Official Showing of the Inter
nal Bevenue Office,
GIVING THE LICENSES.
Has the Department Canght Up With
the Liquor Law-Breakers?
A TEEY IMPORTANT DOCUMENT
Bearing on the Use of Official Records
Courts of Law.
A TEST CASE WOULD BE WELCOMED
The Dispatch has accomplished some
thing entirely without precedent in the his
tory of t,he Internal Revenue Service in the
accurate reproduction of the names and lo
cations of all persons who have paid the
customary Government liquor tax in Alle
gheny county since May 1 last. The list
has been copied carefully from the official
"Becord "N"o. 10" of Collector Warmcastle's
Internal Revenue office, and may be relied
on as being comprehensive and correct
An accurate list of those in Allegheny
county who have received licenses under
the operations ot the Brooks Slate law has
been as carefully prepared from the official
record of the Clerk of Courts' office. By a
painstaking comparison the names of all
tbose holding county licenses have been
separated from the balance as indicated by
the star () placed at the left of-each name.
In other words the star at the beginning of
a name indicates that the person holds both
county and Government licenses.
It must be remembered that man whole
sale and retail dealers, believng .hat the
arly contemplated appeals to the Supreme
Court from 0 udge "White's decisions would
work a reversal of the action of the Alle
gheny Court of Quarter Sessions, paid the
customary government tax, expecting and
hoping to receive the county license farther
along. Many, also, in changing places of
business or renewing leases, acted prior to
the quarter sessions court decision, and
took out government tax, confidently ex
pecting to receive county license.
"When a Dispatch reporter requested
. Collector Warnicastle's consent to publish
the list, it was apparent that there was some
hesitation, principally because snch matters
have not heretofore been considered public
property. But as section 3210, R. S., ex
pressly states that the record of the names
of all taxpayers to Government must be
"conspicuously displayed in the Collector's
office," it was finally decided that the pub
lication would be perfectly proper. In the
onerous task ot wading through 20,000
names on the record Chief DcDuty H. J.
Mitchell afforded every possible courtesy.
AX IMPORTANT DOCUMENT.
As emphatically settling the question of
whether as Chief J. O. Brown, of the De
partment of Public Safety, claimed recently
the official records in the Internal Reve
nue Collector's office can or cannot be pro
duced in county courts as evidence against
illegal liquor sellers, Chief Deputy Mitchell
offered The DisrATCH representative an
opportunity to copy from the records the
following letter from tht highest possible
authority. The letter is self explanatory.
U. S. Tkfascky Uepabtmen-t, I
VAiniNGTON, March 23. I8S7.
E. A. Blgler, Esq., Collector Twenty-third Dis
trict: Sin Deputy Collector S. C. Thompson, of
your district, writes to tins office under date of
the 18th inst., as follows.
'The Court of Common Pleas of Indiana
county. Pa., has subpoenaed nie to give testi
mony In cases of those who have paid special
revenue tax and hue stamps lu their poses
sion; when liquor dealers hae done this, I do
not think it my duty to gh e testimony in snch
cases. Please inform me if I can be compelled
by the Commonwealth to do this"
"You will please inform jour deputy that this
office see6 no impropriety in lib responding to
a subpasna, if it does, not interfere with the du
nes of his office.
Collectors are required by Fection 3210, R. S.,
to keep conspicuously in their office for public
inspection an alphabetical littof all persons
who have paid special taxes in their district.
A deputy collector could not probably give
any cwdence which would furnish more infor
mation than could be obtained from an inspec
tion of this list, which is open to the public,
unless he has books and papers which belong
to your office, and which he should not pro
duce. In case you are served with a subpoena dnces
tecum, requiring you to produce papers and
books belonging to your office, ou w ill please
apply to this office for instructions as to what
action should be taken. Respectf ullv,
Joseph S. Miller.
Internal Revenue Commissioner.
"WAKTS TO SEE A TEST CASE.
"Has this point ever been authoratively
settled, Mr. Mitchell?" asked the reporter.
"It has never been ruled upon," he re
plied. "We would like to see a test case
made. There have been rulings that sub
stantiate our theory that the county courts
cannot compel us to produce our books. AVe
mantain that the negoti itions for a United
States tax are in the nature of a privileged
communication, not to be disclosed so far as
the laws of the general government are con
cerned. It is a broad rule that a man may
not be punished by a State court for a vio
lation of a State law, because he has obeyed
the requirements of the national laws. If
at any time we are asked to produce our
books in the county courts we will cite the
case over to the United States Court in
order to obtain a ruling which will be de
cisive. The following is the list or United States
liquor taxpayers in Allegheny county:

HOW TO ELECT A PASTOR.
Rev. Dr. Hammond Stops an Indignation
Meeting In Ilia Behalf Ills Resigna
tion Is Irrevocnblc.
An interesting meeting of the Shady Ave
nue Baptist Church was held last evening.
It was the night for the regular weekly
prayer meeting, but Eev. E. H. Hammond
had called a special business meeting of the
membership, to be held after the prayer
meeting. It reached the ears of the pastor
that a number of the members proposed to
take advantage of this meeting to protest
against his resignation and to endeavor to
secure its reconsideration. These members
are all friends of the retiring pastor and de
sire to retain him here.
Daring the afternoon Rev. Mr. Hammond
sent for a number of the prominent mem
bers of the congregation, and had a very
plain talk with them. He told them em
phatically that no reconsideration of his
resignation was possible, that bis decision
was irrevocable, and that he could not per
mit the possibility of any change to be dis
cussed. Any debate of the matter would
not do the church good and might cause
harm. The gentlemen agreed, with reluc
tance, to acquiesce in the pastor's request,
and, therefore, the proposed protests were
not beard at the evening meeting.
There was more than the usual attend
ance at the prayer meeting, and the services
were conducted with evident earnestness.
After the meeting Eev. Mr. Hammond
called the business meeting to order. For
about half an hour he addressed the congre
gation as to the manner in which bethought
they oucht to select a new pastor. He ad
vised the appointment of a committee of
seven, to whom should be given lull power
to choose a new pastor. The committee
ought to consistof two deacons and five fiom
the other membership, so that it would rep
resent all classes of the church. This com
mittee would undoubtedly receive advice
from many persons as to the person who
ought to be called to the pastorate. This ad
vice would be suggested from motives of per
sonal friendship, and ought not to be heeded.
Ber. Mr. Hammond suggested a rather novel
method to procure the right man for the
place. He recommended that the committee
should prepare a letter, describing the needs
of the church and the demands ot the field,
and stating the amount of the salary which
would be paid. A copy of this letter should
be sent to the President of each of the five
theological seminaries of the.Baptist faith,
with a request that an available and suitable
man should be recommended. The Presi
dents of these church schools watch the
careers of their graduates, know their
strength and their weaknesses and are not
likely to show partiality. Rev. Mr. Ham
mond believed that those men were the most
capable to suggest a man for the place.
When the five recommendations are re
ceived the committee sbonldcarefullyweigh
the replies, and without hearing any of the
candidates, should select and call the minis
ter deemed the most suitable. Neither
should the congregation hear him until he
stepped into the pulpit as its accepted pas
tor. It should receive him prayeriully and
be unto him a loving people.
Mr. Jacob Berry moved tuat the pastor's
plan be accepted and that a committee of
seven be appointed. The motion was sec
onded by Mr. J. S. King, and was carried
unanimously. The following members of
the committee were named: M. C. 51c
Culloch, L. M. Morris, I. G. Beam, P. T.
Lusk, "W. H. Hill, T. J, Black and A. V.
Verner. Their appointment was ratified by
a unanimous vote of the congregation. The
committee will meet at the call ot the chair
man in a few days.
Rev. Mr. Hammond's resignation will
not take effect until October 1.

Small Producers of the Region Dr

AFEAID OF PRICK'S COMBINATION.

THE PITH OP THE INDDSTBIAL HEWS
The small coke producers of the Connells-
ville region are forming a syndicate for
their own protection against the H. C.
Frick and McClure companies, who, the
small operators claim, Will try to compel
them to sell out their interests, or be forced
out of the market. As has been published,
the Frick Company own and have in course
of erection 8,269 ovens, or over
two-thirds of the competitive ovens
of the entire region. There are now in
the region 13,540 completed ovens; 1,214 of
these are operated by blast furnacemen,
and their product is consumed by the
owners, and does not enter the market.
This makes the actual number of ovens now
in the trade 12,326. As Mr. Frick will own
8,269 ovens, and the McClure Company con
trol 1,356 ovens, it will be seen that the two
companies have nearly everything in their
LITTLE FELLOWS SCARED,
The smaller producers have viewed witti
alarm the large purchases of the Frick Com
pany, whose apparent object was to control
the whole region. In order to protect the
market a number of them decided to form a
combination. As will be seen by the tele
gram published below only one small in
dividual operator has not gone into the
scheme. It is supposed that bis reason for
staying out, is on account of a dicker be is
trying to make with the Frick Com
pany who want to buy him out.
It is well-known in the region
that negotiations are going on between Mr.
Fritk's representatives and "W. J. Bainey,
and it is supposed he is the man who is
sticking out. His plant numbers 699 ovens,
and he would be a valuable acquisition to
the new combination. A dicker is also go
ing on between the Frick company and the
Cambria Iron Company, who own 680 ovens.
and who, it is claimed, have stated they
could buy coke, cheaper than they could now
In regard to the new combination, the
following telegram "was received last night
POOLING THEIB INTERESTS.
The preliminary steps were taken to-day at
Conneflsville, and the details settled for the
formation of a large coke company. All the
remaining coke producers outside the Frick
and McClnre companies will throw their prop
erties into one large concern, with a big capi
tal and a charter for the company will be ad
vertised next week.
Each owner will take stock in the new com
pany to the value of his plant, and all the prop
cities come under one management. Already
the new company has been approached by a
number ot largo furnace owners, who want to
take their product, and also want to advance
the capital to extend some of the plants and
take stock In the new concern.
Only one Individual operator is uncertain,
ana he leans toward the project. The small
owners believe that they can only compete
with the two large companies now controlling
the region, by banding together in this way,
and with their 1,500 ovens will be able to get
better transportation and freight rates, than
they could alone. The demand for coke ex
ceeds the supply and it is understood that the
price for October will be tl 50 per ton..

"No" and "Yes," and would not talk
One wanted to know if they had to

SO MORE SCALES SIGNED.
The Window Ginss .Situation Remained Un
There was no change in the window glass
situation yesteiday. No more scales had
been signed, but several are expected to be
heard from to-day or to-morrow. The leport
that a meeting of the manufacturers in the
Eastern Association was to be held in Phil
adelphia to-day and they would probably
sign the scale caused the workers here to
think that it would compel the Pittsburg
mahulafcturers to do likewise.
President Campbell, of the workers' asso
ciation, desires that it be stated that there is
no strike. The trouble cannot be called a
strike until the annual time for resuming
worh. iiiu fjnsscu. jaa Year Lucy uiu uui gu
to work until October 1. The year previous
they did not begin until October 12. Tbey
have not in recent years begun work until
after October 1, and until that .time the
trouble cannot be called a strike.

C. E. Williams. General Manager of the
West Park Window Glass Company, at
JTindlay, was in the city yesterday for the
purpose of hiring men to work in his fac
tory at Pindlay. The plant is a new one,
having ten pots, aud cost 540,000. The com
pany, in which Pittsburg and Wheeling
people are interested, has a capital stock ot
$75,000. The firm intends to sign the scale,
and go to work on October 15, providing
they can secure the men. Mr. Williams
states that other factories in Findlay will
start on the 15th of the present month. He
also thinks that the manufacturers all over
the West will sign the workers' scale, as
soon as they get ready to start up.

A man who came from Washington, D.

If the proposed line is built it will take
considerable business from the railroads now

100 cars east and west each day. Most of
this is ore from the lakes, and about two
weeks ago they made a contract
with the Pittsburg and Western Com
pany for 1,000,000 tons. In the event
ot the line being built, all the westbound
coke from the Frick plants, which will
average over 500 cars per day, will be sent
over the new road. The cars would be
loaded with ore at the lakes, sent Fast and
then reloaded with coke for the West. The

,On Morifftyerafeg he met two ge 8 tie

and yesterday "Mn Brameman arrived ia,
Pittsburg and met his'eoBamerciaT friends at
tbe Seventh Avenne Hotel, whence he was
taken to the Monongahela Bouse, where the
conference took place Be was to receive
$2,000 worth of "greea goods." and paid
f 150 in good money for the bargain.
In order to be sure he was right and tbes
90 ahead, he took with him Samuel Caned,
M. D., who flourished a Grannan'a Detee
tive Agency badge, a dark lantern, a pair
of nippers and a very wid-brimmed gray
sombrero. This body guard of tbe eater
prising seeker ifter fortune at cheap rates
for cash was noticed around police head
quarters by Inspector McAleese, and ques
tioned as to bis business.
HIS TITIJ! WAS A SHAM.
He acknowledged modestly being a detec
tive, but when Superintendent Boger
O'Mara took him in hand he weakened and
acknowledged that his title of M. D. meant
mule driver in the mines at Dufisville, and
that he had paid $10 for his outfit as a de
tective to Grannan's Cincinnati agency.
He had come down to the city as a guard to
Mr. Brumeman, who is a store keeper and
ex-Postmaster at Dufisville, and proposed
to take care of him while in the wicked
city. After beinglocked up in the Central
station for a few .hours he thought he could
be depended upon to take care of himself if
let loose, and was accordingly let go.
The bargain with Mr. Brumeman was
very briefly concluded In the room of J. D.
Judson, of Cincinnati, at tbe Monongahela
House. He was given several sample bills
of good United States money, and asked to
test them at any bank in the city, but in a
burst of confidence refused to do so, handed
over his $150 and received an envelope
stufied with paper. When opened the en
velope showed a large mass of paper cut to
the size of bank bills from an issne of the
Chicago Timet and tbe following letter, the
advice in which alone is worth the money
paid for the whole contents:
PASTING T70BD3 OF -WISDOM.
Dear Sia As I do not wish to cause you
any further trouble I will give you a piece of
advice. The less yon. ay about this business
tbe better it will be for yon. Just as soon a
you say a single word tbe newspapers will bave
it, and you will be forever disgraced and
ruined. Nobody will trnst yon. Businessmen
will bave nothing to do with you, and every
body will point you out as a man who
tried to bny counterfeit money with which you
wisneato cneatyonr neignDors ana inenus.
You will not only ruin yoarself,.bat disgrace
your family as well. The only satisfaction you
can get from tbe police is to get arrested and
locked up yourself. So take my advice, eo
home and let eoonteneit money aione. ror in
honest toil alone you will find success and hap
piness. From your well wisher,

When Brumeman discovered the fraud
by which he was victimized he went to In
spector McAleese's office about noon yester
day and related his story, which, however,
had been somewhat anticipated by the ar
rest of his care-taker, the detective, but, of
course, too late to be of any service. The
"green goods" men had flown, and, al
though Superintendent O'Mara has made
every effort to secuie the men on a charge of
fraud, it is more than probable that Mr.
Judson and his coniederates are now util
izing part ol tbe 3450 in putting a good
streak of railroad, track between them and
A POKER EOUM EAIDED.
How a Sharp Detective Canght on to a
Detective "Fitzgerald, while leisurely
walking down Grant street about 11 P. 31.
yesterday, said while looking up at the
three-story brick bouse south of Alderman
McMaster's office, "I'll bet there's a poker
game going on in there."
He investigated the building, and finding
a man coming out of a back room on the third
story took him to tbe Central station. He
then returned with Inspector McKelvey,
of the Southside, and raided the
room, capturing Thomas Barley, the
proprietor, and seven poker players, with a
complete outfit. The tables, chips and other
paraphernalia were of an inferior class of
goods, and there was only $2 75 in sight on
the table when the game was interrupted.
Wnen Detective Fitzgerald gave the cu
tomnry advice to "bash in," it was not done,
probably with the intention ot pleading in
defense that the game was only for fun. In
police circles it is said that this case will go
hard with Barley.
JUMPED FROM A WINDOW.
A Southside Hosplial Patient Leap to H!
About 4 o'clock yesterday morning a Pole
named Milo Vuletick, 27 years old, while
suffering from typhoid delirium, jumDed
from tbe second story of the Southside Hos
pital, and received injuries from which he
died shortly after.
The man had been in tbe hospital only a
few days and at a time when the nurses
were absent, he left his bed and jumped
from the window. A call was made at the
hospital last night to get the facts in the
case, but the Superintendent positively re
fused to furnish the press with any informa
tion. The deceased lived on South Fifteenth
street, and was a laborer by occupation.
Coroner McDowell will hold an inquest to
day. The body of the deceased is at Semel
rock's undertaking rooms.
EXroSITIOX AND HOTELS.
Tbey Are Not Making Special Arrange
ments to Accommodate Visitors.
W. H. Crosby, chief clerk or the Ander
son, said last night that they had not made
any special arrangements to accommodate
Exposition visitors, as it was not antici
pated that it would make much difference
with the hotels, the visitors being mostly
from the town and would return home after
seeing the Exposition.
The other hotels report also that they are
not making any special arrangements, and
think they can accommodate all that come.
