leading Citizens Hare Two
Plots Under Advisement
AKD ABE EAISLXG MOSEY.
One is 600 Acres at Heck's Eun, the
Other is On the Hill.
BOTH SPOTS AEi: VERY BEAUTIFDL.
The Plans Will Soon he Presented to the
People for Their Approval.
HIS OSLI A SMALL MATTER OF $42,0
For some years past the residents of the
Southside ha e keenly felt tbe want of a
public resort. From time to time spasmodic
attempts Lave been made to interest the
people In a park project, which always
failed because the citizens ere indifferent
or lacked an appreciation of the necessity of
this want. At last there is au awaking
from the lethargy which has so long existed.
The idea is assuming practical shape.
Before the Southside people two schemes
will be presented from some of the in
fluential citizens who have the welfare of
the community at heart. It is said no part
of Pittsburg lrom a hygienic standpoint so
much demands a park as this part of the
An interview was sought last night with
Dr. Thomas to ascertain the feeling of the
people and the nature of the movement on
this all important scheme. He said:
"We have been agitating for a long time
the necessity of procuring a park. About
eight years ago, at the summit of Mount
Oliver Incline, a large tract of land of CO
acres was offered to the residents for the
sum (if I remember correctly) of 30,000,
but by some narrow-sighted policy the offer
was not taken up. and the ground was sold
in lots. The aggregate worth ot this piece
of ground at the present is at least 350,
000. HE IMPORTUNED IK YAIS.
"At the time the ground was slipping
through our fingers I importuned the
owners of the incline plane to purchase it,
and lay it out as a public park. Had they
done this they could have cleared in one
year by traffic the purchase money. How
ever, the scheme has fallen through, and
itbehooes us to cast away our swaddling
clothes, and come up to the nineteenth
century idea. Tor various reasons we must
have a'park. Tne Southside owing to its
closely packed manufactories, calls for im
mediate action to be taken.
"At the head of the Castle Shannon In
cline there is a fine property belonging to
Mr. Bailey, which is about CO acres in ex
tent. The ground now is a farm, and would
be available for park purposes. It has a
commanding view from the top, and is in
everyway suited for the purposes we want
it. It is also easily accessible. At one side
is Beltzho over, opposite Allentown, and to
the right Mt. "Washington. I feel safe in
saving if this land could be acquired for
50,000 or $00,000, the Southside will see a
realization ot its dream. "
THE SECOND TLAT TTXTOLDED.
The other scheme before the Southside as
told by a prominent doctor who withholds
his name, but v,ho speaks with enthusiasm
on the subject, is as follows "We have
been watching the property of the-'late
James S. Hays at Becks Bun.
It is situated just at the city limit. When
the traction road is completed it will run to
the ground. There is also river accommo
dations and the Pittsburg, Virginia
and Charleston road has a station
at Lucas, which would adjoin
it. Running parallel with the
river is a promenade with a view unsur
passed in Western Pennsylvania. The eye
can sweep up the Monongahela as far as the
city which bears its name. At every point
scenery ot marvelous beauty onensup before
the delighted gaze. The whole place is
wonderfully picturesque. In natural beauty
it outrivals Central Park, New York. There
are splendid ravines, small lakes, wooded
walks and a maze of the most exquisite
SOME BARRIEKS, IN THE WAT.
The only barrier that stands in the way
now is the number of heirs who conjointly
have an interest in this part of the estate.
"Whenever it is released a number of promi
nent Southside manufacturers, in conjunc
tion with the people, are willing to come to
the front and purchase it for the use of the
people residing on this side of the river.
This property, which contains about COO
acres, can be had for about 42,000!

A BOOBY OF A BOY.
lie Bellows Because Ho Couldn't Learn His
IiMsons nod Huns Awny Sad Case of a
Woman I.cfl by Her Hatband.
A boy named Jacob Meitzler, 18 years of
age, arnvcd in the city yesterday morning
with a large valise and a copious supply of
tears. He told a very pathetic story, but
failed to excite sympathy in the generally
susceptible bosoms of Chief Brown's Finest.
He said his home was at 21 Fairview ave
nue. Newark, N. J.", whence he was sent to
St. Francis Seminary, at Bay View, a sort
of Southside to Milwaukee, last week. His
parents intended him to study for the
priesthood, but after three days' study the
lad thought the classics were too much for
him, the effect of Latin on him being his
eyes sore. He admitted also getting very
homesick, and thought the seminary pies
were not like what his mother used to make.
He concluded he would start for home, and
resume the investigation ot maternal pies
while forsaking those into the eye-burning
and obnoxious Latin.
He just had 10 in his pocket with
which he paid his passage to Chicjgo and
thence to Pittsburg, putting liis trust in
Providence to get through to New Jersey,
where he expects to meet the reception of
the prodigal son, though his tear-stained
face showed surface indications rather ofa
dread of backing up aeainst a shingle in his
father's hands applied where it would do
the most good. The police bureau will in
vestigate the boy's story and communicate
with his parents.
Another traveler, whose case is certainly
more likely to provoke sympathy, is Mrs.
Beasley, now in the Central station await
ing transportation to New York, where she
expects to interest the English Consul in
her case sufficiently to get htr transporta
tion across the ocean.
The woman came from England with her
husband 18 months ago and was deserted by
him in Cincinnati last month. Lett help
less in a strange country with a little infant
depending on her for support, the poor
woman did not know where to turn. She
sold out the little furniture which her faith
less husband had left, paid the rent of their
rooms lor last month, and applying to the
Cincinnati authorities for passage home,
was, forwarded to Pittsburg. The case will
be submitted to the Department of Charities

days was his sentence. John Benley got 30
days for blowing a police whistle on Third

SOUTHSIDE PLANS FOR AID.
A Syndicate Being Formed to Raise $20,000
for tbe Hospital.
A quiet movement is on foot on the
Southside in behalf of the proposed erection
ot a new hospital. The present building is
wholly inadequate for the wants of that
rapidly growing part of the city, an,d this
opinion is shared in by a large number of
well-disposed gentlemen who are willing to
aid the scheme financially.
A member of the Board of Di
rectors of the Southside Hospital
said yesterday that steps would
soon be taken to foment matters toward the
beginning of such a movement. He said
that it was proposed to form a syndicate of
40 gentlemen, who will guarantee 500 each,
and the 20,000 thus obtained is to be used
for the purchase of a site for the new
hospital. The Legislature will then be
called upon for aid, and together with
private contributions a hospital worthy of
the Southside, can be erected and main
tained. Ex-Alderman Ammon, of the Southside,
was also interviewed yesterday, and he said:
"While I have a hesitancy in pushing
myself into such matters, still I believe it
can be accomplished, I am ready at any
time to help, and I am willing to be one of
the 40 citizens to contribute 500."
Several available sites for the proposed
new hospital have already been examined
by the projectors of this movement.
NO DOUBT ABOUT I1IS TEK1L
Eminent Lawyers Say That Mr. Pearson Is
Mayor for Four Years.
There appears to be little or no foundation
for a dispute relative to the length of the
term of office of the Mayor of Allegheny.
The lawof June 2G, 1885, says that the Mayor
of a city of the third class shall serve for
four years and shall not be eligible for a
second term. The operation of this law de
pends upon the classification of Allegheny.
Mayor Pearson has seenred the opinions
of such lawyers as J. Scott Ferguson, ex
Solicitor William B. Rodgers, James S.
Young, T. Walter Day and others, all of
whom agree that Allegheny is a city ot the
third class and that Mayor Pearson's term
of office will not expire until April, 1891.
City Treasurer David Macferron, who will
pay the salary, likewise holds that Alle
gheny belongs to the third class and that the
Mayor's term is for four years. Mayor Pear
son says that he does not know of any man,
whose opinion is valuable, who maintains
to tbe contrary. The candidates for the suc
cession are reported all to accept that view
of the case.

PESTS ON THE WING.
Pittsburg is Visited by One of the
flagnes of Ancient Egypt,
riETY OP WORSHIPERS DISTURBED.
The Stories Which Were Hatched in Swarms
Yaried the Stings.
HOW ELECTRICITY ACTED ON FLIES
There are no more locally loyal citizens in
the world than th'ose of Pittsburg, but the
sanguinely boastful of them could not say
last night with any degree of truth: "There
are no flies on Pittsburg." The plague of
Egypt seemed to have struck "Western Penn
sylvania, and the sins of the Egyptians
were visited on the skins of the Pittsburgers.
The flies, about the siz e of a fairly propor
tioned immigrant flea, were everywhere.
They invaded the police station, and ill
manneredly looked over the docket while
the sergeant was making an entry. They
entered the cells and left with a boldness
which defied arrest and laughed as they
buzzed into the offi cers' ears that, "locks do
not a prison make, nor iron bars a cage."
They invaded the sanctuary and knocked
the bald-headed man's devotions out in the
first round, who could listen to Ingersoll's
arguments with undisturbed orthodoxy for
years. They daringly lighted on the backs
of ladies' necks and tickled the primmest
spinsters in the congregation under the chin
with impunity. The martyrdom these ladies
suffered was to be pitied. Afraid to attract
attention by slapping or scratching to re
lieve the tittlatory effects of the impious
though diminutive demons, they sat, and
only by the twitching of their facial
muscles was the misery they were under
SO HELP FOB ANYBODY.
Even the preacher did not escape, and re
versed the text by swallowing gnats, proba
bly in the dearth of camels. If the number
of prayers in all the churches last night at
all equaled that of the flies, and were all di
rected like the last general prayer meetings
in favor of the Constitutional amendment,
nothing could withstand such a prayer test
and prohibition would be a dead certainty.
The arc lights were clothed in their usual
brilliancy and nnusual flies. The horizon
tal bars supporting the lights were increased
in thickness an inch or more by the swarms
of flies which sought a secure roost, oblivi
ous of the present discussion, whatever the
alternating current or some other electric
wave was more likely to sweep them into
the fly eternity. But they were probably
notalraid, as there was an eternity of flies to
meet the contingency.
Of course the phenomenal liar was the re
sult of the other phenomenon and stories
began to fly thick and fast in rivalry to the
other flying pest. There was the man who
arrived from Altoona and said the train had
been kept a half hour late at the Walls sta
tion grade by the flies, attracted by the
headlight, greasing the wheels so they
turned on the track. The man who slipped
under every electric light by stepping upon
the piles of flies, hatched to make an elec
tric holiday, was. suspected ot knowing more
about the locales of speak-easies than most
of the city constables who responded to the
THE MOLES LAID DOWN.
The street car passengers, whose motive
mule power insisted on lying down and
rolling over, thus causing the passengersto
miss church services, were classified with
the East End man who was on the cable car
which stopped at Lawrenceville through
the conduit filling with flies, which greased
the grip until it was useless.
Altogether, to use the classical observa
tion of the newsboys, Pittsburg had a fly
time last night, but where the little wretches
came from, or what caused such an abnormal
increase iu the population not contemplated
in any census reports no one could be found
who could tell. The best informed people
consulted said the wondertul increase and
visitation of the winged pests are due to the
recent warm and muggy weather which
lostered the nuisances by swarms. The
wind during the prevalence of the fly
shower was blowing gently from the south
cast. IS OUT OP POLITICS.

Additional Teachers to be Employed at the
Soho Parochial School Other Schools
The plain practical sermon delivered by
Rev, Father Corcoran, pastor of St. Agnes
Church at Soho, two weeks ago yesterday,on
the subject of Parochial Schools, had the ef
fect of increasing the attendance at the
schools. At the several masses yesterday,
Father Corcoran announced to his congrega
tion that the enrollment of the pupils was
over 700, or 200 more than when the school
Father Corcoran stated that he found it
necessary to employ two additional teachers.
This makes nine altogether who &re teach
ing at the school. He also finds it necessary
to employ a principal who will be a first
class female teacher and scholar. She will
be placed at the head of the school and
Father Corcoran will assist her.
By the employment of ten teachers and
himself, Father Corcoran will have the
largest parochial school in the city. At St.
Paul's Cathedral schools there are less than
1,000 pupils altogether out of about 1.500
families. In Father Corcoran's parish there
are about 200 families.
Father Corcoran urged the poor people to
send their children to the schools, no matter
whether they can afford to pay for the sup
port of the schools or not He thanked the
people for the response to his appeal, and
said if it was necessary they would enlarge
their present quarters to accommodate the
The teachers 'of the Fourteenth ward
school, which is next to St. Agnes' School

attended the Bellefield school have with

About one year ago teachers were dropped
in the Mount Albion schools for this same
reason. "When St. Kynan's school was
opened the Catholic parents withdrew their
children from tbe public school and sent
them to Father Briley. The Fourteenth
ward teachers hope that renewed attendance
will obviate the necessity of dropping any

that a mission would be given by the Paul
ist fathers in his church, beginning the first

who were at the Cathedral several months
AN ALTAR SOCIETY FORMED.
Tbe Ladles of St. Paul's Have Organized
The St. Paul's Cathedral Altar Society
was organized yesterday.
A meeting of the ladies of the congrega
tion of St. Paul's was held yesterday after
noon in the basement of the church for the
purpose of taking steps to decorate and
maintain the altars of that edifice. Rev.
Dr. S. "Wall, rector of the church, presided.
It was decided to form an association, and
the following officers were elected: Presi
dent, Miss Mary McElroy; Vice President,
Miss Mary Marks; Treasurer, Miss Katie
Lang, and Secretary, Miss Katie Caulfield.
When the present work of decorating the
church is completed it will be necessary to
have new vestments for the altars. Any
member of the congregation can become a
member of the association by the payment
of 1 per year. The money will be devoted
to the purchase of flowers, tapers, etc. A
committee will be appointed each month to
take charge ot the work. Heretofore this
has been done by individuals, mainly by
the Misses McElroy. In every large city
the churches have altar societies, but for
years there has been no such organization
The scaffolding ot the church will be com

two weeks time to erect the scaffolding.

The Yexed Problem Discussed From a
SOME COMMENTS ON BIBLE BEADING
Rev. W. S. Williams preached to the
Universalis! congregation last night in the
meeting rooai over the gas office on Sixth
avenue, on "The Public School Question."
The text was from Ecclesiastes vii., 12,
"Wisdom Is Our Defense." He prefaced
his remarks with some historical quotations
and allusions. He said that A. D. 1483,
which witnessed the plea of Columbus to
his royal master nnd mistress for money,
ship nnd men to discover the unknown
land, marked the opening of a new epoch in
the birth of Martin Luther.
Coming down to modern times he said
this Government was lounded not on a
creed, a religion, a body or an organization,
but on God. Every Government which had
been organized before had upheld a State
religion, with us there was the most unre
stricted freedom in religious beliefs founded
upon the eternal God. Any sect, body or
organization which attempts to interfere or
assumes to dictate in opposition to this
liberty secured by the constitutional fathers
is a traitor. Tbe perpetuity of our civil
and religious liberty is founded upon onr
common schools, and whoever resists or op
presses our schools or deprives a large
number of inhabitants of the privilege of
attending them, is a traitor and should be
punished as such.
SOME DERIVE NO BENEFITS.
Every man should assist in paying toward
the support of our schools. There are a
large number of people who, although not
Catholics, derive no personal benefit from
the schools. Some send their children to
other institutions of learning, very many
have no children, yet they pay cheerfully.
He then reviewed the history of Catholic
countries. Trying to oust the Bible from
our public schools was only the entering of
the Catholic wedge. The second wedge was
when Catholics took their children to separ

I ME. LOCKE'S SERMOK.
Liscners to Rev. C. E. Locke at the
Smithield M. E. Church last evening heard
.i vigoous sermon, upon tbe subject of the
Bibloin the public schools,, with an inci
dental attack upon the attitude of the
Cathqic Church in regard to free school
The text was Proverbs 12: "The fear of
the lord is the beginning of wisdom."
Afterj enlarging upon the necessity of a
Christan education in order to subserve the
best iiterests of citizenship, the speaker
stated hat, while he did not desire to stand
as ariarraigner of the Catholic church, as
the later had put itself in an indefensible
positipi by its illogical opposition to the
reading of 'the Bible in the public sohools,
he mibt say something in regard to the
church in question. (1
He said: "The Romanists make a con
tinujl fight against the use of the Bible in
pubic schools, and yet protest that they
pust educate their children in parochial
schools in order to make sure of the relig
ions elements in the education. Conld any
thing be more absurd? Tbe parochial school
b a menace to the liberties of a free people.
?here are over 3,000 parochial schools in
nis country, ana at mis yeij time several
ire being built in this city. I seriously look
:orthedav to coihe when a national law
vill be passed and enforced against the
larochial school system. These objectors to
he Bible in tbe public school are noten
litled to respect, for their objections are dic
tated by prejudices in favor of the ignorance
if the dark ages.
A MINORITY SHOULD NOT EULE.
"It is the general opinion of the Christian
,-orld that the Bible should be read in pub
ic schools, and a minority, however de
rmiued, should not be allowed to obtain
le slightest foothold. The atmosphere oi
le (schoolroom should be clarified by the
: wading of God's word. All Christians
lould deem it a paramount dnty to protect
le Bible against those who are the enemies
four souls. The Romanists have always
een secretive. Mystification is a cardinal
ature of their creed, and to have the
ounger generation grow up in utter ignor-
nee of the teachings of the Bible would
: jem to be their objective point."
Rev. Mr. Locke read a number of extracts
;-oru the utterances of Romanist ecclesi
astics, and closed with a prayer in which he
tVanked the Ureator lor free speech, religious
liberty and a free press; offering petitions
lor "unbelievers who think they are liberal
but are most bigoted of all people," and
"any organizations arrayed against the
reading of God's word in public schools."
A large audience was present.
BIG CROWDS EXPECTED.
Tbe Exposition Buildings Were the Center
Ihe flattering attendance at the Exposi
tion last week indicates that the coming
week will bring surprises to both managers
and the public in the way of crowds. Every
thing was quiet about the buildings yester
day as no person was allowed inside except
a couple of trustworthy men, as grods to the
value of many hundred thousand dollars
were easily accessible, and it was thought
best to allow positively no one inside.

ley Qnnrreled nnd tbe Itnllnn Plunged a
Knife lo Young Harris' Thigh The let
ter Is Not Seriously Hart.
Young America's blood is up, or at least
that part of it which courses through tbe
veins of the newsboy element, at the fact
that a native" member of that fraternity was
stabbed with a pocket knife in the hands of
an Italian boy not yet amonth in the conn
try. The affair occurred about noon yester
day at the corner of Fifth avenne and Lib
erty street. Both boys are only about 11
years of age, but the Italian, whose name is
Joe Annitze, is much the larger and
stronger. The wounded boy is named
Henry Harris, and lives at 421 Fifth ave
nue. The quarrel commenced over the Italian
boy chasing Harris' younger brother, with
whom Annitze had had au altercation, and
when Harry interfered the juvenile bravo
resorted to his national resource, the stiletto,
or its substitute, the knile, which he
plunged into Harris' thigh, making an
ngly but not dangerous wound. Officer
Garrett Crossan arrested the boys, and after
Harris' injuries were dressed he started for
home. The Italian boy was held for a hear
ing this morning.
Shortly alter the affair occurred a reporter
metyoung Henry on the street. "Dovou
want ad item, mister?" he asked. "Yes."
"I got stabbed. Dere was a dago done it-"
"A dago stabbed you? Where?" "Right
dere in de leg. He made a big hole, too,
hut I got him in de police station. I'm
goin' to tell my mother. She's goin to
make him pavler it. Igness I'll make
him pay $21. Wouldn't you?" "Yes, that's
not too much."
"Say, mister, will he have to pay de
money to me or de feller in the police sta
tion?A The reporter could not answer that ques
tion authoritatively, and Henry pursued his
Early yesterday evening the father of Joe
Annitze, the boy who stabbed Henry Harris,
applied for his release at the Central station
and was told $50 would have to be put np as
a forfeit. He sallied forth and apparently
canvassed the Italian colony, tor an hour
after or so he returned with eight other de
scendants of the Cssars, and handed Ser
geant David Myers a bundle done np in a
blue checked handkerchief. It proved to
contain (14 in bills and some $32 in small
change, quarters, dimes and nickles, for tbe
reason probably that small money was good
enough security for a small boy. After a
loborions count Inspector McAleese con
cluded as the full (50 had not been raised to
accept $45 and Joseph was turned loose. He
came ont of his cell and laughingly greeted
his father and countrymen, who looked
solemn, however, as if debating whether the
$15 worth ot boy was a good investment
The boy is very stout and rtrong for bis
years and seems to feel no regret for what
he has done.

A ?EW MINOR INDUSTRIAL MATTJiS
Pittsburg can now boast of another in
dustry which has hitherto been a failure fa
this country. It is- ihe manufacture of
enameled brick, and the makers are con
gratulating themselves alter a year's patUst
experiments. iThey have erected a building
which covers whole square, and the
new industry will give employment to hun
dreds ot people.
The firm who "will manufacture the brick
is Dixon, Woods & Co., at the comer of
South' Thirteenth and Jane streets. For
nearly 15 months they have 'been lecrectly
experimenting on red enamel, and at last
they were successful in producing a brick
equal to any manufactured in the Old
A poor quality of red enameled bricks
has been made in this country, out of or--
dinary brick, clay, but when exposed to the
weather, the heat they had been subjected to
wonld crack and crisle them. The sew
brick is composed of the best fireclay, and is
said to be perfectly fireproof. It is also
alleged to be impervious to acids, damp,
etc., and suffer no deterioration: from any
kind of exposure for any length of time, is
being practically imperishable.
The firm, experimented month after month,
and after spending thousands of dollars,
they were about to give it up. At last they
succeeded, but their process of making the
brick is a secret.
The best enameled brick in the world is
made at Leeds, England, and those manu
factured by tbe Southside firm are said to
be their equal inevery respect. Nearly all
the enameled brick used in this country is
imported. Last May the Superintendent
of the Congressional Library building in
Washington tried to place an order for 650.-
000 of the bricks in this country, but could J
nnu no person wno coma mate tnem. xne
contract was then given to the English
firm. In Europe mostof the buildings are
now being made of enameled brick, and on
account of tneir beauty and durability tbe
bricks are coming into use in this country.
By not absorbing moisture they are recom
mended by physicians to be placed where it
is necessary to study sanitary conditions.
The firm will start with a capacity of
25,000 bricks per week and will increase it
THE W0BE PROGRESSING.
A B. & O. Director Talks on the West
Virginia Extension of tbe Road.
One of the directors of the Baltimore and
Ohio Railroad while in the city several
days ago said the work on the extension of
the old Pittsburg and Connellsville road,
which extension will be called the Oak
land and State Line Railroad, is progress
ing rapidly. The new" road will ran from
Continence to a point 17 miles west of Deer
Park. This was the original intention, but
the road will be extended to Deer Park and
eventually to Oakland.
The Baltimore and Ohio Company have
leased the new line in order to make a con
nection with the Chesapeake and Ohio.
From Confluence the road will run up tbe
Youghiogheny River in Garrett county to
a 9,000 acre tract of mineral and coal lands
called Yough Manor. It will go up Hone
shoe Rnn through West Virginia, and also
toucn tne west Virginia uentral road. I
This will make a . new Eastern outlet lor I
