PITTSBURG. WEDNESDAY, OCT. 30, 1S88.
A HEED OF H0VELTY.
Governor Foraker has recovered from his
illness and tbe forgery set back sufficiently
to declare in an interview that the Republic
ans are sure to win in the Ohio election.
The leading Ohio Democrats have already
gone on record to the effect that the certainty
of their success approximates that of death
In New York also each side has demon
strated to its own satisfaction that the irre
trievable way in which the other side is
plastered over with that ceiling scandal fore
dooms it to a crushing defeat. In Virginia,
of course, the Democrats have announced
their victory as a sure thing; while Mahone
proudly points to the verdict of the infalli
ble bettors, as assuring him that be has got
the State and tbe offices thereof, in his
In short, the usual ante-election certainty
of each party that it is going to win is
manifesting itself everywhere except in
Pennsylvania, where there is no dispute
perhaps because no one cares enough
about it to dispute as to the coming
result The display of the paradoxically
sure thing for both sides is the regular
phenomenon of politics the week before
"Why should not the politicians introduce
something fresh in their canvass, by an
nouncing that tbeir party is going to be de
feated and then surprising the public with a
sweeping vict jy?
TEE OBSTEUCnVE BRIDGES.
The protests of the coal shippers over the
obstruction of the Ohio river by the work on
the bridges at Beaver and Wheeling have
been iully corroborated by the results.
Twelve million bushels, or nearly 600,000
tons, of coal were ready to go out on the
present r'se of the river; but only about a
third of l. will be shipped, because more
than that cannot be got past the bridges.
Two coal barges have been wrecked at the
Beaver bridge, and the destructive abilities
of the "Wheeling bridge have not been tested
at this writing. In other words the move
ment of hundreds of thousands of dollars
worth of freight is obstructed and rendered
hazardous because the recognized principle
of doing this bridge work when navigation
is suspended has not been faithfully en
forced. One lesson of that kind should be
enough to secure its enforcement for the
AN ELECTBICAL DILEMMA.
The de lverance of the Executive Commit
tee, o tte National Electric Light Associa
tion, that overhead wires can be insulated so
as to be made safe for high tension currents,
and that it is not only practicable but easy
to do so, contains a feature which is worthy
the attention of the public as well as of the
The National Electric Light Association,
as its name shows, is an organization of com
panies engaged in electric lighting through
out the United States. The declaration of
the Executive Committee, therefore.amounts
to an authoritative admission that the wires
of these companies might easily have been
made safe. But the deaths of numerous per
sons in various parts of the country, show
that this is just what has not been done; and
it indicates, therefore, that some of the
members of the association, by the neglect of
practicable and easy precautions, have com
The dilemma is thus presented to the
Electric Light Association of practically as
serting that some of its members ought to be
sent to the penitentiary, or admitting that
its Executive Committee, from interested
motives, has asserted what is not true. The
latter is the more charitable; but the country
can leave the choice to the association pro
vided it is followed to its legitimate conclu
sion. AN HONORABLE LITE.
The death of Dr. William K. Herrou
yesterday removes one of the leading citi
zens oi the community, whose long and ac
tive life here has been full of unobtrusive
benefit to the pnblic Dr. Herron has not
only been prominent in the medical practice
of the two cities for many years, but he also
occupied a leading position in scientific re
search, and has contributed largely, both by
nis work and by the aid which he gave
others, to the scientific progress of the com
munity. The disinterested character of his
scientific labors is shown by the fact that
while they resulted in valuable discoveries
and devices, he never took out any patents,
but left his ideas free for the use of the
world. Few men can leave behind them at
the end of their lives a record of more steady
and unobtrusive work for the general bene
fit than that which crowns the honorable
and useful career of Dr. Herron.
The defense of Chambers, the Hissourian,
who recently shot and killed an enemy who
had come to levy on his property, is unique
in its presentation, although it has a good
deal in common with other excuses of
humanity. The declaration of the prisoner
on his examination that be killed Bowman
"because he was a blank scoundrel" ap
peared adequate to the man who offered it
apparently; because he returned to it fre
quently as a full explanation of the crime.
The impartial public will doubtless have
of scoundrels of theblankest variety does
not justify even the sufferers from their
scoundrelism in taking arms against the sea
of scoundrels and by shooting to end them.
The plea as a justification of "homicide is
-novel, and all will agree that it is Inad-
. omissible. Yet the idea that, because seme-
missible for the offended person to get even
by committing a greater wrong, has
been practically advanced many times.
Thirteen years ago it was claimed
on behalf of an allegedly reform
Presidcntal candidate who first brought the
systematic use of money into the national
elections, that because his opponents were
suspected of trying to secure the vote pf
certain States to" which they were not en
titled, therefore it was all right for him to
buy the votes of electors out and out The
regular thing in corporate disputes, when
one corporation commit! trespass on prop
erty claimed by another, is for the other to
raise a riot; and only the other day one of
them revenged an alleged breach of contract,
by highway robbery in the shape of steal
ing an engine. It has been asserted by the
great trusts that outside competitors go
into the business only to sell out; which
was deemed on such occasions to justify
conspiracies to crush them out All this
is on the same basis as the asser
tion of the individual right to shoot
the blank scoundrels upon the individual
verdict that they belong to that class.
All of which is ot course a substitution
of anarchy for government by law. The
law should undertake the punishment of
scoundrelism, and when individuals or cor
porations take the law in their own hands,
it leaves room for a question whether the
scoundrels are the shot or the shooters.
HISS CALDWELL'S BEPBIEVE.
Hiss Hay Gwendoline Caldwell, the
Washington heiress, has been reprieved.
Her marriage to Prince Murat has been
postponed, because of some hitch with re
gard to the pecuniary settlements, it is said,
Tbe announcement of the reprieve will not
surprise those who have read what Miss
Caldwell said the other day on the question
of pocket-money for his royal highness.
These were her words: "I always intend to
be my own financier. I am willing to allow
any husband I may have a sufficient income
to dress well and pay his club dues, but he
will never have the xnauagement of a cent
of my principal."
This was enough to alarm any timid, love
sick prince. What does a sprig of royalty
ally itself with a republican blossom for if
there is to be a limit to the princely allow
ance? No, if Hiss Caldwell wants a hus
band who is not more eager to embrace her
bank account than herself, she must not ex
pect to find him in the courts of the Old
World. No wonder Prince Murat displays
most intense irritation about the matter.
He is another royal beauty, and his tender
spot is his pocketbook. Treat that well and
he cares not what happens. If the reprieve
can be made permanent national congratu
lations to Miss Caldwell will be in order.
NOT YET ADVANCED.
It is satisfactory to learn that the report
of an advance in the ore rate from the lake
ports, which called forth the editorial re
marks in yesterday's Dispatch, was with
out foundation. The interviews with rail
road and iron men given elsewhere, show
that no advance whatever has yet been
made. The usual 5 cent advance on fin
ished iron freights for the winter is looked
for before lone, and there is a feeling
among railroad men that with the improve
ment in tbe iron trade, Pittsburg can afford
to pay somewhat better freight rates all
around; but that is a xery different thing
from the disposition to squeeze the last cent
ont the business a disposition plainly in
volved in putting up the charge on the fund
amental ore traffic to the old rate of $1 50,
which was practically abandoned years ago.
The feeling in railroad circles that Pitts
burg is able to pay better rates than she was
at the beginning of the year, is natural and
not altogether unfounded. But the rail
road interest should remember two things.
If Pittsburg is prosperous the railroads
share that prosperity by gaining an im
mense volume of traffic at rates which
are now and always have been more profita
ble than those paid by any other traffic of
similar volume in the country. The next is
that it is more for their advantage to cher
ish that prosperity that to cut it short by
squeezing everything that can be got out of
it To leave the cost of producing and ship
ping iron and steel on a conservative basis
is the surest method of making the prosper
ity lasting. To squeeze up the cost of
freight and materials is the surest way of
sending prices to a point which will check
demand and produce a reaction that must
pinch all the interests involved.
Let our railroad friends be wise and con
tent themselves with the magnificent traffic
that they now enjoy. If they cherish that
by permitting the city which produces it
the full profit of its present prosperity, they
will serve both their own and the public in
terest KEEPING THE LEGAL TENDEES
It is satisfactory to learn that the Execu
tive Committee of the Bankers' Association,
to which was referred the St John proposi
tion of doubling the silver coinage and re
tiring the greenback circulation, has re
ported against it The committee by a vote of
12 to 3 pronounces the retirement of the
greenbacks a practical impossibility, and
declares its opposition to the use of taxation
to retire the non-interest-bearing debt, while
the interest-bearing debt remains.
This ought to place a check on the rather
strenuous claims of certain people to repre
sent the financial interests of the East, in
the claim that the greenback circulation
must be got rid of atall hazards. So strong was
this sentiment supposed to be that the St
John proposition was based upon the com
promise of accepting the hated silver in or
der to get rid of the hated greenbacks. The
senselessness, cr worse, of this proposition is
shown by the fact that the question of silver
or gold is entirely separate from that of
legal tenders. It is an issue for the future
whether gold and silver can be made to cir
culate side by side, with free coinage to each;
or whether one shall entirely supplant the
other. But when that is settled the ques
tion whether a Government currency re
deemable in coin and based on adequate re
serve is permissible or not is one that has
been amply decided by experience.
Whether gold or silver, or both, shall be
the standard, the legal tender redeemable
on presentation is just as good as a certifi
cate for the gold or silver. While an irre
deemable paper currency means inflation
and then explosion, the experience of tea
years shows that our legal tender circulation,
being practically a gold certificate, is the
most reliable and convenient currency
known. We are glad to recognize an author
itative disavowal on the port of the' bankers,
of the monomania that has appeared in some
financial quarters for getting rid of it
The information comes that one of the
prominent candidates tor Senatorial honors
in North Dakota is one named "Billy
Budge." The name is not entirely pre
possessing, but it is necessary to remember
that budge is a power in politics.
It is not pleasant to suspect such a thing,
but the delay of the N ew York courts in the
case of tbe Sugar -Refineries Company cre-
.uiBpeKm that 'inside ,wlrefl are
being pulled to let the trust down easily.
There is also complaint that the Interstate
Commerce Commission is unduly dilatory
in its decision of the case of Coxes Bros. &
Co. against the Lehigh Valley Railroad,
for discriminations. The criticisms may be
unfounded in both cases, but both are of a
nature in which decisions should be ren
dered without any more delay than is neces
sary for thorough consideration.
The Imperial Duke John, of Austria,
who has renounced his imperial privileges
and wants to be captain of a first-class mer
chant ship, might get a position in the new
steamship lines, which this country is going
to start to South America. It would be a
more creditable way of getting a living than
marrying an American heiress.
Apbopos of the terrible experience of the
castaways from the steamer Earnmoor, the
Philadelphia Press proposes to take the
opinions of its readers whether it is right or
wrong for people who are starving to eat
their fellow creatures. The question is a
somewhat ghastly and difficult one. As the
vast majority of us are not likely to
have to solve that question, it will be much
more pertinent to take a vote that the trusts
and combines on land, which are not starv
ing, have no right to eat up their fellow
creatures, the common people.
The agony about the Philadelphia post
office is over and Fields has the place. As
this will cause Senator Quay to seek com
pensations elsewhere, it will be likely to
mate the Pittsburg postoffice fight more in
teresting than ever.
Judge Fxnletteb, of Philadelphia, has
been making some sharp deliverances on
corporate practices recently, and he added
to them the other day, in a case where a
Ftockholder had to appeal to the courts to
get a sight of the books of his corporation.
He obtained the authority with the remark
from the Judge that "Souie officers appear
to think they own the corporation, but that
time, has passed." It is to be hoped that
other courts will join in making it plain
that the time has passed beyond any ques
tion. New Yobk has been kept so busy trying
to win the world's championship of baseball
that she has no time or money to spend on
such a side issue as trying to win the
Concerning the remark of Governor
Hill that the name of his candidate for 1892
was "a secret," the Philadelphia Ledger
says that the secret is being imparted to the
public generally to the effect that "the Gov
ernor is for D. B. H 11." That equivocal
way of "putting it contains an unfortunate
suggestion ot a close relationship between
the Governor's candidate and the place of
fire and brimstone.

A Small Change, bat an .Embarrassing One
A Deacon' Use of Prayer Tiro Can
Flay at Prayerful Personalities.
Fob the convenience of nocturnal customers
a druggist, whose store is on one of the prin
cipal streets in Allegheny,, has long had beside
his store door a speaking tube and an electric
button. In order to make the month of tho
tube noticeable he had the words "speak here"
painted about it thus:
For years the sign has guided the multitude
to break: in upon the druggist's slumbers.
Some days ago, however, a painstaking wag
went to work upon the sign with a paint brush.
When he had finished the job the legend,
tempting to the dry and ungodly wayfarer,
Paint has rehabilitated the sign, but the In
quiries for illegal liquors keep up at the drug
gist's innocent soda water fountain.
The story Is being told In Presbyterian circles
that at tbe last meeting of the American Board
a brother who had been sat down on by tbe
presiding officer was asked later on to lead in
prayer. He accepted the invitation gladly, and
in a very fervent way prayed ; "Lord, bestow
good sense upon our Moderator, for he stands
badly in need of some I"
Whether the story is trae or not, and it has
nothing impossible about it, it reminds me of
an experience which was actually my own.
In a certain household it was the custom to
hold family prayers the last thing at night As
a rule tbe paternal head of the family read the
prayers ont of an old blue-backed scrap book
which contained some of the grandest Invoca
tions of Qod's mercy and most eloquent thanks
givings that I ever heard. The beauty of all
these prayers was that they brought peace into
the family, poured oil on troubled waters,. and
never could be twisted into personal bearing.
Prayers, to my mind, should never wonnd any
oneIt is quite a different and a laudable qual
ity in a prayer, however, to stir the conscience.
Well, it happened every once in a while that
the benevolent paterfamilias was called from
home. Whenever this happened the other
head of the family read prayers, and being a
rather pious woman and Evangelical in her
leanings, she trusted to prayers of ber own
composing. They were not great in a literary
sense; neither was the spirit that pervaded
them lofty, but they were terribly personal.
Every person upon their knees In that room
was acquainted with the heinous character of
his or her misdoings that day. The sins were
apportioned accurately and all that lacked ot
tbe complete identification of tbe sinners was
their names. It made that time of prayer any
thing but emollient in its effects. It should be
added that the good lady was not the mother
in fact of the children for whom sho prayed.
One night it happened that m the absence of
the paternal pastor and his alternate being so
hoarse that she could not speak above a whisper,
a youth fresh from college was called upon to
offer up prayer. He fell back upon "the gov
ernor's" blue book for the body of that little
service, but when he came to the end of the
prayers appointed for that day he could not
resist the temptation to payback a predecessor
in ber own coin. He prayed accordingly with
startling fervor for the reform and spiritual re
newal of his stepmother; not by name, of
course, but in such a way as to make the object
of his solicitude thoroughly cognizant ot his
It bad one happy result there was never a

TEE FUTURE OP PDEL GAS.
Interesting Statements by n Gentleman Fn.
miliar With the Subject.
From a paper on "Fuel Gas." read by Mr.
John Young before tbe American Gas Light
Association, and published In Light, Heat ana
Power, the following extracts are taken:
Iffnelgasls to be the fuel of the future, atten
tion must be turned to devising means first to se
cure perfect combustion of tbe fuel, and then to I
utilize the developed beat to the utmost extent for
heating the inside ot our houses, where it Is
wanted, instead of sending from 80 to 90 per cent
oi theheat np the chimney to heat tbe atmosphere
outside where It is not wanted. In this direction
I think lies the solution-"of the fuel gas problem.
Tbe price at which a fuel gas of practical value
can be manufactured and sold is pretty well de
termined, and under no circumstances, so far as I
can see, can It be sold cheap enough to displace coal
if used in our present appliances. That it is possi
ble to greatly Improve on our present methods
and attain much nearer the theoretical value of
the fuel, admits of very little doubt, but as yet
comparatively little has been done In that di
rection. We still adhere to our various forms of
stoves and open fireplaces, hot air furnaces that
ao not near me air, unless rue products or com
bustion are going into the chimney red hot, and
The rapid progress that has been made during
the last few years In reducing the cost of produc

rapidly growing popularity for street lighting and
for stores, hotels, theaters, railway stations and

time when illuminating gas companies must look
to some other means of utUizlng their manufact
uring and distributing plant than in the supply
of Illuminating gas. Would It not be well for gas
companies to spend some time and money In In

DEATHS OP A DAT.
Dr. William Herron.
Dr. William M. Herron, one of tbe oldest and
most prominent physicians of Allegheny, died
yesterday morning at his home, No. 16S Robinson
street. He was 67 years of age. Besides being de
voted to his practice as a physician, he spent con
siderable time In other branches of science. lie
was the son of William Herron, one of the pioneer
tanners of Allegheny county.
Tbe deceased was one of six children, and had a
brilliant career as student and practitioner. He
was an exact scientist and a successful Inventor,
although the general public knew little about his
remarkable attainments. One of his most Intimate
friends and co-laborers was Frof. John Brasbear.
Over a years ago he visited Europe and purchased
a fine telescope, which still remains In his library.
He developed a wonderful taste and adaptation
for astranowicalresearch. Ajnong his inventions
was a device In connection with electric lighting,
and a self-acting battery, by which contents of
Jars are kept In a constant state of agitation, thus
largely Increasing the strength and even the flow
of electric currents.
Pror. Brashear speaks of his old-time friend and
co-laborer in the following manner: "A wise
man and able counselor, a staunch friend, a noble
philanthropist and a man of remarkable genius,
are about the simplest terms of praise 1 can use In
connection with his name."
Dr. Herron leaves a widow, two sons and two
daughters. Of the sons, John is connected with
tbe Pennsylvania Company and "William is with
tho Chicago and Northwestern Ballway. One
daughter Is the wife of Chief Engineer Itodd, of
the Pennsylvania Company, aud tho other of

mortal imaginable in an Imported gown of rich
white satin, fashioned with a plain, smooth
fitting waist and a straight, full skirt, termina
ting in a demi-train. The design was copied
from a picture of her great grandmother, taken
on tbe latter's wedding day. White gloves,
slippers and veil completed the costume, while
an immense bouqnet of white chrysanthemums
gave the finishing touch.

brido was the maid of hqnor, a bright brunette,
and a cousin of the bride. She was arrayed in
a Parisian gown of crepe de chene in spotless
white, fashioned in tbe Empire style. White
slippers and gloves and a bunch of chrysanthe
mums were the accessories ot the toilet The
maids were all in similar attire of white crepe
de chene and carried chrysanthemums in differ
ent colors. The gentlemen were in the usual
attire. After tbe ceremony at the church the
company repaired to the future nome of the
happy couple, 14 o. 36 McPherson street, Boule
vard place, which had been transformed into a
bower of chrysanthemums. The mantels were
banked in distinct colors, pink, white, yellow
and red. The railing of tbe stairway leading
to tho nppcr floor where the presents were dis
played was handsomely trimmed with
green and clusters ot the prevailing
flowers tied with ribbons. The mu
sicians were placed just ontside the
rcceDtion hall, a portion of the porch having
been Inclosed for the occasion. Mr. and Mrs.
Vandergrift filled the position of host
and hostess in a charming manner, and, com
bined with the delightful musio furnished by

ried by the maids of honor was securely fast
ened a nanasome lace pin, tne gilt oi tne

Preparations for tbe World's Fair to be
Fashed With All 6peed.
Chicago, October 29. The Committee on
National Agitation to-day recommended to tbe
.Executive Committee the adoption of the fol
lowing resolutions: "
Whereas, The proposed World's Exposition
of 1892 is designed to be on a more extensive
scale than that of any former World's Fair, and
there Is more time intervening for dne prepara
tion than that consumed In the Instance or any
such prior exposition; and the ablest architects
and experienced judges In such undertakings
declare that in view or Inevitable success, for in
stance, as in procuring the required site, steel
ana other materials for work, in the erection of
great edifices, and in view also or the years of
notice needed for many foreign exhibitors, and in
view generally or the stupendous character or
the protected undertaking, Immediate action is
absolutely essential to its successful execution,
some declaring tbe time Is much too short: and
Whereas, Chicago was the first city to assert, as
she did several, year ago, the claims in the na
tion's lnteiest to the Columbus fair, and was also
first actively in thi field to raise the needed funds,
and whereas, thevast majority of the press of the
country recognize the right in turn, as well as tbe
wisdom of holding the next exposition lnthe in
terior, and the almost unanimous action of City
Councils, Board or Trade and other commercial
bodies of the West and South, Indicating an irre
sistible movement of public sentiment in favor of
such holding in the greatest Inland city of tbe
continent, because other central location and
convenience to the great body of the people, be
cause of the transportation facilities by land and
water, because of her Inviting summer climate,
and because, as a distinguished New York Jour
nalist frankly admits, Chicago is a miracle among
cities, and could certainly accommodate and con
duct a World's Fair with the utmost liberality,
skill and success: and ....
Whereas, In support or Chicago as the nation's
choice, a sufficient number of Congressmen have
already avowed openly their readiness to vote tor
Congressional recognition, thus relieving the en-
terprlse rrom tho degrading necessity of undue
lobbying, and avoiding what would be worse po
litical or sectional complications; and t
v nereas. xae issue is narrowea nown 10 succt9
or rallure, depending to a very large extent upon
instant action, to render the enterprise worthy or
the great occasion, and thus to reflect credit,
rather than discredit upon tbe nation; therefore,
Kesolved, That the people are entitled to their
choice of location for the World's Fair of 1892, and
the men and worn en of Chicago, gratefully accept
ing tbe general declaration of that choice aud
confidently reiving on the promised Congres
sional recognition, now unite In requesting tbe
Incorporators of the World's Exposition or 1832 to
complete their organization, and to proceed at
once to determine upon and carry Into execution
plans for the projected exposition.
The resolutions were presented to the Ex
ecutive Committee in session and were unani

Matrimonial Mishaps Cause Bad Blood.
August Heide, sausage maker, Mrs.Heide
and five small Heides came fromPhiladelphla
to New York four years ago. They took rooms
in a tenement house next to the quarters of
David Slmpkina, an aged G. A. R. veteran.
Simpkins soon fell inlove with Mrs. Heide, and
showed it Mrs. Heide liked Simpkins, and
showed it too. Heide made a great row about
their intimacy, and threatened to sue for a di
vorce. As he was rather 'slow to begin pro
ceedings, Simpkins and Mrs. Heide got mar
ried, in the hope of hurrying him un. Then
Heide got obstinate and refused to be divorced.
atalL So Mrs. Heide stepped across the hall
to Simpkins apartment and assumed the name
of Mrs. Simpkins. After two years Simpkiaa
and the former Mrs. Heide fell out and the
woman returned to her old quarters, across the

A Nose Hade to Order.
Mrs. E. Hoffman, of Brooklyn, lost her nose
by disease ten years ago. She had several doc
tors try their luck at replacing it, but they all
failed. Then she bought a rubber nose, which
was kept in place by a- complicated lot of
springs and strings. A few days ago 'she' got
tired of this rubber nose, and asked a promi
nent Williamsburg surgeon to give her a better
one. He did it thus: He raised the suakea'
skin that once covered the woman's nose, and
divided Jt lengthwise. From a live chicken tbe
surgeon removed the. breast ibone.leavlBr--i
the tender cartilaginous filament t and perloa
tens. These, latter ha sewed to tea naked
flesh of the nose, and over the boaebedrewa
portion of the periosteum cut from, tbe tore
head ot the woman- The surgeon is confident
that this new nose will be an organic part of
MrsHoffman at the end of two months. As it
is now, Mrs. Hoffman's chicken-breast nese,
though a trifle large andRoman.ls far from
ugly. Sh e says it is far more comfortable than
a rubber nose or no nose at all.
