DB. HAMMOND EESIGNED
Because He Preferred Both a Pipe
and His Personal Liberty
TO SDEVEILLAKCB AND SALARI.,
His Great TTork in Building the Kew
& flhnrMi PATintAfl Tar Xano-ht.
HE HAS THREE CALLS ELSEWHERE
Bev. E.H. Hammond, pastor of the Shady
Avenue Baptist Church, has resigned front
Iris pastorate under circumstances quite
without precedent in the history of church
circles ot this city. It appears that the
reverend gentleman has been caught
smoking. He had the temerity to follow
the distinguished example ot Sir "Walter
Baleigh and other more recent devotees of
"the weed," and certain members of the
congregation took exception to Mr. Ham
mond's tastes, and that fact coming to the
ears of the pastor, he promptly severed his
connection with the church.
Rev. Mr. Hammond was neither at his
home nor his study last evening, but alter
some investigation his intimate friend, Dr.
"Williams, of Pcnn and Hiland avenues,
consented to give the facts in the matter.
"Dr. Hammond has been treated very
discourteously by a faction ii his congrega
tion. He has been pastor of the Shady
Avenue Baptist Church for more than three
years, during which time his energetic min
istrations hare done wonders in building up
the congregation. A new and handsome
church has been erected and partially fin
ished at a cost of over 525,000, and it is a
matter of lact that over one-third of the
money was raised by Dr. Hammond among
Lis influential friends. .
OUTSIDE OF THE CONGBEGATIOX.
"A very small debt incurred in the finish
ing the new building yet remains. Dr.
Hammond is one of the most able of the
Baptist ministry. In the preparation of the
exegesis of a sermon he is unrivaled in his
denomination. He has worked with his
-whole soul for the success of his
church, and has received what his friends
consider a meager salary. During the
last year he refused a call from another
church at precisely double the salary he re
ceived. He is a man ot genial character
and fine mental attainments. I mention
these things in order to emphasize the trivial
nature of the objection raised against him
by certain people in the congregation. Dr.
Hammond had one very grievous fault in
those censorious eyes. He smoked!"
"Did what?" asked the astonished re
"Smoked tobacco, you mean?'
"Yes. He smoked cigars and pipes;
smoked openly and notoriously, thus scan
dalizing his cloth, in the eyes of certain
Pharasaical members of the church."
"He didn't chew?"
"Oh, no. Just smoked. And a lot of old
hens in the congregation were so shocked
by Dr. Hammond's atrocity that they began
talking in church and at the prayer meet
ings. He heard of it, and made up his
mind to preserve his independence by re
signing. He ielt that it was not his
province to remain where any act of his
would jeopardize the spiritual unity of his
flock, whether the malcontents were right
OTHERS DON'T DETEST IT.
"Has Dr. Hammond calls elsewhere?"
"Yes. He has three calls, one to Con
necticut, one to New Jersey, and one to a
large church in Philadelphia. Bnt his ac
tion had no reference to his prospects. He
does not believe that smoking is inconsist
ent with the ministerial proiession, and I
honor him for his assertion of the rights of
k Dr. Hammond's resignation was prepared
on Sunday morning and read to the congre
gation just before communion service. It
was a veritable bombshell, and the congre
gation was so stunned as to be scarcely able
to vote on the acceptance. Dr. Hammond
prefaced his remarks by stating that his
action was for the best interests of the
church, and must be considered irrevocable.
The resignation was reluctantly accepted.
One of the oldest lady members of the
congregation stated last night that "objec
tions had been made to Dr. Hammond be
cause he smelt of tobacco dnring the ad
ministration of the communion."
The members of the church are said to be
on the lookout tor a Baptist minister guar
anteed not to smoke.
SOME FDSSI MISTAKES.
A Day' Experience at the Department of
Yesterday afternoon a man about 60 years
of age called at the Department of Chari
ties and inquired for a dead friend's corpse
he supposed was there. His first question
was, "Where is he?" The clerks of course
did not understand him and asked for an
explanation. He asked if that was not "the
morgue," and was told it was not. He then
Eaid he had seen the sign on the door "the
departed," and thought it was the morgue.
The sign reads: "Office of the Department
A few days before this a lady came into
the office. She wanted toiay her"gas bill."
She was told they could not give her a re
ceipt for it. She seemed a little mystified
and asked if that was not the office of the
"Chartiers Gas Company." She, too, had
read the sign improperly and was shown the
difference between "Chartiers" and "Chari
ties." THE LATE WELTI 31'CCLLOUGII.

RIOT ON THE TRAIN.
Tho Crnb-Tree Guns Try to Run the
Johnstown Accommodation A Fight
Ensurs Many Persons Injured.
A small riot broke out on one of the
Pennsylvania Bailroad trains yesterday af
ternoon, in which a number of persons were
injured and bruised. "Nick" Funk, the
well-known conductor, was cut in the face,
and several passengers were injured.
The train was the Johnstown accommoda
dation, which leaves the Union Station at
4:30. At Greensburg there was a lot of
people waiting to get on board, and among
them was the "Crab Tree gang." They re
side on the Crab Tree branch
road, near George's station. "When
around they generally run thing.
They got on board, the conductor says, and,
being drunk, their leader, Joe McCorniack,
immediately got into a fisht with a passen
ger. The former is a large man, being
nearly six feet high and weighs about 200
pounds. His large stature gives him room
among ordinary men, and on the train he is
alleged to have" challenged any lour present
to come and do battle with him. Nobody
appeared willing to accept the offer, and to
make things interesting McCormack, it is
alleged, struck an inoffensive paisenger.
This started a fight, in which about 15
passengers, the train crew and McCormack's
gang were interested. One of the latter,
named Johns, was gashed abont the head
and severely injured. Conductor Funk re
ceived a painful cut above the eye, where
one ot the toughs struck him.
"When the train reached Latrobe the pas
sengers in the car and the train crew, rose
up as one man and threw the gang from the
train. Warrants will be sworn out for

yesterday in the office. Ninth street bridge.
The stock ot the company is 3,000 shares,
which are worth, at par, S50 per share. The

ant Valley Passenger Railway Company
was 5100 per share. That corporation has
purchased nearly 3,000 shares. At the

THE EX-LIQUOR DEALERS.
They Expert Tlint Judge- White Will Grant
Samuel Bing, chairman of the Ex-Liquor
Dealers' Committee, said yesterday, with
reference to the petition about to be pre
sented to Judge "White:
"Judge White, if he doesn't want to be
set down as a mere obstinate person who
pavs no attention to any one else's opinion,
will deal favorably with our petition. The
petition points out that the Exposition will
open in -a few days and that the rush of
strangers upon Pittsburg will be great.
The supply of legitimate liquor stores will
not be sufficient and the speak-easy will, in
consequence, flourish. Our petition will
also point out that the result of the restrict
ing of licenses has been to increase speak
easies." Asked whether they hoped for a favorable
decision from Judge "White, Mr. Bing said
they had every hope 6T a change in the
Judge's opinions. Mr. Bing has consulted
Attorney Robb, who is counsel in the case,
and other lawyers, all of whom believe
"Judge "White will take this opportunity to
retire gracefully from his former position,
and admit that he was legally mistaken."
Attorncv Robb is also confident of success.

1,500 MILES OF RAILS
Wanted Right Here for New Japanese
Railroads in Prospect
A STDDI0US JAP READY TO SELECT.
He Will Come From Altoona to PiMstmrg
in a Few Days, and Bee.
WHAT HE SAYS OF EASTERN PE0GEESS
M. Fukuzawa, of the Sanyo Railway
Company, Kobe, Japan, will visit Pitts
burg within a fen days to look over the
mills, and especially those making steel
rails, with the object of ultimately pur
chasing in this country rails for
from 1,500 to 1,800 miles' of rail
road in Japan. He is now at Altoona,
studying the transportation department of
the Pennsylvania Railroad, and yesterday
gave a Dispatch reporter a pleasant chat.
He was sent over here by the Sanyo Bail
way Company nearly three years ago to
study railroading, and will return to Japan
in about two months.
The'company now operates a road from
Kobe to Bakan, about fifty miles long, but
are now arranging to build about 1,500 to
1,800 more miles. The company
is composed wholly of Japanese,
and has a capital of ?3,000,000.
M. Fukuzawa said that since the first
railroads were bnilt in Japan, the people
have "gone crazy" over them and clamor
for more. The profits on the 1,000 mile's
now in the country are enormous, the roads
paying as high as 20 per cent dividends
THE TWO GEEATEST.
The investigator selected from all of the
railroads here, the New" York Central and
the Pennsylvania, and for nearly three
years has been asking questions, discussing
complicated systems of billing, ticket sell
ing, mechanical engineering, etc, and once
a month writing home to his company,
what to them is a fairy tale of the wonders
of invention in this country.
The vestibule train with its dining cars,
shaving chairs, baths, libraries, sleepers,
parlors, etc., were fully described in one
letter, with drawings; but his company
wrote back that it was too much for them.
Japan couldn't stand such a jump from be
ing carried around by coolies to a palace on
Mr. Pnkuzawa has spent much of his
time in Philadelphia, and was once before
in Altoona. As a result of his mission the
Japanese roads have adopted the air brake,
the Jenny coupler, the Pennsylvania Bail
road system ot counting, and are now study
ing over the question ot adopting American
rolling stock. Their roads are only bnilt
narrow gauge, 'ii feet between the rails,
and smaller engines than here are used.
They propose at first to transport
from this country eight locomotives and 200
passenger and freight cars. M. Fukuzawa
has partially decided on the Baldwin woiks
in Philadelphia for his locomotives, but
will look around in Pittsburg. He has
been informing himself about H. E. Porter
& Co., but did not bpeafcol having heard of
the Pittsburg Locomotive Works.
HIS PITTSBTJBG VISIT.
He intends visiting the Edgar Thomson
Steel Works and it may be possible that
Pittsburg will in the near fnture furnish
steel rails for Japan's railroads.
The company have about decided to pur
chase American rolling stock, but the corre
spondence about different specifications,
prices, etc., tikes a long-time. Full expla
nations of every detail have to be given and
their questions answered. This -cannot
be done by cable, hence the slow negoti
ations ot M. Fukuzawa's company.
The English built the first roads in Japan
and, of course, the English rolling stock
was used. The Japanese now Know oi no
other from actual experience, and though
M. Fukuzawa has persistently explained to
them the superiority of the American cars
over the compartment system, they want to
know more about it, and asx their
decision will undoubtedly set the
precedent for all future railroads in Japan,
they are carefully looking into all the de
tail's. It may be said that, in a great meas
ure, the adoption of the American system
lays wholly in M. Fukuzawa's powers to
explain to "his countrymen its merit, and
persuade them that it is best in all things.
First class fare on the Japanese roads is
4 cents, second cjass 2 cents and third
class 1 cent, making it possible lor a man to
ride according to his means.
The man on which so much depends is a
young man apparently, as far as an
American is able to judge of a Japanese
age. He is of one ol the best families of Ja
pan and well educated, speaking and writ
ing the English language exceedingly well.
Shortly after his arrival in America a news
paper reporter wrote that he was a prince of
royal blood, bnt such he says is not so.
His father, Yukiche Fukuzawa, is the
editor of the Jiji Shimpan or the Times,
the largest daily paper in Japan. It has
60,000 circulation daily, and uses cyl
inder presses and all of the latest im
provements in printing. The subscription
price is 40 cents per week. It had a full
account of Pittsburg's Centennial from the
pen (or brush) ot M. Fukuzawa, who was
in the city at the time. The Japanese are
greatly interested in anything American,
and crave after foreign letters, which they
read with wonder.
FAITH IN THE La& 0. AGENT.
Secretary Houston Doesn't Beliovo E, P.
Young Is Beyonil Recall.
Concerning the report that E. P. Young,
one of the agents of the Law and Order
League, has fled from the city and gone to
Texas, James W. Houston, Secretary of
the society, said yesterday:
"I have rrot inquired about his absence,
because I do not believe he has fled. My
failure to investigate has not been because I
was not interested. It is true I am his
bondsman to the extent of $500. I have rio
doubt we will be able to produce him when
he is needed. According to reports of the
opposition, other men of ours have been lost
in the same way, but they have always been
on hand when wanted. Whether Mr.
Young has lelt town or not, I do not know,
because I have not seen Captain Wishart
for several days."
A call was made at the office of Captain
Wishart, but he was not in.

SOME RARE 'SQUIBES.
Inspector Whlteuonse Tell Abont One of
Them Another 'Witness Against the
Bnuder Gang: A Promise.
Inspector Wbitehouse sat in the Nine
teenth ward station last evening and talked
about the .Bander conspiracy case. He
said: "We have a fresh witness against
Bauder. Charles Yolk was Bander's part
ner when the detective agency started up,
bnt a dispute caused him to withdraw from
the concern and strip the office of all the
furniture, which he bought in the -first
place. He is in jail, charged with keeping
a disorderly house and illegal liquor selling,
and is anxious to shed some light upon the
Bauder crowd. Bauder -himself hoped to
use his gang against the Department of
Safety witnesses, if he had secured any
magistrate to take bis informations.
" V7e have some rare 'Squires in this city.
One of them recently sned a man who had
started to Germany two weeks before suit
was brought, for illegal liqoor selling. The
'Squire made the information before him
self and issued a warrant for the arrest of
the man, knowing he had reached Germany.
The warrant was taken to the man's house
and read to his wife.
"Then the 'Squire sat on the case, with
out the little formality of the presence of
the defendant, and gave a judgment for ?67,
including costs. The family refused to pay,
and the 'Squire sent his constable up to
their house to tack up an execution and sale
notice. The friends of the poor woman then
came up with the money. Oh yesl we will
take care of the 'Squire all right!"

should forfeit a day's pay, had the effect of
securing a large crowd.

Kany houses along the route of the pro

on Carson street, where the marchers were
received with an ovation. Before starting

After the parade the carpenters divided,
and took in the several picnics held by
other organizations. A number of them
went to Wildwood to attend the gathering
of the Marble and Slate Work
ers and Tile Layers' Union. A num
ber of speakers were advertised to
engage here in debate with employers of
labor on the hour question. There were
several thousand people at the picnic; bat
only informal discussions were indulged in.
John M. Kelly, of this city, was present,
and delivered a little talk to the men.
All kinds of sports and amusements
had been provided tor by the committee,
and nothing was left undone to insure a
pleasant time lor everybody. The Italian
orchestra was nresent, and furnished the
latest music for dancers. The fun was con
tinued until after dusk, when the large
crowd boarded the Pittsburg and Western
special traine and were conveyed home.
The members of L. A. 9863, Knights of
Labor, cork workers, held a picnic at Hul
tonon the Allegheny Valley Railroad. It
required three special trains to haul the
crowd to the grove. There was no attempt
made to hold a meeting; the gathering was
just a picnic, in every sense of the word.
Painters' Union No. 72, of the Southside,
held a picnic at Hammel's garden, on
Mount Oliver. A number of labor leaders
were present, but there were no addresses in
honor of the day.

President Marvin and Manager Johnston,
of the Exposition, were greatly surprised
yesterday by the refusal ot 00 carpenters,
joiners, stairbuilders and slaters to work on
Labor Day. There remained only three
working days, and every hour was con
sidered precious. When the foreman, in
the morning, informed President Marvin
that their men were not going to work, it
was decided to offer them double pay. The
men demanded in addition, to double pay,
52 50 with which to pay their fine to their
union for working on Labor Day. This
was refused, and the men departed to join
About 20 of the employes of the Marshall
Construction Companywhich is erecting
Power Hall, quit work, leaving only 12 on
the building. All will return to work this
morning; but the time lost may be vital.
President Marvin said yesterday: "I am
completely disgusted. To think that they
would leave us in the lurch this way, after
the thousand of dollars we have paid to
them, and paying extra time, alsol I
never was so beatqn in my life. It throws
us back badly."
The officials of the Exposition Society
still hope that, by strenuous efforts, the
Power Hall will be ready by to-night. The
Street Cleaning Depaftment ot this city
yesterday did good work in washing, with
hose, the dust off Duqucsne way. The work
will be completed to-day. The Pennsyl
vania Eailroad Company has not yet moved
toward Jaying the new track along Third
street from Perin avenuo to Duquesne way.
"WILL TEY TO MAKE IT UP.
In the evening, with characteristic pluck,
President Marvin was hopeiul the lost time
might in a measure be made up, and said:
"01 course we will put extra men on, and
we will work day and night, or as long as
the men will consent to work 'for good
wages; but I repeat, I am sorry they de
serted us just at this moment, for even one
Here the conversation closed, and a hunt
for Manager Johnston finally discovered,
that very busy gentleman. "Will you be
ready for the opening night?" was the first
and only query.
"The main building is in excellent shape,"
said he, "and will present a handsome ap
pearance. As lor Power Hall I can only
say we' are doing nicely with it, and we will
be ready to show visitors a marvel of exhib
its and architecture, thongh not for a few
"I wish," continued Mr. Johnston, "that
the exhibitors would furnish us a list of
bona fide employes at once, so as to save
trouble in admission. And I wish also the
exhibitors would cut the number down as
low as possible, as they only encumber the
floors and exhibits if there are too many."
A tour of the building showed the hand
some main building had undergone a won
derful change since Saturday.
Iron coverings have been placed on the
doors between the buildings, as the art gal
lerv is to be fire-proof, while jnst outside of
the'se doors, in the great hall, piles upon
piles of flowers, plants and floral decora
tions were being placed in masses of sweet
smelling green and colors, and the men at
work promised this hall would be finished
for the opening.
Contractor Murphy, speaking of the car
penters' holiday, said it would not throw
them back an hour, as they were almost fin
ished, and a few extra men and a few extra
hours would catch up iu their work. Ho
expressed no doubts, as to the looks and
completion of the main building.
At a meeting held late last night watch
men, with their sergeants and aids, were ap
pointed to keep guard over the buildings,
outside and in. A score of trustworthy fel
lows were appointed, with now and then s
man in authority. In the main building
the old reliable doorkeeper will probably be
in authority, while in Machinery Hall, a

He saw the uteelboil over and heard ereEM
in the pit.- He helped to take the ladle
away from the pit and put the hose on to
cool the place, bnt by the time they reaeked
the pit the 'man in it was dead. He saw,
the knetal put in the ladle and it looked' all
right. There was a very heavy pressure of
gas on that .day. ,
WATEE POSSIBLY IHEEE.
McConnell believed there must have been
water in the bottom of the ladle, and he
thought it got there because the ladle had
not been thoroughly dried after baying been
cooled off. Tbewater. he thought, was un
der the bottom of the foam and slag that is
put in, and when the hot steel waa pat in
the ladle it eat through and got onto the
wet brick, which caused it to boil over, He
was satisfied that the steel reaching the wet
brick caused the explosion.
William Ferguson was No. 1 pitman
where the accident occurred, and was the
only one who escaped. He noticed in the
morning that the bottom was out of the
ladle. A new bottom was . put in, bnt in
drying it blistered tome, ana he was suspi
cious of it. He also noticed the bottom ot
the ladle sweating, and thought it was not
dry. He told some of the men to watch it
as he was afraid the steel might come
through. Mr. Lane, the ladleman, said
something about too much water having
been put in.. the ladle. He was standing
within two foot of the ladle and heard a
'boiling sonnd inside, and he ran and yelled
lor the men to save themselves.
James Dorsey was ladleman on the night
turn at the fnrnace where the accident oc
curred. He quit work abont 6 o'clock on
the morning of the accident, being relieved
by Isaac Lane. The ladle was. in a very
bad shape. There was no bottom, it being
out clear to the brick.' He put the ladle iu
the ladle-pit and pnt on it just enough
water to cool it off. He had
SPOKEN TO THE MANAOEES
about four months previous about the bad
condition of the ladle. The bricks in the
bottom were swollen out, and he thought
water got under them. In his opinion the
ladle was defective and needed repairs.
ABlackalder. dav superintendent of the
mill, was at the fnrnace .when the accident
happened. He ordered the heat tapped and
the flow ot steel was good. He heard the
explosion and screams and ran to give as
sistance. There were about 40,000 pounds
in the ladle at the time of the accident.
He could not see any way that water could
get under the bricks in the bottom of the
ladle. 'He was notified abont fonr months
previous that the ladle was in bad condition
and had the boss bricklayer repair it. Sev
eral ladlemen had been cautioned against
putting too much water in the ladles to cool
I. J. Morton night superintendent, was
at the mill when the accident ocenrred.
Mr. Dorsey had 'repqrted to him about the
ladle needing repairs six months before and
it bad been attended to; half of a new bot
tom had been pnt in. The bottom contained
seven inches oi brick He thought damp
ness in the bottom was what "caused the
steel to boil over." They had no extra ladles
about the mill, and he doubted if one was
there if the men wonld use it, as it was
quite a job to get a ladle out of the pit to
put another one in.
At this point the inquest was adjonrned
until Wednesday afternoon.at 1:30 o'clock.
