Waged by Eival Democratic
Factions Last Night.
BOTH SIDES ARE HOPEFUL.
Eesults Will Tell When the Smoke
of War Clears Away.
O'LEARY SAYS SOLID FOE BIGLEB.
The Hardest lighting Was Apparently
Done in the City Wards.
KUMOES OF A POSSIBLE FEEEZE-ODT
The bloodless tattle waged between the
two wings of the Allegheny county Demo
cracy last night was attended with great
good humor, the contestants jocosely allud
ing to each other as "Old Guard" and
"Seashore Delegation," exponents of the
doctrines of the faithful. Each side in
dulged in glittering generalities at a late
hour last night, and definite information
was as rare as civil service reform ideas.
The Democratic primaries were held be
tween the hours of fi and 7 P. m. all over
the county. The whole fight was Bigfer or
anything to beat the ex-Internal Bevenue
Collector, and minor matters were entirely
lost sight of owing to the walk-over which
the mention of K. H. Johnston's name
stood for. Even the composition of the
County Committee was a tame and spiritless
matter. The "Old Guard" announced itself
as out for a "cleansing of the Augeau
stables," as Hon. Timothy O'Leary, Jr.,
concisely expressed it, while the aforesaid
"Augean" stable force headed, by nimble
jfr. William Brennen, fought manfully for
the maintenance of the ground achieved in
The band played v igorously all along the
line, but the main fight was in the Third,
Fourth and Fifth Legislative districts for
the delegates to the State Convention. In
the sections of the city embraced by those
divisions the fun was fast and furious, and
at midnight both sides were claiming every
thing in sight, and more, too.
The First Legislative district will send
two delegates to Harnsburg. It embraces
part of Allegheny City, and no one seemed
to know who was running. The same could
be said of the Second district, also a part of
Allegheny. Patrick Foley, at 11 o'clock,
conceded one delegate in each of the First
and Second districts to the O'Learyites.
The latter, struck by Mr. Foley's mag
nanimity, were yet too modest to abate a
jot or tittle in their claim of all four dele
gates. I (The most blissful uncertainty reigned on
both sides as to the composition of the dele
gations to the State Convention from the
Sixth, Seventh and Eighth districts, the
rural contingent. The Sixth district, con
sisting of all the Southside wards and bor
oughs south of the Monongahela and Ohio
rivers, will elect three delegates to Harris
burg. The Seventh district, consisting of
all the boroughs and townships north of the
Ohio river and westof' the Allegheny, will
also send three good men and true to Har
risburg. Two true-blue representatives of
the principles uf Jufifarson will mingle with
the State Convention, representing the
Eighth district, which consists of allthe
boroughs and townships lying between the
two rivers. Each faction was strenuously
insisting that their slate had pulled through
in the three above districts, but Chairman
"Watson's Monday morning mail will tell
the tale, nor can anything anthoritative be
said until then.
THE REAL BATTLE GEOUHD.
The great fight was fought in the Third,
Fourth and Fifth legislative districts. The
Third district consists of the Second, Third,
Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Eleventh and
Thirteenth wards. At midnight Patrick
Toley joyfully gave it out that Mr. Law
rence Ennis had carried the district single
handed, and that the convention would
nominate the man who would be "Larry's"
running mate atiHarrisburg.
Mr. T. O'Lcary, Jr., thought Mr. Foley
rather optimistic, inasmuch as the "'Old
Guard" figures showed that Messrs. John
Cahill, of the Sixth ward, and "W. J. Cur
ran, of the Seventh ward, had won the
fight The statements do not harmonize,
and neither did the factions during the con
test The Fourth district consists of that justly
far-famed "Bull Run" bailiwick, hard by
the length and breadth of Penn avenue,
embracing the First, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth,
Tenth and Twelfth wards. Mesrs. Foley
and Brennen conceded one of the elected
delegates, David Barry, of the Twelfth
ward, to the O'Leary faction, but "hugged
Matt"CaTanaugh to their bosom as their
delegate. Again came a slight discrepancy
in claims, for Mr. O'Leary positively stated
that Mr. Cavanaugb'was his man, first last'
and all the time, leaving the situation one
decidedly of you-pays-your-money-and-takes-your-choice.
But the culmination of the nrimarv ex
citement befell in the Fifth Legislative
district containing the bulk of Pittsburg
and the Southside. This is where all the
hard work was done, all the blows given
and taken. Mr. Brennen staked h.s
prophetic reputation upon the assertion that
his faction had achieved a glorious victory
and that the delegation to Harrisburg
would be himself from the Fourteenth
ward; Johns Dlllmuth, of the Seventeenth
ward; Michael C. Dwyer, of the Eighteenth
ward; John Pierce, of the Twenty-fourth
ward; William Walls, of the Twenty-seventh
ward, and Patrick Foley, of the
Mr. O'Leary was equally emphatic in his
claim that the following gentlemen would
hold down seats in the Harnsburg conven
tion: Charles Schaefer, Fifteenth ward;
Thomas P. McCulIough, Seventeenth ward;
Joseph A. Weldon, Nineteenth ward;
James A. Clark, Twentieth ward; Frank
Jackson, Twenty-fifth ward, and James
Dolan, Twentv-eighth ward. Knowing
ones say that Mr. Brennan's men had the
votes on the face of the returns in the
Fourth and Fifth districts, but that Mr.
O'Leary's slate will pass unharmed through
the Committee on Contested seats in the
OLD TACTICS EMPLOTED.
Mr. O'Leary himself confirmed the report
that his delegates would be seated, while the
others would jump from the springboard of
fate into the soup of oblivion. He said:
"We have the majority of the votes honestly
cast at the primaries. The Brennenites
have taken occasion to put themselves upon
record as vigorously anti-Bigler. They will
run against a stone wall when they strike a
solid Bigler convention at Harrisburg, and
we will get even with them for some
of the tricks of past years. We
actually believe that a solid Bigler delega
tion will go from Allegheny county, and re
.ceive seats in the convention, abd we are
just starting a fight of extermination. We
will fight them all along the line. X under
stand that Pat Foley wants to be Permanent
Chairman of the county convention, but Mr.
Johnston's Iriends will nip Mr. Foley in the
bud. Our branch of the party has Mr. Big
Jer's interests at heart as also tbo purifica
tion of the party in this county. The county
convention and all other conventions will be
lively, and we will knoek the "Seashore
Mr. Patrick Foley said: "We have an
almost solid delegation, and will assert our
rights at Harrisburg. While I am now
certain that Mr. Bigler will be nominated
for the State Treasurership, the Allegheny
delegation will be on deck to protest against
his non-recognition of the hardworking
hustlers of the party. We will get our
seats at the convention if we have to wade

Two Officers Have a Lively Tussle In Ar
resting One Cojle.
Last night Officer Noble, of Allegheny,
arrested a young man named Coyle at the
corner of Ohio and Sandusky streets on a
charge of disorderly conduct He fought
desperately and Officer Ditmer and Bounds
man Wilson were called to assist The boy
absolutely refused to walk, and laid down
on the street There is no patrol box so
near the lockup, and a prisoner taken in
that vicinity is always walked to the
Mayor's office. The boy fought and yelled
and attracted a large crowd, and as it is
known a crowd is always in sympathy with
a prisoner, it looked a little blue for the ar
The crowd jostled them from side to side,
and made several feints to rescue the
boy, but the officers held .on. to
him. While Officer Noble lav in the gutter
with Coyle on top of him, Wilson tried to
pull the latter off, and a burly colored man
attacked Wilson to make him break his
hold. Wilson let go of the prisoner and hit
the negro, who fell in the street, but before
he could be placed under arrest he broke
away and ran.
Wilson then returned to Noble's assist
ance, and Coyle kicked him in the abdo
men, but he held on to him. Coyle, fighting
and screaming, was finally placed behind
the bars in the lockup. Several witnesses
to the affair were indignant at what they
termed the abuse of the prisoner, while
others said he was only one of a bad crowd.
Officer Wilson became sick and had to go

Nothing but a Visit Behind the Bars Satis
fled Kirs. Devlin.
Yesterday afternoon about 5 o'clock a
woman named Bridget Devlin was arrested
by detectice Murphy, of Allegheny, for cre
ating a disturbance at Goldman's tailor
store, 92 Federal street. Her husband is a
cutter there and she imagined he had not
treated her properly, so called on him and
acted in a boisterous and unseemly manner,
to the disgust of everyone within hearing.
The telephone was useoj in calling the officer
and the patrol wagon for conveying Mrs.
Devlin to the lockup. Deputy Mayor Mc
Kelvy gave her a hearing at 7 o'clock and
fined her $10 and costs.
At the hearing it was found Mrs. Devlin
was the same woman that a warrant had
been issued for on the 20th of July, on a
charge of disorderly conduct, preferred by
her ne'ghbor, Mrs. Hyde, living on Kobiu
son Btreet. She was placed under arrest,
but gave a forfeit of 530 for ber appearance
at a hearing to-morrow. When this was
done she began a long explanation to the
Deputy Mayor of how she was imposed on.
His Honor became very tired, and had to
put Mrs. Devlin out of the office.
About 10 o'clock she appeared at Mr.
Goldman's shop again, and resumed her ac
tions of some hours earlier and called the
proprietor names. In conseqnence she was
arrested for the third time, and placed be
hind the bars for a hearing this morning.

The Trades Council Again Passes
Besolutions of Indignation.
HOT AFTER THE MUSICAL KNIGHTS
The Mass Meeting of Tube Workers Did
A MEETING OK THE CAMPBELL MATTER.
One of the stormiest meetings since the
formation of the new 'Trades Council was
held last evening. A number of lively
speeches were made and resolutions adopted
by the members. One of the latter was a
protest against the organization of the mem
bers oi the Great Western ;Band into the
Knights of Labor. A committee was ap
pointed to do everything in its power to
have the charter of the assembly withdrawn.
Another resolution denounced L. A. 300,
window glass workers, for an alleged attempt
to boycott those who were prosecuting the
contract labor law case against President
There was an unusually large attendance
when President Joseph Evans called the
Council to order. The following delegates
James T. Gallagher, with Benjamin Lan
dan as alternate, from United Bakers' As
sembly No. 7247; Thomas McMaster, from
the Tin, Sheet and Iron Cornice Workers'
Union No. 12, and John Haworth from L.
A. 7190, Knights of Labor.
The committee appointed to visit the Ex
position managers, reported that they had
an interview with President Marvin in re
gard to the employment of the Great West
ern Band. Mr. Marvin stated that he
would give them an early answer. This
was nearly two weeks ago, and nothing has
yet been heard from him as to his intentions.
Whether a boycott will be placed upon the
Exposition or not none of the members
would say, but it is supposed that some of
the members of the Mutual Musical Pro
tective Union will insist upon it on account
of the society hiring alleged non-union men.
XX APPEAL TO POWDEBLY.
In regard to the admission of the musi
cians into the Knights of Labor a protest
was ordered to be sent to General Master
Workman Powderly against granting the
men a charter. The following committee
was appointed to draft resolutions to ac
company the protest; James C. Stewart,
Calvin Wyatt and J. C. Young.
In lieu of a memorial of Labor Bay, it
was decided to have a demonstration on the

members of the Central Trader's Council con

body relative to the foreign glass blowers.
Resolved, That the attempt to use the Gen

two union men, who have simply performed
their duty as citizens, merits the most severe
Resolved, That we do not deem that antag
onism to the officials of L. A 300 is a crime
that merits expulsion through the General
Assembly without even the formality of trial.
Resolved, That the Central Trades Council
pledges itself -to stand by the two men who
have simply performed their duty as citizens
and as members of the body.
After the above had gone through on a
chariot of enthusiasm, the following was

Whereas, The late convention of L A.
300 has been influenced toriass boycott resolu

Resolved. That while we have no desire to
be antagonistic to L A. 300, yet the Trades
Council cannot but hold that the use of the
boycott in the case of these two labor organs
is entirely wrong.
Resolved, That we regret the dangerons
spirit shown in this policy, which aims to sus
pend and expel such members and boycott
such labor papers as have assisted directly or
indirectly the eflorts of the Central Trades
Council to investigate the true conditions
under which 45 foreign glass worxers were
brought to Jeannette in violation, as we be
lieve, of the anti-contract labor law.
Resolved. As the representatives of the
75,000 organized workingmen of Western Penn
sylvania, we deem it our duty to sustain these
journals against any injnry that may result to
them throngh any ill-advised efforts on the
part of the 500 members of L. A. 300 in this city
to carry ont the spirit of these Indefensible

and I think will be. The State militia pro
vides the nucleus of a mighty body
and would soon be expanded into a formida

to have the regular army soldiers so well

"I believe that the army must receive
legislation to place it on a sound footing,
and I think that no doubt President Harri

our soldiery. Harrison is an old soldier.
He knows what the army needs and what it
is composed of. I talked with him before
the election, and he seemed very favorable
to legislation for the army."
"The men have been kept ont of politics,
and the present system should continue.
The legislation should be right to the point,
without political tinkering. If the subject

Swain said: "The large number of deser

They arc men who Wish to go West and
start out in life in somt business or just to
see the country. In time of war.of course,de

but in a time of peace Ike the present, they
only consider desertionibreakinga civil con
"The idea is to makJ the army so that they
will want to stay inj the service. There
should be more uniformity about the
penalty. Different courts in different sec

same penalty always. I The soldiers should
be made satisfied and. discontent stopped
where it crop3 out.
The General said, that Harrison had more
army appointments to fill during his term
than' any of his predecessors. Generals
Hullibird, Benet, Keltcb, MacFelv, and

CHINESE FLOOIJSUFPEREES. -,
A Son of Rev. Sir. Chalfant Helps to Dis
tribute Relief In tne Devastated Dis
tricts A Graphlo Account.
Letters received a few days ago by Bev.
G. W. Chalfant, of the Park Presbyterian
Church, from his son, Her. W. B. Chalfant,
a missionary atChinaufu, China, give inter
esting accounts of the great floods along the
Yellow River or Hoang Ho, which occurred
fast spring, and the'measures of relief. In
the shadow of the recent terrible disaster in
the Conemaugh Valley, the accounts are in
teresting. The first letter is dated MarA 4, and
says: "I returned from distributing famine
relief silver in the Chi Tang district on last
Tuesday. 1 made my headquarters at the
An Chi Mias, where our oldest Christians
liye, stopping with Mr. Li Ts'ang Hal ("Li
ofthe Dark Green Sea"). A listjhad been pre
pared, embracing the more needy persons in 21
villages, Our first step was to deposit the
silver. 2500. in a bank in the market town
of Chu-ti, a mile from Au Chia Miao. The
bank gave us notes payable on demand in
copper cash, and these we distributed. Our
mode of procedure was to enter a village
and identify the names upon the list, in
many cases entering the houses to see for
ourselves. Then, when all was satisfactory,
we gave that village its bill upon the bank
and proceeded to the next village. The
poverty of the people is pitiable. Nearly
every one lives on bran, and the poorer ones
mix it with willow leaves of last year's
"The work is not easy, for the people are
desperate, and 30 taels is only a drop in
the bucket. As we came away from the
town of Chu-ti, after disposing of some
70,000 cash, 35 mix-dollars, a number of
women threw themselves in front of the
barrow and would not let us go on until we
promised to give them some help. By Satur
day night the word had gotten abroad that
w4 had come, and about 300 people, most of
them women, crowded LI Ts ang Hai's gate
begging vociferously. Some of the women
male their way into our very room
and flung themselves upon" their
knels upon the earth, knocking 'their
heads and imploring us to give them money.
Wenad to be verv cautious though, for it
willhot do to begin recklessly to distribute
cash! The only way was to reason with
them or, better still, pay no attention to
themluntil the pressure became too great,
wheriwe would distribute a few thousands
of caii among them and they would give
place to another crowd. Thus for two days
we were almost prisoners In our room.
"Eaily Monday morning we prepared to
go, our money being exhausted. When we
were al ready to start we found the gate of
the court blocked with a dense throng. We
held a hasty council of war which resulted
in our sending out one of the Christians
with some cash to distribute. While this
absorbing process was going on Chiang and
I, by a (skillful flank movement, managed
to get sttrted.
"We helped M6 adults and 367 children,
at the rate of 1,000 cash, CO cents per man
for the former and 500 cash per child.
This does not include the loose cash distrib
uted. "On account of the snow we were com
pelled to keep to the inner bankof the river.
We passed many groups of soldiers at work
strengthening the embankment The
stream is back again the same as ever. I
doubt if they can hold it there, however."
, The second letter is written April 12 from
Chi Tune, another town on the Yellow
river. The writer and a companion named
Bergen had left Chinaufa with about
92,700 in silver. As they passed along they
lund the river rising rapidly, while
svarms of workmen were busy trying to
prtvent the breaking of the levees.
N&r Chi Tung the . country was gen
erally flooded and the people in great
distress. Key. Chalfant writes that he and
his tompaniou distributed 1 cent a day to
each individual in a needy familv. The
monsywas paid through the headman of
each village once a week. He writes: "We
can increase the number to upwards .of 20;
000, and propose to carry on the work until
the yheat harvest, that is, over six months."
In the last letter from Kwo Chia Chuang,
on Afcril 21, Eev. Chalfant writes: "We
haye bow 16 villages on the roll, and expect
to put them on.at the rate of about four or
five per day from this on.

SHE IS AN ACCOMPLISHED LADT.
John A. Wood, the River Operator, Cared
For Her From Childhood.
DESERTED BX HER FATHER, YEARS AGO
Many of the people of the West End will
be surprised to learn this morning that
Miss Millie Wood, the supposed daughter
of John A. Wood, the coal operator, is not
that gentleman's natural daughter, but an
adopted child. The young lady has been
reared by Mr. Wood from infancy, and
even her most intimate associates have sup
posed that she was a member of the family
by blood relation.
Judge Stowe, of the Common Pleas Court,
yesterday entered a decree declaring Millie
Cooper to be the legally adopted child of
John A. Wood and Lydia A. Wood. The
petition on which the decree was based
says that the young lady is the daughter of
English parents, that her father deserted
her mother and came to America and that
the wife followed with the child.
John A. Wood is the head of the big coal
firm of John A. Wood & Son. They are
very large river operators, perhaps the sec
ond or third at this port The mines are
located up the Monongahela river. Mr.
Wood lives in a fine mansion on the summit
of a hill overlooking the West End, right
on the border of Chartiers township. He is
a man of large wealth and refined tastes.
He is one of the old-time Methodists of this
section, and has done much for the Church.
MBS. COOPEB'S TRIALS.
Over 15 years ago Mrs. Cooper came to
this city from England, seeking her hus
band. She had three small children, all
girls, then about 2, 4 and 6 years old.
Whether she found her husband or not
could not be learned, but it is stated that
they could not agree, and she could not live
with him. Mrs. Cooper for some time
did household work in various families
in the West End. She seemed to be in
every way an exemplary woman, and her
three girls were bright and pretty children.
Mr. and Mrs. Wood at that time had a
large family of their own. They have eight
children living now, the youngest being" 14
years old. Theydecided to tak"e Millie, the
youngest girl, and raise her as a member of
their family. Sbe was then 2 years old,
and she is now 18. Her next older sister
was adopted by John A. Wood's oldest son,
Samuel L. Wood, who had then been mar
ried abour two years. The eldest sister is
living with an excellent family in New
ADOPTED I1T PACT LONG AGO.
Miss Millie bore the Wood name,and was
treated in every way like the other members
of the family. She was given a good edu
cation, and grew to be a beautiful young
lady. She developed a decided taste for
painting, and the Wood residence is full ot
oil paintings and other art work well exe
cuted by her.
Mr. wood did not care to sav anything
about the present abode of either Sir. or
Mrs. Cooper. The latter has brothers who
are in business in Baltimore. Neither
would he say why she had not been formally
adopted earlier. Her next sister has been,
legally adopted by Mr. S. L. Wood, but
that formality has not yet been performed
for the eldest sister in New fork.
While Mr. Wood further declined to say
why the adoption had been perfected at this
time, it was learned that the youug lady has
legally taken the name of Wbod so that she
may De in a position to change it for still
another name in afewweeks. Who the fortu
nate young man is the people ot the WestEnd
do not know, but there is every reason to, be
lieve that He is fully worthy to become the
son-in-law of John A. Wood and the hus
band of as estimable a young lady as Miss
Millie is said to be. The marriage will
probably occur in six weeks.
