GEEATEE DEPTH OF WATEE OS THE BAE
Colonel James P. Andrews, the eminent
engineer of Allegheny City, was seen yes
terday by a Dispatch representative -who
had an unreasonable appetite for an item
nngratified by several hours of busy hust
iing. The genial old engineer came to the
rescue with an important piece of informa
tion about the I2ads jetties, with which he
was so long and so successfully connected.
Colonel Andrews said: "A corp of army
officers appointed by Secretary Proctor has
just concluded the official inspection of the
Eads system of jetties pursuant to the act of
Congress which allowed Captain Eads to
construct his jetties in the South Pass of the
Mississippi river. The enabling act placed
all the risks upon Captain Eads, and ar
ranged the basis of payment so that even
when the deep water had been secured, the
Government was to retain
ONE MILLION DOLLABS
as a security for the perpetuation of a navi
cable stage of water. There was to be an
inspection of the system within ten years
from the date of completion, and a partial
pavmentof the sum, the final inspection
ami payment to take place in 20 years after
"The jetties were completed and formally
opened on October 6, 1879, in the midst of a
great popular demonstration. The ten
vears' payment was therefore due on the 6th
of the current month. The formal inspec
tion, however, was not completed until day
before yesterday, and the official report is
probably by this time in the hands of the
Secretary of the Navy. He will draw his
warrant "for the sum payable under the pro
visions of the act, and it will he paid to a
representative of the Eads estate, who is
sow in Washington.
"This latest Government survey must
the question which is even now raised by
carping critics and doubting Thomases as to
the permanency of the jetties. I have been
apprised by telegraph that the Government
surveyors found, alter elaborate foundings
of the bar at the mouth of SonthPass that
the average depth of watr was greater than
at the completion of the work. In several
places an increased depth of three to four
leet was found, but in the average the depth
has increased. I regret that Captain Eads
did not live long enough to enjoy this fresh
proof of his foresight and judgment. But
his widow will receive a practical evidence
of the success of the jetties."
Colonel Andrews is very busy upon sev
eral mechanical ideas which are the resnlt
of sights seen in Europe during his recent
trip. He has completely recovered from the
effects of the severe attack of pleuro-pneu-xnonia
which he contracted on his trip from
Denver to St. Louis.

A Two-Story Stable Consumed Cable Cars
About 8 o'clock last evening fire was dis
covered in the two-story stable of H. Ober
nauer on Oar alley, near Vine street This
stable has been bnrned twice formerly with
in two years. It was the property of H.
Forest, and had been rented by Obernauer,
the wholesale liqnor dealer, only since Oc
The origin of the fire is unknown, al
though it is probable that some man dropped
a cigar or spark from a pipe. Two or three
men kept their horses in the lower part, and
had put them away a short time belore the
fire broke out Officer Bosenblatt saw the
flames and sounded an alarm. When the
engines arrived the entire upper part was
ablaze. Three wagons and six horses kept
on the lower floor were saved from the
flame's. On the second floor, which opens
upon a yard leading to Colwell street, there
were four horses, five sets of harness, a buggy
and a load of hay, all belonging to Ober
nauer, which were burned. The property
was insured for little over half the value,
hut there was no insurance on the building.
The fire was put out before the framework
As patrol wagon No. 2, from the Eleventh
ward station, was driving to the fire Officer
S. Hanley tried to jump on the rear end at
the corner of Fil'tL avenue aud Pride
street His grip slipped and he fell back
ward. His foot caught between the brass
rail and the step, and he was dragged, on
his back, along the stone pavement as far
as the corner of Marion street There he
was seen by one of the men on the wagon
and was released. He could barely stand.
His shoes were burned, his clothing torn
and he was severely bruised on his back and
limbs. He was able, alter awhile, to walk
to his home on Second avenue.
The hose lines across Pi. th avenue stopped
the cable cars ior over an hour, and when
the theaters and Exposition were out the
streets down town were crowded with people
waiting lor cars, which had not yet got back
to regular schedule. Captain Silvis and sev

Prank Stephenson, Treasurer or the
Bridgewater Gas Company, denied yester
day that the company would advance the

stated that no circulars had been issued to

during their short visit here met yesterday
and concluded their arrangements.
The visitors will arrive on Wednesday
evening from Cincinnati. On Thursday
the trip up the river, particulars of which
have been already published, will take
place. A return will be made by 5 or 6
o'clock in order to afford time for an in
spection of the exhibits of minor phases of
local industry which it is proposed to hold in
Mechanical Hall on the same evening. D.
C. Ripley is Chairman of the committee
having this matter in hand, and to him all ap
plications for soace should be at once made.
The directors of the Exposition have con
sented to facilitate the presentation of these
industries to the visitors by providing the
necessary motive power, etc The shoe
manufacturing, nail and broom making ma
chines now in operation will be utilized, and
it is expected that the citizens will provide
an extensive entertainment in this direction
for the edification of the delegates.
On Friday the programme, as already
published, will be carried out, and in the
evening the visitors will sleep in their cars,
so as to be ready for an early start next

will be no banqueting indnlged in, but

Although Many Men Were Around Ibe
Boiler Xone Were Hurt.
A boiler exploded last night at the Pitts
burg Foundry Company, Bennet Nolives
were lost, but John Spael, the engineer,
sustained a deep scalp wound at the right
side of his head. His injuries are not con
sidered fatal, although he is in a dangerous
The explosion occurred about 6 o'clock,
just when the men were tapping a heat of
iron from the cupola, and it was a most
miraculous circumstance that no lives were
lost, because the boiler is situated just at
the rear of the cupola. When the report
was heard the men around the furnace left
the molten irou to pour into the ladle, and
ran from the flying debris.
The east side of the building was torn
out, the patterns were scattered around and
broken into fragments, and the engine was
slightly damaged. The loss is estimated at
It is supposed that the cause of the explo
sion was a defective sheet in the boiler; it
was, however, tested last October at 150
pounds, and it only carried 100 pounds at
the time it blew up. Two years ago yester
day a boiler exploded in the same place and
about the same hour.

on foot, on horseback and in buggies, dog

number of perspiring Muldoons who would

were forced to hoof it as the liverv capacity
of Chartiers was exhausted. Some of the
visitors owned land in Stowe and Bobinson

W. D. I!foore Preienta Startling Affidavits
In Criminal Court Ex-Mayor Llddell
Involved Attorney Porter's ExplIcItDe
nlal. W. D. Moore created a sensation in
Criminal Court yesterday by presenting an
affidavit made by Joanna May Clark in re
lation to the case of assanlt and battery in
which Hannah Clark was the prosecutrix
and ex-Mayor Robert Liddell the defendant
Mrs. Clark deposed that while waiting to be
called before the grand jury she heard Mr.
Liddell say to one Townsley, "Swear she was
drnnk and stick to it." She also avers that
Townsley so swore, and that the bill was
ignored by reason thereof. Mr. Moore also
presented an affidavit made by Hannah
Clark substantiating her mother's testi
mony. Mr. Moore then made a graphic statement
of the fracas in which Mrs. Clark was ejected
by ex-Mayor Liddell from thelatter's office,
and claimed that the grand jury had as
sumed the functions of. a traverse jury in
trying the case, and charged that things
Judge White asked some questions, said
he was astounded that Mr. Liddell should
have been permitted to remain in the grand
jury room, and that he wonld have the case
sent back and reconsidered.
Mr. Haymaker, Assistant District At
torney, said he had not seen anybody but
Attorney L. K. Porter in the room. Mr.
Portfrasked to have the case disposed of as
quickly as possible.
The Court rose to his feet and said with
some warmth that Mr. Porter had no busi
ness there, and any member of the bar who
did that should be disbarred. He again
expressed his amazement at Mr. Liddell 's
presence in the grand jury room, and said
that he would refer the case to the next
Last evening ex-Mayor Liddell, accom
panied by his attorney, Mr. L. K. Porter,
visited The Dispatch office for the pur
pose of making a statement abont the events
of the day in the Criminal Court
Mr. Townsley is a night watchman in my
employ. I si mnly want to say that I was not in
grand jury room as charged, and didn't com
municate with either tbe grand jnry or the
Assistant District Attorney, Haymaker. I was
simply there to escort our engineer and foremen
who were to testify before grand jury. I waited
in the waiting room until I found the case
couldn't bo called, whenlleftfor home. They
had to wait I deny every charge made by them
completely. I am very much astonished at a
charge of jury-hxing, and can only ascribe it to
personal reasons. Townsley was jot called by
the grand jury at all, and it could not have
been his testimony upon which the case was
ignored. I propose to make an information
against Hannah Clark and her mother for
perjury and against W.D. Moore for subornation
of perfury, and until the case is tried I ask a
suspension ot opinion. I propose to probe the
thing to tbe bottom, as I am tired of being
Mr. Porter was indignant at what he
termed the unwarranted assumptions made
in the case, and last evening secured the fol
lowing letter from Assistant District At

PrrrSBUBO, October 17, 1889.
In relation to the statement made by Judge
White in the Criminal Court this morning in
the case of the Commonwealth versus Robert
Liddell, ignored by the grand jury, in justice to
L. K. Porter, Esq., I desire to say that two or
three days before the case was heard by the
grand- jury Mr. Porter called on me in the
waiting room.which is separate from that occu
pied by the grand jury, and requested simply
that an engineer who had charge of a large
engine be heard as soon as possible in the Lid
dell case, as it was almost impossible for.him
to be away from bis engine this witness was
subpoenaed by the Commonwealth and made a
similar request; this was on Friday and tbe
case was heard on the following Monday or
Tuesday. Mr. Porter made not the slightest
reference to the facts or merits of the case, nor
did he say anything about the prosecntion of
his client I know that his sole purpose was to
relieve the engineer from any further delay
and not to obstruct the course of justice. Mr.
Porter's reputation is well known, and 1 think
I can safely say that he is far above doing any
thing calculated to tarnish the rcpntation of a
member of the bar. Yours truly.
JOHN C. HATMAKEB,
Ass't Dist Att'y.
PrrrSBUBO, October 17, 1SS9
I am the engineer referred to by Mr. Hay
maker, and it was at my request that Mr.
Porter went to see Mr. Haymaker, myself
being with him. The conversation was as stated
by Mr. Haymaker. It was Friday morning,
two or three days before tbe case was finally
called. We jointly requested that my testi
mony be taken, as I had left my engine and was
uneasy to get home. Mr. Porter said nothing
to Mr. Haymaker or myself about tbe facts of
the case, nor did he express any opinion. This
was the only time Mr. Porter was there, and I
was responsible for that as it was a matter of
kindnws to me. 1 will be qualified to this, and
further will say after waiting until the case
was heard was never called as a witness. This
conversation took place in the waiting room,
at which time the grand jnry was locked up in
another room. Chables McDonald.
Mr. Porter said in regard to Judge
White's comments upon the case:
"What Messrs. Haymaker and McDonald
say is correct in every particular. What I did
was not wrong, and 1 owe no apology to Judge
White, Mr. Moore or the pnblic If Judge
White s keen sense of moral rectitude sees in
hese charges any cause for disbarment let him
prefer charges at once ana do his dntyasa
Judge. If I am right let him then make the
apology that in justice I am entitled to. In
this case he cannot bide behind his judicial er
mine and publicly slander me. If he was mis
led by the exaggerations of Mr. Moore of
conrse it is pardonable, but it is difficult tar,
me to believe that a man whom I have admired
and esteemed could have said what he did with
out sending for me."
STRIKE IN A PIPE DEPARTMENT.
The Thread Cotters In A. M. Byers it Co.'s
Will Strike for on Increase.
The thread cutters at A. M. Byers & Co.'s
mill on South Sixth street went on strike
yesterday for $1 60 per day.- The men, to
the number of 80, formally notified their
employers on Tuesday of their demand for
the increase of 15 cents per day, and they
say that, had not the firm discharged three
oftheir number who were supposed by them
to be- leaders in tbe movement, they were
willing to consider the matter further. Mr.
JSyers wanted tbem to return to work, say
ing that the matter would be fixed on Satur
day, but the men refused.
It was stated that the firm had agreed to
pay a few of the. strikers the wages de
manded, bnt the men held that, siuce they
all did the same work, they should receive
like pay. The men are confident of receiv
ing the increase. Yesterday a few men
went, to work in the strikers' places, but
very little work was turned out
A good many of the men returned to
work last night, having been granted the
additional 15 cents asked for. The firm
has not decided to -allow the rest of the
strikers to resume at the same terms. Those
who went back were rather afraid to do so
until the firm had furnished them protec
tion. Hostile demonstrations were indulged
in, and those still out believe their demand
will be complied with.

patrol wagon. '
A gray horse, driven by young Scott, a
son of the blacksmith on New Grant street,
ran away on Smithfield street near Seventh
avenue, threw the driver out of the sulky
and dashed south toward tbe postoffice.
Patrol Wagon No. 1 was going rapidly
north on Smithfield street, to answer a call
from box 25, at the corner of Eleventh
street and Liberty avenue. McAndrews
saw the runaway horse coming and tried to
pull to one side. There was not time, and
the horses collided. One of the shalts of
the sulky penetrated the breast of the off
horse iu the patrol wagon a distance of
eight inches and broke off. The sulky was
reduced to kindling wood and its horse tore
loose and escaped. The patrol team, re
covering from the shock, started at a terrifio
pace along Smithfield street At that
moment wagon No. 3, from the Twelfth
ward, turned into the street with a load of
prisoners for the Central station. Another
collision was imminent Officer McAn
drews tried in vain to hold his maddened
team. Officer Keller snecceded in catching
one of the horses by the bridle and tried to
stop them, but in vain. The team was,
however, drawn to one side of the street so
that it escaped wagon No. 3 very narrowly.
The wagon ran against a telegraph pole
and Officers McAndrews and Daniel Deal
were both thrown to the ground. In some
strange manner Officer Keller escaped in
jury. Tom McAndrews was thrown upon his
right side upon the stone pavement He
was unable'to rise, and was conveyed to the
Central station by patrol No. 3. Coroner
McDowell happened to be near and at
tended to the injured officer until the ar
rival of Dr. Moyer. Mr. McAndrews com
plained of pain in his head and in his right
groin, and it is feared that he is seriously
hurt internally. He was been for many
years on the police force, and was a Lieu
tenant until a short time ago. He volun
tarily relinquished that position to take the
place in the patrol service. He is very
popular in the department Daniel Deal,
ofpatrolNo. 1, suffered a slight injury to
his ankle, which made him lame. The
wagon was badly injured by the collision
with the telegraph pole. The wounded
horse could not be saved, and bled to death.
Young'Bcottj the driver of the sulky, was
arrested and will he held until an investiga
tion can be made.
During the remainder of the night patrol
No. 3 was put into service for the Central
station district, while patrol No. 5 was
called in from the Seventeenth ward to take
its place in the Twellth ward.
GLASS BLOWERS' TROUBLE.
The Men at the O'Hsra Works Agitated
Aboat a New Mold.
The employes of the OHara Glass Com
pany, corner of Thirtieth and Railroad
streets, are becoming agitated over a matter
that may lead to trouble between the firm
and themselves. On Sunday next a meeting
of Local Union No. 4, of the American Flint
Glass Workers' Association, will be held to
consider the matter, when definite action will
be taken. T, ,
The officials of the association say there is
no possibility of a strike, although the men
are much dissatisfied.
The cause of the trouble is due to a mold
in use in the works by which the services ot
one man are dispensed with. The mold is for
the purpose of giving a polish to glassware,
and if it was not used another man would
be given employment. The men have pro
tested against 'its use. claiming that the
agreement between the firm and the associa
tion does not allow it, and they are violat-i
ing the rules in consequence. The firm
claims the machine is not a violation of the
rules, as it is not used on finished ware.

Mr. Ross Explains Wby tbe McGaw and
Evans Resolution Was Lost.
Ittranspired yesterday that at the meet
ing of D. A. 3, K. of L., on Wednesday,
the following preamble and resolution were
brought np for consideration:
Whereas, We have learned through the
press and otherwise that L A. 300, K. of L., at
the late convention instructed Its delegates to
vote for the expulsion of J. L. Evans and
Homer McGaw from the order because of their
alleged antagonism to the officials o(LA 800;
therefore, be it
Resolved, That the delegate from D. A. 3 to
the General Assembly be instructed that if
charges are preferred against the above-mentioned
brothers he shall insist on a full, fair
and impartial trial, with the right to examine
charges at least three weeks before the trial,
the right to employ counsel, and all other
rights common to an American citizen.
The resolution was defeated.
Master Workman Ross yesterday said that
he had disapproved of the passing of the
resolution because it would have taken the
appearance of siding with the Central
Trades Council in their fight with Li A. 300,
which is composed of window glass workers,
of whose association James Campbell is
president. Should the charges brought
against Messrs. Homer L. McGaw and Jo
seph L. Evans, said -the Master Workman,
be laid before the General Assembly, he
wonld see to it that they got a fair and im
partial trial and their cases fully heard.
Mr. Joseph Evans was seen and said that
if any charges were brought against him at
Atlanta he would be thereto meet them,
HE WAS IH SORB HEED.

'General Chronic Catarrh
Is an inflammation of any mucous passage
usually giving rise to a discharge. We
have catarrh of the held, discharging
through the nose or dropping backward into
the throat The mucous membrane becomes
spongy and thickened, giving one an ap
pearance of having a cold.
In the most common forms of catarrh we
have redness, ulceration and a tendency to
dryness of mucous membrane of the nose
and throat The discharge is tenacious, pus
like matter, hoarseness, headache, poor
memory, loss- of smell, at times affecting
hearing sometimes forming scales in the
throat which can only be dislodged by the
finger, also forming in the nose and ex
tracted with difficulty. They come out like
green balls most every morning.
Catarrh may eause a fullness, soreness,
dryness, heat and. a constant desire to
swallow and clear the throat When.the
vocal cords are reached we have hoarseness
more or less severe. The next step is bron
chitis and cough, if predisposed there is
then dansrer of asthma, broncorrhcea and
consumption. On the other hand we may
have catarrh of the stomach and bowels per
verting digestive processes; chronio diar
rhea, dysentery and obsenre abdominal dis
orders, rendering one unfit for work and at
times indifferent to life.
Treatment overcomes the tendency to
colds. This can be done by mild' persever
ing treatment This together with internal
treatment and my apparatus for medicated
air will rapidly reduce, the thickened,
spungy membrane. No douches or washes
required with this treatment. 'TatienU

MB. ELI BBOW1T, OF JACKSBOEO, TENN.,
MAKES THE TSOLLOWlXa STATEMENT:
"I Was affected with catarrh in my bead
for ten years. The principal trouble tbe
first two years was the formation of scales
and scabs in my nostrils, the occasional
stopping np of one or both sides, a dryness
in my throat, a dull, heavy aching in the
front part of my head, a tendency to take
cold more easily than common, and con
tinual roaring, buzzing- and ringing sound
in my ears. After the disease bad run on
abont two years my hearing commenced to
fail, and for seven years I was so deaf that I
could not hear ordinary conversation. I
used the Moore-McGregor Medication in
June, 1888, and the very first application of
the treatment opened ont my ears and restored
my hearing fully; in fact it seemed that my
hearing was more acute the first few days
than it ever was in my life. My ears were
.very sensitive to the tone of the organ, the
rattle of dishes, footsteps on the floor and
many other, sounds that I could not hear at
"The first time Iused the AirMedicator it
caused cracking ana popping in my head
like pistol shots, the air was forced out
through my ears and these disagreeable'
sonnds that had annoyed me so long have
not been heard since, and np to this time
December 1, six months after commencing
the treatment my hearing is perfect"
