ties A Choice
The leaders of the prohibitory amendment
movement in Allegheny City whilst admitting
' decided defeat are jet not cast down in
despair. There are certain well defined
rumors in the air concerning the organization
of something very akin to a third party as
another factor in local politics. It does not jet
seem to be decided on what special lines this
revival of an old idea will he formed, and con
siderable difference of opinion exists as to
whether this new force will be merely an or
ganization to coaiesce with one or other of the
old parties for the furtherance of prohibitory
views, or whether it will be resolved into a
distinct and definitely united prohibitory party.
Its inception, it is said, will occur to-night at;a
mass meeting to "be held at the Union Kink and
some very interesting disclosures are expected
to be made.
The Kev. John Fulton. D. D., Rev. Mr. Mc
Crory and other Prohibitionists ,were at the
North avenue headquarters yesterday evening
discussing the outlook when a Dispatch re
porter entered. Dr. Fulton said:
I was unaware of the result or the election until
I came down this morning, and, of course, 1 was
very much disappointed. Our opponents1 organi
zation was Tery powerful, hat we, on our side, did
everything In our power to brine out voters. It
was easv to pet votes In the cities, but I did not
think they would scoop them all up. I attribute
our defeat, primarily, to the combination of the
Influences of the two old parties being brousht to
bear against us, and secondly, to the fact that
the sentiment In favor of prohibition had
not had time to crystallUe under the party condi
tions alonp whose line6eere obliged to work.
The people haie made their choice: they want
saloons, they must have them, and It can't be

Kevi David McAllister in speaking of the
prohibition defeat said "I was not surprised.

FATHER SHEEDY TOE HIGH LICni.SE.
Eev. Morgan M. Sheedr, ho is Vice Presi
dent of the National Catholic Total Abstinence
Society, said jesterday:
The sentiment of our union certainly favors
nigh license, rigidly enforced. W'c cannot accept
what I would call the pollcv of despair which
underlies prohibition Moral suasion Is our
strongest card, and we believe In education of
the young to believe Intemperance a sin. "We cut
the Gordlan knot hv advocating total abstinence.
We cannot understand the prohibition idea
.llmt a man need not be a total abstainer
I' Fto work or vote for prohibition. 2t s ems
strange for men addicted to drinking
to be conducting forcible appeals and crying.
'Kill whlskv, or whlski will kill you."
Another peculiarity of the campaign was the
number of vIots" made use of by the dni
They also indulged In severe aud uncalled lor
('enunciations ot other people, and no one will
doubt that this method of work hurt them sevcre
lv with people standing between the two ex
tremes. I cannot help remembering l'lus lX.'s
advice to some would-be reformer, that the best
av to reform was each one to begin with him
self. In other words, personal prohibition !s the
best plan. As Archbishop ltvan said In his let
ter, until a majoritv of the people of the Mate or
nation become victims of intemperance prohibi
tion Is out of the question.
CHAIRMAX 1VKEKS CRIES rKAUD.
Chairman J. D. Weeks, of the Amendment
Committee, talks as though he thought there
was some crookedness to account for the result
in some localities. lie thinks the result will
harm the Republican party. He says that in
one district in Allegheny City every amend
ment ndvnratp was rhallpnrprt and his vote re-
F jected on the slightest pretense.
v) 3. C. Christy doesn't think this is the end of
it. and that but one question remains, ana that
istWbatwill be the next move?
Senator Dobson thinKs more money expended
might bare altered the result, or at least
softened it. He says the temperance people
will again pick their flints, and that the Repub
lican party will be forced to again present the
question to the people live years from now.
W. D. Moore's opinion is that the vote will so
embitter amendment Democrats that they will
never vote their straight ticket again, and that
Republicans will refuse to coalesce hereafter
with the Democratic organization, and that the
result will be that the tliiru party will
bold the balance of power, and in the
end there will be a conflict of nationalitl.-v.
John S. Robb doesn't think the amendment
will hurt the Republican party. He thinks
the contest was not political and thinks that
owing to the heterogeneity of the population
of Pennsly vanit prohibition wonld not prohibit
and that the only way to regulate the boo'e
question is to have an exceedingly high license
law and make licensees dance to its music
UNUSED TO POLITICAL 'WAKrAKE.
'Rev. T. J. Leak, D. I)., or Allcgheny-The re
sult has been hardly otherwise than I expected.
It mnst be remembered that this is a movement of
the people headed by their ministers and others
unused to political wartarc, and that we hae
had no politicians to talc hold of the movement
as In Iowa, or as benstor Hoar did In Massa
chusetts. It was a comparatively easy thing to
carrv prohibition in Iowa and Kansas, because
thev have no large cities like Philadelphia
and Pittsburg, with their wealthy liquor In
terests to contend against. Allien we reflect
that It Is only SI vears ago that men
Ik pan to give up drinking. It tells well Tor the
future of prohibition m tli btate that on Its first
Introduction, here, and without, any organization
to speak about, such pooa results should hive been
forthcoming. lamnotsuOLieiitofapolltleitn to
TfmnrL on the nolltieal view of tlic result, but It
Is clear to mv mind that the supporters of prohib
ition must organize a not a part but a com
pany, prepired to act, when the time comes, in
sucport of their views with one or other tif the old
parties. The Prohibitory League which was
starud tome tjme ago in riilUdelphla had not
time to take a grip previous to the election, but a
strong iffort will now bs made to give
It Impetus. Jt would not seem to be
politic to round a party on distinct lines
out of this league, but to organize it and marshal
our torces as to make it worth while for politicians
to listen to us, Any movement of this election
might have been construed as a menace to the
Republican party and there are many Republi
cans, who like Inyseir. while ardently advocating
u measure or pro iIbltiou;are not disposed to sever
li Tien with thenartv on that account. Such an
organization wilt undoubtedly bctbe outcome of
the election and It will eventually carry us on to
prohibition. '.Meanwhile I strongly favor local
option and this I regard as the thin edge of the
1 wedge that will finally split np all opposition.

Rev. FredV-Ruoff, pastor of the Evangelical
' Protestant Church, on Smitbfiela street and
Sixth avenue, was in a. good humor atbis home,
,' IS Bluff street, last night Said he:
. I never supposed the prohibitory amendment
would carry In Pennsylvania: but I was a little

would It be possible to do otherwise? I dou't

On being told that it was claimed that saloon
keepers, thugs, thieves and all disreputable
jnen were thoe who voted against the prohibi
tory amendment, Mr. Bnoff said he was very
sorry to know that the majority of the people
In Pennsylvania were so lawless. "I wouldn't

said. "I wonld never forgive myself If I went

marvelously surprising in this. Politicians of

Is an offshoot of this; bnt, from indications, it
will be more far-reaching than the parent tree.
We, the undersigned voters of Pennsylvania,

penalties. Ihlrd fheenlorcementorall laws to
restrict and Anally prohibit the liquor traffic.
Fourth No step backward. We will persevere in
this effort until from Pennsylvania, as rrom
Maine. Kansas and Iowa, the saloon shall disap
pear. We declare: First That we owe primary alle
giance to bod and humanltv, to our country and
Commonwealth, and will hold all party affiliations
subordlnatq to these higher claims. becond-Tliat,
retaining our personal libcrt) to chooe our polit

claim that we are, and will forever be. free from
the dominion of the liquor power, and demand
that all political connection between tho saloon
and the State, through whatever political party,
shall be forever totally dissolved.
We invite our fcllow-citlzens of all parties and
creeds to untie with ns In this declaration, and for
the end sought, and to form such organizations ln
their respective counties, cities, wards, townships

Rev. Mr. Baker as pastor of the old
Fortieth Street Church in 1S64- His pastorate
expired the same year that the foundation of
the new church was laid. Ho told some pleas
ing reminiscences of the early history of the
Butler Street Church. Among other things he
said; "I remember well, when tua 1C0 members
of the Fortieth Street Church first talked of
buying the four lots at the corner of Fortieth
and Bntler streets, on which to build a Church."
He then told how these 100 mem
bers raised two subscriptions to buy
the lots, for which SL700 was paid. Atter the
lots were purchased the ladies of the church
held a fair and made enouzb money to increase
the whole amonnt to $20,000 With this money
the church was built. He further said at that
time It was a big undertaking and the members
made many sacrifices to carry their object to a

James Miller as the first pastor of the new

Mr. John Matthews told several reminscences
of the early history of the church, as did also
D. J..W. Covert. The latter read a list of names
of the first male members of the church. This

The church has gradually increased in mem
bership since it was established, until it now
has one of the largest congregations in the
The building was lately improved by an addi
tion built to it. In the last month workmen
have been constantly engaged remodeling the
church. New seats in the amphitheater style
were placed in the auditorium. The walls and
ceiling of the church proper were frescoed in
tasteful colors and designs, as were also the
walls of the two church parlors.
The new seats which were placed in the
building are of oak bodies and cherry ends,
both in their natural colors.

"That is a conclnsion that is new to me. I
thought the Law and Order Society was lost

test." So said Mr. William Yost, the attorney for
the society, yesterday. He had been informed
by a reporter of the Dispatch that there was
much talk among tho anti-amendment people
that the result of Tuesday's election was a re
buke to the work of the Law and Order Socie
ty, and wonld also tend to changes in the
"The Law and Order Society took no part in
the amendment campaign at all," continued
Mr. Yost. "Vve hadn't anything to do with it
whatever, and I don't see that we should be
mixed np in it. Neither do I see why we
should be called upon to tell our plans. The
public will find them out soon enough."
At the office of the Clerk of Courts it was
learned that the Law and Order Society had
not returned oven one information during the
present term Qf Court. Alderman Carlisle, the
Law and Order magistrate, had sent in nothing
at all. Captain Dolglisb remarked. "It is al
ways that way. The Law and Order people
never rend in a case when Judge Stoweis on
the bench; they wait until Judge Ewlng or
Judge White is on."
Mr. Yost was told of this. "Tho Law and
Order Society is generally able to take care

The Corner Stone of tho Transformed
Belleficld Church Is Laid.
Over 200 interested spectators, mostly ladies,
were presentat the Bellefield Presbyterian
Church yesterday afternoon, to witness the
laying of the corner stone ot the new edifice.
The sun shone brightly from the clouds, and
quickly dispelled the gloom of the surround

old church, stating that the building occupied
at present was growing too smalt to accommo
date the rapidly increasing population of that
vicinity, and that he felt great pleasure in being
called upon to complete the foundation of a
The pastor gave a few figures, showing that
the cost of the new church would be 3,000,
and be 80x80 feet in size, seating over 800 peo
ple. A 100-foot tower, commanding a broad
view of Pittsburg, will be located at the south
west comer, and a memorial window, com
memorating the founders of Oakland, tho old
Third Church colony, and other early mem
bers ot the church, will be constructed. The
edifice, when completed, will be one of the
handsomest ln Bellefield.
Excellent music was rendered by a select
choir, and Rev. K. P. Cowan, of the Third
Church, and Elder J. H. Baldwin made inter

repaired to the outside, where tho corner stone
was laid with the usual ceremonies.
Among the contents of tho box are copies of
the dail papers, giving accounts of the Johns

Some Startling; Information Obtained by
the Authorities in Both Places.
PHOTOGRAPHERS EEAP A BIG HARVEST
Mrs. Dr. Easton, her daughter and Miss
Effie Long returned from Johnstown at 9 20
o'clock last night. Mrs. Easton, as Chairman
of the Bureau of Information in Pittsburg, had
gone to tho place to try to unravel some tangled
threads pertainingto her department1 oC the
Ladies' Relief Committee. '
There was no system of. communication be
tween Pittsburg and Johnstown la-the line of
information regarding the dead and tho living.
People recognized tho Ladles' Relief head
quarters in Pittsburg, as the glace wher,e Hiey
could come to get information about missing
relatives. Letters and telegrams sentrto Johns
town failed to bring satisfactory replies, or no
replies at all. It become evident thaf some
method should be established by which there
would be uniformity of action betweon the two
places, and Mrs. Easton was delegated to make
Mrs. Easton and the two yonng ladies went
to Johnstown on Tuesday mOrning. The sights
they witnessed were far beyond what they bad
Imagined, bnt they succeeded in making the
arrangements they desired for establishing a
communication between tho Pittsburg bureau
of information and that at Johnstown.
Hereafter there will be a daily exchange of
bulletins between the two bureaus, and the re
sult will be that often the Pittsburg bureau
can supply information that is lacking in
SHOWK ALL COURTESIES.
"I bad every facility afforded me," said Mrs.
Easton last night, "to got at the information I
wanted. General Wiley gave me Major Hous
ton to see that L could go every place I wanted
to go. I tramped over the tops of houses, and
even church steeples. I never had any idea of
how Johnstown was devastated until 1 went
"But tho best thing I did," she continued,
"was to make the arrangements I was after.
There must bo 'concert of action by the com
rrittees. Why, I found that I could give them
imformatlon that was surprising to them. For
instance, they bad on all their records that
Mrs. Huff was dead. I knew better. Her
daughter commenced calling upon us the first
day we were in operation. She was then a
stout, vigorous woman. Day after day she
called, and it made me very sad to see how she
fell away. She became as pale as a ghost,
and I believe she must have lost SO
pounds ln weight before we found out
the trntb. Mrs. Huff was identified as
one of the dead found at Morrellvllle, but
we found after many inquiries .that she was
alive, and she is now in a hospital in Pittsburg.
Mr. Rutlcdge and Mr. Harry Keller, who are
ln charge of the Bureau of Information at
Johnstown, both earnest and bard workers,
could scarcely believe me when I told them
that I knew Mrs. Huff was alive . because she
had been under my eharge for days. She is
very sick, bnt she will get well, I think."
HAS A BIO TASK TO PEBFOKM.
Mrs. Easton has a big task before her. The
Johnstown military authorities want her to
make a complete report of where every refugee
who reported to the Pittsburg headquarters
has gone. It will be pretty hard to find out
where all of them are now, as some of them
have gone as far West as Nebraska. However,
Mrs. Easton has a little book that contains a
complete record of all persons who passed
through ber hands.
During her visit Mrs. Easton obtained many
water-stained and sand-covered photographs
direct from houses in which undoubtedly dead

THE INSPECTOR'S FLOOD EELIC.
Mr. JSIcAleeso nnd Ills 'Little Dog-, of Terr
Inspector McAleese has a relic of the Johns
town disaster which lie prizes very highly,
being nothing more than a very small dog of
uncommon breed which was rescued from a
pile of debris at Kemville U days after the
flood. The Inspector was a member of the
guard of officers who accompanied Treasurer
W. It. Thompson to Johnstown with the money
to pay the laborers on Vi eduesdayof last week.
After the fiistdayat Johnstown the heaviest
part of their work was done, and the car con
taining the money being placed under a guard,
the officers and Messrs. Thompson, Oonrleyand
McVey took a walk around the flooded district
in the neighborhood of Kernyille.
While crossing a great mass of debris a
scratching sound was beard underneath,
iihicli the party decided was made
by a human being imprisoned under
the roof of a house , upon which
they were standing. The entire party secured
long beams and poles, and after an hour's hard
work succeeded in lifting the roof high enough
to admit of Captain Dick Brophy crawling
under to discover the cause of the scratching
sound they had heard.
By careful scrutiny Brophy, after some
time, discovered a little dog lying on Its side
over in a dark corner under the roof. He soon
got the dog out. but it seemed about ready to
die, and tho entiro party lent their efforts and
sympathies to bring ng bim around, which was
accomplished after an hour or two of scientific
The ownership of the dog was settled by
drawing lots, and now tbo Inspector values his
dog very highly. He says he is confident tho
dog was imprisoned in the debris for 11 days
with nothing at all to eat, and. regards his.re
covery as almost miraculous.

The English Syndicate That Wants to Buy
Up tbo Breweries.
There is a possibility that tbe English syndi
cate which ttried to purchase Pennsylvania
breweries some timo ago will now repeat tbe
effort. Then they were afraid to push the en
terprise until the fate of the Constitutional
amendment became apparent.
Two brewers in this city are still in possession
of offers madetbem by the agent of this syndi
cate for their plants. At the office of the
Liquor Dealers' Association, on Fourth ave
nue, yesterday, an official said that he expected
these offers to be renewed within the next two
weeks. But he also believed there woflld not
be much disposition to sell, because, witb the
Constitutional amendment defeated, an era of
six years' prosperity is opening up before the
brewers, and tbey will want to derive all the
benefit from it possible in the way of business.
He also intimated that tbey had put so much
money into tbo campaign that they would like
a chance now to cover np their expenses.
Apropos of this a New York dispatch says:
"Samuel Untcrmyer, the agent for the English
syndicate which is purchasing American brew
eries, said to-day that there was no truth in the
rumor that he bad made a proposition to pur
chase all tbe breweries at Roxbury, Mass.
These breweries aro Houghton's, Roessler'e,
Burkhardt's and Pf aft1.", and their aggregate
valuation is between. 84,000,000 aud $7,000,000.
Mr. Untcrmyer said:
There Is no truth ln any such rumor, and, more
over, von can sav that tbe English canltsllat&whn
are Investing lu American breweries do not want
the Roxbury breweries The syndicate which, by
the way, Is not a syndicate, but merely a number
of tngllsli capitalists is troinjc to invest ln flour
mills and rolling mills. We are already negotlat
