iffs on Iron and Steel
INCREASED 12 PEE CENT.
Manufacturers Say the Trade Can't
. Stand the Advance.
EA1LKOADS DEMAND THEIR6HAEE
Railroad freight rates on iron and steel
were poshed up another notch yesterday.
In consequence there is considerable agita
tion among the manufacturers who are di
rectly affected. The advance is from 10 to
12 per cent over the present rates, and the
new tariffs will take effect November 18.
In accordance with instrnctions received
from the Joint committee of the Central
Traffic and Trunk Line Assoctations, a
meeting was held yesterday afternoon by
the Pittsburg Committee in the private
office of the Lake Shore road. Every local
road wa represented. After considerable
discussion on the matter the rates were ad
vanced to the following figures lrom Pitts
burg: New York, from 15 and 18 to 18 and 21 cents;
Boston, from 18 and 21 to SI and 24 cents;
Philadelphia, 13 and 16 to 16 and 18 cents; Buf
falo, lrom 9 and 8 cents to 13 and 9 ccnts;Cleve
land, from 9 and 8 cents to 13 and 9 cents: In
dianapolis, from 15 and 13 to 18 and 15 cents;
Peoria, 111., from a) and 17 to 23 and 20 cents;
Toledo, from 11 and 10 to 16 nd 14; East St.
Louis, from 2 and 18 to 25 and 22 rents; Cin
cinnati, from 15 and 22 to 17 and 15 cents; Chi
cago, from 17 and 15 to 20 and 1K cents.
As will be seen, the advance applies on
both east and west-bonnd shipments, and
all immediate points will be increased in
the same proportion.
CHASING THE OTHEB ADVANCE.
This is following close upon the heels of
the advance of about 10 per cent which was
made about two months aco. On "Wednes
day The Dispatch published an item to
the effect that there was a reported move
ment on foot to advance the rates. A num
ber of railroad officials were seen belorc the
item was published, and they all denied
that there was any intention to increase the
present tariff. A number of manufacturers
were also, interviewed. They stated that
they did not think the advance would take
place, as the condition of the iron market
did not warrant any further increase.
In regard to the advance made yesterday,
a number of large iron shippers were asked
for an expression of opinion about it. Mr.
A. M. Byers, of Byers & Co., wrought iron
and tube manufacturers, ssaid.
"The rates were advanced about one
month ago, and I cannot understand the
necessity of increasing the burden on the
iron manufacturers. The railroad officials
think that this .supposed boom in the iron
business justifies them inad vaucing the iron
and steel rates. There is no general boom
in the iron business. The prices of raw
material have been advanced from below the
cost of production. It was advanced to
enable the manufacturers to make a slight
profit. Finished iron has not advanced as
much as freight rates. The service of the
railroad companies is wonderfully poor.
SHIPPERS iOSING MONET.
"The iron manufacturers and large ship
pers ol this city are losing money for the
want of better service. The delivery of
cars by the railroad.companies is the weak
est apology I ever experienced. The officials
first said they did not have the cars. It
now develops that they have not the power
to move what cars they possess. There is
certainly no reason for the advance. The
blight increase on iron does not justify it"
Harry Holdane, freight agent of the Na
tional Tube Works at McKcesport. said:
"It is certainly a mistake to advance the
rates now as it has been bat a tew weeks
since the last increase went into effect.
Every winter the rates are advanced, but
this year it came sooner than expected.
The railroad companies think there is a
general boom in the iron business, and want
some of the pie. This supposition is not
correct. The prices on pipe have not been
advanced by the manufacturers within the
past 60 days, and there is no reason why the
freights on the same material should be
At the office of Jones &Laughlin it was
stated that Mr. Jones was out of the citv.
In reply to the inquiry, his representative
"Suppose the railroads have advanced the
rates, what difference does it make ? There
is no use kicking, as it will not alter the
case. All the dissatisfied talk of iron manu
facturers that could be published -for the
next month would have no eflect on the
matter, "When the railroads want to ad
vance the rates they do so, and we have-to
stand it. They do not care whether we like
it or not It is customary to push up the
rates when navigation closes for the winter,
hut I think the change is coming a little
too early this year."
AN OPPOSITE VIEW.
Another manufacturer, who has a large
plant on the Southside and who asked that
his name be withheld, took the opposite view
of the matter, and said the railroad com
panies should have advanced the rates some
tine ago. He said: "Only a year ago the
railroad business became badly crippled on
account of the different roads fighting about
rates. Thelroifbusiness was then in a poor
condition and every road tried to get what
little business there was. The several ad
vances that have been made lately brings
the rates np to a figure that will allow a
small margin of profit for the shareholders.
Now is a good time to make the advance.
Cars are scarce and there will not be any
kicking done. I am glad to see the railroad
officials awaken to the Tact that it is time
the owners of the roads made up some of the
money they lost when the business went to
One of the railroad officials who was pres
ent at the meeting yesterday said: "Two
years ago when the iron business was atta
low ebb and the manufacturers were com
plaining of losing money we reduced the
freight rates at their request "We made a
reduction of 20 per cent and foliowed it
shortly afterward with a reduction of-20 per
cent more. -Then we advanced them 20 per
cent, and the action of to-day places the
rates to where they were prior to the reduc
tion oi two years ago. In the meantime the
rates have been sliding np and dawn, but
were never restored until now. We nave
discontinued the use of the special rate on
iron and steel articles and placed the, latter in
fourth and fifth classes. I suppose the iron
manufacturers will rise np add howl about
extortion. They do this generally and we
nave become used to it They do not re
member the fact that the railroad companies
buy 40 per cent of the iron made in this
country and pay the highest prices for it"
The Chicago, Bock Island and Pacific
road announces a reduction in rates on rail
road materials to Denver and Colorado
points. The rates are good for 30 days.
HAIS AGAIN DENIES IT.
He Says That He Did Not Misapply Any of
the Church' Foods.
Bev. I. N. Hays, of the Central Presby
terian Church, of Allegheny, was visited
at his residence last evening by a Dispatch
reporter, and questioned in regard to the
rumored misapplication of funds by the
trustees. Dr. Hays said:
"It is all bosh aoout any misapplication
of funds. The members oi the congregation
have, 'and always have had, a lull knowl
edge of all financial transactions oh the part
of the trustees. As to members -of the con
gregation promising money for. the support
of the church and then refusing to par, I
have no knowledge of any individual in
stance of such defection. I do not see why
inch reports are published, as they are un
true and do great damage. The true story
has been published in The Dispatch."

Arenas People Protest.
Allegheny Common Council 'he'lda special
meeting last night President Hunter was
absent when the body came to order and Mr.
Dahlinger was called to the chair. The
first business taken np was the report of the
City Property Committee, reporting the
failure to purchase the site for the electric
power house at Irwin avenue and Oak alley
for $7,000. and recommending that1 another
site on Irwin avenue be purchased for
On motion of Mr. Parke Mr. Charles "W.
Eobb was given the privilege tf speaking on
the resolution. He said that if the plant was
located where proposed it brings it close to
the most valuable property north ot the
park. He had been assured that there
would be no noise atad no smoke, and that
everything would be lovely for the resi
dents. He could not say that the lot, 65x
112, would not be equal to the growing de
mands of the city for five years. He did
object to having a plant with its noise and
dirt put alongside of the most valuable and
bighlv taxed property in the city. He was
sure that suitable property could be bought
for much less money, and he offered his
services to find snch a site.
B. H. Boggs was also opposed! to it He
spoke of how the old stockyards bad kept
the progress of the city back for years. The
stockyards are gone aud that section is
building up. To put the power house there
was to throw it back again. One mnn had
told him that he had an option on a lot or
two lots on Bnena Vista street, on which he
meant to build two good houses, and he was
waiting to see what Conncils did about this
plant If located on Irwin avenue he didn't
want the lots. Mr. Boggs had no personal
feeling, as he lives far enough away to es
cape the evils, but he thought the city
would suffer if the plant was pnt on Irwin
John H. Hampton said he had lived on
North avenue for years, and wanted to end
his life there. He spoke of the miseries the
people had suffered during the stock
yard days, and said they had hoped to have
peace now. He told the Councilmen that
the resolution they were considering was not
legally drawn, as it did not describe the
property under consideration. He asked
for careful consideration oi the matter, as
the action of Council would bind the city
Mr. Dahlinger announced Hint the resolu
tion had been drawn in the shape presented
to enable the committee to buy where they
pleased if they could not get the site con
templated. Mr. Snaman, of Select Council, Chairman
of the committee, was in the lobby and was
asked to speak on the matter. He gave a
history of the work of the committee. He
said that one of the men interested in the
property that the committee refused to take
when the price was raised, had boasted that
the plant could not now be located ou Irwin
avenue, and he thought they had. been
stirring up the neighborhood. One of these
persons had sent to him to-day and tried to
get the plant on the site first named. Mr.
Snaman's store was within 110 feet of the
light company's power honse and he has
never been disturbed except once when an
experiment was made with slack as luel.
He knew that the gentlemen who had pre
ceded him were honest in their objections,
but he thonght they were mistaken. Mr.
Bobb bad spoken of another site, and he
was reidy to favor it if it were suitable.
Mr. Knox said he favored action at once.
Mr. Hampton hnd spoken ot the Martin
street property owned by the city. There
were people livinc on that street and he
would like to know if it took more noise to
keep a man awake in a (5,000 than in a $50,
000 house. Mr. Stayton lavored the origi
nal resolutfon, and said if the committee
could get a better site they would have au
thority to purchase it Mr. Sol Trauerman,
who had owned the original site on Irwin
avenue, explained his side of the dispute
about the price, which the committee had
reported aahaving been raised. .Mr. Trauer
man explained the transaction, the .ground
having been owned by himself and another
person, and denied that there had been an
attempt to take advantage of the city. He
bad been in Allegheny long' enough, he
said, for the people to know that he- was
as good as his word.
Mr. Boggs said that Mr. Snaman was
wrong when he said that he came to oppose
the Irwin avenue site at -Mr. Trauerman's
request He didn't know that gentleman
had anything to do with it Mr. Hampton
made a similar statement Mr. Park with
drew his motion to refer, and Mr. Drum
urged reference. The resolution authorizing
the purchase of the site was then put on
passage. The vote was 25 ayes to 6 noes.
This was less than a legal majority, aud
resolution failed. Then the resolution was
sent to the committee for amendment
The report of the Finance Committee was
taken up, and an attempt was made to trans
act other business, but there was only a bare
quorum, and when Mr. Stemmler, of the
Sixth ward, slipped away, the discovery
was made that Council could do no business.

YEEI PLEASING ETENIN6 INSPECTION
A large and appreciative audience, com
posed of some of the best people of the sister
city, assembled in the elegant aud commo
dious hall of the new Allegheny High
School yesterday afternoon to listen to the
dedicatory exercises of that magnificent and
beautiful building. The large hall was
crowded to its utmost capacity, many per
sons having to stand in the aisles and ajpng
side the walls. The exercises, however,
were of such a character that those who had
to stand soon forgot their small discomfort
in a most thorough enjoyment of the ad
dresses and music.
The hall was embellished with cut flowers
and potted plants, the work having been
done by Superintendent of Parks William
Hamilton and Ludwig and Bichter. The
stairways and halls were similarly decorated
and presented an attractive andinviting an
pearance, furnishing somewhat of a fore-
THE GKANU NEW HIGn SCHOOL
taste of the good things in speeches and
music that were to follow.
AXL VEBT INTEBESTING.
The exercises were commenced with music
by the Allegheny Concert Orchestra, which
rendered the number, "Sounds of Joy," in
a most splendid manner. The liberal ap
plause which followed the rendition
was taken as an indication of joyfnl
feelings in the breasts ot the friends
of the High School. JJextthe anthem,
"All Te Nations," was followed-by 'a ferr
vent and touching prayer by Bev. J. W.
McMillan, D, D., after which the chorus
rendered, "O, Columbia ! We Hail Thee."
Just here the first and only hitch occurred
in the programme. James S.Young, Esq.,
President of the Board of Controllers, was
down for an address. When the time for
its delivery arrived Mr. Young was not on
hand. The gentleman making the an
nouncements appologized for Mr. Young in
a few well-chosen words aud then introduced
E. B. Scandrett, Esq., Secretary of the
Board, and one of the hardest workers for
the success of the school.
SECRETARY SCANDRETT'S ADDBESS.
Mr. Scandrett gave au interesting his
torical sketch of the High School, and o(
the trials and tribulations through which
its supporters bad to pass before the present
magnificent building was commenced. Mr.
Scandrett spoke of the opposition against
the High School and of its final overthrow,
aud likened its promoters and adherents to
heroes, who could manfully stand out for
success in spite of all adverse circumstances.
As he told of one achievement after another,
the applause was long and loud. When he
.finished his address it was easily seen that
the audience was highly pleased with the
grit and determination displayed by him
self and his associates in their effort to give
Allegheny a High School worthy of her im
portance as a city.
James S. Yonng, Esq., the missing Presi
dent of the Board of Controllers, now came
upon the platform, and was greeted with
loud applause. He praised the building and
the course of study marked out, and said
that the object of the High School would be
to fit the pupils lor the active business of
life; also that it was designed to create a
taste for literature in its pupils. In this
connection he mentioned the Carnegie Li
brary, and said that the High School and
library together should create an intelligent
class of citizens. At present it is intended
to teach but three branches the commer
cial, the normaland the academical. In time
it was intended to add
TECHNICAL AND MANtTAI. TRAINING
to the course of instruction. Arter Mr.
Young had ended his address, the High
School class rendered "Ocean Mush;," and
Bev. Jas. D. Moffat. D. D., President of the
Washington and Jefferson College, deliv
ered an address on "Higher Education."
Dr. Moffat rejoiced with the citizens of
Allegheny in the completion of the pretty
building. He hoped that the time would
come when Americans could boast of being
the most intelligent and best educated peo
ple in the world. He said that the objection
to high schools chiefly arose from the mis
taken notion that they were different from
common schools, but that, in time, the pub-
lie woald learn the truth, and wonld give
all such schools enthusiastic support. He
wished that every county seat in thecountry
had just such a building as the one in which
he was speaking, and that then the people
would be noted for something more than our
great Republican or Democratic majorities.
All through his remarks Dr. Moffat was ap
plauded most liberally.
The chorus then sang "Hunter's Horn,"
after which the genial Henry Houck,
Deputy State Superintendent of Public
Schools, mado astirringaddress, lauding the
cause Of education in unmeasured terms.
ProfC Houck also managed to keep the
audience convulsed with laughter at his
witty sallies, and secured au encore After
the rendition oi the next musical number,
"Who Was George Washington?" Superin
tendent Luckey made an impromptu ad
dress, and the chorus sang the anthem
"Thou Wilt Keep Him," and the benedic
tion was pronounced by Bev. J. W. With
erspoon. THE PEDAGOGUES PRESENT.
The platform was occupied by many per
sons prominent in educational circles.
Among them were Superintendent George
J. Luckey, Dr. J. E. Morrow, Principal of
the Slippery Bock Normal School, Captain
H. M. Dunlap, Edward Gregg, Prof.
McClelland, of the Western Theological
Semlnarr. Prof. flneer. of the Pittsburc

As the audience passed -out many favora
ble comments on the building were heard,
and the general verdict is, that Allegheny
at last has a High School, of which she can
bo proud. About a month or more ago a
full description of the new buildinn ap
peared in the columns of The Dispatch.
In the evening a, public reception was
held, and the building thrown open for the
inspection of the citizens. Large crowds
availed themselves of the opportunity to in
spect the interior with its fine furnishings,
and be regaled with the sweet strains pro
duced by the Allegheny Concert Orchestra,
which was stationed at the head of the
grand stairway on the third floor.

PORTEE SECURES A NEW YORK WITNESS
Alderman Porter waived a hearing before
'Squire Hyndman, yesterday, for a court
trial. The hearing in the case of Thomas
Packer, constable of the Fifteenth ward,
Lige Shepard, deputy constable ot the same
ward, and ex-Constable Daley will take
place to-day at 3 o'clock before Alderman
Hyndman, of East Liberty. Mr. Packer
was interviewed at Alderman Porter's office
last night by a Dispatch reporter. He
' "I never made an information at Alder
man Porter's office, except one disorderly
conduct case. I was not connected with the
detective agency which had its headquarters
at our office. Any informations made by
the detectives of the Porter agency it is
possible that I may have served the war
rants, and arrested the guilty parties. This
part of the business came directly within
my province because I was constable for
Alderman Porter. When the warrants
were handed over to me, it is possible that
I may have given them to one of the deputy
constables, and in this way we have all got
mixed up in the conspiracy cases.
"I am in total darkness as to the details
of the indictment against me. The only
statement on the writ was conspiracy. It is
peculiar lor the plaintiff to make an infor
mation against me, and have me arrested.
There is not a thread of evidence which can
in any way connect me with the agency, or

have been in the office since my election will
be on hand to-day to corroborate my testi

malfeasance in office. How they are going
to prove the allegation is a mystery to me.
The whole business is trumped up. . Tbey
think that bv arresting us we will 'squeal,'

"A statement has been floating about that
it was my intention to waive a hearing, and
that my bondsman had asked me to release
him from the obligation and that we
quarreled because of his action. The cause
of my changing my bail is that I had askea
Mr. Casper Bauersmith to remain on my
bond for a hearing. When I waived a hear
ing that released the gentleman from his
responsibility, and I sought a different
bondsman for a court trial. It is reported
that Mr. Bauersmith was interviewed yes

Mr. Schriver, an old resident of the ward,

times for illegal liquor selling. I have

ing read in the Sun of to-day's issne your pro
test against any rebel regiment erecting any
monument on the battlefield of Gettysburg, ft
sent such a glow of pride throngh me
to know that there still lived men who
spent many hours on that memorable
field, who think as X do, that the soli of Gettys
burg is too sacred to be polluted by monu
ments erected OTer traitori. On an excursion
to that field recently my blood boiled to see the
arrangements then being made for its erection.
I glory in yonr boldness m making that pro
test, and I pray God yonr Honorable Governor
will forbid in the future the planting of monu
ments to traitors beside the hallowed graves of
our flag's defenders. Hoping you will do me
the honor to read this to the post, and say to its
members, though unknown. I hate treason and
have a true love for the flag and its defenders.
Mr. Parkham, the postoffice inspector,
who is making the investigation for a suit
able site for the Allegheny postoffice, said
last night that nothing further had been
done in the negotiations for the Hatbison
building, and the consideration of the mat
ter was wholly in the hands of the depart
ment. Struck Him With an Ax.
John Watterman preferred a charge
against George Waite, before Alderman
Foley, or Wood's Bun, yesterday, alleging
that the defendant struct him with an ax
on his leg.

Chancellor. deff," ofTfce Western "Uni
versity, last night delivered an instraeUve
lecture ia tfctf Saitafield Street V. X.
Church, telliag what he kaew about the
moon. He lilastrMe his talk fcyaseaasef
drawings representing the, relative pesitfoB
of the sun, eartijtaoan and stars'at varios
times. He explsiBed the iBeeVt practical
uses to sailors and explained la
a fassiliar way1 how astronomers ob
tain knowledge "of fair liana's ,
composition, etc, making his hearers wish
they eould se the three-sevenths of her'
person she persistently hides from as and
has hidden since the day she, in blblieo
astronomlcal parlance, was set to rule, the
night Dr. GofTsets even a higher value
on the moon than did the TrlifimaH who
prized her because she gave light at sight,
when it was needed.
At the close of the- lecture. Bev. Loeka
tried to indnce the audience to ask the
lecturer questions, hat a hs could -sot
succeed he asked them himself and drew
from him the admission that he didn't ex
pect in his life time to know much not
already discovered. He also intimated
that he wasn't crying like a child lor the
moon, as he recognised the futility of such
sorrow. Mr. Locke then asked Dr. Got to
explain the use of the tides,, and he replied
that in addition to being of use to sailora to
enable them, to get over shoal water, the
agitation of the. ocean thereby jerved to
sweeten it and keep the earth healthy. In
addition to being a nice thing to have
around and a comfort and: an in
spiration to lovers, the moon serves
as a sort of balance of power, and though
she may not be oi the industrial use to
which we expect to put the sun some day, ,
when we harness him to do the work that
coal, electricity and-Steam do now lor us.
yet we should miss her chaste company and
feel lonesome if we realized that the asaa ia
the moonvrere not keeping guard as we
slept. It is discouraging, however, to- oar
aspirations alter astronomical acquaintance
to feel onr inability to discover what is
going on on the other side of our .nearest
celestial neighbor. While wemaybelievethat
the man in the moon, and the woman, too,
for that matter, have been preserved ia iee
from a time to whjeh. even the memory ot
prehistoric man runneth not contrary, yet
it would be a comfort to know, you know,
something d their history, political ana
theological opinions, views of family gov
ernment, etc It is discomforting to feel
that we must Wait until this mortality hath
put on immortality before we can hope to he
enlightened much' farther than at present.
Were the inhabitants of the moon in their
day and generation animated with the same
aspirations, hopes add fears that move those
of the earth? While we may I eel that some
bow or other our ignorance in this respect is
all for the best, yet we cannot help feeling
that we wouldTijke to know somethingabout
our congealed neighbors. Dr. Goff did not
hold out any hope that' people who cannot
get to the North Pole will ever succeed ia
