with nearly everybody. Mr. Carnegie, be
tween shakes, said to The Dispatch man:
"I consider that it would scarcely be proper
lor me to say anything about the objects of
the Congress. I am traveling -with the,
delegates and hearing what they have to say,
and in advance of the formal sessions, I do
Hot care to say anying."
Ex-Senator John B. Henderson, of St
"Louis, -was found -when he had a few mo
ments of leisure, outside of the whirl. He
said: "In the course of our journeys about
the country the delegates have informally
discussed the objects of the conference.
Nothing has been done in the way of
coming to formal conclusions, and I take it
that it would be improper to do so until the
formal sessions begin at Washington.
The journey has served to make the dele
Sates acquainted with one another. There
is an evident desire among the foreicn dele
pates to cultivate closer relations with the
"United States. They desire their trade
with this country increased, and it is my
opinion that they are ready to grant to us
what they would not grant to any other na
tion. Ot course, nobody contemplates any
political union, unless it be that as far as
possible, without impairing their revenues,
they may grant a large measure of free
trade in the commerce of all the American
States: something like Zollverein among the
German States.
"It is impossible to say what the dele
gates consider to be the most remarkable
city or thing that they have seen. Every
day they see new cause for wonderment.
Every place has its special revelation."
Judge Morris M. Estee arrived from
Union City at 8 P. SL, and participated in
he reception.

The police regulations at the Mononga
lela House last night were admirably car
ried out under the direction of Inspector
McAleese and Captain Dan Sylvns. Five
of Chief Brown's "Finest" were in uniform
in the corridors of the hotel, and Superin
tendent O'Mara, Detective Sol Coulson and
others in plain clothes walked around and
watched the interests of the visitors.
The people present embraced the best
citizens of Allegheny county, and that may
be regarded as the indication of the attend
ance better than any 400 list of New York
could convey. There were labor men pres
ent, "William "Weihe, President, and "Will
iam Martin, Secretary of the Amalgamated
Association of Iron and Steel "Workers,
jiromenading the reception room with An
drew Carnegie, B. F. Jones and "William
Park. J. B. Scott was asked for a list of the
people invited to get an idea of who were
present and replied: "It is impossible to
tell you who are here, but one thing is cer
tain there is a large number present who
were not invited." He closed the door of
his private room as he said so, and evidently
thought the number present included more
than were needed for the cultivation of the
business interests of Pittsburg in relation to
South American trade.
Dnring the promenade last evening in the
-fining room of the Monongahela House these
jieople were noticed among the SOO present:

Tho Supper to the Delegates at tfao Rfonon
cahela Honsc Presentation of Pretty
Medals to tbe Guests.
The Pan-American delegates and the
Pittsburg committeemen sat down to snpper
at the Monongahela House at 6 o'clock.
About 90 gentlemen were present. The
dinner was a social one. After the meal
lad been pretty well demolished, Congress
man John Dalzell arose and made a brief
Epeech, as follows:
Fellow-Americans, travelers from this side
of the equator and from beyond, I bid you wel
come to tbe hospitality of the city of Pitts
burg. Travel-worn and necessarily somewhat
weary, as you are, it will be a kindness to you
to make our words of greeting few; be assured,
liowever. that they are hearty and sincere.
"With respect to the great object of your mis
Bion the wedding of these Western Continents,
eo that commercially they may be as near as
can be one, and move with common purpose to
tbe attainment of the highest ends of civiliza
tion we are of one mind: and hence our meet
ing. It is a matter of congratulation that now
at last the opportunity has come to yon and to
ns to materialize the dreams of more than half
a century of statesmanship, and to evoke from
the deliberations of a congress of all
tbe Americas such schemes of international
co-operation and comity aa shall best secure
our mutual prosperity. The things to be ac
complished are patent and on the surface; the
means of their accomplishment will tax yonr
wisdom and conscientious thought. These are
sot now and here tbe proper subjects of dis
cussion. Suffice it to say that we would pro
Tide that forever the banner over us shall De
peace. We would provide that in every harbor
of your continental domains you should greet
as a daily and welcome visitor tbe flag that it is
our pride to honor. We would have it that
we ebould know you and that you should know
us as honorable, merchants, worthy of credit
and receiving it, in great transactions of
mutual profit. Involving our interchangeable
products; to be weighed and measured and paid
mr without necessary resort to our youthful
Jeons in arithmetic And we trust that oat
of exioting circumstances our joint wisdom
may prove fruitful of results without the sac
rifice on the part of any of us of policies,
theories or principles deemed essential.
In such a consummation the city of Pitts
burg has an incalculable interest. At the
headwaters of the Ohio, she commands the
natural highways of the continent Twelve
railroads radiate from her as a center. Her
surrounding hills are filled with mineral wealth
in stores practicably inexhaustible. She grasps
on every hand the territory from which flows
tbe oil that lights the world. Her homes are
heated and her ponderous machinery is turned
by tbe force of natural gas. To her wealth of
natural advantages she has added the pro
pellant force of capital and intelligent labor,
and the multiplying power of inventive genius.
She is distinctively the iron and steel manu
facturing city of the continent; and these
products in varying forms and for innumerable
uses aro known the world over. Her manu
factures of glass of all kinds are unrivaled and
in some shapes reach all quarters of the globe.
Her plate glass, a recent industry, to the ex
tent of an immense output, has driven foreign
competition from onr markets. Steamboats of
her construction are no strangers on your
waters and ber locomotives now make the
echoes of your hills. I cannot describe ber.
We Intend that jou shall see her for j ourselves
this our city set upon an hill, crowned with
the wealth of nature and the industrial
achievements of man. Such as she is she gives
vou kindly greeting a handclasp for tbe indi
vidual whom we would not have a stranger in
this our land; a wish for your prosperity, that
it may be as our own, and sympathy for your
mission, herald, let us hope, of the day when
tbe war drums shall throb no longer and the
battleflags be furled, in the Parliament of Man,
the Federation of the World.
Captain C. "W. Batchellor, of the Com
mittee on Entertainment, then arose and
said that he had a souvenir to present to the
delegates and other gentlemen connected
with the continental tour. It was given as
a memento of the visit to Pittsburg. He
trusted that the gentlemen would wear it
while here as a badge of identification, and
afterward preserve it as a recollection of
the Natural Gas and Iron City. He then
presented to each one of the 66 visitors
present a beautiful medal. It was received
with applause, and several of the Southern
visitors said they considered it the finest
tribute received in any city they had vis
The medal is of bronze, plated with gold.
It consists of a large circular pendant at
tached to a gold bar. The bar bears the
word "Souvenir." In its center is a key
stone showing iu relief a natural gas der
rick and flame. On the obverse of the
medal is a relief of the Pittsburg Exposi
tion building; above it "Pittsburg, 'Gas
City," " and below "Chamber of Com
merce." On the reverse of the medal are
the words, "International American Con
ference, Nov., 1889," surrounded by a
laurel wreath. The visitors all placed this
upon their coat lapels and wore it during
the evening, with apparent pride.
After the tupper Captain Batchellor sent
to the room of each ot the visitors a souve
nir copy of a book entitled "Pittsburg, Its
History and Resources." It is a volume
prepared expresslv for the occasioi?'It is a
union in one voiume of George A. Thurs
ton's two recent books on Pittsburg. The
volume is bound handsomely in morocco
and the edges are gilded Tnese two me
mentos were prepared by Captain Batchel
lor very quietly, and few Pittsburg people
knew of them. The medal was his own de
sign and its work was done by Mr. Heeren,
the jeweler. Captain Batchellor thought
that the tourists had grown weary of speech
making, and he decided to give them a wel
come change in this city. It was at his re
quest that Congressman Dalzell made his
speech brief.
All the Arrantemenls Made by tbe Pennsyl
vania Road Brawn bj One Engine and
lllanned by One Creiv.
The tour now drawing to a close is, in
many respects, the most celebrated railroad
journey ever made in the world. To begin
with the train is a remarkable one. It con
sists of six Pullman vestibnle cars, drawn
by an engine of the Pennsylvania .Railroad
Company, No. 1053. The entire crew of the
train are Pennsylvania Railroad employes,
most of them having been engaged on the
limited express of that line. It is the first
instance in the history of railroading in tbe
United States where a complete train of one
company, drawn by its own engine and run
by its own crew, has been allowed to pass
over tbe lines of other roads. The train will
return to "Washington made up just as it
left there.
The first car is the Esperanza, a Pullman
library and smoking car. It is finished in
bronze and gold, and has a card room, barber
and bath saloon, buffet and escritoire.
A description of the train in detail fol
lows: In the Esperanza car is located a dynamo, by
means of which the train of six cars 19 illumin
ated with electric lights, aud which charges
storage batteries under the cars, capable, when
charged, of running tbe light for ten hours
without tbe use of dynamh. From this dynamo
are lighted tbe signal lights on the rear ot tbe
train; and from it, also. Is established the cur
rent from which may be lighted, at pleasure. In
each section of the different cars, portable
lights, ot eight-candle power each, lor individ
ual ue.
Next comes the Pullman vestibule dining
car, Windsor, finished in oak and olive green,
with a capacity of serving simultaneously 40
persons; the Pullman vestibule sleeping cars,
Washington and Columbus, bnisbed in satin
wood, mahogany and imperial purple, with ma
roon nangings,and lastly the Pullman vestibule
sleeping cars, India and Japan, finished in
satin-wood, mabogany and turquoise blue, with
garnet, purple and maroon bauglngs, and with
drawing rooms finished in ivory, gold aud ma
roon. Baths are connected with the toilet rooms In
theso cars, in which, as in the lavatories
throughout tbe train, hot and cold water is
supplied by air pressure from tanks beneath
the cars. This pressure is obtained from an
improved air pump, located in the combination
car, Esperanza. The train throughout is heated
by steam from the engine.
The tour is tendered to the International
Congress by the Government of the United
States, and' is under the "Personally-Conducted
Tourist System" of the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company. This system was es
tablished about two years ago in the East.
The advance arrangements for the train at
all places are made bv Mr. William "W.
Lord, Jr., traveling passenger agent of the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company.
The entire distance traveled by the train
is 5.40G miles, going over the lines of 29
railroad companies. Over the lines of the
Pennsylvania Company and the Pennsylva
nia Railroad Company, 1,174 miles wlll'have
been traveled. Overthe Chicago, Milwaukee
and St Paul 410 miles have been made. Over
the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and
Omaha, 377 miles; over the Lake Shore aud
Michigan Southern, 561 miles, and over the
New York Central and Hudson Biver, 306
The Congress left "Washington City on the
morning of October 3, and will return to
that point on tbe evening of next Wednesday,
November 13. The time of the trip
is thus just six weeks. The distance

by the tourists. Messrs. Ricketson and
Schmertz made themselves known to Mr.
W. E. Curtis, tbe special agent of the State
Department, and a general introduction
followed. Mr. Carnegie, who is one of the

representing the Spanish-American Commer
cial Union, and S. W. F. Draper, for the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company.
The foreign delegates expressed them
selves generally as feeling well and being
delighted with their tour. The reports that
they have been greatly fatigued by their
journey is not borne out by their statements.
Thev have been well rested, and while some
of them were wearied by railroad travel at
the outset, they have grown accustomed to
their life on the rail.
Mr. Clement Studebaker, of South Bend,
and Judge Morris M. Estee, of San Fran
cisco, were with the party as far as Cincin
nati. From that place Mr. Studebaker re
turned to his Indiana home, and Judge
Estee went to Union City to visit his parents,
who live at that place.
Of the foreign delegates, 13 of whom ar
rived on the special train, Messrs. Velarde,
of Bolivia; Hurtado. ot Colombia; Guzman,
ot Nicaragua, and Zegarra, of Peru, are the
Ministers of their countries at Washington.
Senor Calderon, of Colombia, is Consul Gen
eral to tbe United States. Senor Romero,
who arrived last night on the limited, has
been the Mexican Minister to the United
States lor many years, and is the dean of
the diplomatic corps at Washington. Senor
Caamano, of Ecuador, is ex-President of
that Republic and at present Governor of
One of the most prominent of the visitors
is Judge Jose Alfonso, of Chili. In con
versation on the train he expressed the
heartiest approval of the objects of the con
ference. He said he was entirely in favor
of improving the trade relations between
North and South America. One of the
principal leaders to that improvement he
said he considered to be the increase of ac
quaintance between the people of tbe vari
ous countries. The present trade of Chili,
he siid, is with England, France and Ger
many. Judge Alfonso said he was de
lighted with bis tour and had been highly
edified by what he had seen. Senor Ve
larde, of Bolivia, said that his countrymen
were desirous of extending their trade" with
the United States, and be thought that the
International Congress wonld do much to
promote that extension. "Your manufac
tures" he said, "are not unknown in our
country, and every year they are becoming
better knonn there."
Senor Hurtado, of Colombia, who speaks
Euglish with facility, in talking ot the
commerce between 'his country and the
United States, said that one of the reasons
why it was not more extensive was that the
manufacturers of the United Slates do not
give such long credits as those of Europe.
English, French and German merchants,"
he said, "give credit sometimes for ns long
as two vears, and charge low rates of inter
est The Euglish have been very liberal in
their dealings with our people." Senor
Hurtado spoke of the resources of his coun
try, saying that it was rich in minerals, but
that the mountainous character of the coun
try prevented the extensive working of
Senor Zelaya, of Honduras, in the course
of a brief conversation, said that the main
thing necessary to increase the commerce
between the United States and Central
America wasthe establishment of facilities
for quicker direct communication. Some of
the older members of tbe party speak En
glish imperfectly or scarcely at all. It is
the younger men, who have been attached to
the legations at Washington, who have the
best command of the English language.
The special train drew into the Union
depot at 3:45 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
At least 1300 people were gathered in the
depot, and outside of the gates there were as
many more who crowded to catch sight of
the distinguished visitors. The committee
on carriages, consisting of Major R. Mon
roe, Ralph Bagaley, B. L. Wood, Jr.. A.
Dempster and Peter Dick, were at the depot
r. t?
and met the visitors at the cars. Outside
the gates, at the western end bf the depot.
were 27 carriages to convey the party to the
hotel. A passage through" the crowd was
opened by the police, and the delegates and
members of the reception committee passed
through, by twos, to the carriages. They
were at once driven to the Monongahela
House. Nearly all the foreign gentlemen
retired directly to their rooms, where they
had fires built. A few of them spent some
time before supper in the hotel lobby,
smoking cigarettes and chatting one with
another. Mr. Curtis was kept busy listen
ing to complaints abont baggage, fires, mail,
etc., and did not get a minute's rest.
Many people collected abont the hotel and
tried to secure admittance. Captain Daniel
Silvia was on hand with five police officers,
and held tbe curious in check. A few of the
prominent business men of the city, in addi
tion to those on the Reception Committee,
were admitted to the lobby. President
Schmertz, ot the Chamber of Commerce, re
ceived from Secretary Blaine the following
telegram, in response to the invitation sent
to him on Monday:
Very much regret that I cannot accept your
kind invitation. Owing to pressure of business
it is impossible for mo to leave Washington at
this time.
Opinions of Drleentea About the Bonnty of
American Women.
In an interview with Jose Alfonso last
evening regarding the ladies of America,
and Pittsburg in particular, he said he
thought them very interesting. There was
no comparison, he said, between the ladies
of tbe United States and those of Chili, on
acconnt of tbe Dosition occupied in the
social world by them being so very differ
ent. He thought the ladies in America
felt their importance to a considerable de
gree, but he had found them charming."
Dr. Carlos Silvera Martins found that the
beautiful ladies in the United States kept
his heart in the same conflicting state.
The ladies in his own country have suc
ceeded in doing that. He admires them all
so much it is impossible to devote his whole
heart to any one of them, consequently he is
a handsome bachelor.
Regarding the reception, they united in
saying it was by far the most elegant they
had received. They were profuse in the
use of adjectives in expressing their admira
tion of the decorations of the Monongahela
House. They thought the costumes of tbe
ladies especially tasty and beautiful. Tbey
comprised everything from handsome street
costumes to full dress reception toilets. The
directoire, Watteau, empire, Greek and
Princess styles were all to be s'een aud cor

and Uncle Sam.
Senor Romero, Secretary of State for
Mexico, and representing bis country at the
Pan-American Congress, has so far failed to
profit by his extensive travels through the
States as to appreciate the sweet sim
plicity of the "interview." A re
porter for The Dispatch was de
sirous last night of obtaining
his views onmany points of interest, but
when a leading question, as to "his impres
sions of the country,", was fired at him in
the center of the corridor in tbe Mononga
hela, he commenced to heat n retreat up
stairs. He talked as he walked, however,
and said: "My impressions of your country
are not of recent date. Why, I have been
through it on many occasions before and
have traveled over it Irom Maine to Califor
nia, und really I cannot see how I can an
swer you."
"Well, how about the present relations of
your country with the United States?"
"Everything is tranquil between my
country and the United States, at least I am
not aware of any unpleasantness that exists.
I thought that the official correspondence on
the matter, about which there seemed to be
a misapprehension, would have been suffi
cient to prove that."
Tho Court House Illumination Generally
The Court House tower last night was
illuminated as already described in The
Dispatch in welcome of tbe South Amer
ican visitors. The display was the finest,
according to the statement of Senor Romero
and other members of the delegation in
the way of electric illumination
they had seen since they visited this
country. The blending of colors by the
staining of the globes and the beauty of the
lines composing the shield, vfsth the word
"America" showing up across the top, at
tracted general admiration. The County
Commissioners are very prqud of the show,
and the work of C. R. Shepler, chief engi
neer of the Court House, and his assistants,
is much admired and commended. The
tower will be illuminated again to-night.
Gas Display To-Nlghf.
Mr. D. C. Ripley, of the Committee of
Arrangements, received yesterday from T.
A. Gillespie, Superintendent of the Phila
delphia Gas Company, a letter saying that
it would be convenient for the company to
give a displav of natural gas at the Expo
sition only this evening. To give a good
display on two nights would cause great
inconvenience and expense. The local com
mittee returned its assent. The exhibition
will, therefore, take place to-night and
there will be none to-morrow night
Beautifully Carved Lumber for Decorative
House FInlsblnsr.
There are few exhibits at the Pan-American
Exposition that are attracting more gen
eral attention than that made by Dr. C. L.
Goehring, of Allegheny.
Being something entirely new, and as ar
tistic as it is unique aud useful, it appeals
directly to all classes. It consists of a full
line of samples of beautifully carved lumber
for decorative house finishing, and any other
purpose for which carved or figured lumber
may be used.
The samples of panfjs, wainscoting, ceil
ing, molding, etc.f shown here are suf
ficient to give a fair idea of the many uses
to which this lumber may be nut That it
will be popular there seems to be no doubt,
because the ladies pronounce it just the
thing, because it is prettier thro paper and
richer than fresco.
Some of the effects produced ,bv alternat
ing light and dark woods and mingling
different tones, are remarkably pretty. The
beauty ot it all is that each piece, no matter
how knotty, or gnarly, or burly, is
finished as smoothly as if polished by
hand. There seems to be no end to the fig
ures this machine will make. They are all
geometrical, and consist of curves, wave
lines, diamonds, vines and their various
The singular thing about it is that one
machine does it all at one motion, and as
rapidly as the ordinary planer turns out
plain, straight goods. This makes it possi
ble to have a honse finished in these beauti
ful designs at a cost very little above that
of plain lumber.
Dr. Goehring made similar exhibits at
the Minneapolis, Chicago, St Louis and
Dallas expositions, which led to the sale ot
20 machines, to be delivered as soon as they
can be completed. Architects and build
ers were unanimous in the opinion that this
will revolutionize bouse finishing, as this
artistically carved and highly finished lum
ber will cost no more tlfan the plainest
finish. '
The machine on which this lumber was
dressed may be seen at the shops on North
avenue, near the railroad, Allegheny. The
contract for building the new ones has been
given to J. S. Graham & Co., Rochester,
N. Y. They will soon put their shop on
double turn in order to meet the demand.
The company organized to operate the
machines in Western Pennsylvania, East
ern Ohio and West Virginia is getting
things in shape to begin filling orders very

The Flan of Campaign for Next Spring of
the Local Democracy.
The topic of general discussion yesterday
was the election, and its effects upon Alle
gheny county politics. There was a very
quiet amount of satisfaction among the
friends of Harry J. Ford in the postoffice
fight at the rebuke which the administration
has received in the States voting. It. was said
that when John Dalzell had almost the cast
ing vote in the House of Congress there was
a decided leaning toward giving him the
Congressional rights of appointing the post
master. After the admission of the new
States, which settled the Republican major
ity in Congress, it was said that the admin
istration and Senator Quay both became
more independent, and said that they wonld
consider the matter from their own stand
point Tuesday's elections made another change
in the programme, and the latest news from
Washington was to the effect that the office
of Collector of the Port would be filled to
day. This had previously been offered to
Senator Rutan, according to tbe statement
of one of John Neeb's friends, so as to leave
the Senatorial track clear lor Mr. Speer.
Mr. Rntan peremptorily declined the ap
pointment while he was upon his European
trip, but on last Friday night it was stated
that he telegraphed the fact that he would
reconsider his declination. This virtually
gives tbe office to Senator Rutan, if he noti
fied the powers that be he was willing to
accept it
C. L. Magee was asked last night if he
thought tbe change would be made to-day,
and said he supposed the postmastership
would be the first Federal office arranged,
but at the same time would not be sur
prised if the appointments would all be
settled in a very short time after the elec
tions of Tucsdar.
S. D. Warmcastle said he had seen Sena
tor Quay yesterday afternoon, and nothing
had been mentioned about the CollectorshiD
appointment; that ir it were to be made to
day, tbe Senator would undoubtedly have
mentioned the fact Mr. Warmcastle also
thought that the first appointment which
would show up would be the postmastership,
and that, he thought, would be made very
shortly. He would not venture upon a pre
diction iff the personality ot the postmaster,
bnt had an idea that the first letters 'of his
name would be J. S. McKean.
Congressman John Dalzell was captured
at the Pan-American reception last night
and asked what he thought of the probabil
ity of federal appointments being made
this week. He laughed at the report that
the appointments would be made so soon,
but s.ud that if something was not done
pretty soon it would be very appropriate
lor someone to go down to Washington and
wake up the President, who has apparently
gone to sleep upon the question.
Senator Rutan said lust night that he had
been offered a position this year, but he pro
posed to run for the Senate, and he was not
after a Federal office, and neither does he
want one nor would he accept
It has been common talk for some time
among politicians on the street that FranE
Case is a candidate for the Collectorship,
but his friends state that Mr. Case is skir
mishing for something else. Mr. Case
made an appointment with a reporter last
night to talk about the collectorship, but
he could not be lound when the hour ar
rived. The air is full of rumors, however,
and the lightning is liable to strike some
one in Pittsburg very soon in the way of
Federal appointments.
Tte election of Mr. Johnston on Tuesdays
nas given tne .Democracy great nopes lor tbe
l ebruary ngnt At a meeting ot the Demo
cratic leaders held early yesterday morning
it was agreed that Judge "Bailey should be
the nominee for Mayor. The campaign it
was tbonght could be better carried out
by attacKing the city government
on the score of extravagance
and general misuse of the taxpayers' money
than by any personal fight against Mr.
Gourlay, whose record leaves no opportun
ity for such an attack. The principal point
in the attack will be based upon the testi
mony of Inspector McAleese at a recent
trial that there are 700 speak-easies in active
operation in Pittsburg. Injction on the
part of the Police Bureau will be one of the
principal planks in the spring Democratic
Inspector McAleese was seen last night
and asked what he thought of the pro
gramme. He replied: "There is but little
use in reviewing that question. It I had
about twice the force I now have I might do
something with the speak-easy business. It
really belongs to the couuty officials. On
Sunday tbe public sees through the
papers what I have done, or rather
what the bureau has done. That is
the time when the speak-easy business
becomes disorderly and comes under our
supervision. The weekday work in a speak
easy ifl comparatively nothing and should
be watched by the constables of the various
wards. The police have nothing to do with
them until they make crowds and create
disturbances, when they are at once pulled
iu without the slightest ceremony.
"There is another point which our Demo
cratic friends should remember, aud that is
nine out of ten speak-easv proprietors are
Democrats, as can easily be shown by their
records, and names, so if the Democratic
contingent find fault with the police for be
ing too lenient with their co-workers, it is
very strange."
They Arc Wn tclilng the Bridge to bo Bnllt
Near the Blr Sandy.
The river men will have something to say
before the bridge of the West Virginia and
Ironton Railway Company, to be con
structed across the Ohio, near the Big
Sandy river, is built. The company has
given notice that the design and drawings
of the proposed bridge and piers, with
maps and other information, will be sub
mitted to Secretary Proctor, ot the War De
partment, for his examination. Tbe river
men and coal operators will also examine
these plans and maps. If the bridge is
built high enough and the piers set far
enough apart, they will offer no interfer
ence; but if the channel is obstructed in any
way, they will enter a protest with the Sec
retary. John A. Wood said yesterday that
hereafter the river men would take good
care not to allow the river to be obstructed
as it is now at Beaver Falls.
A Member of the Flinn CInb Expelled for
Yotinc tbe Wrone Ticket.
The Flinn Republican Club, of the
Eleventh ward, held its regular meeting
last night. Mr. Samuel Harris presided.
"Broad-Ax" Smith started the ball by
moving that U. S. McGuire be expelled
from the club on the grounds that he failed
to live up to the rules by working for
"Dick" Johnston on Tuesday. McGuire
was not present, and after some discussion
the motion was adopted. "Broad-Ax" said
if any others were found to have followed
the same course, they would also be ex
pelled. A committee of ten was appointed
to elect a delegate to the city convention to
be held next Tuesday.

Alderman Hartman Had a Picnic Last Night
Father nnd Mother. Brother and Sitter,
Punching; Each Other.
Seldom does such a lively hearing take
place in an ordinary criminal suit as that
which occurred in Alderman Hartman's
office last night It is getting a little beyond
tbe ordinary when witnesses on opposite
sides of a case engage in calling each other
vulgar names, come to blows and require
the services of officers to keep them within
peaceable bounds.
Mrs. Elizabeth Werling was charged by
her husband Michael Werling, with steal
ing a lot of household furniture and $100 in
money. Mrs. Werling's delense was that
there bad been frequent family quarrels be
tween herself and her husband. The last
one resulted in Mr. Werling telling her to
take what she wanted from the house and
leave him, which she did. At the hearing
last night, Werling said he had married
Mrs. Werling two years ago. 6he
had been married previously and had
several childien. He had also been married
before and had three children. They had
only been married a short time when the
children began to make trouble in the
household. Once Mrs. Werling called the
police and had her husband arrested.
While he was being taken to the Twenty
eighth ward station house he says Officer
William Williams took $15 from him.
Mrs. Werling's testimonv was to the ef
fect that her hnsband drank and neglected
her and her children to look after bis own.
The night she caused his "arrest- he kicked
her out of bed.
The fun began when Werling's children
testified in their father's behalf while Mrs.
Werling's daughter was her only witness.
While one of Werline's bovs was telling
how unpleasant the girl made times for his
father by her incorrigibility, the latter in
terrupted him with, "You're a liar!"
"Who's a liar?" retorted the young lad,
and would have struck ber but tor his
father, who caught him by the arm. He
was interrupted again. The father and
mother, son and daughter and another wit
ness got involved in the confusion this
time. Vile epithets were applied to
each other, several people were on their feet,
apparently ready to do battle, and matters
began to look pretty serious, when Alder
man Hartman culled in Constable Schuet
zinger, who was in the adjoining room.
The office was crowded almost to suffoca
tion, and it was with great difficulty that
quiet was restored-. Several other witnesses
gave corroborative testimonv and the hear
ing was adjourned until Friday evening.
Mrs. Werling said all she wanted was for
her husband to give her her 14 months old
child and let her alone, but this he said he
would never do.
The Nnn of Kenmaro Says Two Priests
Called on Her Yesterday.
Miss M. F. Cusack, the "Nun of Ken
mare," was called upon by quite a number
of persons yesterday. Among them, she
said, was a Catholic priest, prominent mem
bers of tbe church and a member of the
faculty of the Catholic college in this city.
Miss Cusack has decided to give a lecture
on "Convent Life" at Lafayette Hall next
Monday evening. After her lecture she
will go to Detroit. She was to have lec
tured in Detroit last week, but was pre
vented by antagonistic influences from se
curing a hall. The Detroit Y. M. C. A.
has taken up her cause, however, and she
will appear under its auspices.

Interesting Lecture by George J Lindner,
the Missionary.
Mr. 'George J. Lindner, the Hebrew mis
sionary, delivered one of his lectures last
night to a large audience at the First U. P.
Church, on Seventh avenue. His subject
was, "The Jews in Spain." During his re
marks, Mr. Lindner said: "The history of
tbe Hebrews is one long monotonous record.
In all lands tbey have been treated with the
same merciless cruelty. Let us select one
page from the many-leaved narrative. In
no European country have darker stains
fallen on tbe white livery of Christianity"
than in Spain. Intolerance and bigotry,
merciless persecution and unrelenting
cruelty, such have been the characteristics
of Spanish Catholicism in the past. And
notwithstanding the boasted enlightenment
and progress of the present, rerent events
have shown that the old cruel spirit is not
dead, that the fire still smolders, that the
sword is not rusted in its scabbard."
The speaker continued further, dwelling
especially on the history of the Inquisition.
Railroad Officials to Make an Inspection of
tbo New B. Jt O. Feeder.
The opening of the Confluence and Oak
land Railroad will take place to-day. The
road is a new line just completed from Con
fluence to Manor Lands, Garrett county,
Md., and will be a valuable feeder to the
Baltimore and Ohio. It will open up a rich
coal and lumber territory in that section.
A large number of railroad officials and
manufacturers of this eity will leave in a
special train over the Baltimore and Ohio
road at 8 o'clock-this morning for an inspec
tion of the new road. The Baltimore and
Ohio officials will come in from Baltimore
and Philadelphia in a special train and will
meet the Jfittsbnrg party. Joseph M. Craw
ford is President and J. Bavard Henry, of J
Philadelphia, is secretary ot tbe company.
An Important increase has taken place
in the price of diamonds. It is extend
ing to the markets of all countries, and
those contemplating purchases must
look to higher prices in the future.
South Africa supplies the world, and
the product is controlled by large com
panies, viz-, the De Beers, the Consoli
dated Bultfontatne, the Kimberlv Cen
tral, the Pullingerand several others.
The mining of diamonds has not been
profitable to these companies by reason
of the great competition and the ex
pense of working the mines at their
present depth.
Tbe De Beers Company ha3 lately se
cured a large interest in almost all these
mines, which has resulted in tbe forma
tion of a syndicate controlling tbe sup
ply. The output of diamonds is now
limited; the shares of tbe companies
have greatly increased in value, and the
rough diamonds have advanced 80 per
cent in price. The quantity of cut dia
monds in dealers' hands is very limited
less than for years and it is highly
probable that prices will steadily ad
vance. We obtain our diamonds direct
from the diamond cutters, and by our
connection with a member of the syndi
cate we gained an advance knowledge
of what the state of the diamond mar
ket would be; hence, early placing of
orders to an important amount enables
us to furnish from now till January 1 all
diamonds at the same prices as last year.
Intending purchasers should avail
themselves of an opportunity which
cannot occur again.

Chief Btgelow Hnggests 9tr. Carnegie Might
Help the City With Its Parks.
Chief Bigelow, of the Department of Pub
lic Works, yesterday resumed the subject of
the porks in an indirect way by saying: "I
see that Andrew Carnegie is in the city. It
would not be a bad scheme to see him and
say that the library gift, although very ac
ceptable, would now be a sort of duplication
of benefits. We will have a Caraezie li
brary anyhow when we take in Allegheny,
aud the amount of money he would donate
for library purposes would make a much
better showing iu beautifying ourparks.
By the way, as he is a Scotchman, just'men--tion
that Highland Park would be a nice
place to beautify, and be sure you spell the
name right, as he might think it was
Hiland, and that would never do. Just see
what Mr. Carnegie says on the question,
and I am pretty sure he will agree with
you on the park improvement project"
