NOT YET DROPPED.
The Allegheny Conncllmnnle Bribery Oases
They Will Come Before the Grand
Jury This Jlonlh Cause of the Delay.
The cases of It, E. Scandrett and William
A. Hadfield before Mayor Pearson, of Alle
gheny, charged with corruptly soliciting
J. G. Ebbert to vote for Thomas A. Park
for chairman of Allegheny Councils, is
again attracting attention on account nf its
failure to get before the grand jury at last
term, bnt it is said not to be dead.
Messrs. Haymaker and Fagan, of the Dis
trict Attorney's office, explain how it came
to fail at last term. Chief of Police Murphy
had an agreement with Mr. Haymaker to
fix the case for a hearing on a Thursday,
and Mr. Fagan sent out notices accordingly,
but subsequentlyattended the lawyers' piC
Tlin and fnrfnt in farennre the lndinlmpnt
and, of course, no MUNtvas found. A day
t -was then fixed and the pdictment framed,
but in the meantime Mayor Pearton had
". arranged to go to the seaside, and when the
case came on with a lot of other suspended
' cases, neither prosecutor.nor witnesses ap-
, peared, and finally the grand jury adjourned
.' without taking action.
, Both Messrs. Haymaker and Fagan now
r? state that it will be acted upon by the pres-
' ent grand jury as soon as the jail cases are
disposed of. The jail calendar always takes
precedence of other cases, as it is a hardship
for an innocent person to be kept long in
jail awaiting trial, ana even those wno ex
pect Jo be found guilty are supposed to be
anxious to get through their misery as soon
A DITORCE REFUSED,
And an Unhappy linnbnnd Told Where Ho
Made a Mistake.
Judge Ewing yesterday refused a divorce
in the case of Mrs. Frieda Stelzner against
C. B. Stelzner, a music teacher, living at
No. 545 Smithfield street. The couple were
married September 18, 1888, immediately
' went to housekeeping, and six weeks later
separated, Mrs. Stelzner returning to her
home in Allegheny. The cause ot the sepa
ration was a quarrel, in which Stelzner's
stepmother was concerned, and abuse
alleged to have followed. Judge Ewing, in
his opinion, said:
The husband does not appear to have heeded
the law laid down by the apostle, that "for
this cause a man shall leave father and mother
and cleave unto his wife." He clove to his
stepmother. If his conduct was snch as de
tailed by his wife, it was very bad; such as
would justify a court in ordering him to sup
port his wife elsewhere until he would furnish
her a suitable home and properly support and
Continuing, Judge Ewing said that six
weeks was a very short probation for a mar
ried pair; also that such a case ol cruel aud
barbarous treatment as to require the court
to decree an absolute divorce bad not been
made out The divorce was refused, and
the costs placed on the husband.
A divorce was granted in the case of Fred
Opperman against Elizabeth Opperman.
The couple were residents of Braddock.
Desertion and infidelity were alleged.

Judge White yesterday had a conference
with the County Commissioners regarding

AUSTRALIAN GOLD SENT HERE.
A Novel Scheme of Bankers to Secure Ex
change on London.
Sax Francisco, September 4. The
large sum of $5,000,000 in treasure was
brought by the Oceanic steamship Zealan
dia, which arrived from Australia on Sat
urday. This coin was consigned to banks
of this city, who in turn have disposed of it
to the United States mint at its real value.
Shipments of similar large amounts will be
made tor several months. The reason of
these shipments is that Australian bankers
find it cheaper to handle exchange on Lon
don and other European cities
via ban Francisco than direct to
London. It is the custom among American
bankers to sell exchange on London at from
60 to 90 days. Very little old gold is
shipped to this city, the bankers buying it
direct from the colonial mints, whence it is
shipped direct to the San Francisco Mint
and is accepted at its real value. It takes
from 36 to 40 days to ship bullion from
Australia to London, and but 25 days to
While the bullion is on its way to this'
point exchange on London is easily secured
by the Australian bankers by cable, to pro
tect drafts as they are presented. By this
manner of operating exchange the Aus
tralians save in freight, insurance and in
terest, and usually have the advantage of
favorable exchange on London. The propo
sition to establish a fortnightly service be
tween Sydney and San Francisco has for
this reason been approved by the Colonial
bankers, as it would permit them to enjoy
more frequent correspondence. It is prob
able that most of this money is for the pur
chase of wheat The new Colonial sover
eigns are thrown into the melting pot here
and come out as American gold.

Philadelphia, September 4. The

CIGARMAKERS' UNION LABEL.
The Decision of Judge Thayer, of St. Louis,
Will Be Appealed.
New York, September 4. Secretary
Dampf, of Cigarmakers' Union No. 144,
says tha,t the international body will not
bow to the decision ol United States Circuit
Court Judge Tnayer. The organization be
gan action against a St. Louis manufacturer
who was accused of counterfeiting the
union's blue label on his cigar boxes. The
Judge's decision was that it was not an
offense to counterfeit the label. The case,
Mr. Dampf says, will be taken to the
United States Supreme Court.
The union has won over a dozen cases
against cigar manufacturers who used the
label without authority. About two years
ago Judge Dugro, of the Superior Court,
decided that it was an offense to use the
label without authority, or to counterfeit it.
His decision has served as a basis for the
decisions rendered in similar cases in sever
al States since. Some time ago, however,
a New Jersey judge decided that the label
was not protected by law. The case has

WORK OF THE. BUSH.
A Pittsburger Who Waa Surgeon on
That Revenue Gutter.
THE SEAL FISHERIES MONOPOLY.
Seizure of Depredating Vessels Going on
for Four lears.
WHI ONLY ONE SEAMAN IS POT ABOARD
A reporter for The Dispatch conversed
yesterday with Dr. Paul M. Carrington,
surgeon for the United States Marine Hos
pital service in this city, who was, during
the season of 1887, the surgeon of the reve
nue cutter Bush, in Behring Sea.
"The Bush," he said, "has been engaged
-in just such work, of seizing depredators,
for four years at least The American peo
ple generally seem to be possessed of a num
ber of erroneous ideas concerning the Bush.
That vessel is not under jurisdiction of the
Navy Department, and does not belong to
the naval force. It belongs to the
Bevenue Marine, which is a bureau
or the Treasury Department It is the work
of that bureau 'to prevent violations of the
custom laws, to look after smugglers, and so
on. Lieutenant Tuttle is usually spoken
of, even in newspaper editorials, as the
commander of the Bush. He is the execu
tive officer. The commander is Captain L.
G. Shepard. Both of these gentlemen are,
of course, commissioned officers, receiving
their commissions from the President.
"Tbe situation in Behring Sea is this:
The Government has leased to the Alaska
Commercial Company the exclusive right
to catch seals on four islands. Two of these
islands, Otter and Walrus Islands, contain
very few seals. The two larger islands, St.
Paul and St. George, swarm with the fur
bearing animals. There appear to be
millions of them there. On these islands
the company is allowed to kill 100,000 seals
a year. On St Paul they kill about 85,000
and on St George abont 15,000. The com
pany has a lease of the seal islands on the
Bussian side of the sea, so that it
HAS ALMOST A MONOPOLY
of the seal fisheries. It seems that when the
Government made this contract with the
Alaska Commercial Company it agreed to
protect them in their right. It is for. that
reason that the revenue cutter Bush is kept
in those waters. No other persons are al
lowed to kill seals, except the natives, for
food and clothing purposes.
"The Alaska Company pays to tbe United
Stater Government an annual stated sum of
$50,000 I think it is, and (2 12 on each
seal skin obtained. This makes an aggre
gate sum of over $250,000 paid into the
United States Treasury. The Government
can afford to protect its lessee 'for that
revenue. Formerly the company paid also
15 cents a gallon for seal oil, but I believe
that it has quit saving that
"There is no danger of extermination of
the seals if the company alone is permitted
to kill them. They are permitted to kill
only male seals of a certain age. Three
years is about the right age to kill them for
their skins. The seals of different classes
congregate on the rocks in separate 'rook
eries.' That is the name given to their
gathering places, where they sun themselves
and take the air. The females and old balls
go in one class, while the young males, or
bachelors, go by themselves. The old males
will not allow the young males to go near
the females until they are about 5 years old.
It is therefore an easy matter to find the
young males alone and to slaughter them.
"When a rcokerv is attacked a nartv of
native, seal hunters are sent into the water J
in front of tbe rocks where the seals are
lying. By cries and splashing of the water
the hunters frighten tbe seals inland to some
level place, where they are herded up like a
flock of sheep. Three or four men can herd
a large drove of them. The killers then go
to their work. They are experts, and can
tell by an animal's nose what is itsage or
sex. The killing is done by a sharp blow
on the head with a club. It is
A BATHER TBrlNO SPECTACLE
for a novice. Tbe poor animals moan like
human beings. As soon as they are skinned
the blubber is carried away by natives. At
Sitka choice skins in the raw state bring
about 510. They are sent to London, where
they are plucked, dressed and dyed. The
manner of preparing them is a secret, and
London workers have a monopoly of that
"The seizure of intruders in tbe seal
islands is not a new thing. It has been
going on since 1886, at least. No luss was
made about it prior to this season. Amer
ican vessels as well as British are seized if
they have been poaching. In 1866 three ves
sels were seized. I think they were all
British. Whether it was the Ensh or Cor
win which made the seizures that year, I do
"The next season I was on board the Bush.
That year we made 12 seizures. Half of
them were American and half Canadian. I
think we took from those vessels from ?75,
000 to ?100,000 worth of sealskins. It was
the rule to put only one man, as a prize
crew, on board of a captured vessel. Captain
Crawford was unable to do any better than
that because he had a crew of only 35 men,
hardly more than enough to operate the ves
sel. That season we ran short of available
men for prize crews, and had to order one
Canadian vessel to go unaccompanied
to Sitka. It ran away, just as
some of them have been doing this
year. I remember we had quite a
laugh about it The seizure of the skins,
however, is a considerable punishment on
the pirates. The skins are confiscated at
Sitka and sold by the United States Mar
shal. Eleven of the vessels seized in 1887
went into the port of Sitka, and we had
quite a fleet there when we got in at tbe end
of the season. They were condemned by
Judge Dawson, of the United States Dis
trict Court Appeals were taken and have
not yet been decided. Some ot the vessels
still lie at Sitka, while -others were taken
out in bond."
btrnnger Than Fiction
Is the fact that the business men of Pitts
burg have to import stenographers from
New York, Cleveland and Chicago because
the demand is altogether in excess of the
supply in this city. The Carry School ot
Shorthand has had an attendance of nearly
250 students the past year and has filled
hundreds of positions in the past two or
three years with nrst-class writers, and has
turned half as many business" men away
empty, handed because every boy in the
school who was at all proficient had secured
a good position. Four applicants for
stenographers have been turned away
within a. week and as many positions
have been filled with our graduates.
Wby there are not more young men taking
up the study of shorthand in Pittsburg is
singular, when the fact stares us in tbe face
that positions cavintr from S3 00 to 20 00
jer week are going begging. The Curry
School ot Shorthand is the second largest
shorthand school in tbe United States, and
sends out the largest number of successful
stenographers. Still the demand for young
men is always greater than the supply.
When we consider that the cost ot the whole
course in shorthand and typewriting at
"Curry" is less than one month's waces it
is certainly the most remunerative profes
sion any young man can adopt. The school
is open day and evening, when catalogues
can be had'by calling for them.

FIFI PEE CENT LESS FHDIT
In the Hudson River Valley Than When it
Enjoys a. Fall Crop.
Maelboeo, N. Y., September 4. The
Hudson river peach and grape crop is now
being harvested. The predictions made
early in the 'season that the grape crop in
Ulster, Dutchess and Orange counties would
fall short 50 per cent of a full crop
are verified. The larger vineyards
are showing a better fruitage than
was expected, while the smaller vineyards
are short. The peach crop is beyond the
estimates given early in the season. The
fruit now being shipped is excellent in
flavor and size. Prices range from 50 cents
to $7 per half bushel baskets. The fanoy
sorts are packed in "pony" baskets holding
abont a quarter of a bushel. These pack
ages are shipped, two in a crate and Bell
from $3 to $3 per crate.
fTbus far fruit growers all along the Cen
tral Hudson Biver Valley are doing mnch
better than they anticipated. The acreage
given over to peach tree cultivation is not
large. Years ago nearly every farm of anv
size contained a peach orchard of 1 to 20
acres. The failure of the crop for
five successive years resulted in the digging
out of thousands of trees. It is
believed that thousands of young trees will
be planted next spring, as the soil condi
tions seem to be more favorable to the
growth of -the trees than it was ten years
ago. At Marlboro. Highland and Clinton
dale grape cutting has been commenced.
From this time forward thousands of tons
of grapes will be cut, packed and shipped

John Burns, who is at the head of the im

Socialist by conviction. He is the self-appointed
leader of the Workingmen's party

NO 1UTER IN THE LADLE.
The Coroner Will Tako More Testimony In
the Homestead Accident Cnusei Given
for tho Explosion.
Coroner McDowell continued the inquest
into the cause of the deaths of the Home
stead steel workers yesterday, but no de
cision will be rendered before Saturday,
when further testimony will be taken.
E. F. Woods, superintendent of the con
verting party, testified that the composition
of the steel had been determined, but that
had nothing to do with the boiling of the
heat Manganese, he said, is used to take
out the oxygen, but when there is some oxy
gen left behind it unites with the carbon
and produces ebullition. In his opinion,
this is what produced the explosion. He
does not believe water in the ladle caused
Manager Swabb confirmed Dr. Woods in
Bobert Young said he relined a good part
of the ladle on August 15, when it was in
Bobert Hamilton relined the ladle the
next day. He found the bricks in the bot
tom burned off. They were warped a little
at tbe top, hut not as much as he had seen
in other ladles, and he. did not think there
was room enough for water to collect be
tween the bricks. A glaze collects on the
fireclav which makes it waterproof.
N. W. Shod, a smelter, testified that he
saw the ladle at noon, when it was all right.
This was about an hour before the explosion
occurred. He had seen one like it before in
New Hampshire. He thinks the accident
was produced bv the action of the manganese
and spiegel in the ladle when it should have
united in the furnace. If there had been
water in the ladle, he said, it would have
splashed, but it didn't They were making
high carbon cast steel.
Henry Bost saw the men 20 minutes be
fore the explosion putting a stopper in the
fonr-hole of the ladle, and then they turned

of the Clothing, Cloak, Shoe, Hat and Furnishing Goods trade
not only in Pittsburg, but in entire Western Pennsyl
vania, Eastern Ohio and West Virginia will be
firmer than ever during
THE COMING FALL SEASON
for right now we are better prepared than ever to cater to and satisfy
all classes and conditions of people.
The number of those who patronize us increases daily. We have
all along claimed that we were headquarters in this section for every
thing pertaining to the various lines of goods handled by us. That we
could, in sporting parlance, "see" our competitors and "go them one
better." We claimed this because we believed it, hence it is most grati
fying to us to find that the number of those who also believe it increases
JUST NOW WE ARE BUSILF ENGAGED
in the successful attempt of converting into cash the balance of our
stock of Spring and Summer Clothing. The heated term isn't over yet,
Oh, no! Indeed, the thermometer during the past few days has ranged
higher than- at any time this summer, and thin garments are not only
proper but necessary from now until the cooler weather sets in. What
do you want? An Alpaca, Seersucker, Pongee, Mohair, Flannel or Drap
d'Ete Coat and Vest? You can buy any kind, grade or style for one
half the regular price.
.-. THE LIYELY SHOE TRADE .-.
that we enjoyed all through the month of August still continues. This
fact, in the face of the loud complaints about dull trade on the part of
other dealers, is proof positive of the popularity of our goods and
prices. It's the wonderful and matchless values we give that attract the
masses to our store.
Since the re-opening of the schools our trade in Boys' and Misses'
School Shoes has been especially' heavy. We have sold several thousand
pairs of our Boys' $i 50 and Misses' and Youths' $1 25 Shoes. They're
the most comfortable and substantial solid leather footwear manufac
tured and equal to anything sold elsewhere for double the money.
FACTS ABOUT OUR NEW FALL HATS
There is no mistaking the temper of the gentlemen of Pittsburg on
the Hat question. They are determined to stop paying the gilt-edged
profits of exclusive Hatters and buy their headgear at popular prices.
Thus, for instance, our new Youman, Knox, Dunlap and "Little English"
Derbys hit the taste and pocketbook of all sensible gentlemen to a dot
Our prices for them range from $1 24 to 3 50, and the qualities are
precisely the same for- which other hatters get from $2 to $5.
All the latest novelties in Children's Hats a most bewildering pro
fusion to select from at strikingly low prices. Nice, cute styles from
We will continue to give a rubber (waterproof) School
Bag. with every purchase in the Boys' department
B'FREE Deautu an very amusing novelty will be handed every
person passing our Grand Display at the Exposition. "
