"What Will lie Done l)y tlie
State League of Clubs.
Dalzell for Chairman of the fiesolu
lions Committee.
Two Men for Several Offices Will
Borne Lively Hustling.
Preliminary arrangements for the conven
tion of the State League of Republican
clubs were completed last evening at a late
hour, by President Edwin S. Stuart and his
official assistants. For a 2-year-old body
the league will make a magnificent show
ing when it meets at 10 o'clock this morning
in Lafayette Hall, that black old Republi
can stamping ground. The character of the
men who have already arrived in this city
as delegates, shows that the cream of active
Bepublicanism in Pennsylvania is to find
representation at this, the second annual
The league will be called to order by Ed
win S. Stuart, President, who is, by the
way, entirely without opposition lor re-election.
Mr. Stuart is of massive proportions
and as popular as he is big. His friends
allude to him as the next Mayor of Phila
delphia. He will make a few remarks in
reference to the rapid growth of the league
in its one year of life.
It was hinted last night that an address
of welcome to Pittsburg might be expected
from Hon. John Dalzell, whose felicitous
abilities in that line are undoubted. The
roll will then be called by H. T. Fairlamb,
of "West Chester, Secretary of the league.
Mr. Fairlamb is to remove to Spokane
Falls, Wash. T., next month, and is not,
therefore, a candidate ior re-election. He
will be in charge of the coast affairs of a
big mortgage company, but will finally
drift into politics so his friends -say. He
an indefatigable worker. The credentials
of the delecates will be offered lor verifica
The Commi'tee on Resolutions will then
be appointed by President Stuart. Hon.
John Dalzell will be the chairman of the
committee, which will number 16 gentlemen,
representative of various portions of the
State. This committee will wrestle with
and successfully curb the manifest inclina
tion of the members of the league to kick
over the civil service traces. Ninety-nine
out of one hundred of the league members
are more than impatient at the painfully
alow manner in which the flesh-pots are
opened up by the administration, uut it is
now certain that the resolutions will re
affirm the attitude of the Eepublican party
elsewhere upon civil service reform. But
it is more than evident tht the Jacksonian
policy numbers some strong champions
among members of the league. There will
be a recess whilethe committee is 'reso
luting. After the recess will come the election of
officers for the ensuing year.
As before stated, President Stuart will
succeed himself. Captain William Thorn
ton, Select Councilman of Philadelphia, and
present Treasurer of the league, is also
without a competitor. He is one of the
veterans among Eastern Republicans, and
will be United States Marthal for the East
ern district of Pennsylvania whenever Presi
dent Harrison removes the Eandall Demo
crat now holding the office.
For tne permanent Secretaryship of the
league there are several aspirants. Chas. F.
Etta, for six years Secretary of the State
Central Committee, is out for the stuff, as is
also William Linn, Port Warden of Phila
delphia, and a leading member of the Cam
eron Club. The contest is so well defined
that a caucus of the Philadelphia contingent
will be held this morning before the conven
tion with a view to fixing the thing up. Mr.
Ettla claims considerable strength outside of
A tug of war may ensue over the Vice
Presidency of the league, an honor bagged
last year by Burr Mackintosh, a Tariff Club
man. THE Dispatch stated last Saturday
that Captain A J. Logan, of the Americus
Club, was a candidate lor the position, a
statement backed up by some phenomenal
hustling by his friends in his behalf yester
day. An annonncement made yesterday
morning that William Fhnn was desirous
of being Vice President, created a small
sized political furore. It is said that Mr.
Flinn's friends desired that he should be
the temporary Chairman of the convention.
But as soon as it was discovered that there
would be no temporary organization, a
change of base was made, and gunning for
the vice Presidency commenced. Mr.
Logan's friends relused to credit Mr Flinn's
candidacy, and Hon. A. C. Eobinson and
John Gripp prolessed to know nothing of
the matter last night. At all events, none
of Mr. Flinn's adherents were on hand
buttonholing delegates already here, nor
did Mr. Fliun show up at the League head
quarters. A little caucus, held last night
tightened up Mr. Logan's chances for the
position. One of the Eastern men said in
regard to the matter that it could hardly be
expected that delegates from other parts of
the State wonld ieel it incumbent upon
them to settle Pittsburg's local squabbles.
It is possible that the Vice Precidency may
cause a ripple in the convention. Scranton
will secure the Second Vice President, and
Lancaster the third.
After the election of officers the Commit
tee on Eesolutions will report. The band
may play "Annie Laurie,' and it mayn't.
The election of delegates to the National
Convention of Republican clnbs will come
next in order. There will be two delegates
from the State-at-large and one from each
Congressional district. These will be elected
by the convention. President Paul, of the
Americus Clnb, will possibly represent the
JTlUSDUrg aisirici wuen uie voung is con
cluded. John Keeb may be elected to repre
sent Colonel Bayne's district. William
Leeds will probably represent a Philadel
phia district. It may be that some lively
although good-humored contests may be pre
cipitated in the course of the choice of the
national representation.
The next upon the programme will be the
choice of the permanent Executive Commit
tee, which is made up ot one committeeman
from each Senatorial district in which clubs
exist. These gentlemen will be cnosen in
caucus bv the clubs in each district. Of
this committee the League officers are ex
officio members in relative rank.
This will conclude the work of the con
vention, and President Stuart stated last
evening that a special effort would be made
to finish the business session to-day and that,
too, in time for the reception to Candidate
H. K. Boyer at the Seventh Avenge Hotel.
All Republicans are welcome, and the ar
rangements for the eventare extremely com
plete. Note.
THE delegates from all over the State will
arrive this morning. Upward of 230 delegates
will be present.
Dr. Q. W. Febcobjt, President ot the Penn
sylvania Association in Washington, D. (X, will
attend the convention, arriving to-day.

State Chairman Andrews will also be "re

Committee on Receptions, was first Chairman
of the League, and first representative from
Pennsylvania to the National League ot Clubs,
an honor now held by Henry M. Dubois, of
Senator M. S. Quay was at one time ex
pected to be present at the Boyer reception
to-night, but was suddenly called to Philadel
phia. He went East on the day express yes
terday morning. He states that a State fight
has never been in better shape than at present.
Allegheny Now Hai a Well of Babbling
Pare Wnter.
The citizens' pump in the Allegheny
parks, between Federal and Boyle streets,
was formerly turned over to the city of Alle
gheny last night. A call for a public meet
ing to be held in Common Council chamber
was not as generally responded to as it
might have been, and but a small gathering
was present.
Dr. O. L. Miller called them to order,
and nominated Dr. R. B. Mowry for Chair
man, who filled the position. Presidents
Lindsay, of Select, and Hunter, of Common
Council, were made Vice Presidents and
representatives of the press secretaries.
Mr. Arthur Kennedy, Chairman of the
Parte Committee, was present to receive the
gift from the donors, the citizens ot the
Third ward, to the Park Committee, for the
benefit of the public.
Chairman Mowry stated the object of tho
meeting, and introduced Dr. B. F. Wood
burn, who made the speech of pre
sentation, and formally turned over to Mr.
Kennedy the key of the inclosure.
Mr. Kennedy accepted it on behalf of the
Park Committee and citizens generally.
"The gift," he said, "is of value for its
practical usefulness. The city can boast ot
numerous wells, the gilts of public spirited
men, but none so good as this. It is really
a fountain, for the reason that its flow is
Mr. Kennedy alluded to tie blessings
shown the city by her public spiritsd ad
mirers, in giving to her conservatories,
aquatic gardens, free library and hall, and
the books to stock the shelves, and he
understood the city was soon to receive a
donation for a public observatory.
Beibanr Mission Dedicated on Grant
Street Lnit Evenlns.
Miss Mary Moorhead has granted a room
in the Moorhead building on Grant street
for the establishment of a mission where the
gospel is to be proclaimed without money
and without price. The mission was dedi
cated last night and christened "Bethany."
There were Einging, prayers and speeches
made by Miss Campbell, of the London
Mission schools; Mrs. Baker, of Rochester,
N. Y.; Mr. Stone, of Chicago, and Mr.
Whitesides, a faith-cure missionary.
The main subject discussed was how to
secure the interest of those who are living
without hope and enslaved by sin. The
narrations were quite pathetic, especially
those of Mrs. Baker and Miss Campbell.
Mr. Whitesides, however, did not seem to
be worried by his work as did thejadies, as
he held they were simply workers in the
vineyard, and could comfort themselves by
looking to God for the increase.
The room was not filled, but the assem
blage appeared to be deeply interested.
Twelve Cara Were Smashed In a Wreck at
Aenew on the Ft, Wayne.
The suburban passengers on the Fort
Wayne road last evening were in a very
ugly frame of mind. A freight wreck oc
curred at Agnew station and delayed all
trains several hours. While the first sec
tion ot No. 75 was running west one of the
journal boxes became hot and was burned
out. The weight ot the car on the one side
of the axle caused it to spring and break in
the middle. The load dropped down on the
track and the other cars piled on top of the
wrecked car. About a dozen of them
loaded with merchandise were scattered all
over both tracks, and completely blocked
the road for hours. No persons were hurt.
Heart Failure the Came of Thomai Jor
dan's Death nt Brnddoek.
Coroner McDowell held an inquest on the
body of Thomas Jordan, of Braddock, who
died under the knife on the operating table
ot Dr. Dean. Death had resulted from
heart failure, and a verdict was rendered in
Movements of Plttsbarcers nnd Others of
Wide Acquaintance.
Colonel John Stewart, United States
Consul to Antwerp, returned to the city yes
terday from Washington, where he paid his re
spects to the State Department. Colonel
Stewart is one of the most accomplished and
popular men in the Consular service. There
are few Americans visiting Europe who no not
experience his courtesy, while the commercial
interests of the country, so far as concerned at
Antwerp, have in hiraa vigilant and useful
guardian. Colonel Stewart will remiln a tew
davs, the guest of his relative Joseph Wood
vtelL, Esq., before returning to his post.

lina, accompanied by Colonel F. H. Stith. of

regard to some iron manufacturing interests

Washington on Thursday. Senator Butler is
oneof the best known Democratic statesmen
of the South, and is a Brigadier General.
"Tony" Hamilton, one of the press
agents of Barnum's circus, is very popular
wherever he goes. Few men in the business
have more friends than the genial "Tonv." He
sashe can talk with perfect indifference to
the business managers ot papers, hut bis nerves
become a little shaky when he climbs the edi
torial stairs. Tony showed a number of repor
ters through the circus yesterday.

The Allentown Turn Hall Authori
ties Get a Hint to Clear Oat.
Followed by Threats of Destruction
Everyone Who Enters It.
A very considerable degree of astonish
ment and no little excitement was exhibited
by an assemblage of the Allentown Turn Hall
authorities last night when a Dispatch re
porter confided to them, with manner grave
and secretive, the contents of the following
postal card received at this office yesterday
morning :
All persons are forbidden nnder penalty of
death of ever entering the Allentown Turn
Hall again. That building will not stand a week
longer. On Saturday night last a sufficiently
large enough bomb was concealed in that hall.
It will explode some time this week. Look out
for your lives. Be prepared to see something.
Remember the fire. Dynamitees.
This blood-curdling and terrible intima
tion would, perhaps, have been ordinarily
set down as the work of some inane
practical joker, were it not that an attempt
to burn down the building was made on
Wednesday night of last week, as already
reported in The Dispatch, and which fact
imparted more or less of importance to the
above. The worthy trus'ees'of the gym
nastical society were sorely puzzled what
to make of it, and by no manner of means
could they determine at whose door to lay
the insidious attempt against their building
and themselves. An exhaustive effort on
the part of the reporter to get at inside facts
concerning the state of affairs as between
the members of the Turn Hall Society, met
with little success, and the true meaning of
the above interesting production is still a
matter of conjecture.
SOMETEOUBLE nr the banks.
It seems, however, that all is not well
within the ranks of the athletes, and that
an element of discord has been introduced
into the usually pleasant social relations of
the members over the question of the pur
chase, some two months ago, of new
"turning" appliances. Some $500 was ex
pended for this purpose, and because proper
authority was not given for the purchase,
and also for the reason that some of the
material was bought in Chicago, a very
vigorous kick has been made by a section
of the society against the powers that be.
Again, too, there is the usual split among
the 150 members of the society, following
the example ot peoples the world over; those
out 01 power desiring to get in, while those
in are striving to remain there. But a sug
gestion that any of the members was of
nature so villainous as to contemplate such
a trick as threatened on the card, was
scouted by the bewildered trustees, and it
was agreed that the miscreant should be
looked for elsewhere.
Then after an interval of deep thinking
and much head shaking one of the number
came out with the startling statement that
he thought it must be a woman I Ochabail
For, he continued, only a woman would
think of attempting to set fire to a
building at 10 o'clock at night when the
hall was full of people, and, beside, he had
reason to think that there was a certain
young woman who was very much incensed
that a certain young man should spend so
much of his time in "turning when be
might be so much more profitably occupied,
Next in order came the suggestion that
there were some members of the community
at large who were antagonistic to the uprising
of the friendly tankard and the conviviality
consequent thereon, and who, perhaps, had
hit on this scheme with the hope of dispers
ing the nightly social gatherings.
It was agreed there might be something
in this, but the discussion ended with as
much enlightenment as when it began, and
the only measure that it was conceded could
be immediately taken was that of convening
the ruling authorities in solemn conclave
and laying the matter in all its deep signifi
cance before them. Meanwhile the Hall
is there, and last night a nnmber of young
men were exercising on the various ma
chines, and seemed still to have a long hold
on life.
The Name ot the Miners Delecates to the

John Costello, member of the General
Executive Board, Knights of Labor, was in

The Lincoln School Board muddle is un
changed, except that Director Cand stated
last night that as all the rooms in the
school are now supplied with teachers and
there is nothing mandatory abonl the elect

doubt of the effect of Judge White's recent
order. A meeting will be held sometime this
week at which an effort will be made to
straighten out the trouble.

The Finest Dinner Ever Prepared at the
Daqnesne No Outsider Were Admitted
and Nothing; Was Given Oat.
The wealthiest crowd of banqueters
gathered together around the festive board
since the convention of bankers about two
years ago, was a quiet little dinner party
given at the Hotel Duquesne last evening.
There were 23 persons in the party, and it is
safe to say that they were worth twice that
many millions.
The dinner was the most expensive ever
prepared under the direction of Culinary
Artist Menjou. It was impossible to get a
peep at the tables or the assembled guests,
owing to the Btrict orders issued to the hotel
proprietor. Before sitting down the party
gave instructions that no persons whatever
were to be admitted, and thus barred them
selves from the congenial company of the
hotel press representatives. They probably
survived and were able to get along, but
with the exception of the names the re
porters could get nothing. Speeches were
made, but the speakers probably did not
care to see them in print, and would not
allow a report to be taken. The banquet
lasted until after midnight. The 23 gentle
men present were:
Andrew Carnegie, H. C. Frick, John W.
Chalfant, Thomas M. King, J. V. Patton,
Charles F. Mayer, President of the Balti
more and Ohio road; Colonel J. S. Schoon
maker, Eobert Mayer, John McCleave, A.

The Pennsylvania Storage Company Apply

Attorney Edwin S. Carpenter in behalf of
the Pennsylvania Storage Company yester
day gave notice that on October 15 an appli
cation would be made to the Governor for a
charter. The Pennsylvania Storage Com
pany was organized within the last two
weeks, and consists of the following named
five gentlemen: John W. Haney, E. F.
Pearson, James F. Keenan, H. S. Toynbee
and Edwin S. Carpenter.

Everything pertaining to the storage and
warehouse business will come within the
scope of the new company, and it is said the
great increase in the storage trade for some
years past in Pittsburg promises great suc
cess for any well managed company.
It is not yet known what the capital stock
of the company will be, but it is expected
to reach the round figure of $100,000 before
the end of the year. The large tour-story
building on the corner of Water and West
streets has been secured lor a warehouse,
and is now undergoing extensive repairs.
A large steam elevator will also be built

New Tork Bequests the Opinion of
Snperintendent Hamilton.
He Describes tne Benefits It Wonld Bring
to Central Park."
Superinteudent William Hamilton, of
the Allegheny parks, received yesterday
from one of the principal daily newspapers
of New York City a request for an expres
sion of his opinion "as to the damage which
would result to a cultivated park like Cen
tral Park from holding therein the World's
Fair of 1892."
Mr. Hamilton sent his reply early last
evening. Later he was seen by a reporter.
He had not retained a copy of his message,
but he gave the following aa the substance
of what he had wired:.
"Instead of any damage being done to a
public park like Central Park by the
World's Fair, I think it would be a very
great benefit Any temporary damage that
may be done to the lawn can be fully re
paired within -six months after the fair
closes. New Tork has no horticultural
buildings of any kind in its park. The
World's Fair commission would necessarily
have to erect grand horticultural buildings,
which would be erected with a view to
their remaining permanently. The growers
of hardy plants in Europe and America
wonld not plant less than 600,000 of snch
plants on the horticultural grounds. There
fore, instead of being any damage it would
be of Immense value, not only to Central
Park, but to horticulture in general
throughout the country."
In the course of a brief conversation Mr.
Hamilton said that he was in favor of, New
York as the location of the World's Fair.
He considers that it is, in- every way, pre
eminently adapted for such an exposition.
Mr. Hamilton has been in receipt of private
advices as to what is being done in New
York to secure the Fair. While he does
not feel at liberty to reveal the details of
this information, he said: "Few people
know what has really been done in New
York in regard to this affair. As a matter
of fact, they have secured pledges, as good
as gold, to the amount of $20,000,000. By a
general agreement among the editors of the
New York newspapers the matter has been
kept secret It is considered that the time
is now ripe to make it public, and I believe
that all the details will be published to-morrow
morning in the New York papers.
Such a sum will cast the $5,000,000 sub
scribed in Chicago into insignificance,"
In this connection it may be interesting
to publish the statement niade to a Dis
patch reporter by Mr. Frank Brobst, the
chief clerk of the celebrated Palmer House,
of Chicago, who has been visiting his
mother in Allegheny. Mr. Brobst said:
"Although Chicago has secured pledges for
$5,000,000, that it is bnt the beginning ot
what it will do. The millionaires ofthe
city, as a rnle, have not done anything yet
Mr. Potter Palmer, the owner ot the Palmer
House, is in Europe. He is expected home
soon. Such men as Philip Armour, the
great dressed beef man, and Marshal Field,
the drvgoods prince, have not said what
they will do. They are awaiting Mr. Pal
mer's return. As soon as he arrives some
ofthe richest men in the city will hold a
conference and decide upon their subscrip
tions. I venture to say that they will as
tonish the country."
Half Rates to the National Capital via
Pennsylvania Railroad.
Apart from a presidental inauguration
no more brilliant event has ever occurred
in Washington than the triennial conclave
of Knights Templar from October 8 to 11,
1889. Every three years this event attracts
the attention of the country to some city,
but for many years past Western cities have
enjoyed the honor. Washington is now the
favored point, and it may well be said that
no city in the world is better adapted to
such a purpose. Wide avenues, hedged by
handsome buildings, form a background
for a grand spectacular display that cannot
be surpassed in America. It will be a gala
week inthe Capital, and thonsands of people
will go to witness it
In order that every inducement may be
offered, the Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany will reduce its rates to Washington
on this occasion by one-half. This company
will sell excursion tickets to Washington
from all ticket stations on its lines October
8, 9, 10 and 11, valid For return until Octo
ber 31, 1889, -at one fair for the round trip.
On the return trip a stop-off, within the
limit, will be allowed at Baltimore, Harris
burg, Williamiport.

Chief Brown Proposes to. Pitt a. CUnsBum
on the Police Force.
At the time the Italian detective was ap
pointed a suggestion was made to Chief
Brown that a Chinese officer tconld be ap
pointed iu the same capacity with beneficial
results to he police department An English-speaking
Chinaman is frequently
deeded in police circles, not so much for de
tective work as for an interpreter, as when a
Chinaman is arrested for any crime his
knowledge of English leaves him entirely
until he is released again.
Bev. E. E. Donehoo, who has been taking
an active interest in civilizing the Chinese,
has been advocating the necessity of attach
ing a Chinaman to the police force on the
ground that, through them inability to
make themselves understood when arrested,
they could not get justice either in the po
lice or law courts. Mr. Donehoo has one.
young Chinaman who is known as Jim
Blaine whom he places great confidence in
as a conscientious man and a good English
scholar. Jim Blaine, it is said, is a natural
ized citizen along with his other qualities,
and Mr. Donehoo thinks will be Just the
right man for the place.
Chief Brown has promised to accept Jim
Blaine on the force, under certain condi
tions, provided he furnishes vouchers and
makes a formal application the same as any
other police officer. The conditions under
which Jim Blaine will go on duty are that
he will only receive salary for the work he
performs, such as interpreting, as a witness,
or any other work he may be required to' do.
