TH-PITTSBTJEG DISPATCH," 'TkUB'OC0Bm,BflBmf-
A NEW FIRE ALARM.
Pittsburg's Appliances Are
Away Out of Late.
A $50,000 APPARATUS
Must be Provided to Cover the Exi
gencies of the Fntnre.
QUEER APPLIANCES DESCBIBED
The Old Fire Alarm Was Put in bj Game
well in 1S66, 23 Years Ago.
HOW ALARMS OF FIUE AKE HANDLED
1 Chief J. O. Brown, ot the Department of
Public Safety.having reorganiied the practi
cal workers of the fire department and
placed them to his satisfaction, has non
turned his attention to remodeling the en
tire apparatus in the top of City Hall by
which alarms of fire are sent in and the fire
departmeut hustled out to quash the incen
diary flames. To accomplish this end about
50,000 will be expended, but taxpayers are
not to grumble -when increased precautions
against damage to their homes are implied
in the new deal.
Just below the huge bell which peals
forth its deep toned alarm which indicates a
blaze somewhere in the confines of Pitts
burg, is a square room filled with elaborate
machinery. On one side of tne room are
hundreds of Leyden jars which generate
electricity. Then there is a long counter
extending across the room, into the interior
of which run scores of wires so arranged
that when any one of the 248 boxes in the
city is "turned in," an electric spark dashes
into the fire alarm room and apprises the
vigilant guardians as to the location of the
soars necessary explanation.
There are eight signal lines rnnning into
the switch-board over which the alarms
come in. By a complex system of electrical
connections the arrival of an alarm rings
the number of the box struck upon gones of
about six inches in diameter. Then one of
the operators rushes to the "repeater," an
oblong box bearing three dials upon its face,
and turns the hands upon the dial so as -o
indicate the number struck. If it is "123,"
the hand of the first dial is turned to "1,'"
the hand of the second to "2," and the third
hand to "3." Then the operator jabs in
a big electric button and "Big Sam's" so
norous voice wakes the echoes. Meanwhile
the switch-board has not been idle. So soon
as the signal lines have recorded the box
number the levers are shifted and the sevn
alarm lines are brought into play. Over
these is the nnmber of the box sent out to
the 17 engine houses of the city. The alarm
lines have a varying number ot engine
houses upon them. The line out Penn
avenue has 6, 9, 8, 16 and 4. Assistant Chief
Coates and the Seventeenth ward bell as
connections. The line on Filth avenue has
4, 5, 14, Assistant Chief Steele and the
Eleventh ward bell, and so on.
By extra connections the Central
station, police patrol station, Duquesne
engine house and one or two other places
hive "jokers," which are operated so rap
idly that the stroke on the joker gone is
heird a fraction of a second before "Big
Sam" sneaks, this being due to the weight
of the hammer attached to the big fellow,
and the slowness of its motion compared
with the alacrity of electricity.
IT IS TVOBN OUT.
Alonj'the frou.of the counter are eight
galvanometers, which exactly resemble large
compasses. The needles indicate the elec
tric currents, and revolve around a set of
graduated figures, by which trouble on the
signal or alarm lims can be instantly de
tected and located, thus allowing the re
pairers to get at a crossing or obstruction of
the lines in short order. The network of
connections for all this system is necessarily
elaborate, but is concealed from sight in
order to protect it irom injury. The deli
cate adjustment of the machinery is one of
the niceties of electricity, ana tuere is al
most perfection in the matter of assured re
liability. The main switch-board is 23 years old.
It was put in place in 18G6, as a silver tab
let states, the committee having been
Messrs. John H. Hare, "Vm. 2f. Ogden and
"Win. M. Brown.
Assistant Superintendent McClatchey
said in regard to the switch-board, when
it was first put up it was twice too large for
the needs ot that time. Now it is and has
been for several years so crowded as to en
danger the precision of the service. In
firemen, engine house apparatus and means
of sending alarms, we are abreast with the
times. But in our headquarters we are a
qjarter of a century in the rear of the pro-
cateion. We need a repeater of the auto
matic sort, one that will send the alarm out
as soon as it is struck in the box. At pres
ent we are forced to lose 10 to 15 seconds, no
matter how fast we move, for the alarm must
be rung twice before we can start the
machinery. Even seconds are precious
when fires are gaining force. It haB been
decided to renew the entire interior machi
nery of the department."
A costly improvement.
"Do you remember what the present ap
"It is my impression that the cost was
15,000. The plans and specifications which
Superintendent Mead has just completed
tall for an apparatus about three times the
tire of the one now in use. There are now 15
lircuits in use, and the new switchboard
must have at least 40. The whole citv has
been wired within the last three years"with
the best of materials, and a new apparatus
will place the Pittsburg fire alarm on a
first-class footing. The growth of Pittsburg
is taken into account iu the new plans.
"What has it averaged? About ten new
boxes per -vmum. The process ot replacing
the apparatus will have to be very ingenious
in order to obviate impairment of the ser
vice. Oh, yes. The Gamewell is almost
without a rival in the equipping cities with
fire telegraphic apparatus. I cannot esti
mate the cost oTf the new apparatus, but
proposals will be received within a few

Mr. and Mrs. George Smith, of Seventh

At the next Presbyterian ministers'
meeting, to be held in the parlor of the
First Church, on Monday next at 10:45
A. M., some delicate questions will be sub
mitted to be answered by the persons whose
names are attached below. They are in
tended to draw out discussion. A lively
meeting is anticipated. Here is a list of
EFirst Should church sessions givo good

Rev. J. J. Beaconi, D. D.
Fifth How can church choirs which aro dis
posed to talk during the service be kept from

Sixth A correspondent writes to know why,
in the revision of the standards of our church,

good pleasure from all eternity elected some to
everlasting life," etc conld not be changed to
correspond with the declaration, "God so loved
the world," etc. Was God moved to call men

HITHER AND THITHER.
JIoiemtDU of Flttsburcera and Others of
Bishop Whitehead, of the Pittsburg
Diocese of the Protestant Episcopal Church, is
in New York City as a member of the House of
Bishops of tho General Convention, now in
session at St. George's Church, Stuyvesant
Square. The delegates from the Pittsburg
Diocese are: Clergy: Rev. Samuel Maxwell,
rector of Trinity Church, Pittsburg; Rev. Mari
son Bjllesby, rector of Emmanuel Church,
Allegheny; Rev. Henry Purdon, of St. James
Church, Titusville, Pa., and Rev. J. H. B.
Brooks, of Christ Church, Oil City, Pa. Tho
laymen are: T. C. Jenkins, Trinity Church,
Pittsburg; William Metcalf, St. Peter's Church,
Pittsbmg; Hill Burgwln, of the Church of tho
Good Shepherd. Hazelwood. and H. Lu Foster,
of Christ Church, Oil City. In conversation
with BiSbop Whitehead prior to his departure
he stated that tbe convention would deal meth
odically with the matters to come before it,
and that, in his opinion, no serious divisions
would take place upon the very important mat
ters of revision of the prayer book and hymnal,
as each change would engage the sense of tbe
whole convention, and the majority would ob
tain in all cases. Bev. Samuel Maxwell stated
that he did not believe that the talk in favor of
a change in tbe title of the church would
amount to much, for the very reason that
millions of property held by tbe "Protestant
Episcopal" Church would be clouded in title if
held under any other denominational name.
Litigation would be entailed, aud all to no good
purpose. The Honse of Bishops of the con
vention, consisting of 63 Bishops, and cor
responding to the United States Senate, will be
presided over by Bishop Williams, ot Connecti
cut, by the death of Bishop Lee, of Delaware,
the senior American liishonol the church.
Tho Lower House consists of 400 clergy and
laity, and will be presided over by Rer.il organ
Dix. The latter Chairmanship is elective.
General James S. Negley left for New
York last night Speaking of river matters the
Congressman of a term said that tbe import
ance of opening up the navigation of the Ohio
to the requirements of its trade could not be
overestimated. Pittsburg, he said, was the
initial point as well as the terminus of what
should bo a very extensive river transportation
trade, and business men wonld recognize the
recessity of having adequate carrying facilities
along the river, since they would tend to
diminish tho freight charges of tbe railroads
by a lively competition He said that the coal
markets were hare and tbe river blockaded,
owing to tbe construction of the bridges at
Stdubcnrille and Beaver, and that the free
navigation of the Ohio was a matter of more
than local import; it was of national conse
quence, having regard to tbe extensive nature
of its trade, and its numerous sources of traffic
extending over each side of its waterway and
along the vallev of the JIississiopL The Pitts
burg and Lake Erie Railroad was indifferent
as regards tbe requirements of traffic, else its
bridge at Beaver would have been completed
long since. The country was suffering through
the indifference of a railroad corporation
which decided to construct a bridge by the
slow and old-fashioned method of employing
jajse worfc. in oruer 10 save money.

E. A. Bigler, Democratic candidate for
State Treasurer, passed through the city to-day
on his way to bold a conference in Franklin,
where he hopes to fire the Democratic heart of
Venango county. To a Dispatch reporter he
made tho following prediction about the vote
of next month: "Bojer, 375,000; Bigler. 325,001"
This cheerful prophecy for Boycrites indi
cates that ex-Collector Bigler bas become ac
quainted with the fact that it is hard to kick

TIN PLATE RESUMED.
The First Manufactured in This
Country in 20 Years Shows Up.
WHAT THE TARIFF MAY EEST0EE.
How the Product is Made, and Why it At
tracts Each Attention.
INDDSTfilAIi HEWS NOTES OP THE DAI
The first tin plate to be made complete in
this country for the past 20 years or more is
now being manufactured at the Exposition.
Yesterday the plant was put into operation,
and the lawmakers of the nation will now
have a practical demonstration that tin plate
can be made in this country.
For nearly 20 years the tinned plate
manufacturers of this country have been
trying to get the tariff on tin advanced
high enough to protect the industry in
America. The duty at present is one cent
per pound, which permits the English
manufacturers to ship their tin to the
United States and sell it much cheaper
than it couid be made in this country.
This entirely killed the business, and
until now it has never been revived.
The tariff of 1 cent per pound was put
upon the tin in a novel way. In 1861,
when the government adopted a protective
tariff policy, tin plate was classed among
the protected industries. Owing to the
interpretation placed upon the law by Sec
retary Fessenden, of the Treasury Depart
ment, the duty was reduced from 2i cents
to 1 cent per pound. Tbe clause covering
the matter read "Tin plate, and iron gal
vanised or coated with any other metal shall
pay duty at 2 cents per -pound."
HE MIXED THOSE COMMAS UP.
The Secretary decided that the clause was
wrong in punctuation and blamed a clerk
for making a mistake by putting a comma
after the word tin plate, when he should
haveput it alter the word iron. He said
that in order to come nnder the provision
tin plates as well as iron, must be calvan-
tzed or coated a second time. He
therefore classed tin and iron plates
with tin in sheets or pure tin, at 15 per cent
ad valorem. Since then the trade has drift
ed into the hands of a few importing houses,
who have since enjoyed a monopoly. The
annual consumption ot tin in the United
States is estimated to amount to 525.000,000
to 35,000,000. Since the decision ot the
Secretary this money has been flowing into
England instead of figuring in this coun
try's balance of trade.
The plant at the Exposition is in the
west end of the building and was estab
lished by the American Tinned Plate As
sociation. LOOK TO PITTSBIJBO.
The object of the establishment of the
P;a.tm p,i.tts.bnrS is to awaken the interest
of the public in tbe matter and practicallv
demonstrate that tin plates can be made
here as well as anywhere else in the world.
The plant was started yesterday afternoon

through five highly polished rolls, and
aiterward cooled off. It is then placed in a
box of bran, and from there goes into a box
of middlings, where it is cleaned.
rOLISHDfQ THE PLATE
The plate is laid on a table and polished
with a sheep skin. The tin is then branded
according to its quality. The defective ma
terial is canea water plate.
W. C. Cronemyer, Secretary of the asso
ciation, stated yesterday that the process
they had is better than the method of mak
ing the plates in England. There they
'flux" them and this often leaves impuri
ties under the surface of the tin coating.
These defects are known as pin holes. The
tin made yesterday could be bent and
twisted in every way but the coating would
not crack or come off.
Before the tariff of 1 cent per poqnd was
placed on the product there were three tin
plate mills in this country. Thev.were
situated at Leechburg and DemmleV, Pa.
and Wellsville, O. Two of them made
what is known as terne plate, which is the
heavier or inferior grade of tinware.
THI WAKT AN ADVANCE.
Bidden Issne a Circular Tinging
The machinery molders of this city yester
day issued a circular that fairly tinges with
sarcasm. They are about to ask for an ad
vance of wages, claiming that it was prom
ised them before the recent Presidental
election, and they have not secured it yet.
A meeting has been called for Saturday
evening in Imperial Hall, when the de
mands will be formulated. They are now
being paid 2 50 to 2 75 and $3 00 per day.
They will ask for an advance of
10 per cent. The circular states:
Wheeeas, The molders in this vicinity as
well as in all parts of this country, havW
listened attentively to tbe discussion of the
tariff question in all its phases and the benefits
that would be derived from a protective tariff
and if tbe party advocating it were elected to
power tho workinginen would receive untold
benefits. They were appealed to with all
earnestness, and were led to believe that better
waces would be paid.
The election has come and gone. The tariff
party were successful, the trade is good, and in
our line of business is not only booming in this
city bnt the country throughout.
We believe tho time bas come when wo
should come together and ask that tho prom
ises made be faithfully kept.
The J Want an Advance.
A special meeting of L. A. 0G81, Knights
of Labor, boiler makers, was held last even
ing in Labor Hall. The men are thinking
ot formulating a request for an increase of
wages. The manufacturers of boilers meet
in this city this month, and it is proposed to
have the demand in shape for the meeting.
Foivderly Denies It.
General Master Workman Powderiy, of
tueTCnights of Labor, has written an official
denial of the statements published in Pitts
burg about ten days ago to the effect that
the entire Executive Board had been sus
pended on account of there being no money
in the treasury to pay their salaries.
He Will Join the Union.
The trouble about tbe non-union glass
mixer at Cunningham's window house on
the Southside was settled yesterday. The
man will join the union at the next meeting.

THE ARBITRATORS ADJOURNED.
The State Would Not Go On Without Colonel
Donglni' Presence To.Ueinme October
IS Wm. Fllnn's Generous Action.
The State of Pennsylvania refused to pro
ceed with its side of the McKnight arbitra
tion case at tbe close of the plaintiff's side
yesterday afternoon. The reason given by
Attorney General Kirkpatrick was that
Colonel Douglas, of Maryland, the late
supervising engineer of the work at Johns
town, although subpoenaed had failed to ap
pear. The State declared itself unwilling to
go on without his evidence, and the Board
of Arbitration was reluctantly forced to ad
journ until October 15., when an" effort will
be made to close up the case.
It is not generally known that Mr. "Wm.
Flinn is heavily interested in Mr. Mc
Cnight's claim. About six weeks since The
Dispatch published the first intimation of
the dispute that had arisen in regard to the
payment of the claim. Mr. Flinn stated at the
time that on one Saturday night Contractor
McKnight received orders to reduce his
force one-half, but did not receive any
money to pay the discharged-men. He came
to Pittsburg'on the next day and stated the
case to Mr. Flinn, who, with his usual
energy, routed out some bank people and
stood good lor upward ot 17,000, which was
then paid in settlement of the claims of the
discharged laborers. The failure of the State
to remunerate Mr. McKnight in this par
ticular item of money paid out has some
bearing upon the case, although none upon
Mr. McKnight's credit
Sheriff McCandless was a witness at yes

upon the amount of relief work done with

stated that the State timekeepers took no
cognizance of these details. This testimony
was reiterated Dy Assistant mre uniet
Coates, who had, in the course of relief
work, frequently received men and teams
from Mr. McKnight
Major Phillips, "the dynamiter," was an
interesting witness. He related incidents
of the work, such as the stampeding of men
when bodies were found, and stated that he
had reratedmen on account of their arduous
work. He also confirmed previous testi
mony as to the incomplete work of the State
timekeepers, and said they had no record
whatever of the work done at night. Arbi
trators Krcmer and Jones were willing to
accept UcKnight's time books without lur-
ther question, but Attorney McEIee, lor,
claimant, objected, saying the State might

A WEALTHY WOMAN IN DIXMONTJ
Trial ot a Case Yesterday Afternoon Which,
In Exciting Olacb Gossip In Lawrence
ville Society Circles JnstNow. .
Some of the best people in Lawrenceville
are gossiping just now about the case of
Mrs. Charlotte Wallace, a wealthy resident1
of Forty-fourth .street, whose peculiar case
came up before Judge Collier yesterday. It
was an application on the part of Mrs.)
Wallace for a writ of habeas corpus to se-j
enre her release from the Dixmont Insane'
Asylum. Mrs. Wallace was a resident ofl
Lawrenceville and is about 80 years ot age.
She was committed to the institution in Sep-,
She was represented by J. w. JurKer,
Esq., and her children were represented by
Dr. Hutchinson, Superintendent of the
Insane Asylum, testified that Mrs. Wallace
was suffering from senile dementia. She
was much improved and he thought she
would be better off if cared for at home. She
.was harmless but not capable of transacting
Samuel Hamilton testified to having
known Mrs. Wallace for 20 years. She has
considerable propertv and is worth, he es
timated from $20,000" to $25,000. She has
one daughter and three sons.
Dr. Ayers and Dr. Bononiger were called
a'nd corroborated Dr. Hutchinson as to her
Attorney Kerr by close questioning en
deavored to show that Mrs. Wallace would
be better cared for in the asylum than if at
home in charge of inexperienced friends.
He asserted that the children had done all
they could for their mother before putting
her in the asylum, and that that was the
best place for her.
Attorney Kirker desired to showthatMrs.
Wallace would be in better hands if at
home with an experienced nurse to care for
her than if in a crowded asylum.
Judge Collier suggested the best thing
would be to have a commission appointed to
take care of'her and her estate. He re
served his decision in tbe habeas corpus
BEY0KING A BEQUEST.
Wm. Thnw Left a Codicil to Bti
Aflcctine One of Ills Sons.
A codicil to the will of "William Thaw
has been discovered, which will mar the
prospects of one of the legatees. The codicil
revokes the specified bequest to Harry Ken

estate with the other children. The clause
which thus alters the will reads as follows:
With great regret and reluctance, and solely
from a sense of duty, 1 hereby cancel and re
voke any and all provisions of my said will
directing the payment of money or property to
my said son.
The codicil subsequently provides that
H. K. Thaw is to be paid $2,400 annuallv.
free of assignment or charges, and adds that,
if be should convince the trustees by his
steady and upright habits that he is capable
ot taking rare of the original bequest, the

THE PBINTIKG MUDDLE EXPLAINED
The Finance Committee of City Councils
met yesterday afternoon. Controller Mor
row explained to the committee the condi
tion of the printing appropriation, about
which so much has been said, and his ex
planation puts quite a different face on the
matter. It was explained in councils the
other day that there was no money in the
printing appropriations and it was neces
sary to transfer the contingent fund to the
printing appropriation in order to pay
for the list of property assessments now
being printed by the Board ot Assessors.
It was understood that the whole amount
in the contingent fund would be required
for this purpose, but the Controller's report
shows that this was a mistake.
There was a balance of 53,031 57 in the
printing Jund when the Controller sent
notice to the clerks that no more printing
snouiu oe pam ior out of the printing fund.
He intended that balance to be used for pay-
inff for the npintini. nf .).a BNa.M. Iteta
ing for the printing of the assessor's lists.
This, however, was found to be insufficient
for that purpose, and as money was needed
for Council and other printing, the Con
troller had a resolution presented in Coun
cils at last Monday's meeting to transfer all
tbe money remaining in the contingent
fund to the printing fund. The resolution
was passed, and the amount now in the
printing fund is $6,959 84, of which $4,300

leaving a balance of $2,659 84, which, the
Controller thinks will see Councils through
until nearly the end of the fiscal year, if
The Finance Committee also considered
the ordinance, referred to it by councils,
which contemplates the use of part of the
Monongahela wharf for a central police
Mr. W. A. Magee thought the matter
would require careful consideration before
anything was done. There was a section
of the new charter which placed this prop
erty in the Public Works departmeut and
to use it for police purposes would be tak
ing it out of that department As it was
placed there by the Legislature, he thought
it would require an act of the same body to
transfer it. On motion of Mr. Keating a.
sub-committee was appointed to investi
gate, Messrs. Keating, Anderson and Haz
let being the members. '
The notice served by Joseph Fleming on
Councils to the efieut that he wished to with
draw from the bond of Chief of the Depart
ment ot Public Charities Elliott, was re
ferred to a sub-committee, and a special com
mittee was appointed consisting of Messrs.
Keating, Robertson and Carnahan, to ex
amine the bonds of tbe heads of all tbe de
partments, according to section 26 of the
charter ordinance, which provides that such
a committee shall examine annually the
bonds of all such officers, and, if they deem
necessary, order new bonds or bondsmen.
The committee took favorable action on
the petition of Pyle & Brown, who asked to
have the costs on a piece of property of
theirs located on Brownsville avenue,
Thirtv-first ward, removed. They claimed
that the taxes already amounted to as 'much
tor more than the value of the property, but
lif the city would assume the costs of liens,
etc., they would pay the taxes.
I The petition of William Warren for dam
ages by the grading of Buthven street for
the Thirty-third street approach was re
ferred to a sub-committee.
. SCHOOLS. TO LOSE TEACHERS.
Poor Attendance Upon Some of tho Schools
The Committee on Teachers and Salaries
of the Central Board of Education held its
regular meeting last night. The reports
from the various schools were received and
it was made apparent that unless several of
the schools do not come up better in attend
ance by the end of October they would each
lose one teacher. The schools in question
are the North, of the Fourth ward; Spring
field, Twelfth ward; Bedford, Twenty-ninth
ward, and Biverside, Thirty-fourth ward.

EEC07EEED HER TREASURE.
Mrs. Fink's Child Abdacted and MrsterU
onily Returned by the Thief.
On last Monday evening about 5 o'clock
.a woman known about Lawrenceville as
"Big Mary," called at the home of Mrs.
Amelia Fink, corner of Harrison and Davi
son streets. The woman was known to Mrs.
Pink, and she was asked to partake of a cup
of coffee. While Mrs. Fink went to the
store "Big Mary" made off with Mark Pink,
3 years old.
Mrs. Pink was in despair and did not
know where to turn to recover her treasure.
Yesterday morning, however, Mrs. Fink
notified Agent Dean of the case. When she
returned home her son had been brought
back. The lady was overjoyed on regain
ing the little fellow. A Dispatch reporter
called on her last night. She stated that
she could not fathom the woman's motive
for spiriting the child away. Nestling the
boy in her bosom, she said with great
pathos: "I would not part with him for the
whole of Pittsburg."

Tbe Meeting of 'the National Board of Navi
gation Ended by a Banquet Aflont A
Very Lively Morning Session Tolls De
nounced. The National Board of Steam Navigation,
which has been meeting in this city, con
cluded its session yesterday by an excursion
up the Monongahela on the Mayflower. A
comprehensive banquet was served on
board, and a number of speeches were made,
which principally dealt with the freeing of
the Monongahela river from the toll system.
Captain John A. Dravo delivered a caustio
address upon the discrimination against the
valley coal operators by the Monougahela
Slackwater Company at the morning ses
sion. He said: "The interests of ten States
are in consideration. It is wrong- that a
private corporation is allowed to control a
national body of water and to charge
fees for the transportation of coal
through a system of locks and dams. Locks
should be owned and controlled by the
Oovernment of tbe United States. It the
Monongahela was free then the citizens of
ten States could obtain their coal a great
deal cheaper. It costs more money at pres
ent to get a tow of coal down irom the
upper pools to Pittsburg, a distance of 60
miles, than it does to ship it from this port
to Cincinnati, a distance of 450 miles. The
last session of Congress did make an appro
priation for tbe purchase of dam and lock
No. 7. This will not benefit the coal men,
for the lock and dam are located in West
Captain Dravo then submitted the follow
ing resolution which was adopted:
Whebeas, The right of free navigation is
fully recognized, and as fully secured to the
people of West Virginia by the Improvement
of tbe Great Kanawha river at National ex
pense, and its use protected from taxation by
special legislation; and
Whereas. A nortion of the Monongahela
river, lying within tbe boundary lines of thd
State of Pennsylvania, is controlled by a private
corporation, charging and collecting tolls on
merchandise en route for the citizens of other
States, in violation of national law, which for
bids tbe imposition of duty on Inter-State com
Whereas. Our appeal to Congress for relief
is farther justified by tbe consideration, that
national authority at national expense has im
proved and made free that part of the Monon
gahela lying immediately beyond the State line
of Pennsylvania and within the lines of West
Virginia, conspicuously discriminating in favor
of the citizens of one State to the disadvantage
of those of another.
Resolved, That the Committee on Legisla
ture be instructed to make such representa
tions to Congress as they may deem proper to
the end that tbe people of the United States
may be secured in the free use of the Monon
Captain Vosburgh then announced that
he would like to have the two bills he hod
drafted presented before the next Congress.
The first bill provided for the abolition of
an annual meeting of the national meeting
of the State Board of Supervisors. The
second referred to the appointment cf super

The Tonag Wonm Who Tried k Mar Ke
cover No Cause Assigned
Dr. W-F. Edmundsonwasseea3aatnlgW
with reference to 'the case of Leonora Jel
aven who took a heavy dose of alleged pare
arsenic yesterday. Tbe doctor' has been in
attendance on Miss Dclaven since the first
symptoms oi pain appeared, and he says
that tho chances of recovery are all in her
favor. He doubts very much that the
arsenic sold by the drnggist was pure, as
Miss Delaven herself told him she bought
an ounce, and only paid 5 cents for it.
"Five cents," tbe doctor continued,
"seems to me to be, suspiciously cheap for
pure arsenic. I should not wonder if the,
poison were adulterated. I examined what
was left over, however, and there was about
half an ounce, and it appeared to be quite
pure. I did all I could for the girl, and
administered several powerful antidotes.
When I lost saw; her she. was complaining
of a burning io her throat and in the pit of
her stomach. Her tongue was quite moist.
This looks as though, tbe pains were caused
by some mustard and salts X administered,
and not by the poison. There are no signs
of fever, either, and that is a very good sym
tom. Miss Delaven is of a naturally robust
constitution. I can give no cause for her
strange act, as in my character of physician
I could not ask her for any. Tknow she is
a rather headstrong and impetuous young
lady, and apt to do things which the would
be sorry for afterwards. I think she "will
pull through all right."
