THE PITTSBURG- J5ISPATCH, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 1889.
The County Treats All the Convicts of
the Workhouse to a Bide,
AT A COST OF $1,200 EVERY YEAE.
Bat ly an Amicable Arrangement Be
tween the Two Cities,
THE EAILEOAD FAKES AEE CHEAPENED
The conveyance of prisoners to the work
house from the cities of Pittsburg and Alle
gheny annually costs the county $600, and
it is estimated by Warden Warner that it
cost two-thirds as much to pay the fares
back to the city of those who are discharged.
During 1888 the "West Penn Railroad Com
pany received probably $1,200 from the
workhouse passenger traffic, and only about
I f60 from the traffic to and from the Alle
l gheny City Poor Home, which is also lo
cated at Claremont
By an amicable arrangement between the
county and city authorities a Earing of at
least $500 pervear has been effected in these
passenger fares. The expense of conveying
prisoners to the workhouse is Fustained by
(he county. Under the law, an officer was
allowed 90 cents for each prisoner taken to
that institution. As it frequently happens
that one officer conveys half a dozen pris
oners, he. would be able to clear a nice sum
every day at the county's expense. "When
the workhouse was opened, in 1870, County
Controller Henry Lambert, who was the pre
decessor of "Warden Henry Warner in the
Controller's office, made an amicable ar
rangement with the Mayors of Pittsburg and
Allegheny, by which the Controller pur
chased and furnished to the officers of the
two cities what are called "family trip
books," good either way between Alltgheny
City and Claremont over the West Penn
road. Each of these books contains coupons
for 50 rides, and cost $8 70. As the fare one
way is 27 cents, a saving is made of $4 80 on
every 50 trips. There is an actual saving, as
explained by Warden Warner, even greater
nOW IT IS SAVED.
For instance, yesterday sixteen prisoners
were taken from the city to the workhouse,
in charge of only three officers. Under the
law these three officers would receive $14 40
from the, county for their prisoners. The
actual expense of the officers, by purchasing
one-way tickets for their prisoners and
round-trip tickets for themselves, would be
only $5 64. Under the system in vogue. 22
coupons required for yesterday's trip cost
the county only $3 83, making a saving of
$10 57 on yesterday's;work alone.
In 1883 Pittsburg sent 2,508 prisoners to
the workhouse, Allegheny City 368, and the
county outside of the city sent 139. From
other counties 120 pay prisoners were re
ceived. For four years there has been a
constant and decided decrease in the num
ber of men and women sent to Claremont
from the two cities. For this decrease War
den Warner said that he was wholly unable
to account. He considers it to be merely
the ebb and flaw discernible in the statistics
of nearly every penal institution in the
county. The daily average of prisoners
during 1588 was 504. Yesterday there were
618 inmates, of whom 88 were women
The Warden pays the fare of all female
prisoners discharged and desiring to return
to the city. The fares of many male
prisoners are paid, according to the dis
cretion of the Warden. If the weather is
:--lement, or If the prisoner be old. lame or
his fare is paid. During the summer
s two-thirds of the male prisoners dis
' walk to the city. Sometimes an
-odied prisoner has been a good and
.aUe worker during his confinement,
fUf tljea his fare is paid as a matter of re
"Many of the prisoners soon return," Mr.
Warner says. "They are unfitted lor any
other work, and seem to be unable to earn a
living. Not a few prefer to live at the
workhouse. They are like fish out of water
when they are away from here. I imagine
that you cannot guess how many times some
of our inmates have been here. One man is
serving his fifty-filth term."
THREE YEARS TRANSPORTATION.
The ticket books for persons sent to the
Allegheny City Poor Home, at Claremont,
are purchased by Major Hunker, of the Al
legheny Board of Charities. The item is
not a large one, as only 165 persons were
sent to the Poor House last year. Nearly
the same number of persons were discharged
from the institution, and they were likewise
furnished tickets back to the city.

sent to the workhouse during the past three

OP TWO C0L0ES.
Pecnllarliy in the Eyes of a Prisoner Up
nt (lie Workbome.
John Manning, the man who was sent to
the workhouse on July 29, for his assault on
Rev. Father Schaeper, in St. Philomena's
Church, is employed in the garden at the
workhouse. He is a native of France, 49
years old, and a farmer and gardener by
profession. The attendants at tbe work
house, Warden Warner says, consider the
man slightly insaue. A reporter had a talk
with Manning yesterdav, and asked him to
say why he had assaulted the priest. The
"He be rubbing me down all the while.
He send people after me everv night. I
thought I rub him down."
This was all that could be gotten out of
the fellow. He looks and talks like an
insane man, but is said to be a good farmer.
His left eye is dark brown and his right eye
a light gray.
HE WAS WEIGHTED- DOWtf.
Why Win. StlrslHz Very Nearly Drowned
in the River.
The man who was overcome while bring
ing a drowning boy out of the Monongahela
river at the Tenth street bridge Monday
was Wm. Stieglitz instead of Ued Young,
as first reported. When he jumped into tbe
water Mr. Stieglitz had three pounds of
tacks and a heavy hammer in the pockets of
his coat, and it was this weight that helped
to tire him. He was slightly injured in
running down the bank, but was able to be
about yesterday. This is the third person
he has rescued.
The Eighth Street Explosion.
Coroner McDowell resumed the inquest
on the bodies of John O'Connor, John
Miller and John Grunier, the three men
killed August 9 by the Eighth street ex
plosion. Tne following verdict was re
turned: The deceased came, to their deaths on Au
gust 9. while testing the pipe main :ine by
means of air, and tbo deadcap coming off,
through tbe breaking of a bolt, the concussion
of the air causing the injuries wblcb proved
fatal, and that from all tbe evidence the Jury
found that every possible precaution had been
taken by tbe contractors and workmen, and
that their deatbs were accidental and unavoid

LIVE EXPOSITION HEWS.
Power Hall Will Be Finished In Time
What It Going on In Main Ball A
Splendid Art Gallery.
A stroll to the vicinity of the Exposition
buildings discloses a scene of great activity.
A small army of workmen is working vig
orously, and with bright prospects of get
ting things into shape by this day two
weeks. Power Hall, seen from a distance,
is very delusive to the eyesight. It looks
small as seen from the Sixth street bridge,
owing to its skeleton frame. As a matter
of fact, it is 300 feet long and 112 feet wide.
Thereof is nearly completed, and the task
of covering the frame is being rushed. The
tremendously heavy oak flooring is nearly
all dewj, and the turrets at each corner are
being marked in rapidly. The foundations
for the two engines have been finished, also
tbe foundation for a water tank 21x42 feet.
The restaurant, 114x72 feet in size, is
nearly completed. It is built on piles and
projects over the river. A promenade 10
feet wide runs the entire length of the
building overhanging the river. Tickets to
meals will include the view from the river.
It may not be as grand as the view from the
Eiffel Tower Bestaurant,out it will be pretty
well for Pittsburg. The building; will be
completed this week. Murphy & Hamilton
have 108 men working 12 hours a dav, and
say that tbey have things in a forward con
dition. The floor space will be ready for
the exhibitors next week. The "tin-plate"
annex at the west end of the main building
will be finished this week. Some enterpris
ing chap has received permission to erect a
large living horse on the open space between
the end ot the 'building and the Union
Main building is now in the hands of the
exhibitors. The huge edifice has been
painted a warm red throughout. The pil
lars have been picked out in red and light
brown, and look quite artistic The gal
leries are handsomely painted. Measure
ments were taken yesterday for the decora
tion of the roof timbers. Their ungainly
outlines will be concealed by red, white and
blue bunting. Nearly all the platforms are
constructed by the exhibitors, and from the
outside all the approaches and sidewalks are
being placed in order. The new and im
proved turnstiles, eight in all, four for each
entrance, have arrived and are ready to be
set up. They are mostly of iron, and are
considerable of an improvement upon the
old Centennial turnstiles. About the only
piece of carpentry work now in the building
erected by exhibitors is the handsome pagoda
of S. S. Marvin & Co. This stands on the
gallery fronting the main entrance. It will
be colored black, white and gilt. The band
stand and the sounding board at the back
are completed. The band stand is directly
over the main entrance.
The art gallery is one of the finest ever
erected in America. There are six large
chambers with labyriuthian entrances so
contrived that no light enters except from
the apertures at the top, which are covered
with white muslin, the walls being built so
as to contract nearly half at the top. The
prevailing color is dark red, and the effect
is to Becure a "dim religious light." jnst
the thing for the proper display of pictures.
These latter were moved in yesterday( and
the job of hanging will be immediately
commenced by Artist Clarence Johns. The
art gallery certainly gives evidence of care
in its preparation. The system of foot
lights for each row of pictures will be very
The Westinghouse people have finished
the job of changing all the incandescent
lights from 16 to 25 candle power. There
are now 864 incandescent and 22 arc lights
in the building A number of other special
display lights are to be put in.
Union men are watching the interior of
main building very closely. Two car
penters at work yesterday on a stand for a
music firm were notified to quit; and lost no
time in getting out. No non-union man
will be allowed to strike a lick in the build
ing, for Murphy & Hamilton's force stands
ready to quit at a moment's notice.
Heinz, the pickle man. will have a
unique display. He has the entire east wall
of the building, and erected a scaffold yes
terdav. To-day a huge canvas will be
stretched, covering nearly the entire space.
Painters will cover the''canvas'with au fm-H
mense view of Mr. Heinz pickle garden.
At the bottom of this view will be a space
20 feet high and the width .of the dead wall,
with figures worked out in pickle bottles.
It will be the greatest pickle exhibit ever
made in this country.
It is a singular thing, but tbe first exhibit
Sut in permanent position in the main
uilding is the old ''Vigilant" fire engine,
with its old leather hose and queer brass'in
scriptlon marked "Instituted in 1811."
The Exposition Society managers held
their regular meeting yesterday afternoon.
The business transacted was principally of
a routine character. The contracts for
lighting tbe building during the Exposi
tion were approved. The cost will be about
Although the work at the Exposition
grounds looks discouraging to outsiders,
tbe managers still have no fear of it not be
ing ready for the opening. Manager
Johnston said yesterday it would not be
any fault of his if the work is not done. He
has been insisting on the work being pushed
night and day.
From Homestead to Braddaek.
Yesterday morning the Braddock and
Homestead Steel Railway Company were
granted a charter at the State Department,
Harrisburg. The line of railway is as fol
lows: From the Mifflin township road, Al
legheny county, some 200 feet east of Home
stead; thence to City Farm street, and by
Sixth avenue and Hayes to Eighth avenue,
from which it goes by township road to the
corner of Calhoun plan of lots, returning by
the same route. The capital stock is $20,000

work of raising her, but being in a very bad
position it is expected, she will occasion
some trouble. The loss is put at 515.000.

TO-DAY'S MPORTAHT MEETING.
Ohio and Bearer Dam and
Scheme Goes Booming.
BIG IHPfiOTEMENTS ON MOJiONGAHELA
The meeting of all river coal operators
and steamboatmen in the office of John A.
Wood & Sons, 86 Water street, this after
noon at 2 o'clock means more than would
at first appear to those outside of the circle.
Ostensibly they are to meet to elect dele
gates to the Western Waterway Convention,
to be held in Cincinnati on September 4.
Heretofore such a meeting in regard to
the annual convention has not created much
of an excitement among the rivermen; now
they are all looking forward to the conven
tion as the most important step toward re
trieving the waning- prestige of the river
As a a gentleman in John A. Wood's
office said yesterday, business on the river
has continued to be very dull, and the
rivermen and coal operators say something
must be done. The one thing that will
bring back the old days and enliven river
trade, in their opinion is the proposed sys
tem of dams to Beaver on the Ohio, and
the canal thence to the lakes.
Capt. I. N. Bunton, 'of Jos. Walton Ss
Co., said yesterday that the delegates who
will be sent to the convention from Pitts
burg will advocate strongly the dam and
canal scheme above all other improve
ments on the Ohio, and would do all possi
ble to have the projecct carried through.
PITTSBURG'S BIO DELEGATION.
Sixteen delegates, at least, will be ap
pointed to-day to go the convention. Besides
the dam and 'canal project, they will look
after the proper location of a couple of new
bridges at Wheeling and Louisville, and
also a general agreement as to the improve
ments necessary, but the accomplishment of
the proposed canal project will be the chief
topic brought by the members of this sec
tion before the convention. The end to be
achieved is to show the feasibility ot the
project, and the great results to commerce
that would accrue therefrom.
Governor Beaver has already written the
rivermen here, allowing them to name men
for the commission authorized by the Legis
lature to look up the canal and dam project
and the men will be selected soon.
The decrease in the Southern coal trade
is attributed by some as due to the cheap
ness of mining the Alabama and Tennessee
coal and other mines South. The coal is
far inferior, but is used on account of its
Captain Joseph Walton said that in
many of the mines convicts are employed,
costing little more than their "keep."
The convention in September will repre
sent all the steamboatmen of tbe Mississippi,
Ohio and their tributaries withthe interests
of navigation involved by all.
A MONONGAHELA TRItrMPH.
Dam No. 8, on the Monongahela river, is
expected to be completed by December 1.
This dam will be of immense importance to
Morcantown. W. "Va.. andisot considerable
interest to this neighborhood also, especially
to the river packet company. When finished
a Morgantowner can take a boat in the even
ing and come to this city by morning, rest
ing during the night in his stateroom as
comfortably as at home, and be in this city
in the morning refreshed and ready - for
business Colonel Merrill is authority for
the statement that the dam will be finished
The bnilding of this dam affords another
illustration of how-not-to-do-it method of
Government building. The lock has been fin
ished for quite awhile, and at times portions
of the work on the dam have-been built, but
successive freshets not only stopped work
but carried much away that had been done.
This delay has also been aggravated by the
Government method of mating appropria
tions which have been the cause'ot the loss
of much of the work. When the appropria
tion is exhausted work ceases.
President M. K. Moorhead, of the Mo
nongahela Navigation Company, also states
that West Virginia influence has stood in
the way of the prosperity of the section
about Morgantown. Tbe navigation com
pany owns dam No. 7, and No. 8 was in
tended to have been built before No. 9, but
West Virginia thought hest to have No. 9
built before No. 8, thinking the building of
the former would expedite that of the latter.
ME. MOOKHEAD'S POINT.
Mr. Moorhea'd makes a point on the mat
ter in the controversy between his company
and the Government. He says that dam
No. 7 has already cost $236,000 and is not
completed, while the Government has ap
pealed from the award of $207,000 for dam
No. 8, which is lower than No. 7, being
further down the river. It seems that the
Monongahela Navigation Company will
likely go on collecting tolls for four'or five
years yet in consequence of the appeal, as it
is thought that much time will be consumed
before the legal entanglement is straight
ened. GRAND AESIT EXCURSIONS

THE BIG CONSPIRACY.
Still Another Arrest A Third Alderman Be
Ids Looked For Why the Other Class of
Blackmailing la Not Prosecuted.
Alderman Hyndman was asked last even
ing if any information had been made be
fore him by Police Inspector Whitehouse in
a new set of blackmailing cases, said to
center in the Lawrenceville district. He
replied that no information had been made
as yet The cases are said to involve the
proprietors of questionable resorts other
From another official it is learned, how
ever, that a number of cases have been
brought to the attention of the police, but
they are of such a nature as to render it
impossible to secure evidence. Married men
have committed indiscretions which have
been made the basis oi charges against
them. Dreading publicity, the men hsve
invariably settled in the usual back-room
fashion in a certain Alderman's office.
The nature of the cases absolutely preclude
the possibility of securing evidence, as few
men will consent to make an information
at the risk of losing their own characters.
So that while the police have more than a
suspicion as to the existence of a widespread
scheme of blackmailing, specific evidence
is entirely out of their reach. The Depart
ment of Public Safety has been long cog
nizant of the condition of affairs in Law
renceville, but has been unable to move in
Frank McCall, brother of "Keddy" Mc
Call, who was arrested -yesterday morning
as he was going from his home on the
Twenty-eighth street hill to work in Ham
ilton's glasshouse, was removed from the
Twelfth to the Nineteenth ward station by
order of Inspector Whitehouse yesterday
afternoon. He is alleged to have been one
of the Bauder gang, and is charged with
conspiracy before Magistrate Hyndman.
The specific charge against him is that he
and two others entered a charge of con
ducting a speak-easy against David Turner,
of Troy Hill, and afterward settled the case
for $67. He will be kept there until Mon
day afternoon at 3 o'clock, when Aldermen
Callen and Doughty, James McCall and
