SOME TEEY MYSTERIOUS MOVEMENTS.
Pierre and James 2faser, the two Sew
York agents of the much talked of English
brewery syndicate, were in the city yester
day, and in the afternoon held a conference
at the Dnquesnewith J. J. O'Reilly, who
is handling the Pittsburg end of the deal,
and Eberhardt & Ober, the Alle
gheny brewers. The utmost secrecy was
'maintained in regard to the conference, none
of the parties registering. The conference
ended before 6 p. M. and early in the even
ing Mr. James Easer was seen by a Dis
patch reporter incognito, and asked what
lad been done in regard to the brewery
He said: "It has all fallen through. "We
couldn't come to terms."
He was asked for the reasons, but
wouldn't talk iurther, but reiterated his
former statement, and said J. J. O'Eeilly
would tell all about it if he was seen.
Later the reporter made himself known and
finding Pierre Xaser and two others taking
a drink of coffee at a small table in the
library, he asked Pierre about the state
ment made by Kaser. He seemed some
what disconcerted by the question, and
when 2faser attempted to talk stopped him.
IUEEBE BEFUSED TO TALK.
He said at first that if Kaser said so, he
must know what he is talking about Tak
ing another tack he said there was no
change in the state of the deal. At last he
denied that he had anything to do with it
at all, and said it was his brother who was
connected with the syndicate.
At last Pierre urged the reporter not to
say anything at all about the whole matter,
sayins it would only be wrong. When
asked whether Mr. Naser's statement was
correct or not he refused to answpr.
Mr. O'Eeilly denied later that tne deal
was at an end. He said that Xaser was
considerably off, and had no cause for the
statement "He said the statues of the deal
was unchanged, and that the options taken

In relation to the meeting said to have
been held yesterday between local brewers
'and representatives ot the English syndi

"Yes, there was some such meeting, I un
derstand, but I have had no part or parcel
in it I am not anxious to sell out any in
terests I have, nor shall I offer my share
in the brewery for sale. There is no truth
in the so much talked of purchase ot the
Allegheny county breweries by either En
glish or any other capitalists, and I have no
idea that such a contingency will arise.
We have capital enongh to run our own
business, and don't propose to run it on

Chief of Police Kirschler, of Allegheny,
yesterday received a telegram from the
chief of the Cleveland police asking him to
arrest Dr. Maharneke, the "Little Dutch
Doctor," who figured in the late peniten
tiary investigation. In the telegram it was
stated that the doctor was wanted on a
charge or embezzlement, and officers would
be sent after him to take him to Cleveland.
Upon going to the doctor's house on Car
roll street, Mrs. Maharneke informed the
officers that her husband was not at home,
Laving left for Buffalo. The officers were
satisfied be was in the house, and after
making a careful search they found him
secreted in the garret He was taken to the
Mayor's office and! locked up. He says he
had" been working for a picture frame factory
in Cleveland, and they owed him a month's

WANT MORE LICENSES.
The Brpwcm' Association Meet They Claim
Too Close Restriction Cause Illegal
A meeting ot the representatives of the
various breweries in Allegheny county was
held yesterday afternoon in the regular
assembly room on Fourth avenue. There
were 12 representatives present of -the 15
breweries of the county, and they passed a
resolution which will be presented to -the
Court to-day, stating that theunderstanding
of the Brooks law, as far as they knew it,
was that any good citizen who applied for a
license should be granted one. The illegal
selling which is said to be so prevalent was
condemned, although the reduction from
2,700 licenses to about 300 in the connty, was
regarded as an encouragement rattier than a
stoppage of the.illegal business.
A comparison of the sales showed that the
Pittsburg breweries suffered from the re
sults of the Brooks law as enforced, for the
reason that the home breweries refused to
sell to places which were running contrary
to Ian, and the outside firms made capital
out of the position without paying a cent
license. They made arrangements from
Ybungstown and other bordering Ohio
towns, and put in their beer in competition
with the handicapped Pittsburg beverage.
One firm alone, Eberhardt, Ober & Co.,
found a decrease in trade of 9,000 barrels
last year on this ground, and others showed
an equal decrease in business, in some re
spects, and a tailing away generally in
home trade, caused by the decrease in the
number of licenses.
A committee was appointed to wait on
Judge White to-day or to-morrow, consist
ing of William Eberhardt, Harry Dannels
and Edward Frauenheim, to place before
him the facts in the case. The general idea
of the petition to be presented is the show
ing of the necessity ot more licenses as a
means to prevent the speak-easy business,
which is so much complained of, and at
present so prevalent Among other reasons
to be given for the granting of more licenses
is the admission ot Judge White, made in
open court, that he considered the business
was cut too short
The argument was advanced that people
who wished to live in accordance with the
law were compelled to sell without license
iu deference to public opinion in places
where one, two and frequently three wards
were left without a single saloon. This is
where the brewers say that the illegal sell
ing is blamable upon the courts. From
this point the rough class who see a chance
to make money starts out, caring as little
for license as for law, and puts the speak
easy into operation.
With these and other arguments of equal
strength the brewers will present their case
to the courts this week, asking on behalf of
the retail dealers for an increase in the num
ber of licenses. There is not one member of
the association, however, who expects any
change in the number before next May. At
that time, however, they look for a large
accession to the number of licensed saloons
and a great decrease in the speak-easy in-,
The petition will be presented this after
noon or to-morrow to the court, and will
bear the signature of every prominent
brewer in Allegheny connty.
Ho Is Determined to Blnrrv Oils McCul
lougn. In Spite of Opposition Hie
Mother Falls in a Dead Faint.
Thomas S. Drenning, white, and Ella
McCullough, colored, who were to have
been married, were still confined in the
Nineteenth ward station last night' In the
evening Drenning's mother, who has been
away in the country, returned when she
heard of her son's conduct, and visited him
in his cell at the lockup. Tbe mother
plead long and earnestly with him, beegine
him to overcome his strange infatuation.
Her son persistently refused to heed his
mother's advice, and emphatically in
formed her that he would marry Miss Mc
Collough. Mrs. Drenning became so worked
up over his persistent refusal to listen to her
that she fell in a dead faint, and it was
some time before she could be brought to
ner proper senses.
This fact did not cause young Drenning
to swerve from his position, and the mother
was led from the station with tears stream
ing down her cheeks.
Drenning and Miss McCollough will have
a hearing before Magistrate Hyndman this
morning on a charge of undue intimacy. It
is thought that nothing can be done i'n the
case, as Drenning insists on marrying the
girl and has the marriage license; this, it is
said, will have the effect ot quashing any
such charge against them as is now pend
ing. HITHER AflD THITHER.

TO BOYCOTT CHINESE.
Labor Movement to Drive the
Laundrymen From" This City.
ITMAY SWEEP 0TERTHE COUNTRY.
Six New Flint Glass Houses Fat Into
Operation This Fire.
0THEE INTERESTING LABOR ITEMS
It was rumored around labor headquarters
yesterday that a movement was on foot to
boycott Chinese laundries throughout the
two cities. The movement probably had its
inception from the action ot the members of
the Cigarmakers International Union No.
107, at Erie, who passed a resolution several
weeks age imposing a fine of $5 npon any
member of the union who patronized the
Chinamen. The other unions are taking
the matter up, and they threaten to exter
minate the Chinese in that city. Already
the influence of the boycott is being felt,
and several of the Mongolians have re
moved from the town.
In Pittsburg alone there are 68 Chinese
laundries, which give employment to 681
men. Their business is constantly increasing,
and a great portion of it comes from wage
workers who are members of labor organi
zations. By passing union laws against tbe
laundries it is expected that they will be
driven out of the business, and the latter
taken up by Americans.
CIGAKMAKEES TAKE NO ACTION.
A meeting of the Pittsburg cigarmakers
was held last night in Labor Hall. It was
expected that they would take some action
in the matter and carry out the idea of their
Erie brethren, but after the meeting they
stated they had done nothing about it Cor
responding Secretory George H. Konig, of
the assembly, said :
"I think the action of the "Erie cigar
makers is commendable, and something of
the sanre kind should be done in this city.
So far ve have not taken any action against
the Chinamen. It only requires someone to
make, the first move, when all the other
unions will follow them in the suppression
of the Chinese shops. Everyone knows
that thev are of no benefit to the communitv.
and to patronize them is against the spirit
of the laws of unionism. I cannot say when
we will take the matter up."
Master Workman Boss, of D. A. No. 3,
said: "I heard some talk about boycotting
the Chinese, but have not heard how it was
to be done. Any Local Assembly can take
the matter up, and present it to the District
In order to get it before ail the trades unions
it would probably first be given to the
Trades Council for indorsement Then the
unions could do as' they choose with it
A NOVEL QUESTION.
"The question is a novel one, and has
never come up before. I see that the Trades
Council of St Louis inaugurated a war
against the shops some weeks ago, and it
is being prosecuted with vigor, Some of
the Chinamen lost so much trade that they
had to leave the town ior other places. This
city is being overrun with the Chinamen,
and beyond patronizing the market they do
not benefit the town by their presence.
None of them become citizens, and it. is
well known that they hoard their money
to spend it at home. With $3,000 or 4,WU
they can retnrn to China and live in plenty.
While they are here they spread their views
among the depraved youth who come into
contact with them. Their laundries, too,
are not a benefit iu any way. They charge
the highest price for doing work and do not
spare people when they are in a hurry."
It was impossible last'evening to find who
was behind the boycott movement here, but
it is probable that the Trades Council may
take some action in the matter.

Another meeting of the committee having
in charge the Marvin secret boycott was
held last night Reports were read from
different committees representing trades
unions showing the progress of the work.
One committee reported that they learned
that the factory was onjy running three
days per week. This was caused by poor
business lost by the grocers withdrawing
their patronage. In one ward alcne in
Allegheny the committee reported over 20
customers had been taken front tho firm.

river met yesterday in the office of the Pitts
"bnrgh and Southern Coal Company. The
object of the meeting was to consider the
action of the Louisville Bridge Company

held about the latter, but nothing was done.
The negotiations, it was stated, are still go

met last night, and again refused the ad
vance in pay and reduction of Satnrday
hours. The reports showed all the master
shoers standing firm.
SHOT WHILE ASLEEP.
William A. Smith Murders His Wife In a
Cold-Blooded manner Ho Makes a
Feint at Suicide.
About 1:30 yesterday morning William
A. Smith killed his wife by shooting her
through the head at their residence, 121
Pulton street The shot was fired while
Mrs. Smith was sleeping and the burns of
the powder on the left temple showed that
the murder was a most deliberate one.
Smith then fired three shots apparently very
carefully at himself, all being flesh wounds
and none of them promising very fatal re
sults. He notified his neighbor, Bobert
Bagaley, an officer of the police force, about
7 a.m. yesterday, that he wanted a police
man, and while Bagaley went out in search
of an officer on duty, Mrs. Bagaley went
into the room of the Smiths and found the
woman deag and Smith very faint from loss
He was removed to Mercy Hospital, and
his wounds pronounced not dangerous, the
one in the head making only a slight scalp
wound, and the two on his left side only
showing how carefully he avoided any vital
bull's-eye in his self-chosen target.
Not so was it with his unfortunate wife,
whose experience matrimonially disproves
the proverb that second thoughts are best,
as Smith was her second husband, she hav
ing married a man named Turner eight year?
ago, who was accidentally drowned. She
had been married to Smith only about 15
months, and had been persecuted by him
through jealousy ever since she formed the
alliance. She left him about seven months
ago and went home to her mother's to live,
but was reconciled through his persuasion,
and returned to his bed and board only to
meet her death.
Dr. J. Guy McCandless yesterday after
noon made a post mortem'examination of
the woman at the morgue. The ball which
struck her on the left temple, split on the
bone and was found in two pieces lodged in
the skull. At midnight Smith was reported
from the Mercy Hospital as doing as well as
could be expected, and better than he de
served. The inquest will be held at 11 A.
M. to-day on the remains of his victim.
A MYSTERIOUS FIRE
Damages Captain McCloskey's Stock of
Yarn and Silk Goods.
A fire broke out in the third story of

key will lose $1,500 on his damaged goods.
The origin of the fire is a mystery. When
McCloskey tried to pull the box opposite his
place he foend the keyhole stuffed with dirt,
and had to use a stone. The waiting room
of the Citizens' Traction line adjoining the
building was slightly damaged. The fire
men did great work.

Church, Allegheny. The subject of the dis
course was, "The Negro Bace; Why it Dif

Bev. G. V. Holliday took the chair, and
briefly introduced the lecturer to his

speak on his subject under two heads: First
as to the negro race being of common parent
age with the whites, and, secondly, as to the
scientific causes why the negroes gradually
changed from their original color to their
The Caucasian races were in the habit of
villifying, and often, of persecuting, the
negro, justifying such actions on the ground
that the two peoples are not of common
origin. That this was a fallacy, holy writ
would prove to all believers. To the scep
tical another form of argument must be
used, namely, the scientific As to the
Bible proofs of the descent of black and
white from the same parents, they were
numerous. The whole story of Noah, with
his cursing of the unhappy Canaan, and the
wonderful support which the whole legend
receives from the ancient historian s,inregard
to dates, etc., left very little doubt as to its
ANCIENT MIGHTY ETHIOPIANS.
The reverend lecturer then proceeded to
describe the gradual migration of the chil
dren of Canaan into Africa. He enlarged
upon the fact that so many of the mighty
men of old, with whose name and fame the
world is familiar, were of the cursed race of
Canaan. Nimrod was Canaan's son. The
proud dynasty of the Pharoahs, under the
shadow of whose power the Shemitics were
forced to cower, were likewise sprung from
Canaan. Egypt under Canaanite rule was
a country where the arts and sciences were
cultivated in all their perfection. Why
should not the Afro-American of to-day
make his race tamous in the same glorious
paths trodden by his forefathers?
Having quoted extensively from theBible
in support or the Canaan theory, Mr. Tay
lor passed on to the scientific division of his
leoture. He said: "To the skeptic there
are other proofs of our common origin with
the white man. We know that man's
growth, complexion and health depend
largely on the locality in which he lives,
and the peculiar kind of food which that lo
cality produces. It is my theory that the
sun, and the heat that it gives forth, are the
true causes of the Canaanite's change
from white to black. Cast your
eye over the three great continents
of the Old World. In Europe the
climate is temperate, but grows hotter to
ward the south. Consequently we find that
in the north of Europe the people are light
complexioned, while in the south they are
of swarthy skin. In Asia it is the same.
The southern portion, through which the
equator passes, nroduces the Hindoo races.
all of whom are blacks. Africa, which lies
in the hottest part of the globe, also pro
duces black men. Had the sons of Canaan
settled in Europe, and the children of
Japhet in Atrica, we negroes might have
been Southern slaveholders, and the domi
neering Caucasians our slaves." .
COLOR IN THE CUTICLE.
Mr. Taylor then pointed out that every
man was possessed of three skins. The
first skin, or cuticle, and the third skin, or
cutis vera, were colorless. It was the mid
dle skin which gave the coloring matter.
This second skin was dinted with little cells,
and in these cells was stored a limpid fluid.
Under the cuticle of a white man this se
creted fluid was mixed with a colorless
liquid, and produced a red tinge. In the
Mongolian this mixing fluid was partially
dried up, and abrownishcolorwasproduced.
In the negro it was dried up altogether by
the tremendons power of the sun and turned
into black. If blood were left in a saucer
till the moisture had evaporated out of it,
it would become black. It was just the
same with the coloring matter of man. The
sun had turned the sons of Canaan from
white men to negroes. As to the hair of tbe
African, its crispness was due to the same
cause heat. If a Caucasian put his hair
close to a fire it also would shrivel up and
The flat noses with which negroes were
usually depicted would soon be things of
the past. "Their cause," said Mr. Taylor,
"is to be sought in recent times. Our lath
ers and grandfathers, when enduring the
horrors of slavery, were compelled to carry
heavy burdens on their heads. The weight
pressed on the frontal bone, which in turn
pressed down the delicate construction of
the nose, spreading that feature out over
the face. In the native African races the
fiat nose is uncommon, except among na
tions who have become slaves of their more
The leeturer then announced the subject
of his discourse concluded, remarking that
it was notby the color and form that man
was to be judged. It was the soul within
which was the true index of his character.
The negro race was waxing stronger every
day, thriving under the very branches ot
the upas trees of prejudice and persecution.

serving as a domestic in the Fifteenth ward.
A few days ago the gentleman for whom
Stella is .working applied to Agent O'Brien,
of the Humane Society, for protection from
her father, saying that he was threatening
her with harm if she did not pay over to
him her earnings. Mr. O'Brien refnsed, for
personal reasons, to take the case, and re
ferred the gentleman to Agent Dean, of the
Anti-Cruelty Society, who began a vigorous
On Wednesday an information was filed
before Alderman Porter, of the Fifteenth
ward, by Mr. Dean, against Michael J.
Dougherty, for cruelty to his daughter,
Stella, in depriving her of support Mr.
Dougherty is married to his second wife,
and has six children in all. He is at present
a time keeper for the Malleable Iron Works,
at the corner of Smallman and Thirty-

Agent Dean says that last Saturday after
noon Dougherty went to the house where
Stella is employed as a domestic and de
manded her wages. The money was not
paid to him and he left with threats.
On Sunday he wrote the following letter
to his daughter, sending it by a smaller

My Dear Daughter Stella I, your
father, when you were born, and yonr mother,
that is now dead, and for three long weeks after
your birth, kept you alive and struggled this
life, through thick and thin, to take care of
you the best I could. But when a little bit of
poverty struck your loving father you left bim

shan't be so. I demand you to eive up yonr

Mr. Dougherty was arraigned last evening,
at 8 o'clock, before Alderman Porter. He
and his wife, who is the stepmother of the
girl, were present. Neither party was ready
for trial, and it was stated to the Alderman
that Miss Stella Dougherty, the prosecutor's
witness, was sick abed. The case was con
tinued until next Thursday evening between
7 and 8 o'clock.
STILL ANOTHER Y1CT11T.
John Morgan Dies in Pittsburg From Johns
town Flood Injuries.
John W. Morgan, whose remains were
taken away from Pittsburg to Johnstown in
a coffin yesterday, was a victim of the late
flood. His experience in the flood was a
series of thrilling escapes. He was in the
water for 12 hours. While the water was
filling his house rapidly, he, with his fam
ily, ascended into the upper floor, but it was
but a few minutes before they were again
within the power of the waters. Just then
a house came alongside their home. The
roof of the floating house was a little beneath
their window, and they thought it best to
trust themselves on the roof rather than
meet what seemed to be an inevitable death.
After floating about for 12 hours they
were rescued just as day began to dawn.
Mr. Morgan was bronght to Pittsburg, suf
fering acute pain throughout his svstem.
He was taken to the Homeopathic Hospital,
but he only remained there one evening.
He was transferred from the hospital to his
daughter's home, corner of South and
Thirty-eighth streets, Lawrenceville. He
suffered intense agony for six weeks, which
culminated in a paralytic stroke from which
he died. .
Mr. Morgan was 62 years of age. A re
markable fact connected with the family of
the deceased is, that he had three married;
daughters, with their husbands, one with
five children, another with two and one with
one child, beside a son married, yet all of
them passed through the raging waters and
