Reports ol fabulous fortunes in Europe
for American heirs are frequent, but the
realizations of such tales are exceedingly
rare. It is probable that among the un
founded tales of that sort may be classed a
story which pertains to a large and well
known family of Western Pennsylvania,
some of the most eminent members of which
are residents of Pittsburg.
The following letter was yesterday re
ceived by The Dispatch from a citizen of
The fcproull heirs, of whom there are quite a
number scattered through the Cnited fetates,
have lately recched the ref resume news that a
large fortune awaits them in Scotland, the
former home of their ancestors. This fortune
is said to be in hard cash, and foots up the
enc-mous sum of S13.tiOJ.CO0. which is a sum
surtlynotto be despised. Among the lucky
hcira are D. Sproull, of Allegheny City, tho
oldest living heir; A. V. Watt and sisters, ol
Allcshen township Westmoreland county;
the fcuroulls of Butler count, of whom tho
fcvrian nnsionarx, W J SurouU, is one; Miss
Jiargaretta feprouU, of Lcechburg, and her
bio.ners; R. fe. bproull, of Washington, la.;
AV. J. bproull. of Parnassus and a half dozen
other families scattered through Pennsylvania
and the estern btates. It is said the thing is
jreuuiue, and steps are ueinjr taken to have the
money paid over to the rightful heir.

DE. SPROULL SMILED.
A reporter for The Dispatch last evening
visited Kev. Thomas Sproull, LL.D., of Alle
gheny, and showed the Utter to him. That
gentleman read it through, bnt began to laugh
licfore he had finished the second sentence.
When he had ended bia perusal bo drew lum
lnmclf np to his height, which is considerable,
'There is absolutely no foundation for this
story, none whatever. The same thing came to
mj ears about a j car ago. It seems that there
are men or firms in London, and I presume in
other European citus, which make it their
business to watch such things as this. When
thej lern of a fortune left bj a man without
known heir tne look up every person of that
name in this country, and hav e it reported to
them that a fortune awaits them if thej will
take legal measures to secure it. Their design
is to secure nionej from the supposed heirs lor
the purpose of pajmg the expenses of investi
gation and lesal proceednre.
"I suppose that the business is a paying one.
I am satisfied that this report was started for
such swindling purposes. hen it first came
to us. a year ago, my son William, who is an
instructor in the university m Cincinnati, took
borne pains to inquire into the thing. After
considerable correspondence, he concluded
that the ttor was a fraud.
"lhis letter sajs that the former home of our
aaces.ors was Scotland. My lather came from
the north of Ireland, in the last century, and
the family 'ii ed there for man j generations.
They were not rich. I suppose tliey came
originallj lroin Scotland, tut that was, as the
storj books saj, once upon a time.'
HE WAS AOTHEIt SPEOULL.
"I have beard my father speak of a Sproull

bleacher business, bnt he was not related to

ltd. John . bproull, the pastor of the Cen

father had done, be smiled broadly before he
was half na; turough the letter lie said: "I

cestors arc from Ireland. 1 would not spend a
cent to look up such a matter unless I w ere
ver sure it had a cood f ounaation. We bat e
received no refreshing news such as the letter
speaks of. It maj be that other members of
the connection hae been making inquiries
about it and have learned something, but I
take no stock in it. I know of all the persons

AN ELECTRIC SI65AL TEST
To bo Blade on the Pittsburg and Western
Road To.Daj-Two Elect licinus Who
Think Ther Have a Good Tuluff.
Arrangements have been completed for a
final test this afternoon, at 3 o'clock, on the
Pittsburg and "Western road, Allegheny, of
the invention which, if successful, will
revolutionize the present system of signal
ing on all railroads. Tor a long time
Messrs. T. D. "Williams and J. S. Lacock,
of the "Western Union Telegraph Company,
have been quietly experimenting on their
discovery, and they now think that they
have improved it sufficiently to introduce it
to tho public. Of course railroad men, elec
tricians and scientists have inspected tho
models on which tho inventors have been
working, and have expressed various opinions,
hut the test to be made on the tracks of the
Pittsburg and Western to-morrow will be the
first one of an official and public character.
The invention is termed the Automatic Block
Railroad Signal, and is desisned to make each
train do its own s ignaling. If it proves to be a
success the service of operators will be done
away with, at least as far .as their aid is re
quired to manipulate the switches and switch
boards. If the system advocated by the in
ventors be adopted cverv tram w ill bo provided
with electric batteries, and secondary batteries
will be located wherev er the signal blocks are
placed The connection between these two
bitterics will bo established by means of a
wire, which will follow the course of the track.
Whether a train is at a standstill or in motion
it can lie protected both in from and in the
rear under this system.
Kip-nais must bo nnt alonr tho tricks at any
distance from each other that the authorities
of tho railroad miy determine. As tho train
moves into a block, it will establish a current
with the front and the rcir signal, and will
raise them at once. In this wav any other
tram which maycorae eitherwav will be warned
of the presence of cars in that block. If by any
chance a train of cais should be broken into
two or more parts, the signals will act just as
they would for the whole train.
There will be no difficulty about tho cost of
this v stem, as the inventors claim it win 00
full 60 per cent cheaper than any method now
in use. Most of the experiments have been
conducted on a model about 20 feet long, pro
vided with a small locomotive and a number of
signals; but recently, throuch the courtesy of
Manager McDonald, of the Pittsburg and
A estern, the use of an engine, sotno cars and
a line of track opposite the new Exposition
was offered for the use of tho experimenters.
The official test will take place there to-morrow
afternoon at 3 o'clock, and will be w ttnessed by
the leading railroad officials of the two cities
and many other interested parties.
It was claimed that a wet day might interfere
to a great extent with the success of thesvs
tem, but it has been tried while the weather
was rainy, and worked like a charm, so the
Overtures have already been made to two

MOVING THE CARS.
Tbnt Junction Blockndo Seine Slowly Re
diiccd illnnnecr McDonald Denies That
1,300 Cars Are Tied Up.
Matters seem to be -at a standstill in the
reported blockade on the Pittsburg Junc
tion and Baltimore and Ohio Railroads.
Quite a number of cars are still standing
along the various sidings, and an ordinary
observer sees very little difference in the ap
pearance of tbe situation. Manager McDon
ald, of the Pittsburg and Western road, how
ever, insists that matters aro not nearly as bad
as the other side has represented them to be.
"It is possible," he said, "that the Baltimore
and Ohio road may have 1,300 cars on their
tracks between the city and Washington, but
it is ridiculous to claim that there are 1,300 cars
in and around Pittsburg alone.''
He showed The DisrATCH reporter a note
from some of the Junction officials, in which
they stated that there were 300 cars in t'ie
Junction yards, and 760 on tho tracks of the
Baltimore and Ohio, and bo denied that the
number was even that large.
"wuy," no said, "one 01 our regular trains
was delayed live hours on Snnday night, sim
ply because the Junction could not xurnish us
with cars enough to make a train. On Monday
morning two trains bad to be abandoned be
cause the Junction was still backward in fur
nishing us cars. We hauled 291 cars for tbem on
Saturday, and 175 more on Sunday, and that
was all they hau It is nonsense to talk of the
Pittsburg and Western being unwilling to haul
cars: we will more tbem just as.fast as we can.
and nobody could bo expected to do more."
Tho Junction people said that if any trains
had been delayed for fire hours owing to a
want of cars, they had not beard of it. Tho
Baltimore and Ohio road, they said, had
not hauled any cars to the Junction
road at all yesterday, because it was
known that cars erough were there
already. They did not wish to get into a news
paper altercttion, and w ere reticent as to the r
views and intentions. They insisted, honever,
that 1,300 cars had been laid up, and while ad
nutting that quite a number had been moved
since The Dispatch published the first ac
count of tho affair, claimed that there were
still enough left to keep all parties hustling.

gheny. He only stopped over to take a
passing glance at the place, and after
spending several hours in the building left
for the West. .
Mr. Ebbert's visit to the building was on
business connected with a proposition to
build a large pipe organ in the music
chamber. The Building Committee has been
talking in a casual way of patting an organ in
the building, provided they had money enougn
left to pay for it, and it would be completed irJ
time for the opening on January 1 next. The
Roosevelt people heard of the matter and or
dered Mr. Ebbert to stop over here on his way
West. He did so, and James B. Scott, Chair
man of tbo Building Committee, met bim.
nE HAS AN EYE TO BUSINESS.
Mr. Ebbert, who is an expert on matters of
this kind, was loud in his nraise of that part of
the building to be devoted to mnsic He said
the acoustic properties of the chamber were
excellent, and said the lovers of music would
be perfectly satisfied in every way with that
When bo returns to Philadelphia, Mr. Ebbert
will give an estimate on the cost of an organ
that would be in keeping with tho snrronnd
lngs. His estimate will be in tbo nature of
plans and specifications showing tho different
grades of instruments, finish, etc. It 13 ex
pected that the kind of organ winted
would cost in the neighborhood of 10.000.
The building committee are now figur
ing whether they will have this amount
left over out of the appropriation
alter everything has been paid for. So far
they have received $200,000. and when the build
ing proper is completed there will be very little
left. It is expected, however, that Mr. Carne
gie, or somo other music-loving citizens, will
make good any deficiency after the organ is
TO BE A FINE ORGAN. ""
It is the wish of a great many people that the
organ to be erected in the building will be the
finest in the city, it not m the State. In speak
ing of the matter last evening. Chairman Scott
"We have not taken any active steps toward
etting an organ, nntil we see whether we will
eable to pay for it or not. An instrument is
needed, but we can go so far with tbe money
we have and no farther. It would also be neces
sary to have tbe organ completed when the
doors are thrown open to the public. We ex
pect the opening to take place January 1, and
when we turn the building over to Allegheny
City our work is done. If an organ is placed in
tbe building after the opening it will have to be
done by others not on the Building Committee.
There are a thousand and one things to be done
yet. and nobody knows for certain when the
opening will take place. We did not ask Mr.Eb
bcrt to come here, and will not solicit bids un
til we know bow wo stand. All the talk about
it so far is purely sentimental."

At that time reference was made to tho

shadow over tbe entire trip of tbe party. Emil
Poerstel did not come home with his compan

The party landed in New York last Friday.
Mr. Trautman's illness had grown steadily
worse, and he was landed from tbe steamer on
a stretcher. He was met at tbe port by his
brother George, his brother-in-law, Jacob T.
Keil, the commission merchant, and Dr. M. A.

Keil. He is very low. and there is said to be
small hope of his recovery.

family on Pius street, Southside. It is not the
first time the department has been called on m.
her behalf. The cirl came to this city in Janu
ary, 1S8S, and in May she was sent to tbe Poor
Farm, where a child was born.
She is now only 19 years old and has a very
pretty face. Her borne was in Uermany.wbere
she was in the employ of a titled family, and
the girl alleged that a son of tbe house mis
used her and sent her to this country at bis
own expense. This statement 13 borne out by
the fact that shortly after her arrival here, tbe
department collected $10 sent .to her by regis

PLENTIFUL E (ME
- Si. J
EemarkaJMe Properties of That Won
drous Metal, Aluminum.
The Day of Nickel-Cased Watches Hearlj
Over and Tin Going Fast.
THE QUESTION OP COST WILL S0LTE IT
Aluminum, the metallic base of alumina,
is widely diffused over the earth in the shape'
of clay, loam, etc. The adamantine, the
ruby, the corundum and sapphire are
alumina nearly carbonized. In these forms
alumina Is next to the diamond, the hard
est substance known. Aluminum is a white
metal with a bluish tinge and a luster some
what resembling silver. From its bright
ness, hardness, ductility, sonorousness,
non-liability to xnst, and resistance to the
action of sulphurated hydrogen, it is
largely employed in the preparation of
alloys and for the manufacture of articles
for which silver1 'was tormerlv employed.
Aluminum gold is an alloy of 10 parts
aluminum to 90,of copper, of a pale eold
color, harder than, bronze and snsceptible of a
fine polish. lis hardness and tenacity pe
culiarly adopt it for journals andbearings.
Alnminum is the most plentiful of tbe me
tallic elements, though to tbe general public
scarcely known. It has been tbe dream of
metallurgists for the past SO years to get it iso
lated from its compounds so as to make it
cheaply enongb to become of use in ordinary
everyday Iff e. It has been known almost 100
years, but has been an article of commerce for
only 35 years and Its price has ranged from IBS
to 812 per pound.
HALI. HAS A SEW" PROCESS.
Now Mr. Charles Hall, of Oberlin, 0 comes
with a new process bywhich it is procured at a
reduced price by reducing the metal direct
from its ox.de, as Iron is gotten in a blast fur
nace, but instead of this redaction taking
place by the action of beat it is performed by
meansof electrolysis, the same as electro-plat-
infc; except tnactnsteaa or plating it is simpiy
About a year ago Mr. Hall came to Pitts
burg, and out of bis coming grew the Pitts
burg Reduction Company, whose works are on
Smallman street, near Thirty-second. ?nd tbe
result of its work maybe seen In the Exposi
Operations began in December last, and one
of the company said: "Since we began opera
tions we think we have nearly perfected our
process so that we can torn ont L200 or 1,300
pounds pure metal per month. In April the
metal was quoted at 110 00U 00 per pound;
now It is quoted at tV' '
An idea of some, of its properties can be
gotten from the statement that the tensile
strength of brass is 30,000 pounds per sauare
inch.while that of aluminum is about 40,000.
Brass is 3K. gold 7 7;10 and silver about 4
times as heavy as aluminnn. Alnminum does
not tarnish under any ordinary circumstances,
but retains both polish and luster. It may
eventually take tbe place of tin for domestic
uses and for roofing. It may be made into
wire and be used for tbe sewing of wounds.
CAPABLE OP A PINE POtfen.
As it does not tarnish and takes on a fine
polish and lusteqlt can be used to advantage
as lace in ladies' garments. It Is an excellent
material for ceilings and wainscoting, signs,
etc It can be rolled as thin as gold or silver,
and never gets black.
While aluminum is a large constituent of the
bricks in our houses and of fire-brick, in clay,
being in the form of silica, it Is used in tbe
works mentioned in the form of an oxide
called bauxite. As tbe metal U now produced
at a cose 01 less man one-ioartn that 01 silver,
and as it answers all the purposes to
which that metal has ordinarily been
applied, its nse will be increased in
definitely In the fine arts. While it may
not be nsed in tbe manufacture of fruit cans
this year, or even next it is already being
used m tbe fabrication ot fruit knives, medical
and other spoons, ico cream shovels, soup
ladles, crumb scrapers and a tbonsand and one
things for which sliver and brass hare been used
heretofore. Tbe alloy of. 10 per cent alum
inum and 'm per cent copper produces a
bronze of immense strength, and is difficult to
distinguish frem pale gold except by weight.
it has mnrArsiBEHdiBl
It can be seen in the form of ,watch cases,
lockets, etc., which defy detection by sight
alone, and yet it adds so much to the strength
of cast-iron that it is used in tbe making of
cook stoves, one tenth of 1 per cent being nsed
in some places to mix with pig iron, greatly
improving texture and strengtb.
Its ductility is such that it can be rolled into
sheets so fine that the fanning of a bumming
bird's wing would agitate them, and yet it can
be made cneap enough to bo used in the mak
ing of boats to run on fresh water. It is not
peculiarly adapted to withstand chloride of
sodium, however, to an unlimited extent, so for
sea-going boats it would not answer quite so
well. The manufacturers claim that it is good
for telegraph and telephone wires, bemg a good
conductor of electricity.
While the makers may be thought, by some
to oe too sanguine In their estimate of tbe
ability of science to rednce cost, yet there ap
pears to De a sona snn-stratum lor tneir en
thusiasm, and it may not appear strange to
those who believe that tbo highest type of or
ganic life was made Irom clay to conceive that
from it may be extracted one of tbe most use
ful, if not the most precious, metals. It is
sonorons to a degree that throws silver far
into the background as bell metal.
