Chief Brown Tests Their Agility by
Striking the Fire Gong
AKD TIMING THEIR MOVEMENTS.
He Thought Some Were a Little Blow, hut
the Boys Protested
AGAIKSr THU FAIRNESS OP THE TEST
One day last week Chief Brown, of the
Department of Public Safety, made a tour
of the engine houses iu the First district of
the city, and, without giving the men any
intimation of his intentions, had the alarm
gong sounded in each house he visited for
the purpose of showing how quick the fire
men could get the horses out, hitch up and
get ready to go out for a fire. The gongs
were sounded, and the men, thinking it was
a bona fide alarm of fire, responded.
After they had gotten in their
places, ready to go out, the Chief
informed tbem why they had been
called out He repeated this inspection at
several engine houses, but, while he did not
keep watch on the time consumed, thought
the men were a little slower than they
should be. In order to find ont just how
much time it took for the companies to get
out to a fire, he instructed one of bis assist
ant superintendents to repeat the inspection
in the same manner as he had done, and
learn accurately the number of seconds con
sumed by each company.
The Assistant Superintendent took a stop
watch with him, and made the test yester
day. He visited engine houses Nos. 1, 2, 3,
4, 5, 7, 13 and 15 and truck A, giving them
each a trial, and embodied the result in a
report to Chief Brown lost evening. As in
the first test, the men had no warning of
what was coming. The Assistant Chief
walked into the engine house, conversed
with the men, who were lounging about in
various parts of the building, and then,
calling the captain of the company to one
side, instructed him to go and strike the
HOW THE TEST WORKED.
The mem tumbled into their places in
their usual fashion. The horses were
loosened by the automatic machinery and
rushed out to be hitched up to the engines
and hose carriages, the drivers, hosemen
and other firemen jumped into their re
spective places on the apparatus, and when
they were ready to start lor the supposed
fire were told it was only a test.
The firemen iu every case protested at
being taken unawares, and asked to have
the test repeated, as they thought they
could do better, but the Assistant Chief
firmly refused, and told them their record
was made. If they wanted to do better
they must make their record in going out
on real alarms.
In his report to the Chief of
the department the Assistant
Superintendent reports the actual time,
taken on a reliable stop-watch, as follows:
Engine Company 2fo. 1, 14J4 seconds; No.
2. 21 seconds; No. 3, 24 seconds; No. 4, 2l
seconds; No. 5, 13 seconds; No. 7, 19 sec
onds; No. 13, 29 seconds; No. 15, 31 sec
onds; Truck A, 21 seconds.
ane report states that the reason thatNos.
1, 5 and 7 make so much quicker time than
the others Is that they have double houses
and the horses have only half the distance
to run to their places that they have in the
Jong, single houses. Another feature
pointed out is that in Companies 1 and 15
harness snaps of au old pattern are in use,
and cause a loss of time in hitching.
ANOTHER TEST MADE.
After making the above trials the horses
were unhitched, unharnessed and left stand
ing in their places at the poles, and another
test was made to see how quickly they
could be hitched up, ready to go out. from
that position. No. 1 took 5 seconds; No. 2.
Cyi seconds. No. 3, 6 seconds; No. 4, 6J
seconds; No. 5, 4 seconds; No. 7, 7 seconds;
No. 13, tji seconds; No. 15, 7 seionds.
In concluding his report the Assistant
Superintendent states that much time is
lost on account of the slowness of the horses.
This defect is being remedied by a new ap
paratus which will soon be placed in the
stall of each horse, consisting of a revolving
whip which drops the instant the gong
sounds, and strikes each horse a smart blow
before be leaves his stall. As soon as these
have been put in place it is expected that
the companies can come nearer to getting
out on the record time, 11 seconds. There
is one horse in No. 13,Tiowever, where the
revolving whip is already in use, that pays
no attention to the lash, and walks out to
his place as leisurely as if going out for ex
ercise. The firemen were considerably stirred up
over the unexpected test last night, and in
several ot the engine houses the captains
made tests of their own after the Assistant
Superintendent left, with much better re
suits, and a reduction in the time con
sumed. It is sate to say that the next time
an official test is made there will be an im
provement in the time.
Grand Army aien Are Getting Ready to Go
to Gettysburg The B. & O. Offers Tiro
Esiui to ike Veterans.
"People imagine," said Division Passen
ger Agent Smith, of the B. & O., yesterday,
"that with the close of the summer resorts
the excursion business ends for the year,
but this is a great mistake. The B. & O.
will run excursions to Gettysburg for Penn
sylvania Day, to Cumberland, where the
Centennial of Allegheny county Maryland,
will be celebrated on the 23d, 24th and
25th of September; to Baltimore
for the Maryland Exposition, which will be
held in September, and to Washington for
the grand national conclave of Knight
Templars.October 9. I think a larger crowd
will go to Washington to attend the con
clave from Pittsburg than went to see Har
rison inaugurated. I Lave already made
contracts for 16 Pnllman cars."
Pennsylvania Day will be celebrated on
the 11th and 12th of next month. From
the activity displayed among the old sol
diers nearly every one of them will go lrom
Pittsburg. They are filling ont the required
blanks and securing orders for transporta
tion on either road. One fare for the round
trip has been arranged.
By building a short branch between Penn
Mar and Orrtanna, the Baltimore and Ohio
possesses the shortest line to Gettysburg,
by way of Hagerstown and Shenandoah
Junction on the West Maryland road, run
ning through Antietam, Charlestown and
other historical places. Mr. Smith said
yesterday that the road would sell two sets
of tickets, one by the route pointed out or
bv way of Washington and Baltimore.
Knapp s Battery, making about CO people
with members' families, will go by the Bal
timore and Ohio. The Pennsylvania also
is hustling ipr their share of the busi
ness. The B. & O. will make a 1-cent rate to
Cumberland from this citvand intermediate
points for the Centennial of Allegheny
county, Md. A large crowd of Pittsburgers
are expected to attend.
The B. & O. will run the last excursion
of the season from Pittsburg to Atlantic
City next Thursday. There is a big de
mand for tickets.

CARLISLE, August 23. William Bloser,
a man aged 25 years, living in West Penns

in King's dam, on the Cono'dogulnet, some
time yesterday evening. He went fishing
yesterday morning and did not return. A

covered about noon to-day. As he was sub
ject to tailing fits the supposition is that
that was the cause of the drowning.
HUSBANDS FOB TWO.
A Queer Scene on Board the fctenmer Switz
erland The B!e Dinner Bell Sum
mons AH Bands to a
Philadelphia, August 23. The eight
taps by which 4 o'clock was announced upon
the bell of the Bed Star steamship Switzer
land as she lay in the dock yesterday after
noon had hardly died away when the sharp
twang of the dinner gong reverberated
through the ship, and the steward marched
through the vessel fore and aft, crying:
"Come to the weddingsl Come to the wed
dings! Come on, everybody! Two wed
dings in the second cabin! There was a
rush of stewards and stewardesses, officers
and crew and the few straggling passengers
who had not yet left the ship, and the cabin
was crowded when Magistrate Iiadner tied
a double nuptial knot and made husbands
and wives ot two immigrant couples.
Among the 210 immigrants wno were
shipped at Antwerp by the Switzerland were
two young girls who attracted the attention
of the stewardess, and at her instance the
Immigration Inspectors informed them that
they would not be permitted to land unless
they should first find husbands-for them
selves. The girls were Maria Mayer, who
came from Elberfeld, Germany, and Fauline
Volz, whose home was in Friedburtr, Ger
many. Among the steerage passengers
was also Frederick Behle, who
came from the home of Miss Mayer
and was bound for Detroit, which was
the destination of that young woman.
Upon finding that she was refused a land
ing Behle stepped forward and informed
the Immigration Inspectors that he was a
friend of Miss Mayer and had come with
her from her home. He said that he was
willing to marry the girl. Miss Yolz was
quickly rescued from her embarrassing po
sition in a quite similar manner, .Peter
Michael, a shoemaker, who lives at 39
Washington avenue, presented himself on
board the Switzerland, and said he had
come to claim Miss Yolz as his wife. He
came from her native place to New York a
lew weeks ago.
With this solution of the trouble in sight
Immigration Inspector John J.-S. Sogers
went up to Clerk Bird, of the Orphans'
Court, and procured a pair of marriage
licenses. When he returned to the steam
ship Magistrate Ladner was summoned, the
double marriage ceremony was performed,
and the two couples left the ship rejoicing.

IEFICIAL TXXEOBAU TO THE CISPATCH.l
Lancaster, August 23. The Grand
Lodge Knights of Pythias, having con
cluded their labors on the Grand Lodge
constitution, to-day considered the constitu
tion of subordinate lodges. The following
sections were adopted as to membership: No
lodge shall initiate into the mysteries of the
order any person who is. not a white male,
over 21 years of age, and a believer in the
Supreme Creator and Preserver of the uni
verse, of good moral character, and free
from mental or bodily infirmity, and able to
support himself and family. An applicant
over 50 years of age, or maimed, shall
not be initiated unless a dispensation
for that purpose be first obtained from the
Grand Chancellor or the Grand Lodge.
The following is the section as to death
benefits: Funeral benefits shall not be paid
in case of a member who was taken sick or
otherwise disabled when in arrears to the
lodge to the amount of 13 weeks' dues and
died of that sickness or disability, except
the arrears at the time of death were re
duced to less than 13 weeks' dues, and then
20 only shall be paid. The Grand Lodge
constitution was adopted by a vote of 303
ayes to 31 nays, and that of subordinate
lodges by a vote of 289 ayes to 32 nays.
The Committee on Law recommend each
lodge to be careful in the imposition of fines
for non-attendance at funerals or at failure
to act as nurses.

bustles and other personal ornaments con
trary to the spirit of that church.

IN COME THE CROWDS!
OUT CO THE GOODS!
Our great Building and Enlarging Sale is assuming more gigantic
proportions every day. The immense business we have done so far
during this, the dullest month in the year, has surprised even ourselves.
When one considers for a moment that we are crowded for room by the
builders of the new addition to our building and otherwise much handi
capped by the workmen engaged in making the proposed alterations and
improvements, the above fact is nothing short of remarkable. The peo
pie of Pittsburg and vicinity have become thoroughly assured that we
"COMPELLED TO SELL"
and sqem to fully appreciate what it means. It means the total closing'
out of our large stock of seasonable goods. It means that we are re-
ducing and marking down goods to prices so low that you can't help
buying them. It means such bargains as Pittsburg is not likely to see
continue to draw hundreds -of customers. This will hardly surp rise you
however, if you but consider that these suits are made of Wales of dif-'
ferent widths, Diagonals, Worsteds, etc., Cassimeres in solid colors -and
mixtures, Stripes, Checks, Plaids and a liberal number of choice con
fined designs and effects that are new, tasty, and handsome. They come
in sacks, frocks, cutaways, professional shapes, etc., and're carved out
in the newest styles.
Of course you can buy suits especially during the quiet month of
August for $7 50 (less, for that matter), but not such suits as these.
Look at the suits that'll be shown you in any other store in this city for
$9, jio and 12. Examine 'em closely, fairly, honestly and look over
ours, and we'll leave it to you if the suits shown by us are not better in
are still the talk of the town the, male portion of tbe town, at least.
And no wonder! Why there is not a pair of pants on our $1 50 counter
that can be bought elsewhere for less than $3. These Pants consist of
Cassimeres, Cheviots, Worsteds, Corkscrews, Diagonals, Serges, etc.,
and they come in such popular and stylish patterns as light. and dark
Scotch plaids of large and small design, checks, stripes, mixtures, plain
shades, etc. The best dresser in the city need not be ashamed of wear
ing these 1 50 Pants. Get a pair.
