naturalized. Bat I am afraid that it wasn't
the purpose of the act to be progressive.
From the language of the act, it looks to me
as though it is one like many others that
vere passed just about the time the United
- States Constitution was adopted. The idea
then was toallow every person who tired
in the country aud who wanted
to become a citizen to do so. It was some
thing like taking in charter members of
a lodge. There were not to be so many re
strictions nor any initiatory ceremonies. I
didn't nave any talk with Judge Stowe
about the matter, but it he says that there is
a qnestion as to the act being progressive,
then it is a serious question, as everyone
Inows what he is as a jurist. Should it be
found that the law was simply for the time
' being and not progressive, the effects will
be far reaching, and will certainly cause
many complications. I am extremely anx
ious to know what Judge Stowe's decision
will be. He timely marked the papers in
Brennan's case C. A. V., which means
that they are held for further advisement"
"You will have a long hunt before you
-' will find a lawyer who will criticise Jndge
Stowe," said another lawyer. "Jndge
Stowe is too good a lawyer1 and Jndge for
any man to qnestion his opinion."

The wholesale liquor dealers come up for
a hearing before Jndge Stowe yesterday on
f , their applications for license under the de-
fy cislon of the Supreme Court. The proceed-
nj ings were very rapid, the questions of law
kit raised, which are noted in what precedes this,
occupying but little time. There was a large
1 attendance of persons who were interested

? direct interest in the performance. The

The application of John Werner, a brewer of
Jefferson township, will be considered. Werner
is in a prohibitory district, and the question
was raised as to the propriety of granting bim
a license, which called attention to further dis
cussion. Jndge Stowe gave the applicants a
HTTNThope by saving that he would think aver

was present to appeal for the license asked by

no difficulty, and secured his license. John K.

was in the same boat. John Morns got
a bottlers' license, although his application was
somewhat obscure. Remonstrances had been
filed against Peter Aneu and Ellas Kauflcld,
but no one appearing to maintain them,
both got their licenses. In Kauneld's case.
Judge Stowe asked the applicant if he
bad sold to persons of intemperate habits and
to women, to which Kaufield replied he had
sot. Then Judge Stowe remarked: "No one
appearing to sustain the charges, the license is
granted. I think I have no right to even ask
the witness such a qnestion, and he Is not
bonnd to answer anything to criminate him

although they bad been filed, and the cases
were laid over.
The application of D. Lutz & Son. brewers,
of Allegheny, for licenses in Homestead, Har

grossed the attention of the Court for some
time. Judge Stowe remarked that be had not

than one license for the same business in one

John G. Walker, executor of estate of A. Blhl

disposed of during the day.
THAT WEST END DAM.
Temperaneevitte Citizens Instinct Prof. An
drew to Brine bull A Committee to
Ilnlse the Wind The City Attorney Will
The citizens of the West End met last night
in the Thirty-sixth ward schoolhouse to hear
the report of the committee appointed to con
sult with City Attorney Moreland relative to
entering suit against the owners of the dam at
the mouth of Sawmill run.
Mr. P. Foley presided, and Dr. Heely acted
as secretary. Prof. Samuelndrews. Chairman
of the committee who met Mr. Moreland last
Monday, reported the result of the Interview.
The facts of the disease-breeding state of af
fairs were laid before him, as well as the action
taken at the meeting of a week ago. Mr. More
land replied that he was fully conversant with
all the facts in the case, having visited the
neighborhood, and thought that the dam should
be removed. For the city to bring the neces
sary suit, however, be thought would be inju
dicious, as the city's sewers emptied into the
run. and were one source of complaint. He ad
vised that some reputable citizen who bad been
injured lodge an information against the
"Woods heirs, owners of the dam, charging
them with constructing and maintaining a nui
sance. He, on behalf of the city, would lend
his assistance in prosecuting the case.
When the committee's report bad been re
ceived, Mr. Ralph suggested that the matter
be left open for some one to volunteer to make
the information. O. P. Robertson, Esq, sup
plemented this by moving that Prof. Andrews
be appointed to bring the suit.
Chairman Foley interjected that before any
one was put forward the property holders of
the Thirty-sixth ward, all of whom were more
or less damaged, should arrange tu bear the ex
pense of the prosecution.
Upon motion of Dr. Neely. the same commit
tee that reported ni continned to canvass the
ward and devise ways and means of raising the
funds necessary to legal action, which was ac
cordingly done. Prof. Andrews then agreed to
bring suit, and will consult with Major More
land and lodge an information f orthwitn. The
case cannot reach trial before next September.

Tuts Winning Slnnta Seems to be Turning
Many Hends Suggestions Spring From
theblaugbler of Giants.
The most of us have read and relished Swift's
somewhat allegorical story of little Gulliver in
Brobdingnag of the lively though diminutive
traveler who could, almost unmolested, walk
upand down upon the prostrate forms of that
country's stupid thoucb stalwart giants, be
cause he possessed more concentration of force
and foresight withal than those men of mam
moth stature. A good proportion ot the sev
eral thousand spectators who richly enjoyed
at least eight and a half of the nine innings in
yesterday's baseball game at Recreation Park
must have been strikingly reminded ot Gulli
ver's giant-climbing act. For the eight and a
half innings aforesaid, the Welch giant of
Gotham and others from that region, were not
only climbed, but danced upon and pounded
and battered and rattled. Giants, with great
cndgels in their hands, pranced out and, meta
phorically, cried out:
"Who is this shepherd lad with his little
sllngr Bring him forth that I may make sport
ofblmin sight of the assembled armies ot
Fhilistlat Aha! bring forth this shepherd with
A swarthy and suple lad named Staley ap
peared in the dual role of Gulliver and David;
Buck Ewirg both as Chief Giant and Goliath,
with the Welch Qiant and. others to play as
second and third rate characters among the
army of the slain.
The reader of allegory and history, profane
and sacred, knows the rest, If he but carry out
the simile; or, if not, shall he not find it written
in the Chronicles of the Sportsf
What a game it was, to bo sure for eight
innings and a half! And what a game It was
not for that half I Still, the excellence of the
former so outweighed the going to pieces of
the latter that there was many a wild
Comanche yell when even such a glgantean
scalp as one with "5 to 2" tied to its foretop
dangled from the belt ot the noble chief of the
tribe of Allegheny. (There It goes Into another
simile Indian warfare that won't do.)
An entire coterie of Giants retired in rotation
on seven pitched balls once, and then, in the
sixth inning, three more stalwarts went down
together on only five balls pitched by Staley
one called ball and one strike. Wasn't that
glory enough for the Young man. for a single
day, even if be hadn't struck out Hatfield
Of course, the Allegheny chieftain (there it
goes tgaln. into mixed metaphor!) had noble
warriors out upon the plain to sustain him in
his brawny battle. And besides, there was
that supporting army of at least 100 extra um
pires on the right-field bleaching boards.
B'ltthe glory of downing the Giants was
Staley's. Not even that baby in the grand
stand, who, in the fourth inning, was hit by an
awfully hot foul tip and lived to squall, could
divide the honors with the man in the box; any
more than could Mickey Welch, who. with
more or less spiteful velocity in the fifth In
ning, sent a red-hot grounder feeling up
Staley's good right arm. without weakening it
a bit. The woman with the wreath of more or
less sweet violets In her hat. the bucking Kick
Ewicg, the scolding umpire, who drove Dun
lap back from the batter's line none of these
could detract from Staley's great glory.
Thus, it seems to be coming to pass that
Pittsburg has a renewal of the old and compli
cated complaint baseball on the brain: and
thus a suggestion or two occurs to one who has
felt a touch or two of the contagion:
Better enlarge the diamond. Better put
bleaching boards all around it. The grand
stand won't hold the people. This winning
epidemic seems to be continuous. Already the
privileges adjacent to Recreation park.com
mand a premium tor to-day's game. Adjacent
roofs and telegraph poles are all reserved.
Even those with barbed wire collars on them
command a premium. The reader can take the
bint or nt, as he pleases; but, if be doesn't,
about 5,000 to 7,000 others will.
FOE M0EE TITAN PERJDET.
Tbnt Is Why Squire Cassldy Held .Charles
McClnre to Ball.
The case of Charles McClure, who was sued
by Peter McGrath on two charges of perjury
and for assault and battery by Charles Rem
ington, was given a hearing last night before
Alderman Cassidy. The evidence brought to
light that McClure had sworn to a statement
to the effect that McGrath had sold him liquor
when he (McGrath) had no license, but failed
to prove it. McGrath then sued bim for the
above named offense, and on two charges.
The suit for assault and battery on Reming
ton grew nut ot the latter being one of the
witnesses in a case against McClure.
McClure was hela for court on the three
charges. He was also locked up, as he failed
to give 1,500 bail. 'Squire Cassldy stated that
before his trial comes up in court there will
veiy likely be GO or 70 other charges lodged
against McClure for various offenses against
Eeople all over the two cities. It is alleged that
e, with three others, has been entering suits
against people for selling liquor without
license, and others for selling on Unnday. The
four, it is said, would take turns
in entering suits, so as not to
created too ranch opposition. It is further
stated by the Alderman that one of the plans
of operation was to go about the cities as "rag
men," stopping at different houses and com
plaining of the bad water, thus securing beer
occasionally, for which pay was tendered; but
it is alleged that, whether the pay was taken or
not, they wonld threaten to sue.
A large crowd was at the examination, a
number of whose members, it is reported, were
among the victimized, or at least thought
A KEW BRIDGE PROJECT
For a New Street Knllrond Between Alle
gheny nnd Pittsburg.
The Rapid Transit Railway Company, under
the name of the Rapid Transit Bridge Com
pany, have advertised that they will apply for
a charter for a bridge over the Allegheny river
on July 6. The incorporators given are W. J.
Crawford, F. A. Rinebart, J. H. Dunks, F.J.
Tener and Robert Simpson. John H. .Dalzell
and J. D. Nicholson are also connected with the
company. The plan and route of the new line
were given in The Dispatch some time ago.
The company now propose to cross the Alle
gheny river at or near Craig street, on the Al
legheny side, and connect with Pittsburg via
Fourth street. The route on the Allegheny
street is over the old ronte of the Rapid
Transit Company, which was chartered some
time .ago by German residents and not built.
About a month ago the old company sold Its
rights to a new company, who now propose to
extend to Pittsburg by the route mentioned.
The company will have the new motor now
just patented by a New York man
which has a motor to each car, and each is con
trolled independently ot the other, or any con
duit or overhead wires. Several of the incor
porators seen last night would not open their
mouths on the subject of the new bridge or
the proposed ronte.but the facts as given above
were at last given authority from the mouth of
one of the Incorporators who would not allow
his name to be used.
DEAN UEANS BU8INESS.
He Has a Clew and He Feels QulteSnro of
Finding; the Lost Dora.
To-night the Dora Stepleln disappearance
case will probably show some new develop

say about the whole affair last night as he has
ever said, but he still insists he is as much In
the dark, as to the whereabouts of Dora as
"These detectives and constables," he stated,
"who boast all over town that they can put
their hands on the girl in an hour ought to
come btre and I will give them a warrant for
her at once."
However, Mr. Hartman will have an assistant
in the case to-night in the person of Superin
tendent Dean, of the Anti-Cruelty Society, and
if he acts as persistently as he said last night
he would, Dora will not be missing much
"X have been working on the case every day,"
said Mr. Dean, "and unless I am much mis
taken, I have a clew, which will bring fortn the
desired result. Mind you I am not going to
hare any monkey-business, the thing' has to
come out and I mean to find this girl. Itis
Suite likely that I shall make several informa
ons to-morrow night Immediately after the
investigation of the little girls bas been con
cluded, and I shall have some parties arrested
too. I can not give you my plans for publication
now, but It will all come out to-morrow night."

Thousands of Their Pictnresat the
Picnic in Boss GroYe.
A VERY SUCCESSFUL MULE RACE.
Lots of Fan and Mnch.Democracy Bunched
Alon? With Good Humor.
SCENES AND INCIDENTS GATHERED
The picnic of the County Democracy at
Boss' Grove yesterday was not a failure, if
numbers and enjoyment constitute the
criterion, the for
mer filling the
club's coffers and
the latter satisfying
-to the full the vis
itors. The attend
ance was close to
3,000, and it was
made up somewhat
by the Bepublican
party, the part of
J'rettdent D. J Boyte. it that makes a bus
iness of politics. "Whether or no the Be
publican aspirant for county office felt 1 com
fortable with the Democratic emblem the
rooster rampant on his coat lappel, he was
under the necessity of wearing it or running
the risk of being hauled up short by the
guards, as it was the receipt for gate fee.
There were many amusing Incidents during
the day, not the least of which was an exhibi
tion of six little Sennegamblans, who had evi
dently been posted by design along a row of
windows in the upper part of Allegheny City,
and, as a heavily-laden picnic train passed, put
THUMBS TO THEIR NOSES
and wagged their fingers. None was
over six years old, and one lit
tle seraph didn't look old enough
to talk. The Democrats on the train enjoyed
it, as a rule, better than its promoters had ex
pected, but here and there someone would
salute the young Imps rather discourteously.
The picnic was under the management of tho
following named gentlemen:

the next two heats, but Pegasus got the fourth
by a scratch and the fifth with considerable to

John L Sullivan exhibited his usual bibulous
propensities, and on three heats broke for a
speak-easy at one side of the course, so demor
alizing his rider that he reined up each time.
On the fourth John L. went up through the
woods after Klltain, and on the fifth, despair
ing of making a speak-easy, plunged into a
deep pool of water, wetting the jockey's feet
and leg to such an extent that he dismounted
in disgust. Kilrain took uniformly to the

work before the contest began by a five-mile

warm Sullivan's blood, but desisted after the

alighted on bis bead or on his left shoulder.

DASCE THE HIGHLAND FLING,
but the management explained that it was
solely fear that the midgets might get hurt, and
not fear of pecuniary damages, should the
platform give way, that caused refusal.
Alderman Cassidy was put out, and justly
too, for he had an important hearing set for 8
o'clock, and the 6.58 train went whizzing
through without stopping, and left him in the
Mr. Gilbert Rafferty chafed because Mr. J.
M. Guffy didn't show up. They were matched
to run a foot race fortl.000 a side.
There were all the diversions that are gen
erally found on picnic grounds, and they were
well patronized. Alderman atclnerny broke
all previous records as a heavy striker orr a
machine. Alderman Rodgers contented him
self as a looker-on. Some 'light-fingered
manipulators in the shell-game way were put
out, because the management would not allow
on the grounds. They again met on the rail
way, and succeeded In picking up a few stray
fives; but the crowd wasn't very gullible, and
allowed the cappers to win most of the money.
The crowd continued to be augmented by
each outgoing train until after 8 o'clock, and,
although the more sedate took the early trains
home, their departure did not seem to diminish
the attendance, and the affair was a success
financially and enjoyably. There was no ora
tory, the management concluding that it wasn't
necessary, and politicians were convinced that
a still bunt and a shake, of the hand were
worth more than impassioned appeal and the
ladles agTeed wi;h them.
One of the managers announced that the
pic-eating contest must be off, as the bare sug
gestion that Jimmie Dean was on the ground
drove all contestants away.
Proceedings after nightfall were maintained
at an equal pace with those of the day. The
crowd couldn't play baseball, bnt it conld
dance. Messrs. L. P. Ennls and Harry Beltz-'
hoover stated that as the friends of the club
had stood by it so handsomely yesterday an
other picnic would be given by and by and
guests would be given a free blow-out, the
grove to be free on the occasion, and all ar
rangements made as near perfect as possible.

THREE BODIES RECOVERED,
And Two SUI1 In the Ballom of the Creek
Searching; for the Mission; Arrange

The bodies ot three of the five persons lost
in the Connoquenessing creek on the Fourth
were recovered yesterday. Tbey were Miss
May Royal, Bert Freeman and tolas Fannie
McComb. The two flrt named were found in
the morning and brought down on the noon
train. Rough boxes were made on the spot
and they were taken to the undertaker's as
soon as the tram reached the city and prepared
for burial. Miss Royal's body was not cut or
bruised, but was very much swollen. Mr. Free
man was badly bruised about the head by com
ing in contact with the ragged edges of the
Shortly after noon Miss McComb's body was
found about six miles from the scene ot the ac
cident. It was brought down on the evening
train, which arrived shortly after 9 o'clock.
The body was at once taken to Fullerton's Un
dertaking establishment, embalmed and pre
pared for burial.
On the same train was Edward Shaffer, the
only survivor, and he was at once removed to
his home No. 7 Ackley street His condition is
rather serious, as he cannot keep the horrible
occurrence out of his memory, and the shock
may result-fatally. His physician does not al
low him to speak of the accident, and no person
Is allowed to see him.
Rev. W. F. Connor, of the Arch BtreetM. E.
Church, and his wife devoted the day and night
to visiting the afflicted families. The father
of Miss Royal is distracted, and was found
wandering almlesly about the city yesterday.
The parents of the othor lost ones refuse to be
consoled, and their grief canpot be described.
The sad accident has cast a gloom over the
entire Arch street congregation, and particu
larly the Young Fcople's Society, of which the
drowned persons were members.
Hosts of persons have volunteered their ser
vices in searching for the missing bodies.
Grapllng hooks are now being used, but the
worn Is slow and the recovery of the bodies
yesterday was almost accidental. Two expert
divers have agreed to go up to-day and search
the river if the bodies are not found. They
are Chief Collector George L Rudolph, oftbe
Internal Revenue office, and his brother. They
can see under water and can dive 18 feet. ,.
The creek has fallen four feet since the acci
dent and Is still falling. It is believed that the
other bodies will be recovered to-day.
Arrangements are now being made for the
funeral, which will occur in the new Arch
street church, which was dedicated last Sun
day. If possible, all the bodies will be brought
into the church. The remains of Mls Royal

thlsfeity beginning Tuesday. This will be the
twelfth annual convention of the American
Flint Glass Workers' Union, but the window
workers only meetwhen there is something Im

The flints' convention will be the largest ever
held, and the delegates will renresent a mem

be rerv encouraging, and will show a decrease
of the indebtedness due tu the great lockout
last year and also a big surplus in the treasury.
The Insurance feature will be considered
during the session, borne additional clerical
work will be required if it is adopted. Many
of the locals seem to favor the plan as pro

are less than 100 non-union men.
Many of the delegates to the convention ar

Doctors Will Investigate Causes of Sickness
Dr. H. C. Formad. Professor of Chemistry in
the University of Pennsylvania, is at the Sev
enth Avenue HoteL Ths Professor has been
called by General Hastings to investigate the
causes of a choloroid epidemic prevailing in
Johnstown. He states that the symptoms are
very much like the cholera, and-from what he
can understand the disease Is on the increase.
The Adjutant General is the latest added to
the list of victims.
Dr. Formad will be assisted by Drs. Wood
and Kirby, of Philadelphia, and he expects
some ot the Pittsburg physicians will accom
pany him. He will make a chemical and
microscopical examination of the water and
food, and a thorough investigation into all the
phases of the complaint
The writer has been in Johnstown more or
less since the flood, aud knows that such a dis
ease is quite common among the workmen, and
It is beginning to attack the officers at head
quarters. It can hardly be in the food, for the
latter lire much better than the former. The
workmen complain that the water pipes are
broken in a number of places, and that the
water is frequently discolored with material
from the devastated territory. It Is more than
probable that the doctors will find this one of
the causes of the trouble.
GOING TO BALTIMORE.
Whatever Profit Olny Attach to Johnstown
Work Gets Away.
Tbo contract for the remainder of the Johns
town work was yesterday awarded to a Balti
more firm by tho State Commission,
and caused some of the Pittsburg com
petitors to speak .of the injustice
of the award. Mr. S. S. Marvin and
Chairman McCreery had been at Johnstown
Thursday. It was thought they would know
something concerning the contract Mr. Mar
vin was accordingly called on last night He
"Wo had nothing to do with the giving of the
work, nor did I know it had been given to a
Baltimore firm until you informed me. I cer
tainly think there are enough contractors in
this State, or even in Pittsburg, to choose
from. There is no excuse for the State Com
mission giving the contract to a Baltimore
Arm. Pittsburg was certainly entitled to the
contract, or, at least, some other city in Penn
sylvania." He said, further, that an injustice had thus
been done the people of this State who con
tributed so liberally to the sufferers of the
Johnstown disaster. He denied emphatically
that be or Mr. McCreery had anything to do
with the letting ot the contract

The late James Kelly's residence in Wllkins

'The building was erected in 1791 by a planter
from West Virginia, who came to Wilkinsburg
and started a plantation. He had a number of
slaves, who lived all around the plantation.
The house was a large stone building, the ma
terial being heavy boulders taken from the
creek near by. From this planter tbo property
came into the bands of Mrs. McNalr, aud then
Mr. Kelly got bold of the house. He lived

'SATimDAY, TOIiY 6,
TO A 60-FODT STKEET.
California Avenue May be Widened,
THE PROTESTS OF BUSINESS MEN.N
1 Lively Session of the Allegheny- Council
THE MATTER MAI GO TO THE COURT
The Allegheny Survey Committee held a
special session last night to consider the
ordinance for the widening of California
avenue from Strawberry lane to Jack's run.
During the afternoon the committee had
gone over the thoroughfare and examined
carefully as to the merits oi the proposed
improvement Several'promL:ent citizens
and business men who reside in the lower
end of the city were present at the meeting
last evening, some to oppose and some to
favor the project "W. A. Holman, Esq.,
and Mr. Kerr, cf the law firm of Bakewell
& Kerr, represented some of the property
owners. Messrs. James I. Bennett, David
B. Oliver, John D. Bailey and others were
At a previous meeting of the committee it
was decided to make the street CO feet wide,
but this was not satisfactory to some of the
Mr. Holman vigorously opposed any change
in the width of the street, and intimated that if
any was made his clients would take the mat
ter into th o courts. Mr. Ball ey also opposed it
Mr. Oliver was in favor of a 60-foot street, as
it would give an opening to that section of the
city and would greatly enhance the value of
property out that way. Mr. Bennett was at
first opposed to a 60-foot street; but, after being
on the scene with a committee, be had arrived
at the conclusion that a 60 foot street
WAS A NECESSITY.
There was Quite a little smr of words be
tween the citizens, Messrs. Holman and
Bailey intimating that it was a scheme to es
tablish a boulevard for the pleasure of a few
citizens who were the owners of fast horses.
The committee reconsidered its former action
of a 60-foot street and passed a motion that
California avenue be made a 60-foot streetfrom
Strawberry lane to Jack's Run, the engineer's
report on the same being adopted.
A Dispatch reporter yesterday made a tour
ot the business men and property owners in
that section of the city to ascertain their views
on the subject The business men on McClure
avenue say that should the proposed street go
through and open up the territory back
of Wood's Run that all the
trade of those people who now
go lo Woods' Run will then be diverted to
Pittsburg and leave them out in the cold. Mr.
T. T. Dimming, a property holder onMcClnre
avenue where the viaduct will pass over the
street said that the whole thing was engi
neered bv David O Oliver, of the Arm of Oliver
Bros. t Phillips, who has land that he wants to
open up. He said that Select- Councilman Mc
Afee was in the employment of the firm of
Oliver Bros. & Phillips as manager or one ot
tbelr departments, and did what Mr. David B.
Oliver said. A Mr. Jones has also been work
ing up the extension scbeme among the prop
erty holders, it is said, in Mr. Oliver's Interests.
Mr. Dumming's property is near where the
viaduct crosses and he says Jones toldhim that
he could not get any damages, and he thought
that while it would benefit one portion it would
demoralize McClure avenue, and thought that
part should be considered.
Dr. Scheffer said he bad noticed that what
ever was done, McAfee and Councilman Hart
man and John Rr-Hendrlcks, the two latter of
the Ninth and Eleventh wards, respectively,
all pulled together so that they bad things their
QUITE A XTNAlfnilTY.
A number of the other property holders along
McClure avenue were Interviewed and gave
similar expressions, and the business men all
thought it would demoralize the trade of the
avenue. Some property holders near where
the viaduct will cross, intimated that their cup
of grief could be swallowed if tbey received
enough damages, and -that they would fight for
Mr. James J. Bennett, a citizen of Superior,
objects to the route of the extenslon.as be says
that much of it represents the entire posessions
of many bard-working men, who bad saved and
scraped along to build their homes, and that it
would in many cases ruin a whole or part of
them, and he wanted justice done them.
On the other band, the majority of the large
property holders in the direction of Bellevue
are anxious to see the "ordinance go through.
Mr. David B. Oliver was seen yesterday by the
reporter and told of the objections to the ex
tension made by some, and the charge that it
was a real estate scheme, and in reply gave a
clear exposition of the proposed route and
answer to the objections as follows:
"There are hundreds of acres lying in tbe
Tenth and Eleventh wards of Allegheny City
that for residence purposes are now included
in everything that go to make desirable and
healthy resllent situations. The soil is
splendid, water pure and with first-class
views of the Ohio river and val
ley. Almost the only practical inlets to this
section consist of the New Brighton turnpike
and the Perrysville road, which run parallel
to each other at a distance ot from a mile to a
mile and a half apart The outlets are totally
insufficient to develop these hills and valleys,
as is abundantly proved by the low
prices at which property is sold. I have
been a resident here now for nearly
20 years, and have always deplored Its
inaccessibility and consequent want of de
velopment, and an effort bas recently been
made. In which I have taken an active part, to
extend California avenue, which starts at
Sedgwick street near Its junction, with Wash
ington avenue, and ends at Superior avenue.
We propose to extend It from Superior avenue,
near Superior station, on the Fort Wayne
road, directly along the crest of the hill,
SPANNING THE VAI.LET
and McClure avenue at Wood's Run by a
viaduct 600 feet long, keeping along tbe hills
and descending the slope into Jack's Run
and going into Bellevue and through there to
West Bellevue. I consider that tbe com
pletion of the project will bring
Into the market si very large tract of ter
ritory that is now practically inaccessible,
and the laying of a traction or electric road,
one of which I have no doubt will be done,
will prevent our people rushing to the East
End and soon cover our bills with beautiful
homes bills now largely covered with tbe
primeval forests, or seed for market garden
"Theviadu.i oyer McClure avenue Is pro
posed to be built by the Ohio Connecting Rail
way Company in return for the vacation of the
crossing of the Leckey road over its proposed
roadway and that of tbe Pittsburg and Ft
Wayne road, and for the right to cross Preble
and McClure avenues and the Leckey road at
a height of 10 to 20 feet from tbe street level.
I consider this a most advantageous proposi
tion to property holders interested, and one In
which I have no doubt McClure avenue will
"What have yon to say about the complaints
of the people ou McClure avenue in regard to
its taking trade away!" was asked.
"Well, I have no doubt It will. Imet with tbe
same opposition years ago from the very same
class of men, and some of the same men, in my
efforts to have the street car lines extend down
Preble and McClnre avenues. They insisted
that with such means of getting to and from
tbe city people would go to town to do tbeir
trading, and tbe event proved that I was right
and tbey wrong: and I believe the tame result
will be shown after tbe extension ot California
avenue is completed. The more people come
In the more will want to be supplied. We
CAK'Z HOLD SACK THE WOBE
of improving such a large region merely to
comply with the crude ideas of a few selfish
people on McClnre avenue."
"What have you to say about Its being a
speculative .scheme on your part?" was asked
by tbe reporter.
"I have no interest In any manner or form
with any speculative scheme. What property
I have here I have owned tor many years past
If outside parties have come in and made pur
chases of our phenomenally cheap land that is
no just reason or cause why -such a desire
should be impeded.
"Mr. A. C. Patterson, a prominent man, who
owns some land in Superior, told me just the
other day that be bad drawn no the deeds for a
lot In the East End, 23x100 feet, for 2,000, and
he would be willing to sell much more desir
able lots In Superior for less than $500 just
because tbey are inaccessible."

for Coneerolsg Representation aa tho
Reorganized Canary Cosssstttse.
A meeting suggestive of Bpubliaa har
mony in the fall campaign was held last
evening in the Allegheny Republican Club
rooms. John N. Neeb, of the First Legis
lative district, and Mr. Bradley, of the
Second called it informally, and. tha-re-sponslve
gathering was made-up of Bepub
lican workers of all the shades recognised
within the party lines. None but Bepub
lican workers of the two legislative district,
composing the city of Allegheny partici
pated, and a disposition was manilested to
forget the factional differences of the lata
primaries, or at least to apply salve to any
sores that may be left over from that time.
At the recent meeting, of the County
Committee a sub-committee was appointed
to select county committeemen lrom eaek
election precinct. Last night's meeting
was intended as a sort of Bepublican fam
ily gathering for the purpose of hanaonii
ing, preliminary to the selections that may
be made by the sub-commtttee, any differ--ences
of opinion that may exist concerning;
Allegheny City's representation on the reor
ganized County Committee. For the most
part an accommodating spirit prevailed, and
though two names are on the list from soma
districts, as it is now ' made out, it is ex
pected that before the meeting of the sub
committee to-morrow afternoon one name
from each district will have been mutually
