being too early to adjonrn court, John S. Robb,
Esq., who took op the liquor cases that the
Supreme Court decided yesterday, suggested
to Judge Stowe that he spend the balance of
the afternoon in rehearing wholesale liquor
The Judge laughed heartily, but shook his
head In a most positive manner. All the attor

While the legal fraternity was very nearly as
much interested in the last say, it did not show
it to the same extent as did a man who had th6.
lease of a building on his hands with no other
business to put into it.
Mr. Fitzsimmonshad. to do the talking for
Robb and Fitzsimmons, the other end of the
firm being elsewhere engaged. Mr. Fitzslm
mons had thought the matter over until his
words were greatly condensed and a yarn could
not be corkscrewed out of him. He said all the
rejected applicants would be compelled to do,
provided they had filled the qualifications
required by law, would bo to ask for the license,
and tender their cash and go on their waye-'
joicing. As to former appeals, in whlch-the
rulings of the lower court were sustained as in
harmony with the Brooks law, they stood on a
very different foundation. Continuing, he
The actor 18S7in reference to the wholesale
liquor trade is directory. The Judge has no dis
cretion whatever where the applicant fills .the
hill as prescribed, has a character that Is not as
called and Is an American citizen. The question
of necessity does not enter.
MR. CHBISTT ON HOBSON'S CHOICE.
B. C. Christy, Esq., calmly stated that if the
fluestion of necessity could cot be raised that
was all there was of it. All that is needed
now is a man to stand well With his neighbors,
have a good name and cash enough to pay for
his license and lay in stock.
Though Morton Hunter, Esq., partially won
his case through the decision on the other
cases, which was some consolation, yet his,
Commonwealth ex rel Kaiser vs. Hill, tell by
the wayside. He hadn't seen the opinion, and
could not, therefore, analyze the reasoning of
the Court. Mr. Hunter had attacked the act
of 1SS7 on the ground of unconstitutionality.
He stated that in the interest of general trade
he considered the law of 1872 much better than
that of 1SS7. Under the act of 1872 a man
tendered cash for license, gave bond and paid
according to the amount of his sales.
There was some discussion whether, the Li
cense Conrt having adjourned, it wonld not be
necessary to hold an fxtra session. Some also
tboogbt that the matter must be begun de
novo. There wcro said to be some lawyers
holding this .view, but the inquirer did not
come across any of them, and Messrs. Fitz
simmons. R. D. Johnston and William Beardon
all supposed that all that was required was
that Judge White convene his court and pro
ceed. As the Snpreme Court -granted a pro
cedendo, which in plain United States means,
go on with your rat killing, there doesn't seem
to be any other way iu the case, and, as Mr.
Fitzsimmons terms it, it would come under the
denomination ol unfinished business.
A DEATH-BLOW TO SPEAK-EASIES.
A general opinion prevailing among laymen
was that the decision would be death to speak
easies, for in sections ot the city where they
flourish best their patrons will no longer play
the dodge game, but get up a pony purse and
buy a quart. A quart of whisky makes about
ten square drinks for seasoned soaks, and they
can put in 8 cents apiece and get a very fair
article of whisky for that sum. But few people,
either, will sneak into a speak-easy when tney
can buy a bottle of beer in the same square.
In some sections, also, there is wide-spread
complaint that since monopoly was es
tablished many saloon keepers have decreased
the size of beer glasses until a thirsty man
must nay 15 cents to get a square drink. This
complaint does not come from topers, bnt from
men who like a glass of beer now and then, and
who have ample means to pay. One of them,
whose income is $3,000 a year, said:
Don't care to much for the cost as I do for the
hoggery. but yet 1 object to paying more for a
glass of beer than It Is worth, just as strenuously
as I do to paying more for food or wearing apparel
than tney are worth. It Isn't sound business and
is aemorallzlng. 1 have made arrangements with
a brewing company to be supplied with beer by
case, and hereafter I'll do most of my drinking at
The complaint has become more general,
-since the flood, and people cannot altogether
disabuse themselves of the impression that
when they drink water they are wilfully ab
sorbing bacilli, bacteria, animalcules, or other
animal or vegetable matter which has no place
in a self-respecting water supply. x
WHAT THEIB COUNSEL SAT.
J.Scott Fnrguson and Josiah. Cohen acted
for the Wholesalers' and Brewers' Association
in presenting paper books to the Supreme.
Court in the test case of Wholesaler T.'D.
Casey. Yesterday afternoon Mr. Cohen was
busy answering calls'from unsuccessful appli
cants, bnt be found time to say:
It was a great victory .for us. We took the stand
that there was no connection between the whole-1
sale act ana the uroocs law, and that all that was
necessary In the case or a wholesaler, brewer or
bottler was that he bad obeyed the law, was of
good moral character andbad proper credentials
of citizenship. '
Thefiupreme Conrt will now make Its report to
the Court of Quarter Sessions, Jndge Stowe being
on the bench, and order that Its decisions be car
ried out. We cannot tell, or course, yet, but ltls
probable that the rchearings will commence next
week. The Court has decided that wholesale
licenses must be grren under the law or Its:, and
not under tbe old law of 187Z, as the lower court
contended. Where there was no remonstrance
LICENSES MUST BE GRANTED
according to citizenship, obedience to the law
heretofore and good moral character. The neces
sity for the license has nothing to do with the
granting to applicants.
J. Scott Fnrgusun came in at this -.point in
the conversation and agreed with Mr. Cohen
in what had been said. '
Can a retailer who was refused license now ap
ply for a bottler's or wholesaler's license?" was
'No, it will only apply to rehearfngs on the
applications made at the required time," said ilr.
an Apparent confliction.
Has the Supreme Court reversed Itself In Its de
clsionr Well, in some cases there Is an apparent
conflict, but not real. This was in cases where
the wholesale and retail licenses were intermixed. ,
The only case we had to work against was Leister's '
appeal, declared October 3, 1SS7, In which the
fcupreme Court's decision was that only the
records were to be considered. In oar "Book of
I'lalntlffln Error, " we stated the following as
signments or error:
The record does not show anT reason for Ihe re
lusal of the application of plaintllt In error for a
wholesale liquor dealer's license. The record
shows no remonstrance or evidence against the
The record shows full and complete compliance
of the plaintiff In error with the requirements of
act or Mar !i 18S7.
We lawyers had to be very careful how we ap
proached the Snpreme Conrt, as the appeal was in
eome tcspects final, and they were not obliged to
consider the appellate matter.
Those that have been knocked out of business all
the time have no redress. ltisaxaseof damnum
obseque injuria, or a wrong without redress, and
the Court cannot be blamed for any decision it
WANT TO KNOW BIGHT AWAST,
Mr. Cohen said that they would go before the
Court to-morrow and find out just when the
- cases wonld be reheard.
Several retail applicants came into the office
with a shade of hope on their countenances, but
went away with the last hope fled, owing to the
witheringinswer, "This does not' apply to you.
WHAT THE TRADE SATS.
T.D.Casey, the wholesaler, when seen by
the reporter, said:
I have not got much to say. Of course I in glad
that it came out all right. I have have had great
hopes all along, and this only confirms it. I have
lost over P.O00 by the suspension of business In
l'lttshnrg, and can get no return. Many of my
customers have gone elsewhere.
Tom Delaney I guess there is no hope for the
retailers. We can do nothing but grin and bear It.
SPECULATIONS ON THE FOTTTBE.
Several ex-saloon keepers beard hi conversa
tion were busily arguing the possibility of every
retailer who.did not get a license, next year ap
plying for a bottler's or wholesaler's license,
and the general opinion was that if nothing un
foreseen happened there would be a goodmany
wholesalers and bottling houses next year.
I don't see wby It isn't better to have a wholesale
license anyway than a retail license. There Is more
liquor sold lately by the bottle, hair pint and"
quart, by far. And a man could sell Just as much
beer by the bottle as by the glass, and make more
money that way.
MAJOB BROWN ON" LEGAL TOINTS.
Major A. M. Brown was approachedv when
the report first was circulated, ,but he. was loth
to pass an opinion on .it until the full text of
tne decision was at nana, ae read, nowgrer, a
portion of the finding which referred directly
to Pittsburg wholesale liquor dealers and said:

states that the court shall grant license to any ap

moral character. It then Is not a matter of arbi

"White had overstepped his bounds. Hence the

Much conjecture has been indulged in as to
whether those not appellants in the wholesale
trade to the higher court conld secure a re
hearing. Major Brown continued by paying:
On this point, as stated in the opinion handed
down In Mrs. Pollard's case. It says the retail
and wholesale laws are most distinctive In the
Brooks law. I think the applicant, named will
merely reapply, and then, Ifrefuseda rehearing,
will appeal to the higher conrt as before, the
others will no doubt follow the example, and-act
according to this case.
THINKS ANOTHER JUDGE WILL SIT.
Major Brown laugned when asked if he
thought Judge White wouia ever again sit on
tho .License Court bench, and said: "No, I
John S. Lambie, Esq., after reading the short
decision rendered, said:
It Is a mistake to say, as staled here, that pro
cedendo implies that the Court shall grant any
wholesale license; it simply means the Court shall
rehear them. Suppose some or these wholesale
dealers have been selling "speat-easIes".know-lnglv,
what does that bear upon a man's char

tho reversal by the Supreme Court ot Judgo
White's decision in the wholesale and bottlers'
"It was nothing hut lustIce,of course. Many of
the people who made application were not En

A Formidable and Significant 1.1st, Em.

County Dcnlcrs Who May Apply Agnin
A very formidable and, in some respects very
significant list ot the 125 wholesale, bottling
and brewing firms refused licenses in the cities,
boroughs and townships of this county, is com
piled from the list ot wholesalers in .various
capacities who were applicants (compared with
the list, as pnblisbed at the time, of the few
who were granted wholesale licenses), is ap
pended. It is formidable by reason of the
numbers, the wealth and Jhe influence of the
more or less defunct, brewers, bottlers and
wholesalers it represents, and significant be
cause of the proportion of tbo applicants who
will undoubtedly consider themselves privi
leged under the Supreme Court declsjqp to ap
ply for rehearings and the right to sell." There
may be. included in this list'of 128; two orthree
whose applications were withdrawn before
their names were called for a bearing; but it is,
in the main, accurate, and certainly complete:

For Watches, Jewelry and Valuables
Under the Flood's Wreck.
J. P. EOBERTS TELLS. 0F.A PLAN
By Which Thousands of Dollars' Worth of
Goods May ho Saved.
MARVELOUS FACTS AB0DT THAT GOEGE.
Just above tho stone bridge at Johnstown,
about 250 yards, Stoney creek joins the
Conemangb. Stoney creek, by the bye, is
much the larger of the two. The width
from the junctidn down to the bridge is about
200 feet the waters covering say about
three acres. This is the scene of the worst
part of "the jam" above the arch t railroad
bridge. Into this space, tho wrecks of sev
eral hundred houses with an assortment of
debris from stores, warehouses, bridges,
wire mills and forest trees were squeezed
intd a compact mass. Here also hundreds
of human beings, with the furniture of their
houses and valuables of all kinds, were in
discriminately mingled with the wrecks oi
their homes. "With the aid of fire and hoist
ing engines all the material standing in
heaps above the water level has been re
moved. When the writer on Tuesday last visited
the place it appeared at .first sight to be a
simple matter to remove the remaining por
tion of the debns,but after being informed
by Messrs. Shaw and Anshutz, who have
charge of forces there, that v the depth of
water is in some places 26 feet in this pool,
and that most of it is fully 15 feet deep below
low water surface a different phase is put on
the problem. It conld not be learned whether
or not there was such a deep bole in the Cono
maugh before the flood, but a Pittsburg civil
engineer Is inclined to tbo belief that this deep
scour in the bed of the creek was made by the
passage of a powerful current developing un
der the drift, which for a time during the
highest water did not touch the: bottom. The,
appearance ot the great boulder bars In tho
bed of the stream" immediately below the
bridge tends to support this conclusion. This
engineer has often observed the formation of
gravel and boulder bars below ice gorges
caused by powerfnl bottom currents excavat
ing the bed of the stream beneath the packed
ice. At Johnstown instead of ice there was a
As the case now stands no more of the stuff
in the river can be burned until it is dragged
out on the banks, 'deposited in heaps, covered
with petroleum and fired. This of course is a
very tedious proceeding with' tho inefficient
means at command. To expedite the work
Major Phillips is sinking charges of 40 pounds
each ot dynamite in the water as deep as he
can place them. The chief utility of this blast
ng is to loosen up the masses of timbers, shake
tne Sana xrom tnem ana Durst tne roas ana
wires, which seem to have knit the- material
together. Just how long It will take to remove
all the wood and other debris from this pool it
is difficult to estimate. There aro horrors con
nected with the work the descriptions qf which
would fairly sicken yonr readers. The force of
the blasts is something terrific ugly hlack
water bolls high in the. air with more or less of
the blackened debris, pieces of which are
hurled sometimes several 'hundred feet high.
As Major Phillips says,,but few men indeed
can stand the sickening1 stench created for
some timo after the shots are fired, and it is
well to be on the windward side in approaching
to fasten the lines to timbers. The workmen
walk over tho surface of the debris with safety
excepting in a crooked channel in the Center,
which is probably not clear all the way to the
bottom, although there are spots where the
bottom can be reached with sounding poles.
The effect of the blasting is, of course, to
tear the bloated and fast decomposing remains
of the dead to fragments, but this must be
done. This pool of three acres must be cleared
to the bottom, and every bone of the human
beings it contains taken out Common human
itarlan instincts demand this, because it'muBt
not be said that'tbere jUstabove, tho railroad
oriage in jonnstown remains a neap oi me
dead which could hot be recovered for want 'of
means. , ,
a mine of Wealth.
So much blasting has been done, and the con
dition of the bodies erf the dead must be such
bythis time that they will, never float up. So
also has the blasting shaken loose metals,' such
as coins, watches, trinkets and jewelry of all
kinds, ornaments, etc., and these will gravitate
to the bottom. The sand which filled the
wreckage in great quantities has long ere this
worked to the bottom, and may be now several
feet deep, covering ether heavy objects which
have dropped irom tne niastca aeons aoove.
How to recover these valuables from their
submarine bed is a problem' that The Dis
patch undertook to solve yesterday. The
views of Colonel T. P. Roberts, the well-known
engineer, were songht by a reporter. He said
tho valuables and all human bones should be
recovered by all means. -As to the manner of
"It would appear to the writer, therefore,
that after all the floating-debris has been re
moved that these three acres must be gone over
with a dredge boat, Mr. Shaw suggested it to
me while I was in Johnstown as something
which would probably have to be done. If it
is postponed tbe first considerable flood from
either tho Conemaugh or Stony creek
will in all probability fill the pool
with 10 to 15 feet of gravel and
tbe removal of which would vastlylncrease tbe
cost should it be proposed in the future to do
this work. The best way to do it is to have a
hull built at the place' and dredging machinery
capable of going to ZS feet depth transported
to the place, and put 'on the boat. Instead of
ordinary dumping scows two large flat boats
should be provided on which the material
removed can be sorted over with shovels.
There is no doubt that tbe contents of many
stores were washed into thisplaice though the
chief ''object of doing this work would, of
course, bo tho recovery of .human remains. It
is work that can be let out by contract to re
sponsible parties to advantage.
' THE DBEDOING SCHEME.'
"The rough bars referred to in the bed of the
creek for several hundred yards below the
bridge," continued Colonel Roberts, "should
also be dug up and cast back In a systematic
way, for the recovery of valuables, which may
have been washed through the' bridge. This is
work that can be accomplished by hand at a
"Johnstown may be referred to as a far worse
wreck than that of Pompeii. There tbe in
habitants nearly ail escaped witlutbeir lives,
and carried oil almost everything of value.
But no one can visit the ruins of Johnstown
without realizing that he is treading ground
more sadly desolated than any of which history
makes mention since the destruction of Jeru
salem and Carthage: .The place cannot hope to
recover as rapidly as did Chicago, for that was
a great market and distributing center, to
which merchants flocked from every direction.
Johnstown was simply the abiding place of an
industrions population of working people
mostly tho owners ot their own dwellings. They
will need enongh from their generous country-,
men to provide them at least decent shelter'
until with their savings they can rebuild per-,
manentlv. The money so far raised Is not more
thdn half enough to do even this and yet wo
hear that the State expects to do its work of
clearing the streets,'and stop work within a
week or so, and leave the Johnstown people
the weary task of clearing away the sand and
debris from a great desert'of hundreds of acres
In extent. Can thev do this, while working for
their living in the mills? I wot not. .It is to bo
hoped that the Governor and his excellently
chosen commission will be able to devise means
to conclude the work properly."
Colonel Roberts' -views are Important in this
connection, because of bis engineering experi
ence and his investigations on the spot.

ONE f IBM SIGNS.
And SevernJ Other Iron Concerns AreTJx
pectcd to Follow Salt.
The first firm to sign tbe Amalgamated Asso
ciation iron scale was the Maum'ee Iron Com
Eany, a small concern at Toledo, O. A num.
er of Pittsburg firms were visited by a, repre
sentative of this paper, and asked what they
would do. Ho very satisfactory replies- were
received, as the manufacturers would not state
positively what their intentions are, except to.
say iney win not sign tne scale as it now
A. M. Byers & Co, did not care to talk on the
subject, but said that they would not sign the
scale. When asked whether a conference
wonld be held with the men tney declined to I
J. Painter & Sons said they would not sign,
but declined to say anything further on tbo
subject. Jones & .Xanshlins, Oliver Bros. &
Phillips, Zng & Co., Shoenberger- & Co. and
other large manufacturers made the same reply
to the question.
A man who is posted on the iron trade in this
section said yesterday that thrde large firms
would undoubtedly sign before many days, as
they are crowded with orders. They are A. Ji.
Byers & Co., the Pittsburg Forge and I.ron
Company, Jones & Laugblins and Oliver Bros.&
Phillips, He said that these firms arc crowded
with orders and cannot very well aiTord to close
their works at this time even for repairs that
are usually made in the summer.
A member of the firm of Carnegie, Pbipps it
Co. was seen yesterday and sard: "We have not
received any signers to our Homestead scale,
and I do not know whether it would be advisa
ble to make it public if any had signed. I can-
..... ...itla, .lA M,,.t (,.. ..... .... ..A AA.tAr..A.
uu, jiiumb, tut? icuit.uu, vvt3 uu uu, iiuuuuaui
any serious trouble.' I have not considered the
iron scale very carcrully yet, nut II it Is a fair
scale we will likely' consider it favorably."
THE IKON WORKERS' SCALE.
Jones ifc Lnnjjhllns Have Not Yet Agreed
to Sign It. ,
Hon. B. F. Jones, of the American Iron
Works of Jono & Laughllns, was seen last even
ing in regard to a report that his firm had
called for a conference with the mill commit
tee and wonld likely sign the Iron workers'
scale. He said:
We have-not. yet considered the matter and I
cannot say whether we sign it as it now stands or
not. Ueneral Manager Barnes has been consult
ing all day with a committee ilront the steel de
partment ou their scale and anotber conference
will be held to-morrow. The scale in this depart
ment may be satisfactorily arranged, but It wilt
not affect' more than 10U men.
The scale as drawn up by tho Amalgamated As
sociation may be satisfactory to a number or firms,
while others cannot afford to sign It. I believe a
number of firms who do not manufacture certain
grades- or kinds of Iron where serious changes
have been made will sign. U'e have not examined
the scale' very closely and I do not care to talk on
the subject, but I do not think we will sign.
Mr. Jones said they had orders, but that they
had been pretty well cleared up. if there is
any indication of trouble with the workers
they will refuse to receive any more, orders.
Ha was very guarded in replying to the ques
tions asked him, hut said if certain concessions
were made by the workers' organization that a
strike might be avoided.
Chemically Pare nnd Perfectly Clear Water
Near nt Hnnd.
Messrs. .Hnllcr, Beck & Co. are now giv
ing away large quantities of the purg. water
that condenses from the evaporated artesian
water used at their saltworks onEebecca
street, Allegheny. A chemical analysis
shows this condensed water to be perfectly
pure. Messrs. Heenan and Brown, both
residents of Allegheny, who have just re
turned from Johnstown, report great quan
tities of filth being dumped into the river
there, and say that if the people conld see
these dumps they certainly would not drink
any river water.. Many families are secur
ing the pure water from Messrs. Haller,
Beck & Co. for drinking and cooking pur
poses. The firm is preparing a reservoir for
saving this condensed water, and' would be
glad to have all persons avail themselves of
it. It will be free to all for the'present. No
filtering needed. The water is clear as

The preliminary steps were taken for the
organization of :the Union Prohibitory
Xeague of Allegheny county. This
will be a branch of 'the Union
Prohibitory League of Pennsylvania, the
nucleus of which was fcVmed in Philadelphia
about the middle of May. The State constitu
tion was adopted with only such modifications
as were necessary to.make it a county instead
of a State organization.
POUND TO SECTJBE' PKOniDITIOIT.
The first paragraph cT this constitution says:
"We, the undersigned voters of Allegheny
county, associate ourselves together fo con
stitute the Union Prohibitory League of Alle
gheny County." Articlo II says: "Our object
is the suppression of the saloon. In order to do
this we unite to secure (1) the strict enforce
ment of tbe prohibitory measures of existing
laws relating to theliquor traffic; (2) tbe early
enactment of more stringent and prohibitory,
statutes, with adequate penalties; (3) the final'
adoption of constitutional prohibition for the
State and nation." Artidn 111 savx?
"VVe declare n.) That we owe primary alleglance
to God and humanity,' to our country and Com-
juuuneaiMi, anu wui noiu ail party amiiations
subordinate to these higher claims. (Z.) That,
retaining our personal liberty to cbooso our polit
ical associations as to us shall seem best, we pro-'
claim that we are.. and- will forever be free from
the dominion of the liquor power, and demand
that all political connection between the saloon
and the Sta'e, through whatever political party,
shall be forever totally dissolved.
OBJECTIOKS TO A THIED PAETTl
"There were no-real differences of opinion
among those present,'r.said Mr. Christy, "but'
it took some time' to explain all the objects of
the league. Some persons favor a third party
bnt that will not world I call your attention
particularly to section atticle III, of tho
Constitution. That is the kind of an organiza
tion we mnst haye. The great idea was to
keep all these persons belonging to different
parties, bnt who still favor prohibition, in line
with us. It's, no use to ask all of them
to join the Prohibition party. 'Why,'
says one, ;l am not going into a third
party. I'm' a Democrat, and I don't
favor female suffrage.' Another man says:
'I'm a Democrat; and I can't subscribe to all
the hobbies of a third party.' The f undametal
idea is to keep these many voters in such a
position that tney "will continue to vote for
prohibition, and yet not lose their personal
privileges and preferences In other ways. It Is
necessary to put tbe brakes on some fast trot
ETEETOIfE ON COMMITTEES.
In addition to the adoption of the State
League constitution,-there was a committee
appointed at the meeting consisting of Messrs.
A. C. Rankin, J). F. Magill, H. Samson, J. R.
Johnston and James M. Nevin, to draw np an
other platform. Messrs. John E. Shaw and L
N. Hays, as a .committee on organization,
will consult with the Committee on Platform.
It was also decided to call a mass meeting of
prohibition voters-to be held at Lafayette Hall
on July 11 at 10 a. m., It is not likely any
further action will be taken by the com-
mitiee until ine mass meeting is neia.
