" CHAPTEB IX,
The citixen opens the ball door, finds hit copy
of The Dispatch, and at once forgets all his
troubles. He has no time to read the paper
before breakfast, but hastily skims the head
lines, and ia at once convinced that it is one of
. the brightest and best newspapers in the world.
He notices that the cable has contributed the
best and brightest news of the Old World, that
all tbe events of Interest in our own country
are chronicled, and that the local news is up to
its usual high standard. With a fleeting glance
at the financial page, he hies himself to break
fast, CHAPTEB III.
After bath and breakfast the impatient citi
zen seeks a hammock or pulls the old rocker
Into a shady comer, and gives himself up to
solid comfort. He delves into the mysteries of
English and American politics, reads with
pleasure tbe romances of real life as recorded
by The Dispatch's correspondents in every
town and village of tbe country, and scans with
interest all tbe news about his neighbors.
Having been brought tbus easily and com
pletely in touch with the world and its doings,
he determines to enjoy a literary feast.
The"story by Jules Verne, "A Journey Off tbe
Track," catches our friend's eye, and ho at
once forgets himself in following the fortunes
of tbe little valise. He turns from article to
article, each time- finding fresh delight or in
formation. Not being a selfish man, he is con
stantly imparting something of interest to his
wife, and when the children become restless he
calls them to his side, and delights them by
reading aloud Ernest H. Heinrich's fairy story.
As the sun sinks in the west and the stars
are guttering and twinkling In the sky, our
good citizen feels stealing over him the romance
of his youth, and quotes from The Dispatch
in bis hand a little poem appropriate to tbe oc
casion, at which his wife smiles and blushes
with pleasure, at the same time saying, with
the inconsistency of woman: "John, you are
just as silly as ever."
Nlgbt casts her mantle over the earth and
the citizen retires, refreshed in body and mind,
and ready to take up tbe battle of lil e once

PITTSBURG, SATURDAY. JULY 20. 1889.
A QUICKLY EXPLODED EUM0K.
Chairman Abbott, of Carnegie, Phipps &
Co., in this morning's issue, emphatically
denies the rumor which obtained currency
on Thursday among iron and steel manu
facturers that the firm was cutting the price
on plates JG per ton. Chairman Abbott
further states that there has been no cnt at
all to the extent or in the sense implied;
that while quotations vary somewhat, now
as ordinarily, according to the grades and
magnitude of orders, it is absolutely false
that the tendency is downward; that on the
contrary, the firm is asking and getting bet
ter prices in the general run of its business,
and that the rnmor was entirely withont
The Dispatch is glad to be able to cor
rect the report, and it feels prepared to do
so strongly, because the positiveness of the
statements, on both sides, made to its re
porter, led to a thorough inquiry yesterday,
which failed to exhibit stronger evidence
than surmise on the part of some of Car
negie, Phipps & Co.'s competitors. The
representations of third parties seemed to
be taken for evidence in one quarter, while
in another a mere belief that "somebody
was catting" was taken as supporting the
allegation respecting Carnegie, Phipps &
Co. adopting that policy.
It is not surprising that the peculiar situ
ation of the great industries in which the
Carnegie establishments are interested make
their movements a subject of keen concern
to others in the trade as well as to labor cir-,
cles. Nor is it strange that extraordinary
rumors get afloat. Some of these, as in the
present instance, are annoying for tbe time.
But when they can be so promptly and sat
isfactorily contradicted as has been done in
this case by Chairman Abbott, they are bet
ter thns caught early and nipped in the bnd
than allowed to grow by the processes of im
agination into a positive sonrce of distrust
IS HE CAUGHT 1
The possibility that the degraded perpe
trator of the horrible Whitechapel murders
has been captured, will cause a feeling oi
relief in that poverty-stricken quarter which
will be shared to a certain extent by civili
zation. The donbt that exists whether the
person caught is the real murderer is, of
course, not easily solved. The man caught
may be a lunatic, with a delusion that
leads him to confess to the murders; or
he may be the dangerous kind of lunatic
that the real murderer undoubtedly is. It
is hard to imagine any sane person entering
upon the cunning and devilish career of un
exampled butchery that has been committed
by tbe Whitechapel fiend; and yet the
lunacy is of a character that, in the interest
of humanity, calls for the execution of the
murderer. In the absence of any more cer
tain evidence, tbe only test as to whether
the captive is the real batcher mast be
whether the butcheries cease '-with his capture.
AH IMPEOBABLE COBKEB.
There is ground for regarding the story
that the Sugar Trust has been storing im
mense quantities of refined sugar with a
view to cornering the market with a good
deal of suspicion. That there is a large ac
cumulation of sugar is quite possible. It is
hardly to be contended, either, that the
limits of tbe trust's rapacity have been
reached by the large profits which it has al
ready secured. But that it intends to
squeeze the market any more is unlikely,
simply because its ability to do so is more
limited than its desires.
The accumulation of refined sugar is an
evidence that, even with the restraints pat
upon production by the trust, it has largely
exceeded production. In other words, the
economic law that as the price advances
consumption decreases, is showing its
effect. To further raise the price would
only have the effect of farther decreasing
the demand. If the trust should make
another advance in prices it would only in
crease the burden of itasurplus stock and
deprive 'itself of the already excessive
profits which it makes on sales at present
prices. While greed frequently over
reaches itself, it is hardly possible that the
trust managers can fail to perceive that their
only way of getting rid of their surplus
stocks is to keep prices where they will
In a pnblic point of view the develop
ment of corner prices in sugar would not be
without its compensations. It would seal
the doomTjf the Sugar Trust by making the
removal of the duties on sugar a foregone
conclusion. The trust may be able to per
ceive this fact, and yet be ready to create
the impression that this is a good time tor
outsiders to load up with sugar.
THE NEW DIAMOND STBEET.
Notwithstanding the Mayor's veto, the
passage of the ordinance for the widening
of Diamond street was ratified at yesterday's
session of Common Council. This promises
another r handsome thoroughfare for the
central part of the city. The merits
of the question, pro and con, have been
folly discussed. There is nothincr to
add now, except that the abutting prop
erty owners wno petitioned lor the im
provement will be expected to make good
their promises and meet the damages. The
Board of Viewers is also committed to the
same view by its letter to Councils. If this
arrangement is carried out in good iaith the
acquisition of the widened thoroughfare
will be welcomed by everybody. There is
some talk of litigation, and suits may be
entered by parties in interest; but of the
power of Common Councils to order the
widening and of tbe viewers to assess on
the property immediately benefited no se
rious donbt is entertained.
ABE POLITICS IN HI
The statement which comes to light in
onr local columns to-day, that the ex
tradition of F lemon Is an outcome of an
old political dispute, and that the purpose
is to get him back to South Carolina, where
he will be condemned by the ready-made
justice afforded to the colored race in that
section, for the death of a white man who
attacked the colored people, adds a good
deal of romance to that case."" The assertion
is somewhat weakened by the fact that it
was not made in time to have its accuracy
tested by the witnesses from the South, and
more especially by the fact that the pris
oner has contended that he was not the man
Of course tbe pnblic will hope that the
prisoner will have a fair trial, no matter
which story is true. The movement to get
the administration to use its influence for
that end is therefore praiseworthy. But be
yond tbe exertion of such an influence it
should be perceived that tbeadministration
can do little. It has for some years been
plain enongh that the General Government
cannot undertake the supervision of justice
in the State Courts of the South any more
than it can in the North. The administra
tion has just as much actual power over the
trial of this case as it had over that of the
Maxwell-Preller case in St. Louis, or the
Yellow row murder in this city and that
is none at all.
If Flemon is unjustly condemned by the
South Carolina Courts it will be a disgrace
to South Carolina;'but South Carolina alone
must bear the disgrace "and responsibility.
Until then it may be no more than fair to
await thcevidence and tbe outcome of the
case before jumping to conclusions.
SPOILS AND HABH0NY.
The decision of the conference of the Na
tional Republican Committee, in favor of
the Mahone wing of the Virginia republi
cans need surprise no one. While the de
cision was not, perhaps, a foregone conclu
sion, the fact that Mahone has since 1880
managed to keep himself near the machine
workers in the Republican organization,
rendered a decision in his favor quite likely,
even if his opponents had possessed a larger
preponderance of respectability than they
But what may be taken as a foregone con
clusion is that no decision rendered in this
manner will restore strength and harmony
to the Republican organization in Virginia.
The theory of building political organizations
from the top down does not work any better
than it wonld in tbe case of material
structures. The party decided against will
be more disaffected than ever. Unless the
basis for a united party can be fmnished by
harmonizing the people, the National Com
mittee might as well have saved its efforts
so far as strengthening the party is con
cerned. But the decision will probably open the
spoils grab-bag to the Mahone faction; and
in the first year of an administration that is
regarded as more important than laying the
foundations of real political strength.
HAYTTS BTBUGGLE ENDING.
The intelligence from Hayti promises the
speedy termination of the struggle there by
the capture of Port-au-Prince and the com
plete triumph of Hippolyte's party. The
proverbial unreliability which attaches to
all Haytian intelligence, by the way in
which it is colored Or manufactured out
right in the interest of one party or
the other, is all that throws any doubt on
the statement that Eippolyte is besieging
Legitime ia his own capital, with every
prospect of success.
The United States will -be justified in re
joicing at this end of the bloody struggle.
While fears are expressed for the safety of
American residents at the Haytian capital,
the naval forces there are on the alert for
their protection. Hippolyte's disposition
to respect American rights more carefully
than Legitime'! party has done, will also
add to" the salety of American residents. If
the Haytian straggle should be ended by
his triumph, the United States need not re
gret it. (The whole bloody civil war should
also cure this country of any desire to, ex-"
tend its possessions to the West Indies and
to Include among its ciUse&s people who
have shown such an utier lack of the qual
ities of self-government.
An analysis of the vinegar of commerce,
made under the authority of the State Board
of Health in Indiana, proves tha? seven
eighths of the vinegar which was submitted
to analysis was a decoction of rain water
and sulphnrio acid. The vinegar manufac
turers seem to be forming the character
of their staple upon tbe model of one of
John J. Ingalls' political ideas.
A veby decided and pertinent attack is
made upon the Salt Trust by onr esteemed
coteaiporary, the Philadelphia Record,
which points out that the purposes of the
trust are to extort atrocious pricei from
consumers, and to float a large amount of
watered certificates upon confiding investors.
But while the Record makes a comparison
of th'.s combination with the Sugar Trust, it
somehow omits to state the fact that, as the
Sugar Trust is under the management of
leading Democrats of New York, the Salt
Trust will inaugurate its career under the
Presidency of the last Democratio candidate
for Governor ia Michigan.
It is stated by the Boston Herald that
"Chairman Quay turns up in Washington
quite frequently." As onr cotemporary en
tirely omits to state what Senator Quay
turns up, it may be pertinent to remark that
he not infrequently turns up a jack, and con
sequently scores a point for himself.
A quotation is going the rounds of the
Prohibition press fiom our esteemed local
cotemporary, the Christian Advocate, which
asserts that "thirty years ago a proposition
to abolish slavery wonld have been defeated
in Pennsylvania by a majority of 300,000."
The esteemed Christian Advocate should
study local history a little. If it had done
so it might have saved itself this attack
upon its own State by the knowledge of the
fact that Pennsylvania abolished slavery
not thirty, but one hundred years ago.
The destructions by fires during the
month of Juncin this country amounted to
57,765,000. If this country has no better
use for that amonnt of property than to
burn it up, it might have used it more wisely
to burn it up daring cold weather, when
fuel Is needed. j
That reported Brickyard Trust will be
principally expensive to the people who
buy the trust certificates, under the im
pression that monopoly profits can be made
out of a business in which any man can
start who has a couple of acres of ground
and a few thousand dollars to buy ma
chinery. If this trust is ever started its
purpose will be not tbe manufacture of
brick, but the fleecing of the Iambs.
It begins to appear necessary to make
the suggestion that tbe officers of the State
Belief Commission will institute a marked
reform, by ceasing to offer explanations of
the kind that do not explain.
Is it not a little singular, in view of the
statement with regard to the vast amount of
English money that is seeking investments
in American enterprises, that the balance
of trade still calls for large shipments of
gold from this country to England? It is
more possible that tbe talk about British
gold coming to this country has been exag
gerated than that the statistics of American
gold going abroad have been.
That airship which was expected to
make a success in aerial navigation, has met
with fatal disaster by reason of its inability
to navigate in either air or water.
"Who shall hold the place of Chief Di
rector of the International Exposition of

It is carious how prosperity affects some peo
ple. There's a man in business in Pittsburg
with whom I became acquainted in 1885. He
was then employed In a fairly lucrative posi
tion. Thouch a. reserved, taciturn man, be
served me in several ways, and we became
rather intimate. About a year after I became
acquainted with him, I heard that he had lost
his position. Then I met him on the street,
but only for a msment, and in that he told me
that he had given up his profession to go into
After that Itsaw him once In 1187 and again
in the fall of last year. He seemed to avoid
me, and as I had no real claim upon his friend
ship, I did not pursue him. Besides, I noticed
that he had become very shabby injiis dress,
and looked miserable it occurred to me that
he was not anxious to tell me of the bad luck
he seemed to behaving. At first he had been
notable rather for his neat habits of dress, but
the last time I saw him his clothes were pain
fully shabby particularly a long coat of black
tbat had. turned almost green through ace.
Though Iihad no right to do so, I concluded
that life had' gone very hardly with my whilom
Yesterdayl meta man who knows better than
I the individual of whom I've been talking. I
asked him what had happened to our mutual
acquaintance; was be In very hard lines? My
friend replied, with a laugh: "Not exactly.
He's spending a long vacation just now, and
there is no reason why he shouldn't continue it
till be dies. He has, by lncky strokes in trade
and by the acquirement of a patent, made
money very fast. What he has now is enough
to keep him in first-rate st)le all his days."
J 'Then why does he wear clothes that are ripe
for the ragman?"
"A whim of a wealthy man, that's all."
Necessarily the identity of my subject is
thoroughly concealed, but tbe operation of
prosperity upon a certain individual is truth
fully exhibited In the above sketch.
Even in these days of sumptuous trade
journals. The Maberdathc, a New York pub
lication in tbe interest of what is known as the
gents' furnishing trade awfully named Is a
wonder. But it is not the fine paper, the en
gravings, ner the portraits of three tremen
dously omate gentlemen who are, so the legend
tells us, the journalists of the furnishing Roods
trade, to which I wish to call attention. -It is a
far more important matter.
The fashion for the coming season in full
dress shirts, collars and cuffs!
The Habrrdashcr says: "Collars have occa
sionally, hitherto, been brought out with em
broidered points, but we believe this Is the

embroidery has "been carried entirely around
the edge of both collars and cuffs."
This embroidery is to be the fashion. It

Novel Scheme for Sprinkling- tha Streets of
Asbury PABKi July 19. A big brass band
marched through the principal streets of Ocean

a lever vhloh' allowed the water to run down
and sprinkle tbe ground. The cart was Oiled
with salt water; which was pumped from the
ocean by wave power. The machine which does
the pnmplng has been erected on a pier built
out over the ocean nntlet of Wesley Lake.

LITTLE WHITE PEACE MAKER.
It was only a simple flower.
But it touched me quick to the heart;
J, In anger, and for a trifle.
Had determined that we must part.
He plead not in Justification.
He uttered no slgb, not a moan,
Ko word Of regret, no vexation.
But rising, he left me alone.
As I sat there, silent, unheeding,
Mjreves turned coldly away;
Approaching unseen, the white flower
On my folded hands, he lay.
He knew thit I loved It the dearest.
Of all the fair garden's rich yield;
And quickly It filled lta commission;
Most eloquently it appealed.
It was only a simple flower.
But Its sweetness entered my heart;
With penitence deep and contrition,
I recalled him, ne'er to depart.
