;THE ., P1TTSBUBG DISPATCH, "WEDNESDAY, JULY 81, 1889.
IT IS BAD AT BEST.
Snch is the Opinion of 'Squire Porter
on a Baby farm Case.
WATER AND SKIMMED MILK
The Main Sustenance of Children Sent Oat
fcy an Aid Society.
THE MAIN ALLEGATIONS Iff ETIDESCE
If only a small proportion of all that was
yesterday sworn to is true, in the baby farm
ing case of Mrs. Quillan and daughter, of
Mansfield, the Anti-Cruelty Society trill
feel justified in its prosecution of the de
fendants. The hearing before Alderman
Porter found Attorney Sullivan ready for
the prosecution, and O. K. Cook, Esq., for
From what was developed in evidence
Alderman Porter was led to say to a reporter
at the close of the hearing: "The manner
of putting out babies adopted by the Chil
dren's Aid Society is very loose. After the
babies are put out the agents of the society
allow them to be transferred to other par
ties, without making any special inquiries."
Among the prosecuting witnesses Super
intendent Bean, of the Anti-Cruelty Soci
ety, testified to seeing some thin, pale, sore
children fed only on bread, water and
skimmed milk at Mrs. Quillan's, and to
taking one child weighing 4 pounds from
her place, and in three weeks getting its
weight up to 18 pounds by only
ordinarily proper treatment at the
hands of Mrs. Adams, whotcorroborated the
statement, adding that Mrs. Quillan had
given the child laudanum, paregoric, etc.,
to keep it from dying. The child was re
stored on a simple diet of a quart of pure
milk and enough bread daily. Mrs. Mont
gomery, who was with Mrs. Quillan two
years, corroborated all this, and said the de
fendant neglected and abused the babies.
ON THE OTHER SIDE.
For the. defense Dr. E. M. Walker, of the
Allegheny County Home, testified that his
impressions of the manner in which Mrs.
Quillan cared for the children had been
good, though he didn't know how the little
ones were fed. Mrs. Quillan herself said:
I have been a nurse ever since I was 12 years
of age, and I am now -39, and besides this I have
raised a family of my own. In 186 I received
two children from the Children's Aid Society,
and since that time I have received IS. The
babies were well cared for and well fed. One
of the babies might have been galled; but this
was common to children.
Mrs. Metier, Sr., also testified to the good
treatment of the children, stating that they
were in a healthy condition and that the
house was clean. Mrs. Seebick, who kept
a farm at Fast Mansfield, swore that she
sold milk to Mrs. Metier; she usually took
a half pint in the morning and the same
quantity in the evening; but witness in
variably gave a pint each time, though only
paid for half a runt. Attorney Sullivan re
marked to her that it would be an advisable
thing for her to open a dairy at Shadyside.
If she aid business in that way he could as
sure htr of a large trade. The witness went
on to state that the babies were nice, clean
and fat, she had excellent opportunity of
knowing because of her frequent visits. She
could not give any certain testimony as to
bow manv babies there were, bnt thought
half a pint in the morning and the same in
the evening sufficient food for one.
Mrs. Quillan corroborated the last witness
as to the condition of the house, and those
in her charge. She said that the children
were kept in as good a condition as she
would keep her own.
Mrs. Ella Fvans said she frequently went
to Mrs. Quillan's. She saw the babies last
May. They looked happy and had the ap
pearance of being splendidly provided for.
Samuel O'Brienagent for the Humane
Society, said his society sent him out to in
vestigate into the Qmllan case, and, from
what he saw there, the house was clean and
in good condition, and the boys looked
A DREADFULLY EMACIATED ONE.
Mrs. Lowe spoke of knowing Mrs. Adams,
who has now the possession of the children,
and said that when one of the babies was
brought to Mrs. Adams it was dreadfully
emaciated and warped; that it bore unmis
takable evidences of starvation; that the
lower part of its body was full of small sore
holes, sufficiently large to insert the end of
the little finger. She said Mrs. Metier, who
received the children from Mrs. Quillan,
and from whom Mrs. Adams obtained tbem,
never nursed the babies and displayed a
very callous manner toward them. She at
tributed the sores to washing their napkins.
When Mrs. Lowe and Mrs. Adams visited
Mrs. Metier the baby belonging to Mrs.
Metier tried to snatch the cracker out of
Mrs. Lowe's baby's hand, and that bore evi
dence of hunger.
Mrs. "Webster, whose baby was in Mrs.
Metier' home, spoke also of the cruelty the
children received, saying that when Mrs.
Adams received them one of them weighed
i pounds and 2 ounces. Attorney Sullivan
asked the witness how long the child was
in the possession of Mrs. Adams before it
showed signs of improvement. She said in
about two weeks an improvement could be
seen, and after it had been in her care for
nine weeks the child weighed 16 pounds.
Alderman Porter suggested that the case
be adjourned, and upon the lawyers agree
ing, their arguments will be presented on
Friday at 10 o'clock.

The Bondhoose Sold The Naked Ground
Would Have Brought the Same Price
Leases Where Buildings Are Sometimes
The well known property the Boadhouse
and grounds of the late Tony Newell cor
ner of Forbes and Shady lane was sold yes
terday by "William A. Herron & Sons., Col
onel Herron being the administrator of the
estate of Martha Newell deceased. The
purchaser was H. A. Miller, Esq., and the
price $33,000. The property had been offered
a week previous and withdrawn on a bid of
The desire of the purchaser could not be
learned. John Kelly stated that he sup
posed the property would be utilized, but
in what way he knew not and Mr. Miller
could not be found. As he isn't in the
hotel line, it is supposed he was acting for
Though the house is a well appointed
one for the purpose intended by Newell, it
is thought the ground would have brought
as much money without the bnilding as
with it. The location is fine but not many
people want to keep hotel, and unless pec-
Ele find a building to suit them all ready to
and, they seldom care to buy, but had
rather build themselves.
A notable case was that of the late Cap
tain Dick Gray. He owned a piece of high
ground in Allegheny, covered with good
buildings, that a generation since were
fashionable in style. Mr. Gray wanted to
sell, bnt couldn't get his price, and he
couldn't get tenants to suit him. Finally
he had the houses torn down and hauled
away and the ground graded into a beauti
ful lawn. The alteration attratted the at
tention of the people of means to the ground
and they bought it at a price considerably
higher than had been asked tor both grounds

Sixteenth street, yesterday noon, Frederick
Loihinger, of 1GS South Seventeenth street,
was seriously burned on the .arms, face,
chest and back by an explosion. The natu
ral gas in the foundry furnace had not been
entirely turned off at the noon hour, as he
supposed; so, shortly before 1. when be in
troduced a lighted paper, preparatory to
turning on the gas, the explosion blew out
the furnace front and threw him ten feet,
with the result indicated.

THE! MUST BORBOW.
At Least Members of Some Bnilding
and Loan Associations Must.
RULES OP OTHERS ARE DIFFERENT.
A Clear Explanation of an. Important
THE LAW ON THE SUBJECT OP LOANS
A gentleman of Phillipsburg, Clearfield
county, writes to The Dispatch, inclosing
advertisements of building and loan associa
tions in Altoona, offering loans by them to
the public to bidders who can give approved
security. The writer complains that he
holds stock in an association in this city,
and every month receives notice that if he
does not borrow the association will borrow
for him and charge interest He asks:
"Would it not be more consistent for this
association to take this postage money and
advertise the loan in the daily papers? They
say 'too much money; no one wants it,' and
yet will not advertise." One association,
the gentleman states, frightened several
poor women out by such threats. He wants
to know if it can compel .them to withdraw,
it claiming that it can. The correspondent
states that many poor people are thus im
posed upon, and some are frightened out
He also states that some of the aggrieved
have sought legal advice and asks if they
can be compelled to borrow, and if not can
they be made to pay interest
two ways of doing it.
Now all this depends. To satisfy the in
quirer it is well to state that the explana
tion following is given by two lawyers.
Premium bnilding and loan associations
sell loans to the highest bidders, and in con
sequence frequently advertise the offers in
order to make money by increasing compe
tition. In some mutual associations no loans
are made to outsiders unless there are no
applicants among the members, and then in
some of them the loan under their laws and
regulations must be made through a trustee.
There are two ways of issuing -stock. One
is to sell all the stock authorized by the
charter, or as much of it as can be disposed
of, at or shortly after organization, and then
run the business until the dues paid and
the profits earned will, together, equal the
par value of the stock as fixed by charter
and bylaws, and then the association winds
up or dissolves. This is called the terminat
ing plan. Some object to this plan, because
the length of time such an association will
have a demand for loans depends on the
number of stockholders who have become
members for the purpose of borrowing.
WHY THEY SHRIVEL.
In all associations some persons take stock
merely as an investment for the purpose of
getting the par value or the stock in cash
when it matures. If there are many of
these, the demand for loans will cease long
before the stock matures. Many associa
tions are unable to loan their funds for two,
three or four years before the stock has be
come par. And during all this time the
money accumulates in the hands of the
treasurer and brings no interest, and hence
requires a longer time to bring the stock up
to its full par value than it would if all the
funds were continuously employed earning
Such associations usually shrivel by reason
of withdrawals to less than half the amount
of stock with which they start
Tbe other way of issuing stock is in
series. Only a portion of the shares author
ized by the charter is issued at the time of
commencing business, and tbe remainder is
issued at intervals thereafter until all the
stock is sold. The payment of dues on each
series begins with the date of issue, thus
making each series a new or separate asso
ciation, and the profits are divided between
the different series in proportion to the
amount of money paid in on each share of
each series, and the length of time it has
been employed in earning profits. This is
known as the serial plan, and gives, prob
ably, better general satisfaction than any
other, where the object sought is mutual
The above is sufficient to give a clear
understanding of tbe subject Now, sup
pose an association is organized on the
mutual benefit plan, and there is no pro
vision for starting a fresh series irom time
to time, so as to relieve congestion when
borrowers are supplied, what remains to be
done with accumulated funds?
THE LIFE OF THE ORGANIZATION
may be so near its close that mortgages
cannot be taken for a period that will suit
borrowers, and tbe association must be
wound up to give satisfaction. The dues
may either be paid in or the money allowed
to lie fallow in the treasury. It is of no use
to advertise loans, for the members of the
association who want them know they can
get them, either on mortgage or on stock
note. As Mr. C. Boehmer, Secretary of the
Prospect Building and Loan Association,
says, it is manifestly safer to make each
non-borrowing stockholder take a pro rata
proportion of his money back again than to
allow it to lie unproductive in the associa
tion treasury. For want of employment it
will make no interest there, though it be
ever so honestly guarded, and by forcing a
member to take his money back he can
make some other investment, dispose of his
money in any way he chooses; all suffer
equally. There is no longer a home market
for their money.
The only remedy seems to be the estab
lishment of afresh series, or to run tbe as
sociation on the premium plan, and the lat
ter has not proven popular in practice
among poor people.

I Grcatlj Exemplified by tbe Demand of
Machines In Foreign Lands.
The stockholders of the Westinghouse
Machine Company held their annual meet
ing yesterday afternoon. The old Board
of Directors was re-elected as follows: Q.
Westinghouse, Jr., President, Balph Baga
ley, Vice President, I. E. Jackson, Secre
tary, H. H. Westinghouse, Assistant Secre
tary, John Caldwell, Treasurer.
Immediately after this meeting the new
board came together and they declared a J
per cent cash dividend on both preferred
and common stock, payable on August 20,
to stockholders on record for this date.
When the meeting had 'adjourned Mr.
Balph Bagaley in a conversation with a
reporter stated that the company's business
during the last year had been remarkably
prosperous. "We are now making great
addition to our plant," he said, "by way of
increasing our machinery. We are .not only
doing a large business in this country, but
we have agencies in foreign lands and 10 per
cent of our engines are sent abroad. Among
the largest foreign orders filled lately were
16 engines for a London electric light com
pany. Our engines are also put up in the
Tarjuella, the largest theater in Spain. A
unique way of application of one of our en
gines is in Northwestern Mexico, where
the wonderful Bowers dredge boat moves
from 5,000 to 7,000 cubic yards of earth by
means of a centrifugal pump during one

Mrs. Henrietta Schreiner, widow of John
F. Schreiner, of Moon township, the woman
who with G. W. Scott was censured by the
Coroner's jury, for alleged cruel and in
human treatment of the deceased," denies
Schreiner's charges generally and particu
larly and asserts terrible abuse on his Dart
She says Schreiner not only failed to sup
port her, but beat her in a fiendish manner,
leaving ineffaceable scars; beat her with a
piece of iron, with a club and with a shoo
at various times, and would not allow her
to make her own living in peace.
As to Scott, she denies any undue rela
tions with him, and says that Scott was
hired by her and her husband. Scott corro
borates Mrs. Schreiner's story.
The case is very much mixed, and the
only thing definitely established seems to be
that the couple had led a very miserable life
for the last 25 years. .. -
BUTCHE IS DIING.
A Second Death Probable From That
Italian Blot's Results.
A late telegram received yesterday by
Noran & Carmack, of this city, who are tbe
contractors laying the Bellevernou natural
gas pipe line, reported George Butche dying
at Monongahela City. His deposition was
taken by the magistrate at 3 P. M. Butche
is the Italian who killed his workmate in
Monday's riot Coronsr Kennedy, at Mo
nongahela City, held an inquest on the body
of Giovani, the man shot by Butche. The
Coroner held Butche for murder.
The article in yesterdav's Dispatch
should have said the two ringleaders were
rival foremen instead of rival contractors.
Nor is it true the Italians are driving new
workmen away. They welcome them in
stead. TEE INQUEST CONTINUED.
Coroner McDowell Investlsrating the Death
of Mrs. Martin.
Coroner McDowell continued the inquest
yesterday on the remains of Mrs. Anna
Martin, who died at the Allegheny City
Farm Sunday morning. The Inquest goes
on again this morning. Testimony yester
day developed that Mrs. Martin had been
pushed down the stairway by her daughter-in-law
and had injured her ankle.
Mr. Orr Asserts Ills Innocence.
James L. Orr, the real estate agent, de
nounces May Kelley's charges as wholly
false. He says the location of his private
office is such that a criminal assault could
not possibly have been perpetrated there,
because tbe screams which MissKelley says
she uttered would have been heard upstairs
iu lawyers' offices, and actions would have
been seen through tbe uncurtained window
by a colored family living across the alley.
Mr. Orr says he will vindicate himself at
the proper time. He asserts the girl had
wanted to leave his employ, and, because
her mother insisted upon her staying, re
sorted to a falsehood of this character to get
out of working.

Tn tbe Qnlet Season How It is Secured.
The bustle and stir pervading every de
partment of tbe immense stores of Messrs.
Boggs& Buhl induced an inquiry from
your representative yesterday as to the rea
son of such activity in the last week in July
a time whenjdullnessrgenerally reigns in
most branches of business. In response to
the question a member of the firm said that
it was their policy to maintain the interest
of buyers during dull seasons by offering
extraordinarily low prices in the most desi
rable lines of goods, and thoroughly adver
tising the bargains through the medium of
the daily papers. By this means quick
Bales are eflected. and "the counters cleared
of goods before the fall stock is brought for
ward. A tour of the stores was made in com
pany with a chief of department,
and the display of beautiful fab
rics at half (or less) regular prices
impressed even the usually indifferent news
paper man, and a sight of the bargains of
fered would have rejoiced any woman's eyes
and not have greatly reduced even a mod
erately filled pocketbook. For instance,
there are hundreds of pieces of French nov
elties for dresses. All wool, 42 to 46 inches
wide, for 60c a yard. All this season's pat
terns, and really imported materials, too.
Early in the season the prices were $1 to
$1 75 a yard. A profusion of beautiful
beiges were shown at 60c a yard (formerly
$1); heaps of challis, Indias, surahs and
other silks at very low prices, and a number
of pieces of Anderson's ginghams at ab
surdly low rates. In buttons there are
dozens of novelties; in belts all the new
things- alligator and seal belts, with oxi
dized silver bnckles, for $1 dainty chate
laines, hand satchels and traveling bags,
and leather goods innumerable. The firm
takes pride in alwayr being able to show
unique designs iu all" the lines of ladies'
wear. The writer was shown such quanti
ties of bona fide bargains in dress goods, in
cluding silks, woolens, wash goods of all
kinds, laces, trimmings, linens, underwear,
furnishings, hosiery and notions, and even a
beautiful selection of standard novels, cloth
bound, at 25c each, that space and memory
fail to recount all. Truly a great drygoods
business is a wonderful thing.
