The Musicians' Trouble Now
BOTH FACTIONS TESTIFY.
2Jo Opinion Will be GiTen by the
Committee at Present.
THE SLATERS' CASE ALSO HEARD.
There Are 5ow Nearly 225,000 Members in
the Knights of Labor.
ITEMS GLEAKED AMONG THE WORKERS
A. W. Wright and John Cos tell o, mem
bers of the Knignts of Labor General
Executive Board, arriTed in the city yes
terday to investigate the difficulties between
the Musicians' Mutual Protectiue Union
and L. A. 15S3, and between L. A. 491, K.
of L., Slaters and the Marble and Slate
"Workers and Tile Layers Union.
This is Mr. "Wright's first yisit to this
city, but he is very well known on account
of his writings. He is a Canadian and
.hails from Toronto. He is pleasing in ap
.pearance, solidly built and wears full side
whiskers. Mr. Wright is one of the hard
est workers in the order, and is one of the
editors of the Journal of United Labor.
The inve6ticating committee, upon arriv
ing in the city, went to the Central Hotel,
where they held a semi-official court. They
eent for Master Workman Bottkay, of L. A.
15S5, which embraces the majority of the
members of the Great Western Band. The
"Master Workman furnished a list of the
names of the musicians in his assembly to
substantiate his statement that none of them
were expelled members of the M. M. P. U.
THE BAKD IS lif TO STAT.
In reply to the rumors that the band
would leare the Knights after the Exposi
tion closed, he stated that this was not true.
Thev not only intended to remain in the
order, but would try to orgamae a national
trades' district of musician". He said the
K. of L. organization was formed on ac
count of the professional musicians disliking
the methods of the M. M. P. U., which took
in anybody who passed an easy examina
tion. Representatives of the Musician's Mutual
Protective Union were then sent for,-and
last evening they gave their testimony. All
the documents in the case, with a list of the
expelled and suspended members of the
union were furnished the committee. A
full statement of the case was made and
they asked that the charter of L. A. 1583 be
withdrawn. The committee will hear both
sides again to-day, and will make their re
port to the General Executive Board at its
meeting in St Louis Monday next.
The slaters trouble was also ventilated by
both sides. In substance this is as follows:
About six months or more ago the members
of the Marble and Slate Workers' and Tile
Layers' Union struck against a number of
men workingin four&hops in this city, who
lad refused to j-in therr union. While the
strikers were out, Joseph L. Evans, who is
an organizer for D. A. No. 3, organized the
non-union men into L. A. 491.
THET ENTERED A TEOTEST.
The strikers were attached to the .Federa
tion o Trades and en ered a protest to the
Central 1 i Zes Council and to General Mas
ter Workman Powderly. Wheu the dele
gate from 491 applied "tor admission into
the Trades Council he was refused, and that
tody reported the matter to President
"Gompers, of the Federation, claiming tnat
the Knights ot Libor had organized
'"struck" men, in the face of an agreement
between the Federation and Knights of La
bor not to do so.
In the meantime Organizer Evans had ap
plied for a charter tor the new local assem
bly. While it was being made out a pro
test wasreceived at the K. of L. headquar
ters against issuing the charter. The names
on the protest were not the same as those who
had applied for the charter, and through a
clerical error the charter was granted. For
a time it looked as if the Federation and K.
of L. would get into a struggle over the
matter, until an investigation was ordered.
It is now an open question whether L. A.
491 will lose its charter or not. There is
nothing in the K. of L. constitution prohib-
iting the organization of a trade that al
ready hvs a trade union, although such a
more is not advisable.
GUAEDCfG HIS OPESIOX.
In speaking of the investigation last
night, Mr. Wright said: "We have heard
both sides in both cases, and I cannot say
what our report will be. I would not like
to express an opinion whether or not either
local assembly will be disorganized. It is
not advisable to organize a trade that
already has an organization in any city;
but if men prefer the K. of L. to a
trade union, that is their busi
ness, and there is nothing to pre
vent them from joining the order.
To make laws governing such cases as tVse
there will be a general meeting of the heads
of the different labor organizations in Phila
delphia October 14. Tne meeting will be
attended by the general officers ot the K. of
L., Federation ot Trades and the railroad
brotherhoods. We need general laws to ob
viate trouble between the different organiza
tions. The most important question is the
organization into an order of the bad mem
bers of another order. Uniform laws re
garding workms cards will also be made.
In Washington City there is a war going on
between the K. of L. carpenters and the
brotherhood. Tne former will-not recognize
the working cards of the latter, in retalia
tion for the treatment Knights have been
receiving from the brotherhood in other
cities. This has also been the case in Pitts
burg, where trades unions have refused to
recognize the K. ot L. working cards issued
to travelers in other citres.
A rLOUEISHINO OEDEE.
"I have written a reDlv to the statement
made in a Pittsburg paper last Sunday that
the K. of L. was going to pieces. The
reason the general lecturers were called in
was because the special lund for that pur
pose was exhausted. We could not use other
tunds to pay the expenses of the lecturers
because the constitution would not allow it.
The statement that the order is poor is id
iotic. According to our July reports a
per capita tax was paid on "over 207,000
members. This does not include the dis
tricts which have been exonerated on ac
count of strikes. At the General Asssem
bly we will have close on to 225,000 mem
bers iuygood standing. There will be about
140 delegates at the convention. A number
ot minor changes will be made in the con
stitution, and it will be made smaller. No,
Mr. Powderiy will not resign."
Mesir& Wright and Costello will hear
more testimony to-day, and will leave in the
evening for the Hocking Valley, where they
will attend a meeting.
A SETTLEMENT LXPECTED.
A Conference Called to heltlc the Southside
Tne coopers' trouble is now in a fair way
to be settled. M. C. Dolan, the proprietor
of the Southside shop, who refused to sign
the scale, has asked for a conference with

The association is now in a flourishing
condition. It was organized in this city on
April 16 of the present year, and embraces
nearly all the manufacturers of steam boil
ers in the country. James Lappan, of Pitts
burg, is President of the association.
WANT A NATIONAL UNION.
A Local Org-nnlzer to Amalg-amate
Marble nod Slate Cotters.
An effort is being made to organize the
tile layers, marble and slate cutters into a
national union and attach them to the
Federation of Labor. A. B. Smyth, of this
city, organizer for the Federation, has
issued a circular to the different unions
throughout the country, asking their views
upon the matter. If the majority of them
favor the proposition, a meeting will be held
at Boston to organize the national union. At
present these trades are organized in the
Knights of Labor and independent unions.
PACKERS STILL KICKING.
They Want n New Charter From the Gen
eral Executive Board.
L. A. 1653, Knights of Labor, glass pack
ers of this city, will make application to
the General Executive Board at their meet
ing in St. Louis Monday next for a charter
to take in all glasshouse labor not covered
by L. A. 300, the American flints and the
green bottle blowers' assemblies. The
charter to be asked for is similar to the one
held by L. A. 300, and the request indicates
that tb'e packers still want to get away from
D. A. No. 3.
STARTING A CHURCH.
Unitarians Are Orcnnizlng In Pittsburg Mr.
Andrew I'arneclo U Helping Them
An attempt, and a pretty thoroughly or
ganized one, is being made to establish a
Unitarian organization in this city. A
meeting was held at the residence ot Paul
Winsor, on Sellers street. East End, on
Sunday night, at which Eev. J. G. Town
send preached. So far 20 families have
given their adhesion to the movement, and
as they are influential, the promoters have
no fear that the congregation will soon
be in shape to demand recognition.
It was decided at Sunday night's meeting
to perfect the organization, in fact it was
perfected, and to get a hall in the central
portion of the city, and it is expected that a
charter will be secured 'ere long, so as to be
able to do all business necessary to secure
stability. Though the believers in Unitar
ianism have not attracted much attention in
this city, they are numerous, but scattered,
some living in the old citv and East End,
others on the Southside and in Allegheny
City and in Sewickley. The idea is to
secure a hall centrally located so that all
may have facilities to get together.
An informal meeting was held at Mr.
Langley's home on South Hiland avenue
last evening. Bev. J. G. Townsend, who
is heading the movement, was present Mr.
Townsend said that no room had as yet
been selected lor temporary services. The
choice wavered between the rooms of the
Mozart Club and the Grand Opera House.
Whichever place be selected a service will
certainly be held next Sunday.
Eev. Mr. Morehouse, of .New York, has
promised to preach, and a large attendance
is looked for. The Unitarian Association is
pledged to support the movement with
funds and interest. Mr. Townsend says
that the progress of Unitarianism in the
States during the past few years has been
During the last ten, years 135 new
churches were started, and many others
will shortly begin work. The headquarters
of the belief are Boston, and the New En
gland people appear to have taken far
more kindly to Unitarian tenets than those
of any other portion of the country,.
The Unitarian Association has a very
large annual expenditure. It pays the sal
aries of all the Unitarian teachers at the
universities, and assists young congre
gations with liberal advances. Many
old followers of the belief resides in and
around Pittsburg, so that the pioneer of
the enterprise have little fear about filling
their church. It is confidently stated that
Mr. Carnegie and other prominent citizens
regard the liberal mature of the project with
approval, and a good deal of material as
sistance is looked for from these quarters.

G. Browning, the good-humored gentleman
in charge, almost loses his temper at the
never-ceasing, everchanging mob of sight
seers. It is hard, however, to lose temper alto
gether with these jolly crowds. One cannot
help partaking of their mirth, while the
phonograph is, in the words of Wendell

cheek by jowl, with ears attentively listen
ing to the words of the wondrous machine.
One of the machines has a dozen double
ear tubes attached, so that 12 persons may
listen to what it is saying at the same time.
To watcn the grins and smiles on the 12
faces is interesting. There is a different
degree of laughter in each, because all are
impressed differently. Here comes an East
Ehd young gentleman who knows all about
the phonograph, and a hea'p more too. He
smiles in an ultra-superior manner as his
best girl puts the tubes to her dainty ears.
She is evidently quite delighted with what
she hears, for has not cunning Mr. Brown
ing sung a love song into the speaking tube?
Her pretty smiles induce the becoliared
knight by her side to listen too, so he says:
"Maudie, you hold my cane while I hear
what it says." So Maudie takes hold of his
ponderous walking stick, and Sir Lancelot
has his turn at the phonograph.
Bounces in a German lady from Troy Hill.
She listens a moment, and then laughs like
a thousand of bricks. She wags her head
from side to side, keeping time with'the air
of the song, and finally puts down the tubes
with a scream of merriment
"Coom ovare here, Hans," she cries;
"coom an' listen. Acbl it is goot."
Hans, a lengthy young manwith a blonde
mustache, refuses point blank to come near
the instrument. He declares he wants no
'lectric shocks, he don't. Persuasion is in
vain. He's been there before, and you
can't fool him.
Mr. Browning says that scores of people
go away every day firmly convinced that an
electric shock will certainly result lrom any
meddling with the mysterious mechanism.
Some funny remarks are made by the
The General JtesulL
hayseeds and other innocents who congre
gate about the stand. One old gentleman
knowingly observed that he "knew how
the darned affair was run. There's a man
hid under the platform and he does all the
talking. Any fool'd guess it was a fake."
A favorite question is: "Say, Mister,
aint this here worked by steam?" Mr.
Browning is often overwhelmed by all sorts
ot ridiculous questions. Oce man wanted
to know it it couldn't read newspapers.
Another was equally solicitous as to
whether it could translate languages. "Iseo
it is impossible to pierce the dense ignorance
of these people." said Mr. Browning, "sol
just tell them that it does read the newspa
pers. To the man who asked if it could
translate, I immediately answered that any-
was a wonderful machine."
There was a deaf olcTlady came along the
other day, and catching sig'ht of one of tbe
spare speaking tubes which was placed for
exhibition on a small side table,4esan to
examine it minutely. Presently she called
over Mr. Browning and asked whether
the object iu her hand was not a speaking
tube. Being informed that it was she at

once put her hand in her pocket and pro
duced her old speaking trumpet, saying:
"Here's my old one. What'il you take off
the price of the new tube for this?" She evi
dently thought Mr. Edison was a dealer in
appliances for the deaf. N
Mr. Browning sines his little song and
makes his little speech into the phonograph
early in the morning. There are a great
many uncomplimentary remarks made about
his vocal po'wers. One lady observed yester
day alter hearing the song, "What a horrid
voice. If I had that voice I certainly
shouldn't want to advertise it" Another
visitor remarked that the "phonograph
spoke through its nose."
This last speech annoyed the worthy di
rector of the show intensely.for he is an En
glishman, and considers that only Ameri
cans speak through the nasal organ. There
is a great deal ol competition among those
anxious to get inside the magic barrier and

A bevv of lair damsels 'vill come wheed

about the "lovely music;" and how "'Mrs.
So-and-So got in to hear it the other dav."
But all their efforts are vain. Mr. Browning
won't take the hint, and they have to ask
for permission before they can get in. Alto
gether the phonograph stand is a perfect
microcosm of human nature. From the
lackadaisical dude down to the country
cousin out for the dav and staring open
mouthed at the extraordinary "speaking
machine" almost every eccentricity in the
way of man is to be met with there. As for

too fascinating when a glorious pair of

relative of BobertBrowning.the other poet?"
A DEMENTED WOMAN
Caused No Little Excitement on the South
The police of the Southside were stimu
lated to mere than usual activity last
night by the presence of an alleged crazy
woman in their district Even Inspector
McAleese had heard of the matter, and had
gone over to help in capturing her.
"" The lidy, whoever she was, made her
appearance early in the evening, and it was
not long before a crowd of several hundred
person were following at her heels. She is
descr be 1 by some as being nearly six feet in
height, with a strong masculine face. She
wore a pair of boots and carried a bread
knife in one hand and a bundle wrapped in
a white cloth in the other.
She paraded the different streets, eluding!
tne enorts ot tne omcers to overuse ner,'
and her rambles gave rise to all sorts of wild
stories. It was said by some that her apron
was covered with blood; by others that she
had murdered a baby on Twenty-sixth
street, and by still others that the strange
apparition was a man in a woman's attire
carrying a baby. The police think that it
was some woman in a demented condition.
At last accounts she had not been captured.

Preparing to Build a Heavy Eetaining Wall
Along the Hill.
THE WATEE MAIN AB0YE THE SDEFACE
A peculiar work is under way on Howard
street, in the Twelfth ward of Allegheny.
Howard runs along the side of a steep hill,
parallel with and above East street. Resi
dents on the street say that every year there
is a movement of the hill, which cracks the
foundations of houses on the lower side of
the street, and causes sidewalks and pave
ments to reveal holes, tfhis summer there
has been an unusual landslide. It has been
going on slowly and imperceptibly, but with
serious results. At a point on Howard street
just above the Hope Biscuit Works the
street has sunk about a foot The sidewalk
on the eastern side of the street has gone
down two feet for about half a block, and a
large doable house, near the head of the
steps leading up from East street, has been
moved nearly a foot off its stone foundation.

It has been determined to build a strong

are being used, and the wall is being built

surface. The sinking of the street at that
point broke the large water main running
along Howard street A new main has been
formed above ground. The pipe has been
propped up about three feet above the sur

with the underground main on either side
of the sunken territory. When the retain
ing wall is built the main will be placed be
low the suriace.
THE STEEET ALMOST CLOSED.
The street at that point is almost entirely
closed to traffic. The people living in the
houses on the lower side of the street have
constantly been uneasy about their situa

some morning and find themselves living in
somebody's back yard down on Fast street
The one house which has been moved away
is tenautless, although it is a good building.

Dense crowds constantly crowd around H.
Kleber & Bros.' music stand at the east en
trance of the Exposition to see and admire
the musical wonders there exhibited the
finest pianos and organs of the present day,
and the crude efforts at piano making of 100
years ago. Look at tbe wonderful Stein

hibited and then upon the skinny, six
penny and six-legged and scrawny little
things or a piano made iu Pittsburg 100
years ago for the late Fred. .Lorenz, Esq.7

tracts Attention of Thousands.
A graceful figure, a beautiful face, bright
eyes, a smiling mouth and a most magnifi
cent costume, elegant of fashion and fabric
from tip to toe, made a combination that the
thousands of Exposition visitors yesterday
and last evening could not resist. Nor did
they try. Scarcely a moment of the' day
that there were not hundreds of pairs of ad
miring eyes riveted upon it
True it was a wax figure, and part of the
display of a large drygoods house (Boggs &
Bunrs, Aiiegneny;. uut mat detracted
nothing, and many were tbe kindly words
heard spoken of the firm, as well as words
of praise for the draper and his lady assist
ant. The noteworthy part of their work is
that the goods have not been, cut, nor is
there a threader button around it.
Dozens of pieces of goods as handsome as
tbe bride's costume itself lie at her feet She
seems to say, "See what I have had to select
from." And she had had the entire stock
of rich and beautiful goods that go to make
up the new stock of this great firm's fall im
portations. Their stand is worth seeing, but it -promises
greater things at the store.

For several months large quantities of pig-
iron have beea stolen from the yard of the

company were unable to discover the cause

metal, 'From their stories, it appears that
the defendants were in the habit of going to
the lumber yard very early in the morning,
before any workmen were present either
there or about the Westinghouse works
nearby. They would take Willey's wagon
and team, put on a load of metal, drive
away and sell it, and return to the lumber
yard before the other workmen appeared.
Many loads of metal were thus disposed of
during tbe summer, the loads being sold, at
about half price, for from $4 to ?6.
