Tho following official triDute to the estima

have been issued:

General Orders So. 21.
I. Tlie recent sudden death of Past Senior Vice
Department Commander W. It. Jones, of Post No.
181, and the death, at an earlier date, of Past
Junior Vice Department Commander George K.
Bart, of Post So. 27. takes from our ranks two
comrades who held high official place in the De
partment bnt last year.
They were comrades in the highest sense of the
term, and were the embodiments of those grand
qualities that so endear comrades to each other.
Comrade Hart, 6tricken bv disease, patiently
awaited the summons that must sooner or later
come to alL hu pain and snfferlnit eased by the
knowledge that he had made for himself a warm
place In the hearts or his comrades.
Comrade Jones Tell at his post of duty, his death
being the result of a sad accident occurring in the
great Industrial establishment in which be oc
cupied not only the most important, bit most
honored place. In Ills death there was closed a lire
of conspicuous citizenship worthy or emulation.
In tbe terrible calamity that befell the people of
Johnstown, i'a.. he was anion? tbe first to reach
that stricken community, lie went with open
heart and open purse, with no thoocht of sellout
Intent only on relieving the sufferings of the peo
ple and his comrades of that place
Let our thoughts of these comrades, whose lead
we followed but a rear ago, whose places in our
ranks are now Tacant, be those of reverence and
of love, and emulating their example strive for
that bonorand purity or citizenship and sincerity
of comradeship that characterized their live.
By command of Department Commander,
Assistant Adjutant General.
From Pott 155.
At its last meeting Post 155 adopted the fol
Whereas. Death Is continuing to Invade the
ranks of the G. A It., aud almost dally someone
Is called upon to lav aside the implements of this
world's warfare and answer to the calling of his

heard tbe call and passed beyond, was no less a
person than Pan bcnior Vice Department Com

A Pleasant Camp Fire.
' Abe Patterson Post No. 88, ot Allegheny,
held a most delightful camp&re on tbe evening
of Grand Army Day. Holliday Post, of 'Wheel
ing, W. Va., and Post 62, of Altoona, were the
Invited guests of Post 88, aud it was in the
honor of their Tisit that the cimpfire was
held. The Ladies' Auxiliary of Post 88 supplied
the visitors with a bountiful repast, to which
every comrade was made(w elcome. and from 11
o'clock until 2 the veterans, their wives,
daughters and friends had free access to tbe
hall and banquet.
The kindness of the ladies in providing din
ner and supper lor the veterans and their
friends was duly appreciated by alL At the
campfire Commander V. H. Lockharr, pre
sided. Comrade W. 8. Meek, of AVhcehng,
made a rousing speech, and wound it up by
telliiig his hearers how he shaved tho Seven-
if. teenth army corps. Comrades W. A. Stone, J.
" P. Stewart, W. H. Graham and others, of Post
68. and Comrades A. P. Burchfleld and Hamil
ton, of Post 1C2, delivered Interesting ad
dresses. Miss Mamie Sawyer with her violin, Miss
Rosalind Forster, tbe "Daughter of Post 88,"
with her recitations, and Comrades Fred
Dlehl, John L. Brown and J. L. Shook with
their songs kept up the interest and fun until
the time for partinc came. After singing
Marching Through Georgia," by the entire
audience the camp&re was put out aud the
comrades and their friends went home well
pleased with Grand Army Day.
Grand Army Day.
All the news of Grand Army Day was well
covered in the daily press, so it is needless to
say much here about it. Tbe weather was
pleasant, the parade was a success, the camp
fires were very enjoyable, and all in all it was a.
most pleasurable occasion.
But Pittsburg, according to all the indica
cations, will not see another Grand Army Day
for some years. The reason of this is that the
business men of the city lack a proper appre
ciation and do not contribute to the fund suffi
ciently. Some who are benefited highly by the
day are so short-sichted that they refuse to
rive anything. The proper way to do is to
celebrate Grand Army Day where it will be ap
preciated as it should be.
Tho Southwestern G. A It. Association will
be formed, and Grand Army Day held each
jcar In some smaller town than Pittsburg.
Uhiswillbeabad thing for Pittsburg; but
for tbe Grand Army of the Republic it is the
best thing that can be done.

General E.S. Osborne was the only man
who spoke at the campfire at Old City Hall
who did not tell the boys that they were "pass
ing away, one by one."
"Constant Reader" asks: "Was there a
bill passed granting the lOMays men $100
bounty and a cent a day for every day they
were out?" There was not.

The third annual reunion of the McKean

at Smotbport last Thursday, was an enjoyable
occasion. Many prominent speakers were
The seventh annual reunion of the Seventy
sixth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers
(Keystone Zouaves), was held at Beaver Falls
on last Thursday. Fifty survivors from differ
ent parts of tbe State were present. The next
reunion will be he!d in Pittsburg.
Now that Grand Army Day is passed, with
the attendant work and worry, let all the en
ergies be put forth toward tbe work of recruit
in. Commander Stewart thinks that with
'proper work the Department of Pennsylvania
should have 50.000 members by January 1, 1S30.

throughout tbe Department that Major A. P.
Burchfleld, of Pittsburg, will be the next De
partment Commander. Comrade Burchfleld
was Senior Vice Department Commander a few
years ago.
As no affidavits as to the number of men
turned out by any post on Grand Army Day
have yet been turned into the Committee of
Award, the matter of which postgets tbe hand
some flag given by tbe late Captain W. R. Jones
has not been decided. It appears that cither
Post 162 or 208 is entitled to it.
Post 162, which was the banner post of Alle
gheny conuty at the end of the quarter ending
July 1 in regard to the largest percentage of
increase in membership, at tho close of the
quarter ending October 1 is shown to have a
larger increase than ever before. So the ban
ner contlnnes to wave in the same place.
The Fourth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volun
teers, will hold a reunion in this city on Sep

are: Captain Mitchell, President: Captain
Lardcrbauch,Vice President: C. A. McFarland
Secretary; G. R. Beecher, Corresponding Secre
tary; G. Boyle, Chaplain; R. J. BoylcTreasurer.
Post 235 had a pleasant little campfire of its
own on last Tuesday evening. The music and
speeches were much enjoyed. The boys did
not go hungry, for the ladies of Circle No. 7,
Ladles of tbe G. A. R., prepared a tine lunch,
to which free access was had by the veterans
all day, and they are thankful to Mesdames
Corbley, McCabe, Behera, Jones and Wake
field. Comrade Eiiil Poerstel, member of
Council ot Administration of Post 3, is home
from his three months' trip through Europe,
where he visited all tbe important cities. His
health is much improved. He will likely give
the comrades of Post 3 a history of his trip at
an early day, which will no doubt be very in
teresting. His comrades are glad to see him
back, and will give him a hearty welcome.
Captain Charles W. Chapman Circle,
Ladies of the G. A. R., will be organized and
the officers installed by the Department Presi
dent, Mrs. Carrie V. Shernff, on Tuesday
evening, October 8, at the hall on Federal
street, Allegheny, opposite the Ft. Wayne
depot. Ihe new circle will start with a mem
bership of 60, which will be rapidly added to.
Captain Chapman, after whom the circle will
be called, commanded Company K, Sixty
third Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers. He,
with Lieutenant James S. Ljsle, was killed
while on a scouting expedition near Polick
Church, Va., on tbe morning of March 6, 1S62.
Sons of Veterans.
The general orders of Commander John
Vogt were unintentionally omitted from this
column last Sunday to the regret of the editor.
The turnout of the Sons ot Veterans on
Grand Army Day was not very satisfactory.
There should haver been 500 in line; there
seemed to be not many more than 100. With
tbe exception of Camp! 33, no camp made a
good showing. Active work is required in the
organization. If the right kind of work be
done the Sons of Veterans can be made the
pride of Pittsburg. Will it be done T
The Central Board meets next Tuesday
The teachers' autumn outing to Bell's Gap
is on the tapis for next Saturday.
THE Central Board rooms were unusually
unfrequented yesterday. The Booth-Modjeska
matinee and tbe Exposition were the taking
directions for the teachers.
The Executive Committee of the Teachers'
Guild met yesterday at the Grant School.
Prof. S. A. Andrews was elected Chairman, J.
P. Cameron, Secretary, and Miss M. J. Gra
ham, Treasurer. The regular meeting of the
Guild will occur on the first Saturday in No
vember. There will be a general session of the
Teachers' Institute next Saturday at the Ral
ston School at 930 A. M. Miss L. M. Gardner,
of the Bloomfield School, will give a class drill
in reading for the benefit of tho teachers of
Step L Prof. B. A. Andrews, of the Howard
School, will open j. discussion on "The Duties
of School Principals." Prof. H. W. Fisher, of
tbe Washington schools, will handle the sub
ject, "How Can Our Schools be Made More
Miss Nannie Gillespie, the popular as
sistant principal of the Hiland School, has re
signed. Miss S. A. Plattf of tho same school,
has been elected to the position occupied by
Miss Gillespie, and Miss Minnie Kubn, of tbe
Grant School, takes Miss Piatt's room. Miss
Gillespie's retirement from the profession is
due to the late death of her father and the
present illness of her mother. Few teachers
can leave behind them such a brilliant record
of success aud popularity as falls to the lot of
this lady.
The evening schools will open November 4
for a term of 40 nights. The decision of the
Evening School Committee to reduce the num
ber of pupils to each teacher will cause tbe
night school ma'am" much joy, and additional
number of teachers will be employed. Hereto
fore tbe rule was that one teachercoula be em
ployed for the first 16 pupils, another for an
additional 25 pupils and one teacher for every
SU pupils more. The new rule allows a teacher
for 16 pupils, and others for every additional 20
pupils. It bas been the custom every year,
with the exception of the Fresideutal campaigu
era, to bold an evening school session of 60
nights, but tbe last month bas had always an
enormous decrease in attendance. The 40-night
session ol last year seemed very popular, and
will hereafter be continued.

Over Two Thousand Permits Taken
Out This Year, Involving
Bird Slaughter in the South to Afford
Ornaments for Women's Eats.
Soms may think it rather cbestnutty to
keep repeating what everybody knows, that
Pittsburg is growing, but the fact is deemed
of sufficient importance to be kept before
the people, for proof that Pittsburg is
growing it is only necessary to look over
the books of the Building Inspector, from
these it was ascertained yesterday th.t the
number of building permits issued from
February 1 the beginning of the munici
pal year to October 1 is 1884. Add 1C0 for
January and. GS for last week, and the grand
total is 2,052. The cost of these buildings Is,
in round numbers. $5,000,000.
This is considerably more than half the
number of houses which it was estimated last
spring would be erected during the year. As
the busiest part of thebeason is to come the
golden days of autumn which are peculiarly,
favorable to outdoor work it is almost certain
that the full number of 4,000 will be finished
or under roof by the time Father Time is ready
to strike the knell of the year. This is rapid
growth. It is substantial Improvement. It
means an accession of 20,000 people to tbe
permanent population of the city. This is
great, but as capitalists are warming up over
real estate, and are beginning to realize the
importance of building more bouses, it is safe
to predict a better record for next year.
There is one Southern industry which is not
at all pleasant to contemplate. It is the indis
criminate slaughter of birds for their plumage
But it is the decree of fashion the crudest
and most senseless of tyrants, a tyrant that
drives its votaries to some curiously inconsist
ent acts. They kneel with devout fervor at the
throne of divine mercy, solicit with charming
eloquence funds to educate, civilize, and Chris
tianize the benighted heathen ot foreign lands,
carry flowers and gushing sympathy to the
cells of the most infamous and atrocious crim
inal in the jails, and offer money inducements
for the cold-blooded slaughter of the few plu
mage birds that remain on this continent.
Nearly 3,000 birds were shipped from Mobile to
New York one day lastweeK. They will be
used to adorn the hats and bonnets of North
ern ladies. One man in Alabama has shipped
10,00 birds to Northern cities since June L
This reveals a fruitful field for missionary
The method of advertising houses to let in
this city has been completely revolutionized
within the last few years. The old plan was
for the landlord to post a notice on the door of
an empty house, Informing the public that a
tenant was wanted. He then went about his
business, and any inquirer who happened along
had to hunt him up. This was slow and un
satisfactory to both parties, and tho result of it
was to leave a great many houses without occu
pants. Then the agency business was started,
and bills containing lists of empty houses
printed for distribution to all wno chose to go
ana get them. This plan was also unsatis
factory, for these bills fell into the hands of
very few persons. There was no general dis
tribution of them, but if a renter wanted one
ho had to co to the office of the agent for it.
Tbey were of no benefit to the general public
This method is still pursued to some extent.
The latest departure from tbe old method of
securing tenants, and one that has yielded
satisfactory results, was taken some time ago
by Samuel W. Black fc Co. Instead of issuing
lists from their office, they leased a column in
The Dispatch wherein to make regular an
nouncements of vacant houses. They found
the venture profitable to them from the start,
and are so well pleased with the results that
they will keep it up as a leading feature of
their business. Both landlords and tenants are
pleased with it, and find it a great help to them
in leaslnc or renting. Hand-bills necessarily
have a limited Influence, even when scattered
broadcast, for few people take time to look at
them, but the paper is perused by thousands at
home, in the store, office and workshop, rfrving
it a value as a medium of business communica
tion which nothing else can Justly lay claim t o
The enterprise of Messrs. Black & Co. is a
notable instance of tbe drift ot business in this
city toward new ideas and methods,
The collapse or threatened collapse of one of
the largest of the Western farm mortgage
companies elicited the following remarks lrom
one who is thoroughly familiar with these inse
cure security mongers and their risky business
methods: "Whether the Farmers' Loan and
Trust Company, whose finances now seem to be
shaky, places mortgages on arid sand wastes in
Kansas and Nebraska I do not know, but that
such business is being earned on every day by
some company or other there is no doubt. Speech
on this question should be plain, for too much
money is going out West on rotten mortgages.
Lured by the promise of hieh interest many
companies mortgage land in Western Kansas
and Nebraska which is perfectly waste and un
fit for farm purposes, and foreclosure is an ab
solute certainty.
"The truth of thematteris that criminal care
lessness is too common in this business. A 6
or 7 per cent mortgage well placed on a West
ern farm or town property by a conservative
company is a perfectly reliable investment
But for any one company that conducts busi
ness in this fashion there are half a dozen that
are full of financial rottenness."

The following in reference to a subject that
has been treated at length in The Dispatch,
Is self-explanatory i
PrrTSBTTEO, October 5.
Dear Bras At the last meeting of real es
tate agents and owners, called for the purpose
of effecting a change of moving day to May 1,
I was instructed to have an agreement pre
pared for signature of those who were willing
to join in tbe movement, of which agreement I
inclose a copy, which is almost self-explanatory.
It is desired to obtain the co-operation of all
real estate owners and agents, and I ask your
aid in bringing the matter before the public.
Messrs. A. Leggato & Son, No. 31 Federal
street, Allegheny, and Messrs. Black 4 Balrd,
95 Fourth avenue, Pittsbure, have a supply ot
these agreements, and all landlords and agents
who rent houses are requested to call for them,
and obtain as many signatures thereto as possi
ble. The success of the movement depends
upon the number signing the agreement, and
it now rests with the landlords and agents
whether this change, which is admittedly a
desirable one, is to be consummated.
Yours truly,
Leslie Gt-oitiiigeb,
Secretary Pro Tempore Real Estate Agents'
The following is the agreement referred to
We, tbe undersigned real estate agents and
owners of real estate situate in the county of
Allegheny, Pa., recognizing and appreciating
the difficulties and inconveniences suffered by
our tenants by reason of the inclemency of the
weather about April 1, and desiring to accom
plish a change of the moving season to Mayl
each year, hereby agree that upon and after
the date thereof, we, and each of us, will make
any and every article of agreement in relation
to tbe letting of bouses and lands under our
control In such manner as to cause the term of
each annual lease to expire upon May 1 instead
of April 1. as heretofore, it being understood
that this agreement does not extend to leases
expiring in 1890:
Provided, however, that this agreement shall
be binding upon us only upon condition that it
is ratified by a majority ol the signers hereof
attending a publio meeting ot reat estate
agents and owners of real estate situate In the
county of Allegheny, Pennsylvania, to be called
by A. Leggate, President pro tempore of the
Beal Estate Agents' Organization, notice of the
time and place of said meeting to be given by
publication In at least three of the daily papers
of the city of Pittsburg for a period of ten days
prior thereto.
Signatures of real estate owners a,nd agents
are requested.
The statements of tbe local banks, In response
to the call of the Controller of the Currency,
tkow thftttbMo Initiations are Terrttrosgla
resources, the available capital being large
enough to assure easy money throughout the
fall and winter. An encouraging feature of
the reports is the large increase in deposits.
This indicates two things: That business is
active and that the tollers are amassing wealth,
much of which is being invested in lands and
houses. Under such conditions it is notre
jnarkablo that Pittsbure is prosperous to a
degree never excelled, seldom equaled, in her
Speaking of the urgent demand for small
houses, the Heal Estate Record and Builder
Guide of this city remarks: 'The real estate
agents have more Inquiries for small houses
than they can supply. Thedemand atthis time
is phenomenal Year after year we have had
the same experience. The number of small
houses is inadequate to the needs of our com
munity. We believe that the demand for
houses with from four to six rooms is so urgent
that tenants tor a thousand more than we are
building could easily be found before April 1.
Perseverance conquers fate. That a man is
down is lio reason that he should stay down. If
he be honest and capable the chances for get.
ting on his feet again are all in his
favor. Tbe story of the failure of Jay
Cooke is a familiar one to Pittsburg people.
He went down under a mountain of debt, but
with his character untarnished. He went to
work to redeem his fortune and succeeded.
Mr. Cooke is once more a prominent figure in
Philadelphia, and still wears the venerable
white hat that made him a familiar figure
there 20 years ago. It is currently believed
that he made 11,000,000 out of the Horn Silver
Mine since his failure in 1873, and that he bas
kept the money and added to it. His example
is full of encouragement to others with whom
fickle fortune has dealt unkindly.
An Adverse Decision by Justice Bradley
The Stock Tumbles.
There was nothing In the stock market yes
terday demanding special mention except a
rather bad break in Westlnghouse Electric, as
a result of the adverse decision from Washing
ton. When it became known that Edison had
won, the stock dropped like a plummet from 50
to 48. It was fortunate that the session was
about over when the news was promulgated, as
otherwise the loss would have been greater.
There is a great deal of the stock intbisclty,
and considerable in the East, a good deal of
which it is feared will be thrown on the
market before the flurry is over. This may
bring tbe price down to 45, or even 43.
Holders ot large blocks may bave nerve
enough to withstand the temptation to realize
on the slump to avoid possiDly greater
loss, but it is thought tne small fry will rush to
cover and precipitate a further decline. But
this anticipation may be groundless. Common
sense should influence the owner of a few
shares as much as the bolder of many. It is a
matter of money with both. Bnt in any event
it is necessary for all holders of the stock to
move slowly and with deliberation, and not
give way to the first impulse to unload, which
would only make bad worse. Tbe Westing
house interest is too important and valuable to
be annihilated by any number of decisions, let
alone one. The stock will rally, and quickly,
too, if the holders of it only maintain their
souls in patience.
A gentleman who has intimate knowledge of
the affairs of tbe Westinghouse Company said
yesterday evening: "Tho decision may have
surprised some, but I expected it. It was too
big a thing to be banded over to tne 'control of
one corporation. A decision In favor of West
inghouse would have made him the most power
ful man in America. It would have put tbe
stock up to 300 or 400. But he didn't lose every
thing by a great deal. He bas many valuable
electrical appliances of his own that are m use,
and more coming on. The plant-Is still very
valuable. Some think the decision makes
Westinghouse the under dog In the fight with
Edison for the control of the business. This is
incorrect. It places them on a perfect equality
before tbe public. If the right to dictate terms
of consolidation was the object of the litiga
tion, the denial of that right to one does not
confer it upon the other, and they can now pool
their Interests upon a basis of equality, and 1
think this will be tbe result
"As to the value of the stock, I do not think
the decision bas unpaired it in the least It de
clined upon receipt of the news, but if those
who hold it are sensible they will lay it away
until the scare is over. To unload it now would
necessarily result in a further decline. Keep It
off the market and a reaction will inevitably
bank stocks.

Oil Flnuuderinir Alone In Ihe Nineties, With
Very Little Doing:.
The oil market yesterday was a repetition ot
those of the previous days of tbe week dull
and featureless. The opening and lowest price
was 9Sc, the highest 994c, and the lowest
99.,o. Pittsburg and Oil City were light buyers.
New York did nothing.
Trading was as narrow as the range of prices.
The week's clearings were 2,667.000 barrels
better than the previous week, but still only a
moderate day's business in flush times.
Said a broker: "I was in hopes the return
to cash trading would help business, but I see
no difference. It may pick up yet. If it does
not we will bave to look out for some other
way of making a living."

Sugar the Especial Point of Attack on tho
Stock Market Tho Bank Statement
Caused Some Uneasiness.
NswYobk, October 5. The stock market
to-day was rather heavy, which was for the
most part the result of the renewal of the
pressure upon the trust stocks, though the
activity and fluctuations in those shares were
much better than yesterday, The feeling in
the stocks of the regular list was more bullish
and first prices wore generally slight fractions
higher than last night's closing figures. There
was no pressure to sell, and the tendency in tbe
regular listwas upward in the Brst few minutes.'
trading, wbenrtho drive at the trusts checked
tbe buying again, and the market settled away
Sugar was the special point of attack, and it
declined from 86j at tbe opening to 83. Cot
ton Oil also dropped from 43Ji to 42. The trad
ing was even more than usual confined to a few
shares, and among the regular stocks Burling
ton, Atchison, Reading and St. Paul were the
only' ones showing any animation whatever.
The strength in Burlington was the feature of
the market, but it moved over a narrow range
and lost all of tbe early Improvement toward
theelose. Tennessee coal was the one weak
spot in the list, but after a drop of 1 per cent it
more than recovered the decline.
After tbe drive was over, which was toward
11 o'clock, prices rallied all over tbe room, and
most of tbe stocks of the regular list were
brought up to something better than the open
ing prices. Tbe trusts followed, but failed to
reach their first figures. On the issue of
tbe bank statement, which showed that for the
first time in over five years there was a deficit
In tbe reserve, there was a renewal of the weak
ness, and the market closed quiet but weak at
irregular changes of small fractions. Sugars,
however, was down 2 and Cotton Oil 1 percent.
Railroad bonds were extremely dull to-dav.

while tbe tone of the dealings was rather heavy

000, against $1,893,000 last week.
The exports of specie from tbe port of New
York last week amounted to $2,149,401, of which
$1,655,181 was in gold and $461,220 in silver; of
the total exports $1,532,721 gold and $461,220
silver went to Europe and $155,460 gold to South
America. Tbe imports of specie last week to
the port of New York amounted to $70,014, of
which $64,188 was in gold and $5,826 In silver.
Petroleum optned steady at 98c and ad
vanced slightly, closing firm at 9sc Stock
Total sales. 125.000 barrels.
John M. Oakley's New York correspondent
wired last night: The sensational events of the
week have been the semi-panicky breaks in
Sugar Trust and Cotton OiL Sugar had de
clined already to such an extent that its friends
hoped that further downward progress would
be averted, but the bears bad a taste of blood
and the banks were coary of loaning on certifi
cates, and holders themselves anpeared to lack
confidence in the ability of the trnst to con
tinue current dividends of 10 per cent, and here
there was slaughtering of the values of theso
certificate', breaking yesterday 7K per cent to
83 For several davs Cotton Oil manifested
symptoms of decided weakness, but it did not
collapse until yesterday, when it fell to 40&
being nine points break for the week.
Tbe management of this trnst and the char
acter of its products have inspired confidence
In its earning capacity. Fortihed as this opin
ion bas been by tbe preliminary statement of
earning put out a few months ago, showing at
least 6 per cent, earned on the stock, it is not
easy to explain why the stock broke so badly,
but various theories are current, some of which
relate to tbe low price of lard, others to tight
money and speculative short sales; others,
again, to greater compjtitlon, etc, but it must
be admitted that trusts just now are under tho
ban of public opinion, and it is nbt improbable
that some of them will be driven to the shelter
of regularly organized corporations.
