Court Decision Applies.
THE CAPTAIN CORRECTS MISTAKES.
Captain Wishart is weary of prosecuting
men lor Sunday selling with no permanent
effect in inducing them to desist. For sev
eral consecutive Sundays his agents nave
collected evidence against Drnggist Kaer
cher, "Milk-Shake" Martin, the Casino
Museum vendor, and one or two others, and
informations have been made on Monday,
followed by trials later in the week; but,
with unquenchable ardor, the violators have
opened up on the succeeding Sunday, fract
uring the day of rest. Besides, it is late in
the season, and the lemonade, milk-shake
and soda water trill soon be out of date
Tiie Law and Order chief has a new plan
which will be brought to bear next Sunday.
2fot only will the sellers be informed
agast and duly arrested, but the buyers
will share the fame fate that is if they can
be found the following day. The unwitting
consumer ot the palate-cheering milk-shake
will quench his thirst next Sunday with the
cold and fishy eyes of the Law and Order
myrmidons upon him to his peril. Infor
mations will be laid the next day, and Al
derman Carlisle will do a land office busi
ness imposing the same fine as in the cases
against sellers. At least this is the pro
gramme. HE WILL FINE TIIE1I.
Alderman Carlisle was seen last night in
regard to this pleasing prospect for the .
thirsty public. He was loath to admit that
the story was true, and finally, when
pressed, admitted that Captain Wishart had
said that he "might" change his tactics as
"Will you fine those who are arrested on
the charge of buying on Sunday?"
"It will be ?25 and costs for each and
everyone of them. Of course I shall fine
anybody arrested on the charge of buying
on Sunday. The Supreme Court held that
the buyer was as culpable as the
seller on the old principle that
'it takes two to make a bargain,'
and the law as construed is so
.plain that I do not believe that anyone will
appeal. Furthermore, I believe that this
plan will wind up Sunday selling in Pitts,
burg, for where there is one seller there are
hundreds of buyers, all of tnem equally
liable. The Brooks law explicitly says
that those iound in an illicit whisky or
beer concern arc equally liable to fine with
the proprietor, and the Supreme Court has
decided positively upon the constitution
ality of the Brooks law."
"Then this move is not bluff?" asked
"It is my dnty to administer the law, and
I shall fine anvone brought before me on a
charge of Sunday buying," said the Alder
man. A KECKUITKf G LEAGUE.
"One would think," observed Mr. Car
lisle, with cutting sarcasm, "that some
newspaper men consort only with gamblers
and other disreputable people, to judge from
what they say of the Law and Order
League. It is not on its last legs. On the
contrary, where it had one friend two years
agoitha3 20 now. This talk about per
suading people to sell and then prosecuting
them is a lie. I will give you or anyone
else $100 if you can produce a
case in which the seller did not
break the law of his own free will. Think
of the expenses which have been put on the
league by the ignoring of the plainest kind
of cases by the grand juryl Captain Wish
art is doing a noble work in restoring the
morals of this community, and he is univer
sally respected" and mnch more in the
same strain of eloquent enconium upon
Captain Wishart, past, present and future.
There were five cases entered before Al
derman Carlisle yesterday and no hearings.
He refused to give the names of the prose
HE DENIES THE CHARGE.
Captain Wishart Was Not Assaulted, Be
cause He Was nt Home.
An afternoon paper printed a story yester
day stating that Captain Wishart had been
assaulted on Sunday morning by an ex
saloon keeper from Penn avenue. It was
alleged that the Captain had been kicked
and cut about in a most fearful manner.
A Dispatch reporter who went to the
home of the Captain on Mount Washing
ton last night, was astonished to find the
head of the Law and Order League in the
best of health.
"That story is a lie from the whole
cloth," he said. "I was not outside my gate
on Sunday, which is evidence enough that
I certainly could not be on Penn avenue."
Captain Wishart was also asked whether
there was any truth in the statement that
Major Ncgley and W. A. Herron had left
"If that is true I do not know of it," said
he, "and I will not believe it until I see it
stated over their own signatures."
CAN INFORM ON SUNDAY.
Alderman Brinker' Novel Point Regarding
L. & O. Prosecutions.
Captain Wishart made informations be
fore Alderman Brinker yesterday against
John Martin, of Smithficld street; Thomas
Quinn, of Fifthavenue, and A. J. Kacrcher,
of Federal strtet, Allegheny, for selling on
last Sunday. All of them gave bail for
hearings this morning between, 9 and 10
Martin was also sued before Alderman
Burns yesterday for selling on the same day
and paid his fine Alderman Brinker said
yesterday that efforts to evade the Law and
Order League by having an action brought
and a fine paid before another alderman
would prove futile, as an information could
be made on Suuday as well as on any other
day, and the process need not be served
until the next day. He said if the informa
tions he has against these defendants were
looked into, they would show the date to be
previous to any made at other offices.
FOE EFFICIENT SEETICES.
Allegheny OIHceri Given Permanent Posl
tions la Johnstown.
This morning Officers Kroescn and Crane,
of Allegheny, will leave for Johnstown to
reside permanently. They have been offered
permanent positions with the Johnstown
nnd Stony Creek Railroad Company. The
offer was made through Chief ot Police
Kirschleron account of the good service

K0T ENOUGH CLERKS.
Tito Slnte Demands Tax Statistic of the
City Without .Providing Machinery
What the Official! Hay.
The County Commissioners yesterday sent
to the city authorities a set of blanks issued
by the State, according to an act of last
May, which requires them to furnish to the
State a complete tabular statement of all
taxes collected in the county, including
State, county, borough, township or ward
tax, and poor tax, road tax, personal prop
erty and occupation and corporation tax,
together with what is received from
licenses of various kinds and the tax on the
real estate of chartered corporations, includ
ing railroads and the tax on limited part
nerships, Controller Morrow thinks it will be almost
impossible to furnish the required statement,
as the act requires the tax receipts for the
year ending .Tune 1, while the city fiscal
year ends FeDruaryl. As the law was
made to secure an accurate estimate of the
taxes received throughout the State, for the
purpose of forming a basis for equitable
revenue laws, it provides for payment of
the necessary expenses; but Secretary Stew
art sends a circular with the blanks stating
that, as the Legislature made no appropri
ation for the expenses, the compilation must
be "a labor of love." I
.Mr. Morrow estimated that two clerks
would be required for a month or six weeks
to do the amount of work expected; but, as
there is no appropriation for payment of
extra clerks, he docs not see how- he can fur
nish the figures. Section 3 provides thatany
official refusing to supply the require in
formation that may be in his possession,
whentlemanded, shall be guilty of a misde
meanor, and subject to a fine cf 200.
The blanks above referred t were present
ed to the Board of Assessors by a clerk from
the County Commissioners' o&ce, and Upon
examination it was decided, as the records of
that office do not show collections, that the
board named had nothing to do with the
matter. The Controller Dejng the chief
financial officer of tho cityj and the fiscal
records being kept in his once, Mr. Case,
Chief Assessor, after examination, on behalf
of the board, referred the blanks to Mr.
Morrow. This action was officially reported
by letter to the County Commissioners, and
the Board of Assessors expressed aj willing
ness to aid in the preparation of the statistics
wanted, so far as possible, with reasonable
clerical help. I
THE TYPHOID SCARE.
Tho Sonthside Comparatively Free From
the Fever There Is No Epidemic Yet,
Although It May Come at Any Time.
It has been reported that the Southside
had once more a typhoid fever epidemic.
An investigation last night,however,proved
that so far the disease is scarce on that side
of the river.
Br. J. M. Duff, although naturally averse
to having his name in print, was at last led
to remark: "I do not wish to question the
statement of any of my.professional friends;
bnt if there is an epidemic of typhoid on
this side of the river, I have failed to dis
cover it as yet Neither has any other
physician expressed himself to me to that
Dr. E. A. Mundorff said: "There is no
epidemic of typhoid on the Southside, and
there is no more fear that it will occur than
there is in any other year. Whenever we
have a rainless summer the Southside is
liable to have an epidemic of fever, and
that state of things will continue until our
water supply is changed. Whenever the
river is low, organic matter containing the
germs of disease is always apt to contam
inate our water supply) and disease may
come at any time."

JUSTICE'S 25-IN-THE-SLOT MACHINE.
There was some startling testimony sworn
to in the prosecution of the Bauder detect
ives yesterday as to certain inventions
whereby defendants might drop $25 in the
slot of Justice's machine and get injustice
out of it At 4:30 p. 21. the case of the
Commonwealth against the Bauder and
Doyle Detective Agency came before Al
derman J. B. Hyndman at the East Liberty
Police Station, on Frankstown avenue. The
defendants against whom warrants had
been issued severally and collectively
were-J. B. Bowder, James Doyle, L. J.
Bender, George Kelly, F. D. Stoner, H.
Brockett, John Doherty, Dominie Galla
gher and William Nagel. The charge was
one of conspiracy to obtain money illegally.
Attorney John Matron appeared for the
Commonwealth; Maj. Montooth for Galla
gher; Attorney J. M. Bourke and L. P.
Stone, respectively, for Doyle and Doherty.
The remainder of the defendants represented
John J. Arnodt, of 155 Frankstown
avenue, deposed that defendants, Galla
gher and Doyle, came to his house about
the middle of last July, and Doyle read a
warrant against him for selling liquor with
out license. Doyle then asked him if he
could get bail for 13,000, and he said he
could, and, making an excuse about getting
his shoes, slipped
OUT BT THE BACK BOOB,
and got off to Ohio, whence he only returned
a few days since. The warrant was signed
by 'Squire Maneese. The day of the occur
rence was Monday. Doyle told him the
hearing was to be on Thursday. In his ab
sence, Victor Miller, a friend, kindly took
his case in hand and went to Maneese's of
fice, Mrs. Arnodt gave 'Miller (39 to settle.
He felt he could not get bail for $3,000, so
he conclnded to skip. They kept on sitting
in his house for two 'hours, and alter that
Doyle went all over the premises.
Mrs. Arnodt corroborated her husband's
evidence, adding that Gallagher told her
she was prosecuted by the Commonwealth.
She did not know who or what the Common
Victor Miller, the next witness, testified
that Mrs. Arnodt gave him $9 "to go to
'Squire Maneese's office and settle the case,
if possible. He saw defendant Bauder at
the 'Squire's, and, knowing Bauder was
mixed up with the C3se, offered to settle it
with him. Bauder told him everything
could be settled for (25 and 59 costs. They
then went to the back office and he paid
Bander (534. Just then the 'Squire came in
and Bauder gave the 'Squire J9. Bauder
never told him what the fine was for, and at
first he wanted to make it (50, but reduced
it to (25, as "the people were poor." He
never saw any information against the Ar
nodts', hut merely helped them out of kind
ness. He saw Gallagher at Maneese's office.
There was no hearing of the case whatever.
P, Dunn saw Doyle and Gallagher go into
Arnodt's house on the day mentioned.
COKEOrJOEATITE AND CUMtTIiAXIYE.
Mrs. J. Davis, of Forbes street, was next
sworn. She said she had been sued for
selling liquor without license. Defendant
Doyle brought her the warrant, which was
signed by Alderman D. B. Callen, of 309
Beaver avenue, 'Allegheny. She went to
the 'Squire's office a day or two after, with
Doyle, and again shortly afterward. The
second time she went she saw there the
'Squire, defendants Doyle and Bauder and
a lady named Coyle. Before she had a
hearing, Bauder called her aside and told
her he could settle the case. They then
went into the room at the back, and Bauder
said she could get off for (25. The 'Squire
then came in and told her to "shove some
money under the settee," adding that he
"often found money enough there to pay
for his beer." She dropped a dollar unde,r
the settee, and thev went into the front
office. Bauder and Doyle then swore to the
'Squire that they had four witnesses against
her, but could not produce them jut then.
Bauder also swore that she was summoned
on information received by him for selling
liquor illegally. He told her he could not
find it in his heart to send a lady to jail;
so he would let her off for (25. She beard
ot no costs, except what the 'Squire told her
to "drop under the settee."
Asked with regard to what bail she had
tendered for her appearance, it turned! out
that it was "straw," although nominally set
down as (3,000.
NO SLOT IN THIS CASE. ( .
Mrs. Kate Coyle, of 518 Second avenue,
identified Doyle and Bauder, and had been
sued bv him to appear at Alderman Cass
idy's office on Third avenue, and went there
with Doyle. Doyle took her from there to
Lawyer G. E. Moore's, on Fifth avenue,
and from there to Alderman Callen 's. At
Callen s she saw, besides the 'Squire,
Bauder and others. The 'Squire told her
there were five witnesses against her; that
she was arraigned under the Act of '55, and
that it was impossible 'for her to get out of
it. He then told her to plead guilty, and
she'did so. They then informed her that
the fine inflicted was (50 and (8.30 costs.
She paid Calleu (13.30 at the time, and sub
sequently, on her second visit to his office,
paid him the remaining (35. She was not
told to drop any money in the "slot" The
'Squire gave her a receipt in full, which
the produced in court
The next witness, Peter Butterhoff, de
posed that he was sued 'by defendant Ben
der for selling liquor illegally. The war
rant was signed by 'Squire Cassidy, but he
was never brought to Cassidy'a office. He
was taken to 'Squire Doughty's on Penn
avenue to get bail, and while there he set
tled the case with the 'Squire and Bauder.
The 'Squire told Mm to hand over (75, and
he handed over that sum. Didn't know
who got the money subsequently; but was
quite certain that he saw none of it No
witnesses were even alluded to at 'Squire
Doughty's. Witness then produced a
document written by 'Squire Doughty, and
running as follows: ,
A QUEEH DOCUMENT.
L. J. Bender, hereby promise and agree to
make no further charges against Peter
Butterhoff for illegal selling of drink, or for
any other offense, during the period of my
natural lire. Lauba Bender (Sic).

in my office. W. D. Douanrr.
Mrs. Barbara Butterhoff, wife Of the pre
ceding witness, corroborated her husband's
evidence; adding that 'Squire Doughty

house, in person. He told them that the

sworn, and deposed to having worked in
Bander's Agency as a detective. He got a
commission from Bauder about May 15.
The agency had a room at No. 13 Excelsior
building. He saw there, besides Bauder,
Doyle. Doherty. McCall, Brockett. Stoner
and Nagel, all of whom worked in the
game employ. He was paid so much for
every case he succeeded in "getting
through" safely. When an individual waa
"ketched" the cpoils were divided among
the members of the agency who had acted
as witnesses and prosecutors. He met
Bauder at Lawyer Haig's office. Mr. Hajg
was then lawyer for the agency, bat few
been since supplanted by Attorney Moore.
It was witness who swore information
against P. Butterhoff. He swore the in
formation before 'Squire Cassidy, and knew
no more about the affair till the next day,
when 'Squire Doughty sent for him and
made him a present of some money, without
stating what it was for. Doughty said to
Bauder, who was there:
"I want to make something out of this.
Don't settle for a cent less than (50."
ABUSE AND NUDGING.
This all occurred in the back office, while.
Butterhoff was waiting in the front room.
They then went into the front room, and
the 'Squire pretended to abuse witness very
fiercely for suing Butterhoff, nudging him
"all the time with his elbow. Everything
happened after that as Butterhoff had de
posed. After that witness and Doughty went to
'Squire Cassfdy's, where thov met Consta
ble King, who said he wanted a hearing of
the case, as he wished to make some money
on it Doughty had a talk with King, and
gave him (5," saying he had only got (15 al
together. They then adjourned to a saloon,
where Dougbtvjslipped (35 into an envelope
and handed if to witness without King see
ing. Witness then went to the agency of
fice and handed Bauder (25, keeping (10
for himself. Bauder gave Doherty some
money out of the spoils. Witness never
knew that 'Squire Doughty had netted so
big a sum as (75. It he did he'd have
"kicked" and got more for himself. This
was the only case witness was ever employed
in by Bander; but he "knew of other cases''
carried on by the agency. Among these
was that of Mrs; Byrnes, of Penn avenue,
who went straight to her lawyer, Mr. John
son, and got out of the agency's clutches.
Witness mmseu succeeaea in
SPOILING BATJDEE'S PLANS
a short time ago in the case of Maude Bay
mond, of 21 Juliusstreet This was a reput
ed disorderly house, and Bauder and Stoner
started out to levy blackmail there. A
friend of Miss Raymond's got witness to go
to Julius street before Bauder and warn
her to pay no money to Bauder. He did
accordingly; but when he saw Bauder and
Stoner coming he got out by the back door.
The case was afterward discharged by
'Squire Maneese. and witness thinks Bau
der got no money.
Cross-examined by defendant. Bander,
witness admitted that he met Officer Gum
bert on the way to Baymond. He migkt
have offered Gnmbert (50 to get the case
stopped, but didn't remember doing so.
Witness left the agency several days before
he was arrested. He tore up his commis
sion. At this stage Major Montooth applied for
the release of defendant, Dominic Galla
gher! on the ground that no evidence had
been brought forward against him.
Gallagher was then called and sworn.
He was an old Pittsburg citizen, and
had been Alderman in the Eleventh
ward from 1875 to 1880. He was at present
constable to Alderman Maneese. De
fendant Doyle one day asked him to ac
company him to serve a warrant on a man
named Arnodt He showed witness the
warrant, which was quite legal and signed
by Alderman Maneese. They went to Ar
SEKVED THE WARRANT,-'
but Arnodt succeeded in eluding Doyle.
He was never a member of the agency, and
never bad any money transactions with any
of defendants. After some consideration
'Squire Hyndman decided that there was no
evidence implicating Gallagher, and he was
let go free accordingly.
Attorney Stone then applied for defendant
Doherty's release, and Doherty was sworn.
He admitted being one of Bander's agents.
for which he was paid (9 a week and his ex-
fienses. He always considered the agency a
egal one, as a commission signed by Clerk
of Courts -McGunnigle hangs up in the office
in the Excelsior building. Doyle promised
to "learn witness the business," and they
set him to work ferreting out speak-easies,
giving him (5 to pay for drinks. He knew
very little about the money affairs of the
agency. He had seen Bauder pay Lawjer
Moore on two occasions; and once Bauder
sent him with a sealed letter to Bobert Lid
deli, the brewer, who gave him (15. Witness

In John House's case 'Bander sent him
with a letter to Mr. Liddell, who then gave
him (9. This sum Bauder sent to Alderman
Maneese as costs in the House case, but
MANEESE DEFUSED TOTAKE IT,
saying he guessed he'd wait awhile; it was
a bad thing to be in a hurry." Bauder
then put away the cash. When witness
joined the agency he knew of several speak
easies, and ne reported them to Bauder.
Bauder supplied all his agents with note
books.' Witness may have reported a dozen
cases in all. A week or two ago he was to
have been a witness against Mr. Cole, of
South Fortieth street, before Alderman
Lohrznan, bnt he went as musician
on the newsboys' picnic instead.
The case fell through in consequence
of the absence of witness. Witness never
saw Bander after that till he met him in
jail. Witness had received (20 from the
agency in all. Lawyer G. Moore was con
stantly at the office. Witness was sent to
arrest Maude Baymond on Julius street.
He took her to Maneese's, where defendant
Brockett went her bail. Bobert Liddell
had been surety for Bauder when he was
getting his agency licensed. Witness said
the methods of the agency had been to enter
speak-easies, and, on Sunday, regular
saloons, and to ask for drinks. If they got
drink they reported the matter to Bander.
Here the witness' examination concluded
and Mr. Stone again asked for his dis
charge. Mr. Bourke appealed also for the
discharge of defendant Dovle, arguing that
he had not been connected with any con
spiracy. The 'Squire, however, could not
be convinced on this point and held each of
the defendants in (1,000 bail on every
charge, making a total of (6,000 to each

Simon Mathias and A. Mathias, butchers
in Soho, were arrested yesterday for
aggravated assault'and battery and felon

A free fight, it is claimed, ensued, in which
apart was played by cobble-stones, ice
hooks and a revolver. The revolver was
pointed by Simon Mathias, the ice-hooks
used by A. Mathias and the stones were
employed by Kehl. The latter received

Morton contending that an array of cele
brated names would contribute to the success
of the next meeting, and' to the Chairman,
Isaac Washington, and Secretary M. K.
Holland, were added assistants in the per
sons of the Vice Presidents here named: J.
H. Baldwin, W. H. Brown, Wm. Webster,
B. F. Stewart, J. K. Owens and John A.
Martin. These were pilastered by the ap
pointment of Wm. Ash, Sergeant at Arms.
Bev. Clinton made a prayer, and then the
meeting was declared open for business,
which was begun by the reading of the fol

Just leaving here for Pittsburg. HaveY.

Tuesday morning. J. W. Ecnoia.
Mr.'B. F. Stewart then rehearsed the cir
cumstances of Yeldell's or Flemon's arrest,
trial, etc., and asked that his hearers do
what was and ought to be expected of them
discharge the debt of (1,100 owed to the
lawvers. He asked that they appeal to Re
publican white men. Democratic white
men, Prohibitionist white men, appeal to
"the men who steal our dollars; to the men
who administer our laws and can give us
justice or injustice as they see fit" Ap
plause. WANTED A NIGHT LUTE SET.
Mr. Morton moved that at 920 o'clock an
appeal be made to all to come forward with
contributions ranging from (1,000 down.
As it lacked 45 minutes to that time one
man objected to cut-and-dry speeches and
asked that all wno wanted to contribute be
allowed to do so instanter. This in shape
of a motion prevailed, and Mr. Chilton was
placed at the door to receive contributions
irom any one who wanted to leave before
the oratory should cease.
Ber. Clinton next spoke of Lafayette
Hall, the cradle of the Republican party,
spoke of the Flemon case and of the posi
tion ot tne colored man in tne country, ana
reiterated the request of Mr. Stewart to pony
up. Tbe address was received with cheers.
Bev. W. H. Brown, of Beaver Falls,
didn't intend to make a speech, but he was
just as much interested as any other man
and Beaver county is interested also. The
result of the trial had convinced Bev. Brown
that it was not the better class of South
Carolina people that persecuted the black
people, but the white trash, who formed the
patrol that in the days of slavery hunted
slaves. Bev. Brown was almost certain
that he might pledge New BrightoD, Beaver,
Beaver Falls and Beaver county for (100 to
tbe fund to pay the lawyers.
J. H. Baldwin, Esq., hadn't, like Bev.
Drown, read the result of the Flemon trial
in the Sunday papers, but postponed read
ing of it until Monday morning. Mr. Bald
win seemed to thing that prayer naa aone
more than boodle.
Mr. Isaac Morton made a short speech
and then the meeting sang "Hold the Fort"

then proceeded to announce that it would'
cost lust (1.100 to hold th fort Mr. Martin!
worked in a little politics as he went alot'g,
asking the audience not to forget Jack
Nolan ana his $3U at next Jfeoruary s elec
tion. While the collection was being taken a
committee was appointed to meet Flemon at
the depot, put him into a carriage and treat
fim to a reception.
Isaac Morton, announced that he didn't
want to make aVpeecb, but said he would
stand up for Judge Ewlng. even though no
one else did.
i The collection was announced to amount
to (197 27, which drew out the declaration
on the part of many that (200 even must be
gotten of it took all night to get it Milk-,
shake sent a dozen or two people around
with hats, and they finally overlapped th
sum asked for.

Announcements were next in order. Oyie
man said there would be a meeting of the
Colored People's Protective Club at the
Franklin School Hall this evening. Presi
dent Washington announced another meet
ting at the same place on Friday evening.
Bev. Clinton announced that Bev.

next Sunday, and an effort to assist to raise

was made that bv this evening the public
twould be informed of the location of an en

A FAMOUS BLIND TEACHER.
Dr. Campbell Is Rendr ta Talk Willi the
Promoter of tbe Blind Institute Some
Wonderful Bicycle) Trip
Dr. Francis 'L. Campbell, the famous
Principal of the English Boyal Normal
College and Academy of Music for the
Blind, arrived in the city yesterday and
stopped at the Hotel Boyer. On Thursday
he will meet the promoters of the Pittsburg
institution for tha blind, and give them the
benefit of his ripe experience. The Doctor
is a great believer in physical education for
those who can't see, and be is a wonderful
example himself of what the blind can do if
He retired early last evening, not feeling
well, but his son, Guy M. Campbell, talked
for his father. When asked if the doctor
would consent to act as principal for the
Pittsburg school, he replied that was some
thing later on, and was not the object of
their present visit
When they return to England they will
take a party ot blind students on tandem
bicycles to the Paris Exposition. Arrange
ments have been made for the Paris wheel
men to meet them 60 miles outside of the
city and act as an escort
"My father and I," he continued, "have
been all over England and Norway on the
bicycle. We have a machine that will
carry eight people, something I have not
seen in this country, and we often take out
parties of blind students on trips over the
fine 'English roads. Of, course on each
machine we place a sighted man to act as
guide, but the blind must understand the
business, and know when to put on the
brakes, etc., from a given signal.
Blindi people can skate and swim
alone,; because they can tell from
the sounds when they are near the inclosure,
bnt oa a country road the sounds are so
shifting and changing that they couldn't
navigate without a guide. Not long since
we, made the distance from London to
Derby, about 110 miles, in two days. But
the roads are so poor in America that we
couldn't do much with the bicycles here.
By the bicycle I don't mean the average
two-wheeled American machine. Our ma
chines have from four to eight wheels."
A DISTRESSING CASE.
Death of a Girl Who Worked When Hardlr
Able to Stand Up.
Deputy Coroner Donley and Coroner's
Clerk Grant Miller made an investigation
of the death of Helen Isel yesterday after
noon, the developments of which justified
them in placing the 'girl's father under ar
rest, pending the result of the inquest
They learned that the young girl had
been an imbecile and subject to epileptic
fits. About three weeks ago she became ill,
bnt was still compelled to do all the work
about the house, although scarcely able to
hold up her head. Dr. Haworth was called
in Saturday. The doctor' saw she was in a
very serious condition and ordered her im
mediate removal to bed, but it was too late.
The girl complained of ill-treatment sev
eral times to Julius Glassman, who occu
pies the front part of the house. On Friday
she told him that her father had kicked her
twice in the side and once in the stomach,
causing her great pain.
Mr. Glassman says the family were the
filthiest lotof people he ever saw.
Isel is a blacksmith's helper. Mrs. Isel
recently lost an eye and it is said that it
was knocked out about five weeks ago by
her husband who went home one night
drnnk. Becoming angered at his wife he
picked up a lamp and threw it at her, cut
ting her tace and knocking the eye clear ont
of the socket She is also said to be of weak
Doctors Haworth and Guy McCandless
were authorized to hold a post-mortem exam
ination of the remains of the dead girl.

.The Morowood. Coka Works resumed this
morning. Master Workman Kerfoot went
thero on Saturday, hearing that the strikers
were about to go to the Pleasant Unity dis
trict to intimidate the men working where the
scale was reported signed. A large number
had congregated when Kerfoot arrived at
Morewood, and the Master Workman's first
action 'was to get an Interpreter and learn what
they wanted. Tbey stated they wanted Suner
tendent Ramsey to meet then and lien the
scale and post it up and they would go to work.
Ramsey was sent for. and in the presence of
the large assemblage, signed the scale. After
It bad been explained to all. the men agreed to
go to work, which they did this morainzind
everything is running smoothly there. Alter
this an application, signed by about 300 men,
was presented to Master Workman Kerfoot,
asking to be organized as an assembly of the
sub-division nt No. 4, Knights of Labor. The
money for the charter fee and lnitiatlon-fee
accompanied tbo application, and as they re
sumed wore this morning they will be organ
ized as an assembly to night.
Balney's If oyer Works, where the trouble
occurred on Friday, is being guarded by a
force of about 30 armed deputies.
At a meeting ot Brown and Cochran's men at
the Clarissa mines near Vanderbilt, yesterday
they decided that as they had beenworklne
tinder a misunderstanding they wonld work to
day, and they told Master Workman Kerfoot
they would not work after to-day unless the
scale was signed. Messrs. Watchorn and
Costello arrived here again this evening. Sir.
Watchom will proceed to tbe Sewickiey
branch where be Till endeavor to pacify the
Hans who have been causing tbe trouble.
From the latest advices received from the
K. of L. headquarters here this evening it
seems highly probible that Mr. Watchorn will
be successful in bis mission as the agreement
Is getting to be understood.
What follows ccmes from Connellsville:
Quietness has been restored at Moyer Dep
uties are still guarding the works, a repetition
of the outbreak being feared. Tbe scale has
not been signed ytt at these works. Tbe pro
prietor, W. J. Rainty, though willing, refuses
to do so until the Huns become pacified. No
tices have been posted at the works of tha
Cambria Iron Company, saying that tbe scale
will be signed and tbe work resumed in a few
days. The AvondsJe Works owed, by Reid
Bros., will start to-morrow.
Tbe Hungarian strikers' wives, mothers
and daughters are now reported to be the
only threatening element in the coke region,
as per the following" special telegram from
Greensburg last evening:
No demonstration was attempted by the
Hungarians at Hecla to-day. However, tbeir
movements this afternoon were regarded sus
piciously. Twenty additional armed men were
sent to the woks at 5, o'clock this evening by
Sheriff Byers. They are now stationed in front
of tbe works doingguard dnty.andit is thought
no outbreak will occur, at least until work is
resumed, and that may not be for several days,
as the damage done has not yet been repaired.
A fight occurred between the Hungarians at
Mammoth this afternoon, and one ot them re
ceived probably fatal injuries. They are
loungins about their homes to-night and there

Dead and Burled.
A strike is threatened among the men at
Phillips, Nemick & Co.'s Sligo mill, and
should it occur it will have a tendenoy
toward a general strike among other iron
3?he cause of tha trouble Is the old Solar
Iron Works' strike, which is still being
waged, despite the popular belief that the
Amalgamated Association had given it up.
The firm have been making considerable
muck iron for different mills in this city,
and the men have protested against working
it Their objections have never yet come to
an open revolt until the present case came
up. On Saturday night the men in the
Sligo mill decided not to work any more of
the iron which was being run in to them in
large quantities. They requested the mill
committee to inform the Superintendent
that if they were asked to work any more
non-union iron after to-day there would be
a strike. The Superintendent refused to
act in the absence; of Manager Bailey, and
asked the men to defer action until to-day,
when the Manager would be home. They
accordingly did so, and, if a negative an
swer is received, the men say that they will
quit work this evening.
