r I- v U i ft I ITISAfOIDER Or a Miracle That Even .Any body Escaped ATTHEBEDPOND ACCIDENT Two Men Dead Last Night, But the Others Recovering. WHAT ENGINEER BROWNE SAYS. He Does Not Think the City Can Be Held Liable for the Men. BED POSD MAT IET BE MADE A PARK That ugly accident at the Bed Food, which resulted in several fatalities at an early hour yesterday morning, was very mi raculously affected in some of its results, in asmuch as the fire men, all at work in the sewer at the same time, were not all killed outright. Since the little dam was built on Center avenue, above the pond, a few weeks ago, and the water was carried off through a pipe the pond itself has been practically empty, and on that account the men were enabled to work in the fcewer. The hitter, connect ing with the SO or 40-foot "drop" at the pond, is about 100 feet long, and is ' laid parallel with Soho street This sewer, as most of the readers know, had been clogged up, and on that account the water, which could find no outlet, gath ered in the pond, but was kept pumped out until Saturday night's sudden and violent shower. During the last week the men in the sewer had been using several explosive charges, and had blown open the front of the sewer, and after the mouth had been laid bare the work of cleaning it out was r comparatively easy. On Saturday night there were the follow ing named men employed in the sewer: Joe McCarthy, Andrew McGregor, Robert Mc Munn, William McCIoy and Robert Daly. THE HEAVY RAIN, about 8 o'clock, had loosened a great deal of theabutment above the pond, and a large pool of water had formed immediately over the still partly closed, pond entrance of the sewer. At this point was the deep drop, and about 2 o'clock this drop caved in, and the water rushed wildly through it and the sewer. The men were all in there at the time, using a strong stream of water to clean the outlet from the opposite side. When the water came upon them they were all knocked down and car ried along with the stream. Billy McCIoy and Robert McMunn were carried about 300 feet, and then they got ashore in the ravfnc, which runs from Center to Fifth aveno.-. Both men were badly injured. Their bodies were bruised, and, from the amount of dirt, water and gravel which they had swallowed, they were nearly drowned. McMunn was taken to the Homeopathic Hospital, and, according to the physicians' account yesterday afternoon, the patient will recover. McCIoy was taken to his home, 21 Logan street, and Dr. Shaw was called to attend him. He was resting comparatively easy yesterday a'ternoon, and, it is thought, will get over his injuries. His daughter stated to a Dispatch reporter that her father had a presentiment on Saturday night that something would happen to him, and ex pressed the sense of tear before he went to work. SEEMINGLY MIRACULOUS. The other three men were carried down by the stream in the ravine as far as Fifth avenue, a distance of half a mile. They were all three found at the culvert there. Robert Daly was then dead; but McCarthy and McGregor, although they were uncon , scious, still breathed. McGregor was taken to the Homeopathic Hospital, and died at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. McCarthy was taken to the Mercy Hospital, and, from the last ac counts heard from there, he was "doing very well." That this man, after having been knocked against stones and thrown over rocks for a distance of about half a mile, and was not killed outright, simply affords pretty good evidence of the very nearest possible thing to a miraculous t escape. The inquest will be held on July 27, when the injured have sufficiently recov ered to testify. "The Red Fond sewer is open at last, but the achievement was too dearly bought," was the remark made by Mr. William R. Browne, of the Bureau of Engineering and Surveys, when a Dispatch reporter called to see him last night at his residence, the Fast End Hotel. Then he said: "It was 9 o'clock last night when I was at the pond to see how the men were getting along with their work, and I had not the slightest idea that there was auy danger of such an accident, or I would certainly have prohibited the men from pro ceeding with their work. There were cer tainly not more than about A. HUNDRED CUBIC FEET of water in the pond, and that quantity i could not harm anybody working in the sewer. In fact, I have all alone observed the greatest care and caution with the men. Of course that rain last night was an un usually heavy shower, and all the water from the surrounding hills must have ac cumulated within a very short time." "Will the citv be liable for the lives lost?" "I do not know anything about that. I do not see why, because negligence cannot be charged against us." "What will be done with the pond now, after the sewer is opened?" "The first thing we shall do is to make a wooden sewer under the street, and then a tnore substantial one. That sewer will be right through the pond, and the latter will be filled up." PERHAPS A PARK. "Will you make a park out of the place?" "I don't know, that is a matter which restsentirely with Mr. Bigelow; but, in my opinion, better ukc could not be Jiade out of the place. The location is excellent, and the whole pond could be bought very cneap. "I was told of the accident about 4 o'clock this morning, and the news gave me such a strange shock as I have never experienced in my lile. When the man came to my door and said what had happened, the blood circulation stopped in both my arms Irom the elbow to the wrist for abont three or four minutes, and when I felt the blood rush back into my veins, the sensation was very peculiar." Ills Costly -Sleep. 'William M. Hinton, an Italian in the wholesale fruit business at No. 7 Diamond street, yesterday afternoon opened up the door of his store to get a little fresh air. He then retired to a back room to read and fell asleep. While he slept someone entered the store and stole $130. The police were notified of the occurrence. Drowned In the Hirer. Coroner McDowell was notified last night that James Deller, aged 28 years, living on the Butler plank road near the Rising Sun House, had been drowned in the Allegheny river, yesterday afternoon, below Pine creek station. The body was recovered and on inquest will be held this morning. THEY 4YERE NOT ARRESTED. Tbe Slot MncIilncH Worlitd Without I- dfc O. Interference speculation on ibe Attitude of the Lencue Soda Water Pales. So far as could be learned yesterday the Law and Order League did not arrest any of the slot .machines for performing worldly labor on the Sabbath or for vice and im morality, as had been more than indicated by the exclusive publication of an intention to do so in Saturday morning's Dispatch. An effort was made to find Mr. H. M. Black, agent of the slot machines, hut his office at Eleventh street and Fenn avenue was not open nor did he seem to be in the city. The machines were merrily at work all day and did a thriving businesi, most of them proving greatly inadequate to the demand. It is possible that the Law and Order League was deterred from proceeding sum marily against the machines by the univer sal chorus of derision that greeted the pub lication of their intention. An attorney who has given the subject some thought stated last night that the league might be hesitating on account of certain nice legal points involved in tbe matter. One of these is the fact is that in nearly every in stance the agent of tbe machines has placed them upon private property, by and with the consent of the respective owners. Re moval of the machines would doubtless be construed as trespass under the circum stances. There were two thirst-quenchers in active operation yesterday. The Federal street druggist who has announced an intention of keeping open on Sunday indefinitely was doing an immense business during the heat of the day, but not so much during the rainstorm of last evenimr. A stand in front of the Casino Museum sold every sort of soft drink vigorously, and no one seemed to be able to tell just who the proprietor is and who will be "seen" by the Law and Order League. THEIK W0EK SPREADING. Electric Workers In Other Cltlen Are Organ izing Unions. The organization formed in Pittsburg by the electrical workers a month ago, known as the Fittsburg Flectrical Union No 1, promises to become national. Applications for copies of the constitution, by-laws, etc., have in from several parts of the country, and charters have been taken out for New York and Kansas City, where unions are now being formed. The objects of the new organization are largely social and educational. The Fitts burg union is forming a library of books bearing on the work of the members, and a collection of electrical appliances will be added soon. The advantages to the public from this new order will be in having elec trical work done bv skilled men, as none others are admitted. The union in Fitts burg has already gotten an advance of 25 cents a day for its members employed by one local company. DAD NO USE FOE THEM. Four Cnrlondu of 1'lnkerton Men Were Ride-Trucked Nenr tbe City. For the past few days a number of Pink erton guards have been quietly side-tracked at Sixteenth and Thirty-second streets. There was one carload at the former place and three at the latter. They were intended for Homestead, but will never get there in the capacity of detectives. Altogether there were about 200 men or more quartered in these places ready to move at the firm's orders. . The three carloads at Thirty-second street were hired in New York. Ths gang rather enjoyed the loaf, and frequently le!t the cars and mingled anion? the people in the city. Later they were removed to a point between BraSdock and Walls station, where they were lying last night. They will be sent back Fast. THE EA1N LAST NIGHT Filled Up Cellars and Mopped Travel on the Citizens' Line. The rainstorm last night caused a block on the Citizens' Traction line for over half an hour. The water washed mud and sand down Penn avenue and partially filled the vault at tbe power house near Thirty-fourth street. A half hour was required to clean it out, and about 30 cars were blocked for that length of time. At the corner of Penn avenue and Thirti eth street tbe water covered the streets to a depth of about. 2 feet. It ran doTn the hillside, and Thirtieth street and a part of Fenn avenue were converted into small rivers. All the cellars in the vicinity were flooded. A number ot cellars were also flooded at Twenty-seventh street in the same manner. NOW FOR HAREISBUKG. Abont 500 Junior Olpchnnics WIN Attend the Die Parade. About 250 members of the Jr. O. U. A. M. on the Southside will leave for Harris burg on the special train over the Pennsyl vania Railroad at 10 o'clock this morning. The representatives from the Southside Council to the Harrishurg State Convention are A. W. Rossiter and Robert Walters; from Smoky City. Thomas Wallace and Louis Smith; Iron City, Edward Fastorius and Fred Kramer; Acme, D. L. McDon ald and Alderman C. E. Succop; Hill Top, Henry Kalkhol, William Penn, William Kane and Peter Soffel, Jr. West End and Grandvicw Councils also send two repre sentatives each. OBJECTS TO NON-CITIZENS. Sir. Smytbe Wants Only Americans to Go With II I m to Paris. A. B. Smythe, of Allegheny, who was in dorsed by a number of organizations to rep resent the marble, stone and tile workers at the Paris Exposition with the Scripps League, said yesterday that he would not accept the appointment unless all the men elected are native-born Americans. Mr. Smythe's knowledge of the men is limited as yet, but he has been led to believe that some of tbe men selected are not citizens. He said that he thought America should be represented by Americans, and unless this was the case throughout, he would decline to serve. ON THE SOUTHSIDE. The Reopening of the Bottle Business In creases the Arrests. More arrests were made on the Southside on Saturday night than for a long time. Judge Brokaw disposed of 36 cases yester day morning. The increase is said to be due to tbe opening of the jug and bottle business. Robert Bowen spent his money for whisky and abused his family. He was sent to the workhouse for GO davs. T0UNG FDIT0N KILLED. His Father, Dr. Fulton, Is Notified of His Son's Death on tbe Its 11 road. Word was received in Allegheny yester day that Charles B. Fulton,'aged 23 years, a nephew of Rev. Dr. Fulton, ot the Fourth U. P. Church, had been accidentally killed by the cars at Glencoe, O. The telesrram stated that the accident occurred on Satur day night, but no particulars, were given. Tbe young man was well known in Alle gheny. Dr. Fulton will leave for Gleucoe to-day. III. Brother Killed. Frederick Davfs, brother of Manager Harry Davi, of the London Theater, was killed by a train on the Pennsylvania Rail road at Johnstown yesterday morning. f s FUN NICER IRAK FISH ! That's Why the Fishing Clnba Only Bait for the Former. SOME SCENES FROM EXPERIENCE. Camp Up the Allegheny Where Ion Can't Get Fish on Friday. JUST WHAT THE THING LOOKS LIKE. ISHERMEN'S yarns have, from i the time of Jonah land his monarch ' mascot of the deep, been spun out so re gardless of all that the ordinary mortaj in his rational moments could conceive, that great latitude has 'come to be conceded to the men with nets, hooks, lines or little brown jugs of bait. But, with all the stories they tell, these modern fishermen and their actual lives in camp are not at all well known by him who hasn't "been there." The prose and poetry that always blend in camp life are mixed by or for the fisherman, or, more proprly, clubman, in about tbe same proportion as Old Monongahela Rye and iresh Mononga hela water are mixed by him who appreci ates the genuine qualities of the former, and "never believes in mixing drinks anv way." From this it is not to be inferred, by any manner ot means, that there is no oil on the troubled waters of a fishing camp. There is. The only fact to be impressed by the prose-poetry, Monongahela-Monon compari son is that the club fisherman goes out for prose, unmixed, and for his other com modities likewise, though poetry will, of course, creep in occasionally, as water will trickle under the edges of a tent sometimes, despite the best precautions. The poetry not only, but the picture ot an actual fish erman as well, has crept into the illustra tions for this article in just (hat way. A GREAT MANY OF THEM. Fifty-two of these clubs, with member ships varying all the way from a dozen to several hundreds, belong to and are cata logued under the United Hunting, Fishing and Camping Clubs Association of Western Pennsylvania. There is no other locality in America more prolific in this summer Be Will If ever Get a Bile. industrial line "line" is a good word, even it the club fisherman does bar it. To take a steamer up the Monongahela, and see the pretty pictures on the bluffs; the seemingly spotless tents, with camp-fire and lights throwing glintsathwart the scene; the fisher men on the shore, waiting for theirdaily con signment ot eighth-keg packages of bait from the city; to hear the songs they sing and watch their sportive ways, is to almost wish that you could be one ol them for a time, if there were any such thing possible as a bite or a nibble, or even anything more tangi ble about camp than bait, to remind you that all of these are Simon Peters, and have gone a fishing. ' Above sounds of the steamboat, beyond the swish ot the waters and the radiating plash of the river as it kisses the sands on the shore, you can hear, in measured ac cents, the notes of the song: We are tenting to-nigbt On the old camp-ground, Or I I see the boat go 'round tbe bend; Good-bye, my lover, good-bye! And it makes you wish that you, too, going to try a tent just for to-night. -ACTUAL CAMP LIFE. A Dispatch reporter spent a day and night, the latter part of last week, at the encampment of the Irene Fishing Club on the Allegheny river, at Templeton, and took notes of what he saw and heard. The reporter arrived just in time for supper, with his appetite in such a condition that it could only be tickled into real activity by tarkling a good mess of fried bass. He was seated at a long table under a canvas fly with 18 jolly fishermen. "Bring on the fish," was the order given, and he was somewhat surprised and disap pointed when, from the far end of the. table, came tbe answer: "If you really want fish, you had better go to some other place than a fishing campl" The Irene camp is on the opposite side of tbe river from Templeton, on a little 300 foot plateau, about ten feet (frequently bare feet) above high water mark. The camp is well shaded by forest trees. Backofitisa hill, almost mountainous. To the left is a ravine, through which a small brook flows. In this latter all the rubbish of the camp is thrown, and is carried to the river, thus affording a good sanitary arrangement. At this encampment there are two sleep ing tents 12x18; also a storage tent, about the same size. A kitchen stands next to the latter. The next is a canvas table cov er. The camps also have a spring house and an ice house. The arrangements are com plete. The great bed-ticks, at one side, in each main tent, rest on such slats as the boughs of trees, placed across two large logs. On the other side of the canvas; boxes, trunks, chairs and various other arti cles are placed. The sleeping apartments will accommodate 30 or 35 people. In the storage tent the commissariat is complete. PROFESSIONAL HEADQUARTERS. The kitchen contains a No. 8 cookin? stove, and is open on all sides, thus giving the cook every opportunity of keeping cool while standing over a hot stove. To the right of this is the banquet hall, which is about 20 feet in length and 10 wide. The contents of this department of the encamp ment are a long stationary table and bench es. It is also open on all sides. While seated at this table plenty of fresh air and a grand view for a mile -up and down the river and of the hills across can be had. The next necessary appendage to", the can.p and what appears to be necessaryin all fishing camps is the springhouse. In this is kept a keg of beer on tap, with the faucet protruding. Ice and sawdust do their work well for it. The springhouse is a very neat stone structure, which was built two years ago, and is now covered with isl V THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, MONDAY, JULY. 15,- 1889. " ' V - PITTSBURG- moss. Next on the list, and what appears to be a new idea, is that of a large frame ice house, 20x40 feet. In it are 20 tons of ice and also 10 or 15 quarter barrels of beer and other lubricants. There are several lava tories scattered about and a dish washing department handy to the kitchen. Breakfast is served at 6 A. m. to those who are up in time for it. At this meal oatmeal gruel (they just call it "oats"), fresh beet, coffee, syrup, bread and butter and several other dishes are served; but, alas! no delicious fish. Milk is given to those who prefer it to coffee. There is plenty of life in the crowd at breakfast time, of course. "Say, Bill, pass me those oats, and don't take all day to do itl Chase that cream up this way," and many other such expressions are heard, etiquette hav ing been thrown to the winds. There is a great deal ot joking, and plenty of common sense talk also. At noon dinner for the hungry consists of turtle soup, if they have been so fortunate as to have secured "a turtle; frogs, when tbe green-bjeked croaker is captured (which, fortunately for him, does not happen very often), and other substantial. Supper is usually made up of mutton, chicken and a big variety of other things, with and without wings. MORE ABOUT FISH. The reporter insisted on knowing at which meal the fish were to be "dished up." The inquiry was answered by uproarious laughter. "Don't you ever have any of the finny tribe?" Another roar of merriment,but one fisher, more feeling than the rest for the reporter's sensitive nature, answered: "We have been here now two weeks, and in that time only three fishjiave been caught. Their combined weight would not It Looks Very Poetic be a pound. One was caught on the out line which we kept in the river, but as to how the other two were caught it's beyond my power to tell. Evidently they were dead. The only fishing tackle we have with us is the outline I spoke of and two turtle nets. We do no fishing or hunting td any extent. These are all the weapons we have, with the exception of an old blun derbuss, the capacity ot which to shoot I doubt very much." He pointed to the spring and ice houses, however, as indications of occupation. At the encampment in the way of pets are a dog endowed with the shamrock name of "Barney;" a mascot cat with three brand new kittens, all named "Irene," after tbe club; and a half dozen hens that cackle after depositing fresh, eggs for their kind owners, who can't eat fish. Athletic sports are indulged in with the aid. of dumbbells and Indian clubs. By this and other exercises the campers usually gain from 5 to 15 pounds in one season's outing.. After supper they all repair to the river, where about 20 minutes are spent in swimming. As to games, quoits and cards are the principal ones. Poker is usually the game, but no gambling is allowed. They have about two packs of cards for every member. They often have visitors, numbering as high as 30 or 35 at a time. Lady visitors often come, and drinking and cards take back seats then. Music is heard out on tbe river at night, principally from accordions and the cat. The camp is finely decorated with flags, 50 large ones being used. They are fastened around in the foliage, and present a very pleasing appear ance. The club's name is displayed on a mg sign aown on tne river nanic. FEW ARE KTER ENFORCED; The rules by which the club is regulated are not very strict. As soon as one member or visitor becomes visibly affected by drink ing, no more drinks will be given him under any pretext. No shooting or hunting is allowed in or around camp. This rule is not entorced, however. Any member who refuses to do work that the Captain, Adam Reed, orders done, is fined from 25 cents to SI. The work is divided among tbe mem bers, except tbe cooking, which is done bv a professional. The work to he done is simpiv the washing of the dishes and cloth ing. The campers all take good wear ing apparel along to be used on special occasions, such as Sundays. Slippers are used by all members of the organization, except when they go to the river bank. Un Sunday some of the fishermen attend church, and the others sleep or row on the river. No card playing j or oiner game is auowea on Sunday. THE Dispatch is scanned carefully everv day by all the clubmen. Other reading matter is also kept at the camp, such as popular novels. A rule not mentioned is thatagainst fight ing, which is strictly prohibited, but is sometimes indulged in, especially between the cook and the consumers of the cook's work.when the desserts, and especially the usn, are Drownea too muca. The ages of fishing club members range from 20 to 40 years, the Captain, stated. They usually support the club by assess ments and by holding picnics and bails. By so doing the'elub is enabled to leave on a four or six weeks' camping tour, expenses paid. The Captain further'said that it was his opinion that the reason Fittsburg and vicin ity have so many fishing clubs is because of the closing of the iron mills and glass works in the summer. THEY HAVE MUCH TIME. This gives those who work at furnaces nearly all the rest of the year an opportu nity of staying away longer than they other wise could. Mill men and glass workers prefer the country in the majority of cases, where they are together and are not bur dened with ' society." . It is a very cheap way of living; the aver age cost per day is 40 cents per man. Three gallons of coffee and about 20ipounds of meat are used daily in the Irene camp. The night the reporter spent in the camp was very cool, and the statement was made that it is always so. About ten clubs are camped on the river bank between Logansport and Mahoning. There are several at Logansport and at White Bock. A number of other clubs beside the Irene were visited, and tbe above affords a suffi cient description of the life of the fishermen (who do not understand bow to bait a hook) lrom many of Pittsburg's clubs. Tbe Maiden and Her Cat. An ancient maiden lady with long gray ringlets and a pretty white cat on her knee, was the center of attraction at the Union de pot last evening. The animal was very tame, and would place its face against the cheek of its mistress, fond of the lady's ca resses. More than one person smiled at the woman with the kitten. A Novel Trip. Mr. H. M. Haldeman, of the Oil City .DerrtcJ:, and two friends have just made a novel trip to Pittsburg from their city. A flstboat was comfortably fixed up, and was allowed to float tne whole distance. The trip was made in five clays. The parties will return by rail. We Mast Have a Ronton Cook. No applications have been received from Pittsburg for the position of teacher ot the Publio Cooking School. The Central Board has written to the Boston Normal Cooking School to obtain a teacher. No answer has yet been received. MONDAY, JULY. IS FLEMON THE MAN? South Carolina Officers Not Allowed to See Him Until To-Day, BUT THEI DESCRIBE THE DOMINIE. They Will Fick Him Oat From Among the Colored Prisoners. STEONG PEOOF FOUND IN TWO LETTEES The police authorities are pretty thor oughly convinced that John Yeldell, the minister, known as Rev. E. Flemon, wanted for murder in South Carolina, is the right man. United States Marshal Storm and Deputy Sheriff Thomas J. Lyon, who arc here to identify him and take him back for trial, have not yet seen him, but they both know him well and have described him so accurately that all doubt as to his identity has been removed. These officers stopped in Harrishurg on the way to Pitts burg and had the requisition papers signed by the Governor. This morning at 9 o'clock Yeldell will be brought into court, and confronted by the two men for identification. An exciting scene is expected. The minister is a bright fellow, and has ingratiated himself into the hearts of the colored people. His arrest is the general subject of conversation amorg his congregation, and many of them will not believe that their preacher is the man. Yeldell has given out that if he is taken back to South Carolina he will be killed, and this has stirred up the people of his own race. ONLY SEE LY2TCHI2TGS THERE. When Marshal Storm heard of this state menthe laughed tnd.said Yeldell would be given a fair trial, He stated that only six j negroes had been lynched in Edgewood county since the war, and thej brutally murdered an old man of 80 years. Three of the men, by the way, were ministers. Marshal Strom is a wealthy plantation owner, and he says Yeldell has picked many a bale of cotton for him. He said he would know him by his voice and walk, even if Yeldell were to paint his face, although he has not seen him since the murder was com mitted, four yearsVago. Ycldell's father, according to the Marshal, was a bad man, and gave the authorities more trouble than any colored man in the region. He says John YeldeH ia desperate fellow, and both officers admit tbey are afraid of him. They are supplied with a good pair oi nippers ana are wen armed. Another seemingly convincing proof ii tne possession ot tne omcers that xeldell the man wanted consists of two letters. written by a brother-in-law and the other. .xeiueii. oince tne murder was comm ted the officers had lost all trace of Yeldel' It was currently rumored among the n that he was in some school studying ft groes the ministry, Dut they couldu t Finally the brother-in-law got trouble, and him. some a letter from rev. e. fl: was found on his person. From certain facts in the letter tbev were led m to believe this was Yeldell. When the pft-eacher was arrested the answer to this letteVr from the brother-in-law was found. In tlhe letter the brother-in-law gives him someg information about the marriage of his sistjfer and fon'r of his companions implicated ifc tbe crime. The names in each instance ailfe given. The close connection and correspondence of these two letters soon convinced Inspector McAleese and Captain XMxn Sylvns that Flemon is the man wanted The murder for whicfh Yeldell was ar rested was committed in V886. One Sundar morning Yeldell, in cefnipany with four other negroes, visited tb i village of Farkb ville. Tbe men were si ipplled with short pistols, and got to drinti.ing a little, though Marshal Strom said y.he men were not drunk, and he never klnew John Yeldell to he intoxicated. About the time for church services to bezin the negroes with Yeldell rushed through the ftreets firing their pis tols into the air. Tlie next day A CHARGJh'oF RIOTKfO was made against tiem, and Deputy Sheriff J. S. Blackwell sttfirted out to look ibrthem. He chased them 11 day on Monday, and ran them dewn a cabin on Tuesday. "When he approar. hedt the door to make the arrests, he was hot i and killed by one of the men. Yeldell ft M, but his companions were and sentenced to be captured, convifcted banged. Anrther hearing was granted when it was shown that Yeldell did the shooting, and the sentence in their cases was changed to imprisonment. The MarshsAl said that when he tried to arrest Yeldell the latter drew a revolver which he dirJ not see, but one of his faithful colored bev'j who was engaged to Yeldell's sister grabb fedit,and saved his like. Yeldell has been a fugitive from justice ever since. He was r.-aised by ex-Governor Shepherd, of South OJaroliaa, and has a good educa tion. Thus Governor will be called as a wit ness at th! trial in South Carolina to tell what he lcnows about him. LOCAL ITEMS, LIMITED. Incident ta of n.

The whole case, he added, is now in the hands of the United States District At torney, and when that officer decides upon his mode of procedure, the case will go on. Mr. Homer L. McGaw, the prosecutor in the case, confirmed tbe statement of Mr. Evans, adding: This action of L. A. 300, in bringing the Englishmen to Jeannette has already opened the .flood gates of European Immigration, manufacturers claiming the same right to im port as did Jj. A. 300, Why. there is reported to Le about 30 non-union green bottle blowers now on ihip board who will arrive this week. Tbey are being Imported here to make a uMon bottle factory in Illinois non-union; so at least m v informant rays, and I deem it reliable. Tbe Government authorities cannot act too soon in regard to the Jeannette affair. When tbe decision is made that neither trades unions nor manufacturers can import, this wholesale importation will stop. If tbe decision is in fa vor otL.A. SOU. then the Lord help the trades unions, for the Government won't! TBE FLINTS' CONTENTION. Interesting Details of borne of 'be fieportn Presented.

Some Wonderful Operations Performed bj Allegheny County Surgeons. J1UEDERS CAN BE GREATLY DECREASED Some clever sawbones in the Quaker City has succeeded in securing wide circulation for an item published in yesterday's Dis patch in reference to the operation of "in testinal resection," or the removal of a por tion of human intestines, and the snecessful joining of the separated ends. The ite m also stated that the operation in ques';on was the hrst ot its nature penornr jed ; Philadelphia, and that there wer1 -! about 30 instances of a similar "operation upon recotd. A aistingnisnea surgeon ojj th;s connty was interyiewed yesterday non tne subject ol abdominal surgery, suggested by the Philadelphia case. He said: "Philadel phia must be 'way;behir d the t;mes y tn:s report be wrrect Pitt bnrg and Allegheny X surgeons can iufirmtTi more extensive ex perience than the one referred to as an isolated case. There are by actual count 25 surgeons of thi3 county who have opened the abdomen. Three or four of them have per formed the operation from 10 to 23 times, and a resident specialist just recently per formed ' HIS HUNDREDTH OPERATION". "As to this particular operation of intes tinal resection, Dr. Sutton, of Allegheny, removed three inches of intestine from a patient in the spring of 1683, and I believe the lady patient was still living three years afterward. It is a delicate operation, hut it has been done scores of times by Pittsburg surgeons. "I wonder if the public knows that within a decade surgery has so advanced that any obscure disease in the abdominal regions can now be located and the cause of the disease removed. A sample case was treated in this city but two weeks since. The wife of a professional man of eminence had a mysterious disease which baffled any diagnosis after the ancient style of medical or surgical treatment. Finally an incision was made in the abdomen, the gall-bag was opened, and, through the latter, a number of stones were removed from the liver ducts. The patient has already recovered, and the case will receive great attention from the medical profession, as such an operation is almost without precedent. Among the re markable cases handled by Pittsburg sur geons within a few years, are diseases of every organ in the abdominal cavity, in cluding tbe entire intestinal canal. The spleen, gall-bag. liver, kidneys, and have all been treated, and with re markable minimization of fatalities. The ancient Cssarian operation has been re vived and improved, and at present both mother and child are frequently saved, whereas under the old method life was often sacrificed. A STARTLING STATEMENT. "One-half the murders of the present day could be prevented by the use of the ab dominal methods of surgery, that is if the wound was -in that region of the body. How? Simply enough. Gunshot or stab bing wounds to be fatal must sever either an artery or an intestine. If an artery is severed what is called internal bleedinz fills the stomach with blood, which de composes, causing peritonitis, and death follows in a few hours. Modern abdominal jsurgery proposes to cut the patient open and apply a ligature to the internal artery and remove the blood that has flowed into the stomach, and in nine out of ten cases, no matter how ugly tbe wound may have been, the patient will recover. The same method will save life in cases of an in testinal wound. The treatment must be rapid, as a matter of course. Yon remem ber the policeman who was shot by a negro in the parks. It is very likelv that this treatment would have saved his life. The man that Ed Coffee killed would not have died if he had been promptly opened and patched up.

K0T AT ALL SEKI0DS. Remits of a Saturday Nlaht Fight With t Fokernnd a Hniebet. John Kirkpatrick, a riveter, and Charles Staub, a bridge builder, recently employed at Johnstown, and who are next door neigh bors residing at Forty-fifth and one-half and Hatfield streets, had a difficulty on Satur day evening over the alleged attentions of the former to the latter's wife. Kirkpatrick attacked Staub with a poker, cutting him on the face, and the latter re taliated by inflicting a scalp wound on his assailant's head with a hatchet. Kirkpat rick walked to Dr. Sands' office on Forty third street and had his wound attended to, while Staub disappeared and had not re turned home up to 9 o'clock last night. Tnlnable Instruments Stolen. About 550 o'clock yesterday afternoon a sneak thief entered the residence of Dr. Wall, veterinary surgeon, who resider at 121 Bebecca street, Allegheny, and stole three cases of surgical instruments. Tha cases contained 150 different kinds of instru ments and are very valuable. The police of both cities were notified. JDS. HDRNE I CD.'B PENN AVENUE STORES. BUSIER AND BUSIER.
