KCerribly Tragic Affair Among
Italian Ditch Diggers.
OTO GANGS AT WAEFABE,
And One of Their Foremen, a Pitts
burger, Impaled on a Pickaxe,
TURNS AND KILLS HIS ASSAILANT.
BeTeral Men Injured and Half a Dozen
THE IKQUEST AND THE BAD OUTLOOK
"What promised to bo a most serious riot
occurred yesterday morning among the
Italian latorers employed upon the new
pipe line of the Monongahela National Gas
Company, near Cooper's Mills, Fallowfield
township, Washington county, in which
one man was tilled and several wounded,
and one was seriously. But few particulars
could be learned by The Dispatch re
porter, who hastened from the city to the
scene, as the Italians, who were almost the
only witnesses, refused to talk.
As far as can be learned, the trouble
originated in an argument between two ri
val contractors. One named George Butche,
whose Pittsburg address is.Hotel Boma,1132
Penn avenue, had a gang of 35 men em
uloved at filling in the ditch.
As only about a dozen were needed for
the work, the Superintendent, H. C. Young,
ordered him to transfer a portion of his men
to the control of another contractor, named
Joe, to be used in digging. This he re
fused to do, and, calliug his men off, he
' went to the other's quarters and proceeded
to insult him. One word led to another,
until Butche struck Joe a severe blow in
the face, whereupon the latter's cang
jumped out of the ditch and started for
Butche and party, who were not at all back
ward IT WAS FBICHTFUIj.
For a few minutes the battle was waged
furiously; heads, arms and faces were badly
cut Finally one of Joe's men, whose name
cannot be learned, rushed up behind Butche
and dealt him two blows with a pickaxe,
one of which crushed through the skull,
and came out on the left side of his head,
below the ear.
Butche wheeled instantly, and, drawing
a revolver, fired into the crowd, striking a
workman named Grombatista Bicci and
instantly killing him. As he fell the
others ceased their warfare, and, with excla
mations of horror, threw aside their tools
end fled in all directions.
Bucthe's assailant was struck by a shovel,
and his head was laid open. He, however,
took to the woods and has not been seen
The body of the murdered man lay on the
ground from 8:30 a. at. to 5 o'clock p. M.
when it was taken to Monongahela City.
Butche was also taken there on the 4 o'clock
train, and received medical attention. He
is not expected to live.
ABRESTS TVEBE MADE.
Fivc of the ringleaders were arrested by
Marshal McCleary and Constable Bohanna,
and are now in jail in Monongahela City.
They will receive a hearing to-day.
The Italians are terribly excited over the
affair. No work was done on the ditch
yesterday, and visitors to the camp were
looked upon with much suspicion. A gang
of 25 new workmen Irom Pittsburg were ex
pected last night, and, from all appear
ances, their reception was to be anything
but a pleasant one.
Coroner J. F. Kennedy, of Mononaghela
City, has impaneled a jury, consisting of
the following named citizens: J. M. Grable.
F. E. Baird, W. C. Hodill. W. C. Bobiu
son, and B. F. Bently.
The Italians have carved a large cross on
the tree where the victim: fell, and per
formed a most peculiar religious ceremony
in connection. An interpreter who tried to
obtain some information lor The Dispatch
representative was uncermoniously ejected
from the camp.
George Butche has merely been in the
habit of boarding at the Hotel Boma, 1132
Penn avenue. He had not put in an ap
pearance there, however, since Saturday
morning, and Mr. Passctti, the proprietor,
stated lost night that Butche's movements
had been extremely uncertain.
A MARK OP APPRECIATION.
General Superintendent J. B. ration In
Tendered a Banqnct.
J. B. Patton, the General Superintendent
of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, had a
banquet tendered him by tbo Amcricus
Club last night at the Hotel Duquesne, as a
mark of appreciation for the many kind
nesses he had accorded to the first relief
corps that went to Johnstown.
The hotel parlor, where the dinner was
held, presented a very attractive appear
ance. The dining table, exquisitely decor
ated with a display of beautnul plants and
flowers, harmonized admirably with the de
tails of the menu.
There were ten gentlemen present beside
Mr.-Patton, and the evening was passed in
an enjoyable manner. About 11 o'clock a
piano was rolled into the room, and a musi
cal was given as a continuation of the
Messrs. "Walter Lyon. William Flinn,
Samuel Warmcastle.'D. L. Gillespie, Harry
Paul, Tom Hudson, Alexander McCandless,

CHLOROFORM AND KOBBEEI.
Two Rather Bluconrn ainc Element! Charles

Last night Charles Smith, huckster, re
ported to Officer David Smith, of the South
side force, that he had been robbed of $53
while sleeping in Trenhausen's stable, in
the Southsiae Diamond. He alleges that
he fell asleep while waiting lor his wagon
to come in, and that someone chloroformed
him with a saturated handkerchief. Be
sides the money, he had two watches in his
clothes, a gold one aud a silver one. and
these, he also says, were taken. The rob
bery is said to have been committed on
Saturday night or Sunday morning.

at the corner of Filth avenue and Tunnel

Tunl ! the Theory Upon Which llio First
South Fork Snlt Is Baaed Attorney fllc
Lewis McMullen, Esq., attorney for Mrs.
John A. Little in her suit against the South
Fork Fishing Club, yesterday stated the
grounds on which he intends io conduct the
prosecution. The members of the fishing
club are, he says, individually guilty of a
tort. They undertook to perform a work,
and that work lias proved defective. Thus
every one of them is held to be guilty of
negligence, and if so must pay for his guilt.
"But several members of the club," it
was suggested, "had no cognizance of the
defective nature of the South Fork dam.
Several had never even been to South
Mr. McMullen admitted that such men
were not actually guilty, and said he did
not think they could be made to pay up. It
was the object of. the prosecution, however,
to accuse all the members. Those who did
not know of the inability of the dam to
stand the strain could easily prove that ig
norance. But every well-informed man who
had visited the spot could, he thought, have
foretold the danger. Consequently all
habitues of the club grounds were, in his
Mr. McMullen intended to have filed the
papers for the action at30 P. M., but didn't
file them until 4:30, on Saturday last; but,

THE CENTURY PLANT.
Rarely Flowering; Specimen Now
Bloom In New York City.
In view of the fact that a century plant Is
expected to be iu bloom at the residence of
Mr. Darlington, near Gugasuta, it may De
interesting to know that a similar flower
is now attracting a great deal of attention
on Cortlandt street, New York City.
This rarely flowering plant came from the
botanical garden of the large and handsome
Ponce De Leon Hotel at St. Augustine,
Fla. It was transplanted in a tub and was
brought North on a steamship. It is cow
the property of a seed grower on Cortlandt
The flower is 25 feet high and has 14
sprays. At the end of each spray, except
one, is a cluster of unbudded flowers.
When all these flowers are in bloom there
will be 2,800 blossoms on the plant. One
cluster of about 200 blossoms is now out. It
is yellow and green and each blossom is
simply the yeilow stamen hanging above
the green leaves which had inclosed it.
The century plant gets its name from the
saying that it blooms once in a hundred
years. But the fact is that it flowers at any
time from 10 to 70 years. In Arizona, New
Mexico and Mexico, where the plant grows
wild, it usually blooms at the age of 25
years. After bursting into bloom it always
dies. The flowering marks the end of its

CAMP MEETINGS MAY BE DROPPED.
Voluntary Contrlbntion Worked in Con
junction With Retrenchments.
THE ANNUAL BUSINESS TRANSACTED
The annual business meeting of the Alle
gheny Valley Campmeeting Association
took place yesterday at 4 o'clock in the
afternoon. The meeting was rather slimly
attended, only a limited number of lot
owners taking part in the business of the
day. President Sampson presided, 'and
Treasurer William Freeman read his report
for the year ending July 29, 18E9. 'The
receipts from all sources were given as
$1,449 56, and the disbursements for an
identical period were $1,199 88, leaving a
balance in the treasury of $249 68.
Comparison with the receipts of the pre
vious year, ending July 29, 1888, shows that
the receipts of $1,694 67 were very nearly
equaled by the expenditures of $1,525 24.
As the year ending yesterday was the first
trial of voluntary contributions at the
campmeetings as against the practice of
charging a regular admission fee at the gate,
the advocates of the abolishment of gate
fees are much gratified by the fact that the
new method showed a substantial balance
in the treasury at the expiration of the first
year of trial.
It will be remembered that a very ani
mated controversy arose over this matter at
the annual meeting two years ago. So
much feeling was occasioned bytheadoption
of the system of voluntary contributions
that a serious split was nearly brought
about in the association.
Mr. Freeman further reported that
although $400 worth of lots were disposed
of by the association in 1887-8, no sales had
been made in 1888-9. The sum of $500 was
paid last fall upon the mortgage, reducing
it to $2,500. There is no floating debt upon
the association at the present time.
EETRKNCnilENT IN EXPENSES.
Mr. Freeman subsequently explained to a
reporter that the decrease in expenses dur
ing the'past year, amounting to $325 36 as
compared with the previous year, was the
result of the new policy of retrenchment
in the matter of securing speakers from the
leading cities. Formerly the native talent
was not esteemed a drawing card, and it
was deemed necessary to secure noted men,
whose expenses had to be met, proving a
drain upon the association for which no
adequate return was made in the way of in
creased receipts. It will be noted that,
with the exception of Bishop Joyce, the at
tractions presented in the campmeeting
programme are entirely of a local nature.
It is also stated that the above rule will be
rigidly adhered to in the future, as a test
has proven that local clergymen are amply
able to ''draw."
At a very small expense a fine cemented
receptacle for the large sprint, on the path
leading to theamphitheater has been finished
and a pump put down. The water is de
licious, and even with 5,000 people upon
the grounds on a hot day, using water liber
ally, tbe spring has shown no indication of
excessive use. Some of the ladies resident
upon the grounds, among them Mrs. J. E.
Porter, are agitating the project of a tennis
ground, and it is quite likely that some
vacant lots belonging to Mr. Joseph D.
Weeks and others will be leveled off and
transformed into a tennis ground, the use of
which will be restricted to ladies of the
Each lot owner with a cottage is taxed $5
per annum, and Treasurer Freeman had a
goodly pile of greenbacks, as yesterday was
settling day. Lot owners having no im
provements are taxed $3 per annum upon
CAMPMEETINGS LOSE INTEREST.
A lot owner at Valley Camp chatted very
freely in regard to future plans of the Val
ley Camp Association. It is learned that
the time is not far distant when campmeet
ings as a distinctive feature of tbe heated
season will be discontinued. The reasons
given are, in a way, conclusive. The de
nominational aspect of the place as a sum
mer rescrt is gradually changing each year.
The social features are constantly getting
stronger, and within a few years it will not
be surprising if Valley Camp becomes to
Pittsburg what Tuxedo Park is to New
York City. It is certain that the popularity
of Valley Campas a heated-term residence is
on the increase. Although the association
has sold no lots this year, a number
of lot onjiers have made sales of surplus
holdings, and a large number of new cot
tages are promised for next season. As the
summer community increases, the desire
for privacy will grow stronger, and the
inevitable feeling of exclusiveness which
has to govern social resorts where the ut
most freedom must prevail among tbe resi
dents, will have such a bearing upon the
future of Valley Camp that the public will
be gradually excluded. The problem of
meeting the annual expenses of the associa
tion will not be very serious in view of the
fact that the expenses of last year, $1,200,
would have been materially lessened if
there had been no campmeeting held.
There are 104 lot owners, and it is believed
that a system of even taxation would effect
ually supply the place of the collections
taken up at camp meetings. It is a matter
of fact, however, that tbe abandonment of
campmeetings is uuder consideration.
It was also stated that a handsome new
hotel is projected to take the place of the
present venerable and behind-the-times

,TIIE FIDELITY'S NEW QUARTERS.
Appreciative Visitors on the Occnalon of
the Openlne Ycaterday.
The magnificent new back and safe de
posit of the Fidelity Title and Trust Com
pany, on Fourth avenue, was formally
opened for business yesterday. It is a reve
lation in the line of commodious arrange
ments and elegant appointments. Hundreds
of visitors, business men and others, besides
those directly interested in the success of
the institution, called during the day, and
President J. B. Jackson and Secretary Mc
Vey were the recipients of the highest com
pliments UDon tbe good judgment and good
taste shown everywhere through the estab
lishment. The sense of roominess and the abundance
of light are notable features all through tbe
building, but particularly upon the ground
floor, where the banking and safe deposit
quarters of the Title and Trust Company
are situated. There was already a cheerful
activity on the premises yesterday, and
when all the details are in perfect order,
which will be within a day or two, the fa
cilities for the transaction of business will
not be surpassed and will scarcely be
equaled by any of the most extensive bank
ing and deposit companies of the East.
.For an institution of comparatively recent
organization the Fidelity has met with
great success. In establishing itself solidly
in quarters of its own, and at the same time
contributing a handsome architectural ad
dition, costing several hundred thousand
dollars, to the city, it highly commends it

How a Sliding Scale is Mado for
Miners in Far South Wales.
SECRETS OP A FINE-COMB PLAN.
Talk of a Mine Auditor Who Controls Coal
Prices of the World.
AMERICAN SIGHTS FOR AN ENGLISH ETE
In this ackn owledged center of iron and
steel, coal and coke, it may be interesting
to read of some of the methods employed in
far off South Wales to maintain perfect
equality between master and man and to
handle the tremendous coal output that
controls the markets of the world. A
gentleman thoroughly acquainted with these
questions, both by natural ability and
official position, is Charles Edward Parsons,
an Englishman born, but a thorough Welsh
man by education.
Mr. Parsons, with James Evans, of Bris
tol, England, is visiting a relative here, A.
B. Wigley, of the Dun Agency, and in an
interview in this city last evening the fol
lowing interesting facts were learned of tbe
methods employed in the Welsh collieries,
by means of which the sad scenes at Braid
wood and the trouble in this vicinity are
The Colliery Association is one vast com
pany, or compromise agreed upon between
master and man, in order to obviate these very
troubles spoken of. It controls the vast output
of the mines of South Wales that controls the
markets of tbe world, and this association
governs, as one man, the 175,000 miners em
ployed. The means employed to do this may
sonnd strango to an American, bnt tbey are a
recognized necessity in a country where every
G BOUND down: to ait edge
exceedingly fine. This means is arbitration, in
the form of the Colliery Association, that has
now for nine years preserved peace and unity
between employer and employe.
There have been a few local disturbances in
these mines lately, and as a result this combi
nation of collieries has changed the examina
tion of books and the establishment of the
sliding scales from once in four months to onco
This Colliery Association is a sort of compro
mise aereed upon between employer and em
ploye; a guarantee against strikes of any kind
(except mere local disturbances), as all differ
ence' are referred to a council composed of
half employers and half employes. The em
ployers, who have all joined this association,
pay so much dues per week, and, should a
strike occur, each firm is paid from this sum a
certain per cent on what should have been
their output of coal. Tbe men are just as well
represented, and all their grievances are settled
by this council.
As the sliding scalo that Is now in effect
provided for some four months ahead, tbe
miners are somewhat disgruntled, since coal is
higher, and they claim they are not receiving
their just wages. In order to obviate this it
has been decided that tbe books bo examined
and the scale be declared every three months,
and daring the late difficulty the employers
bad voluntarily made a concession to the men
that, they have but lately ascertained, was
entirely justifiable, as shown by tbo books of
Mr. Parsons is one of the two auditors,
who have a most difficult task to perform.
They must be just to 315 colliery owners on
the one side, and they must be just to 175,
000 men on the other. Every three months
they must audit the books of these 315 firms.
A HOST EXACTING TASK.
They must closely examine the cost of
production, ot storage, of tolls, railroad
rates, clerkage, shipment, taxes, and a thou
sand and one things idcident to each mining
district; then, after it is all finished, from,
the totals the official selling price of coal
per ton is officially made up, to last for the
succeeding three months. Continuing his
chat, Mr. Parsons said, in substance:
This is an important thing to the miners, this
price of coal, as it not only regulates the
pounds, shillings and pence that must be paid
lor an output amounting to 15,000,000 tons per
year, but It also regulates their wages, as their
sliding scale IS based upon this fixed price of
coaL The workers, however, are generallywell
represented, and any mooted question is at
once referred to that magical peacemaker, ar
bitration, for the country over there
has recognized the necessity of agree
ing upon one thing between employer
and employe, and that is compromise.
There is one matter ot difference, however,
that will probably soon be settled. Tho sliding
scale of wages has been fixed at foarpenny
rests. That is, the wages on the sliding scale
would not be changed unless tbe selling price
of coal justified a foarpenny (S cents) change of
wages iu the sliding scale. The men are dis
satisfied with this, however, and in all proba
bility Auditor Parsons' suggestion will be ac
cepted, and tbe sliding scalo will be made to
operate at "tuppence" (4 cents) a jump.
The efficiency of this arrangement is shown
by tho fact that it has been in operation for
nearly ten J ears,and there have been no strikes
and no trouoles, except a few local and special
affairs, caused generally by private differences,
and easily adjusted.
NOT ALL COALS TO NEWCASTLE.
This coal, placed in tbe hands of some dozen
men (tbe auditors and council), who control
the world's markets. Is shipped to Cardiff,
Swansea and Newport. 'The old saying must
Ube amended, for Cardiff bandies more coal
than any port some i.,iaai,imi tons, ana iar in
advance of Newcastle, which comes next, and
then Newport close in rivalry.
It was noticed by the visitors that
the large mines about here were
worked more from headings, while there
the product generally came from pits
and shafting. The method of working,how
ever, was the same, though the gentlemen
were amazed to hear there was no head, and,
in fact, no tail to mining operations in this
country. It was not fair, they thought, to
compare wages paid here with those p lid to
the miners in Sonth Wales, as Conditions
were so different. They said, however, the
best aud steadiest miner made some $6 or $7
per week there by bard work.
A peculiar source of difference has come
up there lately between employer and em
ploye, and that is the Monday holiday,
coming every Monday in the month. Every
worker to a soul takes a holiday, and as a
result they come straggling in td work the
Wednesday, Thursday ana even Saturday
following their lively holiday.
satueday is wanted.
As this affects a tremendous number of
men, the loss to employers is something
enormous, and as a result they are trying to
enforce a Saturday holiday every month,
while the men stick out staunchly lor the
Monday holiday, with a full week" to sober
The three gentlemen, Messrs. A. B. Wig
ley, Charles Edward Parsons and James
Evans, will leave lor Butler county bright
nnd early this morning, and though Mr.
Wigley can't show them a colliery run on

an oil well that will cause them to tell fairy
stories in Wales for the next ten years. The
two visitors wind up their merry jauct
through America on the sttamer tfmbria,
for Liverpool, next Saturday.
In this connection it may also be stated
that Baron B. DeSoltenboff.whois tbe repre
sentative of Mr. Evance Cappee, of Brus
sels, Belgium, the head of the American
Cappee Coke Company, limited, has come
to this city to make final arrangements tor
the formation of the American Cappee Coke
Company, in this city.
This corporation has been already in ex
istence in Pittsburg about six months, and
Mr. C. B. Vaughan is the managing direc
tor. They propose to put up a plaut in the
vicinity of Pittsburg as soon as a suitable
location has been found by them.
Tbe Cappee Coke Company claim the
possession of a novel idea of manufacturing
coke, by which they expect to revolutionize
the coke business of this city.

Messrs. Costello nnd Ilea Talk of tbe Situa
tion Anions Knlsuts of Labor Holding
Their Own nt I'reient.-
John Costello, member of the Executive
Board of the Knights of Labor, arrived in
the city yesterday on his way home from
the West. He attended the meeting of the
Executive Board in Chicago, but would
give little news of the proceedings, beyond
what has been already published in The
Dispatch. In regard to the quarrel be
tween the Knights of Labor and the Feder
ation over the granting of a charter to the
alleged non-union slate roofers of this city,
he said the board had not received any
protests against the Issuance of the charter
until after the document had been given to
the local assembly. The latter had the
charter for some time before any communi
cation had been received from President
In regard to the state of the order, Mr.
Costello said they were holding their own.
In 'some places, especially in the West,
they are numerically increasing in strength,
while at other points there is a small falling
off. He expects to see over 150 delegates at
the General Assembly, to be held in
Savannah, Ga., in October.
Mr. Costello would not state what special
Pittsburg business would come up at the
General Assembly. As to the Campbell
matter, he would not talk. When asked
whether he thought the resolution con
demning the action of Homer L. McGaw
and Joseph L. Evans (whose expulsion from
the order, L. A. 300 demands) would come
up, he did not care to express any opinion.
Mr. Costello said the coal mines owned
by the order at Cannellburg, Ind., have
just been re-leased by the Executive Board
to a paying company. The mines are being
worked to their fullest capacity.
John B. Eae, Master Workman of N. D.
A. 135, Knights of Labor, who worked in
the mines with Mr. Costello, was also in
the city yesterday. He was going to Lime
ton, where he made an address to the miners
last evening. Beyond building up the
order he stated that he had not been doing
anything of significance. He says that their
reports show an increase of about 1,000
members in the vicinity of Frugality, where
the miners are very enthusiastic. Those
who are not members are flocking into the
order at every meeting.
Eighty-five colored coal miners left this
city yesterday afternoon for the little min
ing town of Union, British Columbia, CO
miles from Victoria, to work in the mines
of the Union Colliery Company. The coal
is shipped to San Francisco, where it is re
tailed at $9 per ton. The miners came from
the Panhandle road.

PE0GEES3 0P THE WORK.
The Exposition SIny 1'oiilbly Open on the
4th of September.
The Exposition building on Duquesne
way is fast assuming an "expositional" ap
pearance. Manager Johnston states that
many applicants for space that they would
like to accommodate will of necessity be re
fused on account of want of space. He
thinks the main building will be ready in
two weeks and machinery hall somewhat
later. Space is now being marked off on
the main floor of the building so that ex
hibitors may begin to arrange their wares.
Mr. Johnston doesn't exactly guarantee
that all will be in readiness to open on
September 4, as he is not certain the build
ings will be turned over to him in time.
The placing of the bonds is progressing
satisfactorily. In addition to the 1510,000
taken on Saturday $15,000 were placed with
an Allegheny bank yesterday, and the man
agers expect to place the whole amonnt at
the rate of 550,000 a week. Men of money
begin to look upon these bonds as a good
thing to have.
Superintendent Johnston has taken quar
ters in the Exposition building and the gen
eral office of the Exposition Society will be
placed in it soon.

The attendance at the meeting of colored
people, held last night at the Franklin
street scboolbouse to continue the agitation
in the Flemon extradition case, was rather
slow in gathering, but it got there all the
Broadax Smith was called on immediately
after prayer by Bev. Watson to defend his
name, objection being raised by Bev. Wat
son that such term should not be used, but
Mr. B. S. stuck to his integrity, and again
intimated that Broadax suited him as well
as D. D.
The first thing taken up was the question
of providing for the expense of some mem
bers of the committee on their visit to Har
risburg. Richard Keys thought there was
neither resolution nor precedsnt that re
quired anyone to pay his own fare, no
matter whether a minister or a gambler.
Broadax Smith didn't believe in greasing a
fat sow behind the ear, and therefore op
posed Mr. Morton's motion to connt the
cash necessary to pay fares. For himself,
Broadax reported "Dead broke."
After considerable discussion Mr. Foster
moved that all members of the committee
who bad. not secured the sinews be stricken
from the roll, but the Chair refused to recog
THE GOLDEN SHOTTEB.
There was a break in the proceedings
when Mr. John A. Martin (Milkshake) was
introduced. He called on the audience to
come up and blow in their cash, and the
dollars rolled in with a mighty jingle.
Milkshake proved himself a regular Boan
erges, a wild-eyed pulpiteer, and showed
that he had evidently missed his vocation as
a church-debt raiser. He first captured a
man named John Nolan for $30. Then
John M. Clark, of 1816 Wharton street,
Smithside, dumped in $20, James Benzie
hauen came to the scratch and dropped in
a $5 bill. Milkshake next called lor tbe
dollar fellows and the buzzard dollars rat
tled on the table like hail for a time. When
the dollar shower ceased Mr. Martin called
for the half dollar, then for the quarter dol
lar, then for the dime and finally for the
nickel-sized people, and those tumbled over
each other. When all had exhausted them
selves Martin topped the pile himself with

drew half a dollar out of him, and when
Mr. Clark dropped ?20 Broadax got his half
dollar back in advertising by announcing
that Mr. Clark was a partner in the Broadax.
A suggestion was made that Ajax Jones
be called on, and Martin applied the pump
and Ajax yielded several half dollars alter
he got the power up. Ajax's donations
were announced with cheers, which drowned
some censorious criticism on the part of
some people in the rear of the hall who in
timated that Ajax was talking more than
He was forced to yield the floor tempo

effect that he would head a file of 10, each

dropped in ones and fires thereafter, and
Mr. Smith, who has been an indefatigable
collector, announced $10 more and surren

ajax and the flora.
Ajax Jones could no louger be held, and
the Chairman called on the crowd to give
Mr. Jones room, and he made the most
flowery speech of the evening, none of bis
rhetorical flora being less than a big sun
flower. He adjured the meeting to listen to
the echoes from the graves of their ancestors,
which howled down the corridors of old
time, "Liberty, peace and freedom

risburg with the Bible in one hand and the
Gospel in the other, and bring us back good
news from Governor Beaver."
There were some people who thought Ajax
rather fervid in his remarks, but he more
than defied the lightning, and Chairman
Washington insisted that he should be

had given a good account of himself, ana
Ajax said that no one should do more than
