THE MAYOR'S YETO N. G.
Only Three Votes in Either Branch
in Support of It.
TEXT OP THE VETO MESSAGE.
The Late Chief Crow's Assistant Chosen to
BOTH HEETIKGS MOST KOTEWORTHI
Last night was Council night in Alle
gheny, and, in anticipation of several im
portant measures coming up, notably the
Mayor's threatened veto of the asphaltum
block paving ordinance and the election of
a Fire Chief, the chambers of both branches
were crowded with spectators.
In Select Council, after the usual pre
liminaries, Mr. A. Kennedy presented a
communication from Mr. Oliver P. Scaife
setting forth that, as a citizen of Allegheny,
he had the good of tbe city at heart, anil,
such being the case, he desired to call the
attention of Councils to an excellent oppor
tunity. The Watson estate, he said, con
taining from 300 to 400 acres of land, lying
on both sides of the Perrysville road, was
for sale, and -was very desirable for park
purposes. He extolled it highly, adding
that a small part of it could be laid out in
building lots, which, when the surrounding
ground had been improved, would bring
nearly enough to defray the whole expense.
The communication was referred.
Mr. Xiowe presented an ordinance grant
ing the Meridian Electric Lighting Com
pany the right to erect poles, etc, for the
purpose of commercial lighting. It was
THE MAYOR SAYS 20.
The veto of Mayor Pearson of the ordi
nance authorizing the paving of a portion
of Federal street, was next taken up and
read by President Lindsay. The veto
message was as follows:
ALLEGHENY City, August 8, 1S89. J
To the Honorable, the Select and Common Coun
cils of the city of Allegheny:
Gentlemen I herewith respectfully re
turn to your honorable bodies with my dis
approval. Ordinance No. 22, of Select Council
file, entitled: "An ordinance authorizing the
Committee on Streets and Sewers to enter into
a contract with tbe Philadelphia Asphalt
Paving Company, to pave Federal street, from
Ohio to South Diamondstreets,with asphaltum
block, on conditions named."
My reasons tor this action are as follows:
It may be that asphaltum block is a suitable
pavement on retired streets, where there is only
light travel, but 1 seriously doubt the propriety
of its adoption in a city like our own where
there is such constant heavy hauling upon our
main thoroughfares. This travel is rapidly in
creasing with the development ot onr manu
facturing and mercantile interests. I have re
ceived letters from prominent business men
sustaining my position in this matter. Our
streets have been for a long time in a deplora
ble condition, and I hope Councils will not let
the matter rest until a permanent Improvement
The object of this proposed improvement is
to test tbe durability of asphaltum block as a
material for street pavement. I do not think
this object cam be attained by the plan pro
posed by this ordinance, as it is not Intended
to pave the entire square from Ohio to South
Diamond streets, bnt only tbe spaces between
the curbs and tbe street car tracks. Tbe rest
of the street between the tracks, which bears
tbe real wear and tear of travel is to be paved
with cobble and lielcian block. This, to my
mind, is a confession that asphaltum block has
not sufficient strength or durability to stand
the test of heavy hauling common to our busi
Iso one more appreciates tbe necessity of
pure water, a more perfect system of sewerage
and good streets than myself, but I cannot ap
prove of this plan for improving a portion of
Federal street. J, therefore, return this ordi
nance to your honorable bodies with my veto.
R. T. Pe arson. Mayor.
THE YETO OVERRIDDEN.
After the reading of the message Mr.
Henricks moved for the passage of the ordi
nance over the Mayor's veto. There was
no dissension. The ordinance was passed
by a vote of 19 ayes to 3 noes. The vote was
Ayes Messrs. Emrick. Gilliford. C. IL Hart
man, Henricks, A. Kennedy. William Ken
nedy, Lanugo. Langhurst, Lowe, Mueulbron
ner, McAfee, Ober. Kotubln, Schad, Snatnan,
fcoeer, Walther, Wertheimer and President
Noes Messrs. Cochrane, Einstein and Har
man. The ordinance relative to the compensa
tion of tbe Collector of Delinquent Taxes
was passed. It allows the Collector $1,500
per year salary in addition to the five per
cent penalty on delinquent taxes, the act of
1887 providing for a penalty of ten per cent
having been declared unconstitutional.
Councils at this point went into joint ses
sion. THE WATER PROBLEM.
Mr. Brown submitted the report of the
Water Committee relative to obtaining a
supply of pure water for Allegheny. The
report set forth that the committee has
had the matter under consideration for some
time, and that the Superintendent of
"Water "Works and City Engineer had pre-
Sared plans for water works at the head of
Tine-Mile Island, above the point of con
tamination. A resolution was recommend
ed providing that the plan known as the
first plan submitted by the Committee on
"Water, for extending the large delivery
main to the head of Nine-Mile Island, ana
the erection of machinery, etc., at an esti
mated cost of $1,200,000 be adopted.
A TLEA FOR CONSIDERATION.
Dr. Gilliford moved to refer the resolu
tion to the "Water Committee. He said that
papers coming into Councils in such a way
should receive some consideration before
Mr. Lowe thought that the resolution was
simply a plan to get bids for filtering sys
tems which were not in favor.
Mr. Cochrane said that it was folly to ad
vertise in such an open manner. The Water
Committee had been considering the matter
for three years, and was familiar with what
was needed. He moved to non-concur and
refer tbe resolution to the "Water Committee.
His motion was carried without opposition.
Mr. Snaman presented the report of the
Johnstown Belief Committee. It showed
that 106 men and a medical reliet corps had
been sent to Johnstown. A quantity of
supplies had also been purchased. The
total expenses were $2,240 71. The Con
troller was authorized to issue warrants lor
tbe payment of the bills.
That Dody Likewise Goes Through the
Motion of Overriding.
In Common Council Mr. Stayton offered
the following resolutions, which were re
ferred to the Health Committee:
Resolved, That the Board of Health be au
thorized to institute a thorough examination as
to tbe purity ot the water in tbe park wells and
such springs as may be suspected of impurity
and to close up any wells or springs found to be
Resolved, That the Board of Health be au
thorized to thoroughly Investigate the condi
tion of the dairies in tbe city limits and make
ah analysis of any suspected milk furnished to
Mr. Swindell, Chairman of the Fire Com
mittee, presented the report ot that Com-
mittee. The report contained a recom
mendation that the election for Chief En
gineer of the Department be postponed un
til next April, when the regular elections
take place, and an affirmative recommends
tion of the resolution authorizing the Chair
man of the Fire Committee to purchase a
Silsby engine for the sum of $4,500.
Chairman Hunter, at this point, said he
wanted to correct an error that had been
made by the publication of a statement to
the effect that he attended the meeting of
the Fire Committee at which the contract
was let for the engine. He said he was 60
miles away from the city at that time.
The vote was then taken on the resolu
tion, which resulted in its adoption by a
vote of 27 to 14. The following is the vote:
Ayes Messrs. Cruikshank, Graham, Groet
zmger, llax. Kaiser, Lappe, Millard, McAuley,
McDonald, McGeary. Keeb. Ober, Fappert,

The action of Select Council in adopting
the report of the Finance Committee and the
report of the Controller was concurred in,
and Common Council adjourned.
A joint session of Councils was held for
the purpose of electing a successor to the
late Chief James E. Crow, ot the fire de
partment. Chairman Hunter, of Common
Council, presided. "When the nomination
was declared open Mr. Cochrane, of Select
Council, presented the name of Bobert

Therebeing no other nominees tbe election
of Mr. Jones was made unanimous by ac

A TEDCE FOR A DAY.
The Millvnte Traction Company Hindered In
Crossing the West Peon Railroad A
The Millvale and Bloomficld Traction
Company employes started about 7 o'clock
a. 31. yesterday to dig up the cobble stones
on Bridge street at Bennett station on the
West Penn Bailroad, and excavate pre
paratory to laying their lines across the
railroad. There was a considerable ditch
dug before 9 o'clock, though the traction
company hid not yet encroached upon the
railroad's ground. About this time the
section foreman came along, and, seeing the
traction company's men at work, imme
diately telegraphed to Freeport for a body
of men to come to Bennett to prevent the
traction company from proceeding -with
their work. A force of 100 men came on
tha scene. The foreman jnmped into tbe
ditch, and bade his men follow; but, before
they had time to get down, P. W. Seibert,
President of the traction company, had fol
lowed the foreman, and, without much
ceremony, got him by the collar and back,
and pitched him to the road again. Immed
iately the railroad men, mostly Hungarians
and Italians, raised their picks, crowbars
and shovels and made a break for tbe street
carmen. While the melee had all the
aspect of a riot, Mr. Seibert went before
Burgess Brewer Scott aud appealed to him,
to have the row stopped. It was, he said,
impossible for him (Seibert) to combat the
railroad men with such a disparity of num
bers. Mr. Scott and Constable Walker
ultimately quieted the men.
About 10 o'clock Division Superintendent
Miller came upon the scene and held a con
sultation with President Seibert, which re
sulted in a cessation of work until Mr. Mil
ler could confer with their attorneys, Messrs.
Hampton & Dalzell. At 11 o'clock a tele
gram reached Mr. Seibert, asking him to re
main quiet a day, which he agreed to do,
putting his men to splitting rails to go
across the railroad at Bennett. There is
a rumor that a conference will be held be
tween United States District Attorney
Lyon, legal advisor for the traction com
pany, ana Hampton & Dalzell to-dav. It
is said the railroad anthorities concede the
right of the traction company to pass over
their lines; but the difficulty seems to be in
laying the traction company's peculiar lines.
Tne Pittsburg and Western authorities
want to lay the street car rails and charge
them for it. They do not want any incon
venience or delav on their road.

. A conference between the officers of the
American Flint Glass Workers' Association
and the manufacturers of iron mold ware
was held yesterday in the rooms of the glass
association to settle the scale for the next
fire. The iron-mold list, which takes in
every piece of glassware blown in an iron
mold, was carefully gone over, and few
changes were made. Thirteen items, which
had been agreed to at a previous conference,
were considered, and the meeting ndjourntd.

A brief notice of this camp
once the most important in
Western Pennsylvania may not be out of

shaded the neighborhood. In the meeting
of 1855, Bev. I. L Swaze was presiding
elder, and Bev. E. B. Griffin officiated as
preacher in charge. It is a "very remarka
ble fact that this same Bev. E. B. Griffin
should have been borne to his last rest at
Canton, O., on yesterday, the thirty-fourth
anniversary of the meeting. x
William Magill, then Sheriff of Alle
gheny county, was President la the first
year of the purchase.
Camp meetiug continued happily and
continuously for 20 years after the first pur
chase. During that time Colo'nel Yuger
and many other prominent people built
handsome cottages in the camp. In 1876,

however, an event occurred, which very
nearly destroyed the camp forever. A ter
rible fire broke out, during the hot summer
of that year, and not only every cottage in
camp, but the very trees themselves, were
BOKNT TO THE GKOUND.
No meeting was held that year, and there
resulted a slight split among the old camp
ers. Some chose to rebuild their cottages
and renovate the old place; others preferred
to migrate to Valley Camp. Thus, it will be
seen that Tarentum is the parent of the
great gathering at Valley Camp. Eighty
thousand dollars' worth of property was de
stroyed in the great conflagration of '76.
Those who remained at Bandora set gal
lautly to work the creation of new homes
and the replanting of the spots which the
flames had left barren. Certainly their
efforts have been crowned with success, and
the fine young trees are growing with won
derful rapidity all over the camp. The en

their labor. A more pleasant affair could
hardly be imagined. The night was beau

sired. The grove selected by the Sabers
was tastefully decorated with flags and fes
toonings of all kinds. Hundreds of Chinese
lanterns served to illuminate the lawn, and
produced a weird appearance as they glim
mered among the trees.
The company, too, made a fine appear
ance. It has only been organized for a lit
tle over a year; yet the young men compos
ing it carried themselves like veterans.
Their natty uniforms and shining sabers
showed to fine advantage, and admiring
glances followed them wherever they went.
The feature of the evening was the drill

was somewhat uneven, the lines .were

THE CASE GROWING MORE INTERESTING
The conspiracy and blackmailing case
against John D. Bauder, the East End de
tective, is growing in interest. Last night
Inspector Wbitehonse went after another
one of the alleged conspirators; but the man
disappeared before the inspector was able to
get hold of him.
"ir I had caught that man to-day," he
said, "I would have had all the fellows I
want in the case. There are, about a dozen
others; but I don't want them, because they
are of no importance. However, while I
did not get the man I wanted to-day, he
cannot escape me and I will be sure to nail
"The chain of evidence which has been
woven: around the gang is so complete that
there cannot be any doubt of their convic
tion. I have about 500 people who could
testify in the case against them, but a large
number of them are afraid. As for Mr.
Bauder, I have very conclusive evidence
that be has represented himself as County
Detective Langhurst. Be has been work
ing his game here for two years or more,
and, I guess, be made it pay pretty well."
"Bow much money do vou think he
THOUSANDS OF SOLLABS.
"Well, that is hard telling; bnt I should
think the sum goes ud into the thousands of
dollars. I have a list of six people here
who were bled by somebody for $250 each,
and then I have the record of three others
who paid $S5 apiece. Apart from these,
there are a large number who got off with
$25, 20 and J10."
Seen in the county jail yesterday after
noon, Mr. Bander was induced to make a
statement of his side of the case. Be says it
is a case of persecution rather than prosecu
tion, and that Inspector Whitehouse is
simply trying to get even with him for bring
ing suit against a certain house in the East
End in which, he alleges, the Inspector
is interested. Mr. Bauder states that he
never received 1 cent of hush money, and
that if any was paid it went to the attorneys
and the aldermen, whom he proposes to
make stand their bnrden in the present dif
ficulty. Be states that he never soueht out
these houses, but went after them when peo
ple in the neighborhood sent him complaints
and asked him to look after them. All cases
were brought under the act of 1855, and he
therefore received part of the fine, butnever
a cent to let up on a case. Be farther
states that his detective agency was con
ducted on the same principle as " any other
in the city, and that while at present things
look a trifle bine, he will be able to fully
exonerate himself, and all he 'asks is a fair
IN OITE PABTICULAB CASS
in the East End, where it is charged that
Bauder received $10 bush money, he denies
this, and states that the only money he re
ceived in that case was the costs, which were
sent to him by Inspector Whitehouse, who
wanted the case dropped, giving as his rea
son that the woman furnished him with
valuable tips, and was just at present trying
to work out a murder case for him.
When Inspector Whitehouse was asked
what he had to reply to that statement, he
''The entire statement is nothing but one
string of falsehoods. I have never gone to
Bauder nor have I ever asked him to drop a
case to oblige ma. I- was-dever sufficiently
acquainted with him to make such aiequest
As it was supposed that Bauder referred
to Mrs. Sullivan as the woman who had
given tips to the Inspector, the latter said
that he felt sure Mrs. Sullivan did not know
him. To prove this be took a Dispatch
reporter to the house of tbe woman. Mrs.
Sullivan looked very much scared when the
late visitors ctme into her house. When
she was asked whether she was acquainted
with!Inspector Whitehouse, she said:
"No. I don't know Whitehouse nor
Whitehead, nor do I want to know him.
But I am sure I paid Mr. Bauder $10, and
sorry I am for it, because he had no evi

THE FURNACEMEN'S STRIKE.
Tho Men at the Carrie are Qatet and Or
derly Thfcre Was no Blot Yesterday
Two Bosses Quit Work.
The strikers at the Carrie Furnaces,
Keating station, were very much incensed
last night on a report published id the after
noon, that there had been a riot at that place.
They deny that there was anything like a
riot. The only sign of trouble was during
the forenoon when a blacksmith who lives
on Squirrel Bill approached the furnaces
saying that he was going to work. Several
of the strikers went up to him for the pur
pose of inducing him to return to his home.
Upon seeing them, he started to run
down the B. & O. tracks. As he was clear
of the works, they let hira go.
From present indications, the strikers
will be left alone to fight their battle with
their employers. The latter have not yet
seenred one man who would go to work at
the wages offered. If any men should come
here they will get a reception they will
probably never lorget The strikers are
not organized, but every man knows his
business. They are profiting by the exam
ple set before them by the Homestead
strikers. When they see a stranger around
the works, if he does not give a satisfactory
account of himself, he is told to travel.
Few people stop to argue the question, but
take the invitation to get out.
Two of the men, Frank Baker and Joseph
Bailer, one of them a scale boss and the
other a second helper, decided to quit yes
terday morning. Under the escort of six
deputy sheriffs and three of 'the proprietors,
the men went over the hills to Copeland
station, on the Pennsylvania Bailroad, and
took the first train for Pittsburg. Frank
Book, a laboring boss, who has also been
working, came out of the works and said he
would not return to work. The strikers say
these men made their couch in the top of the
new furnace, which they have occupied
sinceMondav night. There are only two or
three others inside the works now and it is
said that these are afraid to come out.
One of the deputy sheriffs went to Brad
dock and got drunk yesterday. One of the
strikers told him to skip over the hills to
Pittsburg. Be skipped.
Deputy Sherift Sweeney, who, it is
claimed, shot himself Wednesday, arrived
at Keating station on the 7 o'clock train last
evening. The fact that he was running
around is sufficient evidence, the strikers
claim, that he was not hurt.
Jill the railroad stations and roads leading
to the works on both sides of the river are
carefully watched. A nnmber of tbe depu
ties and over 100 strikers were gathered
around the river bank below the works last
night, as it was expected some men might
try to land from a boat. Bad an attempt at
a landing been made, a fight would have
been the result
The strikers also deny that the fires have
been extinguished in the coke ovens. The
company have 103 ovens, and only one fur
nace has been banked. The fires in the
ovens have been damped, but the coke has
not been drawn ont
TRYING TO BREAK AWAT.
A Western Flint Glass Hoase Wants to Kan
During the Summer.
A party of flint glass blowers called upon
President William Smith, of the American
Flint Glass Workers' Association, yester
day in regard to an advertisement in a
number of newspapers, inserted by a firm of
flint glass manufacturers in the West, who
are trying to break the glass workers' agree
ment in regard to the annual summer shut
down. The firm want to run their factory
the year round, with the exception of Sun
days. Their men are organized and refuse.
The firm advertised for men, but so far in
vain. They have offered a 10 per cent ad
vance on the present scale if the men would
work during the summer, but when the
other factories went into blast they were to
be paid the regular scale wages. This bait
was no inducement to even the few non
union men in the trade.
The firm sued a number of their appren-,
tice boys who. refused to work during tho
heated term. President Smith advises all
glass workers to keep away from the factory.
ANOTHER MILL RESUMES.
Works of J. W. Friend Si Co., Temperance
ville, to Start Monday.
The works of J. W. Friend & Co., in
Temperanceville, are about to resume, after
a long idleness. No work has been done in
the mill for nearly two years, and the open
ing is hailed with some rejoicing in the
West End. The puddling department will
first be put in operationt and the sound of
the machinist's hammer is constantly heard,
putting everything in condition.
The iron furnished by the worts in
Temperanceville will be shipped to the
Wheatland mill, also owned by J. W.
Friend & Co., and will be utilized there.
No reason is assigned either for the long
idleness or for the sudden resumption.
A LARGE INCREASE.
The Number of Window Glnss Pots to be
"' I'nt In Blast Is 1.322.
It has been ascertained that tbe number
of pots to go into blast in the various win
dow glass houses throughout the country at
the beginning ot the next fire is 1,322. The
largest number in operation at any one time
last year was 1,171. This increase of 151
pots is an indication that there will be a
speedy settlement of the wage dispnte at
the conference to take place in this city on
the 13th inst

Line is Bought Ont,
ASSURING A HEW OHIO STEAMER.
The Transfer Mads for $30,000, the New
Boat to Cost $35,000.
ONE OP ME PURCHASERS INTERVIEWED
One of the largest river deal3 made for
some time was consummated yesterday
afternoon, when James A. Henderson and
G. W. C. Johnston, the Water street grain
merchants, bought the controlling interest
in the Pittsburg and Cincinnati Packet
Line, for $30,000. Mr. Henderson was in
terested in the company, and superintended
The line owns the steamboats Hudson,
one of the largest freight and passenger boats
on the river; Katie Stockdale, Scotia and a
number of wharf boats. Messrs. Hender
son and Johnston purchased the Stockdale,
the Scotia and the new Pittsburg wharf
boat, which gives them
THE CONTBOLLINO IUTEBESX
in the line. The stock was held by H. 8.
Knowles and others, of East Liverpool, in
trust, and yesterday these interests were
transferred to Messrs. Henderson and John
ston. Speaking of tbe deal Mr. Henderson said:
"We propose to build a new boat at once to
replace the Stockdale, which is about
played out, and will be dismantled as soon
as tbe new one is ready, sometime in the
fall. The boat will cost $35,000, and
when finished, will be the finest freight and
passenger boat on the river. It will be
fitted up in elegant style to accommodate
the people, and will lack nothing that will
make lite pleasant and agreeable. All the
modern appliances for handling freight will
be put on, and this is
no sarAxx. coxsidebatiox.
"With the Hudson, the Scotia and the
new boat we-will have the completest packet-
line. We have asked for bids from boat
builders already, and the chances are that
it will be built somewhere below Pittsburg.
"This has been an excellent year, so far,
for our business. There has been an
abundance of water, and the result is wc
have carried plenty of freight and passen
gers. It is surprising how many people
travel on the river, and our boats never
come in or go out without a good crowd.
"The boat to be built will be a little
larger than the Katie Stockdale. It will
not be called 'Katie,' but we have not de
cided what we will call it"

GEN. DUP0NTS DEATH.
It Blar Beaalt In New Development ot lbs,
General Henry Dupont, head of tha
famous gunpowder manufacturing firm of
E. I. Dupont, DeKemours & Co., who died
at Wilmington, Del., yesterday morning,
was a man of considerable note other than
as a manufacturer. He was an active mem
ber of the Bepuhlican party and was on the
Bepublican electoral ticket in 1876, 1880,
1881 and 1888. He served in the Seminole
war and was Major General of the State
militia early in the late Civil War. His
wealth is estimated at $15,000,000.
His death is of interest to this city other
wise than that of an active business man of
great wealth, from the fact that he owned
60 or 60 acres ot ground in tbe Twenty
third ward, where he had a powder maga
zine. The territory is valuable, but tha
presence of the magazine deterred, people
from building in the vicinity for fear of
a powder quake. General Dupont's death
is expected to have an important influence
on, that section of the city, as it may be the
cause of the removal of the magazine, in
which event the section will be rapidly
