A hero at his country's shrine

The following communication has been ad
' dressed to the editor of this column. 5ke
matter explains itsell:
I have read with much Interest the proceed
ings of Post 63, G. A. R, and its certain resolu
tions objecting to tho erection of Confederate
monuments on the battlefield of Gettysburg.
These resolutions have been indorsed by one
or more posts elsewhere.
Ordinarily this would pass without comment,
is an expression of opinion which certainly the
gallant soldiers of Post ES have a right to utter
unchallenged. I am afraid, however, that it
may give rise to a misconception of fact.
Representing Western Pennsylvania posts as a
member of the official directory of the Gettys
burg Battlefield Memorial Association, it is
proper, perhaps that I should state, and all the
comrades should know, what the basis facts
are before tho discussion extends further and
opinion is crystalized. Every thoughtful man
who has followed the work done at Gettysburg
by the Battlefield Association from thebegin
ninc has long since made up his mind that the
general Government will eventually take it up
and supplementNorthern with Southern mark
ers. No soldier who visits the place to-day,
who has the capacity of learning all the lessons
taught there, comes away without a sense of
the incompleteness that will exist when the
last Northern monument has been dedicated,
and he will also have the feeling that, as it
took two armies to do the righting, so two lines
of battle should be marked to show where they
A GBAXD BATTLEFIELD.
The Gettysburg battlefield is larger than
most soldiers of either army suppose, unless
they have studied it, or until they compare it
with some other locality, the size of which Is
known. While but eight miles, as the crow
flies, from one extremity of the field to the
other, the actual extent of tho TJnlnn battle
lines for the three days, as they doubled and
followed the various positions taken up. aggre
gated 21 miles, and along these lines of battle
strips of land, varying Irom 40 to S00 feet in
width, have been purchased, avenues opened.
drivewavB constructed, monuments and flank
stones erected. Parallel with these, but on the
outer circle, and hence longer, were the rebel
lines, which aggregate 23 miles for the three
days, yet not one rod of these has been opened
or marked, and but one Confederate monument
or marker is placed anywbetc on the ground.
In other words, there is nothing to show that
the Union army, with all its avenues and monu
ments, had an opponent at Gettysburg! If the
Grand Army veterans desire that the fact be
noted that there was an enemy on the ground,
this knowledge must be preserved by roads,
avenues and monuments. The monuments
must not. of course, have carved upon tnem
anv glorification of treason, but only record of
fact. The one Confederate monument now at
Gettysburg, permitted by the association, is of
a. Maryland reeiment, and that marks a fact of
the battle, and it has that fact alone carved on
its panels. The legend is in no possible way
offensive. A resolution on the books of the
Battlefield Association forbids the erection of
any Confederate marker without its entire
plan, its legend and position first being ap
proved by the Committee on Legends and Bites.
There is to be
KO TTATC OF MONUMENTS.
As an ornamental battlefield, Gettysburg has
no equal in any country, but as only the posi
tions of one side are marked, it really possesses
no tactical value whatever. Pleasure seekers
will visit and enjoy that remarkable field as it
Is; but celebrated tourists and students of his
tory will exclaim, "Was there no opposing force
at Gettysburg?" With both sideB marked,
Gettysburg would be the most remarkable ob
ject lesson in the world. Along the Confederate
battle lines, moved 36 brigades of infantry and
four of cavalry. To prorerly mark these the
association is urging on Congress an appropria
tion to place 94 large iron tablets, 201 regimental
markers. C5 battery markers, and other his
torical tablets to designate lines, changes of
position avenues, flanks, etc Are the veterans

Army of the Potomac known, yet the visitor
must depend entirely on his own imagination
or that of bis hack driver for the 14 miles of
rebel battle lines. Shall this knowledge be
preserved to history, or shall it be lost torever?
We have heard the regrettul expression so
often by visiting comrades, "I wonder what
rebel regiment was fighting ns bereT" Visitors
daily express surprise and regret that only one
side is represented in the markers, and no at

SOT FOE SENTIMENT,
but for history. Every day makes it more diffi
cult. There arc no veteran associations in the
South to preserve records; rebel officers are
scattered over the world; no person in Gettys
burg can trace the rebel lines. Fortunately,
the association can help the general Govern
ment now; but if our comrades oppose it, the
matter may drop; Congress will become in
different, and one of these davs pass some bill
In a very different shape, passed from a Con
federate standpoint, beyond our power to con
trol, offensive in every detail.
Of the 120 general officers of the Union army
who served at Gettysburg, 72 are now dead,
and a large portion of those who remain are
fast becoming incapacitated. The opportunity
passes; men die: the work is half done 1
The only Confederate monument at Gettys
burg is simply a marker; it bears no inscription
which in any way is offensive, nor does it glorify
the rebellion. It simply shows where that one
rebel regiment fought. Its legend Is correct
and accurate history. As l'ost SS opposes that
one, I have written this on the ground that it
would oppose any Confederate markers what
ever. Are comrades elsewhere ready to pass
resolutions which may induce their representa
tives to vote against an appropriation to open
out avenues and put up markers to show whero
the rebels stood and where they fonghtf The
Army of the Potomac had a Btrong, reliant,
well-equipped and brave opponent in the army

the whole story, not half of it.

Mbs. M. B. Redman, principal of the Hum

the Building industry.
PLANKING FOE APARTMENT HOUSES
From opinions expressed by nearly all the
real estate dealers and agents, it may be ac
cepted as a foregone conclnsion that renting
will be unusually lively next spring.
Houses are Bcarce sow and will be scarcer
then, as there is a constant inflow of popu
lation, and everything will be picked up
early. Business houses will probably bring
more money, as will fine dwellings, but the
general run of tenements will be held at
about present figures.
Although landlords are slow about sign
ing the agreement for a change of moving
day, it is thought they will give it their atten
tion in time for adoption next spring.
As a sign of tho times, Messrs. Black 4 Balrd
have just broken ground for 13 houses on
Slmen avenue, Boulevard place. They will be
frame, will cost 44,000 each, and occupy separ
ato lots. In design they will show a departure
from the Queen Anne style so popular here
abouts. In having a hall in the center. They
will be completed by April L
The feeling among real estate operators is
like that of a boy with his first pair of boots
decidedly buoyant. Activity is visible all along
the line. All descriptions of property are in
demand. Conditions and features are encour
aging and healthful. The appreciation of
values has been so gradual as almost to escape
That tho advance will be maintained there Is
no room to doubt. The prosperity of the city,
its rapid growth, and the flourishing condition
ot labor forbid a backward step. The destiny
ot Pittsburg is onward and upward.
Speaking of labor, Mr. Romero, the Mexican
Minister, while Inspecting, along with the
other Pan-Americans, the operation of wire
drawing at Oliver's mill, remarked to ono of
the proprietors: "American workingmen sur
prise me. They have a manly bearing an air
of self-respect and self-reliance which can be
seen in no other country. They are remarka
bly intelligent, too, capable ot explaining all
the processes of their work, and prompt in the
discharge of their duties. With such men, no
wonder your country is leading all others in
manufacturing. The United States is the only
nation without serfs."
Pittsburg workers are accustomed to such
compliments and they fully deserve them, too.
Tbey will not blush, therefore, when they learn
what Mr. Romero has said of them.
Money is made for man, not man for money.
If a man have a good thing iu view and lacks
capital ot his own to push it, he should borrow.
This has been done and is being done by the
best and wisest men. There 1b an erroneous
idea, a false pride concerning borrowing. The
most successful and Independent men in the
country have not hesitated to borrow. They
have done it in a business-like way. They
lacked the means to press" praiseworthy
projects, and borrowed money, which they re
paid with Interest. The man who borrows
money from a savings bank to build a home
does a wise thing. The man who borrows from
a building and loan association to secure him
self a home does just what he ought to do.
There is no disgrace in borrowing money. The
disgrace lies in not paving it back.
The largest transaction in East End property
for a long time, if not the largest yet made, has
just been consummateiL It was made on a
cash basis, and amounts, to many thousands of
W. C. Stewart sold for John R. and Jonas H.
Baum, executors of the Kitty Roup estate, to

of the Baum Grove property, being the tract
bounded on the north by Coral avenue, on the
south by Center avenue, on tho east by Negley
avenue and'on the west by Fairmount avenue,
west of and adjoining the plan of lots now be
ing sold by John F. Baxter, and Is the choicest
property In the entire tract The ground is
high and covered with trees, faces the south
east and commands a fine view of the entire
Degley avenue is now paved and sewered,
and the Mellons will immediately commence to
sewer, pave and improve all other avenues
through this property and seU lots, through
their agent, John F. Baxter.
The movement for the introduction of apart
ment houses in Pittsburg is taking shape.
Architects Alston and Heckert are preparing
plans for one which will cost $125,000. The lo
cation ot the building, which will be in the
upper part of the city, has been determined
upon, but will not be announced until the pro
jectors are ready to begin operations, which
will be early next spring. Two other buildings
of the same kind are in contemplation.
There is no reason why they should not be as
popular in Pittsburg as In other cities, Cleve
land, for instance, where land is less valuable.
Mount Airy, the land which Mrs. Scheuley
has donated to the city for a park Is only 20
minutes' drive from the Court House. The
nearest point of the park to the city Is at Bo
quet and Joncaire streets, which intersect with
Forbes street and Fifth avenue, about two
miles from the City HalL On ono side it is
bounded by the wettf ork of Four Mile run and
by the Junction Railroad. On another side it
is confined by Forward avenue, which Is lo
cated on Four Mile run, and reaches to within
800 feet of Second avenue.
Tho property of the Murdoch heirs adjoins it
on one side, and Judge Magee and Mr. Hoch
aro the owners of lands which lie adjacent.
Pittsburg builders should not entertain the
idea that they are putting up all the houses in
tho country. It should encourage them to
know that they have plenty of company. It Is
stated that about 10,000 houses havo been
erectod in New York this season, that all of
tbcm are occupied, and the demand unsatis
fied. Tho same is true of Brooklyn, Jersey
City, and in a larger sense of Philadelphia.
But activity in building Is not confined to the
East. It Is making great strides in the West
and South. Pittsburg must build, and build
on an extensive scale, or fall behind In the race
On the S2d Inst a charter will be applied
for for the McEee's Rocks Coke Company.
The incorporators are N. F. Bantord, of the
Sanford Coke Company; George S. Griscom,
formerly proprietor of the Monongahela
House, and now an officer of the Pittsburg and
Lake Erie Railroad; H. O. BonncU, of Youngs
town, and Samuel Mathers and James Pick
and. The company will mine coal and oper
ate coke ovens along the Pittsburg and Lake
Erie Railroad, near McKee's Rocks, where the

Cotton used to be king. Then coal was
crowned. Now coke Is a candidate for regal
honors. An aristocracy of industry is a good
thing for any country to have.
The close of lake navigation will afford
ample relief from the car famine, by releasing
a largo amount of rolling stock for use in other
directions. The difficulty of transportation
has been a serious detriment to the business
interests of FlttsDurg, as well as the country
at large, all season, and it is to be hoped that
the railroad companies will take early steps to
prevent a recurrence of the evil.
As an earnest of this the Pennsylvania Rail
road Is building 6,000 freight and coal cars at
Altoona, and the Reading Railroad In addition
to 1,000 gondola and hopper-bottom cars tnrned
out a short time ago, is soliciting proposals lor
8.500 more. It is stated that every line between
Chicago and the Missouri river is preparing to
make large additions to Its rolling stock.
The grumbler, who made himself obnoxious
last spring by his lugubrious predictions of a
crash in real estate, and nearly everything else,
which exhibited sign of activity, has not bees
seen in Pittsburg for along time. -

SUNDAY, ' NOVEMBER
Unexpectedly Bearish Conditions Cause a
Break All Along-the Line.
The oil bulls encountered a Waterloo Tester
day, bearish influences being too powerful for
prices to bold up under. The consequence was
a bad break, which may prove the forerunner
of more to come.
The. market opened fairly steady, but soon
weakened on the pipe line report, which
showod an increase of 112,000 in certificates,
whereas a decrease had been expected, and
heavy selling by New York and Oil City. .Pitts
burgmade made a gallant effort to withstand
the raid, buying liberally; but the drift was too
strong to be resisted. There was considerable
excitement at times during the session, and
trading was lively.
The market opened at SI UK, which was also
the highest; lowest, Jl 0 closing, Jl 0
The net reduction in stock during the month
was 721,000 barrels, excluding the Western and
Atlantic Pipe Line, which shows a small de
crease, against an increase the previous month.
To-day's clearances were J.328AXX) barrels.
Clearances for the week were 8,337,000 bar
rels. A broker remarked just after the close of
business : ''I think the expected turn has
come. The market is too uncertain to justify
active efforts in its support, and it will sink of
its own weight, to say nothing of the help it
will receive from the New York crowd and the
Btandard. I will not be surprised if the price
drops to a dollar next week. Another bear
raid tuchaswebavehad to-day will swamp It."
Washington county news was to the follow
ing effect: Murphy Bros.' Richie well is drilled
nine bits in the sand and has filled up 1,000 feet.
This is one of the most important wells in this
territory. The McGovern well is drilling in
the Gordon and showing up nicely. An oil
man who has just returned from Manuington
says that the Hamilton well isstandlog uutubed
and that moro leasing is being done in this
The development of the Tnrkey Foot oil
region, lu Hancock county. W. Va., has been
especially marked in the last few weeks. Staley
and McDonald's well, on the Craig farm, was
the last to come in. It is a 125-barrel-a-day
gusher and there are now 101 producing wells
in the territory, and about 20 more are being
drilled. Only 35 ot the wells suns: since this
field was opened have been non-productive.
Ruff & Co.'s No. 2 on Bolon farm in tne 100
foot district, Butler county, reached the sand
on Friday, and will be good for 75 barrels per
day. This well is somewhat in advance of

New Yobs, November 9. The stock market
was active and feverish to-day, bnt most of the
time displayed a strong tone, which resulted in
Irregular changes for the day, bnt enabled tome
stocks to score material advances. The temper
of the room was reactionary again this morning,
and while the bulls were Inclined to hold off,
the bears were still aggressive, and succeeded
in opening the market generally from f to J
per cent lower than It closed last evening, with
the Grangers' showing the more important
losses. London was a buyer to a limited extent,
and Boston purchased more liberally, especially
of Atchison, in which the influential indorse

There were buying orders In the hands of
commission houses, which soon made them
selves felt after the opening, and while the
Grangers held back, the Coalers wereifirm,
and Atchison and Lead Trust were especially
strong, the latter rising V-A per cent in the first
hour, while a fractional improvement occurred
in the regular list. Among the specialties
Tennessee Coal was also particularly strong,
and scored an extreme rise of 1 per cent,
though a portion of this was afterward lost
when the bear pressure was resumed. The
Grangers held in this reaction, though no par
ticularly weak spot was developed, and the
attack was soon suspended when fresh buying
for the long account appeared and a material
further advance took place all over the list.

HISS LYDIA MORGAN.
Whom 20 doctors said must; die of consumption.
Her disease was caused by catarrh. She says:
"lnad a short hacking cough, tightness in the
chest, short breath, and I felt tired all the time.
As I grew weaker I suffered with those .terrible
night sweats. My father took me to 20 phys
icians, who said I could not be cured. I doc
tored with many physicians, but got no better.
After 14 years of suffering I began treatment
with the physicians of the Catarrh and Dyspep
sia Institute, 3 Penn avenue, to whom I owe
my recovery. My cough li gone; I nave no
dizziness, ringing in the ears, headache or night
sweats any more. The pain and soreness in my
stomach have left me; my food digests well, so
that now no gas forms in my stomach. My
throat used to be so sore, I could hardly swal
low; that is cured. I feel well and strong, and
why should I not praise these doctors for thus
saving me from such an untimely death!"-
