ME SPEAK-EASY EYIL
.How These Tlaces of Illegal Liquor
' s v Selling Are Conducted.
Ithei thrive is mill districts.
located in Quiet Places Where
Can't Disturb Teem.
A EEPOKTER'S EXPERIENCE BELATED
Han is vso singularly organized that he
desires most that which is forbidden. His
first act pnt on record was an example of
this propensity. His ambition to overcome
difficulties incites him to the pursuit of the
dangerous and unlawful. It is this idio
syncratic quality which furnishes lucrative
support to the "speak-easy." A toper who
climbs over a back fence, goes down a dark
stairway, gropes through adamp cellar and
finds the open sesame to two or three locked
doors, counts the consequent dram a great
deal more toothsome and deligntful than if
he plucked it off an open bar.
The speak-easy is essentially a Sunday in
stitution. When every licensed saloon is
hermetically sealed it softly opens its noise
less door to the thirsty. The man who
drinks habitually does not feel well if he
misses one day in the seven. "Why does he
not buy his liquor on Saturday evening and
take it'home for Sunday consumption? The
rich man does, for the rich man has an ice
box and a way of ordering his own house
hold affairs. The mill man or the day la
borer or the clerk living at a boarding house
has no ice box, and if he carries a bottle
home either his spouse may throw it out of
the bac door, or the landlady may request
him, in dulcet tones, to locate" largely else
where. 2nok and then it even happens that
Pat or Johann or Antonio buys his bottle or
his Kez and carries it home on Saturday
evening. But. then, alas, he and a few of
his crony neighbors are too apt to make an
CDd of it before the Sabbath day dawns.
Then, after all, they resort to the speak-easy
before the day closes. The speak-easy is
therefore the resort of the poor man, who
finds himself without liquor on Sunday and
thinks he must have some.
MEN ABE CONTTYXAL.
Moreover, a man. unless he be a con
firmed drunkard, does not like to drink
alone. He wants others to drink with him;
he desires their jollity to meet his, and
must have an auditor or two as the object of
his maudlin conversation. The speak-easy
13 therefore the resort of the gregarious.
The illegal drinking resort has none but
evil features. The spirits sold are always
vile. The frequenter is not likely to be dis
criminating. The keeper looks upon him
self as a public benefactor. He is confer
ring a great favor upon the patron to fur
nish him with any sortof liquor on Snnday.
"Whisky is bought at from 80 cents to $1 50
per gallon, and it tastes like alcohol and
cayenne pepper. The more it burns his
throat the better the drinker considers it to
be. "Ah, that takes holt," he says, with
glistening eves and a broad smack of the
lips; "a fellow knows he's been drinkin'
The speak-easy makes many drunkards.
The keeper of a licensed house fears to sell
to an intoxicated man, lest it be brought
against him when the license court sits
again in solemn judgment Yet it is true
that many of the drunken men arrested on
Saturday night bought their liquor from
licensees. They bought it by the bottle or
keg, however, and drank it before they
reached home. "When a man becomes drunk
in a speak-easy on Sunday he is folded up
in a corner and left to snooze until nightfall.
The keeper does not wish to turn him out
as an advertisement by daylight.
"WHO ABE PROPRIETORS.
As a rule the proprietor of a speak-easy is
a loafer or a widow. The loafer was proba
bly a saloon keeper or a bartender before the
Brooks law cut him off) and he detests work.
He sells whisky because it has become his
second natnre to do so. He is possessed of
an unconquerable desire to dispense strong
drink."" The widow was. nine times out of
ten, the wife once of a saloon keeper or bar
tender who was cut off, not by Brooks, but
by the gentleman who rides the Tale horse.
She must get a living for herself and the
children and she knows no other way to
The police say that these people rarely re
form. When arrested they are often ready
to promise, on a stacir of Biblps as high as
the Court House tower, nevir to sell another
drop as lone as they live. The promise is
kept for a few weeks; and then again com
plaint comes to Inspector McAleese that the
incorrigible is at his old tricks. This is one
of the queer characteristics of a person who
has once acquired tne namt oi selling
liquor. It becomes an appetite, as incur
able as the habit of an onium eater. It is
like the thirst of a tiger which has once
tasted human blood. After that it is a man
eater until man slays it. Nevertheless the
fact is unaccountable cr rather incapable of
analysis and explanation.
In a majority of the instances, where the
police raid a speak-easy, the person selling
is found to be a woman. Not always, how
ever, is she a widow or the real proprietor.
The owner is often a man, who hides behind
his wife's apron. He reasons that his cus
tomers will be less likely to betray a woman
than a man.
THICK IN MILL DISTRICTS.
The information held by the police shows
that spcak-easies are the most numerous in
those parts or the city where the mills are lo
cated. The Southside swarms with them,
and they are well patronized. There are
many in the west end of that side of the
river where there are no licensed saloons.
Lawrenceville is beset with them, where
they are found in alleys and side streets.
Indeed, the Ninth, Tenth, Twelfth and Fif
teenth wards, from the Union Depot to the
cemetery, comprise that section of the citv
which is the hotbed of speak-easyism. The
greater number are on Spruce "and Mul
berry alleys. Again, many are located in
thatpart of the city called Soho. Here and
there, however, in all parts of the citv, the
speak-easy niav be found. It is just as
likely to exist in the shadow of a licensed
house as in a district where saloons have
. been prohibited. They take their seat even
under the nose of a police station. One of
the largest and best patronized in the city is
in a basement on Fourth avenue, in the
Krst ward. The visitor descends from the
sidewalk to a dark space under a stone stair
way. He knocks three times on a door, and
it soon opens cautiously. If the visitor is
known he enters a musty hall, where empty
beer boxes are heaped up. Turning aside
into a bare and dimly-lighted room, he
passes throngh another door into a large
rear apartment. The gas burns brightly,
there is talking and lauirhter. chairs are
plenty, and in the center of the room stands
a long table.
STUFF BOUGHT BY THE QUAET.
The visitor sits at the table, and if he
drinks beer, be gets a quart bottle for 25
cents. It is fresh and cold, and he may sit
as long as he likes. The sound of the voice
can scarcely reach the street from this base
ment apartment, andthere is little restraint
on talking or singing. It is not, in that
sense, a speak-easy, tor the keeper rarely
thinks it necessary to warn the boys to keep
quiet. There are often, on a Sunday morn
ing or evening, as many as a score of men in
Until a few weeks ago there was a speak
easy within a short distance of The Dis
PAICIt building on Diamond street Two
reporters entereJ there one Sunday morning
about 2 o'clock. Ibc long hallway was pitch
dark.' Stumbling over pieces of torn carpet,
the seekers found a door. Long rappings
at last were answered by footfalls within,
' and the door opened. The man who
opened the door could not be seen, for
the room was dark. "Who's there?" he
asked gruffly. "It's George; is that you,
Tommy?" one of the men answered. "Oh,
yes; come in, come in," and straightway the
"door opened wider. "Be careful now." the
,pi.otsaid; "don't run agin this bed." There
was.no lamp in this room, but by a faint
light coming through a doorway in an op
posite corner, a bed could be made out A
man lay upon it. snoring. His clothes and
boots were'on. "That's Jack, sleepin er
oAV the pilot explained. Who Jack was
the visitors did not ask. They were con
ducted across the first room, across a narrow
hall, into a small rear room, where John
Barleycorn held high carnival. The place
was lighted by a small oil lamp, which sat
upon a mantel. The lamp chimney was
black with soot, and the room was full of
tobacco smoke. A bottle of whisky and two
small glasses stood upon the mantel beside
the lamp, and the beer was in one corner.
There were only two old chairs, bnt the men
who were there, a dozen in number, satupon
beer boxes, or leaned against the wall. In
one corner two drunken men were propped
one against the other.
THEY BBAXK BY .TUBUS;
When more than two men desired to drink
whisky they had to take turns with the
glasses. No one had the temerity to ask for
water. Nearly all the occupants'of the room
were drunk, and there were many heated
arguments. The keeper was frequently
called upon to prevent a fight The news
paper men did not remain long. They
heard the door bolted Viciously behind
them, and they were glad to breathe the
pure air of tbe'nigbt
There are few speak-easies which have a
peculiar rap or a password. The keeper
knows the people in his neighborhood, and
admits only those whom he knows or who
are vouched for by an acquaintance. In
some ot them a man who is unmistakably a
workingmau can obtain admission whether
already known or not A few keepers,have
lookouts on Suuday, stationed at the near
street corners, to watch the police. If a
squad is seen coming the house is warned
and the visitors escape. Such escape is npt
difficult, as the illegal saloon is usually in
a locality where the houses are close and
there are many passages and crannies.
The work of eradicating the speak-easy is
hopeless. It takes time to locate them and
secure evidence against them. So slow is
this work, necessarily, that the speak-easies
increase more rapidly than they can be
raided by the police. Like mushrooms,
they spring up in a night Inspectors Mc
Aleese, Whitehouse and McKelvy are regu
larly hammering at them. Every Sunday
there are numerous raids, but every Sunday
there arc more places to be raided. "Under
these circumstances, the police are com
pelled to devote their attention to those
places which are frequented by the most
notorious characters, or which are the sub
ject of the greatest number of complaints
from the residents ot the neighborhood.
NEW U. P. CHUECH.
Rev. Hill, With a Small Following, Leaves
The nucleus for a new United Presby
terian Church has been formed, growing out
of the late disruption at the Minersville
Presbyterian Church. Services were held
yesterday at the Thirteenth ward school
house, mainly composed of dissentients from
the Minersville church. The congregation
at each ot the services, including the Bev.
Hill and his wife, did not reach over 20.
Prof. Natcher, oi the Western University,
Allegheny, preached the sermon. His re
marks were of a theological character. He
did not refer to the canse of the split, which
resulted in the formation of another U. P.
The trouble in the Minersville church
grew out of a majority of the congregation
asking the "Rev. Hill to resign from the
pastorate, they asserting that he was dicta
torial and overbearing in his manner
toward them. Before the Presbytery met the
members of the church held a congrega
tional meeting to take into consideration
Mr. Hill's resignation. The pastor was
present at the meeting, and vehemently
protested against the manner in which he
had been treated. He pleaded with great
pathos to be retained in his office, pointing
ont the great age to which he had attained,
and the long years he had assiduously
worked for the Christian cause. When the
Presbytery met the minority of the church
presented a petition to that body setting
forth the condition of matters in the church.
The Presbytery, after careful deliberation,
sustained the minority, and authorised
the congregation to accept the pastor's
resignation, stating that it was best for
the welfare ot the church. The result
was that Mr. Hill had to sever his connec
tion with the congregation. After this ac
tion on the part of his people, the late pas
tor went back to the Presbytery and asked
them to allow him to organize a new chnrch
on the lower side of Thirty-third street hill.
His reqnest was referred to a committee,
who reported to the Presbytery that it
would be injudicious, after "investigating
the matter, to acquiesce in Mr. Hill's prop
osition, because he had no financial back
ing, and the population of the ward did not
warrant them in taking such a step.
Upon the official notification of the Pres
bytery's action, Mr. Hill immediately sev
ered his connection with this body, joining
himself with about 20 members of the Mi
nersville church to the United Presby
terian body. An application was sent in to
the U. P. Synod asking them to organize a
chnrch in the same locality that the Presby
terians reiusea. J.ne application was favor
ably voted upon, and yesterday's service
was the result

A BUSINESS OUTLET.
Completing Slackwater to Morgan
town Will Help Pittsburg.
IRON ORE DEPOSITS ON THE CHEAT.
Opening Up a Trading Country Kich in
Minerals and Lire Stock.
BALTIMORE BEATEN IN THE SHUFFLE.
Now that the work of completing slack
water in the Monongahela, which was com
menced some 40 years ago, is about finished
to Morgantown, a Dispatch reporter had
a conversation with John W. Armstrong, a
West Virginian, who lately made a tour of
the country in and about Morgantown, and
the picture he paints of the future of that
section is at once encouraging to tbe people
who have so patiently waited these many
years to have facilities for trade with the
outside world. Amotig other things he
said : "The country is rich beyond de
scription in mineral and timber, and not
until now do the people leel that an oppor
tunity offers for putting upon the market
the finest ore, timber, coal and farm prod
ucts this section can produce.
"When do I think navigation will be
opened? Well that is a question the en
gineer in charge of the work will not answer,
and yon wouid hardly expect an answer
from me. But I was talking with Captain
Adam Jacobs, who has been steamboating
on the Monongahela for more than 20 years,
and I will answer your question with his
conversation. He said he had been very
deeply interested in the completion of Lock
No. 8, and watched the work very closely.
While he could get no definite date" from the
engineer in charge, he would stake his repu
tation as a judge of public improvements
tbat he would have the James G. Blaine at
the Morgantown wharf not later than
the 15th of November. Now, he said, the
lock is completed, the gates and all the ma
chinery are in place. The dredgeboat is at
work cleaning out the channel about the
pier and removing refnse accumulated in
the construction ot the work. So yon may
put it down as a certainty that I will carry
a large excursion to Morgantown not later
than the 15th inst
"Well, now, about the excursion. AH I
know is that he said there were hundreds of
people all along the river, and especially at
Brownsville, who are anxious for the "first
boat to go up, and they will be on board. Of
course there will be music It would not
be fitting to enter the staid old city of Mor
gantown with tbe first boat, and excursion
ists from every town along the river from
Pittsburg there, without brass bands, flying
flags, firing of cannon and other demonstra
tions of enthusiasm. What will the people
of Morgantown do?
ARRANGING FOB A BLOWOUT.
"Well, if you go you will witness genuine
enthusiasm on their part. Arrangements
have been made for some time to give the
boat and excursionists the grandest recep
tion imaginable. The town will be in holi
day attire; thousands of people will come to
the city in carriages, wagons, horseback, on
foot and any way to get there. Parades,
speeches, a barbecue, with natural gas as
the fuel for roasting purposes: drills by the
cadets, and in fact, the events of the day
will follow one another so close that one will
not have an opportunity to get weary. It
will be a great day in the history of Monon
gahela county, and none realize it more than
the citizens of that county and surrounding
"Yes. In many ways Pittsburg will be
the gainer. This city is the natural metrop
olis for that section of country, and what
now goes to Baltimore will naturally come
to Pittsburg. Wheeling has some trade
with that section, but Baltimore has the
bulk of the trade. With the waterway
opened, neither Baltimore nor Wheeling can
begin to compete with Pittsburg. Freights
on tbe Baltimore and Ohio road are so high
and so irregular that Morgantown merchants
and live stock dealers will hardly give them
a passing thought in the future. It was a
case of necessity before, now the river will
be a saving on freight and greater conven
ience. I have heard merchants say that
they have bad goods ten days and two weeks
on the way from Baltimore, while now goods
shipped from here in the afternoon will be
on' the wharf in Morgantown next morning.
And do you suppose for a moment that there
is any question as to the source that large
community will come to lor supplies,
especially when Pittsburg manufacturers
and wholesale dealers can quote prices
about as low as Baltimore.
"I said a large community, and I will en
large upon that, too. It is one of the largest
and most progressive along the river. I
make that assertion because I know whereof
I speak. Morgantown, a few years ago, and
Morgantown to-day, are not to be compared
in a business and financial sense. In addi
tion to the national banks, there are three
or four private banking houses, and while
there is nothing compulsory upon them to
publish statements, tbe national bank state
ments show an increase of more than 100
per cent, and I was informed by directors in
the other banks that tbe increase in their
deposits would show equally well. Besides
a better system of management on the part
of the farmers, in directing their attention
to stock of all kinds and the best suited for
that mountainous region, the oil and gas
discoveries have thrown many thousands of
dollars in the country, and also the vast
coal and iron deposits thai have been pur
chased by speculators, in view of water and
rail communication with the Pittsburg
A EICH IBON ORE SECTION.
"Take the Cheat river section, which will
soon have a railroad connecting: with a
permanent water route, and see the vast de
posits. J.ne ore snows along botn sides ot
the Cheat river, which stream cuts through
it for two miles. Above it is the big vein
of limestone and the four and seven foot
vein of coal. At the middle of the two
miles in which the ore is seen above the
water the hill is 1,150 feet. Here the vein
is about 500 feet above the river bed.
Above the ore is sand rock, then limestone,
next the four-foot vein of coal, and above it
the seven-foot vein. Parties who have come
here from a distance to examine it found the
ore vein 15 feet thick, with no partings or
other interruptions, and it assayed at 70 per
cent. There are three veins of clay; the
black clay, the pot clay, nsed for making
flass pots, and the regular fire clay, of a
ne quality. The whole section abounds in
the most valuable of minerals, and Morgan
town will be the natnral port for the distri
bution of these minerals to lower markets.
"I was informed by Mr. 1'ickenpaugh,
one of the oldest nierchauts in the town,
that 36 towns and villages draw upon Mor
gantown for their annual supplies, and that
means that Pittsburg merchants will feed
and clothe jnst tbat many additional people,
now enjoyed by Baltimore and Wheeling.
No doubt the merchants of this city are
awake to the occasion and will profit by it,
as Pittsburg people jump upon every avail
able opportunity and let none slip by, hence
the secret of the immense wealth of the city.
"Other instances of the increased wealth
of the county may be mentioned, among
them the revennes of the suspension bridge,
which was built some. 30 years ago, and
never has paid a dividend to the stockhold
ers, while this year I learn from one of tbe
directors a handsome dividend will be de
clared. This is principally attributed to
the oil and gas well supplies that have been
distributed from that point to th( various
fields in the immediate vicinity. The build
ing trade has received an' impetus beyond
anything known in that section. New resi
dences have sprung up on every hand, and
one builder tries to outdo the other until
every conceivable design the architect's
brain can conceive is to be seen. The
Wallace House, the leading hotel of the
city, has failed to accommodate the guests
of "the house. A large addition is being
erected, and while the first floor will be used
lor two large storerooms the upper stories
are being modeled for hotel purposes.
"The Union Improvement Company has
invested considerable capital in the town.
Through the enterprise of this company the
city has a fine water service. The water is
secured from a mountain some miles away,
with a reserve tank of 60,000 barrels ca
pacity on the hill above the city for fire pur
poses. To this company also does the city
owe the blessings of natural gas, which is
piped from Mt Morris. The antiquated
ated fire brigade has been superseded by a
well-equipped fire department, possessing
all the latest improvements in fire appar
atus. You can put it down as certain that
the section I refer to will receive a boom
such as lew sections have been favored with,
and more it will be substantial, as the hills
and mountains hold inexhaustible wealth."

Andrew Carnegie arrived in town last
evening to attend the gathering of the Pan
American Congress in this city and to issue
instructions in regard to the display of the
Carnegie interests to be made for the edifica

Mr. Carnegie is a delegate to the Congress,
and as such he will take more than an ordi

tinguished representatives what his works
can do when they get under way. When
the visitors reach the large plants at Home
stead and Braddock, every department of
the mills will be turned on. Nothing un
usual will be tried, but the mills will show
what tbey can turn out. The most interest
ing department Mr. Carnegie expects to
show the delegates is the finished rail mill
at Braddock. The mill turns out 1,000 tons
of rails per day. At Homestead, also, the
company expects to surprise the South
Americans at their enormous output one
of the special and newest features at this
plant is the steel railroad tie machine. They
expect to find a market for some of the ties
in South and Central America.

CATHOLICS WANT MOKE BOOM.
Over 800 Pupil Now Attending; the Soho
Rev. Father Corcoran, pastor of St.
Agnes Church, at Soho, has found it neces
sary to increase the number of his school
rooms and extend the facilities ot the
parochial institution in order to accommo
date the Catholic children who wish to at
tend the school.
At the several masses in his church yes
terday, Father Corcoran took up the usual
monthly collection and urged the people to
contribute liberally. The canse of the ap
peal was the necessity of increasing the
schools. He stated that they now had an
attendance of over 800 pupils weekly and
the number was growing, in order to ac
commodate the children he said he would
have to build two additional rooms to the
present school building.
Notwithstanding the large increase in
attendance at the Catholic school, the Four
teenth ward Dublic school teachers say there
has been no decrease in attendance. Friends
of the Catholic school say this is wrong.
They claim that there are between 200 and
300 children now attendiug the parochial
school that were taken away from the Soho
and Bellefield schools. To teach the pupils
in the parochial schools Father Corcoran
finds it necessary to employ 11 teachers. The
latter are Sisters of Charitv.
