ALL ARE SATISFIED.
The Homestead Men Pleased! the Firm
Ditto, nnd So Are All.
There is every Indication that the settlement
of the Homestead strike Is satisfactory to all
concerned, and for the next three years the
Homestead mills will undoubtedly run along
as well as can bo expected. Mr. W. L. Abbott,
Chairman of Carnegie, Phipps fc Co., yesterday
afternoon said :
"We are perfectly satisfied with the result of
the conference. We made some concessions,
of course: we expected to. But we had our
sliding scale accepted, and, though not in its
entirety, still we gained a few points. If the
workmen are pleased and they enjoy themselves
in consequence, 1 am very glad to bear it, be
cause it is an evidence tbat they will go to
work in a spirit of satisfaction.
"Regarding the men we have hired from
Dorner and Geisler, I must say that everybody
who his any claim on us will get paid for the
time we hired them, and at the terms agreed
upon. The conditions under which we hired
them last week were unusual, and of course it
is only fair tbat we should pay them. They
will cet their SI a day, as agreed upon."
THE GLASS CONVENTION.
The Apprenticeship System Una Not Been
Discussed Yesterday' Session Only of
President Campbell called the delegates to
the Window Glass Workers' Convention to
order at 8 o'clock yesterday morning, and the
Finance Committee at once made their report
on the financial system in use by the associa

examination of the office books and the com

existing system. A number of complimentary
remarks were made about Mr. Cake's work,
and a vote was passed to have the same system
The Committee on Laws recommended some
minor changes in the law governing pi eceptors.
Then the committee on rules for working
recommended a few changes, which were also
The apprentice system was expected to be
discussed; bnt the committee was not ready to
report yet. One of the members of the com
mittee said last night that they were getting
up an entirely new system and its disenssiou
would probably last a whole session. These
changes ill be very interesting because the
faults and shortcomings of the old apprentice

foreign window glass men to Jeannette.
It is expected that the convention wiU ad

THE iETXA SUSPENDS,
But Secretary Dillon Claims Tbat the Glass
Trade Is Not Doll.
This telegram was received from Bellaire
The announcement of the .Etna Glass and
Manufacturing Company that it will suspend
the manufacture of glassware indefinitely be
cause tbat branch of business is so flat and
unsatisfactory that it yields no returns for the
capital employed and the work and annoyance
entailed in its conduct, and notifying its em
ployes that tbey are at liberty to engage else

the glass workers, whose National Convention
is !n session in this city.
Secretar Wm. J. Dillon, of the National Glass
Workers' Association, said to-day
"It Is not right that tbe statement of the -Etna

IT COSTS TOO MUCH.
Ernstn WImnn' Fuel Saver Prove to bo
a Failure It Will Do Where Tbero t
No Ga and Coal U High.
Natural gas won't be knocked out as a local
fuel for manufacturers, just yet for a while. A
person who has interested himself in tbe inven
tion of Mr. Erastns Wiman, which has been
announced as a saving on natural gas as fuel,
reports tbat a test of nearly two months, at
tbe Vesuvius Iron Works, of Moorbead Bros.
&. Co., at Sbarpsburg, proves it to be a failure.
He says a beating furnace was remodeled for
the trial and when all was ready for work It
was discovered tbat the idea was only a slight
deviation from a previous expedient to bum in
ferior coal or slack. At tbe rear of tbe top of
tbe furnace was an Iron chest filled with pul
verized slack, which was forced into tbe fur
nace by means of a current otold air through
a small pipe Each made the required heat for
a distance a little more than halt way from the
end where it entered.but was almost entirely lost
before the other end was reached, and the re
sult was that while the iron was properly heat
ed for rolling at one end of the furnace, that at
tbe other end was not heated more than 23 per
cent of what was required. He says tbat every
possible effort was made to overcome tbe diffi
culty, but to nopurpose, the furnace being torn
down and rebuilt five times without effecting
The invention was then tried in the puddling
department, where, so far as making a uniform
heat was concerned, the result was much more
satisfactory; but the loss in effectiveness of
fuel was greater than in either coal or gas In
the accomplishment of the same result Two
puddling furnaces were each supplied with 2,
00 pounds of metal for five heats. The fur
nace supplied with tbe Wiman appliance was
in charge of George House and the one
using gas was worked by George Zimmerman.
When the .t day's work or me beau was
finished tb; was a difference of 63 pounds in
favor of thi urnace using gas.
The obje ons alleged were several. In tbe
first place le artificial bottom necessary in
any pnddliiig furnace must be renewed after
every day' work with not less than 40 pounds
of scrap iron, tbe cost of which may be put at
50 cents, whereas In furnaces using coal or gas
a bottom sometimes lasts two weeks and even
longer. Then tbe fix or 600 pounds for five
beats, estimated cost 1 0, would require at
least 100 pounds more, besides the loss of iron
in the puddling process.
The experiment at the puddling furnace did
not last more than two weeks last month (or to
the end of the scale year), when it was aban
doned and gas connection resumed.
During tbe entire time the process was wit
nessed by at least ono-balf of tbe iron manu
facturers of tbe city, and on tbe last trial the
manager of the puddling department of the
Warren, O., mill, where it is used in the pud
dling department watched it closely.
Tbe heat from the Wiman patent process can
be properly supplied to a puddling furnace a
little more than four feet square, but in tbe
modern beating furnaces, which aro nearly all
moro than 14 feet in length, interior measure
ment the invention "is nowhere."
The experiment at the Vesuvius works is
said to have cost over S6,000.
A Dispatch reporter called at the Alle
gheny office of Moorbead Bros. A Co.yester
day. The Superintendent there confirmed the
report that the process had been abandoned.
But be said tbat it was not on account of tbe
renewing of the furnace bottoms, but for tbe
reason tbat tbey have found it to be more ex
pensive than either coal or gas. He thought
it could be used successfully in mills where
there is no natural gas and coal is dear.

PITTSBLTRG- DISPATCH, '
THE KAGEJUSES UP.
Pittsburs's Colored Folk Protest
Against Southern Baste,
DEMANDING JUSTICE FOR FLEMON.
A Mass Meeting on tbe Hill Not Easily to
WAS THE JAIL RECOGNITION PERFECT?
Rev. E. JTlemon was seemingly recog
nized yesterday as John Yeldell, wanted
for murder in South Carolina, by United
States Marshal Strom and Deputy Shenfl
Thomas J. Lyon. About 2 o'clock in the
afternoon the officers, accompanied by Sol
Coulson, Attorney C. F. McKenna for the
prisoner, and Mr. Eccles ior the Common
wealth of South Carolina, went to the jail
to have a look at the preacher.
A crowd of colored sympathizers gathered
outside the jail and denounced the Southern
Marshal. They spoke of him derisively as
a "jayhawk," and said if Flemon was taken
South he would be lynched without a trial.
Broadax Smith headed the delegation, and
when it was known that Flemon had been
identified, Broadax said tbat didn't mean any
thing at all. He claimed that Sol Coulson had
posted the Marshal, and anybodyAvith the same
instructions could have picked out the pris
oner. Warden Berlin was careful that Detective
Coulson could not see the prisoner, and the
Southern officers were taken into the prison
corridor alone. The colored jail birds were
marched before the Marshal, and be at once,
as soon as he saw Flemon, stepped up to him
ana said, "How are you, John?" holding out
TLEMON NEVEB QUAILED,
and at first refused to shake, but finally both
men clasped hands. Flemon wore a short
light coat and heavy black slouch hat He
didn't look like a minister, and when there
porters and detectives were admitted Detect
ive Coulson did not recognize the preacher. He
selected another colored gentleman wbo wore
a plug hat and resembled a clergyman in ap
pearance for Flemon. .
"John is a heap smarter," remarked the
United States Marshal, in the peculiar South
ern vernacular, "than when he used to be in
South Carolina. I knew him as soon as I saw
Attorney McKenna was satisfied that the
identification was straight and bo supposed tbe
requisition papers were all right, but he wanted
the officers to show that Flemon was in South
Carolina when tbe murder was committed. Ibe
latter has given Mr. McKenna a full account of
himself at the time of the murder, and he
claims be was not there. Flemon will be taken
into court Wednesday morning.
The colored people wergreatly excited, and
one of them declared he would spend all he bad
to defend the minister. "If he is taken South,"
he yelled at tbe top of his voice, "they will kill
him," at the same time putting his bands
around bis neck in imitation of an execution by
banging, to show how it would be done.
It i claimed by some of tbe police officials
that Flemon was allowed to disguise himself in
the suit of a fellow prisoner, but it was said in
his behalf last night tbat it was a difficult mat
ter to keep a man well dressed in jail.
HIS ENTHUSIASTIC BACKERS.
The demonstration last night in the Franklin
street schoolbouse In behalf of Flemon was en
thusiastic to the degree tbat bursts hoops,
though the pressure was greatly restrained by
three preachers wbo Insisted on performing the
function of governing valves. Rev. George W.
Clinton, pastor of the John Wesley Church,
Arthnr street, opened the ball in a rousing
speech, which terminated in a motion to call
Mr. R. W. Jenkins to tbe chair, which call was
appropriately made and J. C. Delpby made
Secretary. Mr. B. F. Stewart was then elected
reporter. It was explained tbat no slight was
intended to tbe reporters present but it was
deemed appropropriate tbat the recognized or
gans of the colored people conducted by col
ored people shonld be appropriately recognized.
Mr. Clinton said be intended to correct a mis
statement It had been reported tbat Mr.
Flemon was pastor of tbe church of
which Mr. Clinton himself was pastor.
Mr- Clinton counseled moderation and degeed
tbe meeting not to overdo the matter: that all
desired was tbat Flemon should get a fair
bearing, and, if guilty, get his deserts. No two
men could come to Pitt'burg and take a black
man to a State like South Carolina until be
was proven guilty, when they boasted that tbey
had lynched but six Legroes since emancipa
tion. Mr. Clinton was from the Palmetto
State, and lovrd it, but negroes got no sbow
thee. After recounting a number of outrages
on colored people in South Carolina, Mr. Clin
ton submitted the following:
Wiikreas, Mr. E. F. Flemon, who has been a
res'dent or this city and State for the past three
years, was arrested on last Monday evening, on a
charge sent from bouth Carolina implicating him
in a murder said to have been committed In the
county or Edgefield, bouth Carolina, in the year
M bereas. Officers from tbe State of Sooth Caro
lina bave come to take him to said State for trial;
Whereas, ite. Flemon now protests his inno
cence in the strongest terms and claims to be able
to prove that be now bears the name which be bas
always borne, and that he is not the John Yeldell
who committed the crime above named: and
Whereas, He bas borne a commendable char
acter since In our midst and came here with
papers showing that be has been a preacher before
coming here: and
Whereas, We are satisfied from the partial man
ner in which the laws of South Carolina are ad
ministered that he will not receive Justice; there
fore, be It
Kesolved, That we do hereby pledge ourselves
to raise means to sustain C F. McKenna, Esq., In
sifting this case to the furthest extent that Mr.
Flemon may have a chance to establish bis Inno
cence or be retained here till conclusive proof of
bis guilt be established bv bis pursners.
becond That wc hereby express our gratitude
to the Judges, who have charge of tbe hab-as
corpus case, for tbe fair and impartial manner in
which tbey hare managed the case thus far, and
that we have the utmost confidence in them and
feel assured tbat Mr. Flemon will get a fair and
Impartial hearing at their bands
Third We do earnestly appeal to the Presiding
Judxes to demand the strictest Investigation and
require tbe most conclusive proof ot bis guilt be
fore delivering him over to tbe charge of the
officers who have come for Blm.
Fourth While we do not wish to uphold law
lessness, crime, orfelonvofany kind, we appeal
to all cone rned that thcvleave no stone unturned
to secure to the accused a fair and impartial trill.
Fifth We appeal to every colored citizen, and
to the generous citizens In general of Pittsburg,
to aid us in this struggle for right, law and Jus
tice, and ask that contributions be made to see
tbat tbe accused receives a fair and impartial
hearing bv brlnclng witnesses who may tcstlfv in
his behalf so that tbe court may have no lack of
evidence in this case.
Mr. Clinton stated that C.F. McKenna, Esq ,
had told him tbat Flemon bad given him a his
tory of his whole -career, showing him not to
have been in South Carolina when the crime
KICKING AVAILED NOTHING.
It was decided to discuss tbe paper fully
before action was taken on it and- Richard
Keys began the talk. He Kicked on the
five-minute rule of the Chairman, but
found be was kicking against tbo pricks.
Mr. Keys then launched some Invectives
acalnst a report in a paper and was called
down by Rev. Clinton, and being switched off
explained how things ought to be conducted
under a habeas corpus. Mr. Keys said no
black man ever got a fair trial In a Sonthern
Bute, and stated bis conviction that the move
ment to get Flemon was political. In tbe
midst of his explanation Mr. Keys' head was
taken off by the Chairman.
J. H. Chilton announced his intention to de
fend Flemon, if it cost blm (Chilton) his lire
and position, and any colored man mat! who
wouldn't do so was a coward. Cheers. In
conclusion, Chilton asked the meeting to in
dorse a letter to Cbief J. O. Brown, complain
ing of the conduct of Detective Sol Coulson.
He states that Coulson, while at the jail yester
day when Flemon was being Identified, called
Chilton harsh names, and told him be was tak
ing too much lntere t In the case, and that be
would get even with him. Tbe letter was laid
over for awhile and afterward Indorsed.
Mr. Chilton said a culored man said Chief
Brown and the Department of Public Safety
wonld Interfere and prevent tbeir action.
Cries Name him. name himl
Chilton His name Is Ajax Jones. Sensa
tion, Mr. Dell Watson was fierce. His heart and
soul was In this case. He couldn't work for
thinking of it He objected to tbemgiving tbe
enemy points by discussing tbe habeas corpus
act Tbey were there to act and they should
do so by putting tbeir bands into their pockets
and eettingout tbeir moneyand making a legal
fight to keep Flemon in Pittsburg. "Why,"
said Mr. Watson, "them people will do any
thing there in South Carolina. If the Alle
gheny County Court lets him go they will hunt
him like the patridge on the mountain, drag
blm back like a dog and kill him like a sheep.

EOUO'H ON THE GOVEBNOB.
Mr. Wilson said It didn't make any difference
wbat the black vote in the South might be; it
would be represented oy a Democrat "What
Is a requisition? It is an Indictment That's
tbe law, and I defy any lawyer in tbe United
States to dispute it Tbe law is under my hat
Applause. Beaver don't know any law."
Rev. Clinton rose to a point of order that tbe
objects of the meeting were a declaration Of
principles and tbe raising of cash to seenre
Flemon a fair trial. Mr. Clinton's point was
declared well taken, but amid much dissent
by a good many men wbo objected to being put
under an extinguisher. It so worked on Mr.
Chilton that he-offered to be one of a party to
prevent the taking of Flemon back, but Mr.
Chilton was not supported, though a strag
gling "Amen" seemed to give some
encouragement Mr. Holland also made
a fiery speech, and Vild bow one of
the South Carolina officers talked and how ill
bred he was. Mr. Holland said the officer was
so illiterate that he had to spell out every third
word In a Newspaper, and constantly pro
nounced negro "nigger." Said the speaker: "I
believe the man was talking up to the height
of his intelligence." '
MANY POINTS OF OEDEB.
Rev. Mr. Clinton again attempted to get tbe
meeting down to business, but some of the
crowd were getting restive and came the point-of-order
racket on him- Finally there was a
suspension of oratory long enough to take up a
collection, which realized 23 23. One man
suggested that Colonel R. G. Ingersoll be
hired to assist Mr. McKenna, and to follow tbe
case to South Carolina, if necessary; but he
was overruled, it being decided that Mr. Mc
Kenna should choose bis own assistant The
fund collected was turned over to Messrs. D.
M. Washington, J. H. Chilton and C. H. Pal
mer. Speeches were also made by Robert Ray, the
Rev. J. H. McMullen, Rev. D. S. Bentiey and
Scott Taper. Tbo latter insisted on tbe ad
visability of getting money, and said it could
be used to bury Flemon in case be was mur
dered in South Carolina.
Mr. Clinton's resolutions were adopted. A
committee was appointed to consult with Mr.
McKenna in regard to securing additional
counsel if necessary. Tbe committee consisted
of Revs. D. S. Bentiey. J. H. McMullen, Mr.
Arch Ball and Dr. Goldman.
THE MINERS MEET.
They Endeavor to Keep the Regular Price
of 3 Cents n Bushel.
The miners of the three lower pools assem
bled yesterday afternoon at Dagg's Ferry to
establish uniform wages. The price adopted
and agreed to by tbe operators at the Miners'
Convention last February is 3 cents per bushel,
and this is tbe price to which the miners want
to stick. But daring tbe summer, when work
in mines is generally scarce, operators often In
duce men to work for less money, on the plea
that a small price is better than no work at all.
Tbe miners do not think this fair, as it would
tend to bring wages down. To settle that point
the meeting was called, and a unanimous vote
in favor of maintaining the 3 cent price was
Mr. John Flannery, talking on tbe subject
yesterday afternoon, said be felt sure the
miners would gain their point "I have just
obtained a report from Jellico and Kewcomb,
Tenn.," said Mr. Flannery. "which states that
tbe miners In tbat region have won a similar
fight, tb e operators signing an agreement to
piytfie men the 3 cents all the year round.
Now this will have great weight dn the loner

The License Court and Judge White
in the Fullest Accord.
A WEIGHTY PETITION PRESENTED.
Judge White's Letter Highly Praised hy
IT NOW BESTS "WITH OTflEE JUDGES
An important stage has been reached in
the proceedings before License Court, yes
terday bringing to light the details of the
movement by which it is hoped to secure
some 250 additional retail licenses in the
two cities ot Pittsburg and Allegheny. The
petition to the Court, given in full below,
emanates from 104 of the cream of the
licensees of last year who were turned down
by Judge White, and the letter of the lat
ter to Judges Ewing and Magee also pub
lished in full is believed to predicate the
virtual redistriction of the retail liquor
trade in the two cities.
Mr. Josiah Cohen had the following to
say last night when asked to indicate the
possibilities of a reopening of the cases of a
portion of those who were refused in May
last: "The matter is now in the hands of
Judges Ewing and Magee, and their well
known prudence and integrity is a sufficient
guarantee that while the claims of the ap
plicants will receive due legal consideration,
the rights of the public will be equally wgil
guarded. Tbe interests ot tbe community, are
safe in tbeir hands,and I believe that tbe golden
medium will obtain and a reasonable
number of additional licenses will be, given,
which would be consistent with thfeeling
prevailing among tbe unbiased thinkers of our
JTJDQE -WHITE'S MANLY STAND.
"I cannot but think that Judge "White's let
ter Is a clear, explicit and manly document. It
is a wise man who is able to gracefully recog
nize that be may have been mistaken in tbe
construction of tbe law. I believe that if Judge
White had been cognizant pi the opinion held
by the Supreme Court bis mction would have
been materially different In"the matter of re
tail licenses. He shows tfiat most admirable
quality in a Judge, willingness to conform to
tbe action of his superiors, by the effort be is
making to repair whatmigbt hare been jndged
an erroneous interpretation of the law.
Jndge White construed the wholesale
and retail cases npin tbe same basis, a very
natural mistake when tbe caption of the Brooks
law is an act to regulate and restrain.' As in
dicated In Judge XV bite's letter to his judicial
associates, the evls of intemperance intended
to be avoided by the Brooks law have been
largely nullifies by the construction placed
upon tbe wholesale act Judce White rizhtly
thinks that of the two evils comprehended the
sale of llquorsln small quantities can best be
accomplisbedrtbrongh tbe medium of the retail
act This wfll, I think, be generally considered
as a sounqview. Pittsburg bas an immense
and growiirg amount ot transient trade, and no
obstacle Should be imposed in tbe matter of
proper and adequate accommodation for all
classes oi travelers."
SINGLING OUT LICENSEES.
Considering the fact tbat nearly 600 appli
cants were refused license, what method will
bepursued in order to equitably distribute 250
licenses if the Court sees fit to grant such a
ireentage of applications T" queried the re
"So far as 1 know, no 'method' will be
adopted," said Mr. Cohen. "I presume that in
accordance with Judge Faxson's implied ad
vice in bis opinion, those applicants wbo meet
with all the requirements of tbe law and who
operate hotels or restaurants will be given a
'Will anyone wbo was not an applicant at
tbe May License Court term stand a show of
securing a license T" was asked.
"Certainly not," said Mr. Cohen. "Bona fide
applicants, and none others, will be considered.
All tbe necessary or expedient legal steps bave
now been taken and the results of tbe whole
movement will be seen so soon as tbe Court
considers tbe matter deliberately.
NOT A LATVYEBS' JOB.
One of the most prominent attorneys of the
Pittsburg bar disclaims in strong terms the im
putation tbat the license rehearing agitation
was inspired by attorneys. Tbe association of
refused applicants started tbe whole move
ment No single attorney was paid a fee as an
individual by an Individual, and tbe men whose
names are attached to tbe petition are taking
all tbe chances of being "left" on the rehear
ing of their cases.
Another point is tbatthe saloon keepers who
now have license,are without a single excep
tion In favor of tbe increase in number of
licenses. All agree tbat there is far too much
business to be properly handled and the new
places, if any are licensed, are heartily welcome
to a share in the business now too great to be
properly attended to.
The same authority states tbat be is reliably
informed tbat Cbief J. O. Brown, of tbe De
partment of Public Safety, is heartily in favor
of and coincides in every particular with the
revised views of Judge White, as expressed in
his letter to Judges Ewing and Magee. The
reasons said t" be advanced by Chief Brown
are the dangerous growth of speak-easies and
the pernicious effect of small jug shops upon
the public both of which evils will assuredly
be minimized by th6 more equal and general
distribution of the regularly licensed retail
V THE MOOTED PETITION IN FULL.
The following is an exact copy of tbe formal
petition presented to court yesterday and
signed by 101 of the best retail liquor dealers
wbo were refused license by Judge White:
To the Honorable Judges of tbe License Court of
Allegheny County. Pennsylvania:
Tbe petition or tbe undersigned respectfully
represents: That they were applicants for retail
liquor license at March sessions, 1889, or said
court and their said applications were refused.
That the houses respectively for which your peti
tioners applied for license are not located in the
immediate vicinity of any licensed bouses, and
tbat in said several localities there have not been
licensed by your Honorable Court a sufficient
number or houses to meet the necessities of tbe
That with very few exceptions your petitioners
were granted licenses at March sessions. Mm, by
your Honorable Court after a thorough Investiga
tion of tbe character, accommodations and neces
sity as required under the ait of May 13, 1887: and
that at tbe last session ol tbe said court, said con
ditions remained unchanged, excepting that of
necessity, wblcb, if anything, was Increased.
That those of your petitlouers wbo were granted
license at said sessions, 1SSS, have since in all re
spects complied with the requirements of the law.
Tbatthe result of tbe decisions of your Honor
able Court at said March sessions. ISM. was such
that at no time in tbe history of tbe retail liquor
traffic in this county bas said business been con
ducted in a manner more satisfactory to the pub
lic and more conducive to the peace and irood
order of the commnnlty.and thmtln notmore than
three Instances did your Honorable Court find it
necessary to revoke any license then granted.
And rnrther, Tbat the former prevalent offense
of selling liquor on banday by licensed dealers
had entirely ceased. In support of which allega
tion it will appear upon Inspection of the records
of tbe court thainotaslHKle complaint or con
viction was made or had on said charge against
any retail dealer licensed by yonr Honorable
HOW THEY WODLD SUFFER.
That most of your petitioners have been engaged
In said business for many years, and bave Invested
their savings and their earnings In the real estate
wherein they have carried on said business; and
have made valuable Improvements thereon,
especially adapted to the business by
them conducted, and none other. And many
of your petitioners. In view of their having
received license for many years, and having tne
same continued by your Honorable Court as afore
said, and, being eneourjsced to believe tbat said
licenses would be contflrued upon their compli
ance with the law, hate made still more valuable
Improvement upon said real estate, and have
laid In large stocks of liquors, upon all of which
Immense loss has been sustained, and by reason
of their lone-continued and exclusive engage
ment In said ouslmss, and their consequent unra
mtllarlty with otber lines or business, the accu
mulations and earnings of a lifetime will be swept
away unless the relief herein prayed for is af
forded. That in at least 14 large and populous wards of
the city or I'ittsburg and four wards in the city or
Allegheny equally as larse and populous, and la
many otber thickly settled districts In the county,
containing almost luttlXU inhabitants, and em
bracing Important and largely traveled thorough
fares, all accommodations to strangers, travelers
and tbe general public bss been denied, and tbat
In many other populous districts In tbe county the
number of licenses granted is wholly lnsudcient
to meet the demands of the dtlsens tbereor, and
that in this connection yonr petitioners aver tbat
they applied for license In said districts and had
the nesessary accommodations for the public as
well as tbe required qualifications as 1 evidenced
by the petitions herewith appended largely signed
by the citizens of tbe respective districts.
ONE IMMEDIATE BESULT.
And your petitioners most respectfully submit
tbat the experience of the eflecU of the recent
great reduction of licenses In this county to so
small a number- shoVs that In many cases tbe
houses licensed in consequence of their inability
to meet tbe public demand bave become mere
drinking places, affording little accommodation
to tbe public other than at the bar.
And further, YourHonor's attention la respect
fully called to the fact that owing to tbe insuffi
ciency ofllcensed houses, there has arisen a large
number of places where liquor Is sold without
licenses, in violation of all law and without any
restrictions whatever, as to days, times, pe-sons.
or places, and perhaps never In the history of this
county bas there existed so large a number of
such places as bave sprung up within tbe last two
That the effect of the recent decision of tbe Su
preme Court construing tbe act of May JH, I8S7, is
sucb that taken together wltb the limited number
or licensed bouses now In Alleabeny county, a
large trade wilt be established of furnishing
liquor by the quart and larger quantities and the
drluklng or tbe sae in the family, at clubs, upon
the roads and in tiio fields and groves, wblcb will
have a much more pernicious effect upon society
and tend far more to Intemperance than would
the establishment ot a sufficient number of
licensed retail bouses under the wholesome re
strictions nnder tne act of May 13, 1837.
Your petitioners, further showing the great loss
or revenue sustained by tbe cities, county and
State by the decrease or licenses aforesaid, in
addition to the averments hereinbefore named,
would respectfullyprav for a revision or the list
of applications for retail license, with the end in
view that at least 2S0 more licenses be granted In
this eounty to meet tne actual necessities of tbe
public And tbey will ever pray, etc
CONSIDEBING IT STILL.
Judges Ewing and Magee held a consultation
yesterday in their chamber at the Court House
on tbe above application for a revision of tbe
retail license list They concluded it at 1
o'clock, but would not state what tbey had
done. They said they would not announce
anything except in open court which is held
on Wednesdays and Saturdays of each week..
The most of their time, however. It was
stated, was spent in consideration of a letter
received from Judge White. The letter re
ferred to a visit made His Honor by several
attorneys, who asked him to put bis views on
the license question in writing. He referred
to the retail and wholesale acts of 18bT. and
said be thought they should be construed to
gether. For that reason, he refused applica
tions for wholesale and bottlers' licenses when
tbe evidence satisfied Lim that the business
bad. been, or would be, conducted in an im
proper manner or when they were unneces
sary. He regarded wholesale and bottling
houses, which sell by the quart, jug and
bucket to the neighborhood, as causing more
intemperance and being greater evils than
regular retail houses. Eefemng to the mate
rial changes made by the Supreme Court's
opinion, Jndge White said:
While I do not feel I made anv serious mistake,
yet bad I supposed tbat all of those would have
secured license, I should certaln'y have granted
more retail licenses. Ureitly limiting the num
ber of retailers and granting license to all whole
salers a,nd bottlers Is manifestly unjust to many
retail applicants. It Is applying one rule to re
tailers and another to wholesales, without so far
as I can see, anygood reason for thd difference.
His Honor said he made these remarks In
view of the applications next year. It was bet
ter, he said, to have a thousand retail bouses
than a thousand quart and jug establishments.
He would be satisfied with whatever Judges
Ewtng and Magee might do, and only offered
two suggestions if tbey concluded to grant
more licenses. First Do not limit considera
tion to the petitioners in this application.
Second Give preference to those who have
hotels or restaurants.
