The Anti-Amendment People
Glaiming the State
BY A YEEY BIG MAJOBITY.
They Place Their Figures at Some
thing Over 150.000.
THE PROHIBITIONISTS SMILE,
And Say That Nothing is JToro Certain
Than Their Success.
TVOEK OP THE TWO COMMITTEES
The Anti-Prohibition Campaign Commit
tee shut themselves up in their committee
room all day yesterday, receiving returns
from different parts of the State and figur
ing on the result. Rear the door to the
committee room, in an improvised ice
box, was a goodly supply of all
kinds of liquors and the glasses
clinked merrily more than once. The re
porters were kept in the dark as to the pro
ceedings until the last moment Secretary
Kinimerick was the last man to leave the
room, and as he darkened the street door he
was met by a Dispatch reporter, and
later gave him the tollowing table compiled
from the latest advices from the different
chairmen throughout the State.

THE CLAIM IS PHILADELPHIA.
According to the latest returns, the antis

85,000. They would not talk about Alle
gheny City, but referred to the gains at
A call was made at the rooms of the
county committee of the amendment people
at a late hour last night and all were found
busy. A large force was still busily en
gaged in assorting and preparing for the
mail and other methods of distribution, the
last of the millions of pamphlets that are
being sent out by the temperance people.
Secretary A. H. Leslie was asked as to
the probable result next Tuesday and re
plied, "We are going to win.'"
When told of the claims of the anti
amendment people and their figures on
the State and Allegheny county, he
laughed and said, '! know of no
better way of replying to this than to quote
from an editorial: "Both sides are abso
lutely incapable of indicating the result
with even a remote approach to a correct
diagnosis of the situation.
"Now, while the liquor men appear con
fident, our people are equally confident.
Our confidence is based on cartful calcula
tion, made up from trusty reports obtained
by this committee from all parts of the
State. We do not base our confidence on
generalities, but we have the cold figures to
indicate that those of the opposition in
many districts are not correct.
A QUESTION op VEBAcrnr.
"Many districts throughout the State
have been persistently claimed by the antis
and figure always in their estimate of the
majority, while we have absolute proof that
many ot these, instead of being on the antis'
side, will be found giving us even, greater
majorities than is claimed they will give
As for the claim of the antis that they
would carry Allegheny county, Secretary
Leslie said: "I believe as firmly as I be
lieve anythihg that we have not only a
fighting chance to win, but I believe the
vote of Tuesday will develop surprises
in the way of a monster vote. And, while
we may lose in the city of Pittsburg, I feel
confident that we will more than overcome
it by an overwhelming vote from Alle
gheny City and from the boroughs and town
ships. "We have made a systematic canvass
and have reached nearly every voter in the
county with our ablest arguments, and we
feel satisfied that we will not onlv carry
Allegheny county by a good majority, bat
feel confident of seeing the old Keystone
State swing into line with the others that
have declared for temperance.
"You can mart: this thing down as a cer
tainty, that we are going to win. We do
not give figures for reasons given you before,
but you may put it in The Dispatch in
big type that we are going to win."
HOW THE BETUBlfS "WILL COME.
The Western Union Telegraph Company
has made complete arrangements for re
ceiving the returns next Tuesday evening
irom all over the State on the vote cast for
or against the amendment. Superintendent
Eowe yesterday received a dispatch from
Superintendent Gill, of the Sixth dis
trict, telling him he would depend on

counties: Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver,
Butler, Blair, Cameron, Cambria, Clarion,
Crawford, Elk, Erie, Green, Indiana, Jeffer

send the returns in as soon after 7
P. m. as possible. They, in
turn, will notify all officers in the
county to send the returns -at their
office into the county seat. The returns, of
course, will be received at each county seat,
in additioa( to the outlying towns, the
Western Union hope to reach before their
returns are handed in at the county seat,
should they be late in doing so.
The managers of the offices at the county
seats in .air. Bowe's district will send the
returns to him here, and he will send them
on to Superintendent Gill's office in Phila
delphia. Superintendent Gill will have the
same arrangements in his district, and send
the reports to Superintendent Eowe at Pitts
burg. TABULATED IN PHILADELPHIA.
At the prohibition headquarters in Phila
delphia tie returns will be tabulated.
Superintendent Eowe said yesterday that
he thought the whole result would be
known by 11 o'clock, as the count would be
short, with no scratched tickets, etc., as in
other elections to bother the counters.
The amendment people will have aloop
put in their headquarters in the Bissell
Block, with a good operator. Several pri
vate parties will also have loops put in.
The majority of such arrangements will be
The antis will not have a wire put in, but
receive their returns by private messages.
The Postal Telegraph will not give the
returns. Their Superintendent said yes
terday that the v had no calls for wires until
it was too late to make arrangements.
THE ALLEGHENY LADIES.
Abont 20 ladies of the Allegheny Consti
tutional Amendment Committee met yester
day afternoon in the Sixth V. P. Church,
corner of Arch street and Montp ornery ave
nue, to hear reports of committees on the
arrangements made for election day. It has
been arranged to erect booths near all the
voting places where ice water and lemonade
will be served.
From four to six ladies of the differept
churches will beat the polls. A movement
is also on foot to have at least 300 children
hauled in wagons from precinct to precinct
to sing temperance songs. Arrangements
for this latter have not yet been completed,
but a special meeting is called for 4:30 on
Monday afternoon to be held in the Sixth
Presbyterian Church to decide on the ques
tions. A meeting is also called for between 8
and 0 o'clock iu the morning in the same
church to take action on other matters not
TICKETS AKD CIRCULAES.
At the headquarters of the Allegheny
Constitutional Amendment Committee on
North Avenue 14 ladies and about an equal
number of gentlemen were hard at work
yesterday finishing the work lor the elec
tion. The ladies were inclosing in envelopes a
circular and three election tickets. As
there were 25,000 circulars and 75,000 tick
ets to be placed in envelopes and the enve
lopes sealed, it kept the ladies busy from
early in the morning until late in
the afternoon. The gentlemen were
engaged in various other occupations. The
election tickets will be delivered at all the
house in Allegheny by special carriers on
Monday night. None will be sent by mail.
The reason for not delivering the tickets
sooner is to prevent fraud.
A gentleman spoken to at the committee
headquarters said: "Allegheny will go for
the amendment, and in my opinion strong.
This is, of course, if a fair count is made,
and also provided the Bepublicans do not
put their machinery to work against us.
They will hardly dare to do that, though.'
Mr. D. H. Burwell, of Erie, who was
also at the headquarters, said that Brie
county would be for the amendment by a
large majority. Brie city will be a against
prohibition bya smail majority. He further
said that Corfy and Union City would give
three votes for the 'amendment to every one
against. He also said that Crawford coun
ty, which adjoins Brie, will be for the
A Santbside Meeting.
Mr. A. C.Bankin addressed a prohibitory
amendment meeting at Salisbury Hall,
Southside, last night He said a change of
conditions would help men to stop drinking
and the morals of the community would be
raised to a higher plane.

A GREAT OVATION

Lender nnd Protectionist, Last Nlaht
An Address by nn Iron Master.
John Jarrett, one of Pittsburg's greatest
labor leaders, a pronounced protectionist,
the man who knocked out Horizontal Bill
Morrison, the man who put the Amalga
mated Association on a solid footing and
who has always looked after the welfare of
the' wageworkers, received a big ovation at
Lafayette Hall last night. Mr. Jarrett will
shortly leave Pittsburg and assume the
duties'of United States Consul at Birming
ham, England, and his friends and the St.
David's Benevolent Society invited him to
meet them before he departed to fill the im
portant mission intrusted to him by Presi
Fully 1,000 persons assembled at the hall
last evening. Mr. T. C. Jenkins presided
at the meeting. Hon. Miles S. Humphries
was introduced to the audience and after
paying a high tribute ,to Mr. Jarrett, pre
sented him with a handsome gift on be
half of the St. David's Society. Mr. Jarrett
responded in a short address, saying there
was more pleasure in giving than receiving,
but when such an expression of good will
accompanied the gift it was more pleasant
to receive. He then spoke on protec
tion and classed tree trade with
slavery and protection with liberty.
He said that the highest honor that could
be conferred upon a man was to class him
as an honest workingman. During the
years he has been in America he believed he
had worked conscientiously to uphold wages
and labored in the interest of the working
classes. Wherever he goes and wherever
his lot may be he will alwavs adhere to
these principles. He thanked the St.
David's Society and his friends for this
special mark of respect.
Mr. John Henry, of theChartiers Boiling
Mill Company, who was to have delivered
the address of the evening, was unable to be
present and his address was read by Mr. W.
J. Jones, Cashier of the People's Savings
At the conclusion of the address Messrs.
Jenkins Jones, Evan Jones, William
Weihe, William Martin, Albert Edwards
and others made a few remarks.
The addresses were interspersed by sing
ing by the Welsh male chorus, under the
leadership of Prof. D. J. Davis. -

QUEEIES ABOUT TUB LITTLE UNKNOWN
The duties of the Citizens' Belief Com
mittee at the Chamber of Commerce were
brought practically to a close last evening,
as tar as holding continual sessions at the
Chamber are concerned. Hereafter the
office of the Executive Committee will be
held in room 8, Germania Bank building,
and the place will be in charge of Prof. A.
E. Frost and J. J. Burke. "David Bobin
son and Treasurer Thompson will superin
tend the work. The committee think
there will be plenty of work for them to do
for probably months to come, but
the work is now in such a
shape that they find that their
presence is not now required at the cham
ber all the time. Then again their own bus
iness interests are suffering severely for the
want of proper attention, and it is a relief
to them to get back to work.
The committee yesterday notified Super
intendent Eowe of the Western Union Tele
graph company to take out the private wire
that has been in use by the company since
the flood. In their letter to Mr. Bowe tho
company spoke very highly of Operator
Brooks, who has worked the key for them
since the start
Hardly any business was transacted by
the committee during, the day, except that
of a thoroughly routine nature.
The committee met at 1 o'clock yesterday
to meet with ex-Dictator James B. Scott,
the latter arrived shortly after and was
closeted with the committee for about 15
minutes. He spoke mainly on the work
performed at Johnstown, but did not render
any specifio report. He is as yet in
A BATHES FATIGUED cbNDITIOiT
and hardly equal to the task at present.
What his are views on the work and condition
of things at Johnstown, spoken of at the
meeting, could not be learned.
Chairman McCreery and S. S. Marvin
will this morning go up to Jonnstown to
look over the place and familjarizethem
selves with the work done, and what is still
needed to be done, on the part of the com
mittee. Chairman McCreery was decidedly indig
nant yesterday over the publication ot an
editorial in the sensational Chicago Times,
charging the committee with a useless frit
tering away of the funds intrusted to their
care. Mr. McCreery denounced the edito
rial in the strongest terms, and complained
that it was unfair to the committee if they
could say nothing in its favor.
Treasurer Thompson desires (to publicly
express his thanks to the following gentle
men, who are all bank clerks, and who have
worked night-and day in order to keep the
committees accounts and collections all
straight. The names of the gentlemen are:
J. D. Lyon, Walter Eraser, John D.

Edward h. Washburn,
Mr. Thompson immediately answered the
letter informing them that the Pittsburg
Belief Committee intend to continue the
work of caring for the sufferers and asking
them to forward the money. Mr. Thompson
also notified Burgess J. O. Young, of South
Fork, to draw on him for 5,000, and to in
form him what supplies were needed.
The committee have posted a sign ai the
street door announcing that passes are no
longer necessary to go to Johnstown.
All of Booth"& Flinn's men who have
not as yet received their money will be paid
off at the Chamber of Commerce to-morrow
at 1 o'clock. With the conclusion of yes
terday's work, the committee retires from
a labor of love for a suffering humanity.
For two weeks they have worked
incessantly. Day and night has found
them at their post, never flinching, never
complaining, and striving with might and
main to do all that lay in human power to
alleviate the sufferings of a people who, in
one short moment, had lost their all, rela
tives, friends, homes, money, work, and
everything that made life worth living, and
the committee, has succeeded admirably in"
doing whatever could be thought of to make
these people again have some faith in hu
mankind. As the committee cease from
their work, it is safe to assume that thou

TVOBK OP THE "WOMEN.
"Man's work is done at set of sun, but
woman's work is never done."
Although the committee at the Chamber
of Commerce have ceased their labors, in a
measure, the Women's Belief Committee
are harder at work than ever. Early yes
terday morning they were at their'posts in
the Second Presbyterian Church working
away like beavers. Each had some par
ticular work to do, and each did it well.
For some time the lecture room of the
church, looked like a mommoth bee hive.
Everything was bustle and confusion, yet
no one was confused. r-
The women were moving their head
quarters from the church to the rooms of
the Pittsburg Female College on Eighth
street. Myriads of cases were being packed
with food and clothing preparatory to
moving them, and the work was by no
means an insignificant one. But the women
labored industriously, and ere the bell in
the City Hall tower tolled 10, they were
already at work in their new quarters, as
ready to receive sufferers as they were be
fore the idea of moving from the church had
been thought of.
The refugees came in as usual, and were
regularly cared for, as though nothing had
happened, and at noon dinner was served
to a number of the sufferers without the
slightest hitch occurring anywhere.
The new quarters are far more pleasant
than the old, and the ladies are unanimous
in sounding the praises of Dr. Norcrqss for
the kindness extended them in throwing
open the college rooms for the benefit of the
Among the refugees cared for yesterday
were Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Paulson and three
children, going to Boston, Pa.; George

of the happiest women in the city ot Pitts
burg. For two weeks it has been her hari
lot to turn away dozens of people with the
information that the loved ones they sought
were among the lost. Yesterday, however,
this was changed. Late in the' afternoon .
two gentlemen named Weiss, one of whom
has traveled all the way from the Pacific
Coast, called at her table and inquired for
two families, one named Weiss and the
other Devine. Mrs. Easton was overjoyed
to be able to tell them that both families
had been saved, all alive and well, and in
this city. She was also enabled to tell th&
two men where their friends could be Found.
The ladiestf the clothing department re
ceived a letter from D. Lauder, Secretary of
the Belief Committee at Biddlesburg, Pa.,
thanking them for their donation of cloth
ing and complimenting them on the manner
in which tho clothes vere assorted and
marked, designating what 'each bundle con
tained. ' THE LITTLE UNKNOWN.
Mrs. George A. Kelly, of the Executive
Committee, yesterday received a letter from
Emma J. Ham, of Beaver, inclosing a pho
tograph of a girl baby of apparently 4 or 5
years of age. The photograph was entitled
"The Little Unknown," and told of the
body being found in the Ohio river at
Vanport, 125 miles from Johnstown, on
June 1 at 6 o'clock, 25 hours after the burst
iug of the dam. The following is the de
scription of the child as given in the letter:
The child was between 3 and 5 years old,
and had several marks on the body, which
showed it had recently suffered from chicken-pox.
It also had a small, deep burn on
The photograph is an excellent one, and
the parents could easily recognize it.
AT THE EXPOSITION.
The ladies who are at work sorting out
and providing the men sufferers with cloth
ing, are doing a very good work; and too
much cannot be said in their praise.
Dozens of men have been sent to them, and
have been supplied with complete and sub
It is purely a matter of conjecture when the
work of cither of the branches of the
Women's Committee will be completed.
As long as the sufferers continue to come
here they will be received, cared 'for, and
provided with homes, until they are able to
support themselves. It looks as though the
women were in for a long siege of hard
AT THE DEPOTS. ,
Few Passengers From Johnstown Regular
Trains Commence Running.
But comparatively few passengers arrived
in Pittsburg on the train from Johnstown
last night, and the majority of those aboard
seemed to be Pittsburgers, who were return
ing to spend Sunday at home. Among the
passengers was Colonel Hill, the Quarter
master General at Johnstown. The Colonel
said that he came to town simply on a mat
ter of business, but that it had nothing to
do with procuring additional rations for the
militia or laborers. Further than this he
had nothing to say. Contractor Kirk, who
is blowing up the debris at the bridge, was
also a passenger on the same train. He
simply comes m to spend Sunday with his
family, and will return to his work early
Early yesterday forenoon a notice was
posted at the depot calling for 200 men to go
to Johnstown at 51 50 per day. The notice
was only up a short while, and the 200
men were sent to- Johnstown on the 12:35
The Pennsylvania Bailroad has been re
built through the late flooded district under
the direct supervision of the officers in
charge of the engineering and transporta
tion departments of the Pennsylvania lines.
The new track has been substantially built,
and it will be gradually tested until Mon
day, when the line will be re-opened, and
express trains will again run through in
both directions between Chicago, St, Louis,
Cincinnati and Cleveland on the west, and
Baltimore, Washington, Philadelphia and
New York on the east.
The Pennsylvania Bailroad has opened
up through travel to Johnstown, and .the
opening will be formally signalized by the
company this evening, who will run out
their first train to the ruined city. The
train will be an exclusively special one,
containing several representatives of the
press of this city. The train will leave at
8:35 this 'morning, and will run to Johns
town and South Fork. Arriving it the

A SUBURBAN FLOOD,
Girty's Ran Rises Rapidly and a Railroad
is Washed Oat.
Millvale, on the West Penn road, was
afraid of a flood for a short time last even
ing after the copious rainfall began to make
itself known in Girty's run, which has its
course through the town. The rain was
particularly severe around Evergroe'n, and
about C o'clock the water in the creek rose
ten feet in about half au hour, causing
some of tho culverts under the streets to
become flooded to the top.
A flood in Girty's run without taking
out several bridges on the Evergreen branch
of the Pittsburg and Western would not be
a flood. The only train on the road was at
the Millvale end of the road when the
waters rose, and when it attempted to go to
Evergreen it was found that the bridge at
Walker's station was gone, while it is sup
posed that several others up the valley
shared the same fate. When the road will
again be operated is not known.
A JOHNSTOWN EXCUESI0N.
Tho Baltimore nnd Ohio Will Tako Ono
There on Tuesday.
The public clamor for a trip to Johnstown
is about to be complied with, and Division
Passenger Agent Smith, of the Baltimore
and Ohio, is the gentleman who will do it.
Mr. Smith announces that on Tuesday next,
at 7 A.M., a train will leave over the Balti
more and Ohio fcr Johnstown, arriving
there at 12:30 P. M. Eeturning from Johns
town, the train will leave at 5 p. m., making
the return trip in about the same time. This
will be the first opportunity to get into the
devastated city, and the rate has been made
low, being but $2 35. As there is but little
provision at Johnstown, except for the
workers and residents, persons should carry
with them something to eat.
An Excursion Wiped Onr.
Just a week before the Johnstown flood
Passenger Agent Smith, of the B. & O.,
had made arrangements with the Y. M. C.
A., ot Johnstown, to take 1,000 people to
Ohio Pyle on Thursday next. Mr. Smith
saw some of the association at Johnstown
the other day, and was told that nearly all
of the thousand are now in their graves.
STILL FLOATING ABOUT.
Little Matters of Interest Concerning the
Flood In the Conemnngb.
Ed. A. Owen, of East Saginaw, Mich., tele
graphs that he can guarantee SO carloads of
lumber for use at Johnstown.
The Union Coilee Company of New York,
sent 500 pounds of Manola coffee for the Johns
town sufferers, which has been forwarded by
the committee to Johnstown.
John A. Cbawford, of Here's Island, will
give a carload of lumber also. He advocates
the idea of a practical bnildcr compiling a
schedule of the lengths and other dimensions
of the lumber needed.
The Belief Fund of the G. A. R. for the ben
efit of the Conemangh Valley sufferers was'
swelled yesterday by S100 from Curjuesno Post,
259, and S3 from Mrs. P. Walter, of Brooklyn,
N. Y. The total cash received to date is 51,
896 21. Considerable more is expected from,
suburban posts next week.
A few days since a lady went into Rosen
baum's store and informed one of the firm that
she wished to purchase children's hats, as the
Ladies' Beliot Society did not havo any. He
refused to selUbut insisted on donating a dozen i
hats, together with a large quantity of trim
mings for ladies' bonnets, all of which were
duly appreciated by the society, as well as by
many of the Johnstown sufferers.
Beginning this morning the Eastern mail
from this city will go out over the Pennsylva
nia Railroad the same as before the flood, after
a discontinuance of 16 days, it is expected,
however, that the mail from the -East will be
from two to four hours late for some time,
owing to the condition of the tracks' in the vi-'
cinity of Johnstown, and nntil they are in good,
condition for fast travel again. (
All Soho Trembles, Fearing Its Pent
Up Waters May Escape.
AN AKNOYING DRAINAGE PROBLEM
Charges That Carelessness Caused the
Clogging Up of a Big Sewer.
OFFICIALS MAKE USE OF DTN4HITE
Soho trembles 1 Por far above Soho is
3,000,000 gallons of muddy water full of
death and destruction if it can only get
loose, and that seems to be the great ques
tion in the Sohoian mind. Can it get loose,
and if so, how much? Therefore, Soho
trembles. The Bed pond is swollen to the
greatest height within remembrance, and
water is still flowing in from sundry gutters,
and despite vigorous efforts no water per
colates through the sewer outlet once made
and established by tho powers that be.
Here is a dam. Ho mighty and puissant
engineer built it as an imperishable record
ot his greatness. Humble citizens, with
still humbler dump carts, caused it to grow
to its present proportions away back in the
year 1872. No. cunning contractor rip
rapped the dam with huge flat stones. But
garbage men studded its outer surface with
unassuming tomato cans. No army of
workmen kept their lanterns twinkling like
glow-worms as the dam grew In heightb.
The unpretentious scavenger emptied

A BECEPTACLE FOE TRASH
removed from the alleys of a great
city. There' was no puddling of clay to
hold the mass of earth together, but hoop
skirts of a bygone generation, and scrap tin
and flotsam and jetsam went to fill the
yawning chasm. There was no rubble it
was all rubbish. And on the top of this
highly miscellaneous formation Soho street
ran its erratic course, losing itself in the
older thoroughfare, Center street.
There certainly is much uneasiness as to
the possibility of Soho being wiped into the
Monongahela river by the water now col
lected in the Bed pond. With the purpose
in view of securing an accurate idea of the
situation, a Dispatch representative clam
bered up Soho street from Filth avenue yes
terday afternoon, and walked up that pre
cipitous and badly washed-out thorough
fare, and reached the Bed pond just as a
brisk shower had ceased. To judge from
the number of high city officials on the spot,
there was something serious going on. Chief
Geo. H. Brown, of the Water Department;
Commissioner of Highways Andrews; Sam
uel Paisley, in charge of the district, and
Engineer Brennan, of the Brilliant station,
were all on deck, and discussing means for
relief energetically. The Bed pond was
quite a sizable sheet of water. At least 600
feet long and varying in width from 150 feet
to 40, with a depth of from 10 to 15 feet, it
was certainly of ominous size unless held in
check by a very strong dam.
THE DAM IS BIG ENOUGH.
The city had been at work on the Bed pond
upward of five weeks, and had at one time
had it entirely cleared of water, bnt the
sewer outlet became again clogged, and the
water, resulting from'Friday's and yester
day's rains, rose rapidly, the Surface of the
pond being higher at 7 o'clock last evening
than was ever before known. The topog
raphy of the scene is interesting. The yawn
ing gap between Beed street and Center
street is bridged by the embankment which
constitutes Soho street. The earth wall is
immense, fully 700 feet wide on top, 300 feet
wide at the bottom of the ravine and nearly
100 feet high, the dam, com-
Eosed as it is of the most
eferogeneous materials and constructed
since 1872,seems strong -enough to withstand
almost any force. The two streets, Beed
and Center, run together, their junction
forming the eastern end of the pond. Fur
ther out Center street runs through a valley,
and the watershed is natural and of consid
erable extent. In the middle of the pond is
a rink belonging to Bobert Arthur, Presi
dent of thePiith National Bank. There
was two feet of water on the floor of the
rink at 7 o'clock last evening, and
fears were entertained that the rink would
float off. The water in the pond was only
11 feet below the Center avenue street-car
lines, and still rising, as water was pouring
into the poud from innumerable gutters. It
seems that a well 5 feet square and 42 feet
deep led from the bottom of the pond to the
sewer, 400 feet long, which passes under
Soho street, and drains the pond. This
well caved in entirely on Friday, thus
clogging the sewer.
CHARGES OF CARELESSNESS.
"I am astonished at the inefficiency of the
city officials," said a very respectable citi
zen who formed the center of a group of
residents. "The pond was pretty full sev
eral weeks ago, and the firm of Thomas
Carlin & Co., of Allegheny, brought over
two engines and pumped the water ont,
their tubing being put through the embank
ment in a trench 15 feet deep. The well or
drop was exposed and an outlet actually
open, and the men in charge of the work
did not have gumption enough to re
tain the advantage they had gained.
A coffer dam could have been
built to protect the drop from a rise of water,
and a pipe line should have been built to
carry away the big drainage that came into
the pond from the junction of Beed and
Center streets. As near as I can see, the
original intention was to fill in the pond
and build up the stone drop so as to control
the fill. A rain under pay from the city
was stationed at the drop, and everybody
was allowed to dump there. But by his in
efficiency the fill was so badly handled as to
press the stone drop out from the bank and
cause its collapse. The big bill paid by the
city for the draining of the water has all
been thrown away, as matters: are really
much worbe than before."
"WHAT THE OFFICIALS SAY.
Commissioner Andrews was hard at work,
arrayed in seven-le&guegumbootsand rough
clothes. When told what the criticisms
upon the work seemed tobe, hesaid: "When
we had the pond pumped dry about ten
days since we endeavored to mend the
broken drop, and wecould have kept the
outlet open as it was if it had not been that
the bottom of the pond is composed of 15
feet of slimy mud, which slowly pressed
down into the drop and blocked it despite
our best efforts. We put two men in the
mouth of the drop to clean it out. but they
got stuck in the mud and we had to throw
them a rope and work with a dozen men to
rescue them for several hours. It was really
a narrow escape for their lives. I think the
mud must be of a quicksand consistency.
Danger? No, not the least, and even if
there was twice as much water there would
he no danger."
Engineer .Brennan, of the Brilliant
Waterworks, said: "I estimate that there
are about 3,000,000 gallons of water here,
and I believe that this embankment would
safely withstand three times that amount
of p'ressure. The bank is of immense ex
tent and not easily disintegrated, and I am
positive there is no danger at all."
1 Chief Brown, of the Water Department,
said, in answer to questions as to danger:
"There is not a shadow of danger, for the
reason that before the water rises any higher
we shall have the pumps' at work. I have
sent to Manchester for an 80-horse power
boiler, and will have two centrifugal pumps
at work to-morrow morning, which will get
the water out in a day or two. Beside that,
I have ordered the Philadelphia Gas Com
pany to construct a 12-inch pipe line from
the junction ot Beed and Center .streets, and
also a line from Center and Soho streets,
which will prevent any more drainage from
entering the pond. We will have a big
force at work to-morrow, and shall not trifle
with the matter."
DYNAMITE EMPLOYED ON THE SEWEB.
Efforts were being 'made to" clear out the
sewer with charges of dynamite yesterday
afternoon. A small charge was fired at the
lower end of the sewer under Soho street,
but without effect. Chief Brown then gave
orders to fire a big charge at the sewer drop
in the pond. A raft was towed over to the
exact locality and a curious crowd watched
the proceedings with open-mouthed wonder.
A black man with one eye emerged from a
shanty carrying an abbreviated cone made
of pewter in his nrms. He moved with a
gingerly tread and hugged the cone as if
it were a pickaninny. The crowd scattered
when they saw him coming. He was carry
ing 30 pounds of dynamite, and if he had
stumbled someone would have got hurt.
There were two wires rnnning into the cone,
and when the colored man reached the raft
he twisted some insulated wire ends on the
short pieces running into the cone, and with
two pieces of short string he lowered the
murderous looking missile into the muddy
water. Carefully he paid it ont inch by
inch until the bottom was reached. Then
he made his way to the shore, clearing the
wires of obstructions and carried the ends
to Mr. E. B. Maccabee, who has the dyna
miting in charge. The raft was pulled
away and the crowd warned away. The
ends of the wire were attached to the poles
of a small upright battery. "Book out!"
bawled Mr. Maccabee, as he caught hold of
a handle and gave a sharp pull. There was
a snap and crackle of the electric spark
and a mighty reverberation. About ten
feet of the Dank at the water rose up vio
lently and tell crumbling into the water,
while a mass of water 20 feet across was sent
up into the air 10 or 12 feet. A pall of
smoke came from the disturbed surface, and
bubbles continued to rise for several min
utes. "That -discharge cost the city $25.
If it hasn't worked we'll fire a CO-pound
charge on Mondav," remarked Mr. Mac
cabee, as he started home. Work was done
for the evening.
COOKING SCHOOL GRADUATES,
An Entertainment Oat of tho Bat at tho
Grant School Yesterday Afternoon.
The closing exercises of the Pittsburg
school kitchen at the Grant School yester
day afternoon, were, perhaps, the most inter
esting of the series. The class was a large
one, numbering 56 pupils, making the total
number of graduates 400.
The number and variety of dishes ex
hibited, together with their average excel
lence were really surprising. The girls
seem equally at home in baking bread, mak
ing custards, jellies, soups, broiling steaks,
etc. Nearly all the graduates were dressed
in white, with tiny lace caps and aprons,
and presented a charming picture as they
stood over the little stoves and prepared the
different dishes with the ease and confidence
of old housewives.
One of the most praiseworthy features was
the total absence of jealousy, the girls seem
ing to take pride in showing and praising
each other's exhibits. Prizes were offered
for excellence in bread alone.
The judges were Misses Coleman and
Martin, of the Franklin school, and Miss
McCord, of the South school, who, after a
thorough examination, made somewhat diffi
cult owing to the superior quality of most
specimens offered, decided as follows: First
prize, a half dozen silver fruit knives
and nut-pickers combined to No. 37,
entered by Miss Eleanor Baldwin,
of the Bellefield school. Second
prize, two silver fruit knives and nut pick
ers, to Miss Jennie Moorhead", also of the
Bellefield school, and third prize, one silver
fruit knife and nut picker, to Miss Edna
Seip, of the Howard school. Favorable
mention was also made of the exhibits of
Miss Mamie Glenn, ot the Howard school,
and Miss Clara Ong.of the Bellefield school.
Superintendent Luckey announced that
owing to unforeseen circumstances Mr.
W. D. Moore could not be present and de
liver the closing address, as intended, and
on that account the exercises would be some
what shortened, though he hoped they had
proved none the less interesting. The
classes were then called to order and
Mr. William Brown awarded the diplomas
to the following fortunate young ladies :
Olive Butler, Jennie Barr, Jennie Gogely,
Olive Gould, Mamie Glenn, Jlarv Lefiler. Laura

The class was under the superintendence
of Miss Torrey, who is justly proud of her
brilliant host ot pupils. She is a little bit
of a woman, scarcely more than a girl her
self, and considerably smaller than some of
the graduates, with brown hair and eyes,
dressed in a black suit and a dainty white
cap and apron. Toward her pupils she is
more like an associate than a teacher, yet
her slightest request is obeyed with admir
able promptness. She is a great favorite,
and believes in ruling by love rather than

The Suspension of Phillips Condemned by
the Trades Council. -
THEY CLAIM IT IS PEESECTJTI0S
A largely-attended meeting of the Trades
Assembly was held last evening with Joseph
L. Evans in the chair.
Inasmuch as L. A. No. 300 has refused to
take any cognizance of the Trades Councils'
investigation in regard to the importation
of foreign glass workers, it was resolved to
take the matter into the court.
Up to date the Central Trades Council
has collected 871 55 toward the Johns
town fundr Several more organizations are
to be heard from that will largely increase
the sum. A discussion arose as to the
recognition of the musical organizations.
It was finally decided that the Mutual
Musical Protective Union is to be the only
recognized body of union men.
The following resolutions were adopted:
Whereas, The miners of Western Pennsyl
vaniaTiave inaugurated a systematic move
ment to abolish company or "pluck-me" stores;
Eesolved, That this Council, representing
the principal trades of Allegheny county, ex
tend our Internal well wishes, and urc0 noon
merchants and business people generally to co
operate with organized labor to root out the
"pluck-me" cviffrom this commnnj:-
Besolved, That any assfstanca PiTin i,. the

efforts to better their condition, will bo ap
proved by the Central lrades council.
Whereas. John Phillips, an honored citizen
? . u1PIted States, who had taken an obliga
tion to obey an iaws of this country and help
maintain them faithfully, has been suspended
from membership in Local Assombly SOO, K. of
L., and deprived of earning his living for three
months on the gronnd that be appeared before
the investigating committee of tne Central
Trades Council in answer to a summons sent to
him by that body.
Whereas, L. A. SOO on May 21 had agreed to
an open investigation on the terms proposed bv
Secretary Coke to the Central Trades Council
in his letter of Alay 2.-1SS9.
Whereas, L. A. 300, by thus agreeing to a
joint investigation, must, if it acted In good
faith, have first rescinded any resolutions or
motions prohibiting any members to testify;
Whereas, John Phillips was tried, and on
Saturday evening. May 29, 1889, which time, if
L. A SOO had acted in good faith, no resolu
tion or motion was in force prohibiting mem
bers to testify, and hence no conviction could
have been secured, when the motion was re
pealed by subsequent action: therefore, bo it
Besolved. That this Trades Council cannot
hut feel that the suspension of John Phillips
will send the blush of shame to the cheek of
every honest union man because of the stigma
and disgrace it casts upon the fair name of
Besolved, That our unmeasured contempt be
expressed for the men responsible for vindic
tive persecution as it is not the principle ad
vocated by organized labor.
Besolved, That tho caso of L. A. 300. K. of U,
in relation to importation of foreign labor, has
been one of misrepresentation, of unexampled
bluff, and of vindictive, malicious persecution
of a witness, and abnse of official influence
from which L. A. SOO, K. of L.. can only bo ab
solved in the eyes of organized labor when it
resolves to send back its imported labor, as
there are plenty of American workmen to
take their places.

Beware of Over-Canfldeace.
The opponents of the prohibitory amend
meat should indulge in no illusions in re
gard to the character of this campaign.
Undue confidence is sometimes as fatal to a
canse as indifference and apathy. It is a
great mistake to suppose, because of the
absence ofnoi.se and excitement in the con
test, that the Prohibitionists are not busily
at work. They are making a canvass from
door to door. There is scarcely a house in
the Commonwealth that has not received a
liberal supply of prohibitionist documents.
It is true that most of this campaign litera
ture is sadly defective in argument; that it
appeals to the emotions rather than to the
sober jndgment of voters; that it grossly
misrepresents the situation in Maine, Iowa
and Kansas, and that its conclusions from
statistics of crime and vice are utterly ab
surd but it will not do to unflerrate this
method of controversy. Adroit appeals to
sentiment and imposing arrays of doctored
social statistics have often proved more
effective in winning votes than the soundest
arguments addressed to the reason.
A strong reliance of the advocates of pro
hibition is in a light vote on June 18. In
stead of permitting the question to be de
cided at the general election by a full vote
of the people, they easily persuaded the
Legislature to fix a special election day in
the season of the year when the farmer will
be busy with hay-making. While they ex
pect to bring the last supporter of prohibi
tion to the polls by appeals to the spirit of
fanaticism, they anticipate a small vote of
its opponents in the agricultural portions of
the State. This expectation is cherished
especially in regard to the steady and sobez
farmers of Lancaster, Berks, Northampton,
Lebanon and other counties in which the
"Pennsylvania Dutch" element predomi
nates. Forewarned is forearmed. If the oppo
nents of prohibition shall come out in their
strength on the 18th of Jnne this question
will be so completely settled that it will not
be agitated again in Pennsylvania within
the present generation. In order to save a
half day in hay harvest the farmers of the
State should not neglect the duty of voting
against a measure that is as unnecessary as
it would be fntile. As the memorial ot the
members of the bar of Philadelphia has
shown, the Legislature now possesses all the
power to prohibit the manufacture and sale
of liquor which this amendment could con
vey. But while statutory prohibition could
be readily repealed when seen to be imprac
ticable and disastrous, this amendment, if
adopted, would be fastened upon the people
ot Pennsylvania for years to come, and the
Legislature would be rendered powerless to
pass any law to regulate the liquor traffic
and restrain its abuses.
The Bill of Eights declares that "all men"
shall have the right of pursuing their own
happiness, and that "the people shall be se
cure in their persons, houses, papers ifnd pos
sessions from unreasonable searches and
seizures." This amendment would be in
flagrant inconsistency with these guarantees.
Prohibition never has been and never can be
enforced without violating inherent and in
defeasible rights of the people.
The issue involved in this contest is, there
fore, of such transcendant moment that no
citizen of Pennsylvania who values the fund
amental principles of personal liberty and
who would preserve the organic law of the
State from mutilation will be prevented by
business or pleasure from recording his vote
against the prohibitory amendment on the
18th of June.
