Allegheny Said to l)e Surely
Solid for ProMbitioii.
The Blocks of Twenty System Being
Used With Good Effect.
THE I, & 0. LEAGUE IS SCORED
For Working Havoc Among Many Converts
for the Amendment
BI AEEEST1KG SDNDAI TIOLATOES
The Constitutional Amendment Commit
tee of Allegheny met in the basement of the
Pourth IT. P. Church last evening, to hear
the reports of the Chairman and Secretary
on the progress made in the work of can
vassing the city by wards for voters and es
tablishing ward and precinct committees.
Iter. Dr. Fulton, Chairman, said he had
nothing but progress to report and very
bright prospects for the future.
Committees have been established and
aie in working order in every ward in the
city. These ward committees are divided
into precinct committees, and those in turn
into sub-precinct committees, giving one
man to each 20 voters, on the block system;
but not "blocks of five," like Dudley's.
All the arrangements have not been com
pleted in the Thirteenth ward, but will be
in a day or two. Lists of all voters, fac
tories, mills, etc., have been obtained, and
men assigned to work among them who
work at the same profession. For instance,
a grocer is detailed to see the grocers in his
precinct, a mill man to talk to his com
rades, etc Eight young men have been
kept busy at the headquarters on North
avenue, for some time sending out circulars.
SAY XHEY'Ui CAREY IT.
Those present last evening seemed very
well satisfied with the progress made, and
were very sanguine in saying that Alle
gheny will be carried for the amendment
by a handsome majority. In awecK or so a
canvass of the city will be made to see just bow
much of a majority they may expect. They
stated that they did not make the canvass now
because with a week's work they can make a
larger showing. The whole city is being can
vassed now enough to find out those opposed
to the amendment, and the doubtful voters
and a complete canvass, to show the figures,
can be made in a day's time by calling meet
ings of all the sub-committees in the city.
The committee has engaged two tents, and
will erect one on a vacant lot on Beaver avenue
and the other in the north part of the city, and
will hold meetings in them.
Just as a motion had been made to adjourn a
member arose and assailed the Law and Order
League, charging it with "working aeainst the
amendment by its epy methods." Ho quoted
an instance of a man wlio came into a restau
rant on Sunday in his precinct and asked for a
meal and was given it. When he arose from
the table he decided he wanted a glass of milk,
and so stepped to theteounter, a few feet from
the table, and asked for
A. GLASS OP MILK.
It was cold to him, and the next day the man
who sold it was fined 57 50 at the instance of
the Lawnd Order League. The committce-
N man said he bad worked specially with that
lestanrant keeper, and he had promised to vote
for the amendment; but changed his mind
when the Law and Order League arrested him
for selling a glass of milk threo feet from his
table. The member mentioned several in
stances of the same kind, and wanted the
committee to restrain the Law and Ordentes
from spoiling converts to the amendment.
Dr. Fulton said he didn't believe men who
. whined because they were arrested for break
ing the law amounted to much. The discussion
promised to become lively for a few minutes,
as tbe chagrined committeeman protested that
the Law and Order League was making havoc
m ith the cause of Constitutional amendment.
Tbe more conservative members did some
whispering, and a motion was made to adjourn
ana carried with a rush.
The members then went upstairs to listen to
an address by Mr. S. C Haines, a business man
from New York. Prior to the opening of the
address, 200 school children marched,
two-and-two, up the stairs and up both a'sles.
Singing an amendment song, they took their
places on the platform and sang several more.
Tbe speaker bandied the subject in a nice, plain
manner and succeeded admirably in holding
the attention of his audience.
AN0THEB ALLEGHENY PAKE.
Sir. Samuel Watson's Woods Wanted for
the ew Prejrcr.
Xx-Councilman Samuel "Watson, of Al
legheny, stated to a Dispatch reporter last
evening that a gentleman representing an
electric railway in Allegheny had approached
him recently and asked him if he would sell
100 acres of the woodland in the Tenth ward
for park purposes. He was told by the gentle
man that he was acting in the Interest of a
company. Mr. Watson told him he would sell
the land if the company would give him
enough money for it.
, This is as far as the negotiations have gone
at present. The woodland which is back of
Observatory Hill, between the New Brighton
ana i"enrTsville roads, is oblong in shape, wild,
and would make a beantiful park.
The woods were a favorite resort of Prof.
Langley in 6ummer, and he always sought their
seclusion when he had any intricate problem to
work out or wished to commune with nature.
1 he company would gain their returns by
bmlaing np that section, and, with rapid transit
uear, might succeed well. Agentleman spoken
to j esterday said there was sure to be a park
there, and, if tbe company did not build it, an
effort might be made to have the city do so.
THE CLIMAX HAS COME
In the SouthMdo Church Quarrel, nod the
Pastor Will Resisn.
Rev. J. K. Melhorn, of the Grace Evan
gelical Lutheran Church, will preach his
farewell sermon next Sunday, and the trouble
between him and his congregation has about
reached the climax.
The attendance has been very slim lately,
and tbe enemies of tbe pastor seem to be gain
ing in numbers. It isalleccd that the pastor is
for tbe prohibition amendment, and has made
enemies on that account. But tho reverend
gentleman's opponents deny this. Said one of
them last night:
Mr. Melhorn did say from the pulpit of his
cliurcli: Palsied be the man who vot- apilnst
the amendment;" but I deny emphatically that
-we are using this against him. 1 know be and his
friends think we are, but they are mistaken.
'J his matter Is not or so recent ortjrln. Itwasnot
Jumped Into hastilv, but lias been Klven the carc
lul ihouplit of many months. Everything we can
say of Mr. Melhorn as a minister is to his credit;
but we object to him as a man. e have told him
so, without epeciryinfc our objections. If, after
he is tbrouch with the congregation, be wants an
open investigation, we are ready to co Into one.
A peculiar feature of tbe trouble is that Mr.
Melhorn's enemies do not specify their objec
tions to him in any other way except stating
tht they consider his resignation a benefit to
tbe congregation. He has been there for IS
ministers Against It.
At the next meeting of tbe Pittsburg Pres
bytery the question of reviving the "Confes
sion of Faith" will be discussed. The petition
which was submitted to tbe General Assembly
at its meeting in New York last week was re
Jerred back by it to the various presbyteries,
which will vote upon the question of revision.
The ministers ot the Church do not favor a
revision that will change the doctrine of the
Church, but one that will make tbe language
of certain parts intelligible and less liable to

-PICTPEING A DEEAM.
Erastus Wiman Tells Pittsburg of Bis
Commercial Union Scheme,
TEARING DOWN THE BABBED WIRE
Which Fences Canada From the Markets of
the United States.
NOTABLE MAN'S ELOQUENT ADDRESS
Hon. Erastus "Wiman, of New York, ad
dressed fully a hundred members ot the
Cnamber of Commerce and prominent busi
ness men yesterday afternoon on the subject
of "A Commerce That Should be Conti
nental." Mr. Wiman is an easy and grace
ful alker, and charmed his andience. The
subject of his address has a peculiar interest
to Pittsburg, and he started out by saying
that the progress that Pittsburg and Pennsylvania-
are making will soon demand a
larger area of commerce. Then continuing.
"The country north Canada is known
only by name. Few realize it is larger than
the United States. It has 3,500,000 square
miles, while the United States has bat 3,036,
000. The climate of Canada is one of the
best advantages which she possesses, and
within the parallels that include Canada
some of the greatest achievements have been
attained. The success ot Pittsburg has been
supplemented with that of the West, the
Northwest and the Southwest, and why may
not the North fall in line?"
Hon. Erastus TPiman.
Taking up the probable advantages to be
gained by a commercial union with Canada
Mr. "Wiman said:
"Minnesota and Dakota are the greatest
wheat growing centers in the United States.
But north of these States in the vicinity of
Manitoba tbe sun shines two hours more ont of
the 21, and tnat during the time the wheat is
ripening. There is alo more frost there. Na
ture seems to have made a continual supply of
moisture there, and last year there was raised
in the Manitoba region a surplus of 12.000,000
bushels ot wheat. 7,000,000 bushels of barley
and 2,000,000 of other grain, over what was re
quired to meet the demand of tho region. For
20 j ears wheat has been cultivated in that re
gion without fertilization. This alone is a fact
of stupendous importance to this country.
THE GEEAT DREAM.
"The region of the St. Lawrence is greater
than that of the New England States, with
that of New York and Pennsylvania added,
and richer, and the great dream of the com
mercial unionist is that the barbwire fence,
extending from Nova Scotia to tbe Pacific
Ocean, separating these two great countries,
may be lifted up, obliterated, and that trade
between them may be as tree as it Is between
tbe States to-day: that it may extend as far as
human life extends, and that thero may be no
limitation between the commerce of tho na
tion. If this can be done, the mistake that
was made a hundred years ago in the Declara
tion of Independence can be nndone, and the
English speaking nation of North America
will be brought together In one commercial
Mr. Wiman is not in favor of annexation.
He docs not think Canada favors tho scheme,
but he is sure she is ready for a commercial
union. Continuing on the benefits of such a
union, Mr. Wiman said:
"The 5,000 Immigrants that land in Castle Gar
den almost weekly wonld see advantages in
Canada that they see in the United States. Tho
proposal is that the same duties that are col
lected at Montreal and Quebec shall stand at
New York, Boston and Pittsburg, and that the
receipts shall be equally divided per capita.
The development of natural resources will con
tribute very largely to the development of the
industries of tbe United States. Half of the
timber now used in the northern part ot the
New England States comes from Canada, while
mere is no estimate oi toe Denenis tnoetie
rived irom the coal and iron resources of Nova
Scotia. Canada possesses more than half of
the fresh water coast of tbo globe, while she
has 5,000 miles of the greatest fish producing
coast line in tbe world. An enormous element
of food would be gained by the free access to
tnis coast line.
HOW TO ACCOMPLISH IT.
"In agriculture, coal, minerals, lumber, fisb,
in everything, Canada has to-day resources that
will contribute enormously to the growth ot
this country. But England has treated her
liberally, and she does not need a political
change. The United States has more credit of
teaching England a free colonial government
than she has ever taken to herself, and if the
commercial union is made the lesson wonld be
continued. The tariff would be kept up against
England and obliterated between Canada and
the United States. The two countries would
progress all the more by tbe lino being lifted.
There is only about 5,000,000 collected in duties
from Canada no w, and it costs over 2.000,000 to
collect it. so that the United States would not
lose much by the operation, at least.
"Lord Selkirk attempted a colonization
scheme once, bnt it failed. He found, how
ever, an outlet for 3,000,000 of people .through
the Hudson Bav to Liverpool. And he discov
ered that it was the same distance from the
mouth of the Nelson river to Liverpool as from
New York to Liverpool.
"America is only another name for oppor
tunity. It is the last and best gift of God to
His people. And all this great work can be
accomplished if we can only say to the people
of Canada : 'Every tree tn your forests will be
enhanced Si every horse from $10 to $20. every
cow, every acre of land and everything will bo
worth just so much more; your mines will ever
remain dead and silent until you open up your
gateways to tbe Sontbern people who want
5 our products."
"If we say this to them wo talk to nine-tenths
of tbe people, and I guarantee that a resolution
would go to Parliament to the effect that 40
Iper cent of tbo British people wanted to be
if roe. This would be tho beginning of a lessen
ing of the ties between Canada and the Im
perial Government, and tbe result would be a
growth of an annexation sentiment. Tbe ulti
mate result of tbe whole matter is a change in
the political complexion, an American senti
ment in the next Parliament, and finally, one
great nation one creat republic without a
vditige of European interference."
Mr. Wiman was applauded heartily at the
cldse of his address. He answered several
Sdystions put by members of tho Chamber of
ommerce, and was accorded a unanimous
vote1 of thanks by the meeting.
WIMAN KETUENS HOME.
HU Experiment With tbe FncI Economizer

TO BEGIN WORK TO-DAY.
The Erection of tho Now Government Bnild
Ing to Proceed Once More Where Are
tbe Delects, Sir. Malone?
"Work on the new Government building,
which has been at a standstill since the dis
missal of Superintendent of Construction
Patterson and the appointment of M. L.
Malone, will be begun under tbe new adminis
tration this morning. The work which was
supposed to be defective, and over which there
was a great amount of commotion in the de
partment at Washington, is not so bad after
all. and inasmuch as some people would like to
see the whole building torn down and the piles
under it repainted this will not be done.
General Superintendent of Repairs upon
Government Buildings J. N. Paulson, of
Washington, arrived in tbe city yesterday
morning and proceeded at once to the sew
Postofflce, where he had been ordered for in
spection. He was taken in charge by tbe new
superintendent, Mr. Malone, who showed him
about the building and pointed out the defects
which had been reported to .Washington, Mr.
Pattison made a careful examination of the
building, and took especial pains not to com
municate tbe opinion he had formed to Mr.
Malone. Tbe inspector's report will be for
warded to Washington to-day or to-morrow,
and will not be made public until acted
upon by the department. When seen
last evening Mr. Pattison. would not say
what impression he had formed of
the work and whether there was
any grounds for the complaints about the de
fective workmanship ot Mr. Malone's prede
cessor. The Superintendent of Construction,
who now claims he did not say anything to tbe
newspapers here about part of the building
being out of plumb, and it would bo necessary
to stow work until it was Investigated, main
talned a dignified silence as to what would be
done by Mr. Pattison.
Mr. Malone stated last evening that work
would be begun to-day with a force of about 40
men. He would not say how much, If any, of
the building would nave to be torn down and
rebuilt. It is understood though that a num
ber of slifrht chancres in the clans will be made.
Part of the proposed work which was begun by
Mr. Patterson will be eliminated, but on tho
whole there will not be the tearing down which
was supposed would have to be made.
There has not beeh a piece of granite set on
the building for the past three weeks. At tbe
rate Mr. Patterson was going on with the work,
he might have had the greater part of tho re
maining half story in the center completed,
while Mr. Malone was waiting on tbe Depig
ment to senu an expert here to investigate
what bis predecessor bad done. At present
there are about 12,000 cubic feet of granite
lying on the ground, waiting to be placed into
position. Anotner snip containing more man
this number of feet is also on tbe way from
Maine, and will reach here long before
tbe present supply is laid. It will take
about six weeks to placo tbo 12,000 feet
into position. If there is no effort made to
drive additional pilos and paint their ends red,
white and blue, the work which will be begun
this morning will continue for at least 'three
months. The first work will be begun on the cen
ter of the building, which lacks 2 stories of
being completed. The fourdemckswhichitwas
found necessary to overhaul, and brush the
dust from tbo top of the mast, are in good
working order now, and there will be no diffi

would have the effect of pnsbing tbe work a
little more rapidly. The paper was as follows:

MANDAMUS AND CERTIORARI.
Difference Between Eastern nnd Local
Attorney Josiah Cohen, who is one of the
legal representatives of the Allegheny
'county wholesale liquor dealers, was yester
day asked what bearing the decision of the
Snpreme Court requiring tho License Court of
Philadelphia to show cause for the refusal of
license to the Prospect Brewing Company
would have upon local wholesalers' appeal. He
Essentially, tbe Philadelphia case is not
identical with the one which is now pending.
Ours is a writ of certiorari, in other words,
asking by authority, 'why docs the lower court
refuse license to a citzen of established repu
tation morally, and who has lived strictly up
to the requirements of tue law?' We expect
an answer this week."
A wholesale liquor dealer who is verv promi

in onr paper book Is lor the Supreme Court to
decide whether tbe lower court bas the power
in tbe cases of wholesale men to refuse a li
cense, if our records both morally and legally

A PUBLIC MEETING TO-NIGHT.
President Marvin Speaks of tbe Success of
the May Concerts.
A public meeting under the auspices of
the Exposition Society will be held in the
big bnilding at the Point to-night. The
people in general will be given an opportunity
to inspect the new building, hear the reports of

the Great Western Band. W. E. Schmertz
will preside, and the reporters will act as secre
taries. Jndge Collier, W. C. Moreland and
John.H. Kicketson will be tbe orators.
President Marvin said yesterday that the Ex
position Society deserves inuch of tbe glory for
projecting tbe May Festival. They didn't ex
pect to make any money, but it turns ont tbat
the society will receive a per cent of the re
ceipts. Mr. Marvin thinks the concerts were
the best over given beyond the Allegheny
Mountains, and he is greatly pleased. The so
ciety is now arranging to give an art exhibition
next fall in connection with tbe opening of tbe
Exposition that will be greater in its way than
the May Festival.

Carnegie's Employes to lie Given Un
til Jane 10 to Sign the Scale.
WAITING FOR THE CONVENTION.
The Amalgamated Wage Committee Will
Meet Friday Morning.
AEBITEATION PIAES BUILDERS' PAI
Carnegie, Fhipps & Co. have extended
the limit of time for the signing of the
agreement at their Homestead works to
June 10. The chances now are that there
will not be a strike, as the Amalgamated
Association convention comes in the mean
time, and will, in all probability, settle the
matter amicably with the firm.
The original intention oi the firm was to
give their employes until 12 o'clock noon
June 1 to sign tie new sliding scale. If
any of them did not do so by that time,
their positions wonld be declared vacant.
The firm would then look abont for non
unionists to take the vacated positions.
Considering the aggressive stand the
Amalgamated men took against the sliding
scale at their meeting last Sunday week, tbe
firm thongbt it best to modify the conditions.
They also desired to act as fairly as possible,
and giro tbe Association a chance to act upon
it at their convention, which will not he called
until June 4. For this reason the limit of time
was changed to June 10.
PLEASED, BUT HOT STARTLED.
At Homestead the men interested did not
seem surprised at the change. They took it as
something they had been expecting, and a
number of them stated that further concessions
would be made by the company. A repre
sentative of tbe firm, in speaking of tbe change,
"The fact of our having made tbe change is
not an indication of weakness. We only wish
to give our employes as much time as possible
to consider tbe matter. We recognized tbe
fact that they could not' sign tbe agreement
nithont violating their obligations to their
union. We think' the latter will indorse and
accept the scale. On account of the conven
tion not meeting until three or four days after
tbe limit of time allowed for signatures to tbe
scale the men would be handicapped. We ex
pect that the convention will take up this
matter and consider it before doing anything
else. Onr original intention was to allow them
an opportunity to discuss the matter, and we
will now hold the agreement in abeyance until
they do so.
"iio, we will not make any changes in the
scale. Mr. Carnegie has laid it down, and ex
pects to see it enforced. Tbe figures, which
have already been published, will have to
The Wage Committee of the Amalgamated
Association wifl meet Friday morning at the
headquarters of the Association, in the Mellon
building. A number of new names will boon
tbe committee list this year. They will be
published in The Dispatch Thursday
TO AMEND THE OLD SCALE.
The committee will take up the sug
gestions sent in by the different lodges,
and compile them in shape for present
ation to the convention. The latter will be
called in New Turner Hall, ono week lrom to
day. Considerable conjecture Is indulged in
among tbe people interested as to what the
Wage Committee will do. There is not tbe
least doubt that the scale to be submitted to
the convention will he the same as the present
one. The rate of 85 50 per ton for puddling
iron will be demanded. Whether the manufac
turers will agree to this or not, is a matter for
The Wage Committee will have finished tbeir
labors by Saturday. After the convention goes
through the formality of adopting the scale tbe
conference committee to present it to the
manufacturers will be appointed. For tbe first
time in the history of tbe association the com
mittee will have no committee of manufact
urers with whom to confer. The latter's as
sociation is disorganized, and none of them
have any desire to call a meeting. It has been
suggested that tbe scale be given to the mill
committees for presentation to their respective
employers. The scale will be civeu to each in
dividual manufacturer, who "can do as be
pleases with it. As there Is no association in
existence none 'of them will be nnder obliga
tions to withhold their signatures from tbe
scale. There will be no such thing as a manu
facturers' scale this year.
THEI SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE.
PItlsburs nnd Allegheny Stonemasons Will
Work for 39 Cents an Hoar This Year
How Arbitrators Settled It.
The dispnte between the stonemasons of
this city and Allegheny and the contrators
was compromised last night at the meeting
of tbe arbitrators, at the ball of the Builders'
Exchange, No. 59 ninth street. The stono
masons were represented on the board by
Messrs. Thomas Grundy and John Jarrett, the
employers' by John F.Trimble and W. H. Mc
Creery, and tbe umpire was Mr. John S.
On behalf of tbe masons, arguments were
made by George W. Creese, George Jones and
Robert Aiken, and for the contractors, A.
Alston, A. E. Knox and H. Kunkle appeared.
The workmen, who asked last year for 36
cents an hour, claimed 40 cents this year, but
have been working at 33 cents an hour pending
the award of the arbitrators. Tbe argument
at times waxed hot, and was somewhat per
sonal; but, on the whole, it was fairly good hu
mored, and at a rather late hour tbe arnitra
tors compromised bv splitting the difference,
making the rate 39 cents an hour, and these
figures will rule this year, though it js said the
battle is likely to be fought over again next
The employers contended tbat stone-layers
were not entit'ed to as much pay as stone
cutters. Messrs. Grundy and Jarrett held that 200 days
a year were all tbat a mason conld count on
making, and tbat the rate agreed nnon would
only give him 225 per day for the year, and
that he needed tbat much to support his fam
ily decently. It seems the masons had in some
way compromised themselves by admitting, at
some stage in tbe negotiations, that 39 cents
an hour was sufficient. Just bow this was
done was not explained, but it is said to have
had weight in causing tbe compromise verdict.
Jndge Agnew had been asked to act as um
pire, but he excused himself, and stated tbat
weight of 80 years began to tell on him, and be
had already work to occupy all his strength.
While business is very brisk in the building
line here, contractors contend that it is not so
in the vicinity generally, and say tbey cannot
make headway and pay higher prices when so
many people compete for small jobs, and far
ther that, on many small dwellings, contractois
are working hard to make wages themselves.
TO ABOLISH THE C0MPANI STORES.
A Convention of miners to be Held In This
City for That Purpose.
A convention of all railroad miners in
Western Pennsvlvania will be held at
Knights of Labor Hail, this city, to-morrow.
Tbo object is to devise ways and means
for tbo abolition of the company, or, as they
have been called, "pluck-me" store.
A number of delegates favor the stores and
will fight for their continuance.
A number of tho operators, who pay cash for
their labor, want the miners to abolish the
stores of their competitors.
THE STRIKE CONTINUES.
Wayne Iron Works' Men Paid Bencflts by
The strike at the Wayne Iron Works con
tinues, nothwithstanding reports that there
is no trouble at the mill. The Amalgamated
Association will begin to pay the men strike
benefits this week. There are about 2S0 men
men out, and the mill is idle.
Tbe firm wanted the men to work scrap steel
for the same price as puddle iron; but the meS
refused, and demanded SI more per ton.
ENGLISH PAYERS COMING.
An Allegation Thnt Booth & Flinn Also
Slay Violate tbe Labor Laws.
The members of Pavers and Bammers'
Assembly No. 6266, who are striking against
one of Booth & Flinn's sub-contractors, say
tbe firm are bringing pavers here from Europe.
Since the strike began, tbey say, three men
who came from the same place tbe Bootbs did,
in England, camo here and were pat to work.
They claim the firm is violating tbe contract
labor laws, and want tbe case investigated. .
HE HAS THE FAITH.'
SeJIers McKee Is Now Bnlldlns a Tank for
tbe Flint Factory-
General Manager M. J. Alexander, of the
"Western Land and Improvement Company
at Joannette,who went to Chicago last evening,
said that as soon as Sellers McKee was satis
fied that the tank system was a success, he
started to build one in tbe flint glass factory.
The ground for the new tank was broken a
few days ago. Mr. McKee expects to revolu
tionize the flint business also.
INJUNCTION AGAINST STRIKERS.
More Dnqnesne Men Enjoined by the Court
The strikers at Dnqnesne received several
hundred dollars yesterday from the mill
men at Braddock and Homestead. They are
still hopeful that they will win the strike.
C. C Dickey, Esq.. yesterday went before
Jndge Ewlng and obtained a preliminary in-
Junction, restraining William Bothranff and
hllip Kavanaugb, two of the strikers, from
interfering with the workmen at the works.
Tbe allegation was made tbat tbe two men
have been hindering the workmen and trying
to keep them from work.
I A Horse Steps on a Charged Wire and
. Gently SInka to the Earth Dead A Mnn
Knocked Back Ten" Feet by the Current.
A horse owned by Mr. Charles Maginn
was instantly killed by stepping on an elec
trified wire on Federal street, Allegheny,
yesterday afternoon. Shortly after 2 o'clock
Mr. Maginn was driving up Federal street in
bis buggy, accompanied by bis little son. He
turned off tbe car track, when his horse
stepped on a wire, one end of which was on
the lines ot tbe Allegheny Electric Light Com
pany and the other on the street. The horse
came to a standstill, quivered and sank an in
stant afterward in its own tracks, having the
appearance of becoming weak in the knees
and back and gently sinking to the ground.
Tbe incident was noted by some dozens of
people in tbe vicinity, all. of whom came run
ning to the spot almost before Mr. Maginn'
bounded irom his buggy. By intuition they
knew what had killed the horse.
Tbe whole trouble was occasioned by an acci
dent tbat conld not well be foreseen. The Al
legheny Are alarm wires were being repaired,
and some new sections of line were being put
in to replace some old wire. The men on the
poles were drawing the wire from a spool, and
as it passed over tbe wire of the light company
the insulation became torn and exposed. A
piece of tbe old wire was cnt off and thrown to
the ground, one end of it lodging on the ex
posed portion of the light company's wire. Tbe
current was thus carried to the ground just as
Mr. Maginn drove up.
A nuniDer oi accidents oi minor importance
occurred by reason of this one. The arc lights
in the immediate vicinity were all burned out
at tbe instant tbe horse stepped on the wire.
E. O. Jones, a barber, tried to pull the buggy
away from tbe dead horse, and catching hold of
tbe tire tbe electricity knocked him some ten
feet away. Mr. Smith, of the Farmers' Hotel,
near by, met with a similar mishap in attempt
ing the same feat
THE FAIRP0RT MEETING,
Tlce President Thomas Explains Why the
Mea Were Laid OiE
The stockholders of the Pittsburg and
Fairport Bailroad held a meeting yesterday
and re-elected the old directors. Mr. Anthony
J. Thomas is the President. They ratified the
lease of tho company's property to the Pitts
burg, Fairport and Northwestern Dock Com
pany. The directors elected are: Anthony J.
Thomas, T. II. King, F. L. Boboins, J. D. Cil
lery and L. Thomas.
Mr. Thomas, who ii the Vice President ot
the Pittsburg and Western road, said last
evening tbat the Fairport Company was pros
perous, and that last year it had carried
600.COO tons of ore. Concerning the Pittsburg
and Western, he said:
Recently freight rates were cnt onc-flfth, and a
'Corresponding reduction in the running expenses
or tho road nad to bo made. This Is why we laid
off some of the men. It Is necessary for the road
to economize wherever It can be done. When the
freight business Improves and we need more men
to handle the traffic tbey will be put on.
President Oliver arrived from the East yes-
teruay. lie stated tnat in tne tuture tne sur
plus revenues would be used in developing the
lake traffic of the road.
FROM NEW SOUTH WALES.
Charles L. Carland Chats Abont tho Ani
Charles L. Carland, of Sidney, New South
Wales, is at the Duquesne. Mr. Carland is
a member of the Legislature of the colony, and
'a newspaper man. Speaking of Australia last
night, ho said:
"We have about 40,000,000 sheep in the colony of
New South Wales, hut on account ot the cost of
labor we have but few woolen mills. The people,
however, are progressive and believe In free
trade. The railroads and telegraphs are owned by
the Government. About -30,000,000 are Invested
in lines. These roads are managed by three com
missioners In the Interest ot the people. When
they make more than 4 per cent on the capital
stock the freights arc reduced, or they use tbe sur
plus to extend the road. ' '
He said further that the population of his
colony at present is 1,500,000, and on an average
they absorb about 45 per cent of tbe increase of
people in Australia. He explained the Austra
lian system of holding elections, and claimed
for it that there can be no possibility of fraud
or collusion. Mr. Carland is on tbe way to
England, and concluded to go there through
the United States.

IT WAS K0 BOOM.
The Music Festival and the Merchant
They Have tbe Condolence of Railroad
nnd Hotel Men, Too.
A tour among merchants by reporters of
The Dispatch vesterday developed the
fact tbat the May Festival did not cause a
boom in business. It did not bring tbe
crowds to the city from surroundine towns
which a show of more general character
does. High class music, unfortunately is
not so attractive to the masses as a street
parade well broken np with drum corps, or as
an exposition itself with peanut and lemonade
stands at freqnent intervals, yet, two lines of
mercantile business did receive an impetus
from tbe week of music Tbey were the
flower and fashionable trimming stores. Both
were well patronized by the wealthier classes.
In this connection it may be said tbat tbe
May Festival was practically supported by
patrons from the two cities. Tbe railroads
offered liberal rates, but the weatber, unfor
tunately, was so disagreeable that tbe people
expected from the surrounding towns did not
come in. The reports of tbe railroads for the
week will not be ready for a few days; but the
passenger men say tbat tbey didn't begin to
carry enough people to make up for tbe low
rates offered, "and yet," said one agent yester
day, "if the rate of 3 cents bad not been made,
tbe roads would never have heard the lastof it.
The railroads lost money, for the accounts show
tbat our regular passengers took advantage of
the excursion rates."
The hotel men also expected big houses, hut
they were disappointed. The registers for the
week show no Increase of any account over the
amount of business usually done.
"I feel pretty sure," remarked a hotel clerk,
"that if the weather had been warmer the at
tendance at tbe concerts wonld hire been one
third larger, and the peoole would have come
in from neighboring towns."
