He Makes a Sweeping Denial of Hia
life's Charges for Divorce.
Bchool Board Mnst Show Why
Failed to Provide Teachers.
"William W. Uisbet filed an answer yes
terday to the petition filed by his wife, Vir
ginia E. N isbet, in the divorce proceedings
now pending between them. He terms her
assertions "manilold untruths, uncertain
ties and imperfections," and avers she has
not demeaned herself as a dutiful and affec
tionate wile, hot by the indulgence of vio
lent temper and by giving herself up to
questionable practices, has imbittered his
life. He denies the allegation that during
August, September and October ot 18S8 he
forced her to leave his house by cruel treat
ment He also denies the statement that he
gave her drugs.
He alleges that she made an unlawful
request and he declined to grant it. She
then became enraged and made threats.
He told her he would not permit her to do
any violence.
When he said to her, "I am your hus-
band,etc,"she said: "Are you; Idon't know
whether you are or not." She also made use of
the expression: "I am now on the verge of
plnnging myself into the gilded life of
infamy anyway." Fearing she would do
herself some injury, the respondent alleges
be went to her physician and warned him
that he would prosecute anyone who would
assist her in her designs.
He avers he did all in his power to make
her comfortable and happy until he became
confident of her infidelity, notwithstanding
she had on occasions threatened, in foul
and profane language, to take his life, and
in the presence of visitors at home cursed
and swore because he refused, in the middle
of tbe night, to get her beer. Her temper,
he alleges, was so violent that she tore a
screen from a window and threatened to

bar to her suit, and asks that it be dis
IIueo Wncner on Trial for Desertion
Charged With Bicamy.
Among the desertion cases before Judge
White, yesterday, was one which developed
a sensation. It was that of Hngo W.
Wagner, called to answer a charge of
desertion preferred by his wife Catharine.
She stated that they were married in May,
18S7, in Philadelphia. He was a cook at
the Broad street station in Philadelphia,
and over a year ago was transferred to the
i TJnion depot, Pittsburg. She came on also
afterward, but he began to neglect her, and
she investigated and found that he was
married to and living with another woman,
Sarah Jane Pollin.
At this a young and good looking woman
came forward, and announced herself as
Mrs. Wajjner also. She produced a mar
riage certificate, showing that she had been
married here in July, 18S9. She had
thought him a single man. He went by ihe
name of Charles W. Wagner.
Wagner, in answer to these statements,
claimed that he was not legally married to
Mrs. Wagner No. 1, as she had a husband
living. She replied that he was dead when
she married Wagner.
Wagner added that he had been advised
by his attorney that he could marry and
had done so.
Judge White remarked that itiras a seri
ous case, and ordered Wagner committed to
County Detective Xanghnrst afterward
went belore Alderman McMasters and
lodged an information against Wagner for
bigamy. A hearing was fixed for Monday.
The Conn Decides an Important Clause Is
A decree was rendered yesterday in the
case of the appeal of the Pittsburg, Virgi
nia and Charleston Eailroad Company
from the city assessment on property on the
Southside. The property had been assessed
to "unknown owners." It consisted ot a
large number of lots which had been sold to
the railroad company, and they appealed
from the assessment, claiming that the val
uation was excessive. An important ruling
was made by the Court in the decree ren
dered. It stated that it appears to the Court that
the first provision of Section 23 of the act of
June 14. 1887, is unconstitutional and void,
and that the valuation placed on the prop
erty of the petitioners in this case is in ac
cordance therewith and is illegal and void,
and the valuation is set aside and the pro jv
erty valncd in accordance with the agree
ment of counsel.
The clause of the section declared by the
Court to be unconstitutional reads as follows:
"When the ownership of a lot is unknown
the claim shall be filed against 'unknown
owner' and indexed accordinirlv."
fc This decision seemingly makes it obliga
tory on the part of the city to discover who
is the owner before thev can file a claim for
taxes, etc
He Denies That His Father's Mind Wns
Weak When He Made His Will.
Florence C. Miller, Esq., yesterday filed
in the Orphans Court an answerto the
petition of his brother, Hampton J. Miiler.
in the contest of his father's will. In the
answer of Florence Miller he denies all the
allegations made. He refutes the state
ments that his father. Alexander H. Miller,
was incapable of making a will because of
his mind having been weakened lrom
habitual and excessive inebriation, and
that he was controlled and guided by fraud.
Also he stated that no undue influence was
brought to prejudice his father against other
members of the familv.
Twelve More Sindents Permitted to Stndy

12 passed out of the 19 examined. They

Monroe, Douchoo, McGeagh and Miller.
The result of the final examination of the

Mclntyre Claims His Wife's Mother Keeps
n Spenk-Ensy.
Another desertion case before Judge
White yesterday resulted in the discovery
of a "speak-easy." Terrence Mclntyre was
being examined on the charge of desertion,
preferred by his wife. He answered her
tale by saying that she spent too much time
at her mother's "speak-easy" on Forbes
In answerto questions put by the Court
he said that his wife's mother is Mrs. Marv
Murphy, and he bought liquor there three
weeks ago. Mrs. Mclntyre interrupted bv
saying that it was not a speak-easy case but
a desertion case.
After a few more questions he Judge
continued the cue until next Saturday.
Judge White Thought Din. Dewey Intended
So Violence. 4
The case of Mrs Dr. Crossley against Mrs.
Dr. Dewey for surety of the peace was
heard before Jndge White yesterday. The
trouble had arisen irom jealousy concerning
Dr. Dewey. Mrs. Dewey was represented
by John S. Lambie, and Mrs. Crossley by
E. II. Johnston. It was stated that Mrs.
Dewey had threatened to kill Mrs. Crossley,
and again had said that she would blacken
her eyes.
Mrs. Dewey related the interest displayed
between Dr. Dewey .and Mrs. Crossley, and
said that on one occasion she had put her
arms around Mrs. Crossley's waist to remove
her from her husband's ofhee. She had been
excited when she used the language accused
of, but she would not do Mrs. Crossley the
slightest injury.
Judge White said he did not think that
Mrs. Dewey had intended any violence, and
he dismissed tbe case. He advised Mrs.
Dewey to conduct herself with decorum,
and then if her husband preferred the other
woman to her, she would in no way be in
volved in the responsibility.

Some of the Southern Colored Baptists Are
for a Fence Policy.
Indiaxatolis, September 14. The
negro Baptists resumed the discussion of
the outrages again to-day. Rev. T. Ii. Jor
dan, of Mississippi, made a speech depre
cating the remarks advocating violence in
return for Southern wrongs, as it places a
mass of helpless colored people at the
mercies of the criminal classes of the South.
Others of the Mississippi delegation talked
in the same vein, anj resolutions were final
ly introduced and adopted to the effect that
the "Colored people cultivate a friendly re
lation with those among whom they live."
.rresiaent iove Became very wroth at the
passage of the resolutions and made a
speech, retelling the story of the assault
upon himself, and said that the passage of
the resolutions would make it apparent that
there had not been an assault, and that they
had made false, statcsments. This cansed
much excitement and tbe vote was recon
sidered and the resolution tabled. The
members of the Mississippi delegation in
sisted, however, upon their names going on
record as being opposed to violence, and
this was allowed.
Rev. Father Walivortb Thinks They Wonld
Make Too Much Noise.
Saratoga, 2T. "ST., September 14. The
Rev. Father Walworth of St Mary's Cath
olic Church, Albany, last Sunday indulged
in a bitter denunciation of that spirit of
mammon which would desecrate the church
and interrupt the solemnity of its serv
ice by bringing the noise of the com
merce of the world so near as to be heard by
the worshipers at its altars. He especially
exhorted his congregation to "protect the
church from the hideous electric poles. The
uuu rumDiing ot tne cars, he said, "would
greatly disturb the services on Sundays and
week days alike. Once let the electric rail
way be introduced into the city and every
church will be liable to be disturbed by
such a nuisance."
He used the texts, "Ye cannot serve God
and mammon," "Thou shalt not follow a
multitude to do evil." He demanded
"the defense of the church and its altars
atrajnst such an invasion of her sanctities as
is involved in the proposed running of
street railways in front of her doors."
A Tramp Trust.
Special Officer Cook, of the Pittsburg and
Lake Erie road captured two gentlemen at

on a freight train, at Homestead bridce ves-
Vterday evening. He invested them with the
order ot the steel bracelet and Jert them with
thetelegraph operator. The tramps giving
their words as gentlemen to- remain where
they were, the officer went to dinner. When
he returned he found that the prisonersxre-
garaiess oi tneir parole a nonneur, had
quietly skipped off, hand cuffj and all.
They have not since communicated with the
trustful officer.

And Its Solution, as Viewed Through
a Pair of Southern Spectacles.
Some of the Ideas of Those in the Xorth
Who Would Handle It.
Coffetville, Miss., September 12.
Again the race problem agitates the public
mind, but it is one which the people of the
South must work ont for themselves. With
the change in the administration came the
renewal of the question as to "equality of
rights," but if the problem receives a just
and methodical solution, it must be studied
from a Southern standpoint and from South
ern associations. In the North, where no
such danger as negro majority can be felt,
the gravity of the situation is not appreci
ated. Theory is good, but the philanthropic
North is not yet ready to be dominated over
by the African as he is .then why theorize
for the South?
The North is noted Tor its publicly ex
pressed love for the black man who does
not lire in the North but when the appoint
ment of a negro postmaster was made in Ala
bama tho sentiment of the press spoke the voice
of the people when it said, "All right so long
as it is done in Alabama. White supremacy
reigns here, and by tbe eternal fitness of things
we intend it shall continue prevailing."
If about one-half the negro population of the
Sonth conld go up North, and an equal num
ber of whites take their places in the South, it
would make such an equal division of color
that the "race problem" could be studied
to good advantage by tbe Northern fanatic
The North wonld fight to the bitter end if com
pelled to accept any other than white suprem
acy, yet are over ready to talk of "equal
rights," and moralize over the oppression of
the Southern negro. Under a government like
ours there can be no law against
We refuse to receive the Chinaman, either
as a serf or an equal, yet he is the representa
tive of a powerful nation. In the redskin,
whom we have dispossessed of his original
rights, we recognize no equality, while the
descendant of the barbarous black, whose tribe
on the Golden Coast still trembles before a
fetish, may now sit at tbe desk of Clay or Cal
houn! Truly, the fancied threads ot ethical
casuistry are hard to unravel.
Within the past 23 years the North and the
South have together contributed $40,000,000 to
the education of the freedmen, yet tbe im
provement, except in individual cases, is not
noticeable. Evcrv Northern man who goes to
tfie South for other than political reasons
naturally comes to sympathize with the race
feeling of the native whites there. Every year
there arrives a handful ofmenwltha mission
a mission to keep other people's consciences
often to tbe neglect of that charity which be
gins at home.
From the cargo of slaves from Afric's land,
the race has Increased to millions, and with tbe
rapidly increasing population the Southern
country has every reason to feel that the day
uui iur uisiauL wueu me uueoear oi negro
domination must be met The Southern
negro, depending upon tho people of his coun
try for his very daily sustenance, has every
right to lend his vote to the interests of the
Slate, but ruled by the overtures of Northern
politicians, the great mass of colored voters
stand by th party that gave them the ballot,
and vote against the interests of those upon
whom he depends for bread and clothing. The
advance agent of the Northern politician nas
made of tho negro a political serf. The glit
tering display that the spoils seeker makes
his fawning, flattering words, his promises of
golden days, when the "40 acres and the mule"
are held out as delusive temptations, bave
made the negro break faith with his best
It is a simple tale and plausable, too. but oh,
tho untold misery that lollows it I The poi
son has become thoroughly inocnlated, ana
there is little hope that the colored pecple will
ever recover from its:effect. As a race there
seems to be nothing in their present condition
to encourage even
that they will ever adopt those habits of life
that lead to prosperity. While they may enjoy
a practical monopoly of farm labor on the best
lands of tbe States, they prove themselves
totally devoid of any characteristic that makes
good tenantry. It is frequently the case that
almost every farm band in the neighborhood
will abandon his crop at the most critical time
to go on some excursion; his character is de
void of reason and judgment. . His one thought
is for the present sacrificing anything for a
present desire.
An incident that occurred last year illustrates
the negro character faithfully. Late in the
winter, when a light snow covered the ground,
an old negro went to town with
neither shoes nor socks. Tbe sight
of tho old man's bare feet so wrought
upon a kind-hearted merchant's feelings taut
he called him in and gave him a pair of brogans
and warm socks. In less than an hour the old
sinner sold both for a drink of whisky, and
wadedibome rich as Croesus. The negro's love
of a festal time is proverbial; he has his corn
shuckings, his log rollings, his quiltingbees, and
every work is made to yield its element to
frolic. He is not ambitious. For days and
weeks he will live frugally on cornbread and
bacon, with an occasional 'possum canght in
the night hunt, when, all at once, his savings
will bo spent in one evening in a happy, care
less way; crowds of his dusky friends will
gather in, the music of the fiddlo and the banjo
will bo heard, tbe patting and tbe boxing and
the "hoe-down" convince that he is contented
and as well off as he would be anywhere else.
So we seo he remains undisturbed by change of
condition, and little inclined to push for more.
n oneimngine -coiorea individual" ot tne
South has changed, and that is in his right to
swear aloud a privilege that many f teedmen
value next to liberty. Cries of the most pro
fane character resonnd throughout the fields
as this Senegambian combats with some head
strong mulo or some underling in the field.
The moralist who anticipatea that emancipa
tion would bring in its train all the courtesies,
with all the virtues, will of course be shocked.
The negro has his position in the South, and
that he never meets with in tho North. Not
one need go hungry none cold. Charity sees
no one suffer. There are tics that are felt in a
hundred ways. Children love the old nurse;
that old butler is humored, and here and there
a sham invalid is indulged. Tbe "color line"
is undoubtedly drawn, and necessarily, too, for
the negro is of another race, and since the days
of Ham has had his position in the wola's
history. The negro, too, is an aristocrat, and
draws the "color line" at the "poor white
trash" of tho South. .
Tho Quixotic idea of colonizing the negroes
in a territory by themselves, just now revived
by V. P. Calhoun and approved by Senator
Hamnton, is absurd. Tho' negro is the natural
laborer for the South, and while be needs a
supervisor, is yet superior to tbe socialistic
foreign labor that the North employs. That
tbe negro will be eventually elevated to the
level of the Caucasian is believed by many
educators, but in every age we have ssen that
the brains nt tbe Caucasian are a practical
necessity for the progression of a govern
ment. We, as a nation, have alreadygiven the negro
equal civil rights with the white man. Already
mfllions bave been expended in tbo frecdman's
cause, and many millions more must be before
we see any shining results. It would be unrea
sonable to expect tbe offspring of slaves or
heathens to develop in a short time all tbe
thrift of a moro favored humanity. If the
wealth of the nation will educate them beyond
the superstition and immorality of their pres
ent Hie, make them citizens worthy tbe high
place tbe law has already given them, Ciiris-

contrary. Right under the rays of clear, brilliant, honest sunlight, so, plentifully admitted to our salesrooms by their large
