Outlawry in the Old-Time Oil Kegions
i of Pennsylvania
RECALLED BY W. IIOBEETS' DEATH.
L How His Famous Nitro-Glycerine Torpedo
& Was Duplicated
BI THE FEARLESS SCOUTS OF P1TH0LE
The death ot Dr. "W. B. Roberts at Titus
ville on Tuesday last, recalls to Pittsburg
people many interesting incidents of the oil
craze. The doctor, together with his
brother, Colonel E. A. L. Roberts, were the
inventors and patentees of the torpedo for
"shooting" and restoring oil wells, which
was of great value to producers, and from
the royalties resulting from its use the
brothers accumulated a colossal fortune.
As their patents were merely on the method
of exploding the charge and in no way
prohibited the use of nitre-glycerine, the
explosive of which the torpedoes were nade,
and as the royalty demanded for the use of
the patents were so enormous, a number of
infringers or "'moonlighters" came into the
field in opposition to the brothers, and
offered to perform the same work for one
half the amount. Many owners of wells
also purchased explosives and did their
own "shooting." Reports of these in
fringments reached the ears of the patentees
and called forth the employment of the
customary scouts or detectives, by whose
evidence they were enabled to prosecute
and in many cases secure conviction.
A FAYOBITE SUBTERFUGE.
There is scarcely an operator in the
country who has not had more or less tronble
with the inventors, and the death of the doc
tor will recall to their minds many now for
gotten controversies. Many and many were
the tricks employed to avoid the payment of
royalties, which were regulated according
to amount of glycerine used in the "shot."
A favorite subterfuge of the oil men was to
previously charge their wells with 60 or 60
pounds of the explosive purchased at one
quarter the price charged by the brothers
and then employ the Roberts to "shoot" the
well with about 20 pounds. Naturally the
explosion of a small "shot1 would discharge
the larger. Thus producers obtained the
service for one-half the usual price and
making the inventors their own infringers.
The manufacture of the explosive under
this condition of things by the "moonlight
ers" was exceedingly dangerous and onlv
the most reckless ot men cared to enter into
it. In consequence the life of the "spotter"
was not a particularly happy one, and
many weird tales of the frequent beatings
and lynching in the heart of the woods are
related by the old-timers when one can
catch them in the proper mood.
HOW IT WAS DONE.
The method of "shooting" the well is by
lowering cans about eight feet long and
abont three inches in diameter, containing
20 pounds of glycerine, and exploding the
same by striking with an iron weight. In
many parts of the oil country this is impos
sible, as the ground is of a sandy nature,
and a caving in would follow the "shot"
and render the well useless, lu order to con
vey the explosive to the wells the Roberts
had a wagon constructed with delicately tem
pered springs, and packing frames, by which
the danger of premature explosion was
greatly reduced, while the "moonlighter ''
carried the material in buck-boards or
bnggies, and frequent fatalities were the re
sult. A prominent member of the Oil Ex
change, whose gray hair is strangely at
variance with his youthful face, once bad a
peculiar experience while "moonlighting."
With a companion he was transporting a
nuantitv of rivcerine across the hills to a I
wCllTn0rfrlifl-t5r!5brfirfirfrrHtTe-uKKic&:'The Flyer," the fastest trairr
1 j . j .!- .-'t. J .L I
board. A sudden noise frightened the
horse, which at once started on a dead run
straight for a ravine, over which he
PLTJNGED HEAD FIRST,
carrying the wagon and its occupants with
them. As they struck the bottom of the
ravine the friends seized each other's arms,
expecting to be blown to pieces every mo
ment, but, strange to say, no explosion oc
curred, although the wagon contained over
150 pounds ot glycerine, but when the opera
tor reached home his hair was nearly white
from the effect of the shock. One of the
most dare devil "moonlighters" that ever
"shot" a well was Dick Thompson, or
better known as "Black Dick,"
from his hair and beard. He
was a man who, his friends claim,
"feared neither man nor devil." Once while
driving through Bradford, Captain Tom
Murphy, who had received notice from a
spotter that the carriage contained contra
band explosive, attempted to arrest him,
Dick grabbed a 20-pound can and with an
oath swore that he would give the officer
exactly 30 seconds to escape before he threw
the can among them. As he was known by
reputation too well to doubt his word he
had no occasion to waste the explosive.

X Washington County Benedict Wants to
Repent the Dose In AUecIienv
Marriage License Clerk Heiber was some
what puzzled by an application for a license
to marry yesterday afternoon. A young
nan approached him with a request for a li
cense and Imparted the information that he
(the young man) had been married recently
in Washington county, but that friends
were skeptical of the marriage and he
"wanted to have an Allegheny county knot
tied so as to make things more binding.
Captain Heiber said he could not grant a
license in such a case unless a divorce was
The aspirant for a second dose of matri
mony then went to Attorney Brennan, who
shortly thereafter tried to conyince Register
Connor that it was all right to issue a sec
ond license. The official, however, pre
ferred not to act unless the county courts
settle the method of procedure. The point
was whether a man married in one county
could take out a license for another mar
riage to the same party in a different county.
Mr. Brennan said subsequently that he did
not think the issuance of a second license,
in such a case, a violation ot law, and that
he might ask Orphans' Court for a rule on
the points involved.
DEPEEDATIOXS AT DUQUESNES
The Firebugs Agnln Ensay Their Lawless
Operation nnd Escape.
The quiet town of Duquesne was again
excited by the firebugs yesterday morning.
The house of Elizabeth Smith, on Railroad
street, was set on fire. The bucket brigade,
after assiduous work, saved the property.
John Riddon, watchman of Allegheny
Bessemer Steel Works, discovered the
fire about 4 o'clock. Seeing two
men run from the rear of
the bnilding. toward German town, he pulled
cut his revolver and shot at them, but with
out effect. The firebnsrs procured a quantity
of carbon oil, soaked the woodwork and
then set the builuing on fire. Mrs. Smith's
offense was that she refused to turn out some
of the men working at the steel works.
Other minor depredations have also been
committed in and abont the neighborhood,
and the end Is not yet.

The Extension of a Street Railway Coder
Rights of way through Beltzhoover
borough streets will probably Insure a lively
meeting of the borough Council next Mon
day evening. The Mt, Oliver Incline Plane
Street Railway Company haye presented a
petition asking the borough Councils to
grant them permission to lay tracks in the
borough streets. The street railway already
extends along Washington avenue to the
edge of the Beltzhoover borough line, and
desires to continue its tracks within the
The petition asks the permission of Coun
cils to lay tracks along Beltzhoover avenue
to the southern end of the borough, thence
down Third street to the borough line, thence
to Myrtle avenue, to Seventh street and
along Seventh street to Beltzhoover avenue
again. Burgess James Barr had drawn up
an ordinance covering the case. As it now
stands the railway company agree to pave
the streets they occupy between their tracks,
the borough reserves the right to grant per
mission to other railway companies to cross
the Ml. Oliver company's tracks, and the
railway must be completed and in operation
within one year from the date on which the
ordinance is passed. The railway company,
it is said, desire to commence to lay its
tracks immediately, and will try to have it
in operation by fall if they get the right of
The people of Beltzhoover are very anxious
to have tlje street cars run through the
borough, but the Council are said to be de
termined to let the company have things as
little their own way as possible. Some ot
the members of Council are said to be kick
ing alretdy, and the ordinance will probably
be modified considerably.

old track between these points have been
obviated by the new arrangement, which is
understood to be the precursor of other im

FULLY 600 HOUSES
On Which Building Operations Will
bo Suddenly Stopped Monday,
UNLESS LATHERS ARE DISCHARGED
The Eerious Delay That Would Follow a
Strike of Plasterers,
AS SHOWN 1 BUILDING 1NSPECT0KS
At a meeting of the Pittsburg and Alle
gheny Plasterers' Union last night, the
lathing question was disenssed and members
were reminded that the time limit given
contractors, beyond which the plasterers
would not cover lathers' work, will expire
on the next Monday. The plasterers are
determined in their resolution not to cover
lathers' work after the appointed date. A
leading member of the union working on
the third floor of the Monongahela House
building yesterday said: "It's all nonsence
about a strike coming off to-morrow. Ko
such thing was even proposed. But if the
contractors don't grant our demands abont
incorporating the lathiug and plastering
business by next Monday, then you'll see a
real good plasterers' strike. The contract
ors were notified on January 1, and we gave
them until the first Monday in August to
think about it. Our wages are good enough,
and we want no increase at present."
James Cullom, a lather, stated to a Dis
patch reporter yesterday: "The Lathers'
Union has authorized me to say that the
plasterers have been causing the publica
tion of several incorrect statements. They
say that boys are generally put to lathing,
which is not so, because there are many
lathers among the 250 in this city, who have
been working at their trade tor over 25
vcars. I am one of them myself. The ob
jections of the plasterers are unfair and un
just. 600 HOUSES INVOLVED.
"It would take two plasterers to do the
work for one lather," said Mr. Cullom,
"and a skilled plasterer will always be one
quarter behind the lather. The carpenters
are for us, but the laborers are not, because
they don't want trades consolidated. The
paperhanger might as well object to the
calcimincr. Selfishness is at the bottom of
the entire trouble nothing else."
In May the Building Inspector of Pitts
burg issued permits for 351 houses, which
required the work of plasterers. In June
241) permits were issued. The report for
July is not ready but will reach consider
ably over 300. The total number of permits
issued to date is something over 900. It is
estimated that one-half this number, at
least, is a good estimate of the number of
buildings in the course of construction in
Allegheny. The Bnilding Inspector's
clerk said yesterday that it was a very poor
building that was completed in 60 days.
and estimated that fully two-thirds of the
number of buildings for which permits had
been secured since June were not yet com
pleted. A good share of them would be
just about ready for the plasterer at this
GENERAL DELAY WIXIi FOLLOW.
Prom these facts some idea can be gained
of the delay and damage to building opera
tions which a strike of plasterers and lath
ers would cause. July is generally the
busiest month in the year when all building
operations are at their height,and it seems a
more favorable time for the men and un
favorable for the contractors could not have
The estimated cost of the buildings for
which permits were issued in May and June
is $1,257,094 and the July permits will in
crease the sum more than one-third.

AN TOPK0T0KED ASSAULT.
A Gang of Hoodlums Attack an Allegheny
Fedeatrlau With Missies.
On Tuesday night about 11:30 as Lee Don
nelly was passing up Bebecca street, Alle
gheny, he met eight young fellows talking
and laughing, each armed with a stone. As
he came abreast of the party one of them
threw a stone and hit him on the shoulder.
He turned quickly around, and instantly
one of the party rushed at him with an open
knife, and stabbed him behind the
ear. The blow inflicted a severe
wound, and was followed by another
stroke, which cut Donnelly's clothes at the
shoulder. Another stab was made at Don
nelly's knee, but only the skin was pierced.
Tne crowd by this time had gathered
around, so Donnelly took to his heels and
made for the residence of his brother, Hart
Donnelly, a detective, whom he wakened
up. The two men then sallied forth and
chased the hoodlums up Bebecca street into
South avenue. Here they overtook them
and succeeded in capturing the one who bad
committed the outrage. He commenced to
shont loudly, and Officer Cnmmins arrived
on the scene. Hearing the facts or the case,
the officer arrested the young ruffian, who
gave the name of Evans, and locked him
