SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, .1889:
Just 1,300 Cars Tied Up on
the Junction Bailroad.
TRAFFIC BADLY DELATED.
The P. & W. Leaves the Junction and
B. & 0. Eoads in the Lurch.
MANAGER M'DOXALD EXPLAINS
Ana Claims the Coke Strike is Responsible
for the Trouble.
20T ABLE TO HANDLE THE BUSINESS
Trouble is brewing between the Pittsburg
Junction Railroad and the authorities of the
Pittsburg and "Western. For some time
past freight cars have been accumulating at
an extraordinary rate in the yards of the
former road, and also along the siding of
the Baltimore and Ohio Company. It ie
claimed that it is almost impossible to get
the Pittsburg and "Western to receive any
west-bound freight, and that if the blockade
continues to grow in size, as it is now doing,
business will be practically suspended over
the Junction road.
An idea of the size of the blockade can
only be gathered from an actual visit to the
yards of the interested companies. The
Junction is a special sufferer. Long trains
of cars filled with various kinds of freight
lie on its sidings, cover the bridge and in
and around "Willow Grove extend as far as
the eye can see. The Baltimore and Ohio
railroad has considerable freight laid up at
Glenwood and other points in and around
Tne coke men seem to be largely inter
ested in this matter, but they are very re
ticent. They are unwilling to offend the
officials of any of the roads concerned, and
while several of them were interviewed
none would allow the publication of their
COKE SlEX FIGHT SHT.
They admitted that they had been notified
by Superintendent "Ward, of the Junction,
of the existence of a blockade, but professed
to be ignorant of how far they were con
cerned in it One of them stated positively
that he had 100 cars of coke lying there for
over a week, and with little prospect of
getting it to his consignees in the proper
""Why!" he said, "cars are coming into
the Junction yards at the rate of from 125
to 200 per day. while the Pittsburg and
"Western is only taking from 25 to 50 away
in the same time. It would be a very nice
problem for Eomeone to solve when the
blockade will be ended, if this manner of
decreasing it continues."
The first intimation of the existence of a
blockade came from authorities high up in
the Junction road. They were highly in
dignant at the way in which affairs were
being conducted. According to their state
ments abont 1,300 cars, loaded with all
kinds of freight, are now lying in the yards
of the Pittsburg Junction and Baltimore
and Ohio roads, and that cars are constantly
being received more rapidly than the Pitts
burg and Western handles them. The
blockade began, they sav, about two months
ago, and has been Bteadily increasing ever
Superintendent Patton, of the B. & O.,
agreed in placing the number of blockaded
cars at 1,300, and places the blame on the
Pittsburg and Western officials. He was
not inclined to talk very much, stating sar
castically that it would take someone
thoroughly conversant with freight matters
to understand the situation. Something,
however, would have to be done, and the
sooner a change was made the better it
would be for all concerned.
H'DOXALD TAKES A HAlfD.
When Mr. McDonald, of the P. & W.
road, was approached by a Dispatch re
porter, he was outspoken In his views.
When asked if it was true that they were
only handling from 25 to 50 cars per day,
he said: "Well, people who make statements
like that generally have not much regard
for the truth. "i e have been moving nearly
100 cars for the Junction road every day,
and have only fallen below that number
when some accident has happened along the
"Of course quite a number of cars are
standing on the Junction tracks; in fact,
there is always a considerable number there
at all times. Some time ago the B. and O.
officials reported 750 tied up and there are
no more than that tied up at the present
time. This shows that we have since this
last report been handling the freight as fast
as it has been received. We cannot do im
possibilities. The grades on onr road are
very steep; we can only haul from 18 to 22
cars at a time, and we have only got 13
'engines to attend to this part of the work.
We will move these cars as soon as we can,
but our own peculiar business is more im
portant to us, and we are not going to suffer
in the meantime.
EESULT OF THE COKE STBIKE.
"The real facts in the matter are these:
During the strike in the coke regions,
quite a number of cars accumulated in these
regions. When it became known that H.
C. Prick intended to buy up as many coke
plants as possible, and the price of coke
was, therefore, in danger of going up, con
sumers became anxious to lay in a supply
of coke. The cars up there were hastily
loaded, and they were shipped on us so
rapidly that the blockade resulted. During
the months of July and August the Junc
tion road did a rushing business, and
of course the officials of that road
are anxious to make an much
money as possible. Now the Junction has
immense yards in which to store freight
while we are very deficient in that respect
We could take these cars off their hands
and put them on our road, but we would
stop utterly all locomotion along the line
by such an action. We are not doing any
"Our rates are one-fifth less on freight
this year than they formerly were, and still
our profits are much greater than before.
This proves that we must have handled an
increased tonnage, and the Junction is
among the ones benefited.. There is no
necessity for this kicking.
CABS LOADED WITH TAX BABE.
"Many of the blockaded cars are loaded
withtanbark for Allegheny City, and it is
often the custom to let these cars stand for
months before unloading them. Besides
we only make switch fees, that is El 50 per
car on all freight due Allegheny City, and
it would be follv to cxDert us to handle this
kind of business to the detriment of better
paying freight. We have endeavored to I
biac cuiuva hum uMa Juaua, niLliUUl
avail. Several new ones are being built
for the road, however, and they will be
ready in a month or two. When tbat time
comes we will be able to handle freight bet
ter and will be in less danger ot a block
ade." Tbe coke men do not credit the statement
that the strike and subsequent events are
responsible for the blockade. Besides, the
Junction officials state that very few of the
cars are loaded with tanbark,and that nearly
all the cars are not local but through ones.
Again, nearly three-fourths or the profits
or the Pittsburg and Western are L,ade on
freight brought over the Baltimore and
Ohio. It is hinted that this may be the
opening of a long-expected strnrirle betwepn
the two roads,and if such is the case a lively I

MAKING GREAT ARRANGEMENTS.
TIio State League of Republicans Clubs to
Gel a Roynt Welcome In Pittsburg
Attention to Every Detail.
The joint committee of the Americas,
Tariff and Young Men's Republican clubs
met last night to periect the lo'cal arrange
ments for the reception of the State League
ofEepublican clubs upon the 23th of Sep
tember. A full representation Was present
from each of the three local organizations
when Chairman Y. H. Lambert called the
meeting to order. The session of the com
mittee was not long, but considerable busi
ness was accomplished in the treatment of
reports from' sub-committees.
There haTe been some changes in the
composition of the sub-committees. The
list as given out by Secretary James W.
Prescott last night is as follows:
Reception and Hall A. C. Robinson, George
S. Houghton, W. D. Porter. L. Googins and A.

Finance A. J. Roenigk, John Dalzell, L.
Googins, A. C. Robinson and W. C Hagan.
Alter some discussion the report of the
Printing Committee on the Question of
badges was adopted. The delegates wili
wear red badges; the Committee of Arrange
ments white with silken fringe, and the
members of clubs will wear blue badges
beavilv gilt. It was also decided to engage
the G. A. E. Band of 25 pieces to furnish
the music It was stated that the steamer
Mayflower had been engaged for the entire
day. The subjectof edibles came up, but was
laid aside in order to secure an opinion from
the proper sub-committee. The matter of
decorating Lafayette Hall will be adjusted
between the State and local leagues, but as
surance is given that it will be hand
somely embellished. The admission
fee assessed is SI, the only proviso being
that the club belongs to the State League.
To guard against the possibility of lack of
information, Mr. Prescott states that letters
sent to P. O. box 135 will receive prompt at
tention from the Secretary.
Mr. Edwin Stuart, of Philadelphia,Presi
dent of the League, sent a letter to Mr.
Prescott stating that a number of speakers
of national reputation were under promises
to be present. The annual meeting bids
fair to be a great success. Another meeting
of the committee will be held next Wednes

Frank McClure, the G. A. E. six
footer, who bagged the Burgettstown postoffice
appointment recently over 12 competitors, was
in Pittsburg Friday last on his way home from
Gettysburg, Mr.JlcClure said that Washington
county was on the boom; that a lively fair
would be inaugurated on October 1, and that
the Burgettstown postoffice was doing so large
a business that it would shortly be in the
category of Presidental postoffices. He also
said that it was very foolish far anyone to
imagine that the G. A. R. would not resent the
treatment of Corporal Tanner by the President
and Secretary Noble. He bad heard almost
universal comment uon the haste with which
Tanner bad been bundled out of office, and the
only impression he bad gathered was that the
President should have made haste more slowly.
J. Friday, the contractor, has begun
work on the Smlthfield street bridge to build
the cable way addition. The bridge will be wid
ened, the additional construction being built
along the eastern side. On the eastern side of
the bridge the stone piers project over six feet
beyond the bridge itself, while on the western
side the bridge structure projects a considera
ble distance over the tops of the piers. The tops
of the piers on the eastern side,tberefore.allow
the addition of a width on that side sufficient
to accommodate the cable tracks. Stone cutters
and masons are now at work and more men will
be put on as rapidly as possinle.
j -Mrs. J. P. Maeder, sister and three
children got homo from Atlantic City yester
day. She states that their terror was almost
unendurable. They had plenty to eat, but at
one of the hotels the guests were forced to lire
a whole day on tomatoes. The grocers refused
to supply the hotels, as they got their pro
visions from Philadelphia, and are of no use to
the local grocers, "when descends on the At
lantic the gigantic storm wind of the cnuinar.
and when. Undward in his wrath, he scourges
the toiling surges, laden with seaweed from the
rocks," Mrs. Maeder thinks there are pleasauter
places than Atlantic City.
Adam Trautman, the well-known
Soutbsider, is expected home from Europe to
day, after a three months' tour of the conti
nent. His friends will remember that just
prior to his departure from this country for
Europe, he was suddenly taken ill, and some
alarm was lelt. He subsequently recovered
sufficiently to sail for Europe and the hope was
entertained that the sea voyage would restore
his health. Contrary to this expectation he re
turns home in an enfeebled condition. The
glorious climate of Pittsburg may do much
toward restoring his health.

BIG CITY PROJECTS.
A More Than Favorable Answer From

WORKS FINISHED OK IN PROGRESS
The general publio who read from day to
day of such a sewer being commenced, or
the paving ot such a street being completed,
rarely collates these announcements in the
aggregate, and considers what a vast amount
of city enterprises are pending or in course
of construction. Chief Bigelow, of the De
partment of Public Works, when asked yes
terday as the nature, number and status of
the various municipal enterprises now
under way or consideration, said gravely:
"That is a question which involves more
time on my part and space on yours than
either of us can afford. Name the public
works you wish information on and I
will give you the most and best in my
This was a staggerer, and feebly ransack
ing his memory, the querist, to gain time,
asked: "How about the parks?"
Chief Bigelow The park projects of
Pittsburg are all in good shape and promise
well. They will be completed in time. Yon
mention the Schenley Park matter. Well,
yes; I have received a letter from Mrs.
Schenley, and, although I do not care to
make it public at present, I shall say that
it is favorable, in fact more than favorable,
and I am confident that all will be pleased
with the outcome.
WOBK IN THE HILAND PAEK.
TheHiland Park is progressing slowly
hut surely, and is even now an ornament to
the city, of which the attractions and the
benefit are already felt. The park upon the
Allegheny, from Third street to the Sixth
street bridge, will be an assured fact, and
will show a good return for the investment.
No, that block of business houses on Du
quesne way, back of the river, was some
what in the light of a myth, and will have
no existence save on the paper on which it
was written and printed. TheBedford Ave
nue Park will get along quietly but effect
ually, and I may venture to say that in
three years all the breathing places of the
citv now under consideration will be well
under way. Ot course they will not be
finished, for that is a work of many years,
but they will show progress sufficient to war
rant any further improvements of the kind
which are necessary to be undertaken.
"The Center avenue improvements will
be taken in hand right away, and are ex
pected to be. completed by the'beginning of
next July, of course, dependentupon all the
vicissitudes attending such undertakings.
Yes, it is a big contract, somewhere about
"The Negley avenue sewering and grad
ing is just completed. It was a pretty big
piece of work, but may be classed now
among the things of the past.
"The big things under way will inclnde
Hie Thirty-third street sewer, rnnning from
9 feet in diameter to 3 feet, which will be
completed about December 1, or there
abouts. That represents some 5300,000 out
lay. A BIG JOB TO PAT FOB.
"The Negley run sewer, it is supposed,
will be completed about the same time. It
is another of those heavy contracts, as it
runs from 6 feet in diameter down to 4 feet,
and costs considerable to construct.
"Of the Forbes street pavement I can say
nothing, as it is still before the Department
of Awards, and of course courtesy
and justice to the proposed con
tractors prevents any mention of the
matter. On the street widening question
there is but little to say that is not known.
The Diamond street matter is in the hands
of the courts precluding all discussion of
the project. I am of the impression, how
ever, that it will be ultimatelv widened. To
the Cecil alley widening there is literally
no opposition! so that may be looked upon as
a ioregone conclusion. I cannot tell you any
thing about the Carnegie Library, as it does
not come into my department as yet, and the
other matters can be found out from the
chiefs of the respective bureaus."
Chief Bigelow bowed and the conference
was at an end.
THAT CAEKEGIE MBEAIIY.
Hon. W. E. Ford and George Sheppard,
Clerk of Councils, was seen on the Canregie
Library status, and the latter said it re
mained just where it did two years ago when
the enabling act was passed. The donation
in the first place of $250,000 looked a good
deal like a gift with a string to it, as it re
quired a certain commission to run the
library and a perpetual guarantee of 515,000
per annum for its support. This represented
6 per cent of an increased indebtedncs's of
8250,000 to the city, and the only remedy
was the issue of a perpetual bond to that
amount. But at the time the city's in
debtedness could not be increased, nor
could any Council guarantee legislation
which might not be afterward rescinded,
any more than the Legislature could
guarantee any one of its acts to last as long
as the much-favored statutes of 1791; so the
matter stood, and still stands. Clerk
Sheppord said that, although no pernetual
guarantee could be given, there was no
likelihood that the appropriation of 515,000
per annum would ever be revoked once the
citv had this propertv, which required it.
as for example, the Penn avenue market
and other citv property upon which money
is lost annually. Still there seemed to be no
disposition to take the matter up.
HIS HEAVY CONTRACTS CLOSED.
Superintendent Brown, of the Water
Bureau, said he knew of several' big under
takings still under way, but the majority of
heavy contracts in his bureau had been
closed. At present there was the 30-inch
main on St. Clair street about two-thirds
completed, and which was expected to be
done by October, subjecj, however, to
weather and other unavoidable hindrances.
It would cost 75.000.
Just then a ring at the Superintendent's
telephone notified him tbat the water em
ployes were ready to test the 16-inch main
on Penn avenue from Point .Breeze to
Hammond street, which was completed on
Thursdav, and he was assured it stood the
test well on a first trial.'the water under his
instructions having been turned on gradu
ally and the outlets both direct and on side
streets having been opened carelully first.
The Webster avenue main from Clarissa
street to Thirty-third street is also completed.
Among other big jobs in progress is the
big gas line, 30 inches in diameter, under
course of construction by Booth & Flinn
for the Monongahela Construction Com-
Iiany on the Southside. This is the same
ine on which the fatal accident occurred a
short time, ago by the blowing out of a test
head. Altogether there are a vast number
of big projects on .hand in Pittsburg, many
of which are yet incubating either in Coun
cil committees or in the brains of the enter
prising capitalists who see the way to
further wealth through their development.

Coal men express a keen desire to learn

UNCLE SAM'S GUESTS.
How Should They 'be Entertained
When They Come to Pittsburg?
SOME OPINIONS ARE PRESENTED,
American Delegates Will 'ha
Cared for in This City.
AflNE PROGRAMME TO BE PREPARED
The coming International Congress of the
Three Americas is an event which is attract
ing considerable attention. The congress
will be held about Octooer 6, and after its
adjournment the members will make a tour
of the principal cities of the United States
for the purpose of seeing the vast resources
of this country, and the great magnitude of
The delegates are about 75 in number,
and, while an appropriation has been made
for their benefit by Congress, the business
'men of the cities visited will be expected to
provide for their comfort during their in
vestigations. They will arrive hereon the
6th of November, and will remain for two
days, inspecting the industrial, establish
ments of our cities." Secretary Follansbee,
of the Chamber of Commerce, has invited
the Mayors of the two citiesfUnd the heads
of the Councils to be present at a meeting
next Monday afternoon, when arrangements
will be made for the reception and the enter
tainment of the visitors.
With a view of discovering whether the
leading men of the two cities thought that
the congress would bring about the desired
result of extending the commercial rela
tions of the United States and the other
American nations, a Dispatch reporter
called on sseveral of the representative men.
Mayor Pearson, of Allegheny, said: "I
certainly think that the International Con
gress will result in creating increased com
mercial relations between this country and
her sister States.
THEY MUST SEE TO LEAEN.
"However well informed these representa
tive men of the three Americas may be, they
can have no adequate idea of the extent of
our resources, and the immense facilities of
our manufacturing establishments. A visit
to our leading cities cannot but convince
them that it will be greatly to their ad
vantage to drop theli present relations with
foreign countries and to start up trade with
ns. Of course we should try in every way
to make the visit of these men interesting
and profitable. No pnblic demonstrations
are necessary, as I presume they are here
on business and not pleasure. A trip on a
boat up and down our rivers would no
doubt be very advantageous. The only pity
is tbat the members ot the congress do not
intend to remain with us longer than two
John H. Eicketson concluded with these
views. "Any step," he said,""which tends
to bind closer relations between the United
States and te other nations of this conti
nent cannot but be of the greatest advantage
to them and ns. The visit can do no harm,
and may possibly result in very much good.
Pittsburg, I believe, would be a great
gainer by this step, for even at the present
time our trade is steadily increasing with
South America. We should offer these visit
ing gentlemen every facility for seeing as
much of our city as the short space ot their
stav will permit."
Captain Harry Brown, of the firm of W.
H. Brown & Sons, said: "It might be well
to charter one of the Brownsville packets,
or possibly two of them, to convey the com
missioners up the Monongahela and down
the Ohio. That would be the best way to
i .show them the water commerce and indus
tries oi tnis city, jl taint tne coai ana
river men wonld assist in defraying the ex
penses, and it is probable that the Coal Ex
change would assist. The commissioners
ought to be taken to visit our principal in
dustries. No conference of coal or river
men has been held in regard to the matter
yet. In fact, all that we have heard about
the visit of the commissioners has been very
THE MAYOE'S .VIEWS.
Mayor McCallin That is something im
possible for me to say in advance of the
Chamber of Commerce Committee meeting
on the subject, which takes place next Mon
day, nd at which various views will be
ventilated on the subject. There will be a
great many Spanish-speaking among the
visitors, and I suppose the bills of fare
should be devised to snit the tastes of the
visitors from Olla podrida to Spanish olives
and Monongahela water; but I cannot fore
cast what will be the course pursued.
"As for the importance of the visit, that
is apparent to all, as would be the visit of
the representatives of any foreign country,
more especially those of the South Ameri
can countries, whose trade with us is unde
veloped and whose commercial intercourse'
is to onr interest to cultivate. To encour
age manufacturing in countries where the
tropical climate encourages indolence the
labor-saving machinery is the grand point
to develop and "
Here, when egg-beaters and apple-corers
were suggested the Mayor stopped and said:
"Well, the South Americans have no
apples, but we want their trade, and if
Pittsburg does not make a big effort to se
cure a nice slice of it, I am disappointed in
the enterprise of our citizens."

Tho Councils Committee Refers Back Sev
The Councils Committee on Corporations
met yesterday and recommended to Councils
the ordinance of the Pittsburg and Bir
mingham Traction Company with several
amendments, among which were that the
road not alone commences constrnction
within six months after passage of the
ordinances, but also that the work be
completed within. 12 months thereafter.
Annmber of ordinances were referred to
sub-committees of three, including that of
the Pittsburg and Mt. Oliver Eailway Com

THE REFEREE DECIDES.
Gnndanr and Teenier Ordered to itow Over
Again They Won't Row.
The parties directly interested in the
Teemer-Gaudaur boat race met at The Dis
rATCH omce yesterday afternoon to hear the
referee's decision. A detailed account ot
the proceedings will be found on the sixth
page. Teemermade a statement claiming
that Hamm not only was on the course
coaching Gaudaur, but he also interfered
with him (Teemer). Neither Gaudaur nor
Hamm appeared at yesterday's meeting,
and Mr. St. John stated that Hamm denied
in toto that he had interfered with Teemer.
After hearing all the statements the referee
ordered the men to row over again on Mon
day at 4 o'clock p. M. Subsequently the
parties agreed to make a draw ot it and
take down their money.

They Win Farther Fame on the Pittsburg
Clnb Tennis Courts.
Yesterday the Pittsburg Lawn Tennis
Cluffkept the ball a-rolling, and, if it were
possible, the sport shown was even better
than that of either of the preceding days.
It will be remembered that the survivors
of the two matches, in the "second round,
singles, played on Friday, were L. E. Porter
and M. K. Coster. In the round, as contin
ued yesterday, the scores were as follows:
M. Chrhty beat C. A Christy, M. 6-3, 6-3; S.
TV. B. Moorhead beat O. A. Painter, 6-4, 64.
In the third round, singles, M. K. Coster beat
J. E. Porter, 6-3, 4-6-, 6-1; M. Christy beat S.
W. B. Moorhead, 6-2. 3-6, 3.
The darkness set in at the close of the
third round, leaving Marshal Christv,
of Sewickley, and M. K. Coster,
the sole owners of the fight. There was just
time to play two sets of the championship
game between these victorious rivals.
Christy won the first set by 6-4: Coster
carried off the second by 6-2.
The third set will be played off on Mon
day, when the winner will be the champion
of Western Pennsylvania in singles. He
will receive the Crogan cup, which is to be
held for one year, and he will be required
to contest the cup next year in the annual
tournament of the Pittsburg club.
Of the second prize doubles, but one
match could be played. Seed and Moor
head defeated Barr and Painter 6-4, 5,7, 6-4.
The consolation prize, a handsome smok
ing jacket presented by Jos. Home & Co.,
was then contested for.
In the preliminary round W. H. Coster
beat E. V.'Paul by default; H. C. Eoess, of
Oil City, defeated W. D.Osborn, of Sewick
ley, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4; P. V. Lansdale, of United
States Navy, beat Baird Eeed, 6-1, 6-2.
In the first ronnd two games out of the
four entered for were played.
In the first game Thomas Ewing knocked
out S. W. Childs, 6-4, 6-1. In the second,
which was not finished, Dr. E. G. Matson
and F. X. Barr won five games each in the
first set. The rest of the games will .be
played off on Monday.
SO W1SD0W GLASS STEIIE.
The Demands of tbe Workmen Conceded by
The dispute between the Window Glas3
Workers' Assembly and the Window Glass
Manufacturers' Association was settled at a
conference of tbe wage committees of the
two organizations, held Friday night in the
office of E. C. Schmertz & Co., No. 130
First avenue. The manufacturers agreed to
concede the straight advance of 5J per cent
asked by the workers.- At the same time
there were made some changes in the rules
which are considered advantageous to the
mannfacturers. Secretary William Loeffler,
of the manufacturers, and President James
Campbell, of the workers, agree that the
workers were granted substantially all they
asked. Secretary Loeffler says that the ad
vance forced by the workers is not warranted
by the condition of the trade. For that
reason he expects that a number of the
manufacturers will not resume operations
until later than usual. By such delay the
workers will lose nearly as much as the ad
vance amounts to.
The Commoner and Glass Worker says
that the manufacturers delayed to sign the
scale demanded onlybecanse they desired to
postpone the opening of the factories. The
winnow glass workers of the Eastern district,
who work at about 10 per cent less than
those of the Western district, will now de
mand an advance of 5 per cent, and it is
probable that thev will meet their mannfac
turers in Philadelphia during next week or

A meeting of the Seventy-seventh Eegi
ment. Pennsylvania Volunteers, was held
last evening to prepare for a regimental re
union. There was only a scant attendance,
owing to the hastiness with which the meet
ing was called. Alfred Parsons called the
meeting to order.
Henry Schultz spoke as follows:
"I am in favor of a reunion of the old
Seventy-seventh, and to have it take place
alone. It is a shame the State could not
give more than $50,000 for its defenders."
Comrade George Drake said ironically:
"I think the Gettysburg affair, a reunion of
Home Guards. Another meeting will be
held next Saturday."

L Four Pittsburg singers, M. J. Vogel, MIw
Agnes vogel, Jan. uenKler and E. H,
Dermitt, took part in a uniqne ana won
derfully weird Episcopal memorial service
at Foxburg, about 86 miles up the Allegheny
river, last Wednesday evening. No such
service has been held In this part of the
country, possibly not Jn any section of the
United States. The only service that ap
proaches it, in it oddness, is one held
during Holy Week.called the "Tenebra," in
the Roman CatbolicJand High Episcopal
churches. The -exercises were in honor
of the father and brother of C. N. For.
The brother was killed where the Episcopal
church now stands.
At 8 o'clock the service commenced. No
lights were allowed, nothing but the mellow
light of the moon streaming through the
brilliantly stained windows of the sanctuary,
which cast a somber color over all. To
make the church entirely dark the singers
were placed behind some heavy, dark black
drapery at the west end. of the auditorium.

Lamps were used, but they were shaded
so as to cast the light on the music. The
clergyman's desk was similarly arranged,
and the organist,. Wesley Dermitt, was also
covered in like manner. Everything was
done to prevent artificial light penetrating
When the exercises opened the
church was crowded with , visitors,
who participated, but' were awed by the
mysterious solemnity of the surroundings.
A low plaintive interlude from the organ
floating across the room announced the
commencement of the service, and at the
east end of the church a white-robed minis
ter emerged from the south transept vestry.
He flitted ghost-like across the chancel and
took his position behind a screened lectern.
When tbe organ ceased its dirge, the minis
ter chanted a plaintive psalm and read a
prayer. The service was then taken up by
First a hymn in: a minor key was sung,
with an organ accompaniment, a little
above a whisper. After the hymn a silence
pervaded the gloomy place for a minute.
The effect was to send a thrill of awe
through the worshipers. For an hour
alternately a psalm was chanted, or a hymn
sung, and then a minute's silence was main
tained. A SHOUT ; SEEM ON FBEACHES.
After the mournful singing was con
cluded the rector, from behind his screen,
preached a sermon of abont seven minutes'
duration. He spoke about tbe conspicuous
events in the life of Mr. Fox's father and
the tragical end of his brother. The congre
gation filed out while the organist played a
solemn march. Everybody was highly satis

spoke words of praise -for the singers, who
conducted their part in a very efficient man

recovering her 3-year-old boy. She alleges
thatthe child waskidnaped -by her hns

is abont 22 years old, and has but one child.
The couple have lived apart for
a year, and the husband has
