requested a conference with the officials of
the great labor organization, and it was
granted. About 10 o'clock Sheriff Jlc
Candles, after having had a talk with the
representatives of the firm of Carnegie,
Phipps & Co., drove up to the Amalga
lie Jiiftl Jumped In.
Here he found President Weihe, Secreta
ry Martin, Trustee James H. McNutt and
and several other leading members of the
organization. The situation was discussed
for a time, and the best means to prevent
bloodshed were the main features of the
conference. The Sheriff asked what themen
really considered essential, and President
"Weihe informed him, in verr emphatic lan
guage, that the scale as arranged by the
firm was unfair, or at least was so reearded
by all the workmen, and that their men
would not and could not work at these
wages under any circumstances.
"Tell me what I can do; I will do any
thing you say anything if it will prevent
trouble," said the Sheriff.
"The firm has denied us a conference, and
issued what its members term their ulti
matum," said President AVcihe. "We
hare nothing more to ask. The scale is un
fair, and we positively cannot accept it."
"If they will consent to a conference, and
agree to modify the scale, will you agree to
meet them and try to arrange a scale that
will be satistactory to both sides?" asked
"We ; iainly will; but, understand, wc
do not solicit any conference, but if they
are willing to meet us and talk the matter
over we will not refuse to do so," was Presi
dent "Weihe's response.
Why Tlicy Were to Wnlf.
After some further discussion of the mat
ter, the Sheriff said: "Wait here a few mo
ments, and I will bring you an answer."
Be ran down the stairs, and, jumping into
his buggy drove to the offices of Carnegie,
Phipps & Co. on Fifth avenue, and laid
the matter before Chairman Abbott and
other members of the firm. The conversa
tion that occurred cannot be given; but
the result was that the Sheriff drove back
to Amalgamated headquarters and invited
the officials to accompany him. They went
with him to the Carnegie office, where a very
earnest and grave consultation was held
abcut midnight. The company agreed to
make some concessions, and to hold another
conference. This was, for the interval, sat
isfactory, and the time was fixed for 0
o'clock in the morning. When this had
been accomplished the Sheriff departed,
hoping that matters would be satisfactorily
arranged, and that the mill would soon be
One of the most startling and important
matters that led to the concessions on the
part oi the Carnegie firm occurred, but was
kept an absolute secret, on Friday after
noon. The firm is cvidcntlv crowded with
orders at the Homestead mill, and some of
them mnst be filled at once. The firm has
signed the scale for the upper and lower
Union Iron Mills at Twenty-ninth and
Thirty-third streets, and thev are in opera
tion at the priceB fixed by the Amalgamated
Won't Roll n round of It.
In order to clear up the pressing orders
at the Homestead mill, the boss rollers in
the 20-inch mills of these two works Sam
"Waitneight and John Mills were ordered
to go on double turn Monday, presumably
on Homestead orders. These are the only
men in the mill who are competent to do
this work, and, as they are good Amalga
mated men, their answer was:
"We will not work a pound of steel on
Homestead orders, or on work to relieve
Homestead, until the trouble with the men
there is settled."
This, in addition to the exertions of the
Sheriff, had much to do with the granting
of the conference which was held yesterday.
The two boss rollers mentioned above are
, the best skilled workers in the Amalga
mated Association, and it will be almost
impossible to fill their places.
But there is one more fact, that started as
rumor, but was confirmed and clinched by
The DisrATCii Friday night, namely:
The Twenty-ninth and Thirty-third street
Union Mills of the Carnegie firms, with
their nearly C,000 workmen all tgld, were to
be ordered out, and the preliminaries of the
edict had actually gone forth. The Amal
gamated officials were as earnest as any of
their subordinates in determining that, if
this was to be a fight to the death, one side
or the other would have to "die game."
How They Looked Upon It.
The Amalgamated leaders considered it as
much a release from their union mills
scale for Carnegie to refuse his other Am al
gamated employes justice, as it would have
been had he broke faith or refused to recog
nize any single department obligation in a
mill where the scale was actually signed.
They had, therefore, arranged to have the
6,000 Pittsburgers come out and join their
Homestead brethren for "a fight to the
All this, be it 'borne in mind, had taken
place prior to Sheriff McCandless suggest
ing and seeking the conference which the
Amalgamated Association leaders did not
feel at liberty to solicit. That midnight
conference resulted in an immediate truce,
pending further parley so great and com
plete a truce that the Philadelphia thugs
and Pinkerton guards en route some of
them at the very doors of Homestead were
halted and told to await further orders
before moving another step.
What happened yesterday is well and

columns. But the facts plainly narrated

what brought the'whole truce about They

SCEKES AT HOMESTEAD.
The Striker on the Alert They Are Armed
and I'rrparcd to Flcht No Person
Allowed to Enter the Mill.
The streets of the busy little borough of
Homestead presented more than its usual
Saturday night appearance last evening.
Upon every street corner, in every store and
shop, around the railroad stations, and even
at Kenney's picnic grove, where several
thousand people went to give themselves up
to the pleasures of the woods, the strike was
the one subject of conversation. Despite
the warnings that have been placed in all
conspicuous places against talking of the
affair, the conflict between labor and capi
tal is of such momentous importance to the
people there, that they could no more keep
from talking of the strike than they could
from drawing their breath. Every man
would ask his neighbor, "Will the
conference this afternoon settle the
Btrike?" The reply would be accom
panied by a doubtful shake of itlie
head, as it they thought a settlement could
not be made. The women discussed it
among themselves, and told each other of
their plans for the future. One woman who
is the mother of about nine children and
whose husband makes about $1 per day,
said she would cut down her Saturday
night purchases to about one-half what they
had lormerly been.
Will nay Cbcnpcr Itlent.
Instead of having a' 53 roast of beef for
to-day's dinner, she said she would pur
chase something cheaper in anticipation of
her husband's long siege of idleness. This is
but one of the many ways the wives of the
strikers have begun to economize. They
do not anticipate defeat, but are providing
against any possible contingency.
When it was learned this morning that a
conference between the representatives of
Carnegie, Phirjps & Co. and the officials of
the Amalgamated Association was to be
held, so'me predicted a speedy settlement of
the trouble. When the telephone message
from The DisrATCH office cameat 8o'clock,
to the effect that the conference had not ad
journed yet, it was generally conceded that
both sides were obstinate, and neither one
would yield to the other. At 9 o'clock no
word .had been received from those who
went down to attend the meeting, and all
hopes of settlement were given up.
A more determined looking body of men
than those who gathered around the various
railroad stations, awaiting the arrival of
trains, would be hard to find in West
ern Pennsylvania. The writer went up
on the 2 o'clock train. He had no sooner
stepped from the car until he was covccd
by half a dozen pairs of eyes and his every
movement watched. It was at Munhall
station, where the upper gate leading into
the mill yard is located. When tne train
hove in sight fully 200 men gathered around
the platform. They seemed to spring up as
If by magic, and took their positions in
front of the gate.
No Blnck Sheep Wanted.
One man got off the train who looked as
if he wanted to be a "black sheep." About
two dozen men formed a circle about him,
and began to ply him with questions. At
first he could not give a good account of
himself, and had it not been for the cool
ness of some of the strikers he would have
been harshly dealt with.
Nearly every one of the men are armed,
and their looks indicate too plainly, that
anybody who trifles with them will come to
grief. They do not know anything about
military tactics, and have no leader, yet
each one thoroughly understands what his
This evening one of the strikers got several
decks of playing cards, and placed one card
in the hat of every man present. The lead
ers were given the face cards, and consider
able joking was done about the "badces,"
as the cards were called. The men who got
club cards immediately proceeded to arm
themselves with hickory or pine clubs to
strike a combination. The men who re
ceived diamond cards said they would let
Andrew Carnegie wear the diamonds for
them. The strikers are still wearing the
cards in their hats and will keep ' them as
relics of the strike.
Yesterday afternoon, a committee com
posed of the employes of the firm and the
new special policemen of the town,
visited all the saloon keepers in the borough
and requested them to close at C o'clock.
The requst was made upon the ground that
the men who were idle might become in
toxicated and cause trouble with the
strangers who were coming into the town.
Tho Saloons Closed.
The saloon keepers closed their places of
business, and there was not one drunken
man on the streets last night. The saloons
were closed without a moment's warning,
and as a result, the drinking population of
the town were compelled to go thirsty for
one night. Druggist Stenger had a thirsty
crowd waiting upon him all night, but to
their plaintive appeals he returned a heart
less negative reply. Physicians' prescrip
tions were at a premium, as lew of them
could be secured.
The strikers are still looking for the
Pinkerton thugs who were supposed to be
on their way to Homestead. The warm
weather yesterday will not be a marker to
the reception tbey will get when they come
upon the ground. It was even betting
among the strikers last night that the
"Pinks" would not come upon the ground
at all. Scouts have been out scouring for
them, but up until 9 o'clock last night they
had not appeared in sight.
Wntchlnff for the Finks.
It was expected that they would sneak
into the town about midnight, and an extra
lockout was kept. At a late hour last night
no word had been received about them, and
nothing definite can be learned of the men
coming from Indianapolis.
Hugh O'Donnell, President of one of the
local unions, and a member of the Confer
ence Committee, received a telegram from
Pittsburg to-day to the effect that employ
ment agents Dorner and Geisler had tele
graphed to Cumberland, Md., for more men
to go to Homestead. The telegram was
passed around, and the different committees
were put on the alert for the expected men.
The effigy placed on a freignt car at Mun
hall station, and made of, the clothes left
behind by some of the men who went there
on Thursday to take the places of strikers,
attracted considerable attention from the
passengers in passing trains yesterday.
The figure had been pierced with
Dozens of Bullet Holes.
and was cited as an example of what would
happen to any one who attempted to go into
the mill yard. There was not one man who
made the attempt during the whole day.
The only life seen inside the mill yards are
watchmen who sit behind the gates and
and look out at the passers by. To the
cheery cry of "Watchman, what of the
night?" one ot them replied, "Strike."
At 9 o'clock a heavy pelting rain set in
and drove the people of the town to shelter.
The men on guard faithfully stood to their
posts and were drenched to the skin. They
would not get under cover, fearing that in
an unguarded moment somebody would take
advantage of them.
Joseph Schwab, a brother of C. M.
Schwab, manager of the works, has been
appointed foreman of the 28,23 and 10-inch
mills. Taylor Aldrice bus been made fore

The Window Glnssworkers Pass Some
There was no session of the Window Glass
workers' Convention yesterday aiternoon.
The convention adjourned at noon and will
reassemble at 9 o'clock Monday morning.
At the morning session yesterday several re
ports of committees were acted upon, and
the following resolutions scoring Carnegie,
Phipps & Co. were adopted:
Resolved, That we, the Window Glass Work
ers of America, in convention assembled, do
hereby express our earnest sympathy for the
striking employesof Carnegie, Phipps & Co.,at
Homestead, in their struggle against tyranny
and oppression, with our best wishes for their
success and be it further
Resolved, That, it is the sense of this conven
tion that these, their employers, are resortin g
to means for accomplishing their unworthy
objects that aro unmanly, unjust and unlaw
ful. First by seeking to blind tho eye of the pub
lic and workingmen by their so-called generos
ity and benevolence in building libraries and
conservatories, ostensibly to benefit the work
ingman but really to blind the public eye to
their glaringly unjust reductions of wages by
which they are reimbursed ten-iold, rcnderlng
their professions of generosity and benevolence
a bollow mockery. Second, by sending to
Homestead men whom they have armed for
the purpose of provoking to violence would-be
peaceable citizens, and thus endangering the
peace of the community, lie it farther
Resolved, That we condemn such methods as
tyrannical, unjust and unlawful, and wo de
nounce the men who resort to tnem, together
with snch as Emil Dorner. and all who from
mercenary motives will aid and abet in such
unmanly and brutal measures. And be it fur
ther Resolved, that we recommend to the Amal
gamated Association of Iron and Steel Work
ers that they prosecute in the courts the perpe
trators of such outrageous acts, and employ
such othermeans as maybe necessary to secure
victory for the right. And we hereby assure
them that in their struggles against the tyrant
tbey nill always have our hearty sympathy,
and, when needed, such substantial aid as It
may be in our power to render them.
IS IT A K. OP L. EESCGE ?
Orcnnlzcd Labor DelicTcd to Be Comblolnc
The following special telegranJ frem
Philadelphia last evening has an impoant
bearing ou the strike:
Tbc report that a meeting of the Executive
Board of tho Knights of Labor had been called
and was to be held in Chicago on Tuesday
next, has provoked not a littlo comment In
labor circles, but the reasons for holding the
conference anywhere except at the head
quarters in this city aro shrouded in
mystery. It is thought by some ;hat the
change was made becauso of some trouble
in the organization that can best be settled In
Chicago. A telegram from Scranton says that
General Master Workman Powderly positively
refuses to bo interviewed on the subject, re
ferring his questioner to the Broad street
office of tho order, where, he said, all proper
information could be obtained.
General Secretary Hayesstarted this morning
for Chicago, and before leaving declined to be
interviewed. At headquarters tho same ret
icence prevailed. Chief Clerk Kiernan, when
asked to give a reason for the holding of the
board meeting in Chicatro, said: "I haven't
the slightest idea why the change was made,
and could not tell you if I knew all abont
It. Is that plain enough?" The same difficulty
was encountered when an effort was made to
ascertain whether or not Mr. Powderly will
sail for Europe on the 24th instant, with a dele
gation of Knights of Labor. No one, however,
would deny the report, and It is safe to say that
such are his Intentions.
Tho impression prevails that Important mat
ters are to come before the board at Chicago,
but it is impossible to get even an inkling as to
what tbey arc, though the trouble at the Car
negie works is Dretty certain to form the sub
ject of considerable disenssion.
PITTSBURGERS GET THERE.

crs In Atlantic City.
The following special telegram from At
lantic City is self-explanatory:
John M. Kelly and a delegation of Pitts
burgers arrived here to-day to take part In the
Ureen Bottle Blowers' fight. The whole day
was spent discussing the question of the
amalgamation of the two districts, covering
the United States and Canada. The session
was stormy and ended without result. The two
assemblies are wider apart to-night than they
were at the beginning of the convention. Tho
anti-Campbell men are kicking vigorously
against outside interference, which they claim
is coming from Kelly and others from the
Eastern district. The auestion will probably
not be settled before the latter part of next

The purchase of the large plants of the
Leisenrings by the H. C. Frick Coke Com
pany's still the subject of discussion among
other operators. The Frick concern has
taken charge of the business, but the offices
of the company at the corner of Sixth ave
nue and Liberty street will not be aban
doned until August 1. It is understood
that General Manager Hyndnian will be re

only important firms in this city that have
not signed are A. M. Byers & Co. and the
Pittsburg Force and Iron Company.

The pure water well presented to the Al

was completed at 8 o'clock last evening,
and water of the pures quality was found
in the mountain-white pebble "rock. It al

Continuing, Father Carroll said: "The
Vatican, the home of the Pope, is filled with
pictures of art, statuary, etc., and is, as you
know, a beautiful palace. He also has an
inclosure with a vineyard, zoological gar
den, fountains, etc., in it; but he has Tittle
comparatively of that which he had before
the different invasions.
"After tbe audience with the Pope we
spent the time rambling around the city
viewing the ruins. One day we visited the
catacombs some way from the city, where
the Christian dead were buried and the peo
ple worshiped, when they were oppressed
in pagan times, and not allowed to worship
God in public. We went down steps, deep
into the ground.
A VISIT TO THE CATACOMBS.
The soil appears to be a brown clay, petri
fied, but it can be picked out and .excava
tions made with tools. The passages lead
at right angles, and niches are placed in the
walls for coffins. After tbe dead had been
buried the place was sealed up and a slab of
marble, affixed with the name of
the one buried and, perhaps, a
request for prayers. In places were paint
ings and frescoes and rooms for mass. You
could see the bones in some ot the niches,
but most of them had been rilled by differ
ent conquerors of the "Eternal City" in
search of treasure, supposed to have been
buried with tbe dead.
"I saw the maritime prison where an
angel came to Peter, tapped him on the
shoulder and he shook off his chains. I
was also shown a place outside of
Home where, after Peter's escape
(as tradition goes) he met Jesus
who appeared to him and walked with him.
Peter asked the Lord where he was going
and he said he was goine to be crucified
again. Peter understood the meaning of the
Savior's words and returned into captivity
and was crucified with his head down. This
is a tradition of Christ's appearance after
his ascension not chronicled in the Bible.
Many of these traditions have been handed
down from generation to generation, but
never appeared in the Bible.
THE TOMB OF PETER.
"I also saw the tomb of Peter, which was
entered bv the Saracens, in search of treas
ure, but they were misled in finding the
body of Peter, as the sepulcher has a false
tomb into which they went.
"It is surprising how the French and
Italians can live without fire in winter,
hardly any being used except for cooking
purposes. Their houses, generally built of
stone, are very damp. We would" consider
it dangerous to live in such dampness, and
it is a wonder it did not make us all sick.
"The churches in Home are magnificentin
their interior adornment, but the best of
them, not excepting St. Peter's are old and
squalid looking on the exterior. It is un
accountable to me why they allow the
exterior of their churches to remain in
such contemptible neglect. At every
church door and every corner vou
encounter begcars with outstretched
hands and entreating voices, seeking alms.
Everybody that looks at you. there think
that they have undoubted right to get
money from you, and that you have come to
their country simply to throw it around."

Mnjor George- V. Recti, ol Batler, Cele
brates Ills 66th Birthday.
Last evening Major George W. Reed, of
Butler, with all his children, except Mrs.
James T. Lane, of Davenport, Iowa, cele
brated his 86th birthday at tbe residence of
his son, N. P. Heed, Esq., Shadyside.
Major Reed is the father of the present pro
prietors of the Commercial Gazette, N. P.,
G. "V. and J. P. Reed, all of whom were
raised in Butler, the present residence of
Major Becd. This anniversary has been
celebrated yearly in this city at the resi
dence of one of his sons, and is a day of
great rejoicing, and no one enjoys it more
than the old gentleman himself. "We say
old, but mean only in number oi years, not
in looks, for certainly Father Time has
dealt gently with the Major. To see him
and his ways, one would take him for a
well preserved man of 50 years instead
Major Heed, of Butler is the best known
man in that county, and there is not a man,
woman or child in Butler now but knows
the Major. He is the oldest living person
in Butler town, and the oldest but one in
the whole county. He was born in Bedford
county, near Bedford Springs, in 1803,
July 14, and removed to Butler town in
1824, where he has resided, with the excep
tion of nine months ever since. In early
life he carried on the harness and saddlery
business. He has held the office of Sheriff
and Treasurer. He enjoys the title
ot Major because for a great ,; many
years in early times, when the militia was
in force he was appointed by the Governor
Major, and drilled all the troops that met
twice a year in the counties of Butler, Law
rence and Armstrong. The Major was al
ways a military man, and yet is the grand
martshal at all the reunions in his town. He
alsoVJeads the military on Decoration Day.
There is perhaps no one who can sit a horse
any better than he to-day; and as for walk
ing, last fall he concluded he would like to
have another squirrel hunt, as had been his
custom irTiVw- earlier life; so he invited one
of his sons, ant with a party of hunters
started out. At .'.he end of the day he had
bagged as much game as any member ot the
party, and it takes good man to climb the
rough hills of Butler county, specially fol
loTing a dog; but it showed what vitality

Mr. T. D. Messier the Victim of a Very
Serious Paralytic Attack.
A NOTED P. B. E. OFFICIAL
In a Critical Condition, Bat the Physicians
HE IS HEAD OF MAN! CORPORATIONS
At a lat honr last evening inquiry was
ade at the Fifth avenue residence of T. D.
, Messier, Third Vice President and Con-
trailer of the Pennsylvania Railroad, as to
his condition. The whole community was
shocked vesterday morning by the rapidly
circulated information that Mr. Messier had
been dangerously prostrated by paralysis,
due to extreme heat, and was believed to be
It will gratify his countless friends to
learn that, though in a critical condition,
Drs. Fleming and Hamilton express hope of
saving the life of their distinguished pa
tient. He had partially regained conscious
ness and was being made as comfortable as
For several days Mr. Messier had suffered
severely from the extreme heat, but had in
sisted upon attending to his multifarious
duties as usual. "When he left his home for
His office yesterday morning he complained
of a feeling of lassitude. He had not been
in his offiee quite an hour when a clerk, en
tering to present some documents for signa
ture, found Mr. Messier lying forward upon
his desk moaning in agony and nearly un
conscious. Ko time was lost in summoning
Dr. Joseph N. Dickson, who did all he
could with the aid of the employe until Drr.
Fleming and Hamilton arrived. Under the
joint efforts of the three physicians Mr.
Messler's sufferings were alleviated, and his
oldest son had been commuuicated with and
had arrived. Aftera consultation it wsde
termined to remove the patient to his home.
An ambulance was secured from the Homeo
pathic Hospital and he was placed therein,
and the long drive to his home via East
Liberty, in order to get tbe benefit of the
smoothness of the tracks, was safely ac
complished. Mr. Messier complained of
pain, however, during the whole ot the
KESTI2TG MORE EASILY.
He was resting easily last night, and Drs.
Hamilton and Fleming, who had been in
constant attendance upon him, professed
hopes of saving his life, although admitting
the critical nature of the case. Mr. Messier
showed recognition of the voices of his fam
ily, who were all present, his son Eugene
arriving on a special train from Cresson at
8 o'clock last evening, having been
summoned bv telegraph. Always near
sighted, Mr. Messier was utterly unable to
see tbe faces of his family, and his right eye
was affected by the paralytic stroke, it
being upon that side of the body. Neither
of the attending physicians would express
a positive opinion as to his recovery, but
both seemed to have strong hopes of pulling
him through the very unexpected attack.
His family state that Mr. Messler's health
has been very robust, and it is well known
in railroad circles that he had an immense
capacity for hard work.
For many years Vice President Messier
has been a guiding spirit in the manage
ment of "the greatest railroad in the
world." He was bocn in May, 1833, and is
now in his 57th year, and his ancestry is
one of the famous old-line Dutch families
which settled Manhattan Island. The
family tree traces seven generations in
America, and Attorney RemsenV. Messier,
eldest son of the stricken man, has recently
been elected a member of the Holland So
ciety, of New York, an organization con
trolled by the De Puyters, Van Rcnsalaers,
and other ancient families of New York
HIS CAEEEP. SKETCHED.
Mr. Messier was born in Somerville, N.
J., and received an excellent education ac
cording to tbe ideas of half a century ago.
His first railway experience was a. a clerk
under the senior Fisk, in the New York and
Lake Erie Railroad, the service of which
corporation he entered in 1853, while yet
below his majority, in the capacity of a
clerk in the Auditor's office, where he im
bibed a thorough knowledge of railroad
financial affairs. In 1856, he became Au
ditor of the Fort "Wayne Railroad,
under the famous old railroader,
Judge Hannah, of Fort Wavne, Ind.
In the period of 1866 to 1871 he acted
as assistant to the President of the Fort
"Wayne Company. In the latter year his
eminent financial abilities were recognized
by his election as Controller of the Pennsyl
vania Company, and his election to the
Third Vice Presidency of the Pennsylvania
Company in 1883 was an honor well merited
by the recipient. He has acted in the double
capacity ever since, and has been one of the
most valued officials of the road, holding
identical positions on the Pittsburg, Cincin
nati and St. Louis Railroad.
It is ttated that the family name was
originally Metzalaer, borne originally by a
fine old native of Holland, who sought these
shores in the seventeenth century. The
name has been gradually changed into
Among other official positions held by
Mr. Messier are the following: President of
the St. Louis, Vandalia and Terre Haute,
the East St. Louis and Carondelet, the
Northwestern Ohio, the Cincinnati and
Muskingum Valley and Ohio River Con
necting Railroad Companies, the Newport
and Cincinnati Bridge Company.and Chair

WILL THEY REVISE ll?
Judges Ewlnir and Olasee Are Asked to
Amend theLlst of Retail Licenses What
Jndffc Ewins; Sajs of It.
Judges Ewing and Magee, sitting in
Common Pleas Court No. 2 yesterday, were
presented with a petition asking them to
grant retail licenses' for 250 more saloons.
The petition was presented by Attorneys
John S. Robb, C; F. McKenna, Josiah
Cohen and C. C. Montootb. It was in be
half of S. Berg, Thomas Delaney, B. Galli
sath, Wm. Ruckeisen and 100 other retail
dealers who had been refused license by
Tudge "White, The petition set forth that
all tbe petitioners had been granted licenses
in 1888, and obeyed the law; that they all
have invested in their business the savings
of their lifetime, all of which may be swept
away; further, that the recent decision of
the Supreme Conrt will establish a large
trade of furnishing liquor in quarts, etc.,
which would iucrease drinking in families
and clubs. In conclusion, tbey asked the
Court to revise tbe retail list and grant at
least 250 more retail licenses.
Mr. Robb stated that they wished the
Court to review the testimony taken before
Judge White in the License Court, and
grant the licenses to the best of the appli
cants. Judge White, Mr. Robb said, nad
stated that, in view pf the Supreme Court
decision, there should be at least 500 retail
Mr. Cohen and Mr. McKenna supported
Mr. Robb fn his assertions.
Judge Ewing finally said that he would
take the petition and consider it, but he did
not see how he could handle the business of
the Quarter Sessions Court when the judges
of Common Pleas No. 1 were presiding in
it. It was argued that this would merely
be a revision of tho work that they had per
formed in the Quarter Sessions.
To this Judge Ewing said that Judge
"White had lett no opening for a revision of
the retail list as he had of the wholesale, but
tney would consider the matter.

ON ELECTRIC ME1
An Electrician Expatiates Upon Elec
EYOLYED BY A P1TTSBUKG EXPERT.
It Seems That Pittsburg Gets Her Incan
descency Tery Cheap.
WHT GAS METEES EON PAST ASD SLOW
"All the new customers of the local elec
tric light company incandescent noir
come in on the meter basis," remarked a
local electrician yesterday. "Many of the
old customers are having electric meters
put in, believing that they thereby will be
able to save money, as compared with the
old system of charging based upon the
number of lights burned.
"The electric meter now in use was in
vented by a Pittsburger in January last,
and are being manufactured at the
rate of 400 a week and sold in all citiea
where there exists an incandescent plant.
A large order is being filled for London,
England, and for Brazil. It is the first
commercial registering meter ever made
which the consumer can read and under
stand. The system of measurement is very
simple. The standard is the "ampere," the
amount of electricity burnt by a 16-candle
power light in an hour. The meter gives
numerals, hundreds and thousands, and
although exceedingly delicate as to mechan
ism requires no work to keep it in order,
and the agents vho turn in and collect bills
cannot possibly make a misUke,as the plain
figures arc before the eyes of the consumer
all the time.
"The lamp-hours, as the amperes are
called, are so plain that a customer can
economize in consumption to please him
self. Another point is that the electric cur
rent is always even, as is also the registra
tion of the meter. The local price per
"ampere," or lamp-hour, is 5 mills the
cheapest price, I believe, in the country.
In Baltimore the price is 6y mills, and in
New York and other places where coal is
dear, the price runs from 7 mills to 1 cent.
IIOW BATES ABE BASED.
"The rates are always based upon the
local price of coal, whatever it may be.
The company prefers the meter system, as it
inculcates the principle of economy and
checks wasteful or careless burning of the
supply. The Edison mechanical meter is a
much more cumbersome affair, its measure
ments being made with a system of metal
plates which require a regular laboratory
in connection with each plant, and the ser
vices of an expert electrician to analyze the
bills. The inventor will make a fortune out
of the device on account ot its easy applica
bility. Yes, the customer must pay for the
meter, but he can easily save its cost in
comparison with the former system.
"Referring again to the system of meter
measurement, I wonder if consumers of
articial gas know why it is that the very
quarter they Lave fondlv flattered them
selves they were careful and economical
in its use. the bill bas the longest beak. It
is a very simple matter, indeed, when fully
understood. The gas that is the heaviest in
illuminating properties, i. e., contains the
most hydro-carbon, turns the meter tho
slowest. So that the best quality of gas
registers very slowly in the meter.
"Gas companies are not often afflicted
with enlargement of the heart when it en
tails curtailment of the pocket, and the
general method is to turn in a modicum of
air, which not only lightens the gas, but
causes the meter to turn faster,
THUS CATCIIING THE COKSCMEB,
both on deteriorated gas, but in increased
registration of the meter. This method
works all right until the customer gets up
on his hind legs and kicks. In some cities
the air mixture racket is worked zealously
every alternate quarter."
The Government architect of the "United
States building at Buffalo was in Pittsburg
