Legislation Accessary to Dispose of the
XETV PHASE OF THE SCHOOL PE0BLE1I
At the several masses in his church yes
terday Bev. Father Sheedy delivered a
short talk to his parishioners on the ency
clical issned by Cardinal Gibbons on the
subject of parents sending their children to
the public schools. Father Sheedy stated
that the public press had led people to be
lieve that the Cardinal had issued an order
prohibiting Catholic children from attend
ing the public schools. He stated that no
such order had been issued by Cardinal
Gibbons, or he would have some
official communication, in regard to it He
stated that the only order known about it
was the general legislation promulgated by
the Council of Baltimore. If there were
any additional or supplementary orders
issued, thev would come through Kt Rev.
Bishop Phelan. He stated that the enemies
of the parochial school system v ere greatly
chagrined at the construction the press put
upon the encyclical and the way it was ac
cepted by parents.
Jfatner bheedy is now at wore upon the
programme forthe exercises attendant upon
the opening of his new school on Fenn
The opening will last about one week,
and will not only be a new thing in this
city, but will be replete with novel and
interesting features. Governor Beaver and
all the city and county officials will be
invited to be present the first day and make
addresses. The invitation will be mailed to
the Governor in a few days.
The idea of inviting the Governor and
others is taken from the St. Vincent's
School opening, conducted by Bishop Foley,
of Detroit, several weeks ago. The build
ing is one of the finest in Detroit, and at
the opening Governor Luce and a number
of the State and city officials were present
and made speeches appropriate to the occa
sion. The event was a marked one in the
city of Detroit, and did much to cement the
feeling between Catholics and Protestants
about parochial and public schools.
The formal opening of Father Sheedy's
school will probably occur on Thanksgiving
Day, the date not yet having been fixed.
The dedication ceremonies will probably be
conducted by Bishop Phelan. All the
prominent persons in ecclesiastical and
civil lite in the city will be invited to at
tend. A special invitation will bo sent to
those who contributed to the fund for the
erection of the school A great many of
these are non Catholics.
DONATION OF A FLAG.
To show the patriotism of the school,
Nicholas Brady, a prominent business and
Grand Army man of the First ward, has
donated a large silk American flag to be
placed upon the dome.
In the evening there will be a concert,
etc On the second evening an elaborate
banquet will be served in the school hall.
It will be interspersed with vocal and in
strumental music Upon the following
evening a bazaar will be held, at which
recitations and tableaux will be given. On
the fourth evening a light dramatic enter
tainment will be given and the "opening"
will close with an operetta on the night fol
lowing. If the building is finished in time
the school year will begin November L
The plastering is now being done and the
A matter which is now bothering the di
rectors of the First ward is what will likely
become of their school after the parochial
school gets under way. The latter will be
able to accommodate nearly 400 children, or
more than the Catholic school population of
the ward. This is about 350, and a majority
ot the children are now attending the public
school. "When the new school opens these
children will be drawn oh, and the public
school will be almost depleted.
FEW CniLDEEX LEFT.
The directors expect that. there will be
between 50 and 100 children -Jeit in the
public school, and in time this number will
dwindle down to almost nothing. Superin
tendent Lnckey states thatthe tailing off in
the number of children attending the school
is due to the fact that their parents have
moved to the Bast End and other places.
Former dwellings have been converted into
workshops and foundries, and in a short
time there will be few families left.
At present there are 3 teachers and 1
principal employed by the city in the
Echool. The law allows 40 pupils as the
minimum number to each teacher. When
the new school opens, 2 of the teachers
now employed will have to be dropped.
If it should come to pass, as expected,
that there will be no children going to the
public school, the board of directors will
have a school building on their hands with
no way of getting rid of it. The building
and grounds belong to the taxpayers of the
ward, and there is no law allowing the di
rectors to dispose of the money arising from
the sale of the property. Superintendent
Luckey holds that special legislation will be
necessary to get rid of the building, and the
directors sav they are ready to hear sugges
tions. In Philadelphia all school property
is controlled by the Central Board. When
one district is depopulated the buildings
and grounds are sold and the proceeds used
to erect new buildings in other new dis
tricts. FATHEB SHEEDY'S FLAX.
Father Sheedy does not thint that special
legislation is necessary to dispose of the
propertv should it be found necessary 4o do
so. When interrogated about the matter
yesterday he said:
"I do not think there is any need of
special legislation, as I am satisfied that
the taxpayers would get the worst of it any
way. It it is found necessary to sell the
building and grounds it could be done. A
trustee could be appointed to hold the lunds.
As long as these funds last let the taxpay
ers of the ward be exempt from public
school taxation. Let the district be 'con
nected with the Second or Fourth ward
schools as a sub-district. We would be as
sessed our shore to maintain the sub-district,
and this could be paid from the funds
held by the trustee. As long as the funds
lasted the taxpayers of the ward would
really be exempted from taxation."
A statement lurnished by one cf the di
rectors of the school shows that the receipts
last year were 4,730 08. The running ex
penses were $2,492 2L This statement is for
the year ending Jane 7, 1689.
THEI WANTED A CHAT.
How a. Tonus; Man and Ills Girl Got Into
Joseph Boger and Bosa Beck were ar
rested by Officer Messner last night on
Wylie avenue, near KirkpatricK street It
is alleged by the officer that the prisoners
sat down on the doorstep of John Marion's
house, No. 477 Wylie avenue, to iave a
little chat Mr. Marion ordered them away,
and after he had closed the door, Boger
threw several bricks at the door. Thev
were locked up in the Eleventh ward sta
tion, but in a short time friends left a de
posit for their appearance this morning.
A FAREWELL SERMON.
The Rev. Dr. Hammond Tlslta His Flock
Before Going twaj-Smoking; Not the
Cause of HisLenvIne".
The Kev. E. D. Hammond preached his
farewell sermon yesterday morning to a
large congregation. It was evident that
a large portion of the people were deeply
affected because their pastor, whom they
knew so well and respected so highly, was
about to sever his connection with them to
start "in fields of labor new."
The reverend gentleman preached an ele
quent sermon, laying great emphasis on the
unity that ought to exist between the pews
and the pulpit, and exhorting tbem to at
tain to thesummitof usefulness in thesphere
in which they live. In conclusion he bade
them a long farewell, hoping to meet them
in another land.
Dr. Hammond spent yesterday afternoon
and evening visiting his late flock. All the
congregation were sad at parting with one
who, by his cordial sympathy, had endeared
himself to them.
A writer in the New York Examiner
states that it was not the late smoking epi
sode that caused Dr. Hammond to sever his
connection with the Shady Avenue Baptist
Church. He was desirous of having a much
finer church and Sunday school. He wanted
to extend the power of the church, and to do
this he recognized that it was nec
essary to have a church sufficient
ly attractive to draw the people A
number of conservative men in the
congregation could not see it in the same
light, and were content to pursue the beaten
track. This dissimilarity of feeling forced
him to look for a field of labor which would
be more congenial to his taste and fully in
accord with the spirit of the times. Brook
lyn Tabernacle was the open sesame, and to
this new field he will go. Pittsburg's loss
will be Brooklyn's gain. Dr. Hammond
leaves here amid the heartiest well wishes
of all who knew him.
W. H. BBOWS'S DEATH.
The Sad Result of a Visit to a Lntvrenee-
W. H. Brown died yesterday morning at
the West Penn Hospital from peritonitis,
and an inquest will be held over his remains
On "Wednesday evening, Brown, while
under the influence of liquor and in com
pany with another man, was walking on
Thirty-sixth street, and fell upon his
stomach on the curbing. His companion
fell over him, and Brown suffered internal
injuries which developed peritonitis. He
was removed to the hospital Friday morn
ing. The deceased was well-known in Law
renceville. He was a widower. 56 years of
age, and lived at No. 169 Thirty-uixth
street He was the first roll turner em
ployed at Carnegie, Phipps & Co.'s mill at
Thirty-third street, and had been considered
the finest in the State. His reputation as a
turner is known over the entire country.
Brown was not by habit a drinking man
and indulged only at long intervals. He
leaves two grown children, one son and a
daughter, who are indignant, claiming that
their father had been enticed into a "speak
easy" on Thirty-sixth street. The funeral
will be held to-morrow.
A BREWEEI MEETING.
The Option or the EntlUU Syndicate to be
Closed on Tuesday,
All sorts of rumors are afloat about the
operations of the English brewery syndicate.
It is understood on very good authority
that the firm of Frauenheim & Yilsack's
brewery held a meeting in the brewery office
yesterday afternoon. It was not known
positively what the object of the conference
was, but it is said that it was convened to
take some final action about the offer of the
The offer of the syndicate is claimed to be
exceptionally good in the case of this
brewery, and the outcome on next Tnesday
will be watched with interest The time
for the option, will expire on that day, and
some of the brewers say that if the English
men fail to gobble up "the Pittsburg brew
eries an attempt will be made to form a
brewery trust in the city.

Messrs Edwardo Aguire and Melchior
Bustamante, two gentlemen from the Argen
tine Republic, are staying tor a fewdays at the
Monongahela. They have both been in the
States lor the first time, and are very much
surprised at the vastness and completeness of
our industrial plants and traveling facilities.
In the course of a conversation last night
Senor Aguire referred to the lack of facihties
for commercial exchange between the Arcen
tine States and the Northern Continent. Snch
merchandise as agricultural implements.sewtng
machines, typewriters, etc, for which there
was a daily increasing demand, where Imported
by the roundabout way of Liverpool, being
shipped from New York to that port and
thence transhipped to Bnenos Ayres. By this
route, out of the way as it was. such articles of
commerce were imported at a cheaper rate than
by the existing lines via Rio Janelro,and in con
siderably less time. He said that a line ot
steamships running direct to Buenos
Ayres, if subsidized at the start, would
be or the greatest benefit to the Argentine
States, as well as of profit to American
exporters, and would receive the support o.f
their merchants who now are compelled to
trade with Belgium and England. From the
former country they import most of their rails,
for which, eight months ago, they were paying
$11 per ton. They receive about 200,000 immi
grants annually, principally from (southern
Ensope, the bulk of them being from Italy.
Italians were immediately sent up country,
and Mr. Aguire spoke of them as making very
good agriculturists. Politically everything
was quiet Their President was elected for a

was in favor ot increased trade with
the Northern States and would promote
means for additional intercourse as far
as in his power, sir. Aguire compared
Buenos Ayres with Chicago, and as rivaling
that city in its wide thoroughfares and progress
in building and extending its area. One of
the banks, he said, the Provencal, had $95,000,000
on deposit, more than was possessed by the 30
banks of Chicago. As an example of the stand
ing of some of their business men, he said that
a jeweler in Bnenos Ayres named Tornqnist
bad lately taken up municipal bonas in his own
band to the amount of 10,000,000. Senor Mel
chior Bustamante's father, who is an extensive
engineer, is engaged at present in constructing a
line of road to Mcndoza, which, when finished,
will be extended across the Cordilleras to San
Iago. The two gentlemen purpose troing on to
Washington to have a talk with their represen
tative, thence to New York and home by Liver
pool, a route, they say, both shorter and cheaper
than via Bio Janeiro.

Key. David Metheny's Mission Work
in and Near Ancient Tarsns.
AMONG WORSHIPERS OF THE SUN.
Descendants of the Heathen Tribes Expelled
WOKE THAT HAS BEEK ACCOMPLISHED
Bev. David Metheny addressed the con
gregation of the Central Beformed Presby
terian Church, on Sandusky street, last
evening, on his work and experiences as a
missionary at and near Tarsus, in Syria.
Bev. Mr. Metheny was long ago a resident
of Pittsburg. He practiced medicine on
Penn avenue, and attended the Central
Church when Bev. Dr. Thomas Sproull, the
father of the present pastor, was the preacher
there. He felt last -evening as if he were
getting back home after many years. In a
few days it will have been 23 years since
Mr. Metheny went to Asia Minor as a
missionary, working along the northeastern
coast of the Mediterranean, with headquar
ters at Tarsus. The most southern school is
at Arvad, the home of the ancient Arvad
ites, whose descendants still live there and
practice the rites of their remote ancestors.
Mr. Metheny is a son-in-law of Mr. -David
Gregg, of Allegheny.
He exensed himself for going into the de
tails of the work in Syria, by saying that he
had been astounded at the ignorance of
members of the church concerning the very
location of the mission. One good brother
had asked him in what part of Afghanistan
Tarsus was situated, and others had put to
him equally ridiculous questions.
The people of Syria, he said, are in large
part the descendants ot the Canaanite tribes
whom Joshua expelled from Palestine. In
the territory 250 miles long, over which his
mission field extends, there are 300,000 of
the descendants of these ancient pagans. In
that region there are 33 schools and preach
ing stations. The principal schools are at
Mersine, Tarsus and Adana. Messine is a
new city, 40 years old, upon the Mediterra
nean Sea. It is a commercial city of 8,000
inhabitants, and has a heavy export trade.
Tarsus has a population of 30,000. It is a
very ancient city, said to have been built by
Sardanspalus, the Assyrian conqueror. It
was visited by Cleopatra, and Cicero was
once its Governor. Great ruins attest its
former grandeur. The Saracen has ruled it
for 601 years, and it is continually dimin
ishing in size and influence.
All that -Mohammedanism can do for a
people is manifested in those plains of
Cilicia. The land is level and fertile, but
hot and tnalariaL Foreigners cannot, with
safety, dwell upon the lowlands, and the
missionaries have made their homes upon
the hills of the Taurus range. The sanitary
conditions in those Cilician towns are ut
terly bad. The death rate is high. Bev.
Mr. Metheny said that he knew a woman
who was the mother of 18 children. They
had married and had grandchildren. Of
all her descendants only 11 are living. In
the whole province of Cilicia there is not
one inhabitant where formerly there were
"WORK CONDUCTED SECBETLY.
When the mission work was begun a quarter
of a century ago the Government forbade it,
and it was carried on secretly. Mr. Meth
eny, being a physician, he went among the
people practicing medicine. In that way
he tormed their "acquaintance and gained
their confidence. Be privately talked to
tbem of the gospel, and wherever he went
he spread the word. In Tarsus a house was
rented and children were taken
there and taught. There are many
religious sects in Tarsus and all
violently opposed the mission work. Then
a famine came and when news of it reached
America money was sent to Tarsus in large
amount The missionaries used it to re
lieve the distress of the people. The chil
dren whom they had been teaching were
clothed and fed. This work effectually re
moved the prejudice of the people. After
many difficulties the Government at Con
stantinople permitted the American schools
to be conducted openly. The Sublime
Porte recognized the fact that the Americans
had no political designs in Asia Minor.
MEDICINE IS TAUGHT.
Wherever Christian teachers are set to
work they are taught the rudiments of
medicine and instructed in the use of the
simpler remedies. Through the practice of
the art of healing they attract thepeople and
secure their attention. The people who are
converted are too poor to organize self-supporting
churches. There are, under Mo
hammedan rule, a few who are very rich
and many who are very poor. The rich
will not listen to the preaching of Chris
tianity. Only the poor are willing to hear
the gospel. Men work there for lrom 5 to
12 cents a day. Since the close of the
Busso-Turkish war each pachalik or prov
ince has been compelled to pay annually
70,000 to the Russian indemnity fund.
This has greatly impoverished the people.
The usual utensils of a family, among the
working class, are a frying pan, a pot and a
wooden spoon; nothing more. The mem
bers of a family sleep together on a mat
upon the floor and have one common quilt
Bev. Mr. Metheny urged larger contribu
tions to the mission work. He said that in
six years the church in the United States,
with 121 ministers and an expenditure of
over 51,200,000, had added only 050 members
to the church. In the same period two
ministers and two missionaries had added 60
converts to the church.
SUN AND MOON WORSHIFEBS.
Iu a private conversation, Bev. Mr.
Metheny said of the people who are descend
ants of the ancient Canaanite, Hittites and
Arvadites: "Ostensibly they are Moham
medans, but in secret they still worship the
sun, moon and stars and the forces ot nature.
The men have secret societies which to me
seem to be similar to Masonry. They are
oath-bound, no women are admitted, and
any revelation of the secrets is punished
bv death. It .is the duty of those who
initiate a member to kill him if he becomes
apostate. If a member becomes drunk he
is guarded, so that he may not reveal any
mystery. The worship of Baal-Peor is still
carried on by them, with its vile rites.
They worship any maniiestation of the
power ot nature, the waving of the grass,
the shaking o'f a leaf, the ascending smoke,
the white crest upon the summit of a wave,
the flashing of a bright eye. A thorough
understanding of their religion would
throw a flood of light upon the mythology
of the ancient nations of Phoenicia and

OPENED FOE SEEYICE.
The Eighth V. P. Chapel In Allegheny Was
The new United Presbyterian Chapel on
Perrysville avenue, Allegheny, was formally
opened yesterday. Bev. T. A. Shaw, who
is at present supplying the pulpit, preached
a sermon in the morning, but the special
exercises of the day took place in the after
noon. Devotional service was conducted by Bev.
Shaw and Bev. G. W. McDonald, of the
Seventh Church, and addresses were made
by Bevs. W. H. McMillan, D. D., ot the
Second Church; D. F. McGill, ot
the Sixth, and J. W. Witherspoon,
D. D., of the Fifth. At 6 o'clock a
praise service and Bible readings were con
ducted by the Sabbath school, and reminis
cences ot the progress of the missions from
which the school sprung were recited by
those who were familiar ivlth them. In the
evening a sermon was delivered by Bev. J.
M. Fulton, D, D., of the Fourth Church.
During the afternoon and evening a col
lection was taken up to pay off the debt of
the building. It was intended to raise
$1,500, and Jn the two collections over
$1,400 were subscribed.
The church will be known as the Eighth
U. P., and already has a congregation of
some 40 families. It is the outgrowth of the
Bidgcwood, Jefferson and Lombard .street
m!s;ions,and is in a fair way to grow rapidly.
The building is rather pretty, built of brick
with stone trimmings and occupies a space
of 34 by 78 feet m a lot of 120 by 150 teet.

THE WORKS TO CLOSE OS WEDNESDAY.
Since the death of Garfield, Braddock has
not been in such mourning as she was yes
terday when the fact gradually began to
dawn on the people that they had in truth
lost Captain W. E. Jones, whom they had
become accustomed to look to as part of
their very existence. The people were
numbed, and their city, a city as of the
dead. Every place where a few people con
gregated could be heard sympathetic allu
sions to their calamity, and the general
feeling throughout the town was that Brad
dock had lost a man whose like they will
seldom see among them again, and the
company, an official whoso place will be
difficult to fill.
At 2 o'clock, a meeting called by the em
ploy es of the works by word sent rounc

MBS. JON ES IN POOE HEALTH.
Fears are entertained that Mrs. Jones
may breac down under tne bqock. j.ub
grief stricken lady has been in very deli
cate health for some time past, and yester
day her condition had become very serious.
Dr. Swan, a well-known homeopathist of
New York, arrived in Braddock in the
morning, and saw Mrs. Jones. He will re
main as a visitor for the next few days. The
tidings of her husband's sudden death were
not imparted to the bereaved lady until yes
terday morning. She held up very well under
it at first, apparently not fully appreciating
its full significance, but later in the day she
was nuite prostrated bv the intelligence.
The remains of the late General Manager
were conveyed to Braddock on the 9:40 train
last night It was the original intention of
the family to have detained them in this city
until the day of the funeral, Wednesday,
but Mrs. Jones so insisted on having the
body of her husband brought to his home
that the removal had-to be submitted to.
THE FACE DISFIGUBED.
It is feared that should Mrs. Jones insist
on seeing the body, which she very natur
ally and probably will, that she may sustain
a dangerous shock, since the. face is so much
disfigured and swollen as to be unrecogniz
able. The funeral is set for 220 on Wednesday
aKT moon, and the remains will be tempo
rarily placed in Mr. Mills' vault in the
Monongahela Cemetery. The remains will
lie there until the family lot is made ready
to receive it. They will then be taken up
and transferred to the cemetery near Camp
Copeland, where the lot is located. The lot
is under the shade of the Soldiers' Monu
ment, which the dead captain helped to
dedicate abont two years ago. The plot in
which his grave will be dug was selected by
himself on account of its proximity to the
The G. A. B. post will take charge of the

A few days prior to his unfortunate accir
dent Captain Jones was arranging for a re
union of the Colonel H. B. Hays 199, Turtle
Creek, the Braddock 181 and the Wilkins
burg 648, posts. The reunion will now take
place at his funeral. AVhen the Braddock
Post veterans had occasion to travel any
where, it was Captain Jones' invariable
custom to provide them with tickets. There
was a meeting of Major Lowry Post No.
648, Wllkinsburg, last night to make ar
rangements for the members to attend the
funeral, on Wednesday, in a body.
It was said yesterday in Braddock that no
effort would be made to fill the position oc
cupied by Captain Jones. The late General
Manager had grown up with the works, was
intimate with every detail, and sd was
singularly qualified for his important posi
tion. In future the duties pertaining to the
post will be divided.

Canningham & Company Sign the Scale at
a Critical Moment.
A BED LEXTEE MEETING WAS HOT HELD
L. A. 1418, Knights of Labor, mixers and
teasers, issned a red-letter call for a meet
ing in their hall on Carson street yesterday
afternoon. At the last moment it was
found unnecessary to hold the meeting, and
it was declared off.
The object was to declare a strike on ac
count of some trouble at Cunningham &
Co.'s window house. The firm at first re
fused to pay the advance of 5 per cent de
manded by the assembly on the
ground that they would be paying
more "than other firms. Last year
the wages paid by the firm were a little
higher than those paid by their competitors.
When the men presented their demands it
was found by the firm that the advance of
6 per cent was on list year's wages and
not on the scale. The firm had been. volun
tarily paying higher wages than the scale
called for, and objected to the advance- The
men then threatened to strike, and said they
would call the men out in the other booses,
This led to complications, as it woald pre
vent the window glass workers froaa turn
ing out any product The officers of the
local assembly asked the officers of the
Window Glass Workers Association itthey
would strike. They received a negativf re-"
ply and the case was carried to the execu
tive officers of D. A. No. 3 on Saturday.
Messrs. Wright and Costello, of the Oen
eral Executive Board, were in the citrtat
the time, and they were asked If Lv A." 390
would be ordered out
It was the first case of the kind since the
Window Glass Workers connected them
selves with thelC of L., and they were to
be asked to prove that they were Knighta of
Labor 'jy, refusing to work with non-union
mixers and teasers. This thev conld not do
on account of the agreement made with "the
manufacturers that thev would go to work
when the advance yas granted them.
Messrs. Wright and Costello deliberated on
the matter, and came to the conclusion that
L. A. 300 would be ordered out if the mix
ers struck. They could then make the claim
that the strike was ordered by the General
i-xecutive Board, and they had no recourse
but to go out. In this way Messrs. Wright
? aCSSUo th,0Sht the agreement made by
Iu A. 300 would not be broken.

ABpecial meeting of L." A. S681 has been

currently reported last week tw n .
three shops there was a scheme on foot to
make a reduction of wages. The men heard
of it, and will take steps to prevent the re
duction if possible.
