Vice President Eoberts Delivers the Ad
dress of Welcome.
A SUCCESSOR TO ME. JOHN JiESETT
'The fourteenth annual convention of the
Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel
Workers was called to order at 10 o'clock
yesterday morninc by President Weihe.
The Eastern delegates were not present, as
they are anchored at some point near Harris
burg on account of the flood and will sot
likely reach here before this morning.
President Weihe made a few remarks and
then appointed the Committee on Contested
Seats as follows:
James Swatman, John E, Cunningham, John
Good, John Matthews, George Vennum, James
McEldovrae y. Thomas H. Evans, IsaUhP&rkes,
F. G. Sullivan, P. H. McEvay, D. C. Marsh,
Joseph W. Rutledge, Harry Hoctlng.
This concluded the business of the morn
ing session, and the convention adjourned.
At 2 o'clock the committee reported on the
credentials of 171 delegates, and they were
seated. Some of them represented lodges that
were in bad'standlng, bnt the delegates paid np
all back dues and thus secured a place in the
It was decided to bold sessions from 9 A. at. to
12 JL, and from 2 to 5.30 p. u.
The convention was then formally organized,
and Vice President William T. Roberts, of the
First division of the First district, deliverea
the address of welcome to the delegates. It is
AIT AMALGAMATED 'WELCOME.
While It devolves npon me as a duty, yet I es
teem It a pleas are indeed, to bid you a hearty wel
come to our city Among you 1 see many old
familiar races: to you it is needless to say enjoy
yourselves. That you will do, so there is little
doubt from the fact that you have been here be
fore, and know the ins and onts of the city. But
to you who are strangers among us I would
sav that the members or the craft in the First dis
trict have a reputation for sociability that is far
rcacnlng, and they will only be too glad to assist
in maklnc vour visit one lone to be remembered.
And now, brothers, in telling you to have a pleas
ant time I do so feeling that you would consider
this only as secondary to the Important matter
which has brought you here. Our association has
reputation for Integrity and fair dealing second
to none in the history of its kind, and we as mem
bers should be proud to uphold the principles of
such an organization. I beg you, then, that in
your pursuit of pleasure your conduct will be
suth as will redound to the credit of us all.
I believe in mingling pleasure with business
when consistent, but I think that in this assem
bly the moment our president raps his gavel that
moment we should drop pleasure and devote our
selves entirely to the consideration of the many
Important questions that will come before us.
There Is little doubt but that yonr constituents
sent you here believing you to be the best fitted
among them to legislate for the best Interests of
our association, and I ask you not to betray that
trust in idling away the valuable time while in
session by idle gossip, but rather let us concen
trate our minds on the matter before us, and the
result will be such as will make us feel proud. Let
us make this a law abiding as well as a law making
body: banish from among us anything of a dis
turbing element: be kind and considerate lu our
actions toward each other, and 1 feel sure that
the old adage will prove true in this case, that
"all's well that ends well."
Thanking you for your kind attention, I again
bid you a hearty welcome to our city.

The Ft, Wayne Road Can't Handle Freight
Destined for Western Point.
All traffic on the Fort Wayne Railroad has
been suspended indefinitely. The crews on the
different trains have been laid off. This
means no pay to any of the men
except those needed in handling local freight.
Almost 1,000 men are laid off without pay and
will remain idle until the road is open, which
may be two or three weeks. The Pennsylvania
railroad is not able to handle any freight east

New York, June 4 Mr. and Mrs. John
Weiler came to Tottenville, Btaten island, from
New Haven, a short time ago. Tottenville is a

JS a blood disease. Until tne poison is
expelled from the system, there cart
be no enre for this loathsome and
dangerous malady. Therefore, the only
effective treatment is a thorough course
of Ayer's Sarsaparilla the best of all
felood purifiers. The sooner you begin
the better ; delay is dangerous.
" I was troubled with catarrh for over
two years. I tried various remedies,
and was treated by a number cf physi
cians, but received no benefit until I
began to take Ayer's Sarsaparilla. A
few bottles of this medicine cured me of
this troublesome complaint and com
pletely restored my health." Jesse M.
Boggs, Holman's Mills, 2f. C.
"When Ayer's Sarsaparilla was rec
ommended to me for catarrh, I was in
clined to doubt its efficacy. Having
tried so many remedies, with little ben
efit, I had no faith that anything would
cure me. I became emaciated from loss
of appetite and impaired digestion. I
had nearly lost the sense of smell, and
my system was badly deranged. I was
about discouraged, when a friend urged
me to try Ayer's Sarsaparilla, and re
ferred me to persons whom it had cured
of catarrh. After taking half a dozen
bottles of this medicine, I am convinced
that the only sure way of treating this
obstinate disease is through the blood."

A Timely Warning.
All tne physicians agree ihat Pittsburg
and Allegheny are in danger of disease and
death from the use of the river water in its
present impure and denied state. All ad
vise that the water be boiled and filtered be
fore using for cooking or drinking. We
therefore call attention to
Jewett's Water Filters,
Which are in fact, water filter and water
coolers combined. Prices range from $6 25
to 512 50. We have also cheaper filters,
but Jewett's is the best.
CHOCOLAT MEN1ER !
We take pleasure in announcing that we
have secured the sole agency in Pittsburg
which has been before the public since 1828.
It is undoubtedly the finest chocolate man
ufactured. The Menier Company own and
control extensive cacao plantations, operate
an enormous sugar refinery near Paris, and
employ 3,000 skilled laborers at their fac
tory. This chocolate received the highest
possible award (the Grand Prix) at the
Paris Exposition of 1878, besides four
awards at the Centennial. Its purity is
absolute and beyond question. Its delicacy
and flavor are without equal, and its merits,
both as a confection and as a nutritious
food, are acknowledged by the physicians
the world over. We propose to sell "Choc
olat Menier" at a price never approached
in Pennsylvania, viz:
40c a Pound and 20c 1-2 Pound.
COLD SPARKLING SODA WATER!
The Best in the Two Cities.
ICE-CREAM SODA WATER
ONLY 5 CENTS The usual price is 10c
Our Soda Fountain is nnder the charge of
Monsieur Jean Baptists Roche, lata of
Paris, who manufactures the syrups from
the fruit. We guarantee our syrups to be
absolutely pure, the juice of the fruit with
out any admixture.
