TWO EUBOPEAN SUBJECTS
To be Tried for a Murder Done in

Consul Schamberg- Aids in Bringing
Fugitive Huns to TriaL
A MESSAGE OF DEATH GOES BY HAIL
The eastbound mail train last evening
carried a message of death, transmitted lrom
the District Attorney of Clearfield county
to far distant Hungary. Two lives will pay
the penalty of murdering a fellow creature,
the package containing letters rogatory,
considered complete evidence by the Hun
garian courts. The history of the crime for
-which two Hungarian subjects stand ac
cused is familiar to the readers of The Dis
patch. On the 14th of last February the
friends of John Leging gathered to celebrate
his wedding at a hamlet in Clearfield coun
ty. Hilarity lapsed into a free fight, in
-which Joseph Loksa received fatal Injuries.
The guests scattered hurriedly, two of them
fleeing to Sceil vas Uzfalu.Hungary. Andrew
Iran and Stefen Toma did not escape the
remembrance of the relatives of the mur
dered man, and letters passed between the
two countries, finally resulting in the arrest
of Toma and Ivan by the Hungarian au
thorities. They notified Clearfield county
through Schamberg. His action in the case
had from first to last been based upon his
belief that extradition was sensational and
cumbersome. The Hungarian authorities
offered to try the case against the men, Toma
end Ivan, out of a jealous
SENSE OF INTERNATIONAL HONOR,
thus avoiding the expense and risk of extra
dition, and with the further proviso that the
evidence would he as carefully weighed
there as it before a Clearfield county jury.
This handsome offer was accepted by the
Clearfield county authorities.
After considerable correspondence be
tween S. V. "Wilson, District Attorney of
Clearfield county, and Consul Max Scham
berg, in which the latter repeated with em
phasis the motives of honor which had im
pelled the Hungarian authorities to under
take the trial of their subjects, District At
torney "Wilson commenced the preparation
of the "Letters Rogatory," as the official
documents ars styled. The Clearfield peo
ple looked upon the matter in the light of a
very considerable sum saved to the county
treasury, as the cost of extradition of the
two men would have added a great deal to
the usual expense of a murder trial.
Consul Schamberg received the letters
oogatory yesterday morning. They em
braced a complete record of the crime, in
cluding an attested copy of the indictments
found against Toma and Ivan; affidavits of
the eye witnesses of the affair; several let
ters from Hungary attesting the flight of
Toma and Ivan from Clearfield county, and
a number of documents in the Hungarian
language having a beaming upon the case.
BELIEVES THEY AKE CONVICTED.
The English portion of the document was
translated into Hungarian by Consul
Schaniberg's attaches yesterday. After a
careful examination of the papers Consul
Schamberg said: "The history of the crime
is very clearly presented in these documents,
and I have attached my official seal to the
mass of testimony which constitutes the
"Will the Hungarian courts accept this
testimony as final?" was asked.
"Oh, yes. The home government of, course
accepts my indorsement of the matter,
knowing that I hare familiarized myself
with the story of the crime. The evidence
is so strong that there can be no doubt that
Toma and Ivan will be executed. "While
the summary administration of Hungarian
justice in this case is a sad affair, it show?
clearly that the Austro-Hungarian Govern
ment is willing to go out of its way to aid
in the maintenance of the laws that govern
the relations of the two countries."
The letters rocatory were mailed last even
ing, and will reach their destination in the
course of a fortnight.
KO CHINESE WALL AFFAIR.
Non-Resldcnt Exhibitors Got nn Enrly
Cbnnce at the Exposition A Branch
Manager Johnston yesterday made some
pointed remarks about the Exposition and
those who desire space. He said the
directors, in the inception of the enterprise,
determined to administer in a liberal 7 ay.
They sent blank forms all over the conn
try to manufacturers, inviting them to
exhibit their products here.
"This," said Mr. Johnston, "is not an
enterprise exclusively for the people of the
city; they cannot expect we can build a
Chinese wall to exclude strangers. The de
mand for space already greatly exceeds the
supply, and we shall have, very reluctantly,
to refuse a large number who desire to ex
hibit. A novel feature of the exhibition will be
a model postoffice, to be exhibited by the
Yale Lock Company, of Stamford, Conn.
Postmaster Larkin has been consulted with
rerard to making it a branch, and it is pre
sumed a fully equipped postoffice will be in
the Exposition building.

FOR FELONIOUS ASSAULT.
That I the Choree Mado Acalost a Police
man by a Man Whom lie Shot Stories
of Both Sides A Bad Case.
Officers Shawl and Singer had an ex
citing time with several men whom they
were attempting to arrest yesterday after
noon. The former officer shot at a man and
struck him below the hip. The wound is a
a painful though not a fatal one; but
the bullet could not be extracted. Officer
Singer, it is alleged, clubbed his prisoner
About 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon the
attention of the -'icers was attracted to
James Br it ton an! Peter McGuire, who
were annoying pedestrians in the neighbor
hood o f 292 Second avenue. The former had
a toy Flobert rifle, like those given away
with purchases in some of the stores. Officer
Shawl threatened to arrest him if he did not
put up the tov; but the man paid no atten
tion to him. "Shawl then laid hold of Brit
ton, when a scuffle ensued, in which the lat
ter secured the officer's, mace. According to
thestoriesofbystanders,Britton started to run
across the street, when the officer called to him
to stop. The request was unheeded; the
policeman drew his revolver and fired, the
bystanders say, three times. The first took
enect in Britton's hip, the second struck a
bystander on the top of the left car, and the
third went in the air. The man struck on
the ear is a "Welshman, and resides on the
Southside. He left word at the scene of the
shooting that he would be at the hearing
this morning to testify.
At the Central station several officials
denied that there had been any shooting at
all, though a charge was made to Inspector
McAleese that Shawl was under the influ
ence of liquor when he shot.
Upon being shot, Britton was removed to
his home in the rear of 292 Second avenue,
where two physicians probed for the bullet,
but could not find it. The Homeopathic
Hospital ambulance was sent after ihe man;
but his family objected to his removal. His
father, it is claimed, is occupying a bed
next to him, in a dying condition.
Britton's brother went before Alderman
O'Donnell last night and swore ont a war
rant for Shawl's arrest, charging him with
felonious assault. Inspector McAleese went
bail for the officer, and he was not locked
Pete McGuire. who was beaten by officer
Singer, is a well known character, and lives
near the spot where arrested. He was
frenzied by one of the officers calling him a
thief, and saying he had always been a thief.
At this the prisoner refused to go.
Officer Shawl denies the statement of the
bystanders and said:
"I went up to Britton and told him to
pnt away the gun he was snapping at peo
ple. He refused to do it, and said no-policeman
could arrest him. I told him if he
tried any crooked work I would shoot him,
intending to scare him. He replied, 'Oh,
I can shoot as quick as you.' At the same
time he put his right band back to his hip,
and, thinking he was going to shoot me, I
fired at him. The bullet hit him in the leg,
and made only a flesh wound."

A St. Lonls Man Does Up the 9Ion. House
for a Few Days' Board.
One of the clerks of the Monongahela
House, with a disgusted look on his face,
leaned over the counter yesterday and re
marked to a reporter that a fellow from St
Louis had beaten the hotel for a few days'
"Such a thing," he continued, "seldom
happens, but when it does it always ma'kes
me feel mean to think that I would allow a
man to work the house. It doesn't pay to
beat a hotel. Descriptions of such men are
sent around to all the houses, and the clerks
keep a sharp lookout for them."
"When he had expressed his candid opinion
of dead beats, the clerk said: "It is sur
prising how often a gnest will ask what
lime a train leaves. He will never inquire
of the same clerk twice, but if there are ten
of them behind a desk as a general rule he
will ask everyone of them. I suppose peo
ple are anxious to get away, and are afraid
'of having any mistakes made. They are
not satisfied with the statement of one or
two men, bnt if they can get a half dozen
people to confirm it they finally come to be
lieve that the first clerk who told them the
train would leave at 5 o'clock'in the after
noon was right" 1
A MARKET HOUSE GALLERY.
Scheme, to Dispose of Allegheny Sidewalk
An Allegheny official has fathered a
scheme to remove from the sidewalks about
the market house the army of small .vend
ers which obstructs the passage of pedestri
ans on market days and makes it a work of
great difficulty to reach the inside of the
His idea is to utilize th'e interior of the
building for a gallery, upon which the small
wares may be sold. Bunning clear around
the building are a series of iron posts amply
strong enough to sustain a' substantial gal
lery, and there is said to be enough space in
the' way of heighth. Steps and approaches
could be easily put in, and the lower floor
thus relieved of a large number of huck
sters. The plan will . be presented at the
next meeting of the Market Committee.
A COMING MEETING.
An Attempt Will be Made to Federate the
The engineers, brakemen, firemen and
switchmen of the four brotherhoods of the

time in the latter part of September, for the
purpose of forming the Supreme Council of

The object is the federation or the lour
brotherhoods, a plan which has been dis

summated. Bepresentatives erf all the

RULE OR RUIN RIOTS.
Foreign Coke Workers Murderously
Assault Hen at Work
AND DAMAGE LOTS 'OF PROPERTY.
Two Tery Ugly Outbreaks at tho' United
and Hecla "Works.
THE SHERIFF COMES TO THE CALL.
A neatly-dressed, mild-mannered gentle
man possibly, from his appearance, a
bookkeeper or agent of one of the firms
operating in the coke regions came into
this office la3t evening and said:
"I am no striker not even a manual
laborer or a trades union "man "but I took a
passive part in a riot to-day; carried a club
and kept' in the midst of the mob; all be
cause I simply had to. It was a coke
workers' riot an ugly affair before they gat
through with it"
The gentleman Vent on to explain that he
was connected with one of the coke firms;
that he was at Calumet yesterday forenoon;
that a mob of 200 or mora Hungarians was
formed there; that he was told to pick up a
good big club and join, or take the conse
quences, and that he avoided the latter.
The mob was formed, it seems, because the
men at several of the works had, of their
own free will, accepted the 12 per cent ad
vance in wages agreed upon three days ago,
and resumed work before the notices could
be posted or the Huns be gotten together to
resume at other works. Those still idle
persisted in believing there
MUST BE SOMETHING "WRONG
in the others resuming, and made up their
minds to stop it Hence the formation of
the Calumet mob shortly before noon. The
gentleman's own short story of the rioting
that followed mav safely and properly be
given, without his name, for he was in'the
midst Of it, carrying a club, as he had to,
and saw everything:
"The infuriated foreign workmen from
Calumet were soon joined by about 250
others from Mammoth, and proceeded to
the works at'United, Hecla and Mutual to
stop the men who had at those places re
sumed work. I had to go with them to
United and what I saw was rough in the
extreme. They assaulted two ash-carl driv-.
ers, beat them over the heads till they
were all but unconscious, and almost killed
the stable boss. I picked him up, and went
to assist him dome; but they made me quit
They smashed all the windows in the build
ings here and all the oven doors, and then
marched on, 300 or 400 strong, to Thaw &
Dorsey's Hecla works, where they raised
the worst and most damaging riot of the lot
I know about what the results at Hecla are;
but if, as you say, you already have the
story of an eye-witness from there, you'd
better take up his account just here, where
mine leaves off. I was told the manager at
me united nad sent tor the militia.
Before the arrival of the gentleman who
spoke as above, another, a professional man,
had come into this office to tell of what he
had seen at Hecla. It is obvious why nei
ther nis name nor mat ot tne otner miorm
ant can be published neither of them feels
that he would again dare to venture into
the region. The story of the gentleman
from Hecla follows in its order:
THE STORY FROM HECLA.
"The men who came over from Morewood
all foreigners, and mostly Hungarians
drove over 500 men from the Hecla "Works,
shut off the steam in the engine, clubbed
Chief Engineer Jack Green away and
nearly killed him. They were, all armed
with clubs ana coke slats, and Green was
beaten over the head and all cut up. Two
others were also dreadfully injured one,
the blacksmith at the works, and, the other
a yardman. Then the rioters
broke the engine valve, which
stopped the cars rnnning up and down the
shaft, and began flooding the mine with
water. Three men in the mine, to escape
with their lives, had to ascend the shaft on
ladders. As they did so, one by one, they
no sooner got away from death by drowning
in the mine than they were belabored by the
rioters until laid aside, helpless. The mob
threw all the larries ofl the tracks,
dumped a bale of hay and a lot
of wheelbarrows down the mine shaft
and choked it effectually for at least a week
to come, smashed windows, broke oven
doors and finally cleared out, leaving evi
dences of the worst two hours' work I have
seen in a long while.
"You want to know the cause of all this?
"Well, the 12 per cent advance had not yet
been given or conceded at Morewood, and
the foreigners wouldn't passively let any
other works enjoy it or its fruits."

The story of these ugly outbreaks, as it
comes from the coke regions, is told in
special telegrams received at midnight
From Greensburg comes this one, telling
about tne Hecla riot: --
This afternoon, abont 3 o'clock, a desperate
riot was inaugurated at the Hecja Coke 'Works.
The miners and drivers at the Mammoth
works, owned by J. W. Moore, organized a
mob numbering 100 or 500 men. They pro
ceeded to Fisherdale and then to United, and
at each place they compelled the workmen to
join them, and going to the Heel works
ot "William Thaw, war wa. opened up on
the workmen" there. There were then in the
mob about 700 men. The men at work were set
upon by the infuriated mob, and some of them
were terribly beaten. The wagons were thrown
down the shaft Three men coming up in a cage
were strnckby one of tbo wagons, and they were
all, seriously hurt One of them bad a pick
driven through his shoulder; another was in
jured about the bead, and both will die. The
larries were thrown from the tracks a distance
of GO feet and broken to pieces. The buildings
were attacked and tbe windows broken, and
men, women and children fled for their lives.
Word was sent here to tbe Sheriff calling for
assistance. Deputies were dispatched to the
scene, bnt when they had arrived there the
men bad cooled down considerably. The dam
age to the propertyls great ,
The mob was composed of Huns, Italians
and Americans. All the men at the works in
that neighborhood went to work this morning,
except the ones at Mammoth, and
the refusal pi J. W. Moore to
pay the advance caused the men
to .inaugurate the war. Tbe stable boss at
Mammoth was set upon bva partyof Huns and
beaten until nearly dead. J. W. Moore said
to-night that he could not possiblr pay tbe ad
vance. "Unless the price of coke advances, to
run under the new schedule of prices would bo
to lose money," said he.
Then there was this special from Connells
ville, giving later details:
When tbe Sheriff and his posse went to Moycr
this afternoon to arrest th6 rioting
nuns, the"y found none in sight The
posse, however, surrounded the. houses
in the valley and intended to arrest
every Hun in the houses. They found but
two. They were placed under guard at Squire
Murphy's office. The posse then went up the
bill and arrested two more.
Word was received that Huns, to tbe number
of 150, were entrenched behind a stone fence,
armed with pistols, knives and cinbs;were
awaiting the coming of the officers. The men
separated and surrounded the unruly for
eigners. When they came within 75 yards of
the Hans, firo was opened upon the officers.
It was returned promptly, and the Huns
broke and ran. Noocowashurtoneltherside.
Sheriff Miller collected his men and formed a
plan of action. Tbe Huns were meantime out
of sight and the officers started toward Mor
gan station, where it was learned the Huns bad
collected. On tbe way throngb fields and
over bills, tho posse was fired upon
several times by hiding Huns. When
the men arrived at Morgan station
they found the Huns in their rendezvous, the
souphouse. After parleying a whilo some of
the rioters came out and fired upon tbe officers,
who were on a bluff overlooking the house. At
this time it cannot be learned it any person in
either party was injured. They were still
flcbtlnc at the last report .
The Huns are well armed with revolvers and
knives and some hare muskets, Tney are de
termined to resist arrest and considerable
trouble is anticipated in dlelodglng them from
their stronghold. A. C. Duncan, the officer
assaulted by the Huns this morning, was badly
cut about tho face by the stones thrown by tho
rioters. The bone in one of his legs was almost
broken by a large club wielded by one of the
Huns. "Neither Sbrum nor Franks, the other
officers, were injured.
No cause can bo assigned for the action ot
tha Hungarians in. first assaulting tbe work
men at Coalbrook. After the scale had been
fixed at the conference at Everson, tbe matter
was Interpreted to them, and they appeared
perfectly willing to resume work, but no sooner
had the English-speaking miners started to
wurjt taan tne xiungs oroke out. aucj uavu
been drinking all the time during the
strike, and. to-day when they resisted
arrest by the posse were wild with liquor. The
four Huns arrested al Mover were taken to
Uniontown this evening. They acted as if they
expected to be rescued by their countrymen,
bdt were easy to control until just before
boarding the train. Tbey then attempted to
escape, ana very neany succewucu, u mu
guard was not large.-
Another correspondent from Scottdale
gives an account of the trouble atMoyer
and the Morgan works as he obtained it
His telegram follows:
From information just received, which is be
lieved reliable, tho following Is a correct state
ment o f the trouble as tar as can be learned:
The Hungarians at Mover Works, of W. J.
Bainey. heard that the Fort Hill Works, of the
same company, were working, and tbey started
in a body to take them out, not having under
stood that the strike was settled on their route.
When they came to the Morgan plant of the
H. U. Fnck Coke Company where the men had
resumed work, the men of the Morgan works
as soon as they discovered them approaching
'fled In fright. Some of the men, it is reported,
were roughly bandied, and tho sheriff was
wired for. He arrived on the scene this after
noon and the Informant states was industrious
ly engaged in searching the soup house, a some
what notorious resort for Huns at Sherricks
station, for tbe offenders, but the reports of his
being routed with bis force and badly beaten
From what can be learned tbe report of riot
at Mover station arose from tbe fact of tho
township constable attempting to arrest some
linns for alleged liquor selling at that place,
and was roughly bandied, but this had no con
nection with tbe strike. .
A large meeting of tho Standard miners was
held at Mr. Pleasant to-day. Resolutions wero
passed condemning the riotous actions of the
Huns at Bessemer and Alice yesterday, and
they voted to a man to resume work on Mon
day morning. Tbe Central employers also
held a like meeting, and took this
same action. Applications hive been re
ceived by tho organizers of the K.
of L. here to organize over 30 new assemblies
of the order in the coke reeion, but according
to tbe laws of the order it cannot be done while
any trouble exists at any works in tbe region.
It is safe to predict an increase ot 4,000 mem
bers to National Trades Assembly 135 in the
next CO days,

Carrie Furnace Strikers Are Qnlte Peace
able Now The True Story of Friday's
A trip was made to Keating station on
the B. & O. line yesterday evening to as
certain the true state of affairs at the Car
rie furnace. There was no sign of disturb
ance in the neighborhood, and the deputy
sheriffs were smoking on the porch of their
shanty. They reported a complete cessa
tion ot hostilities. The affair has resolved
itself into an ordinary strike, and as soon
as the men get their price they will go to
Several of the men were seen, and all at
tacked the sub-sheriffs bitterly, blaming
them for Friday's disturbance. It is said
that when the names of tbe rioters were
called, each man stepped forward without
hesitation and gave himself up; but only
on the strict understanding that he was to
be tried in his own township, the officers
agreeing to bring them before 'Squire
Laury, who lives on the outskirts of Brad-
uock. v nen the party reached the Squire's
office the officers asked the men to go
Up to Braddock- and have a drink. Ihey
firoceeded to a saloon and there the men got
nto a semi-intoxicated condition, the of
ficers paying for everything that was drink,
and encouraging the prisoners to drink.
Then they announced their real intentbns,
and brought the men to the railway station.

that they were being bamboozled. Theoris

made an attempt to get free. Hencc(the
The house of George Morrison, near
'Squire Laury's, where several of the pris
oners boarded, was visited. Mr. Morrison
says he offered to bail two of the prisoners
day before yesterday, but was refused. He
then journeyed to Pittsburg, where he re
newed his 6ffer yesterday morning and was
again refused. He claims an at
tempt was made to implicate him in
the riot, and a warrant was drawn
up for his arrest He, however, beat a re

stories published in the evening papers
about their hostile intentions. No one was

A Postoffice Messenger, Wears a Scar and
Tells All Abont It.
A messenger in the Allegheny Postoffice
bobs up with a genuine and well-authenticated
snake story genuine because the boy
has the snake-bite to show. Torrance Ky
feldt, pne of the special delivery boys, was
given a 15-day vacation last Monday, which
he proceeded to enjoy at Introbe. "While
reclining in the grass, half asleep, Tor
rance felt a savage bite on his face, just be
lowthe left car. Springing up he saw a
black-snake in the grass near him. Like
any well-regulated messenger boy, Tor
rance travels with a pistol. Hastily pull
ing it out, he fired at his snakeship. The
shot infuriated the "pesky varmint, ".and
he wriggled toward Torrance, who fired
once more, the second shot doing the busi
ness. Mr. Snake measured sir feet long, which
is doing pretty well for an ordinary every
day black-s5ake.t The boy rushed to a local
doctor, who applied remedies which averted
whatever danger lay in the bite. Tne
youngster is now nursing his bite at his
home in Pleasant Valley.

Will a Sheriff's Sale Givo an Unencumbered
Title to the Buyer?
SDFP0SED STATUS OF TflE T. M. M. L. AM.I
Said a gentleman yesterday: "There is
an interesting question connected with the
attempt to sell Library Hall on a mortgage.
I don't believe it can be done and I think the
purchaser will bay subject to a perpetual
lease by the Young Men's Mercantile Li
brary and Mechanics' Institute. Go and
see the law published in 1860, page 811,
Acts of Assembly."
S. M. Baymond, Esq., pulled down the
volume required, but remarked 'when he
looked over the act that so far as anything
in it was concerned, he could not see
why the buildings might not be sold on
An act passed in 1859 provides that said build
ing, when completed and ready for use, shall,
with tbe ground aforesaid, be perpetually

Company and Mechanics' Institute, on tbe fol

tho first day of January in each year, all neces

and buildings may be subjected, and In addi
tion thereto a'sum not over 6 per cent per
annum on the whole cost of said ground and
boilding, or such part thereof as shall not have
been repaired by the slid Mercantile Library

and in consideration of the payment of the

provided, nevertheless, that whatever rents and
revenues they may receive over and above the
amount of the taxes and interest and repairs
shall be paid to tho corporation hereby created,
to reimburse tbe same for the cost of tbe
ground and buildings. And provided further,
that if tbe Mercantile Library and Mechanics'
Institute sball at any time be in arrears for two
whole years' taxes; repairs and interest then

TEOVISIOlf S OP THE FIEST ACT.
The gentleman who first spoke said: "The
original act of 1849 provides for a home for
a library and the diffusion of public educa
tion. A time came when the Young Men's
Mercantile Library Company did not find it
expedient to assume the obligation: to pay
G per cent etc., spoken of above. It didn't
earn it The Library Hall Company and
the Young Men's Mercantile Library and
Mechanics' Institute are separate organiz
ations, and the question that arises is what
legal action is there that can relieve the
hall company from its . chartered
obligations to provide a home for a library
and the diffusion ot public education?
There is a reference in the minutes of a
meeting held in February, 1871, to an agee
ment made or proposed to be made between
the two companies. I have heard it said
the agreement wad that the Hall Company
was to manage the buildings as trustee for
the Young Men's Mercantile Library Com
pany. This agreement was subject to rati
fication by the stockholders. I do not know
whether it ever was or was not ratified. The
only thing I could find was a minute that
such an arrangement had been agreed upon.
A3 TO POWER TO BOKEO-W.
' 'The original company was only allowed
to borrow to tbe extent of its capital stock
which was $104,000. It borrowed from the
Sanitary Fair fund, from the "West Penn
Hospital and this mortgage of $30,000 is
certainly in excess of what it was originally
allowed to borrow and this is the one that is
being foreclosed. There is a question in my
mind as to whether the Hall Company had
a right to give a third mortgage. The two
companies act independently of each other.
I think the Young Men's Mercantile Li
brary Company can Btay these notwith
standing the sale by the Sheriff."
Continuing the search another member
was found who said he believed some people
were made trustees and that they acted with
out authority and never made a report, as he
held that the loan could not be made without
the approval of the Library Association,
and he said ,the third loan was illegal be
cause .it exceeded the amount of indebted
ness allowed $10,000. He supposed, how
ever, that equity might enforce payment up
to the amount allowed by legislative enact
ment. He further said the lines were re-t
laxed in the days when the Legislature was
untrammeled and did legislative job work
for any one who wanted it and was willing
to pay for it He said he didn't know of
any improper influences to get tne limit ex
tended, in fact didn't believe there were
THINKS T MIGHT PAT.
This gentleman made an arithmetical cal
culation to show that he could rent the
building so as to make it more than self
supporting, and rather more than half inti
mated that the management hadn't em
ployed its talent, or talents, to the best pos
sible advantage, possible as tbe taxes were
light on account of the character of the in
stitution. He thought Mr. Brunot might
possibly be partly submersed in the soup.
Still another member of the Mercantile
Library Association said: "There will be
quite a story in this matter when those who
are working it up are through, but I don't
feel like saying anything at present"
Prom all that can be learned some inter
esting information may be expected by and
by, but for reasons best known to themselves
nearly all the people interviewed Refused to
tell all they knew, and made it a condition
precedent to talking that their names
should not be used.

A Johnstown Stntne.
A party of Pittsburgers left yesterday

The Sisters propose to use the phonograph
in elocution; music, both vocal and instru

The phonograph seemed to magnify defects,
so much so that where perfection and
beauty passed almost unnoticed, the defects
became glaring. It will be a study to the
acoustic sharp to explain why one does not
recognize his own voice and unmercifully
criticises it as it comes from the phono

certain harmonies in the phonograph.
The visitors spent a few moments in ex

The academy proper is a massive brick
building, and is undoubtedly the most
handsome structure in "Westmoreland

Fathers G. 6. Grace and James Cosgjave,

A LIVELY SKIRMISH.
Potton Embezzled 81.380.17 From
Sovereigns of Industry.
Probably the liveliest meeting in the
history of the Grand Council of the Inde
pendent Sovereigns of Industry was held
last evening in the Moorhead Building,
Second avenue and Grant street The at
tendance was large and there was a con
tinual fight from the beginning to the end of
The fight started over the representatives
of Southside Council No. 7 and Economy
Council Ko. 13. The officers of these
councils had not been installed by the
Grand President, and he decided that their
representatives were not entitled to a vote in
tbe grand body. He admitted that Econo
my Council bad notified him when their
officers were elected, but he forgot to attend
the meeting to install them. He claimed
Southside Council had not notified him.
The fight was long and warm, as the law
does not provide that the Grand President
shall be notified. The representatives were
allowed to remain.
The next fightrwas a short one, and re
sulted in an indefinite postponement of the
consideration of the proposed new general
law, which was claimed to have been pre
sented in the interest of the grand officers.
The Grand Secretary, D. B. "Wood, re
signed his office, and Samuel Harper was
elected to fill the unexpired term. "William
Anschutz was elected Grand Treasurer in
place of J. "W. Patton. who mysteriously
disappeared about two months ago.
A board of seven Grand Trustees was
electedand the bonds of the Grand Secretary
and Treasurer were fixed at $1,000 and $2,000
respectively. The Grand Secretary's report
for the last quarter shows a total member
ship of 7,688, an increase of 653, with coun
cils to hear from. The financial report
shows that tbe amount taken by Grand
Treasurer Patton was ?1,3S0 17. The re
ceipts for the lastquarter were $304 43. The
check for $500 voted for the Johnstown
sufferers, which remains unpaid owing to
the embezzling of the funds by Grand Treas

WILLING TO COMPROMISE.
Owners of tho Carrie Furnace Offer

The owners of the Carrie Furnace have

AGITATING FOR A P.O.
Alleghenians Again Clamoring for
a Government Building,
APPEAL TO CONGRESSMAH BATHE.
An Annual Business of Haifa Million Used
as an Argument,
MAYOR PEARSON MOTES IN THE MATTER
The long-dormant scheme of a new Gov
ernment building for Allegheny City has
taken new life within the last few days.
Mayor Pearson, in response to urgent re
quests from prominent citizens, will wait
upon Colonel Thos. M. Bayne on Monday
for the purpose of consulting with tbe rep
resentative of the Allegheny district in
Congress as to the proper step to be taken to
secure concerted action upon the matter
prior to the meeting of Congress in October
It is confidently believed by Alleghenians
that the Bayne-Qnay coalition will have
enough influence with the Congressional
Committee on Appropriations to secure a
sum amply adequate for the proper pro
vision of a Government bnilding befitting
the importance ot Allegheny as a city and
as a postal branch oi the United States mail
service. Mayor Pearson has been requested
to call a public meeting to consider the
situation, but stated last night that he had
decided to consult Colonel Bayne before
taking any action, as the upholding of
Artemus "Ward's ideas about ''the old flag
and an appropriation' has from time im
memorial been one of the constituent cares
of the local Congressman. It is certain,
however, that an active reagitation of the
question will be begun within a few days.
Of the former efforts in this line, the work
of a special committee appointed jointly by
Mayor Pearson and City Councils in the
early part of last year, was the most ener
getic, and it is believed that failure to
secure an appropriation was only due to the
facts that the administration was Demo
cratic, and that Hon. S. J. Bandall, chair
man of the Committee on Appropriations in
the last Congress,
WAS ILX, AND ABSENT
from "Washington at the time of the Alle
gheny committee's visit to tbe capital to
urge the expediency of an appropriation.
The committee of last year embraced the
cream of Allegheny business men. Mr.
John H. Hampton was chairman, and Rob
en Dilworth was secretary, and a consider
able amount of enthusiasm was engendered
at the several'meetings. Among those who
went to "Washington to urge Allegheny's
claims were the following gentlemen: Post
master Swan, James B. Scott, James L.
Graham, Samuel "Watson, M. Harman,
Arthur .Kennedy, John A. Myler, .
"v erthsimer, James McFarland, "W. D.
Moore, Julius Groetzinger, "William S.
McKinney, and the late William Semple
and James E. Crow. So certain was the
public that some tangible result would be
attained, that a very heated controversy
arose as to the most expedient site for th'e
new building, bflt the refusal of Congress to
make an appropriation put a damper upon
Mayor Pearson was seen last night, and
said: '"The city not only needs the 41x30
room in which the postoffice has been locat
ed for the past 25 years, but the citizens feel
THAT IT IS HIGH TIME
that a change for the better be made. At
the time the former memorial to Congress
was prepared by the special committee the
statement made by Postmaster Swan showed
the Allegheny postoffice yielded a net revenue
Of$32tOOu porAnnumf-tlia irnxzaill''bvi-.
ness ot $450,000 in round numbers was done,
and that every postoffice inspector who had
examined tbe postoffice during the last 12
years had professed astonishment at the
amount of business crowded into the small
space. A most convincing array of statistics
was presented regarding the general growth
of Allegheny City, unlortunately without
weight in the eyes of a Democratic na
tional administration. It is now generally
felt that the Republican administration
should be urged to give to Allegheny a
building commensurate with her needs.
Postmaster Swan stated to me the other day
that the postoffice wonld do a business far in
excess of $500,000 in the. current year.
There are so many arguments in favor of a
Government building, and the possibility
of a successful ending of a popular move
ment for it is now so promising that I hope
to stir up a feeling which will result in
success. Colonel Bayne is now and always
has been heartily in lavor of the plan.nd
I shall see him next Monday at his summer
residence in Bellevue and secure his valu
