THE- PITTSBXTRGk DISPATCH; TOESDAX, 'JUNE 11,1 188!"
1 - -
A;VERY LARGE JOKE,
That is What the Workmen
Call Homestead's Scale.
WILL NOT CONSIDER IT.
The Regular Amalgamated Scale 'Will be
Presented, nud, IT it U Not Accepted
July 1, There Will be a Strike Progress
of Convention Work Other Labor News.
The limit of time for the signing of the slid
ing wage scale by their employes at Homestead,
allowed by Carnegie, Phipps fc Co., has been
acaiu extended, from June 10 until July L This
is considered another evidence of weakness by
the men, who now maintain that the next thing
to be done will be the withdrawal of the scale
At the convention of the Amalgamated Asso
ciation yesterday the following notice was read
by the Homestead delegates:
"Referring to the notice dated ilay IS, If it be
yourdeslre to remain in otir employ at tla Horae
ctead feted Works after July 1, please 6lgn and re
turn Ja the enclosed envelope the form or agree
ment herein contained."
The notices were signed by Carnegie, Phipps
t Co W. L. Abbott Clhairman. and had been
left at the homes of the workingnren in Home
stead yesterday morning. They were dis
tributed by two news agents in the town, who
have made many enemies among the men by
their actions. The latter say they will with
draw their patronage Irom the men, and unless
other news agents are employed the news
papers will be the sufferers.
Trying to Influence Families.
The fact of the notices of agreement which
were inclosed in a stamped envelope addressed
to the firm, beinc left at thehouses of the men,
is takrn by the employes to mean that an at
tempt was made to lay the matter before the
wives and families of the men and have them
use their influence to obtain signatures to the
agreement. If such was the case the men for
whom they were intended said the scheme did
not work. The women are more emphatic than
the men in their protestations against the scale.
A case of one woman was related yesterday.
She was the wife of a puddler and had made ar
rangements to take a Western trip to visit her
relatives. She had outlined an expenditure of
several hundred dollars for clothes, but when
she heard the news that the firm proposed a"Te
duction, she advised her husband to strike
stgainstit Instead of buying herself some new
clothing she paid one year's rent in advance
and began to economize in view of the strike.
What 10 Do With the Notices.
When the notices were received jesterday
morning, a number of suggestions were made
as to the disposition of them. It was stated
that none of the notices would be signed by
the men and most of them were torn up and
thrown into the street. One man wanted
them (about 2,000 in number) to be placed in a
large box and a bonfire made of them. The
man further suggested that a parade headed
by a brass band precede the procession.
"As a body, the Amalgamated Association
think the scale to be such a large joke that
they refuse to take any action on it whatever.
They will present their scale to the firm the
same day as it is given to the other manufac
turers and leave them to peruse and dispose of
it as they see fit. If the scale is not signed by
xnidmebt June SO, the men will qmt work and
the mill be thrown idle. The employes claim
there Is so much money in the Amalgamated
treasury that they can afford to be idle for a
year. If the firm can stand this, the employes
say that they are ready to try a couple of
rounds with them.
All Clauses of Labor.
, A feature that has been developed since the
firm first announced the reduction is that every
class of labor in the mills has been taken into
the association, with the exception of common
laborers and bricklayers. This will strengthen
the organization in the mills, which gave em
ployment last month to 2,917 men.
At the convention yesterday an application
was received from the nut workers of the city
to be allowed to organize under a charter from
the association. A resolution was adopted
protesting against the action of Chief Robert
C.; Elliott and Assistant Superintendent Roger
G Mara. While the Amalgamated Associa
tion was passing down Fifth avenue on Sat
urday morning the two officials urged a Fifth
.Avenue TractionXJompany's gripman to break
Piesldent Weihe named Reese W. Prosser
as their representative to the Paris Exposition.
The convention then nominated the President,
with Mr. Prosser as first alternate. The after
noon was wholly taken up with committee
work. The friends of Stephen Madden are
quietlv hustling for votes for his election to
the office of Secretary. Secretary Martin will
probably be elected President, vice William
weihe. who will refuse to again be a candi
date. The convention will not adjourn before
- the middle of next week.
THE MILL SHOT DOWJf.
A Strike of Shear Crews at Millvale Stops
The Millvale Iron Works, formerly operated
by Graff, Bennett fc Co, but latterly being run
by the Millvale Iron Company, limited, were
shutdown yesterday afternoon, owing to a
strike in the ore department.
The men who caused a stoppage of work are
those who worked at the shears, and they
struck for a raise in wages. They have been
receiving $1 40 per day, but demand that they
get SI CO at one plate mill, while they think
that J2 per day would be proper at a larger
plate mill. In consequence of this strike
nearly 300 men were compelled to quit work.
Most of the strikers are Hungarians.

Political Assessments Cause n Breeze In tho
Common -Branch Other Matters
Alnke Some Lively Talk
Both branches of the Pittsburg Council met
yesterday afternoon. In tho Select branch
resolution was passed extending the sympathy
of tho city to the Johnstown sufferers, com
mending the efforts of Mayor AfcCalUn and
Chief Brown, and expressing the opinion that
the State should tako up the work of clearing
up the wrecked city. Appropriate resolutions
i ere passed on the death of David Aiken, Jr.
Among the ordinances passed was one au
thorizing the erection of a police station in the
Thirty-sixth ward; one authorizing the City
Controller and Treasurer to close up certain
accounts with deficient depositories and Street
Commissioners, and one making it illegal to
distribute advertising matter from wagons in
tho streefand fixing the penalty at $& Mr.
Paul and Mr. McCord presented remonstrances
from property holders against the ooening and
widening of Williams street. A dispute be
tween them regarding the signers of their re
spective remonstrances ended humorously, the
Council voting to lkavo the whole matter to a
committee of two, and placing Mr. Paul and
Mr. McCord on that committee.
An ordinance regulating street parades was
opposed by Mr. Warm castle, and defended by
Sir. Keating. The former thought that no one
man ought to have so much power as the ordi
nance would delegate. Before action could be
taken, a motion to adjourn was carried.
Qunrrels In, the Lower Honse.
In the Common Council yesterday there were
two characteristic squabbles. The first was
over the ordinance for the widening of Dia
mond street. After a contest to which'neither
Shiloh nor Antietam is worthy to be com
pared, action on this ordinance was postponed
until the opinion of the City Solicitor could be
obtained on the city's liability in the matter.
Some felt .that Council lacked information on
this subject, and condemned the Board of View
ers for not responding to their request for a de
tailed statement. Some made eloquent ap
peals for property owners on Diamond street;
and others urged deliberation on the gionnd
that it was common talk about the city that
the Council was always rushing into things,
and spending public money without knowing
what it was doing.
The second squabble was precipitated by a
motion to reconsider action in concurring with
the Select house in its refusal to pass Mr. F er
guson's resolution to investigate the political
scandal over the assessments npon firemen and
policemen. The motion prevailed, but by this
time there was almost pandemonium, and a
motion to adjourn was carried, amid great con
fusion. The Last and Liveliest Fichu
Of the two fights the last mentioned was
possibly the breeziest. It was introduced by
Mr. Kerns, who said that Mr. Fergnson
thought the Council had trampled on his feel
ings, and with the same feeling that wonldlead
him to aid the Johnstown sufferers he would
move that Council reconsider its action.
Mr. Carnahan wanted to know what those
resolutions were based on. Mr. Ferguson an
swered "Common report." Mr. Carr said1 "It
is said that Foreman Hopkins, of the South
side, was discharged for refusing to pay his
assessment. He got work in a mill and was
'killed. That is common talk. If it is not trno
let us clear the skirts of the department of this
Mr. Mullinsaid: "It is eaually well known
that each fireman pays 1 per cent, of his salary
a year as a political assessment." '
Mr. Ferguson and President Holliday had an
animated discussion after the meeting. Mr.
Ferguson couldn't understand how the. ma
jority was for adjournment when he hid 19
members with him to only 9 against him. He
vowed that his day would come yet, and left in
a wrathful mood.
THE KEW DEPOT.
Baltimore nnd Ohio Trains Now Run From
tbn Splendid Edifice at Smlthfield Street.
The new depot of the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad Company, at the foot of Smlthfield
street, was formally opened by the officials of
that road yesterday. The officials present at
the opening were Superintendent Patton, who
has done yeoman service at Johnstown since
the disaster; P. H. Irwin, Resident Engineer at
Baltimore, and A. H. Biehler, Chief Architect.
The business offices have not as" yet been trans
ferred, bnt the disgusting old depot on Water
street win never De used again.
The Baltimore and Ohio people are making
strenuous efforts to have everything running
smoothly on the main line in the East, and
each train coming in makes better time than
the last. They are still carrying all the per
ishable freight and live stock of the Pennsyl
vania Railroad freight traffic, because they are
making so much better time. The Pennsyl
vania Railroad are running their trains
th rough to the East over the Allegheny Valley
and Philadelphia and Erie lines, and on an av
erage about six hours behind the usual time.
The difference in the mileage between the
present and regular runs is but 97 miles, yet
the train from Philadelphia due here at 11
o'clock last night was not to arrive until 6
o'clock this morning. The Pennsylvania peo
ple, however, are working hard, and expect ere
long to run over the old line.
The Pittsburg division, west of Altoona, will
probably be fixed up sufficiently to allow of the
running of trains by night.

IT MAKES HYPOCBITES.
PROHIBITION TiOT SUCCESSFUL
TOWNS OF OVER 80,000.
The Laws Are So Frequently Broken ns to
Slake Them Farcical A Substi
tute to bo Found.
"In no city of 20,000,inhabitants or over
has prohibition ever proved a success," said
Robert Ellis Thompson, Professor of En
glish Literature and Political Economy at
the University of Pennsylvania, a few days
ago. "It conduces to. cheating ana trickery
and makes every man either a hypocrite or
a detective of hypocrites, causing a deteriora
tion of the moral tone of the whole com
munity. It is all very well to argue that
prohibition is necessary, though it will not
prohibit, just as a law against theft is need
iul, although it does not absolutely prevent
stealing. Whenever1! shall find in a mpd-erate-sized
city that the law against stealing
has been broken 2.000,000 times in one year
I will agree that that law had better be re
moved from the statute books. The prohib
itory law was broken 2,000,000 times in a
year in Boston, and I take that as sufficient
evidence ot its impracticability TJnless
public opinion stamps a law with its ap
proval that law is of little effect
THEEE MUST BE A SUBSTITUTE.
"Comte's maxim that nothing can be
abolished until it is replaced applies ad
mirably to the saloon. Until some other
social center shall have beenjirovided the
saloon must continue to attract its thou
sands. I believe the establishment of cheer
ful coffee houses, where men could congre
gate to read, smoke, play games or converse,
would do more for the destruction of the
saloon power than the most stringent pro
hibitory measure. The majority of men
drink not because they enjoy it but because
they crave sociability. They can find it
only in the saloon, and their drinking is
merely an incident. Their homes are un
attractive, and they must have some place
to spend their evenings. Until society shall
furnish a substitute this class of men will
not permit the saloon to be destroyed.
Legally or illegally, they will still fre
I" "The workings of the Brooks law have
been very beneficial to the city, though there
is room for much expansion and improve
ment. I wonld abolish the license fee
entirely, as I consider that unimportant,and
I would exercise still greater caution in the
selection of licenses. I would have the
screens removed from doors and windows, so
that the saloon could be plainly viewed
from without, and I would have earlier
closing hours. Then, too, "I would consid
erably reduce the number of saloons in the
vicinity of the railway stations and public
PROHIBITION AND COMMUNISM.
"Apart from the ineffectiveness of pro
hibition. I disbelieve in its principle. I
consider tobacco almost as great an evil as
whisky, yet it would be folly to suggest its
prohibition. There are many abuses con
nected with the use of property, and in
urging common ownership ofland the Com
munists make as strong an argument as the
Prohibitionists. Both are mistaken in con
sidering that the abuse of what is in itself
harmless warrants its abolition. Thongh'a
heartless landlord may evict his wretched
tenants, that fact furnishes no reason why
every man should give up his acreage; nor
should the drunkenness of one poor fool give
pretext for the banishment of every pint of
beer, wine and other liquor."
Who Know Something; About Government.
"Our legislators are not sufficiently ap
prized of the rightful limits of their power;
that their true office is to declare and en
force only our natural rights and duties,
and take none of them from us. No man
has a natural right to commit aggression on
'the equal rights of another; and this is all
from which the law ought to restrain him;
every man is under the natural duty of con
tributing to the necessities of society and
this is all the laws ought to enforce on him;
and no man having a natural right to be
the judge between himself and another, it is
his natural duty to submit to the umpirage
of an impartial third. When the laws have
declared and enforced all this, they have
fulfilled their functions, and the idea is
quite unfounded that on entering into so
ciety we give up any natural right."
JOHN QTjrNCY ADAMS.
"Forget not, I pray you, the right of per
sonal ireedom. Self-government is the
foundation of all our political and social
institutions, and it is by self-government
alone that the law of temperance can be
enforced. Seek not to eniorce upon your
brother by legislative enactments that vir
tue which he can possess only by the dic
tates of his own conscience and the enerev
of his own free will."
"Prohibition -will work great injury to
the cause of temperance. It is a species of
intemperance within itself, for it goes
beyond the bounds of reason, in that it at
tempts to control a man's appetite by legis
lation, and in making crimes out of things
that are not crimes. A prohibition law
strikes a blow at the very principles on
which our Government was founded. I
have always been found laboring to protect
the weaker classes from the stronger, and I
never can give my consent to such a law as
you propose to enact. Until my tongue
shall be silenced in death, I willcontinue
to fight for the rights of men."
"I owe it to the snbject and to the friends
of the measure to add the expression of my
beliet tnat intemperance cannot be extir
pated by prohibitory laws; they are not
consistent with sound principles of legisla
tion. Like, decrees to regulate religious
creeds or forms of worship, they provoke re
sistance where they are designed to force
obedience. The effort to suppress intemper
ance by unusual and arbitrary measures
proves that the Legislature is attempting to
do that which is not within its province to
enact, or its power to enforce; judicious
legislation may correct abuses in the manu
facture, sale or use of intoxicating liquors;
it can do no more. All experience shows
that temperance, like other virtues, is not
-produced by lawmakers, but by the influ
ence of education,.morality and religion."
GENERAl TJ. S. GRANT.
"I know from my own experience that
when I was at West Point the fact that to

SAMUEL J. TILDEN.
"It is no part of the duty of the State to
coerce the individual man, except so. far as
his conduct may affect others; not remotely
and consequentially, but by violating rights
which legislation can recognize and under
take to protect. The opposite principle
leaves no room for individual reason and
conscience, trusts nothing to self-culture
and substitutes the wisdom of the Senate
and Assembly for the plan of moral govern
ment ordained by Providence. The whole
progress of society consists in learning how
to attain ty the independent action or vol
untary association of individuals, those ob
jects which are 'at first attempted only
through the agency of government, nnd in
lessening the sphere of legislation and en
larging that of the individual reason and
