THE DISIBICT ATTORNEYSHIP.
About the only local contest to be decided
next Tuesday, in -which the public take any
interest, is that for the District Attorney
ship. The gathering signs make so reason
ably clear how this is likely to result that,
in the minds of most observers, it is merely
the question of the size of the majority
rather than of the recipient Judging by
the past course of Toters in this county
where the direct administration of the
courts is concerned, and by individual ex
pressions freely made, there is scarcely any
room to doubt the election of Johnston, the
Democratic nominee, by a very decided
As was stated in these columns at the
time of his nomination, Hr. Johnston is a
capable, active and popular man, well
thought of by the bar and by the public.
His opponent, Mr. Bowand, on the other
hand, is handicapped by such a record as a
public officer in the Clerkship of the Courts,
nod confronted by so many special antagon
isms growing out of the litigation connected
therewith, that the prospects are altogether
of a rapid dissolving at the polls, of the rela
tively small "off year" Bepublican major
ity. The single claim, so far advanced on
Bowand's behalf, is his undoubtedly excel
lent record as a soldier. But that was recog
nized and rewarded by his previous election
to the Clerkship; and the results of his ad
ministration of that office weresoutterly un
desirable as to now furnish not only the
strongest argument against his present can
didacybut one that should be entirely
With this disqualification on record, and
-with the justly pronounced feeling on the
subject, it is not worth while going into the
question of the relative abilities of
Johnston and Bowand as lawyers. In that
lespect, not less than in the other, the ad
vantages are wholly with the Democratic
nominee, whose entire ability to discharge
effectually the duties of the office is un
doubted. The contest, nnder the circumstances,
promises to be rather ore-sided. If the
usual Democratic vote is cast for Johnston,
it is fairly certain that more than enough
Bepublicans will back it up to make his
calling and election sure. The question of
choice, under the circumstances of the con
test, does sot call for serious argument
A CHECK TO ENTHUSIASM.
The stern hand of the police is to be laid
upon the hotel hustlers at the Union depot
who seize upon unwary travelers and bear
them off to houses of entertainment by force
and arms. If the hotel drummers collar the
way farers, the police will collar the drum
mers, and the fare which the latter receive
at the hands of the city will not be much
better than that which their victims obtain.
This may seem a harsh interference with an
enthusiastic, though unnecessary, industry;
but upon examination it proves to be a
strict realization ot the Mikado's great idea
of making the punishment fit the crime.
With this rule enforced the hotel runners
can find a vent for the enthusiasm within
the portals of their houses of entertainment,
and the traveler can reach the business cen
ter of Pittsburg without fear of bodily ab
duction. AN TJHPBOVIDED PBECATJTIOK.
The responsibility for the accident to the
limited express on the Ft Wayne road yes
terday, which cost one life and was a very
narrow escape from wholesale slaughter,
seems a matter of dispute. It is not the
province of The Dispatch to settle the
disputed point; but it is pertinent to poi-t
out that the accident is of a sort that the
block system in use on the main line of the
Pennsylvania Bailroad -would have pre
vented. The degree of safety secured by
this device on the line to the east of Pitts
burg has often been referred to in these col
umns. It is no more than just to point out
that the extension of the same precautions
to the western lines operated by the Penn
sylvania Company would have prevented
yesterday's collision. Of course there are a
large number of excuses lor the absence of
the block system; but the fact, as stated,
seems to locate an ultimate responsibility
pretty high up.
IBB CLAIMS OP THE CAPITAL.
In another column is an earnest but well
tempered criticism of Pittsburg's Chamber
of Commerce lor favoring Washington for
the World's Fair, and The Dispatch for

$ r" however, it amounts to no more than this.
viz: that Chicago has raised a $5,000,000
'" subscription and has hotel accommodations,
while Washington will have to rely upon
the Government, and cannot now give roof-
" shelter even to those who attend inaugura-
-. lions. There is, it is true, a third objection
raised by our correspondent to the effect
that Washington is not a "typical" Ameri
can city; but that depends so entirely upon
the point from which it is viewed as to
need no serious consideration. The United
States is a big country, with many and strik
ing differences in the characteristics of dif
ferent communities, and it would be uncom
monly hard to find one place typical ot all.
Washington is politically the representative
i city of the land; it is also the most beautiful

J&A'sciive and clamorous, but New Yorkers
jfcave set their minds on the fair jnstas
(earnestly. We near a great deal of "sub
scriptions" from both places, but the amount
cney actually put up is very small at
either place, compared with the promises.
That there is a large probability of Congress
being asked for an appropnatioo to help
out will scarcely be disputed. If Congres
sional recognition and assistance are sought
or extended, why should the capital of the
nation be overlooked? If the World's Pair
is to be a national event, why not have it at
the nation's capital, directly under Govern
ment auspices? Even as to the money part,
the people of "Washington nave made a really
more substantial and business-like proposal
than either of the bigger cities. They ask
the Government to guarantee 510,000,000 of
bonds for the District, the same to be met
by taxes on the property of the District If
there are no legal impediments, this would
procure money very quickly, and if there
was a deficiency in the proceeds of the Ex
position the charge would fall-but lightly
on the property and people benefited. As
to accommodations for the public, who
doubts that American enterprise would
swiftly aud abundantly supply them? In
respect to the site, also, Washington offers
the most handsome and commodious grounds
Of course both Chicago and New York
are bigger cities. They can show ten times
more of the activities of commerce in actual
motion than Washington. But all foreign
ers who come to the Exposition will see
New York anyhow, and most of them will
doubtless see Chicago. At Washington
they will see besides the seat of government
of the country, the magnificent public
buildings, beautiful grounds, historical me
mentoes and many other objects of interna
tional interest which cannot be seen else
where. In short, Washington has already
the material for an exposition in itself which
could not fail to be an attractive supplement
to the Fair. And considering everything it
is probable that as great, if not indeed a
greater, number of citzens of the United
States would visit Washington to see the
exposition than would go to Chicago for
All the noise so far has been made for
New York or Chicago. But it has been
made by the localities directly interested.
Though little has been done for Washington
we incline to believe that the longer the
matter is canvassed the more strongly will
the drift set toward the national capital.
TWO BETUBNING HEROES.
The statement of Dr. Schweinfurth that
letters have been received from Emin
Pasha which justify the expectation that
Emin and Henry M. Stanley will soon ar
rive at the Zanzibar coast, practically sets
at rest all donbts as to the final success of
Stanley's last, and one of his greatest,
achievements. The explorer's successful
march from the upper Congo to the equa
torial province, his return to his starting
point, and the second march to the Eastern
coast, are only surpassed in determina
tion, difficulty and great results by his ex
ploration in a reverse direction from the
Eastern coast ending with the discovery and
descent of the then unknown Congo.
There is another feature of the return of
Stanley from the heart of Africa, in the
fact that he is accompanied by Emin, which
gives the matter an especial interest The
association and companionship of the dar
ing and successful explorer, with the pa
tient Governor of the Equatorial Province,
who upheld the standard of civilization in
the center of Africa for years after Gordon
lost his life at Khartoum, furnishes a strik
ing parallel to Stanley's first association
with and aid to Dr. Livingstone. As
Stanley's earliest achievement in Africa
was the searching out and relief of the ex
plorer who had spent his life in the Dark
Continent, there is a peculiar and striking
fitness in the termination of his wonderful
African career by the relief and rescue of
another man who is the last to abandon his
post at the head of the Nile.
There are hardly two living men who can
command a more world-wide and disinter
ested admiration than Stanley and Emin
when they return. Their fame has been
well-earned, and Europe and America will
unite in doing them honor.
THE DAK0TAS HEED.
The latest intelligence, to the effect that
the number of people left destitute and in
danger of starving by the failure of crops in
North and South Dakotas is in the vicinity
of 100,000, shows the necessity of prompt
measures to prevent the most terrible suffer
ing. It seems strange that in a -year when
the general condition is that of abundance,
so many people in the grain-raising States
can be suffering for the lack of food; but the
reports leave little doubt, and the fact may
be taken as an indication of the vast extent
of the grain raising territory, so that one
section may suffer from calamity in the
midst of general abundance.
Of course the philanthropic people of the
nation should be prompt to respond to the
call for aid. These famine-stricken people
are the pioneers of industry, the leaders in
the work of production which creates the
national wealth. If aided to tide over their
present necessity they will in the fnture fur
nish large additions to the general prosper
ity, and swell the total that is the founda
tion of all our wealth. But beyond that,
the need of sufiering humanity has never
been neglected in this country. Whatever
our faults, we will not let people starve to
death in our land, so long as the rest of the
country has a surplus. Now that the emer
gency is known the country will contribute
abundantly to the need of the Dakota suf
ferers. BUSINESS TBIPS FOB MONAECHS.
The anxiety of the Czar, over the visit of
the Emperor of Germany to Constantinople,
which has resulted in arranging for a visit
of his own next spring, does not look very
much as if the late visit of the imperial
majesties at Berlin had left a serene confi
dence in the Muscovite mind as to the utter
inocuousness of the German intentions.
Alexander cannot trust William to 'confine
himself to seeing the elephant at the Golden
Horn, or viewing the Mussulman harems
from the outside, but must hasten to the
seat of the ancient Greek Empire himself
to make sure that no mischievous German
influence has been established.
It is much better for the crowned beads of
Europe to visit each others' capitals on
errands of this sort than to march there at
the head of armies to burn aud slaughter;
but it must be said that the king business is
approaching a rather undignified similarity
to the methods of the commercial travelers.
An enterprising drummer, who hears that a
rival is getting away the trade which he
considers his own in a certain district, does
not pack up his samples and start to the
scene of action more energetically than
Alexander and William. Whether the
European monarchs can discipline their
Ottoman customer as energetically as the
somewhat imperious Standard Oil agents
have done with merchants who have dealt
with obnoxious rivals, remains to he Seen;
but if so the Commander of the Faithful is
not likely to enjoy the presence of his Im
Whether the Emperors can be satisfied
with keeping a check on each other by
journeys and visits, or will have in the end
to fall to blows, is the question which keeps
Europe in a state of nervous irritation.
A EOYAL BEPOBTEB.
There was a line or two in the news cabled
from Europe yesterday which will be sure
to cause a flutter in the editorial dovecots of
New York, It is said that the Archduke
John Salvator, of Austria, who has resigned
from his high offices in that Empire for rea
sons highly creditable to himself, will very
soon join the staff of a New York paper.
The name of the fortunate journal is not
given. It may be that the pious Colonel
Elliott F. Shepard has secured His Boyal
Highness. The conductor of the only sport
ing and religious paper in the world is quite
equal to such a stroke of enterprise. Colonel
Shepard is just the man to know how much
a spicy account, of a church wedding written
in Austrian would be appreciated by the
erudite Fifth avenue readers of his paper.
Probably the Austrian prince is a good
judge of horseflesh, and Colonel Shepard
could make him horse reporter and
wedding editor with large hopes of
unique results. Or the Archduke John
might be given a seat iu the counting room
window, with a placard setting forth his
rank. A nice revenue might be made by
renting him out to the "Four Hundred" at
so much per night in the capacity of society
reporter. If Colonel Shepard has not se
cured the Archducal treasure he ought to
spare no pains or expense to do so.
But if Colonel Shepard has not and will
not employ the Austrian, the New York
Herald should make him an offer. An
editorial in Austrian now and again would
he a pleasant relief to the Herald's readers.
The claim of ownership of an alleged
$2,000,000 patent for the escape of gas from
natural gas mains, as reported in our local
columns, may result in the discovery that
the valuation of this patent is slightly in

which it was capitalized in the Philadelphia
Company. Still the patent is worth enongh

It was not my f ortuno to be taking the air on
that bright day last month In a neat donble
wagon behind a conple of glossy bay ponies,
when two yonng ladies of this city drove cheer

had come from a livery stable with a character

Suddenly, without the least warning, at a

supremacy, but the ponies lasted longest, and,

General Bllles Says the Pacific Coast Needs
Both for Defense.
Washington, October 30. In his annual
report to the War Department General Nelson
Miles, commanding the Pacific division, says
there are in the aggregate 0,000 troops occupy,
ing a territory, not including Alaska, of 775,380
square miles, with 1,400 miles ot seacoast 93
miles of Mexican and 199 miles of British Co
lumbia frontier. On the subject of desertions,
of which there were 405 during the year ended
August SI, 18S9, out of a force of 0,030 men.
General Miles recommends: That enlistment
be made for three years instead of five; that
the enlisted men asfar as possible be permitted
to select the divisions in which they shall
serve; that men found qualified after years'
service be commissioned second lieutenants,
and it there be no vacancies for them that
they receive honorable discharges; tbat the
three-battalion organization adopted in Europe
for the infantry be adopted by the United
States, giving promotion to over SO officers, and
that tor 15 years' continuous service in the
same tank an officer shall be promoted one
on tncsuDjectoi facme coast defenses ho says
it would require 673 modern guns and mortars
to pnt the coast in proper condition, the cost
of which would be over $30,000,000. Plants for
manufacturing the gun should be established
on the Pacific coast. To this end the General
recommends one appropriation of 3250000to
secure the titles to strategic points necessary
to be occupied for defense; another of SL000,
000 to establish a -plant for construction of
modern guns and ammunition, and a thlra ot
25,000,000, or as mnch as can be expended in four
j ears for providing guns and material required
on the coast This may seem like a large sum
but the General calls attention to the fact that
in the mint at San Francisco there He $21,000,
000 silver dollars alone, piled up as a tempta
tion to any third rate naval power to plunder

Chicago as the World's Fair Site Wash
Intton's Claims Coptldered.
To the Editor or The Dispatch:
There are some things- hard to understand,
and one of them is the hostility of Pittsburg's
Chamber of Commerce and of The Dispatch
to Chicago as the site of the World's Pair. It
is natural that New York should be the first
choice of Pittsburg; but now that New York,
by her apathy, is about out of the race, I was
surprised the other day to note that The Dis
patch now favors the city of Washington.
Between the two cities, Chicago and Washing
ton, as proper sites for the fair, X can see no
possible comparison. Chicago has all the ad
vantage; Washington all the disadvantage.
True, Washington is the capital of the country;
but irr America capitals go for nothing except
as places for political business. One may "g
to London to see tho Queen," but he need not
go to Washington to see the President He
can see one ot them up in Fremont O., and
another in a lawyer's office In New York. The
ciaim or Washington for the lair, simply be
cause it is tho national capital, is. to my mind,
a piece of monarchical mimicry.. The fact that
Washington Is the canltal of thn tottnn and
hence the seat of foreign legations, is an argu
ment against the city as a fair site, f or it is J ost
so far an un-American city.
I do not think that Americans, as a rule, are
at all proud of the pomposity of Washington
society; and to have foreign visitors impressed
with the idea that it is a type of American life
would be a gross injustice. Even New York is"
scarcely an American city, as I know from six
years residence there, mnch less Washington.
But from an intimate personal acquaintance
with Chicago, I believe it to be as near a per
fect type of an American city as our large
cities furnish. Place Pittsburg alongside of
New York, Washington and Chicago, and I can
tell you that Pittsburg and Chicago would
assimilate like two drops of water. I cannot
keep still when I see the claims of Chicago
quietly set aside by Pittsburg in the face of
her $5,000,000 subscription and her unparalleled
accommodations, in favor of a city which made
thousands of people sleep in the rain at a
merely ordinary event of a national celebra
tion, and which would throw the whole cost of
the fair upon the Government
Boom Pittsburg as a site for the fair, and I
am with you. .Next to Pittsburg, Chicago; but
Washington! erbsatsap. J. D.Hebeos.

To the Editor of The Dispatch:
I noticed in an evening paper on Monday
that the Health Committee is going to ask
councils to pass an ordinance to regulate the
disposal of garbage; that is, to compel me to
place my garbage out on the front sidewalk, so
that a company composed of the said Health
Committee (which, of course, will get the con
tract for removing it) can get it 1 do not know
how much it will cost to rather tin this ntnfr.

the same thing; I hope our Councilmen will

Not the First Priest There.
To the Editor of The Dispatch. 1
In your edition of to-day you publish, under
the caption "APriestatTarentum," an article
of news, which seems to convey the idea tbat
xuere never has been a priest at Tarentnm be
fore the advent of the recently appointed
pastor, Rev. L Otten, C. a Sf. St Peter's
Church, Tarentnm, was dedicated on the 9th
of October, 1887, with Bev. Father Alphonso
H.FarinI as pastor, by appointment ofBt
Rev. Bishop Phelan, at which dedication a re
porter published a very complimentary notice.
Under the able management ot Father Fannl,
the parish has become uno of the foremost of
the diocese, the reverend father being not only
an able administrator, but also a linguist ac
quainted with seven different languages. The
high testimonial paid to Rav. Fatner Otten is
eminently just, and Father Farini congratu
lates not only himself, but also the priest of
Tarentnm, that so able a successor has been
found in the person of Bev. Father Otten,
whose piety, learning and zeal are household
words wherever he Is Known- AdhehdUX.

A Street In Bad Condition.
To the Editor of The Dispatch:
In your issue of October 28 you call attention
to tn filthy condition of Bioomfleld. Please
do not overlook Butler street as it is filthy
from one end to the other. It has not been
washed for nearly two years. It has not been
cleaned but once, I think, inside 18 months;
then only cone over by a few decrepit old men
with scrapers. The Citizens' Traction Com
pany, every once in awhile, clean out their con
doit and deposit the filth on the street, and
sometimes do not remove it but leave it to be
carried here and there by the wagon travel, etc.
I don't think there is any reason to doubt that
the prevalence of typhoid and scarlet fevers,
diphtheria and other diseases is traceable to
the filthy condition of our streets. Will you
kindly call attention to this street and oblige

Two Yonng Folks In a Dilemma.
To thA Editor of The Dispatch:
A young lady who is under age wishes to get
married. Her father will not give his con
sent but her mother will, and says the girl
does not need her father's consent Now, who
is right father or mother T Can I get married
in Ohio without the consent of the parents T
Allegheny, October 30. 8. D.
If the father won't yield you will probably
have to wait But if your future mother-in-law
has the influence with the family adminis
tration tbat women usually have, there is still
hope for you. Ton cannot get married in Ohio
without a license, and presumably the consent
ot the parents is necessary to procure one In

time the German was so fuddled tbat he al

and to carry him off to Castle Garden again.
This morning they tried to smuggle him on
