THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH. SATURDAY, JULY - 13, 1889.
The Eetailers Will Petition
the Court for a Eevision
Such Action is Urged on the Ground
of Public Necessity,
TO C0EEECT THE EXISTING ABUSES.
From 15,000 to 20,000 Signers Have Been
Secured in the County.
AN APPEAL IS KOr CONTEMPLATED
The roost reputable retail liquor men in
Allegheny county who were refused licenses'
are about ready to present a petition to the
Court, asking for a review of the list. It
was the intention to submit the papers this
morning, but, owing to the illness of Judge I
W hite, they will hardly be presented beloie
Monday. Attorneys John Eobb, Charles
Montooth and C. F. McKenna held a short
consultation yesterday to determine the
time when to hand in the petition. Mr.
Jtfsiab Cohen, who is also employed, is out
of the city.
The idea is not to appeal to the Supreme
Court to reverse the lower Court as has been
erroneously published! but the petitioners
merely ask for a revision of the refused
license list for certain good reasons.
GOOD MEN IN CIIABGB.
Some of the best retail men in the country
hare had the matter in charge, and attended
to the circulation of the petition. Among
the local retailers on the committee are
Nick Young and Tom Delaney. From 15.
000 to 20,000 signers have been secured, and
Kick Young said If the members bad worked
harder more names could have been added,
but the liquor men thought it was not neces
sary. Mr. Young,ln speaking of what they intended
t do last night, said: "It is not true that a
syndicate of lawyers sent us a circular letter
agreeing to take up our cases for a good re
tainer, neither Is the petition the work of the
Retailers' Association. A few o! us conceived
the Idea, and we have made an effort to sift out
all the saloon keepers who keep "speak easies.'
Only the best men will bo allowed to sign.
"Two months have now elapsed since the
licenses were granted, and we think we can
show the Court that public necessity demands
more saloons. A number of evils and abuses
Of the license sjetem have sprung up. Liquor
is sold ill icitly in numerous places, and the
county and city derive no revenues. These
men are irresponsible, and openly violate the
AN ADVAHTAOE IT MIGHT BE.
"If the licenses were Increased this evil could
be remedied. I have also seen liquor peddled
from bouse to house, and offered for sale. We
believe if the Judges were acquainted with
these facts tbey might be led to revise the list.
"Besides it mnst bo patent to them, as it is to
the people, that a monopoly of the business in
the country has been created."
From 200 to 250 saloon keepers are Interested
in the movement. If the Judges should con
Sent to review the list of refused each man
would appear personally before the Court and
present his case. The liquor men know that
the decision of the Supreme Court in the Rade
baugh case is against them, and any
attempt to appeal would be fruitless.
As petitioners they haven't any legal rights
and if the Jndges refuse to listen to the peti
tion that fettles it. It will bo presented on
public grounds and for the good of the commu
nity. CAUSE OF THEIR BEVIVAL.
From another source it wis learned that the
recent decision of the Supreme Court in the
wholesale cases has agitated the retailers. The
latter discover that the former in many In
stances are only retailers, and they think it is
not just that a man should bo allowed to run a
jug line and class it as wholesale trade.
At the conference of attorneys jestcrday
none of the liquor men were present. One of
the attorneys said after the meeting that im
mediately after the decision of tho License
Conrt had been rendered, the retailers organ
ized for the purpose of securing either legis
lative or judicial aid. They have concluded to
appeal tairly and squarely to the Court to see
what can be done in tho way of granting more
SEASONS FOR DELAY.
While talking to another attorney of the
liquor dealers, the gentleman remarked to a
Dispatch: reporter: "Of course I am not cer
tain when the petition will be presented to the
lower courts. The first thing which will pre
vent it is the absence or Mr. Josiah Cohen, the
senior counsel, and again wo are waiting for
Judge White to reappear in court, because It
wonld only be common courtesy due to him to
have him consider the matter."
"But is it possible for Judge White to even
consider tho petition of tho retail liquor
dealers at this timer
"Oh, yes! Tho court is what we call a con
tinuous court, and the Judges can grant and re
fuse licenses whenever they think fit."
"But would it be consistent with Judge
White's past action as regards the granting of
licenses to consider the petitions of the retail
WHY IT IS DIFFERENT.
"1 do net lee anything wrong In the matter.
The Judge believed that the Brooks law intend
ed a curtailing of the number of saloons, and
be believed that the law demanded certain
qualifications on the part of the applicant. But
inasmuch as the Supreme Court has rnied
otherwise, the Judge maytonlv bo too willing to
modify his deci'ions in accordance.? But mind
you. the number selected by the retailers will
be properly examined by counsel. We will not
allow a name of any man to go on the list who
is not a law-abiding citizen and when we do not
consider a man orthy of holding a license." "
JCST LIKE FLIM-FLAM.
That Is the Nature of the Allegation Against
An interesting hearing was held last night
before Alderman Porter, in which John Labler
was defendant on a charge of obtaining money
under false pretense. An Italian named Car
no preferred the charge. From the story told
by the prasecutor, Lahler is engaged as fore
man by a contractor, and had charge of a num
ber of Italian laborers who were laying a sewer
in East Liberty.
It i said that Lahler has been making eon
siderable money by receiving $2 or 13 each from
the laborers as a bonus for employing them. In
a few days he discharges them, and, it is al
leged, works the samo scheme on new men.
Carrio alleges that he was one of the victims.
He paid J2 for being employed, and in a few
days was discharged. Lahler furnished J1.600
bail lor trial at court.

"Did you experience any obstructions on the

"No! we did not get much into contact with

"It was not for a moment to he presumed

to work on Sunday.
KESISTANCE IS NOT ArPKEHENDED
on the part of the machines; but if they show

tubs or buckets of b-lud or water. Tho
wretched machines will be lugged oif to the
calaboose without any explanation being ac
corded to them. They will be taken e flagrante
delicto, as tho Vulgate hath it and by means

THE AGENT GIVEN WAENINO.
Mr. H. M. Black, Pittsburg agent of the slot
machines which dispense Waukesha water to
the thirsty multitude, assured a Dispatch
reporter last evening that he had received
semi-official intimations from the Law and
Order League that all machines found selling
water to-morrow wonld be forthwith arrested.
"Itsecms absurd, does it not!" queried Mr.
Black. The mere idea of arresting a machine.
The method that Captain Wishart intends to
pursue. I have been informed, is to confiscate,
to take up or arrest whichever he chooses to
call ltall the machtnesof which I am the agent.
Then whoever applies to the authorities for the
m-icbines will be presumed to be the owner and
will be promptly arrested for violating the Sun'
dawelliug law. I would consider the threat as
a ridiculous joke if it had not come to me in a
perfectly serious manner, I may say as a warn
ing to mo to take the machines in."

certain city magistrate last Monday", In which I
told him that I intended to keep on selling soda

cheerfully appear every Monday and plead
guilty to the crime of quenching thirst on Sun
day, and I asked him to allow me to plead
guilty, and so save witness fees. But that did
not seem to fall in with his ideas. He threw
out a hint that those who bought of mq would
be prosecuted under the 1791 law, and I dared
him to try it on. I cannot say, of course,

not, but I retard the intimation as a bluff.

W. D.Johnston was removed from tho jail
last night and taken east over the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad to be committed to an in
sane asylum at Washington, D. C. Johnston
was arrested on Saturday by the officers of the
U. S. Armv recruiting office here for being a
deserter from the Columbus barracks. He
raved, screamed and acted so violently
that it was thought he was Insane. Ho was
committed to jail for five days, that his mental
condition mi;ht be examined. When placed
in a cell it took half a dozen men to manige
him. On Wednesday he was examined by Dr.
McCann and another physician and pronounced
Up to the time of the examination Johnston
acted so violently that he had to be placed in a
Sadded cell and watched constantly. After be
ad been examined by the doctors, however,
he quieted down and gave no more trouble. A
Lieutenant and private last night took him to
the asylnm at Washington.
Warded Berlin gave It as his opinion that
Johnston was only shamming to evade punish
ment He was so violent before his examina
tion, and so mild alter, as to excite snsnlclon.
Another suspicious circumstance was that dur
ing his imprisonment Johnston received sev
eral telegrams from a woman named Jennie De
Vaux in wheeling. The messages showed that
the Bender knew Johnston was in trouble, and
bore a suggestion of a sham on his part

VITAL TO PITTSBUKG.
Question of Consolidating Two
Bottle Blowers' Assemblies.
PRESIDENT AND WAGES INVOLVED.
An Appeal to Porcderlj to Bring; tho Two
0THEE INDDSTE1AL ITEMS OF INTEREST
Two of the most important and vital
gatherings of the Green Bottle Blowers of
the United States and Canada ever held are
now in simultaneous session at Atlantic
City. The question ot consolidating the
two bodies is a knotty one. Not only offi
cial precedence, but a vital question of
wages Is involved. The whole matter in a
nutshell, with its possible effect on Pitts
burg, is accurately reported in a special tel
egram from Atlantic City to The Dis
patch last night, which is appended:
To-day the green bottle blowers of the
United States and Canada, consisting of Dis
trict Assemblies 143, eat of the Allegheny
Mountains, and 143, west of the mountains,
took up the matter of consolidation of both
assemblies. For years they have been at
daggers points, which has nroven a great detri
ment to both assemblies throughout the
United States. The assemblies are meeting in
different halls, but have fonnd several medi
ators, by means of which tbe present step or
attempt to go forward has been brought about
Local pride, as well as a difference of opinion
as to prices, has always kept these two organi
WHY HE WANTS IT.
Mr. Coffey, President aud leader of eastern
distrior, favors consolidation, because be is
confident of becoming its President more than
anything else. Arrlngton. the western leader,
and President of 14J. is neutral on the matter.
favoring a higher price, but having no desire
of losing bis present office.
Hayes and the other Pittsburg delegates
favor consolidation, but will fight to the end
for Arrington's election, as it is of vltal'import
ance to tbe Pittsburg blowers.
A delegation of flintworkers arrived from
Pittsburg to-day to take a band In tbe fight, as
tLey are its real projectors, since the price fixed
for Wtstern Pennsylvania green bottle blowers
directly affects their wages.
The delegates are unusually reticent on ac
count of tbe situation, which Is indeed critical
nt this time. Two private telegrams were sent
to Master Workman Powderly to-day asking
his influence in the matter of bringing the two
fighting organizations together.
The price list will be taken up as soon as tho
present question Is disposed of. which will be,
probably, to-morrow evening. The convention
will last a week longer. The Campbell matter
has been dropped by both assemblies. They
have left It to Mr. Walter Lyon, United States
District Attorney, to settle.
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF IT.
District Master Workman Coffey, when asked
as to how the delegates received tbe suggestion
of consolidation, and what the leaders thought
of it said:
The glassblowertjconslder It the most ImporHnt
object they were ever called upon to consider,
and want to give it the deliberation which It de
serves. The opinion or the leaders Is that It wonld
strengthen tbe organization wonderfully. It
would be much more economical. Instead of two
sets or officers oulr one would be needed. A
central bureau of information could be established,
and men could, be transferred from one place to
another without Interruption. A more cenerul
uniformity of prices could alto be secured, and
tbe advantages of iiiauuracturers as well as
blowers equalized. In case a consolidation Is
effected such a bureau would be lex sited either In
Philadelphia or l'lttsburg, not fartuer west than
the latter city.
Through the strength that is afforded by out
connection with ths Knights of tabor we li.iye
begun and propoae to wage a successful conflict
against every non-union glass corporation in the
eastern section of our grand country, until the
atmosphere of our trade is thoroughly purged of
these iniquitous pest houses. As a glassblower
s.ndn Knight of Labor. I have no hesitation in
asserting the belief that the hostile opposition
which tbla grand order is encountering will ulti
mately proro that It Is only through the Instru
mentality or tho Knights or Labor that the social
elevation of the working man can he effected, and
there la no better proor of the efficiency of the
order than exists In the fact that It encounters tbe
most obstinate opposition. If It possessed no
merit its course would be smooth aud uninter
rupted. THE FLINT CONVENTION.
An Exclusive IZeport from the Dispatch

The Dispatch correspondent at Bellalre
who has been furnishing exclusive news of tbe
Flint Glass Convention, sends tho following
aaaitionat telegram of vital interest to the

The Associated Press Sends the following
general resume of the work of the convention:
The Flint Glass Workers' Convention got down
to business in good shape to-day and the report of
the i.ngravers' Committee reported no chauzes uf
consequence and It was adopted, ihe Mold
Makers' Committee reported unanimously In
favor of the ; recommendation published Wednes
day, and their report was afsoconflnncd. The
other committees will report to-night and to
morrow, having about concluded their mores and
lists, and, as a whole, there win be no material
changes from the scale now In fore. The oppo
sition to President Smith will not materialize.
The prescription want either the President or the
Secretary, and frtm this feeling sprang consider
able talk, bnt there is no doubt on there-election
or Meurs. Smith and union to their respective
positions. The storm thit threatened the conven
tion was tlansftrred to the committee rooms, and
is gradually disappearing. The convention may
conclude its work Saturday night.
IT WILL LIKELY BE A GO.
Uncle nm Expected to Tnke a Iland
Acalnit Labor Importers.
United States District Attorney Lyon and W.
J. Bremen, Esq , had a long conference yester
day on tbo subject nf the alleged importation
of foreign labor by James Campbell etal,ofSccrs
in Local Assembly 300, K. ot L., and next
Thursday, it is said, something definite will be
determined regarding tho Institution of suit
Sir. Brennen talked as though somo action
must bo awaited from tbe United States Treas
ury Department Messrs. Lyon and Brennen
got into a corner by themselves, save that
Homer McGaw was allowed within bearing
distance, and as they talked In a Iowkey.it
was impossible to hear what thoy said.
From the energetic way in which Mr.Lvon
shook bis head at intervals, the reporters sur
mised that Mr. Brennen's arguments did not
strike blm favorably, bnt Mr. Brennen dm not
subsequently confirm the supposition. He
talked as though there would likely bo action
taken, but all gotten ont of him was about as
satisfactory as wind pudding to a hungry man.
Mr. McUaw was rather more communicative,
and It was learned that tho prosecution had
strengthened Its position bv tho reception of
letters from England lately,' and there seems to
be considerable confidence in tbo ability to
make out a case.
Mr. Brennen seemed to be pretty well
flanked. Messrs. Joseph Evans and Isaac Cline
were iu the room, but the latter didn't show
bis hand. The people who are pushing the
matter are encouraged to make more strennons
effort since reading tbe decision of Secretary
Windom in the case of the seven English im
migrants who recontly arrived at New York on
the Ahdam and who were prevented from land
ing under tbe ptovisions of the alien contract
labor law. A statement of that case was pub
lished in yesterday's Issue of Tiie Dispatch.
A LIVELY SESSION
Of the Window Glass Workers' Associa
tion Held Yesterday.
Yesterday's tesslon of the Window Glass
Workers' Convention was a very lively one.
There was a breezy dlscnsslon on the manner
in which the affairs ot the organization have
been conducted. Some of the members are
rtlsatifled, while others arn plMsed over the
manner in which the affairs have been handled
by the officials of the organization.
Several of the committees reported, and
their reports were acted upon. Tho Commit
tee on Finance recommended that the bonds of
the President and Secretary be Increased from
(1,500 to 53,000 each, as they handle a great deal
The meeting, as usual, was a secret one, and
tho cjuse of the fight that is alleged to have
occurred was not given, the delegates saying
that no trouble of any kind took nlacc. The
business of the convention will nut be com
pleted until late next week.

Tho Bible or n Johnstown Family Floats
Down tho River It Accidentally Falls
Into a Daughter's Hands.
Three young men strolling along tho rivef
bank in Millrale borough the other evening,
saw lying in tbo sand a Bible, all tattered and
torn. One gave tbo book a kick, the second
man did tho same thing, bat tho third reproved
his companions for such a lack of respect
toward tho Bible, at tbo same time picking it
up.meanlngto preserve It as a relic. Afterha
bad examined it he found It was a family Biblo
with a complete record of the family hitory of
a Mrs. Catherine Divis, of Johnstown, Pa.
That evening while honas speaking abont
the finding of tho llibletoa friend, the ques
tion was asked what name tbe Bible contains,
aud to the inquirer's utter amazement he
found tho Bible to belong to his wife's mother
who was drowned in tho flood. This gentle
man was 31r. John Wood, of Lawrenceville.
His wife is a daughter of the late Mrs. Davis,
of Johnstown, and the Bible had floated down
the river from the wrecked city. On tho samo
evening Mrs. Wood identified thp book and it
was receivcn by her as a legacy from her dead
mother, come to her in most providential
way. The Bible ran be seen by anyone at tbeit
