governor
must have been misled or misquoted.
As a matter of fact tbe appropriations au
thorized by tbe Legislature amounted to ill.
250.000," said the Senator. "We kept a careful
record of all tbe Items, and they were as fol
lows: In the general appropriation bill, 56,135,
596: to Institutions of charity and otherwise not
under State control, 2,230,362; and to State in
stitutions and for other purposes. 13,935,000. It
is true the National Guards' appropriation Is a
continuing one, and not in this account and it
cannot bylaw exceed 800,000 for the two years.
Here, then, in all Is a total or 511,850,000. and
not 812)77,000, as would appear from 1 he figures
which are quoted as given ont by the Gover
nor. In his estimates of receipts the income
from nearly every source Is put at. ridicu
lously low figures. Take, for instance, the
item of capital stock tax. which for the
two years be places at $2400.000 as avail
able for tho general fond. This. I take it re
fers to tbe three-fourths of that tax which
hereafter, If the revenue bin is signed, will
0 inV the general fund, and would be equiv.
ai'ent to an estimate or tbat tax of 31,333,000 per
annum. As a matter of fact the fiscal officers
of the State have already put tbeir estimate
higher than that, and the revenues from this
source have during the past five years exceeded
$1,701X000 per annum and will be equal to tbat
for tlw current fiscal year and tbe next year.
Our' ertmmitte had the information from the
flnancZ-al officer of the State that tbe total
revenu es of tbe State during the next
two yea rs would be nearer 8 14,000,01)0 than 112,
000,06a. Governor Beaver made a mistake in
his calcn lations two years ago, upon which he
based his vetoes of the appropriations.
X few days ago Auditor General McCam
ant, while in this cityy said tbat the receipts
In the State Treasury lor the next two years
wniilil tu nrr.MiIe to meet all the annronri-
ations passed by the Legislature. lu calcu
lating the am?nnt appropriated by the Legislature-
Governor Beaver had probably
counted the item in tbe general appropri
ation bill for th; interest on the public debt.
Although this-it em is alwavs inserted In the
general appropriation bill, the moneyreally
comes from the-funds to the credit of the
Sinking- Fund, whuch are not contained in
the estimates of receipts of the general fund
made by the financial officers. JM embers of
the Appropriations Committee say that the
Governor shonld veto the charity bills upon
their demerits if he dues not think the in
stitutions, are worthy of the money, and
shonld not seek to evaile tbe issue by mak
ing it appear that there .is not enough money
to pay the bills, when. the lacts are that the
revenues will be ample.

A Tosng Man Suicides- ltecanse of His
Regard for-the Burlesque Actress.
Chicago, May 25. The dead body of
George A- "Westerkill, aged 25 years, was
found in his room at Damon's Hotel, about
noon to-day- Westerkill had attired him
self in a full dress suit, and his shirt and
white necktie. had. never before been worn.
Beside the bed were fonnd two bottles
which, had contained morphine. He
had evidently contemplated suicide for
several days, and had himself prepared his
body for burial. Lying on a table in the
room, in a way to indicate that Westerkill,
had been looking, at it just previous to his
taking the morphine, was a photograph of
Lydia Thompson, the burlesque actress.
Beside it was a letter front her thanking
"Westerkill for the flowers and many favors
he had shown her daring her recent stay in

EVIDENCE OP TWO WNESSES.
"Yes," said Hr. Loftus, "put it dowm
very plainly, just as 1 tell yon, for every
body that knows me knows in what bad
shape! I was, that I had to quit work I
was a molder by trade that the doctors
advised light outdoor work, that I fol
lowed that until I was taken to- my bed,
and that ray-people all thought I had con
sumption." The gentleman talking was Hr. John
Loltos, dealer in groceries on High street,
and living afKb. 25 of the same street. He
is well known in that neighborhood, as
well as among steel and iron workmen, of
whom, before his health failed him, he was
a fellow craftsman.
"That is why Lam in. the grocery busi
ness now," Jlr. Loftus continued. "I had
felt that I could never do active work again,
when I finally broke down,I about made up
my mind it was for good.
"jfon must remember it didn't come on
all at once. I had dizzy spells, and dark
spots floating before my eyes, especially
when I would stoop over. There would
be headaches a dull pain across
my forehead over my eyes. 3Iy noso
wonld get stopped up, first one nostril and
then the other. There would be ringing
and buzziDg sounds in my ears. The
trouble in my head, while it was annoying,
didn't worry me very much.
"But by and by I noticed I was contin
ually hawking and hemming. A dry kind
of a cough fastened itself on me, and do
what I wonld I could not get rid of
it I was continually sick at my
stomach. After eating there would bo
distress and nausea. What I would eat
would seem to rest like a load there. X
Mr. John Loftus, tS High Street. .
would go to the table feeling as if I bad s
good appetite, and when I would sit down
I could hardly eat anything. Food did not
seem to have the proper taste. Sometimes
the very smell of food would make me sick.
I couldn't eat nd yet I was always hungry.
"Breathing became difficult Sometimes it
would be accompanied with a wheezing sound.
When I wonld lie down I wonld choke all up
and I would have to sit up in order to get any
air into my lungs. The slightest effort or exer
tion would put me all out of breath.
"My nigbts wonldbe restless, Tbe coughing;
and the pains In tbe chest and hard breathing
kept me awake, and I would get up in ths
morning miserable. Sharp pains would catch
me in the chest running- through to the shoulder-blades.
"I lost steadily in weight and strength, and it
was no wonder people thought I had consump
tion. Sometimes I would have a hot, feverish
spell and then chills, and my body and limbs
would feel as cold as ice. Palpitation of the
heart was frequent It wonld beat fast and
this would be followed by slow and unsteady
beating. I was despondent about ro yslf, and,
indeed didn't look to ever get any better
Mly brother-in-law read me from the paper
an account of a case like mine that bad been
treated and cured by Drs. Copeland & Blair.
He urged me to go and see them, and finally I
went I found their charges reasonable, and
while tbey would bold out no promises to me,
I made up my mind that they could help me, iz
"Welt I placed myself under their care and
improved steadily from tbe start. I gained in
weight My head became clear, breathing
easy. The cough and tbe pains in tbe chest
passed away. 1 got a hearty appetite, slept
well as5d gained gradually, but surely. I feel
like another man now, am able to work, and I
am very thankful for my restoration. This is
what Drs. Copeland & Blair have done for me.
and I am grateful for it and very glad to give
my statement of it for publication,"

Mr. Morris Meany, living at 2908 Mul
bury street, in conversation with the writer,
said: "It had extended so far that I bad
little strength or ambition lefk How did
it begin ? "Well, I can hardly say. It was
my head in the first place. My nostrils
would stop np; first one then the other
Sometimes they would discharge. There
would be a dnll pain in my forehead; my eyes
would get dim and watery.
"My throat gave me no end of trouble I
would be. constantly hawking and hemming
to dear it of the mucus and phlegm. It
would feel raw and inflamed, and my voice
wonld get husky.
"I could see that I was getting weaker
and thinner every dy. I worked as long
as I could, bnt my strength gave out en
tirely at last, and I had to give up. An
ugly hacking cough got hold of me. Sharp
