Collector of Internal Revenue Warm
castle is experiencing trouble in setting bis
list of appointments fixed up. He took the
list home with him last night, and made a
heroic effort to get it finally in shape, but
ira not by any means certain that it would
be completed within 43 bonrs. There are
110 appointments to make, and the claims
of nine Congressmen and 24 connties have
to be taken into consideration, for the Col
lector says frankly that he believes in home
It is understood that Sir. Warm castle
will give the present incumbents at least
two weeks' notfee, and the fact that he has
been in office two months and has not made
a single change speaks volumes for his
desire to do nothing that will impair the
efficiency of the service. It is even stated
that a longer tenure of office than two weeks
will be enjoyed by certain of the present
incumbents, whose sudden retirement might
throw matters into confusion. Mr. "Warm
castle has succeeded in securing the good
will of every Democrat now on the force.
The full list of employes in the Pittsburg
office Is as follows: Chief deputy,!!. J. Mitchell;
office deputy. Major J. L. Graham: paymaster,
W. B. McCormlck; J. M. Lindsey, bookkeeper;
J. B. Cox, bond clerk; W. B. Conway, assistant
bond clerk; J. A. McPike, stamp clerk; L. H.
Pike. Mary E. Roddy, M. W. Franks. William
Black and lizzie Keenan, clerks.
There are nineteen deputies, as follows: J.
EStillWdgon, FJrst divisioniSamuel Hawthorn,
Second division; H. E. Cook, Third division;
II. A.? Douglas, Fourth division; Jessie V.
Hoover, Fifth division; D. A. Sprang, Sixth

Their salaries range from J1.100 to
Of the entire list, as given, there happen
to be two Republicans who held office under
and during Collector Bieler's whole term,
and the positions happen to be two of the
best within the new Collector's gift. H. S.
Mitchell is Chiet Depnty at present, hold
ing the office next below the Collectorship.
Mr. Mitchell was retained by ex-Collector
Bijjler, mainly because of his great famil
iarity with the affairs of the office. This
fact, coupled with Mr. Mitchell's ebony Re-
Eublicanism, impels many to believe that
e will continue as Chief Deputy under the
new regime. The same reasons cause the
friends of Major James L. Graham to be
lieve that he, too, will continue to grace the
position of Office Deputy, although Col
lector "Warm castle has notmadc the slightest
intimation concerning his intentions in re
gard to
who escaped Collector Biglcr's sweep of the
Jacksonian office ax. Mr.Mitchell was in the
office as far back as in Collector Jackson's
time, while no one seems to remember the
time when Major Graham was not serving
"Uncle Sam.
The extent of the patronage awaiting Mr.
Warmcastle's distribution shades the neat
sum of $100,000 per annum. In addition to
the office force and deputies above enumer
ated, there are ten clerks whose salaries
range from $900 to $1,800 a year; 23 tore
kecpers who receive $4 per diem; 19 gangers
whose fees are not exceeding ?5 per diem, 30
gentlemen who combine the lunctions of
storekeepers and gaugers, nnd who, by in
verse ratio, receive from $2 to $4 per diem.

Dominic Gallagher nnd Other Added to
the Conspiracy Prisoners Ono Kotcd
Ex-Convict AUo Wanted. '
A wiry little old man was passing through
the corridor of the Court House this after
noon, when he chanced to turn his head. He
espied n special police officer at his heels.
The old man dodged into the Prothonotary's
office, hoping to escape observation; but the
officer followed him in, and the pair shortly
afterward arrived at the jail.
The arrested man was Dominic Gallagher,
once 'Squire of the Fifth ward, and the
charge against him was conspiracy, made by
Inspector Whitehouse. In a word, it was
alleged that Gallagher was one of the
Bander Detective Agency, the principal
members of which were arrested night be
fore last, for blackmailing East End speak
easies. Gallagher's friends furnished $3,000
bail, and he was released late last night.
Inspector Whitehouse is hot on tne trail
of Charles Brockert, the only man in the
gang now at liberty. Brockert has a police
record. One night, four years or thereabouts
since, Prof. J. P. Andrews, then principal
oi the Fourteenth ward school, heard a
noise among his chickens. He sallied forth
to capture the intruder, who struck him
with some heavy weapon and escaped,
leaving Prof. Andrews in an insensible
condition. The crime was fastened upon
Brockert, who was captured, tried and con
victed, and sojourned with "Warden Wright
at Riverside for a short term of years.
Alderman Hyndman committed to jail
yesterday afternoon Charles Yolke and
Philip Shambnrg. The pair were arrested
by Inspector Whitehouse at 1:30 o'clock
yesterday morning. Threes informations
had been made against both men. On those
charging selling liquor without license and
selling liquor on Sundays, bail of $1,000
was asked, and on the charge of keeping a
disorderly house, two additional, making
the total bail $2,500. in default of which
both men went to jail. They are said to be
minor members of the "Bander Detective
There are said to be more than 31 speak
easies in the East End, which are known to
have yielded to the soft blandishments of
these or similar detectives. Very little is
known in police circles ot the man Dough
erty, a member of the gang yet at large.
Six informations have been made against
It is known that a similar gang has been
operating in Lawrenceville, and that the
police are laying plans for the capture of a
much larger crowd of speak-easy "per
suaders than that now under arrest,

She Charged a Number of Men With Gam
bllna Yesterday.
Yesterday afternoon Charles Grundy was
brought before Alderman Heinrich to an
swer charges of simple assault and disorder
ly conduct preferred by Mrs. Jennie Jack
son, a colored woman. Mrs. Jackson testi
fied that on Saturday, at the head of the
Castle Shannon Incline.Grundy had threat
ened her and had sworn at her. He was
fined $1.
Quite a crowd had assembled at the hear
ing, and at its conclusion Constable Mor
gan asked Daniel Hines, John Brown and
Thomas Grundy to step into the private of
fice. When they complied with the request
they were told that they were prisoners on
a charge of gambling. Mrs. Jackson
brought the information. She asserts that
a crowd of young men gather at the black
smith shop of the Castle Shannon Railroad,
near the head of the incline, and play cards
for money. In the tunnel, which begins at
this point, they keep whiskv and beer,
which they drink and then grow noisy. The
accused at once gave bail for a hearing.
The Striking Colters Now Bunnlne Things
Their Owu Way.
The following special was received from
Connellsville after midnight last night and
too late to go in with the other report:
The outlook for tho strikers is more favora
ble now than at any other time during the pres
ent trouble. The coming out of the men at
Yonngstown the second time will influence
Hedstono and Sterling to follow. The men are
jubilant and say all of Schoonmakcr's works
will be idle to-morrow. This afternoon a mob
composed chiefly of Hungarians from works on
the ML Pleasant branch of the Baltimore and
Ohio road, went to the Paull works of W. J.
Rainty, on the west side of the Yougbiocheny
river, and drove the men from the works.
They also drove tho laborers out who were at
work on the new ovens. T. J. Mitchell, the
general superintendent, was in the engine
house at tho time. He kept the mob at bay by
a revolver. No one was hurt, nor was there
any damage done to tho wprks. The crowd
then proceeded to the Clarissa mines, and on
tho way passed the Nellie works, where the
workmen took to their heels on the approach
of the strikers. The Huns composing the mob
were drunk and wild with anger. The work
men only escaped injury by running a ay.
Loafers Unendurable nt Smltbfleld
Water Street!.
Colonel Schoonmaker, Joseph Walton &
Co., Robinson, Rea & Co., Wilson, Bailey
& Co. the Porter Locomotive Works offices,
members of the Coal Exchange, the proprie
tors of the Monongahela Hone and about
30 leading merchants have petitioned Chief
Brown to place a corner man at the corner
of Smithfield and Water streets. The peti
tioners say the loafer nuisance is unendura
ble, and that ladies are so subject to insult
that they avoid the place as they would a
pestilence, except when it is absolutely
necessary to be there.
The evil is greatly intensified since the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad station was
erected. In addition to the annoyance
caused ladies, business men complain that
ordinary transactions are hampered by
crowds, who seem to regard the locality as
the favorite one in the city for their comfort.
The Plttsbnrs; Coke Washer to bo marketed

called a "coke washer." It is a patent ar

The Dispatch some time ago. A string

Were Used as a Weapon by an Engi

Trench Workers Throw Down Their Tools
and Run for Their Lives,
As early as 7 o'clock yesterday morning
the vicinity of South Twenty-first and Syd
ney streets was the scene of great excite
ment, caused by trouble between the White
Hall Railroad Company and the Mononga
hela Katural Gas Company. The gas com
pany bad several hundred men laying a 30
inch gas main along Sydney street, and yes
terday morning they intended to lay the
pipe underneath the railroad track. But
they had evidently reckoned without their
host the engineer of engine Ko. 300 of the
White Hall Railroad.
The latter had been posted as to the time
the men were to commence digging a trench
underneath the track, and as soon as the
diggers approached the engine came snort
ing and puffing down the road. Arrived in
the middle of the street the iron horse
stopped. Then the engineer pulled open
the steam valve, and in a few seconds clouds
of seething steam came hissing across the
trenches. The men in the ditch were nearly
frightened out of their wits.
The Italians and Hungarians threw down
the picks and shovels and fled for their
lives. The engineer on 360 seemed to enjoy
the fun, and continued to blow, off volumes
of steam until his engine was literally en
veloped in a big white cloud. Then, by
way of accompamment,he blew tho engine s
By this time the entire neighborhood had
become aroused, and the place was covered
with people from all around. The men at
work in the trench came up, and in a few
moments thre were several hundred of them
surrounding the engine. In the meantime
the engineer had "let up" with his sport.
The diggers, evidently, believed the engi
neer had no more steam, and they immedi
ately jumped into the ditch again to resume
their work. However, this was apparently
what the man on the engine was waiting for,
and no sooner were the men in the trenches
again than another blast of steam came
whizzing around their ears. I
Then the contending parties began to
parley. The employes of the gas company
claimed that they had orders to lay the pipe
underneath the track, and the engineer as
serted as positively that be had orders to
prevent them from doing any such thing.
In this manner
FOUR'notrES were wasted.
Whenever the men made an attempt to
get into the ditch the engineer would re
sume operations with the steam , valve. At
last the diggers got disgusted, and, putting
their tools down, they tquatted around, on
the ground.
"We can wait!" was the expression they
hurled at the engineer, with an air of defi
ance. "And so can I!" that man replied! and. to
emphasize his remark, he blew the whistle
Thus the controversy continued until
about noon, when the engineer received an
order from the superintendent of the rail
road to cease operations. That order was
effective, but the engineer did not seem to
like it
"Hurrah! hurrah!" yelled the men in the
ditches. "We have won the day, after alll"
This was followed by the jeers and laughter
ot the people as the engine pulled away.
The contractor of the gas company had
sent a committee to wait upon the Superin
tendent of the White Hall Railroad, and
the difficulty was settled.
It was stated to a reporter last night that
the railroad company was afraid the
trenches underneath the track might dam
age the roadbed, and on that account they
raised the formidable objection.
A Meeting Last Meat to Slake the Final
The members of the Randall Club held a
meeting in the clubhouse, on Sixth avenue,
last evening, and made the final arrange
ments for their fete champetrr. to be given
at Silver Lake Grove this afternoon and
evening. From the reports received last
night the affair will surpass anything the
club has yet given. The supply of invita
tions has been exhausted, and it-was almost
impossible to get one last evening.
At 1 o'clock this afternoon the members
will assemble at the club house and march
in a body to the Union station. They will
parade over the following route: From
Sixth to Grant, to Fifth, to Libertv, to
Union station, where the cars will be
boarded for the grove. The parade will be
under the command of General P. N. Guth
rie, ex-Adjutant General of the State, and
will be headed by the Cathedral Band.
The grove at Silver Lake has been
gorgeously decorated for the occasion. The
grounds have been put into the best
possible condition and there is nothing lack
ing to make the fete the event of the season.
Gernert & Guenther's full orchestra will
discourse dance music on the large dancing
pavilion and the brass band will render
promenade and operatic selections on the
lawn. In the evening there will be a fire
works display and balloon ascensions.
Prominent visitors will be present from
surrounding towns, but there will be no
Mrs. Schulta's Bureau Robbed Br Men She
Tried to Detain.
Yesterday afternoon about 3 o'clock a
daring robbery took place at August
Schultz's house, No. 476 East street, Alle
gheny. Two men entered the house and
stole $10 from a bnrean in the front room.
The robbers missed alargeamount of money
and also a gold watch and chain, which
were in the same drawer, being frightened
by the sudden appearance of Mrs.
Schultz. The lady made an effort to bold
the men nntil the police should arrive, hut
they escaped.
She gave Officer Shooner a description of
them, and a man was arrested in the even
ing. Mrs. Schultz failed to identify him
and he was released.

That 84,000 Pamphlet Aboat Aucuntnii
la la 'Preparation All Right Assessor
Case Kxplalas.
The interview with Mr. Lambie in yester
day s Dispatch relative to the delay 'in
publishing the list of assessments has
brought out a statement from the chief
clerk, who says the work is being pushed
as rapidly as possible. When the reporter
called at the office to ascertain the cause for
the delay he was informedthat Assessors
Case, Larkin and Hoeir ' were absent.
The Dispatch correspondent in Har
risburg yesterday found Mr, Case, however,
and sends the following explanation from
Mr. Case:
Chief Assessor Frank Case Is here for the
State Convention. He had read the complaint
of a real estate dealer in to-day's Dispatch
about delay In publishing a list of the triennial
assessment in pamphlet form. In reply Mr.
Case says; "The requirements of the new city
charter and the ordinance thereunder havo
been and are being carried out to the letter.
My whole force of clerks has been bnsy on the
copy for this pamphlet. To prepare snch a
table for the printers is an enormous task.
That is why it has taken so long to finish. Hat
I have urged the work to such an extent that
tho pamphlet will be in type by the end of this
month. I think there are only eight wards that
remain to be copied by the clerks. The balance
have all been tabulated with the exception of
filling in the tax calculations on the blank.
The books and tables in the Hoard of Assessors'
office aro open to the inspection of anv citizen,
and I am only sorry that real estate owners and
Councilmen did not come and see bow the
work Is progressing before rushing into print."
There isn't any doubt that the ordinance
was passed, as Controller Morrow exhibits
it, but it'does seem strange that people in
terested did not know it. Mr. Lambie is
known as a gentleman who is not only an
attentive member of Councils who takes a
deep interest in everything done there, and
who is also financially interested, and at
noon yesterday he was still oblivious to the
fact of an ordinance having been passed to
regqlate the matter. Mr. Quinn is also a
man who pays close attention to municipal
legislation, and he, vesterday noon, at least,
had not learned of the passage of tthe ordi
nance. Controller Morrow does not appear to be
in love with the law requiring the
publication, putting his objections on
the score of exnense. He figures that
the cost of 1,000 copies will be $3,000 or
$4,000, and he states that those who argued
for publication, when the charter was being
prepared, are not those generally supposed.
A Flonr of Natural Gas Almost Suffocate
Two East End Workmen.
Last night, about 7:30, Daniel McNa
xnara and James Sheeran, two employes of
the East End Gas Company were almost
suffocated by an escape of gas. They were
making a connection in the artificial gas
mains at the corner of Center avenue and
jNevuie street, when the now of gas over
powered them. A boy who was looking on
saw how matters stood and ran for help.
The two men tried to get out of the hole,
but, overcome by the gas, fell back. Some
gentlemen living in the neighborhood then
rushed to the rescue and succeeded in pull
ing the men out, just in time to save their
lives. Dr. Diggert, of the Esst End, was
summoned, and speedily brought the men
back to their senses, after which they were
carried to their homes.

Delamater's Friends Hale Big Claims for
Him in tne Northwest,
The Republican State Convention will be
held in Harrisburg to-day, and the
straggling delegates from this section left
last evening. It is conceded by almost
everybody that Speaker Boyer will have a
walkover for the nomination of State
Treasurer and there will be no opposition to
the re-election of State Chairman Andrews.
The latter has demonstrated his ability to
handle the Republican forces with some
help, and will be his own successor.
Among the delegates who went to Har

W. Speer, County Controller Speer, Arthur
Kennedy, Mr. Smithly, Deputy Sheriff

business kept 'out of politics. It is not true
that they intend to capture the next Legis

liquor men if it Is rigidly enforced. All we
ask is to be left alone and no effort will be
made to introduce a liquor plank in the

talks naturally drilted to the coming gu

and Representative Hayes are forDelamater.
When asked if Delamater was made of the
proper stuff, Mr. Hayes replied that he
could certainly not do any worse than Bea
ver, which was not saying very much.
"After all," he continued, "the Republi
cans have had no great Governor since An

and the others were not much better. I am

On this subiect. Mr. Smllev saiMr "T

the candidates in the field at the present
time, and he will have the support of
Northwestern Pennsylvania. The chances
are that none of the men talked of now will
be taken, and some dark horse will be se
lected. It is usnally the case that a man
held up as a candidate for a longtime
before the people makes enemies and
stirs up factions. Pattison is the best man
the Democrats could nominate, but ex-Congressman
Scott, of Erie, would be the
hardest man to beat. He would go into the

What One of the Traction Companies De
posits la Hard Cash The Returns From
Thousands of Fares.
It may not be generally known that a cab
containing from $1,000 to $1,600 in cash
makes its way at noon from Penn avenue
along Sixth and Market streets to N.
Holmes & Sons' Bank each day, except
Sunday; but it is true. The money is whit
the dear publie pays in nickels and dimes to
the whfte-cacped conductors on the Citizens'
traction line.
As each car stops at the Cecil alley termi
nus the conductor goes into the offices and
does promptly in a few moments what it
takes many other persons a long time to do
settles up. The receiver notes the num
ber of the car, the amount, etc., and is ready
for another prompt paying customer. When
the day's business is over ho finds that there
is accumulated before him quite a sum, and
most of it in that cold, hard form so objec
tionable and yet so pleasing. Coppers,
nickels, dimes, quarters, halves and dollars
lie piled up before him, while there is also
a good stack of paper money.
At noon a cab is brought around, the
money piled in and is taken to the bank
named. Ou Monday two days' receipts nre
haultd off, and as Sunday is not at all a bak
day Ar the cable cars the value of the cab
load i somewhat larger than usual. As
one of the conductors said, "Business must
be picking up, for they used to carry the
money to the bank."

at present running about 20 yellow cars and

Capitalists May Engage in Business
Breeding the Pels.
The Demand for Them is Expected to Come
From Physicians
There is talk of a scheme to form a com
pany in this city for the purpose of breeding
and raising guinea pigs on an extensive
scale. The idea is to organize a stock com
pany, buy a piece of land and breed the
little animals so as to secure their tissue,
to be used in making injections into the
human system according to the Brown
Sequard discovery for renewing or stimu
lating of life.
The capital stock of the company, if
formed, is to be $25,000. They intend to
lease a piece of ground at once and begin
operations as soon as possible. Several
thousand of the pigs will, in that event,be
brought from Norway and Sweden, where
the best breeds of the world are to be found;
the farm will be stocked with them, and, as
soon as the young ones are raised, the older
ones will be marketed to physicians and
others who desire their life-stimulating tis
sues. The above Information was given a Dis
patch reporter yesterday, and it is very
probable that there is a grain of truth in it.
A gentleman who is well-known on account
of his readiness to go into any promising
scheme, approached Major Howard Morton
and asked him to take some stock in it.
The Major asked for the prospectus of the
company, and, as soon as it
is finished, he will consider
the matter. Some people, when spoken
to, thought the scheme was a joke, bnt the
gentleman who is working it thinks other
wise. At present he desires his name to be
kept out ol the matter. He has the utmost
faith in the Brown-Sequard discovery, he
says, and thinks the supply of guinea pigs
will run short within a few months. For
this reason he is agitating the idea of form
ing the company to aid them.
The guinea pigs used by the Pittsburg
physician who has been making the experi
ments cost $1 each. They are very difficult
to raise, except on a large farm, with uni
form treatment, when they thrive. They
feed on cabbage, potatoes and all kinds of
vegetables. In the city it is extremely hard
to raise them, as they are very delicate.
Considering the price and the fact of their
being as prolific as rabbits, the gentlemen
in the scheme say they see "big money
in it."

Possible Keallotment of Space, and the
Band Wrsnsle.
At tbe Exposition managers' meeting
yesterday $30,000 was voted to Mr. Mar
shall on his Power Hall contract. It was
decided that those having space allotted to
them be allowed to commence the rough
work around their stands, such as building
platforms and so on. Manager Johnston is
also anxious that all persons who have been
allotted space, and who may have changed
their minds and do not intend to use it, to
notify him, so that the space may be given
to others who are waiting.
Prof. B. Weiss, leader of the Great West
ern Band, called on Manager Johnston yes
terday in reference to the action of the Ger
man Trades Assembly, taken at their meet
ing last Sunday. The Professor reviewed
tthe trouble at the County Centennial that
resulted in tne members oi his band resign
ing from the M. M. P. TJ. He denied that
the band, as an organization, had been ex
pelled from the union, bnt said they were
all members of the Allegheny County Mu
sical Union, an organization composed of
artists in the profession.
Mr. Johnston told Prof. Weiss that the
Great Western Band had been engaged oa
its merits as musicians, and not as member
of any labor organization. As the band
holds a life membership in the Expositioa
Society, it is likely it will be retained,
