There is Plenty of it in Certain Sec
tions of the Kortkside.
Boiled or Distilled Water and Upper Bed
rooms Advised.
That there is always more or less typhoid
feTer in a large city daring or just after a
season of excessive heat, goes without saying.
That there is a greater proportion of this
malady in certain sections of Allegheny this
month than can be accounted for on any
ordinary basis, has been noted in these
columns heretofore. Attention being called
to the fact, it was merely "pooh-poohed,"
howerer, by the health authorities and
others of Allegheny. Xow this condi
tion of things still confronts the officials
and people of Allegheny. There are 25
cases of typhoid fercr in its General Hos
pital alone, and 22 or 23 cases of what the
attending physicians call typhoid in "West
Jefferson street, which runs along the base
of Observatory Hill, where the people,
after the Johnstown norror, took to drink
ing "pure spring water," running down
from the surface of the populous hill dis
trict. Health officers deny that there are so
many cases there, but admit that they have
not had time to investigate as to the fact.
To attribute this sickness all to that Ob
servatory Hill spring water, however, wonld
probably be a mistake, as some citizens who
have taken to drinking the water from even
the deep new wells in the park have been
sickened thereby, even as the people ot
Kansas City and St. Louis invariably suc
cumb to clearwater after turning from their
own tnmbler with its half inch of river sedi
ment to a clear, crystalline, sparkling bev
erage. It is the radical change of drinking
water rather than the direction of the
change, from good to bad, or vice versa,
that raises the mischief.
But, speaking of typhoid fever, water or
no water, a -well-posted physician in Jlead
ville has some interesting suggestions as to
its cause and ellect and the proper prevent
ive measures to observe. "Writing to this
journal, he says:
To the Editor or The Dispatch:
I understand that the citizens of Alle
gheny City are apprehensive that typhoid
lever will prevail among them in the near
future as an epidemic Permit me to say to
them through your popular journal that
they need not be in fear of such a calamity
if they will use the preventive means of
cause and effect, namely: That the preva
lence of typhoid fever as an epidemic is
caused by the general use of impure water,
and not from the atmosphere, as some sup
pose. I have had the deepest inter
est in this matter since 1818,
when I advanced the theory that
the prevalence of yellow fever was" caused
by the general use of water from cisterns
and wells. I urged the necessity of the use
of pure water as preventive of yellow and
typhoid fever as epidemics. At that time
there were so many that believed they were
victims or subjects of the special visitations
of Providence that what I said, and the
articles I had published in newspapers as
well as medical journals, had but little in
fluence with the people. I have continued
since that time to call attention to this sub
ject at times when I thought it might do
some good.
I know the people will have their preju
dices in common with some men who are
cultured, and who frown upon any new de
parture not found written in the books.
The means, however, of preventing
typhoid fever as an epidemic is, for each
family in city or country where it is likely
to prevail, to provide itself with pure water.
It is not only possible, but is easy for them
to do so, namely, boil the water one day for
use the next; boil for at least an hour and a
half; put into suitable vessels tightly corked
or covered, and set them in a cool place for
use the next day, or earlier if they wish it
If the water is colored with chaotic matter
it should be strained through fine cloth or
filtered before boiling.
Distilled water is the purest, and when
this can be had it will not be necessary to
use boiled water. The distilleries could, if
they would at such times, do an immense
amount of good by furnishing the people
With pure water instead of whisky.
There is also in the hot seasons impure
atmosphere, the breathing of which will
cause to some extent remittent and inter
mittent levers, particularly in those very
susceptible They will occur in cities and
places where the people are using pure
water; but in such cares are comparatively
The lower strata of atmosphere at night
are more highly charged with causes of
disease than the upper; consequently sleep
ing rooms in the second or third stories of
buildings tend to prevention of diseases
from atmospheric causes, and should always
be adopted by those who can do so.
Cause and effect therefore prove in spite of
the disbelief of the learned as well as un
lettered, that pure water prevents the spread
of typhoid and yellow fever as epidemics.
It is right that people should have confi
dence in the medical skill ot physicians. It
is the "vis" or nature however that cures
disease, and not medicines. They help
nature in the cure, but how can they be as
helpful when the feverish and thirsty bodies
are given the same impure water which
caused their illness? If there are
those who are so skeptical on this
subject that they will not supply
themselves with pnre water for gen
eral use before disease overtakes them, by
all means, when they are stricken down thev
should have pure water to drink. It wifl
.-o far toward lessening degradations of the
body which might otherwise poison the blood
in a manner that would cause premature
death. B. Beows "Williams, M. D.

Is the Rule Applied by the President to
Republican Who Wish to Re
torn to Office The Discovery
Prove DUconraclne.
"Washington, July 20. Some of the
office seekers are discouraged by a recent
discovery that it is not the policy of the ad
ministration to restore to office the Repub
licans that held office for many years and
weie removed by Cleveland.
A conspicuous instance has just occurred
that seems to illustrate the decision of the
administration in this respect. A Sir.
Johnson, a Federal soldier, who has a good
army record, was for many years Superin
tendent of Hails in the Treasury Depart
ment. He was removed early in the ad
ministration of Cleveland, and his removal
was generally reported to have been because
of his politics. At all events, he was suc
ceeded by an aggressive Democratic poli
3fr. Johnson was connected with the Ee
publican National headquarters during the
campaign, and was stationed at New York.
He expected to be restored to his old place,
for which he was an applicant, bnt to-day
ex-Congressman Nichoils, of North Caro
lina, who was one of the defeated aspirants
for Public Printer, was appointed Superin
tendent of Mails in piace ot the Democratic
incumbent who resigned.
Mr. Johnson is very much surprised and
disappointed that he did not receive his old
position. The cx-Congrcssman is, ofcourse,
very much pleased to get even this minor
place, having failed to secure the much
more important one to which he aspired.
A similar instance has just occurred in
the case of Major Clark, who for many years
was a Chief of Division in the Land Bureau,
but who was removed by Cleveland. He
made a personal application to the Presi
dent for restoration pa the ground that he
was a good soldier, a good Republican, and
an .experienced official. He attached special
importance to the fact that no complaints of .
any kind were made against him, and that
he was simply removed under the Cleveland
administration in order to make room lor a
Democrat. It is reported that Mr. Clark
was asked how long he had been in office,
and that the answer which he was compelled
to give was "23 years." The answer that
Major Clark is said to have received was
that it was not necessarily the policy of the
administration that men who had been so
long in office should be restored to their
former places, and that it would be better
politics to appoint those who had been more
active recently, in connection with political
affairs, and who had rendered the party
more emcient service.
lie Wm Locked Up by the United States
Express nnd Aska Fay for It.
Chicago, July 20. H. B. Chapman
commenced suit to-day in the Circuit Court
against the United States Express Company,
Thomas C. Piatt, George E, Blanchard, C.
H. Crowley, Daniel P. Eels' and C. S.
Brice, as directors of the company, and in
dividually, Joseph Sheppard, Deo E. Long,
Alfred F. Jones and Frederick Marsh.
The suit is for $50,000 on one action in tres
pass. Charles S. Miller, the plaintiff's at
torney, could not be found, but the case is
supposed to be the outgrowth of a matter
settled abontfouryearsago. Some years prior

of embezzlement. He was convicted and
and sent to the penitentiary, though always
protesting his innocence. After his release
from the penitentiary he was arrested on an
action for debt on the amount stolen, and
was locked up in jail, wnere, lor a long
time, the express company paid his board.
He was released from jail about four years

For Declining: to Grant Any Sehearings in

The Total Still Short of Three- Quarters of
a Minion for Johnstown.
Yesterday's contributions to the Johns
town relief fund amounted to 324 45. The
total amonnt now is $765,317 43. The several
amounts received yesterday were as follows:
Union Sabbath school, of Bossville. Kan.,

who is now at Johnstown, is expected home
Judge Ewing called the attorneys, who
had petitioned him to reconsider the retail
liquor license decisions, into Common Pleas
No. 2, yesterday, to hear his decision. He
prefaced it with these words:
"This is my opinion and I do not know
what the other two Judges who sat in Quar
ter Sessions, in March last, may think of
the matter. I feel, however, that the case
demands a speedy determination, and there
fore hand down this opinion."
The act of Assembly requiring the Court of
Quarter Sessions to hear and pass upon appli.
cations for license to sell liquor at retail im
poses on the Judge or Judges sitting the exer
cise of a discretion which cannot be judiciously
exercised without hearing the cases, unless in
the exceptional cases where the Judge has
f nil personal knowledge of the locality of the
house and the applicant.
First Not having sat in Quaxtor Sessions
durinc the March term, I do not feel qualified
to pass upon the cases and grant licenses with
out a rehearing. This would be impracticable
unless the civil business of our court should
lor the time being be abandoned.
Second Eren if the first objection were out
of the way, I gravely doubt the power of tbe
Court to reopen the cases at this late day.
These case were all heard in March and April,
and after hearing and consideration the orders
refusing tbe licenses wero Issued April 22, lSS'J,
at tbe March term.
The June term of court began on Monday,
June 3. This petition was filed July 13. It has
been decided and is settled law that the Court
of Common Pleas has no power to entertain
proceedings to open or reviso the judgments
entered on full hearing after the term of court
at wnicn tne juagment nas been entered. Tlie
same rule applies to sentences andjadgments
in tbe Court of Quarter Sessions. There is no
good reason why a decision entered granting
or ret nsing a license should not be governed by
the same rule. To grant the petition and re
open tbe cases would be a bad precedent.
Third After full consideration I am satis
fied that, looking to the future, neither the
public interest nor the ultimate interests of the
petitioners would be promoted by a further
consideration of the cases. By March, 18!X, we
will be better able than now to estimate the
effect oft the recent decision of the Supreme
Court. For these and otber reasons Idechneto
interfere in the decisions heretofore rendered.
Josiah Cohen, one of -the counsel of the
liquor men on the license question, when
asked his opinion of Judge Ewing's refusal
to grant a rehearing yesterday, said:
"I have not as yet seen the associate coun
sel and consequently cannot say what we
shall do in the matter. I have read the
reason given by Judge-Ewing in defense of
nis opinion with considerable interest, and
must say that I am surprised. I was in
hopes that the Court would construe a li
cense hearing asa quasi judicial proceeding,
in which case the rule that a final judg
ment entered at one term cannot be changed
or altered at another term of the same court,
would not govern. I do not think that an
appeal will be made to the Supreme Court.
I consider that it would be futile to attempt
it. However, the article published this
afternoon is merely the personal opinion of
one man. "We do not know yet what his
associates will do, and until then it would
be absurd to talk on the matter."
A number of ex-retail liquor dealers-were,
interviewed. They still have a hope that
by September Judges White andMagee
may do something for them. All were dis
appointed by yesterday's result.
Judge Collier yesterday transferred the
liquor license of James Borlin, of Jerome
street,McKcesport, to Augnst McKay. This
is the first transfer of a retail license that
has been made in Allegheny county under
the Brooks law, except in cases of death
where the license was transferred to an heir.
The wholesale license of Leonard Bauwolf,
of the Eleventh ward, was transferred to
George Gotthart.
ness. was to be increased 3 per centum,
amounting to 5(53,579, for thepurpose of con
structing a system of sewers throughout the
borough. The rote on the question stood
334 in favor ot increasing the indebtedness
and 89 against it, deciding the matter in
favor of haying the sewers.

of Public Charity petitioned the Quarter Ses
sions Court yesterday to order the removal of
Catherine Herman and Ellen Fox, two Insane
patients, from the. City Home to Dixmont.
Charles Abbott yesterday entered suit
against the "Western Pennsylvania Writing
Telegraph and Telephone Company, and the
city of Pittsburg. Abbott is a farmer, and
claims that while driving down Birmingham
hill bis horse stepped on a loose wire belonging
to the company and was Killed. The city, is is
claimed, was negligent in allowing tbe wire to
remain on the street. A boy who was in the
wagon with Mx. Abbott, it is claimed, was
severely shocked, and is still semi-paralyzed.
Jbdoe Slaole yesterday granted a new
trial in the case of James W. Fnond against
the city of Pittsburg. The suit was on a bond
for 2,137, given for tbe grading and paving
of Main street in the old borough of Temper
anceville. Interest was claimed on the bond
for the time after it had matured, bnt the
Controller rof nsed to pay the interest holding
that tho bond had been called in. at maturity.

Syeacuse, K. Y., July 20. A dispatch
from Alexandria Bay sayi that at an early
hour this morning a feud broke out between
a lot of 'longshoremen and the col

known as "Cross-Eved John," created a
disturbance in Flack's saloon, and
was put out by the proprietor, 'who called
several of the hotel waiters to his assistance.
Last night Gladd organized a gang of 40
men, went to the saloon where the waiters
were holding a "sacred concert," and pro
ceeded to forcibly eject them.
A fracas ensued, in which knives, strips
of gaspipe, billiard cnes and fence pickets
were conspicuously used. Several of the
belligerents were tcriouslv injured. "Dea
con" Blackman, head waiter, was severely
cut about the face. After a fight with the
police tne moo was dispersed.

Now Suits Also Commenced Before Judge
Judge Slagle, yesterday, handed down, an
opinion in the divorce case of Robert CI Mc
Adams against Margaret Earley McAdams.
In a Saturday, night raid on the hotel the
officers captured, among others, McAdams
and Miss Maggie Earley, who were in a
room together. They were locked up in
Central station, and on Monday the two
were united in marriage in the office of
Chief Brown. McAdams left his wife in
front of City Hall and immediately sued for
a divorce. He claimed that he- had been co
erced into the marriage by Detective Coul
son and others, who threatened it be did not
marry Miss Earley to send him to prison:.
Mrs. McAdams held that there had been
no compulsion at ali in the case, and that
McAdams married her of his own free will.
Pending a decision in the- case Mrs. Mc
Adams applied to court for an allowance
from her husband. He was ordered to pay
her 54 a week and her counsel fees. Mean
while McAdams left the city, but through.
nis attorney petitioned the court to reduce
the amonnt of the allowance. Mrs. Mc
Adams filed a counter petition to hare these
proceedings stayed until the arrears of the
allowance had been paid.
Judge Slagle, in his opinion on the two
petitions, said that it was rather unseemly
lor McAdams to petition the Court, at the
same time placing himself out of. Us juris
diction and speaking through an agent. For
this reason he refused to reduce the allowance
and granted a stay ot proceedings until the
arrears of the allowance had been paid.
A divorce was refused by Judge Slagle
yesterday in the case of Elizabeth Mason
against John Mason. The divorce had been
asked for on the ground of indignities to her
person. In his opinion Judge Slagle said
that the proof snowed no actual violence.
That there had been threats on one or two
occasions, and that Mason frequently got
drunk and then made serious charges
against his wife, but there was nothing to
show that her lile had been made burden
some and her condition unbearable, which
wa.s required in order-to obtain a divorce.

Griffiths against Sarah Griffiths. Indigni

The two first named made tbe award, and
when it was filed .Messrs. O'Brien & Yager,
attorneys for the Columbia Iron-tind SteeL

it was to be submitted without exception or
appeal, and the case will now go to a jury

You majrprobabIy have noticed that within the past three weeks we almost centered our efforts in the mighty
task of reducing our then entirely too large a stock of fine Dress Suits, and it now pleases us to state that our
undertaking has been pre-eminently successful. Where but one month ago we were wont to see piles of fine
garments apmost ceiling high they have now melted down, under the pressure of big reductions, like snow before
the Marchsun. Of course, it was a game in which we held the losing hand and the people "raked in every pot,"
but we have to-day the satisfaction of being spared from a fate far worse in the eyes of the live, enterprising1
merchant that of being compelled to pack goods away and carry them over to next year.
But, while we will not have any fine Dress Suits left on our hands, we may .get "stuck" on our large assort
ment of Business Suits, the sale of which was greatly retarded by the run we've been having on Dress Suits.
By the ferm "Business Suits" we mean garments made from stylish, nobby, non-dirt showing, strictly reliable
materials, usually retailed at $12, $13, $14 and $15. They are suitable not only for business men, but also for
the large army of professional men, clerks, bookkeepers and hundreds of others whose calling requires neat and
stylish dress.' Now,' then, in order to immediately and considerably reduce our stock of these Suits, it is plain that
we must pursue the same tactics as in our sale of fine Dress Suits, and, with this object in view, we will commence
to-molrrow morning to ,
LET 'EM GO FOR $7 50.
(Thisj offer should cause you to think and reflect, for it is unparalleled in the annals of the clothing trade.
Remember, this sale includes over 4,000 stylish and desirable Suits, made according: to the latest prevailing; styles.
and( intrinsically worth from $12 to $15, while we offer you choice from the entire assortment for only Seven Dol
lars and fifty cents. At this price we are confident it won't take us long to dispose of these Suits. The business
men of Pittsburg are shrewd; they know a good thing when they see it; and they will not be long in arriving at
the conclusion that these Suits are the best bargains ever offered them. '
t, if you're wise, you'll provide for your comfort before you leave. It makes no difference where you go to
the seashore, the mountains, the lake sides or the country Old Sol will be there and 11 make it hot for you. It
s necessary then that you supply yourself with a thin Coat and Vest, some Flannel Shirts, some Gauze Under
vear, a pair of low-cut Shoes, a Straw Hat, or one of our feather-weight Derbys or, what's still better, one of our
light Crush or Traveling Hats. Another thing: Speaking of travels, trips and excursions reminds us of our vast
Trunk and Satchel department, where we keep a complete assortment of tourists' requisites, including Hammocks
and Hammock Chairs. You will consult your own' interest by visiting this place before buying elsewhere.
there are now many interesting things for the Ladies of Pittsburg. We have too many Jerseys, too many Flannel
Blouses, too many Children s Dresses, but if prices can be made low enough to induce people to buy them, we
,vill sell most of them this week. Here is an example: 600 Ladies neat Flannel Blouses, in stripes, plaids andu
hecks, atonly 74c for your choice. This is less than the cost of the bare flannel in them. y
If you haven't, don't postpone it any longer. Consternation is the triief of time, the. thief of opportunities, the
thief of bargains. Remember, this sale includes our entire stock of Men's, Ladies and Children's Low-Cut
.Shoes, tan and russet shoes. Here is an indicator: Ladies' good tan 'Oxfords for 75c We need say no more.
