'!PHE HTTSBTTEG .DISPATCH," JKR1DAY ' OOTOBERSBf 1889;
agreed that the primary inquiry mnt be as
to the water supply. The main objection
urged against the canal is that water enough
ronld not be obtained. Mr. Moody had
thrown some light on this point. Both
Colonel Roberts and Mr. Goodwin ex
pressed the opinion that there was sufficient
water in the Conueaut or French creek
basin alone. Their explanations on that
subject indicated that the water supply
would not be a seriocs hindrance to the
canal project, and the opinions of the en
gineers caused much satisfaction to the
KO DEEPEB THAN THE OHIO.
Another point brought out in the dis
cussion related to the size of the canal. This
was considered in connection with the ques
tion of requisite water supply. It was agreed
that the canal should be no deeper than the
channel of the Ohio river, as the object of
its construction would be to enable shippers
to send coal and coke from Pittsburg to the
lake and iron ore Irora the lake to the Ohio
river points without breaking bulk.
Colonel Roberts and Mr. Goodwin were
requested br the other commissioners to set
together all the information they have on
the subject, to lay it before the commission
at its next meeting. Mr. Goodwin has in
lus possession detailed hydrographic survevs
of the Shenango river and a large part of the
old canal route. Colonel Roberts has all of
the data accumulated by bis father, the late'
Milnor Roberts, who was for many years
Chief Engineer ol the .brie and Beaver
canal. Several of the members of the com
mission expressed the opinion that when
their work had so far advanced as to show
the reasonable feasibility ot the project,
plenty of money would be subscribed by the
public-spirited citizens of interested locali
ties to enable the completion of any surveys
Only two routes have so far suggested
themselves to the commission one by the
general line of the old canal to the Beaver
liver, and the other from Lake Erie to the
upper Allegheny. This latter route would
require the construction of dams and locks
in the Allegheny, which finds some warm
advocates in this city.
BEAVEB TVILL GO WITH THEM.
It was agreed that the commission should,
at an early date, make a leisurely trip over
the proposed routes, and Governor Beaver
expressed his dessre to accompany the mem
bers on this tour. The commission ad
journed to meet in this city at the call of
tbe President. The next meeting will be
held probably within three weeks.
Afterthe meeting Governor Beaver said:
"I was agreeably surprised to find that the
engineers on the commission seem to be
satisfied in regard to the water supply. That
has been the great problem in my mind.
The project is immensely valuable. There
is no end to the value of it "Whether it
would be considered by Congress without
any reference to other links in a great chain
of water communication, I do not know.
II y own thought was it might be possible to
connect Xew York and 2Jew Orleans by an
immense ship canal. That would be valu
able from a militarv as well asa commercial
standpoint Both New York and New Or
leans might be shut up by a foreign power,
and the whole coast
WE COULD DEFT THE EAETH.
"If we had an inter-State canal it would
enable us simply to laugh at tbe whole
earth. This is the only needed link, except
that it would be necessary to widen the Erie
canal. "When you consider that there 3re
$100,000,000 Invested in tne Shenango val
ley alone, you get an idea ol the commercial
interests involved. Although this canal
would end at Beaver, yet Pittsburg would
be practically the terminus. Of course
such a canal would not, for tbe great bulic
of freight, ever be a real competitor with the
railroads. I am told that 2 miles an hour
is about all that could be made in a canal
with locks. The great advantage for the
coal, coke and iron ore shipping would be
that it would save breaking bulk from
mines to mills. The rates of freight are
already cheap. Such a project as this is
reallv national, and must be carried out by
the Federal Government The canal mav
be confined with the limits of Pennsylvania,
but the vessels passing through it would go
from port to port of a dozen States."
COL. UEERILIS VIEWS.
Be Doein't Faror Engineer Moody's
Scheme DbtIs Island Dam to be Re
paired in a Week Coal Dlen Jubilant.
Colonel "W. C. Merrill, the Govern
ment river engineer, who happened Tto
be in the city yesteraay, but returned to
"Washington last night, when told of Mr.
Moody's plans for the canal did not ap
prove of them. He said that it was ridicu
lous to think of drawing water from Lake
Chautauqua, since the latter is 800 feet
higher than Lake Erie. He claimed the
conduit would never work, since the water
would not run as fast as in the river. He
admitted it was possible to build a canal
to Lake Erie, since it had been
done, though the old canal leaked
a great deal, but that could easily be stopped.
About 25 years ago Mr. Boberts surveyed a
route. Colonel Merrill states that a water
way can be built from Beaver either to
Cleveland or Erie. If such a canal is con
structed, he claims it won't be worth any
thing unless four movable dams are built
between Pittsburgh and Beaver. Between
these two places the river is steeper than
anywhere else in the course. The fall is 17
inches for tbe first 20 miles, and these dams
would have to built vertically, the one seven
feet below the other until the level of the
canal at Beaver is reached. He says Mr.
French's plan to build a canal in the middle
of the river is nonsensical.
Concerning the depth of the proposed
canal Colonel Merrill said it would have to
be at least 6) feet to be of any value. It
would then float good-sized vessels. A
depth of 2 feet is too shallow and practi
cally useless. All the French canals are
not less than 6 feet deep. I
With reference to the present condition of
Davis Island dam, Colonel Merrill writes
the following explanation to The Dis
patch: To tbe Editor or The Dlpatch:
October 2t 18S9.
As your columns of this morning contained a
criticism upon tbe plan adopted at Davis Island
dam ol drawing off the pool in order to repair
the lower lock catcpossiblya word from me
on this subject will not bo amiss. The difficulty
at the lock is dneto the fact that the friction
rollers on the gate had cut into the oak sill so
far as to permit the gato wheels to slip off or
the iron track, in consequence of which they
also cut into the wooden sill and tore up tbe
track. Tbe flat iron track bar, on which the
wheels rested, was forced entirely through the
gate, and several of the axles wero broken. It
was not possible to work the gate any longer
In such a condition and repairs wero impera
tive. It was hoped and expected that we could get
at the gate by buildinga coffer across the lower
end of the lock and then pumping out without
lowering the pool. This method was tried
thoroughly, but it was found that the leakage
through the gravel under tho river wall was
more than the capacity or two 10-inch pumps,
and so much more that it seemed hopeless to
attempt to empty the lock with double thn
number of pumps, even had they been avail
able, which was not the case.
Under these circumstances it was necessary
either to cut off the greater part or the lock by
building a second coffer dam just above tho
lower gate, or to take off tho head of water
by lowering the pool and then trv again
with the pumns on hand, Tbe advantage of
the latter method was that the work could be
done in half tbe time. Alter consulting with
the coal shippers or Pittsburg it was round that
all the coal afloat could be placed where it
would not be injured atter the pool was low
ered, and under these circumstances I author
ized Mr. Martin to draw down the pool. Thus
far I have heard of no injury to river interests,
and while all regret tbe necessity ot drawing
off the water, I believe thatallacamescem
thinking that tbe quicker method or
repair was properly selected. At tho present
the work is progressing very favorably, tho
lock nan been pumped out and ono
new axle baa been pnt in place. We have
every expectation of finishing the work in less
than a week. As soon as the gate is repaired
the wickets will be raised and tbe pool will be
Clled, and it will stay filled until a riso comes,
whether the river freezes or cot.
In this connection it would be well to impress
on the public tbe fact that many of tbe details
at the Dans Island dam were necessarily novel,
and we have bad vast and unexpected difficul
ties with, drift. Many things have required
modification or strengthening, bnt we have
thus far met with no failure for which we have
cot been able to find a remedy, and every step
thus far made has been a step forward toward

Tliat Calls Quay Into Pitts
burg Ahead of Magee.
EUMOR WITH MANY WINGS
Flies From One Politician's Tongue
to Another's, in Explanation.
Indicates Only That Boyer s Election Host
Pint he Assured.
mM PAIS A TISIT TO THE SPHIKX
The political chaps went about the streets
yesterday softly whistling the good old
Scotch air, "The King Shall Have His Own
Again," bearing in mind the fact that C. L.
Magee, Esq., was to return within a few
hours and assume his grip upon local poli
tics. But with his usual swiftly-sudden
manner of putting in an appearance when
least expected, Senator Matthew Stanley
Quay quietly arrived in town, antedating
the late sojourner in Europe by a day or two.
He went to the Seventh Avenue Hotel,
where he later received a Dispatch repre
sentative. "Well, Senator," asked the newspaper
man, "what did yon say to President Har
rison in your two hours' interview with him
last Saturday afternoon, prior to yonr de

"Does the return of Mr. C. L. Magee have
any bearing upon your plans?"
"What a handsome majority Boyer is
going to have in the State!" This was said
enthusiastically, and was evidently anal
agous to Mr. Magee's remarks upon the
Eiffel tower and Senator Delamater.
"Is there going to be that rumored shak
ing up in Allegheny county politics?"
"Until Mr. Boyer is elected, and by the
largest possible majority, bis candidacy
must be considered the paramount and en

The Senator's monosyllables thereafter in
dicated business to be attended to. Its
nature, though secret is more than surmised
to be anticipatory of, If not resultant upon,
the return of Mr. Magee. One of those
gentlemen whose pulse is as assiduouslv
and as often felt by one side as the other,said
"There are a creat many questions to be
asked within tbe next few days. Mr. Ma
gee is athirst for information of a personal
nature. He will inquire in detail into the
truth of the report that, outside of the well
known Independents in City Councils, but
two oi tne remainder are still with mm,
while the others are 'Flinn men' to the core,
so far as personal assurances of recent date
to the Hon. William are concerned. Mr.
Magee, rumor hath it, may also stand up
Mr. J. O. Brown and inquire for certain
Magee men who were cold-shouldered by the
reorganization deal of the Fire Department.
He will also ask Mr. Brown why a number
of ward hustlers on the fire and police
forces have had their political teeth and claws
removed by a little shuffle called 'transferred
MAT POSSESS CUEIOSITT.
"Mr. Magee may also possess a mild curi
osity to know why Mr. Flinn and his
friends have caused'General Hastings some
pleasure by declaring their intention to in
duce Major E. A. Montooth to withdraw in
order that they, may turn in for theBelle
fonte man. Last of all, there are said to be
a lot of chaps who have lately been going
around breathing exclusive allegiance to
the Hon. William Flinn. But as the other
handsome politician approaches his native
heath the boasted courage of these fellow.
like that of the iamous Bob Acres, has
oozed out at their finger-tips, and their ex
pressions during the last 24 hours indicate
that a lot of political 'shorts' are 'running
That there is something behind the larger
portion of the above statements seems satis
factorily established by the events of yes
terday. It may be that when Mr. Magee
arrives and asks in the language of the old
song, "Who's been here since I've been
goner the answer will be "il. S. Quay."
To retrograde a few weeks, an alliance
between Senator Quay and William Flinn
was heralded as the cherished hope of a dis
tinguished literary citizen of Pittsburg. By
his offices sundry meeting"! between the two
leaders were arranged and took place. It
will be remembered that Mr. Flinn said, in
an interview printed in The Dispatch the
evening of the day of the final conference:
"Tne sole results of my seven interviews
with Mr. Quay are that I have become
better acquainted with him." The literary
gentleman's hopes were thus, seemingly,
nipped in the bud.
Mr. Flinn walked into the Seventh Ave
nue Hotel yesterday-morning and took the
elevator to room 123. He did not have his
pasteboard sent up, for the simple reason
that it was by his own choice of time, date
and place that the conference was fixed.
LAY THE SIGNIFICANCE.
Previous meetings had been by another
man's intervention. That of yesterday was
of Mr. Flmn's own arrangement. A knot
of politicians who saw the tall form of the
deputy leader disappearing in the little
cuddy-hole of a passage which leads to the
elevator whistled and chorused their as
tonishment. "Youcandcpend on it," said one whistler,
"that Mr. Flinn Is alarmed at the defection
of his followers consequent upon Mr.
Magee's return. Ho seefts Senator Quay's
help, as sure as I am a foot high."
"There is a change impending all along
the line," said another onlooker. "You re
member that interview in which Congress
man Dalzell hinted that, if his candidate
for the postoffice failed to make the riffle, he
would revenge himself upon the adminis
tration? Well, I have it pretty straight
that a man who is exceedingly close to the
President made it his business to see Mr.
Dalzell recently and request an explanation
of the language used in the interview. Mr.
Dalzell said that he had been misunderstood
by the reporter; that what he meant
say was mat, u no coma get In

the President s mend took occasion to hiru

elections had given a nice margin of Bepul

wasnot as important as heretofore, and that
Congressman Dalzell's reasonably good
chances for an important chairmanship in
the organization of the House had been
seriously imperiled by even the hint that
he might prove to be a 'kicker.' Since then
Mr. Dalzell's enthusiasm for his candidate
for Postmaster is said to hare been less pro
Whatever transpired at the Seventh
Avenue Hotel there was nothing ascertain
able from the parties directly interested.
Dnring the day Hon. Walter Lyon and
Hon. S. D. Warmcastle -were visitors of
Senator Quay. The senator left for Beaver
on an early evening train. He will remain
there for several days.
Later in the afternoon Congressman
Bayne visited the County Committee head
quarters and had an earnest conference with
AY. D. Porter, Chairman of the County
Committee. Despite, however, the disturb
ing rumors in regard to local politics, there
are those who believe that an all-around
love-feast will be indulged in by the Magee
and Flinn men, who will oppose a solid
face-front to their common enemy.
Mr. C. L. Magee will leave New York
City this evening and is expected to arrive
In Pittsburg at about 7:45 o'clock to-morrow
morning. No preparations have been made
for any formal reception of Mr. Magee in
this city, but a number of bis friends will
meet him at the depot. It is probable that
he will visit the Young Men's .Republican
Tariff Club in the evening, and will be
given an informal reception.

Editor Johnson Expands Upon the

San Spots Are Wounds in the San Made by
A WEIED AND W0NDEEFUL WARNING
An exquisitely humorous scien tifie dis"
quisition was delivered by the famous col
ored orator, Mr. O. A. Johnson, last evening
in the Warren M. E. Chapel, Fulton street
Mr. Johnson is a well-known colored editor
of the British Lion, of Hamilton, Ont., and
the American Eagle, of New York. The
audience, though not very large, comprised
some of the most prominent colored Pitts
burgers, among others "Broadax'' Smith,
Rev. L H. Watson, Eev. Mr. Adams, of
Green Street Baptist Church, Allegheny,
Geo. A. Brooks Reed, I.T.Thompson, E.
L. Depew and Eev. S. Pratt
After a few introductory words from
Messrs. Smith, Watson and Adams, the
lecturer arose, and introduced himself
to his audience. Mr. Johnson is a benevo
lent looking gentleman for an editor, and
speaks with great force and emphasis. He
said: "I am sorry Editor Smith must leave
us so early. He would have profited by my
lecture as all my pronouncements are read
from one end ot the country to another. I
live in Hamilton, Ontario, and am the only
colored journalist in Canada; publishing
my papers for the unity and benefit of my
fellow Afro-Americans. And
ITOTV A WOBD
about my race. I think there's a great deal
too much psalm-singing and praying among
the colored people. They waste their time
in making preparations for heaven, while
they ought to know that all the arrange
ments for getting them there were made
long ago.. White men are building cities
and founding great families, while tbe col
ored men are adding an extra polish to their
already over-sanctified souls."
The lecturpr here compared the Northern
with the Southern Afro-Americans, greatly
to the advantage ot tne latter, in tne south
colored men were bankers, politicians and
lawyers. In the North they were menials.
The ministers were largely responsible for
this. They should preach how to get on in
the world, and let men get to heaven in
their own way. He then touched on what
he called "negro aristocracy," claiming that
there were gradations in the colored races
just as there were in the white races, fie
was proud to belong to the "negro aristoc
racy," and despised all vulgar colored
people. Finally, he came to the lecture of
the night, the subject of which was, "Sun
he's a boss scientist.
Mr. Johnson said: "I've met hundreds
of great scientists, but none of them could
account fo- the great spots we see on the
sun's surface. Where these failed, I pur
pose to Eucceed. I believe that scientists
don't understand what the sun is composed
of, and that is the cause of their failure.
Now I am here to explain the sun's compo
sition, and if yon don't understand me it is
not my fault I have contracted to supply
you with ideas, but my contract didn't in
"The sun is madeof coal anthracite coal,
which gives out no perceptible smoke. This
coal is being slowly burned; and in about 25
years and 6 months the great fire which
rages up there, shall have reduced the sun
to ashes. It shall float in space, a charred
and blackened cinder.
"Now as to the sun spots. The great
scientists are thoroughly confused over the
sun spots, but I have come to their rescue.
These spots are simply vast holes in the
outer envelope of the sun's disk. Tbe aver
age width of the spots is about 13,000 miles;
so you may imagine what big holes they are.
As to their origin, it is simple. They are
caused by flying meteors and meteoric'mat
ter. which, drawn forward by the occult at
traction of the sun, plunge into the outer
crust of the mighty planet, and make great
wounds in it3 sides. These spots, or cavi
ties, are filled by vapors which keep the
flames of the sun at a distance. The solar
atmosphere hides the real majesty of the
light of the universe. In six years 'hence,
this atmosphere will be destroyed, and we
shall then see that the sun is quite blue.
MOEE SUNS EN EOUTE.
"In about 12 years ten other suns shall
also appear, so that we won't miss our old
sun when it is burned out The sun spots
were first noticed by Galileo in 1608. This
Galileo conldn't hold a candle to our mod
ern scientists. Yet I never met or beard of
a modern scientist who could explain where
thunder comes lrom, or where the winds are
stored up when not actively engaged. Here
I would wish to destroy forever a popular
fallacy. It is not the lightning which kills
it is the thunderl You should be afraid
of the thunder, not of the lightning. Oppo
sition great men may contradict this, but
that doesn't take away from its truth. There
are several things I know that the world
doesn't know. For instance, I know that
the world will be destroyed totally and
without appeal in 31 years' from to-night"
Here there was a great sensation among
the audience. Broadax shook his haughty
head and declared he didn't care if the world
did goj he wouldn't be here in 30 years.
Mr. Johnson then continued: "I don't
want to frighten anybody, but my duty com
pels me to give you timely warning.
GIVES TIMELY WAHNING.
"In 31 years the whole structnre must be
done away with. The electricity in the earth
will come into collision with tbe earth's in
ternal fires, and the result will be explosion
and total annihilation. There's no getting
out of a fact, and that's a fact.
"I -would like to talk to you about the pop
ular theory that the earth is round or oval.
I have very strong doubts on that subject,
but I have no time to ventilate the subject.
Beside, I dont want to confuse you; you are
quite confused enough already. In fact, I
very much doubt if you'll sleep much after
what I've told you. To-morrow night I'll
tell the Allegheny people, in Green Street
Baptist Church, how the wind is made up,
and where it hides when not working. If
there's any other man in the States who can
tell that I defy him to step forward.
"In conclusion, let me entreat you to get
your affairs in order before the great blow
ing up of the world occurs. Insure yonr
lives, live better lives. The end is at hand.
It is coming; there's not the smallest doubt
on that head. That settles the matter."
Here the lecture was pronounced at a con
clusion, and hearty applause rewarded Mr.
C. A. Johnson's eloquent efforts.

tbp Change News of tbe Balloting In
A special meeting of Acme Council No.
219, Jr. O. U. A. M., was held in their hall
on South Eighteenth street last night to dis
cuss the proposed change of the name of the
order, on which question all councils in the
order will take an individual vote. There
were representatives present from several
The members and visitors discussed the
question freely, and their expressions indi
cated that the change will not be approved
in Acme Council at least It was reported
that Philadelphia Council, one of the largest
in the order, had already voted ou the
change, and had unanimously declared it
self for the present name.
It isclaimed by many that the National
Council has done an improper thing by
sending out notices to the effect that that
body at its last session struck ont the name
"Junior Order of United American Me
chanics" and inserted the words "Ameri
can Legion," and asking the subordinate
councils to approve the action. The
question has been raised, "Has the National
Council the power to change the name, and
if so, why is the approval of subordinate
councils asked?" Some of the speakers ar
gued hut night that the National Council
is anxions for the change and the notices
were sent ont for the purpose of deceiving
new councils, the members of which would
think because the National Council had
changed the name their duty was to approve

change of nameisthe extreme cost copoected
with it and the fact that the order has flour
ished for nearly 50 years and gained a mem
bership of nearly 60,000 under the Jr. O. U.
A number of the leading members of the
order were seen last evening and asked the
probable result of the vote on changing the
name of the order, and the general opinion
was that no change would be made. The
name now is as distinctively American as it
would be if changed to the American
Legion, -and the alteration would be pro
ductive of no benefit
THE JAIL WAEDEKSH1P.
Two Opponents to Warden Berlin's Candi
dacy HavePresented Themselves.
In the discussion of the question of majori
ties in the D istrict Attorneyship contest, and
the probabilities of the Prohibitionist can
didate for State Treasurer beating every
body out of sight there is one contest in
which a good deal is being done quietly to
defeat the present incumbent without much
splurge being made on the subject.
The term of Warden Berlin expires next
January, and there are two candidates in
the field who are said to be not alone will
ing but anxious to run matters at tbe jail
and fill the high stool at the Warden's desk.
Leon J. Long, Clerk of the Criminal
Court, as an artist wishes to draw the line
between recording the misdeeds of the gen
eral public and taking charge of that por
tion of the community which puts itself
in a position to be taken care of by the
county until it accounts pr its misdeeds,
with a decided preference in favor of the
William Smith, at present a deputy
sheriff, and formerly warden of the old jail,
thinks experience in the position entitles
him to again assume the control of the jail,
and is in the field with a number of backers.
John Berlin, the present warden, is not
losing very much rest on the question, and
declines to speak on the subject. His ad
ministration of the affairs of the jail, he
says, is all tbe claim be chooses to put in for
continuance in the office, and the record has
been so often inspected that the judges, the
county commissioners, the mayors of both
cities, and others who have a voice in the
choice of warden, have been in a position to
see the qualifications Mr. Berlin possesses.

There were abont 200 people present at the
opening meotlng of the Prohibition cam
paign in Lafayette Hall, last evening. J.
D. Simon, of Braddock, presided, and the
proceedings were opened with prayer by Dr.
Robinson, of Allegheny. The personnel of
the meeting was a truly typical temperance
gathering, the ladies being in force in the
The most important point in making a
statistical estimate of the value of the meet
ing as a political factor was the question of
ho w many voters were" present, and next how
many workers. To the latter class the ladies
nudonbtedly belong, bnt as they are still
debarred from a voice in the government of
the State, they could not be classed with the
Deducting the ladies, the people nnder
age and others who had no vote, the
number of people present who could place a
ballot in the box for Mr. Johnston, as State
Treasurer, might be safely estimated at SO.
Still John A. McConnell was jubilant over
the size of tbe meeting and its promise of
great results, and said: "This is where we
have the advantage ot the two parties. We
have a meeting ahead of them, and do you
know the reason why? Because neither of
them can raise enough people to hold a
CHAIBMAIT STEVEfS OHATED.
A. A. Stevens, of Cambria county. Chair
man of the State Prohibition Committee, .
was the first speaker of the evening. He
said the liqnor question was the only politi
cal question in the country unsettled. The
tariff and pension questions are settled so
far as either political party is concerned,
but the liqnor question remains only to be
settled at the ballot box. Mr. Stevens
asserted that the Liquor League of Penn
sylvania secured whatever legislation they
demanded because both political parties are
afraid to refuse, and the only way to secure
legislation in tbe interest of morality and
sobriety is through the Prohibition party.
If the party fails to settle the Question
properly the history of the country for the
next century will be the same as that of
Borne, where vice and immorality was
allowed to control the Government No
country can live which allows right virtue
and integrity to be subordinated by vice and
A MICHIGAN OEATOB.
M. J. Fanning, of Michigan, was then in
troduced. He said the greatest good to the
greatest number of people, and not party
supremacy, is what the Prohibition party fs
aiming at. "But," said he, "if our Savior
was' on earth running for an office, and Judas
and Barabbas were his opponents, there are
people who would forsake Him and stick
to Judas or the other fellow because they
were the regular nominees of their parties.
We want measures, not men. The pre
sumption is that if Bill Jones or Tom
Smith had been the Bepublican candidate
tor President last fall Cleveland would
have been defeated lust the same. Mr.
Harrison is President because the platform
upon which he stood was indorsed."
Mr. Fanning took up the wage question,
and gave statistics showing that in Penn
sylvania the average salary for wageworkers,
including women and children, is $336; in
Ohio, 5369, and in Nevada, $786 per year,
showing that the farther west tbe greater
the wages, owing to a Smaller proportion of
women employed. In England more than
50 per cent of the wageworkers are women
and children, while in America the num
ber is about 33 per cent The speaker
pointed to tbe saloon, for an answer to the
question, why are so many women and chil
dren employed at labor?
THE CAPITALISTS' END.
He then took up the question of capital
and labor and tbe argument that if the
liquor traffic is wiped out thousands of men
will be thrown out of work and capital will
be caused to remain idle. As water seeks
its level, so capital seeks investment And
if the capital that gives employment to only
33,000 people were invested in some other
industry there would be a demand for labor
in this country that could scarcely be sup
plied, and wages would increase.
HOPEFUL PE0SPECT3 ADVANCED.
Every man now brutalized by the laws.
sustained and supported by the two old
parties, would be humanized by virtue, lib
erty and independence.
Mr. Fanning, said he was willing to in
dorse all that is safd by the advocates of
free trade and tariff, but it still follows that
either cannot exist without injury to all
lines of indnstry, while an absolute prohi
bition of the liquor traffic, with either pro
tection or free trade, will give a boom to
The workers of the party held a confer
ence yesterday afternoon in Lafayette Hall,
A. A. Berker, of Cambria county, presid
ing. He said the defeat of the Constitu
tional amendment meant the hastening of
prohibition. A number of other addresses
were made and roseate reports made by mem
bers of the State and County Committees,
all agreed that the defeat of the Constitu
tional amendment last June made rather a
favorable showing than otherwise for the
prohibition cause, as it awakened the peo
ple to the necessity of more vigorous action.
