A C0UNCILMANIC SURVEY IS MADE, And the Host Marreloas Municipal Water shed Discussed. BEWEES MAT CATE, CAUSING FLOODS Yesterday afternoon an important inspec tion of the Spring Garden district vrai made by the Allegheny Councilmanio Committee on Streets and Sewers. The memory of the awful flood several years ago in that region makes any movement for improvement there of interest to everyone. The expedition yes terday was for the purpose of deciding on a proper method of carrying away tie large volumes of water which inundate that dis trict so frequently. Councilmen J. P. Ober, Charles "W. Neebe, Charles H. Hartman, Robert McAfee, J. H. Smith, Charles A. Mnehbronner, Anton Roehlhlein, Henry Stockman, J. R. Wolfe and City Engineer Ehlers left City Hall at 2:30 r. M. on the mission. Concord, Madison, Chestnnt, O'Hara, Center and "Vinal streets and also Spring Garden avenne and Church alley were vis ited. These streets are all very peculiar, geographically, forming really a naif circle; that is by being high at both ends and having a Tall of several feet In the center, thns giving the water no chance whatever to ran off. Tho corner of Center and Vinal streets and Spring Garden avenue Is the worst part of the dis trict. It is there that the water accumulates In its greatest volume, causing it to be known as the basin." DANGEBOUS HEIGHTS A3fD DEPTHS. To give an idea of the formation of the terri tory for the streets of that section as to their elevation and grade. It might be mentioned that Basin street stands 67 feet above "city datum," and Hill street is only CO feet, or 17 feet lower. In the case of Spring Garden ave sue to Center street there is a fall of 24 feet. At No. 16 Spring Garden avenue a sign has been placed on the wall about 12 feet above the street, stating that that mark was the depth the water attained on July 26, 1871, when nearly 200 lives were lost. Several plans were talked over by the com mittee. One that for a time seemed to meet the favor of all was to raise Church alley. Spring Garden avenue, Williams, Ohio, Con cord, Madison, Chestnut and O'Hara streets several feet, but as this would cause property to be damaged to the extent of from 200,000 to 300,000, it was decided to remedy the evil in some other way. After much discussion it was decided to recommend to the Street Commis sion the need of AS OVEX "WATER "WAY or street. In this case it would only be used to carry off the surplus water which could not be carried off through the old sewer. It was also decided that the new water way would not be erected according to the old plan, but would follow the old water course of Spring Garden run. By doing so it would go under the follow ing named streets: Perry, Ohio and Main streets and River avenue, and pass by the cor ner of William street. It will also go under the West Penn Railroad and the Pittsburg and Western Railroad. It will in this way follow Church alley a considerable distance. It was also suggested to widen the came alley to make the water way more complete, bnt this did not meet with the approval of all the committee. If the above plan is followed oat the two water ways, one coming from the East street-car sta bios aod the other from the Spring Garden avenue car stables, will meet at the corner of Center street and Spring Garden avenue. Should the improvement be made it will give thn Allegheny public much satisfaction, as safety basieen wanted by Allegheny people ever since the Butchers' run flood in 1871. BIG SEWEBS CAVIJfG IK. Of the two sewers that are now used one was completed in 1S73, just before the flood. The other was not completed nntil one year after. These sewers are 6 feet in diameter at their be ginning and Byi feet at the mouth. They were not big enough to carry off all the water, and, as a natural consequence, the sewers could not carry oif all the water that collected around them. As they are all located in the hollow or fall in tbe street, the water had no chance to run off in tho gutters. City Engineer Ehlers stated to the commit teemen that it was his opinion that the old sewers would cave in some day, as they are now positively flat on the top. In fact, he expected to hear of it after every heavy rain. Should the waterway be made it will a'so be necessary to fill in several streets. It will be about 12 feet in diameter and will probably cost about $100,000. The Street Committee also viewed the hill side on Spring Garden road, which is cracked and threatens to fall or slide at any moment. Something will be done concerning it. FISHING FOR A CANDIDATE. Outhtvalte Think ForakerWIU be Knocked Sky IUcb. Congressman Outhwaite and family, of Co lumbus, passed through the city last night, bound for the Jersey coast to spend the sum mer. In a short chat about Ohio politics, be said: "The Democratic candidate for Governor will either be Campbell or Neel, of Cincinnati, The honors are equally divided between them, bnt Cline. of Cleveland, is a strong third. If either of these men are put up we can beat Foraker. It cannot be denied that there is a wide breach between tbe For aker and Sherman people. It cannot be healed up to give victory to the party. Usually after a victorious national campaign tbe chances of winning belong to the opposite garty, and we have great hopes of carrying the tate. The fight will be made on a home-rule and tariff-reform platform. The cities in tbe State are now governed by commissioners ap pointed by the Governor, and tbe people don't like It. They want to rule themselves." ONLY A PROTECTIVE FLAN. Why Application Is Made far a New Ball way Cbnrter. The Pittsbure and Wllkinsburg Railway Company will apply to the Governor August 1, for a charter for the privilege of operating either an electric or a cable road between the East End and Wilkinsburg. It was reported that the Citizens' Traction Company had secured the right of way from tbe city over four years ago to operate a street car line or other passenger conveyance over the same route, and would therefore oppose the granting of the charter. Mr. Murray Verner was seen concerning the report, and said: We never applied to toe citT for a right of way for a street car line to Wllkinsburg. "Tho application which is to be made is prob ably that of the company who recently laid street car tracks between those two points, and are now applying for a charter Under the new law, that they may be well protected." TEE HI IN TROUBLE. Til Celestial Simplicity All Tangled Up In SlUalnc Shirt. Tee Hi, a Chinese lanndryman, who does business on Carson, near South Twenty-second street, was arrested last night en a warrant issed by Alderman Flach charging him with larceny by bailee. Mrs. Thresa Kampmeyer is the prosecutrix, and she alleges that the do- fendent retained a number of shirts she bad given him to wash, and refuses to give them up. Yee Hi furnished bail for a hearing this evening. Not Very Well Known. A moraine paper yesterday published a state ment alleged to have been made by a prisoner in the Camden City jail, tbat his name was V. C Ginther. and that he was about to die and wanted his body sent to the family residence, 1315 Carson street, Southside. People living at tbat number and in tbe vicinity say they know no such person. INCIDENTS OP RAPIDITY. A Grlpman Telia Bow Jerks May be Avoided Two Line Compared Sixteen Miles aa Door Talked of la Enit End. For some time past there has been complaint made by the patrons of tbe Citizens' Traction Company as to the manner In which cars are started and stopped. They say tbat uponVn tertng' the car it is started so suddenly that passengers are nearly thrown off their feet, or are. at least, after getting half way up the isle compelled to walk backward to keep from fall ing. On leaving the car, when it Is stopped suddenly, they are forced also acalnst their will to run the length of the car. stopping by running against the door frame. Tbe complainants say this is not tbe case on the Fifth avenue line, and ask why. A crip man on the Fifth avenue line was asked for an explanation. He said the trouble could very easily be avoided by the sudden loosening of tbe crip the least bit when the car showed any signs of making a rapid start. He also gave it as bis opinion that tbe Pennsylvania avenue road would not last half as long as tbe Fifth avenue line. He thinks there will be cave-Ins all along tbe road. Wben asked why tbe Pitts burg Traction Company's cars run much smoother than the others, he said it is because the roadbed on Penn avenue was not built as solidly as tbe other. He further stated that the downtown cable would bo rnn at a greater speed if it were not for the small loop on Liberty street. At pres ent the downtown cable is running at the rate of six miles an hour, and the other two at 11 miles an hour. The grlpman also said that a 15, or even a 20-mile speed, could be run in the East End without danger, and that there is some talk of increasing the rate of speed to 16 miles an hour. HERRINGS AHEAD OP M0SQU1T0S. A Primary School of tbe Little Fish Get Aronnd the Point Did They Corao From South Fork Lake. Whether or not it was caused by the Cone maugh flood, the fact is that there is a shoal and a school of fresh-water herring at Councilman Cavanaugh's landing. On Sunday several boys caught over a hundred, and yesterday Matt himself captured 23 of those fish fit for a fry. Prior to 1863, when the snrface of the Alle gheny began to be spotted with oil, herring was easily to be caught from the Allegheny river steamboat landing with a floating line in July, August or September even during mosquito time. This insect is not due here until August, most years not until the end of that month. Then there is a water mosquito, without any sting, which, with apparent Innocence, drops down to the snrface of the river and is promptly captured by the cute herring. The bablts of this fish have not been studied since oil surfaced tbe Allegheny. Last Sunday, however, the school of herring put in their ap pearance just around the Point, and at once played about there as though they bad escaped from tbe South Fork Fishlnc Club's lake down tbe Conemaugh and iClsklmlnetas. Certain it is that If there were berrinc in that lake they wonld not, when reaching tbe Allegheny, go up stream, because of the obnoxious oil, which has, since 1863, driven them almost totally out of that stream, and few of them flourish in the Allegheny's tributaries above Freeport. The fact that they have taken a place of ref use in the Monongahela, even a few feet from the Point, where the waters meet, is proof posi tive that they prefer the one to the other. THE WHY AND WHEREFORE. Reason Given for Fallore to Act In the Bcandretl-Hodfleld Case. Explanations are afloat as to the failure of the grand jury to act on the cases of Richard Scandrett and William H. Hadfleld, for alleged bribery in the Allegheny Councilmanic contest. District Attorney Porter and Assistant District Attorney Haymaker say they had nothing to do in tbe matter and turn inquirers loose on Grand Jury Clerk Pagan. Mr. Fagan said: "Ex-Chief Murphy, of Alle gneny, was the officer in charge of the case. On the day of tbe Bar Association picnic. Officer Murphy asked Mr. Haymaker when the case could gotothe grand jury, and Mr. Haymaker answered that it would be the next day. Now I am In tbe'hablt of fixine the time for hear ings, and as I was not present at the time of tie conversation and had not yet drawn the indictment the hearing could not nroceed. On the 20th, however. Officer Murphy brought over from Allegheny tbe following witnesses: De tective McClure, Councilman J. 8. Ebert, Will iam Foster, Mayor Pearson, Chief of Police Korscbler. Councilman James Hunter and Health Officer Bradley. "They v. ere told tbat hearing was postponed and to come back on the 26th. Mayor Pearson said he would be back from the seashore to tes tify, but wben the day came not one of them Putin an appearance. They probably know why the case went no f urther.'f Detective Murphy states tbat the grand Jury had adjourned before the second day set for a bearing, but tbat the case would be heard by the next grand jury. THEY MEET THEIR PASTOR. The Members of a Clinrch In Hnzelwood are J Given a Reception. At Hassell Hill, the elegant residence of HillBurgwln. Esq., Hazelwood, a reception was given last night by that gentleman to the members of the Church of the Good Shepherd of Hazelwood. Apart from the enjoyable social intercourse which the gathering afforded the guests present, the reception had been tendered for a special object. This was to give the members of the church an opportunity of socially meeting the Rev. A. D. Heffern. the newlv chosen rta&tor of thn Church nf thn ftnnri "Shepherd, and bis worthy wife. HuiieanumDeroiine cburcn members re sponded to tbe invitation, and the evening was spent in a very delightful manner. Rev. A D. Heffern preached at the Church of the Good Shepherd for the first time last Sunday. FLIM-FLAM WAS THE GAME, And Morgan I Said to be the Name of the Man Who Played It. On Saturday night last Inspector McKelvy arrested a man named Charles Morgan and locked him up in the Twenty-eighth wird sta tion as a suspicious character. The arrest was kept quiet for the reason tbat several persons were wanted to identify Morgan. These witnesses were secured yesterday, and they recognized tbe prisoner as tbe man who had worked tbe "flim-flam" act on them. Mor ean has, it is alleged, been working this old scheme for some time on the Southside in a small but successful way. An information will be lodged against him this morning. AFTER POINTERS. A Delegation of Booster Examine Pitts bars' w Court Boon. The County Commissioners of Wayne county, Ind., hailing from Richmond, were in Pitts burg yesterday examining tbe new court bouse. Like all other commissioners who have seen the structure, the Hooslers were very much pleased, and will likely adopt tbe good points in buildlne their own palace of justice. Mr. Rupe. a prominent lawyer of Richmond, stated that they had a jail, but they needed a court house badly, and intended to build one. In the party were H. C. Fox, Ben Myrlck. J. L. Rupe and D. H. Zeller. THAT TRATE LEES' CLUB. Ford Fall to Report, Bat Mr. Kohler Thinks the Clab I All Rlslit. Mr. Kohler expected Mr. Ford, of the Com mercial Travelers' Clnb, to make a report yes terday afternoon, but he failed to put in his appearance. Mr. Kohler thinks the clnb is all right, but he has no desire to be custodian of the funds. He held a short conference with Lewis Godfrey, who is working up the scheme. Mr. Godfrey said the club rooms would be lo cated on Sixth avenue, and they Here going ahead with the canvass. The picnic and excur sion will be held to-day. TWO POLISH FIGHTS. Mrs. ToakI and Adam Chelbeo Appeared Before the Mas;Wtrate. Mrs. Voski. a resident of the Twelfth ward, lodged an information before Alderman War ner against James Rosinski for assault and battery. The parties are neighbors and quar reled. Rosinski was rrrested, and, in deiault of bail, committed to jail for a bearing. Alderman Doughty yesterday issued a war rant for tbe arrest for Anthony Kloskuski on a charge of assault and battery, preferred by Adam Chelbeo. It was claimed by Chelbeo that Kloskuski abused his child. IT GROWS MORE SLOWLY. Tbe Pittsburg Fond for Johnstown's Relief Reaches 8727,084. Treasurer Thompson reports the relief fund to have reached 1727.084. The contributions yesterday were: Citizens of Grand Rapids, Mien., (add.) 162; citizens of Owasso, Mich, (add.)

Greatest Gathering of Window Glass Workers for Tears. 1 AN INSIDE AND ADVANCE VIE Of What is Likely to Coma Before the Rich Union for Action. IMPORTATION AND THE APPRENTICES The delegates to the "Window Glass "Work ers' Convention had all arrived last night, and from the spirit which man ifested itself among the men during -yesterday afternoon the prospects are that the fifth annual convention will be thO most suc cessful in the his- Pretident James Campbell, tory of the organ ization. Take it all in all, the association is now in a better standing all aronnd than ever it was before. Owing to the harmony which has been existing between the work ers and manufacturers of late years, the or ganization is in a better financial standing at present than it has ever been before. Numerically, the union is also mnch stronger than in any previous year, and with the excep tion of about ten men every window glass blower in the country belongs to the organiza tion. , Am. There are 109 delegates present, ana mo Southside people have made every prepara tion to insure their guests good acco m m odations during tbe time they stay in' the city. These dele gates represent 17 States, S3 Con gressional dis tricts and 3,661 workingmen. The hall where the convention will be held has been gorgeously deco rated with floral emblems of all kinds. Potted Secretary George Z Cake. plants have been placed around the walls in great profusion, and over the door a beautiful floral sign of double white lettering has been put up bidding "Welcome" to all delegates. SOME IMPORTANT TOPICS. From a business point of view, the present convention embodies many more Important points than any convention previously held. The introduction of the tank system will ab sorb a great deal of the discnsslons to be in dulged in. The workers have come. to the con clusion that the tank has come to stay, apd one. of the first things they will do Is to adopt such measures as will enable them to control the workings of the tank tbe same as they have done tbe pots heretofore. The next thing, and a matter which is likely to cause a spirit of animation in the speakers, is the recent importation of window-glass men from Europe. But. while this may produce some very heated arcuments. there is no doubt that, in the end, Messrs. Campbell apd Cake will come out on top, and will receive by accla mation an Indorsement of their action. A good many of tbe delegates were spoken to yester day afternoon on that very qnestion and, while they all admitted that efforts would be made by some of the local members of the union to have Mr. Campbell hauled over the coals: still the opposition is not strong enough to do any serious damage. The question of the importation of glass workers will at once lead to the subject of a modification of the apprenticeship rules, and. from all appearances, the system will be a great deal more liberal than it has ever been before. , Mr. P. Victor Malre. of 'Canastota. N. Y- a prominent member of the Window Glass Workers' Association, amemberof the Wages Committee and a gentleman who; In conjunc tion with President Campbell, worked very hard in tbe interest of President Harris n dur ing tbe last campaign, gave a Dispatch re porter an interesting talk on the convention and the subjects to be discussed. Said be: "Regarding the question of those Imported window glass men to Jcannette, you may as well understand that the association will in dorse the action of tbe officers, and I think they ought to be highly commended for the course tbey adopted in this case. When Cham bers &. McKee bad their tanks ready tbey wanted men to work them. Well, tbev came to Mr. Campbell and asked for the blowers. The fact then became patent that there were NOT SUFFICIENT MEK IDLE tofilltheposltlonswhich would become vacant as soon as the tanks would be ready for operation. Tbenthe qnestion with our officers lay right here: 8hall we allow these manufacturers toN go to Europe and bring non-unionists into this coun try, or shall we fill their works from the branches of our oiganlzation in Europe, and thereby keep the control of their works r That was the whole question in a nutshell, and when they let these men come over .who are mem bers of our organization, they just did theright tbing, and any man who has the success and tbe welfare of our organization at heart will say so. Tbe only people who started a fight against Mr. Campbell did so from political reasons; that is all, and they used this matter of the imported classmen merely as a subter fuge." "Wbat will be done in regard to the appren ticeship system?" "Well, tbat will be considerably modified. The enormous increase in tbe number of fur naces during the last year or so, and the addi tional fact of tbe introduction of the tank fur nace, makes it necessary to do something. There are at present 70 per cent of all the glass blowers in Europe waiting for a call to come over here and take a band in the window class business, and of course It is our object to keep them out. We want to have Americans working In American glasshouses, and hence tbe number of apprentices has to be increased. The present rule of 20 per cent of the total .numbers is too low,-and I believe it will be doubled by tho convention." "Now, what in regard to wagesT" "That I am not sure "about, although I ought to know more, since 1 am a member of tbe Wage Committee. But of one thing you may be certain: there will not be a reduction In wages; if there is any change at all, it will be a slight increase." On Wednesday or Thursday all the delegates to tbe convention will go to Jeannette to visit the glassworks, in response to an invitation from Messrs. Chambers & McKee. A special train is to be chartered for that purpose. THE PBOGBAHME TO-DAY. To-day's convention will principally be taken up by a reading of the President's report. This is the first time a regular report has ever been presented to the delegates by tho chief official of the organization, and considerable interest is manifested in it, Mr. Campbell stated last night that he had prepared 25 pages of fools cap, which bad been worked out on a type writer. Tho paper is fraught with statistics and matter of great interest to the glass workers. An official of the association was also asked whether tbe scheme of building a hall might come before tbe convention, and lie replied: "Yes. undoubtedly; when tbe Finance Com mittee make their report, the matter will most likely be discussed. The. association has its fund now distributed among a number of banks and, to judge by tbe many bank rob beries and failures which have lately come to light, we are anxious to place our money under better security, and real estate is as good an in vestment as anything else." SOME MORE SIGNATURES. The Amalgamated Association's Seals Is Gradually Accepted. The signing of tbe scale of the iron workers continues. The Hubbard Iron Company, of Hubbard, O.; Wayne Steel Works Company, Belleville. 111.; Ohio Falls Iron Works, New Albany, Ind.; Laughlln A Junction Steel Works, Mingo Junction, O., all put their names to tbe scale yesterday. Tbe signature of Phillips. Ntmlck 4 Co. was also Obtained, and tbe Sligo mills, will start up again. This was somewhat of a surprise to the' Amalgamated men. because it was supposed that this wonld be one of tbe last firms to come to terms. The last signature obtained was from Spang, Chalfant fe, Co.'s Pipe Mills, Etna. l Coal Operator Unjust. miners' strike in Illinois, and said the Illinois coal operators were unjust in not paying the scale agreed upon. TO FIX A MINIMUM. Workers of the CounelUvIHe Coke Region Resolve to Conveno and Fix Wage The Only Alternative. " There is to be a great convention of coal miners and mine laborers of tbe Connellsvllle coke region at Everson on the 17th, as the fol lowing call from Scottdale last evening clearly sets'forth: To tbe miners and mine laborers of the ConneUs- vllle coke region, greeting": On tbe ISth or April, 1889, a joint convention of miners and mine laborers, organized and unor ganized, was held at Scottdale, and the following resolutions were unanimously adopted: The sense of the employes has been ascertained, and a .large majority are most emphatically in favor of demanding a conference with our em ployers. We deem it our dnty to Inform all miners and mine laborers employed in the Con nelUvllle coke region that a lolnt convention of organized and unorganized workmen will be held at Everson on Wednesday, rfuly 17, 189, at 9:30 A.

The Flint GIa Convention at Bellnlrc No Trooble, Except From Shade and Chim ney Men Addresses. While there is great interest in the Window Glass Workers' Convention now assembling in Pittsburg, there .is scarcely less importance attaching to the National Convention of American Flint Glass Workers, now In session at Bellalre, O. A report from this scene of activity last evening, said: The convention met in School Hall this morning with 172 of the 1SS delegates present, and hundreds of glaisworkers from neighboring cities were in town. President W. J. Smith called the conven tion to order, and; after the Committee on Cre dentials was appointed. Mayor Brown delivered an address of welcome, which was responded toby Mr. Smith. Tbe Mayor of Wheeling also ad- dressed tbe convention, after which the conven- tlon heard tne report of the Committee on Cre dentials. There were no contests: but this com mittee recommended some cbanges In the matter of delegates which provoked such a discussion that a recess was taken for dinner. The afternoon session was taken up in disposing of tbe report, which was Anally sat down upon, but too late for the reports from President Smith and Secretary Dillon to be heard. Tbe latter re port is the most elaborate ever prepared, and this convention is the largest one ever held, a large number of tbe delegates being new ones. Tbe shade and the chimney men are the only ones from whom trouble is expected, as they have dlflerences tbey have been unable to adust with tbe manufacturers during the last week. The In surance feature will not be Introduced until Thursday, and there Is wide difference of opinion as to Its success. OKE TO BREAK THE EEC0ED. Probability of 6,300.000 Tan Getting Down From lake Ports. According to Cleveland ad vices, the shipments of iron ore from lake potts are very satisfactory. One report on this point yesterday said: Fourth of July idleness made a temporary delay in shipments of ore from the mines to lower lake ports. There is still every indication of the ship ments of ore for the present season exceeding all previous records, and 6,500,000 tons is an inside estimate on tbe outont. Tbe great feature of the situation Is the regularity of shipments and the steady condition of freight rates. Nererln tbe history of lake navigation has a season progressed with less variation in rates of freight. All Inter ests are satisfied. The ore producer is not in clined to reduce rates, and there is a fair profit In them for the vessel owners, although coal Is being carried up tbe lakes at very low rates. Since the opening of navigation tbe rates on ore have been tl 23 from Ashland and Two Harbors. 11 10 from Marquette and 00 cents from Kscanaba and Glad stone. These figures will In all probability rule through July aud August unless the Iron market shows signs ofa boom. Tbe rates In the fall will. of course, be higher on account of the dangers of navigation and tbe delay In shipments. Pipe Workers Strike. Twenty-five Italian and colored meu who have been working putting down water pipe on Penn avenue, East End, for Contractor E. Scanlan refused to work any longer for $1 25 a day. Tbey demanded tl 50. Contractor Scan lan expects to have other men at work this morning. BPEAK-EASI AND CHUCE-A-LUCK. Attractions of Glorious Independence Day Come to Grief. Charley Hardy, Isaac Dickson, C, F. Docdord and John McKee will have a hearing to morrow evening before Alderman Helnncbs, the first three on the charge of selling liquor without license, and McKee for gambling. John Monds will also be given a bearing Monday, July 22, on the charge of gambling. The informations were lodged by Matthew Best, Constable of Knoxville borough. It Is claimed that, on July 4, Constable Best went to tbe Southside Driving Park in Baldwin township. He found Hardy, Dickson and Docdord running a bar, and purchased liquor from tbem. McKee and Monds were also helping tbe people celebrate by running a chuck-a-luck game. Constable Best assisted tbem by losing $21 on the game. The next day he went before Alderman Helnriciis, of the Thirty-first ward, and brought tbe suits against the men. In addition to those given, he entered suit against McKee to recover tbe 21 he bad lost on tbe game. Hardy, Dickson, Docdord and McKee gave bail for a bearing to-morrow night, wben arrested by Constable Morgan, of Baldwin township. Woods was given a partial bearing yesterday morning, which was continued until Monday, July 22. JR. 0. U. & 11. STATE PARADE. A Great Event That 1 Expected to Draw ' 1.000 From Here.

D0SA STILL MISSING. The Bteplein Girl Is Evidently Disposed to Stny Away, Tbe Dora Bteplein case Is still in the same stato it hvs been for the last week. Everything is at rest, and will be until the girl can' be found; but there does not seem to be any likeli hood tbat that will be soon. Alderman Hart man had two more little girls In his office last night for tbe purpose of getting some data from tbem about the missing girl, but tbey were as non-committal as any of the other girls.

GENERAL TIEWS OP-A BATTLE ROIAIj Talk about tbe volatility of tbe French nationl It is nowhere when compared with the marvelous versatility of the average Fittsbnrger. A few days ago the whole town was babbling over with enthusiasm engendered by the great playing of the Pittsbnrgs. Yesterday no one would have known that the baseball boys, reinforced by two men whose fight against signing has become nationally famous, were opening the new Polo Grounds in New Tork City with great eclat. The great prize fight was the universal topic: Acquaintances saluted each other with inquiries about tbe mill. Busi ness men in restaurants asked for news of the slugging match between mouthfuls of food. People on loot or horseback, no mat ter where bound, made. a pretext of errands on Fifth avenue in order to pass by Tbe Dis rATCH bulletin board, where the earliest au thentic news from the ring was bulletined. In a word. It was tho absorbing topic of conversa tion. THOSE EIOnT-ROtWD STOBIES. As usual on prize-fight occasions, the inac cessibility of tbe scene of the fight compelled tbe afternoon journals to indulge liberally in rumors and surmises, with such a result that thousands refused to believe any and all 're ports, and decided to await tbe more authentic accounts in this morning's papers. Tbe scenes In front of The Dispatch bulle tin were animated In the extreme. Tbe shoulders of the truculent, short-haired citizen of the Point towered above the slight form of tbe bookkeeper or clerk, but both faces wore the same anxious look. The bright eyes of tbe fair sex seemed to seek the bulletin board with as great interest as tbe. sterner sex displayed. Vain are the diatribes against the brutalizing side of the fistic art when nearly the whole population of a city hangs with breathless interest upon the an nouncements made of the progress of tbe great slugging contest. No one walked by with airy indifference, and a crowd of varying size lin gered around the front of The Dispatch office from early morn to dewy eve. One of tbe incidents of theday was positively amusing. An elderly humanitarian, with gold bowed spectacles and mauve-colored whiskers, stood on the curbstone at the edge of the crowd and expatiated vigorously TJPOH THE SHOCKIKQ SIGHT of two human beings In an arena biting and chewing and thumping each other. The elderly Individual was quite convulsed with anger be cause the Governors of Mississippi and Ionist ana seemed unable to stop the fight. "I can't 'understand it all," quoth he. "Why. If those two bullies came to Pittsburg and tried to give their barbarous show Captain Wish art would mlghtv soon stop the fight. It's a pity there is not some one like him down there." When a bulletin was posted announcing Sul livan's victory as a positive fact, the boys with sporting bloid in their veins came out very strongly. Little groups were formed from which information radiated like a nimbus in everv direction. It is, of course, cot remarka ble that Kilraln men should go into a bole and pull It in after tbem when vlctury had perched upon the Bostonlan's banner, but as a matter of simple fact, the Pittsburg talent pinned their faith to the "big 'un" from the signing of the articles. Not much money was laid locally on tbe fight, the short-end odds of 2 to 1 being generally taken by that class of plungers who think a bet of that nature pretty good, win or lose. There were some candid and outspoken admirers of Jake, but tbey sang small when it came to hazarding the nimble fiver on the Issue of tbe fight. Satisfaction at tbe result seemed to be the prevalent feeling in all circles. IRISH .CITIZENS JUBILANT. The sentiment of the Irish contingent of. Pittsburg citizens might' be reasonably sup posed to be somewhat mixed, inasmuch as both Sullivan and Kilrain are of Celtic origin and antecedents. But. Sullivan was a tremendous favorite. Enough beer to flood a 24-foot ring flowed in honor of the victory last night in the various downtown saloons, there being no sporting re sorts or poolrooms open. The Boston boy was toasted forward and back and all bands 'round, and little knots of men listened with grave in terest to certain fellows who talked learnedly of "sponges," "rushes." "bottle-holders," "un der cuts," "ropes," "guards," "dukes." "falls," and other prize ring lingo, and the man who had actually seen an exhibition of tbe manly art of self defense was overwhelmed with attentions, listeners and beer. It was a great day for local sports, and all agreed tbat the much-talked-of decadence of the prize ring had been very sud denly arrested by the first big fight on the dead square which has been lought for years. Everyone also seemed glad that the fight had continued to an end without police interrup tion and that a draw bad not been the ontcome of months of bluffing. THE X TOLD YOU SO'S. A police official said: "I remember the re mark ' Paddy Ryan made after his fight with Sullivan. It wastbat 'no one had any license to. believe that he could do Sullivan if the big 'un was in shape.' Sullivan has proved himself 'once more the champion of the world." A great many of the City Hall officials had put a bard earned dollar on Sullivan, and when the authentic information, was received ttut Sullivan had won, there was much rejoicing. One official, however, remarked with consider able acidity that he was very glad the fight was over, as bis official life bad been a burden lately owing to animated controversies on the prize ring topic AT THE CITT HOTELS. It was easy to see. tbat nine out of ten of the traveling men who are temporarily housed in Pittsburg hostelrics had elevated money on the great battle. As usual on such occasions everybody in sight were winners, conveying the impression that the losers were sequestred in silent solitude; Gray-headed traveling men sat around and recounted remembrances of John Morrissey, Joe Co burn and otber famous fighters, and one gentlemanly back number tried to palm off bis personal reminiscences of tbe Benlcia Boy and the Heenan-Sayers fight, but the youngsters pulled chestnut bells so vigorously tbat the reminiscences evaporated in a mist of buck beer The Kllrnln Man Escaped. A lively fight occurred yesterday afternoon at the river bank; foot of Fourteenth street, between a man named C. Mlnahan and another party, known in tbe vicinity by the name of "Hero." The contestants engaged first in a controversy relative to the merits of Sullivan and Kilrain, and afterward indulged in a fight. Mlnahan was an advocate of Sullivan. "Hero" took tbe opposition. Officer Peoples put a stop to the fight by arresting Mlnahan. The other escaped. DROWNED WHILE BATHING. One of the Host Popular Young Men In Homestead Gone. Ambrose Self ert, aged 21 years, was drowned In the Monongahela river last evening at Home stead while bathing. He was bartender at tbe Homestead Hotel, and was a general favorite anionc bis many friends. He has a sister at tbe hotel. The Coroner was notified and will hold an inquest to-day. A Knlurnl Gna Lenk. All along Fifth avenue in the East End large holes have been dug by the Philadelphia Com pany for the purpose of discovering a leak in one of their mains. The work has been going on for weeks, but as yet tbe leak has not been found. More Pipe Laying. The Monongahela Natural Gas Company yesterday secured permission' from the Depart ment of Public Works to tear up the streets of the Southside for. the purpose of laying their mains, and the work will begin this morning. Christian Delegate A delegation of 25 members from St, Paul and Minneapolis passed through tbe city last nltrht en route to PhUadalnhla to attend tha Christian Endeavor Convention. They were I -joined here by 15 delegate from Cleveland I THE 0UFER WIRE SUIT. A Very Important Case Growing Oat of a Patent Infrlnaement. As bearing upon a large Pittsburg Industrial interest, the following from tbe ClevelandPIafn- dealer will be read with interest in this vicinity: , The patent case In which the American Wire V.VUpUJ W. .U. VHJ ft 1U,VIKU i " .- .aw.. to that concern. The American Wire Company Is virtually a part of the Utls Iron and Steel, and al though a close corporation it Is sare to say tbat the big steel company owns stock in It. It Is cer tain that the owners of the steel company are con trolling owners in the wire works. However, the plant Is second to only one other of Its kind In the country, rolling out 100 to 2C0 tons of wlreaday, and has added materially to Cleveland's prosper ity during the few years of its existence, rue works are employing 700 men and running day and night. Thomas Jonltng is President ot the concern, Samuel T. Wallmau Vice President and William Arkless General Manager. The direc tors are Samuel Andrews, Charles A. Otis, Dan P. tells. Thomas -lopllng. Samuel T. WeUman, Joseph K. Bole and J. B. Savage. The Oliver A Koberts Wire Company. Limited, is the rival Plttaburg concern which brings suit against the local company In the matter of a pat ent. In 18S8 they patented a mill Coor for rolling rods and there are two claims In contention one, broadly, the Inclined mill floor and a limited claim on a gnlde directing the running end of tbe metal. Tho American Wire Company claims tbat tbe procedure of tho Pittsburg people was not to obtain a judgment, bnt to put an immediate pre liminary Injunction upon them and thereby force a license fee. The local people say tbat tbev have little tear of the outcome of the suit, now tbat they have been successful In killing aU efforts to secure an injunction, as the patent was obtained on affidavits falsely representing tbe prior state or the work. JUDGE COLLIER'S OPPOSITION. It Won't Come to a Head, for There Wn a Misunderstanding-. The report that the Democracy will put up a candidate for tbe Judgeship against Judge Collier doesn't amount to much when sifted. J. W. Brennan, Esq., Democratic ex-County Chairman, was asked about the situation and he said that, while some Democrats bad talked of urging a candidate, ,the counsel was made in beat over what be (Mr. Brennan) believed to be a misunderstanding. It will be remembered that a few weeks ago a board was appointed to reapportion electoral districts. At tbe request of some people Mr. Brennan submitted tho name of a Democrat whom they urged. Judge Collier stated that the appointments had been made, and that, for the time being, ended tbe matter. Subse quently, however, as alleged at least, it turned out tbat tbe appointments had not been made, as stated by tbe Judge, but that he had mis understood tbe matter. THEY HATE $50,000.

The excessive and almost stifling heat of yes terday was commented on and evaded, as far as possible, by thousand! of Pittsburgers. But there were many who could seek no cool, se questered spot, because their daily toil kept tbem busy In places hotter than the sun shone on. The only possible fatality reported was from Woods' rnn. John Austin, a single man, 30 years old. employed in Oliver Bros. & Phillips' mill. Woods' run, was overcome by beat while repairing some machinery yesterday.

Flemon, a Colored Minister, is Arrested After Preaching IN THE ARTHUR STREET CflORCH For a Crime Said to Have Been Committed in South Carolina in 1886. HE TAKES THE MATTER TEBT COOLLY E. F. Flemon; alias John Teldell, was arrested at 10 o'clock last night in this city, just after he had concluded servipes as a minister in a colored church ou Arthur street, on a. charge of murder. The arrest was tbe result of a telegram re ceived by Inspector MoAleese from Sheriff Thomas F. Lyon, of Edgefield county, South Carolina, a few days ago. The telegram stated that Flemon, or Yeldell, had been implicated' in .a brutal murder in that connty in 1886, bnt fled at the time and had not been heard of since until a short time ago, when, through a letter addressed to somebody in that locality, it was learned that he had located in this vicinity. The description given of' the man was that he was a brown mulatto, about 32 years of age, scar on left cheek, weighed about 175 pounds, and had certain peculiarities of carriage and build. Detective Conlson and the Inspector at once started to work on the case, and yes terday decided that "Rev. E. Flemon," of the Arthur Street "Wesley Church was their man. Both the officers went to tbe church last night and watched the minister in his pulpit for awhile, after which they decided to arrest him. They did not Interrupt tbe services, but at tbe conclusion followed Flemon to his board ing house, No. 20 Logan street He seemed greatly surprised when told what he was wanted for, but would not acknowledge that he was the man. He was taken to Central sta tion where he was searched, and a number of letters addressed to Rev. Flemon were found upon him. What tho letters contained the officers kept to themselves. "TTord was tele graphed to Sheriff Lyon last nieht. and he is expected here to-morrow to get his prisoner. Flemon, it has been learned, was a student at tbe colored college at Wilber, O., nntil about a year and a half ago, wben be came here and opened a little store at tbe corner of Wjlle avenue' and Arthur street He made a little' moaey there, -and about a year ago re turned to college." Six months ago he came back to this city, and has since been employed as a waiter at tbe Central Hotel. He is an unusually bright and well educated colored man, and betrays no signs of nervousness over his arrest He has been regaraed as a very exemplary man and minister by the colored people here.

" "' The First One That Ever Trod the Present: Owl Gone Beat. To a Pittsburger of tbe present few ex periences are more interesting than a chat with some of the old-timers of the Pittsburg of 60 or 60 years ago. The otber day A M. Brown gos siped with a Dispatch reporter on the time Iwhen Fifth avenue did not present as busy a scene as some or today's country towns, ana wben fights in front of the old Pittsburg Thea ter (now the Casino Museum) were common. Mr. Brown's father was a policeman under Mayor Ltddell, about 1832, and was tbe first of ficer that trod Seventh and Wylie avenues. In . those days the policemen had rattles instead of whistles, and tbey sounded like a-threshing machine on a big stack. In the evening they , called the hours and what kind of weather it was going to be. An early retlrer stood the chance of Deing awakened bv the policeman cryine "half-past 10; starlight!' or "moonlight night," "clouds gathering in the East," etc Mr. Brown was tbe nrst newsboy to carry The Dispatch across the Monongahela river in 1845, and has not missed perusing a copy since its first issue.
