Of coarse the central point of interest to

Its sacred lnclosure -will gather tbe largest
crowds. There Is no greater diversity of scen
ery than may be there found, among the 400
acres of hills, valleys and woodland: but one
sweet spot is dearer above all others to the vet
erans, and that is what is commonly called "tbe
soldiers' flats." It is a wide area of bottom
land in a most charming rallev, near the lakes.
Tbe graves of some SOD soldiers killed in battle
or among the Tatally Injured from hospitals
are there grouped. In the center stands
the majestic monument erected to the
memory of these braves by tbe

EEFUSE' TO CONFER.
Ihe Iron Workers' Proposal Eejected
l)j tho Manufacturers.
LETTER FROM SECRETART WEEKS.
President Campbell Saya He is Willing to
MINERS OBJECT TO PIDCEME STORES
There will be no conference this year be
tween the iron manufacturers and the work
ers on the annual wage scale. This -will be
the first time in the history of the Amalga
mated Association of Iron and Steel Work
ers, which .was organized in 1874, that a con
ference has been refused by the manufact
urers. In past years tbe Manufacturers'
Association handled all such questions, and
appointed committees to meet the workers.
A. F. Keating was president and Joseph
I). "Weeks was secretary of the organization.
This association, however, went to 'pieces
last year, and when President 'Weihe, of
the Amalgamated Association, addressed a
formal note to Secretary Weeks announcing
that they were about to draw up a-scale ot.
wages for tbe comingyear and would appoint a
committee to confer with a like committee of
manufacturers, be received a reply from Secre
tary Weeks. In it Mr. Weeks stated that there
was no association of manufacturers and no
committee conld be appointed. Tbere will,
therefore, be no conference with the iron mas
ters this year and the lodges in each mill will
present the scale that will bo drawn up this
week and revised by the convention next week
to the different firms. Tbe scale
WILL BE TOTIFOBM,
and if any firm objects to a clause in the scale,
and it is modified, all other firms will have the
Secretary Martin has issued the following to
the members of 'the association :
In reply to the request orPresidenfWelhe to
the manufacturers, through Mr. Joseph 13. Weeks,
to name a day when they could meet a conference
committee ol the Amalgamated Association, Mr.
Weeks replied that there was no way by which
they can pet together a committee to represent the
association of manufacturers of Iron, steel and
nails, as It Is not now in existence. There is
nothlncr now left for the Amalgamated Associa
tion to do but formulate its new scale and present
It to each firm through the proper committees.
Now let every member of the Amalgamated Asso
ciation keep his own counsel. Uo all your busi
ness with your firm through tbe proper commit
tee, and in no other war. and await results.
President Weihe has selected the following
named persons as tho Wage Committee:

This committee will meet at tbe Amalga
mated Association headquarters to-morrow
morning, and consider the scale suggestions
mado ud by tbe different lodges in tne organi
zation. Tne work will require three or four
dars, but tbe committee expects to have the
scale ready for presentation to tbe delegates at
tbe convention when it meets next Tuesdav.
Tbe convention may make some revisions, and
tbe scale will then be printed and presented
to each firm by the Mill Committee.
Last year, it will be remembered, tbe confer
ence, agreed to disagree, and the same plan as
is proposed now followed. Oliver Brothers
Phillips was the first firm to drop into line and
sign the scale for their several large plants.
OTHEBS FOLLOWED SUIT,
Carnegie followed, and then a signed scale
from the Junction Iron and Steel Company was
received. Many within a week after the con
ference adjourned signed scales. Tbentbey
began to come in very rapidly at headquarters
until the middle of July, when Jones fc Laugh
hns. the largest iron firm affected, attached
their signature to tbe agreement. Tbis settled
tbe trouble, and all the others signed.
Tbe members of tbe association do not an
ticipate any trouble this year, notwithstanding
the fact that the manufacturers will not confer
with them. N one of them will venture a pre
diction as to what demand they will make, but
an agree mat it can ue saieiy stated tnat the
present scale, with some slight modifications,
will be presented.
The only hitch will be with the steel scale, as,
it is stated, Carnegie, Fblppsd: Co. propose to
make a fight on it. This trouble may be satis
factorily settled. If war is declared it is
claimed that tho workers can stand a siege'of
eight weeks very comfortably, as the funds in
tbe treasury are larger than usual.
The Labor Tribune, in commenting on tbe
wage question, editorially says:
There seems to be considerable trouble in the
newspapers about the arrangement of the figures
ofthecomiug scale year, and It may be that this
may extend into the Iron and steel Industiies"be
fore tbe annual signing Is done; .however, it Is
hardly within the probabilities that tbere will be
difficulties equal to those that have been In some
years in the past. The situation has Its main pe
culiarity In that trade has been so vervgoodln
England that wages have been advanced ma
terially, while In America this has not been tbe
case. As might be expected of business men, the
mill owners take the opportunity presented by
these condltlous to endeavor to mace a fewpolnts
on wages and on tbe terms of labor. There Is
nothing surprising In this; It would be surprising
were they to. permit the chance to pass unim
proved. READY TO BE TRIED.
Fresldcnt Campbell Talk About the Charges
to be Preferred Against Bint He Aka
for an Investigation.
The investigation on the arrival of the
foreign glass blowers will be held within a
week or two(land some important develop
ments are expected. A statement has been
made that President Campbell, of tbe
Window Glass Workers' Association, will
not enter into any investigation, but a friend
of his says that one of the members of the
Trades Council, who bad been appointed to
confer with the window glass men in regard to
the proposed investigation, had broken faith
with them and had the minutes of the meeting
Eublished in spite of the fact tbat the premise
ad been inaue to keep that part secret.
The members of the Window Glass Union
are very indignant, and they repudiate all the
charges made against tbem.
"There, were statements In those minutes
which tbe window glass men are guarding as
anxiously as anything, and they wpold not like
to see tbem published on any account," said
the friend. "These men committed a very
serions piece of indiscretion by giving such
things away. However, 1 am sure that the
window glass workers do not want to have any
more to do with tbe men, and the in
vestigation is off beyond a doubt,
"The Window Glass Association will draw np
a statement, and tbey will ask tbe Irades
Council to sne tbem in the United States Court
on tbe charges which they want to have in
vestigated now. If the Trades Council refuses
to do tbat then the window glass men will sne
themselves in court, and tbe entire thing will
come out anyway. Certain mert should have
treated tbe confidence of L. A. 303 in a little
more courteous manner. They had no right to
give away the financial minutes of the pro
ceedings of any of their meetings, and for that
reason tbey Tef use to have any more to do with
them. In my opinion the whole fight has been
nothing else than apolitical dodge from be
ginning to end."
President Campbell was seen at bis office by a
Dispatch reporter last night and said:- "We
have not refused to be investigated, and are
ready at any time to have a committee look Into
our books. We do not propose to sne ourselves,
but are willing to stand a suit if necessary as
wo have done nothing that is wrong. Our asso
ciation bas not named a man to act on tbe com
mtteewholsa member ot the organization,
but we have agreed on two men. They are John
Carey, amemberoftbe Amalgamated Associa
tion, who is employed at Jones & Langhlms'
mill, and William Kube, President of the Musi
cal Mutnal Protective Union. We are willing
to be investigated, and will consent to tho ap
pointment ot William Weihe as tbe fifth man.
He can come over here and examine our books
and all documents in our possession. I think
be is inclined to be fair, and all the members I
have spoken to are willing to allow tbe case to
go into bis bands. There seems to be an effort
on tbe pan of some ot the members of the
Kfilghtsot Labor to prove that I bad a band in
bringing theso men over, bntl will not say any
thing until the matter is tried." -
TflERE IS JtO SPLIT.
The Rnmors of Trouble- Between the Car
penters and K. of L. Are Denied.
A letter was received from P. J. Mc
Guire, of the American ;FetIeratIon oMJabor,
and one of tbe national officers of the Broth
erhood , of Carpenters and Joiners, yester
day, denying a statement recently published in
this city about the latter organisation, Tne
statement was to tbe effect that a split was
imminent among tbe carpenters, and that tbe
brotherhood would fight tbe K. of L.
Mr. McGuire denies that any general-officer
lias ever issued a circular notifying members of
the brotherhood that any of them whd are
members of the Knights of Labor cannot re
ceive sick, death or strike benefits. He adds
that he-and a few hundred other members jof
the brotherhood are members of mixed assem
blies of tbe Knights of Labor, are friendly to
harmonious relations: and be has recently been
In conference with Mr. T. V. Powderly. The
brotherhood has no objection to its members
joining mixed assemblies of the Knights of
Labor, bnt does not permit them to be in more
than one organization of carpenters.
Mr. McGuire is emphatic in bis assertions
tbat the American Federation of Labor has no
intention nf fighting tbe Knights of Labor, and
attributestbe stories of this nature that have
been circulated in Pittsburg within the past
year to someone who is envious of the good
name, progress and prosperity of the Carpen

as one who was a patriot a worthy citizen a
brave soldier a Kind, true and tender-hearted
man. Ho belonged to a class (I would It were
larger) of men who 1n a quiet, unostentatious
manner so conduct themselves as unconsciously
to win golden opinions from all sorts of neonle.
He was pure In nls life, honorable In his dealings
with his fellow men, firm In his friendships, for
giving to his enemies, and bas left behind him a
name well honored and esteemed.
In this quiet cemetery, where cosily marble
columns, pointing heavenward, and bumble,
stones, scarce reaching above tbe green
sward. mark the last resting place
of those who sleep, waiting till the
Master comes, reposes no moTe noble one than
him of wbom we speak. Hehas gone to that land
which nothing lucloses to fields and glorious
meadows so distant and so vast, tbat from Its con
fines no traveler has ever yet returned. He has
finished his fight and has now entered upon his
reward. He was of those of wbom your children
and your children's children may. when tbey read
tbe story of the past, with Its recital of deeds of
patriotism and unselfish devotion to conn try, say
theirs was indeed affection tor the land they loved
"Of foreign birth.be became an adopted citi
zen. He cherished the principles of the Constitu
tion of bis chosen country. When tbe band of
traitors was raised against tbe flag be was among
the first to volunteer for Its protection. How well
and nobly he discharged that duty we all
know. Around us to-day are gathered
men who served with blm In his
command, and who with eyes dimmed
with tears In silence tell a far greater storr of bis
bravery as a soldier, his kindness as an officer and
his worth as a man, than words of mine can do.
Never despairing always cheerful, he stood
shoulder to shoulder with tbem In many a hard
fought battle, animated at all times with the one
rand belief, and tbat that the cause for which
e suflered so much would in tbe end triumph.
"He lived until tbat belief became reality, and
saw tbe banner of tbe free float from the highest
fiolnt In the citadel of the enemy. I speak ieel
ngljr of blm. for I knew blm. If 1 praise blm
highly. It Is the praise f a friend. A braver,
truer, nobler, more generous man never lived,"
After the speaker had finished his very pa
thetic oration, the. Frobslnn sang another song
and Bev. Carl Weil pronounced the benedic
tion, which concluded tbe ceremony.

Abont Fifteen Delegates Will Go to tbe Na
The regular weekly meeting of the Alle
gheny County Brewers' Association was
held yesterday at their rooms ou Fourth
avenue. Tbe meetings, which were formerly
so prolific of spicy incidents and news items,
have now settled down into merely routine
At yesterday's gathering tbe most important
matter wss the discussion of Judge White's
speech at Old City Hall. The President of tbe
association, Mr. Straub, discussed It
at great length, and pointed ont
a "number of inconsistent remarks in
tbe address. Tbe statements made by Judge
White, while sitting in the License Court, were
shown to be at variance with some of bis re
marks Tuesday evening. The discussloujras
merely informal, and no action upon the matter
It was decided to send as many delegates to
tbe national convention as could possibly at
tend. In order to make as good impression upon
tbe national organization as possible and thus
help tbem secure aid. About 15 or 16 delegates
will go from this city. Tbe convention will be
held Tuesday, June 4,-ftt Niagara Falls. The
delegates will leave via the Allegheny Valley
Bailroaa Monday evening.
Tbe Campaign Committee reported progress
at the meeting, and was continued. The work

IK THE INTEREST OP THE U. P. CHUECH
Quite a romance, as well as an interesting
precedent, is attached to the five young men
recently appointed from the United Presby
terian Seminary in Allegheny to go as mis
sionaries to Egypt and India, notice of
which appeared in The Dispatch a few
days since. The five young men will sail
for the fields of their labor in the middle or
last of September. All are now single, but
it is understood that each one will carry to
his new home a bride and helpmate. At
least one of the young ladies is a Pittsburg
girl. The young men are now studying
and planning for their new work, and it is
supposed the five brides arc preparing their
trousseau and reading works on the .heath
ens, Incident to commencing their long wed
ding tour and honeymoon.
ihe youngmen's names are: K, 33. Fife, T. F.
Cummlngs andT. E. Holliday. who go to India,
and E. M. Griffin and W. M. Nichols, who will
labor among the Egyptians. They will not be
permitted to visit home or friends again for ten
years according to the agreement nnder which
tbey are sent. Five, young brides and five
grooms with more than the responsibilities of
mamed life suddenly cast on them will sail
away for heathen lands. ,
Three of the young men will bo sent and sus
tained for the ten years by churches. Mr. Fife
will be sent by the Second United Presbyterian
Church, Allegheny. Mr. Cummlngs by the
Fourth United Presbyterian Churcb. Alle
gheny, and Mr. Nichols by the Third United
Presbyterian Church; Pittsburg. Their sal
aries will be from SLZOOto 21,400 per year, and tbe
jnemuera uavu jjieugeu inemseives to give on
ferent sums per year in tbelr support, outside
of tbe regular missionary contributions. A
gentleman named Stewart, of Indiana, will
send Messrs. Griffin and Holliday.
WHERE THEY WILL GO.
Messrs. Griffen an d Nichols will land at Alex
andria, and, according to the present proposed
arrangements, will proceed to Asyoot, 200 miles
np the Nile river, wbere they" will spend abont
a year learning tbe languages and dialects they
will bave to encounter, at tbe Presley Memorial
Institute. Tbe latter was founded through tbe
beniflcence of Bev. J. D. Presley. late pastor
for 40 years of the First U. P. Church, Alle
gheny. Among the teachers at tbe school Is Miss
Jessie Hogg, sent and sustained by the Young
People's Missionary Society of tbe Second U.
P. Church, Allegheny, three years ago. From
the institute they will be assigned fields of
work In some of tbe towns or cities by the
Egypt Presbytery of the Church.
Tbey will labor principally among tbe Mo
hammedans and Copts. The latter are a fanati
cal race, who have some ideas of religion, but
very corrupt practices. Until the English
gained a nominal control over them tbey were
accustomed to put to death those of their
friends who professed religion in its true light,
and a missionary's life was not all pleasure.
But this is changed greatly now.
, Tbe heathen counties are districted off by
the different evangelical denominations so tbat
all may do the most workpossible without con
flicting. The United Presbyterians bave tbe
whole of Egypt, and are responsible to tbe
world for carrying the gospel to its multi
tudes. Messrs, Fife, Cammings and Holliday will
land at Bombay, and will then be assigned
teacners to learn tne languages wnicn tney wiu
have to use. The principal languages are the
HCTOOSXAHESE ANT TJBDTT,
but the dialects are countless and hard to
master. Tho region assigned to the United
Presbyterians in Iudia is called the "Three
Rivers" region. It is in the northwestern part,
and was the scene of tbe great Sepoy rebellion.
It touches the Himalaya Mountains on the
north. Its inhabitants number over 5,000,000
Although a missionary bas to leave bis
friends and give himself up wholly to tbe work
of the Lord, hl life is rarely ono of privation
In tbe present age. None of tbe luxuries of
life are denied blm. Tbey always bave com
fortable, though somewhat rude and novel
houses, and their salaries make it possible for
tbem to live verv comfortably. In a town of
any size wbere be is located, in a short time he
Is looked up to as authority and respected and
is often nominally chief. The climate is the
worst difficulty to contend with and unless a
man or woman is physically sound they often
come back to die or are buned in tbe land of
tbelr endeavors. Those tbat go now are sub
jected to a physical examination, according to
tbe rule of tbe United Presbyterian Churcb.
In addition to tbe five mentioned above, a
missionary will be sent by Zehla College, mak
ing six in all.

The children of Father McDermott's

ment will be very unique on account of nearly
all tbe performers being colored. In tbe per
formance they will be assisted by the best local
talent. Father McDermott is working hard in
the interest of tbe entertainment, and there
can be no doubt as to Its success. The mission
school, which the reverend gentleman bas
been conducting all winter, Is about to be
closed for the winter. Tbe growth ot the at
tendance was phenomenal.

ABODT FATHER HICKKT.
A Report That He Will Take Cbartie of tbe
A report was current in Catholic circles
yesterday that Rev. Father Hickey, pastor
of St. Thomas' Church at Braddock,hadbeen
offered the pastorate of St. Peter's Pro
Cathedral in Allegheny. It was stated that
Father Hickey's friends In Braddock were tbe
authority for the statement. An effort was
made to see tbe reverend gentlemen, but he is
ill. and is preparing to take a trip to Virginia
for the benefit of bis health.
The rumor was to the effect that the place
was tendered and bad been accepted by Father
Hickey. He was to take charge of tbe Alle
gheny parish upon the date of the removal of
Bishop Phelan to tbe episcopal residence on
Grant street. This was to be done in a few
days, and was made necessary by the reunion
of the two dioceses. When Bishop Phelan was
made coadjutor he still retained bis pastorate
at the pro-cathedral.
Father Hickey is probably tbe oldest priest
in the diocese, and Would welcome a change.
When he was sent to Braddock be was promised
tbe first chance at any vacancy tbat might oc
cur in tbe diocese. Tbe people of tbe thriving
little borough wbere be now is, will be very
sorry to see him leave. Under his pastorate a
magnificent church and school building was

When be started to leave the house for work
after dinner she protested and said she did not
want him to go away.
Mr. Weiman insisted on going, however, but
haa only gone a few steps from his house when
he beard a shot. Running back again he found
bis wife lying on tbe floor unconscious. Tbere
was a bullet wound in her left temple and she
held a revolver in her band.
Mrs. Weiman was removed to tbe Homeo

scious. She is not expected to live. An unsuc

Yesterday was "open day," or rather a
public reception -was given at the Forbes
street school, and it was an occasion of gen
eral enjoyment to the teachers, pupils and
visiting people alike. The day is chosen
annually for the pleasing exercises, as in its
wake follows Decoration Day, and for this,
reason a profusion of flowers were furnished
by the pupils to aid in the decorating of
graves to-day. About 850 pois of blooming
-plants were donatedby the scholars, r
This Institution is probably the largest in the
city, containing 23 rooms, and having an enroll
ment of 1,200 names. The exerciser are carried
out in each room, and a vast amonnt of energy
and patience must have been shown by tne
teachers in their respective charges to bring
about such faultless results, as was demon
strated yesterday. ,,
To speak of features singly would be WMie,
as the entertainment was one big event on tne
whole. Every room exhibited something
novel, and especially was tbe manuscripts or
tbe pupils meritorious. Tbe other features
were the freehand drawing specimens, one ol
which in room 21 was a school bouquet of varie
gated colors In which the artistic touch of every
pupil added finish and beauty to It. This
WAS ESPECIALLY ADMIBED.
Tbesinging, gymnastics and drill were wortt

dreamed of such scholastic progress smce tbe
days when "readin', writln' and arithmetic"
