night at the Bijou Theater. Every seat in
the theater 'was occupied and hut littte
standing room was left On the stage a
pleasing feature was presented by the ar
ray ot bright and fresh looking graduates.
The exercises were conducted by Principal
Wood. The opening was with prayer by
the Rev. Dr. "W. J. Reid. An excellent
and well rendered programme was com
menced with a chorus, "Wake Not Dream
ing Maiden," by the young ladies of the
normal class. Following was an essay,
"Graduated, "What Then?" by Miss Daisy
"W. Lemxnon, in which was delineated the
glorious possibilities ot the future for the
graduates. Hiss Bertha Ewart, between
whum and Miss Lemmon the second honors
of the academical class had been divided,
was excused from reading, "Inthe Air," was
the subject taken by Edward Godfrey, who de
fined the value and uses of that necessary sub
stance. A song, "Time and Tide," was nven
by the already well-known vocalist. Miss Edith
R. Harris. Miss Bertha Stein gave
in an artistic miner the beauties
of 'The Circle." "Arabian Nights and
American- Days," a comparison between the
myths of ancient Oriental times and the reali
ties in the shape of useful inventions of the
present days, was given by Miss Anne McCon
way. "The United States shonld adopt a more
rigorous foreign policy," was the assertion
made by Wm. J. Reid in a well delivered and
argumentative address on the subject. A chorus
"Viva 1' America" was given, after which C
DeMoss Emmons declared that "The United
States should not adopt a more rigorous for
elcn policy." Mr. Emmons was equally as
positive and convincing in his address as Mr.
ABBEAST TaTH THE TIMES.
"The Advancement of Woman" was the sub
ject taken by Miss Mary R. Loef&cr, who fol
lowed the history of woman from the time of
Ere to the present, and gave convincing argu
ments for her equal rights. A second song,
"TheThree Fishers." was given by Miss Har
ris, loll owed by an oration on "The Industrial
System of the Future," by John W. Boyce.
Miss Alexandra M. McCrickart delivered the
valedictory address. The presentation of
diplomas by Principal Wood concluded the ex
ercises. The first honor of tho academical
class was taken by Miss McCrickart. Tho sec
ond honor was, as stated, divided between Miss
Iicinmon and Miss Ewart. Miss Mary R.
Loeffler took the first honor of the normal
class, and Miss .Margaret Clancy the second
An interesting feature of the evening was not
on the programme. If was an address by
"Walter Billow, a colored graduate. Principal
Wood announced that, while Mr. Billow had
not succeeded in winning the honor of being
nlaecd on the nrorramme. ret as he was closelv
connected with the school, having commenced
his education in the little annex to the Pitts
burg Normal School, he was sure theandience
wonld be pleased to hear him on his favor.to
topic, "The Negro."
Mr. Billow delivered in an excellent manner
a statement of the social condition of the
negro race. He showed the drawbacks and
obstacles placed in their way by the years of
slavery, but held that the future was a bright
path before them. The speaker won mnch ap
plause. He is not the first colored graduate of
the High School, three or f onr having pro
ceeded him, but none recently.

DECORATED THE STAGE.
Allegheny High School Graduates to-the
Number ot 43 Greeted tho Ejea of a
Large Andlenee nt the Opera Home
Last Evening Essays. Orations, De
bate! and Music
The Commencement exercises of the Alle
gheny High School took place in the Grand
Opera House last night. When the curtain
arose at 8 o'clock there was disclosed to the
large audience a stage decorated, not with
potted plants and flowers, but with 13 bright
and intelligent looking boys and girls who were
about to have their names handed down as the
graduates of 18S9. Principal Dodds, Snperin.
tendent Morrow, Chairman Young, ot the
Board of Controllers; Chairman J. H. Trimble,
of the High School Committee, and several
others prominent in educational interests, also
occupied seats on the stage.
The exercises opened with an overture bythe
Opera House orchestra. Bcr. D. F. McGill
then offered a prayer, and Waldo Cherry fol
lowed with the salutatory. Be chose as a sub
ject the class motto, "Carpe Diem." and pointed
out how success comes to all through opportu
nities. Miss Anna M. Warren then read in an easy
graceful styfe, an essay, entitled "Modern
Japan." Miss Warren handled the subject in
an able manner, showing the fallacy of all
childish fancies that the Japanese are standing
on their heads, or are continually doing things
A song, -Ocean Music," was sung by the
class, after which David C. Wills discussed the
negro problem. He had three suggestions by
either of which he thought the problem might
be effectually and permanently settled: First,
by the adoption of the Northern idea of social
equality; second, by complete separation, allow
ing the colored race to occupy States by them
selves and have an independent government of
their own (bnt this, he thought, was not prob
able), and. third, amalgamation. The latter
be thought very likely to ultimately result in
the solution of the problem, and. he bad many
good things to say about the colored people
which tended to create favor for this theory.
"Birds in Liteiature" was the subject ot an
essay read by Miss Lizzie McKee. The essayist
referred to the many poets who have described
In countless verses the songs of the birds. Miss
McKee possesses considerable elocutionary
An interesting debate was then engaged in,
on the subject of "Should Canada be Annexed
to the United States." Miss Jennie Duncan
ad Richard M. Kopp represented the affirm-
tive side of the question, while Miss Loretta J.
Ualzell and Howard B. Smith looked after the
negative end. The notable part of the argu
ment was that of Miss DalzelL She denounced
the Canadians as Jesuits under the control of
Roman power, and where the policy of Rome
prevails, popular education and free schools
The committee of Judges rendered a decision
indorsing the negative arcument. There was
some more music and the diplomas were pre
sented to the graduates, and Rev. Dr. McMillan
pronounced the benediction.

THE CHILDREN'S SANITARIUM.
Numerous Obstacles In the War Its Delny
Not a Personal Blatter Real Estate
Sharks Take a Hand A Year to Walt.'
A meeting of the Sub-Committee of the Al
legheny Health Committee, will be held to
morrow, for the purpose of considering the
proposed Children's Sanitarium. The matter
has been hanging fire for some time, without
anything definite being done. At the meeting
the members of the committee will either de
cide to rent the Saner property or abandon the
scheme altogether until they can secure a
more suitable location.
A representative of The Dispatch called
upon Dr. Woodburn, the city physician of Al
legheny, yesterday and interviewed him in re-'
gardto the proposed hospital. The trouble
over the selection of the site was explained by
the doctor, who said: "It has been published
that Dr. Gilliford, one of the members of the
cemmittee, was the obstructionist in the mat
ter, or the bono ot contention over which the
scheme has had much trouble. I desire to
state that this is not true. Dr. Gilliford Is dis
satisfied only on account of the proposed loca
tion; it being difficult of access. The property
the committee hare been negotiating for, is
situated on Haslett'shiU and not Spring or
Summer bill, as has been stated. It is a mile
beyond the terminus of the Bine line street
cars, and on the top of a high hill. The house
is in poor condition and would take several
hundred dollars to repair it. In the lease it is
stipulated that we would have to make the re
pairs and Dr. Gilliford, along with others, ob
jects to this.
"Everything had been arranged for, and the
committee would have rented the house for $30
per month, when a real estate agent stepped in
and claimed that he bad the control of it. He
said he had judgments against the property,
bntwouldnotrentit for less than SoO. Com
mitteeman Etnmerick put in an objection
apinst this. Those who favored renting were
Messrs. Einstein and Bobinson.
"It is almost too late in the season now to
begin operations, and it will take too much
time to look around for other sites. The
houses that are suitable, the owners will not
rent, but want to sell their property. The
name of hospital or sanitarium is obnoxious to
some people, and they do not care to have it in
meir immediate vicinity, iney ininK tnat it
would depreciate the value of their property,
and imagine that they could not rent the
house atterward. The committee will go
out and look at the ground again and try to
make a compromise with the Sauer people. If
they can do this it is probable that they will
rent the house for the summer. Next winter
we can look around and secure a better place.
1 think that the house could be fnrmshed for
about $500. We should make provision for
about 25 inmates. The house would hare to be
furnished with iron cots, mattresses, blankets,
chairs, etc. In each room we would have to
put a stand and rocker. On the floors we could
?lace mats and rugs. So carpet woula be nsed.
'he floors could be painted and the windows
curtained. It would cost -about $300 to
begin with for provisions, supplies, etc. J think
that tho Poor Board will assist us and send
patients for which they will pay us about 52
per vt eek. We bare already had oilers of three
cases. The guardians of the children would
rather give them to us than put the children
into an orphan asylum. I think we should
charge only about $1 60 per week to those who
could afford to pay. In New York, in the Chil
dren's Hospital, the scheme has been such a
great success that the stay of the children is
limited to two weeks. I think this would be
the ultimate re?;Ut here. The hospital would
be open only during the months of June, July,
August and September.
THROWING MONEY AT THEM.
The mayor of St. Louis to Distribute $5 and
Sip Bills How the Johnstown flood
Sufferen Will Fnro To-Day.
The citizens of St Louis hare determined to
take the bull by the horns m the matter to alle
viate the distress of the Johnstown sufferers.
They have decided that the committees who
handled their contributions in the past were too
slow relieving the wants of the people, and
will not give any more money to be disbursed
Last night three gentlemen arrived in the
city with 5,000 in their possession which they
will carry to the stricken town and surround
ing boroughs. The money will be distributed
by hand to the poor and needy families. It is
expected that by doing this the wants of the
people will be attended to much more quickly
than they could be if the money was given to
the general committee to be placed in the com
The gentlemen who will distribute the money
are: Edward A. Noonan, Mayor of the city; his
private secretary, Charles E. Meed, and
August Bemlcr. a representative of the organi
zations who sent the money. The funds are in
i5 and 10 bills, and the moner will be given in
such amounts as the distributors see lit. The
bills will De given principally to women, who it
is supposed will make better use of the money
than the men.
The committee will determine the needy
cases by visiting the different houses in the
stricken town, accompanied by several reliable
persons who are acquainted with the sufferers.
This will destroy any chances of the residents
of Prospect Hill, who were not washed out by
the flood, from securing the bulk of the money
in the same manner as they got clothing and
The money was raised at a concert given by
the united singing societies last Monday week,
This will make about 20,000 that has been con
tributed by the residents of St. Louis for the
sufferers. Fourteen thousand dollars of this
was donated within 24 hours after the news of
the flood became known fh the city.
Mayor Noonan is an old Pennsylvanian, and
after distributing the money will pay a visit to
his parents in Beading. After that he will go
to New York to float $300,000 worth of St. Louis

The Business of the Convention
Bronght to a Close Yesterday.
OLD CITY HALL KEGE1VED THEM,
And a Koyal Entertainment Was Giren
There to the Guests.
The hard work of wading through 'the
tiresome yet necessary business incidental
to a large convention like the one of the
National Plumbers' Association was brought
to a befitting close last ni jht, when Presi
dent Trainor announced that the Old City
Hall had been appropriately prepared for
the reception of the guests to enjoy them
selves. Music opened the programme, sing
ing followed, and an epicurean feast thrown
in as a dah of exhilaration'precedcd a
dance, the grand climax of the most success
ful convention in the history of the .plumb
The preparations made for last night's
grand entertainment had been personally
superintended by Mr. Charles H. Humbert,
the local President, and everything within
tho scope of possibility was. called into ' requi
sition by that gentleman and his lieutenants to
make the evening the most memorable event of
the entire week. The hall was made as at
tractive as money and the artistic genius of the
best Pittsburg florists could mako it, and there
was nothing lacking to please even the eye of
the most fastidious. ,
Kntering the room, the visitors instinctively
halted at the grand sight before them. Jap
anese and Chinese decorations of manifold
hues, long streamers of all colors, gigantic um
brellas, immense sunshades, and all kinds of
similar wall decorations were profusely yet ar
tistically arranged. Intermingled with all this
splendor were many flags, among which the
Star Spangled Banner was most conspicuous.
Looking toward the rear end of the
hall, the vision rested upon & ..large wall
of plants and flowers. From window
to window the stretch ot tropical
beauties was almost enchanting. Gigantic
palms in oriental vases, exquisite latauras
with leares which overshadowed the floor for
several yards, rare terns ot various exotic spe
cies were interspersed in very harmonious or
der, and the whole looked like a beautiful
wall ot verdure. In front of this floral wall a
temporary stage was arranged for the musi
cians. The Toerge orchestra furnished the in
strumental music of the evening, and the
Apollo Quartet rendered a rery select pro
gramme of the sweetest of popular ballads.
A WALIi OF FXOWEES.
But beyond the wall of flowers was the place
where the guests began to lose themselves soon
after the first moments of the evening's excite
ment were over. Here was the temporaryUan
quet hall, and the place was simply a revela
tion in all its details. The space had been
walled in with tropical plants of all kinds, and
there were hot house of llowors whoso fragrance
changed the atmosphere of the entire room
into an air of sweet elvslum. Tables were
placed all around here, and supper was fur
nished for 600 people. E. W. Hagan was tho
director in this part of the bouse, and he and
his assistants served the wants of everybody
with the greatest of promptitude.
Among the floral decorations which attracted
especial attention were the beautiful bouquets
which were handed to the ladles by Mr. John
B. Murdoch and the magnificent design of a
radiator lonpof perfection. This device was
four feet high, and had been presented to the
convention by the Michigan Radiator Com
pany. Mr. James Dell, of John It. A. Mur
doch, was the florist artist who had made the
device and brought out the beautiful harmony
of the flowers with exquisite taste.
THE MUSIC AND SPEECHES .
attracted general attention. Soon after 8
o'clock the guests of the association began to
arrive, and in a few minutes the place was
crowded to the very doors. The evening's
programme reflected great credit upon the
committee, Decause it was lull of a
variety which constituted . nothing
but the best and happiest details.
The Toerge Orchestra opened with
an orerture, "The Jolly Robbers." Then tho
Apollo Quintet Club rendered .a song, -Ob.
Hail us, e Freer and Miss Agnes Vogel sang
an arietta from the "Freischuetz." Thero were
also a number of speeches made by several of
the guests. The tenor ot all of thesf orations
was one string of eulogies of Pittsburg as a
city, of Plttsbnrgers generally and their hospi
tality, and then the Pittsburg ladies received a
tribute of thanks for the kindness they had
shown the visiting ladies.
The speech of the evening, however, was an
address by Dr. W. T. English on the subject,
"The Relation of the Physician and the Sanitary
Plumber." "I sincerely thank yon. ladies and
gentlemen," the doctor commenced, "for the
compliment involved in this public recognition
before a class of men who have, in the recent
past, giren such remarkable evidence of prog
ress in mechanical and scientific knowledge.
No two vocations hare undergone so much
in the past decade at those of medicine and
sanitary plumbing; and as they extend their
area, they approach each other more closely,
because they tend toward the same.goal that
of the physical welfare of the people. It is the
common purpose of these two vocations to
make growth more perfect, decay less rapid,
life more rigorous and death more remote.
But bow similar they appear in the main;
vet in detail their functions are widely
different. While It is the proper prerogative
of the modern scientific physician to use pre
ventive medication and exercise himself in the
interests of hygiene and sanitations, the hard
fact remains that much ot the practical ad
vancement toward hygienic methods in modern
city bnilding is due to the application of
knowledge primarily acquired through the ob
servations of the sanitary plumber dad sanitary
engineers." ., .
The doctor was repeatedly applauded during
his oration. Then the Quintet Club rendered.
a few more brilliant songs, until near 11 o'clock;
when the entire party adjourned to the" re.
freshment hall, where a very., tempting spread
awaited them alL '
In the meantime the hall was cleared, and
dancing remained the order for the rest of tho

Pierre Lorillard, the sporting character and
tobacco manufacturer, passed through the
city last night on his way home from the West.
He refused to state where he had been, but it
is pretty certain that he was Jn Missouri trying
to settle some trouble the tobacco jobbers there
are having with the Legislature. '
Some time ago the tobacco manufacturers at
Louisville, Richmond. Middletown. .O.. St.
Louis and Jersey City formed a pool or combi
nation for the purpose of maintainlog'prices.
The jobbers, to whom the manufacturers sell
their goods, bad to sign an agreement not to
sell for a cent more or less than that fixed by
the manufacturers. About three months ago
the Legislature passed a law abolishing trusts
and combinations, and the jobbers were re
strained from selling at the combination price.
The latter were bound by an agreement not to
sell below the price, and as a result the grocers
jumped in and began underselling them. This
diverted the trade to them, and the tobacco
jobbers, who could not make np the loss on
something else, had to quit altogether. A
meeting of the tobacco manufacturers washeld
a few days ago, and schemes devised forget
ting around the law.

Colonel James B. Morgan Gathered to His

lory Intermingled with IIli Own.
A lite that spanned tho chasm of time be
tween the Fort Pitt of Western Pennsylvania's
wild unsettled period and the great busy city of
Pittsbnrg of to-day, was ended on Wednesday
night. Shortly after 9 o'clock Colonel J. B.
Morgan died at the residence of Mrs. L. M.
Harding, 435 Liberty Btreet, in the 91th year of
his age. He died of his great age's natural
feebleness, and for a long time he has been
blind, deaf and almost helpless, yet be bore his
affliction lightly, and was of a cheerful, patient
disposition to the last. He leaves four children,
viz: Colonel A. S. M. Morgan, U. S. A., sta
tioned at Allegheny Arsenal; the Rev. P. Mc
Morgan, deceased: James B. Morgan, Jr., and
Mrs. Lu M. Harding, ot this city, and Mrs. Frank
Beach, of Washington, D. C.
Colonel James Banyan Morgan, son of John
and Margaret Morgan, was born on Wednesday,
October 19, 1796, at his father's country Seat,
Prospect. Princeton, N. J. His grandfather.
Colonel George Morgan, was somewhat cele
brated in the early history of this country and
enjoyed the intimate acquaintance of Wash
ington, Jefferson, Franklin, Lafayette and other
leading men of that period. He was born in
Philadelphia In 1741. and commanded the first
volunteer company organized in that city for
Colonel James JB. Morgan.
the War of Independence. In 1778 he was ap-
Sointed Indian Agent, and obtained peat in
uence with the Indians and early settlers. It
is said that his influence over Indians was more
beneficial than that of any other white man of
In 1793 he settled in Morganza, Washington
county. Pa., where the Western Pennsylvania
Reform School is now situated, tho original
tract having been purchased by his brother, Dr.
John Morgan, first Surgeon General of the
United States. On his mother's side Mr.
Morgan was descended from the De Kays, of
Orange county. New York. In 1804 his father
and family removed to Morganza. Aaron Burr
stopped at the Morgan homestead and tried to
enlist tbclr sympathy in his nefarious schemes
to found an empire. The Morgans, however,
fot rid ot him promptly, and informed the
resident of the traitor's route. They after
ward testified against him in Burr's trial.
In 1832 James B. Morgan removed to Pitts
burg from Morganza. When about 17 years
of age he was sent with a friend of his grand
father's, a Captain of a merchant ship, to make
a three years' cruise preparatory to entering
'the nary, that being deemed a sufficient prepar
ation in those days. On his return, bis father
and grandfather being dead, he assumed the
care of the estate. During the war of 1812 he
enlisted, but while on his way to Baltimore
peace was declared. So his term ot service
was brier. During the voyage be visited
Brazil (where be saw the father of the present
Emperor). Holland, both East and West
Indias, passing the Island of St Helena, where
Napoleon was then exiled. When he was 21
years old he rode on horseback from New
(York to St, Louis and back again to Morganza.
During this journey be first met Henry Clay,
who many years' after, when in Pittsburg, re
called the incidents of that acquaintance.
In December, 1829, Mr. Morgan married
Susan Gilkeson, daughter of James and Agnes
Mountain. Upon moving to Pittsburg in 1632,
he engaged in the lumber and coal business.
In 1860 he retired and devoted all his time to
his invalid wife.

Thnnks to Henry Phlnps, Jr. ' .
The Western Pennsylvania Botanical Society
held a very interesting meeting at tho parlors
of the Pittsburg, Library last evening with the
President, Dr. Hamilton, in the chair. In the
course of 'routine business, Mr. C. C. Hell or
offered a resolution cordially thanking Mr.
Henry Phipps, Jr., for his gift to Allegheny
City, the aquatic conservatory, which will form
such an admirable addition to the set of green
houses now in Allegheny Parks. The resolu
tion predicted that the botanists of Western
Pennsylvania would find great pleasure in
studying the rare specimens which would find
a place iff the collection. It was adopted, and
the Corresponding Secretary was directed to
forward a copy of the resolution to Mr.
It was announced that an effort was' being
made to organize a joint botanical expedition.
Several valuable contributions recently made
were acknowledged and admired. Among
them was a beautiful collection of acacias
from New Zealand and Van Dieman's Land,
and a Chinese work on botany, filled with
specimens of the Flowery Kingdom's flora.
Mr. W. L. Scaife sent a collection of leaves of
Brazilian plants placed upon a cardboard In
the shape of a bouquet. The texture of velvet,
satin and plush was remarkably imitated by
these leaves. Mr. C. C. Mellor contributed a
very large and well-mounted collection of in
digenous plants, secured by himself at Ohio
Mr. J. A. Schaefer bad mounted above GOO
Specimens from various sources, and was ten
ereda rote of thanks for his indefatigable
efforts in the cause. Mr. T. S. Brown sent a
genuine white strawberry plant from rfalll
day's Core, W. Va., which was examined with'
interest. Messrs. Andrlessen, of Beaver, and
Joseph A. Langfitt, of this city, contributed
books and received thanks, and in this connec
tion Dr. Hamilton remarked that a librarian
would soon be necessary on account of the
growth in the "number of valuable volumes.
Superintendent Ferguson submitted two rare
specimens: One a Bryophillum, a gigantic
house leek, the peculiarity of which was that
when a leaf dropped on the earth a new plant
sprouted from each serreture or division. The
other was a crassipes or water plant, an odd
collection of bulbs with a stalk supporting a
small flower. When the seeding process begins,
the flowerstalk turns oyer ana grows downward
into the water. The two specimens were much

An evening paper states that the 'Mononga

the majority of the Kanawha mines. It was
farther stated that the Pittsburg and Southern

The article was shown to Mr. I. N. Bunton,
and he stated that in the main it was true, save
that the Standard Oil Company had nothing to
do with the movement, and that it was some IS
months old, and bad, as far as he knew, about
fallen through. He stated that about all out

As Mr. Bunton is a member of one of the
firms connected with the attempted combine, it
iwill be generally agreed that be knows what he
is talking about. It is generally admitted that
the industry is quite sickly, notwithstanding its
enormous wealth, and it is so gigantic that a
great deal of medicine will be required to cure
it. What seems to promise best results is
water connection with Lake Erie, which will
open a field where thers Is little likelihood of
competition for many years to come, and by
making ore carriage cheaper cause a greater
consumption of coal hereabouts.

A SAD CASE OP POSITIVE INFELICITY
The sensational episode at the Central
Hotel on "Wednesday afternoon, between a
bank cashier of McKeesport and a profes
sional man of Allegheny City, was one of
the chief topics of conversation yesterday.
The Dispatch gave a complete account of
the transaction yesterday morning. The
names of the persons interested are now
public property. The professional man is
AT. D. Rankin, M. D., oi No. 103 Sandusky
street, Allegheny City; the McKeesport
business man is E. W. Pitts, cashier of the
People's Bank, of McKeesport. Until Mrs.
Rankin could be seen and it was impossible to
see her Wednesday night, as no one knew
where she was it was scarcely lair to give her
name. She was tho person who would be most
hurt by any publications regarding an affair of
Yesterday afternoon Mrs. Rankin called at
The Dispatch office to give her version of
tho story. She is a girlish-looking woman, not
looking moro than her ago as given by herself,
19 years, pretty and intelligent in appearance,
and" genuinely modest in her deportment She
was naturally nervous, as a result of the ordeal
she bad gone through, and was occasionally in
coherent and wandering in her remarks, but
she managed to maintain considerable self
possession. Mrs. Rankin was accompanied by an elderly
lady in whose houso she stayed on Wednesday
night after tho ocenrrenco at the hotel. This
lady, who would not give her name, was with
Mrs. Rankin on the Johnstown trip, and said
that she was prepared to corroborate Mrs.
"I never met Mr. Pitts before I went to
Johnstown on Tuesday of last week," Mrs.
Rankin said; "so tbat it is not true, I bad
known him for some time. I didn't even meet
him in Johnstown, either, but only became ac
quainted WITH HIM ON THE TEAIK
coming home. He and another McKeesport
gentleman were with two or three ladies who
live at McKeesport, and who are of the highest
The elderly lady said this was true, and that
Mr. Pitts had acted in a very gentlemanly and
obliging manner, among other things getting
them cups of coffee on the way home.
"It is true." Mrs. Rankin continued, "that I
did go to Johnstown against my husband's
wishes; but, as he never took me any place. I
thought I had a right to go, especially when
this lady went with me. I never received any
letter from Mr. Pitts, asking me to meet him.
I met him at the postoffice corner as I got off
the car from Allegheny, and the reason I went
to the Central Hotel was that I considered it
imprudent to stand talking to him on the street,
and I suggested that we go to the hotel parlor.
I didn't come over to Pittsburg to meet him.
and if I had done so or intended any wrong, I
would not have gone to the Central Hotel,
where I am known and where Dr. Rankin has
patients. When the Doctor came into the par
lor I cot up to introduce bim to Mr. Pitts, but
the Doctor didn't wait for that, but rushed
upon Mr. Pltti. The story of the assault,
as published in The Dispatch, is correct. The
doctor wouldn't have done it, though, if he
hadn't been intoxicated. The doctor can't have
anything elso against my character except this
story, and if I intended to do wrong I wouldn't
have gone to tbat hotel parlor, where I knew
persons, and where everyone could see us.
"I want to say," Mrs. Rankin remarked,
"that all the papers are wrong about my age.
I am only 19 years old, Instead of 23. I have
been married for two years, and lived very
happily with Dr. Rankin for a year and a' half.
It was during the holidays that the troublo
Here Mrs. Rankin-wen intoi ,a statement
largely made np of recriminations, which bring
in .her husband and third parties, and which it
would scarco help the case any to publish,
unlcs3 substantiated in a more formal way.
Mrs. Rankin then explained where she went
Wednesday afternoon after leaving the hotel.
She said she went directly home, then visited
Dr. Rankin's two sisters and Jtook supper with
them. After supper she. went back to tho
Doctor's house; but sho says be drove her
away. She spent the night with the lady who
was with -her, as already mentioned.
"I am going to Dr. Rankin's parents' home in
Washington county on the 3.45 train," Mrs.
Rankin said. "I hadn't enough money to pay
my faro and the Doctor's sisters gave me
Upon being cross-questioned as to whom she
had come over to Pittsburg to visit, and if she
didn't receive a letter from some one, Mrs,
"Yes, I did get a letter from a lady in
McKeesport to meet her at 3 o'clock on Fifth
avenue in front of the People's store, to go
shopDing. I am not certain about her name,
and I have lost the letter. I bad it with me at
the hotel; but it disappeared in the excite
ment" "Did you ever write to Mr; Pitts," was
. "No. I never did, uor be to me," Mrs. Rankin
"But Mr. Pitts says he did receive two letters
"Mr. Pitts didn't get any letter from me,"
said Mrs. Rankin. "One of his friends may. I
wrote twice to the lady in McKeesport"
"I want you to say," she went on, "that I
never complained to anyone about the doctor's
illtreatlng me. I never spoke of it to anyone
except since this trouble."
SHE WE0TE HIM TWICE.
What Mr. Pitts Says of His Correspondence
. With Sirs. Rankin.
Mr. E. W. Pitts -was seen by a Dispatch
reporter yesterday. He is rery much broken
up orer the affair, and says he regrets it on ac
count of the disgrace to his family.
"I met Mrs. Rankin for the first time on an
excursion to Johnstown." said Mr. Pitts, "and
I left the train at McKeesport A few days
later I received a letter from her asking me to
meet her in the city. Ipaid no attention to
it when I received another and agreed to meet
her, and in a letter I sent her named the Central
Hotel parlor. I very foolishly destroyed thetwo
letters she sent me, and, therefore, cannot
Erove my statement We were talking in the
otel parlor when a gentleman entered the
room, and sho said 'here is my husband.' and I
arose, expecting an introduction. Instead he
give me three licks on tho head with an urn
rella and cuspidor, and I ran downstairs,
leaving my bat in the room. I then went down
to Bennett's and got another hat and after
thinking the matter orer and knowing I had
done nothing wrong, or. intended to do any
thing wrong, I returned to tho hotel and found
that the doctor had gone."
