THE PITTSBURG- DISPATCH, v MONDAY, JOLT 8, 188ft
A SOLEMN SERYICE.
The Funerals of Fannie McComb and
Burt Freeman Yesterday.
MANY PKETTY FLORAL TRIBUTES.
KeT. TV. F. Conner Preaches on the Sad
Fourth of July Accident
TWO OF THE BODIES STILL UKFOUKD
The new Arch Street M. E. Church, in
Allegheny, was crowded at the morning
service, and; seVeral hundred people
were unable to gain admittance. It
was thought that the pastor, Iter. W. P.
Conner, would preach on the drowning of
five members of the congregation on the
Fourth, but he only referred to it. He con
trasted the happy meeting a week ago when
the church was dedicated and the
gloom that was cast over the
anuience yesterday. His text was
Phillipians li., 5. In referring to the sad
accident he spoke of how uncertain onr
best joys are, and said: "in great crises ot
life we needed to go to the best model to
study His conduct and behavior, to see how
He deported himself in the midst
of a great trial, and we found
iu Jesus the only satisfactory
exemplar. A model in humanity, a model
in patriotism and especially a model in His
resignation to the will of Gog; no repining
or fighting against what seemed to be hard
and cruel fate. His spirit was shown in
the Gethsemane prayer, 'Tby Will Be
Donel' He heard the multitude sound his
praise one day and the next day cry,
'crucify him. "
A VERY SAD CONTBAST.
The speaker then contrasted the meeting
last Sunday and yesterday, and said in his
knowledge he did not know of a church
that could show such a contrast as this. In
speaking of the accident, he said
the Lord does not interfere with
natural law and takes no account of igno
rance or thoughtlessness on the part of any
one whether it was His people or not. It
happened this time that an accident due to
natural law fell upon the best of God's
At the close of the services the pastor an
nounced that Sunday school services would
not be held in tne afternoon, in order to give
the members an opportunity to attend the
lunernls of Bnrt Freeman, a member of the
choir, and Fannie McComb, a leading
worker in the Young People's Union.
The funeral services over the remains of
Mr. Freeman were held in the Fifth U. P.
Church, on Irwin avenue, and never before
in the history of the churcn was such a large
assembly congregated there. The services
were announced to commence at 3 o'clock
in the afternoon, but as early as 2 o'clock
A VAST PKOCESSION
of people lined the streets toward the
church! and long before the hour of service
the auditorium was overcrowded to such an
extent tbat chairs had to be called into
Soon atterward, however, the party of
mourners arrived. Eight pall-bearers at
tended the coffin of the young man, and a
large quantity of suitable decorations and
floral tributes was carried behind the re
mains. The coffin, being placed in front of
the altar, the flowers were deposited on its
lid, hiding the casket entirely from view.
Aiter the choir bad sung an appropriate
hymn, the lie v. Dr. J. W. Witherspoon
rend several extracts from the Scripture
bearing upon the occasion. Then he com
menced his address, and dwelt upon the
shortness and uncertainty of life, saving:
Tbis yonng man was a true and industrious
member of our church. No duty was too bard
for blm. He was ever ready to devote bis time
and enenrr tn his fellow church member 'and
to tbe babbath school. Yet here he is! The
ways of the Lord are very mysterious; but yet
they are not accidental. He has come into tbe
community and taken away a good many of
our dearest friends and brothers lately;
but still there Is one hope we sball see
them again. One thine, my dear friends, you
must not forget : e who loot upon tbe pale
face of death as pictured In the features of
this corpse, must not think that tbis is tbe last
time we sball fee him. No I There will be a
time when we sball all meet him again in tbe
glory of salvation and the life everlasting.
It is a sorrowful thing for tbe friends of this
young uan to lose him so soon, in the
very spring of bis manhood. It is a heartrend
ing grief for he father; but I pity the mother
i most of all. She, poor lady, is too sadly affected
to know what she has lost. Just imagine a
mother unable torealize the loss of ber own
dear boy. tbe flower of her loving heart and
the pride of ber motherly love. She is truly to
to be pitied.
Then the reverend gentleman drew illus
trations and comparisons from the Bible,
proving that tbe' Lord is merciful and will
not let one soul be lost that is repentant.
He cited the cae of the young man at Nain,
Mho was called from his coffin by Jesus
Ciirist, and the case of Lazarus, as well as
others. He concluded by requesting all the
members of the church to take an example
by this case as to how quickly death might
IT WAS MOST IMPBESSIVE.
The words of the preacher made a very
deep impression upon the audience, and
among the ladies there were few eyes that
did not show signs of tears and sympathy
for the sorely bereaved family.
A large number of carriages were stand
ing in the front of the church, and the
burial of the young man was attended by
many of his friends and acquaintances.
The funeral services at the former home
ot Miss Fannie McComb on Clifton avenue
were very impressive. Many of her friends
crowded "the house, the yard surrounding it
and the avenue. Rev. Dr. Conner con
ducted the services, and paid a glowing
tribute to tbe dead. Althoughquitc young,
she was an active worker in the church, and
it will be difficult to fill her place. Before
her death she bad entered heartily in the
work ot raising money to wipe out the
church debt, and was a most valuable mem
ber of the Young People's Union.
The body was encased in a neat casket
covered with floral tributes. The Young
People's Union sent a beautiful piece a
broken circle. At the close of the service
tbe body was interred in Bellevue Ceme
tery. Although over 200 men were at work
searching for the missing bodies,. Misses
Burton and Cassiday, neither were recovered
atthe last reports received yesterday.
QDAI IS A SUNDAY TKATELEE.
He Goes East While the Reporters Are
Senator Quay slipped through Pittsburg
yesterday morning on his way East The
trainmen about the depot have noticed the
Beaver man doing the same act for the past
three weeks. This is the only morning in
the week when no reporters prowl about the
Etation, but the boys go to church like
other people. The depot men think the
Senator has discovered this fart, and this is
why he leaves the quiet of his home and
travels on Snndav.
Spenk-Easles tbe Cause.
The Police Inspector of the Twelfth ward
police station states that there are now
more arrests of men charged with being
drunk than there were before the last
License Court hearings. He attributes this
to the numerous spcak-easies.
Wreck at Sane Hollow.
An engine ran into a train of five cabooses
at Eang Hollow yesterday afternoon. 2Jo

Philadelphia Councilmen Examine Under
A number of Philadelphia Councilmen,
accompanied by their wives, spent Sunday
in Pittsburg. They occupied two Pullman
cars, and are combining business with
pleasure. Captain Thornton wanted the
reporters to understand it was
not a junketing party, and they,
are paying their own expenses. The
Councilmen are gathering information
on the subject of underground wires, and
while here will visit the works of the Stand
ard Underground Cable Company. The
question of putting the wires under ground
will come up next fall. Mr. Anderson
statol that the Bell Telephone Company
was willing to do it, and so is the "Western
Union. He noticed that Pittsburg had
Elenty of wires overhead, and he wondered
ow long the people would tolerate the nuis
ance. The entire party took a drive through the
East End. lhey were pleased with many
of the grounds and homes, but thev think
the streets of Pittsburg are miserable, and
on this point Pittsburgers will agree with
In the party were P. Monroe and wife,
Frank Schang and wife, Dr. "William Mof

WILL EETAILERS APPEAL?
Vngue and .Somewhat Indefinite Replies
Dropped by Two Lawyen.
Josiah Cohen, Esq., when met on the
street Saturday afternoon, was asked by a
reporter: "Is there any hope that the retail
liquor dealers, if they appeal on all tech
nical ground's to the Supreme Court, may
He said: "I hope so," and his manner
intimated that he thought the construction
of the Brooks law more especially by the
Judges of tbe License Courts in Allegheny
and Philadelphia counties might be still
Another lawyer, wbohad for clients many
appicants, said: "The Brooks law requires
a man to have a good moral character.
When it becomes a crime to be a member of
Councils, let us have law for it. Ex-convicts,
convicted of the most infamous crimes,
are running saloons here, and four men
whose moral character is too high above re
proach to be assailed have been knocked
out. Will the Supreme Court, if a stated
case be presented to them covering these
facts, give us the justice denied by the lower
courts in the counties I have mentioned? I
HOW TBE BOIEE WAS DECEIVED.
KTore About That Systematic Hobbcry of a
William Wolkowsky, the Wylie avenue
clothier who bought the 39 boys' suits for
(90 from Isador Fox, who had stolen them
from Kaufmanns', makes a statement that
shows how innocent he was in the matter,
and how he sought to detect the derelict
salesman in his crooked sajc M. Wolkow
sky did not sell 4 of the 39 suits before the
check was drawn, for he had drawn and de
livered it on Thursday evening; but stopped
payment on it at the City Savings Bank
Friday morning, having satisfied himself
that Fox, alias Fleck, was not dealing
Moreover, Mr. Wolkowsky did not sell
the four suits at all. He had only left
them for inspection at his cousin's place,
adjoining, and, when Mr. Kaufmann called
fqr the 39 suits on Saturday, the four that
had been left outside could not be gotten
until sunset, the close of the Jewish Sab
bath, when tbe store was opened next door.
Then they were secured and delivered. The
transaction was all conducted on Thursday
at the hotel, not Friday, as was at first
stated, and that fact enabled Fox, by the
aid of the holiday, to cover up some of the
sources of detection.
EEADI FOE THE TODE,
Captain Skinner Thinks the Orphan Schools
Should be Closed.
Captain Skinner and C. C. Kaufman,
members of the Orphan School Commission,
arrived in the city last evening. Theyj left
Beaver at Huntingdon, who remained over
for the day to attend a Presbyterian blow
out. The Governor is expeeted this morn
ing, when the commission will probably
make a break for Butler.
Speaking of the work of the commission.
Captain Skinner said last night, "I would
like to see tbe Orphan schoolsclosed out as,
soon as possible, and when the act was
passed establishing the commission I ad
vocated such a policy. I think if the State
had given the children the money now paid
to educate them, the half of them would
have accepted it, rnd they conld hae been
trained at home. It was a great mistake
not to buy out the buildings."
Captain Skinner spent four hours in
Johnstown. He says tbe people are dis
satisfied because the local contractors were
ignored and the work was given to people
outside of the State. They feel that politics
is having too much to do with the conduct
A COMMITTEE MEETING.
The Methodists Are Rendy to Distribute
Their Flood Money.
Dr. Smith, of the Christian Advocate,
went East last eveningto attend a committee
meeting in New York to distribute a special
fund among the Johnstown sufferers of tbe
Methodist Church. About $3,000 was col
lected in Pittsburg. The Doctor could not
state how much bad been 'contributed, but
he felt pretty positive tbat none of the dol
lars would get into the clntches of the State
Bishops Foss and Andrews, Drs. Buck
ley, Mains and Smith make up the commit

It was Harry, the son of Edwin Pease,
and not William Teese, who was alleged to
be responsible for the explbsion of natural
gas on Thirty-ninth street, as reported Sat
urday. Mr. Pease says his son was not
firing crackers at the time the accident oc
curred, but it he had been the Philadelphia
Company were responsible, as they shonld
not have any leaks in their pipes. He pro
poses to investigate the matter.

THE EELIGIOUS SERVICES 1 ESTEEM!
A colored caap meeting was held yester
day in McKee's Grove, at Wilkinsbnrg, for
he benefit of the Morrcll Methodist Episco
pal Mission, on Market street, Allegheny.
The services were opened at 3 P. M. with a
sermon by Rev. H. C. Core (white), of the
Wilkinsburg Methodist Episcopal Church.
He took his text from First Corinthians,
third chapter, ninth verse :' "We are labor
ers together with God." He commenced
his discourse by analyzing the hnman
hand, and said it was given man to work
A person may be blind, yet he can learn
to do the most difficult work: with
his hands; but without them he can
do nothing. A man is in his element when his
mind and hands are employed, but sentence
that man, to solitary imprisonment without em
ployment and life to him is a torment. Man
will continue to work even after be has accu
mulated millions of dollars. He knows tbat
he can never use it or keep it, nor can he count
it. But his desire to increase tbe amount by
work is Just as great as ever. Why Is this?
He is doing nothing but obeying tne law
of God, for God bath commanded men to con
quer and reign over tho earth. Man is con
quering the world fast. He has gone into tbe
bowels of the earth and brought therefrom
thousands of useful articles, without which tbe
world could not now subsist. He has gone
INTO THE HEAVENS
and laid his bands on the lightning and used it
to write letters across the seas. There is noth
ing else that will satisfy this desire for wore
There is no release from it. The hand and
brain tbat have been active must continue
active until tbe end of life. Tbis desire to
work would not be possessed if God had not
commanded the people to make themselves
At 8 o'clock a union service was held. It
was conducted by Rev. G. W. W. Jenkins,
pastor of the Morrell Mission Church; Rev.
G. R. Haikins, of Maryland, the "Son of
Thunder," and Rev. A. Jackson, who
preached from Isaiah xxiv., 9. His address
was attentively listened to. A choir of 16
voices rendered satisfactorily the singing.
There were three stands erected for the
purpose of supplying the hungry with re
freshments. There was also one stand
outside the grove which was adorned with
the following sign:
: All kinds ot
Refreshments Served Here. :
: Ham and Fkied Chicken. :
: Ice cold drinks of different kinds. :
NOT AFBAID OF L. & O.
Rev. Mr. Jenkins was asked if they were
not in awe of the courts and the Law and
Order League since the decision of the Su
preme Court, which has even made it
unlawful to charge an admission fee to
camp grounds on Sunday. He did not
think thev would be prosecuted, he said, as
the meetings are being held for a good
About 1,500 people were present, one
fourth of whom were white. There was also
a large number of vehicles in the grove.
The best of order prevailed, no disturbance
of any kind taking place at any time in the
day or evening.
The meeting netted quite a neat amount
of cash, which will be used to help pay off
the debt of the church. A meeting will
also be. held next Sunday, and it is the in
tention of tbe management to have Francis
Murphy and several other people of note
make addresses, if possible. No morning
service was held yesterday, as was the
original purpose, oc account of there not
being a sufficient number of people present
to warrant preaching. Two special trains
6i six cars each conveyed the attendants to
and from the ground.
A FAEEhTS DDTT.
Ber. J. W. Spronll Preaches a Sermon on
Rev. J. W. Sproull, D. D., of the Central
Reformed Presbyterian Church, Allegheny,
preached an interesting sermon yesterday
afternoon on "Baptism." He spoke ot
the responsibilities of parents on
baptism and the consequences-afterword.
The child is recognized as God's child after
baptism, he said, and patents should allow
God to do what he pleases with it. "The
parents," he said, "should keep constantly
before the mind of the child that the high
est aim in life .should be to please God.
They should choose their companions and
provide for their amusement. This should
be done when the child is very young.
Some parents make great mistakes. They
should study the temper, habits, disposition
and faults of the child, so that its best inter
ests may be promoted, and this must be
doLe early in life."
He spoke of seeing wagonloads of people
and kegs of beer going out of tbe city while
he was on his way to church in themornintr.
There were parents accompanied by their
children, and they permitted them to drink,
and they ought to suffer the consequences,
and he believes God will hold them re
sponsible. TEE FOUNTAIN OF LIFE
And Some City Fountains Form a Text In a
"If any man thirst let him come unto Me
and drink," was" the text chosen by the Rev.
C. E. Locke last night for his sermon in the
Smithfield Street M. E. Church. "Every
innovation, "the reverend gentleman com
menced, "whether philanthropic, bene
ficial or utilitarian, has always had to bat
tle with a great deal of objection before it
became successful. It was so wiih the
Christian religion, and it is so with every
"In the spiritual as well as in the physi
cal realm a thirst is natural. The spirit of
man thirsts for God. The world wants
water. The fields, the flowers and the woods.
can only be attractive when they get the
necessary quantity of water to refresh them,
to make them grow and live.
"We have-placed a fountain in the front
of our church, for everybody to come r.nd
drink, and all are welcome. It is a symbol
of the fountain of everlasting life, and I
think that the city of Pittsburg needs a good
many fountains like it"
An Orange League Sermon.
Rev. M. D. Lichliter, of the Carson Street
M. E. Church, Sonthside, preached yester
day afternoon to tbe Loyal Orange League,
by request of Birmingham Wycliffe Lodge
No. 74. The pastor was assisted by Rev.
W. Medley, Grand Chaplain of the oraer.
There was a large and interested congrega
tion. Received Into the Sodality.
There was a very pleasant service at the
Cathedral last evening, attendant upon the
reception, into the Sodality of the Immacu
late Conception, of 50 young ladies. The
service was preceded by appropriate and
eloquent sermon from Rev. Dr. McDonald,
and followed by the solemn benediction.

At a late hour Saturday night "W m. Hen
derson hit the bartender of Max Schneider's
saloon, on Federal street, Allegheny, in the
eye. Henderson was thrown out, and
Officer Bothwell, who was passing, dressed
in citizen's clothes, attempted to arrest
him. James Gow thought the officer
was Henderson's friend, and jumped on
him. Officer Blank came up and arrested
Henderson, and then Bothwell tried to
arrest Gow. The latter refused to be ar

the street until Captain Wilson came along,
when Gow gave up and said he was sorry,
