i V WAS IT JM FAITH? A Glass Manufacturers' Meet ing in Chicago To-Day. R THEY ARE DISSATISFIED And Will Kot Recognize the Action of the Pittsburgers, THE ASSOCIATION MAY DISBAKD. An Expert Tank Furnaceman from Bel gium is Xow in tlie City. OTHER IXTERESTKG LIBOR ITEMS A meeting of the members ot the "Western "Window Glass Manufacturers' Association, outside of those in this city, trill be held at the Grand Pacific Hotel, in Chicago, to-day for the purpose of taking action upon the settlement of the window glass strike by the Pittsburg members of the Wages Com mittee. According to circulars received in this city yesterday, this action will be adverse to the decision of the committee which granted the advance. It is said that nearly every manufacturer in the "West is dissatis fied with the settlement, and claim that they will not recognize the action of the commit tee. This means that they will not pay the advance without a renewal of the struggle, and as far as the West is concerned, the strike has not been settled. The information was obtained yesterday from two reliable Pittsburg manufacturers. They stated that the advance was granted by the committee because one of their number wanted to start his own factory. They claim that he should have resigned his position on the committee, and, if he wanted to, he could sign the scale for his own firm and not for the whole association. INSIDE ACTIOXS DETAILED. At the meeting oi the Pittsburg manu facturers Wednesday last, the manufacturer in question said he wanted to start up at once. The other manufacturers did not want him to do so and there was quite a spirited discussion about the matter. His factory is a 40 pot concern, and has the use of free natural gas The other manufac turers pay 550 per month per pot lor gas and it will be seen that the 40 pot concern is saving an exDense of 2,000 per month on fuel. For this reason, the manufacturers wanted to begin work at once. "When it became known that the member of the Wage Committee wanted to start up, it is stated that firms in the West tele graphed him to hold off until they held their meeting to-day. It is also said that no notice of the meeting oi the two committees on Friday night was sent to the Western manufacturers who were on the committee in time for them to reach Pittsburg. The other members are President Catlin, of Ottawa, 111., Messrs. Gray, of Zanesville, O., and Coolman, of Ravenna. The manufacturers west of this city con trol over two-thirds of the entire product of the Western Association. In Pittsburg there are 244 pots, not counting the tank capacity at Jeannette. AVest of this city there were at the time of the shutdown 660 pots. It is thought that the manufacturers west of this city will break away from the asso ciation, on account of the action ot the Wage Committee, and the outcome of the whole matter may be the DISEUPTION OP THE ASSOCIATION. A new one will then be formed and the two largest factories in this vicinity will be left out of it This is the combination pub lished yesterday afternoon which has been freely talked ot the past few days. Some of the manufacturers want to combine and erpct tank furnaces, keeping their present pots, ior the production ol the best grade ot glass. As yet, no plans have been outlined lor the details of the scheme. A tank furnace complete will cost in the neighbor hood of $100,000 and no one manu facturer wants to go into it without outside assistance. The firms who are supposed to be working up the new combination are O'Leary Bro., and Wolf, Howard & Co. President Bodine, of the National Asso ciation, is going into the tank business on his own hook. His place of business is in Philadelphia, and the tank is now in course of construction, and it is expected it Mill be working by November 1. The demand of the mixers and teasers, for an advance of wages, in the same propor tion as the advance given window glass workers, will probably be granted by the manufacturers. When the reduction was made in 1884 they were reduced 10 per cent. Since then their wages have been increased 5 per cent, and the present scale restores the wages of 1884 A number of the Pittsburg factories tiill "blow" on Satur day, and it will be necessary to have ihe trouble settled before that timeif the blow ers go to work. The men are organized in L. A. 1418, Knignts of Labor, But do not expect any assistance from the Window Glass Workers' Association. The latter have promised the manufacturers to start as soon they are ready, but they cannot do 60 if the mixers and teasers do not furnish them the glass to work. TALKING ABOUT GLASS. Two Experts Who Have Come to Pittsbnrg to Have Their Eyes Opened. Sir. J. M. Pagnoul, of Jumct, Belgium, and Mr. Elliott Harden, of New York City, are guests at the Duquesne. Mr. Pagnoul is an expert engineer in glass tank construc tion, and lately has been employed in the erection of tanks at Bridgeton, N. J., for President Bodine, ot the National Glass Manufacturers' Association. Speaking of the relative merits from an economical point of pots and tanks, Mr. Pagnoul said that he would estimate a sav ing in favor ot the latter of from 10 to 15 percent. The tanks, he said, were much superior in every respect to the older recep tacles, as, when the batch in the pot became low, the qnality got bad and the glass cor respondingly ot a diminishing grade, while with tanks in use the batch entering at one end and the glass being gathered at the other, a certain quantity was constantly maintained; the quality of the glass could always be relied upon as constant. In "Belgium, he continued, manufacturers were about doubling their plants, paying special attention to the production ot plate glass. The object of the two gentlemen in Tisiting here is to spend a brief holiday in viewing our factories and acquainting themselves with the use of natural gas as applied here. They will visit Jeannette and other leading works. Mr. Pagnoul is pretty well up in the history of the glass trade in this section of the country, and .promises himself a pleasant time in adding to his experience while in Pittsburg. KOTEIIfG HEARD FB0M MEM. K. of I". General Executive Officers Mar Not Arrive To-Day. C. H. William Euhl, President of the Musicians' Mutual Protective "Union, and who is a member of the committee appointed by the Trades Council to investigate the trouble between the M. M. P. TJ. and Ii.

The date set for the hearing was V to-day, and it could not be learned whether they will be here or not. District Master Workman Boss also had received no notice of their departure from Philadelphia. TO THE CONVENTION. Delecatcs Goine TliroutU tho City to the aiectinc of N. D. A. 135. ' Secretary Treasurer Robert Watchorn, of N. D. A 135, Knights of Labor, coal miners, passed through the city yesterday from his home in Columbus to Wilkesbarre, Pa., to attend the annual convention of the district to be held at that place. The con vention will be called to order to-day by Master Workman James B. Kae, and will be attended by about 100 delegates. Those who will be present from this vicinity are M. F. Flannigan, W. B. Wilson, James Kcegan. Hugh McLaughlin, John Nugent. Thomas McQuade, W, C. Webb, Eobert Linn, Eobert Maggs, Richard Kirk, Thomas Poxon, W. McNamara, H. Stephenson, John R. Newby, J. P. Brown, Daniel Len non and Eobert Prisby. General Master Workman Powderly and John Cos t el I o, of the General Executive Board, will also be present at the con vention. THE MT. AIRY PARK. Tllrs. Schenley Donation to tbo People of FitmbnrK The Property Worth More Than Hnir a OIIIIIou Dollars. Much interest has been aroused in the park project since Chief of Public Works Bigelow announced that the communication to the Schenley estate had been answered in a manner to put the big park beyond the region of doubt. At first when the project was spoken of a good many people thought it too good to be true that the Schenley es tate would make such a big donation as was hinted at It was remembered that Mrs. Schenley had previously shown a disposi tion to be very liberal in the matter in the early '70's, when Councils had an intima tion that a large part of ML Airy might be bad for park purposes for the ask ing. That was the time when the city had not yet grown in population to any great extent beyond the old wards, though the territorial boundaries had been in 1868 ex tended almost to their present limits. When, therefore, Chief Bigelow, this summer, declared that the beautiful tract of 379 acres, just beyond Oakland, between Forbes avenue and the Monongahela,could be nad upon terms that almost amounted to a gilt, it W3S not surprising that in some quarters incredulity mingled with hope in speculating on the issue. Much guessing has been going on as to the actual terms oi me communication which has been received from the Schenley estate, and which seems to be held quiet for the present, not from any doubt about a favor able result, but to wait for Councils. What they are in detail will not, of course, be known until the negotiations are laid before the City Fathers; but it is possible to indi cate with a close approach to certainty the leading items of the preliminary proposals now under consideration. The main idea is the donation of 279 acres absolutely, and the agreement upon a price for the other 100 acres. The figure which is spoken of in a preliminary way for the 100 acres would not exceed 51,500 per acre which is considerably less than property as well situ ated in the neighborhood is now bringing in open market. The whole transaction on this basis will amount to the equivalent of a gift to the city of property to the amount of over half a million dollars. It is the noblest donation that has ever been proposed to Pittsburg, and will show in the handsomest manner that the Schenley estate takes a very deep interest in the growth and future of the place. This feeling was already expressed In a most agreeable manner by Mrs. Schen ley when that lady recently sent her check for $5,000 and her'good wishes for the Expo sition. Further negotiations may possibly result in some slight change upon the above, but it is understood that the main idea, so far as it has progressed, runs close upon the lines indicated. LOOK 0DT FOR FIRE! The Tliree-Foot Water Main Bnrst at Forty. Fiftb and Butler Streets. The three-foot water main on Butler street burst at the corner of Forty-fifth street abont 9 o'clock last night The Water De partment was immediately notified, but it was expected that some damage would be done before the flow could be shut off, and for a time following there will be a scarcity of water in that section of the city. While the inhabitants may wrestle along without water for a time, extra precautions to prevent fire should be taken. HITHER AUD THITHER. Movements of Pittsbnrsers and Others of Wide Acquaintance.

Homeopaths Begin Their 25th An nual Convention. LOCAL HISTORY OF THE KE W SCHOOL How GastaYus Bcicbhelm Triumphed Oyer Derisive Opposition. SYNOPSIS OP THE PROCEEDINGS THE disciples of the great Hahnemann received a much warmer welcome in this city yesterday when the State Con vention of the Home opath ic Physicians commenced its twenty-fifth annual session at the Homeopathic Hospital, than was ac- frcsidenl W. B. Tntes. corded that fine, old medical gentleman, Dr. Gustavus Reich helm, when he arrived in Pittsburg 52 years ago and flung tbe shingle ot the new "faith" to the Western Pennsylvania breezes. Nor was it in Pittsburg alone that the new medical wrinkle subjected its votaries to jeers and flouts. The civilized world had to be taken by the throat and made to believe in the new doctrine of "like cures like." The followers of Galen and Hippocrates led the onslaught upon Hahne mann, but, in so doing, simply voiced the popular opinion that the tiny pills and col orless globules were inimical to health and longstanding usage. The early history of homeopathy in Alle gheny county is replete with interesting in cidents. The fight was sturdily carried on by Dr. Beichhelm for several years, and it is safe to say that he was a marked man in the community. But after awhile some other doctors dropped in. Among the pio neers were Drs. Hoffmann and Boyer, of Allegheny City, and Drs. Drake, Cote and Perriman, of Pittsburg. Gradually opposi tion ore away, and homeopathy became firmly grounded in Pittsburg, the first city west of the Allegheny Mountains to adopt the new medical science Its growth has kept pace with Pittsburg in every essential particular. There are over 80 physicians of the school in Allegheny county. Not over 50, however, are numbe'red in the Home opathic Medical Society, which meets regu larly on the second Friday of each month. In the Homeopathic Hospital, the new school has an institution to which it is possi ble to point with pride, ana which has be come one of the city's institutions. HOMEOPATHY'S EABLY DAYS. Dr.Gustavus Reichhelm arrived in Pitts burg in 1837, having come at the request of Rev. Father Byer, who had written to Dr. Constantine Herring, then the foremost American exponent of the new school of medicine, asking that a physician be sent here. Dr. Beichhelm was a graduate of the German University of Halle, and had be come enthusiastic over homeopathy while at the Allentown Academv of Homeopathy. He began practice in this city on the 10th of October, 1837. He was considerably de rided, and two appellations stuck to him for years. One was "The Dutch Doctor" and the other was "The Sugar Powder Doctor." He performed some remarkable cures upon his patients at the Catholic Orphan Asy lum, and during 12 years but two deaths took place among his patients. Some acri monious passages between Dr. Beichhelm and bis allopathic colleagues enlivened the first years of his work in this city. He showed fight at the drop of a hat, and ex torted an apology from some of his detract ors by threats of libel suits. A brilliant record made in the Asiatic cholera visita tion in 1819 placed homeopathy upon a firm footing in Pittsburg. To illustrate the growth of the new school of medicine, in 1837 Dr. Beichhelm was the only homeopa thic practitioner west of the mountains, and there are now nearly 6,000. THE ADVANCE IN MEDICINE. Nearly every physician can give some apt rejoinder wjien asked how the practice of medicine to-day compares with that of half a century since. Dr. Thomas' anius inc reference to the "potentiality of the in finitesimal" in connection with doses of jalop and pink-root intended for children but enough for horses, is remembered in this connection. Dr. Gross, professor of surgery at Jefferson Medical College, re marked yesterday that 50 years ago the pro fession of medicine was enveloped with a mantel of secrecy arid theorems. The ad vance since that time has been, in his opin ion, greater than in any previous era ot the world's history. Dr. J. C. Burgher said that half a century since the medical pro fession was a monopoly exerting all its pow er to crush and repel every new idea in the healing art. "For such reasons," said Dr. Burgher, "who can wonder that Dr. Beich helm was denounced as a charlatan by cotemporaneous physicians; ostracised by the clergy, disliked by the druggists and an object ot suspicion to the community." Dr. Burgher believes that electicism will event ually blend all that is best of each system into one harmonious whole. TIIE CONTENTION AT WOEK. The Pennsylvania Homeopathic Medi ical Society held its convention of yester day in the chapel of the Homeopathic Hos pital, the delegates being informally wel comed by Colonel Slack, Superintendent of the hospital. President Dr. W.B.Trites, of Philadelphia, called the convention to order, and prayer was offered by Rev. Samuel Maxwell, rector ot Trinity P. E. Church. Dr. Z. T. Miller, of the bouthside, made the welcoming addres' ina happy vein,which evoked a response from the President, who then read his an nual address. The latter embodied con gratulations upon progress, statistics a to growth and sugges tions as to the future. He advocated a move ment to request the Society of the Red Cross to add home opathic physicians to its staff, and also a re- &? J". O. Burgher. quest lor representation upon the medical boards of all public institutions. Dr. Trites maintained that the homeopathic profession was entitled to complete control of the next State insane asylum established. Dr. F. J. Cooper. Treasurer of the society, read his report, which was followed by the report of Dr. E. B. Snader, of Philadelphia, Secretary of the society. A number of com mittees were appointed. Dr. J. Bichey Gustavus Beichhelm. fflmk MBrcS3 JNmtmx v&m w ,mi W Horner, of Allegheny, read the mortuary report, and paid a glowing tribute to the memories of six members deceased since the last annual meeting. Drs. Closson, Malin and Horner were designated secretaries of the meeting. The censors reported favor ably upon the names of six applicants for membership. There were 50 delegates pres ent when the morning session was concluded by the reading of a paper upon "The Water Slieds of the Scuylkill and Upper Dela ware." THE AFTERNOON SESSION. The afternoon session at 3 o'clock was devoted to the session of the ."Bureau of Clinical Medicine," with Dr. E. C. Parsons in the chair in the absence of Dr. W. C. Goodnow. chairman of the bureau. A kindly telegram from the New York State Society, now in session in Eochcster, was read. A telegram was ordered to be sent to Dr. John Malin, of Philadelphia, Second Vice President of the societv. Dr. Malin is ill, and the telegram expressed a hope for his early recovery. Dr. W. B. Trites, M. D., read a paper on "Herpes Zaster," dealing with symptoms and treatment He stated that it was both neuralgic and rheumatic, and maintained that it could be caused by impurities in the atmosphere. The next paper was upon the topic, "The Medical Profession versus Abortion," read bv G. Maxwell Christine, A. M., M. D., of Philadelphia. There was an appended comment of a legal nature by J. E. Scattergood, Esq., of the Philadelphia Bar. Dr. Christine's statements were start ling. He stated that any physician would bear him out in the claim that unnatural medical operations were becoming alarm ingly prevalent among single women. "The professional ridder of 'mishaps,' " con tinned the speaker, "plies his trade in every hamlet and town. Beputable physi cians must decline the appeals made to them by women of every grade of the social world, and their refusal begets a field for practice. Astounding STOBIES OF SHAJIE are known to all physicians, and the evil seems to grow. Immense profits are made from the sale of medicines unblushingiy ad vertised in otherwise reputable journals, and the recklessness with which women tamper with their permanent health is ap palling. No nostrum seems too dangerous to be its own warning against use, and those who aid and abet these crimes against nature are rarely punished legally. Legis lative enactments of a stringent nature should be made without loss of time. These so-called remedies are frequently violent and always a source of great danger. The profession must raise its voice against this evil, for moralizing does not hold it in check or prevent its rapidly Decoming a universal menace to our institu tions. A noted phy sician expressed to me the firm conviction that fully one-half of the human family dies before it is born, of which percentage a large amount of deaths are directly or indi rectly due to pre-natal violence. 1 would sug gest a law compelling physicians to report such cases as they do contagious diseases, and I would advocate i such a law." The Dr. J. F. Cooper. a punitive clause legal paper was a very bitter arraignment of the despoiler of homes and "the fairest fruit of the family tree." . Some discussion followed Dr. Christine's able paper, and sentiment expressive of favor was Ireelv declared bv those present. Dr. E. B. Sna'der, of Phila'delphia, read a paper upon "Bed Lines on.the Gums as a Diagnostic in Cases of Phthisis Pulmonalis." Dr. Clarence Bartlett read a paper entitled "Universal Forms of Oedema." Dr.- W. J. Martin read a paper upon "Clinical Con firmations," citing character of patients as adjuncts to deductions, drawing the conciu VLi .u c ,' ara?E lne c??u: that pathological conditions conld not sion that pathological c alwats be judged alike. Chairman E. C. Parsons read an interest ing paper upon "Typho-Malarial Fever." A paper by W. C. Goodno, M. D., upon "Types of Southern Diseases" was read by Dr. C. Mohr. Several other papers were to have been read, but went to the Committee on Printing on account of the arrival of the hour of adjourument. EVENING SESSION ON ST7BGERY. Last evening's session was devoted to the Bureau of Surgery. The chair was occu pied by the President, Dr.' W. B. Trites, of Philadelphia. The first paper read was by Dr. John E. James and treated of a clini cal case in brain surgery, the subject being a boy who was rendered unconscious for a week through falling on his head, who re recovered, and who, 15 years afterward, was sunstruck. Epileptic fits followed, and an operation was deemed advisable. There was a deep depression in the skull, and on the removal of the bone an immense flow of blood ensued. Death seemed imminent, but finally the patient recovered. The hem orrhages, the doctor said, were extraordi narily heavy. The next paper was that of Dr. W. B. Van Lenncp, of Philadelphia, and was en titled "Experiments in Intestinal Sutures." The paper mainly related to personal ex periments and was described by Dr. James as being of the kind most needed. Drs. Buck, of Altoona, and L. H. Melliard, of Allegheny, contributed papers on "Supra pubic Lithotomy." Dr. B. W. McClel land, of this city, related the case of a boy whose club foot he successfully 'operated upon, and that of another boy who was so deformed that he could not sit down in a natural position nor scarcely walk and whom he so treated as to enable him to both sit and walk in a natural manner. Dr. B. Van Lennep was appointed chair man of tbe liureau ot surgery tor the ensu ing year. LARGE TURNER MEETING. Arranccmcnn for tho Turner Fair Bcluc DIado In Allcchcnr. The Turners, of Allegheny, held & meet ing in William Beilstein's Hall, 261 Ohio street, last night tor the the purpose of mak ing final airangements for the Fair, which will accompnuy the opening of the new Turner Hall in Allegheny. Over 100 ladies-were present, and were authorized to collect money to defray the debt incurred by the erection of the hall. It will be one of the finest buildings of the kind in the two cities, and will cost nearly $40,000. The ladies elected Mrs. Chas. Ehlus, wife of the city Engineer, President of theirorganization, Mrs. Tretmalsch, Vice President, and Mrs. Gottfried Ihsen, Secre tary. The fair will commence on the second of December and will last two weeks. WEDDED AT KUTANNING. Two Prominent Clarion County Yonng Peo ple Join Hearts and Hands. Miss Cora Neely, the youngest daughter of Hon. Cyrus Ncely, ot Clarion county, was united in marriage yesterday to Mr. Joseph Cnlner, a wealthy young merchant of St. Petersburg, Clarion county. The ceremony was performed in the par lors of the Reynolds House, in Kittanning, vesterday afternoon by Bev. George E. Tit sell, and the bridal couple came direct to the Seventh Avenue Hotel last evening on their way East. A personal preference of the young people is given as the reason for the perforamnce of the ceremony in Armstrong instead of Clarion conntv. CHURCH UNION A SUCCESS. Tbo Kevr Flan of the 31. E.

A WOMAN AHD HER TEMPTER. David TJlslx Would Still Forgive His Hand some, Erring Wife. HOW A BUCOLIC HOME WAS IKYADED One day in June, two years ago, a tramp stopped at the farm house of David Ulsh, in Marion county, O., and asked for something to eat. He was a good-looking young man, and the farmer and his wife bade him come in and enjoy a hearty meal. He told them a story of hard luck, and they took pity on him. Farmer Ulsh asked th man to stay and work on the farm, and Thomas Yon Dyne gladly accepted the offer. The farmer's wife, Louisa, was buxom and pretty, and only 28 years oldi The farm contained 200 acres, and David was evi dently in good circumstances. Van Dyne's lines had fallen in pleasant places. For 20 months he lived and worked on the farm, and was treated as a member of the family by the generous young farmer. TEESTO, CIIANCE. One winter day last February Ulsh went to Marion, six miles distant, and when he came home in the evening his wife and hired man were gone. For two weeks Ulsh could hear nothing of them, but by assidu ous inquiry and search he located them at Bavenswood, Mich. They had arrived there February 28 on the steamer Andrews, and had registered, under fictitious names. at the Hotel Bavenswood as man and wife. Van Dyne learned of the farmer's arrival in town one evening, and he escaped ou the lake in a skiff, going to the home of his mother in Racine, Meigs county, O. Ulsh met his wife, and after a sad interview, he forcave her and took her home. Van Dyne did not remain long in Bacine. It was not pleasant for him there. It has been learned by the Pittsburg police that he left Bacine in the first place because he be trayed a young girl of that town. Last spring he came to Beaver Falls and secured work there in a pottery. From that place he wrote to his farm love in Marion county, and through a clandestine correspondence tbey arranged for another runaway. About six weeks ago Louisa Van Dyne, having first sent away some of her household goods, fled a second time from her comfortable borne and came to Beaver Falls. She and Van Dyne began housekeeping there as man and wife, using Van Dyne's proper name. BES.TJI.TS OF INQUIBY. The deserted husband, who is too plainly in love with his arrant spouse, sent inquiries broadcast concerning her. About a week ago he wrote to the Pittsburg police, saying that he had learned that his wife and Van Dyne were living together some where near this city. At hrst no attention was paid to the letters, but he wrote four or five times, and sent his wife's photograph. The picture is that of a well-formed, handsome woman. Assistant Superintendent O'Mara and Inspector Mc Aleese finally took the matter up. Causing inquiries to be made, they located the Ohio pair, abont a week ago, in Beaver Falls. David Ulsh was notified. He arrived in Pittsburg yesterday morning. After a con sultation with Messrs. O'Mara and Mc Aleese it was decided to send a detective with Ulsh to Beaver Falls. The faimer was accompanied to that town by Officer Philip Demmel. Van Dyne and Mrs. Louisa Ulsh were arrested, taken before a justice of the peace in Rochester and committed to jail to .Wait a hearing to-day. Thev are charged ... , imoraiconduct; Mr. Ulsh returned toPittsburz last night. but will this morning go again to Bochester jto testify against the man and woman. It is said that he is even now disposed to forgive his pretty but wayward wife and take her back to the Marion county farm. ii HE WILL KEC0TEE. Ex-Mnyor McCarthy's Condition Consider ably Improved Last Night. At 12 o'clock last night Mr. Wil liam C. McCarthy was resting easier with" every prospect of his recovery. When inquiry was made at his residence, 126 Clark street, it was announced that the ex-Mayor would probably recover, unless he took another chill. The original attack came on with a chill, and this symptom was, therefore, very much dreaded. Early yesterday morning Mr. McCarthy fell into a gentle sleep and did not awake until 1 o'clock in the afternoon. He per spired freely, and the doctor regarded; this as a very favorable sign. When the physician left the house at 10 o'clock last night he en tertained every hope of his patient's re covery. No little surprise was occasioned by the announcement of ex-Mayor McCarthy's danger of death from an attack oi blood poisoning, induced by the bite of a favorite Newfoundland dog. . The animal seems to have been very vicious and bit several people in the vicinity of Mr. Mc Carthy's residence. He could not, how ever, be induced to have the dog killed un til the day before yesterday, when he or dered it poisoned. A suit is pending against him before 'Squire Cassidy for keeping a ferocious dog, the particulars of which have already been announced in The Dispatch. A REUNION IN THE RAIN, Regimental Societies Had an Excursion on tbo Elver Yesterday. The One Hundred and First and One Hundred and Third Pennsylvania Volun teers held their annual picnic yesterday. The Mavflower had been chartered f6r a sail up the Monongahela river. The day was unpropitious, but it did not deter the veter ans of many hardships and battles to meet reuniteJly again to talk over the vicissi tudes of former days. About 200 veterans -with their families participated in the ex cursion. Some of them came from a dis tance.

Chairman William McCreery, of the local Belief Committee for the Johnstown flood, issued yesterday a formal call for a meeting of the committee next Saturday morning at 10 o'clock. Nearly all the members of the committee are in town, having- returned from vacations and outings, and a full attendance is expected. Tbe now famous epistle of Governor Beaver will be the main topic of discussion, and a breezy time is expected. Only a few Pitts burg gentlemen were present when the con versation, so widely construed, took place between Mr. McCreery and the Executive. Becognizing this fact, Mr. McCreery has fortified his position with letters from out siders who heard the Governor's statements as to what he would do in the matter. Concerning the business to come before the meeting, Treasurer William B. Thomp son states that there is a grist of small bills unpaid which represent points in dispute or matters held for committee action. There are a number of bills for labor performed put in by men who worked from a day to a week; among them are some of Booth & Flinn's laborers. Mr. Thompson said that if the committee took action promptly, nothing would prevtnt his turning over the balance of cash now in his hands about 5160,000 to the State Flood Commission, for the forthcoming final distribution. The retention 'of a small reserve fund in Pitts burg as a provision for contingent bills will be advocated. F. & II. BANK DEPOSITORS PAID. The Auditor Will Disburse SS5.000, Slak ing a Return of One-Fourth of Accounts. A published notice to the creditors of the defunct Farmers and Mechanics' Bank, to the effect that William H. 'McClung, the appointed auditor for the distribution oi moneys in the hands of H. J. Berg, J. H. Sorg and L. S. Cunningham, trustees of the bank, would commence to pay out the money yesterday at his office in the Bakewell building, had the effect of crowding tbe of fice with Southsiders anxious to get back all or a portion of their funds which were invested in the bank. Mr. McClung said that the amount of money in his hands was about 585,000, re sulting from the settling up in part of the defunct institution. This money will be paid pro rata on authenticated accounts, on a basis ofthe $520,000 dnetodepositors. At a rough estimate all depositors will receive one-fourth of their claims at the present payment, whether the original amount was large or small. Many of those who pre sented their accounts were skeptical in re gard to even partial payment, and could hardly believe that their money was to be returned until the pro rata amount was handed to them, mostlv in checks upon the first National Bank, where $50,000 of the defunct bank's money has been on deposit since last Jannary. Mr. McClung stated that a further payment would be ordered as soon as the bank assignees realize upon cer tain real estate and accounts still outstand ing. THE FREIGHT BLOCKADE. Terr Little Change la the Present Aspect of Affairs. - The freight bloceade on the Baltimore and Ohio and Junction railroads remain practically the same. Manager McDonald, of the Pittsburg and Western Bailroad, claims to have been compelled to abandon two trains, with tbe exception of one section, on Monday night, because there was no cars to be hauled. Besides there was only 38 cars terday morning, and 30 of these were taken away. Since that time the bridge has been on the Junction bridge yes filled with cars again, but the Junction has a down grade from the Baltimore and Ohio, and can bring down 200 cars in a very short time. Mr. McDonald hinted tbat the trou ble with the Baltimore and Ohio Bailroad arose from the fact that he had refused to lend their cars with which to carry en their Toledo coal trade. Several engines belong ing to the Pittsburg and Western had been injured in wrecks recently, and would be soon out on the road again to aid in remov ing any freight on hand. There would be no trouble at all as soon as the engines now being constructed for the road were com pleted. SEARCHING FOR ETIDENCE. The Police Cause Loud Campbell to be Held for Developments. "Loud" Campbell, Alex. Gleeman and Charles Kline had a hearing before Magis trate Gripp yesterday on a charge of burglarizing No. 168 Center avenue one week ago. Kline and Gleeman were committed to jail for court trial, but Campbell's case was held over at the re quest ofthe police officials, who are collect ing evidence against him on another and more serious charge. When arrested Campbell had a pocket book, some precious stones and several small gold rings on his person, which the police think have been stolen and are anxious to have identified. The articles can be seen at Inspect McAleese's office in City Hall. A Five-Yeor-Old Faces Dcntb. Edah Bennett, a girl only 5 years old, while running across Penn avenue last evening at 6 o'clock, was struck by cable car No. 214, going west, between Twenty-seventh and Twenty-eighth streets.

TOBACCO A'HD BEltRBOTH DEBATED Preachers Who Chew or Smoke Will Not Be "licensed Hereafter. OTHER MATTERS DECIDED YESTERDAY At yesterday's session of the Primitive Methodist Conference, .in the Eighteenth ward, a system of invitation by which preachers are changed rom one station to another was adopted. A special quarterly couference will meet id each March to con sider such invitations ior ministers to change their stations. The report,of the Cfeneral Committee on the powers of "Local Preachers" caused considerable discussion. It was as follows: Tbat all accredited local preachers bo em powered to bury the dead, baptize and may assist the ordained pastor in administering the sacraments ot the Lord's supper. Almost every menfber of the Conference was opposed to the resolution. Bev. Mr. McGreaham said that some old local preachers, with whom he was acquainted, smell like old tobaeoo shops, and cannot go to or come from a. sermon without first taking -a glass of beer to prime them up to it. THE TOBACCO QUESTION. Bev. Mr. Bakeman pffered a resolution that no person be given, the license who is addicted to the use of tobacco or intoxicating drinks as a beverage. Someone suggested that the subject be referred to the committee again. Then Layman Daisley said that there would be no use to refer it to the com mittee as he would not- serve. He said that he used tobacco himselt and would not re strict some other man.- There were calls f "Here! Herel" from other members. Bev. Mr. Bateman said that he offered the resolution in all Chris tian propriety. He" had'known churches; of wnicq bv bad been pastor, to sutler from men ho used tobacco and intoxicating drinlis. He said that it was now time for the conference to be fixed and firm on this subject Bev. J. H. Acornley would not take upon himself the thankless" responsibility of put ting any man'spipe out. Bev. E. Humphries thought tbat licenti ates ought to make this small sacrifice for the good of the church. Begular preachers are pledged against the use of both tobacco and intoxicants, ONE POSIISE FAILED. Bev. Thomas OJliyer said: "X promised my boys this: To, the one who did not 'drink I would give 550 when he became 21 years of age. If he did riqtjuse either tobacco or intoxicants I would give him 5100. And if he used neither tobacco nor intoxicants and did not get married L would give him 5160. Bnt because these things are so generally used around them, I have been unsuccess ful, despite my most earnest prayers, to keep them from their use." After prolonged discussion both resolu tions were separately adopted. Bules governing the publishing house were adopted, and Bev. Elijah Humphries, of Brooklyn, was made manager ot it for four years, to succeed himself. Bev. E. Humphries and W. J. C. Bond were made editors ofthe church organ, the Record and Messenger. Each circuit or station was ordered to keen a record of the baptisms, marriages, deaths, etc., that occurred within its limits. Every member of the church was given the right to appeal and to challenge lor cause, and no personWhd v not a member of some Christian church 'will be allowed to give evidence in any church trial. Each con ference will formulate rules for its super annuation fund. Jhe laws in the new dis cipline will take effect January 1, 1890.
