Sub-Chairman Gripp Tells Why no Meeting
Was Held Last Bight.
EX-JUDGE FTTEMAN ON THE PLASS
The sub-committee of the Republican
County Executive Committee, appointed at
the last meeting to revise the rules for rep
resentation in the county convention, was to
have met last evening at 7:30 o'clock. The
committee consists of John Gripp, "Walter
Lyon, "William Germon, and "William Flinn
as ex-officio member, he bavins been the
last County Chairman. Owing to the ab
sence of Mr. Lyon and Mr. Germon, no
meeting was held.
Chairman Gripp. sticking out his head
from the second-story window at 2To. 10
Montour way at 11 o'clock last night,
said: "We didn't have a meeting, because
we couldn't get a quorum. If we make any
change at all in the rules, it will be that
there shall be 367 delegates in each con
vention." That was not the idea that ex-Judge Fet-'
terman, for several years Chairman of the
County Committee, had when he talked to a
reporter of The Dispatch Testerday after
noon. "The county conventions have be
come too cumbersome, and a change is abso
lutely necessary," said he. "When I was
Chairman of the County Committee I tried
to get a change made. With one or tvo
others I drew up a set of rules, by which
there should be two delegates from each
ward in the two cities and two from each
borough and township, and that they
TOTE AS INDIVIDUAL DELEGATES.
"ifothing was done with it at the time,
but the necessity for cutting down the num
ber of delegates was fully realized by every
one. There are now 3G7 election precincts
in Allegheny county," continued Judge
Fetterman, "and in a year when most of
the county officers are to be nominated there
are nine conventions. Some delegates are
elected to two conventions, but it is safe to
say that there are over 10,000 delegates. That
makes a big draught upon the people, and a
considerable drain upon the pockets of the
candidates, as legitimate election expenses
must be paid, and in addition the delegates
expect the successful candidates to pay for
their meals. The County Commissioners
have refused to allow any room in the
Court House to be used for a county con
vention, and, therefore, outside halls
mutt be rented. It wouldn't make
much difference, anyhow, that the
rooms in the Court House cannot
be used, for there are few of them large
enough for a convention with 307 delegates
and the many other persons who attend. It
costs $100 to 5150 to get the use of one of the
theaters or big halls in the city, and yet
such a place is necessary when there are so
"The plan adopted at the first meeting of
the County Committee had some objections.
It was to have two delegates for each mem
ber of the Legislature, to be elected by
Legislative district conventions. That gave
35 to Pittsburg, 10 for the Southside and
35 for all the districts north of the Alle
gheny river. This made a total of 80 dele
gates, making 41 enough to nominate. The
objection was that either side which would
be able to obtain six of the Southside dele
gates could gain control of the convention.
The Xbrthside people objected to that, and
I don't know but what the objection was
OXLT OXE DELEGATE EACH.
"Xow the plan is to elect only one dele
gate from each ward, borough and township,
and let that delegate vote the Republican
vote that he represents. There are in Pitts
burg 35 wards, in Allegheny 13 wards,
there are 25 boroughs and53 townships, mak
ing a total of 127 delega-. in the convention.
I think it is the best andfaiiest plan that
could be devised, and is the best compro
mise in the Crawford county system that
could be made. Ever since Ben Morgan
ran for the nomination for ilavor of Pitts
burg on the Crawford county system, the
city it has had no faith in the Crawford coun
ty system. Mr. Morgan had more votes for
the nomination than there were Eepublicans
in the city, and yet his opponent had sev
eral thousand votes besides, all supposed to
be Republicans. That settled the Craw
ford county system here. It was never tried
"It is true that the primary election
laws now are more stringent and the penal
ties more severe than for a general election,
but it is much more difficult to enforce
them. Subterfuges of all kinds are resorted
to, and it is extremely hard to detect them.
"Under the plan of electing delegates by
Legislative districts, I can see that there
might have been much hard work to little
good. The delegates were to deposit the
Republican vote of their districts. Suppose
Tom Jones and John Brown, were running
against each other? Jones would set up
delegates in five or ten district!, which had,
say, a total Republican vote of 20,000.
BEOWX WOULD LAY LOW
until he found where Jones had put upTiis
delegates, and knowing that three districts,
like some of the bier ones in Allegheny,
had, say, a total of 22,000 Republican votes,
be would concentrate all his energies there,
and although he might have only 6, as
against the 10 or 20 delegates lor the
other man, he would gain the "lection."
"The system ol electing one delegate for
each ward, borough and township, cuts
down the number of delegates in each con
vention one-third, and gives a fairer show
than by the Legislative district plan. Sup
pose I put up sTdelegate in a ward which
is ior me, but where the delegate is person
ally unpopular, aud the voters defeat my
delegate, then the responsibility rests on
them. Or, suppose tney elect a man to
represent their views, and be does not, then,
still the voters are responsible ior him. The
system requires the selection ol the best and
most responsible men in a ward. The dele
gate will have the same "responsibility as a
member of the Legislature; if he does not
carry out the views o his constituents he is
responsible to them, not to the candidates
nor to the system.
"Such a plan will require candidates to
select men who are widely known. There
are a great many persons who can carry
their own precinct who would be over
vhelraincly defeated in their ward. It will
make candidates more careful in the selec
tion of delesates, and make the delegates of
a much higher standard than has been the
While Judge Gripp says that there will
be a return to the old system, Judge Fetter
man says that the change will be made, and
that Mr. Flinn says that it will be consum
mated. ANOTHER SOUTHSIDE BAHK.

A new bank to take the place of the de
funct Farmers' and Mechanics' bank on
the Southside will shortly be organized . by
manufacturers and business men on that
side. The committee of stockholders, or
those who will be, consisting of Messrs.
Wenke, Brickel and Heisy have been con
fering with John M. Kennedy, Esq., rela
tive to a charter, Mr. D. O. Cunningham is
also one interested.
There was some talk that the company
would purchase the charter of the F. and M.
Bank, but Mr. Kennedy says this will not
likely be done, as it has but three years to
run. It was chartered in 1872, belore the
ceneial banking law was passed by the
Legislature. It is not. as some suppose, an
omnibus concern like that of the Fenn
Bank, which allows the making of soap,
keeping ot a pawnshop, second-hand cloth
ing store and any of a score or so other
things, but a straight-away charter for the
purpose of banking.
Under the bill gotten up by Mr. Shiras
last winter bank charters can be renewed.
Tnis bill was intended to meet the exigency
of the expiration of the charter of the Bank
of Pittsburg, but it had to be made all to
take in one.
A new bank was talked of for some time
before the F. and M. collapsed, but it was
proposed to be located in the lower South
side, or rather abont central, as many busi

come over to this side of the river daily to
WESTERN DIVERSITY MEETING.

A Qnoliim Ilnrd to Obtain Lllllo Done
Yesterday Preparatory Abolition.
The officers of the Western University
held a meeting at the rooms of the Young
Men's Christian Association yesterday to
elect the officers for the ensuing year. The
meeting had been called three times before,
but no quorum could be obtained, and yes
terday nothing further was accomplished
than electing J. B. Scott President of the
Board of Directors and Prof. Griggs secre
tary and treasurer. The others will be
elected at another meeting, soon.
In a chat last night Prof. Griggs said that
the Johnstown flood had completely demor
alized the arrangements for building the
new University, and it was hard to get a
quorum of the officers or different commit
tees together again.
When the new building is completed, the
preparatory department, now in the R. P.
building, will be done away, and the stu
dents required to obtain their preparatory
education elsewhere. The standard of the
college will be raised in every particular.

Tho People There Want the Saw Mill Kun
An indignation meeting of the citizens of
the West End will be held Friday evening,
June 28, at the Thirty-sixth ward school
house to take some action relative to re
moving the dam situated at the month of
Saw Mill run. It is said that this dam has
caused the run channel to be filled in to the
extent of closing all the sewers emptying
into the same and is now a constant menace
The original depth of the run was eight
feet. Constant rain has washed the bank
considerably and has filled in the channel.
Upon every heavy rain the water is forced
into the sewer pipes, and from thence into
the cellars of many houses on Wabash ave
nue and Main street, causing loss to prop
erty and endangering health. The dam was
erected by the trustees of the Woods estate.
A year since an appeal was made to the
trnstees in regard to doing away with the
dam. 2no attention was given to the re
quest, and now the citizens propose to take
the matter into their own hands.

Homewood Driving Park Directors
Will Raise $5,000 to

The Next Legislative Session Will be Asked
to Allow Pool Selling.
AN IMPORTANT MEETING YESTERDAY
TheHomewood Driving Park Associa
tion dies hard, despite the blows dealt it by
moralists who decry poolselling, A move
was made yesterday by the directors of the
association, which looks as if the gentlemen
interested had faith in the future of racing
in this vicinity.
For some months rumors have been rife
crediting the stockholders of the Driving
Park with an intention of disposing of the
park, either in whole or in part, owing to
the discouraging aspect of racing herea
bouts. It is well known that the depriva
tion of the receipts of the pool box places
the association beyond the possibility of
holding a successful meet, the distance from
the city renderins the item of receipts from
attendance entirely too uncertain for any
dependance being placed upon it.
The refusal of the last session of the Legis
lature to' take action favorable to the associ
ation was thought to have placed a quietus
upon the future of racing in Pittsburg. It
has been currently rumored and believed
that the association was even pressed for
money to meet current expenses and de
mands. A meeting of the directors was held yes
terday in the banking office of Mr. Charles
J. Clarke, on Wood street. President Ed
ward H. Brainard occupied the chair and
an animated discussion of the future pros
pects of the park was indulged in and views
were freely exchanged. Although several
directors were in favor of giving up the
fight and selling the park, others took the

and said: "After a great deal of discussion
a strong feeling in favor of holding on to the

LEGISLATION HOPED FOE.
"Oh, yes! We shall wait patiently until
the Legislature meets again, and will then
make a vigorous effort to obtain the conces
sions which are so essential to the future
existence of the Driving Park. It may be
smoother sailing next time. At any rate,
we shall not be bothered with these small
enenmbranots, which have really occasioned
some uneasiness to our members.
"I am glad that this decision has been
arrived at, for we all contemplated the
breaking up of the park as a genuine calam
ity, as an extreme step to be taken only
when all other expedients fail. The Home

In a chat yesterdav, a prominent coal
operator, who was at the conference, said:
The benefits which Pittsburg would derive by
having a water route to the great lakes is
simply beyond comprehension. It is estimated
that at' least 6 000,000 tons of coal and iron
would be shipped by this route to and from
Pittsburg proper in tbo course of a year. The
cost of shipping iron ore to Pittsburg would be
greatly reduced, wlille. on the other hand, the
coal producers of Western Pennsylvania would
be able to send their coal to the lakes and the
great northwest at much less cost than it can
be transported by rail. The railroads cannot
supply the demand.. Tbey are not able to five
the transportation required. Give Pittsburg a
water nay to the lakes and there will be a revo
lution of incalculable benefit to all branches of
industry here and hereabouts.

A LIVELY SESSION.
The Grand Council of the Sovereigns of In
dustry Meets A Hot Discussion on tho
A lively meeting of the Grand Council of
the Independent Sovereigns of Industry
was held last night in the Moorhead build
ing. The object was to consider the new
constitution, which gives the grand body
jurisdiction over the order in all
States and Territories. At present the
Grand Council only possesses a charter
allowing it to work in this State. The idea
to extend the order outside met with gen
eral favor, and a committee was appointed a
year ago to secure a new charter and make
a new constitntion. It was intimated, after
this committee got down to work, that the
grand officers were engineering things to
suit themselves, and there was a general
objection in the subordinate councils.
There were about 125 delegates present at
the meeting last evening, and Grand Presi
dent Buckley was in the chair. Numerous
objections were filed to the new constitution,
aud when the Council bdjourned, at 11
o'clock, the first, second; and part of the
third articles only had been considered.
The first objection that was raised was to
the proposed makeup of the Grand Council.
The committeo recommended that all officers
and members of the present Grand Council,
and all Presidents of subordinate councils,
now holding office or that shall hereafter be
elected, should be made permanent members
of the Grand Council. This was defeated
after a long discussion, and the present sys
tem of representation was adopted.

power to enlarge or diminish the number

President be given the power to appoint a

ITS STRENGTH COST MANYl LIFE.
Something Abont Its History and How it
Came to be Built.
RELIEF ITEMS AND OTHER FLOOD DRIFT
Ever and anon will there be Indirect
causes attributed for the awful Johnstown
disaster; but a striking one presented itself
yesterday, and that was the Conemaugh
vinduct which, in a measure on account
of it's fitrnnt nrnnnrtinnq and TPsistenefi
(caused a loss of life far greater than would
have occured had it been carried away with
minor structures. The viaduct has been
known and considered by engineering ex
perts as the finest work of bridge- architec
ture in the railroad world, and its history is
one of great interest
Inquiry among the Pennsylvania Bail
road people resulted in little information;
but at the engineers' headquarters, and
through the courtesy of Colonel T. P.
Roberts, a brief outline was learned in re
gard to the viaduct. The disastrous feature
of the structure in the late catyclism was
that it acted as a fortification, which "tempo
rarily dammed the waiter and floating debris,
and then, when everything else built by
human hands would fail to resist the power

common wooden wrecks, the fate
of thousands of lives was sealed.
that the viaduct had gone, but added: "If
any or all of it has been swept away, the
greatest flood has come down there that ever
occurred in the Conemaugh Valley."
The resisting force of the bridge was most
apparent, as there was a new water course
cut to the left and over the side of the
mountain after the rubbish had risen over
the structure. This is another plausible
argument that its staunchness caused
greater devastation than if it had been
swept awny at once. The watermark shows
now that above the bridge the watertoUched
a point of 60 feet; but after the structure
had in part collapsed the marks below
showed an altitudeof only 30 feet,which grad
ually diminished between the viaduct and
Johnstown. The temporary stoppage- of
the water, and subsequent breaking away of
the bridge gave all the more momentum -.to
the mad rush of waters, and made many more

This will give an idea of what the famous

The bridge is a famous structure, and has
been examined by dukes, other noblemen
and a legion of other prominent people, who
considered it a marvel in the architectural
and engineering line. It was a portion of
the old Portage road, a continuation of the
Pennsylvania canal, which is well known
as a State institution.
AT A TXKT LARGE COST.
It was afterward purchased by the Penn
sylvania Railroad forS5,000,000, and utilized
from Summerhill to Johnstown as a road
bed for the railroad. The late Colonel Mil
ner Roberts was the designer, engineer and
builder of the great bridge, and at that
time 1832 there were very few civil en
gineers in the country. Mauy doubted
the feasibility of making a curve
in a canal aqueduct: but this was effected
very successiully, as has been proven by the
results. Associated with Colonel Bnuerts
were Solomon AV. Roberts, Edward Miller,
William E. Morris and W. M. Boberts. all
practical civil engineers.
The bridge was remarkable in that day,
from the fact of its span, and skilled reser
voir builders marveled at it. The single
span is 80 feet, and its length is also 80 leet
Its cost could not be ascertained definitely;
but the Portaee road alone cost the State
535,000,000. Shortly alter "the road had
been fiuished, in 1832, a tremendous flood
occurred iu that portion of the State which
obliterated the canal ior miles down toward
Pittsburg; but this memorable bridge'with
stood that terrible shock, while smaller ones
were dashed to pieces.
Even after the recent annihilation of lives
and property, portions of the grand old
structure stood in the main intact, showing
its great strength.
The Pennsylvania Railroad. Company is
rebuilding it; but, with all credit to the
builders, there can be only one Conemaugh
viaduct Unfortunately, it was too strong,
so that its reMstingjorces caused additional
loss of life which goes to show that the vir
tue of a good thing may prove a powerful
enemy to the world.

Eli Thrllllns Experience In Getting Bnfei

Adams Express Messenger Fritz, who was
on the day express which left Pittsburg on
the morning of the flood at Johnstown, -had
a very lively time reaching New York with
his five safes fuljl of money and valuables,
according to the report he filed with Super
intendent William Hoey at New York. He
sat on his sales lrom tlic time of the flood
until Sunday merniug, when be hired six
four-horse teams and commenced the jour
ney across the mountains to Altoona.
Three days and lour nights were spent in
idleness in Altoona, and the journey east
ward was commenced by rail, aud a series of
remarkable experiences were gone through
with in order to reach New York. Streams
were crossed in beats and by means of shaky
foot bridges, and several narrow escapes for
lile and" property happened.
The journey was finally accomplished
after eight days and seven nights of hard
work. The distance between Pittsburg and
Nw York was traveled several times in
doubling back and forth. The experience
is quite unwonted in the history of the

Mrs. Dr. Enston Leave the Ladle' Relief
Committee on Account of Tronble Wltb
At the rooms of the Ladies' Relief Com
mittee yesterday there was a noticeable ab
scence of the ladies who formerly presided
over the Bureau ot Information. Mrs. Dr.
Easton, Chairman of the bureau, and her
assistant had withdrawn, and refused to
work there any longer.
Mrs.. George A. Kelly, member of the
Executive Committee, stated that on Friday
alternoon an article had appeared in one of
the papers that reflected somewhat on the
Executive Committee, and she thought the
information had been furnished by the
Bureau of Information. She spoke to Mrs.
Easton about it and that lady denied that
the facts came from her department. Mrs.
Kelly also stated that she was not pleased
with the action of the chairman of the
Bureau of Information, going to Johnstown
to consult with the authorities there. The
request had been sent to her by General
Hastings for the information as to the suf
ferers entertained in this city. She sent the
desired matter, and afterward found that
Mrs. Easton had been in Johnstown and
supplied the information.
Mrs. Dr. Easton was seen last night and
stated that she had retired simply because
she did not wish to submit to the "insults ot
jealous minded members of the Executive
Board. She did not propose to be domin
eered over by them. Her visu to Johns
town was made at the suggestion of Chair
man McCreery, who advised her to consult
with the Burean of Information in Johns
town. She was working under the direction
of the State authorities' and she did not
propose to give up the work. She said she
wili continue it at her own home where she
will not be bothered with jealous rivals.

Their Work for Johnstown.
The Executive Committee of the Ladies'
Relief Committee have at last determined
to change their headquarters, and during
the early part of next week will remove
from the Female College building to the
Exposition building. The cause of the
change is the fact that there is a large lot of
goods at the Exposition building which have
been placed in the ladies' hands, and in
order to get things into a systematic shape
so that they may know just what goods they
have the change in headquarters is made.
The list of persons cared lor yesterday by
the ladies is as follows: John Besky,
Mrs. H. Heidrick, Mrs. William Morrison,
Mary J. Hale.Mrs. William Welzer.Joseph

DON'T WANT THE ZOO.
Allegheny Millionaires Have a Be
monstrance Against It.
CALL H AN OUT AND 0DT NUISANCE
Alleghenians Probably Will Do Without a
S0MB OP THOSE THAT HEAD THE LIST
It is probable that there will be a great
deal more fun about the proposed Allegheny
Zno, before it has been actually established,
than could be afterward, even if the
menagerie were ever so large.
The fact of the matter is that the resi
dents along the park are raising very strong
objections to any zoological garden being
established on Monument Hill, and in order
to make their opposition effective a remon
strance has been drawn up, and with the
signatures of all the millionaires along
Irwin, Lincoln and Ridge avenues it is to
be handed to Councils with the urgent re
quest of prohibiting the establishment of
any menagerie on the top of the hill.
THE OBJECTIONS AEE JfANIFOI.l5.
Somebody anticipates a very strong odor
from the close proximity of Polar bears,
hyenas and monkeys. Another has an idea
that the sudden roar of an African lion in
the middle of the night might seriously
cause him to be inflicted with a nightmare
of horrid dreams, beside waking up the
children. The professors of the Western
Theological Seminary think that the at
tractions of the study of practical zoology
might prevent their students to take the
necessary interest in the ethics of theology
and ruin their institution. In short every
body in the neighborhood of Monument Hill
is already in fear of the consequences
which might possiblyarise from the Zoolog
ical Garden, and while they are all primed
with reasonable objections against it, they
have not even mentioned the lact that a
tiger might some day break loose and mur
derously attack somebody.
EVEEYBODT 13 AGAIHST IT.
The Dispatch was apprised of themove
ment of remonstrating against the Zoo late
last night, and when a reporter went over to
Allegheny all the residents around the
park were apparentlv in deep slumber, but
Mr. McHenry, the druggist on the corner
oi Western and Irwin avenues, was still
visible in his store, and when he was asked
about the remonstrance he said:
"Yes, the people along Irwin avenue,
Ridge avenue and Lincoln avenue are all
up in arms against the Zoo. I am not
posted on the particulars of their objections,
but I know that tbey are equally strong
against it. Every prominent man, I be
lieve, from Mr. Henry Phipps to Mr. H.
Darlington, Mr. E. Gregg and many others,
say that the thing 'would be an out-and-out
nuisance, and if they can prevent it from
being established, they will certainly do it.
I saw the remonstrance and there are about
0 names on the list, which will be handed
to Councils as soon as possible."
IK THE OLD UEttUAJf WAT.
The Feast of Corpus CbristI to be Observed
on Troy Hill To-Day.
This morning the residents of Troy Hill,
Allegheny, who are parishioners of Rev.
Father Mollinger's church, will participate
in one of their regular old-time observances
of Corpus Christi day. In the other Catho
lic churches throughout the city, the feast is
celebrated the tenth day after Pentecost, but
Father Mollinger believes in the old Ger
man manner of observing the day and al
ways does it on Sunday.
Last night the houses surrounding the
church were decorated with flags, bunting,
lantern, etc. The streets were covered with
sweet-smelling tan bark and arches have
been built on the corners. After mass this
morning a procession will form at the church
and march through the streets. Upon some
of the latter altars have been erected where
benediction will be pronounced by Father
Card of Tbnuks to Sir. Dcvore.
Mr. W. H. Devore, undertaker, was

Mr. E. Jordan, long- known as the pro
prietor of the bathing boat in the Allegheny
river, below the Sixth street bridge, is will
ing to make an arrangement by which tho
boat will become s free bathhouse. The boat,
with its improved appliances, is valued at
$12,000. Mr. Jordan proposes to contribute)
$4,000 of its stock toward the project, the
remaining $8,000 to be contributed by the
city or by charitably disposed persons. The
boat will theirbeco'me free to the public,
Under reasonable restrictions to secure per
lect good order and safety, to the bathers.
Furthermore, Mr. Jordan will give his own
time and services free to the new enterprise
for the rest or the ye.ir, and will himselr
pay all the employes of the boat dnring that
Mr. Jordan very properly remarks that
Pittsburg should not be behind the large
Eastern cities which maintain free public
baths. There is no more worthy charitr
than to furnish the poor of the city a good
place to bathe in the warm weather. 'The
general public health will be improved
thereby. Add to which tb'j fact thatTaU
can learn to swim quickly and solely, which
may oiten be the means ot saving human
lives. Mr. Jordan believes that the public
