Blooinfield May lie Traversed by a
Bis Electric Feeder to the
CITIZENS' TRACTION COMPANY.
One of the Longest Lines ETer Surveyed in
the Two Cities
TO COME FK01I THE CLIFF SECTION
A rumor has gained circulation lately
that the Citizens Traction Company pro
posed building an electric road from their
tracks at Pearl street, near the Penn avenue
entrance to the Allegheny Cemetery.throuch
Itloomfield and even over to the line of the
Fifth avenue company at Shadyside. Mr.
Holmes, President of the Citizens' Traction
Company was seen yesterday by a Dis
r.vTCH reporter. He said that the Board
of Directors had not taken any final action
in regard to the projected extension.
However, it is the policy of the company
to branch out and cover all the territory ad
jacent to their lines. Mr. Holmes said that
when they did anything in the way of
building they proposed to go quietly abont
it and not advertise the fact It is alto
gether probable that the company, like so
many others in the city, is holding back in
its constrnction of the road until the suc
cess or failure of the new electric storage
system, now being experimented with by
Kew York parties, it known.
A GROWING SECTION.
The old tracks of the street car line down
Pearl street to Bloomfield, operated some
five or six years ago by the Citizens' Pas
senger Company, are still intact. The line
was given up at the time because it did not
pay. Blooinfield was not theu built up as it
jj now and was considered a little hamlet
offby itself. Since that time Bloomfield
lias grown up like a mushroom. The sec
tion now represents a very populous field for
a railway and has no direct outlet to the
citv. The nearest way to get to the city i a
good walk to the Citizens' line on one side
or to Ben Venue or some of the other sta
tions on the railroad.
Before the traction line was built the fare
irora Pearl street to the city was 10 cents,
and on the line beinc built was reduced to
6 cents. This lor a time drew the Bloom
field people awav from the Pennsylvania
Railroad, and robbed the latter of many of
its former patrons. The traction compaoy
wishes to retain this patronage, and that is
why the proposed, line is under considera
tion. STILIj another line.
A charter was granted yesterday to the
Pittsbure Suburban Street Railway Com
pany of Pittsburg. The road commences on
joncaire street, at a point near the Junction
Bailroad, thence to Craig street, to Kidge,
to Brunot. to Arch, to Crescent, to Arch, to
Cliff", to Faber, to "Washington, to Seventh
avenue, to Liberty avenue, to Eighth street,
to Duquesne way, to Filth street, to Ferry,
to Second avenue, to Cherry alley, to Sev
enth avenue, and thence by same route to
place of beginning.
The line will be eight and a half miles
long, and be operated by electric power.
The capital stock is $60,000. The stock
holders are F. G. Kay, Harry McKnight,C.
H. Shinkle, James L. Kay, of Allegheny;
James Benney. Emsworth, and George M.
Brisbin, Osceola Mills. A reporter of The
JSPATCH called on Mr. Shinkle to learn
fnething about the electric system which
i to be adopted. However, the gentleman
id, matters were not yet in shape for pub
g Ration. He remarked that $60,000 was or
9J a urse not a large enough sum to build a
'ne of such a length.
KiiW CATHOLIC CEMETERY.
The Mount Carmcl Aiaoclatton Buj Ten
Acre on the rerrj.vllle Road.
The German Catholic community of Holy
Trinity Church, Center avenue, is to have a
new resting place for its dead. The present
burial place on "Webster avenue is not ca
pable of receiving many more bodies, and
steps have been taken iu time to secure
ground for a new cemetery.
Negotiations have been in progress for
some time past for the acquisition by the
incorporators of the "Mount Carmel Ceme
tery Association," often acres of ground on
the Pcrrysville road, situate about six miles
from the city. There is a substantial dwell
ing house on the land, which it is proposed
to rent. Ten thousand dollars is the price
mentioned for the land, and another $1,000
will be spent in properly inclosing the new
cemetery. Papers lor the charter have been
filed, and among the incorporators are the
Bt Bev. Bichard Phelan, D. D the Bev.

Leonard "Weaver and Bernard Fichenlaub.
An Ancient Ordlnnnce Exhnmed Which Fro
Tides runlnhmcnt for Fiends.
The banana and orange peel fiend is
likely at length to meet with his Nemesis.
Under an old city ordinance the act of
throwing peels on the sidewalk is deemed a
misdemeanor, subjecting the party on con
viction to a fine of from $1 to $5, or in de
fault ten days in jail. Proprietors of fruit
stands or stores are liable to a similar pen
alty in default of displaying a copy of the
ordinance in a prominent place.
Superintendent Weir has issued orders to
the police to arrest every one caught throw
ing peels on the pavements. The "hurry
up" wagon will have a lively time of it if
the police carry out their instructions, and
it is hoped that a lew convictions will serve
to abate this widespread nuisance.

Mr. Garrity, Superintendent of the Balti

position, and on Saturday the boys decided
'jo let him know what they thought of him
by presenting him with an elegant cane.
.During the resultant festivities, Messrs. J.

sang some selections in approved style,
which struck a responsive chord in Mr.
Garrity, and he joined in the musical part
of the programme.
A participant states that they had a jollv
good time, and that the demonstration was
a surprise to Mr. Garrity.
A Very Complete Arrangement.

SOME TEST CASES UP.
Knerclirr tbe Drnsslst, Fined by Alderman
Carlisle After Another Magistrate Tried
It Other Decisions.
At Alderman Carlisle's office yesterday
morning, the following interesting cases
were disposed of: A. F. Kacrcher, the Alle
gheny druggist, was charged with keeping
open and jelling on Sunday in violation of
the law. He was fined $25 and costs. Sir.
Kaercher, however, pleaded previous
action on the same case and talks ot appeal
ing to the higher courts. This will decide a
nice little point of law as to whether a pre
vious action should hare precedence.
There were four cases of the same sort
against John A. Martin, the milk shaker,
but they were continued until next week,
as the prosecution was not prepared.
Five charges of liquor selling ou Sunday
were heard. The defendants pleaded guilty
and were fined the customary 550 and costs.
Their names are withheld by the Alderman,
who claim that if made public they would
be under constant surveillance and subject
to attempted blackmail by men who make a
practice of going around and claiming to be
agents of the Law and Order League, and
threatening liquor dealers with exposure
unless they submit to their extortions.

INTERESTING DATA ON TIME BATING
Charles B. Darby, Inspector of Free De
livery Division of Postoffice Department,
Washington, has been in the city since
Tuesday, going over the territory covered
by the Pittsburg postoffice in its delivery of
matter. "When questioned nbout Tiis visit,
Mr. Darby said:
"I am here by order of the Postmaster
Genera, to report upon an application
made by your postmaster for an increase in
the number of carriers. I have been all
over the field in company with Frarik
Larkin, Superintendent of City Delivery,
and have been through the office, and I am
surprised at the character of the service.
When you consider the poor light, bad air
and overcrowded condition of the postoffice,
the adjustment of district lines and schedule
of service is the best that I have found any
where in the country, and the service itself
is first class.
"This city is growing very rapidlv in the
suburban portions, and it requires close at
tention from those in the postal service to
keep abreast of the growth in population.
"No one outside of the service realizes
the trouble in readjusting the lines of a car
rier's district when it becomes too large for
him to handle. It does not mean that his
district alone shall be contracted, but that
ail the lines in a group of districts
MUST BE BE-FORMED.
"That, of course, leads to confusion in
distribution and the formulation of new
schemes that the general public know very
little about. The man to whom mail matter
is first delivered before the lines are changed
may be thrown into an entirely new district
and at the end of the new route. He, of
course, objects to the change, and it is no
answer to say that his loss or iuconvenience
is the gain of a great many others." v
"How does the service here compare with
"I have said the service is first-class; but,
on account of the peculiar topography of
this city, you can never have a uniform
service that is, you can't serve every one
alike. Take the South district. The peo
ple living below the P., V. & C. B. B. get
three and four deliveries a day, and yet
those who live on a few rods south of them
get only one and two mails, and the reason
fortbat distinction is a good one: The
abrupt hills begin at the line of these rail
roads, and there is no use in talking about
serving the people who live along these
steep hillsides three or four times a day,and
theie is no business interest there to con
serve. Now, the man on the hillside com
plains that the people on the lower level and
those on the hill-top above get more consid
eration than he does."
"Is there not some justice in his com
plaint?" "None at all. He forgets that the people
on the top of the hill have provided an In
cline, and the carrier takes advantage of
that and goes up and delivers the mail first,
and then, if the hillside is in his district, he
walks down and gets rid of his load a he
comes down the hill, instead of carrying the
THEY AXWAYS WOBK DOWNWARD.
"How do you manage the tall buildings
that are going up to meet the demand for
"Much in the same way. The gentlemen
who do business in the ninth story of the
Hamilton building get their mail before
those on the second floor."
"That seems absurd."
"Yes, it does; but there are many things
just like that which, when explained, look
nil right. The carrier does just what he is
told to by the postmaster. Now, it would
take him an hour and a half to serve every
body in the building, if he began on the
first floor and worked up. He would either
have to carry a heavy load upstairs or stand
and wait for the elevator on every floor. To
save the load and make time heservs the
first floor, then takes the elevator and goes
right up to the root and delivers from there
down, and gets rid of the mail for 100 offices
in 21 minutes from the time he left the
"Time is, everything in the mail service,
and everything must be utilized, and you
may rest assured that a carrier will not car
ry a heavy load up a hill when he can ride
up and deliver the burden on his way
"How many new carriers will you al
"I can't tell you the number; that's a. de
partment matter, and it may or may not be
governed by my report However, I may
say that the allowances will meet the wants
ot the service here, and will not vary much
from the postmaster's intimations. He asks
for one collector and nine carriers."

THE WIDE SPREAD FAME OF THE
Ita Use In Parle and Other Enropean Cities
Tbe Hearty Recommendations It Re
ceives From Local Dealers.
The average American when abroad usu
ally misses among other things the good rye
whisky to which he is accustomed in this
country. Heretofore many American trav
elers carried with them a "canteen of their
favorite brand of whisky, but happily visit
ors to Paris and other European cities will
not need to burden themselves this season,
as the best brands of American liquor are
now to be procured at the best cafes and
hotels abroad. John B. Schlosser, formerly
proprietor of the Duquesne Hotel, ot this
city, just recently returned from Paris. "I
have always been a lover of French
drinks," he said yesterday, "but on my re
cent visit to Paris I was agreeably surprised
on enteiing the great American Hotel Chat
ham to find on sale that pure rye whisky
manufactured by the Large Distilling Com
pany of this city. The Chatham, you un
derstand, is on Bue Daunou, and is one of
the most prominent resorts .in Paris. I
found that .an abundance of the Large
whisky was being consumed there, and
everybody seemed to enjoy and admire the
famous beverage. I guess the Large wh sky
is-the best, as well as the best-known whisky
in the world."
But one does not have to go abroad for
hearty recommendations of the Large
whisky. It is better known in this country
than elsewhere, and its purity and popular
ity is attested by all who have ever used or
handled it. Bead the indorsements of a hxr
of our local dealers: From the old firm of
Henry Large, Jr., Esq., West Elizabeth, Pa.:
Deab Sib We are in receipt ot your
valued favor, and in reply take pleasure in
announcing to yon that we have no whisky
in stock that has given more general satis
faction to our trade than that produced by
you at your distillery at West Elizabeth.
Your brands ot whisky have grown very pop
ular among the best judges and connoisseurs
thronghout the land. We are shipping al

Deab Sib In reply to your recent letter
I can cheerfully say that from personal
knowledge I can recommend your whisky as
pure rye and first-class in every respect. It
never tailed to give satisfaction'in my trade.
I do not know that I can say anything too
strong in its favor, as I have handled many
good brands, but none with any more satis
factory results. BespectfuuT,
Henry Large. Jr., Esq., West Elizabeth, Pa. :
Deab Sib We used the Large whisky
in our business for many years, and it is
gratifying to aay we always found it up to
the standard represented. We had many
customers who used it exclusively. They
would not have any other. We yet have a
large stock of your excellent whisky. It is
.strictly pure, and is indeed a well-made ar
ticle. We frequently had orders for your
whisky from physicians, both for their own
use and for use in their practice.

pleasure to recommend the liquor. Nothing
too strong can be said, for the purity and re

just as recommended. Yours truly.

1,200 MEN'S SUITS
FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC CHEVIOTS.
Sack and frock styles, light and dark colors and all sizes from 33 to 42
inches breast measure. In the early part of this season Suits in every
way identical with these were sold at $12, $14, $15, $16 and even $18.
You can come in our store to-morrow morning and
TAKE TOUR CHOICE FOR 89 99 ONLY
Not a single suit will be reserved 1 All, every one of them will go. Mark
you this well: These Suits cannot be equaled in QUALITY, ONLY ON
PAPER, for less than $16 anywhere in this city. We were specially
fortunate in obtaining these suits just at the time we did and equally as
fortunate in being able to put them on sale at a time when our stock
was so badly broken up.
$9 99 is a Mere Song for Such
Grand Quality Suits
SHOULD AT LEAST COME AND SEE THEM.
There'll be no harm done if you don't buy and whether you come
as a purchaser or as one bent on finding out the truth or otherwise of
such a startling and sensational announcement, you'll be equally wel.
come. Now mind you this well: "We don't lose a cent on the sale of
these goods, and you can well imagine that we don't make on any one
suit more than would pay for a good breakfast for a hungry tramp. The
truth is we got 'em cheap and are content to sell 'em cheap, being satis
fied to reap whatever value there is in the advertisement, in being able
to sell at such a wonderfully low price, as our reward.
We must refuse to send any of these suits on approval, as they can't
be spared from the store not even for a few minutes. This destined-to-be
memorable sale commences in the morning and ends Saturday
next, but the earlier you come the better.
FIRMLY PLANT THE FACT IN YOUR MEMORY
THAT IT IS AT
ONLY YOU CAN
Is always read with interest by the thousands of readers of this
paper, because they know that it contains
"Always something new,
Never anything untrue."
It is safe toassert that no man or woman who has yet acted
upon the advice given in Keech's columns of truth hat ever
had any cause to regret it. Tlie reason is plain. Keech's es
tablishment is a decided Pittsburg institution a bundle and
parcel of the great Oas City, as it were looking out for its
future custom as much as for its present. It then naturally
follows that a concern like this cannot afford to treat its pat
rons in any but the most liberal and straightforward manner.
It is under these conditions that Keech's Mammoth House
Furnishing Emporium has grown to its present magnitude,
and it is reasonably sure to predict, will continue in the up
Might at present a visit to this store is of more than usual
interest, for the reason that there are many thousands of
dollars worth of
FINE FURNITURE of EVERY KIND
STYLISH CARPETS OF EVERY DESCRIPTION, .
which Keech is anxious to put into the hands of consumers
before the arrival of his tremendous new fall stock. This,
then, is a pre-eminently fit time to get bargains, and it goes
without saying that wise housekeepers will not fail to avail
themselves of the rare chance offered them,
BABY CARRIAGES, REFRIGERATORS
. Here is another point for reflection. The season for the
sale of these goods is now drawing to a close and, as Keech
is bound to effect a speedy and entire c earance of these neces
sary articles, you, the buyir, are the master of the situation.
You may entertain some mighty lofty expectations for bar
gains in Baby Carriages and Refrigerators now, and, rest
assured, you will not be disappointed.
Is it necessary to call your attention to Keech's slock of
Bric-a-brac, Silverware, House Furnishing Goods, Dry
Goods and Men's Clothing, and the low prices at which these
goods are now offered to you? Hardly.
