sxpenmentu yesterday afternoon, and made
the following report to the Department of
tv the Hon O. Brown, chief or the Depart

The hardness of the water calculated upon 100.-
000 parts Is temporarily nearly one degree; per
manently about half a degree less.
The softness of the water Is remarkable, and Is
doubtless due to the large rain masses which fell
during the last month. The large quantities or
total solids and organic matter in the Pittsburg
hvdrants are dcrrted from the pressure the city
water has to sustain. Comparing the present
condition of the water based on the analysis pre
viously made, it is rather better than before, ow
ing. 1 think, to the purifying effect of the rain.
The maximum lor health water is:

Thus we find our hj drant water only In regard
to organic matter balancing sver the limit.
Ihe presence or nitric acid ammonia and al
buminoid ammonia are evils to which every rlTcr
water In a civilized country Is liable.
The report will be presented to Chief Brown
to-day. It not being completed In time yester
day afternoon to hand to him.
Prof. Blanck disclaims the idea that be had
found a constantly increasing amount of am
monia in the water. His students made analy
ses every day, but he says it was only experi
mental work, in which he did not take much
A S0DTHS1DE SUICIDE.
Louis S. C Krneger Kills Himself With n
Revolver in Presence of His Son.
An insurance agent and a well known man
In the neighborhood named Louis S. C.
Krneger. sbS himself last night in his own
house, at JS12 Sarah street, Southside. The

with his wife for some time
He went home at six o'clock last night, and
called for his little boy to come downstairs.
Shortly after the child cried for his mother.
Ebe did not respond at once, as Krue
ger had been drinking heavily for some
time, and she thought be was drunk
again. A few minutes later Mrs. Krue
ger heard a pistol shot from below, and
rushed downstairs. As she passed the window
of bis bedroom she eawher busband lying on
his bed with his hands clasping a revolver, and
the blood flowing freely from a ghastly wound
in his throat

inqnest over the body.
Last Hallow'en tho Coroner had occasion to
perform the sain j duty over the body of the de
ceased brother-m-law. Louis Krueger, who had
shot him-.11 in the same house. Krneger
brooded or"" Ids rother-in-law's act for a long
time, and once 10'd Lieutenant Risen that he
was going to commit suicide. Krneger's de
spondency ova.- his brother's tragic death is
supposed to have led to his own rash act. He
was a member of several societies, and leaves a
widow and three children.
IHAT HERE'S ISLAND DAM.
Colonel W. E. Merrill Writes a Terr Sharp
Letter to Allegheny's Blnyor.
The proposed dam at Herr's island and the
objections to it raised by Allegheny Councils
have brought out a very sharp letter from
Colonel W. E. Merrill to Mayor Pearson. The
Colonel says the United States is desirous of
improving the Allegheny river by the erection
of a cam at Herr's island, which, when com
pleted, will be of great benefit to the city, par
ticularly in the water supply. It will also bo
beneficial in the transfer of freight by water
to the upper end of the city.
Colonel Merrill says they desire to bnild an
abntment on the Allegheny side and on Alle
gheny City property. If the city refuses to
grant the land necessary, it is likely that the
Government will give np the matter and no
dam will be built. He says that other commu
nities are clamoring for improvements, and if
Allegheny refuses to accept one when offered
It will set a very bad example.
THE EED P0XD.
very thine Necessary Being Done to Empty
the Annoying Reservoir
There was an unusual amount of water in
Bed Pond yesterday, owing to the destruction
of an old well located below the month of tho
sewer and the frequent rains. Superintendent
Paisley has a force of 60 men at work day and
night. A small dam has been constructed
about 200 feet above the junction of Center and
Reed streets to prevent any more water coming
from that direction, and a large trench. 20 feet
deep, is being dog through boho street. Two
steam pumps were put in operation at 10
o'clock last night and it is expected that the
entire contents will be pumped into the sewer
in from iS to 72 hours.
With the exception of the flooding of the old
skating rink, which was built below the street
level, no damage has been sustained.

ALLEN MDRDER TRIAL.
Several Witnesses Testily to Premeditation
In the Shooting;.
Charles E. Allen, colored, was placed on trial
in the Criminal Court yesterday for the murder
of Steven, alias "Bud" Lee, on the 21st day of
last Marcn, at 251 Second avenue. The entire
morning was occupied In empaneling a jury,
and it was afternoon when the case was finally
opened. District Attorney Porter and John S.
Robb appeared for the prosecution and Messrs.
Brennon and Mitchell for the defense. The
first witness examined was Walter Butler, who
testified that Allen and Lee had quarreled
about a woman and Allen had left the house
and dared Lee to follow him, which the latter
did. After a few hot words Allen drew a re
volver and shot Lee. He started to run, but
was captured by Officers Holmes, Pearsall and
Butler. Robert Holmes, a police officer, testi
fied that on the morning of the murder
while talking to Officer Pearsall he. heard two
men quarreling. Suddenly a shot was fired,
and one man started down the street. The offi
cer ran to the spot and found Lee lying on the
ground. They then gave pursuit to Allen,
whom they captured a short distance away.
Officer Pearsall corroborated this statement.
Dr. J. Guy McCandless testified to holding
the post mortem examination on Lee, and that
he died from ihe effect of the wound. Peter
McGuire and John Connors saw the shot fired
but did not recognize the man. George Wal
lace testified that Allen told him the day be
fore the shot was fired that he intended to kill
a negro that night. Mary Smith testified that
the same remark was made to her.
Detective Coulson testified that he svw Allen
at the Eleventh ward station, at which place
the defendant said: "By , when I shot him
he fell line a beef."
William Deemus testified that he met Allen
on Fifth avenue, where the latter said: "I am
going to kill a idggah to-night." That night
the witness heard a noise in front of his house.
Two men were quarreling, and shortly after a
shot was fired. The court here adjourned
until this morning.
HATE DOUBTS ABOUT IT.
But Little Confidence In tho Story Abont a
New Railroad East.
A revival of the South Penn Railroad
project, the report of which was sent in from
Philadelphia to The Dispatch yesterday, is
looked upon as a myth by many of the prom
inent railroad men and shippers in this city.
So much has been promised, and so much
has failed materialization regarding the pro
posed "only competing line" that the subject
when broached to people of prominence was
greeted with significant smiles which savored
very strongly of "chestnuts."
A few, however, thought that time would
see a formidable railway competitor connecting
Pittsburg and New York via Philadelphia, as
against the Pennsylvania route. H. Clay Frlck
said: "I don't give the story any credance
whatever. These new railroad stories don't
amount to much."
E. Holbrook, Superintendent of the Lake
Ene roads said: "Recently I looked over a
portion of the South Penn, and my idea is that
a fine road will be built upon the foundation
of the proposed route. It is one of the finest
roadbedsl ever saw. and I don't think it will go
to waste." In fact, there is no question bnt
that some road will be completed over the de
funct institution. It's tocgosd to go to waste.
H. P. Dilworth thought that it would be an
inestimable benefit to Pittsburg shippers
should it ever reach running shape.
DINNERS IN AID OF DESTITUTE.
The Ladies' Relief G. A. R. Committee Will
Rnise Money for Flood sufferers.
The Relief Committee of the ladies ot the G.
A. R. held a meeting at the old University

two dinners at their headquarters, to be given

their families who suffered by the late flood.
The committee yesterday sent ont a box of
clothing valued at $60 to Johnston n, and last
night decided to send $50 in cash to a soldier's
family at Huntingdon, who suffered by the
The County Commissioners have given the
ladies the use of the whole University building,
and they have set aside one room for a sewing
room, in which a committee opens and sorts all
donations of clothing sent in, and. when need
ed, repairs are made, buttons sewed on and
clothing fixed up in good condition for wearing.
RIOT ON A TRAIN.
Stono Jugs, Filled Wlib Whisky, Caused
Several Free Fights.
A small-sized riot occurred on an excursion
tram on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, at
Alien station, nine miles this' side of Wheeling.
The train was delayed f or ji early three hours on
account ot a weak bridge at Trladelphla. All
this time small fights were taking place, which
finally ended in a grand free slugging match. A
number of the fighters got out of the car and
continued the melee on the bank of the creek.
Two were thrown in, and barely escaped drown
ing. At least ten stone jugs of whisky were
aboard the train. It is alleged that the con
ductor and brakeman were intoxicated. No
person was seriously injured, and no arrests

FACTS FOB Y0TEES.
WHY THE AMENDMENT SHOULD BE
Tbe Liquor Trade Responsible lor Poverty
and Crime The Farmers Will Vote
for the Amendment.
The man who votes for tbe saloon votes for
all the evil tor which the saloon is responsi
ble. The liquor traffio is not only bad trade in
itself, but it makes everything else bad.
Millions of dollars in bad debts are upon
the books of the business men of our State,
because men pay cash for their drinks while
their wives rnn'bills that are never paid.
Eyebt argument nsed against the
amendment is a stronger argument against
A majt does not carry in his pocket the
personal liberty of his wife and children.
Society is bound to protect the whole family.
The amendment confiscates no man's
property, wrongs no man, takes nothing
away from any man except the future privi
lege of making money in a dishonorable
way. But it will prevent the ruin of thou
sands of men and the defrauding of thou
sands of families.
The motto of the friends of the amend
ment: "For God and home and native
land; for our religions institutions; for the
purity of the ballot-box; for our children;
for liberty and purity and independence."
The motto of the enemies of the amend
ment: "For our pocket-books."
What would you think of a Judge on
the bench who would say, "I will take no
part in this case?" Every voter is a judge
on the bench. You must say by your vote
whether the saloon shall close or your own
If the $35,000,000 spent annually in our
State for intoxicating liquors, were spent
for useful articles instead, employment
would be given to 35,669 persons. One of
the Allegheny breweries has $1,000,000 in
vested and employs 45 ment A coal mine
near by has a capital of $60,000 and employs
350 men. Speaking of prohibition Abraham
Lincoln said: "By it no orphans starving,
no widows weeping, by it none wounded in
feeling, none injured in interest, even the
dram-maker and dram-seller will have
glided into other occupations so gradually
as never to have felt the change and will
stand ready to join all others in the univer
sal song of gladness."
A wooden structure in the heart of the
city may work injury to life and property.
Hence we prohibit it"by law. The saloon
does work injury always and in every
place. Shall we not prohibit it by law?
Meecee, Lawrence and Beaver counties
are splendidly organized and give assurance
of immense majorities for the amendment.
The farmers will vote for the amend
ment, because it will turn the money which
now goes to the saloon, to the purchase of
Fathebs! give a vote to-day foryour
More than 60 per cent of the Knights of
Labor will vote for the amendment; 75 per
cent ot our mechanics and half of our labor
ers will vote lor the amendment.
A steaw vote in one of our prominent
business houses gave nine-tenths of its em
ployes for the amendment.
We have 18,000 drunkards in the State of
Pennsylvania. Thi saloon made them.
Nine thousand broken hearts in these 18,000
homes. The saloon broke these hearts.
Vote the saloon down.
WoBKnroMEir, let us by our votes to
day say, "The saloon must go, and our
wives and children must stay and be happy
High license leaves the trap still in the
way of onr boys. Prohibition clears the
track and gives them a fair chance.
Look here! A father and seven sons, all
voters and all for the amendment. One
whole street in Allegheny with but two
votes against it The tide is rising.
The saloon is master of politics in our
cities. Few respectable men can reach
positions in the cities without patronizing
the saloon. Vote the tyrant out.
Good men who cannot see their way to
vote for the amendment will not vote for the
Business men who have been in fear of
being boycotted by the saloon, are beginning
to fear that good citizens will give their
patronage to men who stand up for the right.
Save $380,000 taxes annually in Alle
gheny county, by voting out the saloon.
Touno men, vote as your mothers pray.
The last week has opened the eyes of
thousands of our citizens to the real ques
tion at issue, viz: "against the saloon or for
the saloon," and they are going against it
to a man.
Think of it, citizens! Ihe amendment
carried means 15,000 boys in our State saved
to a noble manhood.
In more than 40 counties in onr State pro
hibitionJias been tried, and does prohibit,
and it is a glorious success.
